    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...

    LOS ANGELES - FOX 11 witnessed a looter taken down by LAPD Sunday afternoon at the New Balance store at Wilshire and 26th. A group of looters broke into the store and began to flee, and as they got into a car, one of them wasn't fast enough and was left behind by his group. Police were able to catch him, and he was taken into custody. FOX 11's Bill Melugin talked to him, and he was very candid about his motive. He said point-blank he was "out to get some money".

    Washington Post (democracy dies with democrats) ^ | 6/01/20 | Greg Sargent, Paul Waldman
    As protests against police brutality spread across the country, President Trump looked impotent, unable to offer anything reassuring and tweeting angrily from inside a White House under siege. But Trump has hit on a solution: designate “antifa” a terrorist organization, to make it look as if the protests have been taken over by radical terrorists, and to create the impression that he’s getting fearsomely tough in response. In an interview with us, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told us that the designation itself, which has no legal basis, appears to be a “characteristically political act." Schiff, the chair of the House...

  • Roberts embraces role as Supreme Court swing justice, with latest church ruling

    Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts continues to position himself as the high court’s swing vote -- siding with both his conservative and liberal colleagues in close decisions -- including most recently in cases related to the coronavirus lockdowns. The latest instance of this came days ago when the court rejected an emergency appeal by a California church that challenged state limits on attendance at religious services.

    "With the powers vested in me by the liberal media, I am pleased this morning to declare Tou Thao a white man." Joe Scarborough might as well have said that on today's Morning Joe. Expressing his outrage that the police officers who, in addition to Derek Chauvin, were on the scene when George Floyd died, have not been arrested, Scarborough said: "Three white men have not been charged for standing there and watching as life drained from a man in a slow-motion murder."

    Diversity is being duly celebrated in the Los Angeles area these days, as neighbors of the King Fahad Mosque in Culver City are now treated to what Barack Obama called the most beautiful sound in the world, the Islamic call to prayer, blared over loudspeakers five times a day, beginning at 4:30AM. And lo and behold, some Culver City residents have had the temerity, the audacity, the unrestrained “Islamophobia,” to complain about the noise. As Greta Thunberg might say, How dare they? Don’t they know they live in California, and that California is the most woke of states? It’s...
