´They´re starting to seriously worry´:
Concern growing about low turn-
out at Obama inauguration

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff*

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/6/2013 6:14:54 PM

Crowds may have flocked to the National Mall to see President Obama make history in 2009, but the team behind the president´s 2013 inauguration bash later this month are bracing themselves for a ton of empty seats. The ceremony that Washington will stage in a few weeks won´t be the historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the Capitol o watch Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obama´s public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, January 21.

Comments:
*with Associated Press Staff

So many conclusions can be drawn from the information in this article.

b. Most of those who support Obama have found out their food stamps aren´t accepted for plane and train tickets and hotel accommodations.

b. The money eaten up by more than two balls will be needed to pay the Hawaii vacation bill.

c. Michelle hates any function where she has to talk to ordinary people.

More?

His voters voted 2,3 ++ times each.

Lots of votes, not that many people.

They can invent voters and votes, but they can´t invent celebrants. Too bad, so sad.

Of course, when his donors pony up enough for the lavish festivities, tax payers are going to have to pick up the tab. It´s the Obama Way.

Dems could piggyback on the Zombie craze, if they could get all the dead people that voted for BO to attend. And the Dem allies from all around the world that worked so hard at crippling "Orca" should get complementary seats, too. All on the left side of the aisle, of course.

SO sick if this man´s face on every website I pull up. SO sick of him on nighttime talk shows. SO sick of him in EVERY newscast.

I long for the days when the President actually had a job to do and didn´t go on monthly vacations.

Is there a way back to integrity in our Government?

When Gore tried to steal the election in 2000 some of my friends and I were talking about going to the inauguration, getting a good spot on the parade route and turning our backs to him as he went by. Wouldn´t it be lovely if we could get a huge crowd to show up and do the same thing? How would the press report a parade route full of people with their backs turned to the annointed one? It would ruin all of their film and photographs.

You can count on the Mall being trashed again. It´s a conservative thing to expect people to take responsibility and clean up after themselves. Besides the union street-cleaners are counting on the overtime....and they don´t want to let the union brotherhood down.

No sweat, Obama´s cronies can rent a fleet of greyhound buses to empty out the local ´hoods with free lunches and drinks at taxpayer expense to insure ´overflowing´ crowds come by to gawk at the ´vacationer-in-chief´. I doubt they will be invited into the White House or to the many parties but there are enough hanger on´ to fill those digs out. I will turn to Net Flix and watch something more entertaining.

Don´t fret he is taking the oath in private in the White House so we won´t know what the oath detailed anyway.
If he ventured out for a public oath first he might catch or cold or worse.
Remember the botched oath redo the last time.

The weather man is calling for rain and snow on Jan 21, the day of the festivities. Couldn´t happen to a nicer person. Wet, sloppy snow is my favorite for Obama´s immaculation. At least the grounds keepers on the Mall won´t be nearly as busy with all of those littering, insane followers.

I won´t be watching and it looks as if many here won´t be bothered either. I´ll probably clean or wash my socks.

European Tycoon Accuses Google of

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving. Forget Big Brother – Google is better!" He expressed worries about Google´s dominance

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist.

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. 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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
