Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 31st,2015

.. remember one smart political idea …

.. when you attack politically , go for your target . Hell , leave the damn spouse out of it . The race is between your opponent and you . You do not need to mess around with attacking another target in the process ..

… the Political Attack [#Donald Trump][#Bill Clinton][#Miz Hillary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 30th,2015

.. it may be a morally good idea to go after a spouse ‘ s husband . In particular , one with the reputation for moral degeneracy of Wilhelm der Fibmeister [Bill Clinton] . But , is it such a birght idea , politically ?? ..

.. you have to be politically smart , and take the measure of your target . It helps to take a good measure of who they are ,what they are about , and what makes them tick . Then , one can decide if it is such a wise idea ..

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

.. in Bill Clinton ‘ s case , I would think not . Yes , Bill Clinton is a moral degenerate . He was one and still is one . However , Mr. Bill is one of the smartest , wisest , and most able Democratic politicians in the last 50 to 60 years . He is definitely one very smart customer , so one politically attacks him at one ‘ s peril ..

.. Be careful when you politically attack .. the blowback could end up being a real lu – lu …

… the Political Attack [#Trump][#Bill Clinton]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 29th,2015

.. I wonder — is a political strike on Bill Clinton [by the Donald] such a bright idea ?? ..

.. I do believe that it is morally a good idea .. Bill Clinton was and still is a moral degenerate . He has tried to rehab his reputation , and has , to a point , succeeded . But , it still leaves him vulnerable ..

.. well , Boko Haram happened , folks . They should have been designated as a terrorist group right off the bat , back in 2010 or 2009 . Simple , they weren’t . Well , it was finally done , but it took until almost the dawn of 2014 until it was accomplished …

.. about time , dummies ! .. and why the damn delay ? Answer — corruption . Crimes in corruption trials throughout the Western World have been proven with far less . Circumstantial evidence is a standard of justice in our time , so , what gives …

… Miz Hillary ‘ s behaviour on Voting Rights is a Disgrace [#ballot security]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 27th,2015

.. she recently gave a series of speeches . You would normally expect these kind of speeches in the heart of a campaign . But why now ?? ..

.. is she nuts ? No , it seems that she is finding that her best road to the White House is by going to the left . She literally has no choice . Bernie Sanders and others are forcing her in that way ..

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

.. in particular , Sanders is a national threat . If she does not move consistently to the left , Sanders could withdraw from the Democratic race , and either move to the Greens , the Libertarians , or run as an Independent . If he did do so , then Sanders could garner around 3% to 5% of the vote nationally , and put a number of Blue states in play …

.. however , that does not excuse Miz Hillary ‘ s conduct in her speeches . That she needs to pull these kind of stunts now is emblematic of  how her campaign is in real trouble …

… You ‘ re Right , Joni [#It is not Enough to be a Woman]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 24th,2015

.. U.S. Sen Joni Ernst [R-Ia] has started her own new tra sual [for a Republican] background , her idea that she wanted to do is a ” Roast and Ride .. ” ..

.. she was interviewed by CNN ‘ s Dana Bash at her event , and one of the questions was related to women ‘ s issues . Joni did a beautiful job of turning the question [and the issue] on its head , the way a chess player always does [at least the good ones do] …

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

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) took a jab at Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton, repeating a comment Clinton had made about Ernst while campaigning for the senator’s opponent last fall.

Clinton had criticized Ernst’s record on women’s issues in a stump speech for Democrat Bruce Braley in the 2014 midterm election: “It’s not enough to be a woman. You have to be committed to expand rights and opportunities for women.”

Ernst repeated Clinton’s comment in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, saying Clinton’s gender mattered less to Iowans than her record on women’s issues.

“I would say Hillary, it’s not enough to be a woman. You have to care about women’s issues,” Ernst said, listing strong economy, “great educational system” and strong national defense as women’s issues in Iowa.

“You have to be a leader with a vision, and you have to show Iowans that you want it … and not just a woman,” Ernst said on CNN.

… Greece needs a U.S. – style Chapter 11 restructuring [#bankruptcy]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 24th,2015

.. it is that simple ..

.. Greece got itself into one hell of a pickle . It needs to get out of it . But piling on debt on top of more debt is not going to do it ..

.. economic stricnyne from the I.M.F. will not work . What the I.M.F. usually insists upon is austerity , always austerity . It means budget cuts , but also major tax increases . It almost never asks for economic restructuring from the target country . Which figures ..

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

.. the debt has to be written down . It is that simple . There is no other way around it , folks . Piling more debt on top of debt will not do it ..

.. Greece will need to undergo extensive economic reforms . The way that things are going now , Greece will undergo a very slow and painful economic death . Which is obviously something that they do not want . But they will have to do something about it ..

.. also , there will have to be asset sales . Greece cannot avoid it . There is waaay too much state involvement in the economy . It is strangling Greece , economically > Also , it is killing Gree in terms of its tax revenue …

.. whether Gree remains in the Euro is up to them . They know what they need to do .They just need to do it …

… Allowing parts of the Patriot Act to Expire [#metadata]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 18th,2015

.. is a real bad idea ..

.. is the newly named ” USA Freedom ” Act any better ? I am not sure . But leaving the country unprotected is a really stupid idea ..

.. I will support and endorse a Republican in the primaries . But Rand Paul will not be one of them . His behaviour on this issue and in this debate have been horrible . His fundraising off of his actions has been abominable …

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

.. so , might the USA Freedom Act be any better ? It might be . I think that , for once , that there is a genuine bipartisan consensus on both sides of the Hill in order to reform the Patroit Act . The reform could be better , but this solution just might be good enough ..

.. but Rand Paul ‘ s conduct is not .

… Well , Bowe Bergdahl is going to Be Busted [#court martial]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 17th,2015

.. well , the other night , retired Army Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer made one of his periodic appearances on ” the O ‘ Reilly Factor ” with Bill O ‘ Reilly . It usually makes news , but is not surprising news . In this case , boy , was it not the case …

.. [h/t — ReclaimOurRepublic.wordpress.com]..
.. [link] to the interview footage …

.. Colonel Shaffer broke the news that the Army has the report on Pvt. Bergdahl , and it has explosive news in the report . Boy , does it ever …

.. Pvt. Bergdahl and his legal counsel have been provided with a charge sheet [of multiple pages] that containes several charges against the soldier . The chief one is the news breaker : Desertion …

.. what is really outrageous is the battle between the Department of the Army and the ObamaCrap White House . The Army wants to ” bust ” Bergdahl ‘ s chops . They apparantely have the evidence that he is clearly guilty of desertion . They want to go ahead with the court – martial , no matter what . The ObamaCraps , as you might think , definitely do not want it , and for good reason …

.. their trade of Bergdahl for 5 terrorists has gone over badly in the Court of Public Opinion . It bombed , to be honest . Then this news pops up . This news would do grave damage to their reputations , as well as to the Democratic party as a whole . That would severely damage the Dem nominee in 2016 …

.. so be it …

… I think Racial Preferences may be Dead [#college admissions]….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 17th,2015

.. if the arguments at SCOTUS are any indication , I believe that this case means that racial preferences are a dead issue

.. the battle over racial preferences in college admissions has been a lengthy one . It has extended for more than 65 years . More recently , Greuzer v. University of Michigan gave a limited exemption for undergraduate college admission . Except that it was only for a short period of time ..

.. Nor is this case new , either . Fisher v. Univ. of Texas worked its was up to SCOTUS in 2013 . No , back then I did not take a position on it ., at the time . Well , I am going to do so now ..

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

.. I have never liked racial preferences . No , I have not been directly been affected by them , not at any time . But a family member of mine [my sister] has been by this stuff . She has been affected several times by racial preferences throughout her teaching career . ..

.. No , she does not like them , either . She believes in the fundamental fairness of competing on merit , not on a statistic . You should not be preferred due to the colour of your skin …

… Our AG must Have a Major Case of ” Diarrhea of the Mouth ” [#pro – muslim safe space]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 16th,2015

.. either that , or she must have a colossal case of ” constipation of the brain . ” When she makes statements as she has at a recent Muslim groups ‘ s dinner , she has obviously forgotten that she is AGoFtus ..

.. She is sworn to enforce the ” entire body of the law . ” Doing that is something that the ObamaCraps have had a very hard time dealing with and doing so . What the ObamaCraps are doing right now is selectively enforcing the law [and the U.S. Constitution , only doing so when it fits their agenda , and their preferred narrative ..

.. people may not like mMuslims . They may even hate them . But , as long as their language does not cross into actual action , what they do is their own business . Now , according to the AG , those spoken threats are now actionable ..

.. Bad Move .. ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..

.. an AG should and must be smarter than that . Loretta Lynch should damn well know better ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 14th,2015

.. there is a real mess now in the McDonald affair . Politics in the City of Chicago has turned into a real jumble . But why ?? ..

