American sheriff in Los Angeles County, California
EPISODE 77: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) SPECIAL COMMENT: God what a terrible speech! Trump's official declaration he's running was so bad Fox News bailed out of it! And CNN bailed out of it! And Mick Mulvaney trashed it. And two ex-Trump Press Secretaries. AND DURING IT IVANKA TRUMP ANNOUNCED SHE'S LEAVING POLITICS! (5:00) The mainstream GOP continues to distance itself; Fox News lists 13 GOP presidential possibilities - none of them are Trump (5:40) Chris Christie trashes Trump to GOP Governors conference, gets applauded (8:30) These are not moral judgments, not patriotic ones, not decency ones, not pro-democracy ones. But these people have the survival instincts of cockroaches and somebody just flipped on every kitchen light in America (8:40) Even crazy Wendy Rogers in Arizona is wondering if she's been living in an echo chamber (11:15) And yet there's just enough loyalists to remain to make sure if the GOP can keep Trump at bay, he'll run as a third party candidate in 2024. They were the ones outside Trump Tower yesterday screaming "Trump or Death" - to which we say "OFFER ACCEPTED!" B-Block (15:31) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: Elsa in Brooklyn (16:26) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: Latest on the Russian missile or rocket that hit Poland; (18:14) IN SPORTS: Angels with their annual dubious free agency signing; Richard Nixon's alma mater ends 107 years of football; and the merchandisers of the NBA finally outsmart themselves (22:03) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Republicans keeping 50-99% of what they raise for Herschel Walker and Fox's Kevin Corke are no match for Worst Persons Hall of Famer Bill O'Reilly - he's baaaack! C-Block (26:43) THINGS I PROMISED NOT TO TELL: O'Reilly's contretemps with the "News Nation" channel reminded me Dan Abrams has a show there, on the cable tv news version of 'Nick-At-Nite.' And THAT reminded me of the day MSNBC tried to switch the disrespected Abrams from hosting its unpopular 9 PM show, to being network General Manager. After the staff stopped laughing, it wound up being worse than we could have dreamed. Within ONE WEEK management had reassured us he would be fired. He became a Lame Duck in ONE WEEK!

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has lost his reelection bid to his opponent, Robert Luna, who continued to hold a commanding lead as the vote count continued. Reporter: Saul Gonzalez, KQED As votes continue to be tallied, it's looking like Californians are on track to elect the most diverse legislature in state history. As many as 52 female candidates could take office once all the votes are counted. Eight LGBTQ candidates are also on track for election. Reporter: Ariel Gans, CalMatters Activists in Los Angeles say they've noticed a pattern. When a restaurant offering, say, $30 entrees, opens in a working class neighborhood, rents start to rise faster, there are more evictions, and long-time locals are forced to leave. Some restaurants are now trying hard to limit their impact on gentrification. But is it enough? Or will their presence always be problematic? Reporter: Megan Jamerson, KCRW
Wayne Resnick and Jennifer Jones Lee accompany Bill for the Early Edition of Handel on the News. The three of them discuss news topics that include: Former President Donald Trump has announced his candidacy for a second term in the White House, Karen Bass continues to expand her lead for LA Mayor, and Alex Villanueva has conceded the election to his competitor Robert Luna to become the next LA County Sheriff.
SPECIAL EPISODE 65: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) SPECIAL COMMENT: This was an assassination attempt. It was meant to be the execution of the Speaker of the House, 11 days before the midterms. It was a political crime, an act of domestic terrorism, an extension of the January 6th coup, the full expression of a new mantra of a political party gone insane, the culmination of the cult of Donald Trump (3:18) And THIS MUST BE SAID NOW by the Democratic leaders and media now cowering behind bothsidesism and electoral mediocrity (4:23) And it must be said by President Biden: that the attempted assassination of Nancy Pelosi was an attack on the government of the United States, inspired by the GOP, MAGA, and Trump. And Biden must also say: IT STOPS HERE. (7:25) Democrats must also push back on the GOP filth who actually tried to dismiss this as a random break-in, like Ronna McDaniel, Glenn Youngkin, and the journalistic whores of Fox News, Newsmax, and others (11:53) And I want to have the conversation about POTUS' emergency powers - big and small (12:42) Because after a week in which Trump threatened to have reporters raped, thugs maced students, militia stalked ballot drop boxes, antisemitism and pro-Putin propaganda was rewarded, and now an assassination attempt - this country is under attack. Friday it was life and death for the Pelosis. Now, it is life and death for the rest of us. B-Block (17:38) FRIDAY'S SPECIAL COMMENT: 90 months for a 1/6 Insurrectionist and 1/6 Committee pursuit of Secret Service turncoats. But two years after the coup and not one insurrectionist politician, stochastic terrorist, or Trump is in jail (18:45) As the midterms loom we must act as if democracy is already lost and we are trying to fire up an electorate - and candidates - who might get it back (22:25) We are betrayed by two supposedly liberal institutions: the political infrastructure and the media, yet CBS, CNN, New York Times, others, are still hedging their bets, ready to protect their profits in case Full Fascism comes to this country (28:00) Instead of making a plain case: Republicans = Fascists, Democrats = Destroyers of Fascism, we are trying to hide under euphemisms and appeasement and fear. (33:40) We have nothing to fear but fear itself. But to paraphrase to FDR but my late friend Bill Hurt in "Body Heat," "Sometimes the fear comes down so heavy I feel like I should wear a hat." C-Block (36:47) FRIDAYS WITH JAMES THURBER: Dog lover Thurber's lovable dog story about an unlovable dog that if you're a dog lover, you'll just love. It's "The Dog That Bit People."

