Obama Phones New French Socialist President Hollande – Invites Him To The White House

(Yahoo!) President Barack Obama congratulated French president-elect Francois Hollande for his victory Sunday, but warned of “challenges” ahead, a clear reference to Afghanistan and eurozone debt crisis.

The US president was among the first world leaders to welcome Hollande’s election as France’s first Socialist president in nearly two decades, a result sure to have major implications for Europe as it struggles to emerge from a financial crisis.

Obama invited Hollande for bilateral talks at the White House later this month ahead of a G8 leaders meeting he will host at his Camp David retreat in Maryland between May 18-19, and a NATO transatlantic alliance summit in Chicago on May 20-21.

In a telephone call, Obama “indicated that he looks forward to working closely with Mr Hollande and his government on a range of shared economic and security challenges,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

Among the thorny issues the two leaders will have to address is the eurozone debt crisis, which Washington sees as a threat to its still-halting recovery after a grueling recession.

After claiming ‘minority‘ status, just how low will the entitled Elizabeth Warren (1/1750th Indian) go in order to continue benefiting from America’s taxpayer-funded ‘free money’ giveaway programs?

It’s amazing how unchecked temptation can justify even the most retarded behavior.

Sadly, under our socialist regime, all humans living on US soil are now entitled to some form of taxpayer support due to skin color and/or ‘heritage.’ Why simply adding a ‘hyphen‘ to your nationality can yield untold dividends: Native-American, African-American, Mexican-American…

This image is front-and-center on today’s Orlando Sentinel – the Ministry of Truth’s primary outlet for millions of media bubbleheads living in and around Sanford, FL where the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman incident occurred and subsequent trials are being held.

THINK about this for a minute. THINK! Nearly every ‘news’ story that comes out of government-subsidized MSM propaganda machines is laced with this degree of manufactured emotion and tripe. Yet folks pay to subscribe.

*sigh*

Anyhoo, if you aren’t vomiting into a trash can – like I was – by the end of this soap opera, you may need counseling.

The good news is, I’m here to help.

For starters, I’ll save you the laborious trip to Big Brother’s ‘information’ portal so you can immediately enjoy their insightful observations regarding the life of Obama’s ‘angelic’ son.

Trayvon Martin’s Father Recalls Moments With His Son, ‘My Best Friend’

(Orlando Sentinel) Tracy Martin drives a truck for a living, but his son preferred something with two wheels.

“Trayvon loved riding on the motorcycle with me,” Martin recalls. He had been teaching his son to ride, but while returning home to Miami Gardens, Trayvon asked to test his highway skills for the first time on Florida’s Turnpike.

“He just kept telling me, ‘I can drive, I can drive,’ ” Martin said.

Though they weren’t far from home, Martin had trepidations. But he decided Trayvon was ready. “I relaxed and let him do his thing. He surprised me.”

It was a proud moment for Martin, Trayvon taking another step toward adulthood. Three weeks later, his son was dead. Martin now clings to those memories.

“It’s moments like that that the public doesn’t know,” said Martin, 45. “Those were the kinds of things that I look back on and I can smile.”

Martin spoke with the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday from Birmingham, Ala., where he; Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton; and family attorney Benjamin Crump attended a march in the slain teen’s honor.

The couple, who divorced in 1999, are now facing a media firestorm together while also coping with every parent’s worst nightmare: the loss of a child.

Though they split when he was just 4 years old, Trayvon’s parents have been inseparable since his death, making virtually all of their public and media appearances together.

Martin said they remained friends after the divorce, recognizing their son needed both parents. But Trayvon’s shooting death in late February at the hands of an armed Neighborhood Watch volunteer “has brought us closer,” he said.

More than ever, “we need to lean on each other. We know we need each other to get us through this.”

‘A Very Good Father’

Before all of the media and public attention, the death of Trayvon went largely unnoticed locally. Then, Tracy Martin — a Miami native who has been a driver for Sysco Corp. for more than a decade — reached out to his sister-in-law, who is a lawyer.

“It was really the hopelessness in his eyes,” Crump said.

The overwhelming support at rallies and protests has given Martin and Fulton hope, Crump said. Martin still breaks down describing the day he found out about his son’s death, but Crump said the despondency of that first meeting has only returned once.

“The only real time that I saw that look of hopelessness on Tracy was at [shooter George Zimmerman's] bond hearing” last month, Crump said.

As Zimmerman, in a shocking development, took the witness stand and delivered an apology to Trayvon’s parents, Martin was distraught, Crump recalled. Martin and Fulton, 46, left the hearing together without commenting on Zimmerman’s remarks.

Several family friends who have spoken publicly since the shooting detailed Martin’s relationship with his son and his presence in Trayvon’s life — taking him fishing and attending football games and practices.

