  • Al Sharpton says Rahm Emanuel must go as mayor of Chicago

    The Reverend Al Sharpton called for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to step down because of his poor management of race and policing in his city since the release last month of a video showing a white Chicago police officer firing 16 shots into a black teenager and subsequent officer violence. Mr. Emanuel is vacationing in Cuba, while demonstrators are circulating petitions for his resignation, and protesters blocked traffic on the city’s famed shopping district on Michigan Avenue on Christmas Eve chanting “Rahms got to go in 2016!” “You talk about a crisis on steroids,” Mr. Sharpton said Monday on MSNBC’s...

    In tandem with a new report on gun crime in Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proposed to track gun sales throughout the region and clamp down on gun retailers. Emanuel’s proposal limits buyers to one handgun purchase per month, and demands that gun sales be videotaped. The proposal is a response to a federal judge’s ruling in January that found the city’s total ban on gun shops to be unconstitutional.

    Mick Dumke Congressman Bobby Rush convened a roomful of heavy hitters who promised to bring "hope and healing" to scarred neighborhoods. The reporters were told to wait outside the meeting room. The suggestion was that something big was happening in there. We were in the south-side office of Congressman Bobby Rush. He'd sent out word that he was convening a large group of elected officials, business leaders, and clergy to discuss what can be done about the daily casualty counts in Chicago. Rush's office is on a busy stretch of 79th Street in Chatham, just a couple doors down from...

  • "Dear Thug ... Please Be Law Abiding" ... Report: Chicago To Fight Gun Violence With Letters

    Report: Chicago To Fight Gun Violence With Letters Chicago police are going to hand deliver letters to people suspected of committing or being victims of gun crimes in an effort to stem violence in the city, according to a new report. Starting Friday, a district commander will be delivering letters warning certain targets in that district not to commit violent crimes, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The pilot program is targeting individuals off a “heat list” developed by a Yale professor, who studied murders on Chicago’s West Side between 2005 and 2010 and found a small network of people was responsible...

    The Chicago Teachers Union voted to end its strike Tuesday, concluding an episode that put President Obama in a bind between siding with a major labor union in his hometown and Rahm Emanuel, his former chief of staff and the current mayor of Chicago. The strike's end means at least 350,000 students who had not been attending Chicago public schools for a week will return to the classroom. The end of the strike came Tuesday afternoon after the Teachers Union's House of Delegates voted to end the dispute and accept a contract offered by the city. Even before the union...

    In the wake of the Chik-Fil-A fiasco, few realize that an anti-gay restaurant is already operating in Chicago, the Salaam Restaurant, backed by Louis Farrakan. Farrakan spoke out recently against Barack Obama's endorsement of gay marriage. If Chik-Fil-A is not welcome in Chicago, Salaam Restaurant shouldn't be either.

    Angry that one promised raise disappeared and that they're being asked to work longer days without what they consider to be an adequate pay increase, Chicago teachers are considering authorizing their first strike in a quarter-century. In a signal of their mounting anger, teachers are voting this week - before a summer of negotiations and a recommendation from an independent fact-finder - on a strike that wouldn't happen until the next school year starts. If they do authorize a strike, teachers in the nation's third-largest school... "This is a reflection of the treatment we as teachers have been subjected to...

    The First Lady reportedly believed that Mr Emmanuel's willingness to cut backroom deals during the battle over health care reform was tainting Barack Obama's image as a new kind of American leader. The Obamas paints a picture of a presidential inner circle divided between Mrs Obama's idealistic belief in what the administration could achieve and the grittier pragmatism of Mr Emmanuel. The book, written by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, claims that the chief of staff refused to allow the president's wife into high-level morning meetings, leading a brooding Mrs Obama to berate other senior advisers by email. She...

    Donald Trump supporters have met an official ballot deadline in Texas, paving the way for the business mogul to become a third-party candidate there, a source close to Trump tells The Blaze. Trump himself acknowledged the filing in a statement. According to an email sent by the source to The Blaze on Sunday night, Trump supporters filed paperwork on Friday to create the “Make America Great Again Party,” giving Trump the opportunity — should he take advantage of it — to be on the primary ballot.

    We already knew that people in the White House were rushing OMB in August 2009 to approve Solyndra’s half-billion-dollar loan so that The One could get his all-important green jobs/stimulus photo op at the plant. Some OMB analysts complained at the time, in fact, that the time pressure might affect the diligence with which the loan was being reviewed. Oh well. What we didn’t know was who in the White House was pressuring them. Over to you, WaPo:

  • Power Brokers’ Ties Complicate the Ballot Process (Emmanuel Election Fix)

    Before Thursday’s dramatic ruling by the Illinois Supreme Court to keep Rahm Emanuel on the mayoral ballot, much of the chatter in local politics centered on one of the court’s seven justices, Anne M. Burke, and the political relationship between her husband and a key opponent of Mr. Emanuel. But she was not the only one in the residency saga with complicated ties. When Chief Justice Thomas L. Kilbride studied the legal briefs in the case, the name of one lawyer involved in the residency dispute should have been familiar: Michael J. Kasper. Mr. Kasper, the election-law specialist for Mr....

    NBC Chicago ^ | 1/25/2011 | Mary Ann Ahern
    The Illinois Supreme Court has granted Rahm Emanuel's stay. Which means he's back on the ballot. Earlier today Emanuel's spokesman Ben Labolt said he had plans to turn to the U.S. Supreme Court if Emanuel doesn't receive a favorable ruling from the state. Emanuel's lawyers filed an emergency appeal with the Illinois Supreme Court, asking to have him re-added to ballots. Today, ballots are being printed without Emanuel's name after an Illinois Appellate Court residency decision on Monday booted him. Some believe Emanuel will look at a First Amendment question for the U.S. court to weigh in if a state...
