Old Navy To Shutter Downtown San Francisco Store Amid Retail Exodus

Zero Hedge | May 29, 2023

Add the Old Navy store in downtown San Francisco to the ever-expanding list of retail stores closing up shop this year. So far, Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off 5th, Anthropologie, Coco Republic, Whole FoodsT-Mobile, and a slew of other retail shops have shuttered operations in the crime-ridden progressive-run city because officials are failing to enforce law and order, which has led to a massive surge in thefts.

According to NBC Bay Area, Old Navy’s parent company Gap Inc. wrote in a statement that its store, located at 801 Market Street, will close its doors on July 1. The company is attempting to find a new location in the downtown district that “will better serve the needs of the business and our customers.” 

In other words, the company is relocating from the Market Street location because of out-of-control crime. The other retailers we noted above have specifically mentioned crime as the leading driver in shuttering downtown operations.


A Look at the Nonsensical Claim That Hijackers with Box Cutters Commandeered 4 Planes on 9/11

At Reddit, I once managed to get into a discussion with one of the wags on that site regarding a question someone posed on 9/11.

A wag asked, “What’s so sophisticated about hijacking a plane?”

No point in letting the real answer go to waste.

In answering such a question, it’s important not to let these types lead you down strawman-fallacy paths. My response is concise.

Initially, it was based on a statement to me from my cousin, who was a 20-year domestic-airline pilot. He said this to me shortly after 9/11: “No American pilots would turn over an aircraft to hijackers wielding box cutters, as claimed on 9/11.”

That seems logical. But in today’s world, we need to tighten up our case. I proceeded to look further into it.

The wag responded with a whole list of global hijackings dating back a century to prove it was not a big deal. However, a perusal of the list revealed only three U.S. hijacking attempts between 1983 and 2001. Two were thwarted by the crew and one crashed.

From Wikipedia: The so-called “Golden Age” of skyjacking in the United States ran from 1968 through 1979, with attacks tapering off after new regulations made boarding aircraft with weapons extremely difficult.

Jan. 11, 1987: A Continental Airlines DC-9 was hijacked in flight by Norwood Emanuel. Captain Mark Meyer was credited with thwarting the hijacking by quickly landing at Dulles International outside of Washington, D.C.

San Luis Obispo in 1987, when a disgruntled PSA employee shot the pilot of PSA flight 1771 to death, resulting in the crash of the plane and the death of everyone aboard.

April 7, 1994: FedEx Flight 705 experienced an attempted hijack by disgruntled employee Auburn Calloway as it left Memphis, Tennessee.

So four successful hijackings on 9/11 would have been one of the most extreme outliers and cowinkydinks in all of time.

Not only were hijacking attempts in U.S. skies very rare in the 18 years leading up to 9/11, but in the United States no hijacker actually succeeded in taking over and flying the aircraft during that period. And that doesn’t even broach the serious doubts about the beginner flying skills of the alleged 9/11 cocaine sniffing perps.

I could find no hijackings — even during the “Golden Age” of 1968 to 1979 — that succeeded, where the perp carried a knife, let alone a box cutter. And it happened four times on 9/11. 

Commercial pilots are trained to squawk a universal hijack code (7500), if they are subject to an attempted hijacking, thereby notifying FAA controllers on the ground. The fact is that not one of the eight pilots (four pilots and four co-pilots) on the four hijacked planes performed this action.

“To communicate to air traffic control that an aircraft is being hijacked, a pilot under duress should squawk 7500 or vocally, by radio communication, transmit ‘(aircraft call sign) transponder seven five zero zero.’”

So the storytelling goes something like this: First, the hijackers were able to overcome stewardesses on four separate flights and obtain a key to the cockpit door. This was somehow accomplished without commotion in the midst of passengers.

Then the hijackers were able to unlock the doors and enter the cockpit in stealthy manner that “surprised” the crew sufficiently to beat all eight crew members on four separate flights to the squawk module in their own cockpits.

This, plus overcoming the crews, was all done with a cartoon world hijacking weapon shown here. I know for a fact from my conversation with my cousin that many — if not most — airline pilots during this period were former military, including him. And this was much more during the men-were-men era, not the pussies era.

First Target, now Kohl's: LGBT “pride” clothing for babies being pushed at many perverted American retailers

(Natural News) The next American company to go the way of Bud Light (Anheuser-Busch) and Target is Kohl’s, which was recently caught pushing LGBT onesies for babies and other “pride”-themed children’s wear at its stores.

