Chicago police say multiple shooters opened fire at a man dining outside a Morgan Park pancake house Sunday afternoon, killing him and wounding four others. A 31-year-old man was dining under a tent outside the Lumes Pancake House near 116th Street and Western Avenue around 1:45 p.m. Sunday when police say a white SUV pulled up and “multiple offenders” exited before firing shots, killing him and wounding four other adult diners.(Snip)A family member later identified the 31-year-old man as Devon Welsh of South Shore, and said he was eating with his girlfriend and three-week-old baby at the time. Police said they believe he was the intended target of the shooting.


They hit their target but continued to shoot at random diners, including an infant.

I'm sure the Donald Trump was driving the SUV as most of the violence is blamed on him. These crazy liberal mayors are continually blaming the President's "divisive rhetoric" for all of the violence. The only divisive rhetoric I ever hear is coming from liberals and Democrats. They are always dividing people and accusing. They continually blame the President but in the media every follows up with a simple question to their rhetoric claims: "What specifically has Pres. Trump said that has caused rioting and looting?" There will be a short silence then accusations of "Everything", "Charlottesville" (how long ago was that and also not true), but nothing except their accusations. The media should then point to specific things that each of these mayors has said (and there is plenty of it) and written that has been divisive. Of course this all a dream and any media figure who did this would immediately be banned for life from every speaking to the mayors or even fired.

The victim was 31 years old - - but were the perps "teens" or "youths"? Perhaps they were "men"? So - - be on the lookout for "teens," and "youths," and "men." We've got to help the police to find them!

Chicago faces a 2021 budget deficit of $1.2 billion as the coronavirus pandemic decimates the city’s revenue with businesses shut down due to social distancing while recent unrest hurt reopening efforts. Next year’s projected gap comes on top of a 2020 deficit of nearly $800 million for its corporate fund, which accounts for many of the services the city provides, (Snip) Lightfoot’s administration will likely need to cut headcount, control spending, refinance debt, borrow and ask for more federal aid.

I am a member of a community of Catholics that has thought for months on whether to reopen our diocese schools this fall. As with any decision that relates to health and safety during the pandemic, it was not an easy one. But in the end, the diocese chose the path that was true to its purpose: The church exists to serve the community and minister to its needs. We do this in many ways. We operate institutions of healing — there are roughly 600 church-sponsored hospitals nationwide and 1,400 long-term care facilities. And during this pandemic, they have sought to save lives. We also operate 7,500 schools for 2.3 million students.

The NBA playoffs inside the Orlando bubble averaged 1.875 million viewers for the first week, down 20 percent from last season, per data from RealGM and ShowBuzz Daily. Industry insiders mostly chalk up the decline in viewership to the abnormal season, with games being played in August and often during the daytime hours, when television viewership is generally down across the board. That said, SportsBusiness Daily reported in February that ratings for regular-season games had declined by 12 percent since the end of the 2018-19 season.

Northwestern University’s campus in Evanston is going to feel less crowded this fall, with residence hall capacity reduced to about 70% and more than half of all employees still working from home, school officials said Tuesday. But those estimates didn’t fully assuage concerns from residents that students will instead move into neighborhood apartments and throw raucous parties, potentially accelerating the spread of COVID-19 in a suburb that has so far avoided an uncontrollable outbreak. Residents raised the issue Tuesday evening during a 90-minute Zoom meeting, billed as a “community town hall,” to discuss NU’s plan for repopulating its suburban campus when classes begin next month.

More active-duty U.S. troops say they’ll vote for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden than President Trump in the November election, a new poll shows, continuing a steady decline in the commander in chief’s favorability ratings among service members. A Military Times survey released Monday found that if the election were held today, 41% of active-duty troops say they’d vote for Mr. Biden, compared to just 37% for the president. Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI. Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.
Fact Check: Joe Biden Claims
‘I Am Not Banning Fracking’

CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking.”VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate. Biden said Monday — during a speech supposedly on violence: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.” The problem, for Biden, is that he explicitly promised to ban fracking during the second Democratic Party presidential primary debate on July 31, 2019, in Detroit, Michigan. CNN’s Dana Bash asked him the question directly: Bash: Thank you, Mr. Vice President. Just to clarify,

Joe Biden is in the Catch-22 of his political career, folks. If he stays in his basement, he faces the legitimate question of whether he’s fit — both physically and mentally — to assume the duties of the presidency. If he hits the campaign trail, he runs the risk of… Pittsburgh.The latter occurred on Monday, and it wasn’t a pretty sight. At all. Put another way, Joe had a very bad day in Pittsburgh. A really bad day.As my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported, Biden gave a speech in Pittsburgh on Monday that went far beyond simple gaffes and pregnant pauses.

The officer who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has been tried and convicted by Democrats, the media, and truth-be-damned activists before the case is resolved. It’s a mirror image of the Michael Brown shooting (the officer was cleared) in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd (the officer has yet to go to trial). The difference is this time, pro athletes, pampered and well-paid, joined the mob. They should be ashamed of their behavior.
