    LA Times via MSN ^ | 7/7/20 | Mark Z, Barabak
    Immanuel Jarvis has spent most of his life in sales. Cellphones. Life insurance. Real estate. He comes at it naturally, with a warm smile, clever wit and outgoing personality. He's hard not to like. And yet Jarvis gets taunting emails, nasty phones calls, dirty looks. He recalls people standing so close he felt their hot breath on his face as they told him, "If I was your mother, I'd be ashamed of you for who you are." Jarvis is a Republican. He is Black. And he's a staunch supporter of President Trump.

    “The economic devastation wrought by the pandemic could ultimately kill more people than the virus itself,” The Los Angeles Times (“The Times”) admitted in a shockingly anti-liberal media narrative story published May 11. The story noted that the United Nations predicted that “a global recession will reverse a three-decade trend in rising living standards and plunge as many as 420 million people into extreme poverty, defined as earning less than $2 a day.”
  • LAPD investigates whether spike in officer sick calls over July 4th weekend was an orchestrated protest

    KTLA ^ | 07/07/2020
    An unsigned letter circulated among the Los Angeles Police Department rank and file last week, encouraging officers to call in sick to protect their own interests. It had been been a month of upheaval for police, with unprecedented protests over police killings of Black people and the Los Angeles City Council agreeing to cut the LAPD’s budget by $150 million amid calls for sweeping reforms. LAPD commanders are investigating whether an unusual spike in officers calling in sick over the July 4 weekend was the result of an orchestrated protest or labor action, which would be illegal. Sources in the...

  • LA Mayor Garcetti admits 'connection' between coronavirus outbreak and protests, after downplaying link

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Wednesday that public protests are likely causing the number of citywide coronavirus cases to spike, just two days after claiming there wasn’t “any conclusive evidence” showing a connection between the two. Garcetti, a Democrat, was speaking at a press conference concerning the recent Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles when he was asked if the demonstrations were contributing to the spread of COVID-19. He claimed he’d consulted with Dr. Barbara Ferrer, LA County’s director of public health, and determined the protests were in fact contributing to the spread of the virus. “I talked...

    Three weeks ago, 100,000 gathered for LA’s BLM protests. Now, for some strange reason, the LA area is seeing a surge in coronavirus cases....Despite the fact the experts now deem that the virus can no longer be contained, California Governor Gavin Newsom is pulling the COVID-trigger. He canceled fireworks and other activities enjoyed by millions of non-protesting and social-distance-practicing Californians ahead of the July 4th holiday... Los Angeles County beaches will also be closed during the holiday. However, many good people are tired of the clearly useless and political restrictions and are beginning to push back against the new rules….including...

Meanwhile, the police department in Los Angeles posted a photo of a crowded protest taking place in the city. What the mayor said: Garcetti praised the coronavirus measures the city introduced at the beginning of the pandemic and called on residents to avoid large gatherings and wear face coverings in public places or places where they cannot keep a recommended distance this July 4th because “COVID-19 has taken control.”

    Mayor Eric Garcetti said that Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers who felt demoralized by recent protests and budget cuts should take heart and “remember why they became police officers.” Garcetti was speaking after numerous reports of “record low” morale in the LAPD, after the Black Lives Matter riots led the mayor to announce $150 million in cuts to the department, which became official on Monday. Garcetti is also feuding with the local police union, which took offense last month when the mayor referred to police (in general) as “killers.” LAPD officers also learned that they would to be paid...

    Los Angeles Democrat seeks “new path of support and collaboration” with Communist Cuban regime. “Congresswoman Karen Bass, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, is undergoing vetting as a candidate to be Joe Biden’s running mate,” Bo Erickson of CBS News reported on June 24. In March, the five-term Los Angeles Democrat endorsed Biden for president, but even some Democrats were troubled by one of Bass’s previous endorsements. “The passing of the Comandante en Jefe is a great loss to the people of Cuba,” said Bass in a statement after Fidel Castro passed away on November 25, 2016.  “I hope together,...

