Four Shootings In Chicago Since Barry's Visit
Image
You know flies are always landing on Barry?

The stench of death follows this vile incubus wherever he goes


Quote:
Four separate shootings took place in the span of 90 minutes Friday evening in Chicago, the first coming less than an hour after Air Force One departed Oa€?Hare Airport after President Obama spoke on the culture of gun violence and economic decay that plagues many cities, including his hometown.

Four people were wounded on the streets of Chicagoa€?s South and West sides between 5:55 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. Friday, the Chicago Tribune reported. The president was airborne shortly after 5 p.m.

An hour earlier, Obama wrapped up a personal speech at Hyde Park Academy on the South Side, where he mourned the killing of Hadiya Pendleton, the teen who visited Washington for his inauguration just a week before she was gunned down not far from the school. a€?This is not just a gun issue. Ita€?s also an issue of the kinds of communities that wea€?re building, and for that we all share a responsibility as citizens to fix it,a€? he said.

Obama had said little about Chicagoa€?s murder problem a€” there were more than 500 in 2012 a€” before Friday, instead focusing on mass shootings in his post-Newtown gun control push. But at a high school just two miles away from his Chicago home, he acknowledged the depths of devastation that street violence generated in the city.

a€?Last year, there were 443 murders with a firearm in this city, and 65 of them were 18 and under. Thata€?s the equivalent of a Newtown every four months,a€? he said. a€?Thata€?s precisely why the overwhelming majority of Americans are asking for some common sense proposals to make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun.a€?

Obama On Gang Members Shooting Up Chicago: a€?These Guys Are No Different Than Mea€?
Image
Couldna€?t agree more.

Quote:
CHICAGO a€“ President Barack Obama offered a personal reflection on gun violence here Friday, tackling the issue not as a policymaker or parent, but as a black man himself who knew how close hea€?d come to a very different fate.

Obamaa€?s talked frequently about gun violence since the Newtown massacre, but never in these terms. Straying from a speech meant to discuss initiatives from his State of the Union address aimed at supporting poor communities, the president reflected instead on the group of at-risk male teens hea€?d met with just before he took the stage.

a€?I had more of a safety net, but these guys are no different than me,a€? Obama said at Hyde Park Academy, where the teenagers are in school. a€?I had issues too when I was their age. I just had an environment that was a little more forgiving.a€?

Speaking of the economic struggles and broken homes that he identified as the root causes, Obama talked about his own experiences as a young African-American man, causing trouble and, later, trying to affect change on the streets here.

a€?Dona€?t get me wrong, as the son of a single mom a€| I turned out OK a€| but at the same time I wish I had a father who was involved, around,a€? Obama said.

Chicago Gang Members Shoot 6-Month-Old Baby - City Responds By Considering More Gun Control Laws
Image
At what point will they snap out of it and realize all these gun laws are doing nothing to stop the violence? Ia€?m thinking never.

Quote:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - City Council will consider stricter gun laws in Chicago on Wednesday, one day after a 6-month-old baby girl was shot five times while her father changed her diaper a€“ she did not survive.

Jonylah Watkinsa€? father, Jonathan, was changing her in their parked minivan near 65th and Maryland on Monday afternoon. He was also shot multiple times.

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said in a press conference Tuesday that Jonathan Watkins is most likely the intended target. McCarthy acknowledged the father has an extensive criminal history, and a police source said Watkins has more than 30 prior arrests.

Police sources told FOX 32 News that he also has gang ties. They have stepped up presence in Woodlawn, in case of retaliation.

Community leader Pastor Corey Brooks spoke on behalf of the babya€?s mother and family outside the hospital Tuesday, and initially offered a reward of $5,000 for information leading to an arrest. That amount has since gone up to $15,000 thanks to other contributions.

Chicago Teachers Union President Calls Rahm Emanuel A a€?Racista€? For Closing Dozens Of Schools For Budgetary Reasons
Image
I love when the left eats their own.

Quote:
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuela€?s budget decision to close 53 public schools and 61 buildings isna€?t going over so well with city residents and union activists.

Theya€?re calling him the a€?murder mayora€? and a a€?racist,a€? Breitbart reports. From his perspective, hea€?s only trying to help bridge a $1 billion budget gap. But from their perspective: Why are the buildings and schools hea€?s targeted for closure in predominantly minority neighborhoods?

