Closing Hotels and Bankrupt Malls: San
Francisco Is on the Precipice of the Abyss

Original Article

San Francisco may not be irretrievably lost as a viable metropolis — yet. But its status as one of America’s great cities is gone and it’s hard to see how the once-golden city can return to its dazzling glory as a center of art, architecture, and commerce. It’s not unprecedented in America. St. Louis, Cleveland, Buffalo — all were once thriving cities. All have since lost at least half their population, and those who remain have failed to regenerate the vibrancy, the energy of the early to mid-20th century. But what’s truly shocking about the demise of San Francisco has been the speed at which the city has fallen

The homeless - - the looters - - the welfare cheats - - the carjackers - - the violent leftists - - they all deserve a city of their own. San Francisco is their chosen home - - and we all should applaud its transition.

Why aren't the city, progenitors alarmed at this and doing everything they can to halt the city's economic and social collapse? The only credible answer is that this is what they WANT to happen.

In order to change the direction the City Leaders would have to admit they were wrong, and that just won't happen in a Progressive Democrat city. The homeless problem will remain a problem until they figure out how to make it into a program that will be a massive new government department benefiting large numbers of people (not the homeless, mind you) and pad the pockets of donors. It's never to solve the problem but how it can be used to benefit Democrat politicians grow the size and scope of government.

Why is it that I don't give one #$%*@! rip about this headline? Does anybody? The locals of San Fran have been slowly and systematically destroying their environs since the flower children showed up in Haight-Ashbury. You can't say they are ignorant or don't know any better: they have some of the highest IQs in the country living there. Silicon Valley and Stanford are not that far away. So, it's not an issue of money or brains; it's an issue of blind belief in leftist ideas that have never worked. It's an issue of arrogance, disdain for the rest of their fellow citizens, and the Poimpeii-ish idea that their wealth and beauty would remain in perpetuity. It's a refusal to believe in historical precedent. So, most likely, the place won't recover until it's washed out to sea and rebuilt. I won't cry any tears because they embraced this disaster, voted for it, nurtured it, and bragged about it. Thousands of lives destroyed, many citizens losing their livelihoods, families having to relocate to save their children --- San Fran is not a candidate for pity in any form. Like a stubborn, rebellious kid, we need to let them live with the abominable decisions they've made.

Former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday criticized former President Donald Trump's position on abortion and the national debt, accusing his old boss of drifting away from conservative principles. "Look, in 2016, Donald Trump promised to govern as a conservative," Pence said in an interview with NBC News’ Chuck Todd to air in full Sunday on “Meet the Press.” "But he makes no such promise today. Not only has he been walking away from a clear commitment to the right to life, but, look, we have a national debt the size of our nation’s economy. "Donald Trump’s position on the national debt is identical to Joe Biden’s," he said.

Donald Trump “was” his friend, President Biden is a “disaster” and Democratic mega-donor George Soros is a “puppet master,” former Vice President Mike Pence said during an exclusive interview with The Post. Pence, 64, who entered an increasingly crowded 2024 GOP presidential primary race this week, gave candid answers when asked for fast-take reactions to names in the news. Some elicited quick responses, while others took longer, such as when he asked about Hunter Biden. “Time to answer questions,” he finally said, after ruminating for nearly a minute. Other responses came much more quickly, such as when he was presented with Bud Light. “Not anymore,” Pence said.

Opposition is in full swing to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ on-field ceremony honoring the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an organization of “drag nuns” that the Catholic League calls an anti-Catholic hate group. Thousands of Catholics, other Christians, and even some people of the Jewish faith gathered in a parking lot near the Dodgers’ stadium on Friday afternoon to pray ahead of the game. Later, the religious groups marched to Dodger Stadium, shutting down one entryway on Vin Scully Avenue. Weeks of momentous opposition led to the drag nuns being announced on-field to a mostly empty stadium, while receiving some boos from baseball fans in attendance.

Chief climate correspondent Bill Weir portrayed the young people as the heroes of a movie where they attempt to fend off the Republican-controlled government, despite admitting that the lawsuit would not change anything even if the judge ruled in favor of the plaintiffs. The lawsuit merely singled out Montana Republicans and blamed them for the existence of fossil fuel. CNN called it “fascinating” and “such a great story.” The case hinged on the following clause in the Montana state constitution: “The state shall maintain and improve a clean and healthful environment

A hypothetical 2024 poll shows that former President Donald Trump is tied with President Joe Biden in Michigan, a state the Republican won in 2016 but lost in 2020, in a hypothetical general election matchup. The EPIC-MRA poll, released Friday morning, shows Biden and Trump in a dead heat in the Wolverine State at 44 percent apiece. Another 12 percent are either undecided or refused to answer. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) performs slightly better in a hypothetical head-to-head with the 80-year-old Biden, leading 45 percent to 44 percent. In that matchup, 11 percent of the poll participants are undecided. Trump narrowly won Michigan over twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton

One of the great frustrations I have with most of the Republican candidates for president, especially including Donald Trump, is that they are talking about Donald Trump all the time. The 2020 election is in the rearview mirror, and the 2024 election should be–must be–about America’s future, not whether and how much Donald Trump is being persecuted by his enemies or betrayed by the people that he hired. Trump keeps talking about himself, and everybody else is either talking about Trump or knocking Ron DeSantis. Politically speaking there is a reason why they are doing this–they need to stand out from the pack and to knock down the top two candidates

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for making "false accusations" against former President Trump, after the House voted down a censure resolution against Schiff on Wednesday. In that vote, 20 Republicans rejected Luna’s censure resolution, in part because it recommended a $16 million fine against Schiff for telling "lies" about collusion between former President Trump and Russia, something that several investigations were never able to prove. Luna says that number is roughly half the cost of investigating Trump, probes that were never able to show collusion. One lawmaker, Rep. Tom Massie, R-Ky.,
