    WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES - The unusual creature was born by cesarean section on a farm in the Philippines earlier this month but locals are worried it's a cursed 'mutant devil' A farmer was left shocked after his goat gave birth to a ‘half-pig half-human' creature. There are now fears the creature was cursed and could bring bad luck to the family. Some have even said the creature could be a ‘mutant devil’. Josephine Repique, 40, said the pregnant goat went into labour earlier this month on November 2 at the small farm in Sultan Kudarat, the Philippines. The two babies...

    For many, it was a total surprise that former President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize back in 2009 after he was only in office a few months. Rumors are now swirling around in the British media that Barack Obama may see his prize withdrawn in the light of another world leader - Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi - who recently lost Amnesty International's (AI) highest award.
  • Obama Says Trump is Confused Angry Racist w/ Mommy Issues and Incapable of Fixing Countrys Problems

    Barack Obama hinted that Trump's 'mommy issues' are part of what makes him incapable of fixing the nation's problems. He told the audience at the Obama Foundation summit in Chicago that the world 'badly needs remaking' insisting fixing issues around climate change, education, agriculture and so on are not nearly as complicated as they are made out to be. Without mentioning Trump by name, Obama said 'the reason we don't do it is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues.' Trump has previously credited his mother Mary MacLeod Trump, who died in 2000, for...

    A federal judge in San Francisco on Monday barred the Trump administration from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally, likely prompting a legal challenge from the White House. Trump issued a proclamation on Nov. 9 that said anyone who crossed the southern border would be ineligible for asylum. U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar, who was nominated by President Obama in 2012 to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, issued a temporary restraining order after hearing arguments in San Francisco.

    From an office suite on the 26th floor of the iconic Frost Bank Tower in Austin, Texas, a little-known recruiting firm called Crossover is searching the globe for software engineers. Crossover is looking for anyone who can commit to a 40- or 50-hour workweek, but it has no interest in full-time employees. It wants contract workers who are willing to toil from their homes or even in local cafes. “The best people in the world aren’t in your Zip code,” says Andy Tryba, chief executive of Crossover, in a promotional YouTube video. Which, Tryba emphasizes, also means you don’t have...

    German conservative Manfred Weber, who is running to take over the European Union’s top job next year, said on Monday that turning the European bailout fund (ESM) into a European Monetary Fund (EMF) should be a priority. […] “The political picture behind that is that in the last eurozone crisis, we asked for the IMF’s (International Monetary Fund) help. Barack Obama was the president then, so partnership was possible. In future crises, which we can’t exclude happening, I as a European don’t want to be dependent on the White House.” …

    More than a year after the US Environmental Protection Agency took down information on climate change from its website for an “update”, it now seems uncertain whether it will ever reappear. In April last year, the EPA replaced its online climate change section with a holding page that said the content was being updated to “reflect the agency’s new direction under President Donald Trump”. Information previously found at epa.gov/climatechange made it clear that human activity was warming the planet, resulting in harm to Americans’ health as well as crucial ecosystems on which humans depend. The “update” page has now given...

    What do Democrat, losers, Andrew Gillum, Stacey Abrams & Bill Nelson all have in common. Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey & Chuck Schumer all came to Florida and Georgia to campaign for them...and all of them lost their races. Of course, the Democrats with brains & street smarts, realized that having the Obama's, Clinton, Schumer & Winfrey campaign for them is the kiss of political death. I see the Clintons have cancelled their grand tour, no one has signed up to attend. Methinks, the Obama's and Clinton's are toast as effective campaigners for any Democrats. Case...
  • Obama cyber chief confirms 'stand down' order against Russian cyberattacks in summer 2016

    WASHINGTON — The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016. The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn,...

I mean where did you go” Kimmel said after Michelle Obama sat down to continuous applause from the audience. “We need you back in the old house.” “You know how we feel?” Kimmel continued. “You remember the first Superman movie, Christopher Reeve. When he gave up his powers to save Lois Lane’s life and then he was...

    On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal across the U.S., declaring that refusing to do so would violate the Constitution. Shortly after the high court’s landmark decision, the Obama administration celebrated by lighting the White House in rainbow colors. Now, more than three years after that historic Obergefell v. Hodges ruling, former first lady Michelle Obama revealed that she and her daughter Malia, then 16, snuck out of the White House that night to join in on the fun happening outside their residence. Obama also recounted the story in her appearance Thursday on “The Ellen...

    Sure, I know there’s more important news: thousands of barbarians at the gate, thousands of “uncounted” ballots in Florida, thousands of acres of forests consumed by fire in California. But is there anything more compelling than a little palace intrigue? Especially a little palace intrigue that involves a cat fight? No, nothing. So that’s what I’m covering today.MSM would have you believe that the reason FLOTUS called for the dismissal of Mira Ricardel, deputy national security adviser, was due to a dispute over seating arrangements on Air Force 1 for Melania’s African “Be Best” tour. More or less ignored was...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama wrote that she was unable to put on a happy face and smile during President Donald Trump's inauguration in her new book, according to ABC News. "Someone from Barack's administration might have said that the optics there were bad, that what the public saw didn't reflect the President's reality or ideals, but in this case, maybe it did," Obama said in audio of the book. "Realizing it, I made my own optic adjustment. I stopped even trying to smile." In its interview with Obama, ABC News further quoted from her book, where the former first...

I think you’d do a great job.” Roberts asked Obama if she was “saying that because of what we currently have.” Obama laughed. “You went there!” Roberts added. “You went there,” Obama replied.
