The Increasing Instability of Obamacare – National Review

United Healthcare’s announcement that it is pulling out of most of the exchanges established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – a.k.a. Obamacare – is one of many indications of the law’s continuing instability.

United made this decision for obvious reasons: It was losing too much money, with no prospect of a quick turnaround. The company reported that it lost $475 million on plans sold in the ACA’s exchanges in 2015 and expects to lose another $650 million in 2016…

Rape Trees, Dead Migrants And The Consequences Of An Open Border – Breitbart

Many of the most caring people in the U.S. think they are helping the poor from Latin America by leaving our Southwest border wide open between ports-of-entry, but they are not. Several of the transnational criminal organizations (cartels) operating in Central America and Mexico make an estimated one-third or more of their profits from illegal immigration. Specifically, two groups below Texas, the Gulf and Los Zetas cartels, are largely fueled by the trafficking and smuggling of human beings.

The brutality of these criminal groups, from incinerating innocents in a network of ovens to their near complete control of state and local governments, is largely paid for by funds generated from illegal immigration – a shadowy economic engine that is only possible because we refuse to properly secure our border with Mexico….

Nebraska Abolishes Civil Forfeiture – Daily Signal

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, a Republican, has signed a major state forfeiture bill into law. Like New Mexico before it, the Cornhusker State now requires a criminal conviction before property can be forfeited.

Civil forfeiture is the law enforcement tool, which allows property suspected of being involved in, or derived from, criminal activity to be seized by police, sheriffs, and federal agents. It was ramped up in the 1980’s as a means of combatting the drug trade and organized crime, with the goal of stripping kingpins of their assets and ill-gotten gains.

Thirty years later, though, forfeiture has morphed into a system that is far more often used to seize relatively small amounts of cash, that stacks the deck against property owners fighting to get it back, and that encourages profiteering by law enforcement authorities….

Solar Developer SunEdison In Bankruptcy As Aggressive Growth Plan Unravels – Reuters

SunEdison Inc SUNE.N, once the fastest-growing U.S. renewable energy company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Thursday after a short-lived but aggressive binge of debt-fueled acquisitions proved unsustainable.

In its bankruptcy filing, the company said it had assets of $20.7 billion and liabilities of $16.1 billion as of Sept. 30.

SunEdison’s two publicly traded subsidiaries, TerraForm Power Inc (TERP.O) and TerraForm Global Inc (GLBL.O), are not part of the bankruptcy.

Migrants Pretending To Be Teens Rape 12-Year-Old Boy At Swedish Refugee Center – Record Attack On Cell Phone

Two Migrants Pretending To Be Teens Rape 12-Year-Old Boy At Refugee Center In Sweden – Gateway Pundit

Two migrants were arrested for raping a twelve-year-old boy at a housing center for unaccompanied migrants in Sweden. The men said they were 15 but social media shows they were born in 1997 and 1971.

.

.
Muslim migrants will cost Sweden fourteen times more than the country’s defense budget.

Authorities say their dental records show they are much older than they claim to be.

The men raped the child and recorded the attack on a cellphone.

The Daily Mail reported:
.
Two migrants accused of raping a 12-year-old refugee at a housing centre for unaccompanied minors in Sweden lied about their age, claiming to be 15.

The men reportedly attacked the boy at the centre in Alvesta, Smaland, and are said to have filmed the sexual assault on a mobile phone.

Despite claiming to be 15 and 16 when applying for asylum in Sweden, the two alleged attackers have now been found to be over 18 after undergoing a dental age assessment, a prosecutor said.

Prosecutor Emma Berge also produced screen grabs of the accused’s Facebook pages where one of them claims to be born in 1997, and the other in 1971.

One of the men also writes on the social network that he has previously worked as a mechanic in Dubai.

Ms Berge says that she is not claiming that the man is 45, but that he is over 18.

‘A dental examination with an age assessment had been made by the National Board of Forensic Medicine, and then there is information from Facebook and similar sources,’ Ms Berhge told Expressen.

