WashPo: Feds released hundreds of immigrant murderers, drunk drivers, sex-crimes convicts

By Stephen Dinan-The Washington Times Monday, May 12, 2014

Immigration officials knowingly released dozens of murderers and thousands of drunken drivers back into the U.S. in 2013, according to Obama administration statistics that could undercut the president’s argument that he is trying to focus on the most serious criminals in his immigration enforcement.

WND Exclusive: Rand Paul's Voter-ID Flap Bogus

Senator's camp says N.Y. Times misconstrued position

Published: 1 day ago

The head of Sen. Rand Paul’s political action committee charges the New York Times misconstrued the Kentucky Republican’s comments about voter ID and refused to publish a statement of correction.

The Times report said the senator had broken with fellow Republicans over voter ID.

However, in a statement delivered to WND, Doug Stafford, Paul’s former chief of staff who now leads his political action committee, said the quote was taken out of context.

New McKinsey Survey: 74% Of Obamacare Sign-Ups Were Previously Insured

by Avik Roy, Forbes

One of the principal flaws in the coverage of Obamacare’s exchange enrollment numbers to date has been that the press has not made distinctions between those who have “signed up” for Obamacare-based plans, and those who have actually paid for those plans and thereby achieved enrollment in health insurance. A new survey from McKinsey indicates that a large majority of people signing up are now paying for their coverage. This is progress for the health law. But the survey still indicates that three-fourths of enrollees were previously insured.

Two months ago, I wrote about a prior McKinsey survey that found that the vast majority of people signing up for individual-market coverage in 2014 were previously insured, and that of the minority who had been previously uninsured, only 53 percent had paid their first month’s premium.

Would It Surprise You To Learn That You're the 1 Per Cent?

by Peter Jaworski, Visiting Assistant Professor, Georgetown University
The Huffington Post

When people talk about the "1%", I think they think that they are talking about a specific group of individuals, who have been and remain in that category over time.

When they say "We are the 99%" I think they think that that's a static category, designating a group of people who persist as members over their lifetime.

Would people be so upset if it turned out that the individuals who made up the 1% were different people over time? That those who are in the 1% spend most of their lives in the 99%, and will go back to being 99%ers after a few years of being 1%ers?

I'm not sure. I am sure that if those categories represented a permanent group of specific individuals, we would be justified in lamenting the state of the economy.

5-Step Medical Tourism Checklist

Why Is U.S. Health Care So Much More Expensive?

After years of research and many conversations with health policy experts, I see three key culprits of expensive health care in the U.S.

In no particular order, they are the third-party payer system (i.e., employer-provided health care), malpractice suits, and administra­tive support costs/paperwork.

The unintended consequence of in­stitutionalized employer-provided health care — a third-party payer for over 80% of the population — is to remove the pricing element from patients’ decision making.

Take Lasik eye surgery as a counter-example. Lasik is an elective proce­dure and, therefore, is NOT covered by insurance. The result is in just one decade, the average price has decreased from approximately $2,500 per eye to $400–1,500 per eye, depending on your location and the technology used.

Boko Haram = Al Qaeda = CIA

Nigeria is rich in oil. China is gaining a foothold in Africa to get its resources. The United States and its oligarch want to push China out and control African resources, especially Nigeria.

Enter the new, improved Al Qaeda.

... it is worth noting that covert financial support as well as military training has been channeled to Boko Haram by two of America’s staunchest allies: Saudi Arabia and the UK.

Boko Haram receives funding from different groups from Saudi Arabia and the UK, specifically from the Al-Muntada Trust Fund, headquartered in the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia’s Islamic World Society.

Moreover Boko Haram has ties to two Al-Qaeda affiliated organizations namely Al QWaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), both of which were supported covertly by Western intelligence and NATO (during the war on Libya).

(BenSwann.Com) Released Documents Cite Connections Between 9/11 Terrorists, Florida Family

By: Joshua Cook May 13, 2014

The U.S. Justice Department released four new, heavily censored documents, previously embargoed from the public eye about the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. According to the Miami Herald, the documents confirm that by 2002 the FBI had found “many connections” between 9/11 terrorists and the Florida family of “an allegedly wealthy international businessman” with ties to the Saudi Royal family.

'Does Ron Paul have the best plan to rescue kidnapped Nigerian girls?'

Now I'm not an advocate for intervention, but if the U.S. government insists on intervening in this situation, we must do so constitutionally.

P.S.- And I don't necessarily agree with the article either, and while I don't totally disagree either, I am merely posting this to share the article...

VP Biden's Son Appointed to Board of Ukrainian Gas Giant

Well, well, well. No conflict of interest here. I'm curious if Hunter-games Binden is even qualified to hold such a position. He might just fit right in with the rest of the US-installed Neo Nazi's over there.

...
Biden will advise on “transparency, corporate governance and responsibility, international expansion and other priorities” to “contribute to the economy and benefit the people of Ukraine.”
