CDC Refusing to Divulge Where 6 Patients Tested for Ebola are in the US

On Tuesday, it was reported that the Centers for Disease Control had tested six patients across the nation for the Ebola virus. But, even as the CDC has admitted testing these six patients the agency is refusing to inform the nation about just where all those suspected cases of Ebola are located.

After some confusion on August 5 where reports seemed to indicate that there were six patients in New York being tested for Ebola, I revealed on Breitbart that, while the CDC did say there were six patients being tested, the agency didn’t locate them all in New York. It became clear that the initial stories were incorrect and that it wasn’t six in New York but six spread out across the country.

Illinois Has Coolest July on Record, Cool Summer Leaves New Yorkers With ‘Disorders’

The Illinois state climatologist reported on Friday that the preliminary assessment of last month’s temperatures tied the record for the coolest July in recorded history but that as the data is further quantified it will likely break the record.

State Climatologist Jim Angel reported that the statewide average temperature in July was 70.3 degrees which tied the record low set in 2009.

July started with temperatures between 4 and 8 degrees below normal throughout the Midwest

Democrat Staffer Threatens Writer With Attack By IRS

-By Warner Todd Huston

Well, one American found out that calling a Congresscritter could result in an attack on him by the IRS just because he had the gall to call and ask questions.

A writer for PJ Media called the office of Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee and instead of being treated professionally by this woman’s staffers, the writer was called names and his questions were ignored.

The writer called the Democrat’s office because on the floor of Congress she uttered an outright lie and the writer was seeking a comment on the incident.

On July 30, Jackson Lee said that Democrats “did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had the authority.”

Chicago Muslim Calls for Jihad Against Jews in Gaza

It has been revealed that Muslim Imam in a Chicago mosque has been calling for Chicago Muslims to go wage jihad against the Jews by flying to Gaza to join the fighting there.

Video of Sheik Mohamed Elimam of the Chicago Islamic Center has come to light showing this “religious” leader urging his followers to go kill Jews in a series of July sermons.

As Breitbart’s Joel Pollak reports, in one excerpt, Elimam says: “Oh, those of you who want to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah, Palestine is calling you and Gaza is crying out for your help. If you are true believers, real mujahideen, hasten to Palestine.”

In another he says that Israel should be dismantled and the Jews sent “back to their countries.”

Happy Birthday Milton Friedman: His 7 Most Notable Quotes

July 31, 2014 | Filed Under Budget, Business, Capitalism, Chicago, Economy/Finances, Education, Free Trade, Jobs, Keynesian, Money, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | No Comments

-By Rob Nikolewski

Harry Truman once complained he wanted to find a one-handed economist because he was tired of asking a direct question of those on his economic team, only to have them say, “On the one hand … but on the other hand.”

If there was one hand that noted economist Milton Friedman favored, it was the “invisible hand” of the free market.

Today marks the 102nd anniversary of Friedman’s birth. He died in 2006, but during his long career Friedman won over admirers and drove left-of-center critics crazy with his direct and eloquent defense of capitalism.

Friedman won the Nobel Prize in economics in 1976. But perhaps his greatest influence was nudging people who otherwise may have had little interest in the “dismal science” of economics to look at the world through a new set of eyes and question their assumptions.

Unions Scold School For Not Celebrating Cop Killer

A group of unions in California have gotten together to criticize the Oakland Unified School District for refusing to allow a lesson plan to appear on its website that compares murderer Mumia Abu-Jamal to civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The “Urban Dreams” lesson plan tells students to “critically examine a possible parallel between Martin Luther King, Jr., and someone else many believe is currently targeted by the U.S. government, Mumia Abu-Jamal.”

The Oakland school district decided to jettison the lesson plan because it lionized a cop killer and criticized the police. Its comparison of the murderer to King was especially galling.

But the unions had an opposing opinion on the efficacy of a lesson plan that celebrates a murderer as someone “just like” beloved civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has a great idea. He wants Obama to bring all the illegals to Illinois! In a state that sits at the bottom of every metric that makes a successful state–rampant unemployment, lowest job creation, highest debt, biggest pension crisis, worst business climate–Pat Quinn wants to import thousands of people who have no jobs and no prospects for one, people with no education, and people possibly full of diseases right here to the Land of Lincoln.

On Friday evening after the news day was done, Quinn announced that he is prepared to give as many illegals as Obama can spare a place to stay in Illinois.

During the announcement, Quinn spokesman Grant Klintzman said, “If a location is needed we are prepared to aid the federal government in finding a suitable one.”

The event was spent with the little guestlets (I mean the kiddies, there) getting a bunch of great give aways. They also got a chance to meet some famous bear personages such as Winnie The Pooh, Paddington Bear, and the Care Bears.

