    To the surprise of no one who’s ever listened to a single Donald Trump campaign speech, the Attorney General made an announcement last week in which he signaled that “sanctuary cities” were going to lose access to some federal grants and DoJ funding. The howls of outrage immediately followed, including various claims from the left that he can’t do that and all the usual protests over the limits of federal power. Among the cities under discussion was Chicago, famous for needing a lot of help in the law enforcement arena, but not willing to do anything to support immigration law...

  • Among Chicago's black voters, disenchantment grows with Mayor Emanuel

    Reuters ^ | September 30, 2014 | BY MARY WISNIEWSKI
    Rahm Emanuel won election as mayor of Chicago three years ago in part because of his strength in the African-American community, but enough black voters have since soured on him that a black labor leader is emerging as a potential rival in the city's February election. Emanuel easily won the majority of voters in every African-American ward in 2011 to become mayor of Chicago, the nation's third-largest city. Since then, a persistently high murder rate, the closing of 50 public schools and a sense that Emanuel is out of touch have hurt his position and invited a bid from Karen...

    Nineteen people were shot across the South and West sides from Thursday evening through early Friday morning -- 13 of them wounded over a 30-minute period, authorities say. The overnight shootings peaked between 9:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. That's when eight people, many of them teens, were shot at 79th Street and Essex Avenue about 9:30 p.m. Then two men were wounded in the Ida B. Wells / Darrow Homes complex at about 9:25 p.m., police said. The men, 27 and 33, were shot in the 600 block of East 37th Street and taken to the University of Chicago Hospitals,...

How is it in the White House for women?" the questioner asks. "Since I'm not a woman, it's hard for me to answer that," Daley says. "I read this in the book," Daley continues, referencing the latest Ron Suskind book that alleges poor treatment of women in the Obama White House, "but that was during my...

    WASHINGTON -- If President Ronald Reagan were alive to celebrate his 100th birthday this week, "he would be disturbed by the level of vitriol" coming from his own Republican party. He also would be "furious" at recent GOP efforts to block an arms control treaty with Russia given that eliminating nuclear weapons was a signature issue he cared deeply about. So says his youngest child, Ron Reagan, in an interview with AOL News. An unapologetic liberal whose new memoir, "My Father at 100," has mostly garnered attention for the revelation that his father may have shown early signs of Alzheimer's...

    When Ron Reagan Jr. called into WFLA-AM 970's top-rated AM Tampa Bay show Wednesday to discuss the book he wrote about his dad, My Father at 100: A Memoir, co-host Tedd Webb couldn't resist saying what was on his mind. So he called the youngest son of America's 40th president an "a--hole" in mid interview. "This has nothing to do with political discourse it's about family," Webb, 61, told the St. Petersburg Times. A staunch conservative, he said it was the first time he ever used such a profanity on air in a radio career stretching back to the...

    In Ron Reagan Jr.s new book, My Father at 100, he says his father, President Ronald Reagan, exhibited signs of mental lapse during the end of his first term in office. And although Ron Reaganhas since backtracked from some of those claims, there is still the question did President Ronald Reagan show signs of mental deterioration while in office?According to Barbara Walters, the answer is no. Walters was the moderator of the 1984 presidential debate between then-Democratic presidential nominee Walter Mondale and Reagan, which is where Ron Reagan alleged his father first showed signs of Alzheimers.The 100th birthday of...

    Ron Reagan, Jr. is on GMA right now. He is the oddest, most defensive guy. He acts like he's been caught doing something really wrong (which I believe he has by disparaging his father) and is hugely uncomfortable being interviewed. He's definitely in it for the money as I say. He claims he called Nancy the night before and asked her what he should tell them if they ask what she thinks and she said 'tell them I love it, made me cry, blah blah blah'...and I thought she could've gone on to say 'and I could finally get you...

    Reagan Son Claims Dad Had Alzheimer's as President 2011 is a big year for Ronald Reagan fans, being the centennial of his February 6 birth in Tampico, Ill. But youngest son Ron Reagan is spoiling the good cheer with a new book that suggests the Gipper suffered from Alzheimer's disease while in the White House, a claim dismissed by Reagan's doctors and outside experts. "Had the diagnosis been made in, say, 1987, would he have stepped down?" Ron asks, regarding the disease confirmed in 1994. "I believe he would have," he writes in My Father At 100: A Memoir, due...

    Sarah Palin may be known as a pit bull, but Rep. Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obamas new chief of staff, is the real pit bull whose favorite target has always been Republicans. Let us resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long, Obama said in his election night speech. Yet as his first personnel decision, Obama chose a man known as Rahmbo because of his hyper-partisan, bare-knuckle tactics that were honed in Chicago-style politics. Emanuel has called himself a Vince Lombardi Democrat because he believes that Winning...

    Paul Begala refers to Rep. Rahm Emanuels style as a cross between a hemorrhoid and a toothache. His stint as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has been notable for his clashes with DNC Chairman Howard Dean over strategy, resources, and the direction of the party. A former aide to President Clinton, he was known as Rahm-bo among friend and foe alike. Schooled in the rough and tumble of Chicago politics, he was a senior adviser to Richard Daleys successful 1989 mayoral bid Friends and enemies agree that the key to Emanuels success is his legendary intensity.
