President Obama Meets with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi

 

This morning, President Obama met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, marking the first bilateral summit between the two heads of state.

 

“It is an extraordinary pleasure to welcome Prime Minister Modi to the White House for the first time,” President Obama said in remarks after their meeting. The President recognized the Prime Minister’s historic victory in the Indian general election earlier this year, and the two leaders discussed the broad partnership that exists between the United States and India:

 

I think that the entire world has watched the historic election and mandate that the people of India delivered in the recent election.  And I think everyone has been impressed with the energy and the determination with which the Prime Minister has looked to address not only India’s significant challenges, but more importantly, India’s enormous opportunities for success in the 21st century.

We have had an outstanding discussion around a range of issues.  And we, during our discussions, reaffirmed that as two of the world’s largest democracies, vibrant people-to-people contacts between India and the United States, including an incredible Indian American population that contributes so much, that we have so much in common it is critical for us to continue to deepen and broaden the existing framework of partnership and friendship that already exists.


“I think that the entire world has watched the historic election and mandate that the people of India delivered in the recent election.”

– President Barack Obama

First Lady Michelle Obama Hosts the National Design Awards Luncheon

 

 

 

Remarks by the First Lady at Annual Cooper Hewitt Luncheon

East Room

1:08 P.M. EDT

 

MRS. OBAMA:  Well, good afternoon everyone, and welcome to the White House.  Yay!  (Applause.)  See, I always have to loosen you guys up.  You’re in the White House, you’re a little stiff.  (Laughter.)  But let me just take a moment to notice these nice chairs — pretty nice.  This is a new addition to the luncheon, those of you who have been here.  (Laughter.)  This is — round of applause.  (Applause.)

 

ef5cb0f175323126610f6a7067001b06

 

Well, it is truly a pleasure to be here with all of you today as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the National Design Awards.  And I have been fortunate enough to be here for — this is my 6th year that we’ve had the pleasure of hosting this event here in the East Room.  And every year, I truly look forward to learning more about the honorees.  I mean, I get to read everything, but then, every now and then, I get to sit down and talk to you guys and actually learn a little bit about how you do what you do.

 

And what I discover is that these men and women are some of the most daring and creative minds in the world.  From a designer at Google who’s using data and crowd-sourcing to create art that will take your breath away, to the former Hollywood set designers who are now creating some of the most unique buildings and interiors that you’ll ever see — and they like each other, I think.  (Laughter.)  And then there’s this fashion designer whose parents tried to convince him to be a lawyer, or a doctor, or a dentist, or something like that.  And I’m sure that I speak for all women — (laughter) — when I say that I’m grateful that Narciso chose another path.  (Laughter and applause.)  Well done.

 

And it’s that idea of a path — a life’s journey — that I’d like to spend just a moment reflecting on.  Because every year at this event, I love asking our honorees how they ended up in these cool careers in the first place.  And more often than not, they tell me some crazy, quirky, interesting story about a string of coincidences that led them here today -– a chance meeting that turned into a partnership or business; a passion that no one ever dreamed they could actually make a living from; a mentor, a teacher, a family member who sort of led them into the career.

 

And as we reflect on the obstacles, and all the zig-zags and false starts that the folks we honor in this room have faced, I also want us to ask ourselves a few questions:  What can we do to help smooth the path for those who come after?  How do we make sure that our young people know about these careers?  I think about that all the time.  Who knows that you can do the stuff you do?  They don’t teach it in school, and we don’t want to leave it to luck or coincidence or chance to allow the next generation to make their dreams come true.

 

And more importantly, what are we doing to prepare the next generation for the opportunities that we do create for them?  How are we reaching our young people where they are in a way that really moves them and inspires them to commit to their education and fulfill their boundless promise?  Because in this age, as you know — and I’ve got teenagers — (laughter) — when our kids are always buried in some screen or device, what I’ve learned is that we can’t just lecture them anymore.  They tune us out.  (Laughter.)  It happens every night at dinner, it’s so sad.  We’ve got to really engage them and find ways for them to interact with us in new ways and with the world around them.

