Last year wS the 150th celebration at Chicamauga

Obama s history is in Indonesia
He has no roots or connections here

--Would Root have failed a background check?--

No. He in fact passed one. NICS only covers convictions and presumably legal institutionalization for mental illness.
If one is a drug abuser or is under indictment those questions are asked on the 4473 but it is strictly the honor system as there are no records for NICS to check on in those cases.

1919-1924, especially the 1924 Dem Party Convention was the high point of the Klan. The 18th Amendment/Volstead Act had passed, so a lot of german/catholic beer brewers were quickly bankrupted. The KKK-Progs then moved on to eugenics laws to protect the gene pool. The KKK's influence quickly faded and it withdrew back to the South when the Depression hit and deepened. The 21st amendment repealing prohibition marked the end of the KKK-Prog national movement. Oddly enough, the anti-immigration KKK goal was realized as there was a 40 year pause in mass-immigration from the start of the depression all the way to Ted Kennedy opening the floodgates in 1966. That massive immigration continues to this day.

Appalled is the opposite of a troll.
He very, very seldom gets angry or insulting even when insulted by others and he is always interested in discussing the issues not flaming people or making pointlessly provocative comments just to get a reaction.

Appalled is unfailingly polite. It's very easy to disagree with or ignore their comments.

Taranto:

A story in today’s New York Times ends with this anecdote:
In Austin, Tex., a tall bearded man went into the tattoo parlor where Kelly Barr works with a request: the removal [of] a 10-year-old tattoo of the Confederate flag.

He told Mr. Barr that he had decided to get the flag removed when he saw the pained look on a middle-age black woman at his gym on Monday.

“ ‘If South Carolina can take theirs down,’ ” Mr. Barr recalled him saying, “ ‘I can take mine down.’ I told him, ‘Right on.’ ”

We hope this story is true, though it appears too good to check unless the tall, bearded, formerly tattooed man comes forward to identify himself.

Anyone believe this? I don't, not from that rag.

Rick Ballard

Appalled is also actually Moderate. Definitely a First Circle candidate.Trolls, OTOH, will wind up in the Fourth, Fifth, Eighth or Ninth Circle, depending upon their particular depravity. DuDa will spend eternity doing the the entire circuit, less the First.

Hey, NK - I just shot you an email.

From narc's 4:47:

Few anticipated that his presence in the White House would become a flashpoint for racial anxiety as well. “If you are a white man in America, this country is changing dramatically. You have always been in charge,” said a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity be candid. “So there is something to white men feeling like something has been taken away from them.”

What this white man feels has been taken from him is the integrity of the office of POTUS currently occupied by a fraud who lied himself into it by promising racial healing and a united country and then set out and intentionally accomplished the precise opposite.

Well now we know why that little fraud has moved for a court order barring publication of the coroner's report (too late now)... the coroner ruled it an accidental death, because the little twerp either stood up or at least sat up shackled in the van and fell from that position and injured himself. That lying little bitch.... she needs to wind up like the Durham N.C.DA.

Seriously, the eternal Clinton groupie asks if Trey Gowdy has no sense of shame.

I told The Hill that THEY had no sense of shame for publishing Davis.

it's been a while, since we've seen Lanny go full Vizzini,

when everybody insists something is the correct conclusion, which always happens to dove tail with Dem party objectives, I tend to doubt it,

Of course Davis cites McArthyism. It's all so utterly predictable I could be a dem strategist.

I'm hopelessly behind, but thank you Rick Ballard for linking that excellent essay on Hamilton in the last thread. Here it is again for those who may have missed it:

Janet

President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast 2015 - “Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.” (note - ISIS had just burned alive a Jordanian pilot who was a hostage held in a cage)

President Obama at the Iftar dinner 2015 - "The koran teaches that god's children should tread gently upon the earth - & when confronted by ignorance reply, "Peace". In honoring these familiar values together - of peace, charity & forgiveness - we affirm that whatever our faith, we are all one family."

Porchlight

Says it all, Janet.

Gentlejim

Good on Walker for his intent to sign those two bills and kudos to the WI legislature for getting the bills to his desk.

Any guesses as to what the next "look, squirrel" moment will be? I'm having difficulty coming up with a new scandal since so many horrible things have happened the last several years. What else could be on the horizon? What will the Left's distraction be?

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz

Here's an idea;
Rather than a flag, affirmative action, right wing Jews, left wing agitators, Christians (huh?), the NRA or the Brady Campaign, hows about we blame the one guy responsible for the shooting: Dylann Roof?
He is an adult and does not seem legally insane and purposely chose by his own little self what he did. Millions of people brought up in far worse circumstances don't do what he did so lets look no further than we need to; the black heart of an evil little monster.

