EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama is getting off the island.

In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha’s Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for unspecified meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers.

The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. Part of the decision appears aimed at countering criticism that Obama is spending two weeks on a resort island in the midst of so many foreign and domestic crises.

Yet those crises turned the first week of Obama’s vacation into a working holiday. He made on-camera statements on U.S. military action in Iraq and the clashes between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. He called foreign leaders to discuss the tensions between Ukraine and Russia, as well as between Israel and Hamas.

“I think it’s fair to say there are, of course, ongoing complicated situations in the world, and that’s why you’ve seen the president stay engaged,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.

Obama is scheduled to return to Martha’s Vineyard on Tuesday and stay through next weekend.

Even though work has occupied much of Obama’s first week on vacation, he still found plenty of time to golf, go to the beach with his family and go out to dinner on the island. He hit the golf course one more time Sunday ahead of his departure, joining two aides and former NBA player Alonzo Mourning for an afternoon round.

Earlier in the week, Obama attended a birthday party for Democratic adviser Vernon Jordan’s wife, where he spent time with former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

That get-together between the former rivals-turned-partners added another complicated dynamic to Obama’s vacation. Just as Obama was arriving on Martha’s Vineyard, an interview with the former secretary of state was published in which she levied some of her sharpest criticism of Obama’s foreign policy.

Clinton later promised she and Obama would “hug it out” when they saw each other at Jordan’s party. No reporters were allowed in, so it’s not clear whether there was any hugging, but the White House said the president danced to nearly every song.

OBAMA FLASHBACK: ‘I SAID I’D END THE WAR IN IRAQ AND I ENDED IT’

White House support for jihadist groups in Libya & Syria greased the skids for ISIS

by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | AUGUST 8, 2014

President Obama’s decision to launch military action in Iraq belies public statements made over the past two years in which Obama and other top Democratic mouthpieces bragged about the administration ending the war in Iraq.

News coverage of Obama’s announcement to begin air strikes on ISIS targets as part of a “humanitarian” outreach is totally absent any mention of the fact that the Obama administration greased the skids for the growth and spread of ISIS as a result of its support for jihadists in both Libya and Syria.

The administration sent billions of dollars in aid and weapons to rebel groups in Syria, many of which became allied with or directly joined ISIS. As the New York Times reported, the CIA has also overseen “a secret airlift of arms and equipment” to rebels since early 2012.

Many of the rebel leaders in Libya whom the White House backed in their overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi also later crossed into Syria to join jihadist groups in the fight against Bashar al-Assad.

Indeed, as Rand Paul explained, the Obama administration created a “jihadist wonderland” by supporting militants in Libya and Syria which led directly to the rise of ISIS.

In addition to a policy which directly encouraged the spread of militant extremists throughout the region, the United States’ top allies – Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and Turkey – have all trained, funded and armed ISIS terrorists.

The video above speaks for itself but here’s a selection of choice quotes;

“Remind them that this is the president that ended the war in Iraq.” Michelle Obama.

“He has taken good care of our men and women in uniform, he has ended the war in Iraq.” Bill Clinton.

“We ended the war in Iraq.” Joe Biden.

“I’ve kept the commitments I’ve made, I told you we’d end the war in Iraq, we did.” President Obama.

“You know I say what I mean and I mean what I say – I said I’d end the war in Iraq, I ended it.” President Obama.

“Everything that American troops have done in Iraq, all the fighting and all the dying, the bleeding, and the building and the training and the partnering – all of it has led to this moment of success….we’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq.” President Obama.

While Obama and his acolytes repeatedly bragged about ending the war in Iraq, his administration’s policy of backing jihadist militants now threatens to enflame a new war which could engulf the entire middle east.

RICH: ‘Income Inequality’ Pimp Gets $243K to Teach One Class

Capture

August 6, 2014 By Matthew Burke

Robert.Reich
You just can’t spread the hypocrisy on any thicker than this.

Keynesian “economist” and former U.S. Secretary of Labor under Democrat President Bill Clinton, Robert Reich, who’s constantly sought moral highground preaching about the evils of “inequality” and excessive CEO pay (“wage theft from ordinary workers”), has a gig where he himself is grossly overpaid.

As reported by EAGnews.org, Reich himself may be guilty of, well let’s call it “tuition theft from the mouths of starving and indebted students,” to use leftist lingo.

Reich is paid $242,613 to teach “economics” at University of California-Berkeley, and is slated to teach just one class this fall semester.

On June 29, Reich preached on his public Facebook page, filled with Harry Reid-style demonization of the free market promoting (evil and rich) Koch Brothers:
“The moral crisis of our age has nothing to do with gay marriage or abortion; it’s insider trading, obscene CEO pay, wage theft from ordinary workers, Wall Street’s continued gambling addiction, corporate payoffs to friendly politicians, and the billionaire takeover of our democracy.”
Reich and others like him, have obtained riches pimping “social justice,” and “income inequality,” bastardizing the Founding Fathers vision of equality, which meant equality before the law, with no favoritism, not everybody robotically makes the same income as in the communist countries the left adores.

