Obama Returns to Hawaii at an Added Cost of Over $ 7Million

January 2, 2013


BEFORE THE ELECTION, OBAMA VOWED HELPING SANDY HOOK VICTIMS WITH FEDERAL AIDE… The Bill crafted by Republicans became so top heavy with “pork” it died before it came up for a vote.  Not even attempt from Obama at a special Executive Order to help these poor people out. He got their vote…  nothing in it for him at this point in time…


Barack Obama proves once again he has absolutely no shame.  Puffing his chest out and claiming a fiscal cliff victory and a “balanced” approach that raises taxes without reducing the size of government, Barack Obama then zoomed away aboard Air Force One to return to Hawaii and the golf course – at an estimated cost of $3 million dollars just for the flight to the American taxpayer.

Air Force One is known to cost about $180,000 an hour to fly. Based on an estimated 18 hours roundtrip flying time for the jet between Washington and Honolulu, the travel cost alone of Obama’s decision to return to Hawaii amounts to around $3.24 million. And that doesn’t include the price tag for the massive security operation required to move the president or the cost of the cargo plane that follows Air Force One around.

…The price tag is in addition to more than $4 million that is already being spent on the Obamas’ Hawaii idyll, bringing the total cost of the excursion to well over $7 million.  LINK

“More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said.


Senate Report Confirms Obama Lied When He Linked Benghazi To Mohammed Film On September 18th…

( – Three days after CIA and State Department eyewitnesses reported on Sept. 15 that there had been no protest in Benghazi, Libya, before terrorists attacked the U.S. diplomatic mission and a CIA facility there on Sept. 11, President Barack Obama and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney both publicly linked the attacks, which killed four Americans, to protests against an anti-Muslim video that had been posted on YouTube.

Carney did it at the White House press briefing on Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Obama did it later that same day in a taped interview with David Letterman.

However, according to a new report by the Senate Homeland Security Committee, personnel working at the CIA “Annex” in Benghazi on Sept. 11 reported on Sept. 15 that there had been no protest in Benghazi that day, and State Department security personnel who survived the Benghazi attacks told FBI interviewers on Sept. 15 and Sept. 16 that they, too, had seen no evidence of any protest before the attacks.

At the White House briefing on Sept. 18, Carney said that there was a protest in Benghazi on Sept. 11 against the anti-Muslim YouTube video and that the attacks there were “sparked” by protests. Obama, appearing on David Letterman’s show that same day, instantly referred to the video and called its maker a “shadowy character” when Letterman asked him what had happened in Benghazi . . .

    Family escapes Australian ‘tornadoes of fire’ by clinging to jetty for 3 hours

    As “tornadoes of fire” roared toward their home, the Holmes family fled and then jumped into the sea, clinging to a jetty for three hours to escape wildfires that have devastated Australia.

    The blaze spread swiftly in the Tasmanian town of Dunalley, Tim Holmes said. “The next thing we knew everything was on fire, everywhere, all around us,” he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

    Holmes said he sent his wife Tammy and their five grandchildren — who are aged between almost 2 and 11 — to the jetty to seek refuge from the flames, which destroyed three homes owned by the family. “There was no other escape,” he added.

    Holmes sent a text message to his daughter, Bonnie Walker, showing her children in the water.

    “It’s still quite an upsetting image,” Walker told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. “It’s of all of my five children underneath the jetty, huddled up to neck deep sea water, which is cold. I knew that that would be a challenge to keep three non-swimmers above water and with only my mom, dad and our eldest daughter.

    “I spent a lot of time with good friends and prayed like I never prayed before and I think those prayers have been answered.”

    Holmes recalled how the fire “raged for three hours” on the shore on Friday, surrounding the family with smoke. “Everything was on fire and it was just exploding all over the place,” he added.

    They managed to escape after Holmes recovered his dinghy. Walker was reunited with her children on Saturday.

