Government Planning to Evacuate Chicago

Blackhawk HelicoptersA couple of weeks ago we reported on the Urban Warfare training that was going on in Downtown Chicago. Now there are growing fears that those drills were in preparation for major problems during next months NATO Summit. A leaked email, from the Milwaukee Red Cross, is warning  that government officials are actually planning to evacuate Chicago in the event of trouble.

As unlikely as it may sound, CBS 2 News in Chicago is reporting that government officials, in the Secret Services and the Department of Homeland Security, are secretly planning for the possibility of having to evacuate Chicago.

CBS 2 News has obtained a copy of an e-mail sent to volunteers from the Milwaukee area branch of the American Red Cross.

The email warns volunteers that the NATO summit “may create unrest or another national security incident. The American Red Cross in southeastern Wisconsin has been asked to place a number of shelters on standby in the event of evacuation of Chicago.”

The Red Cross claims that the directive came directly from the “City of Chicago and the Secret Service.”


Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications called last weeks urban warfare drills a  “routine training exercise”, but with this new information coming out of the Milwaukee area branch of the American Red Cross, you really have to wonder what’s going on in Chicago. Were last weeks drills really “routine”, or was it part of a larger plan that includes the evacuation of Chicago?

Chicago was already on edge after news broke earlier this week that a number of residents had been asked to leave their condos in preparation for major rioting.

A number of local residents received letters that read:

“We are STRONGLY recommending that all residents find places to stay during the conference from May 18 through May 21.”

“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.”

As we draw closer to the NATO summit in Chicago, a number of prominent government officials are also starting to warn people to get out of Chicago. Alderman Bob Fioretti, whose district will be most affected by security efforts, was warning residents to leave town during the summit.  He told local reporters “I’ve been advising people, if they can afford it, leave town.”

What should you do?

Having an emergency evacuation plan is critical in any situation.  If things go bad during the summit, the last thing you want is to be caught off guard. If I lived in Chicago, I would immediately start planning for the worst case scenario. (it’s better to be safe than sorry)

  • If you can, leave ahead of time. Why take the chance of being caught up in something that could quickly turn into a life threatening situation.
  • If you do stay, you need to have a plan of action. Keep in mind that during a disaster most of the major highways are going to be completely clogged with people trying to get out. Plan now, and map out as many escape routes as possible.
  • Be aware that riots can spark off in an instant. Make sure to have plan of action in case you find yourself in the middle of a full blown riot.
  • Put together an emergency bug out bag – A Bug out bag is basically a large survival kit filled with everything you need to survive.  The government often recommends that you need at least 72 hours worth of supplies on hand at all times.  Since most major disasters usually last longer than 72 hours, we think it’s a good idea to pack your bag for an indefinite period of time.

          Chad, I think you just have a chip on your shoulder. Sensible people from all over the country can see the corruption and hardships that Chicago is having to deal with, and the rest of us just don’t want to be shouldered with the burden of having to deal with the consequences of a catastrophe that could have been avoided in the first place. It’s not that we’re divided; it’s not that we hate our fellow citizens. You apparently are convinced that everyone is out to get you, but we’re not. Justiceman was out of line for saying “who cares” (we do care) and Candy was out of line for wishing Obama and his supporters (or anyone else from Chicago) to go to Hell (because it’s going to be awful for anyone who ends up going there), but she did have a point about all the people who were dumped into Texas after Katrina…most of those people haven’t even tried to go back to New Orleans, and many of the ones who stayed are just living off of hard-working tax payers like you and me. Not everyone who is NOT enamored with the city of Chicago hates you…They might hate the circumstances, and the fact that that kind of stuff goes on there, but they most likely don’t hate you (or even know who you, period). That just isn’t true, so PLEASE stop trying to make that case. We just don’t want to be forced to deal with Chicago’s problems on top of the ones we ALREADY have, and I hardly think that mindset classifies me as a hate-filled zombie. People who dislike the economic and political circumstances that are constantly perpetuated in Chicago have nothing against you personally, and I think I speak for most in saying that we wish the best for you and the rest of the upstanding citizens of Chicago, so I just wish you would chill your roll a little bit and open your eyes to understand what people are talking about.

