This is "Progressive"?

Everyone pretty much agrees aldercreature Arena is a scumbag. Following a contentious meeting with his constituents, he issued this statement via Twitter:


  • Insults hurled by 45th Ward Alderman John Arena at both the state of Indiana and his own constituents have triggered a detailed response by a group that studies the economic climate of Illinois and Indiana.

    In reaction to growing local opposition to a planned subsidized-housing development in his ward and citywide tax increases, Arena told constituents in a Facebook post, "Go ahead ... Move to Indiana and live in a Third-World economy with shit schools and low wages."

    Michael Lucci of the Illinois Policy Institute, a Chicago think tank, said his accusations about Illinois' neighbor were not only false, but that Indiana's economic climate is better than that of the Prairie State.

    “Arena shouldn’t describe it as a Third World country," Lucci told the Chicago City Wire. It’s ironic that he uses that phrase to describe Indiana when it’s not the case. Wages and income are growing faster in Indiana than Illinois.”
We're going to guess Arena hasn't attended a Chicago Public School in quite some time. He also seems to have failed basic economics and doesn't notice how many subcontracted employees and their vehicles seem to bear Indiana license plates nowadays.

If you had any doubts, get a load of his wife in this video, ripping on protestors and call them all......wait for it....RACISTS! for daring to oppose her husband's attempt to import an 8-story Section 8 project building across the street from 016.

He needs to be recalled people of his ward. Indiana has a surplus of funds in the bank, unlike this state of social programs that all failed. Chicago, Cook and the state just keep on taxing us all. Calling Indiana what he did to the home state of our V.P is deplorable.
Indiana papers and media will run with this. This guy opened a can of worm for himself. Hope we get to watch him walking in and out of Federal court this year. Quite sure he and his wife live well above their reported income.

Sorry for posting comment not related to the topic. But I just gotta bring this "HunchLab" bullshit that's going on in 009 to daylight and hopefully get some attention to it. We are now checking out a mobile phone everyday along with radios, taser, and bwc. And the mobile phone has this app call the HunchLab, which pulls up a map and real time gps of your location. It shows you boxes in the beat where you should go down on either a "high visibility car patrol" or "foot patrol" mission for the duration of 5 min of each box. On top of that, you are suppose to log your activity during the 5 min on a sheet of paper. What exactly does this BS technology accomplished besides making POs a sitting duck inside a box area (sometimes it's LESS than a one block radius). Is it so hard to hand out mission sheets at roll call and just draw an ev# and log it with paper and pen? I am open to technology to make the job easier, but this is such a drag and literally taking attention away from POs. This is like playing pokemon Go with a stupid phone while you are driving to hit those mission boxes. It suppose to make your job easier, not making it more complicated. In addition, we now have 2 POs sitting in that room , taking manpower OFF the street. What we need are SECURE RADIOS CHANNELS that the gangs can't listen to. I am ranting because this job is getting stupider and stupider everyday with this non-sense "predictive" technology dragging our feet. Gangbangers can always fool the shotspotter by firing off a couple round on one spot and commit to hit the actual target on another, while we are being send to the decoy location. 009 is already short on manpower, and with 2 POs sitting in the "situation room" daily, we can only hope that on one will get hurt. At least not by being thrown under the bus by the brass.

Hey AlderIdiot Arena - If you want Section 8 that much - then put it on your block. Have your wife provide after school tutoring with free snacks. Cook Sunday dinner for the downtrodden. Then check your house for missing property. If you are that preoccupied with the poor - move to another ward and find plenty of peoples and folks to cater to your hearts content. Go South, you miniature Jason Ervin.

Ald. Arena's Section 8 development means more crime, lower property values in Jefferson Park, says expert

“Violent crime is absolutely greater in neighborhoods of resettlement,” he said. “HUD has lied. In many instances, people being moved into these once middle-class neighborhoods with nothing more than the housing vouchers handed to them are coming from some of the highest crime-impacted areas in the country, and they’re taking the habits with them.”

