President Barack Obama will attend a charity concert where PSY is scheduled to perform after it emerged the South Korean rapper participated in anti-American protests several years ago.A spokesman said Friday that the Obama family will attend the December 21 Christmas in Washington concert, as is custom. News reports cite two instances of the 34-year-old "Gangnam Style" rapper participating in concerts protesting the US military presence in South Korea during the early stages of the war in Iraq.
We must just accept the fact that Obama is one of them and work diligently to thwart his polices and get him out of there in 2016 . . . hopefully they´ll be something left of this once great Republic. Remember, you´re only beaten if you say you are.
Obama is like a rebellious teenager. He enjoys stirring controversy. Of course, he will attend and the left will hail him as a hero for doing it. The irony is that it appears that Obama is more anti-American than this SK "rapper." It is interesting that performers and that includes the home grown variety love to hate this country and yet still make millions here. Yeah, America is just a terrible, vile place.
This is just another stunt --one of many, designed by the Mulatto Marxist to rub it in our faces.
He hates this nation. He´s now been elected by the Takers, the blood suckers, the leeches, and given four more years to bring us to ruin. If you thought the first four were bad, buckle your seatbelts, because the next four are going to rougher than anyone could ever imagine.
If We, The People survive this and America --fifty years from now, is still a free country, We will be known as the Greatest Generation to have survived eight years of tyranny. ob@$tard´s reign of terror will be compared to that of Hitler.
I know a Korean man--now a retired academic who has been in the US for fifty years but makes regular trips back to Korea to teach in the summer. He esitmates two or three thousand north Korean agents are in the South. These agents have taken over education and teachers in Korea at all levels are very left. As leftists, they teach that there is nothing good about the US. Psy should reflect upon this: had the US not defeated Japan in 1945, he´d be speaking Japanese, not Korean. Had the US not stepped in in 1950, his second language would be Russian. Had the US not stayed the course in the Korean war, all of Korea would be a subsidiary of communist China. I know and love Korea and the people--I served there nineteen months in the army and three years as a Peace Corps volunteer. We can add that there is an element of race in anti-American (anti-anyone-not Korean, really) and nationalism in the anti-American sentiment that is so prevalent in Korea. But Psy and Obama would agree on the basic leftist premises behind the anti-American thought.
Really! You don´t expect Obama to attend a program actually celebrating Christ´s birth, with carols and religious music, do you? This is the sort of hip mockery that trendy Christophobes everywhere delight in. The America-hatred exhibited by the Yellow Peril or whatever his name is makes it that much more special. I mean, how cool can you get, man?
So, he´s taking in a concert then immediately jetting off to Hawaii for his little $4 million vacation. Goodie for him. Meanwhile, I work for a huge retail chain and, believe me, sales are down. People don´t know what to expect in 2013. So, have fun, Barry. No, don´t give us or the country a second thought.
So, if this POS, Park Jae-sang hates America so much, why has he adopted the RAP genre of that is very American and appearance of American performers? Seems he likes making money ala American style. What a hypocrit! As for this president - there just are no more words.
Hey #18, I like it! Obama, the "thugster". Afterall, he is holding US hostage and extorting funds (unimaginable taxes). The ChicagoWay is definitely his mentality. He is a perfect fit with an anti-American protester.
Why would anyone expect our unamerican dear leader to forego an opportunity to enjoy the lyrics of a man who rejoiced in the death of our soldiers. Obama will probably go there after he gets his 90 minutes of camera time at the Army -Navy game. It would never occur to him that the two acts are disingenuos and insulting to "his" military.
Let us not forget to place blame where it lies. Psy´s lyrics about slowly killing American soldiers talks about doing it in revenge for the "torture of Iraqi prisoners". As we all know, the Mainstream Media used the pictures of faux-torture (a prisoner with wires attached to a battery, another with naked Iraqi´s grouped into a pile) at Abu Ghraib to incite a riot around the world. It resulted in a much more violent opposition in Iraqi to the Allied occupation. Heads were sawed off.
All I saw in those photo´s were soldiers posing their prisoners in embarrassing ways. With smiles on their faces, I had no reason to believe our guys had actually electrocuted, raped, or physically tortured anyone. It was the same sort of thing that occurs annually at fraternity hazings. Those opposed to the War (like the MSM) thought the worst, of course, and sent that around the world to incite hate for the US.
Barry is going to sue him for plagiarism and a share of the royalties. The Choomander in Chief will doing that bizarre grin imagining his buddy singing about killing US troops and their families. This is especially revolting since Obama has presided over a record number of dead American troops in Afghanistan - over 1500 since he was inaugurated. ," Kill those f--ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives and those who ordered them to torture," "Kill them all slowly and painfully," as well as "daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers." You cannot apologize for lyrics like this. Imagine the media outrage if George W Bush attended a concert where a rapper sang about killing black people and their families.
Of course he is. And why not? His hideous wife, snarly and mean-faced daughters will likely be there too, along with the grifter mother-in-law. I won´t be surprised to see him now listed as a regular one or all of the classless, tasteless, offensive and hate-America Big Moo events in our White House.
Before he was elevated to international superstardom this year thanks to the magic of his invisible horse dance, Psy was a rapper and music producer in his native South Korea with a bad-boy reputation. In the late ’90s he dropped out of Boston University and the Berklee School of Music without earning degrees, was fined for his first album in 2001 for using “inappropriate lyrics,” and in 2007 he came under investigation for shirking mandatory military duty in South Korea. Now there’s another indiscretion to add to the “Gangnam Style” star’s rap sheet: Psy is coming under fire for a pair of shocking anti-American performances he gave a decade ago.
According to Korean media reports, during a 2002 performance Psy hoisted a toy model of a U.S. tank and proceeded to smash it on the stage with a microphone stand, later joining the crowd in anti-American chants. Busan Haps reports that there was video of this incident posted on YouTube until recently, when it was removed by an entertainment company citing copyright claims. Psy’s on-stage protest was spurred by the killing of two 14-year-old Korean girls when they were run over by an American military vehicle on a South Korean road just north of Seoul. Anti-American sentiment was high, though the two soldiers driving the vehicle were found not guilty of negligent homicide during a court martial.
We´re not like him. He´s not one of us. If you´re hateful of America, its traditions, or its white population, then you´re "in" with this dope.I´d say more, but since I´m a gentleman, I´ll stop now.....
Some how we have got to come up with a contest to properly "name" this sorry POS in such a way that it is printable in this column. Now that is a challenge as I see it. I tried to use just first letters like S.O.B. but they finally saw through my finer work. I´d offer a prize of some sort but Zippy´s foolin´ with the markets wiped me out. But if anyone deserved a real, honest to goodness cussing contest it is this so-call clown who tries to destroy our country. There are some very good writers and thinkers out there who blog here and I would hope that they join in and see what we can do. We have been so completely betrayed and cheated out of everything we hold dear and I think it´d pay back time!! Let´s give it a shot!!
Drudge reports Obummer is having some ´ Christmas Special ´ . " Heha . Yousee allthose lights on that tree ? . Wellll , each of them represents , uh , one thousand people outta WORK ! " . So uh , we light this tree so EVERYONE one can see what the Bush years did for America ! "
I believe you have it exactly backwards about Nancy Reagan and the Beach Boys. That was why they headlined at the celebration for the Statue of Liberty. Because they represent what has always been great about this country. Their music always makes people feel good. Which is more than we can say about this Korean rapper.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
