Comments

Cecil Turner

I doubt his radical conservatism approach to court reform will be helpful to him.

It ought to be. The Constitution doesn't say a lot about judges' rulings being sacrosanct (or their interpretations of the Constitution being supreme, for that matter). And in particular the recent muddle they (and Congress, unfortunately) have made of the law of war is unhelpful and will pay negative dividends in some future conflict.

The appeals courts, have been clawing back the overreach the Supremes made in Boumedienne, as 'devil's advocate' Andy Worthington, and the folk at emptywheel, indignantly natter on about,

Two other notes on Romney: he's now winning the electability primary- 25% of voters think he would have the best chance to defeat Obama compared to 17% for Gingrich and 16% for Paul. And he also leads Paul 24-18 among voters who watched the Sioux City debate on Thursday night, confirming general perception that he had the stronger performance.

And if those poll results stand, I think it's worth reviewing Rush's take on that NRO editorial:

Here's the thing. I think, if you add all of these things, the National Reviews, all of the other places that are piling on Newt, they are accomplishing something. And what they are accomplishing is making Ron Paul a serious player in Iowa. And I don't think that's their intention. But that's the unintended consequence here. [. . . ]

You might hear some of the establishment say that about Newt. "If this guy gets the nomination, I've had it." So it's puzzling, ladies and gentlemen. The main point that I made about it last hour is that this is all giving rise to Ron Paul. It's creating a vacuum. Newt's down ten points in Iowa; Ron Paul's up eight. All of this bloodletting has a result.

"I have this extraordinary feeling fo de ja vu, the notion that we've been here before,

RichatUF

Yeah, Ron Paul. I'm waiting for the wall-to-wall coverage of his newsletters that he "knew nothing about".

Thomas Collins

Gingrich should have realized that the whole issue of separation of powers in the context of the Executive Branch not following SCOTUS decisions is one that cannot be discussed intelligently in a campaign. That being said, there are situations, rare though they may be, where POTUS would actually have a constitutional duty not to follow SCOTUS. For example, if on 9/11 SCOTUS had issued an injunction to POTUS not to shoot down any civilian airliner, POTUS not only would have been acting within POTUS's constitutional powers to ignore SCOTUS, but also would have been abdicating his own duties if he failed to shoot down a civilian airliner he otherwise would have had shot down due to the SCOTUS injunction.

POTUS's duty is to preserve, protect and defend the US Constitution, not acquiesce to a runaway SCOTUS. If Congress concludes that POTUS is using its own constitutional duty as a pretext, Congress has the impeachment and removal from office power.

I hope Gingrich's ill considered remarks do not lead to an acceptance of the view that any SCOTUS decision must be followed as a matter of constitutional duty.

narciso

Well in 1988, Robertson who actually represented a larger faction that Paulbots, won in Iowa, it didn't really go very far,

Jane

They are saying that Huntsman is surging in NH. (Do not kill the messenger.)

I really wish someone could explain to me why people like Kim Jon Il do what they do. He wants power? Well wouldn't he have increased his power if he just turned on a few lights? What possesses these people? What is going on in their brains?

bolitha

Well, the media has succeeded in making Newt's numbers go down, and I think if Ron Paul wins in Iowa, the Iowa voters are not to be taken seriously.

Appalled

RichatUF:

The wall to wall coverage on the newsletters begins after Paul wins the Iowa caucus. Romney will make it so. Romney does not have to win Iowa, remember. All he really needs is for Gingrich to underperform expectations. Paul is helping Romney out, now.

And, Cecil, Obama will be very happy to have that disregard the Court precedent you seem to support, or even the best two out of three rule. Because that will certainly save Obamacare.

narciso

It' the Totalitarian impulse, that they can utterly remake human nature, which they consider ultimately corrupted. And nothing gets in their way, Albania under Hoxha, Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin, to varying degrees, as are Chavez and Fidel.

Extraneus

Sorry for posting this in two threads, but I found it hair-raising enough to justify the bad form...

EXCLUSIVE: EPA Ponders Expanded Regulatory Power In Name of 'Sustainable Development'

What is “sustainability” in the first place? That is a question the study ducks, noting that it is only advising EPA on how to bring it within the agency’s canon.

The experts take their definition from an Obama Administration executive order of October, 2009, entitled Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and Economic Performance. It defines sustainability in sweeping fashion as the ability “to create and maintain conditions, under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic, and other requirements of present and future generations.”

The study specifically notes that “although addressing economic issues is not a core part of EPA’s mission, it is explicitly part of the definition of sustainability.”

The experience of the European Union is deemed “particularly relevant” to achieving the sustainability goal.

That European strategy involves a virtually all-encompassing regulatory vision. The study notes that its priorities include “climate change and clean energy; sustainable transport; sustainable consumption and production; conservation and management of natural resources; public health; social inclusion, demography, and migration; and global poverty and sustainable development challenges.”

