Obama Weekend Count: 10 killed, 53 wounded in Chicago weekend shootings

We talked about blacks needing their own Donald Trump. Instead, they have Barack Obama.

While Barack Obama’s presidency could have done so much to help US blacks, it never did. Black unemployment hit record levels during much of the Obama presidency.

Because of his race, Barack Obama was in a unique position to communicate with black Americans and talk about improving their lives. Obama not only squandered his opportunity to help black Americans, but he did just the opposite. Instead of preaching responsibility (stay in school, study hard, don’t join gangs, avoid violence and crime), Obama did just the opposite. He constantly played the race card, trying to gain political advantage.

In retrospect, the only blacks the Obamas truly associated with were famous celebrities and professional athletes. They cared little about the hard-working black man or woman struggling to feed a family and concerned about gang violence.

Obama gave blacks food stamps and Obama phones. The Trump Administration is working to give blacks jobs.

But, people in Chicago were celebrating like it’s 2008.

Perhaps it’s poetic justice that Illinois first holiday to honor Chicago’s favorite son by celebrating with a high level of violence. Maybe Chicago should have kept Ernie Banks as its favorite son.

A violent weekend in Chicago left 10 people dead and dozens more wounded, police said.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson plans to hold a news conference at 11 a.m. Monday.

However, CPD says it has seen a citywide reduction in shootings by 30 percent this year.

Police said they’ve been working around the clock this weekend.

The violence has spilled over into Monday morning, including a murder that happened just after midnight in the Roseland neighborhood not far from Chicago State University.

A person in a ski-mask fired shots at two people standing in front of a home. A 50-year-old man died a 55-year-old woman was hurt.

In the Fuller Park neighborhood, three people were shot by someone in a ski mask and a black hoodie.

The ooting occurred in the 4300-block of South Wentworth Avenue at about 2:26 a.m. Two men were in a parked vehicle and a third man was standing near it when the shots were fired.

A 32-year-old man was shot twice in the arm and a 33-year-old man was shot in the hip. Both men were transported to University of Chicago Hospital in stable condition. A 26-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the hand and thigh and is hospitalized at Stroger Hospital in stable condition.

Police say they know some of the shootings have been random and some targeted and related to gang conflicts.

“Detectives are working around the clock to investigate the incidents, build a timeline of events and identify any shooter,” said Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Fred Waller. “We’ll also be conducting coordinated enforcement missions to target individuals that are driving the violence in these areas and focus on where we believe retaliatory violence may occur.”

CPD also says it has implemented a data-driven policing strategy that helps police predict crime before it happens so they can put officers in the right places at the right time.

Meanwhile, over the weekend, crowds of different grieving families gathered in the parking lots of emergency rooms across the city as hospitals were inundated with patients wounded by bullets.

Police say the violence is unacceptable and they say they continue to take illegal guns off the streets.

Chicago may be running behind last year in murders, but like Mike Ditka’s Bears, expect a big comeback in the second half.

Perhaps Chicago should have kept Mr. Cub as its favorite son.

    Almost as bad as baghdad — “At least 175 people were killed and nearly 200 wounded, while a dozen people remain unaccounted for.” — according to AP.

    Looks like Trump has had enough of this shite —

    “After months of dribbling out incomplete document requests made by frustrated GOP lawmakers, President Trump may be about to override Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and use his presidential authority to declassify several caches of information related to the DOJ/FBI’s ongoing Trump-Russia counterintelligence operation, according to former IBD Bureau Chief Paul Sperry.

    Sperry tweeted on Sunday that President Trump may declassify: 20 redacted pages of a June, 2017 FISA renewal, “and possibly” 63 pages of emails and notes between “Ohr & Steele,” and FD-302 summaries of 12 interviews – In reference to twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr and/or his wife Nellie, both of whom were working with opposition research firm Fusion GPS to investigate Trump. ” — ZH

    If what is in the redacted text is contradictory to Rosenstein’s testimony the man better have a good lawyer.

    NFL’s first male dancers hit the sidelines:


    Colleges, the Indianapolis Colts and several Western Division CFL teams have males on their cheer teams. But these are hulks who serve as the base of pyramids and catch 95 pound women when they drop 20 feet, not girly men.

    You can bet television coverage will be focusing on them and Bob Costas will be asking why all the teams don’t have male dancers.

    The NFL couldn’t do more to p!ss off its fan base if it tried. In fact, maybe it is trying. You have to wonder.

    From InstaPundit.com:
    Left-wing mob interrupts Candace Owens’ breakfast with primal screams. “As you can see in this clip, Kirk and Owens are inside the restaurant and some of the protesters are inside screaming at them. When they head outside a small mob is chanting and giving them the finger. The protesters, who appear to be mostly young, white women, chant ‘F**k white supremacy.’ Someone with a bullhorn is yelling in Candace Owens ear and she tells that person to back off. And then the protesters begin primal screaming as loud as they can. The look on Owens’ face is priceless.”

    Jack Posobiec: I haven’t seen this many white Democrats kick a black woman out of a restaurant since the 1950s.