Janet

Anyone believe this? I don't, not from that rag.

or how about this, lyle -

Iftar dinner remarks -

"We saw this play out recently at a mosque in Arizona. A group of protestors gathered outside with offensive signs against Islam and Muslims. And then the mosque’s leaders invited them inside to share in the evening prayer. One demonstrator, who accepted the invitation later, described how the experience changed him; how he finally saw the Muslim American community for what it is -- peaceful and welcoming."

Really?...What was his name?

narciso

interesting he should use, the passage, that the GZ Mosque promoters were pushing:

http://www.thecordobafoundation.com/attach/peace_leaflet_muslim_final.pdf

it's a rather unique passage among the main body,

jimmyk

I enjoyed the Hamilton essay too. I've read the Chernow biography and had very much the same impressions of Hamilton, though I could not have worded it as well. Overwhelmingly positive, but perhaps temperamentally not ideally suited for leadership. He was in some ways the Ted Cruz of his day.

NKonChrome

AllahPundit nails the tragedy that is Jim Webb. He rode the anti-Iraq Prog wave into the 2006 Senate election, and now the Progs have devoured him. http://hotair.com/archives/2015/06/24/democratic-presidential-candidate-jim-webb-lets-settle-down-about-the-confederate-flag-okay/

NKonChrome

Jindal definitely has a place in the conservative movement (sorry TK)

Miss Marple

Jindal was pretty good.

I noticed he used Trump's "we don't have victories anymore" idea, rephrased and quoting Patton.

Excellent. It shows he is paying attention and can read the mood of the electorate, which is a very good thing.

Extraneus

I liked the Chernow book, too, and thought it amazing how Hamilton decided to handle the blackmail matter. As Chernow went over the back and forth between Hamilton and Burr that led to the duel, I kept thinking of what Hamilton should have done instead, but it seemed that there was no other way but to go through with it, even though he had no desire to kill Burr. Of course, Burr's heart wasn't quite so clean.

Via Hot Air...There goes Plan A, plan b, plan c, plan d...all the way through plan Kay. Dems have to come up with Plan L if they want a shot at winning the Senate seat in NC in 2016.

Former North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan will not be mounting a challenge to her former GOP colleague, Sen. Richard M. Burr.

Hagan, who was defeated by Thom Tillis in 2014, has been making calls to inform donors she will not be running for the seat that comes up in 2016, two sources familiar with the calls told Roll Call.

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz

Interesting viewpoint, if not already linked; I am a black South Carolinian. Here’s why I support the Confederate flag.

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz


Funny stuff, MM.

jimmyk

Incidentally, when I said Hamilton was the Ted Cruz of his day, I didn't mean that to be a criticism of either, just a personality description. Both brilliant, self-assured, uncompromising. We might need more of that today than was needed back in the 1790s.

Threadkiller

From the speech:


As for me, I’m sick and tired of people dividing Americans. And I’m done with all this talk about hyphenated Americans. We are not Indian-Americans, Irish – Americans, African– Americans, rich Americans, or poor Americans – we are all Americans.

See, I knew he was distancing himself from his Foriegn allegiance. Just like Cruz.

Did anyone catch that he forgot to mention that his mama was knocked up when she and his dad wanted to get in on the American experiment?

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz

So TK, do you read the Constitution as actually saying Natural Conceived Citizen?

NKonChrome

TK-- regarding Jindal, I was referring to his philosophy of building coalitions in the conservative movement. He's too aloof to ever be nominated for POTUS, so no eligibility disputes there.

Captain Hate on the iPad

That Twichy collection of tweets slattering the melanin challenged Children of the Cornhole was hilarious. Plus whatever dickhole wrote that piece of trash article should travel to Delhi if he wants to see how "real Indians" think about the rock worshiping vermin while still being respectful of their shrines, a courtesy which would never be reciprocated.

404 needs to stop talking about the Crusades if he wants to be remembered as being smarter than Costanza.

On a much more pleasant subject, it seem sto me that this suggestion for the ten dollar bill deserves a Photoshop.

And there is no shortage of photos of the famous actress I am suggesting, half seriously, that we honor.

(BTW, although everyone seems to think that a woman would have to displace Hamilton, I don't see why we couldn't have both, or even more than two kinds, of tens.)

Telephone town hall w/ Paul Ryan. He's getting hammered on TPA. Claims it gives Congress more control over Obama than they have over say Iran deal. Don't know about that, but it is good for him to get pressed by Racine County.

McClintock claims the same thing, Henry.

henry

Claims it helps on Chinese IP theft. That's a real problem, but without seeing the deal, how can anyone say that? Good generic argument for trade agreements, but implies some trust of our negotiators.

If the TPA was such a good deal, why didn't the proponents explain what the agreement entailed and why it was so beneficial to American citizens and businesses before they concocted their deceitful scheme to pass it? We all know the answer to that, and so do they.

A pox on all of them!

why didn't the proponents explain what the agreement entailed ...

It has not been negotiated yet.

I missed out on the scheme. So far the TPA is passing (I haven't checked out today's results though) as a stand alone bill.
