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.

Welcome to demorat-run California: Turn off AC & appliances during heatwave!

California is having a heatwave right now. They are also experiencing blackouts.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has a solution for that:

Years of “progressive climate change” policies have destroyed the energy infrastructure and capabilities in California. In their desire to be a leader in renewable energy, the demorats have destroyed the state’s ability to adequately handle “normal” weather events.

When are demorats going to learn that elections have consequences?

Before you know it, California will be like this:

North Korea doing their part to save the environment…

NYC under democrat control: City hits milestone as shootings top 1,000 for the year

No wonder there’s a mass exodus from that demorat-run city.

From NY Post: The city surpassed 1,000 shootings for the year on Sunday, according to NYPD data, which also shows an average of nearly 10 people fell victim to gun violence each day over the last four weeks.

With four more months left in 2020, New York City logged 1,004 shootings as of Aug. 30, according to NYPD data released Monday. Last year, there had been just 537 by that time.

It is the first time the city has eclipsed the benchmark in gun violence since 2015, when 1,138 shootings were recorded for the entire year.

“Mr. Mayor, it is time to stop calling New York the safest big city,” a Brooklyn cop quipped to The Post.

The notable number comes a week before Labor Day, when cops expect another bloody holiday weekend in the Big Apple.

The city has seen 13 straight weeks of surging gun violence — with 375 more shootings and 499 more victims compared to the same time last year.

There were 277 shooting victims logged over the 28 days ending Aug. 30 — meaning on average, nearly 10 people per day were shot, NYPD data shows.

Portland businesses fleeing downtown offices due to nightly BLM riots

Demorat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler

The City of Portland is on day 80-something of demorat-approved nightly chaos: Rioting, looting, burning buildings and people being injured. It’s a dangerous place for residents to visit.

Apparently some businesses have had enough and are packing up and leaving. From NY Post:

Large companies are fleeing offices in downtown Portland — because nightly Black Lives Matter riots are making the heart of the Oregon city a no-go area, according to a report.

“Businesses are leaving,” Andrew Hoan, president and CEO of the Portland Business Alliance (PBA), told KATU.

“The financial consequences to the downtown corridor are a running calculation that is almost impossible to wrap your mind around,” he said — with one company already saying the riots have cost $20 million in damage and lost business.

“You have blocks and blocks of plywood. You have graffiti. You have an accumulation of damages that are unrepaired, an ongoing perception that coming downtown is not a safe place,” Hoan said.

“We need to start to turn the corner now, so that this sort of irreparable damage does not last,” the business leader said.

Portland has seen regular violence and destruction during 83 consecutive nights of protests, with Tuesday once again being declared a riot as a mob smashed its way into a government building and set fires.”

Good job, demorats. Remember this 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.”

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!

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.

Restorative justice in SF: DA Boudin drops charges against one suspect in viral attack on Asian man

Apparently the victim decided restorative justice was the best outcome for this case. I’m sure no influence was put upon him…

From SF Gate: San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is withdrawing charges against one of the two suspects arrested in connection to a shocking viral video that shows an Asian man being robbed.

Twenty-year-old Dwayne Grayson, who police say recorded and uploaded the disturbing clip to social media, will no longer be charged with elder abuse, and will instead face “restorative justice,” which involves rehabilitation and reconciliation with victims.

“We’ve been in conversation with the victim who expressed interest in a restorative justice outcome in this case,” Alex Bastian, a spokesperson for the DA’s office, told The Chronicle. “Specifically, against the young person who videoed the incident. We respect victims and their desires and we will explore a restorative justice outcome.

Grayson was also suspected of violating probation for battery.

Earlier Monday, police arrested 56-year-old Jonathan Amerson, the person suspected of hitting the victim with a metal pole. He was charged with robbery and elder abuse, and is also suspected of robbing the same victim of his recyclables about two months ago in the same area.

There’s almost 500 comments on this article, the majority of which are not positive. Too little, too late demorats. You gotta learn the hard way:

Liberal utopia achieved: San Francisco ends cash bail for all criminal cases

Newly elected San Francisco District Attorney, Chesa Boudin, ran on this issue.

He is the son of Weather Underground terrorists and was raised by Bill Ayers.

Yesterday the DA announced that his office will no longer ask for cash bail as a condition for a defendant’s pretrial release.

What could possibly go wrong?

More from SF Gate: Prosecutors will use a “risk-based system” and weigh whether a defendant might flee or pose a threat to public safety. The former public defender has often said that the cash bail system unfairly affects indigent and defendants and people of color.

“For years I’ve been fighting to end this discriminatory and unsafe approach to pretrial detention. From this point forward, pretrial detention will be based on public safety, not on wealth,” Boudin said in a statement.

“Mr. Boudin is in the process of building the largest criminal justice revolving door imaginable, and San Francisco will pay a heavy price for it,” said Tony Montoya, president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association.