“Just seeing your child grow up in general is very important,” Martin said. “That was real important to me.”

Martin often tells this story: In 2004, Trayvon rescued him from a house fire after he fell asleep while food was cooking on the stove. Without Trayvon’s help, he says, he would have died. But the close bond with Trayvon that others have described began long before that, he said.

“Trayvon has been, so to speak, my best friend since the time he could walk,” Martin said.

Alicia Stanley, whom Martin married in 2005, said it was always apparent to her that Martin and Trayvon “were the best of friends.”

“He is a very good father,” Stanley told the Sentinel. She said she and Martin split up just weeks before Trayvon’s death.

Stanley said Trayvon was like a son to her, too. Martin, she said, is “a good person; he’s very kindhearted. That’s the way his son was, too.”

Martin is “trying to get justice for our son,” Stanley said. “He’s not going to rest until he gets it.”

‘It Was My Son … Dead’

Everything changed for Tracy Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford. He and Trayvon were staying with his girlfriend, Brandy Green, in the Retreat at Twin Lakes gated community.

When Tracy Martin and Green returned home that night, he said, Trayvon wasn’t there.

The elder Martin said he called his son’s cellphone, but it went to voice mail. He remembered Trayvon had made plans to see a movie with a family member and thought, “Maybe they are in the movie, and they turned their phones off.”

He went to sleep that night, he said, trusting his son would return. The next morning, as he grew more worried, Martin called law enforcement and asked to file a missing-persons report.

Still, “I just knew that Trayvon’s going to be coming home with an excuse,” he said. “It was unusual for my kid not to come home, not to be answering his phone and not to call me.”

A Sanford police detective arrived. Tracy Martin showed him a photo of his son, and the detective retrieved a folder from an unmarked car.

They went inside Green’s home, and the detective revealed the folder’s contents, Martin said.

“They showed me a picture, and it was my son, laying on the ground dead.”

obama campaign half-empty stadium arena ohio state sad hill news

yaay…

Obama Launches Campaign In Half-Empty Arena

(Breitbart) Barack Obama launched his campaign in unspectacular fashion today at Ohio State University, the largest college in the crucial swing state. A photo posted to twitter by Mitt Romney’s campaign spokesman Ryan Williams reveals sparse attendance. The above image, according to Williams, was taken during the President’s first official campaign speech.

During the speech, Obama ripped into the presumptive GOP nominee and discussed nation building at home, but the most newsworthy item of the day was not the talking points Obama delivered: it was the crowd… or lack thereof. According to ABC News, the Obama campaign had expected an “overflow” of people. Instead, the arena looked half-empty. The Columbus Dispatch reports that Obama organizers even had people move from the seats to the floor of the gym in order to project a larger crowd on television.

According to the Toledo Blade, the venue for Obama’s rally seats 20,000 but “there were a lot of empty seats.” Comparatively, Obama drew a crowd of 35,000 at Ohio State when he campaigned for former Governor Ted Strickland in 2010.

~snip~

To hold a campaign event in a room that you can’t fill is a mistake; to promise the media a more-than-capacity crowd then fall this far short of that promise is utter incompetence. In 2008, Obama ran a near-flawless campaign, buoyed by enthusiasm and effective organizing. But it’s not 2008 any more, and on day one of the 2012 campaign, Team Obama has already made an embarrassing blunder.

…and there was much rejoicing:

Who cares what ‘mainstream‘ media thinks?! Apparently the majority of ‘Americans’ do, which is exactly why Obama happens.

Rub-a-dub-scrub, let the brainwashing begin…

Cinco de Mayo a Mexican import? No, it’s as American as July 4, prof says

(CNN) Cinco de Mayo — the unofficial U.S. holiday long believed to have been imported, with celebratory beer, from Mexico — isn’t a Mexican holiday at all but rather an American one created by Latinos in the West during the Civil War, according to new research by a California professor.

Conventional thinking has held that the holiday — now a commercial juggernaut — may have grown out of the mass migrations from the bloody Mexican Revolution of the 1910s or even during Chicano Power activism of the 1960s, University of California at Los Angeles Professor David Hayes-Bautista said.

But on the 150th anniversary of the holiday, Hayes-Bautista is announcing that he happened upon the true origins of Cinco de Mayo — the 5th of May — after poring over Spanish-language newspapers in California from the mid-1800s while working on another research project.

Cinco de Mayo does indeed mark a Mexican military victory over the invading French army on May 5, 1862, but it’s celebrated more in the United States because in 1862, U.S. Latinos of Mexican heritage parlayed the victory as a rallying cry that the Union could also win the Civil War.

