Last night in Washington DC the mandatory Mooch Obama school nutrition standard was set aside as our rulers dined on something a little more, well, exotic:
But don’t worry, in the event the unwashed peasants had any difficulty understanding how the .0000001% live on taxpayer financed opulence, head grifter in charge -Valerie Jarrett- was there to broadcast descriptions of the magnificence to the lesser class:

And before anybody says anything like “they’re tone deaf“, let me assure you the Alinsky clan is NOT. This crew know exactly what they are broadcasting – and that knot you feel is specifically and antagonistically intended to “burn”. Their visceral response to your outward anxiety is laughter.
With Charlie Rangel in the audience to point a race-baiting crooked finger into your chest and dare you to take issue with it:
Meanwhile, in a world President Obama intentionally detaches himself from, two men work diligently to try and deconstruct a terror network without any hope of assistance from the now dimly lit -but meticulously manicured- beacon upon a hill.
EGYPT – Diplomatic sources told Al-Mayadeen TV on Tuesday that Israel had “initially accepted” four demands- while rejecting three others- of the joint Palestinian paper of demands for a ceasefire in Gaza Strip.
Tel Aviv rejected the Palestinian demands of re-opening of the Gaza airport, establishment of a seaport and guaranteeing the existence of a connection between the West Bank and the war-torn enclave.
On the other hand, the Israeli delegation approved ending the offensive on Gaza, lifting the blockade, granting fishing rights up to 12 nautical miles off Gaza’s coast and releasing Palestinian prisoners.
Last Sunday, Palestinian representatives have agreed on a single list of demands to be discussed during Cairo talks to end the month-long Israeli aggression on the enclave.
The pan-Arab channel provided no further details on the rest of the Palestinian demands.
Other demands include lifting the Israeli-imposed no-go zone near the Gaza border fence, opening institutions and restoring confiscated public and private properties, ending aggression against Palestinians by Israeli settlers and reconstruction of the strip.
Members of the Palestinian delegation, headed by Azzam Al-Ahmed of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, include Ezzat Al-Rashq, Mohamed Nasr and Mousa Abou Marzouk of Hamas, Ziyad Nakhala of Islamic Jihad, Quis Abdel-Kareem of the Democratic Front, Maher Al-Taher of the Popular Front and Bassam Al-Salehi of the People’s Party, in addition to Maged Farag, head of Palestinian intelligence.
Leading Islamic Jihad member Khaled El-Batash and Hamas members Khalil El-Haya and Emad Al-Alami arrived from Gaza on Tuesday to join the Palestinian delegation in Cairo for ceasefire talks, Palestinian sources told Egypt’s state-owned MENA news agency.
Those officials had failed to leave Gaza earlier this week and attend the beginning of the Egypt-held negotiations due to continued Israeli shelling.
Egypt mediated a 72-hour truce on Tuesday between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian factions that officials hope will lead to further talks and a more lasting end to the Gaza war.
Israeli ground forces withdrew from the Gaza Strip ahead of the truce, with a military spokesman saying the main goal of destroying cross-border infiltration tunnels had been achieved, Reuters reported. (read more)
Egypt, with President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi as President, has banned Hamas, an affiliate of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood of former president Mohamed Morsi.
Cairo directly and specifically accuses Hamas of collaborating with Morsi to plot “terrorist attacks” inside Egypt to advance the terrorist causes of the Muslim Brotherhood and institute a Sharia compliant state.
Egyptian police have cracked down brutally on the Brotherhood, killing more than 1,400 of its supporters in street clashes since Morsi’s ouster in July 2013.
The army has also destroyed more than 1,600 tunnels that connect Egypt’s restive Sinai Peninsula with Gaza, and which militants have used to smuggle weapons and consumer supplies to blockaded Gaza.
Against the backdrop of military pressure from Israel into Gaza and el-Sisi cutting off the Gaza Tunnels into Egypt, the radicals within Hamas and The Brotherhood are being summarily deconstructed.
With only Qatar and Turkey on their side, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority recognize their tenuous new reality. Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt are now aligned with Israel to remove the radicals. This strategic alliance against radicalism is the ONLY reason Hamas has arrived in Cairo.
Just like Syria, ISIS marching through Iraq, Iran gaining nuclear weapons and the exploding civil war in Libya, the U.N., John Kerry, President Obama and the entire EU construct are irrelevant to the outcome at hand.
But hey, they’ve always got Lionel Richey….
