The Obamas Have Spent
Over $44,351,777.12 In
Taxpayer Cash On Travel

Daily Caller, by Ariel Cohen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/5/2014 3:34:25 PM

The Obamas have spent over 44 million dollars in taxpayer money on travel and vacations. Some are even calling him the “most well-trvaeled, expensive” president in our nation’s history. As Americans head off for the long holiday weekend, let’s take a look back at some of the president’s holiday spending. Our president vacations a lot — we’re talking $44,351,777.12 worth of “a lot,” with most expenses charged to the American taxpayer. As of March 2014, Obama has spent more time traveling internationally than any other president, taking 31 trips since assuming office in 2009. The 119 days spent overseas have

They had barely moved in at 1600 PA Ave and they were already tired of the place, if you recall.

I´m surprised it´s not more. It probably is.

He should be arrested for treason, jailed, and they BOTH should be made to pay back every last cent. Two freeloading, parasitic, hateful, lazy, arrogant frauds. I don´t like them.

In the article, it says this is the cost of their transportation, not lodging, meals, secret service, etc.

And when they travel they book hundreds of rooms at thousands of dollars per night. You are right---it is much much more.

Much of this piggish travel is to please the Mooch and her mother, Mrs Robinson, who has occupied a free apartment in the WH since early ´09. Appears that mother & daughter grifters have to be bribed in order to keep the secret about Obama that Joan Rivers just blurted out.

Saddest thing is that this money could have been used to cover the costs of wounded soldiers & Marines and their families. Thursday´s story about the Marine quadriplegic awaiting cadaver arms noted the costs of his family´s travels between the Boston surgical hospital and his Virginia home. Sgt. Peck said that while the travel costs were large, he would somehow manage. These costs and the costs of other grievously wounded should be taken from Obama´s bottomless WH travel & entertainment budget and not from the wounded.

After the O´s moved to the WH they thought they had become a high power Hollywood couple. That was the understanding of this grifter no class transgender couple!That was the clown´s comprehension of being ´president´! Traveling non stop, apologizing non stop, partying non stop, it was a huge step up for the community organizer who did not want to be seen in the Oval because other than holding a pen, he has no clue what to do!

No one seems to know if there is any budget at all for our first family, or if they have unlimited freedom to hire as many servants as they want, pay them whatever they want, plan as many vacations, with as many guests as they like entertaining. I´ll bet our "royalty" far out spends the European monarchs. This should be stopped, and if GOP wins in ´16 that should be at the top of the to-do list.

The prez earns $400k plus a $50,000 expense account. Why are We picking up the tab for ´all they can invite´ on vacations ? Even if they pay for their own hotels (we wish) We pay for extra security.

Why are We paying for him to use AF1 as a taxi for him to campaign for Dems ?

Since We are paying for their joy rides, We should at least see who is along for the ride.

The audacity of it all. Good to be the king.

Numbers are approximate, but the $44 million is only 237+ hours of flight time for AF-1 and I bet that was used the first year in office. AF-1 costs $185,000/hour to fly. They need to come up with better figures, especially remembering how Moo! rented several FLOORS of rooms in a swanky hotel when she travelled to Spain to shop. I guess when you travel with 200 close friends, those rooms are needed.

The amount suggested is a fraction of what Obama has spent on travel. Another poster reminded us of the African Safari, then the trip to China.

Grandma was not a very nice guest.
Manners matter. And the Chinese people think in terms of 1000 years, not just a 24 hr news cycle.

And how much has it cost us for Obammy to play almost 180 rounds of golf so far? I´ve read that it takes him a minimum of 5 hours to play a round of golf. Probably more. 180 X 5 = 900 hours divided by a 40 hour normal work week (ROFL,...like "The Won" ever, EVER actually works 40 hours in a week,...) =´s 22.5 weeks divided by 4 =´s 5.6 months of playing golf on our dime.

How much does all of this time and security personnel cost?

How much have all of the lavish "Blackhouse" dinners for rap "musicians" and other miscreants cost the taxpayers also?

The Obamas went in office with the intention of destroying this country and loving every minute of it. They are going all over the world telling people what they are doing and we the people are doing nothing because we would be called racist. The Obamas dug in deep and have continued going deeper every day. They are enjoying every minute of it. The sad thing is that when they wake up, they, like all of us, will have nothing. The people who voted him in office will find a way to blame it on the fact that he is black and everyone threw him under the bus. Actually, he is throwing every person, black, white, rich, poor, liberal, conservative or any other description there is for a person except him and Michelle and the two girls under the buss for life.

