nObamacare’s Tax-Time Torment

 nObama's Visit to Cuba Will Accomplish  Little   On Sunday, the whole nObama family touched down in Cuba for a historic visit, as this will be the first time in 88 years that a sitting American president visited the island. While there, Barack nObama will visit everyone from Cuban dictator Raul Castro to political dissenters calling for Liberty. However, nObama's visit will have failed if he doesn't condemn Castro's police state.
          Last year, nObama claimed that he was interested in visiting Cuba only if he saw the country making progress towards Liberty. "I'm not interested in just validating the status quo," he said. However, on Friday, the U.S. Coast Guard picked up 18 Cubans who were fleeing the country on homemade rafts, trying to cross the 90 miles between Cuba and Florida. Hours before nObama's jet touched down on communist soil, the Cuban government  arrested 50 protesters from the group Ladies in White for demonstrating and throwing pro-Liberty leaflets into the air. The protests have become a weekly occurrence.
          The dissidents said Cuba's crackdown on political speech has increased in the weeks leading up to nObama's visit, showing that things are just as they have been. The Castros are still in charge, after all. While nObama hoped for a diplomatic shortcut, Liberty could yet come to the country ruled by a police state. It's possible that the flow of goods and information could foster more Liberty for the nation, especially when the 85-year-old Castro leaves power — just as when Ronald Reagan began to trade with the Soviet Union. But it will take time and an actual friend of Liberty in the White House.  -The Patriot Post

 Remember the Global Threat of Terror 
First, good news: After a months-long manhunt, Belgian law enforcement captured alleged Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam in a neighborhood of Brussels on Friday. It was a blow to the Islamic State, as it disrupts the group's plans. Abdeslam said he was planning another attack. Now he's a mine of intelligence that interrogators hope to exploit. However, the fact that Abdeslam evaded capture for months shows the extent of the network in Belgium sympathetic to violent jihad.
          Make no mistake: The tentacles of that network reaches into the United States. Late last week, the FBI finally announced the 18-year-old who was killed by police after stabbing four people on the Merced campus of the University of California was inspired by the Islamic State. Faisal Mohammad  carried out a terrorist attack Nov. 4, 2015, despite the stubborn insistence of California law enforcement to the contrary.
          This wasn't the only example of political correctness being destroyed by stark reality over the last few days. The city of Östersund, Sweden, canceled its earth hour celebration over worries that turning off the lights for one hour on Mar. 18 would have encouraged sexual assaults from Muslim migrants.
          Back in the Middle East, the violence continues and even grows. The Islamic State bombed one of Turkey's most popular shopping area Sunday  and, the day before, a U.S. Marine was killed during a skirmish with the terror group. He is officially the first American combat death in fighting with the Islamic State. "There is no safe place in Iraq," said Najim Abdullah al-Jabouri, an Iraqi general. "Even the Green Zone in Baghdad, which houses the U.S. Embassy, is being targeted by rockets." Indeed, we must destroy the nexus of terror before it grows so much that the U.S. becomes the site of a Paris-like mass terror attack by a group the commander in chief still treats as the JV team.  -The Patriot Post

 Diversity Must Be Only Skin Deep 
Leftists sure do love diversity — to a point. Their favored constituencies include blacks, Hispanics and those suffering from gender disorientation pathology. But each member of those groups must yield to leftist group think, or they'll be excommunicated. The thought police were on patrol most recently at Brown University, where Janet Mock, a black transgender activist and author, was forced to cancel an appearance after students objected to the group that invited her. Hillel House is a Jewish group that asked Mock to speak, but a group of Palestinian activists accused Hillel of having "defended and even advocated for the Israeli state's policies of occupation and racial apartheid." Furthermore, the aggrieved students say, Israel is guilty of "colonialism, ethnic cleansing, and genocide of native Palestinians." In a petition, the students complained, "Hillel's Moral Voices campaign has chosen the topic of LGBTQ rights this year. This hides the fact that for decades, the state of Israel and Israeli advocacy organizations (like Hillel) have been engaging in pinkwashing, a strategy that tries to improve Israel's image and rebrand it as a liberal, modern, and 'hip' country."' 
          Mock is hardly alone. Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner has been ridiculed by leftists for generally being conservative politically, but worse, for daring to say nice things about Ted Cruz. No doubt thanks to that backlash, Jenner even felt compelled last week to deny endorsing Cruz.
          And then there's Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), who is black, said last month that Barack nObama should nominate a black because "to have an African-American voice that has definitely not been there since Thurgood Marshall would really be an incredible contribution to our country." Thomas is conservative, therefore he isn't "an African-American voice."
          In other words, leftists love diversity, as long as it's only skin deep.  -The Patriot Post

.
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ The Palestinian Authority's endless threats to suspend security coordination with Israel are a carefully crafted bluff designed to extort more funds from Western donors... scare the Israeli public and provide a cover for its refusal to talk peace with Israel. Many Palestinians say these threats are also intended for "internal consumption" -- namely to appease Hamas and other radical factions and to refute charges that the Palestinian Authority (PA) is betraying its people by "collaborating" with Israel. Hamas has conditioned "reconciliation" with President Mahmoud Abbas's ruling Fatah faction in the West Bank on Fatah ending all forms of security coordination with Israel. Hamas claims that the security coordination is directed mostly against its members and supporters in the West Bank.        http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/7647/palestinians-threats

{wallstreetdaily.com} ~ Politicians launching personal attacks on each other…A politician with funny hair railing against Muslim immigration…Other politicians want to build literal barriers to prevent the flow of immigrants... This is the Republican primary in the United States, right? Wrong! There isn’t a slump-Trump to be found in this case. Instead, I’m talking about the current merry-go-round in the not-so-well-named European Union. Europe is seeing the rise of many nationalist politicians – such as Marine le Pen in France, and the Netherlands’ Geert Wilders the guy with the funny hair. Europe is falling apart at the seams politically. No country is happy with the state of the Union right now. At the top of the list, of course, is Britain.        http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2016/03/21/britain-exit-european-union/

{propublica.org} ~ It’s been four decades since the end of the Vietnam War, but the conflict has gotten renewed attention in recent weeks... Earlier this month, the Institute of Medicine released its final research study into the long-term effects of the toxic herbicide Agent Orange on Vietnam veterans, concluding that we still have no clear understanding of what the health consequences have been. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs also recently turned down an effort by Navy veterans – who contend their ships sucked in water contaminated by Agent Orange and used it for cooking and drinking – to get compensation for possible exposure to the chemical. The VA continues to limit benefits to sailors who can prove that they visited Vietnamese land or that their ships operated in inland rivers, even for just a day. The lack of solid research is one reason why ProPublica and the Virginian-Pilot launched a joint investigation last summer on the generational impact of Agent Orange – an ongoing crowdsourced effort that has received a tremendous response from thousands of veterans and their family members. https://www.propublica.org/podcast/item/vietnam-vets-fight-for-benefits-gets-new-crowdsourcing-boost?utm_source=pardot&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=d

nObama Administration squanders taxpayer money 
on failed green initiatives
.
{punchingbagpost.com} ~ President nObama has made it a point to emphasize our environment and its dwindling resources during his presidency... While solar and other forms of clean energy are great alternatives to traditional power sources, nObama has once again proven that he is too incompetent to get the job done. The Ivanpah solar plant in California represents yet another failure of President nObama’s solar power initiative. Turns out, the federally-backed $2.2 billion project is not producing the amount of electricity it is contractually required to send to PG&E Corp. Ivanpah may be forced to shut down if it doesn’t receive a considerable break this month from state regulators.  The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, dubbed the “world’s largest outdoor bird fryer” by Powerline Blog, uses more than 150,000 mirrors to reflect sunlight to several 450’ towers topped with boilers that create steam which is used to generate electricity.        http://punchingbagpost.com/the-green-president-fails-again

