In an interview with Ahmad Rashad, NBA great and Hall of Famer Michael Jordan trash-talked President Barack Obama’s golf game, calling him “a hack” and a “shitty golfer.” Talk about some straight talk. Rashad, looked at the camera with a concerned and puzzled lok following Jordan’s hack comment and said, “if he really wanted to say that, the president of the United States is a hack? YES HE DID BOBBY MOORE, I mean Ahmad Rashad. What part about the fact that Michael Jordan is bigger than Barack Obama don’t you get? It must be another disappointing day for Barack Obama, Democrats are running away from him, can’t remember his name or even if they had voted for him in the past. Now,
“I never played with Obama but I would,” he said. “But no, it’s OK I’d take him out. He’s a hack. It’d be all day playing with him.”
Rashad, looking awkwardly at the camera, asked Jordan if he really wanted to “say that, the president of the United States is a hack?”
“I never said he wasn’t a great politician,” Jordan said. “I’m just saying he’s a sh***y golfer.”
A note to Michael Jordan … I am saying that Obama isn’t a great politician, in fact he is a political hack as well.]]>

With just days ahead of the 2014 midterm elections and incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu is in a close race, she did what comes natural for Democrats when they have nothing to run on of their own, play the race and sex card. In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Mary Landrieu stated that Barack Obama has had a difficult time politically in the South because, “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It”s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves.” WHAT? In a mark of desperation, Mary Landrieu went there. How tired is this constant cry of racism and war on woman? Sorry Mary, but Obama’s struggles in the South have everything to do with his policies like his anti-energy ones and Obamacare.
This divisive stunt by Landrieu might just cost the Democrats any close election in Southern states like North Carolina, Georgia and Arkansas. The issue before the election will be whether these Democrat candidates agree with Mary Landrieu that the South is racist and sexist.
LANDRIEU: One of the main reasons is because his energy policies are really different than ours. I mean, we’re a pro-production state. We wanna drill almost anywhere. People believe that it’s an opportunity for Americans to become energy self-sufficient.
One of the reasons that the president’s so unpopular is because HE put the moratorium on off-shore drilling. remember? After Macondo. And our state was furious about that. Now he could have shut down the BP operations but he didn’t, he shut down the whole Gulf. When you shut down the whole gulf of Mexico it puts a lot of people here at risk and out of business. That’s number one.
I’ll be very very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It”s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place. So we’ve had to work a little bit harder on that, but you know, the people trust me, I believe. Really they do. Trust me to do the right thing for the state.
Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu said Thursday that the issue of race is a major reason that President Barack Obama has struggled politically in Southern states.
“I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu told NBC News in an interview. “It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”
Noting that the South is “more of a conservative place,” she added that women have also faced challenges in “presenting ourselves.
Comment in response from Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who called it “remarkably divisive.” The Gateway Pundit reminds us that Bobby Jindal is an Indian-American.
“She appears to be living in a different century,” he said in a statement. “Implied in her comments is the clear suggestion that President Obama and his policies are unpopular in Louisiana because of his ethnicity. That is a major insult by Senator Landrieu to the people of Louisiana and I flatly reject it.”
EXIT QUESTION: Mary Landrieu how do you explain Obama’s approval rating in the 30′s in Lilly-white New Hampshire?
Alexandra Greenwall’s mother believes that her daughter may be on her way to her dad’s house in Madrid or may be wandering the neighborhood.
Alexandra Greenwall is a 10-year-old white female, light complexion, freckles and long dark hair. According to information from the police, she was possibly wearing pink tennis shoes but no other clothing description is available.
Missing – Alexandra Greenwall
Alexandra Greenwall’s mom says she put 10-year-old Alexandra to bed at around 10:00 Wednesday night and that was the last time she saw her. Greenwall’s family says it appears she changed out of her pajamas in the middle of the night, stuffed a set of clothes into her backpack and took off through the family’s back door.
Her mom says she may have run away because she was mad at them for punishing her. She says just Wednesday they took away some of her stuffed animals because she wasn’t behaving.
She believes Greenwall may be on her way to her dad’s house in Madrid or may be wandering the neighborhood. Rio Rancho police have been searching all day for her, looking in neighbor’s backyards and homes and showing everyone that passes through the neighborhood her picture.
“Horrified and just at a loss I have no idea what to think I just want to hope for the best and hope that she’s hiding somewhere and that she’s ok and I just hope to god that nobody has taken her,” Greenwall’s mother Katherine Allen said.
If anyone has any information regarding Alexandra Greenwall’s whereabouts, please call call 505-891-7226.]]>
Pennsylvania State Police are confirming that cop killer Eric Matthew Frein has been captured and is in police custody after he was found hiding in an airport hanger at the Pocono Mountains Municipal Airport in Tobyhanna, PA. The police called him out and he surrendered without incident. Eric Matthew Frein is suspected in the September 12 ambush shooting that killed 38 year old Cpl. Bryon Dickson and critically wounded Trooper Alex Douglass outside the barracks during a late night shift change outside the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Blooming Grove. The FBI had named Frein one of its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives.
“I can confirm that we have taken Eric Frein into custody. Further information will be released at a later time. No further information will be released or confirmed at this time,” she said in an email to reporters.
According to a federal law enforcement source, Frein was caught hiding in a building at the Pocono Mountains Municipal Airport in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania. He was arrested by U.S. marshals, the source said.
Suspected cop killer Eric Frein has been captured by Pennsylvania State Police after a 48-day manhunt, law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the arrest told NBC News on Thursday.
Frein, 31, was captured in an airport hangar at Pocono Mountain Airport in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania, a senior law enforcement told NBC News. He is accused of killing State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding Trooper Alex Douglass in an ambush on the Blooming Grove barracks on Sept. 12. Police found a diary entry, his AK-47, two homemade pipe bombs and several campsites, they but hadn’t been able to capture him until Thursday.
Hmm, haven’t we seen this photo-op before of doctors in lab coats? As only the Community agitator in Chief Barack Obama could do, yesterday he took an issue like Ebola that could affects all Americans and does not care whether one is white, black, brown, green or purple, whether one is straight or gay, man or woman, rich or poor, or Republican or Democrat and managed to divisively politicize it. But what else is new for Obama? Believe it or not Mr. President, we can owe some one a debt of gratitude, consider them heroes and quarantine them so that the good they did in West Africa does not become a bad in the United States.
Obama stated in a stern voice, too bad he does not show the same resolve when speaking about terrorism: “When they come home, they deserve to be treated properly, they deserve to be treated like the heroes they are.” Who says they are not? Just curious though, why didn’t the so-called Commander in Chief say the same about the US military who are in West Africa battling Ebola? When our US military heroes come home, they face a mandatory 21 day quarantine, and properly so.
Once again the out of touch “contrarian president” who has to keep Americans continually pissed off, goes against the will of the American people who by an 80% to 17% margin want Ebola quarantines.
President Barack Obama repeated his message that America needs to support those treating the Ebola outbreak in Africa, saying “the world owes them a debt of gratitude” — even as authorities in Maine weighed whether to enforce a quarantine on a nurse there.
“What we need right now is these shock troops that are out there leading globally. And we can’t discourage that, we need to encourage it, and applaud it,” Obama said Wednesday at the White House, flanked by about a dozen workers who had either just come back from Africa or were preparing to go.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
A new Marquette Law School Poll finds Republican Gov. Scott Walker leading Democratic challenger Mary Burke 50 percent to 43 percent among likely voters in the Wisconsin governor’s race. Another 3 percent say that they are undecided or that they do not know whom they will support, while 1 percent say that they will vote for someone else. Likely voters are those who say that they are certain to vote in the November election.
Among registered voters in the poll, Walker receives 46 percent and Burke 45 percent, with 4 percent undecided and 1 percent saying that they will vote for someone else.
“Shifting turnout intentions have provided most of the dynamics of the race this fall,” said Marquette Law School Poll director Charles Franklin. “While the results among all registered voters have varied between a tie and a 3-point Walker edge, the likely-voter results have ranged from a 2-point Burke advantage to the current 7-point Walker lead.”
According to RCP average polling Walker leads by 2% and trending up.
MU poll has Walker leading Burke – Favorability ratings:
There is more than one factor behind the pro-Walker tilt in the new survey.
First, Republicans are expressing more certainty than Democrats about voting. In the new poll, 93% of Republicans and 82% of Democrats say they are certain to vote, reflecting a potential turnout gap. As a result, likely voters in Marquette’s new poll are a more Republican group than likely voters in its last survey.
Second, there is a sizable shift toward Walker among independents, who have bounced around in the polling. Independents were tied among likely voters two weeks ago but preferred Walker 52% to 37% in the latest poll.
Third, there is some decline in Burke’s image. Among registered voters, 38% view Burke favorably while 45% view her unfavorably. Among likely voters, 39% view her favorably while 49% view her unfavorably. Until now, Burke’s “positive” and “negative” ratings have roughly paralleled each other as she has become better known.
Former 5 time Presidential candidate Ralph Nader had some strong words for Hillary Clinton calling her a “menace to the United States of America.” Although, many of you might be nodding your head in approval, Nader’s reasons for calling Hillary Clinton, the presumptive 2016 Democrat nominee for president, a menace to the USA are for much different reasons than your own. Nader stated that “Well, Hillary is a corporatist and a militarist,” and “She thinks Obama is too weak. He doesn’t kill enough people overseas.” Average folks may think that is crazy talk, but guess who doesn’t … what has become the Democrat moonbat base who want some one like the far-Left Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016. Don’t get me wrong, Hillary Clinton is a far-Left liberal who would be disastrous for America if she became president in 2016. She is much farther Left than her hubby, former president Bubba Clinton. But the Democrat party has lurched so far Left these days that it is unrecognizable and has become socialist and thus the reason why many libs do not think Hillary is liberal enough and would prefer a candidate like Elizabeth Warren.
“Well, Hillary is a corporatist and a militarist,” Mr. Nader said, Raw Story reported. “Do we want another corporatist and militarist? She thinks Obama is too weak. He doesn’t kill enough people overseas. So she’s a menace to the United States of America.”
“What we need is people — regardless of whether they are libertarians or not — that pull back on the empire and make Wall Street subordinate to Main Street,” Mr. Nader said, Raw Story reported. “People have got to start thinking, doing their homework, become informed voters and not coronet another corporatist and militarist.’

My how times have changed, especially when Millennial finally realized they were duped by Barack Obama who has done little for hope and change, transparency or to change anything in Washington, DC except make things worse. Barack Obama and Democrats have lost the “Millennial Vote”. A shocking Harvard University poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds showed that they will be“definitely be voting,” 51% want the Republicans in charge, while 47% are favoring Democratic control. According to the poll, Democrats are even losing ground with Hispanics as well. How bad is it for Democrats when Millennials abandon Democratic sinking ship.
And you wonder why Democrat candidates are avoiding the “toxic” president and can not even find it in themselves to even say they have voted for him, when they obviously had. If all of this polling does turn out to be correct, the Democrats could be experiencing a colossal disaster election eve.
Harvard University on Wednesday provided new proof that the Democrats are going to be broadsided in Tuesday’s national elections as millennial voters, in a shocking shift, now prefer a Republican-controlled Congress and give President Obama his second lowest grade ever.
A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control.
The unexpected anti-Democratic swing prompted a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter quizzing poll experts on a media conference call to IOP blurted out, “How did the Democrats and Obama screw this up?”
