Wisconsin Officials Want To Name
Soviet-Style Building After Obama,
‘JFK Of Our Generation’

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

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

Comments:
How befitting to name a Soviet style building after the Marxist Obama. Obama deserved to be honored because of his commitment to civil discourse and respect?? Good. Grief. Talk about propaganda. That is really perverse. Sadly and sickly, the adoration of that evil man will continue on for years and years.

Hopefully more thoughtful "officials" will rethink this.

In the meantime I have a problem naming government buildings after anyone. Who do they think they are?

I live in NY, where we´ve had a round of "rename the bridges and tunnels" and managed to rename them all after Democrats.

My favorite renaming is the Tri-Boro bridge that became the RFK bridge - RFK Jr. used to ride over it regularly to buy heroin in Harlem.

Don´t mind Laguardia airport - he actually was a WWI pilot, and did much to bring an airport to NYC.

if they want. but in the long run, same as they are scraping the name of every slavery supporter off every building and school, one day we will do the same with every abortion supporter. I think we will start with Obama, but it is tough: pelosi? durbin? harkin? jesse jackson? the clintons? gore? All their names off everything and any statues pulled down and melted. going to.

JFK would have loved Obama´s cozy relationship with Castro. He´d love his bowing to foreign leaders, his dumping of NASA, his "tax the rich" mantra, his ceding of American leadership and world wide apology tour, his "flexibility" with the Russians, his nuclear deal with Iran, etc.

JFK, no matter how he conducted his personal life, was a proud American. He didn´t hesitate to speak about the opportunities America provided or the possibilities if we set high goals for ourselves. Just the line "Ask not..." is the antithesis of Obama´s philosophy.

Stupid people rewrite history when there are so many left who lived it.

If those saying that Obama is the "JFK of our generation" actually were educated enough to know about JFK, they would know that, compared to Obama and the Democrats today, JFK looks like a conservative.

No picture of the building but the idea is perfect -communist building to honor a communist. As the author said dreary, soul crushing, describes him perfectly. Just tired, old, empty, uninspired ideas ... and most of all, failed ideas, just like the soviet union.

Like the clintons, obama deserves a lot of things, but it doesn´t seem as though anyone is interested in investigating or prosecuting.

Obama had a "commitment to civil discourse and respect" ?? Who knew? He stirred up racial hatred and division for eight years, causing rioting in the streets and attacks on innocent white people.

As for Obama’s eight “totally scandal-free” years, the “style and grace with which he served.” Is there another dimension or reality in which leftists live? Do they need to be re-educated or de-programmed? Unbelievable.

If you feel that strongly about it, go ahead and name the building after the Kenyan/Indonesian fraud. You can engrave his list of accomplishments on the front door knob and make sure you dedicate one of the LGBTQFTH bathrooms after him/her/it.

A judge who could "decide Trump´s fate" previously served as senior counsel for Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.). The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that Beryl Howell, who was appointed as a federal judge by President Barack Obama in 2010, signed off Mueller´s request to form a grand jury that will seek to gather documents and question Trump associates. Howell´s role could become "far more active," the Daily Beast reported. The grand jury could potentially put together a report that could start impeachment proceedings that would have to be signed off by Howell before becoming available to Congress or the public.

Lord has previously called the group "Media Matters Fascists." "Nazi salutes are indefensible," a CNN spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon. "Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network."

The two-year-old restored US diplomatic relationship with Cuba was roiled Wednesday by what US officials say was a string of bizarre incidents that left a group of American diplomats in Havana with severe hearing loss attributed to a covert sonic device. In retaliation for the hearing loss incidents the US State Department has expelled two Cuban diplomats from the US over safety concerns of American officials and launched an investigation. Officials familiar with the probe said investigators were looking into the possibilities that the incidents were carried out by a third country such as Russia, possibly operating without the knowledge of Cuba´s

Blonde hair is at least 11,000 years old. The variety we’re now most familiar with began as a genetic mutation in northern Europe, where the sun is weak: Light hair allows more vitamin D to trickle in through the scalp, the theory goes, which is useful when the sky is cold and dark.

