Pritzker Forgot What He Said On A Federal Wire Tap ?

During his May 29, 2020 press conference, the Governor said, twice, that the President is a racist. Perhaps he just forgot what he said on a Federal tape recording while talking to Former Gov and now Felon Blagojevich.

Pritzker apologizes for comments on race


• Feb 6, 2018

CHICAGO — Democratic Illinois governor candidate J.B. Pritzker is apologizing for racially insensitive comments captured on a FBI wiretap between him and then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, including saying a popular lawmaker was the “least offensive” African American to appoint to a Senate seat.

The Chicago Tribune late Monday published the previously unreleased recording from a decade-old investigation of Blagojevich, a Democrat now imprisoned for convictions that included trying to trade an appointment to Barack Obama’s vacated U.S. Senate seat for campaign cash.

Pritzker, a billionaire businessman who’s considered the front runner in the March 20 primary, apologized on Tuesday during a news conference at a southern-style cafeteria on Chicago’s West Side where he was joined by African-American supporters.

“I regret the conversations in many ways, the words that I used, and the things that I didn’t say on that call that I would have preferred to have said… I can do better and I have,” Pritzker said. “I clearly made a mistake that day and I clearly wasn’t my best self.”

On the recording, Pritzker suggests Blagojevich appoint Secretary of State Jesse White rather than other African- Americans, including Jesse Jackson Jr. or Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. He says doing so “covers you on the African-American thing.”

“Of all the African-Americans that I can think that are sort of like qualified … and people will say ‘Oh – that’s, you know that’s, that’s a pretty good pick,’ the one that’s least offensive and maybe gets you the most because it gets you that secretary of state appointment is Jesse White.”

Pritzker also says the secretary of state position is “the key spot … that controls jobs, etc.” and that by appointing White to the Senate, Blagojevich wouldn’t have to name an African-American to the state post.

Later in the call, Pritzker is heard laughing as Blagojevich jokes about appointing Obama’s former minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose comments dogged Obama’s 2008 campaign. Among other things, Wright said the U.S. brought on the Sept. 11 attacks by committing terrorism against others and that people should sing “God Damn America” rather than “God Bless America.”

On the call, Blagojevich mimics Wright, imagining him saying “God Damn America” on the floor of the Senate.

“That’s funny,” Pritzker says.

Pritzker just called Trump a racist on Fox news today. He said he doesn’t know how much more “blunt” he can be about that. Lori Lightfoot just told Trump “F U” . These are your leaders in Illinois folks. I don’t care if you do or do not like someone. No human being should ever tell someone to “F U” especially on public television. And no one should ever call anyone a racist without any proof, and I can assure you he has no proof. And btw since they are doing name calling, let’s make it a fair fight. Let me be “blunt” if I will. Pritzker you are a crook! Pritzker you are a fraud! Pritzker you are Tyrant! To be more blunt, Pritzker you are an idiot! The obvious disdain for our president shows through with these idiots in office. No wonder no one believes them when they give us their “COVID” statistics.

Are We Seeing the Results of the Left Inviting Antifa to Illinois With Their Philosophy to Stop Funding Police Departments and the US Military and Ignore the Rule of Law ?

The left and the media, which are pretty much one group, are working to undermine the American system because they believe in elections only when their candidate wins and because they believe that the elites have not only the right, but the moral obligation to rule over the rest of us.


There  is a real threat to our freedom, that  real threat is the Left in America, which has embraced fascism. We are now seeing this played out across the country.

Most of the left either overtly or tacitly approves of the use of violence by Antifa to silence voices it doesn’t like.  Has the conduct of our currently elected officials invited in Antifa and the subsequent terrorist and criminal conduct by the participants.

The Left is constantly demanding that instead of revising laws they don’t like through the democratic process, those laws should just be ignored.

An electorate in darkness can’t vote intelligently.  Hence, if Americans don’t know the truth, they are at risk of voting against what’s best for them.  Antifa undermines our system by denying people the truth.

Rejecting the constitutional process for creating laws is a rejection of democracy, and it serves to undermine the power of voters.

