[MAIL] Disturbing photos show homeless people in New York City's storied Garment District near Penn Station shooting up and dealing drugs in broad daylight as the crime in the area has spiked 41 percent since last year.
Homelessness in the area has been a years-long issue but has become more rampant in recent months, with people not even trying to hide their drug use.
Photos taken by DailyMail.com show one man with what appears to be drug paraphernalia in his hand, and another slumped over in a wheelchair.
Neighbors say police presence remains scarce, and outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio has been criticized for 'coddling addicts' and not working to get the drugs off the streets.
Crime in the Midtown South Precinct, which includes the Garment District, is up 41 percent this year through Sept. 19 compared to the same period in 2020, according to NYPD crime data.
The most eye-popping spikes are in the number of robberies - which increased 189 percent from 97 to 280 - and felony assaults - which increased 151 percent from 131 to 329.
The number of shooting victims jumped from one to 10 and hate crimes are up from three to 27.

Gonzales said he asked the chief of Border Patrol, Raul Ortiz, at a Homeland Security Committee hearing about its surge of agents to Del Rio. “Those agents are coming from somewhere," he said. "And my worry is other sectors are going to be weakened, thus creating a national security crisis, putting us at risk in other sectors, because everyone is focusing on Del Rio. ...
“Today, we're talking about Del Rio, but tomorrow, it'll be Laredo or Brownsville or Eagle Pass or El Paso. This problem is not going away.”
We are so used to letting the government lie obviously that even a whopper like this seems to just float on by. Mexican Army solider drove across the bridge on the border but "did not not know where they were". I have been to that bridge and find this loaf of codswallop insulted even for the stupid morons in our media. Even a room temperature IQ would know it, and I'm talking a really cold room in Minnesota...

[FoxNews] New York City officials were temporarily blocked from enforcing a similar vaccine mandate for its teachers and other school workers.
Gov. Kathy Hochul said Saturday she is prepared to call in medically trained National Guard members, retirees and workers outside New York to address potential staffing shortages created by an approaching vaccine mandate for health care workers.
If necessary, Hochul said, she will declare a state of emergency through an executive order designed to address staffing shortages in hospitals and nursing homes once the mandate takes effect Monday.
Many health care workers have still not received a required first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine days before the deadline, leaving the prospect of potentially thousands of health care workers being forced off the job next week.
The order would allow health care professionals who are licensed in other states or countries, are recent graduates or are formerly practicing health care professionals to practice in New York, Hochul said, noting she is exploring ways to expedite visa requests for medical professionals.
The governor said she also has the option of deploying National Guard members and partnering with the federal government to deploy Disaster Medical Assistance Teams.
"I am monitoring the staffing situation closely, and we have a plan to increase our health care workforce and help alleviate the burdens on our hospitals and other health care facilities," she said in a prepared release.
As the state made its preparations, New York City officials were temporarily blocked from enforcing a similar vaccine mandate for its teachers and other school workers. The city mandate was set to go into effect Monday, but a federal appeals judge granted a temporary injunction Friday and referred the case to a three-judge panel on an expedited basis.
Hospitals around the state have been preparing contingency plans that included cutting back on elective surgeries. Many nursing homes were limiting admissions.
"We’re roughly about 84% statewide vaccinated right now, so any initiatives that the governor could advance to increase the workforce is welcome and needed," said Stephen Hanse, who represents nursing homes statewide as president of the New York State Health Facilities Association and the New York State Center for Assisted Living.
Hochul, a Democrat, has resisted calls to delay the mandate, and her 11th-hour announcement could ratchet up pressure on vaccine holdouts. She said workers terminated because of refusal to be vaccinated are not eligible for unemployment insurance without a doctor-approved request for medical accommodation.
They better prepare. Done deal.People are walking now. National Guard members. yea right. So over worked, stressed out and all the blame, forget it. Anything to keep the fear going and Influenza B has just started.
[Patriot Alerts] Since Trump has left office, Tucker Carlson has become the new face of liberal rage. He triggers them unlike anyone else in the news media, and for good reason.
Carlson has the #1 rated cable news show in the country and millions are glued to the truth he gives on a nightly basis. And since the left hates truth, they have tried to attack Tucker at every angle.
During a new podcast, Megyn Kelly asked Tucker for his response to the ADL’s demands, and his answer was gold.
"Oh, f*** them," Carlson said. "The ADL was such a noble organization that had a very specific goal, which was to fight anti-Semitism. That’s a virtuous goal. I think they were pretty successful over the years. Now it’s operated by a guy who’s just an apparatchik of the Democratic Party."

