… Israel is in This for the Long Term [#IDF Op defensive edge]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 28th,2014

.. the most important reason ..

.. where the Prime Minister of Israel would deal with the President of the United States on at least a civil basis , take his / her phone calls , and be subject even to some coercion , in the case with POTUS and Bibi , no way …

.. Obama only controls one chamber of Congress , and that is done clumsily by Dingy Harry Reid . When (I believe) the Dems get their buts kicked in November , Congress will be entirely in GOP hands …. it will then free up a large number of senior members of the Dem caucus to vote more freely …

.. Obama ‘ s powers of coercion are limited , and are principally limited to emergency situations . Even then , if word got out that POTUS tried to ” screw ” with Israel in an emergency situation , he would likely face ” the boot …. ”

.. more simply , these two men do not get along , do not like each other , and do not respect each other ….

.. it is even more the case from Obama to Bibi than it is from Bibi to Obama . Bibi knows that he has to deal with him , but only when he has to do so . Obama hates Bibi with a passion ….

… Now , the Granite State may be in Play [#NH] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 28th,2014

.. or , it just might be , according to this post …

.. [h/t — hotair.com]..
.. [link] to the poll results …

.. Scott Brown is now right on Jeanne Shaheen ‘ s heels . Worse for Shaheen , she is now under 50% , and she is thisclose to Brown …

.. this is a big surprise . Given previous poll results , I though that Shaheen was likely going to hold off Brown in this race . Maybe not …

.. I would think that WMUR [a big TV station in New Hampshire] would have double – checked the results on this one . I suspect that the Manchester Union – Leader and other media are going to run follow – up polls to see if this is an outlier …. or a trend …

.. the link has some pretty entertaining and hard – hitting ads that have been up in Boston [broadcasting into NH] and in the Granite State itself …. also , Brown has been barnstorming the state , holding town halls all over the place . Shaheen ? Not one …

.. also , Brown has been hammering away on immigration . If these polling results are confirmed , it will get a lot of people ‘ s attention . Especially in the Obama White House . His possible [[read : likely] Executive Amnesty may not be all that popular , especially with the flood of border kids this year , and possibly next …

… Megyn Kelly is Right ! [#blasting Mo. Governor Nixon]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 27th,2014

.. she is spot – on right …

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

.. she made the point that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was extraordinary and highly irresponsible in making the comments that he did in urging a ” vigorous prosecution . ” …

.. A grand jury investigates , first , what happened . Then , once one is fairly sure that they have presented a sufficient case , then the prosecutor asks the grand jury to hand up an indictment , or not . They may not . They can vote a ” True Bill ” [an indictment] on the proposed charges , or ” no True Bill , ” thus clearing an individual …

.. that is something that many people do not understand . They understand the trial court process . But , they do not understand the grand jury process , or what it is supposed to do , or achieve …

… Congratulations , Dan Sullivan [#US Senate]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 27th,2014

.. you just may well be the next US Senator from Alaska …

.. Mark Begich ‘ s win in 2008 was a fluke . Yes , he was the 2 – term mayor of Anchorage . However , normally , challenging the senior US Senator of the GOP [Ted Stevens] is a fools ‘ errand . However , the US Justice Department and the US Atty went wild …

.. the US Atty sought and received an indictment of Stevens and a friend for corruption . The indictment was flimsy , but the timing was worse . It was done deliberately during the 2008 campaign year , in order to derail Stevens ‘ re – election campaign . Which it did …

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

.. even so , Begich barely won , by a margin of a few thousand votes . Stevens ‘ conviction was thrown out by a federal judge , and the proposed re – trial was overruled [amazingly so] by the Department of InJustice . Unfortnuately , Ted Stevens is no longer with us . He died in a plane crash in the fall of 2010 …

.. Dan Sullivan is the former 1 – term AG of Alaska . He is a long – time public servant , as well as a USMC veteran . He should have a good chance at unseating Begich , because Begich is polling well below 50% in most polls …

.. Good luck , Dan !! …

… Amazing [#Wash ComPost Ed Board]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 26th,2014

.. on this issue , I actually agree with these guys …

.. at least in part …

.. I do not agree with the gratuitous slaps at the GOP . They are uncalled for . Dingy Harry Reid is the real serious idiot in this situation . He just will not let the Senate work at all , much less let anyone , even his own party , amend any legislation at all . The only legislation that gets ” marked up ” on the Senate floor is what good ol ‘ Dingy Harry wants done ; no one else …

.. [h/t — WashingtonComPost.com(Editorial)]..
.. [link] to the Editorial opinion …

