“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Who is Desiree Rogers? She says Obama wants her to make White House, the house for all people. She sure did!

The woman in charge of supervising the guest list for state dinners quit in June after she was stripped of most of her responsibilities. Cathy Hargraves, the former assistant for arrangements, says that Obama’s social secretary, Desiree Rogers, took away her responsibilities and that, had she been present, she’d have likely been at the entrance supervising the guest list.

Chicago's Own Desiree Rogers to Blame for Crashergate?
Security lapse may be due to Rogers' forcing out the guest list manager

Fingers are starting to point to Chicagoan Desiree Rogers, President Obama's social secretary, for letting Michele and Tareq Salahi slip by security at the front gate of the White House last week.

The couple, who were seen mugging with Vice President Joe Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel – not to mention shaking the President's hand – might never have gotten into the party if Rogers hadn’t stripped the woman whose job it was to vet such people of her power.

Cathy Hargraves, who resigned last June, was personally responsible for overseeing the invitations of state dinner guests and keeping track of their RSVPs. She also physically stood at the gate during functions and cross-checked names against a master list.

The Salahis gained entry to the White House despite not being on such a list.

When Rogers came to the White House last, she stripped Hargraves, a Bush-era holdover, of those responsibilities. "In these economic times," Hargraves told Newsweek, I don't think we're going to have very many lavish expensive dinners. It wouldn't look very good."

The Secret Service has since apologized for the security lapse, possibly removing some of the burden from Rogers' shoulders. But at least one Republican lawmaker wants the social office to endure its share of scrutiny.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY), the ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee has called for a congressional investigation into what happened -- and he wants the social office, and, by association Rogers, included.


  1. We've got morons running things.


  2. Here is the Commander in Chief, responsible for the security of The United States of America. He is making decisions on missile defense, Iran, Afghanistan and internal US security.

    His justice department makes decisions that affects the lives of millions of American citizens.

    With all the power and money available to the POTUS, he cannot control his own White House as to who comes and goes.

    Feeling secure yet?

  3. Last I heard just now, the Seattle cop killer is thought to still be alive, and getting aid 'from family and friends'. Those folks may not know it, but they are giving comfort and aid to a fleeing felon, a felony in itself, least around here, I believe. Even if they had no clue he was going to do what he did. More than one is likely to be arrested, and charged.

  4. Barack Obama got into the White House without a background check, why not these two bozos?

    Bobal, if this jackass kills another cop, everyone who aided his escape will be accessory to murder. They are already aiding and abetting a fugitive, and that's hard time too.

  5. I could see it in their eyes this morning, in an interview, and they were saying, "We weren't invited to that party, we're risk takers and wanted to see how far we could take an adventure without getting caught. The rush of walking into the White House and shaking hands with The President without being on "the list" was second best to having an orgasm."

    That's just my opinion.

  6. Everybody[url=]porno tv[/url] heard rumours [url=]hardcore porno[/url] about women[url=]family sex porno tube[/url] faking orgasms. Is that true? The majority of women have [url=]free mature videos porno[/url] faked at least one orgasm, yet some fake almost all of them. Why do they do that? There[url=]free porno online[/url] are many reasons and the case is that there's [url=]sex on the beach porno tube[/url] no one to blame.
    The most [url=]xxx porno thumbnail pictures[/url] common are two [url=]homemade porno videos[/url] reasons: they[url=]world porno teen 2000[/url] don't want to make their partners feel bad [url=]all moms free porno videos[/url] or they are tired and just want to end sex. Most females say that their partners ar[url=]pov free porno pictures sun[/url] e not satisfied until the[url=]free gay porno movie clips[/url] girls feels orgasm, there's only one way to make them feel happy and stop the[url=]home porno movies[/url] exhausting procedure - fake.
    Another [url=]videos porno on line[/url] reason is that a[url=]free gay porno hub[/url] typical female [url=]free shemale porno videos[/url] doesn't seek for orgasm; she desires a sexual [url=]free gay porno boys[/url] relationship only because she wants intimacy. Still, such an attitude may make her partner feel bad. [url=]porno young girls[/url] The only way out is to [url=]xxx mature porno[/url] fake it out.
    [url=]free animal porno[/url] Some women never really experience orgasm while making sex, but they want their partner to feel good about himself and her. Men usually expect women to have pleasure, that's why females have no other choice. They have to fake to have a good relationship.
    Loss of interest, having sex only because the partner wants to, also makes women to fake. Most females talk to their friends about such things and while they know other women act it, they do so too, because it's an easier way to have a good relationship.

  7. In biology, sex is [URL=]brother and sister have sex[/url]
    a process of combining and mixing [URL=]porn sex movie[/url]
    genetic traits, often resulting [URL=]sex and the city 2 movie trailer[/url]
    in the specialization of organisms into [URL=]free interracial sex pics[/url]
    a male or female variety (known as a sex). Sexual reproduction involves combining specialized cells (gametes) to form offspring [URL=]real amateur office sex[/url]
    that [URL=]girl sex with animals[/url]
    inherit traits from both parents. Gametes can be identical in form and function (known as isogametes), but in many cases an asymmetry has evolved [URL=]top celebrity sex tapes[/url]
    such that two sex-specific types of gametes (heterogametes) exist: male [URL=]teen girls having sex together[/url]
    gametes are small, [URL=]brother sister anal incest sex stories[/url]
    motile, and optimized to transport their genetic information over a distance, while female gametes are large, non-motile and contain [URL=]my first sex teacher mrs. cannon 2[/url]
    the nutrients necessary for the early development of the young organism.
    An organism's sex is [URL=]anal sex tubes[/url]
    defined by the gametes it produces: males produce male [URL=]milf interracial sex[/url]
    gametes (spermatozoa, or sperm) while females produce female gametes (ova, or egg cells); individual organisms which produce both male and female [URL=]college girl sex[/url]
    gametes are termed hermaphroditic. Frequently, physical differences are associated with the different sexes of an organism; these sexual dimorphisms can reflect the different reproductive pressures the sexes experience.
