ooh, is this the part where they put a gun to the protagonist’s head and say “now youse can’t leave” because the mafia is forever?
i love gangster movies!
pew! pew! “you dirty rat!”
As I've said, this is proof that we could never actually have "universal basic income" in the US. It wouldn't be permitted to be truly "universal". We are watching *progressives* try to exclude people from their *own much vaunted social safety net* if they won't vaccinate. It's remarkable to watch and has a few honest old-school progressives wondering what the heck happened to everybody.
Remember, last year during the covid free money giveaway, the states claimed it would be illegal for them NOT to pay pensions, and therefore they needed a bailout.
“When I am weaker than you, I ask you for freedom because that is according to your principles; when I am stronger than you, I take away your freedom because that is according to my principles.”
― Frank Herbert
The mask is coming off of government, and it is every bit the slimy evil monster that libertarians said it was.
This is pathetically, obviously illegal and as empty a threat as Brandon's weird, whispered bullying speech two months ago.
This isn't how retirement benefits work. They are not conditional on good behavior. They are owed money.
Just like you can't withhold medical care from insured people because you don't like their life choices.
Well they're not all doing this because they're in the pay of big pharma, are they? It's because they really in believe in something. What? That vaccines will save their lives and unvaccinated will imperil them? Is that it? They really believe that?
Then we need a loud and very simplistic campaign we can all promote that sets them straight.
Maybe something like:
Vaccine: 99% live. (99.96 Pfizer's figures)
No Vaccine: 99% live. (99.86 Pfizer's figures)
Vaccines: still get the virus.
No Vaccines: still get the virus.
Vaccinated: spread the virus while ill.
Unvaccinated: spread the virus while ill.
Vaccinated: Overwhelming never see before numbers of vaccine side and fatal effects.
Vaccinated immunity: Fades within weeks. Israelis now pumping shot number four into them.
Natural immunity: Lasts and lasts, is more complete, no shots.
Vaccine: Does not help immune system, just kick starts it.
Vit D, A, C, zinc, exercise, sunlight, wind friends, happiness: help, strengthen the immune system.
Lockdowns, masks, distancing, fear, doubt, powerlessness: weaken the immune system.
Natural life and fighting, independent, empowered attitude: strengthens immune system.
Viral 'attack' of this nature: Seen many times before in history inc. recent history.
Shutdown, abhor others, hide, vaccinate everyone, police etc.: never seen before.
USA States with strong lockdowns, masks, distancing, etc. etc. disease followed path 'A'
USA State with none of the above: disease followed the same path 'A'
MSM and Politicians change story unpredictably, have no science, promote censorship and gags.
Serious scientists of long standing universally promote same story from beginning 'target response'.
This way is the WRONG way.
The natural way is the RIGHT WAY.
I think we need something along those lines cobbled together by those who are experts in this sort of thing, copy writers? propagandists? advertising people?
I live in Chicago. I fully support all PD walking off the job for this and many other reasons. How much abuse should someone take?
Just don't call it coercion.. they're free to choose submission or starvation, very scientific!
They are starting to lose--Chicago, Southwest Airlines, huge protests against schoolchildren mandates in Cali, Australia loosening restrictions, Florida (that Sahara of the Bozart backwards in every which way including vaccine rates) now has the third lowest per capita case rates--the grip on the skyscraper ledge is coming undone one finger at a time and then there is going to be quite a fall. Perhaps a 'fatal' fall.
I do not think this is going to end well.
Here in AotearoaNZ, individuals unwilling to comply with vaccine mandates are being encouraged not to resign but to hold out till their employers to terminate their employment so that they are able to retain access to some benefits like their retirement benefits and ability to apply for unemployment benefits without the lengthy stand downs that are associated with voluntarily leaving a job . It also requires the employer to document the reason for dismissal which could open the way for a class action legal challenge.
Today its Chicago. Tomorrow Atlanta. The next day YOUR city. Decide today what it is you are willing to do to save your freedom. The hammer will come down when you are getting groceries, picking up the kids or about to go to bed. Some time when you are not thinking about your freedoms but just living them.
I hope when all hell has broken loose in Chicago bc most of the PD has left, that the criminals make a beeline right to the mayors home (and I am not capitalizing it the "M"on purpose) and pillage all she has so she can see what she has wrought. And that goes for all that are causing this. Let them reap what they sow.
This is the time for all the other CPD to walk off the job and show what will not comply means
It's surreal. In communist Canada, and it's looking grim. I used to tell students, " You are in the driver's seat." Locus of control (internal vs external) was an indicator of success. But now, I am not in the driver's seat, and nor is my family. We worked hard. University, college, student loans, investment properties (which my hubby laboured over). I also had a failed business. We're not looking for sympathy. But now, we are up against losing both of our jobs. My beautiful, smart, good-hearted daughter (math major, with four years bachelor degree), might not be able to go through with her placement, for her Bachelor of Education next semester, due to her non-vaxxed status. I can live with what they do to me, but this breaks my heart.
The dumbest humans on the planet are in the swamps of Blue Cities.
She is such a master persuader that she has to resort to thug tactics to get compliance.
Power doesn't corrupt. Power reveals.
Umm, Chicago appears to be asking for an assertive response by affected officers. I wonder if their union is in bed with its members or the Lightfoot administration?? Brandon and his allies may become known, historically, as the trigger for a resurgence of unionism in this country.
