Obama in Chicago Monday for first
post-presidential appearance

Chicago Sun-Times (IL), by Lynn Sweet

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 1:06:52 PM

Former President Barack Obama will make his first post-presidential public appearance on Monday, heading to the University of Chicago to discuss civic engagement and community organizing. Obama’s talk at the Logan Center for the Arts, 915 E 60th St., at 11 a.m. Chicago time will be a “conversation,” as he is flanked by six younger activists — from Kenwood Academy High School to college students and a bit older, Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis told the Chicago Sun-Times. This event is part of Obama’s commitment to “engage the next generation of leaders,” Lewis said. It’s an invitation-only audience event, with many

I think it is time for Trump to start monitoring Obama for anti-American activities.

I heard he is also meddling in French elections. (just like he is accusing Russia of doing in our elections.)

At the risk of tooting my own horn, I called him The Student Council President in 2008 or ´09.

Most of us probably remember the type - intolerable suckups to principals and teachers who, inexplicably, ate it up.

The Eddie Haskell types would hold meetings, seminars, speeches and retreats on ´leadership´ despite never leading anything or, more often, being elected to offices nobody else wanted and assuming it gave them special status.

Obama and his ilk never stop talking about leadership, vision, planning, oversight, etc. but that´s all it is - talk.

It´s a worse cult than Scientology.

Interesting that his audience will be by invitation only.

Conservatives are not his types of black-masked, rock throwing, fire-bomb tossing ´activists´ he has attempted to justify in the past so most likely he will be allowed to speak without incident.

While he is engaging his "next generation of leaders", wonder if he will be encouraging them to defend both progressive and conservative campus ´free speech´ using Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter as examples.

The Congressional race between Repblican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff took place on Tuesday. The race in Georgia’s 6th district is the most expensive House race in US history. More than $50 million was spent on the race to replace Rep. Tom Price in the US House. Jon Osoff, the liberal hope for Georgia, has nine times as many donors from California as from Georgia where he is running. But it wasn’t enough. Republican Karen Handel defeated Ossoff by nearly 5%.

Republican Ralph Norman has won the special election to fill the vacated seat for South Carolina´s Fifth Congressional District. Norman defeated Democrat Archie Parnell for the seat vacated by current Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, the Associated Press reports. With all precincts reporting, according to the New York Times, Norman won by 51.1 percent to 47.9 percent, a 3.2 percent margin of victory.

Democrat Jon Ossoff conceded the Georgia special election runoff to Republican Karen Handel Tuesday night, even as he argued that "fight goes on" for Democrats even after their latest election defeat. "This small community in Georgia, which has become the epicenter of politics — sometimes to my chagrin — for months now, it´s had nothing to do with me, it never has," Ossoff told the crowd at his campaign´s Atlanta watch party, soon after news outlets declared Handel the winner of the pivotal special election.

President Obama’s claim that he confronted President Vladimir Putin and shut down Russian hacking efforts late in the 2016 election campaign will face sharp scrutiny when Jeh Johnson, Mr. Obama’s homeland security chief, faces lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. The Obama administration’s record on fighting hacking efforts and complaints from state election officials over an eleventh-hour regulation to tie state election systems to federal security systems will get a major airing before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, one of a number of panels investigating Russian efforts to interfere in the election. The effectiveness of the Obama administration’s

The Republican group aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan had a strategy to keep Georgia´s 6th Congressional District from slipping away: make the contest a referendum on Nancy Pelosi. Voters in the traditionally conservative seat had resisted President Trump, and were slow to embrace Republican nominee Karen Handel in the special election to replace Tom Price, now Health and Human Services secretary. But Congressional Leadership Fund rediscovered a familiar antidote to Trump´s drag and Handel´s standoffishness in its internal polling: Pelosi, the House minority leader from California who would once again become speaker in a Democratic takeover.

