Joe Biden to “We the People” … Sequester fir thee, not for me … OUI, OUI!!!
More government waste … Not only dis Obama Vice President Joe Biden cost American tax payers a whopping $459,388 on a one night stay at a Paris five star hotel last week, as reported as The Weekly Standard, he also cost “We the People” another $321,665 for limo fees. Interestingly enough, the VP has a limo that is usually brought in tow when he travels abroad, so these charges must have been for staff. Unbelievable. The Obama administration is crying poor due to sequestration cuts, yet some how they manage to waste nearly $1 million to send this useless VP to Paris.
Ha, ha, ha … They bought it boss that we were for the people, what a bunch of saps
After two items last week on the cost of lodging for Vice President Joe Biden’s early February trip to Europe, other news organizations began to investigate further. Wolf Blitzer’s show The Situation Room on CNN uncovered a contract apparently also related to the same visit to Paris:
Also on the receipt was $321,665 for a limousine company.
Remember America, this is the 1% Presidency and you voted them back in office. Children are not allowed to take White House tours because that cost too much; however, Barack Obama is allowed to party it up on St. Patty’s Day, Sasha and Malia can go to the Bahamas for Spring Break and Biden can jet off to Paris. Anyone feeling buyer’s remorse and is it any wonder why Obama’s job approval ratings are starting to crater.
Mother of 3 Year Old Boy Named “Jihad” Sent Son to Nursery School Wearing Shirt with Words “I am a bomb” Faces Trial in France
I guess this is the reason why many schools have uniforms …
READING, WRINGING and TERRORISM … A mother faces trial in France after she sent her three year old son to nursery school wearing a shirt with the words in the front, “I am a bomb” and in the back “Jihad” & “Born on September 11″. What kind of hateful individual used their child as a political/terrorist propaganda tool? One who supports terrorism I guess. believe it or not the son’s name is “Jihad” and she claims he was born on September 11. However, the “I am a bomb” is not quite passing muster. According to reports the mother “was very surprised by the reaction” to the incident, which she called a “provocation,” and said she did not expect the case would “assume such proportions.” Hmm, I wonder whether she was surprised by the reaction of Americans to September 11, 2001?
A MUM who sent her three-year-old son named “Jihad” to nursery school wearing a top bearing the words “I am a bomb” is to go on trial in France.
Beneath the boy’s name on the back of the jumper were the words “Born on the 11 September” – the date of the 9/11 terror attacks on New York’s twin towers.
The muslim mum was reported to police by the boy’s outraged teacher and has now been charged with supporting a terrorist act.
More from the Times of Israel:
The incident took place on September 25 in the town of Sorgues, in the district of Avignon, southern France, but has only been reported now. The divorced woman’s brother, who allegedly supplied the offensive shirt, is set to face charges together with his sister. According to the French daily Le Figaro, the two were remanded in custody awaiting their trial, which was set for December 19.
According to reports, when the kindergarten teacher noticed the message on the clothing, she gave the child another shirt to put atop the offensive garment, and notified the authorities.
Barack Obama Slams Romney about Bain Capital and Outsourcing, Then Outsources his Campaign with Fundraisers in Switzerland, Sweden, Paris and Communist China
Barack Obama, the Outsourcer in Chief is at it again.
So what does an incumbent, hypocrite President do who is in trouble on the domestic front with the economy, jobs and debt, and who continuously ans falsely attacks his opponent Mitt Romney on outsourcing do … why Obama outsources his campaign with fundraisers in Switzerland, Sweden, Paris and Communist China of course.
Check out the Gateway Pundit for all the specifics and details for Obama’s fund raising in Switzerland, Sweden, Paris and Communist China. Who finsd it just a wee-bit ironic and laughable that Obama, whose campaign has attacked Romney for Swiss bank accounts, is having a fund raiser in Switzerland? I wonder how many of those Obama donors have Swiss bank accounts themselves?
Just curious, with the advent of the Internet, Paypal, and on-line donations, why would a campaign really have to go to foreign countries to to get campaign funds from Americans living abroad? There still is International mail with those “par avion” letters that individuals can send a check, right? Better yet, as stated at I’m 41, begging for donations in Red China, really? Check out the link to the Shanghai beg from the official Elect Barack Obama/Biden web page. Of course all of the donations funds come from Americans living abroad, wink, wink, nod, nod.
If both candidates hold fundraisers overseas as we are told, one has to answer two following questions, one, why is there a huge difference in donations and two, if outsourcing is so bad, why is Obama going after monies from Americans living and working abroad?
Does there seem something just unseemly about this?
VIVE LA FRANCE … Nothing says July 4th, American Independence Day like a fundraiser in Paris. Then again, you are not Barack Obama. For the Obama campaign that has had more fundraisers than any President ever, whats a trip to “Gai Paree”. Although Obama will be in the USA during this fundraiser, he is not that ignorant to attend such an event on the 4ht, it just does not smell right. However, I guess it beats Obama charging you $1000 a plate for a hot dog, hamburg and potato salad at a 4th of July picnic. Or Obama begging for cash saying that he will cook burgers for cash.
Will grill steaks for donations …
Apparently tiring of US soil as a source of campaign dollars, the Obama campaign is headed overseas — with its celebrity friends in tow. The European Obama campaign starts next week in Paris on July 4 with a reception organized by various fundraising heavy-hitters. Independence Day fundraisers in Paris – now that’s a flag-waving campaign.
Sarkozy Out in France … Loses to Socialist Francois Hollande … Obama Quick to Invite Socialist to White House
Nicolas Sarkozy is out as French President. Over the weekend he lost to the socialist candidate Francois Hollande. France thought they were in a predicament now? France will learn just like everyone else has who embrace socialism, eventually you run out of other people’s money.
Socialist Francois Hollande swept to victory in France’s presidential election on Sunday in a swing to the left at the heart of Europe and promised to start a pushback against German-led austerity policies.
Hollande led conservative incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy by 51.3 percent to 48.7 percent with 83 percent of votes counted, the Interior Ministry said, bringing the centre-left back to government in Paris after a decade in opposition.
It took less that 24 hours for Barack Obama to invite socialist French president-elect Francois Hollande to the White House. That was quick. What are the two going to do, compare notes? You know what they say … water seeks it’s own level.
President Barack Obama congratulated French president-elect Francois Hollande for his victory Sunday, but warned of “challenges” ahead, a clear reference to Afghanistan and eurozone debt crisis.
The US president was among the first world leaders to welcome Hollande’s election as France’s first Socialist president in nearly two decades, a result sure to have major implications for Europe as it struggles to emerge from a financial crisis.
Obama invited Hollande for bilateral talks at the White House later this month ahead of a G8 leaders meeting he will host at his Camp David retreat in Maryland between May 18-19, and a NATO transatlantic alliance summit in Chicago on May 20-21.
The “soak the rich” rhetoric that has punctuated the presidential campaign has prompted a sharp rise in the numbers weighing a move across the Channel, according to London-based wealth managers, lawyers and property agents specializing in French clients.
François Hollande, the Socialist candidate who leads the presidential race after the first round of voting last week, wants to impose a tax rate of 75 per cent on income above €1m and at the launch of his bid in January said: “My true adversary in this battle has no name, no face, no party … It is the world of finance.”
Sound familiar? No wonder Obama invited him to the White House in record speed.
UNREAL … School teacher in France calls for a moment of silence for serial killer and possible terrorist Mohamed Merah. According to reports, the students told their principal that their French English teacher called the serial killer a “victim,” and that she said his links to al-Qaida were fabricated by the media and French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Mohamed Merah murdered three children and a rabbi at a Jewish school and killed three soldiers … but this fool thinks he was a victim.
France’s education minister called for disciplinary proceedings against a teacher in the north of France on Friday, after she allegedly asked her students to observe a moment’s silence for serial killer Mohamed Merah, the man who gunned down three children and a rabbi in front of Jewish school in Toulouse earlier this week.
Students in the the French English teacher’s class in Rouen wrote to their principal that she had called the serial killer a “victim,” and said his links to al-Qaida were fabricated by the media and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, according to AFP.
Even Israel PM Netanyahu would beat Obama in 2012 …
Americans polled prefer Israel Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over President Barack Obama. I think the real news here is that 51.5% actually rated Obama positively. That is a far cry from his present job approval numbers.
“A poll conducted by the group Greenberg Quinlan Rosner found that 52.3 percent of Americans rate Netanyahu positively, compared to 51.5 percent for Obama,” reports Israel Today Magazine. “The results of the poll were enthusiastically discussed on Israel’s Channel 10 News on Thursday.”
The Washington Examiner called the polling firm to confirm and request the full data, including margin of error, but hasn’t heard back yet. The poll reportedly asked questions of 800 U.S. citizens.
Of course Barack Obama showed his true feelings of Israel when he was overheard on a hot mike at the G-20 meetings with French President Nicolas Sarkozy complaining about Israeli Prime Minister Banjamin Netanyahu.
“Obama began by reproaching Sarkozy for not warning him in advance that France would vote in favour of Palestinian membership of UNESCO,” the website reported. “The conversation turned to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, with Sarkozy saying ,’I don’t want to see him anymore, he’s a liar.’
“To which President Obama replied: ‘You’ve had enough of him, but I have to deal with him every day!’ Obama then asked Sarkozy to try to convince the Palestinians to slow down with their UN membership drive.”
Real classy Barack, putting the “Hussein” in Barack Hussein Obama.
Former IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn Said to Maid While Assaulting her … “Don’t You Know Who I Am?”
It would appear that former IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn while assaulting a NYC hotel maid was trying to do his best Senator John Kerry imitation by saying the following. According to Fox News.com, reported, Strauss-Kahn reportedly said to the NYC hotel made while pinning her down an allegedly assaulting her … “Don’t you know who I am! Don’t you know who I am?”
That and other details of the maid’s complaint to police emerged Monday as police reportedly confirmed that disgraced ex-International Monetary Fund boss Strauss-Kahn’s DNA was found on the maid’s shirt.
It sounds like de javu, all over again …
62 year old IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested over the weekend and removed from an Air France plane at JFK International Airport on the charges of sexual assault of a NYC hotel maid. However, this is not the first time such accusations have been made of Dominique Strauss-Kahn as reported at the Guardian.
A local official of the Socialist party claimed that Strauss-Kahn had attacked her daughter, who is goddaughter to Strauss-Kahn’s second wife, in 2002.
Tristane Banon was in her 20s and writing a book when she approached Strauss-Kahn for an interview in 2002. In a TV programme in 2007, in which Strauss-Kahn’s name had been bleeped out, Banon allegedly described him as a “rutting chimpanzee” and described how she was forced to fight him off. “It finished badly … very violently … I kicked him,” Banon said. “When we were fighting, I mentioned the word ‘rape’ to make him afraid, but it didn’t have any effect. I managed to get out.”
Once is an occurrence, twice is a trend. What are the odds that this latest sexual assault accusation will sink Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s run for French President?
UPDATE I: Dominique Strauss-Kahn denied bail in sexual assault case, farewell Cayman Islands, say hello to Rikers Island. The judge obviously felt that Kahn was a flight risk and denied the $1 million bail.
The decision to deny bail was a surprising and striking defeat for Mr. Strauss-Kahn, whom many saw as a leading contender to become France’s next president. He was taken to Rikers Island, where he will be held in protective custody in a single-person cell instead.
