@petesouza: Pres Obama looks on as departing WH Press Secretary opens a gift from him this evening
A great memory for a wonderful press secretary. Wish him well.
I loved Jay and will miss him. Hope the guy replacing him is as good as he was.
Loved him too TrumpDog, he served the President well, hope he enjoys his time away from the WH press shills.
I’ll triple that!
Jay was/is outstanding. I will miss his wit and nerves of steel.
I WILL MISS JAY…:(……………….I’VE BEEN OUT A COUPLE OF DAYS…NASTY FLU BUG….BLESSINGS EVERYONE!

Meeeeee! I’s here at last!!!
Hey you! :-)
Helloooo, sistah! You survived the Friday afternoon meeting! Was it one of those held at the corner pub?
Sadly, it was not. Glad this week is O.vah!
Now have yourself a lovely weekend, alone or with family and friends!
A friend of mine on facebook has reference to an article written by Allen West. It shows a picture of people lying on the ground about to be shot. I am suspicious that it is a current picture. Is there anyway to find out when a picture was take. I told them Allen West was a jackass.
The picture may well be from ISIS – they are advertizing their mass grave war crimes rather robustly these days.
thanks for the answer Bob
If you download the photo onto your computer as a jpeg file (or other device — I only use computers, know nothing about smartphone/tablet apps) you can upload it to tineye.com which will respond with links to that photo, ending with the original online posting.
It’s a handy tool it you’re curious where a photo was taken and/or when it was originally posted to the Internet.
Excited to join @iowademocrats as they honor @SenatorHarkin at their 2014 Hall of Fame Dinner. http://t.co/am75VIJVrf— Martin O'Malley (@GovernorOMalley) June 21, 2014
Seriously hope we have a robust primary in the spirit of a true democracy. Until then, let’s fight like it’s 2014!
Guess he just announced for 2016 with that tweet… and doing it right, working to keep Dem Senate THIS year! Bravo!
Well, he has said he’s running and that he can’t wait for HRC to make up her mind but he’s also been very low key about it. We’ll see what develops. I hope he is viable. We need a vigorous primary!
Meta….I really do believe that more candidates will declare after the 2014 midterms
I truly hope so. This coronation stuff is getting tiresome. I saw an article already lining up HRC’s cabinet, for crissakes.
I know….but the more they try to force her down our throats…the more we refuse to swallow…
One of my facebook groupd – Democratic – and lately they have been all HIllary all the time. I get sick of it. They are always on about B. Clinton was the best president and they would vote for him again, HIll and Bill – a twofer!, etc., etc. I liked Bill Clinton too but I don’t want to see him in the White House again and I think all the old Clinton baggage will come dragging back, I’m not as sure as they are that she will win a national election, and I was not impressed with her primary campagin in ’08. But they don’t want to hear any of that. If it keeps up I will drop the group. I wonder how widespread this Hillary stuff goes in the rank and file or if its just a relatively small group of vocal supporters.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for an O’Malley-Deval Patrick ticket.
I’ve mentioned before that RWNJ would attack Gov Patrick unmercilessly if he were President now; a cooling off period (i.e., time for the nastiest bigots to meet their maker) with President O’Malley and VP Patrick would be just the ticket.
Then, time for President Patrick!
… should be “if he ran for President in 2016″ not “if he were President now.”
Dear @GovernorOMalley TY for honoring @SenatorHarkin & for recognizing the best prep for #2016 is #LandslideDEMS2014. #GOTV @iowademocrats— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 21, 2014
Bravo for that excellent tweet Bob!
I really like Gov. Martin O’Malley! If VP Biden decides not to run, Gov. O’Malley will be my #1 choice should he decide to run. Obviously, if Hillary Clinton ends up to be the nominee of the Democratic party I will vote for her. But right now I am for Joe Biden, and if not, then Gov. Martin O’Malley! My very dear niece who lives in SilverSpring MD, is 100% for O’Malley in 2016.
Hi Everyone had no internet service for 2 weeks at home too busy at work to do more than glance so waaaay behind, however have a great weekend everyone keep up the good work NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US SHALL PROSPER its Obama ’til 2017

Welcome to the waaaay behind club, Anjo.
I missed most of the President’s trip to Europe, but I’m determined to catch up.
TOD twitter brigade, Jay has set up his own twitter account:

Inorite?! I think he must love that photo. Who wouldn’t?!
President @BarackObama’s campaign manager David Plouffe: Clinton Wasn’t Told to Attack Palin Bloomberg via bloom.bg/1lT3lrP— meta (@metaquest) June 21, 2014
Thx, Meta. This was an incredible stupid claim for Clinton to make–one easily debunked by the Obama team. She did herself no favors with this.
It doesn’t make any sense for her to propagate this lie. Is she trying to burnish her credentials with uneducated white women? Just another indication that she struggles to express the truth with any semblance of authenticity.
This reminds me of when she claimed she had been under fire at that airport.
And, @metaquest @BarackObama, I know which of the two I believe! Don't you?— Vick C. (@sonamie) June 21, 2014
I really don’t believe POTUS would have okay anything like that. So what was the purpose of Hillary putting that in her book?
If you want my opinion, Annieb, I think Hillary is willing to exploit any scenario she thinks can be exploited.
I really, really do not see her as a candidate who has the good of ALL citizens at heart. Though I don’t think she wishes harm to any citizen, I see Hillary as primarily interested in what benefits the Clintons and their kind, while allowing some general goodwill to ‘trickle down’. She and Bill smile and pat the rest of us on the head in passing, making sure to show largesse to a few well-placed ‘minorities’.
Reminder of the 2008 Primary lie by Hillary that included Chelsea of ducking bullets and running for life when leaving plane in war zone. Photos of Hillary receiving flowers from small girls on the Tarmack came out refuting her lie. Compulsive liars do it so frequently they are not even aware of it. Involving her daughter to me is inexcusable.
Thank you, meta.. I didn’t think so at the time I read. why the hell would she say something so inane?!
@JayCarney You're an admirable person. Your ability to school the #WHPC #NEWSTAINERS is legend. TY for your loyal service to America & #PBO.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 21, 2014
Looks as though it’s an unverified twitter account? I followed him, anyway!
I hesitated about the lack of verification, then decided that the tone and wording seemed legit (no snark), so plunged right in. Also, he introduced it from the old @PressSec account. Maybe he’ll ‘verify’ it later.
I missed that last “introduced it from the old @PressSec” part! Thanks.
My pleasure. :grin:
Stealing intellectual property. BIG NO NO…but from a liberal? For shame.
Poroshenko Proposes 15 Point Peace Plan
The office of the Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko, has published his proposals for a peace plan:
Peaceful plan of the President of Ukraine on the settlement of the situation in eastern regions of Ukraine:
1. Security guarantees for all the participants of negotiations.
2. Amnesty for those who laid down weapons and didn’t commit serious crimes.
3. Liberation of hostages.
4. Establishment of 10 km long buffer zone on the Ukrainian-Russian border. Withdrawal of illegal armed formations.
5. Secure corridor for the escape of Russian and Ukrainian mercenaries.
7. Establishment of units for joint patrolling in the structure of the MIA.
8. Liberation of illegally seized administrative premises in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
9. Restoration of functioning of local government.
10. Restoration of central television and radio broadcasting in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
11. Decentralization of power (through the election of executive committees, protection of Russian language; draft amendments to the Constitution).
12. Coordination of governors with representatives of the Donbas before the elections (in case of the approval of single candidature, in case of discrepancies – the decision is taken by the President).
13. Early local and parliamentary elections.
14. Program of creating jobs in the region.
15. Restoration of industrial objects and objects of social infrastructure.
The BBC reports that Poroshenko also announced that he would invite the OSCE to monitor the ceasefire.
Needless to say, Russia and the terrorists have not responded positively.
President Poroshenko, hopefully, is a way better strategist than Tzar Vlad. He certainly has a much better citizenry behind him.
Seems pretty reasonable to me. So of course Tzar Vlad won’t like it.
My hope, John, is that this is a planned step and that the coordination among the US, EU, NATO and President Poroshenko is exceptionally well planned.
Vlad is invading Ukraine with armor and mercs 24/7.
If that doesn’t stop and attacks on Ukraine troops continue, then a massive hammer of concerted sanctions along with economic and military (logistics, training, etc., not troops) assistance for Ukraine will be delivered quickly and abundantly.
Poroshenko seems pretty impressive to me. This is a reasonable and sane plan and he’s probably aware (and hopefully prepared) for its rejection by Putin. Still, he’s showing all Ukrainians and anyone in the world watching that Ukraine is a country with strong leadership that’s committed to building and growing, not destroying.
Just picked up dinner. Listening to some lovely Celtic tunes on my local public radio station. Hats off to ya, Chips!
Off to brave the traffic!
Safe home, Dudette!
Thanks honey bunny! :-)
Goodness, I don’t know why I assumed you had already made it home! Probably thought you wouldn’t have to work after the meeting was over. :( Blessings and drive safely, my child.
But wait, there’s more…

If this big march of 20 people (guns a’blazing) or less (the normal “big march” count from these yokels) takes place, can’t say this wasn’t expected. It’s more or less the next step in their deranged little minds. Probably their street map shows the White House at the end of the corn maze. Sickening. If the situation were in reverse, all the streets in the white community would be cordoned off and no permits granted, of course.

I think they really are itching for a civil war. Janet Napolitano nailed it years ago.
Yes she did and they laughed and ridiculed her for even thinking that.
Yes, she did. That’s one of the truths that people didn’t want to hear then, and still don’t.

This show will be cool.
Too sleepy to read the story, but there’s a whole “Hollywood” media branch of Navy communications (and probably all services) to advise on this kind of stuff, telling the Navy story. This does sound good!
I’m going to really miss Jay. I still miss Reggie Love :cry:
