    • I simply cannot understand why they don’t care how their behavior is perceived by not only American citizens but also the rest of the world.

      • The Grifters have no respect for America, much less the Seat of Government. They clawed their way to the top, ran the dirtiest campaign(s) in history, and are now enjoying their ill-gotten booty with gusto. Pigs at the trough, especially the wife.

        Heard a funny story through the grapevine the other day. Seems that the Mooch greatly resents having to sing for her supper vis a vis ‘official’ appearances to offset the cost of her many vacays. She simply does not want to mix with the hoi poloi, lol.

      • The Obamas never wanted the office of the Presidency. It’s just something that BO graciously took on because it is necessary to their agenda. Michelle Antoinette feels she is even more put upon because she is the sidekick to the President and not even the big wheel herself.

        Thus, both feel entitled to lots of goodies in compensation for their sacrifices.

        Also, both are community organizer thinkers — work the system, see where it’s weak and exploit it. There’s no cap on Prez vacays, so go for it.

    • Thanks, Lizzy. “A White House spokesman says the president will be doing exactly the same thing in Florida as he would do in the White House.” The Daily Mail doesn’t understand the irony in that statement, but we on WHD who read the daily schedules do.

  1. I tried to save an article Keith did on Wednesday or Thursday that
    listed several things that were going on within a week time period.
    Can anyone give me the link to that article?

        • I read your article, Thanks. Good article.
          I made comments a moment ago, and was told I was posting to fast, and got knocked off.

          I don’t know what we are going to do when the only people who have guns are the Govt. and the Street Criminals.
          Common Core: comment about Govt officials Command.,
          all I can say is that parents with school children need to start discussing topics at home a LOT more!
          I pulled up a Common Core math problem for young school children weeks ago. It was nothing more than a Circus math problem.
          What is so terrifying is that we live in a Country where we can find and learn all the news that most media decide to leave out. We have the internet to share news that others find. We have wonderful articles by Keith, yourself, AFVet.
          Point: All of this information and so many people are not paying attention. Blind Sheep.

          • You just nailed our problem on the head. It’s really not Obama, Reid or Pelosi or even the entire left wing army. The truth is that every single Gallup poll shows that extreme left wing ideology doesn’t even poll in the double digits with Americans.
            BUT, since the broadcast networks, and the legacy press push it as mainstream and massage the positions as “reasonable”, it’s the conservative, Constitutional message that gets labeled “radical”.
            Combine that with 40 year so dumbing down two generations of public school graduates and you’ve got a recipe for “Where apathy reigns, tyranny rules”.
            It truly is only because of an apathetic public that the tyranny of the left is able to operate.

  2. I think the Dems’ interest in universal Pre-K and their wish to feed kids all meals at school is their way of easing around the fact that many in our nation today do not take care of their children. Rather than shaming these people (as they deserve) or reducing the size of the checks sent to their homes, the Progressives try to absorb the children into the system.

    Though why we would allow children to live with “parents” who can’t come up with one good meal a day for their family is beyond me. Ditto parents who are so feckless their children arrive at Kindergarten unable to hold a pencil or read a letter of the alphabet.

    I assume this is also a sneaky way to begin to teach some children English — because they live in non-English neighborhood environments.

    There are plenty of kids in our nation today who are orphans with two living parents.

    • What better way to guarantee tens of millions of lifetime DEM voters? Educate, medicate, house, clothe and feed them! We have already crossed the Rubicon.

      • No worries Car In.
        With the blog awards that Keith has achieved, ( note the side bar), I’m sure that this site will be re-vamped to accept the ads that load and the traffic of the best commenters in the world, who sustain a sometime interminable wait to see their comment appear, or not.
        Hope is eternal.

  3. I have been thinking about our usual vacay outrage and it reminds me of a comment one of the wives made on Sister Wives–she said it was not good to compare your situation with that of the other wives–you might not want what they have, but if you compare, you get mad and don’t want them to have it. Yes, I think the Obamas are superficial, tone deaf people who like to lounge around hotels and be waited on, but I don’t want to be in Florida right now, eating too rich food, getting stomachaches, worrying about my pudge in a swimsuit, and just generally swanning around. But I also don’t want them to be. And that last makes me feel sort of small.

