Supreme Court refuses to block construction
of the Obama Presidential Center

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 8/20/2021 1:51:42 PM

Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett refused Friday to block the construction of the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago as demanded by an environmental group. The groundbreaking for former President Barack Obama‘s namesake library and presidential archives center began earlier this week, but Protect Our Parks, an environmental advocacy group, asked the high court to stop the construction. The group lost multiple requests in lower courts to halt the construction of the Obama center because it is located in a public park, Jackson Park on Chicago‘s South Side.(Snip)The activists argued that 800 trees would be destroyed around the park and affect birds.


That's our gal, the notorious ACB, and that's Boy Barry, a humble man of the people who demands a billion-dollar liberry (lie-bury) for people who don't know how to read.

That’s fine. Let Obama and the SCOTUS and the City of Chicago own this debacle. Works for me. Sometimes it takes a disaster like this ill-conceived, overhyped, mis-located (due to O-Ego) great pyramid to get The People really riled up.

I strongly agree with #9. The arguments advanced by these environmentalists are the same ones they use to delay reasonable highways or oil and gas pipelines, etc., from being built. They litigate these stupid issues long after environmental impact statements have been completed, then finally agree to settle if the developer/pipeline company, etc., agrees to pay their attorneys' fees for all the crap they've put the developers through. It's good to see these phony arguments dismissed by the SCOTUS, even if their current opponent happens to be the Odious Obie. Who's going to want to visit this "library" if they risk being shot in a Chicago drive-by while they're walking there?

I have to agree with Barrett about this. Why should federal courts decide if Chicago can cut down trees in a city park? Unless some state laws are being ignored or some other restrictions apply to the site. I haven't read of any.

Desperate gay men in Afghanistan are living in terror and pleading for deliverance from the “nightmare” of Taliban rule, according to reports. “As soon as the Taliban know that I am a gay man, they will kill me without even thinking about it,” 36-year-old “Sayed” told Business Insider Saturday. In less than a week, he said, the mood in Afghanistan’s underground gay community went from clandestine freedom to outright panic. “We cannot go out because we are just scared for our lives,” said “Ghulam,” 21, who dropped out of his college classes and has closeted himself at home amid the Taliban takeover. Homosexuality has been technically illegal

Human rights organizations are concerned that the Taliban’s newly gained control of the Afghan government will lead to “instances of extreme violence directed at members of the LGBTQI+ community in Afghanistan,” while LGBTQ Afghans say that now fear they can be “killed on the spot.” The Taliban is a religious-political movement and military organization known to enforce extreme Islamic ideals, including Sharia law. As per Article 130 of the Afghani Constitution, courts could potentially rely on Sharia law to impose the death penalty for zina (adultery).(Snip)Just last month, a judge in central Afghanistan told the German newspaper Bild that the gay men should be crushed to death

Infowars host Jonathon Owen Shroyer has been charged with misdemeanors related to the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol after the FBI said it found video from the riot showing him inside a restricted area. The “War Room with Owen Shroyer” host was accused Friday of knowingly entering any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Federal prosecutors do not allege that Mr. Shroyer merely entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, but rather that he breached the building’s grounds and made it to the top of the stairs on the east side of the complex.

Gov. Cuomo’s daughter used an unmarked police SUV to take herself and her belongings from the state’s Executive Mansion, a possible misuse of state resources, sources said. Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo, 23, was spotted last week lugging a large cardboard box and bags out of the Albany residence days after her father announced he was resigning. She placed the goods in a black SUV, which a source identified as a state police vehicle, and was driven away.(Snip)Mayor de Blasio was similarly criticized for having his security detail help his daughter move from Brooklyn to Gracie Mansion in 2018.

A landmark study on how to curb cheating has been retracted after nearly a decade and the prominent professor whose team produced the paper is himself accused of cheating and relying on faked data. Dan Ariely, a professor of psychology and behavioral economist at Duke University, rose to prominence with his 2012 study that found people would be less likely to cheat and lie if they signed an honesty declaration at the top of a form before answering questions.

Twenty years after the 9/11 attacks, U.S. intelligence documents reveal 229 “rehabbed” former Gitmo detainees have returned to terrorism and killing Americans—and an alarming 66% of them have not been recaptured and are still at large. Meanwhile, President Biden is quietly freeing more of these terrorist suspects from the Guantanamo Bay prison, all to fulfill his old boss’ pledge to permanently close the facility in Cuba.(Snip)According to the December 2020 declassified report by the Office of National Intelligence, a total of 229 of the 729 detainees released from Gitmo have reengaged in terrorist activities, including conducting and planning attacks and recruiting and funding terrorists.

This is the shocking moment an Orthodox Jewish man is punched in the face by a passer-by in a 'racist attack' that left him unconscious—just hours after a child was attacked nearby. Footage shows the 64-year-old victim being knocked to the floor while walking in broad daylight down a street in Stamford Hill, London, at 8.30pm on Wednesday. A separate video taken on the same evening is alleged to show a Jewish child being 'viciously punched' in the face less than an hour and a half beforehand.

The U.S. Embassy issued a stern warning to Americans on Saturday not to go to Kabul airport—which is the only way out of the country—because of 'security threats' outside its gates a day after President Biden vowed to bring citizens and Afghan allies home. 'Because of potential security threats outside the gates at the Kabul airport, we are advising U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative to do so,' the Embassy warning says. The warning was issued less than 24 hours after Biden said there was 'no indication'

Jim Geraghty’s written two posts today making the case that something is up. I’m not sold on his first post. His second is more persuasive. The first post argues that Biden’s chat with George Stephanopoulos was filled with enough contradictions and awkward stammering that, paired with his low visibility lately, we might reasonably conclude that his health has become an issue. Whether you agree comes down to a gut check on how you felt about the interview. I didn’t see it as out of the ordinary for Biden.

Incredibly cynical and depressing. And quite possibly correct. “The public opinion is pretty damn clear that Americans wanted out of the ongoing war and don’t want to get back in. It’s true today and it’s going to be true in six months,” said one Biden ally. “It isn’t about not caring or being empathetic about what’s going on over there, but worrying about what’s happening in America.”… White House officials believe Americans’ horror over graphic images of the chaos in Kabul and pleas from Afghans who fear they will be killed

During the presidential campaign, the Biden administration introduced a new word into the lexicon: a “lid.” His campaign has called a lid countless times without explanation, meaning it was cutting off all media appearances for that day. Joe Biden went on vacation to Camp David just before Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and gave no public remarks on the matter until more than 24 hours after the fall of Kabul. That was a speech Biden delivered from the White House Monday, after which he took no questions from the media. He went silent again, then delivered another speech on Wednesday, this time on COVID.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks it is interesting to look back and see how American culture has changed in that two-decade time span. Back then mainstream culture (sorta) rallied around God and country against our enemy, the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Today the culture sees those same people that believe in God and country as bad or worse than the Taliban.
