    Chicago Reporter ^ | 6/12/20 | Maxwell Evans
    WOODLAWN - Dozens of members of a coalition fighting for affordable housing protections in the neighborhoods surrounding the future Obama Presidential Center set up a “tent city” Thursday in a city-owned, vacant lot, warning that’s what the city could look like if people are displaced. Members of the Obama CBA Coalition set up for the day in Woodlawn to outline their demands. Their expansive community benefits agreement, drafted to prevent displacement in advance of the Obama Presidential Center’s planned construction in Jackson Park, has stalled in City Council for nearly a year. Organizers are demanding changes to the scaled-back protections...

    An ANTIFA activist died this weekend after he was run down by a motor vehicle outside of a popular far-left hangout in Portland, OR. Sean D. Kealiher, 23, was struck by an SUV during a deadly confrontation outside of the Cider Riot bar, which is a centralized hub of sorts for the city’s violent left-wing extremists. The vehicle was reportedly hailed with gunfire after it hit Kealiher, and then crashed into a nearby building. Kealiher ultimately died of blunt-force trauma after being driven to a hospital where he could not be resuscitated. No arrests have been made at the present...

    ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) A tent city is continuing to grow in Midtown Atlanta and one woman is trying to find a permanent solution to the problem. Several transient people have put up tents along the 17th Street bridge and Northside Avenue in Midtown and it's becoming an eyesore. Judy Byrd lives in a nearby neighborhood and she's gotten the attention of Fulton County Commissioner Natalie Hall. "It's something that I wanted to make the county aware of and also wanted to see if any volunteers would participate in the community and it's just been amazing how much response I've...
  • Trump: Asylum seekers can expect 'tent cities' upon reaching the US

    President Trump said Monday that "tent cities" will be set up to provide shelter for migrants seeking asylum. "We're going to put tents up all over the place," Trump said on Fox News. "We're not going to build structures and spend ... hundreds of millions of dollars. We're going to have tents, they're going to be very nice and they're going to wait and if they don't get asylum, they get out."
  • Concentration Camps Expert Says Trump Just Endorsed The Idea Of Them In U.S. (He went there)

    The Huffington Post ^ | August 26, 2017 | Sam Levine
    President Donald Trump’s pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio amounts to an endorsement of the idea of concentration camps, says a journalist who has reported on the global history of the deadly facilities. Arpaio referred to his own county jail as a “concentration camp.” For over two decades, he operated “Tent City,” where detainees were kept in brutal conditions, including temperatures soaring well above 100 degrees Farenheit. They were also forced to work on chain gangs and to wear pink undergarments as a form of humiliation. Arpaio was convicted in July of criminal contempt for ignoring a court order...

    Maricopa County’s new sheriff announced Tuesday that he’s shutting down a complex of jail tents that helped make his predecessor, Joe Arpaio, a national law enforcement figure. Paul Penzone said at a news conference that the nearly 24-year-old Tent City complex will be closing in 45 to 60 days. Arpaio opened the complex in August 1993 as a way of easing jail overcrowding. The barbed-wire-surrounded compound was part of a broader campaign by Arpaio to enact get-tough measures in his jails, such as banning cigarettes, creating inmate chain gangs and dressing them in old-time striped prison uniforms. Closing Tent City...

    This is part 1 of a series of episodes I am doing on the Seattle homeless crisis. It illustrates perfectly the problems with big government, the insanity of liberals and the great lengths these red diaper doper baby liberal degenerates will go to get a free lunch off the backs of those who earn their lunch by their own sweat and tears. This first episode is a prologue of sorts, at focus is the failure of Olympia and city hall in particular a taxpayer funded program, The committee to end homelessness in King county that has gotten little attention but...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has labeled an Arizona prison known as Tent City a "disgrace to this country." "I think that what (Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio) is doing is really a disgrace to this country and it makes us look very, very bad all over the world," Sanders told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Mac & Gaydos on Monday. Sanders said the jail, which has drawn criticism in the past for being too extreme, is inhumane. "You don't have prisoners in this country exposed to 130-degree temperatures," he said. "You don't humiliate people. That is not what American justice...

