      GM TOD family,
      I thought that my heart would have ceased being filled whenever POB and FLOTUS travel together by now.
      Well, today is not one of those days. I do not know if because our peace loving President stood flat feet and looked into the cameras and said in essence NO WAR!
      And then he and and soulmate walk away holding unto to each other in peace and love.
      I though of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee…..back together again.
      They board AF-1 waving while going to attend a ceremony of the FIRST Americans who tired to live in peace and love.
      All I can say is today is another day that Love Lifted Me.
      Thank you, Ms. Chips and everyone here who make sacrifices and love that keeps drawing us here closer to one heartbeat of love.
      I am so grateful today that voted this caring man and his family to clean up the mess others have no remorse in creating.
      Have a great weekend everyone!

        Please forgive my hands and not my heart for the errors up above…..tears overflowing for the beautiful pictures of a beautiful people.
        The love is powerful here.
        I needed this. We needed this. And I am sure our First Family is grateful to start a weekend with so much culture, history and beauty.
        It warms my heart.

      Beyond the riveting presence and communication of our President, I also found the way the Light played throughout, and the admirable training and self-control of the Marine, out of focus in a fascinating manner, standing at attention the entire time. No ‘interpretation’ needed, just the straight delivery by the Bear.

    “Finally, they have won me over. I actually agree with the liberals’ war whoop,” the former Republican vice presidential nominee wrote on her Facebook page. “I, too, demand that this issue of young illegal aliens flooding across our border into horrendous conditions be taken care of. Now!”

    “As a Christian I find it unforgivable to ignore this issue of overrunning border security into these conditions in southern states, and this one issue is just about driving me to renounce my Republican ties because, see, even leaders on the RIGHT side of the aisle haven’t exerted all Constitutional power to stop the madness,” she wrote. “A few have tried, but until they’re sent reinforcements, then atrocities like the child abuse and exploitation you’re now getting wind of will only get worse.”

    Twisted Palin with conflicted thoughts, yet again……..Who does she think she’s fooling?

    Go ahead and Leave the GOP and lets see (A) if Fox will still employ you, Palin and (B) if those GOPers who send your PAC money will continue to fund your travels.

      Wait Nina – check this out… Per Say Pay — it is Obama’s falut and the solution is to jet fuel fly the kids back home to their parents.


      “In this case, Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration laws and his blatant suggestion that his chosen illegal activity will be rewarded are proof of his tyrannical tactics,” Palin wrote. “The recent numerous manipulated ‘crises’ have the media pinging and ponging trying to keep up with what is the scandal of the day, which one overshadows another, and how will they distract next, and who’s on first?! Purposeful decisions causing these crises are meant to overload the system, justify abuse of executive power to ‘fix’ it all, and ultimately tighten control of the people.”

      But lest anyone thought Palin was siding with Democrats who have called for giving legal status to undocumented children, she added in a post-script to her note that she would prefer to deport the children:

      “The primary expenditure we need to supply in this humanitarian crisis is jet fuel to fly these children back home to their parents.”

      True, it would be nice if you saw them bring on some of those that warned about this very thing happening, like Ricks, Shinseki, and others.

    “As reported earlier today, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is officially back on United States soil. He was flown in last night from a U.S. Army hospital in Germany to the Brooke Army Medical center in San Antonio, Texas.

    At 4:00 p.m. ET, the Army will hold a press conference discussing Bergdahl’s condition and medical care.


    Just FYI.

    MSM would probably cover this.

    The sinking Scott Brown for Senate in New Hampshire campaign suffered another blow when they sent out a press release attacking Sen. Jeanne Shaheen for not appearing with Obama in her backyard. The problem is that Obama was in Massachusetts, not New Hampshire.

    The Washington Post reported:

    Scott Brown’s New Hampshire Senate campaign sent a news release Wednesday questioning why Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) wasn’t appearing with President Obama while he was “in town.”

    But Obama was in Worcester, Mass., about 50 miles from the New Hampshire border. The president will then be raising money in Boston for Senate Democrats.

    When asked about this gaffe, the Brown campaign responded with one of the worst excuses ever. They claimed that by in town they meant in New England, even though New England is a region, not a town. The truth is that the Brown people don’t know what state they are running. Scott Brown lives in Massachusetts. He was a senator from Massachusetts. It makes sense that his campaign would still be thinking Massachusett

      Scott Brown needs some help. I hop Jeanne Shaheen will crush him badly and send him back to his truck.

    Looks like POTUS asked to meet the people who put up all the tipis. Secret Service has found them with help of the cool announcer guy.
