Family Security Matters
America’s mass shooting capital isn’t somewhere out west where you can get a gun at the corner store. It’s in Obama’s own hometown.
Chicago is America’s mass shooting capital. There were over 400 shootings with more than one victim. In 95 of those shootings, 3 or more people were shot.
2,995 people were shot in Chicago last year. Shootings were up, way up, in Baltimore. With an assist from Al Sharpton and #BlackLivesMatter, Baltimore beat out Detroit. But Detroit is still in the running. Chicago, Baltimore and Detroit all have something in common, they’re all run by the party of gun control which somehow can’t seem to manage to control the criminals who have the guns.
The murder rate in Washington, D.C., home of the progressive boys and girls who can solve it all, is up 54%. The capital of the national bureaucracy has also been the country’s murder capital.
These cities are the heartland of America’s real gun culture. It isn’t the bitter gun-and-bible clingers in McCain and Romney territory who are racking up a more horrifying annual kill rate than Al Qaeda; it’s Obama’s own voting base.
Shocker! The Swiss recently raised their terror alert and are hunting for four Syrians who are planning attacks against Switzerland and cities in the US including Chicago. They are also planning attacks in Toronto and Geneva. The US intelligence services are the ones that tipped them off.
Two Syrians were arrested in Switzerland but it’s not known if they are tied to the other four. They had traces of explosives in their car.
The four are believed to be part of the Mourad Fares network. Fares is a known recruiter for jihad in Syria. French intelligence sources say he’s worked for ISIS, mainly in Francophone countries, and in Switzerland, including in Geneva.
ISIS has been threatening terror attacks in Switzerland for months and a January video encouraged an attack in Switzerland.
A photo of the four terrorists has been released so if you see these men, notify the US authorities who released the photo.
The photo was allegedly sent by US authorities and shows the suspects sitting holding up the Daesh finger sign with their faces hidden – this is the politically correct version I suppose. Hopefully the Swiss authorities have photos without their faces blocked.
The terrorists are tied to one of the Paris attackers at the Bataclan.
If they succeed in attacking a US city, will it be gun violence or workplace violence?
The Paris terrorist attacks bring to mind the frightening case of an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) operative arrested in Chicago last fall and released earlier this year to serve probation in Illinois for a state crime that secretly drew federal intervention.
His name is Emad Karakrah, the ringleader of a sophisticated narco-terror operation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) facilitated his release from Cook County Jail in January. Judicial Watch uncovered Karakrah’s terrorism record and has reported extensively on his extremist activities, including a 2009 plot to bomb talk-show host Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago studios and the iconic Sears Tower. In late August of last year Karakrah was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase through Chicago streets as an ISIS flag waved from his car. When Chicago Police finally stopped and arrested Karakrah, he told officers his car was rigged with explosives that would detonate if searched. Bomb disposal units secured the vehicle without incident, but Karakrah’s arrest helped expose a narco-terrorist network with roots and financing in El Paso, Texas.
Lawlessness: Fueled by this president’s anti-police policies and race-baiting rhetoric, thugs are attacking cops and terrorizing major cities. Horrible violence is breaking out all over. We are witnessing a national crime wave.
Law enforcement expects to see an escalation in criminal activity over the summer. Already we’ve seen a disturbing trend in May, including:
The above photo titled ‘Art for Chuy’ comes from the Chuy for Mayor website which is sanctioned by Chuy Garcia. It sports the slogan “¡Sí se puede!,” which means “Yes, We Can!” It is a communist revolutionary slogan.
Rahm Emanuel, the Mayor of Chicago, is in a runoff election for his position with Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia who has been labeled a communist by some and who has strong ties to communists.
As far back as 1986, Garcia was labeled “100 percent communist” by supermarket owner Guadalupe Martinez, now deceased, who ran against him for a position on the city council. During the 1986 campaign Martinez said, “My opponent Jesus Garcia is 100 percent communist, if not 110 percent.” Garcia denied it and won hands down.
It might be time to root for Progressive Rahm Emanuel though he’s probably not much better.
Garcia refers to himself as a Progressive. If Garcia isn’t a communist, he, in the least, has had a lot of communist friends and supporters now and in the past.
Garcia has a history of being honored and supported by communists.
Cities: The problem with socialism, Margaret Thatcher once noted, is you eventually run out of other people’s money. In progressive Chicago, that’s hit home as Moody’s has cut its credit rating to two grades above “junk.”
Chicago’s finances are staggering under the weight of an unfunded pension liability that Moody’s Investors Service has estimated at $32 billion, eight times the city’s operating revenue.
Chicago has a $300 million structural deficit. And Illinois law requires the city to up its 2016 contributions to its police and fire pension funds by $550 million.
