Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Thursday

President Obama will visit, but won't speak at Ground Zero today; He plans to just lay a wreath. White House says "the power of that requires no words". George "I could really care less about finding Osama" Bush was invited to attend today's ceremony, but declined to participate.

California Redevelopment Agencies are trying to re-brand themselves in a desperate attempt to stay alive after Gov Brown has called for their termination. First order of business, the heartstrings maneuver; promise more money for school kids!

I had the privilege of spending a good portion of yesterday working with several City & County agencies to clean out numerous homeless camps in the Tujunga Wash. Thanks to the efforts of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and Los Angeles Family Housing (LAFH) we were able to secure alternative housing for 6 individuals. My personal thanks to LAPD Senior Lead Officer Larry Martinez for overseeing and coordinating this effort, with assistance from Senior Lead Officer Rich Wall, and to Councilman Paul Krekorian and his, as always, amazing staff. In this case, CD2 staffers Jackie Keene and Heather O'Conner, for their instrumental efforts in making this project happen. Big thanks to DWP Police, General Services Police, Dept of Mental Health Services, People in Progress, Street Services, and Dept of Sanitation. Wow, great work everyone, thank you so much!
You can read my take on this huge undertaking (so huge, we have to come back in 2 weeks to finish it) and check out some photos from today, over at The Foothills Forum.

KCET has released a comprehensive and fascinating Field Guide to the Los Angeles River. A must read for all LA River aficionados.

It just gets weirder by the day: Tour guide, birthday party clown, homophobe, eternal last place candidate, and a guy that doesn't have a clue about oil supplies or pricing, Phil Jennerjahn, has a new passion; STALKING Paris Hilton.

We salute and say goodbye to Claude Stanley Choules, the last known combat veteran of WW1, who passed away today in Perth, Australia at the age of 110. He was quite a guy!

This just in; France legalizes absinthe. Don't tell you know who!

Morning, Joe.

Have you seen the latest three MORONIC posts by political wannabe fame-seeker Phil Jennerjahn?

1. His cybersquatting various URLs he thinks that James Andion might buy.

2. His obsession and stalking of Paris Hilton.

3. His alleged decades old run in with Scott Baio.

Is anyone surprised to hear that he is an anti-Semite too?

if Obama doesn't release the death photos, "noone" is going to believe that Obama is dead.

he should have released them from the get-go, or not tease the public that the photos exist.

another presidential misstep by BHO.

Obama is getting slammed for his administration's giving Bin Laden the code name "Geronimo."

Joe, please ask Higby what he thinks of Phil's latest childish rant about getting James Andion's url addresses, as if Andion plans to run, and as if Phil can afford to squander $24.

For god's sake, he doesn't even own a car!

But I have to admit that his Paris Hilton post is a new low for him. If people hated Phil before, they loathe him now.

Phil, if you're reading this, you are now officially and permanently a CREEP!

I'm sensing some hypocrisy on your part.

You were & are against waterboarding because it's torture, yet you're celebratory and cool with shooting someone in the face?

Why do you folks on this blog link to Phil Jennerjahn? We all know he's a moron, liar, pervert, stalker, Jew-hater and creep with zero politicla influence or future.

So why drive more traffic to his blog?

Who else but obama could screw up the handling of the death of Bin Laden...
did he have gun, yes, maybe, well eh, no.
did he use his wife as a shield, yes, maybe, eh, no.
Pakistan helped, well maybe not.
waterboarding is bad and I am going to stop them when elected, isn't that what he said... hmmmm... turns out while Obama was pretending to be smart, W. and his team we're being adults and building the intelligence infrastructure that led to UBL.

I don't see Bush and his team parading on TV back slapping themselves for doing such... But Obama needs the boost.

2006 Pelosi said catching UBL was inconsequential... today... it's a big deal and Obama should be ball washed, I mean back slapped, for his hard work.

Joe... last question, since we now know waterboarding works and Obama approves, when's he going to close Guantanimo?

Well, at least he's following the time line W set for getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

(In case you haven't been able to figure it out Joe- there's NO DIFFERENCE BET W & 44 WHEN IT COMES TO AFGHANISTAN, IRAQ, UBL, AND INTELLIGENCE GATHERING)

There is no place for the brand of hatred, anti Semitism or any other type of hatred that Phil Jennerjahn carries with him each day.

But please don't direct traffic to his idiotic rants. It only fuels his immaturity. Imagine, a guy in his mid 40s, telling us about Paris Hilton, photographic her car, or almost getting into a fight with Baio. What man in his mid 40s tells people that he has "been in a lot of fights?"

Only Phil Jennerjahn. It's shocking that he's unaware of how this makes people see him.

I would love to hear Higby's thoughts on this, since he's such a big Phil Jennerjahn fan.

The fact that Phil gets as much attention on this board on Osama bin Laden and President Obama combined is scary.

He must be really powerful and someone who is threatening to someone.

Naw, Phil's just like watching a daily train wreck. Entertainment, that's all.

yeah... we read Jennerjahn's stalker missive and are somewhat horrified.

Can you say WHACK JOB? Knew you could. But this isn't exactly news now, is it?

Phil IS a train wreck, for sure.

And now, this guy with the dubious income (read: trust fund baby)posts a dumbass clip of himself teeing off.

People who can golf midweek mornings are trust fund babies. Phil will never admit it, but it's fairly obvious.

Your "smart" friend Phil Jennerjahn is really melting down today.

The latest dumbass post is what he wrote to Obama, as if BHO gives a crap about what Phil is running for.

"I am running for Congress in 2012, and am deeply concerned about a government that has grown arrogant towards the people. If you do not release the Bin Laden photo in the next 72 hours, I plan to file a Federal lawsuit seeking its release as a public document."
