… How Low has Modern Liberalism Sank to ?!?! [#Sharpton][#POTUS]….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 5th,2015

.. well , it has sank pretty low …

.. first , Al Sharpton is no ” Reverend . ” He is a mail – order ” reverend , ” if that . At least with the Reverend Jesse Jackson [Sr] , he went to divinity school and earned his degree . Jackson is no choirboy , and many of his tactics are loathsome and disgusting . But he is a choirboy , in comparison to Sharpton …

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

.. to quote from Peter Wehner …

“There’s a trust factor with The Rev from the Oval Office on down,” a White House official familiar with their dealings told reporter Glenn Thrush. “He gets it, and he’s got credibility in the community that nobody else has got. There’s really no one else out there who does what he does.”

That last statement is true; there isn’t anyone out there who does what Sharpton does quite the way he does it.

Al Sharpton is a person who lives for the purpose of stoking racial hatreds. He was convicted of defaming a New York prosecutor, Steven A. Pagones, in the notorious Tawana Brawley affair, in which Brawley falsely accused Pagones of raping her. During the 1991 Crown Heights riots in Brooklyn, Sharpton fueled black rage after a Hasidic Jewish driver accidentally killed a seven-year-old black child with his car. (A young talmudic scholar, Yankel Rosenbaum, was stabbed to death by a mob shouting “Kill the Jew.”) Sharpton has made numerous anti-Semitic comments. He’s characterized black people who disagreed with him as “yellow niggers” and called white people “crackers.” He constantly casts the police as racists when there’s no evidence to support the charge. And on top of that he’s a tax cheat, having been convicted of tax evasion and, according to the New York Times, with more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses.

Sharpton, then, is a notorious and demagogic figure. He’s anti-cop. He’s anti-Semitic. And he’s an enemy of racial reconciliation, having done incalculable damage to race relations in America. That such a loathsome individual would be allowed into the White House is itself stunning; and the fact that he’s Barack Obama’s “go-to man on race” is shameful and discrediting. These are the depths to which modern liberalism has descended.


… how low , indeed …

… Its now Crane v Johnson [#an update]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 4th,2014

.. boy , did I goof ..

.. Crane v Napolitano ” died ” in court , due to a technicality …

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

.. the government was lucky . They were going to lose , and lose big . Somehow , I think that this case will live again . Why ?

.. you look at the crisis at the border , and that the Border Patrol is in many cases spending more of its time babysitting and changing diapers than doing its regular job . Not only that …

.. Arizona Goveror jan Brewer puts it very , very well (and harshly) about His Lordship playing games and taking huge risks with people ‘ s lives . Not only that , he is grossly abusing the powers and duties of his office …

Blasting the president’s speech “hyper-partisan,” Gov. Brewer criticized Obama for “failing to acknowledge his own role in causing the border surge” and “deliberately refusing to take any serious steps to truly secure the border.” The current immigration crisis, she argued, is “the terrible results of electing leaders who do not respect or follow the rule of law.”

Brewer concluded her written statement by listing the three priorities she argued the American people should demand the President and Congress take: 1) securing the border, 2) expedited deportation hearings, and 3) holding accountable countries encouraging the flow of illegal immigrants.

Here is the full statement:

Statement from Governor Jan Brewer

President Obama’s Vow to Unilaterally Implement Immigration Agenda

“Today, President Obama once again played politics and lectured Congress and the American people. Instead of discussing what he is going to do immediately to address the illegal immigration crisis he manufactured, the President offered little more than the predictable rhetoric and blame shifting we have come to expect from this administration. Disturbingly, even though his role is to enforce laws passed by Congress, he once again threatens more executive actions to further thwart the will of Congress.

“Rather than take action to secure our border, President Obama makes a hyper-partisan speech to complain that his liberal immigration bill, which would reward illegal aliens with a path to citizenship, has not passed the United States House of Representatives. The illegal immigration crisis plaguing this country currently should be a wake-up call to all: elections have consequences! We are witnessing the terrible results of electing leaders who do not respect or follow the rule of law.

