… The Animas River Spill is going to Continue [#downriver]..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 1st,2015

.. and , boy , is the cost from this stinker going to be a doozy ..

.. guess who is going to get the bill for this blunder ? No , not the old mine owner . They did exactly what they were supposed to do , and then some , They built a sound tailings pond to hold the dirty holdings and contaminated water from the mine . They also sealed it off from the surrounding environment . They were not required to , but they did ..

.. So , who does get the bill ? You got it , the U.S. Taxpayer . This blunder was all on the E.P.A. . Those idiots , and their contractor , went to check on the damn to the tailings pont . So , what did those dummies do ?? They breached it , and released the ENTIRE contents of the pond ..

.. Nice going , Dummies ! The cost of this megastinker is going to make the fallout from past disasters like Love Canal look like a walk in the part . The effect is going to be looonnnng … like all the way to the Colorado River , to L.A. , and thus dragging in Mexico . Boy , are the Mexicans gonna be pissed about it …

… Nice Going , DummyCrats [#Navajo Nation][#Animas River spill][#E.P.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 27th,2015

.. the political tone – deafness of the Democrats on this one is incredible , and growing . It is also incredibly political stupid — and dangerous …

.. the Navajos are one of the largest Indian tribes [in terms of land area] in the nation . Their holdings cover parts of 4 states : Colorado [very little] , Utah [bigger] , New Mexico [much bigger still] , and , biggest of all , Arizona [huge] …

.. they obviously have several million folks who can claim Navajo ancestry . so the Navajos do give a flying fiddlers fig about what goes on back home on their ancestral lands . This environmental spill [courtesy of the ObamaCrap E.P.A. colossal blunder] effects them greatly .

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. ergo , the political effect could be huge . Utah is as deep red as it gets , so that one would not be particularly be changed by this . But , you add in Nevada , where a fair number of Navajos have migrated ? Yeow , that one is up for grabs . Colorado ? The number of Navajos is small , but the rest of the state has to be watching what the Obamacraps , the E.P.A. , and the DummyCraps in general are doing …

.. then comes New mexico . The Navajo prescence there is very strong , and spreads off of their lands . It could tip other tribes also [not limited to the Hopi] , and thus New Mexico politics …

.. then comes Arizona . The Navajo prescence in Arizona is enormous , including surrounding the Hopi lands . It would not just tip Az politics in general . Right Now , Arizona is roughly ” pink , ” or leaning GOP . You piss off enough of the Indians and you can [for the Dems] kiss off Az for a generation …

… Funny Election Night [Colorado]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 30th,2014

.. well , you can call it that ..

.. in Colorado , it is a surprise ..

.. is it Tancredo ? Nope . Secretary of State Gessler ? Nope .

.. so , who ?

.. businessman and Townhall.com / Finance columnist Bob Beauprez . Beauprez is a former 3 term congressman in Colorado , so he is not unknown . He has also run statewide before [for the US Senate] , so his name is known statewide , as well .

.. I think that Beauprez has a much better than you think chance of unseating DemoCrap incumbent John Hickenweenie . Hickee is no bright light bulb , so Beauprez should be able to beat up on him but good ..

.. even better , he will be a big assist to Congresscritter Cory Gardiner , who is running for US Senate against Tom Udall ….

.. good luck to them both …

… I stand with Masterpiece Cakeshop …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 15th,2014

.. and its owner , Jack Phillips ..

.. Jack Phillips is an evangelical Christian . He founded his business in Lakewood , Colorado (a suburb of Denver) in the summer of 1993 . One would think that a small businessman , one who does cakes and other bakery products would not cause a big ruckus . One would be wrong ..

.. As an evangelical Christian , Jack Phillips will not do any events for same – sex ceremonies . He has done business with many same – sex couples for other events . He just will not do so for so – called ” same – sex weddings ” and other ceremonies of the like , because of his religious beliefs . As a result , a ” couple ” sued Phillips in the courts in 2012 …

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

.. The Colorado ” Civil Rights ” Commision upheld the act of an administrative law judge , finding Phillips and his business [Masterpiece Cakeshop] , guilty of discrimination in failing to serve the ” couple . ” It also ordered other ” remedial ” acts for Phillips to undertake . Why ?

.. The Commission has forgotten that Phillips has constitutional rights under the First Amendment , and that those apply to the states , courtesy of the 14th Amendment . Ergo , his constitutional rights to freedom of religion outweigh those created by statute by the State of Colorado . Colorado and other similarly activist states should remember that when they try to pull a stunt such as this …

… It Tells You a Lot [John Elway] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 5th,2014

.. John Elway is a NFL Hall – of – Famer , a great quarterback , and for me (as a Cleveland Browns fan) a colossal pain – in – the – rearend . But , he still is one of the great clutch performers in the history of the NFL .

.. It has always been rumored that Big John is a Republican . It is (was) not a state secret . Elway has been evidently recruited by the GOP in Colorado for years . Never say never …

.. Now , he confirms it . Big John is a Republican . Here is why …[link] ..

.. here is a sample of why he is a Republican  …

“Well, those are what my beliefs are. I believe you know as a country that we are given the opportunity to succeed or not succeed. And, I think for us to be able to, I don’t believe in safety nets, obviously we have to have some kind of safety nets, but I think… My philosophy is when you’re given the opportunity you take advantage of that and I think that’s when you get the best out of people.”

… Earth to States [Religious Liberty] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 6th,2013

.. people ‘ s First Amendment rights to religious liberty outweight those of the creation of a ” Human Rights Commission . “

.. people do not forfeit their 1st Amendment rights when , for example , they go into business . They have a right to choose to uphold their religious principles when they choose not to serve so – called ” gay ” couples . The case that I am following is that of Masterpiece Cakeshop , a business in (I think) Boulder , Colorado . The Colorado state commision governing this case is threatening to impose crippling fines on Jack Phillips (the owner) if he continues to refuse to serve so – called ” same – sex ” couples .

.. These ” gay ” couples can get their products and services elsewhere , in particular , florists and cakeshops who do not wish to associate themselves with so – called ” gay ” weddings . These ” weddings ” are nothing of the kind , and judicial doctrine does not allow a ” human rights ” code to impose a duty to serve on these folks .

.. These folks do not believe in so – called ” gay ” marriages , or anything of the sort . They believe that marriage is the holy covenant , the act of coupling in between one man and one woman . In their case , no state ” human rights commission  ” can redefine those rights , or deny one ‘ s Constitutional rights .

.. The ” human rights ordinance ” (cover for non – discrimination against gays and lesbians , as well as ” same – sex ” couples) does not , repeat , not outweigh the constitutional rights of others .

.. Please try to remember that …

… A Unique Ballot Battle in Colorado …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 6th,2013

.. and it is one not to be poo – pooed …

.. A number of northern Colorado counties are extremely unhappy with the direction of the state and its government . Most state secession movements are a joke . Not this one . The voters of Colorado have plenty of issues to be pissed off at . Having a lunatic leftie twit as a Governor is one way to get everyone mad . Especially provoking anger are votes to attempt to eviscerate the Taxpayer Bill of Rights , and the gun control bill . Coloradans have voted for change , but I highly doubt that this is the change that they have had in mind .

.. It seems that quite a few citizens of Colorado are going to have something to do about their situation . No , it is not a joke . The dems that are currently in power in Denver just might be stupid enough to wave them bye – bye . First up is having a live secession movement . There is enough anger in northern Colorado that the state just might have one in live existence . The next step is to gather support . It could even come from counties in surrounding states , such as Wyoming , Nebraska , and Kansas . Once that occurs , then the Dems in Denver have a serious problem . If they sign off on the issue (a big if) , then it comes to D.C. . Boy , would that become a political football .

.. to create a new state (North Colorado) out of parts of the current state , and even from parts of surrounding states (possibly) , you need the permission of the existing state government . Normally , that would not be possible . When West Virginia was created (and admitted) in 1864 , the hoop that was skipped was that Virginia was a state in rebellion . As lunatic as Denver is these days , no one is suggesting that . But , the Dems in Denver just might sign off on it , just to be rid of the rebels . They also might not . There is good reason why .

.. California . California is so damn big , a secession movement just might spring up there , too . Also , like Colorado , California has the initiative and petition method . The rebels could end up using that method to circumvent the legislature in Sacramento . Also , the legislature , as long as the rebel counties take on their fair share of the debt , just might be nuts enough to sign off on it . If north Colorado succeeds , California just might be next .

