… The French Right has a Very Good Chance {#winning]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 9th,2016

.. Francois Fillon has become a very Strong candidate for President of france . He persuaded a FOrMEr Pres , Nicholas Sarkozy , to withdraw from the race . The French Right held a primary in order to select their candidate . So far , the Socialists are not doing so . Fillon won and is in a strong position to win the national election  ..

.. The Socialists have a serious problem . Incumbent Pres Francois Hollande is running for re – election .. As many as 3 other candidates , including current pm Maniel ValLS , are going to RUN . which creates a serious problem for Hollande . The Socialists have no primary like the Right does . Ergo , All 4 Socialists will be on the ballot in the first round of the eLEction ..

.. France runs their elections in a similar method to the u.s. state of Louisiana . The 1st round is A ” jungle primary ” , where everybody is on the ballot . If nobdy gets to 50 % , then the top two vote getters advance to a runoff election . Because of this , the Socialists , incl. Hollande , risk not getting thru to the runoff . The French Right [fillon] and the national Front [Maxine Le Pen would make it , where fillon would crush le Pen … x

… What is Mary Landrieu Thinking ?? [#campaign tactic]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 29th,2014

.. Mary Landrieu is in enough trouble . She does not need to buy more .

.. She decided to tee off on State Sen. Elbert Guillory [R-La] , a black Republican , for being an opportunist . Bad move …

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

.. Guillory is one of the most respected political folks in Louisiana . He easily could have , if he had wanted to , have been the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate against Landrieu . He declined , and Bill Cassidy stepped up …

.. she is scared to death of losing any part of the black vote . With Guillory ‘ s opposition , it could very well happen …

… Elbert Guillory is Ready for Prime Time [#US Senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 11th,2014

.. State Senator Guillory is campaigning on behalf of his new party , the Republican Party . he switched parties more than 2 years ago . He has successfully sought re – election from his district [majority minority] as a Republican …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post // video …

.. he has been vetted , and his will be a powerful voice on the campaign trail . Bill Cassidy will find him to be a powerful ally in the campaign debate . I especially believe this will be the case when the Louisiana DemoCraps pull their traditional dirty pool and throw cheap shots at Cassidy …

.. this one will get nasty . It will get nastier as Election Day nears . it will be red – hot molten if , as espected , this one goes to a runoff , and control of the US Senate may well be at stake …

.. let the fun begin …

… Elbert Guillory is Ready for the National Stage [#Louisiana]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 6th,2014

.. but at what level ? …

.. other than the Governor ‘ s office , I have an idea …

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

.. he is leading an up – from – the – bootsraps effort in his own community . So far , he is achieving re – election with solid numbers in his district . His character [even with a few warts] is passing muster . so , what comes next ? …

.. I would think that the U.S. Senate would be a good idea , or even Congress . David Vitter could resign , and Governor Bobby Jindal could appoint Guillory to replace him in the seat to represent Louisiana in the U.S. Senate …

… Dandy Political Commercial , But … [#long]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 3rd,2014

.. Elbert Guillory is terrific ..

.. the only problem with this commercial is its length …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the political commercial …

.. some interest groups with some $$ should buy into this guy , and his campaign . He is fantastic …

.. this commercial should be re – shot , and slightly re – scored …

.. otherwise , it is great …

.. it will dig into the Democratic vote . One sure way to get the Black vote to begin to ” crack ” is to have an officeholder [one of their own] to convince them to try and have them give the GOP a chance . His own story is the best reason why ….

… Unfortunately , I think He ‘ s Right [#Dick Cheney]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 16th,2014

.. and that is really scary ..

.. I believe that it will happen .

.. Washington , D.C. is the obvious target , and for the obvious reasons . New York City is another target , given the concentration of the population . Anywhere else ? …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the Hugh Hewitt show interview …

.. it literally could be almost anywhere in the country . A major port city [Miami , Norfolk , LA , Seattle , SF , etc..] is another real possibility ..

