5 of the 6 largest wildfires in California history are burning right now and have already killed over 1,000 with their smoke

5 of the 6 largest wildfires in California history are burning right now. Picture: KYLE GRILLOT/AFP Five of the six largest wildfires in California state history have been sparked in the past two months — and they’re all still raging.The state’s most aggressive fire, August Complex, has so far scorched nearly 860,000 acres of NorCal’s Tehama County — nearly doubling the now second-largest Mendocino Complex in 2018. Rounding out the all-time top six are four other blazes still currently burning. [embedded content] The SCU Lightning Complex has now consumed 396,624 acres near Santa Clara and Alameda counties, while the LNU Lightning Complex has decimated 363,220 acres around Sonoma and Napa counties. Meanwhile, the North Complex has claimed 301,404 acres of Butte, Plumas and Yuma counties, while the Creek Fire — the youngest of the blazes, having started earlier this month — has eaten away 289,695 acres of Fresno and Madera counties.And the destruction is only expected to grow. [embedded content] While the SCU and LNU Lightning complexes were each considered 98% contained as of Sunday and Tuesday, firefighters are still battling to get the other fires under control. The North Complex was deemed 75% contained as of early Wednesday while the Creek Fire was considered 32% contained. The enormous August Complex blaze was still only 39% contained as of Wednesday morning. The top six doesn’t even include the Bobcat Fire, which earlier this week passed 100,000 acres to become one of the largest wildfires in the history of Los Angeles County. The Bobcat FireCumulatively, at least 26 people have been killed and thousands of structures leveled in what’s been a historic California wildfire season. These are hidden deaths The dense wildfire smoke that blanketed the state for weeks in August and early September — contributing to dangerous air quality from the San Francisco Bay area to Sacramento to Fresno and beyond — may have contributed to the deaths of hundreds of Californians and sent thousands more to the emergency room, Stanford University researchers say. Yes! The total cost in terms of human lives and health is likely far larger due to the immense amount of smoke that has been inhaled over the last 3 weeks by the very large number of people living on the West Coast. [embedded content] About 6 million Californians are age 65 or older. Using Medicare data, the researchers say dense concentrations of smoke between the beginning of August and early September contributed to some 1,200 deaths that would not otherwise have happened and 4,800 additional visits to hospitals’ emergency rooms. “These are hidden deaths. These are people who were probably already sick but for whom air pollution made them even sicker,” explains the San Jose Mercury News.

The huge Bobcat Fire burns more than 113,000 acres and threatens 1,000 homes in Los Angeles County and is only 38% contained!

Bobcat fire burns 113,000 acres and at least 29 structures, and is only 38% contained. Picture via TwitterOne of the largest wildfires in Los Angeles County history is threatening more than 1,000 homes in the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of the city. Known at the Bobcat Fire, the blaze has consumed more than 170 square miles since it began Sept. 6. The cause is being investigated. It has burned at least 29 structures, and officials said the number could be as high as 85 when damage assessment teams are able to reach the area. [embedded content] Most of the structures were in the Antelope Valley communities of Cima Mesa, Juniper Hills, Pearblossom and Devil’s Punchbowl, the Los Angeles Times reported. On Tuesday, officials said the fire was pushing hard toward Mount Wilson, home to the Mount Wilson Observatory and what was said to be $1 billion worth of television and radio transmission towers, according to the L.A. Times. The Bobcat Fire was only 38% contained Wednesday morning. It isn’t expected to be fully contained until Oct. 30. #BobcatFire containment more than doubled to 38%, thanks to days of strenuous fireline construction by firefighters working in challenging conditions. Night crews completed critical strategic firing to link containment line from Mt Wilson to HWY 2. https://t.co/APSrKsa0Vn @LACoFD pic.twitter.com/xvusW4zpuX — Angeles_NF (@Angeles_NF) September 23, 2020 The Bobcat Fire has grown more than 56 square miles since Friday, pushed along by gusty winds and fueled by dry vegetation that hasn’t burned in years. The National Weather Service said warm and dry conditions were expected to continue in the area on Tuesday. Southern California is also forecast to see another heat wave early next week, which could worsen fire conditions. About 4,000 people from 1,100 homes have been ordered to evacuate, fire officials said. Residents of Pasadena and the communities of Altadena and Wrightwood have been warned to be ready to flee if the fire approaches them.

