People In This Airport Are FURIOUS Over What Michelle Obama Just Did – ‘Let Them Eat Cake’

In a nation where power, in theory, belongs to the people, travelers wanting to fly in and out of Aspen, Colorado Friday learned where the real power lies.

Travelers had to wait, regardless of schedules, so that the airport could be taken over by first lady Michelle Obama and her children.

The news emerged when it was tweeted out by political analyst and Georgetown University professor Ron Christie.

“Let them eat cake: ‪#Aspen flight delayed due to “security bubble” so @FLOTUS/kids can have airport for themselves,” he tweeted.

He followed that up moments later.

“The ‘1%’ ‪@POTUS rails against while taking their $ are furious. Wow, you should hear what they saying about ‪@FLOTUS entitlement,” he tweeted.

There was one more comment.

“Worst part is we were originally told plane had a mechanical issue before they fessed up ‪@FLOTUS needed to fly there 1st,” he tweeted.

“Her Royal Highness Michelle Obama is head and shoulders above the rest of us Americans. When she flies into an airport, it’s as if no one else matters,” wrote John S. Roberts on Young Conservatives.

“The Obama’s don’t act like the First Family as much as they do celebrities, and that is highly unbecoming,” he wrote. “Just another day in Obama’s America.”

The cost of this year’s trip has not been revealed, but last year, the watchdog group Judicial watch reported the cost of Michelle Obama’s 2015 Aspen ski getaway was 14 times higher than what it would cost a normal family, even in pricey Aspen. Air travel costs alone totaled $57,068.80, Judicial Watch reported. On top of that were costs for security, accommodations, rental cars and entertainment.

“The Obamas abuse taxpayers with unnecessarily luxury vacations and travel,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “How many times did the Obama family travel to Aspen prior to the presidency? Misusing the perks of presidency to travel to luxury hot spots is an abuse that must end. If Congress is looking to save tax dollars, they might consider trimming the platinum travel budgets of this and future presidents.”

Watch: What Michelle Obama Said About Halftime Show Before It Happened Is Raising Eyebrows

First Lady Michelle Obama revealed in a pre-game Super Bowl interview that she “cared deeply” about what turned out to be the controversial, anti-police half-time show featuring Beyonce among other performers.

Media outlets noted before the game that Beyonce was expected to perform her new single Formation, which the singer released on Saturday night before the Super Bowl.

As reported by Western Journalism, the song and the music video have a strong anti-police, pro-Black Lives Matter message in them.

The video opens with her on top of a flooded New Orleans police car, and later includes police officers in a riot line holding their hands up as a young, hooded African American boy does the same.

The latter is a clear reference to the Ferguson protesters’ cry of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” which federal and state investigators determined to be a false narrative about the Michael Brown shooting.

The words “Stop shooting us” spray-painted on a wall next appears. The video ends with Beyonce being completely submerged along with the New Orleans police car.

Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance featured her in an outfit with an “X” on it. The singer and her backup dancers also formed an “X” during their performance as a tribute to Malcolm X, the 1960s Muslim black rights leader.

Additionally, the backup dancers wore berets reminiscent of the Black Panthers; and some posed for a picture before the program with their right arm held up and hand clenched in a fist, as a tribute to the Black Power movement.

Whether the first lady was aware that Beyonce intended to perform Formation before she sat down with CBS’ Gayle King on Sunday is not clear. “I care deeply about the halftime show. Deeply,” she told King. “I got dressed for the halftime show. I hope Beyoncé likes what I’ve got on,” Obama joked. 

Beyoncé said in an interview, which aired on Friday, “I remember growing up watching the Super Bowl with my family. It’s an event families come together and watch.” 

Many, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, wondered why the singer then chose to use one of the world’s largest stages to denigrate police officers and make a controversial political statement. “So if you’re going to have entertainment, let’s have decent, wholesome entertainment, and not use it as a platform to attack the people who put their lives at risk to save us,” he said. 

As reported by Fox Business, Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke asked Beyonce to simply apply the Golden Rule and consider how she would have reacted if the half-time show had made allusions to the Ku Klux Klan.

“Them coming out, Beyonce, in those Black Panther type uniforms, would that be acceptable if a white band came out in hoods and white sheets in the same sort of fashion? We would be appalled and outraged,” said Clarke.

“The Black Panthers are a subversive hate group in America. I think she could have done a better job,” he added.

Congress Just Took Big Step Toward Delivering This Nasty Surprise To Michelle Obama

Like all first ladies, Michelle Obama has used her husband’s position in Washington to push her own personal causes. But unlike most, she has somehow been able to get her pet ideas enforced as law.

Now Congress is finally looking to cancel her most ambitious — and unpopular — program.

The first lady has made herself notorious for creating stricter school lunch rules meant, she says, to make children healthier. But the change in what kids are given for lunch has been met with upturned noses by kids, increased food waste in schools, and anger from parents and school administrators alike.

