    In an effort to downplay Romney's support at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, MSNBC used an edited video to make it appear as though the crowd was screaming "Ryan, Ryan," Joel B. Pollack reported at on Friday. But a closer look at the actual unedited footage from CSPAN tells a much different story. MSNBC first aired the video on Wednesday, "prompting an embarrassed Joe Scarborough to mutter 'Oh, sweet Jesus' and a purse-lipped Mika Brzezinski to ask 'What’s wrong with those people,'” The Blaze reported on Thursday. Video: MSNBC caught doctoring clip from Romney/Ryan rally Beckett Adams wrote that...
  • Editorial: No-tax, low-tax states booming

    We wish it weren't so. But the evidence keeps coming in that other states, such as Texas and its Sun Belt neighbors, are doing something right in promoting business and jobs creation, and California is doing something terribly wrong. The U.S. Census Bureau just released estimates of the top 10 fastest-growing metropolitan areas, by population, from April 1, 2010, to July 1, 2011. Not one was in California. The fastest-growing was Kennewick-Pasco-Richland, Wash., which grew 4.3 percent during the 15-month period. It enjoys a diverse economy and Washington's lack of a state income tax. Second-fastest growing was Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos,...

  • Obama's Only Hope of Reelection is Forcing John Boehner to Cave

    07/11/2011 2:35:32 PM PDT · by Evil Slayer · 25 replies ^ | 7/11/11 | Rush Limbaugh
    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: John Boehner is Obama's lifeline to reelection. That's all Boehner is to Obama, nothing else. He not a golf buddy. He's nothing other than that. If he can get Boehner to ultimately cave, Obama's reelected. That's what he knows. Sorry, folks, it's the only way to look at this. When they go in that meeting room and Obama sees Boehner, he sees 2002. He sees, "If I can force this guy to cave, I don't care what the House vote is. I don't care if I lose the vote. If I can get this guy to cave...

    General Electric paid no American taxes in 2010, the New York Times reports: The company reported worldwide profits of $14.2 billion, and said $5.1 billion of the total came from its operations in the United States. Its American tax bill? None. In fact, G.E. claimed a tax benefit of $3.2 billion. That may be hard to fathom for the millions of American business owners and households now preparing their own returns, but low taxes are nothing new for G.E. The company has been cutting the percentage of its American profits paid to the Internal Revenue Service for years, resulting in...

    SacBee: Capitol Alert ^ | 2/2/9 | Shane Goldmacher
    In an effort to ramp up pressure on Republican lawmakers who might agree to a compromise budget deal, a top GOP official has submitted a resolution for the party's convention later this month to formally censure any Republican who votes for new or higher taxes. "If the Republican party loses the ability to say that we're the party against higher taxes than we've been dealt a grievous blow," said Jon Fleischman, the author of the resolution and a Southern California vice chairman in the California Republican Party. Fleischman, who publishes the conservative FlashReport Web site, said the resolution is meant...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, aided by an extraordinary outpouring of Internet support Monday, hauled in more than $3.5 million in 20 hours. Paul, the Texas congressman with a Libertarian tilt and an out-of-Iraq pitch, entered heady fundraising territory with a surge of Web-based giving tied to the commemoration of Guy Fawkes Day. Fawkes was a British mercenary who failed in his attempt to kill King James I on Nov. 5, 1605. He also was the model for the protagonist in the movie "V for Vendetta." Paul backers motivated donors on the Internet with mashed-up clips of...

    Nonfilers cite war to justify defiance Those who don't pay taxes risk financial ruin, IRS official says Saturday, April 14, 2007 3:43 AM By Jim Phillips FOR THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH With Tax Tuesday close at hand, Rod Nippert still hasn't filled out his 2006 return. He's not scrambling to get it done, either. This year, the 57-year-old Athens County resident is sending the IRS the same amount he's paid every year since 1973: zero. But Nippert, who refuses to pay federal income taxes to protest U.S. wars, says his accounting method is not for everyone. "Most people who want to...

    A spokesman for Schwarzenegger said there would be no comment on the details of the budget until today. The proposed cuts come as the governor attempts to close what he says is a $15-billion deficit for the fiscal year that begins in July. The budget would include no new taxes. But the governor will propose that some of the deficit be erased by obtaining new revenues from Indian gambling and by significantly raising the fees for graduate and community college students. Schwarzenegger's proposal would involve taking property tax money from local governments and using it to pay some of the...

    SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday said his opposition to tax increases is based on the public's distaste for them, and if polls showed voters had changed their minds about taxes, he might consider raising them. For now, however, taxes are off the table. Schwarzenegger remains committed to a series of spending cuts along with a constitutional limit on future spending growth as well as a $15 billion bond package he hopes to put before voters in March. He has begun a weeklong campaign to drum up support for his bond and spending-cap measures, visiting Democratic districts and urging...

    Since we are not allowed to post any articles from, ( I suppose for good reason), I thought I would post the gist of this article for your consumption--especially in light of California's and other states' ficsal problems' In the article (http//, Walter Burien writes that local governments have two sets of books. The second set is know as CAFR. These assets number in the trillions. For California it numbered 3 trillion as of 1999. Thus the question is begged, if states, counties, etc have these "hidden" monies from investments, etc, why are we being soaked for additional taxes,...
