Obama non-library ‘presidential center’
in Chicago devolving into a fiasco

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/10/2018 7:55:25 AM

The first community organizer to become president has managed to anger community groups so much with his planned personal monument, aka “presidential center,” that part of the plan was just scrapped. (snip) The original plan would have grabbed a treasured part of Chicago’s park system, the Midway (site of Chicago’s World’s Fair) for a two-story garage. The group Save the Midway sprang up to protect the historic public park land from a private developer (the Obama Foundation) appropriating the land for a private purpose (the Obama Center will not be part of the National Archives System) The embarrassment is palpable:

They decided against making it a library, since most of his supporters can´t read.

The design of the building reminds the article´s author of a cenotaph. A centotaph, I have learned, is a tomb-like structure built to commemorate someone who is buried elsewhere and is often used to pay tribute to soldiers who died in a war. In other words, it is an empty tomb -- and not the kind that Jesus left on Easter morning!

Seems fitting for an empty presidency that resulted in so much death.

Nobody ever accused the Obamas and their entourage of exquisite taste, much less honor and dignity. A library? Ain’t that racist and classist? Preserving the vision of the great Olmstead? Nope. He was a white guy. We need us another basketball court.
Chicago destroyed beautiful and profitable Midway Airport, let them put the Obamanation’s self-aggrandizing no-vision monument to tackiness and corruption on that now-weed-choked wasteland.

Pardon the second post but it just struck me that the plain concrete base of the non-library could be covered with a facade of fake grass, making the structure look like a giant hut in Kenya. The test kitchen could be used for roasting lion meat and grasshoppers.

Reminds me of KenCen. No, reminds me of Tora Bora. Looks like a fort with a drawbridge, portcullis, helipad, bomb shelter, excuse for storing food supplies, excuse for athletic training equipment, and a visitors center to vet people at a distance. Putting it in a park means a wide perimeter guarded and mowed by someone else. This doesn´t mean I am worried about it; they will freeze to death. buh bye!

O´Bumbler has no need for a library, he has nothing of merit to place in one.

Suddenly Obama is being disrespected in Chicago? What´s wrong with those folks -- don´t they know a "shovel ready" project when they see one?

Is it too late for Barack the Pharoah to move this whole boondoggle to Hawaii? Would that be a more congenial place for the Obama Presidential Rumpus Room and Activity Center? "Pave paradise . . . put up a parking lot" would be more in keeping with the Obama "legacy."

Stealing valuable parkland from the citizens of Chicago to build a monument to Obie.
Not one book to be included, which is apt, as Obie´s minions either will not or cannot read.

When I saw the illustration of the proposed building, I was immediately reminded of the ´Mask of Sorrow´ monument in Magadan, Russia, at the end of the Road of Bones.

My next thought was that the plans are already being refined as to how to skim off as much CA$H as possible and direct it into the pockets of the corrupt union officials and government officials. (Hey this IS Rhammy and Obie´s Chicago, ya know!)

Frederick Law Olmstead is arguable the American Capability Brown - a master landscape architect.. Public spaces designed by him are more than just acreage. A landscape has to grow, many of his vistas are just now fully mature. There are not a whole lot of his public works left. Jimmy Carter already had a go at destroying what´s left of what´s now called Olmstead Park along Ponce de leon Drive in Atlanta to make his Monument To Self. Whole neighborhoods were leveled in the surrounding area before public outcry stopped it and a different "Freedom Parkway" built.
Why do democrats hate Frederic Law Olmstead?

I am stunned that the Chicago machine and citizens turned their backs on the gilded one. BO and MO must be shocked. Their star fell pretty quickly.

What is crazy is that Okra from Chicago wants to resurrect BO non-legacy with a run for another black feminine president. Who is going to be in her cabinet? Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz (is he the Wizard with the scary hair), Stehdman (is he her husband, valet or what?), the Gayle chick whom I believe had her own talking show for like a week, or the numerous celebrities who have weird connections to mystics, psychics, vegans and gosh what else.

Kudos for Sheriff David Clarke for reminding us of the double standard practiced by the self-righteous guardians of social justice such as Starbucks, who flagellate themselves in public over the injustice of denying non-paying patrons use of their facilities – patrons who happen to be black: Not too long ago a Philadelphia Starbucks refused to let a police officer use the restroom telling him it was for paying customers. Don´t remember Starbucks closing 8000 stores for sensitivity training toward police. In 2015, an unnamed Philadelphia police sergeant entered a downtown Philadelphia Starbucks and asked to use the restroom. He might have been

Two apparent concessions from Pyongyang are boosting the chances of success for President Trump’s initiative to strike a “deal” that we would de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula and possibly even lure North Korea out of its status as a rogue nation, cut off from the outside world and shunning the norms of international relations. This would be a major triumph not just for Trump, but for America. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats are doing their utmost to rebuke and disempower the point man in achieving those concessions by obstructing CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination as Secretary of State.

If President Trump could hand-select his 2020 Democratic opponent, he could do no better than former Obama attorney general Eric Holder, the only Cabinet official held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents in the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. He is the poster child for the Deep State corruption that festered under Obama and the politicization of both the DOJ and FBI.

The label “Nixonian” is not a compliment, despite the many foreign policy accomplishments of the 37th president. And that adjective now will surely be attached to the reputation of James Comey for the rest of his days and beyond. Just as Richard Nixon’s most famous words are “I am not a crook,” James Comey’s most famous words inevitably will be those revealed in the memos he leaked to the New York Times through a cut-out: “I don’t leak. I don’t do weasel words.” (snip) Where are his media and political defenders going to go to escape derisive laughter?

Two professors, one in California and one in New Jersey, are reportedly under investigation by their employers for behavior that at a minimum is rude and arrogant, and which, some hope, could cost them their jobs. I believe that both are exemplars of the moral hazard that accompanies the exalted status accorded professors, often aggravated by the practice of granting tenure.

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey isn´t quite the book bonanza he´s been touted as. His book opening shows it. And, well, look at the book he´s selling: with little more than florid descriptions to speak for his otherwise content-free book, and no big revelations, what we get from it is that he has a high opinion of himself, he´s mad about getting fired, and he wants revenge. Yeah, yeah. And as the subject of his own book, he lacks the usual affection bestowed upon such people from the rabidly left-wing Occupods or the less rabid Hillaryites, because,

She was Bill Clinton´s second choice to be attorney general, after the Zoe Baird nomination blew up.

I restrained myself from commenting on the suicide to protest global warming of “famed gay rights lawyer” David Buckel for the last two days because, quite frankly, my first reactions were inappropriate laughter at what must be regarded as a human tragedy. “What was the carbon footprint of dousing himself in flammables and releasing into the atmosphere all the carbon in a carbon-based life form?” was the first thought I had. But after all, this is a human being, so I hesitated to mock. After some reflection, I see that this is a tragedy the Greek sense of the word,

The day that James Comey cashed the multi-million dollar advance check from MacMillan Publishers will turn out to mark the date that we can call “Peak Comey.” It was all downhill from the instant the ink started drying on his signature on the back of the check. He and his ghost writer suddenly faced the unenviable task of making him look like the righteous warrior he had always portended to be, but with the need to fill 300 pages with something. Self-serving rationalizations can’t sustain reader interest over that many words, so apparently they decided that prose about physical appearances

WASHINGTON – Malik Shabazz, former chairman of the New Black Panther Party and president of Black Lawyers for Justice, called on President Trump to provide reparations for slavery or designate territory solely for African-Americans. “We must have reparations, full compensation for the theft of our land, the theft of our bodies, the theft of our people from Africa, the theft of our dignity; the desecration of our souls decade after decade after decade after decade.

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements.

WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) urged Congress not to legalize marijuana, breaking with other members of his party such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
