“The City of Broad Shoulders”, whose shifty Far Left Democratic Mayor has imperiously proclaimed that President Donald J. Trump is not welcome in his city, has come up with a wackadoodle of a plan to curtail a very serious problem, which they have exported to cities and towns throughout the United States of America.

CHICAGO (CBS) — Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went even further on Thursday, suggesting the United Nations perhaps send in peacekeepers in the face of what he called a “quiet genocide.”
Boykin was traveling to New York to meet with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco of Argentina, the U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support, to seek international help with “horrific levels of shootings” and other violent crime in West Side and South Side communities.
“I’m hoping to appeal to the U.N. to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence, and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peacekeeping efforts, because I think it’s so critical for us to make sure that these neighborhoods are safe,” Boykin said at O’Hare International Airport on Thursday.
Boykin said leaders in Chicago and Cook County have failed to protect many communities from violent crime.
“There is a quiet genocide taking place in too many of our communities. Eighty percent of those who are being killed by gun violence are African American, and often killed at the hands of another African American,” he said. “So we must protect these population groups, and that’s what the United Nations does. They’re a peacekeeping force. They know all about keeping the peace, and so we’re hopeful that they’ll hear our appeal.”
Boykin said Chicago must “utilize every avenue” available to protect its people from gun violence, possibly including U.N. peacekeepers.
“They’ve been able to help in places like Africa and abroad, where they’ve sent troops in and sent forces in to help protect minority and vulnerable populations, and so quite frankly I think the same can be said for here in Chicago,” Boykin said. “I’m talking about physical security. I’m also talking about maybe suggestions for what we can do in Chicago to help protect our minority populations. We’re being, again, decimated by the violence that we see here in Chicago. I mean this is really a genocide, and we have to do something to stop it.”
Recent figures from the Chicago Police Department showed homicides and shootings were down through the end of November, compared to the same time last year, but it’s not enough for Boykin.
“I know that the mayor may tout the fact that the number of people being shot is down, and the number of people being killed is down, but let me tell you, we’ve had over 600 people killed by gun violence already this year alone. That is a huge number,” Boykin said.
Through the end of November, Chicago has had at least 620 homicides. While down significantly from last year, when there were more than 720 homicides through November, that’s still a significant increase from most of the past 15 years.
“In my community of Austin, we’ve had 450 people shot, and 80 people killed this year alone, and so we have to do more to protect these communities, and that’s what we’re going to do. If we can’t get it done here with the leaders of the city, the state, and the county working together to utilize their budgets to help protect these communities, then I have to appeal to a higher authority, and a higher force,” Boykin said.
The meeting at the U.N. has been in the works for more than a month.
“Quite frankly, we can’t wait until the mayor comes up with another 1,000 police to try to make the streets safer. Quite frankly, the people want to be safe right now in their homes and their neighborhoods, and we want to make sure that they’re safe,” Boykin said.
Boykin will return from his meeting in New York on Thursday night.
There are several times, during my musings, that I have described our blessed country as a sovereign nation. What does that mean?
It means that we are an “independent state”, completely independent and self-governing. We bow to no other country on God’s green Earth. We are beholden to no other nation. America stands on its own, with our own set of laws , The Constitution of the United States.
By seeking to invite the UN to “keep the peace” in Chicago, Illinois, a city in the United States of America, like it was downtown Beirut, is not only unconstitutional, it is a proposed violation of our Sovereignty as a Nation.
The continuing and escalating violence in the Windy City reminds me of the exercise in futility that was the 8 year Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).
During those long 8 years, one of his pet projects was Gun Control.
Obama claimed that by making it harder for honest American Citizens to purchase firearms, it would curb the crime and violence in our major cities, like his hometown of Chicago, which already had in place some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.
Fat lot of good that’s done, huh?
Have you ever watched a mother, when their toddler bumps their head on a table, attempt to distract their child, by pretending to spank the table, while saying, “Bad Table”?
That, in a nutshell, is what Former President Barack Hussein Obama was attempting to do by writing Executive Orders, in an attempt to limit the Constitutional Right of American Citizens to own guns.
He also attempted to join in an Arms Treaty with the same United Nations that Commissioner Boykin of Chicago is attempting to hand responsibility of his city over to.
Is there something in the water in Chicago?
By creating new restrictions, instead of enforcing gun laws which were already in place, Obama shifted the blame from the Radical Islamic Terrorists and those who operate outside of the law, like the gangs in Chicago, to America and her citizens.
Obama tried to control law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the Muslim Terrorists who perpetrated the San Bernadino Massacre and the thugs who turned Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago into their own personal “Killing Fields”.
Gun Control has not stopped the criminals from getting Guns in the UK.
Why did Obama and his minions think that more regulations were going to accomplish what the UK has not?
Were they that full of themselves that they thought that, since they were the “smartest people in the room”, that failed methods would actually work simply because they were the ones attempting them?
Were they just doing something to be doing something, in order to save face with their Far Left supporters?
Or, was it something more malevolent than just everyday politics?
Here’s a quote from an organization which backed Obama all the way during his Gun Confiscation efforts…
…the right-wing extremists opposing all efforts to curb gun violence are the same forces that rallied behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, hoping to undermine every other democratic right as well as the living standards of workers and ordinary Americans. It is for that reason, as well as the need to protect public safety, that the same coalition of labor and its allies that worked so hard and effectively to re-elect President Barack Obama must now go all-out to back his common sense proposals for gun law reform.
As Obama has charged, the extremists recklessly “gin up fear” that the government is coming to take away hunting rifles and personal weapons owned for legitimate self-defense. Led by the hate-mongering leadership of the National Rifle Association, they use a totally fraudulent and only very recent interpretation of the Second Amendment which they falsely claim as necessary for protecting every other freedom contained in the Bill of Rights.
One of their unhinged spokesmen, Texas talk show host Alex Jones, launched a national petition drive to deport CNN commentator Piers Morgan for questioning the Second Amendment. Jones said the amendment “isn’t there for duck hunting. It’s there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs,” and then went on to threaten insurrection “if you try to take our firearms.”
Actually, the Second Amendment wasn’t enacted with any of these things in mind. The amendment was adopted as a means to enable the new American republic, lacking a standing army or state national guards, to muster militia to put down domestic uprisings, including slave revolts, to repulse any attempted return by the British and to deal with clashes with Native Americans on the expanding frontier.
These issues vanished long ago. The Second Amendment is obsolete and now has been twisted to threaten the basic safety and security of all Americans. There is no basis for claiming this amendment was intended to permit unregulated personal acquisition of firearms, including amassing military weapons and private arsenals for “protection” from the government. No government, especially one that is new and fragile, has ever authorized citizens to arm themselves against it.
The preceding quote actually comes from peoplesworld.org, the website of Communist Party USA.
As I chronicled over the last seven and one-half years, Obama’s and the rest of the Far Left’s Gun Confiscation Movement came right out of the playbook of Marx and Lenin.
There is one thing that Obama did not take into account, however…
Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have. – Ronald Reagan
And, that is why they have failed.
Chicago gangs are committing more murder and mayhem on the blood-drenched streets of Chicago than ever before…and now, they have the fire power to eliminate Chicago’s “Thin Blue Line”, which is all that stands between law-abiding citizens and absolute anarchy.
If Obama and his minions had addressed the REAL problem of gang violence in Chicago, instead of trying to blame average American Gun Owners for the violent acts of criminals, Chicago and other major cities would be safer places to live in and visit today.
And, we wouldn’t have Far Left Liberal Commissioner Boykin attempting to invite the United Nations Peacekeeping Force to invade downtown Chicago, Illinois.
But, that would have made too much sense.