~snip~

Yeah, yeah, yeah… let’s jump to the meaningful portion of CNN’s article they conveniently buried at the end. You know, the part most folks – after being programmed by the big, bold headline and countless paragraphs of propaganda – won’t bother to read. – Sad Hill

The Cinco de Mayo victory was then memorialized through a network of Latino groups called “juntas patrioticas mejicanas,” or Mexican patriotic assemblies, mostly in California but also in Oregon, Nevada and Arizona, with 14,000 members, Hayes-Bautista said.

But by 1890, the grandchildren of the veterans and juntas had to be taught about Cinco de Mayo, Hayes-Bautista said.

The meaning of the holiday changed over time, becoming a David versus Goliath tale among Mexican immigrants in the 1930s and embodying U.S.-Mexico unity during World War II and Chicano Power in the 1960s and 1970s, Hayes-Bautista said.

In his book, he described Cinco de Mayo’s “undeniable commercialization in the late 20th century, a fake holiday recently invented by beverage companies.

In his interview with CNN, Hayes-Bautista stated: “Now it’s become this big commercial holiday and a wonderful opportunity to get services and products in front of the Latino market and it even got its own postage in 1996 and in 2005 President Bush even had a Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House.

But if you ask why is anyone celebrating, no one knows. And then you get some people who say it shouldn’t be celebrated at all because it’s a foreign holiday — and yet it’s as American a holiday as the Fourth of July,” he said.

R.I.P. Beastie Boys ‘MCA’: Adam Yauch

(Rolling Stone) Adam Yauch, one-third of the pioneering hip-hop group the Beastie Boys, has died at the age of 47, Rolling Stone has learned. Yauch, also known as MCA, had been in treatment for cancer since 2009. The rapper was diagnosed in 2009 after discovering a tumor in his salivary gland.

“It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist and director Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch, founding member of Beastie Boys and also of the Milarepa Foundation that produced the Tibetan Freedom Concert benefits, and film production and distribution company Oscilloscope Laboratories, passed away in his native New York City this morning after a near-three-year battle with cancer,” reads an official statement from the Beastie Boys. “He was 47 years old.”

With 23 million Americans struggling for work, our national debt soaring, and household budgets being squeezed like never before, Mitt Romney is focused on strengthening America at home and abroad.”

obama buys votes taxpayer money let me be perfectly clear sad hill news

My ‘favorite’ excuse from the bankrupt Obama-supporting company should they not acquire more taxpayer cash, “And the failure to obtain these funds or other incentives could materially and adversely affect our ability to expand our manufacturing capacity and meet planned production levels.”

Let’s hope none of the company employees pass their chronic Liberal ‘I’m entitled’ behavior onto their kids…unless, of course, they want America to fail (see video below).

After $257 Million Loss, Taxpayer-Funded ‘Green’ Energy Company Needs More Cash

(Foundry) A financially troubled green energy company has seen its stock prices plummet to below a dollar per share since receiving a nearly $250 million federal grant in 2009. The company lost $257.7 million last year. Two of its clients make up half of its business, and one is also struggling financially.

But none of that has stopped A123 Systems, which manufactures batteries for electric vehicles, from applying for another $233 million in federal backing through the Energy Department’s Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing program, according to its latest filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission

“We have made a loan application under the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program, or the ATVM Program, to support our continued manufacturing expansion,” A123 said in the SEC filing. “Based on the amount of our grant award under the DOE Battery Initiative and the guidelines associated with the ATVM Program, we believe we will be permitted to borrow up to $233 million under the ATVM Program.”

a123-automotive-cell

Whether A123 meets that qualification is questionable. “Much of our planned domestic manufacturing capacity expansion depends on receipt of these funds [from the ATVM program] and other incentives,” the company stated in its SEC filing, “and the failure to obtain these funds or other incentives could materially and adversely affect our ability to expand our manufacturing capacity and meet planned production levels.”

The Energy Department did not return multiple requests for comment on A123’s loan application.

Even if the company is eligible for the loan, however, it is in dire financial straits, and may be a shaky bet for an administration already plagued by a series of Solyndra-esque green energy flops.

According to its SEC filing, A123 is relying not only on further federal funding, but on its two largest clients, which together account for half of its business. One of those companies, Fisker Automotive, is also financially troubled.

“For the year ended December 31, 2011,” its filing states, “revenue from our two largest customers, Fisker and AES Energy Storage, LLC and its affiliates, or AES, represented 26% and 24% of our revenue, respectively.”

Fisker, which received a $529 million loan through the ATVM program despite conducting significant portions of its operations in Finland, delayed production of one of its models, and was forced to lay off 65 employees. A pair of U.S. senators is investigating DOE’s decision to award its Fisker loan.
