How Did President Obama Earn The Money To Own These Homes?

Post by 1989TransAm » Wed Sep 05, 2018 1:48 pm

Hypocrisy at its worst
Derick Wilburn is a black, Conservative writer. He writes:

"I can't fault them for wanting to live in a beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood. It's the hypocrisy that gets me. Campaign against the top 1% and then lose and fall in line with the top 1%. Something STRANGE happens when Democrats leave the White House...

After their exodus from the White House, the Obamas joined another rarified club, that of the ruling liberal elite class owning multiple Ultra-expensive homes in highly exclusive communities that none in America can afford, save the one percenters. The very same one Percenters whom they rant and rail against as being the greedy, egocentric millionaires who simply have too much - following the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton who (despite Hillary's claim that they left The White House dead broke) somehow managed to educate their daughter at Stanford, Oxford, NYU and Columbia ($500,000?), acquire a $1.7 million estate in Chappaqua and a $2.85 million mansion in Georgetown and then Bernie Sanders who, shortly after ending his 2016 presidential bid, bought his third home, a $600,000 lakefront vacation house on Lake Champlain.

Barack and Michelle have real estate designs of their own. Earlier this year it was revealed that upon his leaving the presidency the Obamas will not be returning to Chicago. They will instead be moving into a $6 million, 8,200-square foot, 9-bedroom 12-bathroom mansion in Kalorama, one of the Washington District's most posh, desirable and exclusive neighborhoods in the heart of one of America's wealthiest zip codes. With daughter Malia off to college, that leaves just Barack, Michelle and Sasha until the younger daughter graduates high school in 2018. Nothing says they care about climate change, energy consumption and our CO2 footprint more than keeping an 8,200-square foot house heated and air conditioned year round for just three people. The hypocrisy and 'do as I say not as I do' hubris of all these wealthy climate change proponents is sickening. By the way, the Obamas' new home is just two doors down from Clinton campaign manager, John Podesta, who recently lost the most significant campaign of his life.

But that's not the new news. We have now learned Barack and Michelle are the proud owners of yet another home, this one on the Left Coast. As reported by Page Six and other sources, the Obamas have a new home in Rancho Mirage, California. Rancho Mirage is a popular golf getaway which would explain its attraction to the ex-golfer-in-chief. By some counts this makes the Obamas' fifth home.

Also from Page Six, the Obamas are also said to have bought a holiday getaway in Obama's childhood home state of Hawaii. How many American families own five of anything, let alone houses in Hawaii that they see once a year or so. Most of us are blessed if able to rent a hotel room or condo in Hawaii once a decade or a life time.

The relocation habits of Democrats leaving office is very interesting. For example, having been voted out of office in 2014, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu didn't return to Louisiana. Instead she made her 7,300-square foot $2.5 million Washington DC mansion her new home. Rather than returning to Little Rock, when Bill and Hillary left the White House, they chose the liberal, ultra-wealthy haven of Chappaqua, New York with its average household income of $285,801 and average household net worth of $1,564,366 for their new residence.

Now it's the Obamas' turn. Are they going back to Chicago to live amongst the little people and take their chances becoming yet another statistic (total number shot as of this writing this year: 3,961)? No, not so much. They, like the others, are moving into a private, secured community to live in a house big enough for five families where they will host cocktail parties for golf buddies and other millionaire and billionaire friends.

Yet like the Sanders, Landrieus
and Clintons of the world, they will accept exorbitant five-, six-, even seven-figure speaking fees to give speeches about how the rich in our country are steadily pulling away from everyone else and increasingly isolating themselves. About how the concentration of wealth at the top is allowing some Americans to own multiple houses, vacation when and as they please and live lives most of the rest of the country cannot fathom. They'll blather on and on about how the rich are a big part of the problems in our country but they gladly join them hoping no one will notice. Well, we did!”

(Harry Truman once said, "One cannot become wealthy being a president unless you are doing something crooked.")

"Do as I say, not as I do!"

So are we talking Tax returns here, I thought they were no one's business, or is that exemption just for the current "Liar in Chief"? #-o

n like Trump Obama does post his tax returns for all to see. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/16/us/p ... turns.html

I am not saying any thing good or bad about Obama's politics, I am just saying his taxes are not hidden, like Trumps. I am sure he receives large speaking fees, as do most retired presidents. And he receives a pension as well.

I would ask the same question of Trump, where did he get the CASH to buy numerous properties. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nati ... story.html