 

And that’s why I am so excited about the new Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, which will reopen in December, because you all are embracing the technology of the next generation in some really exciting ways.  I haven’t got a chance to see it; I’m going to come visit when it’s open, but I understand that you’re giving everyone who enters this new museum an interactive pen they can use to download information from ultra-high-definition exhibition tables — which means that essentially a visitor can record their visit, and then share and view it online long after they leave the museum, which is really kind of cool.  You’re also creating something called an “immersion room,” where a visitor can choose from hundreds of different wallpapers and patterns, or they can create something of their own and then instantly project them onto the walls around them.

 

And then of course there’s all the wonderful work that you’re doing outside of the museum that I am so proud of.  You’re sponsoring Teen Design Fairs and allowing kids to meet with experts, where they get feedback and they learn from some of the best in the world.  And you’re supporting budding designers with your DesignPrep Scholars program that’s in D.C. and New York.  And as usual, I got a chance to meet that group before I came into the room, and I want us to just take a moment — I want all those young scholars to please stand so that we can acknowledge you.  (Applause.)  Yay for you guys.  You can sit down now.  (Laughter.)

 

We’re very proud of you guys, and I’ve heard some really exciting things about the workshops earlier today and hopefully you all learned something too.  But here’s what I want you to think about — your mind, your creativity got you into the White House.  Remember that.  (Laughter.)  So you can do anything, all right?  This is pretty cool, right?  We’re very proud of you, and we’re proud of everything that Cooper Hewitt is doing.  Because the truth is, you all get it.  You really do.  You know that it’s not enough to simply celebrate the best design in America today, you know that we’ve got to really cultivate the best designers of tomorrow as well.

 

And it is an honor that during this special anniversary that we’re here at the White House that I’m able to thank you all once again for everything you do to make this world a better, more fun and interesting place, and what you’re doing to pass on that passion and imagination and commitment to our next generation.  It is truly a treat and an honor for me.  So thank you all, and congratulations.  (Applause.)

 

And now, it is my pleasure to introduce someone else who knows a thing or two about reaching out to our young people.  Under his leadership, the Smithsonian has used technology and educational programming to open up the museums, exhibitions and artifacts to more people than ever before — and my daughters are among those young people.  And while we are sad to see his time as Secretary of the Smithsonian end in just a few months, we’re pleased to have him here for this event one last time.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my dear friend, Dr. Wayne Clough.  (Applause.)

Update: Obama to speak at Northwestern University on economy

 

By Ms. LYNN SWEET

 

Updated from Monday…WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will deliver a speech on the Evanston campus of Northwestern University on Thursday, which will come after Obama headlines a fundraiser in Chicago for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn.

 

The last president to speak at Northwestern, according to the university, was President Dwight Eisenhower in 1954. Obama will deliver his speech at 1:15 p.m. at Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson St., on the Evanston campus.

 

“I am extremely pleased to announce that President Barack Obama will come to Northwestern’s campus in Evanston to make a major address about the economy and his plans to keep expanding opportunity for Americans,” said Northwestern President Morton Schapiro in a statement.

 

Obama arrives in Chicago on Wednesday evening. After spending the night — it’s not known whether he will go to his Kenwood home — Obama heads downtown for the fundraiser at the Gold Coast home of Meredith A. Bluhm-Wolf, the daughter of Chicago business honcho Neil Bluhm, a major Northwestern benefactor — in 2013 Bluhm, a law school alum, donated $25 million to Northwestern.

 

After the fundraiser, Obama heads to Evanston for the speech on the economy at NU’s Kellogg School of Management. White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer said in an email sent Wednesday that in the Northwestern speech, “the President will make the case for what has always fueled America’s leadership — and that’s America’s economic greatness. He’ll take a step back from the rush of current events to explain what we’ve done to recover from the Great Recession and what we need to do to ensure that more middle-class Americans feel that progress in their own lives.”

 

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at the Tuesday briefing that Kellogg was selected because  “this is one of the top business schools in the country and is an appropriate venue for a serious speech about America’s economy.”