… Ouch ! A Stunning Rejection of Maduro [#Venezuela][#Chavez][#socialism]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 12th,2015

.. the Chavistas adopted economics [i.e. , socialism] , and look at what a grand old mess it has made : …

.. [-] oil — Venezuela is one of the most richly endowed oil rich nations in the Western Hemisphere . it is able to produce more than 2.5 million barrels / day , but the output has been sliding over the last 20 years . A grievous lack of investmest is the cause , and the Chavistas wonder why ?? …

.. [-] more oil more oil — Venezuela is also blessed with one of the largest oil shale regions in the the world . The region ,called the Orinioco , has an estimated 250 billion to 300 billion barrels of proven reserves . That would make it more than double the size of the reserves of any Middle Eastern nation . Yet , their development has barely scratched the surface . A grievous lack of capital investment is crying out to exploit this region. Guess why ??

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

.. now all of the years of gross economic mismanagement has caught up to the Chavistas . Hugo Chavez has been dead and buried for a couple of years , but his successor , Nicloas Maduro , has to live with the economic RUINS OF WHAT Chavez – style socialism has wrought ..

.. The Venezuelan conservative opposition has [miraculously] won almost a 3/4ths majority in the Venezuelan national Assembly . With that majority [presuming Maduro and his cronies allow it to stand] , the opposition can do quite a bit to reform Venezuelan society ..

.. I wish them luck . Maduro and what is left of the remaining chaveztas will not make it easy for them to try to govern …

… the Laquan McDonald Affair [#Chicago]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 11th,2015

.. what a god – awful tragedy ..

.. McDonald is [was] a 19 – year – old teenager who was targeted by a police officer while after the commission of a crime . McDonald was carrying a knife while being confronted by a police officer . In that case , no major sweat . McD refused to surrender ..

.. what happened next is what has caused all of the conundrum . The officer [Ptl. Jason Van Dyke] confronted McDonald , and then the cop open fire on McD . One or two times would be enough . But Van Dyke shot at him 16 to 18 times . That is truly outrageous ..

.. [h/t –– news.yahoo.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. yes , McDonald is [was] the perpetrator . But a police officer can only use what is termed as ” reasonable force ” to apprehend a suspect . That is something that Jason Van Dyke did not do …

.. now Van Dyke stands accused of 1st – degree murder . The reverberations will shake the city of Chicago for many years to come …

… the Tamir Rice case [#the grand jury]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 10th,2015

.. now we wait for what the county grand jury will do , or I think , in this case , will not do ..

.. a county grand jury [in most states] goes for a specific term . At the end of that term , the grand jury ‘ s work is done . however , the county prosecutor ‘ s office can apply for an extention . They often do so when a specific grand jury is carrying on important work , and is near a decision …

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

… in this case , I believe the expiration of the grand jury is around December 15th , ggive or take a couple of days . If an extention is applied for , it is has to go before a county Common Pleas judge . So it is likely that the news of an extention will get out fairly quickly ..

… the Tamir Rice case [#the officers speak]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 9th,2015

.. Now , the officers involved in the Tamir Rice case have had their day in court , at least so far . how , you might ask . They have acted to appear before a grand jury . They have also filled out and have made sworn statements , under penalty of perjury . A bit unusual , I admit ..

.. .. these two guys have made a tactical blunder , at the least . Why , do you ask ? ..

.. The officers in this case [Timothy Grambach and William Loehrmann] should have kept their mouths shut . In that way , they could still have invoked their 5th amendment rights against self incrimination . Now , they cannot do so ..

.. [h/t — ]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. the officers can be called back before the grand jury . If they refuse to testify , then they can be charged with [at least] civil contempt . Even more so , they could even be charged with criminal contempt , and be indicted and charged for that , instead of the shooting ..

… the Tamir Rice case [#the grand jury]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 8th,2015

.. when a prosecutor makes a decision about a case , it is often a secret decision . It is one that is rarely challenged ..

.. in the Tamir Rice case , the Rice family [and their attorneys] are all over the case . They even want to know what the prosecutor ‘ s recommendation will be to the grand jury ..

.. [h/t — fox8.com]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. the Rice family cannot be serious . This is not going to be a public decision , subject to debate . The prosecutor [Tim McGinty] will make his decision , and then turn it over to the grand jury . We may know it , or we may not ..

… Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a Radical Activist [#Supreme Court Justice]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 7th,2015

.. How this ultraliberal witch was confirmed was beyond me …

.. She was nominated and confirmed by Bill Clinton [and the USSenate] in the early 1990s . She was , at the time , a lead A.C.L.U. legal counsel . So , there you are …

.. you look at her rulings down through the years , and you wonder ? Why did the GOP vote for her confirmation ? She should have been blocked . She has no business being a Supreme Court justice …

.. [h/t — HuffingtonPost.com]..
.. [link] to the opinion piece …

.. hopefully , God Willing , she will be replaced by a GOP president . Preferrably , by a conservative one . The more conservative , the better … It would be a pleasure to watch the liberal DemoCRaps have a hissyfit over the confirmation of her successor . It would be poetic justice , especially if she had died in office …

.. hopefully , a strong and stout young conservative will begin to restore sanity and reason to the bench …

— update — if Ginsberg [given her age and health] decides to step down , it will make for one hellish confirmation battle . POTUS will want to make his imprint on the Supremes , no matter what party controls the Senate . The problem is if POTUS nominates someone that is not confirmable , even by the DemoCraps . Even they may not be able to tolerate a radical activist …

.. if she does it in 2016 , then there will be no confirmation battle at all . The GOP will simply not confirm anyone , even for an Associate Justice slot on the Supreme Court . If , as I expect , the GOP sweeps through to victory in 2016 , then they get to appoint the replacement …

.. Kevin posits that the actions of the ObamaCrap Administration and the Department of InJustice have sent out a none – too – subtle message to the country : We may say that we are for policing in the community , but our actions say otherwise .

… Woodward hammered His Lordship [#Iraq Situation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 7th,2015

.. while on Fox News Sunday the other week , Chris Wallace asked Bob Woodward about what he thought about the current situation in Iraq . Well , Woody was not charitable , not in the least . He was very critical ..

.. what most folks do not remember is that Bob Woodward is a U.S. Navy veteran , as well as a Vietnam – era veteran . He served as an officer in U.S. Navy intelligence in the late 1950s and the early 1960s . It was from there that he eventually got his reputation , and then went to the ComPost …

It was a political decision , and it was one made by Obama . It was his call , and his responsibility …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 7th,2015

.. well , it seems that Main InJustice and the ObamaCraps are at it again …

.. they are coming up with a group of new gun restrictions . Yea , ones such as ones targeted against those convicted of misdemeanor convictions . In particular , they want to target those convicted of domestic violence . Also , they want to target those that are accused of being mentally ill .. It figures …

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

.. if these changes were passed into law as part of a a bill , then there would be a fair bit more legitimacy to them . They might be challenged in court , but that these items were laws , and not regulations , would give them legitimacy . However , they are not > THEY ARE REGULATIONS < BECAUSE THERE IS NOt a chance in hell that the ObamaCraps could get these items passed through Congress in the current climate . In particular , the lack of trust in POTUS and his minions is greatly contributing to the atmosphere of distrust between Congress and the White House …

… POTUS will have No Choice [#signing a NCLB overhaul]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 6th,2015

.. it appears that His Lordship ‘ s desk is going to be quite busy ..

.. in education , it appears that the GOP is going to be going after both Common Core and No Child Left Behind ….

.. Education Reform is always a good idea . But it has to be done carefully . One big problem is the unions . You have to tie the bureaucracy ‘ s hand ‘ s tightly so that the unions cannot play games with the proposals . Another problem is the bureaucracy itself . It is far better to send the money back to the states , and allow them to spend the money , with a minimum of federal mandates …

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

.. POTUS will have no choice but to sign a reform bill . The N.E.A. has been effectively neutered , and they have less than no influence with the GOP leadership , much less the rank – and – file . Also , there is a fast – growing split in the DemoCraps in between the public sector unions and the private sector unions . The drain that the former is on the tax $$ of the latter is going to make the latter far more hostile to public sector piggees … and grant openings to the GOP for union support …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 6th,2015

.. it needs several things ..

.. [-] reorganization — considering the changes in the economic payments system , change has to come . The U.S.P.S. has to change with it . It needs to layoff quite a number of its union work force . It has to be done , whether the unions like it or not ..

.. [-] competition — the U.S.P.S. needs to be forced to compete . Right now , it is a monopoly , with no incentive to compete with anyone . Its business needs to be opened up to competition with private business . With a fair shake , the private sector can and will compete with the U.S.P.S. ..

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

.. [-] privatization — the Postal Service has long been a government agency , in one form or another . At one time , that Form of business was needed . Now , it is abundantly clear that it is not . The U.s.p.s. needs to be privatized ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 6th,2015

.. no , I do not support the I.C.C. [the International Criminal Court]. You may ask why ? ..

.. simple , there is no political supervision over the actions of the Court , either for the judiciary , or for the prosecutors …

.. in our system of 3 branches , each is [or is supposed to] balance the actions of the other . In that way any branch of government cannot get excessively out of control . When they do , there are political consequences …

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

.. with the I.C.C. , there is no control . If the prosecutors or the judges [individually , or as a group] run wild , there is no political control …

.. the Israelis have every right to resist the efforts of the P.A. . What they are doing is immoral and the highest height of criminal hypocricy . Especially with the conduct of Hamas during the recent war …
