President Obama arrives in Brussels… with a 900-person entourage

While First Lady Michelle Obama enjoys her $8,400/night suite at the five-star Westin Hotel in Chaoyang, President Obama is running up quite the tab in Europe. According to The Guardian, the President’s trip to Brussels required a 900-person entourage and cost the city about $10.4 million – no word on how much money the American taxpayer are on the hook for.

The Guardian reports:

As Belgium’s capital and host to the EU and Nato, Brussels is used to deploying heavy security when big names pop by. But US President Barack Obama’s visit on Tuesday will strain the city like never before with €10m ($10.4m, £8.4m) of Belgian money being spent to cover his 24 hours in the country.

The president will arrive on Tuesday night with a 900-strong entourage, including 45 vehicles and three cargo planes. Advance security teams orchestrating every last detail have combed Brussels already, checking the sewers and the major hospitals, while American military helicopters were last week given the green light for overflights.

[…]

The city’s four-stage security scale will be raised from two to three during the visit, Obama’s first to the country. A tight cordon will surround The Hotel, the 27-storey former Hilton in the Toison d’Or shopping district where the president will spend the night.

“That might be bigger than Puffy Combs,” Pat joked of the President’s entourage.

Brussels mayor Yvan Mayeur explained typical visits and summits run the city about $690,000 (€500,000) in extra police, military and transport expenses. But “you can multiply that figure by 20” Mayeur said of President Obama’s trip.

To add insult to injury, the Secret Service is once again making headlines for inappropriate behavior. The Washington Post reports three agents were sent home ahead of President Obama’s arrival in the Netherlands after one agent was found “drunk and passed out” in an Amsterdam hotel.

“I have never in my life seen such behavior from the Secret Service,” Glenn said. “We have seen it over and over and over again in this regime – the Secret Service misbehaving and behaving badly.”

According to TheBlaze:

The agents sent home from Amsterdam were placed on administrative leave, according to The Washington Post, which first reported the disciplinary action. The newspaper said all three were on the Counter Assault Team, which defends the president if he comes under attack, and that one agent was a “team leader.”

One agent was discovered highly intoxicated by staff at a hotel, who reported it to the U.S. Embassy, said a person familiar with the situation, who wasn’t authorized to discuss the alleged behavior on the record and demanded anonymity. The other two agents were deemed complicit because they didn’t intervene despite being in a position to assist the drunken agent or tamp down his behavior, the person said.

While Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said the incident was prior to the President’s arrival and did not compromise the his security in any way, Glenn believes this is a larger issue that must be addressed.

“That puts our President in peril. It puts the United States of America in jeopardy. This is a bell I have been ringing before this guy was even elected. Secret Service, you’ve got to do your job,” Glenn concluded. “This is a very, very bad thing. I think the Secret Service has gone dark. I really do. I hate to say that. I love these guys. But I fear they have gone dark… It’s not one bad apple. One bad apple does spoil the whole bunch, girl. I’m sorry… Somebody has got to go in there and clean that rat’s nest out.”

    Beck fails to tell the whole story yet again. He’s disgusted by Obama’s trips to Africa, but doesn’t mention that Bush made TEN trips to Africa, costing much more in total. Obama made FOUR trips, Clinton made EIGHT, and H. Bush made just ONE trip to Africa.

    Just another example of Beck complaining without considering the possible reasons for the increased security like possible known threats.

    It’s all about Bush to you leftists. Get over it. YOu complained about Bush and promised the American people Obama would be different. If what Bush did was so bad, why has Obama doubled down instead of taking a different path. Really, this BS has got to stop. Beck did not say it was OK when Bush spent too much money and Obama has certainly upped the anti on spending all the while talking about income inequality, more money for the poor, transparency, etc. 900 people? Those providing security are drunk so we must spend more money to get more people so the drunk employees are not sacrificing security? Stop the out of control spending!

  • Anonymous

    My complaint is not about Bush, it’s about Beck because he simply complains about everything Obama does with no objective discussion or context of previous administrations. Obama and the other presidents may have legitimate reasons for their foreign travel and their security entourage may be necessary. We’re neither privy to the details of these president’s foreign meetings, nor are either of us experts on appropriate security measures or threats that there may be to the president. So don’t pretend you know whether Obama should be at these meeting or whether there’s a need for heightened security.

    He spends our money like it’s nothing at every opportunity he gets. He spends our money wastefully over and over again, and the moonbats who believe him still believe his outrageous lies when the facts are totally available for anyone to see how lawless he is, totally disregarding his oath of office, as well as disregarding how out of control his spending is (far above and beyond any spending Bush EVER did)… King Obama is a tyrant, a fool, a liar, and a con-artist and his lawlessness has been fairly well documented at this point.