Over the past decade or so, as inclusiveness became the hallmark of Obama-era liberals, the left found feminist icons

President Trump’s top spokesman on Thursday did nothing to downplay his public spat with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, saying “there some frustration” with the Kentucky Republican. “You can see the president’s tweets. Obviously there’s some frustration. I don’t have anything more to add,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters in New Jersey, where Trump is vacationing for 17 days. The comments came after Trump fired back at McConnell for saying the president had “excessive expectations” about advancing his agenda through Congress. “Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don´t think so.

But the documents do not appear to be what the committee was hoping that Fusion GPS and its founder, Glenn Simpson, would provide. “The committee is reviewing the production received late this afternoon from Mr. Simpson, but virtually all of the documents appear to be merely news clippings rather than records of Fusion’s substantive communications,” George Hartmann, a spokesman for the Senate Judiciary Committee, told TheDC.

Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka,

There are two possible rationales: the legitimate one and the brass-knuckles one. Here’s the thing to bear in mind about the Washington Post’s report that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had the FBI execute a search warrant against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in late July: Prosecutors don’t do pre-dawn raids on the home of a cooperating witness. Manafort has publicly projected cooperation. Of course, we can’t know how cooperative he has actually been. The public has been kept in the dark about what is being investigated, and Mueller and the congressional committees are doing most of their work behind

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass.—Jamaicans and other foreign workers have long powered the summer economy in the upscale tourist haven of Martha’s Vineyard, cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables and mixing fudge. This year, many local businesses had to come up with a Plan B. Facing a shortage of foreign laborers, local restaurants have reduced hours of operation and pared back menus. Managers are cleaning hotel rooms, laundry is piling up and at least one restaurant is using disposable cups to ease the dishwashers’ load. The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.

Worried by the Trump administration’s delay in announcing a military strategy for the war in Afghanistan, Sen. John McCain said Thursday he’ll try to force the debate on Capitol Hill, offering his own plan that would force a troop increase. The Arizona Republican, who is also chairman of the Armed Services Committee, didn’t lay out a number in the legislation but said more U.S. counterterrorism forces should be deployed, and given independent authority to strike targets of the Taliban, al Qaeda or other terrorist groups. Mr. McCain also said the U.S should secure a long-term agreement with Afghanistan for an

A Virginia high school sent a disturbing letter to parents and students announcing they would be selecting students for Advanced Placement and honors classes at least partly based on skin color, a concerned parent told Fox News. Martin Luther King, Jr. must be turning over in his grave. A parent forwarded me a copy of the letter sent from John Handley High School in Winchester. “Through our collective work, advanced classes such as AP and Honors will have proportional representation,” read the letter. “Proportional representation is 40% White, 35% Hispanic, 12% African American, 10% mixed race.” The letter went on to explain that

Mohammed Abed, a California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) tenure-track professor of ethics, social & political philosophy, and classical Islamic philosophy believes that genocide of white racists is “morally required”. Mohammed Abed claims that sometimes you just have to commit genocide to save the world from the evil people…like white racists. (Photo) David Cole broke down Abed’s academic paper “The Concept of Genocide Reconsidered” which was originally published in 2006. Cole says in a Taki’s Mag post: Abed reasons, it’s sometimes “morally required” to commit genocide, and he hasn’t been shy about advancing that argument in a series of lectures

Democrats are threatening to shutter many government agencies on October 1 unless President Donald Trump gives up his popular campaign promise to build the border wall against Mexico, according to Politico. In response, Trump’s deputies are offering political compromises to Democrats, including a rise in domestic spending, says Politico: The White House is pushing a deal on Capitol Hill to head off a government shutdown that would lift strict spending caps long opposed by Democrats in exchange for money for President Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico, multiple sources said. Marc Short, the White House’s director of legislative affairs, met

A Minnesota writing conference was canceled Wednesday after people complained about the lack of diversity in the line-up of writers that were going to attend. The organizers of the Loft Literary Center’s conference, aimed at teaching people how to write young adult novels, scrapped their plans when they learned that all the speakers but one were white, reports the Star Tribune. “We have set a goal for ourselves to be inclusive and to work toward equity, and we didn’t think the conference would live up to that mission,” Britt Udesen, executive director of the Loft, said Wednesday. “We made a mistake.” Twenty-two authors
