President Trump proposes addressing California homeless crisis; liberals decry him as “Hitler”

We all know that the homeless crisis in California is bad, very bad. See the NSFW video below.

Demorat-run cities are plagued with streets lined with syringes, feces and urine. There are 124 confirmed cases of typhus in Los Angeles with fears of the Bubonic Plague making a comeback. Even leprosy has found its way back into California!

Man infected with leprosy

President Trump’s administration is actually considering doing something to help the people living on the streets of California. From the HuffPo story:

“Trump administration officials were in Los Angeles this week to learn about the city’s homelessness crisis and explore avenues for addressing the broader issue across the state.

Among the proposed options is a plan to clear street encampments in Los Angeles and other cities and move the homeless people into government-run facilities, according to a report by The Washington Post.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Staff from Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office on Tuesday took officials from the White House, the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Domestic Policy Council on a tour of the city’s skid row.

The group visited several homeless shelters, including a facility that recently opened in South L.A. as part of a new $20 million program called A Bridge Home, according to Garcetti’s office.

“Like many Americans, the President has taken notice of the homelessness crisis, particularly in cities and states where the liberal policies of overregulation, excessive taxation, and poor public service delivery are combining to dramatically increase poverty and public health risks,” White House spokesperson Judd Deere said in a statement.

“In June, the President took action and signed an Executive Order to confront the regulatory barriers to affordable housing development, a leading cause of homelessness,” the statement said. “President Trump has directed his team to go further and develop a range of policy options for consideration to deal with this tragedy.”

The administration’s visit follows months of harsh critique from President Donald Trump over California’s rising homelessness. “We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up. It’s inappropriate,” Trump said in a Fox News interview that aired in July. He singled out Los Angeles and San Francisco, slamming the “liberal establishment” and saying, “You take a look at what’s going on with San Francisco. It’s terrible.”

State and city officials appeared cautiously optimistic about the talks on Tuesday but called for concrete and appropriate action from the administration.

Nathan Click, a spokesperson for California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times: “Every level of government — including federal — should step up and put skin in the game. If the president is willing to put serious solutions – with real investment – on the table, California stands ready to talk. He could start by ending his plan to cut food stamps, gut health care for low-income people, and scare immigrant families from accessing government services.”

Read the whole story here.

Apparently wanting to do something for the homeless (which local and state bureaucrats are incapable of doing) is just Orange Man Bad.

Some of the comments from the HuffPo story:

“They used to call them concentration camps in nazi Germany.”

Trumps whole premise for the reason there is a homeless crisis in CA is wrong. Homeless people migrate to CA from other states because of the mild climate. Severe homeless began during the Reagan administration when he striped funding form mental institutions and patients were put out onto the street and states started busing people to other states and dumping them. Every Republican administration since then has added to the problem by eliminating the social safety nets , housing programs, etc., as much as they could get away with. Trump is probably one of the worse. The government institutions he speaks of will be internment camps out in the desert somewhere with forced labor camps to replace the migrant workers he is keeping out of the country.”

“Looks like Trump is ready to start the round ups. The similarities between Trump wanting to send homeless people to encampments has an uncanny resemblance to Hitler’s roundup of the Gypsies.”

“More fodder for his private concentration camps. I guess kids just aren’t enough.”

“Sounds like what Stalin did at first? First come the concentration camps,then come the purges?

Here come the death camps… at the very minimum they are going to put a lot of very vulnerable people into a very dubious place that will only amplify the traumas they have experienced to date.”

“Are we still pretending that Trump’s concentration camps were only going to be for asylum-seekers at the border. This time it’s homeless US citizens. Who’s next?”

Trump’s solution: Concentration Camps. Figures.”

“Didn’t the Germans do that same thing to Gypsies? Look how that turned out.”

TDS is real folks, very real.

Hypocrite: Pro-gun control Hollyweirdo Alyssa Milano owns 2 guns for self-defense

Aging actress Alyssa Milano in a cleavage-bearing low-cut blouse at SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing October 2018

Has-been actress Alyssa Milano, 46, is a rabid gun-control activist.

