Triple shootings last night in one West Side Chi neighborhood in 20 minutes

Two of them. Hours later residents are heard debating causes of Chicago violence.

The men began debating what could be the cause of so much violence. [One] argued generations of blacks being exploited could be attributed to what is going on in some Chicago communities.

I think the writer might want that 2nd sentence back, or does she realize she said what happened long ago for a long time is the result of what’s happening now?

Another “argued for more economic and educational opportunities.”

“We need jobs, jobs, jobs,” he said. “We can’t see the American Dream. We need some way to make an economic breakthrough.”

This fellow makes a bit more sense, to be sure, and it’s good in any case that the reporter caught this bit of byplay in a beleaguered neighborhood.

Trump stumbles, establishment attacks

And then what happens?

For better or for worse, and to the repeated horror of the Bushes, McCains, and Romneys, Trump isn’t playing nice. And for every moderate or casual Trump-leaner he may lose by fighting, he could easily be gaining the more fervent support from his base.

After the absolutely zany mass turning-on him when he accurately described a situation, supporters reel perhaps but then ask two questions: 1. Who else is there to counter the mass foolishness, so vigorously encouraged the most of the mass media? And 2. He has the battling style that’s needed, and most of the mass media is not to be trusted.

That’s been my reaction.

How could you? asked the snowflakes at an exclusive California college . . .

. . . when one of them posted a pic of herself with the Vice President of the United States of America.

Can you blame them? They’d heard of such atrocities but never encountered one so close.

Unleash the comfort animals.

Dems vs. Dems in federal court about fixing election. Who knew?

Not editors and reporters, much less subscribers and online lurkers to or on our highest-circulation, probity, and professionalism of our major outlets.

The mainstream media is conspicuously ignoring a newsworthy class-action lawsuit accusing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Florida congresswoman—Debbie Wasserman Schultz—who chaired it of fraud for skewing the party’s primaries to benefit Hillary Clinton.

The drama is playing out in a south Florida federal court where 150 Democratic voters and donors are also accusing their party and Wasserman Schultz of breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, unjust enrichment, and negligent misrepresentation for secretly helping Clinton get the presidential nomination over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Look, it’s not the kind of story that interests them. Man bites dog? So what?

HUD Director Goes on $336,000 Shopping Spree with Low-Income Housing Funds

Business as usual for this giver of untold blessings to poor people looking for place to live.

Not kidding, folks. Problems go back a long time.

The best and the brightest strike again

Kill him!

Nutty Nancy at it again

Can’t impeach him yet, so censure him

Two out of three Republicans (voters) have heads screwed on straight about Charlottesville, poll discovers

Legislators? Maybe them too.

When the NY Times got it right about Charlottesville

It was a reporter on the scene, who told it as it was.

In his sometimes clumsy way, Trump was making the same point as New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg, who was on the ground in Charlottesville covering the event.

She noticed that the far left counter-protesters were intent on instigating violence and tweeted that “the hard left seemed as hate-filled as the alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.”

Then for some reason felt the need to change that.

Later, perhaps sensing she was in danger of transgressing some sort of unofficial party line, she amended her thought. She added that the leftists were “violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to hate.”

Of course, “standing up to hate” (of whites) is exactly what the alt right would say they are doing as well.

Close call for one of nation’s chief narrative-suppliers.

And that tweet by Ms. Stolberg would hardly have been missed by the nation’s First Tweeter, who caught hell for taking that eyewitness account and running with it, as we know.

A word for neo-liberalism

Especially on a country-to-country basis, according to which equality is on the uptick.
