… 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 …

… 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 ….

… Jan Brewer really Gets It [#imperial POTUS]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 13th,2014

.. she really does get it .

.. so , Crane v. Napolitano will live on , but in a different cloak .

.. her case is already at the 9th Circuit . It will not be finished there by the time that she leaves office in January . God willing , her successor will be a Republican , and one who understands the fight …

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

.. D.A.C.A. was created by imperial fiat . Now , we as a country are reaping the whirlwind of the results . POTUS really thinks that he is going to get $$ without restrictions ?? No way …

… Now , the Granite State may be in Play [#NH] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 28th,2014

.. or , it just might be , according to this post …

.. [h/t — hotair.com]..
.. [link] to the poll results …

.. Scott Brown is now right on Jeanne Shaheen ‘ s heels . Worse for Shaheen , she is now under 50% , and she is thisclose to Brown …

.. this is a big surprise . Given previous poll results , I though that Shaheen was likely going to hold off Brown in this race . Maybe not …

.. I would think that WMUR [a big TV station in New Hampshire] would have double – checked the results on this one . I suspect that the Manchester Union – Leader and other media are going to run follow – up polls to see if this is an outlier …. or a trend …

.. the link has some pretty entertaining and hard – hitting ads that have been up in Boston [broadcasting into NH] and in the Granite State itself …. also , Brown has been barnstorming the state , holding town halls all over the place . Shaheen ? Not one …

.. also , Brown has been hammering away on immigration . If these polling results are confirmed , it will get a lot of people ‘ s attention . Especially in the Obama White House . His possible [[read : likely] Executive Amnesty may not be all that popular , especially with the flood of border kids this year , and possibly next …

…Be Careful What You Wish For [#Impeachment]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 4th,2014

.. you just might get it ..

.. right now , the DemoCraps are conducting a fundraising marathon – to – beat – all over the ” I ” word …. not a big shock …

.. amazingly enough , even senior White House aides [including DannyBoy Pfeiffer] and FLOTUS herself are getting in on the act …

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

.. well , after the first of the year , once the GOP takes over Congress , do not be surprised if it actually comes to pass , given Obama ‘ s actions …

.. the House lawsuit may well do some good . It will , however , take a great deal of time . Crane v Napolitano had promise , but it has died , for now , unless it revives on appeal ….

.. the best case , inadvertantely , is the Arizona case over illegals and driver licenses . Az Gov Jan Brewer has taken this on as a crusade , and her successor [likely a Republican] hopefully will follow . This case will be a big issue in the Az Governor ‘ s election , and that will force the issue . This one , ideally could use a conflict with another circuit , but the Supremes may well take it on themselves …

.. if Obama pulls the stunt that I expect on illegals [exec action on legalization] , I am sure that he will pull it . It is just a question of whether of when he does it ….

.. When he does , the reaction is going to be a honey . It might goose Dem turnout a little , but it will enrage Republicans and Independents . I would bet that even a fair number of Dems will be pissed off by the manuveur . Then calls for the ” I ” word will explode , I will bet …

.. if he does , my voice will be one of them ! …
