The next debate will be even worse.

Holt didn't want the same treatment that Matt Lauer got.

//At tonight’s debate, Donald Trump faced off not just against Hillary Clinton, but against moderator Lester Holt.

The game of two-on-one saw Holt ask no questions about:

Hillary’s emails
The Clinton Foundation
While ignoring these issues, Holt grilled Trump on stop-and-frisk, the birther story, his comments about women, his many bankruptcies, why he hasn’t released his tax returns — and a host of other issues the media sees as unfriendly to the Republican candidate.

Holt also repeatedly attempted to “fact check” on some of Trump’s positions, such as his claim to have opposed the Iraq War from the beginning. Holt interrupted Trump several times to interject, but rarely succeeded (and may have come across as weak and impotent).//

Put on your surprised faces.

Funny how I was reading this as a report on a lone wolf isolated psycho with no connection to anything in particular...

How is this not an unconstitutional restriction on the First Amendment right of Free Speech/Free Press?

While the Left distracts everyone with hysteria about Trump's "fascism", it sets about "liquidating" the First Amendment.

How did this get passed and signed without warning cries about incipient "fascism"?

Notice also how the rhetoric of "anti-discrimination" gets used to trump the express Constitutional language of the First Amendment that mandates that there be "no law" that restricts the right of the press.

Obviously, the age of actors is a minor issue, but the principle that "discrimination" concerns can be used to restrict any speech is a big deal.

Also, the concern is idiotic. Most people who read IMDB are not hiring actors and the people who do hire actors have other resources to find out this information.  Also, there is a law already in place that prohibits age discrimination.

//“On behalf of everyone in the industry who has struggled with age discrimination, whose opportunities to showcase their talent may have been blocked, I want to thank Gov. Brown and the bill’s author, Assemblymember Ian Calderon," says SAG-AFTRA’s Gabrielle Carteris.
California Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday signed legislation that requires certain entertainment sites, such as IMDb, to remove – or not post in the first place – an actor’s age or birthday upon request.

The law, which becomes effective January 1, applies to entertainment database sites that allow paid subscribers to post resumes, headshots or other information for prospective employers. Only a paying subscriber can make a removal or non-publication request. Although the legislation may be most critical for actors, it applies to all entertainment job categories.//

If you want to know who your elites are, find out about whom you may not know their ages.

The IRS and the FBI have been weaponized as part of the leftist political machine.

Why else would the FBI be playing the game of making Friday Night Document Dumps like a hack politician accused of corruption?

Maybe to protect Hillary from the fact that everyone knew what she was doing?

Athletes have a right to use their sport to promote their personal opinions...

....except when they don't.

Even if they aren't using their employer's forum to communicate their position.

And they definitely don't if if it doesn't conform with the fever-swamp left's opinion.

So, basically, people have a right to endorse the fever-swamp left.

When did America become Stalinist Russia?

...but I think that Goldman actually does believe in "unmerited grace."

What is the election of Israel, after all, as God's chosen except unmerited grace?

//What is the difference between Christianity and Judaism? It isn’t love versus law, or works versus faith; those are canards. It isn’t Incarnation as such; my late teacher Michael Wyschogrod showed that Incarnation is a Jewish idea, specifically that God’s presence (Shekhinah) dwells in the flesh and blood of the people Israel (Christians, he quipped, concentrate that into one single Jew). It isn’t even the different persons of God in the Trinity. Judaism teaches different attributes of God, particularly the Attribute of Justice and the Attribute of Mercy, although we do not of course regard them as different “persons.”

The great gulf fixed between Jews and Christians is the notion of unmerited grace.  Unmerited grace is meaningless in the Jewish context. It isn’t that YHWH is a more demanding deity than Jesus of Nazareth. Jews are expected to be God’s partners, and Imitatio Dei for Jews means participating in the continuing work of creation. We do not wait for the Kingdom of Heaven; we build heaven into the minutia of daily life. Performance of the mitzvoth (commandments) is not a means to accumulate sufficient points to win a place in heaven; it is the construction of heaven on earth. The Sabbath is a foretaste of the World to Come, a portion of eternity separated from quotidian time.//

Ginning up the Black Vote.

Why are there riots about a black cop shooting a black man in a city with a black police chief?


Election-year voter turnout, more likely.

70% of Charlotte protesters from out of state.

Love that academic freedom.

To summarize what we've learned about Progressives:

//Related, from Judge Danny Boggs:
All of MY SIDE’s references and statements are to be taken in the coolest, hip-ironic, culturally aware, benign-metaphorical way possible (see Watts v. United States, and [granting my side the full benefit of the] the conflicting interpretive modes the various judges/justices on the Supreme Court and the Court[s] of Appeals [have approved]),


All of YOUR SIDE’s references and statements are to be taken in the most mindlessly literal, threatening way possible.

That should work for almost all of our commentators, of whatever persuasion.

Also, any charge against MY SIDE requires exquisite legally admissible proof of its accuracy,


Any charge against YOUR SIDE must be true if it was asserted by anyone, anywhere.

People on MY SIDE are responsible only for what they said personally, in full-quotation context.


People on YOUR SIDE are responsible for the inferred implications of anything said by anyone who ever held any idea vaguely similar to what your people think.

The best part of the Obama years has been all the racial healing.

Someone should teach these Black Lives Matter rioters that All Lives Matter.

The best part of the Obama years has been all the racial healing.

So, are we to understand that Hillary and Black Lives Matter blames all white people every time a black person is shot by a white police officer?

Because that kind of racism is what this sounds like:

//Hillary Clinton speaks to Steve Harvey on his morning radio program about "speaking directly to white people" about racism.

From Tuesday's show:

HILLARY CLINTON: Maybe I can, by speaking directly to white people, say, 'Look, this is not who we are.' We have to do everything possible to improve policing, to go right at implicit bias. There are good, honorable, cool-headed police officers. We've seen them in action in New York in the last, you know, 48 hours because of the terrorist attacks. We can do better. We have got to rein in what is absolutely inexplicable and we have got to have law enforcement respect communities and communities respect law enforcement because they have to work together.//

"We" "white people" are not about bad police shootings.

"We" never have been.
