It’s now or never.
Okay, it’s now or next week, but please go ahead and comment.
President Obama is playing golf today at the famous Congressional Country Club course with aide-de-camp Marvin Nicholson, sportswriter Tony Kornheiser, and Michael Wilbon of ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption.
He like things nice and light on the golf course and this is the perfect group not to bring up Gaza.
Seems like he’s getting tired of the Fort Belvoir and Joint Base Andrews courses and going upscale more often.
It’s outing #26 for the year and #183 for the Obama presidency.
Looks First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters got photographed by this girl in the foreground, who caught them in a selfie.
Michelle was in Chicago Thursday for a DNC fundraiser, and she took her girls afterward to the Beyonce and Jay-Z show.
Want to have some fun? Fine. But this is rank hypocrisy.
Michelle styles herself as someone who cares deeply about kids. But Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z rake in millions peddling overt sexuality and other forms of vile entertainment to children.
Not to mention the $50 million Beyonce is making selling Pepsi to kids, a campaign that will stuff so much sugar into their veins that one might suggest Michelle’s “Let’s Move” initiative include a program for rescuing children from diabetic comas.
Beyonce is one of the pioneers in the move to finish long, slow process of achieving the final putrefaction of American culture. No American first lady should stand with someone like Beyonce. But this one does.
I’ll be appearing this evening on One American News Network’s Rick Amato Show, which airs at 7:00 pm PT and 10:00 pm ET. I’ll be discussing my piece about President Obama’s dangerous, divisive new rhetoric.
OANN is on AT&T U-verse; channels 208 standard definition and 1208 high def; VerizonFiOS at 116 SD and 616 HD; and CenturyLink on 209 SD and 1209 HD.
They have a sprawling new studio in Washington just across from Capitol Hill. Looks like they’re in the TV news network game for real.
A leading Latino lawmaker this morning said he would be “negotiating” at the White House over ways President Obama can take unilateral action on immigration, seeming to indicate that he thinks the president can remove from legal jeopardy up to 5 million of the 11 or 12 million immigrants thought to be here illegally.
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said on MSNBC:
In about an hour, I’m going over to the White House. I’ll be meeting with Jeh Johnson and the chief legal counsel to the president of the United States. We’re going to sit down and we’re gonna negotiate other terms and avenues the president can use in prosecutorial discretion. and I think we can get maybe three or four, even five million people.
It’s not clear what the result of the meeting was.
The briefing has concluded.
