On a pleasant Saturday this summer, Eric Holder, his daughters, their boyfriends and two security officers boarded a government-owned Gulfstream and jetted off to New York for the Belmont Stakes Thoroughbred horse race.
Even for personal trips like this, the attorney general doesn’t fly commercial. For security reasons, Holder — like other top government officials — flies a government plane, though is required to reimburse taxpayers for airfare.
According to records obtained by The Daily Read more [...]
Guest host on MSNBC’s the Ed Show, Michael Eric Dyson, took time to tell his audience that President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder would be perfect for the Supreme Court.
I just threw up a little in my mouth.

Because it has appeared on U.S. currency for over 200 years, many Americans are surprised to learn that “In God We Trust” has only been the country’s official model since 1956.
Almost since that time, liberals have tried to ban it, citing separation of church and state, but court after court has upheld the motto as not imposing any undue burden on citizens–which anyone with any common sense can see–and each attempt merely seems to make the motto more popular with Americans.
Recently, Read more [...]
Regulars at the Vineyard Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard were gobsmacked when President Obama unexpectedly strolled onto a nearby green and they were immediately frisked. “There was no warning he was coming,” sniffed a guest.
“There was security on the way in, but no word as to why they were there.” The member added, “While eating, overlooking the golf course, guests had to stand up and be wanded.” One asked if he could finish his hot soup first, and an Obama security man cracked, ominously, Read more [...]
Coffee chain Starbucks has plenty of stores across the world, and plenty in Muslim nations. But one country where they proudly will not operate is in the nation of Israel. Starbucks closed all their stores over 11 years ago in the Holy Land, and today’s announcement effectively reveals they are boycotting Israel.
Wouldn’t a steaming-hot cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee taste so wonderfully good right about now?
The coffee chain has issued a statement announcing that neither Starbucks nor CEO Read more [...]
Even though Rep. Nancy Pelosi continues to tell America that Obamacare has reduced the cost of healthcare insurance policies, the facts say otherwise. In an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box last week, Aetna Chairman and CEO Mark Bertolini stated that Obamacare is not affordable to everyone:
“So we’ve increased access for, um, 8 million people in the exchanges and another 6 to 8 million people on Medicaid, depending on how you count, so we have a lot more insured, but it’s really not an affordable Read more [...]
A spin-off nonprofit with links to a top insurance company is pushing for Obamacare benefits to be extended to illegal immigrants.
The health-care exchanges and benefits like taxpayer subsidies for premiums are open to citizens and legal immigrants, but the California Endowment is trying to drum up support in California to formally extend Obamacare to the state’s undocumented immigrants as well. According the group’s website, it was created when Blue Cross of California split into the nonprofit Read more [...]
A Florida woman has become another victim of this country’s tyrannical policies under the guise of “preventing terrorism.”
Victoria Faren, a 78-year-old woman from Clearwater, Florida, was caught carrying $40,977 through customs when she tried to board a flight to the Philippines.
The shakedown happened at the Detroit Metropolitan airport on April 2. The court records were filed last Friday, and they describe the bizarre and disturbing incident:
When Faren and her daughter were first Read more [...]
The Department of Education released a fact sheet Monday about the availability of public school education for undocumented immigrant children — specifically the tens of thousands unaccompanied minors who have recently entered the U.S. illegally.
“We have begun to receive inquiries regarding educational services for a specific group of immigrant children who have been in the news – children from Central America who have recently crossed the U.S. - Mexico border,” the Department of Education Read more [...]
The New Jersey town of Willingboro has fond memories of the late President John F. Kennedy and wishes to keep them alive.
As My9NJ reports, “Residents there can take a stroll down John F. Kennedy Way, browse the stores at the John F. Kennedy shopping plaza and even get pampered at the John F. Kennedy Nail Salon and beauty supply store.”
But one thing many people are not happy with is the Township Council’s decision to change the name of the recreation center and former school, the “Kennedy Read more [...]
Would I be “acting white” if I asked why in God’s name are black people looting and destroying their own neighborhood in St. Louis? Would I be a sell-out if I asked why stealing all the tennis shoes from a sporting goods store would make a point for justice for a young man who was killed allegedly by a cop?
Would I be an “Uncle Tom” if I asked why burning a gas station, breaking into at least one convenience store, including a check-cashing store, a boutique, a small grocery store, a Read more [...]
President Obama must really be teed off.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid.
Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf.
Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as “don’t do stupid s---.” Said Clinton: “Great nations Read more [...]