 

On Monday, a Sun-Times videographer spotted military aircraft doing a practice run for the presidential visit at a parking lot near Soldier Field while other spotters in Evanston saw U.S. military aircraft landing on the NU campus lakefront landfill area.

Thank you Ms. LYNN SWEET

Obama to use Gary airport, not O’Hare or Midway after FAA fire

 

President Barack Obama will fly in and out of the airport at Gary, Ind., on Wednesday and Thursday, in the wake of flight delays still plaguing O’Hare and Midway airports following an arson fire on Friday damaging the FAA radar facility in Aurora.

 

Most of the cancelled and delayed flights on Tuesday were at O’Hare. Obama is flying to Chicago on Wednesday evening and departing Thursday afternoon after delivering a speech on the economy at Northwestern University in Evanston and headling a fundraiser for Gov. Pat Quinn on the Gold Coast in Chicago.

 

Obviously, O’Hare is much closer to the NU campus, but the White House did not want Air Force One and the president to get in the way of air traffic.

Obama’s stump for Quinn: President on Thursday, Michelle, Oct. 7

WASHINGTON — Gov. Pat Quinn is getting a double dose of help from the White House in his re-election battle; I’ve learned first lady Michelle Obama hits Chicago on Oct. 7 to headline a rally for the governor. She comes home after President Barack Obama stumps for Quinn in Chicago on Thursday.

 

Michelle Obama is stepping up her campaign activities — she is in Milwaukee on Monday for Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke — with a sharply focused mission: to turn-out “drop-off” voters who most likely will support Democrats.

 

Those are folks who voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and disappeared in 2010, when Democrats lost control of the House — with an assist from GOP Illinois congressional victories.

 

In 2014, activating likely Democratic drop-off voters is key to a Quinn victory.

 

“When you stay home, they win,” Michelle Obama said at a voter registration rally in Atlanta on Sept. 9.

 

She had a very similar message at a Democratic National Committee women’s event here on Sept. 18.

 

“Women, we don’t turnout for midterms. Minorities, we don’t turn out. We don’t have to convince anybody new; we just have to find us and get us registered,” Michelle Obama said.

 

Quinn is locked in a close battle with Republican gubernatorial nominee Bruce Rauner, and White House political director David Simas told me in May that the White House would be strongly helping Quinn.

 

In Illinois, the Democratic coordinated campaign, led by Quinn and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who also is up for re-election, analyzed the “drop-off” voter impact, starting at the 2008 high-water mark, when Obama first ran for president.

 

The Illinois Democratic study found two key facts that a source shared with me: About 1.6 million Illinois voters don’t vote in non-presidential years. And of that number, about 1.2 million are likely Democratic base voters — that is minorities, youths, young professionals and women.

 

The White House is delivering for Quinn in Illinois, the state where the first couple can be the most helpful because Illinois is where they generated a torrent of new voters in 2008 and 2012. Obama has low popularity ratings and is not stumping in some states where it would be counterproductive, but that’s not a factor in Illinois. In contrast, Michelle Obama is welcome everywhere.

 

Michelle Obama and Quinn have joined in a shared cause: helping military families. The first lady’s drive is called “Joining Forces.” On June 26, Michelle Obama was with Quinn in Chicago at the Calumet Armory when he signed a bill making it easier for military spouses to transfer their professional licenses to Illinois.

 

Michelle Obama on Sept. 18 said to female Democrats: “We need you to be even more passionate and more hungry because these midterm elections will be even harder and even closer that those presidential elections.”

 

President Obama hits Chicago Wednesday to stump for Quinn

 

WASHINGTON–President Barack Obama returns home to Chicago next Wednesday to campaign for Gov. Pat Quinn, a White House official told the Chicago Sun-Times. The Quinn event is on Thursday.

 

The president will spend the night in Chicago.

