An alligator is living in a lagoon in one of Chicago’s busiest city parks — and officials are working early Wednesday to remove the creature, police said. The gator — estimated to be between 4 and 5 feet long — was first spotted at the Humboldt Park Lagoon on the city’s West Side early Tuesday by visitors who spotted the reptile’s head poking out of the water. “During an early morning shoot, we encountered an alligator … YES!” photographer Rencie Horst-Ruiz posted on Facebook. “AN ALLIGATOR AT THE HUMBOLDT PARK LAGOON!”

Comments:

Probably some idiot's abandoned pet.

This poor creature is only one of many undocumented reptiles seeking asylum in the Sanctuary City of Chicago, hoping to escape the carnage of the crocodile cartels in Florida. He/she/ze is probably a "dreamer", brought to Illinois as a baby and has known no other habitat or local culture. Obviously, Chicago should do everything in its power to keep this youngster in the lagoon. Its the only home he/she/ze has ever known. This would, of course, include; free in-residence vet care, free food, free "housing", and let us not forget...free entertainment. Do they have concerts in the park? I'm sure the progressively progressive City of Chicago will be a leader in the fight for reptile rights.

When Neville Chamberlain returned from his meeting with Hitler in Munich he said that not only Hitler had signed peace in our time but also that he was a funny person. Why? Because when told of the troubles caused by Mahatma Ghandi in India he responded: “Shoot him”. I have similar views about this alligator.

I can only hope it is someone's prank when it is found to be a floating toy.

This may be the moment that political life starts to turn to crap for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Richard Baehr observes, “Criticism from conservatives attacking AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley wash off them. But when the Congressional Black Caucus goes after them and Pelsoi gets ticked off at them, then they will be marginalized.” The tyro pol who lives and breathes identity politics got too wrapped up in her self-righteousness. Scott Wong reports in The Hill: Congressional Black Caucus members are furious at Justice Democrats, accusing the outside progressive group aligned with firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) of trying to oust lawmakers of color, specifically African-American lawmakers.

The call to abolish ICE is repeated over and over again in American politics. This mantra is likely to be repeated with even greater frequency and intensity as the race for the Democrats’ presidential nomination heats up. But what does ICE actually do? A quick look at some of their actions from the past few weeks reveals the agency to be an unambiguous force for good. Date: June 21, 2019 Action: Over 17 Tons of Cocaine Seized from a Liberian Ship The street value of that much cocaine is north of one billion dollars.

Is Democratic presidential candidate, Kamala Harris a racist because she has proposed a $100-billion housing subsidy only for people of color? Even if they earn as much as $125K a year or more than twice the U.S. household median income of $60,336 in 2017. Not since the passage of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1868 has the federal government passed a race-based financial subsidy. Since at least the 1860s, federal funds have been colorblind and have given to all based on need as defined by income, not race. Providing funds based on race is, of course, unconstitutional,

House Democrats may trigger a backfire with their latest subpoenas as they ramp up efforts to investigate matters related to President Trump. The House Judiciary Committee is expected to vote Thursday to authorize subpoenas in its escalating investigation of the Trump administration’s immigration policies and of current and former Trump officials, including one name which could come back to bite them. The committee moved Tuesday to authorize the subpoenas for several people including White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski,

Republican Representative from North Carolina Thom Tillis sent out a press release on Tuesday which details upcoming legislation that will give a voice to those victimized by illegal aliens protected by sanctuary city policies. “The legislation creates a private right of civil action for the victims of sanctuary jurisdictions, allowing them to bring an action for compensatory damages against the sanctuary jurisdiction as a result of a violent crime committed by an illegal immigrant,” it reads. “Any sanctuary city or jurisdiction that refuses to waive its immunity as it relates to sanctuary-related civil action would be subject to the withholding of certain Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding.”

She then invited on Karl Rove, who was Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff in the Bush administration until 2007.

