Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to a

These whoppers spin out of her head like so much toxic cotton candy. One of the first was that yarn she told about having watched (a certain year´s) Olympics while sitting on her dear daddy´s knee. Smart readers found out that she´d have had to be 21 when that happened. And he was crippled with often painful MS.

She goes on beyond fibs and whoppers into outright lies with this concocted and oft-repeated story about her childhood poverty, etc., etc., etc. Daddy had a regular civil service job for the boiler company and was a ward heeler for the local Dem machine. They lived in a decent house and lived what was apparently a fairly average middle class life.

I don´t believe we´ve ever heard her brother tell these lies. He is basketball coach at Oregon State and now married to his third blonde white wife. And he was raised in the same family.

Doesn´t her mother tell her to skip this bogus story? It makes them all look foolish.

Your canard about slavery was addressed in the 1860´s by a REPUBLICAN President (Lincoln)...the rest was up to your predecessors...yes, they had an uphill battle and that is why we have rights laws now...

NOW it´s your turn to perform vs. whine...when are you going to start? Sometime in the 35th century is my guess.

And as a result of decades of overreaction to those laws, Michelle was able to elbow her way to the front of the line ahead of other, more qualified students for both college and law school admission, and educate herself far beyond her abilities, all to make up for discrimination she never experienced, except in her imagination. She is now left to perpetuate the myth of white racism (it´s dead), because the alternative is to acknowledge the truth of her inner, secret self doubt and her suspicion that she never really deserved the breaks she got.

She was born after Brown v. Board and so never had to experience a law that "allowed discrimination." And her family lived in Illinois where there were no Jim Crow laws. And she forgot to mention all of the laws and policies discriminating in favor of black people that allowed her go to a selective enrollment high school, Princeton and Harvard.

There are places TODAY where slavery and other atrocities continue: in the Middle East, in Africa, India, for starters.

I heard other day a woman say that she is all gayed out. We can add to that, all blacked out, and all b.c. pilled out.

I cannot understand why such brainiac people can´t get off the stick and address some current problems. Stuff is imploding all around us, but they choose to stay stuck in the 60´s, fighting for civil rights and gay rights and abortion and contraception rights. Whoops, forgot women´s rights.

Of course, there´s money to be paid in those causes and they do not want to turn off the spigot, but everyone is just turned off. No one is really listening or reading about them anymore. I certainly did not read this article.

Yes Michelle there were laws that discriminated on the basis of color. Those laws were supported by the democrat party of Bull Connor and the segrationists.

As Strom Thurmond changed parties he changed hearts too. He hired black aides like now Sen Scott.

The GOP, and the party of Lincoln, has always wanted to uphold the dignity of every INDIVIDUAL. The 14th amendment was passed so that every citizen could have all the rights enjoyed by the constitution.

Yet Michelle can´t wait to impose her beliefs on all and return to the discrimination based on color.

This is completely opposite the views of Martin Luther King, Jr, a republican, who wanted to judge folk on their character instead.

Of course that would reflect negatively on her character.

And coming at it from another direction:

Her words acquiring a very different connotation in their translation into Chinese, the audience nodded vigorously and eagerly grinned at each other as they silently shared their universal approval for adopting such laws in New China, as the personification of what they perceived as the laws’ underlying wisdom stood before them and continued talking.

I wonder if Michelle is familiar with the Chinese Exclusion Act? Maybe she could also tell them about that.

According to Wiki:

signed by President Chester A. Arthur on May 6, 1882. It was one of the most significant restrictions on free immigration in US history, prohibiting all immigration of Chinese laborers. The act followed revisions made in 1880 to the US-China Burlingame Treaty of 1868, revisions that allowed the US to suspend Chinese immigration. The act was initially intended to last for 10 years, but was renewed in 1892 and made permanent in 1902. It was finally repealed by the Magnuson Act on December 17, 1943.

sadly, I doubt that she knows any of this.

Former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Ronald Colburn tells National Review Online that the Obama administration has undone all of the progress made at America’s southern border since 9/11. “We’re back to a pre-9/11 situation basically, and this administration did that in the past five years,” he says. “All of the good that was done after 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly.” Colburn, who spent more than 30 years working for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says the resulting national-security risk has to do with the “clutter” of people at the border.

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has secretly notified Congress that the military intends to transfer six low-level Guantánamo Bay detainees to Uruguay as early as next month, according to people with knowledge of the communication. All six have been approved for transfer for more than four years. Mr. Hagel’s formal determination that the transfer would be in the national security interest of the United States breaks a bureaucratic paralysis over a deal that has been waiting for his approval since March, but stalled amid the political uproar over a prisoner exchange deal that secured the release of Sgt.

If the Palestinians are merely engaged in a nationalist struggle for self-determination, then why are they inciting genocide of Jewry? In the midst of Operation Protective Edge, Hamas released a music video in Hebrew calling for the Palestinians to bomb Israel and kill all Israelis. “Raze it [Israel] to the ground, exterminate the cockroaches’ nest, and banish all the Zionists,” the lyrics read. Some human rights activists and lawyers may get a sense of déjà vu upon reading these words. Back in 1994, there were several radio broadcasts calling for the extermination of human cockroaches. They were in Rwanda. When the Hutus began their

Sam Brownback over education and tax policy. The disaffected Republicans include outgoing Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, three former Kansas Senate presidents and three former Kansas House speakers.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
