Obama to Fly Over 9 Hours Just
for Speech on Immigration

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 1/29/2013 6:47:10 AM

President Barack Obama will fly over 9 hours tomorrow, round-trip from Washington, D.C. to Las Vegas, Nevada, just to deliver a speech on immigration, according to the president´s White House schedule. With Air Force One estimated to cost $182,000 per hour in flight, Obama´s trip--that is, only his travel to and from Vegas--will cost taxpayers over $1.6 million.

Why do people continue to whine about a few $$$ to fill the tank? After all, he is the savior, the second coming, the messiah. Just ask his media wonks. We should consider ourselves blessed to have his divine leadership. /s

I wish you all would stop the complaining about Obama´s time on Air Force One! That plane gets him away from Geraldine and the Grump Sisters for 18 hours and no amount of money is too much for that. Check the manifest and see which of his boyfriends are going along.

To paraphrase P.J. O´Rourke......."Giving money and power to The Bamster is like giving whiskey and car keys to a teenage boy."

Of course, there is a way to put an immediate stop to all this round-the-clock travel insanity.......Hide the keys to his personalized Boeing 747-200B!

Obama doing what he does best. Sitting on his ass and looking out the window while sippin the good stuff.
Isn´t it about time Congress puts some kind of limit on Presidential travel? He is racking the miles on borrowed dollars from China and sending us the bill.

0bama is deliberately wasting a trillion dollars a year of the people´s money on things that are completely unconstitutional. If he curtails that he can waste all the jet fuel he wants till 2016. It will be worth it.

Wish someone would point out to the black population that for every hour the Zipster spends on AF-1, he uses up what they would likely earn in six lifetimes. Then when you add all the other expenses when he travels, it´s even worse. That this is ignored is sad. I have literally screamed for four years at least that someone should hide the keys to AF-1. What is wrong with the House that they let this continue? Don´t they pay the bills?

Add to the $1.6 million cost of AF1: Cost of the AF C-17 that carries Obama´s limo and SS SUVs; the pre-arrival SS team for hotel sweeps; bomb disposal team; fire, EMT and police units; and the 2-3 hour ban on commercial & private plane flights while in Vegas. Total cost surely approaching $5 million for 45 minute presentation.

Obama´s extravagance with taxpayer money is in stark contrast to yesterday´s story about 5 US soldiers who suffered quadruple amputations in Iraq and Afghanistan. These grievously wounded young men depend upon private charities for everything from wheel chair ramps to donated used cars to supplement VA care. In time, their sacrifices will fade, and they will be on their own. A $5 million trust fund for care would them would be far better than a Vegas trip.

O, the horror! All the CO2 he´s putting into the air! How many polar bears will die? How many species will go extinct? How many more Solyndra´s will have to be funded, because of this horrible jet putting horrible carbon dioxide into the atmosphere? He should ride a horse on these excursions, like Al Gore and Leo DeCaprio and Diane Feinstein do.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says. April is generally the worst month of allergy season,

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
