9-in-10 wildfires are set by humans

Original Article

Dear Facebook, Before you flag this as fake news, my source is the National Weather Service. NWS reported that 87% of the wildfires were caused by humans this year -- 7,072 in California alone. Not all were arson, of course, because humans are pretty careless. But enough are arson to cause concern in light of Democrats setting cities aflame this summer. The last thing we want is the Antifa arm of the Democrat Party expanding into rural areas. (Snip)The Daily Mail reported, "Stark data showed that 36,383 of the 41,599 fires that have ripped through the nation in the first nine months of the year were started by humans,

Smokey the Bear used to say "Care Will Prevent 9 out of 10 Forest Fires" but in 1947, it became "Remember... Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires."

87%, is a nice number to use for media and friends, and many others are lightning strikes. Without clearing brush and other over-grown forest areas, they allowed the prospect for these massive wildfires. Also, with many mountain communities having one road in, and out, it presents a dangerous situation for the people who've built there, and firefighters. I did hear Gov. Newsom remind President Trump that 57% of all the forest areas in California are Federal lands, thus, was pushing for more Federal money to fight the fires. Presume the Feds then have full control over those lands since Newsom has reminded it's the Feds' responsibility. However, have outside groups been allowed to dictate Federal forest management?

I read the other day that four had been arrested for setting these fires. One was a committed Antifa member. This what it’s coming to. Make sure your firearms are clean and loaded.

It has been my expectation that many/most of these Left Coast fires are antifa-Demonrat political arson. Probably 90% is a good bet.

Is anyone surprised? I would have bet that the arsonists are all demonrats doing what they do best - do anything that feels good. So what if people are burned alive. It's called them doing their part in reducing the world's population.

To Rescue Biden, Media Conflate All
Teleprompter Use

Posted by earlybird 9/20/2020 5:08:07 PM Post Reply
At his Wisconsin rally last night, President Donald Trump continued to tease former Vice President Joe Biden for relying on a teleprompter when he answers queries from the media. While teleprompter use is very common for politicians and others giving formal speeches, Biden is the first candidate to regularly use one outside of formal speeches, such as during press conferences. During Biden’s nearly 50 years in politics, his off-the-cuff remarks have gotten him in more than a bit of trouble, but the obvious teleprompter use is posing problems of its own. The Trump campaign made a brutal one-minute ad about it recently:

It's no secret that Republicans take filling judgeships much more seriously than Democrats. President Trump released his first list of prospective Supreme Court nominees before he was even elected, back in September 2016, and - in what was taken at the time as a grim harbinger of RBG's condition - released his most recent revisions/additions earlier this month, just days before RBG died. But in the latest indication of just how low a priority selecting Supreme Court judges has been for Democrats (Snip)Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is reportedly refusing to release a list of potential nominees, should he ever get the opportunity to fill the vacancy left by the death

The instant Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing was announced, the battle lines were drawn. Or, more accurately, one side girded for battle, while Republicans clucked with confusion about what to do next. Which should be no surprise. If Republicans are good at anything, it’s finding “principled” reasons to betray their constituents and contradict their much vaunted philosophy. President Trump, naturally, has sounded strong, as, to his credit, has Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). But the majority leader has to manage a fractious caucus and a thin margin. Many of his members either will be looking for excuses not to vote, or for a reason to vote no, or (worse) will be persuadable

There are 53 GOP Senators. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will need 50 votes to confirm a new Supreme Court Justice, with Vice President Mike Pence standing by to break any tie. One GOP Senator, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska has already signaled today that she will not vote to confirm any new Supreme Court Justice until after Inauguration Day in January. That means Cocaine Mitch can only endure two more defections and still be able to confirm a new Supreme Court Justice.

We stand at the crossroads. Over the next several years, the noble sentiments and ideas that gave birth to the United States will either be repudiated or reaffirmed. The fateful choice before us will result either in the death of a grand hope or a recommitment to an extraordinary political experiment whose full flowering we have yet to realize.
