First lady to attend
funeral of Chicago teen

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Daniel Strauss

First lady Michelle Obama will attend the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton, a Chicago teenager who was killed near her home shortly after she performed at the 2013 presidential inauguration. The first lady will attend the funeral services alongside White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, according to a White House official "On Saturday, Feb. 9, the first lady will travel to Chicago to attend the funeral service for Hadiya Pendleton," the official confirmed to The Hill. "Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will also attend."

Shocking!! Just when you think the Democrats can´t stoop any lower. This will turn into an offensive political circus with all the focus on the disgusting Mooch. Why does Valarie Jarrett have to attend?? How much will this cost us??

7 & 8 Will MO wear something appropriate? Will she speak at the funeral? ´If I had another daugher, she would be like Hadiya.´
Does the family want MO there and are they prepared to feed her?

Arnie, Val, and MO are attending services for a child´s death in Chicago. What makes this death more signicant than the hundreds of other kids killed in our Nation´s Gun Law Capitol?... Purely, the ugly face of crass politics.

The circus atmosphere of the presence of these three frauds belittles the death of this young girl.

These people do not just pick and choose winners and losers, they even pick and choose whose funerals to attend. When it is politically expedient, they attend one of the
numerous funerals held in Chicago this year.
I don´t think you could find a more disgusting group of individuals no matter how many rocks you looked under. What about all the other funerals in the Country? Why attend this particular funeral ? Are they heading from there to Dallas to attend the funeral of an actual hero, the decorated Seal sniper who was killed attempting to help returning
veterans, or is he too white, too Conservative, and he shot too many enemy terrorists ( Islamic radicals). Somebody advise them that his funeral is in Cowboy Stadium Monday and that is the one they should be attending. Everyone should be equal
but in the eyes of this Administration, equal isn´t the same as in our eyes. All my opinion.

They lived in that frozen rat hole on the lake for years.
They were a part of the corrupt government that exist today.
They have done nothing during his administration to try and save at least some of these kids.

If I was that girls parents I would not allow them to use my child like this.

I think it´s a great idea. Mooshie should just move to Chicago and attend EVERY funeral in the city where the hoods knocked off each other and any bystanders who happened by. That would keep her in the city for better that 500 days a year...she missed a great opportunity in 2012 to make 530 funerals. No sweat, the Chicago dudes are working to beat that figure this year.

Hard to explain this away standing before the throne one day.

Two possible explanations in this life: it´s on the way to where Mo´s vacationing; or she wants to do some shopping in Chicago. Or both, I guess. Three explanations.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

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.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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."

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. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

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
