Four words that could

USA Today, by Richard Wolf    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The most serious challenge to President Obama´s health care law since it survived the Supreme Court by a single vote in 2012 isn´t a balky website, public opinion or the Republican takeover of Congress. It´s the Supreme Court — again. In a case likely to be heard in March and decided in June, the justices will dissect the meaning of four words on page 95 of the 906-page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — four words that could render health insurance premiums unaffordable for millions of Americans. Here´s a look at the issues in King v. Burwell:

Kasich’s immigration views ‘evolved’
Columbus Dispatch [OH], by Darrel Rowland    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 11/22/2014 7:40:48 PM     Post Reply
BOCA RATON, Fla. — A little more than four years ago, John Kasich told The Dispatch, “One thing that I don’t want to reward is illegal immigration.” He called for a comprehensive federal immigration law protecting America’s borders. And he reiterated his longtime support for amending the U.S. Constitution to end birthright citizenship for children born here to illegal immigrants. But now, as his fellow Republican governors loudly voice many of the same sentiments, Kasich is urging them to ratchet down the rhetoric and try to work with President Barack Obama to solve one of the nation’s longstanding vexing problems.

The latest report from the nuclear negotiations with Iran indicates that they are likely to be extended.

Omri Ceren emails a status update suggesting that the negotiations have descended into a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.

On Friday, President Barack Obama flew Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) on Air Force One with other Democrats to a speech at a Las Vegas high school (Del Sol) where he delivered a speech to celebrate and promote his executive amnesty. Others aboard Air Force One, according to the White House, were Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Rep.

A handful of Senate Democrats are publicly expressing disapproval of the president´s executive action on immigration, but it´s not yet clear that any of them are willing to do anything to stop him. "Our immigration system is broken, and I support a comprehensive plan to fix it, but executive orders aren’t the way to do it," Missouri senator Claire McCaskill said in a statement issued late Friday afternoon. "I am as frustrated as anyone that Congres is not doing its job, but the President shouldn´t make such significant policy changes on his own," Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana said in

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) revealed on Saturday that Republican leadership, led by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Oh), has no intention of resisting President Obama’s executive amnesty that he ordered on Thursday. Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steven K. Bannon asked the congresswoman, who was a guest on Breitbart News Saturday Sirius XM Patriot radio, “Has there been any firm commitment from the leadership of the Republican party saying that this amnesty is not going to happen?” Bachmann replied with a question, “Do you want the truth? Okay, I’ll tell all of Breitbart listeners what happened this

Americans are inveterate tinkerers — a trait commented on by observers from de Tocqueville to Winston Churchill. That’s why it’s not surprising that the bureaucrats at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would want to keep tweaking Obamacare. (Snip) The geniuses who brought us the dysfunctional website healthcare.gov, are in a panic because just about every Obamacare policy is going up in price. So rather than having American citizens deal with such unpleasantness, our intrepid bureaucrats have hit upon a brilliant scheme; why not change the auto-renewal rules of Obamacare premiums by automatically shifting a

Just when you thought no one could possibly be worse than Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), you remember there is always Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Fifty-eight percent of likely U.S. voters have an unfavorable opinion of Pelosi, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll. What’s more, a whopping 41 percent have a “very unfavorable” view of the Maryland native. What is there not to like about Pelosi? After all, Planned Parenthood awarded her with its “highest recognition of leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions” for her work in support of abortion. Of course, being a “Catholic” the Catholic Church ruled that she

A research team conducting a dive in Monterey Bay off the coast of California have captured first-ever video of a rarely-seen denizen of the deep called the black seadevil. The creature was spotted this week in the dark, deep waters 1,900 feet below the surface by researchers with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. "We´ve been diving out here in the Monterey Canyon regularly for 25 years, and we´ve seen three," MBARI Senior Scientist Bruce Robinson told the San Jose Mercury News Friday.

Deputies were responding to a fire in the Plantation Woods neighborhood of northwest Tallahassee at around 10 a.m., Leon County Sheriff´s Office spokesman James McQuaig said. The first deputy to approach the scene was shot. "He was ambushed and he was shot and he was killed," McQuaig said.

