Joan Rivers: Obama Is Gay And
Michelle Is A ‘Tranny’ [Video]

Daily Caller, by Kaitlan Collins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/4/2014 11:47:03 AM

The 81-year-old Joan Rivers and her mouth are back at it again. A street reporter found Rivers Thursday, and, in light of her officiating a gay wedding Monday, asked if she predicted the United States would have its woman president or a gay president first. “Well, we already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.” “You know Michelle [Obama] is a tranny,” she added. When asked for clarification she was more politically correct: ”A transgender.” Watch the whole thing here:

Comments:
Oh my. This will sure cause rage and fury with those in the media. Poor Joan, she is starting to resemble that horrific "Cat Lady" who has had too many plastic surgeries. For those who aren´t familiar with the Cat Lady below is a link. Be prepared! It´s a horror show! This is the entire article with video.

Joan Rivers is impossible to look at. She will do anything for attention. I´ve seen her in person (at a banquet) and she scans to see where the press is and always does something outrageous right in front of them. Usually they ignore her, but she´s a machine, she´s never stop trying.

Back in the days of Margaret Thatcher, Joan was doing a regular routine mocking the British royalty suggesting that the discussion was over a pack of dogs - princess, duke, king, etc. As part of a gotcha, someone in the entertainment community arranging for a Thatcher imitator to have a chance encounter with her in an airport.

I can´t wait to see how this one plays out.

..since the typical lib thinks being homosexual/ bi/ trans/sexual predator/pervert is cool and perfectly normal...and they are "proud of their brave family and friends" that are in the above categories... then WHY are they so outraged and angry when someone claims THEY are one of those types??....shouldn´t they say "Thank you for the compliment." ...just wondering....??

I loathe everything the O´s stand for, but how is this cheap shot even remotely funny? This from a Jewish woman who I once heard ´joke´ about her forebears being burned in the concentration camps...to which her sycophants on the ´Fashion Police´ just giggled and said, "Oh, Joan." There were NO repercussions! She´s a vile woman.

Why else would barry choose a wife who is more manly than he is? Why is he always surrounding himself with large male athletes? Why did he spend so much time defending the gay marriage agenda? Something is definitely awry between those elephant ears. When the media decides to dig up the truth about this pixie some day (if they ever do) we will be treated to a bunch of strange facts. He will go down as the biggest farce in the history of Washington.

Joan Rivers is pretty vile most of the time.

But, occasionally, she actually gets it right. This is one of those times -- at least about Øvomit (and his "special friend" Reggie).

But Moo-chelle isn´t a "tranny". She is just another low-class chick who has tagged along with a man to get power and wealth. Once he isn´t president any longer, and no longer has anything to offer her, I´m guessing she will be gone really quickly.

It certainly explains why Obama thinks he´s King if he´s married to a queen. Don´t know and don´t care, but it is a sad state of affairs that this is part of a national speculation. What I can say with certainty: Obama is the worst president in history.

She was a mean-spirited, vile beast yesterday and she is one today and will be one tomorrow. She may have "talent", but this is her m.o. She says mean things, gets paid for criticizing peoples´ looks and clothes while she and that talentless daughter get paid off of it.

Of course, this is deliberately "outrageous" as part of the "shtick" of Joan Rivers. For all that we love to lampoon Moochelle: Malia and Sasha would be miracles of science if Joan´s remark were true. You can tell by the facial resemblances that they were not adopted, either.

In the "old days" before P.C. we would simply establish a mental "filter" and move on.

Joan Rivers is a brilliant one-liner. Too bad though she has to make a living making mean remarks about people even if there is some truth in some of her barbs. She´s a poster child for the mean & greedy Republican (everyone does know she´s a Republican, right?). Of course the tranny thing is absurd.

Anyway, thanks to #13 for the "Google Larry Sinclair." All the talk of Obama being gay has been frustrating to me since I´ve never been able to find much evidence aside from, say, that picture of him sitting awfully chummily with his college roomie. But via googling Larry Sinclair I found the Corsi article in WMD, which I´m thinking is about as convincing as it gets possibly aside from LS´s book. (?)

And color me innocent but I still don´t see why all the comments about Mooch. To me she isn´t particularly butch or even unattractive. Her personality & politics of course are something else entirely.

Obama refused ‘repeated requests’ since
August 2013 for drone strikes against ISIS

Breaking on Capitol Hill is the news that Iraqi officials began requesting almost a year ago for the US to carry out drone strikes against ISIS – but the requests were shot down by the White House. That stunning revelation came during a hearing on the situation in Iraq this morning. The Hill reports: During a hearing on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said the administration knew six months ago that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL) had established armed camps, staging areas and training grounds in Iraq’s western

Legalized, Not Prosecuted: Illegal
Alien Who Stole Identity of Dead
SSI-Collecting Baby Son
Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/18/2014 6:56:40 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. government not only failed to prosecute an illegal alien who stole the identity of his dead baby son—who had collected SSI before he died—but granted the father legal status to work in the United States. This one-time illegal alien, the Office of Inspector General for the Social Security Administration believes, fraudulently used his son’s Social Security Number for at least three years. Yet, he was not prosecuted, according to the IG’s office, because his case did not meet the prosecutorial guidelines of the U.S. attorney for New Jersey. In fact, this case might never have come to light had the IG

HOUSTON, Texas--While the Obama Administration has largely expressed surprise at the sharp increase in illegal immigrants from Central America this year, the Health and Human Services (HHS) budget for processing unaccompanied foreign minors has exploded in recent years, raising questions about whether the administration could have foreseen, or did foresee, the crisis. After being apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, many illegal immigrants are then put into the custody of HHS where they receive a myriad of taxpayer-subsidized benefits including housing, food, vocational training, education, and even legal

Steve Inskeep of National Public Radio´s Morning Edition aired an extraordinary story about U.S. Customs and Border Patrol on Friday. The story was not about the ongoing wave of illegal aliens from Central America--many of them children--crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Rather, it was about the rules on when deadly force may be used by Border Patrol agents in the course of their duties--with a view to making it harder for them to do so.

Tonight on “The Kelly File,” Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt discussed President Barack Obama’s reaction to the Flight MH17 crash, compared to former President Ronald Reagan’s response back in 1983 when Korean Airlines Flight 007 was shot down by Soviet Union fighters. The Korean Airlines flight was shot down en route to South Korea by Soviet Union fighter pilots when it drifted into Soviet airspace, killing 60 Americans, including a congressman. Reagan ended his California vacation and flew back to Washington, D.C. In a speech four days later, Reagan said, “This was the Soviet Union against the world

FALFURRIAS, Texas – Far from the crisis along the border with Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, the checkpoint here exists to deter those who made it this far but want to get away. To an American — let’s say a young white man– the three-lane checkpoint some 70 miles from the border seems far from threatening. A Border Patrol agent asks if you’re a U.S. citizen. Answer correctly, and he lets you through. But for illegal immigrants who want to elude capture, the Falfurrias checkpoint, with drug-sniffing dogs looming, is the likely end of the journey. So the migrants

It is not built to carry passengers, but that doesn´t stop around 1,500 migrants piling on board the freight train´s roof. They are trying to reach the Mexico-U.S. border to start a new life in America. Most are refugees fleeing endemic violence in Central America. But they face a terrifying journey ahead of them. For years Mexico´s notorious drug gangs have been in control of the route, charging $100 (£64) or more for permission to mount the train. Threats, attacks and extortion continue en route

In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.” (snip)wo days earlier, Cooper hosted a CNN special report on the subject, “Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800.” To understand the depth of media-government complicity, it is useful to compare “Witnessed” with two prior videos.

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word
