Obama´s back: Former president
to hold Chicago event on Monday

Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/21/2017 12:26:56 PM

Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a

Comments:
Oh joy the messiah returns to the public eye. Gag me. The event won´t be explicitly political?? Are you freaking kidding me? Thanks Dovere for insulting your readers. I´m so sick of these hacks that make such outrageous, inconceivable statements. Obama is a radical leftist political animal and will never be anything else. It just takes your breath away how pathetically stupid that is. Does civic engagement include riots and anarchy? It sure does when it involves the Democrats.

Like the old book about uses for a dead cat, there are more than 101 reasons to stay out of Chicago. And to think, that was our playground back in the mid-1960´s.

Note the qualifier "explicitly" before political.

Note that our former Emperor had never stopped being an Alinsky style "community organizer" - even during his time in the WH.

Note that he was a lecturer, and not a professor, at the Univ. of Chicago.

Note that some media outlets still refer to him as President, and not former-President.

To these libs at Politico and elsewhere, NOvember 8th, 2016 never really happened. (It was all a Putin trick.) They are just setting themselves up for another dose of reality on NOvember 6th, 2018.

Two whoppers in one sentence. Congratulations to the author and Politico.

How does one "represent" a district when consistently voting ´Present´ on matters of legislation? Or how about offering up nothing of substance in six years in the Illinois Senate?
And no, Mr. Author and Politico, Obama was never a professor, a fact that has been well known for many years, and yet you tools continue to support the lie.

If Obambi really wanted to make a difference in Chicago, He would host and do the ribbon cutting at the grand opening of the City of Chicago DriveBy Shooting Range. If the gang bangers got some simulation real target practice, perhaps the carnage in Chicago every weekend could be red end. If gang bangers could learn to shoot better out of moving cars on crappy streets, think of all the innocents slaughter today while sitting on their front porch or playing in the public hosing open areas would be spared. It really would be one of the most effective prevention programs the City could implement and think, it is a liberal nirvana as it would save women and children first.

MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid couldn’t resist criticizing House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s conservative views on marriage, health care and gun rights just days after he was seriously injured by a gunman who may have been targeting Republicans for their political beliefs. “And a lot of people at least in my Twitter timeline — and it’s a delicate thing, because obviously everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping he recovers — but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Ms. Reid said Saturday on “AM Joy.” She pointed to Mr.

Local leaders in and around Madison, Wisconsin are seeking to rename the main county government building after former President Barack Obama — “the JFK of our generation.” The seven-story building is currently called the City-County Building. It’s a gray, soul-crushing, Brutalist slab of concrete. Inside the dreary, Soviet apartment-style exterior walls — originally erected in 1956 — are administrative offices and a jail. “Barack Obama was the JFK of our generation,” County Executive Joe Parisi said on Thursday, according to The Capital Times, a Madison newspaper. “He deserves to be honored, and he deserves to be recognized, not only for his accomplishments, but

President Trump is poaching from House Republicans for his top bank regulator.

Clinger would first be nominated to be a member of the FDIC, and then to replace current chairman, Martin Gruenberg, when his five-year term runs out in November.

Seven sailors are missing after the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a merchant vessel just southwest of Yokosuka, Japan, according to Japan´s NHK news network. The Fitzgerald´s crew is fighting to save the ship, according to three sources with knowledge of internal reports. The commanding officer was incapacitated in the accident and the executive officer is in command. The Fitzgerald suffered extensive damage beneath the waterline. Initial reports suggested that Auxiliary Machine Room 1 and two crew berthings were completely flooded. Because the collision occurred around 2:30 a.m., most crew members not standing watch would be in the berthing.

Under no circumstances should a US Navy vessel possibly be damaged by a container ship at sea. Multiple systems exist to prevent this. Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder.

WASHINGTON – Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday introduced legislation that would automatically register voters who transmit information to state and federal agencies, potentially adding 50 million new voters around the country. In introducing the legislation on the House Floor, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) discussed Shelby County v. Holder, a 2013 Supreme Court decision that struck down certain aspects of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and eliminated the need for nine states to seek federal approval for altering voting laws. Central to the decision was the debate over racial discrimination through polling laws. Controversial voting laws in Texas and South Carolina went into effect

California´s Dianne Feinstein turns 84 on Thursday and is displaying signs that she´s headed for a re-election campaign, not a retirement party. While the Democrat has been coy when asked about seeking a fifth full term next year, her political committee, unambiguously titled Feinstein for Senate 2018, raised more than $650,000 in the first three months of this year in a cue she is looking ahead. Feinstein plays a marquee role for Democrats on Capitol Hill, where she has queried Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director James Comey

MONTPELIER, Vt. — Scores of dairy farm workers and activists marched Saturday on a Ben & Jerry´s factory to push for better pay and living conditions on farms that provide milk for the ice cream maker that takes pride in its social activism. Protesters said Ben & Jerry´s agreed two years ago to participate in the so-called Milk with Dignity program, but the company and worker representatives have yet to reach an agreement. "We can´t wait any more. We are going to pressure them and see what happens," said Victor Diaz, a Mexican immigrant now working on a farm in Vergennes.
