Well this was bound to happen:
Man With Chicago Ties Charged With Killing Memphis Cop
According to court records, in 2013, Welch pleaded guilty to one count of felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in Cook County, and was sentenced to two years’ probation. He later was charged with violating probation, but the case was dismissed.
Felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in Cook County is what they give criminals that miss. In most states that would be attempted murder with a minimum 10 year sentence. However Chicago is filled with judges that pity the criminals and don’t want to send them to prison unless they actually kill or rape someone. This woman was caught on camera shooting down a live street and she only got a misdemeanor.
Of course liberals still want to stick to their narrative of blaming the guns themselves or a “lack of programs” all while attempted murder in Chicago gets you a stern warning. Totally outrageous.
If you have a Libertarian in the office that worships Ayn Rand then print this out this flyer. Most Libertarians are unaware of what their party fully supports or who Ayn Rand really was. The Libertarian party has done a master job at hiding many of their positions from the public. But thanks to the internet we can learn the truth about Ayn Rand and the Libertarian party.

Chicago hit the 1000 mark at a pace not seen in decades.
Why is this not on the CNN homepage? Or Fox News?
The mainstream media continues to look the other way as Chicago slides towards chaos. It is on the same path as Detroit where widespread violence drives out businesses which then depletes an overburdened government of further revenue.
Chicago is not just another US city. It is the shipping and transport hub of the midwest. Chicago O’Hare is the third largest airport in the US. Chicago is city that is vital to the US economy and should not be allowed to degrade into an abandoned shell of a city like Detroit. Violent crime in Black areas needs to be brought under control not just for the city but for the Black people that live there. Iraq is currently a safe place than Chicago. It is outrageous that our media and government continues to ignore what has effectively become a warzone. This war will only get worse unless our media and governments face this unspoken war and the disastrous polices that led to it.
Chicago teachers are striking and the mainstream media is again refusing to tell the entire story.
No mention that Chicago teachers are the highest paid in the nation.
No mention that 79 percent of Chicago 8th graders are not proficient in reading.
In what other employment sector would such dismal results be rewarded with the highest pay?
Our mainstream media is woefully corrupt as they do not want to tell the entire story in an attempt to push a pro-union and pro-Democrat agenda. The liberal narrative on education simply falls apart when on the facts are on the table. Their pleads for “more money” may appeal to emotions of parents but a closer look reveals major problems as seen by the fact that DC schools managed entirely by Democrats spends nearly as much per student as Harvard. Corruption is rife in these East Coast cities and it’s a shame that our mainstream media not only supports this corruption but keeps pertinent facts from the public in an effort to maintain the status quo. If it really is “about the children” then let’s look at all the facts and make the best decision. Trying to deceive the public into a specific point of view by withholding facts is tantamount to fraud. The entire mass media industry is a cesspool of corruption and only the internet has allowed its walls of lies and deception to be breached.
In the first 10 days of January more than 100 people were shot in Chicago. Where is the mainstream media? It seems they only show up when there is a police shooting.
In the midst of this gunfire, what are local officials there doing with the time allotted to them by taxpayers to improve the city? What have they deemed to be a priority worth debating? Banning plastic bags of course.
It seems to me that both the MSM and the Democrats that run Chicago are in complete denial of what is happening there. They are debating plastic bags when a more important question is, why would someone want to open a business in Chicago when practically every block was within a mile of a shooting for the month of January? Why are there $1 lots that are within a few miles of the downtown Chicago? Chicago is our 6th largest export market and there are properties that can be bought for pocket change.
The simple reality is that the high levels of violent crime in these areas are scaring off investors which causes further destabilization. Democrats do not like to lock up minority criminals but they need to consider the cost to these areas by basically letting the gangs runs wild. Take a virtual tour of Englewood for yourself to see all of the abandoned store fronts. This is a neighborhood that is about 20 minutes from the downtown.
Mandatory minimums for violent crimes work because they keep the worst criminals off the streets. It really doesn’t matter if they act as a deterrent or not. What matters is that the criminals cannot continue to commit those types crimes while they are incarcerated. Democrats and liberals need to educate themselves on the reality of psychopaths and how some people really are born bad. Liberal assumptions about society being to blame for all individual problems is proving to be naive. The worst criminals need to be identified and removed from society or they will continue to turn neighborhoods like Englewood into war zones.
Chicago shootings are up 200% from last year.
There are dozens of articles on the police shooting video from 2013 but the MSM seems uninterested in reporting on the fact that the city is exploding in violence.
Democrats are still talking about the “gun show loophole” and background checks when a University of Chicago study found that criminals get their guns from friends and family. House Democrats are trying to ban assault rifles even though it is extremely rare for them to be used in homicides when compared to handguns.
When it comes to proposing laws there is clearly a misdirection of focus on the part of Democrats. If they are serious about reducing gun violence then they need to look at where it mostly occurring and how those guns are being acquired.
What we are seeing is the acceptance of anarchy by both political parties and the mainstream media. Democrats especially should be ashamed since they have had total control of this city for decades and yet they are spending legislative time on gun shows that are mostly patronized by rural Whites and rifles rarely used in crimes. Their refusal to face the reality of a warzone in their own jurisdiction is appalling. Sadly the only circumstance that will likely capture the attention of politicians is an exponential increase in violence to where local government services are unable to function.
Baltimore murders have increased 50% year over year to a new per capita high.
Milwaukee had a 67% increase in homicides which puts it at a level not seen since the 90s.
Washington DC had a 54% increase.
St. Louis had a 50% increase which made it the murder capital of the country.
Liberals in the past have tried to excuse higher than average homicide rates in Black cities with various defenses. Let’s look at how they stack up with this recent data:
- Poverty. The catch-all excuse with a poor foundation (can poor people not be moral?) is even more troubling here. None of these cities have had any significant economic changes. The black unemployment rate is actually the lowest since 2007.
- Lead poisoning. This excuse has been used for decades and is often cited for the increase in violent crime that occurred in the 90s. Obviously this is a poor excuse for a year over year increase especially given that lead was phased out decades ago. Lead poisoning is valid environmental concern but this excuse had problems from the beginning which I will cover in an upcoming post.
- Availability of guns. Many liberals seem to believe that gun related violence is simply a math equation. But are we supposed to believe that St. Louis had a 50% increase in the gun supply? What about the moral culpability of the shooters? Do liberals believe it exists? The supply theory also doesn’t make sense given that there are states like Alaska that have high gun ownership and yet have low murder rates.
- Legacy of slavery. Another catch-all excuse that fails in the current context. Did the legacy increase year over year?
Liberal excuses for violent crime were never that credible in the first place but these recent increases show that liberal explanations are clearly missing some variables. It’s probably time they face the dreaded C word (rhymes with vulture) and consider if some of their government polices from the “Great Society” plans (when is that happening?) have helped or hindered the C word.
The Washington Post recently ran an article entitled How to reduce gun violence even though it didn’t actually contain a solution and just suggested allowing Federal research.
There is actually a simple solution that can easily reduce gun violence in the US.
Since even the liberal Washington Times now acknowledges that gun homicides are overwhelmingly in Black communities it makes sense to target these areas and not pretend that it is a national problem.
The simple solution is to impose curfews in areas like Chicago and Baltimore. Chicago is more dangerous than Iraq so we need to stop pretending that it is a normal city. Looking at a scatter chart of shootings for the last 30 days shows the shocking violence of this city.
It’s a myth that these shootings are all gang related. In fact as I pointed out before in White Chicagoans less violent than French non-Gang shootings by Blacks in Chicago still drastically out number other groups.
Imposing a curfew of 10:00 PM on weekdays for cities like Chicago would achieve the following:
- Fewer conflicts by simply reducing street level interactions
- Reduced alcohol related shootings
- Allow the community to have a quiet period where children will not constantly wake to gunshots
Anyone breaking the curfew without a work permit would be subject to searching which would take more guns off the street.
This would also reduce costs for the city as fewer police would be needed during midnight hours.
A curfew is a cost effective solution that does not compromise the rights of gun owners and is intellectually honest in that it targets gun related violence where it is mainly occurring.
If more car accidents occurred on a single stretch of a highway than an entire state would it be logical to blame the legalization of cars? Would it make sense to propose banning certain cars that are rarely found on any highway? How would this be a logical political response?
Democrats in Congress might want to look at the racial divergence of gun homicide statistics in America instead of proposing national bans against certain types of rifles . Such a proposal is deceptive and dishonest as it ignores the racial component of gun related homicides.
Extracting from these Chicago shooting statistics reveals that Englewood, a 3 square mile neighborhood in Chicago with a population of 20,000 had 49 homicides. Alaska has a population of around 750k and yet they had 41 homicides in 2014.
Interestingly Alaska has the highest rate of gun ownership where more than 60% of households own a gun. The theory that the guns themselves cause a higher homicide rate is obviously a myth. If the guns were truly the problem then Alaska should be a warzone.
Democrats that want to reduce gun related homicides need to look at where they are occurring and stop depicting the problem as national. The overwhelming amount of gun related homicides occur in heavily Black cities like Chicago where Democrats have had a political monopoly for decades. The vast majority of these homicides involved a handgun and only rarely is a rifle of any type used. Drafting legislation that ignores the racial component of gun related homicides is intellectually dishonest and undermines efforts to find solutions that actually reduce the problem.
