DNC Makes Plans For Islamic Prayer

The Democratic National Convention will be supporting an Islamic Jumah prayer, a prayer said by Muslims on Fridays. The event is “intended to address the concerns and issues that are challenging to the American Muslim citizens in the 21st century.”

The plan to proceed with the event comes as a shock to some, given that the Democratic Party did not respond to a Catholic bishop’s request to pray at the DNC.

As many as 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend as a way to show their concerns in regard to Muslim rights in the United States. Topics of interest include the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act.

“Thousands of Muslims are going to perform the Friday ritual prayer,” said Jibril Hough, a local Muslim activist. “We hope our people will leave feeling rewarded about who they are and what their issues are and have a candidate checklist.”

But not all Muslims are supporting the event. Zuhdi Jasser, the president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, has voiced concern:

It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims.  Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

If that is who the DNC is consorting with then all Americans, Democrats should be concerned. There are many patriotic Muslims who are part of both parties, and when radical ideologues like this do a demonstration of “solidarity” in the name of our faith and choose an imam like Siraj Wahhaj who I saw with my own eyes in 1995 seditiously say it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quran- then we need to speak up!

Update 8-31: According to a press release issued Tuesday, Timothy Cardinal Dolan will be leading a closing prayer at the DNC.

‘2016: Obama’s America’ Receives Negative Review From AP

The anti-Barack Obama film “2016: Obama’s America” has been a hit at the box office. It raked in more than $6.2 million, made the top 10 and appeared in 1,091 theaters. But not everyone appreciates the documentary. The Associate Press recently gave the movie a negative review.

The movie is based on the book The Roots of Obama’s Rage, written by Dinesh D’Souza. In “2016: Obama’s America,” D’Souza travels to Kenya and attempts to uncover the roots of the President’s political ideology.

An AP article called D’Souza’s efforts “entirely subjective and a logical stretch at best,” and said that, in regard to certain matters, there is “no evidence.” Furthermore, writer Beth Fouhy believes that D’Souza’s claims “don’t hold water.”

Fouhy writes: “It’s difficult to see how Obama’s political leanings could have been so directly shaped by his father.”

Joel Gilbert has tried to explain the conundrum in his film, “Dreams from My Real Father.”

More Than Half Of Obama’s Twitter Followers Don’t Exist

President Barack Obama has about 19 million people following him on Twitter. But reports suggest that as many as 70 percent of them may not even exist.

In a time when legitimacy is established by the number of one’s Twitter followers, it has become commonplace to purchase followers, reports The New York Times.

“And it’s not just ego-driven blogger types,” wrote Austin Considine. “Celebrities, politicians, start-ups, aspiring rock stars, reality show hopefuls — anyone who might benefit from having a larger social media footprint — are known to have bought large blocks of Twitter followers.”

At buytwitterfollow.com, you can purchase Twitter followers by the thousands. In many cases, the accounts are inactive or created by spammers.

The practice has become so common that it is now easy to determine how many fake followers a person has.

Mitt Romney has also been accused of having fake followers. In July, 100,000 new people began following Romney over the course of one weekend.

Both campaigns have denied buying fake followers.

Another Anti-Obama Movie Set To Be Released

Following the success of “2016: Obama’s America,” another anti-Barack Obama film will soon be released. Produced by Citizens United, “The Hope And the Change” documents the worsening situation of 40 Americans who voted for Obama in 2008.

The film will premiere at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

David Bossie, the group’s president, said Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 911” served as an inspiration.

Michael Moore made a film attacking George Bush, and he didn’t let the facts get in the way of a good storyline,” said Bossie. “What we did was want to be able to do the same thing. That’s what the Citizens United case emanated from. .. And that’s why in 2008 I went to the United States Supreme Court to fight for my right, and it took me many years.  And in 2010 we finally won our victory.”

In September, “The Hope And the Change,” will be in select theaters across the United States, and it might air on a cable channel regularly until Election Day.

“This is the first election cycle that we are now legally able to make a political documentary and show it and its ads on television,” Bossie said. “And we’re really excited about that.”

Obama Campaign Draws Support From Shady Characters

If the Democratic Party endorses the views of its supporters, then Vice President Joe Biden must think rape is a laughing matter and President Barack Obama must think it’s OK to shoot those who interfere with a back-alley drug deal. The Nation’s top leaders recently made appearances with Senator Al Franken and NBA star Carmello Anthony.

