How incompetent is the Moron in the White House? Pretty funny when 4 out of 6 Middle Eastern rulers don't show up..... My guess is that the kings and princes heard that the Secret Service was not going to be their escort service anymore.


Middle East

Rulers of most Gulf nations to miss Camp David summit hosted by Obama
Published May 11, 2015
·FoxNews.com

The White House was scrambling Monday to put a positive face on an upcoming summit of Persian Gulf states after learning leaders from four of the six invited nations are expected to skip.

While those nations are still sending representatives to the summit being hosted by President Obama later this week at Camp David, the absence of crucial heads of state -- notably, Saudi Arabia's new king -- could present an awkward situation for the administration.

In a statement Sunday, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Thursday's summit coincides with a humanitarian cease-fire in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is fighting Shiite rebels known as Houthis. He said Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, who is also interior minister, would lead the Saudi delegation and the king's son, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is defense minister, will also attend -- but the king would not.

Obama had planned to meet Saudi Arabia's King Salman one-on-one a day before the gathering of leaders at the presidential retreat. The White House, though, did not present his decision to skip the summit as a sign of any substantial disagreement with the U.S.

Eric Holder’s Friday memo to DOJ staff: Don’t hire prostitutes

By Adam B. Lerner
| 4/10/15 5:03 PM EDT


Attorney General Eric Holder had a friendly reminder for Justice Department employees before the weekend: don’t solicit prostitutes.

In a letter released to all department staff on Friday, Holder wrote that he “want[ed] to reiterate to all Department personnel, including attorneys and law enforcement officers, that they are prohibited from soliciting, procuring, or accepting commercial sex.”

He is not incompetent. He is accomplishing exactly what he has set out to do.

He has alienated all countries with at least a modicum of Western civilized thought, and made huge concessions to the countries that hate us. He has run up trillion dollar deficits. He has encouraged lawless behavior within our own borders. He ignores the Constitution whenever it suits him. Et cetera.

And, this nation thinks that he is so great that we reelected him.

Have a nice day.

On the surface, it certainly appears to be a diplomatic slight by some of the region's ruling class, but OTOH - diplomatically speaking - those aren't "light-weights" attending on behalf of the Saudi government and it could be more of a sign that the new king still has his work cut out for him to secure his position within his own kingdom and among his Arabian Peninsular peers right now than some willfully orchestrated political cold shoulder directed towards the US.

Just something to consider - but with this circus, who ever knows for sure...

Is it a greater honor to go first or last?

Don't forget, the Saudi's(Not my favorite country) are fighting a war in Yemen against Iran. Also, who knows what kind of shenanigans are going on behind the scenes in the Saudi Royal Court.

This, he is taking this country down. That was his plan from day one and he is accomplishing it.

King of Bahrain skips meeting to see Michelle Obama look-alike(s) with Queen Elizabeth.

Clearly our divider-in-chief's ME policies are earning their respect.
