The Obamas arrived in Tuscany on a private plane escorted by six fighter jets and a 13-car motorcade on Friday as they continue their all-expenses-paid world tour. Barack and Michelle Obama will have an entire 14th century village to themselves during their five-night stay - at an eye-watering cost of $15,000 per night. Not that the couple are likely to have paid, as it´s owned by the ex-president´s former ambassador to Italy, John Philips. On Friday, the former president and first lady touched down at Grosseto Air Base in Tuscany, their private jet accompanied by six Eurofighter Fourth Wing jets. The couple where
13 Cars, 6 fighter jets? While Obama chastises others about monetary and environmental restraint and responsibility, this ostentatious and vulgar show of extravagance and hypocrisy by he and his wife should be highlighted as the real scandal.
Apologies for a second post. #4 & 11 Maybe the kids are no longer useful and given back to the real parents. Shouldn´t little Sausage be finishing school shortly? Strange time to take another vacation.
He´s way past "Movin on up" and even beyond "The Fresh Prince of BillAyres" now. He´s like a Boy Pharaoh being carried aloft on these royal entrances in a procession of peacocks and nubian maidens twerking and booty-popping a path before his royal entourage.

You know what? The Obamas travel in style to the poshest accommodations around the world. But none of it belongs to them - it´s rented digs at the pleasure of someone far richer. Trump can visit his OWN posh accommodations that he financed and built himself. That is a huge difference and one the media won´t discuss.
The Peter Principle is being stretched to its limits. You have a bastid hippy child from a drunken Kenyan father and a white trash girl from Kansas, a black girl from Chicago who writes at a middle school level, living the royal life on stolen money and having their worthless hides protected by fighter planes and armored cars. The entire world is being scammed by this pair of fake human beings. All because big-eared barry could read a teleprompter well enough to fool democrats.
Who pays for this motorcade??? He is not entitled to this. Clinton when out of office did not traipse around with such an entourage! The former ambassador who was gay must have been an old friend from his Turkish bath days! I forgot, the Obamination was only ´considering´ being gay!
Let´s see, Italy was going broke, the welfare-supported population was threatening to revolt over "austerity measures" right around the time Obama was passing out trillions of dollars in stimulus money. A good pope was replaced with an incompetent socialist.
Barry shouldn´t you be home writing your book? Or is Bill Ayer´s writing another one for you. It´s only fair you should share the $60 million with him. These two can´t get enough of parties and vacations, nothing changes for them. They are now collecting from their millionaire friends all the favors he did for them when he was supposed to be President.

NAPLES, Fla. - Hurricane Irma’s leading edge bent palm trees and spit rain as it swirled toward Florida with 120 mph winds Saturday on a projected new track that could expose Tampa — not Miami — to the storm’s worst fury.

A perfect storm of climatic conditions turned Hurricane Irma into the monster that is currently wreaking havoc on the Caribbean and headed for the US mainland. Unusually warm ocean water in the Atlantic, high atmospheric pressure and weak wind shear have combined to fuel the category five tropical cyclone. Wind speeds of 250 kph were recorded as it hit land in Barbuda yesterday morning, before instruments broke. With ocean winds reaching sustained speeds of 183 mph (295 kph), this makes Irma the strongest storm to ever form over the Atlantic. For Irma to not only gain its strength but subsequently
Hurricane Irma — with its ferocious 185 mph winds — made landfall in the Caribbean early Wednesday, slamming into Barbuda and Antigua as it headed for Puerto Rico. Cuba and South Florida were still in Irma’s projected path into the weekend. The catastrophic Category 5 storm, the most powerful Atlantic storm on record, is expected to bring strong storm surges and up to 20 inches of rain in some places. Irma is moving west-northwest at 16 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center’s advisory at 5 a.m. Wednesday, with the track shifting slightly to the east. The Bahamas government has issued a hurricane warning

A Royal Navy rigid-hulled inflatable boat chased off a Spanish Guardia Civil boat in UK waters off Gibraltar. It did so after the Spanish patrol boat Rio Belelle cut across USNS Carson City as it entered Gibraltar this morning. Gibraltar Coast Watchers founder Michael J Sanchez said: ´Nothing better to ruffle Spain´s feathers that a visit of a U.S. Navy ship to Gibraltar...very irresponsible and reckless move by the Spanish vessel.´ MailOnline have contacted the Foreign & Commonwealth Office for a comment. USNS Carson City is the seventh Spearhead-class expeditionary fast transport, currently in service with the Military Sealift Command. It was launched
We were talking about the crisis in Tel Aviv, where thousands of infiltrators have taken over parts of the town, when my friend said it’s just as bad here in the United States, except that these invaders were brought here legally. “There’s more than one Linda Sarsour,” he said. “Thousands. Maybe millions.” For him – and for many others – it’s personal. Marv has two kids going back to college in a few weeks and he fears for their safety. “In my day,” he said, “the college years were the best of times.” Not so in our day. His two kids aren’t saying
President Donald Trump finally got some face time with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the two men hadn´t spoken for weeks. Trump hosted McConnell and other leaders of a group known as the ´big six´ to discuss tax reform. If was the first time the two men had spoken since an angry phone call where Trump reportedly complained about the Russia investigation, following McConnell´s comments to his constituents that Trump was still learning about the pace of the Democratic process. McConnell was seated at Trump´s left during the meeting, with House Speaker Paul Ryan on his right. During a June meeting, it was

