    It’s ironic when the liberal media uses the left’s own faulty climate change metrics to complain about liberal cities' carbon emissions. Reuters whined in a new report that “U.S. cities are underestimating their carbon dioxide emissions by an average of 18%, according to a study released on Tuesday, potentially hindering their efforts to craft effective policies to combat climate change.” But the kicker is that the big outliers Reuters claimed were underestimating their emissions were all Democrat-run cities: “Big outliers included Los Angeles, whose self-reported emissions were roughly 50% below the Vulcan readings, along with Chicago and New York, both...

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's (D) has come under fire for allegedly turning a blind eye to one of his top aide's sexual misconduct and harassment. Rick Jacobs, the mayor's deputy chief of staff, has been accused sexual assault and harassment. LAPD officer Matthew Garza, who has been on the force for 23 years and served on Garcetti's security detail, filed a lawsuit against the city earlier this week, accusing Jacobs of harassment. He said "Garcetti had witnessed the assault and harassment and did nothing to stop it, nor hold Jacobs accountable," Yashar Ali reported.According to Ali, he had personal experience...

    LOS ANGELES, CA—Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, having opposed large religious gatherings in his city for the past 7 months, has suddenly reversed course, allowing a large worship service to take place in the streets of the city last night. Despite the ban on religious gatherings, the worshipers came together to honor their god, LeBron James, in a spontaneous outpouring of love and praise. Worshipers in this religion, rather than singing songs or saying prayers, topple cars and throw things at the police.
  • From the Economy to Protests, Garcetti Lets Chaos Reign in L.A.

    09/15/2020 2:34:13 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | September 15, 2020 | Jesse Grady
    This has been a year of considerable unrest across the United States. The ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented shutdown of economic activity, and widespread protests have created chaos for months on end, even more so when considering this is all happening during an election year. Perhaps no place in the country, however, has been turned upside down in quite the same fashion as Los Angeles. Throughout the year, Los Angeles has felt every crisis more than any other city. Over the summer, COVID-19 tests seemed impossible to come by in the city, while data from the Centers...

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) said on Sunday that he would have responded differently to the coronavirus outbreak if President Trump had not downplayed its threat earlier this year. Garcetti said on CNN's "State of the Union" that he would have taken action earlier, and saved lives in the process, if Trump had publicly shared what he said privately to journalist Bob Woodward. “We were the first city to close things down, the first city to offer widespread testing. But we had to go it alone. And we heard that consistently. That's up to the states. That's up to...

    American Thinker has run several articles like this one about Dr. Anthony Fauci's political bias (which is his right).  But the Miami Herald published an article that was aimed at undermining President Trump, which actually contains compelling evidence that Fauci's bias or ignorance is affecting what he is telling the American people about COVID-19.  In the article "Dr. Fauci: 'I have to disagree' with Trump on coronavirus," the author writes: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious diseases expert, disagreed on Friday with President Donald Trump's assertion that the country is "rounding the corner" on the coronavirus pandemic.  "I really do believe we're rounding the corner," Trump...

    OAKLAND - Gov. Gavin Newsom has endorsed George Gascón to be Los Angeles’ next district attorney in a major boost to the progressive challenger. Gascón, a former San Francisco district attorney, is mounting a challenge from the left to incumbent Los Angeles DA Jackie Lacey. The race has national implications for an ascendant movement of progressive prosecutors like Gascón, and Newsom laid down an important marker on where he stands in that debate. **SNIP** While Newsom's long-standing relationship with Gascón does help explain his support, it also follows several prominent California Democrats endorsing Gascón or disavowing Lacey after George Floyd’s...

Their were upwards of 200 people in the facility at the time, where The Hill reports they were “illegally hosted.” Three women and two men were wounded by gunfire and a sixth individual was injured by being cut on a fence while trying to flee the bullets. ABC 7 reports shots were fired outside as well as inside the warehouse, and “police...
  • LA Mayor Will Cut Power, Water To Homes And Businesses That Disobey Him

    08/06/2020 9:41:46 AM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 120 replies
    L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that he ordered the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to cut off the water and electricity to any homes, venues, or businesses in violation of COVID-19 safety measures. In April, Garcetti enacted a similar order that applied to any non-essential businesses that defied his “Safer at Home” mandate. The announcement comes just days after Los Angeles police responded to a “gang related” shooting at a large house party in Beverly Crest. According to Garcetti, this order will help limit people’s right to assemble. “We’ve been clear from the beginning that getting together in...

    At the beginning of the year, it looked like Jeremy Miller and his 9-year-old daughter were finally going to have a home of their own. They’d been homeless and relying on family, shelters and motels for housing. But he’d found stable work in the Kern County oil fields and had enough money for an $875-a-month, two-bedroom rental in Bakersfield. They moved into the apartment in March, and Miller lost his job within days. The pandemic caused a worldwide drop in demand for oil, triggering mass layoffs in the oil patch. Miller tried to find other work through a temp agency,...

    07/29/2020 8:46:33 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | July 29, 2020 | Corrin Rankin
    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti had the audacity to join Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union program and blame his failed handling of the coronavirus pandemic on President Donald Trump. He said this as if his decisions have not directly resulted in LA’s surging cases and a corresponding rise in homicides.  Garcetti started out the interview by saying that the city “was left on their own” when they should have had help. But did the Mayor completely forget that President Trump, at the request of Governor Newsom, sent the USNS Mercy to the Port of Los Angeles early...

    The demonstration comes after fighting erupted July 12 in the Tavush province, along the border region of Armenia and Azerbaijan, the New York Times reported. “[Azerbaijan] began by shelling civilian populations, targeting civilian communities at the border with heavy artillery, tanks and combat drones,” said Alex Galitsky of the Armenian National Committee of America. “They damaged a number of civilian properties, including kindergartens, and also targeted a PPE mask facility, which is incredibly egregious given the fact that Armenia has been one of the worst countries in the world hit by the COVID-19 crisis.” Azerbaijan claims Armenia ignited the fighting....

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Wednesday that public protests are likely causing the number of citywide coronavirus cases to spike, just two days after claiming there wasn’t “any conclusive evidence” showing a connection between the two. Garcetti, a Democrat, was speaking at a press conference concerning the recent Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles when he was asked if the demonstrations were contributing to the spread of COVID-19. He claimed he’d consulted with Dr. Barbara Ferrer, LA County’s director of public health, and determined the protests were in fact contributing to the spread of the virus. “I talked...

  • Eric Garcetti Asks Demoralized LAPD to ‘Remember Why They Became Police Officers’

    07/02/2020 10:06:45 AM PDT · by rktman · 34 replies ^ | 7/1/2020 | Joel B Pollak
    Mayor Eric Garcetti said that Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers who felt demoralized by recent protests and budget cuts should take heart and “remember why they became police officers.” Garcetti was speaking after numerous reports of “record low” morale in the LAPD, after the Black Lives Matter riots led the mayor to announce $150 million in cuts to the department, which became official on Monday. Garcetti is also feuding with the local police union, which took offense last month when the mayor referred to police (in general) as “killers.” LAPD officers also learned that they would to be paid...

    Protesters in Golden Gate Park toppled statues of Fr. Junipero Serra, Francis Scott Key and President Ulysses S. Grant on Friday night, spurring a national debate over the complex legacies of those historical figures amid a broader movement to remove what critics say are monuments to white supremacy. A group of roughly 100 people pulled down the monuments displayed in the park’s Music Concourse near the de Young Museum and California Academy of Sciences, an eyewitness said. Police were called to the area just after 8 p.m., and said people in the group threw objects at the officers. The crowd...
