The Democracy Initiative:
a Coup in Plain Sight

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 1/20/2013 5:50:59 AM

Matthew Continetti, one of my favorite writers, wrote an eye opener last week, "´A Conspiracy so Immense´: ideological commitment and the timidity of pragmatic politics", too late for me to discuss in my column. It is one of the most important stories you´ll ever read anywhere and shows how far behind conservatives are in the fight against "progressive " ideologues. He picks up on a report by Andy Kroll in Mother Jones about a coordinated effort by about 36 different interest groups with reported revenues of no less than $1.69 billion

The Left is passionately committed to the overthrow of the US Constitution. The Right is civil. Guess who has the advantage?

Almost impossible to do, Clarice has managed to outdo herself on this article.

How long must those who understand what Postmodernism is shout into the wind that it is this very thing that is thrashing America into submission?

Postmodernists like Mr. Obama are deconstructionists; they tear down what we have always held sacred and traditional in order to, well, "fundamentally remake America", which he has done with a lot of help from wealthy socialists with the same goals in mind --- and all in the name of "fairness".

"Fairness" to the Left, means tearing down all individuality, all self-sufficiency, all innovation by individuals in order to to make all Americans equally mediocre and equally miserable. One does that by destroying everything that made America properous, free and great.

I´ve lost track of how often I have warned people against ignoring Postmodernism. Clarice Feldman is clearly on to what is really killing the country. We ignore this cultural shift at the very peril we find ourselves immersed in at this moment.

As for what can be done about it, where is the GOP? Where is the Tea Party? It seems the NRA, evangelical Christianity and Israel are the only friends America has right now.

OPEN LETTER TO THE GOP: How long will you wring your hands and do nothing about the trouncing we took? Were you not shocked enough by how far we have already fallen? What are you waiting for? A military or IRS coup?

REMINDER TO GOP: So far, all of Obama´s promises have come to pass. The only ones left include, "Forming a civilian police force with the force and power of the military."

How long do you wait?

Please make this a must read. I saw Continetti´s article and immediately put it out of my mind because it is almost too scary to contemplate what all this money and talent on the side of our enemies means for America. Is there nobody in public life who will lead the resistance? Thanks to Clarice for putting it in front of our faces.

This is scary but we have to recognize that the current situation represents the end game in a century long effort to deconstruct the form of government the founders gave us - our constitutional republic.

The whole point of the constitution is to preserve individual liberty by limiting the scope of government. Almost no Americans today understand that the federal government has no legitimate authority outside of the areas designated to it by the constitution - the "enumerated powers."

The whole purpose of the progressive agenda is to end all meaningful constitutional limits on government power. In fact, as interpreted by liberals the meaning of "progressive" is "progressing past the outdated and now absurd constitution."

We need to recognize that we are down to the point of no return in the fight to preserve liberty. If we loose the next couple of years it will be lost for generations, probably forever.

Must read.

God and Godly values have been removed from our culture. When people substitute Godly values with secular values they, in essence, have no values, no standards, no morality; they can´t see evil or a lie or bad motives or unintended consequences and are easily manipulated by the media and politicians that have their own interests at heart (which is why the media and most politicians hate religion).
Half of this nation is beholden to the Democrat Party (who controls the government) and their monthly government pay check has become more important than their personal liberty and freedom. Half of the people of this nation cannot think for themselves, cannot support themselves and could not survive without the government. So how can they make "right" choices, know what is good and evil or give back, contribute to society, be compassionate or have any empathy? They have sold their soul to the government and they like it.
I remember when Reagan was president and how jubilant our nation was. Now it´s just gloom and doom with no hope of recovery.
The hope of this nation lies within the people and the people have been bought and paid for by Marxist, secular, liberal, progressives.
Our only hope is that when America is destroyed (like old Israel in the O.T.) we look up to God for our sustenance and deliverance; embrace Godly values so we can recognize good and evil, right and wrong and choose to do what is right.
God is letting us fall so we will look up and be purged of the evil living with us. Or it may be the end approaching, the real end of time; the return of God dealing with Israel and the 70th week of Daniel´s prophecy.

One of the pieces of advice from the NRA in this article is to "clean house" when your leadership becomes too accepting and accommodating with the opposition. Truer words were never spoken. The Republican leadership has become so inept and so scared of offending anyone that it simply must go. They are caving in on every major Obama initiative...debt ceiling, spending, immigration, etc. Why the heck are they even Republicans?

Clean house. We need people who will fight fearlessly for our principles.

All these leftwing sucks, the MSM and Press, attend weekly cocktail parties where they schmooze with one another, ripping Republicans, conservatives, NRA members and mock the rest of redneck America. Obama has one of these type gatherings on Wednesday evenings, when he´s not on vacation somewhere. The Press and Media will not say or report anything that might jeopardize them and their spouce´s invitations to these affairs. It would be sweet if regular photos be posted of the attendees, in order to see which Press and Media members have sold out.

# 3 , deconstructionist is one even a savvy reader won´t find , but to get to the point . The old guard of the GOPhers , the liberal lite and DC elitists , are going to die out and be replaced by the likes of Cruz and Rubio , the Tea Party of us regular folk . All is not lost , and once the panhandlers and those of ´ progressive ´ leanings find their luxurious way of American life is in serious jeopardy , their tune will change rapidly . Remember that . Zero and his ideology will become too obvious for even the blinder guilded media to ignore .

I agrr. And, I have been saying it is even more in plain sight since the election. Look at it as a whole. Top Generaks, Admirals, demasculnization of the military. Look what happened in Algeria this week. The progressives are handling the civil part, Obama is handling the governmental side. Check the cabinet that has left, and whom are the chosen replacements. You thought you didn´t like what was. You have yet to see, what is to come.

We are being taken in a political coup, our country is being stolen, right in front of our lying eyes. We put our heads in the sand, because it is too surreal to believe.

Wake up. It is as ominous as it sounds. And as real as your denial. Do something, before there is no turning back. We are losing, and this is no joke.

How many more accidents and "suicides" before someone does something? Wake up!

Each time I despair, I try to remember how depressed I was when Bill Clinton defeated good George H.W. Bush. The media was enchanted with Clinton and remained so, even through the impeachment. I know it´s a lot of years later, but there are similarities to the Clinton administration. Many voters adored Clinton, no matter his transgressions. Obama cannot run again, as Clinton could not. We can´t just wait for Obama to self-immolate. That´s not a strategy. We have to suck up our depression, find some good people to run across the country, SUPPORT them, and refrain from ruling out the ones who want to top a ticket before they have a chance to show us who they are.

It may be too late. Many believe so. But, if we all begin to accept that we are doomed, then what´s the use of anything at all? I´d rather put together a plan, or lots of plans.

This is one of the most chilling things I have read in awhile. There are so few of us who see what is happening and too few are even aware or care. The only thing missing from that laundry list of subservive organizations was the name Soros. He is the originator of the destruction that continues to this day. Even when he leaves this earth he still has his children to carry on his malevolent goals. It is beyond frustrating that these evil people have completely infiltrated every single area of our society. We have a huge hill to climb to defeat them.

FTA: "This is a coup. And we´ve relied on cowards, charlatans, or know-nothings on "our" side to help push back against it"

Finally, someone came right out and said it. This article should be sent to every member of the Republican Party. This is exactly why conservatives are so upset right now. There is an air of despair hanging over folks who know in their gut that there is something very dangerous brewing in Washington today. it is apparent that we have no one on our side up for the challenge of confronting those who are hell bent on tyranny.

Federalism. It begins not in DC but in the states. Bypass the handouts from Washington and the chains are broken. Let´s see one or two Repub governors do it, it might start a trend - imagine keeping the feds out of our schools, out of our traffic laws, out of our drug laws, out of our health care, etc., etc.

