The search for Amelia Earhart is back onthanks to the State Department and $500k in private funds.
Kicked off at a State Department event celebrating “Amelia Earhart and the United States’ ties to our Pacific neighbors,” the search for the aviation pioneer, who disappeared 75 years ago over the South Pacific, will focus on the theory that Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, landed in the vicinity of the Pacific atoll of Nikumaroro, formerly known as Gardner Island.
Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is scheduled to meet today with members of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery — the group leading the new search, which will begin in earnest this July to coincide with the anniversary of Earhart and Noonan’s fateful flight.
Is she really that dumb? Is he really proud of her? Is this just a joke?
This guy is a freaking idiot, but then most liberals are, especially if they are so called actors.
Can you imagine the mind-melting outrage if a conservative said it’s “too soon for another black first lady”?
Actor Robert De Niro thrilled the crowd at a New York fundraiser headlined by first lady Michelle Obama when he listed the alternatives.
“Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?” De Niro asked a star-studded crowd gathered in the backroom of Locanda Verde, a restaurant he owns on Greenwich Street in TriBeCa.
Someone in the crowd shouted, “No!” as De Niro quickly added, “Too soon, right?”
Celebrities including Beyonce, her mother Tina Knowles, Star Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, Gayle King, Angela Bassett and Ben Stiller were spotted by the pool reporter at the 85-person event, where tickets started at $5,000 per person, benefiting the Obama Victory Fund. Film producer Harvey Weinstein, a bundler who’s brought in more than $500,000 in donation and was a guest at last week’s White House state dinner for British Prime Minister David Cameron, was also spotted at the event.
But Team Obama shoves the idiot above under the bus, real damn quick!
(CNN) – President Barack Obama’s reelection organization said Tuesday it was “inappropriate” for Robert De Niro to joke at a campaign fundraiser in New York Monday that America wasn’t “ready for a white first lady.”
“We believe the joke was inappropriate,” Olivia Alair, Campaign Press Secretary to the First Lady, said in a statement.
The campaign’s comment came after Newt Gingrich delivered a scorching response to De Niro’s comments at an Obama for America fundraiser, which was attended by first lady Michelle Obama.
While Michelle Obama headlined the event, she was introduced after De Niro’s remarks. The event was also attended by a number of other prominent Obama supporters, including Harvey Weinstein and Beyonce.
“Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?” De Niro asked to cheers from the crowd. “Too soon, right?”
Here is something. Find the first liberal woman you know and ask her if she would vote for this.
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama send greetings to the Iranian people celebrating Nowruz. In his video message, the President tells the Iranian people that the United States stands with them in the pursuit of their universal rights and seeks a future of deeper connections between our peoples.
And our president, such as he is, chastises Iran For Controlling The Flow of Information To Its People!
Sean Hannity is none to happy with Omama’s ol’lady doing Letterman. And neither was I. The liberal in Letterman really came out last night!
President Obama’s most recent green energy fixation—algae—may suffer from the accusations of cronyism that have plagued his broader effort to promote non-fossil fuel energy sources through massive federal subsidies.
Solazyme, a San Francisco-based firm that specializes in the plant matter, has received more than $25 million in federal grants and contracts as part of Obama administration’s controversial stimulus package, and is poised to receive millions more as part of the president’s recent efforts to promote green biofuels such as algae.
The firm employs a former member of the Obama-Biden transition team who, according to one online bio, “played a key role in developing the energy provisions in the economic stimulus bill.”
TJ Glauthier, who is listed as a “strategic adviser” and corporate board member, previously held a number of high-ranking posts in the Clinton Administration, including deputy secretary and chief operating officer of the U.S. Department of Energy. [...]
In total, Solazyme officials have contributed at least $360,000 to Democrats since 2007. The majority of that money has come from just three individuals: board members Jerry Fiddler ($226,650) and Daniel Miller (more than $36,000), and executive vice president of technology Peter Licari (more than $100,000).
Only a freaking liberal islamic asshole euro-nut could make such a vile comparison.
(JPost) — Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni each criticized EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Tuesday for relating the murder of French Jews in Toulouse with “what is happening in Gaza.”
Speaking during a visit to China, Liberman said that the comparison was inappropriate and that he hopes that she retracts her statement. The children Ashton should be talking about, he continued, “are the ones in southern Israel who live in constant fear of rocket attacks [launched against] them from Gaza.”
