    The Democrats Don’t Have a Foreign Policy, They Have A Trump Policy Not just treasonous, stupid. May 10, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. Quick, what’s the Dem position on Syria? What about China? Don’t bother. There was once a time when Democrats could discuss Syria, North Korea, the South China Sea, economic tensions in the European Union and the future of Africa. But that was before Trump. Democrats don’t have a foreign policy anymore. They have a Trump...
  • Before becoming LAPD chief, Moore retired, collected a $1.27-million payout, then was rehired

    Before Michel Moore was promoted to become the Los Angeles Police Department’s new chief in June, he took a brief, highly unusual retirement. He left as chief of operations for only a few weeks before rejoining the force in the same job at the same pay. But the move provided him with a financial windfall: a lump sum retirement payment of $1.27 million from the city.
  • If Trump’s Walk of Fame star goes, others should follow

    Hollywood hates Donald Trump so much it doesn’t consider him worth walking on. That’s fine, but how about a little less preening and lot more consistency? The West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution seeking to remove Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s a purely symbolic gesture, since the Walk of Fame is in the City of Los Angeles and is run by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. But the West Hollywood types weren’t going to let such details get in way of some good virtue signaling. The resolution cited Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and...

    ANGELINO HEIGHTS (CBSLA) — A method of deterring homeless people from sleeping in a part of Los Angeles dealing with the crisis is drawing mixed reactions from neighbors. A homeless encampment once stood on a section of Custer Avenue in Angelino Heights near where the 101 and 110 freeways connect. The cul-de-sac right off Sunset Boulevard now has several large boulders strewn about the sidewalks and patches of dirt, ostensibly to prevent people from sleeping there. Joe Illeng used to be homeless and now has a home and a family. However, he told CBS2 News this in no way to...

    The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce previously said it would never remove a star over backlash. The West Hollywood City Council will vote Monday night on a resolution urging the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to permanently remove Donald Trump’s walk of fame star. The marker, which was unveiled in 2007, has been vandalized numerous times and completely destroyed twice to date. "The City Council will consider adopting a resolution urging the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove President Donald J.

  • No Takers? Illegal Immigrants Not Exactly Flocking To Register To Vote In San Francisco

    Ever since San Francisco passed their new measure allowing non-citizens (including illegal aliens) to vote in school board elections, the debate over such a concept has flared up yet again. Despite polls showing that only Democrats approve of such an idea in anywhere near majority numbers, there are a lot of Democrats in the Bay area, so you’d think it would be a welcoming environment for them. That’s why it’s rather odd that so few non-citizens have been lining up to register to vote. How few, you ask? Registration opened on July 16th, but as of last Thursday, August...

    New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, currently one of the leading lights of the Democrats’ left-wing, is on a tour of the West Coast -- but is notably avoiding meeting up with the region’s Hollywood elites. Ocasio-Cortez, who represents the party’s democratic socialist wing, has visited homeless areas on Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood, and has met with liberal activists. But as she has held low-dollar fundraisers, she has not engaged in glitzy events with high-profile Democratic donors and Hollywood celebrities. The move has already raised eyebrows, with The Hollywood Reporter asking: “Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Too Far Left for Hollywood?”...

    Basketball legend Michael Jordan voiced his support for LeBron James on Saturday after President Donald Trump posted a critical tweet regarding the Los Angeles Lakers superstar. According to Geoff Bennett of NBC News, Jordan released a statement through a spokesperson that read, "I support LJ. He's doing an amazing job for his community." On Friday night, Trump questioned James' intelligence and suggested he preferred Jordan: @realDonaldTrump LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike! Jordan was the latest in a long line...

    Los Angelians eager to fill their fall wardrobes with fur may want to stock up now, as city council members have introduced a proposal banning its sale. If the measure passes, the City of Angles would be the largest American metropolis to bar the sale and production of the controversial product. On August 1, over a dozen animal welfare activists met with Councilman Paul Koretz at City Hall to discuss the issue, the L.A. Times reports. If the proposal, written by Koertz and fellow council member Bob Blumenfield, were to pass, L.A. would join West Hollywood, Berkeley and San Francisco in instating...

A witness to the tragedy said Perez began a “sawing motion against her throat and cut her throat,” at which point LAPD fired 18 shots, killing both Perez and his hostage. There is an ongoing investigation as to whether the officer’s actions align with hostage training protocol.

    President Donald J. Trump unloaded today on the mainstream media for contributing to the dilapidated state of trust in America's institutions and his administration, saying that 90% of the coverage was negative, which has put the lives of many at risk.  When the media - driven insane by their Trump Derangement Syndrome - reveals internal deliberations of our government, it truly puts the lives of many, not just journalists, at risk!

    I got my driver’s license renewal notice from the DMV the other day. This time, I was informed, I’d have to renew in person, although I could make the process easier by completing my application online. When I tried, however, I got an error message. I could not submit an online application if I wanted a license that was also a Real ID.

    While Republicans continue to hide their heads in the sand and allow Donald Trump to run roughshod over the Constitution and reality in general, Rep. Auntie Maxine Waters (D-CA) continues to call out Vladimir Putin’s puppet on his lies, hypocrisy and racism. This time around the never scared congresswoman teed off on the laziest president in American history during an interview on MSNBC after she was asked about Trump’s threat to shut down the government if he doesn’t get funding for his border wall. You know, that same border wall he promised Mexico was going to pay for and is...

    If Ronald Reagan was the “Teflon president,” Donald Trump must be the Incredible Hulk president. The more the left and the media attack him, the stronger he gets. This past week was a great example. It began with CNN worrying that fears of Russian collusion had seeped into the “bloodstream” of American politics after President Trump’s Helsinki press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. CNN’s Reliable Sources newsletter described the situation ominously: “When historians look back on the Trump presidency, they'll say that last week was the moment something changed – when uncomfortable Q's about Russia moved into the mainstream...

    REMANSO TALISMA, Brazil — The death of a myth begins with stinging eyes and heaving chests here on the edge of the Amazon rain forest. Every year, fire envelops the jungle, throwing up inky billows of smoke that blot out the sun. Animals flee. Residents for miles around cry and wheeze, while the weak and unlucky develop serious respiratory problems. When the burning season strikes, life and health in the Amazon falter, and color drains out of the riotous green landscape as great swaths of majestic trees, creeping vines, delicate bromeliads and hardy ferns are reduced to blackened stubble. But...

    Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters on Wednesday took a shot at fellow Democrats who want to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which is tasked with enforcing the nation’s immigration laws. Democrats who want to abolish ICE — a deeply unpopular political position — “didn’t really think it through,” Waters said at CNBC’s Capital Exchange Breakfast. Her comments were first reported by left-wing website Vox.
