Without archives on site, how will Obama
Center benefit area students, scholars?

Chicago Tribune, by Lolly Bowean

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/11/2017 5:33:43 AM

Once the Obama Presidential Center is constructed, it will have a children’s play garden, sledding hill, green spaces for picnics and outdoor gatherings, basketball courts and even a recording studio, officials have said. But what the space won’t have is all of former President Barack Obama’s manuscripts, documents, letters and gifts he collected during his time in office. While the Presidential Center is about four years from opening, a conversation has begun about what the facility will mean to scholars and to local research universities without those items. Traditionally, Presidential Libraries are places where historians, academics and college students travel to dig

Comments:
This is looking more and more like an expensive taxpayer-funded shrine, not a president library.

A YMCA / Boys Club would be a better investment in the neighborhood. At least they provide worthwhile services.

Turn it over to the US Park Service and let them run it. I remember when that pseudo president closed access to national parks for citizens AND he blocked access for Veterans to a private memorial in DC. Besides, it hasn´t been demonstrated that any Obama fans can read, so why clutter the park up with books?

No need to fret about the absence of any letters (probably all written in crayon), documents (probably just piles of shredded paper), manuscripts (both Ex-Dictator Obama and his low IQ "wife" can barely read and write)- instead just stock the building with cases and cases of toilet paper and that is all scholars need to "study" to get a historical feel for the true nature of the Obama years.

Why would there be any archives when everything about his life up until he ran for office has been sealed away? Then everything he did in office was a failure and an embarrassment. Now all of it is being gutted by PDT. What else can they archive - Reggie Love’s kneepads? Smidgen’s coke spoon? Mooch’s jock strap?

One of the advantages of browsing actual archived files by researchers is that one can stumble on to interesting things.
One major disadvantage to the former president is that embarrassing things can be found. (The Vietnam War series on PBS illustrated my point.LBJ, JFK and Nixon all looked bad and cynical on the war.)
What Barack is doing with his non library library is making sure that the myth of his life is maintained, by controlling access.

The building designs we’ve seen are beyond freakish. At this point, resentful of the money that has been spent to cart this stuff around (in the article) and the cost to taxpayers (mostly Illinois, right?)) for infrastructure, I’d say my evaluation is:

“At this point, what does it really matter?”

“Barrywood”. Works for me.

This way all the archived documents will not be out there for everyone to see, just the particular documents that the Obama crew decides to put on line.

Looks like the library will end up being an Obama socialist oriented propaganda center. Can’t see anyone going there other then the already on board choir.

“He hides what he is -- an example, no release of his school records or applications. All his life is hidden. The man is a lie. He can´t have a "biggest lie" because all he is, is lie.”
I wrote this in response to something several years ago. But it falls in line with what his so called library is. He will not make it easy to study him or his. It would be too easy to ask and answer questions about his life.

President Trump starts to rack up wins

Donald Trump´s first year in office has been, to put it mildly, a rocky one. But it can be argued that he´s ending it on an upswing. Congress is likely to soon pass a tax reform bill. Robert Mueller´s "Russia Squad" is getting its first round of bad press. Judge Roy Moore is favored to win next week´s Senate election in Alabama with Trump´s support. The Supreme Court has acquiesced to Trump´s travel ban for now (while it waits for the lower courts to rule). The Supreme Court also offers hope to social conservatives in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, facilitated by

David Brock May Be Illegally Funding
An Effort To Impeach Trump

WASHINGTON — David Brock’s Media Matters for America appears to be granting hundreds of thousands of dollars in charitable funds to political groups that are trying to impeach the president and unseat Republicans across the nation. Brock’s Media Matters for America is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has tax-exempt status. That tax-exempt status comes with an important caveat: the non-profit is barred from participating in political activity–funding or otherwise–that is in support or opposition to a candidate for office. Media Matters for America granted $200,000 in 2016 to a Brock organization,

The Treasury Department paid $220,000 in a previously undisclosed agreement to settle a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment that involved Florida Democrat Alcee L. Hastings, according to documents obtained by Roll Call. Winsome Packer, a former staff member of a congressional commission that promotes international human rights, said in documents that the congressman touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job. At the time, Hastings was the chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, where Packer worked. Hastings has called Packer’s charges “ludicrous” and in documents said he never sexually harassed her. “Until this evening, I had not seen

Here they go again — the news media, that is, racing to run stories meant to discredit President Trump’s 2016 election victory, only to wind up with egg on their faces. Friday, it was CNN’s turn to be caught spreading a false yarn — this one trying to link Team Trump with WikiLeaks and its supposed efforts, along with the Russians, to throw last year’s election to Trump. On Sept. 4, 2016, CNN said, Donald Trump Jr. got an e-mail tipping him off to WikiLeaks material that wasn’t yet public. That sure sounds like an effort to collude. Trouble is, the e-mail was actually dated Sept. 14 — a full 10 days later and after WikiLeaks

DETROIT – Michigan´s Republican governor announced Friday that Democrat John Conyers´ congressional seat will not be filled until the regularly scheduled November election, leaving it vacant for nearly a year. Gov. Rick Snyder decided the post will be listed twice on the August primary and November general election ballots. While unlikely, it is possible voters could choose one candidate to fill the vacancy until January 2019 and elect another to a full two-year term after that. It is unusual for a congressional district to stay vacant for so long, according to a review of roughly 100 vacancies and successors listed on

Trump, Mattis turn military loose on ISIS,
leaving terror caliphate in tatters

BAGHDAD – Hundreds of ISIS fighters had just been chased out of a northern Syrian city and were fleeing through the desert in long convoys, presenting an easy target to U.S. A-10 "warthogs." But the orders to bomb the black-clad jihadists never came, and the terrorists melted into their caliphate -- living to fight another day. The events came in August 2016, even as then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was vowing on the campaign trail to let generals in his administration crush the organization that, under President Obama, had grown from the “jayvee team” to the world’s most feared terrorist organization.

If you aren´t familiar with the "John Doe" investigation that rocked Wisconsin politics a few years ago, or are hazy on the details, go back and read my coverage of how the Left engaged in gross abuses of criminal law to intimidate, harass and silence conservatives in the state.

President Trump Hid A Massive Troll Of Obama

Candidate Trump promised many times on the campaign trail that, as president, he would have America saying “Merry Christmas” again. Trump has certainly made good on that promise, regularly using the greeting in speeches and statements. When the Trump’s released their official presidential Christmas card, the words Merry Christmas were front and center, emblazoned in gold. Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, sent out eight official presidential Christmas cards in his tenure. None of them said “Merry Christmas.” The distinction was cheered by conservative pundits and traditionalist who thought the Obama approach to Christmas was too “politically correct” and “inclusive.” The distinction

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time.

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday.
