OnTopic-- there are many examples of authoritarian US 'client states' which used their military governments as a time to create market economies and property rights which served as the basis for civil society which is a predicate for democratic governments -- reagan, bush 41-43 did just that in S Korea, brazil, chile, panama, columbia etc. That will work in egypt as well. Of course reagan and bush 41- 43 allowed those military gov'ts to crush the anti-democratic commies before instituting elections. Problem now is that Obummer actually supports MBrather than democracy.

James D.

And people wonder why some of us don't trust the government with control of our healthcare.

Thuggish AND incompetent - truly a winning combination.

I'd really like to see someone (a high-ranking Republican, maybe? Who isn't a coward or permanantly ensconced at the trough? Oh, who am I kidding...?)

Anyway, I'd like to see someone ask Zero, or Sebelieus, or really and Zerocare supporter:

"Our secret diplomatic correspondence is supposed to be secret. Yet the Federal government designed a system that put all of it - EVERY SINGLE DIPLOMATIC COMMUNICATION FOR THE WHOLE STATE DEPARTMENT - at the fingertips of a 21 year old army private with no real computer skills, and with serious emotional problems, stationed in one of the most insecure and dangerous places on Earth. This was done on purpose. If that's how the government protects things it actually cares about keeping secret and protecting from misuse...why in the world should we trust that our personal, private health information is going to be kept secret or protected under Obamacare?"

JIB

DoT,

I dare say, old boy, but you much keep up. Housing is now free in America. And if you can't afford free, Habitat for Humanity will build one for you.

Hi all! Beautiful weather this week-end. But the vibrant green leaves of summer are ever so slowly turning yellowish,some have a touch of red. :( Just an FYI for rse...Maine's Ed Commissioner,Stephen Bowen has taken a position with the Council of Chief State School Officers.He will be Strategic Initiative Director for Innovation. He will direct work in emerging practices including digital learning,etc. Sounds like everything you've been warning about,rse.

Clarice

Hmm, I remember when we were all making fun of Greenwald and his sock puppetry..Don't you suppose Miranda was under suspicion because of Snowden?

JIB

daddy,

Then if he does, its open season on this commie dirtbag. The SS can protect his physical being but not his ego which I personally am ready to help destroy.

sbwaters

JiB, I think the old mac Painter program could have done that with a brush filter.

rse

Yes Marlene. That announcement was in today's emails.

http://www.ccsso.org/Who_We_Are/Business_and_Industry_Partnerships/Corporate_Partners.html

is a list of the corporate sponsors of CCSSO. Just a group of state ed officers indeed.

Ranger--in Yugoslavia the schoolchildren and parents knew the state was a predator. By the time the parents understand the model in effect and about to worsen, it was to be too late. Our League of Innovative Schools district that has yet to announce that or what it means has said that they will befocusing on achievement this year in elementary students.

Given the definition of achmt in the state waiver that means they are targeting the values, attitudes, beliefs, and what makes the kids tick emotionally. What happens to kids where the adults in the central office and the consultants they are bringing in want to scramble how their minds work at a fundamental level?

Everybody just chasing after lucrative promotions and contracts.

JIB

I never knew Glenn Greenwald was gay. I used to pull his chain on Islamic Extremism, Iraq, 911 and Afghanistan all the time. I will say one thing for him - always polite and non-argumentative with his replays.

But lets give this thing a break. Snowden is out there. He has stuff and we now know how bad it is. Lets not get carried away. Stopping someone who is a 3rd tier (if that player) only makes intimidation less scary and more inviting for the civil libertarians. It is what it is.

daddy

The energy landscape is changing radically. Peak oil seems to be a thing of the past for the next several decades, at least.

Matt,

And as our output up here continues to dwindle, once again the Committee to Host The Winter Olympics in Anchorage is reconvening under the idiotic assumption that it'll be a good deal for the City Taxpayers to take on decades worth of billions of dollars of Debt in order to put on some 2 week drunk fest in 2022 or 2026.

