Time to declare war on homelessness!

Federal Judge orders Los Angeles to provide housing to all 66,000 homeless people on area streets by October 18; Unaccompanied women and children must be offered housing within 90 days; Lethargy of city’s response cited; Mayor Garcetti’s budget has already earmarked $1 billion to provide shelter, and Biden’s Rescue Plan will add $100 million or more; Powell of Fed should pitch in with 0% long term credit; 

Seizing empty and bankrupt hotels and motels to accommodate needy is obvious first step, followed by medical services; 1,383 died during 2020, with 5 more succumbing every day; Ignore inhuman GOP critics, now that Federal District Judge Carter has ruled!

Positive Chauvin verdict opens door to sweeping reforms in police and justice practice; US needs economic justice through job creation in inner cities and rural America; GOP isolated;

Putin, facing national opposition with Navalny near death, absurdly alleges that NATO is threatening him via Ukraine; Despot Xi regales BARF confab with lies and platitudes; But Australia cuts off deals Xi had recently extorted; Premier Draghi of Italy blocks Beijing’s grab of semiconductor firm Lpe; Lebanon inclines to Franco-German proposal, not Xi, to rebuild Beirut
