President Trump Receives Briefing From California Wildfire Response Officials….

Boy, is this video ever interesting.  In the first several minutes of the video (briefing) Governor Brown and Governor-elect Newsom are absent.  Likely both are receiving massive inbound communication from their political teams and national democrats who are watching every granular moment/optic for political damage and giving advice.

After Brown and Newsom finally show up, their lack of actual connection to the crisis being explained in front of them is jaw-dropping. Watch their body language, they are oblivious to the actual issues at hand and have no questions for the SME’s. Stunning.  Absolutely stunning.

As a comparative mental exercise in competence.  Compare two states, of similar size, similar populations, amid similar crises.

Contrast Governor Brown in these moments against Florida Governor Rick Scott following the hurricanes.  Brown appears detached, lost, and incapable (perhaps unwilling) to understand the details of the challenge (past and present); whereas Florida Governor Rick Scott was/is entirely engaged, entirely absorbed in the details of rescue and recovery, and entirely understanding of the challenges in each event.

What a contrast.

    Brown and Newsom look kind of like Obama did during the raid on Bin Laden’s compound. “Damn it! This is really messing up my private time with things I don’t want to worry about (or take responsibility for).”

      I would hope The President would walk through some unburned populated areas, pointing out dead trees and dry underbrush, asking “What plans are there to clear this out so it doesn’t burn these nearby people out of their homes?

      Yes. I often asked people during that Bin Laden raid to name the one person in the room who had a golf shirt on. He was dragged kicking and screaming off the course. It makes me so disgusted, even today.

          Normally, I might agree…but there are too many things that don’t add up to a normal wildfire. There are 3 different cameras that recorded blue laser lights going directly into the fire areas. What were they? What about all the cars that are burned out all the way down the highway with bodies all over and where trees and bushes are barely touched? What does it mean when the Rothschild Group said the two men were appointed to head “restructuring North America”? Why did this fire as well as the Sebastapol fire start as if it began everywhere at once, rather than in one place and spread out from there? Maybe they are all coincidences…but knowing what the leftists and globalists have been doing for the last hundred years and seeing where our country and society are today, it is not farfetched at all to believe there is something terrible going on and it is all part of a concerted plan. They have even admitted it in public at times, but it has been relatively dismissed by the media.

    They should follow Australia’s guidelines for preventing massive fires. Traditionally the indigenous people managed the land by back burning, clearing land for firebreaks. They did so for more than 40 000 years. Also people are told not to let dry brush/grass, trees grow or build up or be stacked near their houses as these could catch alight.
    People clear their gutters,also wet their house walls and roofs so sparks cant set the houses on fire. Arsonists should get life sentences. Companies that cause fire through negligence should be forced to compensate families for loss of animals, buildings and lives.

    I grew up in Laficornia. I left when I was 35. (60 now)

    Laficornia shares a long border with Nevada. Nevada tends to their forests and land like a gardener tends to their garden. They remove the dead brush and trees, removing the kindling for fires. Laficornia does not do any forest grooming. Their Eco-idiots demand a raw virgin forest with no human involvement.

    Whenever a Laficornia fire reaches the Nevada state line, they die out. The green tended forests resist the fire, where the Laficornia fires consume the dry brush and dead trees, overcoming the greenery and all is burned.

    Do a Web Search (but not with google) on “Tahoe fires” and see for yourself. other fire zones in Laficornia and Nevada are the same. Laficornia gets burned out (every year) and Nevada is always fine.

    Only idiots like Governor Moonbeam (Jerry Brown) and his Eco-idiots do not get that point.

      Just as the forest is healthy and thriving until one hits the CA border … so too with the highways. I drove cross country with my daughter about 10 years ago. Highways in every other state are smooth, clear, beautifully landscaped, and a pleasure to drive on. The minute we hit the CA border … the roadways turned to shit. Trash alongside the roadways, cracked surfaces, potholes, separating concrete … a total mess. And don’t get me started on the poor drivers. This despite having the largest road bureaucracy in the nation (CAL Trans). Despite having the MOST drivers and the highest gas taxes and highest vehicle registration fees in the nation. Where does all the money go? Pensions. Gold plated Government UNION pensions, enacted while a docile public sits by and re-elects Marxist politicians who rob the public coffers.

Instead Brown uses the gas tax money for other political agendas and when the fires come goes to the feds for money to rebuild.

    I was raised in California from the time I was 9 years old, and my husband and children were born there. We had forest fires almost every year, but I do not remember a single death of a citizen taking place in all those years. Compare with the fires over the last few years and the numbers now are shocking. What’s the difference? Well there are more people now living in forested areas, but the biggest difference is exactly what Trump said: No Forest Management!! We always had clearing of dead trees, thinning of live trees, and fire breaks. In other words, sanity ruled! Today one of the men responsible for this deadly situation stood stone faced next to Pres. Trump and his name is Jerry Brown. You can lay some of those deaths directly at his feet and those of the rabid environmentalists who have blocked fire breaks, tree thinning and dead wood removal from these areas, all in the name of “clean air” and “protecting animal habitat”. So how much “clean air” does California have today? How many protected animals died in those fires? What the hell did these jerks accomplish? So far the deaths of over 70 people and untold animal life. Want proof of the phoniness of the democrats “climate/habitat” agenda? Well here it is!!

      With regard to politics, the Democrats stole our state through voter fraud and gerrymandering as well as other corrupt means. It didn’t help that there were massive waves of leftist East Coasters who moved here during the late 50s through the 60s and beyond with the beatniks, hippies and later the yuppies. Then the carpetbaggers (like Boxer and Pelosi) strongarmed their way in after pols like the Browns (not just Pat and Jerry, but Willy too) set the stage for them. The foreign invasion after the Vietnam War didn’t help either. It isn’t all the fault of the citizens and certainly not of the true natives of the state.
