  • Obama’s Hawaiian Christmas vacations cost taxpayers $35 million over 8 years

    For the last time, taxpayers are paying for a Hawaiian Christmas vacation for President Obama and his family, an annual luxury getaway that has cost the Treasury easily more than $35 million over eight years. Golfing on oceanside courses, dining at high-end restaurants and frolicking on stunning white-sand beaches where security guards keep other tourists at bay, the president and his family are in the midst of a 17-day holiday that requires dozens of Secret Service agents, military personnel and other government employees to guarantee their safety and ease of travel around Oahu. The Obamas are once again renting a...

    Two charities that prominent Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King has claimed to have created and has touted publicly were never officially formed, The Daily Caller has learned. King, who was recently hired as a justice writer at the New York Daily News, began raising money for a group called Justice That’s All last September, just after Michael Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson, Mo. police officer. He also said in interviews in 2013 that a media company he co-founded, Upfront Media Group, would send a portion of its proceeds to an affiliated nonprofit, the Upfront Foundation. But an...

    It appears that the folks in Occupy Wall Street would have done themselves a favor if they had followed Newsbusters. Why? Because over three years ago your humble correspondent wrote about how Justin Wedes, who was one of the OWS leaders, attempted to cheat taxpayers by forging documents in order to fraudulently obtain a government grant. Now the OWS people have learned the hard way that Wedes can't be trusted. As reported by the New York Times, OWS activists are now suing Wedes for taking over their Twitter account. In addition they are asking for $500,000 in damages. So now...

    Carl Gibson, co-founder of U.S. Uncut, is joining with other Occupy Wall Street organizers to launch a new populist political party. While more details (including the name of the party and the identities of other key organizers) will be available when the group launches on March 20, the party will be explicitly anti-capitalist. Says Gibson: "A new party that actively opposes capitalism and unites people around the basic ideas of meeting human needs would be widely respected and immediately acknowledged. This new party could stand apart from the two corporate-owned parties by refusing to take campaign donations from corporations, banks...

    New York Times columnist Joe Nocera has a scathing attack on Jon Corzine, whose financial firm just declared bankruptcy. "The idea that Corzine, who single-handedly destroyed MF Global Holdings, was in a position to command so much as a penny in severance is horrifying...." What caught my eye was one word that never appeared in Nocera's column. I'll give you a hint: it begins with (D). Also left out of Nocera's piece, Jon Corzine this election has given the maximum to the Democratic National Committee (and thus to Obama's reelection). But it's not Nocera that's omitting these relevant facts --...

    Al Sharpton's newest role - full-time anchorman - is now a reality. The New York City-based black activist, preacher and former presidential candidate launched his MSNBC-TV talk show, "PoliticsNation," on Monday, August 29, six days after the network tapped him for the 6-7 P.M. (EST) weeknight slot vacated in July by Cenk Uygur. The announcement wasn't unexpected. Sharpton frequently had substituted for Uygur. And MSNBC's parent company, Comcast Corp., for years has been a generous donor to Sharpton's nonprofit group, National Action Network (NAN). The elevation of Sharpton, with a long history of demagoguery and financial chicanery, to top-tier...

Brown said that if Republicans try to offer amendments and use parliamentary maneuvers to grind out the legislative process, Democrats would retaliate with all-night sessions and other methods of fighting back. "I think they're going to try to do amendments, as many as they can get away with," Brown said Wednesday evening during an appearance on MSNBC.

But many experts remain dubious Sam Osmanagich kneels down next to a low wall, part of a 6-by-10-foot rectangle of fieldstone with an earthen floor. If I'd come upon it in a farmer's backyard here on the edge of Visoko—in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 15 miles northwest of Sarajevo—I would have assumed it to be the foundation of a shed or cottage abandoned by some 19th-century peasant. Osmanagich, a blond, 49-year-old Bosnian who has lived for 16 years in Houston, Texas, has a more colorful explanation. "Maybe it's...

    He is back from the dead, literally. The former lover of Olivia Newton John, Patrick McDermott, is said to be alive and keeping well. McDermott had disappeared from the public eye abruptly, way back in 2005 and was assumed to be dead. Over the year, private investigators have been trying to sniff out his trail and it seems now they have achieved the feat. Patrick had gone missing after he had left for a fishing trip off the coast of California. His wallet, keys and boat were left behind but there was no trace of him. Though, at that moment...

About 70 people have paid the Orlando man about $5 a piece to get their messages to those doomed to face the plagues, pestilence and darkness of Armageddon.

The bill -- recently introduced by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Hollywood) and Edward Markey (D-Kennedywood) -- is labeled the “American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009,” which is as Orwellian a name as the “Employee Free Choice Act,” which is of course the way to deny secret ballots to employees in union elections. This bill should be named the “Al Gore Enrichment Act. ” House Republicans will have a chance to do better than their Senate...

But she is still struggling to find a job and might soon lose that home, CNN television affiliate WINK reported Thursday.

    I'm sure this topic has been expored to death but I feel compelled to weigh in as well. The idea of George Bush being hung with this "big lie" label just wrankles me. Do people not bother to look deeper than to listen to some bleery eyed buffoon opine about the integrity of George Bush? George Bush was the last of a long line of World leaders and figures to come the conclusion that Iraq has WMD's. The Russians believed it, the British believed it, Bill Clinton believed it, the leaders of both political partis said so, George Bush was...

    TREASURE ISLAND -- Former tennis star Roscoe Tanner was extradited from Germany to this town near Tampa on charges of writing a bad check worth $35,000 and failing to pay child support. Tanner was being held in the Pinellas County Jail without bail Tuesday, one day after being extradited.

He used the boat's title as collateral for a $10,000 loan, and bounced a check to...

    Hi, guys. Sean Hannity is playing Hillary's incredibly-shrill "I am sick and tired of all this patriotism" screed and it is both horrifying and hilarious. You can't imagine how godawful this woman sounds. You can't help but think, as Hannity keeps hinting, that Bill kinda deserves a pass for cheating on this shrieking harpy. It's just that bad. Anyway, could someone who's computer literate please slap this puppy into an mp3 or wav or wmv file or whatever? It really is... well, it's something. I don't know what it is, but it's something.

    The television commercials featuring Miss Cleo are gone, and it's just a matter of time before the self-proclaimed shaman will no longer be seen in ads in publications such as the National Enquirer and Weekly World News. Meanwhile, the Fort Lauderdale company Miss Cleo has hawked her psychic talents for may be doing a disappearing act of its own before too long -- at least that's the indication given by lawyers for Access Resource Services and its affiliates. ''The company is . . . winding down operations and we are exploring various alternatives, including bankruptcy,'' said Fort Lauderdale bankruptcy lawyer...
