(TheAntiMedia) On December 12th 2013, an officer named David Barrett walked into a shell station at 10601 S. Cicero Avenue on the Southwest Side of Chicago (Oak Lawn) and began yelling at the cashier because of some kind of problem with the gas pump.
Then, an 89 year-old man named Vincent Detolve asked him to stop cursing obscenities, and the officer pushed him to the ground in response, breaking his hip and tearing his right rotator cuff.
He proceeded to cuss other people in the vicinity out some more, and then the cop left.
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead.
A fire at O'hare International Airport in Chicago has been determined to be the action of a lone citizen contractor and not an act of terrorism.
The man apparently acted alone, and had received no covert funding or training from any known or unknown U.S. or Israeli intelligence agency. In addition the suspect is believed to have white skin whereas all terrorists have skin that is brown in color.
This is insane and frightening....Dinesh D'Souza has been sentenced to 8 months in a community confinement center becauae he was involved with/funded a straw donor. This penalty is way over the top especially considering the small amount of money involved. He has also been ordered to attened "theraputic counseling." Scary to see what happens when you open your mouth and criticize the wrong people. So much for the first ammendment. :(
Scott Davis was absolutely essential in 2012 for Ron Paul at the Illinois Republican State Convention. Now, he's running for Chicago Alderman (44th District) in Obama country.

Hello Liberty Loving Friends !
I'd love to hear opinions about this:
I received an email from the Philosophy department at the University of Chicago urging people to come out for a "Community Video" to protest police brutality against "black men". If you can't go, they want you to tell your friends to go without you & even beg strangers on the street.
Police abuse against black men ?
August 22, 2014. Oak Park, IL. (ONN) Illinois Republicans went way too far in their desperate attempt to keep the Illinois Libertarian Party off the November ballot. Imagine your doorbell rings and two giant, threatening thugs with guns tell you you’ve committed a crime by signing the Libertarian Party’s ballot access petition. They then force you against your will to sign a document recanting your original petition signature. It happened across Illinois and it’s a Class 4 felony. Illinois Republicans may go to prison.
Libertarian Party remains on Illinois ballot this fall
'The Illinois State Board of Elections on Friday voted to knock off the statewide slates of the Green Party and the Constitution Party for insufficient candidacy nominating signatures.
But the board allowed the Libertarian Party slate to remain on the Nov. 4 ballot, including governor candidate Chad Grimm of Peoria and U.S. Senate candidate Sharon Hansen of Pontiac.'
I was just listening about the profit losses of Macy's.
I haven't been to a mall in years. I may go to one store if I NEED
something, but I can't tell you the last time I went to a mall to window
shop for things I didn't need.
These stores are filled with SO MUCH crap (most from China)! I often wonder who is buying it. So I ask this question...
When is that last time you went to a mall and shopped 'til you dropped?
How do these places survive?

STATEWIDE ADVISORY QUESTION
“Shall the minimum wage in Illinois for adults over the age of 18 be raised to $10 per hour by January 1, 2015?”
My brother is having some financial / employment issues, so I thought I would connect with any DPer's in the area that might have ideas or contacts that could help.
I got the following e-mail from the Libertarian National Campaign Committee describing how the GOP of Illinois is trying to stop voters from having the option to vote for Libertarian candidates.
What kind of campaign strategy relies on cheating the voters? Anybody familiar with this tactic?
Either they despise the voters, or their gubernatorial candidate doesn't care about anything beyond his own campaign, because I would imagine Libertarians in Illinois will remember this and never vote for a Republican, again, even in those races where no Libertarian is running. How is that a good idea?
Here's the letter:
The Illinois Republican party, and their billionaire gubernatorial candidate, have declared war on Libertarian candidates.
Two animal rights activists who allegedly released thousands of animals from a mink farm about sixty-five miles southwest of Chicago have been indicted on federal terrorism charges.
Both Tyler Lang and Kevin Johnson were indicted by a grand jury in the Northern District of Illinois for allegedly releasing 2,000 minks from captivity on August 14, 2013, and for conspiring to “damage and interfere with the operations of a fox farm in Roanoke, Illinois,” according to the Justice Department.
