The hypocrisy of Obama’s
15-day Vineyard vacation

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/13/2014 6:42:49 PM

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists. (Why not forget; the president has.)

I hope all the Conservatives and Republicans who sat out the last election, to make a statement, are happy with what is going on in this country. It is just as much their vault as the fault of those that voted for this dreadful president.

I guess that is #1´s opinion. But maybe those "dreadful people" who did not vote, didn´t see anything to vote FOR. Ever think of that?????

I could not agree more with #1 about those 4 million who stayed home in 2012. Stupid.

If they´d voted, we´d have Pres. Romney now. And he wouldn´t be perfect. But we´d NOT have this socialist unAmerican idgit strutting around spending vast amounts of our $$$ on himself & his pet RAT projects.

Bah!

If a house only has 7 bedrooms why do you need 9 bathrooms? I´m guessing the backyard doesn´t count as a bathroom on the Vineyard. He doesn´t work, he´s incompetent, I think vacationing is the best thing he can do for the Country. How big will ValJars house be? How much are we paying for her to spend 15 days at the beach.

re #1´s comment,It might be worth remembering that democrats paid and bribed ignorant people to vote for some things they hadn´t a clue about except of course those things that were free. Same day voters, multi precinct voters, dead voters, illegal alien voters, and, lest we forget, coercion by the union bosses, and mass media´s cherry-picked truth and democrat secretaries of state certifying the election before anyone can challenge the vote count. I know that I am fed up with voting for the lesser of two liars and would so appreciate having another such as Reagan to be happy to vote for. Meanwhile not voting really doesn´t help in a dreary sort of way.

It takes a lot of energy to single-handedly destroy a major nation. But no one has ever put as much effort into doing just that as Øvomit. Reagan put a lot of effort into destroying the USSR. Too bad it´s the USA for Øvomit. So I guess he needs a vacation to relax before he really puts the final nails into our national coffin in his lame-duck final two years.

Personally I wish he would go on vacation for the next two years. As long as he is on vacation, he isn´t actively trying to destroy this country. Works for me...

I hope those who didn´t vote for Romney to make a point, or something, are happy about the point they made.

Because the rest of us are grieving.

People who can´t see the big picture, beyond their sanctimonious selves, force the rest of us to live with the results of their short sighted, so-called principles.

Massive fraud re-elected this Fraud. When you get 100% of the vote that is 150% greater than the number of registered voters in a precinct, especially in swing states, Duh? the RNC was totally asleep at the switch. Then you have Soros owned Secy´s of States and vote counting systems.

The RNC better have poll watchers in every precinct, even if it requires side arms to be there. Anything less and we´ll be watching Hildabeast´s inauguration. Bet on it.

#12, the problem is... you are waiting on some "wonderful Republican" when we have very solid, capable candidates who would be great presidents, if we could stop looking for that perfect one. By the way, I am never quite sure who is this perfect candidate that you principled conservatives are supporting??

My two cents - it wasn´t just the Republican voters who sat home. It was a combination of those who sat home, fraud and the uninformed. Sitting home is a vote for the other party along with fraud and it will take a lot to get a win.

I think people forget that it is a privilege to vote. We take our freedom for granted and Obama capitalized on that. He knows that people don´t stay informed and they become gullible. We now have what we have.

...maybe the president — for appearances, if nothing else — could cut back a bit, too.
Not the Obamas. They won the White House and, by God, they’re going to enjoy their time there, no matter the cost.


It´s their turn. Make no mistake that the scenes playing out on the White House stage are deliberate pokes in the eye to white America. "This is what you can do to stick it to racist America."

And who cares what you think, anyway?

That is too clear. They´ve got attitudes, fluffing their feathers and puffing their chests as they spend our tax dollars. It´s vindictive and petty but their supporters love it.

The Obamas couldn’t care less about the perception of living high while many hardworking Americans are struggling to get by.

It´s less that they don´t care. It´s that they go out of their way to be uncaring, obnoxious, and ostentatious. It reveals their hatred and their desire to hurt people, of all colors.

Because of the high profile vacations and spending, Americans are now able to see that there is a difference between Left and Right, between how certain media cover the president. Before, it was just "the media" to low-information types. Now, a stark contrast between Left and Right is oozing out of the shadows and into the light.

While this polarization is not existentially good for America, all things considered, it is good for the unaware to become aware that one side is right and the other is wrong. One side tries to be decent, the other deliberately lies. Seeing the polar opposites is beneficial to the country.

Ironically, all Americans can now see that no, not all politicians are alike. Some are juvenile and immature while others are grownups. Some are spending your money while others are trying to give it back to you.

Vive la différence.

We don´t have a government what we have nesting in Washington a cabal of misfits from both parties with very few concerned about this once great country.
Ranting and pointing fingers won´t get us anywhere. I´m afraid elections are just going through the motions at this point. The only thing I believe will fix this is all out physical rejection of the deadwood in government and it´s getting to the point at my age that participation and caring are all but gone. I don´t visit here as often because I know what the news will be with this cabal of low IQ lying misfits in the White House with all their scandals. Any other president would have been impeached by now.

Obama, his wife and their daughters feel they are entitled to our money. The fact that they get to go on these wonderfully expensive vacations is only what they deserve. The kicker for them is the fact that they can lord it over the rest of us. They have no sense of how it looks because they don´t CARE how it looks. In fact, they actually enjoy shoving it in everyone´s face. They know we are paying for their excess and that makes it even better. They are parasitical hypocrites with an attitude. Do you think they ever feel an inkling gradititude? Heck no, all Michelle can do is complain.

As many Americans struggle from paycheck to paycheck the Obamas take yet another extended 15 day vacation. It gives His Majesty, Barack Obama, a break from berating the hated 1% and collecting millions for his next campaign. No one gives dollar estimates of how much hard earned tax payer money is squandered on each personal holiday anymore. They are measured by the truckloads of cash burnt through.

To expand slightly on #27´s comment: We no longer have a two-party system, and it probably wouldn´t matter much if we did.

Instead, we have the culmination of 50 years´ worth of single-minded effort by a morally deranged minority that has used every weapon in its considerable arsenal to bring about what we see today: the subjugation of every American citizen to an entrenched, unaccountable, and out-of-control imperial bureaucracy.

Enough of the blame game. In an election someone wins and someone loses. Let´s face it, Obama had a better machine on the ground and a better strategy than Romney. He went negative early and had Romney on defense most of time. Furthermore, with the press in his hip pocket, the outcome was predictable.
Time to move on and pray the GOP learns a thing or two from their past mistakes.

I see the current debasing of this once great country as reaping what we´ve sown. We who are aware and astute to what goes on complain a lot, but somehow God was taken out of public life with but a whimper from us. Our pulpits spewed tolerance and P.C. to "get along". We were careless in who we put up for election. Our media turned against us. Etc. We now must organize, muster interest, rally round the flag, in what appears to be too little too late. Point that finger of blame where it belongs.

When will people (and the PRESS in general) wake up to this man----a great speech giver who has followed through on exactly NONE of his election promises, both times...he could care less about people and is a living example of how you have to break some eggs to make an (Alinsky) omelet. Just heard that ABC news blocked a report by one of their own re: the IRS investigation being led by a woman who gave $6,000 to the campaigns. If it weren´t for Fox and the NET, nothing contrary to Obama would leak out. Howard Sterne complained mightily about Geo. Bush WORKING at the Ranch or Camp David; he says nothing about our golfer/vacationer in chief! Hypocrites!!!!!!

Blame each other if you like, but I believe four million Republicans and conservatives did not stay home. Because the Romney GOTV computers suffered a massive crash, it was impossible for his campaign to challenge the results, as it was unable to identify independently who had voted. Lois Lerner would understand.

#1... again show me the numbers that you refer to so blithely that back up your statement that Conservatives did not vote. I´m Conservative and I vote in every election no matter who is running and I always vote against Democrats and their enablers. So does every Conservative, because we are engaged in the process.

I´ve voted for McAmnesty, Dole, Romney and the list of losers goes on. It is about time for the Establishment to look in a mirror to discern the real reasons they keep losing.

That said, I think George W. Bush did a reasonable job and he wasn´t protected by his own Party from the sleazy attacks by the Democrats. That said, here we go again.

Grifters is too soft a term.

It will be interesting to see where they live and vacation after he finally leaves the White House and all the high living that has accompanied his luxury tour.

I don´t believe he will retain enough influence to cause his present high end barnacles to stick around and finance his lifestyle. Even in recent times Penny Pritzker, who was appointed or appointed herself to round up contributors for his presidential library and retirement mansion, appears to have come up empty. Everyone pleading that they were tapped out. And I´ll bet many were simply fleeing.

Once he cannot do anything for anyone, they´ll just be the Obamas, private citizens. What a comeuppance (or maybe letdown is more accurate) that will be. Can´t wait.

Excuse second post, but I jsut read up the thread.

The notion that there must be a perfect candidate in a presidential election or one will sit it out is lame to the max. Irresponsible. It is a vote for the other side. And that helped Obama to win.

No sophistry will serve to erase that truth.

Winners vote their choice in the primary and vote for the Republican nominee in the general. It´s high time we pulled our thumbs out of our mouths and became winners.

Here´s to everyone deciding to sweep out the Dems and to clip Obama´s spending/executive action wings in November, even if it means we hold our nose or squench our eyes while we do it. We really are all in this together, friends.

why people don´t vote for repubics?
Easy answer: what´s the difference? bush wanted amnesty, bailouts, supported huge deficits, didn´t actually wage war the way it has to be waged, tacitly watched the fascist bureaucracy building up and stifling America!!!
Same strategy is accepted by the rest of repubics - the whole GOP is doing it. What is the difference if we vote in more repubics like mccain, boehner, rubio, graham... They do nothing now, they won´t do nothing then.

Re #50, candidates/presidents have flaws. Ronald Reagan had flaws. There is no perfect candidate/president!!!!!

But how on earth can any thinking person say that Bush (or Romney) were/would have been worse for our dear country than Obama has been?

There isn´t a rationalization on the planet to justify allowing an Obama to become president. Not even just allowing it - facilitating it by not voting. That is the ultimate lo-do. We should know better. Sadly some of us don´t and may never get it.

Dead babies washing up on the shore of the Rio Grande and Zero and the family Zero are going on vacation to the Vineyard? Geraldo? Shep? NY Times? Washington Post? Chicago Tribune? Anyone out there?

Imagine President Romney, Bush (either one) or Reagan doing the same thing? (I know it is unimaginable because none of those men would have let this invasion get as far as it has and all of them good men and good Christians whose hearts would be torn open thinking their policies were causing this misery.) The press of course would never comment or begrudge those presidents their well earned vacations. Of course they wouldn´t. NOT!!!!! There would be pictures on the front pages of every news organization showing those precious little babies juxtaposed with pictures of anyone of the those presidents enjoying their vacation with their one percenter friends. You wouldn´t be able to turn on a news program (including Fox)or listen to a radio news story without the comparison of death and the accompanying description of luxurious living at the Vineyard. But with President Zero, nothing to see here. Disgusting.

I agree with #47. I am 72 years old and have voted in every election for the last 50 years. I wasn´t always happy with my choice but at least my candidate was more conservative than his opponent. I do not understand how someone can stay home just because their perfect candidate didn´t win the primary.

I would have voted for the devil himself over Barack Obama. Look what we have elected... a committed Marxist, a Muslim sympathizer and an anti-American as President. It could not have been worse. My 11 year old grandson would make a better President.

Conservatives raise call to strip
jihadists of US citizenship,
as Ted Cruz pushes exile
Washington Times, by Kellan Howell    Original Article

Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, told a crowd of 3,000 at a conservative summit in Dallas that Americans fighting with Islamic State militants should be exiled from the country saying, “we need to not let into this country any American who is fighting with ISIS.” But some conservative politicians say that banishing American jihadists doesn’t go far enough, and that those who leave the country to fight for militant groups like the Islamic State, Hamas, or al Qaeda should be stripped of their citizenship. On Friday, former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who is running for a U.S. Senate seat in neighboring New Hampshire, called for

One Judge to Decide the Future of Detroit

Detroit - In a trial set to open in the federal courthouse here on Tuesday, nothing short of this city’s future is at stake. If Judge Steven W. Rhodes approves a blueprint drawn up by Detroit officials to eliminate more than $7 billion of its estimated $18 billion in debts and to invest about $1.5 billion into the city’s now dismal services, it will mark the beginning of the end of the nation’s largest-ever municipal bankruptcy. The outcome will set this troubled city’s new course for the coming decades, perhaps longer. In deciding whether the city’s plan is equitable, feasible and in the best interest of creditors, Judge Rhodes will send significant messages

Philip Seymour Hoffman´s Accused
Drug Dealer Avoids Jail Time

The man arrested after Philip Seymour Hoffman died on Feb. 2 from a lethal combination of cocaine, heroin and other drugs avoided jail time on Thursday. Robert Vineberg was never charged with any connection to Hoffman´s death, but there were connections between the two. Vineberg had said that he and Hoffman were friends, but had lost touch in recent years. Some speculated that he was Hoffman´s drug dealer, though he insisted that he did not provide the drugs that killed the actor. The 58-year-old Canadian musician pleaded guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday to drug possession and faces five

Downton Abbey is getting extra political this year: the fifth season of the hit period drama takes place in 1924, the year of Britain’s first Labour party government and, consequently, a year of dramatic social change at the Crawley estate. Cast members such as Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter and Laura Carmichael are all returning, while guest-stars Anna Chancellor and Richard E. Grant will introduce a few new characters into the mix. Stray water bottles, however, are not expected to return.

