… Why are the Allied Nations reluctant ?? [#coalition]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 28th,2016

.. why should they be ?? …

.. they do not trust Obama . POTUS has not shown himself to be courageous , to be worthy of trust , of faith …

.. George W. Bush and other Presidents , they trusted , to one extent or another . Some they trusted more , some less …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]…
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. this President is someone that they do not trust . POTUS has drawn a so – called ” red line , ” and has not backed it up . Other nations [friend and foe alike] have seen the result , and are acting accordingly …

.. they even see the ambivalence here in the U.S. among high officials in Obama ‘ s own administration . You would figure that since the Boss made the decision , the minions would march to the same tune . Not So …. other countries see that lack of resolve and discipline , and realize that Obama ‘ s own plan is a half – ass piece of crap ….

.. just imagine POTUS trying to get a AUMF or a war declaration through Congress …. good luck . I doubt that one will be brought up in this Congress , at least until the ” Lame Duck ” session ….

… the Trump Transition [#AG][#Jeff Sessions]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 26th,2016

.. Jeff Sessions has had a long career in public service , including 20 years in the U.S. Senate , a term as Alabama ‘ s AG , and a tour as the U.S. Attorney for Alabama . Who can quibble with that ?? …

.. He is a solid law – and – order conservative . He is a public official who is one who is not afraid to fight for what he believes in ….

.. Session ‘ s choice signals sends a loud a clear signal to the radical left . Get your resumes in order , because your days of pollution the Department of Justice are over with …

… In An I.S.I.L. – related Speech [#gun control]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 31st,2016

.. POTUS brings in the subject of gun control ?? ..

.. I know he is arrogant , but is he crazy . Can’t he count the number of Representatives and Senators , for God ‘ s sake ? This is nuts ..

.. this is a speech that is regarding I.S.I.L. and the task that is at hand . Keep anything else that does not belong there out of the speech . That extraneous crap really messes up the message ,and diverts the audience from the target of the speech ….

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics.com/video]..
.. [link] to the speech] ..

.. that target is I.S.I.L. . It is not gun control …

… It is a Great Offense [#Moral Equivalence][#jihadis][#us citizen]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 26th,2016

.. I am not a gun owner . I have not felt the need to buy a gun . At least not as of yet ..

.. if and when I choose to do so , I will be exercising my constitutional rights , as granted to me [via God] under the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights [to the U.S. Constitution] . It will be my decision , and my decision alone . It will be no one else ‘ s to make , or to interfere ..

.. when POTUS made his recent speech [vis-à-vis I.S.I.L.] , he included a good chunk of it regarding gun control . As if it would have made any difference in stopping a committed jihadi [a bad guy] from getting the weapon that they wanted ..

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics.com/video]..
.. [link] to the video of the speech …

.. what really offended me was the moral equivalence that my President made between me , a common U.S. citizen , and a jihadi . That is grotesquely outrageous !!

… Big Blunder in South Carolina [#Governor ‘ s Race]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 31st,2014

.. not that this guy had much of a chance this time around …

.. DemoCrap nominee Vince Shaheen [no relation to Jeanne Shaheen in NH] was shooting off his mouth at a campaign rally the other day , and boy , did he ever commit a blunder …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // video footage …

.. he popped off , ” that we will escort the whore out the door … ” . He was referring to his opponent , SC Governor Nikki Haley ….

.. what could he have been thinking ?! what a knucklehead !! …..

… 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 …

… Joni surges Ahead [#IA US Senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 4th,2014

.. Go , Joni , Go !! …

.. you bet I want Joni Ernst to win . She has run a fabulous campaign campaign . She has received some fairly lucky breaks , which always helps . Also , Terry Branstad running [likely a success] for re-election is a very huge help for her campaign …

.. [h/t — McClatchyDC.com]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. having a royal screw – up for an opponent is even better . He opponent , Iowa congresscritter Bruce Braley has run a disaster for a campaign . Even worse , he has made several ill – timed mega – gaffes at several critical points in the campaign …

.. now , Joni leads bruce 44% to 38% , with an independent [left – leaning] with 6% , and 12% undecided . That is good . Braley is an incumbent , so the pressure is on him , not her . Also , with the left – leaner in the race , it hurts Braley …

.. so , Joni only needs to get to 48% (or better) to get clear of Braley for good . There is still work to do , though , and the debate season is now upon us …

… The Adult in the Room [#ObamaCraps , #Panetta] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 28th,2014

.. say what you will about Leon Panetta .

.. he is no wuss . Panetta served for years in the House of Representatives . He was Budget Chairman for several years . Then , after he left the House and went to the private sector , Wilhelm der Fibmeister [Bill Clinton] recruited him to become his Chief of Staff for a few years ….

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the commentary ..

.. Eventually , Panetta returned to the private sector before he was recruited to return to Washington . The ObamaCraps wanted and needed an old Washington hand to be ” an Adult in the Room . ” They did not just want ” Uncle Joe ” Biden around , given his malapropisms . So , they got Panetta , first at CIA , then at the Defense Department …

.. that makes this criticsm of His Lordship all the more stinging . Say what you will about the ObamaCraps ; I can say a lot . They have had very few of their people speaking ” out of school . ” Panetta ‘ s blast of the Bergdahl Affair has to hurt , and hurt a great deal …

TribLive reports on Wednesday’s comments made by the former Obama Administration official:
“I said, ‘Wait, I have an obligation under the law,’” Panetta said during a lunchtime address at the Hart Energy Developing Unconventionals DUG East conference at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown. “If I send prisoners from Guantanamo, they have to guarantee they don’t go back to the battlefield. I had serious concerns.”

