Taxpayers will spend $944,000 to
support Bill Clinton´s lifestyle in 2014 as he
claims he and Hillary are not ´out of touch´
because they ´talk to people in our town´

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/24/2014 10:20:16 PM

Former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are worth between $10 and $50 million, according to their financial disclosure forms--but taxpayers will still pony up nearly $1 million this year to fund their post-White House lifestyle. Like the three other living former presidents, Jimmy Carter and the two George Bushes, Clinton receives a $201,000 annual pension. But that just scratches the surface of the government benefits he shares with his wife Hillary. The total for 2014 also includes $157,000 for staff salaries and benefits, $414,000 for office space and $9,000 for phone bills.

They ought to put their money where their mouths are and give the money away, take a vow of poverty... or maybe a vow of "middle classness" (as Michelle Obama coined at a campaign stop in ´08) and give it to the poor or struggling families or charities that actually help people.

instead of donating old underwear or used shower curtains...

Ex-president´s should receive nothing from taxpayers. They all have the ability to make millions and since they can´t take it with them they should use it on themselves.

Somewhere I remember reading that, starting with GW Bush, ex-Presidents and their spouses lose much of their security and government protective detail after 10 years.

I would recommend that Congress make the law retroactive to all Presidents and spouses after 1989.

Good to know that from here on out, any conservative politician, donor, supporter of any type, will NOT have to put up with anyone (especially liberals) accusing them of being "out of touch with the common man" just for having wealth! Bill and Hillary have shown us the light! They have broken the shackles of success! You CAN have a net worth of $10-50 million and still be a "regular guy"! This must mean the Koch brothers are now OK!

...though the common folk of Chappaqua may not be banking as much loot as the Clintons, the median household income of nearly $200k a year doesn´t really make them the best source of info on life for the majority of Americans...

...been a long time since Bill and Hillary have felt the pain and the neighbors I bet, are doing just fine...

You can say what you want to about Nixon, but he gave up some of his perks voluntarily after leaving the WH. All the other ex-Presidents are wealthy enough to pay their own way instead of continuing to live off the hard working honest taxpayers backs. Tell them to walk the talk or shut up.

A tropical depression has been spotted off the coast of Florida--and could ruin Fourth of July cookouts and fireworks across most of the northeastern United States.

Nigel Farage was today accused of ´shocking disrespect´ after turning his back on the EU´s national anthem as the European Parliament was opened in France. The UKIP leader´s public show of dissent came after the German socialist Martin Schulz was reappointed president of the European Parliament--in a shady ´backroom stitch up´ sparking anger in Britain. Mr Schulz was backed by MEPs to carry on in the £213,000 a year role, despite the fact that his Socialist group lost May´s European elections. [Snip] Although most MEPs stood up for it, British Tory MEPs sat quietly while UKIP MEPs turned their backs

The United States fears that two of al-Qaeda´s most deadly international offshoots are plotting to bring down a commercial airliner with the help of European jihadists returning from Syria. The White House is debating asking its allies to step up airport security in response to the new threat from the terror group´s Syrian and Yemeni branches, meaning British travellers could face intensified screenings. The American plan, reported by ABC News, could call for an influx of armed US air marshals on British flights or an increase in searches of passengers headed to the US.

EU migrants milking benefits
will be KICKED OUT of Britain

Jobless EU migrants claiming benefits will be booted out of Britain from tomorrow if they show no sign of finding work. Ministers say the radical measure is an attempt to give Britain the toughest controls on migrants in the world. It means those who have been claiming jobseeker’s allowance for six months will have to undergo “prospect of work” interviews to determine whether they can stay in the country. Those who do not have a job offer or the imminent prospect of finding work will lose their right to reside in the UK--leaving many liable to be sent home.

Obama to BYPASS Congress AGAIN

President Barack Obama announced today that he would again go around Congress to enact immigration reform measures. In a hastily scheduled statement this afternoon from the White House Rose Garden, Obama said he would ´greatly prefer´ Congress passing any sort of immigration reform legislation, even if it wasn´t the bill he supports, but he was done sitting around waiting for that to happen. The president said his administration would ´refocus´ its efforts on the border, and he would use his ´existing legal authority´ to do ´what Congress refuses to do´ and fix the broken immigration system.

