Group sues for Michelle Obama vacation records
politico ^ | 3/6/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 03/06/2012 10:09:45 AM PST by Nachum

A conservative legal group is suing the U.S. Air Force for access to first lady Michelle Obama's travel records from a 2010 vacation to Spain.

Judicial Watch filed suit Tuesday in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia for access to all records pertaining to an August 2010 vacation taken by the first lady and her daughters — including cost estimates and passenger manifests.

"Evidently, American taxpayers were stuck with a sizable bill so Mrs. Obama could tour around Spain with her family and friends, This administration, as a supposed steward of taxpayer dollars, has an obligation to disclose the full costs of the Obama family’s luxury trip," said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton in a statement.

King Obama and his herd won the lottery. That all it is and we will never recover or find out the billions that these criminals will have spent for the rest of this year. And if King Obama gets another 4 years he will have stolen over a trillion.

IIRC we did quite a bit of research on a few people who just happened to be near her on that trip....a gun dealer/money launderer maybe???
Also questioned who she took with her and that JJJ just happened to be in the neighborhood.

SO glad to hear this is finally happening. That greedy woman needs to be investigated and taught a lesson. Being First Lady does not mean unending access to taxpayer dollars so you can live large, travel the globe and flaunt yourself in front of the entire world.

What this woman has done to the grace and dignity of the office is absurd. Not to mention what she has stolen from taxpayers.

With thanks and credit to Brugmansian, it’s looking like all the LSM fuss about Michelle’s extravagant vacation in Spain, just might be a distraction to cover up a much more sinister reason for her trip.

Brugmansian uncovered the following article in EL MUNDO and the last paragraph is of specific importance.

Varias casas reales árabes también pasan sus veranos en Marbella desde hace años. Así, habrá un encuentro entre Michelle Obama y el príncipe Salman bin Abdelaziz, gobernador de Riad y hermano del fallecido Rey Fahd de Arabia Saudí; mientras que se baraja otra reunión de la primera dama con el propietario del Málaga CF, empresario multimillonario, hijo del ministro del Interior de Qatar y miembro de la familia real qatarí, Abdullah Al Thani.

It is important to point out, that nothing about her meeting with the above named has been mentioned in the Lame Stream Media, just out of character sclding and gripes about the expense of her trip!

Another fascinating fact: Jesse Jackson Jr, is also along on the trip. Yes, son of shakedown artist himself.

Michelle Obama visits Ronda
Telegraph (UK) ^ | August 7, 2010 | Fiona Govan

Posted on Saturday, August 07, 2010 11:32:31 AM by IbJensen

Michelle Obama followed in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles when she paid a visit to Spain’s oldest bullring, the Plaza de Toros in Ronda, a picturesque town in the hills above the Costa del Sol.

The First Lady, her youngest daughter Sasha, and their group of friends left the Spanish coast and travelled to Ronda for a day of sightseeing accompanied by their vast security escort in a 13 car motorcade.

-snip-

Meanwhile at the five-star luxury Villa Padierna, where the group have chosen to spend their mini-break, preparations were under way for Marbella’s event of the year – a star-studded charity gala hosted by Hollywood A-listers Antonio Banderas and Eva Longoria.

-snip-

One name on the guest list that could raise a few eyebrows among US diplomatic circles is Adnan Khashoggi.

(snip)

//

Until March, 2010, it had been 17 years since Khashoggi had been back to Marbella.

Adnan Khashoggi once owned Spain’s most expensive real estate is set to return for a charity dinner in Marbella.

Adnan Khashoggi once owned Spain’s most expensive real estate is set to return for a charity dinner in Marbella. Adnan Khashoggi – former owner of La Zagaleta development in Benahavis – will attend the Children for Peace event at Hotel Incosol.
After a 17-year absence from Spain the business tycoon will attend the dinner scheduled for March 27 with second wife Lamia – the charity’s vice president.
In 1988 Khashoggi was jailed in Switzerland for concealing funds but was acquitted two years later.Born in Mecca, Khashoggi was regarded as the world’s richest man in the 1980s and his yacht, the Nabila, was used in James Bond film Never Say Never Again.

Khashoggi was accompanied by his wife Lamia, the couple were also attending
the Children in Peace Charity Gala at the Incosol Hotel Marbella during their
visit to the area.

Michelle avoids Khashoggi and Thatcher in Marbella

EXCERPT

Smart move - the Starlite Gala at the Villa Padierna hotel was a good one to miss. Not only was it swarming with iffy Euro aristrocrats - Gunilla Gräfin von Bismarck and Alfonso de Borbon, the Duke of Anjou - but among those on the guest list was Adnan Khashoggi.

Khashoggi was the notorious Turkish-Saudi Arabian arms dealer implicated as a middleman in the Iran-Contra scandal of the 1980s, when Ronald Reagan was in the White House.

Reagan’s Republican administration allegedly sanctioned the sale of weapons to Iran in breach of an arms embargo, in return for help in releasing US hostages held by Hezbollah. Money from the sale of weapons was then diverted to fund the anti-communist Contra rebels in Nicaragua, who were supported by the CIA.

In short, it was one of the messiest affairs of the era and dogged the Republicans for years.

Another guest mooted to be attending the Starlite Gala was Sir Mark Thatcher, son of Reagan’s bosom buddy Margaret Thatcher.

The Iron Lady’s son has a home in San Pedro de Alcantara, just down the road from Marbella, where he tries to keep his enemies at bay. Among these is President Teodoro Obiang of Equatorial Guinea who, legend has it, likes to eat the testicles of those who cross him. Thatcher is on Obiang’s most wanted list after he allegedly helped fund the failed “wonga coup” of 2004 to overthrow him.

At this point, I don't think there's much "if" left. After the msm finishes off slamming the GOP, his thugs camp out at the polls, ACORN buys the vote and certain people get the Soros phone call, then it's a done deal.

Equatorial Guinea? That reminds me, isn’t that the country that Roman Obama is a consular administration official for, in Accra Ghana?

Looks like another wealthy African nation being ruled by a despotic greedy dictator.

http://africangreed.blogspot.com.au/2010/12/equatorial-guineas-sons-35m-malibu.html

Backstory

The tiny state of Equatorial Guinea, five inhabited islands and a mainland portion of jungle, is one of the smallest in Africa, with 520,000 citizens. In 1979, nine years after independence from Spain, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema seized power, and has been absolute ruler ever since. In the past decade, Equatorial Guinea has become Africa’s third largest oil producer. On paper, oil has made its citizens the second wealthiest on the planet. In practice, much of the £370m revenue is grabbed by the president, while most people live on less than a dollar a day...

Don’t forget that JJ Sr biological father was a Robinson and came from the same Plantation area that Michelle’s family came from. A freeper from Chicago told me confidentially that Michelle spent a great deal of time in the JJ home as a child. She also baby sat the JJ children often enough that they still refer to her as “Sis”.

So having JJJ involved in something sinister is just keeping it in the family.

You may be right.
But is there a dumber thing than a non-starter issue of chasing the FLOTUS over spending binges, when the POTUS is an illegal alien poser with a counterfeit LFBC and Draft Card, and a stolen SS Number?

IMHO, that sounds like PURE Larry Klayman; Chase some minor (in comparison) issue that will wind up going nowhere, while avoiding ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING about the REAL crimes against our Constitution!

Taking two AF presidential jets to Hawaii - who was on the trip with Michelle, is she allowed to bring her make up person along, hair dresser?....she should have waited for her husband...did BO go along? Maybe it was a security thing...but what is that costing the USA to protect them? I bet it is far and above the norm.
