Failed Chicago mayor Lightfoot says she would "absolutely" again exclude white journalists from interviewing her


The worst mayor in America is Lori Lightfoot of Chicago. And the competition is steep--including such flops as New York's Bill de Blasio, Portland's Ted Wheeler, and Lovely Warren of Rochester, New York, who was indicted earlier this month.

Lightfoot is also a racist.

From the Washington Examiner:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she would "absolutely" grant interviews only to journalists of color again after she drew waves of backlash earlier in the year when she announced the policy. 

"I would absolutely do it again. I’m unapologetic about it because it spurred a very important conversation, a conversation that needed to happen, that should have happened a long time ago," the Democrat said on a segment of the New York Times's podcast Sway, released on Monday. 

"Here is the bottom line for me: To state the obvious, I’m a black woman mayor," she said. "I’m the mayor of the third-largest city in the country. Obviously, I have a platform, and it’s important to me to advocate on things that I believe are important. Going back to why I ran — to disrupt the status quo. The media is critically important to our democracy. … The media is in a time of incredible upheaval and disruption, but our City Hall press corps looks like it’s 1950 or 1970." 

In May, Lightfoot said the one-on-one interviews that mark the two-year anniversary of her inauguration would not be offered to white reporters. At the time, she said the initiative would foster diversity and inclusion to push back against the "overwhelming whiteness and maleness of Chicago media outlets.

USA Today fact-checker twists herself into knots trying to explain why Megan Rapinoe is not a Subway spokesperson

Let's see, Megan Rapinoe, who plays for the the American women's soccer team in the 2020 Olympics, appears in at least one Subway commercial. Maybe more, but I've only seen one. But I've learned that does not make her a Subway spokesperson. While I'll accept that Rapinoe didn't stomp on the American flag after a World Cup match in 2019, I believe that makes her a Subway spokesperson.

Subway hired her to at the very least appear in an ad for the fastfood chain which means, to me, that makes her a spokesperson for Subway.

But not USA Today's fact-checker Chiara Vercellone, who says she isn't and in a fact-check that reads like a press release, a corporate PR hack told Vercellone, "Megan is one of several athletes and celebrities Subway partners with, but they are not the official company spokesperson."

So Rapinoe is a "partner," not a spokesperson. 

Same difference.

12 shot to death over weekend in Chicago and at least 58 others wounded

Chicago's violent spree continues. Over the last full weekend in July twelve peope were shot to death, including a still unidentified 17-year-old boy in Englewood, and at least 58 others were wounded. 

Meanwhile Chicago's ideologue mayor, Lori Lightfoot, continues to talk about fighting violence. Over at Fox Chicago, however, is a reminder that nearly a year ago Lightfoot rolled out a plan, "Our City, Our Safety," to counteract the mayhem, that would send money into 15 neighborhoods. 

Only gun violence is worse, and in some of the areas dramatically so, in most of those areas. 

Lightfoot's plan consists of social programs, not crime-fighting tactics. 

Surprised?

Obama ethics chief: Hunter Biden’s art selling scheme “sure looks like profiting off the presidency”

Of Hunter Biden's artwork, an art professor recently remarked, "They're fine decorative amateur work. Hey, everybody needs a hobby!" 

The younger Biden is offering up to $500,000 for his paintings. But simply put he has returned to his primary job over the decades, Chicago-style influence peddling. Hunter's latest scheme is so bad that even Barack Obama's onetime ethics chief says that it "sure looks like profiting off the presidency." 

And CNN is reporting on this outrage.

Overall the media response is still weak--after all, left-wing reporters were bellyaching about the emoluments clause in the US Constitution for four years during the Trump presidency. But it's not that the Trump Organization opened hotels, apartments, and condos after #45 was sworn. It has been in business for nearly 100 years.

Hunter just started painting.

14-year-old killed in Chicago Wednesday and at least 28 others wounded; three mass shootings on same day

Violence in Chicago is soaring, despite some ludricrous claims, such this one from a spokesman from Cook County's so-called prosecutor, Kim Foxx, who calls it "a misconception." 

Wednesday was brutal.

