Washington - President Barack Obama plans to travel to Newtown, Connecticut, on Sunday to meet with families of the victims of a Friday school shooting that was one of the deadliest such incidents in the nation´s history. The White House said in a statement Obama will speak at a 7 p.m. EST Sunday interfaith vigil for families of the victims and other students from Sandy Hook Elementary School, which was attacked on Friday by a heavily armed gunman. In his weekly radio and internet address earlier on Saturday, Obama said it was time to "take meaningful action to prevent

Will this interfere with Sunday night football, "60-Mintues"? Oh, the humanity. It´ll be interesting to see what "interfaith" is and what images are visible around 0bama.

No this is wrong. He needs to get his ugly mug and big ears out of these families time of mourning. This guy is a selfish, vain, media hungry pig. Man, for the 4th year in a row I am disgusted with my president.

I do think it is appropriate (even given the fact of a photo op). What is not appropriate is his entourage. Considering the circumstances of what these people have gone through, he should have the guts to go it alone. Take an example of Queen Elizabeth.

You know what, I think he is getting a little bit better at this President thing. I don´t know if it will last, but he shows signs of caring about something other than ideology. Maybe it´s just the shock of election season and it will wear off. But to be fair, I think he is getting slightly better and so is Michelle.

Don´t be ridiculous. EVERY President does this and the families always seem to appreciate that the President of the US, no matter who he is, honors their lost family member.

#5, there were 4 handguns and an assault rifle found in the school the State Police said today. I would call that ´heavily armed´. All victims were killed with the rifle and were each hit from 3-7 times the Medical Examiner said.

So does this mean Obozo will apologize for selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels that killed thousands of women,children and men with? Will Obozo then proceed to arrest himself for his crimes? If so then that would be a positive move in the right direction.

Yes, all Presidents do this. However, THIS President picks and chooses WHICH Americans, which state gets his attention. There is zippity-do-dah for a Marine, who is ALIVE and chained to his bed in a cell in a desperately dangerous Mexican prison this very minute.
Funny how there is no human sympathy or help for a soldier who is being treated so shamefully by an "ally". Oh well, he will enjoy being amongst mostly Obama voters tomorrow.

Since Obama is bringing an entourage, it is clear he plans on being God the Saviour for the grieving families... by declaring a temporary ban on all guns.... that seems like forever.

The 23 states asking to secede need to bond together & form a new nation, based on the constitution.

We´ve got four more years of this nightmare, every oppertunity for the public to idolize him will be taken. The press will continue to fawn, they have no guilt, he is their messiah.
Meanwhile, the country is near collapse, the debt has zoomed beyond repair. Our so called "leaders" are afraid to speak out, scared of being labeled racists.
As the press continues to re-run his comments and say that he wept....all I saw was crocodile tears.

Every American knows Obama has been indoctrinated in the philosophy of "never let a crisis go to waste."
Bill Clinton probably told him to get his rear end in front of the camera ASAP to take advantage of the massacre.

Clinton demonstrated the professional way while leaving the funeral of Ron Brown.

Note how Obama wipes a non-existent tear from the corner of his eye (as the teleprompter instructs), just as Bubba did when he spotted a camera.

He has no business going there just two days after the horrible shooting and grieving parents trying to get their arms around what they just lost.He´s only going there to exploit the tragedy to make a push for gun control,using poor dead kids as a prop.This is shameless beyond words.

The same people supposedly grieving over this from a distance also support abortion on demand and late term abortion.Abortion devalues human life and desensitizes people to the value of life.

Kids are shot all the time by drive by gangbangers and you don´t hear a peep from the left about it because it exposes the foolishness of banning handguns and people still getting them. Bloomberg blames other states for people in NYC for having guns.Nothing to do with the subculture.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

The Pasteur Institute in Paris, France announced this week that it realized it was missing the vials and contacted the country’s National Security Agency of Medicines and Health Products to conduct an investigation on April 8, according to a news release. Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville,

Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation.

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

As pro-Russia protests spread in eastern Ukraine, a strip of striped orange-and-black fabric has become as ubiquitous as the armed men in unmarked military fatigues. Its name is the Ribbon of Saint George. Imbued with history, it’s a powerful symbol in the ongoing information battle over Ukraine. For Russians it´s a mark of allegiance to the state – both the fearsome, expansionist Russian state of old and its modern successor under President Vladimir Putin. When pro-Russia rallies took place last December, seeking to rival the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, very few ribbons were seen.

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

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