He said talks fell apart because the Taliban “asked for five top guys.” He did not say when during his 2011-13 tenure in the Pentagon that discussions took place.

“I just assumed it was never going to happen,” Panetta said.

.. [update] Panetta still needs to be heard from on many things . Especially Benghazi . There would not have been orders for any standdown of forces where people inmortal danger are concerned without consultation of the SecDef and / or the ChairJCS . Those two will  be able to tell you  a lot , and what they cannot say , or do  not know will tell you a lot , or will speak volumes …

… She is Going to Regret This [#political megagaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 1st,2014

.. in politics , like blogging , you always have to be careful what you say . Once it is on the public record , especially these days , it is there forever . You can remove a post or a tweet , but it is still ” out there …”

.. the same comes to interviews . You have to be very careful with your words , otherwise …

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

.. Miz Hillary really committed a colossal boner , a megagaffe . When you screw up like this , people will question your judgement . These goofs are the material award – winning political commercials are made of …

… Thad Cochran is a ” Dead Man Walking ” [#politics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 17th,2014

.. especially after the upset special in VA 7 , where House Majority Leader Eric Cantor made the kind of political history that no one wants to make …

.. Cochran faces businessman and politician Chris McDaniel in a June 24th runoff for the GOP nomination for the US Senate from Mississippi . The eventual nominee will be the very heavy favourite in the general election on November 5th , as Mississippi is as ” Red ” as it gets . Yes , it is that much …

.. McDaniel has a good chunk of momentum already , by finishing first in the primary . He just missed winning the nomination outright by about 1,500 votes or so . So , he is going in the right direction . Cochran is an old hand , having served 6 terms in the US Senate . He is seeking his seventh ….

.. I believe that Cochran will not get it . Since both folks know their relative strengths (and weaknesses) , both can make moves , as well as countermoves , for the runoff . Cochran is the known quantity . McDaniel is the fresh face …

.. McDaniel in the runoff …

… Now He is Out [#JayBoy Carney]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 4th,2014

.. well , he finally gave up the ghost . Evidently , this one has been coming (under the radar) for some time …

.. considering his grave loss of credibility , he needed to go . JayBoy had lost his effectiveness and usefulness to the administration . Staying any longer would have made no sense ..

.. at least now , his deputy (and successor) Josh Earnest can make a fresh start . Earnest has almost the perfect name for the job , that is for sure . He almost has the ideal temperament , too . JoshBoy is a lot less arrogant than Carney is , by far . JayBoy has always been an arrogant ass when in the media , and as Press Secretary , he has gotten a great deal worse . At least now , he can hit the meat and potatoes circuit and make the bucks …

.. considering what may be coming down the road , JoshBoy Earnest is going to need all of the help that he can get …

… What Terrible Optics …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 10th,2014

.. many things that you can do when there is a foreign policy crisis . Knuckling down and doing your job is a good  place to start . There are others …

.. but  a vacation ? Even a short one ..both the President and the Vice President ? Are you kidding me ?

..  you have it right . POTUS and VPOTUS are both going on short vacations . They are doing it in the middle of the crisis involvinG  Ukraine , Crimea , and Russia . POTUS is going to Florida ; VPOTUS is going to the U.S. Virgin Islands .

.. Are you guys nuts , or what . The  last  thing  that  youguys should be doing  right now is  going on a vacation in the middle of a crisis …

… Alex Sink must Have a Death Wish …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 7th,2014

.. boy , what a stupid comment to make .

.. Alexandra Sink is a congressional candidate . You might guess that she is a DemoCrap . She is running in a special election [March 11th , 2014] for the seat of the late congresscritter C.W. ” Bill ” Young . Young was a moderate Republican (in other words , a R.I.N.O.) who made this district his home for all of his life .

.. Bill Young died late last year . Governor Rick Scott called a special election for March 11th , and Sink and GOPer David Roby ended up being the candidates in the race for this district [Florida 13] . Florida 13 is no easy task . It is suburban turf in and around Tampa Bay and Saint Petersburg .

.. Normally , it is a moderately Democrat – leaning district . Young , being the long – time chairman of the Appropriations Committee , would normally be the only GOPer who could hold this district for the Republicans . But this year is no normal political year …. the question is , can Sink hold the district for the Dems , or will Roby flip it back to the GOP ??

.. ObamaCrapCare is weighing things down for the DemoCraps . They are getting nailed by an unprecedented TV ad barrage all around the country . Now , they are getting it here . Plus , AFP and other groups are also getting the free media from the news coverage of the ad war . This time , for the Dems , the shoe is on the other foot .

.. You would think that Sink would learn to discipline her mouth and her campaign message . She has been around the block before , and she should gosh darned know better . She was the State of Florida ‘ s Chief Financial Officer , and was the 2010 nominee for Governor against Rick Scott . Guess what ?? …

.. she stuck her foot in her mouth , big time …. she got a little flip with her mouth , and made a potentially huge gaffe … see here …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..

.. [link] to the campaign blooper …

.. you can bet that Roby and his campaign will have this blunder up on the airwaves all over the place . This kind of gaffe is a gift to Roby , and hopefully he will take maximum advantage of it …
