President 2012 Obama Jam: Another Fundraising Day and Another Obama Traffic Jam for Los Angeles

Posted on

About three plus hours to go but here is the latest about street closures for this afternoon and tomorrow.

President arrives at 4:45pm at LAX
  • Usually he is helicoptered to the VA from where the motorcade departs
  • He will motorcade across the Westside to  sometime between 5pm and 6pm to two seperate events in Hancock Park – Santa Monica, Sunset, Olympic, Pico, Wilshire are all subject to rolling closures
  • He usually stays at the Beverly Hilton.  So sometime around 9-10pm he’ll probably head back from Hancock Park

Metro has not provided bus advisories yet – but they will release as the afternoon continues.

Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus is alerting riders to delays on routes 1, 2, 3, 8, and 12.

We’re still figuring out the Burbank portion of the trip – but we have received word the actual Tonight Show taping will be at 9am at NBC Studios near Olive and Alameda.  That means Obama will be on the move sometime between 8am and 9am from possibly the Beverly Hilton to Burbank.
Obama is scheduled to leave for San Francisco at noon from LAX.

Good luck out there.

I will be leaving from downtown Los Angeles around 5 PM.

Oh Joy!

President Obama to Paralyze Los Angeles Freeways for Campaign Cash – The Obamajam

President Barack Obama is hugged by a supporter after speaking at a DNC fundraiser at Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco, Calif., Thursday, April 21, 2011. President Obama is making a West Coast trip aimed at building support for his deficit-reduction plans and raising money for his re-election campaign

Good luck West Los Angeles – you will need it.
I suppose there is no way President Obama can lose California in 2012. But he’s giving it a shot tomorrow–attending two fundraisers that, with the usual level of presidential security, promise to immobilize the West Side of Los Angeles during evening rush hour. … P.S.: Some enterprising journalist should tote up the cost of the visit, in terms of lost work hours and productivity, and greenhouse gases emitted by motorists stuck in traffic, and compare it with the amount of money Obama raised. I bet the ratio is more than 100 to 1.

Somehow I think KFI’s John and Ken will be all over Obama this afternoon.

Head on a stick?

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: Has Mirthala Salinas Moved into Getty House?

Getty House is the official residence of the Mayor of Los Angeles

ERS News reports Mirthala and Mayor Villaraigosa are spending alot of time at Getty House, the Mayor’s official residence.

The Mayor’s wife, Corina, and their children reportedly have moved back to the family Mount Washington residence in East Los Angeles.

The Mayor and Ms. Salinas can do what they like but isn’t this a little quick – especially with the Mayor’s divorce pending?

Shoe shopping is one thing but living at the official City Mansion is well – classless.

Update:

Ana Garcia of KNBC Channel 4 Los Angeles has a piece on tonight’s news. She asks the Mayor directly to supply his public records which were requested by Garcia and KNBC News weeks ago and which have been blocked by his attorneys.

The video is here.

Is that Anita Moreno in his security detail attempting to block Ana Garcia from asking the Mayor questions? Or who is it?

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: Water Conservation – Setting an Example

Posted on
Share

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, left, takes questions with Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster during a news conference at the port of Los Angeles in the San Pedro section of Los Angeles, Friday, Aug. 3, 2007. Villaraigosa was to talk about clean-fuel trucks but instead was peppered with questions about the suspension of his girlfriend Telemundo newscaster Mirthala Salinas.

The Los Angeles Times has a piece this morning exposing Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other City of Los Angeles officials as HEAVY water users.

Why is this a surprise?

Mayor Villar needs to shower often to wash off the “stink” of corruption from his scandalous sexual affairs, including the latest one with Telemundo political reporter Mirthala Salinas.

Enough said.

Update:

Kevin faults the City Attorney, Rocky Delgadillo for NOT paying his water bill.  This is easily explainable:

He delegated it to his wife.
