  • Tempers Flare As Huntington Park Appoints Undocumented Immigrants To City Commissions

    CBS Los Angeles ^ | 4 AUG 2015
    HUNTINGTON PARK (CBSLA.com) — Huntington Park is making history and not everyone is happy about it. Councilman Jhonny Pineda announced at Monday night’s city council meeting the appointment of two undocumented immigrants as commissioners, CBS2/KCAL9’s Kara Finnstrom reports. “You are out of order!” one woman in the crowd yelled at the councilmembers during the meeting. Some critics say Pineda, who joined the council in March, specifically picked Medina and Zatarain because they worked on his campaign. Others say they don’t believe undocumented immigrants should serve the government this way.

    It was suppose to be Jeb Bush's time. Following his father and brother into the White House, the younger Bush was ready to make it a family trifecta. It appears as if those plans might not come to fruition. Trump not only leads with men, 32 percent, he also is in the lead with conservative female voters. Twenty percent of female Republicans side with Trump, eight points higher than Walker who ranked in second place with the female vote.

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said the the nine GOP presidential candidates who will take the debate stage Thursday with frontrunner Donald Trump will be wise not to take him on. "Donald Trump is going to win any confrontation," Dershowitz said Tuesday on "CNN Tonight." "He's a populist," Dershowitz said of Trump. "He doesn't have to worry about what he says." Republican voters love the billionaire real estate developer because he doesn't have speechwriters, and anyone who takes him on is going to lose, Dershowitz said.

    Attention Republican presidential candidates prepping for Thursday's first debate. Do you want to beat Donald Trump? I mean seriously, are you in this to win or just to raise your speaking fees, sell more books and possibly get a deal to be a commentator on a cable news network? For those who truly want to beat Trump, I have the weapon that may just do the trick: comedy. But I'm not talking the type of "comedy" we have recently seen in your desperate efforts to attract media attention. The likes of Rand Paul's video in which he takes a chainsaw...

    The first Republican debate took place Monday night at Saint Anslems College in New Hampshire. Notably absent were Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee, the Arkansas preacher turned one term governor, Fox talk show host and radical right wing religious zealot, who if elected, would make Sharia law seem civil. His positions on social issues are downright frightening. The alleged debate wasn’t really a debate at all. It was interviews where each candidate had 3 minutes to make a pitch to the audience. The first real debate takes place tomorrow evening in Ohio. Let's talk about the main attraction at this...

In a Public Policy Polling survey, Trump leads with 34% of Hispanic voters, surpassing Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. What makes this poll even more delicious, is that it had to be reported on Univision: ROGELIO MORA TAGLE, CORRESPONDENT: And it’s that upon launching his campaign, Trump said among other things that the people who emigrate from Mexico bring to the United States drugs, crime and are rapists. Those comments, for 55% of those polled, are insulting and racist, and out...

    For some wealthy donors, it doesn’t matter who takes the White House in 2016—as long as the president’s name is Clinton or Bush. More than 60 ultra-rich Americans have contributed to both Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton’s federal campaigns, according to an analysis of Federal Election Commission data by Vocativ and The Daily Beast. Seventeen of those contributors have gone one step further and opened their wallets to fund both Bush and Clinton’s 2016 ambitions. After all, why support just Hillary Clinton or just Jeb Bush when you can hedge your bets and donate to both? This seems to be...

    One thing about Donald Trump, you don’t have to guess what he’s really thinking … if you can call it that. Republican-for-now presidential candidate Trump has set himself apart – and ahead in the polls – from the crowded field of GOP candidates with his candid tell-it-like-he-sees-it pronouncements, particularly regarding the hot-button issue of immigration – certainly a topic presidential contenders should address. There are an estimated more than 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. and more than 451,000 deportation cases in U.S. immigration courts. After calling some Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, Trump has now proclaimed that all...

    The city will kick in half a million dollars to open and expand job centers for day laborers, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said Monday. The centers serve as hiring halls for mostly immigrant laborers who have traditionally gathered on street corners waiting for work, instead providing a safe spot where contractors can show up to hire people for construction, roofing, and other jobs. The $500,000 grant will go towards expanding an existing center in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, and opening new ones in Queens and Staten Island.

