Michelle Obama attends funeral of
tragic 15-year-old girl shot dead
in Chicago just days after
attending inauguration

Hundreds of mourners and dignitaries including first lady Michelle Obama packed the funeral service Saturday for a Chicago teen whose killing catapulted her into the nation´s debate over gun violence. Yet, one speaker after another remembered 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton not so much as a symbol but as a best friend, an excellent student with big dreams and simply a girl with a great smile and bubbly personality. They said she was a typical teen who wanted to borrow her friends´ clothes and who never left home without her lip gloss. And to her mother, Pendleton was the

Comments:
There she is! I´m sure the people paid more attention to the Mooch than the poor young girl who was murdered. And then there´s the hypocrite Rahm Emanuel standing there. He should be utterly ashamed of himself. Their behavior is appalling and disgusting. At least she didn´t go sleeveless or wear something that looked like it was made of upholstery fabric.

Strange. Nobody seems to care at all about the 20 or so black kids that get shot every weekend in Chicago. Are girls special? Are majorettes special? Are people who perform in parades special? Why is this death and funeral any different than any other murdered black Chicago kid?

It is NOT gun violence.
It is BLACK violence.

Saying that blacks are killed because of gun violence is like saying that the people killed in the 9/11 attack were killed because of airplane violence.

America has a black problem.
Blacks have a black problem.

The homemade look of that heart on the family arrangement was a heartbreaker. The pain they must be feeling. And their hope was invested in her.

Mercifully Moochelle dressed conservatively and kept her mouth shut. Finally getting it right.

Michelle Obama did appear to be dressed appropriately for Miss Pendleton´s funeral -- she wore a black day dress with sleeves. Not a fan of the wig, however.

Now that the pattern has been set, I want the family of every shooting victim to appear on WGN to demand that the First Family appear at their funerals too. Chirp, chirp, chirp.

Carney: The Toughest Interview

JAY CARNEY: I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others. And the answer was yes, again because the young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows. But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama

Facebook is unveiling a new service to let users know when a friend is close by. The company said it had consulted with privacy advocates in government ahead of Thursday´s launch, but the service nonetheless invites criticism from privacy advocates who have worried about the amount of information the social network captures about its users. People will have to opt in to the new Nearby Friends feature, and Facebook is forcing users to affirmatively choose if they want to share details about their movements. Nothing will change for users who don’t assertively turn it on, Facebook said. Jules Polonetsky, executive director of the

Following in the footsteps of his boss, Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday joined the photosharing site Instagram, posting four pictures. Keeping in line with the current ´cool´ thing to do on Instagram, Biden´S first photo is a selfie in the back of a limousine with President Barack Obama. The tagline reads ´Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram´ The other three photos are of Biden speaking behind a podium, him getting off Marine Two, the vice presidential helicopter, in Pittsburgh and a somewhat artsy photograph of a pair of Ray Ban aviator sunglasses on a table with

GENEVA – Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine. The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the deal the result of a "good day´s work" but emphasized that the words on paper

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

EXCLUSIVE: Republican Rep. Darrell Issa is ratcheting up pressure on President Obama´s top aides to turn over more documents revealing the extent of the White House´s direct involvement in the botched rollout of the health insurance exchanges, according to a letter to White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler obtained exclusively by Fox News. In the letter transmitted to Ruemmler at the White House Thursday morning, Issa asserts "senior White House officials -- as well as the President -- appear to have been far more personally involved in decision-making related to HealthCare.gov than the White House previously represented.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
