… Bill Clinton ‘ s ” holding ” company is [#WJC , llc]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 18th,2016

.. a sham , a fraud ..

.. one thing that it does is avoid disclosure . He is not required to disclose his outside sources of income and assets , normally . however , he was the spouse of a then – US Senator , and then the US Secretary of State . So , then , and only then is he able and required to report assets and income . Which , knowing the Clintons , is something that they want to avoid ..

.. so , the shell company ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. also , the company is a tax dodge . It can be used to funnel income [and hide expenses] (via the shell) to the Clintons personally [and as a couple] , as well as to the Clintonoid Foundation . It then makes it both a tax fraud and a charitable fraud …

.. ” slight ” oops !!!! ..

… It Figures … A Decline in the True # of Deportations [#accurate figures]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 1st,2016

.. amazingly enough , an intrepid reporter from the A.P. did their homework . So , what did their digging root up ? More than one very big surprise …

.. the #s of deportations began to surge during Dubya ‘ s 2nd term . No big shock there . But what was the big shock was confirmation of a long – suspected suspicion … that deportations of everyone , both Mexican and non – Mexican , have declined markedly over the current 7 years of the ObamaCrap Administration .. that is the big surprise ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. everyone long suspected this , even the ObamaCraps . No one really cared to do the homework to find out the truth , until now . Now it has been done , and it has uncovered a huge fraud …

.. a great deal of the deportation figures for the ObamaCrap Administration are a fraud . Many of the folks that have been given the boot [both Mexican and non – Mexican alike] are folks that have BEEN apprehended at the border . In that way the ObamaCraps could tout a ” surge ” in deportations , while implementing their ” lack of enforcement ” policies . Now , they are really , really busted . They have been caught in the act …

… The Disgrace of an Intelligence Scandal [#I.S.I.S.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 25th,2016

.. Steve Hayes really nailed it on this one ..

.. given the actions of the ObamaCraps , it has happened before . Yes , with Al Qaeda . Al Qaeda was beginning to rise up again , and the ObamaCraps did not want that king – sized fact getting known to the public . How did they do it ?? ..

.. by manipulating and crafting the intel to fit their own readily – designed narrative . A surprise ? ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog article ..

.. not really , given this crowd . It seems that most every administration does it to a limited extent . But doing it like this during the Age of Obama ? Outrageous ! …

.. I.S.I.L. is far more of a threat than anyone has realized . They have an economic base of support on which to draw on for financial and logistical support . Worse is the abundance of fighters from two effectively ” failed ” states [Syria & Iraq] upon which to assemble an armed force . Even worse yet is the failure of the Iraqi army to assemble a fighting force that will really fight . They flee the field and abandon their weapons . It givens I.S.I.L. an bounty of modern arms on which to use . So there is ample reason to fear I.S.I.L. ….

… The Federal Government [ and the DofiJ] is in Big Trouble [#Texas v US]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 1st,2015

.. well , the Federal court had a hearing this past week . The InJustice Department ‘ s so – called ” Advisory ” pleading that it filed at the beginning of the month has hit the case like a bomb in a lead casing …

.. the Judge in the case [#Texas v US] , Andrew Hanen , was not happy to say the least . The counsels for the DofiJ were on the spot . The judge had those lawyers being filleted on a spit for the government ‘ s conduct . The judge also struck down almost all of the government ‘ s claims and defenses . It was not pretty …

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog article ..

.. the case will move to the 5th Appeals Circuit , eventually . However , the FEds case will be severely weakened . The arguments and pleadings are likely to be stricken from the record . That will present the appeals court with only the plaintiff ‘ s side . That is unsual , but the Apeeals Court judges will know why …

.. on up the line , so will the Supremes . You have to think that the U.S. Supreme Court is playing close attention to this case already . They know that this case is strongly likely to fall into their lap . Yes , the government will have its arguments back in the case . not until later , and everyone will know why …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 7th,2014

.. would anyone be surprised ?!?! ..

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

.. the real biggie is the ” renewed ” [read : recycled] effort by the U.N. and a number of major powers to bring back a climate change treaty . Maybe things will be different , but I doubt it . China is too far along on its development track to change . Ditto India . Soon , the U.S. will change , because Congress will be fully in the hands of the GOP . His Lordship ‘ s hands will then be tied , lest he wants to get his butt kicked out the door …

.. Australia will not participate in the new effort . the new Liberal government knows the Chinese and India well . They will not play ball . Europe will harrumph and scream , but then will do nothing . The Aussies are not small fry that can be pushed around , and POTUS knows it ….

