… Chaos in Nevada [#State Democrat convention]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 25th,2016

.. might this be a preview of the D.N.C. in Philadelphia ? It might ..

.. remember , this was the Nevada State Democratic Convention . It was seated to conduct general business , but also to select delegates to the D.N.c. . The Nevada caucuses were very close [Clinton – 52% to Sanders – 47%] , so the delegate selection should have reflected that split . It didn’t ..

.. the Nevada Dem party is in the pocket of Dingy Harry Reid , who is a chief ally of Miz Hillary . They tried to ” stack the deck ” as much as they could get way with . They went too far , and the Sanders folks revolted ..

.. enjoy the fun , Dems !! ..

… Now What Happens [#Dingy Harry ‘ s US Senate Seat]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 12th,2016

.. given the Silver State ‘ s politics ?? …

.. the DemoCraps are likely to lose the seat . It will make it one seat that much harder for the DemoCraps to potentially regain a Senate majority . Especially when their own leader decides to retire and give up the ghost …

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

.. two chief candidates come to mind . One is the current Governor , Brian Sandoval . He is reluctant to run , but he can probably be persuaded . Another is state AG Adam Laxalt . Laxalt is the grandson of former Senator and Ronald Reagan confidante Paul Laxalt . So the GOP bench is in pretty good shape …

.. the Dems ‘ bench is not . they have a paucity of candidates , and Reid ‘ s own son Rory is severely damaged goods . So , they do not have very much hope of holding the seat ..

.. also , it makes Nevada ripe for the picking in the Presidential election . Without Reid , the Dems in Nevada are in very sorry shape . A presidential campaign team can only help so much . So the GOP should be able to pick up Nevada ‘ s 6 electoral votes …

… What werre the NV Dems Thinking [#absentee ballot process][#military][#US]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 24th,2016

.. getting absentee ballots to our overseas military is never easy . You have to think ahead , and to plan ahead in order for them to get their ballots in enough time for them to be able to vote , especially without being rushed . Then it takes more time for their ballots to be returned ..

.. then you have a caucus . That presents even more headaches ..

.. Caucuses are meetings . People take time out of their day [or evening] to stand up for their political principles , and those candidates whom they might support . However , this becomes a very big issue for the uniformed military ..

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

.. in other countries , their military services are rife with politics . As a result , the professional level of theose nation ‘ s armed services suffers as a result . our does not , and does not permit it . But it does permit [and encourage ] people to vote …

.. but what the DemOCrap party in Nevada did in their recent caucus is a disgrace . They had our troops in the field spend 3 to 4 hours on the phone [on an international call] to participate in their local caucus . Are you kidding ?? Those calls are extraordinarily expensive , as well as time – wasting . Be real ..

.. The Nevada GOP was far more practical . They did things the olde fashioned way . They had our troops participate with their candidate preferences [in the caucus] with an absentee ballot . Simple enough ..

.. There has to be a better way . Maybe the Nevada GOP Already has it ..

… Nice Going , DummyCrats [#Navajo Nation][#Animas River spill][#E.P.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 27th,2015

.. the political tone – deafness of the Democrats on this one is incredible , and growing . It is also incredibly political stupid — and dangerous …

.. the Navajos are one of the largest Indian tribes [in terms of land area] in the nation . Their holdings cover parts of 4 states : Colorado [very little] , Utah [bigger] , New Mexico [much bigger still] , and , biggest of all , Arizona [huge] …

.. they obviously have several million folks who can claim Navajo ancestry . so the Navajos do give a flying fiddlers fig about what goes on back home on their ancestral lands . This environmental spill [courtesy of the ObamaCrap E.P.A. colossal blunder] effects them greatly .

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

.. ergo , the political effect could be huge . Utah is as deep red as it gets , so that one would not be particularly be changed by this . But , you add in Nevada , where a fair number of Navajos have migrated ? Yeow , that one is up for grabs . Colorado ? The number of Navajos is small , but the rest of the state has to be watching what the Obamacraps , the E.P.A. , and the DummyCraps in general are doing …

.. then comes New mexico . The Navajo prescence there is very strong , and spreads off of their lands . It could tip other tribes also [not limited to the Hopi] , and thus New Mexico politics …

.. then comes Arizona . The Navajo prescence in Arizona is enormous , including surrounding the Hopi lands . It would not just tip Az politics in general . Right Now , Arizona is roughly ” pink , ” or leaning GOP . You piss off enough of the Indians and you can [for the Dems] kiss off Az for a generation …

… Elections Disaster in Nevada [#statewide] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 2nd,2014

.. the figures like this [42% GOP , 41% Dem , 17% other] are an abject disaster for the DemoCraps ….

