Chicago Has Become A Rotting, Decaying, Crime-Ridden Hellhole – And The Rest Of America Will Soon Follow

I don’t know why anyone would want to live in Chicago at this point.  According to the latest estimate that I could find, “over 117,000 gang members” currently live in the city, and there is so much violence that it regularly makes headlines all over the globe.

Some of the wealthy areas of Chicago still look nice, but many communities have been transformed into something straight out of a war zone.  Large churches, hospitals, and factories that were once so beautiful are now rotting and decaying all over the city, and a vibrant open-air drug market scares customers away from local businesses.  Sadly, the truth is that the entire country is going down the exact same path that Chicago has gone.

Coming into last year, Chicago was known as one of the murder capitals of the world, but nobody expected the murder rate to spike “by more than 50% in 2020”

Chicago police also released the final crime number for 2020 Friday which showed that shootings and murders jumped up by more than 50% in 2020.

In 2020, there were 769 murders, up considerably compared to the 495 murders tallied in 2019.

As for shootings, the city logged 3,261 last year, a big jump from 2,140 shootings in 2019. The number of shooting victims climbed to 4,033 in 2020, up from 2,598 in 2019.

But even though last year was so horrific, some officials are expressing optimism about the future.

For example, Dr. Faran Bokhari believes that the COVID vaccine is going to make a tremendous difference

“I think our savior is going to be the COVID vaccination,” Dr. Faran Bokhari, Chief of Trauma at Cook County Hospital. “I think people are so tired of being indoors and not being able to do what they usually do.”

Yes, gang members and drug addicts will feel so much better about life and will become a lot less violent once they are vaccinated and can get out into the streets a lot more.

Good luck with all that.

State Representative Marcus Evans has a different strategy in mind.  He believes that banning “Grand Theft Auto” will solve this crisis

It’s no secret that crime is out of control in Illinois and one lawmaker has a solution. In response to an increase in carjackings in Chicago, State Representative Marcus Evans Jr. wants a law passed making it illegal for retailers to sell violent video games to minors. “Grand Theft Auto” is not mentioned in the bill but Evans pointed to that specific game during a press conference on Monday.

Meanwhile, people continue to flee the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois at a staggering pace.

In fact, the exodus that we witnessed in 2020 is being described as “historic”

Illinois recorded a seventh straight year of population loss from July 2019 to July 2020, but the year’s drop was historic – 79,487 residents, the most since World War II and the second largest of any state in raw numbers or percentage of population. Larger declines year over year have also caused Illinois to suffer the largest raw decline in population, and second largest on a percentage basis since 2010, shedding 253,015 people – triple any other state’s losses.

I can understand why so many residents are leaving for greener pastures, but other major cities are also seeing dramatic spikes in crime too.

One study that was recently released found that murder rates in 34 major U.S. cities rose by an average of 30 percent last year

THE HOMICIDE RATE across 34 American cities increased by 30% on average during 2020, according to experts, as the U.S. reeled from the coronavirus pandemic and widespread protests against police brutality.

The newly released report from the National Commission on COVID-19 and Criminal Justice found that homicides rose in 29 of the 34 cities studied and that the three largest cities in the sample – New York, Los Angeles and Chicago – accounted for 40% of the additional homicide victims in 2020.

At this point, nearly all of our big cities are becoming unsafe.

If you want to avoid all of the violence, you could try moving to a small town, but that might not work either.

For example, the small town of Chickasha, Oklahoma sounds like it would be a nice place to live, but look at what just happened there

A repeat felon has confessed to killing his neighbor, cutting out her heart and feeding it to his family before murdering his uncle and a four-year-old girl, Oklahoma authorities say.

Lawrence Paul Anderson, 42, allegedly stabbed the neighbor, Andrea Lynn Blankenship, to death at her home in Chickasha on February 9.

Unfortunately, the truth is that our entire society is in the process of melting down all around us, and this process is only going to accelerate during the very difficult years ahead.

The worse economic conditions become, the more desperate people are going to get, and right now more businesses are shutting down with each passing day.

For instance, we just learned that Fry’s Electronics will be permanently shutting down all of their stores

Consumer electronics retailer Fry’s Electronics is going out of business after nearly 36 years.

