  • Property taxes jump, and jaws drop ( Chicago )

    Crain's Chicago Business ^ | July 28, 2016 | Dennis Rodkin
    The property tax bill on Jeff and Roberta Price's Lincoln Park home was about $400 in 1977, the first year they lived there. It's been going up ever since but rarely with the jolt of this year's 63 percent increase. The increase, from $8,652 to $14,104, has the couple re-considering their plan to retire in the Kenmore Avenue home, where they raised their kids. They're looking at homes in Indiana "as a backup plan" for the time when Roberta retires in a few years, said Jeff, who is already retired. "We have lived in our home for almost 39 years...

    Watching Sen. Bernie Sanders hoarsely shouting his praises of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention — and knowing that the hacked emails of the corrupt Democratic National Committee (DNC) reveal its machinations to undermine Bernie’s campaign — did you wonder as I did why Bernie would be so servile? The Yiddish words schmuck and schlemiel come to mind. I thought that Hillary probably bought Bernie off with promises of some plum assignment in her administration. But I should know better because the Clintons are nasty pieces of work who wouldn’t use the carrot when the stick is so much...

    Susanna Ruth Makinson can blame a lot of things for why her then-husband was shot dead eight years ago while patrolling the streets of Fort Myers, Florida, the first time since 1930 a police officer had been gunned down in the city. That’s because, in a distant way out of her—and his—control, Andrew Widman’s death felt preventable; his killer, Abel Arango, was an illegal immigrant and convicted felon who was released from detention because his native Cuba wouldn’t take him back. But though Makinson wishes the government would do more to fix this little-known problem in the immigration system, to...

    Actress Sigourney Weaver offered a dark picture of the world’s future during her speech at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night. In her remarks, Weaver warned Americans that if we don’t act to combat climate change, doom is imminent. The DNC then aired a video featuring Weaver as the narrator. “It’s happening now,” Weaver says in the video. “The droughts, the record heat waves,” etc. “This is not something we’ve seen before,” she claims. “Our children are at risk.”

    Appearing on Fox News on Monday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke excoriated speakers at the Democratic National Convention, contending that the party is “embracing criminality.” While it is certainly gratifying to hear a champion of law and order (Clarke even asserted that Hillary Clinton is a “confirmed liar” who left people to die in Benghazi and who should have been criminally indicted) speak the truth, it is even more gratifying to see the play that other anti-Hillary media is getting, and the distaste members of her own party have evidenced for the first woman nominated to run for president. “Clinton...

    The IRS confirmed in a letter it is looking into claims of “pay-to-play” practices at the Clinton Foundation, after dozens of Republican lawmakers requested a review of potential “criminal conduct” at the organization founded by the family at the center of this week’s Democratic National Convention. Commissioner John Koskinen wrote in a July 22 letter to Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn that the issue has been “forwarded” to the IRS “Exempt Organizations Examinations” program in Dallas. “This program considers all referrals and will send you a separate acknowledgement letter when it receives your information,” he wrote, in a letter first reported...

    With friends like Saudi Arabia, who needs enemies? Last week we learned that the Saudi government almost certainly played a role in the 9/11 terrorist attack and that our government kept that secret from the public for about fourteen years. A brief history of the coverup is in order here. In 2002, a joint congressional committee investigated the intelligence failures that led to the attack. That committee found suspicious clues that pointed toward Saudi Arabia--an official "ally" of the United States known for exporting radical Wahhabi Islam across the world. In a 28-page summary, the committee detailed the connections between...

Why would I believe someone who jacked up his speech prices when his wife became Secretary of State and someone who would just lie about Hussein having WMD’s? Bill said he was going to correct the cartoonish depiction the Republicans gave of his wife but I believe I have spotted some things he must have left out inadvertently.

    Recorded voicemails were added to the Wikileaks file collection for the DNC. if the DNC used a VoIP (voice over IP) system, ALL of their conversations on the system are digital files and could be part of a hack. This wouldn't cover cell conversations, but would cover any phone calls taking place from the office. HuffPo suggested a couple days ago this could be, "Bigger Than Watergate." Indeed, it could. If what we've seen already in emails comprises the type of communications typical of the DNC, might make for some entertaining listening. Think of who might have called the DNC...

In the past, CDBG funds have been distributed to a variety of nonprofit and non-governmental entities throughout Douglas County. Both commissioners voiced their concerns of the far-reaching rules, regulations and compliance requirements hidden deep within HUD’s updated CDBG application.