In April, TPNN reported that another Marxist “economist,” leftist Paul Krugman, was being paid $25,000 per month to push the “income inequality” agenda at the City University of New York (CUNY). Not to teach, mind you, but for a “modest role” in public events.

FOX News’ Greg Gutfeld blasted the news of Krugman’s “income inequality” hypocrisy, calling it, “like a fireman getting paid for arson.”

With the median household income in America approximately $51,000 per year, aren’t poverty pimps like Reich and Krugman just a bit overpaid?

Promoting communism in a capitalist country is very lucrative work if you can find it.

HILLARY CLINTON TO WALL STREET’S RESCUE?

Few political families are closer to Wall Street than the Clintons

by JON QUEALLY | COMMON DREAMS | JULY 8, 2014

Editor’s Note: As we noted yesterday the elite plan to swap out Clinton with “populist” Elizabeth Warren who, like Clinton, follows the neocon line on foreign policy. It is of paramount importance the elite keep the wars going as they pretend to institute economic reforms. So long as the Federal Reserve is allowed to exist, there will be no significant economic reform regardless of what figurehead occupies the Oval Office and despite the best wishes of naive liberals and progressives.

With an ascendent economic populism that rejects the dominance of large financial institutions, wealthy individuals, and powerful industries that have too much sway in Washington, DC, the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency has many asking whether or not the former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State has what it takes to challenge the status quo which allows Wall Street to rule supreme in the nation’s seats of power.

In a frontpage article exploring the question in the New York Times on Tuesday, the newspaper suggests that Wall Street sees Hillary Clinton as “a solution” to the populist trend—a person who can neutralize other members of the Democratic Party, like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown, calling for more aggressive economic reforms and who have tapped into the nation’s populist sentiment.

As the Times reports:

Few political families are closer to Wall Street than the Clintons. Their family foundation has raised millions from financiers and the foundations of big banks, and recently held its annual briefing for donors in the auditorium of Goldman Sachs’s headquarters in Manhattan. Major financial firms are stocked with Clinton alumni.

And the Clintons often interact with the titans of finance on the Manhattan charity circuit and during their vacations in the Hamptons. Last month, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton sat at a table with Hamilton E. James, president of the Blackstone Group, and mingled with the billionaire David H. Koch at a benefit for the Wildlife Conservation Society.

Clinton has been looked on with suspicion by progressives following high-paid speaking engagements with Goldman Sachs and other powerful Wall Street institutions since leaving her post at the State Department. And last month, Clinton put her weight behind the powerful biotech industry by speaking at their national conference, not only endorsing their business model but offering political advice on how to overcome public opposition to the use of genetically-modified seeds and industrial-scale, chemical-based agriculture.
Also this week, comments made by Clinton suggest her political strategy, if elected, would follow her husband’s well-worn tactic of “triangulation,” tacking to the political right as a way to curry favor with Republican and corporate interests, but doing so in a way that ameliorates the objections of progressives and liberals. Bill Clinton was famous for doing this when he passed “welfare reform” legislation and deregulated the financial industry in the nineties, both of which, according to many experts and analysts, say paved the way for the current economic crisis the country is now suffering.

The Obamas Have Spent Over $44,351,777.12 In Taxpayer Cash On Travel

The Obamas have spent over 44 million dollars in taxpayer money on travel and vacations. Some are even calling him the “most well-trvaeled, expensive” president in our nation’s history.

As Americans head off for the long holiday weekend, let’s take a look back at some of the president’s holiday spending.

Our president vacations a lot — we’re talking $44,351,777.12 worth of “a lot,” with most expenses charged to the American taxpayer.

As of March 2014, Obama has spent more time traveling internationally than any other president, taking 31 trips since assuming office in 2009. The 119 days spent overseas have cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

At the same point in their respective presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 116 days on 28 trips, Bill Clinton had spent 113 days on 27 trips and Ronald Reagan had spent 73 days on just 14 trips.

In 2010, Obama flew aboard Air Force One 172 times, nearly every other day. Just the cost of flying aboard Air Force One to Obama’s hometown of Chicago reportedly hovers around $180,000 per hour.

In addition to all of his international travel, the president spends a significant amount of time traveling with his family. The Obama family has taken vacations to exclusive beaches in New England, private clubs in Key Largo and, of course, luxurious beaches in Hawaii.

According to the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, beginning with the infamous New York “date night,” the Obamas have spent $44,351,777.12 in taxpayer cash on travel expenses.

The actual total cost may be higher, as the White House is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

“Here we have a president that gets on the budget line by line, but this apparently doesn’t apply to his travel,” president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, said in an interview with The Daily Caller.

Frequently missing from the data are the costs of housing the first family and staff, costs of prepositioning the Secret Service and their equipment, and other travel expenses such as meals and beverages.

“We’ve got this financial crisis here in Washington and the president and his family need to be more sensitive as to the cost concerned with his travel,” Fitton said. “We are especially concerned about the excessive luxury travel, such as his trip to Hawaii.”

