Illinois population drops by more than 45,000, per latest Census report

Illinois had the largest population decline in the nation in 2018, the continuation of a years-long retreat from the state, according to figures from U.S. Census Bureau released Wednesday.

Census numbers show 114,154 people moved out of Illinois in the 12 months ending in July. In total, Illinois’ population shrank to 12,741,080, a total population loss of 45,116 from last year. This marks the fifth consecutive year of total population loss for the state and the largest drop in population in more than a decade....

As a result of the population loss, Illinois is on track to lose at least one member of Congress after the apportionment process in 2021. This, accompanied with fewer electoral votes in presidential elections, leaves Illinois with a diminished voice in federal matters.

Media are the new puritans—but without an absolute North Star. Very dangerous.

Victor Davis Hanson: We Are Witnessing a Soft Coup of the Trump Administration WATCH

Victor Davis Hanson: This Mueller investigation that we have is not in isolation. We had, remember, from the day Trump was elected we were told the election machines were flawed, we were going to sue. And then there was a group, remember we were told about the Electoral College, and we were told we had to overturn the electors. And then we went to the 25th Amendment that Trump was unbalanced. And that didn’t work. And then we went to the emoluments clause, he profited even though his businesses had lost a billion dollars. And then we’ve gone to Mueller. And so there’s a slow motion if you will, I don’t want to be too psychodramatic like MSNBC gets. But there is sort of a slow motion coup to overturn the elections.

...I had high hopes for Kamala Harris, but she missed a huge opportunity to play a moderating, statesmanlike role and has already imprinted an image of herself as a ruthless inquisitor that will make it hard for her to pull voters across party lines.

Screechy Elizabeth Warren has never had a snowball’s chance in hell to appeal beyond upper-middle-class professionals of her glossy stripe. Kirsten Gillibrand is a wobbly mediocrity. Cory Booker has all the gravitas of a cork. Andrew Cuomo is a yapping puppy with a long, muddy bullyboy tail. Both Bernie Sanders (for whom I voted in the 2016 primaries) and Joe Biden (who would have won the election had Obama not cut him off at the knees) are way too old and creaky....

Arizona Governor Ducey Appoints Martha McSally to Fill McCain's Senate Term…

“All her life, Martha has put service first — leading in the toughest of fights and at the toughest of times. She served 26 years in the military; deployed six times to the Middle East and Afghanistan; was the first woman to fly in combat and command a fighter squadron in combat; and she’s represented Southern Arizona in Congress for the past four years. With her experience and long record of service, Martha is uniquely qualified to step up and fight for Arizona’s interests in the U.S. Senate. I thank her for taking on this significant responsibility and look forward to working with her and Senator-Elect Sinema to get positive things done.” ~ Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey.

"We don't laugh together anymore, and that's not good."

(Mark) Rush and I were talking over dinner at the Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant that made headlines earlier this year for its unfortunate decision to refuse service to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Rush struggled to reconcile the idea that it had been that long since he sat in a theater and laughed, so he asked the waiter, hoping that would prompt him to remember a recent movie he found uproariously funny. Rush also asked the manager, and finally, the three young sous-chefs in the kitchen.

He said: "Same answers: 'Blazing Saddles,' 'Caddyshack.' The most recent ones they said were 'Talladega Nights,' 'Tropic Thunder' and 'The Hangover.' Even the last three are over 10 years old."

He added: "We don't laugh together anymore, and that's not good. One of the great attributes of a good comedy is that it can take us away from the day-to-day dramas of life but can also make us laugh at those same day-to-day dramas from a different perspective." ...

At some point this madness has to end... Get a bloody grip.
