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.
Democrats Move to Ban Trump Supporters From Joining the Military and Holding Federal Jobs
They’re not stopping with the private sector.
As conservatives and members of the MAGA Movement in general continue to be ostracized by the mainstream media and establishment politicians for the events that unfolded on January 6th, members of congress are moving to further compromise the lives of those who weren’t even involved in the infamous “siege.”
While many Trump supporters have been quietly disposed of by their employers, this has largely been a policy of businesses to choose with whom they want to associate with as privately owned companies. However, according to Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), supporters of Donald Trump should be barred from the public sector as well.
Murphy, who is a member of the House Armed Services Committee, has recently proposed a bill that would prevent members of the ‘Stop the Steal’ movement along with subscribers to ‘QAnon’ from being able to obtain security clearances. Security clearances are a necessity for Americans who wish to join the US Military and also a requirement to obtain a number of federal jobs.
This bill would essentially bar any American that has rallied in support of President Trump post-election or publicly voiced concern about election fraud from being able to hold a job in the Armed Forces or any federal law enforcement agency.
According to an article by the Daily Beast:
The legislation, titled the Security Clearance Improvement Act of 2021, requires applicants looking to obtain or renew their federal security clearances to disclose if they participated in the Jan. 6 rally in Washington—or another “Stop the Steal” event—or if they “knowingly engaged in activities conducted by an organization or movement that spreads conspiracy theories and false information about the U.S. government.
The bill inherently targets Trump supporters and anyone questioning the fraudulent results of the 2020 election or just the government in general. Murphy, a vocal supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, has yet to propose any legislation targeting members of ANTIFA or BLM for their largely unpopular and destructive “Summer of Love” which took the lives of many and resulted in billions of dollars worth of damage.

Similarly, we could also see Stalin-style ideological purges of the US Military under the new Biden Administration and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. Several Democratic Senators, including Dianne Feinstein and Richard Blumenthal, joined together to write a letter to the Department of Defense requesting that a military-wide investigation be carried out through the ranks. The Senators believe the military to be a hub for “white supremacists” and “right wing extremists.”
The letter also requests that the DoD do more to prevent service members from subscribing to conspiracy theories or extremist ideology as a whole. While extremism and white supremacy clearly don’t have a place in the military and haven’t for sometime now, it’s well known that many in the federal government already consider that simply holding conservative values or supporting Donald Trump qualifies as white supremacy. Time will only tell if the requests in this letter are literal or just an attempt to further displace the millions of Americans that voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020.