Celebrating Women’s Equality Day, 2014

 

President Obama Listens To Daughter of Secret Service AgentPresident Barack Obama bends down to listen to the daughter of a departing U.S. Secret Service agent in the Oval Office, Oct. 28, 2013. (Official White House Photo by Lawrence Jackson) 

Etched into the history of our Nation are the stories of women who fought for the America they knew was possible — a country where all are truly treated equally and have access to the ballot box, regardless of gender. It took generations of fearless women who organized and advocated to secure women’s right to vote, and on Women’s Equality Day, we honor these courageous heroes, celebrate how far we have come in the decades since, and acknowledge the work still left to be done.

 

In the 94 years since the 19th Amendment was certified, women have made strides in every facet of American life, and we have learned that our country succeeds when women succeed. More and more the world is looking to our daughters to lead us, to heal us, to employ us, to thrill us on fields of play, and to protect us on fields of battle. Even still, inequality and discrimination persist. Women, on average, continue to earn less than their male counterparts, and for women of color, the disparity is even wider. Outdated workplace policies force too many working parents to choose between fulfilling their family responsibilities, and the careers of their dreams. And far too many women know what it is to suffer from abuse or sexual assault.

Happy 98th Birthday to the National Park Service

 

 

From our spacious skies and fruited plains to our purple mountain majesties, the United States boasts some of the world’s most breathtaking natural lands. On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson created the National Park Service to formally protect and preserve these lands so people all over the world could experience America’s historic beauty and heritage for years to come.

 

Today, the National Park Service manages 401 national parks and memorials, which supported 238,000 jobs and pumped more than $26 billion into local economies last year. In fact, for every $1 we invest in our national parks, our economy sees $10 in return.

 

Take a glimpse at what the National Park Service has been working to preserve for 98 years, and follow the National Park Service and the U.S. Department of Interior on Twitter to see more of what makes America so beautiful.

Officer Wilson supporters: Government and media choosing sides in Ferguson
(CNN) – The funeral for 18-year-old Michael Brown Monday drew thousands, including celebrities, civil rights leaders, and a White House delegation.
But for those seeking justice for the officer who killed Brown, the service was seen as another example of how the government and media are unfairly choosing sides in that deadly confrontation.
This weekend, supporters of Officer Darren Wilson gathered outside a south city St. Louis bar, popular with local law enforcement.
“My name is Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson,” a woman said to a cheering crowd.

 

 

 

“There Will Be Justice”: Mourners Speak Outside Michael Brown’s Funeral in St. Louis

 

Published on Aug 26, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org – Thousands of people lined up to pay their respects at Michael Brown’s funeral on Monday in St. Louis, Missouri. The killing of the 18-year-old African American by a white police officer in Ferguson has sparked weeks of protest and conversations about race, both around the country and in the local community. Democracy Now!’s Aaron Maté was in St. Louis and spoke with mourners as they filed into the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church. “I know about Martin Luther King, I know about Emmett Till, but I am actually living something that should have stopped years and years ago,” says local resident Anne Hamilton. “We just want, as African Americans, to be treated fairly and to be given the same advantages.” St. Louis resident Elwood Harris responds to the protests, which have at times involved looting. “What else can we do? We took the Martin Luther King approach, protesting and peace, but there is no peace, and there is no justice,” Harris says. “But there will be justice in this case, I really do believe.”

Statement from National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice on the Release of Peter Theo Curtis

 

For two years, we have kept Peter Theo Curtis, a U.S. citizen held hostage in Syria, in our thoughts and prayers. Today, we join his family and loved ones in welcoming his freedom. Theo is now safe outside of Syria, and we expect he will be reunited with his family shortly.

 

Just as we celebrate Theo’s freedom, we hold in our thoughts and prayers the Americans who remain in captivity in Syria. Notwithstanding today’s welcome news, the events of the past week shocked the conscience of the world. As President Obama said, we have and will continue to use all of the tools at our disposal to see that the remaining American hostages are freed.

 

Today, the American people share in the joy and relief that Theo’s family feels, and we look forward to his safe return home. We will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of all Americans who are held overseas so that they can be reunited with their families as well.

