Breaking! ObamaCare Just Slammed By D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

BREAKING: Obamacare dealt massive setback by federal appeals court.

By Tom Howell Jr.    The Washington Times Updated: 11:26 a.m. on Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

In a decision that could blow a massive hold in President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, the court held that people living in states that relied on the federal government to set up their insurance market exchanges cannot offer the subsidies considered critical to making coverage affordable.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the administration used an IRS rule to stretch the meaning of the Affordable Care Act, which said financial aid to to low- and middle-income people should only flow to exchanges “established by the State.” If that means only state-run exchanges, it would cut off subsidies to two-thirds of the nation.

The Obama administration is sure to appeal the circuit’s decision in the case, Halbig v. Sebelius, because the subsidies are a huge draw for Obamacare customers. Without that selling point, the reforms would effectively collapse under the weight of premiums that are no longer affordable.

Under the court’s ruling, only the 14 states and the District that have taken on the responsibility for their exchanges would be able to dole out premium tax credits to their resident.

Thomas Jefferson. He Tried To Warn Us.

Too Many to hide from.

Too Many to hide from.

There are two parts. Be
sure to read the 2nd part (in RED).

Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

At 5, began studying under his cousin’s tutor.

At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

At 16, entered the College of William and Mary. Also could write in Greek with one hand while writing the same in Latin with the other.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe.

At 23, started his own law practice.

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.

At 31, wrote the widely circulated “Summary View of the Rights of British America ? And retired from his law practice.

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental
Congress.

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence .

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia ‘s legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry.

At 40, served in Congress for two years.

At 41, was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations along with Ben Franklin and John Adams.

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington.

At 53, served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society.

At 55, drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party.

At 57, was elected the third president of the United States .

At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase doubling the nation’s size.

At 61, was elected to a second term as President.

At 65, retired to Monticello .

At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine.

At 81, almost single-handedly created the
University of Virginia and served as its first president.

At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence along with John Adams.

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

 

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .”
– Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
– Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on
the continent their fathers conquered.”

Boatload of refugees intercepted off Texas coast!

Breaking News!

The U.S. Navy intercepted a boatload of people off the Texas coast today.

This placed the Navy in an awkward position as the boat was not heading to the USA, but towards Mexico and Central America.

Another surprise finding was the refugees are white Americans in their golden years.

boat people

They say they were trying to get to Central America or Southern Mexico as they wanted to return to the U.S. as illegal immigrants. Then they would be entitled to far more benefits than they were receiving as American senior citizens.

It is believed the Navy gave them food, water, fuel and assisted them on their journey.

We are booking the next boat out.

Let me know if you want to join us!

Senate Democrats’ bill will remove all restrictions on abortion – past, present & future

This is why, instead of Democrats, I call them Demonrats.

Various states of our disUnited States of America have been making progress on protecting the lives of the unborn. But if Senate Demonrats have their way, all that progress will be obliterated by one bill.

On Tuesday, July 15, 2014, Senate Demonrats held a hearing on S. 1696, a bill that wipes out virtually every pro-life law across the country, including state laws that came into play in Pennsylvania that held late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell accountable for killing babies who were born alive and killed during a gruesome late-term abortion procedure.

S. 1696 has the deceptive Orwellian title of the “Women’s Health Protection Act” even though it revokes protections for women and their unborn children. Instead, the bill would be far-reaching in how it would topple virtually every pro-life law passed in states across the country.

The bill has been heavily promoted by pro-abortion activist groups since its introduction last November, although it has been largely ignored by the mainstream news media. S. 1696 has 35 Senate cosponsors, all Demonrats, including 9 of the 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. The chief sponsor of the bill is Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Ct.).

Richard Blumenthal

S. 1696 is an updated and expanded version of the old “Freedom of Choice Act” that was championed by Barack Obama when he was a senator. The new bill would invalidate nearly all existing state limitations on abortion, and prohibit states from adopting new limitations in the future, including various types of laws specifically upheld as constitutionally permissible by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Among the laws that the bill would nullify are:

  • Requirements to provide women seeking abortion with specific information on their unborn child and on alternatives to abortion.
  • Laws providing reflection periods (waiting periods).
  • Laws allowing medical professionals to opt out of providing abortions.
  • Laws limiting the performance of abortions to licensed physicians.
  • Bans on elective abortion after 20 weeks.
  • Meaningful limits on abortion after viability.
  • Bans on the use of abortion as a method of sex selection.
  • Invalidate most previously-enacted federal limits on abortion, including federal conscience protection laws and most, if not all, limits on government funding of abortion.

The above laws that would be nullified by the truly diabolical S. 1696 generally have broad public support in the states in which they are enacted, including support from substantial majorities of women.

During the Senate hearing, Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, told lawmakers that the bill is a radical departure from laws that have helped stopped late-term abortions and helped hold abortion practitioners like Gosnell accountable:

“Dr. Kermit Gosnell of Philadelphia is only the most notorious recent example of a certain type of abortion provider who flourishes under the aura of political immunity generated by pro-abortion advocacy groups in some jurisdictions. There are many others who have demonstrated repeatedly that they should not be allowed anywhere near pregnant women or their unborn children, some of whom have been operating in multiple states for many years, shielded from real accountability by the timidity of state officials who are weary of offending the abortion industry and the political activist groups that fly cover for that industry.”

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins says his group opposes the bill for similar reasons:

“Senator Blumenthal’s bill is extreme and out of touch with the views of millions of Americans on both sides of the abortion debate. It is deeply troubling that the Senate Judiciary Committee would consider a measure that puts vulnerable women in greater danger by undermining clinic health standards that are grounded in common sense. The measure even revokes laws requiring abortionists to be licensed physicians and any restrictions on late-term abortions. These laws are vital to avoid a future Kermit Gosnell house of horror. It is my hope that the Senate reject this bill and instead work to protect unborn children that can feel excruciating pain from abortion, and pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1670, sponsored by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).”

ACTION: Contact your senators and urge STRONG opposition to the bill.

Harry Reid Says Our Border Is Secure.

I Think Harry has been smoking good stuff. Nitwit.

————————————————————————————————–

Durbin-Reid-Reuters (1)

Durbin-Reid-Reuters 

As tens of thousands of illegal aliens stream across our southern border, completely overwhelming border patrol and generating a humanitarian crisis, Nevada Senator and Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid has a message for the nation: our border is completely secure.

 15 Jul 2014

Reid appeared at the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch and told reporters, “The border is secure. [Sen.] Martin Heinrich talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”

Senator Reid also claimed that there is no need to make any changes on how quickly illegals are deported. The Senator claimed that there is enough “leeway” in current laws to give the executive branch the tools to do what needs to be done.

Reid also dismissed a bipartisan bill proposed by Senate Republican John Cornyn and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, both from Texas, as “too broad.”

“From all the reports I’ve gotten, the answer for me is no, I won’t support it,” Reid claimed.

The Nevadan called the humanitarian crisis on the border a “narrow issue” and insisted that Obama’s request for 3.7 billion additional dollars for the border is the fix that Congress should be concerning itself with.

Reid isn’t the only Democrat to indulge this head-in-the-sand political position. Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee was also heard saying that the border is “under control”despite the truth staring her in face.

Meanwhile, on this border that is perfectly secure, an illegal alien that was deported four other times after being convicted of the sexual assault of a 9-year-old girl was caught once again sneaking across the border.

Leaked intelligence for this border crisis also speaks directly against some of these Democrats’ claims that the reason for this wave of illegals is merely a rising rate of violence in Central America.

Wayne Allyn Root on the Murder of the Middle Class

What is the Murder of the Middle Class?
By Wayne Allyn Root

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” launches today Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed, plundered and looted by the premeditated “Murder of the Middle Class.” This is no accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the boldest, grandest criminal conspiracy in world history.

Although the man at the center of this massive world-class fraud is Barack Obama, there are many moving parts and co-conspirators. These include famous billionaire businessmen, corporate CEOs, the Federal Reserve, Wall Street bankers, central bankers, government employee unions, the IRS, EPA, NSA, the Bar Association, assorted communists and America-haters, and even some well-known D.C. establishment Republicans. It’s quite a shocking list of conspirators.

Lies and fraud are at the center of this “murder of the middle class.” President Obama and various big government politicians need to distract the middle class from their real agenda. Lies are their WMD- weapon of mass distraction.

So they claim Obamacare is about “saving the sick and uninsured”…when the real objective is income redistribution (through higher taxes and higher premiums) to make the middle class poor and dependent on government.

They claim environmental regulations and green energy will save us from global warming…when the real objective is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills, gas bills and grocery bills.

They claim immigration reform is about “protecting innocent children”…when the real objective is to create 12 million new low-wage employees in the labor force…depress middle class wages for generations to come…create 12 million future Democratic voters…and assign all of them lawyers at the expense of middle class taxpayers, to enrich the Bar Association, the biggest donor to the Democrat Party.

They claim higher taxes are to “create equality”… when the real objective is income redistribution and starving the biggest donors to conservative causes and candidates- small business and the middle class.

They claim higher education spending is “for the kids,” …when the real objective is enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions back to Democrat politicians.

They claim bailing out GM was to “save jobs”…when the real goal was saving bloated pensions for auto union members, whose unions kicked back hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians.

