Budding Hollywood actresses do not have to rely on semi-naked fat dudes in expensive hotels for acting tips. Not anymore. Real-life examples of real-life emotions such as despair, abandonment, anguish, and betrayal are easy to find if you know where to look – e.g., local stories of black-on-white violence. Let´s start with some backstory in Chicago. During last year´s election for the Chicago version of district attorney, Kim Foxx was not hiding anything. With loads of cash from George Soros and lots of support from Black Lives Matter, she bragged about how, under her watch, she was going to stop over-policing, halt
Some areas of the country have returned to the wild west where self defense and justice must be meeted out by the victim or potential victim. I have started to carry all of the time. If I can´t carry it there, I don´t go there. It is the only way this is going to stop. By the way, if a place puts up a no weapons sign, they should be held accountable to make sure that no one enters with a weapon.
The people of Baltimore and Chicago feel very alone (both black and white), but the country is watching and learning - the Democrats support and even encourage the 13% of the population that causes 70% of the crime.
The "let´s not arrest the black people committing all the crimes" policy is not new at all. The infamous C. Jack Ellis, ex- mayor of Macon, Georgia (1999-2007), had the same policy. Like Chicago, there is a black on black shooting almost everyday. Sometimes two or three.
Since Colin mentioned carjackings: Carjackings are rare in my state as we have extended the ´Castle Doctrine´ to the confines of one´s automobile. The same rules of engagement apply to ones home as well as auto. Bad guy forcibly entering = right to defend oneself with lethal means. This does wonders in making a would-be carjacker pause to consider the consequences.
One of the last carjackings done by the two arrested in the ABC 7 video mentioned in he article happened to the whiteson, and his white buddy, of one of my best friends.
It was terrifying for them. They not only took the car, they robbed them, one had a gun to their head, the other the chest. The one with the gun to the head actually pulled the trigger but either the gun was not loaded, or it jammed.
Now, these two big strong thirty-somethings are having a terrible time dealing with it all.
The two arrested are 18 and 19 so maybe, something they will go to jail. But then again gun they used may not have been loaded so I suppose they could claim that it was just good old carjacking fun.
I wish that we could take back our society from all of the "social engineering" Kim Foxx´s of the world and restore sanity.
The "open season" in Baltimore had its genesis in the "civil unrest" that was perpetrated by the city, state and Malik Shabazz. What was supposed to be a controlled demonstration blew up in the faces of Mayor Rawlings-Blake, States Attorney Moseby, and Governor Hogan, who sent unprepared and ill-equipped State Troopers into the city to "help" so Larry could be seen being benevolent to the "Jewel of Maryland". With Freddie Gray the cops have generally gone Galt. And now we have a (black) homicide detective murdered on the job while approaching a suspicious character.
It´s an absolute mess, and the City is using Section 8 vouchers to send this out to the suburbs.
The senseless venom against blacks by so many posters on this thread is disgusting. You place the blame on the whole, not allowing for the source of black violence - Progressive Democratic doctrine. Until the ´Great Society´ blacks had made consistent gains in American society. This level of violence didn´t exist until the progressives herded poorer blacks into modern plantations, aka public housing. The subsidizing of single parenthood led to a huge swing in unwed births - in black and white communities. But when you combine public housing, government checks, and subsidies for reproduction without responsibility, the current situation is what we get.And by we, I mean everyone - black, brown, and white.
As long as we continue to allow progressives to make the policy, we will continue to see the growth of anarchy in Progressive Democrat ran, impoverished cities. I have to tell you, that the black folks I know are as sickened by the behavior in the cities as anyone else. It is a problem so pervasive they cannot understand why people continue to live that way.
So, rather than invoke invective against an entire race of people, how about something constructive, like convincing people not to vote for dopey progressives who cannot offer solutions that work, rather than street chants and hating the rich.
Any perceived "venom against Blacks" on this thread is not senseless. Black on Black crime is even worse than Black on White crime.
I can assure anyone who makes that claim that none of the posters on this thread doesn´t get it.
No one on here doesn´t know that 50+ years of Progressive Doctrine led us to this point. Whom do you think got Trump elected to at least begin to stem the tide of Progressive´s destruction of this country? Who´s holding RINO´s accountable and effectively throwing them out of office?
No one who posts on Lucianne does not understand, and no one condemns an entire race for all crime. Whatever the reason, what is happening today in our cities is very real and NO innocent person is safe.
If well-meaning blacks wanted to solve the problem of their dysfunctional "brothers," they should start by admitting that there´s problem instead of considering it "airing dirty linen to outsiders" and vilifying any black who has the nerve to talk about it. Long before Bill Cosby was accused of sexual harassment, he was viciously attacked for talking about ghetto thugs.
Something very strange, and possibly extremely significant, happened yesterday, with no explanation and little notice from the media. But two different writers for the same DC-insider publication rushed to be the first to note this barely-noticed move, suggesting that they know something big is happening. To my deep sorrow, the skills of a Kremlinologist – the people who specialized in interpreting small signs, such as who stood next to whom reviewing military parades in Red Square to figure out the real power structure within the secretive upper ranks of the USSR – are necessary to figure out what is going
When the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage was not only legal but mandated by the Constitution, the majority were declaring that the Constitution meant whatever the majority of the Supreme Court wanted it to mean. (snip) the fundamental principle defined by the Court in its ruling on gay “marriage”, Obergefell, clearly and unambiguously supports the rights of bakers, photographers, etc. to refuse to support gay “weddings.” The Court has declared that the liberties protected by the Due Process Clause include “intimate choices that define personal identity and belief.” But saying that one is glad to serve gays but not willing
Once again, President Trump proves that he is no ordinary politician, and exposes the nature of the DC Swamp. Every recent president has promised to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as a candidate, only to fail to deliver. But not President Trump! He alone has the guts and the honesty to start to deliver. (snip) So the Kabuki will unfold in “the Arab street,” but the intransigent Palestinians for the first time are discovering that intransigence makes things worse for them. They will pay a price now. And the unspoken message is that if they don’t
James Comey ´s subconscious is manifesting itself in uncomfortable nonverbal truth-telling, while his conscious mind takes him out on a limb that cannot sustain his weight. (snip) A couple of days ago James Comey posted one of the weirdest tweets in recent memory to come from a DC player, featuring a truly remarkable graphic that seems straight from his subconscious: [tweet] Every single FBI agent is pictured with his/her back turned toward the camera (and Comey). What is the nonverbal message here? That a lot of butt-picturing, almost pervy, if you think about it. But I doubt Comey is a
Another progressive delusion was exposed yesterday as NFL owners discovered that their attempt to bribe angry black players into behaving themselves flopped as the nation watched. Despite promises to donate almost $90 million to ‘social justice’ causes (which seem to be charities ostensibly benefitting African-Americans) if players would only respect the National Anthem the way their colleagues in other major league sports do, various NFL players demonstrated their contempt during games. (snip) So, will the NFL owners and Roger Gooddell develop the intestinal fortitude to announce something on the order of: “OK, you had your chance! The deal is off,
The current sex crimes dragnet sweeping across the country, pulling in celebrities, media millionaires, and politicians, has yet to reel in a high profile professor from the hallowed halls of academia Will Bill Ayers be the first? In a 2006 Frontpagemag article entitled "Remembering a Sixties Terrorist," a woman named Donna Ron recounted what she described as "the defining event of my life." As a sophomore at the University of Michigan in 1965, Ron was caught up in the antiwar movement when she met and dated Ayers. Two months after meeting Ayers, Ron alleges he locked her in his apartment and told her
Americans generally know nothing about our European "allies" and the nefarious plans they may occasionally hatch against us. But people familiar with history know how the British Foreign Office was a primary mover in getting the United States into World War I. (snip) Among the many flaws in this story is Christopher Steele, nominally a "former" GCHQ spy, who was hired to do the deed. But when it comes to keeping the Brits informed of major developments in its biggest ally, the United States, there are no "former" spies. If Steele was hired by the DNC to come up with
People lost money thanks to Brian Ross moving the market with his false reporting. He’s been suspended, but will we see lawsuits against him and ABC on behalf of investors who lost money? Update: as this was being published, President Trump just recommended they do so (snip) now that we have established that the Mueller investigation can move markets, Robert Mueller should require all of his staff to put their stock holdings (including retirement funds) into blind trusts. If any of them were so foolish as to sell shares of anything right before an indictment of, say, Jared Kushner, they
Cue sustained hysteria among Trump-haters in the media and everywhere else. Stay tuned for demands for Trump’s impeachment, and cries of treason. Just a short time ago, Michael Flynn left a federal courthouse after cutting a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. (snip) During the transition, then-President Obama famously said, “There’s only one president.” This may be what is seized upon to demand Trump’s impeachment and indictment for the Logan Act. Nobody ever has been prosecuted for violating it, much less convicted. But Mueller conceivably could do so.
