Memorial Day weekend begins with at least 18 shot across city in 12-hour span
Gunfire echoed through a complex of two-story brown brick apartment buildings on 14th Street on the Near Southwest Side early Saturday morning.

A woman lay in bed, startled awake but unable to move. Muzzle flash illuminated her bedroom walls.

“Hit the floor, hit the floor,” her husband said as he pushed her onto the ground. She reached up and dragged her four-year-old son, who was asleep in a nearby bed, onto the floor.

“I thought it was a dream,” said the woman, who asked not to be identified because she fears retribution. “I laid there in bed for a minute.”

No one inside the woman’s apartment was hurt but outside, a 20-year-old man lay dead. He was one of 18 people shot across Chicago between 2:45 p.m. Friday and 3 a.m. Saturday. Other victims included a 4-year-old girl who was shot about 8 p.m. while sitting in a car outside a South Side prom party and a 34-year-old man shot to death about 1:45 a.m. Saturday in the Wicker Park neighborhood.

The sound of gunfire about 2:10 a.m. on the 1000 block of 14th Street in the University Village / Little Italy neighborhood drew a dozen or so residents from their apartments as Chicago police and University of Illinois police swarmed the apartment complex.

Police arrived to find the 20-year-old man, who hasn’t been identified, on the grass and unresponsive. He was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where he died from his wounds, police said.

The TRUTH About Violence in the USA That Al Sharpton and Barack Obama DO NOT Want You To Know

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 6.21.47 PM


The media and liberal activists (I know, one and the same, right?) are pushing the claim that blacks are the victims in America today, but the truth is that blacks commit 25 times more violent assaults than whites do. The real criminal statistics is something that Al Sharpton and Barack Obama really don’t want America to know.

Here are the facts that race pimps like Obama, Sharpton and Jesse Jackson don’t want you to know…

Obama Just Gave Race Rioters Across America This $163 Million Reward

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 5.42.19 PM

The two things that Obama loves most about being president is power and spending as much of our hard-earned tax dollars however he pleases. Now, he is using the violent Baltimore and Ferguson riots for even more spending, and to spread his control across the country even further.

Instead of blaming the looters in Ferguson and Baltimore for their own despicable actions, Obama has blamed the U.S. police themselves. A few weeks ago, he slammed American cops on national television when he said they “target poor, African Americans.” Now, Obama has announced that he will basically offer the rioters a reward for all the chaos they have caused.

While speaking in Camden, New Jersey, Obama announced that he will be spending a whopping $163 million on hiring people to organize communities and build trust between individuals and police. This is part of his six-part plan to build trust between “communities of color” and police.

While this may sound nice, the people he will hire to “organize communities” will likely be the very same looters who have organized rebellions and destroyed their communities. This is no different then Rev. Al Sharpton and billionaire George Soros donating millions to community organizers who then use this money to create violent protests and riots.

This matters little to Obama, however, who will take any excuse he can to spend the tax dollars of hard working Americans.

While speaking to the press, White House senior aide Valerie Jarrett commented, “for too long, both jobs and hope have been hard to find. That sense of unfairness and powerlessness has helped to fuel the kind of unrest we’ve seen in Ferguson and Baltimore and New York and other cities across our country.”

“It has many causes, from a basic lack of opportunity to folks feeling unfairly targeted by the police,” she added.

Obama has officially made it so that taxpayers will now be funding community protests and riots against the police. No wonder morale among American police officers is at an all-time low: even their own president is against them.

A shocking confrontation filmed on the streets of New York highlights the racial animosity that continues to plague America in the aftermath of last year’s Ferguson riots and the rise of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

The footage was filmed by US Army veteran Joey Boots, a frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show.

The incident began when a member of the Five-Percent Nation, a militant offshoot of the Nation of Islam, began harassing a group of white hipsters in Union Square.
An older black man begins an argument with the group before threatening to “turn this motherfucker upside (down).”

“Where’s your man at? I’ll get him first. Straight up, I don’t give a fuck,” yells the man, adding, “I’m a thug, I’m from Brooklyn,” before referring to himself as the “King.”

One of the hipsters then jumps towards “King” and other members of the Five-Percent Nation, one of whom is wearing a “fuck the police” sweater, quickly move in to disperse the confrontation.

“You’re a dead man – I promise you,” yells “King” towards the man who confronted him.

However, the tone of the confrontation then begins to turn even more sinister as another member of the Five-Percent Nation states, “That’s why I stopped him, because this motherfucker should be bowing to him.”

