OBAMA BUYS $40 MILLION ESTATE IN HAWAII
Weekly World News ^ | 10/23/2012 | Frank Lake

Posted on 10/31/2012 5:57:39 AM PDT by IbJensen

President Obama and his wife just closed on a mansion in Hawaii and plan to move – in January 2013!

Barack and Michelle Obama will be moving to Hawaii in January of 2013. They have just purchase an estate in close proximity to land owned by the University of Hawaii, where the Obama presidential library and “political center” will be located. The estate is valued at $40 million.

This story was broken by Hillbuzz.org .

Reports out of Washington are that Barack and Michelle are counting on a loss in November and are anxious to return to Hawaii to start their new life. “They want the kids to attend high school in Hawaii, and they want to be as far away from Washington as possible,” said a source in the White House.

Michelle does not want to move back to Chicago and its winters and Michelle’s mother, who’s been living in the White House with her daughter and her family, is “absolutely thrilled” to be relocating to Hawaii.

In fact, Michelle Obama’s mother, Marian Robinson, has been bragging about getting to live in Hawaii next, in a $40 million beachfront mansion after leaving the White House. ”It was fun while it lasted”, Miss Marion is quoted by Chicagoans as saying, “but wait until you see the place they’re buying for Michelle and Barack!”

Here she is with a picture of their mansion in Hawaii:

For the past year, Democrats have been working on locating acceptable property in Hawaii for the Obamas to live. The land and its complex of buildings will be ready to move-into in January and has met all the requirements the Secret Service demands since the Obamas will be granted continued protection, by law, for nine years after Barack leaves office.

The Reagans, Clintons, and second Bush family all had their post-presidential homes purchased quietly on the side by friends when their times in office were coming to an end. The Obamas are doing the same thing now.

The woman who is organizing the funding of the Obama’s post-presidential estate is Penny Pritzker (pictured above with the Obamas). She is also in charge of raising the donations for Obama’s presidential library and museum. Pritzker is a billionaire who in recent years resolved a long-standing family feud over her late father’s vast business empire that includes the Hyatt Hotel chain as well as assorted manufacturing operations.

The wealthiest families in Chicago are being leaned on heavily to contribute with Penny aggressively guilting them with “appeals of you don’t want the President to be homeless in January, do you?”

There’s a movie theater in the mansion and it already is set up to play ALL of Obamas speeches over the last 20 years – in a continuous loop.

Joe Biden was also interested in buying a house in Hawaii, but the Obamas are encouraging him to find a place in Florida. “Joe will be much happier there and the Obamas… well, they’ve seen enough of Joe,” said a source in the White House.

Even though the polls in the Presidential election are close, President Obama is already making his plans for January.

SO, the Obamas will be leaving the White House soon… Hawaii, here they come!

Even as he's kicked out of OUR WH, he's going to be living off of other people's money! This entitlement-minded narcissist deserves none of this. He's where he is because of the color of his skin and his teleprompter. Having said that, I'm glad he'll be off the mainland. Moochelle said she wanted to be far away from DC; many of us want them far away from us.

You don’t buy a $40 million home if you’re going to stay around in Washington four more years.

I hope the Republicans in power investigate his Birth Certificate, then indict him for felony fraud, sue him for civil fraud, throw his a$$ in jail and relieve him and his corrupt family of that $40 million.

They can also investigate and indict Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, along with major media personnel who co-conspired in the "Great Obama Fraud (tm)."

Pretty nice digs for a traitor with American blood on his hands. I guess living with himself isn’t a problem since he obviously doesn’t have a conscience.

Not sure if there are bad enough words to describe this situation.

But Obama is poor. Mooshelle said so.

And Obama doesn’t have good retirement. He said so (it’s not as big as Romney’s).

Obama is so, so very poor.

Destroying America must pay very well. Well, it did for Jeremiah Wright.

What part of this estate will be purchased by Tony Reako’s wife like the Obama home in Chicago where she bought the lot next door so they could buy the house?

For him, the presidency was always about the bling, the perks, and of course, the power.

It was NEVER about the responsibilities involved.

IF YOU GET WEALTHY IN “PUBLIC SERVICE”, YOU ARE A CROOK.

How in God's name does a community organizer, politician, agitator get the money to buy a forty million dollar ($40,000,000) mansion? I suspect kickbacks from places like Solendra, Fisker Automotive and all the others. A million here and a million there and SHAZAM pretty soon you have a couple hundred million to retire on.

I tried to find a better source for this story, but no great luck. HillBuzz has been covering it a lot, for what it’s worth.

If the story is true—GOOD RIDDANCE!!!! I’d rather see him tried for treason, but just getting him far, far away from the rest of us would be very welcome!!!!

Makes Romney’s San Deigo home look like a damn railroad shanty. I wonder what the left has to say about Obama’s largess. Is that home LEED platinum? Ha. Ha. I assume the windmill and solar panels are hidden from photographic view because I just know this house isn’t run on dinosaur fuels.

I figured the BHO Presidential library would be located in Indonesia?

But at least Hawaii is a 12 hour plane ride from anywhere in the lower 48 - so MAYBE we won’t see as much of the ex-President Obama as we have of ex-President Clinton.

weekly world news? I’d give the Nat Enquirer more weight... if true that would be a very inconsiderate move. Obviously the first black president would have a lot of minority citizens interested in visiting his library. Hawaii is not exactly an affordable destination for most Americans.... I would have thought he would build in Chicago.

Hawaii is about 5 hours from LAX by air ... a little over 2500 miles. Sydney Australia from LAX is about 12 hours.

Since he obviously purchased it with money he stole from us taxpayers, does that mean we get to stay there any time we want? This fraud should be tried as an Enemy of the people and rot in prison instead of living in palatial luxury for the rest of his days. Will this “man” ever see justice?

Here is how it works, a leftist like Barack writes book. It actuality it sells about 50,000 copies. Then a left wing philanthropist “buys” a million more copies. But he tells the publisher not to bother printing them. The money gets funneled back to the author.

The story has been out there for several weeks. Initially, the Obamas were rumored to be looking at one 'estate' but the deal fell through when word leaked out and the owner(s) didn't want the publicity. Thus, they settled on a 2nd 'estate' until they can construct their own multi-million $ home.

Recall in 2008 how McCain was always low on campaign funds.

However, when he re-ran for his Senate seat in 2010, he 'borrowed' $20 million from his presidential campaign fund.

==

RANT: That $$$ was for his president run. Had he used it for its intended purpose, he might have one. What gives him the right to use it for a race for another position????

Too bad McCain didn't pass some type of campaign reform during his Senate career. [/sarcasm]

$40 million? The POTUS makes $400k per year. His 2 years as US Senator earned him a total of about $400k.

To quote himself, “The math doesn’t work.”

The Obamas never bought anything themselves! They will milk the system, donors, etc. and have whatever mansion gifted to them. I just hope that it is not with taxpayer dollars that they get from all the stimulus green job investments kickbacks!!!
The good news is that Hawaii is as far away as possible within the US.
I would prefer an all expense paid housing in orange jumpsuits for both our current White House inhabitants!
