No layoffs in city government due to declining revenues and rising costs, Lightfoot says
The mayor acknowledged “some impact” on revenues, but argued Chicago is “well-situated” because her budget anticipated “some kind of economic downturn” in 2020, though nobody expected “it would be due to a pandemic.” 

Her budget did not anticipate a downturn. The city will be a candidate for bankruptcy unless she makes expenditure adjustments immediately.

Several months ago, my husband Steve had a bad cold. I plied him with tea and honey and chicken soup (aka Jewish penicillin), bought over-the-counter bromides that promised relief, kept him away from people and people away from him, and even insisted that he try a folk remedy I was told was very effective and proved to
be – smearing Vicks VapoRub on the bottoms of his feet (before putting socks over them) at nighttime, the better to wake up with clear nasal passages and lungs.

And that was for the common cold!

And Steve wasn't running for anything, much less President of the United States!

What I did takes place millions of times a day not only across the United States, but the entire world – women taking care of their husbands, doing everything possible to protect them from harm or hurt.

LIVE: President Trump, Coronavirus Task Force hold press briefing

A new foreign policy

Trump should go further, turn the tables, and seize this crisis to do what he was elected to do — impose a new foreign policy.
To fight the coronavirus at home, France is removing all military forces from Iraq.
When NATO scaled back its war games in Europe because of the pandemic, Russia reciprocated. Moscow announced it would cancel its war games along NATO’s border.
Nations seem to be recognizing and responding to the grim new geostrategic reality of March 2020: The pandemic is the real enemy of us all, and while we fight it, each in his own national corner, we are in this together.
Never allow a serious crisis to go to waste, said Barack Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel during the financial crisis.
Emanuel was echoed this month by House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn, who called the coronavirus crisis “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”
What Clyburn had in mind is what Democrats advanced as their alternative to the $2.2 trillion emergency bill. It was designed to force President Trump either to swallow it whole or to take responsibility for vetoing a critical transfusion of federal funds to keep the economy alive.
Among the items stuffed in the Democrats’ proposal:
A $15-an-hour minimum wage imposed on companies receiving funds. Blanket loan forgiveness of $10,000 for students. New tax credits for solar and wind energy. Full funding of Planned Parenthood. Federal dollars for fetal tissue research.
$300 million for PBS, which has been promoting the LBGT agenda to school kids. Mandating “diversity” on corporate boards as a condition of companies receiving funds. Election “reforms” to increase Democratic turnout. Insistence that airlines, to get a bailout, offset carbon emissions from jet engines. $35 million for the Kennedy Center.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and congressional Republicans ash-canned almost the leftist wish list.
But Trump should go further, turn the tables, and seize this crisis to do what he was elected to do — impose a new foreign policy.
Isolate America, not from the world, but from the world’s wars.

Atheists Rip Pence For Church Donation Appeal

March 30, 2020

By BILL DONOHUE
Organized atheists, unlike most Americans who are nonbelievers, are more often than not driven by hatred of religion and the faithful. Their impulses are totalitarian: They would ban all religious expression if they could. A classic case is Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).
FFRF has gone ballistic because Vice President Mike Pence recently implored Americans to make donations to their church, even if they cannot attend during the coronavirus crisis.
The atheists said that no American public official “should lend the power and prestige of their office to a particular church or to religion in general.” They even accused Pence of being un-American.
“Leveraging a global pandemic to drum up church donations is an egregious betrayal of the country’s founding principles in order to benefit religion.”
The atheists added that Pence “should not further encourage Americans to give their money to those who least deserve it.”
Their reasoning is bankrupt. Here are four reasons why.
First, Pence was exercising two of his First Amendment rights: freedom of speech and freedom of religion (religious expression is a core constitutional right). Even vice presidents maintain those rights.
Second, Pence did not order anyone to give to their church or offer new tax incentives if they did. His terms were purely volitional.
Third, what Pence said not only did not betray America’s founding principles, it affirmed them. Every president in American history has made public appeals expressing the critical role that religion plays in society, especially during times of adversity.
During the Civil War, Lincoln once told his secretary, “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.”
Similarly, William McKinley, struggling with his decision to seize the Philippines, said to a group of ministers, “I am not ashamed to tell you, gentlemen, that I went down on my knees and prayed Almighty God for light and guidance more than one night.”
Atheists like those at FFRF like to cite Jefferson as an example of a nonbelieving president who wanted an impregnable wall between church and state. They are badly educated.
When Jefferson was seen carrying a red prayer book, a skeptical citizen asked where he was going. “To church,” he replied. “Why, Mr. President, you don’t believe a word of it,” the citizen said.
Jefferson replied, “I, as the chief magistrate of this nation, am bound to give it the sanction of my example.” Jefferson also awarded the Kaskaskia Indians $300 so they could build a Catholic church. And all Pence was doing was asking Americans to give to their church!
Fourth, it is risible to read atheists tell the faithful not to give to their church because it will go to “those who least deserve it.” Every study on charitable giving shows that atheists are the least generous and religious Americans are the most generous.
From giving blood to providing food, clothing, and shelter to those in need, the churches, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship lead the way in donating goods and services to those in need.
God bless Vice President Pence for encouraging Americans to support their local religious institutions during this crisis.

A REMNANT INTERVIEW: Bishop Athanasius Schneider on Church’s handling of Coronavirus

Written by  Diane Montagna

<< The current situation provides sufficient reasonable grounds to think that we are at the beginning of an apocalyptic time, which includes divine chastisements. Our Lord referred to the prophecy of Daniel: “When you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place, let the reader understand” (Mt 24:15).
<< The Book of Revelation says that the Church will have for a while to flee into the wilderness (see Rev 12:14). The almost general cessation of the public Sacrifice of the Mass could be interpreted as a flight in a spiritual wilderness. What is regrettable in our situation is the fact that many members of the Church’s hierarchy do not see the current situation as a tribulation, as a divine chastisement, that is to say, as a “divine visitation” in the biblical sense. These words of the Lord are applicable also to many of the clergy in the midst of the current physical and spiritual epidemic: “You have not known the time of your visitation” (Luke 19:44).
<< The current situation of this “fiery ordeal” (see 1 Peter 4:12) must be taken seriously by the Pope and bishops in order to lead to a deep conversion of the entire Church. If this does not occur, then the message of the following story of Soren Kierkegaard will be applicable to our current situation as well: “A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that’s just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it’s a joke.” >>

ROME, March 27, 2020 — As the coronavirus continues to spread, Bishop Athanasius Schneider has urged priests to imitate Jesus the Good Shepherd and, for the sake of souls, even disobey the unjust orders of bishops whom he says are now behaving more like “civil bureaucrats” than “shepherds.”
In a new interview on the Church’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic (see full text below), the auxiliary bishop of Saint Mary in Astana, Kazakhstan, said he believes the majority of Catholic bishops reacted “precipitously and out of panic in prohibiting all public Masses.” The decision to close churches, he said, is “even more incomprehensible.”

Message on the Combat against the Coronavirus, COVID-19

ON MAR 21, 2020

Dear Friends,

For some time now, we have been in combat against the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19. From all that we can tell – and one of the difficulties of the combat is that so much about the pestilence remains unclear – , the battle will yet continue for some time. The virus involved is particularly insidious, for it has a relatively long incubation period – some say 14 days and some say 20 days – and is highly contagious, much more highly contagious than other viruses we have experienced.

One of the principal natural means to defend ourselves against the coronavirus is to avoid any close contact with others. It is important, in fact, to keep always a distance – some say a yard (meter) and some say six-feet – away from each other, and, of course, to avoid group gatherings, that is gatherings in which a number of people are in close proximity of each other. In addition, since the virus is transmitted by small droplets emitted when one sneezes or blows his or her nose, it is critical to wash

Jail population falls to record low as COVID-19 measures take hold

The Cook County Jail population dropped to its lowest level in decades this week after judges began a sweeping review of criminal cases in an effort to clear space to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The jail population Friday had fallen to 5,003 — down by 400 or so detainees who were there on Monday when Chief Criminal Court Judge LeRoy Martin Jr. ordered a case-by-case bond reassessments of those charged with mostly non-violent offenses.
As the reviews began Tuesday and continued through the week, judges ordered the immediate release of inmates who were determined to not pose a threat to the public.
On Monday, officials announced the first two confirmed case of COVID-19 at the jail. By Friday, the jail had logged 38 confirmed cases. Nine sheriff’s office employees also tested positive for COVID-19.

WASHINGTON, March 27 (Reuters) - The U.S. military is watching coronavirus infection trends in Chicago, Michigan, Florida and Louisiana with concern as it weighs where else it may need to deploy, after boosting aid to New York, California and Washington, a top general said on Friday.

Air Force General John Hyten, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the military was doing its own analysis as well as looking at data on infections compiled elsewhere in the government.

"There's a certain number of places where we have concerns and they're: Chicago, Michigan, Florida, Louisiana," Hyten told a group of reporters, when asked where field hospitals could head next.

"Those are the areas that we're looking at and trying to figure out where to go next."

Don't get pneumonia

While you weren’t looking, our painfully gentle, meek-looking, politically-correct, athleisure-clad American Illuminati moved the entire American pharmaceutical industry to China — lock, stock, and the proverbial barrel of penicillin. They did this because Thomas Friedman’s book told them that the world was flat and that “China, in many ways, is closer to us than Mexico.” It never in a million years occurred to them that they were putting significant power into the hands of people who consider American “thought leaders” mere dung flies to be swatted away or cultivated in manure, depending on the mood of the moment. Our Eloi are charmingly naive that way; they’re like the eight-year-old child who thinks he’s found a new way to cheat at Monopoly, not realizing that the adults around the table can predict his every move before it happens. Raised to operate in quarterly timeframes, they can’t imagine the thought processes of men (and it’s men, not womyn or furries or whatever) who might knowingly lose money on factories and industrial production for decades in a row in order to have the whip hand when it matters most.
Through their state media, China reminded the United States that they could easily choose to exercise, and I quote, “strategic control over medical products.” Such an exercise of control would turn this country into a bloody hellscape.

Out of his own pocket


CHICAGO (CBS) — As the number of new coronavirus cases in Illinois climbed even further on Thursday, Gov. JB Pritzker said the state is establishing a new initiative to support non-profits during the COVID-19 crisis, and he is donating millions of his own dollars to help get it started.
Pritzker said the state is teaming up with United Way and the Alliance of Illinois Community Foundations to establish the Illinois COVID-19 Response Fund to support local non-profits across the state who are helping those hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic.
“My team and I are incredibly grateful for all of the businesses, and leaders, and organizations who have stepped up to meet this moment,” he said.

The governor said the fund will help provide emergency food and supplies, offer shelter and housing to those who need it, expand healthcare services, assist with utility costs and other financial burdens, and help children and families enduring school closings.
Pritzker named his sister, former U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, as the chair of the foundation.
“When JB called me last week to talk about the need for a fund to support basic needs for all Illinoisans during this critical time, he said there was nothing more important that we can do to help the too many people across our great state who are desperate for assistance. That is what this effort is all about,” she said.
Penny Pritzker said the fund would work in cooperation with other foundations to ensure resources are directed where they’re needed most in Illinois. She said the fund already has raised nearly $23 million.
“I have been blown away by the so many people who have answered the call in just the last few days to create this effort. Everyone we asked to help signed on immediately – and I mean everyone — and without hesitation,” she said.
The governor and his wife have personally donated $2 million to the fund, and their family foundation has given another $2 million.

Why did this happen?

In the months prior to the most ferocious stock market crash in history and the eruption of the biggest public health crisis of our generation, we witnessed the biggest exodus of corporate CEOs that we have ever seen.

And as you will see below, corporate insiders also sold off billions of dollars worth of shares in their own companies just before the stock market imploded.  In life, timing can be everything, and sometimes people simply get lucky.  But it does seem odd that so many among the corporate elite would be so exceedingly “lucky” all at the same time.  In this article I am not claiming to know the motivations of any of these individuals, but I am pointing out certain patterns that I believe are worth investigating.

One financial publication is using the phrase “the great CEO exodus” to describe the phenomenon that we have been witnessing.  It all started last year when chief executives started resigning in numbers unlike anything that we have ever seen before.  The following was published by NBC News

Andrew Cuomo to Trump administration: 'You pick the 26K people who are going to die'

NEW YORK CITY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo voiced alarm and frustration with the Trump administration’s response to the growing coronavirus crisis Tuesday, estimating that New York is just two weeks away from hitting the apex of its outbreak.

