… You Break It , You Own It [#command responsibility]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 5th,2016

.. the uniformed military understands it well ..

.. it is the doctrine of ” command responsibility … ” . What it means , simply , is that you are responsible for the actions of those officers and men and women under your command . Simple …

.. POTUS FAILS to understand this on a consistent basis …. hE had better , or history will be a very harsh judge of his actions while POTUS …

— [update] — POTUS is going to get a harsh lesson on this in the coming months …

… Now POTUS has a Problem [#Schmuckie Schumer]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,June 10th,2016

.. well , Charles [Schmuckie] Schumer is up for a promotion . He is in a strong position to become the next Democratic leader in the US Senate …

.. Dingy Harry Reid would never have tried to pull a stunt like this on the First Wuss . not a chace . Reid is too loyal , and is too much of a schmuck . Schumer is very much an ultra – liberal , but he is also very unpredictable …

.. especially now , and on this issue …

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

.. well , it appears that Schumckie is going to lead a significant number of DemoCraps on the Iran nuclear deal issue . he will lead them in a fashion that will definitely not please His Lordship , not one bit …

.. with Schmukie ‘ s support , you will be likely to get a number of other senior DemoCraps to come along with him . That boost in support may well give the congressional bill [ the Corker – Menendez bill] on Iran nuclear sanctions more than the 2/3rds support that it needs to overcome an expected presidential veto …

.. no what does the first Wuss do ?!?!

… Missouri Governor Jay Nixon should resign [#failure]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 28th,2016

.. if he does not , then he must be impeached , tried , convicted , and removed from office …

.. the greater Saint Louis area had plenty of warning about the release of the grand jury decision . Governor Nixon obviously knew what might be coming . He is the commanding officer of his state ‘ s National Guard . He should have damn well known what could have happened in the potential aftermath of the announcement …

.. well , he [bleeped] up . Huge . The National Guard was mobilized . But only 750 troops . When much more were needed …

.. eventually , Governor Nixon called up an additional 1,500 National Guardsmen and Guardswomen . Finally , at last …. now , things are much more peaceful , at last …

.. however , it is a responsibility that Governor Nixon must bear , and bear alone . He is alone command responsible for what he does or does not do to help deal with the situation . He could have and should have done far better to help deal with the situation . Evidently , the Mayors of Ferguson and St. Louis [city] both wanted to reach Gov. Nixon regarding the National Guard . They could not . That is unforgivable , given the situation . There must be accountability for this situation …

.. Jay Nixon must resign as Governor of Missouri . If he does not , he must be impeached and removed from office …

… POTUS made a Loo – Loo [#blunder]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,March 24th,2016

.. boy , did Obama make a goof ..

.. except he is so arrogant and narcissistic , he does not believe that he has made one …

.. it has also put Dingy Harry Reid in a real political box , one in which it will not believe it will be easy to get the Senate Dems out of …

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

.. as joel Gehrke puts it , POTUS made a real blunder in going with his E.O. so early in the Lame Duck session . Because of it , the House can add the funding ban onto the appropriation bill , or even onto a Continuing Resolution . The C.R. can be made to only last partway through the Fiscal Year . Then , the Senate [and Dingy Harry] can be put in  a  real box ….

.. ergo , POTUS can be put into a real tough situation . Does he want to shut down the  government over his lawless  E.O. , or not . He just might , especially at ChristmasTime …

… If Loretta Lynch has lost John McCain [#AG nomination]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 28th,2015

.. then the effort to confirm her is indeed in deep trouble .

.. the GOP now controls the US Senate . The DemoCraps do not . The DummyCraps can stammer , huff , puff , and try to blow a house down all that they want , but as long as the majority holds firm , Lynch ‘ s nomination will not receive a vote . At the very least , not anytime soon ..

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

.. right now , the nomination is in real trouble . US Sen John McCain [R-Az] has come out openly against her nomination . Much more so is why he did . He has stated specifically that her position on POTUS ‘ so – called Executive Action on Immigration [which came out during questioning for her confirmation hearings] is what made him come out so openly against her …

.. She will not get a vote anytime soon . A good number of committee chairmen are against her . I suspect most of the Senate leadership has decided to vote her nomination down . But the Majority Leader ? That I am not sure of , yet . if he decides to oppose her , then her nomination is effectively dead , no matter how much His Lordship and the Senate DemoCraps protest …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 11th,2015

.. unbelievable ..

.. what a colossal jackhole !! ..

.. berating Jesus Christ and Christianity is bad enough , but to do it at the National Prayer BreakfasT ?!?! ….

.. [h/t — Breitbart.com(BigGovernment)]..
.. [link] to the blog post // speech segment ..

.. the bastard cannot even begin to get himself to use words like ” Islamic Jihad , ” ” Islamic terrorism , ” and others . How sick is that ! …

.. then , he hauls off and castigates Christ and Christianity ?! … Outrageous ! …

… the Department of Homeland Security has Been ” Shackled ” [#executive amnesty]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 17th,2014

… D.H.S. IS ONLY FUNDED through February ..

.. after that , then the Dhs HAS to shut down . They will not have any legal authority to spend any money , under law …

.. Then the Congress [under full GOP control] can go to war with POTUS over the Executive Amnesty issue …

.. the rest of the government will be open and fully functional . Nothing else will be shut down . No ” Washington Monument ” strategy , either …

.. the battle will come …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 2nd,2014

.. boy , did she not need this kind of blunder ..

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the news report …

.. these days , you have to be very careful of what you Say . No matter where you go . If you screw up , the blunder has a nasty habit of boomeranging right back at you , and then hitting you right between the eyes ….

… Interesting Poll Results — in Illinois [#you bet!]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 11th,2014

.. no , this is not an outlier , nor is it a joke .

.. Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is in big trouble .

.. Bruce Rauner has not won the race . But , his message is getting through to Illinois voters , and that has to scare the hell out of DemoCraps nationwide . Because , if it will sell in Illinois , boy , it will sell elsewhere in the good ol ‘ U.S.A. …

.. [h/t — politics.SunTimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Basically , Rauner is leading Quinn , 47 % to 34 % . Ouch . Illinois voters are not entierely sold on Rauner ‘ s economic plan . But , they are much more willing to give Rauner a fighting chance to give his plan a chance to work . Which also means his potentioal victory , if it happens , could have some serious coattails …

.. the Illinois legislature is , as one would think , controlled by the DemoCraps . It is 40 to 19 in the State Senate [one – half of seats up] , and it is 71 to 48 in the State House [all seats up] …. the Senate would likely not swing , but the State House is different …. Also , a number of moderate Democrats could be persuaded to switch parties . It has happened else , so why not Illinois …

.. with the State Senate , it depends on what seats that are up . The Illinois House is a different matter . Things got realclose after 2010 , but then came redistrictiong , and now the current advantage . A large victory , combined with a swing in one or both chambers would be of huge help to a Gov Rauner …

.. Rauner is no moderate . He is definitely a conservative . Not quite a TEa Partier , though . Conservative in Illinois is more than good enough …