Other groups are working hard to destroy democracy in America.  They too aren’t insidious foreign powers, but rather Americans who embrace fascism and totalitarianism.

The left and the media, which are pretty much one group, are working to undermine the American system because they believe in elections only when their candidate wins and because they believe that the elites have not only the right, but the moral obligation to rule over the rest of us.

Tell your friends there is a real threat to our freedom, but it’s not from Russia.  Rather, the real threat is the left in America, which has embraced fascism.

A prime goal of far-left Antifa is to rid America of “whiteness” as a race, according to a handbook written by a historian who helped organize the anarchist “Occupy Wall Street” movement in 2011.

Anti-capitalist author Mark Bray rejects “exterminating” whites. Instead, he proposes to remove it as a race and thus terminate its high standing while creating a “classless society” that would naturally do away with crime.

“This does not mean exterminating people who are currently categorized as white, but abolishing the classificatory scheme that renders them so,” he writes in the 2017 “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook.”

Mr. Bray has an extensive list of targets to abolish that include “ableism, heteronormativity, patriarchy, nationalism, transphobia, class rule….”

Attorney General William Barr on Saturday identified Antifa street warriors as the main culprits in promoting the nationwide burning, looting and general destruction of American cities. President Trump says he plans to designated Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization, opening them up to immediate arrest on terrorism charges.

After Mr. Trump labeled Antifa a terror group, the Washington Post gave Mr. Bray op-ed space to defend the violent group.

Antifa has a broad definition of “fascists,” giving the title to prominent conservative voices such as Anne Coulter, who it has a right, it says, to shut down. Ms. Coulter canceled a speaking engagement at Berkeley in 2017 after receiving death threats.

Antifa has become notorious in this country for its hooded and masked street bullies shouting down conservative speakers. They have also been filmed as mobs physically attacking conservative activists and destroying personal property.

In 2018, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison posted a photo of himself online holding and endorsing the “Anti-Fascist Handbook.” His son said he is a proud Antifa backer.

A Los Angeles Times story later said, “Violence over this weekend by left-wing ‘antifa’ activists in Berkeley has opened another chapter in the debate at the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement over UC Berkeley’s plan to host several conservative firebrands next month.”

The heart of Antifa’s battle is to rid America of “whiteness.”

Mr. Bray quotes a like-minded author as saying, “The preeminent position of whiteness atop the racial hierarchy that birthed it makes it an identity of a very different sort from blackness, for example, which was the direct result of the destruction of the identities of kidnapped Africans who were placed on the bottom of the hierarchy.”

Mr. Bray’s anti-white strategy: “My Jewish and Irish ancestors were not considered ‘white’ when they first arrived in this country in the early twentieth century, but over time they were gradually welcomed into what Joel Olson terms ‘white democracy.’ The meaning and boundaries of such social constructs shift over time, but we have the power to strike back at the racial hierarchy that underpins the very essence of whiteness. This does not mean adopting a conservative ‘color-blind’ outlook, but rather targeting sources of white privilege and struggling in solidarity with the disinherited of the world.”

The book adds: “The only long-term solution to the fascist menace is to undermine its pillars of strength in society grounded not only in white supremacy but also in ableism, heteronormativity, patriarchy, nationalism, transphobia, class rule, and many others. This long-term goal points to the tensions that exist in defining anti-fascism, because at a certain point destroying fascism is really about promoting a revolutionary socialist alternative….”

Mr. Bray says Antifa also wants America to stop funding police departments,  ICE,  and the US Military.

“By not devoting resources to prisons, police, and the military, such a post-capitalist society would be able to put far more into supporting education, the arts, and collective expression and inquiry,” he writes. “While the creation of a classless society would eliminate the majority of crime stemming from capitalist antagonisms, Antifa argue that methods of restorative justice should replace police and prisons in addressing conflicts that persist.”

On free speech, he quotes an Antifa loyalist:

“As Joe from the Raleigh-Durham [General Defense Committee] argued, ‘the idea that freedom of speech is the most important thing that we can protect can only be held by someone who thinks that life is analogous to a debate hall. In my opinion ‘no platforming’ fascists often infringes upon their speech, but this infringement is justified for its role in the political struggle against fascism.”

Antifa is one of many discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government.

We are seeing in Illinois, the outcomes of politicians such as Mayor Lightfoot and Governor Priztker subscribing to such principals, using these relationships to the political model architects to rise to power.    The Illinois voters need to recognize this denigration of our political process and remove these players from power in subsequent elections.

Mayor Lightfoot’s Misplaced Priorities

Mayor Lori Lightfoot has 400 Chicago Police Officers & 350 traffic aides guarding the lakefront & beaches from healthy joggers, bikers, boaters, & dog walkers while riots & looting is taking place on Michigan Avenue

You can be arrested for jogging here but not for breaking a window of Macy’s & setting it in fire.

Her priorities & allocation of resources is completely wrong. In addition she has spend millions on signs, snow fence, towing cars near churches, photo opts, etc while ignoring protecting residents & businesses. She needs to focus on reopening safely to get the city up and running rather then having press conferences, doing stunts & playing games.

Mayor Lightfoot lit the wick for the rioters with these type of statements.

“I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words: It begins with ‘F’ and it ends with ‘U,’ ” said Mayor Lori Lightfoot on the president’s response to protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd.

Pritzker lifts all restrictions on Illinois churches after US Supreme Court challenge; US Supreme Court To Take Up The Re-Opening of Churches.

Gov. JB Pritzker has lifted all restrictions on churches in Illinois after a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court, and has issued a set of guidelines instead.

SUPREME COURT UPDATE: Justice Kavanaugh has entered an order, requiring Governor Pritzker to respond to churchs’ emergency injunction application BY THURSDAY (tonight)at 8 pm.

At the same time, in another emergency petition arising out of the Ninth Circuit, handled by my good friend Paul M. Jonna and his colleagues, Justice Kagan has ordered Governor Newsom of California to respond, also by 8 pm on Thursday night.

This is a GREAT sign. And lightning fast. Most of these early-stage injunction petitions die without any response/action. This move by Kavanaugh and Kagan indicate strong interest by the Court to at least LOOK at this issue of reopening Churches BEFORE another Sunday passes.

Former Chicago mayoral candidate, community activist and businessman Dr. Willie Wilson sent a letter to Washington, D.C. to enlist the support of President Trump and Attorney General William Barr in the dispute regarding houses of worship.

In the letter, Wilson complained about Mayor Lightfoot and the citations the city issued and disorderly conduct charges filed against the churches.

Wilson said that if places that sell alcohol are allowed to be considered essential services, so should churches.

“The problem with the mayor and also the governor is that they put themselves above the law,” said Wilson. “And I understand this Sunday, they were supposed to give a ticket to the people who come to service. This is not China or the Soviet Union. This is America where we have rights.”

Wilson has offered to pay those fines.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ordered Pritzker to respond to the churches by 8 p.m. Thursday.

Just hours before, the Illinois Department of Public Health issued a set of guidelines for churches, none of which are mandatory.

The guidelines encourage churches to avoid in-person activity and continue to hold remote services, or allow congregants to meet outdoors.

Governor Pritzker’s Toilet Scam Contractor Got a $9 Million Coronavirus Contract to Remodel Westlake Hospital That Never Re-Opened; And Now Is Working On the Governor’s Wisconsin Home

I’m sure it will be a surprise to JB but by pure coincidence, the government spent $ 9 million dollars to work on facilities that never opened. I paraphrase our last (of several) federally convicted felon Illinois Governor, “This is fucking golden.” I hope they have a cell big enough.

Illinois politicians have no shame. Long known that there is little difference between Democrats and Republicans in the state legislature. Still known as “the combine”. Just a big pile of corrupt shit. Many hope JB ends up as our third of last four governors in the federal pen.

Is it just a coincidence the contractor involved in Pritzker’s private construction projects got coronavirus contracts?

A detail tucked in a Fox 32 investigative report about Illinois contractors trekking across the border to build a new mansion at Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s Wisconsin horse farm raised the eyebrow of somebody who knows how deals get done in America’s most corrupt state.

The “dwelling contractor” listed on Wisconsin building permits, Bulley & Andrews, is the same company caught up in the alleged “scheme to defraud” Cook County taxpayers by removing toilets from one of Pritzker’s Gold Coast mansions. The toilet scheme is still being investigated by the feds.

In April, Bulley & Andrews scored a taxpayer funded firm-fixed-price contract worth nearly $9 million to convert the former WestLake Hospital in Melrose Park into a COVID-19 acute-care site. The contractor also worked as a subcontractor doing similar work at Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin. Both jobs got done, but neither site opened

The contracts were issued as part of a $1.7 billion effort spearheaded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which Bulley & Andrews hadn’t worked with since 1944. A Courthouse News investigation raised concerns that much of the work had been “awarded to contractors without transparency.”

Pritzker’s administration didn’t respond to a request for an interview about the state’s role coordinating the work on the alternate COVID-19 treatment sites with the federal government.

So, I didn’t get the chance to ask: Is it just a coincidence the contractor involved in construction projects (and toilet removals) at Pritzker’s mansions scored the lucrative work tied to the governor’s coronavirus response?

Sure, I could have snuck a question in at Pritzker’s daily televised pandemic updates, filed a series of Freedom of Information requests, appealed the administration’s almost certain denial and tried to convince the boss to pony up for an expensive legal fight in the name of “gotcha” journalism.

But really, that’s a waste of time. During the pandemic, I’ve learned from experience that the Pritzker administration dodges questions, ignores interview requests and blocks access to public information with vigor. The rest is details.

That’s why I wasn’t shocked over the holiday weekend when Pritzker put out a public statement disavowing a provision tucked in “Restore Illinois” legislation that would have limited access to public information. 

Simple acts of reporting made it clear to me that the governor’s administration doesn’t need any help or extra time keeping secrets from the public. 

Around the time we first learned African-Americans were the hardest hit by the pandemic, the state didn’t just deny my request for coronavirus death demographics. 

An Illinois Department of Public Health department lawyer called to warn me that possession of data from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Officer (which I attached to my request as an example of the demographic information I was seeking) violated federal laws.

“You better call a lawyer,” the state lawyer yelled. 

In April, my FOIA request for personal protective equipment invoices and an accounting of the state’s pre-pandemic PPE stockpile (and before Pritzker started blaming President Trump for a shortage) got denied like I was asking for wartime secrets. I asked for the documents because a public health department insider told me the state hadn’t replenished stockpiles in 2019. 

The public health department’s denial cited provisions in state law prohibiting the release of “vulnerability assessments, security measures, and response policies or plans that are designed to identify, prevent, or respond to potential attacks upon a community’s population or systems, facilities, or installations, the destruction or contamination of which would constitute a clear and present danger to the health or safety of the community,” and a bunch of other things that I did not ask for. 

All I wanted to know was what the state’s stockpile looked like before the governor put taxpayers on the hook for those secretly chartered flights to an overpriced PPE shopping trip in China while nurses shared masks as they treated early COVID-19 patients. 

The administration could easily have answered those straight forward questions over the phone.

But the coronavirus crisis has taught us that upfront honesty isn’t how Pritzker governs.

It’s not the way big money deals always get done in Illinois, either.

Chicago sees deadliest Memorial Day weekend in years: 10 fatally shot, 38 wounded

Hey Lori!
Stop worrying about churches being open, guarding the lake front from joggers, looking for family picnics and let’s not forget enforcement of wearing a masks and let the police be police and stop the crime.

Ten people are dead and 38 others are wounded so far in weekend shootings in Chicago — the deadliest Memorial Day weekend since 2015, when 12 people were killed.

Despite the state’s stay-at-home order, the weekend’s death toll has already surpassed last year’s holiday weekend, when seven people were killed and 34 were injured during the period from 5 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Tuesday.

