Re: “Trump ushers in a new age of deceit

Bennie! WTF. When Prez Obama had the Political Mobsters on his staff(Billy Daley-Rahm Emanuel-Arnie Duncan-Ray LaHood-Valarie Jarrett) you don't say a word. When Prez Obama, who never came in unless it was fundraiser, supported Emanuel for Mayor..not a peep. When Prez Obama , came out , per Mike Madigan in a State rep race....BUBKUS!
President Trump has not even taken office and an Congressman, who happens to be of color, attacks the President ELECT. and won't attend inauguration . Talk about acts of treason. Cant you just admit , the people of the United States are tired of playing by other peoples rules. Rules that benefit everyone but them. You can attack President Elect Don Trump for 4 years, but I'll bet he investigates the TIF program in Chicago.

Re: “Did the NBA blacklist former Chicago Bulls player Craig Hodges because of his political beliefs?

If I had the money and the backing, this would be a academy award winning movie staring Will Smith as Hodges.
The NBA is due to air the dirty laundry, especially after owner Donald Sterlings comments that were recorded by his girlfriend.

Re: “Rahm plants seeds for Red Line TIF while Chicago panics over Trump

Ben, "TRUMP CRISIS?" Chicago and Illinois have been getting there pockets picked for 23 years from so called Democrats. Meter Deal-Garage deal-Millennium Park-Park Grill- The great Pension money Heist-O'Hare Expansion-DePaul Prayer for Basketball Court-Housing Crisis....and you want to believe TRUMP is the crisis?
Come on Ben...just because it has a D in front of it, doesn't mean they are Democrats in Chicago!

Re: “Progressives join forces with the Machine to realign Chicago's Democratic Party

Ben Jay,you know your my guy, but you make it sound like the Cook County Democratic Party is an honorable organization.
TODAYS Cook County Democrats are run by two faced, selfish,unethical,lying, whores!

THE pimps are Mike Madigan-Rahm Emanuel-John Daley-Eddie Burke-Toni Preckwinkle.

Cook County Democratic Organization is just a front for a scum ball,evil,organized crime crew!

We should teach these same students how to look up donations on the state board of elections website. That will explain how everything is run in Chicago and Illinois.....he or she who donates, gets rich !
