    BOOM

    With that, I’ll take a few questions from you media stenographers masquerading as real journalists.

    HA! PBO says that the Repubs are now going through the 8 stages of grief regarding the ACA :) Haven’t come to acceptance yet though:)

    ACA follow-up goes straight to the politics of it all. Good question, allows PBO to continue to stick to the party of stupid.

    PBO recognizes that ‘pubs need to get through the stages of grief about ACA. What a guy!

    Secret Report: Pro-Russian Militias ‘Supervised and Guided’ By Russian Intelligence

    “Pro-Russian militia in Ukraine are being supervised and guided by Russian army intelligence agents based in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, according to a document seen by The Times.

    Ten Russian “spies and raiders” were arrested in Ukraine during the past month, the analysis of Moscow’s involvement by the Ukrainian secret service says, while telephone intercepts show orders from Russian agents directing attacks. In one assault, a Ukrainian security officer was shot dead in Slovyansk on April 13.

    The document is being sent to European Union governments as further evidence that Moscow is behind the pro-Russian militia action in eastern and southern Ukraine.

    One European foreign service has accepted it as a credible indicator of Moscow’s involvement. The militia who occupied administrative buildings in Donetsk were not only armed with AK-100 weapons, “a model used exclusively by the Russian army and special-ops”, but their shoes were “manufactured by Butex, the Russian enterprise that supplied Russian security agencies”, the report says.”

      THE ONLY ADULT IN THE ROOM

      That was like a mini seminar on the Obama administration domestic and foreign policy. President Obama took his time and answered every question thoroughly and completely on his terms. And boy oh boy did he get a lot in. PBO turned a firehose of facts on the jackals and they looked like they were in a state of shock.

    Fipping through the channels and an observation…..PBO press briefing interrupted programming on all the network channels. On the network channels ABC, CBS, NBC, the post briefing commentary is all about Ukraine. On the cable channels CNN, MSNBC, FOX, the post briefing conversation starts off with talk about ACA.

    “Stages of grief” hahahaha
    PBO held nothing back—-what a strong leader we are so so so so lucky to have.
    The President skewered the GOP governors who are witholding health care for no other reason but spite.

    POTUS gave Major Garrett of CBS an interview and the 1st question went to a woman from CA. But instead of CA ACA sign up, she went for Ukraine?

    But best of all…….No AP, NBC, CNN, ABC, Fox, Bloomberg………but Politico? Oh well, POTUS was having fun……..

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, NW. I am so frustrated about the lack of sound that I could scream. Since I have zero technical skills, I’m just floundering right now. I think it’s just the WH feed that’s the problem since I can get You Tube sound. Maybe the press conference will show up there eventually.

    Afterward, Jay Carney briefed reporters and answered questions at the daily White House briefing.

    Antisemitic flyer in Donetsk: Clarification and statement of the rabbinate

    “For we are not in Russia, where truth is obviously not the main issue, we wanted to find out what has happened. Now we contacted the office of Rabbi Pinchas Vishedski of Donetsk to ask him whether he could give us additional information on this event. Kindly his office gave us the following statement:

    „Yes, we received it late evening on 15th of April. You can find the copy in attachment. But this letter was a provocation and the man whose signature you can see on the letter Denis Pushilin totally disproved this words yesterday …He told on TV that it wasnt a letter from “Donetsk republic” and they do not have any problems with Jews. Our local governance and Security Service of Ukraine will take care of this situation and will do everthing to find people who did these letters…and we trust them. It is safe here for all Jews.“

    So, obviously those leaflets were not meant officially. There is no immediate danger for the Jewish community in Donetsk. Might be, that some of the „tourists“ thought it was funny. We can only speculate.”

    THE 50 VOTES RIFF WAS BRILLIANT …….

    President Obama mocked the 50 times the Republicans voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act LAW by saying that instead there could have been 50 votes to create jobs, improve infrastructure, innovation, college, raise the minimum wage and unemployment insurance.

    BURN.
