another GOP house member will not run for re-election (2nd announced today!)

https://www.texastribune.org/2019/09/30/us-rep-mac-thornberry-will-not-run-reelection/

WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, announced Monday that he will not seek reelection in 2020, making him the sixth GOP congressman from Texas to say he's retiring in recent weeks.

"It has been a great honor for me to represent the people of the 13th District of Texas for the last 25 years," he said in a statement.

“We are reminded, however, that 'for everything there is a season,' and I believe that the time has come for a change. Therefore, I will not be a candidate for reelection in the 2020 election."

Trump is the first modern president to leap from no govt office to presidency

Even Ronald Reagan held a lower level office. Trump has not even held local office such as council person.

We are seeing the result... unchecked lawlessness.

PragerU relies on a veneer of respectability to obscure its propagandist mission

PragerU relies on a veneer of respectability to obscure its propagandist mission
WRITTEN BY PARKER MOLLOY

Despite the name, Prager University is not, to quote from the disclaimer pasted on the bottom of its homepage, “an accredited academic institution” -- nor does it “offer certifications or diplomas.”

Despite its claim that its videos are being “censored” by social media platforms, the site boasts that those same videos have racked up more than 2.45 billion views across YouTube and Facebook.

Despite -- once again, quoting from its homepage -- being “a place where you are free to learn,” it’s liable to leave you misinformed.

No one article can truly encapsulate Prager’s decades of political commentary, but he did a pretty decent job summarizing his own worldview in a March column in the National Review. In the piece, he explained why he didn’t believe the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to disrupt the 2016 election:

But the biggest reason I never believed the Russian collusion charge was that the charge emanated from the left. And the Left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it.

If you always doubt a leftist claim, you will almost always be closer to the truth. I employed that rule in concluding the collusion story was a fraud, and it served me well.


There’s a big difference between critical thinking and reflexive contrarianism. A 2011 blog post shines further light on how Prager sees the world:
Ever since I attended college, I have been convinced that either “studies” confirm what common sense suggests or that they are mistaken. I realized this when I was presented with study after study showing that boys and girls were not inherently different from one another, and they acted differently only because of sexist upbringings.


To Prager, if evidence doesn’t support his existing beliefs, the evidence must be wrong

. This is instructive when it comes to understanding what kind of education one might get from a diet of PragerU videos.

PragerU is a Legit University, As Long as Dennis Prager Gets to Decide What That Means

https://www.rightwingwatch.org/post/prageru-is-a-legit-university-as-long-as-dennis-prager-gets-to-decide-what-that-means/


Right-wing columnist and commentator Dennis Prager insists that his media enterprise PragerU is a legitimate university, as long as you’re open to lying to yourself about what a university is.

During a PragerU “Fireside Chat” broadcast yesterday, Prager took issue with an August Los Angeles Times article that accurately noted that PragerU is not actually a university. Prager questioned what it truly means to be a university and contended that his communications shop, which publishes highly trafficked videos loaded with right-wing talking points presented as educational materials, was in fact a type of university.

“Now if ‘university’ means by definition you grant degrees and you are accredited by whoever accredits universities to be a degree-granting place, then we’re not a university,” Prager said.

That is exactly what the word university means.

“But is that the only definition? My contention is that it is a university, but it doesn’t grant degrees and it’s not accredited, and that’s absolutely accurate. We don’t portray ourselves as what we’re not. But if a university is a place to learn and learn and learn, and study and study and study, and gain wisdom, then why aren’t we a university?” Prager rhetorically asked.

To further strengthen his case, Prager compared his operation to something called “Donut University,” where people learn how to make doughy treats.
