… Nice Shot , Hurricane Camille ! [Paglia]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 21st,2013

.. she is amazin ‘ ..

.. Camille Paglia has been around on the scene quite a while . Just as long , you cannot quite peg where she will come down on an issue .

.. Yes , she is a proud and raging liberal . However , she is an old – school liberal , all in the sense of the word . She says what she thinks , and has more balls [yes , BALLS] that almost any other public figure that I know of on the public stage . She will not back down to anyone , repeat anyone .

.. Conservatives would be wise to think that she is on our side . She is not . Often , she is not , but often as much , she is . She is old school …

.. She let fly on the ” Duck Dynasty ” controversy . Boy , oh boy , did she ever …

Paglia.

“I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday.

“In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have the right to support homosexuality — as I one hundred percent do. If people are basing their views against gays on the Bible, again they have a right of religious freedom there,” she added.

Robertson has been suspended from Duck Dynasty due to comments he made to GQ that have been deemed “anti-gay.” According to Paglia, the culture has become too politically correct.

“To express yourself in a magazine in an interview — this is the level of punitive PC, utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist, OK, that my liberal colleagues in the Democratic Party and on college campuses have supported and promoted over the last several decades,” Paglia said. “This is the whole legacy of free speech 1960’s that have been lost by my own party.”

Paglia went on to point out that while she is an atheist she respects religion and has been frustrated by the intolerance of gay activists.

… Yea , Why Does Not Joe Manchin become a Republican ? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 21st,2013

.. it is , because he is a rare bird , ” Scoop Jackson ” Democrat .

.. Also , it is while those of his kind are accepted in the DemoCrap party . At the rate things are going , the younger and more ultraliberal crowd is ruling the roost in the Senate Dem caucus .

.. [link] to Charles Krauthammer ‘ s teaseing of Senator Manchin , when he was in Special Report ‘ s Center Seat on Fox News Channel the other night …

.. They are a majority , right now , so Manchin will probably stay . Once he feels alienated enough , and / or the idiots in that caucus ” burn down the house ” and drive the DemoCraps into the minority , Manchin will be an excellent candidate to switch parties [re : the way that Richard Shelby did in 1994 , when he crossed over , after the GOP blowout victory] . The only difference is that Manchin will likely do that BEFORE it happens …

… Great Call , Charles [ on ObamaCrapCare Media Strategy ] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 13th,2013

.. he calls out the DemoCraps on their trying to blow smoke in people ‘ s ears about the change in enrollment numbers on ObamaCrapCare ..

.. [link] to the video ..

.. if the ObamaCraps and the DemoCraps are going to have a prayer of meeting their goals on ObamaCrapCare , they are going to have to do a much better job of construction , not to mention marketing .

.. Their marketing efforts are a complete bomb . All those cancellation notices and the media attention being paid to the people being screwed out of their relationships with their hospitals and doctors has done a great deal of damage to the image of ObamaCrapCare . They have to speed up enrollments , just to catch up with the cancelations . That does not account for all of the uninsured , and the disastrous shape of Medicaid . Blowing alot of smoke up people ‘ s rear ends is no cure for the failure .

.. The failures on the construction of ObamaCrapCare are much , much worse . The complete and total lack of security is inexcusable . You expect people to trust their most private health and financial information to a bunch of government flunkies , then to a website that has no sense of security in it at all ? Are you guys crazy ?

… Are You Nuts [Congresscritter , on ” Essential Benefits “] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 6th,2013

… It makes me wonder [on ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 22nd,2013

.. this beauty of a [clip]  is from transplanted New Yorker Harold Ford Jr. .

.. Ford Jr. is the Boy Scout of the corrupt Ford family of Shelby County , Tennessee , where he is originally from . He used to represent the 9th District (the district that Steve Cohen does now) of Tennessee , which is pretty much Shelby County , and the surronding area . It is not a minority – majority district , but it does not have to be . Shelby County is in the southwestern corner of Tennessee , and the packed – in minority population gives any Democrat , in particular a black Democrat (albeit Cohen is white) a built – in advantage and power base . This is one that the Ford family has used to its advantage for many decades . However , these idiots have gotten themselves into no end of corruption scandals , time after time .

