Barbra Streisand Calls Obama
´Transparent,´ Rips McCain
on Benghazi-Gate

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/2/2012 10:26:20 PM

Barbra Streisand, noted political scholar and high school graduate, cannot shut her yap when it comes to waxing eloquent on politics. At her favorite watering hole, The Huffington Post, Streisand castigates Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for “fueling the flames of a supposed cover-up by the White House, Secretary of State and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice.” Streisand likely had someone ghostwrite her article, as she is notorious for not knowing how to spell. Remember her infamous memo describing George W. Bush as a “C” student, where she misspelled 11 words, including four in one sentence?

Comments:
If you´re bored and need to reset your BS Meter, there´s no better way than having an article about Barbra Streisand. This is literally one person who should keep her mouth shut when not singing.

BS Meter - PING!!!

She´s like Hanoi Janie -- trying to become relevant as they close out their lives....

Only 2 things transparent to me here (pre coffee). One is the huge empty space where her brains should be, and 2, Obama has been transparently clear in his determination to achieve as much damage, chaos and disunity in this country as he can before he goes. That is, if he does.

How can she say that about our guy McCain? He´s all so moderate and everything -- all the voters love him! He has nothing but friends across that aisle. What is going on here?

Oh my, I´ll have to pause and collect myself, then write a note of inquiry to the RNC this morning, asking them to please explain this apparent anomaly in our Party image. We can´t have Barbra Streisand going around saying such things! What will the Europeans think?

Oh yes, surely it´s a mere anomaly. Our guy McCain was a prisoner of war, you know... He has that lovely wife and family... He... He... He takes hikes! Oh deary me...

I bought all of her many great albums over the first years of her singing career. I also thought she was a rather good movie actress. I’m no hypocrite.

So much for full disclosure.

I believe it may have been Barbra Streisand who inspired the most appropriately titled Laura Ingraham’s book, “Shut Up and Sing.”

As a political pundit, her initials say it all.

Finally, kudos to the author of this article for a classic opening sentence! Bravo!

Does Barbara Streisand truly believe that she speaks for a "majority of Americans"? Thank you Senator McCain for your sacrifice to our great country and for being the voice of those slaughtered on 9.11.2012. May the families of our fallen patriots though your efforts know the truth of what happened to their loved ones.

" But now, even when the Obama Administration is being transparent and forthcoming, even as they are wanting and willing to learn from the mistakes of Benghazi,
where unfortunately four people died, Senator McCain refuses to back down."

They are " wanting " to learn ?
Streisand declares that the murders of two Navy SEALS , a former Air Force officer and an Ambassador was simply " unfortunate ".
Maybe Streisand can tell us where Obama was on the night of the attack .
The only hard fact we know is that Obama went to bed when many , including the Ambassador ,
were still missing .
Obama has been purposefully vague about the exact time he was made aware of the attack .
He may have been listening to Streisand tunes while watching a Judy Garland movie .
Maybe Streisand can also tell the public why
Obama refused to send help .
After all , he is the Commander in Chief .
Since Streisand knows so much about Obama´s activities on 9/11 , it´s entirely possible she was also in the Situation Room
with Beyonce and Jay Z .

Used to see her at a big antique show in the 80´s. She wore bedroom slippers and a house coat.
She has to tour even at her age when she
thinks she is running out of money.
However Mariah Carey works on her music and production too so that her name gets on the label. the she gets her share of the royalties. so I heard that if she tours, it is more "Voluntary"

The NSA denies it knew
of the Heartbleed bug
Washington Post, by Brian Fung    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/11/2014 5:55:14 PM     Post Reply
The NSA is disavowing its knowledge of the Heartbleed security vulnerability after a Bloomberg report suggested that the spy agency had exploited it for at least two years. “NSA was not aware of the recently identified vulnerability in OpenSSL, the so-called Heartbleed vulnerability, until it was made public in a private-sector cybersecurity report," NSA spokesperson Vanee Vines told The Post. "Reports that say otherwise are wrong.” The White House and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence echoed that statement Friday, saying neither the NSA nor any other part of the U.S. government knew about Heartbleed

NSA Said to Exploit Heartbleed
Bug for Intelligence for Years
Bloomberg News, by Michael Riley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/11/2014 4:00:24 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said. The NSA’s decision to keep the bug secret in pursuit of national security interests threatens to renew the rancorous debate over the role of the government’s top computer experts. Heartbleed appears to be one of the biggest glitches in the Internet’s history, a flaw in the basic security of as many as two-thirds of the world’s websites. Its discovery and the creation of a fix

The channel is disbanding its sports unit and scaling back its social-media-driven show The Stream from a daily show to a once-a-week program. "The majority of people affected were freelancers and many of the staff either came from the sports group or from The Stream," Dawn Bridges, executive vp corporate communications, tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Washington - William J. Burns, a career diplomat who led the Obama administration’s back-channel negotiations with Iran, is planning to step down from his job as the State Department’s second-ranking official in October, administration officials said on Friday. Now the deputy secretary of state, Mr. Burns has been a trusted diplomat in both Republican as well as Democratic administrations. He has twice delayed his retirement, most recently at the request of President Obama.

Tony Abbott says rescue teams have homed in on signals they are now certain belong to the black box flight recorder from missing Malaysian flight MH370. The Prime Minister, who is in Shanghai, spoke after an aviation expert claimed the breakthrough discovery had been made. Mr Abbott said they were now engaged in a race against time to find the black box as the signal starts to fade. He will meet personally tonight with Chinese President Xi Jinping to update him on the latest efforts to find the black box, hinting it would soon be located. “We have very much narrowed down the search area...we have now had a series of detections,

Perth, Australia - Australia’s prime minister says searchers hunting for the missing Malaysian jetliner are confident underwater signals that have been picked up are coming from the jet’s black box. Tony Abbott told reporters while on an official visit to China that Australian authorities are confident they know the location of the black box from the plane that disappeared without a trace on March 8 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. The plane’s black boxes, or flight data and cockpit voice recorders, could help solve the mystery of why Flight 370 veered so far off course.

Budget Chief Is Choice

Washington - Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, pop. 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy parts of the federal bureaucracy as secretary of health and

If you really want to appreciate the good work that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and the House Republicans did Thursday in passing their budget, consider the Pencil Story. A friend of mine teaches a class that includes a lot of children from families caught up in the government welfare system, a system that encourages dependency and discourages self-reliance. She told me that the students sometimes come to class on test day without even bringing a pencil. Without a pencil, the kids face getting a zero on the test, but that, my teacher-friend said, was the point. Because they know the public schools will push them along

In an interview Thursday with CBS Radio's Dan Raviv, CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves said that "Late Show" viewers can expect to see Colbert be himself in his new role.

Jerusalem - Israel’s capacity to keep tabs on Iran was boosted Wednesday night after the successful launch into space of its 10th and most advanced satellite to date. The satellite, which Israelis call Ofek 10 (Ofek meaning dawn in Hebrew), entered into orbit around the Earth in the early hours of Thursday morning and immediately started transmitting signals back, according to information shared by Israel’s Ministry of Defense and Israel Aerospace Industries.

Black female lawmakers have now weighed in on an Army controversy over what one soldier calls “racially biased” hairstyle regulations. Sixteen female members of the Congressional Black Caucus signed a letter Thursday to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, stating that the changes are “discriminatory rules targeting soldiers who are women of color,” the Associated Press reported. The rule in question, Army Regulation 670-1, bans hairstyles that require twists and dreadlocks, among other options preferred by minority soldiers. Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs of the Georgia National Guard, has petitioned the White House to overturn the policy.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and
