    Obama starts Saint Patrick’s Day party days early with a toast not letting Russia downing a US spy drone by electronically hacking into it.

    In sharp contrast to Obama’s to love of parities, dining at greasy spoons for take outs and ordering tater tots off the White House menu, Michelle makes a shocking announcement.

    Michelle informs Americans she will enforce regulations on what Americans eat long after she leaves the White House.

    Michelle’s newest logo is “Let’s Cook” at home, in spite of the fact that she had a private cook long before she brought him to the White House, and her future plans to have a private cook for the rest of her life.

    OBAMA, BIDEN KICK OFF ST PATRICK’S DAY EARLY IN DC

    AP 3/14/2014

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Irish eyes were smiling on the White House a few days early this year.
    Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny kicked off the St. Patrick’s Day holiday at events across Washington Friday, including a meeting with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

    “I think it’s fair to say that there are very few countries around the world where the people-to-people ties are so strong,” said Obama, who donned a green tie and sprigs of four-leaf clovers on his lapel.

    The two leaders then headed to Capitol Hill for a lunch. Sitting alongside House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, Obama and Kenny were entertained by a two-man Irish band and a bagpiper.

    The celebrating continued at a White House reception Friday evening, where Obama noted the holiday was still a few days away.

    “None of you seem particularly bothered by this.
    At least you’ll have a weekend to recover,” he joked

    as the guests, many of whom wore shades of green and included Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., laughed.

    MICHELLE OBAMA: COOKING AT HOME HAS ITS ADVANTAGES

    WASHINGTON (AP) —

    Michelle Obama said Friday that a new focus of her anti-childhood obesity effort will be to help people cook more of their meals at home because they’re healthier.

    “We cannot walk away from this issue until obesity rates drop for children of every age and every background,” she said….

    “And that’s why I’m in this thing for the long haul, and I mean long after I leave the White House, because I believe in finishing what I start.”

    “Now is not the time to take our foot off the gas and congratulate ourselves on a job well done,” Mrs. Obama said. “Just the opposite. Now is the time to fight even harder, because we now know it is possible to make a difference on this issue. We know that our strategies are beginning to work.”

    Federal legislation and regulations are leading to changes in school breakfast and lunch programs, and are expected to bring an updated “Nutrition Facts” label to thousands of packaged products before the end of the decade.

    In her remarks, the first lady talked about working with supermarkets to distribute recipes and offer cooking demonstrations, with schools to develop the “home economics class of the future” to give students basic cooking skills and with chefs to get them to offer affordable cooking classes in their restaurants.

    Growing up, she said her mother kept a strict food budget, planned her meals weekly and shopped for groceries every Saturday.

  2. Mirage Politics

    As I read the ridiculous attempt by Joe Scarborough to dangle his feet into the political waters (and promote his book: http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfro.....id/559663/ ), I can’t help but wonder if people will be stupid enough to vote for him or people like him (yes).

    1. The Joe Scarborough liberal Republicans ride on the coat-tails of a Conservative Republican (Newt Gingrich) or general discontent of Washington.

    2. Joe Scarborough liberal Republicans don’t get a whole lot done, then dump the leader who got them there.

    3. Joe Scarborough liberal Republicans give democrats what they want as benevolent and kind majority members, and bask in the media’s love.

    4. Republicans voters get angry, sit on their hands a few election cycles, and democrats sweep into power with a new “mandate” to move the ball forward. (and they do!)

    5. Joe Scarborough liberal Republicans tell desperate voters to ignore Conservatives, Tea Party members, Libertarians, and vote for any and all Joe Scarborough liberal Republicans. “We don’t have time for internecine warfare, we must wrest power from the democrats!”

    6. Voters fall for this same old tired trick, and yet again Joe Scarborough liberal Republicans are back in power to get nothing accomplished, bullied by the media, and give the farm away to democrats as often as possible.

    It’s all a mirage. Watch what happens in the 2014, 2016 elections and the after-effects of each. 2010 was supposed to be a banner year for Tea Party members and Republicans in general, and look what happened? John Boehner is Captain Cave-In, and the majority of Republicans are liberal democrats by virtue of what they say and how they vote.

