Homelessness is a manufactured crisis

Politicians are making it much easier to be a homeless drug addict in the United States and much harder it is to be a law-abiding member of the middle class.

Tucker examines the cause and solutions to the homeless crisis in America. Highlights include:

“No matter what they tell you, homelessness is not an act of God. It’s not the result of economic collapse in this country, America did not run out of housing.”

“Instead, a determined group of well-funded ideologues decided to make it easier to live on the streets in this country while doing drugs.”

“Therefore, many more people now live on the streets while doing drugs.”

“Luxury apartments are just the beginning. Seattle’s most recent municipal budget allocates more than $150 million to other so-called homelessness programs, just this year. Now, keep in mind Seattle has fewer than 750,000 people living there, so that’s an awful lot of money per bum. It’s certainly a lot more than anyone else is getting in Seattle. At the same time it was giving overpriced condos to drug addicts. Seattle allocated just $10 million total for its small business stabilization fund, designed to keep family businesses from going bankrupt during the covid lockdowns.”

“You get what you pay for. When you pay for homelessness, you get a lot more of it.”

“In Los Angeles, politicians have spent billions ‘fighting homelessness.’ This has been accompanied, of course, by a massive increase in the number of people who are homeless. Four years ago, the city spent $440 million on what it called ‘solutions to homelessness.’ That was supposed to fix the problem. Did it? Homelessness in Los Angeles jumped 15% just last year.”

“As for the small businesses crushed by the city’s lunatic covid restrictions, you ask? Well, they get $62 million total.”

“Focusing our attention and money on people who contribute nothing, who only detract from the project that is this country, who don’t help their communities or anybody’s community, who hurt other people, who live solely for themselves, who are a danger to the rest of us … that’s insane.”

“Politicians are making it much easier to be a homeless drug addict in the United States and much harder it is to be a law-abiding member of the middle class.”

“What’s the effect? Well, let’s see. The middle class is dying and we now have record numbers of drug-addicted vagrants. What does that tell you? It tells you that incentives work. If you destroy the nuclear family, which they have, if you decriminalize drugs, which they have, if you hand out tents and needles to addicts, what do you think is going to happen? You’re gonna get more addicts living in tents.”

“The solution is as simple as the problem. Here’s the solution. Stop putting up with it. Say no. No, you can’t smoke meth in the park. You’re not allowed to crap on the sidewalk. Pull up your pants and get the hell out of here. Go somewhere with lower standards. Head for a place where politicians don’t care about their people, because we do care. This is our city, you’re not allowed to wreck it, you didn’t build it.”

“That’s not hard. That works. We know it work because that’s how societies functioned for about 2000 years.”

Tucker: There is something really wrong

The only way to stop these killings is to figure out why American society is producing so many violent young men

Published

Tucker looks at possible causes of the recent increase in violence in America and suggests getting to the root of the problem rather than continuing to ineffectively treat the symptoms.

“On May 14th, 18-year-old Peyton Gendron murdered ten shoppers in a grocery store in Buffalo, and then yesterday, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos killed 19 small children and two teachers in an elementary school in Texas.”

“Both Gendron and Ramos were very obviously mentally ill. The people around them new that. Both killers had told other people they planned to commit a mass shooting, and then they did. So, what can we learn from this? Well, the first, most obvious answer is that the system in place didn’t work. Gendron’s teacher sent him to a mental hospital for evaluation. They knew he was a threat. They tried their best, he committed a massacre anyway.”

“So, we know for a fact that what we’re doing isn’t working, but we should also be honest enough to acknowledge that it’s very hard to know what to do instead. The problem is that the human mind is much more complex and harder to control than we’d like to admit.”

“The only way to stop these killings is to figure out why American society is producing so many violent young men. There is a reason they’re acting this way. What is that reason? And it’s not just mass shooters, by the way, the ones you see on television. It’s gangbangers and carjackers and armed robbers and indiscriminate haters who push strangers in front of subway trains.”

“We have a lot of people like that in this country all of a sudden, more than you’d like to think about. Why are they acting this way? That’s the only question that matters. Of course, it’s the only question our leaders hate to address because there’s nothing in it for them.”

“This is bigger than a single mass shooting or even two of them in ten days. There has been a huge increase in violence in America, on our streets, on public transportation, in our schools. It’s not a guess, it’s measurable.”

“From January 1st to April 10th of this year, robberies in the New York transit system are up more than 70% year over year. Felony assaults in the subway have increased by 28%, grand larceny, according to the NYPD is up by more than 100%. Those are all crimes of violence, and that’s just underground. The same thing is happening on the streets.”

“It didn’t used to happen. It’s happening now — why? It’s not guns, it’s not the gun lobby. More Americans had guns at home than they do now, according to the Rand Corporation, which studied this. 45% of American homes had a gun in 1980. In 2016, that had dropped to 32%.”

“So, the problem is not that we’re more armed than we were. The problem is that people have changed. Young men have changed, they’re more violent. Why? That’s the bipartisan conversation we need to have now, and that conversation has been drowned out by lunatic attention-seekers who are hoping to win the next election. But we don’t need them now. Never mind your election. There’s something really wrong, and we can figure it out if we try. There are probably a lot of causes.”

“Well, is anyone studying what murderers, not just mass murderers but all murderers have in common? Instead of telling us about the gun lobby? Please, no one believes that. And why, by the way, is the answer to mass shootings always universal gun confiscation? Shouldn’t we be focused on the people who did it, on the dangerous people?”

“Let’s be serious about this. Children died. It’s real. Stop with the talking points, be honest.”

Tyrannical: The WHO’s New Global Pandemic Treaty

The Biden administration is very close to handing the World Health Organization power over every aspect of your life. Imagine the civil liberties abuses of the Covid lockdowns, but permanent.

Do You Think It’s Alright? This Real Good Lookin’ Boy is talkin’ ’bout The WHO, and I don’t mean the band. Here’s hoping the US Won’t Get Fooled Again. Highlights include:

The Biden administration is very close to handing the World Health Organization power over every aspect, the intimate aspects, of your life. So, imagine the civil liberties abuses that you lived through during the covid lockdowns, but permanent, and administered from a foreign country. Here’s what we’re looking at tonight. This January, the Biden administration submitted a series of proposed amendments to something called ‘the International Health Regulations.’

Now, the Biden administration’s amendments, along with those from several other countries, will be combined to create a ‘new global pandemic treaty.’

That treaty is set to be adopted starting this weekend in Geneva at the World Health Assembly. Now, the full text of the treaty is not yet finished, but a WHO working group has summarized what it’s going to look like. The document begins by promising to restrict the WHO’s authority to just pandemics — calm down, it’s just pandemics.”

“Here’s the catch. the World Health Organization gets to define what a pandemic is, when a pandemic is in progress, and how long a pandemic lasts. Then you read the fine print and you realize the WHO will have total authority over emergency operations in the United States if there is ever a ‘public health emergency.'”

“What qualifies exactly as a public health emergency? Well, they don’t define that, but they get to. They get to decide what a ‘public health emergency’ is, and then they have total authority.”

“You can see where this is going. Now the Biden administration has made certain that unelected bureaucrats at the WHO have total authority to declare and define public health emergencies. The White House eliminated a provision that would’ve required the World Health Organization to ‘consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the State Party in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring in.’”

“So, as originally written, they couldn’t do anything without the permission of their member countries’ governments, but thanks to the change that the Biden administration pushed, effectively there is no limit at all on WHO’s power.”

“And it gets worse from there. The treaty also mandates a ‘whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach to pandemic preparedness.’ Every society is always ‘preparing for a pandemic’ and that means there will not be a moment ever when the WHO doesn’t have operational control so-called ‘public health matters’ in this country. Now, what’s that going to mean, exactly?”

“Every member country in the WHO must ‘inform WHO about the establishment of its national competent authority responsible for the overall implementation of the IHR that will be recognized and held accountable.’ Under this treaty, WHO members must enforce orders from the WHO, they have to act as the heavies for the WHO, and if they don’t, they’ll be sanctioned.”
