… the ObamaCraps have been Grossly Abusing the F.O.I.A. System [#”White House equities]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 11th,2016

.. yea , you heard it right ..

.. those ” equities ” come from a memo that came from the ObamaCrap White House in April of 2009 . They have inserted what are called ” White House equities ” into the FOIA request process . The question is is whether what they have done is legal or not ? …

.. to be honest , NO !! ..

.. the White House has a right to beef about FOIA request that are made to the White House itself . Making those requests of the Agencies of the Executive Branch is one thing . Making them of the White House itself is something else . So , at that point , then they can object …

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. but with ” White House equities ” involving itself in the actions at the Agencies ? Un – uh . Those FOIA requests are to be evaluated at the agency itself , not at the White House . It was not the way the FOIA request system was intended to work . It was also not the way that it was put together to operate …

.. so , somebody with a FOIA request should challenge this , and pursue this in court . The judgement of a federal district court judge should interject an interesting element into this now – bastardized process ..

.. Officer Michael Brelo was found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of two Greater Clevelanders the other day ..

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

.. this case resulted from a police chase that started in downtown Cleveland . Two perpetrators took off in their car , and one hell of a lot of cops [more than a dozen] took off after them . They were chased eastward , towards the suburbs of East Cleveland and Euclid , and they were finally stopped by stop sticks …

.. what happened next is what has caused such an uproar . The police officers opened fire on the couple ,for whatever reasons I do not know . That couple was unarmed . Officer Brelo jumped up on the couple ‘ s car , and continued to fire at them . Both of them [the couple] died as a result of the altercation …

.. the Center for Medical Progress has been doing great work . Their investigative journalism has been fantastic . Boy , oh boy , have the Forces of Death been running scared ..

.. so their allies [the National Abortion Federation] are running scared as well . They then decided to take action against the C.M.P. ..

.. they went to court , and accessed a toady judge . That judge issued a T.R.O. against the C.M.P. ..

.. at least [for now] it is only a T.R.O. . What happens next is anybody ‘ s guess ?? ..

… Does Dingy Harry Have a Death Wish (Again ?!?!?) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 10th,2013

.. Well , it is july , and the United States Senate has returned to session . There are judicial nominations that are pending before the body . Even more so , there are Executive Nominations pending before the body . And , Dingy Harry Reid is presented with a quandry ?

.. for the United States Senate to function , there must be collegiality . Comity and civility would also be helpful . An all – out pissing match power struggle in the body would not be a great idea . Yet , that is what could well happen , say , likely will happen if Dingy Harry sets off the so – called ” nuclear option . ”

.. I call it “so – called , ” because the rules of the body are very specific . It takes a 2/3rd majority of all senators (or , 67 senators) to change what are the Standing Rules of the Senate . Reid wants to “nuke” it , and effect a change in the rules with only 51 votes , or , if need be , 50+VPOTUS . If he does , it will make things right now look like a garden party , by comparison .

.. It will be next to impossible to get anything done , at all .

.. The proximate cause is nominations to federal positions. Republicans have approved more than 1,500 of Obama’s nominees , but are holding up a handful of the most controversial ones , and for good reason . There have been several radical and out-of-line ones , such as nominees to the National Labor Relations Board and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The NLRB under Obama has become a radical tool in the firm grip of Big Labor. The CFPB is a new creature spawned in the ill-advised Dodd-Frank legislation. The nation is just fine without either one operating at full capacity.

.. The actual cause is that the Democrats want one-party rule by fiat . Obama has tested the waters on that front several times, both by issuing recess appointments when Congress was not even in recess, and most recently by declaring that ObamaCare’s employer mandate will not be enforced when the law he signed requires it, on January 1, 2014. That move was entirely political, to avoid the pain that enforcement would inflict during the 2014 mid-term elections. It was also flagrantly illegal, as the language of the law leaves no room for this maneuver. The Republican-controlled House is investigating, but of course the Democrat-controlled Senate doesn’t care. Congress in control of either party once defended its institutional powers, but under Reid, the Senate puts the Democratic Party’s prerogatives above all.

… Thanks , Y ‘ All … [on George Zimmerman]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 9th,2013

… to the conservative media , Ace of Spades , the Jawa Report , and , of course , the Other McCain ..

.. without your efforts , I believe George Zimmerman would have been railroaded into Florida State Prison . He would have been convicted on 2nd degree murder charges .

.. Given where the case stands , right now , no way in hell … manslaughter , possible , but not likely … the way the case has been presented , it is likely , I think , that he will be found not guilty of the lesser – included offence of manslaughter , as well …