[France24] Britain will issue up to 10,500 temporary work visas to lorry drivers and poultry workers to ease chronic staff shortages, the government announced Saturday, in a U-turn on post-Brexit immigration policy.
The short-term visas, to run from next month until late December, come as ministers grapple with a huge shortfall in drivers and some other key workers that has hit fuel supplies and additional industries.
A tanker drivers shortage has caused large queues at petrol stations in recent days, as people ignore government pleas not to panic-buy fuel after some garages closed due to the lack of deliveries.
The decision to expand the critical worker visa scheme is a reversal by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whose government had tightened post-Brexit immigration rules insisting that Britain's reliance on foreign labour must end.
God forbid you should, you know, raise the pay of the existing workers you've got to try to get things moving. You're in your cubbyhole, you must stay there.
Plus, bringing in truck drivers ... they drive on the other side of the road in UK. I can see a few problems occurring...

[Washington Examiner] No, you're not imagining things. That piece of steak really is pricier than usual — and so are your eggs, bacon, and other household staples.
Grocery bills have been steadily rising in the United States as the coronavirus pandemic has continued to wreak havoc on supply chains and as businesses have faced worker shortages in recent months. Those disruptions have been exacerbated by higher demand, droughts, and major storms that have decimated crops and halted food production in some areas.
And a personal point, not just higher prices, but lower portions and product sizes. Check the net weight/quantity on almost any staple over the past couple of years and you will see 3-5% decreases or more. Or my favorite, shortened best by dates!

#8 Yes, Look at Little Debbie how the portion sizes have been reduced. Then to have water expire.
Then China currently has a worker shortage as does Germany. Skills are lacking. I believe this is a concerted effort to drive AI. Replace humans. In all industry. Yes, healthcare, all manufacturing and service industries.

Couple of weeks ago same thing happened on the west coast. Two weeks no rail traffic. Local major hub (east coast) inactive. Now rail traffic booming. 20 new hires for local railroad with 10 more soon to be added. I guess they didn't coordinate well. Same people blamed, lazy humans. AI here we come. FED EX driver less vehicles being tested now. Look at all the vacation time. No more long work hours. No more work. Dumb down humanity.
Read a report last night that stated the administration was set to order the LA/Long Beach port to a 24 hour a day operation to unload the 60- something ships waiting. No mention of any ground-based increase in getting the boxes moved so chokepoint moves from the water to the land. Increased congestion will cause more delay due to multiple handling of containers. Also in the works will be a system of fines for truckers that fail to meet their gate times.

[BBC] On a moonlit night in March 1944, two agents floated down on parachutes into the Languedoc highlands east of Castres, in southern France.
One was Pierre Haymann, a Parisian Jew who had been trained in sabotage and partisan warfare in the UK. The other was Bernard Schlumberger, a Protestant from Alsace, who was to be the Free French army's envoy in the Toulouse region of south-west France.
Their brief was to unite the scattered local Resistance militias behind Free French leader Gen Charles de Gaulle, from a base in the tiny town of Vabre where they had been guaranteed protection by local partisans.
But before starting work, Pierre travelled 400km to the city of Lyon to find his girlfriend, Marion Muller, from whom he had been parted 15 months earlier.
It was a risky journey as the SS in that city knew him well. Marion and Pierre were both members of the Resistance, and in 1942 Pierre had been captured and taken to the notorious Hôtel Terminus, where SS commander Klaus Barbie - the "butcher of Lyon" - tortured his victims.
Pierre managed to escape, but then had no choice but to flee over the Pyrenees into Spain in midwinter.
When they were reunited in 1944, Marion dyed Pierre's hair red in an attempt to disguise him, but the paramilitary police soon tracked him down. There was a shootout, in which Pierre was injured, then the couple hurried to safety in Vabre.
[FoxNews] Former President Donald Trump praised a U.S. service member who was photographed pulling an Afghan baby across the Kabul airport wall during the Afghanistan withdrawal and brought him onstage at a rally Saturday.
"We’re also honored to be joined by one of the Marines who bravely served in Kabul during the withdrawal and helped evacuate children over the airport and over the airport wall," Trump told a crowd of thousands gathered in Perry, Georgia. "You saw him, he did a great job, Lance Corporal Hunter Ian Clark. Lance Corporal get up here!"
Lance Corporal Clark walked up to the stage accompanied by cheers, and Trump referred to him as a "handsome guy" during his approach.
"Hey, my name is Lance Corporal Hunter Clark, and I’m here from Warner Robbins, Georgia," Clark told the crowd. "I am the guy that pulled the baby over the wall, and it’s definitely probably one of the greatest things I’ve done in my entire life."
Clark appeared to be choked up, adding, "I just want to thank all the support from all y’all. It really means a lot and I’m glad to be home now."
Clark then shook the former president’s hand and walked off stage to chants of "USA! USA! USA!"
During his speech, Trump repeatedly slammed President Biden’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, calling it the "most appalling display of incompetence."
In the front row, Trump left 13 empty seats with roses placed atop them to pay tribute to the 13 U.S. service members who lost their lives during an ISIS-K suicide attack as the military was attempting to evacuate.
"In their memory tonight we have 13 empty seats of honor right here in the front row," Trump told the cheering crowd. "Our hearts go out to the families of every service member that we have lost, and I’ve spoken to a lot of them. These are great, great people."
[ZERO] While the media has spent more than a year ridiculing the widely-prescribed drug Ivermectin to treat Covid-19 - branding it a 'horse dewormer for idiots,' they've kept oddly silent about another widely prescribed drug that's also used in horses, which is being pushed by official bodies worldwide to treat the disease.
The NIH, CDC, WHO and FDA have all recommended dexamethasone - a corticosteroid which has shown efficacy in the treatment of severe covid. It's also a commonly used drug to treat allergies in horses.
The difference? One can be used to treat billions of mild-moderate cases - or as a prophylactic, while the other has a much more narrow use - those suffering from severe Covid.

