That´s $3,400 per wear! Michelle Obama
wears controversial J Mendel jacket
AGAIN despite backlash last year
over its $6,800 price tag

Daily Mail [UK], by Tamara Abraham

Michelle Obama has once again stepped out in her $6,800 J Mendel jacket, despite fielding a backlash last time she wore the pricey garment. [Snip] But the last time she wore the embellished garment, in July 2012 at a Buckingham Palace reception in London, political commentators took issue with the fact that she had spent so much on fashion while so many in the U.S. are suffering financially. A post on the Gateway Pundit blog remarked that the design ´cost more than the average American family makes in a month ($4,284)´. ´She does this as Americans continue to suffer through a

Thank you for those observant post. I suggest "Lipstick Grifter Soi Disant Queen." She´s a Queen in her own pea-sized brain perhaps... By the by, why was she disbarred (was she ever an attorney?) and who is now in the P.R. hospital job that she "filled," in the full meaning of that word, in Chicago?

If you have any doubts, it´s now clear we have a couple of grifters in the WH. Oh my.

Mrs. Obama is angry and bitter because she was born black. There is a lot of self loathing in the black community.

Just because it cost $6,800, that doesn´t make it attractive.

It just makes her seem stupid for wearing it.

Wonder what the 0´s had to promise the girls to get them to smile? This may have been the first time I´ve seen the young one doing anything but scowling. Unfortunately, their taste in attire matches the Mooch...who was robbed by about $6000 for that ill fitting top no matter how many times she wears it.

There are Americans now earning less than the jacket cost because their hours were cut.

#4 is right, hence all of the plastic surgery on her nose, chin and lips, and the wigs which are all straight haired or softly curled. Everything she has done has been in an attempt to look more white. Since she obviously loathes whites, it´s a sign of some deep seated emotional illness.

Does the woman not own any panty hose? I´ve never seen her anything but bare legged, even in the dead of winter. Trashy. At least her daughters have enough sense to wear them. And the side view looks like she´s wearing an oversized bustle. Is Edwardian clothing back in fashion?

BTW, I read yesterday that the Hawaii extravaganza is 17 days.

Why is it that the higher the price tag, the uglier the garment gets? Seriously. Unless somebody did all that embroidery by hand, not machine, Michelle got taken to the cleaners yet again.

I suspect the real point here though is an in our faces one. She can afford to pay over $6K for a single jacket, and we can´t. Lipstick meet pig is right.

OK folks, I´m as disgusted at these low-class jackasses as anyone, but I think the Obamas pay for their own clothes. If she spent that much on the jacket I would hope she would wear it enough to "get the good out of it". We have too many other issues to worry about other than how she spends money from her own pocket. The vacation is a different thing. The taxpayers foot the bill for the transportation and the security at a hefty price.

The true definition of ´style´ is the ability to look like a million bucks in an outfit purchased at Goodwill. I know this for a fact; my mother was known for her style but when I was small my parents had very little. My mother HAD to shop Goodwill since she had no other choice. But with her innate sense of style and great taste she always looked fabulous (for mere pennies).
I don´t even think the total cost of her entire wardrobe over 50 years of marriage cost anywhere close to 6800.00 dollars.

Let´s see Michelle shop Goodwill and see what she comes up with.

What #33 said. I have a tall, slender niece who is a marathon runner. She doesn´t have an ounce of fat on her. She likes to tell me about the good deals she gets on Goodwill clothing. She says that they have good clothing cheap - so why spend more? She is a girl that could wear ANYthing & look beautiful.

University of East London bans segregated

Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country.

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
