    Gun violence in Chicago showed no signs of letting up over the holiday weekend, which saw more than two dozen shooting victims, authorities said. The violence occurred between 6 p.m. Friday and 11:59 pm. Sunday, according to Chicago police data released Monday morning. In total, there were 24 reported shooting incidents and 31 shooting victims, which included at least four juveniles. Police said at least six people were murdered in the weekend violence. The fatal shootings included a 42-year-old woman who was walking with a 14-year-old boy through a vacant lot in the 2300 block of East 100th Street just...
  • Why the Midterms Didn't Surprise Me: In short? The two sides weren't equally matched and operated differently

    The red wave ebbed into a pink splash. The Democrats are crowing and claiming victory while Republicans look for scapegoats. But what can you expect when it isn't a level playing field, and the non-socialist team is fragmented? During the 2022 campaign, I chuckled while seeing ads where the same Democrats who voted for all of Biden's destructive programs tried to sound reasonable while calling all the Republicans "extremists" for opposing programs that were destroying the economy, the police, and the military. Well funded Democrat ads ran all day, far outpacing Republican ads. At the same time, most news programs...

    First column in a series exposing the truth about PizzagateLiz Crokin Jan 15I want to start my Pizzagate series by establishing the fact that pizza has been a known pedophile code word used by predators to operate hidden in plain sight for many years. In October of 2016, when the Podesta E-mails were released, the Urban Dictionary actually had defined “cheese pizza” as child porn. At that time there were two definitions of pizza as a code word for child porn – one from 2010 and one from 2015. So it’s important to note these definitions were established long before...
  • House Democrats to Vote on Election Denier Hakeem Jeffries for Leader

    House Democrats plan to vote Wednesday on whether election denier Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) will be the next Democrat House leader. Following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) decision to step down as Democrat leader, House Democrats have scheduled a vote on Wednesday at 9 a.m. to replace her in the position. Jeffries appears to be the chosen Democrat to win the coveted position. A lawyer from central Brooklyn, Jeffries, 52, is a far-left Democrat who appears to have been hand-picked by Pelosi to lead the Democrats in the next Congress. Jeffries was first elected to Congress in 2013 and has...
  • Some Democrats Worry Joe Biden Is Too Old for a Reelection Campaign

    Some Democrats have publicly expressed that President Joe Biden is simply too old to potentially launch a 2024 reelection bid in the coming months. Biden, who turned 80 years old on November 20th, is the oldest president in U.S. history, achieving that mark when he was inaugurated at age 78 in 2021. Democrats are worried his record old age in office may be a limiting factor if he decides to run again for reelection.
  • After Colorado Springs shooting, LGBTQ people in red California are on edge

    After five people were shot dead in a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colo., Matthew Grigsby thought about Club 501. It was the only gay bar in Redding, a Northern California city of 93,000 that, like Colorado Springs, is deeply religious and conservative. There, Grigsby felt comfortable holding hands or dancing with another man. Club 501 closed this summer, leaving Grigsby and other LGBTQ people without a place where they could be themselves. The news from Club Q in Colorado Springs was another gut punch. "There's no safe place anywhere," Grigsby, 53, said, his voice shaking. "It doesn't matter where...

    Gun control advocate Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Sunday that Democrats in the Senate “probably” do not have the votes to pass a ban on “assault weapons.” The Hill noted that CNN’s Dana Bash asked Murphy on State of the Union if Democrats have the votes to secure an “assault weapons” ban. Murphy responded, “Probably not. “But let’s see if we can try to get that number as close to 60 as possible,” he added. “If we don’t have the votes, then we’ll talk to Senator Schumer and maybe come back next year with maybe an additional senator and see...

    It was back in September 2019 that there sprang into the news the story of Hunter Biden and his million-dollar-per-year gig as a board member for Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Hunter’s gig began in April 2014 — shortly after his dad Joe, then sitting VP, took on the role of “point man” as to U.S. policy toward Ukraine. The gig then ran until some time in 2017 — shortly after Joe had left office. It just happened that Burisma had gotten the lion’s share of Ukraine oil and gas lease deals under ousted (and Russia-aligned) President Viktor Yanukovich, and had...