It killed two firefighters and destroyed more than 200 structures. The Bobcat Fire was one of 27 major wildfires burning across California on Tuesday, according to the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Since mid-August, the fires have killed 26 people and destroyed more than 6,500 structures, Cal Fire said. The blazes have consumed more than 5,625 square miles.

The left is trying to abolish God

John MacArthur, pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, wrote “Worship, the Ultimate Priority” a number of years ago. His message is timeless, and remains in print. Little did I know that as I prepped to teach my class at church (in person!) that I would find a key purpose of the Left’s demand that churches cease in-person services explicitly laid out in a story told for decades. MacArthur recounts … “A pastor went to see a man who didn’t attend church very faithfully. The man was sitting before a fire, watching the warm glow of the coals. It was a cold winter day, but the coals were red hot, and the fire was warm. The pastor pleaded with the man to be more faithful in meeting with the people of God, but the man didn’t seem to be getting the message. So the pastor took the tongs beside the fireplace, pulled open the screen, and reached in and began to separate all the coals. When none of the coals was touching the others, he stood and watched in silence. In a matter of moments, they were all cold. “That’s what’s happening in your life,” he told the man. “As soon as you isolate yourself from God’s people, the fire goes out.” -MacArthur, John. Worship (p. 144). Moody Publishers. Kindle Edition. This is exactly what we are seeing. Many churches that have been filled with lukewarm Christians will never recover from the lockdowns. Their coals have gone out. Without the regular company of believers, those who have not fully committed themselves to God find themselves weakened and may never come back. I don’t think many of the radical Left have read MacArthur’s book or heard that illustration from the pulpit, but the result is the same. Their rabid hatred makes them celebrate when those who believe differently are harmed. If divine authority is belittled, so much the better. Little do they understand that they are culpable in eternal harms. But the Father of Lies is happy to use his useful idiots to do his work. Churches need to rapidly realize that the pandemic is over. If someone is ill, they should stay home. Otherwise, they should not forsake the assembling together (Hebrews 10:23-25). It is an essential part of keeping the flame of faith burning.

In very winnable CA-7, Buzz Patterson calls on Kevin McCarthy for a hand

This is a no-brainer. Republicans who have a chance of flipping blue seats to red, such as retired Lt. Col Buzz Patterson in CA-07, need the support of congressional leadership. Patterson is currently up in most polls in the purple district in Sacramento that had a Republican in the seat as recently as 2012. But he is getting little to no support from people like House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy who is essentially the gatekeeper of congressional donations. Patterson isn’t bitter, though. He’s ready to not only work with McCarthy but to endorse him for Speaker of the House should Republicans retake control of the lower chamber. In the latest episode of NOQ Report, I was able to sit down (virtually) with the Sacramento Republican and find out what it’s going to take for him to defeat his opponent, Ami Bera. Despite the great news in the polls, Patterson is not sitting back in his hammock hoping for a win. He’s out there talking to people, knocking on doors, and making commitments he intends to keep with the people of Sacramento. But he needs our help and he needs the help of congressional leaders like McCarthy in order to bring the seat back to the GOP. Bera has been embroiled in controversies every since winning the seat. He has survived politically, barely winning some of his previous elections with the help of ballot harvesting. But this year, he’s facing a challenger who knows how to fight and knows how to win. Patterson’s career, which included a stint in the White House carrying the “nuclear football” for President Clinton, has always been filled with success. If the GOP is going to take back control of the House, it’s incumbent on Kevin McCarthy to step up and help people like Buzz Patterson, who is in a very tight race. Otherwise, we’ll be stuck with at least two more years of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy.

