NARN, the Holes for Heroes Edition!

posted at 1:00 pm on February 4, 2012 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 broadcast live from Holes for Heroes, an ice-fishing fundraiser for wounded veterans of the armed services and their families.  Just call us Conservatives On Ice as we sit atop frozen Medicine Lake and broadcast live from the ice.  We’ll also have an interview that Mitch and I conducted yesterday with former Congressman J. C. Watts, who is in the state stumping for Newt Gingrich ahead of the Minnesota caucuses on Tuesday.  Will Mitch or I catch a fish, or just catch a cold?  Join us and find out!

Update: We also spoke with Chris Fields, who’s running for Congress in MN-05, Keith Ellison’s district.

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.)

Marizela Perez has been missing in the Seattle area for almost a year now. 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.

America’s Most Wanted is now on the case, too.

Michelle has an update on the case:

She disappeared from the University of Washington campus area in Seattle at the age of 18 exactly seven months ago today. Spring and summer came and went, along with Marizela’s 19th birthday. Autumn is now upon us. Her university friends are back in school.

Life goes on, but remains at a standstill.

Uncertainty corrodes.

Grief deepens and settles without the ability to mourn.

There are no new developments from the Seattle Police Department. Nothing to report.

The family is moving forward on the legal front to try and obtain information from Marizela’s Internet/social networking accounts that the Seattle Police Department refuses to share with her parents. Internet lawyers tell us the case is complicated, but they’re willing to help and we are grateful.

Continued thanks for all your prayers and well wishes for Emem and her parents.

Keep the prayers coming.

Where’s everybody?

I love it when draft dodging, differment seekers, or just plain not joiners over amp the support the troops scams to create jobs for there club mates and deflect attention away from every American’s duty to demand our government provide all the services needed for our warriors.
Pukes like Hannity, and O’Reilly and hosts of dozens make people comfortable with their failure to do their duty, def:”that which is owed” to those who did sacrifice to perform their duty, because they went to some concert or bought some factor gear.

Can one of you 1%’s please send Ed a nicer hat!
The stuff he will do for the cause! But the hat!
I need to find a station in the Detroit area, when Ed is on during the week. I get weekends with Ed. Can listen at least while I’m working. Been looking..no can find! Can’t use the computer at work…I have a window open on HA already, for when I have a moment.

Pukes?

Marizela is probably hanging out in heaven, with god and stuff.

Amen!

[Ed: It's hard to believe that anyone would object to bringing attention to the case of a missing young woman, especially one related to a close friend of mine. However, we thankfully don't have to deal with this person and his vile, despicable, and emotionally crippled point of view any longer. Buh-bye, troll.]

I don’t know what makes you such a lowlife, or so imminently stupid, but whatever it is…IT REALLY WORKS!

KOOLAID2 on February 4, 2012 at 5:50 PM

Ed, I thanked you in the Tebow thread for ridding us of this “person”, and that was before I saw what he said above, which is even worse than the bile he spewed there.

Thanks again, and good riddance to him/her, forever!

TXUS on February 4, 2012 at 6:49 PM

Yep. Thanks Ed.

Prayers for Michelle and her entire family.

The Young Lady will now be in my prayers, I pray, pray she’s safe and comes home soon.

God Bless Michelle, and her friends and family.. and especially,.. Marizela. God be with her.

Thanks, Ed. He attacked me earlier. What a Loser.

kingsjester on February 4, 2012 at 8:01 PM

I pray that Marizela will return safely to her family!

May God bring Marizela home to her family safe and sound.