The Fed claims quantitative easing is “to save the economy”…when the real goal was making crony capitalist Warren Buffett $12.7 billion richer last year, while the children and unborn grandchildren of middle class taxpayers owe back $17 trillion in debt used to fund a fixed craps game on Wall Street.

It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class; redistributing wealth; making it impossible for small business to compete with big business; rewarding lobbyists, lawyers and crony capitalists; keeping politicians in office for life; and putting big government in control of our every move.

But the biggest lie of all is when politicians like Obama claim, “It’s all okay. Things are getting better. We’re in a recovery. Look away, there’s nothing to see here.”

It’s not okay. This author was just notified by his health insurance company that my family’s policy has been cancelled. When Obama was elected my bill was $500 per month. Today it’s $1700 per month. But now my family will have no insurance at all, because of Obamacare. Tens of millions of middle class Americans will soon receive the same notice. This is no mistake. This was premeditated fraud upon the middle class.

My grocery bills have skyrocketed. How about yours? My electric bills are at all-time highs. Gas prices have doubled since Obama became president. How can middle class people survive, without becoming dependent on government? Ah, that’s the point.

All this while the economy is in crisis and collapse. The GDP for the first quarter was NEGATIVE 2.9%, one of the worst showings in history, six years after Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus promised to “save” the economy. That stimulus went to Obama’s voters (the poor) and Obama’s donors (the super rich). But the bill (in the form of debt) goes to the middle class for decades to come.

No, things are not alright. Here are just a few of the facts from my new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class:”

China is set to pass America as the world’s #1 economy based on consumer spending. THIS YEAR. It will be the first time since 1872 that America has not been the #1 economy in the world.

There is no doubt the great American middle class is being murdered. I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class” to give all Americans the information, tools and courage to save the middle class and the American Dream. This fight is just getting started. Get informed and join the battle. God Bless America.

Obama spends $50 million for luxury resort hotel to house illegal “children”

If you’re upset about busloads of illegals getting a free shopping spree at a Walmart in North Carolina, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Hold onto your hat.

President Lucifer has awarded a $50 million contract to Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) to buy a luxury resort and transform it into a 600-bed facility for “juvenile” illegal aliens.

BCFS is the same “charity group” that was hired to provide “brown shirts” security for a camp for illegals in Texas who allegedly threatened health workers in the camp not to divulge to the American public the many contagious diseases the illegals are bringing into the U.S.

The resort is the Palm Aire resort and hotel in Weslaco, Texas, a few miles north of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo County.

Palm Aire1

Kristinn Taylor reports for Gateway Pundit, July 16, 2014, that Palm Aire has an indoor Olympic sized pool, an outdoor pool, Jacuzzis, sauna, steam room, two racquetball courts, outdoor tennis courts, picnic area with grills, a fitness center with 20 machines and free weights, as well as free Wi-Fi and cable TV in all the guest rooms.

Palm Aire2Palm Aire3The resort hotel for illegal alien children is reportedly the first in the nation.

The plan is to have the hotel ready for illegal alien children ages 12 to 17 by October 1st of this year, a mere two-and-half months from now. It is expected the average stay will be about 15 days.

BCFS plans to employ 650 people at the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites, which would mean slightly over one worker per illegal alien child. According to the BCSF Website, the charity’s jobs pay from $10 to $45 per hour.

KRGV-TV quoted a BCFS spokeswoman about the purpose of buying the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites:

“It’s going to be an intake facility, which serves as a lot like a hospital emergency room,” Krista Piferrer, BCFS VP External Affairs said.

“”We’ve all seen the photos and the videos of children in crowded Border Patrol facilities. What this site is going to allow to happen is quickly move those children out of Border Patrol cells and triage them,” Piferrer said.”

BCFS plans for the facility to be “completely self-contained” with Piferrer telling KRGV-TV, ‘medical staff will be on hand so children with diseases or injuries will not be transferred to local hospitals.’

Piferrer told the Valley Morning Star the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites facility would provide “medical and mental health care, on-site educational programs, recreational programs and case management.”

According to a Hidalgo County commissioner, the BCFS contract for the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is an annual one worth $50 million per year. It is not part of the $3.7 billion emergency funding for the illegal alien invasion requested by the POS as Congress hasn’t passed the bill.

The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is set to be sold to Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) operating under a federal contract, pending local government approval.

UPDATE:

Reaction to this story was swift. On the day this disgusting deal was reported, with a link on the powerful Drudge Report, there was such a popular uproar that Baptist Child & Family Services withdrew its bid for the Palm Aire Resort. Read more here. (H/t FOTM’s miche and TPR)

This doesn’t mean the POS won’t pull another stunt. We need to fix our steely eyes on this Man of Sin occupying the White House.

Busloads of ADULT illegals shop in Walmart with food stamps

Illegals at NC Walmart

Sean Brown writes for Mad World, July 14, 2014:

If we were to listen only to the mainstream media and the talking points from the White House, they would have us believe that not only is the government doing everything possible in order to stop the invasion of our Southern border, but those who are crossing are refugee children who can’t be turned away. However, a video that was recorded on Sunday by a North Carolina woman places serious doubts on whether or not either of those things are true, as it allegedly shows busloads of adult illegal immigrants getting dropped off at a local Walmart to shop for supplies for their shelter.

Sylvia Locklear was on her lunch break Sunday afternoon around 1:30 p.m. when she noticed something strange happening in the parking lot of Walmart in Concord, NC – there was busloads of what appeared to be adult illegal immigrants being dropped off to shop for everything from food to pillows and blankets. Angered by her discovery, Sylvia decided she was going to investigate a little further, and what she found should outrage every American citizen.

In the video above, Sylvia can be heard talking to another person who presumably was curious about what was going on, so she explained to them that prior to taking the video she had tried to talk to the people on the bus. Not only could they barely speak English, but one of them had said they had just arrived in America.

We all know that this has been happening, however, the sheriff of her town had said that they weren’t allowing any illegals to be shipped in, so it would appear as if the Obama regime is once again placing undue burdens on the states and not even letting them know what’s going on. What’s worse is that in the comments under the video she posted to Facebook, Sylvia said that when she was in line behind them that they were using government-issued EBT cards to pay for their purchases.

The Kannapolis Police Department wouldn’t comment on the video when I reached out to them, and the sheriff couldn’t be reached for comment. However, there’s been many reports of illegals being shipped to towns without the knowledge of town officials as Judge Jeanine points out below.

How come you and I not only pay for our purchases at Wal-mart, but those of people who violate our borders and our laws?

California to have state-wide mandatory water restrictions Aug. 1

Folsom Lake reservoirFolsom Lake is a reservoir in Northern California

Yesterday, July 15, 2014, California’s State Water Resources Control Board voted to impose mandatory statewide water-use restrictions for the first time in state history, effective August 1.

Fines of up to $500 a day will be imposed on businesses and individuals for wasting water on landscaping, washing cars without a shut-off nozzle or other outdoor uses.

The new restrictions are prompted by California’s 3-year drought and by the results of a water-use survey showing that overall consumption in California actually increased 1% in 2014, despite pleas from Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown for residents and businesses to voluntarily cut back use by 20%. The increased usage is attributable to two regions of the state: Southern California coastal communities (Hollywood!) and the far northeastern slice of the state.

While no region of California met Brown’s request for a 20% reduction, some came closer than others:

  • Communities that draw from the Sacramento River reduced consumption the most, by 13%.
  • The North Coast reduced consumption by 12%.
  • San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California cities that draw from the Colorado River decreased water use by 5%.

Cities and suburbs use about 20% of the state’s water, with about half going outdoors. Agriculture is by far the greatest water user, accounting for 75% of consumption in the state.

The sweeping list of mandates from the state includes:

  • A ban on watering down sidewalks and driveways — except for sanitation purposes, e.g., allowing cities to power-wash alleyways to get rid of human waste left by homeless people, to scrub away graffiti, and to remove oil and grease from parking structure floors.
  • No more washing a vehicle or boat without a shut-off nozzle on the hose.
  • Fountains must use recycled water.
  • No watering so much as to cause runoff.

Fines of up to $500 for individuals and $10,000 for water districts could be issued for non-compliance.

It will be up to local governments and water districts to decide how to implement the mandates. The full $500-a-day fine, considered an infraction, could be reserved for repeat violators, for example. Others might receive warnings or smaller fines based on a sliding scale.

State Water Board Chair Felicia Marcus said, “The state cannot be in a situation where this goes two, three, four years and we’re dealing with massive numbers of cities running out of water. Our intention is that it would be enforceable at the local level by any enforcement capability local agencies currently have. We are trying not to reinvent any wheel.”

If fines fail to promote conservation, Marcus said the board would consider other steps such as requiring water districts to stop leaks in their pipes, which account for an estimated 10% of water use, stricter landscape restrictions and encouraging water agencies to boost rates for consumers who use more than their share of water.

Sources: CBS San Francisco; AP

And yet California is adding to the state population by receiving untold numbers from the “surge” of illegals crossing the US-Mexico border.

And yet, despite the ever-increasing population and therefore water users, the state government is doing NOTHING to increase water supply by building more reservoirs and dams because of opposition from environmentalists green Nazis.
