This is Chiraq: 9-year-old boy among 10 dead, 37 wounded in weekend shootings

rahm

Heck of a job mayor…

These are the numbers at the time I scheduled this blog post on Sunday at 3:00 pm. Don’t be surprised if the numbers go up by Monday morning.

From MyFoxChicago: Ten people have been killed, including a 9-year-old boy, and 37 others wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.

Since the start of the year, 1,984 people have been shot in the city, 349 of them fatally, according to data maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times. Last weekend, two people were killed and 38 others were wounded in city gun violence.

The 9-year-old Gustavo Garcia was in an SUV with a 31-year-old at 11:13 p.m. Friday when they were shot in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. They were traveling west in the 3500 block of East 97th Street when someone fired shots from a gray car that pulled up next to them. The boy was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where he died, police said. The man was in critical condition at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Family members gathered inside and outside the children’s hospital. A man who said he was Garcia’s father took about 10 minutes to calm down before entering the hospital. He went back outside and fell to his knees when he learned of his son’s death. A man in the group said the family didn’t want to comment any further on the incident and declined to reveal the boy’s identity.

The most recent fatal shooting happened about 3:20 a.m. Sunday in the South Shore neighborhood. A 23-year-old man was sitting in a parked vehicle in the 2100 block of East 71st Street when he was approached by two males who shot him in the chest and left arm, according to Chicago Police. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he died.

About two hours earlier, one man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side. A male approached and shot the men while they were standing on the sidewalk in the 3900 block of West Arthington, police said. They were both taken to Stroger Hospital. A 31-year-old man died with a gunshot wound to the neck. A 32-year-old man was shot in the right leg, and his condition had stabilized.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office did not release their identities Sunday morning.

At least 31 more people have been shot across the city between 6 p.m. Friday and 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

Monday Horror: No one will hire us because of Trump

One reason why President Trump continues to tweet is because Twitter affords him a direct way to communicate to the American people, without having to depend on the fake-news MSM as a medium.

A couple of days ago, President Trump sent out this tweet, showing the employment gains since he was inaugurated.

But there’ll be no employment for these two.

Come to think of it, maybe those two mutilated their faces with plastic surgery into grotesque devil masks as a way to avoid working so as to stay on welfare. Can they claim this as a Social Security disability?

But I doubt it.

I think it’s a case of demonic possession.

What do you think?

This is Chiraq: 4 killed, 15 wounded in Thursday shootings

chicago

From MyFoxChicago: Four people were killed and 15 wounded in separate shootings across the South and West sides of Chicago on Thursday. Additionally, a man died after a gun went off in his waistband in the West Englewood neighborhood.

So far this year, 1,937 people have been shot in the city, leaving 338 dead, according to Chicago Sun-Times data.

Thursday’s latest slaying happened just before midnight in Princeton Park, where officers found a 29-year-old man shot in the head on the ground next to a vehicle in the 200 block of West 95th Street. He died at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to Chicago Police.

About 7:45 p.m., Terbord Williams was shot in the torso during a Wrightwood neighborhood drive-by attack, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. The 24-year-old man died at the scene in the 2600 block of West 83rd Street.

At 12:20 p.m. in Humboldt Park, someone walked up to 29-year-old Derrick Murray in the 4600 block of West Augusta and shot him repeatedly, authorities said. The Lawndale resident died at Stroger Hospital within the hour.

The day’s first fatal shooting happened shortly after midnight in Lawndale, where a 28-year-old man was shot multiple times in the “lower extremities” in the 3100 block of West Lexington, police said. He died at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Thursday’s final nonfatal shooting happened about 11 p.m. on the Near West Side and left a 16-year-old boy in critical condition at Stroger Hospital. One or more shooters opened fire on him from a car as he walked into an apartment building in the 200 block of South Maplewood, police said.

An hour before that, someone with dreadlocks in Lawndale shot a 28-year-old man repeatedly as he rode a bicycle in the 4200 block of West Cermak, police said. The man was taken to Mount Sinai in serious condition.

Thirteen more people were shot separately between 2 a.m. and 10 p.m., and they were expected to survive.

The bloodshed continued into early Friday, as two men were slain in separate attacks in Fernwood and Chatham. And two more were wounded in Albany Park and South Shore — all before 3 a.m.

Monkey Business in Court

When the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals isn’t trying to stall President Trump’s agenda, it has other important cases 

AP: Federal court to rule if a monkey owns the copyright for its selfie photos

July 12, 2017 at 7:42 PM

This 2011 photo provided by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals shows a selfie taken by a macaque monkey on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi with a camera that was positioned by British nature photographer David Slater. The photo is part of a court exhibit in a lawsuit filed by PETA. (David Slater/Court exhibit via AP)

By Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — A curious monkey with a toothy grin and a knack for pressing a camera button was back in the spotlight Wednesday as a federal appeals court heard arguments on whether an animal can hold a copyright to selfie photos…

“People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sued Slater and the San Francisco-based self-publishing company Blurb, which published a book called “Wildlife Personalities” that includes the monkey selfies, for copyright infringement. It sought a court order in 2015 allowing it to administer all proceeds from the photos taken in a wildlife reserve in Sulawesi, Indonesia to benefit the monkey.”

Well dear readers, here’s a case considered worthy of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Any thoughts?

 

Liberal Insanity: 22 genders!

The Left invented identity politics.

It was their guru Karl Marx who invented class identity politics (called “class consciousness”). Since then, the Left have been “discovering” and politicizing new identities at an increasingly dizzying speed — from race (black, brown) to  ethnicity (hyphenated Americans) to religion (Muslims, atheists and the sacrosanct, beyond-criticism Jews) to sexual orientation (LBGT) to gender (feminism) to the latest, trans gender. All of which serves the singular purpose of dividing Americans into separate groups of perpetually-aggrieved victims.

If you think the biologically-fictitious transgender identity is bad, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

See “American College of Pediatricians speaks truth on transgenderism

For its 2016 VIDA Count Intersectional Survey, the U.S. literary organization VIDA: Women in Literary Arts has 22 genders!

VIDA’s bizarre list of genders include “agender” (no gender), “bigender” (both male and female), “intersex” (neither male nor female?), “multigender”, “polygender”, and “transmisogyny constrained” (whatever that is).

Compared to New York City, however, VIDA is stone-age conservative. See “New York City government recognizes 31 genders“.

Truly, liberalism is a mental disorder of a magnitude hitherto underestimated in its pathology and severity.

Leftwing Lunacy: Paving roads is racist

Caroline Criado-Perez is a Brazilian-born British feminist activist and journalist, a member of the Tribe, and heaped with honors:

  • In 2013, Perez was named one of BBC’s 100 Women.
  • In 2015, at age 36, she was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) ‘For services to Equality and Diversity, particularly in the Media’.

This is a recent tweet posted by Criado-Perez (retweeted by InfoWars reporters Paul Joseph Watson):

“Also spending money on roads instead of welfare is literally choosing rich white men over everyone else — they are the ones who drive.”

Bet you didn’t know that only rich white men drive.
