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

Los Angeles Times, by Dakota Smith

Original Article

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.

Comments:
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.)

But no one stopped him before he killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Here’s a time line of incidents where Cruz was reported to law enforcement. Many of the incidents involve the threat of a school shooting. • Feb. 5, 2016: A Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy is told by an anonymous caller that Nikolas Cruz, then 17, had threatened on Instagram to shoot up his school and posted a photo of himself with guns.

Europeans rip Trump on climate change,

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang    Original Article

As France, Germany and Italy chastised President Trump for rejecting the Paris climate accord in June and mocked the U.S. for turning its back on the environment, their nations were busy importing record amounts of American coal. The U.S., federal data show, is seeing something of a coal renaissance, but the boom — partly the result of Mr. Trump’s aggressive policies to roll back Obama-era regulations on the fuel — largely has benefited foreign markets. Some of the biggest buyers are also the biggest critics of the Trump administration’s climate policy, including China and leading European nations that now claim to

New York University has issued a public apology and fired their director of food service after students pointed out the watermelon-flavoured water and collard greens the school was serving during Black History Month were racially insensitive. College of Arts and Science sophomore Nia Harris noticed the offensive meal when she walked into Weinstein Passport Dining Hall - before alerting the deans of the school and NYU’s President Hamilton of the insensitive and “stereotypical” meal. In her letter, which she also shared on Facebook, Harris wrote: “It is with great sadness and frustration that I even have to send this email.”

Parkland massacre gunman Nikolas Cruz was able to escape the Florida campus undetected because security guards were watching surveillance footage on a 20-minute delay. The confusion caused police to believe that Cruz was still on school premises, even though he had already left and was on the way to Subway and McDonald´s. Police searched for the gunman for 26 minutes using security cameras before realizing he wasn´t inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In footage reviewed by the Sun Sentinel officers can be heard saying that they are monitoring him on camera and he´s moved from the third to second floor.

Disney’s Broadway boss works on G-rated productions — but creates an X-rated workplace, colleagues claim in a new report. In an article published a day before his stage adaptation of “Frozen” opens in previews on the Great White Way, the Wall Street Journal reports that Disney Theatrical Productions president and producer Thomas Schumacher has a history of sexual harassment and making incredibly inappropriate remarks to co-workers. While previously working for the House of Mouse’s animation arm — where he was involved with “The Lion King” and “Pocahontas” — Schumacher allegedly made “salacious and inappropriate” remarks to a subordinate named Bruce Williams, including

The vicious MS-13 gang, stifled under former President George W. Bush, exploded during the Obama era fueled by 300,000 illegals, including those given amnesty under the DACA program, and has now been linked to crimes in 22 states, according to a new report. Since 2012, 207 murders have been tied to the gang called “Mara Salvatrucha,” and there are over 500 cases nationwide of MS-13 members being charged in major crimes, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies. But it can sometimes be hard to deport the illegals involved because about half of the crimes detailed in the

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century´s two greatest religious leaders, Martin Luther King and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country showered him with honors. So, the subtitle of Grant Wacker´s 2014 book "America´s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation"

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said.

Billy Graham and Ruth Bell met at Wheaton College in the fall of 1940. A vivacious and feisty beauty who had grown up in China as the daughter of Presbyterian medical missionaries, Ruth was the prize catch of her class. After a first date, to a performance of Handel’s “Messiah,” Billy wrote home to announce that he had met the girl he planned to marry. Ruth described Billy as “a man that knew God in a very unusual way.” Graham died Wednesday in his home in Montreat, N.C., at the age of 99. The courtship between Billy and Ruth, though hardly

For the past year, chief executives have often talked about the new sense of moral responsibility that corporations have to help their communities and confront social challenges even when Washington won’t. What if the finance industry — credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express; credit card processors like First Data; and banks like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo — were to effectively set new rules for the sales of guns in America? Collectively, they have more leverage over the gun industry than any lawmaker. And it wouldn’t be hard for them to take a stand.

With high school students from Parkland in the Capitol this week advocating for gun control, the bill that would have allowed superintendents and principals to designate trained employees who can carry concealed weapons at school didn’t get heard as scheduled. That did not stop debate over the issue. In fact, it had a growing national audience, spurred on by President Donald Trump’s endorsement of the idea on Wednesday. "If you had a teacher who was adept at firearms, they could very well end the attack very quickly," Trump said during a White House event with students and teachers. Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota,

On Tuesday evening, I was watching CNN (note to editor: my request for hardship duty pay will follow) when I observed a new low point – and considering the recent history of CNN, that’s really saying something. The program was The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer. Like all of the hosts on CNN, including news anchors, Blitzer is consistently anti-Trump so I wasn’t expecting anything close to fair and balanced. But what I saw this time was even more obnoxious and telling. As Blitzer and his talking head guests opined, a chyron on the bottom of the screen
