fabulous fashions?

Associated Press, by Nancy Benac*

WASHINGTON- Michelle Obama´s fashionable clothing has become something of a given in her five-plus years as first lady. Yet her wardrobe still is the subject of endless public fascination and one long-simmering question: Who pays for those incredible outfits? It´s no small matter. Her high-low fashion choices mix everyday, off-the-rack fare with custom creations from top designers whose gowns can run into five figures. In recent weeks, Mrs. Obama has turned heads with a forest-green Naeem Khan dress at the opening of a new costume gallery at New York´s Metropolitan Museum of Art. She shimmered in a silver Marchesa gown

I have no doubt who picks up the tab - us taxpayers. The Wookie is a grifter.

Looked at that one link for 1st ladies dos and don´ts - #2 is STUPID. First people complain that 1st ladies spend too much and then this piece of advice "don´t buy off rack". WHO CARES?!

Texas’ legislative districts accused of

and protecting Republicans
Washington Post, by Hunter Schwarz    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/15/2014 1:46:18 PM     Post Reply
Texas lawmakers responsible for redistricting the state’s legislative boundaries discriminated against Hispanic voters and tried to protect Republican incumbents, the U.S. Justice Department argued in a federal court in San Antonio on Monday. The redistricting efforts under fire are the state’s 2011 U.S. and state House districts, which were already thrown out by federal judges in favor of a map that included more Democratic-leaning districts, according to the Associated Press. Attorneys for the state denied the accusations during remarks for the case, arguing there was no concerted effort to discriminate and boundaries were drawn the best they could considering they

It must be an election year - which could worry one political party in particular. Vice President Joe Biden himself is among the Democratic heavyweights who will attend Netroots Nation, which begins on Thursday in Detroit and is billed as “the largest gathering of progressives and the Democratic activist base” by organizers. They expect at least 3,000 eager attendees at the three-day event. “It makes perfect sense that Vice President Biden would address the folks who will knock on doors, make phone calls and raise awareness for the issues that are most important to our country,” declares Raven Brooks, executive

Fort Worth, TX - Seven teachers and school administrators are undergoing firearms training in Fort Worth so they can have access to guns on campus. The first class of school marshals began training Monday in an 80-hour program at Tarrant County College´s Northwest campus. The nine-day course will cover gun use, violence prevention and active-shooter scenarios. The state legislature created the new class of law enforcement last year through the Protection of Texas Children Act, sponsored by state Rep. Jason Villalba. The Dallas Republican said the marshals will protect schools against violent attacks similar to the 2012 shooting at the Sandy

On Tuesday morning, NBC’s Today refused to cover the latest news in the Veterans Affairs scandal as the House Veterans Affairs Committee heard testimony Monday night from additional whistle-blowers who faced punishment from superiors for identifying allegedly manipulated response times for veterans who filed benefit and disability claims. Coverage of the latest news saw only two minutes and 26 seconds of air time total with only 23 seconds of that from ABC’s Good Morning America. Meanwhile, CBS This Morning spent two minutes and three seconds on the story during the 7:00 a.m. hour. [MP3 audio here; Video below]

House GOP linking trafficking
law changes to Obama border bill
The Hill (Washington DC), by Cristina Marcos & Peter Schroeder    Original Article

House GOP leaders on Tuesday said they will insist that changes to a human trafficking law be included in any legislation responding to the wave of child immigrants crossing the border. Republicans have blamed the influx of children at the border on the 2008 law, which they say has served as an incentive for people to enter the United States. The law allows minors entering the country from Central America, but not Mexico, to request asylum hearings. President Obama has asked for $3.7 billion in emergency supplemental appropriations to care for people crossing the border, and to hire more judges

HOUSTON — Shell Oil Co. today announced an offshore discovery in the Gulf of Mexico it believes contains 100 million barrels of oil equivalent. The discovery was made about 75 miles offshore in the eastern portion of the Gulf in water that’s nearly 7,500 feet deep. The find marks the third major discovery for Shell in an area known as the Norphlet play, where the company has been exploring for more than a decade. The discovery was made at an exploration well called Rydberg. “The Rydberg discovery builds upon our leadership position in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and its

Jose Antonio Vargas, journalist, immigration activist and America’s most famous undocumented immigrant, has been detained at the airport in McAllen, Texas, according to his nonproft, Define American. The Pulitzer-winning journalist is being held at a detention center at the airport after attempting to fly out of the city. Vargas was in town to document what’s going on in the shelters for young migrants who have flooded the border. He told me this weekend, in an interview Sunday, that because he has traveled so extensively throughout the country, including on the border in California, he didn’t recognize that travel in McAllen

“So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.” –President Obama, weekly address, July 12, 2014 ~This has become a standard line in the president’s oratory, as part of making his case that he’s “acted this year to help working Americans on my own– when Congress won’t act.” The president started on this path on June 27, during a speech in Minnesota: “You know, sometimes I’m forcibly, you know, politic about how I say things, but I’m finding lately that I just want to say what’s on my mind.

In the beginning of the 2009 flu season, Barack Obama declared the H1N1 swine flu a national emergency. By October of that year 1,000 people had already died, and according to the president there was the threat of a pandemic. In order to hasten treatment and convince Americans to line up like lemmings for a flu shot, Obama gave former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a one-time authorization to bypass standard federal regulations to quickly respond to the outbreak. The president repeatedly warned the public that a pandemic was approaching, and that the numbers of people getting sick

Protests from local elected officials in Maryland this weekend forced the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) to cancel its plans to send illegal immigrant children to an Army Reserve center in Westminster, which is about 35 miles from Baltimore. Maryland Democrat Gov. Martin O´Malley said illegal immigrant children flooding across the border should be considered "refugees" and all be given asylum status, but after Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) publicized the federal government´s last-minute plans to sneak illegal immigrant children into Maryland, there was considerable blowback. HHS backed off, citing things like insufficient access to drinking water at the facility.

The unprecedented shipment of illegal immigrants from Texas to Massachusetts is not only straining the resources of local jails, it is costing taxpayers millions of dollars for health care, the Bristol County sheriff said yesterday. At least one illegal immigrant — brought to Massachusetts from Texas by Immigration and Customs Enforcement — is in a hospital with 24-hour surveillance, according to Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson, who is responsible for holding about 80 adults who are awaiting deportation. “We have two officers, around the clock, at the hospital taking care of this person, and that’s one bill.

With Hamas’ decision to begin firing hundreds of rockets into Israel, precipitating Israeli action to stop that rocket fire, anti-Jew sentiment has now exploded full-force onto the public scene. This isn’t unprecedented – each time Israel acts in its own self-defense, whether in Gaza or in southern Lebanon, Jew-haters around the world have utilized the opportunity to target Jews. Such evil has now shown its ugly face around the world. Here are the latest incidents across the globe against Jews, utilizing Israel’s defensive activities as an excuse: Los Angeles.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists. (Why not forget; the president has.)

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America.

Hawking, 71, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, had accepted an invitation to headline the fifth annual president´s conference, Facing Tomorrow, in June, which features major international personalities, attracts thousands of participants and this year will celebrate Peres´s 90th birthday.

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again.

According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen. While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
