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

I´d say the 0bamas are the most successful grifters in all of history, not to mention frauds. However, there is competition from the Clintons.

So the Italian government doesn´t mind spending a few Euros for the flight time of six fighters for the grifters? Must be nice.

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.

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.

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.

A Donald Trump supporter punched a protester in the face after he hit him with a placard during a rally in Hollywood over the weekend. Violence led to two arrests at protests in Hollywood, California, on Saturday as anti-Trump protesters and supporters of the president held rallies in the same location. Shocking footage shows the moment one Trump supporter floored a demonstrator after he was hit in the face by the man´s large sign. It came after the two men had a confrontation, in which both could be heard shouting ´f*** you´ as several onlookers watched. Several protesters broke up the fight after

President Donald Trump tweeted a statement Wednesday wishing McCain well. ´Melania and I send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, Cindy, and their entire family,´ the president tweeted. ´Get well soon.´ In an earlier statement released by the White House, Trump said: ´Senator John McCain has always been a fighter. ´Melania and I send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, Cindy, and their entire

BRITISH officials will jet to the US next week to lay the ground for a post-Brexit trade deal, in a major boost for Theresa May. US and UK officials will meet in Washington on July 24 and 25 to “prepare ground” for a future trade deal. It will be the first meeting of the US-UK trade and investment working group, with “commercial continuity” also on the agenda. The meeting was confirmed by a US official, who said Theresa May’s International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will be present.

Trump said in a surprise appearance before the commission that he authorized a national review of the nation´s ballot boxes in response to allegations of fraud, ´sometimes having to do with very large numbers of people in certain states,´ that supporters came to him with during his Oval Office campaign.

As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was also anti the Magnitsky Act, the policy that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya lobbied against during her meeting with Donald Trump Jr and other campaign aides at Trump Tower. And as a presidential candidate, Clinton tried to make sure her early position on these sanctions weren´t connected with a speech her husband gave in Moscow in 2010, according to Fox News, which earned ex-President Bill Clinton $500,000. ´With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC´s opposition to the Magnitsky bill [to] a $500,000 speech that WJC

A retired chief of the Australian Defence Force has claimed Australia will soon be invaded, warning of the increasing tensions in the Asia-Pacific region. Admiral Chris Barrie has said the conflict happening now is similar to the conditions that led to World War 1. ´Australia is plunging headlong into catastrophe and we are utterly unprepared,´ he said in an analysis published by ABC News. ´The time-bomb is ticking and it will explode in our lifetimes.´ The parallels with First World War - Britain the dominant power, Germany the rising and aggressive challenger - are obvious.

A few days ago we spoke about President Trump’s style of leadership, which is to keep your opponents guessing. Never tell what you plan to do next. That was about the “settlements” and Trump’s advice to Israel to build but to quit yapping about it ahead of time... which only energizes Israel’s enemies. Tipping your hand is the worst sort of diplomacy whether it’s poker or politics – and now let’s talk about moving the United States Embassy to Jerusalem. My guess – and actually it’s more than a guess – is that President Trump will get it done. But he will get

The State Department is expanding its definition of ´close family´ to include grandparents and other relatives that constitute a bona fide U.S. relationship for visa applicants and refugees from six mainly Muslim nations. In response to a federal judge´s order last week, the department on Monday instructed U.S. diplomats to consider grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces and first cousins to meet the criteria for applicants from the six countries to receive a U.S. visa. Those had been omitted by the department after the Supreme Court partially upheld the Trump administration´s travel ban in June. Under the rules applicants

Manchester mosque has been significantly damaged in a suspected overnight arson attack. The Manchester Nasfat Islamic Centre on Droylsden Road caught fire late on Sunday night. Emergency services were called at around 11.40pm and around 30 firefighters worked to tackle the blaze, which is now being treated as suspicious. Images taken by witnesses show flames coming from the roof of the building, lighting up the sky and surrounding houses. A spokesman for the centre said there was no one inside at the time, and that they received a call in the night to say ´it was being attacked´. The exact cause of the

The Humiliation Of Jeff Sessions- There is something more than a little jarring in the ongoing humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In an ill-timed, ill-focused interview with the NYT, President Trump revisited his disdain for Sessions, his first, most-ardent and most-loyal supporter in the Senate. When supporting Trump was still considered career suicide, Sessions donned the red cap anyway. Maybe it will prove fatal for Sessions’ career, after all. The president has not made a secret of the fact that he blames Sessions for the scandal that now engulfs the Trump administration, claiming in

WASHINGTON — President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.” In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and

The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting. Officers Noor and Harrity had been called to Damond’s home after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault happening

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe. The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe. FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said Wednesday. The tumor was discovered after the senior Arizona senator underwent a minor procedure last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. "Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot," the hospital said in a statement. “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation."

We just learned that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is in a battle against brain cancer. Yet, he´s not letting that stop him from still speaking his mind on foreign policy. Reports suggest that President Trump has ended a CIA program to arm and train anti-Assad rebels in Syria. The senator said that is unacceptable and used it to suggest the Trump administration has yet to offer a comprehensive plan on Syria. He also predicted that Russia will be huge fans of this development, since they want to see Bashar al-Assad remain in power.

Bill Nye “the Science Guy” said Wednesday that significant action on climate change will be possible once the climate skeptics and deniers of older generations die off. Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the 61-year-old TV host was asked to comment on a recent Pew survey that revealed 58 percent of Republicans and right-leaning Independents believe higher education has a negative effect on the country, a number that spiked significantly during President Trump’s rise to power. Mr. Nye said people are just scared of the truth. “It just sounds like people are afraid,” he said. “And the people who are

Health Reform: There were lots of celebrations on the left side of the aisle after the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare died. The good times will be short lived, because one way or another ObamaCare is going away, and it´s not at all clear that Democrats will gain additional leverage over what comes next by waiting for its collapse. It was amusing to hear Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say, after the Senate bill failed, that Republicans should "work with Democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long-term stability to the markets and improves our health care

Arizona Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer. The 80-year-old veteran politician was given the diagnosis last week after he had a blood clot removed. In a statement late Wednesday, doctors reveal that McCain has been diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer. The statement says the 80-year-old senator and his family are reviewing further treatment, including a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. The senator has been recovering at his Arizona home after doctors at the Mayo Clinic removed a blood clot above his left eye. The former presidential candidate, who has represented Arizona since 1987, went for his annual checkup, complaining of fatigue

WASHINGTON – Back with a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, former Vice President Al Gore reflected on his 2006 prediction that “the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years” if “drastic measures” were not taken to combat climate change. Gore was asked why he made that prediction in the first film and if he has another prediction to make about climate change now 11 years later. “First of all, we’ve seen a lot of progress since the first movie came out. We have the Paris agreement now. The cost of renewable energy has come down so quickly

If Sen. John McCain were to leave the Senate before his term ends in 2022, the governor would decide who fills the vacancy. McCain, who revealed Wednesday that he had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, made no indication he intends to step away. "Further consultations with Senator McCain´s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate,” his office said in a statement. But were circumstances to require that McCain be replaced, that person would have to be a Republican, as McCain is, and would serve until the next general election, which happens every two years
