Nobody on earth has lectured the American people more than Obama.
He’s had something to say about everything we’ve done.
He told us that we didn’t build our businesses, and he also thinks he should decide when we’ve all made “enough money.”
Of course, none of these things apply to Obama. He can make all the money he wants and everything he’s accomplished, he owns.
Obama expects you and me to “cap” what we make, and share the wealth with everyone else and give others credit for everything we’ve done.
And don’t forget the environment – no matter what, we must do our part to save the earth, and minimize our carbon footprint…Meanwhile, Obama owns massive sprawling mansions that use 1000 times more resources than we do…and one house sits on the water…imagine all the wildlife that his lavish home displaced…
And speaking of all this hypocrisy, some disturbing new details have come out about Obama’s OPPULENT “Library.”
It turns out that Obama’s posh new building – which can’t actually be called a “library” because it’s far too grand for that – will come at a very high cost to working class people and the environment. 800 trees are being chopped down to make way for Barry’s castle, and the regular hard-working people of Chicago will actually suffer because of his excellency’s new EGO-inspired building.
Daily Wire reported that Obama is using his birthday to raise funds for his planned “presidential center,” a monument to the man and his legacy that is scheduled to break ground as soon as this month on prime parkland in Chicago. Critics say that the project has brazenly violated the policies and philosophies that Obama spent his presidency pushing on others, in ways that will permanently harm the environment and the city of Chicago.
Obama wants to cut down nearly 800 trees and erect four buildings on nearly 20 acres inside Chicago’s Jackson Park, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and includes waterways connecting to Lake Michigan. The proposed buildings include a 235-foot museum tower, a conference center, an athletic center, a library, and a 400-car garage.
Though former presidents often create presidential “libraries,” this is not a library because it is far more elaborate than what is permitted under regulations governing presidential libraries.
A group of Chicago residents concerned about the natural environment called Protect Our Parks has taken to the courts to attempt to stop the planned groundbreaking on August 16, represented by lawyer and professor Richard Epstein. Judges have so far ruled against them.
The piece goes on to say that regular people in Chicago will face significant hardship as a result. Major thoroughfares will have to be closed during construction. Other roads will have to be reconfigured at a cost of $175 million, Epstein wrote, and commuter traffic redirected near residential neighborhoods.
The Obama Foundation had assets of nearly half a billion dollars in 2019, according to tax filings…and it bolsters inequality
Chicago has no shortage of overwhelmingly black, economically depressed areas that the first black president could invigorate by buying affordable land there and building his elaborate property.
Epstein said his group has identified a 10-acre site nearby that would be “superior in every relevant respect” in a poor neighborhood well-served by mass transit.
“They could purchase that land from the city for a market rate without having any of these environmental reviews and so forth, but they steadfastly refuse to do this” because they “want the Park Avenue address” because of “vanity… They would like this thing to be seen from the lakefront,” Epstein told Glenn Loury.
Instead, Obama has been dead-set on building in the prestigious, tony lakeside area — the Chicago equivalent of Martha’s Vineyard, where he also has property.
And not only is Obama killing a forest of trees, but he’s also interfering with bird migration routes.
It’s just more “Rules for thee, not for me” garbage from the Dems.
Democrats have instituted complex environmental reviews which are often used to stymie development such as oil and gas pipelines. But those same reviews did not slow down the Obama center.
How convenient, right?
