  • San Francisco’s perverse incentive to identify as transgender

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 25, 2022 | Jay Richards & Jamie Hall
    Imagine that a progressive American city creates a financial incentive for residents to “transition” from man to woman or from woman to man. That’s exactly what San Francisco has just done with a program called Guaranteed Income for Transgender People, or GIFT . This is like using a fire hose to spray a burning skyscraper with gasoline. Talk about perverse incentives. Anyone want to bet that, if this program expands, the number of San Francisco’s poor who say they identify as transgender also will expand? Of course, San Francisco already is a lab for bad policy ideas. But giving guaranteed...
  • THE WRATH OF NANCY: NBC Correspondent Miguel Almaguer Suspended After Viral Report on Paul Pelosi and David DePape

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 11/14/2022 | Jim Hoft
    On Monday The Daily Beast announced that NBC reporter Miquil Almaguer was suspended following his report on Paul Pelosi. NBC News pulled their bombshell report in early November by Miguel Almaguer on the attack on Paul Pelosi that included details that contradicted the narrative in the federal charging papers against accused attacker David DePape. The video of a report that aired on the Today Show was pulled across several platforms after The Gateway Pundit reported the contradictions-which was not noted by NBC in their report. A report by NBC on a third person in the Pelosi home at the time...

  • Dead fish are piling up on San Francisco Bay Area shores: A toxic algae bloom is the likely cause

    Phys.org ^ | 9/2/2022 | Wyatte Grantham-Philips
    Thousands of dead fish and other marine life carcasses are washing ashore in the San Francisco Bay Area, creating a foul smell. Experts point to an unprecedented "red tide" algae bloom as the mostly likely cause. Abnormal numbers of dead crabs, bat rays, striped bass, white sturgeon and more have been spotted throughout the Bay area over the last week, officials say, notably at Oakland's Lake Merritt. The start of the fish die-off could date back even further—as the harmful algae bloom has been spreading since late July. The carcasses are worrying environmental scientists, as they mark a devastating loss...

    New San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins fired 15 people in her office on Friday, with one in particular prompting an outcry. It comes in the first week after Jenkins was appointed by Mayor London Breed following the recall of Chesa Boudin. "Today, I made difficult, but important changes to my management team and staff that will help advance my vision to restore a sense of safety in San Francisco by holding serious and repeat offenders accountable and implementing smart criminal justice reforms," Jenkins said in a statement. Managing Attorney Arcelia Hurtado was the first member of the office to...

    The names of the tech workers in this story have been changed.Ten thousand miles from Silicon Valley, in a room near the Black Sea, Yegor Karpenchekov dreams of money. At night, while the rest of Odessa sleeps and cocaine smugglers drift in and out of the port under cover of darkness, Yegor logs onto FaceTime and talks to a 70-year-old woman in San Francisco. Her name is Sally Faubion, and five months ago she recruited Yegor from the freelancer marketplace UpWork to code her apps. She believes "divine intervention" brought them together; for Yegor, it was likely $20 per hour...
  • Son of Brinks Robbery convicts removed as San Francisco DA

    06/08/2022 11:51:15 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 13 replies
    San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin, the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert -- both convicted for their roles in the deadly Brink's robbery in Rockland County, was removed from office overnight after a heated recall. Many felt he was inexperienced and avoided charging criminals, siding with offenders over victims. But his supporters say his platform is in line with voters who approved measures to reduce sentences. Recalls are increasingly being used in California. You likely remember Gov. Gavin Newsom easily survived one in September. Many political pundits are saying this is a signal to Democrats nationwide to fine-tune their...

    Hundreds of residents of a luxury downtown San Francisco apartment building, 33 Tehama, were evacuated with a moment's notice from their homes on Friday after a burst water pipe flooded every floor of the building. Now they say they have no idea when they may be able to return, or where they will live as they wait. All 35 floors of the high-end SoMa tower were impacted on Friday after a 6-inch pipe burst on the roof or top floor and water started gushing through hallways and rooms. "On the second floor, water was dripping from the ceiling. It was...

