Glenn Beck Smears Ron Paul With Half-Truths About Paul's Earmarks.
11/30/2011 | PhilipFreneau

Glenn Beck Smears Ron Paul With Half-Truths About Paul's Earmarks.

Today on his radio show Glenn Beck and his staff declared that Ron Paul is the "earmark king", and labeled Paul a hypocrit. Beck correctly stated that Paul adds many earmarks to spending bills, and then votes against the spending bills. What Beck left out (either by deceit or by ignorance) is that earmarks do not increase the size of a budget. The money allocated for a budget is set by the Appropriations Committee prior to any allocation or earmark. All money not allocated or earmarked is not deleted from the budget, but rather is turned over the the executive branch to spend as it sees fit.

According to Wikipedia [re. Earmark], "Scott Frisch and Sean Kelly point out that directing money to particular purposes is a core constitutional function of Congress. If Congress does not make a specific allocation, the task falls to the executive branch; there is no guarantee that the allocation made by executive agencies will be superior to Congress's. Presidents and executive officials can use the allocation of spending to reward friends and punish enemies." They also warned the "Tea Party's Anti-Earmark Crusade Gives More Power to President Obama".

Those are important points. Unallocated money has no transparency, and therefore can be used by the President to reward friends and punish enemies, without public scrutiny. Therefore, by earmarking as much as he can, Ron Paul is increasing the transparency of government spending. Until the Congress passes a law that requires all unallocated money to be deleted from the budget and returned to the Treasury, Congressman Paul is doing all he can do to increase the transparency of federal expenditures.

Glenn Beck is constantly preaching to us about the importance of (honorable) character. Maybe Beck should practice what he preaches.

I know, lets vote to pass a budget where $1.5 trillion is appropriated for green cheese on the moon's back-side.

Yep! That's what I was thinkin' too: great idea!

“What is your definition of a liar?”

An individual that tells a falsehood, like “Ron Paul is NOT antisemite piece of garbage.” or “Ron Paul is a Conservtive.”

That would be my definition of what a liar is.

Well, RuPaul claims to be an American, when in actuality he’s a sock puppet for Islamo-Nazi Iran. RuPaul claims to be a Conservative while trying to legalize drugs and prostitution, repealing DADT, cheering on gay marriage, supporting OWS, accepting an endorsement from Code Pinko, and taking tax money that was STOLEN from me and handing it to his cronies in Galveston. If that’s your idea of Conservatism, I can’t help you. You’re posting on the wrong site.

See, here’s the thing you don’t seem to understand. This is a CONSERVATIVE website. RuPaul is not a Conservative. He’s a liberaltarian. He’s as contemptible as the Authoritarian Left, therefore he’ll be treated as such by the majority of the posters here.

“I think you are a leftist mole.”

LOL! Humor will get you nowhere with me, Paulbot.

You want specifics ? RuPaul doesn’t believe in the death penalty, is unwilling to support a Constitutional amendment to defend traditional marriage from the Heathen Left, he defends Islamo-Nazi Iran, and blames the US for 9/11.

**********************************

“I don’t think it’s very good sign for civilization to still be invoking the death penalty. . . .

If you believe in the death penalty, what I really object to is the doctors participating in torture, and doctors who are there to make it smooth and sweet.

‘Oh, let’s put him to sleep.’ If it’s a death penalty, do it on Times Square, see ‘em get their head chopped off and see how all the people, see how much they like it, make ‘em look at it. I think it’s uncivilized.”

http://www.concordmonitor.com/article/274807/the-death-penalty-i-think-its-uncivilized?SESSfdf0ee00c1e0052deac90b8b68f883a7=google&page=full

***********************************

“Mr. Speaker, while I oppose federal efforts to redefine marriage as something other than a union between one man and one woman, I do not believe a constitutional amendment is either a necessary or proper way to defend marriage.”

http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul207.html

***********************************

“I would like to express my concerns over the Iran Threat Reduction Act of 2011 and my opposition to it being brought to the Floor for a vote. Let us be clear on one critical matter: the sanctions against Iran mandated by this legislation are definite steps toward a US attack on Iran. They will also, if actually applied, severely disrupt global trade and undermine the US economy, thereby harming our national security.

I am surprised and disturbed that the committee viewed this aggressive legislation to be so bipartisan and uncontroversial that a recorded vote was not even called.

Some may argue that we are pursuing sanctions so as to avoid war with Iran, but recent history teaches us otherwise. For how many years were sanctions placed on Iraq while we were told they were necessary to avoid war? Thousands of innocent Iraqis suffered and died under US sanctions and still the US invaded, further destroying the country. Are we safer after spending a trillion dollars or more to destroy Iraq and then rebuild it?

These new sanctions against Iran increasingly target other countries that seek to trade with Iran. The legislation will severely punish foreign companies or foreign subsidiaries of US companies if they do not submit to the US trade embargo on Iran. Some 15 years after the Iran Sanctions Act of 1996 failed to bring Iran to its knees, it is now to be US foreign policy to threaten foreign countries and companies. “

http://lewrockwell.com/paul/paul777.html

***********************************

“Ten years ago, shocking and horrific acts of terrorism were carried out on U.S. soil, taking nearly 3,000 innocent American lives. Without a doubt this action demanded retaliation and retribution. However, much has been done in the name of protecting the American people from terrorists that has reduced our prosperity and liberty and even made us less safe.

This is ironic and sad considering that the oft-repeated line concerning the reasoning behind the attacks is that they hate us for who we are – a free prosperous people – that we must not under any circumstances allow the terrorists to win. Though it is hard for many to believe, honest studies show that the real motivation behind the 9/11 attacks, and the vast majority of other instances of suicide terrorism, is not that our enemies are bothered by our way of life, neither is it our religion or our wealth – rather it is primarily occupation. If you were to imagine for a moment how you would feel if another country forcibly occupied the United States, had military bases and armed soldiers present in our hometown, you might begin to understand why foreign occupation upsets people so much.”

You’re out of your mind if you think any of that drek is American, let alone Conservative.

What would you like to debate ? That Rupaul voted to repeal DADT ? That his svengali Screwy Lewy Rockwell is not only Cindy Sheehan’s love slave, but an anarchist ? Perhaps you’d like to discuss RuPaul’s admiration of OWS, you know the same vermin that endorsed by Chairman Obama, the American Nazi Party, and the Communist Party USA ? Or, we could just get crazy and discuss the 9/11 Truthers and Neo-Nazis who make up the bulk of his supporters.

Where would you like to start ? I’m all ears.

I’ve also noticed you didn’t respond to my previous post where I illustrated that RuPaul has declined to support the amendment to defend marriage from the leftists, blamed the US for 9/11, and defends Islamo-Nazi Iran.

Wow...you really are crazy. You get on here in a post saying Beck is lying about your guy...they prove he's not...then you turn the argument around 180 degrees...so that the accusation becomes something noble?

Paul DOES add numerous earmarks to Bills and then votes against those bills. He mostly loads his earmarks into bills that are going to pass.

Now...the debate on the merits of earmarks as see by Ron Paul (who thinks earmarks are OK) is a separate debate. The thread should have really been about "IS HE DOING IT?" Is the ACCUSATION true? The answer is "YES!"

However, once you figured that out, you masterfully changed the subject...and a bunch of FREEPERS fell for it. Your thesis statement was that Glenn Beck was a liar. Well...turns out he's not...and you are glad for it.

And that is crazy.

BTW...I live in Paul's district. My wife was delivered by Dr. Ron Paul and we know the Paul family personally. I like Rob Paul personally...but he's wrong on many issues...this being one.
