Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot pleaded with Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday to send Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents to the city for six months after the city reaches a 25-year high in the number of murders. The woke mayor announced at a news conference in Garfield Park on Monday that she made a formal request to Garland to send ATF agents to Chicago for six months, a well as more federal prosecutors and federal marshals to help get illegal guns off the streets. This comes after the democrat proposed slashing $80 million from the Chicago Police Department budget in 2020 during 'defund the police' protests.


Cutting back on police and court costs and incarceration allows Chicago politicians to pocket that much more money, but now that the subjects are complaining, it's up to the rest of Failed America to bail them out so they can keep wasting and stealing money on the local level. Isn't this what America is all about? Keep the profits, and push the losses onto others.

ATF? Why? Are they going to go in the streets and killing field to see if all the firearms are legally purchased and registered? The only thing the ATF can do is go all out Waco, David Corish burning the murdering punks out they are good at doing that.

I cannot believe that no one is pointing out the most outrageous fact-- Lightfoot demeaned and rejected an offer of extra law enforcement forces from President Trump. And was congratulated by liberals for her "brave defiance." She and the people who elected her -- believe it or not, she was considered the moderate in the race -- can do without my tax dollars now.

Defund ATF. Defund the police. Increase funding and bail money for Antifa and BLM. Praise and encourage looters and anarchists. Do nothing and say nothing about black-on-black gun violence. Destroy Dr MLK's philosophy and increase racism as much as possible. Should work just fine.

Stop and frisk was taking 2500 guns off Chicago streets a month, cops would step out and guns would go flying, they'd just pick them up off the ground and call that a "Win", rather than tie them to anyone in the group of individuals they stopped to talk to. The Program/practice was "Cancelled" instead they have to fill out a 7 page form for EVERYONE they even talk to. More than half of all Chiraq shooters AND Victims have prior gun arrests, many plea bargained away rather than tried. Over 25% of both shooters AND Victims have more than three gun priors. Cops and Politicians, as well as prosecutors and Judges KNOW who the bad guys are, she just wants Feds to come in now so SHE doesn't face the backlash over the "Wrong" people getting correctly convicted. Trump offered a similar deal to her was called a "Racist", he did send 13 extra fed prosecutors and encouraged local PD/Prosecutors to hand over any gun crime cases where the guns came from out of state to the Feds. Lightfoot and others have consistently blamed "Lax Gun Laws" of surrounding states for HER constituents shooting each other. Though none of those "Lax Gun Law" places have the same issues with rampant gun crime.

A friend at work also ran a small photo printing business on the side. One day I mentioned something about ATF doing such and so......and my computer nerd, totally non-gun oriented friend laughed out loud and said, "ATF! Those crazy, out of control cowboys?" I laughed, too, but more in surprise. Most average persons who aren't involved with shooting have no idea what "ATF" means, or anything about them. My friend nailed it. I asked how he came up with that view. He said that his business partner, another late twenties young man, had worked as an ATF agent for a couple of years until he decided that he "didn't want to have anything to do with that bunch of out of control, crazy, federal cowboys". Yeah....all true. And ATF isn't much for solving anything, they are far better at causing huge problems that others have to deal with. ATF caused both Ruby Ridge and Waco due to their showboating, violent, stupidity and incompetence. Expecting ATF to help a crime wave is just stupid.

Putting them in prison stops the crime - anything else is wasted time and man power. If you really wish to stop the crime, you have to build prisons, police need to arrest, prosecutors need to prosecute, juries need to convict, and judges need to sentence to prison.

Didn't President Trump offer to help her, and she turned him down? The majority of this is happening in just a few police precinct's, and they know which one's. And, I'll bet those same precinct's vote democrat year after year. Problem is, today's democrats aren't like democrats just 10 years ago and certainly not like those of 25 years ago.

FJB could put 10,000 ATF agents on the streets in Chicago, and it wouldn’t do a bit of good. Why? Because the U.S. Attorney in Chicago won’t prosecute any gun crimes. Why? Because it’s not flashy and doesn’t enhance a federal attorney’s career. Besides, EVERYBODY they arrest and prosecute would be black - and a lot of them would be girlfriends and grandmothers of gangbangers, who bought guns in “straw man” purchases because their boyfriends and grandsons couldn’t pass a background check.

