The Senate on Thursday approved a spending measure that keeps the federal government open for three more weeks, likely the final short-term resolution before Congress and the White House must agree on a final budget for the fiscal year.

The vote was 87-13 to approve the bill, which brings to $10 billion the total amount cut from 2010 spending levels.

Here is a link to  3/15/11 House vote breakdown by individual votes
The final tally: 271-158.
After the bill passes the Senate (which it will), this CR will fund the federal government through April 8th while cutting $6 Billion in spending.   The Republican House majority has now acted in good faith on three separate occasions in the past month alone to prevent a federal shutdown.

Fifty-four Republicans voted no, primarily because they (a) believe the cuts are insufficient, and/or (b) are fed up with short-term fixes to the 2011 budget mess — which was fomented by Democrats’ inaction to begin with.

Contrast those GOP “nay” votes with the 104 House Democrats who also opposed the resolution, primarily because they view the $6 Billion in cuts as too deep (!)

Reporting from Washington

As expected, the U.S. Senatefailed Wednesday to advance either the House Republicans’ spending bill or an alternative proposal offered by Democrats, leaving lawmakers just nine days to work on a compromise plan or face a government shutdown. The vote in the Senate was 56-44 against the plan approved by the Republican-led House last month, which would cut current spending levels by $61 billion. A subsequent vote on the alternate proposal from Senate Democrats, which offers cuts of $6.5 billion, failed 58-42. Sixty votes were needed to advance the measures.  LA Times

Who was NPR Marxist Vivian Schiller?

I have been a bit under the weather, but when I heard we had just gotten rid of this Marxist who was President of NPR, I rose to the occasion. I grabbed a few pieces of our earlier posts on her. Hot Air reports: Hot Air here

Did she jump — or did she get pushed?  NPR announced the resignation of Vivian Schiller this morning, but the Daily Caller read the Twitter feed of NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik, which told a different story:

BREAKING: The board for NPR NEWS has just ousted CEO Vivian Schiller in the wake of video sting by conservative activist of a top exec

Here is NPR’s Bio of her:

Here tis:NPR Org

Schiller began her career as a simultaneous Russian interpreter in the former Soviet Union, which led her to documentary production work for Turner Broadcasting.

She graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor’s degree in Russian studies and Soviet studies, and a Master’s degree in Russian from Middlebury College.[4]

Prior to leading NPR, Schiller was a senior vice presidentof[4] She was the first general manager of Discovery Times Channel (now Investigation Discovery), from 2002 – 2006.[5]

A Great piece here at the Spectator who give more of her Soviet involvement and Ted Turner,

Ms. Schiller is suddenly infamous as the National Public Radio executive with Soviet-style values on display in the firing of Juan Williams.

Where would an American media executive ever learn that dissent is not to be tolerated?

How about a film project called Portrait of the Soviet Union?

It was lovely. A glowing documentary of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics produced in documentary film format by a big Soviet Union fan — Ted Turner.

The 1988 film was also made into a book of the same name, with Fitzroy MacLean, a onetime British MP listed as the author. By 1988 MacLean was the “chief consultant” for Turner Broadcasting.

Another story from, Town Hall has this disturbing update:

Schiller, a former New York Times executive, is one of a few dozen power players working with the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and a leftist group called Free Press to “reinvent journalism.” That’s how the FTC describes it. The FCC calls what they are doing the “Future of Journalism.” Free Press, a think tank funded by leftist billionaire George Soros, among others, calls it “the new public media.”

With now-former NPR analyst Juan Williams suitably splattered across the evening news after politically incorrect comments he made on Fox News, Schiller can return to her real passion – the creation of a national network to ensure that in the future, you get your news from the government in general and NPR in particular. Keep Apologizing Vivian, we got your number , who explained in a speech to the NPR board of directors in 2009, it is public radio’s responsibility to fill the gap in journalism left by dying local television stations and newspapers.

If Schiller and her liberal friends have their way, Fox and its viewers will pay the bill for her new government news network.

It’s all the same thing, a plan to take over local news coverage from for-profit television, radio and print media, which Schiller and her friends claim is in danger of extinction. These “friends” get together regularly with the heads of the FCC and FTC to brainstorm the details in government and congressional meetings. These meetings include the leaders of all the country’s public broadcasting outlets, including PBS, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and American Public Media.
