That's right, folks -- criminal charges.I imagined such a circumstance would happen under the rule of Democrats in my new book, "Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation."Harvest Rock has been holding indoor worship services in violation of Governor Gavin Newsom’s China Virus orders. The congregation was also observed not wearing masks and not complying with social distancing rules."All of these...

Gatter is back in the news after a new video from the Center For Medical Progress finds her doubling down on her shockingly callous remarks of two years ago. "I did it in L.A. I'm committed to...

    Xazier Bias walked out of the Whole Food Market in Pasadena and saw another woman looking to the ground puzzled at the white stuff covering the sidewalk. The woman wasn’t sure exactly what she was looking at. But Bias, who is originally from the East Coast, quickly set her straight. It was snow. “People didn’t know what it was,” Bias said. “I was like, no, this is snow.” It was that kind of day in some parts of Southern California, which saw snow level plunge to extremely low levels, creating a winter wonderland, at least for a minutes. Snow fell...

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - NASA's seemingly unstoppable Mars rover Opportunity has been knocked out by a gigantic dust storm that is enveloping the red planet and blotting out the sun. Officials said Wednesday they're hopeful the rover will survive the storm, which already covers one-quarter of Mars and is expected to encircle the planet in another few days. It could be weeks or even months, though, until the sky clears enough for sunlight to reach the Martian surface and recharge Opportunity's batteries through its solar panels. For now, Mars' oldest working rover is stuck in the middle of the raging...

    If the economy is doing just fine, then why is homelessness at levels not seen “since the Great Depression” in major cities all over the country? If the U.S. economy was actually in good shape, we would expect that the number of people that are homeless would be going down or at least stabilizing. Instead, we have a growing national crisis on our hands. In fact, within the past two years “at least 10 cities or municipal regions in California, Oregon and Washington” have declared a state of emergency because the number of homeless is growing so rapidly. Things are...

    Last week I wandered into the Church of Scientology in Pasadena, California, and what happened during my visit made me afraid for the church's members. While shopping along Raymond Avenue in Old Town Pasadena last week, my friend and I stopped into the Church of Scientology to take a free personality test that was advertised on an A-frame chalkboard sign just outside. As a Christian, I wasn’t really searching for guidance or salvation, but I wanted to hear the Church of Scientology’s elevator pitch. I wanted to know what they said to make people fork over massive amounts of money,...
