… The Gitmo Detainee Center bails out [#obamacraps]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 22nd,2016

.. the slow bug – out picks up pace …

.. will it keep going ? …

.. to be honest , yes …

.. one thing that would help is passing both a separate military appropriations bill and a separate military construction bill . Keep them away from the rest of the apropos battles …

.. that way , you can go to war with POTUS over Gitmo . Tie his hands , and force the DemoCraps hands over Gitmo , as well . It will put DemoCraps on the campaign trail on the spot , whether they like it or not . Good for them …

.. Ditto with other apropos bills . Separate them . Pass them separately . That way , you can minimize the chances of any government shutdown ….

… the ObamaCraps must have a Death Wish [#Exec Action][#Gitmo]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 5th,2016

.. the ObamaCraps are famous for this . There have been a number of circumstances during his lordship ‘ s nearly two terms in office where he has acted to ” redefine ” the terms of the compact that is our Constitution . Usually , there has been at least some [but tenous] connection to an applicable ..

.. but his ? ..

.. [h/t — WFB.com]..

.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. this limitation on the actions of the Executive Branch  is nothing new . It also is not  something that was a creation of the current  majority of Republicans in Congress . The guilty party , in fact ? The  Democrats , for the most part . They passed the limitation , called an  appropriations rider in the early part of 2009 , when they has the majority in  both Houses of Congress . They were not exactly thrilled with the idea of the Gitmo detainees  ending up here in the United States . Thus , in a rare time of bipartisan cooperation , both parties voted to stop His Lordship and his cronies from moving those goofballs to a US  prison .

..  so , what happens next ? Good Question ! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 4th,2014

.. Ahmed Abu – Khattala easily fits the definition of an enemy combatant . He should then be tried , convicted , and then be executed …

… Obama does not Have the Guts , Er , Balls …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 18th,2013

.. Simply put , POTUS could close the Guantanamo Bay prison right now , if he really wanted to …

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the University of Southern California (Video of the speech) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

[-] it is a military prison . Guantanamo Bay is a Navy Base , folks . On Cuban soil , no less .

[-] Barack H. Obama is President of the United States , at least the current one .

[-] POTUS is the commander – in – chief of our army and navy , our armed forces .

.. If he really wanted to , he could issue the order , transfer the inmates out to another nation or base , and close Gitmo . Right Now . There are a few problems with that …

.. no other base is really equipped for the inmates ,

.. those bases are in allied nations ,

.. who would want those inmates . Their countries of origin sure as hell would not want them . Most of them are likely from the Arab world , from the Palestinian territories , Saudi Arabia , Kuwait , Yemen , etc .

.. Congress can restrict their transfer domestically . Not overseas . Also , not to another U.S. military base with a prison . If the commander – in – chief says they go , then they go . Congress makes the rules , and pays the bills , but the President commands .

.. Chiefly , POTUS does not have the guts . Which figures . Obama is a wus , a gutless wonder . If he had to stand election again , he would face a primary challenge . Most likely , from Miz Hillary , or some other DemoCrap willing to roll the dice , especially one with $$ .

… POTUS gets heckled , but the Heckler has a point …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 23rd,2013

.. Now , I grant you , I do not like hecklers . I think that they are show – offs , scene – stealers , and should be thrown out of the event in question on the spot . However , in this case , the heckler in question has a very good and accurate point .

.. POTUS is making a speech on foreign policy , and calls for the closure of the detainee prison at Gitmo . You would figure that someone would interrupt the speech . Well , someone did .

[link]

.. the thing is , the heckler has a point . Obama is the Commander – in – Chief . He could order the detainee prison at Guantanamo Bay , Cuba closed today , if he wanted .

… the thing is , he does not have the balls . He would pay an enormous political price here , by closing it , and overseas , by figuring out what to do with the jihadis that would then be freed by his order .

[Update] I goofed … forgot a part [h/t — RealClearPolitics] and the link (here!)

President Obama is heckled about Guantanamo Bay during his speech on terrorism at the National Defense University on Thursday.

OBAMA: There is no justification beyond politics for congress to prevent us from closing a facility that never should have been opened.
HECKLER: Excuse me, President Obama, you are commander-in-chief–
OBAMA: Today–
[crowd applauds]
OBAMA: So, let me finish, ma’am. So, today once again, today– I’m about to address it. You gotta let me address it.
HECKLER: …close Guantanamo Bay…
OBAMA: Why don’t you sit down and I’ll tell you exactly what I’m going to do. Thank you. Ma’am, thank you. You should let me finish my sentence. Today, I once again call on congress to lift the restrictions on detainee transfers from Gitmo.

… No , Baker , It is a Victory …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 30th,2013

.. of good over Evil .

.. This regards an article in  a publication called the Daily Beast . This so – called gentleman , by the  name of  Baker Ansy , has called for President Obama to immediately close Gitmo , calling it  .. ” a massive human rights failure . ” . It could not be farther from the sort . ..

.. These geniuses are taking up tactics that were taught to them in their jihadi training  . No dought , they were also  advised to do this by their legal counsel . They are acting , or trying to  act , to wage a public – relations war against the administration , just as they have done against others before them  , and others in other lands .

..  They are also engaged in legal ware , or lawfare . What this does is totally mucks up the host country ‘ s legal system , while that nation is trying to hold them to account  for their actions on the battlefield . Their hope is that , eventually , the host nation will give up , and possibly let them go free . Ultimately , they are using the host ‘ s legal system as a  weapon against it .