    The WNBA needs to force Kelly Loeffler out. Loeffler is the co-owner of the Atlanta Dream. She’s also a U.S. Senator from Georgia, appointed to her seat last December. What Loeffler has said publicly is at least as bad, if not worse, than what Donald Sterling said in a recorded conversation with his mistress — and Sterling was forced to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.

    NORTH HOLLYWOOD (KABC) -- A woman is telling her side of the story after going on a tirade for being asked to wear a face mask in a Trader Joe's store in North Hollywood. She says the angry encounter started in response to a customer who harassed her because she wasn't wearing a mask. "Right away he started using obscenities at me, saying 'f you,' the c word, 'wear your f-ing mask' all of this," she says. The woman, who asked ABC7 not to use her name, says she called a Trader Joe's store in Toluca Lake and was given...

    s governments nationwide move forward with plans to shift funds away from law enforcement in the aftermath of George Floyd's police-involved death last month, Los Angeles CEO Sachi Hamai has put forward a proposed budget with recommendations to cut some $145.4 million allocated to local police. The bid, which would entail eliminating six units from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, earned a sharp rebuke from County Sheriff Alex Villanueva over the weekend. The budget cuts are targeted specifically to hurt public safety while sparing virtually every other function of county government from any reductions," Villanueva stated. "These cuts come at...

    Diners at two Los Angeles taco stands have screamed, cursed and thrown drinks on employees trying to enforce a “no mask, no service” policy, the Los Angeles Times reports. It’s become so exhausting that Hugo’s Tacos has closed down both shops to give workers a break, owners wrote in a post on Twitter. “All because of a simple question: Can we ask you to put on a mask? Can we offer you a mask?” said part-owner Bill Kohne, according to the Los Angeles Times. The company has been serving tacos for 15 years, owners wrote in the Twitter post. Incidents,...

    No matter the color of their skin, Jews are going to be labeled “white.” By the time violent rioters tore through the heavily Jewish neighborhood of Fairfax, Los Angeles on the night of Saturday May 30, 2020, it was too late. The vicious antisemitic, anti-Israel language of the M4BL and Black Lives Matter’s demands that included accusations against Israel of “apartheid” and “genocide” had been brushed aside. Black Lives Matter (BLM) delegations had traveled to the Middle East to endorse Palestinian terrorists in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria and pose for photo ops with the Palestinian flag. Statements from delegation leaders...

    The top federal judge in Los Angeles is stepping down from that position after he apologized for saying that the court’s top administrative official, who is a (b)lack woman, was “street-smart.” US District Judge Cormac J. Carney said he will no longer serve as chief district judge just less than a month after he began a four-year term, the Los Angeles Times reported. He will remain a federal judge for the Central District of California, which is the nation’s largest federal court jurisdiction. Carney was appointed to the lifetime post in 2003 by then-President George W. Bush. Carney emailed court...

    Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell joins "Life, Liberty & Levin" on Sunday night where he addresses his issues with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, saying the organization's motivation is money and calling them "profiteers." "This is why Black Lives Matter is basically, in my opinion, the Al Sharpton of the 21st century. They're profiteers. They are profiting on trying to give a narrative, a false narrative that is white racist cops, deaths destroying the black community," Terrell told host Mark Levin. "You point out Chicago. No [BLM] presence walking through the neighborhood protesting to stop black-on-black crime. Al Sharpton...

The footage was taken by a woman who wishes to remain anonymous but identified herself as a city employee for the Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation. Eyewitness News spoke to...the man in the video, who doesn't believe his behavior is out of line and alluded to his skepticism with warnings from top health officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci. "Everything Fauci has said, has not been true, it's not even been close to true," said Weil. "People are not asking...

    What is it about radical leftists and their love affair with murderous thugs like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez? Is it that they’re virulently anti-American or is it a secret admiration for murdering their political opponents? Rep. Karen Bass is a non-descript, non-entity in the House, not known for pushing any important legislation. But Joe Biden has recently put her in the limelight by apparently considering her for the second spot on the Democratic ticket. Her qualifications include the fact that she’s a woman and she’s black. That should be enough these days to put her close to the top...