    Bill Clinton named ‘Father of the Year’

    Clinton was named the “Father of the Year” by the National Father’s Day Council on Wednesday.

    The group selected Clinton for his “profound generosity, leadership and tireless dedication to both his public office and many philanthropic organizations,” Dan Orwig, chairman of the National Father’s Day Committee, said in the announcement.

    The award will be presented at a luncheon in June.

    My son called last night with news. We have a new baby on the way.

    Pink came to mind as soon as he said it.. we shall see..
    But who really cares, as long as it’s healthy.

    When the nurse brought the new babies into me, I always unwrapped their blankets,counted all their fingers and toes and marveled at this miniature human miracle. sigh..

    Hillary Clinton silent on long-term plans after leaving State Department

    Outgoing secretary says be ‘stepping off the very fast track’ after John Kerry takes over but offers no hint on what comes next

    Wednesday 9 January 2013

    ‘Obviously, it’s somewhat bittersweet,’ Clinton said of her final weeks at the State Department.

    US secretary of state Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday she would step off the fast track “for a little while” when she leaves the State Department

    Speaking to reporters for the first time since a stomach virus, concussion and blood clot kept her out of public view for nearly a month, Clinton said she wanted to ensure a seamless transition to senator John Kerry, who has been nominated by President Barack Obama to succeed her.

    But she gave no hint as to whether she may ultimately run again for US president. “Obviously, it’s somewhat bittersweet,” Clinton, who came back to the office on Monday, said of her final few weeks as secretary of state. She said she had “the most extraordinary experience” as secretary of state.

    “I am very much looking forward to doing everything we can these last few weeks to resolve and finish up wherever possible and then to … have a very smooth, seamless transition to senator Kerry to continue the work,” she said.

    Asked if retirement came next, Clinton replied: “I don’t know if (that is the) word I would use, but certainly stepping off the very fast track for a little while.”

    Clinton fell ill with a stomach virus in early December. She then became dehydrated and fainted, leading to a concussion. During a check-up after that, she was diagnosed with a blood clot, hospitalized and treated with blood thinners.

    The 65-year-old former first lady and US senator ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008 but was defeated by Obama. Clinton is often mentioned as a potential White House candidate again in 2016, although last month she sought to play down that possibility.

    Hillary Clinton Rules Out ‘Retirement’

    Daniel Halper
    January 9, 2013

    Though she’s expected to leave her post at the State Department soon, Hillary Clinton today said she’s not going into “retirement.” Clinton returned to work yesterday after missing almost a month, according to the State Department, due to ill health.

    Here’s Clinton’s exchange with a reporter, which she had today in Washington:

    QUESTION: So things – you’re ready – you’re back in the swing of things –

    SECRETARY CLINTON: I am back —

    QUESTION: — even though it’s closing down your operation?

    SECRETARY CLINTON: Yeah. It’s obviously somewhat bittersweet, because I’ve had the most extraordinary experience, and I work with just an amazing team of people. But I’m very much looking forward to doing everything we can these last few weeks to resolve and finish up wherever possible and then to have a very smooth, seamless transition to Senator Kerry to continue the work.

    QUESTION: And then retirement?

    SECRETARY CLINTON: I don’t know that that’s the word I would use, but certainly stepping off the very fast track for a little while.

    There is much speculation that Clinton will run for president in the 2016 election. In 2008, she failed to receive the Democratic presidential nomination.

    Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Testimony Has a Date

    Jan 8, 2013

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify on the State Department’s involvement — and failures — in the September attacks in Benghazi, Libya, on January 22, one day after President Obama’s inauguration on the Washington Mall. Senator Bob Corker, who serves on the Senate’s Foreign Service Committee, revealed the date during an on-air interview Tuesday afternoon with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell :

    “I had some very good conversations with her chief of staff,” Corker told Mitchell. “My sense is, her hearing probably will take place the morning of the 22nd.” […]

    “She’s anxious to want to come up and testify on Benghazi, and I think that’s an important thing both for her and for our entire country,” Corker said.

    News you won’t see on Drudge or anywhere else:

    Breaking news! Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts schedules a case by Attorney Taitz regarding Obama’s forged IDs to be heard in conference before the full Supreme Court

    January 9, 2013

    Press release!

    Law offices of Orly Taitz

    Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States John Roberts scheduled a case by attorney Orly Taitz dealing with Barack Hussein Obama’s use of forged IDs to be heard in conference before the full Supreme Court. The case titled Noonan, Judd, MacLeran, Taitz v Bowen provides a mountain of evidence of Barack Obama using a last name not legally his, forged Selective Service application, forged long form and short form birth certificate and a Connecticut Social Security number 042-68-4425 which was never assigned to him according to E-Verify and SSNVS. Additionally, this case provides evidence of around one and a half million invalid voter registrations in the state of California alone.

    Please, keep in mind, Richard Nixon was reelected and sworn in, but later was forced to resign as a result of Watergate. over 30 high ranking officials of Nixon administration including Attorney General of the United States and White HouseCcounsel were indicted, convicted and went to prison. ObamaForgery gate is a hundred times bigger then Watergate. More corrupt high ranking officials, US Attorneys, AGs and judges were complicit, committed high treason by allowing a citizen of Indonesia and possibly still a citizen of Kenya Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barack (Barry) Soebarkah, aka Barack (Barry) Soetoro to usurp the U.S. Presidency by use of forged IDs and a stolen Social security number.

    Got to give Orly Taitz credit for perseverance. A hearing in conference by the SCOTUS regarding Obama’s multitudinous forgeries, is the furthest anyone has gotten in regard to Obama’s illegal status as president. We can hope for a miracle if this Supreme Court will stand up for America. Now that they know the entire plan of where the usurper is taking the country.

    Obamacare Amendment Forbids Gun and Ammo Registration

    Good news — it has become known that hidden deep within the massive 2800-page bill called Obamacare there is a Senate Amendment protecting the right to keep and bear arms.

    It seems that in their haste to cram socialized medicine down the throats of the American people, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Barack Obama overlooked Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.

    According to reports, that amendment says the government cannot use doctors to collect “any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition.”

    CNN is calling it “a gift to the nation’s powerful gun lobby.”

    And according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), that’s exactly right. He says he added the provision in order to keep the NRA from getting involved in the legislative fight over Obamacare, which was so ubiquitous in 2010.

    Now we really know why HillaryCare never went through when the Clintons were in the WH. The Republicans have been the architects of the NWO. Their plan, all along, has been destroy the middle class and socialize medicine.

    I know Hillary worked hard formulating an affordable HC plan for Americans. Just another reason why Republicans joined ranks with Democrats supporting Obama. You can’t trust Obama or a Republican.

    Obama Voters Furious About Tax Hikes

    Now, now. Calm down. Yes, I know you voted for Obama, but didn’t you ever stop to think that he’d tax you, too? You didn’t?


    Disillusioned Obama voters are waking up to face the reality that Obama didn’t exempt them in his quest to steal money from all Americans to pay for his expanding government. It turns out that those making $30,000 a year will pay more taxes than those making $500,000 because of the deal Obama pushed for after the fiscal cliff debacle.

    Obama voters, the joke’s on you.

    Oh, one other little tidbit. The Democrats want to find $1 trillion more in taxes in 2013.

    The message is sinking in. Here are some tweets from Obama voters:

    @CZebari22 Damn the taxes killed me. I should have voted Romney

    @crushonchrissy I’m starting to regret voting for Obama.

    @gekka_88 I have a friend who voted for Obama publicly complaining about the new #SS tax raise. I would just like to say: You did this to yourself.

    @VAisforlovas But really how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama

    One comment on the liberal site whined:

    What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up? My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”

    Another comment, by “DemocratToTheEnd” was, “My boyfriend has had a lot of expenses and is feeling squeezed right now, and having his paycheck shrink really didn’t help.”

