Obama tucked away
behind Palm Springs gates

Orange County Register [Santa Ana, CA], by Luke Ramseth

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/14/2014 11:10:49 AM

It appears President Barack Obama’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, will not be joining he and first lady Michelle Obama on their swing through Southern California this Father’s Day weekend. Only the presidential couple walked off Air Force One at about 6:30 p.m. Friday at Palm Springs International Airport, as temperatures hovered around 100 degrees. The Obamas greeted dignitaries on the tarmac before being whisked away in a black Suburban in a long line of Secret Service vehicles. At the Palm Springs airport, the couple was greeted by California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer and her husband, Stewart; Rep. Raul Ruiz, D-Palm

Comments:
Will the skinny Marxist be playing golf with 100 degree temperatures? Obama campaigns and parties while the world burns.

No one golfs in 100 degree weather. Not even in Palm Springs. Nope, that is a 5AM kind of idea.

This writer either doesn´t know where they are staying or is out of the press loop. AP´s Nedra Pickler already spilled the beans that they are staying at Decorator Michael Smith´s luxurious mountain top estate. See next article up page for post on this. And video of house before Smith bought and renovated it.

it´s a small thing, i know, but the line should read: malia and sasha will not be joining HIM and the first lady. i read and hear the misuse of pronouns (and all other kinds of bad grammar) from professionals - writers, teachers, announcers (are they professional?). is grammar not taught in school anymore?
apart from that, does this man ever stay home?

i must have missed the para on his meeting with his NSC staff in/re Iraq this a.m. -- or maybe not ---since he never seems briefed on anything anymore. word is he was briefed on what was coming some time ago. how many examples of dereliction of duty are needed before Joe Biden starts to look better than President Incompetama

That first sentence is a bit jarring. Oh, well, product of modern American education system I guess. They say they are giving up on teaching both writing style and cursith. I can see how that will turn out.

But, aside from all that exercise in pointless linguistic criticism, I think this President has to be the most clueless about image. I noticed after his "serious" talk on the burning of Iraq by the modern day horde of insanely murderous Muslims, he and Moochie jaunted off to Helicopter 1 all smiles and laughing---"On to Palm Springs, Baby!" I can imagine what the threatened Iraqi leaders were thinking as they watched his "seriousness" over their people being but5chered to death in the streets.

Putin must have also been watching the "Carefree" American El Presidento skipping his way out of DC during a serious crisis.

"That guy is a funny guy!" He must have said to his Generals overseeing the invasion of Ukraine with their latest Russian tanks.

"I like his frivolity in the face of disaster. Now, go ahead and slaughter as many Ukrainians as you need. That guy Obama does not care about such things."

One has to just take a breath and grit the teeth, doesn´t one?

The smiling daughters seem to have vanished into thin air. Maybe, like the dreamy toddlers from South America who ran off, all on their own to come to our country, the land of free handouts, the first daughters may have seen the writing on the wall for the beleaguered USA and have headed off to greener pastures in some happy foreign socialist country with eight week vacations for all.

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressed confidence that the federal government can successfully deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border but it likely will cost billions of dollars to deal with the ongoing crisis. In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

Ex-New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson joined Greta Van Susteren tonight to open up about her firing and her experience at the Times. Abramson also defended a claim she has made previously that the Obama White House is the “most secretive” she’s ever dealt with. Abramson said she’s “never dealt with an administration where more officials… demand that everything be off the record.” She cited criminal investigations against journalists’ sources, including the current case involving Times reporter James Risen, to make the case of just how secretive the White House is. In fact, she told Van Susteren, “I spoke

Attorney General Eric Holder granted an exclusive interview to ABC´s "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" from London, where he was portrayed by ABC as deeply concerned about the global terrorist threat. What stands out from this very rare session — Holder hasn´t been on Sunday network television in four years — is that Holder pulled out the oldest, lamest card in the Obama political deck: President Barack Obama and he are opposed by people who should be suspected of racism. And darned if he didn´t get away with it again. Pierre Thomas, ABC´s Justice Department correspondent, interviewed Holder and asked him why he

The White House won’t reveal where it is housing thousands of Central American juvenile migrants because their privacy rights trump Americans’ right to know what‘s happening in their neighborhoods, press secretary Josh Earnest declared July 16. “The public does have a right to know what’s happening… [but] at the same time, there are privacy rights that are included in the law that this administration is committed to enforcing and following,” Earnest told Ed Henry, Fox News’ White House correspondent. “We are not surprised in the least to see the Obama administration imitate the smugglers,” William Gheen, founder of Americans for Legal Immigration

President Obama on Wednesday announced new sanctions against Russia for its involvement in Ukraine and other foreign policy moves in response to several international concerns across the Middle East. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges." The president said the new sanctions against Russia -- which hit major Russian banks and

First Lady Michelle Obama told a harrowing story Wednesday of a soldier caught in a “fire fart” during his wartime experience. “There’s this soldier that we met just a month ago,” Obama told the crowd at a Los Angeles event addressing the plight of homeless veterans, “who was caught in a fire fart–fight in Afghanistan.” The soldier returned home to find a bleak environment for veterans of war, according to Michelle’s prepared remarks at the event, which also featured a presentation from Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti. “Just try putting yourselves in their shoes for just a moment,” Michelle said

Newly released testimony latest evidence
Benghazi attacks premeditated

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress. The Times article states, "In the days leading up to the Rose Garden speech, there were discussions in the

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand. Republicans, especially in DC, can always be lured by

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book.