Because the numbers are close, however, Harvard said the kid vote is “up for grabs.”
Still, it is a huge shift from the last IOP midterm poll. In 2010, younger voters kept to their historic trend with 55 percent favoring Democrats, 43 percent Republicans. That is an eight-point change, very good news for the Republicans who had feared that the Obama generation would show up at the polls and in knee-jerk fashion simply pull the Democratic levers.
The shift away from Democrats is likely fed by the millennial dissatisfaction with Obama. The poll from IOP, located at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Mass., found their approval of Obama near the low-water mark, at just 43 percent. It dipped below, to 41 percent, just once.
Harvard University Institute of Politics: More damning poll numbers for Democrats from one of their core constituencies.
President Obama’s Job Approval Rating Decreases, Nears Low-Water mark.
Overall, President Obama’s job performance among America’s 18-29 year-olds has fallen from 47% (April 2014) to 43 percent (53%: disapprove), the second-lowest rating in the IOP polls since he took office (41%: November 2013). Among 18-29 year-olds saying they will “definitely be voting in November,” the president’s job approval rating is 42 percent, with 56% saying they disapprove.
Hispanic Support for President Obama is Weakening.
Support for the president among young Hispanics, who just two years ago supported Obama over Mitt Romney by 51-points (74% to 23%), appears to be weakening. The president’s job approval rating among Hispanics now sits at the lowest since the IOP began tracking the administration in 2009, with only 49 percent saying they approve (46% disapprove) – a significant drop from six months ago among the young Hispanic community (60%: April 2014) and a sharp slide from five years ago (81%: November 2009).
During an interview on FOX Business, Stuart Varney asked the following question of Sarah Palin, the answer was vintage Palin: : As you may have heard just a moment ago, I was saying that the hatred level directed against you is absolutely extraordinary and it’s a disgrace. But my question is, has it driven you out of politics, driven you away from standing for public office for good?
Sarah Palin would ask all those liberal haters … How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya?
“No, bless their hearts, those haters out there. They don’t understand that it invigorates me, it wants me to get out there and defend the innocent. It makes me want to work so hard for justice in this country,” she said. “So hey, the more they are pouring on, the more I’m gonna bug the crap out of them by being out there with the voice, with the message, hopefully running for office in the future too.”
Palin appeared to toy with a presidential run in 2011, even launching a bus tour that was raptly followed by national media. That speculation ultimately ended without a presidential bid, with Palin telling supporters “you don’t need a title to make a difference in this country.”
As reported at Special Report, FOX News obtained a State Department memo showing the Obama administration is planning on moving infected Ebola patients to the United States. UNBELIEVABLE. This joke of an administration would bring Ebola infected patients to a country that had no Ebola and had no real policies and procedures in how to deal with it? Exactly who is Barack Obama the president for and what oath of office did he actually take? How could anyone allow non-Americans into the United States to be treated? Haven’t they told us that the only way to protect America was to handle it over there?

OBAMA, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, NOT THE WORLD!!! THIS MAN IS LITERALLY TRYING TO RUIN AND BANKRUPT THIS COUNTRY. WHO KNEW OBAMACARE COVERED HEALTHCARE FOR NON-AMERICANS.

A memo obtained by Fox News indicates the Obama administration has been considering allowing non-American Ebola patients into the U.S. for treatment – though a State Department official on Tuesday denied any such plans.
The document was obtained by Fox News from a Capitol Hill source, who said it is a memo prepared by the State Department. The top of the document is marked “sensitive but unclassified – predesicional (sic).”
The “purpose” of the memo states: “Come to an agreed State Department position on the extent to which non-U.S. citizens will be admitted to the United States for treatment of Ebola Virus Disease.”
The document goes on to discuss – and advocate for — devising such a plan. The memo recommends that “State and DHS devise a system for expeditious parole of Ebola-infected non-citizens into the United States as long as they are otherwise eligible for medical evacuation from the Ebola affected countries and for entry into the United States.”

