… Ruth Bader Ginsberg may be a Radical [#US Supreme Court]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 9th,2016

.. but she is not stupid .

.. she has seen how the confirmation process has evolved over the years . Especially since her own , and those of her colleagues …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news piece …

.. after what ol’ Dingy Harry Reid has done with the nuclear option , it will be extraordinarily difficult for any confirmation for any position in the remaining days of the Obama Administration . You cannot unring the bell . It is that simple …

.. If His Lordship thinks that he can get a raging liberal past the US Senate , no matter who controls it , forget it . Even if the Dems control it , it will put enormous pressure on the moderates and those in Red States to vote against the nominee . You can bet on virtually united GOP opposition …

.. Biden has to explain to Obama , you cannot and will not get certain nominees past the Senate . The U.S. Senate is not the Illinois Senate . The GOP nationally is not the GOP in Illinois …

… If Loretta Lynch has lost John McCain [#AG nomination]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 28th,2015

.. then the effort to confirm her is indeed in deep trouble .

.. the GOP now controls the US Senate . The DemoCraps do not . The DummyCraps can stammer , huff , puff , and try to blow a house down all that they want , but as long as the majority holds firm , Lynch ‘ s nomination will not receive a vote . At the very least , not anytime soon ..

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

.. right now , the nomination is in real trouble . US Sen John McCain [R-Az] has come out openly against her nomination . Much more so is why he did . He has stated specifically that her position on POTUS ‘ so – called Executive Action on Immigration [which came out during questioning for her confirmation hearings] is what made him come out so openly against her …

.. She will not get a vote anytime soon . A good number of committee chairmen are against her . I suspect most of the Senate leadership has decided to vote her nomination down . But the Majority Leader ? That I am not sure of , yet . if he decides to oppose her , then her nomination is effectively dead , no matter how much His Lordship and the Senate DemoCraps protest …

… Do Not Confirm Loretta Lynch [#US AG]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 27th,2015

.. she is not qualified for the job .

.. there are waaay too many questions about her conduct on the job as US Atty in the Eastern District of New York [Brooklyn] . She has conduct far too many questionable actions as the people ‘ s atty for her to be able to be confirmed as AG .

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. there is also a much bigger question . She was questioned by members of the US Senate during her so – called confirmation hearings . Before the first of the year [while the DemoCraps controlled the Senate] , Dingy Harry Reid & Co could have easily pushed her nomination through . It would have been a honey of a battle , but it could have been done . However , Dingy Harry & Co demurred from the fight . I am not sure as to why …

.. The capstone on her lack of qualification for the office is an answer to a question during her confirmation hearings . Senator Jeff Sessions [R-Al] posed to her a question about His Lordship ‘ s alleged ” Executive Action ” on immigration . Lynch could have dodged the question , or said that she did not support the action . However , she did not . She said that what POTUS had done is both legal and constitutional .

.. For a prospective AG to do that on an issue that is clearly both illegal and unconstitutional makes her patently unqualified to be Attorney General of the United States . There are also other far more qualified candidates …

… What is Deval Patrick up To ?!?! [#Massachusetts Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 25th,2014

.. good question ?? …

.. his moves [featherbedding supporters & issuing pardons] are not the wisest of moves . At least for a political campaign . Even in the People ‘ s Republic of Taxachusetts …

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

.. I think that he has something else in mind : Attorney General of the United States …

.. remember , Patrick was Assistant AG for Civil Rights under Wilhelm der Fibmeister . It took a recess appointment and one hell of a political fight to finally get him confirmed as that job … so you can see what he has done since then ….

.. given the current circumstances [55 Dem // 45 GOP] in the Senate , I think that good ol ‘ Dingy Harry Reid and Company can get him [or someone else] confirmed by the Senate during the Lame Duck session . Especially if the DemoCraps get blown out [as expected] in the Midterm elections …

.. it will be the DemoCraps last chance to get anyone remotely controversial confirmed by the Senate . However , the GOP can make the Dems sweat , espc. if the Defeated Caucus is the possible margin of confirmation . Boy , would that be fun to watch …

… 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 …

… Disgusting and Outrageous …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 15th,2014

.. the receipt of a rosary is a special gift .

.. I know . I was recently confirmed as a Roman Catholic , and a special friend of mine gave me my first gift as a Catholic … a Rosary …

.. It was not any ordinary Rosary , mind you …

.. It was one that was purchased on a overseas trip of hers . She got  it when she went to the Shrine at Our Lady of Lourdes …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. so , it makes a Rosary and its presentation special .

.. So , POTUS gave a Rosary that was given to him … by Pope Francis I . A Rosary that was blessed by the Holy Father , Wow ! …

.. who did he give it to ? Congresswitch Nancy Pelosi . Yeech …

.. she is most definitely not in good standing with the church . Especially being a member in  Bad Standing of the Forces of Death …

… Interesting Take [from the Weekly Standard]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 21st,2014

.. and excellent reporting by TWS reporter Jeryl Bier .

.. HHS Secretary Sebelius was testifying in front of the House Ways & Means Committee (tax policy) on her agency ‘ s budget . Bier ‘ s reporting takes a fair understanding of public policy as well as politics ….

.. [h/t — theWeeklyStandard]..

.. [link] to the article ..

.. the basic gist is that Sebelius lied …

.. the enrollment data reports that have been coming out from H.H.S. are a crock of [bleep] . They do know exactly how many people (roughly) have paid for their enrollments in ObamaCrapCare . The insurers are not supposed to confirm to the enrollee until they have a complete enrollment pack from the government AND either payment from the insured (they know this option) or billing the prospective insured (they know this option , too) …

.. in other words , they know :

[-] how many have paid ,

[-] how many have canceled ,

[-] how many have been billed , and / or

[-] how many have been canceled due to lack of payment . The insurer would know this , and report it back to the government …
