#4. If you look closely at the guest list you will notice that Robert DeNero was accompanying a woman who is apparently his spouse, and who is apparently also a black woman, that´s why he was there.

What "commerce" on the African continent is there to possibly do business with this country?

By the way, how long will it be before we have to start referring to Obama as "His Excellency" like all of the other African leaders?

If these leaders are all so excellent, why is Africa in shambles and begging for money? It´s one of the few continents left where the failures are not Obama´s fault - that we know of.

7, et al., it amazes me that the media, especially the financial media, have not caught on to what is going on here.

Obama is feathering his post-presidential nest.

This is all about Him (of course) making TONS of money via US investment in Africa. This is about Obama networking FBO Obama. With a raft of tin-pot dictators and Muslim anarchists at his disposal, the sky is going to be the limit.

Holder expects criminal charges
against individuals on Wall Street
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department expects to bring criminal charges in the coming months in investigations involving financial institutions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he called for better incentives for Wall Street whistleblowers who report crime. Holder did not describe the investigations in a speech at New York University’s law school except to say that they’re “focused on the conduct of individuals” and involve wrongdoing that has undermined the financial markets. He used the address to urge Congress to raise a cap on the amount of money that a whistleblower can receive for reporting misconduct. Such cooperation is essential since

The Australian Federal Police and Australian Security and Intelligence Office conducted several anti-terrorism raids in Sydney and Brisbane. According to reports, about 600 officers with armoured vehicles arrested several people in separate pre-dawn raids in NSW and Brisbane. The recent raids are said to be the largest in Australian history following the report of senior officers who revealed a planned terrorist attack was imminent. Intelligence reports said a suspected terrorist cell is planning a kidnapping and beheading. The act of murder will be recorded and posted on social media for the public to see. Reports also suggested that the terrorist group

A Milwaukee teen charged in a string of armed robberies last week told police he was trying to do as many crimes as he could before he turned 18 on Sept. 11. Rocarldo Chalmers is one of five suspects charged Wednesday in a dizzying spree of armed stick-ups and car jackings that only ended after a high speed chase. Chalmers faces 10 felonies, including armed robbery, car theft and fleeing. Isiah Deshawn Thomas, 18, is charged with five counts, Anthony Griffis, 17, with two. Two juveniles were also arrested and as many as three other suspects remain at large. According to the complaint: Things

‘We need people to run against Hillary’

Ready for Hillary? Not so fast. Zephyr Teachout, fresh off her strong second-place showing in the Democratic primary against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, pleaded for more Democratic candidates to challenge the presumed 2016 frontrunner. “Please, we need people to run against Hillary Clinton because if she’s not debating anyone on education policy or on tax policy then we all lose,” she told MSNBC’s Krystal Ball on Wednesday. “Not only does she need a challenger from the left, we should have 5 people—10 people—running for president,” she argued. “If we don’t have a Democratic Party challenger, that is a democratic tragedy.”

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Homeland Security Committee and House Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of the Border and Maritime Subcommittee.(snip) The Congresswoman released the following statement: “The bloodshed at the hands of ISIL has been enormous. Religious minorities have been persecuted. American and British citizens have been beheaded. There is a further threat of other innocent human beings to be beheaded or killed in some way. It is also clear that a war including the United States is not the answer. I abhor the violence of war when diplomacy can be used.

First Lady Michelle Obama is proving herself a very dear friend to the fashion world. Obama, a master of both high and low sartorial styles, will be hosting a Fashion Education Workshop at the White House next month. According to an email obtained by Women´s Wear Daily, celebrated designers like Prabal Gurung, Reed Krakoff, Maria Cornejo, and Bibhu Mohapatra have been invited to attend "to bring members of the fashion industry to the White House and enlighten, educate and mentor the next generation of fashion leaders." In addition, college students from around the Washington area will attend the Oct. 8 educational workshop, which

Executive: Obamacare Is Shifting
Workers Into Part-Time Jobs
Forbes Magazine, by Andrew Puzder    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 9/17/2014 5:12:52 PM     Post Reply
Given the massive effort behind convincing us that Obamacare is a resounding success, it’s almost surprising that a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll found support languishing at 34%. Part of the problem is the credibility Obamacare supporters lose by attempting to prove two questionable propositions. First, that Obamacare is having a positive impact on our health care system and, second, that it’s doing so without any negative impact on our economy. For example, a recent report by the Urban Institute and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, both Obamacare supporters, found “little evidence” that Obamacare’s employer mandate is affecting part time employment.

Ten questions for Al Gore

Yesterday, former Vice President Al Gore presented his fourth annual ‘24 Hours of Reality.’ Broadcast to millions of people, the event is “dedicated to sparking action on climate change.” As with most Gore productions, only carefully pre-screened questions are allowed from journalists. Considering what’s at stake—billions of dollars, millions of jobs, and, if Gore is right, the fate of the global environment—that is not good enough. Reporters must be encouraged to ask any questions they like. Several leading climate experts were asked what question they would most like media to ask Gore in a public forum. Here are 10 of their responses: William

SEOUL -- A young American man has been caught trying to swim across a river border into North Korea, a government source said Wednesday. The man was arrested by Marine sentries at around 11:55 p.m. on Tuesday while he was swimming across the Han River, which borders with North Korea, the source said. (snip) During an interrogation following the arrest, the U.S. citizen of Arabic descent said "I was trying to go to North Korea in order to meet with supreme leader Kim Jong-un," according to the source.

The injustice of Eric Holder

Even we were shocked when we researched our new book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” at the extent to which Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has politicized the Justice Department and put the interests of left-wing ideology and his political party ahead of the fair and impartial administration of justice. However, there is no doubt that the American public has also recognized just how politically corrupt Mr. Holder is, given this month’s very embarrassing poll conducted by Hart Research for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. The poll asked respondents their opinions about 10 different national political officials, ranging

A handful of protesters crashed a speech Hillary Clinton delivered at a labor union’s headquarters in Manhattan tonight, attacking the former first lady for supporting the president’s decision to delay an executive action on immigration reform. “Undocumented, unafraid! Undocumented, unafraid!” the protesters, a group of several women and children, cried as Ms. Clinton was finishing a speech in support of the reauthorization of the Zadroga Act, a law that granted medical compensation and health care to survivors of the September 11 attacks. “Hillary Clinton hasn’t come out in support of our families,” said Mateo Taveras, a 19 year-old native of Colombia living

   

 



 
Minnesota´s Top ObamaCare

Minnesota´s ObamaCare exchange stands apart from every other state — and not only because its No. 1 insurer just threw in the towel. Tuesday´s stunning news that PreferredOne, which enrolled 59% of the state´s exchange members, won´t offer subsidized ObamaCare policies in 2015 is likely related to another unique feature of the exchange that has stunted its growth potential. In 2015, well more than half of MNsure exchange subsidies won´t go to insurers on the exchange, but to a public program serving households that fall between the cut-off for Medicaid and 200% of the poverty level. To date, this MinnesotaCare program for households

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

The 66-year-old, who was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, is now known by his original stage name and Yusuf. He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar

On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident.
