CHICAGO - Chicago's newest restrictions on coronavirus-related cases now will involve bars and restaurants closing everything down as of midnight, even on the weekends.

Black Lives Matter mural near Chicago defaced, changed to read ‘All Lives Matter’

I'm not for vandalism, but this should be repeated in every city with these Black Lives Matters bullshit!  
NY Post reports a Black Lives Matter mural was defaced and painted over to read “All Lives Matter” in a village near Chicago this week, according to officials and a new report.

The mural, painted two weeks ago in Oak Park, Illinois, was vandalized overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, village officials said.

Portions of the mural were covered up so that it read “All Lives Matter,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

The graffiti was largely cleaned off by 10 a.m. Wednesday, but local officials and artists who created the mural said they will discuss whether additional work is needed to fully restore it, the outlet reported.

Criminal allegations against police officers in Cook County can now be filed on state’s attorney’s office website

Kim Foxx, citing an increase in allegations of criminal misconduct against law enforcement officials, said the new form, available on the office’s website, was created in response to a “growing frustration that in a lot of these cases, we [prosecutors] aren’t notified by [investigating authorities] until late in the process.” Ashlee Rezin Garcia/Sun-Times file

I don't know if Duckworth is a moron but she is starting to seem like one

Tucker Carlson Unloads On ‘Moron’ Senator Tammy Duckworth For Being ‘Too Afraid To Defend Her Own Statements’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) on Tuesday night over comments she made about President Donald Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore, as well as for her failure to come on his show to defend her claims.

Carlson criticized Duckworth after she suggested over the weekend that she was open to tearing down statues of some of the Founding Fathers, including President George Washington. Duckworth responded to criticisms from Carlson by writing on Twitter, “Does @TuckerCarlson want to walk a mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?”

Carlson responded to Duckworth in a fiery segment for allegedly refusing to come on his show to defend her own statements unless he apologized (transcript via Fox News; video below):

Carlson: So last night we played you long clips from the president’s recent address at Mount Rushmore. It may have been the best speech Donald Trump has ever given. It was succinct and clear, and it was true, and for all of those reasons the Democratic Party and its many minions absolutely hated it. They denounced the speech, and this may not come as a complete surprise to you, as “racist!”

Now, that’s a slur long divorced from any actual meaning, but we should tell you that as a factual matter, it’s a lie. There was nothing even conceivably racist about Trump’s speech, go watch it for yourself. There was not a racist word or idea in the whole thing. The only time Trump even brought up the Civil War was to praise Abraham Lincoln, who, thank God, won it. He never mentioned the Confederacy or anyone in the Confederacy. Instead, Trump praised unabashed American heroes like George Washington, Clara Barton, the Wright brothers, Jackie Robinson.

Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois watched Trump’s speech, or claimed she did. Her summary of it? “He spent all of his time talking about dead traitors.” George Washington, Clara Barton, Jackie Robinson, they are all, according to Tammy Duckworth, dead traitors. Pretty shocking.

In case you think we are being unfair here, in the same interview, Senator Duckworth was asked if we should tear down statutes to George Washington. ‘Sure,’ she responded, ‘let’s talk about it.’ That tape we played for you last night and we noted how grotesque it was. Only someone who hates the country would suggest ripping down monuments to its founder. Apparently Tammy Duckworth saw what we said. She didn’t disagree with it exactly, instead she questioned our right to criticize her at all since she was once injured while serving in the Illinois Army National Guard. That’s what passes for an argument in modern identity politics. They don’t address the points that you make, they question your right to make them at all.

The irony of course is that George Washington himself, the “dead traitor” Tammy Duckworth has such contempt for, also served in the military. Washington spend most of his adult life under arms. He fought in two wars. At one point in the winter of 1777, Washington lost almost a quarter of his entire army to cold and malnutrition. So George Washington paid his dues. He was, as we might say today, a combat veteran. And by the way, Washington also created the country we live in. George Washington was a genuinely great man, but to morons like Tammy Duckworth, Washington is just some old white guy who needs to be erased. “Let’s tear down his statues, rename our capital city Sharpton or Mandela and let the revolution continue.”

But hold on, not so fast. Changes that profound deserve a debate. Not some fake national conversation with screamed commands at you and you get to obey, but a vigorous reasoned exchange between adults. We wanted to have an exchange like that with Tammy Duckworth tonight. So we called her office and we invited on the show. Her flack informed us that before even considering our request we must first issue a public apology for criticizing Tammy Duckworth. In other words, ‘I will not debate you until first you admit you’re completely wrong.’ Keep in mind, Tammy Duckworth is not a child, at least not technically, she’s a sitting United States senator who is often described as a hero.

Yet Duckworth is too afraid to defend her own statements on a cable TV show. What a coward. Tammy Duckworth is also a fraud. Five years ago while she was a member of Congress, whistleblowers from a VA hospital in Illinois approached Duckworth to report the widespread mistreatment of sick veterans. Remember that story? The whistleblowers met with Tammy Duckworth three times. She refused to help them. According to a cardiologist who attended those meetings, Duckworth dismissed the systemic cruelty inflicted on dying veterans by saying that “that’s just how it is” at the VA. The whistleblowers were horrified by her response. Ultimately, in frustration they took their story to the media and it became a national scandal. This is the person lecturing the rest of us about her moral authority as a veteran. Spare us.

Tammy Duckworth is a callous hack who ignored the callous suffering of actual veterans when it actually mattered. She has no moral authority, she’s just a politician like the rest of them. She works for us, this is a democracy, she has an obligation to explain herself and answer our question. And our first question would be, ‘How can you lead a country you despise?’ It’s not something we would ask only to Tammy Duckworth by the way. Hating America is a major theme in the Democratic Party right now, it’s everywhere. Turn on the TV. …

I have the feeling that some aspect of this story is BS, I just can't put my finger on it
