The Role of Abortion in Our Elections
"Go a little farther south, go to the neighboring state to the south and you've got my beloved South Carolina, where I spend a lot of time. A group of about 21 legislators in South Carolina introduced legislation that would lead to the death penalty for a woman who had an abortion performed. That's not good news. And that leads me to what I think should be a very serious conversation about the role that abortion is playing in our elections. This week in Wisconsin, the unthinkable happened. A far left progressive activist judge who promised to preserve abortion rights was elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in Wisconsin now has a liberal majority Supreme Court. That's going to affect Wisconsin for years. That's going to affect the lives of unborn babies. For years, late term abortion, anybody? Because that's a woman's right to choose, right? Look at in Chicago. The nudnik they elected in Chicago's worst than that Nick Lori Lightfoot.
The National Divide Among Parties Present in Elections
"A lawmaker in North Carolina announced yesterday. She's leaving the Democrat party representative Tricia Gotham, a state representative in the tar hill state, who represents a district near Charlotte, joined state House and Senate Republican leaders yesterday at the North Carolina GOP headquarters for a press conference to announce her switch and she is now made the Republican she's now given the Republicans a veto proof majority in the state legislature. You know what's happening and look at this is a great example. We're witnessing the national divorce. You see it, right? You understand what's happening with between the red states and the blue states, and I don't mean to name call. I should be in a better Christian spirit. I'm sorry that I'm going to be a little edgy here. The idiots in Chicago have handed the keys to city hall to somebody worse than Lori Lightfoot. So they voted Lori Lightfoot out because of her despicable policies and they elected a guy who's worse than her. In Wisconsin, voters there have just flipped the Wisconsin Supreme Court to a liberal majority, which is going to be devastating. For unborn babies, but ironically, it's the abortion issue that did it. And whether we like it or not, as New York magazine put on its cover this week, abortion is winning elections for Democrats.
Chicago Elects a Teachers Union-Backed Mayor
"Johnson. So Brandon Johnson was the Bernie Sanders backed progressive that is now going to be the mayor of Chicago and it's a little bit of a head scratcher because let's not forget Lori Lori Lightfoot was a disaster for the city of Chicago. She's the one that kept the kids out of school for so long because she was beholden to these teachers unions. Well, what did they do? They went and got another guy who's beholden to the teacher's unions. You tell me how that's going to work out for those kids in Chicago. It tell me how it's going to work out for people in Chicago on the south side that just want a little safety. Want their kids to be able to walk to and from school. Without having to worry about all the things that they're worried about right now. Well, the guy and they were both liberals, by the way, the guy that was actually backed by the police union and wanted to do more to help ensure safety and improve the economy and get kids in schools actually the CEO of the Chicago public schools. Well, they want anything to do with him. Nope, nope, they went with Bernie Sanders back, progressive, who is bought and paid for by the teachers unions. So more trouble ahead for the city of Chicago. It's really kind of tragic. But one day, hopefully, hopefully they learn their lesson and they start electing, the right kind of people with the right kind of policies because that really
Johnson elected Chicago mayor in victory for progressives
"Former teacher and union organizer Brandon Johnson has been elected the mayor of Chicago. Johnson a Cook County commissioner endorsed by the Chicago teachers union, won a close race over former Chicago school's CEO Paul valles, who was backed by the police union. Johnson succeeds mayor Lori Lightfoot, who became the first Chicago mayor in 40 years to lose her reelection bid when she finished third in a crowded contest in February, Johnson took the stage Tuesday night for his victory speech, thanking supporters for helping usher in a new chapter in the history of our city, and he's promised that under his administration the city would look out for everyone, regardless of how much money they have, whom they love, or where they come from.

Chicago chooses between progressive, moderate for mayor
"Voters in Chicago are choosing a new mayor today. The mayoral runoff in Chicago pits Paul valles, a former CEO of Chicago schools against progressive Brandon Johnson, both Democrats finished ahead of incumbent mayor Lori Lightfoot in February's election, but did not get the 50% needed to win outright. The contest has centered on an increase in violent crime and soaring property taxes. This is no time for on the job training. Phallus is a moderate endorsed by Chicago's police union and major business groups. We've been decimated because of high crime they've been decimated because of escalating taxes. Brandon Johnson is a former teacher in union organizer who has the backing of the powerful teachers union. My lived experiences have shaped my political views. Johnson says the city should focus on mental health treatment, affordable housing and jobs for youth. Well, there's a direct correlation correlation between hiring young people and violence reduction. I'm Jennifer King
Trish Regan: The Connection Between Canceling Tests Scores & CRT
"I mean, you think about Columbia University. My Alma mater, by the way, saying, okay, you don't need the SAT anymore. Well, part of that is because it's rooted in this CRT, which came out of a lot of academia, specifically law schools, critical race theory, which suggests that you're never going to get a fair shot in this country. If you happen to be born black. And so we need to somehow correct this. And the idea is, well, if we have more people that we allow into these quote unquote Ivy League schools, they'll get that stamp of approval, which will enable them to be on a certain course in life. And the only way may be because unfortunately, and this gets back to some root issues to quote Kamala Harris, rue issues, we got education systems in so many poor minority communities that are beyond messed up Chicago, Compton, out in California and New York City. I did a story years ago about how kids were getting passed from grade to grade all the way to 12th grade. They couldn't read Mike. I mean, this is a problem. And so the answer is somehow, okay, well we're going to just get rid of SATs because we can bring all these people in and I think they're afraid of lawsuits because what about the poor kid who, you know, whose parents immigrated here from India or the Philippines and has been studying his tail off for years and years and years and gets a perfect score on the SAT and straight a's, but that child because he's from Asian descent may not be able to get in. They're preparing for this. There is an agenda. They think they can fix it this way with handouts with college degrees. And the truth is you can't because it goes back to something pretty simple. We need to do a better job organizing at the local level to ensure everybody's got some kind of access to opportunity. We don't do that. When you see Lori Lightfoot out in Chicago, thank goodness Chicago voted her out,
Joe Biden's D.C. Crime Stunner
"To Biden here. What is going on with him? We know he's out to lunch a lot. Seemingly incapacitated, much of the time. He suddenly, however, shocked the world's day by showing a willingness to get sort of tough on crime. The background for all of this, of course, is the situation in D.C., which is a total mess. Violent crime has surged in Washington, D.C.. I mean, you consider the numbers the way up from where we were in 2020. They went up in 2021, up about 23%. And then in 2023, gosh, already this year we have seen a very violent start to the year. This is according to The Washington Post with a murder rate in Washington, D.C. already up 40% over last year. So this is a problem. Every major city right now has a problem with crime and it's because of this war on police. Well, for politicians, it's now suddenly a problem. Because a Lori Lightfoot, the first incumbent in 40 years to get voted out of her mayor spot in Chicago, unbelievable. Let me just do this. So thank you and thank everyone so much. I feel a lot of love in this room. As I felt every step of the way on this journey. There's a reason why Lauren life is out, and it has to do with crime, the homicide rate, already this year in Chicago, up 63%, look, if there's one thing you ought to be able to count on from the government, it should be safety, basic safety and security, the people of Chicago, they get that, right? That's why they're sending her packing.
