I’m seeing lots of inane chatter from democrats today about how half of CA’s forest are federal lands, and therefore that’s where all the blame should go regarding our fires. Nonsense. Allow me to explain...
Radical environmentalist groups have destroyed our forests with the help of the spineless legislators who refuse to stand up to them, for fear of losing the coveted “A” rating.
For decades they have blocked legislation to thin forests, allow timber harvesting, brush removal and controlled burns.
All the dead undergrowth is left to build up, becoming fuel for fire. Add to that the fact that they even managed to keep ranchers from allowing grazing which helps keep the forest floor clean.
So when you hear democrats criticize comments about forest management, ask those democrats how much money they’ve received from groups like the Sierra Club to let our forests and homes burn to the ground.

California’s energy demands cannot be met with 100% solar energy. California makes enough solar power for 7.8 M homes. That’s not enough for every home, much less businesses.
That solar power provides only 20% of the state’s need. Also, Mt. Diablo nuclear plant, which is clean alternative energy, is being shuttered. Mt. Diablo made enough power for 1.7M homes.
Solar goes from producing 18% of the electricity on the power grid at 4:00pm to ZERO percent at 9:00pm.

“Tool box killer" Lawrence Bittaker and partner Roy Norris called their van "Murder Mack", it had no windows so they could hide the young girls they kidnapped as they cruised up and down Pacific Coast Highway in the first half of 1979.#nojustice MM
16-year-old Cindy Schaeffer was picked up by the pair near Redondo Beach. Norris forced into the van, duct taped her mouth and bound her arms and legs. Bittaker drove her to the San Gabriel Mountains where both men raped her.
Bittaker then wrapped a wire coat hanger around her neck, tightened it with vice-grip pliers and strangled her to death. Afterward, they dumped her body in canyon.
