    Watching the hearing, Bennie Thompson and Liz Cheney have my total attention. Both impressive. Bennie Thompson’s opening should be required for all students to read. Tears in my eyes watching what happened at Capitol Jan. 6, 1921. I hope this sends trump into insanity and has to be committed.

      President Obama is in Copenhagen to meet with Obama Foundation Leaders from across Europe, and he took the stage to deliver closing remarks at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit on the importance of a positive vision for democracy, and the promise of the next generation to chart a better course. Watch below!

      Throughout his career in public service, President Obama has championed change. He has always said that change is only possible when ordinary people get involved, engaged, and come together to demand it. That’s why our mission at the Obama Foundation is to inspire, empower, and connect people to change their world.

      It’s also why, during a time when democracy is under threat around the world, we need leaders who can connect across differences and who understand that the best chance we have to solve our greatest challenges is to solve them together.

      The Copenhagen Democracy Summit will focus on issues related to engagement and participation in our democratic institutions and processes, specifically highlighting how democratic organizing and activations among young people work in this digital age and the challenges presented by the way we now communicate online.

        “This is what governs your life…do you want to be governed by the worst people?”

        And to see PBO’s lovely face, hear his voice and responses to the leaders’ comments do the heart good, give solace and direction.

    Vladimir Putin’s admiration for Peter the Great is well known but he now seems to have ideas of ‘Great’-ness himself.

    He has openly compared himself to the Russian tsar, equating Russia’s invasion of Ukraine today with Peter’s expansionist wars some three centuries ago, and making his strongest acknowledgment yet that his own war is a land grab.

    Mr Putin’s apparent empire-building ambitions bode ill for Ukraine and have irked other neighbours, including Estonia, which called his comments “completely unacceptable.”

    And now Putin feels bold enough to admit that his “operation” is in fact an occupation.

    He also seems to believe the West will ultimately accept the reality his troops are fighting to create on the ground.

      Putin’s use of history is selective.

      Peter the Great, though a ruthless autocrat, was a huge admirer of Western ideas, science and culture, famously building St Petersburg as a “window on Europe” and travelling that continent thirsty for knowledge to help drag Russia towards modernity.

      Putin’s increasingly repressive rule slowly closed that window on the West; the war on Ukraine has slammed it shut. The idea of the Russian leader touring Holland or Greenwich in search of ideas and inspiration, as the Tsar once did, now seems impossible.

    The Voyager Scholarship

    “An increasingly globalized world needs young leaders who can bridge divides and help solve our biggest challenges together.

    The Voyager Scholarship was created by the Obamas and Brian Chesky, Airbnb CEO, to help shape such leaders. Even though they come from different backgrounds, both the President and Brian believe that exposure to new places and experiences generates understanding, empathy, and cooperation which equips the next generation to create meaningful change.

    This scholarship gives college students financial aid to alleviate the burden of college debt, meaningful travel experiences to expand their horizons, and a network of mentors and leaders to support them.”
