Debt Ceiling To Be Raised Again?

The Obama administration will reportedly ask Congress later this week to raise the nation’s debt ceiling by $1.2 trillion according to a Treasury Department official. The request is the third of three authorized by the debt ceiling agreement reached last August. The request is expected to come on December 30, the day the debt is […]

The Super Committee Smoke Screen: A Raging Success As Planned

I keep hearing that Congress’s Super Committee has failed due to the fact they could not agree on the “spending cuts” and “revenue enhancements” they were “supposed” to make. The sinister truth of this unconstitutional committee is that the perceived failure is actually a successful conclusion. You see, the whole idea at the outset was […]

THERE ARE NO CUTS! – The Fallacy of Baseline Budgeting

From thehill.com I almost have to laugh at the old car commercials with the loud salesmen and the blinking graphics, “Come in today and save $5,000!!”  You have to know that this type of advertising works because it is still being used.  Ergo, there must still be idiots out there that think they are really […]

FAILED: Balanced Budget Amendment Does Not Pass House Vote

Just days after the national debt hit $15 trillion, in what Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, describes as the “last line of defense against Congress’ unending desire to overspend and overtax”, the proposed balanced budget amendment failed to pass the vote in the House today. The Conservative Congress members have spent months seeking support for […]

Blame It On Pandora

In class a couple weeks ago, we read the myth of Pandora to the students because they showed the holy grail of teaching (interest), in the subject.  As it was being read I was struck by many questions. Since suffering existed even when it was imprisoned in Pandora’s box, did people feel it still? Was […]

A New Media Slant Detector

I formerly believed that reporters don’t tell the public what to think. Instead, they tell the public what to think about — as if that made claiming “objectivity” while misusing your influence an acceptable practice. Experience disabused me of that erroneous notion. For as Martha Bayles observes, “What [the media] does is condition us, gradually […]

What Would Reagan Do?

Many have said that what we need now, more than ever, is a Ronald Reagan-esque President in the White House. What would Reagan do to deal with the Debt Ceiling?

Allen West Talks With CDNews on Debt, the Economy and Foreign Policy

Tuesday afternoon, I had the opportunity to spend twenty minutes with Congressman Allen West (R FL-22) and ask him about the outcome of the debt-limit negotiations, the current state of the economy and U.S. foreign policy. Once the pleasantries were exchanged, we got right to the questions. Rich: Moody’s cut the U.S. economic outlook for 2011 […]

Recipe For Disaster

Washington may call the recent “debt deal” necessary, but the “ingredients” that went into making the “deal” sometimes seem a bit “seedy”. A more appropriate name might be a recipe for disaster!

Rich Man, Poor Man

Despite what the liberal media and the Democrat party tell you, the poor are getting richer. In fact, America’s poor are so rich, we should be having parades to celebrate how wealthy the poor are in our country. Bill Whittle lays out the facts. Rich Mitchell is the Sr. Managing Editor of Conservative Daily News. […]

Spinning the Downgrade

On Friday, S&P downgraded the U.S. credit rating to AA+ from AAA. The downgrade report complained that the debt ceiling deal did not do enough to stem the tide of future deficits and debt. While the report blamed no political parties, politicians, groups, or approaches as the reason for the shortfall, Democrats have been falling […]

Money Madness

Here’s a message from the people who are actually going to have to pay the $14 trillion… and growing… national debt. Rich Mitchell is the Sr. Managing Editor of Conservative Daily News.

Obama’s Debt Compromise Costs U.S. AAA Credit Rating for First Time in History

The Administration and members of Congress had held the specter of a credit rating downgrade over the heads of Americans. If a debt deal is not reached, the nation’s good credit would be damaged said several government leaders. On Friday, Standard and Poor’s (S&P) downgraded the United States’ rating from AAA to AA-plus on concerns […]
