Like the grains of sand in the "creepy" sculpture of Obama at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that were blown away by bad weather, it is only a matter of time until the stones constituting the protective wall around the Obama narrative begin to tumble. After all, a single pebble can start an avalanche. The foundation of the Obama image, already weakened by broken promises and a floundering economy, has been seriously rocked by some explosive revelations in the Benghazi and IRS investigations. Completing a trifecta of "serial shocks," real tremors began when
"Obama is a radical communist, and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it´s true"......."He is going to destroy this country, and we are either going to stop him or The United States of America is going to cease to exist." -Dr. Alan Keyes
If only...if only the citizens in "The Land of Lincoln" had listened to Dr. Keyes in 2004!
#3 The beginning of the end??? for America.....not Barak. Why do you think these snooping scandals broke??? The eyes and ears are off the real scandals like Benghazi and fast and furious and IRS. These are where the true crimes lay under the surface and now all media is transfixed with the Patriot Act under George Bush. This is going EXACTLY as planned for the demonic one in the whitehouse. God is our only hope. America should really turn back to Him through better morals, marriage, family life, etc.
O & Co. are waiting for the low information citizens to forget about all of this -- if they even know about it.
Now that a growing windstorm begins to blow the Obama-sculpture sand into the public eye, Obama peers down his nose and out of his royal box, on the lookout for a fall guy or two, as he reads innocently, à la Sgt. Schultz, from the teleprompter: "I know nothing."
To believe that the President of the United States "read about it in the newspaper, like the rest of you" is to engage in deliberate blindness. He knows what he wants done and is relying on others to do it. He wants, and so far has gotten, culpable deniability. It won´t last. This article puts me in mind of this poem by Shelley:
I met a traveler from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; And on the pedestal these words appear: “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!” Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away.
Before the latest round of implosions, if things ever did start to get a little shaky on the dais, Obama would often animate a straw man or offer a false choice
Here is the "false choice" O presents ignorant citizens with. He said that you can´t have 100% security and still have 100 privacy." No one ever suggested that either choice was feasible, yet he speaks those words as though we unsophisticated bitter clingers actually demanded either choice.
Everyone knows that 100% security isn´t possible. We also know that 100% privacy isn´t possible, so O gives America a false choice. That´s knowingly dishonest.
The choice is between strong security and reasonable expectation of privacy. 100% anything doesn´t exist. I deeply resent the disdain he harbors for the intelligence of most Americans. Hell, even some Leftists are now coming around -- they´re not totally stupid.
Clearly for Amerika, belief in the Creator has been replaced by belief and obeyance to the State. Indeed, history does repeat itself. Call it for what it is now - fascism, Amerikan style. My Austrian relatives in Vienna are just shaking their heads how Amerikans are being led like sheep to the slaughter same as the Austrians were back in the 1930s when Nazi Germany reared its ugly head. While I don´t expect 6 million of us to be exterminated by our own government as was the case 80 years ago (but, why is our government now hoarding ammunition??just asking), tyranny can take on many forms. Somebody quick figure out a way to wake up the sheep and the msm. The Obama avalanche is a spectacle to be sure, but don´t be so sure this avalanche of scandals will slow down Obie´s team one inch.
With the Demagogue in Chief as a total loss for words at his meet and don´t touch me event yesterday (45 secs of silence then "PEOPLE!) to get his cue cards...I am very worried as to whom is pulling the strings with all of this ammunition at their hands...
As Rush said yesterday there is not one document showing Hitler ordering the Holocaust, Obama´s fingerprints won´t be found on the IRS and NSA scandals, but Obama knew if he appointed like minded henchmen the job would get done. Now with Presidential pardons hanging over their heads the question is who will say "I was just following orders."
Time to build a prison annex at GITMO for Obama Henchmen.
How much of a correlation is there between the NSA scandal and the IRS scandal? It´s the first thing that came to mind upon hearing of them both basically within the same time frame.
Is there a symbiotic relationship between the two agencies? If Obama and his thugs can use the IRS to intimidate and thwart the activities of those who do not agree with him or his policies and goals, then it seems logical they would appreciate the NSA´s data and even exchange and share information they have gathered.
It´s a scary thought, but knowing the ruthlessness of liberals and Obama worshippers, it would not surprise. It is unthinkable that such a thing could happen in America - or it used to be before Obama ´dug in" and, with a lot of help from his ´friends´, declared himself "America´s King."
So if PRISM was data mining everything why didn´t they have the video from Benghazi and know what was happening? Oh that´s right, they did know and it was happening just as planned. I have met the enemy and it is us.
"While the GOP argues internally", that says all you need to know about the "opposition party". I´ll believe they´re a true opposition party when they act like one. Right now I see what looks like a bunch of people who got caught with their hands in the cookie jar. Hardly any opposition. Time will tell I guess.
Half of the people and 90% of the media behave like abused spouses toward Obama. He keeps showing his true colors, and yet they continue to believe that that he will become what they want him to be. The scales will fall from some of their eyes. Pray that it will be enough.
It remains to be seen whether the nation will continue to allow Obama or his ideology to remain at the helm. "Allow" is an option that no longer exists for the nation. There is no more "allow" just like there is no more integrity, honesty, courage, nor moral standard whatsoever among 536 federally elected employees. In addition, there are no more personal consequences nor accountability for clear, open, live and in color crimes that twenty years ago, any one would result in slam duck impeachments. Mr. Obama has no opposition at all and will only afterburn his (READ-Valerie Jarrett´s) agenda even more than he already is. Soon, there will be a surprising surge in his popularity among most voters implemented by singling out and destroying whoever needs destroying, you know, his standard Alinsky rule tactic. It will work again to the surprise and shock of the Depends wearing (and filling) GOP. I´ve said it before, Obama could frog march any Benghazi whistle blower, IRS Tea Party victim, James Rosen, et al onto the White House lawn and on live video, shoot them all in the head, turn to the cameras and say, "I did it to save the children and show the need for stricter gun laws." Absolutely NOTHING would happen to Mr. Obama, nothing. And, the story would be Mitch McConnell and the GOP´s racist and extreme reaction to Obama´s "tough choices." It´s THAT ridiculous and most voters are THAT stupid. In fact, you ain´t seen nothin´ yet.
This is an excellent article summarizing many of the horrific facts (those that we know anyway) about the dictator 0bama. As has been stated many times before, those of us here were screeching at the top of our lungs about how bad he was even before the first election. The information she mentions was all "out there" and those like Charles Krauthammer could just as well investigated 0bama yet he continued to say he would "govern from the center." It is stunning to me that these brilliant elites chose to ignore the extreme warning signs about the evil, malicious 0bama. I truly hope there is an awakening in this country and he is finally seen for what he is. If there isn´t I truly don´t know what we will do. It is terrible to live in a constant state of upset wondering what horrific, criminal scandal will next erupt.
These scandals will all be forgotten as soon as the new immigration bill is passed. It´s a huge red herring. The Administration is probably kicking themselves for not having thought of this tactic during the Obamacare debates.
Bingo # 11. Prism and the NSA domestic spying story has two prongs. First-The overreach and waste of resources spent collecting metadata on innocent Americans , instead of profiling. Secondly- Logic , common sense, past is prologue , Occam´s Razor et al. indicates that Obama and his allies accessed the collected NSA data for political purposes. How naive does one have to be after 5 years of this unscrupulous, deceitful and lawless administration to think they wouldn´t ? How much evidence does one need to finally see and smell the corruption ? Lindsey Graham has been on target on Benghazi and he threw that all away telling Holder to his face that he trusted him to collect and use the data properly and legally. Gullible Graham must hold the deeds to a lot of oceanfront property in Kansas.
One of hussein´s lackeys yesterday said that the billions of phone calls are absolutely necessary to follow patterns of calls to "known" terror cells overseas. Now they´re looking for "interns" to paw through them.
Hogwash to the max! The calls "from known" terror cells are monitored by the seconds and the recipients are also "known." The spin is like riding the spider at a carnival. You never know which direction they´re going to go.
