Michelle Obama picks Triniti
for Houston dinner

Houston Chronicle, by Alison Cook

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/11/2014 10:02:28 AM

When I got a direct message on Twitter last night that Michelle Obama had dined at Triniti, I could easily picture the gorgeous and contemporary first lady in that gorgeous and contemporary room. It just seemed right that she had seized some downtime (that guy she’s married to was raising money in River Oaks) in one of Houston’s grandest public dining spaces. Plus, vegetables. Chef Ryan Hildebrand and his crew are big on the seasonal, locally grown produce the First Lady loves so much. Among other things, she dined on the salad I liked so much when I tried it

You have got to be kidding me. Is Alison Cook 13 years old? This is the most syrupy fawning I think I´ve ever read. Its right up there with the children singing "Obama´s gonna change the world".

Somebody call Art Rascone -- I think Triniti would make a good subject of Zindler´s old roach and rat report. Sounds like they had a real bad infestation. Slime in the Ice Machine and everywhere else.

Why is this news? Houston must be at a loss for things like Nevada cattle ranchers being harassed, Sebelius being run out of DC on a rail, or even Letterman being replaced. Who cares where Michelle eats--except that she´s eating on the public dole. Mighty expensive food stamp menu.

Serious barf alert. Her wine selection shows to retail for around $100, so double that. And "in character, the restaurant had to talk her and her companion into one of talented pastry chef Samantha Mendoza’s desserts." I´m sure they really had to talk her into it.

Another quote: " gorgeous and contemporary first lady in that gorgeous and contemporary room." We should ban such nauseating articles before 30 p.m., so as not to gag us on our breakfast and lunch.

Its not news, #5. Its in the Food Chronicles section. All the news items you mentioned are in the US & World section.

Newspapers (and their online counterparts) have things called sections, where different items of varied interests are layed out for people to read.

Oh, and yes, definately a barf alert for this.

A State Department spokeswoman demurred Thursday when asked if the U.S. would respond to Germany’s expulsion of the CIA’s station chief at the embassy in Berlin over fresh allegations of U.S. spying on its European ally. “As you know, we’ve had a range of discussions with Germany over the course of the last several months, and I expect those will continue,” Jen Psaki told a press briefing. “But those will happen through diplomatic channels,” she said, adding that “our relationship is better served by having those take place through those channels.” Asked directly whether the administration was considering expelling somebody

Some remarkable - and frightening - photos of President Obama that show just how disengaged he´s become. As crisis at home and around the world mount, the president is withdrawing and making it plain to those willing to see that the presidency doesn´t interest him anymore. Peggy Noonan´s July 4 op-ed in the Wall Street Journal laid out the case for the president´s apparent ennui: In a truly stunning piece in early June, Politico´s Carrie Budoff Brown and Jennifer Epstein interviewed many around the president and reported a general feeling that events have left him—well, changed.

Texas Governor Rick Perry toured the U.S.-Mexico border today without President Barack Obama, who ultimately decided to return to Washington, D.C. this afternoon after making a pit stop for BBQ in Austin. Perry´s office says he took a boat ride down the Rio Grande river and a chopper tour of the Rio Grande Valley with the Texas Department of Public Safety this afternoon. Meanwhile, President Obama spoke at a Democratic Party fundraiser, met with someone who wrote him a letter and gave remarks on the economy before stopping by Franklin Barbeque, where he dropped more than $300 on food for

AUSTIN – Never let it be said there is no such thing as a free lunch, at least when it comes to a presidential visit. On Thursday, after President Obama finished a 40-minute speech at the historic Paramount Theater in downtown Austin, his motorcade sped a few blocks away for a quick lunch at Franklin´s, a noted barbeque spot that was packed as always with a lunch crowd. As presidents tend to do, Obama cut to the front of the line so he could order takeout for his official travel party – offering to pay for the two people he

WASHINGTON — Sen. Mark Kirk said today that 429 unaccompanied minors from the Mexican border crisis are in Chicago in the custody of a federal agency, and he wants to know if any of the children have criminal records. Kirk, an Illinois Republican, said the children are in the custody of the Health and Human Services Department. His news release did not say where the children are being housed. In the release, Kirk also said the State Department is “unable to confirm if any of these individuals has a criminal record or background.” He added: “If any of these individuals

