Serious misstep: Arizona Republic deals with cancellations and threats over Hillary endorsement

Monument Valley, Arizona
In its pathetic endorsement of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Arizona Republic, so-called conservative paper, which is owned by left-leaning Gannett, it brushed off her felonious behavior as "serious missteps."

Sure it briefly mentioned the email scandal and the Clinton Foundation slush fund, although it didn't refer to is as a slush fund.

But the AZ Republic left out of its endorsement explanation was Clinton's complicity in the Whitewater Scandal and the mysterious appearance of her law firm's records regarding that scandal mysteriously appearing in the White House living quarters, the Benghazi murders and the "it was the video" lie, Travelgate, the destruction of Blackberries and the wiping of hard drives  by her technical staff, her mishandling of classified information and lying about it--felonies, by the way, and blaming her husband's affair with Monica Lewinsky as part of a "vast right-wing conspiracy."

The paper has received "threats," but won't specify what kind.

But is also has received subscription cancellations.


It's time to Make America Great Again--vote for Donald J. Trump.

The dishonest mainstream media is obsessed with making Donald Trump look bad, but looks the other way in regards to the most dishonest person ever to seek the presidency, Hillary Clinton.

Chiraq: 2 dead in separate Eisenhower Expressway shootings

Eisenhower Expressway
Chicago's Eisenhower Expressway on the West Side passes through the worse neighborhoods in the city. Even so, it's still a shock to learn that that there were too fatal shoots on the Ike just hours apart. At around 5:30am aspiring rapper Johnathon Ortiz was gunned down in his SUV near Laramie. He was later pronounced dead at a West Side hospital. His girlfriend was wounded but she is expected to recover.

About seven hours later and less than a mile away from the site of the Ortiz murder, Devon Almon was shot to death on the expressway near Central, he was declared dead at a suburban hospital. A male passenger was wounded in the same attack.

Illinois State Police say that there have been 41 expressway shootings in Chiraq in 2016.

During Monday's presidential debate, Donald Trump said about urban violence, "You walk down the street, you get shot. In Chicago, they’ve had thousands of shootings, thousands since Jan. 1. Thousands of shootings. And I say, where is this? Is this is a war-torn country? What are we doing?"

What are we doing?

(Video) Gold Star mother confronts Obama on his refusal to say "radical Islam"

In what was supposed to be a simple goodbye to the troops, President Obama was asked by a Gold Star mother, Tina Houchins, why he refuses use the words "radical Islam" to describe our terror enemies.

Obama told Houchins, whose 19-year-old son was killed by radical Islamic terrorists in Baghdad, that this issue is "sort of manufactured."

15 of 19: Congress overrides Obama veto, 9/11 families can sue Saudi Arabia

9/11 memorial, Des Plaines, Illinois
Never forget: 15 of 19 of the 9/11 killers were from Saudi Arabia.

From USA Today:
The House and Senate voted Wednesday to reject President Obama's veto of legislation allowing lawsuits against foreign sponsors of terrorism — the first successful override of a presidential veto since Obama took office.

The president had vetoed the legislation Friday because he said the bill — known as the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA — would infringe on the president’s ability to conduct foreign policy. It was the 12th veto of his presidency.

But after an intense push by 9/11 survivors and families of victims who want to sue Saudi Arabia based on claims the country played a role in the 2001 terror attacks, even Obama's Democratic allies on Capitol Hill voted to override his veto.

The House voted 348-77, well above the two-thirds majority needed. The final vote tally in the Senate was 97-1. Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., cast the lone dissenting vote.

"Fat-shamed" woman brought up by Clinton at debate accused of threatening to kill judge

Of course if you were unfortunate enough to have Hillary Clinton's moral--perhaps she has none at all--these accusations would not be a big deal.

From the Daily Mail:
Donald Trump went after 'Miss Piggy' Alicia Machado on Wednesday, and this time it wasn't about her weight – as the billionaire brought up an incident where the former Miss Universe allegedly threatened to kill a Venezuelan judge.

Trump was asked about Machado repeatedly during an appearance with host Bill O'Reilly on Fox News Wedesday night before a campaign rally in Wisconsin, just two days after he referenced her weight gain after Hillary Clinton brought up the fat shaming during a presidential debate.
As reported this week, Venezuelan judge Maximiliano Fuenmayor in 1998 publicly accused Machado of threatening to kill him after he charged her then-boyfriend Juan Rodriguez Reggeti with attempted murder. Machado was accused of being the getaway driver.

Chicago "monument to corruption," Morgan Finley, died last week

Here's more proof that only the good die young.

Former Clerk of the Cook County Circuit Court Morgan Finley, a Chicago Democrat, was called "a monument to corruption" by a judge, He died last week at 91.

Chicago and Illinois' corrupt nature didn't spring out of nowhere.

Mayor Richard J. Daley, the first Mayor Daley, was a mentor for Finley, who told him. "Never take a nickel. Just hand 'em your insurance card." Finley didn't stick with legal graft--he ignored Daley's advice.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Finley was the highest of 16 officials — including four aldermen — swept up in the Operation Incubator sting, where federal “moles” offered bribe money to politicians.

On Dec. 4, 1985, he was being served a stone crab lunch at Lake Point Tower by his friend, Michael Raymond, who handed a wad of money to Finley. Raymond, speaking clearly, for the benefit of the hidden FBI microphones, told Finley, "I got you the rest of the $25,000."

"For me?" Finley said, pocketing the cash.

At the trial, Assistant U.S. attorney Ira Raphaelson argued that Finley was "a hypocrite, a two-faced man, a man who had a dark side to his life, a man who sold his office."
Finley's legacy survives. Too bad.

Close it now: Chicago State University has just 86 freshmen

Chicago State University is nothing but a jobs program, the college on occasion properly educates someone. Only 11 percent of its students graduate in six years.

Amazingly, Chicago State is a NCAA Division I sports school.

This college needs to close. Illinois has many other state universities that offer far better educational opportunities.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Chicago State University — still reeling from a scandal in which its president got $600,000 in severance to leave the South Side school after only nine months on the job — has only 86 total students in its freshman class this fall.

That's less than a tenth of the size of its freshman class five years ago, when 1,058 first-year students enrolled, university figures show. And the 86 freshmen now on campus include part-time and full-time students, a university spokeswoman said.

Even with 211 students transferring in, the public university;s total enrollment has dropped to 3,578 — 2,352 of them undergrads, and 1,226 in graduate programs.

The number of students attending the school at 95th and King Drive has been dwindling for years. Two years ago, the school had 5,211 students and five years ago it had 6,882 students.
Essentially-bankrupt Illinois needs to contract--just as its population is contracting. CSU is a great place to start the slashing.

Throwing taxpayer money away at Chicago State was a longtime project of former Illinois state Senate president Emil Jones, Jr. who was a mentor for Barack Obama. There's an arena at CSU, the Emil and Patricia A. Jones Convocation Center, which seats up to 6,000--currently the school has only 3,600 students.