A 14-year-old was killed and 28 other people were wounded by gunfire in Chicago Wednesday as the city was hit by three mass shootings in a single day. 
The boy was shot along with four other people in North Lawndale shortly after 6 p.m. Minutes later, a few blocks away, five people were shot outside Theodore Herzl Elementary School. 
Shortly before midnight, 8 people traveling on a party bus were shot in Lincoln Park. At least 34 other shootings this year have wounded four or more people, according to a Sun-Times analysis of city data. Over the last five years, Chicago has recorded the most mass shootings in the nation by far, according to the Gun Violence Archive.

It's crisis.

Baby shot in head released from hospital, family moving out of city: "Chicago is the worst," mom, who was shot six years earlier, says

The good news--no, make that great news--is that the one-month-old baby has been discharged from the hospital after being shot earlier this month.

As for the family, they're quitting Chicago.

From Fox Chicago:
The one-month-old was one of seven people wounded in a mass shooting in Englewood on July 1.
Now, her family has had enough and they are moving out of Chicago.
Terriana Smith is the youngest gun violence victim this year and in recent memory. She is one of 212 kids, under the age of 17, shot this year alone.
"I'm getting out of here, today. I have to leave Chicago," said Terriana’s mother Tyeshia Banks. "I love this city, but I can’t stay anymore."
Six years ago Banks was also wounded in a shooting--one that occurred six blocks from the mass shooting site where her daughter was shot.

No one has been arrested for the July 1 mass shooting.

Media silent after Texas Dems test positive for COVID-19; Pelosi and White House staffer who met with them also tested positive

Had it been Republicans from Texas who spread COVID-19 after flying to Washington fleeing their responsibility to vote on the bill, MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times et. al. would be apolectic.

Six of these runaway leftists, who proudly flew maskless to the capital on a private jet, have tested postive for COVID

But because it is Democrats who are avoiding voting on a voter integrity bill, they are largely silent.

Meanwhile two staffers who met with the passengers from that airborne-plague ship, one from the White House and another from the office of Nancy Pelosi, have since tested positive for COVID-19.


Four wounded in Monday night Chicago mass shooting

And two hours earlier a 15-year-old girl was shot a few blocks away.

From Fox Chicago:

Four men were wounded in a shooting Monday in Homan Square on the West Side. They were outside about 9:15 p.m. in the 3300 block of West Flournoy Street when someone unleashed gunfire, Chicago police said.
A 47-year-old man was struck multiples times while another man, 22, was shot in the face, police said. Both were taken to Stroger Hospital, where the older man was in critical condition and the younger man was in good condition.
The third man, 43, was shot in the thigh and was also in good condition at St. Anthony Hospital, police said. A 46-year-old man who was also shot in the thigh was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

MLB All-Star game ratings down from 2019

I boycotted Tuesday's Major League Baseball All-Star Game because the sport's commissioner, Rob Manfred, kowtowed to the woke mob over Georgia's recently enacted voter integrity bill.

It appears I was not alone in finding something else to do.

From TV Line:

In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s coverage of the MLB All-Star Game averaged 6.76 million total viewers (per fast affiliates), down just a tick from the prelim numbers for the 2019 contest (7.1 mil), which went on to report an all-time low audience of 8.1 million in Nielsen finals.
NBC’s America’s Got Talent (6.77 mil/0.9 demo rating) was steady week-to-week, as was College Bowl (2.4 mil/0.4).
Over on The CW, The Flash (750K/0.2) dropped a handful of eyeballs, while Superman & Lois (850K/0.2) returned rock steady after a three-week break.
CBS’ Love Island (1.7 mil/0.3) equaled its second-best audience of the season while steady in the demo.
Becauses of the pandemic and the shortened 2020 MLB season there was no All-Star Game last season.

4 shot and 28 wounded Thursday in Chicago; 1-month-old shot in the head among victims in a mass shooting

Yesterday Chicago's police superintendant, David Brown, twisted June's crime numbers to show that violent crime is down in Chicago. CWB Chicago knocks Brown and the CPD brass down for their disingenuous victory dance.

July is off to a very bloody start in Chicago--and the usually violent July 4 weekend is upon us. 

Yesterday four people were shot to death in Chicago and at least 28 others were wounded. There was another mass shooting last night in Englewood on the South Side where a one-month-old baby was shot in the head. The baby is in critical condition while the six other victims are in good condition. Two weeks ago five people were killed and three wounded in another Englewood mass shooting. 

At least two other children were wounded  on the South Side on Thursday, an eight-year-old in Roseland in a shooting that killed one woman and wounded another, and 9-year-old girl in Grand Crossing, where a man was also shot.

Crime is out of control in Chicago, despite Brown's assurances otherwise. The ultimate blame of course belongs to Chicago's ideologue mayor, Lori Lightfoot.

But let's not let another ideologue, Cook County state's attorney Kim Foxx, off the hook. Her low-bail or no-bail policies are a contributor to Chicago's crime wave. 

In two years Illinois' no-cash-bail law goes into effect. Foxx, a leftist Democrat like Lightfoot, of course supports this law.

Yet another member of the Chicago City Council indicted

Austin street banners in her ward
in 2016
There are fifty members of the Chicago City Council--right now there are three under indictment. Ed Burke (14th Ward) and Patrick Daley Thompson (11th Ward) are two of them. 

Thompson, by the way, is the nephew of former mayor Richard M. Daley.

Carrie Austin of the 34th Ward is the latest one to, shall I say, draw the interest of the feds. 

Imagine you take a bus to work every day and there are fifty of you for the ride. Would you feel comfortable knowing three of your fellow commuters is under indictment? 

What about this fact--since 1973 over thirty Chicago aldermen--or alderpersons--have served time in federal prison. 

They're not much better then the city, but thank God I moved to the suburbs over two decades ago.

From NBC Chicago:

Chicago Ald. Carrie Austin and her Chief of Staff Chester Wilson Jr. are both facing federal bribery charges after they allegedly received home improvements and other materials from construction companies seeking city assistance for a project on the city’s Far South Side.
According to the indictment, a construction company undertook plans for a nearly $50 million residential development in Austin’s ward in 2014. Under an agreement with the city, the company was responsible for making various improvements within that project, and was eligible to receive more than $10 million in financing and payments from the city.
Beginning in 2016, the feds allege that Austin and Wilson were both provided with “personal benefits” by the owner of the company and other contractors in an effort to influence them in their official responsibilities. 
Austin allegedly received home improvements, furniture and appliances for her residence, while Wilson allegedly received home improvement materials and services for rental properties that he owns.

To summarize, the feds say they allegedly received bribes.

Austin's ward, which, contains the poverty-stricken and high-crime Roseland and West Pullman neighborhoods. In short, you might be able to say, they were shortchanging the poor.

Lightfoot says 99% of criticism she gets is because she's a black woman; black alderwoman disagrees

Chicago's soaring murder rate--as well as were weak response to two rounds of widespread looting and rioting last year are two valid reasons to criticize Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot. 

Thin-skinned and beholden to leftist, anti-cop ideology--she is not a competent mayor.

More from Fox Chicago:

A South Side alderwoman on Wednesday rejected Mayor Lori Lightfoot's claim that 99 percent of her critics are motivated by racism or sexism.
On WTTW's Chicago Tonight, the mayor said virtually all of the criticism she receives is because she is a Black woman.
"About 99 percent of it, Lightfoot said. "Look at my predecessors. Did people say that Rich Daley held tea sessions with people that he didn't disagree on? Rahm Emanuel was a polite guy who was a uniter? No. 
People of color are always held to a different standard." Mayor Lightfoot said she is being judged in ways her two previous white, male predecessors were not.
Jeanette Taylor, an Chicago City Council member who represents part of the violent Englewood neighborhood, called Lightfoot's claim "a copout." 

And in my opinion while Daley and Emanuel failed in their own ways, the pension bomb with the former and the Laquan McDonald killing and coverup in the latter, violent crime rates were much lower while they served as mayor.

5 killed and at least 72 others wounded over weekend in Chicago; there were two mass shootings Sunday night

Last week, after another bloody weekend where five people were shot to death and 47 others were wounded in Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot made the outrageous claim that violent crime was down in Chicago--but only compared from this June to last. 

At that time the number of shootings from this June to last June were slightly down. But again, at that time, shootings were up from 2020 and way up from 2019, the year Lightfoot was sworn in. 

What will Lightfoot say today? Because over this past weekend five people were shot to death and at least 72 others were wounded. That's 25 more shootings than last weekend. 

There were two mass shootings--both Sunday night on the South Side. One in Chicago Lawn where one person was killed and seven others wounded. The other, in South Shore, where one person was shot to death and five others wounded.

Oh, as I wrote yesterday for Da Tech Guy, Lightfoot is wrong about the root cause of rampant violence in Chicago.

Five fatally shot in Chicago over weekend and at least 47 wounded; woman stabbed to death Saturday afternoon downtown

Lori Lightfoot is doing what bad politicians do when they can't, or in the Chicago mayor's case, fix something. They deflect. In Lighweight's case, she won't find an effective way to combat rising violence in her city. She's beholden to leftist ideology.

Last week she declared racism a public health crisis. Meanwhile people keep shooting each other in Chicago and most of the victims are minorities. Over the past weekend five people were shot to death and at least 47 others were wounded. Of the fatalities two were in Humboldt Park on the Northwest Side, there was another killing on the Northwest Side in Bucktown. On the South Side a man was shot to death in Parkway Gardens and another man killed by a shooter in Back of the Yards on the Southwest Side. 

Liberals like Lightfoot always decry "gun violence." Never "gang violence" or even "violence." Their ulitmate goal is to ban private gun ownership. But people murder each even without guns. In the middle of the day Saturday a college grad student was stabbed to death downtown--that's an area where such violence was rare until a couple of years ago. 

Hmm...what happened two years ago? Oh, Lori Lightfoot was elected mayor.

Lightfoot lashes out at Chicago Bears, who are considering a move to suburbs

The ultimate responsibility of any government is to protect its citizens. But the city's murder rate is soaring--and in the past week there have been three mass shootings. Carjackings are skyrocketing too

So if a business doesn't feel safe in Chicago--or if feels the city is unsafe for its customers--it is likely to look elsewhere for a home. 

So it is with the Chicago Bears who have placed a bid to purchase Arlington International Racecourse in northwest suburban Arlington Heights even though they have lease at Soldier Field on Chicago's Lakefront until 2033. 

Bears president Ted Phillips says they plan to "explore every possible option" in regards to a home. Chicago's unhinged mayor, who is beholden to leftist ideologies that makes her incapable to addressing Chicago's crime wave, predictably lashed out at the Bears, who have called Chicago home for 100 years. "And like most Bears fans, we want the organization to focus on putting a winning team on the field," the Ohio native said, "beating the Packers finally, and being relevant past October. Everything else is just noise."

What a petulant child.

Lightfoot needs to retool her mindset and focus on protecting Chicagoans.

Lori Lightfoot, the unhinged mayor of Chicago, is running out of excuses for the rise in shootings. As the lockdown is finally over she'll have to find another excuse. Of course Lightfoot, a hardened leftist, is incabable of finding fault with her failing policies. 

Two years ago a day like Tuesday--with eight people shot to death and at least 19 wounded--would be a weekend violence total. Now it's a weekday daily tally.

There were two mass shootings on Tuesday. In Englewood on the South Side four people were killed and four others were wounded yesterday morning. Last night in West Garfield Park on the West Side four people were wounded in a mass shooting. Over the last five days there have been three mass shootings in Chicago.

On Saturday nine people were wounded--and a woman was killed--in a mass shooting in the Chatham neigbhorhood, which is east of Englewood.

Three people shot to death and eighteen wounded in Chicago on Monday; Lightfoot exposed as unhinged

The weekend ended but the carnage continued in Chicago. Three people were shot to death yesterday, two on the South Side and one on the Southwest Side, and at least 18 others were wounded. 

Chicago's murder rate has skyrocketed since Lori Lightfoot became mayor two years ago.

Late last week, courtesty of a Freedom of Information request, we learned that the city's failed mayor, channeled Jack Nicholson in the movie The Shining by writing in an email, "I need office time every day!" sixteen successive times. Office time is Lightfoot's quiet time. "That’s typically a less structured part of the day when the mayor can think, write or make long-term plans," the Chicago Tribune's Gregory Pratt writes.

Lightfoot is clearly not able to handle the job as Chicago's mayor. At the very least she should announce that she will not run for a second term. Actually, an even better response would be to resign.

Inflation is back thanks to the reckless spending of Joe Biden and the Democrats.

