    It’s gotten so bad even the Chicago Tribune has noticed. 25,000 felons allowed to just walk free without even being prosecuted by the State’s Attorney.
    So cops think “why bother arresting them? Why put MY life on on the line?”
    And when you can commit a felony with NO consequences, criminals think “Hell, why NOT loot Macy’s?”

        Does no good when the “victim” is an empty store at 3:30 in the morning. A security guard tried to fend them off at one of the stores. He’s in the hospital.

        The police knew a caravan of cars was headed downtown from the south side. Why did the bridges not go up until 4 hours later? Someone on the inside wants this stuff to happen. Perhaps the same machine democrats who backed Preckwinkle and lost? The ones who are happy to wreck the schools to make Groot look bad? Are they willing to destroy the city in order to destroy her political career? Think this is BS? They are the same marxist democrats willing to burn the country to make Trump look bad.

        Start shooting looters in the head. Political demonstrations? Great. Enjoy your right to protest. But CPD should have snipers positioned on roof tops or in windows. Throw something at a cop, or throw a molotov cocktail at a building, and you get shot in the head. I’ve had it with this bullshit. Every one of these organized attacks (and they STILL refuse to recognize that this is all organized and coordinated) is an attack on the country and must be shut down. The organizers are a bunch of cowards, putting baby mommas and gang bangers out front to take the incoming. So what? They went there willingly.

    The China Virus Scamdemic:

    Let’s add some things together:

    First, an article stating that the PCR tests for Covid-19 are bogus & basically worthless:

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/manufactured-pandemic-testing-people-any-strain-coronavirus-not-specifically-covid-19/5707781

    Next, here’s a video that builds on this article (16 minutes):

    And finally, an article about the evil madman Bill Gates complaining about the testing:

    https://www.pennlive.com/coronavirus/2020/08/us-virus-testing-has-mind-blowing-problems-bill-gates.html

    FTA: “Gates reiterated that he expects the U.S. to largely get through the pandemic by the end of next year as therapeutics and a vaccine become available.”

    According to the ‘expert’ Bill Gates, this nightmare continues until the end of 2021???

    Realize, that the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation have paid for this scam — from beginning to end. They’ve spread their wealth around to areas such as the initial alarming data projections (Imperial College) to the research labs to the WHO-NIH-CDC to the drug companies to the media — and on and on. They have financed the entire circle.

    Also realize that the GOAL of Bill Gates & his equally evil wife — is to vaccinate the entire world.

    I was taken to the woodshed by some of my good friends on CTH for not being a fan of the Kodak Loan. I agree with the strategy of repatriating ex-filtrated drug manufacturing but found this sort of directed effort to a specific supplier to not be the best execution of that strategy. Seems like Kodak executives awarded themselves massive stock option prior to the public announcement. Don’t give me deep state black ops to tarnish Navarro/Trump. These are known facts.

    FTA: “The Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating how Kodak controlled disclosure of the loan, word of which began to emerge on July 27, causing Kodak’s stock price to rise 25% that day.

    The SEC is also expected to examine the stock options granted to executives on July 27. The option grants instantly became profitable, at least on paper, after Kodak’s loan became public…”

I was shocked by what I learned — and appalled that, by swearing Congress to secrecy, the Trump administration is keeping the truth about a grave, looming threat to democracy hidden from the American people. On Friday, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a statement that only hints at the threats.

    The facts are chilling. I believe the American public needs and deserves to know them. The information should be declassified immediately.”

Plus, the speech will be given outside, so people can be in attendance. Low risk of COVID spread. Since it’s federal land, PA governor cannot stop the speech. Hatch Act does not apply to the President. Besides, FDR gave his acceptance speech in 1944 on a military base in CA. No complaints from the Democrats or Republicans at the time of FDR violating the Hatch Act then.

    Here’s an excerpt from John Solomon’s “Fallout”:

    Politics has always involved degrees of lying, exaggeration, and mistruths. As comics like to joke, “show me a good politician and I’ll show you a good liar.” But the ten-year period that began with the Obama presidency in 2009 was a far more consequential Decade of Deceit.

    Some of that deceit came from a new mastery by foreign adversaries of the ancient spy craft of disinformation. As Russia showed with its intervention in the 2016 American election, the 2010s opened a new era of social media manipulation, information insecurity, and manufactured news that could be hijacked to foment social and political unrest.

    The United States is a prime target for all those foreign adversaries that resent the success of our economy and the freedoms afforded by our democracy. U.S. military and intelligence chiefs are right to raise the alarm about this trend, and American high-tech companies are justified in seeking new fortifications to this advanced form of warfare.

    But the more consequential deceit of the last decade came from institutions—the FBI, the Justice Department, the State Department, and the mainstream media—where truth had once been mandatory for the bedrock trust the American public placed in them.

    For the first time, we saw in the 2010s a systematic effort by players in these institutions to knowingly and willfully promote falsehoods to achieve bureaucratic and political outcomes or, possibly, to foment division in America.

      Sorry, but Mike Parson has been awful.

      First he decided Missouri *wants* to accept more “refugees”; Missouri doesn’t want to.

      Now he put the Medicaid Expansion to Obamacare on an August primary – note that President Trump is the Republican nominee so who do you think showed up for this primary – and they passed it. Even worse, they passed it as a State Constitutional Amendment, so, it can’t be remedied. Work requirements can’t be added.

      They lied that it would cover the women/children/disabled/long term care for elderly, blah, blah, blah, but all it really did was add ABLE-BODIED ADULTS to the rolls, everything else is already covered in some form in Missouri.

      President Trump won Missouri in 2016 with 1,585,753 votes.

      This stupid Medicaid won 672,967 to 590,809 votes. Don’t you think if Parsons had put this on in November, when there is likely to be a landslide for President Trump, that most of the missing MILLION voters on the still sane right would have voted against it?

      Terrible, irremediable situation. This will harm those on a fixed income, as well as mean cuts in education, but worse, it has started the “show-me” state on a trajectory like all the others:

      “The American Republic will endure the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.” (de Tocqueville). Same goes for the State.

    This morning the 7-day average has been 1,117 cases. Or about .0095 percent. The threshold is 10 out of 100,000 or .01 percent.
