He said the U.S. would allow "no games, no room for avoidance, or anything less than full compliance."

Russia and Syria just tested ObamaCo. ObamaCo just failed the test.

Missed 'deadlines' DO TELL!!!
BTW, Emperor Vlad I will be coronated again in 2018 as Tsar of all the Russias, quelle surprise.

"ObamaCo just failed the test."

Putin-Assad KNEW that.. . they just wanted a laugh at the nonsense the Obamaniacs would come up with. "Never said it was a hard and fast..." pffft...pitiful excuse even by Obummer standards.

maryrose

This administration doe not know the meaning of a deadline. 50% of the Helathcare law deadlines have been missed. Important pieces are not in place. I felt encouraged learning that the Oct.1 deadline is like an anvil over their heads. I do have a lot of popcorn ACT brand is on sale} and loads of butter. The next couple of weeks will be very entertaining.What questions did Trey Gowdy have for our lying losers from Bammyland?

Ranger

Oh, and now we have another "deadline":

Kerry: UN must act on Syria next week

To which I am sure Vlad will laugh and ask, or what?

What's the difference between a red line and a dead line?

A red line is an oral empty threat while a deadline is a written one?

And now from Mel something to persuade you to gird your loins and march on the capitalhttp://washingtonexaminer.com/republicans-think-labor-department-has-secret-obamacare-fix-for-unions/article/2536020

NK(tryin' again)

A NEW deadline, or Redline, or .... whatevah.
This is now parody of the old Robin Williams schtick about Crazy Khadaffie's Gulf of Sidra 'Line of Death', which was eventually crossed by the USS John F Kennedy, 2 Libyan SU-27s bought the farm over that. Now 28 years later it's the USA drawing repeated backtracking 'lines'. Just disgusting-- Tsar Putin is laughing his royal ass off.

Porchlight

Of course there is a labor fix in the works. The unions are not going to display this faux pushback for nothing.

NK(tryin' again)

Union Fix?-- absolutely.

maryrose

If unions get a fix all hell will break loose.
I honestly think we need to only wait a few weeks and watch this turkey unravel bit by bit. These waivers and exemptions cry to heaven. Why should we the people comply when everyone else gets a free ride? I can't wait for the mandatory tax rule to go into effect and the subsequent lawsuits to commence.

maryrose

Manufactured character assasinations of Stevens and DeLay. These are the kinds of people we are dealing with in the dem party. Plame kerfuffle where an innocent person Libby is convicted. We need to get down and dirty with these people. Funny, the dems wear clean togas when dealing with Putin and Assad.

NK(tryin' again)

The good news about the Union Fix being in is that it gives a big opportunity to attack ObummerCare in court again on equal protection grounds-- Justice Roberts held ObummerCare is a tax law-- how can it be interpreted to give BILLIONs of subsidies to one politically favored group while the rest of us get squat. What's Obummer gonna say to the SCOTUS about the Union Fix-- 'they'll break my legs'.

The Dems probably had to go listen to some citizens from other countries in our nation ILLEGALLY whine about something.

4JIB2

What will the masses do about it, if the unions get a fix. IMHO, zero. Nilch, Nada. Nothing.

There is nothing outside the 2010 Tea Party success, Wisconsin and Colorado recall that demonstrates that a "national" uproar can be produced. All those cases were localized even the Tea party success.

Heard Tom Delay on Hannity when driving today. Evidently, not only was the case thrown out but the judge wrote it should have never be brought. Appears that Delay has a damn good case for prosecutorial misconduct and noted that Earle went Grand Jury shopping before he could find one in the People's Republic of Austin to do the dirty on poor old Tom. But he was in good humor and also noted how Bob Dole sabotaged the 96 Govt. shutdown and that Clinton admitted in his book that if it had gone one more day he would have caved.

Pretty good interview if you can find it, listen to it.

Hillary's Bi? I thought she was strictly lesbian.

Yeah, who the hell is she Bi with?

Annoying Old Guy

JIB;

Completely off topic, but earlier you mentioned Frederich being a big Roman mythology fan. You might check out the "Orphans of Chaos" trilogy by John C. Wright. Almost every character is from Greek / Roman mythology (although you don't realize that till well in to the first book). It does have some mature content, though. It's a sci fi action / adventure romp that doesn't take it self too seriously.

Clarice

Cross posted: am trying to think about Republican strategies on Obamacare,,esp now that it appears the WH is working behind the scenes to add Big Labor to the list of exemptions. What about refusing to sign on to a CR that includes Obamacre unless every exemption is stripped from the law?

Any thoughts?

Old Lurker test

I'm sorry. The image of Hillary and sex with anything is just too disturbing.

Threadkiller

The republicans should not refuse anything.

Let the Union exemption play out...

4JIB2

AOG,

Thanks for the tip. Will look into it. At 10 he is a big Rick Riordan fan. Riordan like Jeff Kinney has mad millions by buying into where the kids are today and their interests/experiences.

If you don't know those names, you should since they sell more books than Joyce Carol Oates.

peter

I'm with you, Old lurker, that violates the 8th amendment

NK(tryin' again)

Clarice-- there are lots of targets of opportunity to atack in ObummerCare-- MediCaid eligibility expansion, religious conscience, special exemptions-- especially for Unions and Congress, all should be targeted... but as part of the Debt fight, not the CR.

NK(tryin' again)

OL-- I understand your revulsion, but treat it like a nature show, like "Wild Kingdom"-- Narrator: here we see the HildaBeast commencing the mating ritual with the doorknob..." Something like that, all scientific like.

