    The raucous meeting saw speakers shouting each other down, prompting appeals for decorum from Mayor Brandon Johnson. In the end, the funds transfer passed 34-13 — enough to carry Chicago only through June 30. “The soul of Chicago is somewhat on trial,” said Ald. David Moore, who opposed the ordinance. “Make sure you put your mask on first before you help someone else. And so we have to put our mask on first, and we have to help the residents of this city.”

    A man who lives across the street from Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson was held without bail Tuesday after prosecutors accused him of beating a woman to death with a baseball bat inside his home and dumping her body in the alley. Arnel Smith, 64, is charged with first-degree murder and concealing a homicidal death. A medical examiner who handled the 41-year-old victim’s case said they had “never seen so many injuries on someone’s body,” Assistant State’s Attorney Anne McCord said during Smith’s bail hearing.

    In a stunning reversal from their prior blackout of the story, CBS News released an exclusive interview this week with an IRS whistleblower who is alleging that the Department of Justice intentionally stymied an investigation into potential tax law violations by Hunter Biden. The moment recalls memories of another famous incident of CBS suddenly turning on a Democrat president, when anchor Walter Cronkite broke with Lyndon B. Johnson’s stance on the Vietnam War, an incident that reportedly caused Johnson to remark, “If I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost America.” That watershed moment came on February 27, 1968, in the midst of...
  • Boris Johnson allegedly bashed Emmanuel Macron as ‘Putin’s lickspittle’

    A livid Boris Johnson once called Emmanuel Macron a “%^&*” and “Putin’s lickspittle” — and threatened to “punch his lights out” in “an orgy of frog-bashing,” according to explosive claims from an ex-spokesman. The then-UK leader had already found it “nauseating” to see his French counterpart visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin last year in doomed efforts to broker peace, according to Johnson’s then-director of communications, Guto Harri. But Johnson flipped his lid when Macron, 45, “turbocharged” pressure the British PM was facing over his handling of refugees flooding out of war-torn Ukraine — by “criticizing Boris pretty directly,” Harri recalled...

    Brandon Johnson spent part of his first full day as mayor Tuesday visiting asylum-seekers who have been sleeping on the floor of the 12th District police station and others staying at a temporary shelter in Little Village, saying he needed to see the crisis “first-hand.” The new mayor met with several immigrants staying at the 12th District police station, telling them he was ‘grateful’ they were here and assuring them that ‘we are going to do everything we can to make this home for you.’

    Republicans “savor” the border crisis and seek to “get back to slavery,” according to Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson, who claimed that migrants are necessary to help “put food on our table,” serve as custodians, and “clean up” hospitals. Speaking at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Johnson bemoaned the continued “assault on the concept of immigration” into the United States.

    Last weekend, mobs of teenagers swarmed into downtown Chicago where they smashed store windows, set cars on fire, assaulted out-of-town tourists, and shot at each other. Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson (D) pleaded with the city's residents to "not overreact by demonizing the exuberance of our youth. They are our future and should not be condemned for expressing their joy in ways that our older residents might find frightening." He then went on to blame his predecessor for "allowing the pall of systemic racism to stifle opportunities for our black youth." Outgoing Mayor Lori Lightfoot denied that her reign stifled black youth...

    MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson said Monday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that former Fox News host Tucker Carlson “was always a dumb person’s idea of what a smart bigot sounded like.” Johnson said, “That’s the most positive outgrowth of Tucker Carlson being fired. There are a lot of journalists I disagree with, there’s lots of people whose programming I might not find interesting, but he was a direct menace and directly responsible for stoking racism, and all sorts of vitriolic believes throughout his show.”

    Former CIA officer Larry Johnson, who did presidential daily briefings during the George H.W. Bush administration, told "Judging Freedom" host Andrew Napolitano that he thinks the latest leak of Ukraine War documents is an inside job. About the source, he said: "I'd put it above the CIA. This is elements connected to the Director of National Intelligence... There's no way that some National Guardsman doing [temporary duty] at Fort Bragg would have access to that." "The information was leaked for [a purpose], to prepare the U.S. public for the crash landing that's going to take place with respect to U.S....

    Tennessee Rep. Gloria Johnson (D) said Tuesday on “CNN This Morning” that she hears racist statements “all the time” in the Tennessee State House. Johnson said racism was the reason her two black colleagues, Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson were expelled, and she was spared. Co-host Don Lemon said, “You’ve been very in front after the vote last week that you felt race played a role in Jones and Pearson’s removal. But there are some of your Republican colleagues were saying in their estimation that it wasn’t race. That you argued, your attorney argued to the contrary that you...

    Chicago Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson (D) is hoping to transform Illinois’s most populous city with his progressive agenda, including opening local school board elections to illegal aliens, among other foreign nationals. As Breitbart News reported Tuesday evening, Johnson beat out moderate Democrat candidate Paul Vallas to become Chicago’s next mayor. While Vallas stayed hyper-focused on crime and quality of life issues, Johnson threw around accusations of racism in his closing bid to voters.

    The Johnson & Johnson (J&J) conglomerate is more than quadrupling the amount it had previously set aside to cover its potential liabilities by allocating $8.9 billion to address allegations that their talcum baby powder caused cancer. A J&J subsidiary will re-file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and ask the court to approve a plan that would lead to one of the biggest product liability settlements in American history, according to a proposal made public on Tuesday. The $8.9 billion that J&J would give to the LTL Management subsidiary would be paid over the following 25 years. The sum is higher...

    CHICAGO, IL — After a century of electing nothing but Democrats and getting only corruption, death, and poverty in return, Chicago residents have decided to make a change to the status quo by electing a different Democrat this time. "Maybe this Democrat will be different," said one local business owner while sweeping up the broken glass from her store after getting robbed for the 15th time this year. "We tried Democrats 4 years ago, and also before that, and before that, and before that, and before that, and before that, and before that, and before that, and before that, and...

    Former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on the US to give Ukraine “what they need as fast as possible” a day after President Biden ruled out the possibility of sending F-16 fighter jets to the war-torn nation. “This is not the moment to delay any support for Ukraine. This is the moment to double down on our support. Give them what they need, whether it’s the tanks or the long-range artillery fires. They need to kick Putin out of the whole of the territory,” Johnson told Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier Tuesday during an interview on “Special Report.” Biden,...

As you can see, Johnson finally broke out of his alliteration loop with some difficulty.

    Johnson’s political muzzling silenced the primary moral and religious voices that Founder John Adams said were essential to the life of the Republic.. In 1954, then freshman U.S. senator Lyndon B. Johnson was running for re-election in a hotly-contested Democratic primary against fellow-Democrat State Representative Dudley T. Dougherty. THE NEW DEAL WITH THE DEVIL IN 1954: GIVE UP YOUR MORAL AND FREE SPEECH RIGHTS IN EXCHANGE FOR TAX WRITE-OFFS In the heat of that 1954 Texas primary campaign, Johnson introduced his now infamous “Johnson Amendment” in the U.S. Senate. His revisions further restricted the free speech of churches and religious...
