  • Bill Clinton, the nobody nobody sent [Sexual Predator Clinton = Persona-Non-Grata]

    Tribune Content Agency ^ | February 15, 2018 | John Kass
    Chicago Democrats have a saying about unwanted help who may want to wet their beaks in the trough of public service: “We don’t want nobody nobody sent.” And former President Bill Clinton is now that nobody. National Democrats hugged him as recently as the 2016 presidential campaign, ... Now they don’t want him anywhere near the 2018 congressional midterm elections. How can you have Bill around while you reach for that weaponized #MeToo movement and rewrite your history? It would be so awkward. Politicians don’t want voters to realize that those who shout the loudest often sip their hypocrisy quietly,...

    The ad marks a sharp public shift to the right in Ives’ campaign. Ives had been gaining attention following a debate with Rauner at the Chicago Tribune last week. And her sharp critiques of the governor were used in a digital ad by Democratic gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker. “Thank you for legislation that lets me use the girls’ bathroom,” says a man in the new ad, dressed in a woman’s red dress. That targeted a House bill Rauner signed into law which allows transgender citizens to change their gender designation without going through gender reassignment or gender confirmation surgery. “Thank...

    CHICAGO, IL—Immediately upon Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s recent declaration of the entire city of Chicago as an official “crime-free zone,” every criminal in the city suddenly and miraculously left the urban area, according to a statement released by the city council. “We declare every part of the city of Chicago a crime-free zone,” Emanuel announced in a Thursday appearance on CBS This Morning. “It is now physically impossible for any crime to be committed in our great city, because we declared it a zone of peace and harmony and criminals have no choice but to abide by our new rule.” Emanuel...

    While this is an update I promised to a loyal reader of IWB, it is also a validation of my theory that there is a depopulation event taking place in Chicago. While the United Nations has designated Chicago its role model city, it fails to recognize the crime taking place in the black community. They gush about how Chicago is a model in sustainability and a leader in the green revolution. However, not one word has been said about blacks slaughtering blacks. Basically a bloody war in the black community is being waged while Rahm Emanuel and the United Nations...

    Land of leaving: Moving companies rank Illinois No. 1 for outbound vans Studies by two major American moving companies rank Illinois as the top “outbound” state of 2017. On Jan. 2, United Van Lines released its 41st annual National Movers Study and Atlas Van Lines released its 2017 Migration Patterns study. United based the study on its customers’ household moves made in 2017, and Atlas studied nearly 73,000 interstate and cross-border relocations of household goods from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 15, 2017. In both studies, Illinois was home to the highest rate of outbound moves in the nation. United’s...

    “We’re cutting off money for schools, cutting off money for police, allowing people to be forced to live in food deserts, closing hospitals, closing access to mental health facilities,” Kennedy told reporters during a news conference that began as a criticism of the city’s efforts to stop gun violence. What choice do people have but to move, to leave, and I think that’s part of a strategic gentrification plan being implemented by the city of Chicago to push people of color out of the city,” he continued. Asked who is behind this alleged plan, Kennedy pointed to Emanuel. “I believe...

    There were 664 homicides in Chicago in 2017 and, for comparison, 37 casualties in the U.S. military in its myriad operations around the globe. That’s according to data from the Chicago Tribune and from the Department of Defense’s press office. The Chicago deaths are for the period Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2017; the military deaths are from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 22, 2017, which is the latest update on casualties by the DoD posted so far. (There may have been a few more military casualties in December.) From the data available, it shows that Chicago suffered 17.9...

    In 2012 a Chicago Summit was held with the heads of state and heads of government of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This was the first time ever that a NATO summit was held in the United States outside of the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. The event was originally scheduled to coincide and be held after the 2012 G8 summit in Chicago as well, but the G8 summit was later rescheduled to be held at Camp David. As far as I know no one was becoming suspicious at that time of the UN and its special relationship with Chicago. I...

    Chicago is said to be the rat capital of America. The city is expected to break last year’s record for the number of rat complaints. “Walking to the subway after work, I looked down and there was a rat walking alongside me,” said a trained journalist not given to exaggeration. “It was gigantic, like a small dog or a fat squirrel. It just walked along without fear.” But don’t worry, Chicago. I’ve got a guy. And I hope Mayor Rahm Emanuel is listening. Jordan Reed, the legendary American rat catcher, is known far and wide in the rat-hunting community for...
  • FLASHBACK: CitiGroup Chose Obama's Cabinet

    11/18/2016 7:12:17 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 9 replies
    In 2008 Michael B. Froman, then Citigroup executive, sends John Podesta a list of cabinet members. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team. Froman’s list proved remarkably prescient. As it proposed, Robert Gates, a Bush holdover, became secretary of Defense; Eric Holder became attorney general; Janet Napolitano, secretary of Homeland Security; Rahm Emanuel, White House chief of staff; Susan Rice, United Nations ambassador; Arne Duncan, secretary of Education; Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services; Peter Orszag,...

    Townhall.com ^ | September 21, 2017 | Larry Elder
    Warning: Graphic LanguageThe pejorative "Uncle Tom" causes more damage than does the word "n-----." The "N-word," when used by a white person as an epithet against a black person, is an insult, designed to convey to the recipient that he or she is a second-class citizen. It is designed to make one feel inferior. But it hasn't worked. My parents, as did the parents of my friends, said no one can make you feel inferior without your permission. Lesson learned. For decades, tests measuring self-esteem show that teenage black boys and girls test higher than do white boys and white...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday assured incoming high schoolers that they need not to worry about President Trump ending the “Dreamers” program, saying Chicago Public Schools are a “Trump-free” sanctuary for young illegal immigrants. “To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and in the city of Chicago: You are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home. And you have nothing to worry about,” Mr. Emanuel told a group of freshman on the first day of classes at Solorio Academy High School, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as...

    Townhall.com ^ | August 14, 2017 | Ken Blackwell
    President Donald Trump issued an executive order to stop subsidizing cities which obstruct immigration law. Chicago filed suit in response. Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to continue collecting federal dollars while ignoring federal policy. Chicago is a “sanctuary city.” That sounds nice, kind of like Oskar Schindler protecting Jews from the Nazis. It actually means protecting illegal aliens who commit crimes from being punished and deported. When President Donald Trump took office, some 300 jurisdictions, including 106 cities, actively interfered with federal law enforcement. The Chicago case arose from a drunk driver and illegal alien. Shortly after completing probation for a...

    US Defense Watch ^ | July 8, 2017 | Joe Ragonese
    The numbers are in: 102 shot, 15 dead over the Fourth of July weekend. Not a new high, just an ongoing flow of chaos and turmoil in what was once one of the greatest cities in America. Chicago’s Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, did not create the chaos, he simply expedited it due to his radical left ideology. Chicago’s decline is the direct result of the power of the Democrat Party in Illinois. Illinois, for all intents and purposes, is a one party state. OK, the Governor is a Republican, but powerless to change anything because the Chicago Democratic Party controls the...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- An FBI agent had his car stolen early Monday on the West Side, a source told ABC7. The theft happened at a gas station near Morgan Street and Jackson Boulevard at about 1 a.m., Chicago police said. Police said a 32-year-old man left his car running at the gas station when a male suspect entered the car and took off. Police have not confirmed that the stolen white Chevy Equinox belonged to an FBI agent. The vehicle was last seen heading east on Van Buren Street. There were several guns in the FBI agent's vehicle when it...

    llinois is like Venezuela now, a fiscally broken state that has lost its will to live, although for the moment, we still have enough toilet paper. But before we run out of the essentials, let's finally admit that after decade upon decade of taxing and spending and borrowing, Illinois has finally run out of other people's money. Those "other people" include taxpayers who've abandoned the state. And now Illinois faces doomsday. So as the politicians meet in Springfield this week for another round of posturing and gesturing and blaming, we need a plan. And here it is:

    Hillary 2020 - "She's full of energy!" It’s a really simple question. “If Hillary Clinton is up for another presidential run, would that be a good thing for your party?” That’s about as easy a “yes or no” softball as you’re likely to see. A first year poli-sci major would know enough to answer “Sure! We’re a big party with a wide array of diverse voices. Debate is always welcome. If she’s up for another run, we’d love to have her in the mix.”

    It's going to take much more money to keep Chicago's schools open through June than previously revealed, top Emanuel budget aide Carole Brown says. The Chicago Public Schools actually need $596 million to keep schools open the rest of the school year, and not just the $129 million officials have publicly discussed, a top aide to Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Tuesday. ... Brown said all options are on the table to find the cash needed to stave off an early closing of schools that CPS CEO Forrest Claypool has warned might be needed but that Emanuel has ruled out to...

    The Windy City has a whole host of issues to deal with these days, many of them centered around the fact that you’re more likely to be murdered there than in Fallujah on any given day. But rather than worrying about pesky little problems like that, the city council has decided to go after the really big ticket items on the agenda. One of these is to begin creating and distributing special municipal ID cards for various “underserved” groups including illegal immigrants. What could possibly go wrong? (CBS News, local) A program to create municipal identification cards passed overwhelmingly,...
