Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames everyone but herself for BLM riots/looting

On Sunday night, BLM agitators clashed with police as rioters vandalized stores in downtown Chicago, with officers returning fire after being targeted by gunfire.

More than 100 people were arrested and 13 officers wounded as rioters smashed windows and looted high-end stores, authorities said.

Read the whole story here.

On Monday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot gave a press conference wherein she proceeded to blame “gun control laws.”

Unless you live under a rock, you’ll know that the current strict gun control laws in Chiraq do NOTHING to stop the regular, double-digit weekend shootings in that town.

The good mayor then went on to blame Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx due to her lack to file criminal charges against looters. As MyFoxChicago reported, Foxx fired back:

“The state’s attorney claims the relatively small number of looters who faced any charges after the destruction in late May and early June is a police problem and that it has not encouraged more looting.”

Read that whole story here.

Then hours later, Mayor Lightfoot stated she had a “productive call” with Kim Foxx and they are “committed” to seeing that these looting criminals are brought to justice. Don’t hold your breath.

I guess it’s a shell game as to who is responsible for the violence in that town. But we all know who is ultimately responsible, including those who elected this failure of a mayor.

BLM achieves justice in Seattle: First black police chief resigns

This is liberal logic for ‘ya.

Soon to be former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best

Carmen Best has been the Chief of Seattle Police since 2018.

She’s been through the trenches lately with the CHAZ/CHOP fiasco in Seattle (where two people were shot and killed and BLM/Antifa thugs took over public city streets). Agitators also showed up in her neighborhood to harass her.

Yesterday the Seattle City Council approved historic cuts to the Seattle Police Department. This included a $100,000 paycut for Chief Best.

Carmen Best is considered one of the more reasonable folk left in Seattle. And now she’s out. Read her resignation statement here.

Seattle citizens DESERVE what they vote for. Chief Best, not so much.

BLM/Antifa must be SO PROUD for driving out a women of color. Social justice achieved, indeed!

This is Chiraq under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch: 139% jump in murders, uptick in shootings in July 2020

There isn’t anyway to sugarcoat this: Demorat-controlled Chiraq is a very, very dangerous place to live right now.

The city has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. Yet it is obvious criminals don’t follow the law. Proof from MyFoxChicago:

“Murders and shootings reported last month in Chicago increased drastically from July 2019, but overall crime in the city decreased, according to data released by Chicago police.

The 105 murders reported in July mark a nearly 139 percent increase from the 44 reported in July 2019, while the 406 shooting incidents are a 75 percent increase from the 232 last July, according to figures in a statement from police Saturday.

So far this year, murders are up 51 percent compared to the period from January through July 2019, along with a 47 percent increase in shootings, police said.”

Read the whole story here.

There’s also this: “Number of Chicago shooting victims under 10 years old triples from last year.”

And take a WILD guess as to who is responsible for these shootings, according to the good mayor Lori Lightfoot:

UNREAL.

People of Chicago: YOU MUST WAKE UP!

Seattle City Council readies bill to abolish police but hey, you can get the library to read you a story!

PRIORITIES. LEFTIST priorities.

Seattle Police? BAD. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST. WHITE SUPREMACISTS. Must be gone.

The Seattle City Council knows exactly who is best to respond to your immediate, critical needs. The NY Post reports:

“Under the bill, cops would be replaced by “community-led activities” and organizations focused on “housing, food security, and other basic needs” along with “culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections,” according to documents posted by Christopher Rufo, Director of Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth & Poverty.

To gain police department funding, groups must show they are “well-versed in de-escalation skills” along with “trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis” and are “committed to hiring staff from the communities they serve,” according to the proposal.”

But hey, don’t worry if you can’t get an armed police officer to assist you during a rape or violent beat down. The libraries are still closed due to Wuhan virus political warfare, yet you can call Seattle Public library (SPL) and listen to a taxpayer-funded employee read a story. That’s because there’s $86 MILLION taxpayer dollars funding the library.

In a crisis, you can just call the SPL Lit Line for a little comfort!

“This phone service is designed to help library patrons with limited technology access stay connected to literature, local history, and their library while they are unable to visit us in person. Simply call 206-386-4656 and listen to a recording of a story, article or poem. “

I realize that the Seattle Council isn’t suggesting you call the library instead of the police they want to abolish yet…you never know with these crazy leftists. It could just be one part of their progressive solutions!

This is what NYC looks like under de Blasio’s watch: 176% increase in shootings last week, compared to last year

As I previously stated, when you have demorat “leaders” who support lawlessness, defunding the police and “criminal justice reform,” you can expect no consequences for illegal behaviors. And you can expect more of them.

Such as this, from NY Post: NYC’s 47 shootings last week are 176 percent increase since last year.”

Last week the city had 47 shootings compared with 17 during the same time period the year before. The 47 shootings included 14 murders. You can read all the shooting details in the link above.

The good mayor supported defunding the NYPD by $1 billion so don’t expect more resources to be put in place to address this uptick in violence.

Good luck, NYC. You’re going to need it.

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,

~Eowyn

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.