.. At least Harold Jr. behaved himself . He even ran for the U.S. Senate , and nearly won . He did not lose by much . He is not the prototypical black Dem , being pro Socialism and anti – business . Jr. is far more moderate .

.. So , at least , even now living in New York ‘ s Westchester County , and being a now wealthy investor , the DemoCraps would be wise to listen to this guy . He is a relatively straight – arrow , as most Dems go . He is also more moderate , and is a natural candidate to run for office again , either in New York , or , if he wanted to , after his return to his native Tennessee …

… What was Alan Grayson thinking ? ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 28th,2013

.. Alan Grayson is an over – the – top political figure , that is without question . But what he has done this time has put him waaaay past waaaay over the line .

.. There are quite a few demagogues in the Democratic party . Usually , these find a line that it is not acceptible to cross . Unfortunately , Alan Grayson is not one of them . When he sees any type of that line he either ignores it , or erases it . And as lunatic left fringe as the party leadership is (safe Steny Hoyer of Maryland) , I would think that they would find this commentary” far less than helpful ” . ..  One thing is fundraising . A lightning rod such as Grayson is a perfect foil to lash the DemoCraps with to the mizzen mast . Even more than that , it also represents the future lunacy that is in story (politics and policy both) if the Dems continue in any kind of power , anywhere , ever again . .. Another thing is candidate recruitment . You do not want nuts . But you do want the serious , and the committed . These days ,  the wealthiest the potential candidate , the better …

… The D.N.C. ‘ s Debt Paralysis has the Dems in Deep Trouble …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 1st,2013

.. There is another budget crisis in Washington, and it’s unfolding inside the Democratic party. The Democratic National Committee remains so deeply in the hole from spending in the last election that it is struggling to pay its own vendors. It is a highly unusual state of affairs for a national party — especially one that can deploy the President as its fundraiser-in-chief — and it speaks to the quiet but serious organizational problems the party has yet to address since the last election, obscured in part by the much messier spectacle of GOP infighting.

The Democrats’ numbers speak for themselves: Through August, 10 months after helping President Obama secure a second term, the DNC owed its various creditors a total of $18.1 million, compared to the $12.5 million cash cushion the Republican National Committee is holding.

.. Senior strategists close to the DNC say they worry the organization appears to have no road map back to solvency. “They really thought they could get this money raised by the summer,” one said, “but the fact is, from talking to people over there, they have no real plan for how to solve this.”

Sources close to the DNC say officials there have quietly laid the blame in part on the White House. It’s no secret that DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also represents an area around Miami in the U.S. House, lacks strong relationships inside the administration. But it’s not even clear who at the White House should be minding the problem these days, following the exodus of President Obama’s top political brains.

By the DNC’s count, the President has headlined 15 DNC fundraisers this year. In an indication Obama is stepping up his commitment, two of those took place last week alone — the first tacked onto his trip to New York for the United Nations General Assembly meeting, and the second later in the week at The Jefferson, a posh hotel a half-mile north of the White House on 16th Street. A White House spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

.. Another critical factor that appears to be hobbling the DNC’s fundraising is the emergence of Organizing for Action (OFA), the independent nonprofit created by Obama campaign alums in the wake of the election to push the President’s second-term agenda. An earlier iteration of that group was housed inside the DNC during the first term, but the Obama brain trust assessed it fell well short of its potential there. Now based in Chicago and headed by Jim Messina, who managed Obama’s reelection, the outfit leases the campaign’s vaunted email list and controls the @BarackObama Twitter handle (current follower count: 37.2 million), using both to drive its message and raise money.

.. The group can raise unlimited sums from deep-pocketed donors, and there is some evidence it is siphoning resources from the DNC. All of the top-tier OFA donors this year have been prolific supporters of the DNC in past years. But of the 13 who cut six-figure checks to OFA in the first half of this year, only three gave to the DNC over the same period, according to a review of records from the Center for Responsive Politics. This makes some intuitive sense.

