Paparazzi shots of Malia and Sasha Obama have been quashed by the White House after a photographer reportedly stumbled across the girls on a public beach in Hawaii. The images of the President´s daughters were taken last week while a paparazzo was actually waiting for singer Jessica Simpson to leave her vacation home. Secret service agents, who were accompanying the girls on their walk, immediately approached the photographer and asked for identification. They allowed the man to keep his camera but gave him a stern warning to stop photographing the first daughters.

Who are the "family friends"? Who paid for their vacation, American taxpayers? Everything about this family is a big secret, except the dollar amount for their vacations. This one was a whopping 7 million dollars.

All this is absolute baloney. Folks, you live in the White House and work for us, how dare any First Family freak out over even ordinary phoographs like this? I see they are not very attractive pictures but tough.

But if one of the Bush girls (admittedly older young ladies) was caught having one of those adult beverages, it was stop the presses at Natl. Enquirer and breaking news at MSNBC.

I have no burning desire to see sausage and maligner, but I do think taxpayers have the right to know who and what they are paying for on this vacation or any vacation.

They are no more special than any other elected official.

don´t care to see the photos,

i just want to know who and what taxpayers paif for on this vacation.

I am no fan of paparazzi, and I´m a big fan of the United States Secret Service, but the photographers should have said the following to the Secret Service agents who accosted them:

1. It´s a public beach
2. No, you may not see my identification.

The Secret Service is tasked with protecting their charges from attack, not with enforcing their whimsical notion of propriety on the rest of us. They should be politely but firmly discouraged from demanding identification from folks going about their lawful business in a public place.

I think they don´t want you to know there are ´friends´ with them and how many there are. Remember the uproar when Moo!chelle used several floors of the very expensive hotel in Spain (I think) for the hundreds of friends and SS agents. In fact, I think it took two hotels to hold all of them. They just want to avoid another uproar from the peasants. Will he have $1.5 billion/year to pay their expenses when he hopefully is back as a private citizen or will he write an EO or whatever to keep the $$ coming. Remember Klintoon continued SS coverage for Web´s little girl at taxpayer expense.

Like prior posters, I haven´t any need to see photos of BHO´s kids on the beach, and I don´t even have much of a problem with BHO asking (not demanding/requiring/intimidating) various press organizations not to publish such photos - especially as they are under 18.

However, the more important and most chilling aspect of this story is the part about the Praetorian Guard, I mean Secret Service, accosting the photographer, demanding identification, and "warning" him to not take photos. As prior poster pointed out photography of people in public spaces and places is not illegal, nor is it grounds amounting to "reasonable suspicion" that would even properly warrant such action.

Like it or not, BHO´s kids are public figures, he put them in that position. He has used them for various photo opportunities - including political events, and has invoked their names to promote his political agenda. They are minors, if he would rather they not be photographed on a beach or elsewhere, he has the means and access to secured locations to do so.

Contrary to the desires or many, he is not our King, nor is he God, him, his wife and their kids are (ideally - if not in actuality) are expected to abide by the same rules as you and me.

It sure is Lupita Nyong´o´s year to shine! The first-time Oscar winner was crowned as this year´s "Most Beautiful" by People magazine. The mag announced who was awarded their prestigious honor Wednesday morning. "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," Nyong´o said of gracing the cover. "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on (it) and feel a little more seen." The 31-year-old actress has certainly proved this past year that she is beautiful both inside and out.

Given the current state of the USA, Republicans should be winning every election from Seattle to Key West. The economy hasn’t moved for years with the labor participation rate at record lows — people have given up – and bankruptcy over entitlements looming. The international situation is in free fall with China becoming the global power, Iran making a mockery of faux negotiations and Putin on the way to reconstituting the Soviet Union. Al Qaeda is not only alive, it’s growing. (GM is dead.) Optimism about our country is in the proverbial toilet. More Americans feel threatened by their own

The age 21 rule sets the United States apart from all advanced Western nations, and it has pushed kids toward pills and other anti-social behavior. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act, passed by Congress 30 years ago this July, is a gross violation of civil liberties and must be repealed. It is absurd and unjust that young Americans can vote, marry, enter contracts, and serve in the military at 18 but cannot buy an alcoholic drink in a bar or restaurant. The age 21 rule sets the United States apart from all advanced Western nations and lumps it with small

Atheists who complained about pre-meeting prayers conducted by members of the Pismo Beach City Council in California can now claim a win. Council members say they’re going to stop saying prayers at public meetings and that the volunteer chaplain will no longer be invited to give the opening invocations, The Blaze reported. They’ve also agreed to pay a symbolic settlement of $1 to each of the the two plaintiffs — and another $47,500 to cover the two plaintiffs’ legal fees. The council members announced their decision on the heels of complaints filed by the out-of-state Freedom From Religion Foundation, which

"Ben will not be just another vote in the Senate – he will be a leader in the fight to stop the Obama agenda and repeal ObamaCare from day one." Cruz will join Sen.

The update also lets you view Street View in different seasons, and during the night as well. “For the longest time we’ve had Street View users asking that we either preserve the imagery we had or that we give them the ability to go back in time and look at imagery the way it was before,” said Luc Vincent, the Google Maps Street View director of engineering.

- As promised on Monday, the Justice Department today released its new criteria for inmates who want their prison sentences reduced. Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole announced six "stringent standards" the department will consider when reviewing and expediting clemency applications from federal inmates. He also replaced the Bush administration appointee who heads DOJ´s Pardons office. Under the new initiative, DOJ will prioritize clemency applications from inmates who meet all of the following requirements:-- They are currently serving time in a federal prison and likely would have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of the same offense(s) today;

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
