Chicago Gun Violence Skyrockets
SOME OF THE TOUGHEST GUN LAWS INT THE USA AND STILL:
WHEN WILL THEY LEARN THAT GUN LAWS DON’T AFFECT CRIMINALS OR GANG BANGERS!!
CHICAGO, IL — Chicago has once again proved that stricter gun laws and gun-free zones don’t mean a thing to criminals.
Over the July 4th weekend, Chicago recorded 14 deaths and 82 others wounded. Several of these shootings involved officers, including one where a 14 year-old boy shot at officers with a revolver. Chicago has a major problem with violence, and the powers that be blame firearms for this violence. They seem to ignore the fact that they also have abject poverty, which is a large contributing factor to violence.
Two of the officer-involved shootings were instigated by minors. One was 14 years old and the other was 16 years old. One of the suspects is a man that was wanted on a murder charge and had been arrested 21 times previously.
According to Emanuel, “Chicago’s violence problem is largely a gun problem.” No, Mayor, it is not largely a gun problem. It is largely a criminal problem. Criminals do not fear you or your law enforcement officials. They know that your liberal judges will take pity on them because of their upbringing and give them light sentences.
Keep on doing what you are doing, Chicago. You are proof that gun control does not work now, and will never work in the future. If you are a law-abiding citizen living in Chicago, leave now, while you are still alive. Move to a part of the country that respects your right to keep and bear arms.
This is the best analogy yet!
Leave it to Maxine to come up with a solution for the mess that U.K./America/Canada/Australia is now in economically.
I bought a bird feeder.. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds
taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.
But then the birds started building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.
< br>Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table ….. everywhere!
Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own
And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch
anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days
the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down
the many nests they had built all over the patio.
Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ……… quiet, serene….
and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.
Now let’s see…… Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care and free
education, and allows anyone born here to be an automatic
Then the illegal’s came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly
our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments
are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen
by an emergency room doctor; Your child’s second grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English.
Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to
‘press one ’ to hear my bank talk to me in English, and
people waving flags other than ”ours” are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.
Just my opinion, but maybe it’s time for the government
to take down the bird feeder.
IS THE US BECOMING A ‘MONARCHY’
REALLY!! BEING RICH AND HAVING THE CLINTON NAME DIDN’T HELP!
COME ON HILLARY HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN HOW TO BE HONEST, THATS RIGHT I FORGOT ABOUT BENGHAZI
Democratic 2016 frontrunner Hillary Clinton denied that the United States was becoming “a monarchy,” claiming that her family’s political power stems from “a sense of commitment” rather than using access to power and money to prevent outsiders from advancing. Answering a question from Germany’s Der Spiegel, Clinton defended her own effort to return her family to power as well as the potential candidacy of presidential brother and son former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., because the American political system is “open to everyone.” Clinton defended dynastic families as public servants not power hungry. “We had two Roosevelts. We had two Adams. It may be that certain families just have a sense of commitment or even a predisposition to want to be in politics,” Clinton told the reporter, and said her 2008 defeat was evidence of the openness of the system. “I don’t think there is any guarantee in American politics. My last name did not help me in the end.” Clinton continues pointing the differences between the American system and a monarchy. “[The American system] is not a monarchy in which I wake up in the morning and abdicate in favor of my son.” But what about a daughter…
OBAMA KILLS TIME AMID BORDER CRISIS
WONDER WHY THE INRUSH OF CHILDREN JUST STARTED THIS SPRING? WHO SPREAD THE WORD THAT THEY WOULDN’T BE SENT BACK!!!
The president seems to have lots of time on his hands these days. He’s been shooting pool, participating in Internet memes and holding a slew of fundraisers. But one thing the president hasn’t found time for this week is visiting the camps that are holding some of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors who have streamed across the U.S. southern border in a bid for permanent residency. Obama has added a stop to his Western junket this week – a roundtable to discuss the border crisis – after a public rebuke from Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry. The administration is calling for nearly $4 billion in increased spending to deal with the tide of migrants, but deficit spending with no effort to address the underlying problem seems destined to fail in a divided Congress. The standard operating procedure for Obama of setting up a partisan fight with Republicans, shifting blame to Congress and acting unilaterally to satisfy his political base seems unlikely to suffice here.
The scene - AP “All through the night, government buses idle near the border wall — a mile or two from the river — awaiting loads of immigrants. The zone is patrolled by no fewer than six local, state and federal law-enforcement agencies, including gunboats crewed by Texas state troopers with night-vision goggles and the Border Patrol’s white and green trucks. Helicopters swoop above the winding waterway. But there’s little cat-and-mouse pursuit. Every day, hundreds of immigrants walk up to agents, wave to their remote cameras or simply wait to be picked up on the side of a road…”
WALMART vs CONGRESS

Report: Mexican Military Chopper Crosses Into US, Shoots At Border Agents
Report: Mexican Military Chopper Crosses Into US, Shoots At Border Agents
June 27, 2014 2:40 PM
TUCSON, Ariz. (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — Border Patrol agents in Arizona were reportedly fired upon by a Mexican military helicopter that traveled across the border.
