Obama Travel Abuse UpdateAPRIL 11, 2014

Michelle Obama Riverdances through Dublin, Helps Rack Up $7,921,638.66 Vacation Tab For Taxpayers
When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. And second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn.

But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the Obamas have a disturbing lack of regard for taxpayer resources.

Most recently, when reviewing the Obama family travel log, Judicial Watch recently obtained records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealing that President Obama’s June 2013 trip to Belfast, Ireland, including a Dublin sightseeing side trip by Michelle Obama, her daughters, and her entourage, cost the taxpayers $7,921,638.66. (Per usual, and owing to the enormous public interest in Michelle Obama’s luxury travel, our discovery earned quite a bit of press coverage.)

Here’s the breakdown from the two agencies.

•According to the Department of Air Force documents, the flights to, from, and around Ireland for the June 17 – 19, 2013 trip totaled 33.6 hours at $228,288 an hour, which comes to a flight expense alone of $7,670,476.80 (These records came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)
•According to the DHS documents, the total cost for “security and/or other services” for the Dublin side-trip by Michelle Obama and her entourage was $251,161.86, including $55,004.85 at the Shelbourne Hotel and $70,855.44 at the Westbury Hotel. Vehicle rental charges were $114,721. (These records also came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)
Now I can hear the White House’s defense. This was a business trip. It’s all about diplomatic relations, etc., etc. And while this might at times be true for the president, it is certainly not true for the other members of the First Family.

For example, after accompanying the president to a meeting with Northern Ireland youth on the morning of June 17, the First Lady, her daughters, and her entourage departed on their own, apparently aboard Air Force Two, for a sightseeing side-trip to Dublin. Though the White House claimed the trip was for diplomatic purposes, WhiteHouseDossier.com reported that the itinerary showed, “She and her daughters will visit the Trinity College library to explore President Obama’s Irish family roots, attend a performance by the world-famous Riverdance troupe, and visit the Wicklow Mountains national forest.”

Yes, someday we will all hail Michelle Obama’s grand diplomatic accomplishments during her “Riverdance Summit of 2013.”

And purpose of the trip aside, is it really necessary for the First Lady to drop $3,300 per night on her hotel suite for any reason at all when taxpayers are picking up the tab?

Because that’s exactly what her Dublin suite cost per The Washington Times: “First lady Michelle Obama is sparing no expense on her trip to Ireland, staying at a $3,300-per-night hotel suite in Dublin. Irish press reports Monday said Mrs. Obama and her entourage have booked 30 rooms in the five-star Shelbourne hotel. The first lady is said to be staying in the Princess Grace Suite …. ” According to the hotel’s website, the Grace Kelly Suite features two guest bedrooms, a living room, and a dining area, and measures 1,530 square feet. More space for riverdancing, I suppose.

And the Obama entourage? Well they followed the First Lady’s lead and spared no expense either.

The Secret Service documents obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that members of the Obama entourage also rented rooms at Dublin’s Westbury Hotel. The hotel’s website describes the “glamorous, iconic 5 star” Westbury as, “a great social hub and Dublin’s ultimate city address.” The Daily Mail estimated the cost of Michelle Obama’s the two-day trip to Ireland, in addition to flight and security costs obtained by Judicial Watch, at around $5 million.

The American people can see through the “official business” lie used by the White House to justify the cost of this trp. The Obamas’ clearly abused the perk of the president’s official trip to the G-8 summit for a luxury European vacation at taxpayer expense. And this is far from the first time.

In February, Judicial Watch reported that the Obamas incurred $1,164,268.60 in flight expenses alone for the August 2013 family vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. In March, Judicial Watch released flight expense recordsfrom the U.S. Department of the Air Force revealing that the Obamas incurred $8,104,224 in flight expenses for their June to July 2013 official trip to Africa, and $7,781,361.30 for their 2013-2014 Christmas vacation to Honolulu – for a two-trip total of $15,885,585.30 in flight expenses alone. These numbers may seem astonishing, but remember they only skim the surface of the true costs of these trips.

As you know, we’ve had to scratch and claw for these records. The Obamas love to wax philosophical about the subject of transparency, but when it comes to covering up their abuse of taxpayer resources their secrecy knows no bounds.

Holder’s Meltdown Speaks Volumes

If anyone had doubts as to just how much contempt Attorney General Eric Holder has for the institution of Congress (pun intended), those doubts dissipated this week when Holder became unhinged during a heated exchange with Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) in his testimony before Congress.

Fox News described the exchange:

Attorney General Eric Holder got into a heated argument with a Republican congressman Tuesday over the still-pending contempt case against him.

Holder was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee when Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, began pressing him for documents in a separate investigation. Gohmert brought up an apparent sore spot, referencing the 2012 House vote finding Holder in contempt of Congress.

“I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said.

A visibly annoyed Holder said: “You don’t want to go there, buddy.” Leaning back in his chair, he added, “You don’t want to go there, okay?”

“I don’t want to go there?” Gohmert responded.

Holder went on to say that the congressman “should not assume that that is not a big deal to me.”

“I think that it was inappropriate and it was unjust, but never think that was not a big deal to me. Don’t ever think that,” Holder said, pointing his finger.

Two quick observations: First, there is simply no excuse for the nation’s highest law enforcement officer, even if pushed, to refer to a member of Congress as “buddy” or “pal” like a playground bully scrounging for lunch money. That may be the “Chicago Way” but it is entirely inappropriate. And second, whenever I see a politician point his finger to emphasize a point, it’s impossible not to think of Bill Clinton and his “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” moment. Or Richard Nixon’s “I am not a crook speech.” Finger pointing, as we have seen time and time again, is usually done by people who have something to hide.

And Eric Holder has much to hide.

Holder is at the center of one of the most serious scandals of the Obama administration, “Operation Fast and Furious,” where weapons were allowed to “walk” across the border by our government and into the hands of Mexican drug cartel members. One of those weapons wound up at the crime scene of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, precipitating public outrage and congressional investigations. Countless Mexican citizens, by Holder’s own admission, will also be shot and killed by weapons supplied by his Justice Department’s gun-running operation.

Holder’s attempts to obstruct justice in the investigation of Fast and Furious were the reason for the attorney general’s contempt citation and for his embarrassing exchange with Rep. Gohmert. (Holder continued his political haranguing at a conference run by the infamous race-hustler Al Sharpton the day after his testimony.)

As Rep. Gohmert pointed out, if Holder had any respect at all for the institution of Congress, or any sincere regret over the contempt citation, he would begin cooperating and release the records that will help us to unravel one of the most shameful chapters of Holder’s tenure.

But he won’t. Because he can’t. To release those records is to prove his guilt. He knows it. We know it. Congress knows it. And so does the president, who made a desperate effort to protect Holder by claiming Fast and Furious records were protected by executive privilege, which they are not.

Judicial Watch, for its part, will not be intimated. We will “go there” until justice is done. We have sued the Obama administration repeatedly for Fast and Furious records. And we continue to expose the administration’s stonewalling and lies and educate the American people. In fact, Fast and Furious was covered extensively in our hard-hitting documentary District of Corruption, in which, in a nice coincidence, Congressman Gohmert appears. (Click here to get your DVD copy for the story Holder isn’t telling.)

The American people have had enough lying. Enough excuses. Enough go-nowhere congressional investigations tainted by politics. Enough finger pointing. They want answers. And that is what we are trying to deliver.

Holder is Obama’s protector on Benghazi, the IRS scandal, and many other scandals. And he’s abused his office for the political benefit of his leftist allies. Americans concerned about honest government should support our efforts to hold Holder to account.

Judicial Watch Files Taxpayer Suit to Stop Double-Dipping Judges

Judicial Watch uses the courts to try to enforce the rule of law and battle corruption. But, as our name suggests, we also “watch” the courts. We are fearless in an area where many fear to tread – judicial corruption. This issue is front and center in a new lawsuit we filed last week in Los Angeles.

It should go without saying that judicial compensation should be paid in strict accordance with the law. This is common sense, yes? The men and women given the privilege of adjudicating the law should be subject to the law.

But that’s not what’s happening in Los Angeles County where double-dipping judges are receiving perks and benefits in violation of the law and hurting taxpayers in the process. If you’ve been reading my Update for a while, you know this is a battle we’ve been fighting since 2006. We’ve kept this on the front burner because it represents such an egregious abuse, one that must be stopped.

And this is a message we sent yet again on April 1, 2014, when we filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court for the State of California, County of Los Angeles, on behalf of Los Angeles taxpayer Harold P. Sturgeon, asking that the court declare unlawful the continued payment of “supplemental judicial benefits” to Los Angeles County superior court judges. The suit also asked that the court issue a permanent injunction prohibiting Los Angeles County from expending taxpayer funds for these “supplemental judicial benefits.”

Los Angeles County has paid “supplemental judicial benefits” and taxpayer-funded perks to judges in the county since before 1998.

Let’s pause for a moment and answer the obvious question: What exactly is a “supplemental judicial benefit”? Simply put, these benefits are compensation above and beyond the compensation provided by the California state government.

In fact, according to the California State Constitution, the state is responsible for compensating Los Angeles County judges, including both salary and benefits. But above and beyond the compensation packages provided by the state, per the state Constitution, Los Angeles County has been unlawfully providing duplicative benefits to these judges at taxpayer expense! Perks like “professional development allowances” and “cafeteria plans.”

And what is the cost of all of these perks? This will shock you. The “double-dipping” by the trial court judges cost Los Angeles County taxpayers an estimated $24.6 million per year in 2013 alone! According to the lawsuit:

In 2013, Defendants paid approximately $57,487 in “supplemental judicial benefits” to each of the approximately 429 judges of the Superior Court. This included approximately $33,970 in ‘cafeteria plan’ benefits, approximately $15,600 in retirement benefits, and a $7,917 ‘professional development allowance.’ … In 2013 alone, the cost of these benefits to County of Los Angeles taxpayers was at least approximately $24,661,923.

Let me repeat. That is, in effect, a $57,487-per-judge, taxpayer-funded bonus above what these judges are already receiving for compensation from the State of California. As you might imagine, other judges in the state who don’t receive these illicit benefits resent this abuse in Los Angeles.

Our taxpayer lawsuit asks the court to prohibit Los Angeles County “from continuing to expend taxpayer funds or taxpayer-financed resources to pay for these ‘supplemental judicial benefits.’” Specifically, the suit seeks to have the “double-dipping” declared illegal and an injunction to stop further payments.

As I say, we began the fight against “supplemental judicial benefits” and taxpayer-funded perks to trial court judges in Los Angeles County in the spring of 2006, when we filed our first “citizen-taxpayer” lawsuit on behalf of Mr. Sturgeon seeking to have the payments declared unlawful. Following a trial court ruling upholding the payments, Judicial Watch appealed.

In 2008, a California Court of Appeals reversed the ruling, declaring the benefits unconstitutional under Article VI, Section 19 of the California Constitution because they had not been “prescribed” by the Legislature.

In 2009, Los Angeles County and the judges hired lobbyists to successfully push the California Legislature to pass a bill temporarily authorizing the county payment on an interim basis until a comprehensive response to the first Sturgeon lawsuit could be enacted. To date, the Legislature has failed to establish a comprehensive response. And that is why we are in court yet again.

Here’s our bottom line: For Los Angeles County to continue to pay judges $24.6 million a year – over and above the salaries and benefits they already receive from the State of California and without proper authorization from the Legislature – violates California’s constitution and is an abuse of the taxpayers’ trust. The fact that a second lawsuit had to be filed to enforce the law against abuse by judges is a scandal.

Congress to investigate SEAL Team 6 Deaths

AUDIO….Michael Savage: Congress to investigate SEAL Team 6 Deaths

FLASHBACK >>>

Were the killings of Seal Team 6 an accident or murder?
Posted: August 7, 2011 in Uncategorized
God Bless our Troops!

Is it just me, or does it seem really odd that the same Seal Team 6 that took down Bin Laden, now happen to be killed all at once in an unrelated incident? It just goes to show I was right all along. We didn’t kill Bin Laden, he was dead already. We have no pictures, no body, and no video……NO PROOF WHATSOEVER! Obama’s puppets are shutting people up so the American People do not find out the truth! Yes I’m saying it…. Obama’s Cronies murdered Seal Team 6! It all stems back to Obamas FAKE birth certificate released in April 2011. It was so fake and questioned by so many people, that Obama needed a good wag the dog type of scemerio to get the american peoples mind off of his huge fraudulent lie! So, 4 days later the Bin Laden Raid was dreamed up, and it had most Americans beleiving the story, but not me! I didn’t buy it from the second I heard it, and I wrote a short article explaining my beliefs. http://coachsemanko.wordpress.com/bin-laden-is-dead-but-how-and-when/ Now we hear about the Seal Team that was killed, and nobody is asking questions. It blows my mind how brain dead most Americans really are! Here is the tragic story………………