Russia is replacing America as the

If anyone at the White House was paying any attention to the dramatic changes taking place to the landscape of the Middle East, then they should be ringing the alarm bells. There are many understandable reasons why Western leaders are wary of backing the pro-Iranian Shia government of Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki. But at the same time they should realise, as I have argued since the crisis erupted earlier this month, that allowing a fascist-style Islamist organisation like the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (Isis) to establish its own independent fiefdom in northern Iraq and Syria could have potentially

Hamas warned Israel on Monday against waging war on the Gaza Strip, saying this would “open the gates of hell” on Israel. The warning was issued hours before the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli youths were found near Hebron. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that Israel bears responsibility for the latest escalation in the Gaza Strip. “[Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu should know that his threats don’t scare Hamas,” Abu Zuhri said. “If he wages war on the Gaza Strip, the gates of hell will be opened.” Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal phoned Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan and briefed

The Italian navy has found about 30 bodies in a fishing boat carrying hundreds of migrants between Sicily and the North African coast. The migrants who died appeared to have been asphyxiated. The discovery was made when rescuers boarded the vessel to evacuate a number of people said to be in distress, two of them pregnant women. The navy says that over the weekend it rescued more than 5,000 migrants trying to cross from North Africa. The figure was released soon after news emerged of the discovery of the bodies. The navy said that those who died were crammed into

Britain´s exit from the EU would be a "disaster" for Europe, a close ally of Angela Merkel has said as Germany attempts to woo David Cameron back into the European fold. Dr Michael Fuchs, the deputy chairman of Germany´s Social Democratic Union party joined his colleague Wolfgang Shaulble, the German finance minister in publicly announcing that the idea of a British exit would be "unimaginable" and that Germany "needs" their continued membership.

VIDEO: Huge Explosion as Palestinian
Terrorists Hit Israeli Factory
Breitbart London [UK], by Staff    Original Article

Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip on Saturday struck an industrial factory in the southern Israeli city of Sderot, according to a report from the European Jewish Press (EJP). A video that shows the incident reveals how damaging the so-called "home made" rockets used by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad can really be. Sderot is just one kilometre from the Gaza border, and when air raid sirens sound, residents have less than 15 seconds to find their nearest shelter. Most buildings and schools in the area have been made bomb proof, though this is of little consolation to those in cars

The Jerusalem Post has reported an ´unverified´ video which purports to show a super-precision Israeli airstrike somewhere in the Gaza Strip yesterday. The footage, which appears to be piece together from a number of CCTV cameras, shows how accurate Israeli targeting is when the country´s armed forces strikes at terrorists in Gaza – despite terrorists placing infrastructure and weaponry close to schools and in civilian buildings. The website reports that "Security cameras near the Shati refugee camp in the Gaza Strip allegedly recorded the assassination of two terrorists by the Israel Air Force."

Megyn Kelly faced off with former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers in an explosive interview tonight in which Kelly repeatedly confronted Ayers about bombings and killings that the radical group was reportedly involved in. Kelly asked Ayers how many bombings he was personally responsible for. Ayers declined to answer, but did acknowledge the “terrible risk” they took with some of their more out-there tactics. Kelly grilled him on how the Weather Underground “declared a state of war against the U.S. government” and encouraged violence. Kelly went through a series of instances in which the Weather Underground was tied to bombings and killings,

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion. But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014. Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned. Now this… Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will

As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible? On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

Today, the Supreme Court ruled in the nationally followed Hobby Lobby case. The for-profit corporations that brought these cases to the Supreme Court—a craft store and a cabinet manufacturer—argued that the corporations’ religious convictions should excuse them from compensating their employees through the comprehensive health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers sought to exclude insurance coverage of several forms of birth control because, contrary to medical and scientific evidence, the corporations’ owners believe some birth control causes abortions. The Affordable Care Act already includes special arrangements for houses of worship and religious non-profits, like schools and hospitals. Houses

One week after traveling to Mississippi to do his utmost to help Senator Thad Cochran (R) beat Tea Party rival Chris McDaniel, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) talked about the strengths he saw in Cochran´s approach to campaigning. According to AZ Central, McCain dismissed criticism over the tactics the Republican Establishment used to get black Democrats to cross over and vote for Cochran. Said McCain, "There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans." He described Cochran´s "get-out-the-vote campaign"

The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense
