Chicago Mayor Goes Full Jussie Smollett, Blames ‘Right-Wing Extremism’ for City’s Migrant Crisis: ‘They’re Still Mad That a Black Man Is Free in This Country’

Everybody remembers the crazy storyline from January 2019: In the wee hours of a Tuesday morning in Chicago, actor Jussie Smollett claimed he was returning from a trip to a Subway sandwich shop when he was attacked by two white men wearing “Make America Great Again” caps, who shouted racist and homophobic slurs, poured bleach […]

With ‘Friends’ Like This …

What kind of car do you drive? What are your monthly car payments? Excuse me for asking, but one fact that caught my eye in this story out of Chicago was that Arsenio Cooper was driving a Jaguar SUV. A quick Google search informed me that a used 2020 Jaguar SUV can be had for […]

The Ontological Error of ‘Gun Violence’

Gloria: “Daddy, did you know that sixty-five percent of the people murdered in this country in the last ten years were killed by handguns?” Archie Bunker: “Would it make you feel any better, little girl, if they was pushed out of windows?” That exchange from a 1972 episode of All in the Family always comes […]

But the runoff election proves Chicago is irredeemably lost: The residents of the Windy City were offered a choice between someone who wanted to rebuild the Chicago PD and bring […]

Good-Bye, Mayor Frogface! Lightfoot Places Third in Chicago Reelection Bid

The pioneering Amphibian-American got less than 20% of the vote in her effort to win another four years in office to wreck Chicago: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lost her bid for re-election Tuesday, ending her historic run as the city’s first Black woman and first openly gay person to serve in the position.

‘A Routine Traffic Stop’

Eau Claire, Wisconsin, is more than 300 miles from Chicago, and it’s almost a five-hour drive — if you’re doing the speed limit, that is. On the other hand, if you’re doing 110 mph in a late-model Dodge Charger, the trip won’t take nearly as long. Except, of course, if you get pulled over by […]
