Who Set The Sonoma County Fires? If Intentional; It’s Mass Murder

Crime, Environmentalism & Animal Rights, Labor, Left-Liberalism, Multiculturalism

In Washington State, all I ever hear is that practically all our devastating fires are “caused by lightening.” I seldom see lightening here. I know what it looks like (thunder follows, so if you hear it, you know lightening preceded it). I saw plenty lightening in my native South Africa, especially on the highveld. I’ve seldom seen lightening in my state.

Says Ken Pimlott, director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection:

“These are all fires that were in areas that are populated, and 95% of the fires in our state are started by people” in some way, he said, downplaying the chances that lightning may have played a role.

Are the Powers looking the other way? Investigate. If these fires are intentional; this is mass murder.

Heartbreak Harvey & The Pale, Patriarchal, Pen-s People

Environmentalism & Animal Rights, Ethics, Etiquette, Gender, Race, The West

As hard as I try, I can’t help noticing that in every heartbreaking Harvey clip it’s the pale, patriarchal, pen-s people doing most, if not all, the heavy lifting. (Yeah, yeah, I know, America is a majority-white country, as John Daniel Davidson of the Federalist noted with trepidation.)

So I’ll pretend I didn’t notice, and you do the same, and let’s thank our brave men (and women Cute Wink | Symbols & Emoticons) rescuers, whatever your background (Cute Wink | Symbols & Emoticons). You are a magnificent, multicultural lot (Cute Wink | Symbols & Emoticons).

Give it up for Sheriff Sheriff T. Nehls

And for the Coast Guard:

HEADLINE ROUND-UP

Ann Coulter, Donald Trump, Environmentalism & Animal Rights, Foreign Policy, IMMIGRATION, Islam, Middle East

Just when the need for real journalism intensifies, the great Seymour Hersh returns to the headlines. Military Officials: There Was NO Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria; Trump Bombed Syria DESPITE Advice From Military:

They advanced starvation and cholera in Yemen by bombing it. Now the Saudis, POTUS’s BFFs, donate relief and get praise. So why is Trump green-lighting Saudi aggression against Qatar?

Ridiculous: On the West’s ability to grapple with Islam, Ayaan Hirsi Ali shows she is FULL OF IT, and has adopted her adopted countries’ habit of babbling about a mystical ideology, instead of a brute religion (Islam). Ali has come out against a man who was once a friend to her: Geert Wilders.

We got some comic relief when a CNN “reporter,” having covered nothing but the no-news Russia non-story, moaned about the lack of attention to torture and murder ongoing in Venezuela. Fake News doesn’t even know it’s fake news.

Sean Hannity may have once promised to keep Trump honest, but as illustrated in the column “THE WAR ON TRUMP: The Big Picture for Conservatives, Libertarians & Liberals,” the two party apparatchiks simply move into the same firing positions when their men are in power. Hannity censors Ann Coulter’s criticism.

Deplorables supported the Trump who ran on diplomacy with Islam-fighting Russia. Sanctions & hostility don’t MAGA. But apparently Deplorables adapt once their guy is in the White House. Sanctions on Russia and on Cuba: Bad.

Suffer the helpless dogs: Animals, too, are in danger because America imports people with monstrous morals. Germany is no better.

I don’t know about you, but I no longer believed Trump In Iowa. He said immigrants were to enter only if they love us. Like Australia’s unwanted refugees, which POTUS has welcomed?

There was no excuse for North Korea’s mistreatment of poor Otto Warmbier, and no excuse for Obama indifference to Otto. Maybe if Otto, RIP, had looked more like Trayvon Martin? Remeber Obama’s “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin”?

Finally, Democrat Jon Ossoff lost his race in Atlanta, but, oh how like Jared Kushner he looked: Both are in gender limbo, not quite man, not quite woman. (See “What Ivanka Wants, Ivanka Gets.”)

Elon Musk, Et Al.: The Corporate Arm Of The Deep State

Elon Musk, Et Al.: The Corporate Arm Of The Deep State” is the current column, now on Townhall.com.  An excerpt:

… “Deep State” is no conspiracy theory. There’s nothing mythical about the Republican and Democratic career government workers, embedded like parasites in the bowels of the bureaucracy, the intelligence community, the military, and a like-minded media, who’ve risen on their hind legs to protect their turf and protest an agenda that leaves them out in the cold.

The anatomy and workings of the Deep State are, in my opinion, reflexive, rather than a matter of collusion and conspiracy. Simple psychology—human nature at its worst—sees government jobs and programs, war and welfare alike, protected in perpetuity and at all costs by the administrators of government jobs and programs.

Hidden or in plain sight, The State is geared toward increasing or maintaining its sphere of influence, never reducing it. Voters are paid lip service, provided their wishes coincide with the aims of this unelected, entrenched apparatus.

But when the popular will defies Deep State, that monster breathes fire.

The “technocratic elite” has a corporate extension. Engorged government bureaucracies are complemented by colossal corporate entities, whose virtue-signaling managers have occupied “the commanding heights of the economy, politics, and culture.” As Burnham warned they would.

The corporate element of this government-within-government superstructure (yes, the conservative Burnham had a Trotskyite beginning) has special access by virtue of its obscene wealth. Think the liver-spotted George Soros, who moves to overthrow governments in “lesser” countries. Think Apple’s Tim Cook, Microsoft’s Brad Smith, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Uber’s Travis Kalanick, or Google’s Sundar Pichai. They all sprang into action against Trump’s secession from the Paris Climate Accord. …
