Downtown residents say City Hall
is ignoring fires on skid row
while cracking down in Bel-Air

Los Angeles Times, by Dakota Smith

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/28/2018 3:54:18 PM

After authorities determined that last month´s Skirball fire in Bel-Air was caused by a cooking fire at a homeless encampment, Mayor Eric Garcetti and fire officials unveiled a plan to clear tent clusters in hillside areas. But the announcement frustrated downtown business leaders, who say that fires on or near skid row are a daily problem that City Hall has not adequately addressed. (Snip) Homeless encampment fires are endangering human lives and businesses in skid row, community leaders say. The fires start when homeless residents cook, try to keep warm or use drugs. Other blazes are intentionally set.

Wherever the homeless congregate, problems ensue. The left won´t let them be institutionalized or kept in a vast containment area, so there´s no solution.

How many of those homeless are in fact illegals? Brush Clearance inspectors were cut back to pay for more illegal benefits.
Shutting down mental hospitals released illminto community without any support.
Liberals love illegals - aTaxpayers foot the bill.
Deport them all and then see how many homeless there are.

San Francisco is a mess. Los Angeles, because it is so much bigger, is a much bigger mess. All of it brought to us by long term Democrat political leadership. Democrats are skilled at winning elections and in keeping and increasing their political power, but when it comes to actually governing, they are a catastrophe. As far as I can see, almost every single city, county or state controlled by Democrats is a mess. (I would think there are exceptions to this rule, but I don´t know of any.)

Two European bicyclists found dead in a ravine in southern Mexico were robbed and murdered, authorities say, despite earlier claims they plunged to their deaths in an accident. Prosecutor Luis Alberto Sanchez said the bodies of Krzystof Chmielewski, of Poland, and Holger Hagenbusch, of Germany, were found at the bottom of a cliff in Chiapas state, the BBC reported. Chmielewski, 37, was shot in the head and found on April 26 about 130 feet below the road he’d been traveling on. Hagenbusch, 43, likely died from a head wound sustained during a beating and wasn’t discovered until May 4.

Three Bronx suspects were busted for conspiring to peddle the lethal opioid carfentanil — an elephant tranquilizer 100 times more potent than fentanyl, authorities said. A cooperating witness made three separate large carfentanil buys between Jan. 30 and March 28, leading to the arrest of the defendants, authorities said. Emanuelli Rivers, 32, along with Pedro Disla Rojas, 38, and Miguel Escano, 30, all of the Bronx, were charged with conspiring to distribute opioids. Each faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum of life if convicted. "Carfentanil is death, and drug dealers are packaging it for sale

London Mayor Sadiq Khan is under fire once again for prioritizing a ban on junk food advertising for the city’s transportation network while citizens grapple with a spate of stabbings. A flood of negative social-media feedback greeted Mr. Khan on Friday as he unveiled a “package of measures” aimed at curbing childhood obesity. The policy was touted as a “great example” by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but panned in Mr. Khan’s Twitter feed. “London has one of the highest childhood obesity rates in Europe, with 40% of children aged 10 & 11 overweight or obese,” Mr. Khan

President Trump said Friday he will put “American patients first” by speeding cheaper drugs to market, forcing companies to disclose prices and leveraging trade deals to put U.S. consumers on a level playing field with those abroad. The president also vowed to crack down on benefit managers who negotiate rebates from pharmacies manufacturers, saying they must pass savings to consumers instead of pocketing cash generated by higher list prices. “The middlemen became very, very rich,” he said. “They won’t be so rich anymore.” All told, Mr. Trump said his blueprint is the “most sweeping action in history to lower the

She’s never been a gambling fan, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren is pushing federal legislation to help deliver a casino to a tribe with a checkered past as she struggles to neutralize her “Pocahontas” problem. Her bill, introduced in March with fellow Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Edward Markey, would allow the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe to build a $1 billion gaming resort about halfway between Boston and Cape Cod even though a federal court blocked the project in 2016. (Snip) “It’s a tough call to make,” Ms. Warren told Reuters in 2014. “People need jobs, but gambling can also be a real problem economically for a lot of

President Trump boasted Thursday night that he secured the freedom of three American captives from North Korea for no money, while claiming that former President Barack Obama paid $1.8 billion to Iran to release U.S. hostages two years ago. Speaking at a boisterous campaign rally in Elkhart, Indiana, Mr. Trump exulted in the return of the three Americans whom he greeted earlier in the day upon their arrival back in the Washington area. “We didn’t pay for them,” Mr. Trump said. “They came out for nothing. Those hostages came out with respect.” Referring to Mr. Obama’s negotiations with Iran in 2016, Mr. Trump said,

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the ´terrible joke´ a White House aide told about cancer-stricken John McCain and said if his own aide made such an error he would apologize. Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark. Asked if he was satisfied with the White House response, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, responded: ´No, not really.´ He called Kelly Sadler´s reported joke about McCain´s opposition to Trump CIA

Washington - Senate candidate Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday a prominent Baptist minister shouldn’t be giving the prayer that opens the US Embassy in Jerusalem because he’s a “religious bigot.” In a tweet, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee criticized Dallas minister Robert Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam. The Jerusalem Open House on Monday also lambasted Jeffress’s participation, saying he had in the past called gay rights promoters “pedophilia activists” and said homosexuality was a “perversion.” Jeffress, a Southern Baptist who vigorously

Martin Luther King Jr. once said there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance. Well, sincere ignorance had a banner day last week when President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. A CNN/ORC poll taken shortly before Trump’s decision found that a majority of Americans — 63 percent — wanted the U.S. to stay in the deal. But get this: 62 percent of Americans believed Iran had violated its terms. To me, the second result is the more alarming. That poll is proof of sincere ignorance of the deal on the part of nearly two-thirds of Americans. They are under the spell of Trump’s

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of

We’re all educated by our peers and, over the years, a good portion of Donald Trump’s peers have been thugs. Operating in the New York construction world meant dealing with S&A Concrete, co-owned by "Fat Tony" Salerno of the Genovese crime family, and John Cody, the notorious head of Teamsters Local 282, who was convicted on racketeering and tax evasion charges. Building casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., brought Trump into similarly genteel circles. Trump’s hero was Roy Cohn, who unfortunately was born too late to serve the emperor Caligula.
