The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has told Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan for the last time that she MUST honor the Constitution of the United States by doing away with her state’s ban on the concealed carry of firearms.
It was back in December of last year that a 3 judge panel of the Court found the Illinois law banning concealed carry to be unconstitutional. “The Supreme Court has decided that the [2nd] amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside,” wrote 7th Circuit Judge Richard Posner, paraphrasing the opinion of S.C. Justice Samuel Alito. Naturally, the scrupulously liberal Madigan then petitioned the entire 10 member court, hoping that the ruling might be overturned. But the full court refused to reconsider the ruling of the panel. (1)
And now the Illinois legislature has about 4 months to rewrite its unconstitutional ban into something … Continue Reading:Its last appeal turned down, Illinois may no longer legally prevent Concealed Carry

Under Chicago’s Police Chief Gary McCarthy and the hack that hired him, Chicago has quickly become Murder City USA. Last year by a substantial amount, more Americans died from gunfire in the Windy City than died in Afghanistan. The gunfire is coming from the violent street gangs that infect the streets of Chicago.
Since they have failed to solve the real problem of gunfire killing people in their streets, the current administration has invented a problem their media pals can fool the dupes that vote for them into thinking they are solving. Their invented problem is: what to do about “dangerous” people who are licensed gun owners?
Since their constituency of public housing dwellers doesn’t count when they complain, honest licensed gun owners who can put a spotlight on their failure to make the streets safe, must be targeted and shut up. Last week McCarthy publicly warned licensed gun owners his officers … Continue Reading:Chicago’s licensed gun owner “problem” invented to fool the dupes who vote for Democrats

In March, Coach is Right published a story of official cover-up and falsification of witness testimony involved in the 2004 death of David Koschman at the hands of Richard Vanecko, nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley.
In the early morning hours of April 25th 2004, Koschman and three friends bumped into someone from a group which had been visiting the bars in downtown Chicago. A moment later, a member of that party struck Koschman, driving his head into the street causing brain damage from which the young man never recovered. His mother buried him 20 days later, disconnecting life support after 2 failed surgeries.
One full month after the event, police informed Koschman’s mother that her 5’5”, 125 lb son had “been the aggressor” in a fight with the 6’3”, 230 lb Vanecko and as a result, though her son was killed, no charges would be brought. Police told Mrs. Koschman that she … Continue Reading:Grand Jury threatens to expose police/mayoral cover-up of manslaughter in Chicago

Though grudgingly provided and universally redacted, documents subpoenaed by Congress from the White House and the Office of Management and Budget now reveal that Barack Hussein Obama himself was responsible for manufacturing the loss of $535 million taxpayer dollars in the 2011 Solyndra bankruptcy.
In 2010, solar panel manufacturer Solyndra Inc. received $535 million in loan guarantees for “innovative technology” under the terms of Barack Obama’s federal stimulus plan. The fact that a Price Waterhouse audit filed earlier that year with the SEC showed Solyndra had lost $558 million during its first 5 years in business, boasted negative cash flow, had no profitable years and featured a “seriously flawed” business model didn’t seem to matter to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who delighted Obama’s left-wing, environmentalist supporters by choosing the company as the president’s favorite green energy producer.

But by early 2011, Solyndra was very much up … Continue Reading:Congress proves Obama himself engineered $535 million taxpayer loss in Solyndra debacle

“Arm yourselves citizens. You are about to become the most unusual social experiment in history.” (1)
Such is the advice the owner of police blog “Second City Cop” gives to the residents of Rahm Emanuel’s crime ridden city of Chicago. Months after inheriting a demoralized and shrinking police force from outgoing mayor Richard Daley, Rahm Emanuel has charged newly appointed Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy with slashing $190 million from the Department budget.
Yet during last year’s campaign, Emanuel promised voters he would, “…put 1000 more officers on the beat and erase a more than $635 million city of Chicago budget shortfall without cutting police, raising taxes or using one-time revenues.” (2)
How does he intend to perform these feats of financial legerdemain?
Apparently he’ll start by taking a page from former Mayor Daley’s handbook of chimerical accounting. It was Daley’s habit to authorize and account for certain numbers of police in Chicago’s annual budget … Continue Reading:“Arm Yourselves Citizens,” says Cop to people of Chicago.
