    It's inevitable: At some point, teenage kids just aren't that into their parents anymore. Parent Barack Obama, who happens to be president, set out to combat that trend by hanging out with his teenage girls on a New York overnighter. The trio, plus some of the girls' friends, seemed intent on packing a lot into their 24 hours together in the city. But no one was out of the hotel door too early on a rainy Saturday morning after zigzagging around Manhattan in dad's motorcade into the wee hours on Friday night. They finally emerged about 11:30 a.m., as the...

    I think it’s swell that the Obama females are on another international cultural tour – mother, two daughters and grandmother. It’s just heartwarming they’re all getting a first-class ’round the world experience – this time London, Milan, Vicenza and Venice. Media say the first lady is representing our country as she continues her march across continents, giving speeches and glad-handing with royalty and politicians. We’ve got the pictures in media – print, TV and the Internet. Yes, pictures! As I said, “Can we talk?” I have a beef with all this – and I realize I’m in somewhat dangerous territory...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/27/2015 | Rick Moran
    President Obama's 16 year old daughter Malia is one lucky teenager. A lawyer in Kenya is offering to marry her "not for money, but for love." And to sweeten the pot, he will offer President Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats for her. So far, the White House has had no comment as President Obama no doubt weighs the pros and cons of the offer.  Sky News reports that Felix Kiprono told Kenya daily The Nairobian that he "got interested" in Malia in 2008. President Obama was then running for office for the first time and Malia was 10. Mr...

    The Secret Service has stepped out of its lane of protection to assist in another crucial task for the first family: teaching teenaged Malia Obama how to drive, CNN reports. First lady Michelle Obama revealed the details in an interview with television cook Rachael Ray for a show that will air Thursday, CNN said. "The Secret Service [taught her], actually, because they wouldn't let me in the car with her," Obama told Ray, adding that she hasn't been behind the wheel in several years, having been driven during her family's White House years.

In the photo, Sasha and Malia wear sundresses and stand around their parents and pups, but a cute family photo wasn’t what some people saw. Critics thought the girls’ hemlines were way too short. When one commenter called them out for their short length, saying “very short skirts girl,” another disagreed and said it was acceptable. “Finger tip length? Hello!” Another said, “Love them all but I agree with everyone saying the girls’...

Joey Bada$$, who is a member of the Brooklyn-based group, discussed the photo on New York radio station Hot 97 in an interview posted Friday.

    Oh those teenagers. Always trying to do things to shock their parents. In fact it’s a rare teen who doesn’t proclaim beliefs contrary to what her folks are trying to instill. Obviously 16-year-old Malia Obama is one of those very rare teens. Here she is pictured in a t-shirt supporting an anti-white cop gangsta rap group called Pro Era. For those of you not in the know (me included) the lead vocalist of this group, Joey Bada$$ was “arrested and charged with assault after punching a security guard in the face when the guard asked to see his credentials before...

    Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett is out for the season with a knee injury, so perhaps it´s unsurprising that he´s spending a lot more of his time stirring up drama on Twitter. On Monday, the 33-year-old posted an unintentionally provocative picture of Malia Obama which he somehow eclipsed today by live-tweeting his experience serving jury duty. The picture of the 16-year-old first daughter has been making the rounds online, and is a screen grab of a televised event that focuses on her back side. An Instagram used with the username ´dreday_4´ reposted the image to his feed on Monday...

    1,461 Days of Summer The headline was brutal. “Bam’s Golf War: Prez tees off as Foley’s parents grieve,” read the cover of Thursday’s New York Daily News. Obama’s gaffe was this: He had denounced the beheading of James Foley from a vacation spot in Martha’s Vineyard, then went to the golf course. Seems like he had a great time. Such a great time that he returned to the Farm Neck Golf Club—sorry, membership is full—the next day. Technically, Obama’s vacation began on August 9. It is scheduled to end on Sunday, August 24. With the exception of a two-day interlude...

The exact reason for Obama's return remained unclear, though it appeared aimed in part at countering criticism that Obama was spending two weeks on the Massachusetts resort island of Martha's Vineyard in the midst of multiple crises. ...

    The president is scheduled to make a statement from the briefing room at 4 p.m. Eastern time. Speculation has been intense over what else might be going on – an announcement on immigration policy, perhaps? That’s not supposed to come until the end of summer. Maybe some personnel changes? Certainly that could wait until Obama’s two-week vacation is over. In part, the diversion from vacation may be intended to show that the president is active and engaged amid various world crises, from Iraq to Ukraine to Ferguson. But, it must be noted, the two-day hiatus was on the books before...

In his wise book, The Curmudgeon’s Guide for Getting Ahead, Charles Murray advises the gilded youth of today, more isolated from what Episcopalians used to call “all sorts and conditions of men” than their counterparts in previous generations, to seek out summer jobs that will introduce them to people they might not ordinarily get to know. Such jobs can be transformative. “Once you have been a server in a restaurant,”...

    If it's really true that "children learn what they live," then the First Daughters are learning how to be highbrow aristocrats whose extravagances are enjoyed without embarrassment, in full view and at the expense of the suffering. That's right, "the suffering," because notwithstanding the onslaught of Obamaganda, most people in America today, thanks to Sasha and Malia's Dad, are suffering in one way or another. Meanwhile, when it comes to showering themselves with the perks of the good life, the Obamas exercise zero restraint. In fact, three months into the second term, they're actually outdoing themselves. Not only that, but...

    Bristol Palin thinks it’s laughable that President Barack Obama’s children influenced his decision to support same-sex marriage. “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads,” Bristol, the eldest daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, wrote in a blog post titled “Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama” on Thursday. Obama said on Wednesday that his daughers' acceptance of friends with same-sex parents helped prompt his "change in perspective." In response, Palin writes: In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia...

    President Obama endorsed same-sex marriage Wednesday, just hours after North Carolina adopted a constitutional amendment to ban it -- one of 41 states where same-sex marriage is illegal. President Obama's declaration does not change any law, but it does inject a contentious social issue into the race for the White House. "For me personally it is important for me to affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Mr. Obama said. CBS News correspondent Norah O'Donnell reports Mr. Obama has often said he was in favor of civil unions for gay and lesbian couples and...

    It must be nice to be an Obama. Instead of worrying about driving and the high gasoline prices, Barack Obama and his family just take Air Force One and other government planes everywhere. Last week, the President enjoyed some NCAA basketball action in Ohio with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Instead of catching the game on cable, the President and his pal ran up a $500,000 travel bill, charging it to the greatest group of suckers in the world, the taxpayers of America.

    The White House said Tuesday afternoon that President Obama’s older daughter Malia was unharmed by a 7.4-magnitude earthquake that shook Mexico, where she was traveling on a school trip. “In light of today’s earthquake, we can confirm that Malia Obama is safe and was never in danger,” said Kristina Schake, communications director for First Lady Michelle Obama. The quake struck the Oaxaca region of Mexico at 12:02 local time, according to the US Geological Service, and spread over roughly 10 miles.

    After it was reported Monday that Malia Obama was going to Mexico for spring break with 25 Secret Service agents, people began to notice that such reports were being scrubbed from the Internet. Politico's Dylan Byers reported Tuesday this was done at the request of the White House: The AFP page for the story now links to a story titled "Senegal music star Youssou Ndour hits campaign trail," as does the Yahoo page. The Huffington Post page now links directly back to the Huffington Post homepage. The Daily Mail, Telegraph, and Australian stories now lead to 404 error pages,...

    Have you heard that Malia Obama, the president’s daughter, is reportedly spending her spring break in Oaxaca, Mexico? Allegedly, she’s jetting off with some of her classmates and 25 Secret Service agents to a country that the State Department has said all Americans should avoid. But something is different about the latest “Obama vacation controversy:” references to it are disappearing from the Internet — and fast.

    WASHINGTON, March 7, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Obama told reporters Tuesday that he gave personal support to Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law Center student who was vaulted to stardom after advocating for the birth control mandate, because the affair caused him to think of his daughters. “I thought about Malia and Sasha. And one of the things I want them … to be able to do is speak their minds in a civil and thoughtful way, and I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names when they’re being good citizens,” said Obama, as reported by The Hill. “And...

    At Tuesday afternoon’s press conference, President Obama crystallized the terms of the widespread outrage over Rush Limbaugh’s attacks on Georgetown law student and activist Sandra Fluke, denouncing the remarks, and telling reporters that when he called Ms. Fluke, it was with his own daughters in mind. The President said he wanted his daughters to be able to speak their minds “in a civil and thoughtful way. And I do not want them attacked or called horrible names.” The major miscalculation that Rush Limbaugh made, and which GOP candidates like Mitt Romney have compounded, is that average Americans
