President Trump forms special strike force against Chicago’s homicide epidemic

Throughout the Obama years, nearly every week FOTM‘s DCG has been chronicling the city of Chicago’s doleful shooting homicide statistics, the most recent being today’s post, “This is Chiraq: More than 100 shot over Fourth of July Weekend“.

Those statistics clearly demonstrate that the gun-control city’s epidemic of murder and shooting is beyond the control of both the city government, headed by useless mayor Rahm Emanuel, as well as the Illinois state government.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump had indicated that if elected, he would do something to help America’s black inner cities. Singling out Chicago, Trump promised he would send in “the Feds” to help reduce the city’s murder rate.

Now, the federal government finally is doing something to help Chicago, no thanks to Barack Obama, who began his political career and rise in Chicago — the birthplace of his wife, Michelle.

Fox News reports that on June 30, 2017, decrying the crime epidemic on Chicago streets, President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the federal government is sending about 20 additional U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents the city.

Trump tweeted that “Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help. 1714 shootings in Chicago this year!”

For his part, AG Sessions told “Fox & Friends” that Chicago police are “demoralized” and city politics are not working, and that the Department of Justice is assisting: “We’ll have an impact in reducing shootings in Chicago. Murders are way, way too high.”

Sessions subsequently released a written statement saying “The Trump Administration will not let the bloodshed go on; we cannot accept these levels of violence,” and that the Trump administration has created the Chicago Gun Strike Force and is sending “20 more permanent ATF agents to Chicago, reallocating federal prosecutors and prioritizing prosecutions to reduce gun violence” and working with law enforcement partners.

The new set of ATF agents will work with counterparts from the Chicago Police Department and Illinois State Police on the new Chicago Gun Strike Force to solve shootings and arrest gun traffickers, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Included in the strike force are prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office and Cook County state’s attorney’s office, who will decided whether suspects in gun crime should be charged in state or federal court. Anthony Riccio, head of the Chicago Police Department’s organized crime unit, said: “The goal is the prosecute as many of these guys as possible federally where they will serve longer prison terms.

Unborn babies in womb distinguish between human faces and other shapes

But, but, how can this be?

Aren’t we told by the pro-choice pro-aborts that the unborn are not human persons but mere inert lumps of the woman’s body tissue, akin to toenails?

Samuel Alexander, 21 weeks, clutches the finger of surgeon Joseph Bruner.

Sarah Knapton reports for The Telegraph, June 8, 2017, that new research by scientists at Lancaster University, published in the journal Current Biology, found that unborn babies in their mothers’ wombs not only can distinguish between human faces and other shapes, but display an attraction to and preference for human faces.

The researchers shone dots of light through the uterus wall of 39 expectant mothers who were 34 weeks (8 months) pregnant:

  • When the dots of light were arranged to look like the eyes and mouth of a human face, the babies turned their heads to look at it.
  • When the dots of light were arranged as a random shape or to make the face look upside down and so harder to recognize as a human face, the unborn babies did not react.

The finding suggests that the instinct to recognize facial features develops before a baby, after birth, has actually seen a face for the first time. The research also shows that, by 8 months old, an unborn baby’s senses are already well developed and parents should begin interacting with their child while he/she is still in the womb.

Professor Vincent Reid, a psychologist at Lancaster University who led the research, said:

“We know from babies that they prefer to look at faces more than any other stimulus. We have now shown that the foetus can distinguish between different shapes, preferring to track face-like over non-face-like shapes. The foetus in the third trimester actively seeks out information. In our study they had to move their head to keep looking at the face-like stimulus when we moved it away from them. So they are active participants in finding information from the environment. What this means is that other ways of interacting with the fetus can be considered. The foetus in the third trimester can hear very well. I would encourage expecting parents to read books out loud to each other. This can help with bonding and could be beneficial.”

Professor Reid said the research finding suggests unborn babies are already hardwired to recognize human faces and that “It is possible that the maternal rib cage could introduce variation in light penetrating the womb and this may be enough visual information to create this bias” for faces.

But Dr. Reid warned that expecting mothers should avoid shining bright lights through their abdomen in case they damage their unborn child’s eyes.

Just remember that Barack & “Michael” Michelle Obama, as well as Hillary Clinton, all favor women’s unrestricted access to abortion, including legally-sanctioned late-term abortions, i.e., the  murder of unborn babies in their third trimester, up to 9 months old.

Obama Speaks on Global Warming, Then Spews CO2 With Private Jet, 13-Car Motorcade

obama

Do as I say, not as I do.

Of course he did.

From HeatStreet:  Current President Donald Trump may be living it up in Saudi Arabia, but former President Barack Obama certainly isn’t slacking off on the sweet life.

Obama and his wife Michelle are in Italy this week on vacation, after the former President spoke to the Institute for International Political Studies in Milan on the importance of addressing climate change, to preserve the world’s food supply and protect its underprivileged.

Apparently, he’s decided to demonstrate humanity’s contribution to global warming by making his own carbon footprint as big as possible.

On Friday, the Obama’s jetted into Tuscany on a private – not a commercial – plane, escorted into a small Florentine airport by six additional military jets, according to Italian state television. Footage of the landing has been broadcasting across Italy all weekend.

Once on the ground, the Obamas slipped into a black SUV and drove to the private Tuscan villa, Borgo Finocchieto, where they’ll be staying in all week, escorted by a 13-car motorcade.

The Villa, of course, is no mere motel, nestled in the Tuscan countryside just a few miles south of the city of Florence. They’ll be taking over an entire Tuscan village, where they’ll have their choice of 22 bedrooms, a library, several private spas and steam rooms, and wine-tasting room. Borgo Finocchieto also boasts commanding views of Tuscany’s vineyards.

It usually goes for $15,000 per night, but luckily for Obama, it belongs to his former ambassador to Italy, so no doubt the pair will get a deal.

In just his trip back and forth to Italy, for his presentation and his vacation, Barack Obama has emitted more than 16 metric tons of carbon – just shy of what an average American emits in a year. Add to that the motorcade, the internal travel in Italy, and, of course, the villa, and Obama and his wife have easily emitted more carbon in one single week than most Americans will in 2017.

Last week, Obama implored those same Americans – and their compatriots across Europe – to cut down on their carbon emissions in order to draw global warming to a standstill. “When it comes to climate change, the hour is almost upon us,” Obama told the audience at his IIPS keynote. “I do not believe that this planet is condemned to ever-rising temperatures. I believe these are problems that were caused by man and can be solved by man.

He even predicted that such egregious energy consumption to lead to food shortages as Europe struggles to take in refugees from the Middle East. If it were such an imperative, however, perhaps Obama, like other famous environmental activists, should be reconsidering his own personal habits.

The Egyptian Tranny Caption Contest

This is the 150th world-famous FOTM Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic:

About the pic: On April 21, 2017, Chicago artist Chris Devins finished painting a mural of Michelle Obama as an Egyptian queen on an apartment building at the corner of 74th and Chappell on Chicago’s South Side, across the street from Bouchet Elementary School where Mooch had graduated.

Devins had financed the painting with $12,000 from a GoFundMe campaign. He said: “The purpose of this mural is to give today’s children someone they can literally look up to and to celebrate Mrs. Obama’s life and accomplishments during the last 8 years as First Lady of the United States.”

Alas, Devins plagiarized the image from another artist — Ethiopian-born Gelila Mesfin, who had posted a photo of her painting to her Instagram account (@Thick_East_African_Girl) last November.

After first denying knowing of Mesfin’s work, Devins eventually admitted being “inspired” by Mesfin’s painting and offered her a licensing fee. (Source)

Michelle Obama’s healthy school meals are set to be scrapped by Trump’s agriculture secretary next week

Say bye bye to Michelle Obama’s mandated school lunches

Another Obama legacy bites the dust.

From Daily Mail: Michelle Obama‘s healthy school lunches could be on the chopping block with the Trump administration expected to announce new measures as early as Monday to ease the program’s regulations.

The US Department of Agriculture announced on Friday that its secretary Sonny Perdue is set to introduce new standards that will give schools more flexibility in relation to the National School Lunch Program. It is not yet clear how the rules will change school lunches or the regulations.

The announcement will take place at the Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg, Virginia, where Perdue and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will eat lunch with the students, The Hill reports.

Republicans have long held concerns about the school lunch program, which was spearheaded by the former First Lady to establish new healthy eating standards and curb childhood obesity.

But the more nutritious meals, which required more fruit, vegetables and whole grains, have not always been popular with schoolchildren.

The regulations pushed by Mrs. Obama led to the sarcastic hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama flooding the internet with unimpressed students sharing photos of their lunch.

Some pictures shared as recently as last week show piles of mushy lunches, small portions and the kind of fare that left some saying even ‘prisoners eat better food.’
