According to this new story over at Fellowship of the Minds which was reporting on a recent interview done by Dr. Drew Pinsky, many of America's big cities are approaching unlivable conditions, with Dr. Pinsky going so far as to compare the conditions in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles to those in Calcutta. Warning of the potential of life threatening illnesses in the cities turning into very real 'plague' conditions, with Medieval diseases already returning to them, we've long been warned to pay very close attention to what is happening in big US cities to get an indication of where America is going.
On May 23, the Calcutta-like conditions of Los Angeles — California’s biggest city and the second largest U.S. city in population, numbering 4 million — prompted famous TV addiction medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky to predict a major infectious disease epidemic this summer.
A week later, after news that an L.A. police officer had contracted typhoid fever, a rare and life-threatening illness that fewer than 350 Americans contract each year, Dr. Drew repeated his prediction, saying that he believes bubonic plague — a pandemic that killed tens of millions of people during the 14th century – “likely” is already present in Los Angeles.
Last Thursday night, May 30, 2019, on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Dr. Drew said:
“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now. We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, (and) rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down.
We have a typhus outbreak last summer; we’ll have a typhus outbreak this summer. I’m hearing from experts that bubonic plague is likely already here…. And finally, we have this fecal-group contamination, which is typhoid fever — three cases, one confirmed, probably three. This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I live in a city where this is not Third World.
This is medieval. Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk. And God forbid…if measles gets in, I just have an image of myself on my knees in the gutter attending to people. This summer is likely to be a very profound problem….
And while Dr. Pinsky tackles the 3rd world diseases that are now proliferating thanks to the conditions in Democrat-run cities, what he doesn't mention is the potential spread of ebola within such cities and the unimaginable results should an ebola outbreak suddenly take Los Angeles or San Francisco or any other big city by storm and totally unprepared.
Given news from our “left coast” bastions of progressive governance, “woke” cultural, political wisdom and subsequent societal degeneration, one cannot avoid the shock, even disgust, at the plague of homelessness, drug usage and accompanying filth. Diseases—rightly, proudly thought eradicated since pre-enlightened, backward societies—now show up in supposedly advanced metropolises like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.
We notice reports on news media, in articles, recordings and essays, with documentation, anecdotes and studies. Understandably, those with the means are migrating to less degeneration-friendly locales not dominated by the progressive Democratic elite. That ironically dovetails with the bunkering of the well-off in walled (funny, that) enclaves with gated access, even private security.
It’s as if those with political power overlap the economically wealthy among the information industries benefiting from cheap workers. Remarkably, their values oppose development and support protecting open spaces from “sprawl,” defined as the “BANANA” approach (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anybody— “anybody” being themselves). Have they even heard of the “law of supply and demand”? The dearth of housing development creates unaffordable units of legacy housing.
Then enter the new, enlightened world guided by an aversion to telling anyone or any group “No!” No, you may not set up camp, roll out sleeping bags, or endlessly reside in your RV at a public curb or space. No, you may not use drugs in those same public spaces. No, the addicts and obvious mentally ill will not be tolerated among the otherwise law-abiding and well-behaved homeless. No, the outdoors is not your trash receptacle and toilet.
That all seems unnecessarily harsh. Unnecessary, perhaps, until those being effectively told “anything goes,” “make up your own rules” while living free and easy absent any kind of traditional responsibility, begin to overwhelm the space they occupy. Too harsh unless such overflowing encampments force themselves on the taxpaying, working, upstanding residents of what were once tidy, safe neighborhoods. Too harsh until kids start finding needles and condoms and feel scared to walk to school.
Getting and keeping a job is such an imposition on a lifestyle of sleeping in and declining personal hygiene. Staying alcohol- and drug-free, acting responsibly with good work habits, saving one’s earnings and avoiding the company of druggies, bums and criminals—you must be joking to ask that from people. What a hater you must be. As Deputy Barney Fife would say, “Nip it! Nip it in the bud!” That time is long passed for the above listed cities. Can we say “no”?
It starts “Why are Democrat-run cities such hellholes of infectious disease and humanitarian catastrophe?" And don’t even get me going about San Francisco, where the current California Governor Gavin Newsom left behind a legacy of human feces, heroin junkies shooting up on the sidewalks, and progressive NIMBY losers turning away with indifference. California really is a lost cause.” Rest assured, Red Bluff will never join that trend, will it?
As mentioned previously, according to this new story over at the Chicago Tribune the Drudge Report had linked to, more than 52 people were shot, with at least 8 killed, all across Chicago over the weekend. Called the most violent weekend of the year there by far, the Chicago Tribune story doesn't even mention that the city of Chicago is a 'gun free zone'.
At least 52 people were shot, eight of them fatally, across Chicago over the weekend, the most violent of the year as summer gets underway, with a toll even higher than during the long Memorial Day holiday just a week earlier.
More than half the victims were wounded during a 12-hour burst of gunfire from Friday evening to Saturday morning. At least four of the 31 people shot during that time died after attacks on the West and South sides. At least one other person over the weekend was fatally stabbed, bringing the homicide toll to nine.
The level of violence, which typically spikes during the summer months, eclipsed that of the three-day Memorial Day weekend when at least 43 people were shot, seven of them fatally. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson held a news conference Monday morning, calling the level of violence “despicable.”
Yet as Milne news had reported just days ago within this story titled "The truth about gun-free zones the Democrats and mainstream media won’t talk about", almost all mass shooting across America take place where cowardly criminals or terrorists choose to go; places where nobody there will be armed to shoot back at them so they can inflict maximum carnage.
The cold hard truth is that gun-free zones have proven to be far from effective. Gun-free zones have only managed to accomplish two entirely different things:
(1) it transforms a law-abiding citizen into a criminal simply because he chooses to ignore the sign opting to remain armed for the protection of the helpless potential victims within that area.
(2) it welcomes and encourages real criminals by advertising target-rich virtually resistance-free environments.
And while Democrats and other media and government talking heads want to draw your focus and attention on and seek to criminalize the type of weapon used in mass shootings, an obvious fact rears its head through all the propaganda. See if you can figure out what that is:
Columbine High School – 13 killed – gun-free zone
Aurora Colorado movie theater – 12 killed, 58 wounded – gun-free zone
Edmond Oklahoma post office – 14 killed – gun-free zone
University of Texas – 18 killed – gun-free zone
Washington Navy Yard – 12 dead – gun-free zone
Luby’s restaurant in Killian Texas – 23 killed – gun-free zone
Fort Hood military base – 13 killed – gun-free zone
Borderline Bar & Grill – 13 killed – gun free zone
Virginia Tech – 32 killed – gun-free zone
Sandy Hook elementary school – 27 killed – gun free zone
Virginia Beach – 12 killed, 6 injured – gun free zone
Chicago – mass shooting capital – gun free zone
That’s right, As you can see from the cases above all the shooters took advantage of the ‘safe zone’ in order to cowardly carry out their horrific mass murders.
Any gunmen or terrorist is smart enough to know that they can kill more people if they attack places where victims can’t defend themselves. That’s one reason why 98% of mass public shootings since 1950 have occurred in places where citizens are banned from having guns.
So with Democrat-run big cities across America turning into unlivable, disease and crime ridden cesspools while these same Democrats attempt to tell the rest of the country how to run our lives, insanely thinking that they hold some kind of 'high moral ground' over the rest of us while their cities and states totally fall apart, we pray that Americans are prepared for absolutely anything and everything in the days ahead as we enter the 'dog days of summer' and big US cities become unglued. Where will the unprepared city masses go if things really take a turn for the worse? Be prepared, America!