Alex Villanueva has been a Los Angeles County Sheriff since 2011, after defeating former Sheriff Lee Baca. What's his plan to regain the public's trust? He is implementing new policies, including a plan to cut back on overtime. He's also cracking down on the abuse of civil forfeiture laws, which allow law enforcement to seize property from suspected criminals and keep the proceeds. Why is he taking these steps? Public trust in law enforcement has been declining since the rampart scandal of the late 1990s. He is also tackling a problem with deputies who feel they can't be honest with supervisors about misconduct because of fear that they would lose their jobs. Alex holds degrees from the California State University, Long Beach and the Western State University College of Law. He is also an Eagle Scout. What does he plan to do in office? He has promised to reopen unsolved murder cases and make sure that victims' families are compensated as well as fight for stricter penalties for domestic violence offenders.

By the end of 2021, Alex Villanueva has done a 180. Once supported by the local Democratic party, he's become a darling of Fox News. Instead of working closely with immigration activists, he's proposing a military-style approach to clear all the unhoused off the streets. He's won the intense loyalty of the overwhelming majority of his deputies, but lots of people who voted for him in 2018 have changed their minds. Villanueva now faces an uphill fight to win another four years in office. Support LAist Today: https://LAist.com/donate

There's a lot to unpack when it comes to Alex Villanueva's path to becoming the top cop in Los Angeles County. And that's exactly what LAist Studios and KPCC do in a new five-part podcast series hosted by Frank Stoltze. Today, we play episode 1 of “Imperfect Paradise: Sheriff.”The show begins with a scene of a very strange press conference: Villanueva is threatening to open a criminal investigation into L.A. Times reporter Alene Tchekmedyian and Stoltze questions the sheriff about it. From there, Stoltze reflects on his time covering policing in L.A. County and explains how Villanueva is the product of a department that has been riddled with scandals for decades: racial profiling, jail violence and deputy gangs.Host: Frank StoltzeMore reading:Your guide to the L.A.

This week, we bring you the first episode of the new season of a podcast from LAist Studios called Imperfect Paradise: The Sheriff. KPCC correspondent Frank Stoltze explores how a former Sheriff's lieutenant with almost no leadership experience rose to become the head of the largest law enforcement agency west of the Mississippi, and how he turned out to be a leader with authoritarian tendencies. Alex Villanueva, a longshot maverick candidate, ran for LA County Sheriff as a progressive reformer and won, surprising everyone. After taking office in 2018, he mocked reform, resisted oversight, and launched criminal investigations of his enemies. Now, the people who propelled him to power are looking to boot him from office in this year's election.
Adam and Mark reconvene to discuss the resignation this morning of Nury Martinez from her post as Los Angeles City Council President following the release of audio from a meeting where she is heard making racist remarks.