Tragic Details Emerge on SEAL Team 6′s Fatal Rescue Mission

August 7th, 2011 2:42 PM ET
Yesterday’s news that 30 U.S. troops had died when the Taliban shot down a helicopter, marking the deadliest day for Americans in the war in Afghanistan, was met with mourning across the nation. Furthermore, details emerged that 22 of the troops killed were members of Navy SEAL Team 6, the elite unit that carried out the operation that killed Osama bin Laden (although none of those who died were participants in his death themselves). Considering how few members of the armed forces are Navy SEALs, the loss was called “unbearable.”

More reports are being released on the fatal operation. The U.S. Navy Seals and other troops in the helicopter were on a rescue mission, the Associated Press reports, according to two U.S. officials. They were rushed to the mountainous area in eastern Afghanistan to help a U.S. Army ranger unit that was under fire from insurgents. The rescue team had completed the mission, subdued the attackers, and were departing when their helicopter was hit.

The Telegraph reports that a spokesman for the Taliban movement said the craft had been shot down with a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) from as close as 150 yards, soon after it took off. “Ambushing” aircrafts as they take off or land is apparently a common tactic of insurgents in parts of southern and eastern Afghanistan. The Telegraph further notes that “RPGs are short-ranged, inaccurate weapons for hitting aircraft and while Taliban fighters regularly fire them at helicopters, it is rare to bring them down.” Thus, the close range and the fact the helicopter was vulnerable while taking off could have conspired to make a “lucky shot,” according to one official.

While this certainly seems heartbreaking, other have interpreted this as news that these deaths do not signify increased power or sophistication in the Taliban. “We are not seeing it as a game changer,” an official told the Telegraph. “This was not a new tactic and it wasn’t a new weapon.” Now NATO is undertaking an operation to rescue the remains of the helicopter. Shahidullah Shahid, the Wardak provincial spokesman, said there were reports of Taliban casualties overnight, according to the Associated Press. The Telegraph further reports that eight insurgents were killed in the initial raid, and a further 12 were killed in subsequent fighting, according to a spokesman for Wardak’s governor.

Bin Laden is dead, but how, and when? by Coach Semanko (5-1-2011 1142 pm)

So we hear today that Bin Laden is dead. God Bless our Troops, they are the best this world has to offer! Great news for America, the World’s Most wanted Terrorist is dead, but there are too many holes in the story to praise Obama too much yet, in my opinion. Do I celebrate the killing of this animal, and give some credit to Obama? Yes, but there are holes in the story, and I have questions. While I do give Obama some credit for the heroic operation, I still disagree with all of his policies. Funny how the left (Liberals) are against Guns, Violence, and the Military, and are now celebrating a violent killing with Guns and Military. The early reports were Bin Laden was killed 4 days to a week ago by an airstrike. Now it seems we had agents storm a compound he was in, and killed him in a hail of gunfire. I’m not buying the hail of gunfire story, and I’ll tell you why. The US has rules of engagement in Afghanistan, that forbid shooting into Pakistan. That means if the enemy crosses into Pakistan from Afghanistan and shoots at a US troop, the US is not allowed to fire back. Nice rule huh? Bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad, which is far from the border with Afghanistan, where U.S. troops are stationed, and the attack on Bin Laden’s compound would have likely needed Pakistan involvement of some kind. But the Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, denies any Pakistani involvement. Maybe they are saying that to save face, we don’t know. The original story that broke (you can’t find this story anymore) says Bin Laden was killed in an unmanned drone attack on the compound he was living in. The story also said it happened last week, and the US was waiting on DNA testing to assure it was Bin Laden. Now an airstrike from a drone makes all the sense in the world. You’d only have to have a few people on the ground, maybe even just one to direct the drone to the target once intelligence was collected. To do what Obama suggested, storming the compound and taking out Bin Laden in a hail of gunfire, sounds way too extreme, and not very possible in a country that is not friendly to Americans, and where American Soldiers are not allowed. Although we do have the very best military in the entire world, and we do have the capabilities to work under the radar, I’m putting this part of the story on the back burner for further investigation. Now we find out Bin Laden was buried at sea? How long does DNA testing take? Where did we get his DNA to begin with? Does anybody find these things a little suspicious? I sure do!

I can’t fathom how any rational thinking person can believe such a wild story made up by our government, why didn’t we cut off his head and put it at Ground Zero? He sure did nothing to deserve any special treatment like we supposedly gave him. I’m sure while we were killing Bin Laden, another team found Elvis in the compound beside Bin Ladens, but on the way back to the US, crashed into the ocean…… Elvis is gone forever! We may never know the truth about any of this, but one thing is for sure…… Our Government thinks it’s citizens are Idiots! Somebody out there is either really stupid for letting the burial at sea take place, or they are trying to make Obama look bad by giving conspiracy theorists a ton of ammunition to work with. So what is the government trying to cover up, or take our minds off of? I believe Obamas Gang is trying to take our minds off of the Libya Debacle, and the Birth Certificate Issue. Yes, he released one, but Obama is getting drilled by consipracy theorists from eveywhere, tearing apart the authenticity of this long form birth certificate, and he is crumbling at every corner. What better way to get this off of the minds of the “Sheeple”, than to catch America’s Most Wanted Terrorist! What better way to make Obama look like a great man, even to those that have loathed him in the past? Do I think Bin Laden is dead? Yes I do. Do I think he was killed in a hail of gunfire? I’m not sure about how or when he died, but does it really matter how? You can believe the entire story the government feeds you, but I’m going to be more skeptical until more details are released.

There are rumors, conspiracy theories if you will, of the USA having Bin Ladens body frozen since 2002, when it was rumored he had died from kidney failure. The story goes on to say then president Bush was going to use the Bin Laden capture if he needed a political advantage. Kind of like the political advantage Obama needs right now. Other stories have Bin Laden dying in 2007, in Pakistan, as reported by Pakistani presidental candidate Benazir Bhutto. Bhutto was assassinated 2 days later! Was somebody trying to shut somebody up? Was the US trying to coverup something by dumping Bin Laden’s body in the ocean, where it will never be found? Was it frozen? We will never know because there is now no way to ever have the body examined. This story is not going to just go away, it’s going to grow to enormous proportions with all the conspiracy theorists’ out there. This will either make, or break Obama……….. We’ll have to see how the details turn out! Bin Laden’s supposed killing, came 8 years to the day after Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech, suggesting that this time the mission is well and truly accomplished.

No, those are not Trayvon’s screams

Posted: May 15, 2013 in Uncategorized

No, those are not Trayvon’s screamsExclusive: Jack Cashill says prosecutors are denying Zimmerman a fair trial

“State audio experts ID Trayvon’s voice in screams,” reads the much too hopeful headline in a May 14 Orlando Sentinel article.

Trayvon, of course, is Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old black youth shot and killed by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Fla.

The screams in question were picked up on a 911 call from one of the neighbors. They last for 42 seconds. The person on the tape yells “help” over and over. No one can deny the fear and desperation in his voice.

Those screams are George Zimmerman’s. The Sanford Police Department knew it within hours of the shooting and, knowing this, refrained from arresting Zimmerman.

FLASHBACK: Hillary Clinton Fired From Watergate Investigation For ‘Lying, Unethical Behavior’

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.

Why?

“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Chris Matthews: Media Are ‘Pro-Obama’; If President Disagrees, He’s ‘Crazy’

Even Chris Matthews admits it. Talking to the liberal Alex Wagner on Wednesday’s Hardball about the IRS scandal, the cable host came clean on the press and their love for Barack Obama. After Wagner insisted that the President was tired of an “unfair media,” Matthews scoffed, “Let me tell you something. The press has generally been pro-Obama. That’s a fact.” If the President disagrees, “he’s crazy.” [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

The MSNBC anchor summed up the state of journalism: “I look at the major newspapers. I look at the major networks, broadcast nets. I look at us…CNN. Where’s all this antipathy towards Obama?” According to Matthews, if the staff of the White House are unhappy with how they’ve been covered, they “are very uninformed about the history of presidencies.”
