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.

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.
