It is a sign of the depth of governmental corruption of our age in America that the distinctions between government and gangsterism are blurring. Now, news comes from Chicago that federal investigators who have already indicted Aldreman Edward M. Burke on 14 counts of corruption have discovered that "Chicago's most powerful alderman" used a series of “burner” cell phones that he assigned a staff member to buy for him.

Burke's top henchman, "Petie" Andrews is the skumbaggs skumbagg. A filthy, despicable individual if ever there was one. I hope that they all rot in jail.

This is the same dedicated public servant who had 23 guns in his office when he got raided and of course he has been an ardent advocate of keeping the law abiding unarmed. This is what should be expected of a century of one party rule. Since our federal government representatives discovered that there is more to be gained by joining forces and keeping outsiders out of government opposed to fighting each other over their end of the swamp, much of the same effect has permeated Washington. And they still don't understand why we elected and continue to support Trump. Chicago is the core of the communist revolution rotting out our country. There's a reason why Obama came to Chicago.

Chicago, where corruption is normal and an honest politician is just like a unicorn. And that's where Barry The Zero learned all his politics.

What ever happened to Fast Eddie Vrdolyak? He and Burke were trouble makers during my stay in Chicago area, 66 to 2000. Witnessed major deterioration of what was a safe and beautiful city!

Vrdolyak became a Republican after the Harold Washington era. Being a Republican in Chicago may or may not be the reason he was indicted a decade ago on various charges. I think he served time in a Federal prison and has been indicted again for something.

Even the dumbest terrorist from any of the world's sand pits knows enough to use burn phones. Law Enforcement today has learned how to use the cell phone to create a map of recent activity, locations of people down to the square foot and IDs of contacts. Any criminal who uses an identifiable cell phone is making their job relatively easy. Thankfully most criminals are as dumb as rocks but you don't survive Chicago politics for as long as Burke did by being dumb. If ever organized crime had a capital city...

Knock out 6 hours a day sleeping and we're down to 2 minutes a call.And it's impolite (phone or not to speak while eating.. What the hell does tis guy need a burner phone for. He's apparently spending every waking moment talking to somebody on his regular phone. Then we text then we tweet then He has a social media call from Occasionally-Cognizant to remind him that Rahm is out the door.

“There’s nothing that I cannot do as a black woman sitting in this chair or in this society, in this country, that you can do as a white man. It’s all about our choices,” writer, producer, and conservative commentator Candace Owens says. Owens is the founder of Red Pill Black and the leader of the “Blexit” movement, which encourages black Americans to reevaluate and renounce their allegiance to the Democratic Party. She argues that the core of the Democratic platform is emotionally manipulating people—from women to minorities to the LGBTQ community—into believing they have been oppressed and victimized.

The variety and vehemence of put-downs in the media today must reveal fear. Nothing else could account for the near-hysterical reaction to a meeting aimed at free speech. It certainly looks as though the nation’s left-wing media establishment doesn’t want their conservative media competitors to have access to social media links, leaving them in control of online readership. Today marks the White House “Social Media Summit,” and the level of disparagement is startling.

Long before Donald Trump became President of the United States, the Opinion section of The New York Times was already a hotbed of America-loathing (if not outright hating) leftist ideology. They just used to try and hide it a little back then. One of Trump's greatest achievements as president thus far has been to unmask the brand of coastal elite liberalism that wants to cherry pick the parts of the American experience that fulfill their needs all the while decrying whatever they deem the stuff that is only enjoyed by anachronistic yahoos.

The Left's hysteria over Trump's victory in 2016 has escalated into something quite beyond mere hysteria. Now the leftists are well and truly dangerous. Antifa, the fascist organization that protests anything and everything with which it disagrees, is violent, very violent. These people show up with weapons, wearing masks, and attack anyone they perceive to be in opposition to their own warped ideology. CNN has long defended the group as good guys, social justice warriors. That is how off the rails CNN is. Like Antifa, CNN is officially and openly anti-American.

It has been quite a week for the Democrat Party. Actually, it has been quite a decade. It began when, just seven years after Islamic extremists executed the worst attack on U.S. soil killing almost 3,000 Americans, destroying the World Trade Center, and bringing America briefly to its knees, the country elected Barack Hussein Obama as President. Obama had no executive experience but he was a community organizer and he managed to pull the wool over the eyes of the majority of the electorate – twice.

It comes as no surprise that Trump is constantly assaulted by the media, the Democrats, desultory members of his own party, the churches, the “Deep State,” late-night comics, the entertainment industry and by those euphemistically known as the “coastal elites.” After all, he is a member of that rare breed of political personage who put the nation before themselves; in other words, he is a principled president, which is anathema to the host of ideologues and sycophants who constitute the political class and the cultural establishment.

SANTA CLARA, CUBA—Is Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara too moderate for a 2020 run as a Democrat? That's the question the left is asking after Guevara was resurrected by a leftist political action committee, Marxists for Equality, Socialism, and Stalinism. MESS activists arrived in Santa Clara earlier this week and summoned Guevara's spirit back from the dead using dark, demonic rituals, which are well-known to many Democrats. MESS then hastily photoshopped a birth certificate for Zombie Guevara so he would be eligible to run for president of the United States.

How has Trump maintained his base through all the adversity of the last three years? Surprisingly, the explanation is simple. His critics haven’t talked to the people, but instead, have talked to each other. These experts still don’t know how America got here, but the people do. When the vast unwashed masses voted for Trump, there were several reasons, and the most important was Hillary Clinton. To defeat her would require someone who could break the logjam of Midwest industrial states. It was obvious that Clinton could not appeal to them, because she lacked sincerity.

President Donald Trump should "admit that climate change is real" and start figuring out ways to confront it. That wasn't advice from prominent congressional Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez but rather from one of the president's staunchest allies in Congress: Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. "I'm tired of playing defense on the environment," Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday as he and other GOP lawmakers announced the formation of the Roosevelt Conservation Caucus, which will "embrace and promote constructive efforts to resolve conservation and environmental problems." In response to a question about the president's environmental record, Graham said Trump should agree

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

President Trump has a challenge for investigative journalists everywhere: Find out who visited convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein’s island. The billionaire whose plane was called “Lolita Express” by pundits often brought the rich and powerful to his private island. The president on Friday noted that reporters now focused on outgoing Labor Secretary Alex Acosta’s prosecution of Mr. Epstein should dig into who visited what became known among locals as “Orgy Island.” “Other people, they went all over with him,” Mr. Trump said from the White House lawn. “They went to his island and all over the place.

We have also cut off ICE access from any CPD databases and that will remain permanent,” Lightfoot said. “Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart.”

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

Megan Rapinoe, the captain of the World Cup-winning U.S. women’s soccer team, has become the latest ideological thorn lodged underneath the collective skin of conservatives. But Rapinoe kneeling during the national anthem or saying that isn't “going to the f***ing White House” seems downright inoffensive compared to her behavior over the course of the past few days. Appearing on multiple news outlets, Megan Rapinoe appeared self-centered and divisive. She criticized President Donald Trump, as expected. She made accusations of homophobia, as expected. And an adoring Rachel Maddow called for Rapinoe to run for president, as expected.
