We profiled these fellas from obama’s neck of the woods back in October. So here is a local perspective on how the black community is feeling in Chicago.
NBC Chicago reported in May of last year that The University of Chicago is facing community opposition in its battle to claim Barack Obama’s presidential library.
UIC sits in the center of a gun violence epidemic on the South Side and has shown that it does not value black life, by refusing to open a trauma center and save the lives of the young black men dying at their door.
The university “has long neglected the needs of black and brown communities on the South Side, including denying access to life saving trauma care, so why should they get the honor and prestige that comes with the Obama Library?” said high school senior Victoria Crider in a statement.
Today RP shows this protests continue. The community wants its neighbordhhod to better serve them, then this library/
Protesters spoke out at a hearing held to discuss turning over parkland on the South Side of Chicago to the University of Chicago to build the Obama Library. They expressed the need for U of C to build an adult trauma center to serve the black community on that side of the city before they consider building the library. An attendee posted footage from the hearing on Facebook.
Progress Illinois reported on the opposition to the library.
“We are sending the message that the U of C does not deserve the honor of the Obama library until they recognize the value of black lives by providing trauma care on the South Side,” Veronica Morris-Moore with Trauma Care Coalition said in a statement before last night’s event. “The U of C is proposing massive redevelopment of Woodlawn and Washington Park, but they are still failing to respond to basic community demands.”
This is from Dec. 2012, but this is what we should do @ every mosque, in every town…

“The President’s unauthorized program known as deferred action is also terminated— no new applicants are allowed, and holders of a current deferral cannot get those renewed when they expire.
Last night I went on @myfoxal to talk about my bill to defund the President’s executive amnesty overreach
Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed the “Aderholt Amendment” to defund the President’s amnesty orders within the Fiscal Year 2015 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations bill.
“The amendment that I sponsored is an important first step of this new Congress,” said Congressman Robert Aderholt, who, prior to serving as Chairman of Agriculture Appropriations subcommittee, chaired the Department of Homeland Security subcommittee. “It is important that we pass a conservative bill in the House so that the Senate can start from a position of strength.
“Senator Jeff Sessions has been of tremendous help throughout the process. No one has worked harder on this issue than Jeff, and his efforts have been invaluable. Senator Sessions has his work cut out for him in the Senate, but it has been my intent all along for the House to provide him with a good, conservative bill to work from.”
Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) spoke to Tucker Carlson on Fox & Friends about the need for someone to step up and run against Speaker Boehner in this new Congress. He echoed what many House Members are saying that there needs to be new leadership, not just the status quo and he is happy to accept the challenge.
You are not Mary’s cause and you are certainly not her charity. You are just a vote – nothing less, nothing more. You are just a means to an end, so that she remains in power.

Sounds like now…but we have NO leader!
Watch the video and listen to Boone Cutler, Warfighter, Author and FOX News (KKFT RENO) on-air personality lay out why YOU need to be a part of the Warfighter Rights’ Movement!
We need all the supporters that are committed to ending discrimination against Warfighters that stems from PTSD-phobia and long standing prejudice by courts, law makers, landlords, employers and more.
We don’t care about politics. Politicians that support us must agree to “give no quarter to the corrupt”.
The Warfighter Rights’ movement is the cause for those that wish to save the leaders that save America.
Watch the video and follow the detailed instructions to make your voice heard!
SUBJECT: Warfighter Rights Movement
I am contacting to inform you of the Warfighter movement. This is a movement that I am proud to be a part of. We stand here today united to end Warfighter discrimination and stop PTSD phobia. As you have seen, the issues with the Veteran Administration has been substandard for decades.
However, this is not the only issue we as Warfighters are facing in America today. Routinely our Warfighter community is discriminated against in the areas of employment, housing and whenever we stand before a judge.
As your constituent, I am respectfully bringing this to your attention so you may appropriately support this movement. As part of the plan we will seek to take action in the courts through class action law suits and to propose legislation to end the discrimination of warfighters in America.
American Warfighters are comprised of 23 million strong veterans with supports plus the additional numbers of those currently serving on active duty military and their families.
In the 1960’s Americans rallied to end discrimination with the Civil Rights movement. During that same timeframe the returning Warfighters were chastised and shamed by the very people they fought for. We continue to see this today as another generation returns from answering the call to arms of this nation. The method of discrimination is different and in some ways more secretive and more underhanded.
We will not allow this to continue to happen to the present day Warfighters. This is the era of the Warfighter Rights movement. Rather than complain with excessive rhetoric, we seek your assistance to support our effectiveness. We want all of our representatives at our backs. We don’t care about politics.
Politicians that support us must agree to “give no quarter to the corrupt”.
Expect to see us protest and rally in large numbers across the country. If you have questions or want to be part of the movement contact this email address. firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
I come from the 60s when we protested mightily. The apathy and us getting to comfortable in a squishy life that doesn’t want to ‘rock the cradle’, has made it where although we are angry, we do nothing but complain. We need this movement, we need to mass in numbers on D.C. until feckless politicians do something! We need it to be continuous.
I was an original Freeper. I so admired when I heard the story of Jim Robinson, a VietNam Vet who drove from CA. to D.C. and sat by the WH house gate in his wheelchair to protest.
Whats happened to us since 1998 Patriots? This administration has decimated our country, our Vets! Will you step up? ~ JP

