IRS: Employers Face $36,500 Per
Worker Tax for ´Obamacare Dumping´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/27/2014 1:32:17 AM

The Internal Revenue Service ruled it will impose a tax penalty on employers of up to $36,500 per worker for dumping employees into the Obamacare exchanges. The New York Times, which broke the story, reports: When employers provide coverage, their contributions, averaging more than $5,000 a year per employee, are not counted as taxable income to workers. But the Internal Revenue Service said employers could not meet their obligations under the health care law by simply reimbursing employees for some or all of their premium costs. The IRS ruling is an effort by the Obama administration to stop employers with 50 or

Comments:
Who´s in charge of changing 0bamacare and can it be done without Congress? When will we become "mad as hell and not going to take it anymore?" Simply put, 0bama´s minions (White House) keep moving the goalposts to punish US and our economy.

Just because he has a phone and a pen, Obama cannot legally change a law just because he says so.

Obama and his renegades are driving steamrollers over the job creators, the working tax payers and Veterans.
Rolling Thunder should have driven right through the front door of the White House, and out the back door.

Too bad Congress cannot explain to the Executive Branch that laws are written by the Congress. Regulations are to be application of law, not what the Executive Branch desires. IRS has no authority to make laws.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said there are a number of “qualified women” who could run for president in 2016 but added that, whoever runs, they need to understand that politics in America is “probably the most difficult, even brutal, in the world.” On CBS Sunday Morning, guest host Jane Pauley displayed a long list of countries that have (or had) female leaders, (Snip) Clinton then continued, “But politics is so unpredictable, whoever runs has to recognize that the American political system is probably the most difficult, even brutal, in the world.” According to The Daily Caller, Clinton’s comment about “brutal” politics in America

Amid Border Crisis, White House

The White House will be welcoming undocumented immigrants shielded from deportation by the president’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program Tuesday even as the policy has precipitated a crisis on the southern border as tens of thousands of children stream across with hopes of amnesty. (Snip) The event comes as unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors, many from Central America, are coming across the border in droves amid violence and poverty in their home counties as well as rumors that they will be given a free pass into America. Some lawmakers have pointed to DACA as part of the fuel for the current

Washington - Reflecting rapidly changing events on the ground in the Middle East, the United States is readying a new, direct channel with Iran that will allow the two powers to coordinate strategy against the menace of ISIS, a terrorist militia conquering territory throughout eastern Syria and northern Iraq. The Obama administration is already preparing a channel separate from its efforts to forge a comprehensive agreement with Iran over its nuclear program, (Snip) "Whatever dialogue may or may not be taking place [with Iran] would take place on the sideline or outside the mainstream of the nuclear talks" in Vienna, US Secretary of State

Black flags over American tanks, Iraqi heads on public display and women threatened with death should they leave their homes – this is the new caliphate pseudo-state of ISIS, perhaps short-lived, but, while breathing, the worst of all case scenarios for anyone invested in the Middle East. (Snip) We know that ISIS’s current campaign, dubbed Operation Soldier’s Harvest, began in October 2013 with the explicit aim of cementing control of territory for the formation of a caliphate, erasing borders imposed by a colonial West and reimposing strict Shari’a law. With Ramadan approaching on June 28, we can expect ISIS will attempt a

At Commencement, Obama Mocks
Lawmakers Who Deny Climate Change
New York Times, by Mark Landler    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/14/2014 10:22:31 PM     Post Reply
Anaheim, CA - President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an uncomfortable truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to

Thousands of Shiite Muslims across Iraq took up arms Saturday and joined security forces in the fight against Al Qaeda-inspired militants who have invaded and taken over huge chunks of territory north of Baghdad. The Al Qaeda splinter group, known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), has been on the move, conducting an offensive in the western region of the country and now threaten stability in the nation’s capital. (Snip) The massive response to the call by the Iranian-born Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, issued via his representative Friday, comes as sectarian tensions are threatening to push the country back toward civil war

President Barack Obama on Saturday intervened in a commuter rail strike in the nation´s sixth-largest metropolitan area, granting Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett´s request to create a presidential emergency board to mediate the contract dispute between the Southeast Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and its engineers and electricians unions. Obama ordered the establishment of the three-member board effective at 12:01 a.m. Sunday. He called for "a swift and smooth resolution" of the dispute. Workers will have to return to the job when the board goes into effect after midnight, however SEPTA said it would take eight to 10 hours

A cheerleader for the Russian Revolution in the early 20th century and a leader in the labor movement during the Depression; hounded during the McCarthy era and orphaned after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Communist Party USA on Friday returned to Chicago, the city of its birth. Given the movement´s history, some might wonder why anyone would want to be a communist. But the more than 300 adherents who came to celebrate the party´s 95th anniversary at the University of Illinois at Chicago see it the other way around: Who wouldn´t want to be a member? Among them was Susan Gosman, who on the opening day of the

United Nations - The Taliban´s reliance on extortion and kidnappings, along with narcotics and illegal mining operations, is transforming it from a group driven by religious ideology into a criminal enterprise hungry for profit, U.N. sanctions monitors said in a new report. (Snip) "In addition to voluntary or forced donations from Afghan businesses outside the country as well as voluntary donations motivated by religious or ideological convictions, the Taliban have established a fairly sophisticated system to generate resources inside the country," the report said.

Washington - Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday the deteriorating conditions in Iraq could have "global consequences." (Snip) "That´s a delicate and difficult task for our government because we certainly don´t want to fight their fight," Clinton said. "Because you´d be fighting for a dysfunctional, unrepresentative, authoritarian government and there´s no reason on earth that I know of that we would ever sacrifice a single American life for that." The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said the turmoil in Iraq represented a "recipe for a horrendous conflict."

In an email this evening, a veteran publishing source calls the latest Hillary Clinton book, Hard Choices, a memoir of her State Department years, a "bomb." The source is referring to the early but underwhelming sales figures. "Between us, they are nervous at S&S [Simon & Schuster]," says the source, who gave permission for his email to be published. "Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster." According to this source, a Simon & Schuster insider, "They sold 60,000 hard covers first week and 24,000 ebooks." The publishing house was "hoping and praying for 150,000 print first week."

At any other time, the growing crisis on the Mexican border, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied young people crossing illegally into the United States, might dominate the news. Yet the situation has received less attention than it might amid the furor over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s primary defeat, the collapse of Iraq, the continuing Bergdahl matter, and Hillary Clinton´s book tour. They´re all genuinely important news stories, and they´ve crowded out disaster at the border. But whether or not many people noticed, this was the week in which the Obama administration´s attempts to deflect blame for the border

Wikipedia has an article describing the six times Republican politicians suggested impeaching Barack Obama, the most serious of which was a hearing by the House Judiciary Committee “formally titled ‘The President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,’ that has been viewed as an attempt to begin justifying impeachment proceedings”. (Snip) The problem with the “Obama is unimpeachable” argument is that he has already been impeached as Leader of the Free World. Any observer of Obama’s collapse will have noted his marginalization in international councils. Britain flatly refused to go along with him in enforcing a Red Line in Syria.

Bill Clinton is by far the most admired president of the past quarter century, a new poll shows, underscoring how much he has done to burnish his profile since leaving the White House in 2000. Asked which president of the past 25 years they admired most, some 42% of respondents named Mr. Clinton in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg Survey. That was more than twice the share that named any other president. The other three presidents of the quarter century all polled about the same: 18% said they most admired President Barack Obama; 17% named George W. Bush; and 16%

President Obama announced Monday night, in a letter to Congress, that 275 U.S. troops will deploy to Iraq to provide security for American personnel in the country currently in chaos. In the letter, the president called for Congressional authorization for this action. And this was the statement released by the Press Secretary’s office. Today, consistent with the War Powers Resolution, the President transmitted a report notifying the Congress that up to approximately 275 U.S. military personnel are deploying to Iraq to provide support and security for U.S. personnel and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. The personnel will provide assistance to

Hardly anyone accepts the IRS’ claim to have lost two years of Lois Lerner’s emails. Those most familiar with government record retention requirements, and the technology used, probably are the most skeptical. The supposedly lost emails cover January 2009 to April 2011, the period when Lerner is suspected of targeting conservative groups with heightened and invasive scrutiny. Those emails also pertain to communications Lerner may have had with agencies other than the Internal Revenue Service. That’s key, because many suspect that the Obama White House knew about, and may have coordinated, the targeting.

Highly organized and bloodthirsty, the radical Islamist army called ISIS took but a few days to subjugate the cities of northern Iraq as it dreams of taking over the entire country — while President Obama played it cynically cool. The group’s stunning, barbaric march prompted the President on Friday to offer to review a range of options because America has “a stake in making sure that these jihadists are not getting a permanent foothold in either Iraq or Syria.” Returned now to the White House from a long-weekend family vacation in California, the President must face the awful reality that he dodged
