… Obama pushes Netanyahu for Ceasefire [#DebkaFiles]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 6th,2014

.. Bibi should tell Obama to stuff it , and butt out .

.. especially considering the obscenity of a peace ” deal ” that SecState JohnBoy Kerry brought to town this past weekend . It was not just bad . It was worse …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intel snipet …

.. Obama has to be kidding , given the military situation . Isarel is kicking Hamas ‘ ass , big time . Only some political weakness in Jerusalem will save Hamas from getting the serious butt kicking that they richly deserve …

.. It is about time . Bibi has to make it clear , if necessary , in writing , to POTUS and SecState about Hamas ‘ situation . The bad pr from the humanitarian situation is a fact of war , and is entirely of Hamas ‘ doing .

.. Hamas bases its munitions and tunnels in civilian areas , thus putting civilians at risk . No matter how many precautions that Israel may take , there are going to be civilian casualties , like it or not . Hamas is thus the cause of the casualties , not Israel . Hamas provoked this conflict , and now they are going to ” get it …. “

… Scott Brown is in the Lead [#NH US senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 20th,2014

.. amazing …

.. I am not sure what is more amazing …

.. that Scott Brown is now in the lead , 48% to 46% in the NH US Senate race , or …

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

.. or that Jeanne Shaheen is in this much deep trouble . The DemoCraps were really counting on keeping this seat . I honestly was figuring that Brown did not have a great shot at this seat . Guess what ??

.. I was wrong . Brown has been working his tail off . He has seized the initiative , having had town hall debates all over the state . Shaheen ? Zero THs . Not one ….

.. it will be interesting to see these two go at it in a debate . She could avoid him , before all of this . Not now . She is going to have to debate him , several time . She has no choice …

.. this seat is in the balance …

… Scotland could Go Independent …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 11th,2014

.. Scotland votes in a independence referendum on September 18th …

.. it just may well choose to go for independence after nearly 300 years …

.. [h/t — theScotsman.com]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. according to the Scotsman , the ” yes ” side has taken the lead for the first time . I am not surprised . Scots are an independent lot . Once Britain went for devolution of legislative powers to Scotland a number of years ago , one could see this coming …

.. whether it decide to or not is another question …

… Bruce Rauner is Still the Favourite [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 9th,2014

.. even though the race might be tightening …

.. yes , the polls say that Rauner ‘ s lead is down to 8 points . It also now takes into account that there is a libertarian in the race …

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

.. it is rare for libertarians to run in Illinois . Yes , they do have an organized Libertarian party there . Given the circumstances , the DemoCraps would attack and demagogue Bruce Rauner on almost anything …

.. it just reminds the GOP to keep its eye on the ball , and its intent on its campaign message . Adjust the message , if needed . Pound on Quinn for the slimebombs , when needed . He deserves it . But remember what is at stake …

.. Illinois ‘ future , and that of our country …

… In Brasil , think about Maria Silva [#presidential election]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 7th,2014

.. Marina who ? ..

.. she is a long – time sustainable – energy green activist , one who happens to be a businesswoman to boot … something of a surprise . She does not neglect her grass – roots activism , by no means . However , she manages to mix in the practicality of business along with it …

.. in Brasil , it is managing to catch the Brasilian nation ‘ s attention …

.. [h/t — theGuardian.co.uk]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. she came to the fore when the previous Green party candidate died in a plane crash . So , in stepped Maria . To everyone ‘ s surprise , she managed to convince a conservative businessman to run with her as her vice – presidential candidate . Since the conservative party did not have a readily credible candidate this time around , the tories in Brasil have rallied around Marina . Boy , oh Boy , has she taken off …

.. if opinion polls hold , she may well win the Brasilian presidency this year . She would need to beat incumbent Dinah Rousseff in a runoff , but the polls indicate that she would have a fighting chance …

.. stay tuned ….

…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 ! …

… Congratulations to David Perdue ! [#GOP nomination]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 23rd,2014

.. I wanted to wish congratulations and the best of luck to Georgia businessman David Perdue , who has won the runoff for the GOP nomination for the U. S. Senate race in his state …

.. Perdue is well – placed to hold the seat for the GOP . He is already leading in the projected polls , and he is self – funded . Ergo , he can easily outspend the slime – bombs that the unions and the Dems are bound to throw at him … Also , his name helps ….

.. also , surprisingly , like in Mississippi , the GOP boosted its turnout in a runoff race . That kind of enthusiasm will help greatly in the general election , boosting GOP turnout , especially in the early voting period . It will also send a message to the DemoCraps that they are in deep , deep trouble …

.. hopefully , Perdue can establish a significant lead in the polls . It does not have to be big , but the bigger the better . It will discourage the Dems , and will be of help to Governor Nathan Deal , who faces his own somewhat tough re – election race against state Sen Jason Carter [jimmy Carter ‘ s grandson] …

… A Shellacking the DemoCraps so Richly Deserve …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 17th,2014

.. but , we will have to work like the dickens to give it to them …

.. remember , GOTV [get out the vote] was a big problem last time (2012) . The Romney folks plan for GOTV megabombed . It cost us quite a few states [Oh , Fl , Va , Co , Ia , Mi , etc]… possibly the election …

.. [h/t — TAS] …
.. [link] to the column ..

.. the DummyCraps will pull any dirty stunt , fair or foul [likely , foul] , to win . It is their nature . So , prepare the shitshields , we will need them …

.. a good starting point is Karl Rove ‘ s 96 – hour plan . It worked beautifully for 2 presidential elections , especially in 2004 . He is not an idiot . It just needs to be updated and streeeeetcccchhheeeedddd out over 5 weeks [the rough standard for early voting] ….