‘And then you also have to look at their appearance and how they are perceived.’

The alleged attack took place at a government-provided housing centre for underaged unaccompanied migrants and refugees in Alvesta, Smaland county.

The housing is meant to be for minors in their late teens, but despite the alleged victim only being 12 years old, he was placed at the home.

The alleged rape is said to have taken place outside, near the housing, in the beginning of January, Expressen reports.

The boy is said to have been beaten and then raped, first by one of the men, and then by the other.

The first rape was allegedly filmed by one of the men, and sent over to the second suspect’s mobile phone.

Muslim Rape ‘Misunderstandings’ Come To Europe (Daniel Greenfield)

Muslim Rape ‘Misunderstandings’ Come To Europe – Daniel Greenfield

.

.
After Muslim terrorist attacks, we’re told that the killers just “misunderstood” their religion. They misunderstood the peaceful nature of Koranic verses such as “Kill them wherever you find them”, “They should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides” and “Strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”.

But the misunderstandings of Islam are just getting started.

Not only are Americans and Europeans being murdered by Muslim terrorists due to these unfortunate misunderstandings, but European girls are being raped because of more misunderstandings.

The principal of Wilhelm-Diess-Gymnasium was concerned about his female students. So he sent a letter warning their parents that the Muslim refugees who had been put up next to the school gym “are marked by their own culture”. And now Germans were being “marked” by their culture.

Girls were told to wear “modest clothing” to avoid “misunderstandings”. But rape isn’t a “misunderstanding”. The only misunderstanding is the politically correct leftist idea that the rapist should be excused on account of his culture and religion.

The Koran states, “O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies that they may thus be distinguished and not molested.”

The obvious implication is that women who aren’t dressed in a Burka may be “molested”.

Or as the commentary states, “It is more likely that this way they may be recognized (as pious, free women), and may not be hurt (considered by mistake as roving slave girls.)”

The Muslim migrants who have invaded Germany just might “misunderstand” and mistake the teen girls going to the gym as “roving slave girls”. And under Islamic law, that’s what they are. Islamic law permits Muslim men to rape even married infidel women in the Dar al-Harb. Let alone unaccompanied girls.

Unfortunately the misunderstandings are well underway in Germany. A letter about an asylum camp in Germany warns of a “culture of rape and violence” with “numerous rapes, sexual assaults” and “forced prostitution”. Even though the women in the camp are likely to be mostly fellow Muslims, who are well acquainted with the means of avoiding “misunderstandings” with a Muslim man (wear a hijab, wear a burka, never make eye contact, never smile), the misunderstandings still keep taking place.

On a large scale.

Because there was never any misunderstanding. As the letter points out, these men “regard women as their inferiors and treat unaccompanied women as ‘fair game’”.

The misunderstanding here isn’t on the part of the Muslim men who view women as fair game. When a mugger snatches a purse or a burglar breaks into a home, he isn’t the victim of a “misunderstanding”.

He just happens to have a different ethical code than the society he is victimizing. But these rapists are members of a society where rape is a crime for a woman, not for a man. The only misunderstanding here is on the part of the Westerners who allowed them in to commit their cultural crimes.

Muslim sexual offenders have used “misunderstandings” due to “cultural differences” as their defense.

Esmatullah Sharifi, an Afghan refugee, repeatedly raped Australian women and claimed that he was confused about consent due to “cultural differences”. Almahde Ahmad Atagore, a Libyan Muslim, sexually assaulted girls as young as 13. The judge told him, he was “very ill prepared to deal with cultural differences”. But it was really his victims who were ill prepared to deal with his “cultural differences”.

The Pakistani rapists who went after eighteen women and girls claimed that they could rape a girl because “she was not related to us” and “she was not wearing any headscarf”. Their Grand Mufti agreed, saying, “It’s 90 per cent the women’s responsibility.”

“If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park or in the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat?” the Grand Mufti asked. “The uncovered meat is the problem.”

