EXCLUSIVE: Secret Service agents partied like rock stars on Obamas' Vineyard Vacation

By Jana Winter

MARTHA'S VINEYARD, Mass. – Long before President Obama's security detail was scandalized in Colombia and new revelations emerged last week about the Secret Service, members of the elite team earned an "Animal House" reputation at the blueblood vacation mecca of Martha's Vineyard.

Local residents say wild parties, fights and late-night carousing involving Secret Service members have become commonplace in recent years at the Vineyard, a favorite getaway for the First Family and longtime destination for upper-crust members of the Northeastern political, media and business establishment.

“I expect parties during the summer. People come here to have fun -- they’re on vacation,” said a resident who lives in the East Chop section of Oak Bluffs, near the six-bedroom Victorian mansion whose owners dubbed it the Secret Service’s “party house,” after agents staying in a cluster of adjacent homes converged on it for late-night soirees. “But I didn’t think it’d be Secret Service people here protecting the president.”

Great. Just what America needs. Drunk sexed-up Secret Service agents acting like frat boys protecting the life of the Commander in Cheif.

(Sarc tag or no sarc tag. Can’t decide....)

A burn amo, buen criado...a Spanish saying meaning a good master has good servants.

And a bad master has bad ones.

I can’t believe the secret service was always so out of control and unprofessional.

My earlier quote was from Will Durant in his multivolume work, History of the World.

I apologize for not referencing the source.

WTFN?

It was found Bush's Homeland Security Chief Chertof had people who entered the country illegally, wandering around the inside of his freaking private residence. During war time!!!

Government at all levels has become corrupt to the core.

You haven't noticed?

I really don’t know whether to laugh or cry...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“So. You’re the main agent in charge of protecting the life of the First Family?”

“Yes sir! I report for duty at 0600.”

“Great. Lets go chase some girls, pick a few fights, and get realy wasted first.”

“Might as well. I’m already messed up now.”

You can bet Obummer has NO Conservatives on his detail. We had obnoxious Liberal neighbors. Partying and screaming until all hours. We have moved and will always have a large space buffer between houses from now on.

I’ll be there for a few days starting tomorrow. I doubt me and my eleven golfing buddies will be getting a free pass from the local PD like the SS did.

I saw a report yesterday that noted 229 pages of SS “crimes” for drugs, booze, embezzlement. Hope I am wrong

Just wonder if Barry needs any protection at all. No one in his right mind wants to create another communist martyr.

It’s like dog poop, don’t touch it and it wont smell.

Moose limes won’t touch him either. Even White Nationalists don’t want to create another Federal holiday.

The only reason for security situation is South Side of Shitecago South Side. Oh wait, Barry orgi-nazed that too....

Russians adore the “flexibility”.

Who in the world wants to be near, never mind touch him.

Therefore is the party atmosphere in NKVD, oops , SS.

However 8 year old Cuban children should go hide.

"We would not rent to them again,” she said."

If their boss gets another four years, you won't have to. They will simply seize your property. Count on it.

The arrogance of power. We live in dangerous times.

These are Obama’s handpicked guys. Any guess about the qualities and characteristics Obama was looking for in these men? They are the kind of people who won’t be bothered by Obama’s drug use and homosexuality, so long as they get their party time.

If they end up with another complaining hooker I hear there’s this bridge on Martha’s Vineyard they can use to fix her up real good.

I think there is more to all of these “diss the Secret Service” stories that have come out. Is this some sort of “look they are NOT properly doing their jobs protecting...” The story just doesn’t sit right.

I recently heard Dennis Miller interview Clint Hill, who was one of JFK’s top Secret Service agents, and who has published a book about his experiences, including the assassination in Dallas.

If I recall correctly he was the agent who ran toward the car at the sound of the shooting and attempted to cover the Kennedys as the limo raced away.

Mr. Hill was quiet, modest and dignified, grateful for and nearly reverent about the position of trust he had held.

His words about the Kennedys and Johnsons were respectful, admiring and gracious, nothing but. He clearly took his position back then deeply seriously and conveyed the sense that he still did.

One of the things he mentioned that stuck with me came in response to a question from Miller about the clothes Mr. Hill was wearing that day. Miller allowed as how it was somewhat macabre, but he wondered if Hill’s bloodstained clothes had been preserved, by the Smithsonian, say, or by Hill himself.

Mr. Hill said that the idea of the historical value of the clothes had never come up. Everything happened so quickly, and was so grim, and Mr. Hill and the other agents just did the things they had to as they arose.

But he did say he had thrown away his jacket and his shirt, I believe, because they were so bloody, and he didn’t want them in his possession anymore anyway.

And he mentioned that this had caused him to have to run out and buy a new jacket—he traveled with one pair of pants, one jacket, but two shirts...thus he didn’t have to buy a new shirt, and he was able to clean his slacks passably well.

But he said that purchasing a new jacket had set him back a bit, budget-wise.

“That’s how things were in those days,” he said. “We didn’t have much. But we got by with what we had.”

How far we have fallen.

Thanks. That was a good reminder of the severity of the problems we have today. It wasn’t always this way and it doesn’t have to be this way.

IOW: We, the liberal locals, put up with all of this pre-the media break of the South American story...

...we as liberals kept our mouths shut all this time 'bout Obama's Not-so-Secret-being-'serviced'...

But...I guess now that it's out and we're being questioned by the MSM...

Yes, a fish rots from the head. The only thing wrong with any organization is its leadership.

To paraphrase, "There are no bad regiments, only bad regimental commanders."

The Obama dictatorship is a rotting fish.
