The people of Chicago despises Mayor Rahm Emmanuel who is up for re-election. The problem facing Emmanuel along with his fellow Progressives is that they do nothing for their constituents. Their policies are detrimental to those they were elected to serve.
As not reported by the Communist media complex are complaints from Black Americans that Emmanuel and fellow Progressives are putting the interests of illegal aliens over that of the Black community.
Of course, the media complex stomping for Progressives would have the nation believe otherwise.
Another day, another call for the resignation of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Over Christmas weekends two Chicagoans were shot and killed by Chicago police officers, one a young man reportedly brandishing a baseball bat, the other a woman who is said to have been shot by accident. USA Today reports:
‘Embattled Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will cut short his family vacation in Cuba and head home Tuesday after a police shooting Saturday that claimed two lives, one of them a woman who law enforcement admits was killed accidentally by an officer[…]
If you have been watching the news, you’ve seen hundreds of protesters pour into the streets to demand the resignation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel for covering up the killing of Laquan McDonald by a police officer. Apparently, they are not that concerned about Emanuel, they want all the police fired with the money to go to ‘fund black futures’. They’re already suffering through untold violence in certain precincts in Chicago and it’s […]
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, McCarthy met with Emanuel last evening. The meeting ended with the police chief still having a job but some time during the night Emanuel contacted McCarthy to inform him that he was officially terminated [my emphasis].
This morning at a news conference with the “shell-shocked” former police chief, at his side, Emanuel announced a new five member task force on police accountability and the termination of McCarthy of which came after calls by Black leaders demanding that heads to roll, i.e., that of the former police chief.
… Saying “now is a time for fresh eyes and new leadership,” Mayor Emanuel told the city at a press conference that he is setting up a commission consisting of community leaders and experts to address the problems in the police department and to help him choose a new superintendent….
Emanuel noted that McCaarthy has a strong record that he should “be proud of,” and that he helped modernize the Chicago Police Department (CPD). But Emanuel went on to say that the escalating unrest in the community over the shooting of the teen has showed him that changes have to be made….
Former Massachusetts governor, Deval Patrick was appointed senior advisor of the task force.
Patrick will be “charged with recommending reforms aimed at improving ‘independent oversight of police misconduct.’” (Take the white guy out, put a black guy into play and everybody’s happy. Lipstick on a pig.)
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is set to call for the largest property tax increase in modern Chicago history to raise enough money to make a major pension payment for police and firefighters next year, the mayor’s City Council floor leader and a City Hall source told the Chicago Tribune late Wednesday.
The mayor also plans to push a new garbage collection tax, a new per-ride fee on taxis and ride-hailing services such as Uber and a new tax on electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products….
“…We don’t have a gangs, guns (and) drugs problem. We have a nepotism, cronyism and patronage problem….”
That was just one of the many shouts that were to be heard at last Thursday’s meeting in Chicago, excerpts of which have been selectively omitted by the mainstream media.
Al Sharpton, pit bull and race baiter to the chief converged upon Chicago, Illinois not to discuss that pains and suffering of Chicagoans but to push for gun confiscation, correction control.
To Sharpton’s surprise, the crowd had no intention of engaging Sharpton and Chicago’s Progressive regime on the subject of gun confiscation. Instead fed up Chicagoans assailed Progressive elites from Rahm Emanuel to Sharpton to Barack Obama….