A friend from Arkansas had a visit by three FBI agents at eleven the night of the OKC incident at the IRS building. After two hours of intense interogation, they explained that he had made a call to a known militia member in Michigan a minute and thirty seven seconds before the OKC event.
He had called about a part for a gun he saw advertised on Craigslist.
Don´t tell me our calls aren´t being listened to at will and whenever. It´s totally unconstitutional and a massive invasion of our right to privacy. Follow the decay of any dictator´s coup. Grab the communication, the media and then the military and the people are captives.
The main problem is that Americans have not yet been hit hard enough by the obama destruction. Most of us still have jobs, have plenty to eat, have adequate healthcare, still have retirement money and can travel from state to state without going through armed checkpoints (unless you fly). We have closets full of guns and ammo because we know what´s coming, we can buy what we like and can drive our cars around without them being stoned or burned and the government-backed race war so far doesn´t have enough steam to really get started.
Once some of that starts to change, obamacare kicks in, the economy crashes, people will finally get serious about getting rid of ValJar, Jugears, Holder, Axelrod, etc. and getting some reponsible adults in government. When it does start to change, EVERYTHING will depend upon the contents of those closets. If we hand over our guns, the last barrier to dictatorship is gone. Remember that when that decision faces you.
Go to your files, look, meditate on the three buildings collapsing as though there were explosives pre planted on every floor It´s professionally known as "demolition". The idea was that two crashing planes caused them to collapse uniformly, disappearing in their own chemical dust. Remember, the third instantly crumbling building suffered no plane crash? W and his entire staff instantly knew who did it and he "war-threatened" all Americans with "You´re either with us or against us", followed by the ill named Patriot Act, and formation of Homeland Security. Loss of freedom paved the way for the next evil dictator. A person hateful of America, and supportive of Communist beliefs flavored with an Islamic supremicist ideology, bringing with him a stealth packed cell of Communist comrades from his nefarious, unproven, non documented past. No birth certificate! not even with a legit social security card already ! News actors Diane Sawyer, Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, Brian Williams, Steve Pelley, have put beer drinking Americans to sleep, slumbering through this Hitleran destruction. Thank the bad drug dealing Diane Sawyer news fraudsters for putting America to sleep. And watch the 9-11 buildings again. See how truly desperate forces dare to work out in the open.
#28 – Ditto the end of your post: “When it does start to change, EVERYTHING will depend upon the contents of those closets. If we hand over our guns, the last barrier to dictatorship is gone. Remember that when that decision faces you.”
Actually this is a decision that every law-abiding citizen gun owner should already be thinking over and if not, its time to start. When the fit hits the shan it will happen quickly and there will be no time for reflection. The veneer of civilization is very thin, and especially fragile when the tearing apart is being instigated by a government. The socialists/progressives require the consent of their victims. All their registration and confiscation schemes depend upon voluntary compliance. Will you volunteer to register your weapons just because they declare an edict? Will you take your weapons down to the local police station just because they declare them de facto illegal? Do you have a place to hide your weapons when they begin house-to-house searches/confiscation? What is your plan for your place and circumstances?
Blessedly, our current sheriff is a member of the Constitutional Sheriffs and has publicly declared he will not enforce any unconstitutional gun laws. And, this is in California. Find out if your county sheriff is a member of Constitutional Sheriffs, and if he intends to enforce illegal gun-control laws.
I too, watched Cavuto yesterday, #20....And when Romney uttered these stupid words..."I´m not going to criticize this President".... I almost lost my lunch.....I quickly lurched for the on/off button and turned that idiot off! What an ass! "I´m not going to criticize this President"??????? No wonder we dont have a prayer as Conservatives in this Left-Wing dominated culture we´re trapped in!!!!!
Romney, you asshat, thanks for nothing! And that goes for McPain and Rubio and Christie and Ryan and whoever else the left portrays as our leaders..the truth is------WE ARE LEADER-LESS!!!!!! Obama and Biden and Clinton and Pelosi are all so wonderful to the lap-dog rumpswabs and all of our so-called conservative leaders like Romney and Bachmann and Palin are mocked and ridiculed with glee...this truly sickens me and it feels so hopeless to ever again be represented as a white, conservative, Christian, veteran, man! I am truly sick and tired of being treated like sh** !!!!
