#TheRevolutionWillBeLiveStreamed: Flynn/LaHood "Candidate Forum," on YouTube, at 7 PM Eastern
— Ace

Andrew Breitbart's Wartime Consiglierte goes up against Establishment/US Chamber of Commerce/Main Street Partnership scion and Boehner Water Carrier Darin LaHood.

Watch (not just listen) below.

If the channel gets stuck, it might also be available here.

Also, it's the top story at Breitbart.



Update: I'm told that Mike will be appearing on Mark "The Great One" Levin's show at 8:30, or thereabouts. You can listen live here.

1 All three candidates look highly suspicious. Is there a fourth option?

2 All three candidates look highly suspicious. --- You should not judge a candidate on how the look. Real conservatives do not do that.

3 Real conservatives do not do that. ------ Go to hell, jerk.

4 at 7 PM Eastern

When people in Peoria with jobs and/or families are driving home or making/eating dinner or some other useful thing that is not streaming politics.


So I assume LaHood chose the time?

11 Some critics alleged a reputation for pork barrel spending, including in support of campaign contributors. The Washington Post reported that of the $60 million in earmarks LaHood secured for his district in 2008, $9 million went to campaign donors. http://tinyurl.com/oswk84a That's only 15% diverted for graft. B y Washington standards, Darin's daddy was off his game.

17 Darrin LaHood is all about the American Conservative Union, ethics the future.

And it all will mean nothing when he goes to Washington.

Have we been fooled by this before?

20 Wait, LaHood opposed Obamacare.

He voted to back a motion to repeal in the Illinois State Senate.

And this will all change when he goes to Washington.

A clear vision, a leader.

Shure.

29 I see one again that Gabe is operating under the assumption that the Constitution says whatever the Supreme Court says it says, and that there are no other Constitutional actors who can expound on it. This is judicial supremacy. This is not judicial review. This is accepted as truth - but it should not be.

35 Question to LaHood: why did you not agree to one-on-one debate with Flynn?

Posted by: OregonMuse at June 29, 2015 02:12 PM (AWijS)

36 It's pretty clear that LaHood isn't comfortable with moving beyond talking points.  OTOH, Flynn comes across as wonkish. 

I think he should punch LaHood.

49 To answer Gabe's question about how I would feel if Obama didn't follow Citizens United - well I think he could bring a case against the next litigant and he'd probably lose. Which I'm sure Ted Cruz thinks to. But you definitely lose by acquiesing. And furthering the wrongly held belief that the Supreme Court is the supreme decider of what the Constitution means is not going to help us.

53 Flynn has the virtue of being idealistic, but LaHood has the virtue of being a known entity. A corrupt one, but a known entity. I want to believe in Flynn, but after seeing "reformers" going back to the Gingrich era get turned into DC go-along-get-along toadstools, I have my doubts.

Posted by: Tilikum Killer Assault Whale Armed and Ready for Anna at June 29, 2015 07:11 PM (8marX)





from two threads down


The SCOTUS ruling is an old one that they had already shot down the AZ law. AZ and KS tried to reword the law to provide a different wording. What they had was State forms that required proof, the Supremes had ruled that when using the Fed forms that required the "illegal" to swear under the penalty of perjury that they were a citizen they could not make them provide proof. Another court ruled that they could not get around this by suing a State form for federal elections. SCOTUS did not take the appeal which means the ruling stands based on not being able to even get 4 judges to agree to take the case.


That means Kennedy AND Roberts sold us out.

89 It's not here on the blog, but the Supreme Court just ended America officially.  They have ruled that no state can ask for ID when voting.

So now, unless Republicans play the same games of signing up dead people, busing homeless from polling place to polling place, buying votes, voting early and often, etc. then there won't be any more in Washington.

Elections are officially part of the THEATER of "Democracy" now.  Dark times.

That is also incorrect.  They would not take the case at all and let an appellate court ruling stand that said you can not use a State Registration form for registering that required PROOF of citizenship.  SCOTUS had already ruled on this previously over a year ago. AZ and KS were trying to get around that ruling.

But it still had nothing to do with ID.  It had to do with PROOF of citizenship.  The federal form for registration for federal elections only requires the potential voter to swear under penalty of perjury that they are a citizen.  It requires no proof or documentation.  And you can not get around that by using a State form that does require proof.



I'll leave it to you to figure out where that lax crap came from since the Constitution thinks the States are in charge of how the citizens in the State vote.

There have been numerous cases brought by Holder to try and block voter ID laws.  He has lost every time.  The State can require you to show an ID when registering, and even a picture ID if it meets the standards.  It just can not require you to provide birth certificates etc. It is a totally different issue.

Posted by: Boss Moss at June 29, 2015 02:50 PM (CdIQH)

208

Just as an FYI, from what I've seen of US election integrity (voter registration, primarily) procedures and standards, our federal elections wouldn't pass muster with international/UN norms for same.   (some states are not too bad, but this citizenship-sans-proof thing is a disqualifier)

 

And, of course, the US, via the UN and directly, for years has provided assistance and oversight to countries, for example, emerging from civil wars, with no previous history of elected government, to meet these international norms.  Part of the formula that underlies the blessing of "free and fair" for such elections from the US, UN, and major developed countries.  I've participated in such activities in countries emerging from long civil wars.

 

So there's that.  The US in its wisdom refuses to adopt standards it considers the norm in election integrity.  Perfect, really.

Vic - so, as a practical matter, wouldn't state-requirements in effect trump this stupid federal restriction, as voters show up to vote on all matters (state, local, federal) at one time and place, usually?

