Eric Khon Slams Rich Miller as Anti-Capitalist

Eric Kohn over at Illinois Mirror has a great piece that highlights the main difference between real capitalism and the sort of crony capitalism (which isn’t capitalism at all) that the left so dearly loves.

Rich Miller is a liberal who runs a well-trafficked website on Illinois politics called Capitol Fax. While he is certainly a Democrat and fully linked into that sort of politics, his site isn’t always mere propaganda for the left–though it is filled with such. Once in a while, Miller also slams a Democrat and he has certainly reported on situations and incidents that Democrats would rather be kept quiet. So, by this I mean his site isn’t mere propaganda as once in a while he does do some actual, good, unbiased reporting, or as Rush Limbaugh calls it a “random act of journalism.”

Miller’s site is also his business. He makes a tidy living off his efforts and he deserves his success for having built a website from the ground up that has become one of the state’s biggest sources of political news. It is also notable for being a website that makes money. Thar ain’t many of them around, to be sure. So, congrats to Rich.

Chicago Math: Three is Only Two

-By Warner Todd Huston

On WLS AM 89 radio political reporter Bill Cameron featured an interview with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel that shows just why math is soooooo darn hard for politicians.

The interview was about Rahm trying to get hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to be set aside and wasted–er, bestowed–on a presidential library for Barack Obama.

In the radio clip Rahm says the following:

“I have been to both the Lincoln library, the Carter library down in Atlanta, President Clinton’s library in Little Rock, and seen the economic and cultural energy that’s created.”

So, Rahm has been to “both” of all three locations?

No wonder it is so hard for our Chicago politicians to understand that hard math stuff. When three only equals two, I guess we can see why so much money mysteriously disappears in Chicago.

Pistol Turned to ‘Submachine Gun’ By Clueless Media

Once again we get proof of how mindless and clueless the media is, how they don’t fact check, but just mindlessly pass on each other’s bad work ad infinitum. This time it happened with a story about a criminal who used a .22 caliber pistol in a crime but one clueless reporter turned it into a “submachine gun” and hundreds of his mindless colleagues followed suit passing the lie on and on and on.

Clueless reporter Darryl Holliday of DNAinfo Chicago, a website that caters to local news, reported on an incident that was perpetrated by a man from West Garfield Park who began wielding a .22 caliber pistol in a grocery store because he didn’t want to pay the 22 cents tax on a bottle of pop he was trying to buy.

Holliday “reported” that the crook “pulled an Intratec submachine gun out of a Gucci satchel,” and in the next paragraph again claimed the piece was a “submachine gun” saying, “Officers arrived on the scene shortly after to find Shelton’s Gucci bag open on the counter as well as 15 bullets in the blue steel .22-caliber submachine gun–eight live rounds in one magazine, five in another and one in the chamber, according to court documents.”

Of course, it is clear that reporter Holliday doesn’t have any idea what he’s rambling on about. The .22 caliber Intratec pistol is not a “submachine gun. It is a semi-automatic pistol like every other semi-auto pistol.

Illinois School: Gun Rights Only What Government Allows Them to Be

The U.S. Constitution says that our Second Amendment rights shall not be infringed. That’s pretty straightforward. But a middle school in Illinois has decided that shall not really means that you have no rights unless government says you are allowed to have them.

According to a workbook handout from Grant Middle School in Springfield, Illinois–that happens to be the capital city of the most corrupt state in America–Americans only have Second Amendment rights if they go and “register” with government and if government has decided they are worthy of being allowed those rights.

Democrats Honor Vote Fraud Criminal in Cincinnati

Al Sharpton gives criminal Melowese Richardson a big hug at her “welcome home” gala thrown by Ohio democrats.

Once again we see an example that to be a Democrat is to celebrate criminality–not merely indulge in criminality, but making it something to be proud of. This time it is evinced in the giant “welcome home” party thrown for a racist who was convicted of voter fraud in Ohio.

