Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames shootings on guns from states with “virtually no gun control”

Funny how you never hear about the regular occurence of double-digit, weekend shootings/murders from cities in the states of Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa. You’d think those states with “virtually no gun control laws” would have a higher amount of shootings than the strict, gun-controlled city of Chiraq.

This is what NYC looks like under de Blasio’s watch: Father & daughter viciously attacked by mob

When you have demorat “leaders” who support lawlessness, defunding the police and “criminal justice reform,” you can expect no consequences for illegal behaviors such as the following:

Details about this incident:

“The NYPD released a shocking video Thursday showing the moment a father and daughter were set upon by a violent mob in a store in upper Manhattan.

Victor Martinez Medina, 41, a Mexican immigrant who moved to New York 15 years ago, was knocked out cold by the group who were targeting his 22-year-old daughter.

His wife Rosa Santo, 39, watched the savage beating in horror from outside the store before one of the mob stole her phone when she called 911.

Police have identified three of the suspects in the vicious one-sided attack that allegedly began because of ongoing tensions between Medina’s daughter and another woman in the neighborhood.”

Read the whole story here.

As I have previously said, everyone living in the lawlessness, demorat-run cities are going to have to step up their situational awareness skills.

You don’t say: Residents fleeing liberal utopia of Seattle

The once-beautiful, demorat-run city of Seattle has turned into a nightmare.

You’ve got a serious homeless problem. Even a BILLION taxpayer dollars isn’t enough to solve that problem.

You’ve got a serious problem with repeat criminal offenders. Due to the progressive “criminal justice reform” agenda, there are many, many repeat offenders who are never properly punished.

Then you’ve got ANTIFA/BLM/demorat thugs taking over the city streets and rioting, looting and burning the city down. And the elected politicians cave to their demands.

So why would any reasonable, taxpaying-citizen want to remain in this liberal utopia? It appears that many residents have had enough and are heading out.

KOMO News reports that more Seattle-area residents selling their homes and fleeing the city. This is based on a Redfin report which states that the number of home sellers looking to leave the Seattle metro area has jumped to 13.7%, compared with 11.2% at the same time last year.

Also notable? The net outflow of homeowners from Seattle has soared from 363 in the second quarter of last year to 6,007 in the second quarter of this year – a jump of more than 1,500%.

Redfin claims that the reasons people are leaving are because of the Wuhan virus, to move closer to family, flexible remote work which means people don’t “have to live in this area,” and low mortgage rates.

Gee, ‘ya think the crazy violence and lack of law and order might have something to do with it?

Sunday Devotional: Ask for a heart that is wise and understanding

1 Kings 3:5, 7-12

The LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream at night.
God said, “Ask something of me and I will give it to you.”
Solomon answered:
“O LORD, my God, you have made me, your servant, king
to succeed my father David;
but I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act.
I serve you in the midst of the people whom you have chosen,
a people so vast that it cannot be numbered or counted.
Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart
to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong.
For who is able to govern this vast people of yours?”

The LORD was pleased that Solomon made this request.
So God said to him:
“Because you have asked for this—
not for a long life for yourself,
nor for riches,
nor for the life of your enemies,
but for understanding so that you may know what is right—
I do as you requested.
I give you a heart so wise and understanding
that there has never been anyone like you up to now,
and after you there will come no one to equal you.”

Pray for our supposed political leaders, so many of whom show no understanding of right from wrong, and have abandoned the citizens of their cities and states to the ravage, rampage and violence to life and property by criminals and BLM-Antifa mobs. See:

Pray for President Trump, who relentlessly and unceasingly has been, and continues to be, attacked and besieged since even before he took office. Pray that God lifts his spirit, keeps him healthy, gives him strength and fortitude, and protects him from all evil and harm.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

This is what Portland looks like under Mayor Wheeler’s watch: Man attacks woman with handsaw, arrest interrupted by agitators

When leadership, such as that seen under Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, allows and encourages lawlessness then you can expect the mob rage to act.

Solely based on this perp’s skin color, agitators attempted to block his arrest. Bet they didn’t even know he attempted to harm two women with a handsaw. That doesn’t matter. The narrative must be followed. Watch:

The perp was arrested and, fortunately, is still being held in jail (for now).

If you have any plans to visit Portland, I’d recommend you stay far, far away.

Seattle police chief to residents and business owners: You’re on your own against violent protesters

Seattle’s Chief of Police Carmen Best has penned a letter to the city’s residents and business owners, informing them that they’re on their own against this Sunday’s anticipate violent protests because her hands are tied by the City Council.

Dated yesterday, July 24, 2020, the letter reads as follows (source: The Magazine):

July 24, 2020

Dear Business Owner and/or Resident:

Please know that the Seattle Police Department is committed to addressing life safety incidents and calls for service, and responding to ongoing demonstrations and unrest in the city.

Please also know that the City Council Ordinance 119805 Crowd Control Tool goes into effect this weekend on Sunday, July 26, 2020. This ordinance bans Seattle police officers the use of less lethal tools, including pepper spray that is commonly used to disperse crowds that have turned violent. Simply put, the legislation gives officers NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd.

It is important to bring to your attention that yesterday, I sent the City Council a letter ensuring them as the Chief of Police, I have done my due diligence of informing them numerous times of the foreseeable impact of this ordinance on upcoming events. The letter is attached for your reference.

For these reasons, Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstration this weekend — as I will never ask our officers to risk their personal safety to protect property without the tools to do so in a safe way.

Sincerely,

Carmen Best
Chief of Police

Here’s a screenshot of the letter.

And here’s Police Chief Best’s July 23 letter to the Seattle City Council (source: Seattle.gov):

Letter to City Council Regarding Council Ordinance 119805 – Crowd Control Tools

July 23, 2020
Lorena González, President and Lisa Herbold, Public Safety Chair
Seattle City Council, City Hall
600 Fourth Ave, 2nd Floor
Seattle, WA 98104

Re: City Council Ordinance 119805 – Crowd Control Tools

Dear President González, Chairwoman Herbold, and Seattle City Council Members:

SPD has confirmed with the City Attorney’s Office that the City Council ordinance banning the use of less lethal tools – including pepper spray – commonly used to disperse crowds that have turned violent, will go into effect this weekend as written.

I am sending this notification for the purpose of ensuring I have done my due diligence of informing Council of the foreseeable impact of this ordinance on upcoming events.

It is a fact that there are groups and individuals who are intent on destruction in our City. Yes, we also have seen weeks of peaceful demonstrations, but two recent events (Sunday, July 19th and Wednesday, July 22nd) have included wide-scale property destruction and attacks on officers, injuring more than a dozen, some significantly.

This weekend we know that several events are planned across the city that will foreseeably involve many of the same violent actors from recent days. There is no reason not to assume we will continue to experience property destruction, arson, looting, and attempts to injure additional officers throughout the weekend and beyond.

With this Council ordinance, we hear loudly and clearly that the use of these less-lethal tools by SPD officers to disperse crowds that have turned violent have been completely banned by City Council.

Under these circumstances, as created by Council, we cannot manage demonstrations as we have in the past. If I am not allowed to lawfully equip officers with the tools they have been trained to use to protect the community and themselves, it would be reckless to have them confront this level of violence under the current legal restrictions imposed by Council.

Some have asked why officers are not arresting those engaging in criminal behavior, as officers do every day, and as they have in recent protests. If it is safe to do so, and even when it places their lives in danger, our officers always directly address criminal behavior. They do this, however, when they know they have the tools shown to allow the safe use of their policing powers. This Council ordinance denies them access to these tools that have been an essential part of their court-approved tactics.

We have clear, court-mandated procedures for arresting individuals, grounded in the principles of deescalation. SPD’s de-escalation principles are premised on the expectation, consistent with policy and best practices, that officers have the full array of approved tools. In large crowds, there is no safe way for officers to effect arrests when their colleagues do not have the tools necessary to protect them.

As City Council’s legislation goes into effect, it will create even more dangerous circumstances for our officers to intervene using what they have left – riot shields and riot batons.

For these reasons, SPD will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend. The Council legislation gives officers no ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd. Allowing this behavior deeply troubles me, but I am duty-bound to follow the Council legislation once it is in effect. If the Council is prepared to suggest a different response or interpretation of the legislation, I stand ready to receive it.

Additionally, while the Ordinance by title suggests a limitation to crowd management purposes, the language of the Ordinance, in its blanket prohibition on the procurement and ownership of such tools, effectively eliminates these tools as available less-lethal options across the board. The bill clearly bans OC spray at any rally, demonstration or other event, despite if it turns violent.