The coup began with FDR. He too had the media on his side. Reporting lies with no counter balance.

We could put a stop to this if the US Supreme Court made Voter I.D. established law.

Be helpful too if we stopped bashing republicans at every turn. It only aids and abets enemies of our constitution.

Wake up.

The only thing that gives me hope for the future of this country is the response, over the last month, to the would be gun grabbers. In essence, we have our own "civilian security force, as well funded as the military", though we are funding it ourselves.

From one of the commenters at the site:

"Robert, WE are not the problem. the issue is we have NO ONE in positions of power or influence who are fighting for US or the country. When the GOP joined the Damnocrats in ridculing the Tea Party, I saw who their true alelgiance was to. Damn them all to Hell"

Yes, indeed. Take note Jonah, Anne, and all the other "conservative" pundits out there who harangued those of us who voiced our objections to some of the things the RNC was doing. Your true colors were revealed.

This has gone way too far to simply wish away. One only needs to read the 1940´s Soviet/Communist plan to takeover America to know where we are going. They have accomplished the majority of their goals and are now even in control of the federal government! Patriots are desperately in need of a leader. The current crop of Republicans have a couple of prospects but the majority IMO are not up to the task. We need a Patton and instead we have Patent Leather.

Yes, conseratives need a strong leader to come forth and begin to fight back. Remember, it was just a handful of men that organized the revolt against King George. Now is the time for SOMEONE to step forward and organize a revolt against King Obama. That´s going to be the only was that this country can sustain it´s original framework. If we are allowed to continue on the current path, then the country we knew and loved will be confined to the asheap of history. We will become just as to old Soviet Union. A country of high living few and a very large majoirty of very poor. That´s really all they want. Complete control.

I received a call from a woman representing the Sierra Club asking me to support "filibuster reform." She explained, the evil "Right" is standing in the way of legislation that was too important for our survival. She offered to connect me then and there with my Senator´s office. She was calling from a phone bank. You could hear the buzz of other people in the background, presumably making similar calls.
This attempt to modify the playing field is real and ongoing as we speak. It is not just some theoretical, impotent discussion. I suspect that the marketing strategy of directly connecting you to your Senator is rather effective.

#28, this is America. Individualists don´t need a leader to know what has to be done.
But a lot of you individualists need to wake up and start doing - you are in a war, have been in a war for decades, and still don´t seem able to get your minds around that little fact. You don´t ´hope´ the supreme court ´does something´, you don´t ´wish´ the GOP would do something, and you don´t stand around with your thumbs in your pockets. The evidence is there. Your states better start moving to eradicate every libtard or you´re going to lose the war. It´s that simple. And they count on deliberately miss-educated Americans being confused about legal and political issues - they count on you following whatever laws they foist on you regardless if they are within constitutional boundaries (Most all aren´t).
For many decades I´ve heard, cross this line and I´ll get really mad; they cross it; well, you´ll make me really, really mad if you cross THIS line; they inch forward and cross it; OK THIS TIME I really, really, really mean it. And when I would point it out, I´d be called crazy or an extremest. Meanwhile the libtards/progrtards have out-maneuvered Americans to the point where the Americans let their children be educated and entertained by their enemies, their enemies do as they please and the schmucks sit on their behinds and rationalize it away as being lawful - cause one of their enemies in a judge suit told them so.
Plain sight, indeed!

These government thugs can only gather this information if we give it to them voluntarily. New gun purchases will move to the black market. All existing "illegal" weapons and magazines will go into underground storage. When the new nazis come door to door to confiscate, they will not find anything. Any American who values his freedom will automatically become a criminal in their eyes but a patriot in reality. If we peacefully give the dictators their way, we deserve what comes afterwards.

Look at the way people like Newt, Sarah, Michelle and their families have been treated, not infrequently by members of their own party, or indeed this forum, and you wonder why we suffer a dearth of leadership talent in the party. The way the Romney campaign went after their opponents in the last election was enough to keep anyone who cherishes his family from coming forward. Until we heap immediate rebuke on those who trade in that sort of practice, we will not see good and capable people in public office.

