President Obama´s recent appointment of Julia Pierson to head the Secret Service provides an opportunity for the Republican senators to put her on record regarding the veracity of his claim to have gotten bin Laden. Interesting questions about the photo have been raised here on The American Thinker. She ought to be able to answer the question: "Was the really Obama in the photo, or was it someone else?" While the details of the president´s schedule are definitely a matter of personal security in real time, more than a year later, the right of the Legislature to exercise its checks-and-balances
There were too many people in and around the room to get away with it. Even if they are somewhat loyal, there´s always a ´White House Insider´ handy to spill the beans. If it was photo shopped they wouldn´t have made Obama seem so insignificant.
Yeah, it´s faked. Trouble is, if they force her to produce the logs of B. Hussein´s whereabouts, the President´s cabal will simply produce another forgery. I wouldn´t be surprised, at this point, for the administration to forge a winning lottery ticket using crayons and a movie stub, and nobody in the MSM would question it.
Ya....the "Ber-surfer-ticket" is so clearly a fake. We are all being held hostage to a form of thought control. Where are all the jurnolists who excuse their obnoxious behavior because of their commitment to the truth ???
Why are we being shouted down and marginalized ??
Why are only Leftists empowered with the right to call Bull Snit ?
Previous articles I have read here have addressed this. The shirt he was wearing was buttoned like that of a woman´s shirt, and I don´t think he wears women´s shirts. This could mean that his image from elsewhere was reversed to fit in with the gaze of everyone else, or that the body is someone else´s. It´s still a better job than the long form birth certificate.
It´s interesting as an example/proof of WH propaganda, and might be embarrassing to the administration should the populace ever be presented with it, which they won´t.
They would produce the logs to authenticate him if the logs supported his narrative. I, too, believe they kept him away in order to have deniability if things went south, and then inserted him in the story later.
My question is: if this woman is going to be in charge of the SS, which is a lean trim law enforcement organization, charged with guarding our most high profile politicians, why is she so overweight? What kind of example is she setting? If she was in the military she would have been out for being so overweight. Look at a recent full length photo of her. She seriously needs to go on a diet.
I see what you mean #11, the picture posted on most of the googled articles show a woman 10-15 years younger than the overweight person that was sworn in by the duo Biden/Obama. If Michelle cares so much about the "healthy body" why does her husband appoint so many overweight women?
#2, nothing has been leaked about Obama, from the faked birth certificate to his grades to what hole he was on when the raid was happening. I don´t know if they have that much power over everyone or if the MSM has made it clear that they aren´t interested.
DALLAS — When the executive director of former President George W. Bush’s public policy institute decided to move on recently, he stopped by for an exit interview. Mr. Bush asked if he had anything in particular he wanted to talk about. Nothing specific, said James K. Glassman, the departing director. “O.K.,” Mr. Bush replied, “I want to talk about painting.” After early self-portraits in the shower and then dozens of paintings of dogs and cats, Mr. Bush, it seems, has now moved on to world leaders. He told Mr. Glassman that he wanted to produce portraits of 19 foreign presidents
DETROIT —The last time there was a white mayor of Detroit, the Vietnam War was just ending and the nation was getting used to a Supreme Court decision called Roe vs. Wade. But now this city, which is in the midst of a trial to determine whether it is eligible for bankruptcy protection, is set to elect its first white mayor since 1974, Mike Duggan, and by an overwhelming margin. Recent polls show Duggan up by a nearly 2-1 margin over his opponent, Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon, in a city that is 82% African American. Duggan´s lead is seen
Jon Huntsman Sr. denied he was the source behind Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) claim during the 2012 campaign that Mitt Romney had not paid taxes in 10 years. Huntsman — the father of the former GOP candidate and Utah Governor of the same name — called the book “Double Down,” which published the report, “nothing but supermarket, tabloid trash.” “It’s so ridiculous that people associate my name with Mitt Romney’s tax returns, like I would have interest in it or know about it," Huntsman told The Salt Lake Tribune on Friday. "These fellows who wrote this book, they
For years, it seems, Barack Obama had a golden political glow about him. Following a knock-out keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, he rode a short stint in the US Senate to the White House just four years later, handily winning re-election four years after that. The African meaning of his first name – “blessed” – seemed apt. Along the way, and with the help of Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, he won what is likely to be seen as his most important piece of legislation: the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Democrats lost
Bill Maher has no qualms about saying that President Obama clearly lied about people being able to keep their health care plans if they liked them, and clashed with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz over exactly how significant that lie was to the health care debate and whether Obamacare would have been passed in the first place without it. Maher wondered if Obamacare had been passed in the first place if he was more honest about insurance plans. Wasserman-Schultz insisted “it was not a lie,” but Maher shot back, “Because of Obamacare, they are not able to keep [insurance plans].
