Welcome to the Divided States of America

Written by Thursday, November 17, 2016
By Veronica Mackey It’s not the type of response one would expect after a presidential election in America. Sure, there’s always disappointment, but nothing like what we’ve seen during the last week. On par with the most divisive campaign in modern history, spontaneous protests over last week’s election results have ripped this country even farther apart. #NotMyPresident protests continue to spring up organically from the streets of Los Angeles to high schools in D.C. Even…

Written by Thursday, November 17, 2016
Officer Jeronimo Yanez was formally charged with second degree manslaughter on Wednesday in the shooting death of black motorist Philando Castille. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison. He was also charged with 2 counts of dangerously discharging a firearm, each carrying a sentence of up to 5 years. The video was shot by Diamond Reynolds, Castile’s fiancée, who was in the car with him. Her 4 year-old daughter was in…
The long, grueling 18-month ordeal, known as the 2016 Presidential Race, came to a surprising end on Tuesday when Republican Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in his bid for the White House. Trump won major swing states, and even turned some blue states red, winning 279 electoral votes to Clinton’s 228. In California, however, the numbers were very different. Clinton ended up with 61.5% of the vote to Trump’s 33.2 %. Appearing before a…

Jury for South Carolina Church Shooter Postponed

Written by Thursday, November 10, 2016
A federal judge on Monday has postponed jury selection in the U.S. death penalty trial of Dylann Roof, the 22-year-old white man accused of killing nine people at Mother Emanuel AME, a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, last year. He is also charged with nine counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder under a second federal hate crime statute that prohibits the use or threat of force to obstruct any person's…

Janet Reno Dead at 78

Written by Thursday, November 10, 2016
As America elects its first woman president, the nation’s first woman to be elected attorney general of the United States has died. Janet Reno, who served under President Bill Clinton for 8 years, passed away on Monday at her home in Miami-Dade County, Fla. She was 78. Her sister, Margaret Hurchalla, said cause of death was complications of Parkinson’s disease, which was diagnosed in November 1995, while she was still in office. Reno’s career as…

My Day as a Poll Worker

Written by Thursday, November 10, 2016
By Veronica Mackey It’s 6am and a group of sleepy but cheerful folks are mulling around First Lutheran Church in Culver City. I am one of several there to help people cast their votes. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do—a thing to check off my bucket list. This year, though, I must admit I was more than a little concerned—not about Donald Trump’s assertion that the voting process was “rigged,” but about voter suppression.…

Making Trump Accountable

Written by Thursday, November 10, 2016
It’s the day after the shock. The day after learning Donald Trump was elected the 45th U.S. president. Many feared this day and others felt it would never happen. Well, it happened, like it or not. So now, those of us crushed by Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat are left with picking up the pieces of what has been a particularly hard, long and bitter campaign. We’ll all have to put on our big boy and girl pants to survive. Trump made a lot of promises when we ran for office. And although he was not the candidate that many of…

My Endorsements for November 8th

Written by Friday, November 04, 2016
Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are my choices for president and vice president for obvious reasons. Clinton brings tons of experience to this office and Trump’s unsteady temperament, possible friendly relationship a Russian dictator, and horrific remarks about anyone non-male or non-white make him downright dangerous. In the race for U.S. Senate, current Attorney General Kamala Harris has my vote over Rep. Loretta Sanchez. She fought hard for Californians who lost their homes in the massive foreclosure scandal and I believe she’ll be just as tough in Washington. Speaking of fighting, anyone who knows Rep. Maxine Waters knows she doesn’t…
By Thomas Bunn Last week the conversation at City Council was over extending parking permits. This week, the Permits and Licenses Committee along with City staff held a public hearing to consider the P&L Committee’s denial of a business license renewal request from Los Dos Hermanos to operate music boxes, as well as their request for the operation of a billiard room. Deputy City Manager, Ms. Yakema Decatur provided a staff report on the matter,…
By Veronica Mackey After his bombshell announcement to reopen the Hillary Clinton email investigation last week, FBI Director James Comey has gone silent—leaving the media and political pundits to ponder what the vaguely written letter released 11 days before the presidential election could possibly mean. We only know that there may be new evidence in the case, but so far nothing has been found. The letter was Comey’s heads up to Republican Congressional leaders that…

Remembering E.J. Jackson

Written by Friday, November 04, 2016
A local legend and philanthropist E.J. Jackson has died, just weeks shy of his highly popular Thanksgiving turkey giveaway. Jackson was the founder of Jackson Limousine Service, one of the top transportation companies in Southern California. Heavily patronized by A-list celebrities and regular folks, Jackson is the go-to limousine service for concerts, proms, weddings, funerals and other special events. Family members said he died of a massive heart attack Tuesday night at a local hospital.…
A male birth control shot exists and is nearly 96% percent effective at preventing pregnancy, researchers found, but a study on the contraceptive ended early after men taking it reported negative side effects including mood swings, an altered libido and acne. In other words, they experienced side effects faced by women already taking birth control every day. In the study, published last week in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, researchers found only four…
Watching interviews with black Trump supporters reminds me of one of the most tragic events in modern history. I’m talking about the Jonestown Massacres. On November 18, 1978, 918 people, many African American, were brainwashed into committing suicide because of false prophet Jim Jones. Being very religious and believing Jones was the closest thing to the Messiah on Earth, the group followed him to a compound in Guyana, South America, which he built up as paradise. Paradise, however, was not cheap. The fiery preacher convinced the vulnerable bunch to support his ministry by giving him their hard earned savings and…
A rogue loan officer was sentenced this week to 18 months in federal prison for approving bad church loans. Paul Ryan pleaded guilty to scamming his former employer, Broadway Federal Bank by lending to churches that were poor credit risks. Working with loan brokers, Ryan pocketed $354,000 in kickbacks in exchange for approving the loans from 2007 through 2010. He was ordered to pay the same amount in restitution on Monday to Broadway Federal. During…
