… America ‘ s Mayor stirred up a Hornet ‘ s Nest [#POTUS commentary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 26th,2016

.. you had better believe it , to be sure ..

.. Rudy really stirred it up . Not just that , though .

.. I am sure that he meant to do it ..

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

.. but why ?? …

.. one reason is that many of Obama ‘ s big influences while he was coming of age [politically] were those of communists and those of anti – capitalists . That has never really and truly been looked into in any way , shape , and form . People deserve to be held accountable for their actions …

.. His Lordship is no exception …

… the Possibility of Michael Bloomberg [#POTUS]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 1st,2015

.. if he ran IN the Democratic primary , it would cause no end of problems for Miz Hillary . Bloomberg is worth over $10 billion , so he could self – fund his own campaign . He could end up building his own political organization , independent of the regular Dem parties in the states [and the D.N.C.] . That would literally force Miz Hillary to compete for the nomination , if she really wanted it …

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

.. if Bloomberg ran for POTUS as an Independent , he could run a really effective campaign . He would have to building his own political organization outside of any political party , though , That That should not be a significant hurdle for someone who has build the size of business that Bloomberg has . the headaches for the Dems would not end there ..

.. Bloomberg running as an independent would cause no end of problems for the Democrats . He would first have to get on the ballot . Except for New York , that would not be a significant hurdle . Popular support may well be there . most of all , it would throw normally blue states into play for everyone to win , and not just the Dems . Which would scare the hell out of them …

… A New York City Tragedy [#eric garner]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 5th,2014

.. this was a needless death .

.. what was the N.Y.P.D. harassing a guy over untaxed cigarettes , especially with N.Y.C. ‘ s obscene level of cigarette taxation …

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

.. New York state ‘ s rate of cigarette taxes is bad enough . Then New York City loads it on on top of the state ‘ s very obscene cigarette tax rates . So , what did they expect to happen ? Nothing ? Duh ! …

.. haven’t those idiots studied economics , especially the Laws of Supply & Demand , of Human Nature , and the Law of Unintended Consequences . Those idiots have one rip – roaring black market going , and the N.Y.P.D. has more important things to do than attacking citizens over untaxed ciggies and what are known as ” loosies . ”

.. contrary to popular opinion and talking heads , the worst that I think that these folks are going to get is a manslaughter rap . Murder ?? No ! ….

.. no , I am not excusing the cop ‘ s misconduct . He used an unprofessional act [the chokehold ] . The use of the chokehold has been banned , and the cops participating should have damn well known better . They could have ” tased ” the guy to subdue him if they needed to …

… I have been tased , and trust me , it is not fun . I did it as a test when I was considering actually buying one . I wanted to understand what it was to be on the receiving end . If I was going to possess one of those things , then I felt the responsibility to the public to understand what I was doing ….

.. I obviously would not want to be shot in order to learn how to use a gun . But , before purchasing one , I will go to a gun range so that I know what it is to hold a weapon , to holster it , to care for it , and to shoot it . I think that it would be a common – sense maneuver before buying a gun …

… Earth to D.C. [#pro gun rights]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 7th,2014

.. what part of Palmer v DC do you not understand ? ..

.. from the initial flurry of news out of the District , it appears they need to have someone hit them upside the head with a baseball bat in order to get the message …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the news piece ..

.. it appears that the D.C. City Council is filled with a bunch of anti – gun rights radicals . Some are as bad as the Chairman of the Council Judiciary Committee , who is as bad as it gets ..

.. it also appears that D.C. is going to follow the example of New York Stae and New York City . that State is infamous for its Williams Act , which is basically a ” may issue ” measure . That will not fly here . The Williams Act is notorious for being next – to – impossible to get a gun permit …

.. if you follow the text of Palmer , you will see quotes from Heller , McDonald , Moore v Madigan , and Peruta v Cty of San Diego . That makes it a very , very strong pro – gun rights ruling . It makes Palmer a ” shall – issue ” ruling , in all likelihood . If the D.C. City Council does not get the message , someone else just might do the drafting . Say , like Judge Skilling himself , or Congress . His Lordship would just love that …

..Further research on Judge Skilling shows him to be a moderate conservative . He is familiar with the District , contrary to popular belief . He served for many years on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [or , F.I.S.C.] , and sat for many cases on the D.C. bench . That is how he got Palmer , due to the game – playing by the judges on the D.C. bench ..

.. there is obviously more to come on this dandy . Stay tuned ….

… A Remarkable Speech … by A DemoCrap [#Hakeem Jeffries]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 6th,2014

.. RightScoop is Right ..

.. we may not agree on much ..

.. however , this full – throated and vocal support of Israel is striking ..

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the rally speech …

.. this guy appears to be not your standard member of the Congressional Black Caucus . My guess is that a significant part of his district , as well as the surrounding district(s) , are Jewish . Not just that , but also Central European as well as Eastern European . So , this guy is respecting a significant minority of his constituents …

.. this guy bears watching …

… 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 …

… Bill Donahue is One Skilled Operator …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 3rd,2014

.. and , as a result , he exposed the Gay Rights crowd in New York City for the hypocrites that they are …

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

.. Bill did , as a lark , tested out the LGBT crowd in NYC by expressing interest in ” marching ” in their Gay Pride parade , which , if I remember right , is held in June . He wanted to march , carrying a sign , one which would have said ” Straight is Great . ” Well , they said that there was a session briefing regarding the rules and other issues regarding participation ….

.. He questioned it , asking if it were mandatory . The LGBT crowd responded yes , that it was , that it was part of the rules of participating in the parade …. Gotcha !

.. He then responded , why can they have rules for participation , and that others , such as the Ancient Order of Hibernians (regarding the Saint Patrick ‘ s Day parade) , may not … They were silent …

— Note — I actually saw it one year , in the mid 1990s . I was in N.Y.C. for a vacation . I had been to Saint Patrick Cathedral as a part of a personal pilgrimmage of faith (while albeit not a Catholic at that time — I am one now) … I returned across the street to Rockefeller Center to have lunch when the ruckus came by . Good Lord , what an immoral circus . You cannot immagine how disgusting and distasteful it was . I left after awhile because I was so offended . A number of parents with families did the same …

.. they do have that kind of LGBT Gay Pride Parade in Greater Cleveland . However , here , the folks are on their best behaviour . Their  community wants to put their best foot forward  , as against those idiots in New York City …

.. Baldwin has a habit of going off in public , especially at member of the media . This time , it cost him dearly . He exploded at a femaile reporter for a local New York City tv station , going off with a homophobic rant .

.. surprisingly , pMSNBC actually has  some standards . Or , more likely , it wanted to avoid the embarassment of having to  fight off  protests from  its viewer base , and then act to get rid of him …

.. It is about time … Bye – Bye , Alec , you can go back to being a abnormal jackass , now …

bankruptcy) , or New York City (in moral bankruptcy) , Cleveland is at least facing up to its problems and is attempting to deal with them . Not always successfully , mind you . But , these folks are trying .

.. Clevelanders re – elected Frank Jackson to a well – earned third term as mayor . He may not have been an advocate of the casino gambling issue , but he grabbed ahold of it , and put it to use . The Caesars Palace casino is , unlike the other 3 Ohio casinos , being used for ecnomic development , and as an economic driver of such . It was used to revedevop two prime pieces of real estate , and is the base for the development of a third . He was the quaterback of the effort to finance and build the new Medical Merchandise Mart . Not bad for a little heralded city councilman from the Near East Side

.. It is time for him to go . Rob Ford should resign . if he does not , he should be forced from office by either : (-) the Toronto City Council , (-) the voters of the city of Toronto , in a recall election , or , if possible , by the provincial legislature of the province of Ontario , in an act to impeach the mayor .

… Joe Lhota in New York City [Mayor] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 4th,2013

… this endorsement may be something of a wish . But it is my fervent wish that a sane and reasonable person be elected Mayor of

MTA Chairman and CEO Joe Lhota on the Scene

New York City .

.. New York City has made great progress over the last 20 years . The murder rate in the city and in each borough has shrunk drastically . The rate of crime has , in most parts of the city , has declined markedly . Most of the city is a very marketable place to be and to be seen . Business in the city has never been better . Yet , this progress in the city ‘ s life is not irreversible .

.. It is progress that is not irreversible . It can be lost , if things are not taken care of very carefully . The election of a loonie – leftie democrap , an ObamaCrap clone , one such as Bill deBlasio , would be a serious setback in the city . It would show that the City may have to take a step or two back , before it takes more steps forward .

.. Hopefully , the voters of New York City will come to their senses . Joe Lhota in New York City …

… bye , bye Elliot !! …(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

uncommon in N.Y.C. , but this much ? The answer , thankfully , is no , no thank you , and better yet ,  go away , for good .

.. Both those two idiots lost in their Democratic party primaries last night in New York City [Spitzer for City Comptroller (paymaster) , Weiner for , of course , Mayor] .

.. the Big Apple is likely , barring a miracle , heading to the left . Bill de Blasio , the current Public Advocate , is likely to be the Democratic nominee for mayor . His GOP opponent is likely to be former NY MTA transit union head Joe Lhota . de Blasio will be , as you might think , be favoured in the general election , but it will be no walkover . Lhota will likely draw significant support for Latinos and Blacks , as well as Jews , Ethnics , and the working class (for obvious reasons) . de Blasio will have to work for it , and if he is smart , he should work his fanny off .

.. Only winning 40% of the vote (and , barely , at that) in the Democratic primary is not a ringing endorsement from your own party . If he is not careful , the other candidates ‘ supporters may well cross over to Lhota , or just stay home . NYP and NYS will endorse Lhota . Newsday as well . NYDN endorsement will be helpful . Also , minority papers in jewish and black communities , such as Queens and Harlem , will be vital . NYT will endorse the Dem , but he should not court it . Lhota can use it as a “billy club” against him with the GOP and the working class voters that hate the Times ‘ guts .

… Earth to ” Three Musketeers ” … [bad boy politicians]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 24th,2013

.. Get Out of here .

.. Especially you , Anthony Weiner .

.. Bob Filner & Elliot Spitzer are bad enough . Both of them should get out of politics . Filner is a current office holder , being the current Mayor of San Diego . It goes without saying that he should resign his job . He is a serial sexual harasser , fondler , and likely , a sexual assaulter and rapist . He needs to go . Spitzer should withdraw from the Comptroller ‘ s race , today .

.. However , Anthony Weiner is in a class (below) of his own , by himself . The New York Times editorial board declared Tuesday evening that amid more sex scandal accusations, former congressman Anthony Weiner should withdraw from the race for New York mayor.

The board suggested that “the serially evasive Mr. Weiner should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City.”

Accusations against Weiner surfaced Tuesday from nightlife website “The Dirty.” The site claims Weiner sexted with a young woman both before and after his resignation from Congress in 2011; screenshots of their alleged online conversations were also posted.

As The Times points out, it is the timing of this newest revelation that matters, “as it would for any politician who violates the public’s trust and then asks to have it back.”

During a press conference on Tuesday, Weiner acknowledged that some of the reports were accurate, and though his problem continued into 2012, “the behavior is behind me.” He plans to continue with his campaign.

The board declared Weiner’s statement “ridiculous.”

LEC again —  anyone suffering from the overexposure like that below (these pictures) should have the decency , dignity , and sanity to withdraw . I rarely quote from the Slimes , much less want to use their material . Today , I do .  Take your dirty laundry , Anthony , and  GO  ! …

… More from the “Three Musketeers??” [Weiner,Filner,Spitzer] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 24th,2013

.. or , is it that Anthony Weiner is playing “catchup…” [joke intended]

.. I am amazed that this arrogant and boorish [bleep] is even thinking of staying in the New York City mayor ‘ s race . I have to wonder

English: Anthony Weiner at the LGBT Pride para...

English: Anthony Weiner at the LGBT Pride parade, New York City, 2009. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

about the public opinion polls , though . Even though it is still many weeks to election day , Weiner is still leader (as is Spitzer , for NYC comptroller) . What is it in the water these days in the Big Apple ?