..  While the DNC is engaged in the prosaic work of off-year party-building — a catch-all portfolio of tasks that involves, among other things, supporting state party organizations, helping down-ballot candidates, and paying for odds and ends, like expressly political travel by top administration officials — OFA offers the glamour of helping the President wage the battles unfolding day by day on the front pages. That pitch, more or less, is easy: “Supported Obama for a second term? Contribute to OFA and help him secure his legacy.” The DNC’s by definition is murkier.

“Donors are being pulled in two directions, and there’s absolutely no doubt it’s impacted the DNC’s fundraising,” one top Democratic operative said. “I’m hearing it from donors regularly that they’re being told to help one and not the other.”

That the DNC has been allowed to drift so much is in part a function of the calendar. But with the 2014 midterms coming into view, expect the party’s Congressional leadership to start applying more pressure on the White House to get involved. Without sustained help from the President, the committee will not be in a position to provide material support in that campaign. Mustering that presidential muscle will only get tougher as Obama’s second term wears on, once his attention turns to legacy projects like fundraising for his library, and big donors puzzle over whether the committee becomes a stalking-horse for a presidential bid by Hillary Clinton — or somebody else.

LEC here again — the D.N.C. has to get its act together , and soon . The state parties are going to expect help , and not just in terms of bodies . They are going to need financial help , too , and plenty of it . The DemoCraps have fires to put out all over the place , and to have a raging blaze at party HQ at this time in the cycle is a really bad idea . The sooner they can knock out the debt , the better off they will be .

.. A president ‘ s party generally has no trouble fundraising , but this time around , the D.N.C. is having to compete with O.F.A. . The DNC and the campaign committees in the House and Senate generally have no trouble countering this trend , but even they may be having problems .

.. Organizing for America is POTUS old campaign arm . It can do alot , and it is loyal to him . It cannot do one important thing , though . It cannot co – ordinate with candidates . Those kind of antics are a very big no – no . The party committees , however , can , but if there is little that they can do , in terms of tech , bodies , and $$ , then the Dems are big time screwed . They are going to need the Mother of All Presidential Fundraisers to get out of hock , and fast …

… Angela Merkel wins re – election in Germany …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 23rd,2013

.. interesting result , to say the least .

.. you may ask , why ?

.. Germany is Europe ‘ s power engine . Merkel is , at least for now , Germany ‘ s unchallenged leader . No one else even comes

Angela Merkel September 2010

Angela Merkel September 2010 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

close . No one else in any of of the other parties comes anywhere close to matching her in stature , or in policy . She may not be the idea machine that Maggie Thatcher was , but she is no dim bulb . She knows what she does , and what she does not , and is very will to seek out advice from other quarters , when she needs to ..

.. Her party coalition is made up of two parties . One is the mainline Christian Democratic Union . The other is the Bavaria – based Christian Social Union . Basically , they are one and the same . The two [ the Christian Democratic Union (C.D.U.), with its Bavarian sister party , the Christian Social Union (C.S.U.)] came very close to gaining an absolute majority in the German parliament , or Bundestag . This has not been done since 1957 , in the West German days under Konrad Adenauer .

.. Her normal coalition partners were not so lucky . The Free Democrats (the F.D.U.) were , in effect , shut out of the Bundestag in this election . They only achieved 4.8% of the vote . In Germany , you need 5.0% of the vote for your party to have representation in the Bundestag . Well , the anti – euro Alternative fur Germany (AfD) fell short , as well , at 4.7% of the national vote , so they will not be in the parliament , either . However , for their first time out , that share of the vote is not a bad result .

.. The Left in Germany had a very bad night . Amazingly enough , the loonie (far) left did all right . Both of the loonie left parties [the Greens and die Linke (the Link)] achived about 8.0 to 8.5% of the vote . The mainline left (the Social Democrats) were not so lucky . Their vote declined from the last election , to about 25.5% . The bigger problem was perception . The Social Democrats lost , and lost big , to the C.D.U. by nearly 17.0% . That hurts . The current party leadership will , in all likelyhood , have to stand down , in favour of fresh blood . What they have been doing has not worked , and they need to change …

.. So what happens next ? Merkel will be able to ease up on her austerity policy , at least somewhat . The immediate crisis has abated , but Greece and Cyprus are still the problem children . Cryprus is so small , and the Russian investors will take flight , so the Cypriots will likely be able to stay in the Euro . Not so for the Greeks . It is only a matter of time before Greece is given a stark choice , and Germany will have the whip hand .

.. Merkel ‘ s hand will be strengthened otherwise . Her power , relative to France will be much greater . Francois Hollande has proven to be a total screwup , and his Socialists are not a whole lot better . Hollande had better hope that France does not have legislative elections anytime soon , or …..

.. There are also more conservative governments in Europe . Right now , Britain is governed by a coalition , but at the next elections , the Tories , along with the UKIP , are likely to win an absolute majority . Norway is under new management , and so is Spain ….

… Dingy Harry , You are an Ass !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 9th,2013

.. seems like ol ‘ Dingy Harry (Senate DemoCrap Leader Harry Reid) was on a radio program in Nevada , earlier this afternoon . Oh Boy , did he stick his foot in his mouth . As Usual ! ..

.. Good ol ‘ Dingy Boy commented on Republican opposition ( in general ) , and Senate Republican opposition (in particular) to POTUS ‘ policies . He said that he hoped “that their opposition is based on policy , and not on the President ‘ s race . ” Huge Oops !

.. You Stupid jackhole . Only an arrogrant and pompous ass would make such boorish and racist comments as those . Republican opposition is most definitely based on policy , you [bleeping] [bleep]hole . No , it is not race – based . Only you and your arrogance and racism are race — based , you stupid jerk ! ..

… It is Open Season on Women , as Long as …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 2nd,2013

.. you are part of the team .

.. If you are a Republican , you are a bad guy or gal . It does not matter how liberal your voting record is , or how much you support so – called ” women ‘ s issues . ” You are part of the wrong team . You support a party that is ” anti – women . ”

.. Ironically , if you are a DemoCrap , you can get away with almost anything . You can touch , feel , grab , or …. , you know . Buzzfeed’s Kate Nocera looks around for Democrat women to opine on A. Weiner, Eliot and Bob Filner — mostly in vain. But liberal Emily’s List jumped to comment.

..A spokeswoman for Emily’s List, a group that works to elect women supportive of abortion rights, argued the difference between Filner’s — or Weiner’s or Spitzer’s for that matter — behavior and that of Republican gaffe-prone men has to do with the legislative priorities of the GOP.

“The difference is that Republicans’ words and personal actions are backed up by an actual party legislative agenda that hurts women — this stuff goes from infuriating and outrageous to genuinely frightening when they’re trying to back it up with real live laws that roll back the clock to a time when women were treated as second class citizens,” Emily’s List Communications Director Jess McIntosh said. “Akin only mattered because Republicans had already tried to redefine rape in legislation — the Republicans gaffing all over the place when it comes to women are not outliers. They are reflective of their party’s actual agenda.”

.. Weed through the rhetoric and red herrings and Emily’s List’s meaning is plain: As long as Democrat men support a certain set of laws, they can do whatever they want, at home, in their offices, wherever, to whomever they want. Bob Filner swats his subordinates on the rear and tells them not to wear panties to work. That’s cool with Emily’s List! Supporting abortion on demand is a Get Out of Jail Free! card for boors and cads. Bill Clinton was a true trailblazer.

.. I wonder, does it ever occur to the folks at Emily’s List that some of these boors and cads just support abortion as a means to getting power, access, and sex ?

LEC here , again — it should never be open season , on anyone , ever . People should be treated with love and respect and decency . They should be respected and admired , not ogled and leered at . Be gracious gentleman , at all times . Your reputation is your be – all and end all . Without it , you are nothing .

