Obama signals he WILL be
working during his Camp David
weekend, with BlackBerry strapped
to his belt and a briefing
book in hand

New York Daily News, by Leslie Larson

President Obama spent Friday chilling on the golf course, hitting the links with his close friends, North Carolina Democrat Martin Nesbitt and Dr. Eric Whitaker, a Chicago health expert. After a wild night of fireworks and a performance by indie band fun. at the White House Fourth of July barbecue on the South Lawn, the President opted for a casual look as he departed the executive mansion. Obama´s weekend of relaxation comes as Secretary of State John Kerry has been criticized for taking time away from the office to chill on his yacht in Nantucket, Mass.,

Eric Whitaker isn´t a health expert he´s a professional Chicago thugocrat who´s used his position to swindle taxpayers of out countless millions.He´s the one who gave MO the overpaid no show job she had in Chicago,right after Obama,as a state senator got the hospital a big grant.

Still he is one of Obama´s most trusted advisers and it doesn´t surprise me this is a working weekend for Obama,trying to figure out how to reinstall the MB in Egypt.

I´m sure Obama honestly believes Muslim anger exists because Israel exists.He also believes blacks are angry about poverty and being oppressed by creepy crackas.

He supported the MB despite their record of terrorism and Islamist objectives.
This fraud must be exposed and removed.
The Ghosts of Benghazi are over the WH.
If it is proven he worked with Morsi to kidnap / kill Amb Stevens as a ruse to exchange for the Eqyptian terrorist the Blind Sheikh- he should be charged with treason.
Hilary must also be held to account for the false narrative of the video to throw an election.
Interesting he goes to Camp David- does he fear the Ghosts of Benghazi?

This is a truly pukeworthy article:

Though the President will engage in recreational activities, he had his trusty BlackBerry strapped to his belt and a briefing book in hand when he exited the White House, showing that the commander-in-chief never really gets a day off.

So carrying a briefing book and a Blackberry means that he´s working? Guaranteed he won´t use that briefing book and will use the Blackberry only when Valerie phones him to tell him what he´s supposed to do next.

The family time comes just after Malia just celebrated her 15th birthday Thursday.
Though the birthday girl and 12-year-old Sasha opted not to appear with their mom and dad for the meet-and-greet in the afternoon, Malia stood with her dad on the portico to watch the spectacular fireworks display on the National Mall.


How special. This "birthday girl" lives a life of luxury far beyond almost everyone in this country. I don´t want to hear any more about POTUS´ precious little kiddies and their privileged lifestyle.

That´s because none of these bums feels they have been given anything. They feel they are owed what they get because they have been so "oppressed" by the crackers. When you have never earned what you have, you never can or do feel a sense of gratitude or achievement, you only feel a sense of entitlement and aggrievement.

I thought that both of these "buds" were from Chicago. Both own second homes in D.C. Wonder who pays for these homes??? The Press of course will not cover this unusual situation with Preezy´s friends and why they are in D.C. every weekend at the Boomtown homes so they can spend time with their Best Friend. Not to mention the entire Whittaker and Nesbitt families traveling on vacation everytime the first Grifters leave town. No other potus would be permitted this type of antic.

Dr. Whitaker can´t be a very good health expert with the shooting gallery going on every weekend now in Chicago. Anyone catch the protesters in front of Mayor Twinkletoes house on Drudge?

The most prized possession of the Obama family is their sense of victimhood. It justifies all manor of hostile, angry behavior.

The Black Community has bought into the dangerous and crippling falsehood that life is easy for white people.

They haven´t got a clue but do have a nasty and hostile agenda of payback for crimes committed in antiquity.

The photo accompanying the gushing article shows the Commander in Chief exiting
the White House wearing what looks to be Michelle´s short shorts from the infamous Grand Canyon vacation,
twig legs and flip flops.
Trayvon definitely could have been his son.
Now..a foursome for golf requires four.
Only 3 people are mentioned by name in the piece.
No doubt Reggie Love is the fourth and the media cover up of Barry´s double life continues.