He’s cavalier and arrogant. he has ZERO business being the president and does NOT represent me.

    Amerikah has been looted by both parties and they don’t rat each other out. When money goes to Kenya and all over the world it goes to the dictator and then a major portion is kicked back to the originator’s and deposited in off shore banks. This country is bankrupt beyond all known math. The Fed Reserve owners let these parasites get away with it because all the money is borrowed from them and the dirty secret is that amerikah is in a constant state of receivership to the the private owners of the Fed Reserve. It’s the biggest financial scam and crime in the history of the world.

    I think mess that Obama will leave is no less then Bush’s, may be even worse. It is different times, Landree, access to information is on a different level then in Bush times so Bush would have been executed by the left for much more then Iraq war. Plus Obama was promising transparency but is most non-transparent.
    Regarding Obama representing: if not Iraq war, Bush had great way to unite. Obama is true divider. If he would just disagree but he shows such disrespect towards 50% of the country, otherwise he would be liked.

    Obama’s paranoia mingled with his self importance could be described as a show off who abuses others by making them pay for his insatiable demands. It’s the word abuse which reporters have swept under the carpet.
    His abuse of Brussel’s taxpayers should never have been allowed.
    The man, himself, is a humiliation to American’s and brings shame to his title.
    Because of unbridled extravagance, wastefulness, and a heaping upon himself of embarrassing indulgences and he does so without restraint, or care to those who loan and those who pay. He lives on the backs of others.
    He has become a beggar.
    Never has the world encountered one so needy.

    Fair enough. But one has to admit that Obama inherited an absolute economic disaster. Daunting problems like outsourcing of American jobs to China and India, massive war debt, a crashed economy, and a Congress totally unwilling from day one to work with him. I’ve never thought Obama was a great candidate for President, but I also don’t think any president could change the direction of these extreme problems within ten years of election.

    Mr. Beck,
    I believe you have the wrong opinion of the US Secret Service. They are for the most part the most dutiful and loyal protection an elected official could ever wish for. However, with that said, they are assigned to “protect” the Lawless One, his unappreciative family and uppity friends who see this protection as a “perk” and those who provide it as peons. A loyal Body Guard or anyone else, can take just so much of the dark cloud that is the present POTUS – the one without the premise of Duty or Honor. The “Bad Apple” you are referring to is the one on top of the heap.

    What I want to know about the drunken sailor story is: Was this a setup? Was he slipped a Mickey? Is this a continuation of the mindless Military Brass purge? Does the SS Agent know Colonel Riley?

    To handle your “thoughts” in order. Reagan inherited a worse economy. Second, don’t you remember that for the first two years, Obama had BOTH houses of congress? That is how he passed Obamacare. (Reagan was not so fortunate.) Increasing wasteful spending, welfare, taxes/fees, regulations, etc. is exactly opposite what Reagan did to bring out our economy out of the cellar. Opposite approach and opposite results. Coincidence–I think not. And with regards to Beck, if you had listened to him during Bush’s “moderate to progressive” approach you would know that he did not give Bush a free pass. Beck is harder on Obama because Obama has taken the insanity to a new level. $17 trillion in debt, etc…

    So I think CNBC should do a show on “American Greed” about the Obama family and their lavish lifestyle using other people’s money. I guess this is what Communist leaders do. Or maybe Obama is just soaking up all of the Reparation money that descendants of American slaves think they are owed (although not Obama’s ancestors—perhaps maybe Michelle thinks she’s owed a lavish lifestyle for her ancestor’s slavery????) And yet no one in the Left Stream media dare criticize the first “affirmative action” black President even though he’s destroying our country and robbing us blind—because…he’s black…he gets a pass.

    Then go to their website and contact your own representatives and tell him/her if

    And now he’s postponing the individual mandate for Obama/Democrats Don’t Care Health TAX – I believe this is UNCONSTITUTIONAL UNILATERAL change #32. Buck Sexton had something on his show about DEMANDING Obama/Democrats Don’t Care Health TAX be implemented EXACTLY as it was written in the beginning, exactly what they voted on. “We have to hurry and pass this bill (TAX) so you can see what’s in it” (Nan Botox Pelousy-turned 74 today and doesn’t look a day over 80!) with NO exemptions, NO postponing anyone’s mandated date to sign up, NO UNION OR CONGRESS/STAFF EXEMPTIONS, NO OBAMA FAMILY EXEMPTIONS. I think that’s an excellent idea. Then let’s see how many Democrat Socialists get reelected in Nov. Barry Hussein Dunham Soetoro has already pushed most of it back until after Jan. 2017!

    I believe when the CONSERVATIVES take the Senate and win the House this November, we should push for charges for high crimes and treason, perjury, murder and voter suppression (IRS targeting Conservative/Patriot groups) and not impeachment. If he’s impeached, his legislation will stand until and if the next president repeals it all. ARRESTED, TRIED AND LET THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BE THE JURY!! He and all of his administration, past and present, have to be arrested and tried and found guilty and hanged for treason against America and ALL OF US that knew better than to vote for a Community DISorganizer. Anyone that DID vote for him should also be prosecuted for giving the most important job in the world to someone that’s NEVER held a real job nor signed the back of a paycheck or earned an honest dollar. And take back every penny this family has spent on every vacation – Freeze their Swiss Bank Accounts! Not to mention all of the money they’re spending on TV commercials for this monstrosity TAX that is LAW. If it’s been voted on, passed and signed by Barry Hussein, why do they have to advertise for it? Because they know it sucks and the young aren’t as stupid as he’d hoped. BUT… he’s now SAYING (LIES, LIES, LIES) he’s “going to stop the NSA spying program” so the young and easily persuadable will fall back in love with him – while us older, wiser people know it’s just another lie! He wouldn’t know the truth if it hit him in the face like a brick.

    I’d love for Rand Paul to get the nomination for POTUS in ’16. He’s the ONLY one that’s ever mentioned The Fed and getting rid of it. That would be the best first start in getting back on track. As long as we have that unConstitutional branch of govt. printing money (digitizing money) 24/7 and not giving a shiet about how it’s destroying our country and our kids’ futures, we don’t stand a chance. I like a lot of our choices, but DON’T let Reince (sp?) Preibus and the RNC pick our candidate AGAIN. Tell the RNC you WON’T vote Republican if they pick the squishy loser again. Any time you get an email or piece of junk mail asking for donations to the RNC, write back and LET THEM HAVE IT!! I have a couple of times and boy, does it feel GOOD!! I wouldn’t give them a penny if I had millions. Romney would have been much better than the thief in there now, but he’s NOT who we wanted.

Made me want to throw up. I’ve only been off work a few years and what I’m learning makes me sick. But Hussein wasn’t Elected.

    So that when Russia invades America, we can’t defend ourselves. Remember, he told Medeved (sp?) to tell Vlad “I’ll have more flexibility after the election” KNOWING he was going to “WIN” i.e. STEAL the election via massive voter fraud. 109% in many precincts went to Hussein while ZERO went to Romney, voting machines cast for Romney went to Hussein and the poll workers promised to “fix them.” They fixed them alright. In Hussein’s favor. The 2012 election was STOLEN, as was the ’08 election.

    He HATES America and is proud and more than happy to destroy her. When Bush added $4.5 trillion to the debt in EIGHT years, it was “irresponsible and unpatriotic” but when Hussein adds $7 trillion in under FOUR years, “the debt isn’t a problem.” He’s a pathological liar and more… things I can’t say on here, lest I have a knock at the door tonight or tomorrow…

    I don’t think people have realized that the Democrats have full control, the US will be broke. I think the elections were rigged in the past, and that’s not because I didn’t want Obama to win. I had a neighbor who was on disability, I was considerate towards her because I believe I should feel blessed to be in good health and able to work. There were days I would come home so tired, not tired from the work but tired from the liberal harassment from the people I worked with. The day I retired, she was outside, and I said, I finally get to retire and get some rest. We had been neighbors for ten years. She didn’t respond the way I thought she would, I thought she would say “good for you, you have worked hard and earned some time off to rest”. Nope, she said, with a spiteful voice “your just like the rest of us now”. I never had a clue she was jealous or hated me because I was able to buy extra things even though I was working. That is how Obama followers think. I believe certain percentage of people voted for him, so we would fail as a nation and the American people would become poorer and poorer. She didn’t respect the fact that I worked and was paying into the very system she was drawing from. They honestly don’t care, how hard people work, their just happy they get to take someone else money.

    Glenn, the rat lives in the White House! It has been well published that the POTUS has no respect for the Secret Service and less respect for our troops! I feel the morale of the Secret Service is at an all time low because they see, day-in & day-out, how this POTUS is destroying this country. Granted, the people of the service took an oath to protect the POTUS. And there is no excuse for them not to operate in a professional manner. At the same time, the POTUS took an oath to uphold the Constitution and protect the American people! You, I, the world,and the Secret Service see that the POTUS is not upholding his oath of office, every day! Look at the stress that this POTUS has caused the American people. My God, look how stressed out you have been over this POTUS! Not a day goes by when we all learn of another jack-ass situation that this POTUS has made! Can we imagine the stress that these Secret Service people are going through every day of the year, because they see the destruction of America right before their eyes every day on a much closer range than anyone! The people of the Secret Service are a very dedicated group,dedicated to the love of our country. As are our military is!
    Maybe it’s time that a plan should be set in place that all agents must go through a mental evaluation every 90 days, or something.

