Two girls, 7 and 13, shot at Far South
Side school end-of-year picnic

Chicago Sun-Times (IL), by Luke Wilusz, Francesca Gattuso,*

Khia Shanks, an eighth-grader who graduated Thursday, was making water balloons for the big water-balloon fight — a normal occurrence at end-of-year school picnics across the country. But this end-of-year event at Warren Elementary on the Far South Side ended up being anything but normal. Instead of balloons flying, there were bullets. “The kids were running around the playground playing with water balloons,” 14-year-old Khia said. “I went outside and saw a black van drive by and someone fired about five shots. “I ran inside. I was in shock.” (Video) Two of her schoolmates, ages 7 and 13, ended up

How could this happen? I thought Chicago had loads of "common sense" gun control laws.

Chicago is full of racists. It´s just black kids, so who gives a damn. What a bunch of enablers. If this happened in the exclusive white enclaves of the progressive puke´s neighborhoods, they would ring it with national guard troops and patrol the fences with Rottweilers.

A murky struggle has erupted that, it is claimed, could torpedo a mainstay of the progressive propaganda machine. The left wing “fact checking” site Snopes.com says that it is fighting for its life and desperately needs donations, according to its founder David Mikkelson. As AT readers know all too well, Snopes has been known to twist facts and definitions to validate progressive tropes under the guise of neutral examination of the acts. Under this camouflage, Snopes was chosen by Facebook as a source of vetting for “fake news,” putting it in the position of censoring access to material on the

A 92-year-old World War II veteran who was assaulted while trying to protect his American and Marine Corps flags outside his Texas home was surprised Sunday with an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. After hearing noises outside his Dallas-area home earlier this month, Howard Banks said he went outside and confronted someone trying to steal or damage his flags. Mr. Banks, who was left legally blind by a flare on Iwo Jima, said he was shoved to the ground before the vandals ran off, the Associated Press reported. Kaufman police are investigating. “We’ve honored our flag all that time and

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis last week defended the president’s informal discussion with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a G-20 summit dinner earlier this month, which critics framed as a “secret” second meeting with the world leader on the sidelines. “I’ve been to hundreds of these dinners, ladies and gentlemen. And you just walk around talking to people. You don’t want to be bored sitting there, eating your pate de foie gras,” he said. “Look, I’m not trying to make fun of you guys in the press.

America´s Media Meltdown

Between 2008 and 2016, the media were unapologetic about their adoration of President Barack Obama. Now, they are energized by their thorough loathing of President Donald Trump. In tragic fashion, the hubris of deifying Obama has now come full circle to the nemesis of demonizing Trump. The common denominator of the two extremes is the abandonment of disinterested reporting. When Obama announced his candidacy for president in 2007, the media relinquished pretenses of objectivity. The progressive Obama, who had the most partisan record in the U.S. Senate after less than four years in office, appeared to progressive journalists to have

President Trump threatened to fire his Health and Human Services secretary, Dr. Tom Price, during a speech to the Boy Scouts, which he promised wouldn´t be political and would be about finding personal success. Trump pulled Price onstage, saying that he ´lives the Scout oath´ by keeping ´millions of Americans strong and healthy´ in his role, before bringing up an important Senate Obamacare repeal vote tomorrow, and suggesting it would be the cabinet member´s head that would roll if Congressional Republicans came up short. ´By the way, are you going to get the votes?´ Trump asked Price. ´He better get

Less than a week after announcing he has brain cancer, Sen. John McCain will return to the Senate as Republicans prepare to vote on Obamacare repeal and replacement. The 80-year-old Arizona senator will be back on Capitol Hill Tuesday. “Senator McCain looks forward to returning to the United States Senate tomorrow to continue working on important legislation, including health care reform, the National Defense Authorization Act, and new sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea,” McCain’s office said in a statement released Monday night.

The D.C. rumor-mill is busy with chatter over whether AG Sessions will be fired and who will take his place after The New York Times published an interview with President Trump saying he would not have selected Jeff Sessions to be AG had he known the former Senator would have recused himself from the Russia probe. Axios reported earlier that President Trump is discussing a move to replace AG Sessions with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani has since dismissed this report.

Jordan´s military released security camera footage Monday of a shooting in which a Jordanian soldier killed three U.S. military trainers at an air base in the kingdom. The video had previously been shown to the families of the U.S. Army Green Berets by U.S. law enforcement but had not been made public until Monday. The soldiers were killed on November 4, when their convoy came under fire at the entrance to the al-Jafr base in southern Jordan. A Jordanian military court sentenced the soldier, 1st Sgt.

On Monday, Fox News contributor and former Rep.

According the June Federal Election Commission report, in addition to adding to their growing debt, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) fell behind the Republican National Committee (RNC) in monthly fundraising. Adding on to their recent pattern of historically low fundraising efforts, the DNC raised $5.5 million in the month of June, almost $8 million less than the $13.5 million raised by the RNC. After spending $5.7 million in the month of June, the DNC has $7.5 million on hand compared to the RNC, who spent $10.6 million in June and has $44.7 million on hand. The DNC, which is prepping

Rudy Giuliani said Monday afternoon he’s not trying to get Jeff Sessions’ job — and that the attorney general made the right decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. “I thought it was the correct decision under the Justice Department regulations,” the former mayor told The Post. “I thought he consulted with the ethics counsel and he made the right decision. I have told the president that.” Giuliani’s comments contradict a report Monday morning claiming President Trump is considering dumping Sessions and replacing him with the former Big Apple mayor — and depart from Trump’s own condemnation of Sessions’

Colin Kaepernick is an NFL pariah. His stand for social justice by taking a knee during the national anthem last season as a member of the San Francisco 49ers has left him sitting on his couch as NFL training camps commence this week. His sideline satyagraha, designed to bring attention to civil rights violations and disparities in treatment from law enforcement in this country, makes him unemployable in a league that frowns upon individuality and values compliance and conformity from its players. Players for all 32 teams will have reported for camp by end of this week. It doesn’t look

Schumer told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week Sunday morning that gas prices can only go up, citing “huge companies buying up other big companies” as the cause of rising gas prices. “Gas prices are sticky — you know, when the domestic price goes, uh, when the, uh, price for oil goes up on the markets, it goes right up but it never goes down,” Schumer said. “How the heck did we let Exxon and Mobil

When many middle-aged people think back to their childhood, they remember roaming the streets with their friends during long, hot summers. Our parents threw us out the door in the morning and instructed us not to come back until dinnertime. Often in charge of younger siblings, we strayed further than we should have, got into trouble and, by the end of the summer, had a collection of triumphs, scars and memories for life. But surely such memories are just nostalgia? The bit about the sun always shining probably is. Yet one thing is certain – the level of parental involvement

Fuming and furious at the thought that Trump could end former President Barack Obama’s executive amnesties and impact 1.2 million who did not have “papers,” Gutierrez tore into Trump at Chicago’s Lincoln United Methodist Church, vowing to “resist” Trump non-violently with “everything possible.” Gutierrez emphasized that Trump—and not illegal immigrants—is the real criminal. “For me, the major criminal that exists in the United
