    I hope they find a motive for this atrocity. It’s often such a mystery.

    It´s starting to look like this ¨deplatforming¨ tactic is not a left on right thing, but a far-left on everyone thing.

    The protesters, who were organized by the Los Angeles Community Action Network and the Los Angeles chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, resorted to shouting over Garcetti so that he could not continue his speech — a tactic known as “deplatforming” that has been commonly employed against speakers deemed controversial by campus activists.

    As Garcetti tried to respond to each complaint individually, the protesters tried to drown him out by singing a revised rendition of “Santa Claus is Coming Town.”

    “You better watch out, you better not cry, Eric Garcetti is telling us lies, human rights violations happening now,” they sang.

    Garcetti tried to quiet the crowd by citing his first amendment rights, but was unsuccessful.“Do you respect 1st Amendment rights, do you?” Garcetti said to a one man who refused to listen to his response.

    Just when you think things can't get any weirder... the National Enquirer makes a deal to tell all regarding payments and other activities related to Individual-1.

    I can't take anything the National Enquirer says seriously. But somebody has to be reading it, they're still in business... and apparently not on the President's side.

    Given their constituency - and that group's likely political orientation - this just might be the beginning of the end of the Enquirer. (I was always fonder of the "Weekly World News" - example headline: "Dinosaurs Still Roam the Earth!")
