**Posted by Phineas (Photo credit: NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images) Sure, all US embassies and consulates have portraits of the current president hanging in the offices; he is, after all, Head of State. But… Well… This is just a bit much: Large tapestry portraits of President Barack Obama were unveiled for guests at the U.S. Embassy in London […]

Just catching up on the news from the past couple of days after taking a bit of a break and I see that the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington provided some interesting news for commentary, as expected.

**Posted by Phineas Cory Booker is Newark, New Jersey’s, “rising star” mayor. He’s young, smart, personable, has a great online presence, and even rescues people from burning buildings. Now he’s running for the federal Senate seat that came open when Frank Lautenberg died and, this being New Jersey, he’s almost certain to win. At The Corner, Jim […]

 

Disturbing: Latest Newsweek cover features Obama w/ the caption: “Second Coming”

Wow, Newsweek sure isn’t doing themselves – nor their fellow cultish Obama worshippers – any favors by continuing to expose (collectively) their disturbing tendency to view our celebrity President as though he is God. Via Twitchy Team, which writes: First the angel Obama-el got his gay-lo from Newsweek, and now, in the creepy 2013 Inauguration issue, he’s […]

**Posted by Phineas I thought it was pretty creepy the first time, but now you can buy your very own Barack Obama flag from Barack Obama himself! And this can be yours for only $35! L’Etat c’est Obama? Jim Geraghty has sometimes called Obama “Our Munificent Sun-King.” Whoever knew Obama would agree? Most of us.  […]
