… Nice Going , Miz Hillary [#she lied]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 29th,2016

.. she got caught in the act , and boy , and how ..

.. when she was interview [recently] by Brianna Keilor [of CNN] , she said that she had not been subpoenaed . Well , ….

.. Rep. Trey Gowdy [R-SC] is the chair of the House Select Cmte on Benghazi . This blog post [and video clip] shows the cover letter [and the actual subpoena] that was sent to Miz Hillary , personally . So , she damn well had to have known about it . Whoops …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // video clip ..

.. you think that Mrs Clinton would actually give a fig newton about what people think about her . The great mass of politicians do . Sometimes , though , a politician has to make a tough call against his / her constituents ‘ interests . They may not like them , at first , but they will respect them far more for making that tough call . Miz Hillary does not even seem to know the meaning of the word ..

.. Her husband [Mr. Bill] almost always did , at least on the political side of things . He is probably one the best politicians in the DemoCrap party in the last 60 years . Unfortunately , he is a rare bird . The DemoCrap moderates have become about as rare as a do – do bird . Not only that , the Dem leadership [up and down the ladder] seems to be far more interested in destroying the GOP than doing wwhat is in the country ‘ s interests …

… And These Idiots think That the Dems Will Win (?) in 2016 [#miz Hillary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 29th,2016

.. a scandal like this will hang around Miz Hillary ‘ s neck for the length of this campaign ..

.. she will not likely have to worry about a criminal investigation . Not now , at least . The ObamaCraps will see to that , at the very least . However , the pressure to name an Independent Counsel will be relentless . The LameStream Media will try to cover for her , but …

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

.. they are not enamoured of her the way that they were of POTUS or the way that they were of Mr. Bill . Mr. Bill is a genius of a politician , and still is one . POTUS is losing it , but has not totally lost it , as of yet . Miz Hillary is something else …

.. Miz Hillary has a terminal case of politician ‘ s tin ear . When you have that , effectively [in politics] , you are done …

… Greece is headed for a Disaster of Colossal Proportions [#Grexit]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 28th,2016

.. right now , Greece ‘ s exit from the Euro is only a matter of time . It is going to happen . But Why ?!?! …

.. Greece refuses to reform . Waaaay too much of Greece ‘ s economy is in the state sector . Their tax system is grossly inefficient . It does not collect the amount of taxes that it needs to …

.. Its banks are on the precipice . They are about to collapse . They have nobody but themselves to blame for this disaster ..

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

.. it will take a long time for Greece to regain economic stability . Tsipras is done as PM . He and Syriza will be driven out of politics for their colossal mismanagement of the situation . They deserve it …

… Is Ted Strickland Nuts [#Campaign 2016]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 28th,2016

.. evidently he is nuts ..

.. former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland [who , however , passed up on the 2014 campaign] has decided to run for the U.S. Senate seat up for election in 2016 . Given circumstances , his opponent will likely be incumbent GOPer Rob Portman …

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

.. contrary to Mr. Obama ‘ s antics , Ohio is a fairly Red state . It always has been , and always will be so . So , Ted Strickland running against a Republican in a Red state for a US Senate seat is , in effect , a suicide mission ..

.. maybe not quite , but close .

… the Tamir Rice case [#so what happened]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 28th,2016

.. simple — no indictment ..

.. no case is this simple . Nor is this one ..

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

.. it does not mean that these officers [Timothy Loehrmann and Frank Gramback] are out of t the woods . It is far from the tht case . These guys must now face departmental charges [most likely] for their actions . If so , they could face suspension , or , possibly , termination from the force ..

… Am I Thinking about Voting for the Donald [#Ohio primary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 28th,2016

.. yes , I am .

.. but it with some druthers and wonder about his actions ..

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

.. when he behaves like a spoiled brat [playing the do things my way or the highway card] , it makes it a great deal easier to put him aside . I want a reasonably disciplined candidate to take on the Dems , even , if possible , a DemoCrap Socialist . These immature actions by the Donald do not help …

… It is a Real Bad Move to Piss off a Federal judge [#Texas v US]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 27th,2016

.. now that the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favour of the plaintiffs [in terms of the injunction] , well , now , it should motivate the Federal Government to substantially and fully comply with Judge Hanen ‘ s order ..

.. well , now , Judge Hanen is now pissed ..

.. the Government is still making approvals of both D.A.C.A. and D.A.P.A. . Even though with the injunction they were told specifically not to . They are still up to it ..

