  • Networks Whine Over 'Massive Spending Gap' Between GOP and Dems in Wisconsin

    NewsBusters ^ | June 06, 2012 | Kyle Drennen
    Searching for an excuse to explain what went wrong for Democrats in Wisconsin, the broadcast networks blamed "a record-shattering $64 million poured into" the recall election by "conservative out-of-state groups" supporting Republican Governor Scott Walker.   On Wednesday's CBS This Morning, correspondent Bill Plante promoted Obama campaign talking points on the major Democratic loss: "...what it called the 'massive spending gap'. Governor Walker's supporters raised $31 million to $4 million for the challenger, Tom Barrett....with most of that money coming from out of state – a huge chunk of it from the super-PACs." On Tuesday's CBS Evening News, correspondent Dean...

    The unilateral, unprecedented move by the Labor Department with this politically critical data has First Amendment proponents up in arms.The deadline is closing in on a Labor Department order requiring news organizations to use government computers and equipment to distribute sensitive economic data — including the politically important and sometimes unsavory monthly jobs report. Until now, reporters have been provided the Labor data shortly before the embargoed release time to analyze and draft their stories from a lock-up room at the department. When it’s release time, the Labor Department flips a switch to let news organizations transmit over secure lines...

    The White House is sticking by its opposition to an extension of the Bush tax cuts for wealthy Americans despite the increasing number of Democrats voicing support for it, including former President Bill Clinton. Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday that President Obama will not sign an extension. "He will not. Could I be more clear?" Carney said, according to the Associated Press.

    As European leaders grapple with how to preserve their monetary union, Greece is rapidly running out of money. Government coffers could be empty as soon as July, shortly after this month’s pivotal elections. In the worst case, Athens might have to temporarily stop paying for salaries and pensions, along with imports of fuel, food and pharmaceuticals.

    What a difference two years make. Instead of a band of rabble-rousing conservatives, a markedly different group was plotting campaign strategy with House Republican leaders at a recent party headquarters meeting. Gone is the tea party-infused talk of confrontation. This diverse group -- top-tier candidates picked to be in the GOP's "Young Guns" program -- includes an openly gay former Massachusetts state legislator, an African-American female mayor from Utah and an Indian-American Ivy league graduate from California. Unlike the take-no-prisoners approach of two years ago, these candidates stressed the need to work with Democrats to get things done in Washington....

    The Department of Justice told Republican House leadership in a Tuesday letter that it hopes to reach an agreement with congressional overseers on how much information about Operation Fast and Furious it is required to hand over. Congressional Republicans have threatened to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for not fully complying with a 22-part subpoena served last October. The letter comes amid reports that House oversight committee chairman Rep.

    No, it’s not your imagination: President Barack Obama is spending a whole lot of time fundraising, perhaps more than any incumbent president in history. Including this week’s trip to California, he will have spent eight of 24 weekdays during the past month – that’s a third of them - on the road and collecting cash. His event Thursday morning will mark his 153rd fundraiser since announcing his reelection bid last year. That’s nearly double the number that his predecessor George W. Bush had attended by this point in his reelection campaign, according to CBS’s Mark Knoller, who put 43’s early...

    As the world awaits the Supreme Court's ruling on ObamaCare, there's a larger story that the pundits are missing: the court's rejection of the Obama administration's increasingly extreme claims on behalf of unlimited federal power. This term alone, the high court has ruled unanimously against the government on religious liberty, criminal procedure and property rights. When the administration can't get even a single one of the liberal justices to agree with it in these unrelated areas of the law, that's a sign there's something wrong with its constitutional vision.

    Among the people who are disappointed with President Obama, none has more reason to be disappointed than those who thought he was going to be "a uniter, rather than a divider" and that he would "bring us all together." It was a noble hope, but one with no factual foundation. Barack Obama had been a divider all his adult life, especially as a community organizer, and he had repeatedly sought out and allied himself with other dividers, the most blatant of whom was the man whose church he attended for 20 years, Jeremiah Wright. Now, with his presidency on...

Under increasing attack from Mitt Romney's campaign and Republican super-PACs for the unprecedented trillion dollar deficits and $16 trillion debt he has run up during his presidency, Obama claims he has the best fiscal record of any chief executive in the past six decades. Here's what the president said with a straight face: "But what my opponent didn't tell you was that federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any president in...

    Writing in today’s Washington Post, former Obama economist Larry Summers put forth the strange hypothesis that more red ink would improve the federal government’s long-run fiscal position. This sounds like an excuse for more Keynesian spending as part of another so-called stimulus plan, but Summers claims to have a much more modest goal of prudent financial management.And if we assume there’s no hidden agenda, what he’s proposing isn’t unreasonable.But before floating his idea, Summers starts with some skepticism about more easy-money policy from the Fed. Many in the United States and Europe are arguing for further quantitative easing to bring...

    Have you heard of SWATing? Someone calls 911 falsely claiming that a person has killed someone or is about to do so.

No, I’m not suggesting his death had anything to do with this, however convenient it was for the political Left. Over the past year, strong-arm tactics have been used against prominent...

With Speaker Nancy Pelosi reigning in the U.S. House of Representatives and a filibuster-proof majority dominating the Senate, Obama let then-House Republican Whip Eric Cantor know who was boss in January 2009. “Elections have consequences,” Obama said. “I won.” Any doubt about those consequences...

Unlike the vast majority of elections, which occur on a regular schedule, the recall was a fight the left picked on purpose. They picked it because they thought they could win. And they were wrong. It wasn't even close. With two-thirds of the votes reported late...

    Anyone who claims that teachers unions exist to improve public education is misinformed or lying. The unions have become blatantly political organizations that spend most of their time and resources trying to maintain their domination of public schools and school budgets. When an occassional reformer, like Wisconsion Gov. Scott Walker, comes along and questions their self-serving agendas, they turn into political assasination machines. And they are not ashamed to use taxpayer-funded schools to push their agendas. The latest evidence comes from Milwaukee Teachers Education Association President Bob Peterson, who boasted this week about his union's efforts to sway voters, including...

    If the polls are right, the vote today in Wisconsin on whether to recall Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four Republican state senators could amount to a redial of their original victory. Voters who first elected the conservative Walker on a promise to fix the state’s dismal economy and crushing debt appear ready to reaffirm their judgment. They would be making the right decision, given the results Gov. Walker appears to have produced. When Walker ran for governor, he promised to eliminate the state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit without raising taxes. He says he has done this....

    There are ongoing debates over tax hikes and cuts in the United States domestic front, which makes it extremely frightening to imagine a world in which third-party, international organizations could impose taxes on countries. Global taxes would give the power to tax overseas to organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN). The Center for Freedom and Prosperity released a study titled “Global Taxes Threaten Fiscal Sovereignty and Democratic Accountability” which can be viewed here. If these organizations succeed in passing their proposed global taxes, they would be applied in a "one size fits all"...

    Last Friday morning the anxiously awaited U.S. jobs report for the month of May was released to gasps of disbelief by investment professionals and politicians. The assembled economic prognosticators on CNBC's Squawk Box morning stock market show were debating their forecasts calling for anywhere from 125,000 to 165,000 jobs having been created by the American economy last month prior to the government's statistical release. The consensus estimate, as reported by the CNBC anchors was about 150,000-155,000 jobs. One of the CNBC forecasters had reduced her estimate in the prior 24 hours after Thursday's release of the ADP proprietary report of...

    Over the weekend, Gov. Scott Walker told reporters that he hadn't made any preparations for a recount. Greta Van Susteren put the question to Wisconsin AG J. B. Van Hollen instead, as well as questions of enforcement and perhaps some competition from the Department of Justice. Van Hollen also discusses voter fraud, and the need for the voter ID law that is presently on hold in Wisconsin:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO A recount would probably not involve the state's Attorney General, not unless there was evidence of criminal wrongdoing in the vote tabulation. Recounts would either be triggered by...

    Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe plans to highlight a little-known speech by an EPA regional administrator who admitted on video that the Obama’s administration’s air regulations will kill the coal industry. “Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country. Just two days ago, the decision on greenhouse gas performance standard and saying basically gas plants are the performance standard which means if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem. That was a huge decision,” Region 1 EPA Administrator Curtis “Curt” Spalding says, in footage filmed at Yale University. “You can’t imagine...

    The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) proposes that the U.S. Army be used to plan, command, and carry out (with the help of civilian law enforcement) domestic police missions. So says a story appearing in the May/June issue of the influential organization’s official journal, Foreign Affairs. The article lacks a single reference to the Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibits such actions. In an article penned by Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, General Raymond T. Odierno, the CFR would see the Army used to address “challenges in the United States itself” in order to keep the homeland safe from