You may recall that a Cincinnati, Ohio resident named Melowese Richardson voted six times for Barack Obama in 2012 because he “had a right” to be President. This black racist purposefully voted twice for herself, sent an absentee ballot in for her granddaughter (who went and legally voted on her own on Election Day) and sent three absentee ballots in for her sister who is infirm and in a coma.

This Democrat criminal was such an ignoramus that she fully admitted to her illegal actions right on TV in February of 2013 saying, “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.”

Illinois Wins Again: Worst Unemployment Record in USA

Illinois continues to rack up plaudits as one of the worst states in the entire country for every measure that makes a successful state. Bad bond ratings, among the highest for people moving away from her, worst pension messes, crummy education, etc. And now, Illinois has won the booby prize as the single worst state in the union for its unemployment track record. Yaaaa, Illinois.

At 9 percent unemployment, Illinois now has the worst unemployment rate of every state around it in the Midwest. But even worse for the Land of Sinkin’–er, I mean Land of Lincoln–the state has the worst downward trends in employment for the whole country. Illinois’ unemployment rate has gone up more times than its gone down and that is the worst record in the whole country over the last five years.

As the Illinois Policy Institute recently noted, “Illinois’ recovery from the Great Recession has been hindered by self-inflicted wounds. After the 2011 tax hikes, the Illinois jobless rate jumped from 9.4 percent to 10.2 percent. The US average declined in the same period.”
Meanwhile, in the surrounding Midwestern state, every state but Illinois has had a downward trend for unemployment by about an average of some 2 percent. And yet, Democrat controlled Illinois has seen unemployment go up and up.

Chicago Sun-Times’ Carol Marin Indulges Her Inner Bigot

Looks like long-time Chicago investigative reporter Carol Marin really laid her hate for everyone right of center bare with her lie-filled attack on WLS radio personality and political operative Dan Proft last week.

Marin, a reporter with quite a reputation for factual columns, lambasted a mail ad that Proft’s political action group sent out that featured a “homophobic” slam on House member Ron Sandack.

Only there was a problem with Marin’s attack on Proft. The ad she was criticizing wasn’t sent by his PAC. It was sent by Illinois Family Action.

Marin slammed Proft as a gay basher, called him a homophobe, and attacked him in several ways interpreting all his mailers are anti-gay.

She proved to be one of those haters of conservatives and Republicans that reads “hate” into everything people right of center do. She proved to be shrill, blind to reality, and more interested in promulgating her own brand of hate than in the truth.

So, no doubt you are reading that headline and expecting me to be coming out in favor of perverted, privacy invading photos taken up a woman’s skirt with neither her knowledge nor approval. Naturally I am not, but I am still glad that the Massachusetts Supreme Court did not ban such illicit photography. In fact, the court did exactly what it should have.

Earlier this week the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that these disgusting upskirt shots are not illegal.

Last year a man in Boston was secretly taking video and still shots underneath women’s skirts on the city’s public buses and trains. He was using these photos for a sexual purpose, of course, posting them online for other perverts to see.

Several years ago a mother who cares for a disabled teen was shocked to discover that the Gov. of Illinois was going to force her into a union because she gets state aid to care for her son. She protested this forced unionization and the forced paying of dues that goes with it. Now a union professor is saying that unions should use violence against this woman to silence her.

Dr. Alan Singer, a Professor of Secondary Education at Hofstra University, urged unions to take “aggressive, illegal actions” saying it was “the only way” to stop people like Pam Harris from hurting the union cause of extorting business and government.

Mrs. Harris is the woman behind the Illinois lawsuit fighting state imposed unionism (Harris v. Quinn) that has made it to the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States.

Ill GOP Gov Poll: Rauner Still Leading, Dillard Takes Second Place

The folks at Champion News has the results of a new poll that shows that race for the GOP nomination for Governor has tightened a little and a new candidate has stormed into second place.

Conservative businessman Bruce Rauner is still in the lead, but his numbers have dropped to 18 percent. This is to be expected as we get closer to primary Election Day.

