… Obama ‘ s Drone Strike Policy is a Failure [#intelligence gathering]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 27th,2016

.. especially with an admission like this one ..

.. you need to gather intelligence . It means that you have to go in and grab the bad guys , interrogate the hell out of them , and try them before a military tribunal …

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. you don’t gather intel by killing people with a damn drone strike . You then end up with idiotic stuff like this , where innocent people get killed …

.. they can be a useful tool ..

.. but , they can also be misused ..

.. [link] to the blog news …

.. hopefully , they will be used wisely …

.. the best keys are the training , education ,  and experience of the officer himself / herself . That is the critical difference …

… this News Report is Damning [#Clinton Foundation finances]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 27th,2016

. it is several thousand words long . It is long [these days ] for a New York Slimes piece …

..so , what does it reveal ? quite a bit . It reveals an interlocking chain of you – scratch – my – back and I will – scratch yours antics of business dealings , and then of foundraising for the Clinonnoid Foundation . It also shows how Mr. Bill ends up getting much , much richer , even richer than he had in his post – presidential days already . So , is this the end of it ?? ..

.. [h/t — NYSlimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. not by a long shot . I suspect that Peter Schweizer has assembled quite an amount of research . Itt just not consist of resources , but targets , and other information that other media can use to verify information in his book and ffrom the Government Accountability Institutte . …

.. it will not be for the Slimes , the Washington ComPost , and FoxNews to use . Other media will be free to make use of it , if they so choose …

… Those Guys were That Sloppy [#national security][#POTUS e mails]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 27th,2016

.. thankfully , that we know of , only the unclassified e – mails were breached . No , only some of them were read …

.. still , that is a very serious security breach . The unclassified system still carries a great deal of White House correspondence , including a fair bit of that of Potus . sO , WHAT ARE THOSE KNUCKLEHEAds doing about it to fix the security breaches …

.. [h/t — NYSlimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. amazingly enough , this piece came up n the New York Slimes . At least some parts of the slimes still are working on something resembling a news product …

… Why do the Arabs Distrust His Lordship [#lack of faith]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 26th,2016

.. simple .

.. they do not believe that POTUS is a man of his word . They do not believe that when the chips are down , that POTUS will have their backs when they need it …

.. [h/t — nypost.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column …

.. in addition , they think that he is trying to turn the US towards Iran , and away from them . Because of it , they think that they have to take care of themselves …

… What I Think : Executive Amnesty [#Presidential Acts]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 26th,2016

.. before , I referred to the Presidential act to eliminate the legal liability ..

.. this post is something else …

.. this adds on to what POTUS is proposing to do with his ” Executive Amnesty ” plan …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. what POTUS is proposing to do , in addition to eliminating the legal liability of an individual illegal immigrant , is 1000% illegal and unconstitutional …

.. why ?? ..

.. [-] there is no authorization in the law for the programs that he has created [such as D.A.C.A.] , or others that he wants to create …

.. [-] any funds handled by the government are by definition , federal funds . It does not matter whether they are gathered and collected by taxes or fees …

.. [-] in addition , those fees are also not authorized by law , either …

.. [-] Presidents have explicit and implicit authority in the Constitution . Beyond those powers , however , their powers are extremely limited . Their job is to carry out the laws ” faithfully ” that are passed by Congress and signed by him / her …

… Technology is Lowering [#barriers to entry]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 26th,2016

.. let the fun begin …

.. if anyone thought that the 1990s or the Aughts were fun times for tech causing deregulation , watch what is going on now …

.. [h/t — hotAir.com]…
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. the use of the ride – share services [there will be more to come , to be sure] has lowered what in business is called ” barriers to entry ” to completion . most of those are financial , others are legal , more of them regulatory …

.. what is going on with the cabbies in D.C. is a riot . Those knuckleheads in the greater D.C. area are getting an education in many ways in which the market , especially the free market , works . With tech allowing for evolution , or , in this case , a revolution , the politicos [federal , state , local] cannot ignore it …

.. the cabbies themselves are going to see what is going on , and move to the free market , whether the politicos like it or not . There will be problems and growing pains , to be sure . There always are , with the free market , as it continues to evolve . But , it will evolve , one way or another …

.. good for them !! ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 25th,2016

… The Disgrace of an Intelligence Scandal [#I.S.I.S.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 25th,2016

.. Steve Hayes really nailed it on this one ..

