KrisAnne Hall, strict-constructionist constitutional lawyer, educator, Tea Party activist, and author, was this month's guest on C-Span2's "In-Depth" this afternoon. The program, three hours long, will be repeated tonight at midnight EDT. She responds to questions and comments from the program moderator and from viewers on her life and works. The titles of several of her books - Bedtime Stories for Budding Patriots and Not a Living Breathing Document: Reclaiming the Constitution tells much about her philosophy and teaching. Equally interesting is the story of her life, going from her childhood in a Democrat household where "the only thing more evil in the world than a Republican was Satan" to holding the beliefs she has today (examples: states have every right to secede from the union; the federal government has no right to be involved in our food, drugs, or medical care). Fascinating is the last five minutes of the show, where she tells of how she started in believing that she was "too smart" to be one of those dumb Christians and went on to finding a strong religious belief that guides her life and teachings, which seem almost a religious mission for her. The preliminary to the show is forty-five minutes with Dinesh D'Souza, scheduled for 11:15 PM EDT, in debate with the president of the Alinsky Society and with Alinsky's son. This program, moderated by James O'Keefe ("Project Veritas") covers Alinsky's writings and work, but D'Souza goes behind the public face of the man to give insight into what he really stood for. Example: Alinsky stated outright several times that his big aim in life was to get things for free; while at the University of Chicago he developed a scheme to eat for nothing in the school cafeterias, then gave seminars to other students on how they could get away with the scam. The Alinskyites of course spend their time talking about how his intent was really to give power to the people. At the end of the show D'Souza points out the weakness in the Alinsky approach - to want to give power to the people so they can take what the rich have only makes the people rich themselves, and the cycle logically then has to begin all over again; the only ones winning in that scheme are those helping the people gaining power, such as Alinsky. Both programs are worthy of revving up the DVR.
“holding the beliefs she has today (examples: states have every right to secede from the union; the federal government has no right to be involved in our food, drugs, or medical care).”
Sounds excellent. Thanks for the heads-up.
KrisAnne Hall. Wow! I would walk across the width of
the continent to watch the US Senate hearing resulting
from a Supreme Court appointment by Trump.
It would be nice to have someone who knows the Constitution as well as she does on the Supreme Court.....
