Barack Obama Kicks Sand In Faces Of Connecticut Beach Goers

It’s not enough that this president has attended more fundraisers than any politician in American history – now he’s shutting down hundreds of acres of summer time beaches to try and raise yet more campaign dollars from liberal Hollywood and East Coast elites.


A popular Connecticut park and its 234 acres of wetlands, woodlands and beach on Long Island Sound will be shut down all day Monday so that President Obama can use the location as a base for fundraising nearby.

The Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, Connecticut will have to turn away thousands of bathers so that Obama can get to and from his events, including a $35,800 per head bash at the 9,000-square-foot, $8.3-million waterfront estate of movie mogul Harvey Wienstein, according to The Connecticut Post.

…Obama’s travel to Connecticut kicks off another heavy week of fundraising and campaigning that will include a two-day trip to Colorado Wednesday and Thursday.   LINK

    • I wish Harvey W., who by the way, is looking like another bloated satyr, Henry VIII, would just offer Barry an acting gig, well a NEW acting gig, and take him westward to Hollyweird where he belongs.

      You eastcoast libs see how Barry loves you? He’s coming to one of your lovely parks!

      And if that’s not lovin’ you,
      Then all I’ve got to say,
      IS, God didn’t make little green apples
      and it don’t rain in Indianapolis in the summertime

      Oh, wait – it doesn’t rain in Indy in the summer anymore apparently.

    • Obama has a 234 acre range?! That’s just outrageous. I wonder, too, if the Obama campaign will be reimbursing the Connecticut parks dept. for lost revenues — do they charge for admittance to the beaches and woodlands?

      For the up to $34k donations from some 50 people, he has again lost the good will of thousands. The Obama handlers should realize that all of the advertising money in the world will not make up for the elitist image they are projecting.

    • Will the entranced masses of Obama drones defend these delusions of grandeur by King Kardashian as he waves away with his paw the peasants who would like to go to the STATE PARK BEACHES on their vacation? Of course, would be Prince Barry needs CA$H badly, he’s sinking like a mafia witness in the East River after trying on cement shoes.

    • They need that much leeway in order to cart the First Succubus without the wagon wheels of her escort becoming stuck in the sands, or the servants’ legs being broken by the heavy weight as they carry Her Heaviness on their shoulders as in days of olde.

      I’m guessing Weinstein will fetch the gear from from old The Ten Commamdments storehouse for the slaves – er, campaign workers – to wear to brighten up the location and make it fit their pretensions.

      In any case, this particular Pharaoh never looked so nebbish, his princess so chubby.

    • After all, Obama has a Connecticut Social Security #. BO’s just visiting his “native” state’s friends & neighbors who have a fund raiser at a mere $35,800 per plate. If FAT Harvey Weinstein paid HIS FAIR SHARE OF TAXES, WOULD HE LIVE ON AN ESTATE ON LI SOUND? It sounds elitist to me!!!

      Too bad the fundraiser was not planned on Saturday, Sunday or a holiday. Maybe EVEN the Democrats in Connecticut can BEGIN to see clearly that they’re helping to re-elect a snake oil salesman – he’s a genuine FRAUD.

    • Speaking of ∅ campaign drones/slaves. I posted this link to a list full of them and a few libertarians and this teabagger/libertarian (as I have been called on that list – I had admitted to being a TEA Party fan).

      You should have heard the howls. The list owner privately gave me a stern lecture. The list is supposed to be non-partisan and when I posted some anti-Romney stuff to the lists (I’m no fan, but slow is better than fast for now) I was cheered.

      • The Gimpy Fruit, as far as I can tell, is a Protestant, which is to say, wayward, though well-meaning, much as those poor Dems. who still think their party is for the people.

        He has an old post regarding “those Germans,” as he puts it, which, to make a long story short, misunderstands The Blessed Virgin’s life. He mentions Her other children, as if she had given birth to them. She most certainly did not. She may have raised Our Lord’s cousins or something, but The Blessed Virgin Mary is NOT the once-upon-a-time-virgin, or she who was once a virgin. She was, is, and ever shall be, The Blessed Virgin Mary.

        I apologize for stepping up on the soapbox, yet I feel I must If our friend the crippled round red juicy one is wrong about this, well, he may just be a tad off in regards to other matters of state.

    • This is from Ann Barnhardt’s site. She is the courageous commodities broker who closed down her firm after MF Global, saying it was just the tip of the iceberg and that all the markets are completely rigged:

      I tried to tweet this but the website in question, , causes all tweets to go to the home page. Please spread and repost this. It needs to be seen by as many people as possible. Here’s the link:
      Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future

      This isn’t some wild bee-ess from some Alex Jones site. This is the real deal. The author is a retired Colonel currently on staff at Ft. Leavenworth, which is the hub of all flag officer advanced education and indoctrination. Ft. Leavenworth is not called “the Little Pentagon” for nothing.

