.. Saudi Arabia , without a doubt . All they have to do is buy it from the Pakistanis . If needed , they can do it on their own , given time …

… Finally , a Veto Override [#JASTA][#His Lordship] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 29th,2016

.. the House and the Senate the other day passed into law the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act , or JASTA , over POTUS ‘ veto .

.. what this bill does is simple . It slightly lowers the curtain of the doctrine of sovereign immunity to allow victims of 9/11 to be able to act to prove in court against a foreign soverign state , i.e. Saudi Arabia . Normaly , sovrerign immunity would protect the Saudis against this . JASTA lowers that curtain just slightly ..

… The ” Black Lives Matter ” Movement will have a Strong Effect on Our Politics [#radical activism]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 28th,2016

.. I originally though that this ” movement ” would soon spend its self out and lose steam . To be honest , I was wrong …

.. now is going to be what is the effect that this so – called ” movement is going to have on our body politic …

.. the butt – kissing and toadying that the DemoCraps are doing to the BLM crowd is a disgrace . They look extremely weak in the face of revolutionary activism from folks that may well be being financed in part by uberLeft radicals such as George Soros …

.. [h/t — Liveleak.com]..

.. it will be very interesting to see how the Black Community in general reacts . Somehow I do not think or feel that the average Black voter cares all that much for these nuts . They may not like the GOP all that much , either , but they also are a great deal more moderate and conservative than the older generations . So the door is effectively now open to the GOP . Hopefully the GOP will be wise enough to seize the opportunity …

… Sid the Snake , you struck again [#Sidney Blumenthal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 27th,2016

.. Blumenthal is about as notorious a Clintonoid loyalist as you will find . Yes , he is that bad . But doing this kind of dirty work ?? ..

.. he must think that he has some type of criminal ” shield ” from prosecution . What he is doing [being Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside , at the same time] is rife with criminal and civil conflicts of interest …

.. how ?

.. he can do outside intel work for whoever he wants , and whenever he wants . What Miz Hillary did , though , was to put Sid the Snake on the payroll via the Clinton Foundation . Doing so transforms the Clintonoid Foundation in what is , in effect , a R.I.C.O. [a criminal enterprise]..

.. well , until now , former President Dubya has not said yankee doodle about anything [politics and / or policy] about His Lordship . Well , that has now changed …

.. Dubya made a speech to a gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition the other night . He should have realized that anything , especially that coming from the mouth of aformer President , would make news . Boy , oh boy , did it ever …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..

.. [link] to the blog article …

.. Dubya did not mince words . He feels that POTUS ‘ Iran policy is a grievous mistake . It takes President Rouhani as an actual president , when the real power lies elsewhere . Also , the idea that sanctions can ” snapback ” is hardly a realistic possibility , especially given the antics of the U.N. . It was not all that he said …

… The ObamaCrap White House is Unbelievable Petty [#comments to Bibi]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 27th,2016

.. it sure took the ObamaCraps long enough to congratulate Bibi on his election victory . However , it was worse ..

.. it was the ultimate in hypocrisy . Press Secretary JoshBoy Earnest says that ” words matter . ” No kidding …

.. the behavior of the ObamaCraps has been an absolute disgrace . The treatment of an ally in this matter is outrageous . Other administrations have not exactly been buddy buddy with Israeli PMs . But with this administration , it is far beyond that ..

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

.. these idiots actually want to push Bibi out the door . Well , they failed . They wanted a complaint Israeli PM . Well , they do not now have one . PM Bibi has every reason to be even more obstinate than before , thus spiting the ObamaCraps . Even the Europeans were civil . They openly congratulated Bibi , without any of the added vitrol . Not the ObamaCraps …

.. The Administrations that now follow His Lordship will have an example of what not to do , and how not to treat an ally . They do not have to like PM Bibi , Issac Hertzog , or any other Israeli leader . They do have to live with them and deal with them . Even the Dems in Congress realize how stupid and petty the obamaCraps have been …

State , but who also sits in D.C.] ripped the city , the City Council , the Mayor (Vincent Gray) and Congress a brand new one . As he put it , people have a right to have a gun in D.C. …

.. a ” may issue ” bill will not cut it . It leaves far too much discretion over people ‘ s constitutional rights in the hands of the D.C. City Government . It belongs with the people , not the bureaucracy …

.. the judge could impose a ” bill , ” or he could request Congress to step in . The D.C. City Government may not get the message . Someone will have to bang them over the head to get it to them …

.. i would not bet against it ..

