Actor Jeffrey Wright: When We Get the Power, Everybody Else F**king Duck

NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 19: Jeffrey Wright speaks at the premiere of “Westworld” during the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival at BMCC Tribeca PAC on April 19, 2018 in New York City.

Actor Jeffrey Wright on Wednesday appeared to warn that when the political left in America “get the power” back from Republicans, “everybody else” should “fucking duck.”

“Message from the @GOP:” Jeffrey Wright began, “There are no principles — not ethical, moral, legal, constitutional, religious, spiritual — NONE. There’s only power. And when we get the power, everybody else fucking duck.”

“Lesson for everybody else: Get the power,” the Westworld star’s message concluded. It came as former Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered remarks at the Justice Department on Wednesday about the conclusion of his election interference investigation.

“If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Robert Mueller said, Wednesday echoing the conclusions made in his 800-plus page report. “Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider. It would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of the actual charge. So that was Justice Department policy. Those were the principles under which we operated.”

“And from them, we concluded that we would not reach a determination one way or the other about whether the president committed a crime,” Mueller said. “That is the office’s final position and we will not comment on any other conclusions or hypotheticals about the president.”

Indeed, Jeffrey Wright was merely among the many Hollywood celebrities who demanded that Congress began to take steps to impeach President Donald Trump

“Robert Mueller shorter: Impeach. The process was designed for this,” Wright said on Wednesday, joining the chorus of Hollywood figures calling for Trump’s impeachment.

Welfare for Refugees Cost Americans $123 Billion in 10 Years

By Neil Munro
Americans spent almost $100 billion to support 606,000 poor refugees in the 10 years up to 2014, according to a State Department report.

The $96.6 billion cost rises to $126 billion when officials count the extra cost of paying for the refugees’ spouses and children, including U.S.-born children.

The $126 billion bill is just for programs managed by the Department of Health and Human Services. It excludes additional taxpayers’ spending via state programs, as well as federal spending on Social Security, education, and housing programs, plus tax credits, says the State Department’s annual report to Congress on the refugee program.

The one-agency, $126-billion firehose of cash, however, was a huge taxpayer subsidy to the refugee groups which delivered the refugee to cities and towns. It is also a huge subsidy to the low-wage employers who hired the refugees in place of higher-wage Americans, and to the grocery stores and apartments who sold food and rented apartments to the new arrivals.

The huge cost adds up to $670 per working American, not counting the hard-to-assess costs of crowded schoolrooms, flooded labor markets, civic diversity, and shifts in political power away from Americans.

The massive spending will continue because the vast majority of the 606,000 refugees remain in the United States, mostly in low-skilled jobs, and will age into retirement. Since 2014, former President Barack Obama imported an additional 155,000 refugees.

The expenses are high because few of the refugees have the skills to earn a good living. The report noted:

Education level: Respondents age 25 or older averaged 8.7 years of education before arrival; about half did not have a high school diploma upon arrival; and 29 percent of refugees age 25 or older listed their prior educational attainment as “none.” Among respondents age 18 and older, 16 percent were pursuing a degree of some kind, with most seeking high school equivalency.

English language proficiency: Respondents improved their English over time, but large deficits remain. Among refugees age 18 or older who had lived in the United States between 4.5 and 6.5 years, 53 percent spoke English “not well” or “not at all,” based on self-assessments.

Employment: 59 percent of respondents ages 16 to 64 were employed, lower than the 67.5 percent employment rate for native-born members of the U.S. population. Male respondents were employed at a rate roughly on par with the U.S. population after being in the United States for only two years. Employed refugees age 18 or older earned $12 per hour on average.

Public benefits use: Two percent of respondent households reported public assistance as their only source of income; 27 percent received cash welfare of some kind, most often Supplemental Security Income (SSI); and 56 percent received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Among respondents age 18 or older, 57 percent reported having health coverage throughout the previous year, while 34 percent reported no health coverage. Among those with coverage, about half received Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance.

President Donald Trump has dramatically braked the inflow to 53,000 refugees in 2017 and has promised to accept a maximum of 30,000 organized-inflow refugees in 2019.

Also, the Department of Homeland Security has announced a new regulation to deny visas and green cards to foreigners who poor, unskilled, or old. For the moment, the rule does not apply to refugees.