The governor of Louisiana on Wednesday declared a state of emergency over a storm that’s already caused severe flooding in New Orleans. The treacherous system, which is spinning in the Gulf of Mexico, is expected to make landfall in the Pelican State on Saturday, either as a tropical depression or as a tropical storm nicknamed “Barry.” “No one should take this storm lightly,” Gov. John Bel Edwards said at a news conference, warning that the storm system could bring up to 15 inches of rain and brutal winds to parts of the state.

'Hate has no place in the transit system and we work hard to make the subway a welcoming, safe environment for everyone,' read a statement from the MTA.

Rep.

I’m not afraid,” Waters reportedly added. “All of my life I have been trained to deal with demagogues like him. I will take him on any day of the week. And so what I want to leave with you today is this is our time, ladies.”

A failing campaign makes a man desperate, and Beto O’Rourke surely is a desperate man. The former Texas congressman was asked this week at roundtable event featuring immigrant and refugee participants to explain how President O'Rourke would fight white supremacy in the United States. "I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was founded on white supremacy,” the poorly polling 2020 Democratic primary candidate responded. He added, “And every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression, even in our democracy."

I suppose I should be thrilled that the U.S. Women's soccer team won its second world title but I confess to rooting for all their opponents during the games. I don't particularly care for soccer anyway but it was the purple-haired star player Megan Rapinoe who turned me off by spouting her disdain for any White House visit before she was even asked. Did she do that for publicity or was her Trump derangement too deeply entrenched? Stomping on the American flag even accidentally during the World Cup celebration was more proof of her unworthiness to represent our great country.

Long before Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to prostitution charges in Florida more than a decade ago, his fellow Palm Beach resident and hedge-fund manager Douglas Kass was intrigued by the local gossip about his neighbor. “I’m hearing about the parties, hearing about a guy who’s throwing money around,” says Kass, president of Seabreeze Partners Management. While stories about young girls swarming Epstein’s waterfront mansion and the sex parties he hosted for the rich and powerful were the talk of the town, Kass was more focused on how this obscure person, rumored to be managing billions of dollars, had become so wealthy without much of a track record. Kass was well-connected

The U.S. National Women’s National Team (USWNT) used paper from their gender discrimination lawsuit as confetti during their victory parade in New York on Wednesday. At one point, goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris said “pay us bitch” as her teammate Allie Long chewed on a piece of the confetti. (Snip) pay gap is far from just “gender bias,” the reason there is a pay gap between the men and the women is that the men bring in many more fans, and millions of dollars more in revenue than the women’s soccer. The pay gap is about economics, not gender bias.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) accused Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of racism on Wednesday, telling the Washington Post that Pelosi was guilty of “the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.” Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez — also known as “AOC” — have feuded ever since the “democratic socialist” newcomer upset incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), a member of the party’s leadership team under Pelosi, in last year’s primary race. The latest spat began on Saturday, when columnist Maureen Dowd of the New York Times reported that Pelosi had disparaged AOC and her allies on the left (original links):

The political misfits known as NeverTrumpers are begging for allies ahead of next year’s presidential election—and, as usual, they aren’t looking to the Right. This collection of failed magazine editors, Iraq War propagandists, washed-up columnists, Russian collusion pimps, and losing campaign consultants have dogged Donald Trump and his supporters for three years. While some anti-Trump “conservatives” who contributed to National Review’s infamous “Against Trump” issue in early 2016 have become supporters of the president, others cannot let go—but their obstinance is less about principle and more about grift: Acting as the useful conservative idiot for the Washington Post or MSNBC

The long-hated “turncoat Republican,” as some describe him, garnered the world’s unanimous rage again when excerpts from journalist Tim Alberta’s upcoming book, “American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump,” were obtained by The Washington Post and then described in detail in a piece published Thursday.The excerpts showed Ryan trash-talking the president. Why this angered conservatives is clear. What’s not so obvious is why this also angered liberals.In interviews with Alberta, the former House speaker had described President Donald Trump as an uneducated buffoon
