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.
It didn’t take long for the devastating combination of liberal politics and demographic displacement to reduce this…
Now the rest of the country is being forced to follow closely on Detroit’s heels. The term for this tragic, irreversible process is “Hope & Change.”
Family Security Matters
After another bloody weekend in Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel branded the shootings unacceptable and the city’s top cop demanded more gun control laws. Chicago’s murder rate has actually dropped since concealed carry became legal. Emanuel’s lawsuits over his illegal gun control laws have left the already struggling city deep in the hole and forced to cover the NRA’s million dollars in legal bills.
Concealed carry paid off over that bloody weekend when a vet carrying a gun returned fire stopping a massacre before it happened. The original shooter ended up in the hospital, but nobody ended up in the morgue, which kept the death toll for the weekend down to fourteen.
Fourteen isn’t pretty, but it’s better than twenty or thirty.

Can you imagine the man with the Pen and the Phone, actually saying that? Obama’s Senior Advisor, Valerie Jarrett Is more direct, “Congress won’t be a problem for us this time.”
Within the shadows of Detroit, America’s bankrupt experiment with Progressivism, an army of SE Michigan grassroots activists cling even more tightly to their U.S. Constitution than to any guns and Bibles. Maybe that’s because the death and devastation that resembles a third world city is so close to home.
“The rate of death before the age of 18 in Detroit is nearly three times New York City’s, and its infant-mortality rate exceeds that of Botswana.”
A coalition of SE Michigan Constitutionalists is gearing up over the next several months to win the battle of the Michigan Republican Primary and preserve and protect their liberty.
Historian and author David Barton will be the keynote speaker at a fundraiser for Constitutionalist Tom McMillin, candidate for the Michigan Senate 13th District. Barton will undoubtedly be discussing his support for the Convention of States as a way to use the Constitution to save itself.
Rochester College is hosting an evening with Dr. Ben Carson which will likely include commentary on the pathology that is Obamacare – which begs the question – Will Constitutionalist Kerry Bentivolio’s vote to Defund Obamacare and his 83% Heritage Action rating be enough to hold off the onslaught of his heavily financed GOP establishment opponent?
Allen West will be rallying his fellow Constitutionalists and their Precinct Delegates when he addresses the Romeo Tea Party two months before the all-important August Primary. Will these Delegates be organized enough to choose Constitutionalist Wes Nakagiri for Lt. Governor over RINO Brian Calley at the State Convention just after the Primary?
Director and Executive Producer Ben Howe and Producer Thomas LaDuke released their documentary on the tragic story of Detroit. You can view the entire film on YouTube:
From the website:
Once the most prosperous city in America. With a booming manufacturing sector and cultural magnetism, the city had bright horizons after World War II. But as the 1960′s rolled in, the marriage of Big Business and Big Government overtook Detroit. The central planners in government needed the powerful corporations, and the powerful corporations came to depend on the bureaucracy, too. The marriage worked well for the politicians and for their corporate cronies, but Detroit itself entered a decades-long decline. America watched as Detroit slowly bled people, jobs and revenue. Politicians tried spending money. They tried raising taxes. The more they taxed and spent, the faster the city declined. Detroit still had its “Big Three” auto manufacturers, until two of its crown jewels, General Motors and Chrysler, imploded in 2008 under the weight of reckless and subsidized mismanagement.
Instead of allowing market forces to rebuild Detroit and the auto industry, the United States handed billions of dollars to General Motors and Chrysler.
Five years later, the city of Detroit is bankrupt and almost $20 billion dollars in debt.
Read the rest here.
And, take the time to learn more about how Democratic policies destroyed one of America’s great cities.
Consider the following regarding the city of Detroit:
40% of its street lamps don’t work.
210 of its 317 public parks have been closed.
It takes an hour for police to respond to a 911 call.
Only a third of its ambulances are drivable.
One-third of the city has been abandoned.
Forty-seven percent of adults are functionally illiterate
Evidently 50 years of governance by compassionate Obama community organizer types have driven out the business class and now there is no one left to rail against.
To top it off, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina declared Detroit’s bankruptcy “unconstitutional.” Evidently, as Mark Stein puts it, in Michigan,” reality is unconstitutional.”
Make that, “If Obama had a country, it would look like Detroit”

The Detroit News
Detroit — Arab-American and Muslim leaders said they received assurances today from federal law enforcement officials that added security in the wake of the death of Osama bin Laden wouldn’t result in profiling.
The meeting at the Star International Academy between the community leaders and representatives from the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office and Department of Homeland Security was scheduled before bin Laden’s death, but concerns emerged about possible retaliation or difficulties if the federal threat level is elevated.
“All of the federal agencies made it loud and clear that hate crimes and a backlash would not be tolerated, and that in no form or shape would there be racial profiling,” said Imad Hamad, the regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
