Los Angeles’ Garcetti to meet with HUD Secretary Carson to talk homelessness: report

LOS ANGELES– Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is reportedly flying to Washington, D.C., late Tuesday to meet with Ben Carson, the head of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, to discuss the homelessness, a report said.

Garcetti, a Democrat and critic of many of President Trump’s policies, has said in the past that the homeless issue is not partisan and he would be willing to meet with anyone on the subject, according to a tweet from a Fox 11 reporter.

His office did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News to learn specific topics of the meeting.

Late last year, members of the Trump administration visited the Southern California city to witness the city’s homeless encampments.

The visit by a delegation from several federal agencies came about two months after Trump called the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles, San Francisco and other big cities disgraceful and faulted the “liberal establishment” for the problem.

Garcetti issued a public invitation for  Trump to walk the streets with him to see the conditions. The mayor released a letter to Trump at the time indicating that he looked forward to working together.

Breelyn Pete, Garcetti’s chief of state and federal affairs, gave an example of how it may be difficult putting politics completely to the side during the city’s interaction with the Trump administration.  She told an event in Beverly Hills at the time that the city looked forward to explaining its homeless strategy to administration officials but added, “They’re just not thoughtful, and quite frankly not smart enough, to know what we’re doing.”

The Los Angeles Times reported earlier this month that senior Trump officials have made “quiet but significant progress toward a potential deal” with officials from the city and would provide an unknown about of federal funding and land to help alleviate homeless shelters in the city.

The Times reported that it obtained a letter from Garcetti to Carson and Trump where he thanked Carson for “the federal resources” that were offered.

FBI tells family of Kristin Smart, who vanished 23 years ago, to be prepared for news: report

Westlake Legal Group sssx FBI tells family of Kristin Smart, who vanished 23 years ago, to be prepared for news: report fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox news fnc/us fnc Edmund DeMarche article 27cbf462-4bb8-51ff-8f25-2ff0c8c14d57

The family of Kristin Smart, the California college student who vanished 23 years ago after attending a party near her school, was reportedly told by federal agents to be prepared for news and to secure a family spokesperson.

Denise Smart, the woman’s mother, told the Stockton Record that she was contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was told to “be ready.”

“This is really going to be something you don’t expect. We want to give you the support you need,” she said she was told.

The report said the FBI was not clear on what the development was, she was told that her family might want to “get away for a while,” and she should secure a family spokesperson.

The mother admitted to the paper that since she was told about the development she has had anxiety.

Smart, who was 19 when she vanished, attended California Polytechnic State University and was last seen in the early morning of May 25, 1996, while returning to her dorm after a party near the campus. At the time, another student told authorities he left Smart near her dormitory after they and another female student walked back.

According to reports at the time, a neighbor in Smart’s dorm called university police the next morning and reported that she hadn’t returned. But other students said they thought she had gone camping, so officers didn’t declare her missing for three days.

The student who told of leaving Smart near her dorm was questioned by authorities and his home was searched but he was not arrested or charged in the case. A California law, the Kristin Smart Campus Safety Act of 1998, now requires campus police to spell out exactly when they will call in outside authorities to investigate a violent crime.

“It’s probably imminently going to break I would say within a month,” the mother said. “Something’s going to happen.”

North Carolina father arrested after allegedly tackling son’s HS wrestling opponent: report

A father in North Carolina was arrested Saturday after police say he tackled a high school wrestler who has just slammed his son to the ground during a tournament.

Barry Lee Jones, who was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct, allegedly tackled a student-athlete from Southeast Guilford High School, which is in Greensboro, Fox 8 reported. His son attends Hickory Ridge High School. Neither student were identified.

A video sent to WFMY News 2 claims to show the incident unfold. The video reportedly shows two students wrestling when the student from Southeast Guilford slams his opponent to the mat.

One self-described witness told the Independent Tribune that the father was prompted to respond due to the move that is known as a “suplex.”

Fox 8 reported that the mat’s expert motioned that he was going to call the move illegal. But that was when the student-athlete was tackled by someone charging from the audience who police identified as Jones.

The Southeast Guilford athlete was not injured, according to reports.

Sharon Contreras, the superintendent of Schools for Guilford County, told Fox 8 that the situation was “very unfortunate.”

“I want to say that the parents from that high school wrote us a lovely letter saying they were equally appalled. It’s not who they are as a community,” she said. And I certainly apologize to the students at both high schools who experienced that, particularly the student who was attacked.”

LOS ANGELES– An unidentified person was in critical condition late Monday after a shooting inside a restaurant at the Century City Mall in Los Angeles, a report said.

The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said. It’s not clear what led up to the shooting.

CBS Los Angeles reported that the shooting occurred at about 10:20 p.m., local time, at Javier’s restaurant. A police source told the station that they are searching for up to eight suspects who fled the location. NBC’s affiliate reported that Santa Monica Boulevard was shut down at Century Park West due to police presence.

The Westfield Century City is home to high-end retailers like Breitling, Eataly and Tiffany & Co. The mall is usually very crowded

Biden accepts Sanders apology over unofficial surrogate’s blistering op-ed

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6122706787001_6122706137001-vs Biden accepts Sanders apology over unofficial surrogate’s blistering op-ed fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 42c24603-07bf-5480-9799-fb4032239145

Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic frontrunner, accepted challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders’ apology late Monday over a blistering op-ed written by an unofficial campaign surrogate who blasted the former vice president as a weak candidate with a serious corruption problem.

Zephyr Teachout, a Fordham Law professor, wrote the column for the Guardian that could be used as a roadmap for President Trump’s re-election team in the general election. She described a candidate happy to be called “Middle-Class Joe,” but whose political career is a bit murkier. She wrote he has a long history of supporting “finance over working-class Americans.”

BIDEN SPEAKS OUT AGAINST RACISM,  LUMPS TRUMP IN WITH KKK

Teachout, who has officially endorsed Sanders, went on to write that nominating a candidate like Biden would make it more difficult to defeat Trump. She said it would allow Trump to “muddy the water, to once again pretend he is the one “draining the swamp.”‘ She said Biden’s record illustrates the “grossly corrupt culture in Washington that long precedes Trump.”

Perhaps if the op-ed stood alone it would result in little more than eye rolls from the Biden campaign, but an NBC News reporter pointed out on Twitter that the Sanders campaign circulated the column. Mediate pointed out that Briahna Joy Gray, Sanders’ press secretary, refused to “directly endorse or disavow” the op-ed’s accusations during an appearance on MSNBC.

There’s a famous quote attributed to Jonathan Swift, an Anglo-Irish essayist, that goes “a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.” At this crucial stage in the primaries, even statements debunked outright can have lasting effects on a campaign.

Sanders was interviewed by CBS News Monday and distanced himself from the op-ed, saying, “It is absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way. And I’m sorry that that op-ed appeared.”

Biden took to Twitter to thank Sanders for the acknowledgment and said it is important that the remaining candidates keep their focus on making Trump a one-term president.

Tensions among the remaining candidates appear to be at its all-time high. Last week, tensions boiled over on stage after the debate when Sanders was confronted by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who accused him of lying about her in the media.

Sanders and Biden have also been feuding over the former vice president’s tenure serving under President Obama. Sanders has claimed that Biden pushed to weaken Social Security.

Biden told an audience that “Bernie’s people” had circulated a video that falsely suggested that in 2018 he agreed with then-House Speaker Paul Ryan’s push to dismantle Social Security benefits.

“It’s simply a lie, that video that’s going around,” he said, adding that Politifact has debunked the video. “This is a doctored tape,” said Biden.

An intraparty battle is seen by many political insiders as a gift for Trump, who is currently facing an impeachment trial in the Senate.

Leslie Marshall, a Fox News contributor, wrote in an op-ed that, “If my fellow Democrats fail to get behind whoever the Democrats nominate for president this year, they will ensure Trump’s reelection.”

New York Times editorial board endorses Warren, Klobuchar for president

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6119872406001_6119872308001-vs New York Times editorial board endorses Warren, Klobuchar for president fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 82fe4224-1b56-52ee-b76b-4b24157ce415

The New York Times announced late Sunday that its editorial board was breaking “from convention” and will endorse two candidates for president in 2020: Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

The paper’s endorsement has traditionally been one of the most coveted for a Democratic politician. The editorial board wrote that in choosing these two candidates, it recognizes that both “radical” and “realist” models should be considered.

The paper said it spent more than 12 hours with the candidates before coming to its conclusion.

“The history of the editorial board would suggest that we would side squarely with the candidate with a more traditional approach to pushing the nation forward, within the realities of a constitutional framework and a multiparty country,” the editorial read. “But the events of the past few years have shaken the confidence of even the most committed institutionalists. We are not veering away from the values we espouse, but we are rattled by the weakness of the institutions that we trusted to undergird those values.”

The paper called Warren a “gifted storyteller” who has “emerged as a standard-bearer for the Democratic left.” The editorial board called her path to the White House is “challenging, but not hard to envision.”

