    Successful black prosecutors from across the country came to St. Louis for a rally outside Carnahan Courthouse in support of embattled St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner. The prosecutors joined local leaders and Gardner supporters in a show of solidarity and a protest. They said the circuit attorney is being mistreated by the powers that be. "You are not alone," said Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. "We will not stand idly by any longer while the keepers of the status quo try to tear you down." On Monday, Gardner filed what she called an unprecedented federal civil rights lawsuit,...

    Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby traveled to St. Louis, Missouri, Tuesday and joined other black, female prosecutors to speak out against a political and law enforcement establishment that she says has attacked her, undermined her work for reform, and sought to push her from office. Mosby pledged solidarity with St. Louis’ top prosecutor Kim Gardner who filed a federal lawsuit alleging political attacks by her own city leaders and police union. “The vitriol, the personal and the professional attacks, particularly against black, female prosecutors is unprecedented,” Mosby told the crowd. “The individuals making decisions about who’s going to be charged,...

    St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is about to file a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city and the St. Louis police union that alleges a coordinated, racist conspiracy that she says is meant to drive her from office. The complaint alleges racist and illegal efforts of Gardner’s opponents to block reforms meant to benefit minorities. The lawsuit filed by Gardner, the first black woman elected as the chief prosecutor in St. Louis, appears to mark the first time an elected local prosecutor has brought a federal case against the police union for racially-motivated civil rights violations. "As a...

    OPERATION RESCUE ^ | Dec, 31, 2019, | Cheryl Sullenger
    Fairview Heights, IL – After facing possible license revocation in Missouri due to several life-threatening botched abortions at their St. Louis abortion facility, Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri recently opened a new surgical abortion facility just across the Mississippi River in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Operation Rescue, with the help of local activists, documented 75 medical emergencies at the old St. Louis clinic. Now, the same Planned Parenthood business is continuing its string of casualties just a few miles away in Illinois, where abortion laws are lax and there is less oversight and accountability. The $7...

    ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Murders in St. Louis have hit 187, surpassing last year's total with more than two weeks left of 2019. The number of killings is expected to go up before the end of the year and St. Louis Metropolitan Police say what is fueling it is all the shootings. More than 2,300 have been shot this year in the city, which is a 9% increase from 2018. There has also been a 5% increase in stabbings this year, up to a total of 766 stab victims.

    Illinois Policy ^ | OCTOBER 16, 2019 | Brad Weisenstein
    East St. Louis is short $9.5 million between a budget deficit and back payments owed to its fire and police pensions. As a result, city leaders are closing a firehouse and laying off nine firefighters. Nine firefighters have been asked to hand in their gear and their fire station will temporarily close as East St. Louis, Illinois, faces a $5.5 million budget deficit and interception of nearly $4 million in state funding for debts owed to its police and fire pensions. Unfortunately, with 100% of the City’s state revenues being redirected to the police and fire pensions, we are faced...
  • ... Bay Area TV station uses racist headline to cover Braves NLDS loss

    Yahoo Sports ^ | Oct 10, 2019 | Mike Oz
    A Bay Area news station likely wants a do-over after using a facepalm-worthy racially insensitive headline in its coverage of the Atlanta Braves being bounced out of the MLB postseason. KTVU, the Bay Area’s Fox affiliate, recapped the St. Louis Cardinals’ win over the Braves in Game 5 of the National League Division Series with a chyron that read, “Braves Scalped.” That’s straight out of the yikes factory. Particularly given the conversation that’s surrounded the Braves recently. A Cardinals pitcher of Native American descent objected to the Braves’ infamous Tomahawk Chop and the team responded Wednesday by toning down its...
  • Planned Parenthood has been building a secret "mega-clinic" in the Metro East (Abortion)

    KMOV4 ^ | October 1, 2019 | Kate Smith / CBS News
    (CBS News/ KMOV) -- After over a year of secret construction, Planned Parenthood announced its newest abortion facility on Wednesday: an 18,000-square-foot mega-clinic in Fairview Heights. The new location is just 13 miles away from Missouri's last remaining abortion clinic, a facility in St. Louis fighting to keep its license. Since August 2018, Planned Parenthood has used a shell company to construct the facility, leaving no public trace that the former medical office would become one of the largest abortion clinics in the country. CBS News first visited the site in August, while it was still being built. Colleen McNicholas,...

    Mason Wilson learned through some school friends about the July 19 shooting at a house in central St. Louis, not far from where his grandmother lives. It wasn’t the first shooting Mason, 9, heard about this year, but it was the one he thought about the most. The boy who was killed, 10-year-old Eddie Hill IV, had been standing on the porch with his father at about 8:30 p.m. when shots were fired from a passing SUV. Eddie, who was so smart, relatives told reporters, that he’d skipped a grade, was hit in the chest.

    Major cities run by Democrat policies for the past forty or so years all have one thing in common, a decaying inner core where buildings are rotting, property values are tanking and jobs are non-existent. President Trump has put the spotlight recently on Baltimore and it appears to be making headway out in the rest of the country that yes, there is a problem, one that has been long standing yet virtually ignored. How do you reverse this trend? Sinking more and more government led solutions hasn't done the trick. Perhaps it's time to let private enterprise take a shot...

    ST. LOUIS (BP) -- The battle to shutter a final abortion clinic in Missouri will continue at least until Aug. 1, according to a state commission's ruling June 28, acting on a federal judge's ruling a week earlier. Missouri could become the first state in the nation without an abortion clinic since 1973's Roe v. Wade decision -- if state health requirements prevail in closing an abortion clinic operated by Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri (RHS). State law requires abortion facilities to meet the same requirements as ambulatory surgical centers and that doctors who perform...

    Police say there were no arrest reports filed last night for any unruly behavior from Blues fans. They report the celebration in downtown St. Louis was joyous and without incident. Fans filled the Enterprise Center, Busch Stadium, and Ballpark Village for watch parties involving tens of thousands of people. Last year, when the Washington Capitals won their first Stanley Cup, Washington D.C. was relieved as the fans’ celebration resulted in only one arrest. In 2017, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Cup and police in that city reportedly made no arrests due to unruly behavior or property damage. In 2016 Pittsburgh...

    A keynote speaker for the first-ever Revoice Conference, centered on same-sex attracted Christians, has rejected the idea that Jesus Christ wants the church to accept same-sex marriage. Wesley Hill, associate professor of New Testament at the Trinity School for Ministry based in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, said in his speech Saturday evening that Jesus did not support "trimming God's standard down to fit whatever chaos is true of our lives." "Jesus was not out to undermine God's holy will for our lives. If anything, Jesus ratcheted up the standard of sexual purity and sexual holiness," said Hill. "I mean, if God agreed...
