With just a few episodes left of the Glenn Beck program on Fox News, the conservative pundit has little time remaining to warn about the dangers plaguing the American people. Unwilling to waste that time, Beck used Wednesday’s episode to caution his viewers about Agenda 21, a Soros-sponsored plan implemented by the United Nations for “sustainable development.”

Give Dennis Kucinich credit for tenacity. Having been thwarted by the House of Representatives’ leadership in his attempt to get the House to pass a resolution demanding an end to President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional war in Libya, the Ohio Democrat, along with nine other Congressmen, is suing Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates in federal court in hopes of putting a stop to the United States’ involvement in the NATO operation.
After adamantly resisting calls for his resignation, New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner announced his resignation moments ago during a press conference in Brooklyn, New York.

The Constitution was intended to impose checks and balances, separation of powers, and other limits on the power of government, particularly the federal government. Any reading of that foundational document that ignores that purpose ignores the Constitution entirely. Among the three branches of the federal government, the “least dangerous branch” was the federal judiciary. The Supreme Court is the only federal court provided for in the Constitution, although lesser federal courts could be created (and destroyed) by Congress, and the jurisdiction of all those federal courts, with only very limited explicit jurisdiction by the Supreme Court, was determined by Congress.
