She just wants the police officers in Chicago fired. She wants to fire the cops. For not following the vaccine mandate. But she doesn't have to follow the mask mandate that she imposed. She's Lori Lightfoot. Biden doesn't need to follow the mask mandate that he imposed. He's Joe Biden. That's the point they know. You think Joe Biden doesn't know he's gonna get photographed? He's the president of the United States. You think somebody's gonna take his picture? Is he's walking through a restaurant? Well, of course they are. He doesn't care. Heck, Lori Lightfoot's picture. The one that she's sitting there grinning ear to ear in the crowd full of masked up people, you know why the people in the stands are mashed up 'cause they have to, 'cause that is the rules.

"About what's going on in the City Council with Mayor Lightfoot. Who? Alderman Lopez generally does not agree completely. And what do you two agree about? You guys have a favorite dessert, Or is there some place that the minds meet with you and marry Lightfoot? Alderman Lopez? We agree that the sun will rise in the morning. I think that's about it. You are her Edvard Iliac, I think is this that we're kind of feel like we're getting back to the council Words of my youth. I think people like to make that kind of comparisons that the most recent in memory where we've seen all them in and the mayor fight, But I think our differences are not race for, uh or based on skin color. We have very much ideological differences, which I think is Very much noticeable. When you look at the coalition of people who seem to constantly be standing up against her, they trained they be incorporate many demographics in many parts of the city of Chicago. Unlike fight to the past, which usually look white Mama You broke up for a second there, Alderman Lopez. You there? E thought I've got married life. Forget you there for a second. Um, you're right. It is much different, of course, And there's two ways to look at things you know, there used to be a City council. That was a bit of a rubber stamp. Apologize if you don't like that, But under Mary Manual, certainly under Mayor Daley In the past, it seemed that everybody agreed on a lot that the mayor wanted or the negotiations were in back rooms and a lot of things past pretty pretty solidly. And now we're getting to a point where there's more disagreement, more discussion. That's not necessarily a bad thing. And one might even argue that that's the point of it. You know, the Senate is supposed to argue about things in City Council shouldn't just be a rubber stamp. You guys should argue and try to find the best solutions and push people back and forth. There should be checks and balances. So would you say that? Hey, let's not think this is the worst thing in the world that we're all fighting about things. No, I don't think it's I don't think it's bad it all that alderman and the mayor are sometimes at odds with each other. As long as what what you produced at the end of the day is for the betterment of the city of Chicago. If you're just fighting to be petty and bitter and personal Obviously, what we're doing is wrong. But if you're actually fighting to make a difference, and to train push and pull the other side to make a more perfect law or a better program, it's absolutely worth it. We only have a couple of minutes after I do want to ask you Alderman Lopez. I apologize because this wasn't on the docket to talk about today. But you were talking a lot about transparency and what you want out of out of the mayor and out of City Council and out of all of our elected politicians. And so I just want to ask you about the Puppy Mill ordinance because the Tribune wrote an article a couple of weeks ago about a puppy mill ordinance here in Chicago that it's been around for a while. That you're proposing in New Orleans and they're saying you've received from donations from from pet stores that they're tying into your what? They're calling reversal on this policy. Can you comment on that for me? We received our we were. We were in receipt of almost 2000 donations, which we were coming back to the people who sent them dollars in donations right now, $2000, right? Not 2000. Correct? Nearly Yeah. $2000 in donations, which we sent back to those people invested or owners of pet stores. At the end of the day. What we have seen is that the ordinance that is being proposed to try to close the loopholes with regards to puppy mills from 2014 creates a whole new set of of Loopholes that are going to allow for backyard breeding throughout every neighborhood in the city of Chicago. Another loophole This ordinance that was produced by myself and introduced by altering Coleman and I worked to try to put some standards when it comes to both rescues and pet shops. And where the sourcing of animals comes from. Let's be very clear about something dead. The ordinance that deals with puppy mills has not closed a single puppy mill. Anywhere in this country, and the language that is introduced by Ultimate Coleman and myself, has, in fact been accepted as great language by the Humane Society and other parts of the country. So why they have an objection to it being used here is beyond me, whether those donations to get your point Had any influence? No, because I didn't accept the donation. They were all turned back. Which is why most of the donations that were given do not show up on my report because it checks were sent back without ever being cashed. Is it true that the part of your proposal would be that, um, breeders that were found to be in good standing would be a you know, stores would be allowed to sell from breeders. Listen, I have ah, pure bred golden Golden doodle that I got from a place in in Indiana that that I found online and researched a little bit And I knew you know what I could that it was good. And so the tough part, though, is it seems, is that how is that regulated if a pet store was allowed to sell a puppy because we know it came from a good facility. How are we regulating and knowing that That is a good facility that they're getting that puppy from Well, there's certainly English that is in the ordinance that has been used in both at the federal level, which was advocated for by the Humane Society off the United States has been incorporated in this so that everything is Basically on a universal standard, but also when it comes to the fact that.

"And here. W g N yur. Friday's going well, It's 1 33 this afternoon and again we did. We want to talk a little bit later about the new policies for this weekend that the superintendent And the mayor unveiled how they're going to be handling things. Did you get any of the highlights there? Steve Trended. From what? What you're seeing there. What's going to be different? We've heard about the bridges maybe used to go up. To sort of isolate downtown. We've heard that there's a curfew in effect 9 p.m. to six AM, unless you live in the area or work in the area need to be in the area that you're not allowed in the area certain areas downtown. I didn't know what else they were. They were mentioning there at the the news conference. Did you know they talked about a new social media task force, which is what I think Brendan Reilly was on with you talking about. Earlier this week to pay more attention to post and mayor Lightfoot says it will be monitored 24 hours a day. You know just politically, well more than politically, but it was significant that state's attorney Kim Foxx, was there alongside the mayor thought that that they were talking together because you know that reporting was and they will look. They were sniping at each other. Especially the mayor earlier this week, So I think they made a real effort to show a united front and Fox was talking about, you know that that they will prosecute looters. And even if you're just in the car with someone else who's stealing that, you know you are committing a crime and things like that, so I think they had a couple of messages there. They also talked about streets and sand being available to Help block off areas. They're going to put some concrete barriers up in areas and just generally, you know, I almost hate talking too much about this because it it sounds. It's almost as if you're predicting that is gonna happen. But you know their effort here was just to make sure you knew that they are ready on DH willing and able and what to watch this and hope for the best this weekend. Yeah, and it's obviously not a long term solution. Having a curfew and putting up built bridges is restricting everyone from the downtown area. But the solution you don't belong there for that moment. I mean, the solution is years long. That's the problem. Exactly. And I think that's what that's the frustrating part about where we are. Is that Communities that have been dis invested in him, then situations that have brought us to this point in time. You know, you look and say Okay, how do you solve this overnight? You can't. I know a lot of people, including the downtown alderman. And many of the business owners and people who live in that area were saying that you know, they wanted to see some sort of consequence for looting. I think the last I saw the number was up to 42 people. Who had been charged with felony with fellas. But when I understand they aren't charging people with misdemeanors, and I haven't seen any any charges of misdemeanors for any of the looting A retail theft yet if you weren't arrested by police at this point, I don't know how they would have gotten you. They did arrest of more than 100 people. I think there's about 100 Pio and I thought of that 142 got felony arrests. Felony charges. Excuse me. I don't know if she refused to prosecute the others or if they just four misdemeanors. I don't know that you're saying is that they need video proof for in order to press the charges, and that's one of the reasons why the police superintendent came out there. Had that news conference and said police you go to Chicago police dot org's see if you identify any of these folks, and we will then helped build the case for the state's attorney's office of that they will press charges and you know we were. We were talking about that today as well with the spokesman for the Police department because To make prove it's not just good enough to have a photo of someone on State Street.

Thie shooting. Of police officer shot back is the way the police have explained it to us at a 20 year old man who shot at them on that they use that in a false narrative about that, to sort of press. The go button is the way, Alderman Riley said. To start this event, but that at its core, there was a core group of folks who are very organized and very coordinated and lead sort of this attempt. To go out there and they're saying is that if this was happening on social media, and it was all unfolding Why weren't police in front of that? Why were they sort of monitoring it as well? And if they knew about it? Why weren't we more prepared to deal with it? It's a kind of policing strategies that although O'Reilly was asking for He said.

