Cost of Clinton-Obama Air Force One ride disclosed

The Hillary Clinton campaign has disclosed in its August Federal Election Commission filings that it has paid $36,602.99 in the campaign’s use of Air Force One.

A Clinton aide told CNBC that the costs associated with Clinton’s July 5 Air Force One flight from Washington to Charlotte, North Carolina, with President Barack Obama was included in that total. That day was the first official joint campaign event for Obama and Clinton.

The Air Force Once expenses were listed under “DNC Travel Offset Account.” All of Clinton’s plane expenditures during the campaign, except the Air Force One flight, have been categorized as under “Travel.”

No specific details were disclosed with the “DNC Travel Offset Account.” When asked for a breakdown of the expenses to determine the exact cost for Clinton’s travel on Air Force One on July 5, the campaign declined, referring back to the total of $36,602.99 paid. As with Clinton’s other charter plane expenditures in FEC reports — no details on dates or destinations have been disclosed.

Millions to be Hit Hard by this Coming ‘Entitlements Crisis’

Former Fed Head Alan Greenspan Warns of Massive “Entitlements Crisis” that Nobody Is Talking About… Here’s How Savvy Americans Are Preparing…

On January 29, U.S. government debt surpassed a record $19 TRILLION.

It took over 200 years to rack up the first $1 trillion in debt. But would you believe that Washington has racked up the last $1 trillion of debt in JUST 14 MONTHS?

Deficit spending is parabolic, and it’s destroying the savings of unsuspecting Americans. Former head of the U.S. Fed Alan Greenspan put it simply: “Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth.”

But while the U.S. debt is hurtling toward $20 trillion, there’s another economic time bomb that’s ticking down until it explodes…

This Is the “Economic Time Bomb” Alan Greenspan Worries About Most

Greenspan is warning of a pending “Entitlements Time Bomb.”

The problem, he says, is that welfare programs like Social Security and Medicare are legal entitlements that have nothing to do with real-world economics.

When somebody reaches a certain age, they are legally entitled to benefits – whether the government is able to pay for them or not. And right now, the government doesn’t have the means to pay. Greenspan says…

“I don’t know how it’s going to resolve, but there’s going to be a crisis.”

How can one be so sure about the coming crisis? If you look at the numbers, it’s a mathematical certainty: Since 2010, Social Security has been paying out more than it has collected in taxes. And as millions of Baby Boomers retire, the shortfall gets even bigger.

You Can’t Count on Washington to Address This Crisis

Our elected officials aren’t doing a thing to avoid this fast-approaching catastrophe. Greenspan says:

“Entitlements are considered the third rail of American politics. You touch them and you lose. Republicans don’t want to touch it. Democrats don’t want to touch it. You will never hear one word from either side.”

Since Washington won’t deal with the problem, the U.S. is like a high-speed train flying for a solid brick wall. Upon impact, there will be financial carnage at every level – from big government down to the average retirement account.

Are your savings protected from what’s coming? Do you even know how to prepare?

If you have an IRA or 401(k), here’s one way to prepare (before it’s too late)

To preserve your wealth, Greenspan offers one simple piece of advice: Gold. In short, he says, “Gold stands in the way of this insidious process [wealth confiscation].”

And one of the best ways to move into gold and silver is to convert your IRA or 401(k) into a “Self Directed” Gold IRA.

Trump Just Exposed this U.S. Debt Secret

Trump Just Said Something about the U.S. Debt that Nobody Wants to Say… And It’s Got Some Americans Very, Very Worried…

Trump is a businessman who understands debt. In fact, he calls himself “The King of Debt.” So when he talks about the mountain of U.S. debt (currently over $19 trillion!) it pays to listen.

To keep the government running, the U.S. must keep borrowing at faster and faster rates. And, in order for this to be possible, interest rates MUST remain low.

This is why Trump has publicly said that he’s in favor of continuing the Fed’s low interest rate policies, telling CNBC that without them, “We’re going to have some very major problems.”

How Would President Trump Handle the U.S. Debt?

According to Trump, he’d do the same as his predecessors: Print more money.

“People said I want to go and buy debt and default on debt… these people are crazy. This is the United States government… You never have to default because you print the money…

Printing more money can postpone a national debt crisis – if interest rates remain low. But if rates go up, Trump knows there will be only TWO options:

Option #1: Washington defaults on its debt (like Puerto Rico just did).

Option #2: The Fed creates massive amounts of money to repay the debt, thereby hyper inflating (and rapidly devaluing) the U.S. dollar.

It’s a Catch-22 because neither option will be good for Americans.

What Trump’s Statements Mean for Gold…

Look, one way or another the next president is going to have to deal with the U.S. debt – soon to be $20 trillion.

And if the U.S. defaults on the debt or tries to hyper-inflate its way out of the problem, it’s going to make gold extremely attractive to the American public as a way to preserve savings.

Media turn to cannibalism in fight against Trump

Donald Trump has upended the 2016 campaign to the point at which journalists and media figures themselves have been attacked by their own peers, after interviews in which they failed to confront Trump to the satisfaction of the mainstream press.

Throughout the Republican primaries, Trump proved himself an impossible-to-resist interview, due to his unpredictable nature and willingness to court controversy.