Hmmmmm. I thought the Alderman's comments were out-of-line but when I heard his wife. Imagine living next to her - NO THANKS.

Chicago - you HAVE to wake up. First order of business, cut back the number of Aldermen to 20. This guy Arena has nominated himself to be one of the Aldermen who should be cut.

This is the outside, unvarnished perspective on what Chicago is: It is a Shit-hole, run by narcissists, egotists and some racists(black ones), that caters more to third-world refugees and illegals than it does to its citizens. Its police department has been thoroughly pussified and de-balled. It is unsafe to come down for anything.

Its downtown is "hanging on" but I would NOT be investing anything into Chicago.

You have muggings going on right around State and Adams? Yeah, I'll be coming down real soon to spend some money.

Chicago may be too late to turn itself around. It is in a perpetual downward spiral led by the leaderless.

Stop asking for the State to bail out a long list of mistakes made by mismanagement. A HUGE lesson to be learned by all the incompetent, Political Elite - Money doesn't grow on Trees.

Arena and most of the Dummycrats in Illinois and the rest of the country, on their anti-Trump Rampage seem to forget: President Trump, (I really feel good saying that.) was a Democrat until 2007. President Trump, contributed $50,000 to the Rahm/Ballerina's first campaign. He also contributed to the Alderjerk in the Ward where Trump Tower is located. So Mr. Arena needs to be specific, since he is part of the Party that Trump was once a member of. Note: Mr. Arena is a Founding Member of the Progressive Reform Coalition. Anything with the term "Progressive" in it, means Radical/Anti America, and probably funded by George Soros. Apparently the knuckle dragging residents of his Ward, were too busy working two jobs to pay their inflated taxes, and for parochial schools, because the public schools are inferior, to have realized that they were electing someone who is philosophically so far to the Left, that he virtually represents the politics that their ancestors fled from in Eastern Europe! Arena is a piece of shit, that needs to be flushed down the toilet in the next primary. Fu&k Rahm & his "Progressive" Communist bullshit! Baby"G"

CPD here and a part time Hoosier. Will be FT in a few short years. The schools in my all Republican run County are mostly new as are the libraries. They are very modern, I might add. My R.E. taxes automatically decreased upon the completion of the above construction projects. We have Amish in my County. Those Amish have hoes, too, but they are used for vegetable and flower gardens. Hard to explain to City-Folk (People). I hear gunshots, too, but that just means someone put supper on the table or dispatched a varmint from their field. I loved the third world economy comment. Truly amusing. Arena should jump on 80/90 or I65 and actually tour the State before he opens his mouth.

He's typical of every politician in Chicago, Cook County and Illinois. Ignorant, low class, crooked, full of crap, useless and not qualified to clean a toilet. This is what low information voters put into office. This is the same man who had his people threaten city workers who were vocal about not wanting the projects in their neighborhood. They were told their posts on Facebook were being watched and they would lose their city jobs. This whole city is filthy dirty with scum in office and he's one of the biggest scumbags. Don't forget about his psychotic wife was was recorded yelling at people last week. Imagine if a police or fireman said things that Arena says. He would be the first person to have them removed from the city's payroll. The politicians think they're kings and queens. Hopefully the day is near when citizens wake up from their stupid comas and drain the swamp here.

Let's talk CPS!! Rumor has it all CPD officers will be removed from Chicago Pubic high schools at schools year end whenever that will be. Many years after the unit was disbanded and the intergovernmental agreement from the Board of Ed expired which repayed CPD for the services due to being broke. CPS alleges the CPD intimidates also are enticing students bad behavior along with reporting all the things CPS adminastrators do not want reported.(Damage Control) The new model calls for restorative justice which in turn equals no discipline. ( ( Throw the drugs away, let the kids fight, sex cases) More sweeping it under the rug.No reports and no arrests mean no problems. Higher graduation rates no homework and free food let's see how this works. Oh and let's not forget ALL the CPS employees not adhering to the residency policies that the principals administrate under the don't ask don't tell motto. Your tax dollars at work.

