Morning Wakeup Call for Wednesday, March 4: Obamacare redux at SCOTUS; Hillary pilloried; Ben Carson explores; Bibi warns
Today’s the day for a second round of Obamacare at the Supreme Court and more
- A wake-up call for the Republicans in Congress, such as they are given the DHS debacle. Once again outmaneuvered by shot-calling Harry Reid, should Obamacare be over-turned, what’s the plan? You might need one very quickly. In layman’s terms, here’s what’s at stake in King v. Burwell as covered by Scotusblog.com.
- This one may not be going away folks. Hillary’s dug herself a deep one this time. Using a personal email account to conduct official government business, and not just herself, but Huma and others as well. Democrat-leaning pubs like Politico are now printing the once thought unthinkable, “What if Hillary bows out“, not to mention National Journal’s Ron Fournier beating them to the punch yesterday with his piece, “Maybe Hillary Clinton should Retire Her White House Dreams“. If Hillary does, it will be because she doesn’t want to be embarrassed a second time on a national stage. No other reason.
- Speaking of the White House, Dr. Ben Carson has announced an exploratory committee for a run for the White House. While I have my druthers, Carson is a man who beat the odds by hard work, faith in God, and a mother who wouldn’t let him quit. He would be an inspiration in the White House. However, he would have a much better chance if he were to run for retiring Sen. Mikulski’s seat in 2016. But again, remember he beat the odds, and what an inspiration he would be considering the current occupant.
- Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave an outstanding, historic speech before both Houses of the US Congress. In that speech he said, “Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire.” For a full explanation, in plain English as to what ISIS is and what it wants, revisit The Atlantic where Graeme Wood’s excellent article, “What ISIS really wants” is a wake-up call not only for the morning, but for our future as a civilization.
