… I could See Joe Manchin swtiching Parties [#post – election impact]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 24th,2015

.. but not Angus King …

.. Maine is ” light Blue ” in its orientation . The urban part [the 1st district] is very much blue . The 2nd district [the rural part] is a great deal more Red . It does not mean that Maine does not elect Republicans . It just does not do so all that often …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. West Virginia is much different . It has changed markedly over the years . The legislature is about to ” flip ” from blue to Red , and it is likely that the Governor ‘ s office will likely follow in the coming years …

.. WV 1 is already GOP , WV 2 is also GOP [Shelly Moore Capito] . WV3 is the district that is represented by a DemoCrap that is the most Republican [Nick Rahall] . Rahall has survived numerous attempts to take him out . This time , I believe that it will have been successful ….

.. so , Joe Manchin can see ” the writing on the wall . ” He votes with the GOP most of the time , anyway . This move would just make it official …

… Recep Erdogan has been partly defanged [#Turkish politics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,June 12th,2015

.. Erdogan has been the master of Turkey and its politics for over 15 years . He has a giant ego , and fashions himself the master of returning Turkey to its former greatness . But now he has stumbled …

.. Turkey just recently had elections for its parliament . Now Erdogan has a serious problem , however …

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

.. Erdogan is Turkey ‘ s president . His office carries with it quite a bit of power , but not enough for what he wants to do . So that is why Erdogan and his party , the Truth and Justice Party , or [AKP] called the elections . They thought that they would win a much larger majority . If they had , they could have turned Turkey into an authoritarian dictatorship , effectively ..

.. Well , it backfired . Erdogan ‘ s party lost its majority , and soundly . Not only that , the leftish Kurdish Workers Party [KDH] entered parliament for the first time , with 13 % of the vote …

.. now it is a question of who forms a government , and how . Erdogan [as President] controls the choice , at first . But if it is clear that his AKP cannot form a government , then he will have to turn to the opposition …

… The 4th Appeals Circuit Panel does not Get It [#election law case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 18th,2014

… the liberal activists got lucky ..

.. they drew a judicial panel of radical activists …

.. unfortunately , the US Supreme Court is going to have to step in in this case , as well …

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

.. the appeals court panel struck down parts of North Carolina ‘ s recent election [voting rights] regulation law . They have acted to restore anequivalent of what is called in Ohio as ” Golden Week . ” Golden Week makes trying to verify a person ‘ s voter registration a real headache for the county where that person lives and the state . It does not allow them to verify information before that person is allowed to cast an immediate ballot , as is done in ” Golden Week . ”

.. The state and county won at the district court level , in a clear and stunning victory . The loons then appeals . Well , they did indeed get lucky . For now…

.. so , the US Supreme Court will have to intervene . Again ….

.. what will it take for the radicals to get the message ? The ” disparate impact ” theory of legal judgement is unnatural , immoral , and evil . It must stop …

… Busy Day [#Primary Day] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 3rd,2014

.. election day , today ..

.. eight different states with primary elections , today , including : …

.. California — not too much here — the principal ones are the congressional ” jungle ” primaries . If two candidates from the same party make it to the general election , then the other party ….. too bad ….

.. the big battle should be the last district , # 52 — Incumbent Scott Peters is likely headed to a fall battle with local San Diego businessman Carl de Maio …

.. Iowa — republican Joni Ernst is likely headed to a fall battle with congresscritter Bruce Braley . If Braley can keep his foot out of his mouth , then this one will be a real barn – burner …

.. New Mexico — the set – up for the fall election . nothing major here …

.. New Jersey — ditto , except for a special election in CD # 1 …

.. South Dakota — a set – up for the fall . The prime battle will be the US Senate battle for the seat that is now currently held by retiring Senator Tim Johnson . This one is widely expected to go Republican …

.. Montana — the set for the fall battle will be the US Senate race , also a seat that is very , very highly likely to go Republican …

.. Mississippi — a crazy brawl in the Republican primary . Thad Cochoran is trying to survive and hold onto his seat . If he wins the primary [which he may not] , he would be an easy faviourite to win in the general election …

.. Alabama — nothing major , here

Is There A ‘George Brotherman’, A ‘Chocolate Klansman’?

by Smitty

What an excellent essay. I could not have said it better myself, both in terms of content quality, and I would be nailed to the wall as a three-alarm raaaaacist for laying the truth down like this :

LEC here — same here , Smitty . No one gives an Al Sharpton smackdown better than another black guy …
