    Seven people have been shot during one attack on Friday night on the South Side, Chicago police said. The shooting happened about 8:05 p.m. in the 1600 block of West 65th Street in the West Englewood neighborhood, said Officer Norma Pelayo, who was citing preliminary information. Further details were not immediately available. Other Friday shootings left a 27-year-old man fatally wounded and three others wounded. A “young male’’ between the ages of 15 and 17 shot himself in the head following a foot pursuit with police in the West Side’s Lawndale neighborhood, according to Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. It...

    The Rev. Gregory Livingston, of New Hope Baptist Church, said Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) has "blood on his hands," and is allegedly "sitting on" millions of dollars in Department of Housing and Urban Development funds that could be helping the affected neighborhoods. "Rahm's words do nothing for that family," Livingston said of a mother of a 17-year-old shot and killed over the weekend amid the violence. . . . "Trump, send the National Guard down here. Give us a breather so we can figure this out. Yes, let's talk, bc we have to make some changes here.

    President Trump on Thursday blamed Chicago leaders for what he described as an unbelievable surge in gun violence in the city, his first public comments since more than 70 people were shot there over the weekend. Trump, who has threatened to send in federal officers to manage Chicago's crime and violence, brought up last weekend's violence during his opening remarks at a roundtable discussion on prison reform. "We must strengthen community bonds with law enforcement, including city's like Chicago that have been an absolute and total disaster," Trump told the room of governors, attorneys general and White House staff at...

    On June 21, 2016, Chicago police pulled Spencer Byrd over for a broken turn signal. Byrd says his signal wasn't broken, but that detail would soon be the least of his worries. Ever since, Byrd has been trapped in one of the city's most confusing bureaucratic mazes, deprived of his car and his ability to work. He now owes the city thousands of dollars for the pleasure. Byrd, 50, lives in Harvey, Illinois, a corrupt, crime-ridden town south of Chicago where more than 35 percent of the populace lives below the poverty line. He's a carpenter by trade, but until...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel slammed President Trump's decision to rescind the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy on Tuesday, declaring the Windy city a "Trump-free Zone." DACA was implemented in 2012 as a safeguard protecting some children of immigrants who entered the United States illegally, and Emanuel's response to the safety net's removal on Tuesday was firm and critical.
  • Sessions: Sanctuary city Chicago's hostility to law-enforcement protection 'astounding'

    08/08/2017 11:16:13 AM PDT · by johnk · 27 replies ^ | Published August 07, 2017 | Fox News
    The attorney general called the “open hostility” against protecting law enforcement -- while protecting criminal aliens -- “astounding” given the influx of Chicago’s violence crime. “The city’s leaders cannot follow some laws and ignore others and reasonably expect this horrific situation to improve,” Sessions continued. The grants, named for former New York City police officer Edward Byrne, who was murdered in 1988, would provide $3.2 million to Chicago, to be used for police vehicles. Funding from the grant is a small fraction of the city's budget. A requirement added to the grants would force local jurisdictions to report to federal...

    (CHICAGO) Mayor Emanuel says he’s going to sue the Trump Justice Dept on Monday over its new Sanctuary City rules. New rules just out prevent Sanctuary Cities like Chicago to get certain law enforcement grants and so the mayor says Chicago will file suit to kill the rules and get the millions in question. In an interview with WLS-AM for Sunday’s edition of “Bill Cameron and Connected to Chicago”, the mayor said “We are not going to be put in a position of choosing who we are as a welcoming city and strengthening our police dept. These are exactly the...

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel formally announced Wednesday the city's support of the Paris climate agreement as Chicago welcomed mayors and leaders from around the world for a three-day conference about the global role of cities. The Chicago Council on Global Affairs' gathering seeks to get civic leaders and policy makers to brainstorm on the future influence of cities on the world around us. This year's focus was economics, and the discussion including growing concern about the impact of environmental policy on cities. "The decisions we make in the next two to three years will determine what our cities look like in...

Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart and put the stumbling block of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them? Mortify ... your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

  • What are the "O Antiphons"?

    12/16/2015 10:09:34 PM PST · by Salvation · 52 replies ^ | 2003 | FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS
    FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS What are the "O Antiphons"? The O Antiphons refer to the seven antiphons that are recited (or chanted) preceding the Magnificat during Vespers of the Liturgy of the Hours. They cover the special period of Advent preparation known as the Octave before Christmas, Dec. 17-23, with Dec. 24 being Christmas Eve and Vespers for that evening being for the Christmas Vigil. The exact origin of the O Antiphons is not known. Boethius (c. 480-524) made a slight reference to them, thereby suggesting their presence at that time. At the Benedictine abbey of Fleury (now Saint-Benoit-sur-Loire), these antiphons...
  • Does Mayor Emanuel Know Where Chicago’s Airports Got Their Names?

    CBS ^ | 3-26-15 | Bernie Tofoya
    Mayor Rahm Emanuel appeared to suggest renaming one of Chicago’s airports after President Barack Obama on Thursday, but also sounded confused about how the O’Hare and Midway got their current names. During a mayoral forum at Chicago State University, the mayor seemed a bit flustered as he answered a question about his quick about-face after he suggested naming a Chicago high school for President Barack Obama, and renaming Stony Island Avenue for the late civic leader Rev. Arthur Brazier. That’s when the mayor brought up the city’s two airports. “We have to, in some way, whether it’s President Obama or...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio has spoken of conversations with his son, Dante, about the “dangers he may face” from the police. Like so many other assertions connected with the cases of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, it is a fiction — and a dangerous one. Truth is, a young man of Dante de Blasio’s age faces far more danger from violent men his age than he does from cops. Zach Emanuel found this out the hard way. Zach’s father is Rahm Emanuel, mayor of Chicago. Like Dante, he’s 17. Last Friday, he was assaulted and mugged just a block from...

    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,...
  • Obama’s state of the unions address

    Tonight President Obama is going to give the State of the Unions address. President Obama has never been one to pay attention to the law or details. When recently giving a speech quoting the Declaration of Independence he left out the word “creator” as part of the quote. Presumably, what he wanted to do is expunge any reference to god even though that was an integral part of the meaning of the Declaration. ( See video). It comes as no surprise that the time honored State of the Union address given by the president is now resembling more a State...
  • VANITY -- Emmanuel spends money advertising on Palin Site --VANITY

    01/04/2011 10:07:29 AM PST · by Dr. Sivana · 3 replies ^ | 1/4/2011 | Dr. Sivana
    I was pretty surprised to see that Rahm Emmanuel is throwing oceans of advertising money at the Internet. The targeting could be better. The following is a screenshot from the site: Note the ad at the bottom of the page. 1. I don't live in Chicago;I'm not even in the suburbs. 2. A Palin supporter is unlikely to vote for Emmanuel, even if the supporter DID live in Chicago. I conclude that Emmanuel either, 1. ... is getting poor targeting data for his advertising. OR 2. Has enough money for a Shock and Awe campaign to make his win...

    “O Emmanuel, Come” (Matthew 1:18-25)And now we come to the last of the seven O Antiphons, “O Emmanuel.” You see it there in your hymnal, on the page facing the hymn; it’s the one listed for December 23. You’ll find it also in your bulletin. So let’s pray this “Emmanuel” antiphon together: “O Emmanuel, our king and our Lord, the anointed for the nations and their Savior: Come and save us, O Lord our God.” This word “Emmanuel”--it sounds familiar enough, but what does it mean? The word “Emmanuel” with an “E” is just the Latin spelling of the Hebrew...
