Chicago announces COVID lockdown advisory, as Dems push for similar measures across the country

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced a new 30-day stay-at-home advisory she believes will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 cases as a resurgence of the virus is happening in Illinois, as well as other states. The ‘stay at home’ advisory is expected to begin on Monday, she said on Thursday.

Still, the hypocrisy of Lightfoot and other Democrats is astounding.

It’s almost a daily event in Chicago and little is done to help mitigate the spread of gang violence in a city overwhelmed by tragedy. It’s not

According to the FBI crime report, there have been 335 murders reported in Chicago from January to June 2020, a huge increase from the 244 murders tallied during that time period a year ago. Arson in Chicago is up even more: a 52.9% increase from 2019. These numbers have also increased significantly in the past several months as we head into the final month of the year.

Lightfoot, a Democrat, is emboldened by the media’s President Elect Joe Biden, who is making a lockdown part of his first priority as President in January, he announced. At a news conference Thursday afternoon she said the city would also be imposing other restrictions on gatherings and public activities.

She said she “calls on all Chicagoans to follow clear measures to protect their community and help us flatten the curve.”

Democrats talk about flattening the curve of COVID-19 but in comparison are eerily silent on violence in their cities. For instance, just look at Lightfoot’s city of Chicago, where children are often caught in the crossfire of gangland style killings. Those crimes waves have increased and the residents are left to pick up the pieces.

She noted Thursday that “Chicago has reached a critical point in the second surge of COVID-19, demanding that we undertake this multi-faceted and comprehensive effort to stop the virus in its tracks.”

I say OK, I don’t want to see the virus resurge to critical levels but put the same passion in taking care of the people of Chicago and protecting innocent children from the gangs that have taken control of certain areas of Lightfoot’s city.

I’m actually more concerned about the moral decay, lack of hope and failure of Chicago’s politicians to actually do something for the people of their city.

These lockdowns will do nothing more than increase poverty, despair and hopelessness. Remember at the beginning of the year, when the medical experts got Americans to buy into the 15 days to flatten the curve, which eventually turned into months and economic disparity.

Many people lost their businesses and moreover, Americans lost their rights. Also, ask yourself this question: Doesn’t Pfizer have a vaccine ready to distribute that they allege is 90 percent effective based on phase three of the trials?

If that’s so why are so many Democrats, including Biden pushing for lockdowns? They didn’t bother saying anything about the celebrations in the streets after the election? Didn’t bother pointing out the dangers of spreading the violence when riots and protests swept the streets of America this summer?

These Democrats, in fact, have politicized this epidemic as a means of targeting President Donald Trump. They have done so with a vengeance and at the expense of the American people.

I worry we’re just at the beginning of this new experiment in socialized Democracy and the use of fear over COVID-19 – combined with the help of a complicit media – is the weapon they will use to quickly erode our freedom.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
