… The F.C.C. has not Gotten the Message [#internet regulation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 1st,2016

.. you would think that the Federal Communications Commission [the F.C.C.] would have gotten the message , by now .

.. Congress has said no to ” Net neutraility . ” Twice . Also , the federal appeals courts [the D.C. Circuit Court , to be specific] has also SAID ” no ” to ” Net Neutrality . ” Twice more …

.. well , I guess that it is time for Round 3 …

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

.. ISPs and other companies will not stand for this . There will be a huge bi – partisan majority in Congress to overrule the F.C.C. . Not only that , they will act to amend federal law to specifically state that the Internet is NOT a public utility , and that ” Net Neutrality ” is not the will of Congress …

.. either this bill or the Iran Sanctions bill will be the first one in which His Lordship ‘ s veto is overridden …

… Now the Senate takes up the Cause [#IRSGate investigation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 30th,2015

.. I wish them luck , guys ..

.. considering how co – operative that the ObamaCrap White House has been with the House of Representatives , good luck . Has there been communication between the ObamaCraps and the IRS , though ?? …

.. [link] to the blog opinion …

.. undoubtedly , yes .

.. the big problem is getting the ObamaCraps to admit it . A good thing to have is to have a hook , a trump card , a wedge to get in under the White House to force their hand . That would be nice … Especially given the updated F.O.I.A. lawsuit precedents , that route would be a powerful wedge …

.. calling Judicial Watch ! …

… 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 …

.. Bill O ‘ Reilly was merciless in hammering the ObamaCraps over this . The handling of the Bergdahl affair / prisoner swap was waaaay beyong incompetent ….

… Now He is Out [#JayBoy Carney]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 4th,2014

.. well , he finally gave up the ghost . Evidently , this one has been coming (under the radar) for some time …

.. considering his grave loss of credibility , he needed to go . JayBoy had lost his effectiveness and usefulness to the administration . Staying any longer would have made no sense ..

.. at least now , his deputy (and successor) Josh Earnest can make a fresh start . Earnest has almost the perfect name for the job , that is for sure . He almost has the ideal temperament , too . JoshBoy is a lot less arrogant than Carney is , by far . JayBoy has always been an arrogant ass when in the media , and as Press Secretary , he has gotten a great deal worse . At least now , he can hit the meat and potatoes circuit and make the bucks …

.. considering what may be coming down the road , JoshBoy Earnest is going to need all of the help that he can get …

… Steven A. Smith has Guts …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 31st,2014

.. and , he stands by what he says , no matter what the reaction …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. in this instance , he got plenty of it . He caught living hell for what he said …

.. businessman , venture investor , and Dallas Mavs owner Mark Cuban stirred up a pretty fair bit of a hornet ‘ s nest . Cuban said that if he encountered a black man with a hoodie , or a white man with lots of tattoos , he would cross the street in order to avoid the person in question . Steven A. stood up for Cuban and endorsed his view , stating that he would do the same thing …

.. Cuban stirred up a hornet ‘ s nest , but Steven A. Smith caused quite an uproar , especially in the black community . He was called a racist , a traitor , and , most of all , an ” Uncle Tom . ” …

Uncovering the “big elephant in the room,” Smith suggests that people are afraid to talk about the prejudices that all are guilty of because “white folks are scared they are going to be labeled racist,” and “black folks are scared they are going to be labeled sell outs.”

Smith affirms that he is not turning a blind-eye to the obvious racism that still exists in the country. Yet he does not think that every issue affecting the black community is race related. He said, “Sometimes it is about how you represent yourself — it is about how you present yourself.”

When I alluded to walking around with your pants hanging below your behind, that’s trifling. That’s just trifling and it’s counter productive. When I talked about how you sitting there and the first words out of your mouth are, y’know what I’m sayin’, y’know what I mean — no the hell we don’t!

When I talk about not having a command of the English language and still you want a job, and you want to have a career, but you don’t want to get your education — you don’t want to go out there and pound that pavement. Everything is about the sprint; it’s not about the marathon. It’s not about you putting forth the necessary effort and due diligence over the long haul to get the things that you need. That’s a reality in our community.

That reality, Smith says, is by acting in that way, some in the black community are “feeding” the stereotypes and thus keeping themselves from moving forward in life.

