Obama Plans Meeting With Russian LGBT Activists

Some how I don't think this is or should be a top priority Obama needs to be concerned about right now, do you?

I think the war going on or thats about to go on trumps Gay Rights, wouldn't you agree?

I'm also going to put a comment below this left on this story, that is laughable.
Put Obama and Pukin in the ring. Lol Settle this the old way. Pukin wouldn't know what hit him. 
President Barack Obama is planning to meet with Russian human rights groups, including LGBT activists, reportsBuzzFeed.
The meeting will occur during the G-20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel this Thursday. Confirmed attendees include leading human rights activists Lyudmila Alexeyeva and Lev Ponomarev; Pavel Chikov, the chair of Agora, a legal advocacy organization; and representatives of Coming Out, an LGBT nonprofit based in St. Petersburg.
This will be the first time the president will speak with LGBT organizations in Russia, which has caused a storm of controversy with the passage of antigay legislation, a ban on so-called homosexual propaganda.
Under the law, both foreigners and Russian citizens can be arrested for disseminating or promoting homosexuality or LGBT rights. LGBT foreigners could also be deported, and that includes athletes of the upcoming Olympic games.
Last month Obama canceled a one-on-one meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin scheduled during the G-20 summit due to the country's record on human rights, among other conflicts that have arisen, such as granting asylum to National Security Agency  leaker Edward Snowden.
The meeting was canceled due to a "lack of progress on issues like missile defense, arms control, trade and commercial relations, global security issues, and human rights and civil society," White House press secretary Jay Carney said, according to the Washington Blade.

So far, the hearing has been interrupted by three distinct protesters, each carrying pink placards. As with Senate hearings before, they are likely from the group Code Pink.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.
