The DOJ does not prosecute themselves, accounting for the low level of prosecutions for corruption in DC.

On November 3, 1931 Mayor William H. Thompson completed his tern as Mayor of Chicago. He was the last republican to hold that office.

Can´t blame the republicans for this mess.

A point of pride for the City of Big Shoulders. Chicago criminality is a tradition acknowledged world wide. If you can make it in Chicago, you should be in prison. Here´s the twist: You´re not! Good times.

If based on convictions of corruption, then maybe all we are seeing is that Chicago pols have less self-discipline.

Or, maybe they´re more competitive in the pursuit of fiefdoms...

Chicago city hall was once built on the site of a pigeon rookery. That building still exists and has pigeons carved into its facade.

Hence the origin of the phrase "i´ve been rooked [ripped off]"

Congratulations to the politicians of the City of Chicago for keeping this crown. Every year, many other Democrat-run cities make serious runs at stealing this crown from the veteran crooked pols of Chicago -- Detroit, Milwaukee, San Francisco, Oakland, New York City, Newark, Washington DC ... all working hard to be even more corrupt.

But Chicago steps it up every year and wins the crown.

You know, the Feds went into the south to free it from the civil rights violations of the Dems back in the middle of the last century.
Why are they not doing the same thing in the northern Dem cities now?
Look at the way they act, all these Dem stronghold cities are just mafias by another name.

obama and everyone associated with him
hitlery and everyone who worked for her
bill clinton and most everyone who worked for him
tom daschle
john f´in kerry

Cuomo plans on making NYS the #1 safest state in the nation for criminals by his crime reform that´s in his budget. If you get arrested for conspiracy to commit murder, rape in the 2nd or 3rd degree, promoting sexual performance by a minor, assault in the 2nd degree, or making terrorist threats (muzzies are home free), all will be immediately released back into the community pending trial. No more bail for them. Also, prosecutors have to hand over witness statements within 15 days (all the better for the perp to know who to go after). Do you think citizens will be safer? This is what happens when stupid voters turn the entire state legislature and governorship over to demonrat thugs.

A President who used the IRS to go after his adversaries, a Gun running DOJ, corrupt FBI, filled a swamp over its banks with those who intend to control and steal from citizens, And one who gave pallets of cash delivered using unmarked planes to enemies of our great Nation. need I go on?

Chicago is a cesspool of corruption, and has been for decades.

For those who believed him, well, there’s no getting around this: you were wrong and you got suckered. The alleged hate crime against actor Jussie Smollett, who stars on the Fox show “Empire,” sparked another national outcry. Two white men punched him, poured bleach on him, and tied a rope around his neck. They wore red hats and told him, “this is MAGA country,” while hurling racist and homophobic slurs; Smollett is black and gay. Oh yes, blame President Trump. Blame his

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

Now for the charming topics of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Ed Markey, and the so-called “Green New Deal.” If ever there was a multi-pronged way to snatch Depression from the Jaws of prosperity, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez seems to have hit upon it. Ms. AOC has discovered that the planet is warming to an alarming degree. Never mind that she is in no sense a scientist.

Failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton warned of “real national emergencies” that included “Americans dying for lack of health care,” despite Obamacare remaining in place. Clinton posted a message Monday appearing to take aim at President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border. She offered four alternative “real national emergencies.” The real national emergencies: – Relentless gun violence. – Children separated from their families at the border. – Climate change. – Americans dying for lack of health care.

A lot of Americans are justifiably angry that disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe is doing a book tour rather than a stretch in some federal penitentiary. He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.

The “we reported the Jussie Smollett case responsibly” contention has been blasted to smithereens. Twitter accounts and headlines in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times reported as fact Jussie Smollett’s wildly implausible allegations, and many other journalists did so as well, not to mention the innumerable activists and celebrities who piled on. So, a question for all of the above. Why did you believe Jussie Smollett? Let’s try to catalogue the red flags. Had you ever heard of Jussie Smollett before the alleged January 29 attack?