How many will sign onto the force going forward if they know Chicago will hold them hostage in this way?
Keep voting for Democrats if you want your city, state or country destroyed.
Very few things are more deadly or expensive than Dems delusional and regressive policies; the growing list of Dems shitholes is a living testimony of that fact.
I'd like to see how many of these cops voted for Democrats. Then I will tell you if I care. That liberalism would lead here has been obvious to me for over 40 years. Many people are getting what they voted for.
fascists will fascist!
Wow, they are just begging for a cat fight!
Is it "Chicago" or Lightfoot, who gave a pass to teachers?
They will just say anything.
Not only immoral but HAS to be a failure in court.
The targeting of the "unvaccinated" is tragic. If someone like Elon Musk does not want to be vaccinated, no one can force it on him. The crazies among us are getting rid of many capable and talented people whose contributions are critical to the functioning of our economy and society. Their first target was the oil market which drove WTI crude prices from $35 a year ago to $82 today. I fear we are on track for a total breakdown in social order before next midterm election.
Good God...just let them go in peace.
Take the King’s shilling, do the King’s bidding.
I don't have much sympathy for the State's praetorians when, after enforcing the plethora of immoral victimless "crimes" the rulers decreed, they find themselves on the receiving end of what they've been dishing out.
The State IS a mafia. Nothing more than a gang of thieves writ large, as Rothbard said. And as we all know, there is no honor among thieves.
In some way, I'm glad this is all happening. It reveals the real fascists among us. When the tide turns, we will be good for 20 years...
I hope Beetlejuice's security detail are the first to walk off the job.
I am not for the mandate, I think they would lose in court.
But IF they won in court it could (inadvertently) be the "straw" that ends the corrupt pension system in IL. The politicians "say" the constitution protects pensions, if that is not the case ala mandate - then ALL pensions would be fair game.
PS - I moved out of IL 6 yrs ago, in part to the taxes and corruption in government. Winters were horrible as well.
Your money or your life!
Who in hell has the right to do this? WTF? Good luck ever getting people to sign up to become officers...but maybe this is the plan. Right?
So that's it. Where the Hell does the Illinois government think that they are granted this option ? Just like where the Hell does the wack-job Governor of NY State believe that she has the option to fire doctors and nurses and deny them unemployment. There are truly INSANE people elected, or appointed to, high offices in our Government. The sad truth is that these officials believe the lies and mistruths that are pushed by Big Pharma, Big Government and more. The sad facts are that these so called 'vaccines'... which aren't actually vaccines, as they're patented as 'gene therapies'... do not work and are harming the health of millions. But our CDC, FDA & NIH... agencies that are supposed to protect us from ill advised medicines... are now 'captured agencies'. So they distort the truth to help the narrative of Big Pharma. They, Joe Brandon, and many others are a total disgrace.
This behavior has happened before.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Cannot believe this would ever hold up in court. I heard a lawyer who was giving advice for suits…He said to ask where in their original work contract it says that they would have to take any mandatory emergency use authorization vaccination.
I hope Lori Lightfoot tries, then after those honorable police officers win their law suit, their benefits will be even higher!! ;-)
As Forest Gump once said: "Stupid is as stupid does"
I think that they are going to force a lot of people to take illegal actions to preserve their country
Leftists want to defund the police? You don't say...
The biggest lawsuit in the history of lawsuits....maybe ever.
The Retirement is sacrosanct, even O.J. got to keep his. *popcorn*
Again, Covid plays into the hands of the Diktats. The state is so broke they would use any excuse to withhold public pensions.
Somebody should be arrested?
This is is informed consent?
Do you want them to form their own gang?
Because this is how you get them to form their own gang.
Actually the mafia learned from the many governments in Italy how to oppress people (and get money)
The government made all the advances in oppression, the mafia is just a wannabe.
"Progressives are always on the cutting edge of oppression" (in the name of the people)
Retirement benefits are part of the employment package, earned as you go along… so they are going to retroactively remove a benefit that has already been earned? Where are the lawyers?

How dare they leave their jobs voluntarily after the city decided to defund them and force policies on them they don't agree with!
Incase anyone still thought this was about public health, this is proof positive that it's about control down to the last drop
Very interesting, I daresay.
This cannot go on for much longer, as yesterday's post about Italy suggests.
Thus, let’s briefly think about what might happen next.
I think that once one gov’t falls (here’s looking at you, Mario Draghi), it appears rather unlikely that the French won’t join in. Austria just announced—despite no basis in law (yet)—that the ‘Green Pass’ will apply from 1 November 2021 onwards. Honestly, Latvia just announced another hard ‘lockdown’, with some gov’t ministers calling for ‘martial law’ (I’m not making this up, check out the Latvian media report here).
I think it’s not so much going to be a ‘Dark Winter’. Don’t get me wrong, we’ll see significantly elevated mortality events (excess deaths are up in the U.K. and Germany as well as in a number of other European countries for 1-2 months now), but my point is: at some point, reality will trump ‘reality’ as understood by the globalist sympathisers masquerading as national gov’ts.
And then the question turns into: will the fallout look like March or October 1848?
(See my more elaborate take on this here: https://fackel.substack.com/p/forget-about-dark-winter-its-actually, if you're interested.)
