Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 27th,2015

.. I really wonder …

.. [h/t — [no title]]…
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. the inside story of Ferguson , Mo has not been told . So much of the instigation of people in and around Ferguson was falsely created , in order to agitate for radical activism . The LameStream Media has not done its job to investigate the situation …

.. so , it will be very interesting to find out what Project Veritas has dug up …

… Arnaud de Borchgrave — A Memorial [#God Bless]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 21st,2015

.. Mr. de Borchgrave died on Sunday . He was 88 years old .

.. He was born in Belgium , but after his war service in the British Royal Navy , he became a longtime legendary journalist and war correspondent , interviewing many , many world figures , such as Churchill , de Gaulle , Meir , and Reagan ..

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

.. He was once a foreigner , but he became a fine American . By my estimation , he became one of the finest of Americans . His strengths were his dedication , his professionalism , his talent , and , most of all , his honesty and bluntness ..

.. May God Bless him and his family …

… What I expect — Yemen [#Saudi Arabia]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 18th,2015

.. I believe that the Saudis are going to come after the Yemenis .

.. not openly . No , they are not that stupid or foolish .

.. however , they have [I believe] many Shiite allies , even in Yemen . They obvious do not like what has happened in their country . They will want to act and return to power in Saa’na . But how ? …

… No , The Adults Cheated [#US Little League Title controversy]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 17th,2015

.. unfortunately , the kids in Chicago [the Jackie Robinson West group] are paying a very dear price ..

.. Little League groups play within established boundaries . Those rules are set by the higher – ups in the Little League organization in order to maintain competitive balance . It applies overseas , as well as here in the U.S. and the Western Hemisphere …

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

.. overseas and domestically , Little League teams have lost games and titles because of cheating . I cannot ever recall that it has been because of the kids , though . It is almost always the adults in charge that pull the ” dirty pool . ” Inevitably , they get called on the carpet for it , and the kids pay the price …

.. that really sucks , but those rules are there for a reason …

… Just a Thought [#Joint Meetings of Congress]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 15th,2015

.. yea , even with the First Jackass , only the current First Jackass can address a Joint Session of Congress .

.. considering what he has done , what he is doing , and the symbolism , boy , would it piss POTUS off …

… Brent Bozell is Right [#Brian Williams scandal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 15th,2015

.. NBC cannot really afford to bring back Williams as the anchor to NBC Nightly News ..

.. it is not the financial cost . The cost of Williams ‘ remaining contract is not all that much . It is the cost and the severe hit to the network ‘ s reputation ..

.. [h/t — m.Newsbusters.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post // video clips ..

.. I have to wonder , though — do they really care …

.. the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals came out with a dandy opinion , upholding the democratic process in the states , and the value of traditional marriage . Now , the US Supreme Court is going to have to take up the issue . They cannot avoid it …

… John Kitzhaber needs to Leave [#resignation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 13th,2015

.. Governor Kitz has made a colossal mess of things in Oregon .

.. what was he thinking ? Or , to be more accurate , what did he refuse to think about ? …

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

.. no , I am not a real big fan of the [Portland] Oregonian . They are most definitely LameStream Media – archtypes . However , in this case , they have put it out pretty well …

The questions about Kitzhaber’s judgment and competence ask themselves.  Is he so oblivious that he had no idea that campaign advisers were helping his girlfriend line up employment marked by ethical red flags? Is he really so clueless that he had no idea how much money Hayes collected through her fellowship, which would explain his apparently incomplete ethics filings? Or, alternatively, did he know and fail to act? Both possibilities are damning, and it’s difficult to imagine alternatives that are not.

Whether through gross inattention or complicity, Kitzhaber has broken faith with Oregonians. His career in Oregon politics is one of great accomplishment, but his past success does not excuse the mess he has made of the office with which Oregonians entrusted him.  He is now less a governor than a source of unending distraction. He can no longer lead Oregon effectively and should resign. His constituents deserve better.

… I would Be Shocked if Bibi is Not Re – Elected [#Israeli PM]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 13th,2015

.. Bibi is in good shape , vis-à-vis his coalition partners . He is likely to come out of the elections with a much stronger position within his philosophical coalition . So , when the jockeying begins , Bibi will be in a far better position to dictate terms …

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

.. both the Israeli Left [Labour , et al] are not in the best position to manuveur . Most of all , they do not have credible alternatives to be the key leaders [such as foreign minister , defense minister , and , above all ,  PM] . At a time like this , treid and true leadership is needed at the helm of the Ship of State …

… so What Comes First — Recall or Resignation ? [#Kitzhaber in Oregon]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 12th,2015

.. John Kitzhaber is in very deep trouble .

.. he is also under a great deal of pressure . His paramour is in serious legal trouble . He may well be , as well . The LameStream media has , for once , gotten off of its butt . They are coming after Kitzhaber with a vengeance …

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

.. they realize how foolish they were in endorsing and campaigning for John Kitzhaber ‘ s re – election . They certainly were not enthralled with Oregon businessman [and , former State House speaker] Dennis Richardson . But , Kitz made them look like a bunch of colossal horse ‘ s asses . They now want vengeance ..

.. now , the Oregonian [ the state ‘ s largest newspaper] has called for Kitzhaber to resign . He may well be the first of may DemoCraps to quit over this , I hope …

… Well , Brian Williams is Suspended [#NBC Nightly Snooze]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 12th,2015

.. and , to be honest , I do not expect him to be back in the anchor chair .

.. [h/t — DrudgeReport.com]..
.. [link] to the flash blog report …

.. Williams has done too much damage to his reputation as it is right now . He can probably remain as a correspondent for NBC News at one of its bureaus . But , will he want to ? ..

.. Williams may want to move to another network , such as FoxNews . There at another post [and , another location] , he can continue his career [if he wants]…

… Brian Williams is in Serious Trouble [#FibGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 11th,2015

.. and his career is at stake …

.. whether NBC News will do anything about is really open to question . Ever since Washington Bureau Chief Tim Russert died in 2008 , it seems that NBC news as a whole has been an aimless and colossal mess . Scandaer scandal . A distinct lack of professionalism . A cable channel [pMSNBC] that has run wild with ultra liberalism to plain old out and out communism …

.. [h/t — m.Newsbusters.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post news …

.. Now this . Williams has been caught in a pattern of out-and-out lying about a significant event in his professional career . He continued to lie about it in public appearances and interviews down through the years . Finally , a local newspaper finally does its homework , and breaks through the wheat and the chaff to break a blockbuster of a scoop ..

.. Should Williams resign ?!?! Maybe . Should he be fired ?!?! He should be , but likely will not be . I think that he should quit ….

… Now the Bough Breaks [#Kitzhaber scandal in Oregon]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 10th,2015

.. and the LameStream Media is finally getting off of its butt ..

.. Cilvia Hayes is in it up deep to her eyeballs . Not just that , to be honest . The scandal has dragged in Governor John Kitzhaber , as well …

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

.. the cronies created jobs with influence of the Governor in mind . Boy , oh boy was it ever blatant . it is not just that , however . It was done with the knowledge and understanding of Kitzhaber , as well ..

.. worse , it goes back well into last year . Many in the LameStream Media knew of the scandal , but did nothing . The Oregonian itself , for example , endorsed Kitzhaber for re – election as Governor , even while he [and his fiancée] were both under a cloud of suspicion for illegal acts [and impeachable offenses] . Then , nothing until after the election ..

.. these bastards were in the bag for the guy . Then he gets caught , especially by a local newspaper , and that paper blew the lid off of the scandal . It is about damn time …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 8th,2015

.. boy , did John Kitzhaber do it this time ! …

.. his paramour and common – law wife [and Oregon ‘ s first lady] Cilvia Hayes is in real serious moral and legal trouble . With it comes some severe political pressure on Governor Kitzhaber . To big question is , will John Kitzhaber be able to survive in office …

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

.. she has been running consulting deals , while acting as Oregon ‘ s first lady . Not only that , Kitzhaber ‘ s friends and allies have been creating the jobs to influence her [and him] . They also did so evidently at his direction …

… Bravo , Jeff Kyle [#Chris Kyle ‘ s brother]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 6th,2015

.. Sean Hannity recently hosted Jeff Kyle , brother of ” American Sniper ” author Chris Kyle , on his show . Jeff was a stand – in for his late brother [may God in Heaven Bless his soul] , and was defending his brother ‘ s work and his reputation ….

