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.

So the Kentucky Senate race, as Fixer Aaron Blake noted on Twitter, appears to have devolved into a contest over who is holding a gun and how. In his latest salvo, however, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) has pretty convincingly won the debate. You may recall/do recall/should recall that on Monday, his opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) suggested that McConnell wasn´t a real Kentuckian because he once held an antique rifle in the air. (See above.) The spot featured Grimes shooting skeet while talking about her campaign platform and how she is different than President Obama. Then McConnell responded

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff raised the possibility Tuesday that U.S. troops could become involved in ground attacks against the Islamic State, despite repeated pledges to the contrary from President Obama. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee that U.S. military advisers are helping Iraqi government forces prepare for a major offensive to reclaim territory seized by the Islamic State in recent months. Although the advisers have been assigned primarily to assist with planning and coordination, Dempsey for the first time suggested that they eventually could go into the field on combat missions.

Wallace’s comment came as she and her co-hosts were discussing conservative commentator’s Charles Krauthammer recent remark that Obama is a “narcissist.” Wallace noted that as a former psychiatrist, Krauthammer was “offering a semi-expert opinion” on Obama and compared the president to Vice President Joe Biden who’s widely regarded as a people person.

House Republicans emerged from a Tuesday morning conference meeting predicting a proposal to arm Syrian rebels to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will pass — but only if Democrats provide significant support. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) said he wasn’t sure his amendment granting President Obama’s request for congressional authority would be backed by a majority of Republican lawmakers, many of whom expressed deep reservations about the plan. And Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), a member close to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), predicted that Democrats would have to supply a significant number of votes

Illinois has had the worst recovery from the recession of any state in the country, the Illinois Policy Institute reported this month: "There are nearly 300,000 fewer Illinoisans working today than in January 2008, and 170,000 fewer payroll jobs.

In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

Department of Justice is launching a new program today in partnership with the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center that will train "community leaders" like teachers and social workers to monitor their communities for signs of radicalization. (snip) In his announcement of the initiative, Attorney General Eric Holder described the program as a way to "be both innovative and aggressive in countering violent extremism and combating those who would sow intolerance, division, and hate" in the homeland. He labeled it an expansion of existent efforts to "to identify threats before they emerge, to disrupt

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration´s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night. [Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and
