The First Opium War (Chinese: 第一次鴉片戰爭), also known as the Opium War or the Anglo-Chinese War, was a series of military engagements fought between the United Kingdom and the Qing dynasty of China over their conflicting viewpoints on diplomatic relations, trade, and the administration of justice in China

In the 17th and 18th centuries, the demand for Chinese goods (particularly silk, porcelain, and tea) in Europe created a trade imbalance between Qing Imperial China and Great Britain. European silver flowed into China through the Canton System, which confined incoming foreign trade to the southern port city of Canton. To counter this imbalance, the British East India Company began to auction opium grown in India to independent foreign traders in exchange for silver, and in doing so strengthened its trading influence in Asia. This opium was transported to the Chinese coast, where local middlemen made massive profits selling the drug inside China. The influx of narcotics reversed the Chinese trade surplus, drained the economy of silver, and increased the numbers of opium addicts inside the country, outcomes that worried Chinese officials.

There is no way in hades that this level of urban violence is not in MANY WAYS SANCTIONED.....there are a constellation of influences keeping the fires burning in Chicago and it is the Global Cabal Trump and Friends are fighting who are bankrolling and supporting this simmering fire....they will one day soon use it as a platform to launch psy-ops that incite domestic violence or race related violence that could ignite a Civil conflict.


There are more good people than bad people in this City.....if every good person had an HONEST TRUE IMPACTFULL PLACE to report gang activity and gun possesions then we could clean out Chicago in six months.....because the city is such a cesspool of graft and corruption and poverty on such a deep level we CANNOT COUNT ON THE STATUS QUO LEGAL PROCESSES AND SYSTEMS TO HELP US IN ANY WAYS.....the entire PROCESS IS ROTTEN FROM JUDGES TO JANITORS......so you set up a major social media platform and office made up of Federal Marshals and you begin to pick off every single person reported on the Ratlines and you REMOVE THEM FROM THE JURISDICTION IMMEDIATLY...you EXPORT THEM AWAY FROM THE LOCAL SUPPORT NETWORK OF FEDERAL AND CICIL SUPPORTS THEY CAN GET FROM THE GLOBAL CABAL...you ARREST AND EXPORT ALL CIVIL POLICE AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT BAD APPLES INCLUDING 3-LETTER AGENCIES...everyone ripped out of the Jurisdiction and transported across the Country by a Federal law enforcement agency empowered to do just this.....no one expects it on a massive scale....because no one understands that 10,000 or 100,000 people can be deputised at once if need be.

Yes you could clean up Chicago...but Americans dont give a dam...they wont even step up to the plate to defend their own president they allow MSM and other negative influences with Global roots to rip him and their Country to pieces and they do nothing to stop it...the MSM outlets are NOT OWNED BY AMERICANS they are owned by the global cabal....Privately owned MSM is not what your CONSTITUTION WAS DESIGNED TO PROTECT THIS UNDER THE AUSPICES OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION BUT YOU HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED INTO BELIEVING THIS IS SO....it is not so.

Chicago had metal detectors on all entrances in pre-schools and bars on all apartment windows in the 80s
Children were bringing in their parents firearms for show and tell.
Nothing new

The black ans Hispanic populations in those communities are the ones who need to start giving a # not the mythical white boogieman

The Mayor of Chicago (Rahm Emanuel) said as much, 2 weeks ago.

Conservatives all over the nation praised him. Liberals slammed him for being insensitive. Rahm quickly washed his mouth out with soap and shut up.

In-spite of Chicago telling illegals to come here, Trump has offered to send "assistance" with thwarted the violence. But the callous bastards who run things, feel they're making progress. Tell that to the parents of the 7 year old killed on his porch last Saturday. News media has been "asked" to not interview innocent victim's families.

Besides posting the disparity on the internet, what are you doing personally to quell this problem.

