Furious Chicago Professors Demand
Obama Move His ‘Socially Regressive’
Presidential Center Elsewhere

Daily Caller, by Benny Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/11/2018 9:49:58 AM

Sometimes you just cant win. Former president Obama is finalizing plans for his Obama Presidential Center, which will be built in Chicago, Illinois and will be within a stone’s throw of the University of Chicago.(Snip) The library’s design and location has been a source of controversy itself within the Chicago community. In a recent letter, over 100 members of the University of Chicago faculty and dozens of community groups strongly condemn Obama’s plan. Why? Because, according to the professors, the Obama Presidential Center wastes millions of taxpayer dollars in an already broke state, destroys a public park and is “socially regressive” to

Loved the headline. It says so much. The mighty Zero has managed to alienate just about every “community” he ever belonged to, including the professors. “Socially Regressive”? Nothing like a socially regressive community organizer. Little by little, they are figuring him out...

"Socially regressive"? Oh, there´s a low blow. That alone is going to put Obama off his arugula.

This being Chicago, I assume all the noise is just clarifications of where, and to which parties, the pallets of money, all in unmarked white envelopes, should be delivered.

Ironic that this fraud would use a public park designed by a man who believed that the common green space must always be equally accessible to all citizens, and was to be defended against private encroachment. Olmstead was a co-designer of Central Park.

While I agree wholeheartedly with the UC faculty, I do think that it´s interesting that the most liberal people in the world will finally challenge Obama when they are the ones being affected.

When it was the rest of us being destroyed by Obama and his whims not so much.

Re #6, thank you for that information. I had no idea that Obama was now encroaching on and undoubtedly spoiling an Olmsted park. Here is more information on Olmsted for the uninitiated. Seems to me that advocates for preservation of these parks should be involved in shutting down Obie’s Great Pyramid.

Apparently Obama has copied Hellary. Destroy all the presidential data that you don´t want known, put the lies that you want remembered on computers.

Near as I can tell, they will have no National Archives presidential documents. It sounds like they have been destroyed, or they have claimed that none exist.

The man with a fake birth certificate, a fake SS number and a fake Selective Service registration also has a fake "presidential archive".

We will likely never know who this Communist Marxist destroyer really was.

I´m with #22. My first thought was that they actually did build a concrete outhouse, with a companion waste treatment center.

I also noticed that the model used leafless trees. Usually those models show full beautiful shade trees. How appropriate to give us a visual of Zero´s fruitless regime.

I agree this monstrosity will never be built, but the design does embody The Big Ugly. God has a "wicked" sense of humor.

Bubba Clinton got his "double wide adult bookstore and massage parlor" in Little Rock so let Obama have a monument to his life.

An existing structure is probably available at a great cost savings to the Obama Foundation.

The "Man´s Country" bath house in downtown Chicago could be acquired and become a "twofer"-- a Presidential and Mayoral Lie Bury, since rumors abound that Obama and Rahm Emanuel were both life time members before the records were "laundered".

Trump is right: The special counsel

Posted By: earlybird- 3/22/2018 11:05:29     Post Reply
President Trump is right in saying that a special counsel should never have been appointed to investigate the so-called Russian connection. There was no evidence of any crime committed by the Trump administration. But there was plenty of evidence that Russian operatives had tried to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, and perhaps other elections, in the hope of destabilizing democracy.(Snip)Such a commission could have informed the American public of what Russia did and how to prevent it from doing it again. It would not seek partisan benefit from its findings, the way congressional committees invariably do. Nor would it

Sneaky. CTH anticipated POTUS Trump would withdraw from NAFTA due to the FATAL FLAW that still remains unaddressed in all discussions. So it came as a surprise to see reports (opaquely cited) that U.S.T.R. Lighthizer was willing to drop the U.S. firm stance on content origination rules within the auto-sector. Why would the Trump team agree to low thresholds of U.S. auto-parts used in American cars? It just doesn’t make sense.

The suspect in a spate of bombings that terrorized residents of Austin, Texas, died early Wednesday after detonating an explosive inside his vehicle as a SWAT team tried to apprehend him on the side of a highway, officials said. Authorities had tracked the suspect — a 24-year-old white man — to a hotel in Round Rock, a city in the Austin metropolitan area, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference. Police did not name the bomber, but two law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation identified him to NBC News as Mark Anthony Conditt.

With the decisive midterm elections just months away, Democrats are finally rolling out a long-awaited jobs program in hopes of wooing disaffected, working-class voters back to their party this November. Their message is sure to win the hearts and minds of millions of blue-collar workers in the heartland who abandoned the party in 2016 to vote for Donald Trump. It is unflinching in its commitment to protect the most vulnerable employees—those who are at-risk of having their jobs taken away on a whim by powerful forces—and rendered unable to pay their bills or find other work.

Hillary Clinton continues to attack President Trump while abroad, this time during an interview with a Dutch news network. During the interview, which took place on March 13, Clinton alleged that Trump is undermining the presidency in exchange for personal and familial gain. “He has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family,” Clinton said. “Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” “He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic, that are undermining the stability of the global order,” she continued.

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

Police in Glendale, Wis., are currently seeking the public’s help in identifying an irate McDonald’s customer who assaulted a teenage employee after receiving the wrong breakfast order. The suspect and a friend reportedly pulled up to the drive-thru of the McDonald’s just before 11 a.m. on March 18, where they placed an order for a breakfast sandwich with bacon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But upon receiving a breakfast sandwich with sausage instead, the woman became angry. “What the [expletive] is this? I didn´t order no sausage biscuit,” said the woman, who then threw the food back at the

A retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit Tuesday and denounced the network and President Donald Trump in an email to colleagues. "Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration," wrote Ralph Peters, a Fox News "strategic analyst." "Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed," he wrote.

Actors and athletes increasingly using their forums for political activism are turning off viewers, according to a newly released poll. A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

Discussing cities is like talking about the knots in a net: they’re crucial, but they’re only one part of the larger story of the net and what it’s supposed to do. It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation. This origin story underlines how agriculture made cities possible, by providing

Based on the latest U.S. Census Bureau statistics from July 2016 to July 2017, Californians are leaving the state in droves. As Jed Kolko, chief economist with employment website Indeed.com, pointed out regarding the data, "The rate at which California has been losing people to other states has accelerated in the past couple of years, in part because of rising housing costs … more people moved out of California to other states than moved in from other states. In other words, California lost people due to domestic migration."There are apparently three prime destinations for the migrating Californians: Texas, Arizona, and

Speaker Paul Ryan is set to pass the largest spending bill in US history next to Barack Obama’s trillion dollar failed stimulus. President Trump spoke on Monday about the importance of the border wall with Mexico to enhance national security and battle the opioid crisis in America. But once again it is unlikely that funding for the border wall will be included in the spending bill. Democrats don’t want it. So it is unlikely Ryan will include it in the bill. Planned Parenthood and funding for sanctuary cities will be included in the bill. Politico reported: Congressional leaders and top
