South Side of Chicago 2016

EPAphotosouthChicago - Copy

How ironic. The same weekend that a “romantic comedy” about the courtship of Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson opened in cinemas, the cousin of a Chicago Bulls player was gunned down in the city. Both events took place on Chicago’s South Side. Decades apart, of course.

The murder victim was a 32-year-old mother who, it is said, was on her way to register her children for the new school year. As she pushed her baby in a stroller, gunmen shot wildly, hitting her twice and killing her. (May she rest in peace and condolences to her family.) The killer was aiming at someone else, police say.

Two brothers were arrested for the crime; both have lengthy rap sheets and both were, for some inexplicable reason, free to walk the streets and continue wreaking havoc upon innocent people.

The movie about the Obamas, Southside with You, is critically acclaimed, garnering a 93% approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Would anyone expect different, given today’s politically correct climate?

The movie was produced by a “pal” of the Obamas. Again, what else would anyone expect?

In my opinion, this sounds like a “must not see,” but it’s up to you how you spend your money.  Although highly praised by paid critics, the movie seems to have grossed only about $3 million so far at the box office.

The plot is supposedly a “faithful” depiction of the tall tale we were told about the couple’s first date, including the sticky, sickeningly sweet fable about the “chocolate kiss.”

The story follows their day-long date across the South Side of Chicago. One reviewer (in comments) said

It’s just two people walking and talking.

Given the current state of the South Side of Chicago, if this date took place today, the lovers would likely be running and screaming, not walking and talking.

The Obama home town is setting a record pace for murders this year:

 The city is on track to have 700 murders in 2016, Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said Wednesday. That would be the highest number of homicides in Chicago in nearly 20 years.

Homicides have already nearly doubled this year, with more than 93 murders since the start of January. There were only 52 murders in all of January and February last year.

If the city does have 700 or more homicides this year, it will be the highest number of murders since 1998, when 704 people were killed.

On cue, Donald Trump is being roundly criticized by progressives and the mainstream media for “politicizing” the death of Dwyane Wade’s cousin. The aforementioned fear that Trump’s outreach to the black community will work, especially since, unlike Hillary Clinton, Trump is at least talking about the crime problem in inner city communities.

Aren’t progressives like Clinton the ones who always clamor for these tough sorts of “conversations”?

Am I the only one who believes this movie about the Obamas is the opening salvo, the first “independent” campaign ad, for a future Michelle Obama presidency, in the same way that Obama’s fabulous, fictional biography was the opening salvo for his own national political career?

No matter who wins in November, look for the Obamas to begin campaigning for their own return to the White House, whether in 2020 or 2024, as soon as they leave in January.

Watch out, whether you’re on the South Side of Chicago or not.

  1. AMERICA WILL ROCK AGAIN …TRUMP!!!!

    • They go on and on and on about the lack of a deportation force to deal with the 11 million, which in their opinion means he “softened” his stance. HOWEVER, anybody with eyes to see and a brain to think will realize that his 10-step plan does it for him, without the need for any deportation force. IF you deport all the CRIMINAL illegal aliens (not considering that all are criminals, but he means those that have committed additional crimes here) and IF you actually use E-Verify, then most of the so-called law-abiding illegals will SELF-DEPORT. That’s why he said that first you build the wall, STOP further illegal immigration, hire the extra border patrol and LET THEM DO THE JOB THEY’RE PAID TO DO, then whoever’s left can be dealt with then.

      So think about it: IF E-Verify is enforced, if ALL our laws are enforced, then illegals, whether typically “law-abiding” or not, CAN’T WORK AND CAN’T COLLECT SOCIAL BENEFITS, so then what will they do? They’re going to GO HOME where they will be able to work and will be able, if they can’t work, to get on the dole in Mexico. THEN, as Trump said, they can apply to come back and go to the back of the line to compete with the truly law-abiding people who’ve been waiting patiently in line.

      As far as them saying the wall will never be built because it’s too costly, tell me: Which country is wealthier, Hungary or the USA? Hungary built a fence that WORKED and they’re now in the process of building it up more to ensure that it works even better than before. But it stopped the illegal refugee invasion and they built the danged fence/wall in a matter of months. IF Hungarians can do it, then so can we. Added plus: it creates jobs for AMERICAN workers.

  2. THERE WILL BE NO AMNESTY: President Donald Trump

    Our enforcement priorities will include removing criminals, gang members,

    security threats, visa overstays, public charges – that is, those relying on

    public welfare or straining the safety net, along with millions of recent illegal

    arrivals and overstays who’ve come here under the current Administration.

  4. this EMBARR’ASS’MENT ….NEEDS 2 TAKE A LONG HARD LOOK
    in a MIRROR …..FAST! … what a real DICKSTER he & LYIN’ HILL

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/sep/1/tim-kaine-donald-trump-chickened-out-meeting-mexic/

    • The media seems rather SPEECH less today, don’t they? I don’t think they know what to say about it. He ROCKED that speech. He ROCKED the appearance in Mexico, too. I think they’re terrified at this point. WAIT until he ROCKS the debates. He’s going to ROCK Ms. Hillary back on her ample bum.

      • DITTO ^^^^ …. WE SHALL SEE …won’t WTP!
        I CAN’T WAIT 4 “A STRONG MAN” … 2 BE OUR N E X T
        PRESIDENT .. & NOT a WOMAN … like A CLINTON RE-TREAD!
        the sad thing is ALL the WASTED $$$ MONEY they gave & gave

      • And I can’t wait to see that Miri. 😆

        • Well, me, too, with qualification. Did you see the moderators? Anderson Cooper, Martha Radditz (sp?), Chris Wallace, and Lester Holt. Not much promise for a FAIR SHAKE for Trump there, with the POSSIBLE exception of Wallace, although according to CTH he is/was in on the “get rid of Trump” orders all the FOX folks got from Murdoch. Kelly, of course, went along when she sandbagged Trump with the stupid question about how he treats women. She, btw, got a $6,000,000 book deal out of it.