    Vote Tea Party/Libertarian or be prepared to live yet another cycle of dysfunction. Bookmark this page, and refer back to it from time to time, and know in your heart, nothing ever truly changes.

      if only nine people( supreme Court) can alter the American way of life,

      the four Mandarins,Boehne ,Pelos, Reid, and McConnell is even a more frightening thought.

      the people of this nation are no longer represent by either Party.

      the Nineteen Eighty-Four -like perpetual war is not anyway to govern.

      this November,”throw the Rascals out” .

    “Vote ‘Tea Party/Libertarian’ or be prepared to live yet another cycle of dysfunction”.

    Dysfuntion is the so called Tea Party/Libertarians that are so radical they refused to vote and allowed evil to flourish with 3 years to go. And a lot of conservatives will have died by then.

    Warren Buffet on tour to push non-physician assisted abortions.

    Planned Parenthood will make more money this way. I think they are already using PA’s. I talked to one that said she does everything and loves every aspect of it. And how it’s the less stressful medical job she’s ever had. I asked her if it’s because of the 8-5 hours it’s less stressful, and she said no. She told me it’s because she loves her work and that she does everything from counceling to performing the abortions.

    Warning of another Ft. Hood shooting was in news just days ago.
    How can this happen right intelligence knew of the threat.

    • canary

      Here is report FOX of “planned shooting” and now it’s occuring.

      two days ago
      FOX NewsEXCLUSIVE: The FBI is searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers,” FoxNews.com has learned…

      Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7.

      But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.

      Both the FBI and the 902d Military Intelligence Group at Fort Leavenworth are involved in the hunt…
      The portion obtained by FoxNews.com did not include Hassan’s photo or age…

      According to the alert:

      Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Ty Balzer confirmed the alert’s legitimacy, but referred questions to the FBI. Law enforcement sources familiar with the alert said it appeared to suggest that there may be others in addition to Booker who also might have expressed similar intentions to commit jihad against U.S. military installations…

      Here’s pic of the Muslim that threatened Jihad on Ft. Hood that the FBI is still looking for.

      Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, aka Booker, Sought by FBI For Planning ‘Ft. Hood-inspired jihad’
      By Zachary Stieber, Epoch Times | March 31, 2014

      The FBI and the U.S. Army are searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers.”

      The recruit, Booker, is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan.

      But he was discharged last week after law enforcement learned of his alleged plan, reported Fox News.

      It was titled “Planned Fort Hood-inspired Jihad against US Soldiers by Army Recruit” and issued “to inform and protect officers who may encounter this individual or others exhibiting the same aspirations.”

      Hassan’s Facebook page is full of postings about jihad, including this one on March 19:

      “Getting ready to be killed in jihad is a HUGE adrenaline rush!! I am so nervous. NOT because I’m scared to die but I am EAGER to meet my lord.”

      He also shared photos of Osama bin Laden.

      http://www.theepochtimes.com/n.....red-jihad/

      Here’s more photos. Why the FBI can’t post a better picture, but I guess they’d rather wait til after the fact and post grainy pictures of him with a backpack.

    From the Jerusalem Post: Senior minister says Israel can’t rely on US

    By Gil Hoffman – 03/20/2014

    Another senior minister in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s cabinet sharply criticized American foreign policy Tuesday, anonymously joining the open attack by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon.

    Speaking to journalists in the Knesset, the minister said the Americans’ handling of the crisis in Ukraine proved that Israel could no longer rely on the United States.

    He said it was clear to everyone that the US had never intended to take military action against the Russians.

    “The lesson of this crisis screams to the sky,” the minister said.

    “US foreign policy is collapsing all over the world.

    America showing weakness in Russia has implications on the Palestinian front. Israel cannot be Ukraine. It is ridiculous to hear about American guarantees for Israeli security, which would at best last a few weeks. When we’re in danger, they won’t be there to defend us. We must be the sole guarantors of Israeli security.”

    The source also accused the Americans of naively believing they could get Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to declare that Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people. He said American officials had wrongly promised the Palestinians that Israel would accept the release of Israeli-Arab terrorists.

    Home Front Defense Minister Gilad Erdan, who has criticized the policies of US president Barack Obama in the past turned down an opportunity to do so in an Army Radio interview Wednesday.
