President Barack Obama had a quiet dinner with former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday night, but there was no sign of Michelle. Mr Obama´s spokesman Josh Earnest announced that the trio had dinner together on Friday night, and it comes as little surprise that he needed a little time to vent to like-minded politicians that evening as it was the night that the sequester went into effect. This dinner kicked off a handful of other relaxed meals that the President has scheduled over the past few days, as he tried to ease relations
If he would ever do the right thing, maybe he wouldn´t have to hide out with his pals to ease his conscience. I wonder what all these relaxed meals are costing the taxpayers. I can see he is really sacrificing.
At the beginning of his run for potus (2004-2007)she made it abundantly clear that she and her daughters detested obama. Someone got their hands on her and trained her to be one heck of an actress. Now that the elections are over, she doesn´t have to put the act on.
But..... Hillary was the most competent and least objectionable member of the current regime. And If I had to choose between the Obama s and Clinton s, I would choose the Clinton s in a New York second.
She was still in another room attending manners lessons that include, but aren´t limited to: how to eat with a fork, why elbows don´t belong on tables, stop chewing with your mouth open, don´t straddling a chair with the chair back turned to the table...Mooch basics she never mastered.
Speaking before a crucial meeting at the United Nations between Iran´s foreign minister and his counterparts from six world powers, including John Kerry, the US secretary of state, Mr Rouhani said Tehran wanted a quick resolution to the nuclear question. "The only way forward is for a timeline to be inserted into the negotiations that´s short--and wrap it up. That is a decision of my government, that short is necessary to settle the nuclear file," he told the Washington Post. [Snip] The president said that he was "fully empowered to finalise the nuclear talks", directly addressing question marks among Western
The Most Rev Justin Welby said that there had been more than 80 Christian “martyrs” in the last few days alone. He was speaking about the bombing of All Saints Anglican church in Peshawar, Pakistan, in which 85 were killed and more than 200 injured. [Snip] Christian communities which have existed “in many cases since the days of Saint Paul” are now under threat in countries such as Syria and Egypt, he said. Last month around 100 Christian sites were attacked amid the turmoil in Egypt, with 42 churches burnt to the ground. Ancient Christian communities in Syria have also
Some commonly prescribed statins can impair memory, scientists have found. Between six and seven million people in the UK take the medicines every day to lower ‘bad cholesterol’ in the blood. But after starting the treatment, some patients complain that their memory is affected. Last year, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) insisted all manufacturers list in their side effects that statins can affect cognitive function. Scientists at the University of Bristol tested the effects of two commonly prescribed statins--pravastatin and atorvastatin--on rats. Pravastatin, with the brand name Pravachol, was found to have adverse effects on working and recognition
A government watchdog group has sued the U.S. State Department for records showing that Human Abedin, the one-time adviser to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had a sweetheart deal that allowed her to keep her salary while cashing in on the side with a lucrative private-sector consulting contract that could have presented glaring conflicts of interest. Judicial Watch, famous for its litigation over long-languishing Freedom Of Information Act requests, filed suit Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, arguing that State has been sitting on a FOIA demand for months. In late May, the group asked the State
Samuel L. Jackson has blasted Barack Obama for ´promoting mediocrity´ in the United States by ´dumbing down´ the way he speaks to ordinary Americans. In an expletive-filled tirade about--of all things--grammar, Jackson told the President to ´be f*****g presidential.´ The Holywood legend, who publicly backed Obama in 2008 and 2012, questioned why the Harvard-educated former law professor chooses to drop the letter ´g´ from the end of his words. In an astonishing rant, Jackson, 64, said that the President was trying too hard to ´relate´ to normal people instead of being true to who he really is.
