As the weather heats up in Washington, DC, the Obamas as planning their summer vacation.
The Boston Herald reports that President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia will be staying on Martha’s Vineyard from August 8-23.
The Obamas have spent almost every single summer on the tony island off the coast of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod except for 2012 – when the president was running for re-election.
Continuing yet another tradition of their annual retreat, the Obamas are also expected to stay at the same $12million ‘cottage’ in Chilmark they rented last year.
Update to this story. Some people did try to come to his aid, but the majority seemed to think it was just hilarious.

Disturbing video has surfaced online showing an unconscious man being mocked and laughed at by onlookers after he was beaten to a bloody pulp by a gang of youths.
“Yea, n***a, you just got knocked the f*** out!” one of the spectators can be heard saying, as the rest of the unruly mob howls in amazement.
“Someone please call 911,” the group chants jokingly, in reference to a Wyclef Jean song featuring Mary J. Blige.
“You just got knocked the f**k out, b***h!” another man reiterates, before being shooed away by a disgusted bystander who tells him, “That s**t ain’t cool, bruh, y’all tripping.”

Subway spot about to become jail spox?

Federal authorities raided the home of famed Subway pitchman Jared Fogle early Tuesday morning.
Fox 59 reported that state and federal investigators were serving warrants at Fogle’s home in Zionsville, Indiana.
The raid comes after Russell Taylor, the former director of Fogle’s foundation, was arrested on child pornography charges in May.
When Newsom was the Mayor of San Francisco in 2008 he thought it was a good idea to use almost $100K in taxpayer funds to advertise their “sanctuary” status to draw illegals in.
Well, that’s because you’re Jimmy Carter.
Former president Jimmy Carter opined on HuffPost Live that he believe Jesus would approve of gay marriage, noting that it was just his “personal belief.”
The one-term Democratic president noted that he was opposed to abortion, because he did not believe Jesus would approve. “Would Jesus approve gay marriage?” asked host Marc Lamont Hill.
“I believe he would, I believe Jesus would,” Carter said, before cautioning, “I don’t have any verse in scripture…”
Infuriating to say the least.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi has defended his office’s decision to release a Mexican man who was in the U.S. illegally and who is now suspected in the killing of a woman at a sightseeing pier.
Mirkarimi said that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency should earlier have issued an arrest warrant for Francisco Sanchez.
“ICE knew that he had been deported five times,” Mirkarimi said. “You would have thought he met a threshold that he required a court order or a warrant. They did not do that.”
Prosecutors on Monday charged Sanchez with murder in the death of Kathryn Steinle, who was shot and killed last Wednesday as she and her father took a walk on the popular Pier 14.
Steinle’s killing has brought criticism down on this liberal city because Sanchez had been deported repeatedly and was out on the streets after San Francisco officials disregarded a request from immigration authorities to keep him locked up.
San Francisco is one of dozens of cities and counties across the country that do not fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The city goes so far as to promote itself as a “sanctuary” for people in the country illegally.
In a jailhouse interview with a TV station, Sanchez, a 45-year-old repeat drug offender, appeared to confirm that he came to the city because of its status as a sanctuary.
“Most of the blame should fall squarely on the shoulders of the San Francisco sheriff, because his department had custody of him and made the choice to let him go without notifying ICE,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, which wants tougher immigration enforcement.

Officials say a 29-year-old man who caused a motor vehicle accident that nearly killed an Arizona family on Independence Day is an illegal immigrant who has been deported six times.
Sheriff’s deputies in Maricopa, Arizona, say Manuel Perez-Vasquez was under the influence of drugs when he drove head-on in the opposing lane of traffic on a road in the town about 30 miles south of Phoenix, Fox10Phoenix reported.
A woman and her two small children were traveling toward Perez-Vasquez when the mother noticed him driving in the wrong lane.
“She sees a car coming head on… so she immediately pulls over as far as she could off the side of the road and this car still comes and sideswipes [her]… totaling her car,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told the station.

Iraqi media reported on Tuesday that 45 Islamic State fighters died after eating a Ramadan fast-breaking meal in the city of Mosul in Iraq.
Citing the spokesman of the Kurdish Democratic Party, reports said that it was unclear if it was a case of deliberate poisoning or food poisoning.
According to the Kurdish party spokesman, 145 ISIS fighters participated in the iftar meal, and 45 of them died a short time later.
Mosul, which had a population of over 1 million people, was captured by Islamic State fighters in June and is the largest city in the group’s self-declared caliphate, a stretch of territory that straddles the border between northern Iraq and eastern Syria.
This was not the first time ISIS reportedly suffered casualties as a result of poisoned food. In November, dozens of ISIS fighters died after Free Syrian Army militants infiltrated their base in Syria, posed as chefs, and poisoned their lunches, British media reported at the time.

