2550914Washington Examiner:

It's going to be hot tubs, basketball, tennis and golf for the first family this summer, having set plans for a 16-day vacation in Martha's Vineyard, Mass., on a $12 million, 10-acre forested estate on the southwestern corner of the island.

 

Reports from the Bay State indicate that President Obama and his family will vacation August 9-24 at the 8,100-square foot, beachfront home of a Democratic donor that includes a pool, hot tub, basketball and tennis court.

 

It will be new digs for the first family, who have summered on tony Martha's Vineyard every year of Obama's presidency, except in 2012 when he was running for reelection.Scissors-32x32.png

5 months off: Martha's Vineyard break will put Obama over 140 days on vacation

 

When President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer break next month on Martha's Vineyard, Mass., he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home.

 

Obama has been criticized for taking costly and lengthy vacations, especially compared to the short trips most Americans take. The U.S. Travel Association told Secrets that the average American vacation lasts just 3.7 days.

 

But his 141 days out of Washington are far less than the 378 former President George W. Bush took in 57 trips to his Crawford, Texas, ranch at the five-and-a-half-year mark of his presidency, according to figures calculated by CBS White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, the unofficial historian and statistician of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

 

Every White House claims that the president's location doesn't matter much since he always travels with staff and has access to key communications.

Obama, Frittering Away Time on the Frivolous Elite Vacationing in the Time of Ebola

By Judi McLeod August 3, 2014 |

 

In only six days from now the mainstream media will deluge us with the trite eye candy of Obama’s 16-day Martha’s Vineyard vacation

 

Pictures will depict Obama playing the game he likes best after the one called Dismantling the USA, golf; slurping a shaved ice or two with his girls or noshing on the shellfish for which Massachusetts is famous.

 

His motorcade will cause upheaval in the lives of the good people of Martha’s Vineyard—just for show.

As Obama likes to put it: “The bear is loose Scissors-32x32.png

 

What Obama just did before leaving for this vacation should send shock waves throughout the entire world. Before leaving on this holiday, the 44th Commander in Chief of the world’s most powerful country, unleashed a legion of infectious diseases on the U.S. masses, and because air travel is the 21st century’s main transportation, on the innocent and unsuspecting citizens of the world as well.

Welcome to Obama’s America. Come for the welfare. Stay for the outbreak.

 

At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or been caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. by U.S. authorities between January 2014 and July 2014.

 

But that’s not all… http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/71-illegals-from-ebola-countries-caught-sneaking-across-border/
