  • Fate of ObamaCare co-ops uncertain after half collapse

    The fate of a network of alternative “co-op” health plans started under ObamaCare remains uncertain going into 2016, after half of them collapsed amid deep financial problems. The co-ops are government-backed, nonprofit health insurers propped up with over $2 billion in taxpayer loans. Twelve of the 23 co-ops established under the Affordable Care Act, though, have gone or are expected to go under by the end of the year, leaving customers who used them scrambling for coverage and taxpayer money at risk. But, as lawmakers on Capitol Hill demand answers on what’s being done, the Obama administration is offering few...

    The Department of Energy (DOE) announced $125 million in new spending Monday to fund 41 green energy projects ahead of the United Nations global warming summit set to take place next week. DOE is funding dozens of green technologies through the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, or ARPA-E, program to find technological solutions to fighting global warming. ARPA-E projects are ones the government thinks show promise, but aren’t yet commercially viable. “As we look beyond COP21, the energy technologies the Department of Energy invests in today will provide the solutions needed to combat climate change and develop a global low-carbon economy...

One good place to start would be the grade school level math required to analyze the most common claims being tossed...

    After finally meeting President Obama last night, Ahmed Mohamed and his family plan to leave the United States for the foreseeable future. Schools from across the country have made offers to Ahmed since he was arrested at Irvings MacArthur High last monthhis homemade clock confused with a hoax bomb, transforming him into a symbol of perceived anti-Muslim bias. But apparently it was an offer from the Middle East that most intrigued the family. The Mohameds announced today that theyve accepted a foundations offer to pay for the 14-year-olds high school and college in Doha, Qatar, which Ahmed visited a few...

    The uneven distribution of new cards is leaving a window open for scams. Fraudsters are sending out fake emails pretending to be credit card issuers telling people they need to update their account by sending a response confirming personal information or clicking on a link in order to get an upgraded card, according to The Federal Trade Commission.
  • Abrupt climate change can occur below 2C warming rise (It can happen even when it isn't happening)

    Climate change could arrive with startling speed. New research has identified at least 37 tipping points that would serve as evidence that climate change has happened and happened abruptly in one particular region. And 18 of them could happen even before the world warms by an average of 2C, the proposed safe limit for global warming. Weather is what happens, climate is what people grow to expect from the weather. So climate change, driven by global warming as a consequence of rising carbon dioxide levels, in response to more than a century of fossil fuel combustion, could be ...

    The lottery is akin to the magical kingdom where dreams come true. In New York, their constant advertisements on television assure us that all you need is “a dollar and a dream.” Sure, your odds of hitting the big, top level jackpot are significantly worse than getting hit by lightning while being attacked by a shark, but hey… somebody’s got to win, right? And every week somebody does, leading to a huge weight off their minds if they were financially struggling.Unless, of course, they happen to live in Illinois where the state has stopped paying the winners while still...

    Matt Lauer pushes a rewrite of history with the movie "Truth". On the Today Show, at about 08:44 central time, Lauer gave discredited Dan Rather the opportunity to rewrite history. Lauer shamelessly promots the movie based on the book written by Mary Mapes, who uncritically accepted the fraud that advanced the narrative she was promoting. Rather made the outrageous claim that the story that he promoted to stop President George Bush's re-election bid was "true". It echoes his response at the time that the fraudulent documents that he used in his attempt to discredit President "Dubya" Bush were...

    Clock boy Ahmed Mohamed made it to Mecca Friday for umrah, the Arabic word for pilgrimage, the portion of his Middle Eastern tour sponsored by the Saudi government. The trip also included the 14-year-olds parents and other relatives, including one uncle who pushed the Islamophobia narrative. The uncle, identified by Arab News as Moussa Al-Hassan, asserted: The ordinary American citizen lives in a state of fear of Arabs because of the American medias portrayal of him as an extremist terrorist.

    WND EXCLUSIVE Obama's U.N. plan: Globalize cops against 'violent extremists' Conservative Christians 'becoming the targets' Published: 7 days ago Leo Hohmann President Obamas new Strong Cities Network, announced with little fanfare last week at the United Nations, appears to be another effort to strip authority from local police departments and to demonize conservative Christians, say advocates of civil and religious liberties. The stated goal of the program is to connect local police departments with their peers around the world in an effort to combat violent extremism, according to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who announced the program to the U.N. on...

    Doubtless you have heard more than once the term American Exceptionalism. It implies, in short, that we are somehow special, different, superior. We are the city upon a hill whose freedoms and accomplishments set us apart. Alexis de Tocqueville coined the phrase midway through the 19th century, and it has enjoyed constant deployment by politicians and pundits ever since, because it lights a warm bulb of self-satisfaction in many bellies and people feeling good about themselves are easier to convince. Salesmen thrived on this axiom before Babylons bricks were laid. For the sake of comparison, heres something exceptional: Mdecins...

    Its usually the first warning to someone whos about to enter into a complicated legal agreement: Be sure to read the fine print. Looks like President Obama and the team that negotiated the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran didnt do that. Or, worse still, they did but hoped no one else would. Too late for that. Fox News James Rosen reports some senior US officials involved in the negotiations have concluded that a key element of the deal conflicts with federal law and cant be implemented. Unless Congress changes the law, that is. But since majorities in both houses...
