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.

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".

Remember a recent stop in India on Hillary Clinton´s "Excuse Tour", blaming everyone and everything except the family dog for her surprising (at least to her and her supporters) electoral loss to Donald Trump? Two things stand out from her visit to India – her tumble down the stairs and her latest excuse as to why she lost the election everyone thought she would win in a landslide. Instead of Rush Limbaugh or Fox News brainwashing voters to choose Trump, this time the puppet masters were white men, dripping with privilege and deplorable-ness.

Fired FBI deputy Director Andrew McCabe´s lawyer told reporters Friday that the FBI and Justice Department "got it horribly wrong" when they fired McCabe hours before his retirement, in late March. McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich claimed that the process was too rushed. It was "absolutely clear this process was accelerated to be able to terminate McCabe," he said. Bromwich said he and other lawyers are looking at the next plausible legal steps – which could include alleging defamation or wrongful termination. A Go Fund me account started after McCabe was fired was closed when it reached $550,000 – and McCabe´s team

Rep.

The lawsuit, filed Friday, alleges that the trio conspired to tip the scales of the 2016 election against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Speaking with CNN´s Wolf Blitzer, Speier, who endorsed Clinton in 2016, said she is "not very supportive" of the legal endeavor she described as an "ill-conceived idea." “I think we have a very serious criminal activity underway in this country by the Russians and

Former FBI Director James Comey says he wrote his book to show people how President Trump is running the government in a way that "fails to reflect the values of an ethical leader." But Comey´s book, his media tour and the related Thursday release of memos detailing his meetings with Trump are quickly doing real damage to Comey himself. Perhaps most importantly, Comey´s own memos reveal that he lied when he told Trump, "I don´t leak.”(Snip)The book tour circus has also demonstrated that while Comey likes to downplay his own leaks, he spent time at the FBI getting others in trouble for

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B.

Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

A small group of mostly high school students gathered in front of the White House on Friday as part of the National School Walkout, an anti-gun protest launched by a Connecticut teen following the shooting deaths of 17 people at a Florida high school in February. (Snip)“And so too must we regulate the Second Amendment,” Berlin said. “Just as the freedoms of the First Amendment are subject to rules and regulation so too must be those protected under the Second.” “No amendment is absolute,” Berlin said. “Your right to a gun does not supersede my right to graduate high school.”

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

Roger Stone, a former adviser to President Trump, lost an invitation to speak at a Florida Republican group´s annual dinner due to negative remarks he made about former first lady Barbara Bush. The Okaloosa Republican Executive Committee "uninvited" Stone over comments he made to the right-wing conspiratorial website InfoWars about Bush, who died Tuesday. "I understand I´m going to take a lot of crap for speaking the truth about Barbara Bush," Stone said in an interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones. "She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk. She is ascending into hell right now. She´s not going to heaven. She

“No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

It is with a heavy heart, and profound regret for the current state of media in America, that I have dragged my laptop to a Starbucks to pen this column. But I think it is important that we understand the degree of oppression we are up against. I regret to say: I have been silenced. I expressed an opinion, and people criticized that opinion. And since that day, my voice has never been heard again. I am entombed where none can hear my jangling bells, for doing nothing more than walking down the street, saying that women who get abortions
