Michelle Obama to appear
on Vogue cover

Washington Post, by Amy Argetsinger

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/12/2013 5:55:31 PM

Michelle Obama will appear on her second Vogue cover this month. Our former colleague Robin Givhan reports that the first lady was photographed wearing an ensemble by Reed Krakoff — the designer whose royal-blue dress she wore at the official swearing-in this year. Photographer Annie Leibovitz — who also shot the first lady wearing a Michael Kors ball skirt and sweater – attempted to entice Obama into one of her trademark creative shoots she’s employed for so many Hollywood celebrities (i.e., reclining in a milk bath). No such luck. Unclear if Obama posed in her own clothes,

Please make this narcissistic woman stop...there has to be some way to tell her to just knock it off, stop with the vegetable garden that goes from seeds to harvest in 10 days, stop with the pushups and other manly athletics, stop taking the "girls" vacationing on the taxpayers´ nickel, and stop with the fashion stuff she continues to down our throats. If this bow-legged boor is a fashion icon, I´m a brain surgeon.

The truth is that with seventeen pounds of makeup applied by a team of experts, a fortune in lighting, Annie Liebowitz behind the camera, and 20 hours of retouching even a woman as homely as Moo can look like a cover shot on a fashion magazine that has her equally homely pal, Anna Wintour, as its editor.

#17, I´ll up you one: when I go to bookstores, I always place good conservative authors´ books in front of books praising the Won and the Wookie, just to make the libs´ heads explode. It´s loads of fun to put Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin, Thomas Sowell etc books out on the shelves. The store clerks must freak out. :-)

I have a gut feeling that all these Obama sycophants should bone up on WWII history and what the Nazi collaborators in France faced once France was liberated.

Obama is not Hitler and his thugs are not Nazis, but their arrogance and dictatorial style seem to have a parallel style from WWII France.

So far Obama doesn´t have an Albert Speer to do his architectural bidding, but we still have most of four years to go. A lot can happen in these next four years. I believe there will be the equivalent of the French Resistance among our countrymen if the Obamas don´t back off.

How much will this cost the taxpayer, because you know the Mooch will bill us for her "expenses" b?? And how much is Vague paying the Mooch? Will it declare the money on its income taxes? (Leverage expense declaration onto the taxpayer so you can keep mo moneys, Mooch! ) when will this hideous creature ever GO AWAY? I confess to turning over the mags as well. The fawnjng , sycophantic press has participated in cult-worship of the ØbaMugabe creatures in a fashion last seen during the Stalin era. When will Sausage and Malaria have their own photo shoots?

It´s a busy week — actually a busy month — for first lady Michelle Obama, but thanks to Rachael Ray, we learned a new tidbit about her today: She doesn´t like Brussels sprouts or liver. (Well, who does?) Recalling the entertaining moment, 24 years ago this month, when President George H.W. Bush declared that he loathed broccoli and never wanted to see another sprig again, Obama confessed to Ray on her show today that she felt just as strongly against Brussels sprouts and liver. "But I loved liver," Ray protested. "You were one of the few," Mrs. O laughed. "My mommy

New Democratic Strategy Goes

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers. Its slogan:

Obama Tries Reverse Psychology:

Minimum Wage…
Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/6/2014 5:04:04 AM     Post Reply
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama traveled to New Britain, Connecticut, where he made his case for a national increase of the minimum wage to $10.10 for all workers. Towards the end of his speech there, the president toyed with the idea of using some reverse psychology on his Republican opponents. “Maybe I should say I oppose raising the minimum wage,” he said. Then, “they’d be for it.” Obama cited statistics that say nearly 75% of all Americans and 50% of Republicans support raising the minimum wage, but somehow Republicans in Congress almost uniformly oppose it. “Now, I don’t know if

Washington -The Republican-led House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to delay for one year the tax penalty Americans will pay under President Barack Obama´s healthcare law if they decline to enroll in health coverage for this year. The measure passed by a vote of 250-160, with 27 Democrats joining with 223 Republicans to back the legislation. But the bill is expected to go nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate and would face a White House veto even if it succeeded. The vote, part of a Republican election-year attack strategy against the 2010 healthcare law known as Obamacare, marked the 50th time

It´s no surprise Obama is trying to gin up the base when Democrats take off their rose colored glasses and see his domestic and foreign policy failures. It´s about the money and the following excerpts from Roberta Rampton at Reuters helps makes the case. --- "It is one of 30 fundraisers the president plans to headline through June. He will attend two more on Wednesday in Boston." --- Remember that OFA now exists as a shadow DNC which sucks money as well as energy out of the Democrats by dividing resources. --- "You better hope Democrats stay in the Senate."

