Chicago's newest mayor, Brandon Johnson, slammed "raggedy" and "right-wing" GOP extremists for what ails his cesspool of a crime-ridden city that regularly makes national headlines for its weekend murder-by-gun counts -- always curious, given the strict policies that don't allow anyone to walk about with guns.

Natural immunity proves better than COVID shots. No duh

A new coronavirus study from Estonia involving a pool of 329,496 adults found -- in the words of one researcher -- "natural immunity offers stronger and longer-lasting protection against infection, symptoms and hospitalization" than COVID shots.

Donald Trump’s trial by kangaroo is dangerous for all Americans

Judge Engoron has gone off the deep end with his issuance of gag orders and sanctions over violations of gag orders against Trump. First Amendment? Freedom of speech? Engoron is one step from stuffing Trump in a cage and putting him in a corner of the courtroom, a la Russia style. Published November 17, 2023

Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, R-Ga., arrives on Capitol Hill in Washington, Oct. 24, 2023. A federal judge rejected Taylor Greene’s request to have an upstate New York man convicted of sending her threatening voicemails pay $65,000 for her Georgia home’s security fence. Joseph Morelli pleaded guilty in February to threatening the Republican congresswoman in several calls in 2022 to her Washington, D.C., office. He was sentenced to three months in prison in August. Lawyers for the government argued that Greene’s security expenses stemmed from the threats. But U.S. District Judge Brenda Kay Sannes denied the request in a ruling Tuesday, Nov. 14 saying Greene did not suffer a property loss. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, file)

Sen. Chuck Schumer, on Israel, gets one right

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is Jewish -- his family is Jewish, from western Ukraine -- but he's a Democrat who's moved further and further left, ideologically speaking, as his political career has progressed.
