Obamas Left The White House A Mess:
Leaky Faucets, Chipped Paint, Failing
Heat, Crumbling Steps, Etc.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama openly shared her disdain for life inside the White House. She even went so far as to demean it as a house “built by slaves” and that residing there was like “living in a cave.” Perhaps that has something to do with the fact the People’s House is now literally crumbling in disrepair as outlined today by the AP: Besides the replacement of the West Wing’s heating and cooling system, repairs are also to be made to the steps on the South Portico, the side of the White House facing the National Mall. Cosmetic upgrades, including interior

The WH is in such bad disrepair the President has to move out for 17 days. It´s not a vacation. (Who, by the way, takes a vacation in New Jersey?)

I believe the WaPo recently published an article the purpose of which was to prove Trump, despite claims otherwise, had accumulated more vacation than Obama, siting in particular this NJ "vacation." That the WaPo is trying to portray Trump as a lying hypocrite and Obama as hardworking should be no surprise. What would be a surprise is if anyone - anyone - believed a word of it. The WaPo has become what Mary McCarthy said of Lillian Hellman, "Everything she writes is a lie, including ´and´ and ´the´."

I hope Trump will demo the Wookies Vegetable garden and restore the site to its original state. I´m sure that the money spent on that symbolic experiment was in the millions and that the cost per pound of harvested crops was more than the price of gold.

The is very much in keeping with normal style of helpful maintenance and care contributed by most of those who live in public housing.

Trump will do the repairs and upgrades without even thinking twice. It´s what he does for a living and a damn good habit.

Leave things better than you found them.

It´s another one of those ´Old White Man´ things, I guess.

I am always eager to cast aspersions at the Obamas, but this stretches even my credulity. Do they not have maintenance staff and a budget for the White House upkeep?
Did the ever-feckless Barack personally order them to ignore leaks, crumbling steps, and inop HVAC? I doubt he even noticed. He had people for that.
It is customary for new tenants at #1600 to paint and recarpet, I believe.

Anyone who owns a home knows that maintenance must be ongoing (i.e., all the time) or the place can quickly fall into disrepair. Imagine, then, the old White House with what goes on there. Most of it is a public building with offices and meeting rooms and traffic going in and out and through.

We saw the Obama family Super Bowl party with food all over the furniture, and undoubtedly more than a few feet as well. We saw Obie habitually put his feet up on furniture including the Resolute Desk. Those are signs of people who have not been brought up to respect, take care, preserve, maintain. I’ve made lame jokes about Mooch having to look for her wighats in the pile on the closet floor, but that may not be far from the truth. The lord and master was known by friends in Chicago to have littered his office carpet with peanut shells.

And don’t forget those wild parties with entertainer friends who danced on the tables.

Pressed pants, designer clothes, cool, whatever, this was a slovenly crowd.

In case any so-called journalists read this site, here´s a brief historical fact about the White House and it´s upkeep during Truman´s time. We didn´t use slaves in 1949 Michelle. Idiots.

The White House Reconstruction, also known as the Truman Reconstruction, was a comprehensive dismantling and rebuilding of the interior of the White House between 1949-1952. A century-and-a-half of wartime destruction and rebuilding, hurried renovations, additions of new services, technologies, an added Third Floor, and inadequate foundations brought the Executive Residence portion of the White House Complex to near-imminent collapse. In 1948 architectural and engineering investigations deemed it unsafe for occupancy and President Harry S. Truman, his family, and the entire residence staff were relocated across the street. For over three years the White House was gutted, expanded, and rebuilt.

BUT (big ´But´) I doubt they collectively ever spent one minute thinking about details. Some politically chosen aide would have supervised maintenance and repair. Follow that budget!

What has probably not been reported is that Trump has been out of the WH every weekend to accommodate construction crews and engineers. I had read that Obama delayed the construction, leaving it to next man to deal with (typical Den kicking the can down the road) and that Trump
was expected to be in Blair house for six weeks. Being familiar with construction, I am guessing he arranged a different schedule, vacating on weekends and now for almost three weeks. Of course, the MSM has portrayed it as "Trump has played more golf than Obama."

The CEOs who fled President Donald Trump following his response to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last week have a history of importing foreign labor. Intel Corporation The most obvious importer of foreign workers via the H-1B visa and outsourcer of American jobs is Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who left Trump’s now-defunct American Manufacturing Council, Breitbart Texas reported. Since 2013, the Intel Corporation attempted to import more than 8,000 H-1B workers. At the same time, as Breitbart News reported, the company under Krzanich’s direction laid off 12,000 Americans last year. (Snip) IBM IBM CEO Ginni Rometty explained in great length why

President Trump is pictured looking out over a Guam graveyard cluttered with crosses in a photoshopped image from the newest propaganda film -- and grim warning -- from North Korea. The regime followed the video with a statement posted through its KCNA news agency, saying Trump "spouted rubbish" and frequently tweeted about "weird articles of his ego-driven thoughts" and attacking South Korea´s "puppy-like" Defense Minister Song Young-moo for "pinning hope on that mad guy." But the picture of a graveyard believed to be in Guam may be the most rattling in the video, given dictator Kim Jong Un´s repeated threats to strike

Lee.

