Reported 81 million vote recipient Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff were greeted by all of two supporters when the couple returned to their Los Angeles home in Brentwood on a sunny Friday afternoon for the first time since Harris was sworn in as vice president last month.

Video taken by a local reporter shows an older couple standing in the curb lane waving while holding an American flag and a Biden-Harris campaign sign as Harris’ motorcade drove by. The video shows no one else on the street except for a news videographer filming the motorcade.

Video posted to Twitter by Alex Biston with CBSLA and KCAL9:

Harris has no public events planned and is reportedly spending the weekend packing for her expected four-year stay in D.C.

In contrast to Harris’ sparsely attended welcome home reception, President Trump–who received 74 million votes in the contested results of the November election–was greeted by thousands of cheering supporters in West Palm Beach, Florida last Monday for a Washington’s Birthday – President’s Day street-side rally as his motorcade drove by taking the former president to his home at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach.

    Just wait until the Biden Administration taps into their savings/retirement funds. We’ll check back with them to get an update.

  • Those people are wondering to themselves what did we get ourselves into. Trump isn’t even president and he still gets more attention than Harris, Biden or anyone else in government can. Harris is a sad person who shouldn’t be here since she dropped out of the race. Just like the greeting empty like Harris is

    How many of those darned limos, all paid for by the taxpayers, do they need to escort them home? I counted 8 and there looked like more coming. This is a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money.

    New Details Emerge in Tiger Woods Crash

    Published

    on

    Tiger Woods almost crashed into a car driven by the director of “Grown-ish” minutes before his near-fatal crash that left him hospitalized with multiple leg injuries on Tuesday.

    According to “Grown-ish” crew member Oliver Konteh, the TV show’s director arrived to set shortly before 7 a.m. on Tuesday claiming that Woods, 45, came close to striking his vehicle.

    “He was like, ‘Yeah, you know what? I almost got in an accident with f–king Tiger Woods. He almost hit me,'” Konteh quoted his director, who has not been identified, to TMZ.

    The “Grown-ish” crew members have been staying at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes — the same resort as Woods. It was there Konteh claimed his director saw Woods and described the athlete appearing “agitated and impatient” as his vehicle was blocked by another before he “took off fast.”

    Konteh recalled crew members “laughing it off” when the director first discussed the near accident with Woods. “I didn’t even believe him, to be honest with you,” Konteh continued. “That’s what we heard. It was early in the morning. Everyone’s kind of tired. Plus, it’s also Tiger Woods, that’s a well known name.”

    In a statement to Fox News on Wednesday, a rep for Terranea Resort said: “Terranea respects the privacy of its guests and visitors. At this time, we are not able to share any details nor confirm any information related to this incident. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tiger Woods and his loved ones, we wish him a healthy and speedy recovery.”

    The pro golfer suffered serious leg injuries in a horrific rollover car crash Tuesday morning and is now awake and recovering in Los Angeles’ Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

    The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department later released a statement, saying Woods crashed at around 7:12 a.m. local time. TMZ Sports obtained a video showing Woods driving the Genesis SUV up a hill at what appeared to be a relatively normal speed and in control.

    A statement was put out on Woods’ Twitter account late Tuesday giving an update on his condition, saying he was awake and responsive.

    Dr. Anish Mahajan, chief medical officer and interim CEO of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, said Woods is recovering from a long surgical procedure to repair “significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity.”

    “Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia,” said Mahajan. “Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins.”

    “Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling,” he continued.

    A camera caught Tiger Woods driving in a Los Angeles County neighborhood on a curvy and winding road moments before he crashed.

    Athletes, politicians and celebrities from across the sports world reacted to Woods’ injury in the immediate aftermath.

    Texas Judge Bans Enforcement Of Biden 100-Day Deportation Freeze ‘Indefinitely’

    Published

    on

    A Texas judge issued a stunning blow to the Biden administration Wednesday, “indefinitely” enjoining the White House from enforcing the president’s executive order declaring a 100-day moratorium on deportations.

    As The Daily Wire reported Tuesday, the same federal judge, Judge Drew Tipton, already issued a temporary ban on enforcing President Joe Biden’s executive order, noting that the administration failed “to provide any concrete, reasonable justification for a 100-day pause on deportations.”

    “This preliminary injunction is granted on a nationwide basis and prohibits enforcement and implementation of the [100-day pause] in every place Defendants have jurisdiction to enforce and implement the January 20 Memorandum,” Judge Tipton wrote in the 105-page order released Wednesday morning.

    “A federal judge last week ordered the Biden administration not to enforce a 100-day moratorium on deportations, but the ruling did not require the government to schedule them,” The Associated Press noted. “In recent days, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has deported immigrants to at least three countries: 15 people to Jamaica on Thursday and 269 people to Guatemala and Honduras on Friday. More deportation flights were scheduled Monday.”

    In fact, according to immigration activists, deportations have continued largely unabated, partly because while the Biden administration issued the executive order as a way of distancing itself from the Trump administration’s hard-line on illegal immigration, it did not lift a separate Trump-era provision allowing ICE to “expel” certain illegal immigrants seeking asylum rather than go through a formal deportation process, under the theory that unscreened individuals from other countries are a threat to public health because they could be carrying COVID-19.