In 2013 alone, President Obama incurred $7,396,531 in flight expenses for his family vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as a trip to California to appear on the Jay Leno show.

“The Obamas are abusing the public trust and the taxpayers with unnecessary luxurious vacations and travel,” Fitton said in a press release. “These staggering costs show why these documents were covered up and we had to sue in federal court to get them. Another transparency fail for the Obama gang.”

VIDEO: Race Hustler Jesse Jackson: ‘Eleven Southern States Have Gone Confederate Again’

Professional race hustler Jesse Jackson, Sr., who has made a lucrative career fanning the flames of racism, was given a forum on CNN with Wolf Blitzer last Thursday to discuss what he referred to as the “beauty” of Senator Thad Cochran’s use of dirty tricks against Tea Party-backed challenger, Chris McDaniel, in the highly contested Mississippi Senate GOP runoff.

Jackson, a “reverend” who retweeted in May that Pope Francis was a “half dead hum bug u were living with another man in a one bedroom apartment,” somehow contends that “eleven southern states have gone Confederate again.”

Evidence cited by Jackson is three states, South Carolina, Mississippi and Texas, that rejected federal Medicaid money in order to not further the ongoing crisis of government dependency.

“We must enforce the Voting Rights Act,” Jackson told Blitzer. “And of course address the fact that the eleven southern states have gone Confederate again on their agenda of the McDaniel variety.”

Reverend Jackson, who “counseled” fellow Democrat Bill Clinton after his famous affair, is the father of an illegitimate child due to an extramarital affair.

Hillary Clinton About Obama: ‘You Can’t Trust the Motherf***er’

Hillary Clinton About Obama: ‘You Can’t Trust the Motherf***er’

June 27, 2014 By Matthew Burke

Former Newsweek editor and best-selling author Edward Klein’s new book about the “Blood Feud” between the Clintons and the Obamas is sure to cause liberal/progressive/communist heads to spin within the Democrat Party.

While always acting lovey-dovey on stage and anywhere in public, Klein contends that the leftist quartet actually hate each other.

“Blood Feud,” a follow-up to Klein’s NY Times bestseller “The Amateur,” pants a picture of two two-faced couples filled with political greed, working together only with extreme reluctance and only when political expedience outweighs the couple’s mutual hatred.

According to Klein, two months after Hillary Clinton resigned from her position as Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary told a group of friends, over one too many glasses of wine, that, about Obama, “You can’t trust the motherf***er,” while claiming that “Obama has turned into a joke.”

The boozed-up rant took place in May of 2013, according to Klein, at Le Jardin Du Roi, a French restaurant near the Clinton mansion in Chappaqua, New York.

Klein says Hillary told her friends that the Clintons made a deal with the Obamas that they would help him get re-elected in 2012, in exchange for Obama’s support in getting Hillary elected to the presidency in 2016.

“He agreed to the arrangement but then he reneged on the deal. His word isn’t worth sh*t,” Hillary reportedly said.

Many have reported, and it’s no great secret that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama aren’t the best of friends, and even dislike each other. However Klein reported in “Blood Feud” that it goes much deeper than a casual distaste.

“I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Klein quotes Bill Clinton as having said about the Democrat president.

Klein claims that Valerie Jarrett, a top Obama adviser and longtime friend, and Michelle Obama nicknamed Hillary Clinton “Hildebeest,” comparing her to the ugly gnu that can be seen wandering the Serengeti region in Tanzania.

Highest Court: Obama Violated Constitution with Recess Appointments

Highest Court: Obama Violated Constitution with Recess Appointments

Attempt to restore constitutional balance to the executive branch

by Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | June 26, 2014

The Supreme Court has attempted to restore balance to the presidency by ruling that President Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he skirted the Senate and made recess appointments in 2012.

Since taking office, Obama has made 32 recess appointments. His record is surpassed by Ronald Reagan, who made 232 recess appointments during his tenure, and Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, who made more than 100 each.

The Court sharply curtailed the practice and nullified action Obama took during pro forma sessions held in the Senate.

Pro forma, Latin for “as a matter of form,” are sessions held when no formal business is conducted in the Senate and the House.

Pro forma sessions fulfill the obligation under the Constitution “that neither chamber can adjourn for more than three days without the consent of the other.”

Senate Republicans have used cursory pro forma sessions to prevent Obama from making recess appointments and circumventing Congress. In response, the Democrat majority in the Senate changed the rules to block Republicans from preventing the appointments.

The ruling by the Supreme Court on Thursday calls into question hundreds of decisions made by Obama’s labor board. The board was dominated by members appointed during recess. A new five member board approved by the Senate will now have to revisit those previous decisions.

The Obama administration argued Congress was on an extended holiday break when the president made his appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

The Court said the Senate was not actually in recess when Obama acted.

During arguments on Wednesday, Justice Stephen Breyer stated in his majority opinion that a congressional break must last at least 10 days to be considered a recess under the Constitution.
