Chicago police union sends clear message to Mayor Lightfoot over vaccine mandate, warns city could lose thousands of cops: ‘Hell, no,’ ‘We’ll see you in court’
“City employees are absolutely gonna be required to be vaccinated,” she continued. “We’re working through those discussions, which have been ongoing now for a couple of weeks with our colleagues in organized labor that represent city employees.”
The mandate will require all city employees, including police, to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 15.

But Glenn says it’s our State Department that’s still the biggest obstacle…

Woman’s Skin Rot Due To Pfizer Shot: Look At What The CDC, The WHO, Anthony Fauci And The Federal And State Governments Mean To Conceal (Pictures)
According to the latest data released by the CDC, between Dec. 14, 2020, and Aug. 6, 2021, a total of 571,831 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, with 12,791 deaths. This was an increase of 425 over the previous week.

Toxic epidermal necrolysis is a life-threatening skin disorder characterized by a blistering and peeling of the skin.
Toxic epidermal necrolysis usually presents as a fever initially, and other flu-like symptoms one to three weeks later, which is also followed by painful skin lesions that tend to coalescence.
Erosions and vesiculobullous lesions and epidermal detachment over wide body surface area begin to develop after this according to the case study:

Study: Fully Vaccinated Healthcare Workers Carry 251 Times Viral Load, Pose Threat to Unvaccinated Patients, Co-Workers
A groundbreaking preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, published Aug. 10 in The Lancet, includes alarming findings devastating to the COVID vaccine rollout.
The study found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.
While moderating the symptoms of infection, the jab allows vaccinated individuals to carry unusually high viral loads without becoming ill at first, potentially transforming them into presymptomatic superspreaders.
This phenomenon may be the source of the shocking post-vaccination surges in heavily vaccinated populations globally.

Pelosi and House ditch town as Biden deals with Afghanistan evacuation, Americans dead in Kabul explosions
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi barely addressed the crisis in Afghanistan this week as the House of Representatives met for a few days to move along some of the Democrats’ domestic legislative agenda, then closed up shop as terror threats grew.
With the Senate also out, President Biden left alone at the helm of the government to deal with threats to those trying to leave Afghanistan, including a terror attack Thursday at the Kabul airport.
There was also a firefight and Afghan casualties at the site of the attack outside the Abbey Gate, according to a US official. At least four U.S. Marines were killed, with at least three wounded.
Then Thursday two explosions rocked Kabul, including a second explosion near the Baron hotel, where U.S. Army helicopters previously evacuated Americans into the Kabul airport. The Pentagon said that the explosion at the Abbey Gate “resulted in a number of US & civilian casualties.”
Pelosi sent out a tweet just hours after the 12 service members were killed, saying “Join me live in San Francisco with Mayor London Breed, elected officials and community leaders to commemorate Women’s Equality Day,” and sharing a video of an event where she was present.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had pressed Pelosi to bring Congress back to session before Aug. 31, so that members can be briefed on the crisis in Afghanistan.
“Horrific. Our enemies have taken advantage of the chaotic nature of Biden’s withdrawal. Speaker Pelosi must bring Congress back before Aug 31 so we can be briefed thoroughly by the Administration and prohibit the withdrawal of our troops until every American is safely out,” McCarthy tweeted.
