Did you notice the fancy outfit that Michelle Obama was wearing during SOTU 2015?

“During the hour-long speech, the president tried to pretend that he identified with middle class Americans, despite the fact that they have been hit hard by his policies.”

When the camera turned on Michelle, everybody noticed her fancy expensive outfit.

OBAMA TO DELIVER STATE OF UNION ADDRESS—Obama invites illegal to address

    Obama invites illegal to address

by SPUTNIK | JANUARY 20, 2015

US President Barack Obama will be delivering his State of the Union address on Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. local time (4:00 GMT), laying out his policy agenda before the Republican-controlled US Congress, discussing tax hikes for the rich, cybersecurity legislation, criminal justice and immigration reforms.

Over the past month Obama has traveled across the United States, giving a preview of what he will present when he addresses Congress, and allowing members of the Republican opposition in the House and Senate to mount a response.

White House Guest List Indicates President’s Agenda

On Monday, the White House published a list of 22 guests from the general public that will be attending the State of the Union speech, giving some sense of the president’s priorities entering 2015.

“These guests exemplify the themes and ideals that the President lays out in his address,” the White House press release stated.

Among the individuals, invited to attend the State of the Union and watch the president’s speech with First Lady Michelle Obama, are an individual enrolled in a community college, an African-American teenager from Chicago, focused on safety in his community, prisoners released from Cuba late last year, patients who received care through the Affordable Care Act, a wounded veteran from Afghanistan, individuals struggling with the current US minimum wage, and young immigrants to the United States.

Domestic Issues Top the Agenda

On Tuesday, the president is expected to raise a number of domestic issues with members of Congress, including raising the minimum wage, providing students with two years of free community college, tax hikes for the rich and extended tax breaks for lower income families, alongside cuts to mortgage insurance rates.

There has already been opposition from the Republican majority in both the US House and the Senate to a number of the president’s initiatives. The proposal leaked out of the White House last week announced $235 billion in additional taxes, collected from top earners, and has created some sore feelings on the right and left, with some US media pundits calling the initiative a “Robin Hood Tax.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s spokesperson referred to the president’s tax proposal as “redistributing wealth,” arguing that the president’s proposed reforms, explained in a Friday White House fact sheet, will overcomplicate the US tax code, rather than simplify it.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch also blasted President Obama for “slapping American small businesses, savers and investors with more tax hikes” with his new tax proposal that will be fully unveiled on Tuesday.

The president has also taken criticism from Republican House Majority Leader John Boehner over his proposal for two free years of community college for qualifying students.

“With no details or information on the cost, this seems more like a talking point than a plan,” Boehner’s spokesperson told the press when the plan was revealed last week.

One area of the Obama administration’s domestic agenda that may receive broad support is the possibility of the president putting criminal justice reform on the agenda. The issue has grabbed national headlines in the wake of numerous police killings of young, African-Americans. Currently there are multiple pieces of legislation to address racial inequality in the US criminal justice system that enjoy bipartisan congressional support.

National Security, International Issues

In the national security arena, President Obama appears positioned to gain traction on his agenda, which was outlined in the president’s Friday press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

At the top of the list of national security initiatives is Obama’s recently announced cybersecurity legislation, a proposal that is likely to garner extensive bipartisan support from the Congress, following high level cyber hacks against US companies and government agencies in recent months.

“I’m glad [Obama] is pushing to address cyber legislation,” said Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire when the president rolled out his cyber initiative last week. Ayotte, a leading member of the Senate Armed Services Committee added that the US has stalled such legislation in the past, noting, “I think we can’t afford to stall anymore.”

However, on issues of homeland security, the Congress and the president still remain divided, with a temporary spending limit looming over the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) until February. Republican lawmakers imposed the spending limit on the DHS at the end of last year as a mechanism to defund President Obama’s November executive action on immigration reform.

Obama has stated on multiple occasions that he will veto any DHS appropriations bill, defunding his immigration action, creating uncertainty both on the status of the executive action and the continued funding for the third largest US federal agency, DHS.

Last year, the US Congress was united in their support for tougher measures against Russia, including new sanctions and weapons provisions to the government of Ukraine. The Obama administration has so far maintained its position of prohibiting the transfer of offensive weapons to the government of Kiev, but the president announced in his Friday speech with Cameron that he would keep up the pressure on Russia, saying the transatlantic alliance agrees “on the need to maintain strong sanctions against Russia.”

Presidential Veto Threat

“There is so much we can get accomplished for the American people, if the president’s willing to work with us,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in a press release last week.

President Obama has made similar overtures for collaboration to the new, Republican-controlled Congress, but has so far stood his ground on key policy positions. In the first week the US Congress was in session, Obama threatened to veto nearly half a dozen pieces of legislation, including new sanctions on Iran, and legislation for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

During his six years in office, Obama has vetoed only two pieces of legislation, but has also enjoyed majority support in both houses of Congress in his first term, and a Democratic majority in the Senate for the first two years of his second term.

The upcoming congressional work session, following Tuesday’s State of the Union address, will last until the late-February district working session. The legislative agenda will be set by House and Senate Republicans, but also informed by initiatives introduced by President Obama in his Tuesday address.

OBAMAS DINE AT RESTAURANT CHARGING $500,000 FOR MEMBERSHIP

President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, spent the first night of the new year at Vintage Cave, an upscale restaurant in Hawaii.

“At Vintage Cave Honolulu, one can enjoy exceptional food and wine at the hands of gifted masters of the culinary arts. ‘Chef’s recommendation’ commands a gravitas guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning palate. Seasoned sommelier’s conduct the process of pairing wine and food with true finesse and style. Secure in the natural embrace of the cave-like environment, guests are encouraged to relax, ‘hit reset’ and escape the ordinary,” Vintage Cave’s description reads on its website.

As Time’s Zeke Miller pointed out, membership at the restaurant can set you back $500,000.

The half million dollars is to become a “Charter Member.” A cheaper membership option the restaurant offers is “Special Member,” which costs only $50,000.

The restaurant’s prix fixe menu is reportedly $295, with a 13-15 course meal. One local magazine estimates “total bill for two, with wine, will approach $1,000.”

Michelle Obama is a Race-Baiting Liar

Michelle Obama is once again coming alongside the usurper-in-chief to help stir up more division. And once again, just like her husband, she’s lying to do it. What once was used as a story from Mrs. Obama to promote that she had done a good deed has now been changed to claim that she was discriminated against because she’s black.

Michelle Obama was recently interviewed in People magazine,

The protective bubble that comes with the presidency – the armored limo, the Secret Service detail, the White House – shields Barack and Michelle Obama from a lot of unpleasantness. But their encounters with racial prejudice aren’t as far in the past as one might expect. And they obviously still sting.

“I think people forget that we’ve lived in the White House for six years,” the first lady told PEOPLE, laughing wryly, along with her husband, at the assumption that the first family has been largely insulated from coming face-to-face with racism.

“Before that, Barack Obama was a black man that lived on the South Side of Chicago, who had his share of troubles catching cabs,” Mrs. Obama said in the Dec. 10 interview appearing in the new issue of PEOPLE.

“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”

However, in a 2012 interview with David Letterman, Obama told a different story… about the same story.

“No one knew that was me,” Obama said. “Because a woman actually walked up to me, right? I was in the detergent aisle, and she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, cover’s blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not. And the only thing she said — I reached up, because she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down. She said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’ That was my interaction. I felt so good.”

First, I have to confess that I am not even buying that Michelle Obama went to a Target store, much less engaged in this now questionable scenario. Second, I have to wonder if she is not only a race baiter, but also a height challenged discriminator. She was obviously using the short woman down in the 2012 story to make herself look big (ok, she is big…and her biceps are fairly big….almost man-lie).

We shouldn’t expect anything but racism from Michelle Obama. After all, both she and Toni Townes-Whitley, the creator of the miserable failure that is the Obamacare website, were members of a racist groups at Princeton: The Organization of Black Unity (OBU) and the Third World Center (TWC), which engaged in a confrontation with Jewish students on campus.” And if you want to read more about Michelle’s own racist background, take a look at this piece.

michelle_obama05But there was also the view that Obama has of herself as “above the little people,” while at the same time trying to associate with them.

Mr. Obama then chimed in to People saying, “There’s no black male my age, who’s a professional, who hasn’t come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn’t hand them their car keys.”

And that’s because you’re black? Seriously? Honestly, with the way he conducts himself, I’m not surprised if someone didn’t do that, but it would have nothing to do with the color of his skin, but the content of his character.