    • Wow. Very interesting. And here I thought he was just a biased, dishonest, crummy “journalist” with white guilt, who was in the tank for a fellow progressive. I wonder: Did the two red diaper babies know each other for decades? Is that why Maraniss was “chosen” to be the bio writer? When did Kincaid learn this and why tell us NOW?

  7. ~ First Arab-American President, NOT the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother’s side and 43.75% Arabic & 6.25% African Negro from his father’s side. While Barack Hussein Obama’s father was from Kenya, his father’s family was mainly Arabs. Barack Hussein Obama’s father was only 12.5% African Negro & 87.5% Arab (his father’s birth certificate even states he’s Arab, not African Negro).

  9. This is interesting: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3763658/Gunman-shoots-two-people-outside-one-Clintons-favorite-delis-mile-family-home.html

    A doctor is ambushed and shot less than a mile from the Clinton’s NY home. He survived, thank goodness. But look at his specialties:

    “Charney [the VICTIM] is one of the country’s leading doctors. As well as being dean of Mount Sinai’s medical school, he is a professor of psychiatry, neuroscience and pharmacology and systems therapeutics at the school.

    His primary work has been in psychiatry, and has seen him develop medical treatments for schizophrenia and depression.

    He holds a string of awards for his work and has also been involved in research post-traumatic disorder in veterans.

    Chao, [the SHOOTER] who was educated at Peking Union Medical College, in Beijing, China, had been a pioneer of gene-based therapy for both hemophilia, a condition in which the blood does not clot properly, and muscular dystrophy, which causes muscle wasting. [Now this is the shooter. Keep in mind Hillary’s supposed genetically based blood clotting disorder and rumors that she has Parkinson’s, MS, or some other NEUROLOGICAL disorder. She may have known both or either doctor, professionally or personally, and either or both might have known MUCH about her health.]

    In 2002, when he was a researcher at the University of North Carolina, he told BBC News that work he was involved in which had led to some mice being cured of hemophilia through their genes being altered could lead to an effective treatment for people with the condition.

    The treatment used ‘gene-splicing’, where faulty genes which cause disorders such as hemophilia are injected with corrected genetic material. Such treatments are at the cutting edge of medicine, but none has yet proved a complete breakthrough. …”

  10. Genevieve Cook’s diary brims over with frustration about her inability to breach the defenses Obama had erected around himself. “[A] wall—the veil,” she calls it at one point; “[b]ut he is so wary, wary … resents extra weight,” she says at another. The material Maraniss has extracted from Alexandra McNear is even more interesting, because it’s in Obama’s own voice. There are hints of the presence, in early form, of one of the classic politician’s personality traits, a difficulty in defining oneself that leads to a tendency to define oneself through impact on others. “Caught without a class, a structure, or tradition to support me, in a sense the choice to take a different path is made for me….” he says in one letter. “The only way to assuage my feelings of isolation are to absorb all the traditions [and all the] classes; make them mine, me theirs.” In another letter, he says, “I don’t distinguish between struggling with the world and struggling with myself…. The minute others imprint my senses, they become me and I must deal with them or else close part of myself or make myself & the world smaller, lukewarm.” This sounds like the Obama we know, who is uncannily good at relating to a stadium full of strangers but not so good at schmoozing with chairs of congressional committees. In his resistance to being pinned down in any way, there is a lot of his mother. As Maraniss puts it: “Ann had the will to avoid the traps life set for her, &
    she infused that same will in her son.” …
    ( & it’s all BS 2 ME!!! ) ZERO GIRL-FRIENDS! ZERO!

      • The worst thing, and this would make a great campaign ad combined with a photo of her making that “what?” face, was when she said she CAN’T REMEMBER ANY BRIEFINGS AFTER HER 2012 CONCUSSION. So who the hell was SoS for the time until (IF EVER) she became able to REMEMBER THINGS? Why didn’t she step down when it was proved she could no longer do her job? If something happens similarly if she’s president, who will run the country then?

        Isn’t this a question we all need answered? Will the media ask? Will Huma step in as president? Was Huma the SoS during this long, long time when Hillary was “confused” and couldn’t even remember security briefings? Did it occur to her to step down? Another question that needs to be asked.

        So I read an article in the paper that basically says there’s nothing new in the revelations from the FBI! It’s nothing new to know that the so-called functioning Secretary of State was so out of it that she didn’t REMEMBER ANY BRIEFINGS AFTER HER CONCUSSION? Why did she bother to get them, then?

        Not to mention, here’s another obvious question: WHO CONTROLS THE FBI SUCH THAT THE DECISION WAS MADE TO (AS USUAL) MAKE THIS DOCUMENT DUMP ON THE DAY BEFORE A 3-DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND? Was the FBI just following unbiased procedure and responding to a Congressional request when SOMEBODY decided to hold onto the documents until right before the Labor Day Weekend? Funny how that works.

    • If he truly did “resent extra weight,” then why did he marry Mooch? 🙂

    • I’m suspecting a sandbagging and a meme here. Did you see that now the WSJ is trying to tie TRUMP to the mob? How ironic. Hillary and Bill have their own mob. It’s the Arkansas Mafia.

      And, you know what? It’s not as if the DemoncRATS haven’t ALWAYS been connected to the Mob. Kennedy?