A Democrat congressman is threatening to subpoena the White House over a draft of a letter President Donald Trump wrote regarding firing former FBI director James Comey. Adam Schiff, the ranking representative of the minority members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said he believes there could be evidence to support that the president attempted to obstruct justice in his reasoning for Comey´s ousting. Schiff, who represents California, told CNN host Dana Bash: ´It´s probably far past time for our committee to subpoena the White House to make sure we get all relevant documents.´ The House Intelligence Committee has requested notes,
North Korea´s latest nuclear weapons test has renewed fears of a devastating electro-magnetic pulse, or EMP, attack that could wipe out electrical grids across the US. For the first time, North Korea specifically mentioned the possibility of an EMP attack on the US following Sunday´s test of a 100-kiloton weapon, which the regime claims is a thermonuclear bomb. The weapon could wipe out much of a city, but the pulse from a high-altitude blast could sow chaos and destruction far wider. North Korea´s state news agency warned that the weapon ´is a multifunctional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated
It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020. The Democrats face many obstacles in this effort, but the greatest threat is the fierce internal divisions within the party. Two of the leading prospective presidential candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have begun national fundraising operations. Former Vice President Joe Biden has been busy building a national email list to communicate directly with his supporters, and Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) has already announced his presidential candidacy. The Democratic Party does not just need a new leader, but a new
Sexual harassment investigations at Fox News had on-air hosts coming and going on Friday. The network has cut loose Eric Bolling, who was suspended on Aug. 5, and has also canceled his daily program “Fox News Specialists.” The law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, investigated allegations that Bolling used his cellphone to send unsolicited photos of male genitalia to current and former female colleagues at the network. The firm has been handling harassment claims at the 21st Century Fox unit. “Fox News Channel is canceling the ‘Specialists,’ and Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably,” a Fox News
On the same day that Fox News announced that it had “agreed to part ways amicably” with suspended conservative host Eric Bolling, Bolling’s son Eric, Jr. was found dead in Boulder, Colorado. (snip) A strange anomaly in this story is that Yashar Ali, the HuffPost freelancer who wrote the August 4 article alleging that Eric Bolling was guilty of inappropriate behavior years earlier, claims to have been the first one to break the news of Chase Bolling’s death. For example, in a HuffPost article on September 9 time stamped 2:31 P.M. E.T., Hayley Miller writes “Yashar Ali, the HuffPost freelancer
Keep these numbers in mind: 316 to 90 and 80 to 17. They were the lopsided votes in the House and Senate in support of the deal President Trump made with Democratic leaders on storm aid, the debt limit and government funding. Remarkably, all the no voters were Republicans. The numbers shout that we are witnessing a potential turning point in the Trump presidency, one that could further shake up Washington and rattle the calcified political parties. Frustrated by the failure of GOP majorities in both chambers to pass his agenda, Trump followed through on threats to work with Democrats. Signs suggest it was
The news that President Trump abandoned Republicans to strike a deal with congressional Democrats on a three-month extension of the debt limit yielded a predictable response from his predictable cheerleaders: It was brilliant and typically shrewd for the author of “The Art of the Deal” to take the very first offer the Democrats made and ask for nothing in return. Less obsequious observers on the right claimed this was the long-prophesied moment. The seventh seal had been broken. Donald Trump was “pivoting” at last. “The pivot is real and it’s spectacular!” proclaimed Ben Domenech, the publisher of The Federalist. In the lexicon
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said in an interview broadcast Sunday that while she is "done" being a candidate, she is not leaving politics. "Is your political career over?"

A lawyer in Texas who disagrees with the Trump administration’s plan to reform how accusations of of sexual assault are adjudicated on campus said he would “be ok” if Education Secretary Betsy DeVos were sexually assaulted. Rob Ranco, a partner at the Carlson Law Firm, suggested Mrs. DeVos does not fully grasp how serious of a crime rape is, and that she might come to a different policy conclusion if she did. “I’m not wishing for it… but I’d be ok if #BetsyDevos was sexually assaulted,” Mr. Ranco said in a tweet on Friday evening. “Perhaps Betsy doesn’t understand how
Hillary Clinton takes yet another dig at Donald Trump in new new memoir, saying the ´flagrantly sexist´ candidate won the 2016 election. Clinton´s memoir settles scores with a range of competitors and opponents, while providing unsparing language for Trump, who Clinton complains stalked her on a debate stage to the point where it made her ´skin crawl´ and she wanted to say ´back up, you creep.´ In another excerpt reported by the New York Times, Clinton says sexism ´played a role´ in the election where she suffered a historic defeat. ´This has to be said,´ Clinton writes. 'Sexism and misogyny played a role in the 2016
President Trump´s administration has sided with a Christian baker who refused to make a gay couple´s wedding cake because he claimed their marriage went against his religious beliefs. Forcing Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver, to bake a wedding cake for two men would be a violation of his constitutional rights, the Department of Justice declared on Thursday. The baker is challenging a Colorado law that says he was wrong to have turned away Charlie Craig and David Mullins, who wanted a cake to celebrate their nuptials in 2012. Phillips refused because his religion does not support
Fraud is rampant and “huge” for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a former official with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency alleges. Under DACA, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens were given temporary protected status and work permits to remain in the United States. Experts have told Breitbart Texas that during the Obama Administration, background screening was lax. In an interview with LifeZette, former USCIS manager of the agency’s investigative unit, Matt O’Brien, alleged that the fraud rate for DACA is roughly “40 to 50 percent” and potentially even “higher”: “Based on what I had seen and what I
Hillary Clinton’s continued obsession with inflicting herself upon a public that told her to go away almost a year ago is now giving agita to those who used to be close to her. According to Politico, the Democrats are sweating her impending book tour. President Donald Trump may be the only person in politics truly excited about Hillary Clinton’s book tour. Democratic operatives can’t stand the thought of her picking the scabs of 2016, again — the Bernie Sanders divide, the Jim Comey complaints, the casting blame on Barack Obama for not speaking out more on Russia.
