Well, it has been a whole two months since her last vacation...
With scandal swirling about the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama may be considering an extended exit from Washington this summer, fleeing for weeks to the Obamas' traditional summer haven, Martha's Vineyard.
According to the Boston Globe, "Michelle Obama and the children may be on the island for an extended period." But the president would hardly be suffering by comparison. He may come up on weekends and then stay for two weeks at the end of the summer, the Globe reports. (Source)

" the Obamas' traditional summer haven"
1) They're from Chicago. Was this their "traditional summer haven" before Obama made it into national politics and really started raking in the bribes?
2) We get to pay for it! That's right, folks! While you're choosing between junior's college education and a vacation, you'll have the privilege of paying for the Obama's summer-long stay at a luxury resort!
I have to wonder how much the people living on the vineyard are going to like that. If the Obamas are staying basically the summer then a lot of places are going to be booked for the goverment minders and others following them. That could either be good for shopkeepers if they spend like democrats in washington DC or bad if they decide to be cheap and drive everyone else out.
Regardless, the taxpayers are going to be paying for this. At least most of the money being spent is going to be in the US and not in Europe.
An FBI agent shot and killed a man overnight in Orlando who had ties to one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, NBC News has confirmed.
According to NBC News, a special agent was interviewing the suspect regarding his connections to bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and other extremists. The suspect, who was not immediately identified by officials, was originally cooperative, but he was shot after attacking the agent.
Update: Todashev had confessed to being involved in a triple murder in Boston involving one of Tamerlan Tsarnaev's former best friend.
Investigators said Todashev confessed to the FBI that he played a role in a triple murder in 2011 in which three men were murdered in an apartment in Waltham, Mass. Their throats had been cut, and their bodies were covered with marijuana, authorities said. No suspects had been arrested in that case, but officials were investigating whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who knew at least one of the victims, was involved.
I submit the motive for the murder was because the murdered men were supplying weed to Johar Tsarnaev.
Any drug use or dealing is considered Haram by Islamist radicals, unless you know, the profits go to benefit the Jihad. That is part of the schism betweemn the Somalis and al-Shabaab. Where Shabaab is very interested in banning the use of khat.

It seems that every time you shoot a muslim these days, you foil a plot.
Why do I get the bad feeling Todashev KNEW SOME STUFF?!? Cause matter of fact, I'll bet he did. Dead men tell no tales. And I pray the cute little dancing girl makes it to a civilized place before her male relatives behead her for dancing practically nekkid.
Soldiers wounded in the Fort Hood shooting spree in November 2009 have a new problem on their hands: getting the shooting's classification changed from "workplace violence" to "combat related."
As reported by Dallas-Fort Worth's NBC 5 Investigates, the injured soldiers are struggling to pay their bills. Because the government doesn't classify the shooting as an act of combat or terror, those injured don't receive additional pay or Purple Hearts.
Receiving the "pay and medical benefits earned by those wounded in combat" would be a big help to these soldiers and their families, reports NBC 5.
Adding to the soldiers' concerns: Major Nidal Hasan, the man charged in the shootings, continues to be paid his salary and has earned more than $278,000 since the shooting, which resulted in 13 deaths and 32 injuries.
Bejebus effing christmas!

"Receiving the "pay and medical benefits earned by those wounded in combat""
But they weren't wounded in combat. They and those killed were slaughtered by a United States Army Major while on a base in the United States. That isn't combat.
Help them out but do it for the right reason. Don't attempt create something that isn't real. It doesn't take a lot of common sense to know what combat is and the reasoning behind awards having to meet certain criteria.
Next a member of the Military killed by a drunk driver on a Military Base in the United States receives a Purple Heart. Hogwash.
AW, these people, military or civilian DOD, were killed or wounded by the effing ENEMY! They deserve the same awards as those given in combat situations overseas. For GOD's sake, can we not recognize and name our enemy? (capital letters mean I'm shouting at my computer screen!)
The two knifemen are understood to have been shot by armed police, although Scotland Yard will still only confirm officers had been called to reports of ‘an assault’ on John Wilson Street at around 2.20pm.
Eyewitness James Heneghan told LBC 97.3 he and his wife had witnessed two men hacking at a third man with two large kitchen knives.
‘We saw the whole incident,’ he said fighting back tears. ‘They were hacking at this poor guy, hacking him, chopping him.’
Mr Heneghan claimed one of the suspects had pointed a gun at his wife before they jumped back into his car and called the police.
He went on to claim that after the men had attacked the victim they dragged him into the middle of the street ‘like a piece of meat’.
A group of women then rushed to the victim to shield him from further attacks, Mr Heneghan continued, as the two knifemen stopped a passing bus and encouraged passengers to take pictures of them while they posed with their knives.
OK a lot to comment on, but some thing struck me, doesn't England have ultra strict gun laws? You know the kind that would keep guns (even crappy ones) out of the hands of criminals. But not only where these guys running around with big ass knives they had guns.... Yeah makes me feel safer knowing these laws are there to protect people.
It still will take more blood in the street to have any change to Britain. English Defense League and UKIP will not go far enough or to far that hold that turns everyone off. Then the Muslim invasion with blood and body parts in the streets will continue.
England is like all other countries including the US in that we are not tolerant of murder being committed by non nationals. In the USA we can accept the 12,000 killed each year by our fellow citizens but DAMNIT not any by foreigners!
And tried as hard as i could not to smile at that verbal discrption with the patois but couldn't .
As soon as they point a gun at you all bets are off. I realize that the British don't have nearly the rights we do here in the states regarding weapons. Anyone sitting in a car with any sense would have put it in gear, run over them and backed up over them again. As to me I just would have pulled out Sam Colt and shot both of them once right through that thing they think is a head. KILL ALL HIRABI'S!!!
This seems so strange to me... and I guess that's because i'm a Texan. In my state these two animals would have been shot dead long before the cops showed up! Someone like myself would have double-tapped both of them before they completed their butchery.
Heck.. I wouldn't even need to bother our system with cleaning up the mess... I could solve the problem with 3-4 crab traps in the bay!
These guys may have been trained in Compton, California. That's exactly how they act when they've "HAD ENOUGH" of unfair welfare benefits. The solution is always kill whitey. Of course the motivation isn't racist.
But if you're a white golfer and say fried chicken you're a RACIST.

