… An Amazing and Dynamic Speaker [#Dr. Ben Carson]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,January 14th,2017

.. this is a link to the Defending the Dream summit . It is well worth you while …

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

.. it will be very interesting to see whether he runs for President or not . I think that he just might ….

— [update] — Dr. Ben Carson did indeed run for POTUS . But ,  unfortunately , his campaign has not proven out to be as  well run and as dynamic as he wanted or he  desired …

.. Carson does indeed have a future on the national stage . In what manner or fashion will largely be up to him . He would make an excellent VP pick or possibly even a cabinet secretary . I am not sure , though that he may want that . He will take stock of his first foray into presidential politics , evaluate what went right , what did not , and make the necessary changes …. Ben Carson is no one ‘ s fool .  he will learn , and learn quickly ..

… It is a Teaching Moment for the Church [#marriage]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 15th,2016

.. and , as usual , the LameStream media missed it , completely …

.. the Holy Father was trying to send multiple messages as Bishop of Rome , as well as Pope , to the world at large by officiating at a marriage ceremony . A Pope doing this , especially in public , is extraordinarily rare [Saint John Paul II was the last to do so , in 1998] ….

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

.. yes , he is trying to send a message of inclusiveness to the church and to the world . It does not mean that he is altering church doctrine , though . What he is doing is altering [sometimes greatly] how it is presented and prepared …

.. each of the cardinals that is coming to the Synod , in addition to the Bishops , is themselves a Bishop . Pope Francis I is trying to lead and send more than one message to more than one audience in what he is doing and what he is trying to do ….

… I differ from my Church , too [#the death penalty]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 22nd,2016

.. I am a Roman Catholic , too , like the governor of my state , John Kasich ..

.. like him , I am at odds with my Church on the Death Penalty . Yes , it is a profound moral question . But it is a matter of justice , not revenge ..

.. the people of the State of Ohio have stated in our Constitution that we want the death penalty to be authorized as a method of punishment . Now that it is , we deserve that it be carried out in an effective and efficient manner . The radicals would stop that …

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

.. Our Nation ‘ s Constitution carries a similar message . It does not allow cruel and unusual punishments to be carried out , but it does allow others . The Death Penalty is specifically stated that it is neither cruel nor unususal . So , it is the job of the courts to carry to people ‘ s judgement forward ..

.. let ‘ s get on with it ….

… This Inhumanity is Barbaric [#northern Iraq]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 13th,2014

.. and the ObamaCraps are doing absolutely nothing about it …

.. while I.S.I.L. is taking over town after town , and region after region . millions are left homeless . Tens of thousands suffer torture , rape , and murder at the hands of these barbaric animals . What is D.C. doing ? …

.. absolutely nothing … That is an abomination , worse yet , a disgrace of the highest order …

… A Remarkable Speech … by A DemoCrap [#Hakeem Jeffries]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 6th,2014

.. RightScoop is Right ..

.. we may not agree on much ..

.. however , this full – throated and vocal support of Israel is striking ..

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the rally speech …

.. this guy appears to be not your standard member of the Congressional Black Caucus . My guess is that a significant part of his district , as well as the surrounding district(s) , are Jewish . Not just that , but also Central European as well as Eastern European . So , this guy is respecting a significant minority of his constituents …

.. this guy bears watching …

… Zing ! [#POTUS is a Coward]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 4th,2014

.. to be honest , he is a coward .

.. he either does not want to lead , or does not know the meaning of the word . He is not decisive . Some decisions need to be made quickly , based upon incomplete information . POTUS does not seem to get this , not in the slightest …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to Lt. Col. Peters comments …

.. most of all , POTUS has to take responsibility for his actions , also for his decisions . There is no one else there to do it . The staff cannot do it for you . It is grossly unfair and badly wrong to try to pin the blame on someone else . Even though when it is someone else ‘ s fault . You are Command Responsible , Mr. President ..

.. you alone . You cannot delegate it to anyone else , and you cannot nor should not pin it on someone else [including predecessors] …

… POTUS supports Hamas [#is he insane] ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 19th,2014

.. POTUS and his cronies support the so – called Palestinian Unity government . This is one that includes a terrorist group [Hamas] that is completely and thoroughly dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the mass murder of all Israelis . So what do these goonie birds do ? ..

.. they kidnap 3 innocents from the West Bank [Judea and Sumaria] . One of whom is an American citizen .

