CAMP PENDLETON - President Barack Obama will conclude a two-day West Coast swing Wednesday by visiting troops and their families at Camp Pendleton to thank them for their service to the nation. Obama will arrive at the Marine Corps base in northern San Diego County from the Los Angeles area after fielding online questions from homeowners, renters and prospective buyers in a virtual housing roundtable discussion. Obama began the trip Tuesday in Arizona where he toured a construction company and delivered a speech at a Phoenix high school, calling for sweeping housing reforms,

He just loves flying all over the country, seeking adoration from the hand-picked crowds. He´ll be so worn out that he´ll really need the Martha´s Vineyard vacay later this week. I´m glad that we don´t need to worry about 20+ embassies being closed and the world-wide travel alert. He´s got it all under control.

Too bad Marines are so darn good at following orders. If they were left to their own opinions on this it would be great.

#4 is exactly right. Marines will only attend because they´re ordered too, but their thoughts will not be so controlled.

Conflict in Ukraine stirs unrest

Washington Post, by Steven Mufson & Howard Schneider    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/3/2014 9:40:25 PM     Post Reply
Russia didn’t fire any shots in Ukraine on Monday, but there were plenty of casualties on Russia’s currency, bond and stock markets — even as Western nations rushed to plan their economic defense of the current government in Kiev. Share prices of Russian companies plunged nearly 11 percent, and the Russian ruble tumbled to an all-time low against the U.S. dollar despite Russia’s nearly half-trillion-dollar hoard of foreign exchange. The country’s natural gas monopoly, Gazprom, which sells to Ukraine and other parts of Europe through pipelines crossing Ukraine, fell about 12 percent, wiping out nearly $13 billion in shareholder value

Remember the California couple who found $10 million in gold coins on their property? They’re probably going to end up with NOTHING in the final analysis, as breaking news from San Francisco reveals that the source of the mystery gold has been discovered: A story that describes a gold heist from the San Francisco Mint at the turn of the century could explain the source of the gold coins worth $10 million that were found last month in California’s Mother Lode country.

The pizza delivery seen round the world ended with a hefty $1,000 tip after all. Edgar Martirosyan, the owner of Big Mama’s and Papa’s Pizzeria in West Hollywood, pulled up to his six-table restaurant Monday afternoon and said his big moment in the spotlight was as much a shock as it was a financial boon to his business. “I didn’t know. It was a big surprise for me,” Martirosyan told the Daily News, calling the experience "cool." “They told me I’m going to deliver pizzas for writers, and then when I went there, Ellen (DeGeneres) came out and told me,

The former handler of the first military dog adopted by the NYPD is hoping to reunite with his long-lost war buddy after spotting the pooch’s mug in The Post. Retired Army vet Brian Connelly, who served with bomb-sniffing pooch Cezar in Afghanistan, was elated when he recognized his old pal’s picture in a Feb. 21 Post story. “I just knew it was Cezar,” Connelly said. “The way his look was veering off [in the photo], it looked like he was going to go after something.

NEW YORK- Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law was introduced to prospective jurors Monday at the start of his trial on charges that he conspired to kill Americans and support terrorists in his role as al-Qaida´s spokesman after the Sept. 11 attacks. U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan asked Sulaiman Abu Ghaith to turn and face the potential jurors before asking if any knew him. None did. The judge drew silence as well when he asked if there was anyone who had never heard of al-Qaida. The questioning was part of a process designed to shrink a jury pool of dozens of prospective

Anti-Obama Street Art

A rogue street artist has ambushed the 86th Academy Awards with a slew of street art posters poking fun at President Barack Obama and the Oscars. The posters, of unknown origin, feature the Oscar statue with Vladimir Lenin´s head and the title "OCZARS," referring to the proliferation of "czars"--powerful officials with no congressional oversight--in the Obama administration. The "O" is the Obama campaign´s familiar symbol. Last month, another series of anti-Obama posters appeared across West L.A. to coincide with the Northern Trust Open PGA golf tournament. The posters showed President Obama golfing,

These incredible photographs show a huge tank graveyard in the Ukraine - home to hundreds of the abandoned vehicles which the country may desperately need if tensions with Russia continue to escalate. Filled with rows upon rows of slowly rusting relics, the once deadly war machines now lie dormant in a secret depot in the city of Kharkiv in the Slobozhanshchyna region of eastern Ukraine - just 20 miles from the border with Russia. Despite it being heavily guarded, photographer Pavel Itkin, 18, was able to sneak into the plant and spent several hours taking photographs. After hearing about the

The Washington Post’s editorial board strongly criticized President Barack Obama’s approach to foreign affairs on Sunday. The paper’s board wrote that the president’s foreign policy doctrine is “based on a fantasy” and the dynamics that govern balancing behaviors among great powers still matter, “much as we might wish they did not.” They added that Obama’s policy of reducing America’s global military influence is destabilizing and harmful to American national security. The editorial began by summarizing Obama’s world view and the realities he believes should govern geopolitics. They added that the world’s intellectual class has largely bought into the notion that

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

He didn’t even have to memorize the names of all of the performers of the Best Original Song nominees since he was only introducing one of them. He didn’t even have to memorize Idina Menzel’s name. It was right there on the teleprompter. Yet here is how it came out: “Please welcome the ‘Wicked’-ly talented, one and only Adele Dazim.” Adele Dazim? Maybe it was an anagram.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
