… the I.R.S. is Doing What [#secret deal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 29th,2016

.. you have got to be kidding .

.. making a secret deal is bad enough . Doing it with the anti – religious radicals at the Freedom from Religion Foundation is even worse …

.. What could be even worse ? ..

.. these two parties working to enforce a blatanly unconstitutional law . That is the definition of worse . The Johnson amendment was a creation of then – Senate Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson . He hated the guts of a number of Texas pastors who were blasting him and his policies . So , he developed a way to work to ” silence ” them . Thus the Johnson Amendment …

.. given the legislative history , and the bill ‘ s intent , it is clearly unconstitutional . It was intended to silence people who had and have every perfect right to speak out in public . Even if they want to politic from the pulpit …. Given past and present practice , the DummyCraps are hardly one to complain about it . They get away with bloody murder every election season , so zip it . Quit complaining about it . Strike the damn amendment …

… Palmer v D.C. is on hold [#temporarily]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 5th,2014

.. not a big shock ..

.. the courts are giving the District of Criminals and the City Council a chance to pass a new gun bill …

.. however , the original judge still has the case . It is Senior Federal District Court Judge Frederick Scullin , of the Northern District of New York …

.. oh , a little more info on the case — this one has lounged around for more than 5 years . The local judges on the DC bench [more than a few] screwed around with it , doing various stalling tactics …

.. eventually , an appeal was pushed to the Supreme Court Justice overseeing the D.C. Circuit . Big Oops . That justice just happens to be Chief Justice Roberts . He cracked the whip , and reassigned the case . Especially sending it on to a senior judge who is a noted and speedy hard case . Nice ! …

.. that judge will be watching the D.C. political games . Especially with elections in November . He will likely crack down on the District , and do the legal handiwork himself , if the D.C. City Council plays around with the case …
