Ah, it looks like Obama is going to move his ENTIRE caliphate as well as 215 US CEOs to Mumbai for 4 days in November. From SHTFPlan:
As tens of millions of American families struggle to pay the rent and put food on the table, President Obama and about 3000 of his closest friends and security personnel will spend an estimated $200 million dollars per day when he visits Mumbai, India for four days from November 6th through November 9th.
Though the total won’t exactly reach $1 Billion dollars for his four day stay, it comes pretty close, and with government being government, we can always add a good 20% to 30% to estimates they put forth.[From Taxpayers to Pay Nearly $1 BILLION For Emperor’s Visit to Mumbai]
As one of my readers astutely wrote to me, it would seem that "Vivek" (Kundra or otherwise) really DOES mean 'Fraud' or 'Shoplifter' in Hindustani. Now ask either the Caliph or his underling about their 'carbon footprint' of hauling around "40 planes & 6 armored cars". UPDATE: We have an answer from 'Watts Up With That? :: 8,469 metric tons of the stuff you exhale. Oh Barry, hast thou remove-d thy GreenShirt? Seems so.
UPDATE: How could so much money be spent and on what? Here's your answer:
"With trade high on his agenda, some 200 odd top US business chiefs, including soft drink giant Pepsico's India-born CEO Indra Nooyi, are expected to join US President Barack Obama on his India visit next month."
Actually, the number, cited elsewhere, is 215 executive slaveowner asses that must be wiped with the finest silk. (you really have to follow that link, commenter 'Satish Chandra' is a hoot!).
UPDATE2: Every junket needs a trade show, right? Here it is:
That's right, boyz n girlz.. you're being sold down the road at 'The US-India Business & Entrepreneurship Summit' courtesy of the Hindustani version of AIPAC, aka the USIBC. Let's just call 'opening markets' what it really is-
And they say "da Jewz" control everything? Please. Israel got nuthin' on Bharat or their new BFFs: Barry & Duh CEOs.
Oh, and hark: It's a 10 day junket according to reader Frank Flag:
Mumbai just bein' a 4-day 'whistle stop' foar the Pimpsta in Chief! Even if it's cheaper to gaffe, bow & scrape to allies than the 'superior Industanis' Barry's still gonna pimp $2 Billion OPM--- iz 10 Day Azn pimp Tour, yo!
Now we know one major reason for TimTim's QE2. Walkin' around money! Gaffsta in Chief gotta have wurds to the client-states about them eevil Chinese!
SemiSeriously. $2 Bil almost buys India HALF of its first rusty Russian aircraft carrier. Or it could feed a lot of serfs at home.
