Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again sunny, warm, still summer like island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this September the Fourth, in the year 2014, another gorgeous day in Hyannis/Hyannis Port, with a nice stretch of beautiful late summer weather coming our way. That’s right folks, September and October offer a completely different view of this amazing landscape with fewer crowds, great weather and good deals, thus giving your person more room to maneuver around the sand bars, whales and ice cream stands…
Of course, not all the world is sunshine and lollipops is it Mr. President? President Barack Obama knows that all too well. Our great 44th President, one whom history books (including this one), will judge him with great affection (at least those with a heart), is in the United Kingdom as we speak, Cardiff, Wales to be specific, meeting with N.A.T.O. (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) leaders to discuss the hot spots affecting not only our various nations’ concerns, but the world’s as a whole. ISIL continues to reign supreme in the horror department, beheading yet another American journalist whose Mother did the best she could to plead for his life, yet, tragically, to no avail… Yes, this and the threat Mother Russia continues to covertly wield against it’s brother Ukraine is palpable, with Russian troops now engaged in the fight in the eastern half of that country boarding Russia. Vladamir Putin, Russia’s defacto “Oligarch in charge for the decade”, continues to evade technology–the TRUTH that is as plane as the satellite images taken just today, proving his deceipt as he quips to an RT newsperson on the payroll, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, “..vat Russian tank? You crazy Americans, always making stuff up, ya? Vat are your thoughts Andrea Merkel? Do you still want to have a cozy winter? Do you still vant all of dat gas we provide? Then drink! Skol!”. Wasn’t it just a few months ago we were complaining about wolves in Sochi?
Well, those wolves are on the move in Eastern Ukraine and it is for that reason, and the ISIL threat to both the U.K. and the U.S., that these men and women are gathered today in the great country of Wales, perhaps the most pristine portion of the United Kingdom. The escalation of more weapons and possible ‘rapid response teams’ via NATO forces, especially protecting the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as well as Poland and Moldavia add to the growing risk in Putin’s game of “Stratego”, albeit this board game is for real. As real people are being killed and displaced by the tens of thousands, all while the brainwashed people of Russia (FOX=RT?) begin to feel the effects of the stronger sanctions being implemented against this former Soviet Union KGB colonel. We shall see what takes place today, and with the world watching the 64,000 dollar question is, “…what is Putin’s end game here; what does he want?”.
Have a great week end folks, and if you are ever up this way, give us a shout, we would love to hear from you. There is never a dull moment on Cape Cod, for everywhere you look is peace and serenity, something this world could use a whole lot more of as the Great Humpback Whales that live here in the summer, swim back to the Caribbean to mate, only to return again next summer to feast on nature’s bounty in the Stellwagon Bank, just off of the coast of Massachusetts. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
