Check Out Obama´s Multimillion-
Dollar Martha´s Vineyard Vacation Pad

ABC News, by Erin Dooley and Benjamin Siegel

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/12/2014 8:41:59 PM

The commander-in-chief will be beach bummin’ it in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass, this summer, and the home he is reportedly renting out looks amazing. President Obama and the first lady are planning a two-week vacation at a seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in Chilmark, the Martha’s Vineyard Times reports. The first family will travel to the island from Aug. 9 to Aug. 24, making the 15-day getaway the longest summer vacation of Obama’s presidency. While the location of their vacation home was supposed to be under wraps, neighbors confirmed to the local newspaper that the Obamas will be staying at a luxurious home

Comments:
As Mark Steyn may say, their Ceaucescu´s-on-the-Balcony moment will arrive some day. And the adoring, manufactured crowds will be replaced with a citizenry demanding appropriate judgment.

It´s the longest vacation he has taken....I thought since the amateur clown entered the WH he has been on a permanent vacation. Unless golf, partying, apologizing around the world, hanging out on talk shows, smooching in Hollywood, oh, the most important, reading of his teleprompter counts as work! Especially since he does not understand a word he is reading, nor what he is signing when it is not done by automatic pen.
Zero, we will pay for a long, permanent vacation, just resign!

Having lived in Romania for 3 years under the Ceaucescus, I can tell you that they got off easy facing a firing squad. The military should have tossed them to the crowds in Bucharest and let the people inflict their own punishment by tearing them limb from limb. They deserved nothing less.

The Vineyard is a small island and the season for fun there is short.

So, for two weeks of that brief time life for islanders and vacationers will be completely wrecked. And I´d venture 96% of all of them voted for the trash on wheels they´d normally shun like the plague.

Hilarious.

Some rightwing extremist critics accuse Dear Leader Barack Hussein of loafing, watching TV and playing golf on a never-ending stream of extravagant vacations, all while dire crises and emergencies demand his non-existent attention. But what the critics don´t realize is that even while on his multimillion-dollar breaks from being an actual president, he is still intensely busy caring about helping people. This deep caring of Dear Leader Barack Hussein is what completes us as people. When he cares, our lives have meaning.

Sincerely,
The loathsome MSM

Ferguson, Missouri -- The Ferguson, Missouri, police officer who killed Michael Brown says the teenager rushed at him full speed in the moments before the shooting, according to an account phoned into a St. Louis radio station and confirmed as accurate by a source with detailed knowledge of the investigation. According to the account on KTFK, phoned in by a woman who identified herself as "Josie," the altercation began after Officer Darren Wilson rolled down his window to tell Brown and a friend to stop walking in the street.

Politics, wrote the political scientist Harold Lasswell in 1936, is about “who gets what, when, and how.” If you want to understand the racial power disparities we’ve seen in Ferguson, Mo., understand that it’s not only about black and white. It’s about green. (Snip) Ferguson’s demographics have shifted rapidly: in 1990, it was 74 percent white and 25 percent black; in 2000, 52 percent black and 45 percent white; by 2010, 67 percent black and 29 percent white. The region’s fragmentation isn’t limited to the odd case of a city shedding its county. St. Louis County contains 90 municipalities, most

FERGUSON, Mo. – As the remains of Michael Brown have been turned over to his family, several have offered and raised funding to help with the funeral arrangements. More than 2,900 people have donated to the Michael Brown Memorial Fund, which was established by Benjamin Crump, family attorney for Brown´s parents, on GoFundMe.

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member? The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor. Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh."

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen. America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - Another 130 U.S. troops arrived in Iraq on Tuesday on what the Pentagon described as a temporary mission to assess the scope of the humanitarian crisis facing thousands of displaced Iraqi civilians trapped on Sinjar Mountain and evaluate options for getting them out to safety. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced the deployment in remarks to Marines at this Southern California base on the final stop of a weeklong, around-the-world trip that also took him to India, Germany and Australia. "This is not a combat boots on the ground kind of operation," Hagel said. "We´re not going back

Islamic militant forces in northern Iraq appear to be shifting tactics in the face of the newly launched U.S. airstrike campaign, Defense officials say, posing a new challenge to the Obama administration as it seeks to at least slow the terrorists’ advances. According to officials, until now the Islamic State (IS) was behaving like a well-organized army, moving with strategic intent and pursuing military objectives. Now, officials are seeing at least a partial shift to classic insurgency tactics, as militants begin to blend in among the population, making targeting more difficult. “One of the things that we have seen with

FERGUSON, Mo.- The Rev. Al Sharpton says the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old black man by a St. Louis-area police officer is “very disturbing,” and the civil-rights leader is planning a visit to that suburb to make that known. Sharpton says he’s spoken with a grandfather of Michael Brown and plans to meet with the family in person Monday night or Tuesday in Ferguson. That’s where St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the shooting happened Saturday afternoon after an officer scuffled with one of two men. Brown was shot multiple times and died, though the investigation continues.

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

One person was shot and seven people arrested early this morning as police used smoke and tear gas to impose a curfew following the killing of an unarmed black teenager. Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States.
