EVERYONE stop what you’re doing and listen to this plea from Dr. Ngozi Ezike , Illinois / the Midwest is plunging into a 2nd wave.. These are the voices that people should be listening to.. Doctors are pleading with us... #Chicago #COVID19 #illinois…
Sit down Karen.. Dr. Ngozi is saving lives and attempting to guide us from falling off of a cliff! You’re a willfully ignorant local talk show host who doesn’t care if our medical system is on the brink of being overrun or how many ppl are infected or die

This makes me ABSOLUTELY livid.. a longtime employee who has special needs was fired from his job for standing up to a customer who had been harassing him for months and refused to wear a mask! #chicago…
As a parent of a child with special needs I know how important it is for companies to employ ppl w/ disabilities and how much these employees give back in return.. They are definitely the most dedicated workers and often are close with people in the community...
I’m upset that @jewelosco is willing to toss their longtime employees under the bus and risk the lives of their employees and customers. They didn’t stand up for their employee Khaled who was being harassed for months by a customer because he’s disabled…

You know, things that save lives like Trump COVID response saving 2 million of the estimated 2.2 million lives threatened according to your science guy Anthony Fauci!

Police killings? See @FBI stats for reality check😉
Of course, if #FakeNewsMediaClowns would quit with their #FakeNews doctrine, y’all on the left might be aware of a wide ranging approach to reducing opioid deaths. Helped in part by having the will to #BuildTheWall which slowed the incoming drugs and #illegalimmigrants aliens.

#OurFavoriteTurkishTroll is back to show off his lousy Twitter game. He must have forgotten that the Chairs and Ranking Members of the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees started the #SanctionTurkey chorus:
He must have also missed it when the US Congress passed the NDAA last year with a provision calling for the US to #SanctionTurkey Image
It must really burn him up when a Congressman in his former jurisdiction (and member of the Congressional Turkey caucus) introduced legislation this summer to #SanctionTurkey…

#AaronSwartz advocated that all academic research should be available for free to the people instead of being kept behind publishing paywalls and #government control.
This led him to download millions of journal articles without authorization which ensured him federal
prosecution, that many believe led to his suicide.
Knowledge is power and that’s why the #NWO controls much of it.
Aaron believed an open access information “helped me become the sort of person I am, and writ large, would probably have a similar effect on the rest of
the #world.” Aaron’s father told the #Chicago Sun Times that Aaron was murdered by the government. In 2013, #MIT would release its report on Aaron.

2 Major Key findings: 1) MIT did NOT ‘call in the feds’ to take over the investigation. A #Cambridge police detective brought

I hope everyone across the world knows this is NOT who #Chicago is. The corrupt Chicago political establishment is a small pocket of psychos who destroyed our urban black community so they can rule trafficking operations via gangs & push corrupt candidates. #Lightfoot is crazy!
FYI, I run COVID stats for a large percentage of the Chicagoland pop & I can prove without a shadow of a doubt, these theatrics are based on zero factual evidence in the area. Last 45 days have had less than <3.4% positive rate. 99% of those survive (No nursing home scandals). Image
I’m still putting together a March-May database but from my memory I believe it peaked around 18-25% positive tests, however this doesn’t account for false positives as we, like everyone else, took whatever tests we could early on. ALL of the theatrics are election based agendas! Image

Bond court —

For the second time today, a defendant is claiming that he was exonerated after being wrongfully convicted. Robbery this time.

...He's also claiming that he was exonerated for wrongful murder conviction in the some case. Again, the state has no knowledge of this purported exoneration.
...Unlike the previous defendant today who claimed to be an exonerated murderer, there is no media coverage of any kind to support this second man's claim.

Violence court —

Judge: You're here on a kidnapping warrant. State, how do you want to proceed?

Defendant: Um, if I could get an I-bond, I don't have any felonies in my backgro...

Judge: Not you, sir.

Prosecutor: Uh, regarding what he said. He has a prior murder conviction.
...More info now: The defendant received a 60-year sentence for murder stemming from a 1997 case.

1997 + 60 = 2057. 🤔

Defense says he's been out of prison for 15 months.
...Defendant: "It was vacated. I was wrongly convicted. It was vacated."

The defendant is now accused of participating in an armed home invasion in which a family member was kidnapped by men who demanded (as I recall) $1 million cash or a haul of cocaine.
