Christmas 1776: A Miracle at Trenton

Christmas of 1776 was not marked with tree lights and presents, but the phrase “Victory or Death” as George Washington and his troops courageously crossed the Delaware River. Knowing that his army may not survive the next campaign season for battle, Washington did what very few would have done – he decided to launch a surprise attack on the Hessians, German mercenary soldiers, who were encamped at Trenton. It was a daring move on Washington’s part as his army, which dwindled from tens of thousands to only a few thousand, was beyond fatigued. They were so ill-equipped that burlap bags were used as makeshift shoes to protect their feet from ...

Chris Christie: Number 14 in Your Program, Number 14 in Your Heart

Chris Christie declared for President this week and 320 million Americans asked as if with a single breath, “Why? Why are you running, Chris?” Christie has fallen so far behind in the national polls that he’s now in the neighborhood of Trumpville: the notorious WSJ-NBC poll found last week that 55 percent of Republicans would not consider voting for Christie. And he lags even further behind in the money race. Christie waited to declare until the last day of the filing period, one assumes, precisely to avoid invidious comparisons not only with Jeb Bush, but with Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul, as well.

HEALTHCARE: Admin Won’t Release Final HealthCare.gov Premiums Until After Elections “The Obama administration has already debuted its new, improved version of HealthCare.gov, but still won’t release premium rates on the website until after the Nov. 4 elections.

Obamacare claims seventh GOP state

Yesterday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie brought New Jersey on board with the Medicaid expansion aspect of Obamacare. According to Huffington Post, Christie did so because his state’s poor citizens would receive a great deal of help: Christie, a potential 2016 presidential contender who is up for reelection this year, defied conservative opponents of Obamacare by embracing one of its key components when he announced his plan to the Democratic-controlled state legislature in Trenton. "After considerable discussion and research, I have decided to participate in Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. While we already have one of the ...
