This is an interview by EPOCH TIMES of Larry Elder. Good stuff!
A magic 50-minutes with Larry Elder. He weaves the reality that the Left can only weave — and that is this:
▼ the bankruptcy of and the consequences of the “state” [statist ideology] that came to fruition in Ferguson in the micro via the MACRO application of failed leftist policies! (e.g., the welfare state, subsidizing fatherless-ness, and the funding of programs and pensions via unions and it’s city/state employes.
Larry elder is not on 790 any-longer. To get his shows one MUST currently go here: http://www.larryelder.com/ One can sign up as an Elderado and get his podcasts on iTunes.
➳ (A tip for Elderodoes): My Larry Elder podcasts stopped downloading recently in iTunes. So the first thing I did was I copied my past episodes into a seperate file (the copying and relocating took a while). Then I went into iTunes and deleted the Larry Elder podcast[s]. I then went to larryelder.com, got into my account, and refreshed the whole show podcasts for iTunes. I am now getting the new episodes.
Don’t forget about Larry’s blog: http://www.elderstatement.com/
A young man called into the show that same day. Larry Elder kept him on for a long time, but I truncated the call to reflect the main [muddled] thinking of the caller’s reasoning:
The above is dissected a bit by The Daily Surge as well as the video of the exchange on CNN:
Wall Street Journal editorial writer Jason Riley said, “No matter how much racism you think remains in this county, the policies promoted by this administration are much more harmful to the prospects of blacks in America than racism.”
Riley was reacting to comments Eric Holder made Friday about his and Obama’s political opposition. “There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus,” Holder said.
Riley hammered Holder’s illogical comments by pointing out that it is the Obama administration’s “opposition to school choice, which helps black kids get out of failing schools and their support for minimum wage laws that price blacks out of the labor force, that are much more harmful than any residual racism in America.”
“Eric Holder does not want to have a serious conversation about race in America,” Riley continued, “nor does President Obama.”
“This is the agenda that the black left pushes, that racism is an all-purpose explanation for what ails black America,” Riley said.
Riley goes on to define the exact reasoning behind Holder’s comments saying Eric Holder is “making these comments for political reasons.”
Attorney General Eric Holder was unable to explain to Congress why President Barack Obama was within his constitutional limits when he issued an executive order to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate. The nation’s top law enforcement officer said he hasn’t looked at the analysis in “some time” and thus was unsure of where along the constitutional spectrum the order is permitted.
The surprising admission came after Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) grilled Holder for several minutes on the constitutional limits of executive orders and the executive branch during a Senate hearing on Wednesday.
“I’ll be honest with you, I have not seen — I don’t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I’m not sure where along the spectrum that would come,” Holder replied after Lee pressed him about the employer mandate delay.
Lee came prepared, prefacing his question with an explanation of the standard legal test for executive orders….
From a friend on Twitter:
- Bill Cunningham makes a drunk Alec Baldwin seem civilized.
The above UPDATE is with thanks to GayPatriot and Bruce’s Twitter page. Are people exaggerating the similarities? The only difference is the responsibility level… Nixon showed he was a man. Obama? Not so much.
The above audio is Hugh reading from the following article in the New Yorker Magazine:
Washington Blog does a bang-up job in showing how many liberals are saying that Obama’s “buck stops here” makes his admin waaayy worse than Nixon’s:
I will bullet point Jonathan Turley’s points that you can read his expanded thoughts on for yourself:
- Warrantless surveillance
- Unilateral military action
- Kill lists
- Attacking whistle-blowers