 

 

From The Desk Of Ms Lynn Sweet:

 

Biden hits Chicago for fundraisers for Quinn, House Dems

 

SWEET (12)

 

WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden hits Chicago on Monday as 2016 presidential politics are percolating. If former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton does not run for president, Biden is the strongest alternative.

 

Biden’s day trip to the city is to headline fundraisers for Gov. Pat Quinn and the House Democratic political operation and to pitch a minimum wage increase with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

 

With her book tour wrapped up, Clinton sparks the next round of frenzy over her 2016 White House ambitions when she returns to Iowa on Sept. 14 for Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry. It’s her first trip back to the state with the leadoff vote for the presidential nomination since she lost the Iowa Caucus in 2008 to Barack Obama and John Edward.

 

Clinton picks her spots, so she knows that her Iowa trip will be seen as a sign that she is getting more serious about jumping in the presidential contest. No one sees Biden running against Clinton.

 

But if she doesn’t run?

 

I’ll get to that.

 

First, a rundown on what will be an active political day Monday in Chicago.

 

While Biden is helping Democrats, the Republican Governors Association chairman, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, is in the city to boost GOP nominee Bruce Rauner and keynote two funders: one for the RGA, the other to benefit Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill. Christie will visit Rauner’s Loop campaign headquarters though Rauner won’t be there — he’s taking one of his kids to college. Christie is often mentioned as a possible 2016 White House contender, even with the New Jersey bridge controversy hanging over him.

 

Biden flies to Chicago in the morning and his first event is a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at the John Hancock Center home of Scott Kluth, the founder of CouponCabin.com. The price points: $5,000 per person; $32,400 for couples.

 

Later, Biden and Emanuel head to the South Side for a roundtable with small-business owners to tout raising the minimum wage, a major agenda item for President Barack Obama that’s going nowhere in the GOP-controlled House. Emanuel is Obama’s former chief of staff.

 

The White House and Democrats continue to press, because this issue can help turn out Democrats in November. Emanuel, highlighting progressive causes as he faces a possible 2015 mayoral challenge from Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis, wants a city minimum wage increase.

 

Finally, Biden is the draw at a Quinn campaign $15,000 per person fundraising dinner for about 30 at the Lincoln Park residence of attorney John Cooney.

 

Now, back to 2016.

 

Clinton supporters have created several organizations to build a political infrastructure for her as she mulls her future. But since a Clinton run is not inevitable, some Democrats are visiting Iowa, just in case.

 

Former Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., spent some of last week in Iowa, making the rounds. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has been to the Hawkeye state, as has former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer. They are anonymous and dull political figures.

 

Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York are among those also mentioned as potential 2016 candidates if Clinton declines to run. Their political stock is up, but they just are not that well-known.

 

Democrats will be in a panic if Clinton walks away.

 

Biden can appeal to the progressive wing of the party at a time progressive populism is growing in influence among Democratic activists. Biden is union. Biden is empathetic. Biden is foreign policy.

 

Biden’s giant challenge would be to separate himself from the Obama administration because he is part of it. Clinton has already been in some of those dust-ups. Biden is keeping the 2016 door open. As well he should.

 

 

Dr. Jill Biden in Chicago to talk about military families

 

090921-A-8880P-0011

 

WASHINGTON–Dr. Jill Biden flies to Chicago on Monday morning with Vice President Joe Biden. While he is off at political stops, Dr. Biden will deliver remarks at a lunch with spouses of past and present Adjutants General of the Army and Air National Guard.

 

The lunch is a related event of the National Guard Association of the United States’ 136th General Conference and Exhibition taking place in McCormick Place. Dr. Biden’s remarks will reflect on the work she and first lady Michelle Obama are doing on their signature “Joining Forces” project, launched to assist military families.

 

Vice President Biden,  is traveling to the city for two political events, fundraisers, to benefit Gov. Pat Quinn and House Democrats and a stop billed as governmental, a joint appearence with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to tout raising the minimum wage.press. My column with more detail on what Biden will be doing in Chicago–and some mulling on his 2016 prospects if Hillary Clinton does not run is HERE.

 

Thank you Ms. Lynn Sweet, welcome back from vacation.
