The priorities of Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Chicago Mayor has her priorities double standards when it comes to Wuhan virus “restrictions.”

Back in April the good mayor violated her own social distancing mandates to get her hair cut. You see, she’s in the public eye so that made her violation A-OK.

Back in June the good mayor did nothing about a massive rally. In fact, she “encouraged the continuance of peaceful protests.”

Yet on New Year’s Eve the good mayor was very concerned about gatherings and shutdown a couple of parties and issued citations because they violated Wuhan virus rules.

According to MyFoxChicago, the city shut down two parties on Near Year’s Eve and issued seven notices to businesses for violating Wuhan virus restrictions. Citizens were doing their part to help enforce the good mayor’s rules: “City officials said they responded to 21 calls for violations of COVID-19 regulations.”

Meanwhile, the criminals keep doing what they do best in Chiraq: Ten people were shot and two killed to start out the three-day holiday weekend.

And Chiraq ended 2020 with 769 homicides — 274 more than the previous year and the most since 2016.

If you look at the Wuhan virus stats in Chiraq (don’t just read the MyFoxChicgo headlines), you’ll see that their main data dashboard highlights “positivity” rate (which has been on a decline since mid-Novembeer). And their hospital capacity numbers are not periously dangerous: ICU beds occupied are at 76.6% (pretty normal for this time of year) with Wuhan virus patients accounting for 22.1% of the ICU beds.

But the good mayor has to shutdown parties because it’s all about control. That’s her priority.

The public trust is gone: Are you really going to comply with the new Wuhan virus lockdowns?

Many states are going into lockdown mode again due to the rising number of Wuhan virus cases: California, Michigan, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, Minnesota, etc.

But we aren’t calling them “lockdowns” anymore (for obvious reasons). It’s now a “pause,” “freeze,” or “pulling an emergency brake.”

How Orwellian.

The bureaucrats can it whatever they want. We all know what it’s about: Control.

Remember when the Wuhan virus scare all started back in March? Lockdowns were the new normal, mandatory mask wearing and endless reminders about washing your hands and social distancing.

The jig is up. While us peons are reprimanded and reminded “to do what you’re told,” the demorat bureaucrats/BLM/Antifa/Biden voters are free to violate all Wuhan virus lockdown orders/mandates. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?

Oregon

Washington

Illinois

Minnesota

There are HUNDREDS of more examples during the past eight months where Wuhan virus rules were broken. And they were done, with demorat bureaucrats’ approval, in the name of social/racial justice.

That has eroded any trust the public has in the bureaucrats and their mandates. I don’t trust any one of them and what they (and the media) tell me.

I don’t need the government to protect my health and well being. I’ll stay home if I don’t feel safe, limit my outings if I want, and cook at home more instead of choosing to dine out.

And I’m also smart enough to realize the following:

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.

Illinois Gov. Pritzker orders police patrols amid Wuhan virus spikes

Gov. Pritzker

Illinois demorat Gov. J.B. Pritzker (you know, the one who acknowledged that his wife and family had gone to Florida amid the his stay-at-home orders) said that Illinois State Police will start patrolling bars and restaurants in regions of the state where Wuhan virus numbers are surging. Establishments that disregard his new restrictions could face sanctions including the loss of their liquor or gambling licenses.

From MyFoxChicago:

On another record-setting day for new COVID-19 infections, Pritzker announced the police patrols in four area of the state. The officers will be authorized to disperse crowds and issue citations for violators.

Pritzker previously downplayed enforcement while begging for compliance, but he said times have changed.

It is very serious right now, folks, and if we need to close down restaurants or bars or take away their liquor licenses, take away their gaming licenses, we will do that because we are now headed into a peak that is beyond, potentially, where we were in March and April,” Pritzker said during a visit to the St. Clair County Health Department in Belleville.

Earlier, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot had a similar message. Starting Friday, she ordered nonessential businesses to close by 10 p.m. and urged residents to limit gatherings to six people because of the troublesome rise in coronavirus cases. Bars that don’t serve food also have to stop serving customers indoors, and all restaurants and bars have to stop liquor sales at 9 p.m.”

Read the whole story here.

The MyFoxChicago article is short on statistics so I visited the Illinois Department of Public Health web site. Good luck finding and interpreting the statistics on that page. From their web site:

The state of Illinois has a population of just over 12.6 million.

According to the IL Dept. of Public Health web page, they have 360,159 confirmed cases during the pandemic. Not current cases. Cumulative.

You do the math.

They state the recovery rate from the Wuhan virus is 97%.

The IL Dept. of Public Health also lists the following statistic: ICU Beds: 1,329 Beds Available of 3,788. They don’t make it easy to find how many of those ICU beds are occupied due to Wuhan virus-related illnesses or just regular illnesses.

An interesting note I did find on the state public health page:

“On October 14, 2020 the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) began including both molecular and antigen tests in the reporting of the number of statewide total test performed in Illinois. Previously, due to the limited number of antigen tests and limited information about antigen test accuracy, antigen tests were not included in the total number (which comprised less than 1% of total tests performed). In August, the national case definition for a probable case changed and no longer required clinical symptoms to accompany a positive antigen test. An antigen tests alone is enough to be considered a probable case.

So now we are including a “probable” case in the Wuhan virus spike numbers? I call baloney on that.

Here in Oklahoma I’ve seen some fishy reporting on the Wuhan virus numbers. For example:

It was reported that the Oklahoma Departmet of Corrections has had 20 death due to the Wuhan virus. At least that’s what the headline said. Yet if you read the article it states,”To date, 20 inmate deaths are possibly or confirmed to be connected to coronavirus. Medical exams have confirmed four of the 20 deaths were caused, at least, in-part of COVID-19. The other 16 are under investigation.

In my small town the director of one of our two hospitals recently said at a city council meeting that the hospital had suspended ambulance service due to EMTs being in quarantine due to Wuhan virus. They were forced to use a private ambulance company for ambulance service.

As I was driving to work the day after he made that claim before the city council guess what I pulled over for? An ambulance from that hospital that was driving by with sirens blaring.

When the bureaucrats and media include the words “probable,” “connected,” “under investigation,” and then make statements that directly contradict what I see in action (a hospital ambulance in service), guarantee you I won’t believe that what they say “is very serious right now.”

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.

Wuhan virus being used as political warfare? Double standards prove it

You don’t think the Wuhan virus is being used as a political tool to hurt #OrangeManBad this November? Here’s the double standards that prove it is a prolonged, political warfare:

“Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration on Friday urged additional vigilance by local officials in 11 counties where there are upticks in COVID-19 cases”

“Mayor Lori Lightfoot breaks her own rules to get a haircut

“Democrat Gov. Pritzker’s Wife and Kids Caught Visiting Florida While He Orders Illinois To Stay-at-Home

“Gov. Inslee extends pause indefinitely for phased reopening

20,000 People Protest In Hollywood, Smaller Groups March Throughout LA And Orange Counties”

West Hollywood protest/CBS photo

Indeed, how much longer are us Americans going to allow these double standards to exist? Remember this November that elections do have consequences.
