Obama Prepares to Leave for $4 Million Hawaii Vacation


obama-hawaii-vacationPresident Obama is packing his bags for a 17-day, taxpayer-funded holiday vacation to Hawaii, The Washington Times reported. The vacation begins on Friday, December 20.

The first family will reportedly be staying at a palatial ocean-front home that rents for $24,500 a week. When you toss in the shaved ice, greens fees, and gas for Air Force One, the American taxpayers could be on the hook for one mighty expensive Hawaiian holiday.

The Hawaii Reporter ran the numbers on last year’s trip and found that it cost taxpayers more than $4 million. That’s some pricy poi.

And while the first family enjoys pampering in paradise, it’ll be anything but a vacation for folks who live close by, according to Hawaii News Now. Residents will be subjected to roadblocks and security checks. A popular canal will be closed and patrolled by Navy Seals and military blockades have reportedly been erected on the beach.

  1. Once a dictator, always a dictator.

    This is typical megalomaniacal living: Everything for the big fat cats while the middle class has to struggle for every little crumb.

    The Shakran-in-Chief has absolutely no shame.

  2. First Obamacare (He really doesn’t care) and now vacation. For What is he taking vacation he hasn’t done anything yet to need a vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Why can’t he go back to his own home like President George W. Bush went to his Texas Ranch? Cuz he only owns a 2 Bedroom Apartment in Downtown Chicago! That’s Fine! With some secret service securing the area will just do! Hey Prez, Ya can’t afford it, Ya do without it!

  4. I pray that you know what is going on in our world today but if not, the following message may scare you.

    For the SHOCK of your life, take 1 minute to comprehend what you read below.

    During our lifetimes, all Presidents have issued Executive Orders. For various reasons, some have issued more than others. These things will directly affect us all, in years to come.

    Question is: Do YOU care enough to send this, ‘shocking info,’ to people you love and others?

    NUMBER OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS ISSUED by U.S. Presidents in the last 100 years:
    Teddy Roosevelt – 3
    All Others until FDR – 0
    FDR – 11 in 16 years
    Truman – 5 in 7 years
    Ike – 2 in 8 years
    Kennedy – 4 in 3 years
    LBJ – 4 in 5 years
    Nixon – 1 in 6 years
    Ford – 3 in 2 years
    Carter – 3 in 4 years
    Reagan – 5 in 8 years
    Bush – 3 in 4 years
    Clinton – 15 in 8 years
    George W. Bush – 62 in 8 years

    Obama – 923 in 3 1/2 years! More than 1000+ and counting Executive Orders in 6 years…

    Read some of them below – unbelievable!
    Next step -dictatorship. (Looks like we are there already!)

    If you don’t get the implications, you’re not paying attention. How come all the other presidents in the past 100 years have not felt it necessary to INCREASE GOVERNMENT’S POWER OVER THE PEOPLE with more than 1,000 Executive Orders? This is really very scary. And most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.

    Even some Democrats in the House have turned on him, plus a very small number of Democrat Senators have questioned him. Rightfully so. –

    Remember what he told Russia’s Putin: “I’ll be more flexible after I’m re-elected”.

    Now look at these:
    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 — allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 — allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 — allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 — allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 — allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 — allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 — designates the registration of all persons. Postmaster General to operate a national registration.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 — allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 — allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 — allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 — assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 — specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 — grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 — allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. Financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.

    Feel free to verify the “executive orders” at will…..and these are just the major ones. I’m sure you’ve all heard the tale of the “Frog in the Pot”… Watch Obama’s actions, not his words! By his actions he will show you where America is headed.

    Obama has issued executive orders that seek to “harmonize” U.S. Economic regulations with the rest of the world. These executive orders are yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a North American Union and a one world economic system.

    Obama used the stage at the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s I have a dream speech to announce two new executive orders infringing on your second amendment rights.. The first bans the importation of antique military firearms for sale to sportsman and collectors.. He intentionally mislabels them military grade weapons to deceive the sheeple, but make no mistake . . . the order was written specifically to ban the importation of surplus M1 carbines, M1 Garands, 1903 Springfields and other antiques coveted by collectors and sport shooters. This order is the death knell for the civilian marksmanship program. Congress had previously passed the sportsman protection act in 1986 which among other things guaranteed that the importation of the historic relics for collectors and the CMP would not be impeded by unreasonable regulations..

    But Emperor Obama does not bend to the will of the people or the rule of law.. He will impose on his subjects what he wishes, when he wishes. Kind of like Papa Joe Stalin or the short Austrian with the funky mustache!

    Unfortunately, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.
    The American people need to understand that Barack Obama is constantly looking for ways to integrate the United States more deeply with the rest of the world.
    The globalization of the world economy has accelerated under Obama, and this latest executive order represents a fundamental change in U.S. economic policy. Now federal regulators will be required to “harmonize” their work with the international community.


  5. Number 10, I dont know where you got your info from! I’m no Obama fan, but the number of executive orders per President that you listed is totally wrong! Just Google ‘list of executive orders’ and open the Wikipedia link. Obama actually has less than many Presidents before him.

    Furthermore, not one of the executive orders that you listed were signed by President Obama.
