  1. Hike. uh huh. To a glacier, no less.
    Will he ‘hike’ up to the glacier, onto the glacier, or is he planning to ‘hike’ until he can see it?

    FOI(for Obama’s info), Phoenix weather is changing; the weather cutie promises that our daytime temps will drop to double digits by Thursday. Should we be alarmed?

  2. OT, but here’s the State Department website with the latest Hillary email release. I’ve been surfing through them, reading several to date. Generally, they are what you’d expect…State Department stuff, setting up for phone calls and meetings, some “how do we handle this” queries, etc. I’ve found several that are completely redacted, not a single word on the page. It’s interesting to see that Sandy Berger was someone she emailed, and that Huma is all over the place–as I suppose we could expect given her job. Anyway, here they are:

  3. Who is is fooling? The purpose of this trip appears to be The Survivor style reality TV show he is filming. Putin’s ‘manliness’ must be getting under his skin. What a putz!

    Have I mentioned lately that he is insane? Well, it’s true!

    • I think you nailed it, Girly1. Obummer knows all the “cool” “celebs” are doing that show, so he has to do it too. It’s the main reason for the trip and they built an entire three day agenda around it.

      More about the show and Barry’s appearance on it:

      President Obama is about to get a little wild.

      Obama will appear on a special episode of the NBC outdoor adventure show Running Wild with Bear Grylls, the network announced Monday in a news release.

      The president and the host will be trekking through the Alaskan wilderness in an effort to highlight the effects of climate change in that area. The episode, to be taped, will air on NBC later this year.

      (snip)

      Now in its second season, Running Wild follows wilderness and survival expert Grylls as he takes celebrities – who have included Kate Winslet, Kate Hudson, Zac Efron and Channing Tatum – on journeys through the wilderness and teaches them survival skills (such as the aforementioned drinking of one’s own urine).

      Grylls is a survival expert and former member of the British Special Forces, who formerly hosted the Discovery Channel show Man vs. Wild. The show is known for getting celebrities to do crazy stunts in wild locations, and recently featured Kate Hudson eating ants and Michelle Rodriguez eating a mouse soaked in her own urine.

      • This must be costing us a bloody fortune!!! For what? A skinny little sissy who cried when he was accidentally slammed in a basketball game with friends and sustained 2 stitches on his lip??? A little sissy who can’t throw a baseball and wears Mom jeans? A little dandy who sits in a chair like a girl? He’s afraid of his own shadow!!!

          He’s probably using his body man, Reggie, as a stand-in!

        • You crack me up, Girly1. I love your descriptions of Barry. I almost forgot about that little basketball accident, poor baby.

          This whole TV appearance is a total joke. The Wimp-in-Chief will not even do anything remotely manly, let alone dangerous. It’s just a photo op and yet another way to pop up on people’s televisions every time they turn it on. You simply cannot escape Barry and Mooch. This “special” episode is supposed to air later this year. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s scheduled to air over Thanksgiving weekend or around Christmas for maximum family viewing pleasure. Yuck.

  4. So, there’s talk that Barry might be at Columbia post-presidency?

    From Mark Knoller’s Twitter – he’s quoting Jennifer Friedman, a WH Deputy Press secretary:

    Mark Knoller ‏@markknoller
    From @JFriedman44 at WH: nothing yet finalized between Pres Obama and Columbia University for a post-presidency teaching arrangement.
    6:59 PM – 31 Aug 2015

    Mark Knoller ‏@markknoller
    At the same time, @JFriedman44 says @POTUS “has long talked about his respect for Columbia…and his desire to continue working with them.”
    7:01 PM – 31 Aug 2015

  5. What head of state before Barry has ever appeared on television so much, on vapid talk shows and ridiculous “reality” programs? Who else, in the history of the United States, has ever lowered himself by so completely disrespecting his position and the office he holds?

  6. John Kasich has come out with a statement that Obama has once again bypassed congress on renaming the mountain.
    He said that this is a blatant overstep of his authority.
    I think it is high time that congress begins to overrule his decisions.

  7. President Denali (the high one) going on a hike is like the wookie (Mooch) eating healthy. We should put him on an island ‘naked and alone’ see how that works out.
