Rahm Emanuel Pledges $250,000 for Chicago Gun Buyback Programs

Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel is pledging $250,000 for various gun buyback programs throughout the city. If you actually have a good, functioning firearm, you probably won’t turn it in, no matter how much money they’re offering – well, unless they offer you more than what you paid for it. That way, you can take the money and buy a better gun. But that’s not likely to happen. In one of Boston’s recent gun buybacks, they offered either $100 or $200, depending on the quality and condition Read more […]

Democrat Disaster! Chicago Schools Fire 1,400 Workers to Fund Pensions!

About 1,400 Chicago public school teachers and staff are expected to lose their jobs in order to finance a pension debt of $634 million, the city announced Wednesday. The layoffs are part of an aggressive $200 million budget cut to help finance the pension payment, which is required of Chicago Public Schools by Illinois law. The rest of the pension payment is coming from heavy borrowing, as the district already has a massive $1.1 billion budget deficit. In announcing the layoffs, Mayor Read more […]

Rahm Emanuel Calls for More Gun Control Amid Record Weekend Slayings

It’s true that Illinois has loosened some of their most draconian gun laws, but that doesn’t mean that all of a sudden, all law-abiding citizens there now carry a gun. It’s still difficult to obtain a permit and buy a gun. And Chicago is still a dangerous place to be. Predictably, following Memorial Day weekend’s slew of violence manifested in 12 deaths and 43 injured people, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is calling for yet more controls on guns. Breitbart reported: That’s right — gun control Read more […]

Obama Calls Himself America’s First “Jewish President”

President Obama was speaking to a large Jewish crowd in Washington, D.C. at a Jewish American Heritage month celebration when he uttered some pretty interesting words. Most of all, I want to thank the entire congregation of Adas Israel for having me here today. Earlier this week, I was actually interviewed by one of your members, Jeff Goldberg. Jeff reminded me he once called me the first Jewish president. Now, since some people still seem to be wondering about my faith, I should make clear Read more […]

Why I Love Rahm: Chicago to Video-Record Gun Sales–by the Psychotic Liberal

Obama’s Chicago – Blacks Killing Blacks

In 2008, Barack Obama promised blacks that he would make life better for them if he was elected. He promised to create more jobs for blacks, especially black teens and help them in other ways to lower the crime rates and give them more opportunities to improve their lives. The way Obama shows favoritism to his friends and financial supporters along with Hispanics, you would expect him to have worked extra hard to do something to help Chicago, his political hometown. With Chicago’s mayor being Read more […]

Rahm Emanuel Makes Paper Thin Arguments–Half Of Voters Agree

In an Op-Ed for the Washington Post on Friday, Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago makes many claims. In his editorial, Emanuel is either acting ignorantly or deceitfully. Now, generally I would be willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt, but since it’s Rahm Emanuel, I won’t. According to Emanuel: “President Obama and the Democratic Party earned the support of key groups — young people, single women, Latinos, African Americans, auto workers in the Rust Belt and millions of other middle-class Read more […]

Illinois To Give Driver’s Licenses To Illegal Aliens

Chicago Schools a Microcosm of Obama’s Next Term

If you want to know what an Obama second term will be like, all you have to do is look at the Chicago school strike: Out-of-control state workers who are demanding more money when the graduation rate is about 60 percent and we are in a deep recession. Here’s what Rahm Emanuel said: “For the first time on record, Chicago Public Schools have achieved higher than a 60 percent graduation rate.” To be exact, it was 60.6 percent, and for this there was a celebration. Keep in mind that this is a Read more […]

Obama’s Hometown Teachers Ditch the Kids

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanual’s decision not to given in to a 19 percent increase in teacher compensation means no first day of school for one of the largest school districts in America as Chicago’s Teachers go on strike. What say you Mr. President? Over 400 thousand kids kicked to the curb (in Chicago that could be a death sentence) in attempt to extort more pay and benefits for Chicago’s alleged underpaid teachers. According to some reports, Chicago teachers earn an average of 76K (without Read more […]
