Mitt Romney considering a run for US Presidential elections 2016: Mitt Romney, the Republican US presidential nominee in 2012, told a meeting of donors on Friday that he is considering another White House run in 2016, a source familiar with the comments said. The former Massachusetts Governor, who has sent mixed signals about the likelihood of another campaign, told a small group of donors in New York that he was thinking about running and to "tell your friends" he was considering it, the source said. The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the comments, said Romney did not give a timetable for making a decision about whether to launch what would be his third presidential campaign. Romney failed to win the nomination in 2008 and lost the general election to President Barack Obama in 2012. Romney's statement comes as some of the party's top donors begin to line up behind former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who said in December he would actively explore a presidential run. If Romney entered the race, he ...

President Barack Obama still has two years left in his term in office, but the effort to establish his post-presidential library is already underway. The bid for the Obama Presidential Library is down to four locations in three states -- New York, Hawaii, and Illinois. Each of them played an important part in the president’s life before he reached the White House.
New York Mayor Bill De Blasio should immediately resign from office as the last bit of honor he could oblige the people of New York and a nation that witnessed the murder of two police officers by a killer with "rage against cops". Mayor De Blasio's recent comment that his own son has been "trained" how to interact with police for his own safety, after the Eric Garner Grand Jury decision to not indict an NYPD officer for Garner's in-custody death, is absolutely outrageous. That very stance from an elected official is purely racsist. The murderer of these two police officers, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, sought revenge for a perceived injustice. While Brinsley is black, the color of his skin has no more to do with the African-American community than a bad cop means all law enforcement officers are corrupt. Pure and simple. America does not need rascism, nor does it need rascism stoked by elected officials at the highest level, from the office of mayor in New York to the White House. The American people want resp ...

Trapped in a System Where Nothing Changes We Can’t Breathe by TARIQ ALI ‘We live in a post-racial society,’ Obama enthused, referring to his own victory, soon after entering the White House. It sounded hollow at the time, though many wanted to believe it. Nobody does today. Not even Toni Morrison. But the response of tens of thousands of young US citizens to the recent outrages in Ferguson, Cleveland and New York is much more important and interesting than the vapours being emitted in DC. There is a vital energy to these protests. The scale, speed and intelligence of the protesters took the country by surprise. In New York they emerged unannounced at different locations avoiding the pitched battle scenario in Berkeley, created by the Bay Area cops whose penchant for rioting at the first possible opportunity is well known. Two miles outside Ferguson, white supremacists torched a black church while cops maintained order in the city. There is police-state talk of making the use of phone cameras illegal ...
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (1929–1994) Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, noted for her style and elegance, was the wife of President John F. Kennedy and a U.S. First Lady. She later married Aristotle Onassis. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was born Jacqueline Lee Bouvier on July 28, 1929, in Southampton, New York. She married John F. Kennedy in 1953. When she became First Lady in 1961, she worked to restore the White House to its original elegance and to protect its holdings. After JFK's assassination in 1963, she moved to New York City. She married Aristotle Onassis in 1968. She died of cancer in 1994. Onassis enjoyed a privileged childhood of ballet lessons at age of 12. Like her mother, Onassis loved riding and was highly skilled on horseback. Onassis attended Miss Porter's School, a prestigious boarding school in Farmington, Connecticut; in addition to its rigorous academics, the school also emphasized proper manners and the art of conversation. There she excelled as a student, writing frequent essays and po ...
HANDS UP-I CAN'T BREATH By:-Gary Norris Gray-BASN Staff Reporter We are at the crossroads in racial relations in the United States of America. Unfortunately we are still viewing images in Black and white in this country. Since The 44th President of the United States entered the White House confrontations have increased year by year. The events in Ferguson, Missouri, Cleveland, Ohio, and Staten Island, New York prove that this country definitely needs judicial restructuring, police training, and racial understanding. This is not a Ferguson, Missouri problem, this is not a Cleveland, Ohio problem, nor is it a Staten Island, New York problem, it is an American problem. With the assistance of the broken justice and police systems racial harmony cannot be found. It has escalated with the help of rich African American stars. The system of oppression, white supremacy, and white privilege continues to be alive and well. Just think if Mr. Brown had been white or if Mr. Gardner were white we would not be having thi ...

USCG HISTORY: On this day, December 7, 1988 - The Coast Guard hosted an international summit between Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, President Ronald Reagan, and President-elect and then-Vice President George H. W. Bush on Governors Island on 7 December 1988. The summit occurred after Gorbachev had addressed the United Nations. In planning his trip to the UN, Gorbachev requested a meeting with Reagan and the White House selected the Coast Guard base at Governors Island as a meeting site since it was a secure military installation in the middle of New York harbor and just minutes away from the United Nations. The leaders met for lunch at the LANTAREA commander's [VADM James Irwin] home. The summit was characterized as "just a luncheon" and the meeting was the last time President Reagan and Gorbachev would meet during Reagan's remaining term. - Tourist's View of N.Y. on Soviet Chief's Agenda November 30, 1988|JOHN J.

Date: 11/12/2014 Imagine, for a moment, sitting at a prestigious steakhouse in Palm Beach, Florida, a hot spot for some of the most wealthy and famous — Donald Trump, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, James Patterson, Rush Limbaugh, and hundreds more. And, imagine dining with a handful of men you’ve only read about. Some of them are worth millions, others published best-selling books, and some have held prominent positions at the White House. In essence, you’re sitting at a five-person table of VIPs. You’re about to take a bite of your New York strip when one of the men, a top U.S. intelligence agent, slams a 164-page document in the middle of the table. This document, you soon find out, contains damning evidence that a network of politicians, corporations, and scientists have conspired together to promote the fear of “global warming” . . . despite evidence clearly stating no such “global warming” exists. The motive: $22 billion per year. To be clear . . . that’s $22 billion of taxpayers’ mo ...
The question has been raised ,"When are Americans going to get off their keyboards and do something about it?" And that is a fair question. Actually, Americans have gotten up, many times with rallies in Washington, Signs across America on the overpasses, Two Million Bikers to DC, The Tea Party and many,many other grass-root groups that spend time and money getting the word out there. However, there are MANY that still fall within the confines of 'Uninformed Voters". These are the residents of the likes of Detroit, Chicago, Ferguson, New Orleans, Los Angeles, New York and just about any urban area where Welfare is key to the economy. Those are the disinterested. Those are the complacent. Those are the duplicitous dead voters. November 4th showed the nation there are people that can get off thier butts and speak out. That "can and will" take action. Resoundingly. Now we wait. We wait for the feckless Congress to do their job and right the wrong. How long will we wait? How much more can "we the people" take ...

President Barack Obama officially nominated Loretta Lynch, a United States attorney from New York, as the next Attorney General of the United States at a White House ceremony Saturday. Speaking from the Roosevelt Room, President Obama said Lynch is "tough, fair" and who throughout her career has followed the principles of "fairness, equality and justice." Lynch said it would be an honor to "lead the department that I love." If confirmed by the Senate, Lynch will be the first African-American woman to hold the post.
Obama chooses NY prosecutor as Attorney General WASHINGTON (AP) — In a second trail-blazing pick for the nation’s top law enforcement officer, President Barack Obama intends to nominate a federal prosecutor in New York to become the next Attorney General and the first black woman to lead the Justice Department. Obama’s spokesman said Friday that he will announce his selection of Loretta Lynch from the White House on Saturday. If confirmed by the Senate, she would replace Eric Holder, who announced his resignation in September after serving as the nation’s first black Attorney General. Lynch, 55, is the U.S. attorney for Eastern New York, which covers Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Long Island, a position she also held under President Bill Clinton. “Ms. Lynch is a strong, independent prosecutor who has twice led one of the most important U.S. attorney’s offices in the country,” Obama press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement. Obama had planned to wait until after a trip to Asia ne ...
THIS DAY THAT YEAR ( 7 / 11 / 14 ) : Nov 7, 1944: FDR reelected a record third time Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt is reelected president of the United States for a record third time, handily defeating his Republican challenger, Thomas Dewey, the governor of New York, and becoming the first and only president in history to win a fourth term in office. Roosevelt, a fifth cousin to former President Theodore Roosevelt, first came to the White House in 1933 with a promise to lead America out of the Great Depression. Aided by a Democratic Congress, Roosevelt took prompt action, and most of his "New Deal" proposals, such as the Agricultural Adjustment Act, National Industrial Recovery Act, and creation of the Public Works Administration and Tennessee Valley Authority, were approved within his first 100 days in office. Although criticized by many in the business community, Roosevelt's progressive legislation improved America's economic climate, and in 1936 he easily won reelection. During his second term, he be ...
Chris Christie was forced on Monday to allow a nurse being kept in a hospital quarantine tent to go home after intense White House pressure to relax a mandatory 21-day quarantine the New Jersey Governor had imposed at a state level. Nurse Kaci Hickox tested negative for Ebola, but she had remained in a forced hospital quarantine as of earlier today. New Jersey health officials announced mid morning that she would be released and allowed to travel home to Maine via private transportation. The embarrassing turnaround came After Obama chaired a White House meeting on the rules and successfully lobbied Christie's New York counterpart, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to relax their quarantine rules – even as Americans grow more concerned about the possibility of a pandemic emergency. Cuomo gave in on behalf of New Yorkers. But as of Sunday Christie was still pushing for more aggressive measures to protect New Jerseyans, saying he had 'no second thoughts' about the policy. Christie told reporters Monday that he was just d ...

New York State backtracks on Ebola rules after White House weighs in - ***
NEW YORK, Oct 27, 2014: The White House has told states that have imposed mandatory quarantines for some travellers from Ebola-hit West Africa that the policy could impede the fight against the disease, while the first health worker isolated under the rules planned to sue. Kaci Hickox, a nurse placed in 21-day quarantine in a New Jersey hospital after returning from treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, will contest her quarantine in court, her attorney said yesterday, arguing the order violates her constitutional rights. New Jersey, New York and Illinois are imposing quarantines on anyone arriving with a high risk of having contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, where the epidemic has killed nearly 5,000 people. The White House voiced its concern to the governors of New York and New Jersey about the potential impact of quarantine orders, a senior administration ...

July 28-29, 2014 -- USS Seawolf missile shot down TWA 800 By Wayne Madsen According to a senior member of the staff of then-Secretary of the Navy John Dalton, the test firing of a new generation Navy missile from the submarine USS Seawolf accidentally struck TWA flight 800 en route from New York to Paris on July 17, 1996. According to the former Navy official, the missile test was so important for the Clinton administration, it was being shown live on a Navy closed-circuit television feed at the White House. The Seawolf's missile was to have struck a drone reportedly being towed by a Navy P-3 Orion maritime surveillance aircraft. However, to the horror of the Navy personnel involved with the test and senior White House staff gathered to witness the missile's successful launching, it veered off course and intercepted the TWA 800 Boeing 747, killing the 230 passengers and crew on board the aircraft.

Dear Patriot, There are very credible threats that ISIS is planning an attack on American soil in the next few weeks. A confidential memo was discovered by Judicial Watch and confirmed with a copy obtained by Breitbart News warning law enforcement officials near the US-Mexico border that ISIS has developed a presence in Juarez, Mexico, within sight of El Paso. The President has clearly stated that his Administration does not know what to do with the terror group yet he is jetting to New York this weekend for a couple fundraisers and then a wedding. At a time when it should be "all hands on deck", the President is more concerned with getting in an extra few rounds of golf or yucking it up with big Democrat donors. Mr. President, this is what they built the Situation Room in the White House for and there might be someone still around that knows where it is.
My dear European, American and Canadian friends and family - pls take a few minutes from your busy schedule and read this article. I think it is extreemly importent, and especially so following some decisions and acts carried out by President Obama and his White House team. It looks as if their policy is that the best choice for the Middle East will be if The Islamic Brotherwood gain power in some problematic areas such as Israel, Egypt, Gaza Strip and so on. So again you must read the article, and believe me it is not immaginery.

Obama Says Plane Downed From Rebel Area as Russia Blamed President Barack Obama said the U.S. has concluded that a surface-to-air missile launched from insurgent-held territory in eastern Ukraine brought down a Malaysia Airlines jetliner, as that country’s conflict takes a toll on lives far beyond its borders. The disaster that killed all 298 people on the commercial flight has spurred anger among nations whose citizens were lost. Malaysia is sending its transport minister to Kiev today as it called for investigators to be allowed access to the crash site, while Australia’s foreign minister will go to New York to seek a binding United Nations resolution on an independent probe. “Their deaths are an outrage of unspeakable proportions,” Obama said yesterday at the White House. Russia continues to refuse to “de-escalate the situation” in the region, he said, calling for an immediate cease-fire in Ukraine.

This week in NY Carib News New York church Leaders promise stepped up immigration deportation battle By Tony Best New York church leaders are warning President Barack Obama to expect strong push back as the White House moves to quicken the pace of deportations as almost 100,000 immigrant women and children flood immigration centers around the country And the warning has come from the Catholic, Episcopal, Methodist, and other religious institutions that have a long-standing interest in the plight of immigrants, regardless of their legal status. They want compassion, not deportation for undocumented immigrants. The pastors and priests say while they understand the dilemma the President faces as he seeks to solve the crisis caused by the flood of at least 52,000 Central American children and more than 32,000 women who have entered the U.S., often ending up in Texas, Arizona and California but sometimes finding their way into New York, Florida and Connecticut they also want Washington to adopt a more humane s ...

Friends, I encourage you to contact your state politicians as well as the White House to ask for an an exemption on the ivory ban for antique instruments. I, like you, wish to see no harm come to African elephants. That said, to ban the importation of old musical instruments containing any piece of ivory - no matter how small- is downright ludicrous. New Jersey just passed an statewide ivory ban yesterday and apparently made no exemption clause for antiques. New York is taking up the issue today. Okay folks, think back to your music history class and recall that Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore were all big centers of musical instrument manufacturing in the 1800s. Are we really going to stand silently by and allow laws to be passed that don't protect pieces of our musical and cultural heritage??? Please ask our political leaders to have a bit of common sense. I, for one, just e-mailed 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Barack as 275 experts give their verdicts Share 914 inShare11 Email Paul Lewis in Washington, Spencer Ackerman in New York and Saeed Kamali Dehghan in London Theguardian.com, Tuesday 17 June 2014 13.51 BST Jump to comments (898) The Obama adminstration has ordered the urgent deployment of several hundred armed troops in and around Iraq, after the rampant insurgency in the country forced the first talks between the US and Iran over a common security interest in more than a decade. Barack Obama discussed the crisis with national security team on Monday night after earlier notifying Congress that up to 275 troops could be sent to Iraq to provide support and security for personnel and the US embassy in Baghdad. While Obama has vowed to keep US troops out of combat in Iraq, he said in his notification to Congress that the personnel moving into the region were equipped for direct fighting. In addition, officials told Reuters that the White House was considering sending a contingent of special forces to train an ...
Hi everybody, hope your day is going better than Majority Leader Eric Cantor's, who did not lose because he is Jewish. He lost because of the absolute revulsion felt by many on the Right for undocumented Latino immigrants. Further, if GOP voters insist on voting for folks who are blind to the geographic, ethnic, demographic realities of 21st Century America, there will never be another Republican in the White House. And speaking of being Jewish, how cool is it that New York's late, great Cardinal John J. O'Connor's mom was Jewish and that his Eminence's maternal grandfather was a rabbi?! Oy vey such a Mensch he was during life, so gracious and so open-minded.

Peter King, R-New York. “Probably the most distressing thing or the most disturbing thing I heard was at least 80 to 90 people in the administration were aware of this proposed deal, and yet they couldn’t notify anyone in Congress.” So, White House aides just out of college knew about the decision to exchange five dangerous terrorist leaders for suspected deserter Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, but elected members of Congress were kept in the dark.
Super excited! A week from today I will be at Mall Of America!! And got tickets to the White House!!! Yay 😄😄 plus Chicago, New York and Boston. Hopefully see the Captain too!!
Will Texas go blue in 2016? After Tues. primary results, it is becoming very likely. Every Texas schoolchild learns with pride that their far-flung state comprises 254 counties. But did you know that most Texans live in just 10 of them? In 2012, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney evenly split the vote in those top 10. Obama won in the biggest five. The Republican base gets whiter, older and more male, while the big urban counties get more and more not. Battleground Texas is the political operation already working hard in the state to organize and motivate the Democratic vote. Featured prominently on its website is a quote from Dan Patrick, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor: “If we lose Texas, we never elect a Republican to the White House ever again because the electoral votes of New York, California and Texas make it mathematically impossible.”
Political humor. Karl Rove thinks we shouldn’t have Hillary Clinton in the White House because she fell and hit her head a couple years ago, spent three days in the hospital, and maybe she has brain damage. You know, I don’t recall the Republicans being this concerned with mental fitness during the years when Reagan was talking to house plants in the White House. Yesterday Chris Christie said he thinks it would be fun to run against Jeb Bush for the Republican presidential nomination. While Jeb Bush said it would be fun just to watch Chris Christie run. Today President Obama took his 1,001st flight aboard Air Force One. And they still made him take his shoes off at security. President Obama was touring New York sites in need of repair. He wants to spend money on the infrastructure. For example, the port authority needs fixing. And the Tappan Zee Bridge, where the renovation is already finishing up way ahead of schedule – like Obama’s second term Aba deya bedya bedaya, That's all folks!!!

Photograph: Mandel Ngan /AFP /Getty A plan by President Barack Obama to close a loophole which allows Americans to buy weapons such as machine guns, grenades and sawn-off shotguns without undergoing background checks is set to be delayed, due to intense opposition from the NRA and other anti-gun-control activists. An executive action announced by the White House last year said that all members of legally certified trusts buying or receiving federally regulated weapons would need to identify themselves by submitting photographs, fingerprints and a signed approval from a local law-enforcement chief to US authorities. Unlike individuals, such so-called “gun trusts” can currently take ownership of weapons regulated under the National Firearms Act (N . ...

Selma Burke, one of the 20th century’s most prolific artists and sculptors, went to the White House in 1943 to draw President Franklin Roosevelt. The semi-classical image she created showed the nation’s leader with his head held high, prominent cheekbones and a taut jaw. The likeness was intended for a new Recorder of Deeds building in Washington, D.C. but was later adopted for the dime. First, however, all of the Roosevelts had to approve it. Eleanor Roosevelt dropped by Burke’s New York studio on Jan. 10, 1945. While Mrs. Roosevelt liked the drawing, she felt the artist had made her husband look too young. But Ms. Burke replied that she wanted the presidential profile to be timeless. Born into poverty in Mooresville, North Carolina, Ms. Burke dug her fingers into riverbank clay as child. She was one of 10 children born to an Episcopal minister and a mother who did clerical work and lived to be 103. The family moved to Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia. Ms. Burke arrived in Harlem for that neighb . ...
George H.W. Bush wants Jeb to run for president: Neil Bush — the offspring of the forty-first president of the United States and the brother of number 43 — said during an interview with the news network that aired Thursday that the patriarch of the Texas political dynasty wants his second son, former governor of Florida Jeb Bush, to run in 2016. Jeb Bush, 61, has repeatedly been considered a potential Republican Party candidate during the next presidential election, and on Wednesday this week he said during an address in New York, "I'm thinking about running for president," according to CBS. His brother now says that the rest of the family has been getting involved in the debate as well. Speaking to CNN, Neil Bush explained that a discussion erupted recently when his mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, said there had been “enough Bushes” in the White House already. “We’re sitting in the waiting room of the hotel waiting to go to the Bush library event, and mom said that, we were all watchi ...
Nearly a dozen states have quietly signed onto a plan to effectively ditch the Electoral College and instead, award the White House to the candidate that wins the popular vote. The National Popular Vote agreement would take effect if states that represent 270 electoral votes all commit. New York has most recently joined the efforts, bringing the number of states to 10 plus the District of Columbia. Altogether, they represent 165 electoral votes.

