    CHICAGO — A day after new Census data showed a shrinking Chicago population, the moving company U-Haul had some news that seemed to cheer up Mayor Rahm Emanuel: People still move here. U-Haul announced Friday that Chicago is the second most "moved to" city in the nation, which excited Emanuel's office after U.S. Census numbers revealed that Chicago lost 8,638 in population last year, more than any other city. Though U-Haul only tracks its own customers and did not provide numbers that can be compared to comprehensive Census data, Emanuel said the company's announcement was telling. “This report is further...

    How to look at the bizarre turn our political life has taken. Senator Kamala Harris is a rising star in the Democratic Party, frequently mentioned on the short-list of contenders for the next presidential race. In a recent commencement speech at Howard University Harris issued a call to arms, urging her audience to rally behind the Democrats’ resistance to the Trump administration: “Graduates, indeed we have a fight ahead. This is a fight to define what kind of country we are, and it’s a fight to determine what country we will be.” Ignore for a moment the impropriety of addressing...
  • A Jersey Girl Defends Robert E. Lee

    Why Confederate monument removal is a questionable mission for all Americans, black and white. Life is funny. Turn back the clock and tell twenty-year-old me, "Girl, someday you are going to defend Confederate General Robert E. Lee." That Jersey girl would dismiss you with a short, sharp, two-syllable sentence, a sentence I cannot reproduce in a family-friendly essay. When I was young, I felt about the South what all liberal people around me felt about the South. "Ew." There's a process that sociologists call "othering." One attributes positive qualities to oneself, and attributes the opposite of those qualities to...

    The deepest and most damaging penetration of the U.S. Defense Department by an enemy agent in recent history was pulled off by a spy working for the terror-sponsoring, drug-smuggling Castro regime.   The spy’s name is Ana Belen Montes, known as "Castro’s Queen Jewel" in the intelligence community. In 2002 she was convicted of the same crimes as Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and today she serves a 25-year sentence in Federal prison. Only a plea bargain spared her from sizzling in the electric chair like the Rosenbergs. Promptly upon Montes’ conviction a Cuban spy named Gustavo Machin, who worked under...

    Abbas Disrespects Trump How the PA “president” insulted the U.S. president prior to their initial meeting. Palestinian Authority “president” Mahmoud Abbas exploited his visit with Donald Trump in the White House on May 3 to tell a lie so deceitful, it amounted to an insult: “we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace.” As many observers quickly noted, schools routinely are named after Palestinian suicide bombers, and Abbas’ party consistently glorifies murderers including on the very day Abbas met with Trump -- his Fatah party honored 12 terrorists who murdered 95 people. But that’s just...
  • Dog walking banned by Hamas 'to protect women and children'

    Is the new ban another step in Islamic extremism or is it a public safety issue? Hamas has banned walking dogs in public in the Gaza Strip in order "to protect women and children," Hamas spokesman and leading religious figure Ayman al-Batniji told the Telegraph Thursday. “In recent weeks, the phenomenon of young men walking with their dogs in the streets has widely spread. It is neither of our culture nor of our traditions. Children and women feel scared when they see dogs,” al-Batniji stated, adding that it is Hamas' "duty to maintain the safety of citizens." No specific penalty...

    The dean of a school system in the Gaza Strip who was appointed to his post by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas continues to spread classic anti-Semitic libels on official PA television, Palestinian Media Watch reported Tuesday. Imad Hamato, who has long given classes on Islam on PA television, was appointed by Abbas to head the Gaza-based Al-Azhar school system, which prepares students for Gaza’s Al-Azhar University. “Hamato now has the opportunity to transmit his venomous anti-Semitism to Palestinian youth,” PMW observed. In a lesson broadcast last week, Hamato said, “They [the Jews] are usurers. See, the usury money and...

    Jewish Press ^ | 5-15-17
    Despite Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the PFLP not even officially running, Fatah still lost to them in most of the municipal elections. The results of this Saturday’s local elections definitely did not portend well for any left-winger or U.S. official putting their hopes on the “moderate” Fatah party of current Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas retaining control of PA-controlled areas in Judea and Samaria (the so-called “West Bank”) in the long term, or after the next PA general election. Despite an official boycott by Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP),...

    A gooey substance normally wouldn’t seem like it could stop a bullet, but an Air Force Academy cadet has created just that. Air Force Academy Cadet 1st Class Hayley Weir created a goo-like substance that can stop bullets. Cadet 1st Class Hayley Weir’s interest in bullet-stopping materials was piqued when she took a chemistry class at the academy in 2014. The class was given three materials to combine in a way that could stop a bullet. “Up to that point, it was the coolest thing I’d done as a cadet,” Weir, a senior at the academy, told Air Force Times....

    Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon has officially asked the United Nations Security Council and UN Secretary-General António Guterres to put an end to the Palestinian Authority’s ‘pay to slay’ policy of paying monthly salaries to convicted terrorists. Danon slammed the open encouragement of incitement to violence and terrorist attacks by the Palestinian Authority government in a news briefing on Thursday, held at the United Nations in New York City Danon told journalists that the Palestinian Authority under the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas paid $1 billion to convicted terrorists over the past decade; more than $300 million per...

