NARN, the Used To Be Our Town Too Edition!

posted at 8:00 am on March 19, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

The Northern Alliance Radio Network will be on the air today, with your hosts Mitch Berg and Ed Morrissey, on from 1-3 CT with live streaming video and chat. If you’re in the Twin Cities, you can hear us on AM 1280 The Patriot, or on the station’s Internet stream if you’re outside of the broadcast area, as well as right here on on the permanent Ed Morrissey Show page at Hot Air.

Today, Mitch and I will talk with Ann Althouse about the threats she has received since writing about the standoff between the unions and the state legislature.  Be prepared to hear the bleep a lot as we discuss the demands that she and her husband get out of Madison.  We’ll also talk more about the court order that stopped the budget-repair bill’s implementation.  Who will control public policy in Madison, and will open debate and dissent survive?  Join us and find out!

Be sure to call 651-289-4488 to join the conversation! You can also register for free at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions. (And if the log-in prompt doesn’t come up in the chat box below, use this link instead.)

We’ll also cover the the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area since Saturday afternoon. Marizela’s case has a connection here at Hot Air, as she is the cousin of the Boss Emeritus, Michelle Malkin. Michelle is trying to spread the word through Facebook and Q13Fox/KCPQ in Seattle. We want to encourage prayers for Marizela’s family, and also try to reach anyone in the area who knows where Marizela might be and ask them to contact the police.

The search has its own website now, Find Marizela, for the latest in the efforts to bring Marizela home.  There is also a fund for the family to keep the search efforts going.  Be sure to check there and at Michelle’s site for further developments, and keep the family in your prayers.

The Gunwalker Scandal: Why? Where did it start? How high does it go? Darrell Issa should ask Rahm Emanuel.

“A deliberate attempt by policymakers at the highest levels of the Obama administration to subvert the Second Amendment and further diminish the free exercise of firearm rights of honest citizens.”

“Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.” — White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in November, 2008.

It is not that the administration and party leadership didn’t WANT another AWB and the absolute federal takeover of all private transfers, they did. But the politics weren’t right and didn’t look like they’d be right until at least after the 2010 mid-terms and not even, perhaps, until after Obama’s reelection in 2012 (which they took as given as long as the toxic issue of firearms control for the law-abiding wasn’t mentioned).

But what was not politically possible in early March . . . could it be MADE possible by events? My sources now tell me that they have learned that this question was crystallized in a series of “tightly-held” meetings in the immediate aftermath of the Holder gaffe. They also say that Rahm Emanuel was “a key player.”

I saw dozens of the Find Marizela posters in Downtown Seattle today
