The View from Colusa County

Original Article

Posted By: konocti95, 10/29/2020 6:09:49 PM

I’m sitting at my ranch in western Colusa County, an hour’s drive northwest of Sacramento. When my grandmother grew up here, 140 years ago, there were dozens of vibrant homesteads, successful farms, enough kids to fill the local schoolhouse. There was even a proper cemetery. The Leesville–Ladoga stagecoach came through each day, headed to the mines or to the several hotels beside the mineral springs that dotted the area. On this land now—except for myself and my wife and one other family—only cattle graze. The people and their livelihoods left long ago. It is Trump country. A man I know from town stopped by the other day.

About halfway into the article I finally went back to the beginning to see who the moron was that wrote. Sure enough it was the Jerry Brown, one of the worst Governors in the history of California. He is the one that allowed government workers to unionize. We now have the highest paid and largest group of 'do nothings' in the country. Yes he is tied with 'Shwartz neck' and Gray Davis as the worst governor in our history.

This Leftist POS Jerry Brown says of Trump: "We have a president who actively seeks to sow division and create chaos." This lame failed governor blames all of the hatred, bad feelings, uncouth boorishness, etc., on Trump----like there wasn't a plot by the Democrats to overthrow Trump even before he was inaugurated. Like there wasn't riots, windows smashed, and cars burned in DC on Inauguration Day.

A mistake. This puke was mentally deranged in the 60s, and got worse with time. I'd sure stay away from him if I was one of his sane neighbors.

TRUMP’s “vainglorious strutting” and “shameless philandering”. What in the world does this even mean? How does this pertain to anything related to the presidency? Concocting such a ludicrous and meaningless phrase to explain why you don’t like someone shows how frivolous people can be. So you don’t like TRUMP’s style or attitude, so what? I have family members I don’t like but I stand behind them. I’m sure Mr. Brown was real proud of himself to figure out how to use vainglorious and philandering in the same sentence. As soon as I read it, I figured this guy is an idiot.

I started chuckling at Moonbeam's reference to Trump destroying their "rules-based" world. By the last paragraph was I laughing so hard my shoulders were shaking. The jackass party knows that it is being turned out of the barn and headed for sparse grazing in the wilderness. Its supremely ironic that Jerry returned to the land where his grandmother was raised, to his family roots, and found he was in the middle of Trump Country. That detail tickles me no end. I have an optimistic confidence that President Trump is going to win California, Oregon and Washington; as well as all the other Dim hostage states. Alumni from our 2016 Trump HQ are waving signs/flags, every day this week till election day, beside Hwy 101 through downtown Ukiah (the Mendocino county seat) during peak drive times in the morning and evening. The positive response is greater than 2016 and the negative less in number. The China Plague has disrupted normal life and legacy Democrats have felt the boot heel of Progressive Marxism. Gruesome Newsom is openly disliked, but he's not on the ballot. I believe a lot of the anger against the governor will be expressed in a vote for President Trump. Refugees are pouring out of San Francisco and Los Angeles. How many are Dim votes? Of those still in dysfunctional Democrat cities, how many are tired of the lock-downs and the riots? There are millions of conservative Californians that gave up voting decades ago and now have a true champion to support. That dynamic plays in Oregon and Washington as well. The committed Dim voters in the coastal cities may not be able to withstand the Red Wave rolling over them from eastern/rural California. MAGA - Its for all 50 states or it ain't worth a damn.

The firing of a makeup artist from the buzzy new Amy Poehler project is causing ruptions in the TV world, we’re told. Earlier this month, Page Six reported that the artist in question was canned from the “Untitled Tracy Oliver Project” — the new show from the “Girls Trip” creator dubbed the “Black Sex and the City” — for allegedly saying the N-word repeatedly in front of one of the show’s lead actresses, while singing along with a rap song. (We know both the name of the actress and the makeup artist, but we aren’t going to print them due to the sensitivity of the situation.

REDDING — A man wanted for his role in an alleged $35 million Ponzi scheme was arrested Monday after evading FBI agents by swimming into California’s largest reservoir using an underwater “sea scooter,” federal prosecutors said. Matthew Piercey spent nearly 30 minutes in frigid Lake Shasta using the Yamaha 350Li submersible device before he eventually resurfaced and was handcuffed, the Sacramento Bee reported. It wasn't immediately known if the 44-year-old has an attorney. When agents went to arrest Piercey, he hopped in a pickup and led them on a chase that ended at the shoreline of the lake north of Redding.

Egyptian antiquities officials on Saturday announced the discovery of at least 100 ancient coffins, some with mummies inside, and around 40 gilded statues in a vast Pharaonic necropolis south of Cairo. Colorful, sealed sarcophagi and statues that were buried more than 2,500 years ago were displayed in a makeshift exhibit at the feet of the famed Step Pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara. Archaeologists opened a coffin with a well-preserved mummy wrapped in cloth inside. They also carried out X‐raying visualizing the structures of the ancient mummy, showing how the body had been preserved.

It’s a whale of a tale. On the 50th anniversary of the “Florence whale explosion” Thursday, a former Oregon TV newsman recalled what it was like to cover the infamous event — where authorities used half a ton of dynamite to blow up a beached whale. “I was asked about it virtually every day of my life, or commented on it, by everybody, strangers alike,” Paul Linnman told KATU-TV in Portland. On Nov. 12, 1970, Linnman and his cameraman Doug Brazil were just 23 when they were assigned to capture the blubber blast on a beach in Florence, Ore.

LOS ANGELES  — The Los Angeles Times and Tribune Publishing have agreed to pay $3 million to settle a lawsuit that said minority journalists and women were paid less than white reporters. Nearly 240 current and former reporters and editors will benefit from the settlement that was granted preliminary approval last month by a judge in San Bernardino County, the Times reported Tuesday. The discrimination lawsuit, filed in June, alleged that the Times violated California’s Equal Pay Act and the state’s Business and Professions Code.

On October 6th, 2020 Los Angeles woke up to a giant TRUMP sign in the foothills overlooking one of the busiest stretches of road in the United States, the 405 freeway. The sign was immediately removed by the City of Los Angeles, citing traffic hazard worries, despite being on private land. Although the antics made national news, no one came forward to claim responsibility for the sign. Until now. RedState was contacted by a person referring to himself as “Mr. Black”, who wanted us to know that the group responsible for the sign had not only been planning it since 2018, they had also produced their own campaign ad in support of Trump and aimed at California voters.

WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?” We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then. Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to?

As is the case with many far-left causes and feminists, Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Like Tampax claiming men can have periods, or school districts ruling it fair for boys to compete in girls’ sports, leftist causes often come down to arguments over semantics rather than science. Ratajkowski finds herself in a similar trap, claiming to not really know her child’s sex until he is 18, and assuring readers

Trooper Dane Pfeiffer, 35, met Cara Kennedy-Cuomo, 25, through his job as one of her dad’s bodyguards, sources said. They began dating about seven months ago — after she moved into the Executive Mansion in Albany due to the coronavirus pandemic — and Cuomo learned about the relationship a short time later, sources said.

Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