.. also , Canada is watching . Le Quebecois are getting reared up to start their nationalist movement all over again . It could well be stronger than the first time . If it were to succeed , then Canada is finished . The rest of Canada hates Ontario almost as much as they hate Quebec , and if they are effectively cut off from each other (the Maritmes from the West , and the West from the rest) , well …..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 11th,2013

.. Colorado State Senate President John Morse and one of his chief henchwomen , State Senator Angela Giron , were recalled tonight from office .

.. Even better , they were both replaced , I believe , with Republicans . Not sure on who yet . More on that later . Not sure on the partisan flip in the Colorado Senate , yet , but it should help , at least …

.. update — It changes the partisan layout to 18 to 17 , from 20 to 15 . One more seat changes hands (hopefully by recall , or in a by – election) , and the GOP grabs the Colorado Senate …

… I wanted to Revisit This [Religious Freedom in Business] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 5th,2013

.. this is in regards to the small businesses , one in Colorado , and one in Oregon , who are currently under fire for exercising their religious beliefs .

.. I wanted to bring in this quote from the one article …
“Religious freedom is a fundamental right in America and it’s something that we champion at the ACLU,” said Mark Silverstein, the

English: The Bill of Rights, the first ten ame...

English: The Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution Česky: Originál Listiny práv, prvních deseti dodatků k Ústavě Spojených států amerických Deutsch: Die Bill of Rights genannten ersten zehn Zusatzartikel zur US-amerikanischen Verfassung, die den Bürgern bestimmte Grundrechte garantieren Español: La Carta de Derechos de los Estados Unidos, el término por el que se conocen las diez primeras enmiendas de la Constitución de los Estados Unidos de América (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

legal director of the group in Colorado, which filed the complaint last year on behalf of Mullins and Craig. “We are all entitled to our religious beliefs and we fight for that. But someone’s personal religious beliefs don’t justify breaking the law by discriminating against others in the public sphere.”

.. Someone should remind the AntiChrist Lunatics Union that our religious beliefs are religious liberties , enshrined in the U.S. Constitution . Also , in the Bill of Rights , in the 1st Amendment , as regards the freedom of religion and religious practice . Exercising those religious beliefs in public is not discrimination , and does not discriminate against others . People are freely exercising their religious beliefs , and that does not stop in  the business sphere .

.. Those idiots keep on enacting those so – called “human rights” laws , and imposing their socialist acts on us all . They should remember , those laws are only laws , and they are not constitutional amendments . The law is subservient to the constitution , and those “so – called sexual orientation” laws are unconstitutional .

… In Defense of the 1st Amendment …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 13th,2013

… In Defense of the 1st Amendment

.. Judith Miller, then a reporter for The New York Times, became the heroine of a cause celebre when federal prosecutors demanded she testify to a grand jury investigating a White House leak divulging that Valerie Plame was an undercover operative of the CIA. The government demanded she reveal her confidential sources for stories she wrote about the leak. Ms. Miller refused , and she was found in contempt of court and jailed for 85 days. She became a household name , and the poster child for freedom of the press.

.. Not as many people have heard the name Jana Winter . She , too  , is a reporter who faces jail time for refusing to divulge her sources .

English: Judith Miiler, frequently a panelist ...

English: Judith Miiler, frequently a panelist on Fox News Watch (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The mainstream media does not seem to care very much. She is employed by the Fox News Channel , regarded as vile by the right-thinking people on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

.. In an affidavit filed with the court, Ms. Winter said, “In all of the time that I have worked as a journalist, I have always maintained my commitments to sources to keep the identities of confidential sources safe from disclosure. As a result, I enjoy an excellent reputation as an investigative journalist among my peers, and, as importantly, among the sources upon whom I rely to obtain information for my reporting. If this reputation were tarnished, it would severely compromise my ability to gather news, and would assuredly result in critical reports on public issues never seeing the light of the day.”

.. The case has serious implications for both the First Amendment, and for states, such as Colorado , that have enacted “shield laws” to protect reporters from revealing their sources. Colorado ‘ s law requires a court to determine whether the information obtained by a reporter is “directly relevant to a substantial issue in the proceedings.” In this case , it is clear that it does not . While Ms. Winter’s reporting demonstrated that the suspect had a desire to commit violent acts, it has no bearing on whether Mr. Holmes committed them.

.. If Ms. Winter is compelled to reveal her sources , it will have a chilling effect on reporters’ ability to gather and deliver news . The New York Times and other mainstream outlets have given scant attention or support for Ms . Winter ‘ s defense of the First Amendment. The Constitution, and Ms. Winter, deserve better.
