… Tammy Duckworth was Screwed [#pregnancy]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 26th,2014

.. literally ..

.. Representative Duckworth is pregnant . Normally that is no big whoopee . she is an ultraliberal DemoCrap . Her politics are about as liberal as mine are conservative …

.. but , she is a war heroine …

.. she has served our country honorably , and lost parts of 2 legs in her combat service . She fought bravely , and with combat decorations . She worked her butt off to get back into politics . It took time , but she did do it …

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

.. Congresswoman Duckworth is unable to travel for the remaining months of her pregnancy . As a result , she is pinned back home in the Chicagoland suburban area where her district is located . She cannot right now travel to Fantasyland on the Potomac …

.. so , it should be within caucus rules [or , to make an exception] to allow Duckworth to vote by proxy in caucus leadership elections and other affairs . Except the House DemoCrap leadership is not allowing her to do so …

.. they liberally [how else?!?!] throw around the ” War on Women ” tag at the GOP . Then they pull a grotesque stunt like this on one of their own ?? …

.. what a bunch of goddamn hypocrites !! …

… The ” Supremes ” Intervene [#US Supreme Court] [#Ohio voting case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 25th,2014

.. it turns my planned series of posts on the election law case in my home state of Ohio inside out and upside down …

.. oh well …

.. the US Supreme Court intervened in the white hot Voting Right act case here in the Buckeye State . Previously , a radical activist [Clintonista] overturned the work of the Ohio legislature and the Ohio Secretary of State , Jon Husted . Their work would have trimmed back some of the unnecessary extra early voting time in my home state . It wwould also eliminated what has come to be called the ” Golden ” week . That ” Golden week has allowed people to register to vote , and then to immediately cast their vote vote , all in the same motion ….

..now , the work of the legislature and SecState Husted are back on , at least for this election , I believe …

.. [h/t — ScotusBlog.com]..
.. [link] to the court case post …

.. now comes more legal brawling , sure to come . The state of Ohio now has to formally apply for what is known as ” certiorari ” before the Court . There is no guarantee , though that what is called ” cert ” will be granted . However , my guess is that , unless there is a total screwup on the cert petition , it will be granted …

–[update]– cert (certiorari) has been granted . I am not sure whether it is for this term , but I  would not be surprised if it were for this term  . A case like this one is one that is likely to be decided in June , without question . My guess is that there  are at least 5 firm votes [more than likely , 6] to overturn the antics of the two lower courts [DC judge Economous and the 6th  Circuit panel  (all loonie lefties)] on their disparate impact arguments …

… POTUS should Understand [#SecDef firing]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 25th,2014

.. well , Chuck Hagel got canned today ..

.. it was couched in the usual political pablum , but it was plain and simple …

.. the SecDef was kicked out the Door …

.. evidently , POTUS wants a compliant and pliant SecDef in the job . Well , there is no Soap to that . It is the nature of the job …

.. you are dealing with 5 military services [including the Coast Guard] . Then , the mass of civilian weenies overseeing the armed services . Then , mix in the nature of interservice rivalries …

.. then , also [as Ike noted] , the civilian – military complex . Anyone worth their salt in the job is going to be a strong personality in their own right . To deal with all of that , they must be so . The ObamaCraps expect a pliant SecDef ?? …

.. they have to be nuts …

.. even though , technically , His Lordship ‘ s action would not apply to her …

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

.. as I said before , this will be only the beginning . This abuse of power by POTUS will inspire others to come . They will believe that they will be covered by a future amnesty . Given our country ‘ s recent history , they would likely be proven right …

… A BlowTorch Job , by His Standards [#Ross Douthat]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 24th,2014

.. yea , I am quoting an opinion writer at the NYSlimes ..

.. Douthat is , supposedly , the Slimes ‘ resident ” conservative . ” He is , to be honest , far from that …

.. He is more like a moderate liberal than any kind of conservative . Which makes his column on POTUS ‘ Executive Amnesty moves that much stronger …

.. [h/t — NYSlimes.com]..
.. [link] to the opinion column ..

.. Douthat takes no prisoners . He tears into His Lordship severely , ripping into him multiple times . He really lets him have it , and condemns him for his actions …

.. which makes it all the more stunning …

.. a lengthy quote from the op – ed is very telling …

This argument was specious before; now it looks ridiculous. The election just past was not, of course, a formal referendum on the president’s proposed amnesty, but it was conducted with the promise of unilateral action in the background, and with immigration as one of the more hotly debated issues. The result was a devastating defeat for Obama and his party, and most polling on unilateral action is pretty terrible for the president.

Which is why the thinking liberal’s move, if this action goes forward, will be to invoke structural forces, flaws inherent in our constitutional order, to justify Obama’s unilateralism. This won’t be a completely fallacious argument: Presidential systems like ours have a long record, especially in Latin America, of producing standoffs between executive and legislative branches, which tends to make executive power grabs more likely. In the United States this tendency has been less dangerous — our imperial presidency has grown on us gradually; the worst overreaches have often been rolled back. But we do seem to be in an era whose various forces — our open-ended post-9/11 wars, the ideological uniformity of the parties — are making a kind of creeping caudillismo more likely.

