Garcetti walked the tightrope again on this one. He publicly had soothing words for BLM about police abuse and even hinted that he would explore cuts in the LAPD’s budget. However, when the dust cleared the LAPD as usual got every penny it asked for and then some. Whether that could be chalked up as a success or failure for Garcetti was subject to interpretation. However, it was clear Garcetti would not be remembered by police reform advocates as their champion.

When she was sworn in as the first woman Speaker of the House in 2007, she noted that women had waited more than 200 years to shatter the “marble ceiling” of Congress.

That’s my Thanksgiving wish, as well as my Thanksgiving advice. My two annual Turkey Day winners need to put their egos aside and do what’s best for America. Trump/DeSantis is the GOP dream team.

At this point, Biden’s isn’t doing anything about it – but, oh yes, he is doing something related. His office of Refugee Resettlement just ordered that illegal-immigrant children in federal custody must be allowed access to abortions – including being moved to states that are “abortion friendly.”