Mrs. Obama also said that he was at a black-tie dinner, and because he was wearing a tuxedo someone asked him to get their coffee. Again, Seriously? Sorry, I can’t take her serious.

“The small irritations or indignities that we experience are nothing compared to what a previous generation experienced,” President Obama said. “It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It’s another thing for my son to be mistaken for a robber and to be handcuffed, or worse, if he happens to be walking down the street and is dressed the way teenagers dress.”

Yeah, let’s just let that little statement sink in. I’m white and I’ve been asked in a grocery store by white people and black people alike if I work there. Does that make them racist? I think not. I’ve also been asked if I would retrieve something at a store for someone before. Does that make them racist? Again, I think not.

I’ve actually never been in a limousine and never parked at a place that required a valet, I wonder what Mr. Obama thinks about that. He probably thinks because I’m white that it’s not racism and he would be right. It isn’t racism any more than his wife’s bogus story about Target, his waiter’s tale or his claim about a valet. It’s all typical lies and BS from the liar-in-chief.

But hey, the Obama’s love to race bait because it’s what gets them where they want to go… Like a 17-day vacation they took at taxpayer expense to Hawaii just after the interview with People. That’s racism in America for you!

Obama knows nothing of what men like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. endured or what men like Vernon Johns endured for the sake of the black community. They weren’t standing with their hands out, living off the theft of those around them. They were looking to live their lives without being treated like animals. Now, we endure animals who only look to have a government steal from others and redistribute it to them.

As my friend Erik Rush recently wrote, “If one subscribes to Obama’s origins narrative (wherein he was sired by a Kenyan named Barack Obama), the president has no heritage linking him to black Americans, their history, or their struggles. Rush is exactly right. Obama can’t identify with black Americans simply because he is not a black American.

Unbelievable: Obama Sticks Americans With The Bill For A Huge Christmas Gift To His Family

Screen Shot 2014-12-19 at 11.23.33 AM

In a couple of days, the president and family…

NORVELL ROSE

As much as Barack and Michelle Obama try to position themselves as everyday Americans facing the same sorts of personal and parenting problems and challenges as the rest of us, one look at the first family’s vacation schedule tells a far different story.

Yes, there’s the occasional strategic snapshot of the First Lady wearing a ball cap as she shops at a store popular with the masses…

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 4.12.07 PM

…but then there’s the shot of a bare-chested Barack enjoying the rays during a lengthy, taxpayer-subsidzed vacation in Hawaii, as seen above.

In a couple of days, the president and family will head back to the Hawaiian isles for another lavish getaway — their seventh straight Christmas vacation in the president’s “home state.”

Obama says he is “eagerly looking forward” to his time at a pricey, private home he’s rented for the occasion. White House sources say the first family will spend 17 days there.

And who pays for the president’s indulgence? Via theblaze.com:

…the president’s family covers the cost of a private beach front residence in Kailua, Oahu, for the span of the vacation, reportedly dubbed a ‘Winter White House’ that costs up to $3,500 a day, or $75,000 a month.

Still, taxpayers help foot the bill for security and travel costs: A similar vacation last year cost more than $1.4 million.
Earlier this year, Judicial Watch issued a report saying that records it obtained show how heavily the portion of the presidential vacation bill can fall on the already burdened backs of taxpayers:

President Obama incurred $7,396,531.20 in flight expenses alone for his 2013 vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard and his trip to California to appear on the Jay Leno Show.
The president of Judicial Watch said that the Obama vacations to faraway and often expensive locations put undue pressure on taxpayers’ pocketbooks.

“The Obamas are abusing the public trust and the taxpayers with unnecessary luxurious vacations and travel,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“These staggering costs show why these documents were covered up and we had to sue in federal court to get them. Another transparency fail for the Obama gang.”
A likely result of the latest Hawaii trip for the Obamas will be another media round of “which president has taken more vacation time away from the White House?”

And while debates will no doubt arise over numbers of vacation days, it can still be argued that the Obamas have spent more time at lavish and expensive getaways than did predecessors, such has:

Reagan, who often went to his California ranch;
George H.W. Bush, who often vacationed at his family home in Maine; or
George W. Bush, who frequently went to his Texas ranch.
