  • A Farewell to Carson's, and the Assignment of Blame

    Illinois Review ^ | April 20, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    For over a century, Chicagoans grew up with a signature memory: special days downtown, shopping at Marshall Field’s and Carson’s, the great rival retail giants down the block from each other on State Street. (shown here: Carson's longtime downtown landmark by Louis Sullivan, sold off years ago). Smaller stores came and went, but Field’s and Carson’s were the giants, the dominant figures in Midwestern retail for generations. Macy’s bought out the struggling Field’s chain over a decade ago and cremated the brand name while keeping the stores. Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. wasn’t so lucky; its current holding company, Bon-Ton,...

    Unsatisfied with the lack of results from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's year-long investigation of Trump-Russia collusion to steal the 2016 presidential election from Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee filed a lawsuit demanding billions of dollars in damages and a "rectification" of the election results. In addition to Trump, the suit also named Russia and Wikileaks as co-conspirators in what DNC Chairman Tom Perez called "an act of unimaginable treachery." While not part of the suit, per se, Perez expressed "our profound disappointment with the actions of our government. We counted on them to prevent the election of Trump as...

    “War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.” – Cormac McCarthy It doesn’t take a biologist to see that mother nature has cruel and violent tendencies. Consider some of the fiercest competitors in the animal kingdom, such as apes, crocodiles, bears, snakes, hippos and many others. These creatures’ natural instincts are to resort to violence when it comes to the pursuit of power, territory and resources. Humans are playing the same game but on a much higher level. In the early days of human evolution, humans were not far ahead...
  • Democrats Sue Trump Campaign, Russia, And Wikileaks – They Cannot Take The Blame For What THEY DID!

    I am very frustrated to report all the Democrats have to do with their time and energy is to sue the Trump Campaign, Russia, and Wikileaks. First of all, are they not afraid what will come out about the DNC? Sure their party was destroyed by Trump, Russia, and Wikileaks- they had nothing to do with it – the Awans were not hired by the DNC in the IT Department, and they did not send intelligence to Pakistan – no, that did not happen – think again, it did! The Democrats came apart from within – they destroyed themselves. Ask...

    On April 14, 2018, the cream of the crop in law-abiding American citizens rallied together in state capitals across this Country. Honorable in their endeavor to protect the United State Constitution, Patriots shook hands and spoke out. There was not one incident that occurred in any of the 50 rallies that disturbed the peace, and that is why I call them “the cream of the crop in law-abiding citizens.” Democrats are working together to mow down the Right To Bear Arms, which is given in the Second Amendment of the Constitution. Every human being has the right to protect themselves,...

    The Daily Signal-Commentary ^ | April 19, 2018 | Jason Snead
    Despite the lack of media coverage, evidence of election fraud continues to mount. This week, The Heritage Foundation added 26 new entries to its election fraud database, bringing the searchable ledger to a total of 1,132 proven instances of election fraud. That includes 983 cases that ended in a criminal conviction, 48 that led to civil penalties, 79 where defendants were enrolled in a diversion program, and 22 cases of official or judicial findings of fraud. Americans should be alarmed. These entries represent irrefutable evidence that fraud has impacted elections in 47 states, and across all levels of government. Worse...

    The Comey Memos may be read below: Overall, the documents are no big deal as far as I am concerned – just the official bantering of paranoid and boring James Comey. Of course, the Democrats will do what they can do to find something to help impeach Trump, since that is their goal. However, I don’t see it happening. “Trump asks Comey for “loyalty,” which the FBI director declined to pledge. Trump clears the Oval Office to talk with Comey about Flynn and ask him to “let this go.”

    Parents, pastors, politicians and educators will join a Muslim imam at a mosque Friday in Oakland County, Michigan, to pray and discuss how to make their schools and community safer in an era of mass school shootings. The Muslim Unity Center, a mosque in the wealthy Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills, is hosting an "Interfaith Prayers and Symbolic Walkout Vigil" April 20 that feeds off of the anti-gun fervor created in the wake of the Parkland High School mass shooting that killed 17 students in February.

    Peter Hitchens has weighed in with some reflections on the Syrian situation following the alleged 'chemical attack' and the limited military action that followed it. "The following story appeared in the Mail on 15th April: 'A FORMER head of Britain's Special Forces has challenged Theresa May's claim that President Assad was behind the chemical attack in Douma. 'Major General Jonathan Shaw said: "Why would Assad use chemical weapons at this time? He's won the war. That's not just my opinion, it is shared by senior commanders in the US military. There is no rationale behind Assad's involvement whatsoever." Hitchens also...

    According to multiple reports on Thursday, it looks like the swamp is finally getting drained, or at least partially. More precisely, we’ve just learned that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been referred by the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General to the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia for criminal prosecution. Andrew McCabe was fired by AG Jeff Sessions just a couple of days before his retirement, but now the word on the street is that former FBI deputy director lied to investigators with regard to the leaks to the MSM, as per an...

Organizers of the event say "We're taking a look at the issues which impact Americans from our food, our water to government overreach. Meanwhile his brother Ryan Bundy, who's running as an independent candidate for Governor of Nevada, speaks Friday evening at the "Patch of Heaven" religious camp in Amargosa Valley, Nevada. The US Fish and Wildlife Service diverted a stream away from the private land and is threatening the future of the camp. The...

    US Defense Watch ^ | April 19, 2018 | Ray Starmann
    When General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis was picked by President Trump to serve as Secretary of Defense, the veteran community was largely ecstatic. Finally, someone would sit in the Pentagon’s top seat who was a warrior, and an enemy of the PC monster eating the military alive. While there is no doubt that General Mattis served honorably, there is growing doubt and indeed fear that he will never lift a finger to stop the social engineering that is putting the US military on a collision course to disaster. Therefore, US Defense Watch has comprised a list of questions for General...

    There is something very disturbing occurring in the QAnon community. In his last “drop” he stated: “10 DAYS OR LESS LEFT? GOOD INTELligence on why it is out of our hands now… PRAY ANGELS! GOOD MUST WIN! EVIL MUST BE DEFEATED COMPLETELY … THINK DOOR-TO-DOOR … ACT NOW Q! ACT NOW XI & VLADIMIR! YOU MUST DESTROY THE ENEMY! NO OTHER WAY TO CLEAN EARTH.” What does he mean by “door-to-door?” Trump and Q both have said the Second Amendment would not be repealed. What else could this mean?

    School shooting teams were common before 1970. They suffered enormous decline with the war on guns from 1970 to 2000. Now they are making a comeback. The numbers are growing, and even the Associated Press is noticing. From Dahlonega, Ga. – Their classmates took to the streets to protest gun violence and to implore adults to restrict guns, seeming to forecast a generational shift in attitudes toward the Second Amendment. But at high school and college gun ranges around the country, these teens and young adults gather to practice shooting and talk about the positive influence firearms have...

    So when do we get to put our majority-conservative House and Senate to good use and begin to take our country back? When is it our turn? The slime has oozed above the gunwales. Our president, vice president, their wives and their every conservative supporter - from our truly conservative representatives/senators to conservative voters - have become the brunt of every sort of attack from leftist ‘leadership’, their constituency, and the liberal left media/entertainment industry that empowers them. Obama, Clinton, Comey, Mueller, Rosenstein, by name, have all become trademarks for the unsurpassable height of doubledealing, double-standarded hypocrisy. They have been...

You can read a transcript of the interview here: The skeptic’s satirical translations appear in italics directly after Comey’s remarks. JAMES COMEY: I went to the Attorney General (Loretta Lynch) and said, “You and I are both going to have public events coming in the next–” I think it was a few days later. “Do you think it’s time to do what the Department of Justice policy permits, in...

It’s really not that complicated. But President Trump’s Syria strikes have reopened the debate over what defines his foreign policy. Is he an interventionist or an isolationist?

    The insufferable James Comey met our pal Laura Loomer today, and it was as explosive as one would expect. Comey is out and about pushing his White House fan-fiction novel called “A Higher Loyalty.” Today was the first day of the book tour, and his first stop was New York City, which he did after his appearance on ABC’s “The View.” During the question and answer session, Loomer grilled the disgraced former FBI Director, much to the chagrin of the Comey cult. “Hey Mr. Comey, how is it ethical to brief the President of the United States on the unverifiable...