Account Deleted

Clarice,

I'd go with income and identity verification prior to allowing disbursement of any subsidy money. That's where the initial fraud will occur and that's where BOzo intends to continue his reparations project.

NK(tryin' again)

RickB-- excellent notion on subsidy vetting... that would be particularly popular with Indy voters. Let's see Obummer opposes ID check to vote, and income checks for subsidy money... ya think the LIVs would catch on that he's a community organizer scam artist in a $4000 suit?

Clarice

That's something I'd add to the pot, Rick--it's good, but demanding the exemptions be stripped out--and reports are that there's in the works a plan to also exempt labor unions now--will allow the Republicans to make their case fo the unfair cronyism aspect of this "tax".

MarkO

I thought I saw that Assad had asked the UN to monitor a ceasefire now that the war had stalemated.

That would put Obama out of business in Syria and keep Assad in power backed by the UN.

Obama and Kerry. DOOM.

MarkO

If you can't defund because you haven't the votes, how do you do anything legislatively?

That leaves only one other branch of government. As I said on the other thread, we can't count on our 5-4 majority in the SC. Or was that 4-5?

The insidious infusion of nationalized health care will force out other means. Time is not on our side.

Account Deleted

Clarice,

I'm inclined to let the union exemption fester. Demand it be stripped out but allow it in compromise for PhotoID verification coupled with EVerify for everyone claiming a subsidy.

After all, they've got the Million Jeantel OFA Navigator Army out there to help. Just remember not to speak cursive when asking questions.

MarkO

Here [another British scoop]:

If accepted by the armed opposition, a ceasefire would have to be kept "under international observation", which could be provided by monitors or UN peace-keepers – as long as they came from neutral or friendly countries, he said.

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but two federal appeals courts have ruled against the exemption of Christian corporations from Obamacare. The Left will litigate its way to victory every time by venue shopping and misleading cases.

Again, how do we do the squashing and defeating? I have yet to see a game plan on how to promote conservative principles but knocking down prof ones at the same time.

Talk is cheap.

From my short experience in DC, and then watching local politics in Florida, you have to get off the bench and play the game and play it hard. Door to door. Calling on the phone. Going outside to meet the LIV's and indies.

The republicans are only interested in raising money from you to go an play in the media market. There are no votes there.

The Tea Party had the right idea until it was neutered by the prog/dem machine alive as the DC public employee unions.

Janet

The Left will litigate its way to victory every time by venue shopping and misleading cases.

That is how the Dems win. Look at abortion or marriage. Marriage won in Calif. for heaven's sake....but the left took it to court.
Same in the pro-life world. We change hearts & minds...but even modest regulations get knocked back by courts.

If you're dumb enough to believe that any of this is going to happen (i.e. Assad comply with the terms of the deal, or Russia force Assad to comply, or the Bamster will use force), well then I've got a load of pre-owned buffalo chips to sell you. In fact pre owned Buffalo Chips is what the Bamster has been feeding all of us for several years now.

Then --with no agreement between the two houses of Congress, let Obama say he wants to keep cheating provisions and cronyism more than he wants to get funs to keep the got going.

That's how you do it.

pinkman's 5:31 link to the State dept. briefing is a reminder as to why we are DOOMED. If anyone can read the transcript and leave proud as hell of their country and their State department needs a lobotomy.

We really are not a serious country or political system. Listen to the Carneys, Harfs and others of this regime is like what it must have been to listen to Hitler and Stalin. I'll bet Assad and Putin only wished they had such silver tongued liars.

Clarice,

I'm all for the symbolic and politically important actions in both houses. In fact, I lean toward the Obamacare gambit. But, we should not expect anything to happen until we change the personnel.

The pissing your pants argument is one that predicts the other moves will not result in better elections. I have no idea. I yield to you on that.

"Members of the Capitol Police's highly trained Containment and Emergency Response Team (Cert) are typically debriefed "right away, at the very least the following day" following an incident, another Capitol Police source said.

They haven't been given the courtesy of a debrief”

Capitol Police source
But four days after Monday's shooting, the officers have yet to be questioned by the department or any member of a Capitol Police Board "Fact Review Team", which was convened on Wednesday to investigate the incident.

"[They] haven't even been given the courtesy of a debrief… They have not even been given an answer as to why the decision was made that they should not respond," a source said.

Four Cert team members wearing full tactical gear and armed with HK-416 assault weapons arrived on scene at 08:36 (12:36 GMT), soon after reports of an active gunman within the Naval Sea Systems Command surfaced at 08:20.

Another interesting thing, from this monograph, is that Damascus has never been an Alawite stronghold, hence it's not surprising
there was friction, in various corners of the
city.

Ranger

Well, given that the FSA and the Jihadis are not in open combat with each other, a ceasefire it a win/win for Assad. He gets time to rest and refit his troops, and he can sit back and watch the rebels beat the carp out of each other. Then he can move in and finish off who ever survives their fight.

Well there have been recent clashes between those factions, in places like Aleppo, and Azaz, their primary sponsors are divided in their loyalties,

Russia 'seizes' Greenpeace ship after Arctic rig protest

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24170129

Greenpeace says 29 activists, including six Britons, are being held at gunpoint by Russian security officers who stormed the group's ship in the Arctic.

One of the activists told the BBC that about 15 men in balaclavas seized the Arctic Sunrise ship in the Barents Sea.

This comes a day after four Greenpeace members tried to board a Russian oil platform to prevent it from drilling.

Still not quite up to the French standard for dealing with this sort of thing, but a decent start.