But if that evil must come, woe to the president who chooses it. And make no mistake, the president is free to choose. No immediate crisis forces his hand; no doom awaits the country if he waits. He once campaigned on constitutionalism and executive restraint; he once abjured exactly this power. There is still time for him to respect the limits of his office, the lines of authority established by the Constitution, the outcome of the last election.

Or he can choose the power grab, and the accompanying disgrace.

… The GOP CounterAttack is forming Up [#exec amnesty battle]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 22nd,2014

.. basically , it is to get into the new Congress , ..

.. pass appropriations bills in regular order , and then ..

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

.. the political weapon of choice is in this case called an appropriations rider . A rider is attached to an appropriations bill , placing a limit and  / or prohibition on the POTUS and the Cabinet department in question covered by the bill . The current prohibition on the closure of the Detainee Facility [Defense Bill] is an example of this prohibition . The prohibition covers the entire government , so the Administration cannot circumvent the rider via another bill . Thus , the ObamaCraps political stunt , in theory , would be stopped , if it were not vetoed first ….

.. Congress would then deal with the individual appropriations bill for the Department of Homeland Security . You may ask , why ? It is the cabinet department where the former parts of the old I.N.S. are located [in two or three pieces]…

.. then , there will be a minor shutdown battle over D.H.S. . The media damage will likely be minimal , because there are virtually no things that POTUS and his flunkies can close down , and the credibility of POTUS & Co. is virtually shot to hell in a handbasket …

… What do I Think in Darren Wilson ‘ s Case ?!?! [#grand jury decision]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 21st,2014

.. so , what do I think ? …

.. it is based upon what I have seen , what I have written [here and elsewhere] , what I have watched , and other things …

.. of this , I can be fairly sure …

.. Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson will not , repeat , NOT , be indicted for murder …

.. [h/t — en.Wikipedia.org]..
.. [link] to the Wikipedia article …

.. at the worst , I believe that Darren Wilson will be indicted for manslaughter . He could be indicted for voluntary manslaughter , but I highly doubt that .. voluntary manslaughter requires malice , or intent beforehand ..

.. at the worst , depending upon how the case is presented to the grand jury , Officer Wilson may well be indicted for involuntary manslaughter . Given that Michael Brown was the aggressor , and attacked Wilson in his cruiser , the law will give Wilson a certain amount of latitude in his response to Brown …

.. however , it does not give him carte blanche . He can employ reasonable force to bring Michael Brown to justice , but only that . He may well have crossed the line , but only barely . A judgement of ” no true bill , ” or no indictment of the officer , thus clearing him , also would not surprise me …

.. given all of the conflicting statements , and the lack of scientific evidence , other than that of what happened to Brown and Wilson directly , it makes it virtually impossible to charge Wilson with murder . The same situation makes it very difficult , but not impossible , to charge him with voluntary manslaughter …

.. that is what I think …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 20th,2014

.. the insult ” cracker ” is not a term of endearment , Charlie ..

.. you should know that , you damn idiot ..

charlie rangel

.. the term ” cracker ” is an insult . To a white person , in particular in the South , the term is meant as a severe insult . Roughly , it is almost as nasty to a white person as the ” n ” word is to a black person …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. Charlie Rangel is supposedly a good student of history …. evidently , I was mistaken ….

… Go , Rush , Go [#DCCC lawsuit]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 19th,2014

.. what in God ‘ s name would provoke the MahaRushie to go to war with a political committee ..

.. plenty …. the DCCC conducted a fundraising campaign on a audio / visual series of clips , ones that were taken out of context …

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

.. I would not advise elRushbo to go into this lightly . Rush Limbaugh is a serious man , with one hell of a good reputation . It is one that the DCCC tried to slander and defame by doing what they did …

.. Rush is in every sense of the word a public figure . However , those circumstances apply to libel and slander cases , not to defamation . They might apply , tangentially , but it does allow the DCCC to do whatever they want to whoever they want …

… A Huge Loss for Gun Controllers [#Arizona]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 19th,2014

.. Martha McSally is winning in Arizona ..

.. make it , she is likely to win . the turf that is out is rural Az , her turf . The votes that are still out are because of a malfunctioning ballot machine . It is a master one , one that counts early ballots …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. so , yes , the machine is important , and yes , the ballots [about 3,300 of them] are more likely to favour her , rather than her opponent , Congresscritter Ron Barber …

.. Barber is a former staffer of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords [D-Az] . When she resigned , after her tragic gunshooting , she encouraged Barber to run in her place . Barber did , and won …

.. Barber and McSally faced off in 2012 . Barber did win , but barely . So , you could have figured on a rematch … boy , oh boy , did they ever …

.. this district is one that is slowly trending GOP . So , McSally should be able to hold it for the near future …

.. remember Barack Obama in 2007 .

.. she and every other DemoCrap will have the shoe on the other foot , this time . Only , this time , they will have to defend the actions and policies of an unpopular DemoCrap President [Obama] in 2016 . So , they have to either put up or shut up …

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

.. Manchin and the others are only going to put up with the obstructionist tactics of Reid and the liberals for so long . After a while , Manchin [in the lead] and possibly others form coalitions with the GOP , and possibly even to switch parties …
