  • Ex-Country Club Hills police chief gets 5 years in prison

    Chicag Sun-Times ^ | 05/01/2014 | Dave McKinney
    SPRINGFIELD — Described by the prosecution as a “scourge” on Chicago, ex-Country Clubs Hills Police Chief Regina Evans was sentenced late Thursday to five years in prison for stealing more than $900,000 in state grant money. Opting against the 10-year, one-month sentence that federal prosecutors sought, U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough nonetheless told Evans that she “broke the law in magnificent fashion with a magnificent fraud.” The heart of the government’s fraud case against Evans centered on her misuse of a $1.25 million state work-training grant that was part of her effort to revive the Regal Theater on the South...

    The Federal Reserve released the minutes of the most recent meeting today. The prognosis? Clear as a muddied lake. As clear as smog-covered sky of a thermal inversion summer. In other words, total confusion. The Federal Reserve of Chicago’s Charles Evan tweeted yesterday his opinion: #CharlesLEvans our purchases will continue to be open ended. We may need to purchase 1.5 trillion in assets until January 2015. Now for the minutes and the possibility of a taper: “During this general discussion of policy strategy and tactics, participants reviewed issues specific to the Committee’s asset purchase program. They generally expected that the...

    The Chicago Fed’s President Charles Evans sent this Tweet today: #CharlesLEvans our purchases will continue to be open ended. We may need to purchase 1.5 trillion in assets until January 2015. Well, that’s not good. Although he is only one person, this seems to be the mindset of soon-to-be-Fed Chair Janet “Bubbles” Yellen. This is a statement about how markets are addicted to the sugar high of easy money and declining expectations of inflation (at least how the Federal government measures it). In other words, lethargic growth is in our economic future. Here is a chart on nominal GDP growth...

    An upstate hair care products company whose returned and obsolete products were deposited in a private landfill that it never owned is potentially liable for a portion of the clean-up costs under an "arranger liability" theory, a Western District judge has held. In a lengthy application of the U.S. Supreme Court's 2009 holding in Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway v. United States, 556 U.S. 599, Chief Judge William Skretny said that even though Zotos International did not dump hazardous materials on a site in Seneca County, it effectively "arranged" for the disposal and, under Burlington Northern, may be liable...

    TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya. As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros. The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied...

    Americans will have a hard time supporting President Obama's war in Libya --because the United States is already fighting two wars, because the president never publicly made the case for involvement, because Congress never authorized the war, and because there are no identifiable American interests.But just as important, for those Americans paying close attention, is the growing realization that the president can't be trusted. His assurances that America's military role in Libya will be limited in scope and duration carry little weight after the lies and evasions of his top aides. Not even a week into our war on Libya,...

Philanthropist billionaire George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the global organization that promotes the military doctrine used by the Obama administration to justify the recent airstrikes targeting the regime of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya. The activist who founded and coined the name of the doctrine, "Responsibility to Protect," sits on several key organizations alongside Soros. Also, the Soros-funded global group that promotes Responsibility to Protect is closely tied to Samantha Power, the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Reserve should do "much more" monetary easing to spur a sluggish economic recovery, a top Fed official said in an interview published on Tuesday. "In the last several months I've stared at our unemployment forecast and come to the conclusion that it's just not coming down nearly as quickly as it should," Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans told the Wall Street Journal. "This is a far grimmer forecast than we ought to have," he said, for which reason he favors "much more accommodation than we've put in place." The U.S. unemployment...

"Although there are some signs of general economic recovery and some evidence of home-price stabilization, we are certainly not out of the woods," Evans said to the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership .

    When challenged on his radical, anti-American associates, Barack Obama responds by saying they are in his past and not a part of his campaign. He's correct on that, and that explains why some give him a pass on his past.However, there is one anti-American he has not thrown under the bus who is very much a part of his campaign--and has been from the very beginning. Obama's alliance with this person makes sense of his past association with Bill Ayers as this person is Ayers' ideological twin.If you are currently in the service, a veteran or military family member, Obama's...

    Barack Obama's real thinking about Israel and the Middle East continues to be an enigma. The words he chose in an address to AIPAC create a different impression than the composition of his foreign policy advisory team. Several advisors have evidenced a history of suspicion and worse toward Israel. One of his advisors in particular, Robert Malley, clearly warrants attention, as does the reasoning that led him to being chosen by Barack Obama. A little family history may be in order to understand the genesis of Robert Malley's views. Normally, one should be reluctant in exploring a person's family background...

David Evans says that C02 emissions play - at most - a minor role.

