… US Supreme Court to D.C. Circuit Court [#Spank]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 18th,2016

.. we were watching you guys …

.. so , don’t even bother farting around with the Halbig case anymore …

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

.. the U.S. Supreme Court granted cert in the other case [King v. Burwell] , but you had to know , they were watching the knuckleheads at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals . In particular , the three radicals that Dingy Harry stuffed on there courtesy of the nuclear option …

.. in total contravention of court precedent , the full Appeals Court granted en – banc review of the Halbig case [the ObamaCrapCare tax subsidies case] . As a result , a thoroughly reasoned Halbig decision was vacated . You think that the Supremes were not watching these antics ?!?! …

.. well , it is obvious that they were . Also , the recent ruling in Oklahoma [Pruitt v Burwell] has gone to the Fifth Circuit , slightly creating a conflict ….

.. what the Supremes do by doing this is : [Spank] , [Spank] , [Spank] … and [also , don’t bother any further with the case] …

.. this is a public rebuke , with a message that is designed to be heard loud and clear : do not do this kind of stunt again …

… One of the Donald ‘ s BesT Strengths [#the art of the deal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 30th,2016

.. simple : persuasion .

.. right now the Donald may noT be liked very well .Unlike Miz Hillary ‘ he is trusted . She is most definitely not.That is a huge ,huge difference when it comes to campaigning ..

.. to make the deal , in order to close the deal , you have to persuade the other party . That is where Donald Trump is a master and agenius at making deals . You do not always have to like the other guy or gal . But , if you do trust  them [at least affair bir] , you will be willing to listen to him /her .Then ,you make the sale [to earn someone ‘ s vote].

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

.. ddoes it make it certain that theDonald is going to win .Far from it . But it ggives him an inside edge in making the sale to voters that Miz Hillary cannot match ..

.. I wish him luck ..

… I have Heard of Low Things by the ObamaCraps [#bibi]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 15th,2016

.. but this …

.. something like this just does not get out without clearance from the top …

.. there are leaks , and , in the case like this [especially this] , it is an ” authorized leak ” …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]…
.. [link] to the news column …

.. an authorized leak is one that is meant to send a message . This was sent , and it was meant to get PM Netanyahu ‘ s attention …

.. loud and clear …

.. I am just amazed that the ObamaCraps are that stupid and that arrogant to do such a thing . They do not understand the man [Bibi Netanyahu] at all . Not one bit …

… No , Chuck , The Prognosis is Worse [#Obama foreign policy]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,January 2nd,2016

.. POTUS is making good ol’ Jimmy Cahtah look like both a choirboy and a genius , by comparison …

.. yea , you can bet he and the gang are doing grievous damage to the DummyCraps reputation , especially on foreign policy …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the comments …

.. things are so bad , immigration has flipped from being a Democrap – favoured issue [D + 8] to a Republican one [R + 7] … Ouch ! … so , the effects are spreading to other issues …

.. it could gradually eat away at Democrap advantages in other areas . If immigration has flipped as an issue , then others can too ….

… the Political Attack [#Trump][#Bill Clinton]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 29th,2015

.. I wonder — is a political strike on Bill Clinton [by the Donald] such a bright idea ?? ..

.. I do believe that it is morally a good idea .. Bill Clinton was and still is a moral degenerate . He has tried to rehab his reputation , and has , to a point , succeeded . But , it still leaves him vulnerable ..

.. [h/t — news.Yahoo.com]..

… A Really Dumb Move [#Mass Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 22nd,2014

.. even for Massachusetts …

.. I wonder what Gov. Deval Patrick is up to . The Dem nominee , AG Martha Coakley is having a hard enough time as it it . She trails GOP nominee [and businessman] Charlie baker by about 4 to 6 points . Anywhere else , it can be a shock . In the People ‘ s Republic , it is earth – shaking …

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

.. even the denizens of Massachusetts do not like featherbedding and protecting one ‘ s political supporters . Even if it involves putting them under union protection . The state budget is big enough as it is . Adding more flunkies ?!?! … are you kidding ? …

.. Also , Patrick is preparting pardons . Not what AG Coakley needs at this time in the political season ….

