A woman has died after her van was ´riddled with bullets´ while she was driving on Chicago´s Lake Shore Drive early this morning. The shocking slaying comes days after a 15-year-old girl was randomly gunned down in a south-side neighborhood on Tuesday and brings the city´s death toll for 2013 to at least 43. Today´s shooting occurred at around 4 a.m. on the Lake Shore Drive ramp leading to Interstate 55. The 32-year-old woman was traveling south with a 37-year-old female passenger in her 2000 white Dodge when a

Comments:
The negligence of the national media in not reporting this is appalling. I can´t imagine how fearful I would be if I lived in that city.

If they could just get a couple of the killings to be white on black, we could get the Rev-runs and the media on top of this!

I also notice that once again, we are getting this information from a foreign media outlet. I assume the scant coverage of this typical occurance in Democratically controlled Chicago is for reasons similar to that of why the Benghazi shooting was at first ignored and then blamed on a video. It just doesn´t comport with Rahm´s vision of the city.

It is just more dead on proof that gun control laws don´t work. Pun intended.

Chicago should change their City Emblem to a person with a pistol target on their front.

FTA: "Police said the shooting was related to gang and drug activity and was not random."

There you have it. Chicago is not a dangerous city unless you are involved in a gang or drug dealing, or are in one of the bombed out neighborhoods where it takes place. Once in a while it spills out into the rest of the city, like this hit did. But you have a greater chance of being run over by a drunk driver or being hit by lightening than being hit by stray gunfire, unless you find youself in one of the bombed out neighborhoods where this drug war is being fought out.

These are lowlife losers, the product of the Great Society, fighting it out over drug turf. And all the marches and candlelight vigils will do absolutely nothing until the people in those neighborhoods stop protecting the animals who are murdering their children.

And make no mistake about it. They are animals. The were whelped by "mothers" by multiple "fathers," were on their own as soon as they could walk, raised themselves in the streets, and have absolutely no values or morals or human compassion.

It almost appears as if the politicians are standing by just letting them kill each other. Why bother to find a murderer if you know that if you just wait a few weeks his victim´s gang will take him off the street for you? And then that gang retaliates, and on and on. And no one cares until some good kid gets in the way. But all the good families know exactly who the gang members are, but refuse to turn them in. They are paying a big price for their racial unity.

It´s strange that the mayor´s name was not mentioned, nor was the fact that gangs which are known to run Chicago are permitted to run amock while Rahm burns with mayoral power, refusing to do diddly about any of this.

Chicago and Detroit should be declared war zones; no commerce in or out until the gangs are cleaned up, imprisoned or sent to live on Alcatraz with what I pray will be the rest of the criminals in America, including members of Congress. Especially members of Congress. Alcatraz isn´t being used. Put it to good use. We can have our own Gitmo.

Why doesn´t Rahm do something other than speciously noting that gangs should stop killing each other? Wow. That helped a lot, I see.

The woman is the latest victim of Chicago´s out-of-control gun violence.

"...GUN violence"? As though the guns themselves did the shooting without criminals pulling the triggers? How about "criminal gang violence", Rahm?

How about y´all quit the futile attempts to blame guns and gun ownership by lawful people?

How our media can sleep nights and continue to protect the criminals in high places is beyond my ability to understand. Conscience-less politicians run this country and until the citizens who live there demand change, it will remain so.

Facebook removes my post about

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
