Must be a week were Obamacare bad stores can be hidden or people on vacation. Today we find there was an undercover operation that found that the majority of fake Obamacare applications submitted were approved by the health law’s enrollment system. The fake applicants were able to get subsidized insurance coverage in 11 of 18 attempts, according to a report from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office. The agency conducted their own audit operation to test the strength of how Obamacare handles eligibility with their self-built verification system. The findings will be discussed in a House Ways and Means hearing. The undercover investigators created fake identities by inventing Social Security numbers, income, and citizenship, and by counterfeiting documents. They were almost perfect as 11 of 12 fake online or telephone applications were approved. Six online applications were initially blocked by the verification system, but the investigators were able to find a workaround by going through the call center. This little study revealed the 11 approved applications is about $2,500 monthly or about $30,000 annually. The good news the in-person caretaker stopped five out of six cases. We have said repeatedly Obamacare leaves the government vulnerable to fraud like they have never seen before.
We all know the day is coming when Obamacare blows out the pocketbooks of taxpaying Americans. We had hoped the two federal appeals courts would shed light instead they issuing contradictory rulings on a key financing issue. Everyone agrees neither will get to Supreme Court. One ruling a divided three-judge panel in Washington called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people afford their premiums, saying financial aid can be provided only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges. The second was in Richmond, Virginia, where an appeals court panel unanimously came to the opposite conclusion, ruling that the Internal Revenue Service correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing health insurance tax credits for consumers in all 50 states. The President will stall here as he can ask the Washington case decided by a three-judge panel, for a full 11-member appeals court to hear the case. This is more than likely a slam dunk as the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has seven judges appointed by Democratic presidents, including four by Obama. If they do not agree to hear case then we are then back to the prospect of Supreme Court.
This week we highlight someone who every year we say that will be last time she is on the list or have a week. This week we choose Maria Halle Berry. Halle was born August 14, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio. She has not have a week since 2012. She dropped of the list in 2014 but before that she was #44 in 2013, #36 in 2012 and 2011, in 2010 she was our #25, 2009 #11 and in 2008 her highest placement she was #8. You cannot deny her timeless beauty and every year she seems show up and blow us away. This week was one of those weeks as she showed up on the late night scene and starring in a new TV show Extant. Halle is always working as she now has a TV show and working on a movie Vanita Gupta. There have been plenty of movies that are great some of our favorites Monster’s Ball, Perfect Stranger, X-Men, and Frankie and Alice. Halle has an amazing body and knows how to use it, she always teases us with the perfect mix of cleavage and leg and has mastered dressing sexy. We are not sure if this will return to the list but on TV every week never hurts.
The problem with the Hillary Rodham Clinton train for president if it is not her, what other Waco could they elect. The 2016 Democratic presidential race seems to be all but given to Hillary so who can sway that to another like President Barack Obama did in 2008. We are hearing some names Senator Elizabeth Warren the Indian is one name, she is a perfect lying about heritage classic limousine liberal. A couple other looking to make traction from the senate are Amy Klobuchar and. Kirsten Gillibrand is from New York and so is Governor Andrew M. Cuomo looking for a gap to squeeze in. Maryland also has Governor Martin O’Malley looking to make a name. The list of Governors grows every day and in Missouri Jay Nixon has hinted he is ready. There is our favorite Vice President Biden who been running for something since 1972. If we are talking crazy Joe we might as well add in crazy Bernard Sanders who has been in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Politics never gets old as Gary Hart is going try to coax California Governor Jerry Brown at a run, this would be the 400th for Brown. No shortage so do we want Hillary or anyone of these cast of characters?
Now that we are in the summer you need a road trip. We wanted to let you know of a great stop on Route 17 in New Jersey, The Hermitage. This is a National Historic Landmark that is located on five acres of lawn shaded by centuries-old trees. The fourteen-room Gothic Revival home was built in 1847 from designs by William H. Ranlett for Elijah Rosencrantz Jr. The Hermitage is now owned by the State of New Jersey and operated by the Friends of the Hermitage, Inc. The site is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. The Hermitage Museum which consist of the historic house, exhibition galleries, and gift shop is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. We found the best part to be that General Washington Is Invited to Make His Headquarters at The Hermitage in July 1778 as the Continental Army, after the important Battle of Monmouth, had marched from New Brunswick and the Great Falls of the Passaic toward the Hudson Highlands with plans to encamp for a rest at Paramus. Washington’s secretary said after leaving the falls of the Passaic, we passed through fertile country to a place called Paramus. We stopped at a Mrs. Watkins’, whose house was marked for headquarters. But the General, receiving a note of invitation from a Mrs. Provost to make her hermitage, as it was called, the seat of his stay while at Paramus. This is just one of the nuggets in the storied history of this house.
This week for the Woman of the Week we used Caitlin Fitzgerald the photo we used was from her red carpet walk up to the Broadcast Television Journalists Association’s third annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 10, 2013 in Beverly Hills, California. She is tearing it up in a IZMAYLOVA Candytuft Citron canary yellow strapless asymmetric evening gown from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The evening design with structured contouring along the bodice and hips, and sheer panels traveling down the sides and a thigh-high slit. Izmaylova London around since 2009 has created ready-to-wear and made-to-measure luxury womenswear collections driven by impeccable fit and quality.

Remember when the Clintons were poor living in the White House well those days are long gone and good bye. It was revealed that rolling in the deep has turned into rolling in the dough for Hillary Clinton. The former secretary of state was paid $2,777 per minute for two university speaking engagements. You know there is blood in the water when these contracts start to surface these one came with a juicy tidbit that she insisted on contracts that cut off reporters’ access to her and limited the number of photos she would take with well-wishers. This was taken from an August 2013 speaking engagement at the State University of New York at Buffalo. This contract was for two engagements and the two totals netted the Clinton family foundation $500,000 for three hours of work. She also put a rider in the contract that allowed her to cancel or reschedule the events for any reason whatsoever. This is rich not to make too much of a pun, but the democrats complain college costs are too high, they complain taxes are not high enough. This is a case where she is abusing both of these from all sides’ sounds to me like she will make a great president for the sheep’s on the left.
You thought congress was useless. You thought a GOP-controlled House can do nothing that had any meaning. All they ever do is stop things and pass nothing to help the American people. That is no longer the case. The House has used the fact they control the purse strings to do something good for all Americans. They passed a $20 billion measure that would slash budgets for enforcing tax laws and new financial regulations. They also threw some dirt by way of the White House buy cutting the healthy food initiative of which first lady Michelle Obama was such a big fan. The House passed the bill 228-195, pretty much a right down the aisle vote. They are trying as there is a provision that would block the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing the mandate on individuals to buy health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. They slashed the administration’s $35 million request to help community development banks finance projects aimed at making healthy foods more available in neighborhoods that lack grocery stores. The House adopted an amendment by Kentucky GOP Representative Thomas Massie that would limit the District of Columbia government from enforcing gun laws passed the wake of the 2008 Supreme Court decision that overturned the city’s handgun ban. The ordinances impose hurdles to gun ownership such as fees and fingerprinting. The measure also would cut the IRS’ enforcement budget by $1.2 billion, or 25 percent. The agency targeted tea party groups seeking tax-exempt status and has lost emails they need a little slap in the budget.
We wanted to go over fashion week from France. We thought it might have been over covered this year. We think so many high profile celebs made the trip including the Charlize Theron, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lawrence, Kardashian crew, Kate Winslet, Emma Watson, Emmanuelle Seigner, Aissa Maiga, Jared Leto, Sophia Loren, and Jennifer Lopez made it a who’s who for coverage instead of the fashion. The event is held this year at Carrousel du Louvrehe hosts some 30 Haute Couture fashion shows and 40 menswear shows. The mens side rocked as the famed French fashion house Carven debuted classic summer chic and real-world workwear clothing. Things like lumber-jack check shirts, grey suits with ruffled elastic bands, turtle-necks, office shirts and sweaters. Valentino showcased a 52-piece range inspired from outsiders and freethinkers. The collection’s most standout piece was a 60s-style ethnic suede jackets. Christian Dior, went with a blend of Japanese and streetwear styles, the collection showcased white, navy and black toned long jackets with kimono like shawl-collar lapels, 19th century Japanese woodcut patterned vests and tight fit sweaters. This is just as taste as next time you need to make sure you watch, The next edition of Paris Fashion Week will be held from 23th of September to 1st October where the designers are going to present their Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear collections.