Cuomo was careful not to call out President Donald Trump by name, but said in stark terms that if U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar doesn’t release the 20,000 ventilators in the federal stockpile and the president doesn’t demand U.S. companies manufacture more, thousands of New Yorkers will die as a result.

“The president said it's a war ... then act like it,” Cuomo said, raising his voice during a morning news conference at the Javits Center in Manhattan. “They’re doing the supplies? Here’s my question: Where are they?”

If more ventilators aren’t sent within weeks, Cuomo told the feds, “You pick the 26,000 people who

BLUE ISLAND, Ill. - Blue Island Mayor Domingo Vargas shut down the city’s police department Sunday for reports that a member of the department tested positive for coronavirus, according to the south suburb’s state representative.

“I have since learned that Mayor Domingo Vargas made a unilateral decision at 1 a.m. Sunday (today) to suspend all police department activities,” Il. Rep Bob Rita, D-Blue Island, said in a statement. “At no point did the Mayor’s office contact my office, any member of the City Council or

STOCK MARKET WILL BE DOWN BIG TIME THIS MORNING
Washington (AFP) - A trillion-dollar Senate proposal to rescue the reeling US economy crashed to defeat Sunday after receiving zero support from Democrats, and with five Republicans absent from the chamber because of virus-related quarantines.
Democrats said the Republican plan failed to sufficiently protect millions of American workers or shore up the critically under-equipped

Hey Pritzker...check out the meaning of "stiff upper lip"



Please keep a stiff upper lip when discussing the current health crisis, your meltdowns and constant criticism of Trump is helping nobody. The people of Illinois are expecting you to lead not bellyache.

Now get off your ass and be the leader you can be. 

A person who is said to have a stiff upper lip displays fortitude and stoicism in the face of adversity, or exercises great self-restraint in the expression of emotion. The phrase is most commonly heard as part of the idiom "keep a stiff upper lip", and has traditionally been used to describe an attribute of British people in remaining resolute and unemotional when faced with adversity. A sign of weakness is trembling of the upper lip, hence the saying keep a stiff upper lip. When a person's upper lip begins to tremble, it is one of the first signs that the person is scared or shaken by experiencing deep emotion.

I get the feeling that Pace may be a bit of a gambler

Ryan Pace’s decision to sign Jimmy Graham might be his most bizarre as Bears’ GM — and that’s saying something

How Pace still has a job isn’t even a question, not if you’ve followed this franchise for part or all of the past three decades. These are the Bears.

When Bears general manager Ryan Pace came up with the bright idea of signing the chalk outline of Jimmy Graham’s career to a two-year, $16 million contract, he almost certainly ran it past team chairman George McCaskey.

A normal franchise would have had checks in place to stop a plan to give a 33-year-old tight end in

This race will be different


accepted campaign donations and then settled big cases for the donor, that is corruption per se

Could the Cook County state’s attorney’s race turn into Bernard Epton redux? Or will it be a call to end incompetence and corruption at the SA office?


It’s a reminder of Bernard Epton vs. Harold Washington. The Cook County GOP is talking up nominee Patrick O’Brien to defeat incumbent state’s attorney Kim Foxx.

Then and now, it is unthinkable that a Republican could be elected to high office in this legendary Democratic bastion once ruled by Mayor Richard J. “Boss” Daley.

The Party of Death handed Lipinski


Infanticide Democrats Defeat Prolife Dan Lipinski. 


Lipinski should be proud that he didn't compromise.

Illinois Democratic Rep, Dan Lipinski, known as “the last pro-life Democrat,” who barely survived an attempted purge by the progressives dominating his party, in 2020 has succumbed to a second primary challenge from Marie Newman, a pro-abortion progressive activist more in tune with the pro-death  beliefs of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Lipinski regularly attended the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. and generally tried to cling to his pro-life Catholic roots while becoming a target for a party that was finally dropping the pro-choice fraud it had been hiding behind, moving from the right to choose to the obligation to kill up to the moment of birth, sometimes even afterward. Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the baby butcher of Philadelphia, was suddenly the patron saint of the full-blown pro-abortion Democrat Party. In 2018 it seemed the  Democrats were finally ready to throw Dan Lipinski
