    SALT LAKE CITY — Republican Burgess Owens saw his lead increase to 1,780 votes over Democratic Rep. Ben McAdams Tuesday in Utah’s 4th Congressional District race as ballots continue to be tabulated a week after the largely by-mail election. The race remains too close to call, with Owens, a former NFL player, author and frequent Fox News guest, ahead of the first-term congressman, 47.6% to 47.1%, in the district made up of portions of Salt Lake, Utah, Sanpete and Juab counties. Most of the district’s voters live in Salt Lake County, which reported more than 19,000 additional votes Tuesday. McAdams...

    Owens promised to bring the values the tenets represent — education, faith, industry and family — to Washington, D.C., to counter a country that is more divided now than when he was growing up in the segregated South.

    Former NFL player Burgess Owens said socialism and Marxism are pushing an “anti-white” and “anti-American” agenda that’s hurting the black community. Burgess was discussing the NFL’s ratings boost as national anthem protests begin to fade and said America is fighting for its soul. ... “The biggest takeaway from the last two years — we are in the fight for the heart and soul of our nation,” Burgess said Friday on “Fox & Friends.” “We are fighting for our American, Judeo-Christian values and we’re fighting against a very evil force of socialism and Marxism that destroy everything they come close to....

  • Bill O’Reilly’s Accuser Was Previously Arrested For False Allegation Of A Crime

    Young Conservatives ^ | September 18 | Staff
    Newsmax has dropped a bombshell story about the credibility of the key accuser against former Fox host Bill O’Reilly. Had it not been for the allegations by Perquita Burgess, O’Reilly might not have been fired. But as it turns out, Burgess has an arrest for a false allegation in her past. Burgess did not complain to the network at the time and O’Reilly said the charges were false. Newsmax found two documents that called her credibility into question. The first was a police report concerning a fight with her boyfriend where she called them reporting he hit her in the...

    Coming forward publicly for the first time, Perquita Burgess, along with her attorney Lisa Bloom, appeared on “The View” Thursday to discuss the sexual harassment she claims Bill O’Reilly directed toward her. O’Reilly was let go from Fox News the day before, and co-host Whoopi Goldberg introduced Burgess as potentially “the final nail in the coffin of Bill O’Reilly’s career at Fox News.”

    Rubio Stares Down the Right Over 'Undocumented Democrats' National JournalBy Tim Alberta | National Journal – 5 hrs ago Marco Rubio was not amused. The senator from Florida had listened patiently as a panel of hand-picked conservatives, lined up across a long table at the front of the room, took turns speaking about the prospects of immigration reform. When discussion finally opened to the anxious, overflowing crowd of lawmakers at the Republican Study Committee's immigration summit, several were quick to critique their pro-reform colleagues – Rubio the headliner among them. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., argued they should be discussing a...

    Rep. Michael Burgess slammed Obamacare as “bad news from top to bottom,” but he called for adding $4 billion to the program to take care of the 65,000 people with pre-existing conditions that are currently being denied coverage they were promised. In an interview with Newsmax TV, the Texas Republican said the extra money was needed after the pre-existing coverage program, a center piece of Obamacare, blew through its $5 billion budget in January and closed its doors to new members. …

    Republican to revive lightbulb warBy Andrew Restuccia - 05/07/12 04:43 PM ET A House Republican is planning in the coming weeks to revive the GOP offensive against federal lightbulb efficiency standards. Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) will offer an amendment to Energy Department spending legislation that would block funding for implementation of the standards, the lawmaker's office told The Hill. The standards have come under fire from conservatives in recent years. Republicans won the inclusion of a similar provision in an omnibus spending compromise that House and Senate lawmakers agreed to in December. The provision blocked funding for implementation of the...

    A prehistoric eel-like creature discovered in a Canadian shale bed has been identified as the earliest known ancestor of man. Fossils dating back 505 million years preserve the relics of tiny, slithering animals which are the oldest life forms ever discovered with primitive spinal cords. As the precursor of vertebrates the species is also believed to be the direct ancestor of all members of the chordate family, which includes fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals. The finding means the 5cm long creatures, known as Pikaia gracilens, were the forerunners of animals as diverse as snakes, swans and humans, scientists said....

    The bulb is back. House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R.,Mich.) has finally agreed to support a bill this summer that means lights out on the looming 2012 ban on the incandescent light bulb. Upton himself co-sponsored 2007 legislation making light bulbs illegal, a ban that has become a symbol of bipartisan Big Government run amok. Upton has come under increased pressure in recent weeks, sources say, after failing to follow up on a promise he made after assuming the committee chairmanship that he would hold hearings on reversing the ban. After months of paralysis — and with...

    Rep. Michael Burgess, one of the few medical doctors in the House of Representatives today, gives us his opinion on the upcoming battle on reforming Healthcare. “Some of the things like health savings accounts and health reimbursement accounts may not even be qualified coverage under some of the Democratic plans so that a person would have to pay a fine in order to keep their insurance. Kind of makes a mockery out of the slogan, ‘If you like what you have you can keep it.’ “I sympathize with people that look at congress this year what has already been done....

    John R. Burgess makes for an improbable courtier of presidents, or of a senator who might become one. A disbarred New York lawyer with a criminal record for attempted larceny and patronizing a 16-year-old prostitute, Mr. Burgess owns International Profit Associates, a management consulting company in Illinois. Federal authorities are pressing a sexual harassment suit against the company on behalf of 113 former female employees. The Illinois attorney general is investigating accusations of deceptive marketing tactics, officials say, and the company has been the subject of 470 complaints to the Better Business Bureau across the nation in the past three...

    Top officials in Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s administration ordered the dismissal of a succession of mid-level state workers, plucked from a sheet of paper that an aide called the "death list," a former state personnel official told top lawmakers yesterday. The targeted employees were fired, in some instances, solely because they were Democrats, and in each case to make room for Republican political appointees, said Tom Burgess, who yesterday became the first former state employee to testify under oath before the panel investigating Ehrlich's personnel practices. The panel was convened this fall to examine complaints that Ehrlich (R)...

    Lawmakers heard colorful testimony Tuesday describing the hiring and firing practices of the Ehrlich administration, saying the governor's staff employed a hit list among state workers. WBAL-TV 11 News reporter David Collins reported that a former state worker testified for three hours before a special legislative committee. Thomas Burgess, a Republican who worked 15 years in state government, characterized Gov. Bob Ehrlich's administration as highly partisan and paranoid to the point of spying on their own people. Collins said the underlying theme to Burgess' three hours of testimony was that the Ehrlich administration wanted to weed out Democrats and bypass...

    Caught this interesting post on a British Blog {start of post snipped} Welcome to the new media world, Polly*. Up until now, an information elite has been able to misrepresent and manufacture fact with virtual impunity - sometimes accidentally, sometimes as a deliberate means of pushing a chosen agenda. For example, if a newspaper polemicist wanted to contend that "Scandinavian countries are best of all" at overcoming obesity, it was unlikely that many would notice and connect the fact that: "Norway has the highest percentage of overweight men in Europe, according to a new report by the World Health Organization...
