      It is absolutely mind boggling the regulations that were put in place that hurt everyday Americans that would use that water for so many things. If it weren’t for our President, this issue would never be resolved. When a President put Americans before lobbyists, Environmentalists etc. you can literally move mountains!

      And it is going to be a huge wrench to the globalists plan.
      Obama did everything to sabotage and ruin the average farmers so that his glibalist corporate masters could by the farmland for pennies on the dollar.

      +he is preventing the staged drought catastrophy
      as a population that is increasing so fast due to illegal immigration
      is needing much more water for all those people.
      Now democrats can no longer pretend to be the saviours to help you out of the mess they created.
      Though i am pretty sure that democrats will try to sabotage Trump plans whereever they can(using the same environment as issue they destroy with their windfarms)

            My EBMUD Water USED to be fabulous! Now it is overchlorinated, muddy-tasting, swill. Ever since the last drought, when the Utility notified us that they were siphoning water from the muddy bottom … and … “your water may taste ‘earthy’ until the drought is over” … well … the water is still SHITE!!!

            I have had to install TWO filtration systems (outside and inside my home) to make it drinkable. My State USED to be a beautiful place … now it is a giant homeless encampment with incompetent managers in every position of responsibility (remember the Oroville Dam DWR management?).

            The ONLY nice parts of this State are behind the walled-in estates of Atherton. Where the filthy rich elitist leftists retreat to live apart from the shitshow they’ve unleashed on the State.

            The only benefit anyone sees in DiFi is her advanced age and obvious aging. Her photos show it. At 85 she has limited shelf life. De Leon, who is far left of her, could be around for quite a while. If Cox made governor (pray and vote) he could appoint a successor for DiFi. Before the flame throwers go off, all of this is hypothetical. But it is better than the reality of a raging leftist like De Leon for years and years…

    It’s great that Trump is seeking to speed up the development of these programs and coordinate action better, using a more businesslike approach, but he needs to get at the root problem, which is environmentalist litigation. He needs to send in lawyers that will crush nuisance litigation, and appoint judges who won’t brook such.

    Be good if he made outreach to the California government too. Yeah, they’re nuts, but the forest fires hit them hard this year, and their ongoing water and timber management issues will likely bring them around to something sensible, which hopefully he can get in front of them somehow. There’s a win-win in here somewhere, and Trump’s the guy who might find it. Water and timber puts food on the table and cash in the treasuries, and proper management of them saves taxpayer cash, property and lives.

      Actually not. Colorado is dry and a big supplier for many States. Just drovr through the West range into East Utah. Lakes and reservoirs are way low from years of shortage. The population already exceeds the supply with good rain. The current drought could last for decades if not centuries. That is what they believe took out the Anastazi civilization. A mega drought.

      De-salination is a good solution. Expensive but at least you got good quality water.

    Of course the Fake News in attendance wanted to focus on Khashoggi and the “Caravan” from Central America. On the latter point, POTUS minced no words: “Not on my watch.” Further, if Mexico does not prevent them from getting to our southern border, he will call up the military — “not the Guard [National Guard], the [active duty] military.”

    “They’re not coming into our country, so they may as well turn around now.”

    The last question posed to POTUS (“what evidence is there that these are hardened criminals?”) shows the misbegotten nature of the opposition to doing something at the Border. Courts demand “evidence” after a full set of briefs and opportunities for motion practice and discovery. Such luxuries do NOT work on the Rio Grande. Once the coyotes and their “packages of joy” make it into this country, they scurry every which way but loose. Then they need to be hunted down and captured. Except they can’t be because then the wackadoodle judges (who can do NOTHING quickly and on a command basis) insist on a slow “due process” that has been overwhelmed by sheer force of numbers.

    If the invaders are stopped at the borders and canalized into detention camps, with immediate repatriation, everybody can be treated humanely. If they are allowed to hide and seek employment here, though, we can never get rid of them given the judges unreal insistence that there is no problem until the Government meets a burden of proof designed to deal with a much smaller number of REAL asylum seekers. Nowadays, everyone is an asylum seeker. They can’t keep the mess in their own homeland functioning, so we have to allow our country to be infected by their homeland’s insanity? Makes no sense..

    This is about food. Even leftist Slate got that when it published this excellent article a few years ago:

    “The C-Free Diet
    If we didn’t have California, what would we eat?”

    Food scientists at Cornell University have produced a strain of broccoli that thrives in hot environments, which may make it possible for states with stiflingly hot summers to grow the vegetable. California, where cool coastal fog is perfect for growing standard broccoli, currently produces more than 90 percent of the broccoli grown in the United States. If California were to disappear, what would the American diet be like?

    Expensive and grainy. California produces a sizable majority of many American fruits, vegetables, and nuts: 99 percent of artichokes, 99 percent of walnuts, 97 percent of kiwis, 97 percent of plums, 95 percent of celery, 95 percent of garlic, 89 percent of cauliflower, 71 percent of spinach, and 69 percent of carrots (and the list goes on and on). Some of this is due to climate and soil. No other state, or even a combination of states, can match California’s output per acre. Lemon yields in California, for example, are more than 50 percent higher than in Arizona. California spinach yield per acre is 60 percent higher than the national average. Without California, supply of all these products in the United States and abroad would dip, and in the first few years, a few might be nearly impossible to find. Orchard-based products in particular, such as nuts and some fruits, would take many years to spring back.

    The fact that President Trump is able to do so much good for Americans via regulatory and “memoranda” is also an illustration of why it is easy for fools and democrats to do so much damage with the same tools when they are in power.

    Unless there is some kind of scorched earth attrition in the bureaucracies and regulatory agencies, most of what he is doing (that is such a blessing) can be easily reversed by the next fool and/or democrat (those categories often overlap) that takes the office.

    Democrats campaign on their message of free stuff and their voter base is genuinely ignorant – not understanding that there is no free stuff – that phrase just means someone else is paying for it. As long as their voter base is ignorant and alien they will be a threat to our Republic.
