CHI mayor blames GOP for her city’s mess, Sen. Cruz straightens that out


Far-left Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed Republicans for gun violence in her city Monday night. That’s rich since it’s their policies that allow the gun-gang/violence. The real problem was pointed out in June when her police chief said the criminals go through a revolving door. Judges let them right out, even for gun crimes.

Lightfoot told Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to “keep our name out of your mouth,” and posted a chart claiming 60% of guns recovered in Chicago come from out of state.

The Senator responded with logic after she suggested his state is a problem.

His last statement makes the obvious point, and it’s one supported by her own police chief:

Chicago has been under Democrat rule for a very long time. This is their baby.


On one particularly savage weekend in Chicago, Chief Eddie Johnson said what Ted Cruz just tweeted.

“I think what this shows is the proliferation of guns that we have on the streets of Chicago,” Mr. Johnson said. “You know, when you think about these incidents we had over the weekend, in many of [the shootings], police were within blocks. … That just goes to show you how emboldened some of these individuals are, you know? And it’s ridiculous that we just cannot get this right in terms of holding people accountable and finding alternatives for certain individuals that do.

“I’ll tell you this,” he said. “We know who a lot of these people are. And how do we know that? Because we keep arresting them over and over and over and over and over again. It’s just a vicious cycle. So until we hold violent offenders accountable in the way that they should be, we’re going to continue to see this.”

This is what the chief said in early June — half of the criminals were arrested and were back out on the street in a week.

The problem is gangs!!! A lot of foreign gangs too!!!


Lightfoot was elected on the idea that it would be “a city reborn.” How’s that working out? Well, over the Labor Day weekend, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, 43 were shot and 8 killed, including a 15-year-old boy, thanks to gang, not gun violence. The gun is only the weapon and Chicago has disarmed their innocent population but criminals still have guns.

She is an illogical woman and the only thing that goes on in her sanctuary, gangland city is Dem-supported transnational crime.
