    Trump was right: California’s forests have been grossly mismanaged

    https://www.fresnobee.com/opinion/re...221683150.html

    Trump is right. We do have a management problem on the state, federal level and local levels (in that order). This can be broken down into six key areas where we have failed: Access, logging, grazing, endangered species, water quality and air pollution.


    Mismanaged, overcrowded forests provide fuel to historic California wildfires, experts say

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/p...es-experts-say

    Neglect and mismanagement have left western U.S. forests overcrowded, firefighting experts say, leaving them more susceptible to the kinds of major wildfires that are currently ravaging California.

    “Our forests are dramatically overcrowded,” said Krystal Beckham of the Little Hoover Commission, an independent California oversight agency that has called for major changes in the state's forest management practices.

    “There are some places where there may be four times as many trees as there should be,” Beckham said. “When you have trees that close together, they can’t get the water they need, so they are more susceptible to drought, insects, and disease. And when they start dying, they become a terrible fire threat.”

    Actually, even California says Trump is right about the wildfires

    https://nypost.com/2018/11/20/actual...the-wildfires/

    President Trump’s critics are belittling him for not buying the lefty narrative that global warming is to blame for the California wildfires. Instead, Trump points to decades of mistakes by government agencies that caused the woodlands to become overly dense and blanketed with highly flammable dead wood and underbrush.

    He’s exactly right.

    Just ask California officials. Two months ago, the state legislature enacted a measure that would expedite the removal of dead trees and use “prescribed burns” to thin forests. In other words: the very same reforms that Trump is now being mocked for proposing. The September law followed a Gov. Jerry Brown executive order earlier this year that also called for “controlled fires” to improve forest health.
    California is controlled by the liberal environmentalist, you can't pull a weed in California let alone clean out dead brush in a fire zones. California prefers death of its citizens over clearing brush from a fire hazard.

    Same with all their illegals that they let go without deportation, why, because they want to protect illegals over the deaths of their citizens by illegals. A young police officer was shot to death by and illegal a couple of weeks back and they could care less. Why, because they don't like the police and they like harboring illegals that kill people.

    Tell me how many people were burned to death in California due to forest fires in 2018?

    Tell me California is not a sanctuary state, harboring illegal criminals?

    Yeah a non sequitur to you. You could give a damn how many people are burned to death because CA will not provide fire protection from it's forest. You don't care how many people are killed, raped, stole from, underage girls being sold to the sex trade, drug runners, etc etc committed by illegals. Christ you give safe harbor to these illegal alien criminals. It's all OK with you as long as your not one of the victims.

    You’re ok with electing literal nazis. This is a fun game you’re playing, what do you call it?

    Really - prove it (to borrow the phrase you love to toss out).

    While you are at it, maybe you'd be so kind as to also provide some data on what percentage of the victims you referred to were victimized by American citizens - just so that we can all see that almost 100% of the problem is caused by illegals.

    Thanks.

    You libs have no logic. Period. Take away all the crime committed by illegals and our crime rate drops like a rock. Fact. To make it simple for you to understand, if there were NO illegals in this country there would be NO crime committed by illegals. Get it.

    Really?

    Statistics please.

    You do realize that all of the available evidence to date shows that "illegals" are LESS likely to commit crimes than "legals" don't you?

    Oh now, that was silly of me, of course you don't - because Breitbart doesn't tell you what the actual statistics prove.

    You are 100% correct.

    Of course if there were no "natural born Americans" in the US then there would be NO crime committed by "natural born Americans" and, since "natural born Americans" commit the majority of the crimes in the United States of America then the crime rate in the US would drop even more sharply if all of the "natural born Americans" were booted out of the country.

    Your logic is ...

    Well, unfortunately I can't quite come up with a word that acceptably describes the level.
