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”

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

This is what Chiraq looks like under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch

Along with regular weekend double-digit shootings, Chiraq has devolved into this:

The day after the above scene, the police union is asking President Trump for help because the mayor won’t stop the rioters and violent thugs. From MyFoxChicago: “Chicago police union wants Trump to intervene as video seems to shows protesters rioters throwing things at cops.”

And while Mayor Lightfoot IS being derelict in her duty to provide law and order in her city, she’s got her priorities straight:

What a disgrace this mayor is.

LOL: Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot begs Walmart to stay after destructive looting

With leadership like this, why would Walmart want to stick around?

“Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Tells Concerned Alderman: “Your 100% Full of Sh*t”

If you owned a business in a city (most-likely a blue one) where politicians allow rioters and looters to freely roam and destroy your property, what is your incentive to rebuild and stay there? Especially when many (again, blue) cities are talking about defunding the police?

Apparently Walmart is considering not rebuilding in Chiraq. And the mayor is trying to save face for her failure to control the chaos.

Washington Times reports that Walmart might leave. From their story:

“A local radio station reported on a conference call between the Democratic mayor and business leaders affected by the chaos. WBBM’s Craig Dellimore said she “pleaded” with the company to stay.

Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, was cautious about making any new commitments to the city as it assesses the damage.

“I think in the case of Walmart, what they were focused on was assessing the damage,” Ms. Lightfoot said, the station reported June 4. “They are doing an effort to donate fresh produce, to the extent of what’s left so it doesn’t perish, and other perishables, and they are taking their time, as I would expect. My hope is that they will come back.

Read the whole story here.

BTW Chicago residents: Even if Walmart does stay you will have less money to spend at their stores: “Chicago mayor says taxpayers may have to foot bill for $700M budget shortfall.”

Illinois Gov. Pritzker to allow online SNAP grocery purchases; big companies to benefit

Almost a year ago I quit shopping at Wal-Mart due to their relationship with China. We now make our grocery purchases from a local employee-owned grocery store.

We use to make monthly trips to the city to do large purchases at a family-owned, Oklahoma grocery chain. That has come to an end, unfortunately, because of the Wuhan virus. I really miss that monthly trip as this store is THE BEST: Extremely WIDE aisles, HUGE grocery carts, good prices, TONS of checkout stations available and they employ people with disabilities to bag your groceries.

The fear of going out to grocery stores and catching the virus combined with the severe restrictions stores have been ordered to implement (only one person per cart, only go one way in the aisle, etc.), many people are now ordering online for delivery or pick up. And they are ordering from those big chain stores that have the resources to implement those options: Walmart, Target and Amazon.

Demorat Illinois Governor JB Pritzker has recognized that many SNAP recipients may want to use their benefits in the same way and will now allow online SNAP purchases (which was approved by the federal government). From his tweets:

“To keep more families safe and healthy, my administration is expanding the ways in which SNAP recipients can acquire groceries to include online purchasing.

The best part is that in addition to helping families shop a little easier and safer during this pandemic, this is a permanent new feature of the SNAP landscape in Illinois that will support our residents for many years to come.”

While I’m all for people having options to make online purchasing, I’m saddened to see that major, big-box corporations will most likely be the primary beneficiaries (Walmart and Amazon have already agreed to be part of the program). Aren’t those the exact type of wealthy companies that demorats claim to despise?

You know the local mom-and-pop stores and locally-owned stores aren’t going to benefit from this new SNAP option nearly as much as Walmart and Amazon. Just a shame that while big boxes thrive, our local small businesses are dying. With the support of our taxpayer dollars.

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

Read the whole press release and five-phase plan here.

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.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Warns Stay-At-Home Violators: ‘We Will Take You To Jail, Period!’

From the mayor who violated her own social distancing rules in order to get HER hair cut. After all, SHE’S in the public eye so she be special.

She states that if you violate the “law,” you will be taken to jail. PERIOD.

I’m curious as to which LAW the good mayor will cite if you violate a stay at home ORDER.

Meanwhile in Chiraq: “4 dead, 30 hurt in Chicago weekend shootings so far

And this: “Illinois releases 146 sex offenders, including 3 sexually dangerous persons

Seems the REAL criminals in Chiraq and Illinois are the ones getting a free pass.

Welcome to the new America under the Wuhan virus tyranny.

Wuhan virus ain’t stopping Chiraq shootings: 22 wounded, 1 killed this past weekend

Just a little over a week ago Chiraq had their most violent day of shootings so far this year. And despite the “stay at home” order, the shootings continued to rack up this past weekend.

Apparently it’s still business as usual in Chiraq.

From MyFoxChicago: A man was killed and 22 other people, including a 2-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl, have been injured by gunfire across Chicago so far this weekend.

The fatal attack happened Saturday night in Englewood on the South Side. Two men were sitting in a parked vehicle at 11:56 p.m. when someone walked up and fired shots in the 5700 block of South May Street, according to Chicago police. A 22-year-old man was hit multiple times in the side and ran to a nearby alley.

He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Alexis Perez of Edgewater on the North Side.
The other man, 39, was hit in both shoulders and taken to the same hospital in fair condition, police said.

The 2-year-old and a 28-year-old man were hurt in the weekend’s first shooting Friday evening in Gresham on the South Side.

They were in a vehicle about 6 p.m. on West 84th Street when another vehicle pulled up and someone fired shots, hitting the man and the toddler, police said. The man’s vehicle rammed into a porch and came to a rest in the 8400 block of South Damen Avenue.

The man was shot in the back of the head and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition, police said. The boy was hit in the foot, and his condition was stabilized at Little Company of Mary Hospital.

A teenage girl was also injured Saturday night in Ashburn on the Southwest Side. The 17-year-old was a passenger in a vehicle at a stop sign at 11:01 p.m. on 79th Place when a white Ford Taurus with dark tinted windows pulled up, according to police. Two males got out of the Taurus and fired multiple shots, hitting the girl in the leg. The girl flagged down officers in Marquette Park and was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in good condition.

Six people were hurt in a series of shootings lasting just over an hour early Sunday in Lawndale and Englewood.

The most recent attack left three people injured in Lawndale on the West Side.

At least six other people have been shot throughout Chicago since 5 p.m. Friday.

Last week, three people were killed and 19 others were injured in gun violence across the city over Easter weekend.

Illinois mayor can ban booze and guns under coronavirus emergency act

Deborah Feinen using her powers…

Yeah, that won’t cause a panic. Oh, and they have ZERO confirmed cases in the city. Never let a crisis go to waste…

From NY Post: The Second Amendment be damned! At least an Illinois mayor seems to think so.

In an executive order, Champaign Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen declared a coronavirus emergency — not one case yet in the city of 87,500 — and included ordinances that let her ban the sale of firearms and ammunition as well as booze.

“None of the options will necessarily will be implemented but are available in order to protect the welfare and safety of our community if needed,” city Communications Manager Jeff Hamilton told local NBC affiliate WAND-TV.

Feinen let it be known that she is in charge. “So many of those powers, I have had from the beginning,” Feinen told WAND-TV. “All we have done is enumerate them and now the public is aware of them. So, I am the liquor commissioner. I can shut down bars yesterday, I could have shut them down two years ago. Nothing has changed with respect to that, it is just that we have laid it out, so people are aware of that. In respect to the other items that are listed in the attachment, they have been listed in the city code for 15 years.”

Chiraq’s gun control laws at work: Eleven children wounded in shootings since Friday night

Right before I published this post I saw that the number of kids shot went up from eight to eleven.

Mayor Lightfoot’s “Accountability Monday” meeting should be fun.

MyFoxChicago reports that since Friday night eight children were shot and wounded. The minors were wounded at a “gathering” at an apartment complex on the South Side. From their report:

“Three adults also were wounded in the shooting at the Parkway Gardens housing complex.

Police said a 14-year-old girl, 18-year-old man and 23-year-old woman were listed in critical condition. The girl suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, lower backside and leg, while the woman suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, head and stomach. The man suffered multiple wounds to his leg.

A 20-year-old man who suffered wounds to his face, chest and leg was listed in serious condition.

Another 14-year-old girl, who suffered a gunshot wound to her leg, and a 15-year-old girl with gunshot wounds to her leg and foot were in good condition, police said. The release said the circumstances leading to the shooting weren’t immediately known. Police said the 23-year-old woman was armed with a handgun, but didn’t say whether she fired the weapon.”

And despite having a “Child Access Prevention Law,” three minors were wounded during accidental shootings. These incidents involved a seven-year-old girl holding a gun and shooting an 11-year-old boy; a young boy playing with a gun and shooting an eight-year-old boy; and a 14-year-old girl shot in the cheek by a 15-year-old boy.

I wonder if any adults will be held responsible for allowing children to access their firearms?

Read about all the shootings here.