.. If Obama tries to muscle Abbott , Abbott will respond in kind . Abbbott knows that he has conservative support in the U.K. , as well as from the GOP . Obama will be and has been fatally weakend by scandal after scandal . The VAgate scandal will just be the ” cherry on the top . “

… Those Dummies Knew [VAgate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 29th,2014

.. what a big surprise ! ..

.. still , it is damning ..

.. [h/t — WashingtonTimes]..

.. [link] to the article ..

.. did it originate in the Bush Admin ? Yes . However , it started late in their time , and it was not in an easy position for them to deal with it . The big problem for them would have been the DemoCraps and their socialist Demagoguery in Congress . So , they did pass the ball , and gave the ObamaCraps a head’s up …

.. the Washington Times found evidence the Obama administration knew about the problems from the time of its transition into the White House :

The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal.

Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

The briefing materials, obtained by The Washington Times through the Freedom of Information Act, make clear that the problems existed well before Mr. Obama took office, dating back at least to the Bush administration. But the materials raise questions about what actions the department took since 2009 to remedy the problems.

.. for the ObamaCraps , they wanted to do the traditional liberal remedy : they threw money at the problem. They have little incentive to do much of anything else …

.. to remedy the problems though would have made them public , and think back then to early 2009 : Team Obama was trying to sell America on Obamacare, so it’s extremely unlikely that people calling for a greatly increased government role in health care would want to make public a horrific example of what can happen when bureaucrats are in charge of a health care operation. The Obama administration — or any Dems pushing for Obamacare or single-payer — wouldn’t have wanted to shine a light on the VA debacle for the same reason airlines don’t show “Mayday at 40,000 Feet” as the in-flight movie .

.. so , they kept their mouths shut . Now , the bug is coming back to bite them … Big Time  !! …

There does appear to be a time span that will allow Team Obama to blame Bush, and don’t think they won’t run with that. However, that does little to explain why nothing was done about the problem for years since.

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 29th,2014

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 23rd,2014

.. evidently , there is a VA hospital in Gainesville , Florida . I did not know that . But , I do now ….

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the news report …

.. my guess is geography . Gainesville is southeast of Tallahassee , and is well north of Tampa / St. Pete . It is also northwest of Orlando . In other words , the Gainesville area (while now large in population) is off by itself . So , it does need a VA hospital . The thing is …

.. another VA facility got busted for playing fast and cute with the waiting lists . Jeez Louise , folks . Who has not done this ?? …

… the Idiots are At It Again in Oregon [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 8th,2014

.. believe it or not , it is getting worse .

.. when we last left them , the website from hell , CoverOregon , was a disaster . The state government in Salem had managed to piss away around a quarter of a billion [yes , $250 million] dollars in taxpayer funds on the entire enterprise . The federal website [] is bad enough , folks . This state – level one is even worse than that , if it is possible .

.. Yes , it is possible . Governor John Kitzhaber (himself a doctor) has led the effort to piss all of that money down the rat hole . Now , Kitz & Company (along with Jeff Merkely , the state ‘ s junior US Senator) are up for election this fall . The fallout from this is going to be devastating . And it keeps getting worse ….

.. somehow , these jokers managed to piss away another [yes , ANOTHER] $100 million in fed funds on the enterprise . Remember , CoverOregon is a state -level exchange . The state of Oregon is responsible for it all . And , you will love this next fact …

.. Number of people enrolled by the website — 0 [zero , the big Zippo] ..

.. these dummies managed to create dummy websites to fool the federales in order to keep the $$$ flowing ,especially the early $$ (before the main $$ stash arrived) …

.. [h/t — hotair] also [h/t —] — KATU –  TV , Salem , Oregon .

.. [link] to the news report .. it is a bit long (at about 10 minutes) , but it is well worth it .

.. the DemoCraps in Salem [Oregon ‘ s state capitol] have to be swearing at KATU – TV over this . The investigative reporting on this stuff is fantastic as well as damning . The DummyCraps who control Oregon ‘ s legislature are going to have to investigate this with a fine – tooth comb . Either they do , or a new GOP majority will do so .

.. The state Dem party is going to hate that , but tough . The ads that interest groups , the stateGOP , and the campaigns (especially Dr. Monica Wehby ‘ US Senate campaign against Merkely) are going to be thick  as fleas , and they are going to be hot as tamales . The DemoRats are going to pay a severe price for this nationwide enough as it is , but this corruption raises what is going on here in Oregon to a whole new level .

.. It is going to be throw  – out – the – bums time this fall in Salem and in Oregon . The only questions are how many , at what level  , and where .

… Oh , You Said that ObamaCrapCare Would not lead to Single – Payer ? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 12th,2013

from the Washington Examiner : …

..NPR’s Steve Inskeep pressed for more clarity. “Can you say flat out it’s just never going to be single-payer health insurance and we’re going to try to write it if we can so that it won’t ever be?” he asked.

..“Oh, I think – I think that’s very much the case,” Sebelius replied. “And again, if you want anybody to convince people of that, talk to the single-payer proponents, who are furious that the single payer idea is not part of the discussion.”

.. That’s not true , according to “Dingy Harry ” Reid. “What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” he said on “Nevada Week in Review” on Friday evening, before saying that the United States needs to develop a single-payer plan. “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”

.. It figures . She is a notorious liar . And , good ol ‘ Dingy Harry is worse . The “public option” that those numb – nuts wanted to include is basically a single – payer health care system . The only payer would be the government itself . All private transactions in health insurance and health would be , as I would think , be banned or outlawed . Good luck trying that in this country .

.. ObamaCrapCare is already on the verge of collapse . Costs are soaring . People realized that they have been defrauded , and have been sold a false bill of goods , a colossal stinker of epic proportions .

.. The dummies on Crapitol Hill keep on forgetting some basic laws , such as : [-] the law of supply and demand ; add on more requirements , and keep on cutting reimbursements to doctors , pharmacists , and hospitals , and you will send costs into orbit ; [-] the law of unintended consequences — all sorts of changes are occuring that those dummies never though of , or anticipated ; and [-] the law of human nature — nice one , dummies — decades of cost controls are blowing up in all of our faces .

Anyone surprised that Democrats envision Obamacare morphing into single payer hasn’t been listening to what Democrats have been saying.

The collapse of the private insurance market under Obamacare isn’t a bug, it’s a feature.

But you would have known that if you had been reading Legal Insurrection in the summer of 2009, including Deception and Tyranny Key To Health Care Reform:

The only way the Obama administration and Democrats can force through the types of changes they envision for the health care system is through deception and tyranny.

… You can thank Homeland Security for This Idiocy …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 11th,2013

.. news such that from these is outrageous .

.. The drug cartels (in Mexico) present a significant security threat . Not just to the Mexican people , but to the people of the United States . it is without doubt that the cartels have contacts with gangs , with the remains of the Mafia , and other groups throughout our country . However , their effect remains muted , at least in our country .

.. Even so , in Mexico , their country has evolved , and has grown . Mexico has not emerged into the First World , but its time is coming . Its economy is becoming far more diverse , and industrial , as well as service and information – based . It is most definitely not an “oil” economy , not anymore . Even their oil sector is beginning to reform itself . Amazing , by Mexican standards , considering how rife with corruption that Petroleonos Mexicanos (or , PEMEX) has been for decades . It has never gotten as rife with violence and drug gang control as Columbia did a generation ago.

.. However , one cannot discout the drug cartel threat . They are ongoing and continuing threat , on both sides of the border . It most definitely does not justify what is happening right now on the border , especially with the immigration debate that is underway .

.. Homeland Security has created a huge new loophole . Either by its actions , or by its lack of action . There is no excuse for it . None , at all . Period . They are acting as if they are waving “ole” at the border , and allowing a new flood of illegals in . Their actions will backfire . Spectacularly .

… this piece is from KSAZ (Fox–Phoenix,AZ) …


A loophole is allowing hundreds of immigrants across the Mexico border in to the United States.
Immigrants are being taught to use “key words and phrases” to be allowed to enter and stay in the country.

Just this past Monday, Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing claiming a quote: “credible fear” of the drug cartels.

So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.

“They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they  will be allowed into the country,” said a person who did not want to be identified on camera.  “We are being overwhelmed.”

Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert says, “This will swamp the system.”
“To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the  past,” he adds.  “There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don’t want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail.”
Nunez says, “It’s a huge loophole.”
“There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implementation that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in.”
Immigrants are telling the Port Enforcement Team — or P.E.T. — that the cartels are ripping apart their state.

There’s no word on whether this same loophole is being used in Arizona.

Sudden Flood of Asylum Requests at U.S./Mexico Border


Email Article

Print ArticleSend a Tip

            by            Lee Stranahan11 Aug 2013, 3:24 AM PDT2501post a comment

At the Otay crossing near the San Diego border last Monday, about 200 people coming from Mexico gained entry to the United States all using the same key phrase; they claimed they had a ‘credible fear’ of drug cartels. According to KSAZ FoxPheonix:


So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.


