SHOCK VIDEO: Chicago Man Points Gun DIRECTLY at Fox News Crew (Watch)

(Slay News) – Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot needs to resign immediately. For many reasons but mainly because she spent yesterday bickering with Texas Governor Gregg Abbott about community safety rather than addressing the rampant crime in Chicago.

And this morning while a local Fox 32 reporter named Joanie Lum was filming in the upscale River North area a hooded man appeared behind her and pointed a gun directly at the camera. (See video below)

Lum was doing a report on gun violence in Chicago when the gunman appeared to Lightfoot’s everlasting shame. This was not at 3 am or in a high crime part of town (true the entire city is now a high-crime area) but rather in an upscale part of town frequented by tourists.

Good Morning Chicago anchor Anita Padilla said Lum is okay but “shaken.”

“The gun was one foot from her head as he pointed at the camera or cameraman Gary. She is understandably shaken. Thank God she is okay,” Padilla said.

As for the worst mayor in a city known for bad one, Lori Lightfoot, she should be ashamed of herself.

Because this is how she spent yesterday:

“Gov Abbott, instead of coming after my city, take a moment to think about how YOU can stop this carnage. I work day and night to stop the violence.

“I see the suffering. Open your eyes. Lives are being lost. Be a part of the solution or get the hell out of the way.”

JUST IN: Elon Musk Breaks Silence On 2nd Amendment… Liberals TRIGGERED

(Slay News) – Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk broke his silence on the tragedy in Texas saying the media should not give these shooters what they want, attention.

Musk called for “tight” background checks and special permits for people who want assault rifles but reiterated that the right to bear arms is a safeguard against potential tyranny.

In an email to CNBC, Musk slammed the media for giving these murderers exactly what they crave, the fleeting attention of the masses. Musk wrote to CNBC:

“Regarding recent events, the shooters are obviously doing this to generate the most amount of attention possible.

“Why is the media doing exactly what the mass murderers want?

“I strongly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government.

“Historically, maintaining their power over the people is why those in power did not allow public ownership of guns,” he wrote.

Twitter shares were up early today after Musk upped the cahs portion of his bid for the social media platform.

From CNBC:

A new filing reveals that Elon Musk plans to front $33.5 billion in his bid to take over Twitter.

Musk is in talks with Twitter founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey and others to help finance, or roll their shares over, to complete the deal.

In a letter to investors backing the holding company that Musk is forming to take Twitter private, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO expressed his commitment to completing the deal.

Shares of Twitter rose more than 5% after hours on the news, while Tesla shares dipped about 1%.

As CNBC’s David Faber previously reported, Elon Musk is expected to serve as a temporary CEO of Twitter for a few months after he completes the $44 billion acquisition.

SHOCK VIDEO: Top Liberal Co-Hosts Issue Disgusting THREAT To Gun Owners

(Slay News) – The ladies on The View got emotional today talking about the tragedy in Texas but then Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg got political and killed the mood. Joy urged viewers to ‘stop voting Republican’ and Whoopi told certain gun owners to get ‘ready to give them up.’

“Why are we always at square one with this? And I swear to god if I hear another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken, I’m going to punch somebody. I can’t take any thoughts and prayers,” said Goldberg.

“If your thoughts and prayers were with everybody, you would have done something by now. It’s not like everybody’s not trying to make something happen. What the hell is going on?” (See videos below)

Co-host Joy Behar said Republicans are “gaslighting.” Behar said:

“I want them to stop gaslighting me also. Stop saying it’s not guns that kill people, it’s people that kill people.

“It’s guns that kill people, okay? Stop saying the opposite.

“Stop saying that mental illness is behind this.

“There’s mental illness in every country in the world, and they don’t have this problem.

“So stop gaslighting me on that one, and stop saying that you can have a good guy stop a bad guy with a gun.

Whoopi said:

“I want to thank Gov. Abbott because he signed 22 bills this year making it easier for mass shooters to buy, carry, and own guns in his state.

“Let’s apply his abortion laws to guns by deputizing citizens to sue anyone involved in gun violence!

“Let’s invoke some Supreme Court logic, too.

