I have been thinking about my '7 facts about me' thanks to Gerard Keegan, Lindsay Mcintosh and Aimie Wilson for the nomination. My first is I saw Elvis Presley perform live in Las Vegas in 1972 when I was 7. Number two my big sister took me on a road trip from Los Angeles to San Fransisco in a 1963 Cadillac when I was 12. Number three I stood as a candidate for the Communist Party of Great Britain in a Council election when I was 18 and my parents were on holiday 😁. Number four I fell in a pub toilet cubicle (White House in Berry St) and the Fire Brigade were called to free me 👏👏👏. Number five I met the Queen. Number six I am a qualified Interior Designer. Number Seven I first met George Ryan at the Transport and General Workers Union Eastbourne Centre, I introduced myself when I overheard him say 'That Lassie fae Liverpool's a F*ing Tube', I did'nt realise at the time it was a term of endearment 😳💚 I nominate Angela Feeney and Russell Robertson for 7 facts about them.

President Barack Obama's top adviser and confidant told a group of global elites on Thursday in Las Vegas, Nevada that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has made a commitment to the White House to try to pass amnesty legislation this year.
And it matters that President Obama and the Clintons lied to us and ignored the deaths of 4 fellow Americans! And how disgraceful it was that while our men lay bleeding on that field of battle the very next day Obama goes on the campaign trail flying to Las Vegas. Callous liar that he is the White House concocted another lie to blame the terrorist attack as an incident that was another untruth. White House hear us loud and clear. True patritic Americans care and we will be voting.

Via Glenn Greenwald: *** Cheney: concerns over NSA are "hogwash" - says programs "probably would've allowed us to stop 9/11." LISTEN: In Private Speech, *** Cheney Talks Bombing Iran and GOP Donors Applaud The former Vice President also calls criticism of the NSA "hogwash" and rips the "increasing strain of isolationism" in the GOP. "What do former Vice President *** Cheney, billionaire mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, and Republican activists and funders talk about—and applaud—when they're behind closed doors at a Las Vegas hotel? Bombing Iran. Listen to the audio of Cheney's speech: past weekend, the Republican Jewish Coalition held its spring leadership meeting at Adelson's Venetian hotel, where several possible 2016 contenders, including ex-Governor Jeb Bush and current Governors Chris Christie, Scott Walker, and John Kasich, showed up to kiss the ring of the casino magnate, who's looking to bankroll a viable Republican presidential candidate. Though the heavy-on-Israel speeches of the White House ...
I love it; it seems that Certain Republican Leaders are having {a private get together} sponsored by a Jewish Billionaire, so they can decide what the Republican Party should do to take control of the White House... They are called the Republican Jewish Coalition... Hmmm? Well where is the Republican White Coalition, or the Republican Black Coalition, or the Latino Republican Coalition? I thought Republicans were all just Americans? And considering so many say Republicans {are the True Christians} of America and The World, why are all these {State Leaders} hanging out at a Convention in the Billionaires Casino in Las Vegas? Could they not do {what they need} in Alabama at a civic center? Yes, my trouble in Atlanta was because of the 2012 Elections, and even though I did not Vote for Obama, nor am I a Democrat, I was singled out because I shared information like this... At least Governor Christy {made a slip} at this Zionist Only Event when we said: I should fly a helicopter over Occupied Palestine... The ...
Money Bag Jews Deciding Next GOP Zio Stooge : From David Duke In yet another indication of the farcical nature of US presidential elections, the major Republican Jewish lobby is holding its first “primary” from which the next set of pro-Israeli candidates will be chosen as “candidates” for the 2016 election. In what is openly being called the “Jewish Republican Primary,” the Times of Israel, a newspaper based in Israel, has proudly announced that “GOP hopefuls” have come to Las Vegas to “court [Sheldon] Adelson” in order to get enough money to win the Republican nomination. According to the report, which is based on an Associated Press wire story, “Republican super donor Sheldon Adelson is the main attraction for White House hopefuls as the Republican Jewish Coalition begins its annual ‘spring leadership meeting’ Thursday along the city’s storied strip, the site of Adelson’s Venetian resort hotel and casino. “With an eye toward the 2016 presidential contest, prospective can ...
