    This is what happens when the federal government does unconstitutional things, such as enact Obamacare. Individual religious freedoms conflict with government laws. The Supreme Court should have been unanimous in vindicating Hobby Lobby's complaint. The four radical leftists on the bench cannot be counted on to make correct decisions.

    Imagine this: no health insurance mandate for individuals or employers. People are free to buy -- or not -- whatever health insurance with whatever coverage they want, and they are held responsible for the consequences of their decisions. Employers are free to offer -- or not to offer -- whatever health insurance to their employees that they want, and employees consider whether they want to work for a company, whether they want to accept the employer's insurance benefit, or whether to purchase insurance on their own. Insurers are free to offer whatever policies in whatever number in whatever variety they want to satisfy the market for health insurance.

    Imagine freedom. Imagine the free market. That's America. Obamacare is tyranny. The Left is going apoplectic trying to spin the Supreme Court's affirmation of freedom as if it were tyrannical.

  • All the conservatives on this board knew this was going to happen.

    BHO is a complete failure as a president. Reality bites back hard, doesn't it?

    God help the USA for the next 2.5 years. BHO can still do enormous damage with his "pen and phone" tyrannical, unconstitutional, illegal, impeachable offense dictates.

    If liberalism is dealt a serious blow and setback in America because Obama has displayed liberalism's foolishness, bankruptcy and naiveté as a governing philosophy, then something good will have come out of his presidency.

  • BHO deserves to be impeached for so many things, and Hillary should be kept as far away from the WH as possible. Had the American electorate known the truth about Benghazi before the 2012 election, I have to believe they would not have reelected that traitor and menace. BHO and his administration knew that, of course, which is why they covered up the truth about Benghazi, made official red herring statements about it, and obstructed efforts to get to the truth.

    Anyone who would support that witch for president in 2016 is a complete moron.

    News report:

    "The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News."

    "The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks."

    CLDX has demonstrated on all counts: durable responses in difficult to treat cancers, combination synergy.

    It's about time for the market to value CLDX at a minimum of $40 per share. CLDX is at the vanguard of cancer immunotherapy.

    It's time for the FDA to streamline getting these effective treatments to market to save lives, time and money.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Crisis after crisis under BHO's tenure, no solutions, no plans, just lies and dithering. America becomes worse off by the month.

    If you voted for Obama you are a moron. If you still support him even with all the mounting evidence of his ineptitude, you are doubly a moron.

    You are seeing the plain truth that liberalism is idiocy. It will be national suicide if Democrats are not stopped.

  • bada bing!

    Does any other development-stage biotech have such a high percentage of institutional ownership?

    This whole takedown of the sector, and CLDX's poor performance over the past six weeks in particular, has been an orchestrated maneuver to accumulate shares.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief.

    Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future. The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old Soviet Union can be friends, is a reset, sure enough. The new Russia looks more like a reset to the Cold War, more adversary than friend, transformed by a feckless American president and an ambitious Russian leader eager to take advantage of weak and incompetent American leadership.

    The “humanitarian crisis” on the southern border is the most persuasive evidence of all that America is adrift in a sea of incompetence, blown about by every ill wind that blows. The mighty ship of state is bereft of a rudder, traveling in endless circles with the captain stumbling on the bridge, trying to make sense of navigation charts he can’t read.

    However, this may be ascribing to incompetence what is better explained by conspiracy. Mr. Obama promised in 2008 that he intended to transform America, and he is well on his way. Anyone who looked closely at the man and the influences that shaped who he would become risked being called a racist, a nativist, a bigot and a #$%$ yahoo. He was the messiah everyone was waiting for.

    The ruins of American foreign policy are not likely to catch the attention of a culture drunk on the entertainment of the trivial, the trifling and the unimportant. But everybody begins to notice when the chaos comes close, when those responsible for monitoring the border begin to tremble and sag under the weight of a tsunami...

    What A Coincidence That Lois Lerners Emails

    Any mid-level IT administrator will tell you that the IRS's claims to have lost those emails are bunk because of redundant backup systems that are routinely employed in email servers. Those emails exist. But they incriminate high-level officials in the BHO administration. Therefore the catch-me-if-you-can Democrats have conveniently "lost" them.

    BHO's administration and the current Democrat Party are the most corrupt, evil, criminal, destructive bunch of America haters and freedom haters and truth haters that have ever governed this country.

  • "Institutional investors hold a majority ownership of CLDX through the 91.80% of the outstanding shares that they control. This interest is also higher than at almost any other company in the Biotechnology industry."

    The page also has a graph that lists the following major purchases having occurred in 1Q:

    Franklin Advisors +2 million
    Oppenheimer +2 million
    BlackRock Fund Advisors +273 thousand
    Bennett Lawrence Management +320 thousand

    In the case of BOKO HARAM, the skin color of the members is irrelevant to their actions, as it always is. The deviant CULTURE of ISLAM is the explanatory cause. ISLAM is a religion and cultural force of violent terror and submission of the infidel (it is NOT a "religion of peace"). ISLAM in Africa is waging a war on Christians because Islam's cultural values are incompatible with any competing cultural system. For Muslims, there is no acceptable set of circumstances except for Islamic supremacy. That is a cultural fact about Islam.

