Chicago does not have a GUN problem.
It has a problem with who has the Guns ----> The THUGS.
Because the Liberal/Socialist City politicians have made it near
impossible for HONEST CITIZENS to have a firearm for self-protection.
[American Thinker] Julie Kelly at American Greatness has been doing yeoman work exposing the crimes of the D.C. leftists who have targeted, arrested, and imprisoned hundreds of people who attended President Trump's speech and may have wandered toward or even into the Capitol on January 6. While there were some bad actors there that day, most likely Antifa/BLM interlopers or genuine lunatics, most of those present were actually invited into the Capitol building, as some of the video has shown.
Who ordered the Capitol police to stand down? Probably Pelosi, who very much wanted an "incident" with which to tar and feather Trump and his supporters. It was possibly a calculated set-up. Who else was involved remains to be seen, but as everyone knows by now, that event has been blown so far out of proportion as to no longer resemble at all what actually took place.
Unlike the Antifa/BLM riots that occurred across the country over the summer of 2020, the incident that day was like a schoolyard scuffle compared to the violent, destructive, and even murderous conflagrations that did hundreds of millions of dollars in damage to numerous cities. People need to be reminded that the left, most especially Kamala Harris, Biden, and the leftmedia in its entirety, either supported those "protests" or called them "mostly peaceful" — which they certainly were not.
As for those caught up in the January 6 mêlée, not one of those who have been locked up, some in solitary confinement was armed. Not one. The only person killed was Ashli Babbitt, shot to death by a Capitol Police officer. She was not armed. The officer who shot her has yet to be named; Babbitt's family is suing to learn his identity. Curious, since when a criminal is killed by police in the commission of a crime, the officer involved is usually identified and suspended immediately, even if the shooting was righteous. Something is very rotten in Denmark.
Tucker Carlson has addressed this ongoing crime. On Sunday night, Mark Levin's always spectacular program, Life, Liberty & Levin, addressed this untenable situation with Julie Kelly. To listen to them discuss the facts is to realize that, as Dorothy of The Wizard of Oz remarked, "I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."
The overlords in Washington NO LONGER FEAR that the conservative/informed part of the country has the will or the courage to confront DC again physically, or to defeat the rigged elections that now let them COUNT the votes. A 10 million person march on Washington, not to enter the city, but congest every major highway into and our of the metro-plex, that would wake them up. But noise and vain attempts to use the "system", not so much! That ship had sailed!
A 10 million person march on Washington, not to enter the city, but congest every major highway into and our of the metro-plex, that would wake them up. A trucker's blockade would need fewer people.

[New York Post] The maniac allegedly responsible for the brutal rape of a Queens woman last year has been arrested — after authorities found him hiding out in Georgia, prosecutors announced Monday.
Rony Lopez Alvarez, 38, was dragged back to New York on Friday to face a slew of charges including rape and kidnapping in the horrifying January 2020 assault. Oh to wish he was actually dragged back
"For more than a year, the investigation into this brutal attack continued and intensified in an effort to find justice for the victim," said Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
[AP] Pulling a pistol from his waistband, the young man spun his human shield toward police.
"Don’t do it!" a pursuing officer pleaded. The young man complied, releasing the bystander and tossing the gun, which skittered across the city street and then into the hands of police.
They soon learned that the 9mm Beretta had a rap sheet. Bullet casings linked it to four shootings, all of them in Albany, New York.
And there was something else. The pistol was U.S. Army property, a weapon intended for use against America’s enemies, not on its streets.
The Army couldn’t say how its Beretta M9 got to New York’s capital. Until the June 2018 police foot chase, the Army didn’t even realize someone had stolen the gun. Inventory records checked by investigators said the M9 was 600 miles away -- safe inside Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
"It’s incredibly alarming," said Albany County District Attorney David Soares. "It raises the other question as to what else is seeping into a community that could pose a clear and present danger."
2 Army paratroopers found dead at Fort Bragg in reported drug-related incident
Welcome to the 70s - racism, drugs, crimes, AWOL, etc. You broke your Army with endless wars and now you're removing the one unity that held it together. Little things like arms accountability you can't be bothered with before political indoctrination.