Karen Lewis, the president of Chicagoa€?s Teachers Union, meanwhile, doesna€?t mince words.

Mr. Emanuel is a a€?racist,a€? she said, Breitbart reports. And his new nickname is a€?the murder mayor. Look at the murder rate in this city. Hea€?s murdering schools, hea€?s murdering good jobs. Hea€?s murdering housing. I dona€?t know what else to call him. Hea€?s the murder mayor.a€?

Chicago Bans War Museums From Displaying Historical Guns
Image
It doesna€?t get any more fanatical when it comes to hating guns than Chicago and yet the city is still a war zone.

Quote:
CHICAGO a€” Ald. Edward Burke (14th) introduced an ordinance at Wednesdaya€?s City Council meeting that would allow city museums to display unloaded firearms for historical purposes.

Currently, city museums are prohibited from lawfully displaying firearms of historic value, according to the ordinance.

In a news release, Burke said he learned that museums such as the Pritzker Military Library on Michigan Avenue cannot display a Walther PP firearm donated by a United States Army officer who served in World War II.

a€?Chicago is home to several world-class museums,a€? Burke said in a statement. a€?And it has come to my attention that such an exemption is reasonably warranted to allow such institutions to display unloaded firearms that often accompany uniforms and other historical artifacts.a€?

Burkea€?s ordinance would allow museums to display a€?curios and relicsa€? if the council approves it.

University Of Chicago Removes Pews From 88-Year Old Chapel To Accommodate Islamic Prayers
Image
In other words, they turned the chapel into a mosque.

Quote:
University of Chicago (UC) administrators permanently removed pews from an 88-year old chapel on campus in order to accommodate Islamic prayers, according to a local news report.

Chicago NPR affiliate, WBEZ news, reported on May 23, the pews, which are now part of display at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Chicago, were a€?removed in order to provide Muslim students a place to pray.a€?

Literature describing the artwork that was created by UC Director of Arts and Public Life Theaster Gates, also describes the removal of the pews as symbol of religious tolerance.

a€?The pews were recently removed from the chapel in order to offer Muslim students a place to pray, a symbolic gesture of religious tolerance,a€? according to an official description of the exhibit which includes a a€?set of repurposed pews from the University of Chicagoa€?s campus church.a€?

Gun-Outlawed Chicago Erupts In Gun Violence Over Weekend: 7 Dead, 41 Injured
Image
Of course we already know the left thinks that this is the NRAa€?s fault.

Quote:
Chicago saw its bloodiest weekend this year as gun violence throughout the city left seven dead and 41 injured, including boys younger than 19.

One victim was 16-year-old Kevin Rivera, who was shot to death, as he walked near his home, by a bicycle-riding gunman, United Press International reported.

Another was a 15-year-old who was shot and killed by police during a drug-related emergency call in the South Sidea€?s Englewood neighborhood, the Chicago Tribune reported. Police responded to a drug call about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, saw three suspects running, and launched a foot chase. The suspect turned and pointed what appeared to be a gun at the officer during the course of the chase, the Tribune said. The officer in turn fired his weapon.

The boy was taken to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead an hour later, the Tribune said.

Others killed included Jamal Jones, 19, Ricardo Herrera, 21, McGregory Porter, 24, Cortez Wilberton, 31, and Todd Wood, 40, UPI reported.

Police say this was the worst weekend for gun violence since the beginning of the year, and residents say they are unnerved. NBC put the statistics at seven dead and 41 wounded, up from earlier estimates by different media of six dead and 36 wounded.

Chicago Teachers Union Boss Blames Racist a€?Rich White Peoplea€? For Chicagoa€?s School Woes
Image
CTU President Karen Lewis (who looks like Michael Moore in drag) plays the race card . . . again.

Quote:
CHICAGO (EAGNews) a€“ Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis is full of excuses for why the citya€?s schools are hemorrhaging money, failing to educate students, and laying off teachers by the hundreds.

During her tenure as union head, Lewis has blamed Chicago Public Schoolsa€? problems on Mayor Rahm Emanuel, charter schools, standardized tests, bankers, venture capitalists, a lack of funding and a€?a culture of fear.a€?

