The Democratic National Committee is holding a contest to win a trip to meet President Obama during his fundraising swing through Los Angeles on July 23, when he will attend a fundraiser at the home of “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes. An e-mail announcing the sweepstakes went out on Tuesday afternoon, with the entrants eligible also for airfare and hotel accommodations and a trip to a reception, the details of which were unspecified. Earlier in the day, the website Charitybuzz.com removed an auction from its site in which a winner could bid in an auction to win two tickets to the

I think I´ll throw my name in, hoping to win. If I do, and the TOTUS lets anyone else talk, I can tell him what approximately half of the American public thinks of him. His protective bubble needs a little bursting, and I´m obnoxious enough to do it. All Lucianne.com readers ought to enter for the same reason - it would help our odds.

By the way, Lucianne.com seems really slow right now.

Uh, no thanks. In fact, I would travel out of my way to NOT meet the kenyan fraud. If I ever got within handshaking range, I would not accept responsibility for my actions.

Follow-up to my post at #2:

Despite what the linked article says, the my.democrats.org site requires a non-zero donation to enter the "Sweepstakes". Given the "payout" (hah!), I´d rather put real money down on a lottery ticket.

Democrats may bring in more foolish money by announcing that, by paying a fee, people would not have to share a room´s air with the odious Obama.

ATLANTA– Dressed in a black shirt with the logo of his racing team, Tony Stewart stepped to the podium on Friday afternoon with the same emotion that he’s felt the past few weeks. During a four-minute statement Friday afternoon at the Atlanta Motor Speedway–his first public comment since he hit and killed driver Kevin Ward Jr. at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Aug. 9–Stewart expressed remorse over the death of the young driver and how difficult it has been for him to deal with it. “This is been one of the toughest tragedies I’ve ever had to deal with, both

The Secret Service is investigating a possible threat made against President Obama. Authorities tell NBC News that there was a “potentially suspicious person and vehicle” near where Obama made fundraising stops tonight. Connecticut police have been informed of the report by the Secret Service, as well as being advised to be on lookout for this suspicious person. State law enforcement is currently looking for the car this person was driving, which they believe to be a blue Jetta with Connecticut plates. Obama attended one fundraiser in Connecticut tonight before heading to another one in Rhode Island

JEFFERSON CITY • Gov. Jay Nixon is asking the U.S. Small Business Administration to provide low-interest loans to businesses affected by the recent events in Ferguson. “Businesses impacted by recent events in the Ferguson area are in need of assistance to help them recover,” Nixon said. "This is part of our ongoing and long-term commitment to help Ferguson and surrounding communities move forward.” Small businesses and some nonprofit organizations could be eligible to receive these economic injury disaster loans, which offer capital to businesses until normal operations resume. The governor requested that businesses in St. Louis County as well as

This is…not what embattled "Louisiana" Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu wanted to read in the Washington Post -- which, as it turns out, is her hometown paper: In Washington, Sen. Mary Landrieu lives in a stately, $2.5 million brick manse she and her husband built on Capitol Hill. Here in Louisiana, however, the Democrat does not have a home of her own. She is registered to vote at a large bungalow in New Orleans that her parents have lived in for many decades, according to a Washington Post review of Landrieu’s federal financial disclosures and local property and voting records.

I´m shocked, shocked I tell you, to learn that during the last 6 months, 99% of illegal alien minors who snuck across the border have been released. How can this be? Our president, who never tells a lie, said many times that the illegal kids couldn´t stay, that they would be sent home. Instead, it appears that the president misspoke. Or was misunderstood. Or Republicans have twisted his words. Washington Examiner: The Obama administration has released a huge majority of illegal immigrant children who poured over the U.S.-Mexico border earlier this year into dozens of tony counties without notifying the

Two Democrats running for congress in West Virginia’s first and second districts took a strong stance against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a state Chamber of Commerce Business Summit Friday. Asked who he’d like to see as House speaker, Rep. David McKinley, a Republican incumbent in the state’s 1st District said, “Not Nancy Pelosi,” the Charleston Daily Mail reported. McKinley’s Democratic challenger and state auditor Glen Gainer agreed. “I wouldn’t vote for Nancy Pelosi either,” he said. Democrat Nick Casey, who’s challenging Republican Alex Mooney for Republican Senate candidate Shelley Moore Capito’s open seat in the 2nd District, said