.. We meet and then beat the Dems in early voting , then our superior turnout effort for the end of the campaign will do its magic . It has worked before . It can and will work again ….

… Campaign Ad Buys will tell You Alot [#Politics 2014] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 6th,2014

.. it always does .

.. campaign committees always reserve lots of air time . A great deal more than they will ever use . But , it will tell you much more than anything that those committees ever intended to .

.. [-] campaign committees carry a great deal of influence — good and great fundraisers are always in high demand . The larger the amounts that they can raise , the better their influence . Especially if they happen to have a tough race …

.. [-] they also have large purse strings — those committees have raised a lot of cash , $$ to be deployed . So , the party bigwigs want it to be spent wisely …

.. [-] where it is spent tells you a lot — these committees have requests for campaign $$ that are far in excess of their cash-on-hand , or what they expect to have . So , they have  to decide who to spend it on , and how much to use on each race . Those judgements will give you a relative guesstimate as to the odds of the campaigns possible success ..

.. [-] thse committees can be springboards for higher office — a highly successful campaign committee run can be extraordinarily useful to one ‘ s political future …

… The Bergdahl Case sets a Terrible Precedent …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 28th,2014

.. Bowe Bergdahl is an Army Sergeant who was captured on the battlefield by a faction of the Taliban in the summer of 2009 . He was captured , fair and square , evidently , by the enemy , and has been held captive ever since then …

.. now , Bergdahl has been freed . The ObamaCrap Administraton has made a political deal , trading 5 high value Talibani detainees at Guantanamo Bay , Cuba in order for Sgt Bergdahl ‘ s release . Why ? Why did they do this ? For What reason(s) ? …

.. I feel and think that this act sets a terrible precedent for US policy . It puts a price on the head of every US soldier , sailor , airman , and Marine . It sends a horrible message to friend and foe alike , that we will negotiate with an adversary in order to free our people . Doing a deal with POWs is one thing , but dealing with someone who is a hostage is something else . It is very , very , wrong …

.. We should have worked harder to locate a POW . Any POW . If and when we locate them , then we go in and get them . We make it clear to the enemy that we will hold them accountable for the safety and security of our people , and will retaliate and penalize those who brutalize and torture our people . Also , we should send a message , that we reserve the right to come after our people . Our people are a free people , and we will pay any price , short of negotiation , to get them back . We reserve the right to come in after them …

… Create Your Own [Anti – Obama bumper sticker] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 26th,2014

.. this is a pickup from a post from a couple of days ago .

.. the DemoCraps [the N.D.C.C.] and the Republicans [the N.R.C.C.] were having another one of their tweet wars …

.. this was the GOP counterpunch …

bumper sticker (like a bystander)

… Thad Cochoran is in Big Trouble …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 21st,2014

.. Cochoran is the senior US Senator from Mississippi . He has served 5 terms in the US Senate , and is seeking his 6th term . Before that , he had served in the US House since 1973 …

.. the Tea Party folks saw Cochoran , who is a bit more moderate than most think , as vulnerable . Going after a sitting US Senator is never easy . For those who go after one in a party primary , one must have a death wish …

.. Well , the Tea Party folks turned out to be right . Conservative businessman and Tea Party favourite Chris McDaniel won the primary , but , unfortunately , just missed winning it outright . McDaniel won about 49.8% of the vote , to Thad Cochoran ‘ s 48.9% . Since no one won an absolute majority , there will be a run-off election for the nomination …

.. Do not fret , GOP . Short of an absolute disaster , the winner [my guess would be McDaniel] will be an enormous favourite in November. Mississippi is about as Red a state as you can get , especially in the South …

… Can Elan Carr pull off the Impossible ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 18th,2014

.. not likely , but maybe ..

.. Carr is running in Ca33 , which is Henry Waxman ‘ s old seat . Waxman is retiring after decades [almost 40 years] in the House . This seat is about as liberal as it gets . Apart from Manhattan ‘ s Upper West Side , there are not many places quite like LA ‘ s west side … Brentwood , BelAir , Beverly Hills , and Malibu , up to Santa Monica . The usual job description for a Congressman is GOPers need not apply …

elan carr (gop CA33)(waxman ' s seat)

.. [h/t — HollywoodReporter]..

.. [link] to the piece …

.. However , that did not faze Carr . Carr is now a local small businessman , after a career as a gang – related prosecutor with the Los Angeles County District Attorney ‘ s Office . He also was a military reservist , and saw duty in the Iraq war ….

.. For any Republican to have a real chance , it helps to be Jewish . Carr is , and is Conservative Jewish . That helps , because an Orthodox Jew would be dead meat in this district . Reform Judaism , which is likely strong in this district , may well be willing to support a Conservative jew , especially a businessman and a war veteran ..

.. the odds are not good , but this race bears watching . I do intend to …

.. [update] — Carr is trailing in the polls , but not by much …. by about 6 points . It will be interesting to see how much interest , especially from the media , that this race gets …

.. with early voting , this one could be close . Bob Turner pulled it off in NYC (in Queens) in 2010 against Anthony Weiner , when Weiner quit all of a sudden …

.. this one bears watching …

… These Folks are That Dense [#bergdahl] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 7th,2014

.. geez ..

.. the military has an open file on the guy .

.. not only that , they have an even more secret intelligence file on the guy …

.. [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 !! …
