The Total Breakdown in Most Local California Governments

Lack of leadership at local level leads to chaos, anarchy, violence, destruction

California is a mess, still in COVID-19 lockdown, with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s boot on the necks of the state’s business owners and employees.

Businesses have been closed for 6 months, with far too many never to re-open. As if that is not enough damage to the state’s economy, Democrat Mayors of blue cities – Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Oakland, and many others, have done nothing to prevent riots, protests, destruction of downtown businesses, vandalism, violence and injuries, all in the name of “racial justice” and the movement to “Defund the Police.”

All of this chaos and lack of leadership is leading to a total breakdown in California’s cities.

Leaders like Mayors, Chiefs of Police, County Supervisors, City Councils and schools superintendents have kowtowed to mobs, and abdicated their actual responsibilities.

“Optics” are now more important than governing.

‘You are talking drug-fueled parties, overdoses, deaths’

Thousands of homeless people have been housed in San Francisco’s empty hotels in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus.

However, City Journal contributor Erica Sandberg told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday the policy has been an “absolute disaster,”

“It’s solving exactly nothing and as a matter of fact, it’s making all the problems worse,” said Sandberg, who described the scene inside the hotels as “about as bad as you can imagine, only exponentially worse.”

Victor Davis Hanson on Corona, California, and the Classical World (Video)

Victor Davis Hanson is both a classical scholar at the Hoover Institution and a farmer in the San Joaquin Valley of California. He’s also a defender of the President, (his book The Case For Trump spent weeks on the best seller lists in 2019), and a close observer of the scientific and medical communities. These disparate interests and fields of study give him very unique perspectives and insights on the current COVID-19 crisis. We discuss the current situation with him in great detail, including the difficulties encountered by farmers, by research scientists and doctors, why some areas of the country are affected more than others, his theories about when the virus actually appeared in the U.S. and finally, what plagues of the ancient world can teach us about how to best manage and get past the situation the entire world finds itself in.

Study: California receives low ‘quality of life’ score

In this ranking, quality of life is defined by more than just the sunny skies.

Stop bragging about your beaches, mountains and culture, Californians. The latest study by U.S. News editors say all those amenities add up to nothing short of the worst “quality of life” in the United States.

The annual Best States ranking was part of a study that scored all 50 states across eight categories: health care, education, economy, opportunity, infrastructure, crime and corrections, fiscal stability, and quality of life.

More weight was given to scores in categories that, based on a survey, “mattered most to people.”

Due to that factor, health care and education were weighted the heaviest (16 percent), followed by state economies (14 percent), citizen opportunities (13 percent), and then infrastructure, crime and corrections, fiscal stability and quality of life. The data was derived from management consulting firm McKinsey & Company’s Leading States Index.

“This explains why Iowa, ranking No. 1 in infrastructure and No. 3 in health care, occupies the overall No. 1 spot in the Best States rankings,” as U.S. News writes. “And it explains why Minnesota, ranking No. 2 in quality of life and No. 3 in opportunity for its citizens, ranks No. 2 overall in the Best States rankings.”
