… Now Ohio has a Role Model to Follow [#Voter ID law]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 16th,2016

.. at least , now , Wisconsin has some finality in its Voter I.D. case .

.. the radical left would not give up . They appealed the adverse decision of the 7th Circuit to the U.S. Supreme Court . They were expecting [at the least] that they would get a hearing in front of the Supremes . To get that , that would require the votes of 4 justices . Well , they did not get it …

.. here is the photo of the order dismissing the radical ‘ s cert petition to the Supreme Court ….

Ws Voter ID case (USsc order dismissed)

.. [h/t — LegalInsurrection.com]..
.. [link] to the blog decision in the case ..

.. what it means is that Wisconsin is finally free [at last] to fully implement its long – contentious Voter I.D. law . It was passed several years ago , but has been tied up in court challenges ever since ..

.. many , of not most , of us use photo I.D. all the time in our daily lives . We use them many times a day . So most folks already have not just one form of photo I.D. . Many have several , including either a driver license , a state i.d. , and / or a US Passport . Those that do not can be provided with a free photo i.d. [for voting purposes] , provided that they have the necessary prep documents …

… Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a Radical Activist [#Supreme Court Justice]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 7th,2015

.. How this ultraliberal witch was confirmed was beyond me …

.. She was nominated and confirmed by Bill Clinton [and the USSenate] in the early 1990s . She was , at the time , a lead A.C.L.U. legal counsel . So , there you are …

.. you look at her rulings down through the years , and you wonder ? Why did the GOP vote for her confirmation ? She should have been blocked . She has no business being a Supreme Court justice …

.. [h/t — HuffingtonPost.com]..
.. [link] to the opinion piece …

.. hopefully , God Willing , she will be replaced by a GOP president . Preferrably , by a conservative one . The more conservative , the better … It would be a pleasure to watch the liberal DemoCRaps have a hissyfit over the confirmation of her successor . It would be poetic justice , especially if she had died in office …

.. hopefully , a strong and stout young conservative will begin to restore sanity and reason to the bench …

— update — if Ginsberg [given her age and health] decides to step down , it will make for one hellish confirmation battle . POTUS will want to make his imprint on the Supremes , no matter what party controls the Senate . The problem is if POTUS nominates someone that is not confirmable , even by the DemoCraps . Even they may not be able to tolerate a radical activist …

.. if she does it in 2016 , then there will be no confirmation battle at all . The GOP will simply not confirm anyone , even for an Associate Justice slot on the Supreme Court . If , as I expect , the GOP sweeps through to victory in 2016 , then they get to appoint the replacement …

… A Sad Commentary on the Economy [#ObamaCrap EPA regs]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 30th,2014

.. yea , it is very sad .

.. but , it is to the point .

branco cartoon (OC coal killer)

.. [h/t — Comicallyincorrect]..
.. [link] to the cartoon..

.. I would have had it as a nuclear weapon . A stick of dynamite is something the coal industry can survive . Also , the juxtapose would be far more hilarious …

.. [update] — with the Supreme Court ruling in UARG v EPA , at least the EPA ‘ s sails have been trimmed a pretty fair bit . More than they realize . The Court liberals tend to grossly underestimate how gifted an opinion writer Antonin Scalia really is . This opinion was a real dandy …

… the Dems must be Really Scared [Bleep]less …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 29th,2014

.. first , they go apopletic over 538.com ‘ s Nate Silver ‘ s updated prediction over the potential United States Senate races . This is especially rich , given that , like Charlie Cook and Stu Rothenberg , Silver is well known for having a pro DemoCrap tilt . A little bit of poetic justice …

.. Now , they are trying to give Supreme Court Associate Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Steven Breyer the ” bums rush ” off of the Court . The loonie lefties want to do this , because they are afraid of who might be able to replace them , especially if the replacements come after the new year . Getting a strong liberal nominee from POTUS past a GOP – controlled US Senate may well be well – nigh impossible .

.. Also , they are deathly afraid of what might come in 2016 . HRC is no certain cinch to run . Even if she does , she will have the Obama record millstone and the Obama economy millstones draped arond her neck . Things will be even worse if the economy swoons into a recession . If HRC does not run , then who does ? Even so , then who would be the nominee ? Ditto for the GOP …
