First lady Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday bash on Saturday was reportedly everything you’d expect from a glamorous White House party: Glitzy and stocked with powerful celebrities and government officials.
It was also a highly secretive affair.
“So great was the secrecy surrounding the party,” the Chicago Tribune reported, “that guests were handed an invitation — on their way out.”
The White House apparently didn’t want photos of the “lavish” party leaking onto the Internet. So a strict “no cellphone” rule was enforced on the nearly 500 people in attendance.
Guests were not only told to leave their cellphones at home, but the ones who ignored this rule were made to surrender their phones at door, according to the Tribune.
“Signs at the party told guests: No cellphones, no social media,” People magazine reported, citing anonymous sources. “Guests had been greeted by a ‘cellphone check’ table where they deposited their camera phones on arrival and it was understood that this was not an occasion for tweeting party photos or Facebooking details.”
It appears the White House’s strategy was successful. Indeed, aside from a few tweets and Facebook posts about “having a good time” at the White House, there has been virtually no photographic evidence of Saturday’s party.
So why all the secrecy?
More Tax Money WASTED on this!!
Only the words "May you move soon to the back hills of peasant Red China to live your hopefully soon dying days in oblivion!"
You do understand that Fraud Kingpin had a law passed---AND IT DID!!---that his security and all those after him will be paid with our Tax Dollars.

But he walks out of OUR WHITE HOUSE rich beyond belief b/c our gov't. is so corrupt, but he will and his will be in our Welfare line forever...only the clintoons did this and it includes Chelsea as well.

Who does this ghetto queen thinks she is. She better get ready for a life in isolation in the near future.
The reason no Cellphones at the party, so no one can do what had happened when a Democrat used his cell phone at a Romney meeting to discredit him. The Obama's both know they are anti-American, and cannot have proof seen on Social Media as it would expose their hand too soon. You know that the selected party-goers were only approved due to their undying loyalty to Obama.