Fry’s “has made the difficult decision to shut down its operations and close its business permanently as a result of changes in the retail industry and the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic,” the company said in a statement on its website. The company said it has begun the “wind-down” process as of Wednesday and has stopped its normal operations.

As I have discussed in numerous recent articles, poverty is exploding all over America and this economic downturn is hitting those at the bottom of the economic food chain particularly hard.

As this economic crisis grows, those at the bottom of the economic food chain will increasingly be venturing into wealthy neighborhoods to take out their frustrations.

Those with a “Robin Hood mentality” will try to claim that there is “justice” in taking from the rich and giving to the poor, but in reality, it will just be a way to justify the rampant lawlessness in our streets.

The rioting, looting, and violence that we have seen so far is just the beginning.

Much worse is coming, and it won’t be too long before the entire country looks like the streets in the worst parts of Chicago.

      This entire country is a hell hole. If one woman telling the truth is such a colossal threat to this country, that the surveillance state/police state, medical mafia, and InfraTard aka InfraGard, had to go out of their way and to such extreme measures as performing illegal unconsented brain surgery on me, stalking me, falsely imprisoning me in my own home for over three years now by constantly breaking in and stealing, vandalizing, and moving things around, everytime that I attempt to leave, or even do yard work, stalking and surveilling me, using vault 7 technology on me to silence and isolate me even more, and use mob excess deterent using silent audio type technology developed by Waveband, and I have notified everyone and not a single person has been arrested, then obviously, I am not the problem. They are! I am a law abiding born in America citizen and they are psychopathic, narcisstic, megalomaniacal, serial criminal psychopaths beyond evil that I was even aware of! They also revived me from a clinical state of death from a suicide attempt, and did not stop terrorizing me when my Mother, brother, and dog died.

      The devil is definitely on the loose! and it is definitely not covid!

      This is a type of evil that leaves me at a total loss of words to decscribe, in an attempt, it could only be deemed satanic, or demonically posessed!

      I am not the only victim of this psychological torture and terrorism either which has theatened my physical well being as well, from constant sleep deprivvation, constant stress, and the lack of exercise out doors as a result of it, are clearly threats to my physical well being.

      Of course, Hanibal Lecter did the same thing that Lawrence Paul Anderson did, but that was only a horror movie, and Jeffrey Dahmer, and Ed Gein are real too, and also from this hell hole, the mistake on the lake. No point in moving at my age. The surveillance state is all over the country, and so are evil people, which this article is just yet another example of. We are bombarded daily with how evil monsters terrorize people. They are not specific to nationality, income bracket, class, education, race, sex, or age.

      I can only equate this experience as the eqivalent of a blind, mute, deaf defenseless woman being gang raped non stop, round the clock for almost 7 years. It is monsterously evil!

      It is hardly any surprise that the Biden team doesn’t have any straight shooters on it. On January 19, the day before his inauguration, I had ten minutes of what was fake good luck, which of course meant that Biden and Blinken lied, what else would they do? At first I had read that Blinken said that he was going to move away from focussing on Israel, and wanted to strengthen ties with Iran and re-join the JCPOA, then said that he wanted to strengthen ties with Russia, and rejoin START. Then the bad news started coming in, that Blinken wanted to add Isreal to the JCPOA, which would never work because the Israelis have been falsely claiming that Iran was just around the corner from developing nuclear weapons, whuch one weapon would require at least 8 pounds of highly enriched uraniam at 93% pure or above, and the Iranians are not enriching uranium at even 30% pure. There is no legitimate excuse to expect a country to forfeit its right to self-defense. It is an outrageously ridiculous expection!

      The U.S. has yet again bombed Syria and they are claiming that they did it because of Iranian troops in Syria, but forget that Syria is a sovereign nation that has requested Iranian military support. The U.S. is also claiming that Iran attacked Irbil. There is no evidence to support this that I am aware of.

      These are dangerous minds that are continuing on the kamikazi mission thathas been going on for 43 years, or longer, depending on whoch country is focussed on, of course, that does not include Russia, or support for Israel, but demonization of Iran, since the Carter administration supported the Ayatollah Khomeini Islamic revolution, and most likely the hostage crisis as well, supported by the CIA so that Reagan would be elected. It could have been stopped right away. They insisted that Carter wait and delay, and then Elliot Abrahms ended up trading arms dor hostages and releasing them.

