Obamacare is about to
decide the midterms — again
Washington Times, by Joseph Curl    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/3/2014 9:34:59 PM     Post Reply
Analysis/Opinion: The @#%& is about to hit the fan. No, not ISIS moving to attack the West, not Russia invading Ukraine, not Ebola coming to America, not the Middle East, not Libya (where al Qaeda — surprise — now rules), not even Ferguson. Health care costs are about to explode — again — and just in time for the 2014 midterm elections. When the supermajority of Democrats in the Senate passed the ironically named Affordable Care Act in 2009, one of the chief requirements of the bill was to force health insurers, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and health care centers to share in the staggering $2 trillion cost over

During a press conference in Estonia on Wednesday morning, President Obama was asked about the purpose of the NATO alliance, ahead of a conference with allies in Wales. Obama described NATO as “unique in the annals of history” because of its success but admitted that the group had to move quickly to address evolving global threats. “We have to recognize that threats evolve, and threats have evolved as a consequence of what we’ve seen in Ukraine, but threats are also evolving in the Middle East that have a direct effect on Europe,” he said. He added that the “international community”

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. this week will launch a broad civil rights investigation into the Ferguson, Mo., Police Department, according to two federal law enforcement officials. The investigation, which could be announced as early as Thursday afternoon, will be conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division and follow a process similar to that used to investigate complaints of profiling and the use of excessive force in other police departments across the country, the officials said. The move follows the shooting last month of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American, by a white Ferguson police officer who

President Barack Obama believes that many foreigners have a right to immigrate into the United States, regardless of what Americans prefer, say immigration experts. The evidence emerged from the president’s mouth on Labor Day, as Obama was urging his supporters (Snip) “Cynicism is a bad choice… Hope is what gives young people the strength to march for women’s rights, and worker’s rights, and civil rights, and voting rights, and gay rights and immigration rights,” Obama told union supporters gathered Sept. 1 in Milwaukee, Wisc. That “immigration rights” phrase “implies that some people have the right to move here,”

Bloomberg LP, the media company that operates data terminals and a financial news wires service for financiers, said late Wednesday that current president and CEO Daniel L. Doctoroff will step down at the end of the year as former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg resumes executive control of the company he founded in 1981. Bloomberg, who still owns nearly 90% of the privately-held company, will not name a replacement since he plans to run it with support from other executives in the company, the company said. Doctoroff, 56, is a close friend of Bloomberg and served as his deputy mayor.

Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week, according to a report in Popular Science. Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts. Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, used ESD´s CryptoPhone 500 to detect 17 bogus cellphone towers. ESD is a leading American defense and law enforcement technology provider based in Las Vegas. With most phones, these fake communication towers are undetectable. But not for the CryptoPhone 500, a customized Android device that is disguised as a Samsung

Saw this last night on Fox and had such a good laugh, I feel obliged to pass it along today. There’s no way to prove he said it, but as Megyn Kelly’s quick to show with archived audio, that quote is well in line with the kind of crap Obama was telling himself and the rest of the electorate circa 2007. The most famous summation of his I-am-the-change approach to problem-solving is this one from Andrew Sullivan, written right around the time that audio was recorded: What does he offer? First and foremost: his face. Think of it as the

Scientists have redrawn the cosmic map of our corner of the universe, using new tools to define which galaxies interact with our own. The so-called supercluster of galaxies that contains the Milky Way has been named "Laniakea," which means "immense heaven" in Hawaiian. Defining regions in an infinite universe is tricky business: Clusters of dozens of galaxies, called local groups, are further bound into clusters containing hundreds of galaxies. The Laniakea supercluster, described in a paper published in this week´s Nature, is 500 million light-years in diameter and contains 100,000 galaxies - and we sit at the very edge of

Attkisson said the Obama administration seems to be intentionally stonewalling by not answering letters from members of Congress or reporters questions. She added the only recourse is a FIOA lawsuit that will take years to go

Earlier today, President Barack Obama said that America’s goal should be to “shrink” the Islamic State until it is a “manageable problem.” His own vice president, Joe Biden, later contradicted him, saying that we will “follow ISIS to the gates of Hell, because Hell is where they will reside.” This afternoon, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki did a “what he really meant to say” routine. (snip) Fox’s James Rosen noted the president’s own contradictory comments, which went from wanting to destroy ISIS, to wanting to roll it back, to wanting to leave it as a “manageable problem.” All of those

One of the world’s legendary investors is upping his bet on Argentina’s shale oil and gas industry in a show of confidence for shale production in South America’s largest unconventional prize —and a big boost for both super-majors and smaller players making big waves in the heart of new discovery areas. George Soros has doubled his stake in YPF SA, the state-owned oil company in Argentina, which sits atop some of the world’s largest shale oil and gas resources, and is about to get even larger following a new discovery over the last couple of weeks of a second key

Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has announced the formation of an Indian branch of his global armed group that he said would spread Islamic rule and "raise the flag of jihad" across the subcontinent. In a video spotted in online "jihadist" forums on Wednesday by the SITE terrorism monitoring group, Zawahiri said the new force would "crush the artificial borders" dividing Muslim populations in the region. Al-Qaeda is active in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where its surviving leadership are thought to be hiding out, but Zawahiri said the group would take the fight to India, Myanmar and Bangladesh.

The two brothers attracted worldwide attention in December 2008 after they alerted federal agents that their father, a respected Wall Street statesman, had confessed to them that his private investment management business was a vast Ponzi scheme.

H&R Block CEO says Obamacare

The top executive for H&R Block, the nation’s largest tax preparer, on Wednesday said he expected President Obama’s health care law to add “significant complexity” to next year’s tax season. Speaking on H&R Block’s quarterly earnings conference call, CEO William Cobb said that the company was already taking steps to train its tax preparers based on the draft forms that the Internal Revenue Service has released to comply with Obamacare. “As expected, the forms are very detailed and can present significant complexity, depending on a filer’s coverage status during the year, income level, and household composition,” Cobb said.

Paul Rahe, currently at Hillsdale College, is an eminent scholar whose many books combine awesome erudition and bedrock common sense. He is also a member of the American Political Science Association and attended that organization’s annual convention in Washington over Labor Day weekend. He reports on ricochet.com on what he found there — or, rather, didn’t find. There were more than 1,000 panels on a vast variety of subjects —but nothing on the presidency of Barack Obama or the upcoming 2014 elections. Some subjects, it appears, are better left unspoken of. Rahe notes that there were many panels on
