President Obama promised to help victims of Hurricane Sandy after the storm ravaged the East Coast. But after meeting with the president, one Staten Island family says he has broken that promise. Scott and Deidre McGrath joined Fox and Friends to tell their heartbreaking story. Scott spoke to the president after the storm, in what he described as a “staged” meeting. He said, “They put us into this tent and they wanted to make believe we were shopping for our products. Most of the residents that live in that area were never up there.” After waiting on line,

Seriously? You folks on Staten Island, you really thought he gives a rat´s arse about your plight? I´ll bet you are receiving more help from charitable organizations and volunteers than you are from government.

Those rabid white racists on Staten Island are confused, it was Bush who lied and did this to them.

President George W. bush was demonized for Katrina, when in fact the post storm damage was inflicted by Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin.
President Zero makes a quick trip to the area hit by Sandy, Governor Fat Bast*rd kisses Zero´s butt, Zero wins reelection because of really stupid voters like this whining couple, and Zero´s teflon coating keeps him immune from his own incompetence.
I want the McGraths and those like them to shut up.

I think I may start an on-line business of the world´s tiniest violins. There will be a lot of liberals you can give one to in the next four years.

#5 - My anger with the media began to turn into something akin to hatred with the Katrina coverage. I am pretty sure the rescue effort was the largest, most successful rescue every conducted by anyone, anywhere - over 10,000 people by the National Guard and Coast Guard. They couldn´t report that because they had to destroy Bush and the Republicans.

It is still amazing how ignorant, blind, and gullible many Americans and those internationally.

BO has lied at the very least since he entered public office in IL. There is enough evidence to suggest he lied prior re: real estate deals, education, grades, financial aid and the source of tuition backing (but that is another issue).

Prior to 2008, through is first-term and now commencing his second term, there is not one "promise", statement or stance that he has not completely lied about. What is mind-blowing is often facts that reveal the lies are televised, recorded, and corroborated by others...yet very few people either notice or care.

Worse and even more shocking is that he harbors and parades blatant contempt for whites and jews, and yet they still vote for him in droves.

As his "Vote for Revenge Campaign" blanketed the nation for two years, this re-election provides him the hammer and sickle in which to exact his revenge upon the wealthy, the producers, the whites and the Israelis.

And what is equally as horrible is the Americans who detest this person, have no ability to exact their revenge upon him.

Right on #19. The Dems never learn. They don´t realize BHO uses them only to vote Democrapists into office. By the way BHO is looking for a way to beat the 22nd ammendment and go for a 3rd term.I´ll wager if that happens, your house will still not be taken care of to make it habitible after 4 years. EMPTY PROMISES and Angered Residents? You´ll vote for him again.

The Electoral College does not meet until December 17. If you live in a Republican State (24 States voted solidy Republican), convince your Electors to boycott the meeting on Dec. 17. The 12th Amendment will then be effective and the House will elect the President..DO IT NOW.

Since Sandy caused tens of billions of dollars worth of property damage throughout New York and New Jersey, it can´t be only Staten Islanders who are suffering.

However, it seems as if only Staten Islanders have enough courage to speak up about Obama´s empty promises.

It will take years to restore New York and New Jersey to pre-Sandy conditions, during which property values will decline and taxpayers will leave for other states unless FEMA, under the so-far malfeasant direction of Obama changes its ways.

But who will put pressure on Obama to do so? The governors of New York and New Jersey have been Obama´s biggest fans as they watch their citizens being abandoned to their misery.

Let´s hope the citizens of Staten Island will continue to hold angry townhalls and Fox News will continue to cover them so the world will know that New York and New Jersey still have pulses.

I feel so bad for all those suffering because of Sandy. Their lives have been absolutely devastated and any politician going there for a photo op is lower than pond scum. These people are desperate and believed the most senior person in the U.S. government when he told them to their faces that he would take care of everything. Unfortunately it has taken this storm to open their eyes to what we have known for the last four years. Obama is incompetent and he is a liar.

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

Once the province of activists and stoners, the traditional pot holiday of April 20 has gone mainstream in the first state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana. Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater — acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog — to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to waft at 4:20 p.m. MDT Sunday.

The Assemblywoman is feisty, unflappable, stays on message, goes at Hayes hard, and comes out looking great. A terrific segment and a good interview by Hayes, amazingly enough. The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
