John Corzine drove IMF Global into bankruptcy, and $1.2 billion dollars in customer money is still missing. He claims he “doesn’t know” where the money went. This is the same man who gave Obama his “economic recovery” plan.
The Man Who Drove IMF Global Into Bankruptcy Is the Same Man Who Gave Obama His “Economic Recovery” Plan…December 22, 2011
(CNSNews.com) – The 63-foot Sierra White Fir lighted at the U.S. Capitol Grounds on Dec. 6 as the official 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree includes a prominently displayed ornament paying homage to President Barack Obama, but includes no ornament readily visible to a person standing near the tree’s base that uses the word “Christmas,” or includes an image of the Nativity, or bears the name or image of Jesus Christ.
On the north side of the tree–at a height of about 4 feet and easily visible to people standing near it—there is an ornament that says: “I ♥ President Obama.”
When asked whether the tree included any ornaments that mention or depict Christmas or the birth of Jesus, the office of the Architect of the Capitol, which is responsible for the tree, told CNSNews.com that it “does not have a policy nor any restrictions concerning the themes for the ornaments” that go on the tree.
The office could not say, however, whether or not this year’s Christmas tree does in fact include even a single ornament that directly references or depicts Christmas or Christ.
Obama Required the 1031 Indefinite Detainment Bill to Include Language Allowing the Federal Government to Detain U.S. Citizens Indefinitely Without Constitutional Rights!December 12, 2011
Thanks to the testimony of Senator Levin before the Senate, we now know it was Obama who required the 1031 Indefinite Detainment Bill to include language allowing the federal government to detain U.S. citizens indefinitely without Constitutional rights!
Here is Senator Levin on the floor of the Senate revealing it was Obama himself who demanded U.S. citizens be part of the Indefinite Detainment Bill!
Arrests of illegal migrants trying to cross the southern U.S. border have plummeted to levels not seen since the early 1970s, according to tallies released by the Department of Homeland Security last week, a historic shift that could reshape the debate over immigration reform.
The Border Patrol apprehended 327,577 illegal crossers along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2011, which ended Sept. 30, numbers not seen since Richard Nixon was president, and a precipitous drop from the peak in 2000, when 1.6 million unauthorized migrants were caught.
The number of illegal migrants arrested at the border has been dropping over the past few years but appears to be down by more than 25 percent this year.
While the capital markets may be cheering that in the past month 120,000 people supposedly found jobs, even if these were largely temporary or part-time just in time for the year end shopping sprees, we wonder how they will react when learning that according to the latest update from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), some 423,000 Americans found their way to minimum way subsistence, courtesy of Food Stamp handouts from Uncle Sam.
Since the start of the Second Great Depression, food stamp participation has increased by 18.7 million, and is now at an all time higher 46.3 million. All Bush’s fault, or something. At least the chart above appears to be plateauing… Actually, sorry, no isn’t.
Obamas to Take 17 Day Luxury Christmas Vacation in Hawaii, While Americans Struggle (What Else is New?)…December 4, 2011
President Barack Obama has announced his Christmas vacation to Hawaii – for a staggering 17-day trip.
Obama, who visited the island just two weeks ago for an economic summit, will head to Honolulu on Saturday December 17 until Monday January 2.
The president, who was raised in Hawaii until he was six, will be joined by his wife Michelle and their daughters, Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10.
The White House travel office announced the president has no public events scheduled for the trip.
The President’s family covers the cost of a private beach front residence in Kailua, Oahu, for their vacation – a ‘Winter White House’ that costs up to $3,500 a day, or $75,000 a month.
But the local and federal taxpayers help pay the bill for travel and security.
Last year the trip cost more than $1 million, according to the Hawaii Reporter.
Obama announced the trip during a campaign fundraiser on Oahu’s Leeward Coast during his stay on the island last month.
It follows an 11-day stay in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, earlier this year, which is also believed to have cost the U.S. taxpayer millions.
Michelle Obama Slips Out to Dine On Moroccan Swordfish Sliders and Edible Chocolate Sculpture (While Americans Try to Afford Groceries)December 1, 2011
A Yeas & Nays source tells us she dined with seven friends for dinner and, of course, dessert — which featured an edible chocolate sculpture and house-made artisanal chocolates by Chef Santosh Tiptur.
We’re told Obama’s favorite savory was Chef Tiptur’s Moroccan Swordfish Sliders with chermoula marinade, fennel salad, aged pecorino and hazelnut coffee dressing.
The restaurant owners later posted to Twitter about their excitement of having her as a guest:
“It was such an honor to have first lady Michelle Obama dine at Co Co. Sala last night. What an exciting and humbling experience!”