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

.. what is Obama thinking ? In particular , giving those bastards financial and any kind of moral support . Most of all , and most galling , is what POTUS is doing is against our law . It prohibits the financial and other support of terrorist groups and whatnot …

Funding Hamas is a direct violation of United States law:


(a) Prohibited Activities.—

(1) Unlawful conduct.— Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. To violate this paragraph, a person must have knowledge that the organization is a designated terrorist organization (as defined in subsection (g)(6)), that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorist activity (as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), or that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorism (as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989).

On Wednesday, a day before the kidnapping, 88 senators sent a bi-partisan letter to the Obama administration demanding that the United States cease its assistance to the government:


Dear Mr. President:

We are appreciative of your Administration’s dedication to achieving a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unfortunately, the recent formation of a Palestinian Authority unity government supported by Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization that has never publicly accepted the Quartet principles, represents a serious setback to efforts to achieve peace. We are gravely concerned that the formation of this government and President Abbas’ renewed effort to upgrade the status of the Palestinians within international organizations will jeopardize direct negotiations with Israel to achieve a two-state solution.

By its actions and inaction, Hamas has demonstrated it is not a partner for peace. Hamas has openly called for Israel’s destruction and last month Hamas leaders again repeated their refusal to meet recognized international demands: recognition of Israel, renunciation of terror, and acceptance of previous Israel-PLO agreements.

Recent events have consequences as to U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority as provided for in the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006 and restrictions contained in the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2014, including prohibiting foreign assistance to Hamas or any power-sharing government of which Hamas is a member or over which Hamas has undue influence. These troubling developments, including the role played by Hamas in the formation of the government, have undermined Congressional support for U.S. assistance to the Palestinians. Any assistance should only be provided when we have confidence that this new government is in full compliance with the restrictions contained in current law. We urge you to continue to impress on President Abbas the need for him to cease any alliance with terrorist organizations such as Hamas and to return to the negotiating table with Israel.

… I am Not the Only One [#Bergdahl Affair] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 7th,2014

.. I know , there are many folks who are teeing off on the freeing of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl ..

.. It is not that people are happy with Sgt. Bergdahl being free . It is with the process that was used to gain his freedom . Also , the message that it sends to the world and to our own nation …

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

.. former US Amb. to the UN John Bolton was a guest Saturday night on ” Justice ” with Judge Jeanine Pirro . Ambassador Bolton pulled no punches in laying into the ObamaCrap Administration ‘ s diplomatic , military , and legal processes in freeing the Sergeant …

.. You got it exactly right , Mr. Ambassador . What the ObamaCraps did was wrong , very , very wrong in what they did in obtaining the soldier ‘ s freedom . Worse yet is the message that it sends to others …

… This is Crazy [#Gender Bender] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 5th,2014

.. yes , I can understand some instances of sex – change surgery being necessary ..

.. once someone is old enough [18 years old would indeed be preferable] , then be checked out by doctors . Once approved , then they can go ahead with the process . Also …

.. under very limited and extraordinary circucmstances could I understand that there be public coverage [Medicare and / or Medicaid] of the process and the procedure . If the taxpayer purse is going to be asked to pay for it , there should be some very , very strict rules for it . Also , no inmates (civilian or military) should be eligible for the public funding . That would take care of the nutjobs like Bradley Manning getting his ” job ” done on the public dime …

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

.. but , at 5 years old ?!?! ..

.. no way , no way in hell …

Hollywood and the progressive liberal culture in general mock Christian or traditional upbringing as being “brainwashing”. They make movies deriding Christian summer camp as indoctrination, with children much older than Ryland. They protest adoption by Christian parents under the same logic. But that same progressive mentality does not apply in this case. And so Ryland at five years old is allowed the a choice that has some degree of finality and which will certainly impact the entire rest of his life and every other decision ever made by or for him.

Progressive liberals are quick to celebrate and embrace the decision made for Ryland by his parents. They celebrate because they believe it is tolerant and loving and nonjudgmental. Whether it is wise, prudent, or age-appropriate seems to be something Ryland’s parents at least researched and considered, and which the celebratory left cheerleaders clearly do not. Because the major life choice being made in Ryland’s case is one they admire. The same is not true of a child who recognizes and accepts their need for God, or “identifies” their “true faith.”

Isn’t that interesting.
