Chicago police backtrack after
confirming 500th homicide

Chicago Tribune, by Jeremy Gorner & Peter Nickeas

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/28/2012 5:46:11 PM

Hours after Chicago police listed the shooting death of a West Side man as the city’s 500th homicide of the year, the department backtracked and said the city has yet to reach the grim milestone. Superintendent Garry McCarthy had told the Tribune Thursday afternoon that the homicide count stood at 499. Hours later, Nathaniel T. Jackson, 40, was gunned down outside a store in the Austin neighborhood and the department confirmed Friday morning that his death was the 500th homicide. Mayor Rahm Emanuel released a statement noting that "Chicago has reached an unfortunate and tragic milestone."

If they count homicides anything like they count votes in Chicago, then there really have only been about 28 gun deaths there.

Well, it´s obvious to the most casual observer that Chicago really does need a whole bunch more gun laws and regulations. The ones they have now are not worth spit so they need to add a bunch with some bite. Get some more liberals in there, they can fix it. S/O

It looks like Rahm "Machine Gun" Emanuel will have to take matters into his own hands if Chicago is going to make that historic 500th homicide this year.

They want to be sure that #500 is a card carrying democrat to receive the awards for being #500!

What happened to the nation of islam patrolling the city? I would think the head hackers would be VERY effective.

You know,the other day a man was shot in the head in broad daylight somewhere around Manhattan and hopped into a getaway car which was a deluxe silver Lincoln Continental and the cops actually lost the car after a couple turns by the getaway car.How can you not track down a getaway car of this distinction,unless they were told to stand down from the chase?More than likely is was a gang hit even though the victim was from LA.

The cops really don´t want to be bothered with gang related murders,so they continue to skyrocket. there may even be people who are glad these murders take place,one less criminal to worry about.

People like Rahm have no choice but to do nothing except have a sobbing press conference marking a grim milestone,which in reality isn´t grim to them at all.They don´t have the prison space,the prosecutors can´t get witnesses to testify,so they just go about their business.

Then you have Obama going on TV sobbing over some white kids being killed while being totally unconcerned when innocent black kids getting shot up.

Poverty is the universal fall guy for this behavior when there´s billions of people who live in real poverty that rarely kill one another.It´s just a plain and simple lack of respect for human life,which isn´t being helped by the abortion industry which throws human lives away on a whim.

Well, you see IL does not have concealed carry permits or recognize those of other states. The state is very tight on allowing anyone to have a gun.
That is why criminals feel safe shooting other people there.

Just wait a few minutes and I am sure that ´the grim milestone´ will be reached and even exceeded.

What a bunch of maudlin nonsense. The politicians go on TV and put out teary, over-emoted BS statements that mean nothing. 2013 will see at least another 500 go down. Nothing will change because no one wants to speak the truth about the cause....black on black violence

If the official number is 500 you can bet that that the real number is 1500 + - .

Vote count is an additive process but body count is more subtractive.

The Chicago goons have moved to DC and now want to take guns away from HONEST citizens. Wonder why?

They can´t even keep Chicago safe (500 homicides so far this year) but they want us to be disarmed. Wonder why?

Various gov´t departments ordered more than 5 billion hollow point bullets this year. Wonder why.

Think the gov´t goons are expecting citizen unrest or violence? Think the goons want to impose martial law?

I´m sending a big $$$ contribution to the NRA .

It´s time to just put a barbed wire fence around Chicago and change Rahm´s title from Mayor to Warden. He has let a crisis go to waste here big time.

How many times is this annual Chicago murder rate, the Swiss annual murder rate? In that country every citizen is required by Law to keep and know how to use a firearm and be always ready to be called up into the militia to defend their state. So it is not simply the fault of gun ownership.

Murder count formula in Chicago is like the federal unemployment rate--not too bad before a deadline such as election night or Dec 31. Then suddenly there will be an "unexpected increase" in Chicago deaths when nobody´s looking.

Not to worry! There´s still nearly 3 days to achieve the milestone. It´s a done deal.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