The grand jury investigating the killing of Michael Brown by Ferguson, Mo., police Officer Darren Wilson is not meetinging this weekend and will reconvene Monday, sources told ABC News. Speculation that a decision on whether to indict Wilson in the shooting was coming soon has increased tensions in a town that already was on edge. Federal, state and county officials have been ramping up their readiness in case there is a fresh wave of angry and, at times, violent protests over the jury´s decision. Protesters have been demanding that Wilson be charged with murder for the Aug. 9 shooting of

President Obama is an Alinskyite.? That assertion is not an epithet — well, not primarily. True, I would not describe someone I admired as an “Alinskyite.” Saul Alinsky was a loathsome figure — a radical statist who whose toxic brew of thoroughgoing deceit and brass-knuckles extortion (“direct action”) has become a part of mainstream politics. But in tying the president to the seminal community organizer whose theories and tactics so influenced him, my purpose is more to decode than to insult him. Of course, calling Obama an “Alinskyite” draws cataracts of condemnation from the Democrat-media complex — for the same

Dear Reader (including those of you in the shadows), Like a cannibal in a coma ward, I have no idea where to begin. It is always remarkable to me — which is why I am remarking upon it — how the only way this president can be rescued from a bad news cycle is if an even worse one comes along. This is a source of frustration for many on the right who get outraged by the fact that “we” don’t talk enough about Fast & Furious or Benghazi or the IRS scandal or the VA scandal or Ukraine/Syria/Islamic State/China/Libya/Gitmo

CORPUS CHRISTI - What if they get us? It’s a question Martina Martinez has asked herself during her time living in three states, and now Corpus Christi, as she worked in restaurants and cleaning houses. The fear had been there since she came to the United States from a town in the Central Mexico state of Guanajuato 12 years ago. Life was miserable there, she said, hard to make ends meet. So Martinez walked north for days until she reached the Rio Grande, crossed the river near Eagle Pass, and kept walking. She’s now a stay-at-home mom of three children,

NBC´s Chuck Todd on Thursday night found a new way to compliment Barack Obama. Politicking host Larry King asked the Meet the Press anchor if he "liked" the President. Todd quickly responded "yes" and added, "I mean, he´s very easy to talk to...You sit there and have these off-the-record sessions with him." The journalist enthused, "They´re just very nourishing conversations." [MP3 audio here.] Nourishing? Earlier in November, the anchor defended the President´s famous contention that "bitter Americans" "cling" to guns and religion. Todd mused that these attacks are simply Obama "observing the way an anthropologist would observe a society." In

For many people, autumn means the crunch of leaves and the roasting of chestnuts and sharp air about the nose. For me, it means one thing: sex. I oversee the Bad Sex in Fiction Award for the London-based Literary Review, which has been handing out this annual distinction since 1993. This year’s laureate will be crowned in early December. The prize was inaugurated when the late Auberon Waugh, son of Evelyn and editor of the magazine, noticed a pattern in many new novels: sex scenes that did nothing to develop plot or character and whose inclusion, he suspected, was the result

A year ago this week, no one could escape the wall-to-wall coverage of the Kennedy assassination’s 50th anniversary. Every major U.S. network and many in other countries produced documentary programs and segments about President John F. Kennedy’s administration and his untimely death. Almost all newspapers, magazines, and websites published special editions or wide-ranging stories. Even Dallas came to terms with history and held its first-ever commemoration of the city’s most tragic day. After the intense 2013 hoopla, it’s a good bet there won’t be much fuss about this Saturday’s 51st anniversary. Yet one effect of the previous November’s concentrated focus

President Obama told Americans Saturday that his action granting legal status and work permits to nearly 5 million illegal immigrants is “certainly not amnesty, no matter how often critics say it.” “Amnesty is the immigration system we have today — millions of people living here without paying their taxes, or playing by the rules,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. “And the actions I took this week will finally start fixing that.” The president signed documents Friday that will shield nearly half of the illegal immigrants in the U.S. from deportation. Mr. Obama said he was forced to take the

Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters Saturday afternoon that “big” and “serious gaps” remain between the United States and Iran as both nations rush to ink a deal aimed at containing Tehran’s nuclear work just over 48 hours before a self-imposed deadline for the talks expires. In between sit-downs with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, Kerry consulted with major players in the Middle East, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a senior State Department official told the Free Beacon. With the deadline approaching, Kerry admitted that talks have been very difficult, though he refused to provide actual details about what has

I am a legal immigrant. I did not choose to come to the United States—I was carried here, by my parents, who arrived with one suitcase and nothing else. They were not fleeing political oppression, religious persecution, or economic collapse. In fact, as white South Africans in the 1970s, they were born into a life of exclusive privilege and prosperity. My father had grown up poor but made his way to medical school. A life of wealth awaited. Yet my parents chose to immigrate to the United States instead, living in a basement apartment with no family nearby, enduring a Chicago

CLAYTON, Mo. — On Saturday, grand jury watch started to feel more like a hurricane watch here in the heart of St. Louis County. Workers scrambled Saturday morning to barricade police headquarters and other government buildings, residents grabbed supplies at a corner store and some shop owners finished boarding up windows. “We’ve never seen anything like this,” said Quentin Virgil who repairs shoes across the street from the St. Louis County Police Department. “The law office next door is boarded up. That’s not normal.” Nothing in the St. Louis area seems normal as the community anxiously awaits a grand jury’s
