‘Statist propaganda:’ Michelle
Obama slammed for using military
as ‘props’ during Oscars appearance

Daily Caller, by Vince Coglianese

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/25/2013 10:11:09 PM

First lady Michelle Obama is under fire after she appeared as a long-distance award presenter on the Oscars Sunday evening, flanked by active-duty American service members. The well-dressed members of the military stood attentively behind the first lady inside the White House as she presented the award for best picture to the movie “Argo.” But the use of those service members has left some of her critics fuming. Jennifer Rubin, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, noted that Michelle Obama didn’t even acknowledge the military during her appearance: She declared of

Comments:
This regime has perfected propaganda. The military has always been nothing but props with the 0bamas. Their propaganda began from day one. You can never escape them.

Don´t the Obamas have at least a modicum of decency and self respect. I am embarrassed for our country.

Wasn´t it Mooch´s husband who said to members of the military "hey, you guys make a great photo op"?

I don´t see why the First Lady (not the CIC), gets to stand in front of the military for a non-governmental appearance.

Sweet that it was a movie where the hostages were rescued, not ignored, like in Benghazi.

Stood attentively? Not hardly. Uncovered and smiling is not standing attentively. FWIW, too - more than half were female. Probably all White House Fellows - the same ones who perform butler duties when visiting dignitaries are being entertained.

Just wait until obama shows up wearing a military uniform (like Kidafi, Idi Amin, etc). Then we will have something to worry about.

At this point, just shows neither of them has any idea what CIC means. Imagine Ike´s wife doing that?

I was shocked to see those dress uniforms with a lanyard on what looked to be splashed across their front. Then a cummerbund on a military uniform?

Also I wonder if they volunteered, or were they told to volunteer or else go back to buck private? I can´t image any decent and patriotic military person voluntarily standing with either of those two.

My second post, but IRT some of the above questions/comments:

The female (am I allowed to address the gender of a military officer these days?) immediately to Predator´s right is a Navy lieutenant and the others with gold cummerbunds also appear to be Naval officers. Cummerbunds are part of the standard Dinner Dress uniforms for all the services and the "lanyards" (actually, brassards) are worn by executive aides, which officers assigned to the White House staff are probably considered.

SEIU Uses Federal Inspections to

National Review Online, by Jillian Kay Melchior    Original Article

Union organizers are showing up at Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections of an open-shop business that has been targeted by the country’s second-largest union. Professional Janitorial Service (PJS), the largest non-union janitorial company in Houston, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) haven’t gotten along for seven years. The company is currently suing SEIU for $9 million, alleging that the union has repeatedly slandered it. But on three recent occasions, SEIU representatives accompanied federal safety inspectors to examine PJS cleaning sites, says Evelyn Meza, the human-resources manager for PJS. The inspections resulted in fines. Such an organized-labor presence on OSHA

I just had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with a Council on Foreign Relations group at the United States Special Operations Command in Tampa, Florida. The famed Admiral William H. McRaven started the briefing, followed by his staff. I expected to learn about Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and their air force and marine counterparts. I thought I would hear about the exploits of this 67,000-strong command operating in 84 countries, maybe even about the taking down of Osama bin Laden. But that was not to be. Instead, he and the other officers talked at length about their new mission, starting

Militant atheists — this is why people dislike you. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes he can do all things through Christ, but an atheist group charges that he cannot do all things through Christ on his official social media platforms. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has demanded Walker remove posts from his official Facebook and Twitter feeds that read, “Philippians 4:13.” “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” the verse reads. “This braggadocio verse coming from a public official is rather disturbing,” FFRF co-presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Baker wrote in a letter to the governor. “To say, ‘I can

Moreover, she told Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and the host of Breitbart News Sunday that such groups pair lawsuits with acts

   

 



 
Gallup Suggests Obamacare Responsible
for Increased Racial Polarization
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/24/2014 2:13:05 PM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

Authorities are searching for more bodies after a massive mudslide in a rural part of Washington state killed at least eight and possibly left more than 100 missing, while crews battle uneven ground and rising waters. A 1-square-mile mudslide struck Saturday morning in Snohomish County, critically injuring several people and destroying about 30 several homes. Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene and authorities described the search for additional survivors to be "grim." John Pennington, emergency response managing director, said there are reports of up to 108 people missing in the mudslide but noted that number is unconfirmed. "This is a large

First Lady Michelle Obama included cautious but clear remarks on freedom of expression and worship in a speech in Beijing at the weekend – comments that were ignored in state media coverage of her visit, where the preferred focus has been on fashion and food. Before her visit to China began the White House said she would promote education and “people-to-people” exchanges, and would steer clear of contentious issues like human rights. But in an address to Chinese and American students at the Stanford Center at Peking University, Mrs. Obama did insert references to key human rights, albeit without any

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,
