… Obama has made a Strategic Blunder [#Immigration]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 3rd,2016

.. oh , boy , has he ..

.. with his executive order on immigration , to be specific …

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

.. one is the timing . The House is likely to send a funding bill to the Senate for just about all of the government , less either the Department of Homeland Security , or , more specific , the Department of Citizenship and Immigration Services [which will administer the provisions of the E.O.] . it will then present the Senate with a quandary ..

.. the Senate may well have to swallow its pride , and pass the bill as is . Dingy Harry Reid may well not have the votes to pass it , otherwise …

.. the bigger will come in the new year ..

.. I am certain that the GOP will formulate a new immigration bill , Put more aptly , a set of immigration bills . Especially since they do not trust POTUS one whit , they will carefully control the agenda on this subject . They will get a bill , through , but it will be on their terms , not the DummyCraps , and definitely not his Lordship ‘ s , either . Then POTUS Will be faced with several unenviable choices …..

.. either sign the bill [on the GOP ‘ s terms] , or veto it , and piss away a signigicant chunk of the Latino vote . They want improvements in the economy and education , but a significant immigration bill , actually making it through Congress , and it being the GOP that gets the job done , will get their attention …

… Ebola as an ” October Surprise ” [#campaign issue]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 25th,2014

.. maybe , just maybe ..

.. the ObamaCrap White House has been acting like a bunch of idiots on this . Their idea of ” crisis management ” has been a disaster , as usual . You have to deal with the issue [the problem] . You cannot deal with it as a political item to be finessed , news cycle by news cycle . Crises do not work that way …

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

.. the timing could not have been worse for the DemoCraps . They need POTUS raising money . They also need him [where possible] campaigning . Right now , he can effectively do neither one . The money would be poison to the candidate , and the appearance for a campaign would be worse …

.. it also suffocates the message put out by the Dems . They are dependent on the ObamaCraps and their idea of ” crisis management . ” They may get it right , someday , but , obviously , not now …. the bad [and worse] publicity makes tyring to run the GOTV (espc w. early voting) far more difficult . The noise scares the hell out of everyone ….

… JoshBoy Earnest is not Having a Fun Time [#press briefing]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 3rd,2014

.. josh earnest is not having an easy time of it at the White House podium .

.. no one should expect peaches and cream . Nor should they expect a bed of roses , either …

.. considering the policy [bleep]up that is the ObamaCrap White House , being the new White House press secretary is not supposed to be this rough …..

.. [link] to the Press Briefing segment ..

.. before , the Press Corpse would be willing to go along to get along with the ObamaCraps …. not any more . They are getting their sea legs back , and joshBoy is the poor sucker who is the ” deer in the headlights …. “

… the Dallas V.A. was V.A. Hell …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 22nd,2014

.. and the average wait times for care at the V.A. around the country were more than twice as long as those in the private sector …

.. what happened to Sgt. Mitchell and his family was outrageous . He should have received decent quality and timely care . He did not , and he died years too early …

.. may God Bless You and Thank You Terry Mitchell for your service , and for your life ! May God Bless You Vicki Mitchell for your efforts to bring your late husband ‘ s story to the notice of us all , including that of this blogger …

… these Dems are Anticipating a Blowout [Elections 2014] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 15th,2014

.. and POTUS and his White House staff ‘ s actions are causing the DemoRats to break ranks , at least in private ..

.. the level of the blowout could well be really bad . It will not just happen on its own . The GOP is going to have to work , and work hard , in order to win the election . Some things may happen by surprise . They always seem to happen that way . But , in the  end , I think that it could be a very good GOP year …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..

.. [link] to the blog news // video …

.. the scandals are causing a great deal of damage to the DemoCraps ‘ own cause . They want to be able to sell the cause of Big Government . They almost always seem to like that . But corruption , incompetence , and lack of care have greatly damaged the cause .

… It Makes You Wonder [#tone deafness]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 7th,2014

.. yes , it appears that it is getting that bad …

.. how can you think of the ObamaCrap Administration ‘ s gross mishandling of the case of Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl . You would expect a White House organization and staff to do their homework fully and completely on the case of the captured soldier before even thinking of making any kind of deal . Considering how many bad actors were involved [5 bad asses] , it really needed to be done . Well , it appears now that it was not , and the reaction shows …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the interview footage ..

.. Colonel David Hunt was on the O ‘ Reilly Factor the other night on the Bergdahl affair . What he had to say on the case was especially damning . Among other things , it was not just 6 people who died in search for Sgt. Pvt. Bergdahl , it was 14 …

.. and the ObamaCrap White House still says that this guy ” served with honour ” and was a ” hero … ”

.. P – U – K – E !! …

… the European Vote was a Warning …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 31st,2014

.. it is a warning that the ruling parties in Europe should take heed to , and quickly …

.. this weekend , voters sent European governments a message . They are not happy with their economic circumstances . They are especially unhappy with the parties in government . Those folks had better take heed , otherwise they risk taking a drubbing at the polls at the next national elections in each nation …

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

.. in nations with a free – market approach , voters were actually happy with what has been happening . Parties in Government [the Baltics , Poland , etc] gained seats . In other nations , voters took out their wrath on the government parties … in the U.k. , the U.K.Independence Party (which wants Britain out of the E.U.) finished first in the voting , with 28% . It was the first time in over 110 years that neither the Conservatives nor Labour finished on top in voting at an election of any kind … take heed , or else …

… This ObamaCrapCare Stunt Should Scare You [Government – generated application]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 30th,2014

.. yea , I thought you would ..

.. you might want to go to the Shark Tank . com with a Google search along for this one …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. this is the results from that post at the Shark Tank . This gentleman was never anywhere near the Health Insurance Marketplace [“healthcare.gov”] , but he got an application , anyway . This guy was wondering , how ?

.. Remember ?!?!

.. the government got the information from the states via their various Departments of Health . Then H.H.S. got these applications started , and sent them out to people who they thought would be caught by this . You are thinking probably , DINKS (double income , no kids) , gays , lesbians , etc …

.. that is the thing . The damn government did this in order to goose the enrollment numbers …

… You Think that The ObamaCrap White could have Done its Homework [#Pay Equity]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 17th,2014

.. because those idiots got caught , and got themselves hammered over the head with the facts …

.. well , C.B.S. lost Sheryl Attkisson , but they may regret bringing Major Garrett aboard as their White House correspondent …

.. Garrett is a well – known conservative , but he is not a ” bomb – thrower , ” like , say , Jerry Seper at the Washington Times . Seper is definitely a ” bomb – thrower , ” but he is a very good one . His reportage is on target , as is Garrett ‘ s . Garrett is a Washington Times alum , and there are a great deal of those folks sprinkled all over D.C. and all around the country . Nice …

.. [h/t — m.Newsbusters]..
.. [link] to the news report / tweet …

.. Garrett did a superb job leveling the White House propaganda , which is something that his bosses at CBS cannot be too thrilled at . They seem to want to toe the ObamaCrap White House line , but this kind of reportage will not allow them too , at least on this subject …

… Do You Really Believe the ObamaCrapCare Numbers ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 8th,2014

.. to be honest , No ! …

.. net of those thrown off of their own health insurance policies , the net gain in insured is only 1 million .

.. from the numbers of folks who have lost their insurance , there are several large states who have not or did not report their numbers … and my home state [Ohio] is one of them . Believe you me , plenty of folks here got tossed off of their health insurance because of the ObamaCrapCare rules … Texas is another , Georgia , Colorado …

.. The interesting thing is exactly how many folks have been enrolled in Medicaid , and how many of those are new enrollees (i.e. , previously uninsured) …

….those numbers alone will cause a great deal of budget trouble for many states … Why ? they cannot afford it … It is one of the chief reasons that so many states took the op – out that the U.S. Supreme Court gave them in N.F.I.B. v Sebelius . They know the Medicaid Monster well , and they do not trust the Federal Government to keep its word …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..

.. [link] to Dr. Krauthammer ‘ s commentary …

.. to be honest , he does not believe in the numbers , either . He thinks that they are a fraud …

.. that campaign style rally at the ObamaCrap White House is a disgrace . How in God  ‘ s name can they do such a thing , especially when they know (conciously) that what they are doing and have done is a disgrace and a fraud . They have turned the healh care and health insurance of millions of people inside out and upside down , and for no reason . They are perpetrating a fraud on  the public to make a political point , which is gross and disgusting . Why ?

.. in the pursuit of a Socialist political agenda , which this country will not stand for !

… Ouch [Garry Kasparov ‘ s Zingers] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 26th,2014

.. this is a real zinger , especially given the source .

.. Garry , you really hit the mark ! Carter is no genius , but he does indeed look like Churchill in comparison to POTUS . Carter had a strong attachment to the pursuit of human rights , at times to his and our nation ‘ s detriment . Iran is the classic example .

.. Shah Reza Pahlavi was no choir boy . He never pretended to be one . He also had no qualms about kicking butt to keep order . His internal security service , the Savak , was ruthlessly efficient in doing its job . However , they look like a bunch of choirboys in comparison to the Mullahs of Qum and the Revolutionary Guards Corps and the Al Quds forces . Iran under the Shah was a strong U.S. ally . Iran under the Mullahs is a U.S. enemy , hot in pursuit of a nuclear weapon …

.. given the law , the letter of the law , and the spirit , this is something that should come from a change in the law that comes from Congress . With the ObamaCraps , no salt . They open that , it opens the whole ball of wax …