 

I mean, you're handed one ballot, or whatever, with all these things on it.  Unless there are two ballots, polling places, or election times, then it's a unitary process.  So a state with reasonable (i.e., citizenship-proof required) registration standards would, in effect, be vetting their voters for citizenship.

244 There have been numerous cases brought by Holder to try and block voter ID laws. He has lost every time. The State can require you to show an ID when registering, and even a picture ID if it meets the standards. It just can not require you to provide birth certificates etc. It is a totally different issue. Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at June 29, 2015 07:45 PM (GpgJl) I consider birth certificates a form of ID, but I think I get your objection. Fair enough.

294 Really hard to tell if the general public will just go with name recognition.  Even if Flynn's name was Breitbart, that name is recognized by the blog community, but so many are LIVs. 

Flynn's strong points to me are pointing out LaHood's connection to the old machine versus his connection to taking down ACORN, and work against the establishment.  With the Breitbart background, it seemed clear he would use media to get his/our message heard.

He made clear that DC doesn't listen to we the people, while LaHood went to DC for the big money.  LaHood rattled off his endorsements, and Flynn should use that against him, as the establishment choice.

Turnout will be key ... I'd guess those angry and wanting change would be more motivated.  That should bode well for Flynn.  Hope so.

299 Flynn has so obviously thought about ideas and policy a ton more than the others. He showed that clearly. However, both he and LaHood both acted like he is behind a decent amount still. I liked the way Flynn dinged him on the sugar subsidy, and on being the party man. The line about having a debate probably was going to too big a bite, since anyone that was watching it with an open mind obviously thought it was worthwhile time investment. That's kinda an awkward thing to get to at the end of that forum. The party is trying to run the clock out. The LaHood name is a lot to overcome in a short timeframe, when people are just waking up to the election now. LaHood's gambit is that people aren't paying attention, he can just spout off the talking points and wait it out. Being basically the district that brought us Bob Michel and his dad, he might be right. Darin does not display the same level of natural political ability as either of them did, though. Empty suit...I see the appeal for Boehner. I think Reints is in there of his own volition, but if you think there is any ulterior motive to it, I guarantee it is to obscure LaHood's woodenness. It has nothing to do with dividing the anti-establishment vote, because Reints isn't going to get any of it. LaHood's stylistic weakness doesn't look so bad when you've got Reints speaking right before or after him.

387 Rusty Nail (214): "name one state that has separate state and federal election ballots on election day". Virginia does. State elections (governor and both houses of the legislature) are in odd-numbered years, so it's not even the same election day. New Jersey, New York City, and Los Angeles also elect their chief executives in odd-numbered years, and (I think) also their legislators/city-councilmen. So two medium-sized states and the two largest cities in the U.S. have separate state/city and federal elections and (obviously) ballots.

I remember this because these four elections taken together often provide a convenient bell-wether indicator, giving a strong hint of what's likely to happen in the rest of the nation in the much bigger election a year later.

Who knows how many people even know this is not Ray LaHood running. Lower info voters might just see "LaHood" and pull the lever without thinking about it because, in their minds, they've always sent a LaHood to Congress.

422 Al Sharpton has never pastored a church, as far as I know. even thug he was ordained. Jesse Jackson hasn't been a pastor of a church for decades They are race hustlers and shakedown artists. Yes, pastors can be bad people.

423 And what about a preacher like Jeremiah Wright? Could you see someone like him burning down his own church?

If he was distracted by some strange and didn't notice his crack pipe lightin' up the curtains, sure.  He ain't no consiglierte, that's for sure.

Not saying that's whats happened... just a possiblity.

433 Why would pastors burn their own churches? ==== we had one go up just a couple days ago. it hasn't been proveen but.... ....it was a former church, semi historical, and they just got the OK to sell and the sale was blocked by history nuts the day before it burned up. hunh. bad luck. watcha gonna do

438 The chapel I was married in burned to the ground a few years ago. Mrs Weasel and I happened by as it was still smoldering and I asked the Fire Marshall if it meant our marriage was no longer valid. He referred me to a higher authority.

439 I met a "pastor"  that I was less than impressed by.  To say the least.

My takeaway was  that that word means basically  nothing.

Of course that was just one guy.

455 re voter id is the ruling the states cannot ask at registration? what about the polling place? those are typically run by parties, not the states.

458 "Well it must be racist to be a citizen of country to have to legally vote in it" It's racist to have to vote... If only there was a racially aware party that would just intuitive supply the marked ballots...

459 They declined to hear a case from a lower court. That makes case law just as powerfully as hearing the case. Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at June 29, 2015 07:38 PM (Zu3d9) Sounds like the answer is for for AZ and KS to simply carry on demanding proof of citizenship to register voters. And if any person or entity tries to stop them, call out the National Guard.

466 No, quite honestly. Jeremiah is a person whose views I utterly deplore but if people are burning down their own churches they're not ministers of the Gospel. I assume he thinks he is. If you've been at a place long enough you grow to love it. Even if some of the people there may not be the most pleasant souls you still have a connection to the place and its history Posted by: FenelonSpoke at June 29, 2015 09:29 PM (OSs/l) No true Scotsman, Fen.

469 So when SCOTUS actually rules for the people against the EPA, Josh Earnest says they'll blow that ruling off. But for Homo "marriage" and Obamacare, it's the immutable law of the land and final. Heads we win, tails you lose. Also known as "tyranny."
