  1. So, he’s taking Monday off for the most part. The rest of the week is pathetically light, even for Obummer:

    Schedule for the Week of June 22, 2015

    On Monday, the President will host an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan at the White House.

    On Tuesday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

    On Wednesday, the President will host a reception at the White House in recognition of LGBT Pride Month.

    On Thursday and Friday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

  2. So, I see from Mark Knoller’s tweets that Obummer and the Choom Gang played golf at Larry Ellison’s (CEO of Oracle) private course, “Porcupine Creek Golf Club” in Rancho Mirage. He does this every time they’re out there for golf weekends, (Presidents Day weekend and Fathers Day weekend, three years in a row now). They always play at Sunnylands once or twice, but they also play at Ellison’s course once during their weekend.

    From Mark Knoller’s Twitter (time stamp is Pacific Time):

    Pres Obama boards AF1 and wheels up from Palm Springs back to DC.

  3. On Wednesday, the President will host a reception at the White House in recognition of LGBT Pride Month.

    I bet the Supremes will issue their ruling on gay marriage before Thursday so they can really celebrate at the party.

    President Obama is set to host a reception at the White House commemorating June as Pride month on June 24, the Washington Blade has learned.

    The White House has hosted an event to observe Pride in each year of the Obama administration. The upcoming reception will mark the seventh such celebration at the White House.

    In years past, LGBT advocates have used the occasion to press Obama on issues affecting the LGBT community. The first reception in 2009 was held amid displeasure over his administration’s efforts in defending the Defense of Marriage Act in court before Obama changed his position in 2011 and stopped defending the law.

    At subsequent receptions, Obama was urged to hasten efforts to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and sign an executive order barring federal contractors from engaging in anti-LGBT job discrimination — both of which he accomplished.

    The upcoming event will happen close to the time the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision on whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry across the country.

  4. Did you know that Obummer declares June “LGBT Pride Month” every year? Gee, and heterosexuals don’t even get a week, do they?

    Obama issues Presidential Proclamation declaring June LGBT Pride Month

    Friday, May 29, 2015

    WASHINGTON — The White House on Friday issued a proclamation by President Barack Obama, declaring June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, saying his administration “is now leading by example, ensuring that our employees and contractors are judged by the quality of their work, not by who they love.”

    “Our journey is not complete until our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law,” Obama declared.

    Read the full proclamation:

    LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2015

    BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    A PROCLAMATION

    From the moment our Nation first came together to declare the fundamental truth that all men are created equal, courageous and dedicated patriots have fought to refine our founding promise and broaden democracy’s reach. Over the course of more than two centuries of striving and sacrifice, our country has expanded civil rights and enshrined equal protections into our Constitution. Through struggle and setback, we see a common trajectory toward a more free and just society. But we are also reminded that we are not truly equal until every person is afforded the same rights and opportunities — that when one of us experiences discrimination, it affects all of us — and that our journey is not complete until our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.

    Across our Nation, tremendous progress has been won by determined individuals who stood up, spoke out, and shared their stories. Earlier this year, because of my landmark Executive Order on LGBT workplace discrimination, protections for Federal contractors went into effect, guarding against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The Federal Government is now leading by example, ensuring that our employees and contractors are judged by the quality of their work, not by who they love. And I will keep calling on the Congress to pass legislation so that all Americans are covered by these protections, no matter where they work.

    In communities throughout the country, barriers that limit the potential of LGBT Americans have been torn down, but too many individuals continue to encounter discrimination and unfair treatment. My Administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors because the overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrates that it can cause substantial harm. We understand the unique challenges faced by sexual and gender minorities — especially transgender and gender non-conforming individuals — and are taking steps to address them. And we recognize that families come in many shapes and sizes. Whether biological, foster, or adoptive, family acceptance is an important protective factor against suicide and harm for LGBTQ youth, and mental health experts have created resources to support family communication and involvement.

    For countless young people, it is not enough to simply say it gets better; we must take action too. We continue to address bullying and harassment in our classrooms, ensuring every student has a nurturing environment in which to learn and grow. Across the Federal Government, we are working every day to unlock the opportunities all LGBT individuals deserve and the resources and care they need. Too many LGBTQ youth face homelessness and too many older individuals struggle to find welcoming and affordable housing; that is why my Administration is striving to ensure they have equal access to safe and supportive housing throughout life. We are updating our National HIV/AIDS Strategy to better address the disproportionate burden HIV has on communities of gay and bisexual men and transgender women. We continue to extend family and spousal benefits to legally married same-sex couples. And because we know LGBT rights are human rights, we are championing protections and support for LGBT persons around the world.

    All people deserve to live with dignity and respect, free from fear and violence, and protected against discrimination, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. During Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, we celebrate the proud legacy LGBT individuals have woven into the fabric of our Nation, we honor those who have fought to perfect our Union, and we continue our work to build a society where every child grows up knowing that their country supports them, is proud of them, and has a place for them exactly as they are.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2015 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-ninth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-ninth.

    Obama has issued the Pride Month proclamation every year since taking office in 2009. Prior his administration, President Bill Clinton was the last president to issue such a proclamation, first doing so in 1999 and then in 2000 before he left office. President George W. Bush never issued a proclamation commemorating LGBT pride.

    Obama will host a reception at the White House on June 24 to commemorate Pride month.

  5. I wish someone would publish the last 500 days of President Bush’s Daily Schedule versus Presdient Obama’s.

    I guess the President has to recover from his weekend of Golf and “Reminiscing” with high school Dope friends. I wonder if the WH physician gave him a medical marijuana card for Narcissim? It seems that he has to go to California every six weeks for a refill.

    He needs to keep his schedule open in case he has to replace 5 Supreme Court Justices by Executive Power if they vote against his well written ACA legislation. Plus, he needs to send in the Feds to break up the Peace and Goodwill occurring in Charleston. I guess President Obama didn’t take Sharptons Muzzle off before he left for Hollywood.

    • I’ve tried finding official schedules of former presidents (dems and repubs) just to see how they “looked”. Maybe I should try their libraries……

  6. How can he keep up with these breakneck schedules?

    btw wt* is iftar?

    I guess it is a muslim something

    is it “let’s wear a headscarf month” yet?

    • According to wiki:

      Iftar (Arabic: إفطار‎ ifṭār ‘breakfast’) is the evening meal when Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. For Sunnis, it is at the time of the call to prayer for the evening prayer; for Shias, it is after the evening prayer.

      Basically, it’s all bullsh*t.

  7. I proclaim I am tired of these “months”

    I am white, I am straight, I am a woman

    wth is my “month”?

    i know I don’t deserve one-I am scared I even asked that question, please disregard sorry!

    i’ll wring my hands and retreat in shame and hope people will overlook my whiteness and let me go on one more day

  8. Notice Obama is breaking his Ramadan fast with a big bash at the house. Sure hope is personal Allah enjoys the show. Nothing beats a big noonday party bash to impress. Prayer rugs provided by Dalton Carpets inc. The only carpets on the market with a sewn in compass and extra forehead padding. Look for them in fine stores. Mostly in Detroit.

  9. If there is any question that he is a Muslim, please note he is not wearing his gold wedding (?) band during Ramadan. It disappears every year at this time.
