FLOTUS Interruptus: Obamas Hijack
the Oscars

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by Christian Toto

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 2/25/2013 1:51:59 AM

Conservative movie lovers didn´t suffer any serious Red State taunts during the just-wrapped Academy Awards telecast. Michael Moore wasn´t on hand to bash the GOP, and show host Seth MacFarlane trained his immature wit on George Clooney, breast-baring actresses and the show´s ridiculous length. And then it came time to announce the Best Picture winner, and Jack Nicholson stepped on stage to do the honors. Only Nicholson, and the show´s organizers, had something else in mind. Enter Michelle Obama. (snip) It was an unprecedented cultural power grab by the Obamas, almost daring conservative viewers to adore her as much as progressives

Comments:
The arrogance and in-your-face attitude of this W.H. makes me more and more impatient for the "fall" that cometh (after the pride).

ahhh....don´t worry, most conservatives stopped watching the Oscars years ago. That´s because most conservatives stopped going to the movies years ago, because Hollywood stopped making descent movies. So we don´t care who wins Oscars. So Mooshell was only playing to the choir.

The worst part of these people elbowing their way into the celebrity cult is it actually works better for Obama´s job approval than his policies which are killing this country,overall.

the left would normally cry "can we leave politics out of this" don´t seem to mind when one of these creatures make an unexpected visit.

Is there anything this creepy couple can stay out of? I do not want to see them at the Super Bowl. I threw up a little in my mouth tonight when the First Wookie announced Best Picture.

...you could tell in the first 4 minutes that the show was a turkey waiting to be forked. I enjoyed every opportunity to see Speilberg miss out. I´ll lay odds that getting the first lady up there was with the hope that "Lincoln" would be the big winner...

...now she can be a footnote in forgotten memories...

Is there no limit to the ego of these grifters? I guess we´re only a few steps from having a ´dear leader´ that hits 32 under par in his first golf game , writes plays and symphonies and cures diseases during lunch breaks. These phonies insert themselves in everything. Please God, put them out of OUR misery!

I think above poster is right: the White House hoped that the Lincoln movie would win and they could associate Obama with Lincoln. But Hollywood types are even more narcissistic than the one in the White House, so Hollywood won the Oscar, not The White House.

On top of it the military aides had to come in on a night off to be used as background props. The Obama s , like the Clintons have no shame when it comes to using our military as butlers and servants.

I confess I like to see the dresses. Turned the tv off the second I saw the mooch. No clue what film won, though it´s highly likely it was a movie I had not seen anyway. Just go away Michelle. I´m sick to death of you and your breathless media sycophants who think the world cares how you cut your hair (wigs?) or what you wear (and who pays for those custom gowns?).

The Obama´s are such narcissistic media hogs. The brides at every wedding and the corpses at every funeral is aptly descriptive. They love to "steal the show," while most likely wish they would go away.

They ARE like the Ceausescu´s, living high at the people´s expense. I am utterly and completely sick of them. It´s going to be a long four years.

How fitting. Our Kardashian President and his linebacker wife, with no accomplishments or expeirnce in the motion picture industry, steal the limelight from those who have worked a lifetime in motion pictures.
How fitting that the hypocritical Leftist Hollywood 1%´ers applaud this empty suit poseur. After all, their whole life is as fake as their movies.

Instead of the Oscars, which we never watch, we got caught up with the first three episodes of The Americans on Fx (which we watched on TWC´s ´on demand.´) It´s about a couple of married Russian spies living as Americans in the US in 1981.

No one saw this coming? I´m surprised. I told my friends and husband that I would bet a ventricle that the Obamas would make a "surprise" appearance at the Oscars.

Not that it mattered, being so predictable and all, because none of us watched the program anyway and couldn´t care less who won anything. We long ago abandoned H´wood for the Indies and foreign films.

Hollywood and the Obamas have taken themselves so far out of the cultural mainstream that they have become utterly predictable and thus boring.

There is no such thing as a surprise appearance in Hollyweird. This was planned from the get go. They had to roll out the Sasquatch to make themselves feel good about all of their lying. Joe McCarthy was right in the 50´s and he is right today. America has been over ran by Communist. Next we will see huge murals of these Criminals go up in major Cities all over the Nation.

Next month, zippy will fill out his ncaa brackets on espn and the sports media whores will fawn and gush over him. Last year, zip made a grandstand appearance at a tournament game, and the cbs boot lickers interviewed him at half time so obama could provide anaylysis of the game. So far obama hasn´t violated the Masters tournament. Perhaps this year he can call the winner during the green jacket ceremony, especially if his good friend tiger wins.

How much did that little stunt cost the taxpayers? The plane and the Secret Service plus gown and all the little perks that go along with it. Too bad the press lost their way a long time ago with the dems. Now if this were a Republican President, we wouldn´t hear the end of it. With Libya there, unemployment up again, food prices on the rise then there´s gas. Strange people.

My dear late mother was an unrepetent liberal and loved all these losers from BJ to Gork to J´Effin to of course the ´first black´ (uh, half-black, I always told her). To hear her speak about blacks in America, was as though she thought of them as either all children, or pets. They were to be cared for, always loved unconditionally, no matter what, and if they messed on the floor, we had to ´understand´ what ´they´ had been through. I grew up in Kansas, land of John Brown and the abolitionists, so it´s not like our very own ancestors owned slaves.

But this spectacle of Mitch showing up at the Oscars reminds me of those things my mom used to say about the Obamas - she talked as if they were her own children. Or her pets.

Hollywood now his its own pets. Trot her out there, and watch her do tricks.... yay Michelle! Good girl!!

Having spent the entire weekend on my feet at a horse expo, I was long asleep before the "aren´t we all just too wonderful" event took place.

I lived in Romania under the Ceaucescues for three years so I have to agree with #18 and #19. What I´m hoping for is the 0bamas to have their very own "Ceaucescu balcony moment".

If you aren´t familiar with it, look it up on Youtube. It´s the moment when Nicolae and Elena realized that they had lost their grip on the country. A few hours later they ran for their lives. The rest is history.

CAN WE NEVER GET AWAY FROM THE OBAMAS??????? He "won" by 53% to 51%, despite a solid three years of frenzied campaigning and perks to voters, and there is half a "thinking" country that does NOT love the first couple. And they are EVERYWHERE! (I was also not thrilled to see Jane Fonda trotted out, or Barbra Streisand celebrated, not least by herself, but what can you do?) Someone should tell the Oscar folks and the Jimmy Fallon´s and all the rest that a good number of us are NOT entranced to see Michelle turn up everywhere, to give her imprimatur. Judging by that poor Dr. still in a Pakistani prison and the treatment in Benghazi, the Obamas are NOT heroes re: Bin Laden and his demise---it was Bush, and Seal Team 6.

Didn´t watch the Oscars - as usual - but have heard about Mrs. Obama´s appearance. Can´t this country do ´anything´ without her being there? These two (FLOTUS and POTUS) must be at the forefront of every big event or happening, as if - by their presence - they make it ever so much more important. They love to be seen, adored and worshipped. So sickening!

FTA: "The show´s a disaster," declared Shatner."

Yes, it was. The Oscars event seems to be getting worse and worse. I thought Seth MacFarlane was a mediocre host at best, absolutely no class. His "jokes" were stupid, and his flying nun act was just tasteless. I watched until Shirley Bassey sang, and then only intermittently until the very end, when Best Picture was announced. I´m just glad that neither "Lincoln" nor "Beasts of the Southern Wild", apparently Michelle 0bama´s favorite, did not win.

Adele´s performance of "Skyfall", a "nod to the main James Bond theme" was fantastic. She´s a serious singer, no mere pop star, and she can belt out a song almost as well as Bassey. Indeed, the LA Times headline today reads, "Oscars 2013: Adele, Shirley Bassey save the Oscars".

It was awful.

We went to an Oscar party. This was one of the best Oscar programs we´ve seen in quite a while. Until up popped Mooch. She is such an intruder. Has to be everywhere. She looked awful with massive bangs hanging down in her eyes (though some believe they should be ten inches longer) and was in one of those sloppy talking points drones that she and the mister do, ending with "no matter who (sic) you love".

It was a sickmaker of massive proportions.

It was MO´s audition for an acting gig. Her high status outweighs any requirement for actual experience. (other than her being married to a fake US citizen.)
So, Hollywood, give her an acting gig and the stimulus moeny will flow......to you and your causes.

I followed the Oscars on AOL and listened/read James Lipton hosting/live blogging. He did not mention her at all. He said that Jack Nicholson was very well behaved and there was absolutely no mention of her appearance at all. So I am kind of surprised to find out she pulled a stunt like this. Shouldn´t be though. She should have been home watching like the rest of us.

She was not AT the Oscars. She showed up on live camera from the White House.

And Jack Nicholson, who introduced her, looked like a homeless drunk who´d wandered in off the street.

