  • Editorial: Who wins with a fancy pro golf course on South Side?

    Chicago S-T ^ | 16 jan 2017
    Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Park District are entranced by the prospect of a gorgeous, challenging golf course on the South Side near the yet-to-be-built Obama Presidential Center. It is a project with star appeal, beginning with Tiger Woods. But we have to ask: Does a fancy, professional-caliber golf course like this best serve Chicagoans, especially those on the South Side? Or is this about helping President Barack Obama improve his golf game?

    While the rants of raves of all the "Donald J. Trump" Democrat haters swirl around us...the big picture is being lost by both the the Democrat Party and their adoring media. The Democrat Party is committing self-inflicted political destruction. Fact is: the Democrat Party now has a very narrow and limited base. Gone are Blue Collar workers, gone are industrial union members, gone are Military folks, gone are all First Responders, Cops, Firemen, EMTs, AMTs, etc., gone are many African-Americans & Hispanics, who for the last eight years felt abandoned by POTUS, Obama, the CBC, the NAACP, gone are millions...

    Coretta Scott King said that the civil rights leader was faithful even though the FBI sent her tapes of him having sex with other women. Mrs King said without a confession from her husband she had a ‘gut feeling’ that their marriage was secure. Mrs King said she believed her husband was ‘no saint’ - but his but his faults were things like stepping out of his pajamas and leaving them on the floor.

    Eric Holder and Loretta E. Lynch have been perhaps the most flagrant partisans ever to hold the office of attorney general. Year after year, they rubber stamped whatever the Obama administration wanted to do, legally or otherwise. ... The attorney general, who heads the Justice Department, takes an oath to enforce federal laws and uphold the Constitution. We’re at the tail end of an administration in which the highest legal office in the land was weaponized along racial lines and openly attacked laws that the progressive left disliked, such as the federal Defense of Marriage Act and state voter ID...

    It was a bold statement, revolutionary even, surpassed only by the response of those in attendance, who, rather than pausing to reflect upon such an audacious assertion, wildly applauded. To be sure, these Obama enthusiasts would have ecstatically cheered anything he said at that moment. There was a full-fledged personality cult in motion at that time. The new president could have promised anything and received a giddy reaction. Obama himself admitted to serving as a kind of “blank screen” upon which Americans desiring some warm-and-fuzzy “hope and change” could project whatever they wanted. But even then, the words “fundamentally transform”...

    Beyond the melodrama of Sen. Hillary Clinton's tears-on-her-pillow triumph in New Hampshire and her gaming victory in Nevada lies the profoundly disturbing question of the Clintons' hidden record of suspected crimes. It's that very record which likely prompted Sen. John Kerry's sudden endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama just two days after Mrs. Clinton's first primary win, followed by two more supportive votes from ranking congressional Democrats. Their swift response was a clear sign that ranking Democratic colleagues are determined to derail Mrs. Clinton. Why? Because there exists a vault of information American voters are not aware of concerning the Clintons...

    President Obama says President-elect Donald Trump was an “unconventional candidate” who ran an “improvisational campaign.” But he doesn’t think that approach will work in the White House. In an interview that aired on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Obama was asked if it’s possible for Trump to run “an improvisational presidency.” “I don’t think so,” Obama said. “And so now he’s in the process of building up an organization. And we’ll have to see how that works. And it’ll be a test, I think, for him and the people that he’s designated to be able to execute on his vision.” But Obama...

    The closing arguments for the Obama years are arriving, and they aren’t helping the outgoing president. A case in point is a new book published this week, one that acknowledges “Obama’s supporters have experienced [his presidency] as a continuous disappointment.” Those supporters, and others, must have noticed that “for most of Obama’s term, wage gains were largely confined to the rich.” Or that “The administration’s planning in Libya clearly failed” or “It is certain that the actual outcome [of Obama’s Syria policy] was disastrous.” Even many of President Obama’s proudest achievements look about as enduring as April snow: “If there...

The move in the waning days of the Obama administration brought protests from the industry, which accused the agency of playing politics with...

But Obama remains intent on carrying on as if he will never leave power. He has pledged to continue to implement his goals for the next week and then to serve as the most outspoken ex-president in US history.

His farewell address offered few clues but his own books and those of his narrator confirm that the president is not exactly who he claims to be, the son of the Kenyan Barack H. Obama.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Friday that were it not for "the work" of President Barack Obama, the federal debt would have increased even more than the $9 trillion that it has increased over the eight years of his presidency. “Absent the work of President Obama this national debt would be even higher,” Pelosi said at her weekly briefing with reporters at the Capitol when asked about the increase in the federal budget under Obama. […] “As I’ve said over and over again: Show me your budget, show me your values,” Pelosi said. “And we see today...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was...

    It took three months for Gabriel Marin and his wife, Yansiel, to make it from their home in eastern Cuba to this migrant shelter in Panama’s capital. The goal was the United States and now the door that spurred their odyssey has slammed shut. Hundreds of people like Marin were stranded in transit in South and Central America on Thursday when President Barack Obama ended the so-called “wet foot, dry foot” policy that since 1995 has created a path to legal residency for thousands of Cubans who touched U.S. soil.

    The Environmental Protection Agency announced Friday it will not repay claims totaling more than $1.2 billion for economic damages from a mine waste spill the agency accidentally triggered in Colorado, saying the law prohibits it. The EPA said the claims could be refiled in federal court, or Congress could authorize payments. But attorneys for the EPA and the Justice Department concluded the EPA is barred from paying the claims because of sovereign immunity, which prohibits most lawsuits against the government. …

    Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, who heads the D.C.

Obama did this on purpose to destroy Trump’s first day in office and...

    The idea hatched from an off-the-cuff comment to her older brother. It was months before America would elect Donald Trump as its president, and already Bejidé Davis was worried that the country hadn’t appreciated Barack Obama. “I feel like no matter who wins in November, they are going to miss Barack Obama, and I think it will take him to leave office for people to see how great he was and how effective he was. I wish I could show him how grateful I am,” she recalled telling her brother. “Maybe I’ll just go to the White House and give...
