Morning Greatness: Murderville, USA Refuses Federal Help

Good Wednesday morning.

Here’s what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president participates in a ceremonial swearing-in of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget
  • President Trump has lunch with the Vice President
  • The president receives his intelligence briefing
  • President Trump delivers remarks on Operation Legend: Combatting Violent Crime in American Cities

Murderville, USA refuses federal help

On Tuesday night, 14 people were shot in the sh!thole country of Chicago. The assault took place outside a funeral home. During a funeral.

An unknown number of people inside a vehicle shot at multiple people on the street who were attending a funeral. The individuals on the street then exchanged gunfire with the people in the vehicle, according to authorities.

Police said the suspects’ car crashed and they fled the scene.

All the shooting victims are in serious to critical condition.

What’s more important than the safety and lives of these victims, or any Chicago residents is that Trump keep the federal troops out of the city to protect the residents. Priorities! Can’t have the president looking good!

“What I understand at this point, and I caveat that, is that the Trump administration is not going to foolishly deploy unnamed agents to the streets of Chicago,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday. “We have information that allows us to say, at least at this point, that we don’t see a Portland-style deployment coming to Chicago.”

Instead, the feds will send agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“Unlike what happened in Portland, what we will receive is resources that are going to plug in to the existing federal agencies that we work with on a regular basis to help manage and suppress violent crime,” she said. “I’ve been very clear that we welcome actual partnership, but we do not welcome dictatorship.”

Lady, stupid stupid lady, there’s no dictatorship in Portland. The feds are legally permitted to protect federal property especially because the fools running the state and city allow their local barbarians to destroy federal property. The federal agents are labeled, they have numbers that identify the agents (the “peaceful” protestors like to doxx the police so they can terrorize the families of the agents so their names are not displayed) and they have the authority. STOP.LYING.

Many people, myself included don’t care if your city burns to the ground. But your ruffians can’t destroy federal property.

“That is a big difference,” Lightfoot said. “In Portland, they ignored the U.S. attorney, put these agents on the street, and I don’t think anybody can quibble with the fact that what happened … was undemocratic.” No, no, no. The state governor and the mayor have no say about how the feds protect federal property. Did you study any civics?

Meanwhile in Oregon some social justice dumbsh!ts are suing the feds for trying to protect federal property.

A pair of Oregon state lawmakers, an attorney, a church and a social justice group filed a lawsuit against four federal agencies Tuesday over the presence of federal agents in Portland as the city grapples with nightly protests that have at times turned violent.

State Reps. Janelle S. Bynum and Karin A. Power, both Democrats, are named as plaintiffs in the suit filed in federal court, along with Portland lawyer Sara D. Eddie, the First Unitarian Church of Portland and Western States Center.

“While the federal government may protect its property and personnel, the federal government is constrained by the Constitution from policing the City of Portland broadly speaking, and there is no positive delegation of authority in any law that makes the federal government’s recent forays into general policing in Portland either legal or constitutional,” the suit says.

No, no, no. The feds aren’t engaging in “general policing.” Nice try.