Thune, South Dakota's three-term congressman, said he will await the outcome of the official statewide vote canvass on Tuesday, Nov. 12, to see whether Johnson's 528-vote lead erodes. "The numbers are in, and we came up a little bit short. I don't anticipate a change," Thune said when he addressed reporters early Wednesday afternoon. "We'll wait and see." State law allows for...

    Cindy Sheehan, Tom Hayden, and the Hate America Left meet with pro-Ba'athist members of the Iraqi parliament to discuss “peace.” TO FIND PEOPLE WHO HATE AMERICA AS MUCH AS THEY DO, the Fifth Column Left had to go halfway around the world to meet with Iraqi political leaders who call terrorism “honorable national resistance” and say foreign jihadists “are guaranteed Paradise” – and at least one of whom has ties to militia leader Muqtada al-Sadr. By the end of the trip, the American leftists would echo these sentiments. Somehow most of the media – occupied with interminable coverage of Hurricane...

    A few months ago, former Duke University lacrosse captain David Evans was facing rape charges. He was shunned and taunted for his alleged role in a crime that North Carolina’s attorney general has declared never happened. Now Evans has gained the trust of Morgan Stanley Chief Executive John Mack, a Duke alum and trustee (class of ‘68) who went to bat for Evans after serious questions were raised about the case against he and his two former teammates. Evans now has landed one of the most prestigious jobs on Wall Street, Deal Journal has learned. Morgan Stanley has hired Evans,...

    Tom DeLay, the House Majority Leader who was forced to resign earlier this year, has decided to pitch in his two cents about one of America's tightest races. No, not a political race. We're talking about the new season of "Dancing With the Stars." DeLay, a former Republican congressman from Texas, sent out a letter to his supporters urging them to watch -- and vote for -- country singer Sara Evans in the third season of the popular ABC show. "Sara Evans has been a strong supporter of the Republican Party and represents good American values in the media,"...

    A man is accused of rape. Even if he is innocent, his reputation is forever smeared. Bettina Arndt examines whether either party should be named in sexual assault cases. There is a businessman in Toowoomba who's had a very lucky escape. He's just suffered the horror of being accused of rape but at the end of his trial last month he was acquitted by the jury. The alleged victim in 1998 reported the man to her church and five years later to the police, claiming he'd had sex with her 17 years earlier, when she was 14. But his real...

    DURHAM -- One of two Duke lacrosse-playing tenants of 610 N. Buchanan Blvd. was found not guilty Tuesday of violating a noise ordinance during a January house party that took place two months before the alleged rape there that has dominated headlines since. Daniel Flannery, who is not listed as a suspect in the rape case, was found not guilty by Judge David LaBarre on Tuesday but Dave Evans, who on Monday became the third player indicted in the rape case, remains scheduled to be tried on the same noise violation next week. Evans is being targeted, one of his...

    GALESBURG - Some of the Republican Party's heaviest hitters are now lending cash and clout to the campaign of 17th District congressional candidate Andrea Zinga. Zinga, along with U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood, R-Peoria, made stops Monday in the Quad Cities, Galesburg and Peoria to announce she has the party's full backing. "Between now and Election Day, you're going to see this race get a lot of attention nationally," LaHood said in Galesburg. Zinga, 56, of Coal Valley won the March primary election, edging out Jim Mowen of Rock Island. Brian Gilliland of Aledo finished a distant third. In November, she...

    Illinois Democratic Rep. Lane Evans announced yesterday that he will retire at the end of this year, after having served 12 terms in the House. Evans cited his ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease, diagnosed in 1995, as the reason for his decision. The announcement sets up a potentially competitive race for his eastern Illinois district, a traditionally Democratic area that has trended slightly more Republican in recent years. It also opens the senior Democratic position on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee for the first time since 1995. Evans, 54, has been staying at his Washington-area home for the past month after...

    Illinois Democratic Rep. Lane Evans said Tuesday that he will retire at the end of his current 12th House term, attributing his decision to the Parkinson’s disease he has been battling for more than a decade. Though Evans has long been physically slowed by the ailment, which impairs nerve cells in the brain, his decision to terminate his re-election bid was a surprise — if only because of the timing. In the Illinois primary just one week earlier, Evans won renomination in the western 17th District without opposition. Evans’ re-election campaign held a fundraiser just last Saturday, though Evans was...

    Jerrold Nadler's Two Faces on Terror By Jacob LaksinFrontPageMagazine.com | June 13, 2005Last Friday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Patriot Act had already been adjourned, but Jerrold Nadler, the Democratic blimpish congressman from New York and one of the leftmost members of the House Judiciary Committee, was too wound up to care: “We are not besmirching the honor of the United States, we are trying to uphold it,” bellowed the hefty Nadler. By this, Nadler meant to defend his attacks on the alleged abuses of the (in fact) privileged  prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Thanks to the efforts of the...