Krauthammer said of Trump’s debate strategy, “I would think from his point of view, when you have the kind of lead he does, and the others have no particular incentive to attack you, because it might hurt the two of you, and leave the rest of the field unmolested, you’ve got a pretty good shot at just playing statesman and being quiet.

Discussing his proposed immigration policy, Osbourne blurted out, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?” Immediately afterward, an unsettled feeling came over the panel and it appeared as though Osbourne realized she had just put her foot in her mouth. Osbourne later told Page Six, “I want to start by saying I always take responsibility for my...

In a letter to Secy of State John Kerry, Sen.

    “Donald Trump is already doomed: Why his campaign is a bigger disaster than his hair,” screamed the headline of a July 6 Salon headline. The TV billionaire has only just announced his candidacy--yet he's already made enough mistakes to last a lifetime. In fact, Trump was not doomed at all. On June 10 of this year, a week before Trump announced his candidacy, I explained why. “The Republican nominee for president,” I wrote, “will be that candidate who best learns that there is no future in apologizing.” When I wrote this, I had no idea Trump was planning to run...

"Because it's predictable. It's stale…. I think at some point, Trump's gonna say how stupid he thinks this is and how unproductive he thinks this is and how basically what a waste of time." Limbaugh concedes the high-flying real estate billionaire probably won't use those words, "because he's there." "But he'll talk about how it's not productive toward choosing a candidate, that it just muddies the waters, and...

    I can’t count how many friends and strangers have stopped me on the street with a variation on the question: When is Donald Trump going to drop out of the race for President? I inevitably answer that I don’t have the slightest idea — and neither does anybody else — but we should assume that, like any candidate, he’ll try to remain in the race until the outcome becomes obvious. When that might happen is anybody’s guess, although a fair number of pundits and journalists have already concluded, prematurely in my view, that the end of Trump’s political career is...

The two men recently spoke for the first time since Trump entered the presidential race back in June, according to people with direct knowledge of the call. It was just a phone conversation, not an in-person meeting, but it was cordial and forward-looking, the people said. It took place about a week ago. Why does it matter? Because Trump has become the Republican presidential front-runner and a political force to be reckoned with, despite eye-rolling...

    Donald Trump (24 percent) leads a fractured Republican field in the race for the GOP nomination in the latest national CBS News Poll. Behind him are Jeb Bush (13 percent) and Scott Walker (10 percent). Trump leads among a wide array of Republican primary voters. He appears to have tapped into public anger toward Washington: he holds a large lead among Republican primary voters who say they are angry. And 79 percent think Trump says what he believes, rather than what people want to hear, far higher than the other candidates tested. Donald Trump: I pay as little as possible...

His theory is that while "everybody is trying to be the kinder, gentler, you know, the compassionate conservative," that's not what the "average American" actually wants. He broke it down further, using a dog analogy. "The average American," Starnes explained, "they don't want one of those metrosexual purse dogs, they want a pit bull in the White House." Donald Trump, presumably, is the pit bull. A candidate such as Jeb Bush,...

    With Hillary Clinton’s multiple misdeeds coming to light and causing her political problems, reflected in her declining support in the polls, both she and the Democratic party have reason to be concerned. But both of them may yet be rescued by “The Donald,” who can turn out to be their Trump card. Donald Trump has virtually no chance of becoming even the Republican party’s candidate in 2016, much less being elected President of the United States. The reason is not hard to understand: Republican voters simply do not trust him, as the polls show. Nor is there any reason why...

    Some political insiders have dismissed the upcoming debate for second-tier Republican presidential candidates as the "kids' table" debate. But for the low-ranking hopefuls who take part, the kids' debate might turn out to be as big an opportunity to move ahead as the first-tier faceoff scheduled for later on Thursday. For five reasons: 1) Donald Trump won't be involved. The top ten debate is in grave danger of becoming the Trump show. Even top GOP candidates' performances will be evaluated relative to Trump, making it harder for them to make a good impression on their own. 2) The second-tier debate...

Guess which party the administration is siding with? The lawsuit was filed over a series of bombings and shootings in or around Jerusalem that killed dozens of U.S. citizens during the second Palestinian intifada a decade ago. The case was delayed for years while Palestinian lawyers tried to challenge the American court’s jurisdiction, but last February the families won a $218.5 million judgment after a seven-week trial in a Manhattan federal court.

    Unless the US Congress votes in opposition, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) deal with Iran with go through. What really happened and why did it happen the way it did? What happened is gradually becoming clear. It is revealed daily just how horrendous the deal really is. On every point — enrichment, centrifuges, stocks of fissile material, inspections, sanctions on the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps members and businesses, "snapback," etc. — the Obama administration caved completely. Concessions on ballistic missiles and arms sales were thrown in at the last minute; the administration lied about it all, while Iran...
  • When it comes to Islam, Sunni or Shia, Obama Chooses the Terrorists

    Summary: Like his support for the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood terrorists across the region, the facts of the Iran deal with Shiite terror regime in Tehran point to a deliberate plan of allying the United States with the worst of Islamic terrorists. Obama’s nuclear “deal” with Iran has been compared to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement of Hitler. For those less familiar with the history of the Second World War, Chamberlain’s Munich deal was a betrayal of Czechoslovakia. Students of World War II know, however, that Chamberlain ultimately led the early British war effort against the Nazis. Chamberlain may have...

    An Iranian official recently stated that no International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) personnel will be permitted to enter military or missile sites. Another stated that "no country is permitted to know the details of future inspections conducted by the IAEA." Their statements are probably consistent. There may well be other secret deals we don't know about and perhaps never will. Meanwhile, Iran is preparing to test long range ballistic missiles "to prove that the missile ban was invalid." It's not MY fault. I. No IAEA inspections of the sites that matter mostIn an interview on Al Jazeera TV last week Ali Akbar Velayati, Security Adviser to...

    Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said the nuclear inspection organization is barred from revealing to the United States any details of deals it has inked with Tehran to inspect its contested nuclear program going forward, according to regional reports. Recent disclosures by Iran indicate that the recently inked nuclear accord includes a series of side deals on critical inspections regimes that are neither public nor subject to review by the United States. Reza Najafi, Iran’s ambassador and permanent envoy to the IAEA, stated over the weekend that no country is permitted to know the details of...

    Scattered around the U.S. Capitol complex are a series of Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facilities, or SCIFs, which are typically used to hold Top Secret information. But today in these deeply secure settings are a series of unclassified documents—items dealing with the Iran nuclear deal that are not secret, but that the Obama administration is nevertheless blocking the public from reading. The Obama administration delivered 18 documents to Congress on July 19, in accordance with legislation requiring a congressional review of the nuclear deal. Only one of these documents is classified, while the remaining 17 are unclassified. Yet many of these...

    Kelly Osbourne stuck her foot firmly in her mouth on Tuesday’s episode of “The View” when she made an unfortunate remark during a discussion on Donald Trump’s favorability among Latino voters. “If you kick every Latino out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?” Osbourne said. Her statement was met with an awkward groan from Raven-Symone before co-host Rosie Perez said, “Latinos are not the only people doing that.” Osbourne quickly back-pedaled, saying “I would never mean it like that. I’m not part of this argument.”

    Liberal celebrity Kelly Osbourne inserted foot in mouth on The View today. Her attack on Donald Trump sort of backfired when she exposed herself as a heartless racist. TMZ reported: Kelly Osbourne stepped into it on “The View” Tuesday, challenging Donald Trump’s statement about Mexicans and asking if he has his way … who will clean his toilet. Osbourne quipped, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”

    The attorney general is slated to announce today settlements with five retailers, including some industry giants, for selling toy guns that don’t fit state appearance requirements. Walmart, which sold 149 illegal toy guns throughout the state, including 20 in New York City, also agreed to pay a $225,000 penalty. Eric Schneiderman says Walmart, Amazon, Kmart, Sears, and online retailer ACTA agreed to the settlement. Rice was shot and killed by patrol officers who said they thought the boy’s toy gun, which did not have the brightly colored markings indicating it was a toy, was real. All told, the attorney general...

    New York is forcing Walmart, Amazon, and other retailers to pay over $300,000 for the crime of selling toy guns. The settlement stems from an investigation by the state’s attorney general office, which sent cease and desist letters to the retailers in December for breaking its strict law against children’s toys. “State law prohibits the sale of imitation guns in realistic colors such as black, blue, silver, or aluminum, unless it has a non-removable one-inch-wide orange stripe running down both sides of the barrel and the front end of the barrel,” according to the attorney general office. All fake toy...
