Bobby Knight played on the last Ohio State championship basketball team. He was a dogged defender of head coach Fred Taylor when he was forced out and is still well regarded in most of Ohio.

Thomas Collins:

”Oligarch Media would be reluctant to go after the breaker of the glass ceiling during and after the time that The Hill is POTUS.”

Yes, I think that's is true. They'll be glad of an excuse to avoid the bad press for her prog agenda, and her detractors will get the same treatment that critics of "the 1st Black President" got. I don't think that calling someone a sexist will have quite the same resonance as calling someone a racist, though. If she ends up only serving briefly because of known health issues, she could conceivablty end up being seen as a traitor to both Dem & Fem causes.

The Anthony Weiner story just never ends, does it?

If anything in this story is accurate, is there any question that Weiner is guilty of actual crimes that should land him in prison and brand him as a sex offender for the rest of his life?

-- expectation that he will be working hand-in-hand with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to enact that Republican program –
What would happen if Trump sent Pence to the senate to fill the VPOUSA constitutional duty to be the president of the senate? WHAT IF Pence did that using the Rules of Order to:
-- Preside over the Senate instead of gaveling it over to the “Majority Leader”
-- Disregarded the good-old-boy committee appointment system to place only America First committee chairmen;
-- Allows only business on the floor that the “Chair” deems appropriate?
-- Appointing Senate/House legislative conference committee members who see thing Trump’s way

I could study up on Robert’s Rules but I bet he could wreck Uniparty Havoc just by being constitutional!

Imagine, working with Paul Ryan means telling him what the house will address in order to get its business moved to the senate for action.

I recall Sara mentioning “constitutional duties of the VP” once before McCain’s before handlers shut her down. I think the Uniparty may have caused this to come full circle?

Sandy I am so happy for you that you're there! Thank you for the liveblogging! And how exciting for you to be interviewed. They picked a good 'un. :)

Ain't nothing like a Trump rally. I encourage everyone to go see one if you can manage it.

That is two separate quotes juxtaposed but MLK did say both.
Posted by: rse | September 21, 2016 at 12:42 PM

I think you're buying Thomas F. Jackson's very clear revisionist attempt to claim an American hero for the side of the European Socialists far, far too easily rse.

That is the dream of these academics on the far left and they keep selectively quoting materials out of context as MLK was posturing against *THEM* to prove during a radical moment in history that he wasn't too conservative or Uncle Tom-ish.

No, I would not give them that gift. And it most definitely would be a gift.

Miss Marple 2, Deplorable and Proud of it

Porchlight,

DOubt we get one here in Indiana. That's why I watch them on live stream.

He doesn't give the usual stump speech, which traditionally has been the same at every stop for most candidates.

Each speech has recurring phrases but he has different themes and facts within each one, so each appearance is interesting and newsworthy.

Miss Marple 2, Deplorable and Proud of it

Sandy,

I, too, am happy you got to attend and thanks for reporting!

Please as punch you will be on Japanese TV!

Up until now, I doubt I would have walked across the street to go to a political rally, but I would probably drive the 2 hours down to Boise to see Trump. Not sure why . . . maybe just to see and feel for myself if it really is a "Movement" like some are claiming.

Of course, he probably won't be coming to Boise, since Idaho's four electoral votes are already in the bag--that McMuffin man's fantasies not withstanding.

Uniparty? You don't like Uniparty?

How else would we get news like this:

"On Tuesday night the Senate voted to proceed to the Continuing Resolution (CR), a bill that will allegedly fund the government until Dec. 9. The only problem is that there isn’t actually a bill yet. There is no text. There is no agreement between Democrats and Republicans on what the bill will fund — Planned Parenthood, the Export-Import Bank, control of the Internet — all of it remains a mystery. Yet the Senate voted 89 – 7 to proceed to this non-existent bill. "

Sandy--Make America Deplorable Again--Daze

Not TV, Miss M, a newspaper.

Gawd, you cannot pay me to have my face on TV.

All of my comments were without attribution.

(I learned in Iraq, where from time to time I engaged with the media, that you cannot be too careful. Respected media outlets are no guarantee, it always comes down to the interviewer, and almost all have their own agenda, more often than not at variance with reality.)

James D

Here's something I don't understand. Benghazi was horrible, but really it's only the cherry on top of a sundae of breathtaking incompetence, misjudgment and failure.

Even had the events of 9/11/12 never happened, the Libya intervention ought to be enough to disqualify Hillary from office anyway.

It was her operation, start to finish. She helped plan it, she sold it, she pushed it at every opportunity, and she had a large hand in actually running it.

It had no conceivable benefits to our national security or economic interests, or to human rights generally or the welfare of the Libyan people, even in foresight.

The campaign itself was shoddily planned and poorly run. The aftermath was not planned for at all.

Nothing good came of it, for anyone (excepting of course Hillary's friends and advisors who found ways to personally profit from the debacle). It made life worse for the people it was supposedly intended to help, it provided a new safe haven and recruiting ground for our enemies, and it degraded our national security and the safety of our citizens both here and abroad.

By every possible measure it was a complete failure and disaster from beginning to end, and it continues to be so to this day.

rse

RG-these are pretty extensive quotes and I did read the entire bio. More importantly this is consistent with what Andy Young is saying, what the Human Rights Museum now in Atlanta is saying, and it is also consistent with what I am hearing at the education and housing forums I go to and have for a number of years. It was at the (co)lab forum that I first heard the Beloved Community phrase and what leaders hear think they must have to get justice. That's why that is one of the post tags.

