  1. I thought this was a joke when I first saw it. He cancelled his campaign event with Shrillary in Wisconsin and now he’s meeting with the Dalai Lama? Interesting:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans to meet with the Dalai Lama at the White House on Wednesday.

    Obama had been scheduled to travel to Wisconsin to appear at a campaign event with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. But the event was postponed after Sunday’s shooting at an Orlando, Florida, nightclub that left 50 people dead, including the gunman.

    That created a hole in Obama’s schedule, and the White House filled it with the Tibetan spiritual leader.

    China accuses the Dalai Lama of pushing for Tibetan independence.

    The White House has barred news media coverage of the meeting, which is likely to offend China.

    The meeting will be held in the Map Room instead of the Oval Office, which is reserved for visiting heads of state.

    • Is it against the law for a sitting American president to inject his influence into elections in other countries, like Barry did in Israel and Canada?

      • Exactly. I remember clearly that about a week after Obama claimed he never interferes with election or the political processes of a foreign country he did exactly that with Netanyahu’s re-election bid. And we remember most recently how he’s been mouthing off about England’s upcoming vote to stay or remain in the EU.

  2. When visiting Europe, Dalai Lama has many times said that he opposes mass immigration in Europe. A temporary stay, yes, but refugees should return to their countries to rebuild them . He has said that the problem is in the MidEast and should be solved there.
    I hope he will talk this sensible to Obama too. I mean, where will the sanctuaries be for everything the Westerners have achieved if invaded by this medieval “religion” ? Dalai Lama probably thinks about what happened in Tibet.

  3. “Dalai Lama probably thinks about what happened in Tibet.”

    Yes. The Communist Chinese have been trying to violently destroy traditional Tibetan religion and culture for generations, as you know. One would like to think that Obama would be offering some sort of aid or assistance to the plight of Tibetans to the Dalai Lama. We know that won’t happen. More likely, Obama will ask the Dalai Lama if there are any cool golf courses in Tibet.

  4. Did Dictator Imam Obama make the Dalai Lama go through a background check before the meeting? Can’t be too careful you know.

  5. Wanna bet there will be a joint ‘presser’ this morning so that Obama can announce that he will be the ‘First American POTUS to visit Tibet’?

    He has been searching for ‘Shangri- la’ his entire life, lol.
