  • A teacher tased by the LAPD died of an enlarged heart and cocaine use, coroner says

    06/04/2023 9:24:36 PM PDT · by algore · 18 replies
    Keenan Anderson, a Black man who was repeatedly tased by police officers following a January traffic collision, died from the effects of an enlarged heart and cocaine use, the Los Angeles County medical examiner-coroner said. Anderson, a 31-year-old high school teacher and father from Washington, D.C., was also the cousin of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors. On Jan. 3, Anderson was trying to get help after a car crash in Venice, Calif., when he was chased, held down by multiple officers and tased for over 90 seconds. He'd been in California visiting family. Anderson was the suspect in a...

    In their 2010 sunshine pop song “San Francisco,” The Mowgli’s declared that they lost their heads in San Francisco. Now, it seems like San Francisco Travel has joined them, but in an unromantic and oblivious way. The tourism organization released an ad begging for tourists who're understandably avoiding the city because of its woke policies and their consequences to come back. Their strategy? Displaying how wonderfully woke the city truly is. “Always San Francisco” features, among other things, a dancing drag queen and a man in a wheelchair pretending to be a woman. The ad has gotten plenty of backlash...

    How many times have we seen this particular scenario? A group of whackos does something silly or egregious and folks on the opposite political team make it appear as if these few people represent the majority of the group. This is what occurred after the news broke about some individuals who vandalized an LGBTQ+ flag that belonged to an elementary school in Los Angeles.An investigation is reportedly underway after an LGBTQ+ flag placed in a plant pot outside a classroom at Saticoy Elementary School in North Hollywood was set on fire and destroyed. The incident is being treated as a...

Law enforcement rushed to the scene just before noon, where they took down the suspect in an 'officer-involved shooting' soon after locating him in the West Coast city. It is currently unconfirmed how many people were stabbed, however according to the Long Beach Post, up to four people may have been attacked near the Belmont Shore area.

    Is Michelle Obama going to replace Senator Feinstein to jumpstart a presidential run? What are the odds Gavin Newsom will replace Dianne Feinstein with Michelle Obama to start Obama’s real return to the White House? Barack Hussein Obama wants to finish off the country with a fraudulent fourth term with Michelle as the ‘president’, starting her run by being appointed to replace Dianne Feinstein. Consider the visible manifestations of the intrigue taking place behind the scenes of the fascist far left the past few days. One is the sudden re-emergence of Barack Hussein Obama and Michelle (aka ‘Big M’) along...

The two victims, who self-identified as Marines, say they were walking along the pier when they were confronted by the group of teens, of which there appeared to be more than 15, at around 9:50 p.m. Saturday.

    Gavin Newsom, the Democrat governor of the People's Republic of California, lambasted Brian Cornell, the CEO of Target, after the latter appeared to back off on promoting products touting the LGBT agenda. Newsom denounced the retail giant's decision to move LGBT products to the back of some stores subsequent to outrage from some conservatives and Christians at the retailer's embrace of a radical line of apparel and accessories, including some aimed at children. Target, long one of the "wokest" companies on earth, sells "chest binders" and "tuck friendly" swimsuits, and recently added several items designed by an avowed Satanist. Nonetheless,...

    Palo Alto, California, administrators have exempted a celebrity chef’s restaurant from the city’s sweeping gas stove ban. Jose Andres’ newly planned restaurant, Zaytinya, is one of the latest Simon Property Group (SPG) buildings that received project approval in 2019, including for a a gas line, which the restaurant relies on, according to Palo Alto Online. The plan, however, changed when planning staff informed the company that due to the City Council’s revision of the building code, the restaurant was required to use electric stoves. Simon wrote a letter in April threatening the city council with a lawsuit if it maintained...