Military Admits Trillion Dollar F-35 Program Is A Failure
Joshua Krause
.
{activistpost.com} ~ For over a decade the US military has spent $1.5 trillion dollars to create an all-purpose fighter jet that would replace their diverse fleet of warplanes... It’s a project that has been rife with criticism for being grossly over budget and delayed for years, not to mention the fact that the plane is riddled with technical flaws and lacks maneuverability most recently, it was revealed that the F-35 has a faulty radar that needs to be frequently restarted. And each of these problem prone aircraft cost 3 to 5 times as much to manufacture as older fighter jets, like the F-15 and F-16. Now officials with the Pentagon are admitting that this massive boondoggle is a total bust. One official admitted that to replace the Air Force’s entire fleet, which was the original intention of the F-35 program, they would have eliminate a fifth of their squadrons to afford it. Two generals said that the whole idea of an all-purpose aircraft was flawed from the start, and the Pentagon is already planning a 6th generation fighter jet to replace the F-35. To maintain any semblance of air superiority, the military will be forced to maintain their older weapon systems alongside the F-35 until a replacement is made, which is the ultimate proof that the concept of an all-purpose fighter jet is a complete failure. By the time the next generation fighter is in production, which is expected by the year 2040, our fleet of F-15s and F-16s will be 70 years old and completely outclassed by Chinese and Russian aircraft.       http://www.activistpost.com/2016/03/military-admits-trillion-dollar-f-35-program-is-a-failure.html?utm_source=Activist+Post+Subscribers&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=7792cf1ac9-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_term=0_b0c7fb76bd-7792cf1ac9-387888649

{gopusa.com} ~ For the last decade, Somali refugees have flocked to this conservative farm town on Colorado’s eastern plains. They’ve started a small halal mini-market and a restaurant... sent their children to the schools and worked at a meat processing plant. As much as Fort Morgan’s small town feel reminds many of their rural villages back home, some say they will feel like outsiders until they get what has so far eluded them: a permanent mosque. They are renting two small rooms for a makeshift version, for now. They say they’ve tried to buy property to build a mosque but believe no one wants to sell to them. “If we can own a mosque here, we will be more a part of the community,” said Abdinasser Ahmed, a local Somali leader and public schools teacher who fled war-torn Mogadishu, Somalia, in 2003, arrived in Fort Morgan in 2009 to work at the plant and is now a U.S. citizen.        http://www.gopusa.com/?p=7459?omhide=true

{wnd.com} ~ With Americans transfixed by election melodrama, especially on the Republican side, this would be a great time to pause for just a few minutes and seriously consider – possibly for the first time – this absolutely bizarre thing we call “the left.”... The left, righteously posing as protectors of women, blacks, gays, students, immigrants, the poor and other societal “victims” while demonizing conservatives and Christians as selfish, racist, anti-science, anti-woman, anti-immigrant and homophobic, in reality is the primary cause of the vast majority of the misery, suffering and injustice it claims to oppose. I document this stunning cause-and-effect relationship definitively in “The Snapping of the American Mind,” and since the book’s publication in October, the evidence just continues to pour in, confirming my thesis that not only is the left mad, but it is literally driving tens of millions of Americans right over the edge as well. As Rush Limbaugh put it recently, “… liberalism is driving people insane. It’s literally driving them insane.”   http://www.wnd.com/2016/03/how-the-left-revels-in-violating-the-10-commandments/

