COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Michelle Obama: Kenya is Barack Obama's "home country" - 04/04/10

The video at peekURL.com/vzgiubo [1] shows Michelle Obama speaking to an LGBT Delegate dinner on August 26, 2008 and she clearly states the following: "Barack has led by example. When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya we took a public HIV test for the very point of showing folks in Kenya that there is nothing to be embarrassed about in getting tested." That's not a slip of the tongue and she doesn't correct herself: she states it as a simple fact. Does this prove that Obama was born in Kenya? No, and it doesn't provide strong evidence of it either. It certainly...

Sally Quinn drools all over Michelle Obama's arms - 05/10/09

Washington Post "Staff Writer" Sally Quinn offers "The Nation's Embracing, and Embraceable, Arms" (link): "May I change the subject," said a prominent Washington theologian at a recent dinner. The conversation had been high-minded -- religion, philosophy, the nature of evil. "I'd like to talk about Michelle Obama's arms," he said. He is a big fan of those arms. We then began a discussion about the significance of the first lady's arms. Actually, it turned out to be equally serious. Michelle Obama's arms, we determined, were transformational. Her arms are representative of a new kind of woman...

They come in denim and satin versions, and have been a brisk seller all spring... Michelle has stepped out in Lanvin before while getting down to business. A week ago, she shoveled dirt at a tree planting while wearing the line's chiffon tank... In the second photo she might be rebuilding her larder in case the White...

Give like Michelle Obama: toy helicopters like ones given to Gordon Brown available for $4.11 - 03/06/09

Now, you members of hoi polloi can give gifts just like Michelle Obama! On his recent visit, UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown was presented with panoply of goods that would make a potlatch-throwing chief mad with envy, including 25 DVDs and two small toy helicopters for his sons. The latter were presented by Michelle, and she actually went all the way to the White House gift shop to get them (perhaps with her employee's discount). As it turns out (link): Similar models of Marine One in identical-looking boxes bearing the White House crest are sold on Amazon for $15 (£10.67). But, you can...

Whitehouse.gov omits Blagojevich link from Michael Strautmanis biography - 01/20/09

The all new whitehouse dot gov has a new Office of Public Liaison & Intergovernmental Affairs, the new president's gatekeepers to hoi polloi. That office's "Chief of Staff to the Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Relations and Public Liaison" is Michael Strautmanis, a long-time Obama associate who also used to work for Rod Blagojevich. Oddly enough, that association is not listed in his biography (link and full text below). Even the New York Times tells us this (go here and browse people): A longtime friend of the Obamas who once worked as Michele Obama's paralegal. Obama's...
