This just breaking now in Chicago and is being reported on several local TV Stations and WLS-AM Talk Radio:

Occupy Chicago was raided early this morning based on a tip that the group was planning violence to kick off the NATO summit in Chicago. 

Gee, no surprise there.

Occupy Chicago leaders are claiming that the police found “beer making materials” and that no one was arrested.

Chicago Police Chief Gary McCarthy appeared on WLS-AM this morning, the “Don and Roma” show and outright scoffed at the suggestion that “Occupy Chicago” members were arrested for having “beer making materials.” 

There have been numerous arrests at the “Occupy Chicago” location this morning, located in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.  We’re sure of one thing: they weren’t arrested for having “beer making materials” since such items are sold openly in liquor stores, gift stores, and often in several Whole Foods and Trader Jack’s stores across the Chicago area.  “Beer making materials” aren’t illegal.  Making molotov cocktails and having those components in one’s possession however, is.

More on this story as it develops.


Just in time for the NATO Summit.  Add this to the list of Military Planes, Attack Helicopters, heavily armed Federal Guards, and Chicago Police in riot gear, and on horseback.

No, they're not spying on us America.  They're "monitoring" us.

Obama Forgets Magnitude of Recession

And Conveniently Ignores Fact He Made It Worse!

In this video, Barack Hussein Obama admits he forgets about how bad the recession in this country truly is.  In fact, Obama says it “was” bad. 

Who in their right mind believes we’re out of the recession?  Anyone?

Obama also finally admits that 800,000 jobs were lost the month he took office (and another near 2,000,000 in his first six months!) but doesn’t say why those jobs were lost.

Let me tell you: Businesses across the country small and large recognize a Socialist when they see one.  They stopped hiring because they knew the couldn’t afford the taxes, regulation, and other financial burdens this “President” has placed on them.

Want a job America?  Dump Obama.  It really is just that simple.

Obama Comes Out of Closet

Yesterday's "surprise announcement" by Barack Hussein Obama that he believes gay's "should" be allowed to marry comes as no surprise to those of us who live in the People's Socialist Repulik of Illinois.  We've known this about Obama for years.

In 1996, Obama's "evolving" view on the topic of gay marriage was that they "should" be allowed to get married.  The "compromise" solution in his eyes were what he called protected civil unions.

In 2004 as Obama sought higher political office in Illinois, Obama changed his stance to be against gay marriage and against civil unions. 

Why the change between 1996 and 2004?  Simple: Jeremiah Wright.  I guess even in Jeremiah Wright's whacked-out world view that blurs the line between black liberation theology and Christianity, some things are so abhorrent that they cannot be endorsed.  In Jeremiah Wright's world view, homosexuality and gay "marriage" is one of those things.

In the 2008 election cycle, Barack Hussein Obama stated he was in favor of what he termed "traditional" marriage, defining it as between a man and a woman.  Now in 2012 that view has changed again in Obama's latest pronouncement that gays "should" be able to marry.

In analyzing Obama's pronouncement, he once again tries to be all things to all people, however this time it doesn't appear to be working.  Even Gawker yesterday called Obama's "coming out" on the issue of gay "marriage" to be "complete bullshit."

Obama, trying to fabricate a "what would Jesus do?" claimed his on again/off again/on again support of gay "marriage" was him applying his "Christian" faith treating others as he himself would like to be treated.

Lest we forget the lesson that Jesus taught to the woman at the well and Mary Magdalene of "go and sin no more" here we have yet another example of Jeremia Wright's influence on Obama's theo-political world view.

He's pissed off the gays.  He's once again alienated the Christian faithful.  The fact that most black churche's are virulently anti-homosexual, Obama's sure to lose some support here as well. 

This doesn't end well for Obama.

The Truth About The French, Greek Elections

The lamestream media is going into over-drive here in the United States spinning an tangled web of lies designed deceive the American Public about the French and Greek elections, and their relation to Obama economic policies.