But if you get rid of the feral cats that show up in civilized countries, scratching at the door to be let in, the problem goes away. If the Grand Mufti and his favorite rapists were picked up by animal control, put in the pound, neutered and then released back into the wild that they came from, that would be it.

Germany has decided to take in huge numbers of Muslim men who come from a religion and culture where a woman who isn’t wearing a Hijab and isn’t escorted by a man can be raped.

And that leads to “misunderstandings” between the invaders and the native population.

In the UK, these “misunderstandings” have already led to over 2,000 children being victimized by the Muslim “misunderstanders” of such finer points of British law as the definition of pedophilia.

As Gatestone’s Soeren Kern documents, the tide of “misunderstandings” has reached Germany. A 16-year-old girl was raped on September 11 by an unidentified “dark-skinned man speaking broken German” near a refugee shelter. Parents were told not to let their children out unaccompanied.

This is just one of a long list of Muslim “misunderstandings” that have already taken place in Germany.

Over the summer, some of the “misunderstandings” included five Turks trying to rape a girl, a 14-year-old boy being raped in a train bathroom and a seven-year-old girl being raped in a park.

That last “misunderstanding” happened in the Park of the Victims of Fascism where the misunderstander lured the little girl away from her mother at the playground and into the bushes. It was a cultural difference. Her age was the same as that of Aisha, Mohammed’s wife.

In the Park of the Victims of Fascism, the little girl became the victim of the latest incarnation of fascism; Islamofascism.

Islamofascism is represented equally by Merkel and the Muslim migrants. While Merkel enforces the Islamic colonization of Europe, the Muslim migrants carry it out. And perhaps one day there will be a park dedicated to the victims of this mass invasion. And perhaps that little girl’s name will be there.

If we don’t do something about all these “misunderstandings” whose nature we keep misunderstanding.

The “refugees” are mostly migrants. They are not coming to be part of any country, but to exploit it and then conquer it and rule it. They are not bound by any moral or ethical code that we understand.

Their advocates talk about “human rights”, but in Muslim culture there is no such thing as human rights. Their cultures are tribal. There are no universal rights, only responsibilities to members of kin groups. When those kin groups remain intact, then members will prey exclusively on outsiders. When they fall apart, as they do during immigration and migration, then mass rapes and murders take place.

Europeans believe in human rights. Muslims do not. Europeans believe women are equal. Muslims do not.

This is the underlying “misunderstanding” and this is what must be understood. Either Europe will end Muslim migration or surrender to the cultural difference of an Islamic society in which women are not allowed to walk the streets because they are property.

It’s time to clear up these misunderstandings.

Europe can either have free women, bars, churches, synagogues, cartoons, free speech, pork sausage and beer. Or it can have millions of Muslim migrants and their wide-eyed toddlers.

It can’t have both. Not for long. Because there will be “misunderstandings”.

Bombs will go off, women will be raped and cartoonists murdered. And we will be told to change our behavior to avoid more of these “misunderstandings”. After each “misunderstanding”, we will lose more of our civil rights and the invaders will have more power to dictate our behavior and our way of life.

Until finally the only way to end all these “misunderstandings” will be a submission to the Islamic State. We may finally understand then, but it will be too late.

Muslim migrants don’t misunderstand our laws or values. They don’t care about them. We misunderstand theirs. And so we do our best to accommodate their contempt for our values.

It’s time that we understood this cycle of submission and showed the invaders that they misunderstood our generosity as appeasement, our friendliness as weakness and our tolerance as surrender.

And then we can finally bring all these “misunderstandings” to an end.

Planned Parenthood Counselor Intentionally Misclassified Rape By A Teen Sexual Predator As Consensual Sex

Planned Parenthood Counselor ‘Intentionally Misclassified Rape By A Teen Sexual Predator As Consensual To Avoid The Hassle Of Reporting It’ – Daily Mail

.
………………….

.
A Planned Parenthood counselor intentionally noted a rape by an allegedly prolific teen sexual predator as consensual to avoid the ‘hassle’ of reporting it, according to a police report.

The encounter allegedly involved Tyler Kost, 18, from San Tan Valley, Arizona, who has been charged with sexually assaulting 11 girls between October 2009 and April 2014 – although cops believe he may have attacked as many as 18.

One of his alleged victims was a 15-year-old girl who became pregnant following the assault and when she underwent an abortion through Planned Parenthood last December, her mother told a member of staff about the attack, FoxNews.com reported.

‘The counselor intentionally miscoded the assault as a consensual encounter,’ a police report states.

‘The counselor told them that they did not want the hassle of having to report the assault to law enforcement as they were a mandatory reporter.’

Planned Parenthood Arizona told Fox they have contacted the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department and said, if the allegations are true, it would be a ‘serious violation’ of its policies.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu added that he was ‘troubled’ by the allegations about Planned Parenthood and said they had been forwarded to state officials by the victim’s mother.

‘If this is true, they should absolutely be held accountable,’ he said.

Kost has been indicted on nearly 30 felony counts, including multiple counts of sexual assault with a minor, sexual abuse with a minor and sexual conduct with a minor. He also faces a count of child molestation.

Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles said the victims in the crimes alleged in the indictment issued Wednesday ranged from 12 to 17 years old.

Voyles said the offenses – which involved victims that Kost dated or knew – occurred between October 2009 and April 2014 meaning that Kost was 13 when the first offense allegedly took place.

But Voyles plans to try him as an adult on all charges.

‘In Arizona, once an individual turns 18, we don’t have a choice,’ Voyles said. ‘[State law] makes it fairly clear.’

Kost, a senior at Poston Butte High School, would face between 147 and nearly 334 years in prison if convicted of all the charges in the indictment, the prosecutor said.

Pinal County sheriff’s deputies arrested Kost two weeks ago, accusing him of being a serial sex predator who assaulted at least 18 students.

But Voyles said he could not comment on why the indictment accused Kost of crimes involving only 11 victims.

Babeu said the baby-faced Kost threatened and harassed victims to such an extent that two fled the state, and one attempted suicide.

‘This is a serious and serial sex offender and rapist,’ Babeu said.

The investigation was initiated after the Sheriff’s Office received a call March 25 from someone reporting that Kost had sexually abused and molested five teenage girls.

According to the indictment, none of the alleged sexual assaults occurred on a school campus.

Kost is accused of abusing the victims in his bedroom, in a parked car, a park and out in the desert.

In one case, Kost threatened, harassed and told one of the victims to kill herself, deputies said. The girl followed through and attempted suicide, but survived and was hospitalized.

While in the hospital, she allegedly got a message from Kost threatening that if she returned to school he would ‘make her life a living hell.’

In another case, a girl became pregnant after she was allegedly raped by Kost and ended up getting an abortion, the station KPHO reported.

‘He would assault these young female victims in their own bedrooms, in his bedroom, in the desert, at a community pool, at community parks,’ Babeu said.

Detectives said because he looked young and innocent, many people didn’t perceive him as a threat. His alleged victims included girls he had dated.

He was first jailed April 28 in connection with sex crimes against one victim and re-arrested three days later as sheriff’s investigators tied additional victims to the case.

Kost is scheduled to be arraigned on May 16.

Report: Aborted Baby Parts Being Used To Grow Human Organs In Rodents – Big Government

Medical researchers are growing human organs in mice by implanting dead human baby organs into rodents, a practice that stands to gain greater scrutiny in light of undercover videos exposing what appears to be Planned Parenthood affiliates selling aborted baby parts to medical procurement companies like StemExpress.

In a fourth video released from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), Planned Parenthood personnel can be seen sifting through aborted baby parts allegedly to show what parts can be salvaged and sold.

These mice or rats are created by removing a human organ such as a kidney from a dead human baby and implanting it into a mouse or rat for the purpose of medical research.

