  • Michelle Obama: Husband 'in the Bathroom All the Time Just Singing'

    MRS. OBAMA: It was really sweet. But he sings all the time. Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing. He is always willing to sing. He’s like, you want me to sing now, want me to sing something for you? But he has got a good voice. That was very sweet.
  • Ron Paul Agrees With Obama: The Debate Over Benghazi Is A ‘Sideshow’

    05/17/2013 1:49:03 PM PDT · by mnehring · 49 replies
    Could President Obama have read this op-ed by Ron Paul before his joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron this morning? The president’s assessment of the Benghazi scandal was remarkably similar to that of the former congressman. Both men called the controversy a “sideshow.” While Obama primarily went after Republicans for trying to politicize his administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya last September, Paul chose a more equal opportunity approach in his article, published this morning on the website of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. “Congressional hearings, White House...

    September 26, 2012 Quinnipiac Pollster Admits: ‘Probably Unlikely’ That Electorate Will Feature Massive Dem Skew Matthew Sheffield With no manufactured outrage to hammer Mitt Romney at the moment, liberal journalists are now eagerly touting a series of polls which appear to show President Obama pulling away from the GOP nominee in several key states. Unfortunately, these polls are relying on sample sizes which are skewed tremendously leftward with far more Democrats than Republicans and as such, they are unlikely to be good predictors of actual Election Day turnout. Do the pollsters themselves actually believe in their own sample sizes though?...

  • Disgraced 'Ogle' Teacher Retires (NYC - King of the 'Rubber Room' Teacher Quits)

    Disgraced 'ogle' teacher retires The city's king of the "rubber room" has stepped down. Disgraced educator Alan Rosenfeld, 66, retired on February 3, after a decade of milking tax payers for a $100,049-a-year salary even though he hasn't set foot in a classroom since 2001, school officials said today. The retirement came just days after the Post ran a series of stories exposing Rosenfeld, including how he was banished to a "rubber room" in 2001 for allegedly ogling eighth grade girls -- but then spent his time working on a personal real estate portfolio worth up to $10 million.

  • Scientists say primitive moss triggered ice age on Earth

    Press TV ^ | Feb. 4, 2012 | Who Would Put Their Name to This????
    A recent study suggests that the arrival of primitive moss-like plants 470 million years ago could have triggered a series of mini ice ages on Earth. Researchers at the Universities of Exeter and Oxford tried to explain how the first land plants could affect the climate about 450 million years ago during the Ordovician Period. During the Ordovician Period, the planet witnessed a gradually cooling climate that led to a series of mini ice ages. Scientists believe that the global cooling was a result of a reduction in carbon levels in the atmosphere. The findings published in Nature Geoscience show...

    (Little Rock, AR) -- Mike Huckabee isn't ruling out a run as a Republican candidate for President next year. The former Arkansas governor earlier announced on his program airing on Fox that he had decided against mounting another campaign for the White House. However, in remarks at the Clinton School of Public Service, Huckabee said "everything is still open." He added, quote, "I haven't closed doors." He also had a forecast about how the GOP primary in 2012 will pan out. Huckabee said the eventual nominee will come out of a "bloody primary broke and battered." He predicted Republicans will...

    NEW YORK - The city will end the practice of paying teachers to play Scrabble, read or surf the Internet in reassignment centers nicknamed "rubber rooms" as they await disciplinary hearings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the teachers union announced Thursday. The deal will close the centers, where hundreds of educators spend months or years in bureauratic limbo, costing taxpayers tens of millions of dollars a year. "It's an absurd abuse of tenure," Bloomberg said.

    The Tabloid Trash Beat: Obama Collapses Under The Strain The National Examiner is the Ford Pinto of gossip rags. It doesn't have the credibility (ha ha) of the National Enquirer and it's not quite as flaky as the Globe. Still, when I saw this story on the cover, I had to have it: According to the totally unreliable folks at the Examiner, Obama is cracking under the strain of his own incompetence: "By all accounts, the president was yelling about he's under attack from all sides, until he suddenly got dizzy, went quiet and slumped forward on his desk," says...

    The media has continued to hide and misreport the fact that 30 plus lawsuits are in the courts challenging Obama's eligibility to serve as President. These lawsuits have been trying to avert the greatest Constitutional crisis America has ever faced. The likelihood that Obama does not qualify as a "Natural Born Citizen" as is required under the Constitution is a very serious matter. There is no provision to allow Obama to remain in Office if he has in fact managed to defame/usurp the Office of the Presidency and our Constitution. In fact, every executive order, law, etc. that Obama signs...

    This web page: attempts to list all links relevant to the controversy surrounding Obama's continued concealment of his birth-related documentation. The purpose is to provide a one-stop shop for those interested in researching this further. The media is ignoring this story altogether, apparently in hopes that it goes away. It the story does not go away, then they'll be forced to explain why they failed to ever investigate this obvious question. Please send suggestions for links to add. I will try to update when possible, at least until some responsible news organization begins properly covering the story.

    I was reading in the net like I always do and I came across something really disturbing.As someone born in Ecuador with friends and relatives in Latin America, I’m terrified watching how people in the United States are being manipulated just like people in Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador to put a Marxist in power. The similarities between Rafael Correa’s campaign for president of Ecuador and that of Obama for U.S. president are amazing. Correa had no experience but was young, charismatic and had good speaking skills. Correa’s slogans were the same as Obama’s: CHANGE, YES WE CAN, etc. Once...

    QUEENSBURY — A local man’s challenge of President-elect Barack Obama’s citizenship has been garnering national attention, if not credibility. Robert Schulz of Queensbury is the founder and chairman of We The People, a group dedicated to upholding strict adherence to the state and U.S. constitutions. He says there’s compelling evidence that Obama was born in Kenya, not on U.S. soil, which he contends would make him ineligible to become president. On Thursday, Schulz mailed letters to all members of the Electoral College, asking them to delay the Dec. 15 official balloting until the citizenship questions are cleared up. "We really...

    December 12, 2008 Obama's "natural born" problem By David Huntwork By now you are probably aware that there have been a multitude of lawsuits filed in regards to the question of whether or not President-elect Barack Obama is in fact eligible under the "natural born" provision of the Constitution of the United States of America to be the President of the United States (POTUS). The Constitutional provisions are very specific when it comes to the minimal qualifications for President. One is to be over thirty-five. He is. Two, is being in the country fourteen years. He has been. Three, is...

    Barack Obama never renounced his U.S. citizenship. Also, as he was a minor when he moved to Indonesia, neither he nor his parents could have renounced it. Period. As far as U.S. law is concerned, Barack Obama never lost his U.S. citizenship even as he gained Indonesian citizenship. Indonesia’s laws on the matter simply don’t apply in this country. And so while multiple lawsuits challenging his eligibility still have appeals left to be exhausted, the simple fact of the matter is that there is no credible evidence that Barack Obama is anything other than a U.S. citizen “natural born” in...