    On Wednesday, Judge Tipton sided with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who challenged the executive order, saying that not only did the Biden administration provide no justification for a temporary moratorium on deportations, but that such a moratorium would place a significant financial burden on the state of Texas, which would become responsible for housing and handling deportees.

    “Paxton’s office argued the state would face financial harm if undocumented immigrants were released into the state because of costs associated with health care and education, and he said the moratorium would also lure others to Texas,” according to the Texas Tribune.

    “Texas claimed injury from unanticipated detention costs is sufficiently concrete and imminent. The harm is concrete or de facto because Texas incurs real financial costs in detaining criminal aliens,” Tipton said in his order.

    Tipton also chastised the Biden administration for failing to consider other ways of halting deportations that would not place such a burden on state governments.

    “[T]he core failure of DHS lies not in the brevity of the January 20 Memorandum or the corresponding administrative record, but instead in its omission of a rational explanation grounded in the facts reviewed and the factors considered,” Tipton said, per Politico. “This failure is fatal, as this defect essentially makes DHS’s determination to institute a 100-day pause on deportations an arbitrary and capricious choice.”

    Ultimately, the ruling ends the 100-day deportation moratorium unless the Biden administration appeals Tipton’s order to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, a process that could take longer than a month, effectively rendering the issue moot.

    NRA Sues New York AG, Says She Targeted Group for Political Purposes

    Published

    on

    The National Rifle Association is countersuing New York Attorney General Letitia James for an investigation it views as politically motivated.

    James sued the nonprofit and chief executive Wayne LaPierre last year over expenditures ranging from trips to contracts.

    “James commenced her investigations and this action against the NRA with the sole purpose of seeking to dissolve a political enemy,” the pro-Second Amendment group said, according to Reuters.

    The group filed for bankruptcy in January and is planning on moving its New York office to Texas.

    Additionally, there will be a hearing in Dallas on March 29 regarding James’ requests for a court to have oversight over the NRA’s financial affairs.

    “The @NRA’s claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt. While we review its bankruptcy filing, we will not allow the @NRA to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight,” James tweeted last month.

    Filing for bankruptcy is a common tactic used by organizations and individuals to avoid legal action pertaining to finances, but James’ decision to go after the NRA in the first place is under heavy scrutiny.

    “In the wake of violent tragedies, amid a polarized political landscape, a candidate for the New York State Office of the Attorney General made a stunning campaign promise,” the countersuit’s preliminary statement explained.

    “If elected, James said, she would ‘take down the NRA’ — not by refuting its policy positions or by advocating for gun control legislation, but by wielding the powers of the NYAG to dismantle the NRA as a not-for-profit corporation.”

    The NRA wields massive wields lobbying and voting power in federal and state governments, making it one of the most notable interest groups in the United States.

    It makes sense that James would use cracking down on the NRA as a campaign promise, especially because Democrats tend to support gun control.

    The NRA is frequently but baselessly accused of enabling mass shootings, as the organization is known for objecting to legislation that would regulate firearms.

    Regardless of the merit the lawsuit against the NRA has, it is crystal clear that the origins of the litigation are rooted in politics.

    Obama Reveals Why He Didn’t Seek Reparations for Black Americans

    Published

    on

    Former President Barack Obama blamed “the politics of White resistance and resentment” as the reason why he didn’t push financial reparations for Black Americans during his presidency.

    On Monday, Obama and rock and roll legend Bruce Springsteen released the second episode of their new podcast, “Renegades: Born in the USA,” where they spoke about race relations in the United States.

    Toward the end of the episode, the two hosts spoke about reparations to Black Americans and whether or not the controversial policy would come to fruition.

    Obama said he believes reparations are “justified” and that “there’s not much question that the wealth… the power of this country was built in significant part — not exclusively, maybe not even the majority of it, but a large portion of it — was built on the backs of slaves.”

    The former president claimed that a reparations proposal didn’t make its way through the lawmaking process during his presidency due to “the politics of White resistance and resentment.”

    “And what I saw during my presidency was the politics of White resistance and resentment. The talk of ‘welfare queens’ and the talk of the ‘undeserving’ poor. And the backlash against affirmative action,” Obama said.

    “All that made the prospect of actually proposing any kind of coherent, meaningful reparations program struck me as, politically, not only a nonstarter but potentially counterproductive.”

    Obama went on to say it was “perfectly understandable why working-class White folks, middle-class White folks, folks who are having trouble paying the bills or dealing with student loans, wouldn’t be too thrilled” about the prospect of “a massive program that is designed to deal with the past but isn’t speaking to their future.”

    Obama appears to have changed his position on reparations over the years. He opposed reparations during his 2008 presidential campaign, arguing that “the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed.”

    Bills regarding reparations have been introduced to Congress for over three decades, with the most recent being a proposal from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas.

    Jackson Lee introduced H.R. 40 to the House of Representatives, which aims to set up the Committee to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans. According to the bill’s summary, the committee “shall examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies.”

    President Biden hasn’t endorsed reparations outright, but he has voiced his support for forming a commission to study the issue. White House press secretary Jen Psaki reaffirmed this position last week to reporters.
