Oneida Indians thank Obama
for comments on Redskins

USA Today, by Erik Brady

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 11/13/2013 10:45:06 AM

Oneida Indian Nation representative Ray Halbritter, the public face of a campaign against the Washington pro football club´s team name, thanked President Barack Obama for speaking out on the issue during a meeting at the White House Tuesday. Halbritter´s comments were met with applause from leaders of a dozen tribes who spoke with the president about a range of economic development issues important to Indian Country, from job creation to increased access to capital to jurisdictional challenges. Obama said last month in an interview with The Associated Press that if he owned the Washington NFL team he´d think about changing the name.

Comments:
To show their appreciation, I hear the tribe also gave Barry an honorary Indian name - Chief Walking Eagle.

Good catch, OP! Great joke.

I´m sure there are infinitely more economic and social problems for these grievance groups to be concerned about. But that would likely involve self-analysis. So let´s not do that, and just whine about a totally insignificant issue.

Oneida tribe and Halbritter have a grievance?

Two words: Turning Stone Casino.

This tribe makes money hand over fist through gambling. Through Halbritter (whose native american bona fides are suspect)they use that money as political currency for this petty P.C. war over a team name.

Wait just a minute...is their SKIN actually RED (fire truck red), pink or is it another shade of brown?

How is it everyone is entitled to be agrieved?

Tyrant Obama will force
liberalism on America
Washington Times, by Emily Miller    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 2/5/2014 11:40:00 PM     Post Reply
Barack Obama was once a constitutional law professor, but now views the founding document as irrelevant. The president is ruling by decree, instead of working with a divided Congress. The Founding Fathers would be appalled by the way the current occupant of the White House has usurped power to get his agenda passed. There is nothing to restrain Mr. Obama, now a lame duck, from forcing his liberalism on America. For example, the White House declared Wednesday that it will not go through Congress to create regional “climate hubs” to deal with the supposed crisis of “climate change.” This comes

Liz Hurley denies Clinton affair

AS celebrity gossip goes, it takes some beating: actress and model Elizabeth Hurley has a year-long affair with Bill Clinton while he was US president. Throw in the suggestion that they had a liaison in the White House while Hillary Clinton was next door, and that Mr Clinton ended it when he realised he was falling in love, and you have a story that rivals Marilyn Monroe´s alleged fling with John F Kennedy. But when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, as Ms Hurley pointed out yesterday when she was forced to deny the "ludicrously silly" report

WASHINGTON -- At least 50 Americans have joined the mix of extremist groups that are fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad, and some could try to mount terrorist attacks at home, U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday. (snip)A U.S. intelligence official told The Times that the total includes at least 50 Americans, a more concrete estimate than authorities have given previously. He declined to be identified because he was not authorized to discuss the figure publicly.

Kerry: Chemical weapons deal

President Obama´s chemical weapons deal with Syria has “improved” Syrian President Bashar Assad´s position, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged Wednesday. Kerry´s admission comes after Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress last week the deal “adds legitimacy” to the Assad regime, even as it has the potential to eliminate a threat to the U.S. The deal is coming under fire, after Syria blew crucial deadlines in recent weeks, turning over only about 5 percent of its arsenal. The Assad regime has until June 30 to eliminate the program. “It´s fair to say that Assad has improved his position a little

The U.S. postal service inspector general put out a report last week suggesting an intriguing way to shore up the ailing institution’s finances: Let the mailman double as a bank teller. The plan? The post office would offer services designed to appeal to America’s unbanked and under-banked — the more than 50 million adults who either have no checking or savings account, or use high-cost, predatory services like payday loans to supplement traditional banking needs.(snip)What gives? Is it just that bank archenemy Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose relationship with financial services most resembles Batman’s with the Joker, said she liked the

Poll: Clinton could be vulnerable
to more conservative Dem

Posted By: Scottyboy- 2/5/2014 4:13:21 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON -- A poll indicated Wednesday that if former U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton runs for president her biggest challenge could come from a more conservative Democrat. While the poll, conducted by CNN, finds Clinton an overwhelming favorite with 70 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independent voters saying they would support her if she mounts a second presidential bid in 2016, the split on the remaining Democrats is surprising. Conventional wisdom has held Clinton´s biggest liability in a potential primary is from the liberal wing of the party, where President Barack Obama found support to defeat her in their historic 2008 primary race.

The man who found the body of Philip Seymour Hoffman has claimed he was the Oscar-winning actor´s gay lover. David Bar Katz also told The National Enquirer that he saw Hoffman "freebasing cocaine" the night before he died. The actor died of a suspected heroin overdose and was reportedly found with a needle in his arm. "We were homosexual lovers. We had a relationship," said Katz, a playwright. "We were planning to go the Super Bowl together and have a really nice day. This is so terrible." Katz also said that he that he never thought the actor's addiction had "reached that level"

The vice president’s feisty niece took a conditional dismissal deal Wednesday in her misdemeanor Manhattan cop attack case. Caroline Biden wasn’t in Manhattan Criminal Court as her case was resolved because she’s undergoing inpatient treatment for “her issues” including anger management, her lawyer James Liguori said. If Biden, 26, stays out of trouble for six months, her case will be dismissed and sealed. The spitfire relative of Vice President Joe Biden was arrested for assaulting a cop and refusing arrest, but none of the officers were injured in the temper tantrum, Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Gunther said.

The Philadelphia district attorney is speaking out against President Obama’s nominee for a top Justice Department post, saying his link to the case of a convicted cop killer “sends a message of contempt” to officers who risk their lives every day. District Attorney Seth Williams, a Democrat, said Debo Adegbile is “ill-suited for the pivotal role” of leading the Civil Rights Division. He voiced his concerns in a Feb. 4 letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Ranking Member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. The committee is expected to vote on Adegbile’s nomination on Thursday. “Mr. Adegbile has impressive credentials,” Williams wrote. “His

Washington - While his predecessor Hillary Clinton, and his colleague Vice President Joe Biden may be contemplating another run at the White House, Secretary of State John Kerry says he is out for 2016. "I´m out of politics. I have no plans whatsoever, this is my last stop," Kerry said in an exclusive interview with CNN´s "The Lead with Jake Tapper."

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.

Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time.
