  • The Obama family’s Hawaiian vacation home

    --SNIP-- The property is 6,000 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 6 baths and an contemporary Asian theme. Supposedly it was to be listed after the Obamas vacationed there last year for $7.9 million. It’s unknown if plans changed to sell the house or if the property just never sold. Either way, the Obamas are sure to have had a good time in this luxury beachfront home.

    (Adapted from this essay) Steadily burgeoning evidence indicates that one of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, Huma Abedin, despite Ms. Clinton’s protestation, was inadequately vetted for either family, or personal ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Diligent, open source investigation has already uncovered and documented numerous alarming connections. One can reasonably infer that a serious, formal Congressional investigation of the overall extent of Muslim Brotherhood influence operations—as requested by Representatives Bachmann, Gohmert, Franks, Westmoreland, and Rooney—might yield even more disturbing findings. Pending these sorely needed Congressional inquiries—replete with their probing investigative tools—much can still be gleaned from the public...

    As the first family has traveled up and down the Eastern seaboard (and occasionally beyond) for various summer excursions, they’ve given us a number of picture-perfect moments. Remember when the president and Sasha took a dip in Panama City Beach, Fla.? Or how Michelle Obama strode through the streets of Marbella in southern Spain? Not to mention the almost-famous bike ride President Barack Obama took (in long pants!) at Martha's Vineyard. Malia made it to the Vineyard too; sadly, however, we didn’t get a peek of her at sleepaway camp. With summer coming to an end, POLITICO takes a look...

  • Investigation Under Way in Iraqi Family's Deaths

    WASHINGTON, June 30, 2006 – The Army's Criminal Investigation Command is looking into allegations that coalition soldiers killed an Iraqi family of four in their home near Mahmudiyah, Iraq, military officials here announced today. A written statement issued by Multinational Division Baghdad said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. James D. Thurman, the division's commanding general, requested a criminal probe into the allegations after the division's own preliminary investigation found sufficient information existed to recommend a criminal investigation. The incident that led to the allegations reportedly occurred in March, but the military's written statement did not provide a time frame. The statement...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2006 – Catherine McCarthy, a Navy submariner's wife, has a solution for keeping life normal for her three children despite challenges a military family faces. Nothing about everyday life changes, she said, whether her husband, Petty Officer 1st Class Matt McCarthy, is at sea or home. The nuclear electrician's mate has been in the Navy for 11 years. "'Steady' - that's my key word," McCarthy said. "What works for us is to stay solid and stay on the same steady path. When he comes home our philosophy has always been that he fits back into the family."...

    CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq (Aug. 19, 2005) -- Family tradition, especially in the military, is something a lot of people value, honor and pass on to future generations.
