the sign that things are going really, really bad is when there is no quiet part anymore and it all becomes overt.
this means they think you are too craven and powerless to oppose them.
lori would like you to know that your ability to live a free life as you wish is not a right, it's a privilege and she will be the only and unappealable judge of how you are allowed to exercise it.
clearly, this trend is being pushed all over the world in a sudden bum rush to grab control.
if you are stupid enough to think you'll ever get your rights back if you submit to this, then you probably never deserved or even knew how to use them anyway.
you get to keep the rights that you will fight for and not one iota more.
What it was always about from the start, and it all started long ago. If your freedom can be taken away for the sniffles, you never had any to begin with.
Perfectly put. It's totally a bum rush, globally. They're all trying to out-dictator each other and now you're going to see Australia-level politics in blue states.
America would be gone by now if it weren't for gun laws.
I would say elections are going to change something, but I doubt it. People are dumb AF.
I live in Chicago and refuse to be vexxed. I am also a patent and federal trial lawyer. Once I finish enjoying my Christmas and New Year celebrations, I will begin to fight back. I live in a neighborhood that has great restaurants, and I have no intention of forfeiting my access to them because I made personal health decisions our Lemur-in-Chief disagrees with.
The same thing is true here in Canada, Montreal specifically. "Baby Doc" Justin Trudeau, the head authoritarian of Canada just recently said that "Yes, what we are doing goes against Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms" but that it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if the majority is discriminating against the minority (the unvaxxed), effectively making the unvaxxed second class citizens. Trudeau and his government will not be stopped. The man knows that he is a criminal and flaunts it.
It's weird how it's the bossy girls - Jacinda, Lori, Nicola Sturgeon - who are the most open about the sheer coercion. The men - Fauci, Biden, Macron - at least dress up their will-to-power with a few words of fake concern. It's like a cross between fascism and 'Heathers'.
It's strange (or maybe not) that the wannabe rulers are all spewing variants of this right now... it's filthy abusive language that in any other context would be considered hate speech or worse. After going through the various known and tested marketing strategies: fear, shame, hope, appeals to altruism... now they are getting into heavy threats: coercion, loss of your job & income, travel & entertainment restrictions... and finally, this unspecified awfulness that will be visited on the unjabbed.
It’s no wonder 113,776 people left the state of Illinois in 2021, the 8th year running of population decline. Lightfoot is destroying a once beautiful, safe, great city. Worst mayor is in history. I’ve talked to small business owners in the City who say they will not comply with this new mandate which is clearly not based on science/public health.
“you get to keep the rights that you will fight for and not one iota more.
So many hills worth dying on.
No prisons worth living in.
I'm well and truly in general agreement with your take on things El Gato, but I suspect many of the resistant -- and our "silent allies" among the go-along-to-get-along jabbed -- haven't yet realized a key point :
While we've been busy keeping our collective heads above the steadily rising tide, the Dark Lords (and Ladies) atop the pyramid (which a few of us have been pointing out for decades, with little success) have also developed the means to quash the uprisings they're clearly aware will accompany the socio-political shift.
No one but the "lunatic fringe" has been willing to acknowledge the long-standing process, despite abundant evidence. Until now. Two years along this dystopian downslope, it's clear that a significant portion of humanity will NEVER be able to wrap their heads around the idea.
History VERY clearly demonstrates conspiracy is their stock and trade. Always has been, always will be. The double-edged technologies supposedly undermining their efforts were developed by their DARPA minions. The scale, volume and pervasive nature of the contemporary systems of coercion their middle managers (politicians, bureaucrats, technocrats, et al.) wield are testament to the lessons they've clearly learned over the last couple centuries of occasional unrest and outright resistance.
As much as my heart agrees with every screed about their clumsy, ham-fisted efforts as we accelerate face first down the slippery slope, my head is still full of forty years of abundant evidence to the contrary. We misinterpret their seeming lack of subtlety and inability to offer a coherent message at our own peril.
The idea that there aren't well-considered contingencies aplenty waiting just around the corner flies in the face of the very premise of conspiracy, which inherently requires detailed planning. History is full of examples, nearly always available -- if only in hindsight.
The seeming illogic of mandates denuding organizations of necessary talent and resources, from healthcare to the military, make much more sense when viewed through the lens of eliminating dissenting voices from these largely hierarchical structures.
As a direct result, it's not unreasonable to expect those remaining will be much more likely to "follow orders" Eichmann-style, when the grief they're asked to visit on their fellow humans escalates yet again. Pitchforks and torches -- and the power of numbers -- are a romantic ideal. They will no longer suffice in the era of para-militarized police, pervasive monitoring, directed energy weapons and other such dystopian tools of the trade.
