Political correctness has turned men into wimps.

A DePaul freshman heading home from school was brutally attacked for her iPhone.

The worst part? The 19-year-old woman says she was beaten as others just stood by and watched.

It was a brutal attack in broad daylight, and while the victim and her family are still coping with the physical and psychological toll, it's taken they are still coming to grips with the fact that two able bodied men were standing within ten feet of Jessica and did absolutely nothing to help her.

DePaul freshman brutally attacked on CTA train

It was just past 10 Thursday morning when DePaul University freshman Jessica Hughes was heading home from class on the Blue Line. The train had almost emptied out at the UIC Halsted stop when a man more than twice her size took a seat directly in front of her.

"All of a sudden he just turned around and pretends to crack his back and looks me right in the eye...and that's when I knew something was off...cause he looked at me for a good few seconds,” said Jessica Hughes.

For Jessica, the next few moments would be terrifying. The man demanded her iPhone and when she wouldn't hand it over, he and a woman began attacking her. They punched her repeatedly in the face, breaking her nose and even biting her hand. All the while, two men watched the attack from just a few feet away and did nothing to stop it.

"I called for help multiple times and they didn't come to my aid. They were just watching,” Jessica said.

For Jessica’s father, the anguish over his daughter's beating is matched only by his outrage towards the two bystanders who refused to come to Jessica’s aid.

"I feel shame for them...I feel that being men...being a father...I don't know if they're fathers…but your job is to protect your children…what if it was their child being beaten by a humongous man?” said father Richard Amador.

15 months is not enough

He should also be tarred and feathered and displayed in the public square in Yorkville. This phony son of a bitch is representative of what America is electing now.  No morals, no ethics, no limits. It's got to be stopped.

Coming soon.....Snow Mountain on the lakefront!

Bid to save Lucas Museum relies on complex financing plan which will leave taxpayers on the hook as bought off politicians try to please Mr. Lucas. This proposal has got to be the ugliest building I ever saw. 

My only question is why?

A rendering of what Lucas Museum would look like at a proposed new site at McCormick Place East.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Hail Mary plan to demolish and replace McCormick Place East to make way for the Lucas museum relies on legislative approval of a complex financing scheme that calls for extending the life of entertainment taxes and having the movie mogul write a $743 million check.

The Illinois General Assembly, still embroiled in a marathon budget stalemate, would be required to do some heavy-lifting to keep the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Chicago — and so would Chicago taxpayers.

The General Assembly would be asked to:

Why is Bridget Gainer pandering to the Negroes?


Declaring that “nothing stops a bullet like a job,” Democratic Cook County Commissioner Bridget Gainer, of Chicago, has proposed an “emergency plan” to provide jobs to youth this summer.

It’s the second such plan to be proposed in the past week. County Commissioner Richard Boykin, D-Oak Park, proposed spending $45 million on youth jobs, using most of the proceeds from a proposed 4 cents-per-gallon increase in the county’s gas tax to fund the program.

Gainer’s proposal, by contrast, does not include a tax increase. Instead, she wants the county to defer all

Chicago GOP chairman says local Republican Party filled with Democrats in disguise

Some are calling it a political purge.

 - Some are calling it a political purge.
Republicans in Chicago are used to being outnumbered by Democrats. But now, the party chairman claims local GOP ranks are riddled with Democrats in disguise. And in an unprecedented purge, he's moving to fire one-fourth of the city's elected Republican ward committeemen.   
The Republican purge targets 13 ward committeemen who were all elected by the voters in last month's primary. Some are angrily fighting back. Chicago GOP Chairman Chris Cleveland is refusing to seat 13 of the newly-elected committeemen because he says almost all of them voted in a Democratic Party primary.

Cleveland calls them agents of Democratic boss Mike Madigan.
“He changed the law at the end of 2014 to make it so that the ward

Hope and change, 8 years later


By Teri O'Brien - 
Dr. Martin Luther King, quoting abolitionist Theodore Parker, said that "the arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice." Watching our country proceed headlong on the downside of Barack Obama’s socialist failure curve, we can clearly see now that “hope and change” is definitely not what a lot of people thought it was cracked up to be.
Not so in 2008, remember? That was when some people, the naive, the emotionally-driven, the uninformed, and frankly, in some cases, the outright stupid, were besotted with the idea that a dopey, jug-eared unaccomplished empty suit with a game show host smile and the ability to read from a TelePrompTer was the savior they had been waiting for. Of course, 2008 was when that very savior, Barack Hussein Obama, was striding across

Hello fellow 19th Warders. I am still learning how this blog mechanism works so please be patient with me. 

I am a CPD who was passed over for promotion because I didn''t have the horses. So much for that. I have six years to go and I intend to enjoy every moment. I'm going to use this blog to say what I feel. I'm going to voice all those things that I have had to say under my breath. 

Being a life long resident, I know every inch of this turf and many of the residents. Fine fine people I  must say. It is because they are so nice that they are being led by a proper bunch of bastards. It is they that is going to be the recurrent theme of this blog. I am going to shine the spotlight on em. 

Please do me a favor and participate in the poll I have listed on the right side. 

I have chosen to go with the pen name Murph the 4th.

Hi Everyone, I just want to let the readers know that I have sold this blog to someone else (for a very nominal sum) and that they will be taking over soon.  Thank you for your loyal following and know that I always tried to tell the truth about everything.  Murph

19th Ward residents need to get smart. These politicians are speaking out of both sides of their mouth.

Earlier today someone called someone who called me and strongly suggested that I get that CSX post off the blog. Consider this my response. 

Here it is, a list of all CSX political contributions during the past few years. Look it up and judge for yourself. 

CSX made allot of political contributions but they certainly haven't given to everyone. Why have they been donating so much to the local politicians? Answer, so they can run 5000 chemical tank cars through the neighborhood every week. Nobody sees anything because they have all been taken care of.

Brown, Protesters can’t blame Trump crowd for this ugliness

I haven’t figured out quite yet how anybody is going to beat Donald Trump, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t it.

The protesters who caused Trump to cancel his Friday night rally at the UIC Pavilion erupted in elation at the announcement and took to the arena floor to celebrate.

I’m not sure what they were celebrating.

You can’t shut up Trump by shouting him down. Maybe for an hour. But his chance to speak

It's time for our local pols to call upon CSX to elevate the rail lines over the arterial streets in our neighborhood

Meanwhile, Ald. Matt O'Shea (19th) on Monday sent an email to constituents saying their opportunity to submit public comments on the issue had been extended until 5 p.m. Wednesday. O'Shea asked that residents carefully craft emails about how heavy rail traffic on the CSX rail line has made them late for work, missed picking up children from school or other such incidents.
The Far Southwest Side alderman made his initial request for such letters on Feb. 17. Thus far, 60 such complaints have been filed. He said Monday he's hoping to have at least 100 documented cases from residents with issues related to the rail line.
The latest development follows legal action last month from O'Shea along with the mayor of suburban Evergreen Park. Their petition seeks fines and sanctions against CSX for breaking promises made when acquiring the Elsdon line.
CSX has also long owned the Blue Island Spur Line, which runs parallel with Rockwell Street in the 19th Ward. The deal to also buy the Elsdon line saw the

The brilliance of some of these Chicago aldermen have never before been witnessed by mankind

Aldermen say volume-based garbage fee could fund tax rebate and encourage recycling which will help save the trees and end global warming.

Chicago’s $9.50-a-month garbage collection fee should be replaced by a volume-based, “pay-as-you-throw” fee for each container to encourage recycling and bankroll a citywide property tax rebate, aldermen suggested Tuesday.

Tired of waiting for a deadlocked Illinois General Assembly to double the homeowners’ exemption, nine aldermen are moving to take matters into their own hands.

They’re demanding City Council hearings on their fall-back plan for a citywide property tax rebate to shield owner-occupied households, whose annual incomes do not exceed
