Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot ensures citizens that the “backbone” workers of their neighborhoods will keep their jobs

Who do you think is the “backbone” workers of Chiraq neighborhoods? If you’re Mayor Lightfoot, then it’s the public workers of course!

Yesterday the mayor announced that she wouldn’t have to lay off 350 public employees because of large revenues generated by the sale of recreational and medical marijuana. Mayor Lightfoot said, “This will ensure Chicago’s public workers, the backbone of our neighborhoods, maintain their jobs and health insurance while also protecting the critical services Chicagoans rely on during these unprecedented times.”

Of course, the city still faces a $1.2 BILLION deficit in next year’s budget. But whatever. I’m sure the many demorat-run broke cities are hoping for a bailout in some Wuhan virus relief package next year when Pelosi and Schumer may get their way.

You know who might have a different opinion about the “backbone” workers in Chicago? The restaurant owners and their workers who have closed their businesses and been laid off due to Illinois demorat governor ordering a statewide shutdown of restaurants and bars for on-premise service that took effect March 16. The good Chiraq mayor has issued another stay-at-home advisory effective today.

Over 65 business owners have closed their restaurants in Chicago due to the financial strain of government ordering private businesses to quit operating. Thousands of employees have been laid off due to the government-ordered closures, too.

But don’t fret for the business owners losing their livelihoods nor the employees out of a job/income. They can be sure that the city’s public workers – the backbone of the neighborhoods – are getting paid!

Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot issues stay-at-home advisory; “cancel your Thanksgiving plans”

Remember, this comes from the same mayor who in April violated her own Wuhan virus guidelines/orders to get a haircut.

On Thursday Mayor Lightfoot issued a stay-at-home advisory and, according to MyFoxChicago “made a strong declaration about the severity of the rise in cases, saying that if Chicago residents don’t change their behavior immediately, the city is “on track to lose 1,000 more Chicagoans” or more by year’s end.”

More from the MyFoxChicago story:

“Chicago has reached a critical point in the second surge of COVID-19, demanding that we undertake this multi-faceted and comprehensive effort to stop the virus in its tracks,” Lightfoot said in a press release.

“The gains we have made this past year have been the result of our willingness to work together. Even in this difficult moment, we will continue to unite as we always have for our city in order to halt the rise we’re seeing, shake out of the fatigue we’ve been experiencing, and make the crucial difference in what our future is going to look like.”

Read about her dire warnings and other restrictions here.

You want to see just how concerned the good mayor was just five days prior to this new mandate? Take a look and tell me how much of a “comprehensive effort” she made to help do her part to #stopthespread of Wuhan and “shake out of the fatigue:”

Typical hypocritical demorat.

Why won’t she debate? Kim Foxx declines to debate challenger

I took a debate class in high school many moons ago. It was actually a great class where one learned many concepts that liberals despise: argument preparation, persuasive arguing (which later helped in my marketing/proposal writing career), logic and fact organization (with fact-based evidence), and communication, among others. I wonder if they even still teach debate in high school any more? You can certainly tell that ever since 2016, debate appears to be a lost art.

Cook County State Attorny Kim Foxx (demorat) also appears to not favor the art of debate anymore as she has chosen to avoid that event with her challenger, republican Pat O’Brien.

The reason Foxx won’t debate? MyFoxChicago says it’s because of Pat O’Brien using “Trump-like name calling and fear mongering” in recent editorial board interviews. Oh noes!

More from MyFoxChicago: “Foxx’s campaign released a statement, saying in part: “Ultimately, these Trump-like ‘win at all costs, even when the proof is in front of your face’ strategies are dangerous for our criminal justice system and our democracy.”

Read the whole story here.

Girl, please. If the proof is that strong, it should give you a major advantage at a debate.

What a coward.

More Chicago restaurants to close as mayor keeps city under Wuhan virus restrictions

The city of Chiraq has a population of almost 2.7 million. And because the Wuhan virus has been so deadly there it is an election year, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has kept the city – and its businesses – under severe lockdowns.

The Wuhan virus dashboard from the City of Chicago’s Health Department (9/22/20):

First thing I noticed about the dashboard is they make it very hard to locate active positive cases. The front page (above) lists cumulative (3/1 through 9/22/20) tests and cases (77,675). In order to find current active cases, you have to click on Latest Data, Daily Status Report. Here data is broken down by age, gender and ethnicity.

Yet that “report” AGAIN shows total cumulative cases (77,657). Total deaths: 2,935.

I finally found a table, “Daily Chicago COVID-19 Cases, Deaths, and Hospitalizations.”

That table shows less than 600 active cases per day since 5/28/20. For four months .023 percent of Chiraq’s population has had active cases of Wuhan virus. Not serious numbers by any means, especially to warrant business restrictions.

So why is the mayor still hindering businesses?

MyFoxChicago reports that the 25-percent indoor capacity limit currently imposed by the city is ruining the restaurant industry in Chicago.

Restaurant owners are imploring the city to expand indoor eating capacity yet the city insists the coronavirus numbers are “just not right yet.”

Read that whole story here.

I’m guessing the numbers probably won’t be “just right” until November 4, 2020.

Demorat-run Chiraq: As murders/crime soar, judges are freeing more violent-crime suspects on electronic monitoring

From MyFoxChicago: Judges in Chicago have increasingly ordered criminal defendants placed into an electronic-monitoring program in lieu of jail, a move police officials blame for the surge in gun violence plaguing the city.

