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

Comments:
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...

OP comment: The article goes on to list and illustrate the professors’ complaints. Also included is this link to their original letter:

The length of the list of professor signators to this complaint letter is long and being added to everyday.

"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.

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".

Donald Trump’s presidency is done. Over. No, seriously.

Yes, those whose admirable consistency lies in being wrong about everything, are certain, kind of, that we are in the end stages of the Trump presidency.(Snip)“This is the week we know, with increasing certainty, that we are entering the last phase of the Trump Presidency,” it went. “This doesn’t feel like a prophecy; it feels like a simple statement of the apparent truth,” The New Yorker’s Adam Davidson feathered,

Washington’s self-righteous establishmentarians talk of professionalism when they act unprofessionally. They refer at length to their intellectual and professional pedigrees when they prove incompetent. And they cite their morality and ethics when they possess neither. And then, adding insult to injury, when the public expresses abhorrence at their behavior, they accuse critics of unprofessionalism, a lack of patriotism, or reckless demagoguery. A James Clapper can lie to Congress under oath about intelligence surveillance of U.S. citizens; a John Brennan can lie about CIA monitoring of U.S. Senate computers, or mislead Congress about the absence of any collateral damage in the

Kevin Williamson’s primal whine of a weekend essay in the Wall Street Journal reported that he was fired by the Atlantic magazine after serving an indecently short tenure—a matter of days in fact. He wants to explain how it all happened, but he’s too distraught to be coherent, so let me try to help. Let’s start with why the Atlantic hired him in the first place. Williamson’s stock-in-trade is the vituperative insult. Firmly ensconced in the part of the conservative movement that prides itself in good manners, he was, nevertheless, the epitome of unbridled nastiness at National Review. But then his

Trump is Guilty of Obstructing . . .

The charge that Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia to steal the 2016 election was never serious. The Democratic National Committee’s civil suit in that regard makes the unseriousness transparent. “Obstruction of justice” is the charge Democrats want to use to remove him from office. And in fact, Trump’s campaign, his election, and presidency, have done a lot of obstruction. He has thwarted longstanding bureaucratic policies and has fired bureaucrats. Whether that has obstructed justice or favored it depends on the meaning of “justice.” The following explains the “justice” that the Democratic Party and its ruling class retinue correctly accuse Donald Trump

We are living through an era when the Western democracies are generally reassessing a great deal of assumed conventional liberal wisdom, and have been conducted in this direction by political leadership that is often disparaged in our mainstream media as disreputable rabble-rousing. The most remarkable aspect of it is no longer that there have been sharp populist turns in the American, British, German, Italian, French, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Austrian and other electorates (including, nascently, Brazil on the right and Mexico on the left). The larger issue in the United States and the leading western European countries is that the media

New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book on Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election, and one anecdote in particular from it was getting attention on Friday. It's from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to "Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager," per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton "didn't seem all that surprised," writes Chozick. Then the key Clinton quote: "'I knew it. I knew this would happen to me,' she said, now within

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. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day.

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.
