    This is the roundtable for ABC tomorrow? Ok….LOL, the Sunday talk shows sure aint what they used to be.

    Then, the “This Week” powerhouse roundtable debates the Supreme Court’s key health care and immigration decisions and all the week’s politics, with Keith Olbermann, ABC News’ George Will, Democratic strategist and ABC News contributor Donna Brazile, former Rep. Artur Davis, and “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran, who covers the Supreme Court for ABC News.

      Artur Davis is the cover for racism and Donna Brazile is just happy to be anywhere. My family in Alabama can’t stand Davis, they were happy to vote his ass out.

    – — – -A news organization says it has seen emails showing Penn State’s former president Graham Spanier agreed not to take allegations of sex abuse against ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky to authorities but worried university officials would be “vulnerable” for failing to report it.

    CNN says the emails, first reported by NBC, followed a graduate assistant’s 2001 report of seeing Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in a team locker room shower.

    The emails show athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz intended to report the allegation, then reconsidered. Spanier responded that he was “supportive” of their plan, but he worried they might “become vulnerable for not having reported it.”

    – – – SNIP- – —
    Spanier sued Penn State in May to try to get copies of his email traffic from 1998 to 2004, citing the pending investigation being conducted on the university by former FBI director Louis Freeh. Two weeks ago, lawyers for Penn State asked a judge to throw out the lawsuit and said the attorney general’s office, which is prosecuting Curley and Schultz, had asked them not to provide Spanier with the emails.

      GLH, Also too… The Penn State president knew and so did Gov. Corbett, who was state Attorney General at the time that all of this was going down.

      Corbett let Sandusky stay free for THREE YEARS while the grand jury investigated. HE KNEW FULL WELL what the deal was. He didn’t want to squash all that Penn State $$$ he had the potential of getting for his upcoming gubernatorial race.

      Then as Gov., Corbett gave the Second Mile foundation $3 million, knowing the allegations against Sandusky. Corbett is just as guilty as the coach who saw Sandusky in the shower raping a boy. What a skank!

    Romney and Kobach and Voting Rights

    By Kay June 30th, 2012

    The United States had another win on Obamacare Day, when the State of Arizona lost in an attempt to ignore or dodge federal law:


    The Supreme Court today denied an application by the State of Arizona to put on hold an April ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The Ninth Circuit sitting en banc found that voter registration provisions of Arizona’s Proposition 200 violate the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA), and that Arizona cannot reject federal mail-in voter registration applications if they do not include documentary proof of citizenship.
    While Arizona can still seek Supreme Court review of the Ninth Circuit decision, today’s Supreme Court’s decision makes it unlikely that the Court would grant such a request.

    This means that the State of Arizona cannot impose restrictions on voting if those restrictions violate the National Voter Registration Act.

    Meet Kris Kobach, the Secretary of State of Kansas, who has been advising Romney since 2008:
    Kobach is most known, however, as the author of the Arizona Senate Bill 1070, the controversial law that gives local police broad powers to question and arrest undocumented immigrants. Several other states, including Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina, used the law as model for similar legislation. Kobach helped write the Alabama version.
    He also is the driving force behind proof-of-citizenship voter registration requirements in Kansas that other states have modeled. In January, Kobach endorsed the presidential campaign of Republican Mitt Romney days before the South Carolina primary

    Kris Kobach believes that he is an advisor to Mitt Romney. This is potentially controversial, because Kobach is an anti-immigrant extremist who has also has done extensive work on voting issues. As in all things involving Mitt Romney, there are so many lies and dodges and contradictory claims that I have no earthly idea whether Kobach is an “official” advisor to Mitt Romney or not.

    This is what Mitt Romney said about Kobach:

  • Aquagranny911

    I’ve been so distracted that I have forgotten to thank you for the diaries this week. I don’t know beans about video games but I learned a lot. I especially liked reading about those people who developed that “skunk” thing that they went on to use in helping our Vets with PTSD.

    This is what research, science & technology is all about. Something developed for one thing turns out to have even more applications down the line.

    Don’t know about the rest of you all but as long as I am breathing, I WILL NOT go with out a fight to where the GOP wants to take us. We need our young people, our creative thinkers and our doers of great things to be encouraged, supported & nurtured.

    We need all of our people, using their brains, their talents, to be given the opportunities to create things no one has ever even dreamed about because they may still be in the head of some 6 year old skipping on a worn out play ground somewhere.

    We have a future to protect!

    • isonprize

      Absolutely, AG! Absolutely, I spent last week teaching at a summer science camp. After I got the kids to understand that we really were serious, we wanted them to show us what they already knew. But we also wanted them to learn some new stuff too, We cared if they actually LEARNED IT!!! Then, they really got into it.

      One team of mostly girls, once they got the giggles out, really shined!! They built a crude, but working!, model of a prosthetic hand. (The 3 girls made the boy record the notes. I had to step out of the room, so as not to show my amusement….)

      We had them understanding what goes into an enteric coating of an aspirin and why that’s important. They learned why deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) could prove who was (or wasn’t) the baby’s daddy.

      Seriously, if we could just get our kids to understand that THEY HAVE IT IN THEM!!! These weren’t the “genius kids” the wealthy or pampered kids. There were regular kids who did okay in school. By the end of the first week, they were feeling pretty smart. Asking excellent questions, taking notes. choosing roles on their teams to get their work done more efficiently.

      • edp4bho

        I’m impressed by not only the children, but by your commitment to bringing out their brilliance. If only all adults would realize how precious their minds and spirits are, our children- no matter the ethnicity– would truly shine. Thanks for all you do. Hope you’re staying cool in this Philly humidity :-)

        • isonprize

          edp, Thanks for your kind words. I was at Temple. And I firmly believe that one of the reasons that Re-thugs are such fans of “charter” schools is that #1- they can make $$ and #2- they can pick and choose (regardless of the bs propoganda they push) the kids that get into them. Charters have been proven to do no better, and sometimes worse, than regular public schools.

          Anybody notice that charter schools aren’t being proposed in wealthy, white suburbs where the regular public schools are doing fine? “Blue Ribbons” are being awarded to some of those public schools.

          They don’t want these kids, the ‘regular’ kids, to figure out that they have SO MUCH MORE potential than they are given credit for.

          I’m “ride or die” when it comes to PBO, but the whole charter school thing is my only “beef” with him. (and he didn’t ask me!! LOLOLOL) but I am NOT a fan of Arne Duncan.

          • edp4bho

            I’ve heard the non-support of Duncan from the black community as well. As for charter schools, I don’t have a problem with specialty charter schools i.e., science, technology, industrial- those focused on specific fields. However, I’ve maintained that to take money away from public is tantamount to child abandonment. Every school in this nation should be on equal footing when it comes to all children. This is why other countries are out-performing our kids on whole because of the discrimination in commitment dollars and teacher performance. As for beef with PBO, we never agree with anyone on everything, so hey, I’m with you on that…LOL! Have a good night all, and stay cool, and don’t forget your water !

          • isonprize

            A few problems I have, even with the “good” charter schools:

            They don’t have the same fiscal issues as regular public schools.

            They actively discriminate against children with special needs (who, because of their needs, cost more.)

            They can skim the “good” students off the top.

            Most charters don’t have the same teacher certification requirements, if any.

            They generally don’t have unions. ding, ding, ding, ding!!!!

            HHhhmmmm, I wonder what union is one of the largest supporters of Democratic causes? And teachers are mostly WOMEN!!!

            I think we have a winner, boys and girls.

      • Aquagranny911

        This is a totally great! Thank you for sharing! This is what I mean. Loved that about the 3 girls having the boy take notes. Not to be sexist, but they did probably vote on that, lol.

        Jeeze Loweez! How do we know “genius kids?” Are they born with “I’m a Genius” stamped on their foreheads? Do you get to be a genius only if your parents are rich?

        We need to start giving all our kiddos a chance to show their own personal “genius.” That’s what this is all about!

        • isonprize

          The “Girl power” was very cool to watch!! Especially at a science camp. As for the “genius” kids, I just meant the kids who get A’s and B’s easily. The kids who know are going to succeed no matter what.

          My thing is that those “genius” kids sometimes are, but most times, are NOT really ‘smarter’ than the ‘regular’ kids. They usually just have better work ethic, more supportive parents, solid teachers, and generally just have a more confident nature about themselves.

          The ‘regular’ kids, especially the girls, but some boys also, are less confident. They don’t want to be teased for being brainiac. They don’t want to stand out.

          And when they do get the courage to try an answer, they want to be correct. They don’t want to be embarrassed to get it wrong. So… they don’t try.

