CLAR170-1968-Banner

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday nights, 6:00 Pacific/9:00 Eastern) will be a two-part program, airing on 04/22/16 and 04/29/16, looking at the year 1968.

Why 1968? Well, what with promises of rioting at the GOP Convention in Cleveland and whatnot, there seems to be a bit of déjà vu afloat lately. So…why not?

Hopefully there will be a ‘couple guest intros, but up in the air right now.

CLA Radio 04/01/16: Gram Parsons & Warren Zevon

clar136-gramparsonsbanner

warren-zevon-1976-by-klaus-hiltscher

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 04/01/16, 7:00 PM Pacific/10:00 PM Eastern) will be a two-show rerun, to accommodate Generalissimo‘s transitioning.

Wait, that didn’t sound right.

See, the deal is, Generalissimo Duane Paterson, AKA @Radioblogger is a bit busy lately, what with Mr. Hewlitt’s show moving to an insanely early time slot, Mr. Hewlitt relocating to D.C. environs and therefore requiring a new studio to communicate with the Mother Ship in SoCal, changing the Hughniverse video and chat formats, moving the Aftershow, figuring out a replay of HHRS format to keep the afternoon Tribble chat cohort intact, and him dealing with…cancer and stuff.

Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

So anyway, that’s why all the CLAR reruns lately. If I pushed it, Duane would accommodate me. Wouldn’t be prudent.

So anyway, the first ‘couple hours will be my Gram Parsons show from May 2015, and then the next ‘couple hours will be my Warren Zevon show from July 2015.

Yes, over four hours of CLAR wonderfulness!

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat.

clar120-punk-banner

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 03/18/16, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will probably alienate all but one or two three or four Tribbles, since it will be all about Punk and derivatives thereof.

This is a repeat (the original air date was 01/02/15), owing to Generalissimo Duane Patterson being busier than the proverbial one-armed paper hanger, what with setting up a new studio for Hugh Hewitt in D.C., and…other stuff.

Kurt Schlichter opens the show. Yep! There will be abundant #caring.

A Song

It’s not very often that a character in a dream is kind enough to sing a song to me. Even less often that I get up and write it down. I’ve monkeyed with it slightly.

Apparently said character was referring to a co-worker in a workplace, since she prefaced the lines with “This is what she’s singing to herself back there today.” The character was describing this to someone else, but I was at the same table.

Maybe I’ll record the melody later.

F*** you and the horse you rode in on
F*** you and the horse you’re astride
F*** you and your horse
Not literally, of course…
F*** you and the horse that you ride

Larry Arnn is wrong about Donald Trump

In an election cycle that does not lack for reality-bending narratives, one of the more gobsmacking ones came from–of all people–Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College.

On 3/2/16, Dr. Arnn said the following on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show (audio here):

I can’t find any evidence, since 2000, that Donald Trump is not a supporter of limited and Constitutional government.

(Dr. Arnn did add the Takings Clause as the one exception to his assertion, and said that Trump’s position on Kelo is Constitutionally wrongheaded.)

Dr. Arnn is the last person I would expect to engage in argument from ignorance, but his assertion boils down to nothing more than that.

As Bruce Fein at The Washington Times wrote, the same day that Arnn’s interview was aired:

Among other things, Mr. Trump has taken up arms against the Eighth Amendment prohibition of torture, the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment requirements of due process, the First Amendment’s protection of religious freedom, the Article VI prohibition of religious test oaths, the Article I, section 8, clause 11 proscriptions of presidential wars, and the War Crimes Act of 1996 that implements international law.

Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

The Hill, 12/10/15:

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Thursday vowed to issue an executive order to mandate the death penalty for anyone who kills a police officer.

The Washington Post, 9/23/15:

Trump quickly exploded on Twitter and wrote in a tweet: “Incompetent @RichLowry lost it tonight on @FoxNews. He should not be allowed on TV and the FCC should fine him!”

Politico, 2/26/16:

“One of the things I’m going to do if I win, and I hope we do and we’re certainly leading. I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money. We’re going to open up those libel laws. So when The New York Times writes a hit piece which is a total disgrace or when The Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they’re totally protected,” Trump said.

RedState, 8/15/15:

We now have Trump on record as saying he “loves the idea of campaign finance reform”. If you remember, that was one of our biggest problems with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) back in 2008: his co-authoring of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill with leading Senate progressive Democrat Russ Feingold. Is that what Trump wants to see more of?

CNN, 11/22/15:

Republican presidential contenders split Sunday on a proposal to ban individuals on a terror watch list from buying guns, with front-runner Donald Trump backing the measure and Ben Carson opposing it.

National Post, 8/19/15:

“Bill, I don’t think that [“anchor babies”] have American citizenship,” he said. “And if you speak to some very, very good lawyers — and I know some would disagree, but many of them agree with me — you’re going to find they do not have American citizenship. We have to start a process where we take back our country. Our country is going to hell.”

That’s just for starters. Surely Dr. Arnn’s crack staff could find more, if they but look.