“They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they  will be allowed into the country,” said a person who did not want to be identified on camera.  “We are being overwhelmed.”


This apparent new shift in tactics to enter the United States comes at a time when the Associated Press is reporting a spike in the number of asylum requests in the past few years:


According draft testimony for USCIS Associate Director Joseph Langlois that was to be submitted for a congressional hearing on asylum requests last month, USCIS received more than 19,119 asylum requests through the end of May. The agency anticipates receiving more than 28,600 by the end of the fiscal year.


According to the testimony, during the 2009 budget year the agency received just 5,369 such requests.


However, this new phenomenon is out of all proportion, even with this spike. To put those numbers in perspective with the 200 people making asylum requests on one day at one border crossing, 200 people a day equals 73,000 people a year — close to three times the total number received all year, at all border crossings.


KSAZ reports the new tactic could easily overwhelm the immigration system, quoting immigration attorney and former immigration official Pete Nunez:


“To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the  past,” he adds. “There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don’t want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail.” Nunez says, “It’s a huge loophole.”


“There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implementation that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in.”


The goal, however, may be to overwhelm the system. This apparent new tactic comes on the heels of widely publicized activism by a group called ‘The Dream 9’ who also used a claim of asylum to gain re-entry to the country. As leftist organization Colorlines reported last week:


All nine of the activists have now established credible fear, a step toward an asylum hearing. Supporters are now hoping the Dream 9 will be eligible for parole, which would allow them to return to the United States until their asylum hearing dates.


This connection between the ‘Dream 9’ and the tactic of asylum was made by Spanish-language news source La Opiniòn. They report (translation by Google Translation) in an article entitled El asilo se volvió un sueño (in English: The asylum becomes a dream):


Following the release of nine Dreamers prisoners in Arizona, after a protest at the border, others have taken the path of asylum as a way to solve their deportation.


Media reports in San Diego are reporting that “hundreds of foreigners are trying to enter the country in the same way” and even that immigrants are being taught to use key phrases that they can stay in the country.


Reports tell of cases in the Port of Entry Otay Mesa, where 199 people have argued a ‘credible fear “to the drug cartels in Mexico.


And the validation of Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) of the status of “credible fear”, which allowed young people to stay at home and return to their families seems to have generated more of a headache for Immigration.


La Opiniòn goes on to quote Marshall Fitz, the immigration policy expert the liberal Center for American Progress, who points out that many would not qualify and it’s not a good ‘long term strategy’ for those attempting to cross the border.

… Fight , Texas , Fight !! ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 26th,2013

.. Good ! It seems that Texas is definitely going to fight back . Now that the tools are better there , the state of Texas should be in much better shape . I cannot predict victory , but they will have a much better chance of it .

.. It seems His Imperial Highness , Eric Holder , wants to go on the attack against the states . Any state will do . He wants to do away with several measures , not limited to , or including Voter I.D. . It may not be limited to that , I believe . Any measure related to voting integrity , or the prevention of voting fraud , such as the purging or cleaning of voter registration rolls . How the Department of InJustice intends to do it , good question ?

.. The Department of InJustice is preparing to take fresh legal action in a string of voting rights cases across the nation, U.S. officials said, part of a new attempt to blunt the impact of a Supreme Court ruling that the Obama administration has warned will imperil minority representation.

The decision to challenge state officials marks an aggressive effort to continue policing voting rights issues and follows a ruling by the court last month that invalidated a critical part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The justices threw out a part of the act that determined which states with a history of discrimination had to be granted Justice Department or court approval before making voting law changes.

.. In the coming weeks, Attorney General Holder expected to announce that the Justice Department is using other sections of the Voting Rights Act to bring lawsuits or take other legal action to prevent states from implementing certain laws, including requirements to present certain kinds of identification in order to vote. The department is also expected to try to force certain states to get approval, or “pre-clearance,” before they can change their election laws.

.. “Even as Congress considers updates to the Voting Rights Act in light of the Court’s ruling, we plan, in the meantime, to fully utilize the law’s remaining sections to subject states to pre-clearance as necessary,” Holder said in a speech Thursday morning in Philadelphia. “My colleagues and I are determined to use every tool at our disposal to stand against such discrimination wherever it is found.”

Holder announced that, in a first step, the department will support a lawsuit in Texas that was brought by a coalition of Democratic legislators and civil rights groups against the state’s redistricting plan.
