Liberal utopia of San Francisco: Car break-ins have tripled since 2010

Inside Edition reporter sets up car break-in decoy (which is broken into), has their company vehicle broken into as well.

Progressive-run San Francisco has many, many problems. I’ve chronicled many of them on our site. See the following:

Turns out they have a major problem with car break-ins, also called “smash and grabs.”

According to a report earlier this year from KQED, San Francisco had more than 30,000 car break-ins reported last year. The number of break-ins has tripled since 2010.

The police say that the break-ins are a form of organized crime committed by “crews.”

Breaking into a car is a felony and if a criminal steals items worth over $950 it’s a second felony. You can go to jail for a maximum of three years for each felony. Problem is, they can’t catch people multiple times so they never do extended time for their crimes.

According to the report, police are trying to catch repeat offenders via “bundling,” where they track crimes someone commits over time. A case based on multiple incidents is more likely to result in a conviction.

Despite their efforts, the police barely make a dent in the numbers. An arrest is made in only 2 percent of the total break-ins reported.

Along with “bundling,” the city is trying to help with the crime spree by setting up a web site and telephone line to report break-ins and one officer from each of the city’s 12 police stations will focus on break-ins.

According to a SF Chronicle report earlier this year, the city’s actions will have no effect because there really are no consequences for the criminals.

A local woman has described the “smash-and-grab” crime as anarchy. Every day, thieves break into cars on her block, with no consequence. “There’s no risk,” she said. “Why would they stop?”

Police respond to complaints, take a report and usually say that nothing can be done. Noted one man, “They (the police) shrugged. They see it all the time. Some cops take it real personal. Others come, and they’re just going through the motions.”

That “going through the motions” seems to be what is happening in many west coast, progressive run cities these days.

Seattle Police refused to remove homeless from construction site before they caused $1.3 million fire damage

The city of Seattle has a major homeless crisis that is perpetuated by the fact that homeless people are not held to the same standards as regular citizens.  They are allowed to defecate and urinate on city streets, carry weapons into prohibited places and openly use drugs. See the following posts:

Now a poor business man is facing a major loss – to the tune of $1.3 MILLION – because the Seattle police would not do anything about illegal squatters on the man’s construction project.

MyNorthwest.com reports about how a developer’s construction project was burned down by drug-using squatters. From the report:

“Adam Salmon, whose business, Eugene Sherman Development, has been building seven row houses on 43rd Street just off Aurora, said that a group of drug-using squatters have refused to vacate the property for months, even becoming belligerent when asked to leave. He is almost certain that one of these men caused the fire that robbed him of a large part of his livelihood.

Now he is out $1.2 million to $1.3 million, and the project that has been under construction for the past year is reduced to a pile of rubble. Eugene Sherman Development — named for the first names of both of Salmon’s grandfathers — is small, Salmon said, and tremendous losses like this one are not easy to absorb.

“It’s one of those punches in the gut that you have to pull yourself together,” he said. Insurance does not cover all of the costs of getting the Wallingford construction project back to the state it had been in.

The squatters have caused Salmon’s company grief for the past several months. Salmon said wryly that it was “a ritual every morning” trying to get the drug users to leave — in particular the group’s ringleader, who was “very defiant” when confronted.

“My guys would show up to work in the morning and there would be guys sleeping in there, and their drug paraphernalia was laying everywhere,” he said. “We would ask them to leave and they’d get aggressive.”

Each morning, Salmon and his employees found feces around the site. His employees were afraid of stepping on needles, and sub-contractors even refused to come to the project site out of fear.

“We had to spend our time chasing them each day, and then cleaning up the work site,” Salmon said.

Salmon has called police to the site several times, but to no avail. He and his workers put up “No trespassing” signs and fences around the property at the police’s suggestion. “No matter how secure we attempted to make it, they found their way in every evening,” he said of the squatters.

On Wednesday, Salmon said the police came to the work site while the ‘lead squatter’ was still sleeping there. “They talked to the guy, they told us they can’t do anything about it … They didn’t make him move, they didn’t make him leave,” Salmon said.”

Read the whole story here.

On top of this, Salmon has another construction project in a different part of the city in which he is experiencing similar problems with the homeless.

Also noted in the story: “He has written to the Seattle City Council of his travails, he said, but it seems as though the city government favors drug-addicted trespassers over hard-working, law-abiding business owners.”

Seattle voters better wake up. Your city is going up in flames right before your progressive eyes.

Homeless carrying weapons are “slipping through security” at King County Courthouse

The King County Courthouse is surrounded by homeless people on any given day. Back in April, a King County Councilmember said that it was the worst spot in the city for violent behavior. Citizens are routinely accosted and that it smells so bad because of the public defecation and urination.

In the summer of 2017, a homeless man brandishing a pair of scissors tried to attack King County Sheriff John Urquhart right outside of the courthouse. See the full video of the attempted attack here.

Even judges have stated that it is unsafe around the courthouse. In 2017, two judges described the conditions as “unsanitary” with a “potentially frightening atmosphere.”

Now KIRO7 reports that the weapons that the homeless carry are slipping through the x-ray machine at the courthouse. Apparently the machines are “failing” because they don’t have high-resolution cameras. The machines are also very expensive to maintain. New machines are in the budget for next year.

Some of the items making it through into the courthouse include knives, pepper spray and brass knuckles.

The homeless don’t have any place to store their weapons so apparently they feel it is perfectly acceptable to bring them into a courthouse. It’s not acceptable – it’s against the law and is considered a misdemeanor. I wonder how many homeless people who bring prohibited weapons into the courthouse have actually faced any consequences? That is a rhetorical question, of course.

Read the whole KIRO7 story here.

The Deranged Left: Professor shoots himself in arm to protest Trump; pro-lifer threatened with rape & strangling

We are at an extraordinary time in America’s history.

In the not so recent past, the political party that lost the White House would be disgruntled, but would wait their turn for the next election.

Not so any more.

The Left — Democrats, liberals, Progressives, socialists, communists — are so unhinged by the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, they have gone stark, raving mad:

  • Democrats took to screaming at the sky on the anniversary of Trump’s election.
  • Prominent Democrats in politics, media, universities and “entertainment” publicly call for President Trump’s overthrow and even assassination.
  • Republicans and Trump supporters are shot and physically assaulted.
  • Journalists and editors have abandoned all pretense at objectivity; the editorial board of America’s supposedly premier newspaper New York Times actually calls for deploying Godfather mafia tactics against a duly-elected sitting President.

See also “This is the Left: Trump-hater assaults California GOP candidate; death threats to pro-life UK legislator“.

Bear in mind that the Left are in this collective meltdown AFTER eight years in power of the Obama presidency.

Just imagine what they’d do to us if/when they regain the White House.

Each day brings more displays of their murderous malice, vileness, and a lunacy that has crossed the threshold into psychopathy.

The latest: a Nevada community college professor actually shot himself in his arm to protest President Trump, while pro-aborts threaten to rape and strangle a pro-life author-columnist.

Las Vegas Review Journal reports that at about 8:15 a.m. on August 28, 2018 — the second of class of the Fall semester — outside a bathroom in K building at the College of Southern Nevada (CSN), Charleston Campus, in Las Vegas, sociology professor Mark J. Bird, 69, was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm.

A 911 call was made after several CSN employees and at least one student saw Bird stumble out of the bathroom, bleeding, before he collapsed. None of the witnesses — who later told police they only recalled hearing “a loud noise” — initially knew Bird was armed and had shot himself. One college employee told police that he held Bird’s hand to calm him down as others tried to stop the bleeding. While waiting for authorities to arrive, Bird said he had shot himself in protest of President Donald Trump, police noted in their report.

Inside the bathroom where Bird had shot himself, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor”. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.

CSN spokesman Richard Lake said Bird was hired on Aug. 26, 1993, and is an emeritus faculty member although still employed with the college. It is not clear what disciplinary actions, if any, the college would take against him.

Police has charged Bird with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure (Building K on the Charleston Campus), carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property. His preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 17 in Las Vegas Justice Court.

Denise McAllister is an author, columnist and Fox News commentator.

PJMedia reports, Sept. 11, 2018, that McAllister is in hiding, fearing for her life, after sending out a powerful tweet denouncing the abortion movement:

At the root of [abortion] hysteria is women’s unhinged desire for irresponsible sex. Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament. It’s abhorrent as women have flung themselves from the heights of being the world’s civilizing force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity.

McAllister told PJ Media that after her tweet, she received death and rape threats over multiple forms of private communication:

They are threats outside of Twitter, stating they know where I live. Threats of rape and strangling. I spoke to the police. I am on home watch. My children are very frightened.

On Sunday, Sept. 9, McAllister went public about the threats in this tweet:

I am facing legit death & rape threats because I have dared to call out women who are hysterical about abortion and to challenge them to be responsible and not to elevate sex to the point that they’re willing to kill human life to avoid their responsibilities. How sick is that?

The next day, she announced she would withdraw from social media for safety reasons:

Due to threats against my life, my family is asking that I stay off social media until the situation is resolved. I don’t want to, but I need to respect their wishes at this time. I hope to return soon. Keep up the good fight, my friends.

Instead of remorse and regret for the vile threats against McAllister, the pro-aborts are hurling even more venom at her. Some examples:

  • Science fiction and horror author Nick Mamatas @NMamatas tweeted that McAllister’s revelation of receiving rape and death threats is a solicitation for sex: “This is the oddest, yet hottest, request for dudes to slide into one’s DMs ever tweeted.” Denise McAllister is a rape survivor. This is Mamatas’s frightening visage on his Twitter account:

  • One woman @vjvnam suggested McAllister deserves the rape and death threats — “karma.”
  • A “pro-choice” activist @Christyw277  with 6,500 followers tweeted, “May God have mercy on your soul. I sure would not.”
  • Andre Brock, a self-described “writer at large” in Washington state, took it upon himself to tweet: “Too bad your mother didn’t have an abortion.”

The Left have sunken so low and are so unhinged, I am hard pressed to imagine what they will do next. This I do know: Things will only get worse unless there is divine intervention.

God help us.

Rahm Emanuel sets up UBI task force to tackle poverty

Liberals never learn from history.

From Fox News: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will form a task force that will consider implementing the so-called “universal basic income” program in the city, as the embattled mayor seeks to cement his progressive legacy after promising not to run for another term.

The idea for the program, which would make monthly payments to a number of Chicago families without any conditions, has been floated around in the city for months now.

Back in June, Chicago’s North Side Ald. Ameya Pawar introduced a resolution calling upon the mayor to launch the pilot of the program and pay 1,000 families $500 every month.

The new task force set up by Emanuel, according to the Chicago Tribune, will have a panel that will decide whether such welfare initiative could work in the city.

Pawar, who will be part of the panel, claims universal basic income is a way to tackle poverty amid the loss of jobs due to automation and the offshoring of industries.

But the creation of the task force may open Emmanuel for criticism, as it comes just less than a week after he announced that he won’t run for a third term. The decision to implement a potentially costly program will rest on the shoulders of another mayor.

Pawar told the Tribune that he doesn’t believe Emanuel is creating the task force only to claim credit for it without actually implementing.

“Chicago would be the largest city in the country to take this step,” he said. “I think the mayor sees this as a chance to lead the way as cities try to grapple with poverty and income inequality at a time the federal government is not addressing those things. This would be a legacy issue [for Emanuel].”

A number of cities in the U.S. have either discussed or adopted a similar version of the program. The city of Stockton, California will begin paying 100 fortunate residents $500 a month without any conditions in 2019.

The city, which was once known as America’s foreclosure capital, has recently fallen on hard times, with 1-in-4 residents living below the poverty line and the median household income at nearly $8,000 lower than the national median.

In Oakland, California, Y Combinator, a startup incubator, is giving out $1,500 a month to randomly selected residents. It’s expected the money will soon be distributed to 100 recipients with a prospect of expanding the program to 1,000 people who will receive $1,000 monthly.

VA wants to add ‘gender-reassignment’ surgery to veterans’ benefits package

The Department of Veterans Affairs is considering adding the so-called “sex-reassignment” surgery to military veterans’ benefits package.

That means we taxpayers will have to pay for the surgeries that don’t actually re-assign a person’s gender. That’s because a person’s gender is determined by DNA chromosomes that remain the same after all the torturous body mutilations — chopping off breasts, shaving off the Adam’s apple, castrating the penis and testicles, gouging a hole as a pretend-vagina that must be “dilated” until the wound eventually scars over. See:

Below is a video showing the butchering that claims to be male-to-female gender-reassignment surgery:

Here’s the letter from the vice president of Family Research Council:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is considering changing its medical benefits package to begin covering sex-reassignment surgery – an elective surgery on the healthy organs of healthy individuals.  They have requested comments on this change and we urge you to speak out on behalf of veterans.

The VA has noted that “any addition to the medical benefits package will have an associated cost and burden on existing specialists, especially urological and vascular surgeons and other highly trained specialists who are already in short supply nationwide.”

Limited resources and funds should be allocated based on medical need and, after analyzing numerous studies, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has refused to label sex-reassignment surgery as medically necessary.

In 2014, the American people were shocked to learn that thousands of patient records at numerous VA facilities across the country were fraudulently maintained to cover-up backlogs that resulted in veterans dying before they received care.  A March 2018 Inspector General investigation found that this problem has not been fully resolved.  More than 5,000 patient records across 64 facilities were found to be incorrectly dated, thus masking the length of time these veterans had been waiting for care.  Also, many patients with accurately dated records were not given the opportunity to seek care outside the VA system – an option to which they are legally entitled after waiting the prescribed 30-day period.

The military should not be subject to social experimentation and engineering and such experimentation and engineering should not bleed over into the care of veterans.

Please comment online by midnight today (9/7) when the comment period closes.

Sincerely,

David Christensen
Vice President for Government Affairs

Fifth-grade student punished for calling student “ma’am” after she asked him not to

Good grief. I live in Oklahoma and get called “ma’am” everyday. Clerks also call me “hon” and “sweetie.”

Some people have too much butthurt in their lives.

From Daily Mail: A fifth-grade boy has been punished for calling his teacher ‘ma’am’ after she asked him not to use the term of respect.

Student Tamarion Wilson, 10, was made to write out the word ‘ma’am’ repeatedly during class on Tuesday at North East Carolina Preparatory School in Tarboro, North Carolina.

His mother Teretha Wilson was shocked when he returned home from the public charter school with the sheet of paper, for her to sign in order to complete the punishment.

‘I asked him what happened. He said he got in trouble for saying “yes ma’am”,’ the mother told ABC 11.

The teacher had apparently warned the class not to call her ‘ma’am’, although the reason for the prohibition is not entirely clear.

While the term of respect is sometimes reserved for married women, or those presumed old enough to have children, in many parts of the South it is used for women of all ages.

Tamarion was hospitalized last month for a seizure illness that included hallucinations and memory loss, although the teacher was not aware of his condition, Wilson said.

When the boy called the teacher ‘ma’am’ after she had prohibited it, the teacher said that if she had something to throw, she would have thrown it at the boy, according to Wilson.

The teacher, who has several years of experience, admitted in a parent conference to saying she would like to throw something, but said it was a joke, Wilson said.

Wilson and Tamarion’s father, McArthur Bryant, said that they had raised their children to address their elders as ‘sir’ and ‘ma’am’.

‘As a father, to feel kind of responsible for that…knowing that I have been raising him and doing the best that I can, it’s not acceptable,’ Bryant told the ABC affiliate.

Wilson met with the teacher and the principal on Wednesday, and requested that Tamarion be placed in a different classroom. The principal granted the request, Wilson said.

The school released a brief statement, saying: ‘This is a personnel matter which has been handled appropriately by the K-7 principal.’

North East Carolina Preparatory School is a public charter school with grades kindergarten through 12. Enrollment was 960 at the beginning of the school year.

Some seem to believe that “lacy bras” for men is now a thing

No, it isn’t.

From Daily Mirror: Ladies, if you’ve ever looked at your man’s underwear and thought it was a bit dull, then you’re not alone.  There’s so much choice when it comes to women’s underwear, from thongs to Brazilian and Bridget Jones -style pants, not to mention strapless, multi-way and water bras.

Mostly men only have boxers or briefs to choose from. However that’s all about to change, as one lingerie company has created a unique line of bras and knickers especially for men.

HommeMystere is selling lacy bras, matching knickers and for the male who wants to wear something a little more sexy under his clothes.  If that’s not enough, men can also get their own silk nighties, baby dolls and body suits.

The company’s bras don’t come with actual cup sizes, but some padded options are available and sizes range from small to extra large.

According to the website, it’s not just the men getting a kick out of the soft, luxurious underwear – the women love it too.

A review posted for the turquoise Annabelle bra said: “So sexy, my gf loves me in this and the matching panties.”

One man reviewing the Tiffany sleepwear set commented: “The material feels so soft and sensuous to the touch and feels so comfortable. You could sleep in it all night, if it wasn’t so sexy!”

HommeMystere was established in 2009 and their aim is to design and make “fun, comfortable, unique lingerie – for people with packages.”

Products from the website can be shipped worldwide, including the UK, the US, France, Germany, Hong Kong and New Zealand.

People on social media have mixed opinions on the idea of their partner wearing underwear. One woman said: “Oh…I think my guy and I will pass on this trend.”

While another joked: “Now we can go bra shopping together, yay.”

Insanity: NASCAR driver Conor Daly loses sponsorship because his father used the “N word” in an interview – before Conor was born

Conor Daly: Being punished for the ancient action of his father/ESPN photo

From Daily Mail: NASCAR Xfinity driver Conor Daly has lost one of his sponsors because of a racial slur made by his racing driver father in the 1980s before he was even born.

Lilly Diabetes said in a statement on Friday that it was pulling sponsorship of Conor’s No.6 car in the NASCAR Xfinity race at Road America, citing the racially insensitive remark made by his father Derek Daly that surfaced this week.

The company said in a statement that its sponsorship was intended to raise awareness for treatment options and resources for people living with diabetes.

‘Unfortunately, the comments that surfaced this week by Derek Daly distract from this focus, so we have made the decision that Lilly Diabetes will no longer run the No. 6 at Road America this weekend,’ Lilly said.

Primarily an IndyCar driver, Conor will make his NASCAR debut at the rural Wisconsin road course on Saturday with Roush Fenway Racing.

‘The last (24 hours) have been quite an unnecessarily difficult ride for my family. There is A LOT I want to say… but I’m still here and still racing,’ Conor wrote on Twitter on Friday night.

He found himself caught up in controversy this week after his father Derek and Indianapolis Colts radio voice Bob Lamey both admitted to using the N-word.

The elder Daly, who is a former Indy 500 and Formula One driver, was fired from his job as a WISH-TV racing analyst this week following the news that he had used the N-word in an interview 30 years ago.

It resurfaced after longtime Indianapolis Colts radio voice Bob Lamey used the word during a training camp last week as he retold the story of Derek’s radio interview from the 1980s. Lamey abruptly retired in the wake of the comments.

In a statement, Derek said he admitted to using the slur during the interview. Derek, who had just moved to the US at the time, said the term had a different meaning and connotation in his native Ireland.

He said he was ‘mortified’ when he learned how the term was used in America and has never used it since then. His 26-year-old son wasn’t born when he made the comment.

‘Finally, I want everyone to know I deeply regret and sincerely apologize for what I said more than three decades ago,’ the elder Daly said in his statement.

Lilly Diabetes is still sponsoring the RFR-owned cars of drivers Ty Majeski and Ryan Reed at Road America. ‘We remain committed to our mission of supporting people with diabetes,’ Lilly said.

Conor thanked Roush Fenway and Twitter followers for their support in the wake of the controversy. He also thanked his former sponsor. ‘Lilly Diabetes has been a big part of my career and I’m very thankful,’ Conor wrote.
