Another weekend night in lawless Chicago. A video released this morning shows a group of spectators surrounded by a ring of fire as drag racers prepare to drive donuts around them. The flames were so intense that several of the spectators bailed out before the dragsters started their show. This took place at 2 AM at Lower Wacker Drive and Columbus Drive on May 1, 2022. There were no police in sight. CWB Chicago reported: The drag racers who flock to Lower Wacker Drive on weekends raised their game to a new level early Sunday when they surrounded a group of spectators

They have reached "Mad Max-Thunderdome" status in the unfolding timeline of Post-Modernity. There will arise a Wyatt Earp...or a Rick Grimes... that will be supported by a majority of the populace. It won't be pretty.

They're not dragsters or drag racers. They're illegal street racers. Typical inaccurate media.

.357 or .44 will go right through a car door / window / winshield and keep going through more than you might think - Just sayin' I know nothing like that would happen in Chicago 'cause geeze guns for the cannon fodder are illegal there !' Want this type of thing stopped ? You should be able to finish the answer from here. If you think ANYTHING just might work - I can cover some of the smaller bets. The people committing these crimes are NOT going to grow a 'civilized bone' let alone a 'law abiding bone'. They are going to have to be dealt with on their own level. There is no make-nice, discuss, negotiate ploys that are going to work. Eventually, someone, somewhere is going to say 'enough' and to **** with the consequences ! Again, just sayin'

Lori Lightfoot is the simple fool responsible for Chicago's demise but the entire Chicago PD needs to be replaced. You have thousands of unionized parasites collecting paychecks and doing nothing. During the one miserable year that I lived there, you could not go one block without running into a cop and they had so many parking scams and traffic traps going that you couldn't get through a week without being stopped for something. A ring of fire spectacle should have drawn half the cops in the city. Fire them all and start over.

Eleven people were shot in two mass shootings on Chicago’s South Side just five hours apart Tuesday night. One of the victims in the first shooting in Back of the Yards died, and a fight briefly broke out between police and residents who thought officers were not performing life-saving measures on the victims. In all, 21 people were shot in Chicago Tuesday, two of them fatally, a toll generally seen on a violent weekend in the city. At least 14 people were shot, two of them fatally, on Monday, and 24 people were shot — 6 of them fatally — over the past weekend.

Chicago (AP) — Chicago on Tuesday announced a bid to bring the Democratic National Convention that will choose the party’s presidential nominee to the city in 2024. “Hosting the 2024 Democratic National Convention in Chicago will create tremendous opportunities for job creation and business growth,” Lightfoot said, “and I am excited for the chance to show the world why Chicago is an important global city and the epicenter of the Midwest.” The announcement was accompanied by endorsements from top Illinois Democrats, including Gov.

I thought the hunt for male scalps was over. That the days of ruining men with flimsy allegations had faded into the rear view. I was wrong. Another man is being #MeTooed out of existence — accused, convicted in the public square, soon to be canceled without a trial or so much as a finished kangaroo investigation. All because he pulled a pony tail or two, draped his arm around ladies without first obtaining explicit consent. Guilty — of being an old-fashioned flirt.(Snip) some women felt uncomfortable and he crossed a line.’’ I’m not even sure where that line exists, or why the complainer didn’t simply tell Murray to “cut it out.”

In 2017, Steven Crowder, a conservative activist and host of a popular YouTube channel, infiltrated Antifa with his producer. Weeks before a speaking engagement by Ben Shapiro at the University of Utah—an event Antifa planned to disrupt violently—Crowder worked his way into the group through the use of burner phones and encrypted chats. Crowder secretly recorded discussions between Antifa thugs promising to use “plain clothes and hard tactics” to shut down Shapiro’s speech on September 28, 2017. This included distributing weapons such as ice picks, combat knives, and guns.(Snip)The FBI, Crowder said, didn’t express any interest in capturing the perpetrators, which Crowder found “odd.”

Evanston–Skokie School District 65 has adopted a radical gender curriculum that teaches pre-kindergarten through third-grade students to celebrate the transgender flag, break the “gender binary” established by white “colonizers,” and experiment with neo-pronouns such as “ze,” “zir,” and “tree.” (Snip) In kindergarten, the lessons on gender and trans identity go deeper. “When we show whether we feel like a boy or a girl or some of each, we are expressing our GENDER IDENTITY,” the lesson begins. “There are also children who feel like a girl AND a boy; or like neither a boy OR a girl. We can call these children TRANSGENDER.”

At Easter, the four-star hotel close to Britain’s most popular theme park, Legoland, is usually full of holidaymakers. Visitors rave about the spa and the swimming pool plus the fact that it’s a short hop to Windsor Castle, Ascot racecourse and the moorings of river Thames pleasure boats. But this weekend, the Holiday Inn in Maidenhead, Berkshire, was closed to tourists, outraging Britons who were hoping to stay there. It is now the home of migrants (Snip) Duncan Sharkey, chief executive of the local council, said he had recently been informed by the Home Office that the Holiday Inn would be used for ‘the foreseeable’ future to accommodate migrants ‘claiming sanctuary’.

(Snip) The justification for the statement is to incentivize faculty as early as possible to do societally impactful work, said Bill Bernhard, executive vice provost for academic affairs.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Tuesday warned that eliminating abortion rights would damage the U.S. economy and 'set women back decades.' 'I believe that eliminating the right of women to make decisions about when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades,' she said at a Senate Banking Committee hearing. Yellen was asked about the draft Supreme Court opinion that indicated justices support overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, and the effect such a decision would have on the economy. 'It enabled many women to finish school that increase their earning potential and allowed

Wells Fargo has become the latest major financial institution to set new greenhouse gas standards requiring borrowers in the energy sector to reduce emissions. Oil and natural gas companies must reduce their absolute emissions by 26% by 2030, based on 2019 emission levels, Wells Fargo said last week. Other power sector businesses must see a 60% reduction during the same time period. The new rules from Wells Fargo are part of a trend from financial institutions around the world to implement such climate regulations for its lending programs, joining the likes of Citigroup Inc. and the United Nations-convened Net-Zero Banking Alliance.

Harrisburg, Pa.—With six days until Pennsylvania's primary, Republicans are openly worrying that a leading candidate in the crowded GOP field for governor is unelectable in the fall general election and will fumble away an opportunity for the party to take over the battleground state's executive suite. Doug Mastriano, 58, a state senator since 2019 and a retired U.S. Army colonel, is running to the right of the nine-person Republican field and against the party's establishment in a state still roiled by former President Donald Trump's baseless conspiracy theories that Democrats stole the 2020 election there.

Many of us were alarmed on Election Night 2020 when, while the results were looking good for Donald Trump, multiple states suddenly stopped counting votes. As the night wore on and went into the next day, it seemed that every update was favorable for Biden until he was ultimately named President-Elect. While Trump’s campaign repeatedly promised to “release the Kraken” and bring forward evidence of election fraud that would prove that the election was stolen, focusing on electronic voting machines, that evidence didn’t materialize. RedState’s Scott Hounsell pointed out various states and cities – even down to the precincts – that should be investigated, and that information

Barrington, Rhode Island, public schools are among the best in the state. Many parents move to the district, and tolerate the higher taxes, because of the academic rigor that sets their children up for attending Ivy League schools or receiving academic merit scholarships. However, all of that academic appeal is being chipped away after the district brought in a so-called "equity and inclusion" agenda. De-leveling, or a system of universal learning, was first implemented in Barrington on the most vulnerable students—the students with learning disabilities and Individualized Education Programs (IEP). In February 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19

The gun-homicide rate jumped by a whopping 35% in 2020 against the backdrop of the pandemic while gun-involved suicides remained steady but alarmingly high, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a new report Tuesday. The report underscored the ripple effects of COVID-19’s impact on America and the agency’s decision to target gun violence after a decades-long silence. The overall firearm homicide rate jumped from 4.6 per 100,000 persons to 6.1 per 100,000 from 2019 to 2020, its highest level in nearly three decades. Rates increased among all age groups in both urban and rural areas and the largest increases were among Black

Joe Biden, the man who has been "wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades," as former defense secretary Bob Gates wrote, has nebulously put the U.S. on a path to war with Russia. Not because he wants to. But because he doesn't know what he's doing. That's the consensus of foreign policy experts as diverse as Thomas Friedman, golf buddy to President Obama, and Mark Wauck, the decorated former FBI official from its pre-wokedom era. According to Friedman, writing on May 6: If you just followed news reports on Ukraine, you might think that the war has settled into a long, grinding and somewhat boring slog