Trump’s slowdown has reduced the impact of refugee migration on Americans cities, such as Lewiston, Maine, or Kansas City, Kansas.

Breitbart News reported:

The JBS meatpacking company has raised salaries by 25 percent to help persuade more people to work in a Texas slaughterhouse, according to the Washington Post.

But that good news, however, is buried by the Post‘s endorsement of the meatpackers’ business strategy, which uses federal immigration programs to recruit replacements for injured or exhausted American (or migrant) workers and to minimize investment in labor-saving automation …

Overall, the Post‘s article is wrapped up in a self-serving view of immigration held by many progressives who justify the importation of a subservient class into the United States by promising that the immigrants’ children will advance in society. The article concludes with [Stan] Corbin’s progressive promise that “their children will grow up to be engineers … [but now] there is a great need for laborers.”

In this view, the U.S. meatpacking industry is a social service agency for the world’s poor which also provides liberals with cheap restaurants plus the satisfaction of helping distant foreigners. This “telescopic philanthropy” allows urban liberals to feel good about their generosity to foreigners while they ignore the costs they impose on nearby American communities, including the American blue-collar workers who see their salaries cut and the American children who are forced into overcrowded and dysfunctional classrooms.

The State Department’s report provided a chart showing how the HHS agency spent the money:

Screen-Shot-2018-09-26-at-4-40-23-PM
Refugees

The report detailed which migrants were treated as refugees:

HHS estimated expenditures from the major HHS programs assisting refugees and asylees and their dependents over the 10-year period 2005-2014. For purposes of its analysis, HHS included individuals who entered the United States since 1980 as refugees, asylees, Iraqi and Afghan Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders and their spouses and unmarried children under the age of 21, Cuban and Haitian entrants, certain Amerasians from Vietnam, victims of a severe form of trafficking who have received certification or eligibility letters from ORR, trafficking victims family members with T nonimmigrant visas, and some victims of torture. Individuals who later changed their immigration status to legal permanent resident or naturalized as U.S. citizens are included as well.

Four million young Americans will join the workforce this year, but the federal government will also import 1.1 million legal immigrants, and allows an army of at least 2 million blue-collar and white-collar visa-workers to work U.S. jobs, alongside asylum-claiming migrants and illegal aliens.

Overall, the Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via immigration shifts wealth from young people towards older people by flooding the market with cheap white-collar and blue-collar foreign labor.

That flood of outside labor spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. The policy also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions. Immigration also pulls investment and wealth away from heartland states because investment flows towards the large immigrant populations living in the coastal states.

The EU-funded wall that nobody wants to talk about

This is not Donald Trump’s desired border wall between the USA and Mexico, nor is it Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán’s fence which stops the flow of migrants into Europe – this is a 764 kilometer wall between Turkey and Syria, funded by none other than the European Union.

Turkey-wall-2-1024x576
Turkey wall 2

Turkey shares an 822 kilometer border with Syria, a country which has suffered bombardment from all angles since 2011, including several EU member states. The wall runs through the provinces of Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis, Hatay, Mardin and Sirnak and incorporates physical, electronic and advanced technology layers.

The physical layer includes modular concrete walls, patrol routes, manned and unmanned towers and passenger tracks.

While the EU and its loyal followers persistently preach that any form of borders are racist, many will be shocked to learn that the construction of this wall was largely funded by the 28-member state union.

According to DER SPIEGEL:

“The EU states have provided the government in Ankara with security and surveillance technology valued at more than 80 million euros in exchange for the protection of its borders.

This included the transfer of 35.6 million euros by Brussels to the Turkish company Otokar as part of its IPA regional development program for the construction of armored Cobra II military vehicles, which are now being used to patrol the border to Syria.”

Additionally, in 2016, the EU pledged €3 billion to Turkey under the guise of humanitarian aid to the Syrian refugees in the country. In reality, this deal served to trap the existing 3.5million refugees in Turkey and left those hoping to flee their war torn country at even further risk.

Once these resources are to be used in full, the EU will mobilise an additional €3 billion to the end of 2018, as confirmed by a press release of the European Commission.

Next time an EU politician is giving an ethics lecture in regards to immigration and the Syrian conflict, keep this in mind.

VERY DISTURBING: US Gives China Eminent Domain Over US Property

US Gives China Eminent
Domain Over US Property
Beyond High Treason
A. True Ott, PhD, ND

https://rense.com/general85/give.htm

Let’s connect some dots today, boys and girls to learn about the HIGHEST POSSIBLE TREASON that has happened in this country.

THIS IS AS REAL AND AS UGLY AS IT CAN GET.

Dot #1 China begins its covert war on the FREE American republic in the 1950’s by taking over much of the PHARMACEUTICAL DRUG manufacturing for American and British Big Pharma. This is an outgrowth of the Rothschild’s OPIUM RING PROCESSING by the British West Indies company during the 1800’s, and is brokered by the “City of London” and Washington D.C.

Dot #2 Arch-illuminist and satanist Henry Kissinger “normalizes” trade relations with China during the Nixon years.

Dot #3 Eventual LDS (Mormon) Church President Gordon B. Hinckley, via the church-owned Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii, establishes a “hard currency” pipeline with Bejing, exchanging bank “trade credits” for CIA/BRITISH MI6 DRUG SERVICES RENDERED into hard GOLD AND SILVER while hiding behind the cloak of “World Religion”. This is facilitated via the LDS-Church built and controlled “Shenzhen Special Economic Zone” adjacent to Hong Kong. When Hinckley is made LDS President, his first “official” visit as “World Prophet” is to China, where the Chinese Communist leaders give him a hero’s welcome and a confetti parade. (See attached paper — “Pensees of a Puzzled Pilgrim” pp 5-6 and Desert News, June 1, 1996 article: “President Hinckley Visits China”).

Dot #4 Arkansas natives Bill Clinton and Sam Walton massively increase contracts with China’s factories over 2,000%. This results in a tremendous imbalance of trade with China. Thanks to the Mormon “Special Economic Zone” — China’s communist leaders begin amassing incredible “real” wealth in gold and silver.

Dot #5 China purchases TRILLIONS of dollars worth of U.S. Treasury Bills and Bonds, paying for it with gold and silver provided by the Shenzhen Economic Zone exchanges. Much of the U.S. “national debt” is purchased from the private “Federal Reserve” banks in this manner.

Dot #6 Dr. Jeff Taubenberger of the U.S. Institute of Pathology in Ft. Dedrick MD, (The world headquarters for biologic weapons development) successfully maps the genome of the 1918 killer “flu” virus responsible for the 1918 “pandemic” that killed millions.
The worst killer virus ever to plague mankind is now ready to be used as a covert “weapon” disguised as a natural “influenza” mutations.

Dot #6 July, 2005: The Illuminati-conrolled United Nations announces that the world is long over-due for an “influenza pandemic”. The H5N1 “Avian Flu” is wrongfully demonized as a COVER.

Dot #7 December 2005: The Chinese Defense Minister, Chi Haotiaon delivers a speech to the Chinese military leaders outlining the inevitable “expansion” of China into Canada, the U.S., and Australia — He justifies this because of Chinese racial “superiority” and thus “emminent domain”. To accomplish this, American would first have to be “Cleansed” by means of a powerful “biological weapon” — causing 150 -200 MILLION AMERICAN DEATHS!!! The plan would be enacted AFTER the symbolic OLYMPIC GAMES beginning at the sacred day of 8-08-08 are concluded. China begins buying oil and gas futures, spiking the worldwide prices to historic levels.

Dot #8 March 13, 2008: A secret meeting is conducted for the U.S. House and Senate. Agents of the Club of Rome give a preview of upcoming events to elected officials who first swear an oath of secrecy. The traitors are briefed that the economy will begin its collapse in October, 2008 — and will TOTALLY collapse in mid 2009. As events unfold in 2009-2010, Congress was told of the real possibily of massive civil unrest and even Civil War being waged. Detention camps constructed to imprison civil ‘agitators’. See http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/34877
for the complete meeting agenda.

Dot #9 In September, 2008 — as soon as the Olympics are concluded, China stops buying oil and gas futures while dumping U.S. Treasury bills and bonds. Gasoline prices plummet, while the U.S. mortgage loan money becomes tightly constricted. The Club of Rome’s agenda is being implemented perfectly.

Dot #10 In October, just as explained in March, the economy indeed begins its collapse with mortgage banks going bankrupt as the Chinese dump their U.S. Securities. This causes a world-wide “rush to liquidity” as money supplies DRASTICALLY tighten.

