Chicago is losing its black middle class. Can it get it back?

Conditions for black Chicagoans have become worse vs. the country overall and also compared to the rest of black America. Yet there are signs of a population turnaround.

Pete Saunders, an African American urban planner with a master’s from the University of Illinois at Chicago, has mixed feelings about leaving the city.

“The prevailing attitude among black people in Chicago is that, to move up, you’ve got to move away,” he says.

He and his wife, Gwen, left the South Side community of Auburn-Gresham and now live in Naperville, where they enjoy suburban amenities ranging from excellent schools and safe streets to no requirement

This is not what they envisioned Easter Sunday 1916


During the past 30 or so years, Irish government officials have been bribed to enact laws and embrace policies which will soon change the Irish culture forever. The Irish people know they have been betrayed but are too polite to say anything. As they sometimes say, they are f-----.

The man said he is sorry, what more do they want?


A bus company serving college students should be stripped of its right to make pickups and drop-offs at O’Hare Airport for releasing an ad offensive to Chinese students and compounding the offense with an even more insulting “apology,” an influential alderman said Monday.

Two months after dropping out of the Democratic race for governor, Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th) is jumping into the racially charged controversy surrounding Suburban Express, the Champaign-based company that shuttles college students from six colleges in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa to and from the Chicago area.

Pawar, chairman of the City Council’s Asian-American Caucus, wants the Aviation Committee to hold hearings on the incident that could culminate in Suburban Express being evicted from O’Hare.

“O’Hare is one of the busiest airports on the planet. It is the gateway to Chicago. Sort of the welcome mat. Do we want companies like Suburban Express serving that gateway — a company that blatantly

It's a Muslim Thing

Syrian refugee arrested for raping a pony in Germany

Founded in 1898, Berliner Morgenpost is a German newspaper, based and mainly read in Berlin, where it is the second most read daily newspaper.
Sebastian Geisler reports for the Berliner Morgenpost (Google Translate version here) that at 3 p.m. on Friday, November 3, 2017, a “young man” raped a pony in the children’s zoo (Kinderbauernhof) section of Berlin’s Görlitzer Park.
Görlitzer Park, Berlin, Germany
The bestiality was witnessed by a babysitter, who took a photo of the man during his act and immediately reported it to park management.
Amanda F. described the incident to the Berliner Morgenpost: “My babysitter was traveling with our son in Görlitzer Park and they had to watch the man rape the pony.” The babysitter no longer wants to comment on the incident because what she saw was too traumatic.
Realizing that he had been observed, the “young man” let go of the pony and disappeared into the park. But park staff, using the photo taken by the babysitter, searched for and found the man, and held him until police arrived.
The police identified the bestialist as a 23-year-old native Syrian, and charged him with violation of the Animal Welfare Act and “causing a public nuisance through sexual acts”.
According to Article 183a of Germany’s Criminal Code, “causing a public nuisance” is punishable by imprisonment of up to one year or a fine. Violation of the Animal Welfare Act is punishable by imprisonment of up to three years or a fine if the animal has suffered significant pain.
A park employee said the children’s zoo — with two ponies, two donkeys, half a dozen sheep and goats and about ten chickens, ducks and rabbits each — is especially popular with young families. He said:  “Here, positive things happen throughout the year. It is a pity that we are now associated with such an incident.”

Never trust someone that walks around with a copy of the constitution in his vest pocket

Khizr Khan’s claim that the U.S. is restricting his travel may be unraveling. This guy works as a consultant sneaking middle-easterns into the U.S.  Makes a fortune!
By Max Bearak March 7 at 3:49 PM

Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father whose impassioned speech at the Democratic National Convention in July called on Americans to reject a ban on Muslims entering the United States, claimed that his “travel privileges are being reviewed” by U.S. authorities, forcing him to cancel a scheduled speech in Toronto.

The announcement on Monday coincided with President Trump's rewritten order to temporarily ban entry of citizens from six Muslim-majority nations to the United States. Khan has been a U.S. citizen for more than 30 years and was born in Pakistan, which is not one of the six nations.

