Night after night, Sheila Nassau hunts for a good spot to sleep in Hollywood — somewhere safe where no one will bother her.It’s not easy, she said. Under existing rules in Los Angeles, homeless people who bed down on the streets for the night are supposed to stay away from doorways and driveways. Now a plan under consideration at City Hall could make it harder to find a spot by imposing rules that would bar people from resting on streets and sidewalks in at least 26% of the city, a Times analysis has found.Those restrictions would come on top of existing rules that put other areas of L.A.

I suggest Sheila ask the Los Angeles Times to open their offices at night for her and her friends.

IF the plan passes. My guess is that the only places homeless will be prohibited from camping out is in front of the LA City Hall and other city office buildings (libraries and schools excluded), homes of city council members and other protected species (Democrat politicians and Hollywood elites).

How mean spirited! Create an attractive location for the homeless and then shut them out. I guess virtue signaling only goes so far with hypocrites.

Causing the homeless population to be compressed to smaller and smaller areas, thus increasing density and the spread of disease. Brilliant!

Why don't these idiots opposing the ordinance open their homes, porches, gazebos, covered walkways/car shelters, and spacious lawns for the homeless? They can feed and clothe them too. Demonrats only care about the homeless since they're a ripe area for vote harvesting.

I suggest the homeless ban together and move to the lovely campuses of the techies like Google and Apple not to mention the lovely homes of the "STARS" who are always mouthing their support.

I gave up on Los Angeles decades ago. Dreadful politics. Used to watch the LAUSD school board meetings on public TV for their combined horror-amusement value. Pathetic lefty Mayor Garcetti keeps whining “build more shelters” when the conventional wisdom, from the homeless themselves, is that they don’t want shelters. They cannot keep their stuff when they go to places where they’d have a clean bed, showers, free food. And would have to give up their “habits”. Shelters do not have room for all the detritus that these people haul around with them. The good news is that Southern California has great weather, all year ‘round. The bad news is that those who are living rough gravitate to places where the weather is good. They don’t need more encouragement. They do need discipline. I could not move onto the sidewalk in front of my own house and set up camp.

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) stated that he believes there is “very strong” evidence on a “dozen” impeachable offenses by President Trump.Nadler said, “You may have personal opinions, but you don’t start off with an official conclusion. You examine the evidence and you make a conclusion. Now, I think, personally, the evidence is very strong on a dozen different impeachable offenses, but that’s my personal opinion at the moment. We are going to have a very aggressive series of hearings starting next Tuesday to bring out the witnesses.”

Now that Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is opening to development, you're seeing reports of its limited potential. The media are downplaying the significance of one of President Trump's signature achievements. They don't know what they're talking about.When Alaska was granted statehood in 1959, it was given the right to select 103 million acres of the federal land in Alaska, 28% of the total. Its first choice was ANWR, on the north slope of the Brooks Range. This was based on the advice of George Gryc, who had studied the arctic slope for the U.S. Geologic Survey.

HOUSTON—For many Americans watching the Democratic debate on Thursday night, Joe Biden's "record player" comment was yet another sign of his age. But to others, his suggestion that black parents "don't know quite what to do" with their children was a worrying instance of the former vice president being tone deaf on race. In a question on racism in the United States, moderator Linsey David asked Biden, 76: "In a conversation about how to deal with segregation in schools back in 1975, you told a reporter, ‘I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather.

An indictment will leave McCabe with no excuse for not carrying out his threat to bring them all down with him.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg criticized some gun owners on Friday, suggesting it was sad that their “sense of manhood” depended on owning a gun. In an interview with TMZ Live on Friday, Buttigieg was asked about the Twitter feud between former Congressman Beto O’Rourke and Texas Republican Representative Briscoe Cain. After O’Rourke told gun owners that “Hell, yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15″ during the Democrat debate on Thursday, Cain dared Beto O’Rourke on Twitter to come and take his AR-15. Buttigieg agreed with O’Rourke that Cain’s comment on Twitter was a “death threat,” and the South Bend mayor admonished Cain for failing to have a more intelligent conversation about gun issues.

But on Wednesday, Synek tells me she was confronted by one of the employees who demanded that she leave the coffee shop because of her conservative beliefs. “Marilyn Synek! I didn’t recognize you until now, but I just realized who you are, what you stand for, and the work you do. You are f------ bigoted trash, and we do not want you in our restaurant,” the irate employee shouted. It’s true that Ms. Synek is a conservative. She is employed by the Nebraska Family Alliance.

Notably, this was the first time that frontrunners Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden shared the debate stage. Warren and Biden exhibited stark differences on style, policy and vision for the Democratic Party, embodying two opposing theories of what the party should be.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs went after Sen. Mitt Romney on Friday after the Utah Republican said this week that he does not plan to endorse President Trump or others in 2020, asking, "What is wrong with this man?" Dobbs, a vocal backer of Trump, referred to the GOP senator as a "never Trumper and RINO" in a segment Friday night. He began the segment by touting Trump's electoral chances in 2020 as well as predictions that there won't be a recession next year. "Can you hear the tears falling on the marble floors under those terrible, terrible anti-Trump-ers?" he asked, suggesting more attention should be paid to "this booming Trump economy."

When we’re faced with threats of inundation, our reaction has traditionally been to build walls. Sea-level rises, storms and floods have been held back with solid barriers, seawalls and dykes. We have used walls to keep out people, too: the fact that this has failed throughout the ages has not stopped its recent revival in the United States. The climate crisis threatens global sea-level rises of well over half a metre if we fail to act, while tidal storm surges will reach many times that height. Fiercer and more frequent hurricanes will batter us, and millions of people who live in areas where crops have failed

To date, five congressmen from Texas have resigned instead of seeking re-election in 2020. Their resignations signal two things from GOP leadership. The first is the realization that Texas is now lost. The second is that this loss is due entirely to the changing demographics resulting from legal and illegal immigration. The five congressmen that have resigned are Bill Flores (17th), Will Hurd (23rd), Pete Olson (22nd), Kenny Marchant (24th), and Mike Conaway (11th). Of these five, Congressman Conaway is unique in that his district will likely remain red for some time. He has not faced an opponent in numerous election cycles.
