    Even though Memorial Day is three weeks away, Chicago police officials are ramping up staffing to head off possible holiday weekend violence later this month. An internal CPD memo obtained by the ABC7 I-Team Monday night, and now being read at police district roll calls, orders that all days off be canceled for one full week between May 24 and 31. Officers may also be put on 12-hour work shifts during that time "if operational needs arise," according to the memo. It is expected that downtown retail corridors will get special attention during that period as well. CPD has increased...

    President Donald Trump announced Monday his plan for a political rally in Casper, Wyoming. The president is expected to rally with Harriet Hageman, a Republican primary challenger to Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). The rally is scheduled for Saturday, May 28, 2022, at 4:00 PM MDT on Memorial Day weekend. Hageman was chosen by Trump in September 2021 to challenge Cheney despite a crowded field of interested candidates. “Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First. Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats’ number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney,” Trump wrote at...
  • GOP congresswoman now packing heat after her home was targeted: 'I'm not going to be intimidated'

    Republican Rep. Nancy Mace of South Carolina is standing her ground. Mace's house was vandalized over Memorial Day weekend. Since then, she goes about her business armed as police search for the culprit. "When they show up to your house, and physically just, you know, try to destroy it with graffiti, it's personal and it's invasive and it's violating, and it doesn't feel good," said Mace, according to Fox News. "I now go to the gun range almost weekly to practice shooting," she said. Mace warned anyone coming at her or her family in a June tweet.
  • Michigan Republican Rep. Pete Meijer slams his OWN party for being 'treacherous snakes' who are 'salivating over civil war' after voting against the riot commission

    Republican Rep. Pete Meijer appeared to condemn members of his own party as 'treacherous snakes' in a Memorial Day message that accused them of 'salivating for civil war.' Meijer, a U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq and as a conflict analyst in Afghanistan, voted to impeach President Trump after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and his latest broadside followed calls by some Trump supporters to secede from the United States. 'I struggle with Memorial Day,' he wrote in the first of string of tweets that criticized the 'holier than thous' deploying 'hot takes.'

    Students in Washington DC eagerly signed a fake petition to ‘cancel Memorial Day’, agreeing that the holiday “celebrates American Imperialism.”Campus Reform reporter Addison Smith conducted the experiment to get an idea of how many students would happily forget about the day of remembrance for fallen US heroes.Smith managed to get 50 signatures in a short time, with some condemning the holiday before even reading the petition.One student said “I don’t think Memorial Day should be a thing that we celebrate… I feel like it’s a celebration of U.S. imperialism and colonialism.”The student added “I didn’t really think in this way...

    Flanders Fields, Belgium, 1915: Poppies, the hue of human blood, blow in the gentle breeze. The scarlet blooms decorate thousands of Allied soldier graves. Graves of mud transfused with the blood of fallen brothers. 1,043 American soldiers perished in Belgium during World War I, 368 of whom are interred at Flanders Field American Cemetery. Today, Memorial Day, we remember their courage—and the courage of all American veterans—by revisiting the story of the vermilion poppies of Flanders Fields.Flanders Fields is the name for WWI battlefields on the border of northern Belgium and France. The Battle of Passchendaele and the Second Battle...

    Some years ago my wife bought her Dad a book called "A Father's Legacy" which has blank pages for Fathers to write thoughts on memories of various activities that affected their own lives. One page asked the question, "If you were in the Armed Forces, how did your service affect your life?" He entered the Korean war as an infantryman and carried a Browning Automatic Rifle and a 1911 in his holster. I have a photo of him fresh off a combat patrol holding his BAR at his side & it was almost as tall next to him as he...

    Biden's Memorial Day Speech | May 31, 2021 | Tolerance Sucks Rocks
    I caught some of President Biden's Memorial Day Speech on Newsmax earlier today. Like some commentators, I noticed that Mr. Biden seemed a bit angry in at least one part. But I also noticed something strange. As his speech was apparently winding into its last few minutes, and he was discussing things such as the "right to vote" and other points, he said something that seemed oddly placed: "Parenthetically, goodbye taps." I can only surmise that near the end of the teleprompter spool, that had been inserted to remind Biden of what came after he finished, and he said it...

    President Joe Biden honored the nation's war dead on Memorial Day by taking part in a solemn ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery where he said Americans have long fought for 'rule of the people' and warned of aspirations for 'autocracy' and dictatorship. 'Democracy itself is in peril – here at home and around the world,' Biden cautioned. 'A struggle for democracy is taking place around the world,' Biden said in a 23 minute speech at Arlington. 'Democracy means the rule of the people. The rule of the people. Not the rule of monarchs....

    On this Memorial Day weekend Kamala Harris addressed the graduates of the Naval Academy. She talked about solar panels, hoped that everyone would “enjoy the long weekend,” and totally forgot to mention anything about, oh, I don’t know, Memorial Day. Kamala missed a golden opportunity to express admiration for all the sacrifices that these graduates will make to ensure that our country remains safe. She also could have expressed appreciation for all the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice on remote battlefields scattered across our globe. Memorial Day for Kamala isn’t memorable at all. Apparently it’s just...
  • American Division Is Now a Strategic Weakness: Part 2

    05/31/2021 6:20:51 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | May 31, 2021 | Jason Killmeyer
    On this Memorial Day, we remember our country’s war dead. We reflect not only on the why of the great world wars of the last century, but on the equal bravery of the hard men and women who died fighting the jihadist menace around the globe. A trusted and dispassionate military is key to the survival of our country, and freedom can tolerate no other. In Part One of this piece, I argue that American division can now be categorized as a strategic weakness. I also argue that there are three perilous trends that exist as a result of our...
  • General Patton: Why We Still Remember This American Icon

    Source: Provided by Robert OrlandoMost Americans recall no more than three World War II generals: Dwight Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur, and the best-remembered ultimate warrior: General George S. Patton. Memory is legacy; memory is honor; memory warns the young and naive. Of all the great WWII legends, Patton, aka “Old Blood and Guts” and Winston Churchill alone, have stories and characters grand enough to take over and “own” Academy Award-winning film classics. Eighty years before today’s “anything goes,” culture, Patton proclaimed, “you can’t run an army without profanity, and it has to be eloquent profanity. An army without profanity couldn’t fight...

    How? If we could ask those we honor this Memorial Day how best to do it, what would they say? This year, I submit that they would answer differently than they might have in most years past. I suspect many would say to forget their names and their deeds for now. They would ask us, instead, to see what they would no doubt see with clarity: that America, particularly Illinois, is allowing the slow undoing of the what they died for. They would ask us to honor them by committing ourselves to reversing course. They would ask us to consider...

Biden slurred his way through a 9 minute speech. “I had a long conversation for two hours recently with President Xi, making it clear to him we could do nothing but speak out for human rights around the world because that’s who we are,” Biden said. “I’ll be meeting with President Putin in a couple weeks in Geneva making it clear that we will not stand by and let him abuse those rights.” 7,300 people tuned in to the White House’s YouTube channel to watch Biden...