Further, while we recognize a limited exception for the targeted use of OC spray, the exception does not realistically allow for deployment in such a manner that ensures the aerosol does not disperse onto anyone other than the intended subject. For these reasons, officers who typically deploy with OC as one of their standard less-lethal options will no longer be carrying this tool.

We continue to assess the impact of the prohibition on the procurement, ownership, and use of these tools on SWAT operations.

I believe Council can lead on de-escalation at each of these events through their voice and presence encouraging peaceful demonstrations. It remains my deep hope that once OPA and the OIG have had the opportunity to complete the analysis tasked to them, Council will engage productively with SPD and
its accountability partners to forge a meaningful path forward that provides for public safety in these unprecedented times.

Sincerely,

Carmen Best

Seattle’s businesses are boarding up in preparation for Sunday’s “protest”:

If I were a resident or business owner in Seattle, I would inform the City Council that I will no longer pay my property taxes, which fund the Seattle Police Department and pay the salaries of Seattle’s CRIMINAL City Council.

Just as BLM thugs vandalized the home of radical-Left Oakland, CA mayor Libby Schaaf last Tuesday, July 21, 2020, resulting in Schaaf now calling the protesters “terrorists,” Seattle protesters really should go to the homes of the Seattle City Council members to give them a taste of what the residents and business owners have to endure.

Update (July 26, 2020):

In response to a request for an injunction by the U.S. Department of Justice, a federal judge issued a ruling late Friday night blocking the implementation of a law passed by the Seattle City Council last month that was set to go in force this weekend that prohibits police from using most non-lethal crowd control tools.

Child sex-trafficking: The curious phenomenon of grossly overpriced items for sale online

The Legal Dictionary defines “pedophilia” as “an obsession with children as sex objects. Overt acts, including taking sexual explicit photographs, molesting children, and exposing one’s genitalia to children are all crimes.

Acts of pedophilia are crimes. So it stands to reason that pedophiles conceal their activities by using symbols and code-words to communicate each other.

According to the FBI, below are the symbols pedophiles use:

Law enforcement authorities and online Urban Dictionary-like resources have identified the words in the Podesta emails, such as “pizza”, “hotdogs”, “cheese”, “sauce”, “pasta”, “handkerchief” and “map”, as code words for child sex trafficking. Writing in code provides pedophiles a cover story in the event their communications, such as the Podesta emails, are discovered. (For more pedophile code-words, see “Pizzagate: The Podesta ‘pizza’ emails“)

But how do peodphiles procure their child-victims?

As retail sales have moved from brick-and-mortar stores to the Internet, so are sales and purchases of children. But the online sale of children to pedophiles, of course, cannot be overt. Just as pedophiles communicate with each other via symbols and code-words, the online sales must also be conducted in such a manner that only pedophiles know that the “merchandise” they’re buying are children, instead of a lamp, a sofa, or some other innocuous item.

Of late, alert netizens have noticed a curious phenomenon of GROSSLY overpriced merchandise on sale on certain websites, beginning with a nondescript 66.1″ convertible sofa on sale on Wayfair — a Boston-based e-commerce company that sells furniture and home-goods — for the ridiculous price of more than $18,000.

It is noted that the sofa’s strange price of $18,3003248256 is exactly the coordinates of Little Saint James, the Caribbean island owned by the late convicted-pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Some netizens, however, point out that the image of the convertible sofa is a photoshop — that someone had altered the price of the sofa. Tweeter @Missterr123 shows how it is done.

The problem is that netizens also found other GROSSLY overpriced items on Wayfair, including a modular sectional sofa for $42,234 (original price), storage cabinets for over $12,000 each, a show curtain for $9.999, a kitchen faucet for $9,999, and a pillow for $10,098.


Netizens also note this description of nursery furniture on Wayfair:

All of which prompted this “debunking” by Amit Sharma of The Courier Daily:

This July some social media users from Reddit and Twitter put allegations of child trafficking on the [Wayfair] company…without any proof or reports from the concerned authorities like police, finance, and deep investigations. They only considered the fact that the products are overly priced than other similar items….

Well, the images shared on social media with high prices are real. But it shouldn’t be the sole reason to link it with child trafficking. Without any police or other investigation reports, it’s illogical to say these things on the internet.

When we dive more deeply into the incident, Wayfair is among the large businesses of the country and why would they use their official website to do such as big crime publically? Apart from this, child trafficking is a big punishable offense, the people who do these things never want to do it on a platform where they can be easily tracked.

Then why these cabinets are listing with a high price of more than $10,000? Well, Wayfair reached Newsweek and made it clear in a statement that these cabinets are made for industries that are actually expensive and similar in design with others.

Wayfair temporarily removed those listings as it is failing to explain the product and price relation. Here is the statement,

“There is, of course, no truth to these claims. The products in question are industrial grade cabinets that are accurately priced. Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point.”

Wayfair’s denial notwithstanding, netizens have found other GROSSLY overpriced merchandise for sale on other websites (Amazon.com, eBay, Etsy, Walmart), including:

  • A wooden shoe-organizer for $9,999.
  • A cup for $7,459.31.
  • A bottle of Johnson’s lotion or wash for the strangely precise price of $20,625.93, with this instruction from the seller: “If the item arrives and is DOA (dead on arrival)…please report the problem within 2 business days….”
  •  A lifelike silicone male baby-doll for $7,000.
  • A toy box for $9,999.

I haven’t verified the above items, but I can confirm that there really is a silk down pillow on sale on Amazon.com for $10,233. Here’s the link, which is still active as of the time I’m writing this post (6:18 AM, July 24, 2020):

This is what Portland looks like under Mayor Wheeler’s watch: “I don’t like it anymore””

Portland: Day 50-something of rioting by Antifa/thugs/demorats.

The result? THIS:

I lived in Portland from 1995 to 1999. Sure, we had PLENTY of liberals there at that time. They were mostly hippies who hung out on the streets dancing and smoking pot. They were harmless.

Today, not so much.

The progressive leaders allow thugs to freely roam, riot, loot, burn and destroy their cities. Thankfully, President Trump is doing something about it.

Federal agents arrived in Portland last night to stop the rioters from attacking federal property.

About time! Time to restore law and order and stop the progressive madness.

This is what Chiraq looks like under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch: ARMED 10-year-old kids committing carjackings

Chiraq had a mass shooting last night: 14 shot during ambush near funeral home in Chicago, many in critical condition. According to the mayor, “too many guns are on our streets and in the hands of people who should never possess them.”

Meanwhile, Mayor Lori Lightfoot continues to fight for the safety of her citizens President Trump on Twitter. Her city has become so dangerous that people are afraid to leave their houses for fear of being shot or the victim of a carjacking by ARMED 10-year-old CHILDREN.

As MyFoxChicago reports (Originally from Chicago Sun Times, 7/20/20, 6:08 CDT, in Calumet Heights [South Side community area of Chicago,] Cook County, Illinois):

Chicago police say a group of children, ages 10 to 17, carjacked Alyssa Blanchard and at least 15 other people since late June — wreaking havoc on Blanchard’s generally peaceful South Side neighborhood.

“I’m scared to use my garage. I don’t feel safe in my neighborhood,” said Blanchard, an elementary school teacher at Chicago Public Schools.

Blanchard was carjacked July 14 while returning home in the early evening. As she pulled into her alley garage on South Kingston Avenue, she noticed a vehicle and three or four children come toward her. Two children armed with handguns pointed them to her head and ordered her out of her BMW, she said. One child looked as young as 11, she said.

“It was so instantaneous … I was just scared for my life. I thought, ‘this is it,’” she said.

Police published a community alert Sunday evening warning of 14 other carjackings tied to the children. According to the alert, the children are committing the carjackings at a greater frequency, with six carjackings reported just last Saturday.”

This is what Portland looks like under Mayor Wheeler’s watch

The city of Portland is on day 50-something of daily riots by ANTIFA/thugs/demorats. You may not be aware of this violence though as the mainstream media is not reporting the truth.

If you want to know what is happening there, follow Andy Ngo on Twitter. Here’s what is happening in the streets of Portland:

The feds have responded and have gone in to protect federal facilities and make arrests. Of course, this has upset the liberals. Can’t have law and order because TDS is a serious illness.

How badly infected are liberals with TDS? The Oregon Attorney General and ACLU is now suing because the feds are daring to protect their property and employees.

Mayor Ted Wheeler’s response?

Sucks to be living in Portland right now. Fox News reports that local businesses have reported $23 million in losses due to looting and rioting that have gripped its downtown area since the end of May.

Yet you guys knew that elections would have consequences. Enjoy your liberal utopia!
