Insurers say they´re in
Obamacare for the long haul

President Obama´s health care law may have gotten off to a rocky start, but executives of major private health insurance companies are informing investors that they´re still betting on the program in the long run. Speaking at a health care conference sponsored by JPMorgan this week, insurers indicated that that they viewed the 2014 implementation of the health care law as a learning opportunity. Over time, the health care law’s expansion of Medicaid and creation of government-run insurance exchanges promises to funnel hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer money into the insurance industry. And insurers don’t want to miss out on

In a shocking development, the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., has put its weight and prestige behind the bogus “news organization” Al Jazeera and its reporters, now jailed in Egypt, for associating with the pro-terrorist Muslim Brotherhood. A statement issued by the NPC calls for the “immediate release” of “imprisoned Al Jazeera journalists” in Egypt, but fails to take into account the pro-terrorist nature of this so-called “independent” news organization and its documented links to the Muslim Brotherhood. NPC President Angela Greiling Keane, whose name appears on the statement, is a reporter for Bloomberg News who mostly covers transportation issues and

There are lots of Americans who, after the first five years of living under the governance of Barack Hussein Obama, have concluded that, among his most notable characteristics, he is an incompetent, a pathological liar, a Marxist, and, fearful as the prospect is, a potential dictator who will not leave office when a new President is due to be sworn in.The fears are largely based on the astonishingly lax Congress that, with the exception of Rep. Darrell Issa and the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has done little to investigate the many scandals that litter the Obama administration. It doesn’t help



Brown rules out presidential bid

RIVERSIDE — Gov. Jerry Brown said Tuesday that he will not run for president in 2016, dashing political speculation that he might make a fourth bid for the White House. “No, that’s not in the cards. Unfortunately,” he told reporters at a news conference before brightening about his current job: “Actually, California is a lot more governable.” Brown, who ran for president in 1976, 1980 and 1992, was the subject of some speculation recently when his office did not categorically rule out another run, the governor was touting his work in California as a template for the nation and some activists named

Democrats miffed at NBC for

Senate Democrats were not amused to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus puffing away on an electronic cigarette during the Golden Globe Awards. The lawmakers said the Louis-Dreyfus, who plays a fictional vice president on HBO’s “Veep,” helped glamorize smoking on the broadcast, and are pressing NBC Universal to ensure that the “e-cigarettes” are not featured again. “The Golden Globes celebrates entertainers who are an influence on young fans," the Democrats wrote. "We ask the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and NBC Universal to take actions to ensure that future broadcasts of the Golden Globes do not intentionally feature images of e-cigarettes. Such action would help

The Obama administration announced Tuesday that it was again extending the ObamaCare enrollment deadline for people with pre-existing conditions. The administration said it will extend the Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance Plan (PCIP), slated to end January 31, until March 15. “As part of our continuing effort to help smooth consumers’ transition into Marketplace coverage, we are allowing those covered by PCIP additional time to shop for new coverage while they receive the ongoing care and treatment they need,” Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters said in a statement. The deadline was originally at the end of December, but last month the administration pushed

Obama administration under

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is facing rising calls from lawmakers and nuclear experts to release the text of its latest nuclear deal with Iran and accompanying documents. The agreement, announced Sunday, lays out an implementation plan for a deal announced in November that aims to freeze Iran’s nuclear program for six months. During that time, Iran and six world powers will try to negotiate a long-term pact ensuring Tehran won’t develop a nuclear weapons capability. So far, the text of the latest deal has not been released, nor has a separate side agreement that lays out technical and other details. Critics fear

Another interesting turn reported by Fox, that the rest of the media will ignore in favor or running a zillion more stories on bridgegate. Or maybe they’ll spend some time discussing the ins and outs of the Justin Bieber egg-throwing scandal: On the eve of the terrorist attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, the Obama White House may have exaggerated the scope and depth of President Obama’s preparation for such attacks, newly declassified documents show.

Mike Huckabee: Isn’t it time

Apparently someone applied this term to Huck himself and it brought him up short. You’d think he’d be used to it after the millionth time. I’m fine with swapping it out for another term, but how do I describe myself then? “Candy-ass … centrist”? That’s too vague. “Candy-ass … establishmentarian”? Better, but still a mouthful. Few substitutes have the pithy poetic zing of “candy-ass RINO.” “Many of you used a term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party: RINO,” he said, calling it a “pejorative term” that questioned one’s purity… “With all due respect, I’ve

Crony Capitalism: Months ago, we warned that one of the biggest hurdles to repealing ObamaCare would be the insurance industry itself. This week, Blue Cross proved us right. In our September 2013 editorial headlined "Is This Train Wreck Unstoppable?" we pointed out private companies "could end up lobbying for (ObamaCare) in the future, after they´ve conformed their businesses to the many market distortions it will create." Well, the insurance industry is doing just that. In a set of talking points obtained by Buzzfeed this week, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association CEO Scott Serota warns about "momentum that is quickly building among some leading

It’s just two weeks into 2014, but House Republicans are already convinced that the key to winning November’s elections is to talk about President Barack Obama as much as possible. In both public and private discussions, Obama remains the single-minded obsession of all top House Republicans. They can’t get through a sentence without mentioning “Obama” or “Obamacare.” When top Republican leaders gathered last weekend at a boutique inn outside Washington for their annual planning retreat, the bulk of the conversation centered around Obamacare and presenting alternatives to what they consider Democrats’ failed economic policies.



The Rev. Jeremiah Wright joins

The Chicago Teachers Union wants a louder voice in the political world — and to kick off that campaign, it’s turning to a public figure every bit as combative as the union itself: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Wright, of course, is the Chicago pastor who was a spiritual mentor to Barack Obama until the 2008 presidential campaign. Then a video surfaced of Wright shouting from the pulpit, “God damn America.” Then Wright suggested the U.S. had committed terrorism and thus brought the Sept. 11 attacks on itself. Then he opined that the government had created AIDS to kill African-Americans. Obama forcefully

Spending bill strips funding for White

The recently released spending bill would strip the salary of the White House’s climate adviser, stop the Environmental Protection Agency from implementing carbon dioxide emissions limits and clamp down on funding to fight global warming. The bill bars the White House from using any appropriated funds to pay for the salary and any expenses for the “Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change.” The office was recently vacated by former climate adviser Heather Zichal, who helped President Obama craft his new climate plan which bans coal-fired power and was instrumental in promoting other environmental efforts from the White House.

The takeover of Fallujah by al-Qaida wipes out our costly 2004 victory in which we captured the Iraqi city at the cost of 100 Marines and soldiers killed in action, and hundreds more wounded. Fallujah isn´t just an Obama mistake; it´s the exemplar of Obama´s disastrous foreign and military policies designed to reduce the power and prestige of America on the world stage. Obama´s military policies are not merely based on his incompetence. They are part of his personal philosophy to redistribute power in the world, which is the other side of his Saul Alinsky ideology to reduce our standard of living

Barack Obama’s reverse Midas touch

Only U.S. President Barack Obama could manage to pull off such colossal American failures in foreign policy. It’s as if the man has the reverse Midas touch. In fairness, it’s easy for countries to be jealous of America and detest its accomplishments. However, to earn the wrath of both sides in every conflict requires a special skill. Obama has that.(snip)But all of America’s blunders in diplomacy pale when compared to how it has managed to make an adversary out of a natural ally— India. As if it was not enough that Washington was funding India’s archenemy, Pakistan, with billions of dollars in military hardware,

A heroic teacher talked a shooter, aged just 12, into dropping his weapon this morning, just moments after the child walked into a packed gymnasium and opened fire at his classmates, leaving a 12-year-old boy fighting for life and a 13-year-old girl in serious condition. After the first shots rang out at Berrendo Middle School, the unidentified educator was quick to react, throwing himself towards the armed youngster and convincing him to lay his shotgun on the ground, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez and Roswell ISD superintendent Tom Burris revealed in a Tuesday afternoon press conference. ´The student was quickly stopped by

The Law: The FBI says it won´t prosecute anyone at the IRS for its admitted targeting of the president´s political foes. This just as the agency claims the law is no longer its main mission. So it´s a political goon squad now. According to a leak to the Wall Street Journal, the Federal Bureau of Investigation "didn´t find the kind of political bias or ´enemy hunting´ that would amount to a violation of criminal law." And so, nobody was likely to be prosecuted for the most blatant politicization of a federal agency within memory. All the Bureau found was a "mismanaged" agency

Deceit: Newly declassified transcripts show top defense officials who briefed Obama on the day of the Benghazi attack described it as a terrorist attack and told the president so, yet he pushed a false narrative about a video. Just as the new book by former Defense Secretary Bob Gates confirmed what many believed, that President Obama was a politically motivated commander-in-chief who had no faith in an Afghan surge he put 30,000 Americans in harm´s way to execute, transcripts of congressional testimony by military leaders confirm that President Obama knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack before he went to bed to

Shirley Sherrod’s been busy.

No surprise, especially when talk becomes America´s preferred weapon. Maj. Gen. Ataollah Salehi, Iran army commander, observed on Tuesday that the peace deal between America and other major powers and Iran proves the U.S. and Israel can´t beat Iran militarily, because, if they could have, they "would have already taken action." "Given their weakness in the military dimension, they have opted for the political arena, and we will certainly succeed in this area too," he said. The general makes a

NEW YORK – Around 5,000 undocumented students graduate annually from New York public schools but many do not go to college because they haven’t the money to enroll, even though the state legislature passed a bill providing them with access to state financial aid. A group of “dreamers,” as they are known, called on Gov.

The Washington Post wants you to know First Lady Michelle Obama is “more than meets the eye.” To celebrate Mrs. Obama’s upcoming 50th birthday, the publication printed a glowing feature about her in its Express newspaper. The piece lists a few “Myths” about the First Lady, debunking each one with important “explanations.” Here’s just a couple: Myth: She is a food tyrant of Bloombergian intolerance. “Her focus on the nation’s eating habits has led to complaints that she wants to deprive Americans of dessert.

Let´s all be very clear: The FBI did not conduct an “investigation” into the IRS scandal. Not unless there are new protocols for investigating potential unlawful activities, which discard the quaint notion of speaking to the victims. In May, President Obama hurriedly called a White House news conference to stem the outrage about the IRS´s admitted targeting of conservative groups, and emphatically told the nation: “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives."

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday hyperventilated over the latest "fashion milestone" for Michelle Obama, donating four minutes to the First Lady´s second inaugural dress appearing at the Smithsonian. In contrast, the latest setback for ObamaCare warranted only a minute and 19 seconds. Co-host Charlie Rose enthused, "First Lady Michelle Obama is marking another fashion milestone. The Smithsonian Institution decided two dresses are better than one." [See video below.

Fox News reporter Adam Housley has some harsh words for those who levy racially-charged insults at him and his wife Tamera Mowry over their interracial marriage. Earlier today we reported on OWN’s special interview with TV star Mowry, in which she tearfully recounted being called a “white man’s whore,” among other slurs. Speaking with TVNewser, Housley excoriated those who wish to cut down their relationship. “The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic,” he said. “Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not
