    Filmmaker Michael Moore has no doubt that Donald Trump will become the GOP’s 2016 presidential nominee. “Donald Trump is absolutely going to be the Republican candidate for president of the United States,” he said, according to Business Insider. “It’s gone from being a joke to becoming a serious reality,” Moore added. "Also, I think people are feeling more and more that we’ve moved back into a darker time.” Moore then admitted that he is concerned about rallying the Democratic voter turnout necessary to defeat Trump next year. “His numbers are high because they are polling Republican voters, or likely Republican...

    Christie Wins Fifth And Mercifully Last Republican Debate This Year... Donald Trump, shark among plankton, didn't have to win the debate. He's 42% nationally. A fact not lost on the other low digit participants including the Act of Love candidate who at 3% has been Tsunamied by a Trump ratio of 14 to 1. Low-digit John Kasich, who looked like a lurker at an I-10 rest stop, yammered about economic security. Was not Kasich a Lehman Brothers Board Member when it utterly failed and nearly took down the world's financial system. Note: During this financial cataclysm, Lehman Alumni Jeb Bush...
  • Michael Moore Gets Snarky about Miss Puerto Rico and the US South [vanity]

    Miss Puerto Rico dared support Trump reg. muslims. She also refused to agree that 'we are all muslims'. This was directed at Michael Moore's latest photo-op. She was banned from the contest. If she had criticized Trump, I imagine she would have gotten a standing-o. [More on that 'old' news in followup post.] Michael Moore got snarky: "Miss Puerto Rico seems like a wonderful representative of maybe not of Puerto Rico but of Alabama, maybe? Mississippi, maybe?"

    Rates of adult obesity increased in six U.S. states and fell in none last year, and in more states than ever - 20 - at least 30 percent of adults are obese, according to an analysis released on Thursday. The conclusions were reported by the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and were based on federal government data. They suggest the problem may be worsening despite widespread publicity about the nation's obesity epidemic, from First Lady Michelle Obama and many others, plus countless programs to address it. From 2011 to 2012, by comparison, the rate of...

    Issa "let loose a volley of accusations on Sunday that seemed to end a brief period of restraint for him," says The New York Times' Weisman. Issa dismissed the idea from the IRS that two "rogue employees" were mainly responsible for the flagging of Tea Party groups, telling host Candy Crowley that the special scrutiny was "a problem that was coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters and we're getting to proving it." Crowley asked Issa to show his cards.

  • Budget tricks helped Obama save programs from cuts (spending cuts exaggerated)

    04/12/2011 8:04:55 AM PDT · by quesney · 62 replies
    WASHINGTON The historic $38 billion in budget cuts resulting from at-times hostile bargaining between Congress and the Obama White House were accomplished in large part by pruning money left over from previous years, using accounting sleight of hand and going after programs President Barack Obama had targeted anyway. Such moves permitted Obama to save favorite programs Pell grants for poor college students, health research and "Race to the Top" aid for public schools, among others from Republican knives, according to new details of the legislation released Tuesday morning. And big holes in foreign aid and Environmental Protection...

    A significant percentage Americans oppose the Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act pushed by First Lady Michelle Obama and signed into law by President Barack Obama signed on Monday. Among other things, the $4.6 billion law allows the USDA to set nutritional standards for foods made and sold in schools; increases the number of children who qualify for school meal programs, and sets basic standards for school wellness policies including goals for nutrition promotion and education and physical activity. According to a new Rasmussen poll, however, only 23 percent of those surveyed think the federal government should have a direct role in...

    (Dec. 10) -- Filmmaker Michael Moore is getting a jump on his New Year's resolution by checking himself into a luxury weight-loss camp in Florida. A fellow patron of the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa told The Daily Caller that Moore turned up at the $4,500-a-week camp in Miami last month. The liberal filmmaker has been there before and told the Chicago Tribune in 2007 that the camp is where he learned to incorporate more fiber into his diet. An unnamed fellow camper said Moore "didn't look like he wanted to talk" with other weight-loss hopefuls there. "But he sure...

    Let's say you're preparing dinner and you realize with dismay that you don't have any certified organic Tuscan kale. What to do? Here's how Michelle Obama handled this very predicament Thursday afternoon: The Secret Service and the D.C. police brought in three dozen vehicles and shut down H Street, Vermont Avenue, two lanes of I Street and an entrance to the McPherson Square Metro station. They swept the area, in front of the Department of Veterans Affairs, with bomb-sniffing dogs and installed magnetometers in the middle of the street, put up barricades to keep pedestrians out, and took positions with...

McClellan said that at the end of an intense routine of cardio workouts and weight training, Mrs. Obama finishes with the "arm-shaping superset" of tricep pushdowns and hammer curls to tone one...

    HARTFORD, Conn. --Republican Rep. Christopher Shays defended the House speaker's handling of a congressional page scandal, saying no one died like at Chappaquiddick in 1969 when Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy was involved. "I know the speaker didn't go over a bridge and leave a young person in the water, and then have a press conference the next day," the embattled Connecticut congressman told The Hartford Courant in remarks published Wednesday. "Dennis Hastert didn't kill anybody," he added. Shays' comments recalled the Chappaquiddick incident, when Kennedy's car ran off a Massachusetts bridge, killing his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy did not...