In 2018, seven people died and 30 others were wounded. In 2017, six people were killed and 44 others were wounded. In 2016, six people were killed and 56 wounded.

At the beginning of Memorial Day weekend — the unofficial start of summer — Chicago Police Supt. David Brown announced opening a Summer Operations Center to centralize police resources in an effort to tamp down on summer gun violence.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Sends Armed Police To Shut Down Black Baptist Church on Sunday, May 24, 2020

Pastor Lewis said Christian pastors are under attack in Chicago and they need help: “All we are seeking is the same consideration and trust that is being tendered toward the liquor stores, abortion clinics and Walmart,” he told the Todd Starnes Show.

Courtney Lewis, the pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Chicago, was in the middle of his sermon when he heard loud banging on front doors. It was the police and they were denied entry into the sanctuary.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot gave the brush off to President Donald Trump:

Mayor Lori Lightfoot had dispatched three squad cards and two unmarked cars filled with armed officers. A representative from the mayor’s office was also present.

Pastor Lewis said the intent was to shut down their Sunday services. It was “like the Soviet-style KGB,” he said.

“The only thing she hasn’t done yet is beat the doors down and arrest our members,” the pastor said.

Pastor Lewis tells the Todd Starnes Radio Show that the men of the church were instructed not to open the doors during the services — per protocol.

“Thankfully our doors were locked as a normal safety precaution we take each service to protect our members from the escalating gun violence in Chicago,” the pastor said.

A church usher, who is typically positioned outside the building during the services, saw the mayor’s goon force attempt to enter the building and began taking photographs.

Even more disturbing, an individual in an unmarked car with tinted windows was seen filming and photographing church members as they arrived to worship Jesus Christ.

“The mayor wants to educate everyone into compliance – which means intimidate,” the pastor said.

Rev. Lewis wrote a letter to U.S. Attorney John Lausch pleading for help and protection against the city’s Democrat mayor and her jackbooted thugs.

He said the church has gone out of its way to follow CDC guidelines by having online services, outdoor services and engaging in social distancing. All church members must also have their temperature taken before entering the sanctuary.

“We are trying to follow the laws of man as much as reasonably possible but when the laws of man conflict with the laws of God I as a pastor have a duty to follow the laws of God,” he wrote. “We will not be intimidated by this overhanded government bully, but we are requesting the assistance of our president and our Justice Department in correcting this grave miscarriage of the law.”

Pastor Lewis said Christian pastors are under attack in Chicago and they need help.

“All we are seeking is the same consideration and trust that is being tendered toward the liquor stores, abortion clinics and Walmart,” he told the Todd Starnes Show.

JUDGE MCHANEY, of Clay County, SPEAKS HIS MIND IN FRIDAY AFTERNOON CASE, Mainer v Pritzker on 5/22/2020

Michael McHaney of Clay County had this to say at the conclusion of the case he heard yesterday afternoon (Mainer v Pritzker) in the Clay County courtroom:

“Since the inception of this insanity, the following regulations, rules or consequences have occurred: I won’t get COVID if I get an abortion, but I will get COVID if I get a colonoscopy. Selling pot is essential, but selling goods and services at a family owned business is not. Pot wasn’t even legal and pot dispensaries didn’t even exist in this state until five months ago and, in that five months, they have become essential, but a family-owned business in existence for five generations is not.

Judge McHaney

A family of six can pile in their car and drive to Carlyle Lake without contracting COVID but, if they all get in the same boat, they will. We are told that kids rarely contract the virus and sunlight kills it, but summer youth programs, sports programs are cancelled. Four people can drive to the golf course and not get COVID but, if they play in a foursome, they will. If I go to Walmart, I won’t get COVID but, if I go to church, I will. Murderers are released from custody while small business owners are threatened with arrest if they have the audacity to attempt to feed their families.

These are just a few of examples of rules, regulations and consequences that are arbitrary, capricious, and completely devoid of anything even remotely approaching common sense.

