[Townhall] Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has done little to address the violence in his city, his critics say. That's why the organizers of an upcoming non-violence rally want him to have nothing to do with it. In fact, the demonstrators are planning to call for Emanuel and police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to step down. One of the leading organizers, Rev. Gregory Livingston, even compared Johnson to infamous figures like Gov. George Wallace, the former Alabama governor who spewed racism, promoted segregation and resisted civil rights.
Emanuel has been condemned for his inaction as Chicago experiences more shootings and homicides. This past weekend, 42 people were shot, 5 of whom were killed. Almost 300 people have been killed in the city this year. The Chicago Tribune offered some possible causes for the bloodshed, including increased gang warfare, access to guns, police morale, and poverty.

[Daily Caller] Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is now getting involved in the 2018 midterms, putting money into races across the country.
Clinton reportedly made the maximum donation of $5,000 to 19 different Democratic candidates running in 2018. She made the donations through the group "Onward Together."
Hillary has repeatedly attacked President Trump since losing the election. (RELATED: NEW BOOK: Hillary Clinton Went On ’F**k-Laced’ Tirade Against Trump During 2016 Debate Prep)
In an appearance in March, she speculated that people voted for Trump because they "didn’t like black people getting rights."
"So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign ‐ ’Make America Great Again’ ‐ was looking backwards. ’You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs, you don’t want to, you know, see that Indian-Americans are succeeding more than you are ‐ whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it,'" she said.
[DAILYCALLER] Facebook announced Tuesday that it has removed 32 inauthentic Instagram and Facebook profiles and pages because the company believes they were part of a coordinated disinformation campaign.
"We’re still in the very early stages of our investigation and don’t have all the facts ‐ including who may be behind this. But we are sharing what we know today given the connection between these bad actors and protests that are planned in Washington next week. We will update this post with more details when we have them, or if the facts we have change," the company said in a statement.
Many of the named pages and accounts seem to espouse progressive or left-wing political messages. One page, "Resisters," went as far as creating an event scheduled between August 10 and 12 called "No Unite the Right 2 ‐ DC."
About 2,600 Facebook users expressed interest in the event and more than 600 said they were attending, according to the company.
"Inauthentic admins of the ’Resisters’ Page connected with admins from five legitimate Pages to co-host the event. These legitimate Pages unwittingly helped build interest in ’No Unite Right 2 ‐ DC’ and posted information about transportation, materials, and locations so people could get to the protests," Facebook said.
The page linking to information to the event has been taken down and Facebook said it would continue sharing information with law enforcement and Congress.
Unlike previous incidents, Facebook did not seem confident it would be able to identify who was behind the campaign.
Over 290,000 accounts followed "at least one of these" fake pages, which had names like "Aztlan Warriors," a pro-Latin American page, "Black Elevation," a Black pride page and "Mindful Being."
Some images posted from "Resisters" included memes calling on President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... to resign from office while others posted images with feminist slogans. According to The New York Times
...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize... , "coordinated activity was also detected around #AbolishIce, a left-wing campaign on social media that seeks to end the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency."
The pages in question were responsible for creating around 30 events since May 2017, with one event having "approximately 4,700 accounts interested in attending, and 1,400 users [saying] that they would attend."
The left-leaning nature of this new round of fraudulent accounts throws a curveball into the narrative that outside governments or groups favor one political party over the others.
I remember in the 60s and early 70s there was this rabid anti-white black liberation book only sold by mail order in the classifieds of certain magazines.
In the 80s it came out that it was actually a publication of the KKK and they just wanted potential mailing addresses of violence prone blacks if there ever was a race war.
So my point is that origins of facebook pages like this could get very murky.
