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.

Officials have confirmed at least 13 people have died and 80 have been injured after a van mounted a pavement in Barcelona. It follows what the country´s Department of the Interior described as "a massive trampling on the Ramblas in Barcelona by a person with a van". Shortly after the crash the Interior confirmed it as a "terrorist attack", the department tweeted: "The terrorist attack protocol has been activated". So-called Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack. A couple of hours after the attack the Interior ministry dismissed early reports that suspects being sought in connection with the attack had been holed
Fox News host Eboni K Williams has received death threats by email after criticizing Donald Trump´s remarks on Monday. Speaking during Eboni´s Docket, her opinion slot on Fox News Specialists, Williams complained that Trump´s attempts to blame both white supremacists and antifascist protesters as equally bad was ´cowardly and dangerous´. Since then, she has received a slew of emails so vicious that Fox has hired a security detail to follow her to work, Variety reported. Williams derided Trump´s initial response to the death of Heather Heyer - a 32-year-old woman knocked down and killed when a white supremacist drove into a crowd
He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Thursday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. ´He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,´ said Scarborough. ´The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.´ Scarborough then added: ´He has chosen
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is a marked man, according to news reports and sources inside the West Wing who see the nationalist Trump-whisperer´s political hourglass quickly losing sand. CBS News reported Monday night that the axe could fall as soon as Friday on the man credited with arranging the president´s marriage to millions of angry white working-class voters last year. The former Breitbart News executive chairman was once an equal partner in a ruling triumvirate of deputies that included Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner. But Priebus´s star ran out of fuel last month. And his successor
North Korea´s leader has pulled back from a ordering missile strike just off the US territory of Guam but warned that he could still go ahead if Washington continues with "reckless actions" on the Korean peninsula. Kim Jong-un was briefed by military chiefs on its plans to create "enveloping fire" by setting off rockets into the waters a few miles off the American military hub in the Pacific. News agencies quoted him as saying he would observe the "foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees" a little more before deciding whether to order a test launch. His decision to hold fire - at
A Methodist pastor who has been Hillary Clinton’s minister for years plagiarized the writings of another minister in a new book, it was reported on Monday. Rev. Bill Shillady is the author of a new book, Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton. The book is based on emails that Shillady wrote to Clinton during the presidential campaign. Clinton even appears on the cover of the book and she even wrote a foreword praising the minister. While the book includes 11 pages of end notes crediting source material, Shillady fails to credit another source, a blog post by
Hillary Clinton´s personal pastor compared her treatment to the persecution of Jesus in a devotional sent to her during the Presidential campaign - and victor Donald Trump to the ´wicked´. The former Democratic candidate took comfort from the words of Rev Bill Shillady who told her that ´blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness´. Rev Shillady referred her to Matthew 5:10-12 which says that the reward for such ill treatment on Earth was going to Heaven when she died. The remarks were among the daily devotionals sent by Rev Shillady to Clinton during her failed campaign against Donald Trump. In the foreword
Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —
A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,
Former presidential candidate and current Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich may be moving closer to mounting a primary challenge against President Trump in the 2020 election. Sources close to Kasich told Willie Geist of the "Today Show" there is growing a sense of "moral imperative" to run against Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020 following his controversial statements on the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Va. (Tweet) Kasich has long been critical of Trump. On Tuesday, Kasich criticized Trump´s Charlottesville comments, saying "there is no moral equivalency to Nazi sympathizers" following Trump´s tumultuous press conference. Kasich, who lost to Trump
The president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing has resigned from President Trump´s American Manufacturing Council, making him the fifth business leader to do so. “I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it´s the right thing for me to do,” Scott Paul tweeted Tuesday. (Snip) Paul´s exit comes amid backlash over the president´s response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. Paul is joining Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of major pharmaceutical company Merck; Kevin Plank, the CEO of Under Armour; and Brian Krzanich, the CEO of Intel, who all resigned from the president’s
Mitt Romney fired back at President Trump for saying “both sides” were responsible for violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend, claiming that the two clashing groups were more “morally different universes.” “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday. (Tweet) Romney was responding to Trump’s comments Tuesday that “both sides” were to blame for the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday. Trump drew fire for saying Saturday that "many sides" were to blame for the violence at the
President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on
Some House Democrats renewed calls for Congress to impeach President Trump on Tuesday after he resorted to blaming "both sides´ for a violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., this past weekend organized by white nationalist groups. "POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger," said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., in a tweet Tuesday night. "Time to invoke the 25th Amendment." (Tweet) Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., also called on Republicans to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump. "As we once again hear Donald J. Trump defend those responsible for the deadly riot in Charlottesville
