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.

Devin Nunes Says ‘Deep State’ Exists And Is ‘Much Worse Than Even I Thought It Ever Was’

Published

on

For the last several years we’ve been hearing the term “deep state” from folks in the Trump administration as well as from conservative pundits and news organizations in reference to a secret, shadowy group of leftist individuals within the government working against President Trump and his agenda for our country. Some folks have claimed this is all just a tinfoil hat kind of conspiracy theory, but if what Rep. Devin Nunes says is true, then not only is this network of resistance defectors real, it’s far worse than we could have imagined. Here’s more on this story from The Washington Examiner: California Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, spoke to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday about his efforts to raise awareness of bureaucracy within the federal government believed to be undermining President Trump. “One thing that I tell the American people every time that I speak and I go out on the road and I talk to people is that, remember, the deep state here is much worse than even I thought it ever was,” Nunes said in an interview along with Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, to talk about efforts to renew and reform parts of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Trump’s distrust of people inside the White House and the federal government has intensified since his impeachment and acquittal, and he believes his government is filled with “snakes” he wants to be fired and replaced. Steps are already being taken to weed them out. A network of conservative activists led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is helping compile detailed memos of disloyal government officials they want to be fired, while also finding Trump loyalists to replace them, according to Axios. According to Nunes, the…

Former GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain Slams Bernie Sanders; Says ‘Democratic Socialism Doesn’t Exist’

Published

Conservative pundit and former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain recently went after Sen. Bernie Sanders, the current top contender for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, stating that Sanders’ version of “Democratic socialism” does not exist. Sanders has had a bit of a rough week after making some rather controversial statements praising some of the “good” done by communist dictator Fidel Castro during his time in Cuba, comments he later doubled down on instead of backing away from. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Bernie Sanders would have you believe that he is not like the socialists who have ruined Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and — going back a few years — all of Eastern Europe,” Cain wrote in an opinion article in the Western Journal. “Oh sure, he agrees with many of their economic ideas, but don’t worry. He’s a democratic socialist, and that’s different.” Cain then said, “Democratic socialism doesn’t exist. That’s because it can’t exist, because socialism can’t take hold in a truly democratic system.” “In order for socialism to ‘work,’ the state has to take control of major industries like health care, energy and manufacturing,” he wrote. “It has to confiscate massive amounts of private wealth. It has to control the means of production and distribution. It has to control wages and prices. It has to monopolize things like higher education.” Sanders has been riding high off victories in New Hampshire and Nevada and has stated that he believes Democratic socialism will lead to political and economic freedom for people in every community. The Vermont senator has accused President Trump and others on the right side of the political spectrum of fear mongering concerning his socialist views and policies, particularly when it comes to the issues of healthcare, the economy, and climate change. The fact that…