This is what happens when you allow Muslims to think they can impose their own laws on members of their community. In Philadelphia a local Muslim leader tried to carry out Sharia law and chop off a man’s hand after he was accused of stealing money from the Mosque.

As Reuters reports, ” Two men described as leaders of a Philadelphia mosque were accused of trying to cut off the hand of a suspected thief, whose wrist was sliced so deeply it required hospital treatment, police said on Friday.”

This is what happens when you allow these primitive, backwards people to imagine they can do whatever they want when they come here. This is what happens when you make them feel they don’t have to follow our laws.

Hey, Chicago: Detroit Police Chief Says More Guns is Good

Chicago, Illinois is losing at least 3 to 4 citizens every weekend to violence with upwards to 25 shot. EVERY weekend. Chicago pols, the city’s police superintendent, and state Democrats say we need to ban guns to “fix” the problem. But the Detroit Chief of Police says an armed citizenry is making HIS city safer. Chicago could learn a lesson, here.

According to the Detroit News, Chief James Craig credited the fall in crime in the Motor City to the fact that more citizens are armed these days.

Detroit has experienced 37 percent fewer robberies in 2014 than during the same period last year, 22 percent fewer break-ins of businesses and homes, and 30 percent fewer carjackings. Craig attributed the drop to better police work and criminals being reluctant to prey on citizens who may be carrying guns.

“Criminals are getting the message that good Detroiters are armed and will use that weapon,” said Craig, who has repeatedly said he believes armed citizens deter crime. “I don’t want to take away from the good work our investigators are doing, but I think part of the drop in crime, and robberies in particular, is because criminals are thinking twice that citizens could be armed.”

If Chicago Would Vote for Commie Karen Lewis, They Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Vote at All

A new poll of likely Chicago voters seems to find that Mayor Rahm Emanuel is in bad shape for his re-election coming up next year. The poll shows that two other candidates are far and away more popular than the incumbent mayor. One of those two is Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis, a woman who is nearly an out and proud communist. But, if Chicagoans would vote for Lewis, they don’t deserve the vote at all.

This new Chicago Sun-Times poll shows Emanuel losing–and badly–to two other possible mayoral candidates in next year’s election. The biggest disparity is that between the mayor and Current Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. She really slams Emanuel beating him 55 percent to 31 percent in the poll.

Preckwinkle has made no moves at all to run against Emanuel and insists she won’t. Still, rumors abound that she will throw her hat in the ring, anyway.

To be honest, it really is no surprise that Emanuel is finding low favorables in polling this far out from the election. Mayor Emanuel has failed in many respects as Chicago’s mayor. He has done nothing at all to address the mounting pension crisis, spending is still skyrocketing, he’s solved none of the mess that previous mayor Richie Daley left him, and worse of all violence in the city has soared to never before seen rates of blood shed.

I have been chronicling all the major failures of the once great state of Illinois and this week we have yet another one. A new tabulation of private sector job creation finds that Illinois created a dismal 500 non-government jobs in 2013 making it the single worst state in the Midwest and almost the worst in the country (again).

The Illinois Policy Institute put out its jobs report card recently and found Illinois to be one of the worst of the worst. It was the worst of the Midwestern region and the second worst in the whole country.

Several years ago the Governor of Illinois decided with a fiat decision to hand his union buddies millions of free taxpayer dollars by suddenly forcing all private in-home healthcare workers to be unionized without their knowledge or approval. Today the U.S. Supreme Court said that Illinois was not allowed to do this.

The year was 2003 and Democrat Rod Blagojevich–who later went to jail for corruption–was the governor who decided that all Illinois citizens who get a stipend from the state to help them take care of their mentally and/or physically disabled family member must be unionized.

Illinois has earned its spot as the state with the worst GDP in the entire Midwest. So, once again we find that Illinois turns out to be one of the worst states in the country for nearly any and every metric that makes a successful state.

Michael Lucci of the Illinois Policy Institute pointed out in a recent blog post that Illinois ranks only above Missouri as the worst for GDP growth among the 12 Midwestern states in the survey.

“Illinois recorded the second-worst growth in gross domestic product of any state in the Midwest,” Lucci wrote, “according to this week’s release from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The Illinois economy grew by just 0.9 percent in 2013. Only Missouri grew slower, at a sluggish 0.8 percent.”

WIND Kicks Joe Walsh Off The Air, Station Refused to Allow Honest Discussion of Racism

Former Congressman Joe Walsh joined WIND AM 560 not long after he left Congress and has been doing a great, fearless job on the air. The station was even beginning to look into syndicating him. But now, because he tried to have an honest discussion about racism, the station got cold feet and suspended him until further notice.

