Is Illinois Facing Collapse? Over 100 People Shot over 4th of July Weekend in Failing City of Chicago

Chicago Police

The state of Illinois and the city of Chicago has officially reached 3rd world war zone status. Over the Independence Day weekend, over 100 people were shot in the city of Chicago. Of the 102 people shot since Friday night, 14 have died.

The violence this year was largely confined to the South and West sides, with the citywide shooting totals clocking in at 326 people shot and killed to date, and another 1,537 shot and wounded since January 1st.

Just days before this latest explosion of violence, President Trump tweeted that he was ready to send federal help to Chicago to curb the violence.

The Entire State Of Illinois Is About To Collapse

On top of record levels of violence, the entire State of Illinois is facing financial ruin. Governor Bruce Warner is warning that the state is on the verge of “banana republic territory” because of how mismanaged the state has been over the last couple of decades.

The state has a $6 billion deficit and is responsible for a record backlog of unpaid debts totaling $14.7 billion, threatening to plunge the state into bankruptcy and putting it on track to become the first U.S. state to have its credit rating downgraded to “junk” status.

According to Fox News, Illinois also has $130 billion in unfunded pension obligations that nobody is really taking into account. The state’s finances are so bad that some are proposing that Illinois just be dissolved, with its land distributed to the surrounding states.

John Kass, a writer for the Chicago Tribune, wrote earlier in the week:

Dissolve Illinois. Decommission the state, tear up the charter, whatever the legal mumbo-jumbo, just end the whole dang thing.

We just disappear. With no pain. That’s right. You heard me.

The best thing to do is to break Illinois into pieces right now. Just wipe us off the map. Cut us out of America’s heartland and let neighboring states carve us up and take the best chunks for themselves.

    When they split the state up I hope Loves Park and everything north of Loves Park go to Wisconsin and Rockford goes to where ever Chicago goes. They have so much in common.

    Omgosh….just another example of government failing miserably. Wisconsin isn’t doing all that great either. Haven’t even set a budget yet. That would be a great start and then follow it!

    What Trump should do to help is send in the military. WIPE out all of the gangs with brute military force and show that gangland violence and activity will NOT be tolerated in any form.

    I’m going to be blunt here. Most of the violence is black on black! It is what it is! There is no workable solution except for possibly government intervention from the Feds. The gangs and gangbangers need to be destroyed with maximum prejudice with something like the Phoenix Program we employed in South Vietnam. “Terminate with extreme Prejudice!” Fight fire with fire. If the “responsible black leaders can’t control their people, then lock and load and yet it rip.

    What happened to Rob Emanuel? He was advising a U.S. President but can’t run one little bitty State? I don’t believe he couldn’t, I believe he wouldn’t.

    This is exactly what the (((Zio globalists))) plan to do to all of our Country. They have said it, and I believe them.

    The U.S. Citizen must save America from the enemies who have infiltrated our Universities, publishing houses, movie theaters, military, Senate and House of Representatives, Governor’s mansions, etc.

    Two per cent controlling the ninety eight per cent.

    Chances are, Illinoise taxes have built some mighty fine bug out bunkers, or paid ISIS.

    If they start teaching history in our schools again everyone will realize that this is exactly what happened to the Roman Empire. They were not defeated by any army but by buying off the citizens until the money run out . This is exactly what is going on all over this country. It’s call buying votes . Chicago has ruined the entire state with their PC garbage and handouts. Whenever this country has experience a problem with no answer it seems like a war breaks out. Take a look around !
