Beyoncé Shines Bright at Michelle
Obama’s 50th Birthday Bash

Yahoo News, by Sarah Flanigan

The stars came out Saturday night to celebrate with Michelle Obama at her 50th birthday bash! While cameras weren´t allowed inside the soiree, according to CNN, President Obama got down on the dance floor and did the "Dougie," but even his moves couldn´t take away from all eyes being on Beyoncé! The singer looked stunning in a gorgeous gold Randi Rahm mini dress, with nude patent-leather heels and wrist full of Lorraine Schwartz bangles, and she knew it! The 32-year-old posted a flurry of sexy shots on her Tumblr page, showing off her long legs, along with a close-up of her amazing


Beyonce stole the whole big shebang out from under Moochelle. And there was no photo ban for Beyonce. Not a chance. She made sure that photos of herself and detailed publicity on her wonderfulness were in the media almost immediately.

Will that be the end of a beautiful friendship?

Like two pigs wrestling for attention. Beyonce the satanist and Mooch the satanic muslim familiar. Whaddya mean still be friends? C´mon. Big Mooch is friends with no one unless they serve her purpose as in Oprah and using her to escape to her sty in Hawaii when she needed it...then all those nasty "we don´t like each other" exchanges go straight out the door. So there you have it— another party while Rome burns and healthcare is sucked down the toilet, another 10m million people go on the dole, the economy grows worse as jug ears lies about how terrific it all is, we have no respect anywhere in the world, we deny our wonderful military their benefits but does that bother the biggest phony and ugliest woman/man ever to occupy the White House? Nah. Mooch has the Zipster, the love of Reggie´s life, to share with and their surly girlies to drag around the country to "suprise" concerts like (here we go again) Beyonce´s.

This family and their sycophants—all of them—are bottom of the barrel lining slime.

Meanwhile they are freezing in the Midwest due to a propane gas shortage. This is starting to resemble the terrible winter of 77-78 when another feckless president donned a cardigan sweater.

You don´t have to go back that far #7. Several years ago when Kentucky was literally frozen over and without power, the Obamas went to NYC to a show and dinner for date night.

I wonder if she gave the same look of hate to Beyoncé that she did to Mrs. Sarkozy at the Normandy observance a couple of years ago? Moochie doesn´t like being the ugly stepsister in any room.

So here´s my confession: I couldn´t name a single one of Beyonce´s songs. And I couldn´t name a single one of her dope-dealing husband´s songs.

However, I can name Fauxbama´s only song: ´It was Bush´s fault.´ And I can name Moochelle´s: ´Barack, did you make sure my vacation bills were put on the public tab????´

It´s understood but I´ll say it anyway. What could be the reason for no photos?? That´s a real stumper, isn´t it?

Obviously, there was some serious disconnect between the gross display of excess and privilege at the party and the pain and suffering endured by we, the people. Otherwise, our Dear Leader would have loved to have photos published with he and some of the best known celebrities in the world. Something nice Obama and Oprah smiling at the camera. But there was so much overkill on display, things like walls of champagne bottles for example, that they couldn´t go there.

Ugly, ugly, ugly... Ugly People with zero class.

Reasons for no photos?

1. Tacky celebrities doing things they shouldn´t in our White House at a birthday party for the purported FLOTUS.

2. High level government officials at party either participating in things that should not be done or standing by witnessing, enjoying, or not doing anything. And not leaving.

3. Moochelle once again having far too much to drink and showing it. (Remember photos of her being held up by Obie as he walked her across the South Lawn from Marine One after their "date night" in NYC?).

4. Mooch´s wighat askew from time to time during the evening due to over-strenuous gyrations. And don´t forget her propensity for very obvious sweaty underarm rings.

5. Moochelle twerking with a string of captive partners.

6. Big O himself doing any kind of dance.

Feel free to add your own.

#9 and 11 you are too funny!! I guess to avoid the problem that #9 suggests, she would always have to be the only woman in the room. You have to wonder how much airbrushing and touch ups are needed for her and that other wretch, Hillary, Madame Porkulus, to appear on magazine covers. Pretty in pink was Hillary´s theme. ( also Miss Piggy´s) As long as adoring fans get their EBT cards and now their pot, well, they are content to live vicariously. All the reality shows have conditioned us to sit in front of a tube and enjoy someone else´s life while ours wastes away. How pathetic.

It is my observation that O hates the "black" ness in him. I´ve never heard a kind or loving word about his mother, who let the unmentionable into the woodpile. He surrounds himself with "blacks" like valjar, Eric holder, Susan rice, and others who are paler than I am after I´ve been out boating. Can you think of one really dark skinned confidante? Wonder what he really thinks about being Joe´s "clean, articulate" n word?

The National Security Agency has eyes and ears everywhere. At least, so we thought. 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.

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas only faces bad options, from his perspective, as he heads into a White House meeting Monday with President Barack Obama. He could accept a U.S.-proposed framework for an Israeli-Palestinian partition deal, he could reject it or he could agree to extend negotiations. Here´s a look at what´s ahead. 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. It would endorse the Palestinian position that the border between Israel and a future Palestine would be based on Israel's 1967 frontier,

Offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, the team´s big free-agent acquisition at $42.5 million, failed his physical and his contract was voided. The team announced that, according to many Bay Area beat reporters. According to ESPN´s Adam Schefter, the Raiders had concerns about his shoulder. The Rams, who were Saffold´s team his first four years, had no such concerns (there are no set standards for NFL physicals) and almost immediately after the Raiders´ announcement agreed with Saffold on a five-year deal.

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.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted
