Figures. White House Tipped Off AP Reporter Ahead of Michelle Obama’s Target Photo-Op

Another staged moment in the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama.
Michelle Obama just had to get out to Target to do a little shopping last week. But, before the shopping run the White House tipped off AP photographer Charles Dharapak so that he would be at the store to memorialize the moment.

Michelle Obama checks out at Target. That’s her assistant behind her carrying the bags. (AP)

At least she wore a shirt that is reportedly from Old Navy(?) and not a designer T-shirt like she wears out when she paints community centers.

    I know this is immaterial, but why does she have the assistant carry the bags while she pushes an empty cart?

  • MrGoodWench

    What ?
    No $ 700 shoes ?

  • Rush had fun with this. He noted that she had a bottle of Lysol.

    They failed to tell MoochL in her pre-shopping training that bags of groceries go INTO the cart, which is then pushed up to the car where upon the said bags are transferred to the car 😀

  • Billy Barty

    This is so pathetic I feel ashamed FOR them. Michelle, thought to be last seen on that grainy video in the forest, thought it’d be a great idea if she pretended to be one of the ‘common folk’ after she was busted wearing a $40k bracelet the other day she bought with her daily stipend.

    Can you IMAGINE calling up photographers to document your daring venture into a Target? Why was she wearing a disguise? LOL


  • Gride

    Who do they think they are fooling with this? Do they really think everyone is going to all of a sudden think Michelle “wookie” Obama is just a humble person who shops at target like the rest of middle America?

  • Craig

    lol… I was asking myself the same question.

  • I don’t know if I should laugh or burst out crying in sheer helplessness. We are stuck with these ignoramuses. But never again, I pray.

    Don’t she have handlers that could say that is not a good idea? Maybe that she treats them like “I know better than you …”, they just let her go and make a fool of herself and of course those of us who respect our America and it’s leaders.

  • Ariel

    Hmm… let me see, where have I seen this ruse done before?

    Now I remember! In the movie Soap Dish, whenever Sally Field’s character, Celeste Talbert, needed an emotional boost, she’d head to the mall where she’d be “recognized’ by her able assistant, played by Whoopie Goldberg. A “surprised’ Celeste would then be flocked by her adoring fans and compelled to sign autographs.

    Since Michelle has been under such fire lately for the expensive bling, outfits, and vacations, maybe the administration’s PR department figured it was time to show her out mingling with the little people. Funny I didn’t see the throngs of adoring fans, however.

    How very gouche of the little people to not want to bask in her glory, even though she’s the First Lady of the United States, not some aging soap actress hoping to recapture the glory of her past. I’m surprised the White House didn’t furnish their own rented mob of ‘adoring” fans for the photo op.

    “They love me… they really, really love ME!” – Celeste Talbert

    America is “just downright mean!” – Michelle Obama

  • Billy Barty

    wow. I just went to the first link above, and I’m speechless. Read some of the comments.

    They are, without irony or anything, saying things like “Michelle defines class!”, and “She’s our best first lady ever!”, and “She really is one of us!”

    NO JOKE. I may just drown myself in the toilet

  • Patty

    Shameful, disgusting, repulsive, ignorant, anyone have anything else to add, have at it.

    This truly is one of the most despicable acts of condensation and ridicule to us.

    Why not just give us the finger.

    Such a truly disgraceful first lady.

  • Patty

    The two of the Obama’s are playing us people. They have advisers who are telling them to be more like regular folk. Campaign season has just hit a new low. And to thing those who are so ignorant to say she is just great. love, her…BARFING NOW, BYE.

  • Patty


    RIGHT ON! EXACTLY. And they need to be out of our White House, Today. But we can only pray that November is a Slam Dunk for America and those two are official gone.

    I just knew Chewbacca would never shop at Target. Who let her in?

  • Showing her pitiful cleavage is disgusting. I might never step in a Target again or these images will come back to haunt me. Did the Secret Seviceman wearing his undershirt just remove his outer shirt?

    I shouldn’t feel this way but I’m losing respect for everyone surrounding the Obamas even the Secret Service.

  • Got Billy Ayers on Speed Dial

    Michelle has an ornery face going. Like “look at me suckas”

  • Granny

    As always, her shirt is at least 2 sizes too small. She has 26 assistants to the tune of over a million a year in salary. Does NOBODY know how to fit clothes properly?

    And don’t worry about the shirt from “Old Navy” (though I’m not sure I buy that). The price tag on that bag she’s carrying runs to a fair couple of weeks salary for most American families.

  • Rose

    Let her Harvest find her right speedily. And unexpectedly.

  • Whippet

    When she’s with her elitist snob friends she wears $40,000 diamond bracelets. When she wants to appear as the general public she wears a Nike baseball cap and cheap clothes. She’s showing us all who she is and who she thinks all of us are…..She and her sidekick are completely out of touch with reality and they don’t have a clue what we Americans are. But many of us always knew what they are….and the other idiots in the country have awakened to the knowledge that they elected an incompetent fool and a spiteful first lady.

  • Shale City Surfer

    I remember when a, “First Lady” was the epitomy of style, class and grace. Today however, just like the reasoning behind our failed public education system, the ‘first lady’ has dumbed down her wardrobe to the lowest common denominator, consequently failing (just like our High Screw-all graduates) to make the grade in the real world. Please, stop embarassing my country you slovenly, tacky, pretentious woman!

  • Whippet

    She’s ALWAYS in clothes too small and way too young for her age…she’s not a teenager. I often wonder if her stylists really hate her. You would think a stylist would dress her to emphasize her better qualities, even though there isn’t much to work with.
    But those big wide belts she wears under her boobs all the time. All wrong and they do more to accentuate than minimize her biggest asset…..if you know what I mean.

    Isn’t that the truth! And if she isn’t dressing like a teenager, she is trying desperately to channel a young Jackie Kennedy – who really did know how to dress and really was style setter in clothes that FIT LOL. There is nothing more pathetic than to see her trying so desperately to channel Jackie.

  • jimg

    There is no way this can surprise any of us.

  • Redwine

    Let’s see:
    Empty store – Some people placed as props
    Empty cart – So, why is she carrying bags? Can’t she put them in the cart?
    Assistant with more bags
    She wears shades inside the store
    She left home her $42,000 diamond bracelet bought with our money
    She’s gone slumming to pretend that she’s one of the “proletariat”
    She and he partner in crime are two monumental grifters
    She and he partner in crime need to yanked out of our house and thrown into prison

  • Redwine

    correction – “her” partner

  • Island Girl

    OMG I have no Lysol. I must go to Kmart . OMG there is a WH photographer!

  • ohiochili

    I am curious as to why she was buying Lysol…I always assumed there were people who cleaned the Royal Residence. I likewise assumed there was someone in charge of the cleaning staff who purchased supplies needed for spiffing up.

    I came to the conclusion that after this photo op, she knew she would be close to the dirty, unwashed peasants and maybe even some TEA party people, so a Lysol bath was in order. She wore clothing that was ok to burn afterward, too.

    The messiah promised transparency…yeppers, we can see right through them.

  • Highlander

    The article is about Michelle Obama in a Target store, but who is that guy in the picture?

  • The black community is so gullible and controled

    By the media. Went to a football game this Saturday.

    Two over fifty black males would not remove hats nor

    Place hands on heart for the national anthem.

    This is the entitlement trash of America.

    Michelle is such trash, Obama is lead filth.

    America is embarrassed by the filth they elected.

    Like Saddam Hussein’s staff::sure Sadddam we have WMD, here are photos.” Saddam:”this is falafael bakery”. Thus the staff lies.

    The only people being fooled by this glaringly obvious bit of political theater are foolish people. In other words, 2008 Obama voters who plan to do the same stupid thing next November. Shoot foot, learn nothing, shoot other foot.

    I couldn’t care any less about Mrs. Obama’s caboose, or her other physical negatives. The truly ugly part of this woman is on the inside. Says a lot (not at all complimentary) that Barry Obama would choose a foul termagant like her as a wife.

  • squeaky

    i would think the ap reporter showing up would be the issue settler. she wasn’t sneaking out for odds and ends – just showing the little people that they’re really not so different after all. was there an entourage parked outside the store? i don’t think they brought her from the white house in a 2003 chevy. i read a couple of the comments at politico and one actually thought she would be dressed better for a photo op. just rushing out for odds and ends = yup.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Um, she STILL has the CART with her but she and her assistant are CARRYING the bags? Huh, who does that? Oh that’s right, photo-op. Need to carry the bags to show Michelle is a real everyday woman (who also spent $10 million of taxpayer money on vacations alone last year – just like everyday women do).

    Another stunt pulled from their bag o’ re-election tricks. Pulling out all the stops, sending the First Wookie to Target and trying to make it appear like they are “just regular folks”. That’s transparent, alright. We see right through her fat a** (and that is an accomplishment!) and we see it for what it was – bogus.

  • Rubicon

    Yep, Michelle “Antoinette” Obama is just like the rest of us. Another day at Target with one of her many assistants to carry her bags (while she pushes an empty cart) and accompanied by an Associated Press photographer. That happens to me all the time…

  • Reggie

    This confirms what we already knew – that her Target run was just an Obama reelection campaign media stunt.

  • Mark

    More breads and circuses to distract the voting populace from the fact that her husband and the democrat party are busy trying to finish the job of fundamentally transforming the country, or in other words, wrecking the Founder’s vision of America and replacing it with another failed, Marxist dump.
    I bet FLOTUS was upset at having to lower herself to going into a Target and mixing with the little folks.
    She would rather mingle with stars, wear $42,000 diamond bracelets and eat $100 per a lb Kobe beef.

    Have you had enough hope and change yet America?

  • Visigoth

    they ( her and Obama, his administration ) are trying to change their image for the upcoming elections. Note the protestors at Wall Street ( Van Jones and co. ).., they are lefties protesting the evils of Wall street and Banks ( I am not sure what exactly they protest against, but it has to do with money ).

    Michelle has the reputation of flaunting ( expensive shoes, gowns, etc.. ) thus, a photo op at Target to show ‘ she is frugal like everyone else ‘ .. ( a blatant and fake attempt but what else would you expect from these people ).

Why is she pushing a cart when she is caring her bags. Michelle, we are on to you, and whatever you do, it will be a scam. You are labeled Enemy #1, who has taken our money, lived large like some damn Queen and you’re a damn LIAR! You are NO lady, just a thief who lost their law license. You are Cooked!!!

  • tinat

    reading everyone’s nasty comments from start to finish is like a game of telephone. Ya’ll can’t even get your talking points correct. The 40,000.00 dollar bracelet (which was actually multiple bracelets) have become $400,000.00 bracelets. Real information, not hate, will set you free.

    Something for you all to ponder–from the “Politico” link above, it stated, “the first lady after she made an unannounced, midafternoon trip Thursday to the mega-retailer in Alexandria, Va.”

    Read more:

    Why did she go to “Alexandria, VA” Target–across the Potomac River, when there is a brand new Target–a little less than 3 miles from the WH in the DC neighborhood of Friendship Hts? The Alexandria store is 5mi away, requires driving over the 14th St. Bridge (which is a major/extremely busy thoroughfare anytime of day) and the Jeff Davis Hwy is also a heavily traveled road–did the SS stop/block traffic on these roads? Why was it necessary for her to go to “that” Target for her “photo op”?

    Yah, I thought about the bracelet, too, when I saw this.
    And the ten mil she spent on vacations.

    (White House Dossier) — President and Mrs. Obama celebrated their anniversary at one of the Washington area’s most fashionable and expensive eating establishments last night,Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, Va….

    Via Keith Koffler who makes this dead-on observation:
    You know, the Obamas are wealthy people. If they want to eat at places where appetizers start at $16, fine. It would be nice if they set an example during hard economic times and reined in their spending, of course, but whatever.


  • Fool me once “Shame on You”…

    Didn’t people observe when the photo was first released there were no other shoppers in the store?

    Did we really need the media to advise us they entire event was staged?

    $42,000 of diamond bangles around Michelle’s wrist at a democrat fundraiser – obviously she was attempting to counteract that publicity.

  • chb

    I did not need to read that this was a STAGED PHOTO OP. After taking ten million dollars in vacations this year and living the lifestyles of the ultra rich and famous (and flaunting it), the campaign team dreamed this up to counter the image of the Obama’s as arrogant people who are using the white house to flaunt their wealth and status.

    Just remember at a cost of thousands of dollars ‘Mooch’elle and Barry left the same day on two seperate AF 1 flights to travel to Martha’s Vineyard so Moochelle could get an early start on her extravagant shopping routine there. These people are shameless…and think we are stupid. Obviously some of ARE STUPID because millions of people voted for this empty suit socialist and his ‘movin on up….to the top’ wife.

    I’ve boycotted Target and shopped at Walmart ever since I saw Palin shop there during the campaign. No photo op for Palin – Trig needed diapers, she stopped and bought them. That’s the difference between the first lady and a LADY.

    There should be a literacy test for prospective voters. If you can’t read at the third grade level, if you can’t identify 3 candidates for president, if you can’t recognize the definitions of the terms “debt”, “deficit” and “inflation”, if you can’t match 3 of the amendments in the Bill of Rights to their intended purposes, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

    We don’t let 5th-graders vote because they’re not educated or responsible enough. But what about adults who are worse than 5th-graders?

    That’s how we get a president like Obama – and a first woman like the on depicted above. We allow idiots to vote.


    Can you say “TRAILER TRASH”?

  • Rico

    What possible reason could Moochelle have for going to Target, other than as a ludicrous publicity stunt? Is she there to buy clothes? I don’t think so. She wouldn’t use Target clothes to wipe off the soles of her $700 designer shoes. Is she there to pick up cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, pots and pans, motor oil, or votive candles? Somehow I doubt it. I suspect that whatever was purchased was tossed into the nearest dumpster as soon as the cameras were turned off, or if she were feeling particularly generous, maybe she gave it to one of her servants. Come to think of it, the shopping was probably for the schlub who was trailing behind her and who was made to reimburse Moochie after they left the store.

Ferguson in order to stop the Florida recount, failing to pursue Osama bin Laden in Tora Bora and leaving Obama to finish the job of killing him etc etc etc. HOWEVER, I never heard any of the citizens you call “libs” mock or criticize Laura Bush. Other than having bad taste in men, I thought she was a fine first lady. Conservatives know no shame. And shame on all of you for attacking the president’s wife.

It’s not like Lady M’s on an official state visit to a foreign country or anything. Plus, it easily accommodates our morning supply of life-saving anti-blood sugar crash meds.

    So here’s the narrative: we just ran out to pick up a few necessary household items that staff never remembers to pick up, and wouldn’t you know it: AP photographer Charles Dharapak, just happened to be there too, picking up a few items of his own for his ever expanding portfolio.

    Here’s an idea, Michelle: be honest, and be who you are, and if that won’t help you with the public than maybe you don’t belong in power. But I won’t hold my breath for that one.

    Sorry you missed me, #203. Defending the “organ grinder” and “ghetto” comments on here? No, I won’t do that because it proves my point that opposition to the Obamas, for many people, is racially based. They hate blacks and minorities or at least use race as their reflexive response to everything they dislike. Why would I need to defend the First Lady going on a shopping trip, even if it is a PR stunt? Laura Bush and, before her, Barbara Bush, used to shop all the time in public. The stores were closed off — properly — to avoid security issues for a Secret Service protectorate. Nancy Reagan spent lavish amounts of money shopping for clothes and even consulted astrologers. I couldn’t care less. Laura Bush caused a fatal car accident as a teenager. Even Mrs. Obama’s worst critics haven’t been able to dig up anything similar to that. No, I’m not here to debate with a bunch of neocon fanatics, I’m here to enjoy the freak show of racism and hatred that any news surrounding our president seems to invoke in you guys. I’ve had my fill of bigoted commentary and I’m leaving to let you neocons engage in mutual self-gratification about how much you dislike the Obamas. Enjoy!

Are you a queer or a transvesite who has become unsure of its choice? Are you a welfare recipient? Or are you just a run of the mill negro on the democrat plantation? I can understand how any of these could be cause for discomfort on your part.

    Well no matter, we do not nave time to feel sorry for you. We feel sorry for this great country and the damage that you, Barry & Moochelle Obama, and the rest of the regime’s white-hating administration are doing to it.

    The biggest racists that I’m aware of in this country are in the Obama administration, and this fact is becoming more and more apparent. Despite the massive cover-up and fraud that is the media’s coverage of anything Obama his approval ratings are sinking through 30’s. This makes me believe that this fact, that racists occupy the WH, is sinking in with more and more folks. Perhaps even with a few previously brain-dead and hopelessly misled blacks such as yourself.

    Maybe this awakening process, which I can also imagine to be quite painful, is part of your discomfort as well? You should know that I have a 15 year old son who has been raised without a racist bone in his body and he would not even consider that the color of some kid’s skin would make a difference in anything except for libs and leftisis like Barry and Moochelle out there constantly stirring the race pot.

I am waiting for someone to dig up the picture of her in Angela Davis-type garb. You know the one in fatigues with the Rambo style ammo belts and AK-47. When you consider her friendship with Bernadette Dorn at the Chicago Law Firm, you just know that they are out there. Just a matter of time before they show up.

    #212. It’s a PR stunt, similar to those engaged in by the families of Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, George HW Bush, Clinton, GW Bush and Obama. I have no opinion on it. I don’t care. She went to a store, bought some things, and a press pool photographer was there to capture it. It’s similar to any of the current presidential candidates visiting diners in New Hampshire and Iowa and shaking hands and eating local fare. What is entertaining are comments such as #23 and #47, which are just plain funny, and comments such as #149, #91, #70 and #81, which perpetuate racist stereotypes. It will be a great day for America when Obama is re-elected, not only because he is the right man for the job, but it will enrage the racists among you even more. Not all conservatives are racists but nearly all racists are conservative.

You see Michelle represents Wall Street; smugly taking off with the goods while wearing shades to hide their identity, while the empty cart represents the empty coffers caused by our increasing debt, and the assistant is a double-metaphor for taxpayers being left holding the bags, as well as illegals being the only ones to afford buying groceries, as they are not burdened by the tax situation.

    A couple of things: #1. When you have ‘no class’ it is impossible to hire enough help to dress you and send you shopping or out to do anything of value. #2. As my Liberal friends tell me when I ask what they like about the Obamas: “I am so Happy we elected a Black President”! So just relax and enjoy; and for sure do not try to figure it out.

    Are you really sad? Or are you really infuriated. Be true to yourself, if you are going to judge others. Also, American is spelled with a capital “A”, so I’m not sure you’ve ever felt proud to be an “american”. So what? – if you are white – do you think that gives you carte blanche to judge and criticize others [no pun intended]. Do you see the hypocrisy in what you are saying?

    Well they purposely tried to manipulate the press and the people, trying to get rid of the elitist image she portrays. Her heiness takes a staff of at least 30 on every one of her frequent and luxurious vacations not counting sercurity and we are lead to believe she just popped in Target. The AP photog didn’t take a picture of her getting into the half million dollar limo and SUV”s of the Secrect Service. Just to get some lysol. Gimme a break! What if AP leaked the story and Al Quaida got wind of this. Al Quaida would say release all the prisoners in Cuba or she dies. Most of America’s response would be Keep her dumb fat ass. She no matter how many staged photo ops she and the White House will never shake the reality of her Marie Antoinette image. Let them eat cake.

    As you can gather from many of the anti-racial commentary – political correctness has subverted free speech. I’m all for free speech. What harm is there in a little dialogue, whether you agree or disagree with the commentary. What a boring place this world would be if they killed all of the racists or free-thinkers.

    Ahh, but I know some of you are saying – yeah, well Jack- you attacked that #244 comment – I did that because the comment was hypocritical. If someone goes and attacks something, stating racism, and uses their own racial “supremacy” as a form of argument, I will point this out.

    This is the strangest photo op I think I’ve seen involving one of these self-absorbed couple.

The original plan was to go to a Walmart but Queenie stopped those plans before they could get going. Queenie: “Not me! Not in a Walmart! I’m the Queen of these United States. I’m not proud of them but I am the Queen! I’ll get some disease if I stoop that low. My subjects would never forgive me if I went into one of those dirty, demeaning places.”

They have the designer expensive clothes brought to them to choose usually. If she does really go out and shop everything is shut down anywhere near those stores.

  • shellrim

    Excellent comments, not much left for me to say. What hit my eye first was the empty cart and she’s carrying the bags – “look, I’m one of you, I even carry my own bags. ” lol. No brains. She should’ve noticed that the cart was empty – plain common sense. Also, her assistant carries non Target bags. It’s highly unlikely that all of them had the Target design turned to the other side. The red is hard to miss but nowhere to be seen on the those bags. They also seem small for target bags. However, the one thing I just have to add is that she barely ever wears a bra. A first lady like a teenager, bra less. My 13 yr. old with little to show would go without a bra. Class can rarely be acquired. It is inbred.

Have to wonder where Malignant and Sasquatch were. She heads on over to Target and no commotion whatsoever as she walks into a local store. She strolls down the aisles and casually checks out her Lysol and whatnot. No one notices the 200 Secret Service guys who converged on the store before and during her outing. Yep, I believe it.

    Many of you probably remember when our first lady had to have “organic” tuscan kale back in September of 2009. It took over 35 vehicles from the Secret Service and D.C. police. They closed down H steet, Vermont Avenue, two lanes of I street and an entrance to the McPherson Square Metro Station. They swept the area with bomb sniffing dogs and installed magnetometers in the middle of the street. The had sharp shooters on top of trucks and put up barricades to keep people out.

    Now the idiots in the White House want us to believe that the woman who couldn’t walk one block to the Farmer’s Market in 2009 and had to take an entire entourage suddenly goes to Target (or anywhere else for that matter) without her normal small army. PLEASE!!!

    This disgrace of a first lady who preaches to us about what we eat and then serves 1600 calorie ribs at a WH dinner thinks she can convince anyone she’s like us (who by the way would no longer allow the menus to be made public by the press after her hypocrisy was exposed.) A woman who made $150,000 a year until her husband became a U.S. Senator and then got a promotion to almost $400,000 a year because she was such a hard worker???????? The woman who couldn’t travel with her husband on Air Force One but had to take her own group of jets to Martha’s Vineyard a few hours later for her sixth vacation of 2010. Who had their dog flown out on a separate jet the trip before that. The woman who said “American was a mean place”. Who said only after her husband got the Dem nomination for President “for the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country.”

    I’m so looking forward to January 20th, 2013 when I’ll finally have a first spouse in the White House I can be proud of after four years of being disheartened, deeply disappointed and disgusted by who we have now.

It’s been fun slumming with the racist Republicans and a few principled conservatives. Your hatred of the Obamas will only destroy yourselves, as you will no doubt find out next November when the president is re-elected with a comfortable margin. I’m actually in favor of a Constitutional amendment allowing teabagger states to secede from the union. I’d rather see you guys have a few states where you can impose Christian sharia law, build barbed-wire fences around it and play with your guns without disturbing the rest of us. Some of the folks harbor fantasies of the good old days when “Negroes” knew their place and other minorities worked as bellboys or railroad construction workers. However, you proud Aryans are about to become a minority yourselves. Pray to your God that the treatment you receive as a minority is less harsh than that you meted out over the past 400 years or so. God bless!

    This is awesome! I applaud and encourage Barry and Michele to keep dumping these truck loads of condesending crap on the country. Every time they pull a bone headed act like this it just pushes them farther off the map with the far right, the right, the center right, the center and the left of center… Keep it up! Maybe Michele and the girls can have a garage sale at 1600 Penn. Ave. next weekend… Barry can drive the Beast over to the local Jiffy Lube and use a coupon for an oil change… Go for it!

    Holder needs a special presecutor to start a forensic acounting of the money and then we can start the impeachment of this criminal. The next time we want hope and change, I hope we at least look at his resume.

    And don’t worry. They will put a muzzle on Michelle as the election gets closer to prevent any of the embarrasing “I have never been proud of my country” comments. I was never ashamed of my country until they elected this clown.

    The report you link to does not say the photographer was tipped off by the White House, despite your headline. It says he was “tipped off,” period. And it is not attributed. Lots of people, including local cops and the store management, could have tipped off a photographer who has local sources.

  • D.K.

    Why doesn’t she shop at the Goodwill Store or Salvation Army store, like I do. That’s where I buy most of my clothes, because that’s what I can afford. It makes me sick that I pay taxes so she can buy designer clothes and jewelry. She could take that money and give it to the Salvation Army or The Red Cross and let them do something worth wild with it! America got what they voted for….Hollywood! I can still stand proud though and say I didn’t vote for him!!!

    Now if she had those items sent in care packages to soldiers that would have been a nice touch…too late now. It would just look too fake if her handlers were to suddenly remember to tell the reporters that MOOchie had been visiting and really wanted to participate.

    Oh, wait, ‘too fake’ is not a part of the Obama’s vocabulary, is it???

    And I wake up every morning and thank God that Barack Obama, our first legally elected president since 1996, and his beautiful and intelligent wife, are in the White House and will be there until 2017. Imagine the catastrophe if John McCain and his know-nothing running mate were in the White House. I also pray that at least some of you come to see that hatred and racism will bring nothing to you but even more misery.
    Ron Paul has absolute lunatic views but he is sincere and principled. Jon Huntsman seems like a man of integrity and who responded when his President called upon him to serve. The rest of the GOP field seems determined to out-stupid their way to the bottom of the heap, i.e. the teabagger movement. How many non-whites support the Tea Party? Two or three nationwide?
    And with the comments calling the First Lady a gorilla, it seems that number will plunge even more. You teabaggers are being used by corporate interests to fatten their own pockets while you remain blissfully ignorant, hoping that your high school diploma will be enough to make it to retirement age, at which point your movement will have abolished Social Security so you’ll be homeless and with no health care. Just pull yourself up by your bootstraps then and see how successful you.

    Obama saw his 39% job approval rating and sent “Blackie O” out on a photo op as he is completely out of ideas and no one is buying into his empty speeches and bumper sticker slogans now that he has shown to be exactly what conservatives said he would be, pre-election: Inept, incompetent, inexperienced and not capable of doing the job.

    Blaming others for your incompetence isn’t leadership, especially when you had two years of a Dem House and Senate to work with.

    The Dems are probably begging Hillary to run in 2012 as this disaster is incapable of running a paper route. He would likely screw that up, lose most of his customers, blame others, and then demand a raise.

    These Grifters make the Clinton’s look honest.

    Another staged photo op, just like her WH “garden”

    Did they photograph her getting into a Limo and all the Secret Service agents nearby?

    Or does she go to Target “incognito” on a regular basis, and an AP photog just happened to be there at the same time?

    4) Ending the Bush tax cuts?

    6) Lowering the levels of the oceans?
    7) Lowering unemployment?
    8) Creating Millions of Jobs?
    9) Transparency?
    10) Fiscal Responsibility?

    Instead, we get 500 Million dollar photo ops of ventures known to fail, Spending Trilions of our dollars on failed social experiments, a fake WH garden, a fake Target shopping trip, expensive vacations, Parties at the WH with Hollywood celebs, Playing Golf as often as possible, campaigning and flying around the country, engaging in crony capitalism, living large on our dime instead of leading by example and not spending lavishly on himself and his wife and his illegal alien Aunt, who has moved into the WH and been fast-tracked to citizenship, another illegal alien relative, driving around drunk, and other shenanigans.

    And the claim that the “Bill Ayers” that has visited the WH numerous times is a different “Bill Ayers” than the former domestic terrorist that just happened to live in the same neighborhood he did back in Chicago.

    We got exactly what we thought we would get – a crooked Chicago politician who should have been vetted but wasn’t, especially after the shady land deal with convicted Felon Tony Rezko.

    I guess some people still believe BS over actions and facts.

    What will Obama run on in 2012?
    Lies about how he saved the economy?
    How you’re a racist if you don’t vote for him? (He already does that thru his proxies)
    And yes, I’m sure there will be rioting, or as the media will call it “civil disobedience” when he is booted out of office after one term.

    Of course Michelie Mah Belle had to do this photo op! Just a few days ago she was swooning over the $46K diamond bracelets and that Holy Smokes expensive dress she was wearing at this or that public function — and that scene was caught on camera and the photo became a liability which had to be countered by more propaganda photos — to the effect that Michelle Mah Belle is actually a soccer mom. At one level, I don’t like her. At another level, I wouldn’t blame her for looking at OhBummer and thinking, “Crap. What was I thinking?”

  • sucks2bu

  • Osamas Pajamas

    Poster “wayner”— you assert that at least 90% of the paleface crackers posting here are racist pigs. So let’s see. “Paleface cracker” is a racist epithet, applied to people whom you do not know. And what kind of statistical analysis did you perform to arrive at 90%? Just being critical of a black person is not evidence of “racism” — and we are up to our necks with black racists, right now, anywa, by the way — the OhBummer Wrecking Crew [the admin] is full of them.

  • Osamas Pajamas


    The Democrats have this “enemies list” — denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Terrorist!” and you can be a “Dictator” and you can be a “Hostage-taker!” and you can “Wear a tinfoil hat!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “Teabagger!” — a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be “Uneducated” and you can be an “Extremist!” You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Flake!” and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be “Unenlightened!” and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” — although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist — either official, or self-appointed.

    Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

    So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things – and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scum — by The Friends of All Mankind — by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian thugs — by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.

  • Osamas Pajamas


    OhBummer is a b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers. Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled. He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system — the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers — and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House — and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.

    And — now widely seen for what he is — the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him — and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” — they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables.

    He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious — a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk.

    He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug.

    He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden — indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks.

    He declares himself the post-racial leader — “Let me be clear!” he intones — and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk.

    He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda — and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through. Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer — “The Mistake of ‘08” — the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc — the King of The Republic of Lies — and America’s first and last Arab president. Now count your fingers.

    @HMMMMMMMM, specifically comment #148, this educational moment is going to be lost on you, however I will still make the effort for all those who are not lost causes drowning in the cherry kool-aide.

    Do you actually know who the KKK is comprised of? I seriously doubt you know anything about history or you would have chosen your words more carefully. Read and learn.