Fattah´s million dollar man

WHO IS "Person D?" That has been the hot question in political and legal circles since a longtime aide to U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah admitted in federal court Wednesday that he lied to investigators to conceal an illegal $1 million loan to Fattah´s 2007 campaign for mayor of Philadelphia. A source familiar with the investigation said yesterday the man who made that loan - identified as "Person D" in federal documents - is believed to be Albert "Al" Lord, the former CEO of Sallie Mae, the giant student loan financing corporation. If true, that draws a remarkable loop in where

A foundation controlled by the son of billionaire investor Warren Buffett has paid $4.5 million for hundreds of artifacts belonging to civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks, a lawyer for Parks´ heirs said on Friday. The artifacts, which include Parks´ Presidential Medal of Freedom and a postcard signed by Martin Luther King Jr., were purchased by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation on Aug. 20, said Detroit-area attorney Lawrence Pepper. Personal papers, notes, letters from presidents, and various awards and honorary doctorates were also among the articles, said Pepper.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest took great lengths to explain why President Obama’s comment about having no strategy to defeat the Islamic State in Syria. “I don´t want to put the cart before the horse,” Obama said during his press conference yesterday. “We don´t have a strategy yet.” Earnest acknowledged that he responded quickly on Twitter to clarify Obama’s “no strategy” statement after the press conference, after it was clear that the media was using his comment as the focal point of their stories. Later Earnest went on CNN to further clarify Obama´s comments. “The reaction was not in

DES MOINES — Ben Carson sees bullies everywhere. Maybe that’s what happens after years of being walloped by stronger kids, and ridiculed by the smarter ones at his inner-city schools in Boston and Detroit. The bullying is central to the stories Carson tells about himself. Onstage here today in Iowa, where all presidential campaigns begin, he starts with a tale about studying hard enough to best his tormentors. “I went from the bottom of the class to the top of the class, much to the consternation of the students who called me ‘dummy,’ ” he says with a grin. “Now

He said continued fighting in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists launched an uprising in April, was the result of a refusal by Kiev to negotiate.

Democrats are more afraid of global warming than the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global climate change is a major threat to the United States, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans. In contrast, 65 percent of Democrats believe that ISIS is a major threat, three points less than climate change. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans cited ISIS as a major threat -+ a partisan difference of 13 points. Eighty percent of Republicans also cite “Islamic extremist groups like al Qaeda” as

President Barack Obama said during a Thursday press conference that his administration doesn´t have a plan worked out yet for defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Syria. [Snip] ´What I´ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we´re at than we currently are,´ Obama cautioned. He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

In a statement from the White House on Thursday, President Obama addressed the world on fire. ISIS terrorists are losing arms and equipment because of U.S. strikes, Obama said, adding that “our focus right now is to protect American personnel on the ground in Iraq.” However, he also cautioned against rushing in. "I don´t want to put the cart before the horse, we don´t have a strategy yet," he said. The Daily Beast reported that the president asked for a war plan for ISIS in Syria by Friday.

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it. And, as usual, it doesn’t look like Washington

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear.

Megyn Kelly was incredibly bewildered Thursday night at President Obama‘s comment about having no concrete Syria strategy yet. Ed Henry was very blunt in telling Kelly that this is an unqualified “disaster” for the White House. Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina. This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion. There is absolutely no excuse for not winning these two races. So how is the one-time “boy genius” doing this? By running ads attacking Senators Mark Pryor and Kay Hagan from the left. Yes, you heard that right. Rove’s Crossroads GPS PAC is insisting in their latest

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

At least four hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State, including an American journalist who was recently executed by the group, were waterboarded in the early part of their captivity, according to people familiar with the treatment of the kidnapped Westerners. James Foley was among the four who were waterboarded several times by Islamic State militants who appeared to model the technique on the CIA’s use of waterboarding to interrogate suspected terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The victims of waterboarding are often strapped down on gurneys or benches while cold water is poured over a cloth covering

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”
