Blog note: Jesus indicated that one (of many) signs of the end times or the end of the age grace would be that love for one another would grow cold. Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” This can also be interpreted that lawlessness will abound. This includes violence, murder, terrorism, mass shootings, mass knife attacks, car/van attacks, chemical attacks and other similar acts of destructive and evil behavior. Yes, these things have occurred in time past. But consider the frequency, intensity and devastation of these types of attacks and mass school shootings. They are like birth pangs in frequency and intensity. This is just one part of the CONVERGENCE or CONVERGING of signs. End of note.
‘We Need the President’s Help’: Amidst Violence, Chicago Dem Asks Trump to Ignore Emanuel’s ‘Ban’
Fox News. August 6, 2018.
A Democratic Illinois state lawmaker who represents part of Chicago’s West Side that has been heavily impacted by an increase in shootings asked publicly on “Fox & Friends” for President Donald Trump’s help. State Representative La Shawn Ford said three of the 63 people shot over the weekend in Chicago were victimized within steps of his church.
Ford said he was not opposing Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) outright, but clarified that the president should not consider the city a “Trump-Free Zone” — which Emanuel declared it in 2017. “We have to make sure that President Trump recognizes that not everybody believes that Chicago is a Trump-Free Zone,” Ford said.
Ford thanked Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell, a Chicago native, for putting a spotlight on the violence in town and noted both men took part in a large rally last week to draw further attention to the shootings. Ford said the Chicago Police Department is “not trusted, with the mass genocide that’s happening in the community.”
“The government allows drugs and gangs to dominate those communities [in my district],” he said. “We need the president’s help in Chicago.” Ford said the U.S. sends billions of dollars to underdeveloped countries that are similarly rife with crime, but does not do the same in Chicago and elsewhere domestically. He said Emanuel should begin working with Trump to fix the crime problem, adding that “as long as we are divided and fighting against the president, [improvement] is not going to happen.”
