A few headlines from world news yesterday:

In our competing headline from the same day, President Obama stayed focused on the threat:

Speaking of that, some Denver police weren’t happy with the expectation that they should serve as a backdrop to another Obama gun control speech.

Meanwhile, in the highly unlikely event Kim Jong Un should actually have the capability to take out Austin, Texas, Obama went on to make sure the Democratic Party was armed with plenty of cash:

Obama will attend two San Francisco fundraisers for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Wednesday.

The first fundraiser is a cocktail reception at the home of billionaire and clean energy advocate Tom Steyer. He and his wife Kat Taylor will host approximately 100 people at the event. Tickets cost between $5,000 and $34,200.

Steyer is a staunch opponent of the Keystone pipeline — a project that currently is being reviewed by the Obama administration. Steyer recently launched an outside effort against Rep. Stephen Lynch’s Massachusetts Senate candidacy — citing Lynch’s support for the pipeline.

Obama’s second fundraiser will be held at the home of Ann and Gordon Getty, where 75 attendees will dine with Obama. Tickets to that fundraiser cost $32,400 per person.

The event is an annual fundraiser on behalf of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. The fundraiser raised $1.7 million in 2012.
