  • L.A. County's homeless problem is worsening despite billions from tax measures

    02/19/2018 10:11:15 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 41 replies
    Los Angeles County's homeless population is increasing faster than the supply of new housing, even with the addition of thousands of beds in the last two years and millions of dollars beginning to flow in from two ballot measures targeting the crisis, according to a long-awaited report by the region's homelessness agency. The report showed that officials two years ago far underestimated how much new housing would be needed when they asked city and county voters to approve the tax measures. ... Peter Lynn, executive director of the homeless authority, said Friday that new cost figures had not been calculated,...

    Proposal aimed at keeping up with population growth would limit cities’ power over housing, handing more control to state. The mayor of Berkeley, California, has called it “a declaration of war”. A neighborhood group in Los Angeles said it would be akin to forcing Native Americans from their land. Amid a desperate housing crisis, legislators in the Golden State have prompted an outcry with new proposals that threaten to take the rulebook that governs American city planning and throw it out the window. Their proposition: reducing cities’ power to decide what gets built and putting more control into state hands....

    The polls point to the promised land. But she'll have to get past Trump and WikiLeaks first.___ The final three weeks should have been an anxious but happy time for a Hillary Clinton team on the cusp of making history. Her odds of victory, according to most prediction experts, sit north of 80 percent, and she has solidified modest but durable leads over Donald Trump in most battleground states. But Clinton's final sprint has become a joyless, nail-gnawing slog through Trump Tower’s moat of mudslinging — and the day-to-day worries of WikiLeaks’ dump of internal emails from campaign chairman John...
  • DNC Member: There's 'Less Funny Business' at the RNC

    The DNC Unity Commission is going about as well as last year's unity tour. Tom Perez took over as Democratic National Committee chair in February and hoped to bring the wings of the party together, hoping to prove that Hillary Clinton supporters and Bernie Sanders supporters can get along. Instead, he was met with boos and heckles by frustrated liberals who believe the DNC rigged the primary for Hillary. That theory got plenty of traction from Donna Brazile's bombshell of a book. Failing to hold a fair election is bad enough, but according to one outspoken Democrat at the DNC...

    In her new book What Happened, Hillary Clinton went after NBC’s Matt Lauer for his “Commander in Chief Forum” he held during the election. She explained about how upset she was that at a town hall interview that was supposed to focus on foreign policy, Lauer spent a substantial amount of time on her email scandal.

    Full title.........................Donna Brazile Claims Emails She ‘Allegedly’ Sent CNN Questions to Clinton Team Don’t Tell ‘Complete Story’.................Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile maintains that the Wikileaks emails showing her relaying CNN questions ahead of debates to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary do not "tell a complete story." In an interview with Politico published Monday, Brazile, a former CNN contributor, acknowledged the emails "allegedly" show her passing the information to the Clinton campaign. But she says the emails do not explain the full story. "You know, I think there's always a lot of confusion when something is put...

    Silly, silly Donna Brazile. She’s publishing a book detailing turmoil in the Democratic Party during the 2016 campaign, highlighted by her concern that Hillary Clinton was seriously ill and might need to be replaced by Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders. What’s the big deal? There’s no news here because all this was well-known and covered at the time by the big national newspapers and networks, right? Wrong. If Brazile were rehashing things we knew, there would be no book and no bombshell headlines now. Instead, she has thrown open a new and very big window on 2016 — and exposed...

    Clinton loyalists attack ex-DNC chair, who now says: 'I found no instances that the party rigged the process' Was the 2016 Democratic Party primary process between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders a “fair” fight? “I believe it was,” said former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile, who was suddenly singing a very different tune Tuesday in an interview with CBS. In her new book released Tuesday, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” Brazile had said exactly the opposite – indicating she doesn’t believe “the fight had been fair.”...

    In his opening monologue tonight, Sean Hannity said Hillary Clinton has been "caught red-handed" after rigging the 2016 Democratic presidential primary. He explained that former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile claims in her new book that she found proof that the Clinton campaign colluded with the DNC to rig the nomination process to ensure Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders.

    Current Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez joined Chuck Todd on Meet the Press today to discuss a wide variety of issues currently facing the DNC. Not surprisingly, much of the conversation centered around former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile's new book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House. In Hacks, Brazile alleges that the 2016 Democratic party primary was rigged via Clinton operatives within the DNC as well as a culture of corruption that slighted Bernie Sanders' primary efforts. Perez stressed his main focus as new DNC chair was...

    Complete Headline: Donna Brazile on FBI Re-Opening Clinton Email Investigation: It's 'Like an 18-Wheeler Smacking into Us' Top Democratic officials and advisers to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton are worried about the new attention being brought to the re-opening of the Clinton email investigation and worry about its impact on the election. Clinton's advisers fear that the attention devoted to the emails could affect her chances in the election as well as candidates in down-ballot House and Senate races. "This is like an 18-wheeler smacking into us, and it just becomes a huge distraction at the worst possible time," said...

    But there’s still one last line they won’t cross. One of the most mystifying aspects of the 2016 election has been the short-term elevation of Hillary Clinton. She somehow went from being the “most qualified presidential candidate in history” to a spiritual figure, a person with a mystical presence. She walks the woods. She grants or denies absolution. When she speaks, grown women weep. Or at least they did yesterday. Today, things changed. Remember Donna Brazile? She’s the former CNN contributor and interim chairman of the Democratic National Committee. She last dominated the headlines in October of 2016, when a...

We do not see this kind of thing happening in the Democrat Party, and it is happening, and we need to take note of it. Even our old buddy Byron York backed me up on this. I made the point on Friday that since the Clintons took office in 1992, other than the bimbo eruptions and stuff like that, which everybody knew, we’ve not had one act of disloyalty from anybody that has worked with the Clintons. A couple of FBI agents or Secret Service...

    “Hacks,” Donna Brazile’s memoir of the 2016 election, opens with a seemingly minor conflict: Months after the election, Brazile keeps checking her cellphone, waiting for her old friend Hillary Clinton to call. “On Election Day, the tradition in politics is that candidates personally thank the people who helped most in the campaign,” Brazile writes. “Win or lose, in the days that follow, the candidate extends that circle of gratitude to members of the party and the donors. Bernie Sanders called me on November 9, 2016, and Joe Biden, too. The vice president even came to our staff holiday party. But...

    Ms. Brazile, who is now basically the Fredo Corleone of the Clinton crime world, found herself on the CBS morning program on Tuesday, being interviewed by longtime fake news host Charlie Rose, the vapid Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, who vacations with the Obamas, for crying out loud. The fake hosts called her “bitter” and “angry” – words that if uttered towards a black woman by a conservative would have had these same fake journalists leveling charges of racism – and questioned Brazile’s honesty at several points in the interview. Not that there’s anything bad about questioning the honesty of...

  • "She Was In Full Meltdown”: Hillary Unleashed On Donna Brazile

    Hindsight is making more and more clear that Hillary’s outrageously rigged campaign is dependent – heavily dependent – on control over the media. Nearly every question she has been asked during the past 18 months has been approved and agreed upon ahead of time. Hillary’s responses have been heavily scripted and rehearsed. It even emerged that Donna Brazile, who is a CNN contributor and who was appointed interim chair of the DNC after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced out, shared questions that were meant to be spontaneous with the Clinton campaign in advance.
