Mommy´s girl grown up:
How Malia Obama has blossomed
from an awkward teen to
America´s next style icon as she
follows in the First Lady´s footsteps

Daily Mail (UK), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/22/2012 3:16:09 PM

Looking every bit as poised and elegant as her mother, the long-limbed first daughter has taken the awkward out of adolescence with ease. In the weeks since election night, the emerging styles of the Obama daughters, and especially Malia, has taken center stage - the 14-year-old blossoming from the President´s wide-eyed ´baby´ into a self-assured young woman who has inherited her mother´s confidence, bold fashion sense and looks. Wearing a shiny blue full skirt from ASOS with a neon pink Zara belt, and J. Crew flats, Malia proved she has inherited her mother´s classic but bold sensibility

Methinks a vomit alert would not be inappropriate on this one.

It always amazes me how the left turn their politicians into rock stars, or demi-gods. They worship every hair on their heads, never hold them accountable for anything.

Fine.

Now we gotta put up with four more years of not only being bedazzled by Michelle My Belle Obama´s high-priced coutiere, but we gotta hear about the kid´s expensive tastes as well.

Too bad they aren´t paying for their $800 sneakers and $3500 dresses, or they might single-handedly do more for economic growth than hubby/daddy ever would do.

For those of you out there who think it is wrong to attack some young teen because the White House, probably at the instructions of Mama 0bama, put Malia in our face by claiming both have the real style sense that we should follow, you´re wrong. I have no problem with family pics and portraits, but saying she is a role model to young girls because of her Father´s job is way over the top.

I don´t believe it is an attack to say that this writer is blind. Or just another psychophant.

The most attractive girls are those who look pleasant. Not the sullen ones.

And she is the spitting image of her father.

There is not one single attractive Liberal/Democrat in public office.

No attack. Just saying Madam Queen is a Fashion Victim who most often wears the wrong clothes for the occasion, ill-fitting (including too tight), and garish. The first Nickolodeon first lady is stuck in her teens. Maybe Malia will end up teaching mamma to dress?

Anything atributed to "staff" is usually something so awful you don´t want to put your name to it.

That picture of mommmy and daughter in their pedal pushers was enough to do me in. You say someone has a great sense of color when you don´t want to say that an outfit makes them look cheap or fat.

The young lady would be quite striking if she didn´t have her father´s perpetual chin-in-the-air look of scorn for those around her.

I won´t pick on the girl and I wish her well, but for "staff" to insist that she inherited her remarkable sense of style to make her America´s next style icon makes me wonder if we´re talking about the same president´s wife. Surely they jest! Somewhere in the article there´s bound to be a hidden happy face or a "NOT" or "JUST TEASING TO SEE IF READERS ARE PAYING ATTENTION." There are way too many actual photos of the current First Lady floating around to refute the claim that she´s a fashion icon, poised and elegant. But then, remembering how many Americans voted for her husband in the recent election, it makes me wonder if a large segment of the population has any sense themselves, fashion or otherwise.

She definitely has Barack Obama´s body. As to her looks, I think the media judges women on looks too much. When I say media, I include women in the media who harp on and on about women´s looks. I never hear men harping on and on about other men´s looks unless they´re some batty queen.

At the end of the day, what you see with women in public is basically something that has layers of foundation, tons of mascara and rivers of lipstick. Where did au naturel go?

I´m sure glad that my food from yesterday has finally digested because I feel like I´m going to hurl. Not only is the Odummer loving press slobbering all over the First Wookie with their stupid stories about her looks, fashion sense and other drivel but now they are shoving the older of the two ewoks on us. From the looks of the pics the Malaria is certainly taking after the Klingon in every way and trust me folks that is NOT a good thing. And just a note for you people who think I´m being too harsh all I have to say is this. Everytime the media sees fit to shove the two Odumbo urchins in my face I will show them the same difference that they showed the Bush twins and the Palin kids. Have a nice day.

As someone said, do not read the Daily Mail as you might read other media.

Celebrities, the royals, and fashion are the DM catnip. They can´t control themselves.

But parody is often in there. They understand the daggers and use it.

And on hard news they will often take on stories the US LSM buries.

The Hill (Washington DC), by Peter Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 10:23:41 PM     Post Reply
President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Sarah Palin to Headline SHE-PAC
Iowa Rally for Joni Ernst
Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 9:25:33 PM     Post Reply
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will headline a SHE-PAC rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 27th for conservative Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst, who has taken a two-point lead over a liberal Republican businessman who had been leading before Palin endorsed Ernst. The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall.

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

House Democrats, who are stepping up the pressure on Republicans to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation, said Tuesday the Obama administration is getting ready to take executive action on the matter very soon. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks. And then there are some broader policy changes that will be coming

WASHINGTON — In wake of two mass shootings this month, Attorney General Eric Holder urged Congress Tuesday to authorize $15 million for training state and local law enforcement officers to confront so-called active shooters. "In the face of this urgent and growing threat – when the lives of innocent people are at stake – those who stand on the front lines need our full and unwavering support," Holder said in a video message posted on the Justice Department´s website. "This critical funding would help the Justice Department ensure that America´s police officers have the tools and guidance they need to

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
