Poor Mayor Rahm Emanuel, obviously running for third term come 2019, has become a political ping-pong ball, paddled between the Chicago Police Department and the African American and progressive communities. He won strong support from African Americans in both his 2011 and 2015 victories–which was decisive in the latter. That’s because he had the backing of President Barack Obama, who actually cut commercials for Emanuel in 2015 when County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia...

Was your response to the devastation of  Puerto Rico so slow, bureaucratic and inadequate because you were too busy tweeting against football players? Or because you didn’t realize Puerto Ricans are Americans and the US has a responsibility to its territories, even if–as you so quaintly put it–“they are an island, surrounded by water, lots of water”? (Amazing observation, sir.) Or was it because they speak Spanish–the same as Mexicans–and here they usually...

Next Monday (October 9th) will be exactly ten years from the stock market peak before the Financial Panic of 2008. Imagine that Doctor Doom, the perceived “best analyst in the business,” told you on that night, when markets peaked, that financial authorities would allow mark-to-market accounting rules to burn the banking system to the ground, with many well-known financial firms failing or being taken over by the government. You knew the unemployment rate was going to soar to 10% and...

The Feds said they won’t release his 302’s because there were lawyers involved. Gregory Craig was the attorney who wrote Obamas internal investigation report given to the Feds BEFORE Obama was interviewed. Soooooo the Feds knew it was filled with lies and misleading when they sat down with Obama for 2 hours. Now hindsight being 20/20 we now know that Fitzgerald went to work for Craig starting pay $3.5 million and that their own prosecutor witness contradicted this report. The only media...

Let ‘s momentarily leave  the bizarre menage-a- trois of Donald, Chuck and Nancy and return to Illinois Democrats’ main target, Governor Bruce “The Ruiner” Rauner. He’s the state’s least popular politician–with the possible exception of Speaker of the House and Democratic Chairman Michael Madigan. But despite his low numbers, he has tons of money–a geyser of his own dollars, replenished by the state’s richest person, Ken Griffin. Remember,...

City Treasurer Kurt Summers announced Monday morning he was depositing $20 million of the city’s funds in Illinois Service Federal Savings and Loan, breathing new life into the last black-owned bank in the city. Summers reportedly has been working on the deal for over a year to invest city funds into the community bank headquartered at 4619 S.

For a couple of decades now, every time there is a mass shooting the country seems to be on the verge of a serious discussion about gun safety and how to achieve it. But thanks to the good offices of the National Rifle Association and its kin, we always cut the discussion short–if it gets under way at all. This past couple of weeks have seen even more death and destruction and suffering  caused by record climate events than all the  recent shootings combined, but whenever someone raises...

One would think damn near every anti-Trumper would know that violence from the left does nothing but play right  into Trump’s hands, but those who call themselves “antifa”–meaning anti-fascists–and their sympathizers don’t seem to get it. The antifas and their overlapping relatives, contemporary anarchists, haven’t killed anyone to my knowledge, but they’re known for carrying bats and assaulting or fighting with Trump supporters at rallies and meetings–also...
