From Roger L. Simon: Feinstein, Strzok, and the Sinister Russia Probe

Roger L. Simon of Pajama Media adds his two yuan to the Dianne Frankenfeinstein spy scandal.
One of the salient facts to remember in the wake of the firing (finally!) of Peter Strzok is that the man was the chief of the Counterespionage Section of the FBI. That means the man in charge of counterespionage for the Unites States of America was conducting an extramarital affair with another important Justice Department employee via text messages that could easily have been hacked by a high school student.

Roll that around in your mind for a moment. Can you think of anything dumber in the intelligence world? You don't have to have read any of a dozen John le Carré novels to understand how foolhardy it was, how it made Strzok subject to all sorts of skullduggery from foreign powers. No wonder it took them so long to fire him. There must have been a lot to investigate besides his ridiculously biased and jejune politics.

Now roll back five years to when it was discovered that Dianne Feinstein's chauffeur of twenty years (!) was a spy for the People's Republic of China. (Well, five years for Dianne. The rest of us found out only last week.

How was it possible the then-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee was under such intimate covert surveillance by China for decades? Where was our counterespionage on that one? Not doing a lot of countering.

Two people were shot to death on Thursday in Chicago. One of the deaths, on the Far South Side, involved four break breaking into the home of a 43-year-old man, killing him. The other happened when three men approached a man on the South Side and opening fire.

The South Side also saw some non-fatal shootings, as did the West and Northwest Sides.

First person charged from Chicago's 74 weekend shootings

Over seventy people were shot last weekend in Chicago, despite last Thursday's anti-violence protest that closed Lake Shore Drive

Today it was announced that the first person was charged for one of those shootings.

There were 74 shootings over the weekend, 12 of them were fatal.

One person charged.


From NBC Chicago:
A man has been charged with shooting another man Saturday afternoon in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side.

Rick Franklin, 27, was charged with one felony count each of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, aggravated discharge of a firearm and being an armed habitual criminal, according to a statement from Chicago police.

Franklin was “observed on video involved in a shooting” shortly before 3:30 p.m. in the 3900 block of West Madison, police said.

The victim, a 26-year-old man, was shot in the left foot and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, police said.

John Kass: Rahm can’t spin his way out of the Chicago street gang wars

Englewood in 2016
John Kass of the Chicago Tribune is right on the money in his Tuesday column. And the Democrats in Chicago have a dirty street gang secret that goes back more than a century. Just as Daniel Day-Lewis' "Bill the Butcher" had his feet in politics as well as the criminal world in Gangs of New York, so do Chicago's street gangs.

Rahm, Kass argues, won't be able to spin his way out of Chiraq bloodshed.

From Kass' column:
City Hall calls it “gun violence,” and media cooperates by calling it that, too. But calling it “gun violence” allows Chicago’s political class off the hook.

There are many guns in the suburbs. But the suburbs are not killing grounds. What’s going on in Chicago are street gang wars.

And Cook County’s one-party political class seems incapable of addressing it; from the prosecutors who don’t prosecute, to judges, to the police brass trying to keep their jobs, to Chicago aldermen.

Some aldermen are terrified of the street gangs, which have been intertwined with Chicago politics since the first thugs got out the vote on the first Election Day.

AP is wrong: Sharice Davids is not the first Native American US House nominee from Kansas

Charles Curtis
AP reporter John Hanna reports in a cloying article about yesterday's election victory by Sharice Davids, who Hanna says "shattered the mold for a congressional primary winner from ruby red Kansas," as she is now the "state’s first Native American and gay nominee for Congress."

Not quite.

According to his Twitter bio, Hanna has been an AP correspondent in Topeka, the capital of Kansas, for nearly twenty years. He doesn't know his Kansas history as Charles Curtis, who was vice president under Herbert Hoover, was a Native American. Curtis also served in the US Senate, and, wait for it, he was a member of the US House of Representative from Kansas. Curtis' father was white and according to Wikipedia, the Republican lawmaker was roughly 3/8 Native American.

Curtis was also the first vice president born west of the Mississippi River and only the Kansan to serve as the nation's VP.

"Indian Charlie" grew up on the Kaw Indian Reservation.

On the other hand, perhaps Hanna is reporting that Davids, a Democrat, is a two-fer, meaning that she is the first nominee from Kansas who is both gay and a Native American. If so, then he needs to learn to write clearly---that would make Davids the first gay (or lesbian) Native American nominee from Kansas.

It was 100 years ago today when the;Battle of Amien began in France in World War I.

