Witnesses say two gunmen shot and killed a 14-year-old Chicago boy Friday night as he stood on his porch, and then left him to die in the front hallway of his own home, authorities said. The shooting came just hours after a 15-year-old boy was fatally shot in a separate attack. The death marks the sixth shooting of a teenager since Friday. Two male shooters opened fire about 11:50pm, hitting the boy multiple times in the chest, reports The Chicago Tribune.
Where is Holder when "his people" are being murdered? Oh yes- as long as it is black on black it is ok. Holder arms Mexican cartels to kill Mexicans and US law agents. This is what happens when the criminals are in the WH and the Executive Branch. Obama will go down in infamy along with his Islamist thugs
How can this be? Guns are not allowed in Chicago...don´t tell me the laws of Illinois or Chicago don´t mean cra*...you mean people use guns illigally? So where are the cops? Where is the Mayor? Where is the Governor? Where is the President? This is a great start for 2013...last year they knocked off OVER 500 ´citizens´...Ya think some tough laws will stop this shooting gallery? ZZZZZ
Where is the outrage? Where is the mainstream media´s 24/7 coverage? Where are the so called black community leaders? maybe because it´s blacks on blacks it has to be swept under the rug? Do we see racism here?
Former VP Dick Cheney declared this morning that he doesn´t believe that President Obama thinks the United States is "an exceptional nation." On Fox and Friends, Cheney was asked what the main difference is between the Bush and Obama administrations when it comes to foreign policy. Cheney said that our adversaries no longer fear the United States, and our allies don´t trust the Obama administration to follow through. "We´re withdrawing from the Middle East, cutting the Defense Department budget to the bone, doing enormous damage there. ... The bottom line is nobody cares much in the Middle East what the U.S.
Emerging from behind airplanes and space capsules, the United States Air Force Band surprised visitors at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum with a flash mob performance involving 120 musicians. The four-minute show was started Friday when Technical Sgt. Edward Prevost, a cellist, began playing after sitting down in a chair in the museum’s “Milestones of Flight” gallery, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette. The full band soon joined in, playing an arrangement of Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring and Joy to the World, while vocalists emerged from the museum’s second-floor balcony.
During the December 8th episode of This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Republican strategist Mary Matalin countered arguments for a higher minimum wage by arguing that Obama´s economic policies are responsible for the very poverty it´s designed to fight. This was in response to Professor Michael Eric Dyson´s claim that "income inequality" and day-to-day arrangements for "the working poor" present problems that demand immediate attention. Dyson said we cannot even measure the number of the jobs created under Obama or make broader economic plans until "we deal with people who are at the bottom." Matalin quickly returned fire, emphasizing that the
When Mohammad Hamedi Rad arrived in the United States last year, he carried his Iranian passport, a hard-won student visa and a backpack containing $14,000 in hundred dollar bills, because there was no simpler way of getting money into the country. "It was scary," Hamedi Rad, a chemical engineering graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said of his late-night arrival in Chicago, where he declared the funds to airport customs officials. "I´ve never carried that much money before. I was extremely nervous." Hamedi Rad´s experience is by no means unheard of among many of the thousands of
This spectacle had to have the white-hot spotlight, front page, bold type (whoa-oh!) — to quote one of the evening’s celebrated songwriters — because this Kennedy Center Honors gala was a talker. The night might have begun as the latest parade of cultural icons seated in an opera box with their president, but when a rapper and a Supreme Court justice take the same stage, it isn’t your standard lifetime achievement fete. (Snip) The show — hosted by actress Glenn Close — began with a resounding rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” played by Cuban jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. Should anyone
The "Piano Man" who became one of the world´s best-selling artists of all time with such hits as "Just the Way You Are," "Uptown Girl" and "Allentown" is being awarded the nation´s highest honor Sunday for influencing American culture through the arts. Billy Joel joins Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, opera star Martina Arroyo and actress Shirley MacLaine in receiving the Kennedy Center Honors. All of them have been playing music, dancing or singing since they were children -- and have never stopped. Joel said the honor stands apart from his six Grammys. "This is different. It´s our nation´s capital," he
Couples should not have children if their relationship is not stable enough to merit getting married, a senior High Court judge said yesterday. Sir Paul Coleridge said those couples whose relationship was stable enough to cope with the rigours of child rearing should marry. But the judge, who is retiring from the bench next year after decades as a family lawyer and judge, said those who did not feel ready for children should not have them. He said couples had no right to have children, “you only have responsibilities if you have them”. Sir Paul criticised warring parents’ obsessions with
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