Zionist Jews are the biggest donors that finance the US presidential election campaign of both the Democratic President Barack Obama as well as his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney. The leading declared financier of US election campaigns in 2012 is casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson, who has so far donated $34.2 million to Republican Political Action Committees that support Romney’s publicity bid to win enough votes to move to the White House, the Associated Press reported Friday. A staunch supporter of Israel, says the report, “he also is a contributor to the Republican Jewish Coalition, which spent $920,000 since 2002 backing bills aimed at pressuring Iran and enhancing US security cooperation with Israel.” In Israel, meanwhile, Adelson owns the widely circulated, pro-Benjamin Netanyahu free daily paper Israel Hayom. Worth an estimated $25 billion, Adelson oversees the Las Vegas Sands Corp., which runs casino and resort interests in Las Vegas, Singapore, and Pennsylvania, and Sands China Ltd., a bunc ...

I met John Podesta at two of the National Clean Energy Summits in Las Vegas. He is incredibly intelligent and seems to always have every fact at his fingertips when needed. And of course, he's a clean energy advocate: ...from MSNBC: Washington fix-it insider joins the Obama White House: Perhaps responding to Democrats and the Chattering Class inside the Beltway, President Obama is bringing in a veteran Washington insider to help him manage the executive branch. And the move comes at the loWest Point so far in Obama’s presidency. NBC News confirms the news, first reported by the New York Times, that former Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta is joining the White House as a counselor for one year. This isn’t a shakeup in the classic sense -- no one has been fired, and Podesta (who headed Obama’s transition in 2008-2009) is a familiar face to this White House. But it is what a shakeup looks like the usually calm and cool Obama World. Given his chief-of-staff work during Clinton’s second term (especia ...

There are many problems facing the United States of America. All caused by Barrack Obama and his administration. Everyday from Jay Carney Press Secretary for Obama refuses to take questions, regarding the Benghazi murders! When he does answer questions they make no sense, or he lies. The Scandals and COVERUPS by OBAMA is unconscionable, the following scandal is still open and to date have not been resolved, only covered up! * BENGHAZI Libya 4 Americans murdered by terrorists on 9/11/2012! At the beginning of the attack Hillary Clinton was immediately notified and contacted OBAMA! Both new the level of the attack yet they refused to send help! The next day Sunday Ambassador Rice went on five news shows blaming the attack on a video! Obama came out of the White House and alluded to the video. Later that morning off he went to Las Vegas for a political outing! The coverup continued in fact Two a Generals were shown the door and other military we're told to keep their mouths shut or they would pay dearly! Re ...
In case you don't to see the link I posted earlier this is what was written: Washington - They came from Las Vegas, Nevada, and Corpus Christi, Texas, from all over the country to the nation's capital, heeding a call for a "million vets march" to protest the government shutdown.In the end, it wasn't million of veterans but perhaps several hundred. And it drew far-right Republicans such as former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and Senator Ted Cruz, the man credited with engineering the shutdown. But for Freddie Olivarez, 69, a military veteran who drove 2,400 kilometres with his family from Corpus Christi to make his point, it was important to be there.Sitting in front of the fence on Sunday at the White House, where the veterans ended up after carrying away the barricades at the World War II Veterans memorial on the Mall, his sign said: "Republicans, Democrats, We are one: America." While the message could send a much welcome dose of common sense to the Republicans and Democrats in their ever-more-risky stan ...