Ashton told a group of Palestinian youth in Brussels on Monday: “When we think about what happened today in Toulouse, we remember what happened in Norway last year, we know what is happening in Syria, and we see what is happening in Gaza and other places – we remember young people and children who lose their lives,” AFP reported.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak harshly condemned the statement, calling it “outrageous and far from reality.”
“The IDF operates with maximum caution in Gaza in order to prevent harm to innocents,” Barak said. “I hope that the EU’s foreign minister will quickly realize the mistake she made and withdraw her comments.”
This is why, any islamic country, we could never get along with them. Not with so called clerics calling for murder and more.
SANA’A: Mohamed Abdel-Mageed al-Zindany, the son of Yemen’s Sheikh Abdel-Mageed al-Zindani, a prominent cleric and powerful tribal leader, called on his fellow Yemenis to raise the flag of Islam and wage war on the American infidels, starting with US ambassador to Yemen, Gerard Feierstein.
In a fiery verbal attack against the ambassador, al-Zindani slammed American’s interference in Yemen, accusing the Pentagon of “meddling” with the country’s internal affairs to better pursue its own agenda in the region.
Al-Zindani seems to be now stepping in his father’s footsteps as he rises against what he calls American imperialism. Sheikh Zindani, who famously figures on America’s most wanted terror list, was indicted last year by President Ali Abdullah Saleh and an arrest warrant was issued against his person.
The government has thus far failed to enact the order, with officials from al-Islah, the country’s Islamic political faction warning that they would oppose any move against one of its leaders. Heading the Islahis, Sheikh Zindani is a force to be reckoned with, and an estimated thousands hardened fighters under his direct command.
Wow, this is something! You catch a armed gun / drug runner and let him go with a promise he will call you to inform on the cartel? You gotta be kidding me.

“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”

If Mitt Romney is victorious in Illinois on Tuesday, it will be due in part to one of his key advantages as a presidential candidate: big-money fundraisers.
Romney has assembled a broad roster of Illinois donors who have helped him bring in millions in President Obama’s back yard, part of a network of hundreds of major fundraisers nationwide that has allowed him to easily outpace the rest of the Republican field. [...]
Susan Crown, a philanthropist and member of the billionaire Crown family, has switched sides from supporting Obama in 2008 to backing Romney now, although some of her relatives remain Obama supporters. Crown said in an interview that she was prompted to support Romney after Obama spoke in favor of a return to 1967 borders with land swaps as part of a potential Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement.
“There are a lot of people here who are very disappointed in the president,” said Crown, who co-hosted a fundraiser for Romney last year with her husband. “Illinois is very important because it’s Barack Obama’s home state and it has a lot of independents. I’m an independent and I’m working as hard as I can for Mitt.”
So he thinks Jesus was a pro-abortion godless atheist? He is another rich liberal asshole that needs to get run out of office!
Via Fox Nation:
U.S. Sen. John Kerry, just off the airplane from a meeting with Muslim leaders in Dubai, told the students at Gordon College on Monday that there is more in all religions worldwide that unites rather than divides people of faith…
He said the world faces problems of Biblical proportion. Among the most important issue is bringing the world’s populations out of poverty. One of out every 16 verses in the Bible, he said, deals with caring for the poor. Yet too many Christians forget that helping the poor was such an important focus of Jesus’ message, he said.
He said Christians should be very concerned about environmental abuses. Speaking on a warm afternoon one day before the end of winter, he said there is no question that the Earth is suffering from global warming.
He also said Christians should support universal health care.
“Jesus did not help just the sick who could afford to pay for it,” he said.
Is this guy so far detached from reality that he actually believes what shit he spouts?
Energy Secretary Steven Chu said he would give himself a “higher than A-minus” grade on keeping gas prices low at a hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Tuesday morning.
At the Oversight Committee hearing, held to address the Energy Department’s green energy loan program, Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) asked Chu how he would grade his performance on reducing gas prices. Chu said “higher than A-minus,” citing the department’s aggressive work to develop alternatives to petroleum-based fuel, such as natural gas and electric.
At a previous Oversight Committee Hearing, Chu said he would give himself an A-minus grade for his performance so far as Energy Secretary.
