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.
I refuse to listen to anything Barb has to say. She´s the one who said let the little people hang their clothes on the line so she can use their allotment of electricity because she´s s-p-e-c-i-a-l. Along those lines anyway. You get the picture.
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.
Didn´t I just hear that Babs garnered 4 million for her last "performance". Who is supporting this Lefty queen? Why would freedom loving Americans support financially a woman who has such a corrupt soul?
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...
What a raging idiot this woman is. She spends so much time thinking about herself and hearing her "fans" think about her that she thinks she is a Rhoades Scholar---that is, if she could spell it, knew who Rhoades was, and what a scholar is............ Just another reason to skip her latest flick!!!!!!!!
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.
This brainless twit has her big honker so far up the presidential boo-boo that if Odingleberry suddenly stopped walking she would suffocate. I swear I think that my son´s pet gerbil is smarter than ole BS. So according to this nutjob the Obamanation is so transparent(like mud) and cannot be called on the carpet by anyone! Even a blockhead like McCain. Thanks for the update Blabs now go back to sleep.
" 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"
Yes Barbara ~ it´s McCain´s fault the 4 Brave men dies ~ after all what does he know about combat and evil people who rape and murder. After all Obama knows better ~ as Community Organizer ~ he fought lots of rebels. And Yes Babs ~ The Big O is transparent ~ we know exactly what he´s up to ~ NO GOOD ! And Lastly ~ Dearest Barbara ~ I won´t bring you Flowwaaahhhs Anymooorraaah ! Pfftth !
US Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated on Sunday that Israel will be safer the day the recently-reached deal on Iran´s nuclear issue is implemented. Kerry, addressing the Brookings Institution´s annual Saban Forum, recognized Israel´s concern over Tehran´s disputed nuclear ambitions, saying the possibility of a weaponized nuclear Iran stood as an existential threat to Israel. "We will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. Period. Not now, not ever," he said.
Los Angeles - The California health exchange says it´s been giving the names of tens of thousands of consumers to insurance agents without their permission or knowledge in an effort to hit deadlines for coverage. (Snip) Officials with Covered California, the exchange set up in response to the federal health law, said they began providing names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses if available this week in a pilot program. They said they thought it would help people meet a Dec. 23 deadline to have health insurance in place by Jan. 1. The state doesn´t know exactly how many people
The “feminist nightmare” is recurring. Unbowed by Politico labeling her with this epithet a couple of weeks ago, Michelle Obama continues to do what her critics regard as frightening behaviors. Last week, she assaulted independent women by showing off the White House Christmas decorations. “Our goal is for every room and every tree to tell a story,” she explained to an audience of military families in the East Room, where her two-tone gray dress matched the silver ornaments on the trees. She spoke of Christmas trees made from stacks of books (“they’re very cool!”) and described the “first dog display”
Anyone who’s ever gone on a diet is told to lay off the booze because it’s high in calories. And that, of course, must make it very fattening indeed. Go onto the NHS Direct website, and you’ll be told a glass of wine contains as many calories as a slice of cake. Or if you prefer beer, the British Nutrition Foundation reminds you two pints are roughly the equivalent in calories to a full glass of single cream. So you may be surprised to learn that there’s no scientific evidence whatsoever to support the idea that alcohol makes you on weight. That’s hugely counter-intuitive, I know, because alcohol certainly is said to contain lots of calories.
President Barack Obama sounded a nostalgic personal note Sunday night and offered a rare self-assessment while criticizing congressional Republicans as an "impediment" to governing during the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party. Obama told donors the sight of Mt. Rainier illuminated by a setting sun was particularly special because it reminded him of his mother, who attended high school in the Seattle area. "I feel the spirit of my mom," he said. He also attempted to contrast himself with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, saying they are "more focused on positioning themselves for
Los Angeles - Rather than thanking a list of friends and colleagues, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis used their American Music Awards acceptance speech to send a message of tolerance on Sunday night. Ben Haggerty, the rapper known as Macklemore, accepted the award for favorite rap/hip-hop album, then quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in a live satellite feed from the rap group´s latest tour stop. "Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it," he said.
China and India’s success in weakening the latest global warming agreement created friction with other developing nations that are seeking to step up the fight against climate change. The two countries insisted on single-word changes for a deal at a United Nations conference involving 190 nations on Nov. 23. Instead of making “commitments” to roll back fossil fuel emissions, they signed up for “contributions,” a formulation that allows more flexibility in their action. Those last-minute revisions at a meeting that ran overtime by almost 30 hours underscored the reluctance of China and India to join in the sort of emissions
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
