How Rise of the Resistance virtual queue could change when Disneyland reopens

Thousands of diehard Star Wars fans desperate to secure a “boarding group” spot in the Rise of the Resistance virtual queue each morning could encounter some changes to the reservation process when Disneyland reopens. Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida will once again update the virtual queue reservation process for the wildly popular Rise of the Resistance on Tuesday, Nov. 3. Which raises the obvious question: Will Batuu West deploy the same new virtual queue protocols when Star Wars: Galaxy...

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former Fox News host, has ingratiated herself with the Trump family and become the female face of MAGA.

Herb Wesson, Holly Mitchell battle to become LA County supervisor in 2nd District

LOS ANGELES — Sen. Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, and Los Angeles City Councilman Herb Wesson are splitting progressive support in their bids to replace termed-out Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas in the county’s 2nd District. In the March three-way race that included former Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jan Perry, Wesson picked up 29.9% of the vote to Mitchell’s 29.0%. It is hard to overstate how much things have changed this then, but the November run-off is still closely contested. Early on in t...

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday, Oct. 30, celebrated the opening of a high-tech COVID-19 testing lab in Valencia designed to dramatically increase the state’s coronavirus testing capacity while reducing the turnaround time for processing results.

Symposium: In Fulton, the court has the chance to jettison Employment Division v. Smith – and the pandemic shows why it should take it

This article is part of a symposium previewing Fulton v. City of Philadelphia. Lindsay See is solicitor general of the state of West Virginia, which joined an amicus brief on behalf of 13 states in support of the petitioners. The Supreme Court has options for how to approach this term’s clash between Philadelphia’s foster-placement policies and the religious beliefs of one of its long-standing partners. In Fulton v.

When can Disneyland and other California theme parks exceed 25% capacity?

Recently released state guidelines allow Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and other large California theme parks to reopen at 25% capacity in tier 4 of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s four-tier Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Which raises the question: How long will California theme parks stay at 25% capacity? The answer: Indefinitely. At least, at the moment. “When do I get 50%? When do I get 100%? Never?” Belmont Park General Manager Steve Thomas said. “25% is not something we can survive on.” Sign...

Gavin Newsom versus Mickey Mouse: John Phillips

California Gov. Gavin Newsom recently announced that large Golden State theme parks won’t be re-opening any time soon, and could be closed down until summer of 2021.  To date, these theme parks have already been shut down for seven months. According to reporting from the Wall Street Journal, reaching a “minimal” level of community spread requires California counties to register a seven-day average of less than one new daily case per 100,000 people and an average positive-test rate of less than 2...

American released from Vietnam prison speaks out, describes ordeal

Michael Nguyen said he was “essentially kidnapped.” Pulled off a bus while traveling in Vietnam, he was blindfolded, handcuffed and taken into custody along with three other men. His arrest, on July 6, 2018, was the start of an ordeal that led to 16-hour interrogations, accusations that he attempted to overthrow the Vietnamese government, a four-hour trial and a 12-year prison sentence. Then freedom. Last week, without warning, the 57-year-old Orange County resident was transported from prison t...

California Warns Of Coronavirus Uptick, Names Vaccine Ethics Panel

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California has seen an uptick in coronavirus-related hospitalizations and intensive care admissions in the last two weeks, prompting renewed warnings Tuesday from Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state’s top health official even as newly confirmed cases remain well below the recent surge across much of the nation. While officials set up a panel that will determine who gets vaccinated once one is available, progress remained such that the state allowed seven more counties...

California theme parks to Newsom: Why can’t we reopen?

Disney, Universal and other fed up California theme park operators that have seen their tourist hubs shuttered for more than seven months aimed their fury at Gov. Gavin Newsom and asked a point-blank question: Why can’t we reopen? “Parks have been opened throughout the country and world for months and we have seen no data indicating that COVID outbreaks are being traced back to theme parks,” California Attractions and Parks Association executive director Erin Guerrero said in a statement. “If th...

Disneyland should follow Knott’s Berry Farm’s lead and host food events for now

The best way that California theme parks can show state officials — and skeptical consumers — that they can operate safely is to … operate safely. Knott’s Berry Farm had the right idea two months ago. Take what state and local officials offer you and open in any way that you can. Knott’s reopened its gates for hard-ticket food festivals under state guidelines allowing outdoor dining. Since then in Southern California, SeaWorld San Diego and Legoland California have reopened parts of their theme ...

Gov. Gavin Newsom: Death Penalty Is ‘Infected By Racism’

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California’s process for imposing the death penalty “is now, and always has been, infected by racism,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday in a brief filed with the state Supreme Court. Newsom filed the brief in the case of Donte Lamont McDaniel, who was sentenced to death in 2009 for the murder of 33-year-old George Brooks and 52-year-old Annette Anderson. California juries can impose the death penalty if they find that “aggravating factors” outweigh “mitigating factor...

7 reasons California officials say major theme parks are too risky to reopen right now

Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and other large California theme parks are high-risk settings that could increase exposure to COVID-19 and lead to outbreaks prolonging the coronavirus pandemic, according to state officials. California issued long-awaited theme park reopening guidelines last week, but the new rules could leave small parks closed for weeks or months and major players like Disney and Universal unable to return until early 2021 or next summer.

Fed on housing’s yo-yo: From ‘strong’ to ‘mixed’ to ‘brisk’


The yo-yo effect in the state’s housing market this year has been well chronicled by the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book, the anecdotal economic diary of the central bank. The eight-times-a-year report summarizes local business conditions with reports from the Fed’s 12 regional divisions. The commentary, filled with impressions of local contacts, gives the D.C. policymakers a more Main Street view of the economy. The slice of the report done by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco shows th...

The left wants to cancel Dianne Feinstein

Dianne Feinstein has been a fixture of California politics for 60 years, beginning with an appointment to the state’s then-separate parole board for women. To put that in context, her political career began seven years before Gov. Gavin Newsom was born. From the parole board, Feinstein moved to San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors (city council), to two unsuccessful runs for mayor, to acting mayor when Mayor George Moscone was assassinated in 1978, to two mayoral terms on her own, to an unsucces...

California’s vague new financial regulation law

Assembly Bill 1864 didn’t get much media or public attention as it zipped through both houses of the Legislature on the last day of the 2020 session. Superficially, it appeared merely to reconfigure the state’s financial regulatory agencies into a new entity called the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation. However, those in California’s vast financial industry were paying lots of attention because the bill creates an entirely new regulatory regime with broad powers, including fines ...

Newsom vs. Disney: Pandemic depresses California’s fun businesses

One-third of California’s pandemic job losses can be tied to the decimation of the business of providing fun. Business limitations designed to slow the spread of coronavirus — plus the public’s unease about crowded spaces — has pummeled what had been a job-creation machine: the industries that serve locals and tourists seeking entertainment, lodging and dining. The state’s tough stance on reopening these businesses has led to a very public battle over theme park reopenings. The showdown features...
