‘It Was a Planned Attack.’ Chicago Mayor
Lori Lightfoot Says Looting Was Organized

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 8/13/2020 4:32:02 AM

A day after looters smashed-in retailer’s windows, carried away loads of high-end merchandise and overwhelmed police officers in downtown Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot says the violence was an organized raid and not a demonstration of angry protest. “When people showed up on Michigan Avenue in the downtown area with U-Haul trucks and cargo vans, and sophisticated equipment used to cut metal, and the methods that were used, and how quickly it got spun up… that wasn’t any spontaneous reaction,” Lightfoot told TIME in her fifth-floor offices at Chicago’s City Hall on Tuesday.

Psssstttt... Hey Lori. I have a clue for you. This was all planned. All of it. This was all planned and executed as a get put5 the vote exercise by democrats. Its exactly why YOU and your fellow democrats have yet to condem the violence, rioting and looting. Its also why the media has largely stopped reporting on your "peacefull protests", because its starting to backlash. And its also why the media fails to point out that most of antifa are white kids. Its also why most of the media dont report on the stockpiles of rioting supplies strategically placed. But you knew that, didnt you? Your just acting surprised because the democrat created monster has turned on its creator.

Organized, and well financed. Who paid for the sophisticated tools that enabled looters to cut metal grates, bypass security systems, and quickly remove cash registers and ATMs? Certainly not welfare dependent looters. I suspect a sophisticated network of Soros, BLM goons organized, trained and paid the criminal gangs. The looters were well prepared, eager for the green light.

Apparently, Lori woke up and realized she had drifted off the road. After dreaming it was a peaceful protest (how many times has THAT been?) She jersey awake and steered (temporarily) back onto the road everyone else is using... ... how unfortunate. Classy, if like Sleepy Joe, you're in to Dementia and other malfunctions.

Lightfoot is upset because they stole from minority owned businesses but not very upset that they stole from the big stores. This statement alone proves that she is not fit for office. She it completely on board with the entire BLM reparations narrative if they would only stick it to the rich.

Mayor Lori only seems to be worried about minority owned businesses and employees. She doesn't care about the big businesses like Nordstrom or Coach because they uh ave insurance. She will care when the giant square foot stores close and there are lots of giant empty stores to go along with the s empty small storefronts. Imagine Watertower Place empty or Navy Pier shut down for good because you don't care about the bigger businesses.

The mayor prefers unorganized hapless thieves, who stumble upon a store and decide to rob, without prior planning! Here is another tip for her. The stores left untouched in a block might be the ones laundering the cartel's drug money.

'Last to Know' Lori... Riots occurring across the United States at the same time are not spontaneous. They are organized by BLM and Antifa. They themselves admit it. The Mayor of Chicago isn't very bright or honest, is she? Sadly, she is a reflection of the people that elected her. This is what the people of Chicago wanted, and they got it. Now they will have to live with it. As the productive people empty out of Chicago, the city will turn into a giant junkyard, and Lori will be its Queen. The people that stay behind will be happy with that.

Common sense will tell you that the particular Chicago looting and rioting was designed and planned by BLM using social media to change the so-called “Miracle Mile” shopping district into just another Miserable Mile as we have seen after criminal and anti-social Black rioting, looting, and burning down businesses for decades all over the country. That is clearly evidenced by what happened quickly on the ground as caravans of motor vehicles including U-Haul vehicles arrived at the shopping center with the looters to carry away the looted merchandise in a semi-organized manner. Following that organized criminal activity BLM leaders came out in public claiming that the looting was justified because Black lives matter more then the high end businesses located in that shopping district that sell high end fashion items and other merchandise to wealthy people. Going on claiming that hungry Black people have a right to loot such businesses and steal merchandise such as Air Jordan athletic shoes that cost hundreds of dollars a pair, but selling those shoes is only viable because the Black “community” serves as a retail market for those exorbitantly priced shoes as a social status symbol in the Black “community”. In Black “community” jargon such looting is considered to be “Good Trouble” as part of the seemingly dark age anti-social philosophy that is commonly practiced in degenerate ghetto culture. Common sense will tell you that such rioting and looting is only going to get worse in the Democrat run inner cities the coming months, and maybe out to the suburbs, as the leftist and liberal Democrats with a wink and a nod, BLM, and the Antifa type anarchists continue to try to cow enough Americans to vote for the ultra leftist Biden-Harris ticket in the November election.

