Obama’s New Delay of Employer
Mandate Violates Plain Language of Law

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/10/2014 7:15:37 PM

President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department issued a new regulation today that for the second time directly violates the plain and unambiguous text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by allowing some businesses to avoid the law’s Dec. 31, 2013 deadline to provide health insurance coverage to their employees. Initially, on July 2, 2013, the administration unilaterally delayed the deadline for the employer mandate until 2015. Now, the administration is unilaterally delaying it for some businesses until 2016. In its official summary of PPACA, the Congressional Research Service said: “(Sec. 1513, as modified by section 10106) Imposes fines on

Where in the Constitution does it allow the President to not enforce a section of a law on a whim?

It would seem to me that if the President of the United States declared that he was going to ignore the law and make his own law by decree, that would warrant an emergency petition by the House of Representatives to the Supreme Court. And what do we hear from the Cowardly Lion (Boehner) and co-conspirators, crickets. I am done with the lot of these cretins. Does anybody know what the immigration requirements are for New Zealand?

OK, so what? Who´s going to stop him? Full implementation of this law needs to be done before the 2014 election so the people can feel the full effect for this disaster and can vote their feelings. But, it won´t and can´t happen. Republican leaders Johnny Boehner and McConnell don´t have the stomach for a fight and if they did, it wouldn´t make it through the courts in time before the election.

For three years, I´ve heard that it was difficult, near impossible, to file a suit against Dear Leader(US) and the government to stop Obamacare (we came close until CJ Roberts played games, but I digress).

I kept hearing that we had to have plantiffs who had "standing," who were "injured" by Obamacare.

Okay. Now the "law" or what passes for what parts of the "law" that Dear Leader(US) wants to enforce is in effect. Somebody´s gotta have "standing" by now.

Maybe a suit for "specific performance," that is, following the LAW, would be in order.

He probably figures that they will never be able to come up with a victim who has "standing" as long as his changes tell employers that they don´t have to do, instead of telling them that they have to do something that is over and beyond the law.

Russia ´planned Wall Street bear raid´

There is a cynicism in the relationship between Russia and the US, being played out in the Crimean crisis, which is deep, rooted in history and shows that the triumph of capitalism over communism wasn´t the end of the power game between these two nations. The depth of mistrust between the two was highlighted in the interview given by Hank Paulson, the former US treasury secretary, for my recent BBC Two documentary, How China Fooled The World. The excerpts I am about to quote never made it into the film, because they weren´t relevant to it. But they give a

First lady Michelle Obama "has been looking for an opportunity to go to China," a White House official said on Monday. And she considers it a "real treat" to take her daughters and her mother with her -- a trip she´s making at considerable expense to taxpayers, although the White House refused to give a dollar figure.

White House advisers on Monday described First Lady Michelle Obama’s upcoming official trip to China as focused on cultural exchanges and the value of education, not on human rights and divisive issues they say are discussed when her husband speaks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. “The nature of her visit is really quite different,” said Ben Rhodes, deputy National Security advisor for Strategic Communications, on a conference call with reporters. “What the First Lady really brings is the power of her own story, the power of American values.” The first lady will tell of her own modest upbringing when she visits

Bill Clinton’s efforts to combat heart disease may be working. When asked about her father’s past health issues and his recent efforts to get healthy, Chelsea Clinton says Bill Clinton’s heart may be the youngest it’s been in a decade: “He went to the doctor recently,” Clinton said today during the web series, ‘Mondays with Marlo.’ “And his doctor told him that his heart today is much younger than it was even 10 years ago.” Since undergoing heart surgery in 2010, the former President, 67, has drastically changed his lifestyle — going vegan and losing more than 30-pounds in an

On Sunday, the city of New York marked St. Patrick’s Day with its historic parade – but this year, Mayor Bill De Blasio was missing. The reason: parade organizers have banned political messages, including pro-homosexuality messages. The same situation unfolded in Boston, where Mayor Martin Walsh boycotted their St. Patrick’s Day parade over organizers refusing access to a gay group. Is all of this due to some latent or overt homophobia on the part of parade organizers? Of course not – pro-lifers and National Rifle Association members cannot carry banners for their causes, either. Ireland’s head of government, Enda Kennedy,

Missing Plane’s Path Seen as

WASHINGTON — The first turn to the west that diverted the missing Malaysia Airlines plane from its planned flight path from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing was carried out through a computer system that was most likely programmed by someone in the plane’s cockpit who was knowledgeable about airplane systems, according to senior American officials. Instead of manually operating the plane’s controls, whoever altered Flight 370’s path typed seven or eight keystrokes into a computer on a knee-high pedestal between the captain and the first officer, according to officials. The Flight Management System, as the computer is known, directs the plane

SEPANG, Malaysia — When hijackers took control of four airplanes on Sept. 11, 2001, and sent them hurtling low across the countryside toward New York and Washington, frantic passengers and flight attendants turned on cellphones and air phones and began making calls to loved ones, airline managers and the authorities. But when Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 did a wide U-turn in the middle of the night over the Gulf of Thailand and then spent nearly half an hour swooping over two large Malaysian cities and various towns and villages, there was apparently silence.

Putting the first man on the moon may have seemed like a giant leap at the time, but it will soon seem like a tiny step if Stephen Hawking´s plans for space exploration come to pass. During last night’s Live from Space programme, the renowned astrophysicist said we will have settlements on the moon ‘within 50 years’, and believes there will be people living on Mars by 2100. And if we fail to colonise new planets, Professor Hawking believes the human race faces imminent extinction because there will be too many of us for the Earth to support. Scroll down

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, made it clear to the world that he doesn’t smoke, but his recent social media content sure was smoking. Cruz, on Friday, had a little fun with mysterious posters hung up around Los Angeles showing the conservative Republican shirtless, covered in tattoos and smoking a cigarette. (Tweet) That tweet received more than 3,100 retweets, according to Twitter, and gave Cruz a huge social media bump, according to data from TrendPo, a D.C.-based startup that measures political social media analytics.

State officials are moving to fire CGI, the contractor responsible for Massachusetts’ broken health exchange website, and are starting to search for a new vendor, the state’s Obamacare czar said this morning. “We have made the decision that we are going to be parting ways with CGI,” Sarah Iselin said. “We have just begun the process of negotiating what we hope will be a very careful transition.” Iselin said the goal is to have the website working by the fall — a full year after its initial launch. Because of its myriad glitches, the Health Connector has had to enroll

Commentators with a cruel memory have recalled the moment from one of the 2012 president debates when President Obama cited Mitt Romney’s warning about the growing threat from Russia and dismissed it with a superficially sophisticated one-liner: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.”When I hear President Obama threatening to impose consequences on Vladimir Putin et al., or imposing them, as he did today, I think: “The 1930s are now calling to ask for their piece of paper back.” The piece of paper would be the one Obama carries in his pocket whenever he meets

SAN FRANCISCO - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration. "We have a responsibility to those who do not yet have the liberties and the rights that we enjoy," Rice told a cheering crowd at the annual gathering of California Republicans in the San Francisco suburb of Burlingame. "We cannot abandon them ... We were once them." She did not offer a specific policy idea. The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W.

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing.

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

One of our planes is missing. That’s basically all we know for certain right now, but more than a week after losing contact with flight MH370, there are a lot of other suggestive bits of information. Unfortunately, a lot of it is, as usual, being reported by news readers who barely understand that you don’t want to keep the pointy end aimed at the ground for an extended time. Here’s some things we do know now. The first indication of trouble was when the transponder stopped responding to radar. This is the point where newspeople are saying it “dropped off the radar,”
