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.

Kissing babies and posing for selfies, politicians leave no opportunistic stone unturned on the campaign trail. Whether its necking a pint in a pub or donning a hi-vis jacket with pride, our public servants are certainly enthusiastic in their quest to reach out to new voters. Which may explain why Theresa May animatedly appears in a newly-released Hindi music video. The two-minute film, accompanied by a song, shows the incumbent Prime Minster exploring the country barefoot wearing a sari. Its namesake Theresa Ke Saath translates as Together with Theresa, incidentally making use of one of her favourite words.
An estimated 20 cats have died after allegedly eating toxic cat food with dozens more understood to be critically ill. Cat owners have been showing up at vet clinics with their animals suffering from ´neurological damage´ which they claim was caused by Best Feline Friend canned food. The Australian Veterinary Association confirmed a series of complaints had been laid about the product and are investigating. Spokeswoman Rena Richmond said the neurological damage is possibly linked to the toxicity of pet food or deficiency. ´If your cat is exhibiting signs such as strange head or eye movements, wobbling, repeated circling or
Native American soldiers speaking in their own tongue helped the Allies win World War I. The original code talkers, the Choctaw and Cherokee, used their languages as indecipherable codes that the Germans could not solve. Their linguistic heroism came at a time when the United States government tried to eradicate their languages as part of a forced assimilation. And only by chance did an unidentified captain overhear two men in the 142nd Infantry Regiment speaking in their mother tongue, around the time of the Meuse-Argonne Offensive on the Western Front. At first the two men – identified in some accounts as Solomon Lewis
President Donald Trump is condemning the fatal stabbing of two good Samaritans trying to aid two young Muslim women as an avowed white supremacist harassed them in Portland, Oregon. Trump tweeted Monday: ´The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. Our prayers are w/ them.´ The attacks came on a light rail train last Friday, the first day of Ramadan, the holiest time of year for Muslims. Police identified the dead as 53-year-old Ricky John Best of Happy Valley, Oregon, and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche of Portland. Mayor Ted Wheeler said Best
MI5 has reportedly launched two urgent inquiries into how it missed the danger posed by the Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi. It comes amid claims he was repeatedly reported to the authorities. One review was started last week, which will aim to quickly identify any glaring errors, while the other will be more in depth, the Guardian has learned. The home secretary refused to comment on Sunday on whether opportunities were missed to spot the 22-year-old´s deadly terrorist intentions. Abedi, whose parents come from Libya, is thought to have received terror training in the country before returning to the UK just days before
A crowd of Muslims gathered on an Australian street to condemn terrorism in the wake of the Manchester attack. The group of Islamic men stood on a path in the middle of the Perth CBD in Western Australia wearing t-shirts that read: ´I am a Muslim, ask me anything´. Imam Kamran Tahir - who is an Ahmadiyya Muslim - stood alongside other Islam adherents while wearing the shirts in a bid to ease the fear surrounding the Islamic faith after the suicide bombing in Manchester. isconceptions about the faith The Perth man shared images of himself and fellow Muslims outside of the Murray
A memorial dedicated to soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan and Iraq is using 7000 boots to honor their legacy and service. The display - in its third year of existence - covers the recreation field at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and was created by Survivor Outreach Services (SOS). Retired Army veteran and Fort Bragg employee, Mike Thomas, has made it his mission to connect families unable to see the memorial with their loved ones. Last year, the former servicemen made a post offering to take a photo of any boot and send it to that soldier´s family and while the
FORMER SAS soldiers and ex-special forces troops are being shipped out to Spain’s tourist hot spots amid fears Islamic State could attack British holidaymakers. The former elite soldiers are set to patrol beaches as well as hotel grounds disguised as tourists in a bid to protect British sun seekers as they holiday in the Iberian country. Intelligence reports have indicated ISIS could be planning a repeat of the 2015 attack in Tunisia when 30 British holidaymakers were gunned down on a beach in north Africa. Areas of mainland Spain as well as the Canary Islands and the Balearic islands, which includes popular
Lindsey Graham says James Comey ´needs to be held accountable´ if he interfered in the election over ´fake information´. The South Carolina Senator spoke to Dana Bash on CNN´s State of the Union about reports Comey acted on Russian intelligence concerning the Hillary Clinton email scandal, even though he knew the information was false. ´I´m not so sure the email that Comey relied upon was fake, but I can tell you this, he never briefed the Congress, the Judiciary Committee, about any fake email,´ Graham said. ´What he told the intelligence committee about this email, he never suggested it was fake, so if
A chemical engineering student and his brother were being held over the Manchester terror attack last night as Amber Rudd admitted that members of the bomber’s network could still be at large. University students Mohamed and Yahya Werfalli were arrested in the early hours of Saturday - hours before Theresa May lowered the UK’s terror threat level from critical to severe. The brothers, who like other suspects are British born but of Libyan heritage, are believed to move in the same friendship circles as the Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, also 22. Yahya is listed on Facebook as a friend of