            You’re talking about people being sectioned off by their state, that some how invisible lines make us separate or different. You’re talking about the people of Chicago, me, as if we were born from the corruption in our city. That’s just not true, Chicago is not a hive of tax embezzling Queens, and we are not their worker bees. The people that would be displaced, if there ever had to be an evacuation, I can assure you are not the people you’re basing your opinions off of. Just stating that you don’t hate, or feel a way about a group of people, and then saying hateful statements does not cancel each other out. There is something wrong here that as soon as there is a threat of other people, whether they be fellow Americans, or really anybody displaced, we instantly think of our happiness, family, our friends and ourselves. This is not the way evolved beings work, clinging on to the familiar and press back, blowing away, the ideas, people, places that don’t fit your own or who ever you follow, idea of goodness, is not humane, it’s what animals do. Humans have evolved a frontal lobe, humans can see the future, and the past, and then determine the most beneficial outcome. People have compassion, sympathy, knowledge, and logic. Boldly stating that, the people of one city are not good enough to be helped because you don’t like the politics, is not utilizing any evolved and/or higher thinking, just the gut instincts of our ancestors. Yes OUR ancestors, as much as anyone dislikes it, we are all one, human race. I’d tell you, don’t hate, use your brain, but that would imply the capacity for thought, which I don’t believe you’ve come to yet, but maybe one day. “I just wish you would chill your roll a little bit and open your eyes to understand what people are talking about.”

            Wow… looks like we’ve just spotted a huge problem with the people of this nation: “We just don’t want to be shouldered with the burden”… of taking care of your fellow man, who’s in pain, suffered tragedy, lost homes and families? IMHO, there is nothing more noble than helping out those who have ALSO been f$#^d by our own government. Every man for himself is the death of us. God forbid you should help someone else out… I undersatnd that might cut into your bottled-water budget or even that you might not be able to take that luxury vacay this year. I understand though, it’s a tough decision… helping a hurting human or going to Fiji… it’s a toss up. Jerks.

            Ty, I agree with most of what you said. But, I don’t think anyone deserves this. Not even Chicago. yes, Chicago has had it’s many issues. It’s after all the Communist capital of the USA. But folks think about this… Obummer has created over 72 fema camps. Why? Anyone wonder this? This is the tip of the iceberg I’m telling ya. There is more than just Chicago that is being evacuated. They have many states on “stand by” for evacuation as well. Of course this is all hush hush. I have family in military. I was also told the water, is being ummmm poisoned. Call me crazy, fear driven what ever you want. I pray it’s not true. But, when you’ve seen the things I’ve seen in my job alone nothing surprises me anymore. Nothing. Riots will break out. That’s a given.

There are many corrupt people all over the world, not just chicago. And even still how many are those out of the the millions. These types of responses are sad. We should all be able with open arms to help anyone in need, especially in times of crises.

            As a native Houstonian I saw the crime rate explode when they evacuated New Orleans here! Yes there are good people in NO and Chicago, but when the evacuation is over they go home, the teet suckers and gangsters don’t care where they are as long as they get their check or have crime to commit. But I’d personally love to see a Chicago gangbanger come down and try to mug someone in Texas and get a gun pulled on them! Welcome to Texas have a hot lead sammich on the house!

            C’mon you’re all playing into the hands of a Government that is out to cause a division between us. I’m from Chicago and due to Ovomit I’m ashamed to say it sometimes. The Chicago Politics is corrupt and the politicians are all corruptible. I have many good friends still living there and would like to see this thing blow over if for no other reason than to disappoint our President and his plans for a dry run to shut down every City in the United States. I know you are all computer savvy and have read most of the Nazi History and should be able to see what the post American world will look like. There is only one reason why this NATO Summit was set in Chicago. That’s because the Administration is trying to recreate another ’68 Democratic Conventions disaster. If the White House can precipitate the violence there may not even be an election in November. With some of the comments in these replies, I’m sure the White house is wringing their hands in delight. See this for what it is and Vote in November. At least vote for the lesser of two evils even if it’s Romney. If Chicago people were relocated to Texas, be assured they would not be the same dog asses that stuck around for the Hurricane Party so they could loot after the storm. They will still be in Chicago. In New Orleans they were fooled and all they could do then was rape and kill each other. I would like to see every true American stand up for themselves and each other. That’s not to say there is no free loading no-load taking advantage of the free s#1t. These people have to understand that just like in New Orleans City Administration; this Administration will have no use for them after the election. They will be the first ones to go under the bus. We should stand together and support each other as true Americans.

        • Chad, you obviously haven’t been to Shitcago.

          Certainly there are *SOME* but the majority are either crooked politicians, welfare teet suckers or ganstas.

          While I would really love to see the place swallowed up into a black hole, you are correct. There may be a FEW people that are good and decent. Shitcago and most other city of that size is a blight upon the earth. At the same time liberals scream about this and that, they also turn to the big cities for votes. Oh, wait! Another reason to pull the tick from out neck: socioliberalbigovermentism. It will be the death of America.

            I used to think the same, until I spent time in Chicago and realized that the enormous amount of organizational work being done here makes it possible for the hard working farmers and plant workers in small rural communities to sell their goods all over the US and world. small towns have their proportion of lazy subsidized bums too. The 80/20 rule is everywhere. There are takers and doers. Cities are necessary to civilization unless you want to live a tribal lifestyle.

            Ranger, it’s the opposite. Chicago is mostly good people, hard working and contributing. Then there are the ghettos where the majority of the murders are committed, and where most of the criminals come from. It is, however, the most politically corrupt city in the country. It’s been run for decades by democrats, stealing money for their friends and raising taxes to pay for the dependent class to keep them voting democrat.

            Also, in your grammatically challenged message, “city” should have been pluralized in the following sentence: “Shitcago and most other city of that size”

            It’s nice to see how all of that fine, Indiana public schooling has done you well!

            You were right about one thing, though… you do have a warped viewpoint. But what else can you expect when dealing with a white trash, possibly inebriated, inbred idiot from Indiana? (Alliteration is super fun! Do you know what that is? Did you even graduate form High School?)

There are millions of people at risk and concerned for their well-being. Just because there are things that go on here that you dont agree with doesnt mean that there arent plenty of people here who are working and trying to make a living just like yourself, that have NOTHING to do with the things you dont like about the city. It’s really sad to see people like you so self-centered and sad.

          Mr. Kennedy,
          I’m sorry if you ever had a bad experience in Texas. I’m sure there is racism somewhere down here; I’m not denying that racism exists, but I have never seen anyone denied anything down here on account of race. Many towns here in Texas are primarily hispanic, and when it comes to college financial aid, middle-class white kids “qualify” far less often than any sort of minority, so that would make them the ones being discriminated against on account of race. I like where I live in Texas. We do a lot for the country (like a whoooole lot economically), and most of us are pretty good people if you get to know us, so please don’t wish that I (and the rest of my friends and family and acquaintances and fellow Texans) should be nuked… That’s just not very nice, and you never know, you might need one of us to save your bacon some day.

            The financial aid formula created by congress doesn’t account for race. It’s the same accross the board. You’re obviously ignorant of it. It’s strictly based on tax information. So maybe the supposed ‘middle class white’ kids you’re talking about aren’t so middle class because it’s very easy to qualify for financial aid. I am a middle class white kid, and I made $30,000 in income last year and I still qualify for grants that pay for the entirety of my public-based education. That’s free money. So, why don’t you rethink your baseless conclusions.

        Seriously?!? Pls. next time you have a thought, forget it. There are millions of really good people here in Chicago who don’t need NATO, the accompanying protests or the fascist gov’t clampdown that comes with it. For those of us who live in the neighborhoods from Rogers Park to Morgan Park and from Lincoln Park to W. Garfield Park, we have to deal with the fallout from this Neo-Con clusterfuck of imperial over-reach.
        Also, anyone who points to the problems we have as ANYthing to do with Obama is so seriously deluded they should be hospitalized. BHO has continued the exact same fucking policies that GWB, Clinton, GHWB, and Reagan had in place.

          Obama and his minions, Rahm Emmanuel, are using the protesters for the political gain of the Democrat party. They are inciting racism and are doing all they can to foment violent rioting.
          Those helicopters, etc. may not be to keep the crowds under control, but to declare martial law. They can use the excuse that Chicago is the DNC headquarters and must be “kept safe”. Our safety is not Obama’s concern.

You’re an embarrassment to not only Texas but the United States of America and everything it/we stand for. You’re prejudice in every manner of the word and should be politely asked to leave Texas and the USA!

        Sad to see how some ignorant people comment here..,
        WE Chicagoans have gone to NY after 9/11, went No, TX, and OK after their disasters, and you say this about Chicagoans?
        Also, WE here in Chicago, aren’t like those in your area, that tuck tail and run, nor are we like the LA cops who abandoned their people during riots.
        to those who wish us well, God Bless you, we appreciate your support.
        We are the ones living here.., we know our politicians are corrupt, and we have to survive regardless, and we do!
        We are prepared, ready to protect OUR city, and No one, I repeat, No one is evacuating Chicago.
        If the protesters think they are going to take over our city.., they got another thing comin’!
        There will be skulls cracked open and it won’t only come from the Police defending themselves against these Hippie wannabes, it will be from the rest of us who will defend our city.
        So piss off and we’ll remember you sentiments Candy!

I have worked too hard to get where I am in this city, just like the the other few million citizens here who have done the same. We know who we are. We know what we stand for. I’m chicago born and raised. I love my city. I love the ppl in my city. I love my country. I love the ppl in my country. and its extremely sad to think that ppl in other parts of America, who (i’m sure) work just as hard, could care less about ppl elsewhere. I was in ny after 9/11. I was in new orleans after katrina. I’ll go help in gary, indiana if they need it. I’ll go help in texas if they need it. Even if i do have to deal with a few racist, uneducated pricks who dont have the brains nor the heart to understand whats important. And if i gotta.. I’ll be crackin skulls right next to you.

          I can assure you we are armed here in Chicago, and unlike gang bangers.., WE know how to use them!
          I don’t know how it all went down in NO with the Fed’s coming in and taking citizens weapons, but I can assure you.., it won’t happen here!
          Don’t know why those did give them up?
          Once it was known what they were doing should of been all the preparedness one needs to unify and their stance against it.
          The Gov’t intimidates for response.
          When one intimidates the Gov’t back in numbers.., it checks itself.
          There will be NO martial law here friends..,and the Mayor, Alderman, and anyone else who has made similar comments about evacuation has already raised their voice over this, and has shouted them down for it.
          The only people leaving Chicago are the wealthy who would run anyway.
          The common man is staying put, and laughing at how you all think the protesters are going to reek havoc, when we know that love them or leave them, OUR Police Department is made of better stuff than that, and will handle their business, and we citizens will handle OURS!

And I actually got a responce. And the bill passed that the government would not come take our guns. Of course that probably wouldn’t stop the federal government from trying it but according to Indiana law they would be in violation of that law. And SHOULD NOT get any support from Indiana law enforcement. I seen the videos and read all the storys from NO about that and they’re NOT taking my guns!

    Two things to remember when evacuating Chicago. Electric sliding gates have been installed on the main highway going North/Northwest out of city. This will block the blue collar areas ability to entrance the highway to get out of Chicago before the downtown area/CME/lawyers + politicians leave. This was done 10 years ago. Look for sliding gates at Diversey Ave, Belmont, Irving Park Ave. etc.

    Second, Chicago has bragged about having the technology to block off areas affected so that phone, cell, etc. access is denied to keep the lines and towers from becoming overloaded as well as block off what really happened there. This may also include the ability to take photos, etc.

    If Chicago is going to protest then they should at least do it by either full city work stoppage or silent seated protest. Otherwise accept the crap the government is trying dump in your collective lap.
    A violent protest will have citizens on house arrest and in cells or dead in nanoseconds. Which is exactly what Obama wants. That way the politicians can manipulate the elections and misappropriate tax dollars to war efforts by yammering about riots.

