    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she wants answers from President Trump about the deployment of troops and unidentified law enforcement officers in Washington DC patrolling peaceful protesters. Pelosi raised the alarm on the presence of soldiers, national guard troops, FBI, National Park Service and other unidentified federal officers making a show of force around the nation's capital amidst the demonstrations for racial justice in the wake of George Floyd's death. "What is the mission," Pelosi said at a press conference at the Capitol Thursday. "Who's in charge? What is the chain of command? We expect an answer."

    Three years ago, the inauguration of the forty-fifth president of the United States was commemorated by a concert featuring Lee Greenwood and Jon Voight, a parade, three official inaugural balls, massive women’s marches, the writing of a fishy e-mail to herself by outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and the January 17 publication of David Horowitz’s Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America. The book, a comprehensive account and vigorous vindication of Trump’s platform, became a New York Times bestseller. Now, with the 2020 elections approaching, Horowitz has published a follow-up book entitled Blitz: Trump Will Smash the Left...

    California Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener tweeted Thursday that he would not accept any contributions to his reelection campaign from law enforcement unions and would donate those he's gotten so far to nonprofits "serving at-risk youth of color" -- but his opponent, also a Democrat, replied that his commitment was not enough and included "loopholes." Wiener told Fox News that he is donating $20,000 received from six separate law enforcement union organizations. The groups include the California Association of Highway Patrolmen, Peace Officers Research Association of California PAC, California Correctional Peace Officers Association PAC, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association, Association...

    Wednesday on NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) declared President Donald Trump spoke “words of a dictator.” Fallon asked, “What are your thoughts in the administration currently, and how they’ve been dealing with this on top of the pandemic?” Harris said, “I mean, Jimmy, we’ve got a president of the United States, or at least somebody who occupies that position, who doesn’t understand the job and isn’t capable of performing the job. Most recently, you know, frankly, the words that he speaks are the words not of a president. They’re the words of a dictator.”

    A California man captured on camera pointing a loaded AR-15 rifle at a group of advancing protesters has been arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Jacob Daniel Bracken, 38, of Rancho Cucamonga, faces two counts of assault with a deadly weapon related to the incident in Upland on Monday, the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office said. Even though Bracken did not fire the rifle and no one was injured, Upland Police Chief Darren Goodman explained the assault charge: “You point the weapon at someone with the intent to intimidate and the weapon being loaded itself.”

    LOS ANGELES— Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Wednesday that he tasked the city to “identify $250 million in cuts” to invest more money into the black community, communities of color, women and “people who have been left behind." The Los Angeles Times reported that the city will try and cut between $100 million to $150 million from its police budget alone. Garcetti said it is incumbent on the city to “step up and say, ‘What can we sacrifice?’” The mayor said that the city will not increase its police budget of $1.8 billion. Deadline reported that Garcetti said that...

    San Leandro Chrysler Dodge is open for business after one of the largest auto theft sprees in memory. "Pisses you off man. You walk in it's like a war zone," said dealership owner Carlos Hidalgo. Cell phone video reveals some of what happened Sunday night at the dealership on Marina Boulevard. It shows new dodge cars and trucks screeching out of the lot and onto the street. By the time it was over 74 vehicles were gone. Hidalgo said as a precaution against thefts he had parked cars at all the lot exits. It didn't matter. "They started ramming, ramming...

    At 10:35 p.m. Sunday, around two dozen Sacramento police officers in body armor and helmets stood near 15th and J street, awaiting orders. A half-mile away, a group of protesters was dispersing after a two-hour showdown at the Capitol that included officers shooting tear gas and rubber bullets into the crowd. For a moment, the feeling seemed to be one of ease. But then the officers on 15th Street departed without explanation, exposing a swath of midtown to small groups of vandals who roamed the streets, leaving a path of shattered windows, spilled booze and anxiety in their wake.

    Thousands of people across the US have flooded the streets to protest police violence in the wake of George Floyd’s death. But as protesters confront police brutality, some are concerned that some protesters are being needlessly aggressive. In several videos circulating on social media, protesters deface, destroy property, or steal things from shop owners. President Donald Trump has blamed some of the protests on Antifa, an umbrella term for anti-fascists, and has sought to designate it as a domestic terrorist group. Attorney General William Barr has also blamed Antifa and “groups of outside radicals and agitators” for “riots” at the...

    As protests over George Floyd’s death spread across the country, officials have blamed the violent nature of some demonstrations on members of a controversial group known as Antifa. President Donald Trump on Sunday said the United States would designate Antifa a terrorist organization, and he received huge support for his intentions! But it seems that American patriots had enough of having their stores burned and their cities destroyed. Antifa tried to riot in Yucaipa, California but their actions were not so well received. The patriotic citizens decide to defend themself and this could be a lesson for every violent rioter...

    Police in Northern California are searching for suspects after rioters reportedly stole more than 70 luxury cars from a dealership near San Francisco Sunday night. San Leandro Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership owner Carlos Hidalgo said although he blocked the exits with cars as a precaution, the thieves “started ramming, ramming until they could get out. They took out chains and fence posts. It was a very malicious act,” FOX 2 in Oakland reported. “You walk in it's like a war zone," Hidalgo said of the aftermath. “It’s not a cause for anybody. This is just bad thieves. It’s horrible. This...

    A live TV broadcast showed a group of suspected looters in Los Angeles confront business owners bearing long guns for not allowing them to break in to stores. “There’s a standoff here arguing about why they can’t break into the place,” a Fox 11 TV reporter said during a live broadcast Sunday evening. Soon after, both the alleged looters and the people in front of the store attempted to flag down police. When police arrived, confusion broke out and officers began to arrest everyone.

    A reserved Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday called on President Trump to tone down his combative approach to the national protests for racial justice that have followed the death of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis last week. Clutching a Bible in the Capitol, Pelosi urged Trump to reach across the divides of race, party, region and religion to help the country heal instead. "We would hope that the president of the United States would follow the lead of so many other presidents before him to be a healer-in-chief, and not a fanner of the flame," she said.

    Hollywood comedian Leslie Jones says she hopes young people rioting across the U.S. can parlay their anger into something that will “burn down this f—ing Constitution.” The “Ghostbusters” reboot star told her 1 million Twitter followers over the weekend that history is repeating itself regarding riots in response to George Floyd’s death under the knee of former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin. Ms. Jones recounted her days causing destruction during the 1992 Los Angeles riots before saying, “Seriously, 30 years from now, the same riot that I was in with my sledgehammer is the same riot that y’all in.”

    LOS ANGELES, CA—Religious people in Southern California have found a bold, creative solution for in-person meetings in spite of the continuing lockdown. This past weekend, several area churches attended church services disguised as righteously indignant rioters. "We already have the righteous indignation thing down," said one church elder. "Now, we've simply added black balaclavas, hoodies, Guy Fawkes masks, and baseball bats! We found that when we do this, we can meet in large groups without much interference from the local authorities. It's been a delightful experience." Leaders from Spirit-River In The City Church in LA County are reporting a successful...

    After three nights of violence, Sacramento city leaders imposed a curfew and called in the California National Guard on Monday. It was an unfortunate but necessary step to prevent further violence and destruction. Mayor Darrell Steinberg hesitated to take such drastic measures. He said law enforcement officials feared that a curfew might only escalate things. But the vandals and thieves who tore up Sacramento this weekend forced their hands. Over the weekend, people smashed windows, set fires and stole merchandise. They assaulted and robbed two Sacramento Bee journalists. They did everything in their power to overshadow the real reason for...

    USC has ended its relationship with a booster after she sent a series of tweets Sunday night promoting gun violence. In a statement on Monday afternoon, Trojans athletic director Mike Bohn said that he was made aware of "abhorrent and blatantly racist tweets from an individual who identified as a USC Football Booster." That booster, Marla Brown, said multiple times on her now-deleted Twitter account that people protesting police brutality and George Floyd's murder in Los Angeles and Washington D.C. should be shot. On her Twitter bio, Brown identified as a LAPD union attorney. She clarified later that she had...