As an example, on May 5, 2018, Milano led a protest against Vice President Mike Pence at the NRA’s 2018 convention in Dallas, Texas, despite the fact that both Pence and the NRA are renowned defenders of the right to own guns for self-defense.

Milano’s protest is the height of hypocrisy because she herself owns two guns for self-defense. In other words, she should lead a protest against herself.

Breitbart reports that during a debate with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday evening, Sept. 10, 2019, Milano and Fred Guttenberg — whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed in the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Parkland, Florida — pressed Cruz on various gun control proposals.

Milano proposed universal background checks, restricting access to AR-15s, and background checks for bullet purchases, while insisting, “We all believe in the Second Amendment.”

Around 13 minutes into the discussion, Guttenberg said he was offended by Cruz’s argument that these gun controls would erode Americans’ rights to self-defense, saying: “That’s a load of BS. Nobody’s trying to remove your right to self-defense.”

Milano interjected: “By the way, I have two guns in my household for self-defense, just so you know.”

Hypocrite!

Hypocrite: Champagne-socialist millionaire Bernie Sanders donated less than 1% of his income to charity

Although Joe Biden is the leading Demonrat candidate in the 2020 presidential race, according to a Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald Poll released yesterday, a new poll shows that Senator Bernie Sanders (Vt) now leads the field in New Hampshire. There the self-described Democratic socialist has the support of 29% of likely Democratic primary voters.

Bernie Sanders’ supporters and Democrat voters in general should know, if they don’t already, Bernie is a “Do as I say, not as I do” hypocrite. Alas, I don’t hold out much hope because we have survey statistical data that his supporters are low information voters.

How is Bernie Sanders the socialist a hypocrite? Let me count the ways:

  1. Though an advocate of socialism — which Karl Marx defined as an political-economic system that would abolish private property ownership so as to redistribute and equalize wealth — who claims to speak for the 99% and rants against the super rich one-percenters, Bernie is himself a millionaire who owns three homes and drives a $140,000 Audi R8.
    1. Tellingly, Bernie bought his third home — a $600,000 lakefront summer home in North Hero, Vermont, with 4 bedrooms and 500 ft. of Lake Champlain beachfront — just 5 days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention in which he sold out his supporters by enthusiastically endorsing Hillary Clinton.
  2. Though a proponent of $15/hr minimum wage, Bernie pays his staff poverty wages.
  3. Though an environmentalist who preaches about global-warming climate-change, Bernie flew first-class to the May 2019 Demonrat primary debate in Miam, while his wife flew coach — which makes him a sexist as well as a hypocrite.

The latest Bernie hypocrisy is that not only is he a socialist millionaire (an oxymoron!), he is also miserly and stingy toward the poor and needy.

On Sept. 8, Charlie Kirk, the founder and president of the conservative non-profit Turning Point USA (TPUSA), the conservative non-profit organization that maintains a Professor Watchlist on college professors who discriminates against conservative students and advances left-wing propaganda in the classroom, tweeted that Bernie Sanders made more than a million dollars in 2016, but donated less than 1% of his considerable income to charity:

New “Monopoly” update gives women an “advantage”

Women want “equal” rights so now they have a board game that gives them an “advantage.”

Liberal logic is not designed to make sense.

From NY Post: Do not pass go, do not collect…$240?

The iconic Monopoly board game is getting a feminist update for 2019.

Hasbro’s newest version of the game, dubbed “Ms. Monopoly,” will pay female players more than males – a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the gender pay gap in America.

In Ms. Monopoly, women will receive $240 when they pass “go,” whereas men will only receive the usual $200. Additionally, women will receive $1900 at the beginning of the game instead of $1500, according to USA Today.

On the game box, the classic Rich Uncle Pennybags character is replaced by his “niece” Ms. Monopoly, ready to break the glass ceiling with her gray blazer and cup of coffee.