After years of mounting complaints from school systems across the country, Congress is looking to eliminate the first lady’s unpopular school lunch rules.

Bipartisan legislation was announced from the Senate this week that could end the school lunch rules enacted by the president’s control over the Department of Education and the Department of Agriculture, and without any previous acts by Congress.

The bill, introduced by Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and the committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, moves to end the rules and also seeks to address the massive rise in food waste that has been seen since the rules were implemented. The bill has the support of the School Nutrition Association (SNA) which represents 55,000 school food service employees across the country.

“In the absence of increased funding, this agreement eases operational challenges and provides school meal programs critical flexibility to help them plan healthy school meals that appeal to students,” SNA president Jean Ronnei told the Associated Press.

As The Daily Caller notes, a year ago changes to the school nutrition rules were proposed, but Michelle Obama promised to fight “until the bitter end” to keep her guidelines in place. As a result, no changes have been made.

If passed and signed by the president, the bill would require the Department of Agriculture to create new sodium and whole grain policies within 90 days.

Kids have almost universally abhorred the lunches resulting from the first lady’s rules. By June of last year it had been calculated 1.2 million had dropped out of school lunch programs because of the changes.

But it isn’t just the kids who find the new mandated lunch menus distasteful. School administrations and lunchroom workers have also fought bitterly against the rules.

The Seat Next To Michelle Obama Will Be Left Empty At The State Of The Union- Here’s Why

The White House announced on Friday that while President Barack Obama delivers his last State of the Union Address next week, a seat next to Michelle Obama will be left empty.

Obama told 20,000 supporters on a conference call that the seat on Tuesday night during the address before Congress “will be left empty for the victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice.”

“They need the rest of us to speak for them. To tell their stories. To honor their memory,” the White House said in a written statement, according to USA Today. “To remind every single one of our representatives that it’s their responsibility to do something about this.”

The move by the White House comes on top of Obama’s executive actions announced on Monday to address gun violence, as well as his participation in CNN’s Guns in America town hall Thursday night.

As reported by Western Journalism, Taya Kyle, whose husband, Chris, was the subject of the movie American Sniper and a victim of gun violence, challenged President Obama at the town hall on the effectiveness of more gun control legislation. She pointed out that gun violence has dropped to records lows over the last several years, while gun ownership has reached record highs. 

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced earlier this week that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will give the Republican response to Obama’s State of the Union Address. The governor received high praise for her leadership following last June’s Charleston shooting.

Michelle Just Prepared For Barack’s Last State Of The Union By Revealing Her True Priorities

With only one year left in his reign over Washington, the era of Barack Obama is winding down; but before he leaves office, the president has one more State Of The Union address to give. First Lady Michelle Obama recently sent out an email to remind us of this fact; but at the tail of her email, Michelle revealed what some might say is her real priority.

Obama took the occasion to send an email to supporters to celebrate her marriage to Barack and warn that he has only a year to “make change.”

Michelle also went on to thank supporters for “being right there alongside him, doing the hard work of organizing.”

She went on to deliver all the talking points being peddled by the Obama administration before she ended with her thanks to supporters. But it was the hyper-linked image included in the message that some might say really tells what she wants with her email. It is yet another fundraising message.

For a president who won’t be running for office ever again, Michelle Obama is using the last speech to raise more money.

The State Of The Union speech, of course, is required by law and has been delivered in one form or another since our first president, George Washington.

Each year, the president of the United States is required to deliver an update on the country, usually called the “State Of The Union” address. While George Washington did deliver his addresses in person to a joint session of Congress, the practice was discontinued by Thomas Jefferson. It stayed as a written report delivered to Congress until Woodrow Wilson revived the live delivery of the address in 1913.

Unfortunately, more recent presidents have used the address to throw out a laundry list of big programs, and to float policy balloons–many of which never come to fruition, and often are never even introduced.

Here is the full text of Michelle’s email as revealed by Paul Bedard:

Twenty-six years ago, I fell in love with Barack because of his compassion and his desire to make life better for other people. It’s just who he is — and it’s who he tries to be every day as President.

He only has 12 months left as your President, and I know he’s anxious to make the most of every opportunity to make change. And P, you’d better believe that you being right there alongside him, doing the hard work of organizing, matters to him.

On January 12, Barack will give his last State of the Union address, and OFA is one of the groups making sure people are preparing to watch, and recommitting to the work ahead.

Add your name, and say you’ll tune in and get ready for the fights ahead.

OFA supporters are some of the best change makers out there. It’s because of your hard work, passion, and dedication that we’ve accomplished so much over this past year.

We’ve continued to create jobs and rebuild our economy. We’ve cut carbon pollution. We’ve given millions more Americans the security of health care. And we’ve witnessed historic victories for equality across the country.

Those are the kinds of victories Barack would love to celebrate with you. Say you’ll watch the State of the Union, and make sure you hear what’s next:

Thanks, Michelle Obama
