    The first lady of the United States will be sitting with a Syrian refugee at this week's State of the Union Address. The refugee's name is Refaai Hamo."Growing up in Syria, Refaai Hamo lived what seemed to be the kind of life associated with the American Dream - the son of a farmer and housewife, he worked construction at night to pay his way through college on his way to a PhD, married his college sweetheart and built a family together. This life and happiness changed forever when a Syrian government anti-personnel missile tore through the complex Refaai designed and...

  • VANITY: Upcoming State Of The Union.So What Technique Will Obama Use To Create "Fake Tears"?

    And here we go again.Should we call it "Obama Tears Part Two"? So what will Obama do next time to fake his tears? Have a very large onion three feet away? Put "Hot Mexican Pepper" on some of his right fingers? There has to be at least 12 ways for an actor to cry on cue. So what will Obama do when he gets to the line "First Graders"? Can you imagine if the timing is off when he wipes his eyes and there were no tears falling out "On Cue"?, Hey, didn't Bill Clinton try to pull this stunt...
  • State of the Union Spectacle Would Appall Thomas Jefferson

    On Tuesday evening, amid much splendor and spectacle, the president of the United States will be welcomed by a joint session of Congress, there to be cheered and applauded like a homecoming conqueror, and, before an audience of lawmakers, diplomats, military officers, and dignitaries, to deliver his State of the Union oration in a live nationwide broadcast.It is the most preposterous and gaudy ritual in American political life. Thomas Jefferson will be turning in his grave.Like Moses, Jefferson was burdened with a speech impediment and disliked public speaking. Unlike the Hebrew lawgiver, Jefferson wasn't compelled by Heaven to preach to...

    Congress's first Muslim member, Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and nine other Democrats are inviting Muslim guests to Tuesday's State of the Union address to combat the anti-Muslim rhetoric of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and growing anti-Muslim sentiment in the electorate. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said she's helping to organize the effort because "leading political figures have made offensive and outrageous suggestions that we should create a national registry of all people of one particular faith and that we should prevent any person of that faith from even entering this great country."Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis.,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz will skip Tuesday's State of the Union, the final such address of President Obama's time in office. "It's not a snub. He's going to be in New Hampshire, working hard to win New Hampshire," Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told the Dallas Morning News. "No disrespect. It just is going to work out this way," Tyler said. Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., and Rand Paul, R-Ky., plan to attend. Rubio has been criticized in the past for skipping Senate votes and duties. Cruz, though less vocal than other candidates, has at times joined the chorus against...

    Out of time to push a new legislative agenda, President Barack Obama will look past Congress and to the American people in his final State of the Union address, aiming to define his presidency and his legacy before others can do it for him. For his seventh address, Obama plans to skips the traditional list of grand proposals, new policies and presidential appeals for new laws in favor of a broad overview of what he has accomplished since 2009 and what is undone in his final year in office. Aides said the president on Tuesday night will give his assessment...

    This has got to be the worst timing for a State Of The Union Address, especially when most of the worlds crises are at the fault of the party in power. It seems that every time Obama makes these addresses, he ends it with "The Economy Is Roaring!, We Are Back From The Brink!". Is he really going to say that again after what is going on with the stock market? How will Obama speak of what is going on with Iran,Saudi Arabia and North Korea? What about ISIS? What a Mess ha? Should be interesting to see who Obama...

    S.C. Gov.

Haley is calling her nationally televised speech an “address” rather than a “response” as they have been called since they began in 1966. She is the first South Carolinian to deliver the State of the Union response.

    Only the Democrats own the Karl Marx-given right to be the ruling class in present-day America After the last dismal seven, hardly anyone’s interested in tuning in on President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union address, come January 12. So borrowing from social media, the Obamas seek to boost viewership by making the 2016 State of the Union Flash Mob style. What if they threw a party and no one ever came is only Martin O’Malley’s problem. With millions struggling through the current wobbly economy and spending more sleepless nights worrying about what kind of future Obama is leaving...

    Barack Obama is preparing for his final State of the Union Address, which he'll deliver January 12. And the president is not looking to slow down as the end of his presidency nears. "I've got 12 months left to squeeze every ounce of change I can while I'm still in office. And that's what I intend to do," Obama writes in an email to supporters. We've done a lot of remarkable things together this year, and it's because of committed citizens like you that this country keeps moving forward. You keep proving the cynics wrong. On January 12, I'll be...

    White House officials are pledging that President Obama will deliver a “non-traditional” State of the Union address in January, the last time he will deliver the annual speech as president. The address will still be given in the Capitol before joint session of Congress. But instead of rattling off a laundry list of proposals for lawmakers to consider, a senior White House official said the president will take a “big picture approach to some of the challenges and opportunities that we face” as a country. The plan is a recognition of the limits Obama faces during his final year in...

    The White House is promising President Barack Obama will deliver a "non-traditional" State of the Union address next month, eschewing the standard litany of policy proposals for a broader discussion on the challenges facing the country. The format reflects the legislative reality for Obama's final year in office. Much of what the White House and the Republican-led Congress could realistically achieve in an election year is already underway, including discussions on criminal justice reform, and the ticking clock on Obama's presidency leaves little time to jumpstart major new initiatives. ...

    The head of the Democratic National Committee is encouraging party members in Congress to invite Muslim-Americans to President Obama's State of the Union next month as a rebuke to Donald Trump. And no, based on Politico's reporting, they don't specifically say it's a rebuke to Trump himself, but it's pretty strongly implied in some of the language they use. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Congressman Keith Ellison (one of two Muslims in Congress) wrote a joint letter to House Democrats saying that inviting Muslims to the State of the Union sends a message that "we will not be intimidated...

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A 27-year-old man was sentenced to three life terms in prison for sexually abusing a child, Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth's Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, said Wednesday. Sauron Sou was sentenced Wednesday on three counts of forcible sodomy. Circuit Court Judge Glenn R. Croshaw, who handed out Sou's sentence, described the crimes as "vile, despicable and disgusting acts." Sou had pleaded guilty on March 16. The Commonwealth's evidence would have proven that, between January and August of 2014, Sou sexually assaulted a young child on multiple occasions had the case gone to trial....

    Will he pivot (again) to job creation? Will there be another major, and unattainable, goal set forth tonight? Will President Barack Obama call on Congress to work together? Well Yeah. In fact, I have been told by very dependable sources, that Obamas teleprompter will randomly jumble together highlights from past speeches for tonights State of the Union. And, assuming the word corpsmen is spelled out phonetically, everything should run smoothly. Our cut-and-paste President is expected to underscore his desire to act imperially without the cumbersome process of representative government. He is expected to address the income inequality that got worse...
