Obama enjoys ´sequester soul concert´
at White House amid massive budget
cuts and government worker furloughs

Business Insider, by Staff

The sequester may have many across the country singing the blues, but for President Obama, it was all about Memphis Soul. Even with the threat of furloughs and government cuts sparked by the sequester, Obama took the time to enjoy a star-studded concert at the White House tonight. The White House celebration of Memphis Soul music in the East Room--which included special guest appearances by Queen Latifah and Justin Timberlake--is likely to rile Obama´s Republican foes. Some conservatives have called on Obama to give up golf, especially since popular public tours of the White House have been canceled because of

Comments:
The Charleston Post & Courier reports that today´s training mission for active-duty airmen from the 437th Airlift Wing and reservists from the 315th Airlift Wing has been scaled back from 21 C-17s to 15. The last such exercise was in 2010. Coordination with Charleston Airport will ensure no flight disruptions, which can´t be said about Biden´s Easter visit.

Yeah,only conservatives get riled by Obama´s extravagance while the common man suffers one setback after another.And that´s the problem. The Obama cult actually loves seeing him stick it to taxpayers,especially if they envision the taxpayer as having a white face.

White guilt liberals pretend to care about the downtrodden but it doesn´t stop them from putting their hand in the till for their fair share.Caring about the downtrodden entitles you to just compensation.

The White House & Air Force One are the biggest pimpmobiles on the planet. It´s just Obama´s charming way of spitting on and defecating all over the fools who elected him twice.

"Sequester for THEE and not for ME"

If it weren´t for double standards, Obozo would have NO standards at all. This waste of taxpayer money is expected as part of The Wookie Reparation Program (AKA "Proud for the FIRST TIME" gambit).

Malaria and Sharia are getting the most skewed view of America - just like Daddy did.

They just really have no respect for America. It makes one want to vomit because they are such awful people. The children can´t see their "house" but Obama puts on concerts and sends his kids to resorts, let alone the vacations he and his wife take. The press is partly to blame because they ask nothing of him.

My Mamma taught me never to use crude terms -- but -- "spitting" on Americans is what obama and moochelle do -- every day with their extravagances as the peasants struggle to pay for groceries and gas.

Kinda fun -- though -- as the media is starting to see the "real" obama and mrs.

Surprise!!

It is quite disgusting to hear 0bama talk about sequester and how there is no money for anything, yet he and Michelle spend extravagantly on everything they want, all on the taxpayers´ dime. There are million dollar golf outings, and multi-million dollar vacations for their girls, in fact, two big luxurious vacations in one week. Michelle is planning on her multi-million dollar birthday party, and she is also planning her multi-million dollar vacation at Martha´s Vineyard. All this on top of a multi-million dollar Hawaiian vacation, and 0bama and Michelle did not even fly in the same plane; no, they took two planes, two motorcades, and the taxpayer paid for it all.

These people are nothing less than disgusting. Zero is no president and his homely amazon wife and their surly, angry daughters with whom they perpetually hold hands are equally revolting. Their concerts, their dates, their tooling up Airforce One at any whim, the manner in which they vacation, he plays golf, she gardens and lectures the world, the dragging of friends and family everywhere, turning out White House into the zoo for every sicko entertainer has me so angry I want to hit something.

Being able to reflect on a real leader like Margaret Thatcher, the flea size of this teeny and despicable man comes into even sharper focus. The illustration chosen on Lucianne this morning ranks with the best of all times and I´ve sent it everywhere (with credit to Lucianne, of course). Seeing a nasty flea like Barack next to Lady Thatcher´s shoes says it all. She gave her life for her country; Barack Hussein is asking, he´s demanding that our country give their lives for him.

Seeing the pictures taken at that shameful orgy in our White House last night makes me want to vomit.

Last night’s glamorous, glitzy “sequester soul concert” at our White House, during a time when our nation is undergoing a devastating, critical financial meltdown, was an event that begs the question… “What was wrong with this picture?” The answer… it was unseemly, tasteless, indecorous, inappropriate and most of all, that it was a tribute to a certain individual’s blatant, unprecedented egocentrism.

Ed Miliband wants to be ´the first Jewish

Ed Miliband says he wants to be Britain’s “first Jewish PM”. He apparently has no ambitions to be its most historically informed. As any fule kno, Benjamin Disrael--one of the greatest PMs there ever was--was Jewish. Yes, he converted to Christianity. But Ed Miliband doesn’t even believe in God and describes himself as a “Jewish atheist”--so we’re talking about ethnic identity here, not religion. And Disraeli was keenly aware of his ethnicity, calling himself "the blank page between the Old Testament and the New". He said that he regarded the Christian church as "the only Jewish institution that remains

Surge in UKIP Support Among Doctors

The percentage of family doctors supporting the UK Independence Party has surged from 0.3 percent at the last general election to a new high of 7.3 percent, almost double the amount planning to vote Liberal Democrat. The figures, compiled by GP magazine, also show a sharp decline in Conservative support. At the last election, they were easily the most popular party, with 45 percent of General Practitioners (GPs) planning to vote for them. Now, just 16.6 percent continue to back the party. Labour are now the most popular party among GPs, although they still only have 18.4 percent support. This may

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) has hit a record high ComRes poll rating, as the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties both drop points. UKIP is now polling at 20 percent, while Britain´s traditional third party, the Liberal Democrats, have sunk to just 7. The Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror poll shows Labour (35 percent) increasing its lead to six points over the Conservative Party (29 percent), with the libertarian, small-government UKIP hot on the heels of Cameron´s party following the resignation of cabinet minister Maria Miller last week. The poll results also reflect the two debate victories that UKIP leader Nigel

The widow of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs is ´ready´ for Hillary Clinton, and she´s written a hefty check to prove it. Laurene Powell Jobs has given $25,000 to the ´Ready for Hillary´ super PAC, a political campaign organization that has raised more than $4 million to lay the groundwork needed for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s expected White House run. Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also put $25,000 on the table. So did gay-rights philanthropist Tim Gill, who created the one-time desktop publishing software powerhouse Quark Xpress.

A grinning, chuckling Kathleen Sebelius stood alongside President Barack Obama on Friday morning, accepting praise that has eluded her throughout Obamacare´s troubled early months. Only 10 days ago, the president ignored her as he took a victory lap when the Affordable Care Act´s signup numbers crested above 7 million. But he had kind words for the health insurance warrior in her final public appearance as a federal government employee.

Sue Townsend was working on a new Adrian Mole novel when she died, with the working title of Pandora’s Box. The book was due for publication this autumn and Townsend had sent “a few wonderful pages” to her editor, Louise Moore, earlier this year. It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

[Snip] In May 2013 and March 2014, Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer Oversight members´ questions about a plan she allegedly led to subject right-wing groups to years of intrusive questions before they could claim a special tax-exempt status. Liberal applicants were quickly green-lighted. A visibly angry South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy provided the biggest rhetorical fireworks on Thursday, demanding that Democrats join with the GOP in approving the resolution. None

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. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

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

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.”

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