Authorities in Mississippi say a suspect is in custody after eight people were killed in a shooting, including a sheriff´s deputy, after an apparent domestic argument over children. Lincoln County Sheriff Steve Rushing said the suspect is Willie Cory Godbolt, aged 35. He was captured Sunday morning shortly before 7am at Super Jack´s at East Lincoln Road and Hwy. 84, Rushing said. While sitting on the ground in handcuffs surrounded by law enforcement officers, Godbolt told the Clarion-Ledger of his intentions. He said he was talking with his wife and members of her family when someone called authorities. ´I was having a conversation with
Donald Trump is considering a massive overhaul of his White House staff that would see top strategists from his campaign brought back into the fold. The president´s reported plan is the result of his growing frustration with what he views as his team´s inability to contain the burgeoning crisis involving alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. A Trump adviser told the Wall Street Journal: ´Everything is in play.´ One of the changes expected is an expansion of lawyers and experienced public relations experts to better deal with the seemingly constant stream of revelations about Moscow´s interference in the election and potential improper
A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one. Another spoke to DailyMail.com
Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists said. That’s because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Saturday that he would make his “final decision” this coming week on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged Trump
After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her
Angela Merkel has stunningly claimed Europe can no longer rely on the US, just one day Donald Trump frustrated world leaders at the G7 meeting in Italy. The German Chancellor urged the European Union to stick together in the face of new uncertainty stemming from the US and other challenges. Merkel said Sunday at a campaign event in Bavaria: ´The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days.´ The comments came after the G7 countries were unable to agree to a deal that would see the 2015
(Video) Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the public was “getting weary” that Democrats have not done enough to begin the process of impeaching President Donald Trump. Partial transcript as follows: REID: Congresswoman, on the subject of being more aggressive, you have openly talked about the fact that this president has put himself in a position where impeachment is on the table but your party, the Democratic party is very reluctant, The New York Times has an article out last week about how hesitant Democratic leadership, in particular, are to call for Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Tiger Woods was arrested and charged with DUI in Jupiter, Fla., records show. The professional golfer, 41, was nabbed around 3 a.m. Monday on Military Trail just south of Indian Creek Parkway, according to WPBF 25 News. He was released under his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m., Palm Beach County Sheriff´s Office records show.
Hillary Clinton’s inner circle is concerned that the “resistance” that cropped up in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral win isn’t embracing the failed Democratic Presidential candidate as their de facto leader. As of late, Hillary has taken to marketing herself as the leader of the anti-Trump resistance, Tweeting about her defeat, haranguing Trump in public appearances and “persisting” despite her loss. It’s clear from Clinton’s Twitter feed, paid speeches, and comments that she wants to lead the mostly female opposition to Trump’s policy agenda. But according to sources close to Clinton’s inner circle, she’s yet again failing in
French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged to a French newspaper that his intense handshake with President Trump ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels "wasn´t innocent," but instead was meant as a show of resolve, The Associated Press reported Sunday. "One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP. The handshake between Macron and Trump on Thursday drew attention for its visible intensity, with both pairs of knuckles turning white from pressure. [snip] While Macron reportedly sought to convey strength with the
It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most
The sun has set on students’ request to change the date of their prom. Students at an elite New York City high school petitioned to change the date of their senior prom – scheduled for June 3 – because it conflicts with the Muslim observance of Ramadan, but the school has denied the request, the New York Post reported. (Snip) Still, Muslim students said eating after sundown is not the only issue; they say there are other religious rules that come into play. “You’re not supposed to listen to music during Ramadan, so it’s not really allowed,” Shabbir said.

CNN’s W. Kamau Bell devoted a recent episode of his series United Shades of America to exploring Muslim and Arab communities. Aside from some interesting vignettes, the program is left-wing, anti-Trump propaganda that firmly establishes the network’s political bias. Bell also serves up some historical distortions of the sort spoonfed to undergraduates on politically-correct campuses, such as the claim that Islam has always been present in the U.S. “Islam has always been part of the American fabric,” one Muslim man in Detroit tells Bell at an anti-Trump event. “A lot of people think that Islam is from a foreign country,
I know it’s theoretically wrong for a Republican candidate to smack around an annoying liberal journalist, but that still doesn’t mean that I care. Our ability to care is a finite resource, and, in the vast scheme of things, millions of us have chosen to devote exactly none of it toward caring enough to engage in fussy self-flagellation because of what happened to Slappy La Brokenshades. Sorry, not sorry. Please split wide headlines
