Zinke Drops Truth Bomb Regarding Wildfires, Backing up POTUS

While some decry the “blame game”, it is important to note that this is about prevention, not reaction.

With the California wildfires continuing to burn out of control, a great deal of attention is being shown to the Golden State this month…not all of it prim and proper, however.

Some of this animosity has been spurned by a tweet from President Trump that sought to expose the reality of California’s strict environmentalist slant that, according to many, has led to improper forestry practices based on emotion and not merit.

While the President predictably caught an avalanche of anger from the liberal left over this statement, it turns out that one of the top wildlife officials in the nation agrees with the Commander in Chief.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke backed President Donald Trump on the years of forest mismanagement that led to the California fires as Zinke joined Breitbart News Sunday radio with host Amanda House.

He suggested that even photos of the devastation don’t do justice to what it was like to see it in person. Pointing to years of neglect and dead and dying timber, he observed, “It was like a flamethrower of embers shooting through the forests.”

Zinke said many people were unprepared for the fire. He described situations where firefighters were fighting back fire encroaching on commercial buildings with people still inside of them.

Any way you slice it, the wildfires out west are going to impact American lives for years, possibly decades to come, as families and businesses begin the very first steps toward reconstruction.

When faced with this reality, the blame game may seem out of place, but Zinke and Trump have their eyes on the future prevention of these disasters.

Mayor Cancels LGBTQ Pride Flag Raising At City Hall. You Can Probably Guess What Happened Next

Insert eye roll here.

Published

The city administration of Reading, Pennsylvania is being called discriminatory by rabid left-wingers after canceling a ceremony to raise an LGBTQ pride flag at city hall on Monday of this week. City hall canceled the flag ceremony because flying the flag would be showing support for a “political movement” and no flags supporting such movements are to be flown at city hall. via TheBlaze: “People don’t realize how many people come here looking to put up flags for movements and stuff, and I’m just not part of that, and I don’t think we should be,” the Democrat added to WPVI-TV. The LGBT Center of Greater Reading issued a statement saying “what was supposed to be a proud and historical moment” turned into “a show of blatant, unacceptable discrimination.” “We are not a cause,” the statement added. “We are human beings protected by an anti-discrimination ordinance in the City of Reading.” Local LGBTQ leaders told WPVI they plan to file a complaint with the city’s Human Relations Commission. Why should LGBTQ folks have a flag flying at city hall? If all they want is to be treated like everyone else, to be considered equal, why do they continually seek to have more rights and be a protected group? That just doesn’t make any sense. It seems pretty clear what they are really reaching for is normalization. They want other people to accept their lifestyle as normal and acceptable, to be validated. This is because deep down, they know such a lifestyle is sinful and goes against nature. This is identity politics at its finest.

NY Times Makes Insane Claim About Soviets During The Space Race

The folks at the NY Times must be just plain miserable.

Published

So it’s beginning to seem like the folks over at the NY Times have some sort of strange infatuation with the oppressive Communist overlords from the Soviet Union, as they’re now, on the cusp of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing, claiming that the Soviet Union actually won the space race. How, exactly, did they do that? Through “equality.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is just how much the left hates America. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Here’s Sophie Pinkham’s main argument: The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.’s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit. Pinkham joins a long list of NYT writers who have glorified the excesses of the Soviet Union. In his – ironically – New York Times best-selling book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” LevinTV host Mark Levin exposed this long history, dating back to Walter Duranty and his propaganda about Stalin’s regime. For nearly a century, the Times has lauded the murderous thugs who ran the Soviet Union and the system they employed. This week, as America celebrates one of her crowning achievements of the 20th century, the Times piles on again, this time by glorifying a few of the people the Soviet’s brutal regime didn’t kill for disagreeing with it. How crazy is this? Apparently these folks are forgetting about how homosexuality is viewed in Russia to this day. It’s not…