As reported in Live Science, Duke University medical student Eugene Gu co-authored a study released in January in which he said, “Our long-term goal is to grow human organs in animals, to end the human donor shortage.” According to the report, Gu is also founder and CEO of Redwood, California biotech company Ganogen, Inc.

“In the new study, Gu and his colleagues obtained human fetal kidneys from StemExpress, a Placerville, California-based company that supplies researchers with tissue from deceased adults and fetuses,” reported Live Science in January. Gu contends that the mothers consented to donation, and scientists were separated from the “donation process.”

StemExpress is a primary buyer of baby parts from Planned Parenthood as noted in a Breitbart News article on the details of a fifth CMP video that was released Tuesday.

Ramesh Akkina of the University of Colorado published on the “future prospects” for a “new generation” of research in January 2013. An abstract for that publication detailed that one model “is prepared by transplantation of human fetal liver, thymus and HSC.”

In Gu’s study, fetal kidneys were transplanted into rats that lacked immune systems in order to keep the organs from being rejected, according to Live Science. Researchers have also attempted transplanting fetal hearts.

CEO and founder of StemExpress, Cate Dyer, claimed that all donors consent to donating the aborted baby parts, according to Live Science. Questions have arisen, however, over whether the mothers donating are truly “informed” as required under parameters for organ donation. Live Science reported that Dyer assured that mothers were not compensated for their donation.

While the mothers may not be receiving direct compensation, the undercover investigative videos documenting Planned Parenthood affiliates show what appears to be financial dealings between these abortion providers and medical waste procurement dealers such as StemExpress.

Ethical questions over these experiments have also arisen over creating a potential incentive to induce a pregnant woman to choose abortion.

After Center for Medical Progress videos began hitting the media, StemExpress promptly acquired a restraining order against CMP regarding further release of videos that involve StemExpress.

CMP released the fifth undercover video Tuesday in which a Planned Parenthood research director appears speaking with undercover investigators about selling whole intact aborted babies for resale to medical researchers.

New Hampshire Defunds Planned Parenthood, Rejects $600,000 Contract – Weasel Zipppers

Let’s go state by state, if Feds wouldn’t act.

Via Daily Caller:

New Hampshire legislators stripped the state’s six Planned Parenthood clinics of state funds Wednesday, deleting roughly one third of their public funding.

The state’s Republican-led Executive Council rejected a $639,000 funding contract with Planned Parenthood, reported local ABC affiliate WMUR9. The Council cited a series of undercover videos in the meeting, which show top Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and participating in the harvesting, dissection, and distribution of aborted fetuses. (RELATED: See How The Research Sausage Is Made In Latest Planned Parenthood Video)

The Center for Medical Progress plans to release more footage, and has alleged Planned Parenthood is illegally selling the aborted baby parts for profit. But Planned Parenthood maintains the fees it charges are legally legitimate and that they do not profit from the exchange. (RELATED: Planned Parenthood Allegations Turn On Squishy McConnell-Backed Law)

The New Hampshire Council told Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan the state should launch an investigation into local Planned Parenthood clinics, but the Attorney General’s office told WMUR9 it’s not pursuing the matter.

Planned Parenthood Failed To Report Abortion They Performed On 13-Year-Old Rape Victim, Then Returned Her To Her Abuser

Planned Parenthood Performed Abortion On 13 Yr Sex Abuse Victim Without Notifying Parents, Returned Her To Her Abuser – Weasel Zippers

.
…….

.
Evil.

Via Washington Times:

DENVER | Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains was hit with a complaint Wednesday for performing an abortion on a 13-year-old girl without reporting possible sexual abuse against the underage girl and returning her to the man who abused her.

The conservative Alliance Defending Freedom filed a complaint with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Affairs against the Planned Parenthood affiliate on behalf of the pro-life Colorado Family Action.

A lawsuit filed against Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains and four unidentified employees on behalf of the girl was settled earlier this year.

Natalie L. Decker, ADF legal counsel, said that, “Colorado authorities should hold Planned Parenthood and its employees accountable.”

“Failing to report the sexual abuse of a minor is horrifically tragic and illegal,” said Ms. Decker in a statement. “Planned Parenthood has repeatedly shown brazen and appalling disregard for the law, including laws designed to protect children from this kind of damaging physical and emotional abuse.”

The complaint comes with the Denver-based Planned Parenthood affiliate reeling from an undercover video released Tuesday by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress showing Dr. Savita Ginde discussing how to maximize fetal tissue from abortions.

Planned Parenthood Changes Story On Website Being “Hacked” To Just “Undergoing Maintenance” – Weasel Zippers

.

.
Update to this story:.

Via Washington Examiner:

Planned Parenthood proclaimed on Thursday that its websites were “not available because of an extremist attack,” but seemed to change its story throughout the day after many people pointed to inconsistencies about the alleged hack.

At around noon, the message on the group’s homepage was changed to read that “our normal site is currently undergoing maintenance.”

At the start of the day, Planned Parenthood claimed it was the victim of a cyberattack. “200,000 people a day are now being blocked from information and care by the attack,” the first iteration on the PlannedParenthood.org site said. But many noted on Twitter that it didn’t look like a regular attack, as the homepage still seemed to be controlled by the group, and included links to parts of the group’s website.

Viewed Thursday morning, the source code for the page indicated it was a page put up in response to a cyberattack, and the site asked users to donate to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the political action fundraising wing of the abortion giant. […]

Later Thursday, the original message was taken down and replaced with a note that made no mention of the hack at all. “Our normal site is currently undergoing maintenance,” it said. “Below you will find information to help you find a Planned Parenthood health center, book an appointment, and get involved with Planned Parenthood.” Instead of redirecting users to another page on the site, the button now provides a phone number for donations.

10 States Respond To Leftist Claims Of College Rape Epidemic With Push To Legalize Guns On Campuses

10 States Want To Permit Guns On Campus To Stop Rape – Sweetness & Light

.

From the New York Times:

A Bid for Guns on Campuses to Deter Rape

By ALAN SCHWARZ | February 18, 2015

As gun rights advocates push to legalize firearms on college campuses, an argument is taking shape: Arming female students will help reduce sexual assaults… [L]awmakers in 10 states who are pushing bills that would permit the carrying of firearms on campus are hoping that the national spotlight on sexual assault will help them win passage of their measures. “If you’ve got a person that’s raped because you wouldn’t let them carry a firearm to defend themselves, I think you’re responsible,” State Representative Dennis K. Baxley of Florida said during debate in a House subcommittee last month. The bill passed.

Talk about being hoisted on your own canard [sic]. This is the kind of jujitsu that conservatives should do more often.

The sponsor of a bill in Nevada, Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, said in a telephone interview: “If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them. The sexual assaults that are occurring would go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head.”

“Hot little girls”? That isn’t very PC. Ms. Fiore must not be a card-carrying feminist. Therefore her opinions on such matters are meaningless – even mockable.

In addition to those in Florida and Nevada, bills that would allow guns on campus have been introduced in Indiana, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming.

So only red (neck) states really want to protect young women? How telling.

Opponents contend that university campuses should remain havens from the gun-related risks that exist elsewhere, and that college students, with high rates of binge drinking and other recklessness, would be particularly prone to gun accidents.

And yet we let them vote.

Some experts in sexual assault said that college women were typically assaulted by someone they knew, sometimes a friend, so even if they had access to their gun, they would rarely be tempted to use it…

Huh? Then it doesn’t sound like rape rape. (To quote the political sage, Whoopie Goldberg.)

Other objectors to the bills say that advocates of the campus carry laws, predominantly Republicans with well-established pro-gun stances, are merely exploiting a hot-button issue. “The gun lobby has seized on this tactic, this subject of sexual assault,” said Andy Pelosi, the executive director of the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus. “It resonates with lawmakers.” …

How dare conservatives seize upon a made up crisis to advance their agenda? Only Democrats are allowed to do that.
