Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin headed to the United Nations in New York Thursday to ask for help fighting violence in Chicago.
"I'm hoping to appeal the UN to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peace keeping efforts," Boykin said.
Boykin boarded a plane to New York City for a meeting with an Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations. It's a meeting that's been planned for more than a month and stems from disconcerting violence numbers seen this year in Chicago. Violence which is felt particularly hard in many African American communities.
"We've had over 600 people killed by gun violence already this year alone. That is a huge number, in my community of Austin we've had 450 people shot and 80 people killed this year alone 18 so we have to do more to protect these communities," Boykin said.
The mayor's office says the call for UN peacekeepers is a political stunt. The police superintendent said it's a nice idea, but it's not the answer to Chicago's violence.
"I appreciate the commissioner's energy and his anxiousness to help reduce the gun violence in Chicago, I really do commend that, but at the end of the day the UN has no jurisdiction here, they really have no jurisdiction in this country," Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said.
If you are curious what it looks and sounds like to be completely brainwashed into believing that your way of life actually makes sense despite it's completely conflicting ideologies, take a listen to this young lady, Aima Warriach, who honestly believes that Islam is a religion for feminist.
Try not to laugh as you listen to her explain why she thinks wearing the Niqab actually makes her a feminist.
Apparently, she has ignored the centuries upon centuries of oppression of women under the role of Islam throughout the Middle East and the world.
President Trump: We’re going to rebuild the FBI. It will be bigger and better than ever. But it’s very sad when you look at those documents. And how they’ve done that is really, really disgraceful… It’s a very sad thing to watch. The level of anger with what they are witnessing at the FBI is certainly very sad… Russia was a Democrat hoax. I had nothing to do with Russia. I did not even make a call to Russia. Even the Democrats admit there was no collusion… When you look at the Hillary Clinton investigation. I ‘ve been saying it for a long time. That was a rigged system folks. That was a rigged system. When you look at what they did in respect to the Hillary Clinton investigation it was rigged.
The State Department struck a deal with Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin that allowed them to remove electronic and physical records they claimed were “personal” and “unclassified, non-record materials,” according to Judicial Watch.
Some records were deemed to be personal correspondence, but other records that were removed included Clinton's official schedules and call logs, Ed Henry reported on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
Abedin was allowed to take five boxes of “physical files” out of the State Department, including records described as “Muslim Engagement Documents," Henry reported.
He said it is not known if the State Department kept copies of the electronic and physical records that were removed.
“We already know the Obama State Department let Hillary Clinton steal and then delete her government emails, which included classified information. But these new records show that was only part of the scandal," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. "These new documents show the Obama State Department had a deal with Hillary Clinton to hide her calls logs and schedules, which would be contrary to FOIA and other laws."
This liberal wanted to see what it felt like to shoot a gun, perhaps that was a huge mistake because he apparently suffers from PTSD over this couple seconds of unloading a few chambers down the range.
St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson (D) is reacting to the rising crime in her city by offering to give people groceries in exchange for their firearms.
She will do this via the kind of buyback program that Democrats in other cities have unsuccessfully implemented around the country.
On December 8, 2017, KSDK reported that St. Louis had witnessed more murders in 2017 than in any year since 1995. On December 11 the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department listed the number of murders, year-to-date, at 197.
The SLMPD shows that 185 of those 197 murders were carried out with firearms. One hundred sixty-two of the victims were black males and 22 were black females. Ten victims were Hispanic. One hundred twenty-seven of the suspects in the killings were black, and one suspect was white.
Sean Hannity: How close do you think we are now to getting to the truth and who’s in trouble tonight?
Gregg Jarrett: Well, I think Congress is going to start demanding the truth and holding people in contempt of Congress if they continue to defy… Clinton should be very, very worried tonight.
Sean Hannity: Should Huma Abedin be worried?
Gregg Jarrett: Yes.
Sean Hannity: Cheryl Mills?
Greg Jarrett: Yes.
Sean Hannity: James Comey?
Gregg Jarrett: Yes.
The man who authorities say assaulted a physically disabled man outside a borough convenience store, throwing what amounted to a “sucker punch” at him, is now claiming that he is the victim of an alleged assault by a corrections officer at the Chester County Prison. The District Attorney’s office said prison officials are investigating the claim.
In a handwritten letter mailed to the Daily Local News last week, Barry Robert Baker Jr. — who identified himself as “the person whom you guys love writing about” — stated that he was assaulted by one of the officers assigned to the protective custody block of the prison where he is being housed.
He said one of the officers attacked him while another acted as a “look out,” and that he suffered a variety of injuries, according to the letter dated Aug. 2. They include a separated shoulder, a concussion, and a seizure.
Baker, 29, of Georgetown, Delaware, and formerly of East Fallowfield, is charged with simple assault and related counts in the May attack on a 22-year-old man who has cerebral palsy. Baker is accused of leveling a punch that caught the man square in the face as he stood beside his car outside the 7-11 store on South High Street in West Chester.
Before throwing the punch, Baker had twice mocked the way the man walked, according to police. The episode was captured on video, which went viral on the internet after it was released by county prosecution authorities.
He is also charged with fleeing and eluding police, stemming from a widespread manhunt among local police, Chester County Sheriffs, and U.S. Marshals to take him into custody on warrants issued after his arrest on the assault charge.
Baker’s attorney, Thomas Purl III of Downingtown, acknowledged on Tuesday that his client had complained to him that he was “roughed up” by a corrections officer. He said he had alerted the prosecutor handling the case, Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Morgan, to the accusation.
After months of anticipation, dozens of Star Wars fans were vocally angry when the “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” began to roll with no sound at a Burbank theater Thursday night.
Several posts to social media show fuming fans standing in the lobby of the AMC Burbank 16, 125 Palm Ave., demanding management start the movie over again.
According to Twitter user, Isaias Rodriguez, theater management attempted to appease the angry fans by either moving them to another screening at the same theater — albeit not in the IMAX format — or to attend a screening of the much-anticipated film at another AMC theatre Friday.
Despite these options, many fans were not satisfied.
The discovery of a mysterious creature resembling a dinosaur with flesh still on its bones has left scientists baffled.
The partially-preserved corpse was uncovered by an electrician cleaning out a sub-station left untouched for 35 years.
The creature – which was found in Jaspur, a small city in Uttarakhand, India – has now been sent for analysis, including carbon dating, which will reveal its age.
Experts say that although it looks like a small dinosaur that could be near impossible as flightless dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years.
Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed the ongoing investigations into the possibility that President Donald Trump’s campaign “colluded” with the Russians.
“That’s been invented by those that are in the opposition, people who oppose President Trump to delegitimize his time in office,” Putin replied to ABC News reporter Terry Moran during a press conference via a translator. “And it really seems strange to me because it seems that they don’t understand, they undermine their own nation.”
Putin said that he had respect for the Democrats opposition, but that they risked alienating Trump supporters.
“It limits the powers of the president who has been elected,” he said. “It means that they don’t have respect for those Americans who elected Donald Trump.”
The amusing picture collective.
The target put up a hell of a fight before eventually being shot and killed
Just a few months after implementing a massive 60% hike in gasoline taxes, raising them from $0.297 per gallon to $0.417, the state of California is now one step closer to implementing a brand new tax that would charge drivers for each mile driven.
As a quick example of how shockingly misguided such a piece of legislation would be, the logical conclusion here is that poor people who have been forced out of cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego due to rising rents would now be forced to incur yet another massive tax for simply commuting into city centers to do their jobs...in essence, in many cases, it would serve as a regressive tax on the poorest families...
California - Senate - Bill - Mileage - Tax
So how did we get here? It all started back in 2014 when California passed Senate Bill 1077 calling for a mileage tax. The bill kicked off the California Road Charge Pilot Program which sought to design and test various strategies for implementing a mileage tax.
Now, after 3 full years of studying various methodologies for tracking mileage, from requiring a "plug-in" for each vehicle to tracking your smart phone movements to more manual systems that would track odometers, the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA), according to a newly filed report is officially ready to declare a mileage tax 'feasible'.
No Other Information At The Moment
This is the terrifying moment two gun-wielding masked raiders burst into a village shop and demanded employees hand over cash while holding a firearm to their heads.
The violent thieves opened fire within the shop, according to police reports, but employees escaped unhurt.
Employees Jill Carrington-Lowe and Luke Searston have been awarded for their bravery throughout the ordeal.
The assailants, Andrew Pakulsi and Lee Barratt, have been jailed for the armed robbery at the Co-Op in Whitwell, Derby in January, the Derby Telegraph reports.
Police say Pakulsi was armed with a pistol and fired a bullet towards Luke while manager Jill was told to open the till at gunpoint.
Miraculously, Luke was uninjured in the exchange.
A shocking if questionable video has emerged showing two men apparently viciously assault the operator of a giant digger - before he exacts revenge by mercilessly smashing up their car .
It is not clear whether this dramatic road rage video - which was posted on Instagram and has divided the internet - is real or fake.
Footage shows the large excavating machine working on a snow-covered road when a bright green car pulls up and two men jump out, waving frantically as if asking the digger operator to move.
But the large machine makes no effort to leave the road and continues with its work.
The two men suddenly leap up onto the machine and appear to viciously pummel and kick the operator who is cornered in the machine cabin.
The unnamed person who filmed the incident gets out of their own vehicle as the fight breaks out, and appears to shout at the men who suddenly turn around to face the camera.
They then march menacingly towards the camera but as they do, the digger grips their car, crunching its metal digger head through the car windscreen.
It drags the car up by the back and tips it forward before methodically smashing and crushing it until it crumples into a mess of green metal.
The men turn around in horror and throw their hands in the air in shock.
But the digger operator has not finished yet and it grips the ruined car again and proceeds to demolish the vehicle completely before the video cuts out.
The video emerged last night online but it is not known where it was filmed, or whether it was staged or real.
A 41-year-old woman died after a car crashed through the window of the restaurant where she was sat eating a meal.
Zamara Gonzales was sitting at the booth by the window of the Pollo Tropical restaurant in Davie, Florida, when the red Toyota Matrix ploughed through the building.
She was trapped under the vehicle for 15 minutes while emergency services desperately tried to save her, but tragically died at the scene.
Shocking footage released by Davie Police Department shows the moment the driver lost control.
After colliding with another vehicle outside the restaurant, the car swerves over a central reservation and careers into the restaurant's window.
CCTV footage from inside shows the window shattering on impact and the car ploughing straight through the side of the building.
Shocked customers try as best they can to jump out the way, as the car narrowly misses a young child in a pushchair.
But sadly Gonzales did not have time to move.
As soon as the car comes to a stop, other diners can be seen trying to help the woman trapped underneath the car.
One of the waitresses can even be seen jumping across the serving desk.
In local news reports a witness said: "I mean, everyone was just trying to get a grip on it (the car) and lift it.
"The floor was pretty wet, so no one could really move without slipping."
The emergency services were called to the incident and after firefighters managed to free Gonzalez she was given chest compressions.
She was then taken to hospital but it was there where doctors pronounced her dead.
Two others were injured in the smash when flying debris hit a man, called Steve Pierre, and a seven-year-old boy.
They were both taken to hospital too.
While the man is expected to make a full recovery, the young boy suffered a lacerated liver, broken rib and a pulmonary hematoma.
Although his injuries are severe, doctors are expecting him to survive.
The Davie Police Department said the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
This is the bizarre moment a disgraced former fireman stripped off completely NAKED and burgled a shop - in full view of CCTV cameras.
In the unusual turn of events the 40-year-old man, surnamed Lin, first sits down on a chair in his shorts and T-shirt before spotting the security cameras and giving them a wave.
Next he starts removing his clothes - making sure he leaves his shoes on - before entering the rest of the shop.
Carrying his bag and clothes in one arm, he walks around completely naked browsing the items in the room.
Then he starts opening boxes and loading up a bag with products, including a mobile phone, before putting his clothes back on and leaving.
Lin was sacked from the fire service for drug offences and is now being charged with breaking and entering as well as theft by the authorities in Kaohsiung City in south-western Taiwan.
He was a former member of the fire service at Kaohsiung International Airport but was asked to leave when his employers became aware of his drug habit.
This is the eerie moment a ghostly apparition was caught on camera floating through a Kent family home.
The 'haunted' Grade II listed building was once a hospital and the family that live there are now convinced they share it with these uninvited guests.
The sppoky sighting was captured on cameras in the living room - originally set-up to keep an eye on the family's two French Bulldogs.
While they slept the footage shows a translucent white shadow floating in to the room through the French doors and gliding across the sofa.
Police have revealed that six children have died following a horrific crash when a school bus was hit by a train in France.
The bus was cut in half when it was hit by a train travelling 50mph at a level crossing between Perpignan and Prades in southern France.
Rescuers arrived to a horrific scene in the small town of Millas, France, as victims were found on the ground and inside the destroyed bus.
The horror crash occurred at a level crossing between Perpignan and Prades, in the Pyrénées-Orientales region of southern France.
The bus - carrying children from Collège Christian Bourquin - was reportedly on the single track while the safety barriers were down.
Six people have now died and another 20 people were injured, 11 of them seriously, said French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.
Most of the injured were schoolchildren aged 13-17, but also included the bus driver and three people on the train.
Dramatic footage shows the moment a policeman saved the life of a woman who was found passed out and not breathing in her car with CPR - before arresting her.
After rushing over to her vehicle that had veered off the road, he carries her out of her car while desperately begging her to wake up - repeatedly urging her: "Please!"
The heart-stopping clip then shows him desperately carrying out CPR willing the 31-year-old to live.
The Florida Highway Patrol trooper responded to the crash at 11.45pm on Wednesday night.
When he got to her, the man and his partner, wearing hi-vis jackets, found the car doors were locked.
WARNING - DISTRESSING CONTENT: The cairn terrier named Boozer had only been outside for less than a minute when the coyote appeared and launched its attack in a Chicago suburb
A little terrier remarkably survived this savage attack by a COYOTE prowling around its suburban home.
The cairn terrier named Boozer had only been outside for less than a minute when the coyote appeared and launched its attack.
The coyote circles Boozer for a few moments before lunging and dragging him across the ground.
Luckily Boozer's owner appeared and scared the coyote away in Chicago, US.
Boozer suffered a bloody head wound and is said be lucky to be alive.
The attack was caught on CCTV, which the family decided to share to highlight the dangers of not keeping an eye on pets when they are outside.
This is the moment an angry cyclist shot fireworks from a homemade rocket launcher in a bizarre revenge attack on two motorbikers.
The man shoves the fireworks in to the device which is strapped to his bike frame and then lights them, all while managing to still cycle down the road.
He then shoots them at the motorbike ahead of him, almost hitting the riders several times.
In the dangerous footage filmed on a camera strapped to the cyclist, you can see him travelling in the cycle lane before two passengers on a motorbike swerve in front of him.
Shouting at him in Italian, it appears they have an issue with the man on the bike as they then speed off ahead.
Becoming angry with the encounter, the cyclist bizarrely fishes out fireworks from his pocket and stuffs them into, what looks like, a cardboard tube positioned between the handlebars of his bike.
Setting them alright, the colourful sparklers shoot off into the distance just ahead of the people on the motorbike.
Exploding into a bright red fiery burst on the road it is lucky the duo did not get hit.
But the cyclist does not stop there.
Retrieving several more fireworks, he again puts them into his launcher releasing a flurry of shots after them, all while shouting in glee.
After a while it appears he manages to hit his target and the motorbike crashes in the near-empty road.
While one of the riders falls off, the other runs away on foot - but he is not fast enough for the man on the bike.
Catching up with him, the cyclist again launches more rockets directly at the man who tries his best to take cover.
The heart-stopping situation only seems to end when the man runs out of ammunition.
Dramatic footage which has emerged showed the staff dragging the man by his feet as he screamed on Tuesday.
Lucy Callaghan caught the incident in the Sainsbury’s Streatham Common store in London on camera - and has since spoken out about what happened saying: "You wouldn't treat an animal like this!"
She was shopping at the branch when she claims she saw staff members forcing the man to the floor and twisting his arm behind his back.
They then allegedly dragged him 100 meters across the floor by his feet to the staff area entrance.
The 40-year-old said she couldn’t believe how violent staff members were being with the man and described the incident as “surreal”.
A shocked Lucy can be heard in the video saying to staff: “This is abuse, what are you pulling him for?”
In the clip the unidentified man can be seen lying on the floor with a look of shock on his face - as staff members surround him and shout at customers trying to intervene.
It is not known what exactly he was alleged to have stolen, however Lucy said that the female staff member can be seen in the clip holding a bag that she had taken from the man.
As they drag him into the back of the store, the man can be heard shouting in pain while a staff member tells Lucy that it is “none of your business” where they are taking the man.
The 30 second clip has already had over 1,300 views since it was uploaded to Facebook.
The footage begins with four members of staff crowded around a man wearing blue jeans and a black jacket lying on the floor.
When Lucy asks “Is this what you get for shoplifting, really?” a male staff member, wearing a Sainsbury’s fleece and holding the alleged shop lifter by the foot shouts at her.
He points and shouts: “You said you were going to stop me, you want to stop me?”