    Former California governor and Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarzenegger called a presidential run by current Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) a “no-brainer” on Tuesday in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. Schwarzenegger said: "I think [Newsom running for president] is a no-brainer. Every governor from a big state wants to take that shot. What do I think about his performance? When you become part of the club, you don’t criticize governors — because you know how tough the job is. It’s impossible to please everybody. Before I ran for governor, I had an 80 percent approval rating. As soon as I announced,...
  • New California budget means a $6 billion cut, and future uncertainty, for climate spending

    For climate advocates, the growing state deficit unveiled in the revised 2023-24 state budget offers some bad news, some good news and a great deal of uncertainty. The good news is that despite California’s projected budget shortfall jumping from January’s estimate of $22.5 billion to the new estimate of $31.8 billion, the state isn’t planning additional cuts for climate projects. That leaves intact a five-year plan to spend $48 billion on climate. “We were really expecting there to be another round of massive cuts to the climate budget,” said Jamie Pew, climate fellow with the progressive group NextGen Policy. So,...
  • The Golden State? Newsom Admits that California Deficit is Now Roughly $32 Billion

    Recently, a witness at one of California’s reparations hearings demanded “where’s the money?” Gov. Gavin Newsom’s announcement that the state miscalculated its deficit by $10 billion seems to answer that question. As his reparations Task Force demands as much as $1.2 million per eligible black resident, Newsom recently balked at cash payments. After years of using reparations as a political issue and insisting that such payments are a moral imperative, many are pushing back that this bill is now due. A card will just not do. The new figure puts California’s debt at a towering $32 billion. There are various...

    Oakland teachers and the Oakland Unified School District reached agreement on Saturday evening on providing “reparations” for slavery for black students, though an ongoing strike still continues. As Breitbart News has reported, the teachers’ union went on strike earlier this month to demand salary increases and a variety of policy changes, including “reparations” for black students — who, ironically, they were denying access to education by going on strike with just a few weeks left in the 2022-23 school year.

    If you aren’t familiar with San Francisco, it’s almost impossible to know how far the once-beautiful city has fallen or how bad a mark the homeless, drug, and crime trifecta has trashed its iconic streets. New York reporter Elizabeth Weil wanted to dispel some of the horrible myths about San Francisco for her Curbed.com story, but, much to her dismay, she found those stories are far from “fake news.” “When I set out reporting, I wanted to write a debunking-the-doom piece myself,” Weil writes. “Yet to live in San Francisco right now, to watch its streets, is to realize that...
  • Did California Gov. Gavin Newsom's Luck Finally Run Out?

    Reason ^ | 5.12.2023 | Steven Greenhut
    After getting lucky for his first few years in office, Newsom now faces his first major budgetary crisis. How he responds will show a lot about his leadership skills. Gavin Newsom is perhaps one of the luckiest governors in California history given that he has presided during an economic boom that, at one point, left the state with an almost unimaginable $97.5-billion budget surplus. Mainly, all he had to do was propose spending programs—and he had compliant Democratic supermajorities to give him what he wanted. Even the COVID-19 situation, despite posing a serious public-health challenge, was a godsend for the...

    FIRST ON FOX: California Gov. Gavin Newsom declined to endorse the cash payments – which could reach as high as $1.2 million for a single recipient – recommended by his reparations task force, telling Fox News Digital that dealing with the legacy of slavery "is about much more than cash payments." "The Reparations Task Force’s independent findings and recommendations are a milestone in our bipartisan effort to advance justice and promote healing. This has been an important process, and we should continue to work as a nation to reconcile our original sin of slavery and understand how that history has...

    If you think the governor of the failing state of California, Gavin Newsom, has a lot of gall traveling to Red states to lecture them on what they are doing wrong, you are not alone. Disgust over Newsom's egregious political antics has even appeared in the liberal Atlantic magazine in an article on Friday by Conor Friedersdorf, "Gavin Newsom Is Not Governing." Ironically that was the very day that Newsom was forced to send National Guard troops into San Francisco in a desperate attempt to resolve the severe drug and homeless crises in that city that was allowed to fester...

    VIDEOWhile California Governor Gavin Newsom travels around the country to Red states to smugly tell them how horrible they are in comparison to his own state, he conveniently overlooks the apocalyptic drug hell of his own hometown of San Francisco. This video focuses in on one poor soul publicly overdosing but as you can see he is only a microcosm of what is happening all around him in San Francisco as well as the rest of the state.

    It looks like even the Oakland Athletics are joining the mass exodus of Californians fleeing for a better life. On Thursday, one of the MLB’s most iconic franchises announced that it has purchased land in Las Vegas, Nevada, after searching and failing to find land for a new stadium in Oakland. Now, the A’s will be building a gigantic $1.5 billion, 35,000-seat stadium in Sin City for the ball club, according to ESPN. “For a while, we were on parallel paths [with Oakland], but we have turned our attention to Las Vegas to get a deal here for the A’s...
