Today ^ | 3/7/2019 | Lisa Tolin
It should come as no surprise that Michelle Obama took early inspiration from a character with "superhuman strength." Even if that superhero wore pigtails. In an interview for Jenna Bush's new Open Book video series on TODAY, Mrs. Obama recalls the first book love of her life: Pippi Longstocking. "I was really fascinated with this strong little girl that was the center of everything. And she was almost magical in a way. I mean, she was stronger and tougher than anyone. She had superhuman strength," Mrs. Obama told TODAY. She was drawn to the character's quirks, and notes that no...

Dan Pfeiffer, former assistant and senior adviser to President Barack Obama, thinks he knows the exact date the modern era of fake news was born: April 27, 2011. “I had walked into the briefing room that morning with 50 copies of Barack Obama’s birth certificate,” Pfeiffer recalls in a memoir, “Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter, and Trump,” set to be published next week. “So we could prove once and for all the man who was in his third year as president after winning an historic electoral landslide was an American citizen and eligible to...

A forthcoming memoir by Obama confidant Ben Rhodes includes the startling admission that the 44th president’s inner circle should have seen Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss coming – because President Trump was essentially using the Obama playbook to discredit her. The New York Times published excerpts of the book, "The World As It Is," which describes outgoing President Barack Obama’s shock and disbelief at Trump’s election victory. But Rhodes also seems to acknowledge that Trump used some of the same lines of attack employed by Obama during the hard-fought 2008 presidential primary against Clinton – minus what Rhodes describes as the...

If you think Facebook has problems, they’re nothing compared to the fiasco at the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. Americans should be far more alarmed about what’s happening with the obscure, private California company that oversees the Internet’s backbone. "ICANN’s " gross mismanagement of behind-the-scenes technical operations threatens the security, interoperability, and openness of the entire Internet, industry experts warn. Unlike the Facebook situation, however, there may not be much lawmakers can do. President Barack Obama paradoxically decided ICANN was better off without any government intervention. ICANN now has absolute control of key Internet infrastructure and answers to...

President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign hired controversial research group Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, a new book claims -- raising questions about Democrats’ possible long-standing ties to the group. Fusion GPS is the opposition research firm behind the “Trump dossier,” which contained what former FBI Director James Comey described as "salacious" and "unverified" allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump. The dossier cited Russian sources who said Russia had information that compromised Trump. The firm was retained by Marc Elias, an attorney representing both the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee. It...

Every woman does.” In the new essay collection Courage Is Contagious, public figures ranging from activist Janet Mock to historian Jon Meacham to comedian Patton Oswalt pen touching tributes to our most recent first lady. Compiled by Nick Haramis, the book is an extension of his wildly popular feature on Obama in T, The New York Times Style Magazine, a communal celebration of what she brought to the White House.

It seems the Trump family is making an effort to appear more approachable. After first lady Melania Trump caused a stir when she stepped out in a $51,500 coat during the G-7 summit last month, various members of the Trump family have been seen out in more approachable, everyday brands. Now it seems Dolce & Gabbana is out, while Target and J.Crew are in. Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump's eldest daughter and one of his advisers, was photographed earlier this month leaving her house in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, DC, in a dress that was easily identified as a...

The sex secrets of the young Barack Obama have been revealed in an authoritative new biography of the ex-president. Obama slept with his girlfriend Genevieve Cook on their first date, before she wrote him a poem about their 'f***ing' and called their sex 'passionate', the book about the former president reveals. They also did cocaine together - and after they split she slept with his best friend. Obama also considered a gay relationship while at college, twice proposed to another white girlfriend, and cheated on Michelle with his ex during the first year of their relationship.

Back in 2012 when I thought Romney had a chance, I posted some of these. Here's the 2016 version. Unless he declares martial law in the next 25 days, it's likely that President Obama will be looking at retirement from public office in the very near future. Publishing houses are scrambling to sign the soon-to-be former president for his first post-presidential book. The top 10 working titles that Mr. Obama is purportedly shopping include the following. 10. Only My Black Life Matters 9. Turns out I'm JV 8. The Manchurian President: My Puppet Masters Should Be Proud 7. Doped and...

If you are inclined to believe that Donald Trump's campaign for president is some meta-reality television show, think again: The Donald is rolling out an impressive ground game in Iowa, whose caucuses in February will be the first presidential primary contest in the nation, reports The Washington Post. As a member of Rick Perry's Iowa team tells the Post, "I see [Trump's campaign] as a major threat to all the other campaigns because of the aggressiveness of their ground game." The Post notes that Trump is building a large field organization and that his Iowa campaign director, Chuck Laudner, helped...

On the front of Monday’s Style section, The Washington Post promoted a forthcoming biography of Michelle Obama by Peter Slevin, a Chicago-based Post correspondent covering Chicago and Obama’s career until 2012. Post reporter Krissah Thompson began with the Obamas living together before marriage until the story went inside the paper, and how Slevin is “looking closely at the role race played in shaping her worldview, particularly at Princeton and Harvard Law.” “To say that during her Princeton years she could not envision an African American president is like saying the sun rises and sets every day,” writes Slevin, who was...

The primary job of the Solicitor General’s office is to argue cases before the Supreme Court. Why is it taking Amazon’s side on this appeal? Here’s a surprise. The e-book antitrust trial that went so badly against Apple two years ago is headed to an appeals court Monday and there’s a new name on the docket. Arguing for the U.S., alongside the lawyers for the antitrust division who handled the trial, will be Malcom Stewart, one of the biggest guns in the office of the U.S. Solicitor General. For the Solicitor General’s office to argue a case at this level...

Pro-amnesty activists are declaring victory on Barack Obama's Facebook page. And more than that, similar to their actions on the White House's Facebook page, they are specifically calling out white people. This is the Barack Obama's real page, which has on it his official video announcing executive amnesty plan. And President Obama is allowing racist antagonism like the comments below. Racist comments by pro-illegal alien activists are all over the page. Here are just a few, which are still up at the time this article was written:
 

Panetta Book Bombshell: Challenges to Obama's Legitimacy Affected His Presidency

The American Thinker ^ | 10-13-14 | Jack Cashill
Largely lost in the hubbub over former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s new book Worthy Fights is one intriguing revelation. As reported in the New York Times, the accusations that Barack Obama was not what he appeared to be, perhaps not even a natural-born citizen, caused him to become tentative on the national stage. “Those challenges have encouraged the president’s caution and defensiveness, which in turn has emboldened further challenges,” Mr. Panetta wrote. As the originator of one of those challenges, namely that terrorist emeritus Bill Ayers helped Obama with his 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father, I can confirm the...
 

Obama's Justice Department Set Up A Fake Facebook Page In This Woman’s Name

The Justice Department is claiming, in a little-noticed court filing, that a federal agent had the right to impersonate a young woman online by creating a Facebook page in her name without her knowledge. Government lawyers also are defending the agent’s right to scour the woman’s seized cellphone and to post photographs — including racy pictures of her and even one of her young son and niece — to the phony social media account, which the agent was using to communicate with suspected criminals. The woman, Sondra Arquiett, who then went by the name Sondra Prince, first learned her identity...