Erich Ludendorff, a top German general, called it "the black day of the German Army."

Tanks were a major factor in the battle. Allied forces gained seven miles of territory, a massive amount of territory in a war where trench warfare was the norm.

It was also the beginning of the One Hundred Days Offensive, which ended with an Allied victory over the Central Powers.

From Real Clear Politics: President Trump, please help save Chicago.

Steve Cortes, a CNN contributor, wants President Donald Trump to rescue Chicago.

From Real Clear Politics:
Mr. President, children in a once-great American city cannot play in parks without fear and cannot attend schools where they can thrive. As a constitutionalist, I instinctively defer to federalism and prefer local control, but this situation spirals downward with such ferocity that federal intervention represents the only stabilizing remedy, especially in light of the cowardice of local leaders.

For the near term, our city needs military troops to guard streets in the most dangerous areas. Soldiers have historically been deployed after riots to achieve calm, and Chicago’s current riot is merely a slow-motion one. In addition, with the school year starting soon, a show of protective force – with many of the service members themselves black and brown – would assuage nervous parents. The president should also direct Attorney General Jeff Sessions to personally lead a task force located in Chicago to flood the city with assistance in the coming months, leveraging all the federal government’s powers of law enforcement. Longer term, we desperately need school choice and aggressive urban enterprise zones to encourage investment in the most blighted neighborhoods of the west and south sides.

In addition to protecting the precious lives of American citizens, such moves would also reap political gains. The Trump economic boom is already proving incredibly beneficial for minorities, sending black and Hispanic job markets to record highs. As a result, recent polling shows a surge of support among both black and Hispanic approval of President Trump. The burgeoning economic progress, combined with serious overtures to help the embattled minority communities of Chicago, would surely engender further political goodwill for Trump.

During Chicago's bloodiest weekend of 2018, organizer of Thursday's anti-violence protest threatened to disrupt O'Hare Airport

O'Hare Airport
Former Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy, now a candidate for mayor, rightly--it's a no-brainer, by the way--called Thursday's anti-violence protest that blocked Lake Shore Drive an illegal action.

The 300-400 cops on hand, obviously under pressure from above, served [only as babysitters for the 150 protesters who wreaked havoc during the afternoon rush hour.

One of the organizers of last week's leftist disruption, Gregory Livingston, looked towards his next one. He ironically issued  his threat during the most violent Chicago weekend of 2018.

From NBC Chicago on Friday:
Anti-violence protesters who blocked Lake Shore Drive are threatening to shut down access to O’Hare International Airport.

Rev. Gregory Livingston organized the Lake Shore Drive protest to ask Mayor Rahm Emanuel to help all of Chicago with gun violence.

"If the mayor doesn’t respond to the needs of his own citizens then we need to go and possibly disrupt airport traffic," Livingston said.
If Livingston follows through on his threat--he should be arrested and swiftly prosecuted.

Enough of this anarchy.

(Photos) Bo Boen Trail in summer

Usually when I go running your beloved Marathon Pundit has a set distance and a planned route in mind. On vacation I hang loose and my runs sometime take on a serendipitous nature.

As was last summer and just last month too when I stumbled across the Bo Boen Trail in St. Germain, Wisconsin, in the Northwoods.

The Bo Boen (pronounced bo-in) is a snowmobile and ATV trail in St. Germain, Wisconsin.

This sign is on the eastern part of the trail I ran on, near the Wisconsin River in Oneida County.

And there is the Wisconsin River.

Even in northern Wisconsin there isn't any snow in July. Summer is all-terrain vehicle season in the Northwoods. ATVs leave distinctive tracks. Snowmobiling has one advantage over ATV riding. If you stop while driving the first vehicle, mosquitoes are not a concern.

Young hemlocks and white pines.

That's it for my 2017 pics. On to the next year. And for now on we'll be in Vilas County.

Those are some very tall northern red oaks.

North of St. Germain there is a stupendously beautiful clearing, parts of it serve as the local compost dump.

Although its a Eurasian invader, Lotus corniculatus, commonly known as bird's-foot trefoil, is splendid meadow flower.

As is Chrysanthemum leucanthemum, the oxeye daisy.

Ah, there's an ATV. The northern Wisconsin soil is very sandy.

An old compost pile? What do you think it is?

Eat my dust.

Now we're off of the trail for a diversion. The Bo Boen is best-known for snowmobiling. Arguably the snowmobile, or snowmachine, was invented in Vilas County, Wisconsin, where St. Germain and another unincorporated village, Sayner, lie.