As soon as "The Committee to Keep the Winter Olympics out of Alaska" starts up I'm joining.

rse

frau--

Can you email me?

If you do not still have my email, you can use the blog contact us.

'Peak oil seems to be a thing of the past'

When was the last time Saudi Arabia allowed Petroleum engineers to assess the remainder?

Answer; Never. Ketchup..

Rick Ballard

I certainly wouldn't put muttering "Elihu Snackbar" to security agents past Greenwald's personal loofah bearer. I wouldn't put anything past a progressive publicity pimp like Greenwald.

JIB

PJ pantload,

More uneducated BS from Pitzer alumni. Saudii knows exactly what their reserves are thanks to PE's from the States and all the SA students we have educated in the last 50 years in Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma oil schools. You really are an incorrigible stupid left wing nut job.

BTW, whens the last time you were in the Kingdom? I was back two years ago and its rolling along, this time exporting refined product. Now, why would they do that if they are running out of crude?

Ignatz

--Yes the US is becoming Balkinized. Thank you Federalism--

As Federalism is diminished more and more, to the point of irrelevance in many areas, it gets the blame for the concurrent balkanization that occurs while it loses influence?

Is it possible the growing anti Federalism of our national government, which thrives on and encourages balkanization just might be more to blame?

PJ pantload

" only makes intimidation less scary and more inviting for the civil libertarians."

thanks for that. It seems an endorsement (unwittingly) for looking closely at Rand.

Ranger

I'm sure that it had everything to do with Snowden. But last time I checked, Snowden had political asylum in Russia. So, unless the Brits have decided that Russia is a terrorist state, using an "anti-terror" law in this situation would appear to be bad faith on the part of the state.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

Yeah but Daddy, he's pretty much a joke to everyone but the republican congress.

JIB

Okay, Jane. What is May 2014?

Clarice

ranger, I suspect that if Greenwald has stuff from Snowden on his PC etc, he might have thought having his partner carry the stuff thru customs was a safe bet. Just saying. Greenwald is seriously tied to the leaks.

Scott Brown in Iowa tests presidential waters

daddy

JiB,

Our good Brit Petroleum friend used to do an excellent job explaining to me the methods by which they determined the reserves in the Saudi Arabian fields. Perhaps later tonight I'll ask the BP and the Conoco folks living next door to go into more detail on the latest concerning the reservoirs from the Peninsula.

Marlene

Jane,he is also testing the Senate waters in NH. I think Mark Steyn is a better choice for NH! Doesn't Mark Steyn live in the northwestern corner of NH,near the VT and Canadian borders?

Danube on iPad

Astonishing:

"Time magazine’s senior national correspondent Michael Grunwald faced fire Saturday night after he tweeted in support of a drone strike on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a comment that he deleted soon after WikiLeaks called for Mr. Grunwald’s resignation. 'I can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange,' Mr. Grunwald tweeted, according to a report by Mediaite.com. WikiLeaks quickly responded: 'We have written to TIME magazine to ask for Michael Grunwald’s resignation Time must show that journalists calling for the murder of other journalists, or, indeed, anybody, is never acceptable,' Wikileaks added."

Clarice

I don't know, Jane..some more nekkid pics of him are sure to turn up if he runs.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

I was standing next to John Sununu on the cruise an d asked him about Brown's run in NH. His reply:

"That would be a big mistake."

I agree. He's a good looking and very nice man. But he;s a lightweight IMO.

Yeah Steyn is n NH. Hugh Hewitt is pushing the idea.

Clarice

I thought Steyn was not yet a citizen.

henry

Network news, defending the MB is what they do... Took affront to the notion that they are biased. Wouldn't accept facts from the Egyptian govt, but believe whatever the MB tells them. Look, teen setting!!!11!!

Extraneus

but if a Republican wins, this jackass resume polisher is going to be dissing every move a Republican president makes

That's why the next nominee should run against Obama. Make Hillary defend him or say why she's different. Make Obama either swallow the insults or try to personally respond during the campaign.

