The Increasing Instability of Obamacare – National Review
.

.
United Healthcare’s announcement that it is pulling out of most of the exchanges established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – a.k.a. Obamacare – is one of many indications of the law’s continuing instability.

United made this decision for obvious reasons: It was losing too much money, with no prospect of a quick turnaround. The company reported that it lost $475 million on plans sold in the ACA’s exchanges in 2015 and expects to lose another $650 million in 2016…

Rape Trees, Dead Migrants And The Consequences Of An Open Border – Breitbart

Many of the most caring people in the U.S. think they are helping the poor from Latin America by leaving our Southwest border wide open between ports-of-entry, but they are not. Several of the transnational criminal organizations (cartels) operating in Central America and Mexico make an estimated one-third or more of their profits from illegal immigration. Specifically, two groups below Texas, the Gulf and Los Zetas cartels, are largely fueled by the trafficking and smuggling of human beings.

The brutality of these criminal groups, from incinerating innocents in a network of ovens to their near complete control of state and local governments, is largely paid for by funds generated from illegal immigration – a shadowy economic engine that is only possible because we refuse to properly secure our border with Mexico….

Nebraska Abolishes Civil Forfeiture – Daily Signal

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, a Republican, has signed a major state forfeiture bill into law. Like New Mexico before it, the Cornhusker State now requires a criminal conviction before property can be forfeited.

Civil forfeiture is the law enforcement tool, which allows property suspected of being involved in, or derived from, criminal activity to be seized by police, sheriffs, and federal agents. It was ramped up in the 1980’s as a means of combatting the drug trade and organized crime, with the goal of stripping kingpins of their assets and ill-gotten gains.

Thirty years later, though, forfeiture has morphed into a system that is far more often used to seize relatively small amounts of cash, that stacks the deck against property owners fighting to get it back, and that encourages profiteering by law enforcement authorities….

Solar Developer SunEdison In Bankruptcy As Aggressive Growth Plan Unravels – Reuters

SunEdison Inc SUNE.N, once the fastest-growing U.S. renewable energy company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Thursday after a short-lived but aggressive binge of debt-fueled acquisitions proved unsustainable.

SunEdison’s two publicly traded subsidiaries, TerraForm Power Inc (TERP.O) and TerraForm Global Inc (GLBL.O), are not part of the bankruptcy.

Man Busted For Setting Houston Mosque Fire On Christmas Day Is A Devout Muslim

Man Charged With Setting Houston Mosque Fire Was A Devout Attendee – Houston Chronicle

.
……………………………

.
A Houston man has been arrested in connection with a suspected arson at a mosque on Christmas Day.

A spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed that the man was arrested early Wednesday, sometime after midnight, and appeared in court 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The suspect, Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, of Houston, appeared in court at 7 a.m., spokeswoman Nicole Strong said.

According to a charging instrument released by the Harris County District Clerk, Moore told investigators at the scene that he has attended the mosque for five years, coming five times per day to pray seven days per week.

Moore told investigators he had been at the mosque earlier on Dec. 25 to pray, and had left at about 2 p.m. to go home. Moore told investigators he was the last person to leave the mosque and saw no smoke or other signs of fire when he left. He had returned to the scene after hearing about the fire from a friend.

Though the suspect said he was a regular at the mosque, MJ Khan, president of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, which operates the mosque, said he was unfamiliar with Moore. “We are just looking into it ourselves,” he said Wednesday morning after learning of the arrest.

“We are really very surprised and saddened by this whole thing,” said Khan.

Using surveillance video from multiple businesses nearby, investigators were able to identify Moore, according to records. A search warrant of his home was conducted, in which investigators recovered a backpack and clothing that seemingly matched that which was seen in surveillance footage, as well as one half of a two-pack of charcoal lighter fluid bottles that seemed to match another lighter fluid bottle found inside the mosque.

Bond for Moore has been set at $100,000.

It took about 80 firefighters to put out the two-alarm blaze at the storefront mosque in Savoy Plaza, near Wilcrest Drive and West Bellfort.

Steven Crowder makes a deep dive, pardon the imagery, into the world of the social justice warrior mentality, and the transgender world when he discusses the moral ambiguity of the transgender 52-year-old guy who has “transitioned” into a 6-year-old girl. Who plows snow.

Watch below:

Yeah that’s just frickin’ weird. Crowder makes a lot of good points in the video, which excerpts a lot of scenes of the transgender dude talking about their “transition.”

Black Man Arrested For Starting String Of Church Fires In Mostly Black St. Louis Neighborhoods

Suspect, ‘Black Man In His 30s’, Arrested In St. Louis Church Fires – Weasel Zippers

.

.
We noted the strange nature of this case, that the fires were set at the door, seemingly set to go out, as most didn’t cause damage beyond some burnt marks on the doors.
.

ST. LOUIS • Police have made an arrest in connection with a two-week string of church arsons, most of which occurred at places of worship in black neighborhoods, the Post-Dispatch has learned. The suspect is a black man in his 30s, according to a police source.

Investigators are expected to seek criminal charges against him today.

The string of fires, many of which did minimal damage, drew attention of local and federal investigators. The locations drew speculation of whether it was a hate crime.

The Rev. Robert Gettinger, of St. Augustine Catholic Church, 1371 Hamilton Avenue, said news of an arrest is a relief.

“We pray for the person who has done this. It seems to be mentally off balance behavior,” Gettinger said.

He said the church remains grateful that damage was isolated to the front doors, common in all the fires. St. Augustine has not yet received bids, but damage is easily in the thousands of dollars, he said.

Man Gets Banned For Life From Starbucks For Defending Disabled People (Video)

Check Out What One Man Did To Get Himself Banned From Starbucks… For Life – Independent Journal Review

.

.
A man living in St. Petersburg, Florida says he has been banned from Starbucks for life because he called out customers who illegally parked in handicapped parking spaces.

According to the man, Rob Rowen, he recently received a letter from the business saying he had been “disrupting business and threatening customers.”

When Rowen initially received the letter from Starbucks, he thought they were writing to apologize for a manager who banned him from his local store. But instead, he told WTSP that Starbucks wrote to inform him that he wasn’t ever allowed to step foot in another Starbucks again:

“I get this letter, which shocked me.”

Rowen says his motivation behind asking people who aren’t handicapped to move their cars elsewhere is personal:

“My son-in-law has muscular dystrophy and is in a power wheelchair. I’ve seen so many times, the issue of him trying to find a parking space.”

After several confrontations with customers, Rowen says his local Starbucks manager accused him of “harassing” customers, which is why she banned him, according to Bay News 9:

“She said to me, you’re harassing my customers. I said, I’m one of your customers. I’m a regular customer and I’m trying to help you protect your other customers who might not be able to park anywhere else.”

When Rowen tried to appeal the manager’s decision, the local Starbucks district manager said the store manager’s decision would stand.

A Starbucks spokeswoman confirmed to WTSP that Rowen was banned from Starbucks because he became “confrontational” with customers, adding that they understand his concerns and they are speaking with the store’s landlord to improve the parking situation.

Oklahoma Man Pleads Guilty To Killing His Stepfather With An ‘Atomic Wedgie’

Man Pleads Guilty To Manslaughter By ‘Atomic Wedgie’ – Daily Caller

.

.
Many people have fallen victim to a wedgie, the yanking of one’s underpants up from behind by the elastic waistband. Fewer have fallen prey to the dreaded “atomic wedgie,” which Urban Dictionary defines as “When one is still in undewear (sic) and someone pulls up on the waistband and tries to pull it over the recivers (sic) head.”

While both wedgies are usually attempted in jest, one atomic wedgie turned deadly in Oklahoma.

Brad Davis, 34, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of his stepfather Denver Lee St. Clair, 58, after a fight between the two that led to Davis administering an atomic wedgie on St. Clair that caused his death.

.
…………………..

.
After the fight, which end with St. Clair being rendered unconscious, Davis administered the atomic wedgie. Davis pulled the elastic waistband all the way over St. Clair’s head and around his neck, causing asphyxiation.

Davis was originally charged with first-degree murder, but the plea bargain saw him plead guilty to first-degree manslaughter.

Davis, a former Marine, “had been bullied all his life by this guy (St. Clair),” according to Davis’s lawyer, and he “was just tired of taking it.”

The altercation occurred on Dec. 21, 2013, after the pair had been drinking and St. Clair allegedly made disparaging remarks about Davis’ mother, from whom St. Clair was estranged.

Davis, facing between four and 35 years for manslaughter in the case, will remain held without bond until his sentencing in July.