    8. Hi Mr. Michael Snyder you are absolutely right there was a recent Mass shooting in the white suburbs of Philadelphia by a 17 year old African American male from Philadelphia inner city who went to the bowling alley In a white suburban area outside of Philadelphia and shot and killed a 30 year old man inside the bowling alley and injured 4 other adults in children were hiding behind closets and it got no media attention

      My hope all my life has been to one day be looking out my kitchen window and see a nuclear mushroom cloud rising up from Chicago the city so nice they burned it twice. I would rather deal with the radioactive fallout for a year then deal with the a-hole F.I.P.s from Chiraq.

    10. cranerigger says:

      Predominately our cities are governed by folks that have a (D) after their names. Sure, they promise all kinds of taxpayer-paid-for goodies (think redistribution of wealth) but the imbeciles have no idea how to govern. Take Mayor Wheeler (D) of Portland that was well educated & looked like a competent candidate on paper (his resume’). He has proven himself incapable of handling a crisis as his inaction in the face of riots essentially punishes the law-abiding-tax-payers of his city. Lightfoot (D) of Chicago, De Blasio (D) of New York, etc., demonstrate more of the same type of incompetence. “Keep voting for Demonrats” is stated facetiously to those with critical thinking skills.

      • Yikes!! says:

        Cranerigger, I recently heard that since the rats are all now turning on one of their own in NYC – that being Cuomo ,that the Dems are now possibly positioning Deblahsio as a possible candidate to run and replace Andy. So,NYC would have someone just as bad or even worse than the nursing home killer 😨

      In the Post 9/11 World, the Smoke Has Cleared and the Mirrors Have Shattered! 

      InfraGard was the uniting of the mentally incompetent with the criminal element, and is even worse than the police, but does include the police, and does attract the criminal element like a magnet to commit illegal, unconsented, pornography, illegal entries and break-ins, theft, including intellectual property theft perpetrated by the lazy, mentally impaired bird brained parrots including in the media, and many in the national and international alternative media, vandalism, theft, identity theft, hacking with vault 7 technology, psychotronic torture, abduction, and even murder, black market organ sales, illegal prostitution rings, obviously including pedophilia based on police running for profit child porn websites that sexually enslave children, and further endanger their lives by having this illegal pornography on TOR, for the totally unbelieveable excuse of protecting children, while sexually enslaving and sexually exploiting children for profit, and based on Epstein, and Maxwell, and all of the FILTHY RICH and poweful political criminal element that they catered to.
      This entire country is a hell hole. If one woman telling the truth is such a colossal threat to this country, that the surveillance state/police state, medical mafia, and InfraTard aka InfraGard, had to go out of their way and to such extreme measures as performing illegal unconsented brain surgery through my nose and ears on me while unconscious after a suicide attempt, and had to be revived from a clinical state of death at Columbia St. Mary’s Ozaukee owned by Ascension Health in 2014,  stalking me, falsely imprisoning me in my own home for over three years now by constantly breaking in and stealing, vandalizing, and moving things around, everytime that I attempt to leave, or even do yard work, stalking and surveilling me, using vault 7 technology on me to silence and isolate me even more, and use mob excess deterent using silent audio type technology developed by Waveband, and I have notified everyone in government, healthcare, attornies, the media, and not a single person has been arrested, then obviously, I am not the problem. They are! Equally obvious is that this country is filled with monsters and cowards!  I am a law abiding born in America citizen and they are psychopathic, narcisstic, megalomaniacal, serial criminal psychopaths beyond evil that I was even aware of! They also prevented me from mourning and would not stop terrorizing me when my Mother, brother, and dog died. 

      I know who some of them are, but not all. The best way to describe the serial crime spree of total life rape that they have perpetrated against me would be the equivalent of a paralyzed, blind, deaf, mute person being gang raped round the clock, non stop for years on end! That is exactly the way that I feel! It is unforgiveable!

      InfraGard Low IQ Losers Club and cult of corruption and terrorists:

      Analysis by InfraGard in 2019 has pointed out that America’s “anti-vaxxer movement” would pose a threat to national security in the event of a “pandemic with a novel organism” and warned the US anti-vaccine movement would also be connected with “social media misinformation and propaganda campaigns” orchestrated by the Russian government.

