Bob Country is discussing:

CLAIM: Video shows proof of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot supporting the “New World Order,” a conspiracy theory built on the idea that the world’s most wealthy and powerful are plotting to overthrow democracy and install a single, global authoritarian government.  AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The video was edited to take her words out of context. Lightfoot was not planning a global coup, she was talking about ending a long-standing and unusual custom in Chicago called “aldermanic prerogative,” which gave aldermen absolute power on zoning and development decisions in their home wards. 

This is fact checking?? Reads more like spin from Karl Rove or something! "Pledging allegiance to the new world order and good governance" is never a good thing to hear out of the mouth of public servants. Whether or not she plans to overthrow the government or whatever is not the issue, the issue is that the mayor is a minion of a corrupt establishment.