Ramsay Talks, the organizer of the event Khan was to speak at, seemed to take Khan at his word on 
Monday and included a statement from him in a cancellation post on Facebook. “This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad,” said Khan, according to the post. “I have not been given any reason as to why. I am grateful for your support and look forward to visiting Toronto in the near future.”

The claim, which does not state which U.S. agency contacted him, immediately raised doubts about how it was possible that a U.S. citizen was being prevented from traveling abroad.

On Tuesday, Bob Ramsay, who runs Ramsay Talks, said he didn't know the specifics of Khan's predicament. “I don’t know exactly who conducted the review, but in speaking with Mr. Khan, it was certainly U.S. authorities,” Ramsay said. “That’s all I know.”

As questions about his motivations for making the claim swirl, Khan has refused to elaborate on his initial statement to The Washington Post and other publications. A more detailed request for clarification did not receive an immediate response Tuesday afternoon.

It is unclear whether Khan has previously traveled outside the United States since he was naturalized.

U.S. citizens don't need visas to enter Canada, or even the electronic travel authorizations required of all other foreign visitors there. As a general rule, the United States cannot prevent passport-holding citizens from traveling if they have not been charged with a crime. Public records indicate that Khan has no criminal history, either at the federal level, in Charlottesville, where he lives, or in Silver Spring, his previous place of residence. Furthermore, U.S. Customs and Border Protection told Politico that, as a rule, it does not contact travelers before their txrips.
xThe Canadian foreign ministry also denied issuing any review of Khan's ability to travel there.

“We are unaware of any restrictions regarding this traveler,” said Camielle Edwards, spokeswoman for Canada's Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen.

Khan's son Humayun was killed in 2004 while in Baqubah, Iraq. He was posthumously awarded a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for saving the lives of other soldiers. Since the convention in July, Khan has appeared widely on television and at public events in which he has spoken against the Trump administration and its immigration orders.

H-1B, if you don't want this is, you soon will.

An iconic American company, McDonald’s, has quietly outsourced the jobs of 70 white-collar professionals in Ohio to foreign H-1B workers.

The H-1B outsourcing in the nation’s heartland showcases the growing corporate use of foreign H-1B workers to replace American white-collar professionals, and it comes after companies have used waves of legal and illegal migrants to slash blue-collar jobs and wages in Ohio and around the country.

Also, the 70 Ohio jobs that McDonalds outsourced to lower wage foreign graduates are not Silicon Valley technology and software jobs — they’re white-collar accounting jobs performed by graduates from mainstream business schools. That outsourcing of mainstream business jobs spotlights the growing movement of foreign workers into all corners of the nation’s white-collar professional economy.

White-collar outsourcing “is not just a Silicon Valley thing anymore, it is happening all over” the country, said Steve Camarota, head of research at the Center for Immigration Studies.

Nationwide, the foreign population of white-collar temporary workers, dubbed “guest-workers,” now

Speaks with a forked tongue

The father of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq who is caught up in a war of words with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is an immigration lawyer who specializes in a highly controversial program which permits the legal smuggling of foreigners into the U.S. Although the immigration program is legal it is becoming obvious that Mr. Kahn's practices are not, in that he is practicing law without a license from Virginia, Maryland or the District of Columbia. 
Khizr M. Khan’s website notes that he works to help clients with the E-2 and EB-5 programs that let overseas investors buy into U.S. companies and also provides green cards for family members.
It also said that he helps in the purchase of U.S. real estate and businesses. The website lists his ability to practice in New York, though it gives a Washington phone number for the lawyer who lives in Virginia. A man who answered the phone said the website was correct, though he would not identify himself.
“The E-2 and EB-5 are two of the most notoriously abused visa categories that essentially allow wealthy foreigners to buy their way to U.S. residency, and possibly citizenship, with a relatively modest investment,” said Jessica Vaughan, the policy director for the Center for Immigration Studies.
The EB-5 program has been caught up in multiple scandals and critics are pressing Congress to kill it.
“The EB-5 is literally a ‘citizenship for sale’ program in which a visa for a whole family can be bought for as little $500,000,” Vaughan told Secrets. “It is literally a ‘citizenship for sale’ program, and it’s an amazing deal. Compared to other countries, America is the Walmart of investor visa programs,” she added.
One criticism is that it allows an immigrant to invest $500,000 in an approved type of business and in return get a set of green cards for the investor, the investor’s spouse, and all their under 21-years-of-age children.
Other documented problems include foreigners getting fleeced in fraudulent schemes to help them invest in the U.S.
There is no indication that Khan’s clients have been caught up in the controversies.

