… I Wonder [#JASTA]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 3rd,2016

.. if JASTA [Justice Against State Sponsors of Terrorism Act] is such a great idea ? ..

.. given our litigious environment , allowing another form of lawsuit is not a great idea . Our country has become notorious for the legal form of warfare , or lawfare . Are you sure that you want to unleash these sharks on a foreign nation ? ..

.. the obvious interests are national security and the national interest . We need to protect our nation ‘ s interests , and our nation ‘ s security in this day and age is absolutely critical . The biggest problem is retaliation by another nation ..

.. that potential for retaliation is not limited to the Saudis . Any other nation could pull this stunt , and prosecute legal action in their courts against our interests …

… James Clyburn , You are an Idiot [#Emancipation Proclamation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 31st,2016

.. the Proclamation was a political act , yes ..

.. but , in terms of the Civil War , it was a military order …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics.com/Video]..
.. [link] to the idiotic comments …

.. it was only effective in areas under the control of Union troops . Slaves [ergo , freedmen] could use it to state that they were then free , but if they were not in an area under Union control , then they were out of luck ….

.. at least , until Union troops came , or , the war eventually ended , which it did [in April of 1865]…

… So College Kids are Afraid of a Little Bit of ” Chalk ” [#Emory University][#political chalk drawings]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 28th,2016

.. each university and college in our nation has its odd and unusual traditions . different . They have one , though , that is bound to get them into a great deal of trouble ..

.. so , what could that be ?? ..

.. simple . Chalk Drawings . In this case , Chalk drawings of a political nature ..

.. Emory and its admin have a habit of letting this stuff go . They tend to be in sympathy with the students , many of whom make the drawings in support of issues or candidates , or causes . Well , not this time ..

.. [LInk] to the blog post …

.. the conservative and GOP – leaning students on Emory ‘ s campus have now had enough . So , they decided to toake action . quite a bit of it , to be simple ..

.. They drew chalk drawings in support of presidential candidate Donald Trump . That , however , has set off alarm bells …

…Be Careful What You Wish For [#Impeachment]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 4th,2014

.. you just might get it ..

.. right now , the DemoCraps are conducting a fundraising marathon – to – beat – all over the ” I ” word …. not a big shock …

.. amazingly enough , even senior White House aides [including DannyBoy Pfeiffer] and FLOTUS herself are getting in on the act …

.. [h/t — WashingtonExaminer]..
.. [link] to the column ..

.. well , after the first of the year , once the GOP takes over Congress , do not be surprised if it actually comes to pass , given Obama ‘ s actions …

.. the House lawsuit may well do some good . It will , however , take a great deal of time . Crane v Napolitano had promise , but it has died , for now , unless it revives on appeal ….

.. the best case , inadvertantely , is the Arizona case over illegals and driver licenses . Az Gov Jan Brewer has taken this on as a crusade , and her successor [likely a Republican] hopefully will follow . This case will be a big issue in the Az Governor ‘ s election , and that will force the issue . This one , ideally could use a conflict with another circuit , but the Supremes may well take it on themselves …

.. if Obama pulls the stunt that I expect on illegals [exec action on legalization] , I am sure that he will pull it . It is just a question of whether of when he does it ….

.. When he does , the reaction is going to be a honey . It might goose Dem turnout a little , but it will enrage Republicans and Independents . I would bet that even a fair number of Dems will be pissed off by the manuveur . Then calls for the ” I ” word will explode , I will bet …

.. if he does , my voice will be one of them ! …
