Ellison affair exposes anti-Trump hypocrisy

Ellison affair exposes anti-Trump hypocrisy

By Ray Hanania

Democrats and their haters of President Donald Trump want you to believe that they love Muslims and they love civil rights.

And yet, when the opportunity came to actually love a Muslim by electing Congressman Keith Ellison as chair the Democratic National Committee, they bailed on Ellison.

Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress. He was nominated by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, who was backstabbed by the hypocrite Democrats and anti-Trump haters and should have been the party presidential nominees.

But when the Democrats and the anti-Trump haters got together, they took a dive on Ellison and instead voted to elect a nobody who happened to be “Latino” (from the Dominican Republic) and was appointed to the post of U.S. Secretary of Labor by President Barack Obama. Perez never lobbied or campaigned for the spot but was pushed in to it by Obama and by the Democratic leadership and cheered by the anti-Trump haters who continue to disguise their hatred by asserting that they love Muslims, they love minorities, they love civil rights.

The truth is, their “love” is selfish politics and the suffering of Muslims, Arabs and other minorities is little more than just an opportunity for them. The anti-Trump haters will step on the backs of these “victims” in order to empower themselves politically.

We must support Trump’s War on the biased new media

We must support Trump's War on the biased new media

By Ray Hanania

I’m not a big fan of the mainstream news media, which I define as the national press, (excluding the local community media).

President Trump’s attacks on the mainstream news media are justified and we should be supporting it.

The national news media lies. They exaggerate. They fuel racism and bigotry with their reporting. Their mantra “if it bleeds it leads” is the driving-force in determining what gets covered and what doesn’t.

In truth, the national news media is no longer independent, but owned by a small handful of multi-national conglomerates and corporations whose purpose is not fair reporting, but greed.

Commonsense approach to illegal immigration neededPodcast

By Ray Hanania

Not being a politician, President Trump probably rushed too quickly to crack down on the nation’s immigration problem.

America has an immigration problem that’s not about losing jobs or even protecting civil right, but rather is about being able to control who enters this country to keep the criminals out.

An estimated 13 million illegal immigrants live in America. President Trump and others estimate about 3 million of them are engaged in crimes, other than being illegal.

A common problem involves illegal immigrants who drive without insurance and get in accidents with other citizens who are left holding the bag. The illegal immigrant can hide and “disappear” leaving the victim dealing with the terrible costs of bad accidents that sometimes involve serious injuries and hospitalization costs. That’s unfair.

1967 was a tragic year in Illinois

Published in the SW Newspaper Group Feb. 9, 2017 

By Ray Hanania

This year is the Golden Anniversary of one of the most tragic years in the lives of many Baby Boomers who still remember that far back to 1967.

It was kind of a wake-up call for many of us as we climbed out of mental nuclear bomb shelters made of wooden elementary school desks and realized that Sputnik was just a steel ball with antennas.

1967 started out with many momentous anniversaries, like the one that just passed January 26-27, when 23 inches of snow slammed Chicagoland and buried us forever in memories. A second major snow storm hit Chicago 12 years later in 1979, changing Chicago politics forever, although I am surprised that today, many young people don’t know of Jane Byrne, an icon of women’s achievement as Chicago’s first woman mayor.

The blizzard blurred, at least for Chicagoans, the other big news of Jan. 27 that shook the country. During a pre-launch test of Apollo 1 at Cape Kennedy (Cape Canaveral) in Florida, the interior command module of NASA’s Apollo spacecraft exploded in fire killing astronauts Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee. Grissom was the first of the Mercury Seven astronauts to die. ...
