Over 214,000 Doctors Opt Out Of Obamacare Exchanges

 

 

 

 

” Over 214,000 doctors won’t participate in the new plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA,) analysis of a new survey by Medical Group Management Association shows. That number of 214,524, estimated by American Action Forum, is through May 2014, but appears to be growing due to plans that force doctors to take on burdensome costs. It’s also about a quarter of the total number of 893,851 active professional physicians reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

  In January, an estimated 70% of California’s physicians were not participating in Covered California plans.

  Here are some of the reasons why:

1.      Reimbursements under Obamacare are at bottom-dollar – they are even lower than Medicare reimbursements, which are already significantly below market rates. “It is estimated that where private plans pay $1.00 for a service, Medicare pays $0.80, and ACA exchange plans are now paying about $0.60,” a study by the think-tank American Action Forum finds. “For example, Covered California plans are setting their plan fee schedules in line with that of Medi-Cal-California’s Medicaid Program-which means exchange plans are cutting provider reimbursement by up to 40 percent.” “

Massive Non-Citizen Voting Uncovered In Maryland

 

 

 

” An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years.

  The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes. The same group previously found that about 40,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland. 

  It is a federal crime to cast votes if you are not legally eligible to vote. Non-citizens, whether in the country legally or not, are prohibited from voting in most local and all state and federal elections. Yet the VVA investigation found that hundreds of non-citizens have been voting in Frederick County, Maryland. One in seven Maryland residents are non-U.S. citizens.

  Maryland state law makes it easier for non-citizens, both those present legally and those in the country against the law, to vote. Maryland issues drivers licenses to legal and illegal aliens. Driver’s licenses in turn make it easier under the Motor Voter law to register to vote. Maryland also offers copious taxpayer-funded social programs to non-citizens in the state. “

 

   This news , coming on the heels of yesterday’s allegations of “calibration errors” in Maryland and Illinois’ last week , along with the Washington Post’s recently published guide to states requiring no ID to vote puts the lie to the meme that vote fraud is a myth .

 

  Remember that every fraudulent vote negates the vote of a legal citizen , thus robbing that citizen of their civil right to participate in “free and fair” elections . Does your vote count ? Or has it been nullified by Mickey Mouse or the Dallas Cowboys ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

La Raza Promotes Washington Post Guide On Where People Can Vote Without An ID

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

“ Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic) graphic from the Post’s graphics team.” “

USDA Reports Show Fewer Students Buying School Lunch

 

 

School Lunch Fail

 

 

 

 

” It was just a week ago when an Oklahoma teen’s picture of her school lunch went viral on social media.
 
  It turns out that student is not alone in grumbling about school lunches, an investigation by the Washington Bureau discovered.
 
  Since new federal nutrition standards began rolling out in 2012, fewer students are buying school lunches, even though enrollment is going up.
 
  The Cox Washington Bureau reviewed U.S. Department of Agriculture documents and found thousands fewer students bought meals when stricter standards kicked in.
 
  The rules, championed by first lady Michelle Obama and approved by congress, require more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in lunches. Plus, the rules put limits on sodium, sugar, fat and calories.
 
  Nationwide, more than 1 million fewer students are taking advantage of school lunches each day, a drop of nearly four percent since 2012.”

Crowd Begins To File Out While Obama Speaks In Wisconsin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” As President Obama spoke this evening in Wisconsin, the crowd began to file out. Here’s video that captures some folks leaving, even as Obama’s voice can be heard in the background:

  Mike Lowe, a political reporter, also made the observation on Twitter. “Some people –not a lot, but some — are leaving as the President is speaking,” wrote Lowe.

  Obama spoke tonight at a rally for Mary Burke, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Wisconsin.

  Attendees at a recent campaign event President Obama attended in Maryland also left early a couple weeks ago.”

Md. Board Of Elections Probe Republican-To-Democratic Ballot Switch Claims

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Early voting just started last week in Maryland, but there are already accusations that some voting machines are changing Republican votes to Democrat. Now Republicans are calling for an investigation by the State Board of Elections.

  As Marylanders go to the polls, there are concerns that the vote you cast may not be for the candidate you want.

“ We’ve heard from scores of citizens in our district and around the state who have had this problem where they hit one button to vote for one person, and when they go to the summary they see that the other person was checked,” said Del Nik Kipke, (R) Anne Arundel County.

  Republicans say they’ve received several dozen reports of Republican votes being changed to Democrat.

  Del. Kathy Szeliga says it happened to her.”

 

 

  Isn’t it a mite peculiar that all of the reported “calibration errors” seem to result in the same republican to democrat vote switch and never from democrat to republican ? … hmm .   

 Oh , we nearly forgot , they all seem to be appearing in democratic controlled states , first Illinois and now Maryland , what a coincidence .

State Dept. Plans To Bring Foreign Ebola Patients To US For Treatment

 

 

 

 

 

” According to an article published yesterday by the Washington Times, the State Department is quietly planning to bring foreign Ebola patients to the U.S. for treatment. An internal State Dept. document reveals that the U.S. will agree to allow Ebola-infected doctors and other medical workers into the country for treatment, arguing that is the only way to convince other nations to send medical teams to West Africa to help combat the dreaded disease.

  Some countries “are implicitly or explicitly waiting for medevac assurances” before they will agree to send their own medical teams to join U.S. and U.N. aid workers on the ground, according to the Times, which has reviewed the document. The article says the document argues that other nations will be less likely to send medical teams to West Africa unless the U.S. promises to treat any medical workers who contract the disease.

” The United States needs to show leadership and act as we are asking others to act by admitting certain non-citizens into the country for medical treatment for Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) during the Ebola crisis,” says the four-page memo. The document was authored by Robert Sorenson, deputy director of the office of international health and biodefense.