    Reagan certainly did not inherent a worse economy. This recession can only be compared to the Great Depression where the Fed was actually urgently trying to prevent a run on banks. Yes, I do remember Obama had both Houses, which is why he rushed through as much as he could before the Congress changed. Otherwise he would have gotten nothing he wanted. Remember the “Grand Bargain”? That would have been the smartest comprimise of his term, but he couldn’t get it done. I think that was the biggest failing of government, not just Obama. If the right breaks down the 17 trillion, there would be much debate among them on what should have been cut. Most of the stimulus was in the form of tax breaks, which the right should love. Economists praise TARP. We have to pay our war debt. Nobody wants to cut the military. Nobody wants to cut entitlements to seniors. Many agencies were cut, like NASA, NIH, NOAH, NREL, etc., which I think is very bad because those scientific organizations in partnership with academia and industry, do fundamental science that leads to real products and increased GDP. Increased spending on the border, who wants to cut that? How about Homeland security? Does the public REALLY want NSA to stop listening for terrorists? I think not. I’ll be happy to hear Beck take an objective view of what substantive cuts should be made to specific programs and realistic consequences of doing so. Beck’s constant complaints about Obama’s every move are shallow, but they make him about $120 million a year because they inflame the nerves of his listeners.

    Ahhhh! I still maintain we have our very first Gatsby president! 0bama is unaware of how a real president behaves.. so he is behaving as he assumes a president conducts himself—like ROYALTY. Spending the taxpayers’ money at unrealistically rapid speed.. on himself and his entourage… because he is KING. For those who did not have the benefit of literary classics, “The Great Gatsby” is a novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald … which upon original release did not fair as well as his other novels. It’s a relatively short novel.. but quickly became a classic because it’s about the rich and powerful who destroy innocent people’s lives and then retreat into their power and money. The era is different–taking place during Prohibition, the names are different, but the characters are timeless. Nouveau riche frequently depicts people who acquire money and attempt to live in the wealthy manner that they inaccurately assume the very wealthy actually live. 0bama is our Gatsby president. None of this would be of any concern if it weren’t for the fact that our economy is in the toilet and millions of Americans are struggling to survive without jobs, or working multiple jobs.. etc.

    You and your opinion are welcome. Obama’s not using tactics unlike other US presidents. He’s just doing it at a higher frequency. The reason he’s maximizing his Executive power is because he’s given up negotiating with the House, especially after they walked away from the “Grand Bargain” and the tea-party lead debt ceiling debacle. The reason Obama’s allowed to do it is because he has a team of Constitutional lawyers advising him on what he can do. If you analyze the 17 trillion, there would be much debate on what was necessary. That figure is comprised of TARP, war debt, veteran debt ( 1 trillion), military, and many programs even the right doesn’t want to cut, and the stimulus, which was mostly tax cuts. Substantive cuts to entitlements will be very hard on seniors and the poor. Negotiating those cuts is necessary, but seemingly impossible with this gridlocked government.

    Why on earth does this president need to transport 900 people? That is more than four company strength infantry troop units – nearly an entire battalion. He has to go places, and do the business of the American people but this is excessive, unwarranted and an abuse of his budget and the treasury. Someone has to get the message through to this man and his family that they do not own the treasury and can’t simply spend their way through it. Where is Congress’ oversight on spending? It is apparent someone has raided the bank, and they have no self control. We need a Congress that will tell this man the word NO when appropriate, or more importantly when his desires are beyond sanity. If it were within my authority I would ground this administration – no more foreign travel, minimal domestic travel unless the situation requires the president to appear. He has at his disposal the ability to communicate globally via the media and other means, so why are we sending him all over the world? Furthermore, why are we allowing his family to go traveling for their own amusement like this China excursion? If liberals want to bring up Bush, in what way does what Bush did justify this president’s spendthrift abuse of our money?

    The short answer is – it doesn’t. Bush is no longer a factor in the office, and even if you do compare them, the Obama administration in office 5 years has by far spent more money selfishly than the Bush administration did in 8 years. If anything his wasteful spending has accelerated since he began his second term. Not only is this man stealing from all of us, he is doing it without shame or any attempt at justifying it. The rest of America is placed on an austere budget, yet Obama and family lavish upon themselves the lifestyle of royalty. This is wrong, and there is absolutely no reason for them to continue to get away with it.