    The Democrat Party and the Ku Klux Klan: Aside from the multiple Klan members who have served in elected capacity within the high ranks of the Democrat Party, the political party itself has a lengthy but often overlooked history of involvement with the Ku Klux Klan. Though it has been all but forgotten by the media, the Democrat National Convention of 1924 was host to one of the largest Klan gatherings in American history. Dubbed the “Klanbake convention” at the time, the 1924 Democrat National Convention in New York was dominated by a platform dispute surrounding the Ku Klux Klan. A minority of the delegates to the convention attempted to condemn the hate group in the party’s platform, but found their proposal shot down by Klan supporters within the party. As delegates inside the convention voted in the Klan’s favor, the Klan itself mobilized a celebratory rally outside. On July 4, 1924 one of the largest Klan gatherings ever occurred outside the convention on a field in nearby New Jersey. The event was marked by speakers spewing racial hatred, celebrations of their platform victory in the Democrat Convention, and ended in a cross burning.

    A common attack upon conservatives and republicans by the ultra left is to engage in what has come to be known as “playing the race card” but is more accurately described as racial McCarthyism. Hardly a day goes by without a member of the far left wing falsely accusing conservatives of racism, bigotry, and a wide array of similar nasty things. They are not only dishonest, but they often border on the absurd, as in NAACP leader and hyper bigot Julian Bond’s recent implication to his organization that Bush administration officials supported confederate slavery. Amazingly, Bond’s statements went without condemnation from the radical Democrat party or others in his organization.

    Not surprisingly, in all the lies and accusations of racism by the radical left wing, the truth becomes distorted not only about the Republicans but also the Democrats who make these accusations themselves. For instance, you may or may not have heard Democrat Senator Robert Byrd’s outburst of racist bigoted slurs, more specifically the “n-word,” on national television in March of 2001. Amazingly, this incident of blatant racism on national television drew barely a peep from the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Julian Bond, Mary Frances Berry, or any of the other ambulance chasers who purport themselves to be the leaders of the civil rights movement. In contrast, the main source of well deserved criticism for Byrd’s racist outburst came not from any of the so called leaders of the civil rights movement but from from Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey (source). The race hustlers Jackson, Mfume et al turned a blind eye towards this act of racism by one of their own party, at most issuing an unpublicized slap on the wrist, or, as was more often the case, making not a peep. But where the race hustlers turn a blind eye and spew their lies, it is up to conservatives to set the record straight with the truth.

    In response to the growing practice of racial McCarthyism by prominent left wing Democrats, it is necessary to expose the truth about the Democrat Party’s record on Civil Rights:

    I. Acts of Bigotry by Prominent Democrats and Leftists:
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Franklin Roosevelt, the long time hero and standard bearer of the Democrat Party, headed up and implemented one of the most horrible racist policies of the 20th Century – the Japanese Internment Camps during World War II. Roosevelt unilaterally and knowingly enacted Japanese Internment through the use of presidential Executive Orders 9066 and 9102 during the early years of the war. These orders single-handedly led to the imprisonment of an estimated 120,000 law abiding Americans of Japanese ancestry, the overwhelming majority of them natural born second and third generation American citizens. Countless innocents lost their property, fortunes, and, in the case of an unfortunate few, even their lives as a result of Roosevelt’s internment camps, camps that have been accurately described as America’s concentration camps. Perhaps most telling about the racist nature of Roosevelt’s order was his clearly expressed intention to apply it almost entirely to Japanese Americans, even though America was also at war with Germany and Italy. In 1943, Roosevelt wrote regarding concerns of German and Italian Americans that they t0o would share in the fate of the interned Japanese Americans, noting that “no collective evacuation of German and Italian aliens is contemplated at this time.” Despite this assertion, Roosevelt did exhibit his personal fears about Italian and German Americans, and in his typical racist form he used an ethnic stereotype to make his point. Expressing about his position on German and Italian Americans during World War II, Roosevelt stated “I don’t care so much about the Italians, they are a lot of opera singers, but the Germans are different. They may be dangerous.”

    Roosevelt also appointed two notorious segregationists to the United States Supreme Court. Roosevelt appointed South Carolina segregationist Democrat Jimmy Byrnes to the court. Roosevelt later made Byrnes a top advisor, where the segregationist earned the nickname “assistant president.” Byrnes was Roosevelt’s second choice behind Harry Truman for the VP nod in his 1944 reelection bid. Roosevelt also appointed segregationist Democrat Senator Hugo Black of Alabama to the court. Black was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan with a notorious record of racism himself.

    Hugo Black: A former Democrat Senator from Alabama and liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice appointed by FDR, Hugo Black had a lengthy history of hate group activism. Black was a member of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920’s and gained his legal fame defending Klansmen under prosecution for racial murders. In one prominent case, Black provided legal representation to Klansman Edwin Stephenson for the hate-induced murder of a Catholic priest in Birmingham. A jury composed of several Klan members acquited Stephenson of the murder, reportedly after Black expressed Klan gestures to the jury during the trial. In 1926 Black sought and won election as a Democrat to the United States Senate after campaigning heavily to Klan membership. He is said to have told one Klan audience “I desire to impress upon you as representatives of the real Anglo-Saxon sentiment that must and will control the destinies of the stars and stripes, that I want your counsel.” In the Senate Black became a stauch supporter of the liberal New Deal initiatives of FDR and a solid opponent of civil rights legislation, including a filibuster of an anti-lynching measure. Black led the push for several New Deal programs and was a key participant in FDR’s court packing scandal. Roosevelt appointed Black, a loyal ally, to the U.S. Supreme Court. During the Senate confirmation of Black’s nomination, the issue of his strong Klan affiliations caused a public controversy over his appointment. Following the confirmation Roosevelt claimed ignorance of Black’s Klan past, though this claim was dubious at best. Black’s first Senate election, which occurred with Klan support, had been covered nationally a decade earlier in 1926. Black’s Klan affiliations were a well known part of his political background and recieved heavy coverage in the newspapers at the time of his appointment. On the court, Black became a liberal stalwart. He also continued his career of supporting racism by authoring the opinion in favor of FDR’s Japanese internment program in the infamous Korematsu ruling.

    Senator Robert Byrd, D-WV: Byrd is a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and is currently the only national elected official with a history in the Klan, a well known hate group. Byrd was extremely active in the Klan and rose to the rank of “Kleagle,” an official Klan membership recruiter. Byrd once stated that he joined the Klan because it was effective in “promoting traditional American values” (Source). Byrd’s choice of words speak volumes about his bigotry considering the fact that the Klan is a notorious hate group, and the racist “values” it promotes are anything but American. One of the earliest criticisms of Byrd’s Klan ties came in 1952 when he was running for Congress. Byrd responded by claiming that he had left the Klan in 1943 while noting that “(d)uring the nine years that have followed, I have never been interested in the Klan.” Byrd was lying, however, as he engaged in correspondence with a Klan Imperial Wizard long after he claims to have ended his ties with the hate group.

    In a letter to the Klan leadership (Source) dated 3 years after he purported to have ended his ties with them, Byrd wrote “I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state. The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia.” Byrd continued his racist diatribe “It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union” and followed with a request for assistance from the hate group’s leadership in “rebuilding the Klan in the realm” of West Virginia.

    Byrd’s racism extends far beyond his Klan membership. In a letter he wrote on the subject of desegregating the armed forces, Byrd escalated his racist rhetoric to an appalling level. In the letter, Byrd vowed that he would never fight in an integrated armed services noting “(r)ather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds” (Source).

    Byrd’s racist opinions have shown their ugly face in his behavior in the Senate. Byrd led the filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and, according to the United States Senate’s own website, filibustered the legislation to the bitter end appearing as one of the last opponents to the act before a coalition of civil rights proponents led by Republican Minority Leader Everett Dirksen invoked cloture so that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 could pass. At the time, Byrd was in the the midst of a 14 hour and 13 minute filibuster diatribe against the key civil rights measure (Source). Throughout the 1960’s, Byrd was was one of the staunchest opponents to civil rights in the U.S. Senate. Byrd’s racist history drew attention recently when he went on national television and repeatedly used the n-word, one of the most vicious racial slurs in existence, in an appearance on national television. Byrd uttered the slur on Fox News Sunday with Tony Snow on March 5, 2001. Despite the appalling nature of the remark, it went largely ignored by the mainstream media and the self appointed “civil rights” leadership. Whereas a similar remark by anyone other than a leading Democrat Senator would assuredly prompt the likes of Jesse Jackson to assemble protest rallies demanding resignations, the Jackson crowd was eerily quiet following Byrd’s remarks, issuing only low key suggestions that Byrd should avoid making such bigoted remarks.

    In a sickening recognition of Byrd’s appalling political career, the national Democrat party has done nothing but embrace the West Virginia senator with leadership roles and practically every honor imaginable. To this very day the Democrats call former Klansman turned U.S. Senator Robert Byrd the “conscience of the Senate.” They have embraced him as their party’s central pillar in all ways possible. Byrd has been reelected more times than any other Democrat senator, has served as a Democrat in Congress, a Democrat State Senator in West Virginia, and a Democrat State Delegate in West Virginia. Democrats have made repeatedly elected Byrd into their national party leadership and into the U.S. Senate leadership. He became secretary of the Senate Democrat Caucus in 1967, and Senate Democrat Whip in 1971. The Democrats elected former Klansman Byrd as their Senate Majority Leader from 1977-1980 and as their Senate Minority Leader from 1981-1986. Byrd was again elected Democrat Majority Leader from 1987-1988. Democrats made Byrd the chairman of the powerful Appropriations Committee and President Pro Tempore of the Senate from 1989 until the Republicans won control of the Senate in November 1994. Following the defection of Jim Jeffords in June 2001, the Democrats again made Byrd the chairman of the Appropriations Committee and elected him to the highest ranking office in the Senate: the President Pro Tempore, a position which also put this former Klansman 4th in line for the presidency. Byrd lost his position when Republicans retook the Senate in late 2002, but continues to serve as one of the highest ranking members of the Democrat Senate leadership today.

    Senator Ernest Hollings, D-SC: Hollings is liberal Democrat Senator from South Carolina who is also notorious for his use of racial slurs. He rose out of the Democrat Party’s segregationist wing in the 1960’s as governor of South Carolina. While in office as governor, Hollings personally led the opposition to lunch counter integration in his state. The New York Times reported on March 17, 1960 that then-governor Hollings “warned today that South Carolina would not permit ‘explosive’ manifestations in connection with Negro demands for lunch-counter services.” According to the article, Hollings gave a speech in which he “challenged President Eisenhower’s contention that minorities had the right to engage in certain types of demonstrations” against segregation. In the speech Hollings described the Republican president as “confused” and asserted that Eisenhower had done “great damage to peace and good order” by supporting the rights of minorities to protest segregation at the lunch counters.