Lori Lightfoot Got What She Deserved
"To Lori Lightfoot. No surprise there. This was a woman who sought to divide a city that needed anything but division. That city needs to come together. People need safety in the streets, they need education in the classroom and instead in Chicago, those kids stayed out of school more than any other kids in the country. I mean, the inner city kids, they are the ones that really, really got hurt by COVID in terms of their educational opportunity. How can we be a fair country when you got leaders like lightfoot out there? Not pushing to make sure those kids are back in school. Not pushing to make sure that they are on a safe bus. On a safe street, she doesn't care about any of that. She made that evident over and over and over again. And so guess what? Voters said, you know what? We've had enough. They voted her out. Which was the right thing to do. When you look at the crime statistics, I mean, just off the charts, including just this year alone, the murder rate, the highest it's ever been. When you look at robberies, incredibly insane, high levels, so you know what? She got what she deserved. That's a case in which I think we can all take heart. There's an optimistic message here that Americans can only be pushed so far.
Lori Lightfoot Is Out As Mayor in Chicago
"The administration ought to take a look over at Chicago right now because you know what? When you allow crime to run rampant, when you leave your city in such a vulnerable state, eventually catches up to you. Lori Lightfoot out the first incumbent to lose her job in 40 years there in the windy city because people have had enough. This is a good sign, everyone. It's a very good sign Americans. We want our country back.
The Fight Against Grooming
"We've been talking about this groomer culture. I actually made a shirt on my online store at the office of Tatum store. Are you with Tatum store? I mean, I made it short. But I made a shirt on there this is anti my drink is in a way. Anti groomer, social club. It is hilarious because obviously we make the best merch in the game. But so many people are going and purchasing that shirt to stand up as a parent against these people trying to groom your kids. And you know, I was just reading this article from a PJ media and it says, it looks like the groomers didn't meet their quota last year. And it's just going through an articulating the amount of people that have, I don't want to say historically, maybe that's not the right term, but the amount of people that have decided to identify in the LGBTQ community and it's astounding how all of a sudden people are starting to be gay, you know, more people are being gay now. More people being trans, more people identifying as all kinds of they them and it's almost like they're trying to act like it's a natural thing. And in reality, it's grooming, they're exposing young people to these ideas in order to convince them, let me just give you an example. I'm going to keep it real on the radio today. Some of y'all, if y'all ain't ready for it, you might as well turn the channel. You got to understand this. Gay, and this is not every gay person. Clearly, gay men and women, they recruit. It's called turning somebody out. I've had people approach me on social media. And it's the one dude I went to school with. I thought he was a gangster. I don't boy hit me up like, what's up, bro? And I'm like, what's up? What's up, man? How you doing? I didn't really know him that way. I just remember him from school, and he's like, hey, man, I was gonna tell you something, but never mind. I'm like, oh, bro, what's up? I'm thinking, I'm thinking this dude is like watching me from afar, you know, he kind of admired what I'm doing and he wants some advice. So he's like, I was gonna ask you something, never mind, bro and in my mind, I'm like, bro, I'm not a celebrity or nothing, man. I can, you know, you can ask me something I give you some advice. He was like, I say, what is it, bro just tell me. He said, I was going to say I like you, but he said he liked me. I said, I don't know. I thought you'd go ask me for some advice, bro, you taught you like me. What do you mean you like me? Bro, man, what do you mean you like me? And he was saying, you know, so what he was doing was he was only communicating with me and trying to leverage his way into friendship with me just to kind of test me or something or drop the question on me.
