Air Force fighter jets again scrambled to enforce no-fly zone around President Trump’s Palm Beach home

February 21, 2017

Mar-A-LagoFor the second time in less than 48 hours, two U.S. Air Force fighter jets were quickly sent to Palm Beach County on Sunday to intercept an airplane that had entered restricted air space near President Donald Trump’s oceanfront estate.

When Trump is at Mar-a-lago in Palm Beach — as he has been for three weekends in a row — the airspace near the resort is off-limits to general aviation.

The F-16s made the intercept about noon Sunday, according to Air Force SMSgt. Chuck Marsh, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and U.S. Northern Command.

The general aviation aircraft was not in communication with air traffic control authorities when it entered the restricted air space, according to Marsh.

Once the F-16s got close to the plane in the southwest section of the restricted area, the Air Force pilots established communication and told the other pilot to leave the area, Marsh said.

    Most people don’t keep track of President Trump’s social calendar. They may not know when he is in town at his resort.

    Hopefully someone will keep a running tally of the president’s travel costs similar to what was done for his predecessor. I have no problem tracking such information provided it is done regardless of party affiliation.

    • bobnstuff

      They have already started tracking and it doesn’t look good.

      This is just one article of many but they all say the same thing.

      • justinwachin

        We should expect to see that. I’ve followed politics long enough to know what one side does, the other will do when they are in a similar position. They will probably take the action up a notch.

        By the way, I have no problem seeing that tracked. Every dollar that goes to presidential travel is one more dollar that adds to our national debt regardless of the president’s party affiliation.

        • bobnstuff

          I’m a believer in fiscal responsibility no matter who’s in charge. I also like seeing where our money is going. In case you haven’t heard there is a war brewing in Congress over spending. Trump has all these plans that cost a lot and the Tea Party will not support increasing the debt to pay for them. We could have another government shut down.

          • justinwachin

            Our nation has to get control of our spending and debt accumulation. That is true regardless of the party affiliation of the president.

            President Trump’s infrastructure improvement plan would seek about $1,000,000,000,000 in funding. President Obama got a similar amount during the early years of his presidency. If that amount hasn’t been spent maybe he can use those funds to pay for his improvements. If not bonds should be issued for this package and those bonds should be repaid over the next 15 to 30 years.

            I have no problems seeing bridges and roads repaired provided the money goes to make the repairs rather than to line the pockets of cronies.

          • bobnstuff

            I live near Pittsburgh and understand all to well just how bad our Bridges are. I support spending the money on repairing them. I have no problem in general with money invested into our country as long as we pay for them and we get value for our dollar. What I don’t support is cutting taxes while doing it. If you want the services you need to pay for them. As a rule the Republicans have not understood that and end up spending money we don’t have. Then they call the Democrats the tax and spend party.

          Where else can trump go and meet with people to conduct business without creating false news and blabber mouths.

          • justinwachin

            I suspect that access to the Oval Office is very limited. The White House is a fairly large building. Everyone who goes there is not going to meet with the president. The Oval Office is likely more secure than President Trump’s personal resort is.

            The leakers don’t have desks in the Oval Office. The false news may be created far from the president’s actual location. Rumors don’t require proximity.

            The area of the WH should be safe , but it is evident it is not. Some bugs are extremely hard to detect plus you have Schumer and Pelosi close by do to their titles.

          • justinwachin

            Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have their offices on Capitol Hill. They don’t have White House offices.

            The White House is probably the most bug and snooping resistant building in the United States. For example several decades ago they attached vibrators to the windows to prevent snoopers from eavesdropping by pointing lasers at the windows.

          • Retired

            The evidence is there that when in WDC fake news Breaks and not in Florida. You forget Pelosi and Schumer have access to what goes on . Until all of O’s people are iliminated there is no safety.

        They are all full of Shitsky like you . Your hate for Trump is coming in laud and clear .

      FAA puts out warnings for such things, which pilots are obligated to stay abreast of.

      • justinwachin

        It may take a few more encounters before pilots in the area will check the warnings. I’m not sure how far in advance the warning was posted.

        • CaMaven

          Forget about Trump. ALL pilots are obligated to check bulletins whenever they fly. Has nothing to do with getting used to Trump.

    • Tiger

      Trump is taking no salary. Michelle took 10 million in vacations in the first two years of O’s presidency taking extended family. The O’s saw the world along with many of their family, including her mother on our dime. They never spent one Christmas at home. They had no home. Look to the final bill of O’s and then you should Thank God for Trump.

      • bobnstuff

        Less then one month of Trumps travel so far. At his present rate of spending he will go through $9 Billion in travel in four years.

        • Retired

          You are showing your true colors , that is the only place he can go without the media and folks like you to prevent fake news .

          • bobnstuff

            Are you raising money for the victims of the great Swedish terrorist attack? He heard it on Fox News. Trumps travel is real, he did go to Florida each weekend. It costs a bunch of money paid for by the tax payer every times he goes. Do you know how much it costs to scramble two jets? How about the cost of the Coast Guard patrols. Is this fake news?

          • Retired

            You need to take your meds it is showing real bad tonight . Like a good liberal you are you change the subject. His place is the only safe place to meet with people to avoid fake news that you swallow up.

          • bobnstuff

            “You are showing your true colors , that is the only place he can go without the media and folks like you to prevent fake news .”

            Who changed the subject? Maybe it’s you meds that need to be checked.

            You better go take a dump before it comes out of your ears.

          • Bob

            In actuality, he NEVER said “terrorism” when speaking of Sweden. He was referring to a interview done with the director of a documentary about how crime has spiked in the migrant and immigrant communities in Sweden. The interview was on Tucker Carlson’s show earlier that weekend. Only the press has said he was talking terrorism. Please don’t fall into their trap

    • Retired

      Trump is not on vacation down there , he works on the week ends away from the leakers to the media for false news , I guess you are not informed to know that .

      • justinwachin

        The issue is not whether he is working. The story was about planes entering the no-fly zone around his resort.

        As far as false news leakers go, I suspect the Oval Office is guarded and access is limited to his upper level officials. The security around the president is about as good one place as the other. The Oval Office door isn’t a lounge that anyone can wander into when they are looking to waste time.

        • Retired

          Pilots are responsible as to were they can fly , evidently they are not paying attention . There appears to be less fake news when he is in Florida than in WDC. Either you support him or not is the big question ??? You are the one who said social calendar implying he is down there playing just golf .

          • justinwachin

            The area pilots will learn to check the FAA advisories more frequently when they are flying near his resort.

            I don’t know what the president does when he is in Palm Beach. There is a possibility he does play golf when he is there. If so, that’s fine with me.

            For executives the issue isn’t always how much time is spent working but what is accomplished. President Trump came across as a hard worker during his campaign. Considering how much he has accomplished in his first month in office I think he is still working hard.

  • bobnstuff

    If Trump would stay in the White House for the week-ends things would be much simpler for his protection detail. People complained about Obama’s vacations and the cost of them. Trump has already spent in a month one tenth of what Obama spent in eight years.

    • Jerry

      President Trump had a life before being elected as our President! Why does anybody expect him to change his lifestyle? I dont, but yet he had to step away from his business, his boy had to give up his foundation, even tho it has been proven that the money’s he got as donations went to a worthy cause, you folks are so use to the corruption in Washington you don’t know how to act when that is being changed, the snowflakes just can’t seem to get a grip on the changes coming our way. Why don’t you snowflakes sit in a dark closet on week-ends away from any sort of Internet connection and think about all the stupid crap you belive in

      • bobnstuff

        So you approve of our taxes going to pay for Trumps weekend get a ways. When you become President of the United States you should expect some life style changes, it’s part of the job. His foundation was a slush fund that Trump misused and hadn’t put any of his own money in for years. Here is my question, which government service should you give up so Trump can spend his weekends in Florida? Are you willing to pay more in taxes? These are the two choices.

        • Jerry

          OK so then tell me how much did we pay michelle’s, mom to live in the whitehouse? Totally free, meals, free vacations, etc etc, How much did it cost us for her to tag along so she could nanny her grandkids? Free health care? How many millions did Obama give Iran and other countries? Then let’s see President Trump save the taxpayers how much on the new air force one? I say let’s defund planned parent hood, the UN, quit borrowing money to give away, stop paying illegals the earned income credit, and Healthcare plus the other benefits they get, you didn’t complain how Obama pissed our taxpayers money away, let’s change the rule on ex presidents lifetime secret service detail back to what it was before the paranoid Obama changed it, 10 years, if he wants more let him pay it himself, I didn’t hear you complain when hillary lost what 6 billion dollars when she was in the state dept? After all these savings he deserves to have his lifestyle with a few trips to florida, I heard that we don’t get billed for the secret services accommodations, aND we aren’t getting billed for the President’s accommodations either like we got billed when obama went on his golfing trips, grow up man and accept the fact we got a new president

          • bobnstuff

            In fact the President doesn’t get to live totally free in the White House. He has to pay for his families food. Also just how much does it cost to have your mother in law live with you? One trip to Florida cost ten time what Obama’s mother in law cost total. Trump likes to spend money and when it’s belongs to someone else he likes spending it even more. It would be nice if you did some home work before you post about just what the cost of these Florida trips are and just what we pay for. Trump can’t charge the government for things without breaking the law. As far as the “lost” money under Clinton, it was never really lost, it was mistakes in paper work and was resolved. You might want to read the story instead of just the headlines.

          • Jerry

            Yup and that’s about as truthful as if you like your doctor you can keep him, or it will save each customer 2500 per year, or that bengazi was caused from a video, or sniper fire and running for cover, let’s be honest, liberals lie when ever their lips are moving, grandma Obama expects 160k per year at our expense as a retirement amount

          • bobnstuff

            Once again you just read the headline. These statements about the ACA were made based on a bill that never got passed. Also for most Americans it was true. Also I guess you didn’t hear but the person who attacked in Benghazi said that the video did play a part in the attack, it was used as a cover.

            Also the story about Mrs. Obama’s mother getting money was proven to be fake news.

        • Jerry

          So the life style changes you were talking about when applied to Obama it was a huge huge step up from the slums of Chicago southside, and you expect President Trump to change his lifestyle down, and no I don’t mind a raise in taxes after we cut out all the waste first

          • bobnstuff

            You do know you are talking about two Harvard trained lawyers. These are people who worked their way up and understand what the real world is. No silver spoons here. As far as Trump cutting waste, if he does it will be a first for him. He is the king of going over budget on projects. As far as changing your life style down, if living in the peoples house is to much for him he shouldn’t have taken the job.

          • Jerry

            I think they should both ask for refunds

          • bobnstuff

            You do know that Obama was elected President of the United States twice and neither election was even close. That’s in contrast to our two republican presidents, Bush 43 and Trump.

        • CaMaven

          If a dip like Nancy Pelosi could get a 767 to take her to CA every weekend, I don’t see a problem with just sending Trump down to Lago Mar. Getting out of DC provides additional perspective.

          • Retired

            Plus a safe place for him to meet and work with people. No fake news from the inside as the fees are high to belong there and most go for the privacy.

    • CaMaven

      Obama’s absurd trip to India alone cost what Trump will spend in a year cost more than Trump’s weekends will for a whole year. Read the details before you say it was just an official trip.

      • bobnstuff

        Obama’s trip cost less then $100 million or ten months of Trumps trips to Florida, In eight years Obama spent a total of $180 million on travel. Trump has spent a little less then $12 million in his first month.

        • Retired

          You just keep insisting and proving what a LEFT WING NUT YOU ARE

          • bobnstuff

            You like having your tax money wasted. You complained about Obama’s play golf, he played 38 times in the last three years, Trump has played 6 rounds in the last month. Are you blind to just what’s happening? Trump has 112 appointments to make but he has time for golf.

          • Retired

            Typical Ignorant Liberal , Trump has met with people every weekend while in Florida . That is the only place where it is safe without the media and people like you spreading false news . Obama went all over giving fund raising speeches and golfing on your dime and you had no problem , now the US has a working President and all you can think of is bitching like a little kid . Appointments are being held up by your FRIEND Schumer and Pelosi . Trump is ready to go but those two clowns are holding things up and you support it.

          • bobnstuff

            You do know that the White House is one of the most secure buildings in the country. It was designed to impress people. Other presidents had no problems meeting people their.

            Trump has 112 jobs to fill but he’s out playing golf and far away from most of the little staff he has. The presidency isn’t the kind of job you can phone in.

            You don’t think Obama did every bit as much work on the links as Trump but the right still complained about it. Tell me about the rally this past weekend, it was pure politics.

          • Retired

            Yup Obama was sure working with his Hollywood gays on the golf coarse some even had topless servants on various holes ?? You Must have brown eyes because you are so full of shitsky that it is pathetic.

    • goldie

      He’s not even taking a salary. Stow it.

      • bobnstuff

        That won’t even pay the cost of one trip to Florida. One trip costs around $4 million.

  • ArcticGrayling

    When are we going to hear the snowflakes protest that use of taxpayer’s money?

  • mort_f

    We have gotten paranoid. Same thing happened near Chicago for one of Obama’s visits.

    • Jerry

      With good reason as the snowflakes are going crazy with President Trump in charge, and many have already threatened his assassination! Obama was a paranoid little fake, he changed the rules for secret service protection of former presidents from 10 years to the restimate of their lifes, how many millions is that going to cost? I really think President Trump should change it back, if Obama wants lifetime protection detail, he can write the checks
