… How Low Can it Go ? [#US influence in Israel]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,February 29th,2016

.. you would think that we would have considerable influence with an ally ..

.. not in Israel ..

.. POTUS and SecState have so thoroughly pissed off the Israeli body politic (even the left) that they are on the outside looking in . Even their so – called ” orders ” to stop shipping arms to Israel are countermanded …

… For His Lordship [Obama] , it Figures [#oil fee]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,February 29th,2016

.. POTUS has included an oil fee in his 2017 federal budget proposal that he has just submitted to Congress . What is proposed will raise quite a bit of money , to say the least ..

.. He wants to use the $$ for supposed ” clean tech . ” is this idiotic potus trying to repeat Solyndra , or what

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com/Finance]..
.. [lINK} to the blog post news .>>

>. He has no chace of getting this proposal through Congress . NOE whatsoever . He has LITTLE to no political capital that he can use to push the idea through . Also , POTUS is not a schmoozer . In D.C. , you really need to be fairly good a schmoozing with Congresscritters and Senators in order to get things done . Obama has never understood this at all > So he can forget about this idea getting thru a GOP – controlled Congress ..

… FYI — Permisos ?? [#unaccompanied illegal minors]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 28th,2016

.. so , what are these things ..

.. I wondered , and did some research and reading …

.. the ” permisos ” (as they are called) are the ” Notices to Appear ” in Immigration Court . Without the realistic threat of deportation , those ” permisos ” are a joke , a very sick joke …

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

.. and , getting them is why those kids are coming . Yes , that and more . You can add in D.A.C.A. (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) to the list of counts . These kids realize the philosophy behind D.A.C.A. is pushing more and more amnesty . If these kids even have the chance to stay , then that is good enough for them …

.. nice going , Your Lordship !! …

.. from Byron York ‘ s piece : …

As it turns out, the Republican explanation does withstand a whole lot of scrutiny. Recent days have been filled with anecdotal reports, from local news outlets in Central America to major American newspapers, citing immigrants who say they came because they believe U.S. law has been changed to allow them to stay. And now comes word that Border Patrol agents in the most heavily-trafficked area of the surge, the Rio Grande Valley sector of Texas, recently questioned 230 illegal immigrants about why they came. The results showed overwhelmingly that the immigrants, including those classified as UACs, or unaccompanied children, were motivated by the belief that they would be allowed to stay in the United States — and not by conditions in their homelands. From a report written by the agents, quoting from the interviews:


 

The report added that a “second reason” cited by the immigrants is “the increased gang-related violence in Central America that authorities are unable to contain.” In addition, other immigrants said they came because they had finally gotten enough money, either from savings or funds sent from relatives in the United States, to make the trip. Still others cited unemployment, poverty, and domestic abuse in their countries. Nevertheless, the report concluded that “the issuance of ‘permisos’ to family units was the primary reason for leaving their countries.”


 

The report suggests that this new wave of illegal immigration is building on previous waves of illegal immigration. “All of the interviewed subjects stated that they had family members or, to a lesser extent, friends already living in the U.S.,” the report said. “Many of the relatives and friends are undocumented aliens, who have been living in the U.S. for periods ranging from several months to 10+ years.”

.. ergo , there is no legal authorization for this . None whatsoever , contrary to the 9th Appeals Courts belief . Ironically , it is the court case appeal in that court [Az DAC v Brewer] which is going to sink D.A.C.A. and Obama ‘ s other monkeyshines …

.. the enforcement of the body of law ..

.. not just selectively . The body of law , generally , as a whole ..

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

.. that includes deportation . The ObamaCraps have an obligation to deport each and every illegal alien that they can find . They also have a solemn obligation to go out and look for those illegals . That is in the law , as well as in the annual budget …

.. doing what POTUS is doing is clearly illegal . It is first and foremost in violation of the Anti – Deficiency Act , which prohibits the spending of public funds on actions and purposes not specifically [explicity or implicity] appropriated for and / or authorized for by Congress …

.. so , screw the damn legal basis , D.A.C.A. is not legally proper , and has not been authorized by Congress . It is not a legal program , not one damn bit . So , shut it down …

.. what is His Lordship thinking ? ..

.. he proposes this piece of crap , and he calls it an actual ” plan . ” You have got to be kidding ! ..

.. Yeah , His Lordship still wants to close Gitmo . He signed an exec order two days into office closing the detainee facility at the Guantanamo Bay naval base . WEll , his was not the only voice . Congress had one on the subject . And how ..

