Eighty looters ransacked a Nordstrom store in California's Bay Area on Saturday night, injuring at least three employees in a raid that lasted less than a minute. The large group,wearing ski masks and carrying crowbars, rushed the Walnut Creek store, stole an undetermined amount of merchandise and fled in their vehicles. During the theft, two Nordstrom workers were punched and kicked, while another was sprayed with pepper spray.(Snip)The brazen robbery comes as Bay Area businesses reduce their hours due to a spate of brazen shoplifting incidents. Locals are also slamming woke San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin over his failure to prosecute thefts.


Are corporations and liberals wavering in their deep commitment to Equity?

This looting in the wake of apparent coordinated smash and grabs at Louis Vuitton stores in Chicago and San Francisco. My cynical side says this is “part of the process” to destroy retail and push buyers to big tech monopolies.

Want to know who will pay for the stolen goods. People who shop at the stores. Prices will go up. No security to shoot out the tires of the cars Somehow this has to stop. But definitely shows there are laws for different people in this country

They caught a least one with a gun...AND certainly have their phones. This kind of thing can ONLY be organized online/whatsap/Insta...get a warrant and track all people involved in the conversations that originated and planned it. Max penalties for all. INCLUDING confiscation of all vehicles used in commission of this crime. Many are high dollar, caddies, Mustangs, Chargers, SUVs...prolly not a single Prius or Volt. During the "Floyd Riots" in NYC, a high end store was looted by thieves driving porsches, masarati, and even a Rolls Royce.

Is this the area where they let shoplifting up to $1000? Why stop there when there are no consequences? Nordstrom should close all their stores, and only do business over the internet. The hell with the bay area. Blame the looters, and the government that enables them.

I wonder if these smash and grabs will bring down the value of LV and other high end merchandise being pilfered and saturated in poor areas. Remember all those designers who said they didn't design their stuff for the little people? A LV bag doesn't look so desirable when it's hanging over a homeless person's grocery cart.

Ask the leftist and socialist Democrats and they will tell you that such organized theft is just the “community” calling out for “equity”. A poster above asked, once the real Communists take over such out of control US inner cities, will they continue to allow such mass crime to continue? The answer to that is to look at Communist China, do they allow such lawless in their cities. The answer to that is of course no. So what would occur in the dark age inner city communities is that the perpetrators of such crimes, that is if they were not shot by the Communist police would probably have two choices, either become a voluntary organ donor, or accept transportation to some place in darkest Africa where there are no stores for them to loot. Of course the high end companies who own and operate the stores being targeted have a way out, close their brink and mortar stores near inner-city “communities” and go 100% mail order as the vast majority of their legitimate customers with money would have no problem in making mail order purchases from them.

A "Looters will be shot" directive would stop looting instantly. But Progressive (communist) sheep regard breaking the law with impunity as reparations. So, let's see what happens if all supermarkets and drug stores close up shop in any particular city due to theft of merchandise. Will looters then expand their purview into the suburbs where homeowners have guns to protect themselves and their families and property?

I lived in San Francisco my entire adult life. Left three years ago for the better weather in Palm Springs. I’m ashamed that an English newspaper appears to be better at covering the local news than does the Bay Area media. This article mistakes one thing. The $950 amount needed to make a theft a felony is not a local San Francisco law. It is a state statute voted into law by the weak minded people of California. Still, these brazen thefts only happen in the big urban areas that have elected radicals as Distinct Attorneys.

These communist looters are here to seek and destroy! They do not help anyone but themselves. They run in mobs to intimidate and overpower the innocent, unimpeded by self control, much less by the law. If they really cared for others as themselves, they would devote their efforts to helping others, such as those devastated this very minute by the historic flooding which has overwhelmed the Great Northwest! The alphabets have ignored the plight of those vast areas changed by the floods forever! .....Apparently these lefty mobs and the beltway pols only get their 'news' reports from the sifting/spinning media political propaganda, as they all lust for their own publicity.

For those who do not know this, Walnut Creek is a very posh and expensive city. I do not even think there is a low income area there at all. We bought our first house there. We had to move to a less expensive area in the Bay Area after we sold. The crime is very low there. It is a very blue city too. I have no doubt this has shook them up.

Looting is also know as ‘theft’ and when you bring a weapon it’s called armed robbery. This is not about racial grievances or protest. This is about the entitlement to criminal activity handed over to minorities by Democrats who feel forced to accept it.

Akron, Ohio—Akron police have investigated the theft of all kinds of valuables over the years, but for the first time in anyone’s memory, detectives are trying to find out who stole a bridge. At one time, the pedestrian bridge was along the Little Cuyahoga River in Middlebury Run Park, which sits in the shadow of Goodyear World Headquarters on Akron’s East End. However, the complete 58-foot long span was removed from the park as part of a wetlands restoration project and moved to a field along Seiberling Street.(Snip)Investigators say they are not sure what the crooks plan to do with the bridge.

