CHICAGO — Widespread damage is reported throughout Chicago after looting and rioting began around midnight Monday. Witnesses report hundreds of people smashing their way into stores throughout Michigan Avenue, areas in the South Loop and the near North Side. WGN’s Judy Wang was on the scene early and reported seeing people filling trash bags with merchandise. She also saw crowd trashing the streets outside the stores and turning over garbage cans.

Comments:

*WGN Web Desk, Associated Press Another fine example of “Democratic” governance. AG Barr is right, Democrats want power so badly they would tear down the system to get it.

Black female mayor Black police chief Black onbudsmen Black inner-city teachers 1/2 Black POTUS (eight long years!” Black 1st lady Majority millionaire black athletes in all the thug-balls Majority blacks in all lower government offices None of the above made any a dent in anti-social black behaviors. I looked at Africa as it is today. I see it as a model for what’s coming to us if they ever get complete control of this country. May God grant me an early exit from this planet!

Looks like Chicago’s dark age “communities” made their presence known again last night. The precedent has now been set now for those “communities”, upon any future racially based manufactured excuse to perpetrate similar looting. Wised up business owners will now move a lot of those looted businesses outside the city limits of Chicago leaving the past so-called Miracle Mile into an abandoned Miserable Mile.

Any business that reopens after being looted twice in a few months is terminally stupid.

Even Politico is trying to blame this on white folks who are trying to sow insurrection, when this is all democrat party owned. Well maybe they are right, for democrat leadership does tend to be all white. Though they try to hide that. BLM is a leftist, marxist and socialist mob right now, and they just want to destroy everything.

posted too soon. Lest we forget, there is no way on earth any democrat was going to be able to stop all of this destruction, thanks to the previous mayor, Rahm 'Tiny Dancer' Emmanuel. He left enough destruction in his wake, thanks to Obama, so that there is no way this could be solved by a democrat.

"Democrats always achieve the opposite of their stated goals." That's one of the rules a local fellow came up with in PA. Still, that is changing. Liberal goalsare main the same, but instead of lying about it, they're boasting about it. Which is why you have Chicago, among others.

One of the top stories in today's Chicago Tribune: Kim Foxx drops more felony cases as Cook County state’s attorney than her predecessor, Tribune analysis shows. (It's behind a paywall so no link) The looting won't stop until Kim Foxx is replaced, replaced by someone who isn't a Soros puppet.

Unfortunately the leftist Governors and Mayors who are now running the Democrat States where the rioting has been taking place and other budding politicians of the same Marxist persuasion are the people who one by one are going to be knocking out the old corrupt liberal Democrat politicians like Biden as they take over and redirect the Democrat Party into Marxist and socialism. Notice that the new wave of socialist and Marxist Democrats are essentially allied with Communist China and Cuba that are Marxist countries, and not Russia that is no longer a Communist or socialist country that has turned into a gangster run place looking to make as much money for the Russian oligarchs as possible.

The Community's claim to fame: their ancestors were slaves, most not bothering to travel more than 50 miles away after having been freed. They're the only component in the USA Diversity stew to complain endlessly about how discrimination keeps them down, their social problems are legendary (rates of felony convictions, unwed births, failure to achieve educationally), and they happily turn violent at the slightest provocation. Seems Abe Lincoln was right about bLACK people all along.

Speaking to CNN’s Dana Bash, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the vice presidential running mate of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, claimed that Trump may muzzle scientific experts and that the president was acting out of desperation. “Do you trust that in the situation that we’re in now that public health experts and scientists will get the last word on the efficacy of a vaccine?” Bash asked.

President Trump, who wouldn’t have won had it not been for the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, has now ensured that a major part of his legacy is in the judiciary. Having appointed nearly a third of all circuit judges — a record 30 in his first two years, about the same as Bush and Obama combined at that point in their presidencies, and 50 in three (where Obama had 55 in two terms) — he has also had back-to-back Supreme Court picks. And Justices Ginsburg (87), Breyer (82), and Thomas (72) aren’t getting any younger. (Snip)a president has few constitutional powers more important than picking judges.

The 41-minute documentary, “Riding the Dragon: The Bidens’ Chinese Secrets,” is produced and hosted by author and investigative journalist Peter Schweizer, who has received critical acclaim for his previous works investigating the political elite. His last film was 2015’s “Clinton Cash,” which similarly documented the numerous ways in which Bill and Hillary Clinton profited off of their time in public life.
