    WASHINGTON — At 5 a.m. Tuesday, with 618 days left in office, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle will announce that the Obama library, museum and presidential center will be in Chicago. Just after sunrise in Chicago, a video with the first couple will be released, and for the first time, the Obamas in their own words will comment on their post-presidential legacy projects. At noon, Martin Nesbitt, the Obama friend who is chairman of the Chicago-based Barack Obama Foundation, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who was Obama’s first chief of staff, will hold a press conference at the Gary...

    The Examiner ^ | 03/06.2015 | Steven Hoffman
    In Soviet Russia for a period of four years a great terror overcame the communist party in what later became known as the great purge. It was the culmination of years of social engineering ending in the consolidation of Stalin’s brand of communism having ultimate power. We are seeing something very similar happening in the democrat party today. After six years of “change” the Chicago progressives want to consolidate their power for the 2016 run at the presidency.

    The warmest day of the year so far brought hundreds of teens to Michigan Avenue on Saturday. Police were calling it “mob action.” CBS 2 has learned about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests. In all, 25 juveniles and three adults were charged. Many innocent shoppers and tourists became caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation. Hundreds of teens littered Michigan Avenue and State Street near Chicago.

    While on vacation in Hawaii this month, President Obama played golf with Allison Davis, a former business partner of Tony Rezko who also helped give Obama his start in the legal profession. Rezko is the former Obama associate and fundraiser who was convicted of corruption and fraud and currently sits in prison. Davis, who is male, partnered with Rezko on a series of government-funded low and mixed income housing development projects in Chicago. While Davis himself has never been charged with wrongdoing, a number of the projects were high-priced failures that resulted in poor living conditions for residents. According to...

The case involves New York lawyer Abdul Hassan, who was born in the South American country in 1974. Hassan argues it is discriminatory to not allow him to run for office. Responding to criticism of possible dual-loyalty issues, Hassan said in a radio interview that a person's place of birth should not determine his patriotism or presidential eligibility.

    To fully understand how Barack Obama and his Chicago thug politics work, you must know a little history of just how Obama weaseled his way into political office in the first place. The story of how Obama went from a street thug, rabble rouser, and “community organizer” to being the lackey of unrepentant murdering domestic terrorist William Ayers, to an Illinois State Senator, and then a United States Senator, and ultimately President, is a case study in lies, betrayal, and corruption....

    The House Financial Services Committee voted Wednesday to launch an investigation of the ShoreBank bailout, a scandal that was first revealed here at BigGovernment.com. Of the dozens of banks that have failed this year, only ShoreBank received help from Washington and Wall Street. The reasons: its connections to the White House, its close relationship with Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and its importance to the radical left.

More than a year into the Obama administration, with healthcare yet to be reformed, Wall Street banks continuing to pay huge bonuses and Guantanamo Bay prison still open, that mood of hope has turned to disillusion.

    CHICAGO - Despite opposition from congressional Republicans, the Obama administration is signaling that a state prison in rural Thomson, Ill., will probably become the new home for scores of terrorism suspects now housed at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Officials from the White House, Defense Department and U.S. Bureau of Prisons spent two hours last week briefing more than a dozen members of the Illinois delegation in the office of Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill. To reassure skeptical Republicans, they emphasized security. Although the officials left open the possibility that another site could be chosen, participants...

    Before its portfolio of bad loans helped trigger the current housing crisis, mortgage giant Freddie Mac was the focus of a major accounting scandal that led to a management shake-up, huge fines and scalding condemnation of passive directors by a top federal regulator. One of those allegedly asleep-at-the-switch board members was Chicago's Rahm Emanuel—now chief of staff to President Barack Obama—who made at least $320,000 for a 14-month stint at Freddie Mac that required little effort.

    Washington has issued an APB for former Representative and putative Chief of staff for the Obama White House Rahm Emanual. Emanuel is 5' 7" tall, slight of build and has salt and pepper hair. He is known to cuss like a sailor. He was last seen on December 12th claiming he is getting "death threats" over his multiple meetings with corrupt Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Emanuel has been known to hang around with several unsavory characters in the past. It is commonly known that Emanuel has been a close confidant to impeached presidents and senators that have experienced intense sniper...

    Warning: If your neighbor’s got an “Obama ‘08” bumper sticker or lawn sign, you might want to double-check your door locks at night. The One has commanded his Purveyors of Change to go forth and proselytize to the unbelievers. And they’re not going to be knocking gently like Avon Ladies. Barack Obama, you see, is done fixing souls. It’s time to crack heads. Prodded by panicked Democrats to take off his white gloves, he issued a Call to Strong Arm to his legions of angry followers on Wednesday. Hope is out. Hellfire is in. Now, the same analysts who tut-tutted...
