Chicago saw a dramatic increase in homicides and shootings in the first seven months of 2020 and a particularly remarkable increase in July, reflecting a growing trend in the U.S. that raised questions about potential police reform in major cities.Data released on Saturday showed that Chicago saw 440 homicides between January 2020 through the end of June, a 52 percent increase from the same time period last year (which saw 290 homicides). Shooting victims similarly increased by 51 percent (1,480 to 2,240) and shooting incidents themselves rose 47 percent (from 1,210 to 1,783).Crime tends to increase during summers, but recent events have fueled unrest in the U.S.

It's Trump's fault. Don't ask me to explain, Orange Man - BAD. It has nothing to do with rioters or mayhem or lack of police funding, all Orange Man's fault. - Lori

Ya know that land that BO wants for his presidential center? The land will be of greater value if the land is used as a cemetery for all the dead in Chicago.

Someone made a comment that I hadn't noticed. Instead of homicides for the week, Chicago has only been reporting 'weekend' homicides. How come gun controled cities have the most homicides ? Oh, never mind, we all know.

It's not a "growing trend in the U.S." just in democrat-run major cities who have made it clear that they want no federal assistance, Just Send Money. My community had the same number of shootings this year as last year, Zero, and you would have to look hard to find a home without at least one gun in it. Lightfoot, Frey, Durkan, Wheeler, Bowser, Bottoms, de Blasio all are delusional BLM supporters who are looking for millions of dollars to rebuild the damage that they allowed their out-of-control savages to cause. We all understand what they mean by "transfer money to community services," the same old handouts that have been getting democrats elected for decades.

Being the worst mayor in the history of mayors, Lightfoot is possibly the worst administrator that has ever been elected to any position. She is so completely incompetent that all she can do is deflect blame away from herself. It looks like she intentionally is trying to destroy the city. How is that defunding the Police doing for you Lori? Keep up the good work, I'm sure that George Soros is proud of you.

More of the same will get us more of the same. The problem isn't too many guns, and the solution isn't more free stuff. If availability of guns was the cause of crime, places like Wyoming and Montana would have the highest crime rates. No, the problem is RAT policies. More resources will make it worse.

Those black lives don't matter. Were they killed by cops? No? See. No problem. Just bury them somewhere. No Black Lives Matter except the 8 thus far this year who were killed in police custody. And they were supremely important. Besides, we have already lost Seattle, Portland, and Minneapolis. Anarchy already reigns in those cities.

Rush Limbaugh has been saying for weeks that Joe Biden would skip the presidential debates in the fall. Now former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart has taken to CNN.com to argue Biden should skip it, in an article headlined "Joe Biden could still lose this election." On Saturday, Michael Smerconish put him on TV to make the case, and quoted from it: "Whatever you do, don't debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post.

Iran over the weekend sanctioned a former top White House National Security Council member who helped drive President Donald Trump’s maximum pressure campaign against Tehran. Richard Goldberg, an aide to former White House national security adviser John Bolton who spearheaded the administration’s economic sanctions on Iran, was sanctioned by Tehran for what Iranian leaders called "economic terrorism" against the country. The new actions mark another escalation in the Islamic Republic’s tit-for-tat sanction war with America.

President Trump seems determined to sow confusion and chaos ahead of the 2020 election. Laurence Tribe says the president is trying to make the election ‘look chaotic’ and mentions a ‘fail safe’: President Nancy Pelosi. "There is a procedure -- it's a very elaborate procedure -- in every state for resolving disputes by the date of the so-called safe harbor on December 8th," Tribe explained. "So, really, all of the efforts that Trump is making to both pretend that he can extend the date of the election, which everyone understands he can't do that. That date is set at November 3rd by act of Congress."

On Aug. 1, 1945, 12-year-old Hideko Sudo went to bed fully clothed and full of worry. For days, air raid alerts had left the coastal city of Toyama on edge, prompting her school's closure. More alarmingly, earlier that day, American planes had rained down leaflets warning of an imminent attack. Hideko's fears proved well-founded. Despite a sophisticated alert system and a decade of air defense drills, the arrival just after midnight of a wave of B-29 bombers plunged Toyama into chaos. Superfortresses — 173 of them — encountered only sparse antiaircraft fire as they released around 1,500 tons of incendiaries onto the city's center.

Twitter users jumped on the Epstein-Clinton connection, however, particularly in the context of the media trying to bury the story because it reflects poorly on Clinton specifically and Democrats generally.

President Trump has been speaking out against mail-in voting for weeks now. Democrats know it is easier to cheat and steal votes when a state moves to mail-in voting. It’s the reason Nevada Democrats on Saturday passed mail-in voting and ballot harvesting in their special session just 97 days before the national election. They know it’s easier to cheat that way. President Trump posted this video earlier this week that shows how corrupt and flawed the mail-in voting process is in America today. [Video] But Marco Rubio sided with Democrats today. During a phone call with President Trump Marco told listeners he was not concerned about mail-in voting in Florida.

Former national security adviser Susan Rice would be a “human lightning rod” if selected to be Democrat Joe Biden’s running mate, a Washington Post columnist wrote Friday. Rice, who is reported to be among shrinking list of Biden vice presidential contenders, has the advantage of a longstanding close relationship with Biden, unlike any of the other names on the list. But Biden's want for “familiarity and comfort” are luxuries the nation doesn’t have time for in this singular time of crisis, Post columnist Dana Milbank writes. Despite Rice’s impressive resume -- Rhodes scholar, Oxford, U.N ambassador, national security adviser -- she has serious Benghazi baggage

Originally set for August 1, the announcement now won’t come before August 10, according to the New York Post. Biden’s pick is going to be a woman unless Biden breaks his vow from last March, and she’s probably going a “woman of color.” Given the realities of the American political landscape, that’s a short list of potential running mates.
