Isn't that special! Another Socialist owning two mega mansions which will use a lot of energy to keep cool and warm. Next, he will buy a private jet so he can fly all over the world. Why do we have to keep paying him for his elite lifestyle and keep paying for his Secret Service! There ought to be a law!

So, does anyone ask WHERE did the Obama's make all their millions? They certainly didn't have it when they lived in Illinois. They didn't have it when he was a Senator or when he took office as President. OBVIOUSLY there are millions to be made if you make it to the Oval Office. Look at the Clintons. What is wrong with that picture. MEANWHILE Taxpayers are still paying for the Obama's and Clinton's Secret Service details, private offices and who knows what else. I think THAT should be revisited. Maybe President Trump could shut that down while he's in office!!

There goes the neighborhood… FTA: The former president has criticized wealthy people for their big houses before. During a speech in South Africa last year, the president lamented the issue of income inequality, and blamed wealthy people for living excessively lavish lifestyles. “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have,” Obama said at the time. “There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.” And have a look at the photo selected to go with article...

As a practicing physician for the past 20 some years I make about what Obola was making as president, maybe a little bit more. At this point in my career I still couldn't afford a $15,000,000 place on Cape Cod. How does that work?

(hit submit too soon) Roll forward to October 2018: t's been more than three years since Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck first listed his spectacular waterfront Martha's Vineyard estate. The mansion has lingered on the market without a buyer making a fast break to the bank, so Grousbeck has slashed the price. In August 2015, when it was originally put on the market, the price was set at $22.5 million, but it has been cut by more than $6 million, and currently sits at $16,250,000. https://www.realtor.com/news/celebrity-real-estate/wyc-grousbeck-marthas-vineyard/ Now it’s listed at $14 mil and change and the O’s are getting a discount, presumably from that. Such a deal... Lots of lawn to cut unless the Mighty O’s decide to put in masses of affordable housing around it...

Meanwhile, the Left is demanding Donald Trump's tax returns? I think the IRS should sic a forensic accountant on the Lightbringer's finances instead. This raises some interesting questions. We know why so much money was donated to the Clintons. What can the Obama's promise to be able to have this kind of money sent their way? A possible Mooch run for the Presidency?

Seven bedrooms, eh? I thought we were supposed to limit our carbon footprint. The Obamas aren't making a carbon footprint. They are making a carbon BUTT print -- one much bigger than the size of their feet combined. Here we go again . . . different sets of rules for different people. The Obamas can climate change until the farting cows come home. The rest of us? We bear the burden of their foolish regs and rules.

Some posters above have suggested the ways that these two vermin got all that cash. Here’s another one - get a $60 million advance in a book deal for a book that somehow never gets written. And smidgen’s deal from a couple of years ago is not the first time that he’s taken the cash and produced nothing. I guess that Bill Ayers is too busy. At least Mooch found someone to write hers.

The Obamas ended up with that Chicago house via some bogus deal with Rezko (sp?). No one was ever clear about the ownership. Big Mooch complained about the teensy condo they all sardined in prior to that. As for homes in Hawaii, Penny Pritzker envisioned a contributor-financed residence and library for the O’s. That disappeared without a trace. Palm Springs-Rancho Mirage was indeed a mirage. DC/Kalorama was a rental. Owner Joe Lockhart had had it on the market for quite a while, as I recall. Who knows whether they actually owned it. Have you seen a deed or evidence of a deed recording? I haven’t. As for another house on MV, ditto. Rumors, but only rentals. By this time the Celtics guy has to be desperate. Doubt that he owned it free and clear so the carry and taxes had to be eating him alive. He may have ended up paying Obie to take it!

It is not the fact that Dumbo is the biggest fraud in political history. It is the unbearable stupidity of the American people who elected him and bought into his very low IQ and obvious low level background. Donald Trump must investigate both Obamas, their criminal background including drug dealing. But above all Obama is a traitor who stole billions and gave it to any muslim country that asked for it.

Those big homes on Martha’s Vineyard are essentially Summer homes and high mucky mucks like the Obamas generally do not live there during the cold months. Hollywood during Winters, and Martha’s Vineyard in the Summers, would put the Obamas right smack dab in the middle of the leftist and liberal globalist investor class year round.

We all knew this was going to happen. The majority of the House Democratic caucus now supports impeachment proceedings against President Trump because he won the 2016 election. This was the plan all along. Of course, the Democrats couldn’t admit this after they retook the House in 2018. They had to look like they were going to push a legislative agenda, not engage in a crusade against the Trump White House until the next election cycle. It’s the tantrum of all tantrums. And while this is annoying—the impeachment circus—it’s also highly entertaining;

Good Morning America presenter Lara Spencer has apologized after being met with fury from British viewers for mocking Prince George for taking ballet lessons. The TV host was inundated with complaints from British and American viewers alike after laughing and stifling giggles while presenting a segment about the young royal's new school curriculum on Thursday. In the segment, she chuckled: 'The future king of England will be putting down the Playdoh to take on Religious Studies, computer programming poetry and ballet among other things.

