Would Joe Biden transform the American Way into the Chicago Way
The Chicago Tribune ^ | October 24, 2020 | John Kass

Is Joe Biden the “big guy” engaged in foreign influence peddling, about to transform the American Way into the Chicago Way if he’s elected president?

That’s for you to decide. You’re a voter.

But being properly skeptical isn’t the same as having complete lack of curiosity about Hunter Biden’s dealings and about whether his father, who was vice president and who might become president, used political leverage to help.

Yet many outlets covering Biden’s campaign don’t seem that curious.

The story about damaging emails purportedly to and from Hunter Biden on questionable foreign business deals simmered initially on the pages of the New York Post, then was brought to a boil by President Donald Trump who is desperate to rip the lid off and serve it piping hot.

All Biden and his son Hunter had to do was say unequivocally the damaging emails were false, that the laptop on which the emails did not belong to Hunter.

But the Biden camp has not said that.

In the last presidential debate, moderator Kristen Welker of NBC questioned Biden about the email story and whether Hunter’s foreign business dealings in Ukraine and China were unethical.

Joe Biden did not say the emails found on that laptop were fabricated. Joe Biden did not say that the laptop wasn’t his son’s. He did not say the emails were spliced by some Russian spy.

Biden has been around politics for half a century. He knows what he’s doing. His strategy? Run out the clock. He might get away with it.

It’s perfectly OK be skeptical of an “October surprise.” But if you’re from Chicago or Illinois, you also would want some answers. And that doesn’t make you a conspiracy theorist.

Just don’t toss all your curiosity into the river. You might need it someday.

In a normal world, Joe Biden would be toast already. The Big Tech and lame stream media are trying to carry this mediocrity across the finish line so Kamala Harris can assume control and impose socialism/communism upon America.

The Chicago Way? I’m thinking more along the lines of The San Francisco Way...with homeless on every street corner smoking crack and defecating wherever they please.

The Clinton Foundation has to make Joe look like he ran a lemonade stand.

This is all a dodge.

I was listening to a local Boston talk show yesterday and a caller told the host (the outstanding Howie Carr) that BLM should stand for “Bidens Loot Millions”. I have now officially adopted that as my tagline!

Every Dem Comgress member voted for this except one FORCE Schools To Let Male Athletes Compete In Girls’ Sports...Any Dem congressman who didn’t support this got kicked out by holding their primary in remapped districts. Why isn’t this an issue in this 2020 campaign by the Republicans ?

.. Democratic candidate for America’s Vice President California Sen. Kamala Harris sponsored a Senate bill that would that would force funding public schools to allow biologically male athletes who identify as transgender on girls’ sports teams.

In March 2019, Harris cosponsored the Equality Act, which would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 . Among other things, the bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls
.Also did this and this


.. And why there is no such thing as a Conservative Dem in Congress An example is Illinois 3rd district
.. Todays Democrats weren’t happy with this father then son votes against abortion and the son’s being the only congressional democrat to vote NO on allowing men to to call themselves a women and compete with women in college sports. To stop this the demoncrats decided to remap the areas which supported them for their primary. The ward (the 23rd) and the congressional district formerly the 5th which they changed into being the 3rd Illinois congressional by taking ward areas which are dominated by hispanic fore names and placing them into the Louis Gutierez district.

In the reshaped 3rd Congressional district primary Daniel Lipinski lost because of redistricting. Of a district which had previously included adjacent Chicago city wards to his 23rd. which was “re-mapped in 2012 after former alderman and ward committeeman now congressman William O Lipinski annouced his retirement and wanted his son for his congressional replacement .

The remap was replacing ward boundaries of the 14th known as the stockyards which had experienced demographic changes. They chopped up and called sections of not only the 23 rd but the of adjacent 12th and 15th wards now the 14th ward

Where because Chicago alderman oversee routing of such things as garbage collections it affected getting city services . Some have complained of seeing rodents since as well as complained of poor road maintainence in their distrct.Now with this remap if your residence was in one ward. Now has your neighbor across the street or a block down is in another ward

.. The 5th was a district in the 1950’s which was a part of the third largest school district in the country run by the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago. Those city wards were primarily composed of dozens of traditional value family oriented Catholic/Christian communities centered around their churches and their schools. Hence opposed to funding such things as abortion and LGBT activities rather for issues that dealt exclusively with city issues such as a subway L service and the Stevenson Expressway.

Those Wards once were reliable supporters of Dan’s father, William O Lipinski. But after the 2012 redistricting the number of precincts in the 23rd were cut back to 39 and even their ward headquarters location was stuck in another ward.

And where many wards had areas with hispanic last names those areas were redistricted and assigned to the Louis Gutieriez’s district. Where areas where buildings were abandoned affected by the no money down home mortgages or had changed because of this. The ward such as the 14th known as Back of The Yards because of the former stock yards which has since relocated was remapped to include portions of other wards mainly the 23rd which Those results are posted below which actually tear up the concept of a neighborhood and pit people against each other by using division.

In some of those wards areas of city blocks which were zoned exclusively for single family dwellings residents suddenly found their neighborhood having houses torn down and being replaced with multiple apartments with the units not required to furnish parking facilities and many renters were illegals. Much of which fit the plans for the suburbs

yes, the Clinton foundation was major league with the built-in veneer of charitable good works. Biden's grifting was so poorly managed that he actually used his own, reckless, addict son as the bag man. Monumentally stupid move by Joe. That alone should disqualify him from ever being POTUS.
