    <p>“I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who’ve been here for a quarter of a century … [and] separate them from their families and expel them,” Gingrich said during a discussion about illegal immigration and border security. “I do believe we should control the border. I do believe we should have very severe penalties.”</p>

    Deception and illusion that Veterans could have started the fire A front-page story in yesterday’s edition is about the recent Bel-Air fire that destroyed multi-million-dollar mansions, and a homeless encampment purportedly nearby that is accused of starting it. (“A Parable of Inequality in Bel-Air”...) Since the purported homeless encampment apparently vanished in the fire, the Times went across the 405 Freeway and took a photo of a homeless Veteran encampment outside the VA’s Eisenhower gate alongside San Vicente Boulevard adjacent to Brentwood. This gives the deception and illusion that Veterans could have started the fire.

  • LAPD Probe Claim Roman Polanski Molested Girl in 1975

    Los Angeles detectives said Tuesday they are investigating a woman’s claim that Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski molested her in 1975, when she was 10 years old. But the allegations are so old that criminal charges couldn’t be brought, even if proven. Although the statute of limitations has long expired, law enforcement officials may be able to use any evidence they collect to help prosecute other cases. Authorities are now probing the case because Los Angeles detectives “will always take a report from any victim and then determine if the case is within the statute of limitations,” police spokesman Josh Rubenstein...

    Talk show legend Larry King has been accused of groping an ex-wife of singer Eddie Fisher on two separate occasions, according to a report Monday. Terry Richard told the Daily Mail on Monday that the now-84-year-old Larry King Now and Politicking host groped her in 2005 and 2006, with both alleged incidents coming during baseball awards dinners at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Richard, 63, had reportedly been working as a photographer for the local Tolucan Times when she saw King, whom she had met some months before, at the 2005 dinner. The photographer had reportedly wanted a photograph of...

    Los Angeles gets an unwarranted rap as a bad sports town, and Fox Sports isn’t helping LA fans fight that label. Fox posted a listing on the casting site projectcasting.com for “actors, models, and talent” to play Rams fans on its Sunday NFL pre-game show. With the Rams facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in a match-up of two of the league’s best teams, you wouldn’t think it’d be necessary, but alas. “We’re looking for LA’s biggest NFL fans to be part of #NFLSunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pre Game Show!” said the ad. “Come out, bring your...

    P22 is the most famous mountain lion in the world, living in Griffith Park, right in the heart of Los Angeles. He was born in the Santa Monica Mountains, and crossed two of the busiest freeways in America, the 405 and the 101, before he settled in the park. Yet P22 is now trapped, hemmed in by freeways and the urban sprawl, with little chance of ever finding a mate. Now a new documentary film will explore his plight and the development of the wildlife crossing at Liberty Canyon in Los Angeles. Angelenos and local conservationists alike are battling to...

    The nation’s homeless population increased this year for the first time since 2010, driven by a surge in the number of people living on the streets in Los Angeles and other West Coast cities. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released its annual Point in Time count Wednesday, a report that showed nearly 554,000 homeless people across the country during local tallies conducted in January. That figure is up nearly 1 percent from 2016. Of that total, 193,000 people had no access to nightly shelter and instead were staying in vehicles, tents, the streets and other places considered...

    In October, the Los Angeles Times reported that 140 claims of sexual harassment and assault have popped up against California lawmakers including “six of 26 women in the Legislature, two retired lawmakers, a Board of Equalization member and officials from the state Democratic and Republican parties.” The violations include “nonconsensual touching, inappropriate comments, and sexual innuendo.” Now, according to the Associated Press, even more allegations have been tossed onto the already massive pile, bringing the number up to 150.

    Rob looked around for something workable. A few dozen RV’s sat in the police impound lot, packed in so tight he had to slide sideways between vehicles to peer in the windows and check the undersides. “A lot of junk,” he said. “Though somebody would probably love this junk.” After all, it’s clear someone was living in each of these RV’s before it was towed. Clothes, blankets, and trinkets were scattered on the floors. “I found one with the fridge still cold, there was food in it,” Rob said. As homelessness has risen in Los Angeles, there are more and...

    The LA Times ^ | 11/26/17 | Erin Aubry Kaplan
    everal years ago, a woman who lives around the corner in Inglewood told me a story common to black people who were among the first to move into once-white cities. She and her husband bought their house in 1967. Every day that summer, she said, her next-door neighbor came out on his porch, glaring. Whenever he saw her, this white man shouted not a greeting, but a question: Why are you here? In a few months, he was gone, along with pretty much every other white family on the block. I grew up in and around Inglewood and have lived...

    If the economy is doing just fine, then why is homelessness at levels not seen “since the Great Depression” in major cities all over the country? If the U.S. economy was actually in good shape, we would expect that the number of people that are homeless would be going down or at least stabilizing. Instead, we have a growing national crisis on our hands. In fact, within the past two years “at least 10 cities or municipal regions in California, Oregon and Washington” have declared a state of emergency because the number of homeless is growing so rapidly. Things are...
