    Republican Joe Collins, a Navy veteran challenging Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters in California’s 43rd Congressional District, launched a campaign ad Saturday blasting the congresswoman for residing outside the district she represents while her constituents “suffer the consequences” of her policies. “Maxine does not live in her district. But I do. I was born right here in South L.A., in a place Maxine refuses to live,” Collins says in the ad. “Maxine Waters does not drink our water. She does not breathe our air. And while she sits here in her mansion, our district is in ruins.” ... Do you know...

In the video, Collins says “Maxine does not live in her district. But I do. I was born right here in South L.A., in a place Maxine refuses to live. Maxine Waters does not drink our water. She does not breathe our air. And while she sits here in her mansion, our district is in ruins.” “And why doesn’t Maxine Waters want to live in her own district?

    The Lakers star, who’s currently competing for an NBA championship in Florida, just bought a Mediterranean-style compound in the Beverly Hills Post Office area for $36.75 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Spanning 2.5 acres, the property was sold by the estate of Lee Phillip Bell, the talk show host and “The Young and the Restless” co-creator who died earlier this year. The mammoth deal marks an eastward move for James, who also owns a pair of homes in Brentwood: one that he bought for $21 million in 2017 and another that he picked up two years later for...

    A couple brandished an AR-15 and a handgun at protesters marching past their mansion in an upscale St. Louis neighborhood. Husband and wife, Mark and Patricia McCloskey could be seen aiming the guns at demonstrators who walked by their palatial property in the wealthy Forest Park area at around 6pm on Sunday. At one point, the pair seemed to be unknowingly pointing their weapons at one another other while trying to keep protesters away from their home - dubbed the Niemann Mansion. The protesters were en route to Mayor Lyda Krewson's home to demand her resignation after she released the...

    No visitors allowed - even in death. Jeffrey Epstein’s estate is fighting a legal effort by one of his alleged victims to send a video crew to the perv’s Upper East Side mansion and island retreat. The victim, identified in papers only as Priscilla Doe, wants to film the areas where she says she was abused and show a jury, through video footage, that she could not easily escape the multimillionaire sex offender. “The grandeur and opulence of the Epstein properties alone demonstrate the power disparity between Epstein and Doe and thus are directly relevant to critical issues to be...

    **SNIP** The 77-year-old has touted himself as "Middle-Class Joe" for decades - but he and his wife, Jill, have a net worth of $9 million, according to a Forbes estimate from July 2019. The couple's fortune is mostly tied to public speaking engagements and book royalties, according to tax returns and financial disclosures released by the Biden campaign and published on the campaign's website. **SNIP** Since 1998, the first year Biden released his tax returns, the majority of the Bidens' income was attributed to his Senate salary and her community college professor's salary, according to Forbes. Biden's salary in 2009,...

    Regis Philbin and his wife Joy have put their Greenwich, Conn., home on the market — at a much lower price than they bought it. The 13,661-square-foot residence is selling for $4.595 million, according to the listing. That price is actually 36 percent less than what the Philbins paid for it almost 10 years ago, The Wall Street Journal reported. “Every seller in Greenwich is having to adjust to this market,” the property’s listing agent, Joseph Barbieri of Sotheby’s International Realty Greenwich Brokerage told FOX Business. […] The English Manor-inspired house has six bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and three partial...

    New York woke Sunday to learn that state lawmakers had agreed to a budget that aims to spend a whopping $175 billion in the next fiscal year, while imposing a boatload of new taxes and fees in the name of funding the MTA. More hits to your pocket, and more spending, are still to come: The budget also sets up “independent” commissions to settle the details of both public funding of state political campaigns and “congestion” tolls in Manhattan. Plus, lawmakers this year may yet legalize online sports betting and the sale of pot, each of which will come with...

    Not sure on their excerpt policy- so I'll just post the link here, and point out that in their report, they make no mention of the fact that this pitcher donated this property to a Christian camp, Camp Barnabas, and don't mention the fact that this camp puts Christ first, and always "points people to Christ in everything we do". This is an old story from 2017, but thought it was pretty cool.

    At a recent speech in South Africa, former President Barack Obama criticized wealth inequality, saying those who have more money should share their earnings with the less fortunate. “Right now, I’m actually surprised by how much money I got,” Obama said of the more than $20 million he earned between 2005 and 2016. Obama then chided wealthy individuals for excess, saying, “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.” “We’re going to have to worry about economics if we...

    In 2014, the city demanded that the 69-year-old Hadid, father of models Bella and Gigi Hadid, stop construction on the mansion, saying the structure at 901 Strada Vecchia Rd. was being built larger and taller than the city had authorized. The city again ordered him to halt construction in 2015. City officials also said the building included a series of unapproved features, including concrete decks, retaining walls, basements, stairways and even a subterranean IMAX theater. Despite officials pulling Hadid’s building permits and issuing stop-work orders, construction continued anyway, prompting the L.A. City Attorney’s office to bring charges against him. …...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's president apologized on Monday for a 2014 scandal involving a $7 million mansion bought by his wife from a company that won lucrative contracts with his administration. President Enrique Pena Nieto had reacted crossly at the time to those who criticized the purchase, saying there were "countless versions and falsehoods" surrounding the story. First lady Angelica Rivera also reacted angrily at the time, denying she had done anything wrong. She claimed she was using money she earned during her career as an actress. But she later returned the mansion, which she had been paying for...

Fieldwalker said accessing the properties is simple: “We just go up to them and shoot.” In the following film posted to Fieldwalker’s Vimeo page, the viewer is brought inside a 3,430 square-foot Point Grey teardown on Drummond Drive, which last year sold for $17.5 million. The property’s overgrown lawn, mossy shingles, smashed windows and missing doors suggest it’s been many years since anyone called it home. It's...

    A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that one of the United States Navy’s top commanders was relieved of his command a few hours ago after he sent out an “email/posting” revealing that President Barack Obama was in the process of purchasing a multi-million dollar seaside luxury villa in the United Arab Emirates city (UAE) of Dubai. According to this report, the Commander of the US Navy’s Carrier Strike Group 15, Rear Admiral Rick Williams, posted a “pointed” query on 8 January [since deleted] to the US Naval Institute’s “Readiness Kill Chain” “recipients/responders”...
