Census data: Some Chicago
communities buck murder trends

Sun-Times [Chicago, IL], by Michael Lansu *

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 6/13/2014 3:13:00 PM

Chicago Police recorded about 1,335 murders from 2011 through 2013 – a majority in communities where residents have little education and money. While low educational attainment and high levels of poverty are associated with murder rates, some Chicago communities buck the trend. Of Chicago’s 77 communities, Austin has the most residents, and the most people living in poverty. It also had the most murders from 2011 through 2013 with 96. However, just because a community has a higher percentage of residents living in poverty doesn’t necessarily mean it will have a high murder total. The East Side and Logan Square

Comments:
* [w/ Scarlett Swerdlow].

While the city of Chicago, 0bama,´s current home address and Rahm Emanuel´s politico domain bump fist each other on the statistical data of murder rates, they "ignore" the obvious. The pictures of victims are of all young blacks. They blame "poor and uneducated" like that´s not a problem in the current 0bamanation through the country. Try first looking for absentee fathers, mothers of multiple sex partners (using abortion) and social programs that keep them locked in their ghettos. After fifty years of dRATS "engineering" in Congress by throwing money at them, this is the expected results.

Comment: thin statistics usually tell us very little. This looks like such an article.

e.g. if my neighbor commits suicide today the 2014 suicide rate for my block would soar yet the rate for my city would barely move while the change in Arizona´s rate would be meaningless.

Consider also that some violence, such as gang related, are not independent events. The first murder may incite retaliations.

The article talks about the tiny Montclare district with a zero murder rate right next to violent Austin. What do you think the ethnic makeup of those two communities is? Hint: Montclare is traditionally Italian-American.

Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd
fired from ´The View´
Newsday [Long Island, NY], by Verne Gay    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/26/2014 10:30:36 PM     Post Reply
"The View," a daytime TV pillar and until last month headed by a TV legend, has come undone: ABC and its production partners on the franchise late Thursday fired Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, leaving just Whoopi Goldberg, who joined the show in 2007, as the only current castmember. "The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively," said ABC in a statement, first posted on Broadcastingcable.com which broke the story late Thursday. The firings are immediate. The show is on hiatus but will return July 7.

A look back at the same-sex marriage
movement’s victory-filled year

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s historic decisions in two same-sex marriage cases, clearing the way for a string of legal victories for the movement. In United States v. Windsor, the court struck down a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act. That decision granted federal recognition to the couples and would arm about several federal justices with the legal basis to overturn state same-sex marriage bans over the following year. In Hollingsworth v. Perry, the court ruled that a group seeking to defend California’s same-sex marriage ban when officials wouldn’t had no grounds to do so.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370:

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, missing since March 8, may finally be yielding some clues as to its disappearance. In a report issued by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, officials said they were confident that the plane was flying on autopilot until it ran out of fuel and crashed, according to the Associated Press. (Snip) The new information comes from a detailed analysis of communication between the plane and the Inmarsat satellite network, according to ABC News. Martin Dolan, the chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, said that someone on the plane had activated the autopilot.

New test could hint at nuclear

Researchers in the US and Britain say they have devised a simplified way to verify reductions in nuclear warheads that would meet the need of future arms control agreements while at the same time keeping information about a warhead´s design secret. The prospect for leaks of classified weapon-design information has been a concern within the arms-control community as it weighs different technological approaches to verifying whether a warhead is the real deal without opening it up. No country wants to reveal their designs to potential adversaries or to those who might sell the information to the highest bidder.

   

 

  


 
Barack Obama seeks $500m
to fund moderate Syrian rebels
Telegraph [UK], by Raf Sanchez    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/26/2014 7:36:59 PM     Post Reply
Washington - The US has signalled a significant escalation of the country’s involvement in the Syrian civil war after the White House urged Congress to approve $500 million (£293 million) to arm and train moderate rebels. While the CIA has been covertly training Syrian rebel groups for some time, the public programme would represent a major step-up in support for the opposition in their fight against both the Bashar al-Assad regime and jihadist groups. Mr Obama's request for funds also comes as the US gropes for a strategy to confront Isis, the Sunni militant group that has long operated in Syria but has now seized controls of large

Democrats: No bluff, Obama

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Mike Lillis    Original Article

The Obama administration is "not bluffing" in its intent to take executive action on immigration policy if House Republicans don´t act soon, top Democratic leaders warned Thursday. President Obama has delayed any potential changes to his deportation policy to allow House GOP leaders time to bring legislation to the floor this summer. But if the Republicans don´t act in July, the Democrats say, unilateral changes by Obama are inevitable. "We´re at the end of the line," Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. "We´re not bluffing by setting a legislative deadline for them to

I was a recess appointment.
The court made the right call.
Washington Post, by John R. Bolton    Original Article

The Supreme Court today dealt a blow to the president’s recess appointment power, one of the office’s most important Constitutional prerogatives. The court got Article II, Section 2 (the recess appointment clause) right, but the justices could honestly have gone even further in curtailing his power. Given President Obama’s incredible assault on the Senate’s right to decide its own procedures, he’s lucky they didn’t. There’s a right way to appoint officials without the Senate’s approval, and Obama whiffed. I know, because I was a recess appointee myself. The president is supposed to be able to fill government vacancies when the Senate is

The federal government has found a place in New Mexico to help house the tide of humanity pouring in from Mexico: The Border Patrol Academy, the very facility where agents are supposed to be trained to keep illegal immigrants out of the U.S. The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, a sprawling campus in the arid dirt plains of western New Mexico known for oil and dairy farms, could soon house hundreds of children and families that have crossed the southwest border. Tens of thousands of immigrants have crossed in through Mexico primarily from Central America, where they appear

Meet Leslie Caldwell. President Obama has installed Ms. Caldwell, known as a “terror of a prosecutor,” as head of the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice. It has been over a decade since Ms. Caldwell destroyed Arthur Anderson, and with it, 85,000 jobs—only to be reversed by the Supreme Court nine to nothing (well after she went into private practice). Now the president has brought her back—with a big promotion—and the vengeance of DOJ already aimed at Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas and others. Ms. Caldwell and her then right hand man, Andrew Weissmann, viewed businessmen and bankers as “wise guys on Wall Street,”

Satellite images of penguin droppings
reveal something pretty interesting
Live Science, by Kelly Dickerson    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/25/2014 12:57:16 PM     Post Reply
In the face of rising temperatures, emperor penguins in Antarctica may be forced to find new breeding grounds instead of returning to the same spot to mate year after year, new research finds. Scientists are tracking this climate-driven march by studying the penguins´ poop stains; in satellite images, the birds´ dark droppings against a gleaming white backdrop of ice reveal their every move. Emperor penguins are a philopatric species, meaning they return to the same spot each year to breed. When confronted with rising temperatures and receding ice sheets, however, the penguins may forgo their philopatric nature.

Washington - House Speaker John Boehner Wednesday told reporters that he plans to sue President Barack Obama over his use of executive action. "I am," the Speaker said when asked if he was planning to initiate a lawsuit. "You know the constitution makes it clear that the president’s job is to faithfully execute the laws and in my view the President has not faithfully executed the laws," Boehner added at a news conference on Capitol Hill. The Speaker denied that the move was about energizing Republicans ahead the midterm elections. "This is about defending the institution in which we serve.

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

With Iraq in danger of falling apart, new troubles on the Mexican border and other problems mounting up in Washington, President Obama on Thursday will try to the shift the narrative by reconnecting with average Americans. The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles.

Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month. Nor has he appeared at the recent plethora

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.