The Hillary Clinton campaign held a “Poetry Slam for Civic Action” this weekend that featured a transsexual singer wondering what Fourth of July means to transgender people and poetry celebrating Malcolm X and racial violence.
The Clinton campaign’s Poetry Slam For Civic Action, held Sunday night at The Writer’s Block bookstore in Las Vegas, sought to stress “the importance of being civically involved and how you can play a role in electing Hillary as the next President of the United States!” according to the campaign.
Transgender poetry reader “Jazmynne,” identified by The Daily Caller as transsexual singer and entertainer “Lady Jazmynne,” performed at the event. Jazmynne was promoted by Hillary For Nevada as “dropping some deep words about transgender issues.”
Not the first time we’ve seen this absurd claim.

Only 19 percent of American adults know that the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights guarantees the freedom of religion, according to a new survey by the Newseum Institute.
Only 10 percent know the First Amendment guarantees the freedom of the press.
And 33 percent of Americans have no idea at all what rights the First Amendment guarantees.
The First Amendment says: “Congress shall make no law resepecting an establishment of religion, or abridging the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
The Newseum Institute survey conducted by Dr. Ken Dautrich, president of the Stats Group, interviewed 1,002 American adults from May 14 through 23. The survey had a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points.

More than two months after Baltimore erupted in rioting, teams of police and federal investigators are still combing evidence in a hunt for those responsible for the destruction and looting.
The Baltimore Police Department has formed a task force to identify suspects, while the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Drug Enforcement Administration have called in additional agents to handle the work.
“The cases are particularly important because many of the people who were involved in committing these crimes acted with the assumption that they had impunity,” said Rod J. Rosenstein, the U.S. attorney for Maryland. “There is a sense of urgency.” […]
More than 200 people were taken into custody and held in jail for close to two days under an emergency rule imposed by the governor, but half had to be let go because police had not filed charging papers. They joined 35 who were arrested when protests downtown became violent April 25.[..]
Among them is Wayne Gray, who said he took his 2-year-old son to a protest in April. Representing himself recently in District Court, Gray, 47, wondered aloud how he had ended up in front of a judge while many fellow protesters had gone free.
Called to testify, Officer Garfield O’Toole, a member of the Police Department’s SWAT team, described a chaotic scene during the protest at Pratt and Howard streets.
A large crowd had gathered, and officers formed a long line. O’Toole’s team was ordered by commanders to pull three individuals back from the crowd and they were taken to a police transport wagon.
Gray noted that there was a large crowd and asked the officer, “Why just me?”
Officer Israel Villodas, another member of a tactical extraction team, testified that many in the crowd did not move even as orders to disperse were coming from the police helicopter and officers with bullhorns on the ground.
Judge Jack I. Lesser found Gray guilty of disorderly conduct and imposed a 10-day jail sentence. Gray begged not to be taken into custody right away, saying he needed to make arrangements for his son to be picked up from day care, move the car he drove to the courthouse and get his medications.
Lesser ordered him sent straight to jail.
“I made a mistake and misinterpreted my constitutional right,” Gray said as he was handcuffed by sheriff’s deputies.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson declined to say Monday whether cities offering “sanctuary” to dangerous illegal immigrants are posing a safety threat in the United States, just days after a criminal alien who was given sanctuary in San Francisco shot and killed a California woman.
Johnson was asked if the death of Kathryn Steinle last Thursday proved that sanctuary cities were part of the problem when it comes to removing dangerous immigrants. But Johnson didn’t answer directly, and instead said generally that the federal government is slowly starting to work more effectively with state and local governments on deportation matters.
“In my view, this type of situation highlights the importance of the direction where we are headed,” he said when asked about the California murder.
Johnson explained that many local jurisdictions were “resisting cooperating” with DHS under its Secure Communities program, which was aimed at deporting criminals behind bars. DHS replaced it in November with a new prioritized list of deportable aliens.

A Memphis professor who left her job under a cloud after a series of racist tweets and Facebook posts has resurfaced at a school across town, where some of her new faculty peers are not happy to have her as a colleague.
Zandria Robinson, who taught sociology at University of Memphis until resigning on June 11, had previously posted on Facebook and Twitter that she did not want her daughter attending school with “snotty privileged whites,” apparently ramped up her social media rhetoric after leaving the job. In a series of tweets that began June 26, nine days after white racist Dylann Roof gunned down nine African Americans in a Charleston, S.C., church, Robinson wrote that “whiteness is most certainly and inevitably terror” and said she expected to see “thinkpieces about how more mental health services could prevent white people from acting how they are conditioned to act.”
Officials at Rhodes College announced Robinson’s hiring last week, and praised her for her “provocative” comments, some of which were first reported by the website SoCawlege.

The Christopher Columbus statue in the North End was vandalized yesterday — with red paint dumped on its head and “Black Lives Matter” emblazoned on its base — in a defacing that left one local leader frustrated the cherished site was used for protest.
“For someone who was in the neighborhood, I certainly sympathize with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ discussions,” said state Rep. Aaron Michlewitz. “But, I think there’s a better way to get your point across than to vandalize public property — even with the complexities that surround Christopher Columbus’ history.”
Daunasia Yancey, founder and lead organizer at Black Lives Matter Boston, said her group wasn’t behind it, but “we fully support it.”
The Boston Parks Department found the defaced statue early yesterday morning, and it was quickly cleaned up.
