#JediMindMeld drama continues
CNN, by Gregory Wallace

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/2/2013 8:04:34 PM

One person described it as the “ultimate nerd sin.” Others didn’t think it’s so bad. But President Barack Obama took heat online for tangling the Jedi mind trick with the Vulcan mind meld. Obama said Friday he didn´t have the power to "somehow do a Jedi mind meld with these folks and convince them to do what´s right" on reaching a deal to avert the forced budget cuts known in Washington as the sequester. The comment came in response to a question from CNN chief White House correspondent Jessica Yellin after the president met with top congressional leaders

Continually demonstrating his complete lack of knowledge of American stuff. You wonder if he doesn´t tuck himself into his cocoon at night for an alien hive-mind meld.

I mean, everybody who is an American, or even if you´re a ferangi who has been out of the country for years, you should know about the Jedi Mind Trick. Was he always this dense and slow on the uptake?

FTA George Takei has to retract his initial Facebook post. By the way, Takei likens Republicans to Klingons.

"George Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on “Star Trek,” initially posted this quip to Facebook: “A ‘Jedi mind meld’ Mr. President? Really? One more like that and I will Spock you like a hurricane.”

He later took that post down and came to Obama’s defense in an interview on MSNBC."

# 1 Bingo !
New York Times reporter Janny Scott penned a biography of Obama´s mother that got scant attention from, as Michael Walsh calls our
twentysomething media -the Juicebox Mafia.
In " A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama´s Mother " Scott detailed how bizarre and dysfunctional Obama´s childhood was.
His pet was an orangutang named Tata.
Mine was a mixed breed mutt we called Tippy.
Obama was raised in Indonesia by a transvestite nanny named Evie who would arrive in the morning in male attire, but, he/she would leave in the evenings dressed as a woman.
" Neighbors recalled that they often saw Evie leave the house in the evening fully made up
and dressed in drag."
Most of American boys played soldier with plastic men , built snow forts and played Little League.
Their babysitters were female teenagers.
They were not raised by men dressed as women.
Evie the male /female would make Barry laugh by playing
with the make up and lipstick
belonging to Obama´s mother-Stanley Ann.
My Mother , as most American boys had an appropriate woman´s name.
Man / woman Evie would sleep in the same bed as Barry.
Obama was abandoned by his African father,
partially raised in Indonesia by his Muslim stepfather and a gay , transvestite nanny ,
then abandoned by his white mother and raised in Hawaii by distant and allegedly racist white grandparents.
This guy doesn´t have a clue what it means to be an American , a normal human being or a man.

Did NOT read the article and won´t. The fact that CNN even comments on this as a ´news´ item only shows what idiots they think WTP are. We manage to get all wee weed up over inane statements such as this trip by Two Won and ignore the more important aspects of the ´fight´. GIVE ME A BREAK He said it; he states many dumb, stupid things. How about those 57 states? or the fact that he wishes to steal from US and spread it around to his less fortunate brothers?

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin. The article featured several recordings of the governor. Some believe what Martinez is heard saying could jeopardize her political aspirations.

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

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. 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

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

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

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

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

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. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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.