This week we highlight a new comer to the list it is from TV. Caitlin FitzGerald was born in 1983 in raised in Camden, Maine. We picked her this week because her show Masters of Sex returned to Showtime for season two. There are many ladies that could have been chosen from this show as there is a lot of naked eye candy and plenty of adultery in the name of science. We saw this photo of Caitlin and had to make sure she got a week when the show came back on. Her blonde hair perfect face, engaging smile are enough to captivate you. Then when you see her walk with long legs and flawless figure you cannot look away. She has been working on the small screen and large getting plenty of work. You will see her this year in two movies Adult Beginners and Manhattan Romance both in post-production. She was great in It’s Complicated but the first time we saw her was in the HBO show How to Make it in America. If you know anything about Masters and Johnson you know that Caitlin could get swept under the rug as the story evolves. For now we are enjoying our time and hoping for all we can get.

Once again the GOP has made a star out of ridicule. You may remember the former Georgetown University law student who gained made the lame streamers gush when she was denied the chance to testify in Congress for health plan contraception coverage. We compounded this error by jumping on her and the biggest mistake was the degrading comments by radio host Rush Limbaugh. Well just like pretend Indian Senator Warren played the cards against the GOP victory here comes Sandra Fluke. You may have seen this coming as she is running as a first-time candidate for a seat in California’s state Senate to represent some of the most affluent communities of Los Angeles County, a district that stretches from the Hollywood Hills to the Palos Verdes peninsula. If the money goes her way it should be an easy win as Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1. Fluke has an agenda other than a big middle finger to the GOP as she campaigns on an agenda that includes subsidized early education, greater environmental protection, expanded public transit and public matching funds for political campaigns, not to mention her advocacy of women’s rights. We have no one to blame for this one but ourselves.
We wanted to let you know about the coolest rims on the planet from lexani. You have to check out these wheels as they are the lightest wheels on the market. Can you imagine when the light shine of these at night they will sparkle and turn heads. The glittering ten spoke design is by far the best thing we have seen on the market in long time. This is a game changer and you do not want to be last to be on board. If you read the comments you will see people are locked on to these and need them.
We love when the branches of government go at each other. It proved the constitution works and was an amazing document written over two hundred years ago with such insight. We are sure the lame streamers just see it as bipartisan fodder. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa will be subpoenaing a top administration official, David Simas, the director of the White House’s Office of Political Strategy and Outreach, and demanding that he testify. House Oversight and Government Reform has been after the White House for more information about the political office that Simas runs since it was reopened earlier this year. This is clearly an illegal use of taxpayer funds to support congressional campaigns during the 2014 midterm elections and everyone know it. There was no other reason to reopen the office other than to help with getting democrats elected and this is not what our tax money should be funding in office space, man hours and strategy. There has been little response from President Barack Obama and his office to the repeated requests for documents and more information. Issa only play is to use compulsory process to require Simas to appear, get your popcorn this hearing is scheduled for July 16.
This week we highlighted Olivia Munn the photo we used was from the Deliver Us From Evil Cast and Filmmakers press line at Wondercon. The event was held at Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday April 19, 2014 in Anaheim, California. The look she brought to the party was a short and sweet in a Valentino tailored navy sleeveless romper with a crew neck, side seam pockets, creases, and a fitted waist with neutral makeup. She has Dana Rebecca Designs earrings, and rings by Graziela Gems, Dana Rebecca Designs, EF Collection. The majority of the pop of this look came from the Sophia Webster Yinka sandals which from the front seem plain but the side explodes with the whimsical appeal we have come to expect from Webster. It brings it all with stripes and polka dots in a dual yellow and mint shade. These yellow and black leather sandals feature slim black patent leather front straps, skinny black patent leather ankle straps with side buckle fastenings, a yellow scalloped-edge back with circle cutout detailing and black suede backing, yellow and black striped insoles, and yellow and black striped 4.5″ stiletto heels You can pull the look of yourself for $1,980 Valentino Sleeveless Romper and $592 Sophia Webster Yinka Sandals.
