Hollywood Squares
American Spectator, by Daniel J. Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/25/2013 8:00:03 AM

Eva Longoria, Ashley Judd, Nick Cannon, and other beautiful people flocked to Hollywood-for-Ugly-People to attend Barack Obama’s second inauguration. The gift of convincing an audience, or constituents, that you are something that you are not remains a common denominator for success in the Capital and the Entertainment Capital. Superficial people attract one another like magnets. The made-for-television presidency got the inauguration it deserved. Beyoncé lip-synching the Star Spangled Banner reminded America that her business, like the president’s, is show business. If the inauguration offered anything faker than pretend singing, Alicia Keys’ stage-name surname may have been it.

Comments:
This is delightful. Someone finally says what all of us have thought. The second inauguration was a gauche coronation. Indeed.

I might call that the FOURTH inauguration. Funny how it takes a 90 lb. weakling two inaugurations to git´er done. I know the second one this year was because of the date but I think the second one the first time was just an excuse for him to put his hand on the koran and be called by his real name behind closed doors. We should have had a clue about CJ Roberts, and especially after he didn´t make the Zipster present his real birth certificate in December 2008.

The reason superficial people attract each other like magnets is that regular folks with real lives don´t want anything to do with them so they have nowhere else to go.

These people we now know who they are. They will forever have to rely on only half the country to purchase their garbage. Beyonce has permanently branded herself. It´s funny how black folks would have call her a sellout. But it´s their guy so it´s OK. Roger Goodell should know that many will tune out at half time. People will miss the commercials money maker and most importantly, obama´s mouth piece.

Following several years of "constructive dialog" with the LGBT community, the U.S. Justice Department is now training law enforcement officers on how to better understand and help the "transgender community." "It’s clear that such training is as necessary as it is overdue," Associate Attorney General Tony West told a gathering at the Justice Department on Thursday, as DOJ´s Community Relations Service kicked off its new "transgender law enforcement cultural professionalism training." The training will help law enforcement agencies "improve their understanding of the transgender communities they serve and improve their work with those communities," said Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Cole, who

   

 

  


 
Oversight Dems Ask Issa to Call

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson    Original Article

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

Are Republicans starting to change their position on same-sex marriage? Some gay marriage supporters think so. “A 55 percent majority support marriage equality,” states a report accompanying a new TargetPoint-GQRR poll. “While young people are at the vanguard of change, this survey also shows increased support among older voters, Catholics, non-college educated voters, and Republicans.” The poll results were presented at a Thursday kickoff event of Americans for Marriage Equality, a bipartisan group formed with the support of the Human Rights Campaign, a major gay rights organization. The launch coincided with the one year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court

House Republican defends Vladimir Putin:

A top House Republican and former Reagan aide is dismissing claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to restore the Soviet Union, suggesting instead that the Kremlin leader is acting like former President Reagan in helping the cause of democracy in Crimea and Ukraine. According to California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, Putin “is not a communist leader” and his military’s push into neighboring countries “is not a power grab.” Speaking against Thursday’s House approval of a $1 billion aid package to Ukraine, Rohrabacher also warned that the U.S. was spending itself into bankruptcy and that Washington will have to beg

Cheney on waterboarding: ´If I would

Former Vice President Dick Cheney late Thursday said he did not regret pushing enhanced interrogation techniques under the Bush administration. “If I would have to do it all over again, I would,” Cheney said at American University, according to its student newspaper The Eagle. “The results speak for themselves.” Three people were waterboarded when he was vice president, Cheney said. The technique entails pouring large quantities of water over a person’s nose and mouth, which is meant to simulate drowning. “Some people called it torture. It wasn’t torture,” Cheney told the campus’s student-run TV station. A group of students and people attending the event

Imagine for a moment that you hail from one of the most famous families in international finance. Your father is worth $20 billion. And on account of his largesse, your last name is as synonymous with Democratic politics as Roosevelt or Kennedy. Seeking your generosity, candidates come to you, hat in hand. Your concerns, they tell you, will be their concerns—so long as you contribute at their next fundraiser. And then, in your early 40s, you decide that this whole system is messed up. That it is you, and people like you, the rarest of the one percenters, who have

"This is my last election," President Obama said in words caught on an open mic. "After my election, I have more flexibility." He was speaking in Seoul, South Korea, in March 2012, almost exactly two years ago, to Dmitry Medvedev, then in his last year as Vladimir Putin´s stand-in president of Russia. The subject was missile defense, and Obama was apparently seeking time to assuage Russia´s objections that a proposed U.S. missile defense system, sited in Romania, Poland, Turkey and Spain, would not be aimed at Russian missiles. Earlier, in September 2009, Obama canceled missile defense installations in Poland and

Obama White House Continues to Swindle
Young People Through "Affordable" Care Act

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last month, First Lady Michelle Obama called young people "knuckleheads" for refusing to sign up for Obamacare. As the data and numbers on Obamacare continue to be analyzed, especially for young people, it appears the real knuckleheads are those who think millenials can actually afford health insurance under the "Affordable" Care Act. Forbes Contributor Scott Gottlieb is out with a piece today detailing the cost of Obamacare health plans for young people making between $25,000 and $45,000 per year. The prices are astounding.

RNC chair to Ebony magazine: Apologize

Yesterday, a Twitter fight exploded when Ebony senior editor Jamilah Lemieux dismissed RNC deputy press secretary Raffi Williams as “a white dude trying to tell me how to do this Black thing.” However, Raffi is not a “white dude,” as those of us who know him can attest, but is African-American. Lemieux later offered an apology of sorts for not checking his Twitter profile more closely, but as Twitchy noted, that was hardly the salient issue at hand. Today, the RNC decided to escalate the situation. RNC chair Reince Priebus wants an apology from Ebony, and has published an open letter

Democrats turn their fire on Koch

With their grip on the Senate in danger and with few winning issues to run on, Democrats are trying to turn the midterms into a referendum on the Koch brothers. Charles Koch, 78, and David Koch, 73, who run the second-largest privately held company in the country, are pouring a chunk of their vast fortune into helping Republicans take back the Senate. The billionaire MIT graduates have been hugely successful in building Koch Industries, a company founded by and named after their father, into a multinational conglomerate with $115 billion in annual revenues and 100,000 employees, 60,000 of whom work

White House ´confident´ in O-Care website

Just days before the Affordable Care Act deadline, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the administration is “confident” the healthcare website will be able to handle the volume of users in the final push. Speaking to reporters as President Obama traveled to Saudi Arabia, Carney would not say how many sign-ups they are expecting in the final few days. The deadline for signing up is Monday, though the administration says people who have attempted to start an account before March 31 can still enroll in the exchanges after the deadline. Carney did not make any announcements about what events Obama would

Harry Reid: People Aren’t Educated

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors.

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.
