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 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.

Schoolchildren in Texas may be at risk from Ebola today after five children who attend four different Dallas schools came in close contact with the first patient diagnosed with the deadly virus on U.S. soil. Officials said on Wednesday that the students were in school this week after possibly being in contact with the patient over the weekend when he had become contagious with the deadly virus. The Ebola patient was named today as Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national in his mid-forties, who had traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20 to visit his family. Scroll down

Netanyahu, in a briefing in New York with reporters who accompanied him on his trip to the US, said that as Israel’s prime minister he did not understand the criticism of Jews legally buying and moving into property in Jerusalem. “Arabs in Jerusalem freely buy apartments, and nobody says that is forbidden.

The White House on Wednesday strongly criticized reports of Israeli settlement construction in East Jerusalem, on the same day that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Obama. Israeli officials have reportedly given final approval to the creation of more than 2,500 homes in East Jerusalem. "This development will only draw condemnation from the international community, distance Israel from even its closest allies [and] poison the atmosphere, not only with the Palestinians but also with the very Arab governments with which Prime Minister Netanyahu said he wanted to build relations," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said at a briefing.

Breitbart News previously reported that the legislation containing "Gun Violence Restraining Orders" was put forth by State Assembly members Nancy Skinner and Das Williams, both Democrats, following Elliot Rodger´s May 23rd Santa Barbara attack.

The quarantine is a precaution to make certain no one else is exposed in the event the crew became infected during transportation of the patient. The city of Dallas said the crew took all safety precautions during the transport process. “Our firefighters are in quarantine,” said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings in an interview with NBC 5 in Dallas “that took this guy to the hospital.” “We will place them into isolation per Dallas County and CDC recommendations,”

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

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

Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate.

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.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

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,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus
