Chuck Hagel and then hosts his annual White House seder, with the core group of guests Obama 2008 campaign staffers who were in Harrisbug, Pa.  battling Hillary Rodham Clinton in the brutal Democratic primary on Passover 2008. The staffers put together a seder at a hotel on the campaign trail and Obama kept the tradition going when he reached the White House.

 

The campaign seder was led by Eric Lesser, then the campaign’s chief baggage wrangler who went on to become an assistant to then White House senior adviser David Axelrod and is now running for the state senate in Massachusetts.

Readout of the President’s Call with President Putin

At Moscow’s request, President Obama spoke with Russian President Putin today about the situation in Ukraine.  The President expressed grave concern about Russian government support for the actions of armed, pro-Russian separatists who threaten to undermine and destabilize the government of Ukraine.  The President emphasized that all irregular forces in the country need to lay down their arms, and he urged President Putin to use his influence with these armed, pro-Russian groups to convince them to depart the buildings they have seized.

 

The President reiterated the importance of Russia withdrawing its troops from Ukraine’s border in order to defuse tensions.  President Obama noted that despite the rhetoric from Russian officials, the government of Ukraine has acted with remarkable restraint, and he praised the Ukrainian government’s efforts to unify the country by holding free and fair presidential elections on May 25, pursuing inclusive constitutional reform and proposing concrete steps toward the decentralization of power.  The President noted Russia’s growing political and economic isolation as a result of its actions in Ukraine and made clear that the costs Russia already has incurred will increase if those actions persist.

 

The President noted the upcoming contact group meeting in Geneva and said that while he continues to believe that a diplomatic solution is still possible, it cannot succeed in an environment of Russian military intimidation on Ukraine’s borders, armed provocation within Ukraine, and escalatory rhetoric by Kremlin officials.

 

 

Statement by the President

A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon.  Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded.  Today, we remember Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard, and Sean Collier.  And we send our thoughts and prayers to those still struggling to recover.

 

We also know that the most vivid images from that day were not of smoke and chaos, but of compassion, kindness and strength: A man in a cowboy hat helping a wounded stranger out of harm’s way; runners embracing loved ones, and each other; an EMT carrying a spectator to safety.  Today, we recognize the incredible courage and leadership of so many Bostonians in the wake of unspeakable tragedy.  And we offer our deepest gratitude to the courageous firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, runners and spectators who, in an instant, displayed the spirit Boston was built on – perseverance, freedom and love.

 

One year later, we also stand in awe of the men and women who continue to inspire us – learning to stand, walk, dance and run again.  With each new step our country is moved by the resilience of a community and a city.  And when the sun rises over Boylston Street next Monday – Patriot’s Day – hundreds of thousands will come together to show the world the meaning of Boston Strong as a city chooses to run again.

The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act (ObamaCARES) Facts:

 

obamacare2

 

 

ACA enrollment through exchanges reached 7.1 million, ahead of early estimates.

* The ACA is quickly reducing the uninsured rate.

* Thanks in part to the ACA, health care spending has slowed dramatically and health care inflation is at its lowest point in 50 years.

* According to the Department of Commerce, the ACA is also having a positive effect on personal incomes.

* And according to the CBO, the system is even more affordable than previously projected.

This is a system that’s working. The right can either acknowledge reality or embrace delusions and conspiracies, but the facts are quite evident for those who care to look. The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act (ObamaCARES) is here to stay.

 

 

Remember when Barack said this would happen 2 years ago....

USPS Harvey Milk Forever Stamp White House Ceremony

 

harvey_milk_stamp_insert

 

Following the announcement that the United States Postal Service first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony of the Harvey Milk Forever Stamp will take place at the White House on May 22, Harvey Milk’s nephew and co-founder of the Harvey Milk Foundation Stuart Milk released the following statement:

“A stamp dedication ceremony on May 22 at the White House comes with incredibly special significance for both place and date. President Obama and his administration have provided the nation with steadfast and trend setting leadership in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the US and abroad….

“The Milk family thanks President Obama and other allies and champions of LGBT inclusive diversity as exemplified by Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, all of the LGBT leaders who have stood on uncle Harvey’s shoulders to run for and serve openly in public office, and each and every LGBT individual who go about their daily life with authenticity, refusing to hide who they are and who they love. Together, all of us, continue to move humanity forward, bending that arc of the moral universe ever closer to justice.”

