    Exclamation Obama buying $15 million Martha's Vineyard mansion on 29 acres

    Used to be those homes were built and bought by whaling captains and so forth.

    You know, productive people, not members of the parasite class.

    How do you manage such a purchase as a civil servant?

    And then these people have the gall to lecture me about my woodstove's and old truck's "environmental footprint".

    $#@!ing hypocrites.




    Obama Family Purchasing Swanky Martha’s Vineyards Mansion

    Alicia Luke AUGUST 22, 2019



    The Obama’s are reportedly purchasing 29 beachfront acres, 7 bedrooms, just shy of 6,900 square feet, $14.85 million mansion in Martha’s Vineyard.
    The home is currently owned by Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck. The Martha’s Vineyard estate was previously listed for $22 million, but the Obamas are paying less than the current listing price according to “multiple island sources.”

    The Obama’s were flat broke before he ran for president and even having his credit card even declined. They are such hypocrites. They whine about being oppressed while owning an $8 million mansion in Washington, D.C. and now purchasing a $15 Million home in Martha’s Vineyard, all the while being surrounded by heavily-armed bodyguards 24/7 while whining about guns.

    Become a politician, get rich, buy a few mansions. It's the American dream.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Since it is beach front he obviously doesn't believe in the "global warming seas rising" bull$#@!. Why would you invest $15 million in property that is going to be underwater in 10 yrs.?

    Funny....

    Obamas Strike Blow for Economic Justice, Donate Millions in Exchange for Massive Beachfront Estate
    Former president conquers 'wealth anxiety'

    Celebrity authors Barack and Michelle Obama are striking a blow for social, economic, and climate justice, vowing to donate an undisclosed eight-figure sum to Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck in exchange for his massive beachfront estate on Martha's Vineyard, the luxury island vacation spot popular with Northeastern elites, boat-shoed bon vivants, and other rich freaks who use "summer" as a verb and donate to Pete Buttigieg.

    The 29-acre property, which includes a 7,000-square-foot main house with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and two guest wings, is listed at $14.85 million—well within the Obamas' price range after signing a "high eight-figure" production deal with Netflix, in addition to a joint book deal reportedly worth $65 million. There's also an outdoor pool and fireplace, balcony jacuzzi, chef's kitchen, and a private boathouse.

    The former president, who once scolded Wall Street executives by saying, "I do think at a certain point you've made enough money," is potentially suffering from wealth anxiety, which could explain why he has decided to give so much money to such a worthy cause.

    The purchase has not yet been finalized, but barring any unforeseen setbacks, the Obamas will soon become the proud owners of their third mansion, in addition to properties in Chicago and Washington, D.C. "There's only so big a house you can have," Barack Obama said in 2018.

    Obama once claimed his election marked "the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow." The decision to buy a property so close to the water is perhaps a subtle vote of confidence in President Donald Trump's efforts to combat climate change.

    Lol this is the same guy who said in a speech back in 2010 that he thinks at some point people have made enough money. Obviously he didn't consider himself into that equation.

    Martha’s Vineyard Home Proves Obama Knows Global Warming’s a Hoax

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...warmings-hoax/

    JOHN NOLTE 24 Aug 2019

    Barack and Michelle Obama are proving with the purchase of a $15 million home on Martha’s Vineyard that they know Global Warming is a hoax.
    Do you want to know the very last thing a true believer in Global Warming would ever do…?

    Move to an island and invest $15 million in a home with a — no joke — ocean view. But…

    According to various news reports, Barry and Michelle are doing exactly that, and I do mean exactly that…

    Here’s a photo of the estate, all 7,000 square feet of the mansion and the surrounding property… You see all that blue stuff off to the right…? That’s the Atlantic Ocean, y’all…

    Now, some might see an awful lot of hypocrisy in a Global Warming believer like Obama purchasing a massive estate that will create an equally massive carbon footprint.

    Fair enough.

    But that only proves Barry’s a hypocrite, not that he’s a Global Warming Denier.

    Investing some $15 million to live on an island home that sits right on the Atlantic Ocean…? You want to know what this is… That is not just the actions of a hypocrite; what we have here is a full-blown Global Warming Denier, a Climate Denier, someone who is so sure the sea levels will never rise, he’s backing up that certainty with $15 million.

    Hey, who said this…?

    No nation, however large or small, wealthy or poor, can escape the impact of climate change. Rising sea levels threaten every coastline. More powerful storms and floods threaten every continent.

    Barry said that about ten years before he spent $15 million for a home on … the coastline.

    Hey, who said this…?

    The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear. Sea levels are rising. Coastlines are shrinking.

    Barry said that about ten years before he spent $15 million for a home on … the coastline.

    Hey, who said this…?

    [W]e’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods.

    Barry said that about seven years before he spent $15 million for a home on … the ocean.

    The Obamas are literally investing $15 million in the fact that Global Warming is a hoax.

    What’s more, he is only 58 years old. He’s got at least another 25 to 30 years.

    Regardless of his age, if Global Warming were real, this would be a terrible investment under any circumstance. As this dumb 12-year deadline counts down, it should be property along the coastlines that lose the most value, while inland property rates skyrocket due to overcrowding by leftists fleeing to safety… right?

    But leftists are not leaving the coast, and the value of coastline property continues to rise.

    If you want to know what people truly believe, don’t listen to what they say they believe… No, you have to watch what they actually do… And the very same people who are bullying us to give up our cars and beef and grills — because if we don’t, the oceans will rise and destroy the coasts!! — are the very same people living on … the coast.

    Maybe they would rather drown, rather lose everything than live among us deplorables, but there are plenty of blue cities in flyover country… Why don’t these bigots move there?

    Because they know it’s all bull$#@!. And Obama knows it’s bull$#@!. And the media surely know it’s bull$#@! because the media are doing the exact same thing Obama’s doing…

    While far-left CNN dehumanizes anyone who doesn’t believe in Global Warming, the fake news network is moving its primary base of operations from inland Atlanta to right on — again, no joke — the water in Manhattan, the very same Manhattan the media said would be underwater already.

    If Barry and Michelle Obama don’t believe in Global Warming, why should I?

    Why should anyone?

    Looks like it sits on a hill so should be safe from rising oceans.

    Barack and Michelle Obama are proving with the purchase of a $15 million home on Martha’s Vineyard that they know Global Warming is a hoax.

    To be fair, he has many more paid speeches, books and fake Hollywood producer/creator credits ahead of him. He also knows in the event of any catastrophe, his family is safe. So this is not an open and shut case like the author thinks.

    But yes, we all know that Barry knows that man-made Global Warming is a hoax.

    Oh, hell naw. Ever seen a reek rise? Once those glaciers are gone even the crows nest will be ten feet under. I'm told it's gonna happen in ten years. Maybe he bought flood insurance?

    At some point some "investigative" reporter, if there is any such these days, needs to look into book companies. Seems to me that this is where the "payola" comes from. Obama got like $60 million for his upcoming book. Hillary got $15 million, but it seems Simon and Shustler didn't make back the advance.

    You do know what "rising" means, don't you ... ?

    Wonder how the Obama supporters feel about this. Bet they probably think he deserves that mansion.

    Zippy probably doesn't live on the coast, so the concept of wave pileup is beyond comprehension. Yes, it looks like the mansion has been built on some kind of mountain. FEMA still lists it in the 100 year flood zone even before the icebergs melt. No doubt the insurance in paid up so who cares if it flood out. FEMA will come in and pay out.
