CA Fires of Hell? Thank Obama and the Environmentalists

 

The fires of Hell have descended on CA – thank the environmentalists. This was a disaster waiting to happen and not the cause of so-called climate change. Better yet, we Americans who live in that vast space located between the coasts could have given you a clue. We could have told you what was happening. But then again, it was those who probably never step into a woods made the policies. One of the few legacies of Obama that has now born fruit.

Diseases are devastating the Forest. It’s the worst of both worlds, small fires are not allowed to burn allowing forests to rejuvenate with new growth and browse necessary to sustain animal life. Appropriate logging has been stopped or severely curtailed thus limiting barriers to these hellish fires as well and help keeping forests healthy.

 

“Hotter, drier, longer forest fires we are witnessing today have nothing to do with dangerous manmade climate change. They have a lot to do with idiotic forest mismanagement policies and practices.”

 

This past week, The New York Times reported on California’s wildfires stating that “Since 2012, according to state emergency management officials, there has not been a month without a wildfire burning — a stark contrast to previous decades, when fire officials saw the fall and winter as a time to plan and regroup,”

 

As California burns, many Californians have been asking why the dramatic increase in wildfires in the last five years? Except for Governor Jerry Brown. Governor Brown claims that devastating fires are the “new normal.” Supporting Obama-era regulations have resulted in the new normal: an endless and devastating fire season.

What’s the significance of 2012?

Obama-Era Eco-Terrorism through Environmental Regulations

Under Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, “the Obama administration finalized a rule governing the management of 193 million acres of national forests and grasslands, establishing a new blueprint to guide everything from logging to recreation and renewable energy development,” The Washington Post reported in 2012. “The rule will serve as the guiding document for individual forest plans, which spell out exactly how these lands can be used.”

These Obama-era regulations introduced excessive layers of bureaucracy that blocked proper forest management and increased environmentalist litigation and costs — a result of far too many radical environmentalists, bureaucrats, Leftist politicians and judicial activists who would rather let forests burn than let anyone thin out overgrown trees or let professional loggers harvest usable timber left from beetle infestation, or selectively cut timber.

In a 2016 Townhall column, Paul Driessen explains:

Eco-purists want no cutting, no thinning – no using fire retardants in “sensitive” areas because the chemicals might get into streams that will be boiled away by conflagrations. They prevent homeowners from clearing brush around their homes, because it might provide cover or habitat for endangered species and other critters that will get incinerated or lose their forage, prey and habitats in the next blaze. They rarely alter their policies during drought years.

The resulting fires are not the “forest-rejuvenating” blazes of environmentalist lore. They are cauldron-hot conflagrations that exterminate wildlife habitats, roast bald eagle and spotted owl fledglings alive in their nests, boil away trout and trout streams, leave surviving animals to starve, and incinerate every living organism in already thin soils … that then get washed away during future downpours and snow melts. Areas incinerated by such fires don’t recover their arboreal biodiversity for decades.

Clapper rats out Obama – Obama behind the whole Trump thing

 

If you are losing your security clearance and are being paid by CNN, I guess the only thing one can do is offer up Obama as collateral for one’s paycheck. Why else should CNN pay Clapper? No access to intelligence anymore to spin information being fed from his Obama’s leftovers. But then again, Strozk had set the table in one of his love notes to Page.

Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper admitted in a CNN interview Saturday that former President Obama instigated the ongoing investigations into Donald Trump and those in his orbit.

Speaking with CNN‘s Anderson Cooper, Clapper let slip:

If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

 

 

Recall in May, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) fired off a letter to the Department of Justice  demanding unredacted versions of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and former bureau attorney Lisa Page, including one exchange which took place after Strzok had returned from London as part of the recently launched “Operation Crossfire Hurricane”  referring to the White House “running” an unknown investigation.

 

Strzok had been in London to interview Australian ambassador Alexander Downer about a drunken conversation with Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, who – after reportedly being fed information – mentioned Russia having Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Strzok: And hi. Went well, best we could have expected. Other than [REDACTED] quote: “the White House is running this.” My answer, “well, maybe for you they are.” And of course, I was planning on telling this guy, thanks for coming, we’ve got an hour, but with Bill [Priestap] there, I’ve got no control….

Page: Yeah, whatever (re the WH comment). We’ve got the emails that say otherwise.

Why won’t Trump order the release the entire FISA warrant? That’s a puzzle to me.

Hillary Clinton’s interference in Putin’s election and his revenge

 

Reports of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election have dominated the headlines. But this wasn’t the first time Vladimir Putin and Hillary Clinton faced off over an election and its fallout.

You see, Putin was clear-eyed about how the Obama and Clinton operated with their cronies in arms- Susan Rice, and Samantha Power as they lay waste to a number of elected governments. We will look at six interferences perpetrated against governments. Putin was no fool.

Then the unspeakable happened. Hillary decided to take on Putin as he was up for re-election.

Here is a scene from part one of “Putin’s Revenge,” an epic FRONTLINE documentary from “The Choice 2016” examining Putin’s rise, rule and motivations, and the American responses. Two parts of the program are available on YouTube.

 

 

 

 

What’s more, all the protestations about Russian interference in the US 2016 elections  when compared to previous US interference in Russian elections is small change.  Remember TIME magazine’s cover and report of July 15th, 1996? That was yesterdays post:

Recall when Bill Clinton meddled in Russian Election? Putin extracts revenge?

Let’s get back to Hillary and Obama.

The Guardian points out that “Americans can spot election meddling because they’ve been doing it for years“.

According to research by political scientist Dov Levin, the US and the USSR/Russia together intervened no less than 117 times in foreign elections between 1946 and 2000, or “one out of every nine competitive, national-level executive elections”.

Indeed, one cannot understand US-Russian relations today without acknowledging America’s role in the internal affairs of its defeated cold war foe.

Yeltsin relied on US political strategists – including a former aide to Bill Clinton – who had a direct line back to the White House. When Yeltsin eventually won, the cover of Time magazine was “Yanks to the rescue: The secret story of how American advisers helped Yeltsin win”.

Without the chaos and deprivations of the US-backed Yeltsin era, Putinism would surely not have established itself. But it’s not just Russia by any means, for the record of US intervention in the internal affairs of foreign democracies is extensive.

There’s more at the link.  Do read the piece. It does a fine job of what happened after Bill Clinton came into power:

As soon as Bill Clinton assumed the White House in 1993, his experts discussed “formulating a policy of American tutelage”, including unabashed partisan support for President Boris Yeltsin. “Political missionaries and evangelists, usually called ‘advisers’, spread across Russia in the early and mid-1990s,” notes Cohen: many were funded by the US government. (With disastrous results.)

 

Flashback Obama: ‘What magic wand does Trump have to bring jobs back?’

 

Trump and his magic wand. This for my Flashback Saturday. Enjoy!

 

Our former community organizer never had a clue. It seems like a million years ago we put up with Obama but we did. Here are the magic words.

 

Donald Trump used his magical wand to bring jobs back to America. The United States economy is booming because of the wand and corporations have been quick to move back to America. Barack Obama unfortunately mocked Donald Trump for having “A Magic Wand” during his 2016 presidential campaign. However he was very very wrong indeed… Here are some examples from 2017 of Trump using his magic wand to bring jobs home.

 

Susan Rice gave “Stand Down” order in response to Russian Meddling

Obama and henchmen

 

The take away from this little number, and I for one will answer it. Why did Rice want our own Cyber security team not to continue to stop Russian meddling?

“I was incredulous and in disbelief,” Daniel Prieto, who worked under Daniel, is quoted saying in “Russian Roulette.”

“Why the hell are we standing down? Michael, can you help us understand?” Prieto asked.

Simply Susan Rice and her gaggle of co-conspirators needed Russian involvement. After all, Rice was doing endless “unmasking” of names, so she was deep into the Russian/Trump plot to deny this Presidency. Who knows, maybe the ones doing the cyber attacks were none other than our own CIA with some of their paid Russian henchmen involved. Most importantly, why all the secrecy. Why would we not have the right to know? There was even consideration for them to call voting a “critical infrastructure” thus giving Obama the right to control the States voting processes. I’ll even throw in some tin foil at the end!

Yes, we don’t need a special prosecutor, there is “no bias” and better yet, the deep State shall go on unimpeded:

Former President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity czar confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice told him to “stand down” in response to Russian cyber attacks during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Michael Daniel, whose official title was “cybersecurity coordinator,” confirmed the stand-down order during a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing held to review the Obama and President Donald Trump’s administrations’ policy response to Russian election interference.

Rice’s order to Daniel was first reported in “Russian Roulette,” a book published in March that details Russia’s meddling in the election.

In the book, authors Michael Isikoff and David Corn reported that Daniel was developing strategies to respond to Russian cyber attacks on U.S. companies and political campaigns. He proposed using what’s known as denial of service attacks to take down Russian propaganda news sites and to attack Russian intelligence agencies.