… Big Blunder in Colorado [#Mark udall]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 14th,2014

. to date , Udall has been doing a decent job on Cory Gardiner on the pro – life debate . Now , he has really blundered …

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

.. mark udall has now come out solidly in fAVOUR of late – term abotions . What a botch ! …. Opinion has moved to fairly strongly in favour of the pro – life position , it is very solidly in favour of the pro – life position where it comes to late – term abortions … people most strongly do not like them …

.. and now , Udall has come out strongly in favour of them . Big Whoops !! …

… Dandy Political Commercial , But … [#long]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 3rd,2014

.. Elbert Guillory is terrific ..

.. the only problem with this commercial is its length …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the political commercial …

.. some interest groups with some $$ should buy into this guy , and his campaign . He is fantastic …

.. this commercial should be re – shot , and slightly re – scored …

.. otherwise , it is great …

.. it will dig into the Democratic vote . One sure way to get the Black vote to begin to ” crack ” is to have an officeholder [one of their own] to convince them to try and have them give the GOP a chance . His own story is the best reason why ….

… Bruce Rauner is Still the Favourite [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 9th,2014

.. even though the race might be tightening …

.. yes , the polls say that Rauner ‘ s lead is down to 8 points . It also now takes into account that there is a libertarian in the race …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the news / poll …

.. it is rare for libertarians to run in Illinois . Yes , they do have an organized Libertarian party there . Given the circumstances , the DemoCraps would attack and demagogue Bruce Rauner on almost anything …

.. it just reminds the GOP to keep its eye on the ball , and its intent on its campaign message . Adjust the message , if needed . Pound on Quinn for the slimebombs , when needed . He deserves it . But remember what is at stake …

.. Illinois ‘ future , and that of our country …

…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 ! …

… Waaah !! [#childish White House]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 31st,2014

.. a politician wants to have message discipline , yes .

.. but sometimes , you will have people speaking out ..

.. in this case , it is Congressman Henry Cuellar of Texas . Cuellar is a Democrat and a latino , and I believe a district that is extremely long along the border . you have one hell of a mess , and you expect him to stay silent , and parrot the party line . In Cuellar ‘ s case , to his credit , he stood up , and spoke out …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the news clip ..

..There are hundreds , maybe thousands of people coming accrss the us – Mexico border every day . Yet , the federal government does nothing . Nothing . Our border is not secure at all , you damn idiots ..

.. so , what does the ObamaCrap White House do ? take Cuellar to the politician ‘ s ” woodshed . ” He was ” admonished ” by the White House . So what does Cuellar do ? He pipes up again …

>> well done , Henry Cuellar …

… Border Crisis ” Nationalizes ” Election campaign [#illegal kids]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 30th,2014

.. when you drop kids in all over the place , so what do you expect ?? ..

.. a bloody mess ..

.. could it get worse ? ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. yes , it can . But how ? If those ” illegal kids ” start committing serious crimes , that is how …

.. it is dragging DemoCraps around the country into the fray … and it is giving the GOP a case of ” political jujitsu ” in reverse …

.. usually , immigration reform has been a Democrap issue . Not now , with all of these illegal kids being dropped all over the place . People are rebelling against it , and it is giving almost every Dem grief over the issue . It thus highlights border security , loud and clear , in a way that people can easily understand . It then ” flips ” the issue over to the GOP , and hits the Latino vote in an unexpected way …

.. The GOP has had to work to earn Latino ‘ s votes . Some Republican candidates campaign messages have not helped the effort . However , much of the Latino community is culturally very similar to the Cuban community . If one works at it , hard enough , eventually one can earn someone ‘ s trust . It takes hard work and effort , but it can be done …

.. also , the ” reverse jujitsu . ” Usually , you have to make the move to ” flip ” the issue to your advantage , and turn it against your opponent . In this case , the issue flipped the opponent , and dropped the issue into one ‘ s lap . It thus does it ” in reverse …. “

… the DemoCraps hardly need Someone like Lizzie [#nut Warren]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 25th,2014

.. so , they really do not need a lunatic like tin Lizzie ..

.. she may well run anyway ..