  The Times says the memo states that the U.S. would prefer the patients be treated in Europe, but that there are some cases in which the U.S. is “the logical treatment destination for non-citizens.” “

The World Just Got A New, Entirely 3D-Printed Metal Gun

 

 

 

” Just under a year ago, Solid Concepts gave the world its very first look at what a 3D-printed metal gun could do. And to everyone’s surprise, the thing actually worked. Now, the metal 3D-printing firm have put out the 1911’s fancier successor—complete with Declaration of Independence inscription and all.”

” The original 1911 made waves when Solid Concepts released a video in which they successfully fired the pet project over 50 times. And this newest offering, dubbed the Reason, looks a hell of a lot more solid.”

   Here is a video from Solid Concepts that explains the manufacturing process used in the fabrication of the “Reason” and a wide array of other goods:

” More than anything, the added detail and inscriptions are a testament to how far the company’s sintering tech has come. Using a technique called direct metal laser sintering, Solid Concepts is able to 3D print the gun by melting metal powder with a laser. In other words, these things take far more know-how than the plastic versions that came before them. “

   … and here is a video of the predecessor of the “Reason” , Solid Concept’s , and the world’s , first all-metal 3D printed gun , the DMLS 1911 being test fired .

Ancient Virus Revived From 700-Year-Old Caribou Feces

 

 

 

 

 

” Researchers have reconstituted a viral genome from centuries-old caribou feces frozen in the subarctic, and they’ve used the ancient viruses to infect lab plants. The findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week, offer a rare glimpse of viral evolution. 

  Ancient viruses provide snapshots of past diversity and a way to trace viral evolution, but their concentrations are low and intact samples are rarely successfully isolated from the environment. Cryogenically preserved samples in nature may be an untapped repository of preserved ancient viral genetic material. 

  A team led by Eric Delwart from the University of California, San Francisco, analyzed viral genetic material contained in an ice core obtained by drilling through layers of accumulated caribou feces up to 4,000 years old in a permanent ice patch in the Northwest Territories of Canada. Caribou gather on ice patches to escape pesky flying insects and heat in the summertime. After eating nearby veggies, they deposit feces that contain their DNA, partially digested plant material, as well as viruses—which can remain frozen for millennia.”

” A whopping 71% of new jobs in New Hampshire since 2000 have gone to foreign immigrant workers—both those who are here illegally and legally—a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) found.

“ Job growth in New Hampshire has not been very strong,” Steven Camarota, CIS’s research director and the report’s co-author, said in a statement accompanying its release. “The situation for natives without a college education has been particular bad. Thus, it is surprising that many of New Hampshire’s politicians supported the Gang of Eight bill, which would give work authorization to illegal immigrants and dramatically increase the number of foreign workers allowed into the country in the future.”

  One particular politician in the state who supported the “Gang of Eight” bill, which would have hurt even more New Hampshire jobs than current immigration policy does, is incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). Shaheen voted for the immigration bill and regularly defends it on the campaign trail, despite the fact that the data that CIS found shows New Hampshire’s citizens are struggling, and illegal and legal immigrants are taking many of the state’s new jobs.”

Unmanned Antares Rocket Explodes After Liftoff

 

 

 

 

 

” An unmanned cargo rocket bound for the International Space Station exploded Tuesday over a launchpad in Virginia.

  No injuries were reported following the first catastrophic launch in NASA’s commercial spaceflight effort.

  The accident at Orbital Sciences Corp.’s launch complex at Wallops Island was sure to draw criticism over the space agency’s growing reliance on private U.S. companies in this post-shuttle effort.

  NASA is paying billions of dollars to Orbital Sciences and the SpaceX company to make station deliveries, and it’s counting on SpaceX and Boeing to start flying U.S. astronauts to the orbiting lab as early as 2017. NASA spokesman Rob Navias said there was nothing on the lost flight that was urgently needed by the six people living on the space station.

  Orbital Sciences’ Antares rocket blew up over the launch complex, just six seconds after the liftoff. The company said everyone at the site had been accounted for, and the damage appeared to be limited to the facilities.”

  A woman in her 60s was found dead just before 8 p.m. Tuesday outside an apartment building on Secatogue Avenue in Farmingdale, near the LIRR station, officials said.

  A police spokeswoman would not say how the woman was killed but witnesses said she appeared to be the victim of a beheading. They told PIX11 News they originally believed the gruesome scene was a Halloween prank.”

Chuck Lane NBC Created Chelsea's Job

 

 

 

” Last week, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at a campaign rally for Democrat Martha Coakley and told her liberal audience “don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.”

  On Monday night, the entire panel on Fox News’ Special Report w/ Bret Baier eagerly mocked Ms. Clinton’s comments with Chuck Lane of the Washington Post joking that he “thought NBC created a job for Chelsea so there is at least one corporation that has created a job.”

  Earlier in the segment, the Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley profoundly condemned Ms. Clinton’s comments:

  This was a clumsy attempt to critique supply side economics which this country is no danger of returning to under President Obama. What we need is a critique of Keynesian economics. That’s what we’ve been experiencing. Government spending as a stimulus. How is that going for us? The slowest recovery in a generation or two. That’s what I would like it hear her defense of. 

  After Riley pointed out that America needed to reevaluate Keynesian economics being pushed by Democrats like Hillary Clinton and President Obama, Chuck Lane piled on Ms. Clinton one final time:  

  But, she has made quite a few gaffes now since this unofficial presidential campaign has gotten underway. And this one is going to have legs. Because you can put it into a little sound bite. You can turn it into an ad for the opposition and you can repeat it over and over and over again. And it’s obviously not a sensible comment because she herself had to walk it back. “