State’s attorneys in this state, county sheriffs, mayors, city councils and county boards have openly and publicly defied these orders followed by threats to withhold funding and revocation of necessary licenses and certifications unless you obey. Our economy is shut down because of a flu virus with a 98 percent plus survival rate. Doctors and experts say different things weekly. The defendant cites models in his opposition. The only thing experts will agree on is that all models are wrong and some are useful.

The Centers for Disease Control now says the virus is not easily spread on surfaces. The defendant in this case orders you to stay home and pronounces that, if you leave the state, you are putting people in danger, but his family members traveled to Florida and Wisconsin because he deems such travel essential. One initial rationale why the rules don’t apply to him is that his family farm had animals that needed fed. Try selling that argument to farmers who have had to slaughter their herds because of disruption in the supply chain.

When laws do not apply to those who make them, people are not being governed, they are being ruled. Make no mistake, these executive orders are not laws. They are royal decrees. Illinois citizens are not being governed, they are being ruled. The last time I checked, Illinois citizens are also Americans and Americans don’t get ruled. The last time a monarch tried to rule Americans, a shot was fired that was heard around the world. That day led to the birth of a nation consensually governed based upon a document which ensures that on this day in this, any American courtroom tyrannical despotism will always lose and liberty, freedom and the constitution will always win.”—Judge Michael D. McHaney, Clay County court, Mainer v. Pritzker, argued May 22, 2020.

Thank you, Judge McHaney. You said it beautifully.

Illinois General Assembly Votes Themselves A Pay Raise In The Middle of the Pandemic and Increases The Budget $2 Billion Dollars

The Illinois House just voted for a $42.8 billion dollar budget. This budget actually INCREASES spending by $2 billion!!! In the midst of declining revenue during this financial crisis. To top it all off, it also includes a PAY RAISE for lawmakers. Unbelievable!!

Thank goodness our current State Representative Bradley Stephens voted against all of this.
✅ Increase Spending
✅ Increase Debt
✅ Get a raise!

Last night (or this morning) at 1:15 am while you were asleep how did the Illinois Democrats in Springfield address 20% unemployment, families losing their life savings and the financial strain of this pandemic? Did you think they might show empathy and vote to cut their pay (already near the highest in the country) 20% like many people have had to do to keep their jobs in the private sector? If you guessed that you are wrong. For the second time in 12 months the Democrats in Springfield voted themselves a PAY RAISE. Good morning!

After weeks of doing nothing, our “essential” state government late last night passed a budget that includes the following.

Includes a $1,800 pay raise for legislators.

Spends almost $43 billion despite revenues totaling roughly $37 billion.

The remaining budget hole is financed on THE HOPE OF A massive federal government bailout that I am sure the Feds will be more than happy to just hand out to a broke, corrupt state.

With the $5 billion in new debt and approximately $6 billion in a not yet set federal bailout, the state plans to spend $11 billion more than they plan to bring in.

And you all were complaining that that new math doesn’t work. PFFTT

“Americans seem to accept the restrictions on our rights to speech, religion, travel and commercial activities simply because the origin of those restrictions is a popularly elected person.”

Our Communities and YOUR Families deserve better!

Our Illinois Democrats just voted to give all the legislators a pay raise! This is the second year in a row they got a pay raise!. They are the fifth highest paid legislators in the nation while the state is the worst run state in the Union.

the graphic shared shows 11 Not Voting. The ILGA website show 68 Y, 44N and 1 NV.

They also voted for a budget that is $2 billion more than last year. Indiana, though, just a day ago CUT their budget 15%.

It also includes about $5 billion more in debt.

Meanwhile, we are in an economic crisis! Over one million Illinoisans lost their job in the last 9 weeks. Small businesses – and large- are closing their doors for good. Many others had significant pay cuts. What the hell is the matter with these people?

Well, here’s the deal. They are counting on you forgetting about this by Novemeber. They are especially counting on the Democrats plodding along to continue to vote them back into office and others to be bedazzzled and confused by glossy mailers that lie about their positions to sway voters to vote for them again. They are counting on the special interests to fund their campaigns.

And – they are counting on a federal bailout from Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Casten. And they are counting on being out of office with their hefty pension before it all comes tumbling down.