I´d like to think articles like this bring hope, but to me, it´s just false hope, all I can do is pray to GOD to change us back to the proud nation we once were, not the one full of lies,deviance, homosexuality, abortion, and false portrayal of Africans(They only constitute one out of eight of us...7 out of 8 Americans are NOT black!)
It feels like a losing battle against the Left-Wing Marxist cultural dominance in our culture, and I dont like it one bit...I want to CHANGE IT BACK!!
Apropos #12 and #31: Hasn’t it occurred to anyone else that the reason the Tsarnaevs weren’t stopped before the Marathon is that no one in a position of power wanted them stopped? Or, afterwards, caught? Those meddling citizens who brought about the arrests were comparable to the former SEALs in Benghazi, in that they gummed up the works in a much bigger and uglier plan.
In business it used to be called “shake-the-box management”: a phrase borrowed from the research labs, where a handful of mice were kept in a high-walled tray that was jiggled and bounced, randomly and continuously, depriving the ‘subjects’ of any trust in the stability of their surroundings, until they went stark staring crazy. Today, we -- all of us, that is, who aren’t shaking the box -- are the mice.
I agree with #4. I think all of the scandals since Benghazi have been launched on purpose to divert attention from Benghazi. I don´t think the IRS scandal or the information mining operations can reach the president. I think that which actually happened at Benghazi, a plan to trade an ambassador for a terrorist prisoner gone bad because of navy Seals doing their job too well and the subsequent cover up represents the real danger to the president and the leading Democrat candidate to replace him. Consider it has already been admitted that the IRS scandal was deliberately leaked and the government spying scandal was leaked to a British newspaper (try calling them before a congressional committee). That said, these diversions from Benghazi might prove almost as damaging.
At a recent book tour stop for her best-selling book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin drew a blue-collar crowd consisting of all races in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. As can be seen in the video below, many who came to see Palin said they identified with her because she has a son in the military. Others said they loved her "values" and how she "stands by them." An active duty soldier said that Palin "speaks the truth" and is "straight-forward." "And I like that so much," the active duty soldier said. Another gentleman said
CancelCare: Dismissed as anecdotal exceptions, as many as 80 million people with employer health plans, like a Virginia cancer patient, now find their coverage being canceled because it doesn´t comply with ObamaCare. Debra Fishericks, who has been working for the past 10 years at Atkinson Realty in Virginia Beach, has been frantically scouring Healthcare.gov for a plan that fits her. But she´s finding, like so many others, that premiums and plans like the one she had are out of her price range. Fishericks is battling kidney cancer, and while one of the benefits of ObamaCare was supposed to be that people with pre-existing
Trust: We know ObamaCare was sold on a lie, but what about the Obama presidency itself? Rumors that Obama´s violent leftist pal Bill Ayers ghostwrote the memoir that launched his political career may actually be true. Obama has always claimed authorship of his bestselling "Dreams From My Father." But Ayers is telling a different story. In promoting his new book, "Public Enemy," Ayers´ publisher, Beacon Press, has written a blurb on Amazon.com that says Ayers "finally ´confesses´ that he did write ´Dreams From My Father.´" The boast appears in other promotions for the book as well. For instance, a Baltimore bookstore — Red
Appeasement: On both uranium and plutonium the terrorist state of Iran can continue to work toward nuclear weaponry. Except for that minor quibble, the so-called "Joint Plan of Action" is great. It takes something big to distract the nation from ObamaCare, the IRS scandal, Benghazi, and the Census Bureau moonlighting as Obama campaign aides — like a pact getting Islamofascist Iran to give up its nuclear program. But that is not what was announced last weekend to much hoopla in both Geneva by Secretary of State John Kerry and in Washington by President Obama. It might be big in terms of appeasement, but