Last week, Biden shared the stage with Franken, a former “Saturday Night Live” writer who joked about raping a reporter.

“I give pills to Lesley Stahl. Then, when Lesley’s passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her,” joked Franken, as reported by New York magazine in 1995. “When she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.”

Anthony appeared at the “Obama Classic,” a fundraising event attended by some of the biggest names in basketball. In 2004, Anthony was seen in a DVD titled “Stop Snitchin” alongside drug dealers who threatened that anyone who interfered with their enterprise would “get a hole in his head.”

Chicago Values: 13 Shot In 30 Minutes

On July 25, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel said, “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values.” On Aug. 12, President Barack Obama said, “Chicago is an example of what makes this country great.” On Aug. 24, 13 people were shot in the Windy City over the course of 30 minutes.

In total, 19 people were shot from late Thursday through early Friday morning.

Four men were shot in the Little Village neighborhood about 5:20 p.m.

About 9:30 p.m., eight were shot at 79th Street and Essex Avenue.

Two were shot on East 37th Street at about 9:25 p.m. About the same time, there was a drive-by shooting on West 39th Place.

At about 9:40 p.m., one man was shot on South Jeffrey Boulevard.

Early Friday, a teen was shot on South Vincennes Avenue.

At 1:30 a.m., another teen was shot on West Grenshaw Street.

Since 2001, more than 2,000 troops have been killed in Afghanistan. In the same amount of time, more than 5,000 people in Chicago have died from a gunshot wound.

California Moms Sue School District Over Teaching On Abstinence

Two mothers in California are suing the Clovis United School District over an abstinence-only sex education program. They say the students need information on condoms and sexually transmitted diseases.

The California District of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Gay-Straight Alliance Network have joined the moms in the suit. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is representing those involved in the case.

In 2003, a law was passed in California requiring that public schools thoroughly discuss sexual behavior in a medically accurate way.

According to the lawsuit, the school district is teaching that students should wait until marriage before engaging in sexual activity. In light of the 2003 law, this is unacceptable in the eyes of the suing mothers, Aubree Smith and Mica Ghimenti.

“Our kids need complete, accurate information to help them protect themselves against STDs and unintended pregnancy,” said Smith.

“Our children need to know more about sex education than abstinence-only,” Ghimenti added.

The school district emailed this statement to NBC News:

It appears from an initial review that the concern raised in this lawsuit stems from a question of differing interpretations of the depth and breadth of a school district’s obligation to cover detailed sexual content in its family life-sex education materials. …We will continue our review of the suit in order to better understand the concerns raised by the plaintiffs, but Clovis Unified has fully complied with both the California Education Code and the State’s content standards.

Obama Probably Needed A Good Teacher

At a recent campaign stop in Nevada, a heckler interrupted President Barack Obama. The President responded: “That young man probably needed a good teacher.” But the response is quite ironic given Obama’s slipups.

The most recent slipup is his misspelling of “Ohio.” In a photo reminiscent of a drunken tailgate party, Obama and three supporters spelled the Buckeye State “O-I-H-O.”

OIHO

 

They later corrected the flub.

OHIO

 

It’s not the first time the Commander in Chief has lost command of the English language.

While appearing on ESPN to discuss his picks for the NCAA basketball tournament, Obama misspelled “Syracuse.”

 

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqPf1t156Gc&w=420&h=315]

 

Allegedly, the President sent a letter to a citizen and thanked him for his “advise,” instead of “advice.”

The White House sent out invitations to an event to be held at “Congregation Keneseth Isreal” (should be “Israel”) and in 2011 misspelled “Libya.”

The first lady had her own fumble on Wednesday, telling voters to get out and vote on Nov. 2. The election is Nov. 6.

Who Killed Tony Scott?

On Sunday afternoon, filmmaker Tony Scott parked his car, climbed a fence and jumped to his death because he had brain cancer. At least that’s the version of the story reported by ABC News — the same media outlet that allegedly covered up George Zimmerman’s head wounds and claimed Aurora, Colo., shooting suspect James Holmes was a member of the Tea Party.

ABC News claimed that the report of Scott’s brain cancer came from “a source close to him.” But the story took the family by surprise. It turns out those closest to Scott knew nothing about his having brain cancer. ABC News then put out another story with the headline “Tony Scott Brain Cancer Report Appears in Doubt.”