Former Florida Governor and noncommittal 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is calling our Barack Obama saying that his initial response to Ebola was “incompetent”. Jeb Bush made this comment as he was speaking in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University on Tuesday. One might first say, what response? Second, one would say, just his initial response Jeb, Obama continues to act incompetently when it comes to Ebola and the risk he is putting America and Americans at. Third, isn’t it par for the course, pardon the pun, for Barack Obama to act incompetently? That has been the theme to his presidency.
Why was there no policy or plan in place to deal with Ebola?
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is calling President Barack Obama’s initial response to Ebola “incompetent.”
“It looked very incompetent to begin with, and that fueled fears that may not be justified,” Bush said during a discussion at Vanderbilt University, according to The Tennessean. “And now you have states that are legitimately acting on their concerns, creating a lot more confusion than is necessary.”
Bush said the president was not “clear and concise” about his plans to combat Ebola, and described an incident in which anthrax was mailed in 2001 to a Florida-based tabloid, The National Equirer, during his time in office as an example of a better approach to addressing public fears.
“We gave people a sense of calm, what the plan was,” Bush said. “We talked in plainspoken English. We were totally engaged.”
EXIT COMMENT: Who finds it ironic that Jeb Bush is calling Obama “incompetent” when for years it was Democrats who called Jeb’s brother, President George W. Bush stupid?]]>
NASA is paying billions of dollars to Orbital Sciences and the SpaceX company to make station deliveries, and it’s counting on SpaceX and Boeing to start flying U.S. astronauts to the orbiting lab as early as 2017. NASA spokesman Rob Navias said there was nothing on the lost flight that was urgently needed by the six people living on the space station. Orbital Sciences’ Antares rocket blew up over the launch complex, just six seconds after the liftoff. The company said everyone at the site had been accounted for, and the damage appeared to be limited to the facilities. Flames could be seen shooting into the sky as the sun set. There was no hint of any trouble until the rocket exploded. This was the second launch attempt for the mission. Monday evening’s try was thwarted by a stray sailboat in the rocket’s danger zone. The restrictions are in case of just such an accident that occurred Tuesday.

Antares rocket explosion: The question of using decades-old Soviet engines.
The tale of the engine that propelled the Antares rocket, which exploded in a spectacular ball of flame in Virginia Tuesday night, begins four decades ago, thousands of miles away, in the land of communism and Sputnik. There, in the Soviet Union, rocket scientists conceived and built dozens of rocket engines meant to power Russian astronauts into the cosmos. But it didn’t work out that way.
Instead, all four launches of the mighty N1 Soviet rocket, which used an earlier iteration of the engine used in Thursday’s launch, failed between 1969 and 1972. And as the Soviet Union abandoned the idea of putting cosmonauts on the moon, those engines languished in Russia “without a purpose,” reported Space Lift Now.
The rocket was carrying various things, including spacewalk tools for the space station, flight equipment, food, books and computer resources for the crew.
Its total cargo was 4,883 pounds (2215 kilograms).
“It’s not as tragic as losing a life associated with it and so, we’re very happy to report that there were no injuries,” said Frank Culbertson, an executive vice president at Orbital Sciences Corp. ” That hardware, however, it’s very important and very high value to the company and to our customers.”
Stay away and do not touch, authorities warn.
As officials launch an investigation into the explosion, they are warning curious onlookers to stay away from the accident site and avoid any desire to collect souvenirs.
“The investigation will include evaluating the debris that we will find around the launch pad and everything associated with that,” Culbertson said.
“I do want to caution the public … this is an accident site and it’s a rocket and it had a lot of hazardous materials on board that people should not be looking for or wanting to collect souvenirs over. If you find anything that washes ashore in the local area or came down in your farm or in your yard, please make sure that you will call …. local authorities.”
