See what you bought Michelle Obama for her 50th birthday

What do you get for the first lady who has everything?

Try a few more days in sun-kissed Hawaii for Michelle Obama while her husband and two daughters return to Washington – so she and her Praetorian guard of Secret Service agents and assorted hangers-on can stay on the islands at no small expense to the taxpayers.

michelleobama0105newThe New York Times is reporting the first lady is staying put “for several days to spend time with friends in advance of her upcoming 50th birthday” – and staying away from the hustle and bustle of her onerous White House duties.

The few extra days, The Times reported, “are part of the president’s birthday gift to his wife, who turns 50 on Jan. 17.”

A couple of things worth mentioning.

First, the first lady isn’t a cheap date. The cost of the extra few days isn’t known yet, but when she traveled to the islands ahead of the president in 2011, the White House Dossier website  estimated the separate travel would cost about $100,000, including about $60,000 for a separate Air Force jet to carry her ladyship.

Assuming a separate trip back to the states cost roughly the same and we’re looking at  the equivalent of a yearly salary for, say, an elementary school principal just to get Michelle into the air and back on the ground again.

Then, throw in staffing salaries, and we’re getting into the six-figure range (to put that in terms Democrats understand, that’s about the annual salaries of two public-school teachers in Kentucky — or one no-show public-employee union job in Detroit before it went bankrupt.)

It’s the kind of perfect analogy for Democrats’ idea of government that The Obamaphile Times wouldn’t think of: Barack Obama generously “gives” Michelle the gift of a few days away from him in Hawaii, virtually all of it paid for at taxpayers’ expense – taxpayers of a country, remember, that the first lady once called “downright mean.”

So this year, a little Hawaiian R&R is what you got for a first lady who has everything – everything but class.

    @barackobama and the Mooch should each take a permanent vacation. #disgusted

    • GrimReaper

      If you read the whole story, she sent Barrack and the kids packing to go home to the Mother In Law and Valarie Jarrett.

      You know you live a life of conspicuous consumption when you can fly in all your girlfriends to have your 50th birthday party in Hawaii. (Remember the previous trip to Spain with an entourage of 40-50 “friends”)
      And even better to have the Govt pick up two sets of return flights on Air Force One.

      If you take a look at the first tax returns that the Obama’s released in 2007. What you will see is a lack of any significant savings or investment income. Which is surprising given that between Michelle’s $300,000+ a year salary as a Public Relations Dept Rep for a Chicago Hospital (a job that was so important, it remains unfilled to date) and Barrack’s $100,000+ Perks/benefits Senator gig. They had wages over $500,000 a year.

      What does that tell you? They spent it as fast as they made it. So the Hawaii trip with separate flights (thanks taxpayer!) and fabulous 50 party is just another excess.

      If you look at their current tax filings, you will see a massive increase in assets and special trust funds for the kids etc. For some reason they have become massively wealthy in the past 6 years. Surprise! or are you Surprised?

      • SandyLester

            Bet Tony Rezko gets pardoned at the end of Obama’s term.

          • ATTPIAinFL

            Rezko’s inevitable presidential pardon is a SURE thing….and there may be others who’ll settle for a pardon since they remain alive despite attempts to neutralize them.

          • jai

            Obama’s term will never end unless we give him a prison term.
            He’s ginning up a Muslim attack on our country right now to justify Marshal Law during which no elections are held and he can be dicktator/prez for life. 2016 will be too late for us.

          • SandyLester

            I can understand you feel that way, I still on the other hand wonder, especially what we know about obama and Mrs obama

          • GrimReaper

            All we can hope is the historians do their job to change history, a job the media and press has failed miserably in.

            From Columbia U to Harvard Law Review, to Ayers, to Resko, to Soros, to Valarie Jarrett, to Green Energy loans to insiders, to every scandal, to the massive growth in the Presidential net worth, to pay for play there is enough to keep a real author and or historian busy for years.

            I dare say the serious investigative writer would make his/her fortune with best selling exposes. Just look at the amount of return D’Sousa’s film on Obama made. And that just only scraped the surface and didnt really address the massive dealings with insiders for $’s for access, and massive distributions and bail outs.

            I am waiting for true exposes of the scandals that stack like cordwood in the fall, and a true follow the money to show how the taxpayer has been robbed.

          • Redbullisyummy

            D’sousa got caught with a woman that wasn’t his wife. Aren’t conservatives against that kind of stuff? Don’t they hate sex or having any kind of personality? Lol.

          • thelowdown

            Conservatives, such as myself, are simply FOR the good and betterment of the typical, average, American & his family. We are not haters or bashers of anyone who wants to ‘do their thing,’ ..they can do their thing…it just shouldn’t be THE thing that represents American people or the focus of American politics and government.

          • JHorvathJr

            Liberals can attack Romney’s grandchild with impunity but “we look bad”. Double Standard. Give as they give. They hate it.

          • frosty7530

            To JHorvath, It’s the old adage, 2 wrongs don’t make it right. Yes, hypocrisy, sadly, has always been a part of our political behavior. It makes me sad to hear people resorting to racist descriptions. Both parties indulge in this unsavory conduct.but it doesn’t help the morale of our country. I detest the way this admin uses PC, I don’t like the way O governs/or attempts to govern, It does not give me pleasure, however, to see cruel nasty remarks about the children of elected officials, or to lower myself into using racist slang to vent anger.

          • Redbullisyummy

            That’s why so few people like us conservatives anymore. They say we are simply too mean.

          • Redbullisyummy

            Jesus said to turn the other cheek. As conservatives we must set the example for others to follow and not be vengeful.

          • JHorvathJr

            I also remind you of Christian Soldiers who fought under Roman Constantine and later gainst Moslem invaders. When we ar being persecuted we should fight back. Evil succeeds when good people do nothing.

          • frosty7530

            Thank U, J HorvathJr. As a Jew, all I need do is look at basic History of WWII, and I see a great example of that lesson you used “Evil succeeds when good people do nothing”. So very perfect, but even scarier is when good people elect evil people to govt.

          • vonnise

            I agree with you.

          • Redbullisyummy

            You tossed Sandy Lester a softball opportunity to apologize for her horrible comment questioning paternity and all she can say is “I can understand you feel that way”. What a total lack of class. My heart is saddened for her children. :-(

          • thelowdown

            There are no pics of the girls as infants w/ the ‘parents’ …it is a known FACT that Obama is gay. It is a known FACT that he attended Jerimiah Wright’s church & “down low” club. It is a known FACT that J-Wright was a matchmaker for the gay black men in his church. It is a known FACT that the Obama parents do not act like normal, loving, affectionate couples. It is an obvious tip-off when Obama takes vacations & weekends away from family (on Valentines Day) etc. w/ Reggie Love, Kal Penn, etc. who are bisexual/gay and BANS the media, that these 2 girls are likely the result of artificial insemination. It’s not a horrible comment. It is an intelligent hypothesis based on fact. Wise up, Dumbo.

          • Redbullisyummy

            You speak in absolutes. As if you have no doubts in what you are saying, that kills your credibility. Intelligent hypothesis based on fact? That alone means you have no idea what a hypothesis even means. Not sure if you are intentionally trolling for a response or if you’re actually interested in truly debating. If you can’t even accept the fact that these are his children how can anyone engage you in an adult conversation. You are making it hard for conservatives like us to be taken seriously. :-/

          • JHorvathJr

            Reason is based on the accumulation of fact.
            I go outside to fetch my newspaper…
            The sidewalk is wet
            The grass is wet
            The driveway is wet
            my car is wet
            the paper is wet
            I go to the kitchen and say to the wife. “It rained last nitght.” this is valid reasoning. To invalid it, an opponent needs to state a fact that contradicts all of the above. For example:
            The wife says, “No dear, when I woke earlier, I turned off the sprinlker system you left on last night.”
            Conversations are usually based on reasoning valid conclusions are drawn from facts, a contradictory FACT may invalidate the conclusions.
            Gratis. A lesson from Reasoning 101.

          • frosty7530

            I agree GrimReaper, we have plenty to critique re Obama, we should leave those kids alone, stating that they are botched up lab experiments is very cruel and gives Conservatives a bad image. They do seem to have a strange marriage, this is not the first time those two have taken separate vacations. Their lifestyle and way of entertaining in WH appears very extravagant when compared with previous administrations.

            I also wonder what is it w/this Valerie Jarrett, she is with the 1st family 24-7! As a full time staff member of Oval Office, it seems that good mental hygiene would dictate she spend her private time with her own friends and family. There are allegations that she is a very divisive figure in Oval Office and the cause of some very good people leaving their jobs because of her. One person here noted that Obama was going back to his Mother-inLaw and Ms. Jarrett. He doesn’t have to worry about Jarrett in WH because she is staying with Michelle. Weird.

          • GrimReaper

            Really the most concerning thing about Jarrett is she filters everything that comes to the President. She attends the meetings/briefings and sends the summary and her critique to him. Rumors in the Press suggest that Jarrett limits access to the President, making her all the more important.

            Remember the national security briefings obama failed to attend but on a very low percentage. Jarrett was there as Obama’s rep. These briefings were attended only with rare exception every time by Geo W Bush.

            Remember the debt commission that was established due to the financial meltdown. Obama only attended a handful of those meetings..Jarrett was there too.

            So clearly Obama depends to an unhealthy amount on Jarrett and has been force fed her version of the content of each meeting and briefing.

            If you remember one of the biggest successes of the Obama administration was the Get Bin Laden raid. Secretary of defense Pannetta stated that two previous raids had been scrubbed. He stated that Jarrett advised the President to scrub the successful mission, but only when Pannetta threatened to quit and take the whole mess public did Obama grow a backbone and approve the mission.

            No wonder the recent week has a White House insider telling a CNN reporter that the president is more interested in campaigning than governing.

            So who is really the governing President? My guess is Valarie Jarrett. She does the work and the President is the brand.. the face and chief glad hander.

            When you look at Jarrett’s background and philosophy it becomes all the more concerning, that she is running things.

        He likes to spread YOUR wealth, not HIS, especially to his half brother who lives in a mud hut in Kenya, nor to his illegal alien aunt who lives in section eight housing in New York, nor to his alcoholic uncle who has had multiple D.U.I.’s.

        • linedancer2

          Wonder why he is not there for them? Oh well sounds like same ole, same ole disfunctional family….

        • GrimReaper

          You bring up one of the most interesting questions, the answer to which remains hidden and unanswered to date.
          Both Auntie and Uncle Obama were illegal aliens and had evaded decades long orders to deport. Uncle for his DUI family proclivity (The President’s father died in a drunken driving accident) and Auntie for her welfare cheating.
          Somehow they both were able to hide in plain sight. Uncle working in a liquor store (presumably evading taxes in a under the counter cash job-as if he got a W-2 how was it the INS could not find him for decades?) and Auntie “Hiding” in a Section 8 rental courtesy of the federal govt.
          The question is…..Who paid for all the immigration attorneys and court fees etc.. to get the orders of deportation removed? Who was doing a Quid Pro Quo (thing for a thing) for Obama. You got to know that there was some sort of a marker created or cashed in.
          Whatever happened, it smells to high heavens. And the complete ignorance and unwillingness of the media to do their job to find out the who what why of the Auntie and Uncle get a green card deal is unbelievable.

          • pineapple

            Obama must feel that since he is illegally residing in the U.S., his kin should also be allowed to reside illegally in the U.S.
            I’ll bet they also vote, probably multiple times.

          • GrimReaper

            I suggest you google
            Larry “Nativo” lopez and the La Hermicad de Mexico
            In relation to the Dornan v Sanchez house of reps election in 1996 and subsequent INS investigation of illegal aliens that voted in the election and subsequent refusal by the authorities to charge each with felony voter fraud.

            The La Hermicad de Mexico was an example of taxpayer supported non profits to achieve questionable political ends and became a model for the Acorn and other liberal non profits to generate questionable if not outright illegal voter registrations and sway elections.

            Note
            Larry Nativo Lopez was later convicted of felony voter fraud, despite attempting to plead insanity.

      • allen goldberg

        Call it for what it is…THEFT of taxpayer and private money for trading favors. Congress is not far behind. That is the primary reason why they do not call them out for these actions…they are vulnerable also!!!

        • GrimReaper

          I shudder to think what he will do when out of office.

          For all his failings and issues, you have to admire Geo W Bush for actually retiring and generally becoming non political.

          I would guess Obama will be into everything and will never go away. There are even those that must like places like the Philippines and or Chile… that would like to start up Banana Republic aristocracies .. that are pushing for Michelle Obama to run for office. Don’t be surprised if Chelsea Clinton gets a plum job when and if Hillary is elected to groom her for politics. Dynasty is not just a TV show.

          The good old reliable.. the hater reference… you need to get some new game, and that doesn’t mean the race card.

          • Darnel Cooper

            Sigh some more.
            Its either call someone “a hater” or call them stupid for all the stuff they claim is wrong that has no basis in fact.
            Calling someone on irrational hate at least gives them the benefit of doubt.
            People here complaining about money already spent in advance like if the President did none of the things he does we would save something when the money is gone every OCT 1st.
            The US Government buys in advance enough fuel to take BOTH AF1′s around the planet a few times,.. Since the fuel has a shelf life,.. not using it IS A WASTE.
            The Presidents security is ALSO paid in advance and the people doing it pull from the BUDGET laid down IN ADVANCED by Congress for everywhere the President goes.
            Everytime someone whines about the president spending taxpayers money to fly somewhere or do ANYTHING that no one whined about previous presidents,.. it comes across as stupid and irrational.

          • GrimReaper

            I suggested you get a new game.. instead you went to the oldest one in
            the book, and a sure sign of the defeated debater. The personal attack.

            Just
            a hint, as soon as one drops to the level of making it personal, one
            loses any credibility one has and will lose his/her audience.

            So
            yes, certainly I accept you admission of defeat. Have a great day! Good
            luck and good health to you, and I hope I helped you in your future
            endeavors in posting.

  • Kimber_TLE

    I hate doing this. I hate doing this Please don’t do thiiiii…

    Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Bill and Hilary Clinton. G.H. and Barbara. G.W. and Laura Bush. Barack and Me-shell Obama. All future and past presidents AND their spouses get Secret Service protection – for life.

    No matter where they travel, there go the SS. It’s the law. Obama signed it. It was called “H.R.6620 – Former Presidents Protection Act of 2012.”

    Bottom line: ya can’t include the cost of the SS because they’d have been going with Me-shell, anyway.

    • silaxo1

      Well Kimber. There is added cost when they are out of town like this. There are advance teams that take bomb sniffing dogs into the areas where the First Lady or President will be going. There is transportation of all involved, plus the added cost of SS cars to and from D.C. or……………Then there are the costs of local law enforcement much of which is paid on an overtime basis. You conveniently didn’t mention that the other President’s wives took separate planes on the trips and vacations as this Queen is doing and has done in the past. I guess you are trying to protect your favorite Marxist. There are numerous other costs I have not mentioned here and that this story doesn’t mention.

      • Kimber_TLE

        First – and foremost – I am NOT an Obama fan! Let’s make sure we’ve got that one understood! He’s the lyingest, most divisive person on the planet, today (in my humble opinion).

        There are advance teams that take bomb sniffing dogs into the areas where the First Lady or President will be going. (etc)

        Since the president was going, this would have been done, anyway.

        You conveniently didn’t mention that the other President’s wives took separate planes on the trips and vacations as this Queen is doing and has done in the past.

