Why Obamacare As We
Know It May Not Survive

Fiscal Times, by Eric Pianin

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/11/2014 8:05:09 AM

Obamacare could take another spin in front of the Supreme Court – with vastly uncertain consequences. Harvard legal scholar Laurence H. Tribe warned Tuesday of a “very high risk” that a crucial aspect of Obamacare – its government subsidies provision – could fall victim to a major legal challenge being mounted by conservatives. That is why, he also said, that the Supreme Court will almost certainly get “a second bite of the apple” in determining the fate of President Obama’s signature health law, with uncertain consequences.

May God grant John Roberts the wisdom to see things clearly and do the right thing.

Obamacare is like a bunch of unrelated computer programs that have been merged together and submitted to run on a broken computer.

If the computer reacts at all, it will either give you a blue screen or display something like "Unpredictable Results."

Obamacare is already dead, they just refuse to bury the corpse.

"...challenge being mounted by conservatives...". Why not ´ a challenge being mounted by concerned citizens who have objected to the government take over of one sixth of the economy by people who have only made matters worse and are trying to protect themselves and future generations from this Obamanation"? You know, ´conservatives´.

Socialists believe everything must be compulsory and comprehensive, not accepting that people will ignore compulsion, and comprehensive does not satisfy the demands of any one person.

"As long as the State triggers it..." are weasel word and Tripe (did I misspell that? Oh well..) should know better. The full bench of the Circuit Court will rule for the plaintiffs but give the government relief under Stare Decisis or some such, leaving the monkey on the backs of Congress. IMO CJ Roberts will decline to rule letting it stand.

U.S. relies on Persian Gulf
bases for airstrikes in Iraq
Washington Post, by Craig Whitlock    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/26/2014 9:07:01 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. military is relying on bases in the Persian Gulf and elsewhere in the Middle East to carry out airstrikes in Iraq, but is masking the locations and other details about the units and aircraft involved to avoid embarrassing partners in the region. The Persian Gulf monarchies have long hosted U.S. forces to bolster their own security. But most have shied away from acknowledging the American presence and are even more reluctant now with U.S. warplanes bombing Iraq. The arrangement is especially delicate given long-standing accusations from Washington that wealthy donors in the Gulf underwrite terrorist groups, including Islamic militants being

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

I thought you might want to see this debate about Ferguson between the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Dr. Ben Carson, who may decide to run for president. They appeared together yesterday on Fox News Sunday. You can see from this conversation why Carson would be such a compelling candidate. And oh, how nice it would be if African Americans would listen to him instead of people like Jackson and Al Sharptongue. Carson’s message, at its core, and less politely put by me, is that while yes, there is still some racism and racial profiling out there, the overwhelmingly effective thing young black

A New York Times piece on Michael Brown’s final weeks before he was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is getting flack on Twitter for its characterization of Brown as “no angel” due to his recent “dabbling” in rap lyrics and at least one “scuffle”: Critics were quick to point out that past drug use and lyrics about the same were hardly enough to indict white figures, though we all hold our breath for David Allen Coe‘s obit:

Islamic State militants
capture key Syrian air base*

Islamic State militants have seized a major Syrian air base, wiping out the last government stronghold in a province dominated by jihadists. The extremists won a week-long battle today to capture the sprawling Tabqa base 25 miles from their stronghold in Raqqa, reportedly killing dozens of soldiers in the process. The base was reportedly one of the military´s largest facilities in the region, with several warplane squadrons, helicopters, tanks, artillery and ammunition.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Rahm Emanuel: Chicago not murder capital

Rahm Emanuel is pushing back against suggestions that violence in his city is out of control, touting new statistics that show violent crime is down in Chicago “The narrative is: We’re the murder capital. Not close,” the Chicago mayor said during an interview with POLITICO. When asked about perception of crime in Chicago, Emanuel was quick to note that he is most concerned with the opinions of his city’s residents about the safety of their communities. But the mayor still seems frustrated with the media, which he feels is focusing on individual incidents of crime without telling the whole story. Read more:

The column of the humanitarian convoy from Russia started moving towards Luhansk on Friday, Aug 22. The decision to move the convoy was made at the Russian Foreign Ministry. However, representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said earlier that the trucks could not drive into the territory of Ukraine due to the absence of security guarantees from the Ukrainian authorities. The website of the Russian foreign political department posted a message about Moscow´s decision to send the convoy through Ukraine without guarantees from Kiev. Russian President Vladimir Putin is aware of the decision related to the humanitarian

Obama’s remarks on Ferguson are
tone deaf and disappointing
Washington Post, by Michael Eric Dyson    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/22/2014 10:48:46 AM     Post Reply
If President Obama’s comments on race in the anguished aftermath of the not-guilty verdict in George Zimmerman’s trial gleamed in light, his words on the rage that has thumped Ferguson, Mo., were shrouded in darkness. They revealed a gifted leader whose palpable discomfort with race has made him a sometimes unreliable and distant narrator of black life. When Obama gave his fullest statement yet on the cataclysm in Ferguson, he was cautious to a fault. The president understandably didn’t want to fan the violence. He had also learned his lesson after he lamented the stupidity of the police officer who arrested

The Wane of Government by Consent

The mathematics of civil disobedience has always been pretty straightforward: As Mohandas Gandhi pointed out to the raj, 100,000 government officials cannot control 350 million citizens if the citizens do not cooperate. There are not enough police in St. Louis County to control the people who do not wish to be controlled by the police in St. Louis County, as least as currently constituted. There are two ways to govern: By consent or by terror. In the United States, we govern by consent. (Mostly.) We spend altogether too much time talking about sentiment, e.g., polling Americans about whether they feel that the

A Hamas official has said for the first time that members of the Palestinian Islamist group were responsible for the abduction of three Israeli teenagers whose murders ignited the current conflict with Israel. Sheikh Saleh al-Aruri, who is exiled in Turkey, told a conference of Islamic scholars in Istanbul that Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel, both aged 16, and Eyal Yifrach, 19, had been seized by the Izzedine al-Qassam brigades, Hamas´ military wing. Mr al-Aruri said the "kidnapping to Hebron of the three settlers" - which he called a "blessed heroic action" - was carried out in support of Palestinian prisoners staging fasting

Before they cut off his head, they treated him like a whipping boy. James Foley — brave until the end — was subjected to beatings and psychological torture with mock executions before he was butchered by his Islamic State captors, it was revealed Thursday. “This group, which has a taste for the macabre, made him stand against a wall in a pose as if he had been crucified,” Didier Francois, a French reporter who had also been held by ISIS, told radio station Europe1. A week before the Islamic fanatics released their barbaric video of Foley’s execution, they sent his family in New

According to a new Sunday Times report by Toby Harden, "Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorise the mission." It´s claimed that Obama was concerned about his administration being Carterized had the mission failed. For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass. On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations. “First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

Ogletree, a renowned legal scholar who taught President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama during their time in Cambridge, described the state of affairs following Brown’s funeral as being “just like the assassination of” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. “This reminds us of exactly what happened years ago when I was a young kid to the great man Emmett Till,

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart!

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is
