… Real Good Ad : The Fight Against the Iran Deal [#hardball]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 13th,2015

.. people are operating with brass knuckles in pursuing each and every vote for both the bill and the veto override . A vote on the bill is one thing : the veto override is something else …

.. you have to see this one … it will put pressure on both Blue State Dems and Red State Dems alike …

.. it needs to be hard hitting , considering the Chicago Ways that the ObamaCraps will pull to preserve this deal …

… The Pro – Lifers Win a Big One [#US Supreme Court]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 6th,2014

.. and this is my neck of the woods , sort of …

.. this is a SCOTUS case from downstate Ohio . The Susan B. Anthony List ( a well – known pro – life group) wanted to challenge the honesty and veracity of a Congressional candidate [actually a sitting DemoCrap congresscritter] .. Well , the DemoCrap did not like it one bit . He challenged it in front of a body called the Ohio Elections Commission . The O.E.C. found that the ad was supposedly ” false , ” and fined the List a small amount of money . The case though was dropped when the DemoCrap lost his re – election big …

.. [link] to the blog news & court opinion …

.. Well , the Susan B. Anthony List did not forget . They sued in federal court , challenging the constitutionality of the Ohio statute . The US Supreme Court ruled today , unaminously , that the action of the O.E.C. was unconstitutional …

.. Now , the List can continue in the federal court . What they may want to do is to challenge the constitutionality of the basic statute , now that they have won the underlying original case …

… Popped ! [Terri Lyn Land for Senate mocks her opponent]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 13th,2014

.. meet the next Senator from the Great State of Michigan ..

.. and her name is Terri Lyn Land ..

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..
.. [link] to the campaign ad ..

.. Land is leading her opponent is fundraising , and is leading in the polls , with a lead that is just inside the margin of error . She has been elected Michigan ‘ s Secretary of State (statewide) twice , both times by large margins …

.. it will not be a cakewalk , not by any means . She will also have to deal with DemoCrap slime , especially with campaign visits by POTUS and VPOTUS , and intervention by Congresscritter John Dingell , who is finally retiring from Congress …

… Joni Ernst Strikes Again [GOP — Iowa]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. Joni Ernst is a strong GOP candidate for the open US Senate seat in Iowa . She had been little known until a hog – castrating ad of hers helped to make her a household name . Now , her name recognition has soared …

.. before , joni was a part of the pack . Now , she has taken a solid lead in the primary race , with the GOP Senate primary itself still yet to come ..

.. I hope that you will enjoy the ad as much as I did ….

… Great Ad [AFP ad (Louisiana Senate)] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 7th,2014

.. the issue ads that have been running in this campaign so far have been great . The DemoCraps have no answer for them , and it has the DemoCrap Campaign Committee and other PACs back on their heels . Even the D.N.C. does not know what to do …

.. this ad is a great example : ..

.. [h/t — LonelyConservative]..
.. [link] to the campaign commercial …

.. the issue ads can cause headaches , but this year (so far) they have been a big help . These folks have helped carry the political war to the other side , while allowing the GOP to settle things with a good bit of dignity . Ergo , when the GOP comes out of the primary season , the winning candidate will be in a better position to take the offensive against their DemoCrap opponent , and their campaign $$ will stretch a lot further …

… What is Sauce for the Goose [Colorado Senate campaign ad]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 2nd,2014

.. is sauce for the gander ..

.. now that these DemoCrap activists like George Soros (who is well known) , and now Tom Steyer (who is now getting the media anal exam) are being publically identified and ventilated , the DemoCrap candidates who are supported by them are getting a taste of their own medicine . Dingy Harry has his Koch Brothers fixation ; now it is the Dems ‘ turn to get roasted …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the campaign ad ..

.. this one is a dandy . it is only an interest group ad , so it allows the likely Republican nominee , Congressman Cory Gardiner , to keep above the fray . These days , political candidates have to ” ride the wave ” of their political message , instead of controlling the message themselves . If they can generate substantial free media , along with their own ads , well then …

.. this is only the beginning . Given his ecosocialism and criminal gross hypocricy , Mark Udall is going to be tarred with both Soros and Steyer all campaign long . He has nothing to complain about …

… Sick [Death Wishes on a Public Person]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 16th,2014

.. in this case , her name is Julie Boonstra …

.. Julie who ? …

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

.. Julie Boonstra is the Michigan woman who has gotten involved in the Americans for Prosperity campaign against a US Senate candidate in her home state . She got involved because ObamaCrapCare turned her health insurance coverage and health care status upside down and inside out .

