Chicago Tries to Take Down Turning Point USA

"Right wing groups attempt to open at Chicago high school, rejected. After talk of starting a turning point USA chapter at taft high school, the school's principle said that they will never tolerate student groups that go against the school's values. Chicago sometimes writes that administrators at Chicago public schools high school have shot down an attempt by a right wing group to form a chapter on the northwest campus of quote an organization promoting racial and tolerance. Wonder who he's talking about. Meanwhile, Chicago police said their investigating, a social media post by longtime Chicago police department sergeant that praised the efforts for the students trying to start the group turning point USA I'll get to that in a second. Taft high school principal Mark Gresham, or Grisham, said in a letter to the school community earlier, this month that he was disturbed by efforts to launch a turning point chapter at taft high school. The right-wing organization claims to have a presence on thousands of high school. No, we do have the presence on thousands of high school and college campuses, including in the Chicago suburbs. The organization was founded in 2012, but Charlie Kirk Baba am a Trump supporter who considers critical race theory and the concept of white privilege is racist against whites, and it is. The group's key principles he says are rooted in capitals of U.S. Constitution and the U.S. is the greatest country in the world. He grew up in the northwest suburbs and attended wheeling high school. At least they got that part right. Grasshopper said in his note that the group doesn't support diversity and inclusion. You hear that that we don't support diversity inclusion, and they're the ones that block our group from coming. We're the ones that are not inclusive, we're the ones that don't support diversity because we want to have a group of ten people at a left wing high school in downtown Chicago. He says that turning point USA contradicts the school's mission statement to quote educate global citizens to create a better world. Quote, police know that the staff and administration at tap will never tolerate the formation of any group that doesn't support these values. No please mister Gresham, tell me what we've ever said or ever done at turning point USA that is against the values of trying to educate global citizens create a better world. Have you ever gone to a turning point USA event? Can you name one thing that we do at our organization? Promoting racial intolerance. We're the ones that just did an entire campus tour, trying to say that critical race theory is actually incredibly racist and destroying our country from within.

Truth Is Not a Left Wing Value

"Jussie Smollett. It's found guilty. Can you explain to me I read this headline and it was not clear to me Don lemon said he lied on the stand. Are you familiar with that? That Don lemon said that about Jussie Smollett, who has been his friend the entire time. Well no, but if Don lemon abandons you, it's not a good sign. But he has Black Lives Matter because you can not trust anything the Chicago police department says, even if it's true. Black Lives Matter is a perfect example of my longtime explanation of the left truth is not a left wing value. Who says something is the left wing value. Truth is not determined by the truth of what happened. But by who said it, just like the prime minister of New Zealand, there is no other truth other than what you hear from the government. She actually said that. I've played it for you. At least half a dozen times. Truth is who says it? This is a left wing change of the notion of truth. Truth is not an independent virtue. It is dependent upon the purveyor of the idea of the event of whatever it might be. If a white says it, it's a lie. That's it, that is the Black Lives Matter hate filled. Did I say hate filled? Hate filled. It's a hate organization. Given hundreds of millions of dollars by by companies and by the Rockefeller foundation and the like. They fund hate in this country. One day, the people who did that will have to answer. Either two history or to God and hopefully to both.

Jussie Smollett Found Guilty of Disorderly Conduct

"Revenge against Jesse Smollett. I want him to know that the carnage caused by crime is nothing to fake. It is so devastating on children. I don't think Jesse has children. And I hope he doesn't. Given what's going to what's been going on with him. But what do you want to see done? Let me play you a couple of clips of if you want to contribute to angel train. I would love that, by the way. We have one and a half million children who have a mother or father in jail. And we're doing great guns on this show. You folks are so generous. Thank you. Listen to Christian talk a little bit about this. What it means inside the jail. And just have people believe in them. And for them to be able to be a kid and not suffer for the crime that their parents are in prison for. We actually feel like they're the silent victims of crime because they're labeled through angel treats. That's what we're doing is we're giving them the opportunity to be a kid and to look past their parents label. And that matters so much. But I think maybe just who he's serving angel tree would be fine. Here is the Dan Webb. The prosecutor of Jesse Smollett after the trial a number of different clips smashed together here, cut number 16. What he did to this city and what he did to the Chicago police department never had a chance to put it in front of a jury and let a jury decide. Dan Webb, the former U.S. attorney was assigned as special prosecutor in the case after Cook County prosecutors dropped initial charges against Jussie Smollett. Speaking after the verdict, Webb said Smollett wreaked havoc in the city for weeks on end for no reason whatsoever. 26 Chicago police officers spent 3000 hours of time costing the city well over a $100,000 for a fake crime that never occurred. And by the way, a fake crime that denigrates what a real hate crime is. Webb said his law firm took on the case pro Bono, and that the jury's decision proved that the special prosecutor's office made the right choice. If you're going to do this, then just do it for the public. I was asked for my firm to try to help restore the lack of confidence in the criminal justice system because what happened? Webb is right, and he's done that. Thank you, Dan

George Floyd family reach $27m civil lawsuit settlement

"The Minneapolis City Council approved $27 million civil settlement with the family of George Floyd over the man's death in police custody last year. And with us to discuss the settlement is one of Floyd family attorneys Tony Rooney tree from the Chicago law firm of Roman UCI and Bland and hi, Tony. Thank you for joining us. How are you? Good afternoon, Karen. I'm doing well. Hope you're well, too. Now. What family members do you represent? So first of all, we are. We represent the trustee in the case. The trustee was appointed as as the main plaintiff, somebody who oversees the litigation. And then, of course, we represented all of the next of kin. Except for one family member s o. We represented well over 10 next of kin in this family, okay? And where? How does it How does a settlement like this? Get negotiate? I mean, this was probably a very unusual situation because of the high profile nature of what was going on. But can you just give our listeners just a view from a legal standpoint? From a lawyer's standpoint in a case like this? How do you broach the topic? And who are you speaking with? Well, it's a very high level question, Karen. There's so much that goes into the settlement of the case like this, But I can tell you that it was a very long Protracted negotiation it involved Literally dozens of meetings between the lawyers, the people in Minneapolis Account was letters and emails and phone calls and sit down and and it takes a long time. They were very protracted, long, difficult negotiations. But it is very typical in these sort of negotiations. Once it happens, it happens very quickly. It's like all of a sudden someone just lifts up the door to that dam, and the water comes gushing out and it's over. S o. You know, we knew that we had settled the case with Minneapolis about 10 days ago, but it had to be kept confidential for so many reasons and I have to hand it Not only the legal team but also the Floyd family members for for keeping this very tightly wrapped, keeping the bow on it until it was ready to be released to the public, which was on Friday. So where does the money come from? The $27 Million in settlement is that come from the police department, the city or is their insurance money for this type of thing? It's very typical and municipalities is that municipalities have control over police departments. And when I say that is that they control their budgets. For example, in Chicago. Um you know, the Chicago Police Department budget is close to $2 billion per year that comes out of city of Chicago Department of Finance right to do. And the same thing in Minneapolis, except their budget is under 200 million. It's a much smaller budget. It's 1/10 the size of that of Chicago's And in the Minneapolis City budget is somewhere around a billion dollars. Now Minneapolis is different than Chicago in that they are considered a very, very Good credit risk. They haven't aid on a plus credit rating and they've been very fiscally responsible over the years, so they actually had the money for this. This will all be self insured money. And Minneapolis has assured that taxpayers that not one cent of this will be taxed back to its citizens. Now I'm going to take the devil's advocate here. And there are people when I've heard them. I've heard them on the streets saying, Yeah, the police were wrong. In this case. It was really a horrible thing. No one deserves to die. But what about all this money? Does this family deserve it? And is this the right thing to do? Well, how do you respond to that? There's no question Karen and you know, Look, it's a fair question, because you know, we have to play doubles advocate. We have to hear both sides. Let me say this. And I've said this, You know, I said this yesterday to somebody else, too. You know, we saw that video. Everybody has seen that video. Everybody now knows George Floyd. Was tortured and executed on the Minneapolis City street for close to nine minutes. They saw what he went through, but I will tell you I've been with this family. I can't not even tell you on how many countless occasions And they are they are tortured every day. All of them they all feel their own personal sense of torture, knowing that one of their dear loved ones was brutally slaughtered. Ministry like this. Nobody got the chance to say goodbye to him. Nobody had the chance to comfort him. This man died. His last breathing words were Mama. And it's It's beyond beyond sad that this is really this is what the definition of tragic is. So is $27 million. A lot of money. Yes, it is. It is. However, when you consider first of all the number of family members who are going to be a part of this settlement And the torture that they will undergo and that they have undergone every day. This is this is how our Seventh Amendment works. This is how civil justice works. It works by making people hold and compensating them.