A YouTuber called “Twisted Luck Truth” captured video footage of a Kohl’s display featuring LGBT clothing from a company called “Sonoma Community” aimed at kids. One of the items shown is a “Pride Bodysuit Set” for children just 12 months old.

There is also a Mickey Mouse shirt for children with pride “rainbow” colors and the words “BELONG, BELIEVE, BE PROUD.”

“Kohl’s is pushing LGBTQ Pride for literal babies,” tweeted the “End Wokeness” Twitter account. “Looks like Kohl’s didn’t learn a thing from Bud Lite [sic] and Target.”

(Related: California Gov. Gavin Newsom is really mad that Target pulled Satanic LGBT clothing for children and babies from some of its stores; says CEO “sold out” the LGBTQ+ community by doing this.)

Parents: Don’t let corporate America groom your children into the Cult of LGBT

While the Kohl’s pride display does not appear to be at the front of the store like Target’s was, it is still a large standalone section designed to capture children’s eyes so they beg mama or papa to buy them the brightly colored items that in their innocent eyes might seem appealing – if only they knew the agenda behind it.

In fact, the reason why the pride “rainbow” was chosen at all, in addition to mocking God and his promise to never again flood the world – this next time He will destroy it by fire instead – was to appeal to young children by making it seem “fun” and “playful.”


There is nothing fun or playful about transgender mutilation, however, which seems to be priority number one for the Cult of LGBT in its pursuit of children. Their goal is to brainwash as many children as they can into embracing toxic sexuality in all of its many forms, most notably through “gender reassignment.”

Helping the cause are corporations like Target, Anheuser-Busch, and now Kohl’s, which aim to groom children into the cult while making profits along the way. Unfortunately for them, a growing number of Americans want nothing to do with such perversion.

“I think some of these companies are doing it just to go bankrupt!” one commenter aptly wrote, noticing that one by one, formerly great American brands are destroying their own image by pandering to the child groomers and mutilators.

“The CEOs of these companies must be short selling their own company’s stock,” wrote another about how, predictably, these companies’ stock prices all seem to plunge immediately after they pull off an LGBT stunt like this. “It’s a sure way to get rich.”

“Companies are pushing this more now to raise their ESG scores to get certain tax benefits and so the CEO can get his bonus for the year,” another person suggested. ESG, of course, refers to the left-wing climate change investing concept known as environmental, social, and governance.

“Kohl’s is a struggling retailer,” noted another about how this is the last thing Kohl’s would want to do if it plans to survive the retail vortex of everything being controlled and sold by the likes of Amazon.

“They’ve been changing things up and reorganizing as their sales are down and many locations are limping along. They really need to take a look at this and decide if the game of identity politics is their line of business, or if they are a mainstream seller of clothing, shoes and home goods. Because the people who make this country run are about done here.”

LGBT pride is all about leading more young souls straight to hell. To learn more, visit Transhumanism.news.

(Natural News) For Dr. Lee Merritt, the world is in a spiritual war – but it’s being waged on the physical plane. This, she said, was engineered by the globalist “Satan worshipers,” who do not worship the God of creation.

One of the things that this creepy religion believes in is that people would have to agree with their depopulation measures so they could easily get away with it, she told Pastor Leon Benjamin in the recent “B-Alert News” episode on Brighteon.TV. Merritt cited as an example the most massive genocide project – the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine mandate.

“They are never going to force-vaccinate people by tying them down and injecting them. You have to one way or another say okay. That somehow relieves them of their karmic debt,” said Merritt, who got “canceled” after criticizing the face mask mandate.

“When they told us that a virus spread all over China, killing people, they didn’t lie. What they didn’t tell us is that in Latin, virus means toxin or poison. It does not mean a little germ that comes out of your mouth and floats out and infects other people.”

She added that this was because they had a plan to implement “measures” to mitigate the virus by standing six feet apart from each other and wearing masks. “You see, that’s a great anti-human agenda. These are people that really want to destroy Earth and us with it.” (Related: Doctors Lee Merritt and Ben Tapper slam CDC over late admission that masks and PCR tests are USELESS – Brighteon.TV.)


The orthopedic and spinal surgeon also pointed out that the “extinction program” has been going on for a while, citing the poison that is being dumped on us via the chemtrails early on, poisoning the people from the sky to the food supply.

“We have so much evidence for this, like the Harvard University doctors that were paid to lie about what was causing heart attacks and that the sugar industry was realizing that it was carbohydrates that were associated with the increased incidence back in the 60s,” she said. “Every time a doctor would try to bring this up and write an article, these guys from Harvard would denigrate the paper. All it took was a few words for them and nobody ever looked at that stuff anymore.”