The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information. The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began, but it follows the conclusion of the FBI’s probe into the

The polls have closed in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional district for the special election between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel. The special election has turned out to be the most expensive in U.S. history, with each side pouring in tens of millions of dollars to back their particular candidate as Democrats see a potential momentum-shifter and Republicans see an opportunity to hold off the left once and for all in the era of President Donald Trump. President Trump has urged his supporters in Georgia to turn out in a series of Tweets, including one on Tuesday morning: (Tweet) The race

WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court on Monday ruled on lawsuits involving the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that have been running since then, ruling mostly in favor of the federal agents sued for their actions following the attacks, but remanding one issue back to the lower courts for another hearing. “After the September 11 terrorist attacks in this country, and in response to the deaths, destruction, and dangers they caused, the United States Government ordered hundreds of illegal aliens to be taken into custody and held,” Justice Anthony Kennedy began for the Court.

"I bet [Jon Ossoff] wishes he could vote like me, since I live in the district," Handel said when she arrived at the polls, in reference to the fact that Ossoff lives just over three miles outside of Georgia´s Sixth Congressional District.

Since leaving the White House in January, Michelle Obama has stayed relatively quiet and deprived us of her almost daily power-dressing inspiration. However, the former FLOTUS stepped out in N.Y.C. on Thursday in a vibrant summer sundress that we’re seriously hoping to copy for our next warm-weather event. For a day out in Manhattan, Obama chose a knee-length frock with vertical stripes of shades of blue and green that elongated her frame. She paired the vibrant dress with cat-eye sunglasses, hoop earrings, and nude pointy-toe pumps, keeping her accessories minimal to let her dress take center stage.

Watergate prosecutors had evidence that operatives for then-President Richard Nixon planned an assault on anti-war demonstrators in 1972, including potentially physically attacking Vietnam whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, according to a never-before-published memo obtained by NBC News. The document, an 18-page 1973 investigative memorandum from the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, sheds new light on how prosecutors were investigating attempts at domestic political violence by Nixon aides, an extremely serious charge. NBC News is publishing the memo, and an accompanying memo about an interview prosecutors conducted with GOP operative Roger Stone, as part of special coverage for the 45th anniversary of the Watergate

Republican Karen Handel staved off a furious challenge from Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday in a race to represent a suburban Atlanta seat in Congress, as the GOP and President Donald Trump avoided an embarrassing defeat in the most expensive U.S. House contest in history. A former Georgia secretary of state, Handel emphasized her experience and roots in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to defeat Ossoff and keep a seat that’s long been held by Republicans in GOP hands. She becomes Georgia’s first female Republican member of the U.S. House.

Republican Karen Handel has defeated her upstart Democratic challenger in a Georgia runoff election. Handel, an experienced politician and former Secretary of State for Georgia, emerged on Tuesday night with a narrow win over 30-year-old Jon Ossoff. Incomplete returns show she is on track to receive about 53 per cent of the vote. Her narrow victory in Georgia´s 6th Congressional District allows Republicans a sigh of relief after the hotly-contested race, which is considered the most expensive in US House history. The special election was considered one of the first tests for Donald Trump´s controversial presidency, with voters given a chance to put another

The image read: ´You can´t ignore your history.

CNN has been on a 24/7 mission to knock President Trump out of office -- or, failing that, discredit him with whatever it can. How bad is it? On Saturday, CNN openly sided with Cuba´s communist regime as it slammed Trump for rolling back former president Barack Obama´s steps to expand relations with Cuba. So it´s must be a real heartbreaker for the bigwigs at CNN to see the network´s new poll on Trump.

California state lawmakers approved $45 million in a state budget plan to expand legal services for immigrants, a response to the Trump administration´s call to increase deportations.

The Supreme Court decided Monday to take up a landmark challenge to partisan gerrymanders, raising the prospects of a significant rearrangement of legislative political power at the state and federal level. “Gerrymandering” refers to the practice of drawing legislative district lines to favor incumbents, political parties or interest groups. Although the justices have frequently invalidated district maps that disadvantage minorities, they have stopped short of striking down maps favoring one political party over the other. A ruling that partisan gerrymanders are unlawful would dramatically recast the apportionment process and shuffle the balance of power in Congress and state legislatures. “This
