“We believe in freedom and freedom of expression and we don’t want to be constrained and controlled, so it makes it even harder to be Speaker over a Republican majority because a lot of times Democrats are willing to compromise their principles just to go along with the team,” Loudermilk said. “It’s harder to do that on the Republican side, because we’re ideologically driven.”
Loudermilk said he supports Ryan but needs to know more about Ryan’s conditions before casting his vote.
“I believe I can get to a place where I would support him, if the rules are in place that constrains the power of the Speaker,” Loudermilk said.
During the War of 1812, the Constitution won its enduring nickname “Old Ironsides” after defeating the British warship Guerriére in a furious engagement off the coast of Nova Scotia. Witnesses claimed that the British shots merely bounced off the Constitution‘s sides, as if the ship were made of iron rather than wood. The success of the Constitution against the supposedly invincible Royal Navy provided a tremendous morale boost for the young American republic.
Harding was a progressive Republican politician who advocated full civil rights for African Americans and suffrage for women. He supported the Dyer Anti-lynching Bill in 1920. As a presidential candidate that year, he gained support for his views on women’s suffrage, but faced intense opposition on civil rights for blacks. The 1920s was a period of intense racism in the American South, characterized by frequent lynchings. In fact, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) reported that, in 1920, lynching claimed, on average, the lives of two African Americans every week.
On his brother Jimmy’s drinking habits, Billy said, “Jimmy used to drink liquor. Now he’s running for president he drinks Scotch, and I’ve never trusted a Scotch drinker.” Billy preferred the alcohol choice of his brother’s running mate, Walter Mondale – “I liked him the best of all the ones who came to Plains. He’s from a small town and he’s a beer drinker.”
The Ways and Means chairman addressed his GOP colleagues at a special conference meeting, finally moving off his long-held position that he wants nothing to do with the speakership.
Inside the closed-door meeting, Ryan “did not announce a final decision on the speakership, but he did discuss what’s necessary, in his view, for the next speaker to be successful,” Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said in an email to reporters.
Ryan’s four conditions to take the speakership are:
The GOP moves from an opposition party to a proposition party.
Update House rules so everyone can be a more effective representative.
Unify as a conference now, not after a divisive speaker election.
It takes away the Freedom Caucus’s ability to vote against something
The conservative/tea party wing of the GOP today has made its mark by, as much as anything, being the opposition. It resists any kind of compromise, and when it shakes things up by voting against the GOP establishment and throwing a curveball — as in the case of would-be-Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) — the GOP base eats it up.
Ryan is giving these groups the opportunity to reject him before he even runs — a considerably less sexy set of circumstances for members anxious to stick it to the GOP establishment. They still might reject him, but it won’t carry the drama of a floor vote or even a declared candidacy. Things will play out in the coming days, and Ryan will assess them.
The Washington Post published an item Monday evening to its website with the headline “Biden to launch a presidential campaign.”
Post congressional reporter Paul Kane, whose byline appeared on the article, was quick to tweet out the details. It seems this wasn’t news published before it was ready—just a “shell” story prepared so that the Post could push the button faster in case Biden did announce.
“Earlier tonight, a technical glitch caused publication of a just-in-case/when-we-kno story of VP running for president,” he told his 10,000 followers on Twitter. “It happened when editors were embedding video file. It carries my byline. I regret that it was published accidentally. Deep apologies.”
The Obama administration — in a bid to start tracking personal drones and address safety concerns in advance of a holiday season when the industry projects thousands more will be sold — announced Monday it will require the registration of drone aircraft, even for “consumers and hobbyists.”
The decision is meant in part to address the growing number of reported close calls and incidents that pose safety risks. Pilot sightings of drones have doubled since last year, including sightings near planes and major sporting events.
Federal Aviation Administration chief Michel Huerta said registration will increase pressure on operators to fly responsibly, adding “there will be consequences” when they don’t.
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx stressed that the DOT is “bullish” on technology in the transportation sector, noting drones are helping farmers, entrepreneurs and even the movie industry. But citing the “astounding” growth in the industry and the safety issues, he said: “We’re going to require operators of drones to register their aircraft just like commercial drone operators do currently.”
Newt and Callista Gingrich will be touring Georgia to promote his new book, Duplicity: A Novel, which was released last week.
Therefore, monuments to either Michael King or soldiers of any color who fought against the Confederacy would be a violation of the purpose for which the park was created and exists. The opinions of the park’s current neighbors and opponents are of no bearing in the discussion.
I had assumed it was a typo, as it didn’t have a link to more information about Dr. King’s birth name, nor any explanation. I apologize for my unwarranted assumption.
The act of the General Assembly which created the Stone Mountain Memorial Association specifically states the park, including both the mountain and all adjacent property, is to be maintained and operated as a Confederate memorial (OCGA 12-3-191).
They left out a couple of important words, as the statute calls for Stone Mountain to serve “as a Confederate memorial and public recreational area.” And that last part about a public recreation area arguably opens up Stone Mountain to anything that could reasonably be considered part of a “public recreational area.” I’d even argue that currently, most people think of Stone Mountain first as a recreational area, and second, as containing a Confederate memorial.
Georgia Politics, Campaigns, and Elections
The above video, which comes via Greg Bluestein of the AJC, is a video introduction by Georgia Senator David Perdue, apparently meant to be used to introduce Herman Cain at the Trump Rally in Atlanta. No idea why it wasn’t used, but I don’t recall seeing a large video screen at the Trump rally venue. Perhaps they couldn’t arrange one in time.
English Bulldogs that come into rescue groups usually have suffered from neglect, as their physical issues are many and very expensive. So rescuing English Bulldogs is very expensive, and GEBR is a top-notch volunteer-driven organization. You can also support them by buying GEBR swag like a t-shirt or calendar, or making an online donation.
