Last weekend, female police officer and mother Ella French was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop. She was only 29-years-old with a two month old baby at home.
As her fellow officers prepared to pay her tribute and mourn her death as they do for all of their fallen brothers and sisters in blue, with an honor guard and bagpipes, the Deputy Police Superintendent declared that they didn't have 20 minutes "for that sh*t."
“We don’t have 20 minutes for this s–t, we’re not waiting on the bagpipes. Go ahead and get the vehicle inside. Take it all the way inside. Do not stop!” said DPS Eric Carter.

As if that wasn't disgraceful enough, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot supported the decision to take her body straight to the medical examiner's office to be laid to rest....without the traditional ceremonies.
She claims it was for COVID precautions, however, she didn't have any COVID precautions when it came to Lollapalooza taking place with a crowd of nearly 400k people....WHICH she attended MASKLESS.
Gateway Pundit reports:
Lightfoot also claimed that there was no “official” honor guard available and instead disrespected the officers who were gathered and ready to pay their respects, calling them an unorganized group that wanted to “hijack the procession.”
“There was no official honor guard that night. There was, let me choose my words very carefully, a well-meaning but not well organized group that wanted to hijack the procession. Which would have meant that the family would have been exponentially delayed in getting to the morgue.”
Not only are her excuses complete BS, they’re also outright lies. The Cook County medical examiner’s office said in a statement that rules for processions have not changed since the pandemic began and there have been no additional restrictions put in place.
“Protocols for processions at the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office have not changed since the pandemic began. First responders have always gathered in the parking lot and dock to pay respects to fallen police officers and firefighters.
Early Sunday morning, police officers gathered in the parking and dock area as usual and bagpipers accompanied the body of Officer Ella French through the parking lot to the dock. At no time did personnel from the Medical Examiner’s Office try to impede officers or bagpipers.”

Sen. Cruz: 'Pelosi is Drunk on Power' - Probably Vodka Too
On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the Senate floor, declaring that she is drunk on power with her new mask mandates. Power isn't the only thing she is drunk on...I'd say there is some vodka in the mix too.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Great men are almost exclusively bad men, even where they exercise influence and not authority,” Cruz said, pulling from a series of letters to Bishop Craig from Lord Acton. He added that “those words were true in 1887, and they’re true today.”
WATCH: Staffer Passes Biden a Note to Wipe His Chin
Joe Biden. Bless his heart. How he has wormed his way into the Oval Office when he should be in a nursing home is beyond me. Yet here we are.
Today, Biden sat in front of cameras for what appears to be a wildfire briefing. Suddenly a staffer comes into view and slides a piece of paper to Biden. He reads it, and then promptly wipes his chin. However, he then holds the note where the camera can see it at different points. Once, it even faces the camera directly.