    Governor Hollings’ support for segregation continued throughout his term and included his attendance at a July 23, 1961 meeting of segregationist Democrats to organize their opposition to the civil rights movement. Hollings was one of four governors in attendence, all of them Democrats. The others included rabid segregationists Orval Faubus of Arkansas and Ross Barnett of Mississippi. The New York Times reported on the meeting, noting that among the strategies discussed were using the segregationist White Citizens Council organization to mobilize political opposition to desegregation.

    In more recent years Hollings, a senior Democrat senator, has made disparaging racial remarks and slurs against minorities. Senator Hollings, who was a contender for his party’s presidential nomination in 1984, blamed his defeat in the primaries by using a racial slur against Hispanics. After losing the Iowa Straw Poll, Hollings stated “You had wetbacks from California that came in here for Cranston,” referring to one of his opponents, Alan Cranston. A few years later Hollings reportedly used the slur “darkies” to derogatorily refer to blacks. He also once disparagingly referred to the Rainbow PUSH Coalition as the “Blackbow Coalition,” and called former Senator Howard Metzenbaum, who is Jewish, “the Senator from B’nai B’rith.” Hollings gained international criticism for his remarks about the African Delegation to the 1993 Geneva GATT conference, where he crudely remarked “you’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.” Hollings was also the Governor of South Carolina who raised the confederate flag over the state capitol in the early 1960’s in what was considered at the time to be an act of defiance to civil rights. The press ignored Hollings and his role in the flag issue at the same time the political correctness police were smearing George W. Bush during his campaign after Bush correctly remarked that the flag was a state issue to be decided upon by South Carolina and not the national government.

    Jesse Jackson: Jackson was the featured prime time speaker at the 2000 Democrat Convention. Jackson has a history of using anti-Semitic slurs and derogatorily calling New York City “Hymietown.” Jackson, a prominent self proclaimed “civil rights leader,” is himself guilty of the same bigotry he dishonestly purports to oppose.

    Dan Rather: Rather, the well known television anchor for CBS, is also a liberal Democrat who has spoken at fundraisers for the Democrat party in the past. The notoriously left wing reporter appeared on the Don Imus radio show on July 19, 2001 where he was interviewed about his long term refusal to cover the Gary Condit (D-CA) scandal involving an affair with a missing intern despite the scandal’s national prominence. Rather noted on the air that CBS had basically forced him to cover the story that was on every other network and on the front page of all the major newspapers, all this after Rather avoided it for months. Rather stated on the air, refering to CBS, that “they got the Buckwheats” and made him cover the Condit scandal. The term “Buckwheat” is considered an offensive racial stereotype that stems from an easily frightened black character named “Buckwheat” on the Little Rascals comedies. It is widely regarded as a racial epithet and has long been condemned as an offensive stereotype by several civil rights organizations. In several past incidents (see here and here) the use of the epithet “Buckwheat” has recieved condemnation by the NAACP, Al Sharpton and other left wing organizations. These left wing organizations and personalities have demanded that other media personalities be fired over using the epithet, and even staged a protest at a school over the mere allegation that the racist stereotype had been used by a teacher. Yet these same liberal groups have, to date, remained completely silent now that one of their own, Dan Rather, is guilty of using the same offensive racial stereotype they have condemned elsewhere on a national radio show. It’s just more proof of how the left wingers who cry the loudest with accusations of racism against others turn a blind eye when somebody of their own left wing ideology is the undeniable culprit of a blatantly racist act or statement!

    Cragg Hines: Hines is one of the most rabidly partisan DC based Democrat editorial columnists to work for a major newspaper, and he makes no attempts to hide it. To Hines, pro-lifers are “neanderthals,” as is often the case with those who differ in opinion with him. Ironically, Hines, a columnist who regularly touts himself as an enlightened progressive, is also known for racial remarks and religious intolerance. He attacked Senator Jesse Helms in an August 26, 2001 editorial with not only the usual liberal name calling, but also with a racial epithet. Hines used the racial slur “cracker” to attack Helms. He used the epithet not only within the article’s text, but he even included it in the piece’s title. In a sense of heavy irony, Hines’ article accused Helms of bigotry for, among other things, opposing liberal policies like affirmative action. He didn’t seem to object to himself for his own bigotted language in the same article. Hines has also drawn heavy criticism from Catholics including a letter to the editor from the former President of the U.S. Catholic Bishop’s Conference for his seemingly agenda-driven criticisms of Catholicism and its religious leaders, often based on little or no historical evidence, which he has expressed in numerous editorial columns.

    Al Sharpton: Sharpton, a perrenial Democrat candidate and one of the rumored candidates for the Democrat’s 2004 presidential nomination, has a notorious racist past. Sharpton was a central figure who fanned the 1991 Crown Heights race riot, where a mob shouting anti-semetic slurs murdered an innocent Jewish man. Sharpton also incited a 1995 protest of a Jewish owned store in Harlem where protesters used several anti-semetic slurs. During the protests, a Sharpton lieutenant called the store’s owner a “bloodsucker” and declared an intent to “loot the Jews.” A member of the protest mob later set fire to the store, resulting in the death of seven (source).

    Representative Dick Gephardt, D-MO: Gephardt, the former Democrat Minority Leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, gave several speeches to a St. Louis area hate group during his early years as a representative. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Gephardt spoke before the Metro South Citizens Council, a now defunct white supremacist organization, during his early years as a congressman. further reported that Gephardt had openly asked the group for an endorsement of his candidacy during one of his many visits with the organization. Gephardt has long avoided questions about his past affiliation with this group.

    Andrew Cuomo: Cuomo, Bill Clinton’s former Housing Secretary and a prominent Democrat political player in New York, was tape recorded using racially inflamatory rhetoric to build opposition to a potential Democrat primary opponent while speaking to a Democrat group. Cuomo stated that voting for his rival for the New York Democrat gubernatorial nomination Carl McCall, who is black, would create a “racial contract” between Black and Hispanic Democrats “and that can’t happen.” Upon initial reports, Cuomo denied the statement but later a tape recording surfaced. Cuomo later dropped out of the race for governor (source).

    Lee P. Brown: Brown, Bill Clinton’s former drug czar and Democrat mayor of Houston, engaged in racist campaigning designed to suppress Hispanic voter turnout during his 2001 reelection bid. Brown faced challenger Orlando Sanchez, a Hispanic Republican who drew heavy support from the Hispanic community during the general election. Two weeks prior to the runoff, Brown’s campaign printed racist signs designed to intimidate Hispanic voters. The signs featured a photograph of Sanchez and the words “Anti-Hispanic.” The signs drew harsh criticism from Hispanic leaders as their message was designed to intimidate and confuse Hispanic voters. Around the same time the signs were being used, Brown supporter and city councilman Carol Alvarado made a series of racially charged attacks on Sanchez, implying a desire to see the supression of Hispanic voter turnout in the runoff. Brown staffers also went on record claiming that Sanchez was not a true Hispanic. The racist anti-Hispanic undertones of Brown’s reelection bid were so great that liberal Democrat city councilman John Castillo, himself Hispanic, retracted his endorsement of Brown in disgust and became a Sanchez supporter in the final week of the campaign. Following the harsh condemnation of the racist signs and tactics, Brown purported that his campaign was removing them even though many still lingered around Houston up until the election. When election day came along, Brown placed more of the racist signs at polling places, despite his claim to have stopped using them. The large campaign billboard style election day signs featured, in Spanish, the word “Danger!” on them followed by Sanchez’s name with a large red circle and slash through it. The signs identified the Brown campaign as their owner on the bottom. Brown’s racially charged reelection effort barely squeeked by Sanchez on election day, winning 51% to 49% following a series of racially motivated advertisements in which the Brown campaign appealed to the fear of black voters by invoking images of the gruesome lynching death of James Byrd, Jr. and by attempting to pit them against Hispanics. While Brown had the audacity to declare himself a mayor for all people and all ethnicities at his victory party, many in Houston fear the racial wounds inflicted by his campaign will take years to heal.

    Mary Frances Berry: Berry is the Democrat chair of the US Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR). She purports herself to be an “independent” in her political affiliation in order to hold her job on the civil rights commission where partisan membership may not exceed 4 for either party, but is in fact a dedicated liberal Democrat who openly supported Al Gore for president and has given a total of $20,000 in personal contributions to the Democrat Party, Al Gore for President, and other Democrat candidates over the last decade. Berry is an open racist who is affiliated with the far-left Pacifica radio network, a group with ties to black nationalist causes. Berry once stated “Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them,” indicating that she believes the USCCR should only look out for civil rights violations against persons of certain select skin colors.

    Billy McKinney: Former Democrat State Representative Billy McKinney of Georgia, who is also the father of former Democrat congresswoman Cynthia McKinney of the same state. During his daughter’s failed 2002 reelection bid, McKinney appeared on television where he blamed his daughter’s difficulties on a Jewish conspiracy. McKinney unleashed a string of anti-semitic sentiments, stating “This is all about the Jews” and spelling out “J-E-W-S.” McKinney lost his own seat in a runoff a few weeks later.

    II. Democrat opposition to the Civil Rights Movement:
    A little known fact of history involves the heavy opposition to the civil rights movement by several prominent Democrats. Similar historical neglect is given to the important role Republicans played in supporting the civil rights movement. A calculation of 26 major civil rights votes from 1933 through the 1960’s civil rights era shows that Republicans favored civil rights in approximately 96% of the votes, whereas the Democrats opposed them in 80% of the votes! These facts are often intentionally overlooked by the left wing Democrats for obvious reasons. In some cases, the Democrats have told flat out lies about their shameful record during the civil rights movement.

