Politics in the News

Whether you are a libertarian, conservative, NRA member or simply a citizen concerned with today's political climate, you will find news items of interest and relevance on Reliable Answers "Politics in the News."

What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

Earlier this evening my husband, Chris Loesch, had his Twitter account suspended.

There have been stories going around of conservatives getting suspended from Twitter over innocuous things while accounts like @KillZimmerman (an account which threatened to kill George Zimmerman) and other such accounts were left active for weeks. After a user remarked about me being raped and murdered, Chris and others defended me.

NBC pays billions of dollars to give us coverage about the Olympics instead of actually showing, you know, the Olympics. #nbcfail

NBC has united the world...in scorn, contempt, and mockery of its gaffe-plagued, stone-age Olympics coverage. Cutting the tribute to the 7/7 London Islamic terror victims from the network's opening ceremonies coverage was just the tip of the iceberg. Yesterday, the #NBCFail hashtag erupted worldwide and showed no signs of let-up. Ridiculous tape delays, news/programming spoilers, arrogant tweets from former NPR executive-turned-NBC chief digital officer Vivian Schiller, geographic errors, and streaming woes have earned the peacock network global social media mockery.

How about spending a billion dollars on batteries? After all, they are advanced. That's a proposal in the proposed $850 billion economic stimulus plan being considered in Congress.

...and one of the reasons for the establishment of a new website, ReadTheStimulus.org, which is trying to collect volunteers to analyze the dollars and cents written into the 300-plus-page plan. The organization says the website was set up to help citizens read and understand the 2009 bill.

An effort to stop more than a billion dollars of taxpayer money from being redistributed to "anonymous claimants" failed in the House this week, but it may have set the stage for a congressional investigation.

Rep. Steve King's amendment to block $1.15 billion allocated for the "fraud-plagued" Pigford II discrimination settlement with black farmers failed on a vote of 155-262 on Friday. All 155 votes in favor of blocking the money came from Republicans. And 78 Republicans - including Reps. Darrell Issa (Calif.) and Alan West (Fla.) -- joined Democrats in killing the amendment.

A Virginia man must pay $1.5 million in damages to an adult entertainment company for illegally sharing 10 of its movies on the Internet, a court has ruled.

Kywan Fisher, of Hampton, has been ordered to pay the damages to Flava Works for sharing 10 of its movies on the BitTorrent site, TorrentFreak reported Friday. Flava Works sued Fisher and several others in 2011 in a case that differed from so-called John Doe lawsuits because Flava Works had detailed information on the defendants who had paid accounts on the company's movie portal.

An Obama administration green jobs grant program that spent $11 billion lacks a verifiable job-counting system and likely created only a fraction of the jobs it claims, according to a staff report by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

While Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the grants "created tens of thousands of jobs," the government's own National Renewal Energy Laboratory estimates it created 910 direct jobs. The House report criticized even those numbers, saying: "The job creation numbers that exist for Section 1603 are based on models, not actual data from completed projects. Neither Treasury nor DOE have turned over actual jobs data on the Section 1603 grants program to the committee."

Over the last 286 days the US national debt has rose from $15 trillion to $16 trillion at the record rate of $3.5 billion per day.

Most Americans might not have been paying and certainly aren't paying but they will one European style austerity measures are forced into place alongside a massive tax bill to pay the debt collector. Right now that debt has just passed the massive milestone of $16 trillion and only continues to skyrocket at astronomical rates as the economic prosperity of our future and are children's future is being sacrificed to fund illegal foreign wars, to plant seeds that assure more future wars in places such as Syria and Iran, and to implement a massive totalitarian domestic surveillance state to protect those responsible for said bills from the blowback being created as a result said imperialistic foreign policy.

Posting its results late this afternoon at Recovery.gov, the White House claimed 640,329 jobs have been created or saved because of the $159 billion in stimulus funds allocated as of Sept. 30.

The White House argues that the actual job number is actually closer to 1 million jobs when one factors in stimulus jobs added in October. So let's see. Assuming their number is right -- 160 billion divided by 1 million. Does that mean the stimulus costs taxpayers $160,000 per job?
