Once again Mr Obama says: “To hell with the law, if I don’t like it.”

White House To Ignore Court Ruling, Keep Handing Out Obamacare Subsidies

by Sarah Hurtubise

The Obama administration will continue handing out Obamacare subsidies to federal exchange customers despite a federal court’s ruling Tuesday that the subsidies are illegal.

A DC Court of Appeals panel ruled Tuesday morning that customers in the 36 states that didn’t establish their own exchange and use HealthCare.gov instead cannot be given premium tax credits, according to the text of the Affordable Care Act itself.

Read the detailed stories about the rulings here and here.

But the White House said in response that it will continue handing out the billions of taxpayer dollars in subsidies. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that while the case continues to be battled out in the courts, the administration will continue to dole out billions in tax credits to federally-run exchange customers.

“It’s important for people all across the country to understand that this ruling does not have any practical impact on their ability to continue to receive tax credits right now,” Earnest said in a press briefing Tuesday.

There you go.  Who needs all those pesky laws when you can just ignore them, or issue your own Executive Orders by Spite House fiat?

But here’s the kicker: this potentially could result in those persons who can no longer acquire subsidies opting out of ObamaKare via the “hardship” clause, as in: they can’t afford it.  And when some opt out, many more millions will do so also.

Obama Imperial Congress Won't Act

Here is the true face of black Democrats and Leftists

Essentially, all you need to know about Leftist blacks at the NAACP convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, below:

Ah yes, the accepting, welcoming, all-inclusive nature of Demorats and Leftists, willing to listen to other persons’ viewpoints and calmly discuss issues of note.

This is typical and true to form.

Thanks for being so obvious and so close-minded, NAACP supporters.  You merely confirm what people already think about you: you’re pretty much all of the intolerant hive mind.

Koch Brothers, Bush, Halliburton, blah blah blah.



Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick: another Obama nipple-sucker

You would expect no less from an historically-blue and Leftist state such as Massachusetts, having hosted such stellar luminaries as John Friggin’ Kerry, Ted Kennedy, the Kennedys in general, Elizabeth Warren and even Mitt (“I’m not sure I really want this presidency”) Romney.  More on Elizabeth Warren later, the bint.

Feds Ask Massachusetts to House Illegal Immigrants at Unused Shopping Malls

by Tony Lee

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (D) said that the Obama administration asked whether his state had facilities to house up to 1,000 illegal immigrant children at military bases or unused shopping malls.

On Friday, Patrick announced that he proposed two military bases where illegal immigrants can be housed. He said Joint Base Cape Cod in Bourne and Westover Air Base in Chicopee would have “spaces for children to sleep, eat, play and go to school,” and “the average stay for children sheltered there would be 35 days.” He said the federal government would pick up the tab.

Patrick said the illegal immigrant children will “need age-appropriate toys and books” and the “company of responsible adults, especially those who speak Spanish.” He also said the state may work with the federal government, in addition to “faith and refugee organizations.”

I’d formerly decided to table this topic for a while, but circumstances dictate that I may as well address it now: here is where some people of faith and I part ways drastically.

Including Hugh Hewitt and me.

He says: “Make the border kids American.”  I say: his suggestions will not help this country.  The United States was not set up to become the farrow bucket to the world.

Some young Journalistas have said this is an influx unprecedented.  Not precisely: there was the slam of Vietnamese from the 70s following Vietnam, and the Marieli boat lift courtesy of James Earl Carter.  But this flood from the southern border is unprecedented in that DC has no intent to make it stop.

In fact, no illegals were allowed into this country between 1924 and 1952.

Very few people protested then.

I say now: move these illegals right around and back from whence they came.  The Inn is full.  The US cannot be the repository for the world’s ills.  The No Vacancy sign should be illuminated in its finest neon stance.

I believe in national sovereignty.  I believe in closed borders, which help establish and keep national sovereignty.  I do not believe it is the job of the United States of America to take in every person from every surrounding or distant country.  It is the job of the United States to keep itself sovereign which means it can be free and independent.

For now, those persons “fleeing” South America and Mexico are fleeing pretty much what Mr Obama and Leftists want to establish — a Leftist and/or Socialist state.

So: if these Leftist/Socialist regimes are so superior to what exists in the United States, why is it that people want to “flee” them and enter the US?


  • Cowardice asks the question: is it safe?
  • Expediency asks the question: is it politic?
  • Vanity asks the question: is it popular?
  • But conscience asks the question: is it right?

Right for the nation or right for some individuals?  Thinking: demography is prophecy.

I am not willing to make the United States another Third World armpit, as seems to be advocated by Hugh and any number of Leftist “Progressives.”

Enough is enough.



45 years ago today: Apollo 11 lands on the moon

Saturn V, Apollo 11, July 1969I’m not a conspiracy theorist; I believe that the United States did in fact land two men on the moon for the first time on this day, 45 years ago, July 20th of 1969.

Watch live webcasts celebrating this event here.

I wrote about the 40th anniversary here.

An outstanding photo tribute to Apollo 11 is here.

Man last stepped on the moon in 1972.  The United States never returned.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the surface of our moon, passed away at the age of 82 on August 26th, 2012.  My personal tribute to this American hero is here.

How many men walked on the moon, and who were they?  In chronological order:

Neil Armstrong – Apollo 11 – July, 1969
Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin – Apollo 11 – July, 1969
Charles “Pete” Conrad – Apollo 12 – November, 1969
Alan Bean – Apollo 12 – November, 1969
Alan Shepard – Apollo 14 – February, 1971
Edgar Mitchell – Apollo 14 – February, 1971
David Scott - Apollo 15 – July, 1971
James Irwin – Apollo 15 – July, 1971
John Young - Apollo 16 – April, 1972 (also on Apollo 10, without landing)
Charles Duke – Apollo 16 – April, 1972
Eugene Cernan – Apollo 17 – December, 1972 (also on Apollo 10, without landing)
Harrison Schmitt – Apollo 17 – December, 1972

Another little known fact: no one has walked on the moon who was born after 1935.

I can still recall that day distinctly: I was with my parents at the home of one of their friends in Centerville, Ohio. The television was on in the living room. Grainy black and white images jumped back and forth on the screen.

Can you recall: where were you and what were you doing when America landed on the moon?


Here is what a flawed but still important president looks like:
