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.

Illegal immigrants protest
outside White House, with

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/28/2014 2:28:16 PM     Post Reply
Illegal immigrant demonstrators were protesting outside the White House on Monday – but don’t expect America’s immigration officers to intervene. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official indicated that even if the protesters end up getting arrested by D.C. police, they’d have to be serious criminals for ICE to get involved. “Unless the individuals meet ICE’s enforcement priorities, it’s unlikely that the agency would get involved in the case,” the official told FoxNews.com. Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases -- those caught in the

Obama nominates religious freedom

President Obama on Monday announced a long-waited nominee for the job of "religious freedom" ambassador, after the post sat vacant for nine months. Rabbi David Nathan Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, was chosen for the position of ambassador at large for international religious freedom, which is subject to Senate confirmation. (Snip) The post, however, has been problematic for the Obama administration since the beginning. The post, which was created for the purpose of promoting and defending religious freedom around the world, initially sat vacant for two years

U.S. appeals court strikes down

A U.S. appeals court struck down Virginia´s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on Monday, the second appeals court to come out in favor of gay marriage. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, ruled 2-1 to affirm a February ruling by a federal judge who struck down the state ban as unconstitutional. "Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the (U.S. Constitution´s) Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance," the decision said. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down same-sex

Richmond, VA - Jury selection was on the agenda Monday for opening day in the corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife in Richmond. Bob and Maureen McDonnell are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the CEO of a dietary supplements company in exchange for helping promote his products. (Snip) McDonnell was a rising national star in the Republican party and was considered a possible Mitt Romney running mate in 2012 before the federal investigation ruined his political future. Romney reportedly donated $10,000 to the couple's legal defense

Pro-Palestinian activists in the San Francisco Bay Area are planning to block the Port of Oakland this Saturday to prevent two commercial shipping tankers partially owned by the Israel Corporation from docking and unloading. Protesters plan to block two Zim Integrated Shipping Ltd. commercial vessels, because 32 percent of the company is owned by Israel Corporation — Israel’s largest holding company, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Organizers of the event include the Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace and Justice, which describes itself as an anti-war group that “works actively to promote a just solution to the

Top House and Senate negotiators reached an agreement that includes $15 billion to help ease U.S. military veterans’ long waits for care, according to a summary congressional staffs are providing to veterans’ groups. The deal expands the type of non-VA hospitals and clinics where veterans could receive care, authorizes leases for 27 new VA facilities, and allows the Department of Veterans Affairs secretary to fire senior executives and create penalties for falsifying data. (Snip) The deal includes $10 billion in emergency funding to give veterans who can’t get a VA medical appointment the option to receive non-VA care, and $5 billion to pay

U.S. spying programs are making government sources too skittish to divulge sensitive information to reporters, especially on computer-based technology, making it difficult for journalists to hold powerful entities to account, according to a 120-page report released Monday. The American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch said it interviewed dozens of journalists, lawyers and senior government officials for its joint report, which found these professionals are “adopting elaborate steps or otherwise modifying their practices to keep communications, sources, and other confidential information secure in light of revelations of unprecedented U.S. government surveillance of electronic communications and

The United States government has delivered almost three quarters of a million weapons to Afghanistan’s army and police since 2004 but can’t track where those arms went, according to a new report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, known as SIGAR. (Snip) Training and equipping the Afghan National Police and Afghan National Army has been central to President Obama’s Afghanistan policy. But arming the police and army has been plagued by a lack of accountability, the report says. The weapons distributed to Afghan forces include 465,000 small arms, the report says. But that number might not be accurate,

Ohio sheriff sends bill to
Mexico for cost of jailing illegals

The sheriff of Butler County in Ohio said his community has become so overwhelmed with illegals that he sent a letter to Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto — billing him for the costs associated with jailing them. His letter and bill didn’t really get the intended response. “The [U.S.] federal government sends me a letter and said I violated a treaty of like, 1790,” Sheriff Richard Jones said, The Blaze reported. “I [had] sent him a bill for the prisoners that are in my jail. They came here illegally. I’ve not gotten any money from them, but I billed them so much. And I’ll tell you what I got in return: My life was threatened.”

Drone schools spring up in the US

Capitalizing on an anticipated boom in the unmanned-aircraft industry, several US universities and colleges are launching training programs for future drone pilots. The problem: the US Federal Aviation Administration says its rules barring commercial use of drones apply to teaching programs as well, effectively prohibiting students from hands-on instruction. So the schools are teaching tomorrow’s drone pilots with simulators, textbooks and more novel workarounds. (Snip) “We don’t have to do much recruiting. They come to us,” said Dan Macchiarella, Embry-Riddle’s chairman of aeronautical science.

President Obama is re-naming an African fellowship program in honor of the late South African freedom fighter Nelson Mandela. Obama will make the announcement Monday during a town-hall-style meeting with guests who participated in the inaugural — and soon to be re-named — Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, officials said. Discussing the fellowship program during a visit to South Africa last year, Obama said that "we want to engage leaders and tomorrow´s leaders in figuring out how we can best work together." The meeting is one in a series of upcoming events dedicated to U.S.-African relations,

Sarah Palin has gone rogue again, this time launching her own Internet channel. “Tired of media filters? Well, so am I,” the former Alaska governor proclaimed Sunday on her Facebook page. “So let’s go rogue and launch our own member-supported channel. “ In a video on sarahpalinchannel.com, Palin calls the new subscription-based network a “community” where she and viewers can share ideas. “I want to talk to directly to you on our channel on my terms and no need to please the powers that be,” she says, promising to go beyond soundbites and to “cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television. The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel. The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” that Kerry’s ceasefire proposal, which contained

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the "end of summer." Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn´t have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment.

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

Sunday on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her "proud to be an American." Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama´s current lack of direction in world leadership. "We have to go back out and sell ourselves," Clinton said. "It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers.

In 2012, four years after sort-of-stumping-but-not-really for her mother’s presidential campaign, Chelsea Clinton sat down for a lengthy, laudatory profile for Vogue. “Historically, I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye,” she said. “And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life.” Last April, Clinton told Fast Company magazine much the same thing. As she also did with NBC’s Brian Williams, who interviewed Clinton after she was hired by the network as a “special correspondent” — albeit one with no journalism experience. Her starting salary: $600,000 a year. “For most of my life I did deliberately

The Catholic Church—through the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration—both paved the road for Barack Hussein Obama’s ultimate takeover of Free West society and continues to actively enable the Fundamental Transformation of America by sinking the US in a tsunami of illegal aliens. In coming to Obama’s aid in erasing forever America’s borders, the bishops sold the USA out, including its Catholics, for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver. In biblical terms, Obama and the Catholic bishops—who both birthed his progress to the seat of power and back him on his Fundamental Transformation mission—are in in league with the devil.

VILLA PARK, Ill. — Fast food workers from across the country have voted in suburban Chicago to escalate their campaign for higher wages and union representation by including civil disobedience. More than 1,300 workers gathered today in Villa Park, Illinois. Some workers say they’re prepared to engage in sit-down strikes and organize more workers in their campaign to win $15-an-hour wages and a union. Their actions so far have included one-day strikes and a protest outside this year’s McDonald’s Corp. shareholder meeting. Industry officials say a $15 wage would hurt job creation, and that the solution is more education and

World leaders are increasingly pointing to U.S. President Obama’s failures in the Middle East. Some are direct and blunt. For example, during his recent visit to Brazil, Russian President Vladimir Putin was asked by journalists about U.S. sanctions against Russia due to the Ukrainian crisis. While naturally condemning such moves, part of his response was to accuse the Obama administration of “encouraging war between neighboring states.” In the same context, Putin added: American objectives have not been realized, nor have they accomplished anything, because everything has collapsed. Afghanistan faces problems, and Iraq and Libya are falling apart. Egypt also was
