… James Clyburn , You are an Idiot [#Emancipation Proclamation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 31st,2016

.. the Proclamation was a political act , yes ..

.. but , in terms of the Civil War , it was a military order …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics.com/Video]..
.. [link] to the idiotic comments …

.. it was only effective in areas under the control of Union troops . Slaves [ergo , freedmen] could use it to state that they were then free , but if they were not in an area under Union control , then they were out of luck ….

.. at least , until Union troops came , or , the war eventually ended , which it did [in April of 1865]…

… Hilarious Skit [#SNL send up of “I have a Bill”]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 31st,2016

.. I thought that this was coming , but I normally do not watch S.N.L. …

.. I was watching the USC – UCLA football game on Saturday night . I also forgot to watch the opening to ” Justice with Judge Jeanine , ” too …

.. oh , well …

.. [h/t — Newsbusters.org]..
.. [link] to the SNL skit …

.. my understanding is that this was the S.N.L. [Saturday Night Live] opening , and it was a hoot . I did watch this , on video , and I remember the original from when I was a kid in the ’70s [when the original P.S.A. aired on ABC] …

.. the S.N.L. cast nailed it , just right . it also ripped a gigantic hole in His Lordship and his actions , too …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 31st,2016

.. now , it is a all – ObamaCrap panel of the 4th Circuit . NC draws a panel like that , and what would one expect ?? ..

.. gross judicial activism , writ large ..

.. those 3 loons struck down NC ‘ s strict Voter I.D. law for being ” discriminatory . ” NO doubt they used the disparate impact standard , once again …

… Doesn’t this Judge Get It ?? [#Wisconsin][#voter id law]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 31st,2016

.. you would think that this judge would understand [already] that the 7th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court soundly approved the voter id law in Wisconsin ..

.. unfortunately , this idiot judge just did not get the message .Worse , this idiot applied an unconstitutional approach [the disparate impact standard] in doing so .. . So what does he do ? ..

.. this judge sticks his nose in where it does not belong , not one damn bit . He strikes down the essence of the Voter I.D. law ..

… Will the Loonie Lefties ever Learn [#workfare]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 30th,2016

.. it seems that ” Red Bill ” deBlasio [NYC Mayor] wants to get rid of workfare …

.. it seems that he and his allies seem to find it to be ” demeaning ” and ” insulting ” …

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

.. ” Red Bill ” let this tidbit out just after the elections . Gee , I wonder why ?? Because it is an uncomfortable reminder to the working class voters in NYC and New York state about what happens when you elect a lot of DemoCraps to office , and what those losers do when they get there …

.. well , the GOP seized control of the New York Senate in this year ‘ s elections . Even if Gov Cuomo and the Assembly want to do away with it , the NY Senate can block the move …

… Well , They were right [#email][#hack][#BErnie Sanders]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 30th,2016

.. the hack of the D.N.C. database was a real doozy ..

.. I expect that Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not the only person to walk the plank . There will be other staffers that will be canned over this . Their emails are far too embarrassing for them to survive ..

.. but the BernieCrats still think that the deck was stacked against him . So did the Donald . To be honest , SO DID I ..

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

.. they were right . The emails showed that the D.N.C. staff , from DWS On down , were highly bigoted in favour of Miz Hillary . Big Surprise !! ..

… Get a Clue , Miz Hillary [#e mail][#classification]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 30th,2016

.. those damn e mails were classified from the beginning ..

.. from what e mails were release [in redacted form , of course] , these documents bear the information stamps of things that are related to our nation ‘ s security . What these items do not bear any relation to is to our current political state …

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

.. from this author ‘ s piece , it is easy to tell that these e mails bear identification stamps that are related to our nation ‘ s security . Even one that was released in full [on Benghazi] shows the indications of where the document should have been redacted , once it was ” tipped ” for release ..