Sitting at the breakfast table where the morning sun streams in, Dorothy Tucker winces as the brush tugs at her hair. Her daughter, Barbara Tucker Parker, strokes more gently, drawing her mother’s long white ponytail through an elastic band. “Okay, is it better?” she says. “Yes,” says Tucker, 87, a vague look in her blue eyes. This is how their day begins. When Tucker wakes and emerges from her bedroom, her daughter sets out her morning pills and brings her shredded-wheat cereal with 2 percent milk and three prunes. She kneels and pulls compression stockings over her mother’s legs to

An Ohio boy was suspended by his school for giving a student the finger — his index finger. Nathan Entingh, 10, was suspended from Denvonishe Alternative Elementary School last week for three days because he made a gun gesture with his hand and said “bang” when he pointed it at a student’s head. “I was just playing around,” little Nathan told the Columbus Dispatch. “People play around like this a lot at my school.” The behavior rankled school officials, who said that they have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to gun-related jokes and actions.

The Bush family doesn´t waste any time indoctrinating the next generation into the world of politics. George H.W. Bush´s baby great-grandson Prescott joined his father George P. Bush in the voting booth yesterday as daddy runs for Texas land commissioner. Baby Prescott was swept up by his mom Amanda just as dad went into the booth - but he still got an ´I Voted´ sticker. Bush easily won the Republican nomination for the position, and will face former El Paso Mayor John Cook in the general election in November. Either Bush or Cook will replace outgoing Commissioner Jerry Patterson, who

Former IRS official Lois Lerner refused for a second time on Wednesday to testify about her role in a scheme to target conservative organizations that applied for tax-exempt status during President Barack Obama´s first term in office. Lerner risks arrest if she is found in contempt of Congress. The House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee ruled on June 21, 2013 that Lerner, formerly in charge of the IRS´s Exempt Organizations office, waived her right to invoke the Fifth Amendment during a May 22 hearing when she insisted in a lengthy opening statement that she had done nothing wrong.

Speaking to reporters just minutes after Ms. Lerner again invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination at a committee hearing, Mr. Boehner said he would wait for a final report of what happened. But he said he believes she will eventually have to talk. “I’ll wait for a report from Chairman Issa about what happened or what will happen. But at some point I believe that

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony. Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect. The Government Accountability Office, a watchdog agency inside the federal government, told members of Congress in a little-noticed January 28 report that participation in the school lunch program declined by 1,086,000 in that one year, the biggest drop on record. [Snip] The first lady rolled out the law´s final regulations in January 2012 with a presentation linked to her ´Let´s Move!´ children´s health initiative. Changes took effect that fall.

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

In a strongly worded letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his House committee chairmanship after he abruptly ended a hearing Wednesday morning over the objection of Democrats in the room. "Mr. Issa is a disgrace and should not be allowed to continue in a leadership role," wrote Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), who leads the Congressional Black Caucus, in the letter to Boehner. The Wednesday hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting controversy quickly turned tense. When former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers. Its slogan:

A plea for about a dozen people who know who they are: Will you see “12 Years a Slave” now? It just won the Oscar for Best Picture. It just came out on DVD. Please see it. I’ll even spring for the popcorn. You see, I keep encountering folks, mostly African-American, who have decided that they won’t -- or can’t -- see this movie. Some say they don’t want to be made angry. Others say they don’t want to be traumatized. I don’t blame them for respecting the power of this film. “12 Years,” based on the 1853 memoir of a free man kidnapped

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to

President Obama strongly denounced the Senate on Wednesday for failing to confirm a top nominee to the Justice Department. In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said. "Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable." Obama said the main attack used against Adegbile -- Republicans denounced his work on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal
