    Obama camp angry, embarrassed over 2009 Nobel Prize: official The Associated Press Posted: May 15, 2014 5:24 PM ET Last Updated: May 15, 2014 5:24 PM ET A senior Norwegian diplomat says his country's former ambassador to the United States was given a verbal lashing by Barack Obama's chief of staff when the president was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Morten Wetland said Thursday the ambassador, Wegger Stroemmen, was approached by Rahm Emanuel, now Chicago's mayor, who accused Norway of "fawning" to the newly elected U.S. leader. Wetland, the Norwegian ambassador to the United Nations at the time,...

    Obama: I Need New Yorkers to Move West and Vote Democrat by Charlie Spiering 15 May 2014, 7:41 AM PDT President Obama joked during a New York fundraiser that he needed the attendees to move west to increase his support. During his speech, Obama told a story about a woman who asked how she could help him, and he joked that she should move to North Dakota. “If I could just get about a million excess votes in Brooklyn out to Nebraska, Wyoming, we’d be doing okay,” Obama said as the crowd laughed. “I don't need 80 percent of the...

    Immigration Enforcement Isn’t Smart, Obama Says Posted By Neil Munro On 4:44 PM 05/13/2014 Enforcing immigration law “isn’t smart,” President Barack Obama told law enforcement officials Tuesday, just one day after the public learned he had released 36,007 illegal-immigrant murderers, rapists, thieves and other criminals into the nation’s communities. Cops should be going after major criminals, not the many illegal immigrants that are quietly living in their districts, said Obama, who has twice sworn to uphold the nation’s laws. “You’ve got to spend time dealing with somebody who is not causing any other trouble other than the fact that they...

    There is an ever growing outrage throughout America about Barack Obama’s disconnect from Americans and his lack of concern about the well being and will of the American people. In an open letter to Mr.Obama, retired Senior Airman Brian Kolfage (USAF) and triple amputee expresses his disgust with the president. Kolfage writes about his experience in unlawful and illegal wars, Obama’s hypocrisy when it comes to “inequality” and a variety of other subjects that cast Barack Obama in a deservingly negative light.

  • How Often Do You Really Need to Shower?

    Yahoo ^ | 5/6/2014 | Yahoo
    If you don't shower much - but generally keep that information to yourself because of the negative stigma - you're not alone. Following hot on the heels of the no-shampooing hair care revolution, some folks are taking the logical next step: If no or reduced shampooing results in healthier, shinier hair, what about skipping soaping up the body? Unlike the modified hair-washing schedule, which tends to elicit commentary about shampoos and parabens, conditioners and hair-drying time, skipping showers altogether seems to bring up plenty of other opinions on the subject. Many people who do shower every day think that not...

    New York Times columnist David Brooks said Sunday that President Barack Obama has a “manhood problem” in the Middle East. “[L]et’s face it,” he said. “Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely, but a manhood problem in the Middle East. Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad, somebody like Putin?” “I think a lot of the rap is unfair, but certainly in the Middle East, there’s an assumption that he’s not tough,” Brooks added during a roundtable discussion on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Although über-patriot Allen West first made clear to Mark Levin (on his radio show Monday 8/11) that he's loathe to engage in 'small ball' with some of the more petty White House scandals, he nonetheless was asked 'how do you justify' the latest Obama middle-finger-to-America -namely, the shipping of 'Bo' the dog to Martha's Vineyard via two exotic, VERY expensive-to-operate Marine VTOL aircraft... West responded 'You don't' justify it- labeling it 'an outrage'. With Obama -in West's eyes- 'It's not about serving... it's about being served.' He then described today's 'progressive' debt + money-printing-and-spending...

    WASHINGTON — Barack Obama, the U.S. Senate candidate from Chicago who has become the Democratic Party's latest rising star, is drawing enough support from the entertainment industry to put on his own variety show. From comedian Chris Rock to singer Barbra Streisand to musician Herbert Hancock, entertainers have written out checks of $1,000 or $2,000 to help the 42-year-old Illinois state senator win the seat being vacated by retiring GOP Sen. Peter Fitzgerald. Film directors Rob Reiner ("The American President") and Edward Zwick ("The Last Samurai" and "Courage Under Fire") both contributed in the past three months, according to Obama's...

