Barbra Streisand Calls Obama
´Transparent,´ Rips McCain
on Benghazi-Gate

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/2/2012 10:26:20 PM

Barbra Streisand, noted political scholar and high school graduate, cannot shut her yap when it comes to waxing eloquent on politics. At her favorite watering hole, The Huffington Post, Streisand castigates Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for “fueling the flames of a supposed cover-up by the White House, Secretary of State and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice.” Streisand likely had someone ghostwrite her article, as she is notorious for not knowing how to spell. Remember her infamous memo describing George W. Bush as a “C” student, where she misspelled 11 words, including four in one sentence?

Comments:
If you´re bored and need to reset your BS Meter, there´s no better way than having an article about Barbra Streisand. This is literally one person who should keep her mouth shut when not singing.

BS Meter - PING!!!

She´s like Hanoi Janie -- trying to become relevant as they close out their lives....

Only 2 things transparent to me here (pre coffee). One is the huge empty space where her brains should be, and 2, Obama has been transparently clear in his determination to achieve as much damage, chaos and disunity in this country as he can before he goes. That is, if he does.

How can she say that about our guy McCain? He´s all so moderate and everything -- all the voters love him! He has nothing but friends across that aisle. What is going on here?

Oh my, I´ll have to pause and collect myself, then write a note of inquiry to the RNC this morning, asking them to please explain this apparent anomaly in our Party image. We can´t have Barbra Streisand going around saying such things! What will the Europeans think?

Oh yes, surely it´s a mere anomaly. Our guy McCain was a prisoner of war, you know... He has that lovely wife and family... He... He... He takes hikes! Oh deary me...

I bought all of her many great albums over the first years of her singing career. I also thought she was a rather good movie actress. I’m no hypocrite.

So much for full disclosure.

I believe it may have been Barbra Streisand who inspired the most appropriately titled Laura Ingraham’s book, “Shut Up and Sing.”

As a political pundit, her initials say it all.

Finally, kudos to the author of this article for a classic opening sentence! Bravo!

Does Barbara Streisand truly believe that she speaks for a "majority of Americans"? Thank you Senator McCain for your sacrifice to our great country and for being the voice of those slaughtered on 9.11.2012. May the families of our fallen patriots though your efforts know the truth of what happened to their loved ones.

" But now, even when the Obama Administration is being transparent and forthcoming, even as they are wanting and willing to learn from the mistakes of Benghazi,
where unfortunately four people died, Senator McCain refuses to back down."

They are " wanting " to learn ?
Streisand declares that the murders of two Navy SEALS , a former Air Force officer and an Ambassador was simply " unfortunate ".
Maybe Streisand can tell us where Obama was on the night of the attack .
The only hard fact we know is that Obama went to bed when many , including the Ambassador ,
were still missing .
Obama has been purposefully vague about the exact time he was made aware of the attack .
He may have been listening to Streisand tunes while watching a Judy Garland movie .
Maybe Streisand can also tell the public why
Obama refused to send help .
After all , he is the Commander in Chief .
Since Streisand knows so much about Obama´s activities on 9/11 , it´s entirely possible she was also in the Situation Room
with Beyonce and Jay Z .

Used to see her at a big antique show in the 80´s. She wore bedroom slippers and a house coat.
She has to tour even at her age when she
thinks she is running out of money.
However Mariah Carey works on her music and production too so that her name gets on the label. the she gets her share of the royalties. so I heard that if she tours, it is more "Voluntary"

Court Upholds EPA Emission Standards
Associated Press, by Pete Yost    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/15/2014 2:03:11 PM     Post Reply
Washington - A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission standards for hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. In its ruling, the court rejected state and industry challenges to rules designed to clean up mercury, lead, arsenic and other dangerous air pollutants. The new regulations were designed to remove toxins from the air that contribute to respiratory illnesses, birth defects and developmental problems in children. Some industry groups have criticized the standards, saying the EPA was overstating the benefits. Industry groups argued it would cost billions of

Total lunar eclipse: Many ways

You don´t have to go to the Griffith Observatory or other prime watching spot to view the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. Numerous "blood moon" video streams are available on the Web. The Griffith Observatory will be streaming the event live from the Zeiss dome beginning at 9:45 p.m. The Slooh Observatory in the Canary Islands will also be doing a live stream. NASA is also planning a live stream, with experts taking questions from viewers. For those who want to take in the event in person, Griffith Observatory decided to open its doors Monday (it´s usually closed). "We are expecting large crowds," the observatory said in a statement.

Chelsea Clinton open to run

Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she´s open to a run for a multitude of offices, from mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate. "I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren´t the case, and I didn´t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer." The answer is pretty similar to a response Clinton, 34,

Prices Soaring for Specialty

Even as the cost of prescription drugs has plummeted for many Americans, a small slice of the population is being asked to shoulder more and more of the cost of expensive treatments for diseases like cancer and hepatitis C, according to a report to be released on Tuesday by a major drug research firm. The findings echo the conclusions of two other reports released last week by major pharmacy benefit managers, which predicted that spending on so-called specialty drugs would continue to rise. The report, by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, also found that consumers’ use of health care — visits to the doctor,

Dozens of teenagers are now tweeting

One dumb teenager is easily excused — but the host of Twitter users currently tweeting bomb threats at major airlines is another story entirely. In case you’ve somehow missed this latest round of Internet idiocy, here’s what went down: Sunday night, a Dutch teenager identified only as “Sarah” infamously tweeted a threat at American Airlines. (“hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye,” she wrote. Hilarious!) She then promptly made the account private and insisted it was all a joke — “I’m so stupid, I’m scared,” she wrote at one point —

Accusation of FBI
spying stalls 9/11 hearing
Miami Herald [FL], by Carol Rosenberg    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/15/2014 12:14:27 AM     Post Reply
Guantanamo Bay Navy Base, Cuba - A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality might be compromised in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, in part, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed,

Boko Haram rears its head in Nigeria´s
capital with deadly bomb blasts (+video)

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/15/2014 12:01:49 AM     Post Reply
Abuja, Nigeria - Bomb blasts ripped through a bus station in the suburbs of the Nigerian capital today in the largest single attack on Abuja since insurgents began violent operations in 2009. Authorities say 71 people were killed and 124 were injured in a strike on Nyanya Motor Park, a chaotic bus station where commuters board megabuses into the pristine city center for work less than 10 miles away. The blasts in Nigeria´s capital are a direct challenge to the government´s recent assurances that it has managed to contain Boko Haram, Nigeria's militant Islamist group, to the remote northeast of the country.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
