Barack Obama Shakes Hands with Cuban President Raul Castro … What’s a Hand Shake Among Commie Friends?
NOTHING SURPRISES ME ANY MORE FROM THE
MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE YURI OBAMA …
This morning in Soweto, Johannesburg President Barack Obama shook hands with Cuban leader Raúl Castro at the memorial for the late President Nelson Mandel. Hmm, I am not quite sure why anyone is surprised, this is the man who has embraced America’ enemies and made deals with them, bowed to Saudi princes and other foreign leaders, while treating our closest allies like dirt. What’s in a hand shake? A lot.
But like I said, what is a handshake among communist comrades, water does seek its own level now, doesn’t it? It would appear that Hot Air agrees as they opine, “One’s a communist who’s reduced his country to ruins, the other’s Raul Castro”.
But of course CNN was quick to defend and make excuses for Ovama’s actions. Hmm, guess it was a good thing Adolf Hitler was not attending.
Obama knew, of course, that Castro would be on stage. But refusing to shake Castro’s hand would not have been in keeping with Mandela’s legacy of reconciliation. And it was not the first handshake between American-Cuban leaders. In 2000, at the United Nations, then-President Bill Clinton shook hands with Fidel Castro, the leader of the Cuban Revolution, its first revolutionary president, and Raul’s brother.
Obama says he wants to improve relations with Cuba, but disagreements over human rights violations and other issues continue to keep the countries apart.
The handshake came before Obama’s speech, in which he made remarks about reconciliation.
“It took a man like Madiba to free not just the prisoner, but the jailer as well – (applause) – to show that you must trust others so that they may trust you; to teach that reconciliation is not a matter of ignoring a cruel past, but a means of confronting it with inclusion and generosity and truth,” Obama said.
The President also made sure to include a comment about freedom, which seemed directly aimed at dictatorial regimes.
Samantha Scheibe,George Zimmerman’s Girlfriend Wants to Drop Charges of Aggrevated Assault and ‘Be With Him’
I GUESS THIS WAS PRETTY PREDICTABLE … SOME ONE HAS HAD SOME MIND CHANGING.
27 year old Samantha Scheibe, the girl friend of George Zimmerman, who called 911 and claimed that he was vandalizing her stuff and threatening her with a gun, no longer wants to press charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault against him.Zimmerman was charged with domestic violence after supposedly pointing a gun at his girlfriend, listen to the 911 call. Zimmerman had posted a $9000 bail, was told to stay away from his girlfriend and no guns.
In fact, she not only does not want to know press charges against him, she wants to be with him. Good grief, here is a match made some where. DA’s have to now determine whether they still want to pursue charges against Zimmerman without the cooperation of Scheibe. Mediaite reports, Zimmerman faced charges of aggravated assault after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, requested in writing that the court amend his bail conditions so that he can have contact with her. She wrote that Zimmerman “never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner.” Scheibe added, “I want to be with George.”
George Zimmerman’s girlfriend who called Florida police to say he was breaking her stuff and was brandishing a weapon no longer wants to press charges against him and instead wants to get back together with him.
Zimmerman, 30, who faces a felony aggravated assault charge as well as lesser charges stemming from the incident, is asking to have conditions of his bail modified so he can resume contact with Samantha Scheibe.
According to court documents filed by Zimmerman’s attorney Jayne Weintraub, Scheibe, 27, gave a sworn statement in which she wrote, “I do not want George Zimmerman charged.”
A note to George Zimmerman, go away. Stay out of the media and stop this nonsense.
Democrat Senator in Serious Trouble Because of Barack Obama and Obamacare … Democrats, Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid.
According to a new poll from Citizens United Political Victory Fund by Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway of the polling company, Inc./WomanTrend, shows that incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Pryor is in serious trouble and trails Republican challenger Tom Cotton, 48% to 41%. Many Democrat politicians in “red” states are considered vulnerable because of their support of Obamacare and the disaster and lie that it has turned out to be. Pryor trails badly with Independents, 31%-52%. Also, Barack Obama and Obamacare have a favorable, unfavorable in Arkansas of 35%-61% and 29%-62%, respectively.
Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor trails his Republican challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton, by seven points among likely voters in Arkansas, 48 percent to 41 percent, according to a new poll from a conservative group that says his support of the health care reform law is costing him.
The survey, shared exclusively with POLITICO, was conducted Friday and Saturday for the Citizens United Political Victory Fund by Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway of the polling company, Inc./WomanTrend.
Cotton is ahead among independents by 21 points and among women by 4 points.
“Mark Pryor is synonymous with Obamacare and Obamacare is synonymous with making life worse for the American people,” said David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United. “That’s why Pryor is losing to Cotton in the Arkansas Senate race.”
Pryor, considered by many to be the most vulnerable of the incumbents running for reelection, is viewed favorably by 44 percent of Arkansas voters and unfavorably by 39 percent. The poll found that only one-third of independents view Pryor favorably and 52 percent see him in a negative light.
I guess Barack Obama must have promised Mark Pryor and the other Democrats who voted for Obamacare against the will of the American people, you can keep your Senate and House seat, if you like your Senate and House seat. We all know how that worked for American insureds.
GOOD GRIEF, ARE YOU KIDDING ME … I FEEL SO MUCH SAFER … WAR ON
TERRORISM SOCK MONKEYS!!!
A TSA agent confiscated “Rooster Monkburn’s” six shooter and threaten to call the police on Phyllis May of Redmond, Washington at the St. Louis, Missouri airport. Just one small, actually very small detail, Rooster Monkburn is a sock monkey and the pistol confiscated might be about 2 inches in size. REALLY, you can’t make this stuff up. So much for common sense these days. The TSA agent actually said, she was confiscating the tiny toy because “it looks like a gun.” Wow, so does that mean if I pointed my fore finger and thumb like a gun, they would cut my fingers off because they looked like a gun as well?
So instead of racially profiling terrorists, we disarm sock monkeys instead. You know, there is stupid, there is frigging stupid and then there is TSA stupid. When exactly did we lose all semblance of common sense in America?
“His pistol was in there,” she says of the sock monkey “Rooster Monkburn,” a take-off on John Wayne character “Rooster Cogburn” from the film “True Grit”. May and her husband were going through the screening process when she noticed that one of her bags was missing.
“And the (TSA agent) held it up and said ‘whose is this?’” she said. “I realized oh, my God this is my bag.”
May said the TSA agent went through the bag, through the sewing supplies and found the two-inch long pistol.
“She said ‘this is a gun,’” said May. “I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey.”
“She said ‘If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn’t know if it was real or not,’ and I said ‘really?’” said May.
The TSA agent told May she would have to confiscate the tiny gun and was supposed to call the police.
“I said well go ahead,” said May. “And I said really? You’re kidding me right, and she said no it looks like a gun.”
“She took my monkey’s gun,” said May, who has retained her sense of humor.
No terrorist groups, including the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah or the Muslim Brotherhood, have taken credit for “Rooster Monkburn” and his pistol who we all know his real name is Abdul.
Search Continues for Family Missing Since Sunday, 12/8/13 in Snow & Cold in Northwest Nevada: James Glanton, 34, Christina MacIntee, 25, His Two Children Evan Glanton & Chloe Glanton, and MacIntee’s Niece and Nephew, Shelby Fitzpatrick & Tate McIntee (Update: All Found Alive & Safe)
The race is on against snow and cold temperatures to find a family of six who are missing in the Northwest mountains of Nevada.
Rescue teams racing against the clock and the bitter cold to find 34 year old James Glanton, his girlfriend 25 year old Christina McIntee, his two children, Evan Glanton and Chloe Glanton, and Christina’s niece and nephew, Shelby Fitzpatrick and Tate McIntee. The four missing children are ages, a 10 year old, two 4 year olds and a 3 year old. The six disappeared in the Seven Troughs mountain range on a snow outing to play in the snow.
The family has not had any communication with others since they went missing, according to Sheila Reitz of the sheriff’s office.
They went to the Seven Troughs area on isolated federal land about noon on Sunday in a silver Jeep with a black top, authorities said. It was unclear what supplies they might have been carrying.
“I’m hoping they all huddled together and stayed in the Jeep,” said Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chuck Allen, who added that the area has spotty cellular coverage. “That would be a best-case scenario.”
Frigid weather gripping much of the United States led to a frenzied search in northwest Nevada, where rescue teams are searching a mountainous area for two adults and four children who went to play in the snow and never returned.
James Glanton, 34, and Christina MacIntee, 25, are missing, along with Glanton’s two children and MacIntee’s niece and nephew. The children are 3 to 10 years old, the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office said.
The group set out Sunday for Seven Troughs mountain range and haven’t been seen since.
Fears intensified as the temperature plummeted to below zero.
Amanda Fitzpatrick, mother of 10-year-old Shelby Fitzpatrick, has joined the search in the freezing cold.
“It’s been extremely hard, probably the hardest 24 to 36 hours of my life,” she told CNN’s Piers Morgan. “It’s my baby girl.”
Temperatures in storm-stricken parts of the country were expected to remain 10- to 20 degrees below normal for the remainder of the week, the National Weather Service said.
Overnight temperatures in Lovelock, Nev., near the mountain range were below zero, WeatherUnderground.com indicated.
UPDATE II: FANTASTIC NEWS OUT OF NEVADA … CNN is reporting that all six missing family members have been found alive and well!!!
A family of six survived two days in wintry Nevada mountains by starting a fire and then bringing warm rocks into their overturned Jeep, preventing frostbite to the couple and four small children, local residents said Tuesday.
When three residents finally found the family and their vehicle during a massive search, the family had little food left, so resident Salvador Paredes pulled a candy bar from his pocket and shared it with them, Paredes said.
The group was found safe in an area called Trinity Canyon, according to the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office. They were discovered from a distance by a volunteer searcher using binoculars to scan mountainsides, the sheriff’s office said. It wasn’t immediately clear which of the three residents made the discovery.
All six were in stable condition with “no frostbite, just some exposure issues,” said Patty Bianchi, CEO of Pershing General Hospital. The family consists of a man and woman who have two children together; the woman also was traveling with her nephew and niece, the sheriff’s office said.
UPDATE III: 6 missing adults, children found alive in Nevada.
“Their father kept them alive and well,” said Patty Bianchi, CEO of Pershing General Hospital, where the six were taken. “Everybody is in good shape. There was no frostbite. They are stable. They suffered a little exposure and dehydration, but that is all.”
About 100 well-wishers lined the street outside the hospital and broke into cheers when two of the smallest children were taken from an ambulance. The others walked into the hospital on their own.
“The mood where I’m at’s ecstatic,” said Col. Tim Hahn of the Civil Air Patrol, which used several planes to search for the group. “We are thrilled beyond words.”
70% Of Calfornia’s Doctors Expected To Boycott Obamacare … But I Thought Obama Promised You Could Keep Your Doctor?
I guess MSNBC would consider 70% of doctors racists …
From The Washington Times, 70% of doctors in California expected to boycott Obamacare. The dirty little secret is just because you are enrolled in a healthcare plan, does not mean you have access to doctors and hospitals of your choice. Physicians have to belong to the network and accept what looks like Medicaid reimbursements. So much for that Obama promise, that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, PERIOD!
An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state’s Obamacare health insurance exchange and won’t participate, the head of the state’s largest medical association said.
“It doesn’t surprise me that there’s a high rate of nonparticipation,” said Dr. Richard Thorp, president of the California Medical Association.
California offers one of the lowest government reimbursement rates in the country — 30 percent lower than federal Medicare payments. And reimbursement rates for some procedures are even lower.
