You know, I would have thought a tough-talking ballet dancer like Rahm Emanuel would have been exactly what Chicago needed to crack down on rioters. Whodafigured he wouldn’t be up to the job?
This kind of reminds me about what I wrote about Obama before he got elected by fools, anyway: do you want a poodle or a Rottweiler? And dumbasses said, “Give us poodles or give us death!”
Residents of State Street Condo Told To Leave Chicago During NATO Summit

Chicago – Residents of a Chicago condo whose building will be in the eye of the NATO storm are being warned that they should move out for the weekend … or risk being trapped inside by rioters.
FOX Chicago News was first to report Friday that the people living in the 17-floor Library Tower building at 520 South State Street were warned in a letter from condo management that “we are STRONGLY recommending that all residents find places to stay during the conference from May 18 through May 21.”
NATO summits often attract crowds of thousands of protesters. Currently, a march is planned on Sunday, May 20, from the Petrillo Band Shell in Grant Park past Library Tower on State Street to McCormick Place.
The condo is hiring two off-duty police officers to provide security; those cops will be armed.
“In the event of a riot or the potential of one near the building, all access doors will be locked including the garage door,” the letter continues. “For everyone’s safety, we will be instructing anyone in the building to stay in his or her unit.”
“I can’t just leave my garage whenever I want. They’ll be holding us hostage in here,” said resident Sebrina Krielinger.
The condo is in a busy area on State between Harrison and Congress, and residents are used to a lot.
“It’s just pretty shocking to see and hear things are going to be scary in your own home,” said resident Jeff Lunz. “I think they’ve got everyone’s best interest in mind.”
The letter also warns:
- “We are strongly recommending that you do not have any guests over during this time including dog walkers and cleaning companies.”
- “There will be absolutely no deliveries or moves permitted between Friday, May 18 and Monday, May 21.”
- “The revolving door will be locked on Friday morning.”
“I’m inconvenienced by parades and a lot of other things. I can’t get out on the day of the Thanksgiving Day parade. So that’s just a part of city life,” said Lunz.
Coach is Right added his two cents to this story, saying:
When our Secret Service returns from their activities in Colombia, they are expected to release locations of concrete barriers and no go zones around McCormick Place on South Lake Shore Drive. Just how much more can Chicago citizens be asked to take? The black on black street crimes, shootings, murders already are approaching the ten year high for U.S. wars in the Middle East. This could get 1968 type ugly.
And of course we know what Obama’s Secret Service did in Colombia, don’t we?
Chicago is so screwed. Liberals let them down; so they elected more liberals. And then those liberals went to prison for corruption. So they elected still more liberals. And now they’re facing their own self-created Hurricane Katrina that is on the verge of swamping the city: so flee the sinking ship, ye rats!!!
Chicago is just one of many American cities who have been utterly destroyed by Democrats and liberal policies for a good one hundred years straight – and they STILL elect more Democrats!!!
The warning letter to Chicago reminds me of the signs Obama has posted in Arizona to warn the American people that he is abandoning this nation to narco-terrorist criminals:
Putting Obama or his stooge Rahm Emanuel in control of security is the equivalent of trying to make toy poodles watchdogs.