"Wilful blindness" is what our corrupt judiciary does: to not look and therefore, not be held accountable. It´s a common gangster judge practice. Now think of it as a raging virulent TV media Diane Sawyer practice. Wilful blindness. Don´t look and therere don´t be accountable to know the dirt. Onto the golf course, where the TV media, the entire media world, is wilfully blind, not to want to photograph the pResident and his golf swing. Isn´t it like nobody would dare to show Hitler´s swing either. Technology shows us brilliant sequences of every swing of every tournament golfer in the competitive world, but no Nobama swing. Too embarassing? What is the answer? It´s a no brainer for the already WILFULLY BLIND MEDIA.

Great picture of those skinny teenage female looking legs (that ought to be hidden under slacks): the pResident appears to be squatting. What for? Isn´t there a head cum johnny-type facilities next to the Oval Office? And of course in a subsequent picture there are those famous ears like a Tijuana taxi coming down the street with all four doors open silhouetted against the rocket´s reddish-purple glare. The sycophancy of the Obama-adoring press was never very attractive, but as his negatives pile up everywhere, it´s gotten positively emetic. "Body Man" Reggie isn´t the only one who´s been ecstatically transported to Man´s Country and far beyond. The nation would be a better place without the Head Swiveler and his cheering section. Maybe Snowden´s got his Kenyan birth certificate, 90 proof and ready to pour. Well, we can hope, can´t we?

NEW YORK— Video phone calls? Yeah, we do that. Asking computers for information? Sure, several times a day. Colonies on the moon and jet packs as a mode of everyday transportation. OK, maybe not. The New York World´s Fair of 1964 introduced 51 million visitors to a range of technological innovations and predictions, some that turned out to be right on the money and others that, perhaps thankfully, were way off the mark. At the Bell System pavilion, engineers touted a "picturephone" that allowed callers to see who they were talking to, a concept that lives on in modern-day apps

Speaking at Al Sharpton´s National Action Network convention on Friday in New York City, President Barack Obama revealed that he believes voter fraud does not exist, everyone who wants to should be able to vote, even if they cannot provide identifying documentation, and Republicans are plotting to take the franchise away from minorities. Obama, who hails from a city known for the Daley Machine and its "vote early and vote often" slogan, ripped Republicans for trying to preserve the integrity of the ballot by reducing voter fraud and requiring voter IDs.

Coldwater Creek joins other retailers to seek protection from creditors in recent months as consumers keep a lid on spending. The company said it plans to wind down its operations over the coming months and begin going-out-of-business sales in early May, before the traditionally busy Mother´s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek said it has 365 stores and employs about 6,000 people.

WASHINGTON — Everyone knew it was a disaster. After Kathleen Sebelius appeared on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” last October, she and her staff at the Department of Health and Human Services felt she had been sandbagged by Mr. Stewart. At the White House, President Obama’s top aides were aghast at her wooden performance. The White House frustration with Ms. Sebelius crystallized by Thanksgiving, as it became clear in Washington that she would eventually have to go. Republicans were brutalizing her at congressional hearings. The health care website’s problems were consuming the White House. Under mounting pressure from congressional

Two people were shot to death and 14 others were wounded in Friday afternoon into Saturday morning shootings. The most recent homicide happened in the 2700 block of East 76th Street. Police said. A 37-year-old sustained “multiple” gunshot wounds and died on a front porch of a frame home on that block. That happened about 9:25 p.m. Earlier, a 17-year-old girl was pronounced dead at 5:43 p.m. at Northwestern Memorial Hospital following a shooting in the 6400 block of South Eberhart Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner´s office.

NASA said Friday night that a backup computer on the outside of the orbiting lab is not responding to commands.

You would think there would not be an argument about this anymore,” said Obama in an address to Rev. Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference in New York City. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” he added. The president directly blamed Republicans, saying new

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are enjoying a rare night out in New York City, dining with friends at an Italian trattoria at the high-end Gramercy Park Hotel. They are joined by poet Elizabeth Alexander, who read at Obama´s 2009 inauguration, Chicago friends Kelly and Andrew Dibble, senior White House aide Valerie Jarrett and sportscaster and former NFL wide receiver Ahmad Rashad. Obama and Rashad played golf last month during an Obama family vacation in Florida. The first couple was in New York Friday for Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference. Obama spoke at the conference earlier,

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
