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.

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?

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.

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."

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.

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.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough – who has not ruled out a bid for president in 2016 – is now scheduled to speak at a gathering of Republicans in New Hampshire next month. The host of Morning Joe is set to address the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference the weekend of March 14 to 15 in Nashua, N.H., according to the event’s website. The Boston Globe on Wednesday first reported on the event, which will also include other potential presidential candidates Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Rep. Peter King of New York and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.

A dating service that pairs wealthy “sugar daddies” with “sugar babies” for “mutually beneficial dating arrangements” has endorsed Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. SeekingArrangement.com’s Friday announcement followed a recent report in the Dallas Morning News which detailed a number of discrepancies in Davis’ personal narrative, including that she left a man 13 years her senior the day after he made the last payment for her Harvard Law School education.

Just seven years ago, if someone had told me that I´d be writing for Christianity Today magazine about how I came to believe in God, I would have laughed out loud. If there was one thing in which I was completely secure, it was that I would never adhere to any religion—especially to evangelical Christianity, which I held in particular contempt. I grew up in the Episcopal Church in Alaska, but my belief was superficial and flimsy. It was borrowed from my archaeologist father, who was so brilliant he taught himself to speak and read Russian. When I encountered doubt,

I’ve been quite critical of President Obama over the course of his presidency. Earlier this week, for example, I wrote a piece in which I accused Mr. Obama of mendacity. So I take a back seat to no one when it comes to leveling harsh judgments against the president. But even I, an Obama critic, believe there are some lines one should not cross, some things that should never be said, some blows that are too brutal even for American politics. I had in mind what Jimmy Carter, who ranks with James Buchanan and a few others as among America’s worst

This fun little clip popped up on Twitter. It’s from 2008. In it, Washington Post Wonkblogger Ezra Klein admits that Obamacare would have to be passed, indeed Obama’s own election would require, a “sneaky strategy” because Democrats had been beaten roundly every time they had tried to pass anything close to a single-payer healthcare system in America. “At some point, you just have to win,” he tells the Netroots audience. None of those present seem to have a problem with what he says. Klein notes that 80-90% of Americans want healthcare reform, but the same number are happy with their

Senate Democrats voted unanimously three years ago to support the Obamacare rule that is largely responsible for some of the health insurance cancellation letters that are going out. In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.(snip) On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.

So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively.

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
