    Glenn Beck’s struggling media project the Blaze will be conducting mass layoffs in a bid to “keep pace with the massive changes” in the media industry. “Today, we said goodbye to just over 20 percent of the combined workforce of Mercury Radio Arts and the Blaze,” Beck said in a statement Thursday regarding his television and internet operation. “We are losing a lot of talented and committed colleagues, who are some of the best human beings I know  —  some have been friends of mine for 30 years.”

    The employees of Glenn Becks Mercury Radio Arts and The Blaze, the privately-held companies that comprise his once thriving but now crumbling conservative media empire, suspected something bad was going to happen Thursday morning when they arrived for work at the suburban Dallas, Texas, production complex and noticed the extra compliment of security guards. By the time Beck himself spoke to his dwindling army of underlings as one of his personal bodyguards from Gavin de Beckers celebrity protection service stood watch, nearly 60 of their coworkers had been abruptly fireda body count that amounted to almost 30 percent of the...
  • CONFUSION: Maxine Waters claims Putin continuing to advance into Korea

    Maxine Waters is continuing to bang the drums of impeachment, even though she has yet to accuse President Trump of breaking the law. But her statement today on the topic may be the most embarrassingly ridiculous yet.(snip) Waters continued, And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea.
  • No, Ted Cruz Doesn’t Want Federal Regulation of Home Schooling

    Contrary to what some bloggers (many of whom support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign) and the Internet rumor mill have been saying, Sen. Ted Cruz does not support federal regulation of home schooling.The source of the myth is Cruz’s co-sponsorship of S.306, a bill introduced during this session of Congress by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Some form of the bill has been introduced since 2000, but the measure has never been controversial until presidential campaign politics intervened. What the measure does is expand who can use Coverdell education savings accounts by clarifying that for the purpose of Coverdell expenses only, the...
  • The Tech-Nuclear Option, Part II: Starve ISIS of Its Oxygen

    12/16/2015 10:48:05 AM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | December 16, 2015 | Bryan Crabtree
    My original article, outlining how to defeat ISIS through an online assault, was met with a chorus of laughter. ( ) I suggested that in order to defeat ISIS we must first shut them down online. In essence, this would starve them of their oxygen. Donald Trump has also suggested that we need to "shut down the Internet." That too has been met with a great deal of ridicule and laughter. But what does that mean? Just this week, we've learned that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a rule that restricts its agents from reviewing social media...

    I know. I know. "Trump is flawed" the critics say. "He is a clown." "He is a buffoon." "He's divorced...twice." "He has business bankruptcies." Yes all true. And Reagan was a failed B-movie actor who played second fiddle to a chimp. Heck, Reagan had a failed Vegas lounge act that closed in a week. Reagan was rejected by United Artists executives to PLAY the part of a president. Two years later he was Governor of California. Then he went onto become the man polls show is regarded as our greatest modern president. Could Donald Trump be "Reagan- Part Duex?" (just...
  • Why do girls have a right to genital integrity, but not boys?

    The mother of a four-year-old son, Heather Hironimus, tearfully signed an order allowing for the circumcision of her boy, so that she could be released from prison. The event has stirred a national debate about the necessity of circumcision, and the question of whether all children should be allowed the right to bodily integrity. Hironimus was imprisoned after she fled with her son, attempting to avoid the fulfillment of an agreement with the boys father that would see him circumcised. Shes now taken center stage on the issue, with anti-circumcision activists rallying to her cause, raising $50,000 in legal bills...
  • The History Rhymes Enough to Justify Taking Comparisons to 1936-1938 Seriously

    The Streetwise Professor ^ | March 7, 2014 | The Professor
    Historical analogies to current events can be illuminating, but dangerous. Even if strong similarities exist, difference do too, and therefore caution is required when using them. This is especially true with analogies to Naziism and Hitler. Argudendo ad Hitlerum is fraught with peril, and is used far too cavalierly. Hillary found out about the perils when she compared Putins incursion into Ukraine-and yes, Crimea is Ukraine-to Germanys actions in 1936-1938: the occupation of the Rhineland, the Anschluss, the taking of the Sudetenland, and the eventual seizure of the rest of Czechoslovakia. Her remarks unleashed a storm of criticism. Mark this...

    WASHINGTON Never much known for restraint, Joseph R. Biden Jr. did not hold back during a presidential primary debate in 2007 when a voter asking about gun rights in a recorded video displayed a fearsome-looking semiautomatic rifle and declared, This is my baby. Mr. Biden, then a Delaware senator in a dark-horse bid for the White House, shook his head. I tell you what, if thats his baby, he needs help, he said. I think he just made an admission against self-interest. I dont know if hes mentally qualified to own that gun. **SNIP** Mr. Biden, he added, has...

    "God wants Ron Paul to be President. Paul is the only Christian still running who beat Obama in polls, but will Christians and pastors obey God?" says Pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries. "We must obey God and vote for Christians. Noah Webster used Exodus 18:21 for American voting. John Jay said "select and prefer Christians for [our] leaders" (Mark 12:30, Psalm 1, Psalm 33:12). "Comparing Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, we see Paul will cut the deficit $1 trillion in year one, but Obama and Romney would increase the deficit. Americans will have more jobs...

    Joe Biden cant get anyone to name a school after himBy Holly Bailey Wed Mar 2, 4:42 pm ET President Obama already has seven schools around the country named after him, so you'd think Vice President Joe Biden wouldn't have a problem getting his name plastered on just one school in his home state of Delaware. But, as ABC News' Karen Travers reports, residents in Delaware's Brandywine School District on Tuesday voted against a bid to name a newly-build elementary school after the Veep, who represented the state for 36 years in the Senate. The move came after an anonymous...

    Saying he was inspired by the really cool recent James Bond movie, presidential candidate, Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), has put out a call for volunteers to spy on his rivals for the Democratic nomination. Kucinichs request went via e-mail to the six people who have signed-on to help in his campaign, thus far. Kucinichs national outreach coordinator, Evan Moody said the overtly public nature of the appeal was intentional. I know that spying is normally a covert activity, but we have too few supporters to get much actual coverage, Moody explained. We figured wed have a bigger impact if we...

    CARACAS, Venezuela -- A U.S. congresswoman called on the Bush administration Wednesday to reconsider its ban on selling parts for U.S.-made F-16 fighter jets to Venezuela, urging improved ties between the two nations. U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, told reporters that she was making the first U.S. congressional visit to Venezuela since President Hugo Chavez's December re-election with the message: "I want an immediate repairing of the relations between the United States and Venezuela." Jackson Lee described Venezuela as a friendly nation that the U.S. should cooperate with and said that the F-16 jets, which are built...

John Murtha on Tuesday urged that a "responsible phased" withdrawal of U.S. troops begin from within Saddam Hussein's palaces, and said the United States should denounce any aspirations to build permanent military bases in the country. "Historically, whether it was India, Algeria or Afghanistan, foreign occupations do not work and, in fact, incite civil unrest," said Murtha, D-Pa., in testimony prepared before delivery before the Senate Foreign Relations committee. "Our military remains the greatest military in the world, but there are limits to its ability to...

    Sources close to Mr. Gingrich said that, after having kept silent for more than a year, he has become openly critical of the administration, portraying the president as a weak man akin to Gerald Ford. The former House speaker has warned conservatives not to expect anything from the White House over the remaining two years and instead focus on building a base for leadership for 2008. "Newt bit his tongue for months and now feels he has to tell the truth: the White House does not have the power to promote any agenda," a source close to Mr. Gingrich said....