.. given the actions of the ObamaCraps , it has happened before . Yes , with Al Qaeda . Al Qaeda was beginning to rise up again , and the ObamaCraps did not want that king – sized fact getting known to the public . How did they do it ?? ..

.. by manipulating and crafting the intel to fit their own readily – designed narrative . A surprise ? ..

.. [h/t — TWS.com]..
.. [link] to the blog article ..

.. not really , given this crowd . It seems that most every administration does it to a limited extent . But doing it like this during the Age of Obama ? Outrageous ! …

.. I.S.I.L. is far more of a threat than anyone has realized . They have an economic base of support on which to draw on for financial and logistical support . Worse is the abundance of fighters from two effectively ” failed ” states [Syria & Iraq] upon which to assemble an armed force . Even worse yet is the failure of the Iraqi army to assemble a fighting force that will really fight . They flee the field and abandon their weapons . It givens I.S.I.L. an bounty of modern arms on which to use . So there is ample reason to fear I.S.I.L. ….

… Now His Lordship realizes that He has F-ed Up [#Israel relations]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 25th,2016

.. evidently , somebody at the ObamaCrap White House is realizing that going to war with PM Bibi Netanyahu may not have been such a great idea …

.. it may have assuaged POTUS ‘ NEED TO PISS ALL OVER bIBI . but , those actions have consequences . Serious consequences . Especically for the DemoCrap party back home . The DemoCraps must now realize that the DemoCraps are starting to really pay a price for his actions on the world stage …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. The jewish vote is now steadily changing , and in a conservative direction . The REform jewish population is growning at a very slow rate . The Conservative branch of Judiaism is becoming somewhat more moderate , especially with the increasing influence of conservatives …

.. the big effect comes from the Orthodox and the Ultra – Orthodox . They are almost uniformly [these days] conservative and GOP – leaning , or they are out – and – out partisan Republicans . They are also growing extremely rapidly . Their numbers area steadily changing the political dynamic in the jewish community , and that has the DemoCraps deeply worried …

.. the jewish vote is concentratedprincipally in a few states . Because of it , their numbers have an outsize infounce on those states ‘politics . In Florida and Ohio a more conservative jewish vote would put both states solidly in the GOP column . In the case of other states [New York and New Jersey] , it would start to put a number of congressional districts in play , and eventually the states as a whole . Ditto for California …

… The Secret Service is doing What [#where it is located]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 25th,2016

.. I was watching the O ‘ Reilly Factor the other night , and Bill was hot on the mounting Secret Service scandal regarding the President , the First Family , and its protection …

.. I have lost a great deal of respect for the guy . I still have some of it , though , and I highly doubt that I will lose it . Barack Obama is still my President , and his protection , and that of his family [as well as high government officials] is an important function of the U.S. Secret Service .

.. Ladies and Gentleman , you need to tend to your knitting . Quit screwing around with all of this political correct bull[bleep] . This sctuff does the agency and the country no good , not one bit of good at all ….

.. Also , I learned from Bill that , quite a few years ago , that the Secret Service as an agency was moved from the Department of the Treasury to the Department of Homeland Security . Why ? IN the D.H.S. , the U.S.S.S. is just a part of a bureaucracy . At Treasury , the Service is treated with the respect and the special nature that it deserves . Ergo , Congress needs to act …

.. Congress needs to thoroughly investigate this p.c. culture at this agency . This political correctness culture is going to get someone killed , possibly even a government official or even possibly a President . God in heaven help us if that were to happen . Also , confine the service to its law enforcement and person protection missions . Nothing else . I strongly suspect that other things are going on in the Secret Service that we in the public have not been told about or have not learned about . Take them out . Junk them . Get them out , for god ‘ s sake ….

… the Clintonoids made a Serious Mistake [#Clinton Foundation tax returns]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 25th,2016

.. the I.R.S. will allow for some errors . Not for major errors ..

.. gifts from US government entities [localities , counties , states , & the feds] are countable as government grants . Those from overseas are not . Those are gifts , no matter what the government they are received from ..

