Biden Vacations in Virgin Islands for Second Time in Three Months Daniel Halper March 7, 2014 7:01 AM
The White House announced that Vice President Joe Biden would spend the weekend vacationing in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It's his second vacation there in three months.
His White House schedule reads:
DAILY GUIDANCE FOR THE VICE PRESIDENT
Friday, March 7 Sunday, March 9
The Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will visit the U.S. Virgin Islands. There are no public events scheduled.
And as Geoff Earle of the New York Post reported on December 27, the vice president spent New Year's on the U.S. Virgin Islands.
"Vice President Biden doesnt have to worry about playing second fiddle to his boss when it comes to tropical vacations," Earle reported.
"President Obamas No. 2, and 2016 presidential prospect, jets Friday to the U.S. Virgin Islands aboard Air Force Two, the White House announced Thursday night. Hell be there through New Years.
"That puts Biden just steps away from some of the Caribbeans best snorkeling at the same time Obama is strolling Hawaiis spectacular golf courses and hiking trails."
They have see to the offshore accounts
Vice President Joe Biden would spend the weekend vacationing in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Leaving Friday coming back Sunday? Not much of a vacation. I have done these types of trips and by the time you return you are ready for a vacation. It is exhausting especially if he goes back to work on Monday.
Which harlot is he hooking up with down there?
This administration fancies itself to be royalty.
Belay that. I see Jill’s coming too. Perhaps they are trying to figure a way of of the mess they know they’re in.
” Dr. Jill Biden “
Her degree is in English!
Did he take Amtrak?
FREEPER POST Biden's son was once a lobbyist who made $1.8 million. He said it was legal because, when he had to lobby his dad, he sent someone else from the office. When Biden ran for VP, they had him quit the lobby gig and he went to work as a rookie broker at a hedge fund for $1.2 million.
Then Biden's son and brother launched a take-over of the hedge fund and it all gets murky after that. We always hear that Biden is broke but there is apparently more to it than that. Harry Reid has the same deal; his sons are lobbyists. You hire them if you want to talk to their dad.
REFERENCE Biden's son Hunter Biden was previously a top official at PARADIGM Global Advisors, a hedge-fund holding company founded with Vice President Bidens brother, James, and marketed by convicted finance fraudster Allen Stanford. As Paradigm chairman, Hunter Biden oversaw half a billion dollars of client money invested in hedge funds while remaining a lobbyist. Cooper chipped in $2 million for the ill-fated venture, which went down in flames amid nasty fraud lawsuits." (NOTE Stanford is now in jail but the Biden's got off scot-free.)
"Hi there, Americans. Obama put me in charge of the trillion dollar stimulus.
My son and brother are gonna help me disperse the money. "
Offshore Fraudster had links to offshore fund run by VP Biden's relatives
Reuters on Yahoo | 2/23/09 | BY Ajay Kamalakaran
(Reuters) A fund of offshore hedge funds run by two members of VP Joe Biden's family was marketed exclusively by offshore firms controlled by Texas financier Allen Stanford, charged by regulators with an $8 billion fraud, the Wall Street Journal said.
The Bidens $50 million fund was jointly branded between the Bidens' Paradigm Global Advisors LLC and the offshore Stanford Financial Group entity headquartered in Antigua, and was known as the Paradigm Stanford Capital Management Core Alternative Fund, the paper said. Stanford-related offshore companies marketed the Biden fund to investors and also invested about $2.7 million of their own money in the fund, the paper said, citing a lawyer for Paradigm.
Paradigm Global Advisors is owned through a holding company by the vice president Biden's son, Hunter, and Joe Biden's brother, James, according to the WSJ. Paradigm's attorney, Marc LoPresti, who represents Hunter Biden and James Biden, as well as Paradigm, told the paper he did not know which Stanford entity invested the roughly $2.7 million.

NOTE A lawyer for Hunter Biden and James Biden told reporters the Bidens NEVER met or communicated with Stanford. (/snicker)
Biden snicks and snarks about the "one percenters"---but he doesn't refuse their money. Read on.
NY POST PAGE SIX---Obama still has some friends in investment banking. Chad Leat, managing director and chairman of Alternative Asset Group Investment Banking at Citigroup Inc, is hosting a $10,000-a-plate dinner for Vice President Joe Biden on Aug. 24 at his home, The Barnyard in Bridgehampton. Leat is described in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens as a banker, dedicated equestrian and imaginative host, with an elegant, but hip home. On the table for discussion will undoubtedly be the economy and jobs. Probably not up for discussion will be that in 2008 Citigroup got a $45 billion government bailout in two installments .
NY POST PAGE SIX--- Nathan Lane will host an Obama fund-raiser attendedby Joe Joe Biden at the Bridgehampton home of Ellen Chesler and Matthew Mallow. The Aug. 24 event, called "East End for Obama," will feature a performance by singer James Taylor. Hosts include actress Julianne Moore, Sopranos star Edie Falco and Jane Holzer. This is one of the few Obama fund-raisers in the Hamptons, Chesler bragged and e-mailed media that the event began in the arts community out East but has morphed into what we understand will be the major Obama campaign event this summer in the Hamptons. Tickets range from $500 to $10,000 to join the host committee and get a photo with Biden
Off shore banking accounts are my bet
hard copy signatures needed.
Give him credit, he tried to take Amtrak to keep the cost down.
LOL! What "work" would that be... other than making his daily scheduled stupid statements?
This is big F...... News!
Prez goes to FL.
VP goes to Virgin Islands.
Good thing there aren’t any international crises going on in the world right now.
Nice thought, but not offshore enough. These islands are U.S. Territory.
21st century version of Carter’s ‘hiding in the Rose Garden’.
“Dr Jill” ...
oh, shows you what I know
Everybody had the same chance as Joe Biden to become Vice President but chose a different route. This is how it is. I don’t remember the bitching with Cheney. I think a weekend vacation is not a big deal. If you have issues, then run for President or at least get on the ticket as VP.
get over yourself
I was simply descibing why a weekend to the Virgin Islands is a lot more “vacation time” than a typical American would get. Show me factually where that was “bitching” or where the VP does not get the VIP treatment I descibed
As for Cheney getting a pass from public criticism....
LOL. Just LOL.
Bad joke, yeah. But the joke is on us..
Not so much - his brother (BIL?) has a house there. Biden is a joke, but this is no big deal.
