… A Real Deal Leader [#Jordan ‘ s King Abdullah II]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 17th,2016

.. talking about about guts , courage , and leadership ..

.. POTUS does not know the meaning of these words . His Most Excellent Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan exudes them …

.. the Jordanians have always tried to steer a middle – of – the – road [more or less ] moderate course in the Middle East . In many cases , Jordan has been a leader in the peacekeeping and peacemaking processes . So , they know what is required , and they walk the walk ..

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

.. Jordan has really been shaken by the cruel and barbaric murder of their fighter pilot hero by I.S.I.L . I.S.I.L. thought that by doing this that they would try to intimidate the Jordanians … Boy , are they ever wrong.

King Abdullah II (Jordan)

.. now , the Jordanians are taking a lead role in the war against ISIL . They are setting an example for other Arab nations to follow . By doing so , they are also sending the U.S. a stern message : …

.. remember the old adage — Lead , Follow , or Get the [Bleep] Out of the Way !! …

… Do Not Confirm Loretta Lynch [#US AG]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 27th,2015

.. she is not qualified for the job .

.. there are waaay too many questions about her conduct on the job as US Atty in the Eastern District of New York [Brooklyn] . She has conduct far too many questionable actions as the people ‘ s atty for her to be able to be confirmed as AG .

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

.. there is also a much bigger question . She was questioned by members of the US Senate during her so – called confirmation hearings . Before the first of the year [while the DemoCraps controlled the Senate] , Dingy Harry Reid & Co could have easily pushed her nomination through . It would have been a honey of a battle , but it could have been done . However , Dingy Harry & Co demurred from the fight . I am not sure as to why …

.. The capstone on her lack of qualification for the office is an answer to a question during her confirmation hearings . Senator Jeff Sessions [R-Al] posed to her a question about His Lordship ‘ s alleged ” Executive Action ” on immigration . Lynch could have dodged the question , or said that she did not support the action . However , she did not . She said that what POTUS had done is both legal and constitutional .

.. For a prospective AG to do that on an issue that is clearly both illegal and unconstitutional makes her patently unqualified to be Attorney General of the United States . There are also other far more qualified candidates …

… Well Done , Senator Ted Cruz [R – Tx]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 17th,2014

.. Ted Cruz went to a conference , one that carried plenty of controversy …

.. yes , it was a conference of evangelical Christians . However , they were Middle Easterners , to boot . Worse , they were Lebanese and Palestinians . Not an easy audience to please …

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

.. Ted had the guts to speak his mind . He did not shy away from either the subject material or the controversy . He went , he spoke , and he lead . Well done !! …

.. the audience did not like what he was saying [Cruz was vehemently pro – Israel] and they booed . Then , they continued to boo . However , Senator Cruz left the stage on his terms , not theirs . His doing so will put him in much better stead with the GOP leadership in Texas as well as in D.C. ….

… It is Far More Important , Megan ! [investigating Ferguson case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 12th,2014

..what happened in Ferguson , Mo , is a common , relatively ordinary police shooting ….

.. it is , most likely , NOT a federal case …

.. from most of the facts in , Micheal Brown provoked the attack on police officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson PD . Brown and his ” friend ” were insolent and insulting , and then turned on and attacked Officer Wilson . So far , from the evidence , that is what I believe precipitated the shooting …

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

.. anyone who attacks a police officer , either with a head butt or with a punch is asking to be shot at . The cop is injured . The perp starts to flee , and then turns , and charges at the officer . That is a prescription for getting your butt shot at multiple times …

… Netanyahu ‘ s First Duty [#Israel]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 7th,2014

.. is to Israel , first , foremost , and always ..