The Obama Presidency Summed Up In A Minute
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video is priceless.
SoCal: Man Attempts To Kidnap, Marry Girl
I'm surprised California isn't accusing the girl of Islamophobia. I mean, really, how dare she judge his cultural heritage in favor of her own!
Saif Mohamed Moussa was booked on suspicion of kidnapping and child annoyance and was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail, said Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
A 17-year-old girl was shopping in the Barnes & Noble store at 26751 Aliso Creek Road about 2 p.m. Saturday when Moussa wrapped her up in a bear hug and started walking her to the front door, Amormino alleged.
"He said he intended to marry her," Amormino said. (Source)

The religion of feebleminded children; they'd be funny if not for the lethal tantrums.
Goes like 'it is permitted to possess the woman you have taken with your right hand'. So, it's fine with olla for mohamadans to do these barbaric things. And it's fine with me for women to kick them in the cods, or better yet, shoot them. But, seriously, we will see more of this, and worse.
Uh oh, it appears Lerner waived her right to invoke The Fifth per Rep Issa and Rep Gowdy as she gave an opening statement "with an "assertion". Rep Gowdy: "Ms. Lerner cannot tell her side of the story and then not stick around for “cross-examination.” The audience applauded after Rep Gowdy's statement:
Cummings disagrees, "this is not a federal court of law". Pfffft
Rep Issa after discussing said problem: "The witness and council are dismissed" Lerner was last seen running down the hallway with quite a few cameramen following her.
Update: Rep Cummings is trying like hell to blame Booooosh.
I wonder if the poster and other things are being done during work time? Shouldn't IRS employees be working during work hours and why are their supervisors allowing this. It's firing time and their union can go to hell. Government Employees should act like government employees and not spend the taxpayers time and money on personal business.
Michael, could you let me know exactly what the "21st century" stands for? The point of the video was to contrast the philosophy of Islam with that of Christianity, per their founding leaders. Christ, of course, was around several centuries prior to Mohammed yet the basis of western thought has been molded by Judeo-Christian ethics and values over the millenia. My point being that just because we're in the "21st century" doesn't mean that we're also somehow "enlightened", in fact it's plain to see that we're now, culturally, turning our back on Christ and his philosophy.
Will we be more like Christ at the end of this century? or less?
That said, to answer your question, "never". You can't change the message of Islam and it is tyrannical, fascistic and completely antithetical to our values. The war between Christianity and Islam never stopped (Ottoman Empire), it just had a break from Islam trying to expand by force. IMO...the "great battle" is inevitable and it is coming soon.
faboutlaws @ 6- Exactly. And though mohamadism is in desperate need of on their own Martin Luther, they will never get one. And if they do get one, they won't debate him. They will kill him. Such behavior is built in to their 'religion'.
A Muslim political candidate suspected of murdering a Christian has instigated calls from mosque loudspeakers for attacks on Christians, whom he blames for his May 11 election loss.
Tensions were high in Punjab Province’s Okara district after provincial assembly seat candidate Mehr Abdul Sattar, sought by police in connection with a 2008 murder, on May 13 arranged for mosque calls for violence against Christian villages.
“Burn their homes to the ground … Punish them such that they forget Gojra and Joseph Colony,” blared village mosques in the district, according to Younas Iqbal, chairman of the Anjuman-e-Mazareen Punjab, a peasant movement fighting for land rights.[More...]