Two Sides of Reality: Dan Mitrione When Frank Sinatra and Jerry Lewis gave a special performance in Richmond, Indiana during the fall of 1970, their tribute to Dan Mitrione would live forever in the memory of the small town. In addition to the Las Vegas celebrities, then-US President Richard Nixon sent his son-in-law, David Eisenhower, and his Secretary of State William Rogers to attend Mitrione’s funeral. Mitrione’s “devoted service to the cause of peaceful progress in an orderly world will remain as an example for free men everywhere,” White House spokesperson Ron Ziegler said at the time. The reason for the fanfare? Mitrione was murdered by Uruguay’s Tupamaros, also known as the Tupamaros National Liberation Movement, an urban guerrilla organization operating during the 1960s and '70s. A Richmond native, recalling the Sinatra-Lewis event, referred to the group as terrorists. Certainly that’s the way most Richmond people remember the Tupamaros. During the 1970s, the US aimed to prevent the s ...

25 Crazy Facts about U.S. Presidents Cradle robbers, poker players, models, sex addicts, and wrestlers - all of whom strangely enough went on to become presidents of the United States of America. On this President's Day, we bring you 25 of the most ridiculous facts about the U.S. presidents. 1. Ronald Reagan was a stand-up comedian. In 1954, the actor showed off his humor chops at a gig in Las Vegas. 2. John Quincy Adams skinny dipped in the Potomac River. 3.

Hey swimmers here are more interesting and unusual facts about swimming! There's even some fitting Presidental facts for your enjoyment! •There is enough water in American swimming pools to cover the whole city of San Francisco seven feet deep. •Some hotels in Las Vegas have gambling tables floating in their swimming pools. •Kangaroos swim by moving their legs independently of each other.something that they can’t do on land! •President Andrew Jackson, who had the Orangery built and whose inaugural reception became a bacchanal on the lawn - apparently enjoyed early-morning swims au natural in the nearby Potomac River, followed by some weeding and digging around in the White House gardens. •While swimming, penguins will leap above the surface of the water, a practice called porpoising. This coats their plumage with tiny bubbles that reduce friction, allowing them to swim as fast as 20 miles per hour (32 kph). •An armadillo can walk under water. •The average 70-year-old heart has pumped over ...
Dear X, Pres. Obama announced yesterday that he wants 11 million+ illegal aliens put on a pathway to U.S. citizenship with jobs and benefits as soon as possible. What do YOU want??? Obama was a bit vague in his Las Vegas speech, but the policy outline distributed by the White House makes very clear his demands. Full voting citizenship for most all 11+ million illegal aliens with NO CONDITIONS. NO guarantees about border security. NO E-Verify in place to check for employment fraud. NO funding of Entry-Exit visa-checking system. After reviewing Obama's plan, our Director of Government Relations, Rosemary Jenks, told the press: "This is not a serious plan for comprehensive immigration reform; it is a comprehensive special-interest New Year's wish list, in which everyone gets something except the American people. Unfortunately, all Americans get is the bill, which they will have to pay with their jobs and their tax dollars." --Rosemary Jenks, NumbersUSA The other plan to surface this week is from a Senate "Ga ...
Comments (90) | Add a comment Back to: Opinion This letter THAT I WROTE appeared in the Las Vegas R/J NEWSPAPER LETTERS Tyrone Woods gave his life in Benghazi To the editor: Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked, "What difference does it make" about Benghazi? Ask the loved ones of the four murdered men. I knew more about it than she still claims the White House knew. Ambassador Christopher Stevens pleaded for help from the chief of staff for seven hours, and instead President Obama felt that coming to Las Vegas was more important. Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods risked his career by disobeying orders to stand down; instead he gave his life. These men were under the direct protection of the White House, and their pleas were ignored. I asked more than 10 people in various locations about Benghazi, and only two vaguely knew anything about it. Nice work, media. Poor Susan Rice. She had to bite the bullet, and now Mrs. Clinton did the same. I think America needs to hear from the 19 people who were re ...
President Obama said Tuesday that "now's the time" for immigration reform, using an address in Las Vegas to try and energize renewed talks in Congress toward comprehensive legislation. "I'm here today because the time has come for common-sense comprehensive immigration reform," Obama said. The president, setting out to achieve an immigration overhaul where many before him have failed, was running into trouble even before he gave his address. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., one of four Republican senators involved in a bipartisan effort to craft immigration legislation, earlier in the day blasted Obama for opposing a requirement to shore up border security before legalizing up to 11 million illegal immigrants. Obama's speech, and a separate fact sheet handed out by the White House, made clear that the administration does not want to link the path to citizenship to border enforcement. The president said Tuesday that in order for immigration reform to work, "It must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway ...
President Barack Obama unveiled his vision for immigration reform in a speech on Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas, Nev., telling Congress that he will send them his own bill and call for a vote if they don't move fast. "If Congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, I will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away," Obama said to applause from students at Del Sol High School. "It looks like there's a genuine desire to get this done soon, and that's very encouraging," Obama said, mentioning a blueprint put forward by a bipartisan group of eight senators on Monday. "But this time action must follow." Obama's speech was the latest move in a chess match between the White House and Some Republicans in Congress to craft an outline for reform that can both be enacted into law while meeting the expectataions of the growing population of Hispanic voters who now overwhelmingly favor Democrats. Some Republicans want to support immigration reform in part to combat the pa ...
Obama to Announce Immigration Plan Tuesday Tell Congress You Oppose Amnesty! Tomorrow - Tuesday - Mr. Obama will travel to Las Vegas to announce his plan to grant amnesty to the 11-12 million illegal aliens living in the United States. The President's speech comes only days after the President met with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus at the White House to reiterate that he intends to prioritize a mass amnesty bill, and just one day after a group of bipartisan Senators released their plan for amnesty legislation! The MS Tea Party urges our members, activists, and supporters to call their Representatives and Senators NOW and tell them they oppose giving amnesty to illegal aliens! Tell them you oppose amnesty because: Granting any legal status to illegal aliens unfairly rewards law-breaking. Granting amnesty to illegal aliens will not "solve the problem once and for all." We learned this after the 1986 amnesty. Instead, granting amnesty will do nothing but encourage more illegal immigration. Will Congress ...
Sunday, 9:00 AM PST. A cheery good morning to all. This is Inauguration Day. President Obama just took the "official" oath of office for his second term, in a private ceremony at the White House to comply with the constitutional, January 20th date. Joe Biden already took the oath early this morning, being sworn in by Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Although I am largely agnostic; may God - if he/she exists - protect these good men and their families. Tomorrow will be the public ceremony, the parade and the celebratory balls and other events. I'll dispense with a "Top Of The News" summary this morning and simply share something that disturbed me greatly yesterday. As most of you know, I live in rural Pahrump, Nevada (60 miles NW of Las Vegas), a town of 36,000 where the residents have steadfastly resisted incorporation as a city...largely opposed to the higher taxation they claim will ensue. It is also a bastion of right-wing sentiment which I deal with daily...though not for much longer, as I'll be moving back t ...
Issue: Token Black White Democrats accuse black Republicans of being tokens, while black Democrats accuse black Republicans for not being black enough. Fact 1: It was white Republicans that fought for civil rights (Lincoln was a Republican). Fact 2: It was white Democrats that fought against civil rights. (Democrat Senator Byrd from WV was a white, male, Grand Wizard of the KKK.) Fact 3: The first blacks in congress were Republicans (7 elected to the 41st and 42nd congress in the 1870s). Fact 4: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. Fact 5: The majority of Obama's cabinet members are white males. The Progressive agenda is headed by white males stationed in Chicago and Las Vegas, so it would be apropos to conclude that both Valarie Jarrett and Barack Obama are token blacks in the White House. Let it be said that any black Democrat (including, but not limited to Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, et al.) is a token black for the Democrat party, preferring to remain in the chains that bind th ...
I certainly hope that our lawmakers in Washington DO NOT BACK DOWN on the investigation into the Benghazi, Libya tragedy. Remember Obama Supporters 4 American Citizens died because of the incompetent State Dept. and White House and your President was partying in Las Vegas and New York.
Three months ago today, President Obama woke up to the news that US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans had been murdered during a terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi. The president had been informed that an active attack was underway the night before -- but how actively he followed the developing raid, and what (if any) orders he issued, remains a mystery. On September 12, the president skipped his daily intelligence briefing and flew to Las Vegas for a campaign rally. This much we know. The Obama campaign eventually accused Republicans of "politicizing" the massacre by asking questions about it, asserting that the "entire reason" it was a major national story was due to rank exploitation of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Even with the president's re-election safely tucked away, the White House has continued to defend its UN Ambassador (and possible Secretary of State in waiting) against charges that she dissemminated false information to mislead the public about the true nature ...
Commander-in-Chief Obama is no leader and fires those who lead. fired Adm. Charles Gaouette, commander of the USS John Stennis (aircraft carrier) Strike Group (Mediterranean), for moving the fleet closer to Libya during the Benghazi consulate attack and launching armed aircraft to orbit for close air support. Also fired was Gen. Carter Ham, commander of African Command, for preparing ground forces to go into Libya to protect the consulate. officers had received messages that this was a terrorist attack and were reacting accordingly. Commander-in-Chief Obama's conscious decision to do nothing because of political concerns was a disgrace to all who defend or have defended our country. He will never be respected by our military. President Obama had access to the massacre in real time and then fled the White House to fund raise in Las Vegas. The two former SEALS were ordered to "stand down" but ignored the order. General Ham's quick reaction forces were ready to deploy and was ignoring Department of Defense s ...
Things are looking hopeful to me. From Politico: MORNING MINDMELD : On paper, the election was status quo: President Obama reelected, Dems running the Senate, Republicans running the House. In reality, the results touched off massive momentum shifts and power grabs, with liberals feeling even more empowered than after '08, and younger Republicans rushing to fill the vacuum at the top of a chastened party. Washington was frozen. Now, it's molten. Mitt Romney accelerated the GOP's pivot with his widely panned remarks blaming his thumping on "gifts" Obama had given different minority constituencies. Republican governors meeting out in Las Vegas lit him up, and are invoking his comments as the antithesis of the more open party they are sketching - including more flexibility in tax negotiations with the White House., and new calls for a legal path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants.
For those of you who are happy for President Obama's win, how do you feel about Benghazi, that four men died, that they had requested extra security and that Obama denied it,then Obama Biden, and Hillary Clinton watched the four men get killed, Obama went too sleep that night and got up the next day and went too Las Vegas too campaign. He nor anyone else in the White House called it a terrorist attack. They blamed it on a video that came out in June. All of the people that were in the Situation Room and watched these four men get killed have blood on their hands. And you want them running our country? And Republicans are the dumb ones?
The Examiner reported on Oct. 26 that a May 2010 Obama state dinner for Mexican President Felipe Calderón cost nearly $1 million, or $4,700 per attendee. Three other Obama state dinners since 2009 cost half a million or more, according to official documents cited by the newspaper. A special concert stage was erected in a massive walled tent on the South Lawn where singer Beyoncé entertained guests for the Calderon dinner. Private trolleys ferried guests from the White House to the tent, and a Celebrity Chef was brought in from Chicago to prepare a special menu for the event. Such spending “creates the appearance that the White House and State Department are not planning and executing state dinners responsibly,” Issa said in the letter. The House panel began investigating wasteful federal spending earlier this year when it was learned that General Services Administration employees partied for five days at a Las Vegas conference that cost $823,000.
I found it sadly ironic that Pres. Obama has decided to stay back in the White House overseeing a force of Nature, Hurricane Sandy, over which he has no control. Yet continued his re-election campaign after watching the events unfold in real time in Benghazi. In that situation, he had complete control as Commander in Chief to send in assets to rescue Americans yet made the call to "Stand Down" and did nothing. Instead, the next day continued on to Las Vegas as they brought back the bodies of 4 dead Americans. Acting presidential now is appropriate during this weather disaster but acting in his duty of protecting our people in Libya on Sept. 11th was not "optimal". Just shaking my head over this hapless, political hack who currently occupies the Oval Office. I cannot say how strongly repulsed I am by his cowardice.
Yes, he was president when Osama was killed... But why Bengazi matters even more: "...despite the administration's indignant reaction to a low-budget anti-Islam video which for two weeks was blamed for the loss of life in Benghazi, the White House was fully aware that what was happening was indeed a terrorist attack. In the Situation Room... the White House watched in real time, via Predator drone, for five of the seven hours that the four Americans struggled to Stay Alive. In the end, President Obama chose to do nothing to stop it. Worse yet, it is being alleged that while Christopher Stevens was being tortured, raped, and killed, the president, who had plans to go to Las Vegas for a fundraiser the next day, went to bed. Meanwhile, as the president slept, life-saving troops were but an hour away in Italy!!!
“We’ve never had a situation where the press has purposefully decided to pick up a narrative from the White House to not tell people things that happened in order to support their overwhelming candidate for president, Barack Obama,” he said. Caddell also blasted President Obama for campaigning in Las Vegas after U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, saying even former President Jimmy Carter, who he worked under, refused to campaign during National Security threats during the 1980 election, most notably the Iranian hostage crisis. “This isn’t about partisanship, this is about danger,” he added. “The reason the First Amendment exists without any checks and balances on the media is because they are supposed to protect the people, that is the implicit bargain.” Instead, Caddell compared the U.S. media to “Pravda,” a state-controlled newspaper that was owned by the Soviet Union. He noted that outlets like the New York Times refused to seriously d ...
President Obama's schedule for September 12, 2012 Looks like business as usual, in spite of what was taking place and had taken place in Benghazi the night before: THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press Secretary FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE DAILY GUIDANCE AND PRESS SCHEDULE FOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 In the morning, the President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing in the Oval Office. This meeting is closed press. In the morning, the President will deliver a statement in the Rose Garden. Secretary of State Clinton will also attend. This statement is open press. Shortly after, the President and Secretary Clinton will visit the State Department in Washington, DC. This visit is closed press. The in-town travel pool will accompany. In the afternoon, the President will depart the White House en route Las Vegas, Nevada. The departure from the South Lawn and the arrival at McCarran International Airport are open press. While in Las Vegas, the President will deliver remarks at a campaign event. The Presid ...
Now that we know that President Obama was informed within 24 hours, and BEFORE he went to Las Vegas, that the Benghazi Embassy attack was a terrorist operation carried out by an Al Qaeda affiliate, does anyone want to know who in the White House told Jay Carney to lie about the circumstances surrounding the death of our ambassador and three other Americans? And who in the State Department told our UN ambassador (who reports to the Secretary of State) to tell the same outrageously false story five days later on all five Sunday morning news programs?. This used to be the kind of story that news organizations fought to uncover. Before Obama.
As I write this - Pakistan, Iraq, Indonesia, SRI Lanka, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Kashmir, Nigeria, Malaysia, India, Iran, & Denmark are in the midst of violent and deadly anti-American protests. While they burn our flag, shout 'death to America' and kill and torture our Ambassador, our White House finally admitted that 9/11/12 was actually a premeditated, planned terrorist attack. This had nothing to do with the video that Hillary Clinton seems to keep apologizing for. Our president, instead of addressing our Nation about this violence and meeting with the Prime Minister of Israel (our closest ally), had more important things to do such as appearing on David Letterman, going off to Las Vegas for a fund raiser, and taking time for rappers, one of which is referred to as 'The Pimp with the Limp!' He whispers away our National Security to Russian President Medvedev a few months ago, not realizing the microphone was on. It is time for AMERICA to wake up! Our freedom isn't free and there are countless fallen ...
In the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Egypt and the brutal murder of four Americans in Libya, Barack Obama prepared for a fund-raising swing to Las Vegas leaving Governor Mitt Romney to take a strong stand for America. America’s longing for leadership in the White House was heightene...
It is early Saturday morning and there are 21 countries protesting and rioting against the US. In Tunisia, the black Al-Quida flag has replaced our American flag at the embassy. Christopher Stevens, the US ambasador to Libya has been killed as well as 2 marines and another staff person. American flags are being burned all over the Middle East all while Jay Carney, the White House press secretary is saying that these actions are not against the US. The world is on fire and President Barack Hussein Obama has been in Las Vegas doing fund raisers. His Middle Eastern policy has collapsed and we are being seen as a weak nation in the Middle East. He snubs Israel and apologizes to the Muslim countries. I am so fearful for our children and grandchildren at this moment in history.
Sept 12, 2012: President Barack Obama re-election campaign tour stops in Las Vegas. Rally takes place one day after 9/11 remembrance in US and after Embassy attacks in Libya and Egypt.

How wonderful; US embassies all over the world being attacked & our President Obama went to Las Vegas, Nevada for a fund raiser. When in Us history has a president gone to a fundraiser in critical time? Clint Eastwood is correct - there is an Empty Chain in the White House. Let's think before we vote this time around.
Obama said, "We had a 'rough' day" speaking of those that were killed in the American Embassy while he was in Las Vegas raising money for his campaign. All that day the embassy had been sending reports to the White House that they needed help. Why didn't he send them the help to save their lives? An attack on one of our Embassy's is an attack on our country and he just goes about his business of raising money for himself not thinking about the Americans in the Embassy and yet he claims he cares about the American people? Oh, I guess, loosing lives, Americans being killed, and families in mourning all just equal up to a 'rough day' to him. No big deal. We had another president, Jimmy Carter, that allowed hostages to be held in another Embassy until Ronald Regan was voted in and he said that they had better be released before he took office and they were. Carter was a Dem and Reagan was a Rep. Something to think about...
"There's a broader lesson to be learned here. Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later," Obama said in an interview with CBS News's Steve Kroft that was scheduled before four Americans were killed Tuesday at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. "As president, one of the things I've learned is you can't do that," Obama added. "It's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them." Asked if Romney's remarks were irresponsible, Obama responded: "I'll let the American people judge that." White House press secretary Jay Carney read more of what Obama said in the interview to reporters aboard Air Force One as the president headed to Las Vegas for an evening campaign event. Most Republicans "reacted responsibly, waiting to find out the facts before they talk, making sure that our number one priority is the safety and security of American personnel," Obama said, according to Carne ...
Americans Die, Obama Aplologizes and Goes to Las Vegas September 12, 2012 By International Law the embassy and consulate of a foreign country are considered the sovereign soil of that country and a violation is considered up to an act of war. Personnel from that facility are not to be interfered with by the host country. It is NOT a minor matter. Dring the Cold War the USA never violated Russian immunities, for example, nor do we do so for any unfriendly country here, like the UN is stocked with. It is unforgivable to only issue a platitude of a speech and then jet off to a campaign fund raiser. if nothing else, this displays the disregard Obama has for the USA and our people. (Update: In a second schedule update issued around 10:42 a.m. on Wednesday, the White House indicated that President Obama would continue with his campaign trip to Las Vegas after issuing a statement on events in Libya and Egypt in the Rose Garden. The only change in the updated schedule is this: “Shortly after (the Rose Garden st ...

Just returned home from an incredible vacation! For the past 19 years my husband and I have never gone on a vacation without our kids. They have been to many of the states in the US, from Alaska to Florida (3 times), California (twice) to Cape Cod (5 times). Germany (twice), Holland, Belguim, France, Austria are some of the places they've gone with us. We;ve taken them to Vancouver, Niagara Falls and Montreal in Canada. They have been to the White House when the President was there. We've taken them to Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and just this past week the Grand Canyon and Bryce National Park as well as Las Vegas. The day before we left I thought this may be our last trip as a family for how the two kids were arguing but from the first day of the trip to the last day they laughed and got along so well that we will continue to enjoy seeing the world with them! Celebrated Joey's 19th birthday on our vacation! It was a vacation we all needed! Time goes by fast and I'm glad we had that time ...
