The Incredible Disappearing Vacation

Once again, the Obamas are frivolously wasting our money on their endless vacations. This time Malia has been sent to Mexico along with 25 Secret Service agents to defend her from the chaos. Meanwhile, normal Americans who can’t afford this kind of security are advised to be sensible and stay home.

On the scale of the fortunes the Obamas have flushed down their Louis XVI lifestyle, this seems insignificant — but apparently not to the Moonbat Messiah, who has a reelection campaign to worry about. Word has apparently gone out to his lackeys in the media to pull the story:

Here’s Huffington Post’s link to its story about the spring break. Click on it and see where it goes: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/19/malia-obama-mexico-spring-break_n_1364063.html

Yahoo! ran a story about it. But it has since been run off. http://news.yahoo.com/obamas-daughter-spends-springbreak-mexico-145031176.html.

That Yahoo! link is redirecting to a story about something entirely unrelated.

Essence had the story. Emphasis on the past tense. http://www.essence.com/2012/03/19/malia-obama-travels-to-mexico-for-spring-break/

Even the UK Telegraph story is now off the grid. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/9152796/Malia-Obama-guarded-by-25-Secret-Service-agents-on-spring-break-in-Mexico.html. That’s the version that Drudge was linking to.

Drudge linked to a different version, at the International Business Times, and now that story is down the 404 hole: http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/316249/20120319/malia-obama-mexico-spring-break-travel-warning.htm

If the Regime can snap its fingers and make a story disappear from the Internet, the scary times to come are already arriving.

    So the New York Times will run articles giving away our intelligence operations and putting Americans a risk, even when asked not to by the President.

    But Media outlets will remove a story that is AT MOST embarrassing to a President??????

    That sound you just heard is the dying gasp of the media’s credibility!

  2. Beef says:

    It’s nice to be able to send your 13 year old daughter off on a week’s vacation to Mexico, along with 12 of her friends from Sidwell, as long as you have 25 secret service members to provide security, and some undertermined number of staff to manage everything.

    She would have preferred Bali, but hey, times are tough and we all need to do our part for shared sacrifice.

  3. R985wasp says:

    Little MAO (Malia Ann Obama) is not the story here.

    We are AUDITING this regime for wasting (reparations) all of our money on frivilous bullshit 24/7/365!

    BTW, when did the State Dept remove the travel restriction to Mexico?

  4. AC says:

    Shared sacrifice: when we the people are forced to sacrifice and share it with the ruling class.

    Yeah, Mexico is a DANGEROUS place what with all of the guns MAO’s daddy let go there through Eric Holder and the ATF.

  12. geeknerd says:

    Every nation’s intelligence service–friend, foe, and frenemy–will have operatives in that sleepy little Mexican town, thinking about kidnapping that kid, or preventing such a kidnapping. All 25 of those Secret Service agents–and their superiors back home–will have ulcers, and the older ones will be at risk for heart attacks.

  13. Val says:

    On Monday, the AFP reported that Obama’s daughter was vacationing abroad, along with a number of friends and 25 Secret Service agents. …

    But on Monday night, the story had been removed from [news] sites. …

    Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, emails to confirm this was a White House effort:

    From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.

    @ StaninTexas, sir, a correction if you please; The media has no credibility. I assume that they are either lying directly or lying by selective editing, omitting certain details that would have the reader/viewer draw a different conclusion than from the official party line. What we have now is propaganda pretending to be news.

  15. wth says:

    The Politburo has spoken.

  16. notPropertyOfTheState says:

    Don’t much like Obama but do realise that advertising the whereabouts of a prime kidnap target in an area that could easily muster a large group of well armed and motivated individules to try and take a shot at bagging a nice target is LESS THEN STUPID.

    Even with 25 guards around you it is small comfort to know your every move is being followed by the world while you’re in a bad area with bad people that are armed.

    get real, people…….

  17. Val says:

    I guess Kristina Schake can make some exceptions:

    “Malia Obama safe after earthquake in Mexico

    (AP) – 36 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama’s oldest daughter, Malia, is safe and never was in danger during a strong earthquake Tuesday in Mexico.

    Malia, 13, is on vacation with a school group in Oaxaca in southwestern Mexico, according to reports from the region. The U.S. Geological Survey says the major earthquake was felt strongly in Oaxaca (wuh-HAH’-kah). The quake was followed by an aftershock that shook southern Mexico, swayed buildings in Mexico City and sent frightened workers and residents into the streets.

    Kristina Schake (SHAH-kee), the first lady’s communications director, says Malia Obama “is safe and was never in danger.” Typically the White House does not comment on the Obama children but made an exception because of the quake.

  18. FrankW says:

    No travel restriction needed when you have a company of Marines on site and Delta keeping the birds warm.
    I am sure the Secret Service provided close in coverage, but I doubt they were alone. My kids spent spring break helping me clean out the garage and doing other chores, bammy’s kiddo spent spring break in a resort (presumed, Sidwell Friends would never allow their students to play in a border town like TJ). And it is me that is supposed to sacrifice, keep the thermostat down, use flickery bulbs that are expensive, and pay ever increasing prices for gas. Where is the lib defense of this exercise in stupidity know as the bammy administration?

