After months of speculation surrounding the subject of Glenn Beck’s future at Fox News, it has been confirmed that Beck will not be renewing his contract to extend the Glenn Beck program after its expiration in December. Despite official announcements of the news, neither Beck nor the network declared a final departure date.
On Tuesday, Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc., left) presented his party's version of a 2012 federal budget that they call the "Path to Prosperity."
Everyone's talking about it. Either it's a historic and "sweeping reduction" in the size of government or it's an attack on the government itself and an attempt to "reduce government so that it fits in a bath tub."
As the rhetoric is increasing, so are the chances for a government shutdown. Following a meeting with House Speaker John Boehner and Senate leader Harry Reid, President Obama expressed his exasperation: "As I’ve said before, we have now matched the number that the speaker originally sought. The only question is whether politics or ideology are going to get in the way of preventing a government shutdown."
Third in size of party, but first to defend the Constitution. The Libertarian Party is not impressed with Representative Paul Ryan’s proposed federal budget.
Ever since the GOP’s announcement of a substantially smaller federal budget, conservative blogs daily have etched new tributes on the monument to Paul Ryan's legislative achievements.
Millions of supporters are scooting closer to the edges of their seats thanks to a comment made by Congressman Ron Paul during an interview Tuesday with Alex Jones (pictured, left).
When asked by Jones if he will seek the White House in 2012, the Texas representative said he will likely make the final decision within a month.
The USA Patriot Act could be used to target law-abiding gun owners. Section 206 of the Act allows “John Doe” roving wiretaps, which authorize wide searches of people without even providing the name of the target to a court. The section merely requires a “statement of facts showing that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the tangible things sought are relevant to an authorized investigation.” Of course, “relevant to an investigation” does not mean that a crime has been committed or will ever be committed.
Now that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has unveiled his “Path to Prosperity” budget, nearly all discussion is focusing on the details and not on the proper role of government. Writing in the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, Ryan said that "our budget ... cuts $6.2 trillion in spending from the president’s budget over the next 10 years, reduces the debt as a percentage of the economy, and puts the nation on a path to actually pay off our national debt." He also said that it "brings federal spending to below 20% of gross domestic product, consistent with the postwar average, and reduces deficits by $4.4 trillion."
Moments ago, the United States House of Representatives voted 241 to 178 in favor of taking up the FCC network neutrality rule-blocking resolution under a closed rule, meaning that debate was limited to one hour and no amendments were permitted. The vote came after the debate in the full House Tuesday, which also lasted an hour, which invalidates the FCC�s vote to expand its net neutrality guidelines.
Rick Perry. No other two words can spark the ire, or even alarm, of informed Texans and other Americans when considering that the Texas Republican Governor might toss his Stetson into the 2012 Presidential ring. Perry, the 47th Lone Star Governor, holds the record for the longest gubernatorial tenure in Texas history. The reason for the ire and alarm is Perry’s presentation of himself as a fiscal and social conservative. The facts point a different direction.