How Mike Cargile plans to turn CA-35 red, plus why he is open about QAnon

Nearly every candidate running for office who has espoused anything related to QAnon has backed away from talking about the group in recent months, but not Mike Cargile. The Republican candidate for CA-35 is not embarrassed about wanting to end child sex slavery, fight the Deep State, or support President Trump, which is why he sees no problem in what QAnon discusses. In this interview for Freedom Discourse, he and JD discussed strategies he’s using to make a deep blue California district see the light and realize that voting for him is a way for residents to vote for their own prosperity. The district itself is one that should be perfect for Republicans. With about a 60/40 split between Hispanic and Caucasian voters, the area is largely socially conservative. But more importantly, around 80% of them are homeowners who do not agree with the rioting around the nation. They believe in individual rights, property protection, and a government that will leave them to their own business. Unfortunately, the Republican message has not been properly transmitted over the years to Hispanic voters. Cargile hopes to change that this election cycle. In 2020, strange things are happening. But with people like Mike Cargile leading the charge to convince Hispanic voters of how his Republican values will benefit them more than his opponent’s radical leftist views, we could see CA-35 flip red.

Cost of Living Continues to Rise RAPIDLY As Americans Struggle to Get By

Mac SlavoSeptember 15th, 2020SHTFplan.com The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released new data that says the cost of living is going up as the main street economy crashes and the dollar loses its purchasing power. This also comes as more and more Americans continue to struggle to get by in the aftermath of the government’s reaction to the scamdemic. The new numbers released are comparing the consumer price index, which is essentially the price of common things we pay for all averaged together, of 2019 to that of 2020. The number has gone up. The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.4 percent in August on a seasonally adjusted basis after rising 0.6 percent in July, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 1.3 percent before seasonal adjustment. –BLS.gov Since the Federal Reserve, the central banks, is continuing to bail out corporations and create money out of thin air, inflation and costs for basic necessities will continue to rise. Some areas of the economy are being hit harder than others too. The cost of food has jumped in the Bay Area of California, propelled by meat, poultry, and fish prices that have skyrocketed, joining soaring electricity costs, according to a report by Mercury News. Meat, fish, and poultry prices have soared a whopping 17.4 percent over the past 12 months ending in August in the Bay Area. This means that these prices are at a super-heated pace that’s 11 times greater than the region’s cost of living during the same one-year period. Because the cost of living is going up as the economy is struggling for everyday folks, it’s important to make a plan. Preparedness should include financial emergencies. Even though the dollar is crashing, having a little extra money on hand to be able to pay 3-6 months’ worth of bills will help you get through tough times.

Trump Set to Visit California to Assess Damage Done By Deadly Wildfires

Firefighters watch the Bobcat Fire after an evacuation was ordered for the residents of Arcadia, Calif., September 13, 2020. (Patrick T. Fallon/Reuters)President Trump is set to visit California on Monday to assess the damage caused by almost 100 wildfires burning through the West that have killed at least 35 people. Several people remain missing in the region as the president heads to McClellan Park in Sacramento County to receive a briefing on the fires. Advertisement Trump had approved a Major Disaster Declaration for the state, beginning on August 14, to allow for individual and public assistance. More than 4,100 structures in the state have been destroyed since then, according to USA Today. “Since mid-August, President Trump and Governor Newsom have spoken by phone and the White House and FEMA have remained in constant contact with State and local officials throughout the response to these natural disasters,” White House press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement. “The President continues to support those who are battling raging wildfires in a locally-executed, state-managed, and federally-supported emergency response,” Deere added. Advertisement The Trump administration has approved ten Fire Management Assistance Grants as well as 24 grants for other states to provide a 75 percent federal cost share for controlling the fires, Fox News reported. More than 26,000 federal personnel and 230 helicopters were sent to the region. The president has remained largely silent on the fires since criticizing California for its forest management at a Pennsylvania rally in August. Advertisement “I said you’ve got to clean your floors, you got to clean your forests,” he said. “Maybe we’re just going to have to make them pay for it because they don’t listen to us.” More than 16,750 firefighters are battling 29 major wildfires across California, where 3.3 million acres have been burned in wildfires since the start of the year.  Colorado, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming have also received federal assistance in fighting wildfires. Firefighters struggled to contain fires on Monday against high winds and low humidity. Advertisement In California, smoke has turned the sky an eerie shade of orange, as meteorologist Dan Borsum warned that air quality in the region may not improve until October, according to USA Today. As dozens remain missing in Oregon and California, authorities have expressed concern that even while some fires began to recede in the states, the death toll may continue to climb.  Twenty-four people have died in California, while Oregon and Washington state have recorded ten deaths and one death, respectively.

Judge Allows L.A. County to Temporarily Shut Down Church

A California judge granted Los Angeles County a victory over Grace Community Church on Thursday by temporarily suspending indoor worship at the church. The judge issued a preliminary injunction halting any indoor worship services in the church as the legal questions surrounding the case are decided. A final decision is expected next week after hearings on the case were held on Sept. 4. Recent Stories in Coronavirus The decision cited the health threat of the coronavirus and argued that the risk of the virus spreading outweighed the harm from restrictions on worship. "The potential consequences of community spread of COVID-19 and concomitant risk of death to members of the community—associated and unassociated with the Church—outweighs the harm that flows from the restriction on indoor worship caused by the County Health Order," the decision stated. The legal representation for the church argued that the church has been treated like a second-class citizen and the government gave preferential treatment to Black Lives Matter protesters. "While the judge did go out of his way to repeatedly state that he is not ruling on the merits, only a ruling at this very preliminary stage, [Pastor John MacArthur] is still harmed because he has every right to hold church," Jenna Ellis, special counsel for the Thomas More Society, said. "Church is essential, and no government agent has the runaway, unlimited power to force churches to close indefinitely." Los Angeles County praised the decision and said that they "look forward" to working with the church. "We went to court only after significant efforts to work with the leaders of Grace Community Church to protect public health. We now look forward to working with church leaders on a plan to move services outdoors with physical distancing and the use of face coverings, which will allow worshipers to gather for religious observances in a manner that is lower risk and consistent with public health directives," the county said in a statement. The injunction marked a victory for the county, which has been taking more aggressive action against the church over the past couple of weeks. The county terminated a decades-old lease with the church for a portion of the church's parking lot and also fined the church for having misplaced signs regarding coronavirus guidance.