"For the past eight years, this country has been led by the worst president in our history. Yes, this is a testament to the resiliency of our system of government, but democracy is fragile, and our system may not survive another term like the last two."

Unlike Republican leaders in Congress, the next nominee's statements will be widely reported, especially if they're provocative. I recommend baiting this douchebag at every opportunity.

Romney should have done this, but he was too nice a guy. Or at least too squeamish.

PJ pantload

"I agree. He's a good looking and very nice man. But he;s a lightweight IMO."

All that will change once you photo him next to his pick-up truck.
He's the genuine article.

Sexting. (Stupid autospell)

Ignatz

--'I can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange,' Mr. Grunwald tweeted, according to a report by Mediaite.com.--

Hmm, can it be a coincidence that Time's big cheese reporter wants to kill Assange shortly after Assange says something along the lines that libertarian Republicans are the only ones defending freedom in the USA?

Mike Giles

Uh. Aren't we supposed to be in favor of brutal crackdowns on Islamists. And that old saw about oppression leading to radicalization is simply used as an excuse to stop the US from supporting the people who are our side.

daddy

...he's pretty much a joke to everyone but the republican congress.

Jane,

The fact that this weasel still hasn't said a single word to defuse the Rodeo Clown incident, and that the Media and the State Politicians are allowing and encouraging him to get away with it, tells me that the Media and the Left will fight to the death to make damn sure Obama comes off as the next Abraham Martin Luther Ghandhi, regardless how much of a clusterf#$%er he is in everything related to reality.

MarkO

Others are not feeling secure. It is also troubling that we would know nothing of these abuses and our loss of freedom and privacy without the Snowdens of yesteryear.


“University of San Diego law professor Donald A. Dripps has an important new article in the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology: “Dearest Property”: Digital Evidence and the History of Private “Papers” as Special Objects of Search and Seizure (103 J. Crim. L. & Criminology 49 (2013)). (H/T Mike Ramsey at The Originalism Blog). In it, he presents a powerful case that the seizure of private papers by government authorities for later perusal was considered a distinct and equal injustice as that of issuing general (nonparticularized) warrants. As such, one’s papers merited much greater protections from seizures that one’s “effects” or personal property. Indeed the “seizure” of one’s papers for later perusal to find incriminating information therein had the hallmarks of the evils of general warrants. He then connects this historical analysis with contemporary debates over the seizure of digital information.”

Extraneus

the Left will fight to the death to make damn sure Obama comes off as the next Abraham Martin Luther Ghandhi

Which is exactly why he should be mercilessly slimed in 2016.

Oh, for a candidate who had the stones to do it.

"Do you remember how much your house was worth before Obama took office? Were you fooled by Democrat claims of corrupt bank executives? Do you know of any bank officials who the Obama-Holder Justice Department has prosecuted?"

"These claims were a smokescreen, engineered to obscure Obama's support for so-called 'sub-prime' loans. This euphamism has nothing to do with the Prime Rate. These were loans the banks were forced to make to people who didn't have the income or credit rating to deserve such loans."

"You may have heard that Obama was a 'law professor,' but that wasn't true. He wasn't a professor at all. He was a 'lecturer' at the University of Chicago, where he taught about community agitating. Obama's thin legal experience was actually limited to suing banks to force them to make loans to undeserving borrowers - the same people whose failure to repay their loans was responsible for the unprecedented reduction in the value of your home."

Etc.

Lot of rumors floating around over what You Tube video caused the spontaneous Egyptian uprising.

Expect the State Department to make it official any time.... bad reviews and box office for the movie "White House Down"...really angered both the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian military.

daddy

Thanks DoT.

Time Magazine's Michael Grunwald in 2011, on the Tucson Shootings:

The mayhem in Tucson has revived a debate over America's gun culture that resurfaces every time some lunatic overexercises his right to bear arms.

