Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 24th,2016

.. the French may have turned a corner , for once ..

.. France was once again re – educated about the principles , one of which stands out …

.. freedom is not free . It requires eternal vigilance for our liberties …

.. I may not be wild at times about the French Government . That does not apply about anything else French , though …

… Ruth Bader Ginsberg may be a Radical [#US Supreme Court]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 9th,2016

.. but she is not stupid .

.. she has seen how the confirmation process has evolved over the years . Especially since her own , and those of her colleagues …

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

.. after what ol’ Dingy Harry Reid has done with the nuclear option , it will be extraordinarily difficult for any confirmation for any position in the remaining days of the Obama Administration . You cannot unring the bell . It is that simple …

.. If His Lordship thinks that he can get a raging liberal past the US Senate , no matter who controls it , forget it . Even if the Dems control it , it will put enormous pressure on the moderates and those in Red States to vote against the nominee . You can bet on virtually united GOP opposition …

.. Biden has to explain to Obama , you cannot and will not get certain nominees past the Senate . The U.S. Senate is not the Illinois Senate . The GOP nationally is not the GOP in Illinois …

… If Loretta Lynch has lost John McCain [#AG nomination]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 28th,2015

.. then the effort to confirm her is indeed in deep trouble .

.. the GOP now controls the US Senate . The DemoCraps do not . The DummyCraps can stammer , huff , puff , and try to blow a house down all that they want , but as long as the majority holds firm , Lynch ‘ s nomination will not receive a vote . At the very least , not anytime soon ..

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. right now , the nomination is in real trouble . US Sen John McCain [R-Az] has come out openly against her nomination . Much more so is why he did . He has stated specifically that her position on POTUS ‘ so – called Executive Action on Immigration [which came out during questioning for her confirmation hearings] is what made him come out so openly against her …

.. She will not get a vote anytime soon . A good number of committee chairmen are against her . I suspect most of the Senate leadership has decided to vote her nomination down . But the Majority Leader ? That I am not sure of , yet . if he decides to oppose her , then her nomination is effectively dead , no matter how much His Lordship and the Senate DemoCraps protest …

… the MahaRushie may be Right [#about Scott Walker]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 4th,2015

.. Scott Walker has some serious guts , er , balls , that is for sure ..

.. he has presenatted a solid political program for the betterment of Wisconsin . The voters of the state has elected him , time and again , and continue to believe in him . So , maybe his state is changing …

.. Wisconsin is no Blue state . At most , it is a White state , maybe even a ” Pink ” state . So , indeed , it is changing …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the MahaRushie ‘ s commentary …

.. maybe Walker will run for the GOP nomination for President in 2016 . It will be no easy task , that is for sure . But , with a good campaigner , and a good message , and a fair bit of luck , that candidate will have a decent chance of getting the nod . Scott Walker may well be that man ..

.. the DemoCraps have to be sweating bricks over Scott Walker . If Walker does happen to win the nomination , he would have an excellent chance to win the White House in 2016 . He could fairly well pick off a fair number of Blue states that the Dems usually carry , and put others into play . That would force the Dems to psend money where they cannot afford to do so …

… A Trip Back in Time [Clinton White House memos]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 26th,2014

.. this one is about the confirmation of Supreme Court associate justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg …

.. there is a great deal of grief about Ginsberg and her ” extreme ” liberal views . Well , if she were that extreme , then why nominate her in the first place …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. time and history has proven them right . Ginsberg has proven herself to be an extremist liberal lunatic . There is little likelihood of her and her ilk being appointed to replace her …