Wage Insurance: Paycheck Socialism

{thenewamerican.com} ~ Following the adoption of the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and numerous other cities, and with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders calling for an $18-trillion explosion of “democratic socialism” upon the United States... alarms bells are sounding loudly over the direction of the country. If President nObama has his way and presumably Hilly Clinton as well, another phase of the advancement of socialism in America may soon come to fruition: wage insurance. Simply put, wage insurance is payment by the government to workers who take jobs that pay less than their previous employment. nObama explained the idea in his State of the Union address last January: There would be limits to both dollars paid and the number of years in which payments could be received, but the effect is chilling: nObama is proposing that the United States take a headfirst plunge into socialism by paying fully employed workers taxpayer dollars simply for taking lesser employment. Income redistribution doesn't get more obvious.  http://www.thenewamerican.com/economy/economics/item/22803-wage-insurance-paycheck-socialism

nObamacare’s Tax-Time Torment

{freedomsback.com} ~ “Where is my 1095-A? This is what it must be like dealing with a government agency in a third world country.”
.
That was the lament on Twitter of just one poor citizen this week trying to get his tax records in order. Nationwide, hard-working Americans are struggling to meet the April 18 IRS filing deadline. Standing in the way: the bumbling nObamacare bureaucracy.
.
In Minnesota, an estimated 18,000 people who were on health insurance plans last year offered through MNsure, the state nObamacare health insurance exchange, still haven’t received their 1095-A form. It’s the “health insurance marketplace statement” required to file accurate tax returns and claim the premium tax credit.
.
Twin Cities officials blame “technical bugs” and promise they’ll be sending more of the documents out next week. But it’s small consolation to farmers in Minnesota who were required to file their taxes by March 1.
.
“This is the second year in a row MNsure has been late sending my 1095-A form and it’s cost me extra money when I have to file for an extension on my tax filings,” farmer Robert Marg of Winona County, Minnesota, told his local TV station.
.
In Hawaii, the paper-pushers sent out their 1095-A forms on time — but the documents are worthless to thousands of taxpayers enrolled in the state’s now-defunct nObamacare exchange, the Hawaii Health Connector. According to the Pacific Business News, “approximately 80 percent of the forms sent out to taxpayers” contain errors, including address problems.
.
The Aloha State is still digging out from the mess the overseers of the bankrupted state exchange made last year, when Hawaii Health Connector staff issued 1095-A forms manually because the bureaucracy did not have a working automated system for creating 1095-As. How many taxpayers were affected? “CMS and IRS have not been able to provide error rates for 2014,” PBN reported.
.
What century is this?
.
After I reported on my own bizarro 1095-A nightmare last year and revisited the nObamacare tax-time troubles last week in Conservative Review, I gathered yet more horror stories. Citizens trying to get through to the HealthCareGov.com hotline have been trapped in the spiral of “escalation” — Washington-speak for getting the runaround.
.
“On the phone with @HealthCareGov for more than an hour. I just want my 1095A or B form. #nomoreescalationsplease,” one nObamacare hostage wrote.
.
“So apparently you have to re-escalate the escalation of the escalation. All to get my 1095A. This is INSANE,” another wrote.
.
One reader detailed for me how she had withdrawn from Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, in 2014, yet received 1095-A forms two years in a row incorrectly showing that she was enrolled.
.
Insurer Anthem “said that they called Covered California and reported that I did not have coverage for 2015,” the reader told me. “Then 45 days later, we received a corrected 1095. However, it was not corrected. It was the same 1095 we previously received containing the same mistakes. After being on hold for 40 minutes with Covered California, the person I spoke with said, “Yes, I was not covered in 2015, but no one had gone into the system to generate a corrected 1095 and that I will be receiving the new one within 45 days. Unfortunately, that will be after April 15 when I am due to file taxes. What a nightmare.”
.
Yet another reader lamented that D.C. politicians have been deaf to their plight. “Thank you so much for the kindness in responding to me,” she wrote after we traded stories. “I am not kidding, I just about cried that a real human being has finally heard me. My husband and I know we are nobodies in the world. He’s a small-business owner a handyman and I have an online vintage store on Etsy. So no one on the Hill cares about what people like us are going through.”
.
It’s always taxpayers who are forced to pay for the incompetence and apathy of their government tormentors.
