Obama’s ‘schmoozing’ to
cause holiday travel havoc

New York Post, by Emily Smith

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/28/2014 5:29:21 AM

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear. Obama will then fly

"Hello all you 1% Wall Street Honchos. Let me be clear - at some point you´ve made enough money. Unless you hand that money to me so I can redistribute it to the Democrat base in exchange for votes. Thank you, and to each according to his needs and all that..." - Dear Leader BHO

The left as the gall to complain about donations from the Koch Brothers but their high roller donors grow on trees,it seems.This is the same crowd that whines about getting money out of politics.As with all liberal screeds and schemes,they happily exclude themselves while GOP is straddled by playing by the rules.

The Wall St.crooks were chewing their nails off over a possible interest rate increase which is really needed.Now we find out the old hag at the IMF is a crook herself and Yellen is a total joke as the fed chairman.

To all the donors who will be attending these soirées, you may be rich but you are a bunch of chumps. Look at this country and truthfully tell us Obama is worth one dime. Your fortunes may have increased under him, but your country is collapsing. The poor are much worse off. The middle class is disappearing. There are no jobs and therefore no hope on the horizon for millions of Americans. The racial divide has never been wider. Health care is a disaster. We are being invaded by the third world. Your money may insulate you from the reality of a country molded in Obama´s ideology, but eventually, you too will feel the pain. It is inevitable. When that day comes, know it was people like you who helped destroy the very country that has allowed you to prosper. Enjoy your party with your BFF. You deserve each other.

He´s going out of his way looking for more and more ways to show his disdain for most Americans. He´s probably feeling very gleeful knowing he´s messing up this weekend for many. It´s always about him - except for accepting blame for something!

Is it just me or does it seem that the security precautions for this mutt are unparalleled ? I know that many ( probably most) don´t like him but there´s something about the fact that they had to close down part of a town and then erect a tent for him to literally cross the street between fundraising locations.
There is some subtle message to all of this and it has something to do with the racial narrative. Just can´t quite grasp it.

1. The states of NY and RI are deep blue for Dems, so having Ofreak disrupt their holiday getaways is great. Highways around Purchase in Westchester County , for ex, will be closed if they are anywhere Obama´s 40 SUV motorcade and the home he where he will be passing his golf bag around in for checks.

2. Having 250 bribers at the Purchase fund raiser is why Democrats love big government: They get money from companies to have the Dems regulate them less or to regulate them favorably. Bribes are from established big businesses who don´t create jobs or new products, so our economy stagnates. Small & start up companies can´t afford $32,500 bribes, so they disappear into a regulatory nightmare.

This is a classic example of feeding the crocodile in hopes of getting eaten last.

If smidgen ultimately gets his way, his government will simply take over the one percenters´ bank accounts, investments and properties. They probably already have the means to electronically empty those offshore accounts.

This is what happens when idiots vote for an IDIOT! This Community Organizer is set in his ways. I read his book or Bill Ayers book Dreams of my father and when he was on duty as community organizer he had two black women working under him who were doing all the work. They wanted to quit and were near a nervous breakdown, as Opie stood by twildding his thumbs. When it was time for awards he excepted them and made no mention of these two women. Now if things went wrong he would have exposed these two as the culprits. This is how this Empty Suit works. The idiots on Wall Street paying to see this fool is unbelievable, but I guess as long as the QE´s keep coming into the mkt they are happy with a bubble stock mkt. I ask WHEN WILL PEOPLE WAKE UP!

Not one good thing for America has come out of the Obama presidency - not one, blasted thing! It´ll be no different this weekend, or next, or next year, or in 2016 and up until mid-January 2017.

Americans certainly have a lot to fear from ´dear leader´ during this time period which will seem like an eternity. And Obama will be enjoying every minute of the further deterioration of our American spirit, international influence, security and economy.

One thought that went through my mind as I read this article was the fact that all of these rich fat cat Dims don´t really do any hard work to earn their money. In one way or another, they depend on the working poor and middle class to toil daily in order to make products that are sold and work in every facet of the economy. And this includes Obozo. Now, I´d like to be rich as they are, but I would prefer to make it the old fashion way. Work for it and earn it. Not pay $32500.00 for getting Obozo´s attention and get the perks that will come by making a tax deductible contribution. And along with that thought, just what are these people going to do when there is no more middle class to perform all of that economic work? What is going to happen when they finally run out of other people´s money? We here all know it will happen sooner or later IF there are not significant changes in the way this country is run.

Note the Air Charter Service is going to lose the money that they rely upon to get them through quieter times.
It´s always the "little people" who pay with this traitor.
" “A flight restriction was issued banning operations in the NYC area due to the president’s visit on Friday for practically the whole weekend, causing major business losses and inconvenience for our passengers on the busiest weekend of the year. It is frustrating. We have had to move at least 10 flights and cancel a number of private charters, costing us thousands of dollars. We count on this weekend to get us through the quieter months of the year. This will create a perfect storm on a holiday Friday, creating air space havoc between New York City and Boston.”

During the 17th thru 19th and into the the 20th century up to WWII Britain proudly called itself "a nation of shopkeepers". Now it´s a nation of hereditary dole moochers. But this didn´t make the "elite" any less elite. If anything, they´re more elite, even farther above the hoi polloi. This is what 0bama is doing for America´s "elite". Back in 1996, Stanley and Danko wrote "The Millionaire Next Door". In the book they described how ordinary middle class people who displayed certain characteristics became millionaires. One of the amazing facts brought in the book was there were then 3 million middle class families with net worths´ of over $1 million. Most were small business owners or professionals. This must have scared the bejeesus out of the "elite". Can´t have all those commoners crawling all over Brae Burn country club don´t ya know. So 0bama and the Socialist dRats are destroying the middle class. Of course they´re not doing to benefit to the "elite", no, no, no. It´s being done in the name of "social justice". So America´s middle class, our "nation of shopkeepers" is being turned into a nation of hereditary dole moochers.

A neighbor, 24, who served in Iraq and is familiar with Obama´s comings and goings in Atlanta says he will only come and go from Dobbins Air Force Base for security purposes. Whole base goes on lockdown. No city airports for him, even with Maynard Jackson´s name added onto Hartsfield airport, which is another story. He says Obama is the most protected president, ever.

GOP edge grows in final stretch

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal.

A record 92,584,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in September, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 62.7 percent, a level it has not seen in 36 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Six times in the last twelve months, the participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent; but September´s 62.7 percent is the lowest since February of 1978. The participation rate is the percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population who participated in the labor force by either having a job or actively seeking one. Those not in the

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Thursday while speaking at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, President Barack Obama giggled and raised his arms as he mocked the Fox News Channel for it´s reporting on ObamaCare. Obama said, "There is a reason fewer Republicans, you hear them running around about ObamaCare, cause while good affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News it turns out its working pretty well in the real world."
