… Congress and POTUS are heading for a confrontation [#Gitmo detainees]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 11th,2016

.. POTUS wants to close the Gitmo Bay detainee camp . Congress does not . God knows there is a difference of opinion..

.. However , there has been a law passed to stop the expenditure of funds to transfer the detainees to anywhere in the U.S. . Plain and Simple . So POTUS cannot do anything about it ..

.. Unfortunately , this POTUS has a habit of taking ” executive actions ” to get his way . yes , He is that pigheaded . However , doing so in this case is risking a constitutional confrontation with Congress ..

.. POTUS has had a habit of baiting Congress with his actions . He is daring Congress to impeach him . If he pulls a stunt like this , he just may well get his wish …

… Missouri Governor Jay Nixon should resign [#failure]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 28th,2016

.. if he does not , then he must be impeached , tried , convicted , and removed from office …

.. the greater Saint Louis area had plenty of warning about the release of the grand jury decision . Governor Nixon obviously knew what might be coming . He is the commanding officer of his state ‘ s National Guard . He should have damn well known what could have happened in the potential aftermath of the announcement …

.. well , he [bleeped] up . Huge . The National Guard was mobilized . But only 750 troops . When much more were needed …

.. eventually , Governor Nixon called up an additional 1,500 National Guardsmen and Guardswomen . Finally , at last …. now , things are much more peaceful , at last …

.. however , it is a responsibility that Governor Nixon must bear , and bear alone . He is alone command responsible for what he does or does not do to help deal with the situation . He could have and should have done far better to help deal with the situation . Evidently , the Mayors of Ferguson and St. Louis [city] both wanted to reach Gov. Nixon regarding the National Guard . They could not . That is unforgivable , given the situation . There must be accountability for this situation …

.. Jay Nixon must resign as Governor of Missouri . If he does not , he must be impeached and removed from office …

… What If [#POTUS][#gitmo closure plan]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 26th,2016

.. What if POTUS goes ahead with the closure plan by executive action ?? ..

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

.. we could really well see the spectacle of an impeachment balltle in an election year . An impeachment inquiry , at the very least ..

.. any possible impeachment and trial would be held , potentially ,after the November election ..

… The Good Guys Strike Back [#SCOTUS][#exec overreach]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 25th,2016

.. POTUS  acts as if he is a power unto himself . He is  so damn arrogant that he does not seem to realize that there are limits to executive power . POTUS is not , as the Latinos call it , a caudillo , whose own word is law . He is a law unto himself . Un – uh . Our nation and our Constitution do not work that way ..

.. POTUS is the head of the Executive Branch . He / she is the head of one of three co – equal branches . If one branch [the Executive] starts to get too big for their britches , then one or both of the other two branches can and will strike back ..the blog post …

.. In this case , it is SCOTUS who has struck back , and handed the E.P.A. a stunning loss . It still applies , even with the death of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia ..

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

.. The E.P.A. has proposed what is known as the ” CleaN Power Plan . ” The plan is nothing more than a gigantic gross regulatory overreach into al of our lives . It also allows the OC to implement their Climate change plans by stealth , anD NOT BY LAW . wEll , the courts are having nothing of it .>

.. SCOUTS saw this COMing . It also saw a OC – stuffed dc appeals circuit that ould play aournd with the plan so that Scotus COULD not get its hands on it . WEll ,, SCOTUS saw right thru that stunt , and slapped down the D.C. Circuit , as well as the O.C. ..

… The Impact of Such an Order [#POTUS][#Israeli jet shootdown order]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 30th,2015

.. yes , I consider this source to be fairly credible .

.. so , consider the potential fallout ..

.. [-] US — many US pilots and senior military officers and enlisted would refuse to obey it . They would force the existence of such an order out into the open via a court – martial proceeding . Forcing US military to obey an illegal order is one thing : they would not obey such an order ..

.. an immoral order is something else . Pushing the issue to a court – martial may be the only way to resolve the issue …

.. [-] POTUS — the public revelation of such an order , and the refusal of our military to obey it , would cause an enormous uproar . There would be immediate calls for POTUS ‘ resignation , along with that of VPOTUS . If they did not , then they would likely be facing impeachment proceedings in Congress …

.. there would be a near – permanent rupture between the DemoCraps and many in the Jewish community . Many liberal Jews may not vote GOP , but they would cease support of the Dems . Especially damaging would be the loss of financial and organizing support …

.. [h/t — theJewishPress.com]..
.. [link] to the press report …

.. [-] Israel — you would think that Israel would consider itself to be all along in the world . They would not think things that way . They would realize that such an action by Obama would result in his removal from office , and grave damage to the jewish community ‘ s relations with the Democratic party …

…Be Careful What You Wish For [#Impeachment]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 4th,2014

.. you just might get it ..