CNN’s decision to hire disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as a contributor makes perfect sense to anyone who is at all familiar with the fake news network.. Russia Collusion Hoax Forever -McCabe is one of the chief architects behind the Russia Collusion Hoax and this hoax is something the far-left CNN does not want to let go of. Even though Robert Mueller’s report proves President Trump did not collude with the Russians or obstruct justice, things like facts, science, and truth have never mattered to anyone at CNN.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said in a speech at Urbandale, Iowa, on Tuesday that President Donald Trump is “engaging in a gigantic abuse of power” as president. “If there’s anything I can’t stand it’s the abuse of power,” said Biden. “And he is abusing it every single day.” “He wants to build his wall by executive order. He wants to change the appropriation process by executive order. He wants to abuse the power that’s there,” said Biden. “He is engaging in a gigantic abuse of power,” said Biden.

"Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." Lies beget other lies, and with them come anger and division. That's what has been happening ever since Donald Trump was elected: false witness against the president. The latest is the charge that Trump's policies will bring economic ruin to the country. He's setting us up for economic Armageddon worse than the Great Depression and all that preceded and followed it. Hard to believe that one man could cause such havoc, but that's the Left's contention. There was talk during the 2016 campaign of an economic meltdown should Trump be elected,

Women are increasingly opting out of heterosexuality because it is “the bedrock of their global oppression,” NBC News asserted in a bizarre opinion piece this week. “Men need heterosexuality to maintain their societal dominance over women,” writes Marcie Bianco for the NBC News website. “Women, on the other hand, are increasingly realizing not only that they don’t need heterosexuality, but that it also is often the bedrock of their global oppression.” Ms. Bianco lumps together a series of recent news stories, “from Jeffrey Epstein to the Dayton and El Paso mass shooters, to Miley Cyrus’s separation and Julianne Hough’s declaration that she’s ‘not straight,’” which, she says,

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just completed three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the U.S. Supreme Court disclosed Friday. The radiation therapy, conducted on an outpatient basis, began Aug. 5, shortly after a localized cancerous tumor was discovered on Ginsburg's pancreas. The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg's bile duct, according to a statement issued by the court.

August in Washington can be the political equivalent of an elephant graveyard: One good rain can wash away the dirt and expose the bones of scandals past. And this August did not disappoint. Thanks to the relentless investigative work of Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), we are learning that the Hillary Clinton email case may not really be settled. A staff memo updating the two senators’ long-running probe discloses that the FBI — the version run in 2016 by the now-disgraced and fired James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok — failed to pursue access to “highly classified”

A speaker at the Democratic National Committee summer meeting Friday said if free health care is labeled "socialism" by Republicans, then they should "acknowledge that the Bible must then promote socialism.""When we embrace moral language, we must ask does our policy care for the least of these? Does it lift up those who are most marginalized and dejected in our society? Does it establish justice? That is the moral question," said Rev. William Barber,

Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Friday released a plan to combat addiction, mental health, and loneliness, but he warned that the president himself was part of the cause. “I think that when you have national leadership pitting people against each other, telling some people that they don’t belong, and creating a general atmosphere of general chaos and just plain meanness, then of course stress levels go up,” he said in an interview with Teen Vogue. “And I think stress is a big part of what goes into health. So we can’t pretend there’s no health consequences to what’s going on in the White House.” Buttigieg warned of an overall

Wall Street plunged Friday after President Trump “ordered” US companies to seek alternatives to doing business in China. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 400 points moments after Trump launched into a Twitter tirade lambasting China for intellectual property theft and fentanyl shipments to the US. “We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far…better off without them. The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United States, year after year, for decades, will and must STOP,” Trump said in a series of tweets. “Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking

The Supreme Court has announced that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was treated for pancreatic cancer this summer, spending three weeks at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for radiation. In a statement crafted to calm the hearts and minds of frantic progressives, the court was explicit: "The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body." Still, fans of the icon, who is 86 and sometimes known as #NotoriousRBG, did not appear soothed on social media. Within minutes of the release, Twitter exploded with well-wishes, appeals to various deities, and a not insignificant number of

Hayley Peterson is a senior correspondent for Business Insider. Following the shooting in a Walmart in El Paso, she decided to show readers just how easy it is to buy a gun at Walmart. It isn't. I believe this disappointed her. Not every Walmart carries firearms. Walmart does not advertise which of its stores do. And when she found one, she was told to come back on Thursday because that was the next time a federally licensed dealer was scheduled to work. Then when she found a Walmart with firearms and a qualified seller, she discovered she could not pass the background check, which would take three days.

San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors just adopted a resolution recommending that felons not be called felons but rather “formerly incarcerated person” or former “justice-involved” person or “returning resident” — or any other number of soft and fuzzy names that won’t hurt the feelings of the, umm, felons. File this under Ridiculous. “We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done,” Supervisor Matt Haney said to the San Francisco Chronicle. “We want them ultimately to become contributing citizens, and referring to them as felons is like a scarlet letter that they can never get away from.” OK. First off, Haney does have a point.