.. Also , what is it with Huma Abedin , Weiner ‘ s wife . She is actually talking in public , and staying with Sluggo through all of this . Why ? She should wheel , turn , slap him , kick him in the balls , and walk out (with their child) , and then file for divorce .

.. Was Anthony Weiner set up? I don’t usually go in for conspiracy theories; besides, the whole spectacle of Weiner-Spitzer-Filner makes a conspiracy implausible even for the most implacable Grassy Knollers. It’s not just that all three of these less-than-gentle-men have names that coincidentally end in “-er,” but the fact that they all sound like bad porn star pseudonyms. Though now that you mention it, “Carlos Danger” is a pretty good porn pseudonym, too.

.. The indirect claim in the documentary “Client 9” about Spitzer’s fall that the nefarious Roger Stone was somehow behind it all sounds more than farfetched–until you take in the bizarre fact that Stone has a prominent tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back. What’s up with that? Anyone with a Nixon tattoo on their upper back has to be a little . . . bent.

weiner sexting

Take in that last sentence: “Specifically your health care rants were a huge turn on“!!!

Are there really liberals out there who are turned on by Weiner’s panting about health care ?

… What Happens to the Senate Seat in New Jersey ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 4th,2013

.. the appointment in almost every state , save Oregon , is made by the Governor . Which means Governor Chris Christie [R-NJ] . Which presents the state , and Christie ,   with an interesting situation …

when is the special election ..

.. likely 2014 . Normally , the next general election is the Governor ‘ s election , this fall . However , it is the next FEDERAL general

Governor of New Jersey at a town hall in Hills...

Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ)

election to which this applies .So , who ever is appointed will not have to appear on a ballot for about 17 months .

Who makes the appointment ?

.. Christie .

How long does the new Senator serve ?

.. if there is more than two years left in the term , there is a special election held to fill out the remainder of the term . If there is less , then the appointee serves until the next general election for the seat .

Which is ? …

.. until the November election in 2014 , and once those results are certified . If the appointee does not run , the candidate who is elected immediately takes office .

Who ?

.. most likely , a Republican . Who knows ? I do not know New Jersey politics all that well , so a guess would be state Sen Thomas Kean , Jr (R) , the Lieutenant Governor  , Kim Guadagno , or state Senator Joe Kyrillos (R) , a recent GOP candidate for the other Senate Seat

against now discredited Dem Robert Menendez .

.. I have to admit , that it might be possible that Governor Christie just might appoint Newark mayor and (D) Cory Booker to the seat . The odds are not good , but it is possible . New Jersey is a light Blue state , but a Republican can win there , including conservatives , provided they run smart races , and are well – financed . One thing  about competing against Frankie Boy was that he was a hypocritical rich liberal . He derived much of his fortune from having helped found ADP , Inc . That , and the costs of dealing with the Dem machines in NJ counties , and also the New York City and Philadelphia media markets , make $$ a big necessity .

… and , god – willing , the next congresswoman from the newly created 4th district of Utah . Also , she would be the first elected female Black Republican in our nation ‘ s history …

… I am absolutely amazed at Micheal Bloomberg …

… Has he had a case of brain freeze , or what ? the pain , the suffering , the dislocation , and the supply shortages , not to mention the damage and the human suffering of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy has left one hell of  a mess , all over the region , especially in the state of New Jersey . At least Chris Christe is using his brain , in addition to his common sense …

… New Jerseyans are to be commended , so far . The damage that they have suffered from Sandy is hideous . Do they have a right to complain ? You bet they do . Are they ? Generally , no , they are not . They are putting on their thinking caps , and their tool belts , putting out their Bobcats ,  and putting their shoulders to the grindstone , and getting about the task of rebuilding …

… and Mayor Mikey and the City of New York  decide to go on with the New York Marathon ?!?! Is he crazy ? HELL Yes !!

… Chris Christie is leading , and doing so by example . He is not worried about his re – election chances , and he is up for election next year . If he handles this effectively , even Cory Booker will not dare challenge him …
