Michelle Obama returns to NYC
to mine Wall Street funds for DNC

New York Post, by Emily Smith

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/3/2014 11:03:04 AM

Just when we thought there couldn’t be any more Democratic donors on Wall Street with money left to channel to the DNC, Michelle Obama is back in town for another “intimate” fund-raiser. Evercore Partners’ Charles Myers is hosting a “round-table discussion” with the first lady at his Midtown home July 10 with tickets from $10,000 to $32,400. Myers e-mailed prospective attendees including Wall Street colleagues, “This will be a small lunch limited to only 20 guests, and therefore an opportunity to have an open conversation with the first lady on a wide range of issues (as well as a personal photo opportunity).” He

Shakedown!! Queen Mooch graces them with her appearance. I wouldn´t walk across the street to see that disgraceful hack, much less pay $10,000 to $32,400.

Emily, please, please NEVER use the words "Michelle Obama" and "intimate" in the same sentence. Now, where did I put that MindBleach©?

If it wasn´t for marrying the right stooge, she´d be ´working the street´ on Wall Street, or maybe 8th Avenue after midnight...

Through July--Gov´t Runs $460B Deficit
Cybercast News Service, by Ali Meyer    Original Article

Inflation-adjusted federal tax revenues hit a record $2,469,178,000,000 for the first 10 months of fiscal year this July, but the federal government still ran a $460,450,000,000 deficit during that time, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. Each month, the Treasury publishes the government’s “total receipts,” including all revenue from individual income taxes, corporate income taxes, social insurance and retirement taxes (including Social Security and Medicare taxes), unemployment insurance taxes, excise taxes, estate and gift taxes, customs duties, and “miscellaneous receipts.” In constant 2014 dollars, the $2,469,178,000,000 that the federal government collected from October through July in fiscal 2014 was $129,126,250,000

Rep. Diane Black (R., Tenn.) sent a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Wednesday warning that fraudulent Obamacare subsidies could cost taxpayers billions if the administration fails to remedy over 300,000 inconsistencies relating to applicants’ immigration status. Black, who sits on the House Ways and Means and Budget Committees, introduced legislation that would prohibit the payment of subsidies unless an applicant’s information is fully verified. The income verification system within Healthcare.gov, which is used to determine subsidies, has still not been completed. “The numerous delays by HHS and the inability to resolve inconsistencies within the 90-day window required in statute has

OMAHA—China last month conducted another test of a satellite-killing missile that reflects Chinese efforts to weaponize space, the commander of the U.S. Strategic Command said Wednesday. “It’s very problematic to see China working to weaponize space in tests like this one they just had, and so [it’s] very concerning to me as the U.S. Strategic Command commander, and to our nation at large, given our dependency on that capability,” said Adm. Cecil D. Haney, Strategic Command chief. Haney, speaking to reporters after remarks to a Stratcom-sponsored conference on nuclear deterrence, also voiced worries about the recent increase in Russian strategic nuclear bomber

Fox News Poll: Majorities disapprove

Voters are generally dissatisfied with how President Obama is handling the world’s hot spots -- most give him a thumbs-down for the job he is doing on Iraq, Israel and Ukraine. At the same time, they approve of U.S. airstrikes he’s ordered against ISIS militants in Iraq. That’s according to a new Fox News national poll released Wednesday. Click here for the poll results. Amid new cold war anxieties, most voters say Obama hasn’t been tough enough on Russia, and that Vladimir Putin doesn’t take Obama seriously. A 74-percent majority thinks Obama hasn’t been tough enough on Russia, up from 66 percent in March.

ABC reporter Jon Karl grilled deputy White House spokesman Eric Schultz about a new report showing how many executives who pursue corporate mergers overseas to avoid onerous U.S. tax laws — a move Obama has called “unpatriotic” — have donated millions to the Democratic Party and President Obama’s former campaigns. On Wednesday, Bloomberg reported that top Obama and Democratic donors — including an investment banker who hosted a fundraiser for the president, a co-chairman of the 2012 Democratic National Convention and a bundler who raised $200,000 for Obama’s reelection campaign — are all guilty of pursuing “corporate inversions,” which Obama

MSNBC host Michael Eric Dyson claimed President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder would be “great choices” as justices for The Supreme Court of the United States. Taking over for Ed Schultz on “The Ed Show” Wednesday, the Georgetown University professor broke down the two top officials’ chances of earning a lifetime chance on the bench after they leave office in 2016. Dyson said he doesn’t think Obama would be interested in a Supreme Court appointment. “I think that, look — the man is so busy now, and he’ll be even busier when he’s out of office,” he explained. “Doing all

The State Department claimed Wednesday that they have been “looking at” developing a long-term strategy to fight ISIL in both Iraq and Syria for a year. The United States has stressed repeatedly that its current limited missions in Iraq against ISIL are not long-term solutions. “We are looking long-term at how we fight ISIL,” said State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf. Asked by a reporter to clarify, Harf said, “We’ve been looking at that for quite some time. That’s not new.” “We’ve been looking at that for months and months, even before the latest offenses that started in June against Mosul – for, you

Films based on dystopian novels have become wildly popular in the last few years. Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games hit the big screen two years ago starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, with the sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire following in 2013. Earlier this year, Veronica Roth’s Divergent found new life in a film featuring Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet, and next month James Dashner’s The Maze Runner also will hit theaters. But well before any of these books were written, there was Lois Lowry’s The Giver, a short, but profound novel that many of us read in the

Immigrant students inundated a Georgia school district registration center this week seeking to sign up for classes. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reports that nearly 200 families with immigrant students were waiting outside the DeKalb County registration facility early Monday morning. “We got here, and there was a long line,” Sandra Nunez, head of the school district’s International Welcome Center, told AJC. The report comes as the Department of Education has made it clear that illegal immigrant students are “entitled to” public eduction and the southern border is in crisis with tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors entering

U.S. civil rights advocates aired their concerns about the recent Michael Brown shooting to the United Nations in Geneva, according to a press call from the organizations on Wednesday. “This issue was front and center,” Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP Washington Bureau, explained during the call. According to Shelton, Trayvon Martin’s mother Sabrina Fulton and Jordan Davis’s father Ron Davis told their stories about losing their teenage children in shootings in each of the pre-briefings of the process. “I think that everyone was outraged and horrified to hear that, yet again, it had happened in St. Louis, Missouri,” he said.

A coalition of 20 transparency and ethics watchdog groups are fed up with CIA Director John Brennan´s leadership and are calling on President Obama to ask him to step down. The group, which includes the Project on Government Oversight, the Sunlight Foundation and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, among many others, on Tuesday accused the CIA of abusing its power and obstructing the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into agency’s use of torture in the years following the Sept. 11 attacks. In a letter to President Obama, the groups, which includes a number of left-leaning organizations, argued that the CIA

Regulars at the Vineyard Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard were gob-smacked when President Obama unexpectedly strolled onto a nearby green and they were immediately frisked. “There was no warning he was coming,” sniffed a guest. “There was security on the way in, but no word as to why they were there.” The member added, “While eating, overlooking the golf course, guests had to stand up and be wanded.” One asked if he could finish his hot soup first, and an Obama security man cracked, ominously, “So, you’re not cooperating?” But Obama did, “go around and shake everyone’s hand waiting on the course.”

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh argued Tuesday that Robin Williams committed suicide because of his “leftist world view.” “What is the left’s world view in general?” Mr. Limbaugh asked listeners. “If you had to attach, not a philosophy, but an attitude to a leftist world view.

It’s official: Obamaism is dead. Hillary Clinton killed it. It wasn’t so much a mercy killing as an expedient one, but that’s politics in the best sense. The important thing is that she broke the Democratic omertà code by stating the obvious: The president’s policy of having America sit on the sidelines of a burning world is a disaster that threatens our national security. The power of her argument is confirmed by a report that a testy Obama called it “horses–t” to congressional leaders. Even guru David Axelrod blasted her, proving she scored a direct hit on the Chicago mafia’s central nervous

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

Hillary Clinton and congressmen alike have called on Obama to arm Syria’s rebels. But the president fumed at lawmakers in a private meeting for suggesting he should’ve done more. President Obama got angry at lawmakers who suggested in a private meeting that he should have armed the Syrian rebels, calling the criticism “horseshit.” The argument that America should have done more in Syria, made for years by foreign policy leaders in both parties and several members of Obama’s senior national security team, was brought back to the fore this past weekend. Obama and Hillary Clinton gave dueling interviews in which they publicly

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016.

No memos are needed today. ISIS is communicating directly to President Obama via the Internet and social media.

Going by the numbers, Apple fits into a stereotype of many tech companies in Silicon Valley: its workforce is overwhelmingly white and male. Overall, 70 percent of Apple employees are men as opposed to 30 percent women, and 55 percent are white, according to statistics provided by Apple. In addition, 15 percent of its overall workforce is Asian, 11 percent is Hispanic, and 7 percent is Black. (Snip) In the letter, Cook added that Apple´s definition of diversity extends beyond race, gender, and ethnicity to include such categories as "sexual orientation, veteran status, and disabilities."

Just two weeks after the Obama administration asked Congress to repeal the Iraq war authorization, the White House is failing to adequately explain to lawmakers the legal justification and concrete objectives for its airstrikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), according to congressional insiders apprised of off-the-record briefings on the matter.Questions are now being raised on Capitol Hill about how the White House intends to legally justify its military campaign, particularly in light of its efforts to repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force in Iraq (AUMF).

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen. America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed
