Yes Jerry Brown Vetoed This Public Safety Bill in 2016

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. — Katy Grimes at flashreport.org 
This is surfacing relative to the 2017 and 2018 wildfire seasons, especially the deadly Camp Fire wildfire that obliterated the town of Paradise, California. 

Senate Bill 1463 would have required the California State Public Utilities Commission to "... prioritize areas in which communities are subject to conditions that increase fire hazards associated with overhead utility facilities when determining areas in which it will require enhanced mitigation measures for wildfire hazards..."

The leftist propaganda engine known as sNOPEs.com says that Ms. Grimes' report is only partially true, because "there is no evidence that Brown's veto contributed to or exacerbated the risk or prevalence of wildfires in California."  Well, yeah.  So for sNOPEs absence of evidence constitutes evidence of absence.  Which is why nobody can seriously consult sNOPEs.com any more. 

But here's what is in the back of my mind: 

As winter sets in and rain puts quietus to the fire season, we are going to go directly into flood-danger hysteria season, because Jerry Brown and his pals in Sacramento have also prevented progress on levee repair or improvement.  Their reasoning always seems to include something about "because ENVIRONMENT that's why."  And when the bad happens, wet or dry, we are supposed to believe we're to blame because Anthropogenic Global Warming!!!11!

"And," you may ask, "How exactly does that all work, again? Explain please?"

"Shut up!," they explain.


Macron puts some French dressing on his internationalist salad

"Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism: Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. In saying 'our interests first, whatever happens to the others,' you erase the most precious thing a nation can have, that which makes it lives, that which causes it to be great and that which is most important: Its moral values."

-- French President Emmanuel Macron, Sunday 11 November 2018,during his speech at the Paris Peace Forum at the Villette Conference Hall in Paris, as part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I.

In other words, Macron is saying that a patriotism that is not internationalism (open borders, EU and UN first, peace-at-any-price) is not patriotism at all.  

Wow.  The dictionary thinks nationalism is a synonym of patriotism.  

That's pretty sick and culturally suicidal.  Which is to say, that's pretty French of him.  


"Birthright Citizenship" – more links piling on

Emily Ward at CNS quotes Mark Levin.

Craig Bannister at CNS has salient quotes from Senator Howard (who helped write the 14th Amendment.

So am I to understand that anchor baby citizenship was a deep state decision from the Kennedy/Johnson  years?  If the decision was made by a Department, then it most certainly can be un-made by the Chief Executive of that department.
