    SAN FRANCISCO - Murder charges have been filed stemming from a deadly drive-by shooting from a San Francisco Muni bus. Jose Adrian Flores Garcia of San Francisco was charged with one count of murder and one count of discharging a firearm from a moving vehicle after he allegedly targeted a man in a "cold-blooded killing" in June, District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said.

    Conservatives have a strong case against Vice President Kamala Harris if they can avoid salaciousness and frame the issue properly. On Sunday, according to The San Francisco Standard, former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown held an impromptu news conference outside a restaurant in which he endorsed Harris as President Joe Biden’s replacement at the top of the Democratic presidential ticket. To put it mildly, Harris could have done without Brown’s endorsement. The establishment media, of course, will gloss over important details of his history with the vice president. For instance, the Standard noted merely that Brown “dated Harris when she...

    A 74-year-old San Francisco woman has died after she was pushed in front of a BART train by a homeless man at a subway station. Corazon Dandan, a San Mateo County resident, was shoved in front of a moving Millbrae-bound train at Powell Street station at around 11.06pm yesterday. BART police officers have identified and taken Trevor Belmont, 49, a homeless man also known as Hoak Taing into custody for the incident.
  • ‘Very aggressive’ homeless camp crackdown coming in August, mayor says. ( San Francisco )

    San Francisco Standard. ^ | Jul. 18, 2024 | David Sjostedt
    Mayor London Breed said a “very aggressive” sweep of San Francisco homeless encampments will start in August, after a recent Supreme Court ruling cleared the path for widespread enforcement. In June, the Supreme Court ruled that enforcing rules against homeless people for sleeping outside doesn’t violate the Eighth Amendment’s “cruel and unusual punishment” clause. On Thursday, Breed celebrated the ruling and said the city plans to change its protocols and may begin issuing criminal penalties against homeless people. “Thank goodness for the change in the Supreme Court decision,” Breed said at an election debate hosted by a local firefighter’s union....
  • Former Pelosi aide accused of sexual assault by ex-Senate staffer

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 10, 2024 | Emily Hallas
    An ex-Senate staffer has come forward with allegations that she was sexually assaulted by a former aide to onetime House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). A police report obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle details Zahra Hajee’s accusations against Kevin Ortiz. Hajee, a former aide to San Francisco City Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, has also worked for Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA). She claims Ortiz sexually assaulted her in March and April 2021. Ortiz denies the allegations, saying through his lawyers that the encounters were consensual. Ortiz is the co-president of the Latinx Democratic Club and was working for Pelosi when he met...
  • Look at San Francisco to understand what the leftist future holds for America

    Whether you like leftism or not (I don’t), one of the most admirable things about leftists is that they are long-term planners. Conservatives dream of quick fixes, but leftists put systems in place and then patiently wait for them to come to fruition. San Francisco perfectly illustrates how this works...and it goes back to the 1960s. At the end of June, a San Francisco convenience store was robbed and vandalized. This happened in a city that no longer polices minor crimes (allowing it to boast that its crime statistics have improved), thereby paving the way for major crimes. The city,...
  • How Kamala Harris's affair with a much-older Democrat kingpin catapulted her career... and his prophetic warning about her future prospects in White House

    The Daily Mail ^ | 06 Jul 2024 | Germania Rodriguez Poleo
    After Kamala Harris' campaign for president flamed out in late 2019, her California power-player ex advised against her accepting any offer to be second banana on the Democratic ticket, warning that the vice presidency would actually be the nail in the coffin to any future White House ambitions. Former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown - now 90 - wrote an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle warning his one-time lover Harris to decline Joe Biden's summer of 2020 offer, because 'historically, the vice presidency has often ended up being a dead end.' 'The glory would be short-lived, and historically, the...

    A mob of looters ransacked an Oakland gas station convenience store and caused thousands of dollars in damage as the frustrated store manager claimed police took nine hours to respond to his plea for help. The horde, who had just attended a nearby car sideshow, broke into the 76 Station near the San Francisco Bay Oakland International Airport around 4:30 a.m. on Friday, according to ABC 7 News Bay Area. Owner Sam Mardaie estimated approximately 80 to 100 people broke through his store’s front door and grabbed everything they could get their hands on.

    California Voices, ^ | JANUARY 6, 2019 | Dan Walters
    Gavin Newsom will be the first Democrat in more than a century to succeed another Democrat as governor and the succession also marks a big generational transition in California politics. A long-dominant geriatric quartet from the San Francisco Bay Area – Gov. Jerry Brown, Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – has been slowly ceding power to younger political strivers. Moreover, Newsom is succeeding someone who could be considered his quasi-uncle, since his inauguration continues the decades-long saga of four San Francisco families intertwined by blood, by marriage, by money, by culture and, of course,...

    California’s massive and ambitious project to connect downtown Los Angeles with the Bay Area via electric trains capable of reaching speeds of over 200 mph has cleared its biggest hurdle to date. On Thursday, the California High-Speed Rail Authority received complete environmental approval between the two regions, a historic milestone in a state notorious for holding up construction projects for environmental review.

    Schools in the progressive haven of San Francisco are facing a major budget crunch. Things are so dire that the district may have to actually close some schools. It’s amazing that these schools are having cash flow problems when you consider the taxes people pay to live there. Officials from the school district recently met with some financial experts who gave them some tough love. ... Late last week, two fiscal experts — appointed a few years ago to give guidance to the district — were authorized to suspend or reverse financial decisions made by the superintendent or school board....

    San Francisco Mayor London Breed has announced the San Francisco Reproductive Freedom Act, a ballot measure that would prevent city funds from being used to cooperate with out-of-state abortion prosecutions and create a fund to help people access abortions. It would also target pregnancy resource centers (PRCs), limiting their funding, and requiring signage for PRCs that state they do not commit abortions. Breed made her announcement during a press conference held at a local Planned Parenthood abortion business. In addition to the above objectives, she also signaled her intent to make it easier for abortion facilities to open in San...

    OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- A home owned by Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao was raided by the FBI Thursday morning, a source tells ABC7 News. A neighbor confirmed to ABC7 News that the FBI was in the Lincoln Highlands neighborhood in the Oakland Hills. Security footage from another neighbor shows the FBI on the property. The FBI provided this statement Thursday morning: "The FBI is conducting court authorized law enforcement activity on Maiden Lane. We are unable to provide additional information at this time."

    The San Francisco Standard ^ | June 11, 2024 | Kevin V. Nguyen
    Imagine San Francisco 18 years from now. That’s more than four mayoral terms, at least one fashion cycle and nearly one Van Ness rapid bus lane project away. Generation Alpha—who will be adults—will likely be calling Gen Z “out of touch” by then. And—according to new long-term projections from real estate firm Avison Young—San Francisco won’t be left with a glut of empty office buildings anymore. On that front, the situation midway through 2024 is pretty grim. The city has the highest vacancy rate of any major market in the country—at more than 30%. Using previous recovery periods as a...

    San Francisco has ranked as America's worst-run city, thanks to its looming $1.4 billion budget deficit and social problems from homelessness to crime and cash-strapped public schools. Researchers at WalletHub found that San Francisco was the worst-managed of all the 148 major cities assessed in its report, in a damning indictment of the administration of Mayor London Breed. The personal finance website ranked other big-name cities among the lowest-performing ten.

    The mayoral debate in San Francisco, California, took a bizarre turn after Democrat Mayor London Breed asked her challenger to name three LGBTQ advisers to his campaign as well as three drag queens in the city or prove his loyalty to the cause. Breed pitched the question during Monday’s debate, putting the five candidates on the same stage. They were each given the opportunity to ask a fellow candidate a question, and Breed used the opportunity to ask challenger Mark Farrell to prove his loyalty to the LGBTQ2S+ community by naming three drag queens in the city. “I’d like to...

    San Francisco recognized Pride Month differently this year — by declaring itself a sanctuary for transgender and gender non-conforming people. The city’s Board of Supervisors unanimously voted Tuesday in favor of the sanctuary status, making San Francisco one of the first major cities in the nation to do so. The resolution symbolically indicates those identifying as transgender, gender non-conforming, intersex and two-spirit are safe to seek transitioning health care and that providers are similarly safe, Los Angeles’ FOX 11 reported. “We have seen an influx of refugees, not just from other countries, but from other states who are seeking care...
