Texas Judge Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional, Primary Issue Surrounds Individual Mandate, (ruling pdf included)…


U.S. District in Texas, Judge Reed O’Connor (Fort Worth) has agreed with a coalition of 19 states that Obamacare is structurally unconstitutional without an enforced federal mandate that requires individual participation. (full ruling pdf below)

Absent the enforcement of the individual mandate, Judge O’Conner ruled it was impossible for the Obamacare law to remain.  Texas and the 19 state coalition successfully argued they’ve been harmed by an increase in the number of people on state-funded insurance rolls.

The plaintiffs argued: when Congress repealed the tax penalty last year for the individual mandate; they eliminated the U.S. Supreme Court’s prior rationale for finding the ACA constitutional in 2012. The Texas judge agreed.

Judge O’Conner found it is clear the individual mandate is the linchpin of the law “without marching through every nook and cranny of the ACA’s 900-plus pages. The court must find the individual mandate inseverable from the ACA,” he said. “To find otherwise would be to introduce an entirely new regulatory scheme never intended by Congress or signed by the president.”

Here’s the ruling:

Germany’s Most Beautiful Policewoman Told to Be a Cop or a Model


One of the clear cultural differences between Europe and the United States is that they even have the “hottest” female police officer – Adrienne Koleszar. That is something they just would not do in the United States. We hold Senate hearings because Janet Jackson’s breast popped out on TV at the Super Bowl. It is interesting that from the outside looking in, America is viewed as being prudish, to put it mildly.  Yet Adrienne’s boss told her she had to choose between being a cop or a model.

I appeared in Dresden but the police who were there to keep the crowds in line certainly did not look like her. The people were very warm and they even handed me a bouquet of flowers at the end of my presentation. Never had that in any other city I have ever made a presentation.

Merkel Says Goodbye as Leader of CDU


Merkel said goodbye at the CDU meeting today. She intends to remain as Chancellor until 2021. However, the victor will be positioned to succeed Merkel as chancellor and influence whether she stays or bows out before her term ends in 2021. Although Merkel is widely known for her caution and changing positions with her internal poll team, she has been a shrewd disrupter of the German party system and has moved the CDU to the middle of the political spectrum. Her downfall has been her opening up Europe to all the pretend “refugees” that poured in from everywhere but Syria. The rushed into Europe for the welfare system with no requirement for skills or language. About 70% were just young males, not families with children as the press only photographed. That single decision has been the most destructive for the European project.

The frontrunners in this election today are Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is a Merkel protege and is seen as the continuity candidate who will change nothing, so the CDU would change the face but nothing else. Then there is Friedrich Merz, who has been a Merkel rival questioning the constitutional guarantee of asylum to all “politically persecuted” and believes Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, should contribute more to the European Union. These are very stake differences in policy but this is NOT a public election but politicians who decide. Party leadership is typically the springboard to the chancellorship so this is really a critical decision for the CDU

Woman Sent to Prison for 10 years for Lying about Graduating Elementary School to Get a Job


A Greek cleaning lady was sentenced to 10 years in prison for lying about her elementary school record in a court ruling. Her sentence has outraged the people and rightly so. The 53-year-old woman had worked at a publicly-funded nursery for 15 years until a review in 2014 revealed she had doctored a certificate documenting her primary education. The judge held that the sentence was based upon defrauding the public. What about the politicians who conspired with Goldman Sachs to hide losses that have really defrauded the Greek people?

Rising 3rd Party Trend


Although the recounts have been going on, the Republicans still seem to be winning both governorships and the Senate. The Blue Wave fizzled out and their victory in the House still produced fewer seats than they held before.

That FOX poll that reported 46% of Republicans identified with Trump rather than the GOP clearly shows that our computer has been correct in not merely forecasting a Trump victory in 2016 and no Blue Wave here in 2018 that would take the Senate and House, but that Trump really is an outsider and interestingly enough is the closest thing there is to a 3rd Party candidate,

The Democratic victory in the House at least placate them from the violence they have been threatening if they lost. But that decorum will not last long. They will turn up the violence into 2020 and as out computer is showing, we may see a significant rise into 2023/4 with more and more people becoming independent. In the end, the question becomes: Is there a Third Party Solution

BREXIT v EU


Dominic Raab, who was the negotiator in BEXIT told the chief whip straight after cabinet yesterday that he would quit. He said the prime minister could still change course and should be ready to walk away with no deal. Naturally, Prime Minister May defends the deal and this is indicative of someone who never supported BREXIT, to begin with.

Meanwhile, Chancellor Merkel said talks to amend the draft agreement were unlikely as a deal was “on the table” and Britain should just walk away and let Europe see the stupidity of their actions. Britain is the biggest market for German cars in Europe. A no deal will devastate the German economy at a critical time when it needs that trade the most.
