As America’s cities continue to become overrun with a crisis of drugs, gangs, violence, and homelessness, State and local authorities seem to have become numb to the crisis that has reached monumental proportions!
One America News reported that…
The Trump administration is ready to help tackle California’s homelessness crisis. During an interview Monday, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said President Trump is passionate about combating homelessness in the state. In the past few month’s, the president has made it clear that he is interested in cleaning up California’s large cities.
“Our beautiful California is a disgrace to our country, it’s a shame, the world is looking at it,” stated the president. “Look at Los Angeles with the tents and the horrible, horrible, disgusting conditions…look at San Francisco…look at some of your other cities.”
Homelessness has been on the rise in California in recent years with the Housing Department estimating around 130,000 people were homeless in the Golden State last year. This data represents nearly a quarter of all homeless people in the entire country.
Looking even further, the state currently holds nearly 30-percent of the country’s homeless veterans, which accounts for nearly 11,000 people.
Both Carson and Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere blame on over-regulation and excessive taxation for the state’s flood of homelessness.
Nonetheless, state and local officials have been working on a number of Housing and Urban Development projects in an attempt to address the issue. However, it’s becoming increasingly clear that federal intervention may be necessary.
This week, multiple Trump administration officials toured California in hopes of addressing the problem, particularly in large cities such as San Francisco and Los Angeles. The delegation was lead by White House domestic policy assistant Ben Hobbs, and included officials from multiple departments. It was meant to scope out areas most impacted by the crisis, so the administration can eventually co-op a tenable solution.
In the meantime, the White House has said it’s considering a wide range of options in combating the epidemic.
Sadly it has had to come to the federal government providing assistance to Democrat-led cities and states, as Socialist-subscribing Democrats continue to claim that they have all the answers to the world, homelessness, pay, drug abuse, crime, and even global warming! Meanwhile, those problems have not only increased, but they have flourished exponentially! In fact, under the Obama Administration, the Washington Free Beacon reported…
Researchers were awarded more than $4 million by the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency to study whether exposure to air pollution led children to eat more fast food.
The $4,146,875 grant was awarded in 2013 to fund a five-year study at the University of Southern California into whether proximity to “near-roadway air pollution” was a contributing factor in childhood obesity.
But, ridiculous and expensive expenditures of taxpayer money didn’t stop at linking global warming to childhood obesity! In fact, it has led to countless programs in California, designed to show the compassion of the left towards the homeless, criminal elements, drug abusers, and the mentally ill! However, the left’s policies of compassion have led to some of the most massive and incompassionate outcomes in the history of California, coupled with one of the greatest deficits in California history!
It is ironic, as San Francisco is a city with a record number of billionaires, who subscribe to a Marxist ideology that is designed to preserve their own wealth and power while stifling the hopes and dreams of the rest of mankind! As a result of their Marxist and Socialist policies, their streets are riddled with homeless, as their people lose their homes, and are cast into their streets! Their left-wing ideological agenda has created a growing class of drug users, as they hand out State-issued needles, which they claim will help stop the spread of disease! Meanwhile, it has magnified the sheer number of drug users, and consequently, the diseases have become widespread! Also, it has left thousands of people no other option, but to eat from garbage cans, and to urinate and defecate on the streets! Now, as a result of an exploding homeless population, a massive number of drug users, and the mere numbers residing on the streets, California cities like San Francisco are becoming covered in feces, which has led the city to spend millions on cleanup efforts like needle pickup patrols, and poop patrols! The poop patrols job is to pick up poop on the city streets, and pays nearly $200,000 per year, just for cleaning up the poop!
However, the sheer mass of poop on the streets of cities like Las Vegas, Seattle, and San Francisco have led to rats, and when we say rats, we say LOTS OF RATS! Unfortunately for the residents of California, rats carry fleas, and fleas carry disease! As a result, the bubonic plague, typhus, and a number of other Middle Age diseases have plagued a once beautiful land! Now, even the tourism industry has been devastated by their left-wing policies!
Now, even as California governor and city mayors have tried to remedy the situation by implementing even more severe Socialist so-called solutions, it has further led to even greater problems! In fact, in Nancy Pelosi’s district, which is the heart of the Socialist delusion, they proposed building a homeless center near the city’s waterfront. However, the wealthy Elitists like Nancy Pelosi are not having it, as they have heckled the San Francisco Mayor Landon Breed, as they refuse to allow the poor, the needy, the helpless, whom they have cast down, dare be allowed to reside any closer to their back door! Fox News even reported that the wealthy billionaires have created online fundraisers! Mayor Breed responded to the opponents by stating…
“Homelessness is the number one problem that we face in our city. You cannot be upset about homelessness and then when I propose a real solution, then you’re upset about it.”