From CNBC:
Consumer prices for May accelerated at their fastest pace in nearly 13 years as inflation pressures continued to build in the U.S. economy, the Labor Department reported Thursday.
The consumer price index, which represents a basket including food, energy, groceries, housing costs and sales across a spectrum of goods, rose 5% from a year ago. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been expecting a gain of 4.7%.
The reading represented the biggest CPI gain since the 5.3% increase in August 2008, just before the worst of the financial crisis sent the U.S. spiraling into the worst recession it had seen since the Great Depression.

It has been 76 days since Harris was chosen to lead the White House response to the border crisis.

It is a pity that we have to ask this question. But ask we must.


5 dead at at least 53 others wounded, including an 11-year-old girl, in Chicago over weekend

This past weekend was brutal in Chicago. Five people were shot to death and least 53 other people were wouned, including an 11-year-old girl in the West Pullman neighborhood on the South Side.

Not too far away there was a mass shooting in the Burnside neighborhood where eight people were wounded.

After Memorial Day weekend police superintendant David Brown was patting himself on the back because shootings were down from previous Memorial Day weekends. 

He won't be doing so today.

Confused Joe Biden claims "COVID deaths are up" (they’re not)

Squinty Joe said in his tortured explanation about the latest jobs numbers--which are bad--that COVID-19 deaths are up. No, they're down.


May jobs report falls short of expectations

The Joe Biden economy continues to disappoint. 

From Fox Business:

U.S. employers added fewer than expected jobs last month as extended unemployment benefits encouraged workers to stay home.
Employers added 559,000 jobs in May, the Labor Department said Friday, missing the addition of 650,000 jobs that analysts surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting. April’s reading was revised higher by 12,000 to 278,000.
The unemployment rate, meanwhile, declined 0.3 percentage points to 5.8%, its lowest since the pandemic caused businesses to shut their doors in March 2020.
Despite the gains, the U.S. economy has 7.6 million, or 5%, fewer workers from its February 2020 pre-pandemic level.

Biden blunders again, thinks he’s been president for ’15 months’

Joe Biden has been president for almost five months, not 15 as he says here. 

 Perhaps Biden is confusing himself with Zachary Taylor, who was president for just 16 months in the 1850s.

Oklahoma names portion of highway after Trump

I've been to this part of Oklahoma--the panhandle is underrated. And now I have another reason to visit.

From The Hill:

The Hill Former President Trump is set to have a portion of an Oklahoma highway named after him with a new bill signed into law by Gov. Kevin Stitt (R).

The bill designates a section of State Highway 287 from Oklahoma's Boise City southeast to the Oklahoma-Texas border as "President Donald J. Trump Highway." 

Lawmakers removed a previous provision in the legislation, first proposed in the Oklahoma state Senate, that required a person be deceased for three years before a portion of the highway can be named after them.

Illinois General Assembly passes bill to make Juneteenth its thirteenth paid holiday for state workers

How many paid holidays do you get each year?

If you work--or perform what passes for work--in as a state of Illinois employee you get twelve. Soon it will be thirteen as Governor JB Pritzker, a Democrat, won't pass up an opportunity for virtue signaling. 

Yes, of course slavery was evil and the end of it in America, brought about by the Union army of which two of my ancestors served in, should  be celebrated. 

But Illinois, because of its out-of-control pension debt, is bankrupt-in-name-only. Taxpayers can't afford another paid day off for state workers. 

More from ABC Chicago:
Illinois is closer to making Juneteenth a state holiday.

Legislation making June 19 a paid day off for all state employees and a school holiday was unanimously approved by the Illinois House last week and by the state Senate last month. It states that if June 19 falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the holiday will be observed the following Monday. The measure would take effect immediately if Gov. J.B. Pritzker signs it.

Juneteenth commemorates the date in 1865 when the last enslaved Black people in the U.S. learned from Union soldiers in Texas that they were free, more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. The day is also known as Emancipation Day and Freedom Day.

3 dead and at least 29 others wounded over Memorial Day weekend in Chicago

Summer traditionally begins on Memorial Day weekend--and the warmest season is also the deadliest in Chicago. 

Days off were cancelled for Chicago police officers and they were placed on 12-hour shifts. 

Over this holiday weekend three people were shot to death and at least 29 others wounded. 

But over the year shootings are up 36 percent over 2020. 

As for police-involved shootings in 2021 according to Hey Jackass! there have been three people shot to death and six others wounded.

Yes, there is hope for America.
