Chance the Rapper Buys Big Chicago Website, Has a Message for Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Published

on

Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, otherwise known as Chance the Rapper, announced this week that he bought a big Chicago website and then delivered a message to Mayor Rahm Emanuel that he’s not at all going to like: He asked him to resign.

The website purchased by Bennett covers politics, news, and culture for the city. The acquisition of the site was announced in a unique way, via a song release.

Here are the details.

Chicagoist.com has not been active since November 2, “when owner Joe Ricketts, the billionaire founder of TD Ameritrade and patriarch of the family that owns the Chicago Cubs, shut down the site along with Gothamist, DNAinfo and others,” the Chicago Tribune reported.

I’m extremely excited to be continuing the work of the Chicagoist, an integral local platform for Chicago news, events and entertainment,” Bennett said. “I look forward to relaunching it and bringing the people of Chicago an independent media outlet focused on amplifying diverse voices and content.”

Bennett has been a big player in Chicago. The 25-year-old who grew up on the South Side supports arts education in Chicago public schools and has vocally opposed City Hall’s plans for a West Side police training academy.

In his new song, Bennett “took a swipe at Emanuel over a proposed program, costing $95 million, to train police officers after the U.S. Justice Department determined that Chicago cops used excessive force against black residents, according to Reason Magazine,” Fox New reported.

“And Rahm you done I’m expectin’ resignation/An open investigation on all of these paid vacations for murderers,” Bennett sings.

“Emanuel indicated that [he] may not be the fan of the rapper, walking out of Chance’s speech to the city council last year in November, in which the rapper suggested instead using the money to fund public schools and mental health programs,” Fox reported.

This isn’t the first time Chance has managed to stir the pot politically speaking, having tweeted out back in April that “black people don’t have to be democrats.”

As you can imagine, that didn’t sit too well with the majority of folks in our liberal brainwashed culture, but that doesn’t make the statement any less true.

Now, this tweet doesn’t mean he’s a conservative. It just means he’s open to the fact people need to think for themselves, to do diligent research and discover the values they hold dear to and express those without worrying about their race and political affiliation.

It’ll be interesting to see how Chance matures in the coming years and whether or not he will lean more to the right as time marches on.

Biden To Create Court Reform Commission Featuring Options That Go ‘Well Beyond’ Court Packing

Published

on

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden released a video clip on Thursday morning that revealed he will create a national commission to help reform the current court system, which no doubt is a response to President Trump nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court during an election year. The statement delivered by the former vice president comes after he has repeatedly refused to answer questions about his position concerning court packing. A lot of folks on the left support this measure as a way to stack the bench with liberal judges so they can pretty much have free reign. via Daily Wire: “If elected, what I will do is I’ll put together a national commission of bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative,” Biden told CBS News. “And I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it’s getting out of whack, the way in which it’s being handled. And it’s not about court packing. There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’d look to see what recommendations that commission might make.” https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1319247217337749508 Biden’s statement comes as he has refused to state whether he supports packing the courts and has stated that voters do not deserve to know if he will do so. Top Democrats such as Sen. Mazie Hirono (HI) have stated that court packing is an option when it comes to what Democrats claim is “court reform.” CBS News asked the former vice president if this proposed national commission would “study this issue about whether to pack the court.” Biden responded by saying, “No, whether — there’s a number of alternatives that are — go well beyond packing.” He was then asked if this was…

Hunter Biden’s Business Partner Labels Email ‘Genuine,” Says Hunter Sought Advice From Father On Deals

Published

on

One of the individuals who is listed as a recipient of an email that was published as part of a report by the NY Post detailing some kind of business arrangement with a company from China and members of the Biden family, Tony Bobulinski, has come forward and confirmed the email is “genuine” then elaborated on the Bidens’ role in this particular deal. Included in this email message is a note saying that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” There’s also mention of some kind of equity split with “H” getting “20” and “10 held by H for the big guy.” There are no further details explaining the meaning of these references. Here’s more from Fox News: “The reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden,” Bobulinski said in a statement to Fox News. Bobulinski said he is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he explained “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.” He said he was brought on as CEO by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar, who was listed as the sender of the email. Bobulinski went on to say he does not believe Joe Biden’s past claim that he and Hunter did not discuss his son Hunter’s business, claiming that Hunter “frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals.” “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line,” Bobulinski told Fox News. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign…