.. besides fighting for her life , what could she do : fight back …. so , she did …. and how . It seems that her ads have been quite effective , as GOP Senate candidate Terri Lyn Land has taken a nearly 10.0% lead in the polls against her probably DemoCrap oppoonent . Especially since neither Land nor Democrap Gary Peters [who is a Congresscritter] have been advertising all that much on T.V. …

.. so what happens , the interest groups have taken over , and boy , have they driven the debate and had an impact . Nicely done …

… The ” Intolerant ” Left …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 15th,2014

.. oh , yeah , right …

.. just ask Julie Boonstra ..

.. Julie who ? …

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

.. Julie Boonstra is the brave Michigan woman , the one who is currently fighting cancer . She had her health insurance turned upside – down by ObamaCrapCare , and decided to fight back . She decided to participate in an Americans  for Prosperity issue ad campaign in her home state of Michigan against U.S. Senate candidate [and current Congresscritter] Gary Peters . Peters is one who naturally voted for ObamaCrapCare , and now wants a promotion .

.. So , what is the reaction of the ” Intolerant ” Left ? Hate mail and death threats , in general . Death wishes , in particular . How sick is that ??

.. May God Bless You Julie Boonstra , and keep you at peace in your fight …

… More on the Mozilla Boycott …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 10th,2014

.. how did people find out about the campaign contribution ?

.. these days , disclosure is very public , and is very rapid . Once a campaign [issue or candidate] discloses the contribution to the relevant body [state or federal] , it is publshed on the Internet . Also , other sites specialize in organizing the data [federally ,  from the Federal Elections Commission] , so , these days , it comes out pretty darned quick ….

.. [h/t — HotAir]..

.. [link] to the article / news report …

.. also , the problem is these days , is what do people do with that information . That is the big problem . What has happened with Mozilla and Brendan Eich is symbolic of what can happen these days … but mostly at the state level . It has not spread to the federal level , at least openly , not as of yet . it does happen , but it is spoaradic ….

.. People have to be responsible with the disclosure of this kind of information , and not misuse it … otherwise , threshhold could change , or the disclosure could end up going away ….

… Mozilla Warfare …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 8th,2014

.. since when does a commitment to diversity and inclusiveness give people the right to enforce a ” litmus test ” for professional inclusion at an employer ? …

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..

.. [link] and [link2] to Maggie Gallagher ‘ s columns on the subject …

..  people have a right to their private lives and their personal freedoms . That includes the right and reason to associate with both people and causes with whom they choose to support … both with their time , as well as with their money . People also have a right to keep that private life separate from their professional life , and to not be intimidated by others …

.. It is also not the right of others not to intimidate people who choose to exercise such freedoms by abuse of the disclosure requirements of campaign contribution laws to act to intimidate others . Such misuse of the law is gross and outrageous …

… Another Take on Florida 13 and the GOP …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 21st,2014

.. this one is from the Weekly Standard and Michael Warren .

.. David Jolly was , to him , somewhat lucky . Alex Sink was indeed a very good candidate . Also , she did not have direct voting ties to ObamaCrapCare , by not being a voting member of the House . Also , Jolly ‘ s campaign certainly could have been better .

.. What really helped Jolly and sink Sink [pun intented] was the ad wars in between the interest groups . The folks in Tampa / Saint Pete (especially on TV) are probably very thankful that the election circus has left town . All of that ” noise pollution ” [as I like to call it] can drive one nuts . Still , the pro – Jolly issue ads were very very effective in turning the race …

.. Ads such as this one … [link] to the issue ad , and this one [link] to the issue ad … had to helped Jolly redefine the race and Sink quite a bit …

… Julie Boonstra counterattacks …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 27th,2014

.. she is the Michigan resident and cancer patient who is dealing with the crippling effects of ObamaCrapCare on her health insurance policy , her overall health care , and

.. she became famous as the result of issue ads run by Americans for Prosperity / Michigan . They intervened in the open seat US Senate race in Michigan , the one being vacated by Carl Levin . She also became famous because the subject of the issue ad , Representative Gary Peters [D-Mi] has attacked her with a cheap shot .

.. Peters wants to have control of his campaign message . Who wouldn’t . In this day and age , you have to deal with interest groups , and even private individuals running political ads . Technically , anyone with money can do so . Peters is , however , playing foul , by abusing his office .

.. Peters ‘ Senate campaign has been going around to various TV stations that broadcast into Michigan . That would include , in theory , Ohio , Northern Indiana , and Chicagoland , in addition to Michigan proper . The campaign has been grossly abusing the powers of his office by threatening their broadcast licences , among other offences , for airing the A.F.P. ads . Vulgar , huh ?

.. Yea , it is . She is fighting back , thankfully . This morning [Monday 02/24/2014] , she appeared on ” Fox and Friends ” for an interview . I heartily recommend it …