Smith ended by talking about the American dream. He said the American dream is not the rap artist or NBA star that went from nothing to hundreds of millions of dollars — that he calls “a fantasy.” But he uses his own story to tout what it really takes to achieve the American dream:

… A New One for POTUS [#the First Liar]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 18th,2014

.. well , His Lordship struck again ..

.. he cannot help himself …

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

.. well , after being a snide jackass in front of a nationwide TV audience , POTUS made a phone call to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor .. Guess what the subject of the phone call was ?? …

.. you would think that it would be to wish him a happy Passover … Cantor , who is Jewish , certainly would have liked that , but nooooooo…

.. it was about immigration . Worse , the First Wuss was snide and domineering , especially after the way that he had behaved on TV in his press conference … This was Cantor ‘ s reply , more or less …

Today, President Obama called me to discuss his desire for comprehensive immigration reform. The President called me hours after he issued a partisan statement which attacked me and my fellow House Republicans and which indicated no sincere desire to work together. After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done. You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in a serious dialogue. I told the President the same thing I told him the last time we spoke. House Republicans do not support Senate Democrat’s immigration bill and amnesty efforts, and it will not be considered in the House. I also reiterated to the President there are other issues where we can find common ground, build trust and get America working again. Hope the President can stop his partisan messaging, and begin to seriously work with Congress to address the issues facing working middle class Americans that are struggling to make ends meet in this economy.”

… Remember Uncle ” Hot Mike ” [Michelle Obama] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 25th,2014

.. did not anyone tell Michelle Obama that she was going to be on the newly revised Tonight Show , starring Jimmy Fallon ?? ..

.. obviously not , because now the reaction is coming , and it is not pretty . She should remember some old maxims (and some  new ones) …

… [-] Connect Mouth  to Brain , before putting Mouth into Gear , or putting Finger to Send Button … , and

… [-] Remember when that you are in public , any microphone is live [ ” hot ” ] , and

…  [-] in the Internet age , any boo – boo is going to go viral , and fast . It does not take a rocket scientist to upload video footage to a web page or a facebook page …

… What a Dumb – Bell [Pelosi] ? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,February 3rd,2014

.. I knew that Nancy Pelosi could be clueless about the private sector and about business , but this much ..

.. my God , boy oh boy , is she ever an idiot ! How could she be this stupid about what has been going on with ObamaCrapCare and the website , much less the problems with both ? She needs a few years back in remedial college education on basic business , finance , and economics ..

.. the other night Congresswitch Pelosi appeared on Comedy Central ‘ s  Jon Stewart show with Jon Stewart . Stewart evidently caught her both unprepared and by surprise … boy , oh boy , did he ever …

… More of the ” Blame Bush ” screed …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 29th,2014

.. can’t the ObamaCraps learn something new ?

.. White House Propaganda Minister Dan Pfeiffer was on ” Fox News Sunday ” this past Sunday , and , to say the least , he did not do all that well . He tried the usual anti – Bush apropos , and FoxNews ‘ Chris Wallace was primed and ready for his schtick . Wallace countered , and DannyBoy Pfeiffer did not last all that long ..

… It would be NIce …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 29th,2014

.. if POTUS would learn the meaning of the word , ” leadership . ”

.. Regrettably , he does not have a clue about it . If he did , he would understand that he needs to take the lead on events , instead of acting in reaction to events . If he did , he would better understand the views of others , and not to denigrate them as readily as he does . If he did , well ….

.. Saturday night , while also covering a breaking news story [the Columbia ,MD mall shooting] , Judge Jeanine Pirro let His Lordship have it but good . She gave him a good [bleep] – ripping over the issue …

… Watch DannyBoy Make a Fool of Himself …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 28th,2014

.. DannyBoy is , of course , Deputy Propaganda Minister [White House Communications Director] Dan Pfeiffer . He must wonder why he is not welcome that often on the Sunday shows ..

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]

.. when he makes an ass of himself like [this] , then you see why …

.. This is only a segment of his apperantace on ” Fox News Sunday . ” Chris Wallace is a top-of-the-line professional . He knows his craft , and knows how to elicit a hard response from a reluctant witness [guest] . He knows how to knock them off their game , and get them off of their script , which these days is enough to make Ministry Spin Doctors nervous , no matter who is the victim …