In the final weekend of the campaign for Virginia Governor, Republican Ken Cuccinelli has announced rallies with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and former Congressman Ron Paul, among other Republicans. The Cuccinelli campaign has put its hopes for a come-from-behind victory in energizing base Republican and conservative voters. Walker and Paul both have unique appeal with voters Cuccinelli needs on Tuesday. Walker will attend two rallies for Cuccinelli on Saturday, appearing in Spotslyvania and Woodbridge, two Northern Virginia suburbs were the Republican needs a strong vote. Ron Paul will attend an evening rally on Monday, the eve of the election in Richmond. Libertarian
1,500 to 2,000 supporters of Senator Mike Lee, waving American flags and holding home-made signs, gave a ten minute ovation to their favorite Senator at a rally in Salt Lake City, Saturday morning, to counter the media narrative that ‘his constituents don’t like him.’ Two "nasty protesters" were reportedly arrested. The Salt Lake Tribune reported: The Republican senator has taken a beating in recent weeks, not just from Democrats but members of his party for leading the fight — along with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas — that forced a 16-day partial government shut down. "I’ve read polls that said some
As daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. this coming Sunday morning (Nov. 3), most Americans will join snoozers across more than 60 other nations in savoring the gift of one extra hour of sleep. Though the biannual ritual of turning clocks might feel like second nature to us today, it is actually a fairly new phenomenon that has only taken effect on a global scale within the past several decades (though many countries including Venezuela, Kenya and Saudi Arabia still don´t partake in it today).Benjamin Franklin suggested the idea back in 1784, as a way to economize on sunlight
Early Friday, a woman who said she was seeking scheduled abortion services drove up to the Whole Woman´s Health of San Antonio, only to find the main clinic shuttered. “Are they closed?” she asked a female companion in the passenger seat, a worried look on her face. She became one of an untold number of women in Texas who were stuck in limbo Friday regarding their ability to receive an abortion or related care as at least 13 clinics in the state stopped providing abortions. On Thursday night, a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in
America might have just missed out on Richard Nixon’s psychedelic rock album, according to Tevi Troy. In his new book, What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted: 200 Years of Popular Culture in the White House, the presidential historian and former Bush administration official writes that Grace Slick, Jefferson Airplane’s lead singer, attempted to crash a White House reception for Finch College graduates—a group that included both Slick and Nixon’s daughter, Tricia—with a plan to spike the president’s tea with LSD. Though White House security rebuffed Slick (accompanied by Abbie Hoffman), the incident nonetheless demonstrates the often-antagonistic relationship of
NEW YORK- In addition to cheering supporters, runners in this Sunday´s New York City Marathon will also be monitored by bomb-sniffing dogs, police scuba divers and surveillance helicopters to prevent an attack similar to the one at the Boston race earlier this year. The New York Police Department started planning its extra precautions a day after the deadly April 15 bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured 264, said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. "We are well equipped and well deployed," said Kelly. Taking a lesson from Boston authorities who identified two brothers suspected of setting off the bombs
Along with documenting the many technical failures of Obama´s so called signature website Healthcare.gov, this CBS New York item reports the Obama sticker shock many Garden State college students now face thanks to the increasingly misleadingly named Affordable Care Act. New Jersey built up a relatively extensive network of junior colleges in the 1970´s and 80´s. Now, ObamaCare is forcing them to drop cost effective insurance programs they had previously provided to students. Many students have found themselves in health care limbo this semester. Community colleges in New Jersey used to offer cheap health insurance for hundreds of dollars a
I´m reading a terribly sad book these days. It´s a book that I thought would uplift me during the doldrums of second-year medical school, and renew in me a sense of hope. It´s called "The Audacity to Win," and it´s a memoir of Barack Obama´s 2008 presidential campaign. When I´m finished with my patient write-ups at night and get into bed, the book returns me to a time when politics inspired millions and speeches could take your breath away. The election turned out to be a landslide, and news anchors paused to reflect on the historic nature of the hour. My classmates
President Obama used his executive powers on Friday to create a ´Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience.´ Obama´s plan would be put in place through executive order, bypassing Congress, which has stalemated over climate legislation in recent years. A year after Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, the President signed the order which is designed to make it easier for states and local governments to respond to weather disasters. The executive order establishes a task force of state and local officials to advise the administration on how to respond to severe storms, wildfires, droughts and other potential impacts of
The latest NBC/WSJ poll finds that more Americans would vote for a third party candidate for Congress than a Republican. 35% of voters prefer a Democrat, which has been steady for three years. Republicans, however, have experienced an 8-point swing against them since they took control of the House. Today, just 28% of voters say they would vote for a Republican for Congress, while 30% would opt for a third party. The GOP Establishment, engaged in open war against the Tea Party and conservatives, is simply committing political suicide. Listening to the consultant and pundit class who inhabit the "Acela line"
As one of the surviving members of the staff of the Warren Commission, which investigated and issued a report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, I am not looking forward to the coming weeks: Nov. 22 will mark the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death, and that means a new round of demonizing the Warren Commission and celebrating fallacious conspiracy theories. After Chief Justice Earl Warren hired me to work for the commission, he told me that “truth was our only client.” Throughout the inquiry, that phrase remained our guiding principle. The evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald killed the
CNN´s senior legal analyst thinks that any further investigation into Benghazi is looking at a "non-story" since "there is nothing there, in terms of a scandal." On Thursday´s AC360 Later, Jeffrey Toobin scoffed at Republican efforts to gain access to more Benghazi witnesses and CIA operatives. "This is a non-story. Benghazi was a tragedy. It´s not a scandal. Republicans are going to investigate this until the end of the Obama administration. They will find nothing, because there´s nothing to be found there," he insisted. [Video below the break. Audio here.]"We don´t know all the facts about the Civil War. If
CNN has been pondering what they call “a particularly tough few days at the White House.” “Four out of five Americans have little or no trust in their government to do anything right,” says chief political analyst Gloria Borger. “And now Obama probably feels the same way.” Our hearts go out to him, poor wee disillusioned thing. We are assured by the headline writers that the president was “unaware” of Obamacare´s website defects, and the National Security Agency spying, and the IRS targeting of his political enemies, and the Justice Department bugging the Associated Press, and pretty
Food stamp benefits will be cut to more than 47 million Americans starting Friday as a temporary boost to the federal program comes to an end without a new budget from a deadlocked Congress to replace it. Under the program, known formally as the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program, or SNAP, a family of four who get $668 per month in benefits will find that amount cut by $36. SNAP, which benefits 1 in 7 Americans, is administered by the department of Agriculture and is authorized in a five-year omnibus farm bill covering all agricultural programs. Vulnerable populations will be hardest hit by
A former top general and current executive at the Family Research Council says members of the military have considered staging a coup d´état against President, but will not because of civilian control of the military. "People I´ve spoken to would like to see the military ´fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president,´ " retired Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin told World Net Daily, a website best known for pushing Obama "birther" conspiracy theories. "Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You´re not going to see a
Richmond, Va. - Women may hold the key in Virginia´s slash-and-burn race for governor, rendering a final judgment on a campaign marked by fights over social issues. Democrats have not relented in their criticism of Republican Ken Cuccinelli´s positions on abortion, women´s reproductive health and even divorce, and it´s taken a toll, especially among female voters. Polls show Cuccinelli consistently struggling to connect with women in his race against Democratic Terry McAuliffe. Heading into Tuesday´s election, the cash-poor Cuccinelli campaign is trying to set the record straight at every stop, with the state attorney general telling allies, "The truth is
Wendy Davis should send Rick Perry a muffin basket, because he may have handed her a winning issue in her longshot bid to succeed Perry as governor of Texas. It may be counter-intuitive that Davis, a Democratic state senator running for governor in a red state, would bring up the controversial health care reform law, but it might be a risk she needs to take. In order for Davis to defeat Attorney General Greg Abbott, her likely Republican opponent next November, political strategists say she needs to win big among two key demographics: Hispanics and white women. Among Hispanics in
President Obama just issued an executive order “to prepare the Nation for the impacts of climate change by undertaking actions to enhance climate preparedness and resilience.” “The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise — are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation. These impacts are often most significant for communities that already face economic or health-related challenges, and for species and habitats that are already facing other pressures.
Editors of The Associated Press condemned the White House’s refusal to give photojournalists real access to President Obama, who prefers to circulate press release-style pictures taken by his own paid photographers. These official photographs are little more than propaganda, according to AP director of photography Santiago Lyon. The AP has only been permitted to photograph the president in the Oval Office on two occasions. Both were during his first term. All other pictures of Obama in his office were taken by White House photographers and distributed to the press. Previous administrations were less strict about photos, undermining Obama’s frequent claim