In Sayner is the Villas County Historical Museum. In front of it is a Wisconsin historical marker simply titled "Snowmobile."

It reads:
Wisconsinites experimented with over-snow vehicles before 1900, trying bicycles on runners with gripping fins, steam-propelled sleighs and later Model T Fords converted with rear tractor treads and skis in front. In the first races held near Three Lakes in 1926, 104 of these "snowbuggies" started.

Carl Eliason of Sayner developed the prototype of the modern snowmobile in 1924 when he mounted a small gasoline-powered marine engine on a long toboggan, steered with skis under the front and driven by a rear, single, endless track.

Patented in 1927, Eliason made 40 snowmobiles. Upon receiving an order for 200 from Finland, he sold his patent to the FWD Company of Clintonville. They made 300 for military use, then transferred the patent to a Canadian subsidiary.

There are 2½ million snowmobiles in North America now. Annual sales exceed $1 billion and result in 100,000 jobs. Used even above the Arctic Circle, they provide not only recreation, but mobility for utility repairment, forest rangers, game wardens, mail carriers, policemen, etc.
The Eliason name is still prominent in the Northwoods. Eliason Lumber and Hardware is in Sayner and there is an Eliason Realty of the North with offices in St. Germain and Eagle River.

One more ATV for you.

A row of hemlocks.

Do you love ferns? If so, then the Northwoods are for you!

Our journey has ended.

The name Bo Boen? Where does that come from? It's not named for a person, rather, according to an email from a representative of the Bo-Boen Snowmobile Club, it's believed to mean "winter fun" in the Ojibwe (Chippewa) language.

Post anti-violence march: 11 shot to death and at least 59 wounded over weekend

Lake Shore Drive blocked by 
Thursday evening leftist activists held an anti-violence march where they blocked Lake Shore Drive on the North Side of Chicago.

No one expected it to help stem the mayhem in the city, but man oh man, was the most recent weekend a bloody one. Things have gotten worse.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
A weekend of gun violence in Chicago left at least 11 people dead and 59 wounded.

Three people were shot Friday evening, 14 were shot Saturday, 47 were shot Sunday and six were shot early Monday, capping off the weekend, which began 5 p.m. Friday and ended 5 a.m. Monday.

The violence reached a peak Sunday, when 30 people were shot during a three-hour span between midnight and 3 a.m. Eight shooting incidents that morning had three or more victims. A single shooting in Gresham wounded eight people, including four teenage girls, as they stood in a courtyard.

The influx of trauma patients at Stroger Hospital was so large Sunday morning, visitors of shooting victims were kept from entering, leaving them to congregate outside near a parking lot.
UPDATE August 12: It appears the final number from the weekend was 12 dead and 74 wounded.

At least 40 shot today in Chicago so far--UPDATED

Blogger on site of his mother's old
home in Auburn-Gresham
Well, the anti-violence march that blocked Lake Shore Drive on Thursday predictably hasn't done much to curb gunplay in Chicago.

So far today, Sunday, at least 40 people have been shot, including 8 in a mass-shooting in Auburn-Gresham, the neighborhood of Father Michael Pfleger's church.

Perhaps an anti-violence rally will do some good there.

Of those shootings, as of this hour four of them are fatal.

UPDATE 5:45pm CDT: An earlier version of this post left out the link to the ABC 7 Chicago story about the shootings, which are now up to 42 for Sunday.

UPDATE 6:00pm CDT: Of those shootings, 25 of them occurred in just two-and-half-hours.

Latgale performers in the Latvian Song and Dance Festival marching in Riga

Every five years the Latvian Song and Dance Festival is held in Riga, the capital city of the middle Baltic State. Rightfully Wikipedia deems it "one of the largest amateur choral events in the world and an important event in Latvian culture and social life."

A parade is part of the festivities. Mrs. Marathon Pundit snapped this photograph of performers from the Latgale region.

Pictures from the Chicago anti-violence march that you won't see in the mainstream media

Your beloved Blogger Laureate of Illinois hit the streets for some good old-fashioned citizen journalism. This time I was on the North Side of Chicago to cover this afternoon's anti-violence march that briefly shut down all eight lanes of Lake Shore Drive during rush hour. The protest's size grew a little when it entered the Lakeview neighborhood, but  when the marchers entered Lake Shore Drive, according to Chicago Police estimates, there were only 150 protesters.

