    Four people were killed and 43 others were wounded, including a dozen teenagers, in shootings in Chicago over the weekend, according to police. More than 1,700 people have been shot in the city this year, about 180 fewer than this time last year when violence reached levels not seen in two decades. There have been at least 313 homicides this year, eight fewer than this time last year, according to data collected by the Tribune. Among those killed this past weekend was a 17-year-old boy, who was shot about 10:40 p.m. Sunday. He was arguing with someone at a gas...

    The Democrats are a network of criminals who seek to sabotage this past election using the press, various progressive organizations and George Soros NGO’s. Their deceptive practices are direct assaults on our electoral process and threatens the stability of our republic. Their “Resistance” supported by powerful Democrats and their activists, use inciting rhetoric fomenting violence leading to attempted assassinations of dozens of GOP congressman by Bernie Sanders supporter, James T. Hodgkinson. Although the Trump-Russia narrative of collusion has been dispelled by lack of evidence, it still makes headlines. Although Lyin’ Chuck Schumer kept repeating a lie, there was never a...

    At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. Stephanie Lulay wrote:

    The absence of Islamic terror attacks in Poland and Hungary has been attributed to these countries' refusal to take in an adequate portion of the flood of Muslim refugees that have swarmed into Europe over the last few years. The leaders of Hungary and Poland think this is a good thing. Hungarian Prime Minster Viktor Orban called these migrants "a poison" and said "every single migrant poses a public security and terror risk." Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydo called the European Union's policy of allowing mass migration from the Middle East "folly." EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos slammed the governments...

    The chief's letter says police decided to remove left-wing protesters from Chapman Square after officers were hit by objects launched by protesters from slingshots. "These objects included urine and feces filled balloons, balloons with unknown chemicals, marbles, bricks and rocks," Marshman writes. "Police observed people in Chapman Square climbing atop the brick restroom structure at the south end of the park, with bricks. PPB knew that objects were already being thrown and slung and that bricks were being prepared to be thrown."

    “We Social Democrats are working to ensure all priests will consecrate everyone, including same-sex couples,” Lofven told Kyrkans Tidning magazine. “I see parallels to the midwife who refuses to perform abortions. If you work as a midwife you must be able to perform abortions, otherwise you have to do something else… It is the same for priests,” he said.

    When Nabra Hassanen was brutally murdered in Virginia this past Sunday, the media's collective ears perked up. She was a studious, friendly, innocent 17-year-old, a devout Muslim who was killed while approaching her mosque. Almost immediately, The Atlantic ran with this headline: "Muslims Feel Under Seige." The magazine instinctively linked Nabra's killing with the London incident in which a man plowed his car into a group of Muslims leaving their mosque. "Muslim Americans are mourning and terrified," The Atlantic breathlessly reported, "after two violent incidents left worshippers dead over the weekend during the holy month of Ramadan." USA Today and...

Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio has been locked up since June 5 for violating her parole for a DWI conviction. “You’re ruining my f–king life,” Astacio reportedly whined to cops when they found her behind the wheel of her car on the side of the highway around 8:00 a.m. on Feb. 13, 2016. She reeked of alcohol and refused a Breathalyzer, according to reports. Still she got off with a $500 fine, a one-year conditional discharge and an interlock device on her...

    We think of Atlanta as the black metropolis but during the Great Migration, where did all the black Southerners go? A lot went to Chicago, and their descendants are still there. Or were. Cause it turns out, the “black exodus” is very real in the city of Chicago. Chicago's Cook Country had — and has — the largest population of black people of any county in the United States. But Cook County has shown noticeable dips in its black population within the past year or so. In fact, the Chicago Tribune reports that more than 12,000 black residents left the...

    In June 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down large parts of an Arizona state law intended to give local law enforcement the power to enforce federal immigration laws. The ruling in Arizona v. United States held that three sections of S.B. 1070 were pre-empted by federal immigration law. The Obama administration, which opposed the Arizona law, along with advocates for open borders, hailed the ruling, contending that the U.S. couldnÂ’t very well have 50 different immigration policies. Now, five years later the script has flipped. Many of the same folks who railed against a single state setting its own...
