OREGON\’S OBAMACARE WEB SITE

In the previous blog I talked about the impossibly ridiculous cost of ObamaCare web sites – not just the national site (as much as $634 million for a disaster on steroids which – despite the lies of its PR flaks in the media, is still nowhere near fixed), but the sites for state exchanges as well.  I noted that Maryland\’s web site cost $261 million dollars – all but...

THE IRS SCANDAL TIMELINE

Mainstream media have done everything they can to bury it. Chris Matthews calls it “obscure” – and there is little doubt that his cohorts at (where else?) MSNBC could not agree more. President Obama says there is “not a smidgen” of corruption involved with it. So how can that be, when the IRS scandal is so obviously an attempt to suppress freedom of speech...

HAMAS\’ “COMMITMENT TO PEACE”

While we\’re on the subject of hamas…. Here, again from Elad Benari at Israelnationalnews.com, is how hamas would view any international military group which might be used to facilitate peace between Gaza and Israel: PalestinianAuthority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s suggestionthat NATO forces be deployed in the future Palestinian state isnot well-received by his rivals, the Hamas...

IN CASE YOU THINK ISRAEL IS THE ONLY ONE…

If you think Israel could live very happily without hamas ruling Gaza you would, of course, be right. But if you think it is any different for Egypt – the other country which borders Gaza (and which once controlled it) – you would be wrong. How wrong?  Read this excerpt from Elad Benari\’s article at israelnationalnews.com, and see for yourself: Egyptis continuing its...

OREGON\’S OBAMACARE WEB SITE

THE NEW REPUBLIC\’S VIEW OF CHRIS CHRISTIE

The New Republic\’s latest edition has a hit piece on Chris Christie.  But, I suspect far fewer people will read the piece itself than will look at, and react to, its accompanying photoshopped picture: Get it? That\’s Tony Soprano, played by the late James Gandolfini, with Chris Christie\’s head photoshopped where James Gandolfini\’s used to be –...

MORE SNOW

Until a couple of hours ago, it had been another dismal, raw day in Central New Jersey – one in which a wet snow had not stuck to road surfaces because the temperature was slightly over 32 degrees. Then the temperature dropped. We now have about two inches more of new accumulation and the snow is falling at a moderate to heavy pace.  Who knows how much more there will be. I...

WHICH WENDY?

Ken Berwitz Speaking of the ban on abortions after the 20th week – the ban that Wendy Davis unsuccessfully filibustered in the Texas state senate…. ….we have this quote, from a Texas State Senator: “I would have and could have voted to allow that togo through, if I felt like we had tightly defined the ability for a woman and adoctor to be making this decision together...

AND YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CURRENT INSURANCE TOO….

Is this some kind of a contest to see how many ways the public can be lied to about ObamaCare? Here is the latest, via the first two paragraphs of Joel B. Pollak’s article at breitbart.com: In 2009, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) apologized profusely to the White House for shouting, “You lie!” as President Barack Obama told Congress that Obamacare would not cover illegal immigrants. Now...

SENATOR ROBERT MENENDEZ: TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK

It is taking longer than I thought.  But the clock on Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) is ticking.  And, it seems more and more evident, it is only a matter of time. First it was Menendez\’s cozy relationship with salomon melgen, a Florida eye doctor – one who is under investigation for the millions upon millions of dollars he made in, let\’s say, interesting...

HOW BAD WAS THE DE BLASIO INAUGURATION?

How bad was Bill de Blasio’s inauguration? So bad that even the New York Times, which avidly supported Mr. de Blasio, couldn’t let it go by without commenting. Excerpted from yesterday’s editorial: Mr. de Blasio’s words carried an indictment: the city had become unjust and unlivable for too many of the poor and working class. But he tempered this complaint, as he should...

LOW VOLT-AGE

Here’s something that most Chevrolet Volt owners know (which means virtually no one does), excerpted from Mark Modica’s article at the National Legal and Policy Center’s web site (nlpc.org): A recent study by fleetcarma.com unveils yet another drawback of General Motors’ much-hyped Chevy Volt. It appears that the environmentally-conscientious, affluent owners of the...

DAVID LIMBAUGH’S COLUMN ON RACISM

Syndicated columnist David Limbaugh (yes, he is Rush Limbaugh’s brother) has written an absolutely excellent column on racism – specifically the feeling of so many on the left that they have free rein to engage in racism, since they’re “the good guys”. Here is a small excerpt, which references the disgusting comments made by Melissa Harris-Perry and her...
