… Erdogan is Playing with Fire [#Israel strikes Back]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 20th,2014

.. things could get even more dicey …

.. it seems that that Turkish group , I.H.H. , could be getting ready for another blockade run @ Gaza …

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

.. the big problem is with new Turkish President Erdogan . Does he really want a shooting war with Israel ? He is planning to send a part of his country ‘ s navy as an escort . Doing so with a publically declared ” cordon sanitaire ” is , if I remember right , an act of war …

.. I wonder about the condition of the Turkish military . Will they really follow the orders of this jackass , or might there be more trouble to come ??

… Ah , D.O.D. , What you are Doing is Circumventing State Law …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 14th,2013

.. in the state in which a base is located .

.. In Ohio , where I am , a base of this size , where there is likely to be such a gay soldier / airman population is at Wright – Patterson Air Force Base . Wright – Pat (for short) is huge , with many thousands of officers and airmen and airwomen . It also has detachments from the other services . These folks , though , have a problem .

.. For them , they have wither to live on base , or within a reasonable distance of the base . That means about 30 to 40 miles . Down there (Wright – Pat is downstate , just northeast of the City of Dayton , actually in Fairborn) , that means those folks live entirely within the state of Ohio . Where , matter of fact , that so – called “Same Sex Marriage” is both illegal , as well as unconstitutional . Huge Oops !

.. Somehow , I do not think that even a significant chunk of the Senate (in Democratic hands , for now) , much less saying the House (which is GOP – controlled) are going to be too thrilled with such a stunt . Circumventing local laws , where marriage is governed , and allowed servicemen and servicewomen to abrogate those local laws is not going to go over very well .

.. You might think why I picked on Wright – Pat ? It is , by far , the largest military base in the state of Ohio . No other one is really in its size class . Also , one other factor . Guess in whose congressional district parts of the base are located ?

.. John Boehner . Yea , Speaker of the House John Boehner . Whoops .

… Obama does not Have the Guts , Er , Balls …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 18th,2013

.. Simply put , POTUS could close the Guantanamo Bay prison right now , if he really wanted to …

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the University of Southern California (Video of the speech) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

[-] it is a military prison . Guantanamo Bay is a Navy Base , folks . On Cuban soil , no less .

[-] Barack H. Obama is President of the United States , at least the current one .

[-] POTUS is the commander – in – chief of our army and navy , our armed forces .

.. If he really wanted to , he could issue the order , transfer the inmates out to another nation or base , and close Gitmo . Right Now . There are a few problems with that …

.. no other base is really equipped for the inmates ,

.. those bases are in allied nations ,

.. who would want those inmates . Their countries of origin sure as hell would not want them . Most of them are likely from the Arab world , from the Palestinian territories , Saudi Arabia , Kuwait , Yemen , etc .

.. Congress can restrict their transfer domestically . Not overseas . Also , not to another U.S. military base with a prison . If the commander – in – chief says they go , then they go . Congress makes the rules , and pays the bills , but the President commands .

.. Chiefly , POTUS does not have the guts . Which figures . Obama is a wus , a gutless wonder . If he had to stand election again , he would face a primary challenge . Most likely , from Miz Hillary , or some other DemoCrap willing to roll the dice , especially one with $$ .
