    Was he just a prop to be exploited for photo-ops by an uncaring politician owner? Sure looks that way – the “great animal lover” Obama didn’t take Bo with him to Palm Springs, and now the Obamas have jetted off to the Caribbean for x weeks, with not the slightest hint that Obama misses Bo, or even remembers him. There’s not even any suggestion that Bo will move to Chicago with them. Poor dog – Bo is a nice animal, and deserves an owner who actually cares – not just to be kicked to the curb as soon as his...

    Bo Xilai is down, but not out yet Thursday, May 31, 2012 By David Kan Ting, Special to The China Post The oft-quoted Chinese saying, “people's eyes are snow-brilliant,” (人民的眼睛是雪亮的) has a ring of truth, after all. The adage, attributable to Chairman Mao Zedong, asserts that the eyes of people are piercing and sharp, able to see the difference between right and wrong, and to penetrate the smoke and mirrors of the reactionaries and counterrevolutionaries. The chairman seems to have got it right again this time as mainland China is rocked by scandal after scandal. Time magazine called the country...

    Fearful Final Hours for Briton in China The day before his death in the fog-shrouded Chinese city of Chongqing, Neil Heywood sensed that something was amiss. The British businessman had been summoned on short notice to a meeting in Chongqing in early November with representatives of the family of Bo Xilai, the local Communist Party chief, according to an account by a friend whom Mr. Heywood contacted at the time. Mr. Heywood told the friend he was "in trouble." After he flew to Chongqing, he tried to telephone his usual contacts but couldn't get through to any of them, according...

    President Obama brought along a second, smaller Air Force One for his family to enjoy a day of sightseeing in Argentina on Thursday. After dancing the tango at a state dinner in Buenos Aires Wednesday night, the president and first lady Michelle Obama took their daughters aboard the government plane colloquially known as “baby” Air Force One Thursday to fly to the scenic town of Bariloche in southern Argentina. It’s a Boeing 757 used when traveling to places where the runway is too short for the primary Air Force One. The larger Air Force One, a 747-200, was parked alongside...

    WASHINGTON — Officials in Washington say they've arrested a North Dakota man who allegedly traveled to the nation's capital to kidnap a dog belonging to President Barack Obama. D.C. Superior Court documents say Secret Service agents interviewed Scott D. Stockert of Dickinson, North Dakota, at a Washington hotel after receiving information that he was on his way to the capital to kidnap a 'pet' owned by the first family. A court document says that Secret Service agents interviewed Stockert on Wednesday after they received information from a Secret Service office in Minnesota that Stockert 'was on his way to Washington,...

    Find Them Before They Spoil the Bunch As a business owner and/or manager, you work hard and spend a considerable amount of time and money on hiring the right people. Prior experience, references and whether or not the person will fit into your company's culture are all things that must be carefully examined. If you're thorough and do your homework, chances are the person will likely work out. But what happens six months, a year, or 5 years down the road when things take a turn for the worse? Employees—especially those on the fast track—work hard to stand out and...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Last night I must admit, and I sometimes worry about this, but I don't watch cable news much anymore. There are a lot of reasons for it. I remember I used to be habitually -- well, not addicted, but I made appointments every Sunday to watch the Sunday morning shows. And after a while I stopped, I lost interest. And the reason I lost interest is I stopped learning things. It didn't matter who the guests were, what they were going to say was predictable. So there was no anticipation for what might be said, what might...

    CNN) -- "Do you want to hit this?" a man asked President Barack Obama in a bar in Denver Tuesday night. The president laughed but didn't indulge. It wasn't the only time Obama was offered weed on his night out. That's apparently what happens in Colorado, which recently legalized recreational marijuana. The man posted the exchange on Instagram for the world to see. Obama has admitted to smoking pot as a young man. He was an active member of the "Choom Gang" in high school, which perfected all sorts of techniques for getting high.

    And also he's pretty sure they got a bigger piece of cake. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnxgfQXq5Aw Barack Obama in a speech on Friday took an innovative step forward in policy discussion and blamed someone else for all of his troubles. Speaking on addressing the concerns of voters, the President claimed the administration would have gotten  away with it, if it weren't for those damn Republicans. "The only holdout standing in he way of change for tens of millions of Americans are some Republicans in congress," Obama told an enthusiastic Minneapolis crowd.  "I just want to be real blunt.

    Obama is beside the point. They don’t even like Obama anymore. Nothing could be more obvious. Almost nobody does. But they won’t say so in public because that would mean that they would be revealed as fools who believed the most banal tripe imaginable. It would also mean admitting Barack Obama never really existed, that they invented him. He was their projection. Barack Obama is the creation of the New York Times, et al. Without them he would never have happened and they know it. So the media are left in an untenable position. If you say Barack Obama is...

    As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama promised to bring us together and, on foreign policy, he may be making belated progress. Last week, he gave the commencement address at West Point, turning an occasion to congratulate the cadets for their hard work and thank them for their future service into an opportunity to congratulate and thank himself. The news here is not that his remarks brought criticism from his usual critics, but that this time even many knee-jerk cheerleaders could not get their joints jumping. The first sentence of the lead news story on Page One of The New York...

    Senator John McCain, the most booked Sunday talk show guest of all time originally supported the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap in February, but now he's suddenly leading the charge against it. Senator John McCain, the most booked Sunday talk show guest has a big problem when it comes to the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap that President Obama signed off on. Originally he was all for the trade of prisoners back in February, but if you listen to him now, it's like that never ever happened. Scarce properly called him out over it by saying: The craven politics of...

    You Don’t Want to Miss This Leaked Video of the President Working Out There's also a video of him working out. President Barack Obama has answered the age-old question: “Do you even lift, bro?” Obama’s 30-minute workout routine was caught on camera in the gym of the Polish hotel the president is occupying during his visit to Eastern Europe. Officials are apparently unsure how the pictures and video were taken. Local photographer Marek Kwiatkowski told the Daily Mail: “I know the gym, it isn’t possible to snap these shots from outside, they must have had someone on the inside or...

    Obama’s “philosophical” speech to the 2014 graduates of West Point about a new direction for America’s foreign policy was “not a great” speech for that audience, said CNN anchor Jim Clancy on Wednesday. He said that the president did not sound like a “commander-in-chief speaking to his troops” and got an “icy reception” as a result...

    For most of my life, if I’ve thought at all about the bacteria living on my skin, it has been while trying to scrub them away. But recently I spent four weeks rubbing them in. I was Subject 26 in testing a living bacterial skin tonic, developed by AOBiome, a biotech start-up in Cambridge, Mass. The tonic looks, feels and tastes like water, but each spray bottle of AO+ Refreshing Cosmetic Mist contains billions of cultivated Nitrosomonas eutropha, an ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) that is most commonly found in dirt and untreated water. AOBiome scientists hypothesize that it once lived happily...

    Armed Forces Day was created under Harry Truman in 1949; it was meant to be a day to honor and acknowledge the people of the Armed Forces of the United States. But our President failed to recognize it in his Twitter account, although the account recognized ‘International Day Against Homophobia Or Transphobia’, even using the #IDAHOT hashtag.