At the bottom, the slogan reads, “The first game where women make more than men.”

“[It’s] a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men,” Hasbro said in a statement. “But don’t worry, if men play their cards right, they can make more money too.”

The pay disparity is not the only female-centric addition to the game. Instead of buying traditional properties and charging rent, players will instead have the chance to invest in inventions pioneered by women, including Wi-Fi and chocolate chip cookies, according to CNN.

“With all of the things surrounding female empowerment, it felt right to bring this to Monopoly in a fresh new way,” Jen Boswinkel, senior director of global brand strategy and marketing for Hasbro, told USA Today. “It’s giving the topic some relevancy to everyone playing it that everybody gets a turn, and this time women get an advantage at the start.”

Boswinkel also told USA Today that families can opt to give out equal amounts of cash to every player if they choose.

Hasbro faced some heat last month after another edition of the game, Monopoly Socialism, gained attention on social media. Designed as a parody of the game’s capitalism-centric themes, some accused it of being condescending and getting socialism theory wrong.

Ms. Monopoly is available for pre-order September 10.

Convicted child rapist Roman Polanski wins Venice Film Festival award

What an effect that “Me Too” movement (in part popularized by Hollyweird actress Alyssa Milano) had on “giving people a sense of the magnitude of the problem” of sexual harassment.

From Yahoo: “Joker” from director Todd Phillips won the Golden Lion, and “J’Accuse,” or “An Officer and a Spy,” from director Roman Polanski has won the Grand Jury Prize, the festival’s runner up prize, at the 76th edition of the Venice Film Festival.

The comic book film starring Joaquin Phoenix in an origin story of the iconic Batman villain beat out a lineup that also included films such as James Gray’s “Ad Astra” and Steven Soderbergh’s “The Laundromat” for the top prize.

“I want to thank Warner Bros. and DC for stepping out of their comfort zone and taking a big swing on me,” director Todd Phillips said as he accepted the Golden Lion.

Polanski’s “An Officer and a Spy” stars Jean Dujardin in a film about the Dreyfus Affair. His presence at the festival generated some backlash, as it’s his first film since the director was expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He was not present in Venice to accept the award.

Read the whole story here.

Women among the jury included the following:

Lucrecia Martel, who once said this: “I feel bad for male friends and colleagues, but a man’s education is made, in a way, in order to avoid failure. That’s why I think gender violence is more men on women rather than women on men, because they are not able to manage frustration. This ability to manage frustration is a big advantage in this profession and I am actually very surprised that there are not more women making cinema today. Because being a woman makes you more ready to do this.”

Mary Harron, who made this claim at the Festival: “We’re trying to overturn a system of inertia that works in favor of the status quo: funders give money to people like themselves, or they are women trying to keep their position in a male-dominated world.”

Stacy Martin, who made this claim about the Festival: ”It’s a slow process, but in the hopes of achieving gender equality in a male-dominated industry, being included in the jury and being a part of the changes happening is very important to me.”

Take a bow, you hypocrites.

Attention environmentalists: You can buy Bette Midler’s NYC 7,000 square foot home for just $50 million

What do you suppose the carbon footprint is from the size of her house? Doesn’t matter because we’re all going to “burn, drown or starve” due to climate change and President Trump’s policies.

From Daily Mail: Bette Midler’s lavish Fifth Avenue penthouse apartment has gone on sale for an astonishing $50 million after the much-loved singer and entertainer revealed she wanted to downsize now that her daughter has flown the nest.

The Wind Beneath My Wings songstress, 73, who is married to performance artist Martin von Haselberg, has lived in the Upper East Side triplex which boasts stunning views of the Central Park reservoir, since 1996.

With a more than generous 7,000 square feet of space and an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor space, the property is among the best of its kind anywhere in New York City.

Midler’s daughter, Sophie von Haselberg, was schooled nearby but now in her thirties and pursuing a career in acting in LA, the singer explained it was time to let another family enjoy the property.