Let that sink in. Tens of thousands of drivers--and bus passengers--had their commutes ruined by. let's be real here, a handful of radicals. Of course the protesters didn't have a rally permit. And Chicago officials just let this mess happen. As they have in the past with similar rallies.

Chalk this up as another reason why Chicago is one of the few major cities with a declining population.

Did I say chalk? Surely these chalk messages scrawled on Lake Shore Drive will transform the gangbangers into peaceful Chicagoans.

Chicago parents: Do you know where your unionized teacher is?

Eight lanes of traffic unused. Thousands of evenings wrecked. All because of, let me remind you, 150 left-wing protesters.

In July the meddlesome priest, the Reverend Michael Pfleger, held a similar anti-violence protest that blocked all twelve lanes of the Dan Ryan Expressway on the South Side.

And do you know what? Chicagoans are still killing each other.

Perhaps a series of rallies in front of the homes of the leaders of the Vice Lords, the Latin Kings, and the Simon City Royals might be more effective. And I can assure you that these gangsters don't live on major expressways.

That poster, held by a someone wearing a shirt touting, that is, the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, reads, "A 6-year-old died because of ICE. A system that cages and tortures children is a system that must be overthrown."

I thought this was an anti-violence protest. Oh, a quick Google search will show that no six-year-old died in the custody of ICE--the commie told me it happened "a couple of days ago." And that widely-distributed photograph of a migrant child behind a cage was a staged event that was part of a Dallas protest. Allegedly a toddler, not a six-year-old, died after being released from ICE, but the agency denies the report.

It's fake news.

"Assata is welcome here." Well isn't that special. But Assata who? If it's Assata Olugbala Shakur, the former JoAnne Deborah Chesimard, then she is referring to a convicted cop killer--I thought this was an anti-violence march--who is an escaped prisoner living in Cuba under political asylum.

The communists in Cuba should cough up this murderer.

Shakur is on the FBI's list of most wanted terrorists.

"Veterans for Trump, Make America Great Again." Here's one protester who is not a left-winger.

During the 2016 presidential campaign Donald Trump brought up Chicago's sky-high murder rate more than Barack Obama, a Chicagoan, did during his entire eight years in the White House.

Eventually the protest made its way onto Belmont Avenue, with the ultimate destination of Wrigley Field, the home of the Chicago Cubs.

"Trump/Pence must go!" Exactly what does that message have to do with Chicago's violence epidemic? Help me out here, please.

That man's shirt reads, "Swish, Mary, sissy, queer, fairy, pansy, faggot."

"I don't always march in left-wing protests, but when I do I put on my autographed Colin Kaepernick jersey."

911 is a joke? Really? Is this man a September 11 "truther?" Again, what does 9-11 have to do with Chicagoans slaughtering each other?

Or is this loon claiming that Chicago's emergency telephone number is a joke?

If this guy's home is broken into, will he call 911? Or will he dial the cell number of Tio Hardiman, one of the organizers of the protest?

"White isn't always right."

When the left isn't politicizing everything in sight they are racializing it.

I'll wager that the woman holding the sign is always wrong.

And just who is saying "White is always right?"

The couple that protests together stays together.

"White silence equals white consent."

Consent for what?

Hmm...same color poster board as the sign two pics up. Same handwriting too.

"North Side contentment is not more important than black lives." Who thinks like that?

Some of the racializing this evening used dog whistle terms. "North Side" is white. "South Side" is black. In a majority-minority city, what does that really mean?

Oh, of Chicago's 77 official neighborhoods, Donald Trump prevailed in only one--Mount Greenwood on the South Side.

"Hey, hey, what do you say, we're going to disrupt the North Side today."

Business was slow at the bars, restaurants, and souvenir shops near the ballpark.

Eventually the scrum made it to Wrigley Field. Oh, the Cubs ended up losing this game to the Padres.

Cub fans look down at the rabble. Oh, take a good look at the man in the Cubs hat. He's giving the protesters the finger.

The communist banner declares, "This system cannot be reformed. It must be overthrown."

A radical from the Students for a Democratic Society--a 1960s group that counts Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers' terrorist Weather Underground as one of its descendants--once wrote, "The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”

The more things change...

Caracas? Havana? Austin, Texas considering name change

Austin in Texas is what West Berlin was to East Germany. It's a political island. Only Austin, the Texas state capital and where the state's flagship university sits, is a leftist aberration in a conservative state.

Because the city's namesake, Stephen Austin, was a slaveholder, the liberals running the place are considering a name change.
I recommend saluting a leftist failure and renaming it Caracas.

Or perhaps Havana.
