´Journal News´
hires armed security guards

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:Not your typical New Yorker, 1/2/2013 9:12:21 AM

The Journal News of West Nyack, N.Y., has hired armed security guards to defend its offices after receiving a torrent of phone calls and emails responding to the paper´s publication of the names and addresses of area residents with pistol permits. RGA Investigations, a private security company, "is doing private security at on location at the Journal News as a result of the negative response to the article," according to a police report first obtained by the Rockland County Times (Nanuet, N.Y.) and shared with POLITICO.

Armed protection makes "them" safer....but not you, no, not for you.

The questions are....
Are they glad they published the information?
Would they do it again?
Bwahahahahahha

And of course, these pilars of journalistic integrity, these pundits of ivory tower thinking, will never see the utter hypocrisy of their actions.

Maybe the paper could reconoiter in Greenwich Village and let us know who has explosives stored in their apartment.

Stinking Hypocrites! I propose someone with more internet savvy that I create a website titled something like "Who Works For the Journal News", and create an interactive map of the names, addresses, phone numbers, photographs of all the paper´s employees, and the include public records of every arrest, crime, lawsuit, divorce, illegitimate child, credit rating, and any other potentially embarrassing background information on all of them. See how they like having their privacy invaded (legally, all public records, of course.) Also go after their advertisers. Threaten boycotts, etc.

Does anyone else find it odd that none of these stories point out the initial reaction- the immediate posting of the address, phone numbers, personal information and photographs of the Journal-News Publisher, the writer, and all of the Staff?

Everyone that was named should put a sign on their front door.."That´s right, I am packing, but my neighbors are not. So who are you going to rob?"

Yeah #6, I am also wondering why no stories about the publishing of the Journal News employee´s info. I remember it happened, I went to the websites and saw Google Earth shots of the reporters houses.

Seems the Journal is saying they hired the guns because of "threatening" e-mails and phone messages, NOT because their info was published.

Non-reporting of a story is as bad as false reporting.

Drat. I was hoping they hired guards for the law-abiding gun owners they exposed, so that they could leave their houses without worrying that hoodlums would break in to steal their guns.

De Blasio booed by

Mets fans greeted Mayor de Blasio with hearty Bronx cheers on Monday, before he left early on the Amazins’ bitter Opening Day loss. Donning a pinstripe home white jersey and blue Mets cap over dress pants, de Blasio was loudly booed twice by Flushing faithful — once as he was announced and then again as he left the Citi Field diamond. The wave of boos didn’t get to de Blasio, who kept his cool, kicked and delivered from just in front of the pitcher’s mound.

Ezekiel´s Prophecy

Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm´s elder brother, is a physician who helped design ObamaCare and has been one of its most intense champions. So you may be surprised to learn that in his new book, "Reinventing American Health Care," he predicts that tens of millions more Americans will lose their medical plans in the coming decade. In its "You´re the Boss" small-business blog, the New York Times quotes his prediction that by 2025, "fewer than 20 percent of workers in the private sector will receive traditional employer-sponsored health insurance."

You know, a TelePrompter," said Biden. "Barack always kids when he says, ´Joe Biden,´ he said, ´I´m learning to speak without a TelePrompter, Joe´s learning to speak with one.´"

A CBS reporter from Arizona reveals that President Obama´s press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing. In fact, she says, the reporters often receive the answers in advance of the briefing, too. According to the reporter, Jay Carney told her this yesterday at the White House:(snip)"And then he also mentioned that a lot of times, unless it´s something breaking, the questions that the reporters actually ask -- the correspondents -- they are provided to him in advance. So then he knows what he´s going to be answering and sometimes those correspondents

White House spokesman Jay Carney plugged his wife´s book today at the White House press briefing: In response to a question about whether raising the minimum wage is good politics -- because it helps Democrats with women voters -- Carney said, "It´s certainly the right thing to do regardless. What the assessments that have been done related to the minimum wage is that women would be affected more than men, because women tend to have minimum wage jobs, as I understand it -- not an economist -- in greater numbers than men do." He continued, bringing his wife´s book into the discussion:

The Conservative Political Action Conference has come and gone for 2014, and Sen. Rand Paul won the straw ballot which is held every time the party gets started. Paul, R-Ky., racked up 31 percent support among the partiers, and the CPAC gang is indeed prone to party. Sen. Ted Cruz , R-Texas, came in second with 11 percent of the CPAC thumbs-ups, and he will now head west (snip)Everyone is busy, busy, busy, laying groundwork. Except Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor and first brother. Where in the world is Jeb? Figuring out, I think, what to do about Common Core.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