“Some physicians have been put in the network and they were included basically without their permission,” Lisa Folberg said. She is a CMA’s vice president of medical and regulatory Policy.
“They may be listed as actually participating, but not of their own volition,”
“This is a dirty little secret that is not really talked about as they promote Covered California,” Waters said. He called the exchange’s doctors list a “shell game” because “the vast majority” of his doctors are not participating.
But if you want to pay more, you can keep your doctor … so says Obamacare architect. So let’s understand this, Obama just created a two tier insurance plan, one for the rich and one for the peasants?
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Says “Obamacare” Is Same As Using The “N” Word … The Liberal MSM Playing the Race Card as They Play Chief WH Propagandists
WOW, when I first watched this VIDEO I thought it was a SNL parody skit. Then realized this lib was actually being serious. I guess she went to that media/WH meeting about how to shill for Obamacare! Yup, NO MEDIA BIAS HERE …
Five years later, two elections later, record number of Americans on food stamps, real unemployment at all time highs, median household incomes at all time lows, job participation at all time lows, the Middle East in chaos, greater terror threats to America than ever before, millions of Americans losing their insurance, premium costs skyrocketing, scandals like IRS-date, AP-gate, Fast & Furious, NSA-gate and the liberal MSM is using the race card with the blessing of the Obama White House. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is saying that by saying “Obamacare” is the same as using the “N” word and you are a racist. In a cheer-leading Obama rant that would have made Joseph Goebbels blush, she suggested the term “Obamacare” and the N-word are interchangeable, claiming both were “conceived by a group of wealthy white men who needed to . . . render [a black man] inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.” Hmm, what was Reaganomics, Romneycare, Hillary-healthcare? What about Voo-doo economics? Were all these racists too? It’s called political discourse you IDIOT!
How very sad that liberals in the media continue to try to divide America and make everything about race in an attempt to stop people from criticizing a disastrous law by calling them racists. A note to MSNBC and Melissa Harris-Perry that have you taken a look at how “We the People” feel about Barack Obama? There is a reason why Barack Obama is at an all-time low in the polls, down 23% with Hispanics, down 17% with Non-Whites and down 14% with women, are they racist too? Are the millennial’s who voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008 and 2012 racist too, 57% disapprove of Obamacare and 52% want it repealed..
HARRIS-PERRY: “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.
“President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents, and at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he’d achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word — a belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate.
“And so he decided if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. So he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting: ‘If that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’
“Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare! That’s right! I said it and I’m not ashamed, and neither is President Obama!” (More HERE)
TEAR DOWN THAT COMMIE STATUE …
Hundreds of thousands of protesters in Ukraine took to the streets in another mass demonstration of anger against President Viktor F. Yanukovich’s decision to break off negotiations with the European Union. They toppled the statue of Communist leader Lenin in a symbolic demonstration and then took a sledgehammer to it.
Public protests thundered into a full-throttle civil uprising in Ukraine on Sunday, as hundreds of thousands of protesters answered President Viktor F. Yanukovich’s dismissiveness with their biggest rally so far, demanding that he and his government resign.
At the height of the unrest on Sunday night, a seething crowd toppled and smashed a statue of Lenin, the most prominent monument to the Communist leader in Kiev. The act was heavy with symbolism, underscoring the protesters’ rage at Russia over its role in the events that first prompted the protests: Mr. Yanukovich’s abrupt refusal to sign sweeping political and free-trade agreements with the European Union.
After an electrifying assembly in Independence Square in the center of Kiev, the main focus of the protests, the huge crowd surged across the capital, erecting barriers to block the streets around the presidential headquarters and pitching huge tents in strategic intersections. They were not challenged by the police, who have largely disengaged since their bloody crackdown on a group of protesters on Nov. 30 sharply increased outrage at the government.
Radio Free Europe was Live blogging the event.
Interestingly enough, as those in the Ukraine tear down the statue of Lenin, many think that US President Barack Obama is looking to erect it.
