  • Vanity - The Obamas, the Clintons, Joe Biden, no longer big money, speaking headliners.

    The good old sweet days have passed....and are dwindling faster then a sinking anchor falling into the sea for Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Jill Biden, etc. Yep...no heavy duty speaking engagements and no big cash payments. In fact...in the world of today, the Democrat Party has few speaking headliners in massive demand. I wonder why...all of them are losers, that is why. Soon coming is the side show of Attorney General, Loretta Lynch as she tries to cover her butt, relative her secret "tarmac" meeting with Bill Clinton, rebutting the words of Ex-FBI...

    Michelle Obama has a message for Americans who are frightened by the current political climate: remain hopeful. "All we have is hope," the former first lady says in a preview clip from Thursday's "Ellen" show. Obama's sit-down with host Ellen DeGeneres marks her first TV interview since leaving the White House last year. "People are afraid, but then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country, so I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds," Obama tells DeGeneres, when asked what advice she'd give...

    Annabella Sciorra The actress whose films include “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle” and who was nominated for an Emmy for her role in the hit TV show, “The Sopranos,” told The New Yorker that she was raped by Weinstein in the early 1990s and was sexually harassed by him for several years after that. Sciorra alleges that one night after a dinner event in New York, Weinstein offered to drop her off at her apartment and then a while later, when she was in her nightgown, he barged into her place and violently raped her. For months afterward, Sciorra...

    Page Six broke the news last Monday that Barack and Michelle Obama have been viewing an apartment at 10 Gracie Square, an exclusive, white-glove apartment building on the Upper East Side, situated at 84th Street and the FDR Drive. Sources now tell The Post that the couple are merely awaiting co-op board approval to purchase the unit — which is reportedly in the $8 million to $10 million range — in the 1931 enclave, whose residents have included designer Gloria Vanderbilt, exiled former first lady of China Madame Chiang Kai-shek, media mogul Steve Ross and socialite Brooke Astor.

    Big Hollywood (Breitbart) ^ | October 6, 2017 | John Nolte
    Thursday’s New York Times bombshell, which has effectively ended Oscar-winning producer and Democrat super-donor Harvey Weinstein’s career, contains two equally disturbing pieces of news, only one of which the national media will report and explore. The first, of course, involves three decades of sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein, who has released a broad statement accepting “responsibility” for his behavior coupled with the claim that the Times got some things wrong. The second bombshell, the one our national media is already sweeping under the rug, is that for twenty-plus years, many in Hollywood believed Weinstein was abusing his power to procure,...

    Former President Barack Obama and his family are apparently keeping up their tradition of enjoying summer days on Martha’s Vineyard. According to the Martha’s Vineyard Times, the former first family is returning to the island this weekend and will stay in the town of Chilmark. Ann Crook, general manager of the Martha’s Vineyard Airport, told the newspaper of the Obamas’ visit and said it will not necessitate restrictions on airspace, as was the case when the 44th president was in office.

    The American Spectator ^ | Mar. 3, 2017 | Jack Cashill
    On Thursday, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation named Barack Obama the 2017 “Profile in Courage” award honoree, and no one in the major media caught the irony of it. According to the foundation, the award is given to those “whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of ‘Profiles in Courage,’ President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book.” The reader should forget for a minute about Obama’s alleged courage and focus instead on the phrase, “President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book.” This phrase would carry a little more weight, and the award would make a little...

    It was one of the more emotional moments of President Obama’s farewell address. His eyes swelling with tears, he spoke of his wife, “Michelle LaVaughn Robinson of the South Side,” and then, of his pride in their two daughters, Malia and Sasha. “Under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing young women,” Obama said. “You are smart and you are beautiful. But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion.” “And,” he added, pausing for applause, “you wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I...

    There was something intriguing about Barack and Michelle Obama that went beyond their historic rise to power. It was, in part, their manner of being, their aesthetic and the nonverbal ways in which they communicated — with the public and with each other. Their physical language and style spoke intimately to African Americans, but they also broadly reflected the contemporary culture.

    I’m glad someone as distinguished as former U.N Ambassador John Bolton said it first and not me. On Fox News Sunday, he said he doesn’t trust Barack Obama’s heavily politicized intelligence agencies to make a clear, objective conclusion that the Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee and released tens of thousands of emails to WikiLeaks to help Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton for the presidency last month. “It is not at all clear to me, just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC was not a false flag operation,” he said. “We just...

    Michelle Obama kicked off her family's final Christmas season at the White House on Friday by receiving a 19-foot Balsam-Veitch fir from Wisconsin as the official White House Christmas tree. Joined by two young nephews instead of her teenage daughters, the first lady said she's ready and excited for the holiday. . . . Mrs. Obama explained that the appearance by her nephews "is what happens when you get teenagers," referring to 18-year-old Malia and 15-year-old Sasha, the daughters who in past years have joined her for the tradition of receiving the Christmas tree on the morning after Thanksgiving. "One's...

    President Obama enjoys quoting or paraphrasing Martin Luther King, Jr.’s remark that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Like his oft-repeated phrase that his political opponents are “on the wrong side of history,” the statement suggests Obama’s view that real-world events will ultimately shift to what he thinks they ought to be, regardless of his own actions. As chaos both domestic and abroad has shown, there is more to be done to influence the course of events than to dispense platitudes.
