    Looking for a gorgeous vacation home? Well, former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are selling their Martha Vineyard beach house, so if you've got a spare $17.5 million, it could be yours. Once dubbed the 2013 summer White House, the stunning oceanfront property, which Sotheby's describes as a "trophy property," is located on Martha's Vineyard's South Shore, and is chock-full of incredible outdoor amenities. It has its own private beach and dock, as well as a heated infinity pool, half-basketball court, and a large screened porch. Not only is the outdoor space pretty incredible, the house itself...

    AUSTIN, Texas -- Democratic mega-donor Steve Mostyn, a powerful Texas trial lawyer who was among the nation's largest backers of liberal causes and candidates, died after what his wife says was "a sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue." He was 46. Amber Mostyn said Thursday that her husband died the previous day, calling him "a devoted father who adored his children and never missed any of their sporting activities." She did not confirm a cause of death but said, "If you or a loved one are thinking about suicide, or experiencing a health crisis, call the National...

    Civil War black soldiers in the 54th Massachusetts could distinguish between individual bigots and the flag of the nation that was fighting to free the slaves. I wonder why football players, their enablers in politics, media can't do the same? Oppression certainly isn’t what it used to be. Instead of vicious police dogs, water cannon, billy clubs and Bull Connor, America is greeted with the sight of millionaires and billionaires kneeling in football stadiums trying to make white America feel guilty without so much as a Chihuahua yapping in the background. And they aren’t alone. The Opposition Media, celebrity culture,...

    A football-mad lottery millionaire has splashed out on his own pitch complete with a dugout on the touchline. Former postman Matt Evans 37, turned his back garden into a mini soccer stadium so his mates can come for a kickabout. The super-rich bachelor is blowing his fortune on his love for the beautiful game. He said: “I’m living the dream by having my own pitch with lifesize goals and all the white markings. “I invite my old workmates around for a game and we sit in the dugout to talk about football. “My dad sometimes comes along for a game...

  • Obama Under Fire From Liberals For Never Ending Luxury Vacations

    Former President Barack Obama is under fire from his Democrat base for taking never ending luxurious vacations since leaving office. Obama continues to embark on his endless mystery tour of millionaire and billionaire hotspots and retreats around the world. Ex-Presidents should go on vacation, but Obama seems to be flaunting a type of luxurious post-presidential lifestyle that would make the Kardashian’s blush. Democrat strategist, Pat Caddell, a former adviser to President Jimmy Carter, commented that Obama’s “trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous” and said that Obama’s vacations are “unprecedented, and a far cry from how Carter...

    Executive leadership coach Lolly Daskal has worked with hundreds of millionaires and billionaires. The secret to their success doesn't boil down to one specific habit, routine or personality trait, she tells CNBC: "The secret of the true billionaire is what's going on on the inside." "There's so much literature out there about how to succeed," she continues. "Most of the books talk about 'how': Do this and you will be that. But it doesn't work that way. We have it backwards. What we really need to do is to figure out who we are on the inside. We need to...

    Tom Morello constructed a band dedicated to bashing capitalism, among other supposed “injustices.” But beware, Morello fans: this guitarist is, unsurprisingly, worth millions. Tom Morello, lead guitarist of Prophets of Rage and Rage Against the Machine, takes to Twitter constantly – though not necessarily to discuss his music (given the band’s taste for screaming and ear-ringing metallica, maybe this isn’t such a bad thing). In light of his loud adherence to the Resistance, Morello has an unquenchable penchant for the political.

Dezer is planning to park the cars IN his apartment. Miami's 60-floor Porsche Design Tower -- the first of its kind in the world -- has glass-enclosed elevators that bring sports cars up to the plush homes of their owners. The residential skyscraper, which has 132 units and opened in March, is the latest of several super-luxury buildings dotting the Miami coastline. But what if you don't own a Porsche?...

    The 3.5 million high-net-worth individuals located in the Asia Pacific region makes the market increasingly important for the luxury sector, as the affluent group's appetite for high-end continues to grow. Countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations are becoming an increasingly important part of consumerism in the luxury market. Countries that make up the association such as Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are expected to become the fourth largest economy by 2020. “The ASEAN nations are part of a high-growth region where we are active in terms of member growth and hosting...

    Obama wanted to be Trump: Surely nothing in recent times matches the glaring hypocrisy of Barack Hussein Obama aspiring to be Donald J. Trump and coveting the riches that mark Trump’s lifestyle. “More than two decades before he railed against Donald Trump’s “temperament” and “core values,” a young Barack Obama dreamed of becoming the billionaire businessman.” (Fox News, May 3, 2017) And he almost did. Obama, with millions of dollars, left the U.S. presidency as a very rich man. The difference between millionaire and billionaire is only a matter of where the zeroes are put.

    On Wednesday, Fox News announced that it was parting ways with "The O'Reilly Factor" host Bill O'Reilly, whose ratings dominated the network. But due to a contract O'Reilly signed late last month, he'll be walking away with quite a sizable severance package. "It is a staggering amount," a source involved in the exit maneuverings told CNN Money. The outlet reported that Fox will pay O'Reilly "tens of millions of dollars." Due to a confidentiality agreement, 21st Century Fox and O'Reilly's representatives would not acknowledge the payout. But two well-placed sources told CNN Money that O'Reilly will be paid handsomely as...
  • Bernie Sanders Slams Billionaires, Gets Reminded He Owns 3 Houses

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is having a difficult time with his latest tweet assailing the wealthy. First, Sanders, who ran a progressive presidential campaign criticizing Wall Street and the rich, tweeted out a message Thursday evening with what seems to be a typo, telling billionaires: "You can have it all." After deleting the initial tweet and replacing it with a new one, swapping "can" with "can't", Sanders was mercilessly mocked for questioning how yachts and cars billionaires need when he and his wife bought their third house — a $600,000 beachfront residence — in August.