I'm a 36-year retiree who just moved to Indiana, let's total up the true facts:

IL Property Taxes: 1,800 sq ft 100 yr old house, typical city lot: $5,400
IN Property Taxes: 2,600 sq ft 25 yr old house, 1/4 acre lot: $2,450

Car insurance on wife's 2015 vehicle in IL: $2,100/yr
Car insurance on wife's 2015 vehicle in IN: $900/yr (but the plates cost $325)

I keep hearing- "But they tax your pension in IN"- this is true, but the taxes are offset by the other savings, including the above.

And the schools here are just fine, Alder-creatures, but of course we don't have Karen Lewis running the union.

While I do have to admit my pension is less than that of a CPD officer, I could live anywhere in my county (and actually outside if I didn't want a take home car). My pension fund appears to be well funded (even though Obama stole millions from it with Chrysler take over, etc.)

Oh, the most important part my taxes are LOTS, LOTS less than what my compatriots pay in Crook County. All in all, would have to say my 3rd world neighborhood isn't all that bad.

Arena's slum developer, Full Circle Communities LLC, needs HUD funding to build projects. The above named committees/legislators control funding for HUD. Make them aware of what's going on in Chicago. Expose Arena's hate to them. Hopefully they'll send the funding elsewhere.

LOL. Hey asshole Arena; not only is Indiana NOT a 'third world economy' -- by every study and statistical analysis available, ILLINOIS is you goof.

And Jackass, your little Section Eight wet-dream WILL turn the neighborhood this building is in into a Third World Country with rising crime and falling property values. It will turn faster than you can say; "Stick 'em up Motherf--ker. Gibs me all yo' money!"

Here's a nice article in the 'Chicago City Wire' on how these low-income housing projects ALWAYS bring disaster to the new area. Ald. Arena's Section 8 development means more crime, lower property values in Jefferson Park, says expert.

Facts are facts Alder-Creature Area, but thanks to the ingrained life-style of the residents coming from 'Da Hood' things never go well. That is, unless your goal is to turn an area into Mogadishu.

One must embrace diversity! Think of all the inclusiveness and equality putting those old fashioned narrow minded thoughts aside. Look at your children's schoolbooks. Inclusiveness and diversity are prevailing themes in the school complexes from pre-school to post graduate studies conditioning all to accept these progressive commandments.

Heck, even the aclu can't find fault with relocating the disadvantaged with the struggling middle class. Strength is derived from assimilation not exclusion. Just as one must accept another nation's problem migrants, one must embrace the relocation of subsidized migrants from within. Resist, organize, campaign, register new voters and organize your community. We shall overcome.

I remember with Patrick Levar retired and that election resulted in a run off between John Garrido and John Arena. I was telling my friends and co-workers to vote for Garrido so we can have a copper in city hall. I heard all kinds of excuses NOT to vote for him. Guys didn't want him to get a better pension, fuck him I know this about him, I know that stuff. Well Garrido lost buy 27 votes, I know Five coppers that didn't vote for him, so really they voted for Arena. Now Garrido will never win running against Arena so he can do anything he wants. Don't complain now, blame the coppers who didn't vote for Garrido or who just didn't vote at all.

Don't worry those gentlemen in that new building wont bother you or your family, and your property value wont decrease

Just a similar case study. Other communities raised little objection to federally funded senior assisted living. After all, who can object to old people living nearby. Federal law prohibits housing discrimination based on so many sets of circumstances. Well dopeheads on disability with their American with disability protections cannot be excluded. So the community was duped into believing that only old folks could live there. And of course the dopeheads brought in their "visitors" and one could only imagine the problems which were addressed on so many levels. Be weary of good intentions which can be exploited by society's perpetual scammers. And don't forget the "federal housing protections" which can be used against the best interests of your community.

We are now checking out a mobile phone everyday along with radios, taser, and bwc. And the mobile phone has this app call the HunchLab, which pulls up a map and real time gps of your location. It shows you boxes in the beat where you should go down on either a "high visibility car patrol" or "foot patrol" mission for the duration of 5 min of each box. On top of that, you are suppose to log your activity during the 5 min on a sheet of paper. What exactly does this BS technology accomplished besides making POs a sitting duck inside a box area (sometimes it's LESS than a one block radius). Is it so hard to hand out mission sheets at roll call and just draw an ev# and log it with paper and pen? I am open to technology to make the job easier, but this is such a drag and literally taking attention away from POs. This is like playing pokemon Go with a stupid phone while you are driving to hit those mission boxes. It suppose to make your job easier, not making it more complicated. In addition, we now have 2 POs sitting in that room , taking manpower OFF the street. What we need are SECURE RADIOS CHANNELS that the gangs can't listen to. I am ranting because this job is getting stupider and stupider everyday with this non-sense "predictive" technology dragging our feet. Gangbangers can always fool the shotspotter by firing off a couple round on one spot and commit to hit the actual target on another, while we are being send to the decoy location. 009 is already short on manpower, and with 2 POs sitting in the "situation room" daily, we can only hope that on one will get hurt.

Yep go to Indiana where you will pay income tax on your retirement income regardless of where you earned it, pay county income, pay a new 10 cents per gallon gas tax, watch school teachers wait 4 or more years for a raise while property tax goes up every year not because they raise taxes but because they tell you your property is worth more, and then send inspectors out to look at your home and the personal property on it. State law, homes must be inspected by the counties.
And as far as running in the black, yes Indiana has a surplus in the budget, the taxpayers money that they don't spend to fix the roads, don't put traffic signals at major intersections, don't even paint the yellow center lines, don't plow the roads unless school buses are running.
Wages in Indiana suck, ask any Cop how many jobs he works to keep up with the cost of living, starting pay under $50k, top ranks don't make CPD Patrolmans pay, county jail guards make $36k a year. Sheriff's out here even ticket family members of co-workers for minor traffic. Auto & home insurance no different.
Medical care ? anyone I know out here with a serious issue goes to Rush, U o C, Northwestern.

Arena is the typical false-flagging Chicago
(read as Alinskyite) progressive democrat
talk-shit who gravitates towards politics.


Politics is THE WAY to use his head full o' bright,
(thoroughly obtuse) oppressively chirpy and cheerful,
full o' "let's form a circle and squat to pee"
feel-goodery...

"Multiculturalism Or Death," (and all the
societal ills it foretells,)is an intentionally
wrought, destructively destabilizing idea
that has played out in spectacular fashion.
Especially during the last eight of the previous
50 years of the "Great Society" flinging of good
taxpayer treasure into the entitlement/perpetual
grievance flaming privy hole.

Arena is the ignorant m/fer who pipes-up
at every group gathering to propose afflicting
the rest of everybody else with yet more intrusive
"rules" under the guise of "making us better people."
You know the type. Right?

"...And the meeting is adjourned?
>SIGH!< YES, Mr. Arena?"

"Hey! I have a good ideaaaa... MMMPH!"
>Instant USMC BLANKET PARTY<

STFU, sit the fuck down and leave law
abiding people the fuck alone is something
progressive just cannot abide. They need
to "be involved" to feel "necessary."

Progressive will NEVER peddle their misfit
ideals TO those who have self-segregated
from hard working, law-abiding society...
That shit be dangerous.

Ignorant and tone-deaf progressive bastards
like Arena live to afflict decent and hard
working people.

During the great Neolithic coming together
of humankind to form communities based on
common interests and mutual aid, the
progressives of the times were eventually
found out and cast out before they could
bring harm to the community.

They revel in the modern era because there
are no more big toothy/scratchy/hurty/scary
things lurking just beyond the glow of the campfire.

>Pop-Pop-Poppity-Pop-Pop-Pop!<

Or not...

It ain't "Racism."
It's just self-preservation and common sense.

Progressives think that such things
are mean and unfair.

2.) SEIU and teachers union did massive mailings on Arena's behalf targeted at the low information crowd calling Garrido a right winger who was going to do terrible things to them.

The Unstable and Delirious AlderStooge Arena is obviously trying to get that Sect 8 up, occupied, registered and Voting before Feb 2019.
If you're not familiar with the neighborhood Nadig Newspaper, there's a columnist Russ Stewart an accomplished attorney & political analyst.
This guy is hardly ever wrong.
Read his Mar 8, 2017 article at russstewart.com

Section 8'Arena is colonizing slums.
He is not for business or manufacturing, he has done nothing to create jobs and provide small business opportunity, he continues to support Rahm Emanuels tax and fee increases.

I'm hoping all you Knuckle Draggers had enough of the LIES from Rahm Supported - Section 8'Arena and get behind the next Candidate that will challenge this Idiot.

I live in the 45th ward. A chicago PD Lt has run the last two elections and narrowly lost. Arena's strong hold is libs in portage park and the Lts strong hold is Gladstone park (basically the north end of the ward north of the Kennedy expressway.) Arena is just following the Leftist book of politics, insult the conservatives because they won't vote for him and doing this endears himself to the liberal left. By building the project buildings (3) he will import future Democrats and ensure his victory. Unless we all wake the fuck up.

There needs to be a bill passed in Illinois to recall an Alderman who does not represent their constituents. His actions are not what the voters want and with enough signatures he should be ousted. He's on his own agenda, and with some investigative reporting I would like to know what's in it for him!!

That is why he can say anything he wants, such as knuckle draggers, sub-human DNA. Arena already that this development approved and went through the motions to give the appearance he is listening to people. You could see the hatred and vile coming from his lovely wife in the video. Just for once, it would be nice if coppers stuck together and voted Arena out and Garrido in the office.

The bottom line is way too many aldermen and they have way too much power. What goes on in Chicago is unlike any other major city. If you want a permit you have to go see the alderman. That sets you up for the usual shakedown ( contributions, purchasing fund raising tickets, etc). And, lets not forget the under the table real shakedown such as an envelope of cash or buying your insurance through them. It just goes on and on. I moved out of the city when I retired and I could not be happier with my decision. At first I was coming into the city weekly for restaurants and theater and other things. Now, maybe once a month. I don't miss it a bit. People out here in the burbs are pretty naive and stupid and if they were in the city they would be walking crime victim targets. The thugs would have a field day out here.

John Garrido was not the strongest candidate. Even if he had all the police votes (doesn't matter that he lost by 30), he still would have lost. You got to remember, Cook County doesn't necessarily have the brightest people living here. Look no further then our current politicians both past and present.

The fact of the matter is Garrido wasn't good enough in the debates and his charisma was lacking. The commercials he starred in for his campaign were terrible. Now, we are stuck with this current snake oil salesman whom is fucking his ward with no lube.

What Garrido did do right, and should be used as a blue print for future CPD hopeful politicians, is how he got his name out there. He had no chance in hell of winning that first election he ran in, but it did get his name out there and helped him almost win the first Alderman election he ran in. Not sure why the ward morons were so bamboozled into voting for Arena the second time.

FOP should groom a candidate using Garrido's strategy (just less focus on Facebook), and try for a future alderman election.

I'm surprised Dean Angelo, whom is a friend of Garrido's, hasn't tried doing this already with a PO. He has connections with the Eye-Talian politicos in Elmwood Park and probably a lot more elsewhere.

As if the above weren't enough, the developer full circle, has a bunch of connected Democrats/ social justice Warriors on their board; all experts in Section 8 housing or have links to section 8 housing or at least to companies who service mixed-income developments/subsidized housing. Not one of them tout being veteran experts or senior experts and they keep selling this project as a veteran and senior home. Several members of the board, even in their bios at Full Circle communities.Org announce that they have expertise in Section 8 housing, past ties to IL HUD, Chicago HUD and bickerdike developments... if everybody remembers or knows about the Bickerdikes then you will understand what they intend to do to Jefferson Park. These are all people who are going to profit from this project, paid for and maintained by American tax dollars...our money. On top of that full circle receives almost all of their income from government funding as reported on their 990 charitable filings.