.. Chris ‘ rep had come under a cheap – shot attack by pseudo – film maker Michael Moore . Moore had libeled and slandered Chris for his actions as a Seal , his book , and the newly released movie , ” American Sniper , ” of the same name .

.. [h/t — Mediaite.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. Jeff did a beautiful job in defense of his brother . His defense of Chris started a Thermidorian reaction against Moore ‘ s cheap shots , and Moore was forced to both back down and apologize …

… O.K. , Mitt is Out [#Romney]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 5th,2015

.. that is not all that big a surprise …

.. remember , Ronaldus Magnus ran 3 different times [1968 , 1976 , and 1980] . Magnus helps build his ” buzz ” at the time by his radio commentaries that kept his name , reputation , and ideas fresh in the Forum of Ideas , as well as the media . So , when he ran [and won] in 1980 , he was ready …

.. Mitt Romney in 2016 was not . There was no ” Buzz . ” Many of his key supporters and fundraisers were either non – committal , or they were involved with another presidential campaign . So , they were not there for Mitt . So , no Buzz …

.. Now is the time of the ” Invisible Primary . ” It is a battle for ” Buzz , ” as much as it is for ideas , message , and , of course , $$$ . So , for the next 12 months , a whole lot of folks are going to be working their butts off , especially if they really have ” the fire in the belly . ” Maybe someone else may not have it …

.. besides , at this point in the 2008 Campaign cycle [early 2007] , who in the hell had ever heard of Barack Obama ? … Virtually nobody …

… the MahaRushie may be Right [#about Scott Walker]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 4th,2015

.. Scott Walker has some serious guts , er , balls , that is for sure ..

.. he has presenatted a solid political program for the betterment of Wisconsin . The voters of the state has elected him , time and again , and continue to believe in him . So , maybe his state is changing …

.. Wisconsin is no Blue state . At most , it is a White state , maybe even a ” Pink ” state . So , indeed , it is changing …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the MahaRushie ‘ s commentary …

.. maybe Walker will run for the GOP nomination for President in 2016 . It will be no easy task , that is for sure . But , with a good campaigner , and a good message , and a fair bit of luck , that candidate will have a decent chance of getting the nod . Scott Walker may well be that man ..

.. the DemoCraps have to be sweating bricks over Scott Walker . If Walker does happen to win the nomination , he would have an excellent chance to win the White House in 2016 . He could fairly well pick off a fair number of Blue states that the Dems usually carry , and put others into play . That would force the Dems to psend money where they cannot afford to do so …

… Diplomatic Faux – Pax [#Obama in India]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 4th,2015

.. can’t this idiot do anything right , for God ‘ s sake ..

.. our relations with india are important . India is the world ‘ s largest democracy , at over 1.3 billion people . It is also , by now , a first world power . It should have a seat on the U.N. Security Counsel , but , regrettably , it does not . So , India does carry quite a bit of diplomatic weight on the international stage …

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

.. so what does His Lordship do ? Commit a fairly significant faux pax in New Delhi while on a state visit . Nice one , stoopid ..

potus (india - chewing gum)

.. what did he do ? chew gum in public . Here in the U.S. , chewing gum in public is proper and accepted . So it is in most of the world . But in India , it is not , at least in polite company ..

.. so , once again , nice one , stooped ! …

… Bill Burton is a Crybaby [#NewsmaxTV]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 1st,2015

.. no , I have not had the pleasure or the choice of watching NewsmaxTV . I have not flow in recent years , and my cable system does not , as of yet , carry newsmaxTV . Maybe that will change , though …

.. what other companies and organizations choose to carry is their own choice …

.. which makes former ObamaCrap Bill Burton ‘ s tirade over United Airlines airing of NewsmaxTV both childish and ridiculous …

.. [h/t — newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news item ..

.. Burton had one whale of a tirade over the episode . As a result , United is changing its mind over NewsmaxTV . However , this is the Age of the Internet . Even more , this is the Age of Social Media . That is a big game – changer …

.. customers have found out about United actions , and , boy , are they letting their opinions be heard , and out loud …