“Alito says abortion is not in the constitution?

“Well neither are AR-15s, so I guess the constitution doesn’t cover them, either.

“Life is so sacred? Then stop using guns to abort young lives.

Co-host Joy Behar chimed in saying, “Stop voting for republicans.”

But Goldberg disagreed saying, “No, don’t stop voting for republicans. But get better republicans in there.”

Whoopi continued:

“You’re going to get all in my business and tell me what my family can and cannot do, neither can you.

“They’re going to come for those AR-15s, and you better get ready to give them up.

“We are allowing things out there that kill children.

“And you didn’t do anything the last time.

“You’ve done nothing since Sandy Hook.

“Well, I think it’s time for the people to say, ‘We’re going to take this to the courts and we’re going to make you give these guns up because you don’t need to have them.’”

BREAKING: AOC DEVASTATED – She Never Saw This Coming

(Slay News) – Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) turned the tables on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) after the Democrat told Boebert to ‘quit’ Congress and let someone who ‘gives a damn do it instead.’

Boebert said after the Texas tragedy: “You cannot legislate away evil.” AOC was not happy and responded with:

“Why even be in Congress if you don’t believe in doing your job? Just quit and let someone who actually gives a damn do it instead of acting like a useless piece of furniture when babies are shot with AR15s that we let teen boys impulse buy before they can legally have a beer.”

Boebert responded with a challenge:

“Ms. Defund the Police, Gun Free Zones have proven to be deadly.

“Let me know when you’re ready to do your job and effectively protect our schools with armed security.

“Let’s meet and solve this.”

Boebert added:

“Nancy Pelosi had no problem bussing in 25,000 armed troops to protect her with AR-15s in an empty, locked down city.

“At a minimum, our schools can have certified armed teachers to protect our children from deranged maniacs who wish to do them harm.”

From NBC:

The man who opened fire in a Texas elementary school on Tuesday, massacring 19 children and two adults, was a loner who kept to himself and avoided any kind of conversation, according to the boyfriend of the gunman’s mother.

The shooter, identified by multiple law enforcement sources as Salvador Rolando Ramos, indiscriminately opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, about 80 miles from San Antonio.

He was killed by an off-duty agent with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Border Patrol Tactical Unit and two law enforcement officers, law enforcement sources said.

Juan Alvarez, 62, who has been in a relationship with Ramos’ mother for about a year and lives with her, said Ramos had a tumultuous relationship with his mother that often included fights.

Alvarez said Ramos left his mother’s home two months ago to live with his grandmother after he got into an intense argument with his mother after he disconnected the Wi-Fi.

VIDEO: Kellyanne Conway Totally SHUTS DOWN Entire Cast Of ‘The View’

(Slay News) – Kellyanne Conway went on The View to promote her new book, ‘Here’s the Deal,’ and shut down the hosts of the ABC show. Conway and former Trump official Alyssa Farah Griffin had a heated back and forth.

Griffin worked for Vice President Mike Pence and had other roles in Trump’s White House but is now part of a rotating cast of guest hosts for The View as they look for a permanent conservative co-host.

“I broke with the president ahead of Jan. 6 when the ‘big lie’ started being shared. I resigned in Dec. 4 and I spoke out after Jan. 6 when I saw a violent mob assault the Capitol.”

Conway fired back, “Is there a question in there?”

“Yes,” said Griffin. “How do you still defend him? Do you still think he could be a good president after he tried to overturn our democracy?”

“I left three months before you did, for my children, I have four of them. I said less drama more mama,” Conway said.

“And that’s exactly what I did. I think you stayed a whole month after the election that you were having a problem with.”

“I wanted to help my junior staff get jobs,” said Griffin. “I stayed for three weeks after…”

Conway shut her down:

“I think people should know that because I haven’t seen you since you changed. But I want to say this to you.”

Griffin interrupted, “Just to be clear, I didn’t change. I swore an oath to the Constitution.”

“I don’t want to argue,” said Conway. “You get to talk here every day.”

“I swore an oath to the Constitution, not to Donald Trump,” Griffin said.

“As we all did,” said Conway.

“Alyssa, if you’re saying that somehow you think we’re supposed to think that you’ve seen the light and not your name in lights that’s not fair,” said Conway to devastating effect.

“That’s such a cheap shot,” Griffin whined.

The crowd tried to boo Kellyanne at one point but Whoppi Goldberg stepped in and scolded them.

According to The Daily Beast:

“I write extensively in this book, that I’m the closest person to Donald Trump to tell him, the earliest, that he came up short. It broke my heart. I wanted him to get re-elected,” she exclaimed. “He should have won huge. He had all these accomplishments, he’s running against a guy stuck in the basement, and you’re in the middle of the pandemic.”

At this point, the studio audience began booing Conway, prompting host Whoopi Goldberg to jump in and chastise her own home crowd.

“Let me do something before you say anything else,” the show’s moderator declared. “Listen, this is The View, and this is her view and she’s talking about how she feels and what she knows, please don’t boo her!”

Conway, for her part, snarked that the crowd was likely booing her for saying President Joe Biden was “staying in the basement.”

BREAKING: Fox News CEO Declares WAR On Top Dem Senator

(Slay News) – Fox Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch told Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to g pound sand after Schumer tried to blame a recent shooting on Tucker Carlson.

Murdoch said: “I think when you’re in the news business, and you’re number one you get a lot of heat and it just comes with the territory. I think the world is more divided and on edge than it has been, you know, for a very long time.

“I think on the noise around it, so much of it is politicized. And so, you’ve got to be tough about it. Unfortunately, it comes with the territory. You’ve got to kind of realize what it is and how some of it is very organized kind of attacks — very coordinated — but it is what it is.”

Schumer wrote a letter to Fox News demanding ownership and executives stop what he says is the “reckless amplification of the so-called ‘Great Replacement’ theory.”

Chuck said:

“Proponents of this white nationalist, far-right conspiracy theory believe that a complicit or cooperative class of elites are advancing a plot designed to undermine the political power and culture of white Americans.

“For years, these types of beliefs have existed at the fringes of American life. However, this pernicious theory, which has no basis in fact, has been injected into the mainstream thanks in large part to a dangerous level of amplification by your network and its anchors.

“This should come as no surprise given the central role these themes have played in your network’s programming in recent years,” Chuck wrote.

“Politicians and media figures have an obligation to condemn such conspiratorial notions as white replacement theory.

“To this end, I implore you to immediately cease all dissemination of false white nationalist, far-right conspiracy theories on your network.”

From Axios:

Last week, protesters lined up in front of Fox Corporation’s New York City headquarters to protest Fox News primetime hosts in the wake of a Buffalo, New York, shooting.

A broad array of Democratic officials and progressive groups have criticized Fox News, saying its hosts have referenced the “great replacement theory,” a racist conspiracy theory that reportedly inspired the Buffalo shooter.

Murdoch pushed back against those attacks, noting that the shooter’s manifesto also targeted Fox Corp owner Rupert Murdoch for his support of Israel.

WATCH: Pelosi SNAPS… She NEVER Wanted This to Go Public

(Slay News) – Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) suffered a major blow after more Catholic bishops have come out in support of banning her from receiving Holy Communion over her “extreme” pro-abortion stance.

Several top bishops have voiced their support for Archbishop of San Francisco Salvatore Cordileone’s move to ban Pelosi from receiving Communion.

Michael Barber of the Diocese of Oakland said: “I support @ArchCardileone in the heroic and compassionate stance he took today in the protection and defense of human life.

“As @Pontifex said, ‘Every child who, rather than being born, is condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ.’”

Diocese of Santa Barbara Bishop Robert Vasa said that he spoke to the pastor of St. Helena Catholic Church in St.Helena, a parish that Pelosi reportedly attends on occasion.

Vasa said, “I have visited with the pastor at St Helena and informed him that if the Archbishop prohibited someone from receiving Holy Communion then that restriction followed the person and that the pastor was not free to ignore it.

“The new Canon (1379 §4) makes it clear that providing sacraments to someone prohibited from receiving them [has] its own possible penalties.”

Archdiocese in Denver: “I support and commend my brother bishop, Archbishop Cordileone, for making this courageous, compassionate, and necessary decision. Read my full statement:”

Diocese of Springfield: “I fully support and earnestly commend Archbishop Cordileone’s action in regard to Speaker Pelosi.

“All politicians who promote abortion should not receive holy Communion until they have repented, repaired scandal, and been reconciled to Christ and the Church.”

Archdiocese of Oklahoma City: “I applaud the courage of Archbishop Cordileone and his leadership in taking this difficult step. Let us continue to pray for Abp. Cordileone, priests of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, Speaker Pelosi, for the protection of the unborn, and for the conversion of hearts and minds.”

Diocese of Spokane: “After many attempts to engage Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a conversation about her support for abortion, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has announced that speaker Pelosi is to refrain from receiving holy communion until she answers the call to repentance.”

Cordileone wrote: “A Catholic legislator who supports procured abortion, after knowing the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of most serious scandal to others. Therefore, universal Church law provides that such persons ‘are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.’

“Should you not publicly repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’ or else refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion, I would have no choice but to make a declaration, in keeping with canon 915, that you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”

He says that since he wrote her the letter on April 7 and that she has not responded so she is banned.

He wrote:

After numerous attempts to speak with her to help her understand the grave evil she is perpetrating, the scandal she is causing, and the danger to her own soul she is risking, I have determined that the point has come in which I must make a public declaration that she is not to be admitted to Holy Communion.

Unless and until she publicly repudiates her support for abortion ‘rights’ and confess and receive absolution for her cooperation in this evil in the sacrament of Penance.

Therefore, in light of my responsibility as the Archbishop of San Francisco to be “concerned for all the Christian faithful entrusted to [my] care” (Code of Canon Law, can. 383, §1), by means of this communication I am hereby notifying you that you are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion, until such time as you publically repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance.

WATCH: Kayleigh McEnany Sounds ALARM About Joe Biden.. It’s BAD

(Slay News) – Kayleigh McEnany issued a warning about President Joe Biden’s continued gaffes that have to be cleaned up by anonymous White House officials. Kayleigh listed off the recent Biden blunders that had to be walked back by staff before calling the gaffes ‘alarming.’

McEnany said: “They’re disconcerting when it’s the president, but when it’s in the context of foreign policy, Harris, it takes on an entirely different set of alarm thinking that you could set off an enemy, a foe, a world power.

“In this case, with this Taiwan remark, who was it that cleaned it up? The White House official who declined to be named. In the case of suggesting regime change in Russia, who was it that cleaned it up?

“The official line was that within minutes a White House official was telling reporters it was not the case.

“It’s always an unnamed, anonymous White House official that cleans up the blunder.

“These gaffes are alarming. They’re weird to watch,” she said.

A White House official said:

“As the president said, our policy has not changed. He reiterated our One China Policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.

“He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.”

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said:

“China has no room for compromise or concessions on issues involving China’s core interests such as sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

“When it has to do with a realm of foreign policy and diplomacy, the stakes are so much higher than the average blunder he engages in,” Fox News’ Emily Compagno said.

“That’s the danger this has here, is if equal in kind, leaders respond in kind with President Biden’s comments. That’s what’s frightening.”

BREAKING: Officials Issue Immediate WARNING – MASS Power Blackouts Coming

(Slay News) – Tens are millions of Americans could be impacted by rolling power blackouts this summer, the leading energy regulator has warned.

According to Bloomberg, citing a new report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), a regulatory body that manages grid stability, warns that half of America could be impacted by megadroughts, heatwaves, and reduced power generation.

NERC says it is expecting widespread rolling electricity blackouts from the Great Lakes to the West Coast

Power supplies in the Western US are expected to be strained this summer as a historic drought reduces hydroelectric power generation due to falling reservoir levels.

However, there are other factors aside from what’s expected to be an unseasonably hot summer.

Power grids are also decommissioning fossil fuel power plants to fight climate change and their inability to bring on new green power generation, such as solar, wind, and batteries, in time.

Compound the hellacious weather backdrop with reduced power production and it is a perfect storm waiting to happen.

