“The most singularly depressing town in the entire universe.”

A historic city laid waste by the left.

When I say this is a lifeless soulless place. You must imagine my new context to really understand it. Staying in a hotel with only one, perhaps a handful, of other guest(s) is a rather remarkable sense of living amid COVID-19 misery in real life.
Yes, it’s like a living example of The Shining, sans the death-knock of the twins in the middle of the night. That is correct. Trump International DC – and NO GUESTS. It’s a desolate, depressing, empty dystopian hotel nightmare hidden from all normal people in America including me. I had no idea the metastasized rot had already spread to the central nervous system. Eric needs to consider selling this place, and fast.
Restaurants closed. Everything closed. Lights out. DARK. Want to eat, go to the grocery store and hope for bologna and some bread. Everything on television/internet is disconnected from reality. I know, I’m here.

  1. From the headline I thought the article would be about Ottawa. Because I’ve said the very same thing about that hellscape, and long, long before the COVID nonsense.

    1. Go behind the desolate edifices … and as SD said … mounds upon mounds of maggots sucking on the dead carcasses of dead cockroaches. Sundance’s metaphor instantly brought to mind … Peter Strozk-maggot … James Comey-maggot … Nancy Pelosi? tough to tell with her … half cockroach exoskeleton… half maggot.

      So that’s what’s wrong. The streets are dead. The city is dead. But the maggots abound … sucking the remnant nutrients from the body politic. What? $30T in debt? What does that mean? Virtually ALL your taxes are going to pay the interest on the debt. More and more taxes … fewer and fewer government services. And the only way to keep pace? More and more multi-culti aliens to feed the maggots. Massive numbers (multiple millions) of immigrants of all description.

      1. “Rorschach’s Journal. October 12th, 1985: Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout “Save us!”… and I’ll whisper “no.” They had a choice, all of them. They could have followed in the footsteps of good men like my father or President Truman. Decent men who believed in a day’s work for a day’s pay. Instead they followed the droppings of lechers and communists and didn’t realize that the trail led over a precipice until it was too late. Don’t tell me they didn’t have a choice. Now the whole world stands on the brink, staring down into bloody Hell, all those liberals and intellectuals and smooth-talkers… and all of a sudden nobody can think of anything to say.”

      2. BUT, they’re going to have a (new) name for their football club! And in the meantime, it’ll be the Washington Football Club. (Wow!) To be more definitive in nomenclature and to differentiate from the Washington State team, might I suggest The Washington DCs. Two interpretive options might be, Washington DiCs or Washington D&C’s. Can’t wait for the Edmonton Eunuchs.

        Me thinks that SD is “in the valley of the shadow of death”
        los cojones of STEEL our SD has

  2. Many US cities fit into this “laid waste” catagory. Chicago’s beautiful skyline, parks and lakefront have been overshadowed by nearly NINE decades of Democrat Party rule. It’s decline has nothing to do with wuhan flu, it’s caused by political corruption (kickbacks, bribes and pay-to-play) forcing businessmen and factories out to be replaced by drug lords. The decline is entirely due to Democrat voters, including the dead ones.
    Anyone care to speculate about the end results of Obama/Holder’s Fast and Furious gun program and the dramatic increase in Chicago drive-by shootings?

  3. Oh poor baby!
    You should see the places I sleep when I need to get the job done.
    What a spoiled rotten clueless twit.
    Selfish dingbats like this need to get dropped off 100 miles in the bush, given a map and compass and a week’s worth of food and told to walk it out. Then, maybe, they will develop a sense of gratitude, compassion and empathy and maybe then their lives will become productive and meaningful to themselves and others.

  4. Fuggetaboutit…it’s D.C. The denizens of which vote Democrat time and time again like Pavlov’s dogs and not by a small margin I might add.
    Reminds me of an SNL skit about a rather dull fellow played by Billy Crystal who’s asked why he continually hits his head with a hammer. “Because it feels good when I stop”.
    He’s smart enough to stop, D.C. not so much.
    Let’em rot.

  5. I’m actually surprised Nenshit didn’t make it mandatory as soon as ya left your home…

    Until is See more than 1 Randomized Controlled study showing Cloth/Wool homemade masks have ANY efficacy at preventing Viral agents penetrating….this whole Circus of wearing a mask is nothing less than Liberal-Democrat “NAZI” Bullshit.

    Hey, ya wanna spend a lovely evening in a “hotel”….??
    Try the only one in Marathon, Ontario.

    Aptly name the ZERO 100…..the epitome of a Dump.

  6. At the end of this article, the author appears to blame Trump for DC’s demise. Although Trump did commit to “draining the swamp” (i.e., D.C.), he did not cause the problems in D.C. that the author describes.

    “For the first time in my life I’m not sure I want President Trump to win another term. Who in their right mind would wish this on anyone.”

    1. Ottawa MJ (re: Conservative Treehouse piece).

      My interpretation is that he is thinking that maybe it would be best for Trump not to win because the situation is hopeless; not that he is blaming Trump for that souless cesspool.

      Of late I’ve been toying with the notion (not sure how sincerely) that Trump should WIN … then immediately quit after making the speech of the century. Pence too. A win will be no victory!

      1. MND: Thanks for your perspective which makes more sense given the main point of the article.

  7. I think the major point is being missed here. Primarily, Washington DC has two main consumer bases. One is, of course, tourism. That is not the focus of the American people right now as they have just gotten back to work, and vacations are not a priority (and likely discouraged by new and re-fitted employers).

    The second consumer base is the one that has always been Washington DC’s stale bread and butter. Lobbying. Sure, there is still some lobbying going on, but is a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of what was considered normal. The fact that the “industry” is dead is a very good thing. It implies that foreign countries and domestic interest groups don’t see an opportunity. So, they aren’t sending their snake oil salesmen to Washington to latch onto their American piece of the pie (i.e. your tax dollars). Of course, Trump International is going to take a hit. Their demographic consumer base was the lobbyist traveling from abroad. It seems that other nations got the message. Stay home, there’s no free stuff for you here.

    You can add to that lessening number many other lobbyists who already got what they wanted (but in a positive way). One of the functions the Trump Administration has been doing under the radar is massive massive massive De-regulation. We’re talking thousands and thousands of pages of de-regulation. Many of these lobbyists would be there right now pushing for their industries to be de-regulated but for the fact they have already been de-regulated.

    So, me personally, I see a vacant empty National Capital as a positive sign. One that has been long overdue….and will only last as long as someone in the White House refuses to hand out free candy.

    1. Great point about the Lobbiest losses. Hadn’t thought about that one. But, if you will allow me to tweak your expressed goal of lobbiests in DC … Lobbiests don’t want de-regulation … they WANT regulation. They want regulations that destroy their competition. They want regulations that give them greater access to Federal $$$$

      1. Kenji:

        As a retired regulatee (securities) for nearly 40 years I can say that you are absolutely correct about lobbyists SEEKING regulation as self protection from competition. Like most things nowadays regulation is hardly ever about what it claims to be about, with the possible exception of hard core safety, e.g. aviation.

  8. Most of these Liberal cities appear to be now run by Black mayors filled with mostly Black, Latino, “gay” and feminist female city counsels and Police Chiefs.

    Simply put, they’re running out of excuses as these cities descend into dystopian nightmares.

    1. I’m going to tip toe around any suggestion of “racism” and say instead .., that identity politics, affirmative-action, gender equity, and social promotion are to blame for all the FAILED Mayors … and inept governance. It should be blatantly apparent that these kind of programs have guaranteed that the best and the brightest get passed over for the dull-witted sloganeers who know how to use sexual and racial blackmail to attain positions of power. But it isn’t really “leadership” … it’s ideological apartheid. It’s cultural revolution. Join the progressive movement that wants to teach your 8yo about the … Joy of Glory Holes … as a suitable COVID sex connection. Nevermind the messy fluids and membranes, at least you won’t be coughing on whomever is fiddling with your nasty bits. This is what passes for Big City “leadership” now … a cultural revolution that would make Chairman Mao blush.

  9. I’m no fan of the Chinadian federal government as its nothing but a money funnel…
    Seems like lefty mayors are rising up against their federal “oppressors”.
    Mayor Puta in DC might be on crack.
    Mayor Dickhead in Portland got gassed last night walking amongst rioters and essentially telling them they were invaded by the feds.
    Meanwhile the lefty mayors in Chinada get in line to slurp up Blackie’s pole gravy at every opportunity.

  10. And Washington’s mayor is a woman named Bowser.

    These days, the jokes just write themselves.

  11. “This is my first visit as a non-tourist.”

    SD in DC as a non-tourist –
    very interesting.

    1. Yes, and he just did an “authentication” post for someone he’s meeting with to prove whom he is. Ah, to be a fly on that wall. There are only a handful of individuals actually in a position to make a difference on the whole matter. For example, if he’s meeting Lindsey Graham (of whom I hold personal disdain for inaction)….there may, in fact, be cause for optimism. If you have been following that blog’s posts most recently you will have gotten the vibe that something has the author optimistic and excited. That is the total opposite of the usual vibe there.

  12. The Riots are happening in Cities with Corrupt & Incompetent leadership….The MOB target is the Police & selective Justice…..When will the people realize those friendly Governors & Mayors are the actual enemy… The USA has constitutional STATE rights (Yes the South lost, but States rights WON) Which allows STATE corruption to rule the roost…

    The Battle is not really Republican VS Democrat ( Party Label)… It is local corruption in Drugs & Street crime… The Cities are Democrat, but that is a deflection used to imply a Federal party responsibility…. The Local Government has ALL the Control including the Judicial process…..

    Luckily these City’s failure will be limited to the failure of that STATE….

  13. SD is an excellent collator and connector of political data.
    However like most of us he lives in delusional land. He thinks that revealing facts that are outstanding evidence to prosecute many of the corrupt elite Trump haters from the Institutions is useful.
    Not much use I’m afraid, the only body that can prosecute is the DoJ, they simply say “DoJ declines to prosecute” no matter the evidence and that’s the end of the matter.

    Maybe the only way any of these perps get seriously prosecuted is Sidney Powell as AG. Barr will always protect his lifelong peer group and their Institutions. Sorry.

  14. If you want any justice it will need to be given out through various Star Chambers then swiftly carried out by death squads.
    Such is the sad state of affairs in the Western World.
    I am beginning to appreciate General Pinochet’ s ( sp) way of doing things much more.