Is this the same Mayor Lori Lightfoot who a little over a year ago cut the police budget? Is this the same Mayor Lori Lightfoot who a little over a year ago ridiculed Donald Trump for offering federal assistance to Chicago to help with their soaring murder and shooting rates? Is this the same Mayor Lori Lightfoot who, when offered federal assistance, and turned it down said that it would just make the streets of Chicago even more dangerous? How did all of that work out for the City of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot? How does it feel to be wrong so much? The city's current problems fall squarely on YOUR POOR CHOICES AND DECISIONS. Lori Lightfoot's choices and decisions have had dire consequences for the city.

The US Army is developing a vaccine to fight all variants of COVID-19, including Omicron and Delta—as well as all prior coronaviruses and strains not yet identified. Scientists at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research expect to announce the one-stop shot in just weeks after nearly two years of research that began with the DNA sequencing of the COVID-19 virus in early 2020, Defense One reported late Tuesday. Infectious disease specialists at the Department of Defense’s largest biomedical research facility completed animal trials earlier this year with its spike ferritin nanoparticle vaccine, or SpFN, with positive results, according to the report.

Accra–A brawl broke out on the floor of Ghana’s parliament late on Monday as lawmakers debated a proposed tax on electronic transactions that has divided the house for weeks. The 1.75% e-levy, which would include taxes on mobile money payments, has been fiercely opposed by the opposition since it was first proposed last month, and held up the passing of the national budget. Members of parliament rushed the front of the chamber after Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu suggested the tax be debated and voted upon under a hastened ‘urgency’ procedure.

The other day, in an interview with NBC News, Hillary Clinton went public with a warning -- or was it a dog whistle to Democrats and the left? It might be an instance of Hillary’s mouth running ahead of her brain, but don’t count on it. Hillary is a coldly calculating woman -- and that might be one of her better qualities. Hillary suggested that if Trump or “someone of his ilk” is elected president in 2024, then American democracy is kaput. Foolishness? Knowing the conceits and delusions that infect her intended audience, her suggestion might not seem ludicrous.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) says he regrets his participating in an awards event hosted earlier this month by the Communist Party of America. On Dec. 11, Blumenthal attended an awards ceremony hosted by Communist Party USA affiliate the Connecticut People's World Committee. The lawmaker gave out three certificates from the Senate to winners of the "Amistad Award," honoring labor and social justice activism. Blumenthal used the opportunity to promote the now-seemingly dead Build Back Better Act, as well as the Democratic party's efforts to pass elections legislation. In an interview with the Hartford Courant, the senator said he believed he was attending "strictly a labor event."

Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, on Tuesday called on Fox News to fire host Jesse Watters for targeting him with violent rhetoric at a conservative conference earlier this week. “That’s awful that he said that. And he’s going to go, very likely, unaccountable,” Fauci told CNN of Watters’ remarks. “I mean, whatever network he’s on is not going to do anything for him. I mean, that’s crazy. The guy should be fired on the spot.” Speaking on Monday at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest conference, Watters encouraged attendees to rhetorically “ambush” Fauci with dubious questions about the National Institutes of Health allegedly funding “gain-of-function”

President Joe Biden blamed alternative media sources on Tuesday for convincing Americans to refuse the coronavirus vaccines. “The unvaccinated are responsible for their own choices, but those choices have been fueled by dangerous misinformation on cable tv and social media,” Biden said. The president spoke about the spike in coronavirus cases as a result of the omicron variant of the virus, and repeatedly urged Americans to get vaccinated. He criticized media figures and influencers for “peddling lies” to make money off of their audience, which he argued endangered their lives. “It’s wrong. It’s immoral. I call on the purveyors of these lies and misinformation to stop it. Stop it now!”

If you read that headline and immediately asked yourself, Is this guy serious!? Well, the answer is yes. Dr. Anthony Fauci is 100% serious.To high-ranking government people like Fauci, you, the average workaday American, does not know what is best for yourself and your family. You must be told what to do, even if it means being pounded over the head repeatedly.All we can do is pray that Donald Trump takes back the White House in 2024 and boots Fauci and his ilk far, far away from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.WATCH:

Less than one year since he assumed office, Joe Biden has managed to turn his presidency into a deeply unpopular monarchy. No longer is he the genial but generally harmless buffoon who entertained most of us while he was in Congress with his mispronunciations, misquotes, and embellished tales of dubious authenticity. As a result of the 2020 presidential election that was, at best, questionable, Biden was elevated well past his ability, and he proceeded to wreck virtually everything he touched as leader of the free world. On his first day in office, via executive order, Biden closed the Keystone pipeline for no other reason
