… POTUS supports Hamas [#is he insane] ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 19th,2014

.. POTUS and his cronies support the so – called Palestinian Unity government . This is one that includes a terrorist group [Hamas] that is completely and thoroughly dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the mass murder of all Israelis . So what do these goonie birds do ? ..

.. they kidnap 3 innocents from the West Bank [Judea and Sumaria] . One of whom is an American citizen .

.. [h/t –– TruthRevolt]..

.. what is Obama thinking ? In particular , giving those bastards financial and any kind of moral support . Most of all , and most galling , is what POTUS is doing is against our law . It prohibits the financial and other support of terrorist groups and whatnot …

Funding Hamas is a direct violation of United States law:

(a) Prohibited Activities.—

(1) Unlawful conduct.— Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. To violate this paragraph, a person must have knowledge that the organization is a designated terrorist organization (as defined in subsection (g)(6)), that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorist activity (as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), or that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorism (as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989).

On Wednesday, a day before the kidnapping, 88 senators sent a bi-partisan letter to the Obama administration demanding that the United States cease its assistance to the government:

Dear Mr. President:

We are appreciative of your Administration’s dedication to achieving a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unfortunately, the recent formation of a Palestinian Authority unity government supported by Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization that has never publicly accepted the Quartet principles, represents a serious setback to efforts to achieve peace. We are gravely concerned that the formation of this government and President Abbas’ renewed effort to upgrade the status of the Palestinians within international organizations will jeopardize direct negotiations with Israel to achieve a two-state solution.

By its actions and inaction, Hamas has demonstrated it is not a partner for peace. Hamas has openly called for Israel’s destruction and last month Hamas leaders again repeated their refusal to meet recognized international demands: recognition of Israel, renunciation of terror, and acceptance of previous Israel-PLO agreements.

Recent events have consequences as to U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority as provided for in the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006 and restrictions contained in the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2014, including prohibiting foreign assistance to Hamas or any power-sharing government of which Hamas is a member or over which Hamas has undue influence. These troubling developments, including the role played by Hamas in the formation of the government, have undermined Congressional support for U.S. assistance to the Palestinians. Any assistance should only be provided when we have confidence that this new government is in full compliance with the restrictions contained in current law. We urge you to continue to impress on President Abbas the need for him to cease any alliance with terrorist organizations such as Hamas and to return to the negotiating table with Israel.

… the National School Lunch Program is …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 15th,2014

.. a disaster beyond words ..

.. the First Lady [yea , Michelle Obama] wants kids to eat healthier . O.K. , but do their menus in a healthier way …

.. if you think that feeding kids greens , salads , and other stuff that they do not want will work , forget it . The kids are many things , but they are not stupid ..

.. these kids are raised in the Age of the Internet . They grow up with Social Media . If you think that they are going to take this crappy excuse for food lying down , forget it . They will find their own imaginative ways to not just get mad , but also to get even …

.. [h/t — Reason]..
.. [link] to the article ..

.. in this case , these high school kids are imaginative , humourous , and inventive . Take a look at their music video ; it is good , and it is worth a few laughts …

… Fitz must be wary …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 31st,2013

… Ed Fitzgerald is a newbie in statewide politics in Ohio . He has no idea , as of yet , how nasty , how vicious , and expensive that it is . That being , he is also inexperienced as hell statewide . He has never run a state wide campaign of any kind . He has not undergone the fund raising ordeal that it is to gather the tens of millions of dollars that it will take to win a statewide party primary , much less a fall general election campaign against a fairly popular (& improving) incumbent governor , John Kasich , espc. If possible , Kasich may well have presidential ambitions .


Fitzgerald ‘ s advantages –

[-] telegenic –

[-] inexperienced – normally , you would want experience . coming from the mess that was Cuya Cty , not so much

[-] statewide Dem machine – even with all of the fuckups , Ohio Dems can and do still win statewide elections . just not as much as before…

[-] national backing [Dems] – Obama & the DNC owe Ohio Dems big time , and for obvious reasons .

[-] national motivation [unions] – the unions have lots of motivation . and going after Kasich in a general election campaign may well be more practical than starting World War III in another iniatiative campaign . Ohio ‘ s GOP is unlikely to make the same mistake , twice , and they dominate the legislature

[-] profession – Fitzgerald is (was) an FBI agent , which never hurts , and can help , espc w.

[-] corruption – free – so far – Fitz was not a part of the old regime in Cuyahoga County , and did not and would not participate in the massive corruption scandal which , ironically , eventually led to him becoming Cuya Cty ‘ s first Executive .

Disadvantages –

[-] inexperienced – Fitz is in his first term , and has not had much of a chance to establish a record . In Cuya Cty ‘ s case , that may not be so bad , because just making the trains run on time without any taint of corruption should give the conductor a big lift

[-] unknown – in Ohio , you generally do not win statewide on your first attempt . Sometimes , it happens .

[-] incumbent – John Kasich is in a similar position as the governor that Fitz is as Cuya Cty Exec . Having the trains run on time corruption free , and an improving economy , help the incumbent , and make it much harder for a challenger …
