    While we regular, cash-strapped taxpayers concerned about the well-being of our country stood on the overpasses Saturday protesting the total breakdown of our borders, where were a few of our stalwart conservative spokespeople and politicians? Were they holding anti-illegal immigration signs with ‘we the people’ on the National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform Amnesty and Border Surge? No. Senator Ted Cruz, Rep Louie Gohmert, Glenn Beck, and Dana Loesch, among others, were in McAllen, Texas meeting with Rio Grande Catholic Charities Director Sr. Norma Pimentel just weeks after her very public visit with Nancy Pelosi. Not to be outdone...

    On his Friday radio show, Glenn Beck suggested those who do not want to pass out soccer balls and teddy bears to illegal immigrant children at detention centers with him are "pusses." He also said Americans should not "focus" on the gangsters, killers, and rapists who are coming across the border with the illegal immigrant children two days after Breitbart Texas reported that an illegal immigrant whom the federal government released in June with a "notice to appear" was arrested for murder. While discussing his plans to go to McAllen, Texas on Saturday with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep....

Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman for the senator, told TheBlaze in an email: “Tens of thousands of children are being smuggled into the United States by dangerous drug cartels and transnational gangs – it is heartless to allow that to continue.” “But while we work to reverse the policies that have caused this tragedy, it is important we recognize the human element of this crisis, and Sen....

    Liberals just aren't very liberal these days. The word “liberal” comes from the Latin word meaning freedom, and in the 19th century liberals in this country and abroad stood for free speech, free exercise of religion, free markets, free trade -- for minimal state interference in people's lives. In the 20th century New Dealers revised this definition, by arguing that people had a right not only to free speech and freedom of religion, but also, as Franklin Roosevelt said in his 1941 Four Freedoms speech, freedom from fear and from want. Freedom from want meant, for Roosevelt, government provision of...

Many grassroots righties support impeachment but there’s virtually no one in the political class, including tea-party heroes like Cruz, willing to pursue it. In the case of Beck’s charity drive for kids from Central America who’ve been sent north across the border, some (maybe not quite “many”) grassroots righties oppose it on grounds that it’s adding an incentive for more illegals to come....

    During a rant on his radio show Tuesday, Glenn Beck told his audience that he prayed to God that Russian President Vladimir Putin would die. It sounds harsh, but Beck seems to believe that what Putin is doing in Russia essentially amounts to starting World War III. As part of his outburst, Beck also mentioned that the unrest in Russia would soon spread to Europe. “I’ve never prayed for the Lord to take anybody before, but I have started praying with my family last night that the Lord calls Mr. Putin home soon,” Beck said. One of the ways that...

    Glenn Beck was invited to see “Noah” by an executive vice president of Paramount Pictures over the weekend, who requested that the multimedia personality see the movie before taking a position on it with his audience. “I felt like kind of a dirtball, basing my review on something that I hadn’t seen, on someone else’s review,” Beck said on radio Monday. “That’s what people do to me. They don’t listen or watch, then they review. It was wrong of me to do.” Unfortunately — though Beck said everyone at Paramount was extremely gracious — he has only more words of...

    Usually I don’t talk about political or news figures, but I ran across this article and it really got my attention. Glenn Beck is a controversial media figure and many people either like him or hate him. But that is not the focus of this article. The question is, is he being poisoned by a person? No. Glenn has been dealing with neuropathy for awhile and has been to see lots of different medical specialists to get to the root of his issue. The doctors believed that he was being poisoned…by the food that he had been eating. He had...

    With some 99 perecent plus of the vote in, John Cornyn picked up 59 percent of it to avoid a runoff. Steve Stockman was second with 19 percent, Dwayne Stovall third at 11 percent. That's a hard result for me to take. With his cloture vote last month to increase the nation's debt ceiling (credit card limit) Cornyn moved the United States closer to its eventual financial ruin. Some felt the race was a bit rigged with Stockman running a crazy and ineffective challenge. I supported Stockman noting his willingness to not vote for John Boehner as Speaker along with...

    Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday that if the media focused on what the Obama administration said about Russia “over and over again” during the 2012 presidential election, the president’s poll numbers would plummet. “You want the president’s ratings to be [where they] should be, in the 20s?” Beck asked. “All you have to do is tell the truth. All you have to do is play the audio of how wrong this man is.” Beck continued: “The mainstream media just doesn’t care. As long as you win the moment, it doesn’t matter what you said in the past....

    A fiery Glenn Beck asserted Wednesday that the “fundamental transformation” of America has already occurred, and it is “time to forget the United States of America that you know.” “If this is what is [I am] required to pledge allegiance to, I am no longer a citizen of this country,” Beck said. “If I am required to pledge allegiance to that, I proudly declare now for my grandchildren’s ears, I am not a part of [it].” Beck was referring to then-candidate Barack Obama’s pledge that “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America” with his...

    Feb. 14, 2014 (MonicaKelsey) - When someone says, "I am pro-life except in the case of rape or incest," they are using an oxymoron to describe themselves. This is in essence describing themselves as pro-choice and shows they have a lack of understanding of what being pro-life is truly about. Glenn Beck, who my husband listens to almost daily, is a good example of someone who is highly intelligent, but lacks the understanding of what it means to be pro-life with no exceptions. Let me explain. First of all, let me tell you about who I am. I am a...

    On Saturday, Glenn Beck conducted an interview with Rand Paul for the Blaze. When Beck asked the Kentucky senator why he endorsed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who's facing a tough reelection fight this year, Paul couldn't come up with much of an answer. "Can we start with the hardest question that I have for you," Beck says in the video first published by Talking Points Memo. "Why are you endorsing Mitch McConnell?" After a few moments of silence, Paul answered, "Um, I'm here in Texas today to endorse Don Huffines!" Huffines is a conservative running for the Texas Senate...