"I think you'd you'd agree with me now. Mayor Lightfoot had a real moment of truth yesterday. Maybe maybe it could even be called that Come to Jesus moment. Mayor Lightfoot had to leave from her home yesterday. Because the protesters Were coming to her home. Now you remember what happened in Washington? Remember what happened in Oakland in Washington, They finally put an end to the chop zone when the protesters got to the mayor's mansion. And in Oakland, they finally voted not to defund the police when the protesters got to the mayor's house and sprayed graffiti all over it, and the mayor realized Oh, my God, they know where I am, If I don't do what they say. They will attack me and I need the police. So I'm wondering if there was a Cy said a come to Jesus moment for the mayor of Chicago. Thea other story that caught my attention. And I think you probably have seen it as well involves Children. And these were kids in Portland, who were marching with their parents. Now, I think it's a good idea for parents to teach kids about the First Amendment and the rights that they have in the first Amendment right to free speech, the right to stand up and tell your government you disagree with them. And it is a right you have a long to do it peacefully. But yesterday in Portland, the video that went viral Really explains who these people are. Now we're taught at a very young age. That Children are our born pure. They're blank slate. Children come into this world and they don't hate anything. They? They just want to be loved. They want to be fed. They want to be able to grow up. Children don't hate Hate is not a natural thing. So you have to teach you to. That's what we've been told. Racism has to be taught. You don't wake up and you're not born racist. You have to be taught to be a racist. You have to be taught to hate yesterday. This viral video showing kids probably as young as three years old, marching with Moms and maybe Dad's Who knows? They were chanting. Chanting something that also matched the placards. They were carrying the crudely scribbled placards they were carrying that said after the police And someone decided. Well, wouldn't it be great to take a video of the kids chanting and and marching and so they did all right, people. Power to the people. You're teaching hate to Children. Isn't that a wonderful thing? I've never seen anything like it. That to me is child abuse. That to me is Worth a call Tio CPS. If somebody knew who these kids parents were, it's one of the more disgusting displays your teaching Children to hate the people who they will ultimately need to call. When someone is breaking into their home. When they need help. I just don't even know what to say. And call me a snowflake for getting mad at that. But that to me is child abuse. Alright, I'm stepping aside. You want to join the conversation? Am I right? Am I wrong? Go ahead, stipulates.

"Chicago. First of all and propose over announcement today stop trying to kill off the affordable care act. There's so much wrong with that statement. First of all, she accuses the president of a political move. Then she makes a political statement about Obamacare. That's what she did. You know, just a A political statement. Was it? I mean, is that what the president made if the president's statement was a political statement than his charges would have no merit, would they It would be an empty It would be an empty accusation. There'll be nothing behind it, but there were 87 more people shot over the weekend. 17 more killed over the weekend. It wasn't an empty her statement may have been an empty put, but his wasn't You know now Mayor Lightfoot talks about how this was just a perfect storm. That's exactly what she called it. You know, the perfect storm put the city on pace to record more murders than any year since 2016. She said. You know the virus force people to stay home for nearly three months brought the court system to near halt created a perfect storm, which means the worst possible circumstances, the underlying causes of violence. That's poverty, lack of hope, despair and not enough access to things that we know build healthy, strong families and communities. Those challenges remain and are being kind of compressed and There's way too many guns. Is Mayor Lightfoot full of it. Yes, there are poverty issues. But they didn't just appear in the past. You know, few few weeks or a few years for that matter, and economy was actually doing pretty good before the Corona virus. So it can't have been this long, You know, standing poverty issue is their longstanding poverty, of course. But while of a sudden the uptick maybe it's because you know she's not prosecuting people. Because they're defunding the police. You think maybe that might have something to do with the president tweeted by the way after the weekend's shooting, that the feds are really ready, willing and able to help Do you think that that the governor and the mayor of Chicago will take him up on that? Should they I think they should Sandy in west Roxbury. Welcome to W. B. C. How are you? Very well. Thank you. How are you? I'm fine. So what do you think?

Okay, Well, I totally agree with you. I just introduce a note of levity, which I really shouldn't. But if you remember the song from West Side story D of crappy as Yeah. I mean, that's the whole thing, you know. That That's it right there in the not tell. I mean, they just know that the police aren't going to do anything even there because they were afraid of being sued or because they're not being there being defunded or they're being deactivated and they can get away with it. And there is no moral compass. I mean, they see an opportunity to write and they take it. Yeah, And I think it's I think it's sad, but it's fixable. As long as it's recognized as a problem and people pitched in together, you know, governor knocked over commissioner Grass had was part of a press conference this morning and one of the reasons why Boston is doing better, even though we just had a spate of shootings were nowhere near the category of Chicago or New York. Or Atlanta for that matter on DH, he says. One of the differences is the fact that the community got together and we're helping the police with shootings were solved two of the five or solved immediately because the community was there to help the police people took personal responsibility and jumped on board to help the police radio about police it contained even think about it. Yeah, it isn't saying to even think about it, and it's scary unless you want to commit crimes, and then it's wonderful to think about that. It's a Mardi Gras, then it's you know, then it's all no holds barred. You know, Knock yourself out, because that's the message that they're sending. I mean, in Seattle, Do you remember Sandy? They basically told the police still believe the mayor. Told the police to re trolls. Didn't you miss the whole thing? Love love that poor man who lost his 19 year old son and he's couldn't even get to him. Macy's in Chancery went there. Seven shootings. I think two deaths and seven shootings or other more now and Chazz or chop, but I hope the people of Seattle paid attention and vote out there.