Picture the scene if you can bear to. A bustling shopping precinct where a group of men, women and children are surrounded by armed men. As one of the terrorists moves among them, he demands that the person quailing in front of him names the mother of Jesus or recites the Lord’s Prayer. “Our Father which art in Heaven,” says one woman. She is spared. Her neighbour, a Muslim boy, racks his brain for any line of the Bible, anything he has heard in school or on TV. But it’s too late. The boy is shot through the head; put
The Islamic militants who stormed the Kenyan mall rented a shop inside the complex apparently to store a cache of guns and explosives before the attack, it was claimed today. The Kenyan Interior Ministry said the terror group may have had control of the store for three months leading up to the siege which has left as many as 72 shoppers dead. Law enforcement officials believe the arsenal of weapons used in the atrocity were smuggled in, which suggests they may have been kept inside the shop during that time. The claims were made as Kenya began a forensic investigation inside the mall
Ted Cruz may not be a household name in the UK, but he is a rising star in the American conservative movement, and a key figure to watch for the 2016 presidential race. The Princeton and Harvard-educated Senator from Texas is making waves in Washington, with his marathon speech on the floor of the Senate against Obamacare. [Snip] He is a conviction politician who takes a clear stand for conservative values, and isn’t afraid to take on the Establishment of his own party. He is increasingly popular with grassroots Republicans, who see him as a figure who is unwilling to
As time passes, the more it becomes apparent, as it should have been from the start, that the Russian "triumph" over America on the chemical weapons deal in Syria was an illusion. Vladimir Putin is driving Russia ever deeper into a mire in Syria. The conflict is repeatedly compared to the Iraq war, but the comparison with Afghanistan is much closer. Some have called it "Iran´s Vietnam" but there´s a chance it may become Russia´s Afghanistan all over again. President Obama´s decision to call off air and missile strikes in return for a chemical weapons deal may have been a
The First Lady lunched with a princess today, when Princess Charlene of Monaco joined a luncheon in Harlem, New York. Wearing a sleeveless white, tailored dress the Princess was among about 50 wives of dignitaries at the UN General Assembly who joined Michelle Obama for lunch. The Princess, who would have been Grace Kelly´s daughter-in-law joined the ´quintessentially American´ tour arranged by Mrs Obama, set up to highlight the energy of the U.S. and to open debates about improving the lives of women and children. Harlem´s Studio Museum, a gallery for modern and contemporary black art, was the setting for the luncheon
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says he is prepared to engage in "time-bound and results-oriented" talks on his country´s nuclear programme. He told the UN General Assembly´s annual meeting in New York that sanctions against Iran were "violent". He also welcomed Syria´s acceptance of the Chemical Weapons Convention and condemned the use of such weapons. Earlier, US President Barack Obama said he was encouraged by Mr Rouhani´s "more moderate course". He told the General Assembly that the diplomatic approach to settling the dispute over Iran´s nuclear programme must be tested. Mr Rouhani, who was elected earlier this year, has pledged a more open approach in
Americans don’t generally eat mushy peas, a staple of British fish and chip shops. But US foreign policy under Barack Obama certainly resembles it. The president’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday was as soggy as it gets, with Mr. Obama extending the hand of friendship to Iran’s new president Hassan Rouhani. In his UN address, President Obama was eager to recycle the propaganda flowing out of Tehran in recent weeks, with the White House making a rapprochement with Iran the centerpiece of its Middle East strategy. In Obama’s words: The Supreme Leader has issued a fatwa
At this hour, Ted Cruz is still speaking on the Senate floor. He is, at this moment, reading Green Eggs and Ham as a bedtime story for his children, but until how he has carried on a long, substantive denunciation of Obamacare. The parts I listened to were very good. It isn’t exactly a filibuster, just a really long speech. Still, he clearly intends to follow in Rand Paul’s footsteps; it was Paul who brought back the old-fashioned, on-your-feet filibuster, and created a sensation doing it. I am not crazy about Cruz’s plan to block cloture on the House resolution,
A very unhappy Senator John McCain (R-AZ) rebuked Senator Ted Cruz for accusing his GOP allies of being “appeasers” along the line of Neville Chamberlain’s Munich deal with Adolf Hitler in 1938. “I resoundingly reject that allegation,” McCain said on the Senate floor. “That allegation, in my view, does a great disservice for those brave Americans and those who stood up and said what’s happening in Europe cannot stand…Amongst them were my father and grandfather.”
Former President Bill Clinton says his wife would rather be a grandmother than president. In an interview on “CBS This Morning” Tuesday, anchor Charlie Rose asked the 42nd president which role Hillary Clinton would prefer taking on. “If you ask her, I think she’d say grandmother. But I have found it best not to discuss that issue,” he said with a laugh The Clintons´ only daughter, Chelsea, is married but does not have any children. “My goal is to live to be a grandfather. The rest of it is out of my hands,” Clinton said. With three years until the 2016 presidential election, speculation over
President Obama told the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday morning that the “world is more stable now than it was five years ago.” “Just as we reviewed how we deploy our extraordinary military capabilities in a way that lives up to our ideals, we’ve begun to review the way that we gather intelligence so that we properly balance the legitimate security concerns of our citizens and allies with the privacy concerns that all people share,” he said. “As a result of this work and cooperation with allies and partners, the world is more stable than it was five years ago,” he
Sen. Ted Cruz began a talk-a-thon on the Senate Tuesday afternoon and vowed to keep speaking “until I am no longer able to stand” as he tries to halt President Obama’s health care law. “I rise today to speak for 26 million Texans and 300 million Americans,” Mr. Cruz began. He took to the floor armed with a big black binder, thick with papers, presumably to read as he talks. He began at 2:41, and can talk up until noon tomorrow, when under the Senate rules he would have to stop and the Senate would proceed to vote on ending
Former President Bill Clinton said Wednesday that he believes his daughter, 33-year old Chelsea Clinton, has the potential to one day be a better president than his wife, former New York senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In an interview set to run late Wednesday on CNN’s Piers Morgan Live, Clinton was asked by the host who he thought would make a better president – his wife Hillary, or his daughter Chelsea. “Day after tomorrow, my wife because she’s had more experience,” he said. “Over the long run, Chelsea. She knows more than we do about everything.” Clinton lauded his daughter’s intelligence,
President Obama unwittingly disclosed his modus operandi in a single statement back in 2012. The sentence explains why he has been able to both win elections and been such a failure once in office. In the summer of 2012, President Obama refused to take responsibility for failures during his first term. As is his wont, he blamed others. In this case it was not the "usual suspect," Republicans, but all Americans. He told CBS News; Charlie Rose that his biggest mistake of his first term was not being a good enough storyteller:
Perhaps President Obama has kicked the smoking habit -- but he looks to be telling tall tales about how long it´s been since his last puff. The president was caught on camera Monday telling a U.N. official he hasn´t had a cigarette in six years. "I hope you quit smoking," Obama told Maina Kiai, on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York. "I haven´t had a cigarette probably in six years. That´s because I´m scared of my wife." Maybe it just felt like six years. According to statements made by his aides and his family, it´s been
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has denied a report quoting an employee of his office claiming he "f***ing hates" Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). As Senate Republicans convened for their weekly lunch meeting on Tuesday, members spoke to reporters about their views regarding the defunding effort of Obamacare through the House´s Continuing Resolution. "I just had dinner with Senator Cruz last week we have a very cordial relationship. We agree on a lot more things than we disagree," Senator McCain told Breitbart News. "I think we’re very friendly." Fox news Channel´s Chris Wallace told his viewers on Sunday that "top D.C. Republicans"
John McCain’s former senior adviser Steve Schmidt says he has “deep regret” for helping to create a “freak show” wing of the Republican Party when he had a hand in bringing former McCain running mate Sarah Palin to the national stage. Schmidt said Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” that it’s time for the GOP to stand up to the “asininity” embodied by Palin and others. “For the last couple of years, we’ve had this wing of the party running roughshod over the rest of the party. Tossing out terms like RINO, saying we’re going to purge, you know, the moderates out of
A source in Congress tells Breitbart News that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his campaign to defund Obamacare. "Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just
An Australian mother has chosen to scar her daughter for life with what might be the nastiest eBay listing of all time After her daughter lied to her about hanging out at an older boy´s house, the eBay user "tsfe" decided to teach her a lesson by auctioning off the One Direction concert tickets she had previously purchased as a birthday gift. The blistering, shaming message tsfe wrote in the listing was discovered by the Reddit user canusich, and it´s sure to make your inner teenager want to disappear on the spot. Here it is:
