Toni Preckwinkle President
Toni Preckwinkle Cook County Board President

All of the foes are united and have pledged their support as is traditionally done after the election.  However, don’t think that it’s all love and kisses. Some campaign rhetoric dug deep into the hearts of some politicians, some things that will not be forgotten or forgiven. Ima wonders how County Board President Preckwinkle is going to rule with her mandate. Hear tell the Mare is looking to see what she will be bargaining for and he’s quaking in his boots. The tall one has a real mean streak most politicians are whispering and they are in no way ready to tangle with her. She showed that mean streak when she used her money, Pritzker’s money and everybody’s else money to defeat up and coming Richard Boykin. Folks in the know said Boykin was the only one who could have defeated her when she was weakened with the soda tax and when he backed off her fangs came out and she was focused on his defeat. I don’t know if anybody is counting but she is in control of most of the county offices including the States Attorney’s office. Oh well, there goes Black hope!!

Yolanda Renee King

People in the hood are marveling that the youngest King star is Yolanda Renee King, the nine- year-old daughter of Martin Luther King III, who was a highlight at the “March for Our Lives” in Washington, D.C. a couple of weeks back. While the King children have enjoyed some notoriety as the children of Dr. M.L. King Jr., it has been mostly negative because of their differences about the King Estate, maybe this bright light can be the one to carry on the great legacy of Dr. King. The conversation grew louder this week when the 50th year of Dr. King’s death in Memphis was commemorated. P.S. where was Dexter at the commemoration? Just asking!!!



President Trump continues to drain the swamp as he promised during his campaign for President. The only thing different is the swamp rats that are jumping out of the swamp are his appointees to his cabinet. The American public is asking that the last one out of the White House should turn out the light. If that doesn’t happen soon, Ima wants to start a fund-me campaign to have the utilities disconnected. Oh, by the way bets are being taken on how long Dr. Ben Carson will last?? Call Ima to place your bets!!!

Maze Jackson

The general election hasn’t taken place yet and already the Mayor’s race has three candidates and it doesn’t include the incumbent, Twinkle Toes. McCarthy, Vallas and Wilson are already declared, but wait before you vote because deals will be made, stalking horses will be eliminated and sell outs’ bank accounts will be bigger. Dorothy Brown is still standing on the sidelines or maybe, just maybe she is waiting for things to thin out. Maze Jackson will be angling how he will get paid as usual, but if you step back it just might be fun to watch. Ima done already ordered her white lightnin’ and hog maws.
