Dissolve Illinois! New U.S Venezuela!
"Finally Run Out of Other Peoples Money"
Illinois is like Venezuela now, a fiscally broken state that has lost its will to live, although for the moment, we still have enough toilet paper.
But before we run out of the essentials, let's finally admit that after decade upon decade of taxing and spending and borrowing, Illinois has finally run out of other people's money.
Those "other people" include taxpayers who've abandoned the state. And now Illinois faces doomsday.
So as the politicians meet in Springfield this week for another round of posturing and gesturing and blaming, we need a plan.
And here it is:

A senior Iranian leader and confidant of the Islamic Republic's president is threatening to "depose" President Donald Trump if he continues his policy of confronting Iran and its terror proxy groups in the Middle East, according to recent comments that come as Iranian military leaders threaten missile strikes on U.S. forces and bases in the region.
Mostafa Tajzadeh, a leading Iranian politician and ally to President Hassan Rouhani, claimed this week that the Trump administration is too "fragile" to confront Iran and that if U.S. officials do "anything unwise against Iran," the Islamic Republic will see that Trump is "deposed," according to Farsi-language comments independently translated for the Washington Free Beacon.
Minimum Wage Increases Closing Restaurants
LA Times Columnist Make Excuses
Over the last two years many localities across the United States have increased minimum wage requirements. And, the past couple years has also seen an increase in stories of restaurant closures in the affected areas.
While this is no surprise to many economists, right-leaning publications, and right-leaning intellectuals, the left has sought to debunk the connections between restaurant closures and the increase in local minimum wages.
However, a recent study by Harvard University shows concrete evidence that, at least in San Francisco where the study was conducted , the minimum wage increase is directly impacting restaurant closings overall.
The study indicates that minimum wage has an overall impact on restaurant closures in general, but qualifies the study by stating “While lower rated restaurants are driven to exit by increases to the minimum wage, higher rated restaurants tend to be more insulated from such shocks.”
This statement caused left-leaning Los Angeles Times Columnist, Michael Hiltzik to allege, “Minimum wage increases can kill businesses—if they already stink.” While the study does say that restaurants with lower review ratings have a tendency of exiting, it also refers to restaurants being “closer to the margin of exit”, or in other words, who have a higher overhead compared to sales intake.
Low ratings, in Hiltzik’s view, are to understood as a result of poor business practices resulting in poor service and product. The statement from the study that he focuses on is “A $1 increase in the minimum wage leads to a 14% increase in the likelihood of exit for a 3.5-star restaurant…but has no discernible impact for a 5-star.”
Hiltzik’s assertion is incorrect as he fails to see a very important point. The first is that some restaurants, are a “3.5” rating by design, even when doing business in a solvent, professional manner. They are essentially closer to “the margin” that the report refers to.
Karen Handel Wins Georgia 6th District!
Pajama Boy Loses! Republicans Laugh Their Ossoff!
Karen Handle won the special election Tuesday night, for the 6th congressional district concluding the most expensive house race in history. The seat, which has traditionally been held by Republicans since 1979 was vacated by Tom Price, who was appointed as President Trump’s Secretary of Health and Human Services.
This is the runoff from the election back on April 18th, which due to the number of candidates from both parties, was essentially treated as a primary. The April election resulted in Democrat Jon Ossoff to compete against Karen Handel.
This election was to be a “referendum on Trump” according to the Chicago Tribune as well as other media heavy hitters. The Tribune also reported that this race was being watched as a “possible harbinger of the national dynamics ahead of the 2018 midterm elections”.
According to most media outlets, Ossoff was favored to win the seat once held by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. Jon Ossoff’s team, early in the campaign, tried to capitalize on anti-Trump sentiments with the slogan “Make Trump Furious”.
Pajama Boy Manager 86's Free Beacon
Osoff's Manager Haworth Orders Reporter to Leave Campaign Speech
Jon Osoff’s campaign barred Washington Free Beacon reporter, Brent Scher from covering a speech to Osoff supporters on the eve of the special election.