Police Union Says LAPD Should Cut Back on Non-Emergency Calls
"Let me continue on with the conversation I was having about a certain cause that they're not going to send people to anymore. And in these woke cities, this is what you get with your taxpayer dollar. So they're not going to go to quality of life calls, which is homeless people doing whatever they want to do. Mental health calls which leads to people getting killed. Disturbance from juveniles, they don't even care about what juveniles do. They can just do whatever they want to do. Calls from the school, they don't care. Public health order violations, they don't care. Nonviolent calls for service at city parks. Now you got to think there's some cost for service that become violent. But until they kill you, they're not going to send anybody. Under the influence calls, alcohol drugs where there is no crime in progress. Not that there wasn't a crime committed, but there's no crime in progress. Check welfare. And these are things that are not going to send an armed police officer to. A check wherefore call. Do you know how asinine it is? For them to consider not sending an armed police officer to a check where for a car. Let me just give you an example of many things that could be a chick wear for a call. Hey, I haven't heard from my neighbor, I see flies in the window. It's a pretty good indication to that person's been dead for a couple of days. And so the police go in and check well for. But when they get there, how do you not know that the person had been dead for a few days, and somebody got them here hostage? Or there's a woman moaning inside of the house, but I don't know what it is. She sound like she's in distress, but I don't know what it is. You show up and she's being kidnapped and beaten to death. But it's a check welfare because there's no evidence that there's a crime. Nobody really knows what's going on. They hear a faint woman screaming in the background or making noise in the background. They don't know what it is. These calls like check welfare and the unknown cause a lot of times with something a lot more nefarious and police officers don't understand. I don't know until they get there.
Why Lori Lightfoot Wasn't Good for Chicago
"Chicago is way worse than what people think that it is. If you are not listening to drill music, and if you don't know what drill music is, it's a genre of music, only black people do this, by the way. Unfortunately, I guess fortunately, and unfortunately, it's unfortunate because they're black and it's fortunate because it's only one group of people doing it and not everybody. But it's called drill music. And so these guys are rapping about the proliferation of murder that they commit in their own communities and a lot of it happens in these cities like Chicago where they thugging to the cows come home. And then also in Chicago, you have gang wars and you have a lot of gang violence. So most of the murders are associated with gang violence. But kids get struck in the head, probably once a month in this combating drive by shooting, pull a jumping out, ski mask, type, behavior, and hoods of Chicago. And when you have a mayor that do not address these issues, why would anybody vote for her? She's a bad representation for the state. She's a bad representation for the city.
Lori Lightfoot's Downfall Is Bigger Than Just Chicago
"Laurie dirty foot is hanging up her slew foot and then big clown shoes because she is no longer the mayor of Chicago. Now it politics do not matter in this case. Meaning that I don't care what your political persuasion is. When your city is riddled with crime, people are fleeing your city because of the mismanagement and policies that have been put into place at the leadership of their, then you gotta just take it. Take the L and she ended up getting beat, she finished third place, there was two individuals, I don't think it's close enough to do a runoff or I think it's Paul villas. I don't know if it's part of valis or virus virus, it could be valid so virus, I don't know. You know, the ales sometimes yeah, I think that's how you say it anyway. Y'all get what I'm saying. Paul. Ended up winning a 172,000 votes, a guy named Brandon Johnson won, I would not want, but he was second place at a 103,000 votes and then Laurie dirty foot clown shoes ended up getting 86,000 votes. She got 17% of the vote. Respectively, Paul got 33% of the vote.
Chicago Voters Pronounce Their Verdict on Their Current Mayor
"Oh God. Welcome to the truism hour on the Dennis prager show. So good. Lori Lightfoot, there you go. You got a real, that was a beauty. You got a female, the women could really feel solidarity, what women feel solidarity with the trans woman? When it really came to push come to shove in the ballot box, would most women say, oh, good. I'm voting for a woman. I don't care if it's a trans woman. I don't know the answer to that. But that would be an interesting test of whether or not people on the left believe their lies. A world of lies, like men give birth. And so many others.
Love Who You Want to Love?
"Lori Lightfoot has asked me we were fierce political leader as I have lived through in my life, this is what she said upon not being renominated. Marie elected, as mayor of Chicago. And these last few months, but I will be rooting and praying for our next mayor to deliver for the people of the city for years to come. Thank you. What do I have in common with your supporters that we both have a liver and a pancreas? Go on, Sean. Four years ago, four years ago, I looked into the camera and spoke directly to young people of color who looked like me and to every kid who felt like I did. When I grew up. And I'm going to do that again tonight. I told you back then that anything is possible with hard work. And I want you to know that no matter what happens along the way. You should always believe that because it's true. All right, hold on. So what I want to wait, wait, wait, wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait so anything is possible with hard work that I'm not kidding is a beautiful message. Continue, please. That you can bring about change. Believe that you matter. And believe that you can love who you want to love and do what you want to do and be who you want to be. You are the way to analyze this love who you want to love. It's such a big line. It's a dishonest line. I don't know anybody, well, that's not true. There's always somebody. The issue was not you can love whom you want to love. The issue was, I mean, I know what she's referring to, and you know what she's referring to. She's referring to same sex marriage.
The Worst Mayor in Chicago History Is Gone!
"Home Chicago. Yesterday, the first round of voting happened in the Chicago mayor's race and beetlejuice, Lori Lightfoot has been defeated. Now we should enjoy that for just a second. And we should talk about why that is the case. Why is it that Lori Lightfoot was soundly defeated? She finished third place, not even to make the runoff. And first place was Paul valles, who was a Democrat and for years he was considered to be not exactly a moderate Democrat, but by new standards he's actually more moderate than the Marxist Brandon Johnson, who is also going to make the runoff. So it went valis Johnson and lightfoot. Lightfoot has been the mayor of Chicago, the last couple of years, and she is without a doubt the worst mayor in Chicago history. And that says something because there's been some pretty bad leaders in the history of Chicago. And one of the things that frustrates me the most as someone who grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and loved Chicago is that this is not that hard. There are three very basic things. That you have to do as mayor. Just really basic things. Make the streets safe, try to improve your schools every single year and don't borrow money you don't have and have basically have some sort of a vibrant economic plan or model that is implemented. That's it really simple and basically any city is like that. You take New York City, New York City was declining. Rudy Giuliani became mayor and turned that place around. And Bloomberg to his great credit was a moderate mayor and New York was a safe place for years. Now if there are other issues to homeless, homelessness, that plays into clean and safe streets. And it does beg a question, why is it that Democrats are so comfortable running cities that are becoming so enjoyable, so messy? It's because they're ideology actually is more important than the reality. So
Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago Loses Her Bid for Re-Election
"I wanted to talk in this opening segment about China, but before I do, I want to take a bemused note of the fact that Lori Lightfoot has been defeated. Now, frankly, I didn't really see this coming because I thought that this woman miserable wreck though she is. Nevertheless, what do you expect Chicago? This is the kind these are the kinds of places that elect creatures like Lori Lightfoot, AKA beetlejuice, but apparently even the chicagoans have had enough. They're like, no, we're going to look in a different direction. Now, what is that direction? There are two other contenders. By the way, it was like a ten man race. She came in like third. So she's out. But the race is between two other guys, apparently one of them is somewhat more moderate, the other guys are real, leftist and a radical. So in the next couple of days, I'll talk a little bit more about who these resumed successors are and where this may all end up, but for now I just want to say bye bye. Beetlejuice.

"And of course, Biden accused Trump of fanning racism in his criticism of the Chinese government over the pandemic. And when Biden later revived an investigation, reluctantly I'd add into the origins of the virus, Biden denounced, he was denounced rather as sugar coating Trump's racism. This is, this is really about censorship. The scandal here is censorship. The media guaranteed that we did not have a full debate over the origins of the virus and attacked anyone who had the temerity to state the obvious that there was a plausible basis for suspecting the Wuhan lab. And Charlie goes on to point out that the Twitter files revealed an extensive and secret FBI effort to censor citizens on social media. This included undisclosed efforts by people like Adam Schiff to get Twitter to ban a columnist and target critics. In a house hearing, democratic leaders like representative Jamie rashkin called for more censorship and opposed investigations into the censorship efforts. Biden previously called for more censorship and accused big tech of killing people by not censuring more views that were deemed COVID miss information. Jonathan truly points out the opposite is true by suppressing alternative scientific and policy views. The public was denied a full debate over mask efficacy, vaccine side effects, COVID origins, and other important issues. Many of these questions are only being recognized as legitimate and worthy of debate. Censorship does not as Biden claims save lives. It is more likely he says to cost lives by protecting approved views from challenge. It does not foster the truth any more than it fosters free speech. Whatever the origin of COVID-19 may be in China, the origins of our censorship scandal is closer to home. It's a really smart analysis of the biggest scandal that I'm not kidding you. This is the biggest scandal. I've ever witnessed as an adult with 62 years on this planet. The way the left has embraced censorship and a totalitarian way of shutting down any view that questions the narrative is disgraceful, it's appalling. It's corrupt and it should be criminal. We're going to kind of focus on that theme and stick around as we roll along on this Wednesday episode of the Mike Gallagher show. Great to have you here. Wednesday, the 1st of March, 2023.

Mike Gallagher, every day Mike visits with Mark Davis, morning host on 6 60 a.m. the answer in Dallas. Here's today's Eminem experience. My salt we throw some love to the windy city Mike because those voters have at least some degree of wisdom. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. Every once in a while, you are correct. Okay, Lori Lightfoot, it's a nonpartisan election, meaning nobody runs as an R, nobody runs as a D there were like ten people running. And if somebody gets 51 vote more than 50%, you're the next mayor of Chicago. In a busy field, people thought there would be a runoff, but they surely thought that Lori Lightfoot would make that runoff being one of the top two. She was a distant, distant third, and the competition will now be behind former Chicago public schools, CEO, Paul valles, and Cook County commissioner, Brandon Johnson. They had 39 33 and 20%, respectively, and Lori Lightfoot, the first mayor to fail to get reelection in Chicago in more than 40 years, got 17 percent. Wow. Was a landslide. And incidentally, don't get too excited about Paul valles. Check out what he said about Ron DeSantis recently. Nobody should pretend to go ahead. He's a fascist, and he's a human being. I mean, and this is a weird thing because the FOP, the local police union, endorsed him, and then they invited desantis, and then he denounced desantis. So it's just kind of strange. It's typical Chicago politics. I mean, it's always, that's how they roll, but golly, what a glorious, rebuke of woke ism. Incidentally, Lori Lori Lightfoot was asked, apparently this morning, if she was treated unfairly, and her answer was, well, I'm a black woman in America of treated unfairly by whom. Well, I have no question. No question. Let's make a possible by the media. Are you kidding me? She checked both the black box and the gay box, meaning she was going to be absolutely coddled and revered and ushered through one of the most disastrous stewardships of a city in recent American history..

