In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  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?

    1. Caught a glimpse of Barack “hiking”. Shirttail out, hands in pocket, ambling — not hiking — looking at the trees.

      Bizarre that this WH felt it necessary to use the word “hike”.

  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:*&beginDate=&endDate=&publishedBeginDate=20150801&publishedEndDate=&caseNumber=

    1. Holy cow – – if the info on these e-mails don’t sink her campaign, then she can weather anything.
      Impeaching JusticeThomas in 2010 for some alleged sexual misconduct committed before he was approved to sit on the bench.
      What gall, what ..geez.

    2. Also:

      That last one is something else – click on the Twitter pic link in that one to see a screenshot of the email. It’s Sunday, January 3rd at around 6:30 pm. So, the end of the holidays, end of New Year’s weekend, everyone’s about to return to work on Monday, and Queen Shrillary just has to send a state department staffer an email about what she needs to make her life more comfortable in the new year (2010). She has her priorities, you know.

      She seems to be telling her aide to go over menus with her personal chef, and also inquiring as to whether the chef gives her a monthly bill for the food he buys and prepares for her. She also requests that someone buy her skim milk for her tea, and remind her to bring more teacups from home.

      The most ridiculous part is that she actually asked her aide. (a government employee), to let her know what time two TV shows air – “Parks and Recreation” and “The Good Wife”. OMG, can’t she look it up by herself quicker than putting the question in an email?? Such an entitled, out of touch, elitist.

      1. Yea, she’s like the Queen of Heart (the Red Queen) in Alice in Wonderland.

        A few words from the Queen of Hearts:

        “Off with her head!”

        “Now, I give you fair warning, either you or your head must be off, and that in about half no time! Take your choice!”

        “Look up, speak nicely and don’t twiddle your fingers all the time.”

        “Curtsy while you’re thinking what to say, it saves time.”

        “It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”

    3. Thanks for the link, Marcus.
      Just found this one from Sid Blumenthal on Drudge. Sent to HRC in 2010 after Boehner was elected Speaker. I concur 110%!

      “Boehner is despised by the younger, more conservative members of the House Republican Conference,” Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. “They are repelled by his personal behavior.”

      “He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle,” he added.

      According to, “louche” means “dubious, shady, disreputable.”

      1. I caught that one, too. Going through the emails is like wading through miles of “nothing much going on here”, and then you hit a blockbuster like the email you mentioned. There’s lots of stuff here–who is emailing who and what’s being communicated. There’s no way Hillary and her posse will escape this noose.

        1. Marcus, don’t get your hopes up. Teddy left Mary Jo to drown and Bill used and abused many women, in and out of the WH. I don’t believe Hillary will be punished, just like so many other Dems before her.

          1. Hillary’s “put” may well go something like this:

            Hillary: In order to defend myself I will have to release classified information.

            Judge: Well, I can’t allow that.

            Hillary’s Lawyer: Then I moved that we drop the charges because my client can’t defend herself.

            Something like that.

            Snakes. All of them.

          1. Yep. Lots going on as the criminal investigations continue. It’s the Cloward–Piven strategy used to overload the situation, create chaos in the Justice system. Nothing gets done or completed.

  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!

    1. 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.


      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.

      1. 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!

          1. You nailed it, Girly ! I will not forget the pictures of little Barry at the gym and when poor little Barry tried to throw some balls into a net but failed and failed…..By the way, have we ever been informed about his handicap in golf ? I guess it´s classified.

        2. 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?

    1. My fellow readers here at WHD read more updated news than he does. I do not watch the reality programs to begin with. If I did I would make it a point not to watch the episode he appears in.

  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.