“Bowing?….Did this guy just say racist shit here….he should be bowing to him because he’s black?” asks the man filming the incident.

“And just so ya’ll know, all of ya’ll time is coming, you’re all gonna die,” says the Five-Percent Nation thug.

“What do you mean ya’ll,” asks the cameraman.

“All of you people, and all of your derivatives, all of the people who love you,” responds the thug.

“You talking about white people?,” asks the cameraman.

“Yeah,” responds the thug.

The argument continues before the thug asserts, “by the end of this year you’ll be dead.”

“Is that a death threat, black man?” asks the cameraman.

“It’s already happening,” responds the thug.

One of the group that was threatened, himself black, then points out the threat also applied to him because his mother is white.

The cameraman’s charge that the thug is a “racist piece of shit” for calling for the mass genocide of white people would be disputed by social justice warriors and prominent black figures, who argue that it is impossible for black people or ethnic minorities to be racist.

Violent and racist rhetoric from elements of the #BlackLivesMatter movement in the aftermath of Ferguson, Missouri has become a common theme, but it is routinely downplayed or ignored by the mass media.

Instead on focusing on police brutality, the movement has been steered to obsess on white guilt, a form of cultural marxism that absolves the state of blame and merely serves to create polarization and division between the people.

‘Slavery is over': Hired Ferguson protesters demand pay


// ‘Slavery is over’: Hired Ferguson protesters demand pay// //  // // //

“Black Lives Matter” protesters who were apparently hired to cause a ruckus in Ferguson, Missouri, are angry because, they say, they haven’t been paid for their hard work.

So they’ve launched a #CutTheCheck hashtag on Twitter and held a sit-in at the offices of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, or MORE – the successor group to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, in Missouri.

The protesters have received as much as $5,000 a month to generate civil unrest in the troubled suburb of St. Louis, according to FrontPage Mag’s Matthew Vadum.

“MORE is the re-branded Missouri branch of ACORN, which filed for bankruptcy in late 2010,” Vadum reported. “MORE and other groups supporting the Black Lives Matter movement have received millions of dollars from billionaire financier George Soros.”

The angry agitators held a sit-in outside MORE’s offices on May 14 to demand their money, Weasel Zippers reported. The site posted a video of several black individuals shouting at a white man, who Weasel Zippers identifies as Jeff Ordower, founder of MORE and a longtime leftist activist who previously worked as a union organizer for SEIU in Texas and former Midwest director of ACORN.

Ordower had not responded to a WND request for comment at the time of this report.

A group called Millennial Activists United posted a letter insisting MORE should “cut the checks” to the protesters.

“Early in the movement, non-profit organization MORE, formerly known as the St. Louis chapter of ACORN, and local St. Louis organization Organization for Black Struggle created a joint account in which national donors from all over the world have donated over $150,000 to sustain the movement,” the letter states. “Since then, the poor black [sic] of this movement who served as cash generators to bring money into St. Louis have seen little to none of that money.

“Questions have been raised as to how the movement is to sustain when white non-profits are hoarding monies collected of off [sic] black bodies? When we will [sic] hold the industry of black suffering accountable? The people of the community are fed up and the accountability begins here and now.

The statement continued, “We NEED to be thinking about justice for black people. This means white people must renounce their loyalty to the social normalcy that maintains white power and control. If black lives really matter, justice and self-determination for black people would mean the black community would control [its] own political and economic resources. Moving forward, we are building a board of accountability within this movement. We must funnel economic [sic] into this movement through the hands of black people who are fighting with and for black life. More on this board will be discussed as we develop.”

Other online reactions to the protesters’ demands for payment include:

  • “So these really were pro agitators. Some movement. “We shall overcome. After we get paid.”
  • “I’d rather see [people] protesting something they are passionate about (even if their behavior is way off base) than #CutTheCheck=Disgusting.”
  • “Lots of folks doing work & acting on conscience. It’s not fair that a group of 20 get [sic] $50,000 for throwing a tantrum.”

MORE reportedly released the following list of who had been paid from September 2014 through April 22, 2015, amounts and purpose of the payments.

Some payments were listed for the following purposes:

  • Gas
  • Video services for Ferguson
  • Debt repayment for Ferguson
  • Red light camera charges
  • “Supplies for non-indictment”
  • Training supplies
  • Food
  • Bullhorns
  • Catering
  • Art supplies
  • Permits
  • Walkie-talkies
  • T-shirts
  • Van rentals
  • Youth stipends
  • Cell phones for Ferguson
  • Emergency support, and others.
