LOS ANGELES—World-renowned Venice Beach has long been a place where visitors, residents, and business owners commingled with artists, musicians, and entertainers from all over the country. Over 10 million tourists visit the beach’s famous boardwalk each year, drawn in by the ocean view and the unconventional lifestyle of the city’s eccentric community. But the famed destination no longer circulates in headlines for its wacky tourist attractions or local eateries. Instead, the beach town has become known worldwide for its flourishing homeless encampments, burgeoning filth, skyrocketing crime rate, and increasingly violent transients. As city officials dawdle, the beachside town is falling to ruin, residents say, overwhelmed by the homeless that

The same mentality that says, "First we gotta house these people and then we'll deal with their problems" is the same mentality that secretly transports illegal aliens all over the country: Outta sight - Outta mind. As long as the politicians keep collecting a paycheck and other benefits - without any responsibility to their constituents - this will go on. Open YOUR house, expose YOUR business, Clowncil Member Bonin -- to show how concerned you really are!

The democrats ruin everything they have power to control. I look at cities I got to experience when they were the best in the world, Chicago, New York and Baltimore in the 50’s, Detroit in the 60’s, San Francisco in the late 70’s, and 80’s and Venice Beach about 15-20 years ago (a very good friend lived in Marina Del Rey; about 5 blocks away). Today every one of them are dumps and an American embarrassment.

“Like Hell Went to Hell”, coming to a liberal, progressive, democrat run city/neighborhood/school/ border/ near you. First photo says it all. Two female millennials, casually strolling by an encampment, starbucks in hand. County Sheriff is tired of politicians, tired of people in the city doing nothing. While activists quickly criticized his announcement to clean up the trashed beachfront property on social media. “Why is this @LASDHQ dressed like this to do outreach? Why do they have guns?” the People’s City Council asked. Residents blame lack of enforcement on, wait for it, covid. With all the mirrors in California, one would think they’d start looking into them for answers. Can’t blame this on stolen elections, they voted for this. And now these voters are jumping this sunken ship to infest healthy states. California license plates have a new meaning.

Benjamin Netanyahu Warns Iran,

Outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ripped his likely replacement, Naftali Bennett, in a speech to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, on Sunday afternoon, prior to the vote to confirm the new Israeli government. “Bennett always does the opposite of what he says and what he promises,” Netanyahu said, mocking his rival’s prior statements about opposing the Iran nuclear deal. Netanyahu had begun by noting that he and his party, the Likud, had won more votes than any other party in the Knesset. He recounted his long history of public service, including his role in hostage rescues as a member of Israel’s special forces; his diplomatic service in the U.S.; a

A past link to an activity described as eco-terrorism should disqualify President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management, according to a Republican senator. Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming responded critically to nominee Tracy Stone-Manning’s role in sending a threatening letter on behalf of an environmentalist group that committed tree spiking crimes in 1989. “Tracy Stone-Manning collaborated with eco-terrorists,” Barrasso said, according to the Daily Caller. “She worked with extreme environmental activists who spiked trees, threatening the lives and livelihoods of loggers.”

In his book Value(s): Building a Better World for All, Mark Carney, former governor both of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England, claims that western society is morally rotten, and that it has been corrupted by capitalism, which has brought about a “climate emergency” that threatens life on earth. This, he claims, requires rigid controls on personal freedom, industry and corporate funding. Carney’s views are important because he is UN Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance. He is also an adviser both to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the next big climate conference in Glasgow, and to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In March, Joe Biden announced that Kamala Harris was going "to lead our efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle" to stem illegal "migration to our southern border". Why? According to Biden, "she’s the most qualified person to do it." This confused everyone including the White House, Kamala Harris, and even the media which spent the next few months clarifying exactly what her job was and how she was going to do it. Anonymous officials told CNN that afterward, "Harris' aides appeared to 'panic'". At their joint press conference, Kamala Harris dubiously claimed that "we can chew gum and walk at the same time". While Texas officials demanded that she visit the border, Kamala

When it comes to terrorism, if an individual criticizes groups that support or are linked to terror, he/she will be labeled by those groups an “Islamophobe.” While the term is loosely defined as someone hateful of Muslims, more often than not it is used as a malicious way to silence critics. Today, however, it seems that, even if you are critical of the terrorist groups themselves, you will be branded with “Islamophobia.” That is what Florida State Representative Randy Fine has discovered, as he is being attacked by Islamist groups

President Donald Trump warned you. In the name of equity and inclusion, the Biden administration is making moves that target the suburbs with federal regulation. It will pull zoning decisions away from city councils through the federal government’s typical mechanism to impose its will where it has no business intruding in our layered federalist system. The Federalist: "As part of his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, the Biden administration is pushing local governments to allow apartment buildings in neighborhoods that are restricted to single-family homes. The administration claims it’s a way to ease a national affordable housing shortage and combat racial injustice in the housing market.

GALVESTON, TX – The Biden administration imported a rare cargo of 1.033 million barrels of Iranian crude in March despite sanctions on Iran’s energy sector, data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed. The cargo is only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991. [Tweet] In 2020, the Trump administration imposed sweeping economic sanctions against Iran’s oil sector as tensions between Washington and Tehran continued to escalate in the days leading up to the American presidential election. Sanctions were placed on Iran’s Ministry of Petroleum, the National Iranian Oil Company, and its oil-tanker subsidiary for providing financial support to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps,

The Girl Scouts have an unusual problem this year: 15 million boxes of unsold cookies. The 109-year-old organization says the coronavirus — not thinner demand for Thin Mints — is the main culprit. As the pandemic wore into the spring selling season, many troops nixed their traditional cookie booths for safety reasons. "This is unfortunate, but given this is a girl-driven program and the majority of cookies are sold in-person, it was to be expected," said Kelly Parisi, a spokeswoman for Girl Scouts of the USA.

One person was killed and another injured Sunday night after being struck by a car in the Uptown area of Minneapolis during a protest, near the site where Winston Smith was shot by sheriff’s deputies earlier this month. A witness said the eastbound SUV was moving at a high rate of speed as it approached just before midnight, and that the driver appeared to accelerate as they got closer to demonstrators who had blocked off Lake Street near Girard Avenue. The driver struck a vehicle parked across one of the traffic lanes on Lake Street, apparently positioned to protect the crowd. That second vehicle then hit people.

Kamala Harris' problem isn't race or gender though those are the two excuses that she and her supporters have brought out to explain everything from her humiliating failure in the primaries to her humiliating failure on the world stage during her big international trip. But aside from her self-inflicted problems, and there are many of those, Kamala has no constituency. Joe Biden has black voters, but he picked Kamala as a sop to the party's minority base even though she wasn't able to woo black voters away from him during the primary. Strategically that's exactly why he picked her.

Tent-lined streets with belongings scattered everywhere. Infected wounds with bugs living inside. A man who hasn't showered in over a decade. An 80-year-old woman who can't feed herself. People who ride the metro rail lines because the trains are a safer place to sleep. California's homeless problem has been out of control for decades. Then came COVID-19. The result has been a deadly combination of medical crisis, human hopelessness and bureaucratic red tape as the state, reeling from the virus' impacts, tries to rebound with a plan for the 160,000 homeless people. That number eclipses any other state – and accounts