.. however , even with the ” slow as molasses ” antics of Congress , it does not allow or entitle His Lordship to behave like Julius Caesar . He is just the head of the executive branch . He is supposed to faithfully obey his constitutional oath . He is not supposed to write or rewrite bills on his own , no matter what the excuse or reason …

… Good For You , Ethel Kennedy ! [#ice bucket challenge]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 26th,2014

.. and shame on you , the First Wuss [Barack Obama]…

.. the Ice Bucket Challenge is an original and imaginative challenge for the folks for A.L.S. [Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis]… it is far better known as Lou Gehrig ‘ s Disease , after the famed and late baseball star , who was tragically struck down by A.L.S. in 1941 …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the video segment …

.. Ethel Kennedy [Bobby ‘ s widow] is now 86 . So , for her , doing the challenge is not easy . But , guess what ? She did it anyway …. and , knowing her , she made a generous (and private) donation to the Challenge ….

.. she evidently nominated … POTUS ! … He wimped out . His donation ?? …. just $100 …. how cheap …

.. immigration law is a purely held and solely in the hands of Congress , not the Executive Branch . His Lordship cannot rewrite the immigration law to suit his own whims ….

… It is You & POTUS who are the Bigots , Mr A. G. …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 23rd,2014

.. we deal with people on the level .

.. we deal with them as individuals ..

.. we do not ignore one ‘ s race , Mr. Attorney General . We also do not obsess on it , either .

.. [h/t — theHill]..
.. [link] to the article ..

.. it is you and POTUS who are obsessed with race . You see it in people ‘ s actions and reactions anywhere and everywhere . To accuse others of it is wrong , and it is the height of bias and bigotry …

.. so , shut up and resign . While you are at it , take POTUS with you …

… This is Not a Federal Case , Gents [#Ferguson , Mo]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 22nd,2014

.. the local folks [Ferguson city and St Louis County] are investigating what has happened and what is happening in the incident …

.. the Department of InJustice does not need to stick its nose into the situation ..

.. [h/t –– Ap.org]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. if it were a violation of a young man ‘ s civil rights , then it becomes a federal case . If the local folks clearly show that they cannot investigate the case , and decide to hand it off , then it becomes a federal case …

.. not until then ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 21st,2014

.. you have to go after them , no matter what their skin colour may be …

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

.. you do not have disparate impact in justice ; you have justice , that is colourblind . That is why the symbol of the justice system has blinders over her eyes . You do justice to everyone ….

.. It does not mean you will find someone guilty or innocent , liable or not liable [in a civil action] . That one receives their shot at justice is the idea , not the result …

.. thank you , Don Lemon ! …

… i have heard that Politics is a Blood Sport [#Texas — Perry case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 21st,2014

.. but this is outrageous …

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

.. an executive has a great deal of latitude in running their office . That includes the exercise of the veto power . Some states circumscribe this power a bit , but they place the policing power of statewide people in hands other than that of a local yokel …

.. the policing of the conduct of state – wide officials belongs with either an appointed ethics commission , or , much better yet , in the hands of elected official , usually in most states , an attorney general . It should be made part of their responsibilities of their office …

..However , even state AGs should not be allowed to run wild . They can abuse their powers as well . Many DemoCrap AGs have gotten into the habit of collaborating to sue many people in the private sector . AGs have some regulatory power , but only that created by state law . They should not and do not have the power to run wild on their own , especially turning loose private – sector lawyers [ what I call plaintiff bar extortionists] for contingency – fee arrangements …

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. it is just as important for the city to have going businesses , and to protect them . When you have looters running wild , and the young behaving like animals , things are likely to get a lot worse in Ferguson , before they get better …

.. unfortunately , the city of Ferguson and Greater St. Louis are going to have to learn some hard lessons before both recover …

.. the big problem is with new Turkish President Erdogan . Does he really want a shooting war with Israel ? He is planning to send a part of his country ‘ s navy as an escort . Doing so with a publically declared ” cordon sanitaire ” is , if I remember right , an act of war …

.. I wonder about the condition of the Turkish military . Will they really follow the orders of this jackass , or might there be more trouble to come ??

… Micheal Brown ‘ s Story gets More Interesting …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 20th,2014

.. what exactly did he do ? …

.. what exactly started the confrontation ? …

.. what led him to confront Officer Darren Wilson ?

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. Officer Wilson suffered a orbital blowout fracture of his eye . This is a serious injury , folks . In is the injury of one or more bones [more than one , most likely] in the eye socket . One ‘ s eyesight is a tender thing . Any injury directly to the eye , or to the eye socket is a serious matter …

.. how does that kind of injury happen ? Most likely , a fist punch , or , possibly even a glancing head butt could do it . Given Michael Brown ‘ s size and aggressiveness , it necessitated a firm response . Especially if there was a threat to Officer Wilson ‘ s life itself …