Over the past few years, Democrats have embraced, more and more, a notion of what they call ‘democratic socialism’, as they claim it is a new type of Socialism, that benefits the people! Bernie Sanders and so-called Democratic Socialists define it as…
“When The 99% Stand Up Against the 1%”
However, does it really represent the 99%? In truth, NO! In fact, the very idea of ‘Democratic Socialism’ is a fiction, an oxymoron, and a mythological idea! In fact, any kind of Socialism, as defined by proponents and opponents, as the absence of private property. Therefore, it results at the end of individuals and corporations owning, improving, and exchanging resources, goods, and services. The elimination of private property is a central feature of socialism.
Meanwhile, no matter how you serve it up, how you dress it, or how you glorify Socialism, other nations have repeatedly tried the same Socialist slop that Bernie Sanders, Ocosio-Cortez, and other Democrats are trying to shove down the throats of the American people, regardless of Socialist nations being unable to maintain their struggling countries, and many have failed altogether throughout history!
Just one example is Venezuela, where a proud Socialist Hugo Chavez, was elected overwhelmingly in 1999 as President! He destroyed the Democratic institutions once he took power, and the nation spiraled from one of the most wealthy and prosperous nations on the planet to a nation where homelessness, rationing, drug abuse, and other problems ravaged the streets! Now, the streets are covered with the desperate and hungry, as they eat out of trashcans, and are left desperate for handouts from the government, which they won’t get!
Now, throughout pockets of America, there are states and cities who have become completely controlled by so-called Democratic Socialists, as they pleaded with their voters to put them into office, and they would show ‘compassion’ towards the poor, the homeless, the criminals, and the drug afflicted! As a result, cities like Seattle, New York, San Francisco, Sacramento, Chicago, Portland, and even entire states like California have become wholly or predominantly controlled by pro-socialist Democrats! Now, as a result of the voters giving them power, they have decimated businesses, corporations, and entire industries, in their effort to control all aspects of economic activity! That has resulted in a restriction of the citizen’s available choices and decisions, and a loss of the individual’s political power over the government! Also, it has resulted in massive economic contractions, as businesses, corporations, and industries leave Democrat-controlled areas! Now, as a result of Marxist based legislation, it has led to massive job losses, home foreclosures, skyrocketing mortgages, and economic instability! That has led to homelessness, skyrocketing drug abuse, mental issues, and so much more!
Now, in cities across the nation, what started out as an alleged ‘movement of compassion’, has become incompassionate! A movement that was said to be for the good of the 99%, has ravaged those very people, only to further enrich and empower the 1%, as the political elites gain power and wealth, while the 99% falls into desperation and dependence!
Today, the false idea of Democratic Socialism has misled entire cities and states to abandon the needs of each individual, for the good of the Elites, whether it is the Political, Social, or Fiscal Elites! Meanwhile, like all good Marxists, they have embraced and pushed the ideological concept of Socialism on their constituents, in their effort to control all aspects of economic activity, and to restrict the available choices and decisions of individuals, including political power of those individuals!
Sadly, history would tell us that Socialism has always led to the end of private property and markets, impoverishment, desperation, and even death! Ultimately, socialism is incompatible with democracy because democracy empowers the individual. Democracy tolerates dissent, individual differences, compromise! All of these ideals are impossible through Socialism, regardless of Socialism’s political and structural framework, whether it be a Dictatorship, Monarchy, Marxism, or a fancy and false-flag ideology like ‘Democratic Socialism’!
Ironically, Socialism cannot succeed without capital, which is why Margaret Thatcher’s famous quote came to a realization! In fact, Thatcher so eloquently said…
After all, without capital, economic growth and justice have no sustainable sponsor! Therefore, Socialist or government-owned enterprises are starved for capital, such as roadways, subways, water and sewer systems. Also, public utilities fail, as municipal finance would have no exchange and no investors, and it all would lead to derelict infrastructure everywhere.
Now, as a result of the radical left-wing Socialist/Marxist, or as they put it… ‘Democratic Socialist’ policies, too many American cities are faltering and failing, as they strip political and economic power from the people! Too many cities are falling into crime, as the people lose their homes, live on the streets, eat from trash cans, become addicted to drugs, and become desperate! As a result, too many American cities are becoming saturated with feces, drug needles, tents and shanty’s, as well as dilapidated! AND ALL THANKS TO WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, WHETHER YOU CALL IT MARXISM, COMMUNISM, FASCISM, SOCIALISM, OR DEMOCRATIC-SOCIALISM because they are all the same! A concentration of power and wealth from the hands of the many, into the hands of a few!
The following video shows the true cost of those left-wing Socialist policies that are already being embraced and realized in the United States of America, as it consumes entire cities and states! Sadly, too many left-wing Democrat-controlled cities and states are leading their constituents into the ‘third-world’ realm of poverty, sickness, disease, and death, and at record speed!

Ultimately, as the Democrats implementation of Socialism for their own power and greed, and the subsequent repercussions that followed, have become overwhelmingly glaring, as well as, disheartening, as California and other cities, have shown themselves, to be on the verge of becoming another Venezuela, as it has ravaged the once-shining cities in America with sickness, desperation, drug additions, violence, homelessness, and a lack of hope! Hopefully, President Trump and his Administration can solve their crisis, as he looks to eradicate the root cause of their crisis, and that is Socialism itself!