B___k street gangs (Bloods, Crips, Vice Lords) have been sending members into the Army for at least 2 decades. There are photos of soldiers holding pistols sideways in the classic O.G. stance. why this wasn't dealt with earlier, I'll never know.
[Fox News] As American educational institutions continue to be called into question, a North Korean defector fears the United States' future "is as bleak as North Korea" after she attended one of the country's most prestigious universities.
Yeonmi Park has experienced plenty of struggle and hardship, but she does not call herself a victim.
One of several hundred North Korean defectors settled in the United States, Park, 27, transferred to Columbia University from a South Korean university in 2016 and was deeply disturbed by what she found.
"I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think," Park said in an interview with Fox News. "I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying."
Those similarities include anti-Western sentiment, collective guilt and suffocating political correctness.
Yeonmi saw red flags immediately upon arriving at the school.

Whether she knows it or not, she has become a marked woman. An appropriate next step for her would be to learn to use a firearm to defend herself against a "progressive American bastard".

[PJMedia] On Monday, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon announced that The New York Times had agreed to drop its arguably defamatory attack on the Babylon Bee after the Bee sent multiple demand letters threatening a defamation lawsuit. Under the guise of reporting, the Times claimed that the Bee "frequently trafficked in misinformation under the guise of satire." While the Times originally agreed to weaken the attack somewhat, its updated story still suggested that the Bee is one of the "far-right misinformation sites that used ’satire’ claims to protect their presence on [Facebook]."
Yet the Times finally agreed to drop the attacks altogether on Friday.
"Big update here. The [New York Times] has responded to our demand letter by removing defamatory statements about us from their article. Here’s their email to our counsel notifying us of the correction," Dillon announced on Twitter Monday.
OK triple checked to see IF I was making another withdrawn from my already opened Feed the Rant-Kitty Bank. BUT there are dozens of MSM's carrying the article. So either Fred and Trailing Wife figured out how to plant fake news, or its legit.
OK, with that said given the revisionist reporting the NYT is well known for, removing or rewriting fake, misleading news articles is just normal article updating for them.
Question: Was NYT caving due to the obvious truth or driven more by declining revenue. Which means losing another slander suit, which would cost them double digit Millions and was unaffordable due to their bottom line.
Note: Avoiding the usual Google search burying techniques uncovers this: NY Times Ad Revenue Fell 26% Last Year, while Subscriptions Topped 7.5 Million. The New York Times' advertising revenue continued to drop in the fourth quarter of 2020, though the paper ended the year with 7.5 million subscriptions, according to the company's Q4 earnings report.Feb 4, 2021
Question: So somehow PAID readership is up, but Businesses are fleeing? So is the NYT using some type of misleading tactic like USA-2-Today has been using with its newly acquired collection of local papers to boost circulation appearances? Like Selling 6 month E-Subscriptions for $1.
Question:Say the numbers are true. Then why are businesses avoiding this subscription rich advertising cow?
Paid readership? That's not how its calculated. They get credit for copies dumped at hotels, dormitories, and the like in the accounting process. It's like ballots in the 2020 election. They all have been gaming the process for decades cause ads are the revenue for sustaining their operation. Craiglist et al gutted their revenue for personal ads. Mandatory legal requirements to post notices keeps that section alive today. In the 'old' days, obits were free, today only those 'famous' enough to be of note get that. The rest often have to pay for their love one's obits.
same way the cable networks game the system. No one willingly watches CNN, but they have negotiated with airports to be played relentlessly. And no one would willingly pay for CNN, but you get to when you buy a cable 'bundle' of channels
I'll buy that this was a "positive event". But to declare this a "Major Victory" is just another example of why the wrong side is winning the culture war.
The left/totalitarian side of the battle rapes and pillages our institutions, traditions, and cultures with near impunity. They just successfully *stole* the election for the highest office in the land. THAT, my friends, is a "Major Victory".
THIS...? This is a "retraction" that will largely ignored.
If we want to get serious about the battle we're in, we'd better start setting the bar for "Major Victory" a little higher.
Several fire departments are tackling a huge blaze at a chemical plant in Rockton, Illinois. People living within a one-mile radius of the site are being evacuated from the area, the local fire chief said.
The fire was reported at around 7 am local time (8 am ET) on Monday at Chemtool Incorporated in Rockton, according to local media. There have been no reports of fatalities.
Rockton Fire Chief Kirk Wilson said 70 plant employees were evacuated from the building prior to the arrival of fire crews. One firefighter, who sustained minor injuries and walked to an ambulance, was the only injury reported, he told a press conference.
Wilson also said there is “no danger” to air quality at ground level, explaining that the evacuation zone was a “precautionary measure.”
He said the plan now is to let the oil-based lubricants at the plant burn off over the next few days. Firefighters have stopped using water on the fire to prevent runoff into local waterways to avoid an “environmental nightmare,” he added.
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] Jeffery Onan the Conqueror Toobin ... legal analyst who was canned for jerkin' his gherkin at a Zoom call, then rehired when they couldn't find somebody as disreputable to replace him... , the CNN ...the organization formerly known as the Cable News Network. Now who knows what it might stand for... employee who was literally caught with his pants down masturbating on a Zoom conference call in Oct. 2020, is returning to the network after an eight-month absence.
His CNN colleague Ana Navarro, however, defended Toobin's return on The View, saying that she's "not surprised" he's back on the air. "Squealing rapacious swamp sow"
The Toobin incident got him fired from his position at The New Yorker at the time, and he took what apparently has worked out to be an eight-month hiatus from the CNN network, but he has now been back for a week, working as their chief legal analyst.
When asked about her views on the Toobin incident, Navarro commented:
"Actually, I’m not surprised he’s back on the air. But I will tell you when I saw that interview — oh, God, how embarrassing, how humiliating."
"I kept thinking to myself, 'If I have to go on live TV and explain to the nation why I masturbated on a Zoom call, I think I’d rather go sell avocados under I-95 than get my job back on TV.'"
[NYP] The husband of slain Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt is demanding the feds identify the Capitol officer who fatally shot her during the Jan. 6 siege — because the ongoing "silence is deafening."
"Somebody up in DC knows, I think a lot of people know, but nobody is telling us," Aaron Babbitt told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Monday night.
The widower is suing to get the officer’s name, saying that it "never occurred" to him that a government employee would be allowed to shoot someone dead and still remain anonymous.
"I never expected to lose my wife to political violence," he told Carlson, saying it also "sickens me to hear what people say about Ashley" on social media.
"There has never been a person Ashli ran across in her daily life that didn’t love her," he insisted, blaming "social media craziness that people just run with a theory and just take off with it."
Babbitt’s attorney, Terrell Roberts, said it was his "belief" that the officer could be one who previously made headlines for leaving his loaded gun in a public restroom inside the Capitol in February 2019. He offered no reason, however, beyond Carlson noting rumors on social media.
[NYPOST] Saying, "I’m surprised we have not yet been accused of provoking the Black Lives Matter movement," Russian President Vladimir Putin ...President-for-Life of Russia. He gets along well with other presidents for life. He is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law, which occasionally results in somebody dropping dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substance. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to him. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile or dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substances... brushed off serious accusations made by the US against Russia, including election interference, cybercrime and the detention and attempted liquidation of dissident Alexei Navalny.
Ahead of his summit Wednesday with President Joe Biden ...... 46th president of the U.S. Former Senator-for-Life from Delaware, an example of the kind of top-notch Washington intellect to be found in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body....... in Geneva, the Russian leader told NBC News that American allegations that Russian hackers or the Kremlin itself were behind cyberattacks in the US were "farcical."
"We have been accused of all kinds of things," Putin told the network. "Election interference, cyberattacks and so on and so forth. And not once, not once, not one time, did they bother to produce any kind of evidence or proof. Just unfounded accusations."
He added: "I’m surprised that we have not yet been accused of provoking the Black Lives Matter movement."
[Breitbart] The prices of gasoline and crude oil both moved higher on Monday, squeezing U.S. consumers in the grip of the strongest inflation in over a decade.
A barrel of Brent Crude rose to $72.88, the highest price since October of 2018. West Texas crude was trading around $70.90, also the highest since October of 2018.
Crude prices have been persistently climbing this year as global demand rises and U.S. investment in oil production is stymied by the Biden administration’s anti-fossil fuel policies.
Gas pump prices hit $3.08 on Monday, three cents higher than a week ago.
"Motorists are paying, on average, 37 percent more to fill up than the start of the year," said Jeanette McGee, a spokesperson for AAA. "Prices for the rest of the month are likely to push more expensive, but if crude production increases, as forecasted, there is the possibility of seeing some relief at the pump later this summer."
Not everyone agrees that prices are likely to come down. Analysts say that the push for electric vehicles and the threat of higher taxes and more regulation are depressing investment in oil production. Commodities investor Leigh Goehring recently told the Wall Street Journal that consumption will top production capacity for a sustained period. The situation could produce "the next oil crisis," Goehring said.
Planned investment in oil supply globally falls nearly $600 billion short of what will be needed to meet projected demand by 2030, according to an analysts at J.P. Morgan Chase.
[IsraelTimes] Ron DeSantis also signs bill allowing volunteer ambulances, like private Orthodox Jewish rescue services, to use emergency lights and sirens when responding to emergencies.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis visited a South Florida Jewish temple to denounce antisemitism and stand with Israel, as the Republican governor cloaked himself in religion Monday while signing a bill into law that would require public schools in his state to set aside at least one minute of silence for children to meditate or pray.
His visit to the Shul of Bal Harbour, a Jewish community center in Surfside, Florida, had the air of a campaign event.
DeSantis seemed to blush when Rabbi Sholom Lipskar introduced him as a "great governor and future world leader." It has been speculated that the governor, who is running for reelection next year, might run for president in 2024.
DeSantis visited the temple to sign two bills into law. One would expand the role of volunteer ambulance services, while the other makes Florida one of at least 15 states, a legislative analysis said, that would compel schools to hold moments of silence at public schools. The state had already been among roughly 18 other states that gave schools the option to do so.
"It’s something that’s important to be able to provide each student the ability, every day, to be able to reflect and to be able to pray as they see fit," DeSantis said. "The idea that you can just push God out of every institution, and be successful — I’m sorry, our founding fathers did not believe that."
The ambulance bill allows some volunteer first responders, including those run by faith-based groups, to use emergency lights and sirens when responding to emergencies. Some Orthodox Jews rely on these volunteer ambulance services to help overcome religious sensitivities that prevent some people from using traditional emergency services.
The ambulance bill was championed in the state Senate by Democrat Jason Pizzo, the only elected Democrat to take the stage with the governor during the bill signings.
Pizzo also supported the legislation that requires moments of silence in schools, saying the students won’t be required to pray during those moments set aside by schools.
"It’s like a moment of meditation, relaxation, connection," he said.
DeSantis used the event to tout his support for Israel, which he visited in his first year of office. During his speech, he referred to the United Nations ...a formerly good idea gone bad... as corrupt, saying the world body does more to sanction Israel than castigate China, which he lumped with what he referred to as "rogue regimes."
As DeSantis began speaking, authorities forcibly removed a heckler from the hall. It was unclear what message the man was making as police pulled him away, most of his words inaudible to those watching a broadcast of the rally.
[WAPO] - ... Vaccination is not always even within each state, and The Post found the connection between vaccine shots and coronavirus cases at the local level comparing more than 100 counties with low vaccination rates (fewer than 20 percent of residents vaccinated) and more than 700 with high vaccination rates (at least 40 percent vaccinated).
Counties with high vaccination had low coronavirus rates that are going down. In counties where few people are vaccinated, not only are there higher case rates, but the number of cases there also is growing. Graph at the link