Dot #11 Billions of worthless U.S. Government “bailout” debit entries are given to bolster failing U.S. Banks. These are “worthless” because China now controls most of the U.S. “REAL” wealth in the form of gold and silver. China refuses to continue investing credit loans to the U.S. Treasury.


Dot #12 Barack Hussein Obama is elected, promising “Change you can believe in.” After taking office in January, Obama sends Hillary Clinton on a critical mission to China and helps write H.R. 45 — a complete grab of America’s guns ala Adolph Hitler. State leaders who understand what Clinton and Obama agenda with China is about, are seeking legal “Sovereignty” to prevent the loss of property to a foreign power.


Dot #13 China agrees to continue investing in U.S. Treasury Bills only after securing the right of “eminent domain” to physically repossess foreclosed American PRIVATE PROPERTY. This move is the equivalent of an unconditional surrender following a bloody war.

This also gives the Chinese military the LEGAL RIGHT to use biological weaponry to “Clean up America all at once”. It gives them the legal right to use deadly force in removing trespassing Americans from occupying Chinese real estate.

Connect these 13 evil dots, and this is what you get:

FEDS GRANT EMINENT DOMAIN AS COLLATERAL TO CHINA FOR U.S. DEBTS

BEIJING, China — Sources at the United States Embassy in Beijing China have just CONFIRMED that the United States of America has tendered to China a written agreement which grants to the People’s Republic of China, an option to exercise Eminent Domain within the USA, as collateral for China’s continued purchase of US Treasury Notes and existing US Currency reserves.


The written agreement was brought to Beijing by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and was formalized and agreed-to during her recent trip to China.

This means that in the event the US Government defaults on its financial obligations to China, the Communist Government of China would be permitted to physically take — inside the USA — land, buildings, factories, perhaps even entire cities – to satisfy the financial obligations of the US government.

Put simply, the feds have now actually mortgaged the physical land and property of all citizens and businesses in the United States. They have given to a foreign power, their Constitutional power to “take” all of our property, as actual collateral for continued Chinese funding of US deficit spending and the continued carrying of US national debt.

This is an unimaginable betrayal of every man, woman and child in the USA. An outrage worthy of violent overthrow.

————– UPDATE 1:40 pm EST

Eminent Domain is the power of government to TAKE private property for public use without the consent of the property owner. Under our Constitution, the government can only “take” when providing “just compensation” for what they’ve taken.

Who decides what constitutes “just compensation?” The government!

Homeowners who felt the government was not paying them enough for property in past “takings” have filed lawsuits. In absolutely every such case, the value placed upon the property by the government was upheld by the courts.

Our federal government has now granted to China, this power to “take”our homes and businesses in the event the US Gov’t defaults on its debts. Let’s play this out as a worst case scenario. . . .

The US Gov’t goes belly-up and China comes in and says, “they owed us $2 Trillion in Treasury Notes and another $2 Trillion in actual cash money which is now worthless. We are taking the entire state of Hawaii and the entire state of California in lieu of this bad debt. ”

With the stroke of a Chinese chop stick, Hawaii and California — all the land and buildings in those states — are now owned by China.

The “taking” would be a “valid public use” because it was “taken” in payment of the public debt!!!!

China could then turn around and declare the value of all that land to be worth. . . . . I dunno, ten cents on a dollar?

For your $200,000 house, you get a Chinese check for $20,000.

Needless to say, the property owners would go ballistic and demand “just compensation” for what was taken. Who gets to decide what is “just?” China! Don’t think you got a fair price for what they took? No problem, sue China.

You’ll lose.

People who live in those states and own their land outright, might be able to negotiate with China to “rent” back their own property, as long as the property owner continued to pay all his taxes; but the land and buildings would belong to China.


This is what our own Government has just done to us and it is the single most vile act of betrayal in the history of human existence.

————- SECOND UPDATE 3:48 PM

In early February nine U.S. States began the process of re- asserting their Sovereignty pursuant to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the US Constitution; declaring null and void any actions by Congress that violated the Constitution.

The states took action to make certain the feds couldn’t give away cities or the states themselves!

This situation is going to get VERY ugly, VERY fast as one sovereign power (the feds) try to literally give away the land of other sovereign powers, (the states). This is the type of thing that starts Civil War.

Our present federal government makes the treachery and betrayal of Benedict Arnold look like child’s play.

Lionel: An Existential Fight to the Death with the Globalists

Lionel: An Existential Fight to the Death with the Globalists
October 20, 2018
https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/lionel-an-existential-fight-to-the-death-with-the-globalists/

It seems like all of the righteous rage and frustration over the evils and inequities perpetrated over the past half century by the US Government; anger that would have rightly been directed toward George W Bush for 9/11 and the Endless Wars or toward Barack Obama for doubling down on drone strikes and pumping up the surveillance state is being displaced onto Donald Trump. It seems like all of the the hatred that is so richly deserved by the Neocons is being diverted onto Trump, even though he defunded ISIS and has been much less warlike than his predecessors. Seriously, where was all the outrage that we see being hurled at the President in the Mainstream Media when Bush took us to war with Iraq on a lie?

I expressed many of these thoughts the other day but Lionel, who is a living, breathing thesaurus and articulates these ideas with his own inimitable panache:

“Paleoconservatism of the Reagan era is dead. The Conservatism of William F Buckley and of all those grand GOP-ers is dead. Neoconservatism is dead. New Deal FDR Democratic policy is dead. Anything from the past, today is dead. It’s a brand new world and if you’re using antiquated, antediluvian, archaic almost Paleolithic concepts of Conservatism and supply-side, the world is different, the problems are different, the scope of the problems are different…

“We’re in a war right now, not against Liberalism but against unipolar Globalism, New World Order, Deep State, police state, intel state, government-within-the-government, permanent government, shadow government. We’re in a in a war with a Soros-backed, Bilderberg-backed, a multi-layered conspiracy; world involving dark forces and people and methodologies that transcend anything from the past.

“Ronald Reagan wouldn’t know what to do and if you’re spouting 30-year old National Review, Bill Buckley, supply-side and all of this hyper-moralistic, simplistic, Antediluvian, tissue-thin; this kind of a rehash, recycled, regurgitated Conservatism; if you think that’s what this is…Pick the greatest argument from the past; the greatest argument that we have ever had from the past and nothing compares today…

“I mean, we’re dealing with threats to our system that the Gipper could not even fathom. He worried about the ‘Evil Empire.’ That’s nothing. You know who the Evil Empire is now? It’s NATO! and Russia is this perfect wedge, this perfect ‘Bad Guy’!

“Remember: no Russia, no NATO – no Russia, no NATO!

“The fill-in-the-blank ‘Bad Guy’ – and they tried everything. Let me tell you where they shot their wad and where they absolutely made a huge mistake: …when they decided that they were going to use Russia and Putin and others as the fill-in-the-blank, generic explanation and the basis for everything that involved Hillary Clinton…

“She provided you with the basis and the provision of her reason, her excuse for losing and with that came this contrived and incredibly-orchestrated, the machinations of the conspiracy to blame Trump and as that was exposed…everything from Fusion GPS, to dossiers, to PissGate, to Russian hookers, you know, soiling the percales of beds, I mean, it’s just unraveled – and Rosenstein – and then this monumentally huge, inordinate superstructure of corruption involving people being fired, removed, expurgated, bowdlerized, yanked, jettisoned, whatever you want to call it.

“Let me leave you with what I said before: this is not about Reaganomics. This is not about Neo-Classical Conservatism. Anything from those days, anything from the days of the Gipper and…this Manichaean war between Liberalism and Conservatism, and Good vs Evil and Right vs Wrong – that’s over. It’s a new game and a new day, Sparky. Believe me.”

Despite legal threat, new anti-Facebook site launches to claim tech giant is ‘killing the internet’

A new anti-Facebook blog, giving small and mid-sized publishers a place to vent their frustrations over the tech giant’s censorship policies and algorithms hiding their content, has gone live despite legal threats.

FacebookZoo, hosted on niche publishing platform Maven, went live on Tuesday. It aims to give disgruntled publishers an avenue to criticize the company’s censorship policy, as well as outline how its “ever-changing algorithms” have drastically affected their livelihoods in favor of shareholder profit.

The blog has already survived an attempt by Facebook’s legal team to shut it down. The attempt failed to go anywhere as Maven had the foresight to trademark ‘FacebookZoo’ while it was in beta mode, according to the New York Post.

Facebook’s legal representative known only as ‘Ethel’ wrote to Maven, saying: “Your unauthorized use of the Facebook name is likely to cause confusion as to whether you or your company’s activities are authorized, endorsed, or sponsored by Facebook when, in fact, they are not.”

Ethel also warned Maven that in order to avoid “consumer confusion” and “harm” to Facebook’s brand, it should “stop using the name and domain facebookzoo.com and disable any site available at that address.”

Since going live, FacebookZoo has had a slew of content creators air their grievances, following complaints that Facebook’s new algorithms had slashed their customer base and ad revenues earlier this year.

One cause for concern was artists working hard to build a following on social media platforms without remuneration, and when it was monetized, “Facebook had rules in place,” to control who made money, according to Greg Watkins and Chuck Creekmur of AllHipHop.com.

Asking artists why they were willing to give their content away for free on social media platform, Greg Watkins said the pair regularly told artists: “We actually represent what you’re doing and you’re making all these guys billionaires by giving it to them with the hope that at some point you may be able to reach an audience.”Delete

“The thing is, we’re all slaves at the end of the day, right? To Facebook, to YouTube,” writes Alicé Anil, a political commentator and satirist, who noticed a radical drop in follower engagement after Facebook ‘tweaked’ its algorithms.

“The moment that they decide to change their algorithm, we are f*****… Our business model has been completely jeopardized just because of a single decision that was made,” she added.

Facebook’s censorship policy is another issue tackled by the site. Boyce Watkins, founder of Black Business School, said her page was “killed” by a “Facebook bot” just as it approached a million likes.

Aimed at promoting “economic intelligence and financial literacy amongst Black communities,” Black Business School was earning $250,000 a year from Facebook, however someone quoting Malcolm X in a post saw the page pulled without warning and suspended for two years.

“They’re bullies,” Watkins said. “We could not even get anyone on the phone to find out why we were suspended.”

Facebook claims that its algorithm change, which favored friends and family over media sites, was a way to get back to its roots as a site that connected people.

Poop Patrol: San Fran deploys squads to clear streets of human feces after residents raise stink

San Francisco has established ‘Poop Patrols’ to deal with human waste that’s contaminating sidewalks in one of America’s wealthiest cities, sometimes making them almost impassable.

A homeless person in San Francisco Complaints soar as San Francisco drowns in human waste

The city is about to launch the ‘Poop Patrols’ squad to remove man-made feces from the streets, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The task force, made up of five Public Works staffers, will begin patrolling sidewalks “in about a month.”

‘Poop Patrol’ will begin its unenviable work in the afternoon, by which time piles of feces tend to become visible. The poo crew will travel in a vehicle equipped with a steam cleaner. “We’re trying to be proactive,” explained Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru. “We’re actually out there looking for it.”

The Chronicle, however, good-naturedly trolled the city official, saying: “We’re all out there looking for it, our eyes are trained on the sidewalks as we walk so as to avoid that awful squishy feeling.”

It looks like the news is coming at just the right time, as around 65 complaints regarding sidewalk poop are made by San Francisco residents every day. Notably, the city, which is known for its skyrocketing housing prices, has only 22 public toilets.

Being part of a multi-million effort called Pit Stop, the toilets are open only until late afternoon or evening. So, at nighttime, there is only one option for homeless people to relieve themselves when urgently required.

Some of the waste also comes from dogs, as their owners fail to pick up after them.

Mayor London Breed had been taking unannounced tours to check out the city’s streets before she teamed up with Public Works to establish ‘Poop Patrols.’ Breed said she had “to deal it with myself in front of my home,” which was “not a pleasant feeling.”

Earlier this year, residents pounded city authorities with demands to remove “sh*t, poop and excrement” from public areas. “[A] homeless encampment is blocking [the] sidewalk and creates a health hazard [with] trash and feces. Please move them, and send a cleaning crew. Sidewalk is impassable, forcing pedestrians into the street,” read one municipal complaint.

Tech hub San Francisco, California is the second-most expensive US city to live in. It’s also awash with human waste. This year, over 16,000 feces-related complaints have been lodged with city authorities.

As of Thursday, there have been 16,022 complaints made about ‘feces,’ and thousands of others made using words like ‘sh*t’, ‘poop’ and ‘excrement’, to San Francisco’s municipal authorities.

“Human feces still not cleaned up despite multiple complaints. How many weeks will pass?” reads one complaint lodged Wednesday.

“Bodily fluids and feces down the whole street, garbage, cloths, food thrown all over sidewalk,” reads another.

“Homeless encampment is blocking sidewalk and creates a health hazard w trash and feces. Please move them, and send a cleaning crew. Sidewalk is impassable, forcing pedestrians into the street,” reported one user, his complaint accompanied with a photo of a tent pitched under a tree in the city’s central Mission district.

San Francisco residents can make non-emergency ‘311’ municipal complaints with the touch of a button, thanks to a website and a mobile app. Complainants can attach photos as proof, and the authorities send a notification when the problem is resolved.

Many of the complaints are connected to the city’s homeless problem. Rent in the city averages over $3,500 per month, pricing out all but the highest earners and creating a city of wealthy tech employees on one side, and a teeming homeless underclass on the other.

San Francisco is beautiful, just don’t mind the giant bags of feces and step over the used hypodermic needles!

There are an estimated 7,500 homeless people in San Francisco at any given time, almost one percent of the city’s 871,000 population. Elsewhere in California, the problem is almost as grave, with more than one quarter of the US homeless population living in the state.

The city’s seedy underbelly leaves behind other forms of hazardous waste too. A February NBC report revealed that in addition to feces, downtown San Francisco is polluted with more garbage and used syringes than some of the world’s poorest slums.

Dr Lee Riley, an infectious diseases expert at the University of California in Berkeley, told NBC reporters that in some parts of the city, the contamination is “much greater than communities in Brazil or Kenya or Italy.”

Getting stuck by a used needle can pass on diseases like HIV and Hepatitis B and C. San Francisco has one of the largest HIV-positive populations in the US, with an estimated 16,010 people living with the disease.

The extent of San Francisco’s human waste problem was graphically illustrated last week, with photos of a 20-pound bag of excrement abandoned on a street corner going viral. The city received several 311 complaints about the bag, as citizens reported a “strong smell of feces” in the area. One reddit user described the bag as “the most atrocious smell I’ve ever smelled in San Francisco.”

Complaints about human waste in San Francisco have skyrocketed, increasing by 400 percent from 2008 to 2018, according to the City. The 311 site and app received over 21,000 reports last year. At the current rate, that figure will be more than doubled by the end of 2018.

The problem is starting to hit the Golden Gate City where it hurts too. This week, a major medical association decided to pull its annual convention out of the city, citing safety concerns.

The convention was expected to draw 15,000 attendees and bring $40 million into the city’s economy, but organizers told the San Francisco Chronicle that members were afraid to walk the streets and felt threatened by open drug use, unchecked mental illness, and threatening behaviour from the city’s vagrant population.

Twitter users have not been shy about their disgust with the city’s problems, with many blaming years of Democrat leadership for allowing the problem to fester.

San Francisco has reached critical mass in the drug, homeless, crime problem. Now major conventions are cancellingc. Participants too afraid to walk alone in the City by the Bay. So sad. Such a beautiful city being run into the ground.https://t.co/GGtecdpY6f

San Francisco is actually a pretty nice city…

You know when you remove the large number of homeless camps, drug addiction, poop maps, and trash lying everywhere. pic.twitter.com/bMr0m2Nk4P

San Francisco has grappled with homelessness since the 1970s, with the shortage of housing, deindustrialization, welfare cuts, and the gutting of the city’s middle class through high taxes and gentrification all getting blamed for the problem. Attempts to fix the situation have thus far proven unsuccessful. The temporary shelters opened by Dianne Feinstein in the late 1970s were underfunded and buckled under demand, while the aggressive crackdowns of Frank Jordan and Willie Brown in the 1990s and 2000s drew public backlash and alienated the city’s liberal voters. The city has not had a Republican mayor since 1964.

Recently elected Mayor London Breed has faced even more urgent calls to address the issue before business and tourism are scared away for good. Industry leaders have encouraged the mayor-elect to increase police patrols, enforce panhandling laws, and fund mental health services. With tourism bringing in some $9 billion dollars per year, failing to clean up the streets could bankrupt the city by the bay.
