Former President Bill Clinton was awarded “Father of the Year” this morning at a reception at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. Clinton received the award from the National Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council. According to the nonprofit’s website, the award is presented to fathers who have achieved professional success while serving as role models to their children. Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, was on hand to present her father with the award and had this to say: “My father has never stopped being an example for me,
Comments: Ah yes, the old horn dog. He has such high moral values and everyone should honor and respect him. He is everything you would want in a father. s/o John Edwards was another former nominee?? What a sick, pathetic joke this is!
Any soldier dad who is currently serving is more deserving of that. This has nothing to do with honoring fathers. It has to do with the liberal flotsam in that group wanting to rub elbows with their Party leaders.
These awards are a joke. Giving out awards from professional and other social organizations that are by enlarge run by liberals is a game. They operate these groups for only two reasons: to spew liberal propaganda and to give awards to persons of like mind which is meant to give that person validity as a leader whom we should follow and heed their advice. That is why Zippy go the Nobel Peace prize. What the h*ll did he do to earn it?
The real irony, 24, is the fact that I once heard an interview with one of the officers in charge of security in the Arkansas governor´s mansion, and he said the Clintons constantly used the "k" word and the "n" word.
This is too funny. Because of this draft dodging moraless moron we had 5 year olds giving each other "the business". BJ getting this award is akin to Odummer getting the nobel "peace" prize for doing zip. Now please excuse me while I go vomitus eruptus.
President Obama argued at the weekend that it was unrealistic to envisage an agreement with Iran requiring a complete end to uranium enrichment. But Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu countered that turning up the pressure could deliver “a better deal,” describing the issue as “the paramount challenge of our generation.” Both leaders took part in the Brookings Institution’s annual Saban Forum – Obama on Saturday, Netanyahu by satellite link on Sunday – with Iran dominating both appearances. Technical experts from Iran, the U.S. and the other five powers involved in the negotiations are due to meet in Vienna from Monday to discuss
DEVELOPING ... Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered the U.S. military to transport Burundian troops to Central African Republic, amid sectarian violence in that country. ORIGINAL STORY ... The Pentagon is considering requests to send U.S. military support to Central African Republic, a senior U.S. official said, as the country is racked by sectarian fighting which recently prompted France to deploy troops to its former colony. The development comes amid warnings that the historically unstable country could be on the verge of genocide. If the order to assist French and African Union forces currently operating in the country comes down, it would likely come in
In an interview with Sports Spectrum magazine Willie & Phil Robertson, stars of the top-rated cable television show Duck Dynasty, discuss fake bleeps, and the A&E networks editing out when they pray ‘in Jesus’ name.’ When the producers of Duck Dynasty asked the stars to stop saying “in Jesus’ name” during prayers because it might offend Muslims, Phil Robertson stood his ground and gave an eye-opening response. “So they would just have me saying, ‘Thank you Lord for the food, thank you for loving us. Amen.’ So I said, ‘Why would you cut out ‘In Jesus’ name?’ They said, ‘Well those editors
Well, this participant of the knockout game probably will reconsider future engagements after being beatdown by the woman he punched and her boyfriend. The video shows the assailant targeting the woman, who doesn´t go down after he lands his punch. She turns around and starts punching him repeatedly in the head - but, only after her boyfriend delivers an epic kick to the face. According to OpposingViews.com, the incident occurred in a Las Vegas, Nevada shopping mall.
Eight Northeastern states petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency on Monday to require a group of "upwind" Midwest and Southern states to more aggressively reduce smog-forming pollutants from power plants that drift across their borders and pose health risks. The states, all represented by Democratic governors, said the petition was a last resort after trying to persuade the leaders of the upwind states — Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia — to reduce harmful emissions that cause respiratory problems, such as asthma. "We need the EPA´s help to clean our air," said Delaware Gov. Jack
In the progressive future, men will not be able to look at women’s bodies because that is a terrible thing to do — and science says so. Researchers have offered a definitive report into the science of the male “objectifying gaze” in the December 2013 volume of “Sex Roles: A Journal of Research” (Volume 69, Issue 11-12, pp 557-570). “Although objectification theory suggests that women frequently experience the objectifying gaze with many adverse consequences, there is scant research examining the nature and causes of the objectifying gaze for perceivers. The main purpose of this work was to examine the objectifying
Pro-Obamacare messages are being plastered on Americans’ Facebook pages by President Barack Obama’s most faithful supporters, many of whom need a morale boost, according to a new email blast from the president’s front-group. “Next time you hear from the Obamacare naysayers in your life, here’s something you can send them… 29,000 Americans successfully signed up in just the first two days of the week,” says the Dec. 7 announcement from Obama’s “Truth Team” The email is signed by Erin Hannigan, the health care campaign manager for the president’s Organizing for Action nonprofit.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
