What it’s like when Michelle
Obama shows up to the restaurant
where you’re dining

Washington Post, by Tom Sietsema

It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bare right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were doing tapas at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “Ma’am, you rock,” I wanted to tell her, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chef Sam Kass, and was

FTA: ´´As soon as I sat down, I spotted the reason for the abundant security. Even with her back to the crowd, the ­FLOTUS’s sleek coif, sleeveless dress (turquoise) and model posture gave away her identity.´´

Actually, it was the hairy back of the Sasquatch that gave her away. BTW Tom, you´re an idiot.

Could Tom be a more deluded writer? When he mentions the First Scold´s "model posture gave away her identity," we can see he´s three sheets to the wind, as the giant Mooch routinely galumphs all over the place when walking, which is not model posture. When seated at a table, I´ve seen countless pictures of her with her elbows on the table leaning forward to stuff her big mouth! It´s embarrassing to see, you immediately feel someone should tell her how terrible the optics are.

The real story:

"It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She can clear out a restaurant faster than anyone. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bear right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. No “bear” is not a typo – I swear that woman has arms larger than a NFL lineman’s thigh.
Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she shaves her back daily as her 5 o’clock back shadow has in full bloom. Clearly Schick or Norelco should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

I wanted to yell at her and possibly get the chance to wing a salt or pepper shaker at her head, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chief ass - Valjar, and was separated by a table occupied by two Secret Service agents. (They passed the time with a spirited game of Russian roulette, pausing only to wail, “please Lord, take me now.”) Not a chance.

A food fan who has eaten around the world, once the First Linebacker showed up, it was slim pickings for anyone not wearing one of those unforgettable hair wigs. She was at Barcelona for what looked like a celebration, seated in the back of the Spanish restaurant’s private room. I believe it was to celebrate the running of the bulls as Mooch ordered two sides of beef. Appetizer? Entrée? When the Mooch eats there is no telling as sparks fly off the silverware and the noise rises to a deafening level. And you best be wearing a raincoat because the Mooch is a sloppy eater.

Part 2

"To be clear, our eyes never met. Throughout dinner, Mobama sat facing the rear wall, and not once during my 90 minutes in the restaurant did she turn around, because with an ass that size, it takes an Act of Congress to get it to change direction. She did fart numerous times in my direction, lifting her cheeks as she did so to get that perfect resonance off the wooden chair she demands when she eats out. Her attention was mostly on the sides of beef. Only when a server dropped something to her right did she turn in the direction of the crashing noise, and made a vicious swipe at that server – presumable to get some human flesh. The dark suits next to me, on the other hand, stopped chewing and fixed their gazes on the situation until they deduced the server was free and clear and they would not have to get the “jaws of life” to pry him from her grasp before it was too late."

CA Candidate Neel Kashkari´s
Homeless Week Makes the Case

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/1/2014 1:52:18 AM     Post Reply
Republican California gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari recently spent a week homeless on the streets of Fresno, CA, and he may have discovered why so many American workers oppose illegal immigration. His struggles to find a job--let alone food and a roof over his head--exemplify why American workers oppose illegal immigration and President Barack Obama´s plans to give millions of illegal immigrants work permits in an economy that has not recovered for them. On Thursday, fierce opposition to Obama´s potential granting of work permits to millions of illegal immigrants caused House GOP leaders to pull their border bill,

WASHINGTON — Immigrant activists and religious leaders massed outside the White House on Thursday to protest against U.S. policies on deporting migrants in the country illegally, and police arrested 112 demonstrators they say blocked traffic. The protesters urged President Barack Obama to immediately halt all deportations. They also called on him to extend relief for migrants by decree and to protect Central American children crossing into the U.S. unaccompanied by adults. Minerva Carcano, a bishop for the United Methodist Church in Los Angeles, said such protests are needed to “raise a moral voice, because you do not hear from

Aw, is someone sad? Rep. Chris Van Hollen slammed House Republicans on Thursday, saying members now have to check with “Speaker Cruz” to get any legislation passed. “It was Senator Cruz calling the shots, and that’s why people around here are calling him ‘Speaker Cruz’ today,” the Maryland Democrat said to MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. “It means when Speaker Boehner says he’s going to get something done from now on, he’d better be checking with Senator Cruz to see if he’s gonna get the votes because clearly the new leadership team isn’t up to the task.” It is perfectly understandable that

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The Republican candidate for California governor said Thursday he spent a week living as a homeless person in Fresno to highlight the disparity between the governor´s claim that the state is making an economic comeback and the reality faced by the working poor. Neel Kashkari, a millionaire and former Goldman Sachs banker who is far behind Gov. Jerry Brown in pre-election polls, released a short documentary about the six nights he spent sleeping in parking lots and on park benches, and wrote about his experience in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal.

When a handful of former NASA employees decided to get serious about retrieving moon photos from 50-year-old analog tapes, they got a lot of negative feedback. "We were told by professionals it would cost millions, but we did it anyway," said Keith Cowing, co-lead on the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project. At the end of March, the project celebrated processing the last of about 1,500 photos made by NASA´s lunar orbiters in the 1960s. The next phase involves preparing them for submission to the Planetary Data System, a public archive. Now housed in a converted McDonald´s restaurant on NASA property

A Vanity Fair spokesperson told Politico that as of now, there’s no set schedule or subject matter Lewinsky is tied to, “but she and her editor are on the lookout for relevant topics of interest.” Vanity Fair published a first-person account by Lewinsky in June, wherein she revisited the sex scandal she’ll be forever associated with.

Not over yet? Border crisis bill

A dramatic scene was unfolding on Capitol Hill on Thursday as House Republican leaders left open the possibility that the chamber could still vote on a border crisis bill -- just moments after punting on the legislation and sending lawmakers home. Earlier in the afternoon, House leaders abandoned the bill after failing to round up enough votes for it. Lawmakers then began heading out for the five-week summer recess. But incoming House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., then unexpectedly took to the floor to say "additional votes are possible," indicating lawmakers should stay. Boos could be heard in the House

Wall Street tumbled deep into the red as traders digested a slew of corporate news and took money off the table with stocks not far from record highs. As of 1:30 p.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 221 points, or 1.3%, to 16660, the S&P 500 tumbled 28.6 points, or 1.5%, to 1942 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 73.4 points, or 1.6%, to 4390.

In the Speaker´s lobby just off the House floor, members of Congress were full of recriminations over how the border bill had just died -- until it sprang back to life. House leadership has announced a 3pm special conference meeting to discuss the issue and raised the possibility of additional votes before the House departs for summer recess. The change is an abrupt shift from a decision to pull the bill and leave without a vote on it at all. According to Republicans familiar with the matter, the decision prompted a sudden and fierce backlash against Speaker John Boehner from

House GOP pulls border bill

House Republicans pulled Speaker John A. Boehner’s slimmed-down legislation to address the brewing immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border rather than see it defeated, amid a conservative revolt that the $659 million proposal did not address the core issues. Faced with certain defeat, Boehner (R-Ohio) pulled the legislation from consideration Thursday afternoon, according to guidance from leadership advisers. With more than 20 House conservatives opposed, Boehner did not have enough votes from his own Republican ranks because virtually all Democrats opposed the legislation. The resulting lack of action would end the congressional summer session in a familiar legislative failure, as

A good friend of mine apologized to me today.

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech today, telling a young audience that the ´blood of Africa´ runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed.

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done. Then you can get

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been traveling to New York in the past month to quietly meet with high-flying business leaders to ramp up interest in a potential presidential bid, sources tell Page Six. “He’s been meeting with groups of up to 15 people at private homes to tell them about some of his moderate points of view,” a source said. “He’s been meeting with Republicans, Democrats and independents.” Our source added, “They’re not fund-raisers. It’s for people here to get to know more about him. He’s said he has not decided whether he’ll run.” We hear that Bush was in town

Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera sniped at conservative blogger Matt Drudge over his website The Drudge Report’s emphasis on news regarding the U.S.-Mexico border. “Shame on Drudge,” Geraldo tweeted Wednesday. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’” Drudge has admittedly placed an emphasis on linking to stories concerning the border. “I’m more obsessed with what’s going on with the border these days,” he said in a recent interview. The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.

Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W. Bush, unleashed on Republicans and conservatives Tuesday who he says “helped” Democrats and the White House by calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has denied that he would seek impeachment. GOP House Majority Leader

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee. Perciasepe plans to leave the EPA next month, but before he takes off he has been making the rounds in Congress, offering to

Many young people, especially the anti-social, dislike classical music so much that it can be played to discourage them from intimidating, harassing and robbing. This experiment has been successful over many years in countless locations. The earliest occurrence was in the mid-1980s, when Canadian outlets of 7-Eleven played easy listening and classical music to disperse teenagers loitering outside. After that, companies from McDonald's to Co-op, transport authorities, housing estates and shopping malls around the world have employed this method. In the UK, the first to do so was the Tyne-and-Wear Metro system in 1997, following Montreal’s underground system in Canada.
