Four shootings -- two of them double homicides -- and a stabbing left 7 people dead Saturday, authorities said. In what appeared to be the last homicide of the day, a 32-year-old man was fatally stabbed about 11:50 p.m. in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side, police said. The stabbing happened during a domestic argument in the 2500 block of East 73rd Street, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

Prohibition Chicago was a peaceful paradise compared to what Rham has going on. Just another day in the brokest city, in the brokest state, in the brokest nation in history.

City/County government just has not yet enacted the right combination of anti-gun/knife/weapons laws. Also waiting to be enacted are proper anti-crime laws. Passing the appropriate laws is the answer to all this murder and meyham. Eventually the politicians will hit upon the right combination of laws and peace and brotherly love will prevail. s/o

Do the "journalists" at the tribune, or any broadcast outlets in Chicago ever perform their duty by going beyond simply keeping a clinical running score of the murders, or do they just blame the guns? Do they dare ask the mayor about efforts to crack down on gang shootings such as a project exile law to slap thugs with a manadatory 10 year semtence for using an illegal firearm in a crime? The answers are no. These are rhetorical questions because the media in Chicago is an arm of the democrat party who might lose access to the democrat elite cocktail circuit, or much worse, If they pressed little rahm for answers.

Put Rahm in a patrol car and have him do a ride-along to see what´s really up every night in Chicago. Sitting up in his cushy lair he hasn´t a clue and probably doesn´t actually want one. An emergency ignored is an emergency foiled.

Name another country, other than Africa, whose immigrants come here, tear up great neighborhoods and homes, ruin businesses, drop out of school too stoopid to learn much of our culture, refuse to assimilate,and then proceed to murder each other at an alarming rate.

Back in the 1920´s there was an Idlewild project building bridges near Ellis Island, and the pay rates were posted for new immigrants to see and hopefully sign up to work...here´s what that sign said, and you´ll see why this Italian guy is still p.o.´d at the liars in the ass-press enemedia for coddling one group over another!


Whites $1.30 an hour
Blacks $1.20 an hour
Italians $1.10 an hour

I´m still upset about THAT, and the fact that they lie in public schools about Columbus being a crazy genocidal maniac who was lost at sea, yet Martin Luther King, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson, three black African shakedowm artists, are supposed to be "revered" by the low-info school kids who are subject to this brainwashing every damn day in schools across America, right in neighborhoods where blacks murder other blacks on a daily basis--Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Houston, Philadelphia, New York, Pittsburgh,Detroit, Gary, Indiana.... and on and on....such lovely wonderful people, those violent animal murderers!

I siggest a test market of Obama´s gun control, right here in Chicago! See how effective their plans are. No, gun control is about confiscation. period.

All they have to do to curb gun violence is increase any gun crime to a federal felony, with stiff mandatory sentences. Done.

But the atty lobby won´t let them.

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) – Tony Stewart told anyone who would listen why he continued racing anywhere, anytime, regardless of purse or crowd or car. Even after he flipped five times last week, Stewart was quick to offer a stout defense for his short-track weeknight racing while some questioned if his extracurricular racing was putting his championship chances in NASCAR at risk. Well, his championship chances are officially over for this season. The three-time NASCAR champion broke his right leg Monday night at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa

Which United States president will go down in history as the greatest humanitarian to have served in the office? The Republican Herbert Hoover is often known as the "Great Humanitarian" for his work administering famine relief in post-World War I Europe (and Bolshevik Russia) in the 1920s — but he did all that before he actually became president. Others might make the case for Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the Democrat who succeeded Hoover in the White House, whose New Deal initiatives relieved poverty and sickness on a grand scale within the United States.

There was an 1854 Lefaucheux pinfire pistol carbine on display, as well as an 1876 .22-caliber derringer in a glass box. But neither was for sale. It wouldn´t have mattered if they were. The gun enthusiasts who showed up in Rosemont on Friday for what was billed as the first-ever Chicagoland Gun Show didn´t seem interested in gawking at antique pistols. Some wanted to buy high-powered rifles, semi-automatic handguns and high-capacity magazines. But there wasn´t a single gun dealer at the show, only a Chicago collector who said he was there to show off his collection.

Springfield — Citing inaction on pensions, a prominent Wall Street bond-rating agency downgraded Illinois’ bond rating Friday, making the state the nation’s worst credit risk. The move by Standard & Poor’s to rate Illinois’ bonds at A- with a negative outlook comes as the state is preparing to go out on the market Wednesday with a $500 million bond issue. With the new lowered rating, Illinois eclipsed California as the least creditworthy state in the country in Standard & Poor’s eyes and could face higher borrowing costs. “We assessed what the pension fund status is,

Caterpillar Inc.’s stock was downgraded to “Neutral” from “Overweight” by JPMorgan Chase & Co. analyst Ann Duignan Monday. Duignan, who had rated Peoria-based Caterpillar “overweight” since April 2009, cited pressures on the sector to reduce costs and the potential negative impact on the U.S. coal and energy sectors following the re-election of President Barack Obama in downgrading the stock. Mining remains “pressured as companies continue to assess their investment plans for the longer term, and cuts are becoming more broad-based,” Duignan said in a research note.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged.

Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty.

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

As American voters watch ObamaCare continue its Godzilla-like rampage across the national health-care landscape, it´s worth considering the collateral damage this political monster may be doing to the Democratic brand itself. What if ObamaCare´s problems become a metaphor for the modern Democratic Party? Two portents emerged the past week. The United Auto Workers suffered a humiliating defeat at Volkswagen VOW3.XE -0.49% in Tennessee. And days before that loss, voters San Diego elected Republican Kevin Faulconer mayor after he teed up his opponent as a captive of the city´s public unions. Two big constituencies sacked in a week.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

We do need more degrees that lead to #jobs,” Rubio tweeted Wednesday. On Tuesday, it was revealed that Obama sent a handwritten apology to University of Texas art professor Ann Collins Johns for remarks he made at a GE factory in Wisconsin suggesting students were better off studying subjects more likely to land them jobs than studying art history.

In a letter released Thursday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told Republican leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee his commission “has no intention of regulating political or other speech of journalists or broadcasters.” Wheeler defended new FCC research as the first step toward pinpointing “market barriers” that might affect the “diversity of media voices.” Republicans expressed concern the FCC´s study was an attempt "to control the political speech of journalists” by reviving the Fairness Doctrine, now-extinct rules that required radio and
