The personality cultists at Organizing for America have done it again.
To mark Women’s History Month OFA could have tweeted a picture of an American woman who’s contributed to the country’s greatness and its empowerment of women – Susan B. Anthony, maybe, or Sarah Palin.
Instead, the Obamabots chose their hero, of course. Because nothing says American womanhood quite like a picture of Barack Obama.
The personality cultists at Organizing for America have done it again.
The 408K Race in San Jose is already an inspiring event. The annual 8-kilometer run benefits the Pat Tillman Foundation, which funds scholarships for military veterans. This year, runners made it all the more memorable with a spontaneous tribute to a 95-year-old World War II veteran who had come out in his full uniform to cheer them.
The Republican National Committee released a statement over the weekend commemorating Women’s History Month that served as little more than a slap in the face to Sarah Palin.
Equal opportunity was the theme RNC chair Reince Priebus and co-chair Sharon Day drew upon as they highlighted Republican women seen as trailblazers, but omitted any reference to the party’s first female vice presidential nominee.
WASHINGTON — President Obama has authorized a targeted drone strike against Russian President Vladimir Putin following his country’s controversial troop movements into Ukraine’s Crimea, senior administration officials confirmed today.
Putin, 61, was added to the controversial “kill list” on Saturday shortly after speaking with the president in a 90-minute phone call. Following the call, the White House readout indicated that Obama spoke for approximately 30 minutes while Putin laughed continuously for the last 60.
A 28-year-old mother of four has filed a lawsuit against a background check website, saying the company used her attractive arrest booking photo for commercial and advertising purposes, without compensating her or even getting her permission.
Meagan Simmons of Zephyrhills filed the lawsuit in Hillsborough County Court against InstantCheckmate.com.
If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race.
But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns.
These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute nonsense.” In January of this year, the Globe claimed that Clinton secretly had a brain tumor.
It wasn’t a hard sell to get Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to speak at Donald Trump’s famously plush Mar-a-Lago Club mansion in the wealthiest county in Florida.
Palm Beach County Republican Party Vice Chairman Mike Barnett has been holding the spot for Cruz since last year, when conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham beat him to the punch and headlined the county party’s 2013 annual Lincoln Day fundraiser.

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) –
We’ve been hearing about the problems at the Sochi Olympic Games since before the opening ceremonies. One complaint was about the stray dogs everywhere.
But one American luger says forget about the dogs. She was worried about a wolf.
Kate Hansen says she opened her door to find a wolf roaming the halls of the dorm where Olympic athletes stay.
She shot video of the creature and uploaded it to YouTube.
“I’m pretty sure this is a wolf wandering my hall in Sochi,” the 21-year-old Olympian wrote.

As the “Greatest Show on Earth” returns to Brooklyn Thursday, circus folk fear a national clown shortage is on the horizon.
Membership at the country’s largest trade organizations for the jokesters has plunged over the past decade as declining interest, old age and higher standards among employers align against Krusty, Bozo and their crimson-nosed colleagues.
“What’s happening is attrition,” said Clowns of America International President Glen Kohlberger, who added that membership at the Florida-based organization has plummeted since 2006. “The older clowns are passing away.”
Neither the White House nor the Republican National Committee offered comment.
We don’t usually care much about what Chris Matthews thinks. He’s one of those jackasses who cries racism when he has nothing intelligent to say.
But we think it’s interesting that the man who once claimed to get a thrill up his leg when he heard Barack Obama speak is now saying that the President is the political loser of the year.
All of this comes on the heels of Barbara Walters expressing disappointment that Barack Obama is not, indeed, the Messiah.
Workers at a Volkswagen factory in Tennessee have voted against union representation in a devastating defeat for the United Auto Workers union’s effort to make inroads in the South.
“This is like an alternate universe where everything is turned upside down,” Cliff Hammond, a labor lawyer at in Detroit, told The Wall Street Journal, noting that companies usually fight union drives.
Organizing a Southern plant is so crucial to the union that UAW President Bob King told workers in a speech that the union has no long-term future without it.
“If the union can’t win [in Chattanooga], it can’t win anywhere,” Steve Silvia, a economics and trade professor at American University who has studied labor unions, told the Journal.
Frank Muller is a family man who runs one of the most progressive farms in California. A key proponent of sustainable large-scale farming in the US, he often says, ‘If you feed the soil, it will feed you.’
Frank, like many of the other 17 growers that supply Ragu with all its tomatoes, has a double-sided mission with his farm: efficiency and legacy.
He evolves the practices on his farm to be more efficient, using less water, less fertilizer, less fuel, so that he can increase profitability on his harvest year after year. But he also does it for another reason — his family — he is progressive in his farming practices, so that he might continually improve his stewardship of the land.
Do you really want to impress that special someone this Valentine’s Day? Forget flowers and candy. In 21st century America, nothing says “I love you” quite like a hot-pink 9-mm Glock.
Gun shops in the Lone Star State are seeing a surge in sales, which is being encouraged by local officers. The Police Department in Rosenberg, Texas, even posted this public-service announcement on its Facebook page:
Public Safety Announcement…
Men…remember Valentines Day is about one week away…why not the gift of safety?
Women…tag or share with the one who needs a little nudge in the right gift giving direction…
O.J. Simpson is reportedly refusing to eat and wants to die.
He wants his fortune, which is largely stored in his pension account, to go to daughters Sydney, 28, and Arnelle, 45, and sons Justin, 25, and Jason, 43 – and he’s worried they won’t get it.
Although Simpson was acquitted of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994, Goldman’s family were awarded $33 million in a wrongful death civil suit.
‘He can’t give the kids his money while he’s alive without the Goldman family laying claim to it,’ the source told the Enquirer. ‘The only way OJ figures he can leave his kids the millions is to kill himself.The jailed former football star, who is serving out a kidnapping, assault and robbery sentence in a Nevada prison, is reportedly so depressed that he wants to ‘just sit down in a corner and die’.
