Obama’s 2019 message: 'We've got a lot of work to do'
The Hill ^ | 01/01/19 | Aris Folley
Posted on 1/1/2019, 4:17:18 PM by yesthatjallen

Former President Obama took to Twitter on Tuesday to share his New Year's message, saying "we've got a lot of work to do."

“In 2018 people stepped up and showed up like never before,” Obama said on Twitter.

“Keep it up in 2019,” he continued. “We’ve got a lot of work to do, and I’ll be right there with you. Happy New Year, everybody!”

Over the weekend, the former president also shared a few stories about some of the young leaders he said inspired him in 2018.

Obama ended his weekend series of tweets with the hope that his followers would also find inspiration in the stories he shared.

Leaders like Dejah Powell, who started an organization to bring health and wellness resources to communities on the South Side of Chicago, expanding food access and providing people the space and time to take care of themselves. — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 29, 2018

Leaders like Moussa Kondo and Sandor Lederer, who are each doing their part to fight corruption in their native countries of Mali and Hungary. Two people separated by continents but united in their pursuit of a more just, transparent society. — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 29, 2018

Leaders like Hong Hoang, who mobilized a youth-led movement to create a greener world after becoming the first Vietnamese person to visit Antarctica. — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 29, 2018

Leaders like Jonny Boucher, a Chicago native who, after losing too many friends and family to suicide, started a coffee shop to offer emotional support and guidance to those who might be in need of a little more than a strong cup of coffee to get through their day. — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 29, 2018

“I hope you find inspiration in the stories of Dejah, Moussa, Sandor, Hong and Jonny. Their journeys began with a decision to build the better future they wanted to see. The same is true for you,” he said.

Nobel Chief Finally Admits He Regrets Giving Obama the Peace Prize
Godfather Politics ^ | January 3, 2019 | Warner Todd Huston
Posted on 1/4/2019, 2:15:53 PM by Jyotishi

Anyone with half an ounce of brains immediately knew in 2009 that the Nobel Peace Prize committee was making itself look foolish for giving Barack Obama its top award even though he had only been president for about five minutes. Now the group's former secretary is admitting that the whole thing was a huge mistake.

Nobel's former secretary, Geir Lundestad, told the media that he thought giving Obama the award would spur him to great accomplishments. Instead, Obama did nothing of note over the next eight years.

Lundestad addressed the foolhardy decision in his recently published autobiography, according to the BBC: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34277960

Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr. Obama himself had been surprised.

"No Nobel Peace Prize ever elicited more attention than the 2009 prize to Barack Obama," Mr. Lundestad writes.

"Even many of Obama's supporters believed that the prize was a mistake," he says. "In that sense the committee didn't achieve what it had hoped for".

Lundestad that at first Obama greeted the situation with some good sense and initially said he did not even want to come pick the thing up.

But, soon enough his natural (and proper) embarrassment at being given the award for no logical reason was overcome by his arrogance and desire for personal adulation. He went and picked it up in person anyway.

Of course, Obama's detractors here in the U.S.A. widely made fun of the idiotic award.

As well they should. Obama did not deserve any "peace prize" before he had even fairly begun his first term. And eight years later, even Lundestad now admits that Obama did nothing even after two terms to deserve it.

It's about time they admit it.

-Geir Lundestad (a nay-saying blabbermouth),  served as the committee's influential, but non-voting, secretary from 1990 to 2015.

He has broken with the tradition of the secretive committee, whose members rarely discuss proceedings.



Other insights:
The book (his memoir) also gives other insights into the activities of the committee:

According to Mr Lundestad, Jonas Gahr Store, then Norway's foreign minister, tried in 2010 to dissuade the panel from awarding the prize to a Chinese dissident, fearing it would strain the country's relationship with Beijing. The Nobel committee ignored the warnings and honoured Liu Xiaobo.
Mr Lundestad also criticises Thorbjorn Jagland, who was the committee chairman for six years and is now a regular member. He said that as a former Norwegian prime minister, Mr Jagland should never have been appointed to the committee, which frequently stresses its independence.

In an amusing anecdote, Mr Lundestad relates how he found Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, who won the award in 1994, watching an episode of the Tom and Jerry cartoon in his hotel with other Palestine Liberation Organisation members. "It was made very clear that they intended to watch until the end," he said.
This year's Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on October 9.