.. the ObamaCraps are incredibly stupid . They think that they can waive a magic wand and create economic demand . They also think that they can do the same and create jobs . Economies just do not work that way …

.. you need to create investment . It is not just that , though . You have to create the environment for investment to flourish . Companies will invest and continue to create growth when there is good reason to do so . When there is not , and when the environment is negative towards investment , they will not do so ..

.. in a hacked email [leaked by DCLeaks.com] , Powell made it clear that he did dnot want to be tied  in to the Clinton email situation and that damn email server . He even had to throw something of a hissy fit at a social occasion in the Hamptons to make Bill Clinton get the message ..

… The Senate Battle — Indiana [#GOP]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 21st,2016

.. originally , I thought that this race was a goner . Evan Bayh running for his old Senate seat would make for a difficult contest . However , this one has become a real race ..

.. Relatively unknown GOP Congressman Todd Young has taken up the cudgel to run against Bayh . Now he has a real chance of winning ..

.. Young has caught up to Bayh , only trailing by 3 points . It has taken a lot of effort and lifting [and $$] , but it is now a fight worth making ..

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

.. Trump should win Indiana easily . He did so in the primaries . Doing so in the General will help the GOP in the Governor ‘ s race as well [where Mike Pence is vacating his office to run for VP] and definitely in the Senate race ..

.. good luck , Todd Young !! ..

.. the federal judge has only order what is known as a ” legal interrogaty . ” Basically , it is a set of questions to be answered by the depondent [Miz HIllary] . The important thing that is that is to be done under oath ..

.. somehow , even being in the Nation ‘ s capital , the D.C. City Council seems to have not gotten the message …t

.. we have constitutional protections to religious freedom [the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights , duh !]…

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news account …

.. what is the City Council doing ? They are trying to force any person or organization [whether they be for – profit or non – profit] to bend to their legal will . Specifically , they want these groups to adopt standards related to sexual orientation in legal and other matters …

.. it repeals an exemption that existed in law for many decades . Now , the city ‘ s Human Rights Act will control affairs , which is even more sweeping an issue regarding sexual orientation . No , bad move . It should not happen . It must not happen . Congress must step in …

.. Congress has a clear power in the Constitution as regards to the government of the Nation ‘ s Seat of Government . Much of the time , especially with Home Rule , Congress stays out of the way . However , there are times that Congress either needs to or must step in . In this case , Congress must step in , whether POTUS likes it or not ….

…it must do so in this case , and edit D.C. law to ensure that individuals and organizations rights are protected in the nation ‘ s capital . It may end up wrapping in gun rights , as regards Palmer v DC as well , if the D.C. City Council does not get its act together and follow the Home Rule Act , as well as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights ….

— [update] — right now , this one is tied up in court . it will be for  some time , though …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 20th,2016

.. the Senate Dems [and the Dems , in general] desperately want to regain control of the U.S. Senate . Who would not ? ..

.. in 2016 it will likely be the best time for the Dems in a decade . After that , in 2018 and 2020 , the numbers reverse severely , and then the Dem #s are likely to sink for a very , very long time ..

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

.. [-] Nevada — the Silver State is swinging fairly steadily to the right . The GOP now controls all of the statewide offices in Reno , except Dingy Harry Reid ‘ s current Senate Senate . Now good ol ‘ Dingy is retiring , and this seat is likely to end up in OGP hands …

.. [-] Ohio — Rob Portman is up for his first re – election . he does have a big advantage , though . Ohio is a Red state , one that is likely to be REd in the Presidential campgin . Even better ..

.. the DummyCraps are putting up former Governor reject Terrible Ted Strickland to run against him . Strickland is not a good campaigner , and faces a primary , first . So , Teddy Boy is likely to come out of the primary as damaged goods , and with a low bank account ..

.. [-] Illinois — this one is the Dems best hope . If the Dems cannot win this seat , especially from the rapidly recovering Mark Kirk , then they can forget about getting the Senate back at all …

.. [-]Pennsylvania — Pat Toomey is up . but , who are the Dems going to put up against him ? Joe Sestak ? No ! . The Dem Governor , Tom Wolf , is as about as popular as the AIDS virus . he is most likely to be a one – termer . the other most likely candidate , AG Kathleen Kane , is now looking at a reserved seat at the good ol ‘ Graybar Hotel [i.e. , jail] on corruption charges . Other than those two , the Dem bench is between thin and none ..