Bob Quast, a longshot candidate, a former contractor for the U.S. Army, is an independent candidate.
“If you are the sexual predator and sociopath who murdered my sister Lynette and you come to my front door to do harm to my girls, I’m going to use my Glock. To blow your balls off.”
There’s A Very Sad Story Behind This Unusual Campaign Ad from the The Toledo Blade:
In 1999, Thomas Craft pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the brutal murder of his wife, Lynnette, who is Quast’s sister. Police found pieces of Lynnette’s body scattered across the Ann Arbor, Mich., area. But under a plea deal, he was released from prison in 2011. He is now under supervision at a halfway house in Ohio.
At approximately 6:30 p.m., a Washtenaw County sheriff’s detective called Swanton police saying he was investigating a possible homicide. Pieces of a body, which he believed belonged to the missing Swanton woman, had been found. The detective said they found legs, from the knee down, and feet, at a McDonald’s on Zeeb Road in Michigan’s Scio Township near Dexter.
Among the trash and body parts were clothing and an Ohio driver’s license belonging to Mrs. Craft.
Barack Obama is terrified of Mia Love.
Why? Because she has the chance to become the first female African-American Republican member of Congress.
And that means she is a grave threat to Barack Obama’s “GOP war on women” campaign nonsense!
We here at JUSTPiper endorsed Mia in 2012. We still support her run for Congress today.
What we need right now in Washington are tough, consistent, tested leaders who put the American people first. For too long Congress has run up trillion dollar deficits, made promises it cannot keep, and failed to balance the budget. A change is needed, and that’s why I am running to represent Utah’s 4th congressional district in Congress. As the mayor of my city I have brought coalitions together to balance budgets, cut wasteful spending, keep taxes low, and limit the size and scope of government. I will do the same in Washington.
Mia lost her race for Congress in 2012 because the liberals smeared her personally.
They called her parents illegal aliens. They lied about her record. They bombarded her with hate-filled negative ads.
We must not let that happen again! America needs this incredible lady in Congress!
Conservative StrikeForce has stepped forward and endorsed Mia Love in her race for Congress. We are going to support her campaign financially and are planning a full scale independent expenditure effort to make certain she wins this election.
Conservative StrikeForce fought very hard for Mia in 2012, and we are going to much more in 2014 if you will help us.
I expect that the national Obama political organization will do anything it can to beat Mia Love this year. Frankly, they have no choice.
Mia Love represents a grave threat to the Democratic Party’s entire political strategy.
They want to make conservatives look like women-hating racists.
However, this tactic can’t work if the Republican Party manages to elect a true conservative like Mia Love to Congress!
So, the liberals will have to do whatever it takes to destroy Mia Love.
In 2012 Nancy Pelosi poured money into Mia Love’s race to fund negative ads.

Mia Love needs our help. She can’t beat back all the attacks coming her way from every national leftist group in the nation all by herself.
