10 questions for Obama’s presser
The Hill (Washington DC), by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/8/2013 8:36:55 PM

President Obama will hold his first solo press conference in more than three months on Friday before he departs for a weeklong vacation at Martha´s Vineyard. The summer has been unkind to Obama, with controversies at home and abroad wearing down his approval rating. His poll numbers have dipped 5 points since he last spoke to the media in April, according to a Fox News survey released Thursday, and his overall approval rating is at 42 percent, just 2 percent points above the low point in his presidency. With his personal popularity flagging, the president will try to

Excuse me? How about: 1. Who gave the order to stand down in Benghazi? 2. Where were you the night of the attack? 3. Was the IRS a phony scandal? 4. Did you discuss Edward Snowden with Vladamir Putin? 5. Should the taxpayers bail out Detroit? 6. What specific authority in the Affordable Health Care Act allows you to delay or suspend its implementation? 7. Why do you avoid press conferences in favor of late night entertainment hosts? 8. Do you believe it is good symbolism for the president and his family to take frequent high end vacations and golf outings when the rest of the country is struggling? 9. Have you told Senate Majority Leader Reid that you want his chamber to pass a budget? 10. When are you going to close Gitmo?

After 5.5 years of Obama and $22.5 trillion in spending the Hill is still having to ask this simple but revealing question:

8. Do you believe it is good symbolism for the president and his family to take frequent high end vacations and golf outings when the rest of the country is struggling?

Answer - I don´t give a flying AF1. My primary concern, and quite frankly, only concern, is me. Now I´m outta here. Where´s Reggie?"

If any questions are actually saked, they will be, "Mr. President, how´s you golf handicap this time?", "Mr. President, do you expect to get in any skeet shooting this go around? (Laughter)", "Mr. President, do you have any plans for a lobster feast?" "Mr. President, has John Kerry offered to go wet suit surf boarding with you?" Yeah-- should be a really tough Q&A session.

OMG The Hill is actually pretending to be serious. Here´s your questions for Dear Leader, hard-hitting MSM guys:

1. What is your favorite color?
2. How can you be so wonderful all the time?
3. May I please have your autograph?
4. Why are Republicans so damn racist and selfish?
5. Do you wish the press was kinder to you?
6. Which other Nobel Prizes do you feel you´re qualified for?
7. Does your very presence ever cause Michelle to faint in ecstasy?
8. Now that you´ve singlehandedly healed the economy, may I please have another autograph?
9. How can those backward, retrograde Americans who hate socialism be so stupid?
10. May I please touch the hem of your garment, my Lord?

(Sorry if some of these hard-hitting questions have already been used, over and over and over, at White House press conferences).

Harry Reid’s Kryptonite
Politico Magazine, by Jon Ralston    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/8/2014 6:38:59 AM     Post Reply
It all started with an email. The message landed in my inbox on Monday, March 24, sent by a source I trust. “The FEC Has a Question for Harry Reid,” the subject line teased, and inside was a link to a document on the Federal Election Commission’s website. The document itself didn’t seem all that sensational. “Please amend Schedule B supporting line 17 of your report to clarify the following description: ‘holiday gifts,’” it instructed Reid’s campaign office. The line item in question specified that $11,370 had been paid to one Ryan Elisabeth for said holiday gifts. I made a

George W. Bush has been called a lot of unkind things, and now this: Who knew Picasso dwelled within the 43rd president of the United States? The president whose troops nailed Saddam Hussein has joined Vladimir Putin, U.S. Grant, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter and Winston Churchill as heads of state with a credible claim to master of brush and palette. Mr. Putin, who like George W. dabbles in painting dogs, once “managed” the sale of one of his paintings to a Russian oligarch for more than $1 million dollars. Jimmy Carter sold an original oil for $250,000 at a

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Senate Approves Ted Cruz´s Bill
Denying Visa to Iran´s U.N. Ambassador

The Senate approved a bill Monday to bar a former hostage-taker tapped to be Iran´s ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States. By voice vote, Republicans and Democrats united behind the legislation sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that reflected congressional animosity toward Tehran and its selection of Hamid Aboutalebi. Iran´s envoy choice was a member of a Muslim student group that held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. The "nomination is a deliberate and unambiguous insult to the United States," Cruz said in remarks on the Senate

Obama dangles student-loan
freebie for midterm 2014 voters
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/8/2014 6:05:05 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama today suggested that’s he’ll pressure Congress to to reduce voters’ student-loan payments before the November elections. “We’ve got to make it easier to repay student loans,” he told a subdued and unresponsive audience at Bladensburg High School, in Prince George’s County, Md. He used the same student-loan pitch in the run-up to the 2012 election, which helped him improve his support among younger voters, many of whom are having difficulty earning enough in the Obama economy to pay off their college debts. In June 2012, Congress voted to delay a planned increase in student-loan interest rates, after

The Clinton-Bush post-presidency lovefest took on a new dimension tonight as another former president — George W. Bush — joined Bill Clinton for the NCAA men’s basketball final in Arlington, Texas. Clinton and George H.W.

Los Angeles -The stepson of Mickey Rooney today revealed the vicious family war that has tarnished the Hollywood great´s memory and made his last days wretched.

Before sentencing former Councilman John Drayman to one year in county jail for embezzling money from a local farmer’s market, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Marcus compared Drayman to other public officials who have made recent headlines for corruption-related charges. “In our world today, especially recently, every time you open the newspaper, you see politicians ripping off the public,” Marcus said, making specific references to the city of Bell scandal and the indictment last week of California Sen. Leland Yee. “And now we have Mr. Drayman who is now part of this landscape.” Drayman pled guilty last month to

A look at the pension situation in a few major U.S. cities with the worst-funded retirement systems, according to Morningstar: CHICAGO: Mayor Rahm Emanuel has pitched a plan to cut the city´s nearly $20 billion pension shortfall in half by reducing benefits and hiking property taxes. But the proposal has drawn fierce resistance from labor unions, taxpayer groups and even the fellow Democrats Emanuel needs to approve it. With just 35 percent of the money needed to fulfill its promises to retirees, Chicago´s pensions are the worst-funded of any big U.S. city. PHILADELPHIA: The city´s unfunded pension liability was $5.3

Hollywood Turns Against Obama
with ´Captain America: The Winter Soldier´
Breitbart Big Hollywood, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/7/2014 9:47:04 PM     Post Reply
Other than being far and away the best film yet to come out of the ho-hum Marvel Universe, "Captain America: Winter Soldier" is a blatant $175 million "screw you" to Barack Obama´s surveillance state, and especially the President´s dishonesty and rationale surrounding it. Obama might have destroyed America´s economic recovery and healthcare system, but we can at least thank him for inspiring a 4.5 star superhero movie. With the exception of the first "Iron Man," Marvel´s heavy mythology, even heavier CGI, and over-reliance on flashy Euro-trash villains disguised as non-humans has left me cold. This includes the first "Captain America,"

Wow, the blood-curdling hypocrisy of some people... Senator Reid has called the Koch brothers "unAmerican" tax cheats who are "against everything that is good for America." Today he tweeted out some more anti-Koch nonsense: (Tweet) Now we find out, his campaign accepted a donation from the unAmerican monsters in 2003???!!! Andrew Stiles of the Washington Free Beacon has the shocking report: According to campaign finance records, former Koch Industries lobbyist Robert P. Hall III donated $500 to Reid’s campaign in 2003. The Majority Leader should return that money to the Kochs tout suite, or he may as well start donning their insignia,

FORT WORTH — Hendrick Motorsports teammates Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson were involved in the first caution of Monday´s rain-delayed Duck Commander 500 with NASCAR´s most popular driver taking the blame. Earnhardt clipped the frontstretch grass on the 12th lap, blowing out the left-front tire in his No. 88 Chevrolet. He slammed the outside wall, and his car caught fire while limping to the turn 2 apron with heavy front-end damage. Earnhardt scrambled out of the car quickly and said he didn´t realize his car was headed into the grass because his vision was obscured. "I just didn´t see the grass,

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job.

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep.
