This morning I was looking at Morning Joe when they said we had the potential for a repeat of the Blizzard of ’78 this weekend. Apparently there are several computer weather models and the spread is as much as 1” to 16” inches in parts of NY State.
If 72 hours out our computer models have a 1600% margin of error what makes anyone think it’s sensible to base spending on computer models forecasting “climate change” over 30 or 50 years?
Lost among the talk of the Robert Menendez and the Hookers and the Dominican donors is this story out of New Jersey:
An Elmwood Park man pleaded guilty on Tuesday to conspiring with his brother to violate federal election law by steering $21,400 in illegal campaign contributions to U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez.
Benedetto Bigica, 45, admitted that he worked with his brother, Joseph, of Franklin Lakes, from April 2005 to April 2008 to make the illegal contributions, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman said.
And Joseph threw in his share:
Joseph Bigica, 47, an insurance broker, was a prominent Democratic contributor who won millions of dollars in no-bid government contracts across North Jersey. Authorities said he recruited 19 people, including family members and business associates, and used them as straw donors to make 30 illegal contributions to Menendez’s campaigns, totaling $98,600 from 2005 to 2009.
How did senator Menendez describe this? His office called the Senator a “victim”
That’s why he didn’t pay those Hookers, he didn’t want them to be victims.
Would we even be talking about Menendez if Jay Leno didn’t crack a joke about him?
I was really excited about Robert Spencer being a speaker at the annual Catholic Men’s Conference for the Worcester Diocese. It’s a great event, it was the first such men’s conference in the country and spawned a slew of them nationwide and there is no sight like 1000+ men lined up for confession.
Then this happened:
I was scheduled to appear at a Catholic Men’s Conference in Worcester, Massachusetts on March 16, until today, when the Roman Catholic Bishop of Worcester, Robert McManus, directed that my appearance be canceled. McManus was under pressure from Islamic supremacist groups who were calling and emailing the diocese demanding that he cancel my appearance. I’ve been informed that they were asked to call the diocese and demand the cancellation by a Boston Globe reporter named Lisa J. Wangsness, who contacted me this morning and appears to have instigated the entire controversy.
Meanwhile He spoke at the Natick VFW this week I interviewed him afterwards:
I know the Bishop and he’s a pretty decent guy who has not given in to the media in the past. I suspect he was badly played by the various groups involved but what really confuses me is this:
The Globe has not and likely will not be any sort of ally of the church and when the “new evangelization” gets into full swing the same people screaming for the removal of Spencer will be objecting to Catholic proselytizing.
What will happen when these same people start objecting then?
In Massachusetts the GOP has only 11% registration, last week the state party had an election for a new Chairman. Kirsten Hughes was the winner and spoke to me after her election.
She is a competent and energetic person who might be able to pull it off, unfortunately the method by which she was umm less than optimal:
