No charges have been filed.The victim can be seen on camera crying and with what appears to be tape on his...

One of the 17-year-old boys was shot in the chest and the other teen was shot in the chest and in the head, police said. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where one of the boys was pronounced dead at 3:45 a.m. while...

    The Department of Commerce is set to hand off the final vestiges of American control over the Internet to international authorities in less than two months, officials have confirmed. The department will finalize the transition effective Oct. 1, Assistant Secretary Lawrence Strickling wrote on Tuesday, barring what he called "any significant impediment." The move means the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, which is responsible for interpreting numerical addresses on the Web to a readable language, will move from U.S. control to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a multistakeholder body based in Los Angeles that includes countries such as...

    Judeo-Christian civilization has nothing in common with, and nothing to gain from, Islamic civilization as it now exists. They have been clashing for centuries. Now, Islamic civilization appears to be winning in much of the European Union and, to a lesser degree, in America. Can anything be done to slow and then to halt the spread of fundamentalist Islam? Ayan Hirsi Ali hopes there is and that Muslims will do it. I also hope they will, but am quite dubious that it will happen in the foreseeable future. We need to take other steps promptly.Preliminary disclosureAs I wrote here in 2012, I am...
  • Consumers shutting down as US economy deflates

    The math is pretty simple: A lack of purchasing power for consumers has led to a lack of pricing power for companies. When it comes to the U.S. economy big-picture outlook, the ramifications are more complicated, and not particularly pleasant. Wednesday's producer price index reading, showing a monthly decline of 0.5 percent, demonstrates a larger problem: At a time when policymakers are hoping to generate the kind of inflation that would indicate strong growth, the reality is that deflation is looming as the larger threat. Declining prices often would be treated as a net positive by consumers, but income weakness...

    Gerald Molen, the producer of Dinesh DSouzas documentary film 2016: Obamas America, says he never feared his government before he learned that DSouza is under federal investigation for election fraud. [] Im a little bit taken aback by the whole thing because hes such a great American, Molen said of DSouza on Newmax TVs Steve Malzberg Show. The conservative writer and commentator understands the process in America and how it works, Molen said. [] Asked by Malzberg if he ever felt threatened or had any feelings they should not have been making the film, Molen answered, No. This is America....

    In the spirit of "you can keep your healthcare plan if you want to", Barack Obama categorically denies he and his fellow progressives are using the power of the federal government to illicitly punish their political opponents. The DOJ won't investigate voter fraud allegations in numerous states including Allen Wests shocking loss in Florida Homeland Security won't enforce existing immigration laws that protect our sovereignty (in a post 9/11 world no less), Congress won't punish the IRS for harassing religious and conservative groups, and the State Department won't deter Iran from developing a nuclear arsenal. However, somehow infected...

    To get an idea of what Conan OBriens audience is cheering when it enthusiastically applauds whites soon becoming a minority in America, look to South Africa, a country built by Europeans who immigrated to the region over the course of several centuries, which was coerced into jumping off a cliff into an abyss of political correctness: From legally mandated race-based economic discrimination against whites to the thousands of farm murders targeting Boers across the nation, the problems are only getting worse. Poverty and unrest are spreading quickly as well. The worlds most prominent expert on genocide, President Dr. Gregory Stanton...

    A KPIX news cameraman was punched and robbed during a live broadcast outside an Oakland high school, the latest in a spate of holdups targeting the media, police said Thursday. Reporter Anne Makovec and cameraman Gregg Welk were on the air shortly after noon Wednesday outside Oakland Technical High School near the corner of 42nd Street and Broadway. They were at the school to do a story on the passage of Proposition 30, the tax measure preventing deep cuts to education. As Makovec was finishing her report, police said, five men rushed up and grabbed a $6,000 camera from the...
  • Saw "Obama's America, 2016"

    So, after reading and hearing all about the film '2012, Obama's America', we finally go a chance to see it. It was on Monday at 3:00 PM. There were about 10 people in the theater, (who sees a movie at 3:00 in the afternoon?) so I really don't know what the evening attendence is. Since I listen regularly to talk radio, to hosts like Rush Limbough, Sean Hanity, and Mike Medvid, there wasn't really anything about Obama that was new to me. However, it was all new to my wife since she doesn't listen to talk radio. Eccept for people...

    In what is perhaps any filmmaker's best-dream scenario, President Barack Obama has issued a public response to the movie "2016: Obama's America" through his White House team. Although the film is criticized on the president's website, co-producer Dinesh D'Souza welcomed the opportunity to talk about the movie's success at the box office even without much media attention or an endorsement from Obama. "I welcome Obama's critique of the film. He has probably figured out that he cannot ignore it any longer," said D'Souza in an interview published on Deadline.com. "Obama's response is a characteristic mix of name calling and...

    This past week, 2016: The Movie about President Barack Obama opened in the Chicago area, and I chose to get more of an education about Obama by seeing the movie. After the inundation of canned hype for the movie on conservative talk shows across the Chicago radio dial that sounded more like commercials than honest endorsements of the movie, I was skeptical of what I was going to see. While some talk show hosts sounded like they were genuinely impressed with the documentary and honestly endorsing the film, there were those who were obviously reading a commercial script which was...

    The theater was packed. "2016: Obama's America" was playing at the local Midway theater in Lewes, Delaware. The movie run began the Friday before Labor Day and I rejoiced. No one goes to the movies "downey ocean" on Labor Day weekend. I decided to go on Labor Day proper. Let the tourists stay at the beach, I was going to the movies. The place was packed. Oh there were a few empty seats but believe me, I go to those movies all the time, granddaughter in tow, and usually about the same time, a middle of the day hour, a...

    TAMPA, Fla. -- You could say that the film "2016: Obama's America" is the GOP equivalent of Michael Moore's "Roger and Me." The documentary is based on conservative firebrand Dinesh D'Souza's 2010 book, "The Roots of Obama's Rage." As the film's narrator, D'Souza argues that Barack Obama's philosophy is "anti-colonialist," a legacy passed on from his Kenyan father, who left Obama's family when he was 2 years old. I watched "2016" with the California delegation at the 2012 Republican National Convention on Monday when the confab was delayed because of Hurricane Isaac. And I was surprised to see former U.S....

    When the documentary "2016: Obama's America" was released at fewer than 200 theaters earlier this month, Democrats, liberals and other Obama supporters speedily dismissed it as a right-wing polemic, destined to quickly disappear into the nether land of late-night cable and GOP fundraisers. But the movie, pushed nonstop by conservative talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and others, took off. When it expanded nationwide to 1,091 screens last weekend, it earned $6.5 million, the seventh-highest weekend gross in the nation. Finding a documentary among the top 10 box office moneymakers in any week "is very, very rare,"...

    Love Him/ Hate Him. You Dont Know Him. This powerful caption on the promotional standee for this film makes a very captivating and thought provoking point. Those who love him love their own preconceived idea about him. Those who do not, for the most part, are individuals who depend on their self reliance to shape their future and the future of their children. These individuals not only see the handwriting on the wall in regards to the effect Presidents policies has had on their self reliance on the American domestic front, as well as on a national scale in the...
