    The locally oriented website CWBChicago provides a valuable instructional video for its readers in fashionable, upscale Chicago neighborhoods who (quite realistically) fear the ongoing predation by gangs running rampant elsewhere in the city, making it the murder capital of America. A compelling security camera video released by the Chicago Police Department depicts a gang driving into Wicker Park – an expensive area with great shopping attracting many pedestrians (and a Hollywood film named after it) – and carrying out an armed robbery on a pedestrian.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo mimicked California Gov. Jerry Brown’s approach to immigration Thursday, pardoning 18 convicted illegal immigrants who were facing deportation. Cuomo, a Democrat, praised himself on Twitter for his compassion, before linking to a New York Times article supporting the move. Cuomo claimed the federal government is “tear[ing] families apart” with the current immigration policy and felt he was taking the “critical step” to defend those who were unfairly targeted.

    According to a report published by Politico, former President Obama blocked the Drug Enforcement Agency's efforts to stop the Islamic terrorist group Hezbollah from developing a global narcotics syndicate. The nominal rationale for this intrusion to thwart a law enforcement operation was "to not upset delicate negotiations with Iran." Hezbollah is largely funded by the Iranian government. Ben Rhodes, former Deputy National Security Adviser during the Obama Administration, characterized the revelation as "Monday-morning 'quarterbacking.' Are we supposed to be shocked that a president might place a higher priority on reaching a diplomatic agreement with another country ahead of a routine...

    A United States District Judge has halted the deportation of more than 90 Somali nationals — 60 of which are convicted criminals — back to Somalia following a lawsuit alleging abuse by federal immigration officials. In a ruling this week, a District Judge stopped about 92 Somali nationals from being deported after a class-action lawsuit was filed claiming federal immigration officials mistreated the group of Somalis on a previous deportation effort that was never fully executed. On Dec. 7, the group of Somali illegal aliens and convicted criminals were on their way to Somalia from Louisiana when they stopped in...

    DENVER (AP) — Denver authorities shut down 26 legal marijuana businesses Thursday and arrested 12 people suspected of illegal distribution of pot after a yearlong criminal investigation. Potential charges relate to marijuana sales exceeding limits set in state law, police said. Colorado allows people 21 and older to possess an ounce or less of marijuana under a measure approved by voters in 2012. The city department that regulates marijuana businesses issued the order to close the businesses based on the police investigation, spokesman Dan Rowland said. It marked the first time the city has issued an open-ended suspension to any...

    The revelation last year of an unorthodox tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch set off a frenzied scramble at the FBI to track down the source, newly released documents show. Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which on Thursday released 29 pages of FBI emails related to the 2016 meeting, said the messages show officials were more concerned about the leak than the substance of the report.“These new FBI documents show the FBI was more concerned about a whistleblower who told the truth about the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting than the scandalous meeting itself,” Judicial...

    On November 16, 2017, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) kicked off her run for the 2020 presidency by intoning that Bill Clinton should have resigned (in disgrace?) in 1998 over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Talk sure is cheap, isn't it? That's because the Democrats had in their power to dump Clinton in 1999 and kick him right out of office – and took a pass on it. They could even have accomplished this with a minority of their Senate membership. And not only would it have been easy, but it would even have redounded to their benefit, by guaranteeing their continued...

    MIAMI — For nearly 20 years the Nicaraguan man worked long hours cleaning homes and buildings in South Florida. He started his own cleaning business 11 years ago and now employs half a dozen workers. He thought he could soon begin to enjoy the fruits of his labor. But now all of that is at risk. Like many Americans approaching retirement age, the 62-year-old planned to retire next year and start collecting his benefits. But the Trump administration announced bad news a week ago: It's ending an immigration protection for him and 2,500 other Nicaraguans. "I worked so many years...

    Last week Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) told CNN's Jake Tapper that the 2016 Democratic presidential primary was rigged to favor Hillary Clinton over her rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt). This week she reversed herself saying that "I am persuaded that I was being manipulated into a false consciousness." The chief "persuader" according to Warren was none other than Hillary Clinton. "She reminded me that Bernie was the communist candidate and that the Russians would have had no incentive to rig the primaries against him," the Senator said. "Once their efforts to secure the nomination for their 'mole' fell through they...

    Celebrities took to Twitter to call for increased gun control measures almost immediately after news broke of the shooting at a Sutherland Springs, Texas church on Sunday that claimed at least 24 lives. The attack occurred at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, at approximately 11:30 a.m. central time. Celebrities began calling for gun control before the number of casualties was confirmed and before the gunman had been identified, or his possible motive discovered. Horror novelist Stephen King was quick to call for new gun laws:

    If you get caught allegedly shoplifting in a store, it's probably not a good idea to go back there. Two Pennsylvania women were caught on video trashing a 7-Eleven after employees locked them inside and called police after they allegedly were in the store a day earlier shoplifting. The two women also got into a fight with 7-Eleven employees and responding police officers, according to Philly.com. The two women - 20-year-old Lashae Whitaker and 28-year-old Tiera Brown - entered the 7-Eleven on Oct. 1 when they were locked inside as employees called the police. In the video, Whitaker is shown...

    “We felt that this was an issue over the last months, as we have continued to work with our players on issues of equality and on issues of criminal justice reform, that was surfaced for us, and we thought it was appropriate to lend our support to it,” NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart told reporters. The endorsement comes amid national debate over NFL players kneeling during the pregame national anthem in protest against law enforcement’s alleged institutional mistreatment of minorities.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) teams made 498 arrests in “sanctuary cities” this past week as part of an enforcement action dubbed “safe city.” Those arrested included 317 people with criminal convictions, 68 immigration fugitives, 104 people who had previously been deported and 18 known gang members. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney (D) denounced the ICE raids as “an infringement on our city’s sovereignty. We gave our word to these undocumented immigrants that they would be safe from arrest in our jurisdiction. Now we look like fools.” The Mayor vowed legal action “to reverse this egregious miscarriage of justice. We’re...
