  1. Obummer has an extremely light schedule this week. Of course, he has the weekly “honoring” of a sports team. But, there’s no scheduled plane trips on the schedule so far. Looking at the very light schedule for Tuesday and Wednesday I bet he’ll be flying off to some fundraiser(s) on Tuesday.

    Also, checkout what the WH says about this “Young Southeast Asian Leaders” event tomorrow:

    Schedule for the Week of June 1, 2015

    On Monday, President Obama will host Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands for a meeting in the Oval Office. Their visit reinforces the strong and enduring ties between the United States and the Netherlands that reach back more than 400 years.

    In the afternoon, the President will host a discussion at the White House with a group of 75 young Southeast Asian Leaders on themes of civic engagement, environment and natural resources management and entrepreneurship. The group is the first cohort from the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) Fellows Program. The fellows, ages 18-35 years old, hail from all 10 ASEAN countries and have just completed their five week fellowship in the United States to enhance their practical expertise, leadership skills, and professional contacts to address challenges and create new opportunities in their home communities and countries.

    On Tuesday, the President will award the Medal of Honor to Army Sergeant William Shemin and Army Private Henry Johnson for conspicuous gallantry during World War I.

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

    On Thursday, the President will welcome the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants to the White House to honor the team and their 2014 World Series victory. The President will also recognize the efforts the Giants make to give back to their community as part of their visit, continuing the tradition begun by President Obama of honoring sports teams for their efforts on and off the field.

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

    • Also, I suppose he will be attending Beau Biden’s funeral this week (no announcements have been made as far as the funeral plans).

      The Obama’s paid their respects to the Biden family today, and they also cancelled the Ford’s Theatre reception that had been scheduled for 4:30 this afternoon:

      The president and first lady Michelle Obama paid a condolence call on the Biden family Sunday afternoon at the vice presidential residence in northwest Washington.


      Funeral arrangements are pending.


      Out of respect for the Biden family, the president canceled a White House reception planned for Sunday in honor of Ford’s Theatre.

      • No disrespect to the Biden family for their terrible loss .

        But at least Obama had the decency to cancel WH events and make a condolence call instead of rushing off to the golf course like he did when James Foley was beheaded.

    • Hmm,

      “The strong and enduring ties between the United States and the Netherlands that reach back more than 400 years”. Let me get out my abacus. Yep, that would make the beginning of the “relationship” back in 1615. If I’m not, like, TOTALLY mistaken, there WAS no USofA then!!

      • However, I DO like the fact that we have a friend in Queen MAXIMA!! The only sovereign named after a Nissan!! (In truth I’m sure she’s very nice. Most Dutch are). Little known fact: whenever the French Army surrenders, the Dutch always come around and pick up all the white flags and stitch them together to make sails for their wind mills. No really!!

        • A.J, the queen Maxima is a girl from Argentina who happened to meet this Dutch prince guy , married and became Queen. All the people who marry into the royal houses these days are ordinary people, the girls and boys next door, many of them are hardly educated. They just like a glamorous life. I would like to get rid of all these “royal” parasites who belong to another era, I am a republican, but since they are considered good for tourism and PR , well, we have to keep paying for them.

      • A.J, I believe the Dutch was early on in North America.They were adventurous, great tradesmen in those days. Dutch Peter Stuyvesant bought a piece of land , quite cheap, and called it New Amsterdam. He should have kept it. Some Brit later on thought that the name New York somehow sounded better. Many old families have Dutch names, Roosevelt for example.
        I remember when we went house-shopping in Massachussetts, we often saw houses in a very nice style called “Dutch Colonial”.

    • I have read and REread the bit about the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative Fellows and I am left with my jaw hanging while I mutter “wha?”. Another blow to international terrorism!! Or not!

  2. Hosts a discussion with Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative Fellows. That should go a LONG way toward combating IS/ISIS/ISIL!! Forward thinking at it’s best!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Hosts the King and Queen of the Netherlands!! Now THIS is important. In case of emergency, HOLLAND has our back!! But, maybe a REAL King and Queen can teach our King&Queen of crassness some manners! Hey, I have a dream!!

  4. Rand Paul fought and won. The NSA surveillance is at least postponed for a while. I really admire this young senator. I believe he is the future. He has an appeal to young people. My son, and his circle of friends, many Americans and Brits among them, are only interested in Rand Paul and his ideas. They think that he is the only non-corrupt among them. Well, I guess they influence me as well.

    • Thanks for the clip.
      Only 5 or 29 sections are about traditional trade. Covers essentially every aspect of modern economy.
      The others are about regulating the internet, and what information internet service providers have to collect, they have to hand it over to companies under certain circumstances,
      1. The regulation of labor conditions.,
      2. Regulating the way you can favor local industry.,
      3. Regulating the hospital, health care system.,
      4. Privatization of hospitals, so essentially every aspect of a modern economy, even
      5. Banking services in the TPP.

  5. Here’s a pic of the Royal family of the Netherlands, since we’re talking about them. Just for info. Look like a nice enough family.,_Maxima_and_their_daughters_2013.jpg

    Obama and Michelle probably want to get tips from them on how to live like royalty, how to better manage the servants, where to buy the best royal crowns, how to master the “I am your master and don’t you forget it” look. And, of course, how to do the royal hand wave to the masses. And being the Netherlands, where to get the best weed.

  6. You peeps don’t get it. Meeting seems innocent but here is the rest of the story:
    Bilderberg group (look it up)The original conference was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, from 29 to 31 May 1954
    Led by the king of the Netherlands!
    2015 meeting 63rd Bilderberg confab, August 2015, at which prominent political, financial and business figures will gather, is to be once again held in Europe. The exact location is to be the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol, a remote “five-star hotel conference centre” in the Austrian mountains.
    Bilderberg meeting agenda and results are a closely guarded secret.

  7. The meeting with the King and Queen is most likely a planning meeting for the upcoming Bilderberg meeting.
    Or maybe O and his radical gov are not doing something right and the king is here to fix it.
    Or a planning meeting to see who the real power in the world are going to serve up as our new President.
    Lots going on that we can only guess about.
    Always a news black out and the meetings are highly protected by police and military. All that attend are sworn to not talk about the agenda which is never released.
    62 years old and few even know about these meetings.
    Rockefeller and Bill Gates attended – who know they hate America!

    • Thank you, vonEbb, very interesting. I recognized many names there.But this Carl Bildt fellow is no longer our minister for Foreign affairs and I am so very thankful for that. Can´t stand him, he has been a Bilderberger for years. I just wonder what nasty plots they are up to this time, this shady gang.
