Well, it's been another quiet week in Lake Mobegone... [roundup post about Islamic doings]


  1. Moochie In China! Correct me if I’m wrong, bit didn’t they say that the first lady, aka the Moocher was going to be staying away from controversial issues, but instead she was going talk about education during her visit !! Well I guess I missed the part where she had decided instead to spread her BS about telling the Chinese about American values and traditions . She could have also told the Chinese why she refused to allow the press along on her trip, doesn’t that express American values and traditions? And doesn’t that directly send the wrong message not only to people in the United States but also to Chinese citizens, about the LACK of Freedom of the press! And I wonder if she’s talking about how things are going in the White House these days? Like having another High Cost taxpayer funded vacation in China in a $8,350-per-night suite, while Hubby takes a separate one in Florida, her school lunch program that bombed, t he White House pastry chef just quit, the Russians calling her husband (our president “week”) and here she is talking up the family values plan, and playing Ping Pong!
    And she talks about “For the first time she is Proud of her country!” She is and will forever be an embarrassment to our country. .

  3. Just read this in the “Daily Mail”
    Beijing hotel workers already “fed up” with Michelle Obama and her 70 person entourage in a very expensive suite inconveniencing 'pretty much everyone' – and the first lady's mother is 'barking Orders at the staff”
    Michelle Obama, her daughters and her mother Marian Robinson are staying in a sumptuous presidential suite at a Beijing hotel
    Mrs. Robinson Michelle’s Mother has been has been barking orders at the staff since the day she first arrived,' a hotel staffer said, adding that “we can't wait for this to be over”
    The Secret Service agents are monopolizing elevators and keeping high-paying guests from their rooms to occupy a block of space near the first lady
    Both front and back doors of the hotel are blocked off, with Chinese and U.S. security agents screening everyone who enters
    The hotel staff are simply fed up wit this entire thing.

    First of all, WHY are the American tax payers paying for Michelle’s Mother and or the Children? And why do these leeches have to vacation and spend our money in a Communist country, especially with Moosheels mother. What the heck entitles her to be living in the White House and traveling the American Tax payers dime? Why should we pay anything at all for this classless bunch. And why do these kids always have such a sullen look on their faces? Don’t they ever smile?

  4. Well, at least Michelle doesn't have to worry about China's white slavery racket.

  5. 27% Air Force One cost jump under Obama? What did he do? Hire his union buddies to run the plane? Is the increase due to new payoffs to union bosses? Over $4 million to fly him to vacation in Hawaii and back?

    I'd say give him the plane and free gas for life if he would just leave office now and take Joe Biden with him!

    6. Duck,
      The Daily Mail isn't a tabloid per se in the sense that you mean.

      See this:

      The Berliner format used by many prominent European newspapers is sized between the tabloid and the broadsheet. In a newspaper context, the term Berliner is generally used only to describe size, not to refer to other qualities of the publication.

      More information at the above link.

  7. How long will it be before some liberal asshat like Dave or Libface will say " yeah, but, but, but, George and Laura Bush did it too" Duh!

  8. I wonder why these barking mad dogs weren't foaming at their mouths over the many trips First Ladies Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan took. I wonder what's different about Michelle Obama? Well DUH, Is she kidding?

    As these vicious progressive animals rage about the cost of the Bush’s trips, it is important to remember that George and Laura Bush spent time in their own ranch or family compound, they didn't disrupt the entire countries cities or the rest of the world or break the bank with his or his wifes luxurious extravaganza's..

    The Bush’s spent —323 days on Vacation at the ranch in Crawford, Texas. Michelle Obama has already traveled 72 days abroad up to this point. Certainly not an insignificant total, and her first term tally of 55 days abroad is more than President Reagan spent abroad in his first term..

    The Obama's have no shame in taking advantage of you taxpayers. And now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? The old lady seems to be Moochelle’s accomplice in robbing this country blind!

  9. It seems as if Michelle Obama, her mother and two daughters have already outstayed their welcome with some of the staff at the $8,350 per night presidential suite in Beijing China.
    “We can’t wait for this to be over, to tell you the truth,” the staffer said. “We entertain many important people here, but this has been, I think, very different.”

