London – Large tapestry portraits of President Barack Obama were unveiled for guests at the U.S. Embassy in London over the weekend. The recently-installed, large-scale tapestry portraits were created by National Medal of Arts winner and renowned American painter, photographer Chuck Close. Close created the portraits by compiling and interweaving Polaroids of the president from an hour-long photo shoot done the summer before, the Washington Post reports. The portraits are nearly 8 feet tall and more than 6 feet wide, with the final piece looking like photos but feeling like textiles. Close used one photo of Obama smiling and another

So far not many media outlets have published this story. I guess the ´creepy factor´ has them relegating it to the censure pile.

Yuck. They have a big brother feel to them. His Clinton portrait is disrespectful of the man and the Presidency. Never thought I´d say that about Clinton.

FTA: "The tapestry was one of 10 such portraits available for $100,000 apiece as part of a fundraiser also supporting the Obama Victory Fund."

"Obama Victory Fund" - wow. Is this his version of the "spoils of war" or is it fundraising for his next term?

This is from CBS...and, surprisingly, the comments, in the section following this ´creepy´ article, all sound similar to those here on L-com.....This just might be the beginning of the end?

However, it will depend on the amount of ´coverage´ this travesty gets. There should be 24/7 outrage; however, the media will no doubt keep it low key for their idol.

Televangelist Joel Osteen´s church in Houston announced Monday that $600,000 in Sunday donations were stolen from its safe last weekend, MyFoxHouston.com reported. The heist at Lakewood Church wasn´t discovered until 8:30 a.m. Monday morning when a church employee and off-duty Harris County Sheriff´s Officer noticed the break in, the report said. Investigators believe the theft occurred sometime between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. The donations were from services on March 8 and March 9 and included cash, checks and credit cards. Lakewood has asked anyone who attended services this weekend to pay attention to their accounts and report any suspicious

Recall Could Cost GM

General Motors Co.´s (GM) recall of 1.6 million vehicles could prove to be one of the most costly in automotive history. The company not only faces fines. The legal liability triggered by what could be thousands of personal injury lawsuits may be just as damaging to the reputation of GM´s important brands, which almost certainly will erode sales. At the heart of the injury to GM is the accusation that some of its employees knew about an ignition switch fault as early as 2004. Interviews of GM management in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee may draw the

U.S.Secretary of State John Kerry listens to a question from a reporter during a news conference at the U.S. Embassy in Rome March 6, 2014. On Saturday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that the Kremlin annexing Crimea would “close any available space for diplomacy.” (Snip) Given that Kerry says that the diplomatic window would be closed if Crimea joins Russia, it doesn´t sound like the White House has come to terms with what´s happening.

SAN FRANCISCO - California´s greenhouse gas reduction law already has shaken up the state´s industrial sector, costing it more than $1.5 billion in pollution permit fees. It´s now poised to hit the pocketbooks of everyday Californians. Starting next year, the law will force fuel distributors into the same cap-and-trade marketplace as utilities and major manufacturers. The oil industry says it will lead to price increases of at least 12 cents a gallon immediately, while state regulators say any price spikes could vary widely, from barely noticeable to double-digits. Anticipating angst at the pump, a leading state lawmaker is raising concerns

Authorities spent most of Saturday trying to disperse several large gatherings around the UMass campus for the party traditionally held the Saturday before spring break, Amherst police said.

CHICAGO — When superrich Republican Bruce Rauner decided to run for governor of Illinois, it was clear this wouldn´t be the kind of race the state was accustomed to. Rauner, who made his fortune as a venture capitalist, was new to campaigning and bragged of being beholden to no one. He came out swinging at entrenched special interests and "government union bosses" with an intensity not seen before. (Snip) Rauner is considered the heavy favorite in the four-way GOP primary, as reflected in fundraising and recent polls. The outcome will determine who faces Gov. Pat Quinn, whom many Democrats see

PARIS — U.S. and European diplomats failed in a daylong effort to get Russia and Ukraine to begin direct negotiations aimed at ending Moscow´s military incursion into the former Soviet state, raising the prospect of a protracted standoff. In a hectic day of talks that shifted from the American embassy in Paris to the presidential Élysée Palace to the French foreign ministry, officials focused on arranging a meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his new Ukrainian counterpart, Andrii Deshchytsia. When that encounter didn´t happen—even though they were in the same building—Secretary of State John Kerry played down the failure

In a city that isn’t known for its religiosity, Presbyterian pastor Rev.

CHICAGO - Chicago broke a history record, although people there aren’t rounding a victory lap. Winter temperatures in the city reached zero degrees F. or below the most number of days since recordkeeping began. “It’s not just perception that it’s felt particularly brutal this year. The numbers say it,” National Weather Service meteorologist Richard Castro told the Chicago Tribune Tuesday. The unusually brittle winter brought subzero temperatures to Chicago early, starting in November, where they continued periodically through this week, when temperatures fell to minus-3 degrees at O’Hare International Airport, totaling 26 days when temperatures hit zero or lower.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine — Crimea’s new Prime Minister says he is taking control of all military forces and government departments in the territory, declaring an official break with Kiev. In a press conference Tuesday Sergey Aksenov, who was named Prime Minister last week, said the new government in Kiev was illegal and “mad”. “We don’t trust the Kiev government and we asked help from the Russian federation to help us with the situation in Crimea,” he said. “We control everything, every activity.” He asked all Ukrainian military forces in Crimea to lay down their arms and leave their bases.

The majority of uninsured Americans are still largely unaware of Obamacare and the crucial March 31 deadline to sign up for coverage through the new exchanges. Those without health insurance April 1 and beyond will be subjected to a tax penalty imposed under the new healthcare law. The latest survey from Kaiser Family Foundation found some 76 percent of Americans without coverage are unaware of the deadline. Moreover, just 12 percent of uninsured respondents said they knew “a lot” about Obamacare, while 24 percent knew “some” information about the law, 36 percent knew “a little” and 26 percent knew “nothing

As a member of the Police Department’s elite scuba-diving unit, Oscar Smith probed the waterways of New York, his tasks both dramatic and painstaking. He has dived into the water in search of helicopter crash victims, and has sifted through the foot-deep muck at the bottom of the East River, looking for murder weapons thrown from bridges.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.