    What do Presidents Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush Jr. all have in common? None of them cut Social Security to reduce the deficit – but President Obama's new budget proposal will do just that. His plan would especially slash benefits for future retirees, and the cuts just keep getting worse year over year. President Obama included these cuts, known as the chained CPI, in his "grand bargain." He released his budget today, and he needs to hear that these cuts are completely unacceptable.

    It has long been observed that you can usually tell what a Democrat is up to, generally, by what they accuse the opposition of specifically doing. This phenomenon is much more clearly manifested in Obama -- so much so, that you might be able to write a predictive activity log for him, simply by seeing what he accuses Republicans of doing. On April 9th, it was reported that Obama accused the Republicans of using 'political stunts' to block gun control. Wait... what? Where did he make this accusation? Near Sandy Hook, Connecticut. What did he do the day before? Used...

    Michelle Obama offered a peek inside the first family's healthy habits on Monday, revealing there's one thing they never talk about at home: weight. The first lady joined a Google+ Hangout for her "Let's Move" initiative to chat about her tips for helping children stay healthy. When asked what advice she would offer to young people struggling with their weight, she said it's an issue the Obamas have talked about at home and advised it's more important to focus on fitness than numbers on a scale. "You know,when I talk to my kids...we were going through some of these similar...

    Recognizing his superior wisdom, President Obama has delegated all tasks that involve governing to First Dog Bo. Peace in our time is finally coming. Down, Barry! I've got work to do.Anyone with two or more family dogs recognizes that, in many ways, they are wiser than humans. When a weak dog encounters a possibly hostile strong dog, he does not fight or even try to run away. Instead, he rolls over on his back to expose his soft underbelly and may wag his tail, universally understood signs of wishful trust and hence of submission. Our new Secretary of Defense (along...

    Unless obstructionists agree to raise taxes on the filthy rich and give President Obama authority to increase the debt ceiling unilaterally, He and his family will have to eat First Dog Bo. Not Bo! Please! Don't make me eat Bo. Not even House Speaker Boehner's tears had persuaded enough Obstructionists to free the middle class. President Obama continued to insist that slightly higher taxes on the filthy rich were mathematically necessary, that without them his hands would be tied even to the point that he might be unable to send more fighter jets to the democratically elected freedom loving Muslim...

    With Big Bird out of the picture, the Obama campaign is relying on a new cuddly creature to win over Americans’ hearts and minds: The First Dog Bo.Late this afternoon the Obama campaign uploaded a “Happy Birthday Bo Obama” video to its YouTube that features Barack and Michelle Obama. Ironically not about the First Dog’s fourth birthday at all and shows almost the same amount of footage of Barack and Michelle talking as it does the First Dog.In the heartwarming video the first couple talks about how the first dog generally only listens to the President because he is intimidated...

    Gu Kailai, the wife of ousted Communist Party official Bo Xilai, was found guilty and given a suspended death sentence on Monday for the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood in the southwestern city of Chongqing last year, according to observers in the courtroom. They said the Intermediate People's Court in the eastern city of Hefei gave Ms. Gu a death sentence with a two-year reprieve—a penalty that had been widely expected and is normally commuted to a life sentence in prison after two years of good behavior. Zhang Xiaojun, a Bo family aide, was also found guilty but given...

    President Obama addressed a crowd of supporters at a campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa on Wednesday. The President, who was introduced to the audience by his wife, Michelle, said that the First Lady was a tough act to follow: "Because let's face it, on the charisma rankings in my household, you got her [Michelle]; the girls; Bo; and then my mother-in-law and then me" [laughter]... The President quickly added, "Actually my mother-in-law-is before Bo..." Question: How is it even possible for Bo to have more charisma than the President? See the video... for the answer...... VIDEO
