The health insurance exchanges that are the beating heart of Obamacare are on the edge of collapse, with premiums rising sharply for ever narrower provider networks, non-profit health co-ops shuttering their doors, and even the biggest insurance companies heading for the exits amid mounting losses. Even the liberal Capitol Hill newspaper The Hill is warning of a possible “Obamacare meltdown” this fall.
Looking at the situation in the U.S. and the turmoil in the world it will be astonishing if we even make it to the “elections” this November. Obama does not want to leave the office. He has not completed his “fundamental transformation” and there are several avenues available to him that have not yet been pursued. All of them involve a dramatic event that will enable him to suspend elections and remain in office until the end of the emergency (therefore indefinitely).
Heat Street has compiled evidence of the media’s growing willingness to touch the forbidden question of the Democratic nominee’s health. Does she need to release those medical records to be straight with the public?
If the free market does not produce a gold standard, it's a fake standard. It is based on government promises. Do not trust it. Nixon implemented what was implicit from the beginning: a violation of contract with the public. Roosevelt had broken the contract with the American public in 1933.

Illegal immigration in 2016 has already surpassed 2015 with two months still to go in the fiscal year, driven by a renewed surge of illegal immigrant children and families from Central America attempting to sneak into the U.S.
This sort of corruption would be intolerable to liberals and the mainstream media if a Republican were engaged in it. Yet these same liberals reflexively dismiss all such corruption claims against team Clinton as lacking "definitive proof" or as insignificant or immaterial. As a result, for too long, the Clintons have gotten away such scams. One can only hope that this time Bill and Hillary meet their match in U.S. attorney Bharara.
A recent audit of a California database designed to keep track of known gang members in the state revealed that the watch list included the names of dozens of admitted gang members who are still in diapers. -- Proponents of efforts to prohibit gun ownership for people who end up on the federal government’s terror watch lists frame the proposals as no-brainers that will make all Americans safer. But what they never talk about is the inefficiency and downright inaccuracy of the government-maintained rosters that sometimes stand between citizens and basic rights.
A minimum wage law is not an employment law. It is an unemployment law. It’s the eighth plank of Communism. It is a collectivist idea that all workers are equal and should be paid the same, regardless of the task they perform.