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

.. the news service took a thorough look at a number of the e mails , including the Benghazi e mail . They found that [clearly] that those e mails were classified information from the start …

.. so , what excuse do you have now , Miz Hillary ?!?! Huh ! …

… This Activist Judge has no Business Doing This [#Wisconsin Voter ID law]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 29th,2016

.. an activist federal district court judge [Lynn Adelman] has stuck her nose firmly and plainly into the Wisconsin Voter I.D. debate . Except this issue is supposed to be settled law ..

.. The A.C.L.U. and the National Lawyers Guild went forum shopping , and they got lucky . They found an activist lacky to issue a partial injunction in their ” case .. ”

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

.. this is ridiculous . This case should be sat on by the 7th Circuit , and then the case should be forced to be dismissed ..

… Activist Judges screw Texas [#Voter I.D. law]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 29th,2016

.. no , they did not strike it down in its entirety . But they did something just as bad , they used disparate impact theory to rule that the Texas Legislature discriminated against minorities in passing the voter i.d. law ..

.. as it was , there was no majority on the court , it was a plurality . The liberals held together , and the conservatives split . As a result , the ruling was 9 to 6 ..

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

.. it looks like SCOTUS is going to need to step in and settle this . They already have previous precedent [strong ones] on both disparate impact theory and voter i.d. law to take this case and uphold pretty much uphold the law [and give the appeals court a tongue – lashing]…

… She Deserves to Be Fired [#Baltimore County prosecutor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 29th,2016

.. Marilyn Mosby is a greenhorn as a prosecutor . I have to wonder what idiots put her into office as the Baltimore County prosecutor . It was by election , no doubt ..

.. out of the result of the Freddie Gray case , the entirety of the case required sound judgement and wisdom . Also experience . Those were traits that were sorely lacking in Ms Mosby . So , what indeed happened ?? ..

.. a colossal disaster . The first trial ended in a hung jury , but the jury was leaning heavily towards not guilty . The other three trial were all bench trials , and those officers were all found not guilty . Not only that , but the judge bawled out the prosecutors and the prosecution for their poor preparation and their lack of professionalism ..

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

.. so , what should happen now ?? ..

.. Mosby must be relieved of her duties . She is / was clearly over her head in bringing the entirety of the case against the 6 officers . But not just that . She should be brought before the Maryland Bar on multiple charges . Her legal license could well be at stake ..

.. Depending on Maryland law , she could well be facing a civil lawsuit from any one of the 6 officers for malicious prosecution . I would not be surprised at that …

… Judge Sullivan should retain Jurisdiction [#EMailGate]#State Department]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 28th,2016

.. State will undoubtedly dilly – dally around with email releases . Their proposed schedule of releases for the emails for Miz Hillary ‘ s aides , including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills , is a prime case in point ..

.. so , what can be done ?? ..

.. for a federal judge , that is easy . Retain jurisdiction over the case . That way the State Department has the spur of a federal judge on its back ..

… Why Rich Weinstein Did what He Did ?!?! [#Gruber exposed]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 28th,2016

.. @phillyrich 1 … he is an independent investment adviser ..

.. the ” essential benefits package ” feature of ObamaCrapCare required the health insurance that he carried on himself [and , presumably , on his family] to be canceled … Ouch ! ..

.. [h/t — Twitchy.com]..
.. [link] to the tweets // blog posts ..

.. the ObamaCrapCare E.B.P. that he wanted to get [that he could afford] cost twice as much as he paid before …

.. twice …

.. Weinstein is a small businessman , and presumably may well employ one or two people . He is responsible for his own health coverage , plus that of anyone he may well employ . Especially if he is a sole proprietor …

.. even more so are the deductibles under the ObamaCrapCare plans [Platinum,Gold,Silver, and Bronze]… the co – pays are not bad , but the deductibles [before coverage kicks in] are a real killer , financially , for most anyone …

… Miz Hillary is Desparate for Votes [#Black Votes Matter]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 27th,2016

.. yes , they do ..

.. the demographics of the Black Community are changing markedly . The Democrats know that , and it scares them to hell ..

.. sooner or later , the Black Vote is slowly going to start cracking . Not in large chunks , mind you . But it will soon happen ..

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

.. Miz Hillary is desparate to maintain the margins that His Lordship got in 2012 and 2008 . The question is will her people work hard enough to get them , and will blacks turn out in those kind of #s . I don’t think so …

.. Especially now ..

.. if the GOP can get close to 8% to 10% of the Black vote , especially in critical areas , then it will be a big move in their direction . If the %age of the black vote is even higher , than Miz Hillary is a dead duck ..

.. I bet that school choice will eventually be a big vote getter for the GOP , given the Dems ‘ slavery to the N.E.A. and the A.F.T. . The quality of the black education that occurs in the cities is a horrid disgrace ..

… Go After C.A.I.R. [#terrorist group]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 27th,2016

.. I am referring , of course , to the Council on American – Islamic Relations …

.. it is abundantly clear from the evidence and the great number of law investigations that C.A.I.R. is a terrorist organization ..

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

.. the evidence will clearly support a legal determination against CAIR and its constitutent groups . That way , the constituent groups can also be so designated …

.. it will help deal with the legal and constitutional problems of dealing with such a designation …

Some House Republicans are submitting a bill, which will “impose sanctions against persons who knowingly provide material support or resources to the Muslim Brotherhood or its affiliates, associated groups, or agents, and for other purposes.” Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups in the U.S. include the Muslim American Society (MAS), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Circle of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) and the Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA).

The bill currently has seven cosponsors: Peter Roskam (R-IL), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Kevin Brady (R-TX), Steve Southerland (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and Doug LaMalfa (R-CA).

According to the Washington Free Beacon:


While the United States has designated individuals and certain affiliates of the Brotherhood in the past, this is the first time that Congress has moved to sanction the organization as a whole, including all of its member organizations.

The 19-page bill seeks to build a case against the group as one of the leading sponsors of terrorism and argues that the Brotherhood has long been a key player in orchestrating attacks across the globe via its proxies.

The bill would direct the U.S. government to level all “available sanctions” to any person in the United States “who knowingly provides material support or resources to the Muslim Brotherhood or its affiliates, associated groups, or agents.”

It also moves to block anyone affiliated with the Brotherhood from receiving a U.S. visa, which could complicate the White House’s diplomacy efforts on multiple fronts.

Additionally, the bill would force a complete shutdown of any Brotherhood affiliates located in the United States and permit the removal of “any alien who is a member or representative” of the group

Many of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist funding group, and the FBI has specifically warned of CAIR’s terrorist ties. Despite those red flags some Democrats have close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates. Presidential Adviser Valerie Jarrett has given a keynote speech at a ISNA conference, other White House personnel have attended ISNA events. Congressional Democrats such as Keith Ellison, Nancy Pelosi and DCCC Chairman Steve Israel have headlined CAIR events, NJ Democrat Bill Pascrell allowed CAIR to use a Capitol conference room for an event, and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) presented a Certificate of Congressional Recognition to CAIR, just to name a few.

With support of Muslim Brotherhood affiliated organization at the White House as well as Congressional Democrats, the bill to sanction the organization as a terrorist one, will most likely face strong opposition.

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 26th,2016

[link] to the news article … .. if there had been anywhere near the turnout in 2010 [or , matter of fact , in 2014] in 2012 or/and 2008 , Barack Obama would never have been elected / re – elected POTUS . He knows it , and his campaign brain trust knows it …. thus the massive voter suppression , courtesy of the monkeyshines at the I.R.S. … .. Miz Hillary [or any other DemoCrap] will have to build a new coalition . They cannot count on elevated levels of minority turnout , no matter how hard they try . She is not a minority , and after His Lordship , there will not be the same affinity towards the possible first woman [as against the first Black POTUS] …
