The DOJ does not prosecute themselves, accounting for the low level of prosecutions for corruption in DC.

On November 3, 1931 Mayor William H. Thompson completed his tern as Mayor of Chicago. He was the last republican to hold that office.

Can´t blame the republicans for this mess.

A point of pride for the City of Big Shoulders. Chicago criminality is a tradition acknowledged world wide. If you can make it in Chicago, you should be in prison. Here´s the twist: You´re not! Good times.

If based on convictions of corruption, then maybe all we are seeing is that Chicago pols have less self-discipline.

Or, maybe they´re more competitive in the pursuit of fiefdoms...

Chicago city hall was once built on the site of a pigeon rookery. That building still exists and has pigeons carved into its facade.

Hence the origin of the phrase "i´ve been rooked [ripped off]"

Congratulations to the politicians of the City of Chicago for keeping this crown. Every year, many other Democrat-run cities make serious runs at stealing this crown from the veteran crooked pols of Chicago -- Detroit, Milwaukee, San Francisco, Oakland, New York City, Newark, Washington DC ... all working hard to be even more corrupt.

But Chicago steps it up every year and wins the crown.

You know, the Feds went into the south to free it from the civil rights violations of the Dems back in the middle of the last century.
Why are they not doing the same thing in the northern Dem cities now?

obama and everyone associated with him

bill clinton and most everyone who worked for him

Cuomo plans on making NYS the #1 safest state in the nation for criminals by his crime reform that´s in his budget. If you get arrested for conspiracy to commit murder, rape in the 2nd or 3rd degree, promoting sexual performance by a minor, assault in the 2nd degree, or making terrorist threats (muzzies are home free), all will be immediately released back into the community pending trial. No more bail for them. Also, prosecutors have to hand over witness statements within 15 days (all the better for the perp to know who to go after). Do you think citizens will be safer? This is what happens when stupid voters turn the entire state legislature and governorship over to demonrat thugs.

Chicago is a cesspool of corruption, and has been for decades.

Why is Trump, and not Obama,

American Thinker, by Jack Hellner    Original Article

President Trump has been turned down by Democrats for a sensible border barrier, so he will declare a national emergency in accordance with a law Congress passed in 1976. Somehow, following a law Congress passed gets Trump labeled as a dictator. Here is the case for declaring a national emergency: Tens of thousands of people die each year from drug overdoses and a huge percentage of those drugs comes across the porous southern border illegally. Here is one story, headlined: "Deadly blue ´Mexican oxy´ pills take toll on US Southwest": Aaron Francisco Chavez swallowed at least one of the sky

MUNICH— German Chancellor Angela Merkel robustly defended European nations’ decision to stand by the Iran nuclear deal in a spirited backing Saturday of her multilateral approach to global affairs, but U.S. Vice President Mike Pence promptly accused Europe of once again undermining the United States. Merkel’s comments at the Munich Security Conference, an annual gathering of top global defense and foreign policy officials, followed days of tensions between Washington and Europe over Iran. U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement last year, leaving the others

When a liar lies they often have trouble keeping their statements consistent. Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe gave an interview to CBS and wrote an op-ed, a book excerpt, in the Atlantic with outlining a specific sequence of events, dates and statements surrounding the days immediately after James Comey was fired.

In mid-January, a federal judge blocked an additional question to the survey that wants to ask whether the participant is a U.S. citizen. The Supreme Court promised yesterday to hear the case quickly so it is resolved before the 2020 Census. The Census is done every ten years so that Congress knows how to regulate federal money and affects the amount of representation each district gets. The number of electoral votes is also determined by the Census. Liberal leaders have long been counting illegals in the Census to inflate representation, then electing representatives who declare their area a "sanctuary" for

The cost of living, the filth, the notorious New York attitude, the nanny-state tax-and-spend politics, and the decrepit subway all played a part. There was also its war on the Second Amendment — despite a Colorado concealed carry permit, a New York City long gun permit, and that, as an armorer, he equipped filmmakers with firearms, Luke was denied a pistol premise permit.

Four years ago, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society decided to do a study of MS prevalence in the U.S. The number of people with the disease that the society had been citing – 400,000 – seemed way too low to people in the MS community. So the society got together some very smart folks – neurologists, epidemiologists, statisticians – and they came up with an algorithm

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.
