Remembering my friend Chip Gerdes #RTR

you know ja Chip

Today I learned that Chip Gerdes, my friend and friend of this blog, passed away. There are many characters fighting this war to restore freedom and an appreciation for American exceptionalism to our country; but there is no one like Chip.

Two actions to take in the wake of #Boston

I understand but don’t share the exuberance some residents of Boston and the country felt celebrating the capture of the second terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev last night.

Jackson Jr resigns on Thanksgiving Eve

!!5046892jj

The astoundingly unsurprising news that Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned today reveals far more about the sorry state of our local Chicago democratic leadership than the trite and pathetic story of Jackson Jr.’s downfall. Jackson Jr., son of the Reverend Jesse Jackson, who has been AWOL from Congress since June 10, has been the subject of congressional…

first-protest

NBC Chicago’s Charlie Wojciechowski ignored and lashed out a reporter who covered the Northwestern University Midwest Marxism conference over the weekend, in particular referring to reporting of Teachers Union VP Jesse Sharkey’s presence there as “full of sh*t.” The conference was notable not only for its radical content and secretive nature (I was booted after…
