In addition to the concert at the White House, there will be a live-viewing by active duty members of the military from the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

As with previous White House music events, the First Lady will host a special daytime workshop for students on November 6. The First Lady will welcome high school students from military communities in the greater Washington, Maryland, and Virginia area to take part in an interactive student workshop: “The Stars and Stripes Forever: A History of Music and the Military.” Robert Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum® in Los Angeles, will give participating students an overview of the origins of music’s place in military life and explore the impact of music in times of war. Featured performers from the evening event will share their experiences as well as answer student questions about the music and entertainment world.

The workshop, “The Stars and Stripes Forever: A History of Music and the Military,” will stream live on WhiteHouse.gov/live.

 

“A Salute to the Troops: In Performance at the White House” will be the thirteenth “In Performance at the White House” program during President Barack Obama’s administration. From February 2009 to the most recent broadcast in April 2014, these latest “In Performance at the White House” events have honored the musical genius of Stevie Wonder, Sir Paul McCartney, Burt Bacharach, Hal David and Carole King; celebrated Hispanic musical heritage during Hispanic Heritage Month; marked Black History Month with events featuring the music of Motown, Memphis Soul, Women of Soul, the Blues, and from the Civil Rights Movement; explored the rich roots of Country music; and spotlighted Broadway and the unique spirit of the American musical. Video from past performances are available at www.whitehouse.gov/performances.

 

In 2011, Mrs. Obama and Dr. Jill Biden came together to launch Joining Forces, a nationwide initiative calling all Americans to rally around service members, veterans, and their families and support them through wellness, education, and employment opportunities. Joining Forces works hand in hand with the public and private sector to ensure that service members, veterans, and their families have the tools they need to succeed throughout their lives. More information about Joining Forces is available at www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces.

Mensaje De La Casa Blanca

 

Published on Oct 25, 2014

En el mensaje de esta semana, Cecilia Muñoz habló sobre las medidas que estamos tomando para responder a los casos del Ébola en el país, mientras trabajamos para contener la epidemia en su origen en África Occidental. Esta semana continuamos centrándonos en la preparación para el hogar, con la creación de nuevas pautas de los Centros De Control de Enfermedad y el anuncio de nuevas para que todos los nuevos viajeros procedentes de los tres países afectados se dirigen hacia uno de los cinco aeropuertos designados para revisiones de control. El Presidente hizo hincapié en que es importante saber los hechos, en lugar del miedo, como los neoyorquinos hicieron ayer, cuando continuaron con su rutina diaria. El Ébola no es una enfermedad fácilmente transmisible, y los Estados Unidos es el líder mundial en la lucha para acabar con esa enfermedad en el África occidental.

obama, don’t touch my girlfriend. mike tells president obama don’t touch my girlfriend as he casts vote, man to barack obama “don’t touch my girlfriend” video. Mike Jones, Cooper’s boyfriend, told President Obama, “don’t touch my girlfriend.” “I said, I know you’re Mr. President, but don’t touch my girlfriend,” Jones said. Yep, Jones teased the president. “I didn’t know what to say. I was just shaking. I said ‘Oh boy, this is the president. What am I supposed to do?” Cooper said. When President Barack Obama voted in Chicago yesterday, he did so next to Aia Cooper, whose boyfriend was careful to make sure the chief executive didn’t get any notions. “Don’t touch my girlfriend,” Mike Jones joked as he walked by. “I really wasn’t planning on it,” Obama said, and then to a clearly mortified Cooper: “Now there’s an example of a brother just embarrassing you for no reason, no reason whatsoever. Now you’re gonna be going back home, talking to your friends saying, ‘I can’t believe Mike — he is such a fool. Fortunately the president was nice about it, so it was all right.’”

 

“He gave me a hug and a kiss, on the cheek,” Cooper later told CNN. “Just the cheek – please, Michelle, don’t come after me – just the cheek!”

That’s a photo of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo’s dogs waiting for him to come home. Unfortunately, he’s not coming home. Not today. Not ever.

He was near the end of an hour’s duty standing honor guard at the foremost monument to his nation’s fallen soldiers, the granite and bronze National War Memorial in central Ottawa, when a gunman shot and fatally wounded him on Wednesday morning.  He was a barrel-chested young man with a ready smile, a gym buff with a fondness for rescue dogs, and the very proud father of a sandy-haired boy who had just started kindergarten. (NY Times)

And be sure not to miss this short NBC news segment that ran last night on Canada’s tribute to Cpl Cirillo. As a fellow Canadian, I was MOVED but the response.

Debunking The “There’s No Difference Between The Two Parties’ Lie – ‘Why conservatives prefer propaganda to reality’

Consistent conservatives only trusted 8 media sources–compared to the 28 liberals trusted–and of the eight, only one has anything approaching respectable reporting or reliable information’.

‘And that one, the Wall Street Journal, has good straight reporting but has an op-ed page that is a train wreck of right-wing distortions and misinformation’.

‘But what is really frightening is the reach of Fox News’.

‘Fox News rated as the only real news source for consistent conservatives, with 47% of them citing it as their main source of news’.

‘Nothing even came close to touching it, as the second most common answer, “local radio” was cited by only 11% of consistent conservatives’.

Eighty-eight percent of consistent conservatives trusted Fox News’.

Well, well, the more you know.  I just automatically assumed they did sue the POTUS since they made such a big deal when announcing the lawsuit…

The planned lawsuit was announced this summer and, as Politico reported Friday citing lawyers close to the litigation, it was initially expected to be filed in mid-September.

The lawsuit now isn’t expected to be filed until after the elections, Politico’s sources said. One possible factor? It would have motivated Democratic voters to turn out at the polls.

Massa Media Wants U.S. To Forget About Beavercreek While He Burns Ferguson Down

Massa Media is doing his best to burn Ferguson, Missouri to the ground. This “leaked” information proves nothing about the guilt or innocence of Darren Wilson or Michael Brown. Dr. Baden’s first report suggests otherwise. Puff The Magic Dragon has mysteriously produced several African-American witnesses that favor Darren Wilson, but they are too afraid to come forward due to the fear of retribution from their “own kind.”?????????????
It is patently absurd to suggest that these folks can’t think for themselves, or that they are intensely afraid of their own people. Any upstanding citizen, given the chance, would squash all insinuations of racism and unnecessary police brutality in this case.

If they really saw the victim sealing his own fate by violently assaulting Wilson, this information should be presented during a trial-Not before a bunch of redneck losers complaining about how sick they are of hearing about racism without regard for those…
