Why was Michelle Obama
at the Oscars?

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 2/25/2013 9:17:32 AM

It was the average too-long, unfunny, over-produced Academy Awards TV show and then, after suffering through the 10-hour (well, it seemed like it) show, there was the first lady. In a ball gown. With military service personnel in dress uniform behind her. She declared of the Best Picture nominees, “They reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage within ourselves.” Alas, none of the films nor her aides reminded her to mention the military, not those personnel behind her nor those serving overseas,

Considering how much money and propaganda service the Hollywood community gave the Dems, I think they should have the Oscars at the White House next year and just be done with it.

Why the military? At an Oscar presentation? What sort of effort is being made here to co-opt us and the military here?

During the final run-up to the announcement of Best Picture two years ago, the producers of the Academy Awards gambled by playing the stirring address of King George VI (Colin Firth) as background to a silent montage of other best film contenders. Had another picture won, the moment would have been not just anti-climactic but hugely disappointing. This year, the unmistakeable symbolism of a black first lady surrounded by U.S. troops in Army dress blues suggested strongly a belief that "Lincoln" was the winner. One can almost imagine that the ultimate surprise would have been marked by an appearance of a President who had been waiting just off-camera. It would have been one of those celebrated Hollywood moments that would have been replayed for decades to come. Unlike the dramatic victory of "The King´s Speech," the scene of Mrs. Obama declaring the winner to be "Argo" must have deflated both the White House and its cheerleaders at the Academy.

Why do those overpaid people in Hollywood think they are doing something honorable and brave by making a picture? None of them have done anything honorable in their lives, all the ones who have are gone now is just a bunch of narcissists boobs who couldn´t figure a way out of a paper bag unless they had a script. Heck they can´t even pick out a dress or suit without help, all those stylists they have on and that question, who are you wearing?

I´m with #2.
The snarky comments from the leftists at the bottom of the original article are disgusting.
Most of them are slams on Jennifer Rubin being Jewish, and her support for Israel.
So what does that have to do with Jennifer´s comments on Moochele hogging up attention at AA ceremony?

The Obamas are needy. They need to be liked, they need constant press, no matter how trivial, and they need to feel as if their mere appearance at an event like this tops it off. They have no shame.

An honorable President and First Lady would hold a dinner to honor military Veterans. Better still on the same night as the Oscars to put in the face of Hollywood real deserving honorees.

Since we are cutting the Pentagon´s budget maybe first on the list will be the fine military who are assigned to "stand in back of moockie when she appears at the oscars". The sight from behind could be described as evil as water boarding

#8; you have to remember 2 things about the military, that make it easy for the WH to exploit:

1. If you order them, they will appear at 11 PM, EST. Civilians can´t be ordered like that, and most would find something else to do on a Sunday night, if it was "suggested" they be in the WH in formal dress.

2. They don´t have to rush out and by tuxes, since they all have that snazzy formal military dress uniform. (Which, by the way, they have to buy, personally, as part of their duties at the White House.)

Obviously the Obamas were hoping for the movie Lincoln to be the winner so that Barack Obama could have made his appearance with a canned speech.

That did not work out, but what would the Obamas have done if the movie Zero Dark Thirty had won, with all it´s water-boarding connotations?

Naomi Wolf Attacks Me As A Zionist Agent
For Criticizing Brandeis Feminists
Breitbart Big Peace, by Phyllis Chesler    Original Article

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

F. Reid Buckley, a novelist, columnist, founder of a school of public speaking and, in family lore, the most literary of Aloise and William F. Buckley Sr.’s 10 children, including former Senator James L. Buckley and the conservative commentator William F. Buckley Jr., died on Monday in hospice care in Columbia, S.C. He was 83. The cause was cancer, his son William Huntting Buckley said. Mr. Buckley had lived in Camden, S.C., since the early 1970s. He was often mistaken for his brother William, the founder of the conservative magazine National Review. The brothers not only looked alike. They also shared political

   

 



 
Why Obama Can´t Explain Himself

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

Brain Surgery Patient´s Obamacare
Plan Denies Meds, Drops Doctors
Breitbart Big Government, by Wynton Hall    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/17/2014 8:27:21 AM     Post Reply
A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan. "I´ve been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day." Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia. Even though the Obamacare plan she purchased assured her that she was covered, her insurance card was denied when she went to fill her prescriptions. Then she learned that none of her

Bundy Supporter Compares Rancher to

An ex-Arizona sheriff and supporter of Cliven Bundy spoke out to defend the Nevada rancher in a radio interview this week, flagged by Right Wing Watch, and he compared Bundy to Rosa Parks while decrying federal authorities for exhibiting Nazi-like tactics by saying they’re just following orders. Richard Mack told radio host Steve Deace that Bundy took a stand against the government “trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks” and said this moment is exactly like “Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.” When Deace brought up the “just following orders” justification that

Crimea is in Moscow’s hands. Some of Kiev’s army has surrendered parts of eastern Ukraine without a fight. And now there are signs that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have picked his next targets: First a small breakaway state in Moldova, west of Ukraine, where thousands of Moscow’s troops are already stationed; then its close neighbor Odessa, Ukraine’s third-largest city and its largest remaining port, where pro-Russian and pro-government groups are tangling. If forces loyal to Putin can successfully disrupt Odessa, it could effectively cut the county of Ukraine in two.

Ten Welfare-Reform Lessons
National Review Online, by Robert Doar    Original Article

New York City’s welfare system is managed out of a boxy 25-story office building on Water Street in Lower Manhattan. Approximately 5,000 employees work there, directing government programs that provide billions of dollars of taxpayer-funded assistance to the poor and near-poor. A solid majority of the workers at 180 Water Street are African-American or Latino; their voter registration is almost certainly overwhelmingly Democratic; and all but about 300 of them are union members. But from 1995 until this past December, the people who worked in New York’s principal social-services agency were leading one of the most conservative and successful welfare

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

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