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

.. Judge Hanen has summoned quite a few people to a hearing in August . Those summoned include the H.H.S. Secretary and the Secretary of Homeland Security . I would not be surprised of our new AG , Loretta Lynch , were not added to the list . She would deserve it , even though it was former AG Holder ‘ s inaction that contributed to all of this …

.. they should also bring their checkbooks . The judge is threating the whole crew with civil contempt findings if they have not fully complied with the original injuction . Somehow I get the idea that a finding of criminal contempt may not be far behind …

… Nice Going , Dumb – Dumbs [ObamaCrapCare Foul Up][IRS foul up]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 27th,2016

.. the ObamaCraps really fouled up , this time …

.. badly ! …

.. the IRS sent nearly 1 million new enrollees the wrong tax forms for figuring their ObamaCrapCare subsidy amounts …

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

.. that was bad enough , but it has likely been compounded by increased amounts . What about the continuing folks ….

… His Lordship ‘ s Request for an AUMF [#bombing][#democraps]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 26th,2016

.. with the DemoCraps , it is even stranger .

.. they want to tie POTUS ‘ hands ever tigher . They tend to forget that POTUS is the Commander – in – Chief . Tieing one ‘ s hands of a POTUS that you despise is really a bad idea …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..

.. if potus WANTS his AUMF , he is going to have to fight for it . Neither side trusts him , not one bit . The DemoCraps want to put unconstitutional limits on what he can do , when , and where …

.. if you want it , POTUS , fight , you damn WUSS , fight ! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 26th,2016

… Islam is a Peaceful Religion [#I wonder]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,January 25th,2016

.. I really do wonder ..

.. much of mainstream Islam is , I reallydo believe , a peaceful faith ..

.. unfortunately , there is a very , very large strain of Islam that is and has been radicalized . How large ? I do not know for sure , to be honest . But the fact is that it is there , it is radical , and it is extremely dangerous ..

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // press snipet ..

.. the fact is that we are going to have to deal with those radicals . They have a great deal of influence , an enormous amount of money , and sway over a large amount of territory ..

.. there is no way around it ..

… His Lordship ‘ s Request for an AUMF ?? [#bombing][#gop]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 24th,2016

.. you wonder why ?? …

.. in the GOP ‘ s case , they simply do not trust him .

.. they want him to ” step up to the plate ” and make the case for the AUMF [war declaration] . The problem is that Obama will not do it . He wants something wishy – washy , one that greatly ties the hands of a Commander – in – Chief . Real bad idea …

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

.. that is the problem . Obama is a wuss . He will not lead . He wants his own hands tied . The GOP actually does not . So , POTUS is likely not to get his AUMF unless he fights for it …

… You can Tell the DemoCrap ‘ s Idea of Priorities [#Issues][#Campaign 2016]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 19th,2016

.. Yes , the DemoCrap candidates for POTUS actually debated the other night . Not that it mattered all that much ..

.. the GOP debates have been a big ratings draw . In particular , they have been a ratings bonanza for the cable snooze networks . But what about the broadcast nets ? Not quite ..

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

.. There is an interest new show on C.B.S. , one that is entitled ” Madam Secretary , ” starring Tea Leoni . Amazingly enough , ” Madam Secretary ” outdrew the Dem debate by a very , very big margin …

… POTUS has a real problem [#Fast Track trade Authority]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 19th,2016

.. no , it is not the GOP ..

.. the GOP actually , for the most part , supports POTUS . It is the Dems that are against ” Fast Track . ” They acted and voted down part of the trade bill just a few days ago …

.. the Fast Track trade Authority actually passed . However , the Trade Adjustment assistance part did not . Under the House rules for the debate , both parts of the bill had to pass for the bill to be considered passed . So , it failed . The Dems were the ones that were the principal guilty parties in this caper ..

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

.. so , POTUS has a lot of work to do . Like learning how to schmooze both sides of the aisle , first . Treating both sides of the aisle with a little more public respect would also help …

.. who gave it ?? …

… Congressman Trey Gowdy [R-SC] has done an excellent job of running theselect Benghazi Committee . He ahs achieved a great deal , in the face of enormous criminal misconduct by the Democraps and the LameStream Media . Still , there is much more work to be done ..

.. Bravo , Trey  ! .. keep up the good work !! ..

.. it also means preserving , protecting , and defending the Constitution , Your Lordship . Whichi includes the entirety of the Bill of Rights ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 17th,2016

.. the negotiations have been extended to July 7 …

.. this extension is not likely to be the only one , I will bet …

.. [h/t — WashingtonInstitute.com]..
.. [link] to the policy statement ..

.. the big problem is in D.C. . Yea , our POTUS . he has a real hard – on for a foreign policy equivalent of his ObamaCrapCare legislation , domestically . However faulty the agreement might be . But he is forging ahead anyway …

.. the problem is Congress . The Republican Caucuses in both Houses of Congress are pretty much unanimous in their opposition to any agreement at all . The linchpin is the Democratic caucus [in each House] . If POTUS can keep the Dems mostly in line , then he can save the agreement . But with this crapola , the Dems will not hold …

… It is Also Abundantly Clear [#Benghazi][#US military][#rescue]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 17th,2016

.. that there was indeed a ” stand down ” order . There is no doubt about it . None . So , what is next ? ..