"We're visiting with Dan prof. He's a morning host on a.m. 5 60, the answer in Chicago, our station in Chicago, proud to be on their team and always love to catch up with you, Dan, when we have a chance. I want you to hear a little bit of Lori Lightfoot's concession speech. He also told a reporter apparently this morning who said, were you treated unfairly? And she said, well, of course, I'm a black woman in America. And here's a little bit of her concession speech last night. Four years ago, four years ago, I looked into the camera and spoke directly to young people of color who looked like me and to every kid who felt like I did. When I grew up. And I'm going to do that again tonight. I told you back then that anything is possible with hard work. And I want you to know that no matter what happens along the way, you should always believe that because it's true. Believe that you can bring about change. Believe that you matter. And believe that you can love who you want to love and do what you want to do and be who you want to be. You will not be defined by how you fall. You will be defined by how hard you work, and how much you do. Good for other people. Well, I would agree with her that anything is possible, including your landslide defeat, mayor lightfoot. Can you imagine her saying that the reason she lost now is because she's a black woman in America and she was treated unfairly? Well, I mean it's how she ended this how she started. And it's the tale of Lori Lightfoot. That's why you got demolished yesterday. She once you won a rent she ran and then once she said, I'm the triple threat. I'm black. I'm gay, and I'm female. So she didn't identify herself by her heart work and want people to judge her by her hard work. She wanted to be a judge by her identity. And so now she's playing the role of the victim, which is just preposterous given the field and given Brandon Johnson. But she's not, but Dan, she's but she's not alone. But she and all the unions that play identity politics the same way she does. So that's sort of Charlotte Rae is why people tired of Lori Lightfoot. I just wonder if we're going to get different varietals at the same race hustle but from the two perspective mayoral. But that victim grievance is not alone. It's not unique to Lori Lightfoot. This is a strategy. This is a tactic of the left. I mean, again, for crying out loud, we live in a country where a black woman is a heartbeat away from the presidency. Second most powerful person in the government is a black woman, and yet Lori Lightfoot wants to paint a landscape, this is a country that's so grossly unfair to black women. It's like, boy, try to have your cake and eat it too. I want to be my qualification for a job is because I'm a black woman, and then if I lose, it's because I'm a black woman. Boy, it kind of kind of convenient to have it both ways. Well, it's a way to issue a kind of ability, you know? What happened on my watch is not my fault. The fact that Chicago continues to lead the nation and murders and has every year since I've been mayor. That's not my fault. The economic department in Chicago, the company is leaving Chicago. The residents fleeing Chicago like it's on fire, which it was several times during her tenure. That's not my fault. So it's got to be somebody else's. It's white supremacy.

"Help us help them today. Mike Gallagher. So we found the quote to from Paul valles. Again, typical Chicago situation, the FOP endorses him, and then the FOP invites desantis to come speak. So of course, now he's between a rock and a hard place. And here's what he said. I wholeheartedly agree with governor pritzker that there is simply no place in Chicago for a right wing extremist like Ron DeSantis. And I'm disappointed in FOP leadership for inviting him to speak. And then he goes on to lie about desantis, banning desantis record of banning books on black history. That's such a bald faced lie. He's not banning books on black history. This is not in line with my values, the values of our community or the values of the rank and file police officers who I believe have no interest in getting swept up in culture wars. Why don't you talk to some of the cops in Chicago and see if they don't align very nicely with desantis or Trump or a typical Republican. So believe me, before we get out the ticker tape parade materials for Paul valles, this guy's a piece of work too. But he's no Lori Lightfoot because Lori Lightfoot as mayor of Chicago is no more Dan prof is the morning host on a.m. 5 60. The answer in Chicago, along with Amy Jacobson. Dan, you're smiling today. I think a lot of chicagoans are probably enjoying this defeat of Lori Lightfoot. A little too much. Well, yeah, when more than 8 in ten chicagoans vote against the incumbent mayor, then that's a pretty strong indicator that it's time for somebody new and most chicagoans understand that. But as you were saying with balance and certainly with his opponent Brandon Johnson to today, last night and today we celebrate for tomorrow, we may be in base embracing maximum Marxism. And so that's the concern is it's good to issue a repudiation of lightfoot, but come April 4th, the runoff election, are we going to see things really improve in the city of Chicago and I'm a skeptic. Yeah, and I was just talking to a caller before you joined us who was telling us a little bit about this Brandon Johnson, but in the scheme of things, I think we probably need to, as you said, embrace the moment, at least. This is historic. I was reading this as the first time in 40 years, a one term Chicago mayor has been defeated. Yeah, I mean, you know, it's a, you're very familiar with machine towns. This has been a machine town for a long time. And the powers of a competency are massive for the mayor of the city of Chicago. So you really have to make an effort to destroy yourself the way that Lori Lightfoot did. A body politic that actually agrees with you when it comes to policies. Remember, this was not a repudiation of Lori Lightfoot policies. It was a repudiation of the consequences of her policies that a lot of chicagoans otherwise support when they don't connect the dots. But more than anything, it was a repudiation of her personality. She was just so personally off putting to personally disdainful that people had enough of her, and so they decided to rearrange the deck chairs, but we're still sailing toward the iceberg. But what I'm excited about Dan is seeing a rejection even in a blue blue city like Chicago of these progressive progressives who believe in this radical criminal justice reform as they like to call it. And you know, you look throughout the country, you look at Larry krasner in Pennsylvania, Alvin Bragg, in New York, Kim Foxx in your town. I mean, you've got these progressives who somehow believe that the whole system is racist and rigged and therefore we're not going to have cash bail. We're not going to sentence people to jail for crimes and it's not working. I mean, you saw the video of the young black guy who just executed a white homeless guy in St. Louis this week. It was captured on video. This is very real for these cities..

"I think he calls desantis a fascist and it was a weird situation. The Chicago FOP and I'm going to ask our buddy Dan prof about this at the bottom of the hour, the morning answer host in Chicago on a.m. 5 60, the answer Dan proft is going to join us to talk about the Lori Lightfoot humiliating defeat. And it is stunning. It is stunningly humiliating for the Democrats for her for progressives. I mean, this is a real blow, a real body blow to the mind, the George Soros mindset that progressives are really good for communities. The district attorneys who don't believe in truth and sentencing and mayors like Lori Lightfoot who think it's racist to put a black guy in jail for a crime that they committed. They've taken a big, big, big defeat with the loss of Lori Lightfoot. Incidentally, she was asked by a reporter, gosh, I hope we can find this on tape. So far, there's no video or audio of it. But a reporter asked her if she had been treated unfairly, she answered, I'm a black woman in America. Of course, I'm a black woman in America, that's why you lost, but why did you win? How did you become mayor of Chicago? Weren't you a black woman? When you were elected, I guess being a black woman only only hurts you when you lose, but we're a country. You look around sometimes, astounding to me. How many black presidents, prime ministers, potentates, do countries have all over the world? We're a country that saw 8 years of a black man in the Oval Office. I don't believe that we've solved every racial problem in America. We got a long way to go. There's still a lot of racial strife and unrest, and I get that there are cynicism and communities with policing, we're far from perfect. But we're better than most and for a country that has seen major cities run by black men and women, a country run by a black man for two terms for Lori Lightfoot to cry bigotry and racism as the reason for her defeat is really, really rich, isn't it? And I have to admit, I'm enjoying it a little too much. 806 5 5 mic are toll free number and I hope you join us here. If you're in Chicago and you're smiling today and again, just be a little wary of this Paul valles. He's going to face off against another progressive Brandon Johnson, he's no Ronald Reagan either.

