He has been having it rough lately. Even had to block his social media accounts due to Pedo Joe’s blunder and mad Americans. Guess people figured out who is really running the show. :)
Really....very interesting...Joe has picked right up where Barry left off....

I expect nothing less from the second worst President ever. He polluted the White House and now he's polluting Martha's Vineyard

Its Emergency Room Jammed, Hospital Feels Impact of Case Spike​

The Martha’s Vineyard Hospital is seeing its largest numbers of Covid and non-Covid related patients since the pandemic began, testing emergency room capacity as cases spike on-Island during the peak of summer.

In a press briefing Wednesday morning, hospital officials also said they would be reaching out to a small number of Islanders who have become eligible for a Covid-19 booster shot, with the federal government soon set to authorize third vaccination shots for the broader public.
Meanwhile, the hospital currently has three patients hospitalized with Covid-19 and a fourth patient under investigation showing Covid-like symptoms. A fifth Covid-positive patient was critically airlifted to Boston last week, hospital officials said during the media briefing Wednesday morning.

According to head of hospital operations and chief nurse Clair Seguin, one of the hospitalized patients is in serious condition, two are in fair condition and one is in good condition. The airlifted patient was in critical condition, Ms. Seguin said.

“This is the highest amount of Covid-positive patient activity that we’ve had since the onset of the pandemic,” Ms. Seguin said at the briefing.

The sharp rise in Covid-19 hospitalizations comes as the Island has seen a dramatic increase in case numbers throughout August. Health officials reported 87 new positive PCR tests last week, as well as a handful of positive over-the-counter Covid tests.

OMG, 5 patients? Overwhelmed?

THREE patients hospitalized with Covid is overwhelmed? That wouldn't overwhelm my local walk in clinic. This kind of hyperbole is exactly how the panic is being perpetuated.

When our glorious peoples leaders started all this Covid panic Krap, they were yapping about clogged hospitals. People took video cameras and filmed those over crowded hospitals over flowing with No customers.

The USA loves lies and false statistics, and over 1/2 the American public loves those nice comfortable lies.

And how do you know this? A lie told confidently and with assurance is still a lie.

You people are the worst and that goes for the birthday boy, too.

You're such a rube. LOL

In other words, you've been debunked, again, your usual response is to throw monkey shit at the passing humans.

You're such a gullible fool.

If you're so good as sussing out liars, how come you still believe Donald Trump?

Obama and his many guests did not wear masks nor did they practice social distancing. According to the leftist narrative it was a super spreader event and must be responsible for the rise in covid cases.

Were the guests all vaccinated? According to the "leftist narrative" - also known as the "CDC Guidlines, if they're all vaccinated, nobody has to wear masks.

Plans for Obama's party were scaled back significantly - from 500+ guests and 200 staff, to 200 guests. The party was held outdoors, and you had to have a negative test to get in.


It is possible to hold social events without ANYONE getting sick. Just ask the Democrats how they've managed to do it for the past year and a half, while every big Republican event results in a super=spreader outbreak.

Start with more Democrats are vaccinated, wear masks, and use best health practices, in their daily lives because they take the virus seriously. None of my friends have gotten sick either and for the same reason. Republicans do nothing to protect themselves because covid is a hoax. Then they wonder why the media doesn't report on Democrats getting sick. The only one of my friends who has gotten covid is a high school teacher in Nebraska, who is fully vaccinated, and just got sick when she returned to the classroom this fall. She has had two bouts of cancer in the past 5 years - finishing her last round of chemo a year ago Christmas and is very high risk. So far she has mild covid - fully vaccinated.

So do you have any real concerns here or is this just more of you bullshit attacks on anything Obama does? Because according to everything that has happened, nobody from Martha's Vineyard got sick at the Obama party.

Unlike Mar-a-lago which had to be closed because everywhere Trump goes, a plague of covid surrounds him.

Small town atmosphere areas can be contact traced by health departments....Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts is another example of type of area where contact tracing of covid can be done.

We were able to do such contact tracing in Maine for quite some time.... till the virus got more infectious with Delta....We knew where the covid clusters were and how they got spread.... As example, there was a certain wedding up in the secluded Maine woods if memory serves me, spread covid to those who attended... who then went back home to the cities/towns they lived in, and one of the guests, worked in a nursing home in that city, who then spread it to residents she cared for and others in her town, and around a dozen or two nursing home residents ended up dying from covid....as an example of something up here with contact tracing of covid.... I believe they were able to trace over 120 Mainers caught covid, from this one woman bringing it back home, in to her town.

Maine also was able to identify who brought covid in to our state...where did our first infection of covid come from.... Turns out it was a traveling salesman, who had New England or the Northeast, as his sales territory, including Maine....and it all started with him..... We've only had 1000 deaths in a year and a half...less than 500 people died in 2020....the full year... since the year anniversary of covid, all heck has broken out and another 500 deaths in the past 6 months!!!

Anyway back on topic, The Vineyard is able to contact trace like us, in Maine.... And they've had no clusters of covid connected to Obama's birthday party. Their guests and caterers were all vaccinated, and all had negative covid tests, before entry. The event was cut from 500 guests down to 200, and it was an outside event in open air tents, and the guests stayed at the Winnetu Ocean resort which is on the South beach side of the Island near Obama's estate, outside of Edgartown, where all the action is for vacationers and the movie JAWS filmed sites....the resort is made up of luxury condos or suites... With outside private entrances to the suites.... Not really a covid spreader type hotel.... ( I've been lucky enough to have stayed there for 5 days on vacation, we shared a 2 bedroom condo/suite with another couple, my best friend and her husband, who are rich and paid the lions share for the stay cuz no way Jose' could Matt and I afford the place!!! )

So this article explains how they know Obama's event, is not the cause of their covid cluster breakouts.

But, Edgartown health officials report no clusters are linked back to former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday bash Aug. 7 in Edgartown.

“So far, we haven’t seen anything that leads to the party on the 7th,” Janet Hathaway, assistant to the health board, told the Herald Monday.

She did share clusters being traced link back to stores, hotels, restaurants, a wedding and more this year. They include:

  • October Wedding – 8 cases
  • Cronig’s Market, Vineyard Haven – 19 cases
  • Bible Study – 11 cases
  • MV Hospital – 5 cases
  • Project Headway preschool – 4 cases
  • King’s Barbershop, Vineyard Haven – 8 cases (2 staff, 2 customers, 4 family members)
  • Shirley’s Hardware, Vineyard Haven – 6 cases (all staff)
  • Barn Bowl and Bistro, Oak Bluffs – 9 cases (6 staff, 3 family members)
  • Cardboard Box, Oak Bluffs – 3 cases (all staff)
  • Alchemy, Edgartown – 15 cases (all staff)
  • Port Hunter, Edgartown – 5 cases – 4 confirmed (PCR+) & 1 probable (OTC+) (all staff)
  • Harborview/Kelley House, Edgartown – 10 cases – 6 confirmed (PCR+) & 4 probable (OTC+) (all staff).
Jay Kuss, general manager at Alchemy Bistro & Bar, told the Herald Monday he closed just a day before the guests for the Obama bash hit the island.

“I had 14 cases, all staff,” he said. “I closed for 10 days, and I’m opening tonight (Monday). It was tough. But one person didn’t feel well and came back with the Delta variant, so I sent every person to get tested.”