The reporter was approached immediately upon entering the event by Osoff spokesman, Sacha Haworth, who then escorted him out. When Scher asked why he could not cover the event, Haworth only said generically “Thank you very much for your interest in covering our race.”
Scher then asked why the Free Beacon was not allowed to cover the race despite its interest, and Haworth said again, “Thank you very much for your interest in covering our race.” Prior to the ouster, the Osoff campaign has also refused to provide any campaign scheduling information to the Free Beacon.
Many other reporters were, however allowed to enter. Reporters from CNN, Huffington Post, and The New York Times were among those who criticized the campaign for preventing Scher from covering the event.
This should come as no surprise as the polarization in America continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. In addition, barring media that covers issues from an unsupportive perspective goes back to the beginning of the Obama administration.
Attempts To Sink Trump Via Menage Trois?

The Anatomy of a Lie!
The mainstream media has pushed a narrative to the extreme by doubling-down with a twist and double-speak, telling a story with no real facts or evidence. One example of this molding of the “narrative” occurred on Friday, June 16th. It involves six authors, two news agencies, one “spokesman”, and a June 12th statement from a has-been from the past in an interview with yet another news reporting agency, ABC.
The major components of this story come from a CNN report and a June 14th Washington Post report that required a whopping six reporters. The first two, Faith Karimi and Evan Perez, are from CNN, and Devlin Barrett, Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima, and Sari Horowitz, are from Washington Post. Based on the quality of writing for both stories, it is possible to see why a total of six writers were required.
The story is another effort by both major organizations to turn the “Russian” collusion story into a “President Trump obstructed story”. As in the previous narrative, CNN and Washington Post use the continued platform of alleging based on statements of “officials”, “sources”, “anonymous sources”, “sources close to…”, and “sources familiar with…”
On Friday, June 16, 2017, CNN reportedly spoke to Peter Carr, an apparent “spokesman” for Robert Mueller. Carr happens to be the only person actually named as having spoken to a reporter, at in this case, CNN. According to Carr, Mueller has brought 13 “high powered” lawyers on board to handle the “Russian Investigation” with plans to hire more.
Apparently the names of five of the attorneys are known but the other 8 have not yet been identified. Two allegedly come from Mueller’s old law firm, Wilmer Hale and another, Andrew Weissman, is given accolades by CNN for having led the Enron investigation.
After this is mentioned, the writers for CNN went straight to a quote from Ken Star during an ABC News interview. The quote, “That is great, great team of complete professionals, so let’s let him do his job.” CNN mentions that Ken Star was the independent counsel whose investigation into Bill Clinton caused the former president’s impeachment.
On Saturday, June 10, 2017, ACT for America staged , anti-Sharia law rallies that took place in cities all over the United States.
With so much hatred existing within the mainstream media, citizens have taken it upon themselves to record footage and provide narration for what is happening.
The Washington Post and other mainstream sources claim that this is a "white supremacist", comprised of "racists", "Islamaphobes", and "anti-government" militias.
However, it is apparent from this citizen reporter's camera lens and interaction, that this the media's depiction of the "truth" is questionable at best.
Media Encourages Violence
Five Wounded When Man Goes On Shooting Rampage
James T. Hodgkinson opened fire at Republicans, injuring five people, at a baseball field in Alexandria Virginia. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, congressional staffer Zachary Barth, and three others were shot. The victims are all expected to recover and the shooter is dead.
While the mainstream media has several news reports on the incident circulating, none of the “news” outlets are identifying or claiming responsibility for their role in what caused Hodgkinson to snap and go on a rampage.
A review of Hodgkinson’s Facebook page shows that he was a Bernie Sanders supporter who literally hated President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. The hatred that he had was obviously based on the typical rhetoric of the left.
However, almost all “news” information released by the mainstream media is manipulated to fit the leftist narrative. Therefore, in addition to school indoctrination, which is where this hatred starts, it can also be said that what is considered “news reporting” today is what fuels the type of rage that caused Hodgkinson to go on a rampage.