Human moral progress is not a given, as progressives would like Americans to believe. Take the ancient punishment of stoning, for example. A report in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week said the Afghan government is considering draft legislation to inflict as punishment public stoning on men and women who commit adultery. Abdul Raouf Brahawee, the director of legislation at the Afghan Ministry of Justice told the paper that, "The Islamic Sharia instructs us to do so… There is a verse in the Quran about it." So much for 21st century enlightenment. Is this a case of former Sec. of State Hillary
All three networks on Tuesday hyped an "interesting" exchange between Barack Obama and a liberal heckler. ABC, CBS and ABC declined, however, to specifically note that the man´s concern was that the President simply wasn´t liberal enough on the issue of immigration reform. On NBC´s Today, Natalie Morales praised, "You know, I think that the President handled it well by engaging." [See video below. MP3 audio here.] Co-host Willie Geist defended the President´s insistence that he needs Congress to pass legislation. Geist sympathetically noted, "The President´s argument was ´I can´t wave the magic wand and make this go away.´ But he
RUSH: I must hit you with what is said to be a correction. Yesterday we opened with the big news that the World Health Organization, which is part of the United Nations, reported that half of the AIDS or HIV infections in Greece were self-inflicted. The economy is so bad, the welfare state so entrenched that the World Health Organization said that half of the HIV infections in Greece are self-inflicted so that the recipients can get the equivalent of $900 a month welfare, 700-some-odd euros. Well, today the World Health Organization has apologized. They blamed an editing error for claiming
Leave it to MSNBC to see Thanksgiving as a time to be thankful for ObamaCare, Wendy Davis, same-sex marriage, and John Kerry hammering out an interim nuclear deal with Iran. "In a year where Congress’ approval rating has reached an all time low, an embattled President Obama faces the healthcare challenge that could define his legacy, and the timetable for US troops in Afghanistan remains murky, it is all too easy to become cynical about the public sphere," MSNBC.com writers Johnny Simon and Farra Kober confessed in a piece published this morning. "But when members of the msnbc family paused to
RUSH: This is Robert in Vermont. Robert, great to have you here on the Rush Limbaugh program. Hi. CALLER: Rush, it´s a real privilege to speak to you. Thank you for taking my call. RUSH: Thank you, sir. Thanks very much. CALLER: I have to confess I am a college professor, a business professor at a liberal arts college in Vermont. Needless to say, as I told Snerdley, I am on the endangered species list. I do want to mention the delicious irony that you´re going to witness next year. Among those 80 to 100 million people who are going to lose their
RUSH: The Health Care Stack just keeps growing and growing and growing. The Obama poll numbers continue to plummet, and now Wolf Blitzer is officially concerned at CNN, finally addressed the poll numbers. Obama is now stacking his personal appearances with hecklers. A lot of people are making a big deal about the heckler in San Francisco at Obama´s immigration rally or appearance. Somebody wrote the script for the heckler, and it allowed Obama to portray the Limbaugh Theorem, "Yeah, I agree with you, I´m trying to fix it. I´m working with Congress, but, you know, I just can´t make
When we got up this morning, there was an email on our BlackBerry from "Barack Obama." We assumed that, like all the other emails we get from "Obama," it was a fundraising pitch from Organizing for Action, the 501(c)(4) "social welfare" organization that sells access to the president. We began reading: Dear the American People, Things are tough for me at the moment; as you may know, the website for my health care plan had a big glitch. If I were my predecessor, I´d order a full-scale attack on Webistan. Fortunately Webistan doesn´t exist, so I´ve just had to deal. Dealing is hard. But
The White House on Tuesday would not categorically rule out future executive actions to address immigration, while continuing to maintain "there is not" anything the president could do in lieu of congressional action on comprehensive reform. “I don’t want to speculate about what sort of actions the president might or might not take," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters. Obama has come under pressure from immigration activists, who have challenged the president to act unilaterally now that a comprehensive immigration bill appears stalled in the House.
Everyone has a favorite recipe, find it in the back of a kitchen drawer, call your mom, see if you still have that dog-eared copy of the Joy of Cooking. It´s on the back of an old electric bill stuck inside the back cover. Find it and post it for all your LCom friends. If you have a special request let us know, someone can find it somewhere.
