Gangster Disciple calls out Rahm, Jesse Jackson, on Chicago violence

Gangster Disciple calls out Rahm, Jesse Jackson, on Chicago violence

A former high-ranking member of “Gangster Disciples” street gang, “Noonie G,” has called out the Chicago machine for failing to address the root causes of Chicago violence: the illegal drug trade. Speaking to Breitbart’s Rebel Pundit, he referred to people like Jesse Jackson, Jr., and Al Sharpton as “sympathy pimps,” unleashing a scathing attack on the players who enable the violence to continue–and shield the public from a true understanding of what’s going on:

The nation has had its eyes fixated on Chicago as one of the epicenters of violence on its streets. There has not been satisfactory reporting by the local media, holding either police chief Garry McCarthy or Mayor Emanuel accountable for explaining the horrific violence and addressing its causes. It seems easy enough for local reporters to describe the violence as “gang-related” or just another “drive-by shooting” and leave it at that. But as Noonie G. points out, when do these people enter the real epicenters of violence other than for a quick report or press conference?

It’s incumbent on those of us with the good fortune not to fear for our children’s lives when they set out for school each morning to demand answers for our fellow American citizens who do live in such circumstances. If Noonie G. is correct, and it is the drug cartels that are fueling much of the violence–and not simply gang rivalries–then we must ask: who is profiting off this illegal drug trade?

Noonie G. seems to imply that, from his perspective, it’s more than the cartels who profit. That in order for their trade to flourish there must be some level of complicity among what he refers to as “the powers that be.”

As always, good stuff from Rebel Pundit. The Hispanic gangs which help truck in the drugs, use the black gangs for local distribution and let them kill one another. There aren’t many Hispanic gang killings because it’s bad for business.

    Noonie-G sounds like one of those “racist Tea Party” dudes.

    When do we send in a Special Forces A-Team, set up a compound and start training the indigenous locals to defend themselves? Start patrolling the local jungles and open areas with local tribesman who know the local 411.

    Hell, it worked in Iraq, why not Sh!tcago? But can you imagine the fu*ked-up ROE’s?

    Disclaimer: This post is largely hyperbole, meant to underscore the overall severity of the problem. The poster knows that sending US military to occupy and patrol urban areas is prohibited, except under martial law.

    This must be driven by the evil oil companies, all of whom are excess-profiting from all of the trafficking.

My favorite conspiracy theory involves the Mexican Cartels and the Chicago political machines – including but not limited to:
Eric Holder’s Fast & Furious
Hillary Clinton’s State Department Direct Commercial Sales (
Toss in the murders of Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata
Obama’s daughters vacationing deep in Zetas Cartel territory
Preferential treatment of illegal aliens – which provides cover for the movements of drugs and weapons
And pretty much every false statement out of Napalitano’s mouth regarding the safety and security of the borders

We already know that many of our local Democrat Party people have been bankrolled by Cartel money for years:

Mexican cartels aren’t just your quaint Raul and Pedro operations, these dealers are connected to ruthless Hezbollah and Chechens and they are selling more than just meth, cocaine and heroin. Nowadays, Russian designer drugs are also in the offering. They are also trafficking women and children.

The signature behaviors MO of these Islamic cartels (beheadings, unspeakably inhumane treatment of women and children) are becoming more and more frequent.

The real problem is that the Chicago Police Department is seriously undermanned. Very few new police have been hired for several years, while thousands of veteran cops have retired. This has had effects inside the Department. No new Detectives have been added in five years.

There are also shortages of evidence technicians and other specialists.

One predictable result is that the “clearance rate” on homicides has dropped to less than 25%.

The manpower shortages have resulted in patrol beats going unwatched and many patrol cars operating “99” – with only one officer.

The gangbangers thus feel less (and are less) restrained. They feel free to commit violence with little chance of consequences – and they do.

Mayor Emanuel has acknowledged some of this, and promised “more cops on the street”, but his actual response is pathetically small – a few hundred highly publicized recruits, who are already being used in potentially dangerous situations, despite not even having finished training.

Any criticism is answered with the excuse that the city doesn’t have money for more (or even to meet its existing pension obligations to retired police).

Meanwhile, the city has just awarded $55M for a new basketball arena for De Paul University.

The Obama administration allows this filth to invade our country, by refusing to enforce our borders. They also allow these foreign criminals to travel freely within the U.S., by refusing to enforce immigration and other laws against illegal aliens. Illegal aliens in AZ (where I live) routinely assault LE officers, and the Obama administration refuses to take any action — no arrests, no deportations, nothing. The cartels have free reign, because the Obama administration gives it to them.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Observer. | October 15, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Well, all that might change, now. When foreign criminal enterprises start competing with, and supplanting, local criminal enterprises, such as The City of Chicago, Cook County, The Chicago Police Union, SEIU, ACORN and the AFL-CIO, look for the hammer to come screaming down on the vatos!

    One thing you don’t do to Organized Crime & Democratic Machines is steal from them.

      I read an article – probably back in 2009 – about the Obama campaign. One thing just stuck out when interviewing one of the people who worked on strategy. He had worked on other campaigns and knew that any strategy was always dependent on the budgets and funding sources available. When he worked on Obama’s campaign, he noticed right away that money was never a concern. There was always money to pay for any kind of extravagant event or ground operation they wanted to put on.

      The language he used to describe their access to cash reminded me very much of descriptions of busts at stash houses. Frequently, so much money is collected, that it’s impossible to launder it all and it ends up being stacked up in a room.

      Can you think of a better way to launder drug money than through a political campaign?

      Uncle Samuel in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | October 15, 2013 at 3:08 pm

      Steal from them? No, the cartels make the politicians rich, Rich, RICH – pay the cost of running for office and then some…an under the table retirement fund.

    I say again: obama hates America and Americans.

The drug problem in Chicago or anywhere else for that matter is the ind product of demand. Curtail the demand, and the suppliers will dry up.

What is so hard to understand about that?

Of course if the root cause of all of this were to be researched, it would turn up the decline in family values, increased dependence on the government, the almost total lack of personal responsibility and a host of other causes.

What this country needs is a healthy dose of tough love…

“Sympathy pimps.” I like it, although I prefer to call Jackson and Sharpton “pity whores.”

    2nd Ammendment Mother in reply to CrustyB. | October 15, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    I prefer “grievance whores”…. since usually the more you know about their gambits for attention, the more likely that the situation was a foreseeable outcome of chosen behaviors and less to do with unfortunate happenstance.

How many fast & furious guns are in Chicago?

Noonie G., Esquire, suggests that Mexican cartels operate with impunity in Chicago because the ‘powers that be’ allow it, hinting at something nefarious.

Drug mob pay-offs of city officials? In CHICAGO? C’mon!

Make drugs legal and available same as liquor and tobacco, and that will end the drug market and the drug violence.

    It may succeed to reduce violence, but it will not end the illicit drug market. Also, the consumption of psychotropic drugs is not equivalent to consumption of fermented products and tobacco.

    That said, the war on drugs is futile unless the underlying causes for consumption and distribution are addressed.

Consumption of psychotropic drugs is a symptom. There is an underlying cause for people to desire a temporary departure from reality.

The corruption and violence which stems from the drug trade is a symptom. There is an underlying cause for people to desire instant or immediate gratification. The underlying cause for them to escape accountability is dissociation of risk.

Anyway, this epiphany represents positive progress, but only partially address the issue.

As for Jackson, Sharpton, et al, their exposure is trending.

    The underlying need for a temporary departure from reality is caused by the environment being contaminated with Democrats. Soul eating Democrats. World War Z? We’re in it, baby!

I’ve been treating addicts and alcoholics for just under 30 years. I am myself a recovering alcoholic and addict.

Drug and alcohol use is predicated on the way that chemicals allow one to control how one feels, a very, very powerful thing. When young, they are typically used to get high, of course, to party, and most folks get through this without problems. Some use alcohol and/or drugs to ameliorate emotional distress – called ‘self-medicators’. Most recreational users grow up and away from the practice as the responsibilities of work and family take over. Some don’t.

