Liberals Just Hit Obama With Very Bad News About His Presidential Library, Saves Taxpayers Millions
By Gary Maher - February 7, 2018067
Poor Obama. He must feel as a man under attack. He has attempted to keep up some level of importance since his takeoff from the White House. Other than hardcore liberals, it’s far-fetched anybody truly minds. What’s more, at any rate, those on the left are so bustling exploding over what President Trump is doing that they don’t have much time for yesterday’s leader.

Neglecting to look after importance, he may have trusted that his legacy would persevere. He’s in a tight spot there, as well.

President Trump has pursued the Obama legacy with all the nuance of a train wreck. One year into the Trump administration, and it’s elusive much that Mr. Obama made that is still in one piece.

In any event, he can enthuse over plans for his presidential library. These are those generally superfluous, government-funded dedications to past administrations.

Mr. Obama wants his in Chicago. Sufficiently reasonable, yet even this fairly trivial undertaking has to keep running into a block. What’s more, not from conservatives.

Things being what they are a liberal group is miserable with Mr. Obama’s selection of areas for the Obama Center, calling it “socially regressive.” Ouch.

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. The design includes three buildings: a museum, library and forum.

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 the affluent community.

Is there an all the more stinging affront that can be heaved at a liberal than being called “socially regressive?” And take note of this is no little development. As simply announced, the judgment originates from a hundred college educators and in addition many community groups.

Here is an outline of their complaints:

Obama Presidential Center leaves no room to bring economic development.
The Obama Center destroys a historic park.
Obama Presidential Center is “socially regressive.”
The Obama Center wastes taxpayer money.
That last one is straightforward at one level, however somewhat bewildering at another. We understand that this entire task is a waste of public funds. We were simply not mindful that there were any open finances left in Chicago to squander.

What’s to be said now? A bunch of liberals who are out of government cash is fighting over what to do about a futile “center” that is to concentrate on the non-existent achievements of an administration that does not have a legacy.

It’s an ideal opportunity to get inventive and take care of this issue for poor Barack.

We’ve heard that the Chinese are quite great at building artificial islands. Maybe they could be urged to encouraged one out in Lake Michigan in perspective of Chicago. Similar to Alcatraz is in perspective of San Francisco.

Maybe Bill and Hillary could then be coaxed into forking over a couple of billion from the Clinton Foundation to help construct the thing. This, maybe, as a byproduct of a film theater at the mind-boggling that would run recordings of Clinton addresses and their appearances previously Congress and investigators all day, every day. Like an endless fire. All things considered, kind of.

Simply don’t put a visit to this fiasco, wherever it winds up, on our container rundown of activities.

Barack Obama’s presidency was not ‘scandal-free’ –

Barack Obama’s presidency was not ‘scandal-free’ – here are four big ones

Barack Obama’s presidency was not ‘scandal-free’ – here are four big ones
International Monetary Fund / CCL
Democrats like to tout the claim that the administration of former President Obama was “scandal-free,” but it’s simply not true.

In fact, the record shows that the Obama administration was unusually scandal-ridden. But since the media wasn’t interested in reporting on them, many Americans remain unaware.

Here are four of the worst.

Fast And Furious.
Operation Fast and Furious was facilitated by the Obama administration as a program to sell firearms to Mexican drug cartels, presumably to track the guns to the cartel leaders and arrest them.

But the government lost track of the guns and when those guns were used in crimes in America, including the murder of United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, the administration scapegoated the Second Amendment.

“The Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives apparently ordered one of its own agents to purchase firearms with taxpayer money, and sell them directly to a Mexican drug cartel…” a report in The New York Post read. “Let that sink in: After months of pretending that ‘Fast and Furious’ was a botched surveillance operation of illegal gun-running spearheaded by the ATF and the U.S. attorney’s office in Phoenix, it turns out that the government itself was selling guns to the bad guys.”

IRS Targeting Scandal.
The Obama administration’s IRS targeted conservative groups for special “reviews” of their tax status applications. Groups with the words “patriot” or “tea party” in their names were singled out for increased scrutiny.

The Daily Caller reported that President Obama personally met with a top official at the IRS days before that official instructed his staff on how to target the groups.

“IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins’ boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs,” the report read.

“On April 25, 2012, Wilkins’ office sent the exempt organizations’ determinations unit “additional comments on the draft guidance” for approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS inspector general’s report.

“During Obama’s first four years as President, IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman made 157 visits to the White House,” it said.

Spied On The Press.
The Obama administration got its hands on two months of phone records of editors and reporters of The Associated Press in what it called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news.

“The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and the main number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of calls,” it said.

“In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters,” The AP reported.

Lied About Obamacare.
You remember when President Obama said “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” don’t you? It was voted Lie of The Year by Politifact in 2013.

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people… If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what,” he concluded.

But after the law was passed the American citizens found out that those words were untrue when the Congressional Budget Office announced that a minimum of seven million people would lose their health insurance because of The Affordable Care Act.

And that is not all Obama lied about to get his signature legislation passed by Congress.

“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits – either now or in the future. I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period. And to prove that I’m serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promised don’t materialize,” he said.

But after he signed it The Washington Post reported that Obamacare would add $340 billion to the budget in the next decade.

Of course, the Obama Administration was beset by dozens of other scandals small and large. From Benghazi to the Iran deal, Obama’s leadership was characterized by unprincipled use of government power, and a total lack of transparency.

Obama benefited from a compliant media that refused to cover his many transgressions. He may have been free from accountability, but scandal-free he was not.
