Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement has become a laughing stock. On NBC’s Tonight Show Friday, the audience broke out into cheers and applause when Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) told host Jay Leno, “ObamaCare: it´s the biggest jobs killer in this country” (video follows with transcript and commentary): JAY LENO HOST: Would you be an entrenched politician? You seem pretty set in your ways. "It´s this, this, this or I shut down the government." SENATOR TED CRUZ (R-TEXAS): Well look, what I´m entrenched about is fighting for 26 million Texans. I mean, I´ve spent, in the ten months I´ve been in

Last night on Fox News´ "Special Report" and CNN´s "The Lead with Jake Tapper," video aired of President Obama admitting that due to ObamaCare, "8 to 9 million people … might have to change their coverage." The key words there are "have to." The setting is the February of 2010 health care summit with Republicans. Minority Whip Eric Cantor is addressing the president directly on the issue of people losing their insurance due to the Affordable Care Act: [Video] CANTOR: …Because I don´t think you can answer the question in the positive to say that people will be able to

The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF)

The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) “Senate Update” quotes one of Kentucky’s two largest newspapers, the Lexington Herald-Leader, which recently reported that “U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Republican Leader in the Senate, has decided to declare “war” on the conservatives who disagree with him.” Is it any wonder that Obama has lately had a smile constantly on his face despite all the negative press and disappointing news from his ObamaCare sources? Sen. McConnell (no connection with this author) has made liberal Democrats joyous at the feud between conservatives in the party and RINO-liberal sympathizers, during the recent and all upcoming election



Is Crumbling Health Care
System A Preview Of ObamaCare?

Socialism: As the U.S. fixates on ObamaCare, south of our border another "free and universal" health care system is collapsing, according to a report from the Associated Press. It´s an uneasy portent. The idea of free, universal health care has always seemed like a perfect solution. At least that was the thinking behind Venezuela´s constitutionally enshrined "right" to free health care since 1999, winning the late President Hugo Chavez a lot of elections and seeming to be the logic behind ObamaCare. But post-Chavez, Venezuela´s health care system is a shambles. Massive shortages of basic supplies plague both public and private hospitals. Everything

President Obama deserves forbearance on the bungled rollout of his health care initiative. After all, Republicans have dedicated themselves to sabotaging the law (Snip)Still, Obama deserves all the blame for the deception that may be the biggest threat to his signature legislative achievement -- and his legacy. He must have known better when he told Americans repeatedly over the past five years that they could keep their insurance policies if they were happy with them. As countless policyholders have learned over the past few weeks, that´s simply not true.

Hillary Clinton remains the most formidable presidential nomination frontrunner for a non-incumbent in the modern era. (snip)The only candidate in my mind who could catch fire, Massachusetts´ Senator Liz Warren, has already declared her support for Clinton. In fact, every single female Democratic senator is behind Clinton. What a difference that is from 2008. Much of the establishment was actually encouraging Obama to run in 2008. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid weren´t backing Clinton. Claire McCaskill´s endorsement of Obama in 2008 was particularly memorable. All three of them are now openly pleading for and endorsing Clinton for 2016.

Obama threatens GOP with executive

President Obama on Friday night continued throwing his entire second-term agenda against the wall to see what sticks, challenging Republicans to join him and support more federal spending, pass immigration reform and tackle other challenges. But should the GOP stand in the way, the president indicated he’s willing to use executive orders to accomplish his aims. “What we’ve seen over the last several years is a constant ratcheting up of partisanship that prevents us from moving forward on things that I think most people would say aren’t Democrat or Republican ideas. They’re just good, common-sense American ideas,” Mr. Obama said

A round of applause for anyone who guessed that President Obama would deal with a rising tide of public outrage over his phony "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan" promise by throwing other people´s money at the problem! The Hill reports that a lot more people may suddenly become eligible for tax credits to pay for their shiny new overpriced, under-performing ObamaCare coverage: Right now, the tax credits are only available to people making 133 to 400 percent of the federal poverty line. But the administrative fix under discussion would widen the eligibility for people with

In recent weeks, I’ve heard heartbreaking stories from many Hoosiers about the impact the new health care law is having on them and their families. Today I’d like to share with you some of their experiences. Mike from Bloomington wrote in to say that the plan he has now — which he likes — is being canceled at the end of the year. This, of course, is exactly what the president and other champions of the law promised would not happen. Mike’s new plan will cost him $900 more a month. Scott from Salem shared his story about how, shortly

Hello everyone. Veterans’ Day Weekend is a chance for all of us to say two simple words: “Thank you.” Thank you to that greatest generation who fought island by island across the Pacific, and freed millions from fascism in Europe. Thank you to the heroes who risked everything through the bitter cold of Korea and the stifling heat of Vietnam. And thank you to all the heroes who have served since, most recently our 9/11 Generation of veterans.

When word got out in June that Texas A&M University was coming out with its own brand of fragrances this fall, students and alumni took to Twitter to suggest some scents. Among them: "Bat Feces" and "Chilifest Stink." But for Masik Collegiate Fragrances, the New York company that developed the school´s cologne and perfume, Texas A&M conjures something more aromatic. It describes the men´s fragrance as "refreshing top notes of Italian lemon, bergamot and iced pineapple" that open into "a body of vivid florals, raw nutmeg and cinnamon." The scent, Masik says, seeks to capture the "timeless honor of Aggie

Late last August, along the coast of New Hampshire, Kevin Walsh, police chief in the town of Rye, got a lecture on law enforcement from a bunch of grown-up bicyclists. Local law requires bikers to ride single-file when there is traffic. But this day, a pack of a dozen or so bikers were racing down Ocean Boulevard, at high speed, up tofive abreast, according to an interview the chief later gave.

