      Typical WHPC stupid question – wonderful answer

          I am very confused by the time – haven’t seen anything live – despite it probably suits my time – sigh

          Do think it’s time he left the WHPC at home – the world can do without their RWNJ questions

            I’m sitting here trying to convert the rest of his schedule today in to EDT time, and I’m totally running out of fingers. My first calculation put this evening’s state dinner as happening yesterday.

      so the murkan msm klowns are showing off their kkklowns on the international level? nice.

      • July 27, 2015 at 7:46 am

        Their usual ignorance on display. I haven’t seen the start of the presser yet, but I assume they didn’t show much interest in Africa. Morning Mister!

          I just wish the kenyan would unload on them calling their questions stupid and move on to other reporters.

          Morning Missy.

        The depth of the stupidity and self absorption of the WHPC never fails to disappoint. They have no shame about appearing as vacuous dunces on an international stage because they’re incapable of seeing beyond themselves. They think they’re hotshots who can say and do anything because they’re paid a lot of money by their corporate bosses.

          It never surprises either jackie – started day 1 to assist the GOP make sure PBO was a 1 term President. What an abject failure of the media.

      THIS IS IT…RIGHT HERE………………….TRUMP IS A MIRROR OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY….PBO HAS BEEN TREATED WORSE THAN A TRASH PICK UP IN THIS COUNTRY…WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND AND WE REAP WHAT WE SOW. PERSONALLY…I WISH WE COULD MOVE THE WHITEHOUSE TO KENYA AND ETHIOPIA…WHERE IT IS QUITE APPARENT THAT MOST OF THE ADULTS LIVE…THEY KNOW HOW TO TREAT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. I AM SICKENED BY OUR ACTONS IN AMERICA!…THEN AGAIN…ITS FOUNDATION HAS BEEN OFF BALANCE SINCE THE BEGINNING!

    • July 27, 2015 at 7:55 am

      Yes, that is so true Mr. President. Not a dam one of these so call Republicans who are running for President, stood up and said to Donald Trump and any other of those birthers out there, you need to put this nonsense to rest because Barack H. Obama is an American, he was born in this country.

    • July 27, 2015 at 9:23 am

      TELL IT, MR. PRESIDENT.

  6. July 27, 2015 at 7:41 am

    POTUS comments about what Huckabee said was right on. Good for you Mr. President. I hope that reporter from Fox got every word he said. I hope all the media did.

    • July 27, 2015 at 7:47 am

      I have never heard this President attack any Republican personal, he have disagreed with them and said so, but none of it has never been personal. Like Marco Rubio saying that President Obama had no class.

      Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, Sue. Hope your day gets better. People like Huckabee take too much oxygen out of the air. They’re not worth it.

    Thanks TOD for keeping me a tad calm. The POTUS’ presser was fantastic. Thanks Chips.

      “I mean, we’ve had a sitting senator call John Kerry Pontius Pilate. We had a sitting senator who also happens to be running for president suggesting that I’m the leading state sponsor of terrorism. These are leaders in the Republican party.”

      “Part of what, historically, has made America great is particularly when it comes to foreign policy, there’s been a recognition that these issues are too serious, that issues of war and peace are of such grave concern and consequence that we don’t play fast and loose that way,” he concluded.

      perfect.

        And will this ever get back to the people of the US? I hope he saves these statements to mention in every speech he gives in support of the dem nominee – whoever that may be – cause the WHPC sure isn’t going to repeat anything he says. I will always blame the press more than the GOP for the horror of RW US politics. They shut down any attempt to call out GWB for 5 long years.

    Inspiring Doc ‘The Curators of Dixon School’ Screening at Black Cinema House in Chicago Sunday July 26

    Shadow and Act
    By Sergio | Shadow and Act

    July 24, 2015 at 9:02PM

    The Dixon Elementary public school located on Chicago’s South Side is without question one of the most unique public schools in the country. The teachers and administrators who run the school intended it to be not only a place of learning, but also a place of inspiration.

    As a result, the school has surrounded the hallways and the outside property with over 200 beautiful and colorful works of art, and priceless sculptures by some of the foremost African-American artists in the country, such as Dayo Laoye, Carolyn Elaine, Peter Gray and Faheem Majeed.

    And as you can imagine, there were battles with the Chicago Public Schools bureaucracy who didn’t take kindly to having teachers inspiring young black impressionable minds in a positive way.

    But it had to be done to encourage students to interact with, and respect beautiful works of African-American art, but also to “remind students and visitors that the African-American experience is a complex one and helps students connect with their history, their community and each other”.

    Filmmaker, journalist and playwright Pamela Sherrod Anderson spent over two years making her documentary feature film, “The Curators of Dixson School,” about the school and its mission. In the past three years the film has traveled around the country on the film festival circuit.

      I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dixon Elementary as well as the artist you mentioned. It is a amazing place. I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Ms Anderson. Wonderful woman. It always made me feel so proud to see what was going on at that school and then it would make me so mad that this part of Chicago never gets covered by the news.

      Not sure what The Gambia and Liberia 1943 short visit is about. I was born in ’46 and that would be before I was born. I am fifteen years older than PBO. The chart infers it is Obama’s trips to Africa unless they mean all past Presidents which is not clearly labeled.

      And my point is yet again seen to be true – The US media is more of a problem than the GOP when it comes to attacking the administration of PBO.