.. unlike many states , Nevada does have statewide elections for this year . They have the full smack : Treasurer , Auditor , AG , Lieutenant Gov [elected separate] , Governor …

.. also , the legislature , which for a state of its size that is still growing like crazy , is fairly narrowly divided …

.. Brian Sandoval (former federal district judge , latino , businessman , current governor) …. is going to win re – election . He is evidently pulling the GOP vote along with him ….

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com(CampaignSpot)]..
.. [link] to the campaign news …

.. Sandoval will win re – election in a walk . He may well pull in other GOP statewide elected officeholders along with him . That will help come 2016 , when there is the likely heavyweight bout with Dingy Harry Reid for his US Senate Seat …. it will be a lot easier for Sandoval to run , with a GOP L.G. ….

.. also , a DemoCrap sitout will hit the legislature … the Nevade Senate is only 11 to 10 DemoCrap , so it may well flip … the Nevada House is 26 to 16 Dem , so it would take a 6 seat gain for the GOP to take control …

.. the Nevada Senate should flip , and the Nevada House just might …

… What a Waste [ObamaCrapCare]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. it is what you get when you waste more than $500 million on state exchanges , and those exchanges crash and burn …

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

.. Oregon and its mess is the topper of them all . CoverOregon blew through nearly $330 million , and the number of actual people that were enrolled in ObamaCrapCare online in Oregon — 0 . You got that right , Zippo . Zero , Zilch . the Big Zipparoni …

.. in other words , nicely done …

… Where the Government has a Problem with the Bundys [in Nevada] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 21st,2014

.. I have not said much on the Bundy case , principally because I did not know all that much about it …

.. to be honest , I am still unsure about the case . Cliven Bundy may well be in the wrong legally , and maybe not . I will explain why below … Politically , he has humiliated the Federal Government . The ObamaCraps , the Reids , and their minions have looked extremely stupid in all of this . Yes , there will be a cost to it , especially to ” Dingy Harry ” Reid .. He deserves it , given the way that he has behaved like a gigantic bully in all of this …

.. legally , normally , the government is in the right , for the most part . the Bundy family does (or should) owe the government money for grazing fees . The how much is the point of the dispute …. However , ….

[-] one problem is homesteading … Yea , homesteading , believe it or not . It goes back several generations , because homesteading was not formally ended by Federal law until the late 1970s . Cliven Bundy ‘ s ancestors have and probably should homesteaded land in Nevada . So , the Bundy family likely has quite a spread of land there in Clark County . I wonder how big , and how much of it they homesteaded …

[-] adverse possession — this one is the much bigger sticky wicket . If you are in effective possession of your neighbor ‘ s land [even if the neighbor is the Feds] , and the neighbor does nothing about it , you pay the taxes , it is publically known , basically you can file a special deed claim on the land for ” adverse possession . ” This one is where the Bundys I believe have a far stronger case against the Federal Government …

[-] the land in Nevada is originally the Feds — to be honest , it is — Unlike California and Texas , who came in to the Union [via annexation] as ” independent republics , ” and that land was originally the state ‘ s title . Nevada , Arizona , New Mexico , and Utah are different . They came into the Union after having been created as terrirories out of the gains the U.S. made during the Mexican War [1848-1850] …

.. the Treaty that Mexico signed (Guadelupe – Hidalgo , I think) ceded the land to the United States . That means it went to the Federal Government , not the States . They had not been created or had been admitted , yet .

[-] Ironically , Nevada was lucky — Nevada was admitted early , probably before it should have been , because its population was not quite enough . It was part of the popular highjinks that Congress pulled in 1864 along with the creation and admission of West Virginia , and Abe Lincoln ‘ s need for free state electoral votes (because of George McClellan ‘ s challenge as a DemoCrap) ..

… Hello … Cattle are Still Missing …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 21st,2014

.. yes , you heard me right …

.. the Bundys are missing 100 head of their cattle …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the blog link ..

.. I am not making a moral judgement as of yet on their case . I am not sure that I know enough to make a decision one way or another on the subject . However , since the Bureau of Land Management has backed down , for now , they should have returned the cattle … all of them … if  they  have an issue with it , then dock the Bundys the proceeds for the grazing fees for the value of  the cattle that they killed (@ Fair market Value , boys & girls) …

.. hopefully , this can be resolved in court , I hope . By the by , Dingy Harry Reid , back off and butt out ….

… Confrontation in Nevada …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 12th,2014

.. I am not sure what to think of this guy …

.. they are good people , attached to the land , good stewards of the land , and what do they get for their troubles ? They get screwed by the government …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the blogpost ..

