The Affordable Care Act took a potentially serious hit today when the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a rule that extended the law’s health-care subsidies to residents of the three-dozen states where the federal government runs a health insurance exchange.
But the fact that another court of appeals upheld the same rule on the same day shows that the legal issue is very thorny and will very likely be ultimately resolved by the Supreme Court. And the administration probably will come out ahead in the end.

SCOTUS has a thing about thinking laws mean what they literally say. They are also very jealous about division of power.

'Investigators from the Government Accountability Office have been able to register fake applicants with fictitious identifying documents for health plans and federal subsidies through ObamaCare, according to a published report.

The Washington Post reports that investigators were able to obtain subsidized health coverage for eleven of twelve fictitious applicants online or over the phone. The investigators used invalid or missing Social Security numbers or inaccurate citizenship information in applying for coverage. In one of the eleven approved instances, the paper reported that the application was denied, but later approved at the second attempt.

The Post also reported that six attempts were made to sign up false applicants via in-person representatives. In five of those cases, the representative did not know that the applicant's income was too high to receive a subsidy in the first place.'

The White House is developing a workaround to let religious nonprofits opt out of ObamaCare's contraception mandate without filing a form they say violates their religious belief, according to a senior administration official.

Religious non-profits that do not want to provide free contraception to their workers can opt-out by submitting a Form 700 stating their religious objection to contraception. Insurance companies can then use the form to provide free contraception to workers and get tax credits from the government in return.

While the officials provided no further details, they emphasized the regulation will not shift the burden of paying for contraception to the employees.

The news comes after the Supreme Court issued an injunction in favor of Wheaton College, an evangelical institution in Illinois that will not have to fill out the third-party form while the high court makes its ruling, which isn't expected until at least fall.

The Justice Department had argued the college falls under the “accommodation” category cited in the recent Hobby Lobby case which exempts it from directly paying for worker's contraception. As part of the accommodation, it should be required to fill out the form so third-party insurers can use it to get tax credits.

“The administration believes the accommodation is legally sound but in light of the Supreme Court order regarding Wheaton College, the Departments intend to augment their regulations to provide an alternative way for objecting non-profit religious organizations to provide notification, while ensuring that enrollees in plans of such organizations receive separate coverage of contraceptive services without cost sharing," said a senior administration official.

Obumbles "leads from behind," as in his behind.

Not everyone leads from behind.

While the Leader of the Free World — President Obama — heads off for another round of fund-raisers, two of America’s closest allies are showing how to confront a belligerent Vladimir Putin over the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17.

Start with Australia’s prime minister, Tony Abbott. The shoot-down is no accident, he says, it’s “an unspeakable crime.”

He went on to add that “criminals should not be allowed to get away with what they’ve done.” More than two dozen Australians were on that flight.

Abbott pointed a finger at Russia for stirring trouble in Ukraine and dismissed Putin’s phony denials. We know Moscow got the message, because it responded by calling Abbott’s remarks “unacceptable.”

Undeterred, this week Australia pushed through UN Security Council Resolution 2166, condemning the downing of the flight and demanding a “full, thorough and independent investigation.”

Meanwhile, Britain’s David Cameron says Europe must “fundamentally change its approach” to Russia if Putin doesn’t end his war in Ukraine. Specifically, he says France’s plan to sell Moscow naval ships has now become “unthinkable.” It’s time, he says, for Europe “to make our power, influence and resources felt.”

That’s a tall order, given how much Europe is entwined with Putin’s Russia. In addition to lucrative arms sales, Europe depends on Russia for much of its natural gas. And Russian oligarchs pour billions of their ill-gotten gains into financial and property markets from London to Limassol.

But Cameron and Abbott are pushing in the right direction, calling Putin out for a crime that would never have occurred but for his aggression toward his neighbors, and demanding real consequences for it.

In a better world, these two prime ministers could count on the full backing of the Obama administration.

But they know they cannot. Which only makes us more grateful for their willingness to step up and fill the leadership void left by Uncle Sam.

Lefist Palestinian nationalist group that formed after the Six Day War of 1967 and pioneered terrorist strategies in the early 1970s. Once a key player in Palestinian politics,the PFLP lost influence in the 1990s and was sidelined as Yasir Arafat established the Palestinian Authority...
he PFLP, which pioneered such terror tactics as airline hijackings, formed in December 1967, after the Arab states' overwhelming defeat in the Six Day War. In 1968, the PFLP joined the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the main umbrella organization of the Palestinian national movement, which was then committed to a strategy of "armed struggle." The PFLP became the second-largest PLO faction, after Arafat's own al-Fatah. The PFLP sought to topple conservative Arab states, destroy Israel, and apply Marxist doctrine to the Palestinian struggle, which it saw as part of a broader proletarian revolution. The group received support from the Soviet Union and China...

Location/Area of Operation

SYRIA has provided financial support, training, and safe haven. LIBYA has also helped the PFLP..
