WHAT MAY BE GOING ON BEHIND THE SCENES, TRYING TO LOCK OUT WORLD WAR II VETERANS FROM MEMORIAL.....
'They Are Building a Thugocracy' - We've Passed Major 'Signposts' Amid Government Shutdown Debate - The Blaze - Glenn Beck told his audience on Thursday that the news of the day — and a select group of stories in particular — needs to be examined in the context of “authoritarianism vs. libertarianism.” “This has been the battle since the beginning of time,” he said. “Everything you see is just a battle in this larger war.” Beck said he believes his job is to point out the “signposts” of what’s happening, and said we passed a “major” one in the last couple of days. “I’ve told you before, I think we went from ‘nudge’ to ‘shove’ when we saw that dad in Baltimore forcefully dragged out of a school town hall when he just asked a simple question about…Common Core,” Beck remarked. “From nudge to shove is hugely important, because that’s what happens in every single collectivist society.” Beck said the steps are “nudge, shove, and shoot,” and that if there is real trouble — particularly real economic trouble — you can go from shove to shoot “overnight.” The most recent example of “shove,” Beck said, is the government strong-arming elderly World War II veterans in attempting to prevent them from visiting their memorial in Washington, D.C. (In case you haven’t seen, they moved the barricades with a little help from Republican members of Congress and entered anyway.)“I believe we now have a government that does not care if they look benevolent or not,” Beck asserted. “They don’t care if their authoritarian actions are on full display for everyone to see — in fact, I think they want it this way.”And it goes beyond that, Beck said, pointing to a handful of other locations that are not paid for by the federal government that the government still tried to shut down as part of the “government shutdown” this week. “This is beyond not wise. You don’t do that unless you’re building a thugocracy,” Beck said. “You come in with your stormtroopers and you say ‘shut it down,’ and you have to. They don’t care if they bully vets, shut down parks that don’t need to be shut down — they are showing you they’re in control. Read more.......

(2) How Democrats Got Us to a Shutdown - Redstate - The press has been falling over itself to attack Republicans for the shutdown and claiming that they are the source of all the irresponsibility in the process. They have conveniently forgotten several important things about how much the Democrats have broken the budget process in the last couple of years and in this year in particular. I wrote back in January about how the Senate Democrats were dismantling the budget process. While the Senate did pass a budget resolution this year, in many ways the situation has gotten much, much worse. Read more........


(3) How Long do We have Before We See Hyperinflation? One Expert's Answer May Frighten You - The Blaze David Buckner, the founder and CEO of Bottom Line Training and Consulting, an adjunct professor at Columbia University, and the author of “Permission to Think,” explained on the Glenn Beck Program Wednesday why America hasn’t yet seen hyperinflation — but why it could be just around the corner. Buckner said that in discussing hyperinflation, people often refer to the Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe, and Bolivia, but say “it could never happen here” because a “certain kind of layering has to occur” that America hasn’t seen.  Read more......

Robert Hurt Speaks on House Floor, Urges Senate to Compromise on Solution to Fund Government - Congressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) delivered remarks today on the Floor of the House urging the Senate to compromise on a solution to fund the federal government. The following is the text of Congressman Hurt’s speech.  "Mr. Speaker, I am pleased that the House has acted once again to fund the critical operations of the federal government. Last night, we adopted legislation that would provide funding for the National Institutes of Health and for re-opening monuments like our World War II Memorial. "The NIH provides critical funding for work ranging from the treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury suffered by our soldiers to cancer therapies for our children. NIH is the largest source of federal research funding for the important work in these areas at the University of Virginia, located in the heart of Virginia's Fifth District. "This critical funding should not lapse because the Senate Majority Leader refuses to come to the conference table to work out a reasonable spending plan for the federal government. "This critical funding should not lapse because the Senate Majority Leader insists on protecting healthcare waivers for Washington special interests -- while leaving Virginia families in the cold. "This critical funding should not lapse because the Senate Majority Leader insists on protecting special healthcare subsidies for Members of Congress -- while leaving Virginia families to pay the price. "I urge the Senate to come to the conference table today. Let's get this done."

(5) Five Faith-Friendly Companies That Will Appeal to Shoppers with a Biblical Worldview - The Blaze - Are the faithful truly driven toward companies, businesses and products that align with their theological worldview? That’s the question that brand strategist Chris Stone, founder of the Stone Agency, set out to answer through his “Faith Driven Consumer” initiative, an innovative research project that gauges interest in values-motivated consumer behavior. Over the past five years, Stone has intensely studied American businesses that are faith friendly — and those that are not. Among the companies deemed viable for people of faith are Aeropostale, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Kohl’s and Belk. And those are only a few of the examples. Read more.......