The female staff member puts a hand on the man’s chest and tries to calm him as Lucy asks: “Where are you taking him then? Off the stop floor so you can beat him? Is that where you’re going? So where are you taking him then?”
As Lucy continues to ask the staff where they are taking him, they ignore her and drag the man through the back of the store.
The female staff member then responds that is it “none of your business” and the man can be heard screaming in the background as the doors swing closed.
Lucy took to social media to vent her frustration at the man’s treatment.
An aggressive man who was shouting at a police officer was Tasered only to get straight back up again in a rare feat caught on camera.
Continuing his rant the officer calls for back up and the man can only be stopped when a colleague blasts him in the face with pepper spray.
It is believed the incident kicked off after Craig Hinde allegedly punched his elderly neighbour in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
Footage shows tourists scattering the area as Hinde is face to face with a police officer refusing to do as he is asked.
As a dog starts barking among all the commotion, the officer points his taser at Hinde and tells him to lie on the ground.
This sleazy Lothario probably now realises he needs to work on his chat-up lines - after two women he tried to make a move on threw him in a wheelie bin in disgust.
The hilarious scene was caught on camera by a witness in a nearby car and shows one of the women literally folding the man up while the other holds the bin lid open.
After stuffing him inside the green refuse carrier, the poor man's legs can be seen dangling out the top.
Even so, it does not stop the women from slamming the lid shut on his head and pushing it to the ground.
It is thought the man had approached the two women outside a supermarket in the city of Pretoria, one of South Africa's three capital cities.
He reportedly made indecent suggestions before trying to touch them - much to the women's disgust.
Realising the duo were prepared to stand up for themselves he tried to run off.
And while one of them chased after the failing Romeo the other stood guard with their bags before grabbing a nearby wheelie bin.
When the woman caught up, she grabbed hold of the man and hauled him back to where her friend was waiting.
The man, wearing a hi-vis jacket, got a harsh dressing down - but not in the way he had hoped.
It is then believed the pair slapped him around the head and told him: "Never try that sh*t again.
"We are tired of men like you."
They then picked him up and threw him headfirst into the bin.
The unnamed women told onlookers they had wanted to teach him a lesson so he would not behave that way towards women in the future.
The man, who is also unknown, eventually managed to scramble free and sheepishly walked off.
Bet he didn't have this in mind when he wanted things to get physical.
This dunk wasn't even close.

Louisville Metro police are investigating an officer-involved shooting at a Family Dollar store at 13th and Broadway streets.
The shooting happened around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday.
Officers were responding to a robbery call. Police said the suspect stole money from the store and fired multiple shots inside the store.
When officers arrived, Dominque Hardiman, 24, came out at the back of the store with a handgun and refused to drop it.
Officer Michael Roberson fired a round and shot Hardiman in the leg. Hardiman was taken to University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
He was later taken to Metro Corrections on charges of robbery and wanton endangerment.
Police Chief Steve Conrad said the investigation is ongoing, but police released video from one body camera.
Conrad noted the limitations of a body camera, because it is attached to an officer. No one inside the store was injured. LMPD's Public Integrity Unit is investigating.
Roberson, who has been with the Louisville Metro Police Department since 2005, is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
Looks directly at the camera with recognizable clothes, drives vehicle into driveway, returns with hood up and hat turned around.

A Palestinian wearing what is believed to have been a suicide belt has been shot after stabbing an Israeli soldier in the shoulder during clashes in the West Bank.
The man attacked troops near a military checkpoint in Ramallah amid riots over Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel.
Dramatic video shows the moment he was shot three times as he retreated on a roundabout before collapsing to the ground.
Soldiers can be seen advancing towards him as he lies on the ground - before backing off when they see the device strapped around his waist. It remains unclear as to whether it was operational. Witnesses said he was carrying a small knife.
Meanwhile, officials claimed that two Palestinians had been shot dead by Israeli forces along the border with Gaza today during violent protests. One of them was named as 32-year-old Yasser Sokar.
CBS News reports that with all counties reporting, the Alabama Secretary of State gave the final vote count in yesterday’s special election in Alabama to replace former U.S. senator Jeff Sessions (who left the Senate to be U.S. Attorney General):
49.92% Doug Jones (D); 48.38% Roy Moore (R)
Pro-abort Jones is the first Democrat to be elected to the U.S. Senate in Alabama in 25 years.
Reportedly, absentee ballots from military service members have still not been counted.