    “Nancy Thongkham” gave a measured response to the new taxes she would have to pay: “F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!”

    “_Alex™” was more resigned: “Obama I did not vote for you so you can take away a lot of money from my checks.”

    “Dave” had the most honest reaction: “Obama is the biggest f***ing liar in the world. Why the f*** did I vote for him”?

    The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington estimated 77.1 percent of all taxpayers will see higher taxes.

    Obama voters, that means you.

    Confirmed: Aurora shooter James Holmes was on prescription meds and vaccines

    J. D. Heyes
    January 10, 2012

    What was the most deadly element involved in the mass murder of 12 people and the wounding of 58 others at the packed Aurora, Colo., theater premier of the newest “Batman” movie last summer?

    Was it the AR-15-type weapon used by James Holmes? The shotgun he had with him? The handgun he used?


    As it turns out it was probably a psychotropic medication he was most likely taking, a point raised by Natural News’ Jon Rappoport in August, just weeks after the massacre. [].

    Holmes had been treated by a psychiatrist

    The Denver Post reported Jan. 7 that, according to newly released court papers, police removed a number of prescription medication bottles – four, to be exact – from Holmes’ apartment shortly after clearing it of explosives in the days following the July 20 shootings. They also seized immunization records.

    “The disclosures come in a back-and-forth between prosecutors and defense attorneys over whether those items should be subject to doctor-patient confidentiality. The judge ultimately ruled in October that prosecutors could keep the items,” the paper said, adding that the names of the medications had been redacted from court documents.

    This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone who’s been following the correlation between these dangerous psychotropic drugs and mass murder. After all, earlier reports confirmed that Holmes was indeed being seen by a psychiatrist [], so there’s a better-than-average chance he, too, was on one of these dangerous medications.

    The same is true in the most recent shooting tragedy. We know that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, had psychological problems. We know, from what Louise Tambascio, a family friend of the shooter and his mother, told the CBS News program, “60 Minutes,” that Lanza “was on medication and everything….I knew he was on medication, but that’s all I know.”

    But what was he taking? What was Holmes taking? That we don’t know – yet.

    Like us David Kupelian, the managing editor for WorldNetDaily, is asking the right questions.

    “It has been more than three weeks since the shooting. We know all about the guns he used, but what ‘medication’ may he have used?” he wrote shortly after the Lanza murders. “So, what is the truth? Where is the journalistic curiosity? Where is the follow-up? Where is the police report, the medical examiner’s report, the interviews with his doctor and others?” writes David Kupelian at WorldNetDaily []

    And yet the national debate, if you can call it that, is focused strictly on the gun control and the Second Amendment, as evidenced by Vice President Joe Biden’s declaration that President Obama plans to use executive power to implement new gun control regulations via the federal agencies that fall under the Executive Branch, and New York Gov. Mario Cuomo’s promise to enact in his state the country’s toughest gun control laws.

    As usual, though, the corporate media has failed in its role as watchdog and truth-seeker. It has been left to alternative news outlets like ours and a few others to ask those probing, important questions: What kind of drugs were Holmes and Lanza taking? Who prescribed them? And these questions: What are some of the side effects of those medications? Can such medications cause patients to become violent?

    The medications-equals-violence link is well-established

    Here’s why it is vitally important for Americans to know what kind of medications Lanza and Holmes were taking – because of earlier, high-profile cases involving guns and psychotropic medications:

    – Columbine killer Eric Harris was taking Luvox which, like similar drugs Prozac and Zoloft are widely prescribed antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs. Luvox manufacturer Solvay Pharmaceuticals admitted that every 1 in 25 patients taking the drug developed mania, a dangerous condition leaving the patient violence-prone.

