Michelle Obama’s World – We Control
Any Space We Occupy And We Occupy
Any Space We Choose – Deal With It…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/26/2014 7:29:30 PM

The leftist media have inflated the ego of the current regime… It’s how you get a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing noble or prize worthy. Vocativ was on Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend to film a piece about the African-American community on the island. While we were shooting on Beach Road, one of the busiest thoroughfares on the Vineyard, the Secret Service approached and asked us to switch off our camera for 15 minutes. A moment later, first lady Michelle Obama power walked by our crew. She was out for some exercise with a small group—and a serious security

At first glance of that video photo I thought it was Oprah!! They didn´t want the video taken because you saw the REAL Mooch without Spanx, makeup, hair done, false eyelashes, etc.

The all black enclave on MV is a well kept secret.
The Black elite like their Separate but equal enclave when it suits their racist purposes.
It is only the white establishments that need to be integrated- not Black Colleges, Black Churches, Black Social Clubs and Black retreats in MV.
Photographer got the real Michelle in all her hateful fat splendor.
Where has she been?
Cannot believe the Dems want her out their fundraising because of her popularity.
Fools or Crony Capitalists giving back the Loot from the American taxpayer so they can rape the Taxpayer even more.
When is she going on her Listening Tour"?
Need to discredit and discard the Obama Grifters without rehabilitation like the Bushes did with predator and perjurer Billy Jeff.

God´s Word never fails!

Be ready to witness a complete breakdown!

Michelle and Barack are setting a poor example for their daughters as well as harming US. What must they think and how are they able to deal with all that is going on. The future does not look good for them!

She may have acted as though she didn´t want to be photographed, but to go out walking on a main road in the morning says she really wanted some attention. But she had to protest, because that´s how she thumbs her nose at the rest of us. Totally without any class - in other words, very low class.

Michelle does not want the plebes who pay her tab to gaze on her while she´s lumbering on a public thoroughfare.
She sends her agents to harass taxpayers
who dare to gaze.
Have we ever had a First Lady who put her hands over her face, like a criminal entering the courthouse , so she can´t be photographed ,
while she´s out in public ???
Laura and Barbara Bush would have happily waved at those who pay the bills, I dare say even Hillary Clinton would have done the same.
A hint to Mrs Beard.
Don´t go out in public, if you don´t want the public to see you.

The chubby one in purple looks like ValJar. Mooch isn´t in bad shape. I wish she would talk about exercise and not diet. Regular exercise can reduce your risk of dementia by 50%. I guess that´s too much info for the public. I tend to believe you should leave people alone when they work out. Even famous people. I work out every day in a center filled with women. I´m a somewhat strong man. I try to give them as much space as possible. Mooch is a pain, but leave her alone when she´s working out.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

An Iraq war veteran who launched his own aid group to provide medical help for Syrian war refugees has been named as the next potential victim of ISIS. Former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig, 26, who was providing aid to Syrian refugees, has been confirmed as the latest American hostage to be held by Islamic State militants. At the end of a video showing the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning in Syria, which emerged on the internet tonight, Mr Kassig is shown on his knees next to ´Jihadi John´.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was on “Special Report,” where he discussed the Ebola threat, border security and the Secret Service security lapses. "The Secret Service agency merits an independent review right now," Johnson said of the security incidents. Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

HUD Official Pleads Guilty To

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls.