.. no matter how much bullying and intimidation comes from the ObamaCraps , the United States will always be an ally of Israel . Right Now , His Lordship is an outlier . He is as anti – Israel an American president as there has ever been . Virtually any other Democrat worth a damn is willing to stand foursquare fully by Israel . They do not have to like everything an Israeli PM does . Most US Presidents do not , from time to time …

.. But Obama is risking Democrat ties to Israel and the Jewish vote with his acts towards Israel . Israel is actually acquiring some old allies , like Egypt . Egypt will never be a warm ally of Israel . But , the Egyptians will have many common interests with Israel , and will act accordingly . They want Hamas gone as much as Israel does . They are not the only ones ..

.. the Gulf states (virtually all of them , including Kuwait and Saudi Arabia) , in particular , the Saudis , are becoming more warm towards Israel . Like Egypt , they will never be buddy – buddy . However , they will have many common strategic interests with Israel , and will be willing [under the table , of course] , to act on them . So , Israel ‘ s strategic situation is not as dire as many people might think …

.. Turkey is a problem child . Recep Erdogan does have a lot of power . The problem is , that Turkey is a secular Muslim country . Nothing that Erdogan does or tries will change that . They are no longer buddy – buddy with Israel , but Erdogan is not stupid . The U.S. would side with Israel in a head – butting over Turkey , like it or not …

.. I wonder how arrogant and damn narcissistic Barack Obama really is . He is really playing with fire with the situation with Israel . Putting Israel at grave risk could cause a great re – evaluation in the Jewish vote , and that would accelerate a great upcoming change in Judaism .

..It is becoming steadily younger , and much more conservative . It will not p=ut New York in play , or Chicago , However , it would put Delaware in pink state territory , along with New Jersey . It would make Conneticut light blue , as worst , and make Illinois and Minnesota toss – up states ….

.. Bibi ‘ s first duty is to his own nation . Its own security , and its own future . It means standing up to an ally , especially when the nation backs you , but the POTUS is a god – damn jackass …

.. POTUS has to be careful , too . If he places Israel in grave danger , and gets caught in the act , Democrats could easily find it a much easier time to vote for impeachment or for POTUS ‘ conviction at trial in the Senate …

… Pam Geller is Right ; the U.K. is wrong …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 28th,2014

.. Pam Geller is one of the finest people around .

.. there are fewer than I can think of that have more spark and more courage and drive than she does . I can think of very few people that are more blunt and on point than she is …

.. see her latest column that she submitted for WorldNetDaily , and you will see why …

.. [h/t — PamelaGeller]..
.. [link] to the column ..

.. the text of the column ..

The first-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon jihad bombing was marked by a notable and predictable absence.

All the observances, commemorations and coverage studiously avoided mentioning why the attack happened in the first place: There was no mention of jihad. In all of the pomp, tribute, memorials and wall-to-wall coverage of this terrible anniversary, everyone from President Obama on down had a lot to say. A lot of nothing.

A lot of meaningless rhetoric and feel-good nonsense. Three people were murdered and more than 250 were wounded, many maimed for life – and on the first anniversary, the New York Times ran sympathy propaganda commiserating not with the victims, but with the jihad filth Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

An article headlined, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation,” began this way: “He cannot mingle, speak or pray with other prisoners. His only visitors are his legal team, a mental health consultant and his immediate family, who apparently have seen him only rarely.” This holy warrior should have been sentenced to death by a military tribunal. This is moral inversion. Sick and depraved, the New York Times has sunk to an altogether new low. Is it any wonder that its circulation is in the tank and sinking fast? These creeps deserve to go out of business.

The restrictions on the movements of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are designated for those who pose the greatest threat to others. But the New York Times pooh-poohs that, because “there is little of substance to suggest that Mr. Tsarnaev, 20, and his brother Tamerlan were anything but isolated, homegrown terrorists.” So what? What difference does it make if they were waging jihad alone or with a group?

They blew up the Boston Marathon, targeting thousands of families. They are part of the global jihad. The New York Times has really gone over to the dark side. And it is not alone. The city of Boston paid “solemn tribute” last Tuesday to the victims of the bombing. But as is shown by the cancellation of an honorary degree that was to be awarded to Ayaan Hirsi Ali at Brandeis, one of the city’s leading universities, as well as by the city’s refusal to run the counter-jihad ads of my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, Boston has not yet faced the full reality of what happened there on April 15, 2013.

President Obama said at the “solemn tribute”: “One year later, we also stand in awe of the men and women who continue to inspire us.” Standing in awe of innocent people who were casualties in a jihad attack is meaningless. Neither he nor anyone else said anything about the ideology that motivates this global war against freedom. And his vice president rivaled Obama’s empty rhetoric. Joe Biden said: “We are America, we own the finish line.” What does that even mean? Hey Biden, they bombed the finish line. And even worse than that, Biden told survivors of the bombing that “it was worth it.” He said: “Even though I’m not a Boston fan, I love you guys, man.”

Not a Boston fan? People were killed, and he is talking about sports? And then he added, “My God, you have survived and you have soared. … it was worth it. I mean this sincerely, just to hear each of you speak.” America elected this clown and his jihadophilic boss.

Imagine if a Republican ever uttered such words. But it’s a Democrat, so the enemedia don’t even cover it. They don’t have a single word to say about it. But worse than that is the fact that even after people are blown to bits on an American city street, we still refuse to discuss the identity, motives and goals of the enemy. We are farther back now than we were before Sept. 11. Every time I hear “Boston Strong,” I cringe. Sorry, but this defeatism and fear is anything but strong. Refusal to name the enemy is anything but strong. Not daring to speak its name is not strong. It’s surrender.

… Thank You Nick Searcy !! [#GosnellMovie endorsement]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 25th,2014

.. many of you know Nick Searcy for his acting on ” Justified ” on FX (I think) . I know him better from the crotchety security chief on the sci – fi adventure from a decade ago , entitled ” Seven Days . ”

.. not many Hollywood actors these days take loud public stands . Even fewer take those stands on moral issues on which they have strong moral stands . These folks avoid that stuff like the plague . Not Nicholas Searcy ..

.. In this case , it is a fundraiser for the movie , to be titled ” Gosnell . ” It is either to be a 2 to 3 hour TV movie , or possibly a 4 hour miniseries , about the actions and the story of the horrors of the now – infamous mass murderer and abortionist defrocked former Dr. Kermit Gosnell . He ran that hellhole of an abortion clinic just outside suburban Philadelphia for years , and got away with making many people ‘ s lives a living hell , ending the brief lives of many innocents . Even more tragic was the gross lack of media coverage of the trial , and the results thereof …

.. I heartily support this movie , Nick Searcy , and his fundraising effort . if you wish to contribute , go to : …GosnellMovie.com . It is a movie that is being produced by Phelim McAleer and his friends . It is Phelim ‘ s YouTube ad that I am hoping that you will go to see this very worthy contribution by Nick . He has guts . May God Bless everyone involved so that this movie can be made …

.. [h/t — YouTube]..

.. [link] to the Nick Searcy speech … (it is a little less than 2 minutes , so it is not long) (please , go to watch it ! )

.. A big thank you ! to independent fundraising outfit IndieGogo for aiding greatly in this effort …

… There are Better Ways to Enforce the Law …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 22nd,2014

.. and the ObamaCraps should know better .

.. the ObamaCraps are no shining shield as to the enforcement of the law . Their actions vis-à-vis ObamaCrapCare are example # 1 in the effort …

.. the ObamaCraps have absoluted failed in the effort . Fast and Furious is an abject embarrassment . Not only Americans have died , but many Mexicans have died as a result of the corruption . The ObamaCrap Administration has gravely abused the doctrine of executive privilege in order to protect Administration misconduct . Just how bad can things get ?

.. Judge Napolitano is right . The antics at the Bundy Ranch have crystallized people ‘ s feelings about the government and its conduct ..
