Chinese Dictator to Help Defray Costs of Obama Political Travel

by Keith Koffler on May 31, 2013, 6:42 pm

Gee, thanks Xi.

(It’s pronounced ZHEE, like in the J in Jacques Cousteau.).

President Obama will travel late next week to San Jose, California, and Los Angeles for Democratic fundraisers.

Yes, it’s true, he’s already doing two fundraisers twice a week, and the midterm elections are a good 18 months away. It’s good there aren’t any problems with the economy and that Al Qaeda has agreed to a ceasefire.

I'm from the Chinese government and I'm here to help. I’m from the Chinese government and I’m here to help.

But guess who’s showing up Friday in Los Angeles to make this an “official” trip? It’s President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China! As you probably know, adding such an “official” event to political travel helps presidents bill taxpayers for their trips instead of political parties.

Well thank you comrade!

The two presidents will be meeting in Palm Springs at Sunnylands, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Estate.

Well, reporters seemed a little suspicious at Wednesday’s White House briefing, wondering about the highly unusual step of not having the newly installed president of China over to the White House.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was ready with the answer:

“California is closer to Asia.”

Yeah, that’s what he said.

Because as everyone knows, when Chinese leaders come to the United States, they generally fly into Los Angeles and then travel by boat to Washington, floating down the West Coast and then through the Panama Canal before steaming into the Caribbean and then up the East Coast.

It can take weeks, so Obama has kindly decided to meet the Chinese president half way. Obama will then remain overnight Friday in Palm Springs which, if I’m not mistaken, will force him to play around of golf in the California sunshine.

You Xi what’s going on here?

Evidently that was a precursor of sorts for an upcoming Tennessee event (“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society”) that will feature the region’s top DOJ official, who serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and an FBI representative. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles, according to a local newspaper report. The June 4 powwow is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee.

The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

SNIP

The DOJ political appointee adds in the article that the upcoming presentation will also focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis on the fact that the religion is no different from others, even though some in the faith have committed terrorist acts, Christians have done the same. As an example he offers that the worst terrorist attack in the U.S. prior to 9/11 was committed by American Christians in Oklahoma City. He also mentioned the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting last year in which another Christian, an American white supremacist, fatally shot six people and wounded four others.

Uh, Killian? McVee was NOT a Christian.

Frightening. The One’s minions twist a law like a pretzel if it can serve them and ignore any laws that hamper them.

They are the ultimate game players.

They really don’t care — our government is a game for them to play to their advantage. No love of country, no respect for the past, it’s a brand new gameboard and they are the players with the advantage because they are free of values and can play to win.

I don’t get what Killian hopes to accomplish, other than making the Muslims feel good. East Tennesseeans won’t put up with this nonsense.

Thanks for the laugh.

No, the President will probably NOT play golf in PalmSprings next week. PalmSprings, CA, has the same weather as Phoenix and next week the highs will be in the 105-108 degrees during the day.
It’s miserable in PalmSprings during the summer. The President isn’t doing Mr Xi any favors with this meeting place.

If you’ve never been, PalmSprings was built right in the middle of a desert (@50 miles east of LA), south of I-40, the major truck route into Los Angeles .
Yes, they now have trees and grass, but it’s still desert.
Lots of high end real estate for the rich, and low-rent lodgings for the peons who clean the elites homes, tend their landscapes, and generally do everything the elites don’t want to do.
There’s a casino there, too.

You’re not, but Obama intends to keep golfing as if none of that had happened. The man has so little compunction I’m beginning to wonder if he’s not an honest-to-God, throw him in a rubber room sociopath, and not merely some garden-variety narcissist.

So next week Dictator Obama is jetting off on his royal coach, Air Head One, to meet the Chinese Dictator in California. This truly is an historic first for America. Two Dictators meeting on American soil! What is not being reported is that Dictator Obama is meeting his bro Dictator from China in California because he is going to sign California over to the Chinese, so it really is official business. Another fact not being reported is that he is selling seats on Air Force One at extremely high prices to the rich so they can escape California before the Chinese takeover and he can claim all that cold hard cash as “campaign contributions”.
Normally I would be incensed over his traitorous act of giving California to the Communist Chinese but since California is firmly in the grip of the Democrat Party Communists anyway and is a lost cause, I say good riddance and it will quite easily slip into its new role as a province of the People’s Republic of Communist China. I doubt the useful idiots inhabiting California will notice any change at all.
Next up for our fanatically hard working Dictator Obama: Ceding the States of New York, New Jersey and Michigan to the Saudis who are funding all of the Sunni Terrorists including our mortal enemies Al Qaeda.

The perks of the elitist have no bounds especially when provided by the taxpayer. Margaret Thatcher said socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money. She forgot that the U.S. simply prints what it needs to keep the political class and their family, friends, supporters and donors awash in luxury, warmth, and comfort.

Medical prescription enhancement pills and supplements have zero effects and

The more you push yourself too far, the less motivated you will be to continue with your program,
and the more you put your life in danger. If you suffer from erection problems and take the 50mg dose of sildenafil
30-60 minutes before sex, you are likely to get the kind
of erectile hardness you are looking for. Physical obstacles like erection problems are being taken care
of by prescription medicines like Viagra sildenafil.