When retired Lt. Alex Villanueva announces his candidacy for sheriff in 2017, no one takes him seriously. But with the support of the local Democratic party, immigrant rights activists, and lots of political savvy, he pulls off a shocking defeat of the sitting sheriff – something that hasn't happened in over 100 years. Almost as soon as he takes office, Villanueva re-hires a former deputy (and friend) who was fired for domestic violence and lying, and things begin to go off the rails.

Protests are raging in Iran and across the world this week in response to 22-year-old Mahsa Amini's death in police custody. She was arrested for not properly wearing her hijab. Wednesday night's debates were heated between LA County sheriff candidates Robert Luna and Alex Villanueva, plus mayoral hopefuls Karen Bass and Rick Caruso. Nearly a year has passed since cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed while filming “Rust.” The incident is still under investigation. Critics review the latest film releases: “Don't Worry Darling,” “Catherine, Called Birdy,” “The Justice of Bunny King,” and “Sidney.” Caponata is the sweet and sour Sicilian vegetable dish that's an ode to the eggplant. It's great as part of a charcuterie board or on own as a starter served with crackers.

L.A. Claps Back: the KBLA Delegation Responds to Sheriff Alex Villanueva and Chief Robert Luna the Two Men Vying to Be L.A. County Sheriff
LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl goes on the offensive, slamming the search of her home by sheriff's investigators as a politically motivated act by the sheriff himself--Alex Villanueva--who's had several conflicts with the Board of Supervisors. A court affidavit shows the search is connected to non-competitive contracts awarded by Metro to a nonprofit organization run by a friend of Kuehl's. We go In Depth to sort this out with Sheriff Villanueva. Working from home, higher rent and sky high home prices are just some of the impacts the pandemic has had around the country. We look into the results of a big new survey. Russia and China are getting closer.

Record inflation means the prices Angelenos pay for locally-made food are headed in one direction — up. Businesses that serve the budget-conscious really notice. And looking to November, Rick Caruso and Karen Bass both say they're in good positions to win as LA mayor, while political watchers say Alex Villanueva will have a tough fight to remain sheriff.
The primary election is over and now it's onto November. As expected, the LA Mayor's race is now down to two candidates--Rick Caruso and Karen Bass. Caruso got more votes yesterday but Bass wasn't far behind. We go In Depth into what to expect between now and November. That's not the only race of interest here in the LA area. LA County sheriff Alex Villanueva will be in a runoff. Many statewide races may not be competitive in November but some House seats will be and that could play a role in whether Republicans take control of Congress. Voter turnout was about as low as it's ever been. We look into why. The victims of disgraced sports and gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar have now filed claims against the FBI.

Eric Strong wants Alex Villanueva's role as Sheriff and he wants you to vote for him June 7. The Sheriff's Lieutenant sits down with me to discuss his career in law enforcement that spans almost 3 decades when Strong got his start working with (then) Compton Police Department in 1993. Some of the issues we touch on are the apathy that surrounds Black communities and our disconnect from local and national politics especially that of law enforcement. Strong speaks on issues he views as hindering to building community trust, his plans to address and eradicate gangs in the department, having a spouse who also works with the Sheriff's, and why he feels that he is the best to represent L.A County in one of the top positions in law enforcement.

Early release, due to tomorrow being Martin Luther King Day. I'm releasing a Bonus Episode on the holiday to honor him. Whether you live in Los Angeles, or see it in the news, there is mayhem in the city. The sheriff discusses the homeless crisis, rise in crime, and cleaning up Venice Beach. This is an eye-opening discussion and an inside look at what is really going on. It was my choice to mention George Floyd, the protests, Rodney King, and Black Lives Matter. I believe the sheriff's input about these moments in history is an important part of the conversation. I also believe other voices on the matter are important and I would love to bring anyone on as a guest who has something to say, as I do not want to speak for anyone. It is my hope that this episode will, in some way, help repair a city that I care deeply about. Thank you for listening.