Time Magazine's Michael Grunwald today:

--'I can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange,'

And other comments from the Time mag vaults on the danger of heated rhetoric:


Time Magazines Nathan Thornburgh commenting on Sarah Palin's "Violent Rhetoric."

at the height of the health care reform battle, Giffords' office was vandalized. She mentioned in an MSNBC interview that a Sarah Palin graphic had depicted her district in the crosshair of a gun sight. "They've got to realize there are consequences to that," she said. "The rhetoric is incredibly heated."

Time Magazines Amy Sullivan commenting on Sarah Palin's “lock and load” rhetoric.

what we heard today (from Palin) was a somewhat desperate attempt to make the case that extreme political rhetoric can be healthy and appropriate, that it has a valid, defensible place in our politics. You have to give her credit–it’s hard to think of a worse time to press that argument. But if she didn’t make the case, she’d have to change her tune.

etc.

Time Magazine's Michael Grunwald today:

--'I can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange,'

"And other comments from the Time mag vaults on the danger of heated rhetoric:"

He was duly spanked for his tweet so sweet. Recanted, because he wants to retain some credibility for 'journos without borders, or professional ethics'.

Jane,

Has Richard Fernandez (Wretchard) been on one the NRO cruises yet?

He is about my favorite go to guy (besides Narciso) tying all these strands together understandably.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

Not yet Daddy.

narciso

Assuange isn't a journalist, he's at best an information broker as we've discovered who has accomodated himself to the modern day Strelsy that surrounds Volodya, he was unwilling to do the most superficial review, to prevent the burning of persons who had worked with us, in Afghanistan and Iraq, Snowden is himself an appendage of the Wikileaks organization,

But you make an interesting point, Ext, imagine if W had waited 5 years to charge Skilling and co, one would never have heard the end of it, Mozilo got a pass, Cassani got a pass, Dimon certainly got a pass.

Ranger

Well, with the Brotherhood's capitulation today by calling off their marches, the government has apparently decided to end the non-official kinetic unfriending (via the BBC):

The interior ministry separately said so-called "people's committees", which have been set up by residents of some areas to provide security, would be banned because some had been used for vigilante activities.

PJ pantload

Yeah. Thanks for the authoritarian view of who qualifies for the designation, 'journalist'

Now go confer with Feinschstein on a tiered definition of journalist based upon how much money you make. Enjoy your alliance, turdmonger.

Well at least we have Penny Pritzker at Commerce.

Apparently Steyn is not a citizen. Hewett contends under the 17th amendment he doesn't need to be.

It's just a joke -- some horseplay that Hewitt started that Steyn is having fun promoting on twitter. Doubt there's enough money or prestige on the planet to cause an iconoclast like Mark Steyn to sit around with those self-important humorless blowhards. Sure is entertaining to think about though, isn't it?

centralcal

Why can't we do away with the whole Iowa thing? How well has it worked before? Why is Iowa set in stone as the determiner (is that a word?) of our primary candidates?

Thomas Collins

Jane, did you happen to meet Dan Mahoney on the Norway cruise? Professor at Assumption in political philosophy. Solzhenitsyn scholar. I read his book on Solzhenitsyn's political philosophy. In any event, I found out this weekend that Mahoney was best man at the wedding of one of my work colleagues. Small world.

centralcal

Agree (A)B - plus, I think Steyn enjoys (mostly when he isn't appearing in some court or other) his life outside the asylum that is our Congress.

PJ pantload

"He seems to have a violent fixation;"

Obotism. Please extinguish the flame.

Iowa allowed the candidacies of both Carter and Obama, to rise from their merited obscurity, that merits a 'nuking from orbit, just to be sure' in my book.

Very good, daddy. I' posting that onFB. I suppose this Grunwald is Mandy (Hillary brain trust)Grunwald's brother and both are the children of Time ex honcho Grunwald.

Do away with the Iowa primary coming first and we can kill the ethanol subsidy--2 birds with one stone.

