Obama, childhood buddies
go golfing in California

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/15/2014 2:23:07 PM

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

Comments:
Choom Gang reunion.

King Abdullah had to fly to California for this meeting, after being in DC for several days and meeting with other members of the government. Obie told us that he had to go to California to meet with the king. Slick, right?

"childhood buddies"? Be serious.

These were his drug-using Choom Gang buddies at Punahou (high school) in Hawaii.

How can Bobby Titcomb afford to fly to CA to play golf with Barry? What does he do for a living? Do we have to to pay for his stay at the resort? Maybe he shares a room with his Choom buddy since Mo isn´t there. There is more to this than meets the eye.

Obama could care less about his old high school buddies. My guess is he keeps in touch with them and occasionally treats them to a fancy outing just to be sure they keep their mouths shut about his Hawaii years.

If President Bush consistently , year after year ,
vacationed with a man arrested for
soliciting a male cop in drag.....
it would be the story 24/ 7.
Barry doesn´t care because he knows the national media and unfortunately many on the right ,
will always protect him and his dirty little secrets.
Although, after he´s out of office, they´ll probably be knocking themselves over to be the first to write the eye popping tell alls.
Apparently Titcomb did not graduate from Punahou High School.
According to the UK Mail :
"Very little is known about his background.
According to the Spring 2007 edition of the Punahou Bulletin, he worked as..... a Northwest Airlines flight attendant. "
Coffee, tea or me, Barry ???

Obama´s time at Punahou -- a country club campus with nine tennis courts, an Olympic-size pool and an endowment of $180 million.

As near as I can figure...

Greg Orme: was a basketball buddy. He related to Obama as they both rode the pine.
Michael Ramos: Not sure but he was a jazz buddy.
Bobby Titcomb: Was a buddy who would go with Obama on long camping trips. They would live off of nuts and berries as they "roughed it" in the wilds of Hawaii. Titcomb was arrested in 2011 for soliciting a male prostitute.

Conclusions? You tell me.

Call traced to co-pilot´s phone

KUALA LUMPUR: A CREW member of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 made a desperate call from his mobile phone as the plane was flying low near Penang, the morning it went missing. The latest breakthrough in the ongoing criminal investigation traced the source of the call to co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid´s phone.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
