Anyone wonder why it was so critical for Obama to be crowned the Democratic Party nominee prematurely to June 3rd, and then his doing so himself on the evening of June 3rd after a day full of false AP and media reports that Clinton would be dropping out that evening? Simple answer is the International Olympic Committee was announcing the finalists for the 2016 Summer Games on June 4th and Chicago was one of the Cities in the running.
What does Chicago have going against them for hosting the 2016 Summer Games? Senator John McCain. Why?
This article by Inside The Games explains why:
CHICAGO officials will be desperately hoping that local boy Barack Obama wins the race to become the next President of the United States or they will face a major decision that could make-or-break their bid to host the 2016 Olympics.
As a Democrat senator for Illinois he was already a big supporter of their campaign and the election in November of the first black President in US history would help sprinkle a lot of star-dust over Chicago's efforts to become the first American city to host the Summer Games since the disastrous Atlanta Olympics of 1996, widely considered to be the worst since World War Two.
But if his Republican rival wins then Chicago know they have a major dilemma.
John McCain would receive an icy welcome from most International Olympic Committee (IOC) members if he were to show up in Copenhagen next year for the session which will vote on October 2 on where the 2016 Games should be awarded.
They are unlikely to forget that it was McCain who chaired the Senate Commerce Committee hearing into the IOC's affairs following the Salt Lake City bribery scandal, which erupted in 1998 when it emerged that the Utah city had bribed some IOC members to win the right to host the 2002 Winter Olympics.
McCain wrote to then IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch that he significant scepticism" that the IOC would enact "comprehensive and meaningful reform" - comments that earned him the undying hatred of many IOC members.
And lets not forget Hillary’s call for Bush to Boycott the Open Ceremonies in China this summer makes her not a wanted person around Chicago’s Olympic Daley Machine. Pushing the press to ask Obama of his stance and this well done piece by Uppity Woman on Obama: Obama's Boycott Dilemma: Genocide vs. Chicago Games 2016
Some other notes made by Chicago’s Olympic Committee Chairman Ryan giving more credence to things:
The village was always our linchpin," Chicago Olympic Committee Chairman Ryan said. Private developers are to finance an apartment-style Chicago village, which later would be resold as residential, commercial and hotel space.
"If Barack Obama is elected, it would put much more focus on Chicago and the state
of Illinois because people from around the world will understand he was the U.S.
senator from Illinois, and he has developed his professional career and his political career in Chicago and Illinois," Ryan said. "Obviously, that brings our community more to the forefront internationally."
As Chicago bid committee Chairman Patrick Ryan noted again on June 7th, the junior Democratic senator from Illinois will increase the city's profile because of his connections to Chicago.
In addition, Obama's presence in the White House would spare the bid committee the dilemma of whether to ask his presumed Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, to push the city's bid at the October, 2009 meeting in Copenhagen when the International Olympic Committee's members pick the 2016 host.
For Daley and the Chicago Combine, a McCain POTUS is not an option with Billions at stake, long-term power and control! For Obama, it is a nice payback to all his friends!
The final decision on which international city will host the 2016 Games will be made in October 2009. The other Cities in the running are Rio, Tokyo and Madrid.
So why is this got anything to do with Obama running and becoming POTUS?
It is all about the money stupid!
I put the shortest snippit of Obama's speech here because listening to him makes me want to vomit!
So what is at stake for Chicago holding the 2016 Games?
- Billions in Federal Dollars, for infrastructure work. Transportation alone is pegged at $27 Billion. After Salt Lake City won the 2002 Games, Fed funding for Transportation became much more available, according to the Chicago Tribune.
- Billions of dollars in renovations.
- Billions of dollars in tourist revenues.
- New facilities for Sports venues, which Daley claims to a tear down Olympic stadium, but that has been said before by host cities and never done.
- Mayor Daley insurance of staying in power for another 8 years.
- Obama access to deep pockets for 2012 POTUS re-election
Chicago’s has problems with infrastructure, transportation and many other problems an Olympic winning bid will easily be corrected with focused Federal funding. In Chicago, some of the areas selected for the Proposed Venues happen to connect to areas of the city that lands for development by Rezko/Auchi and a project Thomas Ayer spent over 30 years of his life and money trying to have fully developed, just to name a couple of areas will benefit greatly in value from new infrastructure.
A successful Olympic bid also benefits the University of Chicago and many other parts of the city that manage to have ties in significant ways to many of Obama’s campaign members, supporters and friends. Hotels, financing, construction, apartment dwellings, present Chicago facility upgrades alone benefit virtually all the members of the Chicago 2016 Olympic Directors and Committee members. A few beneficiaries are listed below:
The Board of Directors for the Chicago 2016 Olympic Bid include:
Patrick G. Ryan, Chairman and CEO Chairman of Aon Corp, who Bundled +$200,000 for Obama. Ryan is also part owned Chicago Bears, Chairman NWU Trustees
Valerie Jarrett, Vice Chair Chairperson of many organizations and personal friend of Michelle Obama
Miles White, Vice Chair Director Of Tribune Co.
John W. Rogers, Jr. founded Ariel Capital Management, Ariel is a +$100,000 Bundler for Obama
William Scherr VP Goldman Sach’s, Goldman Sach’s is a +$400,000 Bundler for Obama
A few of the other Committee Members with bundled amounts for Obama:
Mellody Hobson - Ariel Capital Management Inc +$250,000
Robert Blackwell - Blackwell Consulting Services +$100,000
Louis Carr Pres. Media Sales Black Entertainment Television (BET) +$50,000
Frank Clark - Commonwealth Edison +$200,000

Desiree Glapion Rogers - Peoples Energy Corporation +$100,000
through their companies, holdings and investments. Every Chicago Philanthropy organization is also represented on the Committee.
People also question Obama’s tremendous and ridiculous support from the media, lead by NBC. NBC happens to be paying for the Games coverage this year in China over $790 million to have the rights, NBC’s rights end after the 2010 Winter and 2012 Summer Games costing NBC $2 Billion. The 2014 Winter and 2016 Summer Games could cost well in excess of $2.25 Billion for the TV rights alone. Having the Games in Chicago gives NBC or the winning media outlet the most effective impact for the dollar revenues by having the Games in Chicago.
Chicago Hidden Agenda:
In the Chicago 2016 proposal it estimates the Games to run about $5 Billion (joke estimate), which anyone who has lived through prior Games knows this is a phoney price tag. The London 2012 Games with infrastructure costs is tagged right now at $18 Billion and growing even though London has a good infrastructure in place. The 2004 Games exceeded $11 Billion and the 2008 Games are estimated are unknown, but by the time comes for the 2016 Games, the costs could easily exceed $50 Billion, when infrastructure is added in. Additional money potential to investors and those within the circle of profiting from the Games in Chicago are in the $10’s of Billions. The Bundling for Obama’s campaign for POTUS, aside from other agendas they have going on the side is the Chicago Way, the lottery and you have to pay to play! What Chicago also loses having McCain as POTUS is the Chicago Way to IOC members, known as bribery.
Having Chicago chosen as the 2016 Summer Games sight means the dirty Chicago Combine will be flush with money for the next 8 years, thus providing the DNP a Hope Chest of money to keep hold of power. Money coming from Federal coffers.
Obama Campaign Agenda:
Moving complete control of the DNP election controls to Chicago gives Obama’s campaign total control over every aspect of Congress elections, to fill it with people who will forward the agenda of money to Chicago for the 2016 Summer Games with a blank check coming from Federal coffers. Obama doesn’t have a need for Federal financing for the GE, with so much money at stake, the “Chicago Pay to Play” will make sure his coffers are full, especially against John McCain. After all, they will get it back from the Feds if Obama is elected simply in higher 2016 Summer Games cost over-runs!
Gets to play boss and President for years and enact his personal agendas.
Yes, it is all about the money STUPID!
Obama’s treatment towards women can be simply explained by one person, Chicago Olympic Committee Vice-Chair Valerie Jarrett. She sits atop the U of Chicago Hospital Board, on the U of Chicago Board (yes that place Michelle got the big job and triple pay increase) and is a close friend of Michelle Obama. You know the one that supposedly Barack interviewed when Michelle was going for a job on Mayor Daley’s team in 1991. Do not kid yourself this woman garnishes more power in Obama’s life than even Michelle Obama does. Is it any wonder Barack is frustrated with woman, when two dominate his life so much?
When Thomas Ayers was alive, he was a big promoter of developing the South Loop rail yards of Chicago. His investments in it are unknown due to everything been tied up the Family Trust, but no one spends years working on something without having an invested interest in it. So developing the area with new infrastructure increases the value of the Trust. When Thomas Ayers passed on in June of 2007, there was no mention of Bill Ayers et al donating the inheritance to any social causes, so much for Bill Ayers social causes, aside from his own!
Thus having an Obama POTUS gives Ayers a double win situation, by having a POTUS to forward his ill-fated Marxist causes and reap the rewards of his fathers investing and dreams of developing the Southside lands. So is Ayers a danger to the country? Even more so, because the man with no guts, Bill Ayers who's just a ton of BS rebel talk, will have plenty of money to command some power behind his failed attempts at social reforms. Even worse, is having as his partner Dohrn, the real balls of the two (like Michelle Obama is to Barack) will be the one to keep an eye on based upon her prior actions and never swaying beliefs!
Sometimes the obvious is not realized, but when it involves the dirty
politics of Chicago, everything needs to be realized! After all, it
is the Chicago Way!
