OBAMA FAMILY TO AMERICA … LET THEM EAT CAKE.
Judicial Watch reports that the Obama Family 2015 Honolulu Christmas vacation cost taxpayers $3,590,313 in flight expenses alone. Good grief. As Americans struggle to get by and many have to work two and three jobs to keep their heads above water, let alone forgoing vacations, the Obama family lives the life of luxury on the back of hard working Americans. But wait, it’s not like they flew to Cuba to watch a baseball game as terrorism ripped across Belgium. Oh wait, he did.
Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained records from the Department of the Air Force revealing the Obama family 2015 Christmas vacation to Honolulu, Hawaii, cost the taxpayers $3,590,313.60 in flight expenses alone. According to the Air Force records, the Obamas used both Air Force One and a Boeing C-32A, the military equivalent of a Boeing 757, which was apparently use to transport the First Lady.
Judicial Watch also has obtained records from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealing that President Obama’s four trips to New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Palm City, Florida in 2014 and 2015 cost taxpayers at least $286,416.64 for Secret Service travel and accommodations. The Obama trips to New York and Los Angeles were solely for fundraising events. In Chicago, the president campaigned for Rahm Emanuel. The Palm City trip was a golf outing with no official activities.
Judicial Watch has previously reported the flight expenses of the New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and Palm City trips.
The records obtained by Judicial Watch for the Obama family’s 2015 Honolulu Christmas vacation reveal the following flight expenses totaling $3,590,313.60:
Air Force One, at $180,118 per hour for 18.2 hours – totaling $3,278,147.60

The C-32A is a specially configured upscale version of the Boeing 757 used for the vice president, the first lady, members of the cabinet and Congress. According the U.S. Air Force factsheet, the C-32A features, among other luxuries, “a fully-enclosed stateroom for the use of the primary passenger. It includes a changing area, private lavatory, separate entertainment system, two first-class swivel seats and a convertible divan that seats three and folds out to a bed.”
Will she or wont she be brought up on criminal charges?
According to David Shuster of Al Jazeera America, Hillary Clinton will be interviewed by FBI Director James Comey in the coming days as investigators decide whether or not to file criminal charges over her private email server. In a clip flagged by Mediaite, Al Jazeera reported that the FBI had finished its probe of the Democratic frontrunner’s server that she used as secretary of state. Shuster, who was previously worked with both Fox News and MSNBC, said that a decision to indict Clinton will come after she’s interviewed by FBI Director James Comey in the coming days.
Clinton states she did nothing illegal and did not send any emails that were labeled classified. Of course you didn’t Hillary, only top secret. Let’s face it folks, if it were you or I that did this, we would have already been arrested, charged, indicted, prosecuted and sentenced to prison.
While Hillary Clinton fights for the Democratic presidential nomination, law enforcement officials tell Al Jazeera America the Federal Investigation into her personal email system while she was Secretary of State has reached a critical stage.
The FBI, led by Director James Comey, has now finished examining Clinton’s private emails and home server. And the sources add that Comey’s FBI team has been joined by the Justice Department prosecutors. Together, they are now examining the evidence, analyzing relevant laws, and attempting to arrange interviews with key figures in the investigation.
Those interviews, according to attorneys, will include former State Department aides Philippe Reines, Former Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Clinton herself.
Soon after those interviews — in the next few days and weeks — officials expect Director Comey to make his recommendation to Attorney General Loretta Lynch about potential criminal charges.
