  • Poor neighborhoods left out as Inglewood soundproofed homes against LAX noise [Maxine Waters' Dist]

    Inglewood spent millions of dollars in public funds to soundproof middle-class areas of the city while bypassing one of the poorest neighborhoods where the roar from the Los Angeles International Airport flight path is loudest, according to a Times data analysis. Over the last several decades, the Federal Aviation Administration and Los Angeles World Airports have given the city nearly $400 million to purchase and demolish hundreds of homes around the flight path and soundproof thousands of others. A Times review of local and federal records shows Inglewood spent the money for soundproofing disproportionately in middle-class — and primarily single-family...

    Rep. Maxine Waters is not happy with her Democratic Party peers. The California congresswoman who called for Americans to “scream” in the streets for President Trump to be impeached told supporters Thursday that she’s tired of colleagues who can only manage to “whisper.” “Unfortunately, many Members of Congress whisper the President should be impeached but have not supported my call for impeachment,” she tweeted. “Only a few of us dare to continue to urge both Dems and Repubs to impeach this dangerous president. I will keep trying. The public needs to demand!” Ms. Waters‘ remarks come in the wake of...

    Rep. Maxine Waters launched a scathing attack on President Trump, calling him “unworthy” and saying that “God will never forgive” him. Waters unloaded on the president in eight tweets late Monday night, starting with a criticism of his meeting with Kim Jong Un last week. “Lying Trump came away from fake summit with terrorist & killer Kim Jong-un w/ nothing because Kim never intended to offer anything. Don the con man got conned! Hey number 45, are you still in love w/ Kim?” the California Democrat wrote. “Lying Trump said he believes killer Kim Jong Un, that he didn't know...

    An Emirati sheikh has built an incredible ten-wheeled vehicle made from a combination of a military truck and a Jeep in the UAE. Dubbed 'Dhabiyan', the motor is a hybrid of an Oshkosh M1075 military truck and a Jeep Wrangler. The vehicle is 35ft long, 8ft wide and has a height of 10ft, and weighs an incredible 24 tonnes. It features a huge 15.2-litre six-cylinder 600hp Caterpillar engine, which originally powered the military truck it was created from.

I know his sisters, I know his mom, and I called already to Jazz, one of the sisters, to talk to her about what’s happening, about what’s going on... I’m pleased that he’s doing okay. But we have to understand this is happening for a reason.

    Judicial Watch ^ | November 20, 2018
    Considering her record and documented history of poor ethical and moral fitness, it’s outrageous that Maxine Waters is up for chair of the ultra-powerful House Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over the country’s banking system, economy, housing, and insurance. With Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives, come January the 14-term California congresswoman is expected to head the committee, which also has jurisdiction over monetary policy, international finance, and efforts to combat terrorist financing. Throughout her storied political career, Waters has been embroiled in numerous controversies, including abusing her power to enrich family members, getting a communist dictator...

    **SNIP** He noted that Waters was the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation in 2010 over a meeting she arranged between the Treasury Department and representatives of OneUnited bank, where her husband was a notable shareholder. OneUnited went on to obtain $12 million in federal bailout funding. The ethics charges against Waters were dropped in 2012. "By the time Maxine Waters scheduled the meeting with the Treasury secretary, her husband owned approximately $350,000 in OneUnited stock, all of which would have likely gone down the drain without the bailout money she helped secure," Hilton said. "How lovely for Maxine...
  • Maxine Waters: Violent Protests ‘Make America Better’, Republicans Should ‘Feel Uncomfortable’

    Over the weekend, California Representative Maxine Waters once again defended her public statements encouraging her supporters to harass and assault their political opponents in mobs. During a Saturday appearance on the “Roland Martin Unfiltered” web show, Waters insisted that such protests “make America better” because protestors are fighting for “justice and equality for everybody.” Rather than deny that she has been encouraging violent behavior against Republicans, Waters justified such tactics by claiming that the very nature of protests is to make their targets “feel uncomfortable”: “I told someone the other day who is trying to say that we are violent...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) accused President Donald Trump of “placing a target” on her back. Waters said, “It is obvious that the president of the United States of America is placing a target on my back and he keeps calling my name and lying about me in order to make the target work. So I’m not intimidated by it, but I know what he’s doing. So I just continue to do what I do, to call it like it is, to speak truth to power. And I want you to know that the American people,...

    A street artist named Sabo has gone the extra height in their latest project, placing a picture of Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters' head on the body of slasher Michael Myers on a billboard promoting the new 'Halloween' movie set to release today. The artist placed the words "#Uncivil Democrats" on the billboard as well, referring to a string of events and quotes from prominent Democrats who seemed to push for civil disobedience towards GOP members. In particular, that is likely directed towards Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, and Maxine Waters. Sabo, the artist, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and clarified that...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is predicting the backlash against newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh will continue well into his tenure. Speaking to Black Hollywood Live before the 2018 Merge Summit in Los Angeles on Friday, Mrs. Waters had some words of encouragement for people who feel dejected by the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, who faced allegations of committing sexual misconduct more than 30 years ago. “Never stop,” she instructed liberals, according to a clip flagged by NTK Network on Monday. “That is what we have to do with what happened to Kavanaugh and this confirmation process. “It...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, one of the most outspoken members of the anti-Trump ‘resistance’ in Congress, is facing fresh questions about a longstanding controversy regarding how her campaign raises money and how those funds have flowed to her daughter. The California congresswoman has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle from some of her state’s biggest politicians paying to be listed on her slate mailers—sample ballots traditionally mailed out to about 200,000 voters in Los Angeles highlighting whom she supports. Since 2004, the campaign in turn reportedly has paid $750,000 to the congresswoman’s daughter, Karen Waters, or her...

    Maxine Waters is a corrupt, abusive politician who cares nothing for the truth. Two weeks ago, she encouraged her far-left crowd of admirers to harass Trump officials in public places. Harassments easily become violent. She knows that and so do the Democrats claiming she didn’t encourage violence. Even if she didn’t, what right do these people have to urge abuse of political opponents in restaurants, gas stations, the public square, especially when they are on their own time, with their families? Referencing the harassment of Sarah Sanders, Kristjen Nielsen, and others, she said: “I want to tell you, these members...
