1. Before Being Obama Flack, Jay Carney Claims He Was ‘Old-Fashioned Journalist’ Who ‘Didn’t Take Sides’
Appearing on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday, former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney asserted that he had been a completely objective reporter for Time magazine before becoming a spin doctor for the Obama administration: “Right after the election in 2008, I was the Washington bureau chief for Time. And I was an old-fashioned journalist, not an advocate, didn’t take sides in my job.

There is no disputing the fact that the state of relations between Israel and the United States, or more specifically, Israel and the White House, are the worst they’ve been since Israel’s founding. The two nations have had their policy differences in the past but a confluence of regional interests and shared moral values generally meant that differences – to the extent that any existed – were placed on the back burner.

California’s experience with ObamaCare portends a dubious future for the nation. “The rate increase from 2013 to 2014, on average, was significantly higher than rate increases in the past,” said Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones at a news conference Tuesday. Jones admitted that Californians endured premium rate increases ranging from 22 percent to 88 percent from last year to this year. “The rate increase from 2013 to 2014, on average, was significantly higher than rate increases in the past,” Jones added.
Unsurprisingly, younger Californians bore the brunt. Jones cites one region of Los Angeles County, where people age 25 paid 52 percent more for a silver plan than they had for something similar in 2013. Yet Jones was also forced to note someone age 55 saw a 38 percent increase in their premiums.
In four days, news reports Ebola cases and deaths went up 13.5%. Four days? That is less than 2.5% of the time for this year’s epidemic.
If the epidemic grows like this for long, this epidemic will kill thousands. And it could cripple the African economy.
And it could spread.
So, what is being done to stop the spread of disease? Have you heard of any real attempts to stop it?
Nigeria did close schools and government offices. Is anything else being done? Have the cancelled flights into and out of the afflicted areas?
Are you concerned?
