BUMPED UP.....They are asking for it......fill up your gas tanks

in reality, the military buildup is much more substantial than what is being reported in the media

buildups like this are not for psychological purposes

in my opinion, they have earned it

Cdl Burke, Bp Schneider issue ‘declaration of truths’ to correct rampant ‘doctrinal confusion’ in Church

ROME, June 10, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Cardinal Raymond Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneider, together with several other bishops, have issued a public declaration of truths of the faith to remedy the “almost universal doctrinal confusion and disorientation” endangering the spiritual health and eternal salvation of souls in the Church today.

PETITION: Support Senior Cardinals' and Bishops' Declaration of Truths Amid Confusion in Universal Church. Sign the petition here.
Some of the 40 truths which are elucidated in the declaration implicitly reference statements made by Pope Francis, while others relate to points of confusion that have arisen or intensified during the current pontificate. Still others address moral errors in society that are gravely harming lives, as much of the hierarchy stands by.
The declaration upholds the Church’s perennial teaching on the Eucharist,

American merchants pushing Chinese garbage

As the uncertainty and potential impact over U.S.-China tariffs war still looms large, 661 companies and associations from different industries, including retailers Walmart, Target, Costco, Macy’s and Gap, just sent a letter to the White House urging the Trump administration to do this: Get back to the negotiating table and resolve trade tariffs spat with China. 
“We remain concerned about the escalation of tit-for-tat tariffs," according to the letter sent Thursday by Tariffs Hurt The Heartland, the largest nationwide business community effort against tariffs and backed by more than 150 trade groups across retail, tech, manufacturing and agriculture sectors. “Additional tariffs will have a significant, negative and long-term impact on American businesses, farmers, families and the U.S. economy. Broadly applied tariffs are not an effective tool to change China’s unfair trade practices. Tariffs are taxes paid directly by U.S. companies….not China.”
Trump administration has already raised tariffs to 25% from 10% on about $200 billion of furniture and

CPD says Anthony Riccio’s vacation from June 1-7 was “approved and paid for in October” prior to the mayoral election. But Lightfoot says she gave an edict that none of the top brass take time off during the summer.

Justice Burke

Backlash against Justice Anne Burke for appointing white Cook County judge

By Dane Placko


Posted Jun 14 2019 08:39PM CDT

CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - Political and community leaders on the West Side are turning up the heat on Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke, who is the wife of powerful Chicago Alderman Ed Burke.

The leaders say they are angry because Anne Burke appointed a white woman to fill a judicial post traditionally held by African Americans.

Justice burke, though, says she is not backing down.


I wonder who is behind this "kick them while they're down". Re the matter of race, since when does the color of a judge matter? This protest smacks of racism per se.

Now is the time.....Jerry Joyce for State's Attorney

A BRILLIANT ALTERNATIVE TO KIM FOXX

Jerry had a very respectable tally considering it was his first campaign. Such a showing suggest that the electorate likes the qualities possessed by a sensible, hard-working family man. Jerry has a very bright future if he chooses to pursue public service. May I suggest that he be a candidate for the office of Cook County State's Attorney in 2020. It's time to restore the rule of law and order. Jerry will represent the interest of the citizens.

Jeremiah Joyce Jr. for State's Attorney

Jeremiah Joyce Jr., a former Cook County assistant state’s attorney, sold himself as the 'law-and-order' candidate. The only candidate without baggage. The only candidate that makes sense. 

COOK COUNTY WOULD BE BLESSED TO HAVE THIS MAN BE IT's CHIEF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.

  •  He will treat the office seriously
  • He has all the necessary attributes, tremendous integrity, smart, caring, knowledgeable of how the system works and has no political or business conflicts

It's Friday morning

how many people will be murdered in Chicago this weekend?
how many people will be maimed?
how many children will lose a parent?
how many parents will lose a child?
what will be the cost to taxpayers?

FDIC wants $14.5 million from dead Bridgeport banker’s estate over massive fraud

Blasting John F. Gembara’s handling of clout-heavy Washington Federal Bank for Savings, they say he gave no-collateral ‘loan advances’ without expecting repayment. 
John F. Gembara gave four customers of his fraud-ridden Washington Federal Bank for Savings unsecured “loan advances” totaling $14.5 million. The Sun-Times has identified the customers. 
In the five years leading up to the strange death of John F. Gembara, the Bridgeport bank president found dead in December 2017 at a customer’s Park Ridge home, his lending practices took a bizarre turn, records examined by the Chicago Sun-Times show.

Mayor Lightfoot slams Chicago police union while pushing for reforms


By Mike Flannery

CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - A leader of the police officers’ union gave Mayor Lori Lightfoot a public tongue-lashing at Wednesday’s City Council meeting, and the mayor gave it right back to him.

Leaders of the police union have vowed to block virtually all of the key changes Mayor Lightfoot wants to make to their collective bargaining contract. Escalating the conflict, the union's first vice president went to the City Council to scold the mayor to her face.

“You will have difficulty achieving your goals, if you do not include us and our members support,” Patrick Murray said. “if you want to sit there and talk to us, I don't have a problem.”

When J.B. Pritzker took over as the governor of Illinois this year, Democratic lawmakers, who had spent four years at an impasse with his Republican predecessor, vowed that their party’s new grip on the State Capitol would bring immediate change.

The pace has been startling. In recent months, Illinois legislators have moved sharply to the left,

COOK CO COMMISSIONER SEAN MORRISON LEADS EFFORT TO STOP ABORTION RESOLUTION

Screen Shot 2019-06-10 at 3.51.49 PM
CHICAGO - When pro-abortion Cook County Board commissioners joined together to promote a bill that would make Illinois the most abortion-friendly state in the nation lat month, Commissioner Sean Morrison determined it would not face the whole Board without opposition.
Last Wednesday, when the resolution came before the Board's Legislation & Intergovernmental Committee, pro-lifers were on hand to object to the resolution, and they were effective enough to stall the resolution's progress.
"Because of the efforts of organized pro-life constituents who attended the committee meeting and gave
