    A California jewelry store owner’s nephew pulled a gun on suspects as the two men allegedly tried to rob his uncle’s store, according to reports. The suspects, caught on video, allegedly tried to stab owner Jean Boujekian during the attempted robbery at Vana Watch and Jewelry in South Pasadena on Friday, The Orange County Register reported. “I didn’t feel comfortable so I came out from the back to the floor and my nephew was in the background and one of them pulled out a knife,” Boujekian told KABC.

    (CBSLA/AP) — Thousands of teachers who may go on strike against the nation’s second-largest school district next month marched and rallied in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday. United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) union estimates 50,000 were there. The crowd had relief from overcrowding at the top of their wish list. **SNIP** UTLA teachers and supporters wore red for unity. They are seeing red over LAUSD’s reluctance to part with more green. “I want to see investment in the schools and in the kids,” said LAUSD parent Carmen Montecito. UTLA says if LAUSD would just tap in to its almost $2...

    DePaul University freshman David Krupa scored an impressive victory in Chicago politics on Saturday: Boss Madigan — the most powerful Democrat in Illinois — backed out of a challenge to Krupa’s candidacy for alderman in the Southwest Side’s 13th Ward. “I am truly humbled to be the first candidate on the ballot to challenge the 13th Ward since 1991,” Krupa, 19, told me at the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners offices. A few political guys mumbled privately that Madigan must be so angry that he might as well fill a burlap bag of the severed heads of a few of...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former Vice President Joe Biden holds the pole position in the first CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll among likely 2020 Democratic caucusgoers, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke joining him as the only possible candidates in the field with double-digit support. The new Iowa Poll finds 32% of likely caucusgoers saying they back Biden as their first choice, 19% Sanders, 11% O'Rourke, 8% Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, 5% California Sen. Kamala Harris, with the rest of the 20-person field testing below 5% support. The top three candidates in Iowa, including O'Rourke's third-place ranking, match...

    The Supreme Court held long ago in Brady v. Maryland that the Constitution requires the prosecution, which holds all the cards in a criminal case, to give the defense all evidence favorable to the defendant, whether it impeaches a witness, mitigates punishment or shows his innocence. Indeed, the burden is on prosecutors to find anything in the possession of the government that is favorable to the defense. From the minute Judge Emmet G. Sullivan received the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, which will be decided on Tuesday, he ordered Mueller to provide the defense with all Brady material Last...

    **SNIP** How big is the Climate Change Industrial Complex today? Surprisingly, no one seems to be keeping track of all the channels of funding. A few years ago Forbes magazine went through the federal budget and estimated about $150 billion in spending on climate change and green energy subsidies during President Obama’s first term. That didn’t include the tax subsidies that provide a 30 percent tax credit for wind and solar power —so add to those numbers about $8 billion to $10 billion a year. Then add billions more in costs attributable to the 29 states with renewable energy mandates...

    ... A large amount of domestic coverage this week involves the ongoing Mueller fiasco, in which it appears that the legal theories under which he is operating have been concocted by nitwits, and the processes he’s employed are nothing short of Beria-like (“show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime”) stuff. Space constraints allow me to discuss but a few of the matters in which politics posing as law enforcement captured this week’s news. Michael Flynn caught a break when his case was assigned to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who was monstrously played by a corrupt band of...

    In a little over a month, the so-called Green New Deal has won endorsements from more than three dozen sitting or incoming federal lawmakers as Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) makes a high-profile bid to shift debate over climate change toward policy on the scale of the crisis. On Friday, the effort got a boost from 311 state and local officials. Forty-four mayors, 63 county and state legislators and 116 city council members were among the officials from 40 states ― including some top oil and gas producers ― who signed an open letter issuing a sweeping, full-throated call for the...

    Some residents of small-town Sardis, Miss. say they are very troubled at officials’ decision to knowingly crown a registered sex offender as “Grand Marshal” of their annual Christmas parade, according to a report from KAIT. Carolyn Whaley, who owns The Eclectic Emporium on Main Street where the Christmas parade passed by on Tuesday, says “everyone in Sardis knows that Michael Saripkin, the Grand Marshal, is a sex offender,” KAIT reports. “Everybody knows that; it’s a small town,” Whaley said. “It doesn’t bother me. He’s a very nice, friendly man. He has donated more money, helped the fire department, helped the...

    Two juveniles, who could be as young as 10 years old, were part of a trio who followed a woman home and robbed her in her driveway, Menomonee Falls police said Thursday. Police released video and still images from the Dec. 8 incident that was captured on the woman's home security system. In the video provided to WISN 12 News, the woman pulled into her driveway, and seconds later, a red car passed. As the woman opened her SUV door, the red car circled around and stopped on the opposite side of Joper Road across from the woman's home. Two...

    Stoney Westmoreland was an actor on Disney Channel’s top-rated show when, police said, he hailed a ride-share car to a Salt Lake City trailer park late Thursday, allegedly hoping to have sex with someone he believed to be a minor. The 48-year old, who played a grandfather on the Disney Channel series “Andi Mack,” had used a dating app to meet a minor and sent explicit photos, authorities said. And then, a plan was set into motion. “He arranged to meet up with what he thought was a 13-year old,” Detective Greg Wilking, a spokesman for the Salt Lake City...

    Queens Assemblywoman Vivian Cook is a corrupt racist who tossed around the N-word, degraded a biracial employee and hired her own grandson for a low-show job, an explosive lawsuit charges. Ex-legislative aide Gail Palmer alleges that the ethically challenged and often-angry lawmaker would smash things on the floor while “frequently cursing at and excoriating” terrified staffers, who kept silent because they needed their jobs. The 80-year-old Democrat often called her half a dozen employees “motherf- -kers” and would make bizarre racial proclamations including, “I’m feeling colored today,” or “I’m feeling n- - -erish,” according to court papers.

    While it may seem hard to believe, there was a time when the citizens of Venezuela were allowed to keep and bear arms. This wasn’t the distant past we’re talking about either. It was only in 2012 that the socialist government of Hugo Chavez enacted the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law.” When it was passed, the authors of the legislation pulled no punches, saying that the explicit purpose of the law was to “disarm all citizens.” That bill was spectacularly successful, massively reducing the volume of privately owned firearms. Then, when the new tyrant, Nicolas Maduro took power...

In addition, none of the energy from the plant would go to the Spotsylvania community.

    A new CNN poll shows a majority of Americans are opposed to impeaching Donald Trump. In September, a plurality of 47 percent supported impeaching the president. Today, 50 percent say Trump shouldn't be removed from office. Americans break against that idea, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. Half, 50%, say they don't feel that Trump ought to be impeached and removed from office, while 43% say he should be. Support for impeachment has dipped some since September, when 47% favored it, and is about the same as in a June poll (42% favored it then). Support...

    It is always a bad idea to defy an order from a federal judge – especially when the judge whose order has been blown off has a history of vigilance against law enforcement and prosecutorial abuse and has thrown out convictions that resulted from abuse.  Yet the nation's premier, most powerful law enforcement agency has just done so. The Mueller Special Counsel Office's case against General Michael Flynn took a bizarre turn Friday when the FBI failed to provide Judge Emmet G. Sullivan with the original form 302 account of its interview with Flynn in the early days of the Trump administration.  General...

    The sentencing of General Michael Flynn could turn out to be the Waterloo of the Mueller Switch Project. The feds never could have convicted Flynn of perjury or lying to government officials–they don’t even have a transcript of what he said to the FBI! As a criminal case, it was always a non-starter. The Justice Department initially had no intention of prosecuting. But then, after Robert Mueller took over the case, Flynn was squeezed into a single guilty plea by the threat of personal bankruptcy. Mueller’s team is now saying that General Flynn needn’t go to prison–the equivalent of “oops,...
