SAN FRANCISCO’S CORRUPTION, CRONYISM AND FAKE WOKE POLICIES KILLED THE CITY

Tourists blast San Francisco as ‘most depressing place I’ve ever seen’ after spotting grim scenes outside Airbnb

Tourist Jeremy Bernier, a software engineer from San Francisco, who had just arrived in the Tenderloin district claimed drug addicts gathered outside his Airbnb.

  • Jeremy Bernier, a software engineer, arrived in the Tenderloin neighborhood on Saturday and was aghast at what he saw
  • He posted on X, formerly Twitter, a photo of the drug addicts outside his rental
  • Bernier called the city an ’embarrassment’ and wanted someone to take accountability as he asked: ‘wtf is this and who the hell is in charge?’

A tourist visiting San Francisco’s Tenderloin district was aghast after seeing ‘drug addicts’ gathered outside his rental.

Jeremy Bernier, a software engineer, who just arrived in the neighborhood on Saturday, posted a picture on X, formerly Twitter, of a group he claimed to be drug addicts gathered outside his Airbnb.

Bernier described the city as the ‘most depressing place I’ve ever seen’ and went on to ask ‘wtf is this and who the hell is in charge of this city?’

‘So many drugged out people standing up while fully bent over with their head to the ground, taking what appears to be fentanyl,’ he added.

‘Tents everywhere, people passed out on sidewalks. This is worse than 3rd world countries. Such an embarrassment.’

The progressive Tenderloin downtown district, once known for its rich cultural history, trendy restaurants, galleries, museums, and nightlife, has deteriorated as homelessness and drug use ramp up in the Democratic-led city.

Though it wasn’t clear what brought Benier to the gritty city, he tried to see the silver lining after his first day travelling: ‘Happy to be here though, and looking forward to experiencing the tech capital!’

San Francisco faces private school construction boom as parents refuse to send their kids to public school because ‘they have been driven into the ground by the extreme left’

Expensive San Francisco private schools have plans to renovate their campuses and increase the number of students as parents grow outraged with the public school system.

The progressive Tenderloin downtown district, once known for its rich cultural history has deteriorated as homelessness and drug use ramp up in the Democratic-led city

The Tenderloin district is in the heart of San Francisco and near the Asian Art museum.

It’s just a few blocks from City Hall and the area includes part of the Compton Transgender Cultural District.

Robberies are up 14 percent so far this year in the Golden Gate City where mayor London Breed last month demanded cuts of 18 percent from next year’s police budget.

Reported deaths from drug overdoses reached 620 in the first nine months of the year, according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, up from 540 for the same period in 2020.

And the city stands to lose $200 million a year in revenue through its business exodus – which has seen major hotels and retailers flee the city center.

Retail stalwart Old Navy announced it would be shuttering its flagship store in the area last month, becoming the latest chain to exit the city.

Nordstrom also announced it would be closing all of its locations in the city.

In April, Whole Foods announced it was closing all their locations, with Anthropologie and Office Depot having also made the same decisions leading some analysts to predict that the city has entered a ‘doom-loop’ of permanent decline.

As crippling drug issues and widespread homeless problems continue to cause problems for the city, names like ‘garbage city,’ ‘ruined city,’ and ‘fallen city’ have surfaced.

Earlier this month, Britain’s Home Secretary Suella Braverman held up the city as an example of what could happen in the UK as she outlined plans to prevent charities handing tents to homeless people.

‘Unless we step in now to stop this, British cities will go the way of places in the US like San Francisco and Los Angeles, where weak policies have led to an explosion of crime, drug taking, and squalor,’ she wrote.

The city’s US attorney Ismail Ramsey announced a multi-agency ‘All Hand on Deck’ project on Thursday to tackle drug dealing in Tenderloin, admitting it had become ‘ground zero for drug tourism’.

He revealed that 50 kilograms of fentanyl have been seized from the district’s streets in the last four months, nearly double the amount in the same period last year and enough to create 20 million lethal overdoses.

‘Our drug crisis has been fueled in part because selling fentanyl has become a lucrative vocation for people who have found our neighborhoods, and principally the Tenderloin District, to be a convenient and risk-free marketplace,’ he said.

It is a reality all too apparent to residents who have to live and work in the city.

Tents and homeless encampments line the streets of downtown Tenderloin. One TikToker wrote: ‘The tenderloin was rough but it was never like this, never, and I was born and raised here so this is not the same scene pre-pandemic’

Earlier this year a homeless woman was pictured giving birth on a sidewalk in Tenderloin as pedestrians wandered past.

The baby lay on the sidewalk, crying, covered in the mess of its birth until its mother reached out to scoop it up with a piece of fabric.

‘This is overwhelming and mentally draining,’ wrote the TikToker.

‘Not to mention the dangers of the unpredictable nature of this environment.

‘The tenderloin was rough but it was never like this, never, and I was born and raised here so this is not the same scene pre-pandemic.

‘Imagine the children and senior population having to navigate this, it’s definitely terrifying.’

TikToker ‘Freqmeek,’ a  life-long resident, filmed her walk to work through last month through the drug-ravaged streets that have made the city an international symbol for squalor and despair.

‘The anxiety we experience just traveling to work daily in the Tenderloin is unbelievable,’ she wrote.

‘There are so many concerns and protections in place for drug users and homeless people but what about the working class that have to pray that they make it to and from work in this environment.

‘These are real dangers faced every single day just to be able to provide for your family.’

China’s white lung syndrome now spreads to SECOND US state: Massachusetts follows Ohio in reporting wave of mystery pneumonia in children – as  Europe sees surge in cases and hospitalizations

Now MASSACHUSETTS says it's being hit by wave of 'white lung' pneumonia in children as

Dr John Kelley, from western Massachusetts, said his practice was seeing a lot of children coming in with pneumonia or suffering from a combination of RSV and other respiratory illnesses. Health officials in an Ohio county 30 miles outside Cincinnati said there had been 142 pediatric cases of pneumonia recorded in their area since August. An ‘ongoing investigation’ is underway into what triggered the wave of illnesses, but officials do not think it is a new respiratory disease. Patients have so far tested positive for mycoplasma pneumonia, a bacterial lung infection resistant to some antibiotics, strep and adenovirus, which are normally benign respiratory infections. Dr Clint Koenig, the county’s medical director (pictured), said: ‘We have seen hospitalizations [for child pneumonia] tick up in the last couple of weeks so we do ask parents to be vigilant. Our school districts have called in the outbreak starting roughly in August, but really picking up in mid to late October. We’ve also been noticing a lot of cases of kids being absent and the resulting diagnosis being pneumonia.’

The thrillingly scandalous lives of the 300 American heiresses who paid to wed impecunious Dukes, Earls and Viscounts and saved the aristocracy

The thrillingly scandalous lives of the 300 American heiresses who paid to wed impecunious

One entry reads: ‘Lord Arthur’s mother is a gorgon.’ ‘The dowager Marchioness has a liquor cabinet in her bed chamber, of which she takes full advantage before breakfast,’ reads another; while a third declares: ‘Lord Robert is rumoured to enjoy le vice Anglais’ – sadomasochism, to you and me. And so the entries go on, all contained within the New York subscription periodical, The Heiresses’s Guide. Launched in the 1870s, the Guide not only listed every member of the British peerage and their marital status, but titillating information about their sexual proclivities, and the characters and foibles of their relatives. Why? Because as the new hit TV series, The Buccaneers – based on Edith Wharton’s unfinished classic novel – shows in decadent detail, this was a time when English aristocrats were in high demand as marriage material for wealthy American girls and their socially ambitious families. So much so that a guidebook like this was essential reading for any young lady wanting to bag a blue blood.

It is Day Three since the odious Omid Scobie ‘s ‘Endgame’ hit shelves, revealing, in the Dutch version, the so-called royal ‘racists’. Since then we’ve seen a smug, unbothered Scobie insist that he never wrote those names in any draft, that their inclusion must have been the fault of translators. Here’s the thing: You can’t mistranslate something that was never there. How hubristic of Scobie, in a British morning show appearance on Thursday , to yet again insist that his manuscript never contained the names…