It is hard race that horrifying video of engine at young home and changing so naked. When chicago police burst into her home. An officer did eventually put a blanket over her but for a long stretch shoot was left. Naked wall restrained in handcuffs. When you see body camera video later on in the story you will see a black box that has heard digitally covered up by vesey. Pd when it made the footage public following investigative reporting by wb pm traumatic experience for young especially given police. Were in the wrong home. Mayor lightfoot premised change today. pd makes good on his promise to change. How search warrants are served in chicago. It's always the right time to do the right thing. We should always be volving to improve our policies training and accountability now new standards and procedures announced by cpi de chief david brown and mayor lightfoot required higher ranking command staff to sign off on requests for a warrant before it is brought to a state's turning judge considerations and plans must be made if vulnerable people. Mike children may be present than what a search is actually executed. A female officer must be present. Police must wear in activate body cameras. Lieutenant must also be on site and responsible for officers behavior the plan upfront spells out. What type of behavior is expected. All department members will treat all persons with courtesy and dignity which is inherently do every person and will act speak and conduct themselves in a courteous respectful and professional manner. And then it goes on from there. This is common sense but this is now enshrine in the actual policy. New policy does still allow for so called. No knock warrants but limited circumstances like when he life is in danger a fourth amendment allows for that to happen but only in certain circumstances where there's an establishment that evidence of a crime will be found in a particular location on no matter. How you slice it. It is an intrusion and so making sure that we get the facts details right and that there is ownership at the highest levels of c pd. It's critically important and please do get things wrong if there's bad evidence or something. The situation like what happened to young wrong raid. That has to be investigated. That's another safeguard that i believe. Personally it's critically important that the judge be notified that there was a one raid asked whether he's concerned that a standards click police in peril in potentially dangerous situations. Your brown responded. The real question you're asking is if treating someone with respect gets in the way of doing our job and the answer is no so following these policies and procedures with an emphasis on. Everyone deserves a measure of respect actually enhances our ability to do our job and create an environment of trust in the community. Which again is a force. Multiplier beanie effective at reducing. Cra in an email the president of the chicago fraternal order of police said that you had plenty of reaction to these new standards but he did not immediately. Follow up an email with specifics. The proposal did get the non from alderman. Chris taliaferro is head of the city council's public safety committee and also a former cia so these reforms that the mayor is announcing today will help bring about true accountability true responsibility but in a statement. Young's attorney says the proposal falls woefully short of the types of reforms that the citizens of chicago require to feel secure in their homes from these violent and often wrongful rates if the mayor is truly serious about reform statement says she'll get signed. An ordinance announced last week by a handful of black alderman also has the backing of progressive groups like lack lives matter and united working families and that plan does no knock. Warrants also expressly prohibits officers from pointing guns toward children and there is time for young the coalition of group. She's aligned with and really anybody else who wants to have their opinion made known about us to do social is going to have a fifteen day public comment period before these standards go into effect. It's a short period of time. Fifteen days and so encourage a france. You let's use social media Not just for passing around jokes and having a good time. Let's use this to improve our city.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Provides Update On Chicago's Coronavirus Vaccine Rollout

"Black and Hispanic Americans are about twice as likely to die from covert 19 is white Americans, yet they have been vaccinated. At much lower rates across the country that in Chicago, about half of the city's vaccinations are for people of color. The mayor of Chicago, of course, is Lori Lightfoot, and she joins us now more like for thanks so much for being with us. Good morning, Scott. A pleasure to be with you early in the vaccine roll out less than 20% of vaccine doses went to Chicago. Once of color. Now, that's half. What did Chicago do? That can make a difference. Can it be done in other places? Well, we work extremely hard to overcome. Vaccine hasn't see in communities of color protect particularly black and like flat necks, and really that hard work began at the very beginning of the pandemic. We were seeing the disproportion impact on communities of color, this horrible virus. We went to work in those communities, which trusted partners. And I think those that hard work over time is starting to bear fruit in the significant off take to go from, you know the low teens. Of uptake in the early days of the vaccine program to now over 50% is remarkable turnaround, and it's really do that the hard work of so many people across our city certainly led by city government, But really, our partners in the neighborhoods deserve the credit because they recognize this life saving Vaccine has to go to those people that are most in need. And in our city That means communities of color. But what's the messaging in this Because, of course, you know, a lot of the hesitancy is historic, based on things that, obviously well, what's the message Inky were able to convince you there's there's no secret sauce, and it's really ah lot of diligence, one on one conversation and getting people who are trusted. Community partners in those neighborhoods who recognizable literally. We've gone door to door for months now to get people educated. Provide them with information really do a lot of myth busting and you've just got a Put in the hard work to overcome their fears. And I think as people have seen people that they recognize whether it's a mayor of color as I am or their neighbors who are getting the vaccine without adverse consequences. It's bringing people who are really standing on the sidelines into the field of play and saying, all right I'll do this. I think it's safe. Have to ask you Mayor Lightfoot, a zoo, you know. Chicago Tribune reported this week that the city spent more than $280 million nearly 60% of the discretionary spending money it got under the Caress Coronavirus relief package. On CPD, the Chicago police Department. Is that true? And what do you say? OK, I'm going to quote Alderman less Fatah. The first ward, who says that money should have been sent on spent on housing assistance in small businesses, not the police. Well, we spent Tens of millions of dollars on a significant number of community service and social service programs. As you know, Scott when the tears package Came from Congress. It came through specific line items and grants for programs like homelessness, community health, um, violence prevention and other things. Those were designated dollars where there was really no flexibility whatsoever and how that money was spent, and we spent it accordingly. There were some money, however, that the federal government gave to cities like Chicago to address the unprecedented need to respond to covert 19. And yes, we spent money on a range of first responder activities because they were at the front lines in many instances, particularly in the early days of our covert 19 response. So the criticism that somehow we should have taken a pass on free money from the federal government that came to address unprecedented and unbudgeted needs that were in our city just doesn't make any sense. I make no apologies for the fact that we took advantage of the opportunities that the federal gave government gave us rather than passing on. Was expensive to our taxpayers, so that the the choices do we actually take advantage of the re rope the money that has given us two by the federal government and save Burden on our taxpayers, or do we just pass along the cost to the taxpayers? I understand with our taxpayers every single day and do everything that I can to save them from any further burden, And that's exactly what we did in Chicago. Thanks so much my pleasure.