.. the other real possibility is a major city with a military base . That means San Diego , Honolulu , Tampa / St Pete , Norfolk …

.. Tampa / St. Pete ?? .. Yes . Given the size , the location (central Florida) and the dual nature of the military base [MacDill Air Force Base is also the HQ for CentCom (MiddleEast)] …

.. also , a major commercial target , such as the L.O.O.P. [the Louisiana Offshore Oil Platform] and others …

.. even my home area [greater Cleveland] is possible . It is a chokepoint on the Great Lakes . Also , several major East / West rail lines come thru this area from Chicago and the West , also due to geography …

… Interesting Ad [Louisiana US Senate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 18th,2014

.. that the DummyCraps are not going to like , not one bit .

.. Senator Mary Landrieux [D-La] is going to be very popular this election cycle . Her political position has become very , very precarious . She is either even in the polls with her potential (likely Republican) opponents , or she is trailing them . Worse for her , she is well below 50 percent in the polls . That is the ” danger ” zone for any incumbent …

.. Louisiana is an unusual byrd . It has what is known in the elections trade as a ” jungle ” primary . Democraps , Republicans , and Independents , everybody runs in the primary , which is held on the regular Election Day [in November] . If the first place winner gets 50% + 1 vote , then they are elected . If not , then the top 2 finishers , regardless of party , go on to the runoff election (usually held about 5 to 6 weeks later) .

.. this year , Landrieux should make the runoff , but it is not guaranteed . If she is the only Dem , then she will make it . If another Dem with any support runs , then she is in deep doo – doo . She and a republican will move on to the (December) runoff election . Depending on the General Eleection results , control of the Senate could be in the balance .

.. I think that she will go . Ads like this one will be thick as fleas all year long …

… A Superb Moral Speech [Elbert Guillory] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 22nd,2013

.. and , not bad on the politics , either .

.. Up until recently , who had heard of Elbert Guillory ? To be honest , I had not . Not a clue . Then , all of a sudden , BANG ! Hey , what he did took some serious brass . Most officeholders do not have the guts to do it . This guy did . Not only that , he is going to stay in office , and in his current district , and run for re – election . The DemoCraps are going to come after him with both gun barrels blazing , I will guarantee you that . But , State Senator Guillory [R-La] has already been through the toughest parts of the test .

.. I am going to provide for you the text of his speech , courtesy of RealClearPolitics . There is no way to know how long that the video of his speech will be carried in RCP ‘ s archives . A long time , yes , but , I have no idea . However , the text is equally powerful …

.. since WordPress does not support the format that RCP uses , I will provide a link to the video [here] .

Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas) explains why he recently switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party. He discusses the history of the Republican Party, founded as an Abolitionist Movement in 1854. Guillory talks about how the welfare state is only a mechanism for politicians to control the black community.

Hello, my name is Elbert Lee Guillory, and I’m the senator for the twenty-fourth district right here in beautiful Louisiana. Recently I made what many are referring to as a ‘bold decision’ to switch my party affiliation to the Republican Party. I wanted to take a moment to explain why I became a Republican, and also to explain why I don’t think it was a bold decision at all. It is the right decision — not only for me — but for all my brothers and sisters in the black community.

You see, in recent history the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow it’s been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.

Frederick Douglass called Republicans the ‘Party of freedom and progress,’ and the first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln, the author of the Emancipation Proclamation. It was the Republicans in Congress who authored the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments giving former slaves citizenship, voting rights, and due process of law.

The Democrats on the other hand were the Party of Jim Crow. It was Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners. It was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, but it was Democrats in the Senate who filibustered the bill.

You see, at the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing — control. And they disguise this control as charity. Programs such as welfare, food stamps, these programs aren’t designed to lift black Americans out of poverty, they were always intended as a mechanism for politicians to control black the black community.

The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our communities are just as poor as they’ve always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.

Sometimes I wonder if the word freedom is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.

The idea of freedom is complex and it is all-encompassing. It’s the idea that the economy must remain free of government persuasion. It’s the idea that the press must operate without government intrusion. And it’s the idea that the emails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure. It’s the idea that parents must be the decision makers in regards to their children’s education — not some government bureaucrat.

But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness free from government dependence and free from government control. Because to be truly free is to be reliant on no one other than the author of our destiny. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

So my brothers and sisters of the American community, please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the Party of disappointment. So that we may all echo the words of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last.’