… Yea , Ace of Spades , It is How I Read it [Filner] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 30th,2013

.. Right now , folks , short of his resignation , the only way to get San Diego Mayor ( and former demoCrap Congresscritter ) Bob Filner is to recall him from office . The only problem : an ally of Filner ‘ s , Stampp Corbin , has taken out the petitions , and has posted the legal notice in the news media . You may wonder , what that means ?

.. Simple . No one else can take out petitions to recall Filner . Unless a judge (who may be a Filner crony) overturns the monkeyshines , the legal clock will run out (for now) on a recall effort .

.. It seems that the City of San Diego has rules for the recall of officeholders that are more stringent that those that are spelled out the the State constitution. The number of signatures is greater , the time perioud is lesser , and then there is the set – off perioud . Once an effort has failed , then six months must elapse before another can be mounted .

.. and an ally of Filner ‘ s is controlleing the recall petitions …
[h/t–SanDiegoGay&LesbianNews(sdgln.com)]

SAN DIEGO — LGBT Weekly publisher Stampp Corbin is being accused of filing a fraudulent recall notice in an effort to keep in office San Diego’s embattled Mayor Bob Filner, who faces multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
Corbin, who has a history of support and close involvement with Filner, surprised the San Diego political world on Thursday, July 25, when he was the first to initiate a recall notice against Filner via a classified ad in the UT San Diego.
According to the UT San Diego:
Publishing a notice starts a 60-day clock for the recall process, though the actual signature-gathering begins three weeks later. From there, 101,597 signatures must gathered within 39 days, with a 30-day extension allowed if needed.
Two days earlier, Corbin had published an opinion piece attacking the credibility of one of Filner’s accusers – his former fiancée Bronwyn Ingram. Some observers questioned Corbin’s motives, considering that Filner had appointed Corbin to a city commission.
By triggering the recall process on July 25, and without much fanfare, Corbin appears to be taking time away from organizers to mount a proper campaign. And it calls into question whether another recall effort led by land-use consultant Michael Pallamary, who has given Filner until today, July 29, to resign or face a recall petition, can now go forward.
In his classified ad, Corbin failed to outline in detail the case against Filner, other than “Accusations of sexual harassment by city worker against Mayor Filner.” To date, six other women outside of city government have come forward and accused Filner of sexual harassment.
Further complicating matters, Corbin has announced that he will not mount a funded campaign with paid campaign staff to collect signatures, and instead will simply make a copy of the petition available to anyone who stops by his office at LGBT Weekly.
Observers say the biggest risk is that Corbin could walk into the City Clerk’s Office any day with a few signatures, and get the petition rejected automatically. Such a rejection by the City would guarantee six extra months in office for Filner, as city rules prohibit filing of recall petitions against a city official if a petition has failed within the past six months.
Evidence against Corbin was circumstantial and speculative until a witness with insider information stepped forward to reveal his true motive, published in Sunday’s UT San Diego.
Susan Jester, head of the Log Cabin Republicans of San Diego County and a longtime political activist, said she had spoken to Corbin several times last week about the recall matter and is convinced that he is playing “Chicago-style politics.”
“He bragged to me that it would be a way to stop the group getting ready to file” their own recall drive, Jester told the UT San Diego. “He said, ‘It occurred to me that it would derail the other group.’”
Corbin denied the accusation when questioned by UT San Diego on Saturday night, but Jester wasn’t buying his explanation. She recalled Corbin telling her this:
“He was expressing a tactic in his mind, how to derail the Filner recall process,” Jester told the newspaper. “I thought at first he was half-joking. But I saw it on his Facebook page. It really infuriates me. We have a right as citizens to file a genuine recall. We have a mayor grossly out of control and ruining our city.”
In a separate piece published on CalWatchdog.com, blogger Chris Reed labels Corbin as a “gay-baiting gay activist” for his efforts to play the gay card against Filner’s opponent in the 2012 election – Carl DeMaio. Reed also labels Corbin’s recall effort as a stunt to thwart a successful recall.
If Corbin is trying to keep Filner in office, he would be doing so in the face of overwhelming opposition to Filner within the LGBT community. On Friday, The San Diego LGBT Community Center’s board of directors went on record demanding Filner’s resignation and the San Diego Democrats for Equality issued the same demand on Thursday, along with the San Diego Democratic Party and the national Democratic Party.
As a matter of full disclosure, SDGLN Publisher Johnathan Hale has a personal relationship with Carl DeMaio.
LEC here , again — You bet that it is a scam . The city charter ‘ s rules are tigher than the state ‘ s for a reason , to make recall efforts a pain in the [bleep] . Also , the scam effort and the legal notice wre meant to screw any other effort to try to take out Filner . I doubt any other one can be mounted , for now , unless the state courts intervene and slapp down Corbin for his fraud .

… Incredible ! Filner has been at this for years …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 29th,2013

.. and the demoCraps in D.C. (that means Pelosi & Co) and in CA (that ropes in Henry Waxman & Co) knew about it for YEARS !

.. What i did not know is that Bob Filner was only recently elected Mayor of San Diego . He only recently left the House , once he was elected . And the abuse of people and sexual misconduct goes all the way back to the late 1970s…

[h/t — //voiceofsandiego.org]

The local Democratic Party has known for a long time about sexual harassment allegations against Bob Filner, a former Democratic assemblywoman said in a Thursday interview.

“I blew the whistle on this two years ago to the Democratic Party leadership,” former Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña said.

Saldaña said that in summer 2011 six prominent women in local politics, business and education told her that Filner had physically or verbally harassed them. Saldaña had been exploring what turned out to be an unsuccessful bid for Congress and the conversations came in the context of the 2012 elections.

Saldaña said she contacted former party Chairman Jess Durfee with the allegations and Durfee was among a group of Democratic leaders who met with Filner to discuss them that summer. She said nothing happened.

“As disgraceful as Bob’s behavior has been, it’s been tolerated by our Democratic Party leadership,” she said.

Saldaña said Filner never personally harassed her and declined to say who alleged to have had run-ins with the mayor. She said former City Councilwoman Donna Frye, who is calling for Filner’s resignation over unspecified sexual harassment allegations, inspired her to talk.

Saldaña has a long history of conflict with Filner, most prominently over a failed border sewage treatment project about a decade ago. She also wound up endorsing him for mayor.

Party leaders, she said, made it clear that if people didn’t support Filner they wouldn’t receive their support again.

Durfee, the former party chairman, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Current party Chairwoman Francine Busby released a statement after the allegations broke Wednesday saying she and the party take sexual harassment claims very seriously and that they’re awaiting the mayor’s response.

Update: Former Democratic Party Chairman Jess Durfee confirmed to U-T San Diego that Saldaña complained to him about Filner’s conduct. “He assured me there was nothing to be concerned about,” Durfee told the U-T. Filner also assured Durfee that no one had filed a sexual harassment complaint against him and that he had many female staffers. Durfee also said that he asked the women who spoke with Saldaña to contact him, but none did.

Update II: Busby responded to tell me that party leaders looked at Filner’s 30-year record of advocating for progressive causes when evaluating him as a candidate for mayor. Discussions involving Filner’s poor treatment of women never rose above rumor, she said.

… the Perverted Party …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 27th,2013

.. how anyone can tolerate such infantile and immoral behaviour out of candidates for office , or out of sitting office holders , is beyond me ? Yet , the DemoCraptic Party continues to do so . The latest examples are currently on public display .

..Liberal bias is not a matter of unfairness, but rather a matter of dishonesty —  deliberately ignoring some facts, and misrepresenting other facts, in order to misinform the public by portraying to them a politically falsified view of
events and personalities. If there were ever any honest person employed by the  New York Times (one can stipulate the hypothetical), that person would have been obligated to quit Thursday morning, when the banner headline on the front page of the paper should have been: “ANDREW BREITBART WAS RIGHT.” (An appropriate subhead might be, “Anthony Weiner Is a Typically Dishonest Democrat Dirtbag.”)

.. Cheating a great man out of his posthumous vindication is, however, just small change in the vast franchise of journalistic dishonesty of which the New York Times is the flagship enterprise. The fundamental falsehood of the whole Big Lie business is that Democrats are virtuous simply because they are Democrats, which is the only reason any fool ever could have
thought a wretched human stain like Anthony Weiner worthy of admiration. . .

.. Whatever anyone might say about that incident, it certainly was not a coincidence, nor was it coincidental that liberal media organizations were perfectly willing to assist in Weiner’s political rehabilitation. There was a reason, after all, that Weiner’s young cybersex partner told her tale to a gossip blog, rather than to any major newspaper or TV network. If a conspicuously married Democrat politician is engaged in sleazy shenanigans with a 22-year-old, no respectable liberal journalist wants to break that story. In 2011, it was Andrew Breitbart who turned Anthony Weiner’s sordid secrets into a national drama that drove the New York congressmen to resign in disgrace. Breitbart died last year, and so the latest revelations came from Nik Richie at TheDirty.com, because none of the “mainstream” reporters at the New York Times, the Washington Post, NBC, ABC, CBS or CNN showed the least bit of curiosity about the other young girls who had been objects of Weiner’s perverse attentions. Exactly
how many others there were we probably will never know, because there has been a rigorous journalistic commitment to knowing as little as possible about the online erotic adventures of “Carlos Danger,” as Weiner sometimes styled
himself. If Watergate had been reported in the manner of WeinerGate, Ben Bradlee never would have let Woodward and Bernstein go so far as to mention the name of E. Howard Hunt in the pages of the Washington Post.

.. Did anyone mention that Anthony Weiner is a Democrat? Republican politicians have occasionally survived sex scandals, but only a Democrat could expect to survive after being caught twice . And only a Democrat could, after such a humiliating revelation, hold a press conference and say that his plan was to “move forward,” bringing along the wife he had so deliberately betrayed, expecting her to stand beside him and avow her continued devotion to him. (How smooth, indeed.) Democrats have managed to convince a lot of Americans that there is no real danger to our society from creeps and perverts and rampant promiscuity. No, say the Democrats, the real danger is that those reactionary Republican bigots might “turn back the clock” and deprive America of such glorious pleasures as abortion, sex education, pornography and casual hook-ups arranged on the Internet.

.. It is interesting how Democrats are permitted this double standard: They defend the “right” of people to do what Anthony Weiner did (and do much worse), yet pretend they are not actually in favor of them doing it. Therefore it is best, from the liberal perspective, that no one make too much of the lurid details of Weiner’s antics, nor examine the effort to intimidate Weiner’s critics, nor suggest that Weiner’s persistently abnormal appetites are closely related to his status as a loyal Democrat. Any decent parent would be outraged at the thought of married middle-aged men secretively sending Internet messages to ask if their daughter’s crotch is “smooth,” and no decent parent would ever vote for the Pervert Party.

… A Superb Moral Speech [Elbert Guillory] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 22nd,2013

.. and , not bad on the politics , either .

.. Up until recently , who had heard of Elbert Guillory ? To be honest , I had not . Not a clue . Then , all of a sudden , BANG ! Hey , what he did took some serious brass . Most officeholders do not have the guts to do it . This guy did . Not only that , he is going to stay in office , and in his current district , and run for re – election . The DemoCraps are going to come after him with both gun barrels blazing , I will guarantee you that . But , State Senator Guillory [R-La] has already been through the toughest parts of the test .

.. I am going to provide for you the text of his speech , courtesy of RealClearPolitics . There is no way to know how long that the video of his speech will be carried in RCP ‘ s archives . A long time , yes , but , I have no idea . However , the text is equally powerful …

.. since WordPress does not support the format that RCP uses , I will provide a link to the video [here] .

Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas) explains why he recently switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party. He discusses the history of the Republican Party, founded as an Abolitionist Movement in 1854. Guillory talks about how the welfare state is only a mechanism for politicians to control the black community.