    • Yes. The Obamas are multi-millionaires in their own right so they are enjoying what we might do if we suddenly became wealthy. The difference is that we, as wealthy people, would pay for the whole thing ourselves, and not assume that hard-pressed taxpayers would pick up the tab.

      It’s just that things are so awful for most of us in the US with high un-employment, inflation, and a general feeling that things are going to get worse. We haven’t had this kind of atmosphere for a generation or two, so watching the most visible couple having a marvelous, posh vacation that we’re partly paying for just grates.

      They need to stop these expensive travels and go home once in a while. Other Presidents and their families did spend a lot of time at CampDavid or went home for a vacation from the WhiteHouse. .

      • I know I have said this before, but I also think they believe they are a cherished national treasure and Americans want them to have the best of everything. They haven’t noticed that sentiment, if it existed, only lasted a few months.

  4. Muslim fundamentalists are plotting to take over state schools, according to leaked documents.

    Activists have launched a campaign to oust headteachers using dirty tricks such as spreading false allegations and packing governing bodies with their supporters.

  5. Trouble in the Garden Gnome’s backyard?

    Contract negotiations are stalled for thousands of workers at casinos on the Strip and in downtown Las Vegas to the point where they may go on strike — and the sticking point is Obamacare.

    SNIP
    “The biggest hurdle to reaching settlements in Vegas is the new costs imposed on our health plan by Obamacare,” Donald “D” Taylor, president of Unite Here, the parent union of CU Local 226, told BuzzFeed in a statement. “Even though the president and Congress promised we could keep our health plan, the reality is, unless the law is fixed, that won’t be true.”

    • Saw that. I also looked at a map of the plane’s flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and see that there is not that much water to go across Oil slicks are telling us that it likely happened over water. If terrorism, might it make the forensics more difficult to determine?

      • You’d think so. (Brings to mind the phrase “Religion of Pieces”.)

        But, there was no distress call. It apparently just disappeared from radar.

  6. The sultan of Brunei has rejected foreign criticism of the countries impending introduction of a form of strict Islamic Sharia law, saying it is not a backwards step.

    SNIP

    Starting in April, Brunei will begin implementing a version of Sharia that allows for penalties such as amputation for theft and stoning for adultery.

  7. Scared myself for a moment. Scrolled down Comcast TV offerings (desperate) and I saw Queen of Versailles. At first I thought — wow, Mooch made a movie! But nope, not Mooch — some other nouveau riche queen.

  8. There are a fair number of internet polls out now about Rep. Pres.

    I am a big fan of Cruz, Walker, and Paul. I think a winning ticket would be Walker-Paul. If Paul would wait and accept VP. Cruz , Paul too much ego to cooperate. Walker results driven. Paul needed for libertarians and the young, but needs an adult to walk with.

    • Thank Gracepmc for posting the site.
      I was listening to Fox report this as I was fixing my coffee.
      21,000 Border Patrol agents told to retreat, keep guns holstered as drug smugglers drive buy.
      I wonder if they were told they have to wave to them as if in a parade.
      Hopefully those drug agents, will stop and vote for certain people while they are stopping by.

  10. BBC Report:
    Journalist attacked in Crimea. A team of journalist in Crimea, was filmed coming under attack by soldiers.
    One familiar faced journalist was shown sitting int the car discussing this issue.
    While I was watching and reading the apove info on the computer, I was watching a clip on TV from SNL,
    The actors potraying O AND KERRY< Than a film of O bear skinned looking tough, O in a Karate outfit, etc.
    I think the fake picture I saw earlier this week of a fake picture of O
    on a cartoon pony was funnier.

    • “ournalist attacked in Crimea. A team of journalist in Crimea, was filmed coming under attack by soldiers. One familiar faced journalist was shown sitting int the car discussing this issue.”

      This is not surprising considering Putin’s involvement. How many journalists has he had killed?

  11. I am not the judge but it appears that many of these so called pseudo intellectual politicians in DC as well many of their fans are going to burn hell….enjoy.