.. do these folks have a legit beef with the BLM ? Maybe …. do they owe the government money ? yes , and probably quite a bit of it , to be honest …. do they have a legit beef with the E.P.A. ? Hell , yes . That ” turtle ” that is said that they are trying to ” protect ” is actually doing very well , and is thriving elsewhere in Clark County …. should they have their cattle confiscated ? to be honest , no …. confiscating cattle is not necessary …

.. more on this , to be sure …

… Big Shot [News Editorials , on ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 18th,2013

.. when it is small – town newspapers calling for repeal and replacement of ObamaCrapCare , that is one thing , but …

.. when it is the editorial pages of the Chicago Tribune [link1] , and the Las Vegas Review – Tribune [link2] ?

.. that is something else . The Tribune is , of course , the largest newspaper in the Tribune newspapers chain , and is the largest newspaper in Chicago , Illinois , the home of POTUS . The Las Vegas Review – Journal is , by far , the largest newspaper in the state of Nevada , as well as Clark County , and the city of Las Vegas . Las Vegas is , of course , the seat of power of Dingy Harry Reid the (for now) Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate .

.. That these two papers are ringing the bells of these two jokers is not insignificant . Obama will never be on a political ballot , again . Right now , Dingy Harry is likely to retire when he is up again . Reid will have a gigantic target on his back , by then be the Senate Minority Leader , and have more than one well – financed opponent . A primary opponent for Dingy Harry (from either the right , or from the left) cannot be ruled out . Things could get very hot , indeed for the Dingy One .

.. Here are some snipets of both editorials …

… from the Chicago Tribune …

the headline is enough … Stop Digging . Start Over .

… from the Las Vegas Review – Journal …

Congressional Democrats can’t run away from this mess fast enough, as evidenced by the number of partisans proposing or supporting legislation to let individuals keep their current plans — which led to the president’s Hail Mary on Thursday. At this point, however, it’s impossible to fix that broken promise. The insurance industry, which has spent all year entirely remodeling plans to become Obamacare compliant, can’t turn it all back around in just 45 days and is furious with being scapegoated into trying to do so. An industry insider told BuzzFeed.com, “This doesn’t change anything other than force insurers to be the political flak jackets for the administration.”

Said Karen Ignagni, president of America’s Health Insurance Plans: “Changing the rules after health plans have already met the requirements of the law could destabilize the market and result in higher premiums for consumers.”

As the guys in those Guinness commercials would say, “Brilliant!” Obamacare policy premiums in many cases were already going to cost significantly more money; this “fix” could cause even bigger increases. The law is so deeply flawed, with so many components in direct conflict with one another, that tweaking just one part will accelerate its collapse.

The Obamacare debacle is just getting started — and it only gets worse from here. Repeal and replace.

… Those Union Protests in Las Vegas are Sick …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 11th,2013

.. what i am referring to are Culinary Workers union protests at one of the largest non – union hotels that is left in the region . The Cosmopolitan is a large hotel , around [2,995] rooms , and it is owned by , of all people , Deutche Bank . Originally , Hyatt Hotels (the Pritzker family company) was going to build this monster , but the 2008 recession scuttled the plans . DB bought  the hotel / condo / parking garage / casino complex for around $1.2 billion .  .

.. Casinos are a big business . Ohio now has casino gambling , although the effect of the business is limited . There is no casino competition in Ohio . There are only 4 casinos , one each in Cleveland , Toledo , Columbus , and Cincinnati . Caesars owns and manages 2 ,  while Hollwood owns and manages the other 2 .

.. In Ohio , like the other states , casino gambling is tightly regulated . Ohio patterned its regulatory setup after New Jersey , where the regulatory setup is generally considered to be the best in the country . Right now , casino gambling in Ohio is set in the state ‘ s  constitution , so it will not grow for quite some time . In other states , it is quite different .

.. In Nevada , the casino industry is huge . Las Vegas is the nation ‘ s and the world ‘ s casino gambling capital .  Any gambling – related company that is anyone is there in Nevada . The size of the casinos . Geez whiz ! . They are as large as (the second coming) of the MGM – Grand , with over , you heard me right , [xx] rooms . Wow !

.. It will not be easy for the Culinary Workers . Most of the city ‘ s casino workers [porters , dealers , service , etc] are members of one union or another . However , the Culinary (Food Service) Workers are the largest and the most influential .  They are , like most  unions , heavily DemoCrap – leaning .  No big surprise there .

.. However , Nevada is unlike other states . Nevada has a significant – sized Latino community , and it is growing still . However , Clark County , in which Las Vegas sits , has resumed growing like crazy after the 2008-2011 recession . It is also , unlike the People ‘ s Republic of Taxifornia , much more Republican – leaning . Dean Heller , a Republican , is one of the U.S. Senator (with Dingy Harry Reid being the other) . Governor Brian Sandoval , a latino Republican , and former federal district court judge , is leading the way .

.. Nevada is a right – to – work state , but its efects are limited . A stronger right – to – work law would be very , very helpful . It will take a GOP legislature to do that . That would be nice . Also , it would take some balls among the casino hotel companies to stand up to the union thuggery . Once they do , their hold on the industry will be broken  , and done so for good …

… Dingy Harry should Resign …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 10th,2013

.. that , of course , is Senate DemoCrap leader “Dingy Harry” Reid . Good ‘ ol Dingy has stepped into it , big time , this time . His libeling and slandering of the GOP as racist is far below and beyond the pale .

.. The editorial page of the Washington Examiner puts it best …
Last week, it was Harry Reid telling his Senate colleagues to “sit down and shut up.” Not so long ago, it was the Senate Majority Leader playing the part of Joe McCarthy by sliming Mitt Romney with slanderous, never-documented suggestions that the Republican presidential nominee was a tax evader. These are only a couple of recent examples of the Nevada senator’s increasingly cranky querulousness.

Now it’s Reid outrageously suggesting that President Obama’s Republican critics disagree with him because he is black. Reid’s blatant attempt to cultivate racial division came during a radio interview when he said he hopes Republican criticism of the president is “based on substance and not the fact that he’s African-American.”

Just as patriotism is said to be the last refuge of scoundrels, Reid’s offensive remarks suggest the last refuge of Washington Democrats is playing the race card. Reid is certainly not the first Washington Democrat to do so, but his latest comment certainly ranks among the most vile.

As Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said, “Our country deserves more from those in Washington. I hope Senator Reid will realize the offensive nature of his remarks and apologize to those who disagree with the President’s policies because of one thing — they are hurting hardworking American families.”

Scott, the first African-American to represent South Carolina in the Senate since Reconstruction, is being too diplomatic. In the name of civility, it’s time for Reid to retire and go home to Search Light, Nev.

… Bravo , Tim … [Senator Tim Scott] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 10th,2013

.. it refers to Dingy Harry Reid ‘ s habit of sticking his foot in his mouth . In this case , he really blew it . He attacked the GOP , while

… U.S. Senator Tim Scott [R-SC] … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

being interviewed on a Nevada radio show , for opposing POTUS ‘ policies because he was a black man . Big Oops !

.. It seems ol ‘ Dingy Harry forgot the only current black member of the U.S. Senate is a Republican : Tim Scott of South Carolina . Scott is a religious man , a quiet man , and a local businessman , when not busy with politics .
Scott let him have it , in both the Washington Examiner , and in the Daily Caller .

.. Bravo , and thank you .

… Dingy Harry , You are an Ass !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 9th,2013

.. seems like ol ‘ Dingy Harry (Senate DemoCrap Leader Harry Reid) was on a radio program in Nevada , earlier this afternoon . Oh Boy , did he stick his foot in his mouth . As Usual ! ..

.. Good ol ‘ Dingy Boy commented on Republican opposition ( in general ) , and Senate Republican opposition (in particular) to POTUS ‘ policies . He said that he hoped “that their opposition is based on policy , and not on the President ‘ s race . ” Huge Oops !

.. You Stupid jackhole . Only an arrogrant and pompous ass would make such boorish and racist comments as those . Republican opposition is most definitely based on policy , you [bleeping] [bleep]hole . No , it is not race – based . Only you and your arrogance and racism are race — based , you stupid jerk ! ..

… is Dingy Harry nuts ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 2nd,2012

Harry Reid ,  of all people , is supremely arrogant , or he is totally insane . He has been quoted as saying he and his democratic caucus will do everything in their power to stop Mitt Romney and his agenda , if he is elected . Maybe he needs a 72 hr hold in a mental hospital for a thorough exam of his gray matter and his schmartz . More than likely , he is an extraordinarily arrogant ass . Why wave a red flag in front of  a bull , 96 hrs out , and give him even more motivation than he and she have already …

Harry Reid

… earth to Dingy Harry , the election is Tuesday . Duh ! … … No one has been elected yet , stupid ! … Nevada has , like other states , early voting , and it is a competitive tossup state . It is , in theory , leaning to President Obama ,  and POTUS is going to need all the help that he can get . the Nevada GOP is going to want revenge for 2010 , and his dirty tricks that he and the unions pulled in his own re – election campaign . and now , you piss us off even more ? Real Stupid , dumbass ! … also , Dingy Harry , you are assuming that you will and your fellow Dems will be in the majority . Considering that you have 23 seats to defend , and the 2 toughest GOP seats to defend are likely to be defended well , you will have a tough time  hanging on to your job , especially with a dumb – dumb stunt like this ! …