    The front desk clerk said that Moochies mother Marian Robinson has been “barking” at the staff since she the minute that she arrived.

    Don’t these “people” understand that they represent our country. When she or any other member of the president’s family acts inappropriately, it makes our country look bad. They should be leading by example. Spending that kind of money alone at a time when we are in such economic strain is just wrong period!

    When Michelle took her famous trip to Spain with a large group of friends that could fill a Baseball park, her daughters and mother were listed on the flight manifesto as :"senior staff members". Last year, she pulled the girls out of school for a week to take a skiing trip, when it wasn't spring break. This year's spring break vacation was last week, and the girls and their many security guards went to the Bahamas. Now here they are again, out of school, traipsing off to China and milking the taxpayers' dime again. A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that a teacher somewhere had criticized Michelle, and he was put on suspension for the rest of the school year. Obama is telling people to give up t.v. and cellphones in order to pay for Obamacare premiums. It's absolutely astounding to me that people can't see how America is being taken advantage of by these "pretenders to the throne". I'm going to watch with interest Prince William's trip to Australia and compare that trip to the ones the Obamas take. Real royalty doesn't try to push agendas down people's throats and spy on them, threaten them, and manipulate their lives. The American people were doing just fine before they came along.

    But these Freeloaders don’t care, nor do they even know any better, they don’t even realize that these people have a different culture, you treat the Chinese people like they are your slaves….they really don’t care who the hell you are.
    What an embarrassment this bunch of losers are as representatives of America. Just think that they are fed up with them after only 2 days, how the hell you think we feel here in America!

    But us tax payers are picking up this up the tab on the Mooch, her daughters, and Aunt Ester? The 2010 trip to Spain cost taxpayers at least $487,000. A 2011 trip to southern Africa cost at least $424,142. The cost for this one will be astronomical!
    Don’t you just love how these left wing Socialists/Commies continue to spend our money.
    Oh Lord do I miss George and Laura Bush.

  10. The world is in turmoil but that won't keep the Obozo family from Vacationing. Never let the country's problems or a Worlds crises get in the way of good Vacation.
    After all, They Finally Got a Piece of the Pie!

    1. Truth Seeker,
      After all, They Finally Got a Piece of the Pie!

      Obvious, huh?

      But not to Obama adherents. They are incapable of seeing the truth about their "messiah."

  11. It's hard to believe people did not know that Osama bin Laden was in house in Pakistan, but...

    Right Truth

    1. Debbie,
      How much about OBL's location did at least some in the government of Pakistan know?

      Certainly, some people in the location of the "hideout" had to have known.

