In a sad story from Chicago, an 8-year-old refugee from Congo died after his plane landed at O’Hare International, but is that the whole story?

The young man, David Dieme was with his father an several other children coming from Dubai to settle in the United States.

The family was passing through Chicago, but after going through U.S. Customs on their way to their next flight, Dieme became sick and unresponsive.

The airport medical staff examined the boy who didn’t have a fever and decided to send him to the hospital. David Dieme died at the hospital.

A spokesman for the Center of Disease Control said that the child did not have a disease that would threaten the health of anyone on the flight.

An autopsy was done on the child on Wednesday, but the results have not been made public yet.

This is a sad story, but is there something happening we are not being told about?

The strange death of David Dieme has no real answers yet and without conclusive facts, the Internet conspiracy theorists think that it could be some new disease that the CDC is hiding from us.

If a refugee brought some strange mystery illness to America, then that would change a lot of people’s perception on refugees.

There is no evidence that the illness has spread and there is also no evidence that the CDC is covering up anything.

If more information becomes available we will let you know, but for now this looks like a sick little boy died, and although mysterious, there is no grand conspiracy hiding a new disease… yet.

Chicago is a rough town, but nobody expected this to happen inside of a congressman’s office.

A Chicago woman set herself on fire this week as she walked into U.S. Rep. Danny Davis’ office.

A woman entered the office and spoke with the staff for a moment before she picked up a bottle of hand sanitizer and poured it on herself.

What the woman covered in hand sanitizer did next was quite shocking. Pulling out a lighter, the woman standing in the congressman’s office lit herself on fire.

The woman was engulfed in flames immediately, but the shocked staff jumped into action quickly responded with extinguisher as the woman was running out of the office.

The woman somehow survived but with major burns.

The authorities have not identified the woman, but police say that her condition has “stabilized”.

We do no know why the woman walked into the office and lit herself on fire, but anything can happen in Chicago.

There is still no comment from Danny Davis, the 20-year congressman, who was not in the office at the time of the fire.

Check back to Liberty News Now as we follow up on this weird story.

The numbers for the violence in America is skyrocketing and no city has fallen faster than Chicago with an amazing amount of murders this year.

So far this year, Chicago has seen 487 homicides and over 2,800 people have been shot.

Compare those numbers to last year and you will see that Chicago is as violent in the first 8 months of 2016 as all of 2015.

Last year, there were 491 homicides and just under 3,000 people shot. Unless something miraculous happens, Chicago is going to shatter the numbers from last year.

The tragedy in Chicago is that the communities that are shooting themselves are not mad at the violence that they are causing, but take every opportunity to call the police murders.

The irony is sickening. The city that just had 400 people shot in a single month is protesting the police for one mistake.

There were 78 people killed in Chicago this month, and the community is out protesting the police.

August was the most violent month in almost 20 years, and the month isn’t even over.

Nobody is safe in Chicago, even NBA star, Dwayne Wade’s cousin was shot and killed in the Windy city while she was pushing a stroller. Luckily the two shooters have been caught.

The horror that is happening in Chicago is spreading to other cities as well. Milwaukee and Washington DC have seen homicide rates spike this year to numbers they have not seen in over 20 years.

Baltimore had a good year back in 2011 where they had only 197 homicides the entire year. Compare that to this year where the city has had it’s 200th murder and there are still four months to go in the year.

Growing violence is a real problem in our cities and it is only getting worse.

gun laws

After any major shooting in America, you will hear the liberals come out and demand new gun laws and they call for a ban on assault weapons, but their plan won’t work.

At least banning assault rifles and making it extremely hard to get handguns should stop violence right?

In Chicago, a city with some of the strictest gun laws in America, there have been 2,395 shooting victims since the start of the New Year. In comparison, there were 2,988 all of last year.

Chicago has a ban on assault rifles, it has a violence tax, strict rules for buying handguns and they even control the number of gun stores and their locations, but none of that stopped the city from having it’s deadliest month in over a decade.

In July there were 65 killed by gun violence, the most since July of 2006.

Those are just the July records, but in June, there were close to 72 people killed, so at least the July numbers were a little better. If that is what you can call it.

So far this year there have been close to 400 homicides in Chicago in seven months, and 490 all of last year. Unfortunately, Chicago looks like it will almost double the number from last year by 2017.

Liberals try so hard to end gun violence by taking away the guns, instead of taking away the desire to kill. Most of the deaths in Chicago are black on black crimes that are happening in the most impoverished parts of the city.

If one was to look at the situation without biased, then controlling guns isn’t the answer to stopping violence, but it is getting people out of poverty and giving them something to live for.

What are your thoughts on the unbelievable homicide rate in a city with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation? Let us know in the comments below.

We all remember what happened at the canceled Donald Trump rally in Chicago when racial tensions were high and Trump fans had to be escorted out of the arena.

What we saw at the Trump rally is a hint to why there is a mass exodus of rich people leaving Chicago.

“About 3,000 individuals with net assets of $1 million or more, not including their primary residence, moved from the city last year, with many citing rising racial tensions and worries about crime as factors in the decision,” as reported by the Chicago Tribune.

In fact, millionaires are leaving Chicago at an incredible rate, but the windy city is not alone. The rich are leaving the terror-stricken French capital of Paris t a rate of 7,000 per year.

Rome is next on the list with 6,000 leaving per year, and the numbers are going up.

In Chicago, the reason the rich are deciding to leave their home has a lot to do with the rise in crime, and especially the increase in tension between races.

Chicago has seen better days. Crime has continued to rise under Mayor Rahm Emanuel, former Obama chief of staff, but it is the income inequality and racially charged groups like Black Lives Matter that are creating a hostile environment.

The wealthy do not feel safe in Chicago anymore and they are doing something about it.

The ones who can are getting out of town, and the ones that have to stay in the city are buying things like safe rooms or panic rooms in the event of an attack.

Are they being paranoid or are they really getting out before the storm hits? What do you think? Is there a civil unrest coming to Chicago or are the rich just looking for a warmer place to live? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

This past Friday night, Donald Trump was to hold a rally at the University of Chicago.

As you’ve likely seen on every media outlet that covers politics, protesters shut down the event and chaos ensued.

While Hillary Clinton would have described it as a “spontaneous gathering” if it had happened to her, there was nothing coincidental about the protesters who decided to disrupt the event.

It started with the students and faculty of the university. On Monday night, several black, Hispanic and Muslim groups began to spread the word and organize against Trump’s visit to their campus . . . they were soon joined by some of the faculty of tenured professors and administrators.

The organizers penned a letter to UIC’s decision makers to cancel the event.

One science professor at the school, Amalia Pallares, was keen on what to expect, “It was a security issue. We felt that it would be a big challenge for the university to protect the students.”

Pallares got it wrong on who needed to be protected as several students were arrested for acts of violence against Trump supporters and police.

To fan the flames, George Soros’ printed signs and emailed supporters in the area to get them to attend the Trump protest.

MoveOn’s communications director confirmed their involvement.

But the organizing didn’t stop there.

Labor unions and the racist group, Black Lives Matter, worked to turn out their people in advance of Trump’s visit.

The result?

Thousands of angry liberals, racists and confused anarchists took to the streets to clash with Donald Trump and 25,000 of his supporters.

The violence caught on camera was a smidgen of what really happened behind the scenes.

Two men, Sergio Giralso and Sohaan Goss, both in their twenties were charged with felony aggravated battery on a police officer. Two others were charged with resisting arrest.

The Chicago police could have arrested hundreds but were reserved in their efforts despite the chaos.

Expect events like this in the general election if Trump secures the Republican Nomination.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel honed on in the growing popularity of AirBNB.

For those unfamiliar with the service, it’s much like Uber in that home owners can rent out their home for a night or more through the AirBNB app or site.

The service is a way for travelers to experience a truly local feel for their host city while staying in bed-and-breakfast like accommodations.

There are hosts in over 30,000 cities around the world.

Chicago offers over 300 AirBNB hosts where average one-night stays run a reasonable $113 per night. Some can be found for as low as $19 per night.

But “Godfather” Rahm wants his money.

The Chicago mayor and former chief of staff for Barack Obama is requiring all AirBNB hosts to register with the city to obtain a license and collect two different taxes for travelers.

For AirBNB hosts who don’t go want to hassle with 17 pages of compliance documents and taxes are faced with fines of no less than $1,500 per offense or six months in jail.

In typical Chicago fashion, the Godfather wants his cut.

As the 2016 elections approach it is time for each of us as gun owners, Second Amendment advocates, freedom lovers, and patriots to prepare the single most effective form of advertising media there is.  The best part is that for all the multimillion dollar media buys the candidates pay for, all the mass emails and websites created, this form of advertising has something the candidates can’t buy at any price. It has millions of outlets, with a reach that is unparalleled in modern advertising.  Even more unique is the fact that we control it, can make it available 24 hours a day, and have the ability to change the message as needed.

It’s called a personal “30 second commercial.” That’s right – we each have the ability to influence those around us by simply stating our informed opinions in as little as 30 seconds.  Whether asked specifically or through the course of normal conversation, we have the power to influence a person’s choice the way no radio or T.V. commercial can.

After all, who are your co-workers, friends or neighbors going to listen to – a radio spot by a candidate “who approves this message,” or a trusted friend co-worker or neighbor who is educated on what I believe to be the threshold question every candidate must answer correctly, before they get one second more of my time?

My personal 30 second commercial focuses on answering the question, “What is the candidate’s views on my civil rights – particularly my Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms?” Certainly there is a better indicator of a person’s character than their views on my right to self-defense, right?  Not to me.  I believe that a politician’s moral compass can be determined by how they reference free men and women the right to defend themselves.  That is the indicator that I believe to be the most telling. Broken down, it speaks volumes.  If a candidate for public office believes depriving a law abiding citizen of their God-given, fundamental rights, based upon the actions of another deranged, mentally ill, or evil human being, is the right thing to do, then that is all I need to know.  What more is there that can possibly justify their decision to leave me helpless to die, by preventable attack?

Consider that for a moment: a person running for political office wants to deprive us, as good law-abiding citizens, not convicted of a felony, of the freedom to defend our gift of life. Over and over again the media bombards us with senseless policies, expounded by progressive anti-gun politicians, to solve the wrong problem.  These progressive anti-gun; anti-civil rights proponents have been missing the real problem for years. After every incident in a “gun free zone” permitting the killing with impunity with no fear of being stopped until the necessity for the coward to commit suicide is created – after another Luby’s Cafeteria (22 dead); VA Tech (32 dead); Aurora, CO (12 dead, 70 injured); Sandy Hook (26 dead) – they still don’t get it.  America doesn’t have a gun problem – we have a mental health problem.

Consider the toll in in Chicago, a city with some of the most stringent anti-gun control laws in the country, on the weekend of September 19, 2015: 8 dead, 45 wounded.  Those are not results of gun problems; that is the result of a societal environment where human life has no value – where a young man proves his life’s worth by taking life.

The anti-gun politicians who push their “common sense” reforms (claiming that if “could just save one life” it would make stripping the rights from the responsible law abiding citizen worth it) refuse to understand is that evil exists, – an evil that isn’t stopped by a “No Guns” sign; an evil that is undaunted by laws that supposedly draws an imaginary line that evil “shall” not cross.   Since Cain murdered Abel, we have known that the only thing that stops evil is the immediate ability to fight back with sufficient force stop evils threat.

That is why, to me, a person’s views on my right to self-defense is the threshold question that must be answered before a candidate gets even one more second of my time.  Whenever I have the opportunity to replay my 30 second commercial to my co-workers, friends or neighbors I will be ready with my commercial based upon the answer to my threshold question.

As Americans, we owe it to each other to replay our commercial whenever and wherever we can.  We must educate ourselves on the issues that matters most to us – to that threshold question.  If you don’t know a national candidate’s views on the threshold question, the NRA Institute for Legislative Action has several great resources to help you with your questions. The NRA-ILA website contains a wealth of information, including news articles, candidates grades and endorsements, and grassroots alerts, just name a few.  Also don’t forget about your state associations – including and other groups in your area – as well as resources like,,, and so many more.

If we as gun owners, Second Amendment advocates, freedom lovers and patriots prepare our own 30 second commercials, by educating ourselves on the candidates based upon that threshold question:  what are their views on my right to self-defense; be prepared to replay it whenever and wherever we can, we can’t lose.

After Hillary Clinton prominently featured a Chicago gay couple in her launch video in April, they invited the candidate to their wedding.

Unfortunately, she didn’t show.

Jared Milrad and Nathan Johnson were married July 19 in Hillary’s hometown of Chicago. Their pending nuptials were heavily featured in Hillary Clinton’s launch video, which highlighted minorities and non-traditional couples. Even though the candidate didn’t actually come out in support of gay marriage until 2013, long after public support and the rest of the Democratic Party had begun to “evolve.”

“I’m getting married this summer to someone I really care about,” Milrad said about Johnson, during the video.

Shortly after the launch, Milrad took to Twitter to publicly invite Clinton to their wedding.

“Thanks for inviting us to your big day @HillaryClinton. We’re returning the favor & inviting you to ours. #wedding.”

He followed it up with an invite for, presumably, Hillary’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, too: “BTW @HillaryClinton, feel free to bring a +1. #wedding #LGBT.”

Clinton’s campaign staff returned the invite with a tepid response, apparently saying, “We’ll see.”

Milrad and Johnson were, obviously, big supporters of Hillary Clinton. Milrad gushed about her leadership abilities after he and his now-husband were featured in the video.

Hillary’s choice to feature non-traditional couples “demonstrates Secretary Clinton’s commitment to LGBT equality and the type of inclusive leader she would be as president,” Milrad explained in April, during an interview with the Washington Blade.

After their snub, they remain firmly on team Hillary.

“She rightfully pointed out that if she came to the wedding, it might distract from our special day, so we understand she supports us,” Milrad explained.

Despite ducking out of their wedding, Clinton sent the couple a letter to congratulate them. Her campaign supplied no reason why she would not attend the wedding, aside from what Milrad claims.

As the mainstream media continues to ask Republican presidential candidates whether or not they’d attend a gay wedding, it looks like they won’t have to ask Hillary Clinton: the answer appears to be no, even if she prominently featured the couple in her campaign launch.

In what many on the Left are describing as an epic act of betrayal, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced this week that he is going to layoff 1,400 Chicago public school teachers and staff to help finance a public employee pension debt of $634 million.

The layoffs will free up $200 million to pay the city’s upcoming pension payment must be made by Chicago Public Schools by Illinois law. The rest of the pension payment will come from more borrowing by a school district already drowning in $1.1 billion of debt.

As expected, Mayor Emanuel is blaming the situation on the rest of Illinois for not paying more of the cost of keeping Chicago’s promises to the city’s powerful teacher unions.

“You negotiate with your teachers in Aurora… Then we get to pay for it,” Emanuel said at a press conference. He said the state should change its funding formula so “You… come to the table and start paying your share for what you negotiated.”

Chicago’s public schools have been the object of repeated mass layoffs in the past thanks, in part, to overstaffing and the city’s budget situation which remains in a constant state of crisis. Previously, about 1,100 employees were laid off in 2014 and over 3,000 lost their jobs in 2013.

Still, the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) said in a statement that they were totally “blindsided” by the mass firing. According to Karen Lewis, president of the CTU:

“We are blindsided by reports that the district intends to lay off 1,400 public school educators, given that we just met with them yesterday and there was no mention of this action. These layoffs prove that the Board never intended to make the pension payment in good faith and that they are using this to justify more attacks on our classrooms”

“Putting 1,400 people out of work is no way to balance a budget and resource our schools”… “These cuts are a result of a history of poor fiscal management by the Board of Education. Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s handpicked board has led this district over a financial cliff.

“We are outraged at this deceptive action that only furthers the distrust teachers, parents and students have with the Board…” “This is retaliatory and unnecessary because (the mayor) refuses to seek revenue options (more taxes) to stabilize CPS.”

Many are asking angry educators to look at the pension benefits and healthcare costs of retired teachers. Thousands of retired Illinois teachers receive six-figure pensions and the average retiree receives more in pension payments than they paid into the pension program.

Most teachers retire at age 59 or younger and, on average, receive lifetime pension benefits in excess of $2 million – not including a fixed annual 3 percent cost of living adjustment.

Chicago teachers defend their high pensions by pointing out that they are ineligible for Social Security (forgetting to say that they paid no payroll taxes into the Social Security trust fund).

In 2013, Illinois lawmakers passed a pension reform bill that tried to scale back benefits to contain costs, but CTU and other labor groups sued. The CTU may have painted itself into a box when, in May, a state judge ruled that, by law, Illinois could not cut payments to the pension fund.

Many argue that this is a perfect example of big government liberals and greedy union bosses making promises to past employees the future employees can’t keep – a situation that leaves students in understaffed, overcrowded and failing schools holding the bag.



When Comey, the director of the FBI decided not to charge Hillary Clinton, it looks like it had more to do with money than...