Here is some of what the Chicago Sun-Times said today

According to posts on former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh’s Twitter account Thursday night, the conservative radio talk-show host was kicked off the air on WIND-AM (560) for using racial slurs while trying to have a discussion about racial slurs.

In a series of tweets posted about 7 p.m., Walsh says: “Just got kicked off the air until further notice. Tried to have honest discussion about racist terms and management censored my language.”

And: “I’m trying to have an honest, adult conversations about words without resorting to alphabet soup phrases (C-word, N-word, etc).”

The posts said the discussion involved the ethical debate about the name of the pro football team in Washington, D.C.: the Redskins.

Joe’s show is from 5PM to 8PM weekdays.

You can follow Joe on Twitter at https://@WalshFreedom.

The University of Chicago Needs Some Occupy Wall Street

If you’ll recall, the brief but noisy Occupy Wall street movement was all about protesting the “One Percent,” those evil rich folks that apparently return nothing to the nation. Well a look at the compensation of those at the University of Chicago in President Obama’s home city shows that the Occupy folks were protesting the wrong people! It looks like the one percent reside at the UofC.

A very in depth article by David Francis Mihalyfy reveals what he calls a university mired in outsized compensation “hidden by a PR machine, funded by growing tuition and debt, and allocated despite questionable job performance”

Mihalyfy serves up this damning assessment of the university in Obama’s Chicago:

SHOCK REPORT: Ohio TV Station Actually Calls Black Violence ‘Hate Crimes’

-By Warner Todd Huston

In nearly every big city in America gangs of black youths have been roaming through the city searching out white people to beat and sometimes kill. A major book chronicling these “hate crimes” was published a few years ago but other than that the media has ignored the truth for fear of being called “racists.” But one TV news station has told the truth, these crimes fit the mold of a “hate crime” like no other.

I interviewed the author of the book White Girl Bleed A Lot for Breitbart in November of last year, but the crimes Colin Flaherty described in his book didn’t stop in 2013. Now a Cincinnati, Ohio TV news outfit has done what no other TV news has done, pointed out that these crimes are based in black racism.

The anchor there is Rob Braun of Channel 12 News, WKRC in Cincy. Rob is a member of a major media family in Cincinnati. His dad, Bob Braun, was famous in the region for hosting a morning show for decades in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Bob’s nephew, Bucks Braun was a major radio personality in Dayton, Ohio. I mention all this to note that Rob is not an inconsequential figure in Cincinnati.

But during this schmaltzy blubber fest Clinton waxed historical for the crowd.

Cops Murdered: ‘The Beginning of the Revolution’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Saying “this is the beginning of the revolution,” a couple gunned down two Las Vegas police officers as they ate lunch last weekend. The pair killed themselves in a WalMart not long afterward. As this incident was reported, it occurred to me that I have been warning of this horrible state of affairs, and I am afraid this is not going to be a one-off incident.

As we learn more of the pair of shooters we find that they have a history of seeing government as an enemy to the people. But they aren’t alone.

In the after math as police talked to the media about the shootings, Sheriff Doug Gillespie told the media, “What precipitated this event, we do not know. My officers were simply having lunch.”

But is the sheriff right? Is this incident really such a surprise?

The shootings that ended inside a Las Vegas WalMart with a pair of murderers insisting that they were killing “law enforcement” officers as a means to start a revolution is exactly the sort of thing I have warned about many times.

Firstly, we need to realize this is not a “gun” problem. This is a government problem.

This time stormtroopers in Atlanta threw a flashbang grenade into the lap of a baby in her crib. The thing exploded and gave the baby third degree burns on its face, hands and chest. And who knows if the explosion damaged the child’s eyes and ears.

The cops’ excuse? Gosh we didn’t know that there were babies in the house. We didn’t see no toys er nuthin.

“There was no clothes, no toys, nothing to indicate that there was children present in the home. If there had been then we’d have done something different,” Cornelia police chief Rick Darby told the Atlanta media.

Apparently police are now cruising the web looking for people who make claims that leads one to believe they could or might or perhaps broke some jackbooted rule, regulation or law and then they are punishing them through the U.S. mails on this hearsay evidence.

The police department of a Chicago area forest preserve district used a local woman’s social media post as a basis to send her a citation in the mail after she made a Facebook post about a county park.

The woman says she wrote a Facebook post that was misinterpreted by Will County forest preserve police as an admission that she was violating park rules. It wasn’t long after she posted her comment that she received a notice of violation in the mail and told she owed the county a fine for illegal use of a park.

A judge in Illinois refused to delay the corruption trial of Democrat Derrick Smith, a Chicago-area State Representative, so he could vote yes on an upcoming tax hike bill. This will hurt the Democrats’ push to make a temporary tax hike permanent.

