The Obamacare Fraud
American Thinker, by David Weber    Original Article
Posted By: geo11- 8/8/2014 3:38:07 AM     Post Reply
As millions of Americans struggle with additional increases in their healthcare premiums, loss of their preferred coverage, loss of family doctors, loss of full-time employment and other adverse effects of Obamacare implementation, we are seeing the resurrection of several timeworn arguments from its supporters on social media, advocacy groups, and of course, the modern-day media. Although many in number, certain stalwart augments of the Left get my attention in that key misrepresentations now seem to be woven into the fabric of the American masses.

Sirens have sounded in Ashkelon, Hof Ashkelon, the Eshkol region, and the Gaza Belt area as of 8:00 am Friday, as a 72-hour ceasefire ended between Israel and terrorist organizations in Gaza. Residents of Ashkelon, Hof Ashkelon, Be´er Ganim, Zikim, Holit, Nir Yitzhak, Sufa, Netiv Ha´esreh, Yad Mordehai, and Carmia, have rushed to shelters. The Iron Dome missile defense system shot down one rocket over the Ashkelon area. There are no reports yet on additional hits, injuries, or damage.

President Obama, who ran for office on a platform of ending U.S. military hostilities in Iraq, said Thursday night that he had authorized ´targeted airstrikes if necessary´ in an effort to protect the delivery of humanitarian aid to threatened Iraqis, and to ensure the safety of US personnel delivering the assistance. ´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger,´ Obama said in an 8-minute speech delivered from the White House´s State Dining Room But American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, he insisted, and the U.S. won´t

Rusty Tiger Woods watches rival
Phil Mickelson outplay him at
PGA Championship at Valhalla

LOUISVILLE - Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have never golfed the same way, certainly not when they were at the top of their respective games. But in watching his playing partner at the PGA Championship Thursday, Woods could have seen something familiar in his old rival. Mickelson, 2-over par through eight holes, pulled it together, went on a bit of a birdie run on his back nine, and signed for a 2-under-par 69. It was the bounce-back quality that Woods always possessed, a quality that is currently lost because he doesn’t have the game to pull it off. Wood’s 3-over-par

Rockets fired from the Gaza Strip crashed into Israel Friday, the army said, less than four hours from the scheduled expiry of a three-day truce. "Just now, two rockets fired from Gaza hit southern Israel. No injuries reported," the army said in a text message to journalists ahead of the 0500 GMT deadline for the truce to be renewed or collapse. "Terrorists have violated the cease-fire," it added on its official Twitter site. Israel has said it is ready to "indefinitely" extend the 72-hour lull but there has so far been no announcement from Hamas, whose representatives and those of

The Last of the Yezhidis

The Obama administration has reached what one might call the ‘Pol Pot Aftermath’ of its Middle Eastern policy. Michael Totten notes that ISIS is massacring the Yezhidis, people who practice “the original religion of the Kurds. ” What is worse, according to the New Yorker magazine, this massacre is genocide. George Packer describes the travails of his friend Karim, who “spent years working for the U.S. Army in his area, then for an American medical charity. He’s been waiting for months to find out whether the U.S. government will grant him a Special Immigrant Visa because of his service, and

The President Goes Back to Iraq

And so we come full circle. Nearly three years since Barack Obama decided to trade defeat for victory in Iraq by allowing his feckless vice president to fail to “negotiate” a status-of-forces agreement with the Iraqi government he did not really wish to have—since the president wanted to leave, leave, leave, as he had said he would do in 2007—circumstances of the simplest human decency have compelled him to commit U.S. forces to stave off the genocide of the Yazidi sect in Iraq. He is not responsible for the monstrous actions of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria—in no

Barack Obama has authorised military airstrikes over northern Iraq in order to “prevent genocide” being carried out by Islamist extremists against Christians and other minorities. The US President said late on Thursday night he would approve targeted strikes on fighters from the Islamic State should they advance towards the city of Erbil, to protect US diplomatic and military staff stationed there. "Earlier this week, one Iraqi in the area cried to the world, there is no one coming to help. Well, today America is coming to help," Mr Obama said. Innocent families face the prospect of "genocide," he said. The

Throngs of Secret Service agents are always on watch for suspicious packages near the White House gates, and anyone who might be looking to infiltrate the grounds. But Thursday night, they had a slightly smaller-scale security breach to contend with: a toddler who squeezed through the fence in the front of the residence. The brief kerfuffle as agents scrambled to intercept the pint-sized intruder confirms what most people know: toddlers are sneaky, and fast. This one was promptly returned to his parents. The little guy didn´t get in any trouble -- at least, not with the feds. And he was

Militant gains in Iraq bring

The increasingly dire straits of refugees in the Kurdish region of Iraq, amid startling gains by Islamist forces there, led President Obama to approve humanitarian airdrops and have propelled the administration into new and urgent consideration of a military intervention it has studiously avoided so far. The lightning advance of the Islamic State militant group, south from the northwest city of Mosul to within 60 miles of Baghdad, has been a source of deep concern since it began two months ago. But the administration worried that interjecting itself into the conflict would inevitably open it to charges of siding with

Police made fliers of a stowaway banned this week from LAX--believing she would return and make another attempt--before she was arrested again Thursday at the airport.

Gannon said he believed she would return, and in fact, she did, possibly on a scouting mission. The fliers with her photograph on them had been distributed to airport police and staff, he said.