    As usual, culture is the proper lens through which to analyze a group's actions; race is irrelevant. In Africa they are predominantly black, but there are many different cultures. Some African cultures are relatively better than others.

    It's CULTURE not race that matters.

    Anyone who thinks I'm a racist is willfully refusing to listen.

  • So the investigation into the IRS scandal of targeting conservative political groups will be impeded. The corruption of BHO and his minions knows no boundaries. They truly believe they are above the law and play the catch me if you can game.

    Anyone who continues to support BHO and the Democrat Party is a #$%$ head. So f all of you liberals. You are f ing #$%$.

    New Takeover Speculation

    Should also give CLDX shorts a lot to worry about. Imagine being short a stock and finding out one morning that it is trading up 230% over the previous day's closing price, as is the case with IDIX today.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Face it, you loser leftists, BHO is poison to America. His own party is rejecting him when it matters to them personally.

    BHO will go down in history as an unqualified dilettante who was elected only because he was black. And the ruinous consequences for the republic and for the world will go down in history as a lesson to all future civilizations who would choose an inept man to lead.

    BHO's failures are twofold: he is a failure as a man and as a leader. His ego and narcissism lead to the personal failure, his foolish leftist ideology lead to his failure as a governing official.

  • Today the following two listings were removed:

    Clinical Trial Manager
    Senior Clinical Trial Manager

    That follows upon two other senior positions being filled/disappearing earlier this week too.

    The pieces are in place for the Varli combination trials to commence.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The disconnect with reality and the irony are that the share price is the same as it was 12 months ago, before all the great news about Varli and about Rindo in ReACT, and almost half what it was six months ago when institutions agreed that $24.50 was a bargain price for shares of a promising immunotherapy biotech company.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Amnesty is dead. The government needs to secure the southern border pronto. Many Americans are upset with the government, especially BHO, permitting, encouraging, tolerating and assisting illegal aliens coming to and settling in the United States. Have you read about the fiasco in Arizona, with BHO dumping illegal aliens off at bus stations rather than deporting them? I bet Cantor's softness on illegal immigrants played a large role in his defeat in the primary election.

  • shoved up their a $$ es when CLDX rises to over $30 before the end of the summer.

    The announcement about complete accrual of patients in ACT-IV is looming. There are now 226 sites recruiting patients worldwide.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • According to Marucci, full enrollment has been expected by mid-year. Mid-year is now, and in my book it lasts until the end of July.

    Where's that announcement, Marucci? Where's that good news? What's up with the Varli combination trials? Investors deserve much more than you've delivered this year so far.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Tell me whether this is new; it seems new to me.

    Regarding Group 2C (the confirmatory group in ReACT, n=up to 73), Celldex stated in the release today, "evidence of anti-tumor activity in the first 23 patients will trigger full completion of enrollment to this arm of the study." 23 patients also just happens to also be the expected enrollment in that group by year's end.

    Why would management mention that the expected year-end enrollment number (23) is identical to the number (23) that would complete enrollment IF THE FIRST 23 PATIENTS SHOW EVIDENCE OF ANTI-TUMOR ACTIVITY? That's quite a conditional statement to make.

    Management seems to be strongly implying that it expects to see evidence of anti-tumor activity in the first 23 enrolled patients, thus it would not be necessary to enroll the full 73 patients in the confirmatory group. They must be seeing impressive efficacy in the patients that have been treated so far, and by that I mean 100% evidence of anti-tumor activity so far, which would make them confident enough to state a conditional about closing enrollment early, as they did in the press release.

    What do the rest of you think?

    Here is the full relevant text from today's release:

    "Celldex continues to enroll patients with recurrent GBM in ReACT, a Phase 2 study that includes patients both naive and refractory to Avastin(R). Enrollment to Group 1 (n=70 Avastin-naive patients) and enrollment of at least the first 23 patients in Group 2C (n=up to 73 Avastin-refractory patients) is expected to be completed by year-end 2014. (Group 2C is designed as a two-stage cohort; evidence of anti-tumor activity in the first 23 patients will trigger full completion of enrollment to this arm of the study). Updated data from the study will be presented by year-end 2014."

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    You are apparently incapable of distinguishing between race and culture. Culture is the lens through which social demographic analysis should occur. Furthermore, not all cultures are equal: some cultures are superior and others are inferior; some are destructive, others constructive.

    Some members of particular cultures self-select their members with race as a predominant characteristic of group self-selection. That doesn't mean that race is the cause of the culture, but it does mean that race is a strong selection factor for why a culture remains very strongly correlated with race in some instances. Hence you can legitimately generalize about the culture of some demographic groups whose members self-select based on race.

    With a group's culture and members' group self-selection along racial lines so tightly intertwined, it can be easy for unnuanced thinkers to misinterpret cultural analysis and criticism as being directed at the race of a cultural group. More often, though, the people who hurl unfounded accusations of racism understand the difference; they are merely attempting to shout down the opposition because they don't want the uncomfortable truths about culture in America to be told or they see an opportunity to manipulate public opinion as a means of securing more power (think of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton). Charging "racism" falsely often gets the results it seeks rather quickly, which is why it is used so often.
