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).

Even my wife, who is a liberal Democrat, wondered what was the point of Michelle´s little speech.

This not only points up how tone deaf the Obamas are, but how tone deaf Hollywood moguls like Harvey Weinstein are. Even non-committed voters are sick of it after being bombarded with political ads last year.

Overall, the telecast wasn´t the best or the worst of recent years...Evita Obama´s appearance was definitely a sour note.

As much as I detest MO & BO, I´ll have to allow that at least someone had some sense to just do a live video feed for MO instead of having her do the ten hour round trip for a five minute appearance. On the other hand, perhaps there was simply too much infighting over which post-Oscar party would be graced with MO´s attendance.

We haven´t watched in years, but I did read her oh, so inspiring remarks s/o -
"These lessons apply to all of us no matter who we are, or what we look like, or where we come from, or who we love, but they are especially important for our young people."

Notice the "who we love" and the rest of it is taken word-for-word from a recent zippy speech; a shout out to their gay/lesb/cross-dressing friends/selves.

It seems that indoctrinating people is top on their list. It´s disgusting.

Anyone else of the opinion that the fix was in for the film "Argo" to win Best Picture from the get-go? Would they have gotten Mooch to present the award to any of the other contenders?

My family take an entirely different approach to watching this spectacle. We laugh at the hideous outfits these designers spend to promote their costumes on actresses and actors that have no business wearing (e.g boobs in the wrong place, bulges grossing out, panty lines extraordinaire, or no panties with saggy but.) We died laughing at the chic that fell - idiot, why did she not have an escort wearing a train t the length of the Titanic, Nicholson was so bombed he forgot where he was and could have been impersonating Ted Kennedy at a DNC post-convention party, and the plastic surgeries that should have MDs imprisoned, etc.

The show is worth watching for its excessive lameness. Idiots on parade who make utter fools of themselves on live TV. And the headline is hysterical.

No need to watch Oscars when you follow Iowahawk´s tweets:

"Either the Oscars show producers didn´t realize how creepy and weird that Michelle Obama appearance was, or they did."

"One day you´re working a $350k no-show patronage hospital job in Chicago, the next you´re on the Oscar stage."

My biggest complaint about it is they would NEVER allow a conservative to do the same. We get to be insulted - not applauded and honored. I happen to love movies and always watch the Oscars. This was a major turnoff to me.

I don´t go to the movies nor do I watch the Oscars. There was a Duck Dynasty marathon on and I watched episodes I had seen at least three times already.It was great. So I was just wondering: How much did that dress cost us? And why didn´t they show us what her big butt looks like in it?

Does anyone remember "Zelig" by Woody Allen? (I know, but bear with me) It was about a guy who becomes a celebrity by inserting himself in all sorts of situations and meets famous people. The Obamas have become this kind of celebrity: we (the left we) project whatever we want onto them. "Being There" with Peter Sellers is similar. Notice I only reference "old" movies. There´s a reason for that. The new ones don´t bear watching.

That being said, I went to see an Alan Jackson concert last night. He even mentioned prayers and the Pledge of Allegiance! Now THAT´s entertainment!

I didn´t watch (never do), but the clip I saw of Mooch on the news this morning makes me wonder about her "hair": Her bangs are different, again. How many wigs does she own, or did she put it on crooked?

Is there no place we are safe from these hideous marxists?

I have come to abhor lefties, progressives, liberals, DemocRATS, whatever name they disguise themselves with...They are so childish, immature, ignorant, and compulsive liars who obsess on such small-minded, close-minded topics. Hollywood, the ass-press, the network news liars, the daily drumbeat of talk show fascists from sun-up until well past midnight, the local news liars, the newspapers who lie constantly like in New York, Washington, Chicago, SanFrancisco, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Boston, etc. etc......and now the stupid internet sites that spew garbage every day, lies foisted by the likes of Yahoo, Comcast, Google, et al....not to mention the HuffPo and other political website liars. And dont get me started on Barry Soetoro and the Mooch and their gang of corrupt, fraudulent, paid liars! Enough of them all! Eyuk.

That said, I LOVE this salon, thanks to the entire Goldberg brigade led by that darling Lucianne! Bravo! And thank you for this much-needed respite in this mad bizarro world we have been subject to.I´d post a SMILE if I knew how!

At first, I thought it was a tribute to "Star Wars" when the camera opened on Chewbacca, but then I realized it was only the Grifter-in-Chief trying to be relevant and get people to look at her. Seriously, this is now just like bread & circuses from ancient Rome. Keep the populace occupied by looking over there where games are going on --- instead of looking at the country´s miserable finances.

Imagine if Laura Bush had stooped to being the presenter of the CMA award for best song and did it by satellite from the White House. The screams of pandering, defiling the dignity of the office of POTUS, cheapening the people´s White House, etc. would be unending. (I might like that thought enough to entertain it but it really is not proper!)Yes, we know, the White House isn´t "sacred" ground but it shouldn´t be sold cheap either --- and used to cash in on a commercial enterprise.

Everyone envolved with last night´s debachle has again participated in dishonoring the USA and that for which it stands. The PC travelers in hollyweird/Boomtown continue to disgrace themselves as they try at every opportunity to lampoon their own country. mmm mmm mmm

Instead, movie fans might have enjoyed the cute movie on INSP last night. We certainly did.

It´s so mundane to compare Michelle and Hillary to Evita. Try Lucrezia Borgia instead -- a little poison here and a lot there.
However the minions voted for Argo instead of the Michell tried to force Silver linings and that cost the man 500k for nothing.( reminds one of the summer Olympics)
Such a betrayal could be considered hot dam that´s a great put down.
Argo was not a pro Democrat movie and no huzzas for Islam.

So glad I never watch the Oscars. Any time now a democrat will propose a bill to confer a royal title (faux, of course) on the Obama´s. Our country´s lofo voters and sycophant media are salivating at the prospect of bowing before them in adoration. People are wired to worship; if it´s not God then it´s leftist ideology and man; as in global warming, celebrities, sports icons, or our leftist president.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93
Variety, by Carmel Dagan    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 4/6/2014 11:52:45 PM     Post Reply
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’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her. Then, she said she swerved to try to avoid running over the rider and

Obama on undocumented Irish:
Our immigration system is broken

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. 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. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

President Barack Obama held a Spanish language town hall at the Newseum last week in which he was interviewed by reporters from some of the largest Spanish media outlets in the world. During the interview, he was asked a question from a man who wanted to buy Obamacare for a family of three but couldn’t afford it. (Snip) Obama couldn’t settle on a single answer to the question, so he instead suggested that the man should just sign up for Medicaid, blamed Texas for affordable insurance not being available, and concluded by saying the man should cancel his telephone service

Why discredited ‘scandals’
get less attention
MSNBC, by Steve Benen    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 3/12/2014 8:48:55 PM     Post Reply
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. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. 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.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
