  1. Doing nothing all day until an hour meeting at 3:30 in the afternoon? What a schedule.

    Poor Barry’s “working” so hard, but don’t worry… It’s almost Presidents’ Day weekend, which brings the annual Palm Springs golf weekend with the Choom Gang, (and Moochelle’s girls’ ski weekend in Aspen). As usual, there will be some fundraisers in Northern CA and LA before the weekend. This time, though, he gets to extend his CA trip into next week with a conveniently scheduled Asian Summit at Sunnylands set for next Monday and Tuesday.

    Oh, and check out the total B.S. the Narcissist-in-Chief is doing on Wednesday on his way out to CA. Give me a break:

    Schedule for the Week of February 8, 2016

    On Monday, the President will host President Sergio Mattarella of Italy at the White House. Italy is a valued NATO Ally and a close partner on a broad range of global challenges. During their meeting, the leaders will discuss our shared efforts to counter ISIL and the global refugee crisis. They will also exchange views on economic developments in Europe, the importance of concluding the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and other issues of mutual interest.

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

    On Wednesday, nine years after he announced his candidacy for president, the President will return to the place where his political career began by traveling to Springfield, Illinois. Now in the final year of his second term, the President looks forward to addressing the Illinois General Assembly about what we can do, together, to build a better politics – one that reflects our better selves. In the evening, the President will travel to the San Jose, California area, where he will remain overnight.

    On Thursday, the President will attend a DSCC event and a DNC event. Later in the day, the President will travel to the Los Angeles area to tape an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and attend DNC events and will remain overnight.

    On Friday, the President will travel to the Palm Springs, CA area, where he will remain overnight. On Monday, February 15th and Tuesday, February 16th, the President will host a summit with leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations at Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage, CA to continue important conversations about the Asia-Pacific region. Following the conclusion of the summit, the President will return to Washington, D.C.


      President Obama spends his Christmas holidays in an oceanfront rental house on the windward side of Oahu. But Hawaii has never really staked a claim to being the home of the western White House. That status increasingly belongs to Sunnylands, the lush estate in Rancho Mirage, Calif., where Mr. Obama plans to welcome leaders from 10 Southeast Asian nations for a summit meeting next Monday.

      Mr. Obama has become a loyal visitor to that 200-acre oasis of olive trees and artificial lakes near Palm Springs. He has used the estate, which was built in 1966 by the publisher Walter H. Annenberg, to confer with V.I.P.s like President Xi Jinping of China and King Abdullah II of Jordan. But its real appeal for this warm-weather president is as a place to unwind with old friends, who join him for getaway weekends to play golf.

      On this visit, his sixth, he will arrive three days in advance to get in a few rounds before the diplomacy begins.


      Even some of Mr. Obama’s work-related visits have seemed an elaborate excuse to hit the links. In February 2014, he and King Abdullah were both in Washington for the week before they met at Sunnylands. The king had 15 meetings in the capital, including breakfast with Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. He then flew to California for dinner with Mr. Obama, after which he left for Jordan.

      After seeing off King Abdullah, Mr. Obama linked up with three of his childhood friends from Honolulu, Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Mike Ramos, for a golf weekend. In addition to Sunnylands, they played at Porcupine Creek, a 19-hole course at a nearby estate owned by Larry Ellison, the billionaire founder of Oracle.

      When Michelle Obama accompanied her husband on one of his visits in 2014, it prompted rumors that they were looking to buy a place in Rancho Mirage after they left the White House. They stayed in a house owned by Michael Smith, an interior designer who redecorated the residential quarters of the White House, and James Costos, a former HBO executive whom Mr. Obama named ambassador to Spain.

      Most of the president’s visits have been solo, however, and Mrs. Obama is not expected to join him this time, a senior official said, even though Valentine’s Day falls on Sunday.


    • Due to Obummer’s weekend golf visit and the Southeast Asian Leaders Summit, Sunnylands is closed for eleven days this week and next week, which means tours have been cancelled and refunds issued:

      Also, protests are planned and security will be a huge operation out in the Coachella Valley:

      More than 1,000 protesters are expected for the upcoming diplomatic summit meeting between President Barack Obama and Southeast Asian world leaders at Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage in one week.

      Protests have been planned over Obama’s aggressive deportation policy, the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and the dreadful human rights records of some of the visiting nations, according to protest organizers, who estimated how many people will show up. The largest confirmed demonstrations will oppose the Cambodian and Vietnamese governments, but authoritarian leaders from other nations will likely be met with opposition also. Protester groups said they will stand united against the oppression and corruption that is rampant throughout the governments of Southeast Asia.