    Black bears are common in the state, but one perched in a tree in a small central Wisconsin city drew dozens of curiosity seekers. WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI — Several hours of curiosity quietly came to an end Wednesday night in a small central Wisconsin city when a big black bear climbed down a tree and ambled away. The errant bear, estimated to weigh somewhere between 200 and 300 pounds, had been perched in the large pine tree in Wisconsin Rapids since about 9 a.m. when, scared by semis and other traffic, it sought refuge 50 feet above the noisy action....

    Originally written for the Investigative Project on Terrorism. The two main political groups that claim to represent Palestinians – the Islamist terror group Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA) – have embarked on new campaigns of deception in order to gain greater international acceptance. PA President Mahmoud Abbas met with President Donald Trump last week to discuss the peace process. He blatantly lied throughout his public remarks. Speaking before Abbas, Trump said that “there cannot be lasting peace unless the Palestinian leaders speak in a unified voice against incitement to...violence and hate...All children of God must be taught to value...

    “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate Indians.” May 10, 2017 “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate Indians. “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate indians” (Che Guevara, 1955). In the historic annals of unrequited love few cases rival the affair by Chicanos with Che Guevara. I trust Che’s iconization is sufficiently documented by U.S. Chicano groups in their murals (i.e. graffiti.)  They seem to plaster this lily white Argentinian racist’s mug on practically everything they paint to celebrate their Amerindian Aztec culture. Go figure. Perhaps a word with some Bolivian Amerindians who actually experienced Che Guevara’s plans...

    Forget the symptom and consider the source for a moment. Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center A lie conceals the truth.  And ugly but hidden truths never have a chance of being acknowledged, addressed, and ameliorated.  Because of this simple truism, one of the greatest lies of our age—that violence committed in the name of Islam has nothing to do with Islam—has made an intrinsically weak Islam the scourge of the modern world, with no signs of relief on the horizon. It is, therefore, useful to expose the main strategy used by liars in...
  • Sandhill crane hunting season debated

    05/08/2017 11:07:20 AM PDT · by SJackson · 18 replies
    Hunting sandhill cranes would be just plain unsporting, according to one speaker at Monday’s Columbia County session of Conservation Congress. On the contrary, said another speaker. The crane population is strong -- so strong that many breeding pairs can’t find places to nest. Of the dozens of topics raised at the session at Portage High School, the proposal for a sandhill crane hunting season in Wisconsin drew the most extensive discussion among the approximately 60 people who attended. One of the questions from Joy Eriksen of Poynette was, “Why?” Eriksen said she coordinates Columbia County’s annual crane count, which is...
  • Wolf hunting could return to Minnesota, Wisconsin

    Gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan could find themselves in the crosshairs of hunters as soon as this fall. A ruling is expected soon from the same appeals court that recently lifted protections for wolves in Wyoming. Officials say that whether Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan can hold wolf seasons this fall would depend in part on how soon the court rules. Meanwhile, wolf-hunting supporters in Congress aren't giving up even though a Minnesota representative was instrumental in killing an effort that would have allowed the three Midwest states to resume wolf hunting.

    Couples are fighting over President Trump more than ever, and many are turning to divorce court to get out of their politically ravaged marriages. New data from Wakefield Research found that one in 10 couples, married and not, have ended their relationships in a battle of Trump. For younger millennials, it's 22 percent. And nearly one in three Americans said that political clashes over Trump have "had a negative impact on their relationship," said the report provided to the Washington Examiner. "Since Donald Trump's election, political discourse in the U.S. has been more tense and divisive than ever," Wakefield said....

    Sanctuary surge protects criminals, pillages taxpayers, and revives leftist lunacy of the 1980s. Last Thursday, religious and labor leaders gathered outside the Sacramento County Sheriff’s office to announce a new 24-hour hotline, but not to report violent criminals such as Luis Bracamontes, who gunned down deputies Danny Oliver and Michael Davis in 2014. Neither was the purpose of the hotline to field tips on terrorists such as Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who murdered 14 in San Bernardino in 2015.  The purpose of the new hotline is to report federal immigration agents conducting enforcement sweeps. According to Sacramento Area Congregations...
  • Is It Racist, Xenophobic, and Imperialist to Criticize Islam?

    What does it mean when former and current Muslims point to problems in the “Religion of Peace”? "You may not criticize Islam. You do not speak Arabic. You don't come from a Muslim society. You are a white supremacist, imperialist xenophobe and you don't like foreign, brown people." So Islam's apologists insist. Brooklyn activist Linda Sarsour epitomizes this strategy for suppressing critique of Islam. "My hijab is my hoodie," she insisted, in a 2012 CNN op-ed. With the "hoodie" reference, Sarsour explicitly linked herself with Trayvon Martin, a young black male who scuffled with, and was shot by George Zimmerman...

    Turkish autocrat Recep Tayyip Erdogan is coming to Washington, DC, on May 16 loaded for bear.  He has an ambitious agenda and apparently feels he can achieve it all because he holds “trump” cards against the President of the United States. Erdogan and his proxies have publicly said they want to convince the United States to jettison its budding alliance with the Syrian Democratic Union (PYD) and its armed wing, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), the Kurdish group that has become the tip of the spear in the fight against ISIS in Syria. On this point, they will encounter resistance...