On Aug. 9, 43 people facing murder charges were enrolled in Cook County’s electronic-monitoring program, a 40% increase from the same day last year. In addition, 160 people charged with robbery and 1,000 people charged with illegal gun possession are enrolled as of Aug. 9, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The Chicago Police Department has cited the increase in program participants who would otherwise be granted high bail or remanded to police custody for the spike in gunplay.

“My hope is that the deaths of these young people will not be in vain and will prick the hearts of the decision-makers who release violent offenders on electronic monitoring back into these very communities to mete out this kind of violence every weekend,” police Superintendent David Brown said after a bloody Independence Day weekend during which two children, ages 7 and 14, were killed.

None of the three of the men charged in the shooting death of 7-year-old Natalia Wallace over the holiday weekend was ordered into the monitoring program, according to the newspaper. However, the department gave the Times several examples of defendants charged with violent crimes who committed more offenses while subject to electronic monitoring.

One is Chrishawn Thomas, 18, who is accused of robbing a female driver in March at gunpoint. He was granted $500 bail and placed on electronic monitoring. Weeks later, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office received an “unauthorized leave” alert related to Thomas.

Hours later, he allegedly shot an off-duty Chicago police officer during an attempted robbery. The officer returned fire and hit Thomas in the legs. Thomas was arrested and is being held without bail.

People typically placed on electronic monitoring are usually required to stay home with exceptions typically made for school or work.

Judge Timothy Evans and Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx

Chief Cook County Judge Timothy Evans said judges “must balance the right of the defendant to be presumed innocent with any evidence that the defendant would pose a real and present threat to the physical safety of any person.”

The number of people released from detention and into monitoring has increased because of the coronavirus pandemic, the newspaper reported. Correctional facilities throughout the country have similarly reduced their inmate populations in an effort to prevent infections.

Kamala Harris: “Let’s fight with confidence in ourselves and a commitment to each other”

Could some one be SO OUT OF TOUCH with what is happening in demorat-run cities in America today?

The answer: Yes. See the following example:

Hey “Top Cop,” is this how you and your fellow progressives define “commitment to each other?” (Some videos NSFW)

The only “committment to each other” these people desire is for YOU to COMPLY with THEIR ideology.

Remember in November!

Peons in Chicago aren’t equal to the Good Mayor Lori Lightfoot as she bans protests on HER street

Chiraq is a dangerous place these days. Even for the police. See the following:

This is Chiraq under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch: 139% jump in murders, uptick in shootings in July 2020
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames everyone but herself for BLM riots/looting
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames shootings on guns from states with “virtually no gun control”

You know who doesn’t have to worry about rioting, looting or shootings (she has 24/7 police protection)? The mayor as she’s BANNED protests on her street. The police apparently authorized this and will arrest anyone who refuses to leave her street in the Logan Square neighborhood. Details from MSN:

“The police directive surfaced in a July email from then-Shakespeare District Commander Melvin Roman to officers under his command. It did not distinguish between the peaceful protesters Lightfoot regularly says she supports and those who might intend to be destructive, but ordered that after a warning is given to demonstrators, “It should be locked down.”

Since the order, and even for a time just prior to its writing, Chicago cops have repeatedly blocked protesters’ access to the block with groups of officers and barricades. Police have often kept protesters contained at the nearby corner of Kimball and Wrightwood avenues, though one standoff between activists and officers last month saw police go as far as bringing in an armored vehicle in case things got out of hand.

Some neighbors in the Logan Square area have complained about the city’s approach to protests around Lightfoot’s house, which at times has included checking residents’ IDs before letting them close. Ron Kaminecki, a 69-year old patent attorney and bike shop owner who lives on Bernard Street a few houses from Lightfoot, said some neighbors have been frustrated by the police presence and barricades.

“I came up with the name ‘Fort Lori’ because it’s so hard to get in and out,” Kaminecki said.

In response to questions from the Tribune, police said state law and Chicago’s municipal code prohibit protests in residential areas.”

Read the whole story here.

Mayor Lightfoot defended her actions saying, “I have a right to make sure that my home is secure.”

The current status of demorat-run cities in America

I know #OrangeManBad and demorats are doing everything in their power to ensure he is not re-elected this year but, REALLY? Is this what most democrats support? The destruction of their own cities and harassment of citizens?

It’s INSANE. Take a look for yourself (some of the videos NSFW):

New York:

Portland (on day 80-something of nightly Antifa/BLM riots):

Seattle:

Chicago:

Minneapolis (this is just unreal):

Serious question, democrats: Is this REALLY how you want to live? Do you really believe this uncontrolled violence is the way to defeat President Trump?

Priorities: Mayor Lightfoot names committee to review public monuments across Chicago

Guess Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot has a lot of free time. Never mind the BLM rioting, looting and shootings in that city.

You know what they need?

A 20-person committee to catalog monuments and art on public land to determine which warrant attention and recommend new monuments or public art!

According to MyFoxChicago, the good mayor believes that this will “create a platform to channel our city’s dynamic civic energy to purposefully reflect our values as Chicagoans and uplift the stories of our city’s residents, particularly when it comes to the permanent memorialization of our history and shared heritage.”

Does that include this “civic energy,” Mayor?

Lightfoot also said her effort will develop a framework “for marking public space that elevates new ways to memorialize Chicago’s true and complete history.”

Here’s a glimpse of the true Chiraq:

I’m sure this new committe will solve all of their problems!
