    Michelle Obama compared her struggle to succeed as a young black woman in America to the experience of British Muslim girls during a visit to in inner-city girls school in London. The First Lady, who is visiting the UK for two days, and met with Prince Harry this morning, struggled to hold back tears as she gave an emotional speech to Mulberry School for Girls in London's Tower Hamlets. She'll meet with Prime Minister David Cameron later today. She said: "Girls like you inspire me and impress me every single day. "When I look out at all these young women,...

    GREENE, Iowa – While school districts can be blamed for the pitiful preparation of meals, the skimpy portions are due solely to the federal regulations championed by First Lady Michelle Obama. Many students are continuing to turn to Twitter to expose their disgusting school lunches, with many of them using the #ThanksMichelleObama hashtag. One student’s meal consisted of a half-scoop of apple sauce, a quarter of an orange, a carton of low-fat milk and … dog’s vomit?Mady Bixby, the student who posted the photo, tells EAGnews this lunch was served at North Butler High School in Greene, Iowa. Others were...

    fox ^ | October 23, 2014
    Michelle Obama made yet another flub on the campaign trail Thursday when she apparently confused Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall with his Republican rival. Obama spoke in Denver Thursday as part of a campaign event for Udall, who is engaged in a heated battle with his Republican opponent, Rep. Cory Gardner. She touted Udall’s Senate record in her speech, and called him a “fifth-generation Coloradan.” “Mark understands what makes this state special,” she said. The only problem? Udall is not a fifth-generation Coloradan. In fact, he was born in Arizona and his father, former Rep. Mo Udall, served as a...

    Were we not just talking about the shortcomings of epidemiological studies a few days ago? Short synopsis: they’re usually only good enough for government work – until they’re not even that good. (h/t Clarice)Unfortunately, it’s beginning to look like the study that reported the early success of Lady M’s No Child’s Fat Behind program was bogus. If the news last month that the prevalence of obesity among American preschoolers had plunged 43 percent in a decade sounded too good to be true, that's because it probably was, researchers say. When the study was published in late February in the Journal...

    Oh my goodness! After appearing in her zoot suit in early November to promote – of all things – Hollywood, MO went into hiatus for awhile. She re-emerged recently to use her charms to offset the negative press we’ve been getting lately. Not just over Obamacare, now even our signature “No Child’s Fat Behind®” program seems to be under siege. How can this be? After 5 full years of Lady M’s coaching and cajoling, our kids still can’t even run as fast as their parents? I find that disrespectful, and probably racist. “There are still generations of people, older people,...

    WASHINGTON - First Lady Michelle Obama raised money Monday for 2014 Senate Democratic candidates, including Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. In a speech, she warned Republican control of the Senate would derail her husband's agenda. **SNIP** "So make no mistake about it, the midterm elections matter," Mrs. Obama said. "They matter. And if you want to bring some change to Congress, then we can't just sit around feeling angry or helpless or hopeless.

    Kathleen Sebelius (aka Kathipotamus) is testifying on the Hill as I post. So far, it looks like fun, although she looked a bit surprised to find out she was going to be sworn in; you know, “swear to tell the truth.” That always complicates matters. I wonder if anyone’s going to ask her about Lady M’s friend’s who works for CGI? Or if anyone will dare mention the Valkarie’s son-in-law’s potential connection to the HHS contract? Butt I tell you what – how about we just ignore all the hippopotamuses in the room: Dems dancing at the Kathipotamus testimony and...

    It's not just her husband. She is simply and completely dishonest. They're quite a matched pair. Over the last couple of weeks we've been hearing her tell us how her husband "struggled" as a youth. CHARLOTTE — Michelle Obama’s convention message was simple: Barack Obama understands the hardships of working Americans. He’s been there himself. “For Barack, these issues aren’t political, they’re personal because Barack knows what it means when a family struggles,” she said. The first lady used the word “struggle” or a variation seven times throughout the speech, much of which was an extended retelling of the Obamas’...

    While greeting a Latino audience to support her husband’s speech about opportunities for Hispanics, Michelle Obama decided an exotic gown was in order. As President Barack Obama spoke at the black-tie event, the First Lady looked stunning in the strapless raw-silk dress by U.S. designer Chris Benz. She appeared to be inspired by an Amazonian peacock as she sashayed into the Washington Convention Center with matching emerald hued earrings and classic black heels. And Mrs Obama seemed delighted with the President’s pledge to put more money in the pockets of Latino workers by the look of her ear-to-ear grin on...

    "Better Homes and Gardens" hasn't had a public figure on its cover in 48 years. With President Obama's approval rating plummeting along with the nation's employment picture, they must have figured now was the time to break with tradition and do an ultimate exposure puff piece on his wife: Better Homes and Gardens will feature First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover of its August issue - the first public figure to grace the magazine's cover in 48 years. Obama will be the focus of an article on healthful eating for children. The issue will hit newsstands July 19. Editors...
  • Why Christiane Amanpour Is Bombing on ABC's 'This Week' (Cause she's a she and a DC outsider)

    Politics Daily ^ | October 1, 2010 | Luisita Lopez Torregrosa
    Nine weeks since her hot launch as the host of one of the major Sunday political talk shows, Christiane Amanpour is tanking as the ratings for ABC's "This Week " have fallen dramatically to the point that the program occasionally drops to last place among the top three. "This Week," under hosts George Stephanopolous and Jake Tapper, at times hit No. 1, but usually held a strong second place in the Sunday morning talk show wars, after the perennial favorite, "Meet the Press" on NBC. But now "This Week" is winding up in third place more often than not...

    NewsBusters ^ | 09/27/2010 | Noel Sheppard
    The Christiane Amanpour as "This Week" host experiment so far is a huge failure for ABC as ratings have plummeted since she took over the Sunday political talk show. Last Sunday's program attracted 29 percent less viewers than the same day last year. Making matters worse for ABC executives is the fact that Amanpour's numbers are far worse than interim host Jake Tapper's who did most of the anchoring after George Stephanopoulos left for "Good Morning America." As Steve Krakauer reported Monday, the decision to bring Amanpour over from CNN is so far not looking like a good one:

    Yes. I am new to this website and was wondering why my account was banned? I posted an article I wrote about how Buddhism not Islam is a threat to America and is the fastest growing religion instead of Islam. I noted how Buddhism denies the existence of God and the divinity of Christ, I also made note of how Buddhists practice an evil satanic ceremony called doku. It is a ritual where Buddhist monks use a doku drum made of the hide of a white christian baby to conjure up demons for human sacrifice. Using three fingers they beat...

    And what if, this coming November 2, at the same time as millions of Americans, all the world's peoples went to the ballot box to vote? There would be legitimacy in their participation in the election of the president of the world's greatest power. Simply because their lives, their future, depend on it in one way or another. It would be a symbolic gesture, a universal speech in observation of a fact and a direct and unambiguous way of saying that the fate of the world depends in large part on the American presidency. The Vietnamese and the Chileans at...