For a subset, perhaps 10% of users, something different occurs – they transit from recreational use to abuse levels and eventually to addicted levels, a slow slide that is difficult to notice from week to week or month to month, but at some point one realizes he or she is addicted, and by definition and typically after many failed attempts, it is too late to quit on pure will power, without help, as others can and have. “I got so tired of quitting and relapsing, I finally quit quitting,” is a common experience heard from recovering people looking back on it.

These folks -the addicted – become the steady part of the market for illicit drugs, but the bulk of the market is the transitory, constantly changing and aging out rec users who eventually back away. This group is always far larger in numbers. Young partiers playing with fire, later to grow up and leave it behind. You can treat the addicted, but the youthful, non-addicted partiers have proved resilient to prevention models.

As for crime, it comes from three directions:

(1) The addicted users can pay for drugs out of their pay checks only for so long, and the addicted life style causes job loss anyway. At that point you start pawning everything you own to pay for drugs you must have. The compulsion is undeniable. Once they have spent all their own assets, they steal from family and friends because they have access to the pawnable stuff and there’s a chance that, if caught, you can talk family and friends out of prosecuting you. Eventually, you run out of family and friends who’ll tolerate your presence, and now you have to hustle to stay high – you try to deal, but use up your won stash, typically fronted by a bigger dealer, and that can get you hurt. You steal, scam, burglarize and worse to get drug money. That’s one source of drug-related crime.

(2) The criminal hierarchy, organization of dealers, distributors, etc. This group typically does not restrict itself to drug sales and distribution. Stolen guns are big money. Running drug-addicted prostitutes is big money. Running shoplifting, burglary, and auto theft crews are big money. All of it secondary and tertiary to drug sales and distribution.

(3) Corrupt law enforcement, judicial, and other government officials. There’s more than one way to raise campaign money, live big, and set up your retirement, eh? Without these scumbags, the whole system breaks down.

Point, vis-a-vis this article: If you see a town racked by gang and drug violence, I flat guarantee you there is rampant corruption, pay-offs of local politicians, officials, law enforcement, etc. It cannot flourish and spread without protection from bought-off authorities.

Eliminating demand makes logical sense, but lots of ideas make logical sense in the laboratory of thought only to prove worthless in the field. The bulk of the market is transitory recreational users who play with drugs from ages, oh, 16-25 or so, only to drift away from it as they grow up and assume adult responsibilities. 90% of them never experience any trouble with it, beyond hangovers and the occasional minor offense for possession, paraphernalia, etc. , if that. They are told by well-intended but hyoerbolic prevention programs that if they use drugs they’ll die or go to prison, and perhaps they might, but for 90% nothing bad happens and they ignore the message.

My prevention approach is different, though I am regularly castigated for it in professional circles. I tell kids that using drugs is like playing Russian Roulette, that 90% of them will probably be fine, but 10% will not – and there’s no way to tell in advance who will be among the damned & doomed 10%. I get good response from this approach, but it falls on deaf ears among the politicals who set the agenda and finance the programs. Blasphemy! You’re practically permitting drug use! As if it isn’t already occurring.

(Henry rolls up speech, slaps it under one arm, and stomps away from the podium to the standing O roars of the approving, adoring crowd).

I think everyone here has hit the high points already. This is the city of Al Capone, which had such a corrupt govt that the feds had to intervene. It is also the city of machine politics that gave us two Mayor Daleys, and now the fixer, Rohm Emmanuel. Back in college, 40+ years ago! heard a lot about the corruption there then! where city and state services required bribes, like leaving a $20 on the seat to pass the driving test for a license. Unfortunately, the City that Works doesn’t any more I think maybe because the level of corruption has gotten so bad that it no longer can be ignored. Just another example of the failure of the progressive social model breaking down, with not enough money left after paying everyone off, and everyone taking their rakes and bribes,, to cover basic government services any more.

The one place where I would quibble with this person is that the basic problem is not the drugs and violence, but the breakdown of the nuclear family, aided and abetted by progressive policies. As a result, young males in the lower classes are not adequately socialized, first by a lack of a father, and later by a lack of marriage and their own fatherhood