But the more interesting aspect of this poll is that State Senator Kirk Dillard has stormed into second place while State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, the former number two man, has fallen to the bottom of the pack.

The poll gives Rauner a big lead at 35.6 percent. But Dillard has come from last place to second with 17.25 percent of the vote. Then, taking up a perennial third place, State Senator Bill Brady garnered 12.8 percent of the vote.

Fetid Chicago Schools: 11-Year-Old Suspended for Broken Toy Gun

Once again we see the stupidity of the so-called “zero tolerance” policy in our fetid schools with an 11-year-old boy in Chicago who was suspended for voluntarily turning in a broken toy gun to school officials after he remembered he had it in his coat pocket when he got to school.

Chicago’s Frederick Funston Elementary School recently introduced random pat downs of students entering the school with an eye toward stopping weapons from coming into the classroom. So, when sixth grader Caden Cook was waiting in line to get into the school he remembered he had the broken toy gun in his coat pocket and voluntarily turned it in to school authorities.

Being honest was the student’s big mistake. Instead of school officials just taking the little toy and tossing it in the garbage like a sensible adult would do, the boy’s life was turned upside down from multiple attacks at the hands of school administrators incensed that the child dare to break their foolish, illogical “zero tolerance” policy.

California’s Gun Confiscation Program Based on Faulty Gun Registry

If you need any proof at all that governments in this very country intend to use gun registries as a means to track down and confiscate our firearms, California is only the latest example to prove it.

California used its registry of guns to begin a program of confiscating guns from people they claim are “criminals.”

But the system the state has devised to identify these evil-doers seems to be quite screwed up. Just ask Bakersfield resident Michael Merritt who was confronted with this roving goon squad of cops that have been cruising the state and confiscating guns from people who may or may not be guilty of owning guns in violation of “the law.”

Today, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford has come out to charge that operatives of rival GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner is trying to smear him. Rutherford says he is being extorted by an attorney connected to Bruce Rauner who is representing someone who plans to make some sort of harassment charge against the Treasurer.

The thus far unnamed person is apparently an employee of the Illinois Department of the Treasury. Rutherford claims that he was contacted by an attorney who works (or has worked) for Rauner and that attorney said that if Rutherford pays his publicly unnamed client $300,000, no charges will be filed.

Rutherford says that Rauner is initiating a shake down effort and attempting to hurt Rutherford’s campaign for Governor.

Now, Rutherford has put out an official statement about this issue:

When a CNN Sports Dolt Tries to Explain Chicago’s Gun Problem With Laughable Results

CNN sports writer LZ Granderson tried to write a serious column about Chicago’s gun ban laws and only ended up making himself look foolish for the effort. This is what happens when sports dorks try to think on subjects outside their silly, inconsequential world of sports.

With his columns, “When a City’s Gun Laws Get Shot Down,” it seems that Granderson was trying desperately to make sense of the failure of Chicago’s gun ban to keep the city safe and it appears that he is supportive of taking away American’s Second Amendment rights merely by local government fiat. Yet even as he seemed to support gun bans, nearly every word he wrote proves that gun bans don’t work.

Sadly, after reading his mush of a column, it is almost impossible to figure out what they heck this guy’s point is supposed to be. but it does show that he is not capable of logically thinking through a problem and writing a cogent discussion of that issue.

Illinois Democrats Are Planning to Raise Income Taxes on the Middle Class

County, House of Representatives, Illinois, Illinois State Government, Liberals, Progressives, Senate, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Illinois Democrats want to put a measure on the next ballot to get Illinoisans to agree to change the state constitution to allow a progressive income tax to be instituted. But Democrats are lying to the faces of every citizen when they say that this would only raise taxes on “the rich.” The fact is a progressive rate would immediately raise taxes on every single citizen not to mention open the door for a constant jiggering and re-jiggering of the rates–a jiggering that would only and always go upward.


Illinois State Senator Michael Connelly is leading the charge to stop the progressive tax scheme in Illinois.

Currently the state constitution has an amendment that stipulates that the state will only have an across the board flat tax for everyone. It won’t be higher for some and lower for others as a graduated tax is. Those who wrote this measure in the constitution put it into law because they felt that a flat tax would help small businesses and give the state’s tax structure some stability. Now, Democrats want to throw that stability to the four winds.

To sell the idea, Democrats are pretending that this progressive income tax would only hit “the rich,” but right at the outset this is a lie. Several proposals show that it would hit everyone right at the beginning.

The good folks at Illinois Review recently reported that a large donation to Liberty Principles PAC–a group helmed by WLS talk show host Dan Proft–caused rumors to circulate that claimed that the $1.5 million donation was in response recent anti-Rauner ads being funded by a pro-union group and headed up by a one of GOP Congressman Arron Schock’s associates. Tonight, Proft is responding to the rumors.

Proft told IR that the donation by Dick Uihlein is earmarked only for state legislative races, not federal races, not the Governor’s office or other top spots. So, the donation is not intended to help get Rauner elected through efforts by Proft’s PAC.

As Proft told IR: “The investment represents Mr. Uihlein’s ongoing commitment to the economic liberty policy agenda and to Illinois state legislative candidates who share that commitment. Mr. Uihlein’s financial commitment is shared by a growing number of Liberty Principles PAC donors who understand the need for new political leadership in Springfield in order for Illinois to attract and retain businesses and grow jobs.”

Much to Sharpton’s dismay, the nearly 100% African American audience at Sharpton’s townhall roused a protest against former Obama operative and current Chicago Rahm Emanuel and the Democrat aldermen of City Hall for their decades of constant failure.

One 82-year-old area preacher even went so far as to call for tea party-styled meetings in the neighborhoods to address all going wrong in the black neighborhoods of Chicago.

Media Ignoring That Colorado School Shooter Was Stopped by Armed Security Guard

-By Warner Todd Huston

Did you know that the latest left-winger who decided to shoot up a local school was stopped in 80 seconds by an armed security guard? Few do because the media refuses to focus on this fact.

Arapaho High School shooter Karl Pierson was loaded up for a long shooting spree when he entered his high school at about 12:30 on December 13. But it was all over in seconds resulting in this admitted communist shooting himself when he was confronted by an armed Arapahoe County Sheriff’s officer. The sheriff was employed by the school as its Student Resource Officer.

The media isn’t focusing much on the true facts in this story because it doesn’t fit its narrative.

But the fact is the shooter was a left-wing criminal and was stopped by a man with a gun! These are facts that the left-wing, anti-Constitution media establishment are loath to report.


Victim Claire Davis, now in critical condition.

In fact, when it first published a story about the shooting, The Denver Post buried the fact that the boy was a self-identified socialist in the 13th paragraph of its story. But then, early the next morning, the paper erased the word “socialist” altogether and never told readers it had done so.

Why was the Post trying to shield this would be mass murderer from his own acclaimed, left-wing views?

Your guess is as good as mine. OK, who am I kidding, the left-wing paper didn’t want to identify a killer as a socialist for fear that it would make socialists look bad. But think of this: would the paper have been as reluctant to identify this creep’s political ideas if he called himself a tea partier?

Nope.They’d have been all over it.


Would be killer Karl Pierson.

The other key aspect of this story that most news outlets are trying to downplay is the fact that this kid was stopped in seconds by an armed security guard.

One of the few outlets to report on this fact was CNN, which wrote:

The deputy was yelling for people to get down and identified himself as a county deputy sheriff, Robinson said. “We know for a fact that the shooter knew that the deputy was in the immediate area and, while the deputy was containing the shooter, the shooter took his own life.”

But even at that, these facts were buried deep down in the story instead of serving as a central point of the news as it should.

Left-wingers don’t want America to know that this kid is a socialist nor do they want us all to know that an armed man in a school stopped a mass murder. This does not fit the story they want to tell the country.

During SNL’s Weekend Update segment, troupe member Kenan Thompson starred as a black Santa Klaus that riffed on some well-worn and prosaic themes. But even with the same ‘ol, same ‘ol racism topics, the segment did have a few funny lines.

When Weekend Update’s faux anchor Cecily Strong asked Thompson’s “Santa” if he was OK with people thinking that he was really white, Thompson said, “Well, a white guys taking credit for something a black guy did? I’m more used to it than okay with it.”

Is It Outrageous That Denver Newspaper Now has a Pot Reviewer? Bill O’Reilly Thinks it is

It is now legal in Colorado to sell and buy marijuana. As a result of this law, The Denver Post newspaper has hired a “pot editor.” Bill O’Reilly thinks this is an outrage.

The venerable, left-wing Denver paper hired toker Ricardo Baca to review pot sellers and write about the issues around the current legal status as the Centennial State moves forward with counties and communities figuring out how to write laws and ordinances to accommodate the new pot laws.

Well, maybe “toker” isn’t the right word to use for Baca. In an appearance on the Stephen Colbert show he noted that he doesn’t smoke weed. But he does eat it.

Fake anti-union protester.

It turns out that the viral video depicting an uncaring, screaming “Google” employee that was attacking innocent union organizers in San Francisco ended up being a union organizer attempting to make a scene, gin up emotion in favor of unions and make Google employees look like elitist jerks who hate poor people. Yes, this guy turns out to be a liar.

Unions have been protesting the private bus line that Google set up to ferry its own employees from downtown San Francisco to its facilities in the city and the unions got a big boost from a viral video that seemed to show a jerk of a Google employee telling union members to move out of the city if they can’t afford to live there.

When the video first began to make the rounds on the Internet it was presented as a mean Google guy attacking poor, innocent (and female) union organizers making Google and its employees look bad.

Georgia’s Establishment Republicans Want to Waste Millions on This, Local Tea Partiers in Strong Opposition

Local Tea Partiers Oppose This Giant, Secret Waste of Tax Dollars.

The GOP establishment in Cobb County, Georgia wants to spend upwards to $600 million in local tax dollars to help the Atlanta Braves move north of downtown Atlanta. They say it will bring new development and increased economic activity to the area. Tea Partiers, however, say this is a waste of tax dollars and it isn’t the government’s job to join in capitalist projects.

The establishment GOP says their argument is simple. As detailed by the AP, Cobb County Commission Chairman Tim Lee and his supporters say that “almost $400 million in county bonds and immediate infrastructure improvements, with debt payments approaching $600 million over 30 years–will generate enough economic activity and, thus, tax revenue to justify the spending.”

Lee imagines that this huge outlay of tax money is a “home run” for his county. Local tea party leaders thoroughly disagree.

This is all “appalling hypocrisy” and “arrogance” on behalf of the county operatives, says Atlanta Tea Party Leader Debbie Dooley.

A Spate of Pro and Anti William Kelly News Making the Rounds

December 10, 2013 | Filed Under Campaign Finance, Chicago, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Illinois, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

Apparently political gadflay William J. Kelly has become the subject of political intrigue this month with a wave of pro and anti Kelly info making its way to my email inbox. I have no clue why Kelly is suddenly a hot topic, but it is what it is.

OK, get ready to get into the weeds on all this as this entry is going to be a long one…

Let’s start out with the pro Kelly stuff.

So, I was sent an email with some info about donations to one of Kelly’s many campaigns and after that I began getting other emails apparently trying to brush aside any concerns over those donations.

Someone apparently on the pro-Kelly side was making sure I was sent an email with a link to a 2012 piece on a site with the odd name of the “Internet Troll Safety Center.”

That blog entry was a bit quixotic. On one hand it says that political operative Doug Ibendahl was “paid by Otto Engineer’s Jack Roeser to smear William Kelly, Kelly’s fiancé Laura Kelly, and Kelly’s deceased father, William F. Kelly.”
