… Nice Going , DummyCrats [#Navajo Nation][#Animas River spill][#E.P.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 27th,2015

.. the political tone – deafness of the Democrats on this one is incredible , and growing . It is also incredibly political stupid — and dangerous …

.. the Navajos are one of the largest Indian tribes [in terms of land area] in the nation . Their holdings cover parts of 4 states : Colorado [very little] , Utah [bigger] , New Mexico [much bigger still] , and , biggest of all , Arizona [huge] …

.. they obviously have several million folks who can claim Navajo ancestry . so the Navajos do give a flying fiddlers fig about what goes on back home on their ancestral lands . This environmental spill [courtesy of the ObamaCrap E.P.A. colossal blunder] effects them greatly .

.. ergo , the political effect could be huge . Utah is as deep red as it gets , so that one would not be particularly be changed by this . But , you add in Nevada , where a fair number of Navajos have migrated ? Yeow , that one is up for grabs . Colorado ? The number of Navajos is small , but the rest of the state has to be watching what the Obamacraps , the E.P.A. , and the DummyCraps in general are doing …

.. then comes New mexico . The Navajo prescence there is very strong , and spreads off of their lands . It could tip other tribes also [not limited to the Hopi] , and thus New Mexico politics …

.. then comes Arizona . The Navajo prescence in Arizona is enormous , including surrounding the Hopi lands . It would not just tip Az politics in general . Right Now , Arizona is roughly ” pink , ” or leaning GOP . You piss off enough of the Indians and you can [for the Dems] kiss off Az for a generation …

… Give ‘ Em Hell , Mia [Love , R – Ut]…

.. don’t bet the mortgage on it , but she is a heavy favourite to win in November …

.. her story is both amazing and inspiring . The daughter of Haitain immigrants , and herself the mother of 3 children , she is an extraordinary person …. she has built a business and has served as a Mayor and has served in the Utah leglislature ..

.. [h/t — TAS]..
.. [link] to the blog note …

.. she will inspire you by what she advocates and what she stands for . Then , you might realize that she is both black and female . Which is exactly how she wants to be thought of . Do not ignore her gender or her race , but do not obsess on it , either . Pay attention to her ideas and to what she does and where she stands …

… Here We Go [plural marriage ruling in Utah] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 16th,2013

.. ever since Windsor v US and Hollingsworth v Perry came out , people have been warning about this . They brought out warnings about it long before those 2 rulings emerged from the last U.S. Supreme Court term . Now , it gets much worse ..

.. the cause of so – called ” gay marriage ” continues to advance . Gays and lesbians are continuing their unabashed legal offensives , even against states who have constitutional prohibitions against this immoral offense . The radicals in the federal judiciary continue to accomodate them . How gross is that ?

.. ” Gay Marriage ” is unnatural and immoral . It must not be allowed to happen . Marriage is the natural and moral coupling between one man and one woman . It is that simple , folks . That is it …

[h/t — CNSnews.com]

.. Now , this . A federal judge in Utah has ruled that major parts of the state ‘ s polygamy prohibition law are unconstitutional . Yes , unconstitutional . Yea , amazingly enough … [article]

[update] [h/t — http://LegalInsurrection.com]

.. an update to this — the ruling is not quite that dire , at least not yet . It does effectively de – criminalize polygamy in Utah . No , the state will not touch this . It cannot . Utah ‘ s admission to the United States was made on condition that you-know-what was banned . So , they cannot go back on this .

.. However , the courts can act in this area . I expect them to continue to do so . The TLC ” Sister Wives  ” could appeal the partts of the ruling that they lost . The state will likely appeal , itself . Since Utah is in the 10th Federal Appeallate Circuit , they have a decent chance of winning an appeal . Not great , but a decent chance .

.. LEC here — given the legal environment , especially with those two ” gay marriage ” cases and Lawrence v Texas , eventually polygamy will be legalized . Not that I like it . I do not , not at all . Given the appalling lack of quality of judges that His Lordship is appointing to the bench , one should not be surprised …

… I have become a big fan of Mia Love , ever since I first heard her in an interview , both on “Hannity” on the  Fox News Channel, and

Alan and Mia Love

Mia Love , with her husband Alan at left (Photo credit: denalidog)

on Sean ‘ s radio show , which I have listened to , on and off , since he was the weekend man @ WABC 770 AM in New York City . She is an amazing woman , an extraordinary woman , a self – made woman , a religious woman (a convert from Roman Catholicism to Mormonism), an immigrant of distinguished standing , and the current elected mayor of Saratoga Springs …

… and , god – willing , the next congresswoman from the newly created 4th district of Utah . Also , she would be the first elected female Black Republican in our nation ‘ s history …