    CHICAGO (CBS) – At least eight people are dead, and 29 others are wounded in shootings during the Thanksgiving weekend in the city. The ages of the victims range from 13 to 60. In the first shooting of the holiday weekend, a 19-year-old man was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday inside a home in the 8100 block of South Peoria Street. Police said the man was pronounced dead at the scene, and the gunshot wound might have been self-inflicted. Two men were shot in the 9000 block of South Racine Avenue on...

A 2020 study by EmgageUSA showed significant gains in the number of registered Muslim voters in several states compared with 2016: 39% in Georgia, 35% in Texas and 46% in Wisconsin. Even though Muslims make up just 1.3% of the US population, large communities in swing states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin and Minnesota mean they can play a role in determining key races. In Pennsylvania, for instance, Emgage’s...

    Georgians have many reasons to be grateful this Thanksgiving, but a runoff election free from partisan lawsuits is not one of them. Amid its contentious campaign between Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock and GOP challenger Herschel Walker, Georgia Democrats called in Marc Elias — the lawyer behind the 2016 Russia collusion hoax — to force Georgia to allow an extra day of early voting on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Elias shopped around for an activist judge likely to grant him an easy win, and he found one. The GOP eventually appealed, but the day before Thanksgiving the Georgia Supreme Court refused...

    Ukraine is facing technical problems with western artillery amid war with Russia. According to New York Times, one-third of the howitzers sent to Ukraine have developed snags. A U.S. official said that a third of the 350 howitzers sent by the west to Ukraine are out of action. The New York Times reported that the United States Department of Defense is concerned over the development. The U.S. reportedly set up a repair facility in Poland to fix "faulty" weapons, the NYT reported. ...

    A tweet from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lamenting the slaying of five patrons of Club Q in Colorado Springs sparked an outpouring of ridicule from other Twitter users. In her tweet, the Mayor asked “how many people need to be murdered? How many lives torn apart? Until it actually stops?” Responses to her tweet pointed out that as the mayor of a city that averages more than a dozen murders a week she could be more effective if she put her energy into trying to reduce the carnage in her jurisdiction. Former ESPN sportscaster Jeannine Edwards wanted to know “where...

    Hakeem Jeffries seems poised to replace Nancy Pelosi as leader of the House Democrats. A Black political moderate, the Brooklyn congressman is often likened to Barack Obama. Even-tempered, he is known to “play” with most of the children in Washington. And at 52, he represents generational change from the 82-year-old Pelosi. Who among Democrats would have a problem with him? Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would have a problem. She also has problems with President Joe Biden and, frankly, the mainstream Democratic Party off which she feeds. A preening socialist princess, she has done much to entertain Fox News and cost the...

    … With more than a month left in 2022, the fatal shootings pushed Portland to a record 93 homicides, according to an Oregonian/OregonLive analysis of the city’s surge of violence. The number eclipsed the peak of 92 homicides last year, which had shattered the city’s previous record of 70 homicides in 1987. Both this year and last, most of the people have died in shootings. So far this year, at least 78 of the homicide victims died in shootings. In response to the week’s violence, Mayor Ted Wheeler said his priority for the remainder of his time in office is...

    The rush to communism and the New World Order must be exposed for what it is. We have no farther to look than the guides from the past. When I was a senior in high school, I was required to take and pass a government class as a condition to graduate. My teacher was a retired Illinois state trooper. Naturally, my teacher had certain opinions about the criminal justice system and the courts. My teacher was not a big fan of the Miranda decision. His issue was not against informing a suspect about his rights; it was more about how...

    MOSCOW, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Russia's parliament approved on Thursday a bill that widens a prohibition of "LGBT propaganda" and restricts the "demonstration" of LGBT behaviour, making any expression of an LGBT lifestyle almost impossible. Under the new law, which still needs the approval of the upper house of parliament and President Vladimir Putin, any action or information that is considered an attempt to promote homosexuality - whether in public, online, or in films, books or advertising - could incur a heavy fine. Previously, the law had outlawed only promotion of LGBT lifestyles aimed at children. The new bill also...

    It must become crystal clear to the Left that what goes around, comes around. As Republicans prepare to take charge of the U.S. House of Representatives, it is important to recognize the sea change that has recently occurred in America. Things are fundamentally different now than they were just a little while ago and are unlikely to change back in the near future, if ever. In international relations there are three ways countries interact with each other. Some are friendly, sharing common interests and goals. Examples include the United Kingdom and United States, the vaunted "special relationship." Others have little...