The Chicago deep state must have told Lighthead the riots are costing the dims a lot of votes and that the dim candidates are falling way behind. Similar to how the Portland deep state told Mayor Ted Wheeler to start cleaning up his mess.

In the article, you find Arabic and Polish names of shopkeepers. They have put their whole lives into their businesses. And their lives are being destroyed by BLM. These are not the alleged WASPs (White, Anglo-Saxon Protestants) that the BLM leader claims them to be. No. They are of immigrant families. (Actually all of us are of immigrant families unless we are completely Native American.) I support black folks. I believe in black folks. I love black folks. I support them, believe in them, and love them because they are made in the image and likeness of God -- and so are all other sorts of folks. But BLM isn't about treating people right. It is about criminal activity and communism -- which are the same thing, IMO. That Ariel witch from BLM can rot in hell as far as I am concerned.

Towing the cars that were used in the rioting is a good start but most of the cars were likely either stolen or were being bought on credit so the loan companies will pay for much of this tactic.

This is reminiscent of how Soros spent his teen years in Nazi controlled territory. He'd rat on the local jersey, then pick over their things while the Gestapo hauled them off to the concentration camps. He seemed quite proud of this, in a talk show interview he had and couldn't understand why everyone was upset with his monstrousness. He doesn't talk about that, these days, but I'm sure he remembers it.

Well, duh. All she had to do was watch what happened in West Los Angeles and Santa Monica to know that the looting has been and will continue to be organized. Those of us who watched it on TV didn’t need someone to explain it as we saw cars lined up, waiting to pull up in front of a store and pick up either merchandise brought out or a looter carrying merchandise. They’d pull away; another car would pull up. And on and on.

The only thing Chicago ran was the riots last week, and you see how that turned out. NOW she's getting yappy and getting in Kim Foxx' face. She's trying to save face. Trump/Pence '20

In time-honored mainstream media fashion, the Associated Press does its best to downplay President Trump’s brokering a mutual recognition pact between Israel and the United Arab Emirates by calling it a “rare diplomatic win.” (Hello, AP, have you missed that Trump is the first president in decades to negotiate successfully with Communist China, by far our most significant adversary?) Nevertheless, this “win,” such as it is, could be of considerable importance not only to Israel but to the international community, the part of it, anyway, that is in favor of world peace.

Joe Biden has been in the public eye for close to 50 years. His record over that time is dismal, but for some reason he has usually gotten a pass. “Good old Joe” has broken every rule in the book without suffering serious consequences. To be sure, his prior presidential runs crashed and burned when a few aspects of his gross dishonesty came to light, but his dishonorable career continued nevertheless. Biden has feathered his nest for decades, in part by selling his influence to foreign powers, as in the case of Ukraine’s Burisma, not to mention his more worrisome Chinese connections. This would seem to be a serious offense,

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.

Thursday’s announcement of a “historic peace agreement” between Israel and the United Arab Emirates — the first deal to normalize relations between Israel and an Arab nation brokered by the U.S. in over a quarter-century — is more evidence that President Trump is the first president in a long time to get U.S. Middle East policy more right than wrong. Under the agreement, Israel and the UAE will establish “full normalization of relations,” including diplomatic relations with the opening of embassies, trade, tourism, direct flights and other agreements. The only two other Arab nations that have diplomatic relations with Israel are Egypt and Jordan.

For Joe Biden, life is looking pretty sweet right now. After stumbling badly in the first three Democratic-primary contests, he mounted arguably the fastest and most surprising comeback in U.S. political history. He’s ahead in both national and swing-state polling against Trump. Most of the media are offering hosannas for his selection of Kamala Harris. Next week, Joe Biden will formally accept the Democratic nomination, up against a president who has a self-destructive streak wider and deeper than the Mississippi River. For Biden, these days may be as good as it gets. As November approaches, he will have a tougher time campaigning almost entirely via Zoom

A day after looters smashed-in retailer’s windows, carried away loads of high-end merchandise and overwhelmed police officers in downtown Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot says the violence was an organized raid and not a demonstration of angry protest. “When people showed up on Michigan Avenue in the downtown area with U-Haul trucks and cargo vans, and sophisticated equipment used to cut metal, and the methods that were used, and how quickly it got spun up… that wasn’t any spontaneous reaction,” Lightfoot told TIME in her fifth-floor offices at Chicago’s City Hall on Tuesday.

The number of new coronavirus cases reported daily in the U.S. is decreasing. Late last month, the number of such cases exceeded 70,000 many days. Lately, the number has been more like 55,000 cases and we haven’t exceeded 70,000 since July 31. (Except as otherwise indicated by a link, all numbers here are from Worldometer.) One would expect the number of daily deaths attributed to the virus to reflect the level of new cases from about a month ago. Thus, it’s not surprising that we haven’t seen the daily death count decrease yet. That number is holding steady in the 1,250-1,500 range, except on weekends when the reported number

A day after looters smashed-in retailer’s windows, carried away loads of high-end merchandise and overwhelmed police officers in downtown Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot says the violence was an organized raid and not a demonstration of angry protest. “When people showed up on Michigan Avenue in the downtown area with U-Haul trucks and cargo vans, and sophisticated equipment used to cut metal, and the methods that were used, and how quickly it got spun up… that wasn’t any spontaneous reaction,” Lightfoot told TIME in her fifth-floor offices at Chicago’s City Hall on Tuesday.

Several soccer fans out of a crowd of about 3,000 in attendance booed and chanted “USA!” at an MLS game Wednesday night at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas between FC Dallas and Nashville SC as players and refs knelt in unison for the playing of the national anthem before the game. In a post-game press conference, Dallas star Reggie Cannon went off on fans for chanting “USA!” and booing the players, calling the fans “disgusting” and whining that his team has been through “absolute hell” the past six months because of the pandemic. Cannon ranted for over two minutes about the booing of the players for kneeling in support

Crime, taxes, disease, and an anti-science approach to social distancing have chased a number of big retailers and restaurateurs out of New York forever, reports the far-left New York Times. “In the heart of Manhattan, national chains including J.C. Penney, Kate Spade, Subway and Le Pain Quotidien have shuttered branches for good,” per the Times, which adds other big box retailers, like Victoria’s Secret and the Gap, have chosen to reopen in other states while their Manhattan locations remain shuttered. On top of that, Victoria’s Secret, which had been paying $937,000 a month in rent, is no longer paying that rent.

Wisconsin’s state government is forcing government employees to wear masks while at home alone during Zoom meetings. Yes, you read that correctly … Even if you are in your own home. Even if you are in your own home alone (not that that should matter), the fascist Democrats who now run the Wisconsin state government are forcing employees to wear masks during online meetings: In an email to employees sent out on July 31, the head of Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources not only reminded employees of Gov. Tony Evers’ mask order going into effect on Aug. 1, he also said that every DNR employee must wear a mask …

Celebrity activist Jamie Lee Curtis says she’s worried that President Trump’s supporters may steal the 2020 election by making off with United States Postal Service trucks. The “Halloween” star left Twitter users confused on Tuesday after peddling a conspiracy theory of enormous size and scope. “I swear, in broad daylight, the driver of the red truck had a red cap on with white letters,” she tweeted nearly 560,000 fans while attaching an image of a damaged USPS vehicle. “Conspiracy? Outright attempt at stealing the election by denying the access of the @USPS ? Let’s not let it happen! @JoeBiden.”

Prominent Democratic donor George Soros called President Donald Trump “dangerous” and asserted that Trump would do “anything to stay in power,” in a wide-ranging interview Tuesday with Italian newspaper La Repubblica. The 90-year-old Hungarian-American and billionaire philanthropist told La Repubblica that Trump is a “confidence trickster” who unexpectedly won the 2016 U.S. election and was inadvertently working to “undermine democracy from within,” per a translation of the interview on George Soros’ website. (Tweet) Soros added that Trump was a mere “transitory phenomenon” suggesting that his ascension to power was an anomalous four-year period in U.S. history

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.

In an interview with WGN News on Wednesday, FOP President John Catanzara said he wants federal help to prosecute anyone who steps on the expressway. State police say they will protect the rights of those seeking to peacefully protest while ensuring the safety of the public, and released the following statement:

Kamala Harris Slept Her Way Up

It is no secret but public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way up into California political life by being a very public escort and mattress for California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown. Willie Brown is 30 years older than Harris and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. With Joe Biden’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years. Of almost equally significant concern is what Harris represents to hard-working women across the country who devote years to their careers
