SAN FRANCISCO HAS 'GONE TO HELL' SAY COMMUNITY LEADERS
- All of the buildings in downtown San Francisco are cracking and
- Drugs and douche-bags everywhere
- Stupid soy boys and naive millennial posers at every corner
- Increasingly corrupt politicians thriving on Dark Money
Francisco and Silicon Valley are both run by the same dynastic
criminally corrupt families and sick perverted insiders. They send their
kids to Stanford University where they indoctrinate and brainwash the
next generation into a culture of greed, sex, political bribery and
Sandhill Road collusion. San Francisco City Hall is powered by hookers,
sex and kick-backs. Every attendee at the San Francisco Symphony and

siphon off taxpayers money into their personal construction and real

the crimes. If you think the FBI arrests of Northern California
political criminals is going good, know that they FBI has a backlog that
is years long. An FBI forensic accounting investigation of the CPA files

Gilles Desaulniers moved to San Francisco 40
years ago, settling in the ‘friendly, quaint and affordable’ city after
running out of cash while driving from Canada down the West

Today he runs a grocery store filled with
fresh fruit, vegan snacks and organic wines typical of this famously
liberal Californian city.
But Gilles has shut one outlet and would
sell up entirely if anyone wanted this one, his remaining shop.
Each day, up to 30 people stroll in and

Downtown visitors cannot fail to witness the
distressing evidence. Almost instantly after I arrived, I saw three
people smoking crystal meth through glass pipes, then others with the
facial scabs and sores associated with this destructive drug. One man
with matted hair sat slumped in a stupor wearing just grubby underpants.
Another, clearly under the influence of
heroin, had ‘nodded off’ and was static on a child’s bicycle. A third
urinated on the street. A woman changed her clothes from a tatty
suitcase on the pavement.
Others shuffled pathetically or rolled
slowly along the street in wheelchairs. Some were clearly suffering
mental distress, such as a man in his 50s begging for cash who told me
he was waiting for his air force pension.
A street cleaner showed me a box filled with
used syringes that he had collected, then I met two charity workers
picking up needles from the pavement.

found numbers twice as high and rising faster.
City authorities claim their key problem is
the high cost of housing combined with past failures to build enough
properties. But many blame something simpler to solve: the lack of law
‘When you tell vagrants that anything goes,
it leads to the anarchy you see on these streets,’ says Heather
MacDonald, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute think-tank and a
She believes we are witnessing a ‘real-life
experiment’ into what happens if society stops enforcing bourgeois norms
out of sensitivity to vulnerable people.
MacDonald argues that the city authorities
are culpable, fuelling drug addiction by doling out 4.5 million needles
a year when there is nothing compassionate about giving addicts and
mentally ill people the freedom to ‘decompose’ on the streets.
Much of what she says is backed by Thomas
Wolf, 49, who lost his job and family after becoming addicted to opioid
painkillers following foot surgery, then moving on to cheaper heroin and
ending up homeless in his native city.
‘It is a cycle of despair,’ he says. ‘I was
heartbroken at losing my wife and kids but all I cared about was drugs.
I hated being on the streets but I loved the easy access to drugs.
‘Yet there’s such denial that if you’d have
asked me if I had a problem, I’d have said no.’
Wolf, who now works for the Salvation Army
helping homeless people rebuild lives and has just been appointed to a
specialist civic taskforce, sees untreated addiction as the root cause
of the city’s problem. He says most people living on the streets are
hooked on either drugs or drink.
‘If you see someone shouting at the wall, it
is crystal meth, not mental illness – although meth might have destroyed
Wolf claims that while the city distributes
drug paraphernalia, he was never asked to quit or offered help. He says
many users sell their monthly welfare $190 food stamps on receipt to go
on a binge. And he wants to see generous welfare benefits – almost $600
a month in return for 12 hours of voluntary work – slashed.
His own time as a homeless heroin addict
ended after police caught him holding six socks filled with drugs for
Honduran dealers. His brother bailed him from jail on condition that he
went into rehab.
He was lucky. Last year there were 234
deaths from fentanyl and heroin in the city, more than double the
previous year and five times higher than in 2016.
Wolf believes that the decision by a state
ballot six years ago to reclassify thefts of property below the value of
$950 as misdemeanours has backfired badly, leading to a huge increase in
‘It is a disaster,’ he says. ‘The idea was
sound – to reduce jailing that is predominantly of minorities – but the
side effect was to embolden people to commit crime with impunity.
Everyone knows you can go into shops and steal up to $950.’
Even shampoo, deodorant and toothpaste are
now locked up in chemist shops to curb thefts.
The police declined to speak officially. But
one officer sitting in his car beside blatant street-dealing said there
was no point arresting people as they would simply be released, even if
they were carrying drugs and cash valued at several thousand dollars.
‘I find it very frustrating and lots of my
colleagues find it very frustrating,’ he says, adding that officers only
intervene when there is violence. ‘We get the blame because people think
we’re doing nothing. But it’s not our fault.’
Wes Tyler, manager of a family-owned hotel,
told me a man high on crystal meth smashed a $5,000 window one Sunday
afternoon – then repeatedly ignored court dates and probation orders
despite being seen in the neighbourhood last week.
‘If City Hall does not start to take these
issues more seriously, we’ll see businesses impacted,’ says Jay Cheng,
spokesman for the local Chamber of Commerce.

Venezuela’s former leader Hugo Chavez, a Fidel Castro acolyte,
campaigned on moving away from prosecuting ‘quality of life’ offences to
focus on serious and corporate offences.
The San Francisco Police Officers
Association spent heavily campaigning against Boudin, saying he was the
choice for ‘criminals and gang members’.
But Jennifer Friedenbach, executive director
of the charity Coalition on Homelessness, argues city residents should
get angry over ‘systemic neglect’ that sparked this crisis rather than
blaming people on the streets.
‘No one wants to live like this,’ she says.
‘We’ve tried locking people up before but that didn’t work.’
Friedenbach insists that the problems stem
from a lack of affordable housing, a significant reduction of emergency
shelters and the slashing of spending on treatment programmes.
She says, rightly, that issues of
homelessness, mental health and addiction are often linked.

San Francisco has more drug addicts than it has students enrolled in its
public high schools, the city Health Department’s latest estimates
There are about 24,500 injection drug users in San Francisco — that’s
about 8,500 more people than the nearly 16,000 students enrolled in San
Francisco Unified School District’s 15 high schools and illustrates the
scope of the problem on the city’s streets.
It’s also an increase of about 2,000 serious drug users since 2012, the
last time a study was done.
“There is an opioid epidemic in this country, and San Francisco is no
exception,” Deputy Director of Health Dr. Naveena Bobba said.
The problem is particularly visible in the Tenderloin, where police
reported more than 600 arrests for drug dealing last year. And where 27
suspects were booked into County Jail for dealing drugs in the first 20
days of the new year.
The out-in-the-open use of drugs on city sidewalks and at the Civic
Center BART Station was a huge embarrassment for the city and triggered
more police patrols and crackdowns in the past year. The BART station
has been cleaned up, but the problem continues in the Tenderloin.

