Chicago - Chicago has welcomed thousands of migrants in recent months, bused in from Texas. CBS 2 has learned there's a plan in the works to house hundreds at an old school in the Woodlawn neighborhood and it's a decision many residents, and the alderwoman said, blindsided them. (Snip) "We have no idea what the background of the people are that they're talking about bringing here," said Woodlawn resident Tracey Thompson. "We as taxpayers, we deserve a lot more transparency and forthrightness."

No kidding, Alderwoman! You do deserve more forthrightness about what sort of folks are moving into your neighborhood. It doesn't mean they are bad folks. But there hasn't been a thorough vetting and due process as there should be. But that is a Joe Biden issue. Take it up with him, the mayor of Chicago, and the governor of Illinois -- all Dems, by-the-way. The three of them and others are doing the same thing to the whole of America. It isn't fair to citizens and it isn't fair to immigrants who go through the process legally. Enjoy higher taxes and fewer resources, Alderwoman and constituents. You voted in favor of this stuff!

Isn't Chicago a "sanctuary city"? Didn't they overwhelmingly vote for Progressive/liberals Democrats in the last few elections? Was this resident concerned about the "midnight" flights Biden dumped thousands of immigrants upon unsuspecting neighborhoods in PA and NY, and how they had no transparency or forthrightness? As poster #2 said, welcome to the border

FTA: Taylor, a frequent critic of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, informed residents about the city's plans in a letter, calling out the mayor for rushing to create housing in an area that's already struggling. And this is why they're being dumped in Woodlawn and not one of the Hispanic wards where they might actually fit in.

More than 233,000 Cook County residents applied to be part of the nation’s largest test of whether a universal basic income will reduce poverty, Cook County Board of Commissioners President Toni Preckwinkle said Monday. The 3,250 people who win the lottery to participate in the two-year program could get the first of 24 $500 monthly payments by the end of December, officials said. “The overwhelming response from our residents speaks to the need being felt in all our communities at this unique time in history,” Preckwinkle said. “Cook County is proud to be leading in the American guaranteed income movement and

“The ultrasound just made it feel a lot more real,” Sarah* recalled. “When I first heard my son’s heartbeat, there was an immediate attachment to the idea of him.” (Snip) “The focus groups kept bringing up ultrasounds — and the refinement of ultrasounds and 3D ultrasounds—and they just said, ‘Well, that’s a baby,’” Anderson explained. “The science of imaging has moved to a point where your average voter now says, ‘I’m not going to argue over whether that’s a baby. I know it’s a baby. Now, let’s talk about how we balance all this out, and balance that with the rights of the mother.’”

Chicago - CTA crime is at a level not seen in years, with over 80 cases reported in the month of September, according to police data. A 60-year-old man was shot on board a red line station Saturday morning and police are now investigating it as a homicide investigation. According to reports, crime on the CTA is at its high since 2015. CTA riders have told WGN they are most nervous about riding the Red Line. The transit agency has hired more secuirty gaurds, brought back K-9 teams and moved officers from desk duty from other units to the CTA. The CPD is still investigating the shooting that took place Saturday.

The marble monuments of the nation’s capital have become neighbors to abject squalor — ever-expanding tent cities that are the most disgraceful examples of a trend bedeviling Democrat-led cities around the US.

Brett Favre is one of the media’s favorite punching bags at the moment. Sports commentators and journalists say the retired quarterback is a very bad person because of allegations he participated in the misuse of state welfare funds. (Snip) Favre trusted state officials for their opinion on Nancy New. His primary goal was to help out his alma mater. As soon as he found out he received welfare funds meant for the needy, he returned them. But there is no way for Trump supporters to acquit themselves in the eyes of the liberal press.

A statue of Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln Park was vandalized Monday, with graffiti calling the former president a “colonizer.” The vandalism occurred about 12:30 p.m., according to Chicago police. Red paint was poured over the statue and “Dethrone the Colonizers,” “Land Back!” and “Avenge the Dakota 38” were spray-painted at its base. No one is in custody.

Some Chicago Marathon runners are feeling a little blue heading into this weekend’s race. One of the biggest events of the year for the sport followed Boston and London with the creation of a nonbinary division for runners who don’t identify as male or female. The lack of hype around the new inclusive division left some of those who identify as such with a bad taste in their mouths. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, there was no major announcement to coincide with the division. "Personally, it feels hurtful because it feels performative, or brushed under the rug, because it really is a big deal," Cal Calamia told the newspaper

Twitter employees have penned an open letter to soon-to-be boss Elon Musk and the Board of Directors begging to keep their jobs, after the Washington Post reported that Musk is planning to get rid of nearly 75% of the company's 7,500 workers - whittling Twitter down to a 'skeleton' staff of just over 2,000. "Elon Musk’s plan to lay off 75% of Twitter workers will hurt Twitter’s ability to serve the public conversation," reads a draft of the letter, which has not yet been published. "A threat of this magnitude is reckless, undermines our users’ and customers’ trust in our platform, and is a transparent act of worker intimidation."

A Russian court on Tuesday upheld American basketball star Brittney Griner's nine-year prison sentence for drug possession, rejecting her appeal in a session where she appeared via video call from a penal colony outside Moscow. Griner can still appeal to a higher court, but her lawyers have yet to confirm whether they will take the case further. The decision clears the way for the WNBA star to serve nine years in a penal colony, unless the U.S. government negotiates a deal. The eight-time all-star center with the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and a two-time Olympic gold medalist was convicted on August

Just a few days after U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced he would pull his Senate Leadership Fund PAC out of New Hampshire on the 25th, two polls showed the Republican candidate surging into what is now virtually a tied race. According to an Emerson poll released Monday, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Gen. Don Bolduc has surged five points since last month and is now down only three points — 45-48 percent — to incumbent Sen. Maggie Hassan. A second poll released by AmGreatness/Insider Advantage says we have a single point race, with Hassan at 48 percent and Bolduc at 47 percent.

I can recall the Trump administration being full of content as a writer for a conservative news site and commentary. Because someone was always worrying about the past president, there was always something to talk about. I was worried about Joe Biden’s inauguration, as it was too boring. What content can a nearly 80-year-old man offer? Biden’s boon would be a huge boon, and I was wrong. Biden has been an absolute goldmine and again provided more food for thought for those who prefer a president who can communicate.

The first and only debate between John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz is happening Tuesday. Fetterman, a Democrat and the current Pennsylvania Lt.

Since he suffered a serious stroke, his ability to serve in the Senate has been called into question. All polls still show Fetterman ahead of Oz, though only just barely.

Perhaps that time Hillary Clinton wandered the woods alone with a bottle of wine after the 2016 election should have been seen as a red flag. The twice-defeated presidential candidate and darling of the national press is back, and she’s crazier than ever. In what can only be described as a bizarre release, Clinton put out a video directly claiming that “right-wing extremists” have a “plan to literally steal the next presidential election.” I guess she’s now an ambassador for BlueAnon.

Two weeks before the most important off-year elections in the history of the nation isn’t a good time for Democrats to realize that the narrative that they’ve been relentlessly pushing has been a complete failure, but that’s the reality for a party that bet everything on portraying the January 6, 2021 chaos at the Capitol as a serious effort to overthrow “democracy” and is only now beginning to realize that voters could care less.