Hello, my name is Elbert Lee Guillory, and I’m the senator for the twenty-fourth district right here in beautiful Louisiana. Recently I made what many are referring to as a ‘bold decision’ to switch my party affiliation to the Republican Party. I wanted to take a moment to explain why I became a Republican, and also to explain why I don’t think it was a bold decision at all. It is the right decision — not only for me — but for all my brothers and sisters in the black community.

You see, in recent history the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow it’s been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.

Frederick Douglass called Republicans the ‘Party of freedom and progress,’ and the first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln, the author of the Emancipation Proclamation. It was the Republicans in Congress who authored the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments giving former slaves citizenship, voting rights, and due process of law.

The Democrats on the other hand were the Party of Jim Crow. It was Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners. It was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, but it was Democrats in the Senate who filibustered the bill.

You see, at the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing — control. And they disguise this control as charity. Programs such as welfare, food stamps, these programs aren’t designed to lift black Americans out of poverty, they were always intended as a mechanism for politicians to control black the black community.

The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our communities are just as poor as they’ve always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.

Sometimes I wonder if the word freedom is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.

The idea of freedom is complex and it is all-encompassing. It’s the idea that the economy must remain free of government persuasion. It’s the idea that the press must operate without government intrusion. And it’s the idea that the emails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure. It’s the idea that parents must be the decision makers in regards to their children’s education — not some government bureaucrat.

But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness free from government dependence and free from government control. Because to be truly free is to be reliant on no one other than the author of our destiny. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

So my brothers and sisters of the American community, please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the Party of disappointment. So that we may all echo the words of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last.’

… Fitz must be wary …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 31st,2013

… Ed Fitzgerald is a newbie in statewide politics in Ohio . He has no idea , as of yet , how nasty , how vicious , and expensive that it is . That being , he is also inexperienced as hell statewide . He has never run a state wide campaign of any kind . He has not undergone the fund raising ordeal that it is to gather the tens of millions of dollars that it will take to win a statewide party primary , much less a fall general election campaign against a fairly popular (& improving) incumbent governor , John Kasich , espc. If possible , Kasich may well have presidential ambitions .

 

Fitzgerald ‘ s advantages –

[-] telegenic –

[-] inexperienced – normally , you would want experience . coming from the mess that was Cuya Cty , not so much

[-] statewide Dem machine – even with all of the fuckups , Ohio Dems can and do still win statewide elections . just not as much as before…

[-] national backing [Dems] – Obama & the DNC owe Ohio Dems big time , and for obvious reasons .

[-] national motivation [unions] – the unions have lots of motivation . and going after Kasich in a general election campaign may well be more practical than starting World War III in another iniatiative campaign . Ohio ‘ s GOP is unlikely to make the same mistake , twice , and they dominate the legislature

[-] profession – Fitzgerald is (was) an FBI agent , which never hurts , and can help , espc w.

[-] corruption – free – so far – Fitz was not a part of the old regime in Cuyahoga County , and did not and would not participate in the massive corruption scandal which , ironically , eventually led to him becoming Cuya Cty ‘ s first Executive .

Disadvantages –

[-] inexperienced – Fitz is in his first term , and has not had much of a chance to establish a record . In Cuya Cty ‘ s case , that may not be so bad , because just making the trains run on time without any taint of corruption should give the conductor a big lift

[-] unknown – in Ohio , you generally do not win statewide on your first attempt . Sometimes , it happens .

[-] incumbent – John Kasich is in a similar position as the governor that Fitz is as Cuya Cty Exec . Having the trains run on time corruption free , and an improving economy , help the incumbent , and make it much harder for a challenger …

… a Takedown for Linda McMahon …

… a job well done for Linda McMahon . So far , So good . …

… she has run a very adept campaign for the U S Senate once again , this time around . Well , it also helps that she is not facing another well – known and statewide – known candidate . Representative Chris Murphy [D-Ct] is definitely not in Richard Blumenthal ‘ s weight class …

… I wonder how Blumenthal will like having her as the ” potential ” junior senator for their state . Hmmm …

… Well , here is a sample of them in combat …
