  • ACLJ Says Federal Decision Clears Way For ObamaCare HHS Mandate To Be Put On Hold

    Posted by Ronn / on 11/15/2013 / 0 Comments

    The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), a pro-life legal organization that focuses on constitutional law, said a decision by a federal appeals court that clears the way for the ObamaCare HHS Mandate to be put on hold represents a "significant victory for protecting the religious beliefs of individuals and corporations." The opinion, posted here, comes in the case of Korte v. Sebelius.

    In a 2-1 decision issued Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, the court reversed the federal district court's denial of a motion for a preliminary injunction and remanded the case for the ..

  • i24 News Fails to Help Israel’s Digital Media Imprint

    Posted by Ronn / on 11/14/2013 / 0 Comments

    i24 News launched in July with the mission, like so many others before them in the pro-Israel community, of correcting media misperceptions about Israel. Aiming to counter Al Jazeera, founder French mogul Patrick Drahi wanted to correct the many media inaccuracies about Israel. The theme of many of the feature stories written about the launch asked, as did The New Yorker, "Can i24 News change how the world sees Israel?"

    A few months into the mission, a review of their website shows a miserable failure in understanding the digital media landscape. If you Google search "Israel news," i24 News isn't even ..

    Posted by Ronn / on 11/11/2013 / 0 Comments

    The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), founded by Jay Sekulow today asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take a case involving a challenge to the ObamaCare HHS Mandate - urging the high court to permit companies and corporations to bring religious liberty claims in challenging the Mandate. The ACLJ filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, posted here, in the case of Gilardi v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

    "This is a critical issue that needs to be addressed by the Supreme Court," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. "To ..

  • Ronn Torossian: Does America Want Another World Trade Center?

    Posted by Ronn / on 11/09/2013 / 0 Comments

    Imagine the righteous anger Americans would feel if someone would dare blame America for the World Trade Center bombings. Was it America's fault that the WTC was bombed?

    Anyone with a brain would say that America was attacked by dangerous terrorists. Indeed, in this world there is such a thing as good and bad, right and wrong. The victim is not to be blamed.

    Yet this week Secretary of State John Kerry encouraged the Arabs to commit violence on Israel by asking, "I mean, does Israel want a third intifada?"

    The Second Intifada, which began in 2000, brought with it the ..

  • The Resident Anti-Semite of ‘The Nation’ and UC Santa Barbara

    Posted by Ronn / on 11/05/2013 / 0 Comments

    Universities and respectable publications wouldn't dare to employ a Ku Klux Klansman or someone who spewed hatred against homosexuals. If, however, it is Jews that someone speaks about, then the rules are different.

    Richard Falk is a man who blames the Boston marathon terrorist attack on Israel (and America) - and shouldn't be employed by government organizations, media or academic institutions. That same man has claimed that the 9/11 World Trade Center attack was an American government conspiracy. He posted on his website a blood-soaked dog eating bones, urinating on lady justice - wearing a yarmulke with a Jewish star.

  • Carrie advertisement is awesome PR

    Posted by Ronn / on 11/01/2013 / 0 Comments

    In the world of movie marketing, TransMedia has become the ultimate calling card. Not just multimedia, but media that expands the story on the screen beyond what people can see at the movies. In an ultimate example of both TransMedia, and modern movie marketing, the producers of Carrie staged an incredible stunt and then put the results online for everyone to share.

    The scene was set in a NYC coffee shop. One patron accidentally spills coffee on another's computer. What happens next - sorry, no spoilers - created an internet sensation, and propelled the upcoming Carrie remake into the national conversation. ..

  • Celebrities who promoted ObamaCare now quiet in wake of website debacle

    Posted by Ronn / on 10/26/2013 / 0 Comments

    In the heady days after the October 1 launch of the Affordable Care Act -- better known as ObamaCare -- Lady Gaga, Amy Poehler, Nina Dobrev, Rosario Dawson, Sarah Silverman, Olivia Wilde, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Pearl Jam, Lance Bass, John Legend, Alyssa Milano and Kerry Washington joined the President to encourage Americans to #getcovered.

    Since then, technical glitches and website snafus have so marred the ObamaCare website that the team who built it has been called to testify before Congress on Thursday. But there will be no celebrities flanking them on Capitol Hill, as the stars that helped launch the ..

  • Be a Liberal American Jew - and Assimilate

    Posted by Ronn / on 10/17/2013 / 0 Comments

    Someting must be done about the results of the recent Pew Survey on Jewish identity.

    Let us start by reviewing results of the first major survey of American Jews in 10 years, which tell us that 71 percent of non-Orthodox Jews intermarry, two-thirds of Jews do not belong to a synagogue, one-fourth do not believe in God, and one-third had a Christmas tree in their home last year.

    Let us further absorb the fact that last year's UJA Jewish Community Survey found that liberal Jews have fewer children, do not provide meaningful Jewish education, Intermarry, assimilate and largely disappear as ..

    Pasta maker's inept PR only makes it worse

    Ronn Torossian for on Oct 8th, 1:07pm

    Recently a world-renowned pasta company - who shall remain nameless, just in case they eventually fix this - decided to draw a line in the sand. Check that, they picked up a handful of sand and threw it in the eyes of some of their customers.

    Now, saying you support something that may not be popular is one thing. But saying an entire group of people should just "not buy your product cause you don't need them" is a bad idea...even if you mean ..
