Michelle Obama was left teary-eyed after Stevie Wonder serenaded her with a medley of his greatest hits, singing ´you´ll always be First Lady in our minds´. Mrs Obama appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night in her final, pre-inauguration television appearance. The First Lady was emotional as Wonder dedicated his musical set to her with special versions of his hit songs Isn´t She Lovely and My Cherie Amour.

First of all, why are exams being given the first week of school? Most kids took exams before Christmas break and have just started on the second semester. Strange. Next, why weren´t she and Barry worried about the children of Chicago during their 8 years of paid vacation? Those are the children who should finally have hope of living one more year. How many were caught in the cross fires of gangs in Chicago and not one word out of her mouth. She is just hanging on to her final 15 minutes with all she´s got.
I´ve blinked out all the goodbye sessions, the tears, the moralising and the false praise being directed at the public knowing that this is not the long goodbye, but the short one. They can emote and serenade all they want, it won´t stop Trump from being on the move. Past is prologue.
All this ´emoting´ is just embarrassing! They aren´t leaving the planet (unfortunately)! they will be in our face every day for years to come. eventually, they are going to get to be as tiresome as Jimmy Carter, even to their fans.
MATAMOROS, Tamaulipas — Two cartel gunmen died during a fierce shootout with state police officers. The skirmish set off a series of blockades and other violent incidents pointing to a yet unconfirmed larger operation. Tamaulipas officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that a team of state police officers had been riding in two SUV’s while carrying out routine patrols when they spotted two gunmen in a gray Ford pickup. The police officers tried to pull over the gunmen near a convenience store, but the driver sped away. During the ensuing chase, the gunmen fired an AR-15 and an AK-47 at the
While it might be disconcerting for some, and Glenn Greenwald is not a political ally, we hold no reservations about exposing the UniParty’s connections to Deep State constructs whenever it surfaces. Fox host Tucker Carlson invites The Intercept’s Glen Greenwald to discuss why the intelligence agencies appear to be in conflict with President Elect Donald Trump. Glenn Greenwald breaks down how the recently leaked 35-page-dossier could have only been injected into the media narrative from one of the intel agencies at odds with, and at risk from, President Trump. WATCH: (Video) Mounting evidence supports the ongoing thesis the Department of
American soldiers rolled into Poland on Thursday, fulfilling a dream some Poles have had since the fall of communism in 1989 to have US troops on their soil as a deterrent against Russia. Some people waved and held up American flags as US troops in tanks and other vehicles crossed into southwestern Poland from Germany and headed toward the town of Zagan, where they will be based. Poland´s prime minister and defense minister will welcome them in an official ceremony Saturday. ´This is the fulfillment of a dream,´ said Michal Baranowski, director of the German Marshall Fund think tank in Warsaw.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.— President Barack Obama signed an order Thursday designating an historic civil rights district in Alabama as a national monument, placing several blocks of a city once rocked by racial violence on par with landmarks including the Grand Canyon. The National Park Service will now have oversight of a downtown section of Birmingham, Alabama — a focal point of civil rights struggles in 1963 against harsh enforcement of laws mandating racial segregation. Obama, who leaves office next week after serving eight years as the nation´s first African-American president, acted after Congress failed to approve legislation proposed to bring the
Sen. John McCain said he did ´what any citizen would do´ in turning over the dirty dossier, which contained unconfirmed secrets about the president-elect, over to the FBI. The Guardian charted the path of how the dossier came to be and how it was that McCain got his hands on the controversial documents. The story of the dossier began with an investigative firm in Washington, D.C., being tapped by one of Trump´s primary allies to dig up some opposition research on the Republican hopeful. Scroll down for video (Photos) In turn, that firm outsourced the research to a ´retired western
Anthony Scaramucci, a prominent investor and member of President-elect Donald Trump´s presidential campaign finance team, has been tapped for a high-level White House role, The Washington Post reported Thursday. While the position hasn´t been officially announced, sources close to the Trump transition told the Post that Scaramucci will take over the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, a powerful role currently held by Obama ally Valerie Jarrett. That would put the former investor at the nexus of agenda-setting inside the Trump White House. The Post reported that Scaramucci will help foster White House relationships with the financial and technology sector. Scaramucci has
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told Breitbart News Thursday Sen. Marco Rubio (R.-Fla.) is the only Republican member of his committee he suspects could vote against the confirmation of former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson for secretary of state. “I am not aware of anyone else who has the concerns of Rubio,” said Sen. Robert P. Corker Jr. (R.-Tenn.), who became the chairman in 2015 after the Republicans won the Senate majority in the 2014 midterms.”You’re going to have to speak to Senator Rubio about that.” Corker said it was his understanding that Rubio was going to
Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.
While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google
Conservative commentator Monica Crowley, who is slated to serve in a top national security communications role in Donald Trump´s presidential administration, plagiarized thousands of words of her 2000 dissertation for her Columbia University Ph.D., a CNN KFile review has found. On Monday, Politico reported that it found more than a dozen examples of plagiarism in Crowley´s Ph.D. dissertation. CNN´s KFile has found nearly 40 lengthy instances of Crowley lifting paragraphs from numerous sources, including several scholarly texts, the Associated Press, and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The revelation comes on the heels of another CNN KFile investigation, which found more than
Donald Trump will be sworn in one week from tomorrow as the 44th president of the United States, and his nemesis Rosie O´Donnell has now gone into overdrive trying to find a way to stop him from taking office. On Wednesday, O´Donnell unveiled her latest plan to delay the inauguration, calling for the implementation of a military government and the suspension of all laws in the United States until Trump has been cleared of any role in the Russian hacking scandal. ´I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW - DELAYING THE INAUGURATION - UNTIL TRUMP IS "CLEARED" OF ALL CHARGES,´ wrote O´Donnell, who
Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of
Wednesday on CNN addressing media reports that he had turned over a dossier containing unverified claims about Russia and President-elect Donald Trump, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, “I don’t know if it’s credible or not but I thought the information deserved to be delivered to the FBI, the appropriate agency of government.” Partial transcript as follows: MCCAIN: After looking at that information I took it to the FBI and have had no further involvement with it at issue. By the way, according to some media reports they already had that information, but I didn’t know that at the time. I
President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."
