    Comptroller Susan Combs on Thursday added her name to the long list of Texas elected officials who are backing Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst in his bid for the U.S. Senate. Dewhurst has been “relentless and focused on conservative principles,” said Combs, who credited the lieutenant governor for putting Texas in a strong economic position. “Fighting for principle is not always easy and it is not always visible,” Combs said at an Austin news conference. “I will tell you that actions speak a lot louder than words.” The low-key news conference at Run-Tex on Riverside Drive stands in stark contrast to...
  • Is Bachmann being told to apologize or lose her position on House Intelligence Committee?

    Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is getting heat from establishment colleagues over her calls to look more closely into the Muslim Brotherhood and their disturbing influence and infiltration in Congress. Glenn urged people to stand with Bachmann because she is exposing a serious threat to America – it makes one wonder, why would anyone push back? “I want to talk to you about something of the most serious nature I think I have addressed on the air in maybe a year,” Glenn said as he started the show this morning. “Do you remember when I said social justice, and get out of...

    Glenn Beck made no attempt to hide his feelings. In fact, he launched into an absolutely epic rant, furiously condemning not just the Supreme Court, but also the Republican Party and the entire mainstream conservative movement. Beck promoted the upcoming FreePAC event, saying that today’s result just furthered his frustration with regular conservative groups. He told listeners that he was sick of going to CPAC where he can speak out against progressives, get applause from the crowds, and then be betrayed by the “cowards” in charge who are “won’t come out and tell you what they really are”; “covert progressives.”...

    It was not exactly a grand summit of the minds when Randi Rhodes welcomed Cher onto her radio show on Wednesday for almost 20 minutes. First Cher worried about food stamp cuts under President Romney: "If 46 million people have food stamps and Mitt Romney said that was the first thing he was gonna do, then what do those people do?" Rhodes snapped back: "Yeah exactly it’s a good question. What do they do? [Joking] They start eating each other. It is the zombie apocalypse, I am sure. I really am. " Cher added: "Well, look, I’ve been alive for...

    Conservative author Glenn Beck on Sunday took to Twitter to blast New York Times columnist David Brooks for comments he made last year about the talk radio host's predictions concerning Egypt without President Hosni Mubarak. On PBS's Newshour last February, syndicated columnist Mark Shields mentioned Beck in a discussion about how people attending the CPAC convention viewed the goings-on in Egypt from a domestic political perspective: MARK SHIELDS, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: Well, I think it is a lack of self-confidence, surefootedness. They didn`t know what they wanted to say. They weren`t sure. The only one who was really critical that I...
  • Corey Robin: Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are the real ‘Burkeans’

    The Daily Caller ^ | June 22, 2012 | Matt K. Lewis
    Political science professor Corey Robin became interested in the conservative movement during the years leading up to the war in Iraq. His new book, “The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism From Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin,” challenges conventional wisdom regarding the very identity of conservatism. In critiquing conservatism, most liberals concede the movement was once an intellectual force full of interesting and thoughtful people (from Edmund Burke to William F. Buckley), but argue that this once-respectable philosophy metastasized into a movement full of populist demagogues. Robin soundly rejects that premise (which in many circles has become conventional wisdom), calling it a “radical...

    Big changes are afoot in the Glenn Beck empire– his online television network, Glenn Beck Television, will no longer exist as we know it– in its stead, the entirety of Beck’s operations will be known as The Blaze, like his current online publication, with the focus more on a variety of media. According to an exclusive from CNN Senior Digital Producer (and former Mediaiter) Steve Krakauer, Beck had been planning a change in name and organization for some time, but decided to speed up the process as, logistically, The Blaze took up more of the time and space of the...

    Glenn Beck and Premiere Networks finalized a long-term contract extension on Monday, linking one of the nation's most popular radio programs with a syndication giant. The new deal between Beck's Mercury Radio Arts and Premiere, a subsidiary of Clear Channel, ensures Premiere will syndicate "The Glenn Beck Program" for five more years. Reports value the contract at $100 million - double his prior deal. It covers not just "The Glenn Beck Program," but Beck's assorted digital businesses as well. Beck left Fox News last year and carried his devoted cadre of fans to the internet, launching GBTV, an online streaming...

    Glenn Beck once said that leaving Fox News Channel, as he did in 2011, would earn him $40 million by allowing him to concentrate on his own web-based subscriber operation, GBTV. Now The New York Times reports he has signed a $100 million contract for his radio shows to appear on Clear Channel Communications stations across the country. The move puts the pressure on Rush Limbaugh, whose advertisers abandoned him earlier this year after he called a college student a "slut" because she supported contraception coverage in healthcare plans. The Times said: Now carried by more than 400 stations, the...

    While it may sound like a contradiction in terms by American standards, it makes sense that a true liberal would likely rail against oppression in the name of religion — even if that self-proclaimed liberal is a Muslim, and the religion he is fighting is Islam. Yet for some reason, the majority of American leftists routinely criticize Judeo-Christianity while openly supporting radical Islamists (like the Muslim Brotherhood) that would as soon stone or behead the very minorities the left claims to stand for. To this end, leftwing political activist and broadcaster Tarek Fatah believes that condemning radical Islam should be...

    While Glenn Beck has been keeping a comparatively low profile since his meteoric rise on Fox News in 2009, but that doesn’t mean he’s doing all that badly– in fact, he’s doing better than ever before in terms of income– and better than any other political celebrity. Forbes‘ Power 100 reveals today that, while in overall ranking including influence in the media, Beck is in 23rd place, he outshines Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump and Alec Baldwin in the income department.

    On radio today Glenn played the audio of Obama contradicting himself on issue after issue. You’ve heard many of these stories before, but when you hear the audio back to back to back it’s really quite stunning. We all know politicians generally lie or mislead on issues, but Obama’s trail of lies is the stuff of legends. And many are about his own family experience. Watch this can’t miss segment & share it.

    *snip* With this in mind, Glenn Beck dedicated his Thursday evening broadcast to reviewing the staggering array of inconsistencies, embellishments and “manufactured lies” perpetuated by the president over the course of his political career. “His life is complete fiction,” Beck said. Let’s review the non-fiction version before we go any further: (video appears) In Part II of this report, we will briefly profile some of the president’s more questionable deeds, but in order to provide proper context, consider the following cast of characters who helped to shape Obama’s life and mindset.

    Thursday evening’s episode of the Glenn Beck Program will likely go down in the history books as one of the very few (if not only) recorded instances of another human being exposing President Obama’s myriad personal and professional inconsistencies in such a detailed and profound way. In fact, viewers might even consider burning themselves a DVD copy to serve as a record of what historians will one day prove. On Friday, The Blaze will provide more details on the president’s past deeds and associations, along with an additional clip from Beck‘s Thursday’s broadcast. Until then, ask yourself the following question:...

  • Bachmann Calls ‘Rumors of War III’ Documentary Frighteningly Accurate, ‘Absolutely Profound’

    Congresswoman Michele Bachmann joined Glenn Beck on Thursday to share her impressions of GBTV’s groundbreaking documentary, “Rumors of War III,” which exposes how the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating the upper echelons of America’s government. Bachmann, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, confirmed that “every single word was accurate” and “absolutely profound.” “It was spellbinding.” (Related: Want to Know Just how Close the Muslim Brotherhood Is to the Obama Admin?)
