Americans were shocked to learn of the National Security Agency’s reach into their private lives. A shocking new report released today revealed the NSA steals over 200 million text messages PER DAY!
In order to assuage the fears of Americans, President Obama held a hasty press conference to announce sweeping reforms of the NSA’s intelligence collection to give the American people confidence that their privacy is being protected.
Troubled music producer and rapper Kanye West took to his Twitter account yesterday to clear up rumors that he compared himself to the late, great Nelson Mandela.
In a series of tweets, Kanye lauded Mandela for serving “as a guiding light to illuminate our future,” and he chastised the media for engineering “false stories and noise” about him.
“I’ve never said anything to dishonor or trivialize the life or transition of one of the most inspiring leaders,” West tweeted.
It isn’t clear how the rumor got started, but it’s not a stretch to believe the egotistic producer said those things about himself. Anyway, thanks to Kanye for clearing that up.
Judy Smith, the D.C. damage control expert who inspired ABC’s hit TV series Scandal, says she has not seen a disaster like Obamacare in a while. She added that President Obama has lost the trust of the American people with his problem-plagued Obamacare launch.
Smith, who was a guest on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, said “I think it is very problematic really because this was [President Barack Obama's] signature piece of legislation. And I think everybody agrees that [Obamacare] has been an absolute mess.”
Media mogul Russell Simmons says President Obama’s troubled health care law has already saved thousands, if not millions, of lives. Simmons made his ludicrous claims in an op-ed post on his website, Global Grind.
“Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act,” Simmons wrote. “But, [Obamacare] is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now.”
Simmons did not provide any statistics or evidence to back up his claims.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie criticized the problem plagued rollout of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare on CBS This Morning.
Christie said President Obama failed to keep his promise to the American people — that they could keep their health insurance plans when OabamCare launched. “People weren’t told the truth,” Christie said.
The Internet is buzzing about President Obama sacking high ranking White House official Jofi Joseph, a director with the National Security Staff.
The Daily Beast blog reports that Joseph was fired last week when Obama discovered he was a White House mole leaking classified information under a fake Twitter name since 2011.
The Daily Beast saved a long list of Joseph’s tweets before they were deleted. “I’m a fan of Obama, but his continuing reliance and dependence upon a vacuous cipher like Valerie Jarrett concerns me,” he once tweeted.
I took the liberty of looking up “vacuous cipher” for those of you who were wondering what it meant. It means a person of no importance who has or shows a lack of intelligence; or a mindless individual who lacks a personality.
Welp, so much for Obama running a tight ship in the White House. Here he is worrying about NSA leaker Edward Snowden over in Russia when he had a spy operating right under his nose for over 2 years. And if there was one spy in the White House, you know there must be more.
Channel 2 News reporter Liz Artz and photographer Justin Crate became part of the news when they stumbled upon a pickup truck blocking the right northbound lane on the Buford Connector shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday. Video shot by Crate shows the unidentified driver slumped over his steering wheel and drooling.
Artz called 911, and a Georgia Department of Transportation Highway Emergency Response Operator (HERO) was the first to arrive at the scene. The HERO operator succeeded in awakening the driver from his slumber. The driver then began to tussle with the HERO operator before speeding off in his truck. The driver drove a short distance north on the Buford Connector before crashing into two cars.
