President Biden was met at O’Hare International Airport Wednesday by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot following a deadly Independence Day weekend in the Windy City. The president was greeted by Lightfoot and Illinois’ Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker as he arrived in Chicago but he didn’t focus much time on the more than 100 shootings over the holiday as it was just a quick stop for him en route to suburban McHenry County for an event touting his Build Back Better initiative. According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Biden reiterated his commitment to working with Lightfoot and city leaders to counter gun violence


It's not "gun violence", it's gang violence that is destroying Chicago.

Trump offered federal troops, the FBI, Border Patrol, and others - all of which were declined, and then this incompetent carpetbagger has the audacity to blame the continuing violence on 4 years of inaction by the White House.

The only thing which Xiden could do will never be done - turn off the welfare spigot and force all of the gangbangers to get jobs in order to survive. Then they’d be too tired to be out shooting at 2am and might just earn a bit of self respect.

Dear Ms Beetlejuice, The violence in your city is gang related turf wars over the distribution of illegal narcotics. You are unable to prevent those drugs from infiltrating your city; What makes you believe you can prevent the tools of the gang's trade from entering as well? You know the truth but you are another dim gun grabber using that excuse to disarm the law abiding who only wish to use their God given Constitutional right to defend themselves. Czech out

She should ask Philippine President Duarte for help. He's neutralizing all gang members and suspected drug pushers, users, and couriers on the spot without trials. A draconian policy by U.S. standard, but refreshing and it might work.

Help? Why? These are amoral feral blacks and until that savage culture is somehow addressed, nothing will change. Murder after murder and nobody on the left really gives a damn. I used to care but if the black community is so feckless and ignorant about the slaughter in their neighborhoods then let them have at it.

Biden is not going to do anything to rile up leftist and socialist Democrat Black ghetto voters, except claim that all the so-called gun violence in the Democrat run inner-cities is being perpetrated by mythical “White Supremacists” and the way to handle that is to confiscate firearms from “White Supremacists” who reside in places like Idaho and Montana!

Hospitals across the country have been flooded with babies with a potentially-deadly respiratory virus. Wellington has recorded 46 children hospitalised with respiratory illnesses including respiratory syncytial virus - also known as RSV. RSV is a common respiratory illness and in adults only produces very mild symptoms but for young children, it can make them extremely ill or even be fatal. Doctors have warned New Zealand's outbreak is likely due to children not developing immunity to other viruses suppressed by Covid lockdowns.

Chicago   — A veteran mail carrier is fed up and speaking out – exposing the behind-the-scenes issues affecting mail delivery. (Snip) The carrier, who wants to remain anonymous, believes the severe USPS staffing shortage is partially due to the emergency federal employee leave enacted this year – which gives postal workers up to 600 hours of paid leave for COVID-related reasons. That’s right, 600 hours – roughly four months of paid time off if employees qualify. “There’s rumors that people that’s using that COVID leave don’t need it,” the carrier said. And that’s not all. The carrier said his supervisor told him package delivery is now a priority over first-class mail.

As we expected, the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) issued its revised guidelines on stem cells and embryo experiments at the end of May 2021, and as expected, the ISSCR recommendations are rife with proposed experiments on young human beings. The new guidelines discard the 14-day limit on human embryo experiments in favor of no limits whatsoever, and they allow virtually unrestricted manufacture of human-animal chimeras of any type, as well as creation of genetically altered human embryos and lab constructed human embryo “models.” Very little is left in the category of “currently not permitted.”
