Illegal aliens angered because of the stalled immigration/amnesty bill in Congress have some consolation in the generous tax credits they receive.

The perk came not from Congress or top IRS officials but apparently from midlevel bureaucrats, according to the report. ... Among this week's ObamaCare glitches is one no computer tech can fix: Rosilyn Well, the only full-time Affordable Care Act “navigator” in Lawrence, Kan., has an outstanding arrest warrant, The Daily Caller reports.

And playing “bad cop” to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's “good cop,” Ayatollah Sayyid Ahmad Khatami, a member of Iran's so-called “Assembly of Experts,” made clear his country's abhorrence of Israel and America: “Even if one day there are negotiations and contact with America, our hatred for infidels and oppressors will never cease,” Mr. Khatami said, according to a regime media outlet. On this matter no “translation” from Mr. Rouhani is necessary.
