Happy birthday, Dr. Jill Biden! You’re such a great friend—and even better wife, mom, and grandmother. Thank you for leading with such grace and empathy, and for being so authentically you.

Here’s to more laughing, more singing, and good times in the months and years ahead. 💕

It’s great to be back in my hometown and even better to spend some time with talented young people in Jackson Park. I’m proud of the Chicago Southside Wolfpack for a terrific season, and for their leadership off the field as well. Thanks for letting me give a guest pep talk!

Seeing all the attention around the one year anniversary of #GeorgeFloyd’s murder is so emotional. Yes, because of the loss of George Floyd. But also because it is a painful reminder that for many of you, this issue has mattered for one year. For others of us, Black Lives have never NOT mattered. I pray for a world where we all matter to each other all the time and forever more. Can’t stop, wont stop. Justice is not a fad. If you are new to this, happy one year awakening. Stay in the fight. If you are not new to this, sending love. Today and always. ✊🏾🙏🏾

George Floyd was murdered one year ago today. Since then, hundreds more Americans have died in encounters with police—parents, sons, daughters, friends taken from us far too soon. But the last year has also given us reasons to hope.

Today, more people in more places are seeing the world more clearly than they did a year ago. It’s a tribute to all those who decided that this time would be different—and that they, in their own ways, would help make it different.

When injustice runs deep, progress takes time. But if we can turn words into action and action into meaningful reform, we will, in the words of James Baldwin, “cease fleeing from reality and begin to change it.”

What Georgia’s Voting Law Really Does

The New York Times analyzed the state’s new 98-page voting law and identified 16 key provisions that will limit ballot access, potentially confuse voters and give more power to Republican lawmakers.

President Biden: "This is Jim Crow in the 21st Century. It must end. We have a moral and Constitutional obligation to act. I once again urge Congress to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to make it easier for all eligible Americans access the ballot box and prevent attacks on the sacred right to vote."

We are in the middle of an economic and public health disaster. Much-needed relief is on its way this week, but I know the bill can be a lot to wrap your head around. TOMORROW, I’m going live on Instagram to dive into the #AmericanRescuePlan. More info ⬇️

Bills and rent come monthly, relief should too. That’s why I’ve joined 33 other mayors, as part of Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, to call for recurring checks until the end of the pandemic. See our ad in this week’s TIME magazine. #onemorecheckisnotenough #makeitmonthly

Mike Gallagher, the 8th most recognized talk radio personality, in the U.S.A., is heard by over 2.25 million listeners weekly. He compiled and wrote the following essay entitled, "Obama: It was You." It was you who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner - "I am one of you." It was you who on ABC News referenced - "My Muslim faith." It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques. It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict- "I will stand with the Muslims." It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that - "I am a Muslim." It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi King. It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning America and professing Marxism. It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay. It was you who purposefully omitted - "endowed by our Creator " - from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence. It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ's Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the 'HOLY' Qur'an. It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America. It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center. It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House It was you who ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor. It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps. It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security. It was you who said that NASA's "foremost mission" was an outreach to Muslim communities. It was you who as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide. It was you who was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the White House tree. It was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists. It was you who refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist. It is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses. It was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults. It was you who funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas. It was you who ordered the United States Postal Service to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp. It was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help "empower" the British Muslim community. It was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country. It is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan. It is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal White House religious events. It was you who was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt's Hosni Mubarak, formerly America's strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians. It was you who appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was you who said this country is not a Christian nation.
