President Obama Arrives For
Martha’s Vineyard Vacation
And Heads Out To Golf

Associated Press/CBS, by Julie Pace

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/9/2014 7:25:37 PM

CHILMARK– President Barack Obama wasted no time heading to the golf links after arriving on Martha’s Vineyard Saturday afternoon for a two-week summer vacation just as the U.S. is engaged in airstrikes against Islamic militant targets in Iraq. Marine One touched down on Martha’s Vineyard at 12:41 p.m. President Obama, Michelle Obama and their daughter Malia headed to the motorcade, which soon departed. Obama’s other daughter, Sasha, will be joining the family later. The motorcade made a 20-minute drive to the vacation home in Chilmark where the Obama family will be staying. The house sits at the end of a

Personally, I wish Øvomit would just stay on vacation until his reign of terror ends in January of 2017.

As long as he is on vacation and playing golf, he isn´t actively working on destroying this nation any worse than he already has...

He is an embarrassment to the world. I bet the pilots flying those F-18s would love to play a round of golf and say to heck with it, just as Obama does. I´m tired of the pundits saying that he needs a vacation when all he does is party, fund raise and play golf! Oh yes, he´s good at speechifying lies.

If Obama keeps up this pace of playing golf, by the time he leaves office he could have played a whole year of golf. Think he´s got a shot at the PGA?

Farm Neck Golf Club is a public course with fees of $160/18-hole round. I bet they have to kick-out everyone else when he shows up. Does anyone know if he pays greens fees, or does he stiff them?

And just why can´t second daughter Sacajawea travel with the rest of the family? How much is her separate travel going to cost the oppressed taxpayers of our beloved homeland?

Traversing the country in the back seat of a station wagon on summer vacations, I and my three siblings always went with our parents. There was no other way. Quintessentially American.

Of course the 0bamas are anything but quintessentially American. Precisely why we don´t like them.

Once again the Pravda Press lies to the American people. It has been scheduled as 3 full weeks of vacation. Watch them twist in the wind explaining how 3 long and very full (of golf) weeks is not really 3 weeks.

The pressitudes are so dumb they believe the American people cannot count days/weeks or figure out that they are being lied too again.

He inspires us with his silver, Cicero tongue to share and redistribute what is not really ours, but His.

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty.

President Obama has taken time out of his busy schedule to share with the nation a new PSA to combat sexual assault on college campuses. Obama announced the campaign during a press conference on Friday, where he cited the NFL football stars who have recently made headlines for domestic violence and child abuse. "From sports leagues to pop culture to politics, our society does not sufficiently value women. We still don´t condemn sexual assault quite like we should," he said during the conference. Vice President Joe Biden, Kerry Washington, and Jon Hamm also lent their voice. "We´ve been working on

Sophia Loren´s beauty and talent is exceeded only by her wit and wisdom – and after an 80-year journey from rags to riches, the Italian screen legend has seen it all. Born on Sept. 20, 1934, to an unwed mother from a poor family in pre-war Italy, her early life was a far cry from the movie diva she was destined to become. After barely surviving the devastation that befell her town during WWII (she still bares a scar on her chin from the bombings), Sophia tapped her real-life experiences to play a young widow struggling to save her child in

A teen was shot to death and at least 14 other people, including a 12-year-old boy, were wounded in shootings between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. The most recent shooting was a homicide that happened about 4:10 a.m. Saturday in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, and the boy killed was the seventh person shot in that area in the West Garfield Park and Lawndale neighborhoods on the West Side. The 16-year-old boy was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital. Police had a difficult time finding the boy because the 911 caller gave a location of Jackson Boulevard and Pulaski Road

In an exclusive interview, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Thursday will go do as a "dark day" in Senate history, with Senate Democrats blocking GOP legislation addressing the Islamic State (ISIS) and President Obama´s threat of executive amnesty. “Unfortunately the Senate Democrats have become an extreme party,” Cruz said in an interview backstage at the Liberty Political Action Conference (LPAC) in Alexandria, Virginia. “They have become a party that has abdicated their responsibilities. Under Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats, we have a do-nothing Senate. There are over 350 bills the House of Representatives has passed and they’re all sitting

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s

Oh, to be a fly on the wall backstage. Debbie Wasserman Schultz had an awkward task at the Democratic National Committee´s Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday. She had to have back-to-back-to-back public encounters with the leaders of her party, who gathered there a day after a scathing and deeply reported story suggested that Democrats are all but done with her as chairman. One by one, she introduced Vice President Biden, Hillary Clinton and President Obama. And it was essentially air-kisses all around. But the subtext was hard to miss, even as they praised her as the something amounting to the best

IRBIL -In the part of his Sept. 10 speech on confronting the Islamic State that probably drew the least attention, President Obama mentioned the need to help Christians and other minorities, expelled from cities and villages in northern Iraq, return from where they came. “We cannot allow these communities to be driven from their ancient homeland,” he said. Obama got that wrong. Christians, of whom around 120,000 have taken refuge in Iraqi Kurdistan, will not be going home even if their tormentors suddenly disappear. I spent 10 days talking with Christian refugees in Irbil, the capital of the northern autonomous region

Billionaire investor and entrepreneur Mark Cuban is generous with his advice. He´s talked about the keys to the perfect pitch, what it´s like to become a billionaire (while naked), and the cookies he just can´t stop eating. He has also shared some important personal-finance advice. When we asked him what he wishes he´d known about money in his 20s, he said: That credit cards are the worst investment that you can make. That the money I save on interest by not having debt is better than any return I could possibly get by investing that money in the stock market.

These days, Democrats aren’t talking

When President Obama took office in 2009, congressional Democrats were euphoric. With control of the House, Senate and the White House, and high public approval for their new party standard bearer, Democrats eagerly embraced Obama and all the long-awaited policy initiatives he’d surely help them achieve. In that first month, congressional Democrats mentioned Obama during floor speeches 200 or so more times than Republicans. In the next year and a half, the parties referred to the president at similar rates, sometimes with the Republicans having more to say, other times the Democrats. One can reasonably assume that when the Democrats

As John Sexton related on Friday, the Justice Department hasn´t been able to find anything liking New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to the "Bridgegate" scandal (and you know Eric Holder´s people were very, very keen to find such a linkage.) It remains to be seen how the bridge affair will affect Christie´s political future, which may or may not include a run at the White House. Some think his vindication after such intense media coverage will make the story a net plus for him, at least among swing voters.

Military gets ´sensitive´ under Obama

The military is growing more “sensitive” under the Obama administration, Pentagon observers say, by relaxing long-standing restrictions on soldiers’ religious and personal liberties. The efforts by the Defense Department to adapt to cultural change go beyond the moves to end the controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and allow women in combat. In recent weeks, the Pentagon has backed off controversial hairstyle regulations that critics said discriminated against black women and made the phrase “so help me god” optional in the oath for airmen. Earlier this year, the military loosened its rules for soldiers who want to wear turbans or

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.
