Exclusive: A baby for former
first daughter Jenna Bush

President George W Bush
and his wife Laura who were
desperate for grandchildren

Daily Mail (UK), by Sara Nathan

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/11/2012 6:00:09 PM

She has become a hit on the Today Show with her warm on-air presence, but Jenna Bush Hager will be taking time off from the small screen to have her first child, MailOnline can reveal. The daughter of former President George W Bush is expecting a baby with her husband Henry Hager - and debuted her bump on the NBC show on Tuesday morning. The pretty blonde, 31, looked blooming as she showed off her fuller figure as she joined her twin sister Barbara at the UNICEF Snowflake ball in Manhattan last month.

Hit...warm presence...pretty...

Since this article was about a member of the Bush family I knew it had to be a foreign newspaper without looking.

Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

Don´t take the baby for granted, though. Carrying to term and delivering a healthy baby are always the hope, but never a sure thing until they´re in the proverbial rearview mirror.

Never hear anything positive or just ANYTHING about the Bushes or Romneys. I would love to hear about both families. The toadies MSM block all good news about Repubs and/or conservs. Thank goodness, we have the British papers. O´Reilly has started calling out "hate" speech and it mostly comes from the left. Wish he had been doing that when the lunatic left attacked Sarah Palin. Those will go down in history as the most undeserved orchestrated long-lasting attacks ever on a public figure. Even now, many unbiased folks believe some of the lies and do not like her. She is very courageous and I believe one day will be an important person, if there is any justice!

A young woman claims she spent an entire flight in 2011 in the cockpit being entertained by one of the pilots who was flying the missing Malaysian Airlines plane. Jonti Roos, who is who is currently living in Melbourne during a year-long stay in Australia, said she and her friend Jaan Maree were waiting to board their flight from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur three years ago when two pilots plucked them out of the queue and asked them if they would like to ride in the cockpit.

House Republicans on Tuesday released a scathing report on Lois Lerner’s involvement in the Internal Revenue Service’s scrutiny of advocacy groups, accusing the former IRS official of trying to crack down on the nonprofit organizations that have grown increasingly powerful in recent elections. The report, released by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), said Lerner “led efforts to scrutinize conservative groups while working to maintain a veneer of objective enforcement.” It also accuses her of obstructing the oversight committee’s investigation and misleading Congress about the IRS’s efforts as well as her own conduct.

The topic of man-made climate change doesn´t just stir heated debate. It raises serious concerns - and even fuels calls for taxes on carbon emissions. But regardless of whether you accept the expert consensus that human activity has contributed significantly to global warming over the last century, you might be encouraged by a new theory about our supposed capacity to affect the weather. From a recent release from Stanford University: "Computer simulations by Professor Mark Z. Jacobson have shown that offshore wind farms with thousands of wind turbines could have sapped the power of three real-life hurricanes, significantly decreasing their

KUALA LUMPUR- Malaysia´s military believes a jetliner missing for almost four days turned and flew hundreds of kilometers to the west after it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country´s east coast, a senior officer told Reuters on Tuesday. In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew. Malaysian authorities have previously said flight MH370 disappeared about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur for the Chinese capital Beijing.

An Oregon family were forced to dial 911 after their 22-pound pet cat went berserk and held them hostage in their own home. Lee Palmer and partner Teresa Barker were holed up in their Portland bedroom Sunday after bad mog Lux scratched their 7-month-old child in the face before seriously freaking out. Even their pet dog fled to safety, terrified that the puss would cause further damage.

Pew collected the answers into theses buckets of a hopeful and not-so hopeful future (with some other random ideas ginned up, too).

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, escalated a behind-the-scenes dispute with the CIA by publicly accusing the spy agency of secretly searching a Senate computer system, an act she said undermines congressional intelligence oversight and may have violated the law. The expanding dispute has opened a rift between the CIA and the Senate committee that oversees it and often has defended it. Already, some CIA officers could face criminal prosecution as a result of a Justice Department investigation of the incident. "I have grave concerns that the CIA search may well have violated the

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called a poll that finds he has a 30 percent job approval in Arizona “bogus” on Monday. “There is a bogus poll out there,” McCain said on Fox Business’ “Cavuto.” “I can sense the people of my state. When I travel around, which I do constantly, they like me, and I am very grateful.” McCain did not mention any poll by name, but a poll released last week by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning group, found that McCain’s 30 percent approval in his home state was the lowest of any senator in the country.

The race to succeed long-time Representative Bill Young of Florida´s 13th congressional district who died in October will be decided, as all special elections are, by who can get more of their base supporters to the polls. But as a preview of the November mid terms, the race probably isn´t very relevant. The Democrats appear to have all the advantages. Alex Sink, Florida’s former chief financial officer and the Democrats’ 2010 gubernatorial nominee, had a head start on the race as she was virtually unopposed in the Democratic primary. Her ability to raise early money was in contrast to Jolly,

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama joined comedian Zach Galifianakis on his Funny or Die web-based interview program, Between Two Ferns. The interview immediately became contentious when Galifianakis launched into a series of critiques of Obama’s presidency to which the president was unable to respond… because they were asinine. “When I heard that people actually watch this show, I was actually pretty surprised,” the president began. “In 2013, you pardoned a turkey,” Galifianakis noted. “What do you have planned for 2014?” “We’ll probably pardon another turkey,” Obama replied. The interview became tense when Galifianakis probed Obama over what he appeared to

Earlier today Sharyl Attkisson announced on Twitter that she was leaving CBS News. Early reports suggest the split was "amicable" though Attkisson is said to have wanted to leave because she had grown frustrated with the network´s "liberal bias." Specifically, she felt it was a struggle to get her work on the CBS Evening News, the network´s flagship news program. Erik Wemple of the Washington Post reached out to Andrew Tyndall who was able to put some numbers to the frustration that apparently drove Attkisson out the door: Attkisson was the 18th most used reporter in major network nightly news, with

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

The father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza has spoken publicly for the first time to make the startling claim that he wishes his son had never been born. Giving a series of interviews to The New Yorker magazine, Peter Lanza dubbed his son Adam ´evil´ for killing 20 children and six staff at the Connecticut school just before Christmas in 2012. Explaining that his son spent his entire life troubled by mental illness, Lanza, a vice president for GE Energy Financial Services said that in his opinion he thought his youngest boy was an undiagnosed schizophrenic.

Writing a check on an account with an iffy balance, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told The New York Times that he thinks the Republican establishment is "going to crush [our opponents] everywhere." It took zero-point-zero seconds for that quote to become precisely the sort of rallying point that Republican incumbents would probably rather their opponents not have. The Tea Party-versus-establishment war has rarely been articulated as plainly as in McConnell´s comments. Although it appears that McConnell was probably speaking within the fairly narrow frame of candidates challenging incumbent Republican senators. Last week, McConnell´s second-in-command on the Hill, Texas Sen.
