… I support Kate ‘ s Law [#Bill O ‘ Reilly][#the O ‘ Reilly Factor][#Talking Points Memo]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 20th,2017

.. I fully and completely support Bill ‘ s proposal ..

.. Bill has proposed Kate ‘ s Law , a bill to deal with criminal illegal aliens . What this bill would do is mandate a 5 – year prison term for any illegal alien who is deported , and then crosses illegally back into the United States ..

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

.. I would change it , somewhat . I would make it start at 10 years . Also , for every documented repetition of illegal border crossing [by a criminal illegal alien] , then add another 10 years . Even better yet , make it in solitary confinement ..

.. that should send a message to those folks , especially the criminal [felon] illegal aliens . The message is that we mean business ..

… Why a Sanctuary City ?!?! [#San Francisco][#Francisco Sanchez]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 10th,2016

.. because the lilly – livered liberals and socials wanted to create a haven for illegal immigrants . They do not want them to be deported at all . Thusly , they become a ” sanctuary city , ” and their city officials and public safety forces do not co – operate with the federal government [in general] ….

.. and the Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency [in particular] …

.. [h/t —]..

.. do these idiots realize the mess that they have created ? Especially creating a magnet for illegal immigrant , in particular the criminal aliens …

… Kate Steinle was No Ordinary Statistic [#murder][#sancturary city]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 2nd,2016

.. yes , she was murdered [recently] in San Francisco . She was walking with her family on San Fran ‘ s waterfront when she was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant on Pier 14 . Yes , you bet it is a tragedy !! ..

.. what makes it a much bigger tragedy is that this thug is an illegal immigrant . His name is Francisco Sanchez . He was deported to Mexico not once , not twice , but FIVE times , for crying out loud . You would think that any city with some horse sense would bag him and ship him out in order to depaort him …

kate steinle

.. but Nooooo ! . You see , San Francisco is what is know as a ” sanctuary ” city . These cities refuse to have any contact or co – operation with the Federal Government where it concerns immigration and immigrations issues ..

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

.. so her death is an added tragedy . It is one that did not have to happen . If the officials of San Francisco did enforce the law , as they are legally obligated to do , then it is realistically probable that Kate Steinle would likely still be alive . Unfortunately , she is not …

.. given the prominence that immigration is likely to play in this coming year ‘ s presidential race . you can bet to see the faces of those like kate in campaign commercials on the immigration issue , especially where it concerns illegal immigration …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 27th,2016

.. Kate is of course [was] the 32 – year – old professional woman who was walking on San Francisco ‘ s waterfront with her father . It seems that a repeat illegal immigrant [Francisco Sanchez] had other plans . He shot her with a powerful pistol that he had stolen a month before , and she died …

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

.. I have been out of contact for the last couple of days . Yes , I have been following the news , especially about Kate Steinle . But , Wow , is their ever an uproar , one that even I did not even forsee ..

.. now comes the recriminations . Boy , there will be plenty of them , and for a great many parties to come …

… Those Idiots in California have Done It Again …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 12th,2013

.. no , unbelievably , it is not on taxes , or on spending …

… or , even on even more debt …

… it is fertility treatments , not for married couples . That at least would make sense ….

… not even for POS (people of the opposite sex) … they did not have a  right to it , before . It may not be moral , but at least there is some kind of sense to it …

… it is fertility treatments for same – sex couples . How insane is that . Earth to the People ‘ s Republic of California , you need the intervention of a third party , no matter what , for a same – sex couple to have (conceive of) a child . It is just physically impossible for them to do it any other way , no matter what .

… same – sex relationships are , to me , immoral and unnatural . If God had intended for us to have same – sex couplings , He would have Constructed us diffferently . We are not , that is for sure .

… How insane is that . Guys and gals , it does not work that way . Come back to the straight and narrow …

… These Cities should try Studying Constitutional Law [Richmond , CA ]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 12th,2013

.. it is abundantly obvious that by their actions , the city fathers of Richmond , California , have not . They have chosen to completely ignore California ‘ s constitution , as well as the U.S. Constitution .

.. These numbskulls want to intervene in a private proceeding : that being between a homeowner and their mortgage banker . The mortgage in question is what is called “underwater,” or that the value of the home is less than that of the relevant mortgage . What the city wants to do is seize it , take it away from the bank [forcing it to take a loss] , and work through another private party (with political connections , of course) to issue the homeowner a new mortgage at a reduced value , thus placing the mortgage possibly “above water.” The issuer would be the new holder , and would make a killing from the added interest , plus the added fees . nice stunt .

.. No , not so nice . These mortgages would not be “insured” into the secondary market , so that the issuer could get money to try to repeat the stunt . The city of Richmond obviously does not have the scratch , and is being used for its use of its eminent domain power . How gross of an abuse of power do you all think that this is ?

.. Big time . The banks are not all that popular , I will grant you that . That is for sure . They are considered people , and their investors are most certainly people . These folks have rights , and their constitutional rights have been damaged . The courts are real lunatic out there in CA , but they are not that loonie , at least that I would think . Also , the U.S. Supreme Court would come down on them , and hard . There is no way in hell that this action would stand .

Richmond Eminent Domain Plan Goes to Court Showdown

            By Karen Gullo –             Sep 12, 2013

BlackRock Inc. (BLK), Pacific Investment Management Co., DoubleLine Capital LP and other bondholders are asking a court to block a proposal by Richmond, California, to seize underwater mortgages through eminent domain.

With this week’s vote by Richmond’s city council to press ahead with an effort its mayor claims will help homeowners avoid foreclosure and fend off blight, the dispute between the northern California oil refinery town and Wall Street moved today to the federal courthouse in San Francisco.

U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer is hearing arguments from both sides on whether to order the city to halt efforts to use eminent domain to take over loans. He will also consider the city’s request to find that the bondholders went to court prematurely and dismiss their claims because the city council hasn’t approved the plan.

A ruling favoring bondholders, who sued the city through their bank trustees, would dissuade other cities from following in Richmond’s footsteps, said Dan Schechter, a law professor at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. A decision for Richmond won’t encourage other municipalities to follow suit because it wouldn’t deal directly with the merits of bondholders’ claims that the Richmond plan is unconstitutional, he said.

“The court will hold that no injunctive relief is available at this time. That doesn’t mean the bondholders are without remedy,” Schechter said by phone. “If no injunction is issued, it would preserve the status quo.”

Troubled Mortgages

The city council voted at about 2 a.m. yesterday to move forward with a program to reduce the principal on troubled mortgages. Under the plan proposed by Steven Gluckstern’s Mortgage Resolution Partners LLC, the city would seize the loans and refinance them, providing borrowers with built-in equity, to avert foreclosures.

San Francisco-based Mortgage Resolution Partners would provide services and arrange for private investment funds that would profit by buying the loans for less than property values.

The company is shopping around the plan to several communities; Richmond is the only one to pursue the plan, City Manager Bill Lindsay told the council Sept. 10.

The city’s plan violates constitutional protections for private contracts, interstate commerce and the taking of private property for public use without just compensation, according to complaints filed by Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC), Deutsche Bank AG and Bank of New York Mellon Corp. (BK) on behalf of investors that hold bonds backed by the Richmond mortgages.

Banks’ Attorney

“If Richmond is allowed to proceed, other local governments would likely follow suit, with the result that losses across residential mortgage backed securities trusts and their investors would exceed billions of dollars,” Rocky Tsai, an attorney for the banks, said in a court filing.

The Wells Fargo lawsuit is “harassment,” and an injunction should be rejected because the city council hasn’t voted to use eminent domain, and even if it did, the banks could fight back in the court that will decide matters in the seizure proceeding, Scott Kronland, an attorney for the city, said in court filings.

“The parade of horribles the banks invoke are unfounded,”he said.

The cases are Wells Fargo Bank v. City of Richmond, 13-3663, and Bank of New York Mellon v. City of Richmond, 13-3664, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Francisco).

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 13th,2013

.. and , gues what ??

.. It is fun time for the good guys and gals on the Right . Especially when Miz Hillary sticks her nose into a local issue , and also sticks her foot in her mouth in the process . Somebody should remind her that legal id (ie , a driver ‘ s license or (free) state id)) is needed for many everyday common tasks . It is not racisit , or a racial act , to ask for one .

.. Miz Hillary ‘ s comments are racially oriented , and very likely racist themselves . See for yourself …

Hillary Clinton calls for restoration of voter rights suppressed by Supreme Court’s Shelby decision

by Meteor BladesFollow

HIllary Clinton speaking at ABA convention in S.F. 2013. (posted by MB)

Hillary Clinton spoke of the need to restore voting rights taken away by Supreme Court’s Shelby ruling.

In what she later announced would the first in a series of policy-oriented speeches she will deliver over the coming months on the “strains on our social contract,” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a passionate and wide-ranging address to the attendees of the American Bar Association’s annual convention in San Francisco Monday, telling them of the need to restore the protections of the Voting Rights Act. She excoriated efforts in some states to deal with the “phantom epidemic of election fraud” as a means of keeping minority and younger voters away from the polls.She pointed out that in 2013 so far, more than 80 bills restricting voting rights have been introduced in 31 states. She singled out four states in particular: North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Texas.

“Now, not every obstacle is related to race, but anyone who says that racial discrimination is no longer a problem in American elections must not be paying attention.And despite the best efforts of many well-intentioned election officials, discrepancies in resources across precincts and polling stations still disproportionately impact African Americans, Latinos and young voters.” […]

“Unless the hole opened up by the Supreme Court’s ruling is fixed […] citizens will be disenfranchised, victimized by the law instead of served by it, and that progress, that historical progress toward a more perfect union, will go backwards instead of forward,” Clinton said.

The ABA’s House of Delegates approved a resolution Monday urging Congress to take quick action to restore provisions of the Voting Rights Act that the Supreme Court gutted in its Shelby County v. Holder ruling.