      The piece is lengthy, but worth the read. It is basically war gaming how the United States military would be deployed to put down a “Tea Party insurgency”. Some choice quotes:

      Under present law, which initially stemmed from bad feelings about Reconstruction, the military’s domestic role is highly circumscribed. In the situation we lay out below, even though the governor refuses to seek federal help to quell the uprising (the usual channel for military assistance), the Constitution allows the president broad leeway in times of insurrection.
      Coupled with a gradual build-up of federal forces in the local area, all covered by the media, the effect of this pressure will compound over time and quite possibly cause doubt about the correctness of the events in Darlington in the minds of its’ citizens and the insurrectionists who control the town…
      The design of this plan to restore the rule of law to Darlington will include information/influence operations designed to present a picture of the federal response and the inevitable defeat of the insurrection.

      Combat units will conduct overt Show of Force operations to remind the insurrectionists they are now facing professional military forces, with all the training and equipment that implies…
      A focus on the humanitarian aspect of the effort will be politically more palatable for the state and local officials. Federal forces continue to tighten the noose as troops seize and secure power and water stations, radio and TV stations, and hospitals.

      and this from the comment thread, which is every bit as interesting as the article itself:

      A note of caution to those who have taken offense to the Tea Party- disenfranchised white males is a reality. The more comments we post on here taking offense to the scenario show the public what shade our professional military truly has. The Black Panthers and Nation of Islam have been marginalized and will never gain traction because of their idiocy. The Tea Party and potential fundamentalist groups who follow it will have the resources to make things caustic.

    • Here’s the link to “small wars journal”“vision”-of-the-future

      They are getting ready. I hope they realize that 1. Our military is composed of some of the most patriotic Americans around. How many will turn on their leaders if they actually pursue this craziness?

      And 2. This country was founded by defeating the largest, most powerful, and professional military power of it’s time.

      Obama is gutting our military right now and it is smaller than ever. he is demanding they pay for their health insurance, and trying to disenfranchise them at the ballot box.

      I like those odds actually…

      • There’s a link at that site to the actual video of Gibbs/Axelrodent interview. It sounds as if Gibbs was actually referring to Romney releasing more tax records, not about BHO’s college transcripts.

        He makes an interesting point, though, when he questions have we ever seen anyone go to such lengths to hide something? Why yes, Gibbs, you moron. We have. I think this is the perfect opportunity to ask tit for tat, so to speak.
        The tax returns in exchange for the college transcripts, how about that?
        Sounds fair to me.

    • Meanwhile, Mittens has declared the mayoral attacks on Chik-Fil-et’s family leadership “not part of my campaign.” Looks like Mitt needs to go to the family doc again: his “low T” is showing up again.

      Either Mittens has reverted to being a wuss, or he needs to fire someone in his campaign. If he can’t speak up against municipal bullying against private enterprise, the threats against the corporation unConstitutional AT BEST, then what will he stand up for?

      Grow a pair, Mitt. Damn.

      Obama’s alter ego, Valerie Jarrett, has a Bermuda bank account according to ABC News -

      …Valerie Jarrett’s financial disclosure form filed May 4 lists a line of credit from a Bermuda insurance company valued between $100,000 and $250,000.

      “This is a letter of credit disclosed in the liability section of the personal financial disclosure form, meaning it is a potential obligation, not an asset,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement. “In fact, a letter of credit is something that you pay for – as you can see from the form there is a fee associated with it. A letter of credit is issued by a financial institution as a guarantee to cover a potential liability, and in this case was obtained by real estate developers in Chicago for properties located in the United States.”… [ABC News]

      Jarrett is part of the most secretive administration that we’ve seen, frankly, since Richard Nixon. The only reason to have these accounts is to shelter your taxes. Americans need to ask themselves: why does an American presidential advisor need a Swiss bank account and secretive investments like that. Americans need to ask themselves: why does an American advisor to the president need a Bermuda bank account and a line of credit and secretive investments like that. I call on her to release her tax returns. It’s disturbing.

      Obviously, I am repeating statements made against Mitt Romney by the Obama campaign bots. Paybacks are a B!$@h.

      Via The Hill

      …Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Mitt Romney to release more than one year of tax returns, following a report that detailed the presumptive GOP nominee’s use of offshore accounts.

      Wasserman Schultz called that report, published in Vanity Fair, “disturbing.” According to the magazine, Romney’s financial advisers formed a corporation in Bermuda, and the article also detailed the former Massachusetts governor’s holdings in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.

      “Americans need to ask themselves, why does an American businessman need a Swiss bank account, and secretive investments like that?” Wasserman Schultz asked on Fox News Sunday.”…

      It wasn’t just Wasserman-Schultz, Gibbs and Axelrod said almost the exact same things against Romney for his investments as they hit the Sunday cable news shows.

    • In the news: fighter jets deployed to protect airspace above a Barry event in CT. Also noted that this was not the first time. Recently, there have been more. Hmmmmm

      Don’t think I’m so concerned about a potential threat. It was probably paparrazi.
