  • City needs good dogs to handle rat epidemic The Chicago Way

    Chicago is said to be the rat capital of America. The city is expected to break last year’s record for the number of rat complaints. “Walking to the subway after work, I looked down and there was a rat walking alongside me,” said a trained journalist not given to exaggeration. “It was gigantic, like a small dog or a fat squirrel. It just walked along without fear.” But don’t worry, Chicago. I’ve got a guy. And I hope Mayor Rahm Emanuel is listening. Jordan Reed, the legendary American rat catcher, is known far and wide in the rat-hunting community for...
  • FLASHBACK: CitiGroup Chose Obama's Cabinet

    11/18/2016 7:12:17 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 9 replies
    In 2008 Michael B. Froman, then Citigroup executive, sends John Podesta a list of cabinet members. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team. Froman’s list proved remarkably prescient. As it proposed, Robert Gates, a Bush holdover, became secretary of Defense; Eric Holder became attorney general; Janet Napolitano, secretary of Homeland Security; Rahm Emanuel, White House chief of staff; Susan Rice, United Nations ambassador; Arne Duncan, secretary of Education; Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services; Peter Orszag,...
  • 'Uncle Tom' Is More Destructive Than the 'N-word'

    Warning: Graphic LanguageThe pejorative "Uncle Tom" causes more damage than does the word "n-----." The "N-word," when used by a white person as an epithet against a black person, is an insult, designed to convey to the recipient that he or she is a second-class citizen. It is designed to make one feel inferior. But it hasn't worked. My parents, as did the parents of my friends, said no one can make you feel inferior without your permission. Lesson learned. For decades, tests measuring self-esteem show that teenage black boys and girls test higher than do white boys and white...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday assured incoming high schoolers that they need not to worry about President Trump ending the “Dreamers” program, saying Chicago Public Schools are a “Trump-free” sanctuary for young illegal immigrants. “To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and in the city of Chicago: You are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home. And you have nothing to worry about,” Mr. Emanuel told a group of freshman on the first day of classes at Solorio Academy High School, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as...

  • Sanctuary for Whom?

    Townhall.com ^ | August 14, 2017 | Ken Blackwell
    President Donald Trump issued an executive order to stop subsidizing cities which obstruct immigration law. Chicago filed suit in response. Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to continue collecting federal dollars while ignoring federal policy. Chicago is a “sanctuary city.” That sounds nice, kind of like Oskar Schindler protecting Jews from the Nazis. It actually means protecting illegal aliens who commit crimes from being punished and deported. When President Donald Trump took office, some 300 jurisdictions, including 106 cities, actively interfered with federal law enforcement. The Chicago case arose from a drunk driver and illegal alien. Shortly after completing probation for a...

    US Defense Watch ^ | July 8, 2017 | Joe Ragonese
    The numbers are in: 102 shot, 15 dead over the Fourth of July weekend. Not a new high, just an ongoing flow of chaos and turmoil in what was once one of the greatest cities in America. Chicago’s Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, did not create the chaos, he simply expedited it due to his radical left ideology. Chicago’s decline is the direct result of the power of the Democrat Party in Illinois. Illinois, for all intents and purposes, is a one party state. OK, the Governor is a Republican, but powerless to change anything because the Chicago Democratic Party controls the...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- An FBI agent had his car stolen early Monday on the West Side, a source told ABC7. The theft happened at a gas station near Morgan Street and Jackson Boulevard at about 1 a.m., Chicago police said. Police said a 32-year-old man left his car running at the gas station when a male suspect entered the car and took off. Police have not confirmed that the stolen white Chevy Equinox belonged to an FBI agent. The vehicle was last seen heading east on Van Buren Street. There were several guns in the FBI agent's vehicle when it...

    llinois is like Venezuela now, a fiscally broken state that has lost its will to live, although for the moment, we still have enough toilet paper. But before we run out of the essentials, let's finally admit that after decade upon decade of taxing and spending and borrowing, Illinois has finally run out of other people's money. Those "other people" include taxpayers who've abandoned the state. And now Illinois faces doomsday. So as the politicians meet in Springfield this week for another round of posturing and gesturing and blaming, we need a plan. And here it is:

    Hillary 2020 - "She's full of energy!" It’s a really simple question. “If Hillary Clinton is up for another presidential run, would that be a good thing for your party?” That’s about as easy a “yes or no” softball as you’re likely to see. A first year poli-sci major would know enough to answer “Sure! We’re a big party with a wide array of diverse voices. Debate is always welcome. If she’s up for another run, we’d love to have her in the mix.”