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes an alarming number of
Noel Ignatiev, a professor at Massachusetts College of Art, has for years advocated the total elimination of Caucasians. During his final lecture before retirement last Monday, he told his white male students "you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease." NOEL IGNATIEV: If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a
Appearing on Arsenio Hall’s talk show over the weekend, ?Jesse Jackson defended both President Obama, who he said has faced heretofore unseen advsersity as president, as well as Jackson’s embattled son, who he said “had the best voting record in the Congress” before he was sentenced by unfair laws. On the president, Jackson praised him for “serving us well against the most hostility an American president has ever had” and “more attempts to derail his legislation then in the history of the country.” Between job creation and his efforts in Iraq, President Obama has “maintained a kind of dignity” without stooping
Pure, sweet, schadenfreudean goodness from Politico. See now why I think there’s a chance that those new Iran sanctions pass with veto-proof majorities? Turns out, after three years and a half years of development plus two months of frantic triage to Healthcare.gov, Democrats are finally ready to hold the White House accountable for its giant O-Care fark-up. A little. “The president and his team have repeatedly assured us that the system will be working by Dec. 1. That’s when I start looking at what we have to do in our oversight function to hold the administration accountable for making it work.” Rep.
Normally, I don´t traffic much in gossip, but the case of Valerie Jarrett is different. She may well be the most powerful woman in America, and almost certainly is the most powerful member of the Obama administration. The adjective "shadowy" definitely applies to this woman who enjoys her power through her relationship to the President, having never been confirmed by Senate hearings. Her title as "Senior Adviser" to the President barely scratches the surface of her real power. President Obama has time for his 150+ rounds of golf, his extensive television watching, and his expertise on March Madness bracketology because ValJar,
Located just 50 miles off the U.S. coast, north of New York City, sits Petra, a heart-shaped island that now belongs to Brad Pitt, after Angelina reportedly shelled out £12.2million to buy it for his 50th birthday. Pitt is apparently an architect fanatic, so when Jolie discovered that the island´s only two homes were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, she was sold. Pitt once said,“When I discovered Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright, it changed my life.” A source revealed that “as soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) left the door open to another presidential run during a Monday panel in New Hampshire. Asked whether he ever thinks about running again — Huntsman dropped out of the 2012 Republican primary after finishing third in New Hampshire — he suggested he hadn´t ruled out the option. He closed a long response to the question, posed at Saint Anselm College, by saying: "Which is a long way of saying that I love public service. I´ll always be committed to public service. And as an itinerant public servant, from time to time, it´s hard to know where
SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month on domestic violence charges, according to court documents released Tuesday. A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriend´s house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table. Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges
"Trust is like virginity: once you lose it it´s hard to get it back." So spoke pollster John Zogby, commenting on his latest poll on President Obama´s handling of his office. Quoted by Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner: "Most ominous for Mr. Obama is that 57 percent now disapprove of his job. That is his worst number yet. This includes 57 percent of men and 55 percent of women; 51 percent of moderates, 24 percent of liberals and 24 percent of Democrats; 66 percent of independents and 40 percent of Hispanics. Meanwhile, a separate poll by CNN/ORC International found: 53%
Maybe it was something about what they served in the White House mess in the 1990s. Or perhaps it´s what happens to baby boomer Democrats more than a decade after leaving office. For whatever the reason former vice president Al Gore has gone vegan, just like the president with whom he once served. Gore´s recent decision to forgo animal products surfaced as an offhand reference in a Forbes magazine piece about Hampton Creek Foods, an upscale vegan product line carried in Whole Foods. Ryan Mac´s article, which posted Saturday, chronicled how wealthy investors including Bill Gates, Tom Steyer and Vinod Khosla
Alec Baldwin has been fired by MSNBC, sources say. The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” has been canceled because of the actor’s foul-mouthed rant at a photographer he called a nasty name. “The decision has been made. He’s gone,” an insider at the cable channel told me. “The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building.” Baldwin’s dismissal was decided on partly because of his diva-like behavior toward co-workers, a source said.
