Thug charged with hate crime for vandalizing pro-Trump mayor's home

I hate Illinois antifas.

The mayor of Bolingbrook, which is a far-southwest suburb of Chicago, is a supporter of President Donald J. Trump. The suspect is charged with spray-painting anarchist logos--presumably the circle-A symbol--and swastikas on her mayor's home. My guess is she didn't vote for him--the accused probably didn't vote at all.

From ABC 7 Chicago:
Rachel M. Tuszynski, 30, of the 200-block of Coral Court in southwest suburban Bolingbrook, confessed to vandalizing Mayor Roger Claar's home, driveway and the public sidewalk with spray paint, police said.

Officers discovered the damage around 7 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators quickly identified the suspect and arrested her later the same day, police said.

Tuszynski was charged with a hate crime, two counts of threatening a public official, criminal damage to property, criminal damage to government-supported property and criminal defacement of public property, all felonies. She was also charged with criminal defacement and theft, both misdemeanors.
Now Bolingbrook has someone else to be ashamed of besides wife-killing cop Drew Peterson.

(PragerU Video) Why Self-Esteem Is Self-Defeating

"See, that's the whole point of self esteem," author and columnist Matt Walsh says in this PragerU video, "to be proud of yourself even when there is no reason to be proud of yourself."

Or to paraphrase Syndrome in The Indredibles, "If everyone is super then no one is."

Obama UN ambassador was on "unmasking" binge in 2016

The lamestream media, the Washington Compost, the New York Slimes, and the Clinton News Network is ignoring this disturbing story.

From Fox News:
Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 – and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News.

Two sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said the requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking, exceeded 260 last year. One source indicated this occurred in the final days of the Obama White House.

The details emerged ahead of an expected appearance by Power next month on Capitol Hill. She is one of several Obama administration officials facing congressional scrutiny for their role in seeking the identities of Trump associates in intelligence reports – but the interest in her actions is particularly high.

(Video) Trump issues executive order against North Korea

There is fabulous news today. President Donald J. Trump issued an executive order "against this criminal rogue regime" and it targets individuals and companies that choose to work with the Norks.

Even better, the Chinese central bank is encouraging other ChiComm banks to abstain from engaging with North Koreans.

John Roberts of Fox News has more.

Despite high murder rate, onerous taxes, and declining population, Chicago activist claims "soul of city" at stake with Obama library

Abandoned home on
the South Side
Chicago has much deeper problems than the handing out of any goodies in regards to the Barack Obama Presidential Library construction project on the South Side. As I've mentioned many times before, Chicago suffers more murders than New York and Los Angeles--combined. Taxes keep climbing, for instance, Chicagoans pay the nation's highest sales tax rate. Not surprisingly, Chicago is the only major American city losing population.

But what about the library?

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
About 300 residents packed a South Side auditorium Wednesday night to demand that the promise of jobs, economic development and other benefits of the Obama presidential library center be put in writing.

The activists and residents want a community benefits agreement, something many say will protect the neighborhoods and people the center may displace.

"The soul of our city is at stake," said Jay Travis, of the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization. “Will Chicago be home to all people regardless of race and income or will we sit back and watch city government systematically remove us?"
As I noted above, people are removing themselves already.

(PragerU) Are Some Cultures Better than Others?

In his speech in July in Warsaw, President Donald J. Trump spoke proudly of western civilization.
We write symphonies. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers. We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression.
And in this latest PragerU video, Dinesh D'Souza asks, "Are some cultures better than others?"

Yes.

Thirteen of the retailers reported declines of more than 30 percent, and five said that their beverage sales have declined by 40 percent or more with the highest reported at 47 percent.