    When is Congress going to act?

    Sure we can do something about it – we can demand Congress cut his money off. At a time when the rest of the nation is barely getting by, they should have the sense of propriety not to abuse the system. They, of course, haven’t got an sort of restraint what so ever.

    The race card is the Obama “shield” from all criticism. It’s why McCain was such a push-over in 2008 because he was afraid to confront Obama on his communist and Islamic roots because the Left Stream Media would use the “R” word and call him racist.

    The percentage of Blacks (and Hispanics) on welfare is greater than the percentage of White people in the population, thus there will be more whites on welfare since whites are greater in number in the population. Referring to the Obamas soaking up “reparations”–was just one theory I postulated as to why the Obamas are so brazenly living high off the hog on other people’s money—the most logical reason is that they are just plain greedy and they take advantage of the taxpayers by their credo– “Git what you can git while the gitten’ is good.” They know that 90+% of blacks will support Obama even if he is a big fat shyster. I recommend you knock that chip off your shoulder and read something by Thomas Sowell, one of my heroes, along with Col. Allen West and Dr. Ben Carson.

Eight million dollar Christmas vacation to Hawaii, ten milliion for his trip to Egypt, and the real corker, Michelle’s 12-thousand dollar dress for a state dinner. Obama wants to “redistribute” the wealth…yours and mine…but not his. Only his is really our tax-payer money going down drain and into his pockets. He wants us to think he feels for the poor people in this country when he is the spend thrift of the world. The money he is spending could take care of all of our poor…there wouldn’t be any poor if that money were spent on them. If he really cared about the poor, he would stay home, and quit traveling the world spending money we don’t have. It looks to me like he is trying to travel as much as he can on the taxpayer dime before he leaves office. What other president in history has ever travelled as much as this guy?

    The most cynical of all of his financial maneuvering was to close the National Parks and Monuments and cutting off the White House tours during the government shutdown that he and his cronies in the Senate and House engineered and blamed on Republicans. They set the whole thing in motion by refusing to comply with their own law, the sequestration which was mandated by Obama’s own supposedly bi-partisan panel, and then blabbering to all the media outlets that the Republicans were responsible for the shut down. The Democrats were responsible for the whole thing because they made it politically impossible to oppose their strict defined parameters under sequestration, and then instead of making intelligent cuts under that act, they cherry picked the things they were willing to cut to make it the worst possible impact on the people instead of trimming back the waste and fraud the federal government is so full of. You can’t tell me that eliminating public use and access to National Parks, Monuments and the White House really met the requirements of the sequestration, that simply does not compute in rational terms. The responsibility for the shut down was hung on Republicans, despite the whole thing being designed by Democrats and the complicit media for promoting that lie.

    This administration has wasted more money on fraud, political paybacks, unnecessary expenditures and outright scams than they have ever cut from the budget, and for them to blame the harm on the Republicans stretches credibility past the breaking point! Liars, thieves, extortionists, frauds, cheats and just plain criminals seem to be the sum of who is in charge in DC, and this latest insult to the American people should not be tolerated. Where is the accountability? Where is the restraint and the fear of prosecution for breaking federal laws? We need a people’s advocate in Washington to hold these people responsible for their offenses, and it needs to begin with the Thief in Chief.

    Congress needs to do its job and get this situation under control. Grounding Air Force One would be a good place to start, along with placing realistic limits on foreign and domestic travel spending. There is no real reason to allow these excessive globe trotting BS sessions, and they produce absolutely no benefit to the country or the people. We can’t send astronauts to and from the ISS that we conceived, designed, financed and built, and this President has farmed out our space program to the Russians who have proven to be untrustworthy. They have been, and continue to be completely self interested and in no way are concerned about the world’s opinion of their acts, motives or any other thing. Now we can’t come and go because of the tenuous nature of our relationship with them. What happens if the Russians decide to pull the plug on the ISS and refuse to transport our personnel to and from it? For all practical intent and purpose, they have annexed the ISS in the same manner in which they now own Crimea. All of this is due to the gadabout President and his total lack of influence, leadership and ability to project power around the world – the only power that the Russians have ever understood. Because of the work of this man’s administration we now have gone from keeping the Russians in check to chasing our tail, wringing our hands, begging and fretting over what Putin plans to do next. This is not the American way, and it is no way to deal with tyrants like Putin, Assad, the Mullahs of Iran or the regimes in China and North Korea. They all know he is a do nothing and we the people are paying his bills.

    Impeachment is way over due.
