    German media report that the Anne Frank Daycare Center in a small German town will be renamed because migrant parents objected. The Jerusalem Post wrote [emphasis added]: The “Anne Frank” daycare center in Tangerhütte, which has been operating for generations, is set to undergo a name change. The decision to rename the daycare center, named after the most famous Jewish girl, has sparked controversy. The idea of changing of name of Frank, who tragically died in a concentration camp at the age of 15, has come from migrant parents, according to the daycare center’s director. “It is reported that parents...

    CHICAGO - Less than 3 miles from where former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama broke ground last week on their long-awaited presidential center on the South Side of Chicago, Tahiti Hamer lies awake at night thinking about the limited time she and her family have left in the neighborhood where she's lived her whole life. Following the announcement of the center in 2015, neighborhoods adjacent to the 19-acre planned site have seen skyrocketing rents and housing prices, and Hamer, 42, a single mother of three, is one of several facing displacement. Hamer, a teacher at a local...

    Former President Barack Obama has defended the location of his $500 million Presidential Center in Chicago, saying he’s “absolutely confident” it will benefit the community – amid complaints from locals that it will destroy a historic park and lead to gentrification. Following five years of legal battles, a federal review and gentrification concerns, Barack and Michelle Obama are expected to attend a celebratory groundbreaking Tuesday at the construction site of the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park on Chicago’s South Side. In an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America on the eve of the groundbreaking, Obama dismissed the criticism of...

    Former President Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are expected to break ground on the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago on Tuesday. The ceremony will be mostly virtual with limited in-person attendees as a result of the continued COVID-19 pandemic, according to The Chicago Sun-Times. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) are scheduled to attend the ceremony, the Sun-Times reported.

    The NFL released a commercial in support of Oakland Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib declaring that “football is gay.” “Football is gay,” the 30-second commercial begins. "Football is lesbian. Football is beautiful. Football is queer. Football is life. Football is exciting. Football is culture. Football is transgender. Football is queer. Football is heart. Football is power. Football is tough. Football is bisexual. Football is strong. Football is freedom. Football is American. Football is accepting. Football is everything. Football is for everyone." The NFL debuted the commercial on social media, tweeting that “the NFL stands by the LGBTQ+ community today and...

    From the presidential election of 2016 to the presidential election of 2020, from the huge, mostly peaceful protest on Jan. 6 to facing our second presidential impeachment of the same president, it is all too clear that we are becoming two cultures. We are becoming two cultures that occupy one land. The last five years have shown us all that there are two distinct cultures in America. From extremely partisan elections to election fraud to impeachments to possible Deep State criminality, it is hard to see how these two cultures can become one again. It is hard to see how...

    Earth Is a Whole Lot Closer to Our Galaxy's Supermassive Black Hole Than We Thought MICHELLE STARR 27 NOVEMBER 2020 It seems that Earth has been misplaced. According to a new map of the Milky Way galaxy, the Solar System's position isn't where we thought it was. Not only is it closer to the galactic centre - and the supermassive hole therein, Sagittarius A* - it's orbiting at a faster clip. It's nothing to be concerned about; we're not actually moving closer to Sgr A*, and we're in no danger of being slurped up. Rather, our map of the Milky...

    HYDE PARK - As a polarizing review of the planned Obama Presidential Center’s impact on Jackson Park nears the end of its third year, officials say an agreement to address any negative effects the center would have on the park is still a long way off. The so-called Section 106 review process, ongoing since 2017, has found the Obama Center’s construction would affect the historic nature of Jackson Park and the Midway Plaisance. To address these concerns, a draft agreement released July 9 calls for: - The city to file new National Register of Historic Places nominations for Jackson Park...
  • Repositioning Our Constitution - (We are not right wing!)

    Epoch Times ^ | 7/9/2020 | Steven Maikoski
    To The Editor: Years ago while the Republicans slept, the Democrats replanted our Constitution on the “right wing” of political measurements. It was the greatest political move in our nation’s history, for suddenly, the Constitution was an off-center philosophy, while radical, anti-constitutional politics became the middle ground, the mainstream. Our politics have followed that map, and the respect for our Constitution has nosedived. This incredible change resulted from simply moving the point of reference, the initial point. To illustrate the power of such a simple move, try it in your accounting. If you moved the decimal point in our dollars...

    **SNIP** Thanks to the pandemic, this hearing, before a three-judge federal appeals court panel, took place in part via telephone. It was recorded, which means you can still listen in, on the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit website. If you do, you’ll catch University of Chicago (and NYU) law professor Richard Epstein asking for a reversal of last year’s decision by District Court judge John Robert Blakey to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the activist group Protect Our Parks that sought to keep the Obama Presidential Center out of Jackson Park. And you’ll hear city attorney Benna Ruth...

    The Hill ^ | February 16, 2020 | J. T. Young
    With their center’s collapse, Democrats’ only hope of reconstituting it is by redefining the center. As the Democratic primary race moves leftward, the definitions of their candidates are moving right. It resembles a play in which we are expected to accept that the same actors have become different characters simply because of a costume change. When the 2020 Democratic field was taking shape a year ago, its spread was straightforward. Former Vice President Joe Biden was the establishment anchor, in a center-left, front-runner position. A couple of candidates were to his right – Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and former Rep....

    **SNIP** But recently, as development of the Obama center has faced obstacles and groundbreaking has been pushed back, Winston and some of her neighbors have begun to worry about the project’s fate. It faces a legal challenge in federal court over the use of park space for the center, and its chief local backer, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, recently announced he will not be seeking a third term as mayor. The result is anxiousness that has swept over some residents and communities on the South Side as they brace for a possible long wait, a bitter fight or even another grand...

    For months, the American press, aghast at Donald Trump's presidency, has been predicting a “blue wave” -- voters sweeping Republicans out office and instead electing a massive number of Democrats. There’s no question that Democrats and progressives despise Trump and are motivated to vote. But the left-wing media engages in what I call “progpaganda” -- the promotion of things they want to be true, endeavoring to shape events, and not merely report on them. This is the same group predicting with “99 percent certainty” that Hillary Clinton was going to win the White House. American voters appear to have gotten...
  • Should Democrats Embrace the Center or Abandon It?

    03/22/2018 5:15:39 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 27 replies
    Over the next six months, Democratic voters will be asked again and again whether their party’s candidates should hew to the center or move to the left. How voters answer that question will help shape the strategic plans of the dozen or more Democrats jockeying to beat President Trump in 2020. The intraparty tension has been simmering for months. Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, goaded party centrists last May when he declared abortion a Democratic litmus test: “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her...

    SIERRA VISTA – A Hispanic-owned construction company from Sierra Vista won one of four contracts awarded this week to build prototypes of President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, the second round of awards in as many weeks. KWR Construction Inc. was chosen by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to build a demonstration section of wall near San Diego using materials other than concrete. The award comes a week after CBP awarded four contracts for wall prototypes made of concrete, one of which was won by Fisher Industries of Tempe. Construction on all the prototypes should begin this fall...

    The Center for Security Policy on Monday called for the firing of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster for “disloyal and subversive behavior.” “If such misconduct is tolerated, Trump voters will have unknowingly elected President McMaster,” the Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney said in the statement. The organization said McMaster was undermining President Trump’s policies on “virtually every important foreign and defense policy issue,” and they commented on his recent purge of staff members who support the president’s agenda while keeping “large numbers of Obama holdovers” at the National Security Council. “No voter in this country – not one – elected...

    **SNIP** Reviews of Thursday’s op-ed weren’t much better, with Slate calling it “asinine,” for example. A noted a HuffPost headline read, “It’s 2017. Democrats Should Really Just Stop Taking Mark Penn’s Advice.” Dan Pfeiffer, a former top Obama aide, told me, “There can and should be a robust debate in the party about where we go in the post-Obama era. I don’t pretend to know the right path forward, but I know it isn’t a poll-driven, corporatist path.” Twitter users weren’t much kinder:
