Looking back at some of the stories on CNSNews.com this week is just magical.

The Treasury Department's Financial Management Service is reporting that in July the federal government ran a deficit of $98 billion but almost magically the federal government's debt remained exactly $16,699,396,000 for the entire month – just $25 million below the legal limit set by Congress.

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) amazes us as he separates illegal aliens from criminals even though “it’s obvious that they broke the laws and did things that were criminal and they shouldn’t.”

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration boggle the mind as they release their “State of the Climate in 2012” report, claiming, “worldwide, 2012 was among the 10 warmest years on record.” But some claim they fail to mention that the year was one of the coolest in a decade.

Be amazed as Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest creates laughter as he fields a question about the administration going around Congress to raise a tax.

Laughter and sorrow combine in a story about the Missouri State Fair imposing a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama has come under scrutiny.