Terry McAuliffe fueled new distrust of Hillary Clinton among liberal Democrats this week with a declaration that the presidential nominee was likely to reverse her position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership after the election.The Clinton campaign swiftly rejected the idea that she would waver on TPP and called her longtime friend and chairman of her 2008 campaign “flat wrong.” But Republican nominee Donald Trump seized the moment, saying that McAuliffe revealed Clinton’s true nature as a free trader — and a flip-flopper whom voters shouldn’t trust.

    Right now, prisoner #47042-083, Abdurahman Alamoudi, sits in his cell in a federal prison in Ashland, Kentucky. It's a long way down from being one of Hillary Clinton's favorite colleagues. Alamoudi organized White House events during the Bill Clinton administration. Under Hillary's supervision, he held official positions: Alamoudi was strategically placed at the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department. That is, until he was arrested and convicted in a bizarre Libyan intelligence/al-Qaeda assassination plot to kill the Saudi crown prince. Later, he was identified by the Treasury Department as an Al-Qaeda fundraiser who had operated inside the United...

Trump held yet another press conference Wednesday morning in which he went after Clinton for not holding press conferences. Gold’s tone with...

This ended a long struggle over school-based Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender studies, playing out for decades inside and outside the state. The San Francisco Chronicle called the event “a landmark move that puts the ongoing LGBT civil rights fight into the mainstream of public education.” The newly adopted state curriculum is “not only acknowledging diversity,” commented state superintendent of public instruction Tom Torlakson with customary...

    The Federalist ^ | July 27th, 2016 | By Sean Davis
    "This has gone from being a curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue." After taunting Hillary Clinton by asking Russian hackers to release 30,000 e-mails she deleted, Donald Trump finally forced Clinton’s campaign to admit that her unsanctioned e-mail server scheme was a “national security issue.”

    The Hill ^ | July 27th, 2016 | By Jessie Hellmann
    House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) office issued a tough statement on Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday that warmed him to stay out of the U.S. election. “Russia is a global menace led by a devious thug. Putin should stay out of this election," Ryan's spokesman Brendan Buck said in the statement. The strong language was notable given comments from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump earlier in which he said he hoped Russia had presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails from her use of a private email server. “If they hacked, they probably have her 33,000 emails. I hope they...

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager can’t guarantee that the Democratic presidential candidate will hold a press conference between now and the election and laughed off questions about why she doesn’t gaggle with reporters. Speaking at a luncheon hosted by the Wall Street Journal, campaign manager Robby Mook burst out laughing when asked if Clinton would hold court with reporters before Election Day. “We’ll see,” he said. Clinton has still not held a press conference this year. According to an analysis by the Washington Post, it has been more than 230 days since Clinton last held one on Dec. 4, 2015.
  • Marilyn Mosby Slams Police Investigators, Baltimore Judge In Fiery Press Conference

    Marilyn Mosby’s cases against six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray has been by all accounts an utter failure, but the state’s attorney was nevertheless defiant on Wednesday when she announced her office is dropping charges against the three officers who still faced trial. The 36-year-old Mosby, who became a media darling last year when she announced charges against the officers for the arrest and death of Gray, complained during a press conference that the deck was stacked against her and her team of prosecutors. “While to this day we stand by the decisions, the legal theories,...

    Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine told Telemundo that House Speaker Paul Ryan would work with a President Hillary Clinton to enact amnesty within Clinton’s first 100 days in office.

Ryan will lead the GOP to embrace legalization.

    Hillary Clinton's most effective TV ad focuses on the faces of young children who sit quietly, staring wide-eyed at screens, watching Republican Donald Trump shout wild, angry and violent words. It's a powerful TV commercial, masterfully done, evoking child abuse while asking: "Our children are watching. What example will we set for them?" It is an ad designed to terrify parents and have them run into the warm, loving and omniscient embrace of Democrat Hillary Clinton. Because with Hillary, it's all about the kids. Unless, of course, the kids are those thousands of idealistic young people -- many of them...

    George Soros is back. The billionaire investor, who scaled back his political giving after a then-unprecedented $27 million spending spree to try to defeat George Bush in 2004, has quietly reemerged as a leading funder of Democratic politics — and as a leading bogeyman of conservatives.

    Rising sea levels due to hurricanes and tidal flooding intensified by climate change will put military bases along the U.S. East Coast and Gulf Coast at risk, according to a report released on Wednesday. Nonprofit group the Union of Concerned Scientists analyzed 18 military installations that represent more than 120 coastal bases nationwide to weigh the impact of climate change on their operations. Faster rates of sea level rises in the second half of this century could mean that tidal flooding will become a daily occurrence for some installations, pushing useable land needed for military training and testing into tidal...
