Progressive policies in action: Homelessness in LA County expected to skyrocket by 86% in next 4 years

The street of LA…

As is the case with many progressive-run large cities, Los Angeles is facing a major homeless crisis. I’ve reported on this many times over the last several years, see the following:

Paradise lost: Homeless in demorat-run Los Angeles
Demorat-run Los Angeles County: Homeless death rate jumps by more than a third
Demorat-run Los Angeles: 124 confirmed cases of Typhus amid fears Bubonic Plague is affecting homeless
Liberal utopia of Los Angeles: Take a look at Skid Row…

After the city has spent MILLIONS each year, do you think they’ve achieved any level of success in solving their homeless crisis?

That is rhetorical, of course. Just take a look at this:

ABC7 News reports that the non-profit Economic Roundtable predicts that chronic homelessness in Los Angeles County is expected to skyrocket by 86% in next four years.

Aparently the impact of Wuhan virus is expected to be twice as bad as the financial crisis of 2008.

Los Angeles County has approximately 15,000 chronically homeless and that number is expected to DOUBLE in the next four years.

More from the ABC story: The county’s overall homeless population, which includes so-called “couch surfers” and others who bounce in and out of homelessness, is currently hovering around 66,000. The Economic Roundtable forecast pegs that number at 89,760 by 2023, a 36% increase.

Guess the common denominator: US cities set record-breaking crime/gun violence/homicides in 2020

Many in the media are blaming the increase of gun violence/homicides in U.S. cities on the Wuhan virus.

Just how bad was 2020 for violence in some American cities? Take a look at these headlines:

Seattle police report record-setting homicides in 2020
Chicago ends 2020 with 769 homicides as gun violence surges
St. Louis’ 2020 homicide rate is highest in 50 years
Shootings in Portland more than double in 2020
NYC ends 2020 with 41% spike in homicides
Minneapolis homicides and shootings up 64% compared to last four years
Milwaukee ends 2020 with record 189 homicides
San Francisco homicides are up amid the coronavirus pandemic
LA’s 2020 Murder Rate 25% Above Last Year
Louisville shatters record for homicides, nonfatal shootings in 2020

Gee, I wonder what all these cities have in common?

So is the Wuhan virus really to blame for this increase in voilence?

I’d argue that the soft-on-crime, “criminal justice reform” DAs contributed. I’d argue that the demorat mayors who allowed rioting and looting contributed. I’d argue that the demorats who support #defundthepolice contributed. I’d argue that demorat mayors who allowed Antifa free-reign (Seattle and Portland) contributed.

Most importantly, I’d argue that the criminals pulling the triggers were most responsible.

Yet we know that the media much prefers to stick to their narratives rather than the facts.

California restaurant owner fights back against LA health department

If the California restaurant industry is going to survive (big, fast-food chains excluded as they face little to no shutdowns), they are going to need more business owners like this guy (owner of Bread & Barley):

FYI: Two days after the incident, the Bread & Barley received a notice of closure from the Los Angeles Department of Public Health.

Bread & Barley posted on their Instagram: “The police department was supportive and only trying to keep things peaceful! I have no issue with law enforcement and I’ve never had any issues with law enforcement.”

Check out their Instagram here.

If the “entertainment” business can stay open in California, then the bureaucrats should be able to figure out a way to keep ALL businesses open. But we all know that everyone “open for business” is not their goal.

It’s about CONTROL.

UNREAL: LA Mayor shuts down outdoor dining…unless you’re working for a movie production company

This is from Pineapple Hill Grill & Saloon in Sherman Oaks, California. Watch what the demorat bureaucrats are doing to this woman and her livelihood:

Nothing is going to stop this madness. Bureaucrats keep imposing more lockdowns while they flagrantly violate their own Wuhan virus rules. And all they have to do is “apologize.”

THEY DON’T CARE about YOU, your business, or what rules YOU have to follow. And they NEVER face any consequences for their actions. It’s all about control.

People better start waking up. We’re on something like day 264 of “15 days to flatten the curve.”

If these demorats get their way, this country WILL be living a “new normal” under their control and president-elect #notmypresident Biden.

Another LA County “safer-at-home” decree issued due to Wuhan; Hispanics account for 73% of hospitalizations

Month nine of Wuhan virus and Los Angeles County is implementing another “safer-at-home” order. Cases are on the rise so certain public and private gatherings are prohibited, a decree lasting until Dec. 20. Exempt from this decree: church and public protests.