    A San Francisco Bay Area gas station is charging nearly $8 per gallon ahead of Memorial Day weekend as California’s average price continues to trend upward, ABC’s KABC-TV 7 reported on Tuesday. The Chevron station in Menlo Park, California, was pictured offering regular gasoline to customers at a price of $7.25 per gallon, with its higher-octane gasoline hitting $7.75 per gallon. Gas prices are spiking across the country at shocking rates. In California alone, gasoline has gone up almost $2 per gallon over the last year. That number over the same period nationwide is $1.61, according to The Daily Wire....

    The Concert (at a Church) Memorializing Those Who Have Died on the Street, was announced just once in my hearing, on SF Classical KDFC (sister station of KUSC Los Angeles). I think they realized how ridiculous it is because nowhere could the announcement be found on the station calendar or on Google searching the SF Bay area. I think they buried it. This is at the same time that a headline was carried in the (UK) Daily Mail: The rich door and the poor door: Terrified millionaire residents of luxury San Fran condo building hit out after adjoining alleyway becomes...
  • San Francisco DA faces second recall effort as residents 'fed up' with progressive 'zero consequence' policies

    Fox News ^ | 10/26/21 | Danielle Wallace
    A second recall effort launched against San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin demonstrates how residents are "fed up" with his progressive policies, as his push to reduce jail funding and refusal to prosecute repeat offenders ensures the streets remain marred with open-air drug dealing and violent crime now stretching into the suburbs, a leader of the prominent local police union tells Fox News. Last week, the first Republican-backed recall effort fell just 1,714 signatures short of the 51,325 required to trigger a special election to bring the question of ousting Boudin before voters. Now a second recall effort is being...

    A San Francisco In-N-Out Burger was temporarily shut down after employees allegedly did not check for customers' vaccine documents, in violation of the city's vaccine requirement. In San Francisco, people have been required since August 20 to show proof that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to enter some indoor places like restaurants, gyms and bars. The fast-food restaurant located in Fisherman's Wharf was forced to shut down on October 14 but has since reopened with indoor dining remaining unavailable, the company said in a statement to Newsweek.

    Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins was denied Friday in his quest for a religious exemption by the NBA to San Francisco’s vaccine requirement. Wiggins has steadfastly refused to get the vaccine, according to a report this week from the San Francisco Chronicle. Since the city requires vaccination for everyone at large, indoor gatherings — such as basketball games — the veteran forward will not be able to play in any home games if he remains resistant to getting the shot. It’s possible he won’t be able to play at a number of road arenas that also require vaccination.

  • Update: San Francisco Gay Man’s Choir Frantically Tries to Pull Down Video Promising to Convert Your Children; Trying to “Control the Narrative”

    On Thursday, TGP reported on a video where the San Francisco Gay Man’s Choir promised to convert your children quietly and subtly. Their ‘joke’ fell completely flat because it was an eerie reminder of the constant push by media and education to sexualize and pro-trans the kids. The video had received 88 likes and over 5,000 dislikes before it was made private, according to The Post Millennial. After massive blowback, the group is now “working around the clock” to take “control of the narrative.” They issued a statement on Thursday night, putting blame on far-right conservative media for taking it...

    Californians are fleeing the state to live where they can find more affordable housing, better schools, and a more rural lifestyle. A large percentage of them are choosing Austin, Texas. The San Francisco Chronicle reported on the phenomenon of more people opting for permanent telework in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the trend of people choosing to live in GOP-led states that didn’t impose draconian lockdowns: Experts say Austin’s boom, particularly during the pandemic, has been accelerated by Californians and Bay Area giants like Apple, Facebook, Google and Tesla that are all hiring in Austin. Last year, a...

    San Francisco Mayor London Breed released a plan Thursday to redistribute $120 million from the city’s law enforcement budget to projects aimed at helping the city’s black minority. Bay Area public radio station KQED reported: San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Thursday announced a plan for how the city will spend $120 million over the next two years, pulled from law enforcement budgets, to reinvest in the city’s long-underserved Black communities. “The Dream Keeper Initiative,” as it’s dubbed, increases investments in workforce development, health campaigns, youth and cultural programs and housing support. The allocations reflect spending priorities conveyed by Black...
