Former President Barack Obama announced Wednesday morning that the Obama Foundation will hold a two-day "immersive event" in Chicago featuring hundreds of leaders from around the world later this year. The Obama Foundation Summit is being billed as an event to "exchange ideas, explore creative solutions to common problems, and experience civic art, technology, and music from around the world." The foundation tweeted out the announcement with a short one-minute clip and a link to more details.

Comments: Triple mega barf alert! Whatever you do don´t watch the video of that pathetic, lisping radical hack. I don´t know what possessed me to do so and could only make it through about a minute of his bilge. Why is it necessary for people from all over the world to attend? I guess he´s following the Hillary Clinton school of how to get donations from all over the world. The question is what can he possibly offer them now that he is out of power.
Well well well, I guess Obama learned from The Clintons. You set up a "foundation" and in a year or so, you´re a multi-millionaire! You get donors from all over the world who will hand over Thousands or Millions and expect you to use your "connections" to get them what they´re asking for! Trump will never be able to Drain the Swamp! It´s too ingrained for anyone to touch it!
If Obama´s brain were propotionate in size to his ego, he would be as smart as Hillary thinks she is. On the other hand, if his ego were proportionate in size to his brain, he would apologize daily to the American people.
Someone needs to make sure photos and names are taken of every person participating and the watch transfer of money. Nice of Barry to hand us an updated enemies list. All his post-white House traveling....setting up the payoff accounts..

The FBI has arrested 10 men, including several assistant college basketball coaches and an Adidas representative involved in an alleged corruption scheme. Oklahoma State´s Lamont Evans, Emanuel Richardson of Arizona, Tony Bland of USC, and Auburn University´s Chuck Person – a former NBA player – are the four coaches charged in the corruption scheme, according to court documents. According to acting U.S. attorney in Manhattan Jim Koon, the investigation was launched in 2015 and focuses on ´the criminal influence of money on coaches and student-athletes who participate in intercollegiate basketball governed by the N.C.A.A.´ Specifically, two schemes were investigated: one in which
"You know, nothing inhibits recovery from cancer like stress. I think Arizona could help him and us. Recall him. Let him, you know, fight successfully this terrible cancer. And let´s get somebody in here that will keep the word he gave last year," Gohmert said on "Fox and Friends" Monday. McCain this year voted against an Obamacare repeal bill and cost Senate Republicans the ability to pass legislation after seven years of promising to overturn it. On Friday he announced he is opposed to a new bill to reform the Affordable Care Act. Fox News host Steve Doocy said McCain
Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday that it would allow women to drive, ending a longstanding policy that has become a global symbol of the repression of women in the ultraconservative kingdom. The change, which will take effect in June of next year, was announced on state television and in a simultaneous media event in Washington. The decision highlights the damage that the no-driving policy has done to the kingdom’s international reputation and its hopes for a public relations benefit from the reform. Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, is a Muslim monarchy ruled according to Shariah law. Saudi officials and
President Trump doubled down Tuesday on his criticism of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, calling the protests “disgraceful” and blatantly disrespectful to veterans who fought for flag and country. “I don’t think you can disrespect our country, our flag, our national anthem,” Trump said at a Rose Garden press conference. The president, in response to criticism in the media, insisted he was not preoccupied with the controversy – and is focusing instead on the federal government’s hurricane response in the Caribbean. But explaining his decision to speak out on the anthem protests, Trump cited all those who have

John McCain revealed his doctors gave him a ´very poor prognosis´ when he first found out about the rare and aggressive brain cancer that he continues to battle. The Arizona senator said his doctors told him at the time that his condition was ´very, very serious´. ´So I just said, "I understand." Now we´re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can. And at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived,´ McCain said during an interview on 60 Minutes, that aired Sunday night. McCain underwent surgery in July
The entire Pittsburgh Steelers team remained in the locker room during the national anthem, with the exception of one player: Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva, who plays offensive tackle for the Steelers. While the rest of his teammates remained in the locker room, Villanueva stood in the tunnel holding his helmet in his left hand and holding his right hand over his heart as the anthem played.

The Dallas Cowboys, together with team owner Jerry Jones, take a collective knee at the start of the Monday Night Football game to display their unity with… well, something probably. Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein. Never underestimate the inability of any business organization to inoculate itself with idiot resistant policies once they enter the arena of identity politics.
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took a knee on the floor of the House tonight during a special order by the Congressional Black Caucus focused on rooting out racism and defending the First Amendment. "Someone had the lack of judgment to provoke the situation and call their mothers a name," Jackson Lee said of President Trump using "son of a bi*ch" last week to refer to NFL players who knelt during the National Anthem in protest of racial injustice. "I refuse to accept that as a standard of leadership for the highest office in the world -- and even if
CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,
At a Friday rally in Alabama, President Donald Trump criticized football players who protest during the national anthem: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b-tch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ (Snip)Here are five reasons the NFL anthem protests are not going as well as the media would like to think. 1. Vague And Unclear Protest Goals One of the keys to a good protest is to have a clear goal. If the discussions on Sunday were any indication, nobody is entirely clear
A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing. The crowd, which had booed as the visiting C