Do not think Obama`s reign of terror will be over in 4 years. He has no intention of leaving the WH in 2017. Moochelle is being groomed as the first woman president of the U.S. The `process` for a Moochelle Obama presidency has already begun. She is unveiling her `new look` today, sporting a much younger hairstyle, trying to look like she is still in her 30`s. You will hear her become ever more political as the month`s pass Meanwhile, Obama sets his sights on defeating the GOP House in 2014.

As for Hillary, forget her, she`s history.

Our flexible puppet president, still effortlessly concealing his mostly mysterious, murky past -- what with our nation’s roll-over-and-play-dead media -- is well on his way to fundamentally transforming what I used to hold dear. These days I hold it in lower regard. At least some regrettably slow-learning Americans are beginning to notice what is happening, and not for the better, to their lives; at least that’s some consolation.

In no way can I accept the claim that he won both his election and reelection ‘fair and square.’ I just can’t buy that. Never have. Never will. From childhood, I was taught to always respect the office of the president, no matter who occupied it. I have, but with two exceptions. This one and the one who disgracefully perhaps mistook ‘oval’ for something else. Yeah, maybe that was it.

What these progressive/socialist groups united to do is to pursue the Marxist/Communist agenda. This is done through Class Struggle. In the US they created a lumpenproletariat consisting of blacks and Mexicans on welfare and Food Stamps that will vote and vote for them. They control the means of production trough redistribution of wealth to those that have not earned it. Obama is part of the same old Communist plot.

The worst enemy of these Marxists is Christianity because it stands for individual Free Will. The Sierra Club, Soros and allies are a grave danger which no one is confronting.

Mitt Romney was a grave danger to the Communist/Progressives because he ran a campaign based on Individual Freedom. He was a wonderful candidate and a is a good man.

This ideological war started long before Karl Marx, with the Freemasons of the French Revolution.

One inspirational person cannot do anything right now. Those in the coup will blow him/her away. Literally. Look around. They do it every day. Brave leaders who want to change things for the better are afraid for their life. Their very life. Or, even worse, the lives of their family. Pure evil, fear and blackmail going on now. Going on in the House and Senate and all Federal positions. Most of the media is also blackmailed.

I saw Romney back down from running for President the minute his wife´s plane had to do an abortive landing before reaching her destination. Remember that? But the msm stopped reporting it instantly. No more mention. The picture that came out in those few short hours was one of her, finally at her destination, running to him with her mouth open, deep fear on her face and her arms reaching out for him. His body language and face was that of a deer in the headlights, as he opened his arms to protect her. At that moment,I believe he gave up, to save her.

Saving the nation at the Federal level is now impossible. All good people are compromised and scared. It is going to take our Federalism to overthrow this coup that is in place. And yes, it is a coup. State Governors and Legislatures will be our saving grace. In the words of Nancy Reagan, States must *just say no* to present federal intervention, wean their people off the dole, and inspire pride in being a strong State.

The answer is not to cower, but to rise up and answer it with something even more daunting. It is time for the pro-life, pro-defense, pro-responsibility, pro-liberty, pro-equality, pro-market and pro-family organizations to join forces, independant of the Republican Party. We need to fight in every way that is legally possible, at every strata of our society. Otherwise the nation will fall to the progressives, and be consigned to the ash heap of history.

The left smells blood in the water, and they think this is their chance to turn the US into a de facto single party socialist republic. They will succeed if they are not answered with even greater ferocity, with every means possible and legal.

The link for “A conspiracy so immense”: ideological commitment and the timidity of pragmatic politics is http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=46614

An observation I would like to make is how many of these organizations receive government funding or union dues. We are subsidizing the vary organizations that are working to destroy our country.

The Progressives got their start when Theodore Roosevelt tried to unseat Taft for re-election. The Bull Mooose party had a very socialist platform. Today´s Progressives are much more extreme.

