‘Entitlement’ for the Homeless

In 2016 influential political leaders, activists, and media outlets in Los Angeles said they had a simple solution to homelessness: build more housing. Echoing an argument heard across the country, they claimed that rising rents have thrown people onto the streets and that by directly providing free “permanent supportive housing,” cities can reduce the number of people on the streets and save costs on emergency services. In response, 77 percent of Los Angeles voters approved a $1.2 billion bond for the construction of 10,000 units for the city’s homeless. That commitment made Los Angeles the most significant testing ground for the “Housing First” approach that has become the dominant policy idea

It’s hard to find a good historical parallel for what America is undergoing. Yes, it’s a revolution, but in key respects one very unlike those with which we’re historically familiar. For one thing, there’s been no sudden seizure of power. Our revolutionaries have slowly percolated their way to the top. But even more curious is the fact that while previous revolutionaries (Snip)all professed love for their countries’ common people, ours accuse them of systemic villainy. Yet if one shifts the analogical frame, this last curiosity clarifies. America’s current revolution is less like that of France or Russia and more like what the African or Asian lands under British and French

When Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was outed last month for a secretive trip to Florida in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, her office claimed Michigan taxpayers did not foot the bill. What they did not tell us, however, is that Whitmer asked a group of wealthy Detroit businessmen to provide a private plane they share. Those businessmen have major dealings in and with the state of Michigan. “We wondered why she reached out to us instead of booking a private charter,” said one of the plane's owners, who exchanged his candor for confidentiality. “You can't tell a governor no. Who needs that kind of trouble?”

RICHLAND COUNTY, S.C. - The Richland County Sheriff’s Department said a Fort Jackson Army trainee left the base Thursday morning and hijacked a school bus. Sheriff Leon Lott said the trainee was wearing physical training clothes when he left the base at about 7 a.m. with a rifle. Lott said someone called the sheriff’s office about a man attempting to flag down cars on Interstate 77. Shortly after, a deputy was stopped on Percival Road by a parent of one of the students on the school bus. The parent told the deputy that their child was on the bus and there was a man with a gun on the bus, Lott said.  CORRECTIONS*

Earlier this week, PJ Media was the first to report that 12 Texas counties have declared emergencies due to the chaos the Biden border policies are causing. Since then, we have learned that four more counties have declared emergencies, bringing the total to 17. The additional counties that have or are set to declare emergencies are Davis, Medina, Terrell, Val Verde, and Live Oak. The land area these counties cover includes regions well away from the border and is larger than many whole states. The Border Patrol continues doing what it can, with no policy help from Washington, to stem the tide of human trafficking that has exploded across the border.

In the 8 am hour of Thursday's Fox & Friends, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) signed a new election law on live television, an exclusive that other media couldn't attend. Naturally, the liberal media were outraged. On his MSNBC show this morning, Craig Melvin complained You'll notice this video that we are using is from Fox News. That's because it was the only media outlet that was allowed in the room when it was signed. All other media outlets were shut out."

It is no shocker that in South Florida, a distinctly Indigo-hued segment of a red state, the local press leans left. As an example, after winning a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the graft and incompetence in the Broward Sheriff’s office following the Parkland shooting, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel backed the embattled Scott Israel in his bid to retain his office, because the last thing they would do is support a Republican candidate running for the position.

(Snip) Allen then asserted that “the formal rules of Jim Crow were accompanied by a set of informal ones that governed the way Black people approached White people in public space and vice versa.” This social order “required Black people to yield to White people whenever possible” -- such as “stepping off the sidewalk when a White person was walking past.”

Up until COVID hit, Dr. Joseph Mercola was a well-respected osteopathic physician and best-selling author whose specialty was natural health – that is, maintaining good health through smart nutrition and healthy living. Since the left was long about natural health, he was even featured in such leftist media outlets as Time, Forbes, and CNN.

President Biden’s $1.8 trillion families plan actually costs $2.5 trillion and would shrink the economy in the long run because of escalating debt, according to projections released Wednesday by an influential budget model out of the University of Pennsylvania. The study came as Mr. Biden vowed not to add to federal deficits to get his agenda through and pointed to other analyses that are more bullish on his plans. The pricier estimate comes from a boost in projected costs for tax credits and spending on provisions like universal pre-K and free community college, according to the Penn Wharton Budget Model.

A Texas Democrat who has been critical of Biden administration policies at the U.S.-Mexico border lashed out this week, accusing the administration of posting misleading photos from a migrant processing facility. U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar accused the Department of Homeland Security of trying to create the impression the facility in Donna, Texas, was emptying out, when in fact the migrant youths who had been located there were simply moved to a nearby location. "All they’re doing is, they’re moving kids from one tent to the other tent and saying, ‘Oh, they’re not in the Border Patrol (custody),’" Cuellar said, according to Border Report.

Nearly 25,000 migrant children were in the custody of the government, apart from their families, in early May. The number of unaccompanied migrant children in the federal government's care is at an all-time high, easily eclipsing the corresponding total in 2018 when the Trump administration pursued a policy that led to the intentional separation of children from their families, eliciting major controversy. The situation underscores the severity of the crisis facing President Joe Biden early in his administration and the moral quandary he faces.

Recent reports detailed the effort by state lawmakers to stop the sale of land to a Chinese subsidiary for a windmill farm only 70 miles from a U.S. Air Force Base.In April, the state Senate passed a bill, which banned businesses backed by hostile nations, like China and Iran, from seeking infrastructure contracts in the state. Shortly after, a Texas congressman introduced a bill in Washington to stop countries from buying land within 100 miles of military installations and 50 miles from military areas.
