Thirty-five people were shot, five fatally, during a bloody holiday weekend in Chicago .
A 24-year-old woman was killed on Friday night during a shootout between two men in the city’s Chinatown area, with one of the gunman and two others being wounded during the incident, according to reporting from ABC 7. The woman was struck in the torso and was taken to Stroger Hospital but died of her injuries, police say.
Four more people were wounded Friday night in West Garfield Park when a man walking down the road opened fire on the group, with a 25-year-old man being struck in the back and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was listed in serious condition. The three other victims were also taken to the hospital but listed in good condition.
A 30-year-old man was fatally shot in the head on the city’s South Side early Saturday, with police saying they had no suspects in custody. A 90-year-old man was hospitalized later Saturday after suffering a gunshot wound to the abdomen, with Mount Sinai Hospital listing him in critical condition. Police say they have talked to a person of interest in the case. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot touts a 10% decrease in murders and 15% decrease in shootings year-to-date. The shooting came the same day Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot held a press conference, where she expressed appreciation for the city’s police officers.
“We need to remember every single day on every single watch, our brave men and women of the Chicago Police Department are out there literally risking their lives for our safety,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said during a Friday press conference, reminding residents to “say thank you” to officers.
Chicago Police Department (CPD) Superintendent David Brown joined Lightfoot, and said the July 4 holiday would be a difficult weekend for police.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
