A Chicago reporter who filed a lawsuit against Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot for allegedly silencing him by pulling his city press credentials fired back at her yet again in a fierce exchange at a Wednesday city council meeting.(Video)"You shut down our schools, you shut down the churches, you shut down the businesses. You did the one thing I thought could never happen: As somebody who was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, I never thought in my life that I would ever see the city of Chicago brought down so low," reporter William Kelly slammed Lightfoot. "I hope that, after today's city council meeting, you will

Now where was this outrage during her time in office? Where was the outrage about all the deaths during those weekly shootings? I am glad he is mad, but he needed to do that years ago.

Soon she will be available for the biden administration. Sec'y of HUD because she has 'experience' in running a big city. Merit is of no value.

#2...There was that outrage in the beginning and throughout her term as mayor. Lightfoot began her time as mayor being nasty to one of the top local, female reporter's who had been covering the mayor for years. Lightfoot was nasty to anyone who asked her anything that seem to question her narrative. She would simply pull the press credentials of any reporter who she felt crossed her. Her language at City Council meetings was foul. She accused White and Hispanic reporters of racism and sexism and finally declared that she would not give interviews to anyone but Black journalists. The good part of it all was that she finally awakened enough people in the city with her failure that they actually came out to vote this time. They knew she is responsible for the near demise of a beautiful city. No neighborhood in the city could be considered safe anymore. The high end stores on The Magnificent Mile are empty and boarded up. Unbelievable. There was a big field of candidates running. Only one was White. I said to my husband before election day that, sadly, Chicago was doomed if another Black candidate (particularly in that field) was elected. It looks like Paul Vallas (barring any hankypanky) will be the next mayor. He had good ideas when he was head of the schools in Chicago that he was unable to implement, but maybe this time, if he is still untouched by "Woke" he will bring Chicago back to life and sanity.

A spokesman for One Vanderbilt said the shaking was due to repair work on the elevators, and there were no injuries as the public viewing platform was closed.

With all other issues handled, feathered offenses are now a concern. Currently, leftists and activists are exposing their slipping grip on a narrative by routinely trotting out the deflecting question, “Can conservatives even define ‘woke’ properly?!” It is a neutered response and a sign that the fight against this movement is effective. This demanded defining was recently used in a similar fashion regarding Critical Race Theory, when the pushback to that curriculum being instituted in schools showed success. The only reason this lame attempt might have any traction is that leftists keep adding to the woke culture movement (their term, by the way),

The DA should be put in jail,” the Republican tweeted.Paul joins the voices of many who have slammed the indictment as a witch hunt and nothing more than a political ploy to smear Trump’s 2024 campaign. However, many believe that if Trump is to be arrested, it will only garner more support for his cause,

The Democrat Party has been a stain on the nation since its founding in 1828 by a virulently racist president, Andrew Jackson. It was the party of slavery and the Confederacy, it initiated racial segregation by legislating and brutally enforcing Jim Crow laws. It unabashedly aligned with and supported the Ku Klux Klan for over nine decades, thus promoting antisemitism, religious persecution and xenophobia. Over the past sixty-years the Party has embraced and promulgated cultural Marxism which espouses the transformation of traditional American culture and society.

Ron DeSantis attacked 'Soros-funded' prosecutor Alvin Bragg for creating a 'manufactured circus' in his first comments on rumors Donald Trump will be indicted. The Florida governor made the comments Monday after Trump's inner circle criticized him for staying silent on claims the former president will be arrested in the Stormy Daniels hush money case on Tuesday. It offers a dilemma to Trump's likely rivals for the Republican 2024 nomination: Do they take the opportunity to bash the former president for his indiscretions, or do they steer clear for fear of alienating the vocal, restless party base?

The day that Donald Trump proclaimed he’d be arrested is upon us. Will he or won’t he be processed and taken into custody on a weak attempt to relitigate the Stormy Daniels payoff? All we can do is wait, and since there is no timeline for grand jury deliberations, that wait could drag on. In the meantime, Trump is keeping his eye on the ball in the face of possible jail time. No, he’s not focusing like a laser beam on Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. He’s insinuating Ron DeSantis is gay. [Tweet] Those are just two of the posts Trump put on on Desantis on Monday.

The chaotic weekend saw two men shot dead and partygoers jumping on a car, brawling in streets and even trashing a slushie shop on the main drag despite the city instituting a curfew on Sunday night.

Climate Change is a religion. We all know that. The University of Helsinki has decided to make that official by giving Greta Thunberg an honorary Doctorate of Theology at the ripe old age of 20. Pretty sure she hasn’t graduated from High School, but maybe I am wrong. I thought she dropped out to become a climate change activist. Now that she is Dr. Thunberg she can glue herself to Volkswagens or something. Isn’t that what activists with Ph. D.s do these days?

Donald Trump has characterized his impending arrest this week as a political vendetta, and has urged his supporters to take to the streets in protest. I agree with him that it’s a political vendetta, but disagree about taking to the streets. It is indeed a nakedly political act by the Manhattan District Attorney. Numerous other prosecutors including sophisticated federal prosecutors have reviewed this same evidence, and have declined to pursue this case. Rightly so. It’s a lousy case. The legal theory is a stretch. Moreover, the prosecution’s fact witnesses are not credible.
