Look What Happened Wednesday

  • Attorney General Lisa Madigan on Wednesday asked the state’s top court to reverse a lower court’s ruling that the 2013 pension reform bill is unconstitutional.

    Madigan’s office filed a notice of appeal less than a week after a Sangamon County judge ruled the 2013 law violated the Illinois State Constitution’s clause on state pensions. Her move begins the appeals process and paves the way for a legal showdown before the Illinois Supreme Court.

    On Friday, Sangamon County Circuit Judge John Belz ruled in favor of state employees and retirees who sued to block the state’s landmark pension overhaul.

    In his ruling, Belz found that the constitution’s “protection against the diminishment or impairment of pension benefits is absolute and without exception.”
We certainly hope she uses the same "emergency" argument and gets laughed out of court. And could someone remind us about which party exactly is the one filing, appealing and presenting this case again? Thanks in advance.

Off Topic but Important

Does anyone from the 020 know if there was any Special Attention issued for that NYT reporter's address on North Wayne Avenue?

Have they observed a U-Haul truck in front?

The New York Times should fire those reporters and their editor for that stunt, issue an apology and make sure that does not happen again.

Not that I watch the local TV news anymore but this would have been a story they should have picked up. It would have been a cautionary to reporters everywhere. What those NYT did was to endanger that Officer and his family at their home. If it would have been firebombed in the middle of the night then what.

Even the old school Mafia never screwed with the family of any honest cop.

I will put money on it that Dean and his pals have sealed an endorsment for Rahm as well in exchange for the contract. One of Dean's chubby retired guys from area 5 has already been heard saying that we should have endorsed Lisa instead if "sticking a stick in her father's eye".

Little Lisa has company in the: 'I'm Stoo-pid So I File Dumb Lawsuits' category. I saw a crawler on FoxNews this morning that CCSA, Anita Alvarez is filing a lawsuit against Wells Fargo Bank.

And the reason for this stoo-pid lawsuit you ask, well get ready...it's a doozy...y'all better sit down...here it comes
-->'Predatory Mortgage Lending that 'targeted' Minorities, The Poor, and Single Women'<--

Yep, Anita is going after Wells Fargo for giving mortgages to the exact f--king group of people that Obama, Jesse Jackson, and every Democrat sucking air in Wash DC *compelled banks* to give mortgages to! With the threat of the FedGov coming down on them like the wrath of God if they didn't seek these High-Risk deadbeats out for loans!

It's also kind of odd that Wells Fargo was singled out and not other big banks like say JP Morgan Chase. Not to mention that the 'Housing Bubble' / 'Mortgage Crisis' was a few years ago so it seems she's little late. Or maybe Wells Fargo didn't funnel enough money into Anita's checking account?

Anywho, I don't see how this lawsuit could win, though that may not be the goal. It could be a ploy just to get Wells Fargo rattled and settle for a tidy sum. The DOJ and the SEC does that on a regular basis -- Pay Us or Else!

You are so full of shit. So you want to send this case to trial? Then everytime a police officer shoots someone you want to send the officer to trial? Normally, the detectives bring the information to a prosecutor and he decides if charges will be brought. Is fo, the person is arrested and goes for a preliminary hearing then onto the grand jury or sometimes a direct indictment. By your standards, the courts would be overwhelmed and police officers would be subjected to the stress, turmoil and cost of trial and it would have taken about 2 years. You are a nitwit and buying into the hype that no police officer should ever shoot an unarmed person.

To the nitwit posting the daily beast article...the prosecutor did not even have to take it to a grand jury. He could have reviewed the overwhelming evidence in favor of Wilson and said this is justified. Also I'm tired of people comparing a police involved shooting to some type of gang banging ghetto murder. They are not the same! Jesus the ignorance of people over this case is insane.

"Nearly two times a week in the United States, a white police officer killed a black person during a seven-year period ending in 2012"

In misleading journalist mumbo jumbo the truth stat is revealed in paragraph 2 -

"On average, there were 96 such incidents among at least 400 police killings each year that were reported to the FBI by local police"

Why not state the truth: In over 75% of police shooting reported to the FBI since 2005 there is no racial component whatsoever.

And here is another truth: Last year out of 2491 black murder victims 2245 were shot by other blacks. (2013 FBI stats)

These journalists and many others are literally shouting "fire" in a crowded theater when there is no fire and should be held criminally liable for their actions.

Obama White House to Promote Ferguson Indoctrination – Including Classroom Memorials to Mike Brown

Posted by Kristinn Taylor on Friday, November 28, 2014, 9:20 PM

"Teaching moments..."

“Create a classroom memorial.

“During the first few weeks of classes, students can create a memorial to Michael Brown on a classroom bulletin board. This activity involves having students use whatever they feel skilled in to create something that would honor Michael Brown and other people who have been victims of police and other violence. Students may choose to draw, write poetry, design art pieces, paint, or collect news clippings. Students can use this opportunity to create a counter-narrative to negative stories and images about Ferguson and Michael Brown, or even to document stories and images they have seen in the media about the case. Engaging in this type of activity allows teachers to understand youth strengths and form classroom solidarity.”

I cannot believe this. A Ferguson protestor accidentally burned his own residence down after throwing a Molotov cocktail through his own front window. It was so smoky he thought the building was some other business or something. How could the fire department let this happen? Where were the undercover protest police to protect him from doing this by helping him get gas from the BP and showing him how to properly make it? At least then they could've cuffed and pinched him before he threw it. That makes for one more homeless family in the dead of winter.

Nooooooo!
No no no!

This is DIFFERENT damn it!

Y'see... That racist cop Darren Wilson deserved to have his new address outed because the Ferguson Grand Jury failed to "punish" him for killing the lefty lib-tard, white guilter & violent urban thug martyr, Saint Michael Brown.

"How DARE you conservative, right wing some-kind-of-phobes publish MY address!"

Lolz @ having Occupy standing guard at her residence with crates of piss/shit bottles instead of the much hated and reviled Police.

Julie Bosman is a whining coward and a fucking hypocrite for seeking Police protection.

This smug, clueless and self-satisfied bitch is yet another far too cutesy, smart and clever lefty who laughed up their sleeves at people who serve in manly, martial endeavors that stand for a "something" that their "equality means everybody must squat to pee" ilk can't wrap their little propeller heads around like Policing and the Military.

The cultural script has been flipped and now it seems that Policemen and Military members are the ones who are "wrong," "funny in the head" and in dire need fixing/changing/reprogramming.

As far as The Police go?
The flipping of he cultural script is making it easy
for government sponsored by the highest corporate
bidders to go all in and try to bust us out of our earned and lawfully contributed (only on our parts) pensions.

"Fuck 'em... They're only cops."

Our military brethren are hearing similar shit-talk...

These white guilting, loony-left, Alinskite aligned fools want to hamstring, bog down and emasculate these institutions with nanny state feel-good, "let's enact more rules" bullshit to gain their utopia.

The motherfuckers who got picked last for playground games are now in charge?

Slightly O/T:
We came across something that sums up the sorry state of affairs.

Teachers and administrators at a public school banned all "ball type competitive games" at recess...

O_o? o_o? o_O?

Do you or do you NOT fear for this nation's future?

Can you or can you NOT see that rules are being changed, processes are being gamed and power is being taken away from upright people to effect a course of correction at the grassroots and national levels with the soon to be democratic voting hordes being waved over to insure that we won't be able to take this nation back?

It's too much like right to honor the law.
The dirty bastards like Mike Madigan seek to overturn/change/subvert the law to their own design and purpose.

“During the first few weeks of classes, students can create a memorial to Michael Brown on a classroom bulletin board. This activity involves having students use whatever they feel skilled in to create something that would honor Michael Brown and other people who have been victims of police and other violence. Students may choose to draw, write poetry, design art pieces, paint, or collect news clippings. Students can use this opportunity to create a counter-narrative to negative stories and images about Ferguson and Michael Brown, or even to document stories and images they have seen in the media about the case. Engaging in this type of activity allows teachers to understand youth strengths and form classroom solidarity.”

I'm thinking a blunt (displays manual dexterity), a mugshot (photography skillset) and maybe a digital recording of step-daddy's touching, emotional salute to Brown, on a continuous loop..."Burn this bitch down, burn this bitch down" would be a fitting and respectful tribute.

Lisa Madidgan has, by law, an obligation to defend the state in these matters. But, there is case law that goes back decades that is on the side of Illinois. It could be overturned.