During a recent speech to the City Club of Chicago, Lewis focused on her two most inflammatory excuses for CPSa€? failures: a€?racisma€? and a€?rich white people.a€?

a€?When are we going to address the elephant in the room? When will there be an honest conversation about the poverty, racism and inequality that hinders the delivery of a quality education product in our school system?a€? Lewis asked the decidedly upscale audience.

a€?When will we address the fact that rich, white people, think they know whata€?s in the best interest of children of African Americans and Latinosa€”no matter what the parenta€?s income or education level,a€? she said, according to SubstanceNews.net.

The ever-classy Lewis then fanned the flames of racism by accusing a€?venture capitalistsa€? of using a€?little black and brown children as stage props at one press conference while announcing they want to fire, layoff or lock up their parents at another press conference,a€? reports the Chicago Tribune.

Gun-Outlawed Chicago: 67 People Shot, 11 Killed Over July 4th Long Weekend
Image
Somehow liberals think that this is still the NRAa€?s fault.

Quote:
Eight people were shot a€” one fatally a€” in a drive-by shooting in which two men fired on a group of people at a home in the Lawndale neighborhood Saturday evening, authorities said.

At least one of the shooters used a rifle and casings were recovered at the scene, police said.

At least 67 people have been shot across the city since Wednesday afternoon during this long holiday weekend, 11 fatally.

In Saturday eveninga€?s shooting, four people in serious-to-critical condition and one person in fair-to-serious condition were taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, while one person in serious-to-critical and one person in fair-to-serious condition were taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, according to the Chicago Fire Departmenta€?s media office.

One victim, a 49-year-old man, was pronounced dead, according to the Cook County medical examinera€?s office. He was identified as Terry Patterson; his home address was not available. He had been taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound the groin, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Joshua Purkiss said.

At Stroger were: a woman, 72, with a wound to an ankle; a woman, 41, with a wound to her right thigh; a man, 43, with gunshot wounds to the leg and back; a man, 45, shot in the penis and right thigh; and a man, 48, shot in the leg and buttocks. At Mount Sinai were: a man, 31, shot in the wrist, and a woman, 20, shot in the right leg. Police described all the victims as having had their conditions stabilized.

Illinois Democrat Requests National Guard Come To Chicago To Help Stop War Zone Violence
Image
This is what happens to a city after being ruled by Democrats for decades.

Quote:
CHICAGO - Gun violence in Chicago is so severe that a state lawmaker wants state police and the National Guard to assist the local cops.

State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) is making the request.

a€?I am requesting with this press conference that Gov. Patrick Quinn order the Illinois National Guard (and) the Illinois State Police (to) come to Chicago and work with our mayor Ron (sic) Emanuel to provide safety for the children, especially,a€? she said at a news conference in Springfield.

Other state lawmakers accompanied Davis to recognize the severity of the problem, and the extent to which it carries beyond Chicagoa€?s troubled neighborhoods to the entire city and other parts of the state, but not necessarily to concur with her solution.

Over the holiday weekend, 74 people were shot and 12 killed in Chicago, and Davis says the police dona€?t have the manpower to make arrests.

The Next Detroit? Rahma€?s Chicago Bond Rating Downgraded
Image
Like dominoes, the bloated Democratic cities start to fall.

Quote:
On the eve of Detroit filing the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history, Rahm Emanuela€?s Chicago had its bond rating downgraded by Moodya€?s Investor Services.

Moodya€?s summarized the following weaknesses contributing to the citya€?s downgrade:
a€¢ Extremely underfunded pension plans: actuaries of the citya€?s four pension plans reported a total unfunded actuarial accrued liability (UAAL) of $19 billion as of December 31, 2012; using more conservative assumptions, Moodya€?s calculates an ANPL of $36 billion

a€¢ The citya€?s contributions to the pension plans remain well below a rapidly increasing annual required contribution (ARC); in 2012 alone, the city underfunded its ARC by more than $1 billion

a€¢ By 2015, state legislation will require the city to increase contributions to its public safety pension plans; the city projects its pension contributions will increase from $467 million in 2014 to $1.2 billion in 2015, placing tremendous strain on the citya€?s operating budget

a€¢ The Illinois Constitutiona€?s explicit protection of pension benefits all but ensures that any attempt to reduce the benefits of existing members would face litigation

a€¢ Limited political appetite for tax hikes that would improve pension funding

a€¢ Elevated debt levels, even without factoring in pension obligations

Image
Gun control, working as intended in Chicago.
