WASHINGTON — As America’s first family enjoys its eighth and final vacation in Hawaii, new estimates put the price tag of the Obamas’ annual trip at $3.5 million or more. In total, the cost of the the first family’s personal or largely personal travel during the last eight years comes to $85 million – though that is likely to climb to $90 million after additional records are released, according to the conservative group Judicial Watch based on federal government records. The cost of Air Force One and other government planes as well as helicopters, cargo planes, armored cars, Secret Service

Quite the gravy train. The Soviets in the Kremlin didn´t have it so good.

There is a silver lining in this.

It´s gonna be real different for the Obama and the Mrs. on their next vacation in February 2017 when somebody asks them which of their credit cards they are going to pay their bill with.

I think 85 million is a low number . There were multiple vacation´s a year, the staff, multiple planes, the facilities, the golf course rentals.. 85 million may be the cost of place and air travel... but then there is all the shave iced and poi for family and guests ..and the Obama don´t travel light.
Her trip to China probably cost us that much money.. I think the press wants to down play the actual numbers. I will read it in the Russian Times.

Got 1 more vacation coming up for Mooch and the girls to go skiing before the End of his term !

And our MONEY will be NO object this time !

The U.S. spent more on the Obolas than the Brits spent on the royal family over the same time period.
We have to get a handle on the costs of the first family, no matter who is in office. including their random trips around the wotld. I am confident that President Trump will not spend the way the kenyan Klown´s family has spent the taxpayers money.

Congress should send him the bill and garnish his retirement to pay for it. I can only dream.

$85 million - he is truly spitting in our faces.

There needs to be a limit on this ripoff.
How about $100K per year for vacations? I consider that ULTRA generous.

Does ANY other employer offer all-expense-paid vacations to employees equal to 50% of gross salary?

No.

PITTSBURGH - For more than a century, the death of David Pierce has been a stain on Western Pennsylvania as the only victim of a lynching in the region. The African American man was said to have shot and killed Sanford White, a white superintendent of a coke works near Dunbar, Fayette County, on the morning of Dec. 19, 1899, after Mr. White intervened during a fight between Mr. Pierce and another white coke executive, Richard Cunningham. Pierce was described as a "Negro" and a "dangerous character" in the initial news report that went out over the telegraph coast to

Last week, the Obama administration put the finishing touches on a new policy that would deprive recipients of disability insurance and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) of their Second Amendment rights. The administration will now characterize those citizens as "mental defectives," thereby having their ability to own a firearm subject to the federal Gun Control Act. Supplemental Security Income helps blind, disabled, and elderly people with little to no income. Previously, it was understood that "mentally defective" referred to one´s mental health. Citizens who have been institutionalized against their will are restricted from owning a firearm. The new definition of "mentally

   

 

  


 
Israel Cabinet Minister Calls
Kerry Speech ´Pathetic´

JERUSALEM -- A senior Israeli Cabinet minister on Wednesday called U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry´s planned Mideast policy speech a "pathetic step," further heightening tensions between the two close allies as the Obama administration prepares to leave office. The comments by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan were the latest salvo in a toxic exchange following the U.S.´s refusal to veto a U.N. Security Council resolution last week that called Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem a violation of international law. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has slammed the resolution, and accused the U.S. of colluding with

Random Thoughts, Looking Back

Any honest man, looking back on a very long life, must admit -- even if only to himself -- being a relic of a bygone era. Having lived long enough to have seen both "the greatest generation" that fought World War II and the gratingest generation that we see all around us today, makes being a relic of the past more of a boast than an admission. Not everything in the past was admirable. Poet W.H. Auden called the 1930s "a low dishonest decade." So were the 1960s, which launched many of the trends we are experiencing so painfully today.

Apparently Kevin Williamson at National Review has jumped over that deadly lemming cliff, along with millions of Trump-maddened New York liberals. Williamson writes in NR today that "My own view is that Donald and Ivanka and Uday and Qusay are genuinely bad human beings and that the American public has made a grave error in entrusting its highest office to this cast of American Psycho extras. That a major political party was captured by these cretins suggests that its members are not worthy of the blessings of this republic..."

As night follows day, I knew Monday’s sentencing of Congressman Chaka Fattah to 10 years in prison would generate a firestorm of comments implicating the Inquirer and Daily News in Fattah´s betrayal of the public trust. Sure enough, when Fattah’s sentence was announced, the Philly.com commentariat declared that both news outlets should be hanging our heads in shame because, after all, we endorsed him! I can’t tell how how many times this response – Your fault! You endorsed him/her! — dominates the comments sections of stories detailing the latest lawmaker to be indicted or sentenced on corruption charges. Actually, that’s

This is almost unbelievable; liberals are still in mourning over Hillary Clinton’s Election Day loss to Donald Trump. A sociology professor at Yale named Jeffrey Alexander was interviewed by CBS News and said the following about the American liberals post-Trump’s victory: For the more liberal half of the United States, nothing rocked its sense of order more than the November election of Donald Trump as the 45th president. And because of that event, Alexander believes that thousands of Democrats are now experiencing symptoms we generally associate with personal trauma. “They have stopped smiling. They feel like crying. They feel tired, listless, as

WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) vowed last week to spend the new year and new Congress pushing for a “one person, one vote” scrapping of the electoral college. Durbin acknowledges this won´t come easily with a Republican House, Senate and White House, so he´s hoping a state-by-state workaround does the trick. By the time the last votes in the presidential election were counted this month, Hillary Clinton had 65,844,610, nearly as many as President Obama received in 2012, compared to Donald Trump’s 62,979,636, making the final gap 2,864,974 votes. Other candidates received 7,804,213 votes. The final electoral college vote was

Billionaire financier George Soros lashed out at President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday, calling him ´a con artist´ and a ´would-be dictator´ whose election this past November was a ´powerful boost´ to the ´forces of disintegration.´ Soros, the Hungarian-born magnate who supported Hillary Clinton´s candidacy as well as other liberal causes worldwide, says that the rise of Trump and his affinity for rulers like Russian President Vladimir Putin threaten the open society model championed by the European Union. ´Democracy is now in crisis,´ Soros writes in Project Syndicate. ´Even the US, the world´s leading democracy, elected a con artist and would-be dictator as its

The US has ordered 35 Russian diplomats to leave the country in retaliation for alleged interference in the presidential election — and imposed sanctions on Russian officials and intelligence services for hacking political sites and email accounts, officials said. The State Department gave the 35 diplomats and their families 72 hours to leave the Russian Embassy in Washington and consulate in San Francisco. The government officials were declared personae non gratae for acting in a “manner inconsistent with their diplomatic status.” President Obama also said Russians will no longer have access to two Russian government-owned compounds in the US —

Happy New Year, Hillary Clinton. I hope you enjoy being the subject of a probe by AG-designate Jeff Sessions, and whatever grand jury probes and subpoenas he sees fit to use in seeking recovery of all those emails you deleted and Bleachbitted in an effort to eradicate any evidence of their contents. You can now plan out your 2017 calendar with time left for grand jury testimony thanks to a ruling from DC Court of Appeals Judge Stephen Williams. His ruling reversed a lower court decision that halted FOIA lawsuits by Judicial Watch and Cause of Action that had sought

Since Election Day, one of the favorite pastimes of the media has been to catch a glimpse of the person who was expected to be our President-elect. Following her shocking loss to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has largely stayed out of the public eye, making only a handful of appearances, such as Harry Reid’s portrait unveiling and a party for the millionaires who donated to her campaign. With that in mind, we’ve been left largely with images snapped of Clinton by those who live in Chappaqua, New York, where Hillary resides. We’ve seen photos of her shopping and walking in