    This could all be over really quickly if American adults would stop acting like cowards. Stop moving to escape social problems, stop trying to ship people away that you don’t like, stop incarcerating what scares you, and stop making excuses. This nation is corrupt and every citizen in it is either passively or actively allowing it to continue.

    Martial law is the imposition of military rule by military authorities over designated regions on an emergency basis—(usually) only temporary—when the civilian government or civilian authorities fail to function effectively (e.g., maintain order and security, and provide essential services), when there are extensive riots and protests, or when the disobedience of the law becomes widespread.

If they even have to think about something like this, then I have a question. Why in Hell would they be planning this summit in the first place, and why would the city government tolerate it?

    Oh, one more question. Why in Hell is NATO still around in the first place, when the USSR closed up shop over 20 years ago? I actually know the answer, but does anybody else?

          I think it’s a bit rash to declare someone “ignorant” for making an observation. The presence of incorruption, or “hard working AMERICANS raising their families and paying their taxes” does not negate the presence of incorruption. Ryan obviously wasn’t talking about you, or Chad for that matter, so be proud of NOT being part of the “scum and villainy,” continue to fight the good fight, and don’t go spitting venom at someone who’s not talking about you.

            The name calling humorously annoying, but not a big deal. I do get it. You obviously don’t. Ryan didn’t say “everyone that lives in Chicago is scum and a villain.” Read it again. He just mentioned that Chicago itself is a “wretched hive of scum and villainy,” meaning it is a LOCATION where those sorts of things take place. He didn’t condemn every individual person from Chicago; he just made the observation that if you wanted to find villainy and scum, Chicago would be a reasonable PLACE in general to find those things. Now do you get it? It gets old when people are constantly looking for something to which they can take offense.

I also heard the Alderman warning people to get out on the radio, and I saw the choppers fly by my office windows last week. So everything in this report is very true and DHS is everywhere in Chicago right now.

I work downtown on Michigan Avenue and our building sent out a release suggesting that folks plan to either work from home during the NATO summit or plan to have a hotel nearby to spend the night in if needed.

    IMO, it’s all just a boatload of ass-covering going on by both the government and the private sector so people can’t say “I told ya so” IF anything big happens (which I doubt will)…

      Actually, you CAN legally own both long guns and handguns in Chicago now since the city’s ban on handguns was overturned in 2010. Yes, there’s no concealed carry, but if the crazy hypothetical end-of-the-world “Red Dawn” revolutionary scenarios some folks think are gonna occur actually happen then who cares about concealed carry?

      Also, there are tons of illegal weapons in the city of Chicago.

      April 29, 2012 at 10:21 am

      Dude.., stop reading about Chicago and come here!
      The bad guys are NOT the only ones with guns.
      Eric is correct.., and believe me, we citizens get over on the bad guy too!
      Just had a 80+ year old guy dust off a punk who was trying to rob him.
      Lit him up like a Christmas tree!
      Most of us are fully prepared for many things, and as this Nato summit grows near, we are fully prepared.
      No one will be coming to our doors for our guns.
      Only the cowards and ignorant will “Evacuate” Chicago.

      Respectfully, this title is incorrect, since they weren’t talking about evacuating the entire city, but folks that live in and around the “Red zone”, since it will be on lock down if anything does happen.
      Believe me.., the protesters that peacefully protest will be respected, our cops proved that when Occupy was here.., they’re (occupy) admission!
      But if “others” decide, as some did back in 68′, that they want to use this opportunity to create chaos, violence, and any other illegal activity to provoke a riot.., we’ll be ready for them, and then if you are caught up in it, shame on you!
      When I’m out with my family, I am ALWAYS armed in one capacity or other.
      It won’t be exposed to arguments, disagreements, or road rage.., just as a last resort to stopping a threat of great bodily harm/threat of death to my family, innocent citizens, or myself.
      Then it’s your ass!
      Otherwise.., come to Chicago, good people, great restaurants/bars, and solid upstanding people who come to the aid of their fellow man, no matter where they are from, (even Green Bay, *LOL ),
      and WE don’t run from anyone.

    This whole thing could be a setup to legitimize foreign troops on US soil.

    Ponder this scenario for a moment, a few NATO foreign representatives are badly hurt following a false-flag blamed on “domestic terrorists” via a low-yield nuclear device supplied to them by “Iran”. Affected NATO member nations demand “justice” for this “atrocity” and Obama “regretfully” concedes to letting those particular nations conduct “limited” military activities on US soil to bring the perpetrators of the crime to justice – they’d probably give it some fancy, non-confrontational name as to not frighten the ‘sleepwalkers’ too much.

    Obama declaring “Marshal Law” would still keep the country under US jurisdiction (albeit, a military one), but this scenario would have the Marshal Law under foreign jurisdiction – think of it as ‘Foreign Marshal Law’.

    We all known that the desired One World Government has to bring all the world underneath a singular financial, military, and environmental umbrella, so this could be a way to finally subvert the US’s sovereign nation status via an armed foreign troop invasion that would actually be sanctioned by the US government.

    Naturally, the foreign troops presence in this country would be anything but “limited”, because the “terrorists” can never be found (because they don’t exist); which would lead to the accusations of “aiding and abiding” from the foreign nations that would lead to Obama conceding even more power by turning all federal agencies and local police agencies over to foreign jurisdiction.

    The US military would be useless in this scenario since resources and personal are exhausted and spread all over the planet. There will be no one ‘home’ to stop this invasion from within. Perhaps this has been the true purpose of all these wars; to exhaust the US military to near uselessness.

    Oh yes my friends. Things are starting to get very hairy indeed. Positivity is being backed into a corner more and more each and every day – so much so that many are conceding defeat and losing hope. But, positivity IS NOT defenseless; just very, very patient. There is a ‘monkey wrench’ waiting to be thrown into the plans of the corrupt and wicked (if it hasn’t been already), and this game is going to get a whole lot more interesting in the coming months; and depending on which side of the spectrum one resides, that could be a good thing, or a very bad and painful thing.

    Choose wisely.

        …and if that is all you gleaned from what I typed, I believe you need to get your priorities straight. ‘Creditability’ wasn’t not my objective here. Just giving some food for thought, which you would have understood if you had bothered to comprehend what I was trying to say rather than stewing over diction errors.

        A little English comprehension lesson for you. My point wasn’t about “Martial Law”, it was about a foreign military invasion and treason. I only used the term ‘Marshal Law’ to give a limited example of what to expect, so in this respect my misuse of the word ‘Marshal’ would have been overlooked by a more reasonable human being. Which you apparently are not.

        Anyway, good day to you sir. And please continue on your never ending quest of COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT.

Oh ya , here comes the next false flag, martial law, oh whats next RFID for all Chicago citizens? Trust me Im just as every bit patriotic as G. Washington himself. And I wouldn’t put anything past this Gov, so I prepared. But when you get on these type of sites and see the fear mongering by the comments, how can anyone take this seriously? I’ve been hearing about martial law since the first Bush was in office. Oh ya Clinton was going to declare martial law to suspend the elections so they can infiltrate the neighborhoods and take away our guns. I know , I know now Im a sheep and not awake, sorry just isnt true. im very awake and prepared for the worst. Im currently active in my community and state educating people on their Constitutional rights and how executive orders (which pertain solely to military) are going to affect them, and how to legally fight them in court.

    I’ll be in Chicago during the summit. As a protester. I’m one of those “crazy radicals” that everyone seems to be so worried about, and I’m not entirely sure why. I really, really doubt anything major is going to happen. There will be yelling, signs, and flags. I’m sure the cops will gas some people. I’m guessing there’s going to be some level of property damage (a la broken windows and spray paint) since that always seems to happen at summits like this. If there is violence, though, it will NOT be the protesters that initiate it. I’m going to be “armed” with a bottle of water, cell phone, and maybe a sign. The police are armed with billy clubs, tazers, guns, pepper spray, tear gas, LRADs, etc. and have shields, helmets, gas masks, and other assorted armor. I have the backing of probably 2 or 3 friends. Chicago Police have the backing of DHS, FBI, and other PD’s. I’m not going to be doing anything illegal, even though I strongly disagree with so many of the protest/parade statues that Rahm has changed recently. Yet it’s ME and people like me that everyone is freaking out about, *not* the police state? I don’t get it.
    Also, it’s martial law, not marshall law. Y’all just make yourselves look a little crazier and more paranoid than usual when you don’t know how to spell it. Just an idea..