.. gee , and it WAS a heavily DemoCrap Congress that did the deed . They made it perfectly clear . They did not want those detainees on U.S. soil , in no way , shape , or form . Period ..

.. and the Obamacraps got left out in the cold …

.. Libya has degenerated into a failed mess . Various militia groups are brawling over the pieces . Well , Egypt [under Al – Sisi] and the UAE are stepping up …

.. they are siding with the moderates . They stepped in and took action . They are using aircraft and helicopters to work to change the balance of power in Tripoli and the rest of the country . Also , they did not tell His Lordship about it …

.. Good ! … considering the morons in the ObamaCrap White House , they would have found a way to totally screw it up . So others have stepped up . And our country has been left out in the cold …

.. boy , have times changed in the Age of Obama … and not for the better …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 26th,2016

.. Obama ended the war in Iraq . He did it in 2011 . So , the Congressional authorization to use military force [AUMF] that President George W. Bush obtained from Congress in 2002 died with it …

.. POTUS , you do not have the legality to go to war with I.S.I.L. . You need to seek Congressional authorization to do it ….

… The Good Guys Strike Back [#SCOTUS][#exec overreach]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 25th,2016

.. POTUS  acts as if he is a power unto himself . He is  so damn arrogant that he does not seem to realize that there are limits to executive power . POTUS is not , as the Latinos call it , a caudillo , whose own word is law . He is a law unto himself . Un – uh . Our nation and our Constitution do not work that way ..

.. POTUS is the head of the Executive Branch . He / she is the head of one of three co – equal branches . If one branch [the Executive] starts to get too big for their britches , then one or both of the other two branches can and will strike back ..the blog post …

.. In this case , it is SCOTUS who has struck back , and handed the E.P.A. a stunning loss . It still applies , even with the death of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia ..

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

.. The E.P.A. has proposed what is known as the ” CleaN Power Plan . ” The plan is nothing more than a gigantic gross regulatory overreach into al of our lives . It also allows the OC to implement their Climate change plans by stealth , anD NOT BY LAW . wEll , the courts are having nothing of it .>

.. SCOUTS saw this COMing . It also saw a OC – stuffed dc appeals circuit that ould play aournd with the plan so that Scotus COULD not get its hands on it . WEll ,, SCOTUS saw right thru that stunt , and slapped down the D.C. Circuit , as well as the O.C. ..

She has none . She is not liked , nor is not trusted . For any politician , no matter who you are , the above is virtually fatal ..

… What werre the NV Dems Thinking [#absentee ballot process][#military][#US]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 24th,2016

.. getting absentee ballots to our overseas military is never easy . You have to think ahead , and to plan ahead in order for them to get their ballots in enough time for them to be able to vote , especially without being rushed . Then it takes more time for their ballots to be returned ..

.. then you have a caucus . That presents even more headaches ..

.. Caucuses are meetings . People take time out of their day [or evening] to stand up for their political principles , and those candidates whom they might support . However , this becomes a very big issue for the uniformed military ..

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

.. in other countries , their military services are rife with politics . As a result , the professional level of theose nation ‘ s armed services suffers as a result . our does not , and does not permit it . But it does permit [and encourage ] people to vote …

.. but what the DemOCrap party in Nevada did in their recent caucus is a disgrace . They had our troops in the field spend 3 to 4 hours on the phone [on an international call] to participate in their local caucus . Are you kidding ?? Those calls are extraordinarily expensive , as well as time – wasting . Be real ..

.. The Nevada GOP was far more practical . They did things the olde fashioned way . They had our troops participate with their candidate preferences [in the caucus] with an absentee ballot . Simple enough ..

.. There has to be a better way . Maybe the Nevada GOP Already has it ..

… Early Voting and Ohio [#what is going on]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 24th,2016

.. to be honest , what is going on in the campaign season affects us all ..

.. the DemoCraps have only 2 choices . the GOP , by comparison , has a much broader selection [used to be 6 candidates , now it is 5 candidates] ..

.. in Ohio , early voting has already started , as of February 17th , 2016 . the no excuse absentee [mail] ving continues right up until the day of the election . After that , then you have to get off of your buns and do it the old – fashioned way …

.. you even have another Option . In Ohio , you can go the offices of the your county Board of Elections where one lives . Once there , you do have to prove your personal identity . Then you get to do what is known as in – person absentee voting . This continues all the way up until the day before Election Day . As with mail , if you miss out , then you gotta get off of your buns and go to your local polling place and do it yee olde fashioned way …

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

.. so , what is going on indeed does affect us ..
