Federal lawsuit accuses Obama Presidential Center
of ‘bait and switch’ in land grab of park space

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 5/15/2018 6:52:00 AM

Chicago is planning to hand over 19 acres of public parkland, occupying a prime lakefront site, to a private entity, for a nominal sum, in order to build a monument to Barack Hussein Obama. Now, a Chicago nonprofit, Protect Our Parks, filed a lawsuit Monday in federal court alleging, according to the Chicago Tribune, that: …established law precludes the Park District from arbitrarily transferring possession, use and control of this dedicated ‘open, clear and free’ public parkland in Jackson Park to a private nongovernmental … entity’s self-determined use,” the complaint says. The complaint cites an “institutional bait and switch” because

But it´s for Barack, Chicago. He´s your man. And he´s always on "the right side of history." Give it up for the former Preezie and his self-aggrandizement. Sheesh. You want it to be legal or something?

Believe Presidential Libraries fall under the Library of Congress, as there was a big deal about the Nixon Library turning from private to Federal, and how they´d "show" things in the library contrary to how Nixon´s private folks were showing things.

Doubt Obama wants anyone else explaining his president years, or most of his years.

After all, most likely don´t know that much about him, after all.

Once again the Obamas, Dems and the Left in general, forget that public office is public SERVICE, not an elevation to Royalty. In Chicago, there are miles of blighted areas that could use a pick-up. There are hundreds of building that could be renovated or even razed and rebuilt. But no - they want the public jewel for their very own, and will use deception to get it. Rather than demonstrate the power of revitalization - they desire the perfection of virgin new. And they will steal public lands and dollars (don´t think that Chicago won´t be forking over TONS of taxpayer dollars for this, #6)and justify it with smug "It´s for the people" lies.

Why would Obama want anyone or anything explaining his failed years as President as well as his coup d´etat in the 2016 election?
It´s not a library but an electronic, changeable explanation of Obama and his Presidency. Like a Ken Burns documentary movie, it supports the Democrat narrative.

Smirking Strzok´s weakness: Lisa Page
American Thinker, by Elad Hakim    Original Article

Peter Strzok was so busy remembering his lies when he testified in front of Congress that he forgot one important piece of information. His better half, Lisa Page, had not yet testified; she owed him absolutely nothing; and the two were never married! In other words, there is nothing that he can do to prevent her from testifying against him. (snip) Obviously, Ms. Page was well aware of where Mr. Strzok´s testimony was false. As a seasoned attorney, she also knew that some of his lies would provide useful ammunition or bargaining chips for her down the road. Throughout the course of

I´ve long said Hillary Clinton is insufficiently stupid to have believed she could operate an unsecured home server without compromising the security of any data transmitted through it or stored on it. For just as long, it has been my contention that the server was the faucet through which she pumped information she was selling (yes, selling) to foreign entities, both public and private. I.T. security protocols would´ve easily flagged attempts at intrusion if targeted toward the State Department´s secure servers, through which then-secretary of state Clinton ought to have conducted business. Likewise, the transfer or copying of said information from a

Even some of his strongest advocates are disappointed that President Trump failed to resoundingly agree with the intelligence community assertion that Russia interfered in our election.(snip) he is also well aware of the kind of footsie that the most recent nominee of the Democrats, Hillary Clinton, played with the Kremlin in approving the sale of a quarter of our uranium reserves to a Russian entity, in return for huge, nine-figure donations to the Clinton Foundation and a half million dollar speech for her husband.

Trump, Churchill’s Chair,

Recently, on Donald Trump’s “working visit” to the UK, environmentalist royal princes Charles and William refused to meet the President. Based on their boorish behavior, the population control liberals may be emulating Barack Obama, who exhibited hostility toward world leaders when he refused to attend Bibi Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress. Despite Charles, William, and newlywed Harry’s absence, Mr. and Mrs. Trump arrived at Windsor Castle where they were greeted by the 92-year-old Queen who didn’t invite them to a sleepover like she did the Obamas, but did serve tea. After the visit, no one reported whether or not

President Trump’s diplomacy will continue to make America safe and strong, as long as he relies upon his own experience in negotiation and does not follow State Department guidance. The majority of our 75,382 State Department employees do not support our president. Many are openly scornful. Several ambassadors, ready to retire anyway and with full pensions locked in, have resigned dramatically. But because State Department protocols and diplomacy have failed us for decades – in Libya, Syria, with the creation of ISIS, Russian expansion, and North Korean belligerence – their “Resistance” has given President Trump the opportunity to do an end-run around

Twitter culls fake followers,

Twitter announced it would be culling the platform´s fake followers. It makes good business sense to do this, because fake followers distort the influence ratings for advertisers, making accounts full of fakes a money-losing proposition for advertisers (who are Twitter´s real, paying customers). If someone has fake followers, they look more influential than they really are. Well, guess what: There is an extraordinarily high number of Democrats, the kind who draw lots of media hype, with puffed up ´it´ status, loaded with fake followers. I went and checked with this site called TwitterAudit here. Some of these accounts, as both Twitter

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Only a fool or a Democrat (the two groups considerably overlap in the United States) would believe Peter Strzok’s claim under oath that it was only the appearance of bias, not actual bias, that was the problem with his texts to his inamorata Lisa Page. Yet, the Democrats in the joint committee hearing were eager to hitch their wagon to his fate. One of them, Rep Steve Cohen of Memphis, offended many people with his claim that Strzok deserved a “Purple Heart,” oblivious to the genuine grievous physical injuries that have been honored with this medal that he trivialized.

All but admitting that the bill they introduced yesterday to abolish ICE was a political stunt, three House Democrats are feigning outrage (the default option for Dems ever since Trump won the presidency) that it will be promptly brought to a vote. They actually announced that they will note “no” on their own bill. (snip) Normally, members of a minority party publicly fume when their bills are not brought to a vote by the leadership of the majority. This is the standard operating procedure.

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.

The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm
