Oracle, a major Silicon Valley tech company, will move its annual OpenWorld conference to Las Vegas next year – over concerns about San Francisco’s hotel rates and the city’s “poor street conditions,” according to reports. The loss of OpenWorld, which has been held in San Francisco for about 20 years, is raising new concerns about whether the city’s struggles with homelessness, open drug use and street violence may be scaring off tourism and other business, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. “For the industry, for the city, to have a major conference leave us impacts all of us,” Kevin Carroll, chief executive

San Francisco: the Soon-to-be Detroit by the Bay. Who wants to go to Detroit? Baltimore? Even East Saint Louie? All these cities and more, destroyed by liberals.

FTA: "In Oakland, residents have been placing massive logs around the city in a bid to discourage transients from setting up camp near local businesses." I thought the placing of massive logs was part of the problem.

This news on top of the cancellation of the AMA conference should wake San Francisco up but it won't. Circling the drain must be a comfortable status for liberals.

San Fran has always been one of those places I would like to visit. Not any more. I think California is in the process of losing most of their tourism business. The state is run by a bunch of absolute morons. By the way, more coffee is not the answer. I think some meditation and relaxation is in order. We all make typos. It is the human condition.

I can never understand how progressives will live with this kind of filth. Being one of the deplorables out here in flyover country I can assure you that no one in my community would stand for that kind of total disregard for respect of property and extreme amount of filth on the streets, not to mention the criminal activity. We might not be as sophisticated as the hoity-toity people of San Francisco, but we would not live in that kind of squalor. When you allow people to use the public streets as restrooms, you have lost any claim to cosmopolitan urbanity. You have moved to third world status. Progressive politics is a destroyer. It offers nothing to enhance the human condition. Misery, chaos, and tyranny will be its outcome. The country class are smart enough to know the ruling class offer nothing of value to us. Let them live in their sanctimonious squalor, jist don’t expect us to bail out them out.

This year while attending Oracle OpenWorld, I was walk down 4th street when this person (can assume gender in SF even though this person had testicles on display), dropped their jeans,squatted and started to defecate. He was immediately surrounded by five of the SFPD's finest. Not to stop him but to shield him from the crowd on the sidewalk. I asked if they could stop such activity (or at least curb train) but was told that was a definite no. Fished, the pooper pulled up his jeans and scuttled away. The five cops had to guard the site until it could be cleaned. What a great use of SFPD personnel and the SF city council thinks the only reason the officers do not live in their city limits is solely due to housing costs.

SF's "poor street conditions" mirrors some of the most filthiest urban areas of the third world. Twenty years ago, I traveled to India extensively on World Bank business and witnessed firsthand the filth, feces on sidewalks, rancid trash on street corners, mange-infested dogs, and polluted waters of Delhi and Calcutta, India. It is impossible to properly described conditions at the train stations without being overly graphic. It was beyond disgusting, While SF isn't quite down to this level yet, it is very much on the same path. Even animals are smart enough to know that you don't leave poop in your own nest. Good job, Nan. Now I understand why you have the big security fence wrapped around your mansion.

WARNING: Even if the Republicans hand the House a classic defeat in November 2020 ---- as they well deserve and have earned --- Pel-lousy is STILL the Speaker and in control from November 10th, 2020 to December 31st, 2020. In those 51 days she can create havoc. She will tell her losing Demo-rat colleagues that they have lost their seats and therefore have nothing more to lose so they can still damage Trump! MMW --- They will impeach Trump again!

We should have realized, when Occupy Wall Street did this to city parks a few years back and no one did anything about it, that this would become the normal situation in leftist cities. And I agree with #8. We in flyover country would never put up with this. I guess because we aren’t “tolerant” like the brain dead leftists and we prefer safety, cleanliness and sobriety on our streets.

We're coming to the point that SF would be a bigger (and cleaner) tourist attraction if it were a nuclear blast crater - once the radiation died down. I wonder if towing a catapult behind your car in SF would be considered illegal carry? Perhaps politics there would change for the better if large globs of "compost" were flung over the walls of the "elites'" compounds in drive-bys. Hiya Nancy, here's a gift for you!

San Francisco leftist and liberal Democrat politicians at all levels can’t be bothered with what is going on as far as city sidewalks and streets are concerned, as those politicians and their operatives are too busy protecting the illegal alien population, and with the Democrat National quest to impeach and remove President Trump from office thus undoing the 2016 election.

No one has mentioned how the cops are not allowed enforce any petty laws, like the pooping and exposure, taking drugs. breaking into cars, which is outta control and shoplifting. This city is encouraging lawlessness and it shows. And now with that new horrible Chesa Boudi who is 100% pro criminals we are screwed.

It's not just at night, btw. The disgusting and obscene behavior goes on during the day. Not just the public defecating and urinating (both of which are legal in SF) and the thousands of dangerous used needles absolutely everywhere (including on bus seats), but the public near nudity, as the gay population boldly walks down the street showing off their right to be outrageous.Then there are the constant car break ins, the extremely aggressive panhandlers, and the drugged up or drunk wanderers. This once beautiful city is an absolute catastrophe. And yet, the residents will not stop electing the most radical (and incompetent) politicians.

Hillary Clinton is back, and so is Chris Steele, this time in the United Kingdom. They are no less than implying that current Conservative (Tory) Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a Russian plant. And it’s no mistake that these allegations are being made just before a U.K. general election on December 12 that will decide the fate of Brexit. It started last month, when the U.K.’s leftwing Guardian newspaper reported the existence of a secret report that said the Russians spent five years “cultivating leading Tories including Johnson…” The 50-page “dossier” from the U.K.’s intelligence and security committee is “based on analysis from Britain’s intelligence agencies, as well as third-party experts

When the FBI discovered that the anti-Trump Steele dossier was garbage, the bureau concealed that vital evidence. Instead of promptly terminating its surveillance of Donald Trump’s former campaign adviser Carter Page, the FBI persisted in its quest to prove a Trump-Russia “collusion” conspiracy that officials knew was unsupported by credible evidence.(Snip)It is not remotely plausible to dismiss this appalling conduct as sloppy or careless work. It cannot be minimized (or trivialized) as just a case of “performance failures,” as Horowitz would have us believe.

In a freewheeling speech Wednesday to kick off the committee's hearing on FBI abuses, Graham said that Crossfire Hurricane – a covert counterintelligence investigation by the FBI into suspected coordination between President Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russian government's meddling in the election – was "probably the best name ever given to an investigation in the history of investigations" because, he exclaimed, "that's what we wound up with: a crossfire and a hurricane."

There is very good news about the North American Free Trade Agreement. That news is not that the Democrats and the labor unions have reached a deal with President Trump about the U.S.–Mexico–Canada Agreement that is to succeed it, although they have. The good news is that NAFTA will continue much as before if, as looks likely, the USMCA goes through. On the campaign trail, Trump excoriated NAFTA as an economic disaster for the United States. But the USMCA mostly replicates NAFTA. And it’s a good thing, too, since Trump was never persuasive in his denunciations of an agreement that has had a positive effect

Just 11 weeks after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced her “official impeachment inquiry,” Judiciary Committee chief Jerry Nadler released his draft articles of impeachment — remarkably weak ones. The same day, Pelosi announced a deal with President Trump to pass his US-Mexico-Canada trade deal, replacing NAFTA. It’s a win for him and for her moderate members — yet the speaker is simultaneously treating the president as a threat to the republic and as a man she can do business with. The reason may be as simple as the polls: The latest Quinnipiac survey shows sentiment against impeachment at its strongest since Pelosi got the ball rolling on Sept. 24, with more than half

The ICA, a report conducted by intelligence officials in 2016 on Russian election interference, was used to brief President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump in January 2017. According to the IG report, there was significant discussion by top intelligence officials as to whether the unverified Steele dossier should be included in the main body of the ICA report, summarized in an appendix, or even included at all.

No, it didn’t, said Durham:(Snip) Translation: Durham has collected much more information than Horowitz, and it points toward the conclusion that the investigation was bogus from the start. Naturally, the media is portraying Horowitz’s timid conclusion as a refutation of Trump while ignoring the import of Durham’s objection. Reporters have also scoffed at Attorney General Bill Barr’s comments buttressing Durham’s position. How outrageous, they harrumphed, that Barr would “undercut” a subordinate.

In a 23-page court filing, Page's attorneys spell out how on December 12, 2017, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions' spokeswoman invited reporters to the Department of Justice's headquarters after normal business hours and showed them the texts. This release led to years of 'demeaning' tweets from President Trump, forced Page into therapy and left her looking for work, the lawsuit said.

Senate Republicans are weighing a speedy impeachment trial that could include no witnesses for President Trump’s legal team or for House Democrats. The discussions come as the House is moving forward with articles of impeachment against Trump, teeing up a trial in the Senate that would start in January. The White House has indicated publicly that it has a wish list of potential witnesses, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Hunter Biden and the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry. But Republican senators, including Trump allies and members of leadership, appear reluctant to drag themselves through a drawn-out trial with messy procedural votes when the outcome appears pre-baked.