When Stanley Kurtz writes about Building One America it's in the context of Obama's pushes. I went back and forth in the bio as I do to read the sources against the text and there is no question the ire against the suburbs goes back to mlk. It also fits with why there is so much anger against sandy springs where I live. People have been taught that people moved here to abandon the inner city. If in his heart of hearts it is not true, it is a widely believed guiding fiction now that diverges between what different groups think the legacy is.

My point is how dangerous it is to makes concepts and visual images what guides actions and beliefs. I also have an uncle who also had a doctorate in systematic theology and taught at emory school of theology. This fits with how he viewed king's work.

Already, I have received a thank you note from DJT:

Aaand, the Trump web site has this little tidbit up:

https://www.donaldjtrump.com/press-releases/statement-from-former-president-of-haitian-senate-on-clinton-graft-in-haiti

rse

I didn't put it in that post but Angus Deaton who one last year's Nobel is at that new center and so is Philip Pettit. I had already read his book Just Freedom as it kept coming up to. There is definitely a common vision here and revisionist or not this is what is being taught.

The book also gives the example of mlk revising the Declaration of Independence. Here is the quote on the second part, but all of this is laid out especially in the "Egyptland" chapter.

"King still believed the War on Poverty activists could become the vanguard of a wider democratic revolution. 'Maximum feasible particpation' in law and practice created a new kind of citizenship, transcending occasional voting and tenant management schemes to foster poor people's 'participation in major decisions' affecting their lives. Community action and job-training centers were important sites of insurgent citizenship where people were 'hacking out the rights of the citizen' for everyone."

WIOA has been drafted to push this kind of citizenship. When we make knowledge about what guides perception in politically useful ways it is hard to have a factual discussion as to what really happened or what will work.

After the colab mentions I read a good bit about Bayard Rustin. I thought it was he who radicalized king. I cannot evaluate that but the author says in those last two years or so king was more radical than rustin. I keep thinking about the mall monument and that stern visage and wonder how many have been led to believe that until this is a socialist country the dream has not been met.

This was news to me and I grew up in atlanta.

Here's whats in the 04:27 link from Captain Hate:

CNN: At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret.

John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US?

"I froze," Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,"

How many CIA directors do we have who voted for Commies?

"And I want to do my best to answer those questions. When it comes to public service, the service part has always been easier for me than the public part. . . . No one will work harder to make your life better."

That comes after this opening paragraph and below the most cringing photo of Hilligula...well, EVER!

...in one bit I stopped on (about 1:00:00 in the above video) she is talking about police/community relations & she says -

"Too many people have lost their lives who shouldn't have."

She then brings up Sabrina Fulton, Trayvon's mom....Sabrina supposedly said - "This is about saving our children". What??
Trayvon wasn't killed by police.

And ya know...where was Sabrina Fulton in Trayvon's life BEFORE he was shot?
She divorced Trayvon's father. Trayvon was staying with his father's girlfriend when he attacked Zimmerman.

Where was Sabrina Fulton? She has a Foundation now...but where was she in Trayvon's life?

and this Clinton line really gets me - "Too many people have lost their lives who shouldn't have."

I am afraid it's either Trump or clarice's Pitchfork and Torch concession.

I used to be polite and turn the radio off when driving granddaughter around. Now I just turn on Rush or Hannity and she has to listen. If she doesn't like it, she can buy her own car.

As soon as I get that Les Deplorables shirt I am putting it on, and will wear it everywhere I go. I have to run to the auction house tomorrow night in order to see some friends (one old guy has to have surgery and wanted to say hi) and pick up a check. I hope that shirt comes tomorrow.

If my daughter starts in on me I will simply laugh. Neither she or my granddaughter knew who George Soros is, because they live in a coccoon of lefty stuff they read on the internet.

I read stuff from Salon occasionally, or Huffington Post, because you have to know what the other side is thinking. They never read ANYTHING except lefty stuff. I doubt they have ever even heard of PJMedia or Town Hall, let alone Infowars. (Meanwhile Nate is a fan of Infowars. HAHAHAHA!)

Soros-Linked ‘October Surprise That Will End Trump’: The Campaign To Register 8 Million ‘Global Citizens’ To Vote

daddy

Prager in a short comment last night about Obama's UN speech made this observation in an aside---America has always been multi-ethnic, but America has always had an American Culture. The Left wants America to quit having an American Culture and instead become Multi-Curtural.

That got me thinking. I like how Prager gets me thinking about such fundamental definitions. That I think is what prompts me to ask about CIA Head Brennen---If he was voting prior to 1980 for Communists, and he now is a Muslim Convert, when the hell did he have time to be an American? Communism and Islam are not part of the American Culture, no matter what Obama and his MSM Cheerleaders tell us. They are un-American at their very heart. When the hell was Brennan an American?

rse,

Interesting observation. Are we living in our own culture or one forced on us through TV, radio, media, advertising, movies, music, community changes (like zoning, traffic control, regulations, etc.) or are we maintaining what we have inherited?

This is something I have on my mind raising Frederick.

Well it is certainly the intention of educators, social science profs, media, etc to alter it without that being apparent. I am fighting back hard too. Honestly simply being a phonetically fluent well-read kid now is both unusual and creates a barrier to the manipulation.

Miss M,

If you can get Prager on the local channel I sure do recommend him.

Hannity even makes me turn him off, since as we've all mentioned before he won't let his damn guests talk, even when they are saying excellent stuff.

If they listen to Prager they'll think they're listening to NPR before it dawns on them that they just got converted to Conservatism.
