Hardworking Americans Furious At How Obama Bamboozled Them Out Of Nearly $200 Mil Of Their Money

Published

on

Since President Obama left office he has not exactly remained quiet like other presidents in the past who agree to let the next administration take over while they allow their successor their moment. While Obama is usually commenting on problems he has with the Trump Administration, the recent news articles on the former president are not related to politics. Instead, it is in reference to the outrage of Americans in Illinois and across the country over the $200 million that the former president is stealing in order to create his own presidential library.

American News reported,

“While former President Barack Obama is no longer in office, he somehow still is managing to cost taxpayers a lot of money. Because there is close to $200 million dollars allocated to do infrastructure road work around the Obama Presidential Center that’s being built in Chicago. But don’t worry, because it’s going to be “transformational. “The Obama Presidential Center will be a transformational project for Chicago’s south side, and this state funding demonstrates Illinois’ commitment to honoring the legacy of Chicago’s favorite son and daughter,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel proudly announced in a statement Friday, referencing Obama and his wife, former first lady Michelle Obama.

While the former president and his wife admittedly grew up in Chicago, it remains unclear why Emanuel considers them to be “Chicago’s favorite son and daughter.” “The state’s $174 million investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent,” he reportedly added in another statement.

Where have Americans heard that word before? And Obama and his “fundamental transformation” is not a good combination. And locals are not lulled by Emanuel’s words. Says who? Certainly not local parks activists, who filed a lawsuit last month to block the construction of Obama’s presidential center on the basis that it’s a fraud. When the Obama Foundation first sought to lease parts of Jackson Park three years ago for its project, it convinced the city of Chicago that it planned to construct an official library to be managed by federal officials. But after receiving the lease, Obama suddenly decided to not include his official presidential library within the center. So instead of serving as an official presidential library with historic documents and archives from the Obama administration, the center will be a standard library run by the Obama Foundation for its own “self-determined use,” according to the suit. An activist against the project, Rev. B. Herbert Martin, Sr, excoriated the decision.

“The citizens of Chicago have been told repeatedly that we must make tough fiscal choices for our city. Our streets run red with blood from gun violence even as nonprofits dedicated to violence prevention are woefully underfunded. Schools have been closed in our most vulnerable communities due to lack of funding. Community members face eviction and displacement from their homes because of gentrification across our city,” he wrote in a poignant op-ed last month. He said there could be “no justice” spending this kind of money with all Chicago’s problems. But it just shows where the Obama and Democratic politicians priorities are – money to help the city or money to help Obama’s political ambition to build more leftists. Which do you think triumphed here? Hint: not the regular people of the city.”

The State of Illinois had officially approved $224 million for transportation projects related to various streets in Chicago’s South Side neighborhood where the President Center will be and where the former president grew up. while $199 million will be directly funded by the taxpayers of the great state of Illinois. It was made official on June 4th of this year when Governor Bruce Rauner signed a bill that passed through the state legislation which included $!74 million for the roadwork associated with Jackson Park for the Presidential Center. Another $50 million will be used to renovate an above-ground rail system that reaches up to two miles away for additional access to the Presidential Center.

The Washington Examiner reported,

“Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our partners in Springfield also saw the potential for what this means for all of Illinois. The state’s $174 million investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement about the groundbreaking ceremony for the metro stop Friday. Half of the $50 million Garfield Gateway rail project is funded through a 2016 Transportation Department grant, which provides for rail platform canopies, art, and new elevators and escalators at the station. However, Chicago and other Illinois state residents will still be on the hook for the remaining $199 million to improve infrastructure next to the privately owned Center.

The Obama Center project is still in the process of getting approvals, and a federal review is ongoing. A major local controversy has been over the proposed closing of Cornell Drive as it runs through Jackson Park. Federal agencies have also not approved the proposal nor issued permits allowing its construction on free parkland. Some local and national conservation and historical groups oppose the project because it is being proposed at Jackson Park, a park that’s almost as old as New York City’s Central Park and could be built on private land.

Local residents have repeatedly told city officials at town halls and press briefings they worry about being pushed out of their lower-income community because of the gentrification the center will undoubtedly bring. The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans. The Obama Foundation will also have to get approval from the Environmental Protection Agency under the National Environmental Policy Act and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. The first verification process will determine if the Obama Presidential Center would have “adverse effects” on Jackson Park. The State Historic Preservation Office will ask “official consulting parties” to provide opinions. The last decision regarding Jackson Parkland took place in 2012, when federal officials decided the land should not be touched.”

While presidents usually make a library of their own after leaving office, these financial figures are unseen and unheard of before. Especially given how impoverished Chicago has been and underfunded they are in combatting gang violence that runs rampant in the city. These people need their taxpayer dollars to be spent judiciously and correctly because they are already hemorrhaging money miserably. That money could be spent on community services, public libraries, public school, recreation centers, and gun violence prevention. Instead, it is being wasted on a presidential library for a president who has done nothing for Chicago but make the gang violence problem worse.

Share if you agree.

Share if you believe that taxpayer dollars are being wasted on this Presidential Center.

Share if you think that President Obama should not be scamming the American public out of their hard-earned money.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
