    In an upcoming People magazine interview, Barack and Michelle Obama sit down and discuss life as the First Oppressed Couple of the United States. Hoping to shed light and relate to recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City, Barack reached into the upstairs White House bedroom of his mind and called upon his famous imaginary son to make an appearance: The small irritations or indignities that we experience are nothing compared to what a previous generation experienced,” President Obama said. “It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It’s another thing for...

    MICHELLE OBAMA ONCE GOT ASKED FOR HELP AT TARGET, THINKS IT WAS PROBABLY RACIST By Emily Zanotti 12.17.14 Look. I honestly believe that yes, there are lingering vestiges of racism in our society. You don't exorcise something that pervasive in modern culture in less than a century. Occasionally - not regularly, but occasionally - we've all been known to make varying assumptions about other people based on existing stereotypes. I have no doubt that, in their lifetimes, the Obamas have experienced lots of instances of discrimination based on skin color, and I think that's a tragedy. However, I do not...

Bisola and Akinola, blessed with three children, had been married for 17 years, living with each otherÂ’s excesses as most couples do. Then one day, Bisola stumbled on three travel documents, all bearing AkinolaÂ’s names. They belonged to a strange woman, a child and Akinola. A confrontation resulted in a heated argument between them and Akinola walked out of their home. His wife was free to take whatever decision she thought best for...

    Jeb Bush may be top dog in the latest 2016 polls, but he’s woefully behind the rest of the GOP field when it comes to friends, likes and retweets. The former Florida governor took to social media Tuesday to announce that he will “actively explore the possibility of running” for president in 2016, tweeting a link to a statement on his Facebook page. Journalists and political junkies leapt at the news, but Facebook fans … not so much. As of early Tuesday afternoon, hours after Bush’s 10 a.m. announcement, his tweet had amassed 5,700 retweets and 2,200 favorites. On Facebook,...

    Among those who saw Barack Hussein Obama as an “apostate” for denying his religion as an Islamist, when he first ran as president in 2008, was the man who was to become the terrorist who killed two innocent hostages, injuring four others at the Sydney Lindt Cafe on Sunday. Signing his name as “Sheik Haron” and writing “Dear Brother Barack Obama” in the salutation of his letter, Man Haron Monis warned Obama on June 12, 2008:”You will be apostate by denying your religion, I advise you to avoid such a big sin.”

    It is time to stop thinking of John Boehner and the rest of the Republican congressional leadership as being cowardly and recognize them for what they are: part of The Ruling Class that believes it has the right to tell the rest of us how to live. Since conservative voters handed a majority in the House of Representatives to the Republican Party in 2010, there have been countless missteps and opportunities to stop Democrats. It began with that first lame duck session when Republicans gave Obama some victories that eventually boosted his popularity and washed away the memory of the...

I guess black people want to make sure white people keep their white privilege in check. Or something like that. Not sure.

Middle America came out of the Great Recession in a precarious position, sinking into "dissavings" -- when spending is greater than income -- thanks to a nasty combination of stagnant wages and a hit to real estate and investment values, according to a new working paper from New York University economics professor Edward N. Wolff. That's led to a grim outcome, with virtually no change in the country's median wealth between...

According to a new report the Treasury Department has ordered over $200,000 Survival Kits for as many as 3,814 employees who oversee the federal banking system. It’s not clear why the federal government has ordered the kits, but perhaps they are expecting some sort of disturbance to take place and they want their employees to be prepared for it. According to Zero Hedge, the kits will be delivered to every major bank in the United...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says fellow Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) recent comments on ObamaCare are "beyond comprehension." Schumer caused a stir last month when he said Democrats “blew the opportunity the American people gave them” in 2008 by focusing on healthcare out of the gate instead of on measures to boost the middle class. In an interview with The Washington Post published Monday, Pelosi noted that Schumer wrote the 1994 assault weapons ban that was blamed for Democratic losses that year. She hit Senate Democrats for distancing themselves from President Obama in the midterm elections, and the...

But the group behind the clip appears to be completely sincere. The Washington Post reports that Stand with Hillary's creators are "Daniel Chavez, a longtime Democratic political operative, and media producer Miguel Orozco." Orozco wrote the song which is a very different flavor from his previous efforts for Obama in 2008.

The resignation frees the individuals from obligatory church membership taxes, which is where the majority of the Lutheran Church’s income comes from.

    Rand considers himself a new messiah to black voters. Does he have any black friends or did he have any in college? Bill Cassidy for instance isn't as hip as Rand but I know he has a black friend because I saw a picture of his rock band. The same thing with Hispanics. Rand says he knows of no hispanics on welfare which is why he supports amnesty. How many hispanics did he deal as a doctor in Kentucky? Im sure he has hispanic consultant friends.

    Full article from my personal FB account, that I wrote. I sometimes publish these under my old radio-persona name, with the catch-phrase 'Handy-Dandy Helpful Household Hints'. Yes, very cheesy and entirely hokey. 8-) I wrote this one this morning - lots of you probably know most of this already but on the off-chance someone learns something I am sharing. Be blessed, y'all. "Getting your decorations out of storage can mean putting dust, mold and dust mites into your atmosphere; flaring up allergies, sinus problems, sore throats, AND contribute to low energy! Ain’t nobody got time for that! (Summary: Clean your...

    Density altitude is the biggest factor in aircraft take off on a given runway length, temperature, and altitude. I know this from firsthand experience as I used to be a private pilot – until my hearing got so bad that I decided I was a danger to myself and others. This study published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society claims the number of days with a density altitude issue at some airports will increase per RCP model scenarios in 2050-2070. Of course they are assuming that the RCP models produce an accurate output, and that airplanes of the...

    What do you think of when you hear the words Grace and mercy? It is common in this day and age to think of the concept of grace as something of a prayer someone might say before they eat a meal, and mercy, as something of an act of restraint in wreaking loss, devastation, or retribution towards someone who committed an act against another person, or perhaps the inability to pay a debt owed to a certain person within a particular time frame. Without God’s grace and mercy, we could never truly experience a heart of thankfulness if we never...
  • In case you missed it, Michelle Malkin NAILED Obama on his outrageous and enraging Ferguson response

    It truly is a wonder that President Obama could say what he said in response to the Ferguson rioting mob with what we assume to be a straight face. Michelle Malkin utterly nailed him on it and it was beautiful. Take a look: Michelle Malkin âś” @michellemalkin Mr. Executive Order, imperial ruler-in-chief, just told America: "We are a nation built on the rule of law." #FergusonDecision @michellemalkin maybe he's doing his stand-up comedy routine tonight?

    Joe DiMaggio would have turned 100 on Tuesday, so it seems appropriate to remember him as I do — as the finest baseball player I ever saw play our delicate little game. Bobby Doerr, the Hall of Fame Red Sox second baseman, once told me his teammate Ted Williams was the best hitter of their time but that Joe was the best all-around player. I grew up rooting for the Yankees as a kid in New Haven and, much later, when I got to know Joe well, I never failed to feel as if I were in the presence of...
