… POTUs has to Kidding [#SCOTUS][#nomination]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 12th,2016

.. Is POTUS stubborn , blind , arrogant , stupid , or wHAT ?? ..

.. he really wants to piss people off and pick a fight . Doing so with the ” common man ” is one thing . Picking a fight with the U. S. Senate is another thing altogether ..

.. it does not matter that the three proposed nominees [one off of the 9th Circuit , and D.C. Circuit Appeals Court judges Sri Srinivasan and Chief Judge Merrick Garland] may well be moderates .They are not conservatives ..

.. Do you really think that the senate G.o.P. caucus is going to allow POTUS to replace a god of theconservative movement [Antonin Scalia] with either moderate or possibly even a liberal ? No ! I don’t think so ! …

… The F.C.C. has not Gotten the Message [#internet regulation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 1st,2016

.. you would think that the Federal Communications Commission [the F.C.C.] would have gotten the message , by now .

.. Congress has said no to ” Net neutraility . ” Twice . Also , the federal appeals courts [the D.C. Circuit Court , to be specific] has also SAID ” no ” to ” Net Neutrality . ” Twice more …

.. well , I guess that it is time for Round 3 …

.. [link] to the news article ..

.. ISPs and other companies will not stand for this . There will be a huge bi – partisan majority in Congress to overrule the F.C.C. . Not only that , they will act to amend federal law to specifically state that the Internet is NOT a public utility , and that ” Net Neutrality ” is not the will of Congress …

.. either this bill or the Iran Sanctions bill will be the first one in which His Lordship ‘ s veto is overridden …

… An Important Case [but not at the US Supreme Court]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 7th,2014

.. what initially I am referring to was Hobby Lobby v Sebelius . That was the current case that was at the U.S. Supreme Court only a couple of days ago …

.. this is a different case . It is one that is at a court at a different level , at the D.C. Federal Court of Appeals . It is Halbing v . Sebelius , one of a number of legal challenges that are still in the works to ObamaCrapCare . Jonathan Keim of National Review ‘ s Bench Memos has an excellent take of the legal combat [here] …

.. if I were an ObamaCrap , I would be sweating this one , just like if I were them , i would be sweating out the outcome of Hobby Lobby at the U.S. Supreme Court . From the verbal combat , from what I have read in various places , this one is likely to come out in favour of halbig in a 2 to 1 decision . You might ask …

.. Did not POTUS  pack the D.C. Appeals Court with 3 of his nominees , courtesy of Dingy Harry Reid ? Yes , he did . Appeals Court cases are heard by a 3 – judge panel , first . Then , after that , if  the Court so decides , it can hear it ” en banc . ” Usually , that means the full court , but not always . Also , the U.S. Supreme Court will be well aware of this case . More likely than not , the Supremes could opt to hear the case themselves , thus taking it away from the full court …

.. I would think and bet on a 2 –  1 decision for Halbig . Also , I think that the Supremes will act to take the case away from the full court , given the immorality of the court packing done by Dingy Harry Reid ….