.. [h/t — m.Reuters.com]..
.. [link] to the wire news report …

.. so , the Clinton Foundation has a serious tax problem . It is not just a matter of how these items are reported . It is clearly a matter of how they are supposed to be taxed . Even for a non – profit , some items are taxed ….

.. especially if they are being used as a tax dodge for items that are more properly classified as personal items [earned income or unearned income] to the principles of the foundation . They cannot just use the proceeds of the foundation to enrich themselves …

.. especially when one of the principals is a public servant [ie , Miz Hillary]…

-… The ObamaCraps are learning a Hard Lesson [#France]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 24th,2016

.. France is an ally , but it will act in its own national interests .

.. France still fashions itself as a great power . They are a permanent member of the U.N. security cOUNCIL . More than that , they hold a veto on the council . So France still carries a great deal influence , even more than before …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. also , they are being reminded of another — that France has no trouble with pissing off the United States when it suits their interests …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 24th,2016

.. there is waaay to much documentation that Peter Schweizer and his team has pulled together for thE Clintonoids to even think of deflecting these attacks on Schweizer …

.. [h/t — NYslimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. so , she is going to have to answer questions . Questions that she is not going to want to answer . And it will not be a one – off sessions of answering questions , either . Those questions will keep popping up , again and again …

… Nice Going , Andrew [#Cuomo]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 24th,2016

.. even your father [the late Mario Cuomo] would not have done something this stupid …

.. I have seen these commercials for Start Up New York all the time . They are damned obnoxious . But , are they ever damned expensive …

.. Cuomo directed more than $1.5 billion to the Greater Buffalo area . Yeah , there are a great deal of schools and universities in or near there . Also , he redirected another $1.5 billion into other areas of upstate New York . So , what was the effect ? …

.. [h/t — CrainsNewYork.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. how much ? a grand total of 76 jobs last year [in 2014] . Yeah , you heard it right … just 76 jobs created … At what cost ? … at about $13 million a job …

.. thus is the public sector … wasting tons of tax money on a boondoogle …

— p.s. — in case you were wondering ? — it was released in a Friday news dump … but in this case , it was done on Good Friday of Holy Week … it figures …

… Earth to I.R.S. — You Have a Problem [#F.O.I.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 23rd,2016

.. the I.R.S. may think that it is above it all . However , it is not …

.. the I.R.S. received an F.O.I.A. request for documents . They are public documents , not private ones related to anyone ‘ s tax file . So , Infernal Service , you guys and gals have a problem …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. the documents are already in the public domain . They relate to a ” sue and settle ” stunt that the Infernal Service pulled with the radicals from the Freedom from Religion Foundation . They did that so the loonie lefties could get their way , and try to keep the information out of the public eye . Fat chance …

.. uh , guys . That court settlement is public record . So those documents are of the public record . So the I.R.S. is subject to the Freedom of Information Act , and must respond to the requests of the A.D.F and Judicial Watch …

… This Time the Government Got Caught [#sue and settle racket]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 23rd,2016

.. yeah , you heard it right .

.. it is fiendishly simple . The US government (currently in the thrall of the radical left) is sued by a so – called friendly interest group . Normally , the Government is required to go thru public comment and evaluation periods before enacting a regulation . Not with this . The ” sue and settle ” technique allows the government to circumvent this process . As a result , they get their desired result under the table , and enrich their interest group friends in the process …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the article …

.. Neat , huh ?! ..

.. it is unethical , and , I believe , illegal . now thatit is out in the open , it is either useless , or is open to legal challenge , and to destruction …

.. weakness shows danger . It also can beget miscalculation . If one side or the other is not very , very careful , then there can be , at the very least , a diplomatic incident . It could be worse , though … Much worse …

.. it could lead [however accidently] to war …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 20th,2016

.. it appears not ..

.. in a surprising 7 – 3 decision at the D.C. Appeals Circuit , the E.E.O.C. was told to take its ” disparate impact ” theory of legal interpretation , and go home and stuff it in the cushion ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. E.E.O.C. wanted to apply disparate impact to employers ‘ use of criminal background checks . What they tried to argue was that the use of this had an undue [or disparate] impact on minorities [blacks and Hispanics] ..

.. so what did the D.C. Circuit tell them ?? Go stuff it .. not only that , but it slapped the E.E.O.C. with a levy of $4 million in legal fees for those of the attornyies of the affected businesses …
