Obama Regime Earned Their Humiliation

The Egyptian government humiliated Secretary of State Kerry by subjecting him to a security scan. Since the Egyptian government rightly outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood as they are a terrorist group, and since the Obama regime is one of that terrorist group's strongest supporters, this humiliation was well-deserved.

There is No Escape from Obama's Health Insurance Scheme

Man from Oklahoma spent 3 months just to cancel the health insurance he purchased from Obama's scheme. No wonder a new survey shows that only 18% Americans believe they have been helped by Obama's scheme whereas 35% claim that they have been harmed by it. Obama's health insurance scheme: Doing more harm than good. Meanwhile, CNN and Gallup polls show that Obama's approval rating is entrenched at 42%. In other words, not only have all Independents deserted Obama, even a small number of Democrats have done so. This can only bode ill for Democrats during this year's mid-term elections. I am also pleased to report that a DC Circuit Court panel ruled by 2-1 to eliminate Obama's subsidies for 36 federal health insurance exchanges. This is a crippling blow to Obama's scheme because millions of people will see their insurance premiums skyrocket. It also sets up another opportunity for the Supreme Court to strike down another portion of Obama's scheme.

Finally in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice (NHD), new study shows massive waste in the NHD, with some hospitals spending 8 times as much as others to purchase the same products. It would surprise no rational economist, who is aware that when people believe that they have a bottomless pile of money to spend from (i.e. taxpayers' money), they are not likely to spend too much time comparing prices. At the same time, the supply side, aware that there are such idiotic State consumers, will also see no reason to control costs. The net result is massive inflation. Naturally, liberals will then call for price controls and the suppliers who can't adapt to a sudden and significant change will either be driven out of business or move abroad, further limiting choice for domestic patients.

Obama's Health Care Agenda is About Murdering Veterans

Veterans Affairs hospitals across the country reported more than 500 incidents last year where patients were gravely injured or died as a result of the care they received.
Vials of morphine were systemically stolen from a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center and replaced with water and saline so that dying veterans got the wrong treatments....
Philadelphia's Veterans Affairs benefits center was caught failing to process old claims dating back to 2011 and even altering them to disguise the fact that they have not been processed for years.

Meanwhile in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, almost 6 million people/year have to turn to their emergency medical service because they couldn't get appointments with their general practitioners. From 1988-2000, almost 100 elderly patients were killed by drug overdose at the Gosport War Memorial Hospital at Hampshire.

Greenies = Useful Idiots for Russia

Russia is secretly working with environmental groups campaigning against fracking in an attempt to maintain Europe's dependence on energy imports from Moscow, the secretary-general of Nato has said.
Meanwhile, the size of Antarctica's ice sheet reached a record level of 2.1 million sq. mi. Liberals are proving that their environmentalism is nothing more than a front for graft as a woman convicted of voter fraud for voting for Obama 6 times also "sat on the board of a group that received an Obama administration Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grant." The Obama regime is also proving that their green zealotry has nothing to do with protecting wildlife as they granted a permit to a wind farm to kill up to 5 endangered golden eagles in 5 years. As one of the rare signs of light during the Obama regime, US oil dependence collapsed from 60% to 30%.

Hillary Clinton's Defense of a Child Rapist

In 1975, Hillary Clinton successfully helped a child rapist get a shorter prison sentence. Meanwhile, Bill Clinton gave his wife tips on how to use his possible death to her maximum political advantage. Hillary Clinton also lied about the recent Supreme Court decision on the contraception mandate. From the annals of the top 0.1% comes the Clintons, who are worth more than $50 million and stand to gain nearly a million from taxpayers this year. They are also trying to evade the death tax even though they championed raising it.

A Curious Emigration Pattern

60% of the wealthy in China have either emigrated or are planning to do so. This is a stunning statistic. According to traditional migration theory, those most likely to emigrate are middle to lower middle class. The idea being that the wealthy are doing extremely well, therefore they have little motivation to leave whereas the poor can't afford the journey. In contrast, the middle and lower-middle classes have aspirations but are frustrated by being unable to achieve them. That such a large percentage of the wealthy in China are seeking an exit is rather surprising.

Obama Makes History Again!

Frustration and legal challenges over the network of doctors and hospitals for Obamacare patients have marred an otherwise successful rollout of the federal healthcare law in California.
In other words: Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play? Meanwhile, the inspector general of the Dept. of Health and Human Services reported that applications for Obama's health insurance scheme contain millions of errors that the federal government cannot verify. Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (Democrat, Nevada) had the foresight of exempting his staff from Obama's scheme. Pity the rest of the country can't get a similar exemption. No wonder Obama won a plurality of the votes when it comes to choosing the worst president since WWII. Finally in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice (NHD), a hospital that suffers from a serious shortage of nurses can afford to pay more than $920,000/year to a manager.

Eurozone Unemployment Rate Entrenched at 11.6%