  19. Bob Roberts says:

    Probably my last visit to this thread. Two points:

    1) I can understand the Secret Service not wanting a lot of attention towards where the Obama kids are when they’re not with their parents and when they’re with a group of their peers. Therefore it makes sense that this story, or stories like it, might be kept on the QT at least while one or both of the Obama kids are out somewhere that they might present an opportunity for terrorists or criminals to put pressure on our President.

    2) The fact an Obama child is in Mexico in the first place under these conditions shows the extreme lack of good sense and judgement displayed consistently by our President and once again displays in compelling fashion how unsuited he is to have ANY power or ANY say in how our country is run.

  20. Bob Roberts says:

    Oh, and I’m glad the quake in S. Mexico did not affect her or the others there adversely. The situation is still developing, apparently.

    http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/03/20/10778334-74-magnitude-earthquake-strikes-near-acapulco-mexico?GT1=43001

  21. Removing the articles as a courtesy, a nice holdover from more press-controlled times, at best, but when a search shows hundreds of thousands of repeats of the articles and the Utah Data Center isn’t fully deployed yet, it’s rather hard to spike it.

    Press or no press: The Obamas’ parental judgment, apparently as poor as their wisdom in all other fields (save self-aggrandizement)! Their disdain for leading by example in full evidence (in thumbing their noses at the State Dept warnings)! Their disinterest in the welfare of their dutiful guardians (putting in danger the Secret Service agents, who would be taking a bullet for little MAO), much less the cost to taxpayers!

    One’s inner Alex Jones suspects MAO has been set up as a sacrifice for a number of fast and furious causes. Callous as all hell, such thinking, but the Narcissist’s ethics, morality, very humanity, have been so demonstrably, perpetually absent, one could imagine that scenario.

    About the timing of the earthquake, now, that may require one’s inner Art Bell.

  22. Bonnie H says:

    What about the drug lords who would love to try and get their hands on the President’s daughter?

  23. Lgbpop says:

    I don’t underrstand why the Obamas don’t want the fact publicized that their 13yr-old daughter is taking a trip out of the country on the public dime. I mean, after all, she’s as pretty as her father and as shapely as her mother…er, father…and she’s almost old enough for a shave too!

  24. Plug-in Lemon says:

    See when Sidwell’s Spring Break really starts…

    …this Friday (3/23).

    Like Momma, milkin’ the taxpayer for all he’s worth.

    That poor girl is going to end up looking just like her mother.

  26. […] was after news reports on the vacation kept mysteriously disappearing from the internet (hat tip Moonbattery).  From the first link: Politico confirmed this morning: Kristina Schake, Communications […]

    who’s the boy in the middle of the picture?

  28. Joek Loth says:

    Perhaps ojugg-ears is like his muslim counterparts who would strap munitions to their child and send them into an Israeli pizza shop and boom, just to make a point.
    Worst case scenario, send your(too young)oldest daughter to a KNOWN shithole, and if something bad does happen, then he would garner the nation’s sympathy which would ensure anther four years of “FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATIONs” and “RE-CON-STRUCTION” of the U.S.A., just to make a point.

  29. 1389AD says:

    I’m seriously peeved (though not surprised) that the MSM has once again toed the Obama line in going along with the garbage about “protecting the children’s privacy”. If we fail to call them out on that, then we are letting the left dictate the terms of discussion of vital national issues.

    And it truly IS a vital national issue. Fact is, this news story is NOT about the peregrinations of Obozo’s offspring.

    No. This story is entirely about US TAXPAYERS’ MONEY – in other words, OUR money – and how it is being spent on Obama’s offspring.

    Every story about taxpayers’ money – how it is being extracted from us, and where it is going – is a valid news story. Always and everywhere, WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW!

    If Hussein and Mooch truly considered their offspring’s privacy and safety to be such a priority, then they should have insisted she spend spring break with them, in the White House – not in an obviously unsafe part of the world.

    Evidently, Obama and Mooch care as little about their unfortunate offspring as they do about the US citizenry or anyone other than themselves. (Let me make this clear: I don’t mean that Hussein and Mooch care about each other, but that each cares only about himself or herself, in the narrowest possible sense.) Thus, the likeliest outcome of a kidnapping attempt on their daughter would be a “Ransom of Red Chief” scenario. That’s no reflection the kids – only on their selfish, cold-hearted, unspeakably foul, and truly subhuman parents.

  30. Questionman says:

    I sayeth your racist ass is most despicable than Rick Santorum. I guess you didn’t read the part where Salia was with 25 Secret Agents.

    Ummmmm, What the heck are you talking about? How about this; if it takes any amount of agents to keep one kid safe, the kid should be sheltered in a bomb shelter. That is ridiculous huh. She is the President of the United States of Americas daughter. She travels with that amount of protection anywhere she goes.

    I believe you are very ignorant and a racist. You are mad because a black president’s daughter went to a non white country! No one ever complained about the lavish spending of past presidents. When the Clinton’s daughter went to Europe and took more friends and more protection no one said anything.

  31. Eric says:

    I wonder why there weren’t 25 Secret Service agents around when one of the Bush twin daughters had that little mix up with, well several things, right here in America, not on the peoples’ dime. Oh wait, they weren’t black? Er, half black, er, quarter black, oh wait, one third? But it’s racist to point out the actions of the current mulatto who lives in the White House.

  32. Joek Loth says:

    FUCK YOU ?man and F*CK THAT DUMBASS obammy o-jugg-ears!!
