Michelle Obama Riverdances
Through Dublin to the Tune
of $7,921,638

Breitbart Big Peace, by Tom Fitton

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/17/2014 6:45:16 AM

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

FTA: ´´The Daily Mail estimated the cost of Michelle Obama’s two-day trip to Ireland, in addition to flight and security costs obtained by Judicial Watch, at around $5 million.´´

Don´t miss the last few paragraphs, they´re stunning. But, it´s only taxpayers money...and they ARE Royalty! Try not to hurl.

The Ceausescus of the Potomac!

Bring on taxing perks! There are other ways to provide incentives to employees--like raising wages by the same amount an employer would have paid for perks.

All the Republicans need is a neatly typed list of the vacations and costs. Itemization of each trip should be footnoted, along with sources. All that´s really important is to show taxpayers the total mind-boggling amount spent on vacations (including "child" care, hangers-on, etc.), since the Obamas have been in occupation of the White House.)

And again I say, the Brian William´s of this world (and even Howard Stern) went on and on about George Bush cutting brush at his house in Texas, working at the same time out of that office, or going to Camp David and doing the same. But they say NOTHING about the Obama´s excellent adventures! How these people can consider themselves newsmen astounds me. But what appalls me even more are the Low Information voters, young and old, who pay no attention to any of the lies, simplifications and abuse, and vote for Obama because he speaks so well or because he is fighting a war on women. (If you discount Valerie Jarrett, there are significantly LESS women in the Obama administration than in that of Bush, and they are paid less as well.) Brian Williams plays his ends justify the means news reporting, an LIV voters buy in.

I agree with #12. Why are these family trips not taxable to the Obamas?

A trip "home" to Chicago, as President Bush went home to Texas, is one thing. But seeing the world - and treating the kids and Moms and numerous old Chicago pals to the same tour - is personal. Should be shut down to a great extent. And any trips allowed should be taxed as income.

They call Taxpayer One and the other assorted presidential aircraft like some might call a cab.

Like another commenter posted a while back, just how many vacations did the Obama´s take before he was elected President? One can only assume there were many trips to Hawaii and Martha´s Vineyard since they seem to be favorite vacation spots. It is no wonder their finances were a little sketchy and they needed help from Rezko. It costs a lot of money to vacation like the Obama´s must have been used to. It is costing taxpayers a fortune to keep them in the lifestyle to which they were, no doubt, accustomed. /s

I am still waiting to hear who was on the NYC low fly-by plane trip. I am certain it was Mooch, Granny, the girls, and maybe even Aunt Zucchini and a host of other regulars in the posse. Sadly, most people in this country wouldn´t even be bothered by that, if shown to be true.

I would really like to see a comparison of First Lady travel costs of the 20th and 21st centuries, beginning with Bess Truman. We can´t consider Eleanor Roosevelt because FDR was in his 4th term when he died. Including Eleanor with subsequent First Ladies would not be an apples-to-apples comparison. Subsequent President´s only served two terms at the most.

In the short time JFK was in office, Jackie seemed to have broken the mold for First Ladies to be in the background. I would imagine that President Kennedy did some reimbursing of some of the costs for Jackie´s trips (remember, he was trying to get re-elected when he was killed; therefore, he was sensitive to how Jackie was viewed, especially by Republicans).

Michelle has surpassed any expenditures Jackie ever had - and she has done it in "spades"(meaning excessively). Republicans have a "club"(bridge term like trump card) to use in the 2016 election, if they will just use it.

Michelle´s spending should be an embarrassment to the Democrats, especially if it is proved that very little was reimbursed by the Obamas.

Hell may even be in second place, in the fury department, but we the taxpayers are first in line paying for the jet fuel to keep that scorned token beard wearing her happy face charade for the duration.

We are getting hosed because even with the multi million dollar vacations every other week, she goes out of character constantly.

For the next vacay, how about a two week stay at Cliven & Carol´s Bed and Breakfast Dude Ranch in scenic Bunkerville, Nevada? I´m sure the Bundy´s and their life long friends and neighbors would agree to an opportunity to help the FBFLOTUS experience life in the Real United States of America that her ____________ talked about in his first speech.

The BLM army is already there to keep her and the girls protected. Adventure abounds at every turn, with horse back rides on the range with the sights and smells of real BS in every dry gulch, real men with spurs and leather chaps who draw real lines in the sand, real ladies who have loved their country and their men since childhood, and people who know a rattle snake when they see it.

I agree with #2´s comment that this family of insensate wastrels regard these obscene bimonthly five-star vacations with their retinues of hundreds of hangers on as down payments on reparations. In this five year long non-recovery with median income down, signirficantly, for the first time in our lives, Michelle and Barack are taking advantage of everything they can, taxpayers be damned. If any other First Family had flung other people´s money around like the spendthrift Obamas, they´d be run out of Washington at pitchfork point. The Obamas are reminiscent of Leon Spinks with his mink-lined, gold outfitted Lincoln limousine with opry windows and curb feelers, but at least Spinks was blowing his own money.

Fitton makes one significant error in this article: When one investigates things closely, one pores over them, as in the microscopic pores of our skin. Faux film critic Rex Reed used to make the error of confusing pour for pore, but he can´t write. Breitbart should add this error to its style book. It´s as bad as confusing there, their, and they´re.

She was never proud of America, has always had contempt for America, but ever eager to take advantage, receiving pay for jobs she didn´t do, and now the lavish spending of taxpayer money for which she is not entitled.

They used to call this kind of fiscal abuse, " Conspicuous Consumption".
It seems that the only thing we have learned about the Obama Regime is that their only "Shovel Ready" Project has been their access to the US Treasury.
Mooches next project is going to put a fire pit in the front yard of the WH and hire some SS agent to throw $100.00 bill into it. That should make her feel like she is doing something to help the Taxpayers out.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
