Rahm Emanuel’s son Zach was mugged in the 4200 block of North Hermitage Avenue in Chicago.
The Chicago Tribune reported, via Rebel Pundit:

Zach Emanuel was talking on his cell phone on the street in the 4200 block of North Hermitage Avenue in the Ravenswood neighborhood when two unknown males approached him from behind, according to the police report.

One of them “placed his arm around the victim’s neck in a rear chokehold,” and the second one struck the teen with a fist, knocking him to the ground. The robbers took the teen’s cell phone and patted him down, the police report said.

“The offenders then asked the victim ‘What else you got?’ (and) forced the victim to enter his security code to unlock the phone,” the police report said.

The robbers then ran away. The teen was treated for cuts and bruises on his face by a personal physician at his home, according to the report.

 

 

Oh Brother… Nancy Pelosi: Obamacare is “Honoring Our Founders”(Video)

It is almost certain that had Nancy Pelosi lived during the time of this nation’s founding, the unhinged statements which she makes on a regular basis would have caused many a Founding Fathers’ face-palm.

Statements like the one she spoke at the recent Women Rule Summit in Washington D.C., where she said that Obamacare is actually honoring the Founders (17:06-18:19)

One of the reasons I’m still in Congress is to protect the Affordable Care Act. Which I think is one of the most transformational thing of a generation of people in Congress. It stands right up there with Social Security. With Medicare and Medicaid, affordable care, access, quality healthcare for all Americans.

No longer will being a woman be a preexisting medical condition. This is a big deal in terms of ending that discrimination. No more preexisting conditions as a deterrent to getting a policy, no lifetime caps. Really important. Honoring our Founders. Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness. A healthier life. The freedom to pursue your happiness without being policy locked to a job. Instead having the freedom to change jobs, start a business. Be entrepreneurial and be self-employed.

So that to me is not just a bill and a law, but a transformation in our society.”

Video Below:

It’s clear that forcing a law on the American people, one that the majority did not want to begin with, and essentially mandates that every American citizen buy a product stipulated by the Federal Government or pay a tax…er fine, only because they were born in this country, is exactly the kind of thing the Founding Fathers would support. Um, yea…right.

For the record… Nancy Pelosi also believes that San Francisco is the model for living the Gospel.

 

The Obama Doctrine: President Praises Tyrants – Slams Ally Canada in Same Press Conference

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, December 20, 2014, 12:04 PM

The Obama Doctrine — Coddle Dictators and Attack Your Allies
obama sony
And Obama upset Sony executives when he was not honest about their reaching out to the White House.

On Friday Barack Obama held his last press conference of the year before jetting off to Hawaii for a 17 day vacation.
Obama told reporters he joked with Communist dictator Raul Castro this week.

My opening comments took about 15 minutes which is an awful long time on the phone. At the end of that he said, “Mr. President, you’re still a young man.” I apologized for taking such a long time before we engaged in a conversation. You’re still a young man and you still have a chance to break Fidel’s record which is seven hours straight… And then President Castro delivered his own opening remarks which lasted twice as long as mine. And, I said, “It obviously runs in the family.”

Minutes later in the press conference Barack Obama slammed America’s neighbor Canada.
Russia Today reported:

President Obama said building the Keystone XL pipeline – which would run from the Canadian tar sands into the United States – would not lead to lower gasoline prices for Americans. Additionally, Obama said it would create a couple of thousand temporary jobs until construction is completed, but the project would mainly benefit Canadian oil companies that need to get their oil to the Gulf of Mexico in order to see it on the world market.

“At issue in Keystone is not American oil. It is Canadian oil that is drawn out of the tar sands in Canada,” said the president. “That oil currently is being shipped out through rail or trucks, and it would save Canadian oil companies and the Canadian oil industry an enormous amount of money if they can simply pipe it all the way through the United States down to the Gulf.”

TransCanada corrected Barack Obama in a statement they released after his public attacks.

The Keystone system is about helping our Canadian and American customers — which includes leading U.S. oil producers and refiners — get a safe, secure and reliable supply of crude oils they need to create products we all need — gasoline, diesel, aviation fuels and many other products we use and consume here in North America,” spokesman Shawn Howard said. “After being approved, Keystone XL will employ thousands of skilled American pipeline industry workers in the United States.

He also said there are no plans to export this oil overseas.

 

North Korea Denies Sony Hack Attack – Threatens US

North Korea said the US accusations that it was involved in the Sony hack attack were “groundless slander.”

Pyongyang denied they were behind the Sony hack attack on Saturday. The North Koreans also invited the US to find the culprits and threatened “grave consequences” if the Americans rejected their proposal.
The BBC reported:

North Korea has offered to hold a joint inquiry with the United States into a cyber-attack on Sony Pictures, strongly denying US claims that it is behind it.

The North’s foreign ministry accused the US government of “spreading groundless allegations” and said a probe would refute the allegations.

The attack and subsequent threats against cinemas led Sony to cancel the release of The Interview, a satire…

…On Saturday, the North Korean foreign ministry said: “As the United States is spreading groundless allegations and slandering us, we propose a joint investigation with it into this incident.”

Without resorting to such tortures as were used by the US CIA, we have means to prove that this incident has nothing to do with us.

The statement said there would be “grave consequences” if the Americans rejected their inquiry proposal.

Sony cancelled their movie “The Interview” this week due to threats from hackers.

 

Brilliant! Obama Sends Four More Gitmo Detainees BACK TO AFGHANISTAN

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, December 20, 2014, 10:12 AM

Brilliant!
Obama released four top Gitmo detainees on Saturday.
He sent them back to Afghanistan.
gitmo
A report released by the House Armed Services subcommittee in 2012 revealed that 27% of Gitmo detainees return to a life of terror after their release.

