Whole Foods and Nordstrom are pulling out of San Francisco. Think about that – when you think of major American cities, it is New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco as the top four. I guess someone can dispute that but, tell me, where is the different city which has the cachet of those four? Nothing wrong, per se, with Boston or Dallas or Miami…but in the popular mind, when you think of American cities, you’re probably thinking of one of those four. So, San Francisco, one of America’s premier cities – a city famed throughout the world and which most foreigners could name – is losing two major retailers. Why?

Crime. Filth. Social chaos.

It is really nothing more than that – it is impossible to do business in a city where the police simply will not protect order and prevent crime. Reading about Whole Foods, it sounds like since their store was opened last year it has been a happy hunting ground not just for shoplifters and vandals, but simple crazies who would destroy food, get into fights and defecate on the floor. These are not small outfits who can’t absorb the normal extra expense of people in a major city center…these are big players, and they just can’t take it.

Now, imagine how it is for the small fry – and they can’t leave. It is sink or swim with San Francisco.

Its all deliberate and malicious, by the way – the Left is doing this on purpose to punish people for not being sufficiently Maoist. How long can this go on before there is a reaction? Don’t know. One of the marks of being a Progressive is a willingness to put up with a lot if the Party demands it. Solzhenitsyn wrote of Communists in Gulag sending endless appeals to Stalin…begging the man who sent them to prison for nothing to let them out again…or, failing that, allow them to run the prison. The greatest fear of the Godless is to be cast out from society. So, San Francisco and other cities may get quite a lot worse before someone living there, say, votes for a Republican.

The Navy has hired a non-binary drag queen to help with recruitment. Recruiting what, I can’t imagine. This is not my Navy any longer. I would advise any young man out there considering service to just stay out. If you’re not to be sent to fight a war you won’t be allowed to win, you’ll be turned on your own people one of these days. The good news is that the military is falling far short of recruitment goals – seems like middle and working class white people (who have always made up the overwhelming bulk of service members – especially in the combat arms) aren’t interested in serving right now.

The latest trans to make a splash is a odd ball in Montana – broke the rules of the Legislature and got the boot. But here’s the kicker – such was able to get elected in Montana. Shows that even in the deepest Red States, we’ve allowed the Progressive cancer to grow. It is usually in the towns with a large college. The problem here is that the professors and administrators of these colleges are all imports from Blue areas, or are people who went to Blue areas and were propagandized into being Commies. We must take control of our Red State higher education. Start booting out the Commies and hiring people who agree with us to teach and administer. This, by the way, helps us two ways – it takes away power and influence from the Left and if we do it, then our colleges will be providing real education. This is going to be crucial going forward because when its time to staff agencies and business, when the hiring people are given a choice between Ivy League Woke and Red State Educated, our people will get picked simply because they’ll be capable.

The boycott of Bud Light has been a phenomenal success – but, it was easy, wasn’t it? All across America beer drinkers can just reach for the Coors Light rather than the gay beer. Don’t know how Bud Light comes back from this.