    – Patrick Purdy went on a shooting rampage in a schoolyard in Stockton, Calif., in 1989, an incident that triggered the initial push to ban “assault weapons.” Purdy, who killed five and wounded 30, had been taking the antidepressant Amitriptyline and the anti-psychotic drug Thorzine.

    – Fifteen-year-old Kip Kinkel killed his parents in 1998 then went to his school, Thurston High in Springfield, Ore., the next day and fired on his classmates, killing two and wounding 22 more. He was on Prozac and Ritalin.

    There are many, many more examples, but you get the point: There exists a distinct link between psychotropic drugs and violence, yet virtually no one in the public policy realm or the media (both of which depend on Big Pharma for donations or advertising dollars) wants to talk about it.

  14. January 10, 2013 5:21 pm

    I don’t know if anyone remembers reading, they may insist another school shooting take place after Sandy Hook. Well, it has-

    nothing like Sandy Hook, but definitely a sign they are not done waging their CONVINCING propaganda war on guns to further stampede the sheep.

    Shooting at California high school


    Taft Union High School

    UPDATED, 3:32 p.m.: The Kern County sheriff Donny Youngblood speaking at a press conference revealed that the injured student, a 16-year-old, is in critical but stable condition. The shooter is confirmed as a student. According to the sheriff, the gunman opened fire in a classroom.

    The suspect had numerous rounds in his pocket, shot at another student in the classroom of 28, but missed. A teacher’s head was grazed with a pellet, Youngblood said.

    The sheriff credited the teacher and a school administrator with talking down the suspect from shooting more students.

    UPDATED, 1:36 p.m.: The intractable fulcrums of the gun control debate swiftly reared their head on Twitter as news of this latest school shooting broke. While hundreds of tweets called for greater gun control, a number of people said the shooting was more evidence of the need for more armed teachers.

    One prolific tweeter told Piers Morgan (newly known for his anti-gun stance) that the Taft High shooting proved there should never be gun-free zones:

    @piersmorgan Shooting at Taft High School in Cali further proof to eliminate gun-free zones & arm all teachers/school personnel.
    — DropZ MuZik (@Dropz11) January 10, 2013

    UPDATED, 1:36 p.m.: AP reports that Kern County sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt says the suspect in custody is “believed to be a student.” One student and one teacher were injured.

    The shooter is believed to have used a shotgun, which has been recovered by police.

    The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein tweeted confirmation that the school campus is monitored daily by a uniformed deputy sheriff:

    Confirmed. Taft High School does have a uniform deputy sheriff monitoring campus “before, during and after school”
    — Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) January 10, 2013

    UPDATED, 1:30 p.m.: Via Reuters:

    A California ABC affiliate reported that sheriff’s deputies were going room-by-room to secure the school and that two people had been shot, but had no immediate word on their condition. It said the shooter had been apprehended by police.

    The station, 23ABC News, reported that some people had called the station from inside the school, where they were hiding in closets.

    UPDATED, 1:28 p.m.: Kern County Fire officials say one victim received only minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene, the other person was airlifted to Kern Medical Center with unknown injuries according to the local NBC affiliate.

    UPDATED, 1:12 p.m.: The dispatcher at Kern County sheriff’s office told Salon that at least two people have been injured and the school is being evacuated by SWAT teams. She said the situation is “not yet secure.” One suspect is in custody.

    On the same day Vice President Biden holds major gun control talks, reports are breaking on a shooting at a California high school in Taft, Kern County. According to ABC7, two people were shot and a gunman is in police custody.

    TAFT HIGH UPDATE: Officials say at least 2 shot; shooter now in police custody
    — ABC7 Eyewitness News (@ABC7) January 10, 2013

    An NBC local affiliate has expanded slightly on still-unclear details:

    It happened at about 9 a.m. and as of 9:30, students had been evacuated to the football field and there were reports one person was in custody.

    Details were still sketchy at 9:45 a.m. but the Sheriff’s Department has confirmed a shooter is in custody and at least two people have been wounded.