She further linked the depopulation agenda to how pathologists concealed the real reason for deaths at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The said medical professionals would not conduct autopsies as these could spread coronavirus, according to protocols.

“Finally, in June of 2021, there was a publication of over 360 cases of dead COVID-19 patients and the conclusion of these specialists – these people that are paid to know what caused you to die –was they “do not have an idea what was killing people,” Merritt disclosed. “That’s a pretty shocking admission.”

Merritt: The attack on humanity is not yet over

According to Benjamin, it is good that people are starting to wake up and come together to expose the people who have been lying about the “depopulation agenda” of the global elites. He said they are colluding with mainstream media, publications, state actors and politicians.

“I hate to say it. I ran for Congress in 2020 and 2022 because I was thinking of serving the people and getting in to solve problems. But these people don’t want to solve any problems. They just want to be in front of the camera to lie and then say, ‘Look, we just can’t figure out what’s going on,’” the pastor lamented.

Merritt concurred and encouraged the listeners to continue making a stand because the mandates are not over and they’re just counting coup, finding out how many how people they actually hurt with the vaccine and what’s going to be the death count as they plan their next move.

“And one of the ways they do it is they distract you with nonsense. It’s like the magician who waves his left hand while he’s picking your pocket with the right,” she added.

FOOD CRISIS BREWING: Robusta coffee bean prices hit 12-year record high amid El Nino threat

Image: FOOD CRISIS BREWING: Robusta coffee bean prices hit 12-year record high amid El Nino threat

(Natural News) A shortage brought about by the emerging El Nino ahead of a Northern Hemisphere summer in Vietnam and Indonesia has pushed Robusta coffee bean prices to a 12-year record high. Vietnam is the world’s largest producer of Robusta coffee beans while Indonesia is the world’s third-largest producer of this cheaper coffee variety.

While many coffee lovers prefer the high-quality arabica beans sold in cafes, Robusta is normally more budget-friendly because the tree is hardier and requires less care, making it easier to produce in large quantities. The said variety is often used in instant coffee, espressos and ground blends sold at supermarkets, which have experienced a comeback as cash-strapped consumers seek alternatives.

“An emerging El Nino weather pattern will curb output from top supplier Vietnam, bringing hotter, drier conditions later this year. Indonesia had its crops harmed by excessive rainfall, with the U.S. Department of Agriculture [USDA] forecasting an 18 percent decline in output for the new season that started in April,” Bloomberg reported.

Over the last year and a half, the cost-of-living squeeze has pushed more consumers to cheaper Robusta beans versus high-quality arabica beans. “There’s been so much of a demand shift away from higher-priced coffee that even the market isn’t even being satisfied by higher Robusta exports,” said Judith Ganes, who runs a commodities firm in New York.

According to Bar Chart, on May 25, Robusta coffee was under pressure after the USDA’s Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS) projected Vietnam’s 2023/24 coffee production would climb plus five percent to 31.3 million bags. The website added that a negative factor is the drier conditions in the coffee fields of Brazil, which is another key grower. Meteorologia reported earlier in the week that Brazil’s Minas Gerais region received no rain in the week that ended May 21. Minas Gerais accounts for about 30 percent of arabica crop in the Latin American nation.


Ready meals also hit by ongoing inflation in UK

Apart from coffee prices, ready meals are also going up in price in the U.K. during the past months, Yahoo Finance reported. According to the trade association British Retail Consortium (BRC), food prices at British supermarkets increased by 15.7 percent in the year to April, the biggest annual increase in records since 2005. (Related: Still no end in sight: Food inflation soars to highest level in 42 years.)

BRC Chief Executive Helen Dickinson said overall shop price inflation eased slightly in April due to heavy spring discounting in clothing, footwear and furniture. “However, food prices remained elevated given ongoing cost pressures throughout the supply chain,” she explained.

“The knock-on effect from increased production and packaging costs meant that ready meals became more expensive and coffee prices were also up due to the high cost of coffee beans, as well as key producer nations exporting less,” the BRC chief added.

As per Victoria Scholar, head of investment at the U.K. subscription-based online investment service Interactive Investor, there are incipient signs that price pressures are starting to cool while inflation remains elevated. The hope is that food prices will come down in the months ahead, although it is more likely that price growth will just slow instead in the near term as consumers continue to feel the squeeze from rising weekly food bills, she added.

“The unfortunate nature of the type of inflation the U.K. is facing is that it is affecting essential items such as food, hitting those at the lower end of the income spectrum most acutely, particularly with real wage growth stuck in negative territory,” Scholar further pointed out.