U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman didn’t say that Democrat House Speaker Michael Madigan ordered the request that she delay the trial, but Madigan said that without Smith’s vote he will have trouble passing the tax hike.

Smith made the request of a delay so that he could vote for the tax hike but he also claimed that he had a “back injury” from a recent car accident. The judge said that Smith had never complained about any injuries in the several court appearances since the accident, so she found the claim unimpressive.

Bankrupt Illinois Spent $12 Million on Medicaid for Dead People

Illinois is constantly at the bottom in every metric that measures our most successful states. It is perennially either the 48th, 49th, or 50th worst state in every category. And now we learn that the state is spending up to $12 million a year that it doesn’t have on Medicaid for people who are dead! Can this state become more of a joke?

The Associated Press recently filed a Freedom of Information Act request and uncovered a disturbing memo from the Illinois state auditor.

“State auditors identified overpayments for services to roughly 2,900 people after the date of their deaths,” the AP wrote.

This was more evidence that Obama’s claims that Democrats are fixing the Medicaid enrollment system is a failure.

Obama Library Starts Off With $100 Million in Corruption in Chicago

Why is it not a surprise that the first moves to make Chicago the home of the Barack Hussein Obama Presidential Library are born in corruption? But I suppose it is a fitting way to start a library for one of the biggest failure and most corrupt politicians ever to sit in the White House.

In the most bankrupt state in the union the Illinois Democrat Party floated the idea of using $100 million in taxpayer dollars to set up the BO Library and the way they went about it all was 100 percent corruption.

Illinois Democrats are desperate to have Chicago named as the site of the Obama Presidential Library, so desperate they pulled a sneaky “off-site” vote to spend $100 million in tax dollars on its construction. But the underhanded vote and the unfunded expenditure of millions the state doesn’t have had Democrats running for cover after politicians, the media, and the voters erupted in criticism of the move.

The snap decision to throw $100 million tax dollars at a project that isn’t even assured came in for heavy criticism in a state that has one of the worst budget overruns in the country. But the way the decision was made and the many conflicts of interest involved in the campaigning for the library also raised eyebrows all across the state.

One such conflict is that the woman who heads the Illinois Arts Council Agency is the wife of the Speaker of the Illinois House, Democrat Michael Madigan. Shirley Madigan expects to have a big role in the planning and construction of an Obama Presidential Library, a project of which her politician husband is a big booster.

Now, usually when a state is dissed it is dissed by people from outside the state. With the usual hometown bravado, and all, denizens of a state used to stick up for their own in the face of criticism. But a new poll finds that Illinois is so bad, even people that live there say it sucks.

America is a land of polls, for sure, but this poll is a particularly telling one. The Gallup polling firm asked residents of the 50 states (or the 57 states if you are our clueless President) what they thought about their own home states. It turns out that Montanans really love their state. But Illinois and Rhode Island? Not so much.

The top five states where residents are happy to live right where they are living are Montana (77% of residents love the place), Alaska (also 77%), Utah (70%), Wyoming (69%), and Texas (68%).

Further, if you ask everyone the general question of where the best place to live is, Texas wins, followed by Alaska then Hawaii.

Illinois Congressman Brad Schneider Refuses to Stand & Recite Pledge of Allegiance

Witnesses say that at a recent anti-gun forum Democrat Congressman Brad Schneider (10th District, Illinois) strangely reused to stand up and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Democrat State Rep. Scott Drury sponsored an April 23 forum about gun violence the Deerfield Park City Hall, one of Chicago’s northern suburbs. Congressman Schneider was an invited co-host for the event.

The story was first reported by a local blogger named Louis Atsaves on his Common Sense in Illinois 10th blog.

“According to four different individuals reporting on Facebook this morning,” Atsaves wrote, “Congressman Schneider refused to stand during the pledge of allegiance.”

Atsaves put out a call to anyone who attended the event to forward any photos of video of the incident.He also heard from several others after he made his initial blog post that Schneider did refuse to participate in the Pledge.

But a commenter on Atsaves’ site says he also witnessed such an incident with Congressman Schneider.

“I was at an overflow meeting at Deerfield City Hall last night concerning Illinois Conceal Carry Law. At the beginning of the meeting, Congressman Brad Schneider was asked to open the public meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, he refused twice to do so. At this point the audience then stood up and recited The Pledge at the top of their voices, including the phrase ‘under God’,” a commenter named Charles Van Eeckhout wrote.

The Congressman refused to comment when Illinois Review asked for a comment on the claims.

Eric Khon Slams Rich Miller as Anti-Capitalist

April 18, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Budget, Business, Capitalism, Chicago, Crony Capitalism, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Illinois, Illinois State Government, Liberals, Progressives, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

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.