11/29/2014 09:49:00 AM

Yes, she is obligated to do so.
She also stated she plans to use the exact same argument she used in her last, losing pension case.

Police shut down mysterious 'Oath Keepers' guarding rooftops in downtown Ferguson

"FERGUSON • Following a night of arson fires and bashed storefronts that hit close to home, Greg Hildebrand stood naked Tuesday, drying off from a needed shower, when he noticed somebody on the rooftop.

“I opened the window and said, ‘Hey, can I help you?’” said Hildebrand, 35, a website developer.

"The man said he was security and would be up there at night with others to protect the pocket of second-story apartments and lower-level storefronts near the Ferguson Police Department. A day earlier, rioters had broken out windows below Hildebrand’s apartment in the 100 block of South Florissant Road and torched a nearby beauty supply store.

“I am in the middle of a difficult spot,” Hildebrand said. “I feel a lot better having those guys up on the roof.”

"But he wasn’t clear exactly who “those guys” were or where they came from.

"Puzzled and alarmed protesters have wondered, too — some accusing the mysterious guards in military fatigues of being in the Ku Klux Klan.

"In fact, they are volunteers affiliated with a 35,000-member national organization called Oath Keepers. Yale Law School graduate and libertarian Stewart Rhodes said by telephone from Montana that he founded the group in 2009 to protect constitutional rights, including those of protesters confronted by what he described as overly militarized police.

"Police questioned group members early in the week and allowed them to stay. But Saturday, after media inquiries, St. Louis County police officers ordered the Oath Keepers to leave the rooftops.

"[One] leader, who would give only his first name, Sam, described himself as a weapons engineer from the St. Louis area who has done security contracting for the U.S. government. He said he was motivated to help after seeing a CNN story featuring extensive damage to Natalie’s Cake’s & More, which also helped generate thousands of dollars in donations for the small business.

"Sam said he contacted owner Natalie Dubose and told her he was going to secure her store and others.

“She started crying,” Sam said.

"Oath Keepers boarded up a bunch of the storefronts and started night rotations on several rooftops. Sam said he vetted volunteers to ensure there weren’t any “racists” or “people with an ax to grind.” He said he picked volunteers who “have seen the elephant and are calm under fire.”

"Fearing more arsonists, Oath Keeper volunteers kept buckets of water, fire extinguishers and other nonlethal weapons on the rooftops. Some are also armed with rifles that aren’t available at Walmart and Cabela’s..."

New York Times reporters Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson published the address of Darren Wilson in the New York Times so here are their addresses.

GotNews.com strenuously objects to publishing the addresses of individuals who are being targeted with death threats.

GotNews.com published the address of Ebola patient Nina Pham so that people could avoid going to her Dallas apartment.

But it would also be wrong to publish the addresses of journalists without their consent.

It would be wrong, for example, to publish Bosman’s address at

5620 N WAYNE AVE APT 2
CHICAGO, IL 60660-4204
COOK COUNTY

It would be similarly wrong to publish the address of Robertson, too.

1113 N DUPRE ST
NEW ORLEANS, LA 70119-3203
ORLEANS COUNTY

So why do journalists think they are beyond examination?

How does it advance the story to know where Darren Wilson and his newly wed live?

Just struck my mind that the original "Oath Keepers" story, which described volunteers as "intensely-trained active-duty police officers, military veterans, EMTs, and other first responders" was heavily neutered and redacted by the time I got around to putting it up here...

Figures.

Since protests are so popular these days , why don't you guys and all ur comrades state-wide , set a date and stage a gigantic protest in front of the State Capitol building down in Springfield . It's appalling the way this is being 'handled' and if anyone deserves better treatment it's you guys . Peace & good luck .

I cannot believe this. A Ferguson protestor accidentally burned his own residence down after throwing a Molotov cocktail through his own front window. It was so smoky he thought the building was some other business or something. How could the fire department let this happen? Where were the undercover protest police to protect him from doing this by helping him get gas from the BP and showing him how to properly make it? At least then they could've cuffed and pinched him before he threw it. That makes for one more homeless family in the dead of winter.

Case started in state court system, not federal court system. It would have to have some serious US Constitutional issues for SCOTUS to take the case. I doubt it. Nothing in the US Constitution about pension benefits.