    Democrat Senators organized the record Senate filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Included among the organizers were several prominent and well known liberal Democrat standard bearers including:
    – Robert Byrd, current senator from West Virginia
    – J. William Fulbright, Arkansas senator and political mentor of Bill Clinton
    – Albert Gore Sr., Tennessee senator, father and political mentor of Al Gore. Gore Jr. has been known to lie about his father’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act.
    – Sam Ervin, North Carolina senator of Watergate hearings fame
    – Richard Russell, famed Georgia senator and later President Pro Tempore

    The complete list of the 21 Democrats who opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 includes Senators:

    – Hill and Sparkman of Alabama
    – Fulbright and McClellan of Arkansas
    – Holland and Smathers of Florida
    – Russell and Talmadge of Georgia
    – Ellender and Long of Louisiana
    – Eastland and Stennis of Mississippi
    – Ervin and Jordan of North Carolina
    – Johnston and Thurmond of South Carolina
    – Gore Sr. and Walters of Tennessee
    – H. Byrd and Robertson of Virginia
    – R. Byrd of West Virginia

    Democrat opposition to the Civil Rights Act was substantial enough to literally split the party in two. A whopping 40% of the House Democrats VOTED AGAINST the Civil Rights Act, while 80% of Republicans SUPPORTED it. Republican support in the Senate was even higher. Similar trends occurred with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which was supported by 82% of House Republicans and 94% of Senate Republicans. The same Democrat standard bearers took their normal racists stances, this time with Senator Fulbright leading the opposition effort.

    It took the hard work of Republican Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen and Republican Whip Thomas Kuchel to pass the Civil Rights Act (Dirksen was presented a civil rights accomplishment award for the year by the head of the NAACP in recognition of his efforts). Upon breaking the Democrat filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Republican Dirksen took to the Senate floor and exclaimed “The time has come for equality of opportunity in sharing in government, in education, and in employment. It will not be stayed or denied. It is here!” (Full text of speech). Sadly, Democrats and revisionist historians have all but forgotten (and intentionally so) that it was Republican Dirksen, not the divided Democrats, who made the Civil Rights Act a reality. Dirksen also broke the Democrat filibuster of the 1957 Civil Rights Act that was signed by Republican President Eisenhower.

    Outside of Congress, the three most notorious opponents of school integration were all Democrats:
    – Orval Faubus, Democrat Governor of Arkansas and one of Bill Clinton’s political heroes
    – George Wallace, Democrat Governor of Alabama
    – Lester Maddox, Democrat Governor of Georgia

    The most famous of the school desegregation standoffs involved Governor Faubus. Democrat Faubus used police and state forces to block the integration of a high school in Little Rock, Arkansas. The standoff was settled and the school was integrated only after the intervention of Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

    Even the Democrat Party organization resisted integration and refused to allow minority participation for decades. Exclusion of minorities was the general rule of the Democrat Party of many states for decades, especially in Texas. This racist policy reached its peak under the New Deal in the southern and western states, often known as the New Deal Coalition region of FDR. The Supreme Court in Nixon v. Herndon declared the practice of “white primaries” unconstitutional in 1927 after states had passed laws barring Blacks from participating in Democrat primaries. But the Democrat Parties did not yield to the Court’s order. After Nixon v. Herndon, Democrats simply made rules within the party’s individual executive committees to bar minorities from participating, which were struck down in Nixon v. Condon in 1932. The Democrats, in typical racist fashion, responded by using state parties to pass rules barring blacks from participation. This decision was upheld in Grovey v. Townsend, which was not overturned until 1944 by Smith v. Allwright. The Texas Democrats responded with their usual ploys and turned to what was known as the “Jaybird system” which used private Democrat clubs to hold white-only votes on a slate of candidates, which were then transferred to the Democrat party itself and put on their primary ballot as the only choices. Terry v. Adams overturned the Jaybird system, prompting the Democrats to institute blocks of unit rule voting procedures as well as the infamous literacy tests and other Jim Crow regulations to specifically block minorities from participating in their primaries. In the end, it took 4 direct Supreme Court orders to end the Democrat’s “white primary” system, and after that it took countless additional orders, several acts of Congress, and a constitutional amendment to tear down the Jim Crow codes that preserved the Democrat’s white primary for decades beyond the final Supreme Court order ruling it officially unconstitutional.

    Hispanics in South Texas were treated especially poorly by the Democrat Party, which relied heavily on a system of political bosses to coerce and intimidate Hispanics into voting for Democrat primary candidates of choice. Though coercion is illegal, this system, known as the Patron system, is still in use to this day by local Democrat parties in some heavy Hispanic communities of the southwest.

    The next time Democrats take to the national airwaves to dishonestly accuse Republicans of racial hatred, remember who the historical record up until this very day points to as the real bigots: The Democrat Party. In all possible ways, the Democrat Party is built around the pillars of ultra leftists, many of whom are known participants in racism and/or affiliates of racist hate groups. Consider the Democrat Party of today’s heroes and leaders:
    – Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Democrat icon and orchestrator of Japanese Internment
    – Ex-House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt, former affiliate of a St. Louis area racist group
    – Ex-Senate President Pro Tempore Robert Byrd, former Ku Klux Klansman known for making bigoted slurs on national television
    – Rev. Jesse Jackson, Democrat keynote speaker and race hustler known for making anti-Semitic slurs
    – Rev. Al Sharpten, Democrat activist and perennial candidate and race hustler known inciting anti-Semitic violence in New York City
    – Sen. Ernest Hollings, leading Democrat Senator known for use of racial slurs against several minority groups
    – Lee P. Brown, former Clinton cabinet official and Democrat mayor of Houston who won reelection using racial intimidation against Hispanic voters
    – Andrew Cuomo, former Clinton cabinet official and Democrat candidate for NY Governor who made racist statements about a black opponent.
    – Dan Rather, Democrat CBS news anchor and editorialist known for using anti-black racial epithets on a national radio broadcast
    – Donna Brazile, former Gore campaign manager known for making anti-white racial attacks. Brazile has also worked for Jackson, Gephardt, and Michael Dukakis

    The simple truth is that the Democrat Party’s history during this century is one closely aligned to bigotry in a record stemming largely out of the liberal New Deal era up until the modern day. Bigots are at the center of the Democrat party’s current leadership and role models. And in a striking display of hypocrisy, many of the same Democrats who dishonestly shout accusations of “bigotry” at conservatives are practicing bigots of the most disgusting and disreputable kind themselves.

    I seriously doubt you want to debate the history of racism in the democratic party, the facts just aren’t on your side, so I suppose you will return to your typical propaganda and keep on sipping the kool-aid, the flavor is your choice. Have a nice day.

    The Obamas have no shame. What a surprize that Michelle is not wearing her $47,000 diamond bracelets, her $600 shoes and her $1,000 blouse.
    Obama calls for “shared sacrifice” which applies to everyone else except he and Michelle and all their RICH, DEMOCRAT friends (Axelrod, Jarrett, Geithner, etc.)
    Obama calls for “redistribution of wealth” which applies to everyone else except he and Michelle and all their RICH, DEMOCRAT friends.

    I don’t know why everyone is so angry. Why care about Barry and his old lady. They do nothing except annoy. Barry doesn’t make decisions; he is a puppet. Let the babies have their game. I actually kind of like Michelle. She is a strong woman who worked hard, got a degree and married smartly. She isn’t ugly either. She has a resplendent smile. As far as her shopping habits go, it is nobodies business. Sure she is pretentious, but anyone of her detractors would be too under similar circumstances.

    “Tonight is a particular honor for me because, let’s face it, my presence on this stage is pretty unlikely. My father was a foreign student, born and raised in a small village in Kenya. He grew up herding goats, went to school in a tin-roof shack. His father — my grandfather — was a cook, a domestic servant to the British. But my grandfather had larger dreams for his son. Through hard work and perseverance my father got a scholarship to study in a magical place, America, that shone as a beacon of freedom and opportunity to so many who had come before.”
    – Barack Obama, 2004 Democratic National Convention Keynote Address

    Far from being the mere ‘son of a goat herder’ (as he deceptively paraded during and even before his candidacy), strong evidence has emerged that President Barack Obama is the product of the intelligence community. Investigative reporter and former NSA employee Wayne Madsen has put together an extensive three-part (and growing) series with conclusive proof and documentation that Barack Obama Sr., Stanley Ann Dunham, Lolo Soetoro and President Barack Obama himself all hold deep ties to the CIA and larger intelligence community. And that’s just the beginning.

    After his election, President Obama quickly moved to seal off his records via an executive order. Now, after two years of hints and clues, there is substantial information to demonstrate that what Obama has omitted is that his rare rise to power can only be explained by his intelligence roots. However, this is more than the story of one man or his family. There is a long-term strategic plan to recruit promising candidates into intelligence and steer these individuals and their families into positions of influence and power. Consider that it is now declassified former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was recruited into MI5 before becoming a labour leader, or that George H. W. Bush not only became CIA director in 1976 but had a deeper past in the organization. While we may never know many pertinent details about these matters, one thing that is certain is that the American people have never been told the truth about who holds the real power, nor who this president– and likely many others– really is. Thus, we urge everyone to read Wayne Madsen’s deep report and seek the truth for yourself.


    The Story of Obama: All in The Company (In Three Parts)

    PART 1: The Story of Obama: All in The Company (Part I)

    Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen has discovered CIA files that document the agency’s connections to institutions and individuals figuring prominently in the lives of Barack Obama and his mother, father, grandmother, and stepfather. The first part of his report highlights the connections between Barack Obama, Sr. and the CIA-sponsored operations in Kenya to counter rising Soviet and Chinese influence among student circles and, beyond, to create conditions obstructing the emergence of independent African leaders.

    From 1983-84, Barack Obama worked as Editor at Business Internation Corporation, a Business International Corporation, a known CIA front company.

    President Obama’s own work in 1983 for Business International Corporation, a CIA front that conducted seminars with the world’s most powerful leaders and used journalists as agents abroad, dovetails with CIA espionage activities conducted by his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham in 1960s post-coup Indonesia on behalf of a number of CIA front operations, including the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation. Dunham met and married Lolo Soetoro, Obama’s stepfather, at the East-West Center in 1965. Soetoro was recalled to Indonesia in 1965 to serve as a senior army officer and assist General Suharto and the CIA in the bloody overthrow of President Sukarno.

    Barack Obama, Sr., who met Dunham in 1959 in a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii, had been part of what was described as an airlift of 280 East African students to the United States to attend various colleges — merely “aided” by a grant from the Joseph P. Kennedy Foundation, according to a September 12, 1960, Reuters report from London. The airlift was a CIA operation to train and indoctrinate future agents of influence in Africa, which was becoming a battleground between the United States and the Soviet Union and China for influence among newly-independent and soon-to-be independent countries on the continent.

    The airlift was condemned by the deputy leader of the opposition Kenyan African Democratic Union (KADU) as favoring certain tribes — the majority Kikuyus and minority Luos — over other tribes to favor the Kenyan African National Union (KANU), whose leader was Tom Mboya, the Kenyan nationalist and labor leader who selected Obama, Sr. for a scholarship at the University of Hawaii. Obama, Sr., who was already married with an infant son and pregnant wife in Kenya, married Dunham on Maui on February 2, 1961 and was also the university’s first African student. Dunham was three month’s pregnant with Barack Obama, Jr. at the time of her marriage to Obama, Sr.

    The CIA allegedly recruited Tom M’Boya in a heavily funded “selective liberation” programme to isolate Kenya’s founding President Jomo Kenyatta, who the American spy agency labelled as “unsafe.”

    KADU deputy leader Masinda Muliro, according to Reuters, said KADU would send a delegation to the United States to investigate Kenyan students who received “gifts” from the Americans and “ensure that further gifts to Kenyan students are administered by people genuinely interested in Kenya’s development.’”

    Mboya received a $100,000 grant for the airlift from the Kennedy Foundation after he turned down the same offer from the U.S. State Department, obviously concerned that direct U.S. assistance would look suspicious to pro-Communist Kenyan politicians who suspected Mboya of having CIA ties. The Airlift Africa project was underwritten by the Kennedy Foundation and the African-American Students Foundation. Obama, Sr. was not on the first airlift but a subsequent one. The airlift, organized by Mboya in 1959, included students from Kenya, Uganda, Tanganyika, Zanzibar, Northern Rhodesia, Southern Rhodesia, and Nyasaland.

    Reuters also reported that Muliro charged that Africans were “disturbed and embittered” by the airlift of the selected students. Muliro “stated that “preferences were shown to two major tribes [Kikuyu and Luo] and many U.S.-bound students had failed preliminary and common entrance examinations, while some of those left behind held first-class certificates.”

    Obama, Sr. was a friend of Mboya and a fellow Luo. After Mboya was assassinated in 1969, Obama, Sr. testified at the trial of his alleged assassin. Obama, Sr. claimed he was the target of a hit-and-run assassination attempt after his testimony.

    CIA-airlifted to Hawaii, Barack Obama Sr., with leis, stands with Stanley Dunham, President Obama’s grandfather, on his right.

    Obama, Sr., who left Hawaii for Harvard in 1962, divorced Dunham in 1964. Obama, Sr. married a fellow Harvard student, Ruth Niedesand, a Jewish-American woman, who moved with him to Kenya and had two sons. They were later divorced. Obama, Sr. worked for the Kenyan Finance and Transport ministries as well as an oil firm. Obama, Sr. died in a 1982 car crash and his funeral was attended by leading Kenyan politicians, including future Foreign Minister Robert Ouko, who was murdered in 1990.

    CIA files indicate that Mboya was an important agent-of-influence for the CIA, not only in Kenya but in all of Africa. A formerly Secret CIA Current Intelligence Weekly Summary, dated November 19, 1959, states that Mboya served as a check on extremists at the second All-African People’s Conference (AAPC) in Tunis. The report states that “serious friction developed between Ghana’s Prime Minister Kwame Nkrumah and Kenyan nationalist Tom Mboya who cooperated effectively last December to check extremists at the AAPC’s first meeting in Accra.” The term “cooperated effectively” appears to indicate that Mboya was cooperating with the CIA, which filed the report from field operatives in Accra and Tunis. While “cooperating” with the CIA in Accra and Tunis, Mboya selected the father of the president of the United States to receive a scholarship and be airlifted to the University of Hawaii where he met and married President Obama’s mother.

    An earlier CIA Current Intelligence Weekly Summary, secret, and dated April 3, 1958, states that Mboya “still appears to be the most promising of the African leaders.” Another CIA weekly summary, secret and dated December 18, 1958, calls Mboya the Kenyan nationalist an “able and dynamic young chairman” of the People’s Convention party who was viewed as an opponent of “extremists” like Nkrumah, supported by “Sino-Soviet representatives.”

    In a formerly Secret CIA report on the All-Africa Peoples Conference in 1961, dated November 1, 1961, Mboya’s conservatism, along with that of Taleb Slim of Tunisia, are contrasted to the leftist policies of Nkrumah and others. Pro-communists who were elected to the AAPC’s steering committee at the March 1961 Cairo conference, attended by Mboya, are identified in the report as Abdoulaye Diallo, AAPC Secretary General, of Senegal; Ahmed Bourmendjel of Algeria; Mario de Andrade of Angola; Ntau Mokhele of Basutoland; Kingue Abel of Cameroun; Antoine Kiwewa of Congo (Leopoldville); Kojo Botsio of Ghana; Ismail Toure of Guinea; T. O. Dosomu Johnson of Liberia; Modibo Diallo of Mali; Mahjoub Ben Seddik of Morocco; Djibo Bakari of Niger; Tunji Otegbeya of Nigeria; Kanyama Chiume of Nyasaland; Ali Abdullahi of Somalia; Tennyson Makiwane of South Africa, and Mohamed Fouad Galal of the United Arab Republic.

    The only attendees in Cairo who were given a clean bill of health by the CIA were Mboya, who appears to have been a snitch for the agency, and Joshua Nkomo of Southern Rhodesia, B. Munanka of Tanganyika, Abdel Magid Shaker of Tunisia, and John Kakonge of Uganda.

    Nkrumah would eventually be overthrown in a 1966 CIA-backed coup while he was on a state visit to China and North Vietnam. The CIA overthrow of Nkrumah followed by one year the agency’s overthrow of Sukarno, another coup that was connected to President Obama’s family on his mother’s side. There are suspicions that Mboya was assassinated in 1969 by Chinese agents working with anti-Mboya factions in the government of Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta in order to eliminate a pro-U.S. leading political leader in Africa. Upon Mboya’s death, every embassy in Nairobi flew its flag at half-mast except for one, the embassy of the People’s Republic of China.

    Jomo Kenyatta, first President of Kenya.

    Mboya’s influence in the Kenyatta government would continue long after his death and while Obama, Sr. was still alive. In 1975, after the assassination of KANU politician Josiah Kariuki, a socialist who helped start KANU, along with Mboya and Obama, Sr., Kenyatta dismissed three rebellious cabinet ministers who “all had personal ties to either Kariuki or Tom Mboya.” This information is contained in CIA Staff Notes on the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia, formerly Top Secret Umbra, Handle via COMINT Channels, dated June 24, 1975. The intelligence in the report, based on its classification, indicate the information was derived from National Security Agency intercepts in Kenya. No one was ever charged in the assassination of Kariuki.

    The intecepts of Mboya’s and Kariuki’s associates are an indication that the NSA and CIA also maintain intercepts on Barack Obama, Sr., who, as a non-U.S. person, would have been lawfully subject at the time to intercepts carried out by NSA and Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).

    PART 2: Special Report. The Story of Obama: All in The Company – Part II

    In Part I of this WMR special report, we revealed the connections between Barack Obama, Sr. and the CIA-affiliated Airlift Africa project to provide college degrees to and gain influence over a group of 280 eastern and southern African students from soon-to-be independent African nations to counter similar programs established by the Soviet Union and China. Barack Obama Sr. was the first African student to attend the University of Hawaii. Obama Sr. and Obama’s mother Stanley Ann Dunham met in a Russian language class in 1959 and they married in 1961.

    The African airlift program was administered by Kenyan nationalist leader Tom Mboya, a fellow Luo tribe mentor and friend of the senior Obama. According to CIA documents described in Part I, Mboya also served the CIA in ensuring that pro-Soviet and pro-Chinese African nationalists were stymied in their attempt to dominate pan-African nationalist political, student, and labor movements.

    One of Mboya’s chief opponents was Ghana’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah, who was ousted in a CIA-inspired coup in 1966, one year before to Obama Sr’s son, Barack Obama, Jr. and his mother joined Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian who Obama’s mother met at the University of Hawaii in 1965, when President Obama was four years old.

    In 1967, Obama and his mother joined her husband in Jakarta. In 1965, Lolo Soetoro had been called back from Hawaii by General Suharto to serve as an officer in the Indonesian military to help launch a bloody CIA-backed genocide of Indonesian Communists and Indonesian Chinese throughout the expansive country. Suharto consolidated his power in 1966, the same year that Barack Obama, Sr.’s friend, Mboya, had helped to rally pro-U.S. pan-African support for the CIA’s overthrow of Nkrumah in Ghana in 1966.

    East-West Center, University of Hawaii, and CIA coup against Sukarno

    Ann Dunham met Soetoro at the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii. The center had long been affiliated with CIA activities in the Asia-Pacific region. In 1965, the year that Dunham met and married Soetoro, the center saw a new chancellor take over. He was Howard P. Jones who served a record seven years, from 1958 to 1965, as U.S. ambassador to Indonesia. Jones was present in Jakarta as Suharto and his CIA-backed military officers planned the 1965 overthrow of Sukarno, who was seen, along with the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI), as allies of China.

    When Jones was chancellor of the East-West Center, he wrote an article for the Washington Post, dated October 10, 1965, in which he defended Suharto’s overthrow of Sukarno. Jones was “invited” by the Post to comment on the Suharto coup, described as a “counter-coup” against the Communists. Jones charged that Suharto was merely responding to an earlier attempted Communist-led coup against Sukarno launched by Lt. Col. Untung, “a relatively unknown battalion commander in the palace guard.”

    Jones’s article, which mirrored CIA situation reports from the U.S. embassy in Jakarta, continued by stating that the alleged leftist coup on September 30 ”came within an inch of succeeding through the assassination of six of the top military command. It might well have succeeded had not Defense Minister Nasution and a number of other senior generals also maked for assassination acted fast in a dramatic counter-coup.” Of course, what Jones did not inform the Post’s readers was that the Suharto “counter-coup” had been assisted with the strong help of the CIA.

    Sukarno never blamed the Communists for the assassination of the army generals nor did the Indonesian Cabinet, where the second= and third-ranking leaders of the PKI were present. The possibility that the assassination of the generals was a CIA/Suharto “false flag” operation to affix blame on the PKI cannot be ruled out. Two days after Suharto’s coup, a CIA “rent-a-mob” burned down the PKI headquarters in Jakarta. As they marched past the U.S. Embassy, which was also the site of the CIA station, they yelled out, “Long live America!”

    Untung later said that when he became aware that Suharto and the CIA were planning a coup on October 5, 1965 – Indonesian Armed Forces Day – forces loyal to him and Sukarno moved first. Jones described this as “typical Communist propaganda.” Suharto moved against Sukarno on October 1. Jones iterated that “there was not an iota of truth . . . in the accusation that the CIA was working against Sukarno.” History has proven otherwise. Jones accused the Communists of taking advantage of Sukarno’s failing health to beat out the other candidates to succeed him. The goal, according to Jones, was to have PKI boss D.N. Aidit succeed Sukarno. Sukarno did not die until 1970, while under house arrest.

    A CIA paper, formerly classified Secret and undated, states “Sukarno would like to return to the status quo ante-coup. He has refused to condemn the PKI or the 30th September Movement [of Lt. Col. Untung]; instead, he calls for unity of Indonesia and asks that no vengeance be taken by one group against the other. But, he has not succeeded in forcing the Army to abandon its anti-PKI activities and, on the other hand, he has bowed to their demand by appointing its single candidate General Suharto as head of the Army.” Suharto and Barry Obama Soetoro’s step-father Lolo Soetoro would ignore Sukarno’s call for no vengeance, as hundreds of thousands of Indonesians would soon discover.

    The mass murder by Suharto of Indonesian Chinese is seen in the CIA paper’s description of the Baperki Party: “the leftist Baperki Party, with its major strength in rural areas, is largely Chinese-Indonesian in membership.” A CIA Intelligence Memorandum, dated October 6, 1966 and formerly classified Secret, shows the extent of the CIA’s monitoring of the anti-Sukarno coup from various CIA agents assigned as liaisons to Suharto’s army units surrounding the Presidential Palace in Bogor and at various diplomatic posts around the country, including the U.S. Consulate in Medan, which was keeping track of leftists in that Sumatran city and, which, in an October 2, 1965, Intelligence Memo, reported to the CIA that the “Soviet consul-general in Medan has a plane standing by that could be used for evacuation of Soviet citizens from Sumatra.” The October 6 memo also warns against allowing Untung from developing a following in Central Java.

    the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year. Branding her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say the 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol.

    ‘It’s disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week \or two off work. ‘When it’s all added up, she’s spent more than $10million in taxpayers’ money on her vacations.

    The First Lady is believed to have taken 42 days of holiday in the past year, including a $375,000 break in Spain and a four-day ski trip to Vail, Colorado, where she spent $2,000 a night on a suite at the Sebastian hotel. And the first family’s nine-day stay in Martha’s Vineyard is also proving costly, with rental of the Blue Heron Farm property alone costing an estimated $50,000 a week. ‘Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines.
    ‘The vacations are totally Michelle’s idea. She’s like a junkie. She can’t schedule enough getaways, and she lives from one to the next – all the while sticking it to hardworking Americans.

    I am a black middle-class male. The Obama’s are a total embarrassment to African Americans. Yes I voted for him in 2008 but will not be voting for him in 2012. He has distanced himself from blacks though he claims to be one of us. As far as Michelle goes, even my wife cannot stand her.


    Phony frauds no question. And these are the people who brain wash the drones in this country who listen to all their lies. Like the morons who buy into Al Gore’s rants on conservation while he lived in a mansion which used more electricity than 200 homes. These are the same liberal phonies who hate Bush. A guy who lives in a home built partly into the ground to conserve energy, and which uses a roof design drainage system that reuses rain run off.

    These same morons are protesting on Wall street. Meanwhile a very healthy percentage of the so called rich wall street types likely work more hours in a given day than some of these protesters do all week.

    What a disgrace to watch a bunch of people who think they actually have a point to make. For the most part these people are protesting folks who work long hours, take greater risk, and get highly paid. While these idiots protest greed, which is a small part of wall street, greed is not illegal, but disorderly conduct is. While the protesters interfere with the rights of others they talk about fairness and put down capitalism. Move.

Please, for the country’s sake, and for your retirement income, don’t be fooled again. The truth about Michelle is she spends a lot of your tax dollars on her travel and vacations.

    I agree but one thing that is clear as daylight to me: In no way, shape or form could Obama ever be called a “leader.”

    You all disgust me first off, the Obama’s are people just like all of us. None of you can honestly say that were you able you wouldn’t buy fancy things, and really, bashing her for spending money-her money is ridiculous, its not like shes taking tax cash. Second, while the leadership isnt perfect, no matter how you slice it, Obama is a better leader than bush. Ever could have been. Yes there are financial issues afflicting everyone and every state, but its mostly been caused by policies that bush enacted. I don’t understand why you all bash these poor people, who are just trying to what they can with what they were given.
    You become president, and then bash them after you know how demanding the job is.

    The tea party is a sham. And! They are using your tax dollars to spread hate and biggotry. Complain a about the problem, not the people trying to solve it.

    @Bill Clint

    Err Bill, where have you been hiding these past couple of years? Who do you think pays for over 90% of the cost of their expensive vacations?

    We the taxpaying public – that’s who?

    On a day when thousands of people lined up in the Atlanta summer heat in the hope of getting a job that might, if they were lucky, pay $50k per year before deductions, Obama & crew flew off to vacation in Martha’s Vineyard at a place that charges $50k per WEEK before additional expenses. Michelle O even went 4 hours ahead so that she didn’t have to wait for Barry. That 4 hour head-start cost US another few tens of thousands.

    And this was only one of several expensive vacations taken at OUR expense.

Every time they go on one of their many date nights, vacations, golfing trips, etc., who do you think picks up the tab? The taxpayers, that’s who! If she is a shining light to African American women, whoa be unto them, cause they need to trade up to someone with more class and integrity.

    It’s all a ploy to convince us that the Obamas are not moochers. It’s too late for that; we know better. Just the week before she was wearing a $42K bracelet. I saw an article that said she didn’t buy it; just ‘borrowed’ it. It doesn’t matter. The fact is that she wore it at a time when Americans are in terrible financial stress. It sends a message that we can ‘eat cake’ while they live high on the hog on our taxpayer dollar. Also throwing her position in our face when she took a private jet on vacation twice because Obama was delayed a few hours for their Martha’s Vineyard vacation and I believe it was a day or more for the Hawaii vacation. They are moochers that believe they are owed the lifestyle of a celebrity or of royalty. They are neither. Obama works for us and Moochelle is his wife, period. Now that the election is a little more than a year away, someone is advising them to ‘tone it down’. A day late and a dollar short! Obama is SO One and Done!

    Stating , “shame on all of you for attacking the president’s wife.”, and “I never heard any of the citizens you call “libs” mock or criticize Laura Bush”, “Other than having bad taste in men” ,
    That’s hypocrisy!

    You blame Bush by stating things like, “GW Bush was the absolute worst president imaginable”, failing to pursue Osama bin Laden in Tora Bora and leaving Obama to finish the job of killing him etc etc etc”, ” taking a gigantic surplus and turning it into a deficit”.

    Michelle Obama desperately needs a ‘professional dresser’ because FLOTUS has NO sense of style whatsoever. Not only was this shopping spree ‘staged’ but she FORGOT to wear a bra or else she buys cheap bras that aren’t doing her any service. Her congenital LIAR-IN-CHIEF and his FLOTUS both need to be investigated througly, as the MSM DID NOT do their duty when he ran the first time, and We, The People are now paying the consequences. Both the Obama’s are FAKE, superficial, phony, grossly egotistical and complacently foolish. That is what happens when uninformed, politically uneducated people are allowed to vote. We get someone with a fake birth certificate, a Social Security that is dated three years BEFORE he was born and a total idiot that is our first black president, that has turned into the first ‘faux’ black president, who will go down in history as dismal FAILURE.

    Is the Lysol she bought to cleanse herself of the common people stench

  • Zunkination

    Wait! Where are her enviro-friendly reusable fabric sacks?? Can’t believe she would dare use plastic!

    Look Closely. She isn’t pushing the cart. She is just pretending to push it. In fact the background (including the woman carrying the bags) is computer generated. This was done on the same Hollywood sound stage where the moon landings were faked. These people have no shame.

    Ah, I get it.
    When it’s on our dime, they fly to NYC for dinner and a play, shutting the city down.
    When it’s on their dime it’s off to Target.
    What’s the next photo op?…reusing the Target bag to pick up some dog poop on the White House lawn?

    Looks like this belongs in one of those “People of Wal Mart” e-mails. Mr. & Mrs. Punks…

    Michelle Obama was at Target to bring attention to the store because her favorite designer just signed a contract with Target for a line of clothing. Let’s hope Moochelle’s booty is not in the promo ads!


    You’ve got to be kidding. What a freakin joke. I feel like throwing up now…. Do these two people not stop at nothing! And she’s telling Americans what to eat, drink and how to lose pounds….she might better check that trunk she’s packing. We got her hubby telling me how much money I can have, where I can go, what I can light my house with and on and on and on. These are not leadership qualities – they are selfish ones. Can’t wait for 2012 –

    No kidding! You mean reporters are stupid enough to be set up? IS Michelle ‘my belle’ no longer insteresting enough to have the media swarming her any more, she has to call them and beg them to come and film her? are her rating polls that low? Shouldn;t she get her own network just like the OPRAH? Maybe even give Rosie O’Donnel one? They are liberal after all, so they are above the law! Worship them as the Holy Obamic Trinity or risk being called racist and bigoted for not doing so!

    #Logic: “I know this is immaterial, but why does she have the assistant carry the bags while she pushes an empty cart?”

    Because carrying so many bags in her arms would (a) show greed (b) that her biceps are bigger than Barry’s (c) pushing a cart screams “I’m just one of you people!”

    (Photog screwed up with bad crop – remember, it’s ALWAYS someone else fault)

    Laura Bush killed a man while reckless driving, but these same people are mocking this First Lady for going to a Store?

    To be fair to MO, it’s not uncommon to park your cart inside the store so you don’t have to do it outside. If she had a Suburban waiting at the curb for her (quite likely), she’d leave the cart at the indoor corral and head out. There would be no point to pushing the cart all the way out to the car and then leaving it at an outdoor corral.