President Obama was absolutely swamped the other night, staving off the munchies at a pizza party in the Mile High city, hobnobbing as headliner at numerous Democrat shindigs, collecting big bucks from big donors all day. Whew. Exhausting. Especially exhausting must be trying to change pace and pivot through the fundraising parties, knowing they’re thrown by those much maligned “fat cats” (Obama’s words, not mine). The president conveniently disparages these fat cats in public, but in private their group hugs are a whole lot of cuddlin,’ purrin’ and rolling over for more tummy tickling from the one who feeds them.

Central Texas, especially that sweet spot halfway between Dallas and Austin where small swaths of the legendary old prairies remain, is an earthly paradise. Blowsy live oaks spread their heavy limbs beneath cloud-spattered skies, while creeks and rivers—most prominently the meandering Brazos—ripple alongside gently rolling pastures gilded with waving grasses. These natural glories are precisely what led Laura and George W. Bush to choose the area for their Prairie Chapel Ranch, the retreat they completed in 2001, just after he became the 43rd president of the United States. Occupying some 1,600 acres near the flyspeck town of Crawford, about 25

WESLACO — Gov. Rick Perry received another border security briefing from Department of Public Safety officials here this morning, he tweeted just before 10 a.m. "Informative #bordersecurity briefing this AM in Weslaco. This crisis must be seen to be understood," the post to Twitter read. The hashtag "#SecureTheBorder" followed the two-sentence tweet. A photo of Perry seated next to DPS Director Col. Steve McCraw accompanied the post. Perry met with President Barack Obama in Dallas yesterday to discuss the situation. The president has been criticized for making fundraising visits to Dallas and Austin, but not visiting the border.

As the political war over minors crossing the border continues to escalate, Texas Governor Rick Perry met with President Obama yesterday and demanded that he beef up border patrols and seek changes to federal law that would expedite the removal of arriving minors. For his part, Obama prodded Perry to rally Congressional Republicans to pass the $3.7 billion in funding to expedite removals and provide care the president has asked for. In a good piece, Amie Parnes of the Hill observes that Perry “has seized the spotlight in recent days to become the national face of opposition to President Obama’s

Xunlight Corp., a flexible solar-panel manufacturer that uses technology developed at the University of Toledo and is based on Nebraska Avenue, closed its doors June 30 to “resolve some matters,” CEO John Buckey said. Mr. Buckey declined to elaborate on the cause of the shutdown, but a letter provided to The Blade that appears to have been sent by Mr. Buckey to employees on July 2 said the company is closing and makes no reference to any potential reopening. “Unfortunately, payments that were committed to

(Video) Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday on “Hannity” that President Obama needs to act now to stop the surge in illegal immigrants flooding across his state’s border, calling it “a humanitarian crisis that he has the ability to stop.” The Republican governor spoke out after meeting with Obama in Texas Wednesday afternoon. Both sides called the meeting “constructive” and said they agreed philosophically. However, Perry said he is concerned that Obama did not indicate he will take the immediate action he requested: to use his power as commander-in-chief to send the National Guard to secure the border. “You know,

The Border Crisis Is Obama’s Hurricane
Katrina? Don’t Be Ridiculous!

Posted By: JoniTx- 7/9/2014 10:51:46 PM     Post Reply
Some (including some Democrats) are saying that the crisis on the Southwestern border is President Obama’s Hurricane Katrina. But there are at least two fundamental differences between the illegal immigration fiasco and Katrina. First, the response to Hurricane Katrina was actually the largest and the fastest response to any natural disaster in history, as Popular Mechanics, as I recall, later documented. Second, President Bush didn’t cause the hurricane. The current disaster is entirely attributable to Barack Obama’s willful refusal to enforce the immigration laws, in violation of his oath of office. Is Obama’s subversion of the nation’s laws an impeachable offense?

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, is advocating the impeachment of President Barack Obama. “It’s time to impeach,” she wrote, “and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” I am a pretty fierce critic of the president myself, but let me be among the first to say that Republicans would be insane to follow Ms. Palin’s counsel.