NBC´s Chuck Todd scored a huge interview with President Obama Thursday and opened things by immediately drilling down on the president´s relentlessly repeated lie that under ObamaCare you can keep your current insurance plan if you like it. The full interview is even more impressive than the clips that have been going around. Even after he elicits a "sorry" out of Obama, Todd keeps after the point for almost ten minutes. Ultimately, though, Todd came away with the impression that Obama doesn´t believe he lied. And Todd is probably right, which is a little unnerving. During his own interview on the Hugh

For all the tough talk on the international front the United States has quietly been easing some of the financial restrictions on Iran, a new investigation reveals. But, as one source suggested, the talks may have backfired — and now the White House is feeling vulnerable.The White House actually softened sanctions right after the new president took office, The Daily Beast reported. That’s quite a shift from what’s been making the rounds of global media in recent months — that the United States has been talking tough about the need for Iran to give up its nuclear weapons development dreams

Congress is gearing up for a series of votes on measures that could upend the entire Obamacare scheme, as both the House and Senate now have bills that would allow Americans to keep their health insurance policies in the face of the Affordable Care Act, no matter what. [Snip] Now, in the wake of Obama´s public apology to millions of Americans who have received cancellation letters from their insurers despite his promises, four pieces of legislation--two in each house of Congress--are gathering steam to force the government to keep its word.

President Barack Obama addressed the healthcare.gov website´s chronic dysfunctions Friday by quipping that he would fix it himself, ´but I don´t write code.´ The self-deprecating line came during a speech in New Orleans about shoring up U.S. exports through American port cities. But the moment also jokingly cast the president--perhaps unintentionally--as a hands-on administrator rather than the aloof executive that White House insiders have described in news articles, broadcast interviews and books. [Snip] Obama waited for audience laughter, but it didn´t come. His brief turn to address his calamitous health insurance overhaul included an admission that the Affordable Care Act

Engineers at Duke University have designed a breakthrough gadget that ´harvests´ background microwave radiation and converts it into electricity, with the same efficiency as solar panels. The development, unveiled on Thursday, raises exciting possibilities such as recharging a phone wirelessly and providing power to remote locations that can´t access conventional electricity. And the researchers say that their inexpensive invention is remarkably versatile. It could be used to capture ´lost´ energy from a range of sources such as satellite transmissions, sound signals or Wi-Fi. The Duke engineers used metamaterials, which their press release describes as ´engineered structures that can capture various

As nuclear talks between Iran and major world players enters its third day what has emerged is that Iran will get major relief from sanctions in exchange for the dubiously enforceable promise of restricting its uranium enrichment to levels for peaceful energy use only. And as US Secretary of State John Kerry jets around Europe posing as the deal maker, we find out that the Obama Administration had already taken it upon themselves in June to stop imposing sanctions on new entities created to do business in place of a sanctioned one.

David Eckert was pulled over by police in Deming, N.M., for failing to come to a complete halt at a stop sign in the Walmart parking lot.

Ken Cuccinelli’s narrow loss in the Virginia gubernatorial race has become the latest battleground in the war between the so-called Republican establishment and Tea Party-type insurgents. The “establishment” blames the Tea Party induced government shutdown for alienating Virginians, a great many of whom work for the federal government. The insurgents blame the Republican Party for not providing enough money to Cuccinelli’s campaign. Some suggest that the “establishment” wanted Cuccinelli to lose out of spite and/or so it could blame the shutdown for his defeat. What does the Cuccinelli campaign have to say about this? Its chief strategist, Chris LaCivita, blames

On Tuesday, Colorado voters wisely rejected Amendment 66, which would have pumped almost $1 billion in new taxes into the state’s wasteful and inefficient public-school system. The amendment had powerful supporters from all corners of the education establishment – the teacher’s unions, the governor, almost every elected Democrat, Michael Bloomberg, Arne Duncan, the Gates Foundation, and many others. Remarkably, nearly two-thirds of Colorado voters still rejected Amendment 66. It’s a gratifying demonstration that the political class, for all its wealth and influence, can still be defeated by ordinary citizens exercising the vote. But sometimes citizens don’t get any vote at all. A

Overhauling U.S. tax rules on overseas earnings could bring about $1 trillion back to the U.S. immediately and boost the economy, according to a new study sponsored by a business group seeking the change. The report by former Clinton administration economist Laura Tyson and two co-authors was sponsored by a group of U.S. firms, the Alliance for Competitive Taxation, which is pushing for the U.S. to adopt the kind of tax system already in use in most other developed countries. The report is part of a push by big business to get Congress to switch from the current system, in which corporate

BERLIN — Seventy-five years ago, Nechama Drober, a German Jew, looked out her bedroom window in the medieval port city of Koenigsberg to see her synagogue in flames. Drober, now 86, recalls the horror. “The large temple with its golden cupola, it was the most beautiful synagogue I have ever seen.” But she also remembers that it was only the beginning. “The next day, my dad was arrested, and our landlord evicted us. All I could think of was the song we had sung in summer camp the years before, ‘Jew, where in this world can you go?’” Saturday marks the 75th anniversary

Bell´s nomination must be approved by the Senate. She raised more than $500,000 for the Obama campaign, according to its disclosure of campaign bundlers.

Retired chemist Edward Schokowitz was incredulous when he received a letter from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey early last month saying his Medicare Advantage Plan, which had no premium, would be eliminated next year. “They took all the senior citizens and threw us out of the plan. They now want to give us the same plan for $153 [per month],” he told the Daily Caller. “The President said you can’t be kicked out of your plan. He lies.” Schokowitz is one of many Medicare beneficiaries now learning that — like Americans who buy insurance on the individual market —
