Alaska Dispatch News: Day 2 Live Blog: President Obama In Alaska

The president discussed the baked contents of the display case with an employee, saying at one point: “I’ll take all of those,” and pointing to a batch of cinnamon rolls.  Then he turned to the crowd in the restaurant behind him and began shaking hands. He signed a copy of an Obama book held by 3-year-old Elliott Adams.  “He’s been carrying a book about Obama around since he got here,” said Elliott’s mother, Ash Adams.  Obama also took a moment to take photos with restaurant staff.

U.S. President Barack Obama greets people at Snow City Cafe in Anchorage, Alaska, September 1, 2015. Obama on Tuesday proposed a faster timetable for buying a new heavy icebreaker for the U.S. Arctic, where quickly melting sea ice has spurred more maritime traffic, and the United States has fallen far behind Russian resources. The move, part of a push to convince Americans to support Obama's plans to curb climate change, has long been urged by Arctic advocates as climate change opens up the region to more shipping, mining and drilling.

      I am not sure who or what Barclay’s is, but the smartest thing that they did was have Idris talk about them (love his accent as well).

      Modern audiences are not that in to James Bond, especially the young people. Like Dan tweeted, such a movie with Idris in it would bring in big money. So tired of these racists ass wipes who still think that the world ends and begins with white Euro-centric males. F@@k the author’s apology; he said exactly what he meant and believes and it is only when he received blow-back that he made his punk ass, statement. No one believes it or accepts it.

    Wow! This post is exactly what I (and any breathing female) need right now. Have spent hours cleaning for weekend visit from granddaughter and on the phone with family as my oldest sister has been released from the hospital with possible effects from a minor stroke. Now my head is filled with the kind of photos that make you feel young again. PBO is not only the adult in every room, but he manages to display his inner child whenever a treat is in sight. Guess he really likes cinnamon buns.

    Meanwhile, the REAL James Bond is going after IS leaders like never before. That’s my POTUS, of course.

    CONFRONTING THE ‘CALIPHATE’ | This is part of an occasional series about the rise of the Islamic State militant group, its implications for the Middle East, and efforts by the U.S. government and others to undermine it.

    The CIA and U.S. special operations forces have launched a secret campaign to hunt terrorism suspects in Syria as part of a targeted killing program that is run separately from the broader U.S. military offensive against the Islamic State, U.S. officials said.

      Are there any Senate Dems undeclared that are considered “on the fence” or “likely supporters”: of the Iran Deal?

      • September 1, 2015 at 4:29 pm

        I really don’t know but seems we should be able to count on Cantwell, Mikulski, maybe Warner.

        At least Booker, right? Did I miss his announcement?

          September 1, 2015 at 4:45 pm

          He’s being a total jackass. He has political (and I assume financial) support from one of the RWNJ rabbis, and he’s been courted by the AIPAC crowd. I’ve tweeted – and I suggest others do so as well – that his career for higher office as a Democrat will be over if he does not vote for a deal that takes NOTHING off the table, and is the most comprehensive non-nuke deal in history. There is no “losing” here. It’s a win-win.

          September 1, 2015 at 4:48 pm

          Haven’t head anything about Booker, yet, but I’m thrilled that my senator, Bob Casey, is a yes vote. Constituent pressure does work. There is no reason on this planet why Mikulski and Booker are still holdouts.

        My mom’s friend’s cousin went to AK in the 80’s when that pipeline was under construction looking for a husband. She met and married a wonder guy until his death in early 2000’s. I remember Oprah did a show on all the single men in AK and there were lots of AA men there looking for wifes/girlfriends.

        It truly galls me that this woman is still receiving her full salary for not doing her job. First hold back her money; then ask her to vacate her office so a functioning clerk can take her place; then charge her for the space she takes up if she continues to come into the office.

      This lady got some nerve denying people the right to get married when she already got the chance three times. BTW isn’t divorce a sin in her Bible? She said the decision is heaven or hell for her. We are all sinners, saved by grace. Let the people get married to each other or a broomstick, what do you care?

    • September 1, 2015 at 8:31 pm

      I heard the clerk who would not give out the marriage license is a registered Democrat.