Orlando was not a mass shooting

It was an act of terrorism. Anyone that claims different has an agenda.

Speaker Ryan

Not yet House speaker, Paul Ryan is already betraying us by choosing pro-amnesty lobbyist to be his chief-of-staff

Conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage told his listeners this morning that a battle in the war over the future of Western civilization has been lost as millions of migrants from the Middle East who largely oppose Judeo-Christian values and have no intention of assimilating flood the United States, Britain, France, Germany and other nations.
Savage said he received an email from someone who’s far smarter and farseeing “than I am,” saying “It’s over.”
Paraphrasing the email, Savage said that what German Chancellor Angela Merkel is “doing to Germany, what the weakling is doing to England, what the socialist is doing to France, what Obama the psychopath is doing to America, will render this country non-existent in less than 50 years.”
What Savage didn’t tell his listeners is that Obama has lots of help from Republicans.

Oregon Shooting

Oregon shooter singled out Christians for slaughter

Yesterday, a lone gunman killed 9 and wounded 7 people in Umpqua Community College (UCC), a picturesque campus in Roseburg, Oregon. In a shootout with police, the shooter himself was killed. Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, however, said 13 people died.
Here’s what we are told about the massacre thus far:


Stacy Boylen, whose daughter was one of the wounded, told CNN that the gunman started “asking people one by one what their religion was. ‘Are you a Christian?’ he would ask them, and if you’re a Christian stand up. And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them.”
A twitter user named @bodhilooney tweeted that according to her grandmother, who was at the scene of the carnage, if victims said they were Christian “then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”
Student Kort­ney Moore, 18, said she saw the teacher of her Writing 115 class get shot in the head at the college’s Snyder Hall before the gunman started asking people to state their religion and opening fire.
The killer’s disdain for religion was evident in an online profile, in which he became a member of a “doesn’t like organized religion” group on an Internet dating site.


Myspace Chris Harper-Mercer, 26 gunman in the Umpqua Community College in Oregon
His name is Chris Harper-Mercer, 26. He carried 3 pistols and a rifle.
It is believed Harper-Mercer was the anonymous poster on the chat forum, 4chan, who wrote this ominous comment the night before: “Some of you guys are alright. Don’t go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest. happening thread will be posted tomorrow morning. so long space robots.”
Reportedly, other posters on 4chan cheered him on.
Harper-Mercer’s online profiles indicate he had a fascination with the terror tactics of the Irish Republican Army, and bought Nazi memorabilia. In a blog post, he wrote this about Vester Lee Flanagan, who murdered a Virginia newswoman and cameraman live on air: “Seems like the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.”
Update: Harper-Mercer described his ethnicity as “Mixed Race”; his religion as “Not Religious, Not Religious, but Spiritual”; his ideal woman as “Pagan, Wiccan, Not Religious, but Spiritual” with “vampire, piercings, psychic, tattoos”; his hobbies as including “Killing Zombies”; and his favorite food as “Always Dieting, BRAINS!”. He had “connections” with two people, one of whom is a Muslim named Mahmoud Ali Ehsani who says he loves Allah and the Quran, and has a many photos of Muslim terrorists.


Joe Olson, a former president of Umpqua Community College, said that it has only one unarmed security officer and that the community decided against armed guards last year.


When news came about the shooting, despite the fact that reports that UCC is a gun-free zone and had only one unarmed guard, Obama immediately and illogically called again for gun control, bemoaning that America is “the only advanced country on earth [that] sees these kind of mass shooting every few months.”

Someone really should ask the POS in the White House about Chicago — a gun-control city where every weekend is marked by multiple gun shootings and carnage.
Chicago is the poster child for how gun control does NOTHING to stop gun violence, as chronicled every week by our DCG. See her latest post, “Gun control, Chicago style: More Than 50 People Shot for the Second Weekend in a Row in Chicago.”
