Really, really unfortunate to find the Free Beacon exploiting an insane derelict for easy page views. It’s one thing to giggle at the crazy man at the bus stop, it’s another to record him and put it on YouTube. Nor is this the first time they’ve had fun at the expense of someone with obvious brain damage. Just look what they did to poor Al Sharpton. You’ll be tempted to bail here after 10 seconds thinking you’ve got the point and thus there’s no need to watch it all. Wrong: The point is to watch it all, to absorb the extent

Federal funds earmarked to offset
Affordable Care Act insurer losses
Los Angeles Times, by Noam N. Levy    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/21/2014 10:45:56 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration has quietly adjusted key provisions of its signature healthcare law to potentially make billions of additional taxpayer dollars available to the insurance industry if companies providing coverage through the Affordable Care Act lose money. The move was buried in hundreds of pages of new regulations issued late last week. It comes as part of an intensive administration effort to hold down premium increases for next year, a top priority for the White House as the rates will be announced ahead of this fall´s congressional elections. Administration officials for months have denied charges by opponents that they plan a "bailout"

An employee of the Democratic Party of Oregon was the first person to request the April 2013 police report of timber baron Andrew Miller accusing Republican Senate candidate Monica Wehby of "stalking" him after a break-up. Jon Friedman, who listed a Northeast Portland address, requested the report from Portland police on April 17, 2014, documents obtained by The Oregonian through a public records request show. Friedman did not immediately return a message seeking comment Monday. Friedman works as a research assistant for the Democratic Party of Oregon, said Jamal Raad, party spokesman. Raad declined to comment further. Raad previously worked as a spokesman

President Obama will break his silence on the Veterans Affairs scandal, planning to make a public statement at the White House on Wednesday morning after meeting with embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. Obama plans to speak at 10:45 a.m. ET from the briefing room. The president has faced criticism for staying silent as allegations mounted that veterans died while waiting for care, and VA workers misrepresented treatment information -- and for rebuffing calls for the secretary to resign. But the controversy is expanding, and there were a string of meetings planned for Wednesday morning. Obama was meeting with Shinseki

Howard Dean: ´Republicans Aren´t American"

A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the party’s leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring “Nice doggie. Nice doggie.” Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans aren’t American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats

The federal criminal investigation of Oregon´s health insurance exchange took a step into public view Tuesday when the U.S. Attorney´s office issued broad subpoenas seeking information from Cover Oregon and the Oregon Health Authority. While the Federal Bureau of Investigation´s interest in the exchange debacle had been previously reported, the legal demands dated May 13 indicate things may have moved beyond a preliminary inquiry to a full-blown investigation. The investigation, led by federal prosecutors and the FBI, is seeking documents, memos, and emails between the two state entities that oversaw the botched health exchange with U.S. authorities in charge of dispensing federal

   

 

  


 
We are all veterans now

The national scandal and disgrace at the VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) is the perfect example of the disaster that awaits America with ObamaCare. We´re about to find out what it´s like to receive health care from the government. The VA scandal is proof that with government in charge of health care, it will bankrupt the entire country. Countless Americans will die through bureaucratic incompetence, neglect, long waiting lists and fraud. Just like what our veterans have already experienced. Sadly, the VA scandal is nothing new. Conservatives have warned about the dangers of government-run health care for many years, often

Stream of al Qaeda threats has

A series of al Qaeda-based threats to attack American and Western targets in Europe, as well as threats to launch attacks inside the United States, has caused significant concern inside the U.S. intelligence community, CNN has learned. Officials are trying to determine the extent to which the threats may be linked and determine what it may mean about the strength of al Qaeda in several countries. While the "threat stream" has evolved during the past six months, according to a senior U.S. official, none of the threats has been corroborated. The official said the threats appear to detail "a lot of activity

Analysis: GOP Avoids Past
Mistakes In Senate Picks

WASHINGTON -- Tuesday´s elections are the best evidence yet that Republicans are avoiding previous mistakes and improving their chances of controlling the Senate during President Barack Obama´s final two years in office. GOP voters again chose solidly conservative nominees while rejecting the most extreme and outlandish types who led the party to painful losses in 2010 and 2012. The simple way to view this year´s results, thus far, is to say "establishment" Republicans are outperforming tea party insurgents. That´s largely true. But it blurs the extent to which nearly all Republican candidates - including some who have been in Congress for decades

FBI’s Huge Hacker Bust Could Be Bogus

Dozens have been arrested in a king-sized global hacker crackdown. But it’s unclear whether the charges against these supposed cyber criminals will actually stick. In one of the largest coordinated crackdowns in the history of hacking and law enforcement, hundreds of people have been raided, questioned, or arrested for being connected with a commercially available program that sells for as little as $40 on the open market. It’s called Blackshades, and it’s a remote access tool, or RAT as it is known in the computer industry. Europol claimed 359 raids connected to the Blackshades investigation, with the FBI confirming 97 arrests in

A Republican lawmaker is raising concerns over the fact that Democrats are planning to host the premiere of an anti-Koch brothers documentary in a taxpayer-funded room in the Capitol on Tuesday. House Administration Committee Chairwoman Candice Miller, R-Mich., wrote to House Minority Leader Pelosi, D-Calif., to inform her showing the film in a room of the Capitol Visitor’s Center constitutes a political event on congressional property, which is forbidden. The event was described in a press release as a “special screening” of the film, which will examine the Koch brothers’ “ability to buy our democracy.” Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.,

Tripoli, Libya -- The U.S. military has doubled the number of aircraft standing by in Italy if needed to evacuate Americans from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, CNN has learned. A decision to evacuate as violence in the Libyan capital grows is "minute by minute, hour by hour," a defense official told CNN on Monday. Fierce fighting swept across the city Sunday after armed men stormed the country´s interim Parliament. Sporadic bursts of gunfire and blasts could still be heard on the outskirts of the capital Monday evening. The violence appeared to be some of the worst since the

President Obama declared his outrage at allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals at a Wednesday press conference after an Oval Office meeting with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. "I will not stand for it — not as commander in chief, but also not as an American,” he told reporters as furor grows over allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at the health care facilities. The VA Inspector General’s office said late Tuesday that 26 facilities are being investigated nationwide — up from 10 just last week — including a Phoenix hospital where 40 veterans allegedly died while waiting for treatment and

Karl Rove created a stir with his recent suggestion that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton may have suffered traumatic brain injury in December 2012. Speaking at a conference in California, he noted, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” Let’s ignore the media hyperventilating and look at what Rove actually suggested. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, traumatic brain injury, or TBI, “occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.” Secretary Clinton reportedly

Republicans’ hopes of winning back the Senate received a big boost in primary elections Tuesday, with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) easily winning and other candidates favored by the party establishment beating back tea party challengers. After years of intraparty turmoil that cost Republicans key races, voters this year are coalescing around the GOP’s strongest candidates ahead of November’s general election, when control of the Senate during President Obama’s final two years in office will be up for grabs. On Tuesday, the most consequential day of voting so far this year, Democrats were left disappointed. GOP Senate candidates prone to

Fox News’ Bob Beckel suggested Monday that Condoleezza Rice, the first female and first black secretary of state, is not a good icon for young black people because she didn’t grow up in the “ghetto.” Panelists on “The Five” discussed race relations in today’s America by contrasting an uplifting speech given by Ms. Rice at the 2012 Republican National Convention and Attorney General Eric Holder’s more dismal outlook in his commencement speech at Morgan State University on Saturday.

Time after time, President Obama has reportedly learned of a number of big administration scandals in the media, from the IRS to Fast & Furious and now the VA scandal over wait times and veterans dying before receiving proper treatment (Jay Carney said today the president learned about this scandal through media reports). All this apparent unawareness before the fact led Charles Krauthammer to argue on Special Report today that Obama acts like he “stumbled upon the presidency” only to be shocked by how much wrong there really is. He lightly mocked the idea that Obama is “madder than hell”

In 2014, the tea party insurrection is starting to look more like the Boston Massacre.In state after state this primary season, entrenched politicians are proving that incumbency counts for something after all, leveraging the stature and financial firepower that comes with high office to demolish challengers from the activist right.In three states Tuesday night, long-serving lawmakers rolled over tea party opponents. Eight-term Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson beat back a challenger supported by Club for Growth, the most influential conservative group targeting elected officials in primaries. In Pennsylvania, Rep.

Capital New York reports that Zucker explained CNN’s post-plane plans during an interview at the Deadline Club’s annual dinner on Monday night. “I don’t think there’s any question about our commitment to breaking news, as evidenced by all the questions about the plane,” Zucker told The New York Times’ Bill Carter. “So we’re still there whenever that happens,” he continued, “but we’re going to supplement that with some different kind of storytelling.” What kind of

With the latest Benghazi! ™ extravaganza about to begin, the Democrats are faced with a dilemma. Should they boycott the silly hearings, thus leaving the Republicans to put on their pageant unimpeded, or should they join in with a full panel and add legitimacy to the process? The problem seems to be that whether they like it or not, these hearings are going to be covered. And if the press reaction so far tells us anything, they are looking for a show. This is why they should follow the advice of Ari Rabin-Havt in the American Prospect who says that

Now that San Diego’s wildfires have been contained and are cooling, according to the Los Angeles Times, Governor Jerry Brown announced on Sunday that California’s real battle is with global warming. Appearing on an ABC Sunday morning show, Brown asserted that "We here in California are on the front lines." Brown reasserted that rising sea levels may precipitate the relocation of Los Angeles International airport (LAX). "We´ve got to deal with it. We´ve already appropriated $600 million.

Answer: 4, all of the above.Those are the most obvious explanations for why the White House thought it could get away with claiming that the departure of Veterans Affairs official Dr. Robert Petzel was a step toward accountability for its scandalous treatment of war veterans.Fact is, the department announced in 2013 that Petzel would retire this year."Well, Secretary Shinseki accepted Dr. Petzel´s resignation this afternoon.
