  • Mark Steyn wrote his weekly column on the P5+1 agreement with Iran: “But look at it this way: It’s been clear for some time that the United States was not going to take out Iran’s nuclear facilities. That leaves only one other nation even minded to keep the option on the table: Israel. Hence the strange new romance between the Zionist Entity and the Saudi and Gulf cabinet ministers calling every night to urge them to get cracking: In the post-American world, you find your friends where you can, even if they’re Jews.”

  • Matt Labash followed two Enroll America employees as they went door-to-door in Florida, trying to convince people to sign up for ObamaCare. His article opens with a discussion of Enroll America’s nonpartisan mission: “These Obamacare evangelists are very serious about the ‘nonpartisan’ nature of their business. Nearly every Enroll America staffer I speak to emphasizes it, often repeatedly. And while it might strain credulity that an organization is nonpartisan which seeks to make sure people are Obamacared for by setting $100 million fundraising goals for itself, and conducting $5 million ad campaigns, and targeting 10 different states, 9 of which are coincidentally run by Republican governors, I choose to take them at their word. After all, Enroll America boasts all manner of nonpartisan credentials. Most of its staffers seem to have worked in the nonpartisan Obama presidential campaigns of 2008 or 2012, often both. Its president, Anne Filipic, served as deputy executive director of the nonpartisan Democratic National Committee, and came here straight from the nonpartisan White House Office of Public Engagement. The nonpartisan Obamacare czar, Kathleen Sebelius (whom Filipic also worked for), has admitted putting the arm on companies to make donations to Enroll America, sparking several nonpartisan congressional investigations.”

  • The federal ObamaCare exchange web site won’t be fully ready for business as scheduled tomorrow, but the Obama administration will declare victory anyway and rely on the mainstream media to evangelize on their behalf.