      Obama has invited Sen and other foreign leaders for a special gathering of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, which includes the countries of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. An agenda for the summit has not been released.

      Presidential visits have become a routine occurrence in the Coachella Valley in recent years, but the US-ASEAN summit will have more moving parts – and more controversial people – than any previous visit. In addition to Obama, the valley will host officials from 10 other nations, each with their own entourages. A horde of protesters and a gaggle of journalists will never be far behind.

      The end result, considered as a whole, will be one of the most logistically complex diplomatic gathering operations in the history of the Coachella Valley. Even if Obama decides to spend his nights at Sunnylands, the visiting diplomats are most likely going to stay in nearby hotels, requiring regular motorcades in and out of the Annenburg estate. One local hotel, the Double Tree in Cathedral City, has confirmed it will have increased security for a “large government group” related to the Obama visit, but declined to disclose any other information.

      Security for the event will be led by the Secret Service, with assistance from the FBI, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, the California Highway Patrol and local police departments. Cooperation between these agencies has been well practiced in prior Obama visits, plus past visits by Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush.


        • Obama has deported more people than any other president in history, and is getting close to more than all of them combined. Catch and release? Hilarious. Just keep drinking that Fox so-called News Kool-Aid, if it makes you feel better.

  2. Looks like he is lining up the Democrat Hit Squad — just don’t know if the target is Hillary or once again the America people via some pen and paper end run around the constitution and the laws of the land.

    • The more I think about it …. Obama calls off the FBI dogs for Hillary, she steps down for health reasons and keeps her mouth shut on Obama; somehow the Demokrat Socialists fix it so Biden can step in and drag Fauxcohauntus with him, thus telling Sanders (he had a meet with Hussein last week) how invaluable his service in exposing the true value of Socialism to the American people and clearing the path. Now dirty old man who sold out his country and the commie princess will take it from here.

      • She’ll never step down. By her saying the other day that she’s “100 percent” certain she’ll be found of no wrongdoing, that tells me the fix is in. I never thought she would actually be indicted, but now I believe there will never even be a recommendation for indictment by the FBI…it’s all going to magically disappear.

      • I think you’ve nailed it. It’s a sorta mutual blackmail deal between Clinton and Obama. Imagine, two Alinskyites, battling each other for, what, legacy? Power? Reputation? Two creepier, less trustworthy and pretentious boobs would be impossible to find.

  4. Read a sentence by Eric Hoffer (The True Believer, etc) that perfectly describes the insanity in the White House and the tactic and strategy Obama has used routinely in the White House since he landed there.

    “And it is perhaps true that those who want to create a state of mind receptive to fantastic and manifestly absurd tenets should preach hope and also create a feeling of insecurity.” Hope and change, anyone?

    For the young-uns, and those who might wonder what Eric Hoffer, the writer, the man, was like in person, here’s a clip of an interview (with Eric Sevareid) done some years ago. Hoffer was clearly a guy you’d want to have a beer with. No doubt.

    Quick bio: Lost his parents at an early age. Was blind (from an accident) from about the age of 8 to 15. Mysteriously regained his eyesight and read everything he could because he feared he would lost his sight again, though he never did. Lived on Skid Row in San Francisco for 10 years. Migrant worker and gold miner for another 10 years. Finally got a steady job as a longshoreman for the rest of his life. Clearly a genius, tough dude, took no prisoners. You can see that in the video. Enjoy.

  5. Wasn’t that Hillary Clinton underneath the wheels of the bus being driven by Joe Biden?
    Not to mix metaphors, but I think the hammer’s coming down…

      • That is their choice to change their mind, however I would like them to explain acting like blind sheep so far in regard to her actions and her not taking any action, like Benghazi.

    Since we all know (per popularity of “The Bern” and Trump) that Americans are fed-up with the lavish lifestyles of the tippy-top of our nation, WHY does our POTUS continue to spend in such crazy ways — for example, why must he stay at Rancho Mirage (where he has been, with his extensive ‘team’) when he could save taxpayers millions by simply staying down the road at 7 Palms for free? He takes his own cars so it’d be easy for him to go golf at the pricy Palm Springs courses… but WHY does he soak us taxpayers every weekend?! (I’ve begun to hate him ..)
