Clean up San Francisco’s streets,
tourist industry pleads

San Francisco Chronicle, by Heather Knight

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/18/2018 4:45:39 AM

As president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors bureau, Joe D’Alessandro’s job is to promote San Francisco. You’d think he’d be hyping the city’s gorgeous vistas, top-notch restaurants and glorious museums. Instead, he’s getting honest. Sure, San Francisco has great facets worthy of postcards and travel books, but it also has a worsening underbelly that D’Alessandro says he can no longer gloss over. People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces. The threatening behavior of some people who appear either mentally ill or high. Petty theft. “The streets are

SF is truly endangering not only its tourism industry (which it needs if it is going to be able to afford to continue to provide services for the homeless) but it is going to lose its world class fine arts community. btw, Not only are the tourist areas becoming increasingly dirty and unpleasant, I shudder to think of especially foreign visitors who accidentally wander from the heavily touristed areas.

The fundamental problem is the tolerance of bums---- aggressive bums--- on the streets.

Everyone that lives there is afraid to speak the truth because of the Left-PC police. It is not a beautiful city if there are clouds of feces-dust blown around, and inadequately treated mentally ill threatening you every block.

So they want to slap a Mr. Happy face on a degenerate area to fool people into walking into danger unprepared.

They aren´t ready to deal with the real problems they face because addicts and criminals are people too!

So they will figure out how to paper over the problems in an authentically liberal way. That is, do things that sound "right" but don´t actually fix the problem.

No matter how many times the Left is forced to face the results of their insane policies, they refuse to see that THEY are the cause of the problem.

Since the local government is mentally ill, they would not be able to recognize the mentally ill that live there. I would guess there is a big exodus going on right now and they are keeping it under wraps. When home and apartment prices begin to fall, somebody will figure it out, maybe. Too bad, it was once a beautiful city.

Marxism is responsible for many sins and crimes but it has continued to gather armies of fools who believe it produces fairness, equality, etc.

Any examination of Marxism reveals that it targeted hereditary and/or earned wealth, status, political power and simply hijacked the palace while installing even more guns, moats, guards and fences to protect the elite.

Marxists cannot imprison or slaughter the masses, at least in the West, so they opt for the next best thing (in their minds) which is the ruination of society by littering it with vagrants, illegals, drug addicts and others living like animals.

Incredibly, there are still many who believe that transients have rights...that they even have ´addresses´ and should be protected from removal, displacement, etc. Sheer madness. Unless, of course, you´re a self-appointed elite engaged in the lucrative humanitarian con game.

I think the most disgusting thing about it is the residents themselves and those that work there. They´re so terrified of the PC thugs they won´t open their mouths to say ENOUGH!

It´s like the people in fly-over country allowing this scum to come onto their property and turning it into a sewer with no response. That AIN´T gonna happen. You have to admit though, it´s nice of San Franfreako to keep the loons there instead of near my piece of America.

Anyway, Michael Savage has been talking about how filthy the streets are now. I won´t go there anymore. I also heard there are roving criminals who break car windows everywhere and steal anything they can find. It happens in even the nicer areas and the police can´t do anything to stop (or even slow) the problem.

A large part of the problem is that the Feds have forced us to take millions of illegals, and they are a huge voting block here in CA.
Pelosi is owned by China, but she takes Cartel money that $millions of are being funneled into our political system, overwhelming the citizens of the state.

I lived and worked in SF from 1982 to 1997. I watched the exodus of insurance companies, banking centers, etc. under Feinstein. I watched as parking spaces were actively done away with "for the good" of the city. I watched as the drug addicted, homeless, and losers of every stripe flocked to the city for the benefits they could get. I moved 9 miles south, and now watch from afar.

Currently? The streets are completely torn up and in far worse condition than what I´ve encountered in the third-world. The stench of the place on warm days rivals what you´d expect in India. At night you can head to the Mission District and watch the roving prostitutes transported in from East Bay, because SF doesn´t bother to prosecute any longer. The hookers, too, relieve themselves on the street. Zip on down to Ocean Beach after dark and be attacked by gangs. Shop in Union Square and be screamed at by any number of mentally ill/drugged/drunk, filthy, reeking homeless who have nothing to lose and are increasingly violent. Be sure to buy the insurance on your rental car for when the windows are smashed out and any belongings stolen. Cops won´t even bother to answer those calls. Oh, and try not to get run over in a crosswalk by the techy hipsters in their expensive cars who drive aggressively and with little skill. Expect gridlock traffic on weekends from the influx of Uber and Lyft cars which thrive in a market where the public transport is dirty, unsafe, and rarely on time.

And Heather Knight and the other employees of the leftist rag known as the Chronicle never seem to get that what´s wrong with the city is caused by their ilk.

As long as the liberal Democrats are in charge of San Francisco the nasty streets situation will only get worse. As the people who are involved in making the streets nasty are a favored Democrat identity based constituency group, so the Democrats will never cross them.

My family lived in Modesto back in the early to mid sixties. My dad had a good friend; a Chinese guy and his family who lived smack dab in the middle of Chinatown. It´s where I fell in love with Chinese food, real and VERY good Chinese food (Hot Fish Pot, right? Oh man). We´d go to visit all the time and my sister and I would walk the streets in Chinatown by ourselves, even at night being the only two white kids around. We´d go to the shops and get ginger candy, magic wooden boxes and everyone treated us like we were family. It was wonderful and safe and we couldn´t have cared less about race. Yo, millennials, THAT is what the United States was like before the left ruined it. That is what normal looked like pretty much everywhere. Color, race, differences just were not issues. As the city got idiotic with the Haight Ashbury nonsense, it became less fun to go, got less safe. Such a beautiful city once. I´m grateful I got to see it when it was truly wonderful.

Since the residents keep voting for aging hippies who believe im socialism, the city will never change.

The only way outsiders can force change is take your tourism and convention industries elsewhere and advertise WHY you are no longer doing business in SF and where you are taking your business.

This is a golden opportunity for larger cities with convention centers and lots of large hotels and savvy Chambers of Commerce, Travel organizations and the hotel industry to capitalize on SF´s woes to market their cities.

A major allure of SF for travelers and conventioneers from out side of SF and CA is you do not need to rent a car (like you have to in LA). Advertise that visitors to SF are taking their life in their hand if they walk the streets there.

It is amazing that the residents, mayor, city council and superintendents have no pride in their city, nor shame in its sickening condition.

A judge in the Southern District of New York threw out Friday the case former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros filed against the network in April of 2017. In his ruling, U.S. District Court Judge George B.

The White House has continued its communications crackdown to control the number of embarrassing leaks after a junior aide was reportedly discovered to have taped President Donald Trump´s meetings. The aide was found to have played the recording to impress friends, several people familiar with the situation told The New York Times. The crackdown followed the embarrassing leak regarding Kelly Sadler, a communications aide, who reportedly made a disparaging comment regarding Sen. John McCain´s physical condition last week. The White House and Sadler did not deny the account. As part of an effort to curb negative media coverage, officials have

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, has been interviewed 147 times on broadcast and cable news shows overall in the past ten weeks, including 74 times on CNN, according to the conservative Media Research Center. And during this stretch on the air, and on Twitter and email, there have been times when the credibility of the 47-year-old attorney has been called into question by his critics, as he continues to be provided perhaps more airtime than any non-payroll person on cable news in recent memory. The most recent example of Avenatti arguably providing speculation as fact came after a May 3 NBC News

Media coverage of Hamas´s attacks on the Israeli border have been, as usual, a dumpster fire of idiocy and ignorance. Hamas itself now admits that "50 of the 62 martyrs" were card-carrying terrorists. One of the heads of Hamas just boasted to an interviewer: "This is not peaceful resistance." No facts or admissions will intrude on the media narrative, which is that Israel is diabolically slaughtering civilians because Israelis enjoy killing people. One of the tropes that is being repeated everywhere is this one, promoted here with complete credulity by the New York Times: International law allowed for the use of lethal

The Sea Is Rising, but Not
Because of Climate Change
Wall Street Journal, by Fred Singer    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/17/2018 4:44:13     Post Reply
Of all known and imagined consequences of climate change, many people fear sea-level rise most. But efforts to determine what causes seas to rise are marred by poor data and disagreements about methodology. The noted oceanographer Walter Munk referred to sea-level rise as an “enigma”; it has also been called a riddle and a puzzle. It is generally thought that sea-level rise accelerates mainly by thermal expansion of sea water, the so-called steric component. But by studying a very short time interval, it is possible to sidestep most of the complications, like “isostatic adjustment” of the shoreline (as continents rise after

Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Windsor, England - Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle at the royal wedding — stepping in after the father of the bride fell ill just days before the ceremony. Kensington Palace said Friday that Markle´s future father-in-law, the heir to the British throne, would walk the American actress down the aisle at St. George´s Chapel in Windsor for her wedding to Prince Harry. The palace says he "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way." (Tweet) The decision comes after feverish speculation about who would have the honor after the bride announced that her father,