The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan. Now, from the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike Gallagher. What is it they say about revenge? It's a dish best served cold when Kayleigh McEnany was The White House press secretary, the former mayor of Chicago, the outgoing mayor, Lori Lightfoot called Caylee, a Karen, and you know the expression, Karen is a busybody, nosy neighbor who goes to the manager and complains about something. Lori Lightfoot comic with that she is referred to Kayleigh McEnany as a Karen after Lori Lightfoot's landslide defeat in Chicago where the voters woke up and rejected woke and rejected the crazed far left radical anti police ideology of Lori Lightfoot, Kayleigh McEnany had an opportunity to do a little gloating last night. I stood at the podium in The White House and I called out Chicago's crime because in the Trump White House, we cared about the victims of crime. She responded and called me a Karen. So she had enough time to call out The White House press secretary as a Karen rather than focusing on crime in her city. So I loved your dance moves. That was fun to watch on TikTok, although they really weren't. They weren't good. But sorry, Karen, here you lost. Ouch. Ouch is right. Hey, Karen, lightfoot you lost. And it turns out that critics, of course, are her critics are breathing a sigh of relief, of course, under Lori Lightfoot, Chicago has seen soaring crime rates. She had a terrible relationship with law enforcement. Now, I don't want you to get too excited about Paul valles. He's the Chicago public schools CEO. He does seem to be decidedly more supportive of police than she was, but did you hear what he said about Ron DeSantis a couple of weeks ago? I mean, it was brutal..

Would be you, we would we the all of our allies would be united or divided. Should we play clips like that a million times free over the past few years we could play a million more because Joe Biden talks like that every day. At this point, it's how he talks. Joe Biden is losing his ability to speak. That's not a secret. It's not something you learn from our confidential sources and are bringing to you for the first time genetic exclusively that is obvious to the entire world. And you'll probably sound like that too if you make it to Joe Biden's age. We will also, it's not weird, it's natural. It's not an attack on Joe Biden hardly. It's an observation. But because it's natural, we have been commanded to ignore it. He's right. He's absolutely right. And you know what I like. It feels like the American people are starting to say, you're not telling me what to ignore or how I can think anymore. We've had it. We've had it with the thought the thought police. We've had it with being censored, being stifled. The American people are fed up. And apparently chicagoans were fed up. That's an incredible story. I didn't really, I wasn't too excited about Chicago. I thought, nah. The Chicago voters won't get it right. She got clobbered. And I'm reading here that moments ago, the Democrat Chicago mayor blamed racism and her gender for her landslide defeat. A reporter asked if she had been treated unfairly and I thought, by whom the media, you think the media treated Lori Lightfoot unfairly, but the reporter teeter up for the perfect answer, I'm a black woman in America, of course. I'm a black woman, let's not forget. Shirt and folks, frankly, don't support us in leadership roles. That's an embarrassment. That's an absolute embarrassment. And to see that crime skyrocketed on her watch, everybody knows it. When you're woke, that doesn't work with law enforcement or policing. Or the judicial system, being woke doesn't work, the bad guys, what woke. They want no cash bail. They want to get away with crimes and not be incarcerated. They want to be able to torch police cars and shock cops in the mouth and not be held accountable. Lori Lightfoot and Chicago proves it. This is an amazing thing what happened. She didn't lose, she got clobbered. It was a landslide. It was a 1315% or something she got? She didn't lose. She got trounced. And it gives me hope, it gives me hope for this country. I am hopeful. I'm cautiously optimistic that we're about to start getting things right..

"Did people say that rich daily? Held a tea sessions with people that he didn't disagree on. Rob, Emmanuel, was a polite guy who was a uniter? No. Women and people of color are always held to a different standard. I understand that. I've known that my whole life. Amazing. Intersectionality is always soared and shield. It also allows her to suggest that, of course, her own failures are the result of systemic racism. So back in June of 2021, as the murder rate was already skyrocketing in her city, disaster area, she was still doing COVID lockdowns and all the rest. She was declaring racism a public health crisis in June of 2021. When we think about racism, many of us think about its visible and audio audible forms. But the reality is the insidious nature of systemic racism has other impacts. There are every bit as deep and harmful. So again, sword and shield, it allows you to claim that all the problems in your city are the result of systemic racism and also any critique of you is about that same exact sort of racism. Well, here's the problem. At a certain point, your citizens get sick of this bull crap. At a certain point your citizens say no, we would actually like to live in a city that is livable. And we don't care about your intersectional bona fides. And we don't care that the media are going to treat you with kid gloves because you're a black lesbian. We don't care about any of that. They're off putting your terrible at your job, goodbye. So we all been a fond farewell to Lori Lightfoot but the problem is that the sort of thought process that put Lori Lightfoot in place in the first place. These sort of ideology that made Lori Lightfoot, a hero to the left, that is still alive and well in major cities all across the United States. And the chickens, as I say, are not going to only come home to roots for Lori Lightfoot. They're going to come home to roost for a lot of the radical leftists who are in positions of local state and federal power, so long as they mimic the stupidity of the policies of people like Lori Lightfoot. That is particularly true in the city of St. Louis. In just a second we're going to get to the most horrific story of the day in St. Louis because St. Louis is basically attempting to do exactly what Lori Lightfoot did in Chicago. And some of the public officials there are about to feel the same exact heat. First, you know, you look at the news, it's hard to sleep. For me, on a personal level, I have three young kids, I have a dog, the dog wakes me up at all hours of the night.
"lori lightfoot" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"Well, Lori Lightfoot's political failure does raise the question as to why it took so long for her to fail. And the answer, of course, is the intersectionality. Everyone recognized pretty quickly, lower life it was not up to the job. She was bad at the job, she was nasty about her job. But she was able to get away with it because of course she was a black lesbian. And this is the thing that matters more than anything else in American politics is your identity status, which is why she kept calling upon it. So back in July of 2021, for example, she literally said that she would only give interviews to black reporters, which is about as racist a thing as a public official has ever said. It's an amazing thing. That's literally saying that you will own of any race. If I said, I'm only giving interviews to white reporters. That would make you a racist, right? That made me a racist. Lori Lightfoot says this sort of stuff, no problem. Your office says that you invite it black and brown journalists to this round of interview. Why? I'm happy to vouch for Craig law for Heather Sharon and others. Well, look, I think in this one day, when we are looking at the two year anniversary of my inauguration, as one of the color as a lesbian, it's important to me that diversity is put front and center. That's it. Diversity, diversity. Well, why is it important for lower life with that diversity is front and center? Because that's the only reason she's mayor of Chicago. And that was always her constant defense. July 2021, there's a lot of critique of her performance because she's a bad mayor. So what did she say? She said literally 99% of all criticism of Lori Lightfoot was racist and sexist. So what does she now have to say about the citizens of Chicago who have voted her out? Mayor in recent months there have been questions raised about your temperament and your reaction to criticism, a tribune editorial used the term irascible, how much of this do you think might have to do with the fact that you're a woman and specifically a black woman? About 99% of it, expand on that. Well, I mean,
"lori lightfoot" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"Okay, so again, why did the crime rates spike under Lori Lightfoot? Well, because she hated the cops. Because she was dramatically opposed to police department at every single step. Go back to the summer, the actual summer of love in Chicago. That would of course be 2020 during the George Floyd, riots. And over and over and over again, Lori Lightfoot undermined the cops. So back in July of 2020, for example, she was yelling about not allowing Donald Trump's troops to come into the city to shut down riots in the city. Meanwhile, the loop was being completely vandalized. She tweeted out July 21st, 2020, quote, under no circumstances while I allow Donald Trump's troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents. Meanwhile, the residents are being terrorized by literal rioters in the street. She was having open arguments with her own aldermen, the alderman were like, you are not doing a good job of championing young crime. And she starts yelling at her alderman and telling them that they are literally full of bleep, right? This is the kind of person that Lori Lightfoot was. What are we going to do? And what do we tell our residents other than good faith people stand up? It's not going to be enough. Thank you, honor. Next question. No, I want an answer. You commented on everybody. I want an answer. It's not something you ignore. This is a question that I have. I think you're a 100% full of slides. If you think we want to present you this. Lori Lightfoot, again, go back to May, and her initial comments about George Floyd is that she took Floyd's death incredibly personally and also went out of her way to rip Donald Trump. When you rip the cops when you rip the president, when he suggests that there ought to be no federal presence in the city when you can't handle your own stuff, it turns out that crime goes up and the PD hated Lori Lightfoot, as well, they should have, because she was terrible for the PD. She was consistently undermining the ability of the police to do their jobs. And it wasn't just with regard to crime, it was also with regard to COVID. So Lori Lightfoot was the lockdown fanatic extraordinaire. So it began with Lori Lightfoot really locking down the city as tight as you could possibly lock it down. In March and April, you'll remember, and all the way back in April of 2020, she actually went to her hairstylist and she was caught on camera, visiting her hairstylist. And then her defense was absurd. She said it was essential because she was mayor of the city that she get her hair done. She needed her hair done. It was really, really necessary. This is the kind of person that Lori Lightfoot is. We are trying to do the best that we can at our difficult circumstances. I am practicing social distancing. The woman who cut my hair at a mask at gloves on, so we are I'm practicing what I'm preaching and making sure I don't typically take pictures these days. But we are trying to do everything we can to emphasize the messages around social distancing, washing your hands, staying at home, but elected official and the public face of the city. I need to make sure that I am out there and visible through this crisis. And then, she didn't shut down COVID in the city as it turns out, because not possible. But that didn't stop her from in October of 2020. Declare on herself rona destroyer, I'm not getting you. This is the greatest club. This is the mayor of Chicago. In the middle of the pandemic, declaring herself to destroyer of coronavirus, she'd shut down pretty much all the businesses in the city. She had locked everybody down, all the schools were closed. She was doing the bidding of the teachers unions, all the rest of it. And here she was dressing up as rona destroyer. Why is this why did she lose political viability? No one knows. No one knows.

"Mayor Lori Lightfoot doesn't even make it past the first round of voting in Chicago. A St. Louis man shoots a homeless man point blank on the street and we examine the reasons why, and the Supreme Court considers striking down Joe Biden's student loan bailout as Democrats wine. I'm Ben Shapiro this is the bench bureau show. Well, Lori Lightfoot, the smeagol of American politics, a person who began as sort of a semi charming hobbit and then ended up being really just a quite terrible person who helped wreck Chicago's politics even further. She has now failed in her reelected the first mayor to fail in a reelected in Chicago in 40 years because Chicago is a one party town Chicago is a place where when the party appoints someone the head of the party, that person stays there for literally ever. Daily family ran that city for decades because of this. Lori Lightfoot did not last two terms because she was that bad a mayor. According to The Wall Street Journal, mayor Lori Lightfoot lost her reelect bid by failing to Garner enough votes to make even a runoff election. So she wasn't one of the top two. She was like number three in this election, which is pretty shocking. The top two, by the way, included a person who last time he ran for mayor, actually was endorsed by the Chicago Republican Party all 7 of them. This is a stunning fall for a candidate, but one all 50 of the city's wards four years ago, but inspired with powerful teachers unions and been under fire for her response to rising a crime. The Associated Press declared Tuesday night that Paul valles and more moderate Democrats who had won the support of the city's police union, ah, there you are. And Brandon Johnson a liberal teacher's union organizer secured the top two spots in April's runoff election. Again, the guy who won the most votes is actually police friendly. He's a little bit more investor friendly. He's somebody who's not nearly as radical as Lori Lightfoot, lightfoot ran in third place. It was the first time in 40 years the city did not elect a sitting at mayor who sought reelection. She told supporters on Tuesday that she had called Dallas and Johnson to congratulate them and that she appreciated the love that her supporters had shown her during the campaign, unfortunately, there were only 7 of them. So she actually didn't hug them personally, which I guess was very exciting for Lori Lightfoot. And this should remind us that what goes up in American politics does come down that the laws of political gravity apply. The real reason that Lori Lightfoot is no longer going to be the mayor of Chicago is because she was a terrible mayor. She was abrasive. She was rude. She was nasty. She wasn't indeed racist, and she also happened to not do anything about the massive crime problems inside the city. In fact, according to wire points dot org, Chicago's 2022 homicide rate is 5 times higher than that of New York City and 2.5 times higher than Los Angeles. Those numbers aren't just host George Floyd, host COVID, about a year ago, where points looked at a study of Chicago's homicide rate, found the city broke ranks from New York and in LA in the 1990s and it never dropped. Overall crime is up 37% over 2021 and 20% over the pre George Floyd 2019. Carjackings are set to hit nearly 2000 this year or one every 5 hours. This year alone at 35 Chicago children have been murdered so far. That was as of September 2022. So yeah, she did a horrendous job. It wasn't just that she did a horrendous job, however. It is worth noting here that Lori Lightfoot, who was treated by the media as a godsend, because she was intersectional as all hell, Lori Lightfoot, she was a woman of color who was also a lesbian, which means that she was sent from on high by the angels to be mayor of Chicago. In fact, she was so intersectional, she was like, she was the closest thing that we have ever had. The most intersectional person in the United States which meant she should have been amazing at her job, right? Because diversity is our strength in all of this. Well, it turns out she was crap at her job. David axelrod, who of course, is a Chicago insider among Chicago insiders. He said, everybody strength is their weakness. Her strength is she's a very pugilistic person. She's fought for everything she's gotten in her life. She antagonized a lot of people, those chickens are coming home to roost. He said the uncompromising nature of her personality, the lack of relationships with other people she has to deal with constructively. They wind up being very, very damaging. Yeah, well, that happens to obviously be the case. And this requires us to take a bit of a journey through time to remind you all who Lori Lightfoot was, because one of the things that Lori Lightfoot's ouster tells us is that the chickens are going to come home to roost not just for Lori Lightfoot, but for the entire radical left. It's going to happen. 2020 22. The Democratic Party, which is associated itself with the radical left, escaped the guillotine blade because Republicans decided to raid the local homeless shelter for candidates. But that does not mean that gravity is not going to apply. They're going to continue floating up there. Like the Chinese spy balloon, they will, in fact, be shot down and they will plummet to earth and it will crash and hurt when that happens. You remember back to the pandemic. There were three mayors above all other mayors were treated by the media as amazing at their job. They were actually terrible at their job. Lori Lightfoot in Chicago, Eric garcetti in Los Angeles, Bill de Blasio, in New York. De Blasio left in disgrace. He then ran for Congress and couldn't even make a runoff. Eric garcetti left he was thinking about running for Senate. He didn't even get an ambassador slot under Joe Biden. And now Lori Lightfoot has become the first Chicago mayor in 40 years not to even, not forget winning reelection. She didn't even make the runoff. You understand how bad that is. She didn't make the top two candidates. Tap two. She was number three as a horrible strong for Lori Lightfoot. And again, there is a reason for that. So let us review the reasons why. So let's begin with Lori Lightfoot on crime, because crime is, in fact, a major issue for the people who live in Chicago. Well, it turns out that because Lori Lightfoot has not clamped down on the crime. A lot of major corporations are like, we don't feel like investing in your city. And Lori Lightfoot because she is quite a terrible person. Her response to this is to tell the CEOs that they need to educate themselves. This is Lori Lightfoot September 2022. Any remarks to counter the McDonald's CEO who says, people are afraid to come back to the headquarters. Well, I think that what would have been helpful is for the McDonald's CEO to educate himself before he spoke. So when corporations asked Lori Lightfoot about crime, she immediately tried them this way. And then, of course, he's no exception for loyal life, which she's very abrasive. She's not a nice person. And the kind of bizarre mix between Lori Lightfoot, the reality of living in Chicago, which means you might get shot or you might get locked down and pretty much any time under Laurie lightfoot. And her bizarre demeanor really is not amazing. Back in April of last year, she was talking about there's going to be a summer of joy in Chicago. Meanwhile, people are getting shot on mass in her city. And folks just wait till Memorial Day and our summer, it will be the summer of joy in Chicago. It was not in fact a summer of joy in Chicago because, of course, people were getting carjacked on a routine basis. And Laura lightford always had somebody else to blame. She blamed remote learning for an increase in carjackings. Yes, that was the issue. It was not how you undermine the police, as we'll get to in just a moment.
