“We are in your state, We are in your cities, We are in your streets” ISIS Threatens “Obama Town”

Hat/Tip to CBS News Chicago. It would seem that many terror organizations refer to Chicago as “Obama Town.” Over the past six years, Chicago has become a top potential target for international terrorists, a top security expert said Friday, making the posting of a veiled threat by Islamic radicals on Twitter a higher cause for concern. “Many organizations refer to Chicago as Obama Town,” said CBS 2 security expert Ross Rice, a former top FBI agent in Chicago. Under President Obama, the U.S. took out Osama bin Laden, and used repeated drone strikes to weaken terror networks. Our Government sent […]

Daily Kos Laments that Klingon Disruptors can be “purchased and carried anywhere in Georgia! “

OK, maybe it wasn’t a Klingon Disruptor, but the Kossacks really stepped in it when they decided to run a story about the guns that could be purchased and carried in Georgia.

King Barry Addresses his Subjects

I have a pen and a phone. And a teddy bear. I hug it because people are mean to me. “He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary….” Constitution, Article II Section III “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.” Barry Obama As is the case once a year, the ruler of the former Republic of the United States addressed Congress.  I, the Manhattan Infidel, as is my duty, attentively vomiting watched the speech.  I now present […]

More of Obama’s Thug Tactics, con’t.

As reported here at Conservative Hideout previously, the Obama administration is steeped in what can be described as Chicago Thug Political Tactics. Unfortunately, the liberal policies of FDR and LBJ gave vast amounts of money to the political leaders in Chicago to consolidate their choke hold on the city, and therefore, the entire state. “The New Deal of the 1930s and the Great Society of the 1960s gave the Democratic Party access to new funds and programs for housing, slum clearance, urban renewal, and education, through which to dispense patronage and maintain control of the city.” Since Obama cut his […]

Guns Save Lives: Armed Woman Takes on Six Armed Robbers, Saves Husband

Once again, guns save lives… video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo playerOf course, liberals would be happier if these people were dead.  As only criminals can have guns.  Fortunately, they were not in Chicago, where strict gun control laws prevent shootings, right? The City of Chicago is still racking up distressing numbers of shootings even as crime otherwise in the Windy City has gone down. On August 12, for instance, six people were shot in the space of only one hour. On that Monday, between the 6:15 PM and 7:13 PM, six people were shot, one of them a 13-year-old boy. At […]

Useful Idiot Alert: Chicago Public School Teacher Promises ” Violent Revolution,” Bashes Economic Freedom

I’ve covered the connections between public education, the unions, and communism many times.   Here is just the latest example. As you can see, Jesse Jackson is right there, and he isn’t disagreeing. Once again, this is a direct consequence of the Long March Through the Institutions.  McCarthy WAS right.  There were communists in our institutions, and they were indoctrinating followers.  This useful idiot is one of them, and the beauty of it is, he doesn’t even realize it. What this teacher ought to remember is what Bezmenov warned of.

Strict Gun Laws in Action: 7 Shot Dead, 41 Injured in Gun Free Chicago

Wait a second, you mean that in gun free Chicago, seven people were shot dead, and another 41 injured?   How could that be?  They have gun control, don’t you know?  Perhaps Weasel Zippers can explain this mysterious incident… Via Washington Times: Chicago saw its bloodiest weekend this year as gun violence throughout the city left seven dead and 41 injured, including boys younger than 19. One victim was 16-year-old Kevin Rivera, who was shot to death, as he walked near his home, by a bicycle-riding gunman, United Press International reported. Another was a 15-year-old who was shot and killed by […]

We Have a Winner: The Useful Idiot of the Month for Aril 2013…

Gun victims that destroy their own freedom and security by call for gun control-and that’s what earned them the title of Useful Idiot of the Month. Gun control that makes them less safe, and would not have stopped them, or their family members from being victims in the first place. It’s unfortunate that they (or their loved ones) were the victims of a crime, but disarming the rest of us only makes the rest of us less safe.  Since criminals don’t follow laws anyway, they will still have guns.  Just look at Chicago, which has the most restrictive gun laws […]

Union Violence in Chicago

It seems that socialists and teachers (union) were marching in Chicago, or do I repeat myself?  But, in all seriousness, it’s getting warmer, so we will see a spike in union activity, and union violence (This must be repetition day at the CH 2.0)  At any rate, people are not supposed to film socialists and teachers, and Jesse Jackson, because the guy that did got some Alinsky for his trouble.  Here is the video, via Publius Forum… It’s really priceless.  From the juvenile penis comments, to telling the one ethical person there to “not snitch,” these so called adults showed […]

Cigarette Taxes Create More Failure? NY and Chicago Suffer From Liberalism

It’s common sense, really.  If you tax something highly, human nature dictates that people will go out of their way to avoid the tax.  Liberals, however, seems to have missed that, because they continue to tax and tax.  Then, they are completely shocked and surprised when people do what they have always done.  Hot Air has the latest… First, my own home stomping grounds of New York, which has been seeking a way to stave off total fiscal collapse by jacking up one of the highest tobacco tax rates in the nation. How’s that working out for ya? ALBANY – […]

What do Chicago Teachers do in Their Spare Time? Attend the Midwest Marxism Conference!

Over the years, we’ve shown the relationship, or the uniformity, between unions and the Communist Party.  Legal Insurrection has the story of how the Midwest Marxism Conference we chock full of teachers. Chicago Teachers Union Vice President Jesse Sharkey, who spoke at one of the breakout sessions, was just one of the hundreds of attendees, many of them teachers, there to strategize about the next phases of the partnership between Chicago Socialists and the Chicago Teachers Union. Of course, all recording was strictly verboten unless you had been preapproved by the Chicago Socialists. The event kicked off with Becca Barnes’s keynote speech. Barnes, […]

President Obama Ignores Pleas to Lend 1K to Save His Sick Nephew

This is a stunning story, especially for those who think that Obama is still ‘a nice guy.’ He may be a good husband and father (from what we’ve heard), but no ‘nice guy’ acts this way towards his immediate family. Via Powerlineblog from their story AN INSTANCE OF LIBERALS’ PREFERENCE FOR NARRATIVE OVER REALITY: …We learned in a remarkable news story, a couple of days ago, that Barack Obama has an actual brother, not a figurative one, who is living in poverty in Africa. His name is George Obama. Barack has met his brother George, but has no ongoing contact with […]

Let’s Ban Doctors, Cars, and Knives before We Ban AK-47s

Suddenly, Barack Obama wants to ban AK-47 “assault” weapons because they belong only on “the battlefield of war,” even though the LEGAL AK-47s in the U.S. are dressed-up 22-caliber semi-automatic rifles NOT used in war. New York’s Nanny Mayor Mike Bloomberg wants America’s police to go on strike until the federal government adopts stricter gun laws, although I would expect that if his own security police went on strike he’d become a little nervous. Lanny Davis, former special counsel to Bill Clinton, told Sean Hannity on the radio Tuesday that the federal government should be tracking the purchase of weapons and ammunition to identify “disturbing trends” […]

A Tale of Two Stories: Islamists Call for the Death of Gays, but let’s Stop Chik-Fil-A from Opening New Restaurants!

As is commonly known, homosexuality is a death sentence under Shariah law, but it seems that, at least according to the MSM and American liberals, that Chik-fil-a is a far greater threat.  So, let’s take a look at this, and see where the facts take us. First up, The Progressive Puppy takes a look at how homosexuals are treated in Islamic countries… These days, gays and lesbians live in terror under Islam.   Spiegel International: In most Islamic countries, gay men and women are ostracized, persecuted and in some cases even murdered. Repressive regimes are often fanning the flames of hatred in […]

Lefty Protesters Attack Restaurant Customers in Chicago

It seems that the Anarchists are up to their usual antics, which includes violence against people.  GateWay Pundit has more… The Sun-Times reported: It was the middle of the lunch rush Saturday, and Mike Winston was working in the kitchen of his Tinley Park restaurant, the Ashford House, when a waitress screamed a fight had broken out in the dining room. Police call the melee at the restaurant a targeted assault by a mob that Winston said wielded metal batons and hammers. Ten diners were hurt in the attack, and three of those were hospitalized. Tinley Park police had five suspected […]

Chicago Police Officer “Terminates” the First Amendment?

At least, that’s what he thought.  According to reports, two news reporters were arrested for causing a scene.  The Blaze has more coverage, plus video… Chicago police arrested WGN reporter Dan Ponce and WMAQ photographer Donte Williams Saturday, saying that they were “creating a scene” outside of Mount Sinai hospital. The two were covering the fatal shooting of a six-year old girl and, though they were already across the street, the officer demanded they go another street over. “F*** news affairs, I don’t care about news affairs.  Forget news affairs,” he said. The first thing that comes to my mind is that […]

Bridge For Sale – Excellent Buy!

…and as soon as I sell you the Brooklyn Bridge I‘m going to convince you that the Whitehouse did nothing wrong in their dealings with congressman Joe Sestak. The Obama folks put out a story today that stinks worse than unwelcome house guests. The way the Whitehouse spins this yarn is to say that Bill Clinton was to speak to Joe at the request of Rahm Emmanuel about a job that paid nothing. To get this great job for nothing all he had to do was “nothing”. Actually he had to drop out of the Senate race in Pennsylvania so […]