.. right now , the DemoCraps are conducting a fundraising marathon – to – beat – all over the ” I ” word …. not a big shock …

.. amazingly enough , even senior White House aides [including DannyBoy Pfeiffer] and FLOTUS herself are getting in on the act …

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

.. well , after the first of the year , once the GOP takes over Congress , do not be surprised if it actually comes to pass , given Obama ‘ s actions …

.. the House lawsuit may well do some good . It will , however , take a great deal of time . Crane v Napolitano had promise , but it has died , for now , unless it revives on appeal ….

.. the best case , inadvertantely , is the Arizona case over illegals and driver licenses . Az Gov Jan Brewer has taken this on as a crusade , and her successor [likely a Republican] hopefully will follow . This case will be a big issue in the Az Governor ‘ s election , and that will force the issue . This one , ideally could use a conflict with another circuit , but the Supremes may well take it on themselves …

.. if Obama pulls the stunt that I expect on illegals [exec action on legalization] , I am sure that he will pull it . It is just a question of whether of when he does it ….

.. When he does , the reaction is going to be a honey . It might goose Dem turnout a little , but it will enrage Republicans and Independents . I would bet that even a fair number of Dems will be pissed off by the manuveur . Then calls for the ” I ” word will explode , I will bet …

.. if he does , my voice will be one of them ! …

… I think That She may Get Her Wish [Judge Jeanine Pirro and Obama ‘ s Impeachment] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 22nd,2014

.. it will likely come , sometime next year , after the elections .

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..
.. [link] to Judge Jeanine ‘ s Opening Statement ..

.. especially if Obama does something even more colossal stupid than this between now and Election Day . If he does , then it will confine him to the White House , and make it all but impossible for him to campaign for Dems , or even to raise money … the big thing will be when Dems in either chamber start to break . It will come , and come soon ….

…. Wow ! … Great One , Judge Jeanine ! [BenghaziGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 9th,2014

.. i missed this on Saturday night , because I had a 48 hour bug over the weekend . Sorry about that …

.. she really let loose , but under control .

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the show segment …

.. she laid out the case , as if she were making a closing argument to a jury .

.. in this case , the jury is us , the American people . She is calling for no less than Obama ‘ s impeachment and removal . As I said before , Wow !

… So , Lois Lerner has been talking …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,March 13th,2014

.. but to the Department of InJustice , not to Congress .

.. it really makes you wonder what is going on at Main InJustice …

.. god help the DemoCraps if they lose the Senate . Especially if they lose by big numbers . It does not take going from the low 50s or the mid 50s to 67 all that hard once the case is made in public …

… Spot On , Ted Cruz [on Exec Orders] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 31st,2014

.. Senator Cruz was being interviewed by a reporter , and was being very , very frank …

.. [h/t — CNSnews]

.. [link] to the video segment ..

.. this one was done a day before the SOTU , but is just as applicable . POTUS ‘ abuse and misuse of executive orders is waaaay beyond the pale .

.. By the by , it is not the number of them , it is the content of them and their potential and likely illegality . Most any President will test the bounds of the powers of their office , but will know when and where to stop . Nixon obviously did not . Obama is making good ol ‘ Tricky Dick look like a choirboy by comparison , given his actions .

.. Obama has to think and probably is thinking that because he has Dingy Harry [Reid] to cover his “six” , he has nothing to worry about . As long as Dingy Harry is the majority leader of the Senate , maybe … when (not if) Reid goes , then POTUS is in even deeper doo – doo . It will set up the GOP with as many as 53 to 54 votes in the Senate , and the leaning votes of at least 5 other Dems [Nelson,Manchin,Feinstein,King(i),Warner] . That puts the GOP within range of conviction and removal range … Uh Oh !!

… The Virus that Needs to Be Curbed , Axelrod …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 23rd,2013

.. is the demagogic politics of your former boss , Davey – Boy !

.. David Axelrod (or , as I prefer to call him Assholerod) appeared on pMSNBC to comment on U.S. Senator Tom Coburn ‘ s own appearance earlier in the day . It was also a commentary on comments that Coburn had mad at various town hall – style events that Senator Coburn had held back in Oklahoma during the August recess . To say the least , Davey Boy was not amused .

.. [link] Here is the link for the video , and please watch it . No , I am not a fan of Assholerod . Far from it , it shows how bloody arrogant the ObamaCraps and their fellow travelers are about what they have done , and what they are trying to do . Axelrod ‘ s pique was specific to Coburn ‘ s comments about POTUS being perilously close to the borderline of “impeachable offences . ”

.. Coburn is right . Obama has , to be honest , committed several impeachable offences . One of them being the gross abuse of power . That one has occured on several occasions . There are indeed others . And there is more to come on that . That is for sure .