    It's going to take much more money to keep Chicago's schools open through June than previously revealed, top Emanuel budget aide Carole Brown says. The Chicago Public Schools actually need $596 million to keep schools open the rest of the school year, and not just the $129 million officials have publicly discussed, a top aide to Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Tuesday. ... Brown said all options are on the table to find the cash needed to stave off an early closing of schools that CPS CEO Forrest Claypool has warned might be needed but that Emanuel has ruled out to...

    The Windy City has a whole host of issues to deal with these days, many of them centered around the fact that you’re more likely to be murdered there than in Fallujah on any given day. But rather than worrying about pesky little problems like that, the city council has decided to go after the really big ticket items on the agenda. One of these is to begin creating and distributing special municipal ID cards for various “underserved” groups including illegal immigrants. What could possibly go wrong? (CBS News, local) A program to create municipal identification cards passed overwhelmingly,...

    Two men were killed in the most recent party bus shooting on Mar. 12, 2017 (Photo: WLS) Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is cracking down on so-called “party buses” after a series of shootings involving the vehicles, according to the Chicago Tribune. The new ordinance, introduced March 29, would require party bus companies to install security cameras inside their vehicles and hire security guards for large groups and groups consuming alcohol. The proposal would also require companies to post signage on party buses, so that police can better determine if the vehicles are legally operated. A “multi-agency force” would be created...

    Rahm Emanuel needs a few things about America explained to him. For example, "Mayor" is not synonymous with "Dad." And being coerced into doing what the government wants you to do with your life is not so compatible with liberty: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proposed a new policy that won't allow students to graduate from high school unless they present a plan to the government on what their post-graduation plans are. The proposal would require students to prove that they're entering some sort of educational or vocational program after graduation; a job offer or entering the military would also...

    As we know Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama are best buddies, and it stands to reason they would both act in the same way when it comes to politics. Thus, we are witnessing a Mayor defy the President of the United States, in my opinion to commit a crime, by pushing for a new plan to create an identification card that would specifically be used to make sure illegal aliens in the city could get welfare benefits with minimal risk to repatriation. Of course, we know that Chicago is a sanctuary city, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel defied President Donald Trump and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) back in November stating that illegal aliens had a home in Chicago. Now, he is taking things a step further.  In the wake of Attorney General Jeff Sessions'  warning that sanctuary cities, like Chicago, could lose taxpayer money that is funneled through bureaucracy via the central government for harboring illegal immigrants, the mayor has decided to push for a new plan to create an identification card that would specifically be used to make sure illegal aliens in the city could get welfare benefits with minimal...

Gerald Skoning Illinois’s state lawmakers are busy these days, but not with trying to reform the pension system or improve Springfield’s dismal bond rating. Instead, they’re moving to designate October 2017 as Zombie Preparedness Month. This may sound like a joke, but it’s (un)deadly serious: A resolution adopted by the state House last month contends that “while a Zombie Apocalypse may never happen, the preparation for such an event is the same as for any natural disaster.” Residents are urged to “create a...

Marty Moylan later became mayor of Des Plaines. Now, the guy "that will tell you anything to get elected" has wormed his way into the Illinois House.

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...

    Monday in California at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, former Obama White House chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Democrats needed to “take a chill pill” and prepare for a long-term build up of the party. Emanuel said, “2016, now Democrats are in the lowest level since 1928 in the House of Representatives and the lowest level since 1925 in the state houses. Not really good.” adding,”It is hard to image it getting lower.”
