Liberal and progressive city Seattle is literally becoming toxic. Rampant with crime and drugs, it has become impossible for the average citizen to ignore. The Seattle Times reported Monday that local authorities have stated its transit system has become “unusable.”

The Times reported the transit system has become overloaded with reports of toxic fentanyl, meth smoke and volatile behavior. It has created a toxic work environment for employees and has scared off travelers.

In an attempt to turn things around, the city plans to release a new “Safety, Security and Fare Enforcement Initiative” in February. The initiative incorporates surveys and comments from 8,000 people.

The Times reports that plan hopes to improve the dangerous environment, welcome back commuters, but also show compassion to those who are doing drugs, and especially homeless people, as “a necessary step on its journey to becoming an anti-racist mobility agency” according to the King County website.

Complaints of smoke from narcotics use such as meth and fentanyl surged last summer, surpassing complaints about individuals using needles and smoking marijuana. The unarmed security monitors for the metro have zero authority to arrest or remove individuals from public transportation.

The Metro Transit Authority (MTA) has also shied away from using law enforcement against the homeless population after the death of George Floyd, which led to nationwide protests, some of the most violent and destructive of which occurred in Seattle.

Seattle Police Detective Patrick Michaud told the Seattle Times that police officers in the city do not regularly patrol the transit system, and illegal drug use is considered a “lower priority than violent crime.”

Transit operator Erik Christensen has reported six incidents of fentanyl, meth or heroin smokers snice just October. “We just want them off the bus. Just get them off the bus, so we can drive” said Christensen.

In Denver, drug use at the downtown train station was deemed “a lawless hellhole” in December due to the amount of public drug use. The Seattle Times reports “a television newscast aired a worker’s video of defiant users. Police made arrests, and the transit agency closed restrooms after finding traces of fentanyl” in Denver’s Union Station.

    Democrats are ruining their own cities and states. People are leaving them in droves and moving to conservative areas where they know they will be safe. So why do people in these liberal enclaves continue to elect liberal leaders?

    Nothing new here. Seattle died long ago. Downtown is a cesspool no law abiding citizen dares to enter after dark and only by force during the day. This is the end stage of Liberalism.

    “a necessary step on its journey to becoming an anti-racist mobility agency”

    Here in a nutshell is why it will never change. Safety should be the primary goal. It’s not.

Sara Carter joined Fox News host Steve Hilton to discuss one aspect of the border crisis no one is talking about: what happens to the drug money?

The crisis continues to increase, so we have to ask ourselves, “what happens when the money goes back?” questions Carter of the money cartels make.

“According to the United States government, the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Mexican drug cartels are actually funneling that money back through Chinese banks” explains Carter.

“We are losing our children” says Carter, while “not only are the drug cartels taking advantage of our national security crisis, but the enemies of our country are taking advantage of the national security crisis at our border.”

“We are losing a generation of Americans” from the dangerous drugs crossing the border. “What is the Biden administration going to do about that?” begs Carter. Those questions need to be posed “directly to the administration.”