The Congressional Budget Office [CBO] is back at it again, now providing class warfare material to opponents of tax reform. (snip) the CBO made a new argument, that the provision in the Senate bill that would repeal the mandate to purchase health insurance will mean that 13 million people will lose coverage. Think about this one for a moment. The mandate to purchase health insurance is a tax (according to the Supreme Court) that will be paid for failure to have coverage. The mandate does not require one to purchase coverage, through signing up on the exchanges or signing up for
It is startling the way that the fiercest enemies of President Trump often end up hoisted on their own petards. Whether you call it coincidence, karma, or cosmic justice, NBC News, the very network that leaked the Billy Bush tape (and fired the Bush family scion shortly after), turns out to have harbored for many years a sexual assaulter who was earning the company huge amounts of money. Not just talk, but alleged rape in one instance. (snip) the President of NBC News, Andrew Lack has cast himself in the role of Sergeant Schutz, the comic butt of humor on
While most decent Americans are lamenting the fact that our court system failed Kate Steinle and her family, I can’t help but think of people like George Soros and organizations like the Center for American Progress … how large is our fight and how determined are our foes! It may seem like a far-fetched connection, but it’s not. Kate Steinle’s death and the ensuing, nauseating injustice of her trial verdict are part of a much larger picture: the globalist push for open borders and mass immigration bent on destabilizing the West. Soros is using his money and influence to make sure
A number of US athletes have spoken out against Donald Trump during his presidency -- and skier Lindsey Vonn has become the latest to have her say. Targeting Olympic gold at February´s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she spoke passionately about what it means to compete for the US ski team. "Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president," Vonn told CNN´s Alpine Edge. The 33-year-old Vonn is getting ready for the final act of a long and illustrious career. As well as competing for a second Olympic gold
Labelling millennials ´snowflakes´ is damaging their mental health, research claims. The controversial term is now fashionable to use when describing young adults who are seen as taking offence easily and emotionally vulnerable. Almost three quarters of 16-24 year olds surveyed believe the moniker is unfair and are adamant it could negatively affect their mental health.
Rumors that the Republican National Committee was built on the site of an ancient moron burial ground gained new credence this week when it confirmed that it was renewing its support for Alabama´s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. I shouldn’t joke, because the worst thing about the RNC’s decision isn’t the stupidity — though the stupidity is real, and spectacular — but the moral obscenity. Last month, the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled out of their joint fundraising agreements because Moore had been credibly accused by several women of having preyed upon them when they were teenagers,
On Tuesday night, Barack Obama did the inevitable when speaking at the Economic Club of Chicago: he dropped the worn out “Trump is Hitler” comparison for everyone’s enjoyment. Obama spent a lot of time talking about being a “citizen of the world,” according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The former president boasted about saving “a million lives” thanks to his efforts in the Ebola outbreak in Africa. (Snip) The danger is "grow(ing) complacent," Obama said. "We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly." That´s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy
DEVELOPING: Calling it “the worst day of his political life,” Sen. Al Franken said Thursday he will resign from the U.S. Senate following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him. Minnesota Public Radio reported late Wednesday he would resign, though Franken’s office pushed back saying it wasn’t a done deal yet. It will be up to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a successor. (Snip) Multiple sources reported that the likely candidate could be Democratic Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, a close ally of Franken. Any successor, if he steps down, would serve until a special election is held in
WASHINGTON — John Conyers III, who was endorsed by his father on Tuesday to succeed him in the House, was arrested in February after his girlfriend suffered knife cuts during an argument. Mr. Conyers, in an interview Wednesday, tried to head off a possibly disqualifying scandal just a day after his father resigned from Congress amid multiplying allegations of sexual harassment. As issues of sexual harassment and abuse roil Washington, any violent altercation against a woman could doom his effort to take the seat that his father held since 1965. The younger Mr. Conyers said that the couple began arguing around 3
Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) former presidential campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said early Thursday that President Trump was "clearly slurring his words" during an announcement that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, adding that "the impairment is chilling." "I don’t know the cause of it, but when you combine it with [Sen.] Bob Corker’s critique that the president of the United States is unstable, that he’s dangerous, when you look at the private comments that are made by members of Congress around his stability, you look at his actions in recent weeks," said Schmidt, who is also an
How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was
We already know Steve Bannon believes that politics is war. But during the course of his speech at an Alabama rally for Roy Moore this week, he gave the country an ugly lesson in what scorched-earth political warfare really entails. (Snip)Still, despite all the fun he’s having attacking his favorite targets and boosting Moore, Bannon has to be aware that he isn’t winning his war on McConnell. Try as he might to deny it, he knows McConnell is now more important to Trump than the Breitbart attack machine is. It was McConnell’s successful maneuvering and negotiating that gave Trump his
Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.” The stock market has gained about 30 percent in value since
Sen. Al Franken took a quick glance up at a jam-packed Senate press gallery as he entered the chamber Thursday, preparing to ask Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan, who was presiding over the chamber, to allow him to make the speech that would end his political career. A senator who has long dodged questions from reporters, he finally had one for them. "Ready?" And with that, Franken, D-Minn., set out on his farewell address to the Senate — a 12-minute speech where he continued to proclaim his innocence against eight women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.
Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is refusing to attend the Thursday opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights museum since President Donald Trump will be there. Lewis, who played a crucial role in ushering in civil rights for black Americans, will not be speaking at the opening because Trump’s presence is an insult to the men and women represented in the museum, Time reported. (Snip) The ceremony is planned for Saturday to celebrate the 200-year anniversary of Mississippi entering the union. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant extended an invitation to the president to attend, sparking a wave of outrage from various