      @ana.., If you protest peacefully, you’ll have little worry.
      But you can’t be that naive to think that since you have no ill will that there won’t be those that do on your side.
      The Cops are not part of the 1% you protest about.
      They have a job to do, it’s not THEIR laws they are enforcing, it’s the politicians. Remember that when you and the others are threatening them, screaming in their face as they stand there, trying to protect lives and property.
      They have families too!
      Aren’t they afforded any rights to be safe?
      Some of you people should do a ride a long in a big city, and especially when their is protesting and rioting going on, then tell me how you view things?
      Not all cops are good, just as not all citizens are.., but I give them the benefit until they give me reason not to.
      When it comes to protesting, I side with the cops, all the way!
      You all hide behind the “big bad wolf theory”, when you know full well that if ANY violence, property damage, or instigation happens, it’s not by Law Enforcement.
      Be safe, be honest with your views on things, and open your eyes to the World as a whole, so you can see past some of the “goofs” in your ranks that will lead you down the wrong road.

    This world is getting worse and worse. The end times like the bible talks about is happening now. Obama is the cause of many issues in this world. First off he’s not a U.S.citizen, and that has been proven by the Atlanta Georgia Court. Obama was suppose to show but never did so Court went on without him. The only reason why he was not been impeachedis bc our government and everyone in office is so money hungry, they don’t care about the citizens of the U.S. Obama has signed some new law saying that he has all control over all food resources, water supply, major farms, electricity, etc.. Then people were sent to certain small farms killing there livestock and they will keep going until there are no small farms that way Obama has full control… Obama refuses to say the pledge of allegiance right. The Government is even planning on decreasing the earth’s population. Something bad is about to happen to the U.S. If you don’t believe any of this look it up and do research bc it is real. The mark of the beast the Bible talks about is happening now, they are just not forcing you to take it yet, it’s by choice, but soon they will force it and God says we can not take it. There have been airplanes flying in certain areas spraying chemicals in the sky. They say it’s to control the climate but do really really know what it is. Can we really trust them.

I wish all the good people of Chicago safety and health through all of this. It could be in any of our cities and I would wish their residents the same.

We are all humans, please wake up brothers and sisters. We are not each other’s enemies… the corrupt warmongering profiteering fascists are the problem. Unite and conquer them. Realize we are all one! Don’t fall for their attempts to weaken us by pointing out differences. Unite and be strong!

    Sadly just like with Katrina, most people will ignore any and all warnings to prepare for the worst ahead of time. Of course if there is a problem, they will expect the government to jump in a instantly supply their every need. If this was scheduled closer to the election one would wonder if it was going to turn into Owebama’s excuse to declare martial law.

    Unity is the only way. Trolls will starve to death in their self centered hateful little worlds, so just let them die. The rest of the awakened masses who are ready to transform our reality through our next leap in evolution will become the truest forms of freedom teachers in the future. Prepare for our rebirth. The time is drawing near.

  50. These comments are a disgrace. Absolutely FULL of FAIL.

    What I can’t figure out, is why the Chicago city officials are going along with this. Given the threat of mass evacuation of voters, friends, & families, and the claimed potential for rioting, why don’t they just say no – go hold your conference somewhere else? The risk to the city’s economic well-being is immense, and the potential benefit is negligible. The threat to the population is huge. Chicago officials COULD say NO – but, apparently they’re not doing that. It stumps me. WHY? World or national brownie points have no significant value for Chicago’s economic advantage. Whoever’s in office now will be voted OUT, at election time as payback for letting this happen – guaranteed. What could they possibly think they’re gaining by allowing the conference to occur there? If they’re smart (which, obviously they’re not), they’ll serve notice to NATO & associates in a VERY public way, that the conference is NOT welcome in the windy city.

      where did obama come from–chicago,,who is your mayor,who is one of obamma right hand man valerie jarett money money money

  55. It is fitting that NATO; that global thug, operating, NOT on behalf of the “free world” but for the corporate Mafia monsters that are pillaging and raping a planet, should be meeting in the heartland of criminal notoriety, “CHICAGO.” It is also appropriate that OBAMA now head of that Washington ruling political Mafia served his time there.

