Chicago Police Supt.: ‘Stop
Adopting The Rhetoric Of Gun
Advocates, Chicago Does
Not Have Strict Gun Laws’

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, flanked by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, held a news conference on Monday where he sought to clear up what he characterized as misconceptions about the Windy City’s gun laws. “Stop adopting the rhetoric of the gun advocates,” McCarthy implored the press. “Chicago does not have strict gun laws.” (Snip) "We’re here today to talk about the fact that we need mandatory minimum sentences in the state of Illinois,” McCarthy began. He said that he has seen the impact mandatory sentences can have in his prior role as the director

Comments:
Really? No wonder they have a crime problem in Chicago if these are the types of people policing the city. Amazing. That should really make the people of Chicago feel great. s/o

Ah, Okay.
And "mandatory" sentences are rarely meted out.

It doesn´t? Then why would I be a felon in all of Illinois for doing what is perfectly legal and proper in most states in the country?
I go a long way out of my way to avoid that criminal paradise (and keep my revolver loaded and holstered).

So the other issue is that "mandatory" sentences would likely disproportionately hit a certain demographic group, and that would require many studies, much hand-wringing, commissions, reviews and recommendations, and ultimately reparations for those most affected.

What my "dog whistle" hearing is making out is that they have lightly enforced gun use laws, but heavily enforced gun ownership laws.

If you use a gun in a crime, you get a smack on the wrist. If you try to lawfully carry a gun as is legal in most other states, then they will throw the book at you for every infraction, imagined or otherwise.

"Mandatory minimums" are unjust and wrong. Sure they cut down on crime. So does locking up everyone who jaywalks for 10 years! I know you folks think all judges are lefties that are soft on criminals, but that is really not the truth at all. A lot of judges are corrupt and get paid off, and we also do have a few bleeding hearts out there, but overall, most judges are not like that. We just hear all the stupid stories. There are many more that are worse and if you are poor, expect to be convicted even if you are innocent. Or if you were caught with others (perhaps even against your will) who did something you didn´t expect, plan to possibly spend the rest of your life in prison. The system is broken, folks. And if you want to take discretion away from judges in sentencing, then you must also agree with zero tolerance rules in schools where kids are kicked out for drawing pictures on their binders. It is the same mentality.

One of the unfortunate consequences of mandatory minimum sentences is the plea bargaining of felonies down to misdemeanors.

Woo Hoo! Finally! Focus on the shooters not the guns! Mandatory sentences work. 93 % of Chicago gun criminals walk, thanks to greasy atty´s & pols.

I´ll believe it when I see it but if they do pass mandatory sentencing... that is awesome!

"Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, flanked by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel"

I can´t stop laughing about this guy being "flanked" by the ballerina. McCarthy reminds me of "Baghdad Bob", standing in front of cameras while U.S. tanks were rolling in the streets and denying that the Americans weren´t there.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:55:46 PM     Post Reply
Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent
Doesn´t Lead to ´Elevated or Even
Rational´ Obamacare Opposition
NewsBusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:47:27 PM     Post Reply
At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act.

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
