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

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/18/2017 10:40:23 AM

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.

Clinton: GOP will become the

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/23/2017 9:20:24     Post Reply
Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.

Former President Obama’s foreign policy adviser and speechwriter Ben Rhodes implied Fox News was state-sanctioned media on Friday. “Avoiding on camera questions from independent media and favoring a state-sanctioned outlet would be cause for concern in any country,” Rhodes said in a tweet, linking to another tweet about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer´s interview with the network. (Snip) Rhodes comment comes as the White House takes criticism for refusing to hold on-camera press briefings.

The gathering would follow Saudi Arabia, Egypt and five other Muslim countries severing diplomatic and commercial relations with Qatar. The regional powers had accused the tiny Gulf state of funding terrorism – blasting Qatar for allegedly boosting groups like ISIS, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and working with Iran to destabilize the region.

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned.

[…] John Anzalone, Ossoff’s pollster, said the Democrat’s campaign succeeded in turning out its voters — but they were swamped by Republicans who came out in numbers that ended up dwarfing previous high-profile special elections (link) That’s a very interesting admission/statement for a Politico article.

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials.

Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl want to ask potential jurors in a court-martial for their views on President Trump and whether they voted for him, according to news reports Wednesday. At a pretrial hearing Wednesday, Berdahl´s lawyers submitted the questions to the judge in the case, out of concern that jurors may be swayed by negative comments Trump made in the presidential campaign about the soldier.

President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon.

Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the

Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying

President Trump said Thursday he has "no idea" if there are recordings of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey. "With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea … whether there are ‘tapes´ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings," Trump said in a two separate tweets Thursday.
