… Do those Gun Grabbers ever Learn [#abuse of power][#Social Security payee][#guns]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 5th,2017

.. you would figure that the gun grabbers in the ObamaCrap Administration would learn . They keep finding novel manuveurs in the law in order to further their agenda to take guns away from law – abiding Americans ..

.. but this ? this is really sick ..

.. People make use of representative payees in order to protect themselves when they are older . It does not entitle the government to go on a gun – grabbing expedition just because they have aradical agenda that they want to enact . If they have the support in Congress , then pass a law . If they do not , then quit playing around with people ‘ s constitutional rights …

.. the Bill of Rights was designed [as a group] to protect the rights of the individual . In the case of the 9th and the 10th Amendments , it does so through their home states . The 2nd Amendment is itself an individual right . It was designed and written to protect an individual ‘ s right to own [keep] and utilize and possess [bear] arms …

.. so , keep your damn hands off of our damn firearms !! …

… The E.P.A. royally screwed Up [#federal court][#foia lawsuit]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 10th,2016

.. boy , oh boy , did they ever .

.. the other day , Federal District judge Royce D. Lamberth bawled out the E.P.A. and its senior management . While he did not severely sanction the E.P.A. [at least , not yet] , he severely chastised the Agency and several senior officials . They were called on the carpet for gross political bias and bigotry , and were legally and financially sanctioned ..

.. the punitive sanctions are being held out as a meat – cleaver over the head of the Agency , in order to get its attention . While this judge has the case , the E.P.A. has no choice but to cough up the requested information . The current F.O.I.A. precedent also acts to hammer them into compliance , and promptly …

.. now , the ball is in the EPA ‘ s court , so to speak . How will they respond . Dawdling is not an option , because if they do , the Judge will be able to seize effective control of the E.P.A. . dOING so would also block any sue – and – settle antics without Lamberth knowing about it …

… Voter I.D. is Moving in Ohio [#voter fraud]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 30th,2016

.. unfortunately , it will not be in time for this fall ‘ s elections …

.. the state legislature is taking up another election reform bill . Especially since the GOP will still be in control , and Jon Husted [GOP SecState] will likely be the chief elections officer , the legislature does not have to double – time the issue …

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

.. the question will likely brought up again in the new edition of the legislature that will take office in January . Kasich will still be around [having been easily re – elected], so getting the bill thru will not be a problem . Setting it up for the early voting period will get interesting , though , to see how they require documentation to be submitted …

.. it will hit me . I have a driver ‘ s license , a state i.d. , and a US passport . It is plenty enough documentation for what will be required …

— [update]– hopefully , it will move in the post – election special session . it is possible , but it is not likely ….

.. a much more likely possibility is that the new legislature will take it up . Amazingly enough , the drubbing that the DemoCraps took at the polls on November 4th , 2014 had the predictable result — the Dems lost even more seats in the legislature , if that were possible . now the Dems are down to only 34 Dems in the State House , and 9 in the State Senate …

.. what that will allow is a provision of the Ohio Constitution , one that allows the Legislature to adopt a bill with a 3/5ths majority . It is usually done to adopt and pass a bill as an emergency [in a big hurry] . In this case , it is not needed . This provision is used to block any possible initiative or referendum that could possibly be mounted by interest groups to try to repeal the bill .  With a 3/5ths vote , un – uh … that move is not allowed …

.. expect a court fight (again) over this one . The NAALCP and the ACLU will go hyper – spastic over it . Knowing the ObamaCraps are still around , the Holder Department of InJustice will probably stick its nose in on their behalf …

.. someone should remind them … by a solid [7 to 2] precedent in Indiana [under the Voting Rights Act] , Voter ID has been found kopasetic by the US Supreme Court , so , enough already …

… On This , This Might Surprise You [#Ohio][#17-year-olds voting in primary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 14th,2016

.. i am a damn strong srout and stubborn conservative ..

.. but in this instance , I agree with the kids …. and with Bernie Sanders …

.. the beef is this . the 17 year olds want to vote . Normally , they do not get to do so . But , if they turn 18 before the general election , then , under Ohio law , they do get to vote [if they are registered] , but on candidates only . No voting in the primary on issues ; that is a big no – no .

.. Well , it seems that earlier this year Ohio Secretary of State [Chief Elections Officer] Jon Husted changed his interpretation of the law . Since the young people were electing delegates to nominate a POTUS nominee , then they could not vote at all . Boy , was Husted wrong ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Husted ‘ s interpretation is in clear contravention to decades of Ohio law , and Ohio State Supreme Court precedent . Whoops ..

.. a state judge slapped him down , and rightfully . Well , originally , Husted was going to appeal . He has changed his mind ..

.. I am thankfull that he has done so . His judgement on the law was badly mistaken . It was not the law when I first registered to vote 34 years ago . If you were 17 , but turned 18 before the general election , they then could vote in the primary [but not on issues ] . It still is …

… If These Arguments are any Indication [#SCOTUS][#Friedrichs v CTA]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 17th,2016

.. then the public sector unions throughout the country are in big trouble .

.. you would expect that Alito , Thomas , & Roberts would be solid votes to uphold Friedrichs are the likelies , Justices Kennedy and Scalia . I would also count among the possibles one of the liberals , Justice Steven Breyer ..

.. from the arguments , Scalia will be a strong vote to uphold . He may well even get the majority opinion to write , that is if the Chief Justice [Roberts] does not do so himself ..

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

… then there is Tony Kennedy . He literally is SCOTUS ‘ resident ” weather vane , ” that is the swing vote in may of the cases . he may well be a swing vote , but he is still nominally a conservative . One should try to remember that . So , in this case , he is a Yes vote ..

.. in arguments , Breyer was very leery about overriding the current precedent [Abood v Detroit Bd of Ed] . It does not mean that he will not do so . In recent cases , such as Knox v C.T.A , Breyer voted with the conservatives . It is possible , especially if he is given the majority opinion to write , that Breyer will do so again …

… Earth to the DemoCraps [#precedent]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 21st,2015

.. are you really sure that you want this ?? …

.. you are playing with fire …

.. POTUS is playing a very dangerous game . If [when] the GOP takes His Lordship to court over his gross abuse of power [over immigration] , it is setting up something that nobody may want . You may not want to do what you are planning , because someone else can eventually use the same maneuver as a precedent for something else against you …

… It tells You how Dangerous things are Getting [#His Lordship]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 8th,2014

.. Jonathan Turley was on ” Hannity ” the other night . His comments were striking , but not all that shocking …

.. [h/t — Mediaite]..
.. [link] to the video footage ..

.. What Prof. Turley said is scary . Especially with the LameStreamMedia behaving like a bunch of lapdogs , and doing absolutely nothing to investigate this guy and hold his feet to the fire …

.. May God in Heaven help Us All …
