… Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a Radical Activist [#Supreme Court Justice]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 7th,2015

.. How this ultraliberal witch was confirmed was beyond me …

.. She was nominated and confirmed by Bill Clinton [and the USSenate] in the early 1990s . She was , at the time , a lead A.C.L.U. legal counsel . So , there you are …

.. you look at her rulings down through the years , and you wonder ? Why did the GOP vote for her confirmation ? She should have been blocked . She has no business being a Supreme Court justice …

.. [h/t — HuffingtonPost.com]..
.. [link] to the opinion piece …

.. hopefully , God Willing , she will be replaced by a GOP president . Preferrably , by a conservative one . The more conservative , the better … It would be a pleasure to watch the liberal DemoCRaps have a hissyfit over the confirmation of her successor . It would be poetic justice , especially if she had died in office …

.. hopefully , a strong and stout young conservative will begin to restore sanity and reason to the bench …

— update — if Ginsberg [given her age and health] decides to step down , it will make for one hellish confirmation battle . POTUS will want to make his imprint on the Supremes , no matter what party controls the Senate . The problem is if POTUS nominates someone that is not confirmable , even by the DemoCraps . Even they may not be able to tolerate a radical activist …

.. if she does it in 2016 , then there will be no confirmation battle at all . The GOP will simply not confirm anyone , even for an Associate Justice slot on the Supreme Court . If , as I expect , the GOP sweeps through to victory in 2016 , then they get to appoint the replacement …

… Dummies , the Point is Religious Freedom [#accomodation][#religious freedom]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 14th,2015

.. the 7th Circuit is highly libertarian , and the D.C. Circuit has [for now] gone totally loonie – leftie with Dingy Harry Reid ‘ s court – stuffing stunt ..

.. neither one seems to get the point , though . The point is that the filling out of the HHS form is a substantial burden on the religious order ‘ s freedom of religion , dummies ….

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

.. D.C. Appeals Court Judge Janice Rogers – Brown [a future GOP Supreme Court justice nominee] puts it very well in her stinging dissent , exceprted here …

This seems to miss an obvious causal step: the “mandate on insurers” at issue here is not merely a general ACA requirement to provide contraception coverage, but a series of cost-sharing mandates that are not triggered unless the religious groups fill out the form. In a powerful dissent, Judge Janice Rogers Brown explains why this is nonsense:

[T]his case is not “paradoxical” because Plaintiffs object to regulatory requirements the government intended as a religious accommodation. That the government’s expressed intent in enacting the regulations at issue was to allay religious adherents’ concerns about the contraception mandate is not determinative of the ultimate question of whether Plaintiffs were in fact accommodated. Where the government imposes a substantial burden on religious exercise and labels it an “accommodation,” that burden is surely as distressing to adherents as it would be if imposed without such a designation. Therefore, heightened skepticism is not appropriate. We should look at Plaintiffs’ claims as we would any RFRA claim. After all, in the substantial burden analysis, the government’s motivations— no matter how benevolent—are irrelevant; we ask only whether the government’s action operates to place “substantial pressure on an adherent to modify his behavior and to violate his beliefs.”

[…]

Plaintiffs identify at least two acts that the regulations compel them to perform that they believe would violate their religious obligations: (1) “hiring or maintaining a contractual relationship with any company required, authorized, or incentivized to provide contraceptive coverage to beneficiaries enrolled in Plaintiffs’ health plans,” Pet. for Reh’g En Banc at 3; and (2) “filing the self-certification or notification,” id. at 4. Plaintiffs have therefore shown both that they are being compelled to modify their behavior and that, if undertaken, the modification would be a violation of their religious beliefs.

[…]

The panel did not dispute that federal law operates to compel Plaintiffs to maintain a relationship with an issuer or TPA that will provide the contraceptive coverage and to execute the self-certification or alternative notice. Their disagreement with Plaintiffs is about the significance of those compelled acts; in other words, the panel rejected the “adherents’ claim about the religious meaning of the undisputed operation of [] federal regulation[s].”

.. you can count on this one going before the Supremes . SCOTUS will not be able to avoid it . The Court could even be down one justice , though . Why ? ..