The asking price is $50 million, according to the listing broker, John Burger of Brown Harris Stevens, with $25,515 in monthly maintenance.

‘It’s time for another family to enjoy it,’ Ms. Midler told The New York Times, adding that she and Mr. von Haselberg ‘consider ourselves die-hard New Yorkers’ and plan to downsize into another Manhattan home.

After the units were initially bought, the interior was completely overhauled with an expansion by architect Frederick Fisher and Partners, the Brown Harris Stevens sales listing shows.

‘The ceilings were lower,’ Midler said of the property before it’s upgrade. ‘The corridors narrower, and many of the rooms were much smaller’. Today, she said, ‘it’s like a country house in the city.’

The triplex offers four bedrooms and six and a half baths, plus a home gym sizeable enough to be converted into a fifth bedroom. The penthouse has around 3,000 square feet of outdoor space that provide direct views of the Central Park reservoir.

Mick Jagger blasts President Trump and attacks the US for “tearing apart” environmental standards

From Daily Mail: Rock and Roll icon Mick Jagger has lamented Donald Trump as a polarizing and rude figure who is ‘tearing apart’ America’s environmental safeguards – but the US president wasn’t the only world leader to be admonished in the singer’s extraordinary diatribe Saturday.

The Rolling Stones frontman said America should be setting the environmental standard for the world to follow, but, under the leadership of Trump, Jagger believes environment controls are being decimated.

Jagger, 76, says he is ‘absolutely behind’ young climate change activists who had earlier occupied the red carpet at the Venice film festival, where the new psychological thriller he’s starring in, ‘The Burnt Orange Heresy’, was debuting.

He then deplored how politics has descended into a circus of name-calling, ‘including in my own country this week’ – a reference to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson comparing opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to a ‘big girl’s blouse’ and a ‘chlorinated chicken’.

Jagger also bewailed ‘the polarization and incivility in public life’, although the one-time bad boy of 1960s rock admitted he was ‘not always for civility’ himself.

‘But when you see it now… in so many countries, including my own this last week, but particularly the US, it’s a sea change.

‘It is not about manners,’ Jagger insisted, saying he was fearful about ‘where all this polarization and rudeness and lying is going to lead us.’

More worrying still, said the singer, was that what little environmental safeguards there were were being swept away across the globe.

Jagger blasted Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement. ‘We are in a very difficult situation at the moment, especially in the US, where all the environmental controls that were put in place – that were just about adequate – have been rolled back by the current administration so much that they are being wiped out,’ he added.

Read the whole story here.

As you can see, Jagger is extremely concerned about the environment…

The failure of liberal logic summed up in two Oregon headlines

Headline One: E-cigarette deaths climb as officials confirm some illnesses caused by oil in lungs from vaping marijuana

Headline Two: Oregon is one step closer to being the first state to legalize psychedelic mushrooms

Details from Headline One: At least four people have died after using e-cigarettes and about 450 possible cases of severe lung diseases are now under investigation — more than doubling the breadth of the mysterious illness that has gripped the country, federal health officials announced Friday. The cases have spread to 33 states, most related to people vaping marijuana products, officials said.

Details from Headline Two: Oregon voters may get the chance to decide whether or not to become the first state to legalize psychedelic mushrooms next year. The ballot title for the Psilocybin Service Initiative, or Initiative Petition #34, was certified Friday and now supporters of a measure to legalize psilocybin in controlled settings can gather signatures to get the issue on the ballot in 2020. The initiative won’t mean that “magic” mushrooms are legal at all times and everywhere in the state. Instead, the measure would allow “manufacture, delivery, administration of psilocybin at supervised, licensed facilities.”

The recreational use of marijuana was passed in Oregon in 2014 under Ballot Measure 91. Its passage legalized the “recreational use of marijuana, based on regulation and taxation to be determined by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission”.

Yet who could have predicted the bad consequences from legalizing marijuana? That is rhetorical, of course.

So what do progressives want to legalize next? Psychedelic mushrooms!