"Elvis Presley arrives at the White House in full make-up, wearing a large brass-buttoned Edwardian jacket over a purple velvet tunic with matching trousers, held up by a vast gold belt. A necklace and a gold pendant hang from his neck. Though slightly put out when asked to hand over the chrome-plated World War II Colt .45 he has brought as a gift for the President, he strides confidently into the Oval Office at 12.30 p.m. and proceeds to present President Nixon with two signed photographs. He then spreads his collection of police badges over the Oval Office desk for him to admire. The two men speak about Las Vegas and young people. Elvis launches into a passionate diatribe against the Beatles: they have come to America and taken American money, then gone back to England to foster anti-American feeling." I always thought ZZ Top did a better version of "Viva Las Vegas".
Those who want to see Barack Obama out of the White House have a tough, no-holds-barred ally in Las Vegas-and Israel-based billionaire gambling tycoon Sheldon Adelson, who some call “the modern-day Meyer Lansky,” recalling the longtime head of the national crime syndicate.
Obama, joined by Vice President Joe Biden, praised the winners of a national police association award at a White House ceremony that honored 34 officers who showed valor in an assortment of tense standoffs, shootings and rescues. "They are representative of the sacrifices and that quiet courage that exists among law enforcement officers all across the country and their families," Obama said in a Rose Garden ceremony. Recipients included 15 members of the Detroit Police Department who confronted a gunman who opened fire in a local precinct station; five Las Vegas officers who stopped an assailant who shot an officer at a Wal- Mart; and five New York City police detectives who rescued two cadets at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point who had become disoriented while rock climbing. Other award winners hailed from Los Angeles; Miami; Chicago; Woburn, Mass.; Paramus, N.J.; Copley, Ohio; and Chattanooga, Tenn. It was Obama's first joint appearance with Biden since the Vice President, according to aides, apo ...
In 2009, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) urged the White House and individual federal agencies to lift government travel bans on cities known as resort towns like Las Vegas -- the site of a controversial $823,000 General Services Administration conference in 2010.
WASHINGTON -- After Republican lawmakers sought to tie the White House to the General Services Administration scandal, Rep. John Mica (R) on Tuesday conceded that the repeated hearings on the subject are an attempt to "score political points," an admission he then retracted while holding they are pa...
Rep. John Mica accused the White House on Tuesday of being keeping quiet about the excessive spending by General Services Administration officials for a 2010 conference in Las Vegas. “People from the White House knew about it, did nothing, kept it quiet until just a few days ago when the statement w...
Let's elect Charlie Manson for President in 2012, because he killed less people than Jim Jones. That is the logic brought forth by Obama fans. They pick the president who they found disgusting and continuously compare their "savior" to that president. They would have us vote Obama in again, because "he's better than Bush." The GSA spent $300,000.00 on Bush's watch, so we shouldn't blame Obama for $800,000.00 worth of waste in one swift Las Vegas event. However, Obama was bringing change. Remember? Little did we know his "change" would triple the national debt and triple the waste within government. Nor did we know he would start more wars, when they awarded him the peace prize before he really started to rule. Actually, if Obamacare is approved by the courts, he will more than triple the national debt. I might add the cry for higher taxes on the "rich" cry from Obama and his followers while implying the extra money would help the poor is as false as the promises he keeps making. This latest fias ...
White House pushing blame on Bush administration for GSA debacle--The Obama administration is responding to the recent report that shows a federal agency spent more that $800,000 on a lavish conference near Las Vegas by putting some of the blame on the Bush administration. “At least we have taken, bold, swift forceful action to hold those responsible accountable and put in place protections to make sure this never happened again,” a White House official told Fox News. The Inspector General Office’s report last week about the 2010 General Services Administration conference outside of Las Vegas indicates the Obama administration knew about the trip since May 2010. The report was followed by a release of videos.
