Hypocrite: President Obama Set to Buy $15 Million Martha’s Vineyard Mansion

The former President’s positions on economic inequality don’t seem to have been a factor in his purchase of a lavish mansion.

Barack and Michelle Obama are moving into one of the nation’s most exclusive and wealthy neighborhoods, having arranged to purchase a seven-bedroom property in Martha’s Vineyard for $14.85 million.

Pictures of the Massachusetts palace reveal it’s an estate most Americans could only ever dream of visiting, let alone owning. The property features a private beach with a boathouse, and is currently owned by Boston Celtics ‘governor‘ Wys Grousbeck.

The Obamas have resided in a comfortable position among the nation’s economic elite for years, but it’ll become increasingly difficult for the former President to be taken seriously on the topic of economic inequality after squandering almost $15 million on an elaborate mansion.

The Martha’s Vineyard palace will be the Obama’s second mansion, having secured a $8+ million house in Washington D.C’s ritzy Kalmorama neighborhood in 2017.

Obama made economic inequality a major theme in his 2008 and 2012 campaigns, rhetoric that appears hollow and empty, with the President having appeared to have made massive personal and financial gains as a result of his public service.

President Obama called income inequality the defining challenge of the era in 2013. Yet he accomplished little to combat declining economic prospects for many Americans, and some of his supporters on the progressive left have been left feeling swindled by a man who offered little more than ‘inspirational’ but ultimately empty rhetoric.

President Donald Trump is certainly more wealthy than Obama ever will be, but it’s worth noting that Trump’s net worth is derived from a company that has gainfully employed countless American contractors and employees. Unlike Obama, his presence among the wealthiest group of Americans is the product of a private sector business, as opposed to benefits indirectly obtained from a government job.

Obama’s path to the wealthiest segment of American society appears to have been primarily fueled by his expensively-funded Obama Foundation, that has drawn comparisons to the notoriously corrupt Clinton Foundation in recent years. The Obama Foundation raked in $232 million from private donors- who doubtlessly wanted access to the former President- in 2017.

College Republicans Executive Director Condemning America First Chapters is a Longtime Never-Trumper

Why are these people in leadership positions in the GOP?

Published

An executive director of the College Republican National Committee who has taken to condemning America First chapters in the light of a letter from the chapter presidents calling upon President Donald Trump to end the H-1B and OPT cheap labor programs has a lengthy track record of opposing Trump, including taking a stringent ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 presidential election.

CRNC Executive Director Benjamin Rajadurai slighted the College Republican chapters that signed the letter calling for an immigration freeze on Friday tweet, falsely claiming that only seven chapters signed the missive. Chapter representatives from more than twenty CR organizations across the country signed the letter to President Trump calling for the President to end the worker visa programs.

Rajadurai appears keen to dismiss the activism of the chapters, despite considerable support for their vision of immigration restriction across broad demographics of Americans. However, it appears he has a very tenuous claim on credibility when it comes to conservative policy, considering the CRNC executive took a strong ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 election. Some of Rajadurai’s tweets indicate he was resolute in opposing Trump at the time:

The Massachusetts man apparently was a Jeb! supporter. Why is he even serving as a Republican Party official if he sees the Republican President as an ‘idiot?’

He saw Donald Trump as ‘racist’ at the time.

He saw Trump’s nomination as a great disappointment.

College Republicans and conservatives across the country expressed great disappointment to Big League Politics when learning that a national CRNC executive is a stringent Never Trumper who steadfastly opposes the conservative ideals they seek to promote.

Christian Secor of America First Bruins expressed disappointment with the alignment of CRNC national leadership.

I was always aware that there were problems in the GOP but I never could have imagined to what extent the Republican Party was selling out the American people. Conservative students from all over America are sick and tired of the way the so called “conservative” movement has been ran and, thankfully, the American people are ready for true conservatism, populism, and tradition, with young people leading the charge.” Rajadurai has endorsed an attempt to de-recognize and replace the prevailing California College Republicans federation with an establishment group.

The spirit of the Republican constituency was overwhelmingly America First, and Never Trumpers were left behind. College Republicans are increasingly having their nationalistic brand of conservatism stifled by these very same Never Trumpers at the CRNC,” said Eoan Harrison of the Santa Clara University CR’s.

Marshall Whinney, of the Bull Moose Party at Penn State, described what he had seen as pervasive Never Trump influence throughout national CRNC institutions.

Our organization came into being after our College Republicans held a secret vote against endorsing Trump in 2016 while classes were not yet in session. Our interactions with like-minded individuals across the country have revealed an alarmingly consistent pattern of fraud being used to keep Never Trumpers in office at many Republican student organizations.

Republicans striving to implement the Make America Great Again agenda that President Donald Trump campaigned and won upon have no choice but the question the legitimacy of official Republican Party institutions that appear to have little to no regard for the President himself.
