Posted By:JoniTx, 11/26/2012 7:45:34 PM

One perk of playing basketball for Oregon State University has been White House visits for Joseph Burton, a senior and member of the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians. OSU’s head basketball coach, Craig Robinson, is the brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, and this year the team shared a Thanksgiving meal Thursday, Nov. 22, at the White House with the First Family. Burton, 22, who plays forward/center for the Beavers, and his teammates arrived in the capital on Tuesday, Nov. 20. The next day they went to the Capital Area Food Bank to stuff bags with food for needy families.

Another "secret party/meal" at the W.H. The most transparent administration in history is still hiding the truth from taxpayers. I read that 5 different pies were served, now I find out that it was 6 different pies. Their greed knows no bounds.

More proof that this family does indeed cost the American taxpayers 1.4 billion dollars a year to maintain them in the style to which they have become accustomed.

A flag and 15 yards for a slur

Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Or so we once thought. America’s schoolyards were tough places to play in the old days, where kids settled their arguments with skinned knuckles, bloody noses and a minimum of grown-up interference. But that was when the well-prepared scholar arrived for the first day of school with a Big Chief tablet, a clutch of Eberhard Faber No. 2 pencils, a bag lunch (if he could avoid the lunchroom), and an apple for the teacher. Now it’s against the law to bribe a teacher, an iPad mini has

Ted Cruz: We’ll ‘turn this country around’

(Video) Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told tea party activists on Thursday that he is “filled with the promise that we’re going to turn this country around” after legislative fights over drones, guns and Obamacare last year. The freshman Republican received a hero’s welcome at a Tea Party Patriots-hosted fifth anniversary event for the movement in Washington, where he discussed the three issues. “If you listen to the media, if you listen to Democrats — although I repeat myself — they will say the fight to stop Obamacare did not succeed,” said Cruz, who pushed to defund the president’s signature health

Sen. Ted Cruz said Thursday that Republicans have a good chance of having a “surprising” pickup in the Senate in 2014, perhaps on the scale of the 2010 sea-change election. “I think 2014 is poised to be a very, very strong Republican year,” Cruz told a crowd of more than 150 attendees at POLITICO’s Playbook Breakfast. “I think if the election were held today, Republicans would take the Senate. … I think it is a possibility that it is an election year on the order of the magnitude of 2010.” (Snip) But Cruz warned that if immigration reform passes the

Paula Deen´s name will soon be proudly plastered on a new restaurant, despite many believing it had been dragged too far through the mud to return. The TV chef´s comeback trail appears to be in full swing, and it´s leading her to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where she will open the doors to ´Paula Deen´s Kitchen´ in the summer. A hub for tourists visiting Dolly Parton´s ´Dollywood´ theme park and the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge draws about 10 million vacationers a year - and Deen hopes to cash in.

Scientists have discovered a military fortress previously thought to have been destroyed under the prison yard at Alcatraz, the San Francisco Bay former prison and current tourist attraction. Using radar technology, researchers from Texas A&M University found the remains of military buildings and tunnels dating back to 1850. The fort was built as San Francisco´s fortunes boomed with the discovery of gold in California and it proved to be of strategic value at the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861.

As an enthusiastic fan of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), I am sorry that an ongoing project prevented me from participating in PJM’s Cruz symposium. But this relevant news just came over the transom, so I thought I’d at least pass it along. As I’ve previously noted, Obama administration officials have been working the codify in federal law the IRS harassment and obstruction of conservative organizations that President Obama and Attorney General Holder claimed to find “intolerable,” “inexcusable,” “outrageous,” and “unacceptable” back when the scandal first came to light. As usual, it has been Senator Cruz leading the charge to try

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder was evaluated and released from an area hospital Thursday after suffering faintness and shortness of breath during a morning meeting, officials said. "As a precaution, the attorney general was taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center to undergo further evaluation,” spokesman Brian Fallon said in a prepared statement. At the hospital Holder, who was described as "alert," conferred with doctors who sent him home to rest at 1:15 p.m., according to an agency representative. Former aide Matt Miller said that Holder, 63, takes the stairs to his fifth-floor office at Justice Department headquarters without losing

In a witty, optimistic, and passionate speech that showed why he is the politician in D.C. that most resonates with the Tea Party and conservative grassroots, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday said he believed Obamacare will be completely repealed. "I am absolutely convinced that we are going to repeal every single word of Obamacare," Cruz, a potential presidential contender who is leading among Tea Party voters in nearly every 2016 presidential poll, said to a standing ovation. Speaking at an event honoring the five-year anniversary of the Tea Party movement that was sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots, Cruz

It´s a routine unfamiliar to many kids across the country. "Every morning when I was in school I´d put on my vest, coat and go to school," 19-year-old James Adams said. It wasn´t a fancy, fashionable vest. It was bullet proof, and he said it was a part of his daily morning routine. "It´s hard. Sometimes I might take a different route home depending on time of day when I know gang-bangers are outside" he said. It is the rough-and-tumble existence for many young black men like Adams all over the country where the street life of crime, violence and

The conventional wisdom being bandied about in the press is that Republican office holders, reflecting the views of their constituents, are obstinate, uncompromising, and backward-thinking. A recent CBS News/New York Times poll found, however, that precisely the opposite is the case. On a range of issues, that survey found that partisan Republican voters are more willing to compromise a range of issues than their Democratic counterparts. CBS/NYT pollsters asked Republican, Democratic, and independent voters if it was “possible” for them to consider voting for a candidate that did not share their view on a variety of issues. On subjects ranging

With five years having passed since the first tea party rally in 2009, MSNBC host Ronan Farrow invited two liberal guests on his program to discuss the impact the tea party has had on American politics and its potential to continue to shape events. Tara Dowdell, a political strategist and self-described progressive, warned her fellow liberals that it would be a mistake to write off the tea party because they are likely to have an outsize impact on the coming midterm elections. Farrow began by briefly recapping the history of the tea party. Afterword, he asked University of Lehigh professor

Russia gives all its gold medalists

If you´re in Russia, and you´re a medalist at the Sochi Games, life is pretty good for you right now, with cash and a new car waiting for you. Russia gave all of its gold medalists in the Sochi Games $120,000, plus a brand-new Mercedes GL SUV. This led to a bit of logistical leapfrogging with athletes like Julia Lipnitskaya, who is only 15 and not yet of legal driving age in Russia. (She got a personal driver to go along with the car.) Silver medalists got $76,000 and a Mercedes ML, and bronze medalists got $52,000 and a Mercedes

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Call it what you want -- anti-gay or religious rights -- but if Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signs a controversial bill, you might not be calling Arizona the home of the 2015 Super Bowl. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, S.B. 1062, is the current controversy du jour out of Arizona, and the National Football League is with the opposition. “Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today. “We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

PHOENIX -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed Wednesday a controversial bill that would have allowed businesses to deny services to gays and others based on religious beliefs. The veto of Senate Bill 1062 will likely be met with praise from Arizona´s business community, which called on Brewer to veto it citing potential damage to Arizona´s economy. The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses. Three Republican state senators also joined thee call for Brewer to veto the bill. On Wednesday, it was reported that

Secretary of State John Kerry today warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay clear of the political turmoil in Ukraine, adding that the U.S. doesn´t view the international tussle over the democratic movement in Kiev as a continuation of the Cold War. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States. This is not ‘Rocky IV´, believe me. We don´t see it that way,” Kerry said in a reference to the popular film in which Sylvester Stallone’s character is pitted against a Soviet bully. Appearing on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Kerry urged Putin to be “very careful” as he plots

Shoigu in remarks carried by Russian news agencies also revealed that the military was also conducting talks with Algeria and Cyprus.

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden blamed “hatred” as the motivating force behind voter identification laws in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas. Biden wants new laws to block “former slave holding states in the south” from discrimination against blacks and other minorities. Biden, speaking at a reception at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., in celebration of African-American History Month, said that, "These guys never go away. Hatred never, never goes away. The zealotry of those who wish to limit the franchise cannot be smothered by reason." Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee (I) would take issue with

A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