There is no "Let George Do it" Like the old Saw. There is no leader. We have to do it oursleves. Forget the Repubs ,we have to do it ourselves. I think the ability to fight back is drummed out of us by a liberal/left soaked agenda, threats and bills, and attacks.
As far as the poster saying that the next thing is Obaa´s new army...Well, One time there was a report that the entire national guard of Guam was brought to the USA´s mainland for "manuevers". It was described as the largest flight of troops in peacetime...Figure it out as it was never mentioned again.

While I agree with Jeff on the attempted coup and the failure of conservatives and the Republican party to effectively communicate what is going on and fight back against it, there are ways to counter this sort of thing..

Clarice, what most conservatives do not realize is we have in essence elected Adolph Hitler and the majority of his political leaders and judges and the entire Japanese government WHILE fighting WWII. And now we´re surprised when the Japanese bomb us and the Germans put any non-Arian in a concentration camp? When you elect the Karl Marx model, you get the Karl Marx government and there ain´t no turning back until the next election. That´s why there is no un-failure nor possibility of success of the Republican party while Obama is president. They are irrelevant and that mostly by their own choice. There is no way to fight back since the voters (and the GOP) has made anything but waiting until 2016 a fairy tale and fantasy dream. The tiring and constant, "We better do something until it´s too late," or my personal fave, "Wake up people before we lose the nation," is exactly like Robert Ballard warning, "If we don´t un-hit that iceberg, the Titanic will sink," while we watch his documentary on the giant rusting vessel sitting on the bottom of the ocean. We conservatives and at very rare times some Republicans are merely warning people that something must be done to prevent the ship from sinking between the iceberg and the bottom of the Atlantic. Until 2016, it cannot be "un-sunk."

Wonderful article. Definitely a must read. One thing we can work on is the photo ID for voters. We have all kinds of them. Let´s figure a way to make them work for elections. This last election proved beyond anything that at least a million votes were cooked to what was needed. We need to stand up to them and say, "Get a voter´s ID or don´t vote." If they had to use them to cash their welfare checks, they´d all have them. This is not the whole propblem but it´ll keep folks stirred up until something else comes along. As for the cost of an "ID" no one ever said freedom was free. Ask any trooper who left a part in some distant desert. He´ll tell you real quick. Let´s do it!!

I hate to say it, but this is not new. For the better part of my life, (much more than a couple of decades,) I have written, given lectures, discussed and hollered about the coup (conspiracy) to make the US a communist state.

"Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws." Amschel Rothschild.

Sound familiar??? Our Income Tax barely covers the INTEREST on what the FED has "loaned(?)" US.

We are on the verge of a great upheaval. My friends, my family, and my employees have sidelined me for years about what I have seen coming. Now, they are singing Kumbaya to keep their heads from exploding.

I do believe that Soros is involved, but there is no way in my mind that there is not a much, much greater force pushing this pipsqueak up front and to the left.

Study the money scheme and the banking systems, a la the Fed, and follow that trail and it leads to the election of 2012 and beyond. Read it. Study it. Understand it.

Yes, we are at war! And yes, be very afraid.

Keep your powder dry! Our liberties are at stake. Remember, there are millions of Patriots who are working to rescue this country.

#53 is correct, this is not new... and doubt if most LDotters didn´t know this already... perhaps not the numbers and details...

[But as a Christian, we know this evil started in Heaven when Satan was kicked out... he too wanted to be a/the god... ]

As Conservatives, what do we do now...

1. Pray
2. Home-school your children or grandbabies or send to most Conservative, classical Christian school... where American History is taught
3. Study States´ Rights... Get involved in your "red" [or move?] state commitment for voter id, etc... remember 20+ states have not set up Obamacare exchanges... cannot afford to!

And remember, the Tea Party Patriots know this could be a 30-year battle... [They acknowledged this at the first meeting I attended at the Hyatt in Irvine about two and a half years ago...]
Do not despair!

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.

But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures.
