“Today, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law, after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law, after multiple challenges to this law before the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to say,” President Obama said on Thursday after the Supreme Court upheld the state subsidies provision in the Affordable Care Act. In other words, time for Republicans to give up the fight against the health law.

But appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, Rep. Paul Ryan seemed unfazed.

Ryan said the current law is not fixable, and, citing the rationing of Medicare, denial of choice, double-digit annual increases in premiums, and the consolidation of insurance companies, he argued that the country won’t stand for it.

“This law’s going to collapse under its own weight,” he said. “I am as motivated as ever before to repeal and replace this law, and that’s what we’re working on.”
Ryan told host John Dickerson that, despite media reports to the contrary, the GOP has plenty of ideas for legitimate replacements to the law, something that he plans to move forward on in 2017 if a Republican is elected president.
“There are a number of alternative ObamaCare bills out there right now, in Congress. So I just disagree with that notion,” said Paul, who was the GOP vice presidential nominee in 2012.
“In 2016, we need to show the country what exactly we would replace this law with, so that when we win the election in 2016, we will have the ability to do it in 2017,” he continued, encouraging GOP presidential candidates to talk at length about what they want to do to replace ObamaCare with a system that works better.
As of early June, support for the law stood at a mere 39 percent, which ties an all-time low, last hit in April of 2012.

US officials warn of Islamic State July 4 attacks
“It will be big. We will hit the kuffar (unbelievers) hard InshAllah.” Not that this has anything to do with Islam, as everyone from Obama to Cameron to Tony Abbott tell us. Can the West survive this refusal to face reality? “US Officials Warn of ISIS Attacks on July 4,” by Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu, Jewish Press, […]

Finally, hundreds of cabbies ticketed for shutting down NYC streets during Ramadan

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

People have written me for years about how NYC Muslim cabbies shut down these streets and police do nothing. Under both de Blasio and Bloomberg as well. But if you jaywalk, deBlasio sics the cops on you.

I have been reporting on this repeatedly: NYC Traffic Snarled By Muslim Cabbies Stopping To Pray

Finally. Equality for all before the law. But that’s not how Muslims see it — it is seen through their supremacist prism:
“I can’t help but to think they are being prejudiced. They don’t understand. We have to be here.”
Uh, no, you have to obey the law just like everyone else.

So why have Muslims gotten a free pass all this time? And why ticket now? Because the threat of Islamic terrorism in this city is so great and...

Three Issues Soon to be Decided...Part 3 of 3
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on CPR Worldwide Media 

"The intent of everybody here -- the P5+1, the European Union, Iran -- is to stay until we get this done, or find out we can't. And our intent is to get it done." 
 - Words of an unnamed U.S. official in regards to reaching a deal with Iran by the now extended June 30th deadline.

In part 1 of this 3 part series, I discussed what was still at that time the upcoming SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage (and the High Court has now upheld same-sex marriage in all 50 states); in part 2, I discussed how we were blindsided by the SCOTUS decision coming down in support of the anything but Affordable Care Act...aka ObamaCare; and now in the part 3, I will discuss the officially extended June 30th deadline for what is being called 'a few more days'...or if we walk away from the we rightfully should...but most likely will NOT.

And so if this final accord between Iran and the P5+1 goes through, Barack HUSSEIN Obama will agree to a very questionable and oh so 'complex' 40-50 page long plus appendices agreement that will NOT keep Iran's nuclear ambitions in check, but will actually enable Iran to become a nuclear power...that is if they aren't already one...albeit one currently without a dependable delivery system. But North Korea and China...the very same China that is a member of the P5+1...are working to remedy that even as I write this...and do NOT let anyone try to fool you otherwise.

Still to be worked out...that is if we believe the scuttle-but being released by the an exact timetable for sanctions relief; the actual disarmament steps by which Iran must rid itself of its current uranium stockpile; a binding promise to halt any and all future nuclear weapons research along with a halt to the development of newer and faster centrifuges; and also how possible violations by either side will be handled, including how UN sanctions might be reinstated if need be.

And know that sanctions relief is first and foremost Iran's main goal because said sanctions have choked Iran's economy and limited their access to world oil markets, but know that these sanctions are the one thing we can hold as leverage over Iran's head...that is if we were negotiating a 'real' deal and NOT a sellout to the enemy. A sellout that even has some of Obama's former military and foreign policy advisers outwardly voicing major disapproval over certain terms that seem to have already been 'secretly' reached ahead of the now extended deadline.

"The agreement will not prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapons capability," said a letter signed by former CIA Director David Petraeus, former White House Iran advisor Dennis Ross, former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. James Cartwright, and others, who called for Obama...but were as to be expected met with 'so-called' deaf NOT only take an even harder stance on lifting sanctions, but to include in the actual wording of any deal reached that NO sanctions will be lifted until Iran completely complies with all terms of said deal. In fact, the letter also states that new sanctions should be prepared and ready to go ahead of time just in case Iran does NOT abide by the agreement...and we know that this would be the most likely scenario.