NERC predicts that the situation is going to produce electricity deficits that may force power companies into rolling blackouts for stability purposes.

The regulatory body pointed out that supply-chain woes are delaying major Southwest solar projects, while some coal plants have trouble procuring supplies because of increased exports.

They said there’s also an increasing threat of cyberattacks from Russia.

By region, the Midwest power grid will be extremely tight.

Across the Western US, power generation capacity has declined 2.3% since last summer, even as demand is expected to increase, according to Zerohedge.

Grids in the region may have to source power from neighboring grids as extreme heat will cause people to crank up their air conditioners.

A situation of low wind speeds could trigger blackouts, according to NERC.

They outlined how the Midwest could face power shortfalls due to the removal of power capacity from retiring fossil fuel power plants.

NERC issued a similar warning last year, stating power grids that serve 40% of the US population were at risk of blackouts.

One year later, there was only one notable blackout last June during a heatwave in the Pacific Northwest that left 9,000 customers without power.

But with reduced electricity generation capacity outpacing new green power sources, the risks of blackouts are increasing this year.

In Texas, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT)has already warned multiple times of grid stress as early summer-like heatwaves sent temperatures in certain parts of the state into triple-digit territory.

California’s grid operators have also warned of rising blackout threats –for the next three summers — as the state transitions to greener forms of energy.

The drought and shrinking reservoir levels have reduced hydroelectric power generation on top of decommissioned fossil fuel power plants.

“We know that reliability is going to be difficult in this time of transition,” said Alice Reynolds, president of the California Public Utilities Commission, during a May 6 press conference.

NERC’s report is an eye-opener for those living in the Western US. Many households face out-of-control inflation, soaring fuel prices, and food shortages ahead of what could be a summer of unrest as the Biden administration is bracing for a wave of violence upon the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe V. Wade.

America is slipping into the abyss as households get a taste of what it’s like to live in Venezuela.

It’s not that far off from what people are experiencing today: Soaring inflation, shortages, a ruling regime that so many claim was not elected by the majority, and soon, rolling blackouts.

WATCH: Rudy Giuliani Fires BACK At Demented Heckler (Video)

(Slay News) – The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York (JCRC) held its celebrate Israel parade for the first time in three years this weekend. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was on hand.

As he was walking the route he was heckled over crime rates in the city. Rudy famously cleaned up New York after Dem politicians did their best to ruin the place so he was not in the mood to hear it. He fired back at the guy reminding the ‘jackass’ that he was the one to get crime rates to drop.

Rudy called the guy ‘an asshole’ before making a crack at President Joe Biden’s mental capacity. Rudy says in the video below: “You are a jackass. You are a brainwashed asshole. You are probably as demented as Biden.”

The JCRC said when it announced this year’s parade:

“After three years away, the JCRC-NY Celebrate Israel Parade has returned! This year’s parade will take place on Sunday, May 22, 2022.

“We invite you to join us as we safely gather to march, cheer, and show our support for Israel. Together Again – Kulanu B’Yachad.

The JCRC-NY Celebrate Israel Parade is the world’s largest expression of solidarity with the Jewish state.

“Come join us and cheer on more than 40,000 marchers, dozens of fabulous floats, marching bands, and some exciting Jewish and Israeli musical performers!

“The parade proceeds up Fifth Avenue from 57th Street to 74th Street, displaying our passion for the State of Israel and our love for the global Jewish community.

“The 2022 Parade will also be broadcast locally on Fox TV’s My9 network and around the world via live webcast,” they said.

Rudy met recently with the Jan 6 Ciommittee but nothing has leaked so he probably told Liz Cheney to get lost.

From CNN:

Rudy Giuliani, former President Donald Trump’s onetime personal attorney and a lead architect of his attempt to overturn the 2020 election results, on Friday met with the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, insurrection, two sources told CNN.

Giuliani’s original deposition with the committee had been postponed after the former New York City mayor asked to record the interview, with both audio and video. At the time, Giuliani’s attorney Robert Costello said the committee rejected that request.

Despite Giuliani backing out of the original deposition, the two sides continued to negotiate an appearance, which led to a virtual appearance Friday that lasted for more than nine hours, sources said.