From another article:

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the FLOTUS appearance was the work of Obama supporter and friend Harvey Weinstein and his daughter Lilly, who arranged for Academy representatives and show producers to secretly fly (via Disney´s jet) to D.C. just two weeks ago to make the magic happen.

The overblown self-importance of these two narcissists is sickening. There is absolutely no venue that is spared from the two of them inserting themselves. They are the masters of propaganda. I think their appearances all the time are way more insidious than they want it to appear. They really think they are the rulers of this country. It´s beyond anything I have ever seen before and it can´t end soon enough.

I´ve given up swearing for Lent, but Mrs Yo filled in brilliantly last night. We hadn´t watched the Oscars in years, but decided to turn in to see the 50th anniversary Bond tributes. The show wasn´t bad and my interest was piqued on a few of the movies. Then Michelle comes on and ruined the whole night.

Doesn´t Hollywood know that 49% aren´t very happy these two grifters are in the WH? Is business so good they can alienate that large a sector of the market?

Have you ever been to one of the cheeseball Indian casinos we have out here in SoCal? They feature a gimmick in which a person steps into a phone booth-looking contraption filled with dollar bills swirling around by way of compressed air or fans, and they keep whatever money they can catch within a certain time limit.

stinky and the sasquatch are that person. They´re furiously and shamelessly grabbing everything they can that is being blown to them by fans.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences is a private organization. In order to be considered a member (see their web site) a person must have made a serious contribution to the motion picture industry. That´s the only way one can become a member.

During the Oscar ceremony, the big awards have always been presented by motion picture personalities who are members of the academy and who have previously been awarded an Oscar.

This year three films nominated for best picture, Argo, Lincoln, and Zero Dark Thirty were highly political in nature. Argo and Lincoln were highly touted by liberal Democrats, and recently both Jimmy Carter and John Kerry came out to pump up Argo´s chances. The liberal Democrats also attempted to jump on the Lincoln bandwagon even though Lincoln was a Republican and it was the majority of Republicans who in historical terms were against slavery, while the Democrats of that era generally supported slavery. In the case of Zero Dark Thirty, it´s accepted that it´s chances were seriously lowered, and even blackballed, because of the water-boarding issue, that liberals as most academy members are consider to be torture.

The liberals running the academy must have been pretty sure, and may even have known for sure, that either Argo or Lincoln was going to win the Oscar, because you can bet that the Obamas would not have been around to essentially congratulate the film Zero Dark Thirty, with it´s water-boarding connotations, if it had won.

Bottom line Mrs. Obama´s appearance was highly political and sure to turn off half the country. Beyond that, Mrs. Obama in keeping with the academy´s traditions and rules, especially not being a past Oscar winning academy member, was not qualified to present the Oscar for best picture.

Liked just about everything in the show except Barbara Streisand, Jane Fonda, and FLOTUS. Streisand cannot sing anymore, she was off key a couple of times and she doesn´t have the breath control she used to have. Fonda is a has-been actress and a traitor to the U.S. She looked like a giant bumble bee trying desperately to look regal. Michelle cast a big stink over the whole program. Phtttttt!

I am a Seth McFarlane fan, tasteless jokes and all, and I thought he was quite good. On FLOTUS, why should anyone care if Michelle Obama presented an award? It makes conservatives seem so petty to gripe about such a nothing-burger. Was anyone still awake for the last award? (I was not.)

Modern Army dress blues are reminiscent of the Union uniforms of the Civil War era. That Michelle was surrounded by them as she opened the envelope leaves little doubt that the dramatically staged moment was in expectation of a different Best Picture.

And, otherwise good reporter, Christian Toto
made things worse calling those damn commies "progressives". Remember both "liberal" and "progressive" are cover- up words for the socialists who want to take over the world. Calling them by those otherwise nice sounding names can only advance the cancerous growth of communism, totalitarianism, socialism, whatever word you are not afraid to call it.
And it´s true, Christian, Ann Coulter, so many of the good guys are simply afraid to call these destructive people what they really are (and they go on insanely calling them liberals, etc) It´s self destructive madness.

For this woman to use the members of the military as Oscar props is revolting and disgraceful.
Ann Romney would have had the dignity and class not to cheapen the presidency by appearing at the Oscars.
And never in a million years would she make uniformed military members act as her posse.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93
Variety, by Carmel Dagan    Original Article

Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

One of the latest tools targeting the growing problem of texting while driving didn´t come out of Apple, Google or Microsoft. It was the brainchild of two Orlando-area entrepreneurs who recently launched a new mobile app called Txt Shield. The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws.

The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there.

Why discredited ‘scandals’

On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel.

They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