CAN OBAMA SCARE SUPPORTERS TO THE POLLS? MSNBC host Al Sharpton is back at the White House today, this time for a Holy Week Prayer Breakfast with President Obama and dozens of faith leaders. Sharpton’s arrival comes just two days After Obama embraced the controversial activist and former FBI informant at a New York event hosted by the liberal broadcaster. Obama used the Sharpton event to accuse Republicans of trying to reverse the 1965 Voting Rights Act and intentionally suppress black voters with state laws requiring voters to show identification. “The real voter fraud is those that try to deny our rights by making arguments about voter fraud.” Obama compared the ID laws to the Jim Crow restrictions of the segregated South and cast himself as a modern-day Civil Rights leader. It may not wash with most voters, but will it be enough to frighten the Democratic base into action? -Fox News First
-Seven-strand diamond and sapphire pearl choker.- This piece of jewelry was recently called “the seven-strand pearl choker that stunned the world.” The large sapphire surrounded by two rows of diamonds was originally a brooch given to Diana as a wedding gift by the Queen Mother. Diana wore it as a brooch on only two occasions before she decided to turn it into a choker. Pearls, along with sapphires, were some of Diana’s favorite jewels. She wore this on countless occasions including the White House in November 1985 (when she danced with John Travolta), April 1986 (), and in New York in 1995 when she presented the CFDA Council of Fashion Award. She also wore it with her famous black revenge dress.
Well tonight officially ends our Spring Break. This has been a great week for my family. We've visited the White House, Capital Hill, The National Mall and all it's historic monuments and memorials along with various famous landmarks within surrounding cities. We also visited, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, Brooklyn, Harlem, and back to DC. And thanks to my "boo" I was able to meet Pastor Jamal Bryant . He knew how much I admired his teaching and preaching. So after service, Womble approached him and told him that he would like for him to meet me and his family. To our surprise, Dr. Bryant was elated to meet us and to take a pic with us as well. Great 7 day trip but there's no place like home :) :) Pastor Pastor Jamal Bryant
Today's Highlight in History: On March 29, 1951, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted in New York of conspiracy to commit espionage. (They were executed in June 1953.)

Brilliant take on Hillary Clinton. Let's see inside, not outside the surface of this political animal...college days, who was her mentor? And why is her thesis still locked away from the public eyes? And White Water money scandal aside, the reason she was not indicted for the financial was pale compared to the murder of an associate, was what? And lastly the race to become a New York resident and candidate after the White House shelter as First Lady was gone, again for White Water. Bad news fans and supporters...if Obama was the poster child for a failed social engineering program by the same party who took away all of the rights and benefits given to minorities after the Civil War by allowing a 2.0 student get a law degree with questionable attendance even for exams, and friends that would have destroyed by public trust or security clearance in minutes of inspection...

Beard envy? Surgery may help you get the scruffy Take a look at Hollywood’s leading men, the White House press secretary and the hipsters strolling through Brooklyn. It’s obvious beards are in, and the inability to grow thick warm fuzz can leave some men feeling left out in the cold. At least, that’s how it would seem from the reported uptick in facial hair transplants. “Whether they’re filling in a few gaps or doing a complete beard construction, New York City doctors who specialize in the procedure said they’re seeing a growing number of men paying as much as $7,000 to pump up their beards,” wrote Serena Solomon, who first reported on the trend on the neighborhood news site DNAinfo New York. But fear not, face-bald hipster men — you don’t have to live in the Big Apple to be able to sport a big beard. In Portland, Oregon — host of the 2014 World Beard and Moustache Championship — Dr. Steven Gabel can help you get the right mustache to savor sips of craft beer and artisan coffee. “ ...

Feng Shui: Do You Have the Energy for Business Success? When Donald Trump famously said "I don't believe in Feng Shui but I use it because it makes me money," he helped shine a spotlight on an ancient Chinese practice. However, he is not the only famous person or institution embracing Feng Shui – the White House, Virgin Airlines, The United Nations, Ford Motor Company, Charles Schwab, Citibank, Coca Cola, Disney Studios, Mariah Carey, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, and Oprah Winfrey, amongst others – are all embracing Feng Shui for success. The media has also taken it into the mainstream, with coverage regularly appearing on the BBC, and in the NYT and The Wall Street Journal."Trump reportedly even had Feng Shui principles applied to his Trump Tower building, having it placed facing Central Park in New York because he believed it would increase positive chi for prosperity and success" Even that old hit TV series, Big Brother, employed ideas borrowed from this ancient art.

The rehabilitation of Hillary Clinton By Washington Times (DC) February 15, 2014 6:50 am While Hillary Rodham Clinton has all but vanished, hitting the speaker's circuit at $200,000 a pop and bouncing between her two palatial mansions in New York and Washington, the press corps is working overtime to rebuild her tarnished reputation. First came The New York Times with a lengthy "investigative" piece of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi terrorist attack. The 7,500- word tome ignored the former secretary of state's role in the deaths of four Americans. What's more, the Times never mentioned Mrs. Clinton - not once - and concluded that the attack "was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam," a White House lie disproved just weeks after the attack. Then came the canard printed across the world that philanderer Bill Clinton had once had a torrid affair with model Elizabeth Hurley. (How does this help Hillary? Well, it wasn't the trailer park floozies Bubba usually frequented, and ...
I WONDER IF MASONIC INTERNATIONAL TREATY LAW AGREEMENTS AND PATENTS WERE PROTECTED? The next day, Dolley and a few servants scanned the horizon with spyglasses waiting for either Madison or the British Army to show up. As British troops gathered in the distance, Dolley decided to abandon the couple's personal belongings and instead saved a full-length portrait of former president George Washington from desecration. Dolley wrote to her sister on the night of August 23 of the difficulty involved in saving the painting. Since the portrait was screwed to the wall, she ordered the frame to be broken and the canvas pulled out and rolled up. Two unidentified "gentlemen from New York" hustled it away for safe-keeping. (Unbeknownst to Dolley the portrait was actually a copy of Gilbert Stuart's original). The task complete, Dolley wrote "and now, dear sister, I must leave this house, or the retreating army will make me a prisoner in it by filling up the road I am directed to take." Dolley left the White House and f ...
Will the United Nations and the Vatican Rule Jerusalem? Yes. The Beast and the False Prophet have an appointment with destiny. Here is a Biblical perspective. Tony Blair and Bill Clinton, in their days, strong-armed Israel into accepting the idea of a two-state solution to the Middle East crisis - Israel and Palestine. Clinton brought Yassar Arafat and Yitzak Rabin to the White House to celebrate a historic milestone in diplomacy. Never forget, however, that both Israel and Palestine are pawns in the hands of New World Order powerbrokers who are concretely determined to redefine the Middle East in terms that will both appease and quieten key players in the international community, not the least of which is New York, Brussels and Rome. Neither Israel nor the Palestinian Authority have the luxury of making sovereign determinations of their own destinies. Neither can escape the heavy hand of the New World Order. Ultimately, both governments will be forced to cooperate with the will of the international commu ...

MEMORIES The Hotel Safari, in Moyen-Chari, is memorable only for two facts: it leaves the lights on 24/7, so that I can, if I desire, work on my report at 2 AM, when I wake up a few hours after a highly satisfactory dinner of chicken and French fries. I opt for the boob tube instead. The TV has several channels: Arabic, French, Sarh, and one, only one, in my beloved mother tongue, the English language service of France 24. I have, for 40 years, been following the BBC World Service, with an overdose of Maggie Thatcher, Tony Blair, and now David Cameron.

Catholic Bishops push Boehner on immigration Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York sent a letter to Speaker Boehner on Thursday urging the House to pass immigration reform legislation by the end of the year. “The House has a responsibility to debate and attempt to resolve public policy issues that challenge the nation. Immigration is a challenge that has confounded our nation for years, with little action from our federally elected officials. It is a matter of great moral urgency that cannot wait any longer for action,” Dolan wrote in the letter. Dolan serves as president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which has significant pull on Capitol Hill. In the letter, Dolan wrote that the House should pass immigration reform “as soon as possible, ideally prior to the end of the calendar year." President Obama pressed GOP lawmakers in a statement from the White House last month to do the same, and said he’s open to accepting any immigration legislation as long as it includes a path to citizenship ...
Dear randall -- It's hard to believe it was ten years ago tonight. On this day a decade ago -- January 19, 2004 -- I gave one of the most famous speeches in the history of American politics. Or perhaps "infamous" would be more accurate. I'm guessing you might remember the climactic moment of that night, as I enthusiastically rallied my presidential campaign supporters in the aftermath of a disappointing finish in the Iowa Caucus: Not only are we going to New Hampshire, Tom Harkin, we're going to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico! And we're going to California and Texas and New York! And we're going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan, and then we're going to Washington, D.C., to take back the White House! YEEEAAARGGGH!!! While the "Dean Scream" became fodder for late night comedians, including a hilarious version by Dave Chappelle I still laugh about, I also feel very proud of the state-by-state preamble to my unforgettable rallying cry. Because, wh ...

