Obama reveals his obliviousness at Monticello
Washington Times, by Charles Hurt

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/12/2014 5:26:47 AM

America’s president — heir to the world’s greatest document of freedom ever drawn up by man — strode across the hallowed grounds of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. With his hands clasped behind his back as a fuehrer surveying his troops or his kingdom, he told a gaggle of onlookers, “That’s the good thing about being president. I can do whatever I want.” It may have been a lame attempt at despot humor. But it fell terribly flat and reveals a shocking unawareness of himself and what so many American people think of him. As if nobody in the White House grasps

I can´t wait for the Useless Media to attack their Messiah for this asinine, power-mad statement.

I´m kidding of course, it´ll be ´´He was having some fun and the extreme rightwing should buy a sense of humor with their millions.´´

I hope they were able to get a priest in there to rid that wonderful place of Skippy´s visit. TJ must have done a 360 in his grave. It makes me nauseous to think of him there.

Not according to The Mooch: He can do anything he wants except smoke, eat cheeseburgers, talk out of turn and have open affairs. So he takes out his repression and pathology, guided by his Communist Faith, on the rest of the world.

To call him gauche would be to seriously understate.

He is arrogant and imperious - and proud of it.

Self-Appointed DOJ ‘Voting Rights Gladiator’

DOJ Voting Section attorney Bradley Heard was in the courtroom of federal judge Eric Melgren today. Heard was trying to persuade Melgren that Kansas can’t ensure that foreigners aren’t registering to vote in Kansas. Things didn’t go so well for Mr. Heard, which is surprising because he is a “Voting Rights Gladiator.” A what? That’s right — according to Bradley Heard’s own Twitter account, he is a “Voting Rights Gladiator” in addition to being an “Outside Agitator.” What is most curious about Mr. Heard’s Twitter feed is how much official business he discusses.

Kennedy cousin Skakel granted request

Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, who was released from prison last year after he was granted a new trial in the 1975 slaying of a neighbor, has received approval to have a GPS tracking device temporarily relocated from his ankle while he attends his son´s ski competition. During an earlier ski competition this month, Skakel was unable to accompany his son up the mountain with other parents because his ankle couldn´t fit in the ski boot with the bracelet, his attorneys said in court papers. As a result, they said he was required to hike up the mountain alone, which took two

Laser bombardment yields energy milestone

The event was over in a fraction of a scintilla of a blink of an eye and released a burst of energy that´s not particularly impressive by most standards. But it´s being hailed as a milestone in a decades-long quest to harness the power of nuclear fusion, the same process that powers the sun. For the first time, scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California say they produced more energy from a reaction in their fuel source than they put into the fuel, said Omar Hurricane, the physicist who led the experiment.

Congress Restores Benefits

After extending the nation’s borrowing authority for the next year, the Senate voted Wednesday to restore the cost of living adjustment for military retirees’ benefits after it was cut as part of the Murray-Ryan budget deal in December. The Senate voted 95 to 3 to restore the benefits one day after the bill cleared the House. It now heads to President Obama for his signature. In December, the budget deal crafted by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., cut the cost of living adjustment for military pensions to one percent below the rate of inflation for veterans

Bob Costas has a case of mild pinkeye at the Sochi Olympics. Here’s what we know. The 2014 Sochi Olympics, known thus far for Olga Graf’s slight cleavage and Putin’s ?massive slights, finally has an Olympic Moment to cherish. It’s one for the ages; a sure-fire where-were-you-when event. Bob Costas has pink eye. Yes, NBC’s veteran sports reporter, who seems to sip from the Dick Clark ?fountain of frisky youth, has sidelined himself because of the discomfort from his inflamed eyes.

Christie Campaign Can Use
Funds to Pay Bridge Legal Bills

Governor Chris Christie’s campaign won approval from New Jersey election regulators to use donations to cover the organization’s legal costs stemming from investigations of intentional traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge. The campaign has been subpoenaed by both the state Assembly and federal prosecutors, and today’s action by the Election Law Enforcement Commission in Trenton will allow it to gather and deliver documents for about 40 employees, according to Mark Sheridan, a Newark attorney for the campaign. Elected officials have used campaign accounts to pay legal bills. U.S. Representative Charles Rangel, a New York Democrat, reported fees as the

PayPal President´s credit card

SAN FRANCISCO - PayPal President David Marcus said on Monday that his credit card details were stolen and the information was used to finance a fraudulent spending spree. Marcus said the card was probably "skimmed" at the hotel he was staying at, or at a merchant he visited, during a recent trip to the U.K. "They then cloned it and went on a shopping spree," the executive wrote on Twitter. Marcus noted that his credit card had EMV chip technology, a more secure system currently in use in Europe. But that didn´t stop the data from being stolen and used for a "ton