Moore refuses to concede and is calling for all the votes to be recounted. The situation is made more urgent because of a ruling by the Alabama Supreme Court yesterday, shooting down a lower court requiring counties to preserve their digital voting records. In other words, Alabama counties can destroy voting records with the blessing of the state supreme court. The Moore legal team will need to jump on this development fast to protect those records.
Moore has compelling reasons to demand a recount:
(1) The difference between the votes for Jones vs. Moore is razor-thin — only 1.54%.
(2) Democratic voter fraud and other irregularities.
There are allegations that busloads of Democratic voters were brought in to voting stations, as well as calls for “African-Americans” in neighboring states to vote in Alabama.
On November 15, 2017, someone who calls himself “Warren4Prez” posted on Reddit a call for “African-Americans in Mississippi” to go to Alabama on December 12 to vote against Roy Moore.
Dr. Dean Lorich, an orthopedic surgeon who volunteered in Haiti and exposed Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice on the island, has been found dead in New York. He was 54.
Dr. Lorich was found by his 11-year-old daughter on the bathroom floor of his tony Upper East Side apartment with a knife in his chest at around 1pm on Monday.
The knife missed the surgeon’s heart, leaving him to bleed out and be found by his daughter. Despite the fact police were called to the property regarding an “assault“, they instantly registered the death as “suicide” and closed the case.
One of the United States’ leading surgeons, Dr. Lorich was part of the relief effort sent by the U.S. to assist the relief effort led by the Clinton Foundation in Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. However Dr. Lorich was disgusted by the “shameful” Clinton Foundation operation, and voiced his concerns to Hillary Clinton directly.
Unsatisfied with her response, he went public, writing an article published by CNN, accusing the Clinton Foundation of widespread corruption and malpractice in Haiti that cost the lives of thousands of children.
Billions of dollars were raised by the Clinton Foundation to help the Haitians, but the vast bulk of this money was funneled to Clinton friends and associates, according to Dr. Lorich, who described in harrowing detail what this meant for the children of Haiti.
Dr. Lorich argued that, in essence, Clinton greed left Haitian children to die painful deaths:
“We expected many amputations. But we thought we could save limbs that were salvageable, particularly those of children. We recognized that in an underdeveloped country, a limb amputation may be a death sentence. It does not have to be so.“
Considering billions of dollars had been donated to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of helping the Haitians, Dr Lorich and his team expected to have full support when their plane touched down.
Instead, Dr. Lorich described the situation on the ground as “shameful” and he witnessed Clinton Foundation corruption in action. The Haitians were receiving no help whatsoever.
According to Dr. Lorich, a paltry 0.6% of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up helping citizens of Haiti. 9.6% ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8% – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.
Dr. Lorich’s WikiLeaks emails
Unable to perform his duties – and disgusted by the rampant corruption – Dr. Lorich sent an email to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl D. Mills to report what he had seen. The email was then forwarded to Hillary Clinton which meant it eventually found its way into WikiLeaks’ possession and can be read here.
Unsatisfied with the lack of response from Hillary Clinton, Dr. Lorich went public, co-authored the CNN article that exposed the Clinton Foundation’s corruption and malpractice in Haiti:
“We found scores of patients with pus dripping out of open extremity fractures and crush injuries,” reported Dr. Lorich.
“Some wounds were already ridden with maggots.“
“About a third of these victims were children.“
“The entire hospital smelled of infected, rotting limbs and death.“
“Later on, we would judge our surgical progress by the diminishment of the stench.”
“As we got up and running and organized the patients for surgery, we told our contacts in the United States [the Clintons] what we needed.“
Unfortunately the Clinton Foundation did not provide that help, despite pocketing billions of dollars from donors with the express purpose of providing medical support to desperate Haitians.
“We left feeling as if we abandoned these patients, the country, and its people, and we feel terrible,” Dr. Lorich wrote, adding: “Our flight of critical medical equipment and personnel had been canceled.“
The father of three girls, Dr. Lorich was the associate director of the Orthopedic Trauma Service at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, as well as the Chief of the Orthopedic Trauma Service at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
Rep. Jim Jordan: Listen you can’t make this stuff up. It gets worse each and every day… What deep down scares me, if this actually happened the FBI had a concerted effort with the people at the top to go after one party’s nominee to help the other party’s nominee. If that actually happened in the United States of America and everything each and every day points to more and more likely that that is what took place, it is sad for our country if that took place. And I think it did based on everything I am seeing. All the evidence points to that.
