LA´s Battle for Venice Beach: Homeless Surge
Puts Hollywood´s Progressive Ideals to the Test

Hollywood Reporter, by Scott Johnson and Peter Kiefer

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/12/2019 4:38:52 AM

After the first attack, Randy Osborn figured it was just his turn. Tire slashings in his east Venice Beach neighborhood had become commonplace. But when his vintage Land Rover was hit a sixth time in the course of a few months, Osborn, who runs a small virtual reality company and has lived in Venice for seven years, began to worry he was being singled out. "It may have been random, but it sure felt targeted and concentrated," says Osborn, who now protects his tires each night with a jury-rigged plywood-and-chain contraption that has so far deterred the assailants.

NIMBY arrives in Venice Beach.

"I can´t accept the idea that there is an inextricable link between crime and homelessness. It is wrong, it is not backed up by the data, and it leads to bad policy."

Funny because we live in an area with no homeless and no crime. It is people like this with no sense of reality. Keep building shelters and watch the property values fall.

man, this article just made my day.
Homeless housing should be built in a remote part of LA county with double chain link fencing topped by razor wire. Irrigate a few thousand acres around it (LA county is HUGE) and turn it into a truck and dairy farm. If the´homeless´ want to work, pay them minimum wage - they can provide much of their own food as well as likely the entire produce need of the county jail system.
In a less pc time, this would have been called a county work farm

On my, SO many good quotes in this article but this one stood out for me:

"Bonin ( a city Councilman advocating for the shelters) sent out a survey like 10 months ago asking residents where would be a good place for the shelter," says software executive Travis Binen, who lives directly across from the Metro bus depot and has emerged as one of the most vocal opponents to the bridge shelter. "Of the 641 surveys returned, only 5 percent pointed to [the Metro bus depot] as a good location. More people pointed to Bonin´s house. He is, like, the most hated man in Venice." Binen, who spends four hours a day online organizing against the shelter, says his activity has pushed him rightward.

When the progressive social justice warriors get smacked in the face with the reality of what they profess to care about.

As the article says, Venice Beach has long been “gritty”. The gentrification and multi-star restaurants and the (really ugly) Frank Gehry-designed houses and the bright yellow Range Rovers have only exacerbated that. Always a home to the Bohemian set (hippy set, whatever - choose an era), Venice Beach caught the eye of those living with too much money in the more uptight areas on the West Side and they decided it was the place for them. Did they really expect the gangs who had been terrorizing one side of Venice to just go away? Did they expect the homeless to suddenly evaporate? A colossal case of NIMBY once they had staked out their new territory.

I lived near there in an oceanfront high rise apartment building in the 70s. Venice Beach was a sort of a neat funky place to visit, to ride a bike, to walk and check out the unusual shops. In the daytime. But I recall an artist friend’s moving there from Santa Barbara ten years later who told me that every move in was watched for signs of big TVs and other signs that a new resident was ripe for burglary. That was in the 80s. The Hollywood types paid no attention and moved right in.

You can’t fix stupid.

The flood of people coming here from other states, coupled with the illegals dumped her by this and past administrations has been overwhelming.
Our population is rising by over 300,000 a year, that amounts to building a new small city every year just to accommodate that.
If this article helps convince people from other states to stay home, everyone here will be grateful.

FTA:
"A 2006 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Jones v. City of Los Angeles required that law enforcement and city officials no longer enforce the ban on sleeping on sidewalks anywhere in the city until a sufficient amount of permanent supportive housing could be built. Further complicating matters were two state ballot measures that voters overwhelmingly approved in 2016 — Propositions 47 and 57 — which decriminalized certain felonies to misdemeanors in an effort to address the state´s overburdened prison system. Officials, including Bonin, admit that those measures have complicated matters for law enforcement, who make arrests only to see the same perpetrators back on the street days later."

You will reap what you sow.

Love seeing them have to deal with the real world results of their idiot leftist views.

Life is all about choices, and they have repeatedly chosen insane, counterproductive things - and are getting a lesson in real world outcomes.

Zero sympathy. Perhaps someday these foolish children will grow up, but I am skeptical.

Oregon Could Become the First State to Require

If Oregon Governor Kate Brown has her way, the Beaver State will become the first to require universal home visits for newborn children in the care of their own parents. Senate Bill 526, introduced this month in the Oregon Legislative Assembly as part of Brown´s budget, orders the Oregon Health Authority to "study home visiting by licensed health care providers." Lawmakers went so far as to declare that SB 526 is an "emergency" measure — one that requires a resolution by the end of the year.

On Tuesday, the Knights of Columbus (KOC) and Marist Poll released a survey showing that almost two-thirds of Americans would like the Supreme Court to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, even if they would not advocate directly against the decision. "Almost two-thirds, 65 percent, would like the Supreme Court to reinterpret Roe in a way that would functionally overturn it," Andrew Walther, KOC´s communications and government affairs executive, told reporters on a call. Rather than asking Americans whether they support or oppose Roe v. Wade, Marist and KOC asked about the ideal outcome

Citing unnamed “former law enforcement sources and others,” the New York Times reports that “in the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.” The mainstream media has touted this story as major breaking news. But, to anyone who has been paying even a modicum of attention, it is crystal clear that Comey’s firing did not precipitate the FBI’s investigation of Trump. To the contrary, the readily available record facts demonstrate

Congress Is Not a Coequal Branch

When Nancy Pelosi was sworn in as speaker of the House earlier this month, she promised the American people renewed congressional vigor. Congress, she solemnly declared, is “coequal to the presidency and judiciary,” and House Democrats would act accordingly. Democratic partisans masquerading as public intellectuals have similarly rediscovered the virtues of legislative power, touting the importance of Congress as a coequal branch of government. The problem with this? Congress is not coequal. It is superior. The notion of coequality of the branches is a myth that has been popularized over the past half century, during the rise

Joe Lieberman Called Chinese Telecom

Joseph Lieberman, the former Connecticut senator and Democratic vice presidential candidate, is working for a company he once called a national security threat. In November, Lieberman registered as a lobbyist for ZTE, a Chinese telecom giant with close links to the country’s government. The ex-Senator told Politico that, despite his registration, he wouldn’t actually be lobbying for the firm. Rather, he hoped to “raise the level of trust in ZTE.” Lieberman certainly should understand the trust deficit the company faces. In 2010, he signed a letter saying ZTE and another Chinese telecom company, Huawei, could threaten American national security.

A former Justice Department lawyer told Fox News on Monday that Congress and courts should not be allowed to overcome executive privilege after calls this weekend by high-ranking Democrats to subpoena notes or testimony from the interpreter who was at several meetings between President Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined
