Chicago - Texas officials chartered a private plane to fly migrants to Chicago on Tuesday night, according to Mayor Brandon Johnson's office. Police at O'Hare Airport were told a private plane chartered by the Texas Department of Emergency Management landed and left approximately 100 asylum seekers at Signature Flight. (Snip) Texas Governor Greg Abbott's office sent this statement in regard to the private migrant flight. "Because Mayor Johnson is failing to live up to his city's ‘Welcoming City’ ordinance by targeting migrant buses from Texas, we are expanding our operation to include flights to Chicago, like the Biden Administration has been doing across the country.

Aren't all planes 'private'? The cost to charter a jet based on a number of people is a frugal thing to do.

Taking an Uber (which requires a credit or debit card) from an FBO is "fleeing?" The mayor's office describes the ground transport as coming from "rogue bus operators." The bus operation to Chicago continues.

Since the school buses will not be used for a couple of weeks, we could send several thousand bus loads to the wonderful sanctuary cities around the country.

More than one-third of US adults has prediabetes, a serious condition that can lead to type 2 diabetes. And a whopping 80% of those people don’t even know they have prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the CDC is pushing back on the rise in type 2 diabetes with a “Be Your Own Hero” initiative aimed at getting people to take a one-minute prediabetes test so they can delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. “Diabetes is a devastating public health problem, and I cannot overstate the toll that it continues to take on millions of people across the United States,” Dr. Christopher Holliday, director of the CDC’s Division

Chicago - A special City Council meeting to discuss Chicago's sanctuary city status descended into chaos Tuesday. The meeting was suspended amid a large contingent of loud and angry demonstrators that had taken over the gallery in the City Council chambers, expressing their displeasure over Chicago's status as a sanctuary city. Some protestors were kicked out of the rules committee meeting, which had to be shut down because nobody could hear what anybody was saying. Last week, there was an attempt to take a vote on an ordinance that would create a referendum on next spring's ballot, allowing the public to decide whether Chicago should continue its status as a sanctuary city.

Some locals in the area, which is home to a sizeable Jewish community, have slammed the officers over their 'disgusting actions'. But the Met has insisted they were merely taking steps to 'stop issues escalating' and to 'avoid community tension'.

An Illinois state appeals court has ruled that Illinoisans can be fired from their jobs for refusing to get a Covid vaccine, because a state right of conscience law that otherwise protects people for refusing to participate in morally objectionable medical procedures doesn’t apply to anything related to Covid after Illinois Democrats specifically rewrote the law to ensure its protections didn’t apply to Covid vaccine mandates. On Oct. 12, a three-justice panel of the Illinois First District Appellate Court backed hospital company Advocate Health, saying the hospital and medical clinic system can’t be sued by a nurse who was fired after she asserted her religious beliefs did not allow her

Chicago - The Chicago City Council’s only Jewish member is facing a bit of resistance to her plan to champion a "resolution in solidarity with Israel" in response to the attack by Hamas that has killed 1,000 people in Israel and subsequent Israeli airstrikes that killed 900 in Gaza.

When COVID-19 struck in 2020, the government quickly put together massive aid programs to help struggling businesses, along with the people who lost their jobs. But other kinds of enterprises with names like the Traveling Vice Lords and the Wild 100s — criminal street gangs in Chicago and across the country — soon figured out how to take advantage of that safety net. They defrauded those programs of millions of dollars that they used to buy guns and drugs, according to the U.S. Justice Department and court records. Incarcerated crooks were in on the act, too.The government estimates that, across the country, at least one-quarter of a billion dollars

The captains of an elite Virginia college swim team say they feel cheated and abandoned at having to accept a transgender competitor who until recently had competed for the men’s team. In a case being compared to the Lia Thomas controversy, the swimmer joined the women’s swim team at Roanoke College after sitting out the previous season during her transition, her teammates told the Daily Mail. The captains of the sophomore, junior and senior squads — Kate Pearson, 19, Lily Mullens, 20, and Bailey Gallagher, 20 — say it tore the team apart as they felt abandoned by the school and the NCAA.

President Biden has been warned by top aides and his wife Jill to rest more and be more mindful of his health going into 2024 — while he claims he “feels so much younger” than his 81 years, according to a new report. The age dynamic has caused tension inside the White House, according to Axios, which reported that aides have been known to roll their eyes at Biden’s insistence that he feels spry. “He is his own worst enemy when it comes to his schedule,” one ex-Biden adviser told the outlet, which reported in April that aides have trouble booking presidential events at certain times of the day —

The all-Democrat appointed Colorado Supreme Court last night barred Donald Trump from the state's 2024 Republican ballot over his role in the January 6 riot - with legal experts warning they have imperiled American democracy. The 4-3 decision marks the first time in history that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment - which disqualifies insurrectionists from office - has been used to eliminate a presidential candidate. Justices Richard L. Gabriel, Melissa Hart, Monica Márquez and William W. Hood III said that they had 'little difficulty' in determining that the events of January 6 were an insurrection and that Trump did 'engage' in that alleged rebellion.

I've been talking and writing about that since Donald Trump began racing away in the primary polling, and the lefties have been working overtime to prove that I still have some powers of political prognostication.

Every year, The Christmas Story is a holiday feature. I enjoy it a lot! The Chinese restaurant ending is great! Everything about this movie is so politically incorrect, from the old man to Mrs. Parker, to just about everything else. Remember the line about the old man being as good as an “Arab trader” when they are looking for Christmas trees? What about the lamp? The late Roger Ebert reviewed this movie in 2000. I’m not sure why he waited so long but he nailed it. This is Mr. Ebert’s review: One of the details that ‘A Christmas Story’ gets right is the threat

Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) was a source of embarrassment for the Republican Party. He won the 2022 Pennsylvania Senate race despite an abysmal debate with Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz and being mentally and physically unwell. The former mayor of Braddock nearly died during that election from a severe stroke. The GOP couldn’t clinch a win against a candidate who was visibly suffering from a debilitating health crisis. Fetterman was hospitalized shortly after being sworn in, which didn’t do anything to neutralize the narrative that he wasn’t healthy enough to serve. Yet, after his stint in the hospital for mental health, Fetterman has become one of the most level-headed

Acollege degree used to be a reliable passport to a better-paying career. To employers it signaled a level of knowledge and intellectual skills not shared by someone without a degree. That's why students and parents have been willing to pay increasingly higher tuition, taking out student loans and second mortgages before the graduates earn a dime.

President Joe Biden claimed on Wednesday that former President Donald Trump “certainly supported an insurrection” on January 6. The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in a four-to-three opinion that the United States Constitution’s “Insurrection Clause” blocks Trump from appearing on the state’s presidential ballot, preventing voters from deciding who should become the next president. Trump has not been charged with insurrection, though the Court cited the partisan January 6 Committee’s controversial finding that Trump engaged in insurrection, ignoring the fact the Senate acquitted Trump of the House charges.
