    Former President Barack Obama is on the Vineyard. The 44th president of the United States arrived on Saturday, and is expected to be on-Island for much of August, according to multiple sources. Throughout his presidency, Obama and his family took summer holidays on the Vineyard, and showed a fondness for Chilmark.

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said last week that his defense of President Donald Trump’s constitutional rights led to him being “shunned” by his own friends at a high-end seasonal destination. The famed lawyer lamented the efforts to eject him from his social life at Martha’s Vineyard amid his outspoken criticism of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the alleged collusion with Russia. In an op-ed for The Hill, Dershowitz, a frequent guest on Fox News, said that though he’s politically a liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton in addition to contributing “handsomely” to her campaign, his defense of...

    [Martha's Vineyard] The Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation this week issued a public apology and launched an overhaul of its land management practices following the revelation that large numbers of trees and other plants had been dug up from two of its preserves and used to landscape an exclusive private property on the North Shore. *** The two foundation properties, the Caroline Tuthill Preserve in Edgartown and the Priscilla Hancock Meadow in Chilmark, were left damaged by heavy earth moving equipment brought in by contractors hired to landscape the 30-acre property of Dirk Ziff near Lambert’s Cove in West Tisbury.

    It's no secret that former President Barack Obama and his family love Martha's Vineyard, having vacationed on the idyllic Massachusetts island seven out of the eight summers they were in the White House, as well as this August. And rumors are now flying that they're looking to purchase property in the area.

    Conservatives generally believe that the accumulation and maintenance of wealth is a good thing. We like money, we admire success, and we don’t view those who’ve achieved a significant fortune with contempt. We’re aware that well-funded bank accounts provide employment, stimulate the economy, and keep the country humming along. The left disagrees. If you’re rich, you aren’t paying your fair share. Heck, even if you’re not rich you should be taxed more. To them, the wealthy are like dragons - sleeping on a mountain of ill-gotten gold - lording over the peasants with filthy, probably-stolen, lucre that they couldn’t spend...

    Khawam not only tapped her military connections in her custody battle but also invoked broader contacts as she sought greater access to her son. In emails with her ex-husband, Khawam wrote that Senator Kerry asked about the son and whether he would be coming to Martha's Vineyard in the summer of 2012. She also wrote that Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island invited the son to a summer clambake in the state, and that the son "would greatly appreciate attending this family clambake." Included in the court file is what appears to be a handwritten note from Whitehouse, writing, "I...

    If you were to tune into Deep State Media you would hear their continuing lamentations over Washington D.C. being destroyed by Trump. Interspersed would be breathless coverage of the Summer of Resistance and grumblings about Trump’s 17 day “working vacation” – his “fifth trip in six months” - to his own golf club in Bedminster,  NJ. Their real complaint is that they can’t all go to Martha’s Vineyard for a “17 day working vacation” like they did while covering the The Won. Indeed, the Obamas vacationed for a good part of August on this elite resort island every year they...

    Former President Barack Obama and his family are apparently keeping up their tradition of enjoying summer days on Martha’s Vineyard. According to the Martha’s Vineyard Times, the former first family is returning to the island this weekend and will stay in the town of Chilmark. Ann Crook, general manager of the Martha’s Vineyard Airport, told the newspaper of the Obamas’ visit and said it will not necessitate restrictions on airspace, as was the case when the 44th president was in office.

    OAK BLUFFS (CBS) – A man is accused of going on a very strange crime spree on Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend. Oak Bluffs police say Felix Reagan committed a series of crimes that left a dog painted purple on Saturday afternoon. It all started when officers responded to Firehouse Lane for a report of a stolen motor vehicle that crashed, with the suspect fleeing on foot. About 5 to 10 minutes later, police were called to a Pinewood Lane house that had been broken into. A resident there said they arrived home to find a ground level window forced...

    Hillary Clinton dropped by the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend to pick up more than $1 million in campaign contributions during an elegant party at the summer home of one of her most devoted supporters. Thirty people contributed $50,000 apiece to attend the Saturday night function at the home of Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a wealthy investment manager so committed to Clinton that she couldn’t bring herself to vote for then-Sen. Barack Obama after he defeated her candidate in 2008. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were on the island at the time of the Saturday...

"On a golf course in Martha's Vineyard instead of in Louisiana?," she tweeted, along with a Fox News video flashback of Obama criticizing President Bush in 2008 for his response to Hurricane Katrina.

    Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton is getting ready to celebrate her husband’s 70th birthday this evening on Martha’s Vineyard, according to a Clinton aide speaking to CNN. Obama is also vacationing on the island, although it is unclear whether he and Michelle Obama plan to join the Clintons for the momentous occasion. Clinton’s trip coincides with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s visit to Louisiana to highlight the suffering of local citizens after the state was hit by unprecedented flooding in the area.

    In case you missed it, Louisiana is underwater and currently experiencing the worst natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Before Sandy, the worst natural disaster was Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Thirteen people in Louisiana are dead, thousands are displaced and nearly 90,000 people have registered for federal disaster aid. From the Red Cross: The devastating flooding in Louisiana has forced thousands of people from their homes with just the few things they could take with them. The American Red Cross is there, providing food, shelter and relief supplies to those affected by the largest natural disaster to hit the United...

We rolled up the carpets and everyone boogied down till the sun came up. And while there was no sit-down dinner, don’t worry; there were enough “snacks” to feed all the starving children in America as well as the rest of the world - for a year. Butt as you know, no pictures. The most transparent administration ever is wrapping up their last year the same way they started: no outsiders, no photographers, no press, and no social media...

In the last year of his residency, and for the seventh time in eight years, resident Obama and his family will vacation on Martha’s Vineyard in August. Past vacation itineraries have included almost daily golf outings, trips to the beach, and dinner out with friends. Each time the resident sets out on Island roadways, he will be accompanied by a security contingent that will include State Police and Secret Service. And within the motorcade as it speeds along...
