Evictions are expected to spark increase in food insecurity, mental duress, say UCLA researchers

LOS ANGELES — Researchers expect an increase in food insecurity and mental duress sparked by the expiration of the federal moratorium on rental evictions, a study released Monday by the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate indicates. When the eviction ban went into effect in California in March last year as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, scarce household financial resources in some renter households were redirected to immediate needs, including food and grocery spending, resulting in reduced food...

Want to avoid lockdown? You may not like the advice

By Ralph Ellis and Madeline Holcombe | CNN To avoid lockdowns, people in the United States will have to do things that they won’t necessarily want to do, such as wearing masks at indoor gatherings even if they’re vaccinated and having kids mask up in schools, the director of the National Institutes of Health said Monday. “We want to avoid lockdowns at all costs, but that means we’re going to have to do some other things that won’t necessarily be welcomed by people,” Dr. Francis Collins said on A...

Will Donald Trump be spoiler as California GOP seeks Gov. Newsom recall?

By MICHAEL R. BLOOD | The Associated Press LOS ANGELES  — California could witness a stunning turnabout in a nation of deeply polarized politics if the liberal state dumps Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom and elects a Republican to fill his job in a September recall election. With the country’s political center largely vanished, it’s rare to see governors win elections on adversarial ground, making the notion of a Republican upset in one of the nation’s Democratic strongholds seem implausible. Repub...

It pays to be related to people in power

In his book, “A Magician Among the Spirits,” Harry Houdini relates the story of the life and career of a sketchy spiritualist named Daniel Dunglas Home. He was “outwardly a lovable character with a magnetic personality” as well as a fondness for jewelry, Houdini wrote. “In his later years, he set up a studio in Italy and gave his attention to sculpture between seances and ‘sold busts at prices quite out of proportion to their artistic merits.’” Houdini cited a report in an 1864 London newspaper,...

Federal spending binge obviously linked to inflation

Politicians often seem to live in an alternative universe, where they act as if they can unilaterally dispense with the laws of economics by the sheer power of their words. President Joe Biden provided the latest example of this phenomenon, although he is carrying on a long tradition. “If your primary concern right now is inflation, you should be even more enthusiastic about this plan,” the president said in recent remarks defending his multitrillion-dollar spending plan. “These steps will enhan...

Biden nominates Gold Star dad Khan to religious freedom post

By Donald Judd | CNN President Joe Biden announced Friday that he was appointing Khizr Khan, a Gold Star father who drew then-candidate Donald Trump’s ire when he spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. Khan, who endorsed Biden in 2020, said in 2016 that Trump “sacrificed nothing and no one,” before raising a copy of the US Constitution, asking if Trump had ever read it. Khan’s son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, died in Bag...

Congress fails to extend national COVID eviction ban

By Lisa Mascaro, Michael Casey and Josh Boak | Associated Press WASHINGTON — A nationwide eviction moratorium is set to expire Saturday after President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress worked furiously but ultimately failed to align on a long-shot strategy to prevent millions of Americans from being forced from their homes during a COVID-19 surge. More than 3.6 million Americans are at risk of eviction, some in a matter of days, as nearly $47 billion in federal housing aid to the states durin...

How the left has used COVID-19 to bankrupt the United States

I have never bought the conspiracy theories that COVID-19 was a diabolical political plot to undermine the country. But what is apparent with each passing week is that the virus has been the springboard for the left’s agenda to transform America in a way that Sen. Bernie Sanders, Michael Moore or Rachel Maddow could have never imagined. Without COVID-19, President Joe Biden would never have been elected, of course. So, for the left, the virus defeated former President Donald Trump. COVID-19 is n...

A man who mocked COVID-19 vaccinations died last week at a Riverside County hospital after contracting the coronavirus. Stephen Harmon was 34.

Receiverships and conservatorships are ripe for abuse in California

Pop star Britney Spears shocked the world in June when she begged a Los Angeles court for power over her own life and estate, which her father and a private guardian have controlled since 2008. She cannot even choose her own attorney to fight for her rights. Though Ms. Spears’ story is what made waves in the media, these complicated legal arrangements are not extraordinary—especially in California. And when even the wealthiest Californians cannot escape them, everyday Californians are left with ...

For weeks, Gov. Gavin Newsom has been crisscrossing the state, boasting that California is “roaring back” from the health, social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Monday, however, he had to interrupt his victory lap because a nasty variant of coronavirus, dubbed “delta,” is roaring through the state, just a few weeks after Newsom had lifted personal and economic restrictions. “As of last week, California’s statewide case rate more than quadrupled from a low in May of 1.9 cases (...

U.S. new-home sales unexpectedly fall to lowest since April 2020

By Olivia Rockeman | Bloomberg Sales of new U.S. homes dropped unexpectedly in June to the lowest since April 2020, showing a further weakening in demand against a backdrop of elevated prices and tight supply.