Strange (to some) but true moments of history: Sept. 1, 1939: Hitler invades Poland, beginning World War II. Sept. 3, 1939: Britain and France declare war against Germany. Sept. 3, 1992: Thirty-nine state conference on disarmament approves treaty to ban chemical weapons. Sept. 4, 1918: American troops land at Archangel in North Russia, one year after the Russian Revolution, to “protect US interests.” Sept. 4, 1996: Scattered protests around the country greet the latest gratuitous US bombing of Iraq. About 100 gather at the Federal Building in Seattle; in Washington DC, eight are arrested for dumping buckets of rubble on the White House lawn. Sept. 5, 1914: Battle of Marne, first major battle of World War I. Ultimately, this battle alone would result in 300,000 dead or wounded. Sept. 8, 1916: Death of Walter Roberts, first of 73 British WWI conscientious objectors to die as a result of their prison treatment. Sept. 8, 1971: Beginning of the Attica (New York) Prison revolt. The interracial revolt was le ...
Strange Facts: Did you know that Robert Lincoln was thought to be present at the assassination of three Presidents. Not exact. Although alive at the time, Robert Todd Lincoln had refused his parents invitation to go to Ford's theater. He was actually at the White House at the time of the assassination, but rushed to his father's deathbed and was present at President Lincoln's death. At President James A. Garfield's invitation, Lincoln, current Secretary of War was at the Sixth Street Train Station in Washington, D.C., where the President was shot by Charles J. Guiteau on July 2, 1881 He was an eyewitness to the event. Although not present at the assassination, Robert Lincoln was at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, where President McKinley was shot on September 6, 1901. Later asked to run for president, he refused. Wonder why?

ELLEN ARTHUR The Obscurity of a Never-To-Be First Lady Ellen Arthur died before her husband Chester A. Arthur became United States President, by death and not by election. She was one of five wives who passed away before their widowered husbands reached the White House. The others were Martha Jefferson, Rachel Jackson, Harriet Van Buren and Alice Roosevelt. An only child with a long Episcopalian/Huguenot Dutch/English genealogy, Ellen grew up mainly in Washington D.C. In the nation's capital she got to know the fabled Dolley Madison. When she was twenty-two years old, she married New York attorney Chester Alan Arthur who was eight years her senior. Chester Arthur made his way up the ladder of New York State politics. His mother-in-law's wealth permitted a lifestyle far above his earnings. The Arthurs were the parents of three children, two sons and one daughter. The oldest son died when three years old. This death coupled with the European demise of Ellen's mother brought on a depression. Mrs. Arthur was ...
The article I just shared is about the social activist Eric *** and his project MILES. The Kirby Museum was the first one week inhabitant of this pop up on the lower east side of New York. Ending Sunday, it features an exhibition of a tiny percentage of scans of my grandfather's art, some biographical information and evening lectures. What I loved seeing the most was a busload of high school students from New Jersey making this temporary museum one of their stops on a Field Trip to New York. The NY Times article calls my grandfather an unsung hero, yet his art sings--always a choral masterpiece! I see him like James Cagney in the movie "Yankee Doodle Dandy" leaving the White House, commendation in hand,, tap dancing down the stairs glancing proudly at his artwork peppering the staircase wall, grabbing my grandmother and dancing in the streets of D.C. (no pun intended!). To see my grandfather's life and art as part of youth art curriculum in our public schools is just one of my goals! I know students ...
Democrats take New York and Virginia as Republicans win New Jersey 6 November 2013 Last updated at 15:01 Moderate Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has won a landslide re-election, a possible launch pad for a 2016 White House run. In Virginia, Terry McAuliffe - a key Hillary Clinton ally - narrowly beat a Republican to become governor of the pivotal presidential swing state. Bill de Blasio's thumping victory in New York makes him the city's first Democratic mayor-elect in two decades. Tuesday's results point the way to next year's US midterm elections. New Jersey's straight-talking Governor Christie brushed aside his Democratic challenger, State Senator Barbara Buono, by 60.5% to 38%, retaining a handy platform for a potential presidential bid. 'Working together' His ability to attract the support of Democrats, independents and minorities makes him a tantalising prospect for the ideologically split Republican Party ahead of 2016. "We stand here tonight showing that it is possible to put doing ...

It is my pleasure to welcome back the Chicago Blackhawks to the White House. (Applause.) We have some very proud Blackhawks fans here. A couple I want to point out in particular -- Senator *** Durbin from Illinois -- (applause) --and Congressman Mike Quigley, who actually still has an old man’s hockey game that he’s in all the time. (Laughter.) Any false teeth, Mike? Just a couple, all right. But this guy is a serious hockey player. So, Mike Quigley. (Applause.) Now, since I took office, we’ve hosted a lot of championship teams -- from Boston and New York; Pittsburgh and Miami. But since I’ve been President, only one team has brought a world championship to my hometown of Chicago. And now the Blackhawks have done it twice. (Applause.) Twice! Three years ago, the ‘Hawks won their first Stanley Cup in 49 years. And keep in mind, the Cubs have been wait ...

Found it! Ted Cruz, Goldman Sachs, Bush Relationship Submitted by cs2excalibur on Sat, 09/28/2013 - 03:18 in Politics, General + Law(s) California Look what I found on Wiki: Cruz and his wife, Heidi Cruz (née Nelson), have two daughters. Cruz met his wife while working on the George W. Bush presidential campaign of 2000. Cruz's wife is currently head of the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of Goldman, Sachs & Co. and previously worked in the White House for Condoleezza Rice and in New York as an investment banker.[95] It never sounded right from the start. I never liked Cruz. Cruz and his wife worked for the Bush In the 2000s. Another Bush term? All you keep hearing is that Ted Cruz was Solicitor General of Texas. Where he went before the Supreme Court. Not to mention that he was the FIRST Hispanic in Texas and youngest person to hold that title. Again we hear that Rubio is going to be the next first Hispanic to be President? Watch out for Ted Cruz, I think this guy is all about cli ...
ST PATRICK'S, AGRA: USA-NASA: DAY 8: WASHINGTON DC The day started with the WDC city tour with the first stop at the seat of power - The Capitol Hill. It was then the White House, followed by the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnamese War memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. The students were also taken around through various other landmark sites in Washington. After an Indian lunch they left for New Jersey. They have safely reached their hotel in New Jersey and had an Indian dinner before retiring to bed. Tomorrow's day is spent in New York.
House Republicans are beginning to wake up and smell the coffee. The effects of the partial government shutdown have varied widely, and in some cases, states and outsiders have stepped in. Officials said the Statue of Liberty would reopen on Sunday after New York agreed to pick up the $61,600 daily tab for running the site. South Dakota and corporate donors did the same for Mount Rushmore, beginning on Monday at a cost of $15,200 a day. One day after talks fizzled between the White House and House Republicans, the focus has now turned to the Senate. Republicans had begun seeking concessions on health care, and now their No. 1 issue is "to divert attention from the fools they've made of themselves on Obamacare." House Democrats lined up en masse to sign a legislative petition calling on Boehner to allow a vote on a bill to reopen the government, a step Boehner has repeatedly refused to take. In his Saturday address, Obama said, "Politics is a battle of ideas, but you advance those ideas through elections a ...
If U are really my friend Read this, Plz. The world dramatically changed on November 4, 2008, when a tolerance of hatred came through the door with the election of Senator Barack Obama as US President. Hatred, like evil, had always been part of man’s world, but never crowned by the White House. Before Obama’s rock star-like election, the hatred originating from public figures like Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who until responding about the death of Muammar Qaddafi, loved Obama: “We voted for our brother Barack, a beautiful human being with a sweet heart. Now he’s an assassin”, was tolerated. Even last week, Farrakhan and his security contingent held pedestrians on New York streets back after he attended a private dinner honouring UN visiting Iranian President Hassain Rouhani. Tolerance of hatred 101. Back in the 2008 presidential campaign, the mainstream media reeled with shock when Jeremiah Wright spewed the hate-filled words, “God *** America” at Trinity United Church of Ch ...
Roundup: UN General Debate over, with Iran, Syria issue stealing spotlight by William M. Reilly United Nations, Oct. 1 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations headquarters complex and its nearby traffic-choked neighborhood returned to near-normal on Tuesday as the 112 heads of state and government as well as high-ranking ministers relinquished the podium at the end of the UN General Assembly's General Debate. But the spotlight wasn't always on the podium as it veered to the margins, particularly last Friday when the UN Security Council unanimously approved sending a joint team with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons team into Syria to enumerate, locate and destroy such weapons and the machines that made them. The team arrived in Damascus Tuesday. Another example was when U.S. President Barack Obama telephoned from the White House to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani heading to the airport in New York, marking the first time in decades for such a high-level contact between the two countries.

Employment News 26 September 2013 US court issues summons against Manmohan Singh A Sikh rights group has secured summons against him from a US court in connection with the alleged human rights violations in the counter-insurgency operations in Punjab in the 1990s. The Sikh for Justice (SFJ), the New York-based rights body, is now planning to file an urgent leave "to effect alternative means of service" that would allow it to deliver the summons to the White House staff and members of Singh's security team when he is here. The 24-page complaint alleges that Singh as the Finance Minister in early 1990s approved and financed the practice of "cash rewards" to members of security forces for allegedly killing Sikhs through extra judicial means to curb militancy. The complaint also alleges that during his tenure as the Prime Minister beginning 2004, Singh actively shielded and protected the members of his political party who were allegedly involved in 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Obama, Clinton to launch healthcare campaign push Tuesday NEW YORK, Sept 23 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will turn to his unofficial "secretary of explaining stuff," former President Bill Clinton, on Tuesday to help with a final push to extol the benefits of U.S. healthcare reform before new insurance exchanges go live on Oct. 1. Obama, who is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, will meet with his most recent Democratic predecessor at the Clinton Global Initiative, a conference where the two men will talk about Obama's healthcare reform law, which Republicans continue to try to repeal. A White House official noted that the conversation will take place one week before the new exchanges open, which the White House says will allow millions of Americans who do not have insurance to sign up for plans that fit their budgets. The event also comes one day after the 20th anniversary of Clinton's call for healthcare reform in a speech to Congress. Clinton's effort to overhaul the U.S. healthc ...
Pelosi: Hillary Better Prepared to Be President than Obama, Bill Clinton Greg Richter Should she decide to run, Hillary Clinton would be better prepared to assume the presidency than the current office holder, Barack Obama was, or even her own husband, Bill Clinton, said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Pelosi was asked whether thinks Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016. Polls have shown her a favorite in the Democratic race by a large margin. "I don't know, but I know that if she does she will win, and when she becomes president she will be one of the best-equipped, best-prepared people to enter the White House in a very long time," Pelosi said. After serving eight years as First Lady to President Bill Clinton, Mrs. Clinton was elected senator from New York, then lost the 2008 presidential nomination to Obama, who appointed her secretary of State. "With all due respect to our president – and I think he's magnificent and wonderful and a bl ...
As It Makes Overtures to Iran, U.S. Strives to Reassure Israel. By Mark Landler and JODI RUDOREN; Mark Landler reported from Washington, and Jodi Rudoren from Jerusalem. Isabel Kershner contributed reporting from Jerusalem.. WASHINGTON -- As the Obama administration embarks on a highly visible diplomatic overture to Iran, White House officials are engaged in a quieter, behind-the-scenes effort to reassure Israel that they will not fall for the charms of Iran's new president by prematurely easing pressure on his government to curb its nuclear program. In private conversations with Israeli officials and a few public statements, administration officials have emphasized that they remain skeptical of Iran's intentions on the nuclear program, and that they will judge Iran by its actions, not by the conciliatory words of its newly elected president, Hassan Rouhani. In advance of his arrival in New York next week for a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, Mr. Rouhani has signaled a willingness to negot ...

This Day In Crime History June 22, 1977: First former U.S. Attorney General goes to prison John Newton Mitchell (September 15, 1913 – November 9, 1988) was the Attorney General of the United States from 1969 to 1972 under President Richard Nixon. Prior to that, he was a noted New York municipal bond lawyer, director of Nixon's 1968 presidential campaign, and one of Nixon's closest personal friends; after his tenure as Attorney General, he served as director of Nixon's 1972 presidential campaign. On February 21, 1975, Mitchell was found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury and sentenced to two and a half to eight years in prison for his role in the Watergate break-in and cover-up, which he dubbed the "White House horrors". The sentence was later reduced to one year to four years by United States District Court Judge John J. Sirica. Mitchell served only 19 months of his sentence, at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama, a minimum-security prison, before being released on par ...
Kraft says Putin took Super Bowl Ring-- Wonder if this move is covered by the Patriot Act. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft unveiled international intrigue and perhaps a covert cover-up on Thursday when he claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin actually stole his 2005 Super Bowl Ring. According to the New York Post’s Page 6 column, during Thursday night’s Carnegie Hall Medal of Excellence gala at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, Kraft contradicted his own previous take when he claimed that Putin took the ring. Although he wanted it back, the White House got involved – and Putin kept it. The article explains that Kraft said the incident involving the $25,000, diamond-encrusted ring took place in 2005 when several business executives were in St. Petersburg. “I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring,’ ” Kraft reportedly said. “I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walk ...
WASHINGTON — When President Obama’s guests arrive at the White House on Wednesday for a *** Pride reception — just days after New York became the largest state in the country to make same-sex marriage legal — they will no doubt be in a mood to celebrate. But for their host, who does not endorse same-sex marriage, it could be somewhat awkward. “I think they are trying to share the joy, which is genuine on their part, without changing his position,” Hilary Rosen, a prominent Democratic strategist, said of the White House. “I don’t think he can have it both ways here.” For months, Mr. Obama, who has in the past opposed same-sex marriage, has said his views are “evolving.” But last week’s vote in Albany has intensified pressure on the president to say where he stands, particularly after remarks he made at a Manhattan fund-raiser disappointed and confused many *** rights advocates, including some of his most ardent supporters. Some are now comparing Mr. Obama unfavorably with Gov. Andre ...
"Who would have wanted to go there?" asks Joey Martino. "It was a dive. The buildings were all run-down and it was filled with Cubans fresh off the boat and old people counting out their days. It was Nowheresville," Malnik demolished the restaurant and started from scratch. He filled the 30,000 square feet with European antiques, what he dubbed "a bit of Ludwig of Bavaria." It included stained glass from New York's Trinity Church, crystal chandeliers from the White House during the Madison administration, Tiffany lamps, and French paneling. A large oil painting of a reclining nude dominated the main dining room. Malnik bought a 12-foot Victorian fireplace, imposing sconces from Napoleon's Waterloo headquarters, German and Italian tapestries, and artworks by Dali, Le Douanier, and Rousseau. The new Forge also included an enormous wine cellar-300,000 bottles, some of the rarest vintages. An 1822 Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac was priced at $10,000 on the menu (today the bottle is worth $150,000). When t ...
Today on June 2, 1886 President Grover Cleveland married Frances Folsom in the White House. At 21, she remains our youngest First Lady; he was 49. John Philip Sousa and his Marine Corps Band played at the wedding. A very popular First Lady, she was the daughter of Cleveland's old law partner in Buffalo, New York. The second of 3 Presidents to marry while in office, Cleveland is the only one to have his wedding in the White House (the others are John Tyler and Woodrow Wilson). Rumors that Cleveland beat his young wife surfaced during his 1888 re-election campaign against Benjamin Harrison. Outraged, she issued a statement denouncing what she said were lies. Harrison ended up defeating Cleveland in that '88 race, but Frances was confident they'd return, telling a servant, "We are coming back exactly 4 years from today." And they did, as Cleveland handily defeated Harrison in their 1892 rematch. The Clevelands had 5 children. The last one, Francis Grover, died in 1995, 98 years after his father left the Whit ...

The Secret Service says a letter similar to ones sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been intercepted by a White House mail screening facility. The agency says the letter has been turned over to the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force for testing and investigation. Officials have said that two threatening letters postmarked in Louisiana and containing traces of the deadly poison ricin were sent to Bloomberg in New York and to his gun-control group in Washington.
4 July 2001: Add mine disaster witness statements. 4 July 2001 Source: British paper faces suit over Palast investigation Friday, June 29, 2001 Gregory Palast In retaliation for the investigative story about the finances of the George W. Bush campaign, Barrick Gold Mining of Canada has sued my paper, the Observer of London, for libel. The company, which hired the elder Bush after his leaving the White House, is charging the newspaper with libel for quoting an Amnesty International report, which alleged that 50 miners might have been buried alive in Tanzania by a company now owned by Barrick. The company has also demanded the Observer and its parent, Guardian Newspapers, force me to remove the article from my US website, a frightening extension of Britain’s punitive libel laws into the World Wide Web. The company has also issued legal threats against Tanzanian human rights lawyer Tundu Lissu, one of the Observer’s independent sources and an investigator of the mine-site allegations. The attack by Barri ...
Ouch! "LBN-COMMENTARY By Maureen Dowd: I went to New York last week to cover the TV presentations for the new season, shows like “Scandal,” “Shark Tank” and a faltering “American Idol.” I may as well have stayed here. You know that the faltering American Idol in the White House must be reeling in this scandalous spring. No Drama Obama is immersed in drama so over the top it could have been scripted by Shonda Rhimes and Karl Rove. Just four months after his second inauguration, the president is buffeted by gushing investigations, smug and deranged Republicans, and cat-who-ate-the-canary conspiracists. The man who promised in 2008 to make government cool again is instead batting away charges that he has made government “Nixonian” again." -- LBN Alert

* NOW WE CANNOT GO ON TOURS...OF OUR OWN HOUSE * Visitors to the nation's capital looking for a White House public tour are out of luck starting this weekend, courtesy of what the Secret Service says is its own decision to deal with the sequester cuts. But while the agency said it needed to pull officers off the tours for more pressing assignments, the budget ax didn't swing early or deep enough to curtail a host of recent Secret Service-chaperoned trips like President Obama's much-discussed Florida golf outing with Tiger Woods, First Lady Michelle Obama's high-profile multi-city media appearances, or even daughter Malia Obama's New York dinner outing with a group of teenage friends. Obama's pricey golf outings have been a particular target for Republicans who see them as examples of what they say are the administration's rather selective concerns with running up the tab of Secret Service resources. ::: On March 5, Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert filed an amendment to a House resolution that would prohibit fed . ...

The White House and the US Capitol belong to the American people. What kind of autocrat believes he can tell the American people to get out? This is a Constitutional Republic and those in elected positions serve at the behest of the electorate. America is not a monarchy and the White House is not Versailles. We can give the Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt $250M from taxpayers but tell the American people they cannot visit their symbols of liberty, freedom, and democracy?

Hugo Chávez (1954-2013) died as he lived the past 15 years: The democratically-elected president of Venezuela. From the April 16, 2002, Village Voice "Press Clips" column by Cynthia Cotts: “…When the White House called Chávez's fall a victory for democracy, (New York) Times editors must have thought they had an excuse to downplay the unconstitutional moves of interim president Pedro Carmona. From (Times correspondent Juan) Forero's perspective, dissent was minimal, with only Cuba calling the resignation a coup. In the same edition, the Times ran a fluffy Carmona profile and an editorial saluting Venezuela for independently replacing a ‘ruinous demagogue’ with a ‘respected business leader.’ In a news analysis, Larry Rohter explained why the transition was not technically a coup. “Even as the Times was propping up Carmona, Narconews.com was posting a portrait of a blindfolded and gagged Simón Bolívar, the 19th-century hero who liberated Venezuela from Spain.

Not only was she the First Lady from 1993 till 2001, she was also the first woman to be elected as the US Senator from the state of New York and went on to become the Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013! A lawyer by profession, she has led numerous battles on behalf of victims of child abuse and has been the voice of woman empowerment since her inception in the White House! Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner: Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, famously know as CFK, is the current president of Argentina and the wife of the late former president Néstor Kirchner. Other than leading South America’s second largest country, CFK is known in the global political circuit to nurture the country to the position it is today through a charade of economic slumps and other issues, bringing about a positive change with he ...
Everyone knows (or should) that the British attack on Baltimore's Fort Mchenry was the turning point in the War of 1812 (we were getting our *** kicked before that) was the battle that inspired the composition of the 1812 Overture, the poem by Francis Scott Key that eventually became National Anthem, etc. But did you know that battle actually happened in 1814? We seem to think we had the Revolution and then skipped right up to the Civil War with only minor skirmishes in 1812 and 1838 (the Mexican-American War). But the truth is that the British whooped our *** from 1812-1814. They occupied New York, they captured Washington DC, etc. And when they did capture Washington DC, they burned the Capitol Building, the White House, the Library of Congress, etc., to the ground. Well, almost to the ground because the buildings only mostly collapsed as a freak, unexpected, way out of season thunder storm rolled in right in time. Almost all of New England was occupied by British forces that marched down fr ...
I'm With Woodward, With Good Reason. Many deriding the implication of "threat" tossed at Bob Woodward from White House economic adviser Gene Sperling have never walked in Woodward's shoes--and this includes jibes from those who cover stories from the safety of their computer screens. As a former reporter for major daily new services in Washington and New York, I know exactly what Gene Sperling was implying: "Cross us and we'll make your life miserable." It's a threat to cut off sources, not only at the White House, but across the entire federal establishment. It's a form of thuggery practiced by every Administration. As a beat reporter in the 60s and 70s, I received Sterling-styled threats on a regular basis. Journalists take them seriously and find ways to overcome them. One such event in my career illustrates the point. In the mid-1960s, while covering the Pentagon, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara called a group of us into his office to discuss, "off the record," the Administration's intention to . ...
States petition to secede from union. : Secessionist leader: Texas should separate from Marxist states They don't want to take their country back. They just want to leave it behind. As the dust settles in the wake of President Obama's decisive reelection last Tuesday, the White House petition website has been flooded by a series of secession requests, with malcontents from New Jersey to North Dakota submitting petitions to allow their states to withdraw from the union. Most of the petitions submitted thus far have come from solidly conservative states, including most of the Deep South and reliably separatist Texas. But a handful come from the heart of blue America - relatively progressive enclaves like Oregon and New York. All told, petitions have been filed on behalf of 20 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. Many of th ...
The President presents an award at the Golden Globes, and the First Lady presents an award at the Oscars. During the election, they attended campaign fundraisers thrown by Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Wintour, George Clooney, Ellen DeGeneres, Donna Mills, Sharon Stone and a Hollywood producer. At the White House, they regularly entertain "good friends" Beyonce and Jay-Z, George Clooney, Barbara Streisand and David Geffen. He, Michelle and their daughters have gone skiing in Vail and Aspen, had vacations at Palm Springs, Martha's Vineyard, Hawaii, and South Africa. He and Michelle flew to New York for a "Date Night." Am I the only one that finds that such frequent in-your-face fraternization with Hollywood celebrities and luxury vacations cheapens the office of the President and smells a bit of elitism - especially at a time when the middle-class of America is struggling so bad in the recession? How are we to feel that he feels our pain and understands our problems, when he so blatantly hob-knobs with th ...
If you want a political career, never let defeat stop you. Instead, learn from defeat and apply the lessons to your next campaign. Some of the most successful politicians have suffered stinging defeats along the way. As AL Smith once said, let’s look at the record: •Abraham Lincoln lost his first election for the Illinois State legislature. Before he won the presidency in 1860, he suffered two U.S. Senate defeats. •Franklin Roosevelt lost the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate in New York by a landslide in 1914 and six years later lost the vice presidency by a landslide while running on the ticket headed by Gov. James Cox of Ohio. Shortly thereafter, he contracted polio and was paralyzed from the waist down. But that didn’t keep him from rebuilding his political career. In 1928, he was elected governor of New York and in 1932, president. He won re-election to the White House an unprecedented three times. •After a meteoric six-year rise from young veteran to member of Congress to U.S. sena ...
Some off-the-wall stuff. Happy President's Day! Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) is the only U.S. president who was also a licensed bartender. He was co-owner of Berry and Lincoln, a saloon in Springfield, Illinois. The only president to be unanimously elected was George Washington (1732-1799). He also refused to accept his presidential salary, which was $25,000 a year. Grover Cleveland was the only president in history to hold the job of a hangman. He was once the sheriff of Erie County, New York, and twice had to spring the trap at a hanging. The “S” in Harry S Truman doesn’t stand for anything; therefore, there is no period after his middle initial. Twenty-ninth president Warren Gamaliel Harding (1865-1923) repeatedly made love to a young girl, Nan Britton, in a White House closet. On one occasion, Secret Service agents had to stop his wife from beating down the closet door. After President Bush Sr. vomited on the Japanese Prime Minister, a new word entered the Japanese language. Bushusuru means “t ...

What Are the Most Famous Lies? ►Bill Clinton In 1998, when former President Bill Clinton denied his affair with Monica Lewinsky, a 22-year-old White House intern, by saying, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman," his words went down in history as one of the most famous lies ever told. Clinton went on to be impeached by the House of Representatives for lying about the affair under oath. ►Rosie Ruiz Rosie Ruiz's victory as the first female winner of the Boston Marathon was short lived. It was discovered that she'd only run the last mile of this arduous race. Her sweat-free appearance was a bit of a giveaway.

What have we come to? The following is from David McCullough's "Truman" (page 578). Note who was responsible for food in the White House. Now, how much did that recent Pizza Party in New York cost the American taxpayer? "Truman's salary in his last years in the Senate, plus what Bess had earned, came to $14,500. As Vice President, his pay was $20,000; as President, it was $75,000. But nearly half of that would go to taxes, and while the government paid for the White House servants, Bess had to pay for their food, plus all meals for the family and guests. In Roosevelt's time, monthly food bills alone sometimes reached $7,000. Bess had been able to cut that back to about $2,000. In their twelve years in the White House the Roosevelts had never lived within the President's salary, but the Trumans had no family fortune to fall back on. Margaret would later describe her mother as a chronic penny pincher, of necessity. Still, she was able to save very little year to year. After expenses and taxes on his $75,00 ...
Frederick Douglass (1817 - 1895) Born a slave as Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey in Maryland in 1817, he escaped by sea to New York City in 1838 to seek his freedom, changing his name to Douglass. He became well known as an abolitionist, editor, orator, author, statesman, and reformer. After publishing his autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, he fled to England in 1845 to avoid capture, returning in 1847 when a group of British female abolitionists paid $711.86 to buy him his freedom. Douglass lived and worked in Rochester, New York for most of his public career. His home became an important 'station' on the Underground Railroad. During the Civil War, he actively recruited Black soldiers for the Union side. Lincoln twice invited Douglass to the White House to advise him on issues pertaining to enslaved Africans. Douglass strongly encouraged Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. Douglass died in 1895.
Wow! What a full and fun evening Monday night at Trivia at Ace Hotel in the Amigo Room. A packed house and lots of great people with topics primarily on Mardi Gras, Valentine’s, Grammys, Presidents (first president to live in the White House, president to serve two nonconsecutive terms).

Cardinal Dolan wrote: The Holy Father brought the tender heart of a pastor, the incisive mind of a scholar and the confidence of a soul united with His God in all he did. His resignation is but another sign of his great care for the Church. We are sad that he will be resigning but grateful for his eight years of selfless leadership as successor of St. Peter. Though 78 when he elected pope in 2005, he set out to meet his people – and they were of all faiths – all over the world. He visited the religiously threatened – Jews, Muslims and Christians in the war-torn Middle East, the desperately poor in Africa, and the world’s youth gathered to meet him in Australia, Germany, Spain and Brazil. He delighted our beloved United States of America when he visited Washington and New York in 2008. As a favored statesman he greeted notables at the White House. As a spiritual leader he led the Catholic community in prayer at Nationals Park, Yankee Stadium and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. As a pastor feeling pain i ...
Breaking from Newsmax.com Quinnipiac: Hillary More Popular Than Obama Hillary Clinton left the U.S. State Department more popular than President Barack Obama, who defeated her in 2008 for their party’s nomination and later chose her as chief diplomat, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. Clinton, a former First Lady and U.S. senator from New York, received a 61 percent favorability rating among registered voters, with 34 percent viewing her unfavorably. That compared to 51 percent favorable and 46 percent unfavorable for Obama. The poll also showed that Clinton, a potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, was viewed more favorably than others who may seek the White House, including Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the 2012 Republican vice-presidential nominee. Clinton, 65, is “easily the most popular actor on the American political stage today,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac polling institute.

notes that 200 years ago today, former U.S. Sen. John Armstrong of New York began serving as President James Madison's Secretary of War. Armstrong's career illustrates the importance of vetting such high-level appointments carefully. During the Revolutionary War, Armstrong was one of the ringleaders of the "Newburgh Conspiracy" against the Continental Congress. He was such a polarizing choice for what would now be called Secretary of Defense in 1813 that senators of his own political faction refused to confirm his nomination, and he barely squeaked through. He proved to possess poor judgment, typified by his belief that British forces would never threaten the nation's capital. After they burned the White House, President Madison finally demanded his resignation. The Senate should always take its "advise and consent" power seriously.

Why isn't gun control working in Chicago?...January 30, 2013 at 6:15 pm One week ago, 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton performed with her high school band here in Washington at President Obama's inauguration. In addition to being a majorette, Pendleton was also an honor student and volleyball player who dreamed of visiting Paris this summer. On Tuesday, she was shot dead in a public park two blocks from her high school and less than a mile from Obama's Kenwood home in Chicago. The shooting prompted White House spokesman Jay Carney to remark, "If we can save even one child's life, we have an obligation to try when it comes to the scourge of gun violence." Pendleton was the 44th homicide victim in Chicago so far this year. That puts Chicago on pace to surpass last year's total of more than 500 murders. Chicago homicides have picked up dramatically in recent years and now outnumber killings in New York, which has three times Chicago's population. Meanwhile, in the Big Apple, fewer people were killed in 2012 than ...
Dr. Boyce: 7 Things that Cornel West and Martin Luther King Jr. Have in Common January 26, 2013 | Filed under: Commentary,dr boyce,News | Posted by: bowatkin . by Dr. Boyce Watkins When President Obama was inaugurated for the first time back in 2009, I was speaking at a large black church in New York. Of course we were all bubbling with pride over the election, which the president won with flying colors. Barackomania was in the air that day, and I shared in the excitement over seeing our president and his beautiful family take their first steps into the White House. But while some of us were enthusiastic about this new opportunity, some folks thought that we’d experienced Juneteenth all over again. I remember the choir director of the church changing the words of the song “We Shall Overcome,” to “We HAVE Overcome,” which the congregation sang with joy. That’s when I knew our community was in serious trouble, since the success of one man has almost nothing to do with the plight of 40 milli ...

At the risk of alienating more Friends, I am stating that under no circumstances will I support or vote for Hillary Clinton for president. In my opinion, she should never have been elected U.S. Senator from New York. The reason for my decision is a name from twenty years ago which most people have forgotten: Vince Foster. To refresh your memories, Vince Foster was the White House Counsel, of Bill and Hillary’s lawyer. He was a boyhood friend of Bill’s, and a law partner with Hillary with the Rose Law Firm. He was personal friends to both. On July 20, 1993, he was found dead in a small Virginia park. Independent investigations and testimony prove that he was murdered. However, there is ample evidence that before the body was found the White House had already taken control of a sloppy coverup that purported to show Foster commited suicide. There has been evidence and testimony that the chiefs of state to Bill and Hillary, Mack McLarty and Evelyn S. Lieberman, respectively, personally moved or ordere ...
Israel and the Surrender of the West by Shelby Steele The Wall Street Journal, June 21, 2010 The most interesting voice in all the fallout surrounding the Gaza flotilla incident is that sanctimonious and meddling voice known as "world opinion." At every turn "world opinion," like a school marm, takes offense and condemns Israel for yet another infraction of the world's moral sensibility. And this voice has achieved an international political legitimacy so that even the silliest condemnation of Israel is an opportunity for self-congratulation. Rock bands now find moral imprimatur in canceling their summer tour stops in Israel (Elvis Costello, the Pixies, the Gorillaz, the Klaxons). A demonstrator at an anti-Israel rally in New York carries a sign depicting the skull and crossbones drawn over the word "Israel." White House correspondent Helen Thomas, in one of the ugliest incarnations of this voice, calls on Jews to move back to Poland. And of course the United Nations and other international organizations ...

U.S History is a joke. Bunch of monetary opportunists attacking people for their sexual orientations and loving of "other races", when we are all the same race. There is an old Pink Panther movie by Blake Edwards which mocks Gerald Ford and Kissinger for being obsessed with the NFL. And when Inspector Dreyfuss blocks their White House session of watching the football game to declare on TV that he would erase the UN in New York, Gerald Ford says after: "Call the CIA and FBI, find out who won the game." Blake Edwards like Stanley Kubrick were 2 men obsessed with power, and you can find traces of the truth in their work which are as poignant as the best anti-american slurs Hunter S. Thompson came up with. Part of the generation in America after World War 2 which saw their nation becoming a nazi state just like all of Europe before it.
Texas leaders take stand against gun control plan Originally published January 16, 2013 at 11:06 P.M., updated January 16, 2013 at 11:40 P.M. AUSTIN (AP) - A state lawmaker pushing a bill to defy federal gun laws. A governor disgusted by what he calls exploitation of the school mass shooting in Connecticut. An Attorney General paying for ads inviting New York gun-lovers appalled by their state's new, toughest-in-America firearms restrictions to move here. Welcome to Texas, where top leaders declared Wednesday that federal gun control measures unveiled by President Barack Obama are most unwelcome. "As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be," said Gov. Rick Perry, who questioned Obama's authority to limit gun rights under the Second Amendment. "Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help." Perry's swift and strong-worded response came after a White House ceremony where Obama unveiled plans to press a reluctant Cong ...

White House and New York politicians declare war on the Second Amendment In advance of this extraordinary move, Mr. Biden met Thursday with representatives from gun owners’ groups, including the National Rifle Association and National Shooting Sports Foundation. NRA President David Keene told The Washington Times, “We were very disappointed, though not surprised, that the meeting was just what we suspected it would be: a perfunctory meeting with groups like the NRA, designed simply so the Vice President could say, ‘I met with them.’” The White House press pool was denied any access to the meeting. Earlier in the day, the media was allowed in the room to hear the veep address hunting and shooting groups, where he called for “totally universal background checks, including private sales,” a ban on “high-capacity” magazines, and funding for research into “what kind of weapons are used most to kill people.” There’s no need to waste taxpayer money on such a study as the FBI already track ...

Talk Back: Why the secrecy surrounding guns? All the major players on the gun issue -- including the NRA -- are showing up at the task force meeting with Vice President Joe Biden. Except for Wal-Mart, a major gun retailer. It seems they're.busy. Wal-Mart told us: "We take the sale of firearms very seriously and are committed to the responsible sale of firearms. We were invited to attend the meeting on Thursday and we had scheduling conflicts." Wal-Mart insists they're not dissing the White House. They say they're open to conversations on the topic. Yet we tried to talk to them about how many guns they sell. No dice. They won't tell us. Why? They won't say. There's one thing we do know -- most gun owners do not like publicity. We learned this -- after New York's Journal News was blasted for publishing lists of gun permit owners in the area. Gun-rights advocates pounced. Ann Coulter told FOX's Sean Hannity: "If we're producing lists of gun permit owners, I want them for Manhattan. I want to know how many .. ...

Barack Obama is the first president in more than five decades to win at least 51 percent of the national popular vote twice, according to a revised vote count in New York eight weeks after the Nov. 6 election. State election officials submitted a final tally on Dec. 31 that added about 400,000 votes, most of them from provisional ballots in the Democratic stronghold of New York City that were counted late in part because of complications caused by Hurricane Sandy. The president nationally won 65.9 million votes — or 51.1 percent — against Republican challenger Mitt Romney, who took 60.9 million votes and 47.2 percent of the total cast, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Obama is the first president to achieve the 51 percent mark in two elections since Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower, who did it in 1952 and 1956, and the first Democrat to do so since Franklin D. Roosevelt, who won four consecutive White House races. Roosevelt received 53.4 percent of the vote — his lowest — in his last race i ...
Here we are. get the tissue... From Circuit Judge Kevin J. Carroll’s Order: This Court notes that President Obama lives in the White House. He flies on Air Force One. He has apeared before Congress, delivered States of the Union addresses, and meets with Congressional leaders on a regular bais. He has appointed countless ambassadors to represent the interests of the United States throughout the world. President Obama’s recent appointment of The Honorable Mark Walker, formerly a member of this Court, has been confirmed by the United States Senates. Judge Walker has been sworn in as a United States District Court Judge and currently works at the Federal Courthouse down the street. The Electoral College has recently done its work and elected Mr. Obama to be President once again. As this matter has come before the Court at this time of year it seems only appropriate to paraphrase the ruling rendered by the fictional Judge Henry X. Harper from New York in open court in the classic holiday file ‘Miracle o ...

As part of the Fiscal Cliff deal the White House insisted on extending the following tax credits: NASCAR $78 million; Starkist Tuna $62 million; a rum-making company $222 million; Hollywood $430 million; General Electric, large subsidies for green energy and offshore tax havens; Goldman Sachs, a tax credit to build a new building in downtown New York; Citi, a subsidy for offshore tax havens. Obama argues the wealthy need to pay their fair share and yet extends corporate welfare. Hypocrisy at its finest!

Jersey City was one of the areas seriously impacted by Hurricane Sandy and for more than two weeks we visited countless residents whose homes or businesses were destroyed. Many of our people are still picking up the pieces from what is one of the worst natural disasters our nation has ever witnessed. During the height of the storm, President Obama called me and pledged the support of the federal government. On two occasions, top federal officials visited Jersey City to tour the devastation. We know the White House wants to assist us, but we need the Congress, specifically the House of Representatives, to do the right thing and vote to send aid to those communities affected by Hurricane Sandy. I applaud Governor Chris Christie and the New Jersey and New York delegation for having the leadership to push this matter forward and will continue to fight to ensure that the much-needed aid reaches those communities, like Jersey City, who need it most.

Enlarge Photo Reuters/Reuters - The skyline of Lower Manhattan in New York is seen behind the shipping docks in Newark, New Jersey, December 27, 2012. REUTERS/Gary Hershorn (Reuters) - The union representing nearly 15,000 dockworkers at U.S. Atlantic and Gulf Coast seaports stretching from Boston to Corpus Christi, Texas, reached a tentative contract deal with shipping companies on Friday, averting a strike that threatened to wreak havoc on the U.S. economy. The International Longshoremen's Association (ILA) and the U.S. Maritime Alliance clinched a deal in federally-mediated talks less than two days before a strike deadline set by the union to coincide with expiration of the contract on Sunday. The threatened walkout would have brought container cargo operations to a halt at 15 ports along the Eastern seaboard and Gulf Coast, marking the first such work stoppage in 35 years.

Obama supports plans to reintroduce assault-weapons ban ( Agencies) : New York , Dec .19: US President Barack Obama has given his backing to efforts to reinstate an assault-weapons ban. The 10 year restrictions expired in 2004. But following the Connecticut school massacre, there are calls for it to be renewed. “Well, the president is actively supportive of, for example, Senator Feinstein’s stated intent to revive a piece of legislation that would reinstate the assault weapons ban,” said White House spokesman Jay Carner. “And there are other elements of gun law legislation — gun legislation that — that he could support. People have talked about high capacity gun ammunition clips, for example, and that is something certainly that he would be interested in looking at.” Dozens of gun control activists marched on the Washington headquarters of the National Rifle Association on Monday evening. One of the most powerful lobbies in the capital, the NRA campaigns to uphold the Second Amendment of the ...

Kudos to Mayor Bloomberg of New York, co-chair of Mayors Against Illegal Guns: “With all the carnage from gun violence in our country, it’s still almost impossible to believe that a mass shooting in a kindergarten class could happen. It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their A,B,Cs are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Today, many of them were five-year olds. President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a ...
I'm 19 and everyday I think to myself if I wasn't "illegal" I'd be somebody right now. I came here when I was 1 year old. I didn't even know I was illegal till I was in fifth grade. All I spoke was English and was in gifted and talented classes. In fifth grade I went to a charter school where I worked my butt off to earn a trip to Washington D.C and I did. I went to the Smithsonian and the capital, Arlington Cemetery, I even met a senator who met and was inspired by Martin Luther King. The day came where I would visit the White House, and it was the happiest day of short life as a fifth grader. I was held back as my teacher explained to me that I wasn't allowed in because I was different. And I cried on the steps outside of the building. I called my mom and she told me I was illegal. But that didn't stop me. I've been to Philadelphia, California, New York, Utah, Chicago. All with my intelligence. I went to college in high school because I finished early. I participated in plays because I love acting, and ...

Frack Fight 2012 By Ellen Cantarow New York isn't just another state. Its largest city is the world's financial capital. Six of its former governors have gone on to the presidency and Governor Andrew Cuomo seems to have his sights set on a run for the White House, possibly in 2016. It also has a history of movements, from abolition and women's suffrage in the nineteenth century to Occupy in the twenty-first. Its environmental campaigns have included the watershed Storm King Mountain case, in which activists defeated Con Edison's plan to carve a giant facility into the face of that Hudson River landmark. The decision established the right of anyone to litigate on behalf of the environment. Today, that activist legacy is evident in a grassroots insurgency in upstate New York, a struggle by ordinary Americans to protect what remains of their democracy and the Earth's fragile environment from giant corporations intent on wrecking both. On one side stands New York's anti-fracking community; on the other, th .. ...
Jarrett pushed Obama to take on the Catholic Church over contraception, arguing that it would appeal to single women (she was right) and that religious freedom isn't important (she was wrong). Bill Daley, who had replaced Rahm Emmanuel as chief of staff, argued against Obama pushing contraception on the Church and invited Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan of New York to meet with a displeased Obama, who didn't appreciate hearing from the Church. Daley is now out of the White House.

Recognise Rohingyas: Obama to Myanmar Mon, Nov 19th, 2012 11:59 pm BdST New York, Nov 19 (bdnews24.com)—US President Barak Obama on Tuesday urged Myanmar to give citizenship to hundreds of thousands of stateless Rohingyas in the west of the country where ethnic bloodshed has caused massive displacement. After Obama's landmark visit to the reclusive South-East Asian nation, the White House in a press briefing said the Myanmar government responded positively to the issue. Although the Royingyas in Myanmar claim themselves as aborigines, they are yet to get state recognition. The statement came on board Air Force One, the US President's private jet, as he was going to Cambodia after the six-hour Myanmar trip. The first serving US President to visit Myanmar, Obama gave a speech at Rangoon University where he urged Burmese people to accept Rohingyas after recent sectarian violence that killed hundreds of people and left tens of thousands homeless. Myanmar's estimated 800,000 Rohingyas, a Muslim minority, are ...

Petraeus Testifies to Lawmakers in DC and Changes his Story by Admin by Ezra Van Auken The newly retired US general and former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, David Petraeus made his rounds in front of Congress last week. The closed-door session Friday morning was concentrated on the events that took place in Benghazi, Libya this past September 11th. Due to little words coming out of Washington about the Benghazi attack, many Americans have brought it into their own hands and have questioned what little has been said. Within days and hours of the attack in Libya on the US consulate, the White House, State Department and CIA officials including Petraeus all alluded and pointed to the video referred to as “Innocence of Muslims” an anti-Islamic propaganda film. Since the claim that a propaganda film sparked Islamists to attack a consulate, US officials have slowly moved away from the idea but doing so quietly. One of the lawmakers who attended the hearing, Peter King of New York, explained t ...

AJC Thanks President Obama for “Moral Clarity” in Steadfast Support for Israel November 18, 2012 -- New York -- In a letter delivered to the White House last night, AJC expressed profound appreciation for President Obama’s “steadfast support for Israel during the current crisis.” AJC President Robert Elman and Executive Director David Harris praised the president’s “moral clarity about the instigators of this crisis and the responsibility of the Israeli government to defend its citizens.” Hamas, the Palestinian terror organization that controls Gaza, has unleashed waves of rockets attacks on Israel, forcing many Israelis to stay within 15 seconds of bomb shelters. Security cooperation between the United States and Israel has reached a new level under the Obama Administration, wrote the AJC leaders. One notable example is the Iron Dome, a sophisticated anti-missile system that has intercepted and destroyed hundreds of rockets fired by Hamas. Without Iron Dome, Israeli casualties would be mu ...
The scene: Newsnight in Washington last night Cast: Paxman, Eleanor Clift (longtime Newsweek columnist), some rabble rousing Republican and Martin Amis (now resident in New York) Paxman’s question to Amis: what do you think a Republican in the White House would mean for America? Amis: It means that we would have a man as leader of the free world who believes that when Jesus returns to earth, he would split his time between Jerusalem and Salt Lake City. Cue for everyone except grumpy GOP to fall about laughing. Classic moment!
Presidential Tidbits & Trivia: 1) PAULINE: The William Howard Taft family kept a cow. The cow was a milk cow. The cow grazed on the White House lawn. The cow's name was Pauline Wayne. 2) OK, MARTIN: Martin Van Buren's nickname was Old Kinderhook, a reference to his hometown, Kinderhook, New York. O.K., the abbreviation of his nickname, was used as a Van Buren political slogan. Many experts in that kind of thing agree this is how the term originated. 3) STOVE IN: Until Millard Fillmore became President in 1850, all White House cooking had been done over open fireplaces. Clearly a man who did not like all his food charcoal broiled, Fillmore purchased a cast-iron stove. Since no list of instructions was provided, even though the stove worked, the cook wouldn't. Fillmore solved the crisis of the kitchen by going to the U.S. Patent Office, studying a model of the stove, and personally instruction the cook in the mysteries of its operation.
Couldn't share this normally for some reason. randy roberts potts 6 hours ago. Tomorrow I will vote for the first President of these United States to openly declare that I am an equal citizen deserving of equal rights under the law. He's a man who values the bond my husband and I made in New York, who values the stability marriage can provide for the three children we are raising under our roof, who believes that our right to visit each other in the hospital is a right and not a benefit, who values our service in the military, in the schools, as firemen, as police officers, enough to say that we deserve to pass on what we leave behind to the person we love the most. I am proud to vote for Barack Hussein Obama, the man with the "funny" name, the man with the darkest shade of skin ever to sit in the White House, a man who chose to be a community organizer on the "bad" side of town instead of cashing in on his degree from Harvard. The argument that a *** man, a bi woman, a transgendered person could vote Rep ...

David Alelrod For those of you who may not know who David Axelrod is - he is the power in the background in the current White House "The next time you see David Axelrod on TV or listen to him on a radio talk show defending Obama, remember who he is – and why he’s a clear and present danger to our freedoms. Obama adviser Axelrod grew up in a home with a mother who worked for PM – a paper used by Stalinists in New York to push the political agenda of the U.S.S.R. In the mid-1970s, Axelrod was noticed by David Canter and Don Rose. Canter’s father was a lifelong Communist who was invited to visit the Soviet Union in 1932. Rose was a member of the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam – a Communist front group – and worked for the Students for a Democratic Society – another Communist organization. Canter and Rose mentored Axelrod to become a ruthless political operative – but they first helped him become a political writer for the Chicago Tribune – a move that launched his ...
This Day in History Nov 2, 1948 Truman defeats Dewey In the greatest upset in presidential election history, Democratic incumbent Harry S. Truman defeats his Republican challenger, Governor Thomas E. Dewey of New York, by just over two million popular votes. In the days preceding the vote, political analysts and polls were so behind Dewey that on election night, long before all the votes were counted, the Chicago Tribune published an early edition with the banner headline "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN." Harry Truman was thrust into the presidency by Franklin D. Roosevelt's death in 1945. Approaching the 1948 presidential election, he seemed to stand a slim chance of retaining the White House. Despite his effective leadership at the end of World War II and sound vision in the confused postwar world, many voters still viewed Truman as an ineffectual shadow of his four-term predecessor. He also antagonized Southern Democrats with his Civil Rights initiatives. Most were sure that Dewey would take the White House. In ...

poor romney! October 30, 2012 Romney Has a Christie Problem and a FEMA Problem by John Cassidy New \Yorker.com "On the Democratic side, the devastation that Sandy has wreaked more than justifies President Obama’s decision to return to Washington on Sunday and to declare a pre-disaster state of emergency in a number of states. On Tuesday morning, he followed up these edicts by signing major disaster declarations for New York and New Jersey, which will make it easier for them to access federal assistance. First thing this morning, the White House let it be known that the President had been monitoring the storm’s progress throughout the night, and that he had spoken to a number of local officials, including Governor Cuomo, Mayor Bloomberg, and Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey. "Appearing on the networks this morning, Christie, for the third day in a row, heaped praise on Obama’s handling of the storm. “The President has been outstanding in this,” he told the “Today” show.

Larissa and I arrived in Washington, DC Friday evening. On Saturday we visited a number of interesting places on foot including the the White House. We spent yesterday at Stafford visiting Shakila and family. Later in the evening we learned Larissa's meetings were cancelled due to "Sandy", the hurricane. We were able to shop for food at Whole Foods early this morning when the winds and rain were not so bad. Ever since, we have been in our room at the Ritz-Carlton on 22nd street. Larissa's meetings in New York City may be relocated to Charlotte, NC or Phoenix, AZ for later this week. As a result, our plans to spend 6 days in New York City and Long Island, starting on Wednesday, may not materialize. We do not know where we will be in the next few days. Our plans to visit Orlando, FL and Houston, TX are up in the air. We will know more in a day or two. We are safe but are bummed out...we were so looking forward to seeing Ayhan, Sorayya & family, Ayshah & family and Chaki in New York. We have our fingers cros ...