Apart from the fabricated detail of brain cancer, it’s questionable that a 68-year-old would be able to calmly climb an 18-foot fence, which is what reports claim Scott did before his 185-foot free fall.

The death of the movie man seems too much like something out of a movie: A successful and healthy filmmaker gets news of a fatal illness, leaves a suicide note and leaps to his death before his latest project is released. It sounds like an orchestrated tale. Perhaps it is.

Did Scott know something that led to his untimely peril? Maybe a self-inflicted exit was better than whatever the alternative may have been. That is, if he jumped at all. A corpse dumped in a body of water isn’t that uncommon.

Scott and his brother Ridley Scott have a miniseries on A&E, “Coma,” that will air on Labor Day. The show is about a conspiracy at a medical facility. It exposes a hospital that intentionally performs botched surgeries on patients. “Coma” is supposedly based on the novel of the same title by Robin Cook. But we all know that many “fictional” books and movies are based on real events. Interestingly, the miniseries contains allusions to Atlanta, the home of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Could it be that “Coma” is based on a true story that someone wants to keep hidden?

Besides “Coma,” a Tony Scott documentary is set to air next year on the National Geographic Channel, “Killing Lincoln.” Supposedly, the film lends credence to conspiracy theories surrounding the death of the former President.

Maybe the pressure on Scott wasn’t because of a project already set to air, but something in the files. At the time of Scott’s alleged suicide, he was working on a few other projects — the most notable of which being the sequel to “Top Gun,” the 1986 blockbuster. The sequel was going to be based on the use of drones in modern combat. Scott spent the last few days of his life at a naval air station in Fallon, Nev., doing research for the film. In 2009, there were reports of UFOs at the station. Did Scott discover something while at Fallon?

If “Coma,” “Killing Lincoln” or “Top Gun 2” isn’t to blame for Scott’s death, perhaps the answer can be found somewhere behind the making of “Obama’s America 2016,” a recently released film that seeks to explain Obama’s past and his plans for the future. Scott has a connection to the movie through Gerald R. Molen, the producer of the film. Molen, Scott and Tom Cruise have a cinematic triangle of sorts. Molen, Scott and Cruise worked together on the 1990 film “Days of Thunder.” Molen worked with Cruise on the set of “Rain Man” and “Minority Report.” Scott and Cruise worked alongside each other in “Top Gun” and were spending time together shortly before Scott’s death.

Even though I can’t say for sure what took place on Sunday, I’m fairly certain of what will happen in coming weeks. First, an autopsy will be released and the alleged suicide will be blamed on drug use or an unknown medical problem (the family already refuted the claim that he had “inoperable brain cancer,” so his behavior will be described in other terms). Second, all of the videos that were supposedly taken of Scott’s leap will never be viewed (because they don’t exist). Third, more witnesses will come forward to say they saw Scott jump off the bridge (in an attempt to make the story more credible).

Perhaps we will never know the truth, but ABC News’ mishandling of the story serves to teach a valuable lesson. Jumping to the conclusion that the media are telling you the truth is a deadly mistake.

Updated to reflect correction in first paragraph.

Palin For President

Sarah Palin won’t be on the ballot in November, but that isn’t stopping the Alaskan’s advocates from supporting her for President. A group called The Earthquake Movement wants Palin in the White House.

The pro-Palin group does not support Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and it is upset that Palin was not given a speaking slot at the upcoming Republican convention.

“We are finding a lot of unhappy Republican voters,” the group said in a statement. “They feel like the RNC is not listening to them, and based on voter turnout in the primaries and what we are hearing from conservative Americans, they want her to emerge from the convention as the nominee.”

The Earthquake Movement has placed billboards in Wisconsin and attempted to contact delegates from all over the country.

But some Republicans, especially those in Wisconsin, a State that largely supports Paul Ryan, think The Earthquake Movement is wasting its time.

“I think the signs they’ve put up in the Dells clearly show they don’t understand the process,” said Sauk County Republican Party Chairman Tim McCumber. “We had a primary here. Wisconsin voters, in an open primary, came in and selected our candidate. Our delegates will go down, under our rules, and vote for that candidate.”

Obama Says He Will ‘Just Keep On Following’ Jesus

Amid criticism from even his liberal friends, President Barack Obama says he takes comfort in knowing that he is loved. “First and foremost, my Christian faith gives me a perspective and security that I don’t think I would have otherwise: that I am loved,” the President said in a recent interview with Washington National Cathedral magazine.

Obama said his faith has influenced his ideas about healthcare, a similar statement to that which he made about his stance on same-sex marriage.

“Faith tells us that there is something about this world that ties our interest to the welfare of a child who can’t get the health care they need, or a parent who can’t find work after the plant shut down, or a family going hungry,” Obama said.

The President also said that those who doubt he is a Christian should just look at his life.

“I have a job to do as president, and that does not involve convincing folks that my faith in Jesus is legitimate and real. I do my best to live out my faith, and to stay in the Word, and to make my life look more like His,” he said.

“What I can do is just keep on following Him, and serve others—trying to make folks’ lives a little better using this humbling position that I hold.”

City Tells Woman She Cannot Hand Out Water On Hot Day

The City of Phoenix could face a lawsuit after a city worker told a woman she could not hand out free water. Lawyers say that, under the 1st and 14th amendments, Dana Crow-Smith should have been able to give water to thirsty citizens.

Crow-Smith was handing out free water last month in Phoenix when she was told she was violating city code and would need a permit in order to continue. She was threatened with a citation.

“It was really hot and yeah we wanted to show God’s love and a small act of kindness is a great way to do that without shoving it down someone’s throat,” Crow-Smith said.

The Rutherford Institute is representing Crow-Smith, believing that the city violated “Crow-Smith’s First Amendment right to freely exercise her religion, her Fourteenth Amendment due process rights, as well as Arizona’s Free Exercise of Religion Act.”

The Rutherford Institute wants the city apologize to Crow-Smith and state that she is allowed to distribute water in the future. If the city does not comply, The Rutherford Institute says that a lawsuit will ensue.

“But I don’t think it’s even about religious beliefs. I think anybody should be able to giveaway water on the sidewalk to anybody. It’s hot and it’s a nice thing to do,” Crow-Smith said.

John W. Whitehead, the president of The Rutherford Institute agreed: “It is a sad day when local government officials prohibit Americans from such charitable acts as giving water to the thirsty in their city.”

Muslim Brotherhood Crucifies Opponents

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has begun crucifying those who oppose President Mohammed Morsi. Some of the victims have been Egyptian Christians.

Crucifixions were reported by Arab News, Al Khabar News, Dostor Watany and Egypt Now.

“It’s anyone who is resisting the new government,” said Raymond Ibrahim of the Middle East Forum and the Investigative Project on Terrorism. “In this particular case, the people attacked and crucified were secular protesters upset because of Morsi’s hostile campaign against the media, especially of Tawfik Okasha, who was constantly exposing him on his station, until Morsi shut him down.”

Center for Security Police Senior Fellow Clare Lopez points to the Quran as the driving force behind the crucifixions.

“Crucifixion is a hadd punishment, stipulated in the Quran, Sura 5:33, and therefore an obligatory part of Shariah,” Lopez said. “It’s been a traditional punishment within Islam since the beginning, even though it’s not exclusively Islamic. The Romans used it too.

“So, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood haven’t the option to not include crucifixion within their legal code. It’s obligatory to comply with Shariah. And yes, it’s for shock value also to be sure.”

Analysts say that the situation will only worsen with time.

“These are Islamic hardliners who do everything by the Quran,” pointed out Pamela Gellar, an analyst of the Mideast and Islam.

“The Quran says, ‘Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land,” Gellar said.

News reports confirm that opponents of Morsi have been crucified naked on trees.

High School Choirs Not Allowed To Perform Because Of Too Many White Students

Two high school choirs in Georgia will miss out on an opportunity to perform at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra because it was decided that they are not racially diverse enough. The choruses of Walton High School and Lassiter High School will have to sit on the sidelines.

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra President Stanley Romanstein offered an explanation: “We want the stages of the Atlanta Symphony, whether here, Verizon (Wireless Amphitheatre), or Chastain Park to reflect the diversity of Atlanta.”

Romanstein called opposing viewpoints “an interesting misunderstanding.”

“There are at least 12 very talented high school choirs in Atlanta,” he said. “We gave Lassiter and Walton choirs an opportunity to perform for four consecutive years, and they were marvelous. We think it’s time to give other Atlanta high school choirs, who are very skilled and deserving, their chance to perform with the ASO as well.”

Give Up Your Gun, Get Free Shoes

A program that has its roots in Orlando, Fla., provides incentives for residents who are willing to turn in their firearms. Those who give up their guns receive a gift card, free gas or a pair of kicks (shoes), depending on their location.

This year marked the 14th year of Kicks 4 Guns. The initiative was started by Real Radio 104.1 in Orlando.

Twelve law enforcement agencies participated in this year’s event: Cocoa Police Department, Daytona Beach Police Department, Kissimmee Police Department, Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Orlando Police Department, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, Ocoee Police Department, Palm Bay Police Department, Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and Winter Park Police Department.

Kicks 4 Guns is intended to “remove unwanted guns from homes,” reported ClickOrlando.com.

Law enforcement agencies hoped the event would bring in 2,500 guns; 1,333 were turned in, reported the Orlando Sentinel. During last year’s Kicks 4 Guns, central Florida law enforcement agencies took in more than 2,200 weapons.

MSNBC Co-Host Accuses Romney Of ‘Niggerization’

The racial rhetoric continues in the 2012 campaign. First, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of mostly black voters that Republicans are “going to put ya’ll back in chains.” Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney responded by telling President Barack Obama to take his “campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” On Thursday, an MSNBC co-host got in on the action.

The co-host of “The Cycle,” known as Touré, accused Romney of “niggerization.” Romney’s message to Obama “really bothered” Touré.

“You notice he said ‘anger’ twice,” Touré pointed out. “He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization’ — ‘he’s not like us.’”

Touré said Romney is trying to convince people that Obama is like the “scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”

The Romney campaign has contacted NBC about the comment.

3 Reasons Why America Will Crumble

A recent trip to the East Coast reminded me of a few things. Namely, America is a beautiful land of diverse people. And it won’t be long before it crumbles into oblivion.

Every great nation has its season. At some point, it ceases to be a world power and becomes nothing more than a page in a history book. When was the last time you read about what the Roman or Babylonian army is up to? That’s my point exactly. One of these days, the United States will be nothing more than a series of articles filed away under the letter “U” in the encyclopedia. I don’t like it or want it to be such, but it’s the truth. And it might be sooner than later.

America will crumble because attempts to revolt will be stifled. I had my own run-in with the Transportation Security Administration while traveling. In case you were not aware, baby formula could be explosive. I was stopped as I tried to take the powdered substance through security. I saw a comment box conveniently located near my location, so I thought that I would leave a comment. But I couldn’t. Although they had supplied comment cards, all pens and pencils had been conveniently removed from the table. As the attack on our privacy becomes more intense, expect government to do all it can to silence protestors.

America will crumble because the surrounding nations are more educated and intelligent. This fact was illustrated at Subway, the only place where you can have bologna with mayonnaise on white bread and feel like you have eaten something healthy. While listening to individuals of different nationalities place their orders, it became clear that we the people are quite foolish — particularly the American woman who ordered “ham and cheese with no cheese.” Every Subway connoisseur knows that ham and cheese is not even an item on the menu. In not too many years, I suspect Americans will be busy ordering ham and cheese with no cheese while surrounding nations speed past us in every area imaginable.

America will crumble because more and more people feel entitled. While waiting on a flight, I got to witness firsthand the train wreck that is American parenting. One of the children, probably 8- or 9-years-old, began crying when she did not get her way. Quickly, Dad sped to the scene, consoling the poor, deprived child. This happened shortly before one of the other children played on one of Southwest’s computers. The proud parents seemed delighted that the youngster had such an interest in technology. Many kids who are never spanked and never told, “No,” end up being parasites. The hardworking taxpayers who still have some sense of self-worth and dignity end up being the host. While we raise a generation that will be dependent on the state and crushed by the expectations of life, those nations that are instilling work ethic will be sure to take advantage of our dependency.

I don’t know when it will happen, but it will. If the ship does not change course, we will fall and crumble into pieces. The process is a slow one, and we are in the middle of it. When change comes gradually, the average onlooker does not realize that anything has even changed. One day, capitalism, confidentiality and Christian values will be the subjects of nostalgic reflection.

Woman Faces Fine For Feeding The Hungry

A woman in Philadelphia is facing a fine for feeding hungry children. Angela Prattis was threatened with a $600 fine for every day she handed out free food.

The local government has tried to get citizens to quit feeding the hungry, hoping that doing so will force the poor into shelters.

Prattis distributes meals every day from the gazebo in her yard. She believes the government has more important things to worry about.

“You have houses here, the roofs are falling in, and they could be focused on a lot of more serious issues than me feeding children,” Prattis said.

“How is feeding kids a bad thing?” she asked. “I’m doing this from my heart because I love children. And these kids are hungry. Last Friday, I had 20 children walk to my house in the pouring rain for lunch, and at 2 p.m., they came back for a snack. Tell me this program is not needed.”

But Township Council Chairman Stanley Kester says that rules have to be followed.

“She wants us to bypass or exonerate her from the zoning hearing. She just doesn’t want to pay to do things the right way. We can’t just start exempting everyone from our laws. If you do one, you’ve got to do everybody,” Kester said.

Prattis will have to pay $1,000 to continue her program.

Paul Ryan’s Clothes Become Focus Of Media

Many people believe Paul Ryan is the perfect fit for Vice President. But some in the media believe he needs to add something to his repertoire before he can be considered seriously: better fitting clothes.

Cathy Horyn of The New York Times wrote: “He was swimming in his coat, like Tom Hanks in ‘Big’ when he becomes a kid again. …Mr. Ryan should get a skilled tailor, or challenge campaign aides to pay closer attention to tangible details rather than abstractions like whether or not the candidates appeal to nonrich, nonwhite voters.”

Katherine Boyle, writing for The Washington Post, observed: “Ryan (Wis.) appeared rumpled, slightly sloppy for a vice-presidential candidate. As if he’d flown in hours before and mistakenly picked up someone else’s suitcase. His pants sagged at his ankles. His starched, white shirt bunched at his stomach. His dark jacket drooped, better suited for a man of the cloth than a man on a presidential ticket.”

Some are even wondering if Ryan’s non-tailored suits are a political move. “In Ryan’s case, styling himself as a baggy-suited newcomer aligned with the party’s conservatives may be a wise strategy for the campaign,” Boyle wrote.

BuzzFeed staff writer Amy Odell pointed out: “Wherever he goes, there they are those shirts, folding over the waistbands of his baggy pants while he gestures at a sea of Romney posters.”

Alexandra Le Tellier also got in on the action, writing in the Los Angeles Times: “And, though we may not give as much thought about what a man wears, it’s not totally off our radar either. Just ask Rep. Paul Ryan, whose baggy suits not only make him look like a little kid drowning in his dad’s clothes but have also been the topic of recent national conversation.”

In 2008, Sarah Palin came under scrutiny for spending too much on clothing. It was reported that the Republican National Committee spent $150,000 to pretty up Palin. Ann Romney also came under fire for wearing a $1,000 shirt earlier this year.

‘The Price Is Right’ Seeking Male Model

“The Price is Right” will no longer discriminate against male models. The popular game show will soon be selecting a male model to join the women in displaying prizes.

Since the show’s creation in 1956, models have been used to advertise products and prizes. From 1972 to 2007, the models were referred to as “Barker’s Beauties” — a reference to the show’s then-host, Bob Barker.

There will be an open casting call in Los Angeles on Aug. 30 for male models. The models will be judged on their verbal skills, posing and ability to showcase products.

The show will choose 25 contestants. From those chosen, six will go on as finalists. The public will then vote online on Oct. 4 to determine who will be the first male model for “The Price is Right.”

The show has used more than 25 models since its inception. Barker was accused of sexual harassment by some of the models, but all the lawsuits were settled out of court.

Special Ops Group To Obama: You Did Not Kill Osama Bin Laden

A group of former U.S. intelligence and special operation forces operatives is shooting down the notion that President Barack Obama killed Osama bin Laden.

The Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc. launched a campaign criticizing the President for taking credit for bin Laden’s death. The OPSEC group also believes the present Administration has leaked highly confidential information that could put Americans’ lives in jeopardy.

The OPSEC group claims it is not affiliated with any political party. The group’s president is former Navy Seal Scott Taylor. Taylor ran for Congress in Virginia in 2010 as a Republican.

Obama has touted the killing of bin Laden as one of the highlights of his Presidency, but the OPSEC group wants to make sure that his celebration is not without criticism.

The first video by the OPSEC group was released Wednesday, stating: “There is a cost for our leaders grabbing for glory.”

Taylor said: “I believe that a 10-year-old would be able to understand that if you disclose how we got there, how we took down the building, what we did, how many people were there, that it’s going to hinder future operations.”
