… We are a Nation of Laws …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,January 2nd,2017

.. and we have a right to expect that the Administration enforce the ” body of law ” as a whole .

.. the Federal Government has a need and a right to set priorities and make choices . But , it should be made known that the entire work , the entire ” body of law ” as a whole should be enforce . In that way , our rights and liberties will be safeguarded , and the Government will respect our laws and our system of government …

… Prosecutorial Discretion is [#what is it]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 31st,2016

.. what is it ? ..

.. well , it is the act of making choices ..

.. what POTUS is doing is not prosecutorial discretion . It is a blatant , illegal , and lawless powergrab …

.. what prosecutorial discretion is is the willingness to enforce the body of law . It means the ability and choice to do so as a whole , not in pieces …

.. it means setting priorities , but it still means doing your duty . Obama and his cronies are doing no such thing …

.. what POTUS is doing is what I would define as the most certain ” impeachable offense … “

… Don’t Just Radically Downsize the F.C.C. [#eliminate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 13th,2016

.. to be honest , eliminate it .

.. the F.C.C. is , in effect , a superfluous agency . Its functions are redundant , and are held elsewhere by agencies that are far better able to handle its various functions …

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

.. so , do not just stop at a radical reduction of the F.C.C. . Better yet , go for the full enchilada . Given the F.C.C. ‘ s [and the ObamaCrap White House ‘ s] conduct in this so – called ” Net Neutrality debate , the F.C.C. has effectively sealed its own fate …

.. eliminate it …

… An Ammo Ban ?? [#gun grab]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 1st,2016

.. are the ObamaCraps that crazy ?!?! …

.. it appears so .

.. amazingly , the ObamaCrap Administration is getting ready to ban the ammunition that is primarily used in the AR – 15 rifle , one of our country ‘ s most famous and most respected weapons . Doing something like this would be the equivalent of political suicide for the Dems …

.. Why ?? …

.. [h/t — ReclaimOurRepublic.wordpress.com]..
.. [link] to the video clip …

.. the Congressional Dems would have to answer for the Administration ‘ s actions . The GOP runs the hill . The leadership will see to that , for damn sure ‘ s sake …

.. Democratic candidates around the country would have to answer for the ObamaCraps ‘ actions . GOP candidates would be salivating at the chops to do that , to be damn certain ..

.. most of all , the Dem Presidential candidates would have to deal with it . They would hate it . It would put certain states [Michigan and Pennsylvania , in particular , in play because of it]…

… It Was Not Just the ObamaCrapCare Architect [#IRS Subsidies Rule]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 6th,2016

.. no , it was not just the architect of ObamaCrapCare ..

.. the IRS itself was in on the shenanigans …

.. an excellent column by Kim Strassel [WSJ] points out that the career staff at the IRS initially followed the law , to the letter . That meant that it would be subsidies in state – based exchanges ONLY . The situation changes when it was kicked up for political backing to the highest levels of the Service …

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

.. at that level , the chief counsel [a political appointee] and the Commissioner [ditto] had a very serious problem . Most likely , they got heavy duty heat from the ObamaCraps at the White House . Guess What Happened ?? ..

.. the ruling changed . by July of 2011 , the ruling came out in its final form , having it as subsidies for ALL … a couple of weeks later , Professor Jonathan Alter of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland , Ohio and Micheal Cannon of the Cato Institute came out with their famous paper … [– note — it is available from the Social Science Research Network , and there is a link , [here]]

… and These Idiots Want Congress to Pass a Bill [#Immigration Reform]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 20th,2016

.. when the ObamaCrap Administration cannot obey a simple injunction that is issued by a judge …

.. the State of Texas and 25 other states brought a suit to stop His Lordship ‘ s abusive executive actions . They got lucky , and found a sympathetic judge in Texas . District Judge Andrew Hanen issued an injunction that blocked his executive action on immigration . So what else happens …

.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. those idiots continued to issue even more DAPA permits , even though a federal judge said NO ! . Oh , the federal judge is going to love this …

… TIGTA has no Choice [#e – mail release]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 8th,2016

.. the TIGTA [the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration] is in a really sticky wicket . There are documents responsive to a F.O.I.A. request , ones that were once thought lost from the hard drive and e – mail account of Lois Lerner . Well , they were indeed backed up , and then recovered ….

.. the media is really slow , and asleep at the switch . The LameStreamMedia is especially guilty of this . They really do not realize how thermonuclear that this extention of the IRSGate scandal really has become …

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

.. TIGTA has no choice . He is under a court order . He is going to have to produce those so -called ” responsive ” documents [which are e – mails] to the Federal Judge ….

.. then , the Judge can review them …

.. then , Katy Bar the door …

… the I.R.S. is Doing What [#secret deal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 29th,2016

.. you have got to be kidding .