Honey Maid: This is Wholesome :30 TV Commercial | Official

 

Published on Mar 10, 2014

No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will.

 

 

 

The Honey Maid spot, which first ran on March 10, has generated its share of negative responses, most notably a letter-writing campaign from the not-at-all-overreacting One Million Moms.

Nabisco should be ashamed of themselves for their latest Honey Maid and Teddy Graham cracker commercial where they attempt to normalize sin,” wrote the group. “This commercial not only promotes homosexuality, but then calls the scene in the advertisement wholesome.”

 

 

Nabisco & Honey Maid responded with………

Someone You Should Know So You Can Avoid Them: KEITH KOFFLER, A White House Has Been.


 

By Jueseppi B.

I am veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler. Let's talk about what's really going on here. Well whats really going on here is stupidity Keith.

I am veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler. Let’s talk about what’s really going on here. Well whats really going on here is stupidity Keith.

 

I have been reading Keith Koffler’s attempt at running a blog for about 6 months. While I understand that not everybody loves our beloved President, Barack Hussein Obama, why some so called reporter would choose to write garbage in place of facts, well thats beyond my scope of comprehension.

 

I was building websites and computers back in 1985, and know from that experience the more people that visit a website and the more traffic that website draws, the slower and more difficult it is to process that website traffic.

 

Yesterday there was a rush on the Healthcare.gov website because as with most things involving humans, people waited until the very last possible moment to sign up and visit the Healthcare Marketplace, which caused a “glitch” in how smooth that website was able to process applications.

 

The very uneducated Mr. Keith Koffler reacted to a rush on the Healthcare.gov website in this way:

 

Healthcare.gov on the Fritz

 

by KEITH KOFFLER on MARCH 31, 2014, 4:53 PM

I’d say it’s incomprehensible that all these months after the site didn’t work, it still can’t handle a large load of people – except of course nothing with Obamacare is incomprehensible anymore.

 

I mean, THE OBAMA PEOPLE THEMSELVES PREDICTED A SURGE OF ENROLLMENTS TODAY.

 

I tried to enroll on the Virginia exchange – not that I would have completed the process – and got this:

 

healthcare.gov-error

 

As John McEnroe used to say to umpires, YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!

 

 

Now knowing Mr. Keith Koffler wouldn’t know his ass from a gopher hole when it comes to running a website or anything remotely connected to Internet Technologies….I would be willing to over look his dumbfuckery. The problem is his mindset is so screwed by his blatant racism and hatred of any & all things Barack Hussein Obama, that I cannot over look his dumbfuckery.

 

The sign posted on the Healthcare.gov website during the heavy usage at the website is the same type of notification I get when I visit my utilities website during a thing called “peak usage times.” It’s the same thing I hear when I call my local cable company during the hours between 10 AM and 3 PM, heavy usage times….and listen to a recording telling me “how important my business is and a customer service professional will be with me momentarily.”

 

I assume Mr. Keith Koffler has never experienced such daily occurrences when dealing with a business.

 

I seriously dislike a racist TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBTQA1 Anti- Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRA-Gun Loving Nut Bag Party member such as Mr. Keith Koffler. Especially when that racist TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBTQA1 Anti- Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRA-Gun Loving Nut Bag Party member has the nerve to write such dumbfuckery as what this Mr. Keith Koffler writes.

 

Stop by his blog spot and take a gander at what comes from his tiny diseased mind…. White House Dossier,

 

About

 

White House Dossier, written by veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler, is the only 24/7, totally independent, and fully unauthorized White House news website.  It delivers a unique blend of White House reporting, commentary and analysis – with frequent doses of humor and satire – to carry forward journalism’s traditional mission of holding the powerful to account. The website focuses mainly on President Obama, his administration, and his antagonists.

 

Award winning journalist Keith Koffler has 16 years of experience covering Washington. As a reporter for CongressDailyNational Journal magazine, and Roll Call, Keith wrote primarily from the White House, covering three presidents and learning as few have the intricacies of the West Wing and the behavior and motivations of its occupants. While mainly stationed at the White House, he also extensively covered Congress and Washington’s lobbyists.

 

Keith has also written for a variety of other news organizations, including PoliticoReutersThe Daily Caller, and The London Observer and appeared on Fox News, C-Span, Sirius XM’s POTUS radio, and numerous other radio and TV outlets. He currently writes regular opinion columns for Politico.

 

His work has been referenced in many major domestic and international news outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the BBC, the Washington Post, the London Telegraph, the Daily Mail,National Review the Weekly Standard and the Huffington Post.

 

Keith is a past winner of the $10,000 Force of Language prize for writing from the publishers of The Atlantic magazine.

 

 

Yeah. Uh Huh.

 

Racist GOPukes are so worried that The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act (ObamaCARES) will be successful and that a Negro President will get credit for giving 7 million to 9.5 million Americans a pathway to affordable healthcare, many for the very first time, that they will do anything possible to derail that healthcare train. Sad thing is that most of these traitors are in the media. Are in our houses of local and federal government. Meaning we the people voted them into office.

 

The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act (ObamaCARES) will be successful, because Americans need and want healthcare coverage. That you can take to the bank.

TheObamaCrat™ SoapBox: Whats Wrong With AmeriKKKa?


 

By Jueseppi B.

cellimage

 

 

Can someone explain to me whats wrong with The United States Of AmeriKKKa?

 

I recently reblogged a post from The Last Of The Millenniums entitled……wait for it…..

 

A Republican World – ‘GOP Lawmaker Thinks Businesses Ought To Be Able To Deny Service To Black People’

 

 

This guy….

phil jensewn

 

 

Phil Jensen, a GOP state senator says this: “If someone was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and they were running a little bakery for instance, the majority of us would find it detestable that they refuse to serve blacks, and guess what? In a matter of weeks or so that business would shut down because no one is going to patronize them.”

 

In this year’s legislative session, Jensen offered up a bill that was even more extreme than the legislation in Arizona that would have given businesses an opening to discriminate against LGBT customers.

 

‘Unlike the Arizona bill, Jensen’s measure was explicit. It aimed to give business owners permission to deny service based on a customer’s “sexual orientation” without the fear of a lawsuit’.

 

‘The legislation was ultimately killed in committee, with one GOP lawmaker calling it “a mean, nasty, hateful, vindictive bill.”

 

This is 2014 and it seems, to me, that the main agenda of all The TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBTQA1 Anti- Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRA-Gun Loving Nut Bag Party members, is turning back the clock to 1814.

 

First fact: If State GOPuke Senator Jensen can locate one single “white” person in South Dakota who is actually caucasian pure-blood…pure-bred, I’ll eat this post with salt & pepper, on the steps of the South Dakota Capitol. The truth is all the caucasians (white is not a race) in South Dakota have mixed blood DNA. THATS a fact based on the civilization of the planet started & developed on the continent of Africa. YOU can Google it State GOPuke Senator Jensen.

 

Second Fact: IF the good Negro’s of South Dakota decided to boycott every business in South Dakota they thought was owned & operated by racist caucasians, in response to State GOPuke Senator Jensen’s bill…..South Dakota would become the new Detroit….economically speaking.

 

Here’s some advice for dumbass State GOPuke Senator Jensen….think back on all the contributions Black Americans have made in this nation, then remove your racist, ugly, nasty head from your rectum.

 

jensen

 

In case State GOPuke Senator Jensen needs an education on Black History……check out TheObamaCrat™ entensive Black History lesson.

 

Maybe State GOPuke Senator Jensen could also learn a thing or two by reading

 

Celebrating Black History Month: The Black History Moment Series #3. Post Racial AmeriKKKa.

 

Celebrating Black History Month, The Black History Moment Series #14: Post Racial America You Say….The Curious Case Of Mr. Alfred Wright.

 

Maybe, if he pulls his head out of his anus, he’ll realize AmeriKKKa can not exist with out the financial and physical contributions of Black Americans.

 

Maybe.

Weekly Address: Time for Congress to Raise the Minimum Wage for the American People

 

Lindsay Holst
Lindsay Holst

March 08, 2014
06:00 AM EST

 

In this week’s address, President Obama highlighted the momentum building across the country to give Americans a raise and reiterated his call for Congress to increase the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10. The President has already signed an executive order to raise the minimum wage for people working under new federal contracts. Companies large and small are choosing to give workers a raise because they know it’s good business. And Governors across the country are answering the President’s call by working to raise their states’ minimum wages. Now, it’s time for Congress to get the job done and restore opportunity for all Americans by raising the minimum wage to “ten-ten.”

The President traveled to Powell Elementary School on Tuesday after sending his 2015 budget to Congress. There, he discussed what he called a “roadmap” for the opportunity agenda he laid out in his State of the Union address.

“Our budget is about choices,” President Obama said. “It’s about our values. As a country, we’ve got to make a decision if we’re going to protect tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans, or if we’re going to make smart investments necessary to create jobs and grow our economy, and expand opportunity for every American.”

Today, President Obama and the First Lady visited Coral Reef High School in Miami to discuss the President’s plan to equip all Americans with the education they need to compete in the 21st century economy.

 

“By working hard every single day, every single night, you are making the best investment there is in your future,” President Obama told the students. “And we want to make sure you’ve got everything, all the tools you need to succeed.”

 

President Obama talked about one tool that’s helping give more students the opportunity to afford, attend, and graduate from college: the Free Application for Student Aid or FAFSA.

 

It is a simple form. It used to be complicated; we made it simple. It doesn’t cost anything — that’s why the word “free” is right there in the name. It does not take a long time to fill out. Once you do, you’re putting yourself in the running for all kinds of financial support for college — scholarships, grants, loans, work-study jobs.

 

Over the last five years, the Obama administration has been working to make college more affordable for more students. And today, more young people are earning college degrees than ever before. But we have to do more, President Obama said.

YouTube Stars Talk Health Care (and Make History) at the White House

This year, the President is committed to using the power of his phone and pen to create opportunity for all Americans. One ways he’s doing that is through raising awareness about policies and priorities through non-traditional platforms, like YouTube.

 

Last week, senior administration officials sat down with some of the most popular content creators on YouTube to talk about the issues that they care the most about, including access to quality, affordable health care. This group of influencers has developed innovative ways to engage with tens of millions of young people in a way that few other media platforms can accomplish. To learn from the YouTube community, we’re starting a dialogue with these leaders to continue the conversation about issues that are important for their audiences including anti-bullying, education, economic opportunity, and health care.

The Employment Situation in February

 

February 2014 was the 48th straight month of private-sector job growth, with businesses adding 8.7 million jobs over that time. Despite a major snowstorm that hit the East Coast during the reference week for the labor market surveys, the rate of job growth picked up from the December and January pace. Nevertheless, the unemployment rate remains elevated, and for too many Americans, wages have been slow to rise.

 

This week, the President put out a budget that can make progress on these issues by investing in education, job training, and innovation, by expanding tax credits for working Americans, and by extending the emergency unemployment benefits that has expired for 2 million Americans. And while the President encourages Congress to act on his proposals, he will also continue to take action on his own wherever possible to support job growth and expand economic opportunity.

 

FIVE KEY POINTS IN TODAY’S REPORT FROM THE BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS

 

1. The private sector has added 8.7 million jobs over 48 straight months of job growth. Today we learned that total non-farm payroll employment rose by 175,000 in February, with 162,000 of that increase in the private sector. Revisions to private employment in the previous months were small and offsetting, so that that over the past twelve months, private employment has risen by 2.2 million, or an average of 183,000 a month. This is almost identical to the pace of job gains over the preceding twelve-month period (182,000 a month).

Today – March 8th, 2014 – Is “International Women’s Day”.

 

 

International Women’s Day

 

International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is marked on March 8th every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern EuropeRussia, and the former Soviet bloc.

 

In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.

Statement by the President on Bloody Sunday

Forty-nine years ago, a determined group of Americans marched into history, facing down grave danger in the name of justice and equality—walking to protest the continued discrimination and violence against African Americans.  On a day that became known as “Bloody Sunday”, these brave men and women met billy-clubs and tear gas with courage and resolution.  Their actions helped set an example for a generation to stand up for the fundamental freedoms due to all people.  We recognize those who marched that day—and the millions more who have done their part throughout our nation’s history to bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice.