Now add into this very 'hot' mix that mere days before what was to be the June 30th deadline, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ...the ultimate arbiter of all matters concerning Iran's nuclear program...has reiterated what Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif''s deputy Abbas Araqchi recently said to the press about some of the 'solutions' found in the April 2nd Lausanne framework deal NO longer working because after Lausanne certain countries within the P5+1 have now made declarations of change in their position which he claims “complicates the task” at hand. 
And to that affect Khamenei has now made a series of demands...'red lines' of his to what will be the final terms he will have Iran agree to...with those terms being an 'immediate' end to all UN and U.S. economic sanctions thus allowing Iran to gain relief from billions of dollars in economic penalties; that Iranian military sites including ‘security and defensive’ sectors will NOT allow even 'managed access' to international inspections; that there will be NO long-term halt on nuclear research; and that NO IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) interviews with any persons having any connections to Iran’s nuclear program will be allowed...demands that are a direct 180 turn from the P5+1 'supposedly' non-negotiable demands that NO lifting of the sanctions will be done until after the IAEA confirms that Iran is abiding by the deal; that a lasting limitation of Iran’s nuclear capacities in research and production is agreed to; that a 'rigorous,' on-going, and unhindered inspection of military sites must be allowed; and that a mechanism to quickly reimpose sanctions is in place before they would sign on the dotted line.

So, in other words, whatever the P5+1 wants Iran has said NO to but as it stands now Obama... through his mouthpiece John 'Swiftboat' Kerry...will most likely say YES to.

And why...because Barack HUSSEIN Obama wants a deal signed at any cost, after all it's all about his immediate legacy and current agenda as we head into the 2016 election, but know that if this deal goes through with Iran having the upper hand that Obama's ultimate legacy will show that he led America to make a deal with the devil. And know that any agreement Obama makes with this rogue and oh so dangerous nation gives them legitimacy in the eyes of the world as it allows for a military dimension to be added into the Iranian claimed 'peaceful nuclear' mix, thus putting regional power into the hands of the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism (in fact a recently published U.S. State Department report on terror activity noted that Iran's “state sponsorship of terrorism worldwide remained undiminished”) and of human rights violations; it directly puts our ally Israel in the cross hairs; it strengthens the mullahs already all-consuming grip on power; and most importantly it affords Iran the chance to become a full-fledged, in-our-face, nuclear power...again if they are NOT already one. This is what Iran wants and make NO mistake this is also what Obama wants for he, like the Iranian regime, is an islamist at heart.

An islamist at heart proven time and again by Obama's concession after concession in his goal to reach an agreement NO matter how bad that agreement is for our country or for our allies. Starting with the sanctions...sanctions that should only be lifted after Iran has proven over time to be upholding their part of the has Obama acquiescing to lifting any sanctions NOT directly related to Iran’s nuclear program; continues with his doing away with the the requirement that Iran disclose all previous nuclear activity which means that IAEA inspectors cannot establish a true 'baseline' for future inspections; and ends with his suddenly but NOT unexpectedly vacillating on the P5+1 demand that inspections of military sites be done by the IAEA coupled with their having unlimited access to Iran's scientists. And these are all critical to both monitoring the agreement and to checking whether Iran is cheating by secretly pursuing an 'under the radar' nuclear weapons program...and again are all things Obama appears to be giving in on.

And so it becomes increasingly apparent that the words of Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, a former senior military intelligence advisor to Obama ring very true when he states that the deal being worked on “suffers from severe deficiencies as Iran has every intention to build a nuclear weapon.”

YES they do...Obama knows this but simply does NOT care. And to make this so-wanted farce of a deal even more grievous is the fact that now Obama wants to give Iran high-tech, light-water nuclear reactors...even as they continue marching through the streets of Tehran shouting “Death to America” and "Death to Israel." As per details in a leaked thus NO longer confidential document that is part of the appendices titled 'Civil Nuclear Cooperation,' Obama promises said reactors if Iran ceases operations at its almost completed heavy-water facility at Arak...and he's claiming that reducing...NOT eliminating...Arak's plutonium output was always one of the primary goals of the U.S. and its negotiating partners. But pray tell how does giving the enemy the very thing they need stop them from attaining their goal as it is quite easy to reconfigure light-water reactors into the nuclear needed heavy-water reactors...but Obama knows this and just does NOT care...of that I'm sure.

And so with the deadline for this farce of a deal being extended for 'a few more days' it becomes apparent that while Khamenei is holding fast to his demands that nuclear-research restrictions, delayed sanctions relief, and open inspections would be a deal killer, John 'Swiftboat' Kerry tap dances...on crutches...around the fact that with Obama's leaked promise to give nuclear reactors to America's enemy NO matter that the talks are but a 'dog and pony' show...NO matter if a 'real' deal is even reached...a spokesman for the Iranian delegation confirmed...a spokesman with his fingers crossed behind his back as in can you say taqiyya...that “because there is still lots of work to do the delegations will remain beyond...(July 1) to continue the negotiations and reach a good overall deal.”

And to that I say a good deal for Iran but a bad deal...a very bad deal...for the rest of the world. But what can you expect when a traitor occupies the White House, a traitor is America's head negotiator, and we have a lily-livered 'supposedly' Republican controlled Congress who while they still must approve any deal will assuredly cave into White House pressure as they are headed by the likes of RINOS John Boehner and Mitch McConnell...and to that sadly all I can do is sigh...