David Cameron is expected to reject calls to force terror suspects to relocate, after being warned that it could breach their human rights. The Prime Minister will announce a series of emergency measures to tackle extremism, amid growing concerns about the threat posed by British jihadis returning from Iraq and Syria. However, it is “very unlikely” that he will reintroduce powers that would force jihadists to move away from their homes, despite requests from both police and security services. The Government has been advised that the move could be subject to legal challenge, and the measures have also been opposed by

Federal study on lesbian

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

In the wake of the televised beheading of American journalist James Foley, there have been urgent calls among some in the media for an intensified U.S. military response to the Islamic State group — also known as ISIL — responsible for Foley’s gruesome murder and a host of other barbaric atrocities across northern Iraq and Syria. There is also, understandably, some alarm, because ISIL has racked up a string of tactical victories in the Sunni-dominated regions of Iraq, culminating in the taking of the giant hydroelectric dam near Mosul. The principal complaint among the armchair quarterbacks is that the U.S. failed to neutralize the growing

Germany will send high-end rifles, tank-busting weapons and armored vehicles to aid Kurdish fighters battling Islamic extremists in Iraq, officials said Sunday. Germany´s defense minister said the arms would be sent in three shipments, starting next month, and would initially be enough to equip a brigade of 4,000 Peshmerga fighters. "This is in our security interest," Ursula von der Leyen told reporters in Berlin. Germany joins other European countries who have pledged to provide arms to the Kurds fighting the Islamic State group that has swept into northern Iraq in recent months. In total, the shipments will include 8,000 G36 assault rifles

He has opened a number of restaurants around the country, including Olives, Figs, and Fish Club. He’s also been a regular on television programs including ‘‘Iron Chef USA.’’ He has written several cookbooks and has been honored by the James Beard Foundation for excellence and achievement in cuisine.

Progressives really, really, really wanted to hear from Hillary Clinton on the events in Ferguson, Mo., where an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9, sparking days of unrest in that small city outside St. Louis and elsewhere. Al Sharpton said he wanted to smoke Clinton out on Ferguson and suggested that if she ran in 2016, he would be a thorn in her side on civil rights issues. (Snip) But rather than just listing the statistics, she got personal by asking whites to put themselves in the shoes of black Americans: Imagine what we would feel and what we would do if white drivers were three

Rep. Mike Rogers: Obama’s

President Obama’s foreign policy is in “absolute free-fall” amid the rise of the Islamic State, and Western allies no longer view the U.S. as a leader in confronting religious extremism in the Middle East, the House intelligence chairman said Sunday. Rep. Mike Rogers, Michigan Republican, said the White House sat on its hands while Islamic fighters grew in influence, recruited abroad and seized swaths of Iraq and Syria. “Europe has obviously stood up and said, we have a huge problem. [U.K. Prime Minister] David Cameron came out and said, not only do we have a problem, here’s my plan to deal with it,” he told “Fox News Sunday.”

In the past two weeks, President Obama has twice interrupted vacation and fundraising trips to take presidential planes to Washington for a brief period, only to turn around and fly back to his earlier location — once after just a few hours in the White House. Why the peripatetic travel schedule? Well, there was a wedding and a bachelor party involved — and an expensive mix of socializing, work, and vacation. On Thursday, the White House announced Obama would travel to Westchester, N.Y., on Friday to attend a Democratic fundraiser. The president would then travel on to Newport, R.I., later in the day for another fundraiser.

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

Some time ago I contrasted the reaction a conservative would get if he were in the same room with the two most consequential politicians of the 1990s, Bill Clinton and Rudy Giuliani. If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week. [Snip] In the president’s exact words: “We don’t have a strategy yet.” When that bizarre statement hit the news outlets, the White House spin team flew into full-on operation (ie panic) mode and began tweeting to the effect that what the Commander-in-Chief had actually meant was that there was “a range of options” which were still

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

A whopping 95 percent of respondents to a BBC straw poll have said that they think multiculturalism in Britain is a failure. The poll was taken yesterday morning during the BBC’s Saturday Morning Live show, and asked “Is multiculturalism working?” Just 5 percent said “Yes”; 95 percent said “No”. Breitbart London’s James Delingpole was a guest on the show. During the discussion of the results, he said: "I think the thwacking great majority in that poll says it all.
