Obama Presidential Library Cost Skyrockets – It Is Going To Cost Barry’s Foundation At Least $700 Million

Original Article

Posted By: hershey, 6/11/2021 12:09:55 PM

The saga of former President Obama’s library has been going on for years. At one point, the library was encountering legal troubles. It seems the builders were going to go right through a historic section of Chicago. Some criticized the library for not containing certain documents from the Obama administration. Those documents would not be available in physical format, but only digital.

Comments:

Ha ha...so much money for an outhouse...and if the murders keep up there won't be anyone to PAY to get in...

FTA: "His foundation has already raised $900 million (from whom, I wonder), but they want even more money. An additional $400 million is expected to be raised from Chicago." Condoms and lube and towel boys don't cost nearly that much; something seems sketchy.

So, he got permission to cut the heart out of the Olmstead park to build the thing? I don't care which one, presidential libraries are an abomination, a sinkhole for bribes, a suitcase of sinecures for toadies, and a monument to ego. We have a National Archive - that's where all that stuff should be. FDR started this pyramid of self-love garbage, shame on every single president who has followed suit.

Originally $500 million, now at least $700 million. What else would one expect from any project proposed by someone from the government? Especially an liberal Democrat! When has anything a Democrat ever cost what they have said that it would? Name one Democrat (any government project really) the ever came in under budget. The Obama Shrine will cost even more since it is in Chicago and the Biden inflation problem has raised the cost of building materials so much.

So---no actual documents will be stored there, just digital representations which can be easily altered to suit his ego and "legacy." What happens to the original documents----the shredder after they've been scanned? Is it legal to destroy gov't documents?

That's expensive for a library without a book in it. Blacks don't read so they won't go there unless there's a giant bronze of the jug eared bozo or something in the 'library' (lieberry) for free. Sorry this is like a New Jersey tunnel that went over budget and no one knows where the funds went.

The bill was ostensibly marketed as a “safe storage” measure to keep unauthorized individuals from accessing firearms.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed universal background check gun control Thursday, criminalizing private gun sales conducted apart from an FBI background check. The legislation, H.R. 8, sponsored by Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA), passed by a vote of 227 to 203. H.R. 8 would expand retail point-of-sale background checks so as to cover private points-of-sale. This will criminalize an individual who sells a 5-shot revolver to a lifelong neighbor, unless that neighbor first undergoes a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) check, conducted by the FBI.

Since Election Day 2020, President Donald Trump has claimed, without evidence, that there were some shenanigans in the presidential election — voter fraud, dead people voting, and the like. Social media was having none on it. In a 24-hour period between mid-morning Thursday and Friday, Twitter censored six of Trump’s posts. The posts weren’t immediately visible. Instead, there was this note attached by Twitter: “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”   Corrections*

Gov. DeSantis Introduces ‘Anti-Mob’ Legislation To Allow Floridians To Shoot Rioters And Looters 20 replies
Posted by hershey 11/11/2020 3:06:05 PM Post Reply
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has proposed an “anti-mob” bill that would allow residents to shoot rioters and looters who target businesses following nationwide unrest. The law would expand the state’s self-defense law, which currently forbids “the use of force in defense of property,” by increasing what constitutes a “forcible felony,” according to the Miami Herald. DeSantis seeks to make looting or “interruption or impairment” of a business such a felony, thereby justifying deadly force to prevent it, the local outlet reported.

Suozzi, who sits on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, is drafting what he called a 'patriot tax.'It would impose one-time tax of 2.5% on wealth above $50 million and a 5% surcharge above $100 million.At that rate, Bezos, the country's wealthiest person, would face a payment of almost ten billion dollars on his wealth of about $195 billion.

The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility.

It is now clear, after the appointment of new attorney general, Merrick Garland, that he must, not may, appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden in public corruption matters that may substantially involve his father. This is especially clear now that it is known, contrary to his fervent denials, that Joe Biden met with Hunter’s corrupt Ukrainian and Russian clients at least once at Café Milano in Washington, D.C. There are likely more meetings, but once is enough. He also met at length in the White House with Hunter’s partner, Devon Archer, as the two were pitching their services to the corrupt Burisma Holdings,

The assessment, dated June 4, said the involvement of QAnon adherents in the storming of the U.S. Capitol “will continue to act as a catalyst for some to begin accepting the legitimacy of violent action.”(Snip) QAnon originated in late 2017 and

American media is so infected with leftism that it’s ideologically slanted to the point of tipping over and it’s highly possible that the media doesn’t even know it. It doesn’t have the ability to look at itself critically, and we get very real moments where the media asks Democrats what it can do to better help them along while on air. The media in other countries can see it, though, and Australia’s, in particular, can’t help but dedicate a segment to it.

There is something you need to know because it is of overwhelming importance to America’s survival as a constitutional democratic republic: The Biden administration is moving inexorably to making it a crime to oppose Biden and the Democrat party’s policies. Attorney General Merrick Garland is organizing a massive task force to hunt those illusory “White supremacists,” who just happen to be Trump supporters. Moreover, the federal charging documents against many of those being held for trespassing in Congress reveal that some of the people most active in planning January 6 and encouraging others to act were FBI agents or informants.
