President Trump Offers Assistance to Stop Mass Killing in Chicago – Letter to Governor and Mayor…

Chicago has been under Democrat political control for two generations.  The murder rate amid black communities is horrific.  No-one has done anything to stop the crime and violence and it continues to escalate.

Yesterday President Trump wrote a letter to Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot offering assistance from his administration:

continued..

It is likely the offer will be rebuked; and predictably both the governor and mayor will instead ask President Trump to send them more money.

Money will not solve the problem.  Hundreds of people are being killed in/around the majority black communities in Chicago because the city and state officials allow hundreds of people to be killed in the community.

If the crimes and killing in the Chicago area were actually unacceptable to the leaders in the Chicago area, they would stop it.  Yes, it really is that simple.

That is the unfortunate reality.

    Apparently, Ms. Lightfoot spends most of that money on hair cuts.

      So, is President Trump’s letter a prelude to federal intervention in Chicago, e.g., use of federal troops that so many have previously condemned?

      My understanding is that the president can’t just call up the National Guard; those troops are under the authority of the governor of each state,not the president.

      But under federal law, the president CAN use federal troops under certain circumstances.

      And if any city needed the use of federal troops, it would certainly be Chicago.

      Has President Trump just fired a shot across the Chicago Mayor and the Illinois governor’s bow?

      Will the president, after the mayor and governor’s predictable Leftist “resistance” bullshit, use federal troops to stop all the carnage?

        No, federal troops are not the proper tool for Chicago

        My prescription is:

        – More prosecutors willing to actually prosecute

        – Long sentences for felons in possession of a gun

        – Stop and Frisk to catch felons in possession of a gun

        – Surveillance cameras to catch felons retrieving guns from potted plants and parked cars

        (there was a shootout last week caught on doorbell-cam that showed 2 or 3 guys each retrieving handguns from a parked car, shooting down the street, and then replacing the guns back in the stash car)

        – Plenty of prison space to house convicted felons; you’ll need to incarcerate maybe 10 percent of the population – whatever it takes

        – No pansy prison releases for dangerous felons, covid or no covid

        Oh – and

        – Untimely accidents for judges who won’t hand down convictions

        I’m available for consultation and strategy formulation on an hourly fee basis

            So the city has received a gajillion dollars to spend and obviously they/she,? have not spent it well. What a shock. We DO know that she does spend time at the beauty parlor (evidently, not enough time), getting her hair cut AND styled. Maybe it’s a $500 haircut; the money must be going somewhere.

            How about this- it’s a bit old fashioned, but why not refuse to give her any more money unless she agrees that along with the money, will come Trump’s financial, LEO and civic consultants, to monitor how that money is spent along with better ideas on how to allocate it correctly. And if she isn’t willing to play ball, why not help some of the poorer families stuck in that hell hole, by giving them funds and assisting them to move. Why not? Give them a hand up, not a hand out.
            She doesn’t strike me as being too savvy when it comes to spending and managing the fiscal aspects of a big city. Heck, I wouldn’t trust her with my grocery shopping list and my book of coupons. I mean the woman can’t even find a decent hairdresser– or maybe she doesn’t own a mirror. I don’t usually comment on people’s looks, because it really adds nothing to the conversation, and to me, it just isn’t right (personally)….But she is nasty on the outside AND the inside, and is in a position, that I believe is far above her capabilities. And I believe that when politicians start using the f word and swearing in public, it just showcases their stupidity, their lack of political smarts and self awareness.
            She is just a mess- and I cannot even begin to understand or imagine why anyone, except her partner, would ever want to vote for her, even for dog catcher- I mean canine relocation officer. How do her voters, after looking at and listening to her as a candidate, get all excited, thinking wow-she is awesome! She’s a winner! And then finally, they get to cast their one and only vote, for that NUMBSKULL! Dang!

          Sorry. This is not an answer. Police surveillance, gang infiltration, boots on the ground, and intelligence gathering, keeping tract of known offenders – CPD knows who they are but aren’t allowed to gather intelligence to nail them. Chicago has a camera on every corner but can never find out who the perps are. Nonsense. No will to try.

          I grew up in Chicago. 50-60 years ago the residents of low income housing that used to border the Dan Ryan Expressway would be shooting at each other – across the multilane high speed expressway. I had friends that arrived home with bullet holes in their cars. NOTHING HAS CHANGED except the housing was finally torn down. All the violence is in the same areas since the 1950’s.

        The President doesn’t have to call in the military – he can merely declare Chicago a national security emergency and dispatch Fed Marshalls, Secret Service and other SWAT teams from various Federal Agencies from within the Executive Branch. This is what he did in Washington DC and the Dimwits were blindsided with the move – leaving them speechless. You didn’t hear much from MSM either did you? The action is totally under the authority and power of POTUS as executive of the Executive Branch.

        TBV’ the National Guard is the Governors military. The Governor can activate them for an emergence, but that cost the state money. A lot of it. The President can activate them and then the feds have to pay, and then the Governor has then just lost his military.

        None of this is about black lives and their value – it’s planned, orchestrated and directed chaos intended to create anarchy and ultimately smear/damage PDJT before the election. The chaos will cause fear among Americans who foolishly will vote for mail in ballots – the last remaining means of fraudulent voting for the Dimwits. It’s all about control. The blacks unfortunately are being used as the village idiots.

        The 2900 number is single victim/single-offender only. 2018 UCR indicates 7407 black murder victims out of 14,123 murders (52.4%).

        This is a staggering ratio considering blacks represent only 13.+% of US population.

        Incidentally, of the 7,407 black murder victims, 6,237 were male (84.2%).

        Interestingly, there were 8,957 total arrests for murder. 4,778 of murder arrestees were black (53.3%). UCR Expanded Homicide Data Table 6 indicates 89% of black murder offenders are male.

        So, you have black males, representing just 6% of the US population, committing 47.4% of murders. <<– Really think about this for a minute. This means that in 2018, murder victims were 8x more likely to be murdered by a black male than a non-black male.

        Needless to say, I applaud President Trump and his administration for calling out corrupt Democrat politicians on their negligence and corruption. The people of Chicago and other leftist controlled US cities deserve much, much better.

    CandyLand — perhaps the most notorious plantation in the south — was run by Democrats. Their successors, the modern day Carpetbaggers and Copperheads of today’s Machine Democrat syndicates and their cohort of radical leftists are doing the same thing in major American cities.

    They harvest the lives, the poverty and the tragedy. To harvest, they must first cultivate. Only by having done so can they divert incoming monies, governmental and philanthropic, and convert that into various forms of income for Democrat Machine insiders.

    CandyLand 2020. Machine Democrats don’t just allow rioting, looting and gunfire. They are there to cultivate it, monetize it, and harvest the money and the good will to get richer and more powerful doing so. Thus they treat the vulnerable no differently than they would an unwanted fetus parted out and sold to the highest bidder. Cuomo just gave quite the lesson sending the vulnerable elderly to their death in nursing homes when thousands of hospital beds laid empty to receive them. There are many forms of human harvesting; many ways to convert human suffering into personal wealth, power and career authority. Look how they prevaricate.

    There is no more hideous example of parasitic institutional behavior in American society than Machine Democrats and their leftist cohorts, with perhaps the exception of an enabling media, codependent foundations and the enabling academic/political community who are stakeholders in the status quo.

    And they rightly characterize it as Progressive.

    True. “Progressive” is where Stalin meets Mengele.

      Well said. Many good comments. But when discussing harvesting misery, don’t forget the homeless.

      Funny how as we started importing millions of refugees who provided big funding dollars to churches and organizations who resettled them, the homeless population of ordinary Americans exploded. How does that happen? Because when Joe, who has a mild drug problem or is just a little crazy or both, loses his job, again, the safety net of section 8 housing, free clinics, and job assistance for guys like Joe has been completely overwhelmed. The refugee has a whole network of paid people to get them situated and get jobs and tax assistance, but Joe is alone.

      A walk through an inner city is a great visual of the abject failure of our government.
