Los Angeles City Council Has Voted To Name Hotels That Won’t House Homeless, Might ‘Commandeer’ Them

Published

on

The Los Angeles city council made a rather scary vote on Wednesday that should have anyone who is a believer in freedom very, very nervous. A vote was held to identify certain hotels that were refusing to use spare rooms to house the homeless during the COVID-19 crisis, noting these establishments might be “commandeered.”

That’s a really nice way of saying forcibly taken over at gun point by the government. Tyranny truly is beginning to rear its ugly head, in broad daylight, in light of the coronavirus crisis. It’s as if the left has been waiting for a nightmare scenario like this to show their true colors.

Here’s more on this from Fox News:

Only 1,582 people have been placed in hotels, far short of the city’s goal of housing 15,000, FOX 11 in Los Angeles reported.

“Each hotel brings new hope, each room could save a life,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said of Project Roomkey, according to KABC-TV.

“If hotels are making a distinction among people classifying housed and unhoused differently in terms of accommodations that they’re going to be repaid for, that the city and county will pay for with reimbursements, then I think there’s a potential civil rights violation,” Councilman Mike Bonin said. “If the problems are on the hotel end, the public should know why, and then we should consider commandeering as they’ve talked about in other cities.”

The council is also planning to look into whether or not the hotels refusing to house the homeless have received tax breaks from the city in recent years.

This motion was co-authored by Bonin and goes on to say that some of the hotels have been “unwilling to participate, reneged on initial interest, citing security concerns, liability issues, objections from corporate management or fear of lost revenue from being branded a ‘homeless hotel.”

Councilman Mitch O’Farrel looks at the giving of tax breaks to these establishments as a sort of “scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” scenario, stating that it seems completely justified for the local government to expect something back from the hotels in exchange for these tax breaks.

Hmmm. That sounds just a touch shady.

One of the hotels resisting this move by the local government is the Ritz Carlton located in downtown Los Angeles. The hotel has been the recipient of millions of dollars in tax breaks from the city over the years.

In-N-Out Burger Tells San Fran They Won’t Enforce Vax Proof Mandates

The government’s expectation that fast food workers should enforce a mandate they didn’t ask for is ludicrous on its face.

For many Americans, there is a very unnerving feeling when it comes to the idea of having to prove your vaccination status in order to participate in the everyday machinations of society.  It feels icky, as though our ideas of freedom and equality are somehow variable and malleable.

Sure, you have the freedom to refuse a vaccine, but that choice is going to make you a second-class citizen in a great many ways, ranging from potentially losing your job as a police officer, to being unable to eat inside at your favorite fast food joint.

It’s that latter issue that has the higher-ups at In-N-Out Burger growing irate.

The city of San Francisco temporarily closed an In-N-Out fast-food restaurant over the company’s refusal to force customers to prove they are vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health closed the Fisherman’s Wharf In-N-Out location on Oct. 14 after the popular burger joint did not check the vaccination status of customers, which violates an August mandate from the city requiring indoor diners to show proof of vaccination.

The restaurant’s corporate team was irate over the entire debacle.

“Our store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements,” In-N-Out Burger’s Chief Legal and Business Officer, Arnie Wensinger said in a statement to Fox News. “After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any Customers without the proper documentation.”

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” Wensinger declared, slamming the San Francisco Department of Health’s requirements as “unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe” and accusing the city of asking restaurants to “segregate Customers” based on vaccine documentation.

Given the violence and vitriol that we’ve seen in some instances of attempted vaccine-proof enforcement, there are likely very few entry-level fast food workers who are qualified to handle such situations, which could open these corporations up to serious legal liabilities.

Items Belonging to Brian Laundrie Discovered as Medical Examiner Arrives on Scene

This is HUGE news!

Published

on

After several long and tedious weeks of searching, there may finally be a break in the case of Brian Laundrie, a fugitive who is the single person of interest in the death of Gabby Petito.

Laundrie disappeared shortly before Petito’s body was found in Bridger-Teton National Forest, near a campsite that the two visited during a cross country road trip before Brian returned home alone and refused to cooperate with authorities.

Then, much to the dismay of investigators, Brian went hiking in the Carlton Reserve near his Florida home and never returned.

Now, investigators at a different section of the wildlife area have discovered items believed to belong to Brian, calling in his family – and a medical examiner – to the scene.

Chris and Roberta Laundrie, the parents of fugitive Brian Laundrie, ventured into Florida’s Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park early Wednesday morning, where Fox News Digital saw an officer apparently tell parents that law enforcement “might have found something.”

Steven Bertolino, who represents the Laundrie family, confirmed to Fox News Digital that the Laundries informed law enforcement last night of their intentions to search the park and met officers there. Bertolino confirmed that while searching areas that Brian frequented, “some articles belonging to Brian were found.”

And also:

Officers are now conducting a more thorough search of the area, Bertolino said. A spokesperson for the Sarasota County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the office was called to the Myakkahatchee on Wednesday, but would not say anything more.

The search for Brian Laundrie has drawn national attention in recent weeks, as Americans continue to clamor for justice for Gabby Petito.
