    “We’re cutting off money for schools, cutting off money for police, allowing people to be forced to live in food deserts, closing hospitals, closing access to mental health facilities,” Kennedy told reporters during a news conference that began as a criticism of the city’s efforts to stop gun violence. What choice do people have but to move, to leave, and I think that’s part of a strategic gentrification plan being implemented by the city of Chicago to push people of color out of the city,” he continued. Asked who is behind this alleged plan, Kennedy pointed to Emanuel. “I believe...

    The lineup for Illinois’ 2018 Democratic gubernatorial primary is firming up fast. So far, the six-candidate field is mostly white, and all male. To win, one of them must energize and capture the party’s crucial base. African-American voters should be asking: What have you done for me? What will you do for me? Public affairs consultant Alexandra Sims says they should be making deals. In the governor’s race, “what’s going to happen across the state and across Cook County is deals. And you want the black community to be part of those deals.”

    Estelle Carson was selected as “Democrat of the Year” for Jefferson County, Colorado for 2012 despite being under indictment for stealing from a 71-year-old wheelchair-bound woman who is partially blind and suffers from cerebral palsy. Though Carson was under investigation at the time Chris Kennedy, chairman of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, presented her with the award, Kennedy said she didn’t think it would’ve been fair to allow that to influence her actions. “The award is in recognition of efforts on behalf of the Democratic Party,” Kennedy explained. “Ms. Carson’s theft in no way diminishes what she has done for...

    I figured I'd top off the day with something good about America, its good, old-fashioned, masculine men--one of whom is my good friend, Chris Kennedy. He's one of the many we still have here in America, amongst the growing crowd of girlie-men. Chris is something rare in Hollywood and in the Kennedy family (he's a distant Kennedy cousin), a conservative actor with good Midwestern values. I've known Chris about half my life, and he has always been a good friend, attending all my appearances on shows shot in L.A. He was a member of the 1994 Wisconsin Rose Bowl Champion...