The Obama administration is reportedly considering an executive action that could protect illegal immigrants convicted of serious vehicle-related offenses, including drunk driving, from deportation as they’d normally be subject to under immigration law. The most sweeping piece of executive action President Obama has considered regarding immigration policy would offer effectively legal status and work authorization to some millions of illegal immigrants, but there are other executive actions the administration has considered instead of or in addition to that measure. One of those possibilities, described in a report by the

GAO says Obama administration can´t

The Department of Health and Human Services cannot legally bail out the insurance industry for excessive losses through President Obama´s health care law unless the U.S. Congress approves language allowing the administration to do so, according to a legal opinion released on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office. The ruling could end up provoking a showdown between the White House and Congressional Republicans over Obamacare that has the potential to affect health insurance premiums. At issue is the "risk corridors" program, which aims to stabilize the insurance market on the new health insurance exchanges

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration must acknowledge the existence of an independent investigation into former White House senior economics adviser Austan Goolsbee’s alleged unauthorized access to the Koch brother’s tax returns, a court ruled Tuesday. A federal judge ruled the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) must disclose to watchdog group Cause of Action whether records of an investigation exist. Cause of Action filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit after TIGTA refused to confirm or deny the existence of the investigation in what is commonly known as a “Glomar response.”

Then the agency said the jumper was subdued as soon as he entered through the North Portico. Now we learn, from The Post’s Carol D. Leonnig, that he led agents on a dance into the East Room and outside the Green Room. At this rate of disclosure, we may soon learn that the jumper stopped in the Oval Office and signed a

The Democrats´ Biggest Worry:
Obama´s Fall From Grace With His Base

The Democrats’ biggest worry heading toward November is Obama’s fall from grace with his base. This could make things even worse for them than currently expected. Democrats’ only hope to offset Republicans’ anticipated midterm surge is their base’s high turnout. However, Obama’s deep drop with his strongest supporters seriously calls this hope into question. Democrats know they will lose seats in November. The only question is: How many? At best, they hope to hang on to the Senate by a hair. Losses for the party holding the presidency are nothing new. Simply, it happens because the presidential candidate, who brought in sufficient

A federal judge in Oklahoma has ruled that Obamacare subsidies cannot go to residents of states that are not running their own insurance exchanges, a second blow to the Obama administration on a issue that threatens a key element of the health law’s coverage expansion. Judge Ronald A. White said that the administration’s decision to allow subsidies to go through either a state-run health insurance exchange or the federal exchange is an improper and invalid reading of the Affordable Care Act and must be struck. White’s ruling marks the second judgment against the government on the subsidy question and comes as the

As Texas debates the implementation of some of the strictest abortion laws in the country, for at least three female lawmakers and candidates in that state, the debate has become intensely personal. The most high-profile of the three, of course, is gubernatorial hopeful and state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who revealed recently in her memoir that she had medical procedures to end two pregnancies. “Our baby had a severe brain abnormality,” Davis said in a television interview. “We knew that the most loving thing that we could do for our daughter was to say goodbye.” Davis, now trailing badly in her campaign, made

In his speech to the United Nations last week, President Obama pledged to the world that the United States would use its might to stop the horrific depredations of the terrorist movement variously known as the Islamic State, ISIS, or, as he calls it, ISIL. “This group has terrorized all who they come across in Iraq and Syria,” the president proclaimed. “Mothers, sisters, daughters have been subjected to rape as a weapon of war.

The woman was grabbed from behind as she was walking from a grocery store to a friend’s home in Fairfax, Virginia, on the night of September 24, 2005. The attacker dragged the 26-year-old into a darkened park and beat her and raped her. He then began to choke her, and as she lost consciousness it must have seemed that his might be the last face she would ever see. But the attacker was apparently

Jurafsky, a professor of linguistics at Stanford, looked at hundreds of examples of food language—from menus to marketing materials to restaurant reviews. Along the way, he uncovered some fascinating patterns. For example: In naming foods, he explains, marketers often appeal to the associations that we already have with certain sounds.

Report: Obama Has Missed over Half
His Second-Term Daily Intel Briefings

Posted By: happywarrior- 9/30/2014 7:44:05 AM     Post Reply
A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Leading astrologers say that Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is destined for a future working on social justice and will enjoy a strong relationship with her proud grandparents, Hillary and Bill. After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter. “She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that