Mexican authorities were conducting a drug interdiction operation when the incident happened early Thursday morning on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The Mexican chopper fired at the agents and then flew back into Mexico.
However, Mexican authorities have denied shooting at agents and say they were under attack during a mission to find smugglers on the border.
Tomás Zerón, the director of the Mexican attorney general’s office investigative office, said that Mexican military and federal police who were conducting an operation on a ranch in Altar, Sonora, were shot at by criminals. Mexican authorities never fired any weapons and in fact never crossed into the U.S. side of the border, he said.
Art Del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president, tells KVOA-TV, though, that they called and apologized for the incident.
“The incident occurred after midnight and before 6 a.m. Helicopter flew into the U.S. and fired on two U.S. Border Patrol agents,” Del Cueto said in a statement to KVOA. “The incident occurred west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident.”
Del Cueto said four agents were in a marked patrol vehicle when they were shot at.
“They could say they didn’t fire at the agents intentionally. But for them to say that they were no shots fired within the United States, toward the United States Border Patrol, is a lie. They got in contact with our managers and apologized for the incident,” Del Cueto said.
Andy Adame, Border Patrol spokesperson, said that Mexican authorities fired two shots at the border agents.
Hillary Clinton Dogged by 1975 Rape Case
By Liz Kreutz | ABC News Blogs – 19 hours ago
Hillary Clinton’s successful 1975 legal defense of an accused rapist has surfaced again with the victim, angered over a tape of Clinton chuckling over her courtroom tactics in the case, lashing out at the potential Democratic presidential candidate.
"Hillary Clinton took me through hell," the victim told the Daily Beast in an emotional interview published today. The woman said that if she saw Clinton today she would say, “I realize the truth now, the heart of what you’ve done to me. And you are supposed to be for women? You call that [being] for women, what you done to me? And I heard you on tape laughing.”
The name of the woman, who is now 52, was withheld for privacy reasons. She decided to speak out after hearing never-before-heard audio tapes released by the Washington Free Beacon earlier this week of Hillary Clinton talking about the trial. In the recordings, dubbed the “Hillary Tapes,” Clinton is heard laughing as she describes how she succeeded at getting her client a lighter sentence, despite suggesting she knew he was guilty.
"He took a lie-detector test! I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs," Clinton said about her client on the tapes, which were initially recorded, but never used, in the early 1980s.
The rape case has been investigated more than once, but with Clinton considering a presidential run, it is again commanding headlines.
What else has been written about it?
In 2008, during the height of her presidential primary campaign, Newsday published an in-depth story about Clinton’s involvement with the trial. Newsday argued that Clinton’s account in “Living History” left out “a significant aspect of her defense strategy - attempting to impugn the credibility of the victim.” She reportedly sent an affidavit during the trial requesting the girl undergo a psychiatric examination at the university’s clinic, and without offering any source, alleged that the victim had often sought older men. The case, Newsday claimed, “offers a glimpse into the way Clinton deals with crisis. Her approach, then and now, was to immerse herself in even unpleasant tasks with a will to win.”
Government should apologize to Nixon
AFTER HOW OBAMA USED THE IRS THE DEMOCRATS AND THE GOVERNMENT OWE NIXON AN APOLOGY!
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen is on the Hill today for another round of contentious hearings on mounting allegations of misconduct at the agency. Taking center stage: the vanished emails of key figures in the scandal. The agency, accused of harassing conservative groups, claims that emails from individuals who are the focus of congressional investigators are gone and unrecoverable. A dubious claim. As the partisans haggle over “recycled” hard drives and the existence of back-up servers, though, let’s not forget why we care. This isn’t just an ordinary story about an over-powerful government agency run amok. The allegations here are of political corruption in which officials appointed by the party in power allegedly sought to impede and punish those of the opposing view with the intent to alter the outcome of two elections. That’s not just the usual stuff we read about with regulators gone wild – consequences of an obtuse and overbroad bureaucracy that rains misery on citizens just and unjust. This is an allegation of rigging two elections by high officials in an agency with enormous powers to harass and intimidate.
KING HARRY RULES AGAIN.
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a major blow to efforts to get Congress’ troubled budget process back on track, the Senate’s top Democrat yanked a $180 billion spending measure from the Senate floor Thursday after Republicans protested a plan that would have denied them the chance to more easily win changes to the measure.
