Malia Obama Spends Time With Lena Dunham On 'Girls' Set
[BREITBART] The teenage daughter of a sitting U.S. President is hanging out with Lena Dunham.

President B.O.'s eldest daughter Malia, 16, was spotted in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday spending time on the set of Dunham's HBO comedy series Girls.

Page Six reports Malia, who turns 17 on Saturday, spent about three hours on location in Williamsburg as the show filmed at the Aurora Ristorante on Grand Street, and the teen spent time with Dunham.

While it hasn't been divulged if Malia will appear in an episode of the raunchy feminist-themed show, TMZ reports she is working for Dunham as a summer intern.

Girls went into a ratings free fall during Season Four, and has been criticized for its lack of racial diversity, emotionally detached characters, and overt, aggressive, and degrading sex scenes.

#1  Pretty sure the Secret Service is keeping a close eye on the duo but, still, WTF, is 17 "legal" in Brooklyn?

#3  Now remember - children of politicians are off limits.

(Unless, of course, they are the children of a Republican Vice President Candidate - then all gloves are off!)

#4  Best place for a bunch of phonies is Washington, D.C. And Hollywood. I am guessing 'dancing with the Stars' in the next year or so.

Government
The Hilldebeest's secret war
[Wash Times] In the course of my work, I am often asked by colleagues to review and explain documents and statutes. Recently, in conjunction with my colleagues Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne, I read the transcripts of an interview Ms. Browne did with a man named Marc Turi, and Ms. Herridge asked me to review emails to and from State Department and congressional officials during the years when Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state.

What I saw has persuaded me beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Mrs. Clinton provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress in a venue where the law required her to be truthful. Here is the backstory.

Mr. Turi is a lawfully licensed American arms dealer. In 2011, he applied to the Departments of State and Treasury for approvals to sell arms to the government of Qatar. Qatar is a small Middle Eastern country whose government is so entwined with the U.S. government that it almost always will do what American government officials ask of it.

In its efforts to keep arms from countries and groups that might harm Americans and American interests, Congress has authorized the Departments of State and Treasury to be arms gatekeepers. They can declare a country or group to be a terrorist organization, in which case selling or facilitating the sale of arms to it is a felony. They also can license dealers to sell.

Mr. Turi sold hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of arms to the government of Qatar, which then, at the request of American government officials, were sold, bartered or given to rebel groups in Libya and Syria. Some of the groups that received the arms were on the U.S. terror list. Thus, the same State and Treasury Departments that licensed the sales also prohibited them.

How could that be?

Fox News Legal Analyst Judge Napolitano linked then Sec. of State Clinton's dealings to arm Libyan rebels to the Iran Contra matter during the Reagan administration. It is alleged that these very arms may have been used in the Benghazi attack on 09/11. Parties involved in these dealings had links to known terrorist organizations, yet this fact was ignored by the Foggy Bottom.

#1  But...it's complicated. You wouldn't understand. Isn't there something on HBO?

#2  Qatar is a small Middle Eastern country whose government is so entwined with the U.S. government that it almost always will do what American government officials ask of it.

Apparently the Judge hasn't spent much time in the Middle East. It's more like Quatar knowing how to play the balance-off-all-others game.
