    Malia Obama is making the most of her time living in Manhattan after exiting the White House. The former first daughter attended a starry HBO “Girls” premiere, then went dancing into the early hours of the morning...We were told that “Secret Service agents were all over the place” at the party, but they managed to blend into the crowd of more than 600 guests...Later, between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m., Malia rolled into Lower East Side club and bar Happy Ending...They stayed for about an hour until around 3 a.m...was photographed arriving later that morning for work.

    That will be the role Hollywood will chronicle in a movie praising The Community Organizer Who Became President & The President Who Returned to the Life of a Community Organizer Outgoing President Barack Obama is leaving the White House in the same venue in which he spent the last eight years: kicking up hedonistic heels for Party Time! The same freeloaders who spent the better part of the last decade boozing it up and gorging themselves at the White House, will whoop it up with party crazed Barack and Michelle as they party on out the door intohopefullycommunity organizer oblivion.

    There arent many people like Michael Wear in todays Democratic Party. The former director of Barack Obamas 2012 faith-outreach efforts is a theologically conservative evangelical Christian. He is opposed to both abortion and same-sex marriage, although he would argue that those are primarily theological positions, and other issues, including poverty and immigration, are also important to his faith. During his time working for Obama, Wear was often alone in many of his views, he writes in his new book, Reclaiming Hope. He helped with faith-outreach strategies for Obamas 2008 campaign, but was surprised when some state-level officials decided not to...
  • Pelosi Clings to Power, to Her Party's Detriment

    After the Republican avalanche of a victory in last month's elections, there was still more good news for the Grand Old Brand New Party courtesy of Nancy Pelosi. It seems she's eked out a narrow victory over a Democratic insurgency against her stultified leadership of the party in the House, a leadership that has been rusting for the past 14 years. If everything isn't coming up roses for the GOP, at least there are tulips covering the horizon the way daffodils do Wye Mountain every spring. And all Nancy Pelosi could say about her aforementioned "leadership" was the same thing...
  • Building Engulfed by Deadly Oakland Fire Had Pending Habitability Complaints

    Sheriff's investigators at the scene of the Oakland fire on Saturday. At least nine people are confirmed dead and several dozen are missing after a fire ripped through the the "Ghost Ship" warehouse in Oakland... As many as 100 people were crowded inside the warehouse for a party when the blaze erupted. They struggled to escape the flames and smoke. Officials fear dozens could have been killed. City records show that there were habitability complaints made against the property's owner as recently as November 14 regarding an "illegal interior building structure." City inspectors appear to have visited the building on...
  • President-Elect Donald Trump Will Attend Donors Villains and Heroes Costume Party

    Donald Trump‘s plans for Saturday night are all about a decadent costume party being held in Long Island by donors who supported his presidential campaign. The party has a “Villains and Heroes” theme, and it is being hosted by the family of hedge fund magnate Robert Mercer. Politico noted that Mercer gave a $2 million donation to a pro-Trump super PAC during the election, and his daughter Rebekah Mercer has ties to Trump’s transition team and three of his biggest staffers: Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, and David Bossie. “It will be the hottest ticket in town,” Conway said to Bloomberg....

    WASHINGTON, United States Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein dropped her efforts Saturday to request a vote recount in Pennsylvania, one of three battleground states won by Donald Trump where she is challenging the results. Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the court, read a filing submitted in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. On Twitter, she later added: #Recount2016 is so expensive because of elected leaders who have refused to invest in a 21st-century voting system.

Ryan said, [T]he average American, the average working-class American, flipped their middle finger to the establishment, the Democratic establishment, the Republican establishment, Wall Street. They think that everybodys more concerned with the donor class than they the working class. He added, [W]e cant keep going down the...

    Following president-elect Donald J. Trump’s historic victory, Paul Ryan seemed eager to heap praise upon the next Republican President and his “enormous political feat.” “What Donald Trump just pulled off is an enormous political feat. It’s an enormous feat in that he heard those voices that were out there that other people weren’t hearing. And he just earned a mandate. And we now just have a unified Republican government,” Ryan told reporters on Wednesday. “If you listened to us in the closing days of this campaign, whether it was crisscrossing America or crisscrossing Wisconsin, we were making an appeal...
  • IDEA: Sponsor a Pre-Vote PARTY - Help The Trump Ground Game Election Day

    11/07/2016 12:52:08 PM PST · by Diogenez · 5 replies
    Hey, why not sponsor one helluva pre-vote party get together for friends (and their friends, and friends of friends etc.)? No Booze (till after the vote, anyway). Don't forget name labels and if people kick in a buck or two, they get co-sponsor labels. The Hillary forces have a crushing ground game - a powerful voter "pulling operation" to get out their vote. Right now, the Dems are way ahead in this says The US News & World Report (The-Report, "Fight On the Ground", Oct. 14 2016 by Susan Milligan") The DNC & the unions are joining left-wing groups of...

    Dilbert ^ | Scott Adams
    Ive been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together. As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms. If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it. If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car. On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message. They insult. They try to shame. They label. And obviously they threaten my livelihood. If you speak of Trump at work you could get fired....

    Philanthropist and banker turned musician Ivan Wilzig had a surprise guest at his naked $1million 60th birthday party in the Hamptons - a drone. The security team at Wilzig's 10-acre Water Mill estate, dubbed the Playboy Mansion of the Hamptons, used the flying device to make sure the 700 partygoers behaved themselves and to prevent gatecrashers at the Garden of Eden themed bash on Saturday where clothing was optional. Partygoers were handed fig leaves as they entered the celebrations and many followed the undress code, the New York Daily News' gossip column Confidential reported. Posting to Facebook today, Wilzig, who...

    Mamaw encouraged me to get a jobshe told me that it would be good for me and that I needed to learn the value of a dollar. When her encouragement fell on deaf ears, she then demanded that I get a job, and so I did, as a cashier at Dillmans, a local grocery store. Working as a cashier turned me into an amateur sociologist. A frenetic stress animated so many of our customers. One of our neighbors would walk in and yell at me for the smallest of transgressionsnot smiling at her, or bagging the groceries too heavy one...

    My office is holding its annual Summer Barbecue in a couple of weeks. Calling it a 'barbecue' is a bit extravagant, as all we do is cook hot dogs and hamburgers on a propane grill ;-) and the stars of the show are usually the wonderful side dishes that folks from many different ethnic cuisines bring to the party. This year it will be a much smaller affair, with our 'grill master' out on knee-replacement surgery, other staff leaving for new jobs, and lots of folks away for Summer. But I have to come up with a side dish! I...

    While interviewing Bernie Sanders on "Meet The Press" on October 11, 2015 Chuck Todd asked the following question: Are you a capitalist? Bernie answered No. Im a democratic socialist. To properly understand his answer, it is helpful to go back 104 years to the candidacy of Eugene V. Debs who, in 1912, ran for president on the Socialist Party ticket. In that election, there were four candidates for President: William Howard Taft (Republican), Theodore Roosevelt (Progressive), Woodrow Wilson (Democrat), and Eugene V. Debs (Socialist). On some of the platform planks, there was an overlap between the Socialists and the Progressives....

    Donald Trump might have written The Art of the Deal, but the title he should peruse today is Dale Carnegies How to Win Friends and Influence People. His more vocal supporters, and by that I mean those who act out on the internet precisely as Donald does on the stump, should pick up a copy as well. Both the candidate and his hard-core supporters have missed the idea that it is the job of the winner to unite a party. Oddly the Trumpists defend their offensive and insulting demeanor by saying that neither John McCain nor Mitt Romney reached out...

    A Lexington woman is sentenced to 20 years in prison after a 15-year-old boy dies of alcohol poisoning at a party at her home. 15-year-old Nicholas Faught died at the party allegedly hosted by Tonya Moss and Justin Moore in March of 2015. At the sentencing, the victim's mother gave her testimony, the whole time choking back tears and looking straight at Moss saying she will never understand what her family is going through. The defendant also gave her testimony, claiming she did not know about the party and thought her son was only having a bonfire with a few...

    In a February post titled, Its Not Just the GOP The Democratic Party is Also Imploding, I noted the following: Yes, of course, Trump winning the GOP nomination marks the end of the party as we know it. After all, some neocons are already publicly and actively throwing their support behind Hillary. While this undoubtably represents a major turning point in U.S. political history, many pundits have yet to appreciate that the exact same thing is happening within the Democratic Party. Its just not completely obvious yet. While it might sound strange, a coronation of Hillary Clinton in the...
