Obama: Washington could do with less ‘Scandal’ – CNN Political Ticker – CNN.com Blogs

Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, ribbed the president for his schedule. “The fact is if the president weren’t so busy playing golf or pool, he would know the integration has been happening,” Gohmert told Fox News, referring to collaboration along the border between various Border Patrol and security officials. Obama did abandon one idea for the trip, however. The White House had been in touch with late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel about a presidential appearance on his show during the stop in Los Angeles, but is not going forward. “We elected not to do it this time, but hope we can arrange to do it in the near future,” a White House official said. But on the fundraising trail, Obama remains a potent draw among the Democratic Party’s wealthy donors, who pay up to $32,400 to be in intimate settings with the president. The fundraising highlight of the trip will be a Democratic National Committee event Wednesday at the Beverly Hills home of Shonda Rhimes, the producer of the ABC series “Scandal,” a drama set in modern-day Washington. Kerry Washington, who plays the lead role in the show, is among the hosts. So far this 2013-14 election cycle, Obama has attended 73 fundraising events for Democratic Party groups. During the 2009-10 midterm cycle, when Republicans won control of the House, Obama attended 98 fundraisers, according to CBS News White House reporter Mark Knoller, who keeps detailed records of presidential travels and events. Obama has outpaced his predecessor in fundraising, having attended 395 fundraisers during his presidency as of this week. According to Knoller’s statistics, then-President George W.

Should the contract expire worthless, the premium would represent a 1.40% return on the cash commitment, or 13.40% annualized – at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost . Below is a chart showing the trailing twelve month trading history for SPDR S&P Retail ETF, and highlighting in green where the $86.00 strike is located relative to that history: Turning to the calls side of the option chain, the call contract at the $88.00 strike price has a current bid of $1.08. If an investor was to purchase shares of XRT stock at the current price level of $87.23/share, and then sell-to-open that call contract as a “covered call,” they are committing to sell the stock at $88.00. Considering the call seller will also collect the premium, that would drive a total return (excluding dividends, if any) of 2.12% if the stock gets called away at the August 16th expiration (before broker commissions).

Obama Seeks Emergency Funds To Counter Border Surge – Nasdaq.com

Today, the U.S. only has one detention facility–in Pennsylvania–suitable for families, and it can hold fewer than 100 people. As a result, virtually all adults traveling with children are released and told to report to immigration court later. Minors have streamed across the border in record numbers in recent months, with more than 52,000 children arriving since the fiscal year began in October. The funding request faces a tough road through Congress. Many Republicans are skeptical about spending so much money, particularly if it is not offset with other spending cuts, and many Democrats resist a focus on jailing families and children, even if they entered the country illegally.

Kay Granger, will review the White House proposal, Michael Steel, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, said in a statement. The Speaker still supports deploying the National Guard to provide humanitarian support in the affected areaswhich this proposal does not address. And liberals are organizing to block the White House efforts to rewrite laws to make the deportation of child migrants from Central America less cumbersome. Under current law, unaccompanied minors from Central America are automatically referred to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services, which works to place them with family members already residing in the United States while they await a court date. Unaccompanied minors from Mexico, however, are treated differently, and can be screened for immediate return to their home country by U.S. Border Patrol if they do not present human trafficking or refugee concerns. There isnt really a policy rationale for treating them differently,a second White House official said Tuesday, arguing that the current system is allowing too many children to check this out stay in the U.S.