.. I think that Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is slowly dying . Especially since she has already escaped pancreatic cancer once [already] , she is living on borrowed time . She wants to do as much damage as she still can while she still lives . However , I am betting [especially with Chuck Grasseley in charge of the Senate Judiciary Cmte] that …. His Lordship will try to push thru a radical leftist as her replacement , and the GOP – controlled Senate will have nothing of it …

… Suge Knight belongs on death row [#for real]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 6th,2015

.. Marion ” Suge ” Knight is the quintecential scumbag . He made to the top of the rap industry on the bodies of others …

.. for many years Knight has [literally] gotten away with murder . If any rapper of note opposed Knight , they were shot at , left unemployed , or , in some cases , left for dead on some sidewalk . Knight was the literal play – for – keeps scumbag . He was willing to commit murder to get his way …

.. just ask gangta rapper Tupac Shakur . Shakur was one of the earliest and the best known , as well as the most talented of rappers . But he opposed Knight , literally . He hated his guts , even though the two of them put together Death Row Records . So , bye – bye Tupac …

.. [h/t — Yahoo.com(news)]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. well now , Knight ‘ s deadly run of ruin appears to be over . he has been indicted on first degree murder charges . to make sure that his fat fannie stays in jail , his bail figure was set at an astonishing $25 million . Well , even Knight can’t raise that kind of scratch . In jail he stays …

.. thankfully , even as loonie as California has become , it still knows how to conduct criminal justice . Knight is on indictment for first degree murder . So , if he is convicted , Knight is very likely to get the death penalty . Maybe Florence , Co awaits [the Federal Super – Max prison] …

… Not One Damn Word [#Israeli Teens]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 1st,2014

.. not one .

.. especially when some words from our Administration would have done some good . All three boys were Israeli , but one [Naftali Frenkel] was an Israeli – American . Ergo , he had dual citizenship , likely from his parents …

.. yet , nothing .

.. and those boys are dead . The ObamaCraps did not even lift a finger . Not one . How sick is that …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the blog news

.. Remember these three souls :

#pray for our boys 0

.. Gilad Shaar ,

.. Naftali Frenkel , and

.. Eyal Yifrach .

.. You can guanrantee that the Israeli government [and PM Netanyahu] will not let this go unpunished . To be honest , they will not listen to the ObamaCraps . Who would ? Who should . Ben Shapiro is right , and dead on . These ObamaCrap bastards have enabled evil , and they are still doing it …

.. How ?

.. by cautioning Israel to ” exercise restraint . ” That is ObamaCrap code for ” do nothing at all . ” Wanna bet Bibi & company ignores that advice …. Hamas is about to get taught a hard lesson , the Israeli way , not the ObamaCrap way …

… The Point is [#the justice system]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 24th,2014

.. is that the system worked ..

.. and , in some ways , it did not .

.. this is regarding the 20th ” anniversary ” of the OJ Ford Bronco car chase that marked the beginning of the entire O.J. – related sage …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the View segment ..

.. the big problem with the OJ saga is that both the prosecution and the defense played out the saga in the media in a massive P.R. war . Instead , the judge should have kept a tight reign on everyone , and kept the trial in the courtroom , not in the corridors , or in the Court of Public Opinion …

.. otherwise , the system worked . O.J. did get off , but he proved himself a stupid criminal by committing armed robbery in Las Vegas , Nevada , years later . So , he is finally in jail , but not for murder . If he had been found guilty , he may well have been executed . He deserved it , but ….

… Actually , Dick , I do not Think So [#illegal kids]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,June 13th,2014

.. I know that POTUS is doing this deliberately . Who would expect anything less from this immoral ass ? …

.. why do I think Dick Morris is wrong (for once) …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..

.. [link] to the opinion piece …

.. [-] Crane v Napolitano — The ObamaCraps have to make a dangerous decision . They have lost at the trial court level . They have now lost at the appeals level . That last one is schnooze … Do they appeal it to the US Supreme Court , espc with all of the press attention that it will get ? It will likely be upheld …

.. [-] what happens when it does — does POTUS defy the Supremes . Is he that crazy ? to be honest , Obama just might do it …

.. [-] Latinos will see through his cynical antics — why ? when kids are hurt , sick , and are dying . Especially with kids that die in US custody , due to DACA …

.. [-] Latinos may let the Dems get away with a lot , but not endangering kids ‘ lives in a cynical ploy to win votes …

.. it will not be easy . But , I think it will happen …

… Politicized Justice is …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 23rd,2014

.. no justice at all .

.. it harms our Constitution , our country , and our citizens .

.. when people abuse the organs of government for their own ends , and they tamper with the rights and freedoms of others .

.. Government prosecutors do have the right to set priorities to maximize the use of scarce resources . What they do not have the right to do is the refusal to enforce the body of law as a whole . Especially when and where prosecution for misconduct is called for .

.. These groups formed and applied for tax – exempt status . They thus created a IRS tax file . These files are not to be misused or abused , especially for misuse for political purposes . I am a C.P.A. , albeit on the bench . I have practiced before the service , and misuse of these files is a felony .

.. It is clear that these files have been misused . Investigation is called for , and the appointment of a Special Prosecutor or an Independent Counsel is called for ..

.. here is another opinion , from Judge Jeanine Pirro on her ” Opening Statement ” on her show ” Justice w. ” earlier this month ….

… the House from Hell has been torn Down …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 7th,2013

.. i am referring to the house on Seymour Avenue in Cleveland , Ohio , where those 3 young women were held captive .

.. As a part of the plea bargain , Ariel Castro was required to deed over his house (the captive house) to Cuyahoga County [the Ohio county where Cleveland is located ] as a part of his criminal settlement . The house and land on which it sits were deeded over to the County Land Bank .

.. The County Land Bank can use this land in sale or trade for other land , and assemble tracts of land for redevelopment . It could be for retail , commercial , industrial , or residential . It is also environnmentally treated (remediated) , so that the land is commerically viable again . The specific land on Seymour Avenue will , I bet , be turned into a small public mini – park , where children can play , and bring joy once more to the area .

… Oprah , You Should Know Better ! [Emmett Till] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 5th,2013

.. Many folks have waded into the controversy over George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin . Until today , Oprah Winfrey had not been one of them .

.. Unfortunately , she stuck her foot in her mouth , BIG time . She compared Martin to a young unfortunate and innocent black

Oprah Winfrey at her 50th birthday party at Ho...

teenager , Emmitt Till . Till , for those who do not know was from Chicago . He had traveled to visit family in Mississippi in the Summer of 1955 . He did (for then) the not such a good ideal act of giving what is known as a “wolf whistle” at a white woman .
Till was murdered for what he did . Nothing else .

.. It gets worse . The local white men were not tried for years . Even though many folks knew who had done the deed . When they were , they were found not guilty . Till was an innocent , having committed a transgression (for the time) for which he was unaware of .

.. Justice was eventually done . As it was for Trayvon Martin . Martin was , though , a street punk , who used drugs , who stole jewelry , and benefited from the scandalous acts of many who failed to properly and evenly enforce the law in a non – partial manner . If they had , it is fairly likely that Trayvon Martin would still be alive , today .

.. Comparing an innocent (Emmett Till) to a street punk (Trayvon Martin) is the height of outrageous , Oprah . You are a learned , experienced , and educated , and accomplished woman . You should have gosh darned well known better .

… Judge Nelson , it is None of your Business …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 10th,2013

.. george zimmerman is entitled to the presumption of innocence . As well as all of his constitutional rights . He is also entitled to the impartial administration of justice . Which , to be honest  , in this case , he has not received from the state of Florida and the county of Sanford .

.. He had a media war mounted against him  , from the beginning . It took from him , or tried to , rob him of the ability to defend himself , his reputation , and the ability to mount a defence of his choosing .

.. The investigation was another issue . The Sanford City Police Department thoroughly investigated the case , and the County Prosecutor also reviewed the case . The County Prosecutor dismissed the case , citing a finding of self – defence . Then ,  the p.r. war did its damage , and the state of Florida stepped in . The state appointed a special prosecutor , who proferred the charges that George Zimmerman is facing now .

 .. On Wednesday, Judge Debra Nelson, who is presiding over the trial of George Zimmerman, repeatedly asked Zimmerman whether he would be testifying, over the objections of his attorneys. Nelson told Zimmerman that he had the “absolute right to remain silent” and then asked him whether he wanted to testify. Don West, Zimmerman’s attorney, objected; Nelson overruled him and said, “The court is entitled to inquire if Mr. Zimmerman’s determination as to whether or not he wants to testify.”

.. The judge should not be harassing , or even asking the defending about whether he or she  is invoking his or her rights . The presumption of innocence , plus the 5th Amendment , and  other rights , should allay those fears . The defendant (Zimmerman) is innocent , until proven guilty (beyond a reasonable doubt) , and does not have to testify . He / she also should not , or does not , have to speak up in court about those rights . That person is also entitled to that presumption as well in jury deliberations .

.. Yet , Judge Nelson persisted . She asked Zimmerman how much time he wanted to figure out if he wanted to testify, to which West objected. Nelson then said, irritated, “Your objection is overruled!” Mark O’Mara, another of the defense attorneys whispered, “What is going on ? ”

.. Such exchanges are very unusual in criminal trials. Judges rarely confront possible witnesses or defendants on whether they will testify over the objections of attorneys.

.. A few minutes later, Judge Nelson continued to ask Zimmerman about whether he would testify. She gave him a few minutes to consider. Then she returned to Zimmerman and asked him whether he would testify; he said he would not. She then repeatedly asked whether it was his decision not to testify in the case, rather than the decision of his attorneys.

.. The defense has rested. After 18 witnesses over the course of the last week, the defense closed its case, then motioned for dismissal; that motion was denied. Prosecutors are calling two rebuttal witnesses, the first of whom, Adam Pollock, Zimmerman’s trainer, already testified for the defense. Both sides are currently drafting jury instructions. Presumably, the case will be sent to the jury tomorrow, after the prosecution’s final rebuttal witness.
