Former President Obama will accept an award for ethics in government next week and deliver a speech detailing the “challenges and opportunities facing our country.”

Obama will receive the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government during a ceremony on Sept. 7, the school and Obama’s office announced Thursday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Next week, President Obama will offer new thoughts on this moment and what it requires from the American people. He will expand upon several of the themes from his summer address, including that America is at its best when our democracy is inclusive and our citizens are engaged,” Katie Hill, the communications director for Obama, said in a statement.

“He will echo his call to reject the rising strain of authoritarian politics and policies,” she continued. “And he will preview arguments he’ll make this fall, specifically that Americans must not fall victim to our own apathy by refusing to do the most fundamental thing demanded of us as citizens: vote.”

The university said tickets will be required to view Obama’s remarks, but they will not be available to the general public. The speech will be streamed online, and a limited number of tickets will be made available to University of Illinois students.

    Biggest scam perpetrated on our country!

  3. Most Ironic & hypocritical!
    This man, who circumvented congress, constitution, and the law, by declaring he had a phone & a pen; now says:
    “He will echo his call to reject the rising strain of authoritarian politics & policies”.
    He must think we are all stupid & ignorant!
