    1. Yep, the “new normal” in America:

      A POTUS who can’t be bothered with a PDF, a POTUS who rarely begins his day before 10 am, transgenders are “celebrated”, illegal alien transgenders are invited to the White House, and “gay marriage” is the “law of the land”.

      Did someone say “fundamental transformation”?

      Mission complete.

      R.I.P. America.

  1. No State dinner? Two yrs. ago, Rousseff cancelled the State Dinner that was being planned for her visit after she learned that Obama was spying on her persona emails.

    Seems the lady is also being accused of the worst corruption/graft re Petrobras. Protestors are demanding impeachment.
    Wonder where Obama figures in all the corruption in Brazil….

    1. All is well now…Obummer took her on a tour of the MLK memorial today.

      They also had dinner tonight, but no state dinner for her:

      WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff will aim to show they have smoothed over tensions sparked by a spying scandal, as they open two days of talks at the White House Monday.

      The meetings come nearly two years after Rousseff canceled a rare state visit to Washington following revelations that Brazil was a target of American spy programs. The disclosures by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden deeply strained relations between the two hemispheric powers.

      Rather than rehash the spying controversy, officials from both countries say the leaders want to delve into talks on trade, investment and climate change.

      “They are putting behind the Edward Snowden affair,” said Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue, a Washington think tank. “The meeting is to create good atmosphere, a good mood, establish communication and get the relationship back on solid footing.”

      Upon Rousseff’s arrival at the White House, Obama took her on a tour to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Obama described the “Stone of Hope” into which King’s statue is carved and pointed out some of King’s famous quotes along the memorial wall.

      The leaders reunited Monday evening over a dinner of grilled lamb, spinach salad and coconut banana cake, the White House said. They were to hold more formal talks and a joint news conference on Tuesday.

  2. OT.
    John Kasich has said that he disagrees with the Supreme Court’s decision on the gay marriage issue, but now it is the law of the land so we have to abide by it.

    Hear that ?
    That is the definition of a RINO with NO SPINE !

    Kasich is a big NO !

          1. Hi Robin. No Parkway or Turnpike for me. It’s Route 80 up here in Morris County, right near Christie. He started out as a member of our county board of freeholders back in the early to mid 90’s.

    1. Not surprisingly, I disagree. I predict most of the Reps will declare this the law of the land–because it IS–and move on, many gratefully. So you are for Huckabee now or Cruz–the bitter enders?

  3. As far as the rest of the week, Obummer – as usual – is turning the Independence Day holiday into a full five days off:

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

    On Saturday, the President and the First Lady will celebrate the Fourth of July by hosting military heroes and their families for an Independence Day celebration with a barbeque, concert and a view of fireworks on the South Lawn. Staff and their families from throughout the Administration will also attend this event for the concert and fireworks viewing.

      1. Yep, I posted about that yesterday in the Christie thread.

        We all saw this coming when they created this “Let Girls Learn” B.S. initiative for Moochelle back in January. It was clearly just a scheme to allow Moochelle as much international travel as possible in their last two years. “Let’s Move” and “Joining Forces” have enabled her to fly all over the country these last several years for fundraising, campaigning, and vacations, while billing it to the taxpayers. Now she has the “Let Girls Learn” scam so she and her kids, (and her mother, and niece and nephew, and probably friends and others), can take luxury vacations on spring break and in the summer:

        First lady: More foreign travel to promote girls’ education

        WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama says she’ll do more foreign travel to promote education for girls in developing countries.

        The first lady announced a new program earlier this year to help adolescent girls improve their lives by attending and staying in school.

        She since has traveled to Japan, Cambodia and London to promote the initiative.

        Mrs. Obama says the U.S. will continue to urge developed countries to join the effort. And when they join, she says “I’m going to hop on a plane and join them” to highlight the work.

        The first lady says she’ll also visit developing countries to show how the program benefits girls and their communities.

        She spoke Monday at an awards luncheon sponsored by the women’s magazine More.
