Lamar Alexander Joins Republican ‘Moderates’ Kissing Trump’s Ring

Náhled

Lamar Alexander Joins Republican ‘Moderates’ Kissing Trump’s Ring Alex Wong/Getty ImagesA favorite parlor game in Washington is counting Republican senators who might vote to remove President Trump from office. On everybody’s list until last week was Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander, former governor, former university president, secretary of education in the first Bush administration — the epitome of an Establishment Republican who’s not running for reelection in 2020.  Graham had been one of nine holdouts who refused to sign onto a resolution sponsored by Republican Lindsey Graham to condemn the House’s “closed-door” impeachment inquiry. Then he folded last week, a Big Get for the  anti-impeachers that gave those who once admired him another reason to wonder what happened to the Lamar they knew, the Lamar who reminded them of Howard Baker, the Tennessee Republican who’d put country over party in the Watergate hearings.     “He’s the only Republican I ever voted for,” says Roy Neel, a Tennessean and longtime chief of staff to Al Gore, another native son. “He was a good governor, a moderate governor. You could count on him doing the right thing for the state. He brought people together, he had good staff, and he reflected Tennessee then, a moderate, swing state. He was heir to Howard Baker’s legacy. Somewhere along the way he parked his integrity.” As Tennessee got redder, so did Alexander. He announced late last year that he wouldn’t run for reelection in 2020, so he had the political maneuvering room to stick with the three remaining holdouts to the Graham Resolution: Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.  Why he bolted is “a big mystery to me,” says Neel. “The resolution doesn’t mean anything. It’s not going to change any minds. It’s a show of McConnell’s strength as a leader.”  The resolution may not even come to a vote, and it wouldn’t pass in the Senate anyway because it couldn’t meet the threshold of 60 votes. With Speaker Pelosi bringing the impeachment vote to the floor to initiate the next phase of open hearings, the Graham Resolution looks even more hapless.  Neel speculates that McConnell has gotten to Alexander, perhaps pointing out that if he’s thinking about a cushy position in a second Trump administration, he’d better toe the line. “Unless he wants to go home and grow tomatoes, he’d better get on board and join the anti-impeachment crowd.” For those who remember the Alexander of his youth and middle age, the 79-year-old senator is a major disappointment. Neel recalls that Alexander was editor of the Vanderbilt student newspaper, The Hustler, and wrote an editorial in 1961 or ‘62 calling on the university to integrate the student body, not a popular position at the time. “I had admired him,” Neel told the Daily Beast.  As a reporter for Newsweek, I covered Alexander’s nascent presidential campaign in 1996, when his campaign slogan was LAMAR! An accomplished musician, he played the piano, country music, at campaign stops and he wore the red-and-black plaid shirt that had become his trademark running for governor. He dropped out before Super Tuesday, later saying, “I’m afraid that many people remembered my plaid shirt more than they did my message.”  His message: “Cut their pay and send them home.” He wanted to cut the salary of lawmakers in half and have them spend summers back home at real jobs. Republican strategist Bill Kristol was quoted at the time saying “Lamar would like to be kind of a kinder, gentler, saner Perot.”  In 2006, a newly discovered species of a hexapod, a six-legged kind of insect known as “springtail” that was found in Great Smoky Mountains National Park was named “cosberella lamaralexanderi” in honor of Alexander because of his support for scientific research funding in the park—and because its patterning resembled his plaid shirt. I imagine that honor means a lot to the Alexander I thought I knew, and maybe we shouldn’t overthink his apostasy on the anti-impeachment resolution, says Peter Montgomery, a senior fellow at People for the American Way, who studies right-wing movements. He sees Alexander as “a stark example of the completeness with which Trump demands and gets loyalty from congressional Republicans, and McConnell demands and gets rubber-stamp treatment from GOP senators. It could also be as a lifelong Republican, he doesn’t want to end his career hated by the Republicans, and the Republican Party right now is Trump’s party.”  Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Ahead Of BJP's Deadline, Sena Sends 'Wishes', Warns Of Horsetrading

With 24 hours to go before the BJP has to form government in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena heaped taunts on its ally, sending their "best wishes" and expressing confidence that it would try do its best to buy MLAs ahead of the test of strength in the assembly. The party also said they are confident that the Congress MLAs cannot be swayed. "I give my best wishes to the BJP to form their government in the state, as they claim to have a majority and numbers to have their own Chief Minister," said Sena's Sanjay Raut, who has been leading the party's offensive against the BJP since the counting of the assembly election votes.

Od sametu k realitě

V. Podracký 11.11.2019, 13:32

Sametová revoluce byla jedním z projevů vůle nalinkované velmocemi zrušit nereformovatelný komunistický režim a umožnit vládnoucí vrstvě se zařadit do funkčního kapitalistického systému. Pozadí manipulovaného převratu 17. listopadu 1989 Estébák Živčák zavedl studenty na Národní třídu, kde čekalo bicí komando. Tam byli zmláceni a Živčák dělal mrtvého.

Česká politická scéna jako na dlani

Je nutné udržet parlamentní demokracii před Milionem chvilek, vyzval Václav Klaus před zaplněným sálem. A když spatřil v publiku šéfa Rozhlasu...

REPORTÁŽ Jakou cestu jsme od sametové revoluce ušli? 30 let po pádu komunismu jsou na Západě podle Václava Klause staršího na vzestupu snahy rozbít celou civilizaci, zničit rodinu a vládnou ideologie útočící na podstatu člověka. Bývalý prezident to řekl na představení své nové knihy v pražském Obecním domě.

Šíří se tu strach z uprchlíků, které tu nemáme. A z islámu, který tu nemáme. Pavel Rychetský se rozčiloval v ČT. Pak se přidala Čaputová

12.11.2019, 23:02

V úterním vysílání pořadu Fokus Václava Moravce na ČT24 přišli na téma Boj za pravdu do Betlémské kaple pohovořit prezidentka Slovenské republiky Zuzana Čaputová, předseda Ústavního soudu ČR Pavel Rychetský, předsedkyně Učené společnosti Blanka Říhová a přednosta Ústavu etiky a humanitních studií 3. lékařské fakulty UK Marek Vácha. V diskuzi se řešil především stav české společnosti po roce 1989. A došlo na hutná slova. Rychetský poukázal na uprchlíky, které přijímal Západ po sovětské okupaci v 68 a pokáral národ, že nejsme ochotni přijmout „jakoukoli lidskou bytost, která utíká před terorem a násilím“. Vácha posléze pochválil současné studenty za to, že „tvoří dějiny“, když stávkují za klima a jsou „globálními občany“. Dodává též, že jeho generace musí nejprve „vymřít“. V závěru se zmínil i odkaz Václava Havla, přičemž padaly výrazy jako „lepšolidé, sluníčkáři či havloid“, což Rychetského rozpálilo pořádně do běla a spustil.

Babiš před listopadem 1989 nebyl velká ryba. Profesor Keller „vypouští rybník“ chvilkařům. A posílá vzkaz i Gretě. Zhroutí se z něho?

12.11.2019, 17:35

30 LET OD LISTOPADU 89 „V otázce tolerance nerovností se spěje jednoznačně k rezignaci stejně jako v otázkách jiných forem nespravedlnosti.“ Profesor Jan Keller upozorňuje, že s pokračujícím úpadkem sociálního státu se budou nerovnosti mezi lidmi zvyšovat. „Ještě více lidí přestane chodit k volbám, což dále posílí přesvědčení jistých politiků, že lidé jsou vlastně docela spokojení,“ podotýká. Andreje Babiše bývalý europoslanec nechápe: „Každý z jeho kritiků, pokud by měl jeho peníze, střelil by pod cenou všechny firmy i noviny a odstěhoval by se za Rittigem do Monaka, kde by žil jako spořádaný miliardář, který vůbec nikomu nevadí.“ Vysvětluje i to, proč Babiš zaručeně v ničem nejel.

Měly by se videoklipem „chvilkařů“ a některých umělců zabývat orgány činné v trestním řízení? Známý advokát vstupuje do dění

12.11.2019, 19:15

30 LET OD LISTOPADU 89 Z lidí ze spolku Milion chvilek, kteří se stali největšími přivlastňovači výročí 17. listopadu, je advokátu Jaroslavu Ortmanovi úplně trapně. Tvrdí, že listopadové události si zaslouží pietu a zamyšlení, nikoli demonstrace a už vůbec ne výzvy k odstoupení politiků, kteří byli řádně zvoleni. Pak by se odkazem 17. listopadu stalo neuznávání svobodných voleb a jejich vítěze, místo tehdejšího usmíření a velkorysosti. Polistopadový politik žasne nad tím, který blázen si vymyslel televizní projekt na úrovni ideového pojetí Vítězného února, v jehož rámci nám denně vtloukají do hlavy, jak dobře se máme a předtím jsme se neměli.

„Vy musíte byt strašná slepice.“ Babišova poslankyně vystoupila proti chystané demonstraci. A převálcovali ji

Poslankyně Barbora Kořanová (ANO) na svém twitteru spustila řetězovou reakci odsuzujících příspěvků, když se ohradila proti chystané demonstraci, kterou organizuje spolek Milion chvilek pro demokracii. „Zásadně se ohrazuji proti tomu, aby nikým nevolené spolky… dávaly ultimáta legitimně zvolenému předsedovi vlády,“ napsala Kořanová. Starosta Řeporyjí Pavel Novotný (ODS) ji za to nazval „slepicí“, a mnozí uživatelé ji přirovnali k předrevolučním komunistickým pohlavárům.

Ruské „stealth“ ponorky třídy Borej 955. Protiraketová obrana Aegis Ashore (USA-NATO)

Padraig McGrath 12.11.2019, 01:43

Norská zpravodajská stanice NRK uvedla 29. října mimořádnou zprávu, že 8 - 10 ruských ponorek, včetně ponorek třídy Sierra II, zahájilo v severním Atlantiku námořní cvičení. Je to jedno z největších ruských námořních cvičení, zaměřených na podmořské válčení, od konce studené války. Je pravděpodobné, že jedním z hlavních důvodů tohoto cvičení je testování schopnosti stealth ruských ponorek a také zjištění sledovacích schopností sil NATO v prostoru Grónsko-Island-Velká Británie (zkráceně „mezera GIUK“), pečlivě monitorovaném, strategicky zúženém terénu.

Se zavedením páté generace mobilních sítí český národ nejspíš zblbne

Mojmír Babáček 11.11.2019, 02:29

Allanu Freyovi bylo v roce 1960 25 let, měl vystudovanou biofyziku a pracoval na Cornellově universitě ve vývojovém elektronickém centru americké společnosti General Electrics. Když ho tamní radarový technik pozval, aby si šel poslechnout vysílání radaru, které se mu na jeho pracovišti ozývalo v mozku, nastartovalo to Freyovu celoživotní vědeckou dráhu. Už o rok později, v roce 1961 zveřejnil ve vědeckém časopise pokusy, při kterých vysílal do mozků pokusných subjektů ze vzdálenosti až 100 metrů různé zvuky s použitím pulsovaných mikrovln a vyvolával v nich pocit prudkého úderu do hlavy nebo pocity mravenčení. Jeho další pokusy financovalo americké válečné námořnictvo a letectvo, které v nich začaly vidět cestu k vyvinutí nových zbraní. Allan Frey se pustil do experimentů s krysami a žábami a zjistil, že k ovlivnění činnosti jejich nervového systému stačí menší intenzita elektromagnetického záření, než jaká je dnes používána při komunikaci mobilními telefony.

“2000 slov dnes” od obyčejné ženy

Jana Hamplová 10.11.2019, 00:53

Za pár dnů oslavíme 28. října a 17. listopadu. Čeká nás mnoho frází, mnoho osočujících diskuzí a mnoho bojů o místa na slunci a o zásluhy pro kde koho. A tak bych také ráda přispěla. Tak nějak normálně… od srdce. Protože se mi už dlouho zdá, že obsah našich životů uniká jak těm na pódiích, tak těm pod nimi. Jako by nešlo o to, proč se křičí, ale že se vůbec křičí. Bez ohledu na smysl toho křiku a bez ohledu na pravdu. A hlavně bez ohledu na zdravý rozum. V tom bezduchém překřikování všech těch part včetně té bruselské se ztrácí obyčejný člověk. Občan. Máma. Táta. Děti. Babička a děda. Obce. Města. Domov. Naše země. Naše Evropa. Ztrácíme se v tom my všichni a začínáme být bezradní a zmatení. Protože o nás na těch pódiích přestalo jít. Bez ohledu na všechny proklamace.

Jsme součástí světového zla

Lubomír Man 07.11.2019, 00:54

Jedu tramvají do středu města. Proti mně sedí asi šestnáctiletá dívka s andělským obličejem, vyřazujícím dobro i laskavost v míře, který nevídáte každý den. Jednou z ní bude dobrá a chápající manželka a jedinečná matka a vychovatelka svých dětí, přemítám, a tu mě napadne, že i ona, přes veškerou její jistě čistou mysl a stejně jistě i její bezchybné skutky, je součástí jistého pozemského zla. Jeho součástí sice nedobrovolnou a současně i nepatrnou, jakou je třeba obilné zrníčko na obilném lánu, ale i tak s tímto zlem spojená.

USA zesilují geopolitický boj o Sýrii

Melkulangara K. Bhadrakumar 06.11.2019, 00:34

Nikdo by si nepomyslel, že po rozhodnutí amerického prezidenta Donalda Trumpa stáhnout všechna americká vojska ze Sýrie, které učinil před třemi týdny, bude opět následovat razantní zapojení americké armády v této zemi. Americké jednotky byly nejprve poslány do Iráku, ale jen proto, aby se vrátily do Sýrie v plné zbroji. Nyní se připravují plány na posílení nasazením jednotek.
