Republicans Run From Cliven Bundy After Slavery Statements

By: Friday April 25, 2014 11:40 am

It was not so long ago that Cliven Bundy was a conservative hero for organizing an armed posse to defend his right to not pay federal grazing fees, but now it seems everyone in the Republican Party and mainstream conservative movement is running the other way.

Glenn Beck Planning Intentional Living Community

By: Monday January 14, 2013 5:47 am

Glenn Beck has a dream, not surprisingly it involves a theme-park. Galt railed against the collectivist system and believed that only through freedom could people tap into their divine potential to become creators of their own: leaders, businessmen, artists, and so on. The community that was created in this spirit was called “Galt’s Gultch,” and [...]

FreedomWorks Document Leak Reveals Reliance On Rich Donors

By: Monday January 7, 2013 6:05 am

Remember when the Tea Party was supposed to be a grass roots organization, unaffiliated with either party, just a group of folks who were fed up with corruption in Washington?

The Administration’s Muzzling of the FDA

By: Tuesday April 3, 2012 8:22 am

Gardiner Harris paints a very one-sided picture of an FDA desiring to use its regulatory power and a White House dedicated to constraining them. When you look at the results, however, either some FDA officials are trying to tell their side of the story, or the article is dead-on about the White House’s love affair [...]

Kochtopus the Gathering: Secret Corporate Billionaire Meetings to Set Course of a Nation

By: Wednesday October 20, 2010 9:12 am

I don’t suppose it’s a surprise that super-rich financiers and business tycoons periodically meet to determine how to best shape the world to their ends. Actually, we had that for about a minute on the liberal side, with the Democracy Alliance; it didn’t really hold up. This Kochtopus gathering seems much more robust; and the [...]

The Extremely Odd Massa/Beck Interview

By: Tuesday March 9, 2010 3:06 pm

Blogs everywhere went dark for the past hour, tuning in to Glenn Beck’s interview with former Congressman Eric Massa. And nobody learned much of anything, beyond the value of purchasing gold. In fact, Massa apparently presented himself almost totally differently than he did to get Beck to book him on the show. Frequently looking confused [...]

Hoyer’s Office Denies Massa Allegation; Massa Going On Beck For Full Hour Tomorrow

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s office dismissed the allegation by soon-to-be-former Rep. Eric Massa that he lied about the sexual harrassment charge and the referral to the House Ethics Committee, calling it completely false.

Watch Glenn Beck Claim A Scalp For Dunn Stepping Down From An Interim Postition

By: Tuesday November 10, 2009 9:31 am

A few weeks ago, Glenn Beck decided to make a big show over White House communications director Anita Dunn, who had been leading the charge in the Administration against Fox News, making a comment about Mao tse-tung being one of her favorite political philosophers.
