  • Former President Barack Obama talks with Caffe Paradiso owner Young Jeon during a surprise campaign stop with Illinois Democratic gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker and his running mate state Rep. Juliana Stratton Friday Sept. 7 2018 after speaking

"To all the young people that are here today, there are now more eligible voters in your generation than in any other, which means your generation now has more power than any other to change things". "In two months we have a chance to restore some sanity to our politics".

Obama's speech marked his return to the campaign trail in an effort to rally Democrats ahead of November's midterm elections.

Former US President Barack Obama participates in a political rally for California Democratic candidates during a event in Anaheim, California, US Saturday. Last month, he endorsed nearly 100 Democratic candidates across the country.

The Fox & Friends hosts this morning reacted to Obama's big speech yesterday going after Trump and the Republican party, with Ed Henry saying, "Barack Obama decided he wants to make the midterms about 'me'".

While in his speech, Obama did not bash Trump directly, he did make some digs that could only be attributed to the current president. "He's just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years". Fox released an excerpt on Saturday. "You've got to vote".

Alibaba founder Jack Ma announces retirement
The co-founder of $420the billion internet company, Jack Ma , has announced that he will be retiring from Alibaba on Monday. As Beijing has increased its involvement in the private sector, Ma has shifted what he has said about China's government.

Following a fiery appearance in his home state of IL, former President Barack Obama brought a softer tone Saturday to Orange County, California - a traditional GOP stronghold.

"This is a government for everybody, it's not for sale, that's what we believe in", Obama said.
"That's on the ballot". "The stakes really are higher". While the Democrats centre around endeavoring to scrounge up the counter Trump vote, the district's Republican gathering is attempting to attract voters to bread-and-margarine issues nearer to home.

During his speech, Obama highlighted the seven Democratic candidates now running in the region and in highly contested counties. But he cared enough to retweet posts by supporters denouncing Obama.

Obama also said that the message would not just be focused on die-hard Democrats. When most Republican elites who are skeptical of Trump use the word "normal", they have in mind the policy agenda supported by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. And who say to themselves.

He said that in American history "there's always been a push and pull between those who want to go forward and those who want to look back, between those who want to divide and those who are seeking to bring people together - between those who promote a politics of hope and those who exploit politics of fear".

That comedy film depicted a graphic assassination of Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader, and was denounced by the country. Officials say Park at times traveled to neighboring China and conducted work under a front company called Chosun Expo.

"Some of you may think I'm exaggerating when I say this November's elections are more important than any I can remember in my lifetime", Obama said Friday.

"We're going to put on our marching shoes, we're going to start knocking on some doors, we're going to start making some calls", he said to cheers.

Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, whose district encompasses part of Orange County, is fending off a challenge from Democratic real estate investor Harley Rouda to secure a 16th term in Congress despite barely winning 30 percent of the primary vote. "It's just a huge comfort to hear his voice again", said Maurine Burns, a teacher who lives in the city of Orange.

Asked by interviewer Chris Wallace what regulation the creator would possibly perchance perchance perchance also need broken, Pence replied: "We'll salvage out if there used to be prison job eager". Obama spoke in Orange County, Calif. Saturday afternoon.