          Once we got them to understand that, especially in science, the whole thing is TO EXPERIMENT!! And, even with safety precautions and the right protocols, you are still going to get shit wrong. But then, you analyze it to see where you can improve. You KEEP IT MOVING!!!

          (I didn’t say it that way, but we did treat them like real scientists and engineers. We made them work in teams, record their work, show and report out on their work. )

          It actually made me begin to re-think my decision to NOT teach. I’m still mulling over getting that teaching certificate… UGGGHHH I’m too old for this shit!! LOLOLOL

          • Aquagranny911

            No way are you “too old!” I love what you shared here. These children you touched will never forget this experience. It made them think, made them stretch their imaginations, take risks & encouraged them to work together for their goals.

      I’m sure his employee agreement contained all kinds of non-disclosure and non-compete clauses.

      I want to thank him for lifting that veil off Politico tho…we knew it anyway, but he really proved it for those still hanging on to the pretense that fake acts like Politico/Buzzfeed/etc were attempting to be impartial news sources.

      • trose1

        Joe Williams did what most AA journalists will not do, stand up and tell the truth. He deserves credit for having the courage to tell the truth. I still have not seen much of tweet from other Black journalists defending Joe W.
        Roland did stand up for him on twitter. The rest seem to be MIA,

        • Miranda

          Standing up on twitter means not a thing in this instance IMO…the tweets by Roland were real passive-passive. The careful to not display anger, but have a “cant we all just get along” tone. He was watching his back, not watching Joe’s. But that’s alright, I really didn’t expect much more from individuals that are employed by certain networks or entities…but I did expect the NABJ as an organization to do SOMETHING. they didn’t do anything at all. They go hollering about Rev Al getting a show on msnbc, then go mute on this whole sham on Joe Williams??

    New Right Wing Fast and Furious Talking Point: Liberals Are Heartless Monsters

    Wingnuts • Sat Jun 30, 2012 at 3:53 pm PDT • Views: 838

    I notice that the wingnut blogs are settling on a new line of attack for the “Fast and Furious” fake outrage: if you point out that the whole thing is a politically driven phony scandal, that means you’re a heartless monster who doesn’t care about murdered agent Brian Terry, his family, or the “brown people” (yes, I saw a post with those words) that are killed by the Obama administration’s guns.

    I think I’m summarizing their talking point accurately. And now Breitbart.com hitman John Nolte is going after Politico’s Roger Simon from exactly this angle: POLITICO’S CHIEF POLITICAL COLUMNIST MOCKS FAST & FURIOUS!

    With a big picture of Brian Terry, in case you missed Nolte’s point:

    Colorado wildfire: Obama departs Colorado Springs, mayor reflects

    COLORADO SPRINGS — The mayor of this beleaguered city told reporters after President Barack Obama departed on Air Force One that he was thankful for the visit and described his two-and-a-half hours with the president during the tour of the Waldo Canyon Fire damage.

    Air Force One was wheels up from Colorado Springs airport at 2:42 p.m. Afterward Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach said the firefighting effort “shows the power of federal, state and local governments working together.”

    Bach was in the limo with Obama, Gov. John Hickenlooper and others for about 2 1/2 hours. He said the president was “very down to earth, very straightforward, smart, and wants to help.”

      After reading some of the residents’ comments, and knowing it’s a conservative area who “aren’t likely to vote for him”, I have no sympathy. Sorry. They made snide remarks which were so uncalled for, and they show no gratitude at all for their lives being spared. And these people “think” they are moral? If that had been GW Bush who had toured my devastated area, I would not have thought of him that way. I would have appreciated him taking the time, though I disagreed with him 99%. I also never felt the need to go online to deride Bush either. If you don’t like someone, don’t waste your time considering them, I say. Otherwise, nice story. But then, PBO is a nice man. To hell with the haters. Just my 2 cents worth :-)

      • Aquagranny911

        I didn’t read any of the resident comments but I was pleased that Bach had some positive things to say about PBO. I agree about what you said though. When we had some big fires here & Bush finally came to visit one of them, people were receptive & courteous.

      Bach is conservative ‘R’ and the first Mayor of Colorado Springs which just had a city council till 2010 I think, so his positive comments about PBO are huge. It’s well worth reading that whole Denver Post article for all that Bach said.

    Obama made calls to Govs. John Kasich (R-Ohio), Bob McDonnell (R-Va.), Martin O’Malley (D-Md.), and Earl Ray Tomblin (D) to “receive an update on the severe storms… and to express his condolences for the loss of life and his concern for individuals and first responders still confronting the destruction and loss of power that is impacting communities as a result,” the White House said in a readout.

    – – The administration said the president informed the governors that he had “directed FEMA to ensure they continue to provide necessary support to state and local officials in impacted areas as they respond to these events, especially considering the power outages and the high temperatures many of the impacted areas are currently experiencing.”

    The mid-Atlantic region was hit by violent thunderstorms Friday night which killed at least nine people and have knocked out power to nearly 2 million, the Associated Press reports.

    – – -SNIP- – –

    – -Earlier Saturday, Obama declared a state of emergency in West Virginia and authorized the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) “to coordinate all disaster relief efforts,” according to a statement from the White House. Five-hundred thousand residents in the states are believed to be without power.

    Former Town Official Wishes Cancer on Supreme Court Justices

    Former Town Councilor Mike Malzone, the founder of the Merrimack Tea Party, said Thursday in a Facebook post reacting to the Supreme Court ruling on health care, “I hope the (5 supremes) get colon cancer.”

    A day after posting the message, Malzone said he stands by what he said. He clarified that he doesn’t want anyone to die, and the cancer reference was more to make a point that he wants them to feel the pain being inflicted on Americans being overburdened by taxes.

    “I didn’t wish for anyone to die, but I said I do wish for them to feel our pain,” he said. “No one cares about me, they all make their promises and then go do what they goddamn feel.”

    Chief Justice John Roberts’s health-care ruling gets plenty second-guessing

    Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., under intense scrutiny for his decision upholding President Obama’s health-care law, is headed for an overseas teaching gig in Malta.

    “An impregnable island fortress,” Roberts told a conference of judges and lawyers meeting Friday morning in rural Pennsylvania. “It seemed like a good idea.”

    Back in Washington, the legal and political worlds are trying to digest the stunning news that one of the court’s most consistent conservatives had pulled Obama’s signature domestic achievement from the brink.

    Court specialists analyzed Thursday’s 5-to-4 opinion for clues, wondering whether Roberts might have switched his vote from invalidating the law to upholding it largely unscathed.

    Hey rikyrah,

    did ya see my post about seeing Magic Mike last night? It was pretty good. There weren’t as many dancing scenes as the previews made it seem, but it you go into not expecting to see that many, but expecting to see a pretty “real” portrayal of the off stage life of male stripper, then you won’t be disappointed by it at all.

    At the very least, you get to see alot of Adam Rodriguez and Channing Tatum and the other guys.

    At the very least:
    YOU.WILL.NEVER.LOOK.AT.MCCONAUGHEY.THE.SAME.AGAIN! Woo chile, let’s just say…buns of steele baby…lol.

    Finally catching up on the US Olympics Swimming Trials. I always root for the Black person first, then the underdog, then the big name champion. Hmm, no Black swimmers in pool, hmm…lol.

    ETA: Oh and I’m sorry, but Michael Phelps…great swimmer’s body…face like a foot! Am I wrong???

    • crazycanuck

      I saw a black swimmer the other day, can’t remember her name though.

      • lamh35

        yeah saw her in one of the later finals. Her name was Chenault (see I remember that without even rewinding) but she was dead last I believe. So she had no real chance.

    – – Race and the Fight Against Obamacare - – –

    – – – -With resistance to President Obama’s health care law culminating with the Supreme Court deciding the fate of the most important social policy since enactment of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965, the failure to win popular support for health care will be studied for many years to come. Racism has clearly emerged as a significant factor underlying opposition to the law and must be a part of any honest attempt at understanding how some Americans formed opinions about the Affordable Care Act.

    For twenty years, the majority of Americans favored reforming the health care system. However, unlike during former President Clinton’s reform efforts in the early 1990s, support for the Affordable Care Act was not only sharply divided along ideological grounds, but by race as well.

    – – – – -SNIP-

    As debate over Obama’s health care proposals increased, a significant change in racialization on health care opinions was observed, according to a study published in February by Micheal Tesler, a political scientist professor at Brown University. Antiblack stereotypes, which had no independent influence on preference for governmental insurance in March 2009, became a strong predictor of views on this issue by September of the same year. Additionally, Tesler found that when the same health care proposals were attributed to Obama as opposed to Clinton, racial resentment and antiblack stereotypes significantly reduced support for health care reform.
