If there’s anywhere in the country that shows the bad results of years of bad Democratic policies, it’s San Francisco.
They can’t blame Republicans for what the once beautiful city has become — its downfall has been completely at the hands of the Democrats who have been in charge.
You would have thought that having a high-profile person in a great position of authority for many years — former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — that might have helped the city. But she’s been supportive of progressives, and the city has fallen to crime and drugs.
Instead, this is the kind of thing that you see now.

As we’ve written before, stores have been locking down or fleeing. Target locked down its entire product range behind security glass. Nordstrom bailed out of the two stores it had there and T-Mobile even shut down its flagship store. Whole Foods left within a year and Park Hotels also bailed.
While stores are fleeing, the media is writing about how much you can make as a drug dealer in the area. Can we talk about how twisted that all is and how lost San Francisco is when they are in this kind of a position?
Successful drug dealers can make $350,000 a year or more, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
The base pay for a senior software engineer at Google is around $211,000 or more. [….]
The money has become an attractive albeit dangerous calling card for some Honduran migrants who hope to flee poverty and violence in their home villages. According to the Chronicle, Honduran migrants — mostly from Siria Valley, north of Honduras’ capital Tegucigalpa — dominate the open-air drug trade prevalent in the Tenderloin and South of Market neighborhoods.
The drug business is now resulting in a housing boom in some areas of Honduras to where they’re sending the money. Is this what Joe Biden meant when he said improving the “physical structure” so illegal aliens don’t have to come here?
But if you truly wanted another example of how bad it is in San Francisco, it would have to be this story.
Officials at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services advised hundreds of employees in San Francisco to work remotely for the foreseeable future due to public safety concerns outside the Nancy Pelosi Federal Building on Seventh Street.
The imposing, 18-story tower on the corner of Seventh and Mission streets houses various federal agencies, including HHS, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the office of Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi. The area is also home to one of the city’s most brazen open-air drug markets, where dozens of dealers and users congregate on a daily basis.
HHS Assistant Secretary for Administration Cheryl R. Campbell issued the stay-home recommendation in an Aug. 4 memo to regional leaders.
“In light of the conditions at the (Federal Building) we recommend employees … maximize the use of telework for the foreseeable future,” Campbell wrote in the memo, a copy of which was obtained by The Chronicle.
What’s the name of that building? It’s the Nancy Pelosi Federal Building. Now let’s start with why anyone would name a building after Pelosi. But there’s so much crime that can’t even ensure the safety of the people that work there, they’re just telling them to stay home. Doesn’t that say everything in one appropriately named building? Here’s some video of what it’s allegedly like nearby. No wonder people are told to stay home.
Now the answer should be to shut down the open-air drug selling in the area. But that would make too much sense, instead let’s tell the people to stay home from work. Yet Democrats will stick their heads in the sand on this and pretend like they’re in “recovery.”
Yesterday, Mayor @LondonBreed said that downtown San Francisco is in “recovery.” In fact, the area around the Nancy Pelosi Federal Building downtown is so dangerous, due to open air drug dealing and crime, that HHS has urged federal employees to work from home. pic.twitter.com/wOFjdTbMsD
