Just when you thought Hillary Clinton was on a losing downslide–due to a couple of self-inflicted wounds–she appears to have bottomed out and begun a slow but sure incremental uptick. Little doubt that she now leads Donald Trump nationally by 3-4 points again, just as the first debate comes upon us. (I write, of course, prior to that event.) Trump still holds slim leads or ties in some major battleground states, but at the moment they cannot put him over the top. Further, the battleground...

The 2016 contest for Cook County Circuit Court Clerk is one of mind over matter. In short, for the great bulk of voters, it’s out of mind and doesn’t matter. For any politician or political candidate, a quick indictment is good to have…as long as the indictee is your opponent. For Diane Shapiro, the 2016 Republican candidate for the office, an indictment of 16-year incumbent Dorothy Brown before Nov. 8 is potentially the difference between victory and defeat. Or maybe not. Brown manages –...

They finally nailed Donald Trump and his five years of being the liar-in-chief about Obama not being born in the USA–and now it’s time to go after him on a comment as sexist as the birther myth was racist. His brief, unapologetic statement “President Barack Hussein Obama was born in the United States. Period.” was coupled with another outright lie, that Hillary Clinton’s campaign started the birther “movement.” The weekend papers and talk shows chewed this...

Jeffrey Leef is a Republican and a political novice who decided to challenge Chicago’s Democratic machine by running for Congress. He had no expectation of defeating incumbent Rep. Danny Davis, whose 7th district hasn’t elected a Republican in 70 years. This was an idealistic pursuit by a citizen in defense of the endangered two-party system in Cook County. Besides, what could possibly go wrong? Read more in the Chicago Tribune

What have 85 years of uninterrupted Democratic rule and unremitting pro-gres-sive dogma gotten Chicago? Murderous gang wars with no armistice in sight. What makes Chicago special? Decades of disastrously failed social engineering. It began with the post-World War II housing shortage and public acceptance of the New Deal’s canon that the government should insert itself into the housing market. The underlying—and naïve—assumption was that poor people would be transformed into productive...

Stephen Boulton and Dan Kelley successfully uphold the ability of the GOP to be represented by Republicans. Via Stephen Boulton on Facebook Dan Kelley represented Dr. Jeffrey Leef, our Congressional candidate in the 7th District, before the Chicago Board of Elections against an Objection brought by one of the disqualified Ward Committeemen. To win, the Objector had to be in fact a Republican Ward Committeeman, which put the entire disqualification issue before the Board. Dan did a good job, but...

From Channel 2 Some Chicago State University students are facing a frigid problem. No hot water in their dorm rooms. They haven’t had any hot water at all for two weeks, CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports in this Original Report. This is the latest problem to pop up at the embattled university, which underwent lay-offs and a forced early graduation just last spring due to state funding issues. And many students aren’t happy about it. Declining enrollment at CSU Chicago State enrollment: 2012: 6,107 2013:...

Okay, poll cats, though you may have been agonizing–or beaming–about each and every presidential poll since the primaries began, all those cheers and tears were wasted because the polls until now have been next to worthless insofar as being predictive.  Even the websites that specialize in aggregating and analyzing them would tell you that except they want you to keep coming back. Today, however, I give you permission to start paying attention, beginning with the polls that come out...
