Maybe they converted the area into a mosque for Ramadan, and want to shield it from the eyes of infidels/s;)

Someone in Virginia fried bacon.

They’ve sealed the west wing so no “pollutants” enter.

The Sauds have been calling it, sneeringly, “The White Tent” for years. So they finally went ahead and did it.

Word on the street is that GSA has started painting the White House a new color. It is reported that the new House will be more of a dark brown = the color known as “Al Sharpton Cocoa”
They are painting sections at a time.

Someone on FR posted about an evacuation in D.C. a few nights ago. I honestly cannot recall if it was the White Hut or not, but I do recall him saying there was a bit of chaos...It was a vanity at the time I visited the thread and now I can no longer find it (should have self-pinged myself on that thread).

Any connection with the news item the other night about the “electrical fire” nearby and the subsequent evacuation of a bunch of hotels?

Maybe the “electrical fire” hotel evacuation was a diversion so they could get something else delivered/set up/installed.

And the white tarp is now hiding it.

Has the American royal family, or its entourage, been to New York City lately? During the last few months while Bloomberg has been increasing cigarette taxes, eliminating trans-fats and inviting the Muslims to build a mosque near the WTC site the bedbugs have been taking over Manhattan at the Abercrombie & Finch and Victoria’s Secret locations. If the bedbugs are in the clothing locations only the lord knows how many New York City sleeping locales have them.

Don't forget many upscale and lowbrow hotels and the CNN offices in Manhattan.

White House to get $376M renovation
First extensive update since Truman era
Comments

May 22, 2010

GANNETT NEWS

From the linked article-

“The price tag is more than 100 times the total cost of building the White House in the 1790s, Bloomberg reports.

Congress approved funding for the project in 2008 after some of the systems in the White House were deemed to be approaching the end of their “reliable productivity.”

Neither the AP or Getty saw fit to report the renovations in their images.

Pathetic. : o /

The article link references upgrades/replacements to the “heating, cooling, electrical and fire alarm” systems.

Renovation of the White House took place during the Truman Administration (1948-1952):

http://www.trumanlibrary.org/abierowe/whitehse.htm

This was a major renovation, in which the 1790 White House was gutted and rebuilt from within.

It is strange, and certainly even more strange that the press is silent about this since they would be directly affected.