I used to focus in on the lack of media coverage on one certain thing vs another, but it comes to a point where words on a screen are only words on a screen. Action must be taken by those aware that action must be taken.

Unless you are from Chicago or Illinois, there is nothing you can do about it. But you can improve the well-being is where you’re from.

For instance, I’m in the process of starting a business. That business is an academy of sorts, an academy with the very distinct focus of building character and developing adversity in people of all ages, races and genders. I won’t discuss the specifics, online, but the goal is to reintroduce people to the tools we once had that help us get through the challenging parts of life a little bit better, removed from all the technologies that hinder that development. It’s my way of trying to make the world just a little bit better.

So, what’s your way of fixing the problem?

Whats one man to do about Chicago...

Like bullying bullies.

Question: Is it really necessary to make a political baiting thread in the Breaking News section that is pretty much just a gripe that people are only paying attention to certain gun crimes? Why are these crimes more important than the shooting in Florida? Why can't these just stand as two separate news stories that show the severity of gun crimes?

Is your point that you want us to be more alarmed of guns? Because your thread here helps in that regard. Mass shooting at an esports tournament and ongoing gang slayings in Chicago (and I'm sure every major city in the US). Lots of those guns are handgun slayings too. Do you want us to focus on handgun gun control measures?

Sorry. I started out just asking one question, but the way you wrote this thread caused more questions to come out. Blame my ADD I guess.

Yes, Chicago, a model for sanctuary cities. In other words sanctuary = lawlessness.

This is a terrible comparison since Chicago's gun violence predates anything to do with sanctuary cities. Chicago has been dealing with gang violence since the 1930's. Don't try to force a correlation that any idiot can see through.

The correlation is gun violence got a hell of a lot worse after Democratic mayor Rahm Emmanuel took the helm and announced the city status as a sanctuary city. It gives the thugs an extra degree of freedom when the mayor won’t adhere to all rule of law. Any idiot can see that.

Chicago is considered the most gang-infested city in the United States, with a population of over 100,000 active members from nearly 60 factions.[67][68] Gang warfare and retaliation is common in Chicago. Gangs were responsible for 61% of the homicides in Chicago in 2011.


en.wikipedia.org...

So you are equating the WORST situation in the US to all sanctuary cities? Um, yeah.

Got any proof to back up that correlation? Because this sounds like intolerance towards immigrants mixed with your inexperience with the city of Chicago talking to me.

a reply to: intrepid

The simple fact is that immigrants, both legal and illegal, commit far less crime than native born citizens. It's been statistically proven. There is literally no way that his correlation has any merit, but speaking from ignorance is a lot easier than researching your position and speaking from a position of knowledge.

The weekend that 72 were shot (August 3/4/5) has yielded ONLY ONE ARREST.

The Democrats who run Chicago really don't give a damn about minorities. They really don't....


If 1 black gang banger shoots and kills another black gang banger I for one don't give a damn. Not because it was a black man that was killed but because he was a gang banger. If those drug dealers and gang bangers want to kill each other then I say leave them alone and let them. I don't care what color their skin is, to me it's just one less scum bag on the street. You want to blame Democrats for gang violence. How about blaming the people who are the cause. The people who buy and use the drugs that is at the core of the violence. You have Hispanic gangs moving in to take control of the drug trade that is currently being controlled by the black gangs. Black gangs who were, by the way, being supplied by the Mexican drug cartel's until just a few years ago. A partnership that began in the 80s when the Mexican cartel's decided to use the already established black gangs to move their products in the US. They now have a large enough force of Hispanic gangs and no longer need the black gangs. So now it's just a matter of elimination of the competition, one city at a time. Chicago is just next in line, and since I don't use drugs I really don't care if they kill each other.

What is one man to do? Simple you go out and find another man with the same goals and like magic now you're two men. The two find another one bingo now you're four men etc, etc, etc....... Next thing you know things start to change. However as long as you just sit on your butt and complain about nothing being done, look in the mirror first before you look for someone to blame.
