China bans lavish perks at People’s Conference.

U.S. Federal agency bureaucrats spend millions on first class flights.

Obama Air costs $237,000 per hour.

The president spent over $7.3 million on just three trips in 2013, including $2.1 million to appear on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in August, according to new flight documents provided by the Air Force to a public watchdog group.

Judicial Watch told Secrets that the sky-high jet travel costs for the first family’s 2012-2013 Christmas vacation in Hawaii, their beach vacation on Martha’s Vineyard last summer and President Obama’s brief trip to California in August totalled $7,396,531.20.

The Air Force said it costs $228,288 an hour to fly Air Force One, a massive $48,535 jump from the last estimate of $179,750, or 27 percent.

No mention of what it costs to jet Michelle and the girls aboard Air Force II (and a second cargo plane) for a three-day ski vacation in Vail.

    My kid was on the dock last summer watching the two Ospreys that were flying in the First Dog, BO not Michelle, to the Vineyard. Two Ospreys for the Presidential mutt? Seriously, BO couldn’t fly on Air Force One?

    BO didn’t make Air Force one, because Muslims don’t like flying with dogs.

    According to the Islamic tradition, dogs are unclean and Islam has developed several commands that warn Muslims against keeping them as pets.

    The deputy director of sharia at the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC), Sheikh Yahaya Ibrahim Kakungulu, said Allah (God) prohibits Muslims from keeping dogs as pets in their homes because of their ‘impurity’.

    This from people who wipe their butts with their hands.

      “There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone. ”

      I hope you can get out of there. For the property prices of this town I certainly hope you don’t live in Greenwich.

    According to today’s New York Post, (page 10):
    “Michelle Obama is heading to China for a weeklong visit that includes meetings with China’s first lady and high-school and university students.
    Mrs. Obama will make the trip, her first to China, from March 19-26. She’ll go with daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, and her mother, Marian Robinson, who lives at the White House.
    President Obama won’t be going; he leaves that week for Europe and Saudi Arabia.”

    No word on BO’s plans.

    BO’s plans will include several rounds of golf and evenings spent in front of a cozy fire with Valerie Jarrett.
