… Voter I.D. is Moving in Ohio [#voter fraud]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 30th,2016

.. unfortunately , it will not be in time for this fall ‘ s elections …

.. the state legislature is taking up another election reform bill . Especially since the GOP will still be in control , and Jon Husted [GOP SecState] will likely be the chief elections officer , the legislature does not have to double – time the issue …

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

.. the question will likely brought up again in the new edition of the legislature that will take office in January . Kasich will still be around [having been easily re – elected], so getting the bill thru will not be a problem . Setting it up for the early voting period will get interesting , though , to see how they require documentation to be submitted …

.. it will hit me . I have a driver ‘ s license , a state i.d. , and a US passport . It is plenty enough documentation for what will be required …

— [update]– hopefully , it will move in the post – election special session . it is possible , but it is not likely ….

.. a much more likely possibility is that the new legislature will take it up . Amazingly enough , the drubbing that the DemoCraps took at the polls on November 4th , 2014 had the predictable result — the Dems lost even more seats in the legislature , if that were possible . now the Dems are down to only 34 Dems in the State House , and 9 in the State Senate …

.. what that will allow is a provision of the Ohio Constitution , one that allows the Legislature to adopt a bill with a 3/5ths majority . It is usually done to adopt and pass a bill as an emergency [in a big hurry] . In this case , it is not needed . This provision is used to block any possible initiative or referendum that could possibly be mounted by interest groups to try to repeal the bill .  With a 3/5ths vote , un – uh … that move is not allowed …

.. expect a court fight (again) over this one . The NAALCP and the ACLU will go hyper – spastic over it . Knowing the ObamaCraps are still around , the Holder Department of InJustice will probably stick its nose in on their behalf …

.. someone should remind them … by a solid [7 to 2] precedent in Indiana [under the Voting Rights Act] , Voter ID has been found kopasetic by the US Supreme Court , so , enough already …

… Victory in Court [#7th Circuit]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 26th,2014

.. the state of Wisconsin gets its Voter ID law back …

.. better yet , the court was very harsh , both on the district court judge , and on the plaintiffs in the case …

.. [h/t — RightWisconsin.com]..
.. [link] to the court decision …

.. the district court judge [a Bill Clinton appointee] was reamed out by the appeallate judges . The appeals judges bawled out the judge for completely and totally ignoring both pending 7th Circuit precedent , as well as US Supreme Court precedent ….

.. Stare Decisis [court precedent] is important for a court . A judge is supposed to follow court precedent . A judge is supposed to have a very , very important reason (or set of reasons) to ignore it or overturn it . In the Wisconsin Voter ID case , the circuit judge totally blew it off . That is a very big blunder for a district court judge . Higher ups can try that stunt , but not the lower court ….

.. also , the appeallate judges were very harsh in their judgements towards the plaintiffs . The plaintiffs argue both disparate impact theory , as well as Voting Rights Act violations . The judges were totally on point on crushing both arguments . The big problem in both cases is that intent is required . Disparate Impact theory does not even require intent . So , out the door it goes …

… It Really Makes You Wonder [OMB nominee to HHS] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 21st,2014

.. about all the lying that has been going on by POTUS …

.. Sylvia Mathews Burwell has been nominated by the First Knucklehead to be his new H.H.S. Secretary , to succeed the current butcher , Kathleen G. Sebelius . Burwell is going to , at a result , have to answer some very interesting questions at her confirmation hearing . Even with the nuclear option having been pressed , Burwell knows what is coming . She has to play ball with the GOP , otherwise they can make life very unconfortable for her ..

.. especially now for Dingy Harry . After what has happened with Debo Adegbile (denied a slot at InJustice) , the Senate DummyCraps realize that they will be on the spot . More so with ObamaCrapCare and H.H.S. , along with the Murder mandate (illegal abortion coverage) . They will be on the spot .

.. Marc Thiessen should know . He was a lead speechwriter for former President George W. Bush . He knows how things work . and how a real President is supposed to act . Our current POTUS is totally clueless as to what he is doing …

.. [h/t — WashingtonComPost]..
.. [link] to the opinion column ..

.. the career staff @ O.M.B. fact – checks and correct the boo – boos in Presidential and Vice – Presidential speeches . At least then there are no excuses when there is a mistake or a factual error ….. When there is , you then know who to blame ? …

.. the political people at the ObamaCrap White House , and POTUS and VPOTUS themselves …

.. also , it will not be just the candidates in 2014 .  the 2016ers will be held to account , as well . The economy is due for a recession , and our current budget situation makes it difficult to deal with that . It will cake the 2016 candidates with tons of mud — Miz Hillary included — if she runs …
