Traffic congestion in Los Angeles is expected to be a little bit worse than usual this Friday thanks to presidential company. President Barack Obama is touching down for three and a half hours for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Santa Monica at the home of entertainment executive Peter Chernin.

In case anyone is interested, admission is $10,000 and the price for lunch and a photo-op is $16,200. Add on another $16,200 (the maximum allowable contribution to a party committee in a calendar year) and you get to engage in a "special discussion" and be promoted to luncheon co-chair.

The June trip will mark Obama's 14th to the L.A. area since taking office. After lunch, he'll be heading over to Rancho Mirage for a discussion on North Korea's nuclear program and Chinese cyberattacks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Here are the streets to steer clear of:

  • Centinela Avenue and West Olympic Boulevard, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30
    a.m., and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
  • West Olympic Boulevard and Cloverfield Boulevard from 9:30 a.m. to
    11:30 a.m., and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.; and
  • 26th Street and San Vicente Boulevard in the Brentwood Park area,
    from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

California Tribes Support Each Other and Seek Inclusion in State Wildfire Response

State agencies' lack of familiarity with Native lands has often led to interference with tribal evacuation efforts and unnecessary destruction of culturally sensitive habitat.
