The Hill [Washington DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 8/17/2013 11:09:46 AM

President Obama and other top administration officials rubbed shoulders with stars of screen and stage during an exclusive Martha´s Vineyard cocktail party hosted by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts earlier this week, according to a report from the New York Post. In addition to the president and first lady, top Obama fundraiser and Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was in attendance, as was "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Larry David and singer Carly Simon. (Snip)Other notables included Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman, civil rights activist Vernon Jordan, entertainment executive Peter Chernin, and California Attorney General Kamala Harris.

Obie and Mooch stayed for two hours, then went on to dine for three hours with anonymous friends at a local restaurant. Who carried her home?

Meanwhile, Coptic Christians are being killed, Egypt is in turmoil, and our Government can´t figure out how to end sequestration...

Obama has no time for security briefings, except for photo ops, but can hob nob with the elite for an entire evening.

Obama takes credit for catching and killing Bin Laden, but can´t stay in situation room entire time because of boredom?

Peter Pan Principle? Napoleonic Complex? Narcisstic personality disorder? Anyway you call it, Obama is not a leader. He certainly does not care for the Sovereignty of the USA, and he does not care that we know he doesn´t care...

Larry David devoted one full season of Curb Your Enthusiasm to the hatred he had against President George W. Bush.

Would George Costanza´s political endorsement be worth anything? Larry David´s whole career is based on what an amusing loser he is -- it´s hilarious that Democrats don´t ask him to stand somewhere else.

Amazing how many multi-millionaires are commie socialists and America haters. They all make millions or billions and yet hate the country and system that made them rich and powerful.

I don´t get it.

I´m old and the country and world is in the worst shape I´ve ever seen it. All the elites seem to want fascism, power, oppression or control.

Whatever happened to freedom?

I´m afraid, depressed and/or scared, not just for me, but for freedom, the world, sanity, reason, reality and Western civilization.

Golf insiders will note that David recently sat down with Feherty for an hour. It turned out to be flat and humorless. I´d expect an allegedly smart man like LD to have some great golf insight but no, remarkably uninteresting. I suspect his golf is as joyless.

He did express his bafflement at the Ryder Cup´s huge popularity, exposing a mindset that will go unexamined here.

As I´ve said about Larry David, I find him hilarious and wish him the worst.

In 2012, during a classified but widely-known operation at Fort Meade, MD, government crypotographers and developers downloaded the OpenSSL source code, as it does with dozens of other software published on the Web. The operation´s objective was to find weaknesses in the library and exploit those vulnerabilities as part of wider efforts by the intelligence agency to conduct mass-scale surveillance.

WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS EXPECT TO BE IN THE FRAMEWORK? U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hasn´t presented a written proposal, but Abbas aides say they expect it to contain the following.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.