All that said, I realize this less-than-optimistic view will not sit well with individuals who prefer hope to despair. Honestly, there's still a small downstairs room in my soul clinging fiercely to a tattered idea : that the weight of truth and a massive uprising will somehow tip the balance.
Unfortunately, the same room is packed floor to ceiling with overstuffed filing cabinets containing forty years worth of reading, research and historical inquiry leading in a less satisfactory direction.
So I’m assuming Chicago wants to begin some version of the jab pass as well? I keep wondering if these floundering cities with skyrocketing murder rates are just initiating these passes as an excuse for imminent collapse into a third world state. Then when they bankrupt themselves they can blame it all on the “emergency” and ask big daddy Fed for more money.
DO NOT COMPLY! Sometimes it really is that simple!
Fortunately for me, doing the things I love doesn't require anyone's permission.
I'm just sorry that having more dinner parties, basement Crossfit, and Netflix with the neighbors is going to hurt business owners. If they want to arrange something under the table, I think that's where this is headed. No taxpayer dollars for tyrants.
Now do voter ID.
That sounds like a declaration of war.
If war begins, it won't be her side that gets to say when it's over.
Chicago is another city I hope to never see again. The government there is insane.
She refuses to enforce murder laws in black regions - what makes you think she will enforce passport laws in these areas? seems this is a move to win votes with smug white folks
Please everyone...flood social media with this clip of the CDC Director admitting to Blitzer in early August...almost five months ago...that the jabs don't stop infection or transmission of the virus and that the fully vaxxed and unvaxxed have similar viral loads.
While I allow for ignorance, incompetence, and useless virtue signaling...this move is clearly not about a virus or health. It gives the low information vaxxed a false sense of protection and discriminates against the unvaxxed for no public health reason.
I don't believe most unvaxxed will get the jab, so they can go to dinner or a show. This will hurt businesses within the city limits. It should be challenged.
And it will fail to stop transmission.
The Twitter clip:
The Fakebook clip:
Suggest that anyone in Chicago who values their freedom tell Mayor Lori: kiss my @ss.
Hi Lori, answer me this, why would I freely give you something that you clearly have no respect or regard?
My grocery chain refuses to enforce. My hardware/farmstore doesn't enforce even their employees. I left paid entertainment years ago. Reading is better, along with walking my dogs, rising my rescue pony, gardening. There's little they can take from me. I think taking SS would provoke immediate class action lawsuits.
They gave a bigger than expected boost to SS. Enough to pay for my increased heating oil bill. Guess they think I won't notice the electric, propane, gas, food, etc.
I have come to the undeniable conclusion that far too many Americans, tens of millions of Americans, do not deserve the freedoms and liberties guaranteed by our Constitution, and are unworthy of the copious amounts of blood shed by our forebears as they preserved, protected, and defended the freedoms and liberties guaranteed by our Constitution.
Lori Lightfoot and EVERYONE who holds that or similar views are not my countrymen. I'll quote Samuel Adams again, far more eloquent than I could ever hope to be:
"The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”
Or... it means they're getting desperate and emotional and flailing.
And therefore making mistakes. Saying the quiet part out loud is a mistake.
When this gets to court, the Mayor saying "in fact is it inconvenient by design" makes it a lot harder for the city to argue that this is a good-faith public health measure.
How is she *not* the kind of domestic enemy the US Constitution has empowered us with the necessary tools to stop??
I hope she tells all those gangbangers to make sure they're vaxxed before they go shoot each other. We wouldn't want them to catch the sniffles before doing what they love.
There is a word that describes politicos like her: FASCIST
This is what it has come to: Openly promoting fascism. The silence of many is a testament to the power of the propaganda they have been guzzling.
DWF = Down With Fascism!
WWNC = We Will Not Comply!
She also orders mask mandates she doesn’t follow, business closures unless she wants a haircut, defund the police garbage unless it’s her a$$ on the line…. This “leader” is a hypocrite joke, she’s a true Libturd.
what an ignorant idiot she is. how the hell did she become a mayor?, she is a derelict. civil disobedience all the way.
Very true. People stupid enough to submit to these mental midget tyrants deserve to lose their freedom. For me, I would rather die a free man than live under tyranny. I go on living my life with the same attitude I always have: Whenever the corrupt government tells me I "must" do something that is clearly unconstitutional, I do the exact opposite. They can shove that mRNA poison up their ass.
