… 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 …

… Are We in An Era of Tyranny ?? [#NY AG]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 15th,2015

.. considering the source , I would believe so ..

.. Eric Schneidermann is a radical leftist . Somehow , he was elected AG of the state of New York . In New York , the state ‘ s AG carries more power than those of most states . It is because the financial markets are headquarted in New York State [New York City , to be specific] ..

.. New York State also has some odd laws . Those laws give the state AG enormous power to be an immense pain – in – the neck to the financial markets and to a great many companies , if he / she decides to do so . former AG Elliot Spitzer was a classic case in point . He was an a crusade from the beginning of his tenure to its end . Unfortunately [for him] , the power went to his head . He was eventually forced out as Governor of New York due to a great many scandals …

.. Schneidermann is now choosing to be a royal pain in the neck to ExxonMobil . EM is standing up for its beliefs that man – made climate change is basically a pile of crap . Schneidermann is in the other camp . As a result , He is going on the offensive against ExxonMobil and other companies that do not believe in the ” religion ” of climate change ..

.. hopefully , thank God , there will be a G.O.P. president in January of 2017 . Once there is , the Justice Department can be cleaned out and reformed .Also , Justice can order Schnedermann to knock it off , or else …

… ObamaCrapCare Strikes Again [#New York – style]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 14th,2015

.. yes , NY – style …

.. as it goes for 250 cancer patients , among others ..

.. their health co – operative , Health Republic , had a contract with a number of significant New York state hospitals , including Memorial Sloan – Kettering . MSK is one of the finest hospitals in the United Staes , if not the world . But the NY state exchanges would only have one coop , Health Republic , that would carry MSK …

.. and now Health Republic is closing ..

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

.. among those being hurt are 250 NYC cancer patients . They had gotten their cancer [oncology] care at MSK . HR helped provide that care . But you cannot provide that care if you are out of business ..

.. it helps if your business , if even a non – profit , is a going concern . It means that , at least , your revenues are close to or are equal to your expenses . HR no longer is one ..

.. and those poor people end up paying the price …

… This was One that I did not Predict [#us house — NY 1]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 4th,2014

.. to be honest , I predicted a wash in New York …

.. Elise Stefanik is going to pick up one seat for the GOP [NY 21] . However , I think that Micheal Grimm may well be one of the only losers [NY 19] on Tuesday night …

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

.. this one would be great . An Army Reservist , a businessman , and a lawyer , Lee Zeldin …

.. will he win ? .. given John Gizzi ‘ s news [and the poll] , a very strong maybe ?!?! ….

.. if Grimm hangs on , and Dan Maffei [suburban NYC] gets knocked out , then that would make it +2 or maybe even +3 for the GOP in the  Empire State …

… You Have to Be Kidding [#NY State DemoCrap voters]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 4th,2014

.. I can understand following up to recruit voters …

.. but , to bully them ?? …

.. [h/t — NYPost.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. the NY State Democratic Committee sent out a not – so – friendly letter to several hundred thousand New Yorkers .. those in the City , on Long Island , and in Upstate areas .. growling at them to vote ..

.. who they vote for is their business , but that they voted is a public record . The State Committee can check it , and follow up with voters …

— note — it is the case in Ohio , as well . The parties will check with the county Boards of Election and the individual precincts in order to phone – toll individual voters … they will call them , but they will not send them letters and harass them … even the GOP and the Dems in Ohio are not that stupid …

… 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 ….

… Andrew Cuomo is Nuts …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 25th,2013

.. Andrew Cuomo is currently Governor of the State of New York . Governor . Not Dictator . He may well have some power to remove the sheriff of an individual county in New York . However , this is New York State .

.. Nothing is quite that easy in this state . He likely either has to answer to the legislature , or to the Circuit Court of Appeals , New York ‘

English: Andrew Cuomo, 11th United States Secr...

Andrew Cuomo (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

s highest court . Even if he can remove them on his own , without them , he cannot just do so without repercussions . Moral , as well as political . Especially in the affected county .

.. The county could act and remove the appointed sheriff , since New York State counties are all home – rule . They have an elected executive , with a county legislature . Also , the counties are not small . It would affect at least 1 or more State Senate Districts , and 2 or more State Assembly Districts . And both chambers would not like the precedent , either .

.. It would also destroy his law-and-order chances at re-election time . If one were indeed a sheriff , they should call his bluff . They enforce the law . They understand the law , ususally , far better than a Governor does . Whether it will work , or not . New York ‘ s century-old Sullivan Law is a big enough headache . SAFE is much worse . To be honest , if seriously challenged , both the Sullivan Law and SAFE are unconstitutional .

Tyrant: Cuomo Threatens to Remove Sheriffs If They Publicly Oppose His Gun Law

Posted By Bryan Preston On May 24, 2013 @ 7:42 am In Politics | 5 Comments

As the saying goes, scratch a liberal and you’ll find a tyrant underneath. NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo is but the latest example. He shoved a very restrictive and ill-considered gun law through the state legislature in the dead of night. Among its flaws, the law criminalized police officers who tote firearms with magazines that hold more than seven rounds. Sheriffs around the state have objected to the law. Cuomo summoned them to the state capitol under what appears to be a false pretext, and used the meeting to threaten them into silence.

Cuomo invited its leaders to the Capitol last month, people briefed on the meeting said. The group included Sheriffs’ Association Executive Director Peter Kehoe and Chemung County Sheriff Christopher Moss.

“We didn’t get a response (to the analysis) from him, but we could tell after the budget was passed that none of those recommendations were taken into consideration,” Moss said. “When we got there, we never got to the contents of the letter.”

Instead, Cuomo pushed the sheriffs to stop publicly speaking out against the act, Moss said.

“The governor was of the opinion that the sheriffs around the state should not be interjecting their personal opinions in reference to the law,” Moss said, adding that Cuomo said sheriffs can’t do that and enforce the law.

One person briefed on the meeting said Cuomo threatened to remove sheriffs from office, a little-used power afforded the state’s chief executive under the state constitution.

That would be an abuse of power. It would also not be out of character for Cuomo or, for that matter, Democrats writ large. Two of the three major Obama scandals — snooping on the press and the IRS — involve rampant abuses of power. Cuomo’s own tactics in passing the SAFE Act could be construed as abuses of power, as he used emergency provisions to waive the normal three-day public examination period. Legislators were not even afforded enough time to read the law they were voting on. The SAFE Act was not a response to any real emergency, but it did fulfill Cuomo’s wish to get a landmark bill through as quickly as possible.

Cuomo to State Sheriffs: Shut Up About Gun Law or Risk Termination

On May 21, 2013, in Andrew Cuomo, Gun Control, New York, by Rusty Weiss

What many had assumed would be a meeting regarding New York State Sheriffs’ Association

concerns about New York’s strict new gun laws, turned into a verbal scolding from the

Governor which included the threat of some people’s jobs if they didn’t toe the line

and shut up about the SAFE Act.
