    A California man who claimed to be an Air Force veteran and former police officer online was charged in New York on Tuesday with threatening family members of Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and a journalist over statements they made about the 2020 presidential election. The suspect, 35-year-old Robert Lemke, of Bay Point, Calif., allegedly threatened the congressman’s brother in a text message the same day a pro-Trump mob stormed the US Capitol on Jan. 6. “Your brother is putting your entire family at risk with his lies and other words. We are armed and nearby your house. You had better have...

    WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden and the new Democratic Congress were just sworn in, but the clock has already started on the 2022 midterm elections, when voters will decide if the president gets more than two years to advance his agenda with a friendly Congress. Democrats have to defend a narrow 221-211 majority in the House (218 seats are needed for control) and the 50-50 Senate, where losing even a single seat will cost the party the chamber. History is not on their side. Americans typically put a check on power, and the president's party has lost House seats in...

The willowy young twentysomething, in purple Batsheva brand dress, paired with an embellished Miu Miu tweed coat, amazed the glitterati. The Times of London anointed her a fashion icon and compared her to royalty. Pop Sugar deemed her "deeply, deeply cool." The New York Post crowned her the style...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband has placed up to $1 million worth of bullish bets on Tesla stock, the politician revealed in a financial disclosure form last week. Paul Pelosi, who runs an investment firm, bought 25 call options on Tesla stock with a strike price of $500 and an expiration date of March 18, 2022. He spent between $500,001 and $1 million on them on December 22. The call options give him the right to buy 2,500 Tesla shares at $500 each at any point before they expire in March 2022. That may sound like a fantastic deal with...

    San Francisco District 9 Supervisor Hillary Ronen was elated when Joe Biden signed an executive order last week that opens the door taxpayers to foot the bill for the cities homeless problems. Biden signed an executive order that was designed to increase reimbursements and other assistance to states to help cover costs related to the pandemic. The order states, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) shall “make available under Category B of the Public Assistance program such assistance as may be required by States (including territories and the District of Columbia), local governments, and Tribal governments to provide for the...

    Former presidential candidate and Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard slammed a ‘domestic terror’ bill proposed by Adam Schiff, saying it would target “half of the country,” and called on President Biden to denounce such efforts. The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021 was introduced in the House last week following mostly peaceful protests in the U.S. Capitol that got out of control. Democrats, in response to the rioting that took place, are seeking to expand the definition of domestic terrorism, according to Real Clear Politics. Gabbard (HI), in an interview with Fox News Primetime with host Brian Kilmeade, called the bill...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has gone on record praising the storming of the Capitol as an "impressive show of democracy in action" -- the 2011 invasion of the Madison, Wis., state capitol, that is. [snip] Ten years earlier, unionists stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol in an attempt to block a vote on collective bargaining reform. Thousands of demonstrators managed to enter the building by violently breaking down doors and shattering windows -- but the attack garnered much praise from Pelosi and other prominent Democrats at the time. The occupiers were praised publically by Pelosi for their "impressive show of democracy...

    Even in a one-party state like California, stupidity, arrogance, and incompetence can undo the political career of a governor who seemed to have all the ingredients for a run at the White House. Not too long ago, Gavin Newsom was considered as a serious presidential contender in 2024 and beyond for Democrats: movie star handsome, able to tap the largest pool of deep-pocketed Democrat donors, and pals with the Big Tech and Hollywood titans that dominate the nation's flow of information. But after a series of blunders revealing the aforementioned stupidity, arrogance, and incompetence, Newsom is fighting for his political...

    Politico on Friday broke the news that our newspaper of record has opted to jettison “freelance columnist” Willie Brown at month’s end, putting a belated conclusion on an inexcusable and, frankly, inconceivable situation. And it only lasted 12 years. Less time than the Central Subway project or Geary BRT - but an embarrassingly long stretch for something that shouldn’t have happened in the first place. Brown, former mayor and Assembly speaker, and still very much a mover and shaker, high-level information peddler, and registered and unregistered lobbyist in this town, should never have had a column in the San Francisco...

    LOS ANGELES — A former Transportation Security Administration agent who was accused of tricking a traveler into showing her breasts as she went through security at Los Angeles International Airport pleaded no contest Friday to false imprisonment, authorities said. The woman told investigators that Lomeli told her he had to look inside her bra to ensure she wasn't hiding anything, had her hold her pants away from her waist for a check, and then said he would take her to a private room for further security screening, prosecutors said. But when they were alone on an elevator, Lomeli told the...

    SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – It’s not uncommon in California for residents to seek recalls but they rarely get on the ballot - and even fewer succeed. Several launched against Newsom faded but another attempt is drawing greater attention as his fortunes change while he enters a critical stretch in his governorship. Recall organizers say they have collected have reached 1.2 million signatures toward the 1.5 million petition signatures needed to place the recall on the ballot, and they have until mid-March to hit the required threshold.

    The windows had “blown out from some type of explosion,” Cano said. The walls outside had been vandalized with profanity. Labeled a hate group for being “anti-LGBTQ” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the First Works Baptist Church is the subject of a campaign that’s seeking to oust the place of worship out of El Monte. The petition was started three weeks ago and has so far garnered more than 14,790 signatures. A group called Keep El Monte Friendly had planned a protest at the church this Sunday morning.

    The State of California became the worst of the 50 states in distributing its share of coronavirus vaccines on Thursday, as other states picked up their pace. Despite improving from 27.5% last week to 37.3% this week, California is “dead last,” as reported Friday: Thursday’s update to Bloomberg’s vaccine tracker shows that the national rate increased from 38.8% last week to 48.6% this week. Last week’s 50th-ranked state was Alabama, which saw its usage rate jump from 21.2% to 41.1% week-over-week. For reference, California was ranked 49th last week.