Ummm no, I have several vials in my office and have for years for treating humans. Decadron/dexamethasone is just another moderate to high potency long acting steroid similar to methylprednisolone that is already widely used to treat COVID-19 and other inflammatory conditions. Truly nothing to see here.
#6 Thank you for that information. The battle goes on however "We are in the process of exhuming bodies in my county to prove it was a HOAX.....And we are getting push back....why? because they know WE ARE RIGHT!!". This will not end well. In my opinion we are looking at years. Perhaps permanently. As a poster here once said full page adds for legal class actions. Protected? Ha!, contracts, agreements are made to be broken.
This leak took place during the Obama administration. So we are now told that Trump's man, Pompeo, was so upset by it, that instead of investigating the source of the leak within the CIA, he was determined to punish the publisher of the leak.
It seems like the anti-US leakers in the CIA are still there and still leaking.
It seems to me that the leakers themselves would be the ones who wanted to eliminate Assange to avoid Pompeo making a deal with him that might expose them.
This at least would be consistent with the extreme anti-Trump behavior of a segment of the CIA, which undoubtedly included opposition to Pompeo.
And it is completely consistent with this present leak.

[ET] The "black swan" event of a solar superstorm directed at earth could prompt an "internet apocalypse" across the entire globe that could last for several months, new research (pdf) has warned.
University of California Irvine assistant professor Sangeetha Abdu Jyothi presented the new research, titled "Solar Superstorms: Planning for an Internet Apocalypse," last month during the Association for Computing Machinery’s annual conference for their Special Interest Group on Data Communication (SIGCOMM).
"One of the greatest dangers facing the internet with the potential for global impact is a powerful solar superstorm," Jyothi wrote in the new research paper.
"Although humans are protected from these storms by the earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere, they can cause significant damage to man-made infrastructure. The scientific community is generally aware of this threat with modeling efforts and precautionary measures being taken, particularly in the context of power grids. However, the networking community has largely overlooked this risk during the design of the network topology and geo-distributed systems such as DNS and data centers," he continued.
Our magnetic field is extremely weak at this time. Gaps the size of California could occur and has in the past. The overpowering solar bombardment 1859 Carrington event repeat perhaps. I wonder at what point our bio electric system could be neutralized by emp so to speak. Humanity survived that event. It was said batteries were not required as things would work without. I wonder, transformers would blow perhaps.
Haven't heard about the "hole in the ozone layer" since the 1990s. Does this mean that climate change is losing its cachet and we need to shift to another focus for panic--even a retread from 30 years ago?
Yes well, the problem they had is that when the ozone hole was found, the true cause of it was worked out in just a couple years....ie, Ozone is formed by the interaction of sunlight in the upper atmosphere. What do you not get much of at the poles......SUNLIGHT!. And since it was discovered in 1954 I think and by the 60's we knew the cause BEFORE the widespread used of CFC's, we knew that it was BS.
Maunder Minimum was a low sunspot era that lasted from about 1650 to 1710 or so.
It was during the Little ice age which lasted from about 1300 to 1850.
The best Maunder Minimum correlation though is ironically with the 1643 to 1715 reign of Louis XIV who was known as the le Roi Soleil ( Sun King)

the Little ice age which lasted from about 1300 to 1850.
This is why all those Global Climate Scaring graphs you see start around 1860 - we were coming out of a baby ice age. Even stats guy Nate Silver, in his otherwise excellent "The Signal and the Noise", falls into this trap.
You don't see the wild zigzag swings between Ice Age and Warm Period over the last few million years, just that steady rise since the Industrial Revolution. Damn those humans and their oxidized carbon!