.. making a secret deal is bad enough . Doing it with the anti – religious radicals at the Freedom from Religion Foundation is even worse …

.. What could be even worse ? ..

.. [h/t — pjmedia.com/tattler]..
.. [link] to the blog article …

.. these two parties working to enforce a blatanly unconstitutional law . That is the definition of worse . The Johnson amendment was a creation of then – Senate Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson . He hated the guts of a number of Texas pastors who were blasting him and his policies . So , he developed a way to work to ” silence ” them . Thus the Johnson Amendment …

.. given the legislative history , and the bill ‘ s intent , it is clearly unconstitutional . It was intended to silence people who had and have every perfect right to speak out in public . Even if they want to politic from the pulpit …. Given past and present practice , the DummyCraps are hardly one to complain about it . They get away with bloody murder every election season , so zip it . Quit complaining about it . Strike the damn amendment …

… Earth to I.R.S. — You Have a Problem [#F.O.I.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 23rd,2016

.. the I.R.S. may think that it is above it all . However , it is not …

.. the I.R.S. received an F.O.I.A. request for documents . They are public documents , not private ones related to anyone ‘ s tax file . So , Infernal Service , you guys and gals have a problem …

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

.. the documents are already in the public domain . They relate to a ” sue and settle ” stunt that the Infernal Service pulled with the radicals from the Freedom from Religion Foundation . They did that so the loonie lefties could get their way , and try to keep the information out of the public eye . Fat chance …

.. uh , guys . That court settlement is public record . So those documents are of the public record . So the I.R.S. is subject to the Freedom of Information Act , and must respond to the requests of the A.D.F and Judicial Watch …

They were chased eastward , towards the suburbs of East Cleveland and Euclid , and they were finally stopped by stop sticks …

.. what happened next is what has caused such an uproar . The police officers opened fire on the couple ,for whatever reasons I do not know . That couple was unarmed . Officer Brelo jumped up on the couple ‘ s car , and continued to fire at them . Both of them [the couple] died as a result of the altercation …

… Now a Court is Showing some Sense [#Hands on Originals]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 16th,2016

.. Hands on Originals is a simple business . They generally sell t – shirts ..

.. however , that is also where it got them into trouble …

.. the local Gay & Lesbian Services Organization [GLSO] wanted to have some t – shirts made up to support one of their events . One of the owners of HOO objected . As a result , the GLSO filed a complaint in the county Human Rights Commission …

.. when that body ruled against them . HOO sued in court . Given the current legal climate , they did not expect the best of news . However , the judge in the case ruled in their favour …

.. [h/t — VolokhConspiracy.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // legal opinion ..

.. I am going to include a lengthy clip from the blog post by Professor Eugene Volokh , of UCLA . He is the one who the blog is named for and who founded it . Professor Volokh explains things far better than I can , but it is a dandy explanation of the judge ‘ s reasoning . However , it is a bit lengthy , though …

The Commission decided in favor of Baker, but on Monday, in Hands on Originals, Inc. v. Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission, a Kentucky trial court judge disagreed.

1. First, the judge concluded that Hands on Originals was discriminating based on the pro-gay-pride message that GLSO wanted printed, not based on the sexual orientation of GLSO’s representatives or members. This suggests that the judge thought the ordinance just didn’t apply on its own terms, quite apart from any restrictions imposed by the First Amendment or by Kentucky’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. But as I read the opinion, the judge didn’t make any such specific finding about the inapplicability of the ordinance.

2. The judge did conclude, though, that applying the ordinance to Hands on Originals’ actions violated the First Amendment:

[“T]he right of freedom of thought protected by the First Amendment against state action includes both the right to speak freely and the right to refrain from speaking at all.[”] … The [Commission] attempted to distinguish [the compelled speech precedents] from the case at bar with the explanation that “In this case there was no government mandate that the Respondent (HOO) speak.”… [But i]n fact, HOO and its owners, because they refused to print the GLSO t-shirts that offended their sincerely held religious beliefs, have been punished for the exercise of their Constitutional rights to refrain from being forced to speak….

The Commission in its oral argument says it is not trying to infringe on the Constitutional Rights of HOO and its owners but is seeking only to have HOO “…treat everyone the same.” Yet, HOO has demonstrated in this record that it has done just that. It has treated homosexual and heterosexual groups the same. In 2010, 2011 and 2012, HOO declined to print at least thirteen (13) orders for message based reasons. Those print orders that were refused by HOO included shirts promoting a strip club, pens promoting a sexually explicit video, and shirts containing a violence related message.

There is further evidence in the Commission record that it is standard practice within the promotional printing industry to decline to print materials containing messages that the owners do not want to support. Nonetheless, the Commission punished HOO for declining to print messages advocating sexual activity to which HOO and its owners strongly oppose on sincerely held religious grounds.

HOO did not decline to print the t-shirts in question or work with GLSO representatives because of the sexual orientation of the representatives that communicated with HOO. It is undisputed that neither [of the] HOO representatives … knew or inquired about the sexual orientation of either GLSO representatives …. Rather, … the conversation between GLSO representative … and HOO [co-]owner [Blaine] Adamson was about GLSO’s mission and what the organization generally promoted…. HOO’s declination to print the shirts was based upon the message of GLSO and the Pride Festival and not on the sexual orientation of its representatives or members….

If Massachusetts could not compel [St. Patrick’s Day] parade organizers to include a group advocating a [gay rights] message that the parade organizers did not support, [Hurley v. Irish-American Gay, Lesbian & Bisexual Group of Boston (1995),] how can the LFUCG Human Rights Commission interpret the “Fairness Ordinance” to compel HOO and its owners to print a t-shirt conveying a message that HOO and its owners do not support and in fact find blasphemous? The Court holds that the Commission cannot take this action consistent with the U.S. Constitution….

This Court has undertaken review of this case based upon … the doctrine of “strict scrutiny.” … This Court does not fault the Commission in its interest in insuring citizens have equal access to services but that is not what this case is all about. There is no evidence in this record that HOO or its owners refused to print the t-shirts in question based upon the sexual orientation of GLSO or its members or representatives that contacted HOO. Rather, it is clear beyond dispute that HOO and its owners declined to print the t-shirts in question because of the MESSAGE advocating sexual activity outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. The well established Constitutional rights of HOO and its owners on this issue is well settled and requires action by this Court….

3. The court also held that the commission’s actions violated the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which provides,

Government shall not substantially burden a person’s freedom of religion. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be substantially burdened unless the government proves by clear and convincing evidence that it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A “burden” shall include indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion of programs or access to facilities.

The court first concluded, following the reasoning of the U.S. Supreme Court in Hobby Lobby (where the Court was interpreting a very similar federal statutory scheme) that the Kentucky RFRA applied to corporations such as Hands On Originals, and, “[b]ecause the Commission’s Order requires HOO and its owners to print shirts that convey messages contrary to their faith, that Order inflicts a substantial burden on their free exercise of religion.” And the court then concluded that the commission’s actions can’t be justified under the “strict scrutiny” (“compelling governmental interest” / “least restrictive means”) exception that the Kentucky RFRA provides:

[T]he Commission has not even attempted, much less shown by “clear and convincing evidence” or otherwise, that it has any compelling government interest in the consequences imposed upon HOO and its owners in this case. As previously mentioned, it is the understanding of this Court based on the record that GLSO was able to obtain printing of the t-shirts in question at a substantially reduced price or perhaps even had them printed for free. This was the offer extended by HOO owner Adamson in the initial phone conversation with a GLSO representative to refer GLSO to another printing company to do the work for the same price quoted by HOO. The Court holds that the Commission has not proven by clear and convincing evidence or otherwise that it has a compelling governmental interest to enforce in this case….

The analysis seems quite right to me. I expect there will be an appeal, so we’ll see what the Kentucky appellate courts have to say about this.

… Don’t Those Knuckleheads Ever Learn [#US Treasury][#tax inversion]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 6th,2016

.. it seems that Our country ‘ s Treasury Department is a glutton for punishment . Also , they want to be stuck in court with multiple court cases ..

.. So , what the fart is the big brawl all about with these ” tax inversions ?? ” …

.. simple , and for 2 reasons . One is our country ‘ s tax rate . Currently our’ s top tax rate for corporations is about 35.0% , which is the highest in the Western World . Having a rate that high is going to inspire many attempts to go to tax havens , and the use of tax dodges ..

.. [h/t — Reuteurs.com/business]..
.. [link] to the blog post news ..

.. the other is the way our country taxes corporations . Worldwide , companies are taxed generally one way . They only pay tax on the earnings on the income earned in that specific country . Our does it radically different . Our country taxes income on companies on a worldwide business basis . It just does not mean our nation alone , but in every other country on the planet ..

.. Treasury is trying to legislate by ” executive order ” or by regulation . Oops . Regulations may interpret and implement existing law . They may not act to write new law . That is Congress ‘ job ,folks ..

.. So , what happens ? The stuff get challenged in court , and by a company willing to take on the battle .most companies do not want the to spend the fuss or the tIme .But some do . Those are the ones that will benefit from the battle [and the expense]…

… I Have Heard of ” El Cheapo , ” but .. [#AZ][#Maricopa County][#polling station]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 3rd,2016

. there is being cheap , and then there is …

.. this is [was] insane ..

.. I will use my home state of Ohio as an example . Also , my home county OF Cuyahoga County . Ohio and Arizona are roughly the same size . However , Ohio has 88 counties , while Arizona has only 15 . Just 15 . so , Arizona ‘ s counties are far larger than Ohio ‘ s ..

.. [h/t — Rare.US]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. my home county [Cuyahoga County , in Ohio] is 1,250 square miles , but about 65% of that is water [Lake Erie] . Maricopa County [Arizona] , which had all of these problems , has nearly 8,400 square miles . Maricopa has 3 cities [ ] that are of 500,000 people or more , and Phoenix [the state capital , and also the county seat] is nearly 2.5 million people . Phoenix , for example , is eventally going to pass Chicago as our country ‘ s 3rd largest city . That is , if Las Vegas does not catch and pass them first ..

.. in Cuyahoga County , we have about 1,600 voting precints . Yup , the whole county . Each one has a voting station of its very own . I have worked the polls a number of times , so I know that very , very well . Yet some idiot thought that it would be a great idea for Maricopa County to go down from 200 polling stations to just 60 stations ..

.. Just 60 polling stations . How incredibly stupid was that move ..

.. the Feds and the State of Arizona are going to be tripping over themselves to investigate this mess . I don’t blame them , for once . I would trust the state , though , far more than the FEds . Remember the OCs , and the legal poisoning of the Department of InJustice ..

.. you folks need more polling stations in Maricopa County . One whole hell of a lot more . 60 polling stations for a county of roughly [4.2] million people over a land area of about 9,200 sq miles . Un – uh ..

 

.. [p.s.] — when it comes to law enforcement , at LEAST give ” Sheriff joe ” Arpaio a break . Given how damn big Maricopa County really is , he has a lot to do ..

… 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 …

.. What is his biggest failure ? My guestimate is that his gross failure to enforce the law . He has failed at that very , very badly . His gross misuse of the tools of his office is a close second …

… You Have to Be Kidding [#sham marriage suit in Oregon]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 6th,2014

.. yet , here it is …

.. having to deal with a radical activist AG in Oregon is bad enough .

.. in a case in an Appeals Circuit [the 9th Circuit] that is the very worst for radical activism in the U.S. is even worse . This circuit was the home base for the pro – so – called gay marriage case Hollingsworth v Perry , right out of California …

.. but active collusion betwee the parties ?? … come on ??? …

.. it is clear from the documentation that the National Organization of Marriage has got the State and the opposing parties dead to rights . They were caught in the act of active and open collusion before , during , and after the court case . Even during the appeallate phase …

.. it is clear that this case should be vacated and reversed . It will be brought again , without doubt . However , the private parties should be allowed to fight it out . The state of Oregon should be ordered to stay out of it , and should be severely sanctioned for its misconduct …

Earlier today  the U.S. Supreme Court put on hold a district court injunction against changes to Ohio’s voting rules.  Splitting 5-4, the Court granted the order sought by the state, overturning the judgment of a three judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  No opinions accompanied the order.  A petition for rehearing en banc remains pending before the Sixth Circuit.

As a consequence of the Court’s order, recently enacted changes to Ohio’s voting rules will be in effect for the November elections.  Among the changes are a reduction in the in-person early voting period from 35 days before the election to 28 days, a reduction in weekend voting, and the elimination of nighttime early voting. Here are early reports from SCOTUSBlog, the Columbus Dispatch and the Post’s Robert Barnes.

… It is You & POTUS who are the Bigots , Mr A. G. …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 23rd,2014

.. we deal with people on the level .

.. we deal with them as individuals ..

.. we do not ignore one ‘ s race , Mr. Attorney General . We also do not obsess on it , either .

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

.. it is you and POTUS who are obsessed with race . You see it in people ‘ s actions and reactions anywhere and everywhere . To accuse others of it is wrong , and it is the height of bias and bigotry …

.. so , shut up and resign . While you are at it , take POTUS with you …

… I hope the States will Go after the Feds [#illegal immigration]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 17th,2014

.. what is happening on the border and on the interior is immoral and outrageous . That the federal government is complicit in these procedings is evil …

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

.. I hope that the states group together and go after the Feds . The current lawsuit by border patrol agents against the Federal Government [Crane v Napolitano would be the perfect vehicle . The states could join in as plaintiffs , if the border patrol union agreed . if the Feds (our Feds , not the Mexican Federales) are stupid enough to appeal this critical legal case , then they deserve every bit of legal hell that they would get from the judiciary .

.. Right now , Crane is at the Fifth Appeallate Circuit , where the Government lost . They have a certain amount of time to decide what they want to do . Appealing would be dangerous . Not appealing would be even more dangerous . So , it is damned if you do , and damned if you don’t ..
