Chiraq moves Wuhan virus goal post from “flatten the curve” to a measurement of seven factors

Mayor Lightfoot (r) poses with her stylist after SHE was ALLOWED a hair cut, while violating her own social distancing rules

Washington state announced a four-phase plan to safely re-open their state which the Gov. Inslee dubbed, “Safe Start.”

Of course the “Safe Start” plan to re-open is much more complicated than the quick decision to shutdown the state and order residents to stay home. Yet Chiraq has got Washington State beat in their approach to re-open…

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the Chicago Department of Public Health announced a new five-phase plan to re-open their city. From the press release:

“The framework – organized into five phases in alignment with the State of Illinois’ “Restore Illinois” plan – will advise Chicagoans on how to safely exit from shelter-in-place while continuing to prioritize the health of our most vulnerable residents.”

Guess what the name of this five-phase plan is? I hope you’re not drinking a beverage when you read this: “Protecting Chicago.”

The five phases include:

PHASE ONE: STRICT STAY-AT-HOME
PHASE TWO: STAY-AT-HOME
PHASE THREE: CAUTIOUSLY REOPEN
PHASE FOUR: GRADUALLY RESUME
PHASE FIVE: PROTECT

The original goal of “flatten the curve” has now morphed into the following seven requirements to transition from Phase 2 to Phase 3:

COVID-19 Case Rate (over 14 days, as a rolling average):Declining rate of new cases, based on incidence and/or percent positivity
Severe Outcome Rate (over 14 days, as a rolling average): Stable or declining rates of cases resulting in hospitalization, ICU admission, and/or death
Hospital Capacity Citywide (over 14 days, as a rolling average): Hospital beds: <1800 COVID patients, ICU beds: <600 COVID patients, Ventilators: <450 COVID patients •Testing Capacity: Test at least 5% of Chicago residents per month
Testing Percent Positivity Rates (over 14 days, as a rolling average):Congregate: <30% positive tests; Community: <15% positive tests •Syndromic Surveillance (over 14 days, as a rolling average): Declining emergency department visits for influenza-like illness and/or COVID-like illness
Case Investigation & Contact Tracing:Expanded system in place for congregate and community investigations and contact tracing

Meanwhile, while the good mayor is oh-so-concerned with protecting Chiraq, the criminals keep up their business:

Chiraq’s criminals violate stay at home order: 21 shot, 7 killed last Tuesday in most violent day of 2020
Wuhan virus ain’t stopping Chiraq shootings: 22 wounded, 1 killed this past weekend

And this is happening: “Chicago hides names of released prisoners from police

Way to “protect” Chicago.

Girls, your feelings don’t matter; boys who feel like a girl are more worthy than you

Progressives will sacrifice the feelings of teenage girls in order to satisfy the transgender agenda.

Young girls WILL compete against boys and like it.

Young girls WILL share bathrooms with men who feel like women and like it.

Young girls WILL share locker rooms with teenage boys who feel like girls and like it.

Such is the case in Township High School District 211 in Cook County, Illinois.

The Board of Education recently voted to allow unrestricted locker room access with respect to gender. Boys who FEEL like girls are free to venture into the girls locker rooms.

Watch the response of this one girl at the 1:07 mark. The poor thing is holding back tears.

Way to go, liberals. You push an agenda with NO RESPECT for REAL womens’ feelings. Tell me again which side is engaging in a #waronwomen?

Cook County commissioner who got his buddy’s parking ticket tossed said he did it “to help all Latinos”

He really cares: Luis Arroyo just trying to help Latinos…

The Chicago Way…

From Chicago Sun Times: After his pal tried to clout his way out of a parking ticket by uttering that classic Chicago question, “Do you know who I am?” Cook County Commissioner Luis Arroyo Jr. didn’t hesitate to intervene and use his political weight to get the ticket tossed out.

It doesn’t hurt that that friend whose ticket Arroyo helped to get voided was Luis Pena, who Arroyo said is the 36th Ward superintendent for Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36th) — who is also Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s City Council floor leader.

But Arroyo on Friday insisted he wasn’t just protecting his buddy, but all Latinos. He said he stepped in to make sure “[Latinos] are being treated fairly by our officers. That goes for all Latinos in Cook County, not just someone I know.”

Though Arroyo admitted to the Chicago Sun-Times that he was the unnamed commissioner at the center of the 2018 ticket episode, the political fallout may not be over.

The latest chapter in the saga of Chicago clout began with the release of a Cook County inspector general’s report on Monday and saw the resignation a day later of the Cook County Forest Preserve Police chief.

In that report, Inspector General Patrick Blanchard found that Pena used his political connections to make a $250 parking ticket disappear.

According to the ticket, which was obtained by the Sun-Times through a Freedom of Information Act request, Pena was ticketed for parking in a handicapped spot Sept. 8, 2018, and was fined $250.

When he was handed the ticket, Pena allegedly asked the officer and an accompanying trainee “Do you know who I am?”

Pena then called Arroyo about the ticket, who contacted a “high-ranking [Forest Preserve Police] official” about voiding the citation, according to the report. The commissioner said the officer “displayed a poor attitude” and asked for the cop to be sent to his office for questioning, the report said.

The ticket was later dismissed, but the officer was sent to Arroyo’s office to be “personally subjected to criticism,” the inspector general’s report said.

Kim Foxx says criticism of her handling of Smollett case is due to her race

From Daily Mail: The Chicago prosecutor whose office dismissed charges against Jussie Smollett defended the decision on Saturday, saying the Empire actor was treated no differently than thousands of other defendants whose charges were similarly dropped since she took office.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx made the comments during a defiant and emotional address at the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.’s Rainbow Push Coalition.

Foxx openly wondered if her race had something to do with the harsh criticism she’s faced since her office announced that charges against Smollett had been dropped, WGN-TV reported.

The actor was accused of staging what he claimed to be a racist and homophobic attack in January.

‘I have been asking myself for the last two weeks what is this really about,’ she said.

‘As someone who has lived in this city, who came up in the projects of this city to serve as the first African American woman in this role, it is disheartening to me…that when we get in these positions somehow the goalposts change.’

Foxx, who recused herself from the case after she communicating with a Smollett relative during the probe, reiterated that she welcomes of an independent investigation into the way she and her office handled the case.

She also reminded the audience that her office did the same thing for the nearly 6,000 low-level defendants who had their charges dropped with ‘deferred prosecution’ during her tenure.

Further, she said that under the law, Smollett could be fined a maximum of $10,000 and that the actor did pay that amount because his $10,000 bond was forfeited.

But Foxx did not address specifics of the case, or the criticism leveled by legal experts and others who said it was highly unusual not to require an admission of guilt by Smollett, particularly since at the time they dropped charges, prosecutors said they believed they could have proven the charges against the actor.

‘In my 48 years of practice, I certainly have never seen a deferred prosecution done like that,’ Richard Kling, an IIT-Kent Law School professor told the Chicago Sun-Times last week.

Foxx also responded to the calls by various critics to resign, saying that she will complete her term that ends next year and has plans to run for re-election.
