(DNA/Reuters) Secy of State John Kerry claimed on Friday, that Islamic Fascist Iran has a role to play in an alleged “global coalition” to engage ISIS in Iraq and Syria which as declared that its established a caliphate in the region.

In February, Newsmax reported that Iran’s ‘Islamic Revolutionary Guard’ Brig Gen Hossein Salami, threatened to unleash ‘Sleeper Cells’ to launch terrorist strikes against key population centers within the United States.

“We have recognized America’s military strategy and have arranged our abilities and have identified centers in America that will create shock–We will conduct such a blow in which they (America) will be destroyed from within.”

Recent reports according to The Daily Caller have suggested that Islamic Jihad Terrorist forces tied to Hezbollah (a strong ally of Iran) have infiltrated the United States and have identified specific American targets.

How is it again that Obama seems to think that he can somehow charm Iran into cooperating fairly in nuclear talks and that the Iranian regime may be able play a role to defeat ISIS?

Chinese Activist Hu Jia Finds Car Vandalized, Why the China Regime Won’t Stop Harassing Him

Hu Jia Car VandalizedChinese Human Rights Activist Hu Jia Tweeted Found his Car Vandalized This Morning, Is This Another Warning to him by the China Regime?

On the 05 January, 2008 I wrote here that Chinese authorities arrested Hu Jia at his Beijing home accusing him of “Subverting State Authority” a charge often times used against dissidents.

In August, Foreign Policy reprinted an open letter by Hu Jia to the China regime in which he described his life as a “prisoner of conscience” and being under constant surveillance by Chinese authorities, preventing most people from visiting him.

“I’m not alone. All Chinese dissidents are in prison, some are in official prisons, guarded by police that stand behind high walls and electric wires, others are in societal prisons buttressed by “stability maintenance” the name the Chinese Communist Party’s system of controlling what it sees as unstable elements and some like me, move back and forth between the two.”

In July, Radio Free Asia published a photo of Hu Jia after he reportedly was beaten up by “trained men’ (plainclothes cops) on a Beijing street.

Isn’t it ironic and quite frightening, that the annual Beijing Forum on Human Rights kicked off  this week when the China regime has such a dismal human rights record.

ObamaCare “Family Glitch” May Adversely Affect Nearly 2 Million Americans

Family GlitchThe Family Glitch

(Washington Examiner) Nearly 2 Million Americans may be adversely affected by what’s been termed as the “Family Glitch” within ObamaCare according to a new study by the American Action Forum.

ObamaCare is supposed to offer MediCal/Medicaid coverage to anyone whose household income places them below 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL)–contingent on States agreeing to expand their programs. Those above 138% and up to 400% of FPL are eligible for tax subsidies to purchase insurance in ObamaCare exchanges assuming that no one in their family is offered  employer-sponsored health insurance–but under a recent ruling by the IRS is only required to offer health insurance to individuals.

The “Family Glitch” arises when one or both spouses are offered individual health insurance through her/his employer that is deemed to be “affordable” but their employers either do not offer family coverage or that health insurance coverage is not actually affordable.

Such families are unable to obtain federally subsidized health insurance because one or more of their family members was offered affordable employer coverage, so one faces the choice of either purchasing unaffordable coverage or go without health insurance–the study also forecasts the number affected by the “Family Glitch” will likely increase when the employer mandate goes into affect.

(Washington Times) A taxpayer funded musical on ‘climate change’ is closing its curtains early amid a storm of criticism from reviewers and lawmakers.

“The Great Immensity”  produced by Brooklyn based theater company ‘The Civilians, Inc.’ with a $700,000 grant from the Natl Science Foundation, has ended its run after reaching  just 5% of its anticipated audience and likely fell short of its ambitious goal of informing a new generation of the perceived dangers of climate change.
