HHS updates Medicare enrollment
rules for same-sex couples

Washington Examiner, by Meghashyam Mali

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/3/2014 12:10:49 PM

The Obama administration on Thursday announced that it was updating Medicare rules to allow partners in same-sex marriages to apply for benefits during special enrollment periods. The Department of Health and Human Services said that the Social Security Administration would now be able to take applications for special enrollment periods for Medicare Part A and Part B and reduce late penalties for some eligible same-sex couples. The move is the latest step taken by HHS after the Supreme Court in 2013 struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as a union between one man

Comments:
All this lawless insanity from the left continues on. What is never uttered is the cost and further bankrupting this country that now can´t pay all the entitlements.

@OP: It is not lawless. The ACA allows HHS to make up stuff as they go. It`s written that way. Everyone would have known had they bothered to read the legislation before voting `da`.

What does Medicare enrollment have to do with anyone´s marriage? When you turn 65 you enroll.

AZ Rancher: ´Border Is on Fire and
Washington Is Sending Us Gasoline´
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/14/2014 11:24:41 AM     Post Reply
Arizona ranchers are extending an invitation to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to take a firsthand look at the border crisis. In a video, the pair invited Pelosi to the border, even offering to “send a plane” for her. John Ladd and Fred Davis joined Fox and Friends this morning to share their message. Ladd said the “biggest lie coming out of Washington” is that the border is secure. “My south fence is the international border.” Over half a million illegal immigrants have been caught on Ladd’s ranch. He estimates that over two million people have crossed over into his ranch illegally

Two federal judges acting within 24 hours of each other last Thursday and Friday served notice on the IRS that it´s time to pay up. In doing so, U.S. District Court Judges Emmet G.Sullivan and Reggie Walton have set up what may prove to be the ultimate test of the Constitution´s checks and balances system. Sullivan and Walton both serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Both are well-known as no-nonsense judges who are not to be trifled with. You´ve got one month Sullivan´s decision came on Thursday and it was a shocker. Sullivan ordered the IRS to come back

Washington Post: L´Oréal should hire

Even for a celebrity first lady who consistently out-polls her husband and everybody else in Washington, Saturday’s Washington Post review of her much-publicized “guns” hit a new level of coverage for her fit, model looks. “It´s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms,” wrote restaurant reviewer Tom Sietsema, who was seated near the first lady at the 14th Street Spanish restaurant Barcelona Thursday night. “Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.,” he wrote in Saturday’s paper, adding: “Ma’am, you rock.” Obama´s fit

   

 

  


 
Boko Haram mocks hashtag diplomacy
Breitbart InstaBlog, by John Hayward    Original Article

Further evidence that "hashtag diplomacy" is worse than useless, as the Islamist thugs of Boko Haram release a video mocking the weepy efforts to beg them to release the large number of young women they have abducted: By "bring back our army," he means "release all the captured Boko Haram fighters you´re holding." "Hashtag diplomacy" provides the illusion of action and caring, for people who are more interested in their own image as noble and concerned human-rights crusaders than actually doing something that would help the victims. It´s moralistic posturing and fashionable activism made even easier by the Internet. You don´t

In response to Obama, Democrats Self-Destructing Over Immigration Policy: I think one reason this situation is souring badly enough for even the Washington Post to sound red alerts is that it´s the crisis next door for everyone. It´s not just about pumping states that don´t vote Democrat full of illegal aliens. They´re getting resettled all across the country, leading local officials and law enforcement to raise a hue and cry from coast to cost. For example, sheriffs are speaking out in Boston, of all places. It´s enough to make the Boston Herald sound like a Tea Party newsletter: Illegal immigrants are being secretly

Rick Perry’s burden: Texas already

Critics say Texas Gov. Rick Perry is trying to politicize the border crisis only to bolster a potential White House run in 2016. Yes, there could be some of that going on, but Mr. Perry also has a succinct reason for speaking out, loudly and often, about the surge of young illegal immigrants: The Lone Star State has already spent a half-billion dollars on the situation. “This is a crisis created by failed federal policy and a lack of will to dedicate the resources necessary to secure the border once and for all,” he says. “This has been a problem for

"I think we are in a dangerous time," Attorney General Eric Holder told ABC News in an interview that aired on Sunday. Holder said he´s worried about the estimated 7,000 Americans and Europeans now fighting in Syria, who will return home, intending to wage terror attacks. "In some ways, it´s more frightening than anything I think I´ve seen as attorney general. You know, 9/11 was something that kind of come out of the blue.

The White House indicated last night that punitive measures are being weighed against Russia for its continuing push into Ukraine. The Obama administration vowed to heap pressure on the Kremlin after its February seizure of the Crimea peninsula, but Russian actions have continued undeterred. President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron spoke by phone Sunday “to discuss the situations in Ukraine, Afghanistan, and Iraq, as well as the status of the P5+1 talks with Iran taking place in Vienna,” according to a readout from the White House. “On Ukraine, the President and Prime Minister expressed concern about the increasing tensions and ongoing

If cutting line at a famous Austin BBQ joint lost Barack Obama a few approval rating points, the conversation he had with the cashier probably cost him even more. When Franklin Barbecue cashier Daniel Rugg Webb saw his chance to speak to the president Thursday, he exclaimed: ´Equal rights for gay people!´ Obama then asked, ´Are you gay.´ ´Only when I´m having sex,´ answered the part-time comedian, which made the president laugh before he realized children were around. ´Not in front of the kids!´ admonished the president, before fist-bumping Webb and parting ways. Webb told Buzzfeed that he was not

Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is set to return to active duty, most likely to a desk job in Fort Sam Houston. Bergdahl will have free reign to leave base without an escort, though winding up in as much trouble in San Antonio as he did when he disappeared from his base in Afghanistan will require a hefty helping of Lone Star. The assignment will be concurrent with the beginning of the Army’s investigation into that disappearance. Bergdahl will be questioned for the first time by military officers over the circumstances of his 2009 capture by the Taliban, which resulted in an

EXCLUSIVE: McALLEN, Texas — Life jackets of all sizes and the occasional punctured raft are strewn along the banks of the Rio Grande, just south of Mission, Texas, where a relentless onslaught of illegal immigrants eagerly surrender to beleaguered Border Patrol agents around the clock. It’s a cycle for which there is no end in sight. “You´re going to be out here a long time,” Fernando, an El Salvadoran child, told FoxNews.com shortly after surrendering to Border Patrol authorities after midnight Saturday. “There are thousands of us."

Rebel Pundit interviewed the community this week about Barack Obama’s open border policies and his spending on the illegal immigrant community. Let’s just say – they are NOT HAPPY. One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists. (Why not forget; the president has.)

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said.

Friday on "Democracy Now," Rep.

The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children. We should be protecting children, not creating fear of them." Yesterday,

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

In remarks framed as a message to the American public, actor Jon Voight emotionally aired his political grievances for several minutes in a televised statement on Saturday. Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on
