At Dinner Tables, Restless
President Finds Intellectual Escape

New York Times, by Julie Hirschfeld Davis

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/14/2014 6:58:49 PM

WASHINGTON — President Obama had just disembarked from Air Force One and was still on the tarmac in Rome when he turned to his host, John R. Phillips, the American ambassador to Italy, with an unexpected request: How about a dinner party tomorrow night? Over the next 24 hours, the startled Mr. Phillips and his wife, the former Obama aide Linda Douglass, scrambled to gather some of Italy’s intellettuali. (Snip) In a summer when the president is traveling across the country meeting with “ordinary Americans” under highly choreographed conditions, the Rome dinner shows another side of Mr. Obama. As one of

Comments:
Mega barf alert!! Davis has the audacity to write this tripe: "...the dinners reflect a restless president weary of the obligations of the White House and less concerned about the appearance of partying with the rich and celebrated." What pure, unadulterated rubbish. Obama pretends he such an intellectual. What a joke. He´s a Marxist community organizer who perfectly represents the old adage that you can´t make a silken purse out of a sow´s ear. He can´t fool us.

That drug-addled Hawaiian brain never held much of an intellect. And the writer puts on display her own lack of discernment, showcasing instead her membership in the mutual admiration society of the journalists and the presidential sycophants (otherwise known the Pretty People).

NY Times articles like this one, and the one over the weekend saying that "the border crisis is a myth", are such suck-up, fluff pieces to try to put some lipstick on the dreadful situations that we face. (Was that article that promoted Michelle for a cosmetic ad because of her toned arms and glistening skin in the Times also?)

It is time for all of us to boycott the Times and to write to their advertisers complaining about their irresponsible reporting. They should feel the heat for their lies and misreporting.

A writer has been hired to adapt the story of Kermit Gosnell, the doctor who was convicted of murdering live babies out of his Philadelphia abortion clinic, into a Hollywood film. The writer, Andrew Klavan, is a bestselling author whose novel True Crime was previously turned into a Clint Eastwood film.

Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central America who have recently crossed into the United States will cost state and local governments a staggering $761 million dollars this year, a group that favors immigration reduction has calculated. The Federation for American Immigration Reform, which is pushing for reduced legal immigration and stronger border security, made its calculation based on federal government data indicating that more than 37,000 children who are part of the recent border surge have now been placed with families across the United States and are eligible to attend public schools.

"We are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens who have U.S. passports who are fighting in the Middle East with [ISIS] forces. There may be more, we don´t know," Hagel told CNN in an interview. Authorities have been concerned that Americans and citizens of other Western nations could potentially return and launch terror attacks in their home countries.

Yesterday came word, through a former Pentagon official, that President Obama received detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of ISIS via the President’s Daily Brief for at least a year before the group took large swaths of territory beginning in June 2014. The former official told Fox News that the data was strong, and “granular” in detail. He added that a policy maker “could not come away with any other impression [than] this is getting bad.” Yet in January, at least six months after these warnings began, Obama famously proclaimed ISIS “the jayvee.” And in recent weeks, the administration has

A Democratic senator is planning to introduce legislation authorizing U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria, in a bid to ensure President Obama is not waiting on Congress to escalate the military campaign. When Congress returns next week, Sen.

Two former U.S. senators, Trent Lott and John Breaux, have been hired by a state-controlled Russian bank to lobby against U.S. sanctions put in place because of Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine. A lobbying registration form filed Friday shows that Gazprompank GPB hired the firm Squire Patton Boggs to lobby on issues including “banking laws and regulations including applicable sanctions,” a report from the Center for Public Integrity reads. Gazprombank GPB is a subsidiary of Gazprombank, Russia’s third-largest financial institution. It is controlled by the state-controlled energy company Gazprom. In July, the U.S. Treasury Department slapped Gazprombank and several other large Russian companies with

Republicans are launching an investigation into the cozy relationship between the Environmental Protection Agency and an environmental lobbying group that has allegedly played a major role in crafting recent global warming rules and stymieing an Alaska mining project. Louisiana Sen. David Vitter and California Rep. Darrell Issa sent a letter to the EPA and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) asking for records regarding the environmental group’s role in drafting a rule limiting carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, and blocking a permit for the Pebble Mine in Alaska. “It appears that NRDC’s unprecedented access to high-level EPA officials

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera.

In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having
