Chicago mayoral candidates Lori Lightfoot and Toni Preckwinkle denounced homophobic flyers featuring Lightfoot that surfaced on the city´s South Side over the weekend, as early voting started at all 51 locations across the city Monday. According to the Chicago Tribune, the anti-gay flyers had a photo of Lightfoot and her wife with their arms around each other. The flyers said, "The Feminist and Gay Movement Have Come Full Circle!" The flyers also said Lightfoot was "pro law enforcement" and said, "All contracts, jobs, and employment newly assigned exclusively to gay people!”(Snip) Preckwinkle called the flyers “disgraceful” and said they have

A homosexual named Lightfoot. A little light in her loafers, then?

The jokes just write themselves.

Of course, Chicago is the real joke.

The mayoral run off election is on April 2, so not too soon for early voting. Two bad choices from a bad field, but that’s the Chicago Way.

Well, at least the flyer didn´t call Lightfoot´s supports ´dplorables´. Come on, hard nose politics in elections is common. Neither is worthy of voters´ trust if they are so thin skin as to be offended by a pretty tame flyer.

Why do I think that these "homophobic" flyers (and maybe they truly are) targeting Lightfoot are actually being put out there by her supporters?

Perhaps because I think it improbable that anyone would believe that such flyers would make a significant number of people less likely to vote for her. Anyone who would be less likely to vote for her because of these flyers was almost certainly already aware of her proclivities and would have been voting against her already.

The flyers are aimed at black voters. Many are religious and disapprove of the gay lifestyle. Don’t be so sure Toni isn’t behind the flyers. She is black (ethnically, not
skin tone) and stands to gain if black voters are uncomfortable withLightfoot.

Chicago is a lost cause no matter who gets elected. The democrat machine runs the show and they tell the voters how to vote so campaigns are essentially just sideshows.

The people of Chicago already know the two candidates, so the flyers will only work with extremely politically unsophisticated and stupid constituents who have kept the liberal Democrat Chicago machine in power for as far back as anyone can remember, and there are a lot of them in Chicago. So there is your answer.

This is not ‘homophobia’. That is a made up condition that has no basis in fact. This is the way liberals play politics. If they don’t think your votes are at risk you do not matter. If they need to use your homosexuality against you they will. But by all means keep voting for them and keep pretending they love you. They actually don’t care about you one way or the other.

The number of women drinking to excess is on the rise. Experts are worried about the clear and troubling trend showing women, especially moms, developing alcoholism.(Snip) Alcohol is killing more women today than opioids. In fact, the number of deaths attributed to alcohol spiked 85 percent in just 10 years, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. “Women drink a good 2½ times more frequently than they did 50 years ago,” Dr. Steven Wyatt said. Wyatt says there are many reasons women are so at risk. “So it´s actually absorbed more rapidly by women than men,” he said.

The Supreme Court will not take up a case involving whether houses of worship in New Jersey can be awarded taxpayer-funded grants for historical preservation, letting stand a lower court ruling that determined they could not. At issue in the case are historic preservation grants awarded by Morris County, New Jersey, to 12 churches between 2012 and 2015. The grants are funded by a county tax dedicated to historic preservation. In 2015, Freedom from Religion Foundation and David Steketee, a resident of Morris County, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey Superior Court arguing the grants violated the New Jersey Constitution.

A portion of Lake Shore Drive will remain closed after crews declared a "structural emergency" on a bridge Monday. Just after 11:30 a.m., the Chicago Department of Transportation shut down the northbound lanes at Monroe Street to Grand Avenue. A CDOT crew working in the area discovered a cracked steel beam supporting Lake Shore Drive near Randolph Street leaving the roadway uneven. While they were starting repairs, they inspected the rest of beams and found another one with a crack on the other side. (Snip) That is two girders that failed out of seven on the stretch of viaduct.

Rahm Emanuel, racism, and Chicago Public
Schools´ massive, underreported sex abuse scandal

Why is Mayor Rahm Emanuel getting a pass on the Chicago Public Schools rape and sexual abuse scandal? In this era of #MeToo and grand jury investigations of the Catholic Church, Emanuel should have been driven out of Chicago with pitchforks. Instead, the Democrat Party and the media have been giving him high-fives as he takes a victory lap on his mayoralty. Back in June, a Chicago Tribune investigation uncovered 523 credible cases of rape and sexual abuse of minors at CPS over the last 10 years.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

A group of black seminarians is seeking amends for the Princeton Theological Seminary’s founders’ and early faculty’s ties to slavery.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers are reportedly asking him to consider pledging to just serve one term in office if he wins his party’s nomination and faces off against President Donald Trump in the general election. (Snip)Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.”
