Obamacare’s Criminal Enterprise
Creators Syndicate, Inc., by Michelle Malkin

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 2/19/2014 5:03:53 PM

Question: If Obamacare officials cannot prevent accused embezzlers from infiltrating their offices, how can they protect enrollees from grifters, con artists, and thieves in the federal health-insurance-exchange system? Here in my home state, a director of Connect for Health Colorado — the state-sponsored Obamacare health-insurance exchange — was just put on administrative leave. No, Christa Ann McClure did not go on leave over the chronic problems plaguing the cursed Connect for Health website. She’s on leave because she has been indicted for filching funds from her last employer in Montana.

I wonder if the country would be any worse off if it were run by the Mafia.

The only word missing from the article was ACORN.

How many nonprofits across the country are fleecing the system ? I know of some.

The whole Federal Government is a criminal enterprise. When Congress can legally engage in insider-trading, but Joe Citizen will be hauled off to jail (e.g. Martha Stewart, Mark Cuban), then there´s definitely something rotten in the state of Dem-mark.
Now we have the infamous Congressional exemption from Obamascare and wiavers for the "Fiends Of Barack", and the beginning of the reign of the Electeds over the Proletariats.

We´re getting ripe for revolution in this country. If the States were wise they´d form a Constitutional Convention and shut down the Federal Government and clean house on it before bloodshed occurs.

De Blasio turning on friends in
charter school, pre-K battles
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 3/12/2014 2:11:44 PM     Post Reply
There are no silver linings to Mayor de Blasio’s ham-fisted attacks on charter schools, but his strange ­behavior is providing clarity in several key ways. First, the attacks illustrate how important charters have become. What started as an experiment with a few schools has grown into a genuine movement, one that is thrusting New York into the forefront of educational reform. The actual size of the charter footprint is small — only 70,000 students out of more than 1 million in the city. But the stakes couldn’t be higher, because if charters can make it here, they can make it

Arizona Gov. Brewer

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) announced Wednesday that she will not seek a third term, ending months of speculation that she might challenge state law in order to seek four more years in office. "There does come a time to pass the torch of leadership. After completing this term in office, I will be doing just that," Brewer said in a speech at the school her children attended. Brewer had left the door open to running for a third term even though Arizona law limits governors to two terms. She has argued that because she took over for Democrat Janet

Greeted by a handful of audible boos and jeers, Rick Perry was able to win over the audience when he took the stage during Jimmy Kimmel’s visit to Austin on Tuesday night. As part of a Kimmel’s week-long set of shows in association with South by Southwest, the longest-serving Texas governor chatted with the late-night host about his stance on marijuana legalization, his concealed-carry permit, and his future plans. Perry attributed the Austin crowd’s initial harsh reception to the city’s unique character, one that differs from most of the rest of the state; he described Austin as “the blueberry in the

   

 

  


 
Oh, by the way: Obama just quietly suspended
ObamaCare’s individual mandate until 2016

He forgot to mention it. Minor oversight, could have happened to anybody. The mandate, remember, has already been suspended this year for people who had their old insurance canceled and who now regard it as a “hardship” to purchase insurance on the supposedly affordable Affordable Care Act exchanges. For them, as Ezra Klein put it at the time, “ObamaCare itself is the hardship.” But there’s an obvious problem with that scheme: The “hardship” exemption applies only to people who used to have insurance, and it applies only for this enrollment period. The mandate penalty would continue to bite people who didn’t

ObamaCare´s future after law´s
disastrous debut, low enrollment
Fox News, by Yevgeniy Feyman    Original Article

President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act, has been off to what can be described, at best, as a rocky start. Thanks to a terribly designed website, far from the Amazon.com-like experience promised by the administration, the first day of open enrollment saw a grand total of six people enroll. By day two, that number had jumped exponentially to an “astounding” 248. Glitches, crashes, problems with the payment system, less than stellar enrollment by millennials and all sorts of other tech failures have led to the administration paring down its estimate of 7 million enrollees by the end of

A huge explosion rocked two East Harlem buildings Wednesday morning, causing them to collapse. Police said two women are confirmed dead and at least 16 others were injured. At least 12 people are still unaccounted for and the death toll could rise, law enforcement sources said. The two buildings affected are a piano shop with apartments above and a building that houses a church, both located at 116th Street and Park Avenue.

The New York City Fire Department responded this morning to a building collapse and reports of an explosion in Manhattan. Fire officials said shortly after 9:45 a.m. that they were responding to a reported explosion at 1646 Park Avenue. The status of people in or around the building remains unclear. There are reports of people trapped in the rubble, according to the New York Times, but these reports have not been confirmed. (UPDATE, 10:54 A.M.: The Associated Press is reporting 11 injuries.)

Why a Republican Wave in 2014

Tuesday night´s special election in Florida should be a serious scare for Democrats who worry that Obamacare will be a major burden for their party in 2014. Despite recruiting favored candidate Alex Sink, outspending Republicans, and utilizing turnout tools to help motivate reliable voters, Democrats still lost to Republican lobbyist David Jolly—and it wasn´t particularly close. The Republican tool: lots of advertisements hitting Sink over Obamacare, even though she wasn´t even in Congress to vote for it. Sink´s response was from the Democratic playbook: Call for fixes, but hit her opponent for supporting repeal. Sink won 46 percent of the vote,

Buildings Collapse After Explosion,
Fire In East Harlem
CBS News, by Staff    Original Article

NEW YORK – Two buildings have collapsed after an explosion Wednesday morning in East Harlem. It happened around 9 a.m. on Park Avenue on 116th Street, the FDNY said. One of the buildings that collapsed had a piano repair shop with apartments above. The second building housed a church. It’s unclear if anyone was inside the buildings at the time of the explosion. Officials believe the buildings were both 5 stories tall.
The FDNY says so far, 16 injuries have been reported, four serious and 12 minor. Harlem Hospital says it received one patient with serious trauma. Video from the scene shows heavy smoke rising from the area as hundreds of firefighters battle the blaze, which has been upgraded to five-alarms. Debris and rubble could be seen scattered all over the area.

Ronan Farrow has the kind of resume that’s difficult to match. He graduated from college at the tender age of 15; went on to collect degrees from Yale Law School and Oxford U., the latter on a Rhodes scholarship; and worked at the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs and for the Obama administration. Impressive as all that is, none of those credentials finishes among the top three reasons MSNBC gave him his own show last month. In ascending order, they are: the endless promotional value that comes with his being the progeny of Mia Farrow; his movie-star good looks;

It has been a decade since Mel Gibson made The Passion Of The Christ and watched it become the biggest-grossing independent film with $612 million in worldwide ticket sales. In the years that followed, Gibson made several comments that went public, made him seem anti-Semitic and racist. They made him persona non grata at major studios and agencies, the same ones that work with others who’ve committed felonies and done things far more serious than Gibson, who essentially used his tongue as a lethal weapon. As a journalist who vilified Gibson in The New York Times and Entertainment Weekly until

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

In an online comedy bit with comedian Zach Galifianakis, Pres. Obama asks what could be considered a very serious question. In a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website, Obama asks Galifianakis if he thinks First Lady Michelle Obama would marry a nerd: (Video) Zack Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.

Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping.