.. one needs to determine exactly who gave the order . It could be someone in the military chain of command . So , in that case , the order would have come from a senior officer , likely one of flag rank of some type . But the order could have come from somewhere else ..

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

.. if it did , then it would have come from a civilian . You have to think about the situation . What exactly was going on ? So , who would have been called on to make the decision ? ..

… If These Arguments are any Indication [#SCOTUS][#Friedrichs v CTA]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 17th,2016

.. then the public sector unions throughout the country are in big trouble .

.. you would expect that Alito , Thomas , & Roberts would be solid votes to uphold Friedrichs are the likelies , Justices Kennedy and Scalia . I would also count among the possibles one of the liberals , Justice Steven Breyer ..

.. from the arguments , Scalia will be a strong vote to uphold . He may well even get the majority opinion to write , that is if the Chief Justice [Roberts] does not do so himself ..

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

… then there is Tony Kennedy . He literally is SCOTUS ‘ resident ” weather vane , ” that is the swing vote in may of the cases . he may well be a swing vote , but he is still nominally a conservative . One should try to remember that . So , in this case , he is a Yes vote ..

.. in arguments , Breyer was very leery about overriding the current precedent [Abood v Detroit Bd of Ed] . It does not mean that he will not do so . In recent cases , such as Knox v C.T.A , Breyer voted with the conservatives . It is possible , especially if he is given the majority opinion to write , that Breyer will do so again …

… An Interesting Take [#on Israel]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 15th,2016

.. Professor William Jacobson is a well – known academic at Cornell University Law School School [in Ithaca , NY] . I am a longtime participant and fan of his blog, Legal Insurrection . From that , I became a Facebook friend of his …

.. no , I do not know his politics . He is a philosophical conservative , that is for sure . However , he could even be conservative Democrat . To be honest , I do not mind . He is an honest philosophical broker , which to me means a great deal …

.. Professor Jacobson and his wife recently took a 2 – week long trip to Israel . They travel extensively throughout the country , talking to many people of many political and philosophical stripes , especially on the center and the center – left . His take is very intriguing ..

.. [h/t — IJReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. they are not enamoured with Bibi . They sure as hell did not vote for him . However , these folks do respect him . He has balls of steel . Conssidering the treatment that Israel gets on the international stge , these folks feel that Bibi is the only major Israeli leader that can stand up to these people . …

.. their opinion of His Lordship [Obama] is far worse . They like him political , which is obvious . However , they do not respect him , not one bit . They do not feel that POTUS cares not one whit for Israel , and may actually hate Israel , and with a deep passion . One in which the future security and existence of the Jewish state is in question …

… A Courageous Woman [#Rebecca Friedrichs]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 15th,2016

.. it takes guts to take a fight to such a powerful union . Well , the California TeacheRS Association blundered when they grossly underestimated Californian Rebecca Friederichs ..

.. I am not sure if Friederichs is in fact a conservative . She just may well be one , but for this instance , that fact just does not matter . She has the courage of her convictions , and helped lead a group of her co – workers in taking on the C.T.A in their legal battle to seek their financial freedom from the agency fees that they believe that they have been unjustly charged ..

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

.. she deserves to be commended for her courage . A great number of her co – workers greatly disagree with what she and her group of dissidents are attempting to accomplish ..

., presuing that Miz Hillary is the nominee , that this situation does not bubble up to the surface , yet again . Worse yet , they have to be praying that the damn thing does not boil over during the campaign ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..

… the Difference Between a Leader and a … [#Wuss]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 13th,2016

.. yep , you heard it here , first .

.. POTUS is a Wuss . He is , in matter of fact , the First Wuss . So What else is new ?? …

.. there is a great deal of difference between him and a true and real leader . That man is , of course , King Abdullah II of Jordan ..

.. [h/t — TomFernandez.com]..
.. [link] to the show segment ..

.. the First Wuss takes no forceful action , none whatsoever . He does not even have a clue about the meaning of the word ” leadership . ” …

.. His Majesty is far different . He is leading his country [the kingdom] into war with leadership and decisiveness . Also , a number of Arab nations are rallying to his side , and not ours . For good reason …

… Miz Hillary is an Economic Illiterate [#Supply Side Economics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 13th,2016

.. it works every time that it is tried …

.. it is the supply side of the laws of supply and demand . You cannot have investment without encouraging it …

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

.. Miz Hillary does not have a clue about how businesses work . Considering she is a lifelong radical activist and a lawyer , plus a senator …. that figures …

.. it does not matter ….. whether it is sole proprietorship , a partnership , or a corporation ….. they help to create the jobs …. economic demand does not do it ….

.. Miz Hillary should go back to college , and take a refresher minor in economics . Then , at least , she will then understand how economics works , and how the business cycle works [as well]….
