    They left the Oval Office and dove head first into the private sector – and the entertainment industry. Barack and Michelle Obama, who have created their own production company and are in the midst of developing a slate of content for Netflix, were spotted vacationing on Italy's Lake Como last week. Yes, the Lake Como near where George Clooney has a home. The Obamas and the Clooneys were spotted hanging around the Northern Italian resort town on Sunday, June 23

    Hillary Clinton dropped by the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend to pick up more than $1 million in campaign contributions during an elegant party at the summer home of one of her most devoted supporters. Thirty people contributed $50,000 apiece to attend the Saturday night function at the home of Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a wealthy investment manager so committed to Clinton that she couldn’t bring herself to vote for then-Sen. Barack Obama after he defeated her candidate in 2008. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were on the island at the time of the Saturday...

Prior to taking off, as the president got out of his motorcade vehicle he was greeted with a round of cheers from a nearby crowd. Hawaii’s dignitaries were also there to bid the family farewell.

    It's no secret that former President Barack Obama and his family love Martha's Vineyard, having vacationed on the idyllic Massachusetts island seven out of the eight summers they were in the White House, as well as this August. And rumors are now flying that they're looking to purchase property in the area.

    Conservatives generally believe that the accumulation and maintenance of wealth is a good thing. We like money, we admire success, and we don’t view those who’ve achieved a significant fortune with contempt. We’re aware that well-funded bank accounts provide employment, stimulate the economy, and keep the country humming along. The left disagrees. If you’re rich, you aren’t paying your fair share. Heck, even if you’re not rich you should be taxed more. To them, the wealthy are like dragons - sleeping on a mountain of ill-gotten gold - lording over the peasants with filthy, probably-stolen, lucre that they couldn’t spend...

According to the Martha’s Vineyard Times, the former first family is returning to the island this weekend and will stay in the town of Chilmark. Ann Crook, general manager of the Martha’s Vineyard Airport, told the newspaper of the Obamas’ visit and said it will not necessitate restrictions on airspace, as was the case when the 44th president was in office.

    Former United States president Barack Obama arrived in Bali on Friday evening for a family vacation. His Gulfstream G-V N50JE aircraft landed at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali at 6.52 p.m. local time, or a bit late from its initial schedule of 5.55 p.m. Wearing a blue T-shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers, Obama was seen relaxed and smiling when he embarked from the plane, witnesses reported. Meanwhile, former First Lady Michelle Obama, who wore a white T-shirt and blue jeans walked by his side. Obama's daughters, Malia and Sasha, also joined the vacation. Journalists did not...

    The Obamas were spotted touring the city of Siena, Tuscany on Monday but it was the former first lady who grabbed everyone’s attention with her wardrobe. Michelle Obama’s off-duty look has apparently gone off the shoulder as she bared plenty of skin in a white strappy top with high-waisted pants. Her husband opted for a more polished shirt and pants as the couple stepped out of the Duomo di Siena, the Siena Cathedral, the Daily Mail reported.

    After leaving the presidency, Barack Obama has been spotted using his favorite iPad to take photos of his wife while on a David Geffen-owned megayacht in Tahiti. But this may be no ordinary iPad. A government watchdog speculates that he may have taken the Top Secret version out of the Oval Office, a big no-no.

    Veteran journalists at CBS are reportedly quite upset with network host Gayle King after she enjoyed a recent yacht vacation with Barack and Michelle Obama in Tahiti. King, co-host of "CBS This Morning," went on a star-studded vacation with the former president and first lady, Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, and her best friend Oprah Winfrey on billionaire David Geffin's 138-meter luxury yacht, called the Rising Sun. A source told Page Six on Thursday that CBS journalists are "pissed and raving mad" at King for vacationing with the Obamas while she anchors a news program that covers the White House. "The...

    WASHINGTON — The Obamas are having the time of their post-White House lives. Former President Barack Obama snapped a photo of former first lady Michelle Obama as she posed on the top deck of a yacht where the couple and celebrity friends spent Friday morning off the island of Mo’orea, in the South Pacific. The Obamas were vacationing with Bruce Springsteen, Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey and spent two hours aboard music mogul David Geffen’s luxury yacht, the Rising Sun, before leaving Tahiti. They had been staying in French Polynesia for nearly a month. So far, Obama’s post-presidency life has...

    In 1967, after shooting Mutiny on the Bounty, Marlon Brando bought the atoll of Tetiaroa in French Polynesia as his secluded getaway from the dreaded klieg lights of Hollywood. Fifty years later, after Barack Obama staged a mutiny against his party by refusing entreaties to lead the “Resistance” to Donald Trump, he flew to a luxury resort on Brando’s island to evade the partisan clashes in Washington. It seems fitting that Obama would end up at The Brando, as the resort is known, since the two men have much in common. Marlon Brando is considered to be one of the...

He plans an extended stay there to start writing his White House memoir, according to a person familiar with his plans who asked for anonymity to discuss them.

Former President in French Polynesia for Month-Long Vacation BY EMMANUELLE ESPIRITU , CHRISTIAN POST CONTRIBUTOR Mar 23, 2017 | 6:43 AM After eight years in office in one of the world's most difficult and demanding jobs, former U.S. President Barack Obama is now taking life in a more relaxed stride. As a private citizen, Obama is now able to just go out there and soak up the sun, and where can he better do that than in the celebrated French Polynesian luxury resort, The Brando.

    But there is also the issue of the Deep State, the new kind of coup for Obama's operatives who refuse to give up power. Why, indeed, did Obama want to maintain that beachhead in Washington if he didn't plan to stay there and be a father to his daughter? His traipsing around the world on pleasure trips sure as heck wasn't about Sasha or her well-being. But his operatives sure as heck have been busy. Would it be that hard for Obama to direct this Deep State activity from a chaise longue on a Tahitian island, mirrored sunglasses on, cold...

    A ruling by a federal judge in Hawaii that blocked President Donald Trump’s travel ban was announced less than 48 hours after Barack Obama made a surprise visit to Honolulu, leading some to speculate that the former president may have schemed with the judge he originally appointed. Hours before Trump’s travel ban on individuals from six Muslim countries was set to go into effect yesterday, US District Court Judge Derrick Watson, who presides in Honolulu, slapped down the policy, citing Trump’s comments on Muslims during the presidential campaign as part of his reason for blocking the ban. Watson was nominated...