"Fight for" means different things to different people. A lot of people "fought" to have Newsom ousted after the biggest destructive powergrab in American history. (Sorry New York, but you are a pipsqueak half our size.) He "won" retaining his seat by a 2:1 margin in a rigged mail-in election....mail-in owing to coof fears. By the time the slow-to-stir population will have had enough of this sort of pre-military communism, state sclerosis will be even more advanced. The only cure for this is a Sweet Meteor Of Death. Merry Blackpilled Christmas friends.
Her time is coming. This kind of hysterical response is the last desperate gasp of somebody who has lost the argument because they have no coherent rationale for their position. This will not end well for her. She's just too drunk on power and stupidity to realize it yet.
Haha! THIS from a mayor who has ZERO control over the criminals in her city? Does she think they are going to do this? And if they do not comply - well the ordinary citizen has every right to non-compliance too!
It looks to me like citizenship is being redefined as being in compliance with current mandates, whatever they may be, and revokable whenever one fails to keep current with a jab schedule. Such that being unjabbed puts one in the category of being an "illegal", with no basic rights.
I don't know what the way out is. I cannot believe courts have allowed this, but they continue to. There's no way a GOP or similar person is going to win an election in Chicago or Philly or NY. So many people are so bought into the narrative that they happily and gleefully comply. So either it's just remove yourself from the cities and hope it stops there - or hope the virus fades enough that the rules stay in place but nobody cares anymore.
Funny enough, as brazen as these fascists are, they aren’t imposing them on the welfare & assistance recipients. How ya think that would go over?
Here’s a preview for ET impersonator Lori. Just happened in South Philly. Judging by her photo I can see why they left her behind too.
What's really frightening is that so many politicians throughout the world are acting like they'll never have to face a free and fair election again.
Let's go Lori!
You can only use the brain cells you got. If you only have 2...
wow, there is this, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSx4bj-FKb0
Not too many Nathan Hale’s around these days. Call out the instigator because there’s something in the air.
Lori Lightfoot is an what, oh I could of think of a dew adjectives. Grew up in Chicago. My hometown. A strong city full of midwesterners, kind, good people. A real melting plot. Grandma fro Sicily, another grandparent from Kilteely Ireland. Friends’ families came over from Poland Germany, Italy, Ireland. Later on we wondered the city and worked in the city mixing and meeting more long time Chicagoans and minorities.
What the HELL happened? It is people like Lori Lightfoot and her attorney general who are tearing our hometown to shreds. Destroying any semblance of safety or life as we knew it. Downton destroyed when black life matters tore up Michigan Ave ie and now continue to vandalise and steal from big name stores. Causing same stores to shut down for good. People are leaving Chicago in droves.
Well Lori, who exactly is going to pay your bills when your tax base diasappears. Maybe the drug dealers and thugs who are using people on the expressway as shooting targets. Perhaps you have a plan Lori, but I doubt it. Once you are finished destroying my hometown, you will simply walk away, like nothing happened.
To say I dislike people like you, who take no responsibility for ruining what once was a vibrant city is putting it mildly. You Lori Lightfoot are a disappointment. The best anyone could hope for is you step down before you cause anymore harm.
Lori light foot has bigger problems than covid to worry about in the murder capitol of the country. But she only gets backhanders for one of them. I think you know which one😂😂
I am in Chicago, and what truly astounds me is how many people think this is a GOOD thing. I've shown them data that shows NY's vaccine passport did nothing. I point out that an infected, vaccinated person can dine out but a healthy person can't. They don't care. It isn't about logic or health, but obedience and the feeling of triumph over a perceived enemy.

I wonder what kinds of fuckery they are up to (in plain sight!- like the omicron variant, it’s been here for a while, we just weren’t looking for it) while we all focus on this perverse, evil assault on our liberty. Florida looks better every day.
Thank you Lori.... You're personal Nuremberg prosecutor really won't have to waste too much time on you. Oh, yes, since people like you seem absolutely oblivious... violations carry death penalty.
Drag them into the street
Her grammar/proofreading skills are great, too.
I wrote about this crazy decision yesterday
Basically, the 'emergency' ends when she says it does and 'fully vaccinated' can change on a whim. If you support this, you're crazy.
Off topic, but anecdotally I feel like I’m seeing more stories lately of vaccine injured people, as well as articles about fully vaccinated and boosted people getting Covid. Anyone else feel like this?
Well I guess this kitty ain't going to Chicago any time soon.
Beetle Juice's uglier sister must be hanged by her lighter foot, head first in a latrine, and injected with her owners' poisons until the clots rip her arse apart in a massive explosion.