Why the abrupt about-face on Jesse let the prosecutor's reasoning was that dropping the case and having small at. Essentially, forfeit ten thousand dollars. He put up in bond to the city was it shots appropriate way to deal with this case, and the charges are relatively small. They're saying they're not exonerating him. But he's maintaining his innocence. What was weird unusual about? This case is just how quickly this happened. How sudden happened? They went from indicting this guy in sixteen less than three weeks ago dropping charges against him. They did. There was no forewarning to the Chicago police department or witnesses in the case, which are typical courtesies. And this how how the case went down at the more than even the substance of what deal they brokered is what's shining legal experts in the police community. And what about the Cook County state's attorney Kim? Fox's what's the intrigue surrounding her right now? Kim FOX weeks ago, even before small was charged had recused herself. From this case, what we later learned was that she had some pretty interesting interactions with a family member of small as well as Tina Chen, who's a high profile Chicago attorney, but it's probably better known as being Telo bama's White House cheaper staff when Michelle Obama was the first lady between two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen FOX did recuse herself, but emails and tax that she released showed that after Chen and smaller families urging as the investigation was going on. She had pressed Chicago police superintendent, Eddie Johnson. To pass on the investigation to the. And this bizarre case one of the most bizarre ones, we've we've all kind of heard in the long time doesn't exactly help Chicago's reputation right now when it comes to law and order, which has taken a beating in recent years, what are some of those lingering issues, and I think that's that's right. There's there's obviously the issues that we've talked about before of violence rate city has one of the highest per capita homicide rates and the country. Police brutality has been an issue. The city is paid out more than seven hundred million dollars in settlements and legal fees since two thousand ten and there's just a general distrust of police what questions though that this raises.

But man, you can read it to and we won't even won't even infringe upon your masculinity. If you do. I'm a proud bright Email reader and today, it's it's basically a distillation of the day's news in a compact format. So that you can kind of digest it and understand what is making news and Kelsey so much. I mean think about how far this Newsweek has gone we started with Trump Russia. The biggest story on two major news networks for the last two and a half years being dispensed with on Monday. And now we have three other things that are occupying the top page of of all the headlines now, how fast is this Newsweek going? Right. I used to say there was no such thing as a slow news day under President Trump said it's now changing by the hour. That's true. That's true. Well, the Jesse small at story you wrote about that today. And I just get your reaction to that this guy in there. There's speculation now that it may have been Michelle Obama chief of staff that that actually got the ball rolling. But you know, we had Andy McCarthy on yesterday. And there's no there's there's literally no logical explanation. Byron York road in the Washington Examiner this morning that doesn't make any sense. They didn't they didn't confess to having new information that seemed to vindicate. They just took everything that they had done put it in a big box said non-disclosed, and you're free to go. And then kept his money. What what's your reaction to it? Right. In fact, when when clearing his name, they also said very clearly this was not an exoneration. So now, we across accusers releasing all charges, but say, no, no, he's still doesn't change. The grand jury decision. That's doesn't undermine all the bounty of evidence that the Chicago police department spent spent, you know, days in months accumulating all their hard work, my heart really out for all the police officers who are feeling very frustrated and undermined by this decision. And I would say the worst part about it is, you know, it's one thing for a prosecutor maybe a deal with someone who was a non violent offender who who is repetitive. Sorry, even slightly remorseful. Great great. He is not expressing an ounce of remorse. He is not sorry. Not only do not sorry. He's still denying that. This was a fake hate crime hoax to begin with. He's still proclaiming his innocence. And to cut a deal with a man who is still proclaiming his innocence in light of all the evidence against them. And the grand jury indictment. I think is really shameful upon whoever made this decision. Yeah. But you know, there's just one word that explains all of it and that Chicago, so. Privilege. And I'm being tongue in cheek you're being serious because if it was if it was Obama's former chief of staff that made the phone call who else has the access to the DA on that level. Why is there special treatment for those at the very top of the food chain but every day slobs? Like you and me we do the same exact thing we're going up the river. Right. And you know, this takes away from real hate crimes. You know, people report. Now, you know, others might be less inclined to believe them. And it's very rare that you'll ever find me agreeing with David Axelrod. But I I am a manual. And bright this morning. He said and left the better explanation. There's here's the lesson for this weird turn into the smaller case, you can contrive a hate crime. They get national news get caught. But if you are a well-connected celebrity, you can get off for ten thousand dollars in your record, expunged and file steel. It's insane. It's absolutely insane. Well, that's just one of the big stories Kelsey, you also made mention of the vote in the house yesterday, which I said on air was maybe the starting to make this maybe the best job week for Trump and his presidency because they're now there's no there's no barrier between he and getting to extend the wall as he is planned and desired and asked and wanted to do begged congress to help him get it done, etc. Etc. Now, there's no barrier. He can go ahead and do that because they're the house failed to overturn his veto yesterday. But nevertheless after that after Muller after all this stuff Rashida to leave is still gonna pray. Ford with impeachment charges. Yes. That's the only rational way Democrats can find to respond to President Trump's, you know, name being cleared after a two year investigation that cost taxpayers twenty five million dollars might be twenty five million dollars. And that's not even to mention the investigation that looked into the same exact charges in the house and the Senate. So democrat congresswoman where she is now asking her colleagues defined on onto the resolution that would direct the House Judiciary committee to watch yet another investigation into impeachable offenses. She thinks we're committed by the president. You know, I think it's clearly all a distraction, and I think that goes to show that Democrats don't want to talk about actual policies that can make people's lives better. They just want to spend the last two years, you know, talking about this conspiracy. Theory. And they're not ready to let it go with anything. They're ready to double down. And I'll be interested to see how this plays with with the Democrats taste because I would think you know, calling to impeach the president the same week after the bowler report comes out only plays to the most extreme and up there. But that's who they're trying to capture the vote for in the early stages of their primary, thanks to California. And I think that it hurts them. And we'll see I just it's going to be the nation has gone through something significant this week. And we haven't really seen the evidence of it yet. But I think we're going to in the days to come reader at the daily signal Kelsey bowler. Thanks so much. This is Kevin McCullough by Kevin McCullough..

"chicago police department" Discussed on KSFO-AM

"The most listened to radio talk show in America hosted by me. Rush Limbaugh doing what I was born to do. While meeting and surpassing all audience expectations everyday. The patients of those of you on hold on the phones are going to get to you L quicko here little Spanish lingo. The Chicago police are livid. Chicago police. Boston Chicago police release files in the Justice smollet case one day after charges were dramatically dropped. Chicago police department released pages of redacted investigative reports in the jussie smollet case one day after charges were dropped. But the move may have prompted a moot. Court order about an hour after the Chicago police department released the files Chicago police reportedly became subject of a court order that barred them from releasing further files, even though they were widely available online. I think the Chicago police had the goods on the guy. I think they have even more that they're saying they had more than what they had revealed today, and they were going to use that at trial. And now they have just had the rug pulled out from under them. And they don't know why. And by whom the mayor can't even figure it out and everybody in Chicago is livid outraged at the two tiered Justice system that is obviously under split here. And it's I you know, what I nobody knows. I mean, everybody has their wild guesses, but I drew an analogy earlier to Kim FOX the Cook County state's attorney and Maryland Moesby who is her counterpart in Baltimore. That woman still has a job Maryland Moesby has been sued. Her department has been sued by five or six Baltimore police officers for defamation. I think we clearly. Have al-bahm type or Alinsky community? Organizers in these jobs. I think we've got people that literally hate the cops either we got a bunch of Colin Kaepernick types in these jobs, and who knows how many cities, and how many counties, and they harbor this deep hatred for the cops. And now they're in a position to undermine the cops. You can I draw you another analogy another analogy how about hands up don't shoot. Look at all of the bold faced lies and disinformation. This nation has to deal with now hands up don't shoot. I think is as bogus and borders on great similarities with this Muller investigation, and the so-called collusion between Trump and Russia. It didn't happen. It is now been officially determined. It didn't happen and the Democrats won't let go of it and the cable networks MSNBC and CNN can't let go of it. Because it's the only reason they have an audience. And his hands up don't shoot all over again, hands up don't shoot for those of you who may not fully remember, Ferguson, Missouri. A young African American teenager name Brown. Michael brown. Story went than he was just walking along the sidewalk one Saturday afternoon in Ferguson, Missouri near St Louis thinking happily about his upcoming freshman year at university and then a white Cup drove up and saw a happy black man and decided to murder him. And in the process of this Michael Brown. Skipping along the sidewalk. Happily thinking of his freshman year at university put his hands up. Don't you? And the white cop shot anyway. And this narrative came to life that it caused massive social disorder, and unrest and riots and fires. And other crimes throughout the Saint Louis area, predominantly in Ferguson people from all over the country agitators and activists came to join the protests because hands up don't shoot. The guy was originally didn't waiting thinking about going to college hands up don't shoot. The American people were led to believe that he was killed in cold blood hands up. Don't shoot. NFL game about two or three weeks later the Saint Louis Rams still playing in Saint Louis. During player introductions right before the game. A couple of Rams players came out running on the field with their hands up expressing solidarity with the young Michael Brown. Skipping along the sidewalk. Happily thinking of his freshman year at university hands up don't shoot. Didn't happen. Russian collusion hidden happen. Smollet staged a hoax. A couple of Trump supporters beat him up at two thirty in the morning. What can all these hoaxes all of this fake news that the drive by media has come to depend on? What really happened was young Michael Brown walked into a convenience store and robbed the place. While smoking some weed, and then after having robbed the place and all this was caught on store video then he's walking down the middle of the street after the cops had been called about the robbery. So the cop shows up finds Michael Brown who's not skipping along the sidewalk happily thinking about his freshman year university. He's casually walking in the middle of the street after having robbed a convenience store. Cop pulls up and Michael Brown attempted to enter the car and get the cops gun. The cop shot him. Numerous inquests and grand juries held testimony, even Eric Holder send people out to Saint Louis, and it was inescapably true that he had not what his hands up and he did not try to surrender. And he did not say don't shoot that. By that time. The why and the hawks was all the way around the world. So now, we have the same thing happening in Chicago. But the Chicago cops are not putting up with this. So they've released some files and now they've been told to withdraw them. Chicago police an hour after the department released the files police reportedly became subject of a court order that barred them from releasing further files, even though they were widely available online. So the cops have been told in Chicago that they can have no role in attempting to inform the Chicago public. What actually happened? That the DA's office and Cook County state's attorney's office is going to determine what happened and their version of what happened is the final version of what happened or we're not gonna let anybody any kind of contradictory version of this. We've dropped the charges. We've seal the file nobody's going to ever know what happens to this community service with the Reverend Jackson's organization. Now, there's a split on told us a split among the cast of the show empire half of them thinks Mileti did it and are outraged half of them think he didn't do it. And they're welcoming back the producers that show is on the verge being canceled. The ratings fell out of the bottom of empire, the past three months. But now, the producers of the you know, what you know, what we could bring the show back. We can bring smollet back. He's such a big item of curiosity weekend. Really stoke the ravens by bringing some. Oh, so he's on the verge of being rewarded for this? My friends. Let's go back to the subject of hawks isn't fake news. Gotta here this last night on the Fox News channel, Eric swale. Well, it's not a name you can pronounce fast. They're announce it fast, you'll say it's small well, but it's not it's wall. Well, he's democrat California. And he's one of these is really smooth talking leftist. He is an extremist radical. It doesn't look like one or sound like one. But he is he is every bit the radical that pencil neck shift is every bit the radical that Alexander, the SEO Cortez isn't by the way. We've got great audio of her coming up losing it during a hearing on the new green deal. Last night. Mike McCallum got swallowed come in as a guest. And she ended up staring at everybody in total disbelief at what swollen well was trying to pass off. She couldn't believe what she was hearing. Nor could the audience questioned the president. In your words, congressmen swale, well was a Russian agent, and he had worked with the government through his campaign to throw at American election. Now is it time for a little bit of reflection on everything that's happened. She's basically saying you wanna walk this back. Now, we know that Trump was not an agent of Russia. He was not undermining the United States. He didn't collude with Russia. Your very special counsel has said so she didn't say. That the people working with Russia where your people Mr. swale, well, Hillary Clinton and your pals at the FBI and the intelligence she didn't say that. But it's implied. Your people are the ones that tried to act with Russia, your the people have some explaining it. Oh, but she said are you maybe now maybe want to reflect on everything maybe pull back on this notion that Trump is a Russian agent Donald Trump acts that Russia's behalf when he meets with Vladimir Putin. He won't tell the country. What was said, and he essentially took the notes from the interpreter that really worries me just because he's not been criminally indicted for collusion doesn't mean he has conducted colluding types of behavior with the Russians we've seen this president have his campaign take meetings with Russians were dirt was offered. We've seen the president say on a stage. Russia keep hacking and we've seen the president constantly live at the best. Davis presidencies that he's not been indicted for criminal collusion, we still have problems. And that's what I think should be addressed by. Being the full Muller report. What do you think is going to be in it? The guy and let you live your life for a year and a half Muller after he learned there was no bight away congressman small well, there never was any collusion. And there was never any evidence of collusion. And this investigation never should have happened Muller. Should never have been appointed. There was never any evidence of any collusion. Zero zilch. Nada. None. There was never any collusion. There wasn't any even evidence of it. This whole thing is so bogus. And even he's going down the same road at Brennan went down. Yeah. He's telling Russia the hacked Hillary's emails, you people need to get a life. You people really just need to dial it down a little bit. And get a life. You just can't see it when you're being mocked and made fun of your out there claiming for months. That the Russians hacked your DNC serve Dino. There still is an edible evidence for that. Folks. Do you know, they're still isn't he evidence that the DNC computers were hacked by Russia? There isn't any and WikiLeaks maintains that whatever they got from the DNC server did not come from Russia. And the pedestrian emails ended up being made public because he fell for fishing attack. A simple fishing attack in his regular Email, the DNC server, nobody has proven the Russians hacked it. So Trump's out there, mocking you people, and you laughing at you. Hey, Russia because the media's going nuts about Hillary's missing emails, and where RV and so the media can't find him and the Democrats can't find him and Hillary can't find him and everybody wants him. So Trump says hey, Russia. They're saying you're hacking everybody. Why don't you? Maybe if you've got the Hillary emails, could you let our media. No. And these people fall for this. They believe.

"But I'm a man of faith. And I'm a man that has knowledge of my history. And I would not bring my family lives or the movement through a fire. Like, this wouldn't what movement are you talking about? Yeah. And his to invoke his own mother to say that that he would not tell a lie here and to invoke his amaze mother in this and that was discussing this yesterday. I was like you've gotta be kidding. But he can invoke his own mother because we know that the there there's all these connections with the family contacted a friend of theirs. Who contacted the Kim FOX sure really knows his mother's looking up for him. I got that that's fine or his family, whatever. But the, but the idea is that he would focus on mother as sign that he has integrity that he would never utter words that would violate his obligation to have the integrity that his mother taught him is just garbage. And he's invoking is faith and all this nonsense. He sat on national television with Robin Roberts and blame Trump supporters for attacking him when that didn't happen. Two men from Nigeria who admitted it. It was all stage Jesse staged it with them. That's by their own admission. All the way through and so he's lying again. And he's holding this up as evidence that he's free because nothing he did nothing wrong. Prosecutors insisting yesterday. Well, no, that's not true. He we do believe he did something wrong. We don't want to prosecute this case. Now, why is that why does something like this happen? Well, there could be a couple of explanations. One of them includes Michelle Obama's chief of staff. Yup. Was one of the people who was working feverishly behind the scenes to try and push the state's attorney to take care of Justice case, and that state's attorney eventually did recuse herself from the case. But that but still ultimately the state's attorney's office making this decision to drop the prosecution, and so you have there is a privilege here that is not accessible to all of society are a privilege here that is not accessible to most of us white privilege, and it doesn't involve your race. In some ways. I thought yesterday was a very good thing. When I say that what I mean is it was a demonstration that the thing that we constantly hear from the left that privileges and privilege and oppression or all Dedic based on your skin color. That's not true. That's not true that is a lie privilege in this case turns out your proximity to the ruling class your proximity to wealth, your proximity to liberalism, specifically, he preaches all of the beliefs of identity, politics, liberalism, therefore, he needs. He deserves every ounce of protection that our system can muster. And at the end of it, despite the fact, they he's now planted the seeds of doubt about actual victims that people who will actually be hurt and assaulted by setting the precedent of being somebody who lied about an attack like that. That doesn't matter to any of them he succeeds because of what he believes in and because of his access to wealth and power, and that is where the disparity comes from. And that is something we should resolve as a society race the race thing that way lies chaos. You're you're trying to basically you're trying to tell people that the situation they're in is because of something that they can never change or the or that the people who are oppressing them are doing it because of something that they can never change your white therefore you oppress that lie that way lies race war that way lies. Irresolvable differences this we can fix and his co stars on empire. His former co stars on empire are all tweeting out and supportive him. Justice has been done. We knew he was innocent. Because this has been crafted very this has been crafted perfectly to make it appear as if jussie smollet was wronged. Now the victim. And that's not what happened here at all. Right in the Chicago police department at the leadership in Chicago to include Rahm Emanuel. I don't even know if this is genuine or not, but they're all upset about it in his case. I don't know if it's genuine. We'll have more on Justice its case.

"Roberts, David gas. Good Morning, America. She is out. Now talking about that terrible interview with Jesse small at the actor who faked the hate crime against himself, according to the Chicago police department. Yes. The whole country, and they're beating them up because he's black and gay and hates Trump in the middle of the night in Chicago. One of the coldest nights of year never made sense. But whatever. Right. Some people were very upfront about not believing it. Yeah. Some called that irresponsible at the time. I didn't think he was telling the truth. I know somebody else here the reason people don't believe you Jesse is because you're not. That was before the whole thing blew up. Nice job. Thank you. I appreciate that. I didn't end mine with beautiful Jesse. Mike Robin did. Yeah. Beautiful. Jesse? So 'cause you're not telling the truth. That because you're not. Beautiful. Jesse Robin Roberts with talking about was that the how I get it done event. Put on every month by the cut. She said, quote, I'll be wasn't there. Well, who's who she says, I'll be completely honest. I was like I don't know if I want to do the interview or not. I said I don't want to sit down with them because if he's going to lawyer up, and then I was told he wants to speak with you because he was outraged by people making assumptions about whether it had happened or not. Man. She said she thought she was in a no win situation. She says, quote, I'm a black gay woman. He's black gay, man. He's saying that there's a hate crime. So if I'm too hard, then my LGBT community is gonna say, you don't believe a brother if I'm to light on them. It's like, oh, you are in the community. You're just giving him a pass. It was a no win situation for me. Well, that's the job you're in. Right. That's the thing. That's the problem with because I can I can sympathize and understand at least or I can I can appreciate where she's coming from. If that's really the feeling though, if that's what you're concerned about your in the wrong line of work. Absolutely. You're a journalist. Your job isn't supposed to be whether or not you piss off the wrong, right people. How will I look asking these challenging questions? That's well was the problem with her row. Will I look bright? Golly. What you're so afraid of the Twitter. Mom, that's what it comes down to. That's what's almost astonishing. She didn't press him on any red flags. No, she didn't call out his country Dixon's. She didn't call out the fact that he called police and left a noose around his neck. None of that game up. No. How does that happen? Because this fits the narrative. Right. You need that story to be true. You through. And now, honestly you're playing the victim. It was just no win will always me. It is. And I have nothing against Robin Roberts. That's not it. But you're not the victim. You're supposed to do your job, right? People are now ticked right? I it was a thing. Listen, if I tell the truth, I know. It's the truth right now because it's the truth. She went on saying people are looking at the interview through the eyes of how did you not know? I did the interview forty eight hours before it came out that it was probably a hoax. I had. I had that information or knew what the brothers were alleging. Heck? Yeah. I would have asked him about that. I pride myself in being fair. I know how much work went into being balanced about what had happened in challenge. Him on certain things. He never really challenged him on anything though. No. That was it. It was like here's what some people are saying never the follow up. Can you understand? Why people are questioning your story because it doesn't make sense. No what I was angry about initially for we talked about it the day of the interview. Right. Was that she she didn't acknowledge what had happened and call him out. And when he's totally contradicted himself. Like, that's your job. It's like you just want to give him a platform to tell his story. That was all it was about it wasn't about asking what the truth was. Oh my gosh. And she concluded the challenging interview with beautiful Jesse. I forgot that part hard hitting journalism is that what she said. Yeah. At the end of the interview, if you listen to the whole thing, I don't need to do that. I don't think, but I think the best part of this is that the well the best part of how the Chicago police department handled this aside from actually like slow walking everything waiting until the day that this interview airs. To say, hey, by the way, we don't think he's telling the truth. Because that's when it started coming out. That's when sources started leaking Chicago media outlets where people were saying now, actually we're kind of looking at him as a possible suspect. But we already knew that. I mean, we knew that there was red flags out, but they had been Chicago police have been very very very careful about. Yeah. Because. Seen as racist. Right. They wanted to say, hey, we are handling this like we would any other reported crime. And right now, he is a victim. Until we're ready to say, he's not. Then Eddie Johnson the superintendent comes out with the sledgehammer and says, no, I'm sickened by this. Well, are they still trying to claim that he was in fact, a victim isn't that still the claim that's floating around out there? His defense team. There are still people who are out there saying that they are not going to believe it until they have concrete evidence. I think I know. I know you're always waiting to hear what Queen Latifah has to say she did an interview with Yahoo news where she says I'm going to wait until I see the concrete evidence of this. You know, you have the Chicago police department coming out and saying what he did was disgusting. We had a lot of evidence out there that you don't know about yet. But okay, the flat earth societies pledge their support to Jesse now. That's good. By the way, there's one that we landed on the moon site already. I don't remember this clip, but it was titled what people need to learn from this story Jesse. Here. This is the truth. This is the truth because. Everybody has their own idea. Some healing. Healing hurtful. But I just want some people members of the LGBTQ community young black children to know, how strong the arm my Josh because they're comfortable enough in their own skin that they don't have to make up hate crimes like you. Right. The piece came out last week. Maybe just the startup was too much. Caused him to do this victim. And oh my God. Hollywood reporter was talking about that the pressures of fame. That's he's really he's still is a victim. You see he's thirty two years old. He's not twelve not on a Disney show. But that whole thing of people just want to see what they want to see it's like, you can't you can't understand. Why people are questioning this sense who leaves a noose around their neck for forty five minutes. It doesn't call the cops. Right. He's thirty six by the way. Okay. Thank you, David. Speaking of hate crimes, totally different story here. But this is a mayor David small town in South Carolina. The mayor of that town says that she was the victim of a hate crime. And I think she's still sticking to the story. Darnall bird mcph pherson says she woke up one morning saw her car covered in a yellow substance. Now, you're not have any markings nothing. No, no message on their no swastikas. Nothing like that. It was just covered in this yellow substance. And she says, well, this is obviously hate crime. Her husband said, well, it looks like. Spray paint. It was a grainy substance like industrial spray foam used a patch concrete. That's what she told. Newsweek looks like little pebbles. They said stuff was on her husband's cars. Well, so she calls the cops. And in a statement to WBZ D, the mayor said love conquers hate and my husband, and I refuse to be intimidated by those who perpetrated this act of vandalism which classifies inactive hatred now. According to the police report told officers that she did have a possible suspect in mind at the time. Apparently someone had told her that someone wanted to kill her. Mcpherson told. Newsweek, she likened it as a hate crime. Because number one there's a history of racism in our town of Lamar South Carolina. Okay. Which put that up on the billboard as you. Go into town. Right. Welcome to Lamar. Come see the history of racism museum. And then in another statement, the mayor said during the seventies crosses were burned in the yard of our home. When my mother was involved in the civil rights movement on this very same corner in this very same front yard. That's why immediately saw this was covered in yellow paint. Immediately thought there back forty years after the fact they're back. Okay. Okay. Well, then. Apparently the cops came by. They didn't take a sample, and they are not investigating any further. You know, why because they're racist. Because it was pollen. Pollen pollen L E, N, polite and tree pollen. But here's the thing. You may not know. I I can't believe you didn't say this the bees. Yeah. Had little tiny mega hats on. It was pollen tree that was a hate crime. Okay. That's a little embarrassing. Now, isn't it? Oops. Oh my gosh. Wanted to bring up his story you guys. I don't know if you happen to see this over the weekend. I wish got sort of flipping back and forth Saturday night TV there was a basketball game. And there was a UFC fight on. I'm going back and forth. And I saw this happen this UFC fighter named Johnny Walker. Seriously. Busy redhead? No, he's not Johnny Walker red. No. But he wanted like thirty six seconds. He did this like flying me right to this guy's head. I mean Bob down, and he's the, you know, the ref calls the fight it's done. And so then he celebrated. Doing the worm lake fell straight from a standing position. Yeah. And said, I dislocated my shoulder. Oh my gosh. In the celebration. There's audio Joe Rogan..

"Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. So CNN don's Lennon so much objective journalism. It will make your head spin it make full ninety minute movies of Don lemon, journalists me. I mean, it is just incredible. Don lemon. He is defending jussie smollet to the fullest extent possible for a human being to do. So he's his real concern is that conservatives are going to eat jesse's lunch. So I guess we're no longer worried about a Lynch mob. Now, we are worried about a lunch mob. So here is Don lemon worried about the lunch mob. That is going to eat Justice lunch mean frankly, Jesse is going to be served prison commissary food. I don't think anybody wants his lunch. But here's Don lemon. This is playing out every single moment in cable news, Sean Hannity's gonna eat jussie smollet lunch. Every single second. Tucker Carlson is going to eat Justice. Smallest lunch. Every single second of the president of the United States is gonna eat his lunch and route is the president of the United States watch every night. You will new well cable news. Okay. Cable news gonna eat them up. That's the real problem here. The problem is not that he hoax America. The problem is not that. He lied about a huge swath of people President Trump just tweeted out a few minutes ago. What about mega in the tens of millions of insulted with your racist and dangerous comments hashtag mega and the president is not wrong about this. The president. Now looks at the president beat interjecting on these sorts of issues. No, the president should not be introducting on these issues anymore than President Obama should've been interjecting on Trayvon Martin Michael Brown, but Trump is not wrong on the actual substance of his comments, which is this was a massive slander against at least half the country and not only that it was Jesse smell at attempting to rip open racial scabs, rip them off in order. So that you could benefit himself. Instead, you can push a narrative that is absolutely untrue down limits main concern is that people are going to be means injustice. Smart. Oh, wow. What a what a rough life. Jussie smollet hasn't had. If you want to show me evidence the guys mentally ill. Then we can talk about sympathy for Justice mullet unless you have. Any evidence he's mentally ill. Then he is a piece of human debris, you end up denigrating the Chicago police department who are attempting to do their best in a city rife with crime, and you are willing to testify to send other people who are innocent to jail. Yeah. My sympathy level runs a little low for jussie smollet. Not Don lemon Zo not done limits. He says that his big concern here is it black and gay people are most affected by the hoax. Of course. Because Don lemon is an intersection or leftist that has all Don lemon cares about. He's not a journalist. He's intersectional opinion, leftist on CNN and he's portrayed as an objective journalist. And then the entire media goes nuts when CNN hires a partisan Republican as one of their political editor is one of their many political editors yes because CNN is a bastion of objectivity with Chris formal. Andrew Cuomo's brother down lemon on every night. Viewing leftist nonsense. Here's Don lemon doing just that last night to certain groups of people, even if they were skeptical there, they said, I hope this is not true. But folks, gay, folks. Oh my God. I hope he and you know, why black folk in gay folks say that because a real victims of well because there are real victims of homophobia racism, but also because unfortunately, we tend to all be painted with the same brush when one person does wrong, and that's why we always say that when something goes wrong, if we hope the person is not black. We hope the person is not nobody is painting all black people or gay people as hoaxers because Jesse smollet was a hoaxer. Nobody is doing that. And this is the media already attempting to drive this narrative, so what they're going to do. They're already preparing to make exact same mistake. You can see it happening in real time. Because here's what's going to happen a month from now somebody is going to do the same hoax. Somebody's gonna do a very similar hoax. Maybe not as grievously botched as this one. Maybe not as stupid as this one. Maybe he's not going to hire his personal trainers from the gym for thirty five hundred dollars and a personalized to go down to the local hardware store. Purchasing rope bleach and red, hats and. Go out in Chicago at two AM and Clinton third maga- country. Maybe they're not going to do that. But there will be somebody else who makes a false claim. And then when people on the right say, listen, you know, evidence that might be like a good thing. Then the left will say the only reason you're asking for evidence right now is because it's because you look at Justice, let's case. And now, you say that all black people are all gay people are hoping and then maybe that one turns out to be a hoax and the media say, well, you know, the real problem here. The real problem here is that now everyone's gonna paint all future hate crime victims with the same brush. And then it's up for the next race crime hoaxer. The media are learning exactly the reverse of the lesson. They ought to be learning from this lesson. They ought to be learning from this as hey, maybe we should have waited for evidence on the Justice mullet thing instead of just jumping on it with both feet and suggesting that it was inherently believable because we wanted to believe it. That's what happened here. The media jumped on this because the story was too good to check. And so they didn't check this is a pure example of confirmation bias. And now the media are saying, well, you know, what could happen. You know, the real problem with the? Jussie smollet hoax. It's not us wasn't us jumping the gun. The real problem is that in the future. People may now ask for more evidence. And that would be them applying racism because if they ask for more evidence, the only reason they do that is because they think that all black and gay people are just like jussie smollet. So next time there's a hoaxer who does the exact same thing or something. Similar people. Ask for evidence. Don, lemon will call them racist for asking for evidence. It will come out that it was a hoax, and then Don lemon will say well next time. If you ask for evidence, you're only doing that. Because you're racist. I it's it's it's so circular and so self defeating and so bad for the country and members of the media. I'm not even sure they know they're doing this legitimately. I don't even know that they are that they believe they're doing this. They believe they're being sympathetic. What they're actually doing it setting themselves up for another fall. Because if you think the media learned day damn thing from this. You are dead wrong. The media did not learn one thing from this. No one in the media. No one is turning around and saying, hey, you know, what jumped the gun? It's because I wanted to believe that it was true. And so I completely botched this one instead. Getting all the democratic twenty twenty candidates. Stealth deleting their own stuff. They're just going back and still deleting their comments or leaving them up without any further comment. You're seeing democratic candidates come out and say, you know, what guys I need to wait for more information. Okay. So you didn't need to wait from when it was a sketchy account that was being reported by third hand sources, but you do need to wait. For more information after there is a formal legal arrest of Justice mullet. That's when you need to wait for more information. Real coming up an awful story from the United States coast guard were Lieutenant has now been arrested.

Chicago police Uber intended Eddie Johnson says he took it personally when detectives determined that empire actor Jesse smollet allegedly lied about being the victim of racist and homophobic, attack speaking Thursday at a news conference Johnson said he was angry that another black man would exploit racial divisions for his own gain. Before I get started on why we're here is I look out into the crowd. I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention because that's who really deserves the amount of attention that we're giving to this particular incident. This morning. Come to you not only as the superintendent of the Chicago police department. But also has a black man who spent his entire life living in the city of Chicago. I know the racial divide that exists here. I know how hard it's been for our city and our nation to come together. Now. So no the disparities, and I know the history. This announcement today recognizes that empire actor Jesse Smolin took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career. I'm left hanging. My head and asking why why would anyone especially an African American man. Use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations. Alka someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol. Opportunity to manipulate the symbol to further his own public profile can an individual who's been embraced by the city of Chicago turnaround. A slap everyone in this city in the face making these false claims. Bogus. Police reports. Calls real harm. They do harm to every legitimate victim. Who's in need of support by police and investigators as well as the citizens of this city, Chicago host one of the largest pride parades in the world. And we're proud of that as a police department and also has a city. Lawyers for small at say, the Chicago police department put on an organized law enforcement spectacle when the superintendent detail investigator's findings about the alleged attack on the empire, actor, and they say the actor denies the allegations high level trade talks between the US and China continue in Washington with the goal of easing a standoff, that's clouding the global economy. Chinese delegation is meeting with the US team led by Trade Representative Robert lighthizer secretary of state, Mike Pompeo told the FOX business network. The question remains of China will give up its bad habits. These are real threats, and we need to be capable of protecting our information and our data does China admit to the cyber intrusions. Do they admit to to the theft of intellectual property, we're the former president of Microsoft on this program couple months ago, Steve bomber? And he said that ninety percent of the companies in China, use the Microsoft operating system. One percent pay for it. It costs Microsoft ten billion dollars a year in profit there. This this this enormous transfer this unlawful transfer of American wealth, American innovation and creativity. That's taken place over the last decades is enormous. It's historic. The Trump administration is determined to push back against it. We opened by talking about these trade agreements that are being worked on in Washington. Even as we speak. They will attempt to address this. The Chinese need to acknowledge that this is taking place need to put structural changes in place to prevent it from taking place, and then there needs to be an enforcement mechanism. So that the whole world can know that these things are. It continued to happen. Do how do we get to a point where we can trust that? They will keep the promise. I mean, let's say you get an Emo you. And we get these agreements that. Yeah, we're going to move the needle on I theft haven't they made promises to us in the past that they haven't kept braille. They certainly have. That's absolutely the case. And arbitration knows this we won't fall into those same pitfalls. They've made commitments on cyber on other things which they've just simply not honored. That's why the enforcement mechanism and if you talk to him Basser lighthizer secretary attention for even two minutes. They will have the heart of these discussions will surround enforcement mechanisms, and I hope that the Chinese will be prepared to permit those to take place if they do perhaps we can find a good solid trade way to move forward. Yeah. The world's at two biggest economies are locked in a trade war that started over allegations that China deploys predatory tactics in its bid to take over US technological dominance China denies engages in the behavior. President Trump is pledging to expand opportunity for Americans of every race religion and creed as he commemorates black history month speaking to hundreds Thursday at a White House reception. The president boasted about the economy and said, the unemployment rate African Americans is that what he said the lowest level. Today, we're here to honor the extraordinary contributions of African Americans to every aspect of American life history and culture from the earliest days of this nation, African American leaders pioneers and visionaries have uplifted and inspired our country in art in science, literature law film, politics business and every arena of national life. The depth and glory of these contributions are beyond measure, you know, it. I know it and everybody knows it the beginning of our Republic African Americans have given their heart their love and their very lives to the curse suit. And you know, this better than anybody. You have worked so hard. I guess when you get right down to it. We're all working very hard. But the pursuit of liberty and Justice for all. So we pledge in.

Liberty and peace as Americans we all share the same dreams, the same hopes and the same magnificent destiny we are. Now, we are now and will forever be and will forever be one people one family and one glorious nation under God. Trump also touted passage of criminal Justice reform that was passed in December. He says the nation sentencing laws disproportionately harm African American communities far greater than anyone else. Well in other news this morning here on America's First News. The editor of USA today has apologized for an aids portraying black face that was published in the Zona state university yearbook on her watch Nicole Carroll says as she edited the ASU yearbook for nineteen eighty eight eighty nine it had a photo of two people in black face pretending to be boxer Mike Tyson and his former wife Robin givens in a twist of irony. The racist image turned up during a review of yearbooks done by USA today. Journalists Carol says she was shocked to find the photo in the yearbook she edited and finally this morning here on America's First News. Why do zebras have strikes? Well, it's the question that's been around as long as zebras have now. Scientists from the university of Bristol and the university of California Davis think they may have the answer. The researchers dressed horses in black and white striped coats stood them with horses that were unadorned and waited for flies the same number of flies appeared to approach both types of courses. But researchers found that fewer horse flies landed on the ones decked out in stripe. So the conclusion of the stripe seem to somehow confuse the horse flies as they tried to land on the stripe horses. That's just the stripes exists to get zebras protection from bloodsucking insects that can spread disease. Take us with you. Wherever you go down. I could use some of those stripes on the golf course as those mosquitoes come at me take us with you wherever you go.

Attack rate race hate crime was a hoax. And will we've got a lot of your comments on that coming up if you'd like to get in eight six six ninety redeye goes from here now that CBS out of Chicago is reporting a possible motive that he wasn't happy small wasn't happy with the initial response to the hate letter that was sent to him. Also reporting that and this is where I believe they're going without them saying that the police also from the brother's apartment confiscated stamps. And a magazine, and it was it was a letter that was written by using letters from a magazine. Well, if that happened that sets up an entirely different scenario, and probably a different crime is the FBI is actually investigating that portion of the incident because it's United States postal service that was used in order to mail that by the way is that an implied have you? If you mailed think about that if you send this this is more than just a hate crime. Because if you what they said a powder. Right. Is that an act of terrorism? If if they can show that the intent would be to to invoke fear. Yes. Because it just wouldn't terrorize him. Whoever opens it up or whoever's in that building at that time, you get that. And there's a powder in it. You don't know what that powder is? That's a serious crime rate that you're deliberately putting that in that package in order to. To scare people. That's that's terrorism. And we also talking about the president calling a national emergency sixteen states now and others groups now suing the president we talked about the first suit actually came from Texas land owner same with the president was doing was unconstitutional.

They are in federal law when you file a suit your suit becomes legitimate because you file it as a victim. You're a victim. You have been harmed and you have been harmed either by the legislation or you've been harmed. Okay. By the executive order legal terminal legal standing or not. Being an attorney. I'm okay with legal terminology. Understand that. And I just was bringing the point that you mentioned that they were victims. In fact, was your. Here's here's the deal with. Domain.

"Morning to be joined on the line by Chicago's top cop, a friend of this program. I'm talking about police superintendent Eddie Johnson superintendent, welcome back to the program. How is your twenty nineteen going so far? So far so good and thanks for having me. Happy holidays. Happy happy holidays to you too. If we look back as we are want to do in terms of the beginning of the year looking in a from a retrospective perspective at what occurred in two thousand nineteen. What would you consider to be your biggest accomplishments with regard to the Chicago police department? Well, you know, I am very pleased with the fact that for the second consecutive year, violent crime has has come down decreased matter of fact, overall crime came down about ten percent, but the violent crime came down about fourteen percent that include the cost murders and shootings. So I'm very pleased with that. Also, I think you know after reaching our goal of growing a department by a thousand officers we met that goal while keeping up with attrition. I think that was huge, you know, but again, you know, reducing crime is not all of just about hiring more police officers. You know, we have to address all the other factors that that causes crime. And then the third piece of it is, you know, we started to reestablish the trust in the community. Now, we're trust had been non a fractured a bit. So there's still a lot of work to be done, of course. But I think we made some enroll so we're trending and in the right direction. What about the police department as well as the city's move for a consent decree, which is currently right now in the hands of a federal judge to finalize the consent decree that the state actually ended up doing because the federal government reneged on its responsibility. There. I think you know, as I said from the very beginning. I praised the custody decree because it's only going to make CPA better. And I think that we make it better eventually be an an organization that the entire city can be proud of. And that's the goal to treat. Everybody fairly and respectfully cassette decree. You know, don't get me wrong. It'll be a little painful for the rank and file officers in terms of some of the things that we have to get. Accomplished. At the same time. You know, it guarantees that the city has to to provide resources for the department that we perhaps didn't have before. And you know, the the training. Equipment. It's going to be paramount to to transform you how to police department operates. So like, I said, you know, I I'll like when we finally get it finalized. And you know, we get into it because the quicker we do that then the quicker, we can work toys. Making the rest of the reforms necessary to make better you mentioned about the buy into the consent decree, and actually it will be required for them to follow that. But yet the F O P the fraternal order of police is vehemently oppose to many of the requirements within the consent decree. How do you reconcile that? Well, you know, I think that. Hope e. You know, of course, their their responsibility is took representing rank and file, and I think that they have to understand that we do have to change the way we do business. And and you know, it might be a little painful, but but it's for the good because you know, I've acknowledged from the beginning. That we've treated certain parts of the city, and and minorities inappropriately. So I'll listen the world. Well, we live in right now, we just don't police the way we did ten years ago even five years ago, you know, so this is designed to make us better. You know, the fact that someone else is overseeing a ten me personally. I don't have an issue with that. Because that just helps to make us be better. You know? So they're they're opposed to it, of course. But I think in the end it'll be better for. Police department as well. As just citizens of the city as you were mentioning some of the accomplishments that you had with regard to twenty eighteen in terms of dropping the crime rates homicides and shooting 's fell by fourteen percent from the two thousand seventeen period and twenty seven percent in terms of what occurred in two thousand sixteen still you also had to deal with horrific tragedy in terms of four officers being killed in the line of duty as well. As if I'm not mistaken superintendent, correct me some six officers that took their life maybe been five because I know at the beginning of the year. There was also one that decided to take their life. How do you deal with that? In fact, when I'm going to do is to get your response. Plus, we'll take some phone calls only because we're up at the break. But I want you to just let us know in terms of how does that impacted department? And also, how does that personally impact you when you? Have to stand and and make comment at these officers funerals. Yeah. It's a difficult thing. I won't kid you, you know, we lost four officers in the line of duty to they got hit by the train. And then of course, mercy hospital and then commander Paul ballot. It's a difficult thing. And then when you when you factor in the suicides that we had to endure. It's tough. And I tell people all the time, you know, you know, when I have to talk to the spouses of these outfits is not easy, you know, because they're distraught. Not something you plan for you know, I it happens. And it's it's difficult. You know? But I think I know personally, you know, I get a lot of support myself from police chiefs all over the country is a lot of citizens of the city. You know, when I'm out in the public. They'll always stopped me. You know? Condolences about this stuff. So it does help and it makes it easier. But we're gonna talk we're going to talk about that support actually support that you received at a mayoral debate that happened on Thursday night. And plus we're going to take your calls coming up on the other side right now. You're listening to.