(A) nuther Bub

Right, CC. It would be a terrible fate for a brilliant thinker and writer like Steyn to be among those clods. Doubt if he could tolerate it for a week.

And as he said to Hewitt when the suggestion was made, if the WashPo could make 42 above-the-fold stories on merely the word "macaca," they could fill the entire paper for a year on just one Mark Steyn column.

Instead of badmouthing the Repub platform of 2012, Priebus should be wiping his pansy ass with the part of the Iowa constitution that says those ethanol loving hayseeds need to go first in the primaries. I don't have anything against the residents of the Hawkeye state per se; in fact Mrs H has a lot of family there whom I like. But eff this pathetic need to go first.

Mark Levin's ideas are outstanding, Jane. Some of my fellow morons have been calling for that for at least four years. Mark just fleshed it out better.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

The Hannity special with Levin is being repeated right now.

I'm not sure I understand everything he is saying, but I'd like to talk about it.

Captain Hate on an iPhone

Jane, it's something that was included in the Constitution, primarily due to George Mason, to address the concerns of some states regarding the federal government deviating from the will of the governed. It isn't a quick or easy process by design.

Clarice

From the Baltimore Sun here's a synopsis of his proposal so everyone who wants to can consider it:


To return America to its constitutional boundaries, Mr. Levin proposes a series of "liberty amendments" to the Constitution, beginning with one limiting the terms of congressmen so they might avoid the bipartisan virus that infects even some who believe in limited government, mutating them into power-hungry influence seekers with little regard for the public good.

Another amendment would establish term limits for Supreme Court justices. "The point is," argues Mr. Levin, "that the Framers clearly intended to create intrinsic limitations on the ability of any one branch or level of government to have unanswered authority over the other."

Another amendment would establish spending limits for the government. Another would grant states the authority to check Congress.

Mr. Levin admits these amendments are unlikely to win congressional approval because in Washington power is not willingly relinquished. That's why he proposes the states bypass Congress, as the Framers provided, and pass these amendments themselves. As Mr. Levin notes, "Article V (of the Constitution) expressly grants state legislatures significant authority to rebalance the constitutional structure for the purpose of restoring our founding principles should the federal government shed its limitations, abandon its original purpose and grow too powerful, as many delegates in Philadelphia and the state conventions had worried it might."

narciso

It does seem the Courtier class in both parties, are examples of Michel's iron law, it takes a crowbar to wrench them from their perches

jimmyk

Thanks, Clarice, I couldn't figure out what people were talking about.

I like the idea of the states asserting themselves. I'm not as sure about these specific amendments. I'm on board for term limits for Congress, though I doubt they would make a huge difference. Not so enthusiastic for SCOTUS term limits.

But the fact is, we already have the 9th and 10th amendments and they are flouted by the federal government, so I'd rather try to elect better people to Congress and the Presidency, and have a Tea Party contract with America.

DrJ

Political allies of Vice President Joe Biden have concluded that he can win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination—even if Hillary Clinton enters the contest—and are considering steps he could take to prepare for a potential candidacy.

But I want Thomas and Scalia to undergo life extension therapy.

The call that Obama has been usurping the Constitution seems to be growing. We need to continue to highlight his fascist tendencies. He has done more damage to our government than any of his predecessors. he has been more incompetent than all but a very few. Even Carter is criticizing him.

Beasts of England

Levin's a good thinker and a passionate guy. He could refine his radio delivery and become more effective. His books do a better job of conveyance, in my opinion.

Gus

I love Levin, but he does get crazy on the radio.

jimmyk

Like any good despot, Obama doesn't care about substantive criticism.

I'd love to see Biden get the nomination, as I think he wouldn't stand a chance in the general. Of course I thought that about Obama in '08, so please disregard the previous remark. One can never underestimate the intelligence of the voting public.

No doubt many would find him out of control...don't let that distract from the sound thought behind the Liberty Amendments.