House Speaker John Boehner last week pulled the plug on his immigration reform “principles” after his fellow Republicans refused to go along. One reason why the proposal received a cold reception was that the GOP’s self-appointed moral guardian Ann Coulter bandied surveys showing that immigrants will “wreck the country” with their Big Government-loving ways. “It´s not their [Republicans’] position on amnesty that immigrants don´t like,” she harrumphed. “It´s Republicans´ support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism.” But if Republicans love liberty and small government, they sure have a weird way of showing it. There is no

McConnell´s Primary Opponent Supported TARP
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 2/12/2014 5:57:38 AM     Post Reply
Matt Bevin, who is challenging Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky Republican primary, has made McConnell’s support in 2008 for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) a centerpiece of his insurgent campaign. It’s an understandable move on Bevin’s part. McConnell has a strong conservative voting record. Without the TARP vote, Bevin would be reduced mainly to generic complaints that McConnell is too “establishment.” But now it turns out that Bevin, an investment fund manager at the time, also supported TARP. In addition, he supported the Federal Reserve’s decision to begin buying commercial paper issued by banks. Politico, says it has obtained an October

Hillary´s War on Women

If a conservative politician called an exploited intern a “narcissistic loony toon,” his career would be over. But Hillary Clinton will pay almost no price for describing Monica Lewinsky in those terms. The left’s sympathy for Sandra Fluke and its lectures on the dangers of name-calling won’t resurface for Lewinsky. Liberal pols, both those who mistreat women and those who excuse the mistreatment, enjoy a standing exemption from feminism’s customary strictures. Hillary is free to war on Bill Clinton’s women to her heart’s content. But perhaps the most telling revelation in the Washington Free Beacon’s story about Hillary’s candid conversations with

A Washington, D.C. man is facing a large fine and possible jail time after he was arrested for having an inoperable shotgun shell in his home. The shell was a souvenir that Mark Witaschek decided to keep from a hunting trip years earlier. Witaschek, a businessman with no criminal record, is scheduled to appear at a hearing today following the raid by police in July 2012. On Fox and Friends this morning, Witaschek explained that the raid came a month after his estranged wife accused him of threatening her with a gun.

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

One guest thought the cost of the dress was close to $10,000. "Well, first of all, I love the dress on her because I think it´s so elegant and so simple. I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It´s got that sort of poof at the bottom that´s very sort of billowy at the same time. It´s strapless. I think we want to call that French blue, maybe," said a guest. "Some people might call it periwinkle and it´s got this sort of jet bodice and everything, and I think it´s realy pretty.

Every year, prior to Valentine’s Day, the Vermont Teddy Bear Co. runs ads advising guys that the most romantic thing in the world – the best gift a love-struck guy can give his girl – is a teddy bear. This year’s ad features “Big Hunka Love Bear.” Big Hunka is 4½ feet tall, and the company says he’s “stuffed with more than enough love to last a lifetime.” Hey, giving your girl a cute little teddy bear for Valentine’s Day could be a sweet thing to do. But, it’s the way these ads are put together that cause the creep-out: the girl

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before.

The first lady chose a dramatic Carolina Herrera ball gown with a voluminous skirt and lace-overlay top. The blue and black gown is the first dress with sleeves Obama has worn to a state dinner. Previously she donned one-shouldered pieces from Peter Soronen and Doo-Ri Chung, and a strapless gown by Naeem Khan for the administration’s first official state dinner in 2009 for India. The dress includes a black hand-sewn beaded embroidery applique scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset, according to a statement from the designer.

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

Michelle Obama´s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left. But the First Lady has now outdone herself, and because a picture is worth a thousand words, the damage may be a bit more serious than the occasional grumble over designer shoes and livin´ large. After all, millions of Americans are mired in unemployment, underemployment, and hopelessness. So in the face of all this, Michelle

Poverty and unemployment are at near-record levels, the economy is stalled, and a record 47 million Americans are on food stamps, yet aides for first lady Michelle Obama’s tweeted out a picture of her two dogs apparently dining at a table laid with crystal and china. “Bone appétit!,” the aides added to the insensitive tweet, using the language of France’s queen Marie Antoinette, who was executed by radicals in 1793. One dog appears to be wearing a jeweled necklace. The other is wearing a red ribbon. Obama’s media courtiers applauded the ostentatious display of canine luxury

Washington – Continuing his push to use executive powers as a way of advancing his agenda, President Barack Obama will announce Thursday a new effort to help improve the lives of young African-American males. A White House official said the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative would partner government with businesses to “make sure that every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up has an opportunity to get ahead and reach his full potential.” Young African-American men are unemployed at a higher rate than the population at large, and are more likely than peers of other races