“The lack of support for this bill should not be surprising. The fact remains that Americans demand a secure border. However, rather than heeding this message, the President has spent the past six years steadfastly and deliberately refusing to take any serious steps to truly secure the border. The President acknowledged today that the border is not secure which, not surprisingly, contradicts his previous statements. Consequently, the country is faced with an unprecedented crisis: massive, unending waves of illegal aliens crossing our southern border, overwhelming federal authorities and their ability to enforce the law — all while costing taxpayers billions in the process.

“Failing to acknowledge his own role in causing this border surge, the President is now threatening to look for ways to act unilaterally to implement his immigration agenda using executive fiat. Until the President and his fellow congressional Democrats take concrete steps to secure the border and not reward illegal activity, they will continue to fail to earn the trust of the American people, and they will not gain broad support for comprehensive immigration reform.

“In the meantime, the American people must demand that immediate action be taken to (i) secure the border by providing the necessary personnel and resources, not bureaucrats, to stop the surge of illegal immigrants into South Texas, (ii) to amend federal law so that illegal aliens obtain expedited deportation hearings, and (iii) stop the flow from the countries of origin by holding these countries accountable, including reexamining federal aid, until they act to stop the flow of illegal immigrants out of or through their countries.”

… Do You Really Believe the ObamaCrapCare Numbers ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 8th,2014

.. to be honest , No ! …

.. net of those thrown off of their own health insurance policies , the net gain in insured is only 1 million .

.. from the numbers of folks who have lost their insurance , there are several large states who have not or did not report their numbers … and my home state [Ohio] is one of them . Believe you me , plenty of folks here got tossed off of their health insurance because of the ObamaCrapCare rules … Texas is another , Georgia , Colorado …

.. The interesting thing is exactly how many folks have been enrolled in Medicaid , and how many of those are new enrollees (i.e. , previously uninsured) …

….those numbers alone will cause a great deal of budget trouble for many states … Why ? they cannot afford it … It is one of the chief reasons that so many states took the op – out that the U.S. Supreme Court gave them in N.F.I.B. v Sebelius . They know the Medicaid Monster well , and they do not trust the Federal Government to keep its word …

… Bravo , David [Webb] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 14th,2014

.. David Webb is a hero of mine .

.. he had the guts to get back in the face of those nutjobs in the North Carolina chapter of the N.A.A.L.C.P. . They were having a protest march , entitled ” Moral Monday , ” this week in Raleigh against the new majority of the GOP in the state . To me , it sounds like these guys were behaving like a bunch of crybabies …

.. their furher , Reverend William Barber , has been in the news of late for shooting off his mouth at black Republicans in general , and US Senator Tim Scott [R-SC] , in particular . Barber has called Scott a “ventriliquist ‘ s dummy ” for standing up for what he believes in in the conservative and Tea Party agenda . No , the national N.A.A.L.C.P. is not slapping Barber down for his antics , either …

.. so , David Webb (who is a FoxNews contributor) went down to the Moral March on Monday to ask some questions . Let ‘ s say the reactions get real interesting …

… this Guy puts it Bluntly …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 10th,2012

… I came  across this article {thanks to ross kaminsky , and the American Spectator OL} ,  and this guy puts it rather blunty . He puts it to his people about the economic threat that they face from Pres Obama ‘ s re – election …

Here is the e-mail that is the subject of the conversation:

Subject: Message from David Siegel Date:Mon, 08 Oct 2012 13:58:05 -0400 (EDT) From: [David Siegel] To: [All employees]

To All My Valued Employees,

As most of you know our company, Westgate Resorts, has continued to succeed in spite of a very dismal economy. There is no question that the economy has changed for the worse and we have not seen any improvement over the past four years. In spite of all of the challenges we have faced, the good news is this: The economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same presidential administration. Of course, as your employer, I can’t tell you whom to vote for, and I certainly wouldn’t interfere with your right to vote for whomever you choose. In fact, I encourage you to vote for whomever you think will serve your interests the best.

