´This could have been a lot different´:
Trump Doubles Down on blaming forest
management for California wildfires before
heading west ´to be with the firefighters´,*

Daily Mail (UK), by Marlene Lenthang

Donald Trump is fanning the flames of California wildfire controversy as he blames the deadly blazes that have killed 74 on poor forest management yet again, re-igniting fury among West Coast residents and firefighters just hours before he´s set to touch down in the state. The president spoke to press first thing in the morning from the South Lawn before taking off for the West Coast where he´ll be making two stops and will speak with first responders, FEMA representatives, California governor Jerry Brown and governor elect Gavin Newsom. ´It seems many more people are missing than anyone thought even

*as more than one thousand people are feared missing and death toll hits 74

Prez tells the truth, and the guilty scream. The US Gov´t owns most of the Northern California land. It fails to manage it properly. It and the state fail in water management as well. Trump knows what is wrong, knows how to fix or improve the situation. The media know nothing about any of it, but rely on criticism, anyway.

Look, California is a dry region, some years much drier than others. Drinking water for most has to come from far distant watersheds. These fires happened thousands of times over the centuries because of natural causes. Once humans were introduced, especially in great numbers, fire outbreaks will cause lots of damage and cause loss of life just because the area is now inhabited where once it wasn´t. This (and lack of drinking water) is the downside to California´s great climate. So, President Trump is absolutely right in citing forest mismanagement as a major cause for such conflagration. Lack of fire breaks, inadequate removal of brush in and around populated areas, and the list goes on. Hate DailyMail´s headline using the words "double down" as if the president, repeating a known cause, is supposed to alter his opinion based upon ignorance from media critics. Trump is often the only adult in the room, especially when it comes to a room full of politicians and media airheads.

Hey Kalifornia, just because Trump says it´s true, doesn´t make it an automatic lie.

Brown would rather spend money on fast trains going nowhere and taking care of illegal voters,er,democrats, er, illegal democratic voters...

Of course President Trump is correct. You have to consider the source of this fake reporting from the trashy anti-Trump UK Daily Mail.

When California Government allowed the building of large numbers of housing in essentially the middle of huge forests that are allowed to grow wild with a history of big and fast moving fires during periods of high wind, it is just a matter of time before a disaster occurs.

Sorry DM, but as a West Coast resident, I am not reacting in fury to the President. Though I am reacting with total loathing and disgust to the environmentalists and the legislature in Sacramento. I don´t live in Cali, but I have watched the Leftists run amok for several decades. The chickens have come home to roost, and yes Gavin, you are inheriting a horrible and failed legacy. I suspect you are going to regret running for Governor. This may kill any aspirations you have of higher office in DC.

Well, or course it´s self-evident the President is right. You cannot have massive fires without massive amounts of fuel. These so-called forest managers have done nothing to actually manage the forests. They won´t allow logging to thin the forests, with the result the forests are much too dense. The undergrowth and brush is obviously not being cleared.

There is no controversy. Anyone blaming the fires on anything other than forest mis-management is deranged. If your car caught on fire every time you started it, you would rightly say your mechanic was not doing his job. (unless you are a liberal. Then you would blame it on Global Warming)

The article was incorrect - it stated that President Trump approved aid AFTER he criticized management. He approved the aid readily but said future aid might not be as available until forests are better managed.

A few days ago, I had no thoughts about this disaster, other than sorrow for the loss of life. Then, I read where moonbeam Brown, in 2016, vetoed a bill for improved forest (or land?) management. He didn´t just veto it. He also castigated Californians for their cute little lawns & lack of concern for climate change. He said that forest fires are due to man made climate change, not nature (despite the fact that there have been forest fires in CA for millenia). So, who do they elect for the next governor? Another incompetent lib?

I live in the California foothills, and President Trump is exactly right. The environmentalist and their Democrat allies have placed needless restrictions on the removal of forest undergrowth thought control burns, etc. Our idiot governor, Jerry Brown, is of course blaming global warming on the devastating Camp Fire in Butte County. Now extreme liberal Gavin Newsom will be replacing Brown as governor. Help, I´m surrounded by liberal morons!

President Trump on Sunday suggested NBC and "Saturday Night Live" are colluding with Democrats, suggesting in a morning tweet that legal action should be taken to stop the "unfair news coverage and Dem commercials."

One of the more memorable holiday items of 2018 will probably have to be the chicken-scented yule logs from Kentucky Fried Chicken. The chicken chain restaurant launched its own KFC-scented Enviro-Logs on Thursday, claiming that once burning, the logs will smell like the Colonel’s signature blend of 11 herbs and spices, Fox News reported.

It is rare that Republicans and Democrats agree on something. But the two battling factions do see eye to eye on one thing: They are troubled by stark political divides among Americans. A Fox News poll finds that 78 percent of all U.S. voters are now either “extremely or very concerned” about the polarized nation; that includes 75 percent of Republicans, 72 percent of independents and 82 percent of Democrats. According to the poll data, only health care — which concerns 83 percent of the public — outranks political division on the national roster of worries. Tied in third place,

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.

A federal judge in Texas late Friday threw the health coverage of some 20 million Americans in limbo by ruling Obamacare must be scrapped because Congress struck the penalty for failing to obtain insurance coverage. The invalidation of the landmark 2010 law is certain to send shock waves through the U.S. health system and Washington after a midterm election seen in part as a rebuke to Republican efforts to tear down Obamacare.