To hear the media in the U.S. tell it, voters in France and Greece have rejected "Austerity measures" and instead favor more government spending as a solution to the ills of the French, Greek and larger EU economy. To hear incoming French President Hollande tell it, the way to prosperity is to hike income taxes on anyone making more than $1 million Euro's up to 75%, thereby enabling more Government spending.

Facts are always pesky things, so let's put them on the table right now.

First, there have been no Austerity programs implemented anywhere in the EU. Not a single budget cut has been made in either Greece or France. Rather, Greece has taken two "bailouts" largely on the backs of German taxpayers to the tune of $80,000,000,000 Euro's, which is roughly triple that of the Greek economy as a whole. In return, the Greek Government hasn't cut a single program or government "benefit", rather the social spending and government benefits have continued unabated and Greece now finds itself in the position of getting ready to ask for a third bailout and is on the verge of expulsion from the EU. Where are the budget cuts, and where's the accountability for wasting $80,000,000,000 Euro's, largely from German taxpayers?

Second, Sarkozy for all his faults at least saw what was happening in Greece and tried preventing it in France. The current government budget of France is just over 80% of the country's total economic output for a single year. Contrast that to the United States in which our Government's spending has exceeded 100% of economic output for a single year!

Sarkozy recognized the path France was on and seeing the results of excessive government spending in Greece decided to change course and abandon some of his largely Socialist tendencies. Sarkozy also recognized that he couldn't tax his way out of the problem as the problem was in fact too much government spending. Enter Sarkozy's proposal to increase the overly generous retirement age by two years. The average Frenchman retires at age 55, often with full salary and pension benefits. Sarkozy proposed to increase that to 57 years of age. Sarkozy proposed no changes in tax rates, and no cuts in Government spending or benefits. The country goes into an uproar over a two year increase in the retirement age.

Enter Francois Hollande who promised to roll back all austerity programs and increase government spending (read that: benefits) to "grow" the economy by raising taxes to 75% on the "wealthy." Sound familiar?

While the Obama Administration likes to ignore decades of economic data that shows the way to growth through reduced government spending and reduced taxes that actually increase revenue to the Government, they along with their willing whores in the lamestream media point to one single election event in France as "validation" of Obama spending $6.2 TRILLION dollars and driving up the national debt to "grow" the economy.

Again, facts are pesky things so let's put some more on the table.

First, Government Spending in the U.S. has not grown the economy. There are three million less jobs today, than there was when Obama first took office. Many of those jobs have moved overseas and will never come back. In fact, the Bureau of Labor & Statistics at Obama's behest has stopped counting these jobs in total, which has artificially reduced the unemployment rate painting a false-positive picture of the economy.

Second, the Obama Administration is cooking the books on unemployment. Even the liberal left-wing CNN reported last Thursday evening that the "real" unemployment rate in the United States is closer to 11-12%. God Bless CNN for at least trying to tell the truth this time, the reality is the Obama Administration changed how unemployment numbers are calculated, using the old forumla that applied to Clinton through Bush, the actual rate is closer to 15-16%.

Third, the path we're currently on is not sustainable. If a Government could spend it's way to economic prosperity, then why isn't Greece an economic super-power right now? After all, the Greek Government received bailouts equivalent to three times their annual economic output and spent it all. Where's Greece's economic activity? Still contracting, by an annual rate of 18-20%, that's where.

Workforce participation, that is the percentage of working age adults capable and eligible to work who want jobs, has fallen to a 40 year low. As a percentage of the American population, the Bureau of Labor & Statistics is reporting that fewer American's are working and carrying the tax burden now than during the last four decades. These folks have given up and stopped looking for work and are applying in massive numbers for Social Security Disability and other Government "benefits" to survive. That means two things: first the tax burden on those who remain working has increased and second, there are more tax CONSUMERS in this country than there are actual net TAX PAYERS. This scenario just isn't sustainable despire the spin from the Obama Administration and their willing prostitutes in the media.
The real message from Greece and France my friends is this: Once one is subjogated to dependence on the Government for their daily sustinence and existence, they will not allow those "benefits" to be taken away from them. Obama has understood this message for a long, long time dating back to his days as a Community Organizer in Chicago. It is the heart of Obama's class warfare, dividing up American's along every racial, economic and gender line he can find.

The real question is this: Will American's look at the failed model in Europe and recognize that Government simply cannot be all things to all people, and put Government back in it's proper limited role, or will we go down the same failed path of European Socialist countries?

Alexis De Toqueville, ironically a Frenchman once said "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."

The problem with Socialism is as Margaret Thatcher once stated is that it "only works until you run out of other people's money."

We're out of money and rapidly running out of time. It should be self evident that the path we're on isn't sustainable, and that the ending isn't going to be pretty for Greece, France, and several other European Socilist model countries (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Spain.)

More than sixty years of economic data tells us that the way back to prosperity is reducing government spending, and reducing taxes to spur economic growth. No matter how the Obama Administration tries spinning one Election event as justification for it's over-taxing, over-spending, Government interventionist policies, nothing changes sixty years of economic data and fact.

Media Fawning While Country Rots

It just sickens me that the lamestream media is fawning all over the "Obama's first love" story while the country rots.

What sickens me further are those who further this story in their daily discussions.  Doesn't this country have some serious, substantial issues to talk about other than Obama's first girlfriend?

How about the near $6 TRILLION dollars in debt he's incurred, more than the total debt incurred during the first 221 years of this country?

The ObamaCare failure anyone?  We're less than 30 days from the Supreme Court throwing out this "President's" signature legislation.  No other President in the history of this country has suffered such a legislative setback by having their own legislation declared Un-Constitutional.

Don't we still have a deficit problem exceeding $1.3 TRILLION dollars annually?

How about persistently high unemployment, at it's highest rate for the longest period of time, exceeding that of the Great Depression!

And what about Obama's economic policies which have furthered the great recession?  This "President" has meddled in and screwed up everything from economic development and growth to energy.  Here in Illinois alone, three coal-fired power plants that service more than 300,000 homes are being shut down in June and there's no "spare capacity" elsewhere in the state to pick up the slack.

I can easily list another 10-20 serious issues this country faces, yet the lamestream media is successfully diverting the attention of what we here in Illinois call "low information voters" away from these important and Obama's failed policies all in the name of protecting Obama from himself.

It sickens me.

NATO G8 Summit in Chicago Update

To my friends and family:

As many of you know, I work in what is called the "red zone" in Chicago's South Loop area, otherwise known as the Financial District. Yesterday when I arrived at work there were heavily armed Federal "Guards" outside the building I work in, a heavy Chicago Police presence, a helicopter flying overhead and I swear I saw a sniper on one rooftop from my office window. (I took a picture of that, but think better of posting it.)

None of this comforts me or makes me feel any safer. In fact, quite the opposite. The escalation of heavily armed guard and police presence is very disconcerting. As the original Mayor Daley the 1st once said: "The policeman isn't here to create disorder, the policeman is here to preserve disorder!" I believe that.

If I suddenly disappear, I was either caught up in the riots and thrown in jail along with these hoodlums/idiots/communists that are protesting, trampled to death in the ensuing riots, or shot by some ill-trained heavily armed Federal Agent or trigger-happy Chicago Cop.

All I want to do is go to work and come home in peace every day. None of the actors described above is allowing me to do that. If I suddenly disappear, rest assured one of the three things above happened to me. Therefore, finding me should be easy: Look in one of the following jails: Cook County, Will County, Statesville. If I'm not found there, I'll likely be in the Cook County Morgue, stacked up with the other bodies that they don't have room for. With my luck, I'll be on the bottom of the last pile someone looks in.

I bid you all Adieu.