However, let me share a few facts that might help you decide what is in your best interest. The current administration and members of the press have perpetuated an environment that casts employers against employees. They want you to believe that we live in a class system where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. They label us the “1%” and imply that we are somehow immune to the challenges that face our country. This could not be further from the truth. Sure, you may have heard about the big home that I’m building. I’m sure many people think that I live a privileged life. However, what you don’t see or hear is the true story behind any success that I have achieved.

I started this company over 42 years ago. At that time, I lived in a very modest home. I converted my garage into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you. We didn’t eat in fancy restaurants or take expensive vacations because every dollar I made went back into this company. I drove an old used car, and often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. In fact, I was married to my business — hard work, discipline, and sacrifice. Meanwhile, many of my friends got regular jobs. They worked 40 hours a week and made a nice income, and they spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars and lived in expensive homes and wore fancy designer clothes. My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time, my money, and my life into this business —-with a vision that eventually, some day, I too, will be able to afford to buy whatever I wanted. Even to this day, every dime I earn goes back into this company. Over the past four years I have had to stop building my dream house, cut back on all of my expenses, and take my kids out of private schools simply to keep this company strong and to keep you employed.

Just think about this – most of you arrive at work in the morning and leave that afternoon and the rest of your time is yours to do as you please. But not me- there is no “off” button for me. When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have that freedom. I eat, live, and breathe this company every minute of the day, every day of the week. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour. I know many of you work hard and do a great job, but I’m the one who has to sign every check, pay every expense, and make sure that this company continues to succeed. Unfortunately, what most people see is the nice house and the lavish lifestyle. What the press certainly does not want you to see, is the true story of the hard work and sacrifices I’ve made.

Now, the economy is falling apart and people like me who made all the right decisions and invested in themselves are being forced to bail out all the people who didn’t. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed 42 years of my life for. Yes, business ownership has its benefits, but the price I’ve paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the costs of running a business have gotten out of control, and let me tell you why: We are being taxed to death and the government thinks we don’t pay enough. We pay state taxes, federal taxes, property taxes, sales and use taxes, payroll taxes, workers compensation taxes and unemployment taxes. I even have to hire an entire department to manage all these taxes. The question I have is this: Who is really stimulating the economy? Is it the Government that wants to take money from those who have earned it and give it to those who have not, or is it people like me who built a company out of his garage and directly employs over 7000 people and hosts over 3 million people per year with a great vacation?

Obviously, our present government believes that taking my money is the right economic stimulus for this country. The fact is, if I deducted 50% of your paycheck you’d quit and you wouldn’t work here. I mean, why should you? Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, that’s what happens to me.

Here is what most people don’t understand and the press and our Government has chosen to ignore – to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Instead of raising my taxes and depositing that money into the Washington black-hole, let me spend it on growing the company, hire more employees, and generate substantial economic growth. My employees will enjoy the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries. But that is not what our current Government wants you to believe. They want you to believe that it somehow makes sense to take more from those who create wealth and give it to those who do not, and somehow our economy will improve. They don’t want you to know that the “1%”, as they like to label us, pay more than 31% of all the taxes in this country. Thomas Jefferson, the author of our great Constitution, once said, “democracy” will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate business, not kill it. However, the power brokers in Washington believe redistributing wealth is the essential driver of the American economic engine. Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change they want.

So where am I going with all this? It’s quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.

So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, which candidate understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn’t? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of protecting and saving your job. While the media wants to tell you to believe the “1 percenters” are bad, I’m telling you they are not. They create most of the jobs. If you lose your job, it won’t be at the hands of the “1%”; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country.

You see, I can no longer support a system that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, so will your opportunities. If that happens, you can find me in the Caribbean sitting on the beach, under a palm tree, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

Signed, your boss,

David Siegel
