Happy Sweet 16, Malia Obama! A look
back at the First Daughter´s year as
she celebrates her milestone birthday

Daily Mail [UK], by Margot Peppers

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/4/2014 1:16:36 PM

As the rest of America rings in Independence Day, the Obama family have yet another reason to celebrate: Malia Obama´s sweet 16th birthday. The First Daughter, who has recently been in California doing a TV production internship, was just ten years old when her father was first elected President of the United States. And over the past six years, the country has witnessed her grow up into a tall, stylish and mature teen, giving her parents plenty of reasons to be proud. The Obamas will be ringing in the holiday tonight with a Pitbull concert on the South Lawn of the White

Comments:
Surprisingly, there are actually a few photos where she managed to smile. I find it creepy that Obama holds hands with his older daughter. I never remember doing that with my Dad. He would put his arm around my shoulders but we sure didn´t walk about holding hands!

Is it my imagination or are there just as many sullen faced pictures as smiling ones of those kids?

I would not be so quick to appreciate this article about Malia´s 16th birthday because I know she will probably turn out just like her parents.

For me, a cute kitten far out strips the awwwww factor of the First Family´s children.

I wish her a happy birthday too. I agree with #7 it has to be difficult to grow up with the scrutiny you receive as a Presidents child. Whatever you think of her parents political views they do seem to love their daughters. I just hope they don´t grow up to be jerks like mom and dad.

It´s not creepy for a father to hold his daughters hand. I see it a lot. It´s a sign of affection nothing more. I´d rather see a father hold his daughters hand than have her walk behind him.

By far the number of photos where she is happy, smiling´ or laughing are all the candid photos where she is enjoying herself. The unsmiling ones, and I´ve noticed this throughout the years are the ceremonial ones, walking off AF1, etc where you know there are a hoard of photographers snapping away. These situations would be hard for any kid or teenager because they are more or less being asked to ´perform´ and are not really doing anything. All the candid shots I see of both girls they look very normal for teenagers and seem to have a great relationship with their parents. Anyone can be caught in a picture taken where they are not smiling.

Yes, "odd." I think this is a manufactured family and that Michelle is simply a Beard. Or perhaps she is a tranny, as someone said. I thought children had to be 16 to work. So wasn´t Malia working for pay as an intern at 15 years old?

I couldn´t care less about Malia or Sasha. They will be just like Chelsea Clinton - given undeserved red-carpet treatment wherever they go. Given high-paying "jobs" just because of their last name, and forever treated as celebrities. They should go live with those poor kids in the DHS shelters for a few days and see what real challenges are, and to see what their father has wrought.

And did this article say Pit Bull was performing on the WH lawn? That guy is very crude and rude, hardly a role model.

Reply 19, false dichotomy. For it´s doubtful Jenna Bush is paid $600 thousand a year for doing nothing. If her salary was obscene, a lib would have leaked the amount as cover for the bad publicity clintons received over chelsea´s fake job at nbc. What´s more, Jenna has exponentially more talant and charm than chelsea.

Certainly Jenna is more charming and has a lot more on-air talent than Chelsea ever will. I think Jenna is adorable. But the point is she nor Chelsea would have never gotten their foot in the door for an interview much less a job on a national network show with zero experience if their name was not Bush or Clinton. Doesn´t matter what their pay is, they wouldn´t have been considered until they had a good resume of on-air tv work.

We don´t want to know what she was given for her birthday.

Has anyone ever seen these girls in the same outfit or shoes twice ?

She should spend the summer learning to drive at Camp David.

Legalized, Not Prosecuted: Illegal

SSI-Collecting Baby Son

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

When asked whether legalizing illegal immigrants would help unemployed Americans, Rep.

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. In the course of an interview with newly-appointed U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, Inskeep does not even try to hide his bias: he

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

The reported downing of a Malaysian airliner over eastern Ukraine that resulted in the deaths of 295 passengers was an “act of terror” and an “act of war,” according to the top Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs and Senate Armed Services Committee. “The shooting down, if it’s true, of a passenger airliner is an act of terror,” New York Rep.

This is ´La Bestia´ - or ´The Beast´ - which is perhaps the most treacherous train in the world. 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.

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

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.

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

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