illegal drugs — the city’s public health officials work the problem as a

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA VENTURE CAPITALISTS PROVE THEIR CORRUPTION
The founder of a Silicon Valley venture capital firm was sentenced
Wednesday to six months behind bars for paying about $450,000 in bribes to
boost his two daughters' entrance exam scores and get one of them into
Georgetown University as a bogus tennis recruit.
Manuel Henriquez, the 57-year-old founder and ex-CEO of Hercules Capital
based in Palo Alto, California, cried and dabbed his eyes with a tissue as
he prayed for forgiveness from his children and other families he hurt,
and asked the judge for mercy.
“There is no perfect way to express how broken I feel in my heart and
soul,” said Henriquez, who sat next to his lawyer and wore a face mask for
much of the hearing held via video conference because of the coronavirus
His wife, Elizabeth Henriquez, was sentenced in March to seven months
behind bars. She is currently locked up at a prison in California and is
expected to be released in January, according to online records.
Prosecutors had asked for five months for Manuel Henriquez, calling him
in court documents a “less active participant in the mechanics of the
fraud than his wife.” The defense urged the judge for three months or
U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton called Henriquez a hypocrite who
donated money to aid children, while at the same time using his wealth and
privilege to put his kids ahead of other less fortunate students in the
college admissions process.
“It’s a sad day,” the judge said.
A high-school senior had deftly promoted her “brand” for the Ivy League,
a college consultant boasted. In a2013 promotional video, William Rick
Singer, the mastermind of an elaborate admissions corruption scheme,
showered praises on the young woman.
She’d started her own organization to fight climate change, he said.
She’d eventually enroll in Brown. That student, it turns out, was Mary
Doerr, a daughter of John Doerr, the Silicon Valley venture capitalist and
early backer of Google and Amazon.
The Doerrs were clients of Singer years before he turned a legitimate
college consulting practice into an elaborate bribery-for-admissions
scheme that has shaken American academia, the parents who sought Singer’s
advice and the Wall Street and Silicon Valley firms that are now dealing
with the fallout.
Pro golfer Phil Mickelson and National Football League Hall of Fame
quarterback Joe Montana each tweeted last week that their families had
used Singer for college consulting and were “shocked” to hear about the
So are some of the Wall Street and Silicon Valley companies who had
connections to Singer, including Goldman Sachs Group Inc., bond-giant
PIMCO and venture-capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers,
which Doerr co-founded and is chairman.
Court papers suggest as many as 800 families hired Singer at some point.
Singer ran an apparently legitimate college counseling firm, the Edge
College & Career Network, before about 2011. The 2013 promotional
video that referred to Mary Doerr says she was a client “six years ago,”
or about 2007. The bribery case reaches back only to 2011.
The Doerr family has not been accused of any wrongdoing. Mary Doerr
graduated from Brown University in 2015 and now is a graduate student at
North Carolina State University, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Calls to Mary Doerr and her mother, Anne, were not returned. A Kleiner
Perkins spokeswoman, Katie Hutchison, didn’t respond to a request to speak
with John Doerr.
Hutchison declined to answer questions but said in a written statement
that while Doerr and partner Tom Schlein, “along with a long list of
Valley luminaries,” were clients of Singer, they consulted him only for
“test tutoring and help with college applications — typical of services
provided by thousands of private college counselors across the country —
and nothing further.”
Goldman Sachs, which was mentioned in a wiretapped phone conversation as
a social connection for at least one of the parents charged in Singer’s
bribery-for-admissions scheme, says it has begun an internal investigation
into any connection its employees may have to the former college
Firms whose partners and employees were caught up in the federal case
known as “Operation Varsity Blues” have swiftly moved to fire or accept
the resignations of people involved.
Bond-giant PIMCO said in a statement on Monday that “as part of a regular
series that includes dozens of outside speakers, PIMCO invited Mr. Singer
to speak twice over the past decade, the latest in 2015, about the college
admissions process.” But the firm added that it “has never had a business
relationship with Rick Singer or his college preparation organization.
Neither PIMCO nor the PIMCO Foundation has ever paid Mr. Singer or donated
money to his foundation.”
The statement added that any employees who engaged with Singer’s illegal
scheme “would have no place at the firm.”
PIMCO’s former chief executive Douglas Hodge, who retired in 2017, is
accused of paying about $500,000 in bribes for two daughters and a son to
be admitted to Georgetown University and and the University of Southern
California as fake tennis, soccer and football recruits.
The case has also sent shivers among affluent parents who fear they and
their children will be tarnished as the Singer case unfolds.
Families now in the admissions process “want to illustrate that they’re a
good family that wouldn’t cheat and that their kids would never want them
to cheat the process,” said Christine Pluta, a private counselor with
Edvice Princeton who has also worked in the admissions offices of the
University of Pennsylvania and Barnard College. “I have never before heard
a family try to convince me of their own integrity. Singer is part of the
Pluta said when she worked at Penn about 20 years ago, a “father offered
me a million dollars if his daughter would be admitted. At first I thought
he was joking.” She said she made it clear the offer was inappropriate.
Singer cooperated with authorities and pleaded guilty to facilitating
more than $25 million in bribes for faked ACT and SAT scores and bogus
athletic profiles to schools including the USC,Georgetown andYale
University. Parents contributed to Singer’s fake charity, Key Worldwide
Foundation, to facilitate bribes to coaches and school officials and some
and some took the charitable-donation deduction.
The wealthy parents worked in finance, sports and entertainment and
included actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman as well as Hodge,
who was replaced as CEO of PIMCO in 2016; Gordon Caplan, the co-chairman
of global law firm Wilkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, and William McGlashan
Jr., a former partner of private equity firmTPG, who was fired last week.
The relationships in those worlds led to some embarrassing revelations
for firms who invited Singer to speak.
“We know people at Goldman Sachs who have, you know, recommended you
highly,” said parent Marci Palatella, according to transcripts of a
wiretapped conversation with Singer.
Palatella, chief executive officer of a liquor distribution company in
Burlingame, Calif., and the wife of formerSan Francisco 49ers player Lou
Palatella, was charged with paying $575,000 in bribes to get their son
into USC as a fake “long snapper” football recruit.
Goldman Sachs spokesman Patrick Scanlan said Monday that “we’re
continuing to look into the matter.”
Another parent charged in the scandal referenced Kleiner Perkins. In a
wiretapped conversation, parent Bruce Isackson worried that the Internal
Revenue Service might discover the bogus charity, to which Isackson is
accused of paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to get his
daughter into USC as a fake-recruited rower.
Isackson, who was president of real-estate development firm WP
Investments in Woodside, Calif., was charged along with his wife, Davina.
He no longer appears on the website of the firm, which didn’t respond to
“Is this gonna be this — be the front page story with everyone from
Kleiner Perkins do whatever, getting these kids into school,” Isackson
said according to the transcript.
In the 2013 promotional video, Singer spoke of an unnamed client who had
started Inconvenient Youth while in high school. “She got totally engaged
in her brand, in her story, in her passion,” he said in the short video,
adding that “I had her six years ago as a student” and thanking former
Vice President Al Gore for allowing “us” to use his slide show from his
2006 documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” that inspired Doerr’s group.
Singer added that getting in to college “has to do with getting involved
in your brand.” He highlighted his role in Mary Doerr’s venture, saying
that “we wanted to create an organization that would focus on global
warming for youth.”
Mary Doerr started Inconvenient Youth in 2008 between her junior and
senior years atCastilleja School in Palo Alto, Calif.
John Doerr, whose net worth Forbes puts at $7.5 billion, has been
involved in education issues for some time. He is co-founder and lifetime
director of the NewS chools Venture Fund, which invests in start-ups aimed
at improving public education. He and Anne Doerr donated $50 million in
2015 to Rice University, his alma mater, to finance a leadership training
The couple paid about $50,000 bribes to have someone cheat multiple times
on standardized tests for their daughters, authorities said.
The Henriquezes were also charged with paying $400,000 to the sham
charity run by admissions consultant Rick Singer to get their oldest
daughter into Georgetown by falsely portraying her as a star tennis
player. Singer in turn paid then-Georgetown tennis coach Gordon Ernst in
exchange for labeling her as a recruit, authorities say.
Ernst, who's accused of getting nearly $3 million in bribes, has pleaded
Singer has pleaded guilty to running the sprawling bribery scheme and
helped investigators build the case against the parents.
Henriquez's lawyers said in court documents that his participation in the
scheme was “minor and largely passive” as he was busy running his company
while his wife “devoted herself to the care and well-being of their
"Mr. Henriquez knew some but not all of the details of the scheme with
Singer, played a small role, and to his great regret and shame, did not
stop it. He paid Singer’s bills, as he did all the family’s bills," his
lawyers said in a court filing.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen said it “strains credulity" that
Henriquez would believe that the $400,000 payment to Singer's sham charity
would support "underfunded college athletic programs (including Georgetown
tennis) and programs for disadvantaged youth," as his attorneys claimed in
Rosen accused Henriquez of refusing to fully accept responsibility for
his actions and attempting to present a "sanitized version of the conduct
to the court."
The Henriquezes are among nearly 30 parents who've admitted to charges in
the massive case called “Operation Varsity Blues.”
“Full House” star Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo
Giannulli, are scheduled to be sentenced in August after pleading guilty
to paying half a million dollars to get their two daughters into the

deal calls for her to serve two months behind bars and Giannulli's calls
for him to serve five months.

A Trophy Wife is a surgically enhanced woman who dresses like a Playboy
model, wears porno makeup and has a Jessica Rabbit type of cartoonish
facial structure. She is acquired by the tech executive to show off to
other tech executives. An unusually large number of San Francisco tech
executives are homosexual but they still have Trophy wives to keep up
At one of these events a young, attractive woman will approach a
recently divorced tech executive and advise him that she understands
“the Deal”. She uses code words and alluded to references but the intent
is clear. She is willing to be either a trophy wife or a prostitute
because the guy has the cash and she wants the rich lifestyle. A trophy
wife is aware that she must accept the fact that the man is rich and can
get any woman and there is a 3000 to 1 ratio of hot girls to rich men.
If she wants the cash she must accept the non-monogamous
sex-with-other-women culture of the tech males.
The Trophy Wives get to live in the big houses with the tech guys and
the prostitutes live in apartments in Marin County and Palo Alto. Many
of the prostitutes are from overseas and are known as “Instagram Girls”
because the advertise on Instagram and Match.com as “models”. Hundreds
of these internet hookers are flown into San Francisco, Oakland and San
Jose international airports, daily, on the credit cards of these tech
executives. The pot is well stocked. San Francisco tech executives
account for as much bay area sex trafficking, in dollar volume, as the
San Francisco Chinatown gangs. A San Francisco tech prostitute goes for
$1000.00 to $10000.00 per night while a Chinatown sex worker is only
$300.00 per session.
There are over 200 “Personal Services” providers for tech executives who
pitch “managing engagement schedules” for CEO’s. They are pimps who have
networked lists of hookers. They are usually women in the PR business
who once were trophy wives, or prostitutes, themselves when they were
younger. Most tech executives will eventually receive an offer from a
“Social Events Manager”, looking to hook them up.
Trophy Wives and prostitute offerings can be found jogging on San
Francisco’s Marina Green, sitting overtly in outdoor cafe’s on Chestnut
Street and Union Street in the Marina district and at every “tech
event”. They dress in fluorescent Spandex with bare midriff tops and
painted on Spandex leggings shoved as far up their butt-crack as biology
will allow. The regulars, though, are at the elite events and
The websites BACKPAGE.COM, SEEKING ARRANGEMENTS.COM and MATCH.COM are
the source favored by the tech guys for girls-on-demand hookers. Google
is in a huge battle against the government because Google does not want
BACKPAGE.COM shut down. It is the top source for hookers for the men of
The parties at the French, British and Russian embassies are notoriously
full of high-class hookers and wannabe trophy wife candidates. The key
to confirming them, in person, or on Match.com, is the use of code words
like “generous gentlemen”, “appreciates a special women”, “knows how to
take care of..” , “diamonds..” and other subliminal references.
The game can go south, though. Google’s, Tesla Investments and other top
executives have been killed by their hookers. Over 100 top tech execs
are now in the news for their over-the-top sex scandals. A Trophy Wife
or a Hooker can blackmail the tech executives at any moment;
non-disclosure agreements be damned. Hundreds of babies are now being
paid for by hundreds of tech executives along with hush-money to keep
the names of those babies fathers quiet.
Yes, San Francisco truly is the modern version of Sodom and Gomorrah.

San Francisco is a city of contrasts. It boasts glorious views of the
Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean, and it also offers the stench and disgusting sight of piles of human feces
on its sidewalks. It is a place filled with great wealth and striking
poverty, with tech billionaires and Silicon Valley companies existing
alongside an aggressive panhandling homeless population. While a city full

outside of California know or care who Willie Brown is. But that
may be about to change.
Brown spent around a quarter of a century as de facto royalty in
California, first serving more than three decades as a member of
the California Assembly (15 years as its speaker), and then eight
years as mayor of San Francisco.
He also once carried out an open extramarital affair with a young
prosecutor named Kamala Harris, currently a U.S. senator and
leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Now, we're far beyond the point that a personal past like that
disqualifies a candidate. Harris, after all, is vying to challenge
a thrice-married man who once graced the cover of Playboy and
publicized his infidelity on the cover of the New York Post.
Candidates' personal lives no longer warrant deep investigation,
unless they tell us something about their professional and
Unfortunately for Harris, the Willie Brown story is not strictly
personal. It's also professional.
When Harris was barely 30, she began dating Brown, then in his
60s and speaker of the California Assembly. To be clear, an
ambitious woman dating a powerful man is not alone any cause for
concern. Strong women are attracted to success, and a 30-year-old
assistant district attorney is hardly, say, a 21-year-old intern.
But the story doesn't end there.
For one thing, Brown was married at the time. He
wound up dumping Harris and returning to his wife as he became
mayor. (Again, in the era of President Trump, few will clutch
their pearls over this.)
More questionable than the romance is the relationship's apparent
effect on her finances and her career. Brown, according to
contemporary news accounts, gifted his then-girlfriend two
government jobs with ample salaries — while she was just getting
her start as an assistant DA.
Aside from handing her an
expensive BMW, Brown appointed her to two patronage positions
in state government that paid handsomely — more than $400,000
over five years. In 1994, she took a six-month leave of
absence from her Alameda County job to join the Unemployment
Insurance Appeals Board. Brown then appointed her to the
California Medical Assistance Commission, where she served
until 1998, attending two meetings a month for a $99,000
(That's more than $150,000 in current dollars.)
Even after they broke up, Brown, a San Francisco kingmaker,
continued to support Harris' career, boosting her district
attorney run and years later calling on Antonio
Villaraigosa to stay out of the Senate race, thus clearing the
field for Harris.
Just two years into her tenure as senator, Harris now wants to
reach the White House.
The facts are messy, but most in California politics are. If she
earned few hundred thousand dollars in taxpayer-funded patronage
thanks to a personal relationship, that undermines some of her
good-government cred. Or at least it requires her to explain how
Barack Obama wisely fessed up about his drug usage long before he
was a presidential candidate, and he alluded to his personal
growth and past mistakes enough that it created a satisfying
narrative, one that couldn't be used against him. Donald Trump was
a womanizer and a brash braggart, but that was his entire brand
for more than two decades. The first real instance where his past
came to haunt him was when he seemed to confess to sexual battery
on the now-infamous Access Hollywood tape. The allegations of
consensual affairs never really mattered.
Harris doesn't talk about Brown. She says that it's not relevant.
But part of her prosecutorial persona is a posture of toughness on
corruption. But the Willie Brown story, with those big paychecks,
gives off at least a whiff of cronyism. She's got to address the
charge she was profiting personally off connections to power
— at least if she wants us to believe she actually stands for the people.

When Michal got married in August 2015, her family and longtime
friends didn’t attend. The woman who walked her down the aisle,
the dozens of beaming onlookers, her soon-to-be husband—all were
people she’d met in the preceding 10 months. Wearing a loose,
casual dress borrowed from one of her new friends, Michal spent
the ceremony in a daze.
She knew she didn’t want to get married like this, in the living
room of a rented San Francisco house without her family’s
support, yet she felt compelled to do it. That uneasy feeling
could apply to most of her experiences in OneTaste.
OneTaste is a sexuality-focused wellness education company based
in the Bay Area. It’s best known for classes on “orgasmic
meditation,” a trademarked procedure that typically involves a
man using a gloved, lubricated fingertip to stroke a woman’s
clitoris for 15 minutes. For Michal, like those at her wedding,
OneTaste was much more than a series of workshops. It was a
company that had, in less than a year, gained sway over every
aspect of her life.

“San Francisco,” back in 1967. It was sung during the heyday of sex,

Viet Nam War and the oppression of The Man.

this is not a new problem. The famous chronicler of the city, San

phrase in his daily screeds during the 1980s and 1990s, but it's far
worse now. As the Daily Caller had the new mayornoting:
“There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up
here.” And not just poop. Added to the mix is a “dangerous mix of
drug needles, garbage, and feces.”

gentle people there.” Now you will meet a garbage dump mixed with a

the city could give each homeless resident just over $37,000 per
year, a figure well above the minimum wage in most other places, and

“homeless services,” there would likely be more than $100,000
