    The Chicago Police Department says it is conducting "a very comprehensive review" after the city experienced one of its most violent Fourth of July weekends in recent years, with at least 101 people shot between late Friday afternoon and early Wednesday. "We're doing a debriefing," said chief police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. "The mood here is frustration." The review will include an analysis of how "amateur fireworks" might have affected the ShotSpotter system, which captures audio of gunfire and attempts to pinpoint its location for quicker deployment of officers. The system is deployed in the Englewood and Harrison districts, traditionally among...

    Former President Barack Obama in Montreal this week warned the world against income inequality and the concentration of wealth, all while pulling down $7,700 per minute at his $400,000 speech. Obamaís first post-presidency address on Canadian soil was loaded with anti-Trump, anti-capitalism and anti-American rhetoric. Big surprise there. Obama said that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful, NBC reported and noted that Obama is now ďstriving to be an international community organizer.Ē He said the U.S. and other nations showed there was a better way ďin creating an international order that was...

    ďToo often,Ē Obama lectured Wall Street in March 2008, ďweíve excused and even embraced an ethic of greed, corner cutting and inside dealing that has always threatened the long-term stability of our economic system.

    If thereís one thing that Democrats excel at itís organizing; otherwise we wouldnít have wound up with a community organizer as president. But even in defeat Democrats organize; thatís why theyíve been staging protests around the country ever since Trump won. Their latest lamentations can be seen and heard at Republican town hall meetings around the country. The Dem overlords have instructed† the ďgrassrootsĒ† ďfolksĒ on how to attend and disrupt the meetings - two things that Democrats are particularly good at: participation and protest.House Democrats participate in sit-in protesting the blocking of their gun control billSo itís no surprise...
  • OFA Made the DNC DOA: Obamaís Community Organization Ruined the Democratic Party

    OFA is DOA to Democratic Party operatives. If they don't control those unprincipled activists, the DNC will be DOA next! Well, this is welcome news, isnít it? Organizing for Action has turned into a big fat failure for the Democratic Party. Who would have guessed? Those obnoxious organizers are so out of touch with reality. They donít seem to recognize that working men and women of all backgrounds are barely making ends meet. Democrats really believed that a bunch of spoiled, screaming razor-blade snowflakes invading town halls and lecturing people about their Western, white privilege was going to be well-received.

    He entered the White House a living symbol, breaking a color line that stood for 220 years. Barack Obama took office, and race immediately became a focal point in a way that was unprecedented in American history. No matter his accomplishments, he seemed destined to be remembered foremost as the first black man to lead the worldís most powerful nation. But eight years later, Obamaís racial legacy is as complicated as the president himself. [Ö] Perhaps most strikingly, the presidentís successor, Donald Trump, is seen by many as the antithesis of a colorblind society, a one-time leader of the ďbirtherĒ...

    Iíve heard newscasters and pundits say the Trump organization just didnít get it. Maybe they overlooked the rules. Maybe they didnít understand them. Maybe they never read them or acted on them. But what if Donald Trump, the master negotiator, the brilliant media tactician, the unparalleled manipulator of public opinion, DID know all about the rules? What if he didnít bother going after those delegates because he knew it would benefit him more profoundly if he didnít Ė turning what was perceived by his supporters and the general public unfamiliar with the arcane rules of the GOP into a national...

    Donald Trump is firing back at President Barack Obama, who said on Tuesday that he does not think he will be elected as president, because it's not like "hosting a talk show or a reality show. "It's not [about] being a community organizer, which is what he was, that was about it," the real estate tycoon told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "I built one of the greatest companies, some of the great assets in the world, very little debt and tremendous cash flow. It's the thinking our country needs." But, Trump said, it's a "badge of honor" for...

    Americans have short memories. For many, the recent terrorist attacks on Paris may have already slipped their minds as they focus on shopping, decorating and baking. We interrupt this holiday season for an urgent message: These are serious times that call for serious leaders. But serious leaders are elected by serious people. And when the time comes to confront evil, many Americans are not serious people. In the last few weeks, two Russian planes have been shot down (one by Turkey and the other by the Islamic State), French President Francois Hollande and Russian President Vladimir Putin have teamed up...

    A Burnsville DFLer's campaign for the state House abruptly ended Sunday morning within hours of him posting on social media that ISIS "isn't necessarily evil" and is "made up of people doing what they think is best for their community." The Twitter posting Saturday by Dan Kimmel, coming as the world's emotions remain raw from Friday's terror attacks in Paris, brought swift rebuke from others on Twitter. House Minority Leader Paul Thissen, DFL-Minneapolis, called for Kimmel to give up his campaign. "I'm folding up the campaign tent," Kimmel told the Star Tribune. He later issued a written apology and called...

    Submitted by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog, Have you ever come across someone on the Internet that you suspected was a paid government troll? Well, there is a very good chance that you were not imagining things. Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now have solid proof that paid government trolls are using ďpsychology-based influence techniquesĒ on social media websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Documents leaked by Snowden also reveal that government agents have been conducting denial-of-service attacks, flooding social media websites with thinly veiled propaganda and have been purposely attempting to warp public...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged Tuesday to improve the city's police department after meeting with the family of a man who was fatally injured in police custody. "We're here to hold your hands and provide support," Lynch said in a meeting with faith and community leaders, including members of Congress. The new attorney general met privately at the University of Baltimore with Freddie Gray's family, days after the state's attorney charged six police officers involved in Gray's arrest. Gray's injury in police custody and death a week later sparked protests and riots that prompted Maryland's governor to bring in the...

    Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog, If the U.S. economy really is improving, then why are big U.S. retailers permanently shutting down thousands of stores? The ďretail apocalypseĒ that I have written about so frequently appears to be accelerating. As you will see below, major U.S. retailers have announced that they are closing more than 6,000 locations, but economic conditions in this country are still fairly stable. So if this is happening already, what are things going to look like once the next recession strikes? For a long time, I have been pointing to 2015 as a...

    Near the end of 2007, Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett met with Al Sharpton in New York City and began to cement a relationship that would eventually make the inflammatory activist the presidentís ďgo-to manĒ on race, according to multiple sources. The backdrop to the incipient Obama-Sharpton alliance was the then-senatorís 2008 presidential campaign, which still hadnít locked away the black vote, and the political cross-currents created by two other controversial reverends, Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright. That tentative relationship has now grown into a full-blown partnership that has vastly increased the once-shunned Sharptonís influence and prestige and elevated him into...