At least 168 times released Gitmo detainees have returned to terrorism.

Four more Gitmo detainees were sent back home on Saturday.
Aljazeera America reported:

Four detainees have been released from the Guantanamo Bay at the request of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, the U.S. Department of Defense confirmed Saturday.

Shawali Khan, Khi Ali Gul, Abdul Ghani and Mohammed Zahir have been repatriated to Afghanistan after what the Pentagon called a “comprehensive review” of their case.

The men become the latest detainees released from Guantanamo, which President Barack Obama has committed to shuttering gradually. Earlier this month, six detainees were released to Uruguay.

Saturday’s release, which was coordinated with the Afghan government, leaves 132 detainees remaining at Guantanamo Bay.

Lawyers for Khan, who was held in Guantanamo for 11 years without charge, welcomed the release of their client.

“Shawali was sent to Guantanamo on the flimsiest of allegations that were implausible on their face and never properly investigated,” said lawyers with the Center for Constitutional Rights, in a statement.

The transfers will bring the prison’s population down to 131, with 63 of the remaining detainees already cleared for removal.

It Figures… Official Government Statistics Don’t Support the Professional Race Hustlers

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, December 20, 2014, 9:02 AM

More bad news for race-hustlers and protest mobs–
hands up don't shoot ferguson
“Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” was a myth. Michael Brown was shot dead while charging Officer Darren Wilson like a bull.

Conservative Larry Elder broke down the statistics this week on police shootings.
Police shootings, nationwide, are down dramatically in the last 20 years. And nearly three times as many whites were shot dead by police than blacks.
Townhall reported:

In 2012, according to the CDC, 140 blacks were killed by police. That same year 386 whites were killed by police. Over the 13-year period from 1999 to 2011, the CDC reports that 2,151 whites were killed by cops — and 1,130 blacks were killed by cops.

Police shootings, nationwide, are down dramatically from what they were 20 or 30 years ago. The CDC reported that in 1968, shootings by law enforcement — called “legal intervention” by the CDC — was the cause of death for 8.6 out of every million blacks. For whites the rate was was .9 deaths per million.

By 2011, law enforcement shootings caused 2.74 deaths for every million blacks, and 1.28 deaths for every million whites. While the death-by-cop rate for whites has held pretty steady over these last 45 years, hovering just above or below the one-in-a-million level, the rate for blacks has fallen. In 1981, black deaths by cop stood at four in a million, but since 2000 has remained just above or below two in a million.

So what’s driving this notion that there is now an “epidemic” of white cops shooting blacks when in the last several decades the numbers of blacks killed by cops are down nearly 75 percent?

Off-Duty Police Officer Shot Multiple Times in North St. Louis

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 9:31 PM

A 28 year-old off-duty police officer was shot dead in North St. Louis on Friday afternoon.


FOX 2 reported:

A 28-year-old off-duty police officer has been shot in the Hyde Park neighborhood in North St. Louis. The shooting happened at around 4pm at 22nd street and Breman.

Police say that the officer was shot multiple times. It is not clear if he returned fire. He was shot in the lower extremities and his injuries do not appear to be life threatening. The St. Louis Municipal Department says the officer is in critical but stable condition.

Police are not sure exactly what prompted the attack on the officer. He was driving his personal car north on 25th street when people in a car coming south opened fire. Police recovered physical evidence at the scene and they have the officer’s own car which was struck several times by bullets. He probably won’t be able to speak about what happened until Saturday.

“We don`t know what transpired but the occupants of the other vehicle opened fire he was struck a number of times. He drove a short distance where someone else took over his vehicle. We think it was someone who was not inside the car with him at that time. They then drove him to the hospital where he was taken into surgery.” said Capt. Michael Sack of the St. Louis Police Department.

 

Greta: Why Doesn’t Sony Put The Interview on Their Website & Let Matt Drudge Do a Link? (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 6:57 PM

the interview

Deadline.com legal editor Dominic Patten joined Greta Van Susteren tonight to discuss the Sony hacking scandal.
Dominic told Greta that Sony was in between a rock and hard place and was forced to scrap the movie:

I think you’re caught between a rock and a hard place in the new digital world… Some people say, “Well why don’t Sony put it on VOD?” Or George Clooney talked about, “Why don’t we put it online?” Which is also, I might add what Governor Romney said. But here’s the issue with that. You can’t just put something online even if you need to. Even with Sony who has their own video-on-demand service. You need to put it up on Direct TV or Comcast or Time-Warner Cable. Do they want to take those risks? Right now, nobody does.

Greta Van Susteren offered a solution tonight:

“They could put it on their website and Matt Drudge could do a link, I think.”

Via On the Record:

If Hollywood had any guts they’d put the movie online.
But, they don’t.

 

Sony Fires Back at Obama: Actually We Did Call the White House – Several Times (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 5:53 PM

obama sony

Barack Obama told reporters today that Sony should not have canceled “The Interview” and that they should have called him.

Sony fired back at Obama after the press conference saying they had several conversations with the Obama White House before and after the movie was canceled.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:

After President Obama criticized Sony for its decision to cancel The Interview’s release after theater chains decided not to show the film, the studio has issued a statement elaborating on the move.

“The decision not to move forward with the December 25 theatrical release of The Interview was made as a result of the majority of the nation’s theater owners choosing not to screen the film,” the statement said. “This was their decision.”

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that Sony was surprised by the president’s comments and did, in fact, have many conversations with the White House both before and after the movie was pulled Wednesday. That would fly in the face of President Obama’s claim that the studio never approached him for advice on how to handle the threats of violence that invoked the 9/11 terror attacks.
