Lives are lost because of these fires. So, please tell me when police, DOJ are going to press charges against some of these arsonists for murder?

NONE of them were since there is no such thing as Man Caused Climate Change. The real cause of all the nations problems are Liberals in Government and the stupid misguided things they force others to do.

I get the point of the article but using this to argue against climate change this way is useless. The Left tries to point fingers of blame at everything but their policies; campers, cars, smokers, utility companies, (shhh - arsonists). There will ALWAYS be something to spark a fire. The real issue is WHAT is causing the conditions that explode a spark into an unstoppable wildfire? The Leftists say climate change. Why? Because they can use that to extend control over and steal money from the people. In fact, most studies say that drought/dryness, a contributing factor to the fires, is NOT caused by climate change. Instead, Leftist policies against controlled burning have allowed enormous amounts of fuel, dead, dry brush and untrimmed trees to accumulate and once a fire starts and there are dry and windy conditions, as happen frequently in the West, it quickly rages out of control. Of course, it doesn't help that there are crazy arsonists setting fires.

It’s all due to political climate change where the left has changed former land management forestry policy to one of let nature be nature and do it’s own thing. The end result is devastation. Throw in some political arson and here we are.

The 37yr. old guy arrested for setting a fire in the median near the town of Puyallup, is also suspected of setting the fires that have forced the evacuation of the towns Sumner and Graham. Hundreds of acres and dozens of homes have been burned. A woman in Oregon caught a man on her property with matches, she forced him, at gunpoint, to lie on the ground until the cops arrived. She told him if her husband had caught him, he would have been shot.

Well, there’s living proof that “climate change” is indeed “man made” and “woman made” too, as the case may be. They surely changed the “climate” in that area for the foreseeable future, and destroyed a lot of lives and property in the process. A life in prison would be a lenient sentence.

Wildland burnoffs are as much about climate as volcanism or tsunamis. The more the fuel, the bigger the fire. Granted that favorable climate causes faster, greater growth of fuel mass. Similar to earthquakes; the longer the interval between, the greater the chance the next event will be a record breaker. Except that we can influence a wildland environment, not a seismic fracture zone.

With all the craziness on the left coast this was the first thought in my head, arsonist. In the cities they set fires on anything from cars, buildings, dumpsters even themselves. If the globe wasn't warm before it is now and it's 'man made' for sure.

They have to call them this or else admit that they are culpable for the fires, just as much as the rioters are. decades of diverting Fed money intended for forest management, combined with allowing the greenies to run the show, have proven spectacularly that democrats are complete and deliberate failures in office. Trump needs to order audits of all three states with regards to forest management and diversion of the funds. Moonbeam already admitted publicly he screwed up, so how about it Mr. President?

I was a boyscout. Helped lay out paths for a 10 acre community park and wildlife center. Knew Roger Latham - lived in my neighborhood. Read Boys Life, Ranger Rick, National Wildlife... our family often helped clean up garbage along roads. Audubon Society... I can remember reading, as a young teen, some wildlife activist saying, " Sometimes, to get enough attention on an issue, you have to exaggerate the problem, or else people just won't pay attention." At the time, as a teenager, I took the article to my Mom, and said, "they're destroying environmentalism." We both knew you only had to be caught in a lie, a few times before your credibility was gone. But we never foresaw how bad it would get.

Win or may lose in November, there is one thing for which people will forever praise President Trump: Just when it counted, at the moment of crisis with all on the line, he threw his body into the line of incoming fire — and prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming president. Deserving of thanks also is President Barack Obama, who in the 2008 primary defeated Clinton and kept her out of office through his two terms until Trump could step up to the job. The importance of what these people did becomes more impressive when one recalls that the plot to make Clinton president,

There’s going to be a lot of talk about the U.N. over the next couple of weeks. The 75th session of the U.N. General Assembly will kick off with speeches by President Trump and other world leaders next week. And the U.N. Human Rights Council is currently meeting in Geneva, as China works to bring international human-rights mechanisms under its control, and as it and other authoritarian powers seek election to the body (if history is any guide, they’ll be successful).

If Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats take control of the Senate, taxes will rise. Likely a lot. His official plan envisions a $4 trillion hike over the coming decade. But a big victory would empower the Left, which would demand bigger and broader hikes. After all, there will be lots of benefits to increase, programs to create, and, most important, interest groups to pay off. The only “cut” likely would be restoring the deduction for state and local levies, a windfall for the wealthy that liberals love. Presumably because it acts as a subsidy for big-spending state and local governments. They can keep raising rates, knowing that the federal

On September 4, 2020, Russell Vought, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, sent a brief memo to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the federal government. Its purpose was straightforward: to end the practice by any federal government agency of using training materials that promote “critical race theory” or “white privilege” or that “teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is either an inherently evil or racist country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.”

Foreign entities looking to influence American politics sometimes devise lucrative commercial deals involving a politician’s family. While the deals can, and do, ensnare politicians of all stripes, those involving the Biden family are particularly troubling: The transactions implicate US national security. While Joe Biden served as vice president, his son Hunter received offers from foreign governments and oligarchs in areas where the he had little or no expertise. That his foreign partners included a rival state, Communist China, make these arrangements particularly brazen, even by Washington’s swampy standards.

According to most polls, the state of the economy is the most urgent issue facing the nation as the November election looms. As the Kaiser Family Foundation phrased it in a survey released September 10, “The economy has now secured a spot as the top issue in the 2020 election, with one-third of registered voters (32%) saying it will be the most important issue in deciding their vote for president.” This is good news for Donald Trump. Less than two months before Election Day, most voters trust the president on the economy more than his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, particularly in the battleground states.

Caution: This is in no way a forecast that President Trump will lose or is likely to lose. In fact, the race has, predictably, tightened somewhat and he has a clear shot at victory. Instead, it is a rumination on the media and political world if that were to be the outcome. On the day--whatever day that is--that Donald Trump loses his reelection bid, the winner will be clear. The media. The victory lap will begin immediately. Many journalists and commentators will be patting themselves on the back for exposing what they see as Trump’s fatal flaws, and exulting that the country has finally come to its senses.

Has the 19th-century German composer Ludwig van Beethoven become a modern symbol of "exclusion and elitism" for rich, white men? In an article published by Vox on Tuesday that quoted New York Philharmonic clarinetist Anthony McGill, writers Nate Sloan and Charlie Harding argued that the work has been propped up by white, wealthy men, whose embrace of the musical composition stood as a symbol of "their superiority and importance." "For others — women, LGBTQ+ people, people of color — Beethoven’s symphony is predominantly a reminder of classical music’s history of exclusion and elitism," Sloan and Harding wrote.
