7 Responses to Moving Truck Spotted Outside White House

  • I would rent a truck and help them move out for free. In fact, I’d pay to do this.

  • Wonder what kind of “electronics” are being moved out (or in ) by Quality in Electronic and Office Moving by Moving Masters, Inc.

  • IF the current administration has politicized the intelligence community as rumored, who can Trump trust to sweep the place. Apparently Barry and Michelle, the girls and Valerie Jarrett will be living in an uptown DC mansion. If the younger daughter is still in high school I can understand staying until she graduates….but Valerie Jarrett? Sounds like a command post for the DNC. Please just go away.

  • Off topic…a prayer request for my younger son L.in his early thirties that God willing, he will enroll and attend a four year university this month. He’s been accepted as a transfer student in a three schools with instate scholarship offering the energy engineering major.he has the pre-reqs for. His order brother has offered with no strings attached to use his savings to pay off the younger one’s debts. His father and I and his older brother have heard nothing from him. Today maybe the deadline to fish or cut bait for life altering decision.. Thank you.

  • Just the first of several trucks to remove Obama’s massive ego from the place.

  • Tacky.

    Not to say inaccurate in the least, if anything a bit too on target. As is CAM’s note about sweeping for bugs or “jokes.”

    CAM- done.

  • Foxfier, Thank you.

Harry Truman’s Ghost Letter

Thursday, October 31, AD 2013

A suitable topic for Halloween.  Harry Truman, soon after he became President, wrote a letter to his wife in which he referred to ghosts in the White House:


June 12, 1945

Dear Bess:- Just two months ago today, I was a reasonably happy and contented Vice-President. Maybe you can remember that far back too. But things have changed so much it hardly seems real.

I sit here in this old house and work on foreign affairs, read reports, and work on speeches — all the while listening to the ghosts walk up and down the hallway and even right in here in the study. The floors pop and the drapes move back and forth — I can just imagine old Andy and Teddy having an argument over Franklin. Or James Buchanan and Franklin Pierce deciding which was the more useless to the country. And when Millard Fillmore and Chester Arthur join in for place and show, the din is almost unbearable. But I still get some work done.

Hope the weather lets up and you will be able to do some work on the house. The Gibson boy should have been taken care of long ago. I’ll see what’s happened. I’m not able to do as many things for my friends now as I did when I was just a dirty organisation Democrat and a County Judge.

Guess you and Helen will have a grand time. Hope you do. We are working on Dr. Wallace. Glad everybody was in his right mind at the family party. Undoubtedly they were walking the straight and narrow for your mother. But I’m sure you had a nice time anyway.

That address mixed up is causing me some embarrassment (if that’s the way you spell that blushing word.) I addressed a letter to you at 4701 Conn. Ave. Independence Mo., and another one 219 North Delaware, Washington, D. C. Now it seems I sent one to the Rolands. The boys in the House here didn’t catch that one but they did the other two.

I’ll have Reathal attend to the chores you suggest. I haven’t seen her but twice since you left. She comes in after I go over to the office, usually goes out to lunch and doesn’t come back until I am gone again and then goes home before I get over here.

Had Charlie Ross and Rosenman to lunch yesterday. We worked on my San Francisco speech. ,that date is postponed until next week now on account of the slow wind-up and Gen. Eisenhower’s visit.

Write me when you can – I hope every day.

Lots of love.

  • What a nice letter! Bess Truman must have written well, also, for him to have been looking forward to daily missives.

    Wonder whether anything’s going on tonight – if they are there.

Well, at Least Spell my Name Right

Tuesday, August 4, AD 2009


Hattip to DrewM at Ace of Spades HQ.  This from the White House Blog:

“There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to [email protected].”

I trust that some of the Obama supporters who frequent our site will draw the attention of the White House to a few of my posts regarding ObamaCare on this blog.  When you do please remember that the last name is spelled McClarey, not McCleery, McClaren, McClary, etc.  Thank you!

Update I: Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has some pointed comments here about the sheer political stupidity of the White House making this public call for informants.

  • Hey, maybe the Obama admin will revise the Homeland Security alerts, now that we know we have nothing to fear from terrorists. Maybe something along these lines:

    Level Red: The Great Leader is more popular than Jesus, the Beatles, and Michael Jackson combined. This is how it should be.

    Level Green: A few grumblings are heard from disgruntled rednecks in fly-over country. Nothing to worry about, really, but keep your eyes open.

    Level Orange: Uh, oh. The peons are doing a lot of grumbling and booing at town hall meetings and there’s a quite a bit of seemingly fishy information (cunningly planted by Fox News) out there on the Net. Couric, CNN, HuffPo, you know what to do.

    Level Purple: Lord, the fish is now a great big dead rotting whale on the WH lawn. Comrades Dowd and Krugman, fire photon torpedoes!

    Level Gray: We’re screwed. We have now crossed the River Styx and are in Jimmy Carter territory.

  • Thank you Donna! That was the funniest bit I’ve read on the net today!

  • There will be some who quickly point out that Bush did the same thing at times. He DID, for instance, ask that truckers keep an eye out for the unusual in their cross country treks.

    But theres a whale of a difference between trying to stop terrorist acts and trying to ferret out political dissenters.

  • Huh… wonder if I can do a diving expedition to the KOS kids’ playground and send in some of their defenses….

  • Pingback: Obama Homeland Security Alerts « The American Catholic
  • I have an idea: who wants to join me in flooding that email address with “flags” about the fishy positions Obama’s been taking with regards to abortion’s role in this health care plan?

    If we flood it, we can take it and Obama’s Big Brother mentality down.

  • It’s been almost 24 hours since you posted this and I’m disappointed. I was hoping to see a trackback saying, “Dan McCleary at the Catholic American has a good post about…”

  • Don’t know about anyone else, but this was about the 15th post on my RSS feed about the snitch program.

  • And I’m reporting them all to my Staatssicherheit commander!

  • When you do please remember that the last name is spelled McClarey, not McCleery, McClaren, McClary, etc.  Thank you!

    Isn’t one “Mc” the same as any other? *wink*
