Amid scandals, White House announces star-studded concert in East Room
Amid sequester and scandal in Washington, the White House announced Friday that the president and first lady will be hosting another concert as part of their “In Performance at the White House” series later this month.
The event will be held in the East Room of the White House and honor singer and songwriter Carole King, who will be awarded the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. King will be the first woman to receive the award, the White House noted in their announcement.
The program — to be streamed on the White House website and broadcast on PBS stations the evening of May 28 — will also feature performances by Gloria Estefan, Billy Joel, Jesse McCartney, Emeli Sandé, James Taylor, Trisha Yearwood and King herself.
In 2002, Carole King sang “You’ve Got a Friend” for Cuban dictator Fidel Castro at a warming-relations dinner in Havana.
“The Gershwin Prize commemorates George and Ira Gershwin, the legendary American songwriting team whose extensive manuscript collections reside in the Library of Congress,” the press announcement explains.“The prize is awarded to musicians whose lifetime contributions in the field of popular song exemplify the standard of excellence associated with the Gershwins.”
Past winners of the Gershwin award have included Stevie Wonder in 2009, Sir Paul McCartney in 2010, and Burt Bacharach and Hal David in 2012.
“Carole King: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize In Performance at the White House” will be the eleventh “In Performance at the White House” program that Barack and Michelle Obama have hosted.

Trashy quote-You forgot Little Teddy's software company (Nazca) that took $500,000 from the City of Minneapolis
Trashy quote-He stole $550,000 from the citizens of Minneapolis when his software company failed to deliver on the contract.
REALITY-Though the county has paid $314,000 to Nazca Solutions Inc.

BOEHNER: Well, no, he didn’t want the cuts, but uh, uh, oh, we have the sequester as a result of his demands. And I, uh, told my colleagues in the House that the sequester will stay in effect until there’s an agreement that will include cuts and reforms that will put us on a path to balance the budget over the next ten years.
Speaker Boehner has been trying to blame President Obama for the sequester for months, but sequestration is a Republican idea (long-touted by their budget “hawks”), which was presented as a last ditch option to the Republican’s taking the country hostage over the debt ceiling.
Yet Boehner admits that the President didn’t want the sequester cuts.

Isn't it interesting that all the programs allegedly affected by the sequester, created, submitted and signed by the white house, are all of the ones that tug at the heart strings.
Yet, DHS has tons of money available to purchase more ammo than they can even use. NSA has plenty of funding to spy on American citizens. And yes, there is lots to go around for gala events.
This administration (along with the last several predecessors) is a complete disgrace. And with each new election cycle, it gets progressively worse. All three branches are lost to greed and corruption.