        All previous lists of costs I’ve seen have shown the Obama’s paid for Ms. Me-Shell to fly on da Numero Uno plane. I’m assuming (and since there’s no formal itemization for this trip, yet) they did the same thing this trip.

        I guess you are trying to protect your favorite Marxist.

        And, since you assumed I actually am a fan of this a-hole, that makes you a µ-brained idiot. And wrong.

        • tootie123

          • EliseR

            Wrong. All presidents pay airfare, lodging, and personal expenses on vacation. and all presidents pay for their own food at home and on vacation. Nancy Reagan was shocked that they had to pay for their own food.

          • Chris Horner

            not sure where you read that – but I can promise you, when they have to rent out the ENTIRE hotel for secret service, Jay-Z, and the rest of Moochie’s friends – the Oblamers ARE NOT whipping out their credit cards…

          • EliseR

            Yep. EVERY President has secret service. Presidents pay for their own lodging, food, and expenses. If friends vacation with them they pay for themselves or the President pays for them. Public law.

          • tompro97

            Totally untrue – the ONLY thing Owe-bama paid for on this trip was the cost of renting the house in which they stayed. The taxpayers paid for EVERYTHING else to the tune of $5-$10 MILLION dollars. There is no “public law” that you referred to – if so, show it to us.

          • Kibber_SF

            and when a president takes his family on vacation he has to pay for their airfare at commercial rates.

          • Marilyn Z

            So he might have chipped in $3000 for a $100,000 flight? That certainly helps. The way money is rolling into this thief’s coffers, that is mere pocket change. He cannot spend it as fast as it is piling up. No way on earth, can a president with CLEAN hands pile up the money like this thief has managed to do! Too bad we don’t have anyone who can call him on it and get some straight answers.

          • Kibber_SF

            That can be said for ALL the past 8 (if you want to include Obamy, 9)…they all ended up with much larger “fortunes”

          • Marilyn Z

            I realize that, but at this rate and this much? Where does all that money come from. I know they say from Obama’s books, but that won’t hold water. I thought there were laws that said politicians could not accept anything worth more than $200…not sure what that number is, but it is meager amount.

          • Kibber_SF

            That number is about “gifts” not self generated income. They can make all the money they want when in office from financial endeavors established prior to being elected. Most get their “big money” after office so it doesn’t have any “illegalities”…

          • muslimmustgo

          It is good to hear you say you are not an Obama fan, I guess. Let’s talk about your first attempt to defend the Queen staying over. Da Pres. is Gone. Da bomb sniffers still have to stay around and do their jobs, as do the other 60 Secret Service Agents who would otherwise be gone and off to their regular duties. In other words, if I can make it even more clear for ya; the First Lady will be going places the Pres is not.
          Are you telling me that the Obamas and previous Presidents have paid the $60,000.00, to fly her around in a 767? And, are you telling me that the families pay when they ride on Air Force I? Let me tell you, they don’t.

Advance means they go in FIRST and clear the area. After they are done they LEAVE. Security is in place with the responsibility to protect the prez and family AFTER…standard military or police procedure…ya folla…

          • silaxo1

            Let me try to spell it out for you Kibber. The First Lady is staying behind in Hawaii. I would just imagine she isn’t going to just sit around the house or hotel all day every day. Say the first lady wants to go jog at the stadium tomorrow morning. Advance teams have to get together with local police, map out the route to be taken to and from, check out the stadium in advance. Put security in place far in advance of the arrival, good chance would have to clear out parking lots around the area, keep the entire stadium clear of anybody for hours, maybe entire day before the arrival, and so on. Plans have to be made with all the various local police teams, such as K-9s, helicopters, Sniper Teams and other things you never see or realize are around. Advance preparation is made for everything these people do. I hope this isn’t to defying for you.

          • Kibber_SF

            She laid out her plans well in advance of going so they could be cleared in advance. She doesn;t get to get up and say,”I want to go here today”, doesn’t happen. Why? Because, as you say, they have to do ADVANCE clearing. Unless some terrorist was putting bombs all over or following her (of course without the knowledge of the SS) they do NOT need to clear everyplace she will be going “daily” (that’s a different word than advance, I hope I didn’t throw you) and if you think they do then they have to do this DAILY where ever she is INCLUDING when they are at the Whitehouse…and that means there is NO additional costs over what they are already paid to do their job…this has been true for ALL past presidents since the inception of the SS

        Or Hillary, Pelosi, DWS, Sheila Jackson-Lee or any of the females connected to the RAT party. I firmly believe the democRAT party was invented so the ugliest of the females of the species could find ugly men to breed with.

        Pigs are starting to be pissed about being compared to that lying, communist, Marie Antoinette wanna-be. Well, you know what happened to her! We can only start using the tools our Founding Fathers put into OUR CONSTITUTION precisely for criminals like these.

      • vonnise

        This will never happen with an egg-sucking Democratic Senate. They will never do it. Now maybe, if we can flip the Senate and hold the House in 2014, impeachment might be a real possibility.

        • Chris Horner

          the dems are actually paying off the minions to stop that already. DNC has been sending out emails, begging for money to prevent the impeachment!

          • vonnise

            Well, it is to be expected. We can’t say we don’t know what we are up against. We must really really get out the vote for our side in the next two elections. American the Beautiful us depending on us.

      Just Sharing Some Historical Facts.

      To: Obama:
      It
      was you who told an Islamic dinner – “I am one of you.”
      It
      was you who on ABC News referenced – “My Muslim faith.”
      It
      was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.

      It
      was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict -”I will stand with the Muslims.”

      It
      was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.

      It
      was you who purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

      It
      was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Quran.

      It
      was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America.

      It
      was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of
      the World Trade Center.

      It
      was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to
      host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.

      It
      was you who ordered both Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast,
      you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust their decor.

      It
      was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

      It
      was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.

      It
      was you who said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.

      It
      was you who as an Illinois Senator were the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

      It
      was you who were the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the WH, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.

      It
      was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

      It
      was you who refused to condemn the Ft.
      Hood killer as an Islamic
      terrorist.

      It
      is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.

      It
      was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that
      is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.

      It
      was you who funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

      It
      was you who ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

      It
      was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim
      community.

      It
      was you who embraced the fanatical Muslim Brotherhood in your quest to overthrow the Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak.

      It
      was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.

      It
      is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadam.

      It
      is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.

      It
      was you who was un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally
      in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

      Do we really need to go on?

      Barack,
      you may be a lot of things; but, for certainty, you are no Christian.

      Obama, who refers to himself as: “A man of Africa”,
      is precisely the type of ‘divided loyalties” individual that our Founders attempted to prohibit from ascendancy to the presidency when they constructed
      our Constitution.

      • Denise Bowen

        BRAVO!

  • KeepingMom

    I didn’t vote for them, but I did vote. If everyone here that makes such hateful comments realizes this is what we have voted in and the continued “Lords and Ladies” of both houses. Perhaps we had better look in the mirror and be honest. We were successful so we stopped doing our duty of educating our children that we must watch over our freedoms. They are supposed to be working for us, instead “Washington” is work for themselves. Vote.

    • bamashades

      people voted for candy to continue, lazy good for nothings

    • Eric

      I didnt vote them in. You might have.

    • Denise Bowen

      It’s pretty difficult to have an election, or at least an honest one, when Soros owns the company that makes the voting machines and software! What a stinking, vile mess!

      • thenational

        Does it bother you in the slightest that this is completely untrue? Unless Soros has gotten to “The Blaze” and Michelle Malkin of course.

        http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/09/13/fact-check-does-soros-own-an-overseas-company-that-will-count-u-s-votes/

        • Denise Bowen

          Nope. You believe what you want but George Soros is pure evil and is not worth defending.

          • thenational

            I’m not defending Soros. I’m pointing out that your statement is flatly false. If you had said “Soros is awful”, I would not have commented, but instead you are insinuating that he is rigging elections. He isn’t.

  • Joanne Styslinger
