Kerry: Residents of Martha's Vineyard 'Appreciate Everything We're Here to Protect in Terms of the Ocean

Secretary of State John Kerry, hosting an "Our Ocean" conference at the State Department on Thursday, thanked actor Ted Danson (of "Cheers" fame) for introducing him, noting that Danson has "had a passion for the ocean" for years.

"We're proud to call him a part-time resident of Massachusetts," said Kerry, the former senator from Massachusetts. "He has a place out on Martha’s Vineyard, where truly people appreciate everything we’re here to protect in terms of the ocean."

Martha's Vineyard, a summertime destination for many wealthy Northeastern liberals, is where President Obama and his family vacation every summer.

On Thursday, President Obama planned to establish the first national marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean to permanently "protect" 4,913 square miles of underwater canyons and mountains off the coast of New England.

The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument is located 130 miles off the southeast coast of Cape Cod, in the heart of the region's commercial fishing grounds.

Commercial fishing will be banned in the new national monument, to the dismay of New England's remaining fishermen, as will mining and drilling.

As CNSNews.com reported, the two-day "Our Ocean 2016" conference at the State Department is expected to produce a hundred announcements and initiatives, including a ban on "single-use" plastic bags

You've just got to love those wealthy libs. Those fishermen can't disturb the playground of the rich and famous. Why do they think the fishermen have to earn a living? Can't those guys just find another line of work (doing my best Hillary Clinton impression).

Is this the same Massachusetts crowd that voted-down offshore wind-turbines because they're eyesores... and who don't allow refugees to be housed anywhere near the Cape and its money, John?