Another idea was to announce a bogus “cyber exercise” against a Eurasian country. The goal was to put the Kremlin on notice that its infrastructure could easily be targeted by the U.S.

(The full post below is well worth the read) –

The Russian Spying story first came out in March of 2018 in the Huffington Post. Knowing what we know now, did Rice and others use this as cover to try and justify getting involved in State elections? Why all the secrecy?? Deep into the post entitled with this knee slapper:

‘Stand Down, how the Obama team blew the response to the Russian Meddling’

For the meetings related to the Russian hack, Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, ordered the video feed turned off. She did not want others in the national security establishment to know what was under way, fearing leaks from within the bureaucracy.

White House officials who were absent from the meetings were not told what was being discussed. This even included other NSC staffers — some of whom bristled at being shut out. Often the intelligence material covered in these meetings was not placed in the President’s Daily Brief, the top-secret document presented to the president every morning. Too many people had access to the PDB. “The opsec on this” — the operational security — “was as tight as it could be,” one White House official later said.

Saudis gave the Obama Team suitcases of jewels before apology tour

No wonder Hillary loved the Saudis. One can only wonder how much stuff made its way to Chappaquiddick and her foundations. Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewels were given to the Obama entourage on their visit. Why am I just not sure all of it made its way back to the government as required? A tidbit from Ben Rhodes book that no one will tell you.

But first a flashback.

Remember this?  

Why is Hillary measuring White House drapes in 2016, can’t she reference the ones she stole in 2000?

This was as she and Bill were exiting.

Giving Back

After they were criticized for taking $190,000 worth of china, flatware, rugs, televisions, sofas and other gifts with them when they left, the Clintons announced last week that they would pay for $86,000 worth of gifts, or nearly half the amount.

But now on to Ben Rhodes book:

Now we know one reason why Obama bowed to the Saudi monarch.
The Saudi Kingdom gave the Obama team suitcases of jewels during their infamous Apology Tour.

The White House later insisted this was not a bow in another lie.

Zero Hedge reported:

Saudi Arabia gave White House aides jewellery worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in large suitcases, according to Ben Rhodes, former speechwriter and deputy national security adviser in the Obama administration.

In his memoir The World As It Is, published on Tuesday, Rhodes recounts a trip to Saudi Arabia in June 2009 soon after Barack Obama became president.

He says on arrival he and other US officials were taken to housing units in a compound owned by the monarchy in the desert.

“When I opened the door to my unit, I found a large suitcase,” Rhodes recounts.

“Inside were jewels.”

The trip to Saudi Arabia was the beginning of Obama’s first tour of the Middle East as president, and preceded his famous Cairo speech which he intended as a message to the Muslim world.

Rhodes says at first he thought the bagged treasure was a bribe, to influence him as he wrote Obama’s speech.

However, he soon learned he was not the only member of the delegation to be lavished with such expense.

Snip….

Eleven other White House officials were given gift sets by the Saudi government.

The president and his wife, Michelle, were not spared expensive gifts either.

The then Saudi king, Abdullah, gave the Obamas and their daughters almost $190,000 worth of gifts.

A diamond and ruby jewelery set given to Michelle Obama was valued at $132,000 alone.

 

Obama and Hillary’s right hand man Ben Rhodes joins NBC MSNBC as contributor

Isn’t this swell? We have Clapper and John Brennan as paid hacks for the networks. Now we have Ben Rhodes. Hillary’s right hand man for all things Hillary. This addition of Ben Rhodes to the very echo chamber he joked about has to be the worst of it. For some background FP post:

A stunning profile of Ben Rhodes – the asshole who is the Presidents foreign policy guru

 

The profile of one Ben Rhodes running in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine is not unsympathetic, which makes it all the more devastating.

Perhaps the key sentence is this: “His lack of conventional real-world experience of the kind that normally precedes responsibility for the fate of nations — like military or diplomatic service, or even a master’s degree in international relations, rather than creative writing — is still startling.”

 

Former top Barack Obama White House aide Ben Rhodes is joining MSNBC and NBC News as a political contributor.

MSNBC’s media relations team tweeted out the announcement Saturday, saying Rhodes would make his NBC debut on Sunday on “Meet The Press.”

Rhodes’ official title in the Obama administration was Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, and he played key roles in numerous foreign policy decisions. He took heat in 2016 when he boasted in a New York Times profile of creating an “echo chamber” to sell the Iran nuclear deal and mocked Washington, D.C., reporters.
