Attention Nancy: San Francisco saw 150 percent increase in fentanyl-related deaths last year

Nancy Pelosi’s pinned tweet (as of Saturday afternoon):

“House Democrats have accomplished so much already. So far we have taken action to… Defend Americans’ access to affordable health care and prescription drugs.”

As reported by Fox News: The number of deaths from fentanyl overdoses in San Francisco jumped by nearly 150 percent last year, according to a report by the city’s public health department made public this week.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, 89 deaths in the city were attributed to fentanyl overdoses, up from 37 deaths in 2017. By comparison, 70 people died from prescription opioid overdoses and 60 deaths were attributed to heroin overdoses.

A preliminary report released in June attributed 57 deaths to fentanyl overdoses, but health officials told the Chronicle they had expected that figure to increase as the city medical examiner determined the cause of more deaths.

The city has experienced an uptick in fentanyl-related deaths since 2008, when five deaths were reported. In 2010, six deaths were attributed to the drug, which killed 22 people in 2016.

It’s not a huge surprise to see this, although it’s certainly disappointing and sad to have lost this many lives in the city,” Dr. Phillip Coffin, the director of substance use research for the San Francisco Department of Public Health, told the Chronicle. “Unfortunately, there is no locality that can withstand the introduction of fentanyl without some increase in mortality.”

In its legal form, fentanyl is used to treat patients recovering from surgery. However, the synthetic drug is often mixed with other drugs like heroin and cocaine in powder form for those looking to get high, KTVU reported in June.

“In San Francisco, that’s how fentanyl came to us. In counterfeit pills at first a few years ago. At this point it is its own drug supply,” Kristen Marshall from the Drug Overdose Prevention & Education Project told the station.

Fentanyl is a highly addictive opiate that is 100 times more potent than other prescription opioids like morphine, according to the paper.

Like San Franciso, London has become a sh*t-hole

Once upon a time, public defecation used to be more of a problem in non-European Third World countries.

No more.

Although public defecation is still a problem in Third World countries, the sight of human feces in streets has become a major problem in liberal utopias like San Francisco.

See “San Francisco goes down the toilet with public defecation” and “Liberal utopia of San Francisco: People are pooping more than ever on the streets of San Francisco

The sh*t has now hit London, England.

Not coincidentally, like San Francisco, London is governed by a “progressive” mayor — Sadiq Khan, a social democrat who compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler (“European dictators of the 1930s and 40s”).

Signs are going up in London telling people not to sh*t in the streets. A City of Westminster Clean Streets sign posted to Twitter reads (Summit News):

This area is being monitored for street fouling. Anyone urinating or defecating may be subject to arrest.

In the video below, Paul Joseph Watson points out that London literally is overflowing with sh*t because the city, with a population of almost 9 million, has outgrown its sewage system that was originally built for a city of 2.5 million.

Hollyweird actress Marcia Cross has anal cancer from same STD as husband’s throat cancer

Anal cancer is an uncommon malignancy that starts in the anus — the opening at the end of the rectum. The American Cancer Society estimates that 8,200 cases of anal cancer would be diagnosed in 2017 and about 1,100 deaths a year from anal cancer. The 5-year survival rate following diagnosis of anal cancer is 60% for men and 71% for women.

Most anal cancers (80%) are diagnosed in people who are over age 60. Prior to age 35, anal cancer is more common in men, with an incidence rate 6 times higher in single men as compared to marrried men. That is because receptive anal intercourse or sodomy is strongly related to anal cancer.

Another major risk factor for anal cancer is infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) that results in genital warts and is a cause of cervical cancer in women. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC), HPV is the most common STD in the U.S. and affects around 79 million Americans.

Eileen Reslen reports for Page Six that on June 5, 2019, actress Marcia Cross, 57, best known for her role in the ABC television series “Desperate Housewives,” appeared on “CBS This Morning” to give a health update more than a year after her anal cancer diagnosis.

Cross also divulged that her cancer is likely related to her 61-year-old husband Tom Mahoney’s cancer. Mahoney, a stockbroker, was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2009, years before Cross was diagnosed with anal cancer. Cross said that doctors told her the same type of HPV that triggered her husband’s throat cancer could cause cancer in the anus. Both Cross and Mahoney are in remission.

In other words, doctors believe that the sexually-transmitted HPV caused both Mahoney’s throat cancer and Cross’ subsequent anal cancer. Given the timing of the two cancers, Mahoney likely transmitted the HPV to Cross via anal intercourse.

Typical of the Left’s in-your-face defiance and utter lack-of-shame, Cross made her anal cancer into a virtue. She said she was able to get through her anal cancer diagnosis with the help of a group of girlfriends, whom she called her “Anal Angels”. She said:

“I know that there are people who are ashamed. You have cancer! Do you have to then also feel ashamed like you did something bad because it took up residence in your anus? I mean, come on, really. There’s enough on your plate. I kept saying if this doesn’t kill me, it’s the best thing that could’ve ever happened because the experience of being loved like that? It blew my mind.”

Although anal sex is frequently assumed to be confined to the homoexual male population, it has become more “popular” among heterosexual couples under 45. According to a CDC report, “Sexual Behavior, Sexual Attraction and Sexual Identity in the United States,” which polled thousands of people between the ages of 15 and 44 from 2006 through 2008, as many as 44% of straight men and 36% of straight women admitted to having had anal sex at least once in their lives.

Hugo Schwyzer, a professor gender studies and history at Pasadena City College, maintains that “butt sex,” which he extols as “the most selfless of common sexual acts” given the amount of pain the “bottoming” partner endures in its practice, is on the rise due to its frequent appearance in both heterosexual porn and mainstream media as well as an increased pressure from heterosexual male partners. Schwyzer cited several sources casting doubt on how pleasurable anal sex is for women.

Put simply, the anus is not biologically designed to be penetrated.

As I explained in my 2013 post, “Medical consequences of homosexual sexual behaviors“:

The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In contrast, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an “exit-only” passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic. Moreover, the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids.

Furthermore, ejaculate has components that are immunosuppressive, designed to allow the sperm to evade the immune defenses of the female. The fragility of the anus and rectum, along with the immunosuppressive effect of ejaculate, make anal-genital intercourse a most efficient manner of transmitting HIV and other infections. Below is a list of diseases found with extraordinary frequency among male homosexual practitioners as a result of anal intercourse. Sexual transmission of some of these diseases is so rare in the exclusively heterosexual population as to be virtually unknown. Lesbians are also at higher risk for these STDs:

  • Anal cancer
  • Chlamydia trachomatis
  • Cryptosporidium
  • Giardia lamblia
  • Herpes simplex virus
  • Human immunodeficiency virus
  • Human papilloma virus (HPV)
  • Isospora belli
  • Microsporidia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Viral hepatitis types B & C
  • Syphilis: gay men contracted syphilis at 3 to 4 times the rate of heterosexuals.
  • HIV/AIDS: A study based upon statistics from 1986 through 1990 estimated that 20-year-old gay men had a 50% chance of becoming HIV positive by age 55. As of June 2001, nearly 64% of men with AIDS were men who have had sex with men, i.e., anal sex.

Dr. Drew: Bubonic plague is likely already in Los Angeles

The filthy conditions of Democrat-run U.S. cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles are so alarming that even the New York Times‘ opinion columnist has acknowledged that fact in a May 22 op/ed, “America’s Cities Are Unlivable. Blame Wealthy Liberals”.

On May 23, the Calcutta-like conditions of Los Angeles — California’s biggest city and the second largest U.S. city in population, numbering 4 million — prompted famous TV addiction medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky to predict a major infectious disease epidemic this summer.

See “New York Times admits Democrat-run cities are unlivable. Dr. Drew predicts major epidemic in filthy Los Angeles this summer

A week later, after news that an L.A. police officer had contracted typhoid fever, a rare and life-threatening illness that fewer than 350 Americans contract each year, Dr. Drew repeated his prediction, saying that he believes bubonic plague — a pandemic that killed tens of millions of people during the 14th century – “likely” is already present in Los Angeles.

Last Thursday night, May 30, 2019, on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Dr. Drew said:

“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now.

We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, (and) rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down. We have a typhus outbreak last summer; we’ll have a typhus outbreak this summer. I’m hearing from experts that bubonic plague is likely already here…. And finally, we have this fecal-group contamination, which is typhoid fever — three cases, one confirmed, probably three.

This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I live in a city where this is not Third World. This is medieval. Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk. And God forbid…if measles gets in, I just have an image of myself on my knees in the gutter attending to people. This summer is likely to be a very profound problem….

[Responding to host Laura Ingraham about the flood of illegals with diseases pouring across the border,] the government is somehow insisting that housing is the problem when in fact we have chronic mental illness, we have addiction, we have people who don’t want to leave the streets. They literally won’t take the housing if we give it to them. And that’s the population that’s vulnerable, and is going to get so ill this summer. It scares me for their well-being….

This is reckless negligence [on the part of the city government]. This is disgusting. We have to have a solution to this.”

Go to FoxNews for the video of Dr. Drew.

The Los Angeles city government consists of:

  • Mayor Eric Garcetti, Democrat.
  • City Attorney Mike Feuer, Democrat.
  • City Controller Ron Galperin, Democrat.
  • City Council: 14 of the 15 City Council members are Democrats (the remaining member is Republican).

CDC and NY Rockland County identify ‘people from overseas’ as source of measles resurgence

In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control believed measles to have been eradicated in the United States.

Beginning in 2008, however, cases began to climb. In 2014, the number of measles exploded to over 600, more than all reported cases between 2009 and 2013. The CDC called it a 20-year high.

On March 26, 2019, New York’s Rockland County was the first in the U.S. to declare a medical martial law via an executive order by county executive and former police officer Ed Day, banning from public places and even threatening to imprison children who were not vaccinated against measles.

Less than 2 weeks later, on April 9, 2019, New York City declared a “public health emergency” of an active outbreak of measles in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Mandatory measles vaccination was ordered for all residents and workers in Williamsburg. Those who fail to be vaccinated within 48 hours of the order committed a misdeamernor in violation of §3.05of the NYC Health Code, for which they would be “subject to civil and/or criminal fines, forfeitures and penalties, including imprisonment.”

The media and public sentiments blame “anti-vaxxers” for the resurgence of measles. But we have good reasons to suspect the source to be illegal aliens, given reports of the diseases they carry. Indeed, none other than the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Rockland County executive Ed Day admitted this, although they used the euphemisms of “people from overseas” and “foreign travelers”.

To begin, in 2015, the CDC attributed an outbreak of measles in Disney theme parks to a person from “overseas”. As reported by Breitbart, Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC said:

“We don’t know exactly how this outbreak started but we do think it was likely a person infected with measles overseas. We assume that someone got infected with measles overseas, visited Disneyland park, and spread the disease to others.”

More recently, in a Fox News video, Rockland County executive Ed Day also identified “people from overseas” as the source of the measles outbreak. Day was asked by the Fox News reporter why he took the step to declare a medical state-of-emergency. Day answered:

“I took the step because we’ve been battling this for six months. Six months ago, we had seven infected individuals come from overseas to the local area in Rockland County.

In the video below, Day once again identified the seven infected “travelers” as the source of the measles outbreak:

Last year, not just one, but seven unvaccinated travelers diagnosed with measles came into our county between October 1 and October 17. Led to 153 confirmed cases and this is the longest outbreak in the U.S. due to measles — a disease that was officially eradicated in 2000.”

New York Times admits Democrat-run cities are unlivable. Dr. Drew predicts major epidemic in filthy Los Angeles this summer

The filthy conditions of Democrat-run U.S. cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles are so alarming that even the New York Times is acknowledging that fact.

On May 22, 2019, the New York Times published an op/ed, “America’s Cities Are Unlivable. Blame Wealthy Liberals,” by the paper’s opinion columnist Farhad Manjoo, calling “progressives” hypocrites for abandoning “progressive values in their own backyards”. (H/t FOTM reader Big Lug)

Manjoo writes:

When the cost of living is taken into account, billionaire-brimming California ranks as the most poverty-stricken state, with a fifth of the population struggling to get by. Since 2010, migration out of California has surged.

The basic problem is the steady collapse of livability. Across my home state, traffic and transportation is a developing-world nightmare. Child care and education seem impossible for all but the wealthiest. The problems of affordable housing and homelessness have surpassed all superlatives — what was a crisis is now an emergency that feels like a dystopian showcase of American inequality….

Homeless man defecates in a S.F. street

Manjoo then describes the “unlivable” conditions in San Francisco, which he calls “Nancy Pelosi’s city”. It’s a city of stark contrasts of great wealth and squalor, where one of every 11,600 residents is a billionaire, yet “the streets there are a plague of garbage and needles and feces,” and homeless veterans eke out a living surviving on trash from billionaires’ mansions. But the city’s heartless rich actually are crowdfunding a legal effort against a proposed homeless shelter by claiming the shelter to be an environmental hazard.

400 miles south of San Francisco is the Democrat-run and equally unlivable Los Angeles — California’s biggest city and the second largest U.S. city in population, numbering 4 million.

A news video from NBC4 LA describes the atrocious conditions in Los Angeles (h/t DCG’s “Liberal utopia of Los Angeles: Rotting trash and rat infestation fuels health concerns“):

  • Hundreds of filthy homeless encampments where people live in piles of garbage.
  • Streets even in downtown L.A. littered with piles of rotting garbage uncollected in weeks, even months, infested with rats and disease-carrier fleas.
  • Orkin pest control ranks L.A. as the second most rat-infested city in the U.S. (Atlanta, Georgia is the first), but the L.A. city government has no program, like that in New York city and Washington, DC, to control the ever-growing rat population.
  • Last fall, fleas infected with typhus were found on rescue dogs in L.A. animal shelters.

The Calcutta-like conditions of Los Angeles prompted famous TV addiction medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky to predict a major infectious disease epidemic this summer, putting at risk thousands of lives.

On Thursday, May 23, on Fox News Radio’s Brian Kilmeade Show, Dr. Pinsky said:

I live in the great state of California, the utopia that is California, which is a nightmare. I want to give you a prediction here. There will be a major infectious disease epidemic this summer in Los Angeles.

We have tens and tens of thousands of people living in tents. Horrible conditions. Sanitation. Rats have taken over the city. We’re the only city in the country, Los Angeles, without a rodent control program. We have multiple rodent-borne, flea-borne illnesses, plague, typhus. We’re gonna have louse-borne illness. If measles breaks into that population, we have tuberculosis exploding. Literally, our politicians are like Nero. It’s worse than Nero.

It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen in my life. I feel like I’m on a train track waving at the train and the train is going to go off the bridge. The bridge is out.

Here’s what I want to do, I want to take away qualified immunity from the politicians so we can go after them for reckless negligence.

The Los Angeles city government consists of:

  • Mayor Eric Garcetti, Democrat.
  • City Attorney Mike Feuer, Democrat.
  • City Controller Ron Galperin, Democrat.
  • City Council: 14 of the 15 City Council members are Democrat (the remaining member is Republican).

Measles Vaccination: NYC sues 12 for defying mandatory vaccination; Times of Israel fakes photo of baby with measles

On March 26, 2019, New York’s Rockland County was the first in the U.S. to declare a medical martial law via an executive order by county executive and former police officer Ed Day, banning from public places and even threatening to imprison children who were not vaccinated against measles.

Days later, sanity returned when the state’s Supreme Court ruled in favor of parents who challenged the medical state-of-emergency in court. Acting Supreme Court Justice Rolf Thorsen ruled that the ban cannot be enforced and ordered that all children affected by the ban be immediately returned to school and welcomed in public spaces. Thorsen also noted that 166 measles cases in a county population of 330,000 over six months doesn’t constitute an “epidemic” meriting an emergency declaration.

But the state Supreme Court’s ruling didn’t stop New York City (NYC) from doing exactly what Rockland County had done — declaring a medical state-of-emergency.

On April 9, 2019, NYC Commissioner of Health Oxiris Barbot, M.D., declared a “public health emergency” of “an active outbreak of measles” in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York (zip codes 11205, 11206, 11221 and 11249). According to Barbot, “Since September 2018, more than 250 cases of measles have been documented among people living in Williamsburg and that number continues to grow as new cases are still occurring”. (Read Barbot’s order here.)

Barbot ordered mandatory measles vaccination for all residents of Williamsburg.

Her Order specified that all persons, including children older than six months of age, who live, work or reside within the 11205, 11206, 11221 and/or 11249 zip codes and who had not received the MMR vaccine within 48 hours of the Order must be vaccinated against measles “unless such person can demonstrate immunity to the disease or document to the satisfaction of the Department that he or she should be medically exempt from this requirement”.  Failure to comply with the Order is a misdeamenor and violation of §3.05of the NYC Health Code, “for which you may be subject to civil and/or criminal fines, forfeitures and penalties, including imprisonment.”

On April 27, 2019, Activist Post reports that 12 people in Williamsburg were issued civil summonses for not complying with the mandatory measles vaccination order. They must attend a hearing and face a fine of up to $1,000 if found to be noncompliant.

A civil summons is a legal document informing someone that a lawsuit has been filed against him or her, and that a response is required by a set date and time. The document must be served by an officer of the court or an authorized process server.

Meanwhile, Gary King of 153News.net discovered that The Times of Israel engaged in deception in a November 1, 2018 news report on the Israeli Health Ministry considering banning unvaccinated children from schools because of the death from measles of an 18-month-old infant, the “first such incident in 15 years”.

This is the heartbreaking pic that The Times of Israel used for the article:

Note that the caption of the pic says:

Illustrative: Newborn baby suffering from measles. (iStock by Getty Images/andriano_cz)

The only problem is this: As explained by King’s video (below), the actual iStock image is of a healthy newborn baby, to which The Times of Israel photoshopped fake digital measles.

If you have truth on your side, why is there the need to lie?

Record high: 1 in 4 U.S. adults had no sex in a year

Something interesting is happening in America.

Fox News reports, March 30, 2019, that the latest data from the General Social Survey found that the number of American adults who said they have not had sex in the past year hit a record high in 2018 — 23% or nearly 1 in 4 adults.

The phenomenon is especially notable among young men.

Since 2008, the percentage of men under 30 reporting no sex had nearly tripled to 28%, compared with an 8% increase reported by women in the same age bracket. 18% of women between the ages of 18 and 30 reported no sex in the past year.

San Diego State University psychology professor Jean Twenge pretends to know why:

  • “There are more people in their twenties who don’t have a live-in partner. So under those circumstances, I think less sex is going to happen.”
  • A decline in the number of young men in the labor force may be the reason. The survey showed that 54% of unemployed Americans did not have a steady relationship versus 32% of employed Americans.
  • Young men are more likely to live with their parents than young women: “When you’re living at home it’s probably harder to bring sexual partners into your bedroom.”
  • There are “more things to do at 10 o’clock at night than there were 20 years ago” — “Streaming video, social media, console games, everything else.”

What Professor Twenge omits is another reason: Sex is risky, given the fact that, along with other bugs, sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) increasingly are resistant to antibiotics.

A recent article in Medium recounts how female urinary tract infection (UTI) has become antibiotic-resistant, with the emergence of “a particularly scary strain of drug-resistant UTI.” If left untreated, UTI can move to the kidneys and, on rare occasions, can even turn deadly.

One woman, Carole Wilson, 61, has had a chronic UTI for 17 months. First diagnosed with UTI in December 2017, Wilson has had 56 courses of antibiotics. She worries that if she catches another type of bacterial infection, like pneumonia, doctors won’t have any antibiotics to treat it. But if she doesn’t continuously treat the UTI, she’s at a high risk for complications like sepsis.

UTI is believed to be caused by gut bacteria like E. coli entering the bladder. While not categorized as an STD, anything that results in bacteria coming into contact with the urethra, like sex, increases risk. As WebMD explains:

Women may be especially prone to UTIs because they have shorter urethras, which allow bacteria quick access to the bladder. Having sex can introduce bacteria into the urinary tract, too.

CDC: 1 out of 7 ‘transgender women’ have HIV

In past years, the federal government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published on “transgender people” being “at higher risk” for HIV — especially “transgender women”, i.e., men who identify as women, and black “transgenders”. CDC defines “transgender people” as “people whose gender identity or expression is different from their sex assigned at birth” and “gender identity” as a “person’s internal understanding of their own gender.”

According to the latest CDC publication, an April 2019 fact-sheet on “HIV and Transgender People“:

  • As many as 14% of U.S. “transgender women” have HIV.
  • A vast majority of the 2,351 transgender people in the U.S. diagnosed with HIV in the years 2009-2014 were “transgender women”:
    • 84% (N=1,974) of transgenders with HIV are “transgender women”, i.e., biological males.
    • 15.35% (N=361) of transgenders with HIV are “transgender men”, i.e., biological females.
  • As many as 44% of black “transgender women” have HIV, the highest percentage among all “transgender women”.
  • Blacks also make up a majority of “transgenders” with HIV:
    • 58% of “transgender men” with HIV.
    • 51% of “transgender women” with HIV.

A recent study by a team of four CDC scientists reinforces and confirms the CDC fact sheet.

The scientists published their findings in “Estimating the Prevalence of HIV and Sexual Behaviors Among the US Transgender Population: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis, 2006-2017,” American Journal of Public Health, Nov. 29, 2018. Below is the Abstract of the article:

Transgender women (transwomen) in the United States have been shown to have high HIV risk with Black and Hispanic transwomen being particularly vulnerable. Growing research on transgender men (transmen) also shows increased HIV risk and burden, although not as much is known for this transgender population. […]

We reviewed 88 studies, the majority of which were cross-sectional surveys. Overall laboratory-confirmed estimated prevalence of HIV infection was 9.2% (95% confidence interval [CI] = 6.0%, 13.7%; κ = 24). Among transwomen and transmen, HIV infection prevalence estimates were 14.1% (95% CI = 8.7%, 22.2%; κ = 13) and 3.2% (95% CI = 1.4%, 7.1%; κ = 8), respectively. Self-reported HIV infection was 16.1% (95% CI = 12.0%, 21.2%; κ = 44), 21.0% (95% CI = 15.9%, 27.2%; κ = 30), and 1.2% (95% CI = 0.4%, 3.1%; κ = 7) for overall, transwomen, and transmen, respectively. HIV infection estimates were highest among Blacks (44.2%; 95% CI = 23.2%, 67.5%; κ = 4). Overall, participation in sex work was 31.0% (95% CI = 23.9%, 39.0%; κ = 39). Transwomen (37.9%; 95% CI = 29.0%, 47.7%; κ = 29) reported higher participation in sex work than transmen (13.1%; 95% CI = 6.6%, 24.3%; κ = 10; P = .001).
