Police Chief stands against stupid gun law

Via Jeff Dunetz

I-1639 was an anti-gun referendum on the Washington State ballot on election day. Thanks to a marketing effort funded via strong financial support from anti-gun billionaires including Michael Bloomberg, Steve, and Connie Ballmer and Nick and Leslie Hanauer, the measure passed on election day with nearly sixty percent of the ballot. One local official,  Republic Police Chief Loren Culp,  is fighting the law by proposing a local ordinance declaring  Republic City a sanctuary city for those who don’t want to obey the new freedom stealing law.

On November 7th, the day after the election and the passage of 1-639 Police Chief Culp wrote on the department’s Facebook page:

I’ve taken 3 public oaths, one in the US Army and Two as a police officer. All of them included upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States of America.

The second amendment says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

As long as I am Chief of Police, no Republic Police Officer will infringe on a citizens right to keep and Bear Arms, PERIOD! – Chief Culp

The new law is bad, as in terrible, as in awful, as in draconian Go read the rest of what this anti-liberty bill mandates

Do you have to be a moron to be on a CNN panel?

How absurd can she be? Kirsten Powers stereotypes White men and women, then tries to bemoan discrimination? 

A CNN panel hosted by Don Lemon was attempting to figure out why white women supported President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Trump won 52 percent of the vote from white women, compared to Clinton’s 43 percent.

Powers insisted that anyone who voted for Trump is a “racist,” even if they only voted for him because they greatly disliked Clinton.

“I think one of the first things is that people will say that, uh, they support him for reasons other than his racist language … and they’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist, I just voted for him because I didn’t like Hillary Clinton,’ and I just want to say that’s not — that doesn’t make you not racist,” Powers asserted. “It actually makes you racist.”

“If you support somebody that’s racist, that makes you racist,” she repeated. “So, I just want to establish that.”

Ah the left, continually flying their false flags of RAAAAACISM, and SEXXXXXISM, and this ism and that ism while they are the actual bigots

About those horrific fires in California

So many people have perished, so many lives destroyed. And what does Governor Climate Justice do? He points his finger at “Climate Change” Knuckledraggin asks if maybe Jerry Brown should look at his own leftist ideology

What many do not know, is that California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bipartisan wildfire management bill in 2016, despite unanimous passage by the Legislature, 75-0 in the Assembly and 39-0 in the Senate. SB 1463 would have given local governments more say in fire-prevention efforts through the Public Utilities Commission proceeding making maps of fire hazard areas around utility lines. In a gross display of politics, this is especially pertinent given that Cal Fire and the state’s media are now blaming the largest utility in the state for the latest wildfires.

In August I interviewed Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA), whose district includes the Yosemite Valley and the Tahoe National Forest in El Dorado County, both areas which have suffered greatly under recent wildfires.

McClintock said for decades, traditional forest management was scientific and successful – that is until ideological, preservationist zealots wormed their way into government and began the overhaul of sound federal forest management through abuse of the Endangered Species Act and the “re-wilding, no-use movement.”

Traditional forest management had simple guidelines: thin the forest when it becomes too difficult to walk through; too many trees in the woods will compete with one another, because the best trees will grow at a slower rate.

The U.S. Forest Service used to be a profitable federal agency, McClintock said. “Up until the mid-1970s, we managed our National Forests according to well-established and time-tested forest management practices.”

“But 40 years ago, we replaced these sound management practices with what can only be described as a doctrine of benign neglect,” McClintock said. “Ponderous, byzantine laws and regulations administered by a growing cadre of ideological zealots in our land management agencies promised to ‘save the environment.’  The advocates of this doctrine have dominated our law, our policies, our courts and our federal agencies ever since.”

In August, Megan Barth and I wrote an article for The Daily Wire, specifically addressing why forest management has been put on the back burner. We explained how Obama-Era and Clinton-Era radical eco-terrorism thrived, made possible through drastic environmental regulations, and those “ponderous, byzantine laws and regulations” Rep. McClintock spoke of, which prevent any significant and important forest clearing, brush clearing, and dead tree removal, leaving all public forests vulnerable to wildfires

So, what happens when dead trees are not cleared out?

Today, Dec. 11,The U.S.D.A. Forest Service announced that an additional 27 million trees, mostly conifers, died throughout California since Nov. 2016, bringing the total number of trees that have died due to drought and bark beetle infestation to a historic 129 million on 8.9 million acres.

According to the report The Sierra National Forest is home to the most damaged acres, recorded at just over one million acres. It also houses the largest numbers of dead trees at nearly 32 million.

Tulare, Fresno and Madera are the three hardest hit counties.

“The number of dead and dying trees has continued to rise, along with the risks to communities and firefighters if a wildfire breaks out in these areas,” said Randy Moore, Regional Forester of the U.S.D.A. Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Region. “It is apparent from our survey flights this year that California’s trees have not yet recovered from the drought, and remain vulnerable to beetle attacks and increased wildfire threat. The Forest Service will continue to focus on mitigating hazard trees and thinning overly dense forests so they are healthier and better able to survive stressors like this in the future.”

Again, leftism, in this case environmentalism, is destroying homes, and killing people. Again, Leftism, and all its tenets do nothing but destroy