.. Miz Hillary cannot ignore her . As much as she might want to , she cannot . The really loonie left is looking for someone to glom around , and Miz Lizzie just might be it …

.. if she does , and wins , she could have even worse trouble on her hands . Just try a challenge from communist Senator Bernie Sanders [C-Vt] on for size . He could make an independent run , or even give it a go as a third – party candidate …

.. in either case , the Dems are in deep dutch . Presuming the GOP elects an electable candidate , then the GOP will be well – placed to sweep to victory ….

… A Shellacking the DemoCraps so Richly Deserve …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 17th,2014

.. but , we will have to work like the dickens to give it to them …

.. remember , GOTV [get out the vote] was a big problem last time (2012) . The Romney folks plan for GOTV megabombed . It cost us quite a few states [Oh , Fl , Va , Co , Ia , Mi , etc]… possibly the election …

.. [h/t — TAS] …
.. [link] to the column ..

.. the DummyCraps will pull any dirty stunt , fair or foul [likely , foul] , to win . It is their nature . So , prepare the shitshields , we will need them …

.. a good starting point is Karl Rove ‘ s 96 – hour plan . It worked beautifully for 2 presidential elections , especially in 2004 . He is not an idiot . It just needs to be updated and streeeeetcccchhheeeedddd out over 5 weeks [the rough standard for early voting] ….

.. We meet and then beat the Dems in early voting , then our superior turnout effort for the end of the campaign will do its magic . It has worked before . It can and will work again ….

… Bruce Braley cannot help It [#foot in mouth disease]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 15th,2014

.. right now , Bruce Braley has the political field pretty much to himself .

.. he really needs it ..

.. after several now – famous mega – gaffes , he was originally the favourite to win Tom Harkin ‘ s open Senate seat . Well , that is now well past . He is now the narrow underdog …

.. his Republican opponent , Joni Ernst , is on annual duty , training for the next 2 weeks with the Iowa National Guard . So , she cannot campaign . But other surrogates can , just not as well . So , Braley has the field …

.. so , what happens ??

.. Braley gets busted … complaining …. over a damn chicken …

.. [h/t — theIowaRepublican]..
.. [link] to the blog article …

.. absolutely beautiful , Bruce . You have the political field to yourself , and what happens ? You make a complete and total idiot of yourself … over a damn chicken . In Iowa , that is a real , really bad move . Chickens running around are not all that uncommon …

.. Big Deal … or so you might think …

.. I re – read the article …. It is much , much worse …

.. first , it is not Braley ‘ s primary home … it is his vacation home . It is in a development community that is a typical vacation home community . Except some of the folks use the area as their primary residence …

braley-lake-home

.. next , the neighbor who has the problem chickens is a therapist . A psychologist . Whoops … She is also an Air  Force veteran , and uses the chickens as therapy tools , you dummy Bruce ..

.. Braley complained to the community association . So , it told the therapist she had a month to crack the whip  , so  to speak , on her chickens , and properly enclose them . Evidently , she did , or is doing so …

.. but that was not good  enough for Braley …

.. what did he do ? he threatened to sue …. which figures , for a trial lawyer …

.. he did not think that this would get out …. but , oh boy , did it ever . The timing  could not be worse . Ernst is on National Guard duty , and Braley makes an idiot of himself …. nice contrast …

… The Bergdahl Case sets a Terrible Precedent …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 28th,2014

.. Bowe Bergdahl is an Army Sergeant who was captured on the battlefield by a faction of the Taliban in the summer of 2009 . He was captured , fair and square , evidently , by the enemy , and has been held captive ever since then …

.. now , Bergdahl has been freed . The ObamaCrap Administraton has made a political deal , trading 5 high value Talibani detainees at Guantanamo Bay , Cuba in order for Sgt Bergdahl ‘ s release . Why ? Why did they do this ? For What reason(s) ? …

.. I feel and think that this act sets a terrible precedent for US policy . It puts a price on the head of every US soldier , sailor , airman , and Marine . It sends a horrible message to friend and foe alike , that we will negotiate with an adversary in order to free our people . Doing a deal with POWs is one thing , but dealing with someone who is a hostage is something else . It is very , very , wrong …

.. We should have worked harder to locate a POW . Any POW . If and when we locate them , then we go in and get them . We make it clear to the enemy that we will hold them accountable for the safety and security of our people , and will retaliate and penalize those who brutalize and torture our people . Also , we should send a message , that we reserve the right to come after our people . Our people are a free people , and we will pay any price , short of negotiation , to get them back . We reserve the right to come in after them …

… Can Elan Carr pull off the Impossible ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 18th,2014

.. not likely , but maybe ..

.. Carr is running in Ca33 , which is Henry Waxman ‘ s old seat . Waxman is retiring after decades [almost 40 years] in the House . This seat is about as liberal as it gets . Apart from Manhattan ‘ s Upper West Side , there are not many places quite like LA ‘ s west side … Brentwood , BelAir , Beverly Hills , and Malibu , up to Santa Monica . The usual job description for a Congressman is GOPers need not apply …

elan carr (gop CA33)(waxman ' s seat)

.. [h/t — HollywoodReporter]..

.. [link] to the piece …

.. However , that did not faze Carr . Carr is now a local small businessman , after a career as a gang – related prosecutor with the Los Angeles County District Attorney ‘ s Office . He also was a military reservist , and saw duty in the Iraq war ….

.. For any Republican to have a real chance , it helps to be Jewish . Carr is , and is Conservative Jewish . That helps , because an Orthodox Jew would be dead meat in this district . Reform Judaism , which is likely strong in this district , may well be willing to support a Conservative jew , especially a businessman and a war veteran ..

.. the odds are not good , but this race bears watching . I do intend to …

.. [update] — Carr is trailing in the polls , but not by much …. by about 6 points . It will be interesting to see how much interest , especially from the media , that this race gets …

.. with early voting , this one could be close . Bob Turner pulled it off in NYC (in Queens) in 2010 against Anthony Weiner , when Weiner quit all of a sudden …

.. this one bears watching …

… Ouch — Israel is Sending Us a Message …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 2nd,2014

.. and Moshe Ya ‘ alon strikes again .

.. they have little to no confidence in our nation ‘ s policy or our leadership . To be honest , why should they ? POTUS and VPOTUS do not even know the meaning of words like leadership , honour , dignity , policy , and consistency . If they did , they would not be in so much trouble …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the minister ‘ s blast …

.. PM Bibi is sending us a loud and clear message through his defence minister . It will likely hit its intended target , since POTUS could not give a fig about Bibi or Israel …

.. the odds of an Israeli military strike on Iran continue to climb higher and higher …

… Alex Sink must Have a Death Wish …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 7th,2014

.. boy , what a stupid comment to make .

.. Alexandra Sink is a congressional candidate . You might guess that she is a DemoCrap . She is running in a special election [March 11th , 2014] for the seat of the late congresscritter C.W. ” Bill ” Young . Young was a moderate Republican (in other words , a R.I.N.O.) who made this district his home for all of his life .

.. Bill Young died late last year . Governor Rick Scott called a special election for March 11th , and Sink and GOPer David Roby ended up being the candidates in the race for this district [Florida 13] . Florida 13 is no easy task . It is suburban turf in and around Tampa Bay and Saint Petersburg .

.. Normally , it is a moderately Democrat – leaning district . Young , being the long – time chairman of the Appropriations Committee , would normally be the only GOPer who could hold this district for the Republicans . But this year is no normal political year …. the question is , can Sink hold the district for the Dems , or will Roby flip it back to the GOP ??

.. ObamaCrapCare is weighing things down for the DemoCraps . They are getting nailed by an unprecedented TV ad barrage all around the country . Now , they are getting it here . Plus , AFP and other groups are also getting the free media from the news coverage of the ad war . This time , for the Dems , the shoe is on the other foot .

.. You would think that Sink would learn to discipline her mouth and her campaign message . She has been around the block before , and she should gosh darned know better . She was the State of Florida ‘ s Chief Financial Officer , and was the 2010 nominee for Governor against Rick Scott . Guess what ?? …

.. she stuck her foot in her mouth , big time …. she got a little flip with her mouth , and made a potentially huge gaffe … see here …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..

.. [link] to the campaign blooper …

.. you can bet that Roby and his campaign will have this blunder up on the airwaves all over the place . This kind of gaffe is a gift to Roby , and hopefully he will take maximum advantage of it …
