Watch: I Went To San Francisco. What Happened To One Of America’s Most Beautiful Cities?

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/21/2019 11:35:48 PM

A few months ago, Colton Haas and I traveled to the once beautiful city of San Francisco, hoping to have a question answered: What happened to San Francisco? (Video) Erica Sandberg, a community advocate and journalist, broke it down for us: "Right now the major issue — people always call it homelessness — but the major issue is drugs." While San Francisco has always battled homelessness and currently has about 7,000 homeless people, the drug issue is exacerbating the problem. The city currently hands out more than 400,000 syringes each month but only 246,000 are returned, leaving 154,000 syringes left

Leftists and homosexuals have made it a place where all "normal" behavior is unusual, and all deviant and illegal behavior is the norm, and seems to be preferred by the city leaders.

It has been about 8 or 9 years since I was in SanFran, and I have no intention of going back, ever.

In the summer of ‘85 with our school-aged children, we saw feces on our way walking to Fisherman’s Wharf. I can only imagine how much worse it is.

Don´t be misled: the voters want this. They think they are being compassionate. This is why sane people--read: conservatives--are getting out in record numbers.

The documentary "Seattle Is Dying" left little doubt that Seattle´s homeless crisis is in actual fact a crisis of drugs, not homeless like the liberal politicians keep claiming. This article supports that view, observing without connecting things to Seattle that San Francisco´s "homeless" problem is a result of drugs as well.

One has to worry that this is another case of the government making a "crisis" bad enough that the people don´t ask, but demand, the government fix it, which, in turn, allows the government to take further freedoms away.

Not to get all preachy on you, but when the democrats abandoned God, it was clear that they had made the decision to go down the road to ruin. Unfortunately, they are taking our cities and states with them. You cannot embrace sinful behavior and expect a good outcome. It just does not work that way. Enabling drug abusers is a recipe for disaster. Also, ignoring a growing mental health crisis caused many times by the drugs that people are consuming has catastrophic consequences. The Bible says that the ways of man seem right but the end brings disaster. We cannot excuse wrong behavior because doing so makes us feel better. We must confront it and then deal with it. Democrats want to make themselves feel self-righteous while their cities and states are being destroyed. Ignoring only enables the problem and you will always get more of the same.

Republicans would be smart to point out that the policies of democrats always lead to misery and destruction. Not one of the cities or states that are run by the democrats is prospering. Democrat policies are like political locusts that destroy everything in their way. Never ever vote for a democrat on any level. You will be voting for your own destruction.

The San Fran city government has a total disaster on their hands and they have time to count syringes? How pathetic do you have to be to not see the problem? They continue to support the homeless and make it easy for them to use drugs and continue their hedonistic lifestyle but they do not want The Wall to be built, which would solve the problem for them. They are a special kind of stupid.

I wonder if the hundred thousand plus drug users, including those who want help, are registered Marxists (Rio Lindans, that would be Democrats) who vote for Marxists every single election. I wonder. Huh, that would be weird if that were the case, no?

You can bet that the leftist and liberal Democrats are now planning how they will be able to harvest as many votes as possible from the homeless and strung out populations and elsewhere during the run up to the 2020 election.

The continued attempts by the Democrats to further liberalize the voter registration laws and who is eligible to vote are designed to make it much easier for the Democrats to harvest as many votes as possible from identity based constitutencies including the street deficators.

As poster #11 notes, we see the results all the time now when belief in the Creator has been replaced with obeyance to the deep state. This is the root of socialism´s evil that has overcome our once great cities.

The list of socialism failures indeed includes many of our once great cities. New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Chicago, especially Detroit, Denver has applied for admission, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Newark, and many others in the northeast. Notice that every one of these cities is run by a progressive/mafia-like machine known to us as the democrat party who claim they are for the people.

When liberals start complaining about their own failed policies you would think change is imminent. Unfortunately they are incapable. Hence this will continue and the same losers will be re-elected so they can continue to destroy San Francisco. My advice would be don´t go there and if you live there move.

Sell the whole enchilada to Mexico. They think it belongs to them already but would still hock the house to get their hands on California once again. This transaction would work like a Louisiana Purchase in reverse where we rid ourselves of massive tracts of volcano and earthquake vulnerable land in exchange for gold, oil, and a fat check. Trump is itching to make this deal. When the big one hits, Mexico will sell it back to us for pennies on the dollar instead of shouldering the responsibility to rebuild. In the meantime, let Mexico City deal with Gavin Newsome, Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Kamala Harris, and their merry band of grifters.

I am happy to have my memories of San Francisco from years ago. Spent a lot of time there - business and pleasure - staying in wonderful hotels like The Clift and dining at places like L’Etoile, which in those days had an elegant piano bar a la the Carlisle in New York. We dressed for dinner. It was also fun to roam the streets, which were clean… The ferry to Sausalito for seafood. Great memories.

No point in ever going back.

The whole of the Financial District and the whole of Market Street smell of urine, or worse. Aggressive bums everywhere, Union Square included. August 2017 I was harassed and harangued at a bus stop by a black man, and I said not one word to him.

The downfall began in the 1960s when the hippie generation flocked to San Francisco for music, free love, and drugs. Now they and their progency are the homeless drug users who beg, harrass, and endanger all those who venture there. Where are all of the drugs coming from - how can the homeless afford them each and every day - who is fostering this sordid behavior and decay?

Along with the rest of the decay that generation has inflicted upon our culture, their socialist ideas and non-solutions have spread to our cities nationwide. Our cities were once beacons to the world, their beauty and cleanliness unsurpassed. Now they are cesspolls of rot and are shunned are businesses, vacationers, world tourists, conventions, and those seeking job opportunities and traditional lifestyles. Visitors from other parts of the world describe San Francisco as having worse conditions that some of the Third World cities that they have visited.

There is no hope for our cities intil they can once again offer safe, clean neighborhoods where businesses can flourish and where families can settle and raise their children in a traditional American style and with traditional American principles - unfortunately, this is not the picture that the socialist Democrats, who control our cities, foresee or want.

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Weaver had also previously mocked the Trump administration for being weak on Russia sanctions. Thursday afternoon,

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday misquoted a portion of President Donald Trump’s immigration speech and was quickly met with a fact-check by a Breitbart News reporter. Speaking in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump unveiled immigration reform proposals aimed at increasing the quota for skilled workers. During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

Every student taking the SAT will now be given an ´adversity score´ to level the playing field between people with different social and economic backgrounds, but critics say children of affluent parents could be penalized by the new system. The scoring system was established by the national College Board, the nonprofit which administers the test, according to The Wall Street Journal. The new system will use 15 different factors to weigh a student´s adversity score, based on things such as the crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood where the teens grew up.

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
