How The Sanctuary Cities Are Fairing After Thanksgiving


On November 15, 2016, the following cities across the nation flatly stated in the news that they would uphold the “Sanctuary” status of their cities while other cities have also flatly refused or declared themselves to be “sanctuary” havens across the US. Every one of the cities listed below are strict gun regulation cities. Some if not most are members or plan to become members of the gun control advocacy group Mayors Against Illegal Guns from information read.

Anyone seeing the pattern here?

As to Chicago – I honestly am not trying to downgrade the tragedies you in Chicago are experiencing; but, I have one question for the citizens – With these kinds of statistics, WHY is Rahm Emanuel still mayor? Is it fear of repercussions since Emanuel appears to be tight with Obama?

Emanuel’s administration is obviously not functioning well enough to reduce crime or bring in business. The Chicago area population in 2010 was 9,729,825. Today it is estimated to be 9,427,676. He has been in office since 2011 and Chicago  stats have taken a nosedive since then, especially in 2014 and 2015.  In my eyes at least there has to be some correlation.  

When I see headlines like “58 Shot, 8 Fatally, in Thanksgiving Weekend Violence Across Chicago” out of local NBC Channel 5, I have to wonder why the city council isn’t out for his hide yet. Even more so, I have to wonder why in hades, MSM isn’t actually doing their job and reporting the truth…oh wait, yeah, it’s still Obama’s baby.  Time to throw out the stinky sewer water and get someone better qualified to do the job don’t you think, ladies and gentlemen?

For those claiming “Sanctuary City” above – your frigging crime stats are horrible. Residents of the cities – how is that awesome statement by your mayors sitting with all of you? I am surprised the residents haven’t called for resignations or tar and feathers by now.  But then they did elect Democrats now didn’t they, or did they? One never knows since the liberals and Democrats are crying so hard over cheating right now, just what actually happened to get them elected to be mayor. 

So Why Are Democrats So Worried About Trump?  Is it because we have been pissed off and begun digging into your backyard cemetery to find out the truth despite MSM and FCC efforts to shut up deplorables?

Trump may not be politically correct according to liberals, Democrats, and RINOS; but dammit, he is right. At least he has cared enough to try to bring our country together for its betterment.

Get off your crying jags and get on the bandwagon – statistics prove that politically correct, liberal ideas are detrimental to prosperity and growth.  They have brought about the decline of many cities over the years while making the mayors and representatives wealthier at the cost of lives and livelihoods.

    As Einstein said: “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results”. This would apply with Lefties.

    Lefties ignore human nature whereas a) the elite will steal anything not nailed down. b) the power brokers appoint unqualified hacks. c) costs go up. d) blame those who didn’t participate or had nothing to do with anything for the failures. d) rinse and repeat.

    Of course, none of this would be possible if the media did their job for a change as the media is the propaganda arm of the left which was accurately exposed by Trump.

    Gotta hand it to Trump for asking Blacks to vote for him saying “what have you got to lose?”.

    I see big changes coming beginning in January. Decent people have woken up and are demanding better.

    Sorta off-topic: smart illegals are making a mad rush south before the big push that is sure to follow.

  3. Peppermint says:

    I’d like to know the answer to why people keep voting in Rahm too. They must be nuts or is it fraud?

    • Uriel says:

      One absolutely has to wonder Peppermint. He walked into this job straight from Obama’s cabinet as White House Chief of Staff. Not too many people we know would forfeit a top level presidential position at the White House to become a mayor without purpose and direction from his boss whomever that may be. Even a large city such as Chicago wouldn’t be as plum a posting as those he had held prior to being appointed by Obama. 2003-2009 House of Rep – IL, 1993-1998 – Assistant to Pres. Clinton on political affairs and as the senior advisor to the president for policy and strategy. Served on Freddie Mac Board of Directors. Interesting note: he was actually rejected for running for mayor in a District Appellate Court but was later approved in Illinois Supreme Court…sounds totally fishy to me.

      • Peppermint says:

        It is totally fishy to me too. We know Rahm is just as much as a criminal as Obama. I sure wish there were some way to get rid of him, but I really think he wins by fraud which has been a mainstay for Chicago for many, many years.

        • Uriel says:

          Chicago and New Orleans are comparable in corruption Pepper. Both have been hotbeds for a hundred years or more

  4. Shar says:

    You have to wonder if they just lost hope. I agree Hardnox that Trump basically woke them up by planting a seed for a better life. He is right “what have you got to lose?”.

    The left is in turmoil. Imagine Pelosi out on her ear.

  5. Just Gene says:

    Coming up for WE THE PEOPLE a

    Her we go with apologies again, this time to John Frederick Coots

    (I just got back from a lovely trip
    across the USA
    I stopped off at Trump Tower
    to spend a holiday.
    I called on dear old Donald
    to see what I could see
    He took me in his office
    And told his plans to me, so…)
    You better watch out, it’s too late to cry
    It’s too late to pout, I’m telling you why
    Donald Trump is coming to town.
    He’s made his list, he checked it twice
    He knows who’s been naughty or nice
    Donald Trump is coming to town.
    He knows if you were lying,
    He knows if you’re a fake
    He knows if you’ve been good or bad
    It’s time to drain the lake.
    So you better watch out, it’s too late to cry
    It’s too late to pout, I’m telling you why
    Donald Trump is coming to town.
    With mortar and brick, he’ll build a wall,
    With help from Pence
    They’ll build a fence
    Donald Trump is coming to town
    The subpoenas they hand out
    Will make you cry and pout
    Donald Trump is coming to town
    The Dems in their dream land,
    Will understand they failed
    No marching on the streets
    Just marching to be jailed.
    So you better not cry, you better not pout
    We the PEOPLE are coming
    To drain the swamp out
    Donald Trump is coming to town.

    Boy oh boy! They keep voting for the corrupt sweathogs in Illinois and other liberal states. Look back in 2008: Vichy Goofarino was their Governor. And now in Chicago, they have a commie called Rahmmie Horsass running the city, squealing “Hello? How Are You? I’m Rahmmie Emmanuel Horsass! HYAH HYAH HYAH HYAH HYAH HYAH!”

  7. Shar says:

    Greg Abbott was on Fox today. No funding for sanctuary cities in his state. So they will have to hop the fence and go elsewhere.

    • Uriel says:

      Good for Mr. Abbott, Shar. EVERY governor should be cracking down on their states. Hopefully they will when Trump hits the state’s pocketbooks.