Warren reposted the article on Twitter, joking, “So I guess @AmyKlobuchar and I are now both undefeated in New York Times endorsements!”

Klobuchar was described as the “standard-bearer,” but for the party’s center. The paper gushed that she is the very definition of “Midwestern charisma, grit and sticktoitiveness.”

The paper pointed to her goals of slashing childhood poverty, achieve 100 percent net-zero emissions by 2050 and her push for a more robust public option in healthcare. He moderate approach to governing would make for a formidable deal maker in Washington, the editorial wrote.

Reports on how she treats her staff “gave us pause,” but she pledged to do better in the future, the paper wrote.

Perhaps as important as who the paper endorsed is who it did not.

Joe Biden, the former vice president who continues to lead in polls, but his agenda does not go far enough on issues like climate and health care, the board wrote. The editorial board also wrote that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., appeared to have missed his moment. The paper pointed out that he would be 79 when he’s sworn in and has recently suffered a heart attack. “His health is a serious concern,” it wrote.

The paper said it is looking forward to watching South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg develop as a politician and said it was impressed with his resume, but it also pointed out that he never won more than 11,000 votes. The paper said it hopes Andrew Yang, the entrepreneur, also continues to work in politics and recommended looking to New York to get started.

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor who the editorial board endorsed twice, falls short of the editorial board’s aspirations for 2020. The editorial pointed to issues like barring his own media company from investigating him and his refusal to let women who signed nondisclosure settlements speak to the media. The paper said his campaign approach “reveals more about America’s broken system than his likelihood of fixing it.”

San Francisco homeless crisis worries some attendees at JPMorgan summit: ‘The Bill Clinton of cities’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6103146798001_6103140178001-vs San Francisco homeless crisis worries some attendees at JPMorgan summit: 'The Bill Clinton of cities' fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/san-francisco fox-news/topic/homeless-crisis fox news fnc/us fnc Edmund DeMarche article 349d3940-02e3-55f7-adee-2afd9b75ef85

JPMorgan is holding its annual health care conference in San Francisco this week. But some attendees — when gazing out the windows of their $2,000-a-night hotel rooms or past the doors of another champagne-infused party — have reportedly noticed the city has lost ground in its fight against homelessness.

“I feel unsafe walking around at night, especially as a young woman,” Selin Kurnaz, a co-founder of Massive Bio, told Bloomberg.

JPMORGAN CEO RIPS CRIPPLING PUBLIC POLICY

Other executives at the JPMorgan Healthcare Conference have gone on social media to voice their concerns about the city’s decline and have posted about watching city officials clean human excrement off the streets.

The event — which is expected to bring in about $51 million for the city known for its tech startups and venture capital dollars — draws business leaders from across the globe and is considered a “mecca” for industry insiders.

One CEO from a Colorado-based genetic engineering company told the news outlet that the city “has squandered its place in the sun.”

“San Francisco is the Bill Clinton of cities,” John Price, CEO of Greffex Inc., said. “It squandered itself with its flaws.”

“San Francisco is the Bill Clinton of cities. It squandered itself with its flaws.”

California’s severe housing shortage has helped generate growing numbers of homeless people. Federal officials said last month that an uptick in the U.S. homeless population was driven entirely by a 16 percent increase in California, where the median sales price of a home is $500,000 — and even higher in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The homeless situation in the city has become a national issue.  President Trump in December told California Gov. Gavin Newsom that the federal government would intervene if the state fails to get a grip on the homeless population.

Newsom blamed the Trump administration over rising homelessness in cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, saying the White House was taking no action on “Housing First,” the governor’s approach to solving homelessness.

The Bloomberg report described how JPMorgan attendees on Sunday “with suitcases in tow checked into the W hotel” after stepping over flattened cardboard boxes and passing homeless individuals in sleeping bags.

The report said once inside the hotel “men in ties and women in tweed chomped on spring rolls and chocolate cakes, and sipped gin cocktails and champagne.”

Earlier this year, San Francisco learned that tech giant Oracle would be moving its annual OpenWorld conference to Las Vegas after about two decades in the City by the Bay. “Poor street conditions” were reportedly cited as one reason for the relocation, which will reportedly cost San Francisco about $64 million in economic activity.

Trump agrees with UK’s Johnson on replacing Obama-era Iranian deal

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6122757389001_6122756033001-vs Trump agrees with UK’s Johnson on replacing Obama-era Iranian deal fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 5a83c57a-c6d8-56c0-8a59-256b4ac8e116

President Trump late Tuesday tweeted his support for Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s idea to scrap the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal and replaced it with a new proposal designed and negotiated by the Trump administration.

BORIS JOHNSON SAYS TRUMP SHOULD DESIGN HIS OWN NUKE DEAL

Trump was likely referring to an interview that the United Kingdom leader had with the BBC on Monday where he called his U.S. counterpart “a great deal maker, by his own account and others,” and expressed a willingness to let Trump take the lead on the matter.

“If we’re going to get rid of it, let’s replace it and let’s replace it with the Trump deal,” Johnson said.

Trump tweeted late Tuesday the quote from the interview and the line, “I agree!”

The U.S. pulled out from the Obama-era agreement in 2018.  Trump devoted much of his time while running for office mocking the international agreement for being too soft on the Iranian regime.

Trump took a major gamble earlier this month when he approved the drone killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Iran’s immediate response to fire missiles at bases holding U.S. troops in the region was considered by many to be contained.  There were no reports of casualties. But some Middle East experts warn that Tehran and some of its proxies may still be planning a more meaningful retaliation.

The Trump administration has said it is not focused on regime change in the country, but—at least for the time—appears to be in a powerful negotiating position with Tehran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was at Stanford University on Monday and said the administration’s goal is to one day see Iran “behave like a normal nation. Just be like Norway,” he said, according to the New York Times.

White House’s ‘first snow of the year’ tweet confuses Washington, DC, residents

Westlake Legal Group EOID4CKXUAw03sO White House's 'first snow of the year' tweet confuses Washington, DC, residents fox-news/weather fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche e260d3e5-1ecf-5890-8bd3-6c420be5f9c2 article

The White House’s official Twitter handle on Sunday confused residents in Washington, D.C., when it tweeted out a nighttime photograph of the world’s most famous residence behind falling snowflakes with the caption: “First snow of the year!”

TRUMP WARNS TEHRAN NOT TO HARM PROTESTERS 

One problem: It didn’t snow in the city that day and was, in fact, unseasonably warm, with highs that nearly reached 70 degrees. So unless Disney’s Elsa made an unannounced state visit, Twitter users demanded answers.

The tweet sparked a blizzard of replies that largely mocked the administration.

Some on Twitter recalled the time that Trump insisted that Alabama was threatened by Hurricane Dorian. The issue became famous when Trump held up a map in the Oval Office showing the “cone of uncertainty” over areas the storm could hit. The map seemed to include a section of Alabama and the Florida panhandle circled with a black marker.

Newsweek said it reached out to the White House for comment and later learned that the White House shared a flickr.com page that further explained the photo used in the tweet was taken on Jan. 7, the last time it snowed in the city. The confusion appeared to be that the White House did not include the date the photo was taken in the tweet.

“It was 70 degrees today,” Bradley Moss, a national security lawyer, wrote, according to Newsweek. “There was no snow out there.”

Trump tweets again in Farsi, says Iran has been ‘choked off’ by sanctions, protests

President Trump late Sunday tweeted in Farsi that a combination of protests and sanctions have “choked off” Iran and said Tehran will be forced to the negotiation table.

STEVE HILTON GOES OFF ON ‘ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS’

Trump insisted that he “couldn’t care less” if the regime negotiates, but he appeared to lay down non-negotiable issues that included the development of nuclear weapons and the use of deadly force against protesters.

“Don’t kill your protesters,” he tweeted.

US TROOPS PRAISE GENERAL’S KILLING, COTTON SAYS

The tweet in Farsi appears to be an attempt by Trump to speak directly to the Iranian people. Tehran has experienced upheaval after the missile strike on a Ukrainian airline flight out of the country’s capital that the country called a mistake. Still, the mishap was seen as an international display of military ineptitude.

Many of the country’s protesters chanted “death to the Dictator,” referring to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Trump, who says he is not interested in ousting the Iranian regime, reinstated economic sanctions on Iran after withdrawing from the nuke deal. He said it gave Tehran too many economic benefits without doing enough to prevent Iran from eventually developing a nuclear weapon.

Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh,  the head of the Revolutionary Guard’s aerospace division, said his unit accepts “full responsibility.” Iranian officials had earlier denied that it had shot down the jet.

Alam Saleh, an Iran expert, told the Wall Street Journal that the state’s legitimacy has been “severely challenged by the people.”

Trump, hours earlier, again warned Tehran not to kill protesters, saying, “Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching.”

Karen Pierce, British ambassador to the United Nations, echoed Trump’s message to Iran.

“The important thing is that… the Iranian government needs to listen to its people and it needs to de-escalate the current situation… that’s in their hands,” Pierce said Sunday on “America’s News HQ.”
