Data shows that in 2020 drug overdoses killed more than 700 people in San Francisco, while the coronavirus killed fewer than 300. Worse, the overdoses are even worse this year.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle:

San Francisco suffered an epidemic in 2020 that was more deadly than COVID-19. Drug overdoses resulted in more than 700 deaths last year, while the communicable disease declared a global pandemic killed fewer than 300 — and 2021 looks to be even worse.

This year’s preliminary tally of 252 accidental overdose deaths from January to April, which is the latest available through the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, suggests San Francisco is on track to surpass 2020 in overdose deaths, which was a record-breaking year itself — 181 people fatally overdosed over the same time period in 2021.

Accidental overdose deaths in San Francisco have risen sharply in recent years. The number of deaths in just the first four months of 2021 exceeds 2017’s annual total of 222. The chief medical examiner’s data shows that overdose fatalities in San Francisco began to skyrocket in 2019, when fentanyl entered the city’s drug supply.

Chinese fentanyl has become the worst scourge in the country with tens of thousands dead in the last few decades.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently decried the rise in fentanyl deaths and noted that deaths in his state are up 800 percent in the age of Biden.

Abbot appeared on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” last Friday to blast Biden for his lax policies that invite the drug cartels to take advantage of the lack of enforcement.

Abbott (R) said there has been a nearly “800% increase April over April” in the amount of fentanyl coming across the border apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety. He added that there has been enough fentanyl obtained to kill everyone in the state of New York.

Despite the facts, Biden rescinded an executive order signed by President Trump to allow almost all doctors to prescribe buprenorphine, a treatment for opioid addiction.

The Posh Get Sloshed! Affluent Greenwich Village Overrun by Drunks and Drugs

Another Democrat-run city turns chaotic.

Published

There has been plenty of talk of late about the great liberal migration, in which cities like New York and San Fransisco are hemorrhaging citizens on account of Democratic policies. The policies often see crime and taxes spike simultaneously, which shouldn’t make sense at all.  If the government is getting more money, there should be less trouble, right? Wrong.  And even in the ritziest parts of some of these liberal cities, the situation is getting out of hand. New York City’s Greenwich Village is home to movie stars and other big-name celebrities – and lately, a host of crime and violence issues both inside a local park and on the neighborhood’s streets. Just Wednesday, the New York Police Department (NYPD) announced it was looking for a man who broke into a Greenwich Village apartment and rubbed his penis on a 10-year-old girl’s feet. The man is believed to have slipped into the apartment through a fire escape around 1 a.m. on June 11, police said. The girl awoke to find the man standing at the edge of her bed. And that’s not all: Locals also told the Post drug use has been more prominent than they’ve ever seen. “I know drugs have been in Washington Square Park for a long time, but I have never seen anything like this before,” neighborhood resident Jennifer Nyp told the news site. Ruth Wyatt, who has lived near the park for more than two decades, told the Post: “The situation in the park and its surroundings has gotten out of control.” At the beginning of June, the news of crime and rampant drug use inside the famed park prompted the NYPD to move the park’s midnight curfew up to 10 p.m. But chaos ensued between people within the park and police who arrived to…

Kim Jong Un Threatens Military Battle with USA in Latest Rant

The predictable escalation received little response on the world’s stage, however.

Kim Jong Un

The unhinged nature of North Korea was on display again this week, as “Supreme” Leader Kim Jong Un began his nearly-predictable threats against the United States. Kim, and those who came before him, have long employed a strategy of raising a large fuss on the world stage to get attention, and then backing down from those inane threats only if they get something in return.  Often, the requests have to do with lifting sanctions or aid, as the tiny hermit kingdom is far from capable of even feeding its own people. And so, as was always going to happen, North Korea put on their war pants this week and started strutting around. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered his government to be prepared for both dialogue and confrontation with the Biden administration — but more for confrontation, state media reported Friday, days after the United States and others urged the North to abandon its nuclear program and return to talks. Kim’s statement indicates he’ll likely push to strength his nuclear arsenal and increase pressure on Washington to give up what North Korea considers a hostile U.S. policy, though he’ll also prepare for talks to resume, some experts say. Why now? Earlier this week, leaders of the Group of Seven wealthy nations issued a statement calling for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and “the verifiable and irreversible abandonment” North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. They called on North Korea to engage and resume dialogue and respect human rights conditions. Sung Kim, the top U.S. official on North Korea, is to visit Seoul on Saturday for a trilateral meeting with South Korean and Japanese officials. His travel emphasizes the importance of the trilateral cooperation in working toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the State Department said Thursday. Kim…