    Word on the vine is.., this (possible threat), has little to do with protesters, as much as it has to do with anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death.
    If there is a terrorist strike, we’ll be ready for that too.

    I can’t believe all the crap comments about Chicago, Obama, or other right wing nut-job remarks. Isn’t the important thing here the actual news of a possible evacuation of a major city ? Get a grip !! Chicago as well as several major cities in the U.S. are all popular locations for large meetings, conventions, and such. Would it matter any more or less if it was New York, Las Vegas, Dallas/Fort Worth, or another popular locale. All these cities rely on these kinds of meetings as part of the economy. The McCormick Place in Chicago is no different. I am sure the economic and cultural benefits of having these meetings is very wide reaching, and surely include the lively-hood of many honest hard working citizens. Quit all the hate, and look at the story itself…

    Hey everybody please take a huge step back. What is happening here? Why are these evacuations and the NATO summit getting such huge media coverage?
    This is all being done as a huge psy-op to get the people thinking that NATO protesters are going to ravage the city and start a huge riot, and that everybody should be really scared. This is a huge psy-op to prepare us for eventual martial law. Think about it – how many of us would even know there is a NATO summit at all if the media didn’t constantly talk about it? Without the media’s involvement, it would have been no big deal.
    Secondly, this is a psy-op to get you so scared of the rioting, evacuations, and helicopters that you won’t even begin to think of what people may actually be protesting!!! Here’s the link of why people need to protest NATO and the New World Order that the powers-that-be constantly talk about:

    For anyone that is really curious about what to expect, go to utube and do a search on past NATO summits. The one in Canada was particuarly disturbing.

    This whole scenerio is playing out like the Gladiators in an arena – all for the entertainment of a sick group of elitists. Why else would Chicago be chosen? Sacrificial collatoral damage. If NATO insists on meeting, they need to go to a private island. Better yet, just disban completely.

    The only people who plan violence is OWS/SOROS/OTPOR/CIA imported revolution…

    It’s a false flag so there will be a excuse to create martial law.

    If Chicago citizens banded together and just got rid of the fascist Emanuel and the other totalitarian imperialists in NATO once they arrive, the whole world would be a lot more peaceful. There would be no plans to “evacuate” since none of the warlords would be using the city to stage more of their war crimes, to plan further attacks against the citizens of the world. NATO leaders should learn the hard way that their unforgivable crimes against humanity make them fair game for retribution in America. NATO: wanted – dead, as soon as possible.

    Government hard at work causing terror in its people. Got to love this country. Instead of protecting our country from this happening in the first place, our military is spread all over the world worrying about getting its nose involved in other country’s affairs. How can the American people expect government to protect its people if there is no one here to protect? Keep your guns my friends, you will soon need them. Slowly that right to have a fire arm will be taken from you as well.

    See what happens when you give up your guns? Now the government can do as they please to you. I believe that many homes will be raided while you’re out. You all gave away all of your rights and now are going to pay very dearly for it.Prepare to be rounded up and hauled off to a FEMA INTERNMENT CAMP…?

    You people are all way too paranoid and looking into this way too much. The G20 was in Toronto recently and fuck all happened, except a few riots. Three people were arrested in the end. Unless your country is that much more fucked up than ours, there is literally nothing anybody has to be worred about. Also stop bitching ateach other its riduculous. who gives a shit which part of the country you live in. Are you all American or all forms of nationalities that that reside in different states thatjustwant to kill each other?

    Chicago is a disgrace to us who live in central Illinois. Due to the fact that they continue to elect corrupt democraps we have to suffer down here. It’s the only placed in the country where they can have a protest outside a gun store cause a honest business to loose money the corrupt cops do nothing to stop it and the local idiot newscast act as if they are doing a great thing. And they wonder why they and not welcome in central southern and western Illinois. So keep vacationing in Wisconsin we like are guns better than you northern city trash.
