Amy Coney Barrett to decide whether SCOTUS will take up challenge to Obama presidential library construction

Trump-nominated Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett will determine the fate of Obama Presidential Library as a conservation group has filed a motion to stop its construction at the location of a Chicago park.

Local group Protect Our Parks wrote in a June statement, “We are deeply concerned that construction associated with the “groundbreaking” in and around Jackson Park puts the historic and environmental elements in the park in imminent danger and may also derail the ability for the Court to thoroughly examine the legal arguments outlined by the Plaintiffs in our lawsuit.”

It added, “Moreover, any removal of trees or destruction of roadways, vistas, and the landscape in Jackson Park will be irrevocable, which is why we have asked the Court to stop such activity forthwith pending a full adjudication of the merits of our complaint.”

The Blaze reported, “Residents near the proposed site at Jackson Park on the South Side of Chicago also fear that the massive $700 million project will lead to gentrification and higher rents.”

The report cited a WBBM-TV interview in which Devondrick Jeffers of STOP Chicago said, “When new developments come to underserved communities, usually it means displacement, disenfranchisement for the residents who are already living there.”

An NBC News report on Tuesday noted, “A federal judge and the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, however, recently declined to stop construction. ”

It added, “Work on clearing the way for the Obama Presidential Center began Monday.”

Unless Barrett intervenes, the library appears to be moving forward with construction. If she does intervene, many will claim the move is political, leading to a likely lose-lose situation in the ruling.

Start making money this time… Spend more time with your family & relatives by doing jobs that only require you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $65,000 to $70,000 a month. I’ve started this job and earn a handsome income and now I am exchanging it with you, so you can do it too.

He doesn’t need a library. What has he accomplished as president? Nothing to brag about…only disasters like Obama-care, a terrible Iran-Nuclear deal, the rise of ISIS when he withdrew troops precipitously a la Joe Biden and he sowed division in America with his constant ranting about imagined “racism”.

And he let the leader of Taliban out of Guantanamo as a trade. He is not a U.S. Citizen so he shouldn’t have been President in the first place.

He divided the country. He isn’t a United States citizen so he shouldn’t have been President!! And he has been helping Biden destroy our country so NO, HE DOESN’T DESERVE A LIBRARY DEDICATED TO HIM!!! As a matter of fact; the Bush, Clinton and other libraries named after Democrat Presidents need to be renamed!!