    Update 10:35 P.M. 1/19/2016 Without warning, dozens of public works employees raided Tent City. "They just coming in and taking all their personal stuff. People's life is in that box that they're throwing in that garbage can. Might mean nothing to nobody else, but it does to them," said Tim Walker. Walker lived in Tent City for years but was recently able to get an apartment through Covenant House. Tuesday, about 30 homeless were camped out on a strip of land which legally belongs to Waste Management. "Who knows what might be in there, your baby pictures, pictures of your...
  • Saudi Arabia’s Tent City Could House Three Million Refugees

    The wealthiest nation of the Arab states near Syria will not admit a single refugee. But what does the situation look like in terms of their capacity? For weeks now, Europe has been in a state of emergency. This has been the biggest mass of people wandering through Europe Since World War Two. Many western governments are under pressure. There are even allegations made that they don’t do enough. But at the same time, there are huge capacities available on the Arabian continent. There is, for example, Mina, a valley east of the city of Mecca. The area is reserved...

    Organizers of two “social justice” protests in Tel Aviv were disappointed Saturday night when just thousands turned out for the rallies. The evening was also marred by violent fights as some participants in one rally, held in Kikar HaBima, fought with security personnel at the other, held at the Tel Aviv Museum. One even attempted to burst onto the stage and disturb the event. Those causing the disturbance were apparently angered by signs bearing the words, “There is a Future” – the name of a new political party started by journalist Yair Lapid. They accused the Tel Aviv Museum protest...

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERIFF JOE! Arpaio is 80 today, and if it's true that "80 is the new 60" then Joe is far outperforming most 60 year olds as well. Sheriff Joe's department captures an astounding 25% of ALL illegal aliens apprehended in the U.S. every year - 80% of whom are caught heading to states OTHER than AZ. So not only is Joe keeping alien criminals off AZ streets, but also off of streets near YOU. Joe is the biggest symbol we've got in the war against illegal immigration, and now against a corrupt Attorney General and administration trying to...

    The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday unanimously voted to ban tents from city parks. Some Occupy L.A. activists called it an assault on the Occupy Wall Street movement. They said homeless people are the ones who will be hurt by the ordinance. Occupy protesters took over a park in front of City Hall for about two months before it was dismantled by a police raid last November.

    The summer “social protest season” opened Saturday night with a demonstration in Tel Aviv, attended by some 3,500 people. The demonstration in Rabin Square was the largest since last summer, when tens of thousands of protesters gathered in cities around the country demanding a more affordable cost of living. Protesters blocked streets in Tel Aviv, and demanded that the government act to end social injustice and ensure that the country's resources are more equitably divided. Police arrested five protesters. Smaller protests took place in several other cities in Israel, and protests were also held in cities throughout Europe, including Spain,...

But if his enemies think this would cause Sheriff Joe Arpaio to keep a lower profile, they will be very disappointed. Today, Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, AZ erected a McDonald's-style sign outside the fence of his famous "Tent City" jail touting how many inmates - more than 430,000 - who have been "served" since he opened it 19 years ago....

    The “October 2011” movement organizer Dennis Trainor tells me that he believes capitalism is “homicidal” and that the U.S. needs a revolution. “This is not a reform movement,” he said. He is part of the illegal occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. The “October 2011” movement is not part of, but endorses the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began several weeks ago. Although he describes himself as new to professional agitation, Trainor runs the “No Cure For That” website and served as a writer/media consultant for Dennis Kucinich’s 2008 presidential campaign. Kucinich is the Cleveland Democrat perhaps best known...

Lt. Pat Hofmann of the Phoenix Police Department says officers used pepper spray as they tried to separate protesters from an officer on horseback who was trying to take away the bottles and got crowded by the protesters. Four people were detained, and Hofmann says one is expected to be charged with aggravated assault on a police officer.

    Organizers of a vigil against the mistreatment of federal detainees called for the closure of the nation's largest immigration detention center known as “Tent City” in Raymondville. The vigil was held by some one hundred people from across Texas Friday evening. The privately-operated prison in Willacy County houses some 3,000 immigrants. Some of them have turned to Action 4 News to sound off on allegations of horrendous conditions, sexual assaults, rotten food and poor medical care inside the facility. Vigil organizers, some from as far away as Austin and Laredo, said the inhumane treatment of detainees must be stopped. “We...