  12. I just added a link to the body of the blog post: "Well, it's been another quiet week in Lake Mobegone..."

  13. Has Obama made the world a more dangerous place
    Has Obama proved who the world leader is and who is the pansy ? Obama love to impose Sanctions, that never work! Obama loves all the tough talk and rhetoric but he is really upset with Vladimir Putin for running Russia the way Obama would like to run the United States: as a dictator with a spine. Obama is the loser and should be ashamed of himself for imposing sanctions against Russia for liberating Crimea.
    Comparing Obama and Putin you get Pee Wee Herman on a bike Obama versus a strong, tough leader on a horse Putin. What happened to this president saying he was going to restore respect for the United States in the International community? Instead we see another example of how the Obama apology tour failed to impress world leaders and was perceived as a sign of weakness and lack of leadership. The ineptness of this president has caused the stature of the United States to slip further into the outhouse. If Obama really wanted to get Putin’s attention he would threaten to leave Joe Biden and John Kerry in Moscow and sign Putin up for Obamacare. How pathetic and impotent the US looks.
    The US Missile defense system Shields should be put back as an immediate Priority for the US. They should have never been dismantled!
    For all the religious quoting of this administration and its talking heads they missed the Golden rule which states “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” This is sound advice to live by. Instead they want to treat others their way and remain exempt from retribution. Watching the Obama administration respond to receiving the same treatment that they have been giving the American people is entertaining. The administration was upset with Putin forcing his will on the country of Ukraine, calling it “,,,unfair and not listening to the people.” That’s rich. The very issues they are complaining about were just fine with them until the shoe was on the other foot. Bullying, intimidation, spying, reckless spending, forcing their will on people instead of listening to them; these are all actions the administration has complained about recently but had no problem inflicting on the American people. Looking at all the hypocrites commenting on these liberial blogs is breaking my heart. What good is it sending the First lady to China to promote Free Speech when these people here are slowly but surely taking our freedoms away from us right here in our own Homeland? Lets solve the illegal immigrant problem here in the US and let China do what’s best for them.
    I feel sorry for the ignorance of our counties leaders I feel sorry for the people that can't understand what the rest of the world means us Americans, we have the power and the technology to help so many people around the world so in a way our power technology is our responsibility, but we never seem to use it. If we ignore what's going on in the world it will only get worse for us as well. It is our responsibility to uphold what we have learned from World War 2, and never let that happen again. What bothers me the most is how easily the American people are swayed. Just like the sheep led by their leader.
    The only time they seem to take issue with bullying is when someone is doing it to them. As for these bleeding heart libs like Dave, Ducky etc, maybe you can be honest and negatively comment on Obama SOME day...but I doubt it.. The poor things just can't admit their Dear wonderboy has screwed up

  14. The First Wookie is a hypocrite..Get this one... . Our own Press is banned and the first lady preaches to China about free speech! Now figure that one out! (If you can). I would call it blatant hypocrisy in the first degree. She needs to shut up and stop making a fool out of herself.

  15. After reading through these blogs, frankly, it puzzles me, I really don't get it. I have spent a lot of time trying to understand the Liberal mind. I really want to understand where they're coming from., but for the life of me I just can’t seem to understand where these people like Dave Miller, Ducky, Liberialmann, Shaw, and the likes of them, what are they thinking? And frankly, they disgust me. their hatred of America nauseates me. their false reverse racism offends me. Thy just revolt me.
    And when they use Jesus/Christianity to back themselves up, it frightens me like a zombie movie. There just HAS to be a rational explanation for their way of thinking, but I just can’t figure it out.

  16. The Chinese are already FED-UP with Michelle Obama and her Family after only one day!!
    The Moochie and her mother are low class and refuse to follow examples set forth by other first families. The First Wookie has learned nothing but how to do spend money on herself and family with taxpayer dollars. At least Jimmy Carter's mother was civil and well liked. She had manners and a pleasant disposition.
    Yes, the hotel workers are fed up with the Obamas, but at least they get rid of them after a few days. The American people will be stuck with dealing with these lowlifes for years to come.

  17. OK, I didn't see this on the menu but is anyone else completely fed-up with the endless, ad nauseam coverage of Flight #370? I wish that, at least, the media would wait until there's actually something to say-PLEEEZZZZE!

  18. JonBerg you are the master of satire. This forum would certainly be lacking without you

    I think I'll go watch the news, so I can see them spend a few hours saying "We still don't know anything." They'll even bring on a couple experts to tell us how we still don't know anything.

    Maybe we should simply ignore the problem, "at this point, what difference does it make"

  19. Since BO has occupied the White House-We have seen:

    2,400 Dead civilians As Obama’s Drone Campaign Marks 5 Years

    Egypt go through 2 revolutions, the first revolt: “The Arab Spring” was brought on by Samantha Power, Hillary Clinton, Obama, Susan Rice and John McCain. The first phony revolution brought the Islamic radical, Morsi into power who lead many Coptic Christians to slaughter. Americans should be ashamed by this but only a few are. Egypt’s 2nd true revolt (brought on by US backed coup/revolt) was to oust their country of these Islamic radicals and Morsi: Obama’s militant, Islamic puppet.

  20. Looks like the world is still going to hell in the proverbial basket. Back at it tomorrow at bunkerville after my hiatus. Thanks for carrying the load!
