Catcalls to Congress for threatening to cut off funding for Homeland Security. The adverse and even disastrous effects of shutting down the government or parts of it do not seem to bother our Republican Congressional Representatives, even when they now control both Houses of Congress. They are still the Party of NO! . . .
Kudos to New Jersey Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson for ordering Governor Chris "In your face!" Christie to restore the funds he had withheld from the Pension Fund for retired public workers. The New Jersey Governor's many troubles at home are seriously damaging his chances of winning the Republican nomination for President. His state is worse off financially that it was when he took office. And then there is the "Bridge scandal". . .
Catcalls to United States District Judge Andrew Hanen for granting, in response to an appeal by twenty-six Republican controlled states, a temporary injunction blocking President Obama's executive action on immigration. They want to pursue a lawsuit that would permanently stop the President's executive action. This is a suspiciously political decision that will be appealed and hopefully reversed. . .
Catcalls to the Republican Senators who are petitioning their colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee not to confirm Judge Loretta Lynch to succeed Eric Holder as Attorney General of the United States. They have even said they will not approve the Committee's action if the Committee does confirm her! This inexcusable behavior follows a hearing that Judge Lynch sailed through with flying colors. . . .