Approximately 168,000 of the 800,000 U.S. COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented by the Covid vaccines, a new analysis finds. The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) analyzed Covid death data in the U.S., and found that tens-of-thousands of deaths over the past six months could have been prevented if people had gotten vaccinated. They used the death rate among fully vaccinated people—who do occasionally die from the virus despite the overall rarity—and calculated how many unvaccinated people would have lived if they had received the jab. September and October were especially brutal, with a combined 92,800 deaths deemed preventable.

The cooling sensation of an alcohol swab on your upper bicep is a cue for what’s about to come next: the injection of a needle that delivers a dose of vaccine. More than 69% of Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and as a bandage is applied to your arm, you are part of the club. Whether you’re getting your first shot, a second dose or a booster, you’re likely to experience some side effects. They may be inconvenient, and they certainly can be uncomfortable. But immunologists and virologists say they are to be expected. And you might even welcome them.

Full disclosure: I despise Steven Spielberg movies and dislike both Romeo and Juliet and the 1961 West Side Story (WSS) movie. For that reason, I take particular delight in noting that Steven Spielberg's remake of WSS may have enthralled critics, but no one is rushing to see it. And no wonder, given that it's so darn woke that parts of it are in a language most Americans don't speak, but Spielberg refused to include subtitles. Let me quickly get through my biases. I hate Steven Spielberg movies because I find them overblown, predictable, and incredibly boring. I also dislike the way he presents children.

Lawmakers can't agree on how to save college students from years of stifling loan debt. It's an ideological tug-of-war that can't end soon enough for millions of Americans. It's also a fight that's personal for many congressional staffers who work under those members, and who are still paying off the bills for their own educations — with some having paid over decades.An Insider analysis of congressional financial disclosures for 2020 and 2021 found that Congress itself was profoundly affected: About 360 high-ranking staffers owed money on student loans. Dozens of these staffers either work for House or Senate leadership,

A recent survey finds that 67% of vaccinated Americans believe the unvaccinated should pay a “COVID tax” to cover businesses’ pandemic safety expenses, but most business owners and the unvaccinated themselves don’t believe in such fees. Skynova, an invoicing software for small businesses, conducted the digital survey of 1,075 Americans. The firm’s project manager, Joe Mercurio, said the survey reflects a “consensus among people … that unvaccinated people should have to pay precautionary COVID-19 fees when visiting a business” to help cover the costs of personal protective equipment and other materials.(Snip)Higher prices for unvaccinated consumers would amount to “a new tax” to help business owners cover the $132

President Joe Biden's nominee for the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Senate "gender advisers" for combat troops are critical to the United States' success, a position some veterans say is nothing more than a left-wing initiative that distracts from the military's core duties. The revelation came during a Dec. 8 exchange with Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.), who asked how Adm. Christopher Grady intends to implement "women, peace, and security" legislation within the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "The role of a gender adviser is a way to attack a very significant issue, and if confirmed

More than 1,500 previously classified JFK assassination files have today been made public, including documents about killer Lee Harvey Oswald's contact with a KGB agent two months before the shooting. The files were released at noon on Wednesday by the National Archives, after months of delays by Biden who had promised to make them public but then stalled, claiming COVID backlogs was the reason. Not all of them are now public - some are still being held back for further review by the NSA until next December, a move that has been slammed by members of Kennedy's family.

President Joe Biden headlined the Democratic National Committee's glamorous holiday party on Tuesday night, giving a speech in which he touted his administration's agenda and railed against Republican objection to Democrats' voting rights legislation.He said the GOP was following Donald Trump 'into the abyss' by fueling baseless claims the 2020 election was rigged.'As Democrats, we stand for the people,' his VP Kamala Harris said in her own speech. 'And we will fight for the people.' Hours after speaking to a 400-person audience full of top Democrats and DNC donors the president struck a more somber tone in a statement memorializing the 800,000 Americans who have died of COVID-19 so far.

Experts have pushed back against claims that this weekend’s tragic tornadoes in Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee can be clearly linked to manmade climate change. (snip) professor and climate economist Richard S.J. Tol of the University of Sussex explained why it is so difficult to connect weather events on the scale of a tornado to shifts in the Earth’s climate. “Tornadoes are small, rarely more than 3 kilometers in diameter. The most advanced climate models, however, cannot see things that are smaller than 9 by 9 km. Climate models can therefore tell us very little about tornadoes,” (snip) “Data are not great, but suggest that there is no upward or downward trend
