ACA-scuse me? Ag companies sift
through employer mandate confusion

If you’re an employer with more than 50 workers, you must comply with the employer mandate to offer health insurance starting Jan. 1, 2015 — unless you’re a medium-sized employer with 50 to 99 employees, in which case the mandate is delayed a year. To avoid penalties, you must offer coverage to full-time employees; that is, those who work at least 30 hours a week or 130 hours a month — but you can impose a 90-day waiting period before starting coverage. For seasonal workers, you can decide at the beginning of each month who among your workers will be

Obama has got to be kidding

He actually said this: the system “is so broken” that “folks don’t know what the rules are." He was referring to the children’s crusade on our borders that has caused chaos as tens of thousands of people try to illegally enter America - a crisis he has created by lax, or no-enforcement, of our immigration laws and by issuing executive orders that basically re-created the Dream Act - a law that could not pass Congress. But the statement was just stunning in its disingenuousness and yet another example of the most hypocritical president in American history. Does anyone know what the rules of

Get ready for an even bigger

Now that the Supreme Court has issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, the legal fight over the Affordable Care Act will shift a few blocks away to another Washington courtroom, where a far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare is about to be decided by the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Indeed, if Hobby Lobby will create complications for Obamacare, Halbig vs. Burwell could trigger a full cardiac arrest. The Halbig case challenges the massive federal subsidies in the form of tax credits made available to people with financial need who enroll in the program. In crafting the act, Congress created incentives

The woman who police say viciously attacked a New Jersey mother in front of her two-year-old son has turned herself into authorities. Latia Harris, 25, surrendered to police on Monday night in relation to last week´s brutal that was captured on video. Authorities say they were ´close to capturing´ the fugitive over the weekend in Philadelphia. Harris faces two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of making terroristic threats. The 4´9" tall, 100 pound Ferreira says the attack left her with a broken nose and a mild concussion. Police say Harris is the attacker seen in the video wearing a red McDonald´s

The same failure-to-thrive cultural ennui gripping Italy, Japan, and a host of other “advanced countries” is evident among Americans of European descent. Katherine Peralta writes in US News: For the second year in a row, the number of non-Hispanic white deaths in 2013 outweighed the number of white births, signaling an increasingly older and diversified American public. (snip) Those on the left informed by an ideology equating virtue with ethnic victimization will cheer this development. Whites, as the oppressor race (by virtue of having invented and first exploited the Scientific and Industrial Revolutions), are a parasitic disease inflicted on the

Fox’s Megyn Kelly passionately defended religious liberty on “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday after the Supreme Court sided in favor of Hobby Lobby in a 5-4 decision. O’Reilly played a clip of Sandra Fluke on Chris Matthews’ MSNBC show Monday night, where Fluke described the decision as an attempt to limit women’s access to health care, saying “What this is really about at its base is trying to figure out as many ways as possible to limit women’s access to reproductive healthcare.” Kelly wasted no time in launching into an explanation of the ridiculousness of Flukes allegation. “It hurts, it hurts,

Mark Mayfield´s family plans to sue or bring charges against the city of Madison, its police department or "anyone responsible" after Mayfield´s apparent suicide Friday. Mayfield´s relatives, already angered over his arrest in May in the U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran photo scandal, say Madison police were trespassing when they showed up at his home in Ridgeland after he apparently shot himself. They say Mayfield´s arrest was politically motivated by supporters of Cochran and drove him to suicide. "The funeral is (Tuesday), but the first of next week, we will be suing the city of Madison," said Mayfield´s nephew, Ridgeland Alderman Wesley Hamlin.

  


  

Immigration Criminal Voted for Gun Ban

One of the chief concerns of America’s Founders in the early days of the Republic was the possibility that foreigners would usurp American political power. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 68, “[the] most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally be expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain improper [ascendancy] in our councils.” The possibility that foreigners might gain political power and subvert traditional American values is even more acute in today’s climate of mass illegal immigration.

Obama: White House Pies So Good,

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama had a bit of a weird moment at the White House tonight during an LGBT reception when the president praised the exquisite work of the White House Executive Pastry Chef and joked if he puts crack in them. A crack joke at the White House. Bet you never saw that coming. The Obamas said they were sad to see Bill Yosses leave the White House. The president said, “His pies––I don’t know what he does, whether he puts crack in them––but…” The first lady quickly jumped in to clarify that no, “there is no crack in our

Rick Perry Or Ted Cruz For 2016?

Two Texans may be vying for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz and Governor Rick Perry. Cruz overwhelmingly won the Texas GOP 2016 convention straw poll, confirming his position as the conservative grassroots candidate. He fires up crowds unlike any other politician today, and the power of motivating voters and volunteers should not be underestimated. But will he run in 2016? The signs point to yes. One of his staffers left his office to start a committee to draft him into running. He has visited the early states and spent many weekends during his first 18 months in office raising

White House fears al Qaeda

plot on airliner flying to US

The United States fears that two of al-Qaeda´s most deadly international offshoots are plotting to bring down a commercial airliner with the help of European jihadists returning from Syria. The White House is debating asking its allies to step up airport security in response to the new threat from the terror group´s Syrian and Yemeni branches, meaning British travellers could face intensified screenings. The American plan, reported by ABC News, could call for an influx of armed US air marshals on British flights or an increase in searches of passengers headed to the US.

John Kerry Told Russia It Had ´Hours´ to

Last week, John Kerry said that Russia needed to pull back in Ukraine in a matter of "hours, literally." But more than 100 hours later, Russia has done no such thing. The secretary of State delivered the order to de-escalate within hours, paired with a warning of future U.S. action, on Thursday in Paris, after a meeting with France´s foreign minister. "We are in full agreement that it is critical for Russia to show in the next hours, literally, that they are moving to help disarm the separatists, to encourage them to disarm, to call on them to lay down their weapons

Hillary Clinton needs a conscience transplant, and she needs it now. Her book tour is in a shambles, the fate of her $14 million advance from her publisher is marooned somewhere in limbo. She’s under 50 percent approval for the first time in the presidential polling for 2016, and, scariest of all, she’s having to call on Bubba for help. She knows better than to become merely “a wife of,” but 2014 is beginning to smell like 2008, and she’s Miss Inevitability once more. This is dj vu all over again.

Why India Is Right On Organics:
Anti-GMO Activists Are Pro-Death Activists
Daily Caller, by Mischa Popoff    Original Article

India’s intelligence agency is targeting anti-GMO activists as a threat to the economy. But officials in America remain willing to hold “dialogue” with the enemies of progress, hoping to arrive at a “consensus.” When Spock says “live long and prosper,” he’s not talking about banning technologies to preserve a cottage industry, or hinder the sort of agricultural growth that transformed India from an agronomic basket case into a food export nation in less than a generation. But, having never experienced mass starvation as Indian policy makers have, American policy makers are rushing to negotiate with the same food terrorists who

Pam Harris, the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court case Harris v. Quinn, was watching the news Monday with some of her co-plaintiffs when the announcement came that they had won. As the verdict was being read, one of the co-plaintiffs whispered into Harris´ ear, "It looks like they knocked on the wrong door." That´s probably the one thing that officials with the state of Illinois, the defendant in the case, and the Service Employees International Union, which could lose thousands of members as a result of the ruling, would agree on after Monday´s ruling. Five years ago, Harris was an unpretentious Illinois

In Obama’s most recent — and embarrassing — public whine, he lashed out at the once-obsequious press. In his now customary first-person I/me/my/mine lament (e.g., “They don’t do anything, except block me and call me names. . . . If they were more interested in growing the economy for you and the issues that you are talking about instead of trying to mess with me, we would be doing a lot better. . . . The critics, the cynics in Washington, they’ve written me off more times than I can count.”), he lambasted the partisan culture of Washington. He lashed

The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense

Though President Obama vowed to run the most transparent administration in history, his White House has quietly empowered itself to censor or delay the release of information in ways that not even Richard Nixon envisioned during the Watergate scandal, according to federal workers on the front lines of processing open records requests. The workers, who spoke to The Washington Times only on the condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal, said that an April 15, 2009, memo from White House Counsel Gregory Craig to all federal agencies has slowed, and in some cases nixed, the public release of government documents that

In the latest stinging First Amendment brushback to President Obama, the Supreme Court on Monday held the contraceptive mandate unlawful as applied to companies such as Hobby Lobby. Mark Rienzi, the Becket Fund lawyer who represented Hobby Lobby: “The Court confirmed that Americans don’t give up their religious freedom when they open a family business.” Contrary to the hysterica (e.g., the White House press secretary’s claim the ruling “jeopardizes the health of women”) the decision does not limit access to contraceptives. All it means is that employees cannot demand they be provided — free — by family businesses with religious objections. This ruling hinges

  



EU migrants milking benefits
will be KICKED OUT of Britain

Jobless EU migrants claiming benefits will be booted out of Britain from tomorrow if they show no sign of finding work. Ministers say the radical measure is an attempt to give Britain the toughest controls on migrants in the world. It means those who have been claiming jobseeker’s allowance for six months will have to undergo “prospect of work” interviews to determine whether they can stay in the country. Those who do not have a job offer or the imminent prospect of finding work will lose their right to reside in the UK--leaving many liable to be sent home.

A Disregarded Request From a Beloved

WAIANAE, Hawaii — For over 50 years, Senator Daniel K. Inouye, a Democrat, was the closest thing modern-day Hawaii had to political royalty: He began representing the state in Washington two years before its most famous citizen was even born. As he lay dying in 2012, Mr. Inouye asked the governor, Neil Abercrombie, to appoint Representative Colleen Hanabusa, a protégée and the daughter of a gas station owner here, to fill his seat. But Mr. Abercrombie, a fellow Democrat, disregarded that deathbed request, choosing his lieutenant governor, Brian Schatz, as the interim senator instead. Eighteen months later, the decision to defy one

President Obama urged “all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation” after the bodies of three kidnapped Israeli teens were found. Eyal Yifrach, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, were kidnapped from the kibbutz Kfar Etzion in the West Bank. Naftali was a dual citizen with an American passport. The youths were walking home from their yeshiva about halfway between Jerusalem and Hebron, possibly hitchhiking as public transportation in the area is scarce. One of the boys reportedly got a call into Israeli police to say “we’re being kidnapped” at about 10:30 p.m. before the line