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

There’s been a considerable amount of solid debate on whether the U.S. should withdraw all troops from Afghanistan and just watch to see what happens from the outside. Against this backdrop President Trump is anticipated to call for a firm commitment to the region, perhaps adding 4,000 U.S. troops. President Trump will give a prime-time address to the nation at 9 p.m. tonight to detail his view of the U.S. role in Afghanistan, and the continued presence held. However, the majority of President Trump’s speech is now anticipated to be a ‘big picture’ overview with an accompanying public outline of expectations

An interesting article in the Washington Times poses a possibility of President Trump holding a deconfliction summit with North Korea –SEE HERE– And that begs a question of whether or not it’s actually plausible. I would state unequivocally yes, and here’s why. If you have followed the foreign policy pattern of President Trump you immediately recognize he does not restrain himself to DC political customs or DC political norms. Indeed as Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi optimistically noted, President Trump can accomplish many things because he brings a unique perspective to the world of policy and diplomatic engagement.

An Ohio judge was shot Monday morning outside his courthouse in an ambush attack that ended when the judge and a probation officer returned fire, killing the attacker, authorities said.

In a strange twist, the shooter was identified by authorities on Monday afternoon as Nathaniel Richmond, father of one of the two teenage boys found delinquent — or guilty — in 2013 as part of that rape case.

Two months after the USS Fitzgerald’s June 18 collision with a freighter in the Sea Of Japan, the Navy announced that the ship’s commanding officer, executive officer, and senior enlisted man were being relieved of their positions. It cited “loss of confidence” in them, and released a lengthy report on what happened aboard the ship after the collision. That report, however, contains no hint of accusation of improper or insufficient behavior on anyone’s part. It is silent about what actions on the part of the Fitz led to the collision in the first place, citing “continuing investigation.” But the indisputable

When a diagnosed schizophrenic who’d been prescribed antipsychotic medicine plowed into a crowd of “peaceful protesters”—who were, in fact, illegally blocking a street—and killed a woman in Charlottesville, VA on August 13, the perpetually self-discrediting establishment media seized on this incident as proof that Donald Trump and all his supporters were murderously violent Nazis. Last week when Trump held a press conference and stated the truth—that there had been violence on “both sides” in Charlottesville—the ideology-blinded establishment press screamed bloody murder. When a female reporter asked him to denounce the Alt-Right, he flipped the script: OK, what about the Alt-Left that came charging

Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald.

“There must always” be a flow low-skilled immigration to the United States, no matter its impact on American workers, according to Republican establishment figure Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). Flake slammed the idea of potentially cutting legal immigration levels in half to raise the wages of American workers and end the current low-skilled oriented system to make only admit immigrants based on their skills and merit in a New York Times op-ed. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced the specific plan, known as the “RAISE Act.” President Donald Trump endorsed the plan and said the legislation “will reduce poverty, increase

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Sunday gave a strong endorsement to the movement for removing monuments to leaders of the Confederacy and called for the electoral college to be abolished. Speaking at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jackson blamed the electoral college system, giving disproportionate influence to less populated states, for the 2000 and 2016 loss of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton despite their winning the popular vote. “Today we are looking at a structural problem,” Jackson said. “These monuments must go. Calling for the audience to repeat, he said, “Say the monuments and the flags

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it

Thanks to Monday´s solar eclipse, disastrous traffic jams have been taking over the country these last few days.

And with Oregon being the first to see the eclipse, it and neighboring state Washington are experiencing the worst bouts of the traffic jams. ´This is the biggest transportation event that has ever hit Oregon,´ Dave Thompson, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation told AP.

Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helm released a list of “requests” to white people in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month. Helm, the so-called “cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville,” explained in an article published at Leoweekly.com the things she says need to “change.” “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty,” Helm writes in an article titled “White people, here are 10 requests from a Black Lives Matter leader.” White people are asked, “Give up the

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

A Texas college campus removed four statues of prominent Confederate figures in an overnight sweep, according to reports. The statues of Gen. Robert E. Lee, Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston, Confederate Postmaster General John H. Reagan and former Texas Gov. James Stephen Hogg were each taken down from the campus’ Main Mall in an operation beginning just before midnight and continuing through the early morning, KSAT 12 reported. “Last week, the horrific displays of hatred at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville shocked and saddened the nation,” University of Texas President Greg Fenves said in a statement. “These events make

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Students at Howard University, a top-rated historically black college in Washington D.C., took to social media to express their anger over a group of white high school girls wearing pro-Trump clothing who visited the campus on Saturday. Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