      This is a type of evil that leaves me at a total loss of words to decscribe, in an attempt, it could only be deemed satanic, or demonically posessed! 

      I am not the only victim of this psychological torture and terrorism either which has theatened my physical well being as well, from constant sleep deprivvation, constant stress, and the lack of exercise out doors as a result of it, are clearly threats to my physical well being.

      When 9/11 happened, InfraTard was there!

      When the Boston Marathon bombings happened, InfraTard was there!

      When the Christmas Nashville bombing happened, InfraTard was there! 

      When $21 trillion vanshed from tne Pentagon, InfraTard was there! 

      When the Life Is Beautiful Vegas massacre happened, InfraTard was there, and CEO David Muren and Sorros shorted the casino stock right before the shooting! 

      When the scamdemic happened, InfraTard was there! 

      When BLM and Antifa looted, vandalized, and burned buildings down, IfraTard was there! 

      When the shootings at the Capitol happened, on 1/6/21 InfraTard was there! 

      What in the world would we do without the InfraTard terrorist cult network? 

      We would obviously be much safer and richer! 

      Anyone can report federal crime to the FBI without being an InfrGard member! 

      What is the lame excuse for being one?! We know that they are not good samaritans!

      https://www.InfraGard.org

      The FBI knows that you are mentally incompetent low IQ losers, as evidenced by the spelling! G A R D sounds like guard, rhymes with tard! Who in the hell do you think that you are fooling?!  Not me! Your lifestyles are crimes against humanity! There isn’t anything legitimate or respectable about you at all! You are serial criminal psyvhopaths! I know everything that I need to know about you! That you have no respect for rights defined in the constitution, no respect for individuals, no respect for the constitution, no respect for liberty, no respect for the American way of life! You have committed a multi year long crime spree on my life! You are not worthy or entitled to respect! You are the scum of the earth! You will be losers for the rest of your lives! Any false pretenses that you have previously had of respectability and legitimacy have been totally shatttered, and it is your own damn faults for committing serial crime sprees on my life, on America, and the world! You should be avoided like the plague! You are scumizen spies and retarded psychopathic fascists whose lifestyles and ideologies have no legal, moral, or intellectual justification! You have terrorized me, and my family! You are the worst thing that has ever happened to this country! Only InfraGard managed to be more corrupt and anti-American than the CIA and congress! You want people to believe that you are sexy spies, but you are sick, disgusting, perverted, geeks, creeps, freaks, and losers, and you will never be anything more than that are a quickly shattered illusion for the rest of your lives!

      I believe that the serial criminal psychos in my neighborhood, and in the health scare sector, and in the media that have been  terrorizing me with constant surveillance, impersonation with mammalian mimicry,  ecolalia, break ins, hacking, vault 7 technology, illegal sadistic unconsented surgery while I was unconscious at St Mary’s Ozaukee, V2K, stealing, vandalizing, theft, stalking, etc., must be InfraGard terrorist cult members, whose only difference to The Order Of Nine Angels is their names! They use the same practices and techniques! The FBI is the common denominator between the two. They are a bunch of complete losers that live cannibalistic lifestyles in the MICIMATT InfraTard satanic cult of retards that belong in prison for life! They will not stop! They are a cult of serial killers! They will not stop until they are dead, or in prison! 

      They spy, They lie, They deny! If you repeat a lie often enough, people will think that you are pathological liars and you will lose all credibility! That is the way that reality works, but the retards haven’t figured that out yet, and I do jot know f they will ever have that awakening!

      “Grand Theft Auto” is not mentioned in the bill but Evans pointed to that specific game during a press conference on Monday.

      In times of ease and gluttony, the people become morbid and want blood sports.

      In times of war and hyper-industrialization, they return to nature and fairy things.

      It seems to be a psychological means of population control.

      I think, there would be little appetite for the video game, if you were to harden the kid and teach him a trade.

    14. Newkidontheblock says:

      We all know why Chicago is a shit hole. As well as other states. Too many uncivilized bottom feeders living off the backs of the working class.

    15. Just wait till all those migrants come to America. It’s going to stink to high heaven. There will be more pollution, sewer systems backing up, more crime etc. The horrible list goes on and all because a bunch of third world creatures didn’t believe in birth control. They did nothing productive except eat, poop and breed.
