    Taxpayers just learned that those who have worked in the U.S. Congress are at risk of becoming: a. bipolar; b. depressed and c. anguished. “Three J,” as he is known in Chicago street parlance, AKA former jail inmate and Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. claims to be suffering from all three. As a result, Jackson is collecting a whopping $138,400 from U.S. taxpayers each year; $100,000 in workman’s comp and another $38,400 in Social Security Disability, all because he is a victim of these afflictions. It is Joe Schoffstall of the Washington Free Beacon who revealed that the son of...

    In the end there will be only two types of Democrats: anti-Semites and cowards. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The Democrats care about anti-Semitism. They care so much that they had a presidential candidate and convention speaker who led an anti-Semitic riot through a Jewish neighborhood. “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house,” he had taunted his victims. He became a close presidential adviser whose endorsement is sought after by every Democrat...

    Chicago police clear officers of racial profiling in stop of U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush On Aug. 4, 2016, U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush was pulled over in Bronzeville. He was let go without a ticket being issued, but later filed a complaint with IPRA alleging racial profiling. This video contains body cam footage from one of the officers that Rush filed the complaint against. (Source: CPD) Chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the department's Bureau of Internal Affairs found that the two Wentworth District officers acted properly because they had probable cause to make the stop. Earlier that day, officers at roll...

    Not long after President Donald Trump was sworn in, we happened to run into the Rev. Jesse Jackson on the street. He gave a thumbs-up to Trump’s inauguration speech but said the new commander in chief has much work to do in order to unify a nation riven by a divisive campaign. “The speech was full of hope and inclusion and he reached out to cities in a way they’ve not been reached out to for a long time,” he said. “But with that must come a target, a timetable and a budget.” Trump’s speech hit many of the populist...

    Sorry, Jesse. Wrong again. The “Reverend” Jesse Jackson is nothing if not pious and holy. He’s a veritable paragon of virtue, and we’re all supposed to pay close attention to his proclamations. So, he’s issued the following encyclical: “Secretary Clinton has not been legally accused, and either tried or convicted of anything. President Obama should follow President Ford’s example and offer a pre-emptive full pardon. It would be a monumental moral and political mistake to pursue the prosecution of Hillary Clinton.”

    Does anyone else find it curious that Jesse Jackson called for a presidential pardon of Hillary Clinton yesterday?Jesse, leading the “Free Hillary!” movementMumbling his way through a prepared statement at the University Michigan in Ann Arbor yesterday Jackson said: "President Ford said we don't need (Nixon) for trophy. We need to move on. President Nixon wasn't convicted of a crime. He didn't apply for a pardon. (Ford) did it because he thought it would be best for the country. Had she won the election on November 8th the comparison between President Ford pardoning President Nixon for his assumed crimes may...

      Among other things, it looks like the Chicago lobbying to save ShoreBank paid off. Earlier this month I discovered a letter sent by Windy City power player and big Democrat donor Lester McKeever, Jr., to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, which urged his intervention. "It is my hope," McKeever wrote, "and one shared by others who care deeply about its most vulnerable communities, that the ShoreBank recapitalization plan with investment coming from the U.S. Treasury will enable it to continue servicing its customers and fulfilling its mission." In a post today on ShoreBank's blog, online channel manager (whatever that...

    An all-gender bathroom at the Democratic national convention was seeing plenty of visitors on Thursday. Even some famous ones. "When both of us walked in," said Nikki Nice, referring to a friend who was hurriedly walking away from this reporter, "Reverend Jesse Jackson was coming out of the stalls." "We were like: 'Ahhh'," Nice said. "Just experiencing Reverend Jesse Jackson coming out of a stall – that just speaks everything about what an all-gender restroom really is about. So I'll take that any day."

    As the party prepares to convene in the birthplace of democracy, it faces dangers from within and without that threaten to destroy its chances to govern at a time of uncertainty, upheaval and unpredictability. The nation’s attention has just been focused on four days of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, capped by a speech in which Donald Trump told us we were unsafe and could only be saved by a strong leader unbound by political correctness, unafraid to confront the world. Democrats have already begun focusing on the excesses of that convention but they risk missing the very important...

    Authorities: Tennessee highway gunman motivated by police shootings A man accused of shooting indiscriminately at passing cars and police on a Tennessee highway told investigators he was angry about police violence against African-Americans, authorities said Friday.

    Harold M. Ickes never forgets a favor, especially if he's the one who did the favor. So the veteran political operative made sure that, when the time was right, he alone would call Garry Shay, former chairman of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party... And once Ickes started calling, he didn't stop until Shay said the words Ickes wanted to hear -- that he would support Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August... the man in charge of Clinton's feverish effort to lock up superdelegates is Ickes, whose enthusiasm for...

    Having a night job and playing simple yet multiple games of juggling with what life throws at you during the conscious part of one's daylight hours normally impedes on one's abilities to wake up relatively early to do what I call "active business for a cause".

Because of Jesse Lee Peterson's recent legal action against Jesse Jackson and Rainbow/PUSH due to a ...

    Washington (CNN)-The Rev. Jesse Jackson endorsed Hillary Clinton on Saturday, continuing a recent string of high-profile endorsements for the presumptive Democratic nominee. Jackson, speaking in Chicago, said he trusts that Clinton will look out for the interests of marginalized communities including refugees, immigrants and the poor. "We trust her to work on health care, to fight for the poor ... for the willingness to fight for civil rights," Jackson said. Jackson, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for president in 1984 and 1988, endorsed Clinton at the site of a memorial recognizing the hundreds of children killed in the city...
