    The artwork from conservative artist Sabo consists of blood-spattered text reading, "Negan wants 50% of your sh*t. Hillary demands it all." The Walking Dead has been hijacked by a prolific street artist to protest Hillary Clinton and the presidential candidate's entire Democratic Party. The artwork from conservative artist Sabo consists of blood-spattered text reading, "Negan wants 50% of your sh*t. Hillary demands it all." The sentiments are based on Negan, a new villain on AMC's hit show who expressed his desire for stuff that doesn't belong to him.

    A century ago, if you’d uttered the word “artist,” chances are it would have been accompanied by the modifier “starving.” Consider the tubercular waifs of Puccini’s “La Bohème” burning manuscripts to stay warm in their Paris garrets. Or New York’s Abstract Expressionists drinking nickel coffee at Depression-era cafeterias.

    We’ve got to stop using veterans as political pawns Department of Veteran Affairs has for its mission statement: To fulfill President Lincoln´s promise: “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” by serving and honoring the men and women who are America´s Veterans. Naturally, funds are needed to serve the purpose, but how come it is that the VA goes on an art shopping spree while our Veterans’ life span is dramatically reduced by inhuman living conditions and lack of medical care? While the department worries about overpayments to ex-soldiers and...

    Authorities called the death of Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Owen a “calculated execution.” Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell described the death in detail. “Sgt. Owen approached the suspect in response to a burglary call,” McDonnell said as large photos of Owen were behind him. “The suspect immediately shot Sgt. Owen. He then stood over and executed Sgt. Owen by firing four additional rounds in his body.” Before the news conference began at 4 p.m., authorities identified the man accused of killing Owen as Trenton Trevon Lovell, of Lancaster. Owen was shot and killed Wednesday after he responded...

    Los Angeles County was once a red area. Ronald Reagan won LA in 1980—but it was a squeaker. 1984 was better. Of course, Reagan wiped the floor with Mondale across the country. The last time a Republican Governor won LA? Pete Wilson, 1994, running on a platform of stopping illegal immigration. The 2003 recall didn’t do much for GOP chances in Los Angeles. The majority voted “No!” to the recall, but wanted Schwarzenegger to be the next Governor. Now, Los Angeles County has turned into a cesspool of illegal immigration, the lynchpin for Democratic dominance (besides the Bay Area). Poverty...

    In left-wing Los Angeles, where defending oneself with a firearm is strictly frowned upon by the upper crust (after all, that’s what highly paid body guards are for) it has now been decided that police officers must run away like frightened children rather than challenge anyone brandishing a deadly weapon. In short, officers of the Los Angeles Police Department—Angelino’s first and last line of defense in the MAY issue, concealed carry license State of California—have been instructed to allow armed lunatics to go their merry way, attacking defenseless citizens, before confronting and threatening them with potential harm! Such was the...

    The Los Angeles Police Commission wants LAPD police officers to run away when a suspect confronts them with a weapon, warns the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the labor union of the city’s police officers. The organization posted a blog post critical of the commission’s recent decision to find that fault lay upon an LAPD officer who used deadly force when a female suspect, Norma Guzman, came at him and his partner swinging a large knife. “The key facts in this case are not in dispute. A female suspect, armed with an 8 to 9-inch knife, charged at officers, repeatedly...

While spending recent years largely in disrepair, the Sports Arena has a storied past: Vice President Richard M. Nixon delivered the dedication address for the Sports Arena on Memorial Day in 1958, and John F.

Two armed black men were seen about 12:45 a.m. dressed in military garb walking on Century Boulevard between Yukon Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard in Inglewood, according to police.

    Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca withdrew a guilty plea Monday and chose to go to trial on a charge of lying to federal authorities in an effort to thwart an FBI investigation into abuses at the jails he ran. The decision was made at a hearing after last-minute negotiations between defense attorneys and prosecutors on a new plea agreement. Baca, 74, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, had pleaded guilty to lying to federal authorities under a deal that called for no more than six months in prison. But a federal judge rejected that sentence last month as...

    When she discovered she was pregnant, the 22-year-old aspiring veterinarian started calling abortion clinics in her home state of Oklahoma. It was a short list – there are only two, and neither could get her an appointment quickly. Unemployed, no car, and still living with her parents, Pearl thought about trying Texas, but knew the state had also recently tightened restrictions on clinics. ...

    The latest stop on Milo Yiannopoulous’s “Dangerous Faggot Tour” at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) was blocked by protests at the beginning, and evacuated by a bomb threat at the end. Before the event started, groups of protesters gathered outside of the Broad Art Building, where Milo was to speak. A large banner was hung from the third story of a neighboring building, which read: “Bruins Against Hate.” Groups of women and men stood outside holding pro-feminism signs — with black duct tape over their mouths (above).

    With the California primary fast approaching, the media are rolling out their favorite fairy tale about how Republican Pete Wilson’s support for Proposition 187 in 1994 was a historic, game-changing error for the GOP, driving Hispanics from the party for good! Both CNN and MSNBC retold this completely bogus narrative this week. NPR rolls it out once every two weeks. I — along with other people capable of reading election returns — have written about this forever. I did most recently in “Adios, America,” in a chapter titled, “I Wrote This Chapter After Noticing How Stupid Rich People Are,” inspired...

  • UCLA lefties blockade Milo's "Dangerous Faggot" speech

    Milo Yiannopoulis is a colorful, rightishly-inclined journalist at Breitbart currently touring American college campuses as part of his "Dangerous Faggot Tour". Shortly before 7 pm PST, two dozen left-wing activists blockaded the lecture hall entrance, preventing the entry of over 500 people who had paid to attend the event. At De Paul University in Chicago last week, BLM charged the stage and forcibly grabbed the microphone, occupied the stage and put a stop to the event after De Paul University administrators told security and police to take no action to stop the disruption. UCLA students trapped inside the blockaded event...

    In the wake of an undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood’s alleged fetal trafficking operation, the California state legislature is considering a bill that would criminalize publishing secretly recorded video footage of “health care providers.” AB 1671, which has been backed by Planned Parenthood, would criminalize the publication of confidential interactions with state-licensed medical personnel, including abortionists and clinician staff, punishable by up to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine per violation. Introduced by Los Angeles Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, the bill has received criticism from both pro-life activists and those who worry about its potential to chill free speech...

    Urban school districts from Los Angeles to Philadelphia are experiencing declining enrollment in traditional public schools as more parents enroll their children in charters, depleting millions in per-pupil funding from district budgets. In states experiencing population growth, such as Arizona, charter schools help relieve overcrowding. But for districts that are struggling financially, the student flight is costly. …

    Memorials to veterans in a Los Angeles neighborhood and a town in Kentucky, as well as a Civil War veterans cemetery in Virginia, were damaged as the nation prepares to mark Memorial Day, officials said. A Vietnam War memorial in the Venice area of Los Angeles has been extensively defaced by graffiti. The vandalism occurred sometime during the past week, KCAL/KCBS-TV reported. The homespun memorial painted on a block-long wall on Pacific Avenue lists the names of American service members missing in action or otherwise unaccounted for in Southeast Asia. News of the vandalism came as another veterans-related memorial was...