This “decree” was issued because of a fifth consecutive day of 4,500 or more new cases of Wuhan virus. Demorat Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted the following yesterday:

Sounds like a scary situation, right? Let’s take a look at the numbers, shall we?

Los Angeles County has a population of 10 million.

According to the Los Angeles County Wuhan virus dashboard, the county has a cumulative case count of 381,535. That’s less than four percent of the county population.

There are currently 2,316 people hospitalized with Wuhan virus OR suspect COVID-19. Of those confirmed cases, 24% are in ICU beds.

But look at this number: Of those hospitalized in Los Angeles County due to Wuhan virus, 73% are Hispanic. The next highest number is “other,” with 11%. African Americans make up 6% of those hospitalized and white just 2%.

Next number: Of those Wuhan virus cases admitted to the ICU, Hispanics makes up 70%. The next “known” ethnicity categories in ICU are Asian and African American – each make up 5% of the ICU admissions.

According to the 2018 US Census data, Hispanics account for 48.5 percent of the Los Angeles County population.

I’m not a health expert or a bureaucrat but isn’t the rather large number of Hispanics hospitalized in Los Angeles County disproportionate to their total population number? Could it have something to do with the fact that California is a sanctuary state? Or that cases are spiking in California along the Mexican border?

From my blog post “Why you should support border control: El Paso hospitals full of Wuhan virus patients from Mexico” on November 19:

“Todd Bensman (senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies) stated, “I just talked to a doctor in Arizona who told me 75 percent of patients in the hospital there are Mexican. And it’s happening in California too.”

Heaven forbid Los Angeles County bureaucrats evaluate the real source of the rise in Wuhan virus hospitalizations. Because it’s obvious to me that a certain ethnicity is responsible, based upon their own data. Seems that it would be prudent to determine their travel patterns or at least intensify contract tracing with those patients.

But that would probably be deemed raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacist.

Instead, ALL peons must be punished. That’s liberal logic for ‘ya.

Welcome to demorat-run California: Turn off AC & appliances during heatwave!

California is having a heatwave right now. They are also experiencing blackouts.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has a solution for that:

Years of “progressive climate change” policies have destroyed the energy infrastructure and capabilities in California. In their desire to be a leader in renewable energy, the demorats have destroyed the state’s ability to adequately handle “normal” weather events.

When are demorats going to learn that elections have consequences?

Before you know it, California will be like this:

North Korea doing their part to save the environment…

Demorat LA mayor cuts utilities to ‘party house’ in Hollywood Hills

What’s the mayor going to do if homeowners still party while using generators? Send in his brown shirts?

LA Mayor Garcetti/LA Times photo

From AOL:

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti ordered utilities cut off Wednesday at a home where “several” parties have been held in violation of social distancing rules during the coronavirus pandemic, his office said.

Garcetti had vowed on Aug. 5 to disconnect utilities at homes where local laws prohibiting large gatherings are repeatedly violated.

“With more than 2,000 Angelenos — and over 170,000 Americans — lost to COVID-19, we need every resident to undertake critical safeguards to stop the spread of this virus,” he said in a statement.

“That includes not hosting or attending parties that put themselves, their neighbors, and many others at risk.”

City officials described the residence only as “a house in the Hollywood Hills that had hosted several large parties in violation of public health orders.” Events took place there Aug. 8 and last Friday, the mayor’s office said.

Both times, police posted warnings that utilities would be cut off, the mayor’s office said. Such locations have sometimes turned into surrogates for a nightlife scene that has all but disappeared because of state orders that have closed bars and clubs to prevent spread of the coronavirus.

“Despite several warnings, this house has turned into a nightclub in the hills, hosting large gatherings in flagrant violation of our public health orders,” Garcetti said. “The City has now disconnected utilities at this home to stop these parties that endanger our community.”

The mayor made his Aug. 5 announcement that he would use utilities as a weapon against noncompliant locations a day after a woman was fatally shot at a Los Angeles mansion party that had been visited earlier by police who did not shut down the festivities.

Teenager in juvenile LA detention facility forced to take estrogen for “disorder”

I saw this on Tucker Carlson the other night and couldn’t believe it was true. The teenager has been diagnosed with “oppositional defiant disorder.”

Some might call it “being a teenager.”

Sounds like this story came straight out of the Chicom’s playbook.
