    Alderman Rossana Rodriguez has in the past sparked controversy for her remarks about IsraelJewish groups are calling out a Chicago alderman who on her personal Facebook page asked for suggestions for an “anti zionist” pediatrician. Alderman Rossana Rodriguez appears to have posted the inquiry earlier this week. On Wednesday, the Chicago Jewish Alliance, formed this year to combat antisemitism, wrote on Instagram that her post is discriminatory. “Imagine if she requested no recommendations for black or Muslim doctors—outrageous, right?” read the group’s post. “We demand Alderwoman Rossana Rodriguez’s immediate resignation.” Thoughtful, balanced reporting from the Forward and around the web,...
  • US Supreme Court says South Carolina election map doesn't impermissibly exclude Black voters

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a Republican-drawn South Carolina congressional district, reversing lower court rulings that had struck it down as a product of unconstitutional racial gerrymandering that excluded Black voters. Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the court in a 6-3 ruling from which the liberal justices dissented, said the lower court's decision that race was unconstitutionally used to diminish the influence of Black voters was "clearly erroneous" because it had not properly analyzed the facts. "A party challenging a map's constitutionality must disentangle race and politics if it wishes to prove that the legislature was motivated by...

    Life was better in the Bronx when former President Donald Trump was in office, and Democrats have “used” them, some Bronx residents told Fox News in a series of interviews ahead of Trump’s historic rally in the Bronx. Fox News spoke to residents in the Bronx ahead of Trump’s Thursday rally, and there appeared to be a consensus: They are not happy with the way things are going under President Joe Biden’s leadership. One individual told Fox News it is 50-50, as some love Trump and others hate him, but he added that Trump is “better than Joe Biden.”

    A Republican presidential challenger campaigning in the South Bronx against an inflation-ridden and unpopular Democratic incumbent. I’ve seen this show before. It was August 5, 1980, when Ronald Reagan, the GOP nominee against President Jimmy Carter, traveled to the troubled borough of New York City to deliver his message of “Make America Great Again.” It was, for sure, a raucous scene, plenty of Bronx cheering. Relying on a microphone to make himself heard, Reagan shouted, “I can’t do a damned thing for you if I don’t get elected!”

    US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Thursday urged G7 ministers meeting in Italy to consider “more ambitious options” to use frozen Russian assets to help Ukraine. The ministers and central bankers from the Group of Seven world powers are meeting in Stresa, on the shores of northern Italy’s Lake Maggiore, to prepare for a summit of G7 heads of state next month in Puglia. Yellen said the group would also discuss what Washington considers to be “overcapacity” of key green technologies from China such as electric vehicles, batteries and solar panels. Top of the agenda is a plan to finance...

    For My Enemies, The LawAnarcho-Tyranny is punishment of the innocent for the benefit of the guilty.The current condition in the United States has been described as been described as a state of “anarcho-tyranny.” This term, originally coined by paleo-conservative writer Sam Francis, was recently defined by Tucker Carlson as “selective punishment while ignoring the rule of law.”This condition was exemplified by a recent incident in Oakland, California that was so egregious that it would have been literally unimaginable until recently. Victor Silva is 102 years old and in a wheelchair. He was notified by the city that he is expected...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) mocked former President Trump over bad weather ahead of his Thursday rally in the Bronx. “God is Good 🙏🏽,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a Thursday post on the social media platform X. The New York Democrat replied to a post on X showcasing that the Crotona Park section of the Bronx, where the rally is slated to take place, had rain around 10 a.m. local time Thursday. The House progressive went after the former president earlier this week for doing a campaign rally in the South Bronx. She said he was holding it due to a “legal...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | May 20, 2024
    Given a choice between granting amnesty to illegal immigrants and deporting all of them, Americans voters favor deportation by a double-digit margin. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if given a choice between two candidates, one of whom favored granting amnesty to illegal aliens and one of whom favored deporting all illegal aliens, 52% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the candidate who favored deportation. Thirty-six percent (36%) would vote for the candidate who favored amnesty, while 12% are undecided.

    It didn’t take long for the Pentagon to all but confirm that the temporary Gaza port constructed at the behest of President Biden is turning out to be a total disaster. The admission came during a Tuesday press conference, in which Gen. Patrick S. Ryder, the Pentagon’s spokesman, told reporters that none of the 569 metric tons of food and supplies delivered into Hamas-controlled Gaza via the port have been distributed to Gaza residents by nongovernmental organizations. Constructed by the U.S. military, the $320 million floating port was announced earlier this year during Biden’s State of the Union address, a...

    Moscow is taking advantage of the lack of both air defenses in Ukraine and reliable capability to destroy Russian launchers, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Thursday following a deadly missile strike on the northeastern city of Kharkiv. Russian troops conducted at least 15 strikes on the city Thursday morning, he added on Telegram. Russian air defense systems in the southern region of Belgorod destroyed three Olkha and 32 Vampire rockets and three drones launched by Ukraine overnight, the Russian Defense Ministry said Thursday.

    Because virtually all the polling firms publish essentially the same results, there is little doubt that if an honest election were held today Donald Trump would handily defeat Joe Biden in the Electoral College vote. Further, as long as an increasingly senescent, unpopular, and compromised Joe Biden remains the Democrat nominee, Trump should win at least 270-290 electoral votes (270 needed to win the presidency) in November despite the inevitable Democrat duplicity, lawfare, and voter fraud and machinations. If faced with the potential scenario of not being able to replace Biden, the Democrats are going to single-mindedly focus on races...

    Some U.S. Border Patrol agents blame President Joe Biden for the agency losing nearly a quarter of its workforce since the 2020 presidential election, the Washington Examiner reported. The Border Patrol, which is comprised of more than 19,000 agents, lost 4,281 federal law enforcement agents who left the agency between October 2020 and April 2024. Biden won the White House in November 2020. That number includes agents who quit, were forced to retire due to their age or number of years on the job, or who chose to retire as soon as they became eligible, the Examiner reported. Early retirements...

    Posting to Truth Social account, President Trump shared a video with the background narration of Victor Davis Hanson last night.The outline as spoken eloquently by VDH, walks through the fear of the entire apparatus of the political left; a fear created by their inability to destroy everything that Donald J Trump represents. { REMEMBER: The need for control is a reaction to fear. Often people write the professional political leftists within the IC, Deep State and DOJ/FBI apparatus do not look fearful, act with fear, nor do they operate from an appearance of fearfulness. However, that counterpoint is wrong. It...

    Former GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley was dismissed as “pathetic” for saying Wednesday she plans to support former President Donald Trump over President Joe Biden in the general election come November, with erstwhile Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) delivering the character appraisal. “Not a surprise but: Pathetic,” the now CNN commentator wrote, in response to Haley saying she would vote for Trump, as reported by the Hill. His assessment followed other similar appraisals made in media outlets in the hours after she spoke. Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley dropped out of the Republican presidential primary race back in March handing...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fumed that a Supreme Court Justice is a threat to democracy because of a flag displayed at his beach home last year. AOC went on MSNBC to slam Justice Samuel Alito for flying a Revolutionary War-era flag featuring a pine tree and the slogan 'An Appeal to Heaven' at his New Jersey vacation home last summer. The flag originally was designed to be flown by U.S. naval ships in the Revolutionary War that were directly under the command of George Washington. Like the Gadsden Flag, which popularly features a snake and the 'Don't Tread On Me' slogan,...
