  • Martha’s Vineyard once again allowed to boot out the illegals that we commoners are not

    The snobbery and pseudo-elitism that goes hand-in-hand with the elevated status of a Martha’s Vineyard leftist makes it easy to pity their position instead of envy it, with one exception: their ability to swiftly and decisively eject illegal invaders. On Monday, agents from Boston’s Enforcement and Removal Office (ERO) apprehended and arrested a Brazilian national living in the elite enclave, because he was a “predator” whose presence was “threaten[ing] to residents.” You don’t say. From a press release on the matter: The Brazilian national received multiple criminal convictions for raping a child and was sentenced to 14 years in prison....

    Barack Obama, a semi-retired resident of Martha's Vineyard, posted a lengthy statement on his personal blog spelling out his "thoughts on Israel and Gaza." The blog post was as pompous and long-winded as one might expect from a self-styled intellectual who writes multi-volume memoirs. Reading the whole thing would be a waste of any self-respecting person's time, so here is the abridged version. The Martha's Vineyard resident, who recently lost his personal chef in a tragic paddleboarding accident (or so authorities claim) near his $19 million waterfront estate, had some advice for how Israel should respond to the Hamas terrorist...

    News is now breaking about the mysterious drowning death of Barack Obama's personal chef, Tafari Campbell. Some things do not line up with the official account we were first given about his death.However, before we get inundated with the scandal, I want to find out if he left any favorite recipes behind. Being a big foodie myself I enjoy experimenting with food and revealing my recipes. One example might be air fried garlic turkey wings that I am experimenting with right now. The big task, of course, is eliminating the toughness of those wings.Anyway, does anybody out there know of...
  • (Martha’s Vineyard) Summer Business Season Shows Mixed Results; High-End Shops Fared Best (inflation blamed, no mention of migrants)

    How was commerce on Martha’s Vineyard this summer? If most business owners gave it only a passing grade, those catering to the wealthy had a different take. “The high-end market has been really great,” said Teri Perozzi, owner of Martha’s Vineyard Tours and Transport, in an assessment echoed by a range of hotel managers, shopkeepers and real estate agents interviewed last week by the Gazette. While businesses that rely on day trippers and the middle class said sales were down or flat this summer as vacationers grappled with budgets maxed out on the high costs of food and lodging on...
  • Migrants Return to (Martha’s) Vineyard a Year Later for Heartfelt Reunion

    Last weekend’s events were largely kept under wraps. If asked, attendees donning name tags and color-coded wristbands were told to say they were gathering for a family reunion. It was, in some ways, true. On Sept. 9, almost a year to the day since 49 migrants landed on Martha’s Vineyard unexpectedly, Islanders hosted a quiet reunion for the asylum seekers who have since scattered across the country. There outside St. Andrew’s Parish House, volunteers and migrants reunited over food, music and lawn games — a far cry from the emergency response that had initially brought them together. Although the people...

    Oak Bluffs police are investigating four signs that were placed around town over the weekend in support of a white supremacist group. Police found Patriot Front signs tacked to poles on various roads downtown Sunday morning, Oak Bluffs police chief Jonathan Searle said. The group, which has placed signs and done other attention-grabbing demonstrations in other parts of the country, is one of the most visible white supremacist groups in the U.S., according to the Anti-Defamation League. Three signs, some of which read Strong Families, Strong Nations and America First, were initially found on utility poles, according to Chief Searle....

    Tafari Campbell, the "beloved" chef of former President Barack Obama and his family, died of accidental drowning in a Martha's Vineyard lake, officials confirmed Tuesday. Campbell, 45, was paddleboarding at Edgartown Great Pond on the night of July 23 when he was seen struggling in the water, CBS Boston reported at the time.

Campbell, who was from Dumfries, Virginia, worked in the White House, and the...

    Martha’s Vineyard can’t turn the page on Alan Dershowitz. The Harvard Law professor and longtime island denizen says his works have been banished from the local book fair. “I’ve been canceled,” Dershowitz, 84, told Newsmax host Greta Greta Van Susteren Friday. “My books are not allowed to be sold at the Martha’s Vineyard Chilmark book fair because I defended Donald Trump. Until I defended Donald Trump, my books were featured every year at the book fair.”

    Working in law enforcement is a dangerous job, as is protecting the president of the United States. Being the personal chef to the president might be a close second, as these guys keep dying under eerie circumstances.

    Last week, Barack Obama’s private chef, Tafari Campbell, fell off his paddle board and sank below the surface of Edgartown Great Pond. His drowned body was recovered on Monday morning in the water off the former president’s Martha’s Vineyard estate. Currently, there’s no foul play suspected, and it’s worth noting that Campbell was not wearing a lifejacket. However, certain peculiarities have presented themselves, causing some people to raise questions. For example, the reason for the 911 call that prompted the search was left blank in official logs. The person Campbell was with at the time of the accident remains unidentified,...

    VIDEOFor some reason, "Inside Edition" thinks getting on a paddleboard can be difficult but, as you can see, it is easy peasy. A lot EASIER that putting on a pair of swim fins in the water which is why I put them on at the beach and walk backwards into the water. Still a lot more difficult than the incredibly SIMPLE task of getting on a paddleboard. And for all you conspiracy theorists out there, the Obamas were not even on Martha's Vineyard island at the time of the drowning. ....OOOOPS! There has been a "clarification" on that information.

    I reported that Initial reports claimed that President Obama was the second paddleboarder, so I’m far from surprised when that was the only information the police hid. There is a great chance that President Barrack Obama was the second paddleboarder.— Dom Lucre | Breaker of Narratives (@dom_lucre) July 28, 2023
  • EXCLUSIVE: Malia and Sasha Obama are pictured leaving Martha's Vineyard after death of private chef Tafari Campbell who was 'beloved part of the family'

    Malia and Sasha Obama were spotted flying off of Martha's Vineyard on Tuesday after the tragic death of the family's private chef, Tafari Campbell. Campbell, 45, died on Sunday in an accident on Great Edgartown Pond, a large but calm body of water that the Obamas' luxury pad sits on. It remains unclear how exactly Tafari came to drown. He was a competent swimmer and the water where he was paddle boarding is mostly calm, though neighbors say it can be deceptive. There was another paddle boarder on the water at the time, but they have not yet been identified....