In an American context, the study says sustainable development “raises questions that are not fully or directly addressed in U.S. law or policy.” Among them: “how to define and control unsustainable patterns of production and consumption and how to encourage the development of sustainable communities, biodiversity protection, clean energy, environmentally sustainable economic development, and climate change controls.”

The study notes that sustainable development is “broader than the sum of U.S. environmental and conservation laws.”

It adds that “a great deal more needs to be done to achieve sustainability in the United States.”

Jane

It' the Totalitarian impulse, that they can utterly remake human nature, which they consider ultimately corrupted.

So essentially you are saying they are liberals gone wild?

Gingrich down? good he would lose to'Bam because he would turnoff women and indy voters. As exraneous posted twice, below is my response to extraneous in the other thread: Extraneous thanks for the Link on EPA Sustainability-- this is all part of 'Bam/Axelrod going hard left for the election. I suggested 3 months ago 'Bam's Raz daily negatives would 'improve' as his strong support from lefties rises and his strong negatives hovers about the same. That is happening, so 'Bam's net negative ranges minusx16-minus 24, and averages around minus 19 and average approval around 43-44%. It remains a losing strategy. 'Bam's one hope is that Repubs nominate such a negative candidate that Axelrod can smear them enough to turn off indy voters so they stay home. Repubs need indy voters to come out against 'Bam. So repubs need to nominate someone with a positive "Attractivenees Q-quotient" NOT a negative Q-quotient. Who's negative? Gingrich (physically ugly and a blowhard) and Paul (crazy uncle). Who's positive? Romney, and Jeb Bush or Ryan.That's all I care about-- beating 'Bam. I'll deal with the rest later.

Greta Van Susteren's blog has this info from Shannon Bream of FNC re: Supreme Court and Obamacare:

It appears the cases will be argued over a three day period: March 26 – 28th.

Just a bit more info:

March 26th – Anti-Injunction Act issue (1 hr) 10am

March 27th – Individual Mandate (2 hrs) 10am

March 28th – Severability (90 mins) 10am – and Medicaid issue (1 hr) 1pm

One forgets how many areas of attack, are available against this law,

Jim Miller

Jane - One of the things that motivated the Kims, and many other tyrants is access to attractive young women, the chance to have, in other words, a harem.

The Kim regime actually has had, for many years, a mini-bureaucracy devoted to finding and training women the Kims might like. As I understand it, the women are sometimes "passed along" to supporters.

(Mao had similar tastes, but relied, as I understand it, on his followers to provide for him, without a bureaucracy. Unfortunately for the young women, many contracted a disease from him. He could have had it cured according to one of his doctors, but couldn't be bothered.)

The harem isn't the main thing, the power is the main thing for almost all of them, but the harem is one part of the attraction for many of these guys.

glasater

I am sorry but Brad Thor is just a terrible writer.

Jack is Back! (The Anti-Prick)

OT: Last June, we took in the 10:15 mass at St. Patrick's during Pentacost Sunday. Cardinal Dolan was the celebrant and during the recessional came over to Frederick, who was in an aisle pew, ruffled his hair and asked "how'd I do? Thanks for coming. Want to go watch the parade (Puerto Rican Day) with me". Big thrill for Frederick.

So, this Sunday, while in NYC, we went back to the 10:15 mass hoping we could see and meet the Cardinal again. Sure enough during the recessional we had the great luck of a middle aisle pew and the Cardinal saw Frederick, came over and hugged him. Frederick asked him "do you remember me" and Dolan replied, "yeah we were going to the parade together". Amazing guy! How the heck did he remember that? Photo below.

NK

CentralCal -- thanks for the SOTUS schedule. No surprise they are doing it in march to leave time for a decision by the end of June. BUT-- 3 days 5.5Hours of argument? That is unprecedented. UM affirmative action, Bush v. Gore got no where near that argument time. What is going on?

Jim Miller/Jane-- Power/women? 2 sides of the same coin for power hungry men. This brings me back 14 years to the start of the Bill/Monica debacle. A very sharp and sober friend of mine who was then in-house counsel to a large multi-national corp explained to me the first weekend Drudge/NY Post broke the story that the Monica tale was true; how could he know I asked? the particular oral act involved sealed it for him. part of his job was settling harassment suits against senior company execs and corporate pilots. In every case the reltionship was oral-- it's a power thing for these guys he explained. It's always power, even the 'sex'.

What me worry, from the San Francisco Chronicle;

At midnight, Obama spoke with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and "reaffirmed the United States' strong commitment to the stability of the Korean Peninsula and the security of our close ally," according to a White House statement. The leaders agreed "to stay in close touch as the situation develops" and directed their national security teams to continue close coordination.

Jane - If you are interested in the details on the Kims and their "harems", you might take a look at Bradley K. Martin's "Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader".

That's just a minor part of the book, which is, as far as I can tell, a fine study of that bizarre regime.

OT-- I'm gobsmacked. Just read Herr Doktor Krugman's OpEd piece from today's SLimes. China -- Crack Up-- Not only was he right on just about all counts, but I agreed with just about everything.

I love these "would you give that power to a Democrat?" arguments. In the first place, the specific examples he gave were about SCOTUS giving civil rights to combat detainees, where SCOTUS and Obama agree. In the second, the next Congress will very likely overturn Obamacare, or fail to fund it, and his happiness will be moot.

Cecil Turner

Power is "I" trouble. They are the god.
...and IMO the harem/free sex aspect of the left is also the reason they hate God, the Bible, traditional morality.

This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. John 3:19

bgates

They, not I, know what you are talking about.

When it comes to hunting, they, not I, would know what I am talking about. My point was that an explanation of the difficult, time-consuming, and expensive effort that goes into satisfying a physical appetite would be hard to convey to a creature that can usually that appetite by just standing around.

Didn't Newt's opinion on judges and the Supreme Court come forward during the last debate when Megan Kelly asked the question?
Then Newt had to go into a 'talk' about what Jefferson did during his time in office and got the whole thing rolling to where we are now.

Thanks for posting that EPA story. Think of it this way-"the temperatures can fluctuate, the exact type of extraterritorial enviro crisis can change, but in the end, we must submit."

It is to be the centerpiece of K-12 classroom activities under the new national standards as I was working on today while trying not to punch through a wall in anger at the manipulation. Especially at the part about how children would feel confused, alarmed, and impotent by these types of problems and these emotions could be translated into lifelong changes in behavior.

The whole point of the enviro crisis, and yes I have the cites, is to get us to voluntarily give up, our rights and liberties and submit to the collective. That's close to a quote. If because of those Climate Gate emails and reality, individuals are rethinking what is necessary. The global kleptocrat class will simply take as Jackson shows.

Just wish me well on how to snark disdainfully through the description of such machinations.

“how to define and control unsustainable patterns of production and consumption"

Someone should tell the EPA that there are these things called markets, that result in prices. And when they're allowed to work, the result is (with rare exceptions, all easily remediable) "sustainable." When they are interfered with, all bets are off.

Soylent Red

but the harem is one part of the attraction for many of these guys.

Maybe in theory but not in practice. In the true spirit of Islam, i.e. taking an otherwise good thing and screwing it up because you are a sexually repressed loser, you don't even get the main benefit of having multiple wives. Under sharia, it's one at a time guys, and only one per night. Plus most of them would rather bugger the 10-year old chai boy anyway. Whole region of stinky, dirty Robert Maplethorpes.

I love the henna'ed hair over there, Soylent. Maybe Moobie can try it with that outfit he wore today.

According to the Mao biography published a couple of years ago, he liked underage girls.

Kruggie is finally coming to realization that bubbles, even those under dictators, eventually pop. There is so much opacity in China it's hard to put a rational analysis together.

What I do know that electronics manufacturing is running at @ 50% capacity since September and that the solar industry over there is crashing because of weak demand and huge overcapacity.

The Ponzi scheme generated by local governments will probably be the greatest crisis. This then ties into the banking system, which has been undercapitalized for years. There are no stress tests in China that we know of. Then come the state owned companies.

Old Lurker

Newt's comments about the overreach of judges have some good points, but saying he will ignore decisions he disagrees with will not sell well during a campaign.

On the other hand, a more general reform proposal would sell. Watch for Newt to start walking back most of his comments. . . as usual.

"Any poll or contest in which Ron Paul is on top cannot be taken seriously as an indicator of anything."

jimmyk,

If we imagine the hypothetical existence of a group trying to exercise control of the nomination process (we'll call this imaginary group "the establishment") and we imagine that the establishment has chosen a Harvard law school grad whose biggest accomplishment in public life has been the promotion and passage of an act compelling participation through forced purchase of health insurance as the perfect candidate to provide a stark contrast with the President, then the Iowa poll might be construed as a gesture implying that the poll participants believe the establishment to have the collective IQ of a litter of Irish Setters.

That would be silly, of course. There's no way that the establishment isn't smarter than a litter of Irish Setters. At worse, this decision just reflects a reversion of intelligence to not more than 1 or 2 SDs below mean. That would be entirely consonant with the current state of the oligarchy.

matt

those would be local Chinese gov't Ponzi schemes, OL.

Right now it seems they are all looking for greenbacks because the Euro is at such risk.

When Chinese RE crashes, there will be a huge sucking sound over there similar to '07-'08 here as banks default and local governments go BK. Poof, all of the funny money is gone. "What then" is the question.

Amen, Rick Ballard.