11 Facts That Prove That The Apocalyptic Wildfires On The West Coast Are Unlike Anything We Have Ever Seen Before

At this hour, a thick blanket of smoke from the horrific wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington is covering much of the western portion of the country.  U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon has used the word “apocalyptic” to describe the utter devastation that has been caused by these fires, and that is not an exaggeration whatsoever.  There are some small towns that have literally been wiped off the face of the map during the past week, and some of them may never be rebuilt.  This has already been a wildfire season like no other along the west coast, and we are just now entering the heart of the 2020 fire season.  It is very difficult to imagine another couple months of this, but that is potentially what we are facing.   By the time that it is over, nobody living on the west coast will ever forget the chaos that this wildfire season has caused.  Some of the largest fires have been burning for weeks, and all of the smoke is having a dramatic impact on large cities such as San Francisco… The cityscape resembles the surface of a distant planet, populated by a masked alien culture. The air, choked with blown ash, is difficult to breathe. There is the Golden Gate Bridge, looming in the distance through a drift-smoke haze, and the Salesforce Tower, which against the blood-orange sky appears as a colossal spaceship in a doomsday film. San Francisco, and much of California, has never been like this. Yes, every year there are wildfires, but what we are watching this year is on an entirely different level.  The following are 11 facts that prove the apocalyptic wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington and unlike anything we have seen before… #1 According to the National Interagency Fire Center, more than 30,000 firefighters are currently contending with 94 large fires that have burned more than 4.6 million acres in 12 western states. #2 40 of those large fires have prompted evacuation orders, and many have been forced to flee “with just the clothes on their backs” because the fires have moved so rapidly. #3 The August Complex Fire has already officially become the largest wildfire in the history of the state of California, and at this hour it continues to rage out of control. #4 Five of the ten largest wildfires in California history have happened in 2020. #5 In Oregon, 40,000 people have already been evacuated, and hundreds of thousands more have been told to prepare to potentially evacuate. #6 On Saturday, the air quality index reading in Salem, Oregon was 512.  That measurement was “off the charts”, because the scale only goes up to 500. #7 Prior to 2020, we had only witnessed a few “fire tornadoes” in all of U.S. history, but now they are occurring “every week or two”. #8 According to the Washington Post, some wildfire plumes have risen “up to 10 miles high”, and that is definitely extremely unusual. #9 About a week after a fire tornado hit the Huntington Lake area, some fires are still burning root systems underground “at more than 1,500 degrees”… A week later, Donnelly said Saturday that the Creek Fire continues to burn in the area, with some fires occurring underground and attacking the root system of trees at more than 1,500 degrees. “Fire inspectors from the office of the State Fire Marshall stated that fire behavior in the Kennolyn area is the worst they had witnessed in their career,” Donnelly wrote in a post that was shared on social media, timestamped as 11 a.m. Saturday. “Unfortunately, it will be some time before it is safe to enter the burned areas.” #10 Even though we still have quite a bit of time to go, this has already been the worst wildfire season in California’s history and the second worst wildfire season in Washington’s history. #11 Sadly, the fire season still has another four months remaining, and there are at least seven weeks left in “prime fire season”. Of course the list above simply cannot express the incredible amount of pain and suffering that these fires have caused for so many people. When a reporter followed Betty Stevens of Phoenix, Oregon back to the spot where her home once stood, what they discovered was too horrible for words… Betty Stevens stumbled down the street that had until a few hours ago seemed so familiar, her feet crunching through ash and debris as she entered the smoking remains of her neighborhood. There were melted street signs. Trees burned down to stumps. Power lines across the road. And everywhere she turned, choking, acrid smoke. Sobbing behind the face mask she normally wears for her job as a hospital respiratory therapist helping coronavirus patients, Stevens, 31, video recorded herself earlier this week as she stumbled through the neighborhood, raw emotion in her voice, sometimes unable to form words, moaning in obvious pain. Could you imagine losing your home and everything inside of it? Over the next several weeks, fires will continue to sweep across our western states and many more homes and buildings will likely be lost. For many, it will be the final straw.  As I have discussed previously, large numbers of people have already moved away from the west coast, and there are others that are seriously considering doing so… Monica Gupta Mehta and her husband, an entrepreneur, have been through tech busts and booms, earthquakes, wildfire seasons and power outages. But it was not until the skies darkened and cast an unsettling orange light on their Palo Alto home earlier this week that they ever considered moving their family of five somewhere else. “For the first time in 20-something years, the thought crossed our minds: Do we really want to live here?” said Mehta, who is starting an education tech company. As a very small child, I spent several years on the west coast, and I will always have a great fondness for how it was in the old days.  But if you have read my new book, you already know how I feel about the west coast’s future. There are very few areas on the entire globe that have been blessed with more natural beauty than the west coast of the United States.  Unfortunately, natural beauty is not everything. Here in 2020, it has just been one thing after another, and the west coast has been hit harder than just about anywhere else. Many are hoping that better times are ahead in 2021, but I definitely would not be counting on that. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

Dems’ Hypocrisy! California City Gyms Open While Private Gyms Ordered Shut

When it comes to the COVID-19 related shutdowns, it often seems as if we are living by two different sets of rules. If a Democrat is involved, every excuse in the world is made for their inability to follow the rules that they are setting. For example, Nancy Pelosi decided to visit a hair salon and she was not wearing a mask at the time. This goes against the rules that the Democrats are making for everyone else. To make matters worse, those who own private gyms in San Francisco are still being told that they cannot open their doors. If the gym is owned by the government, on the other hand? Those have been open for at least two months now. Sounds like a bit of a double standard to us. These private businesses are struggling to survive, while government operated gyms are doing just fine. City employees are able to use the gyms that are owned by San Francisco, which puts a huge damper in the amount of business that these owners are able to enjoy. “It’s shocking, it’s infuriating,” says Crossfit Golden Gate’s Danielle Rabkin. “Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking,” she continued. Rabkin has even asked police officers in her region if they are in need of a place to work out. She heard that the gym at their station was reportedly closed. According to a text message exchange, this is not entirely true. The officers have maintained access to a gym at the SFPD Northern District Police Station, which is located on Fillmore Street. The police have established the necessary cleaning protocols and have set an occupancy limit for their gyms. MX3 Fitness in the Castro owner Dave Karakker is not pleased with the current situation either. “It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do,” says Karakker and it is hard to argue with that assessment. This is the sort of tyranny that makes people wonder if Democrats are able to be trusted. So far, it seems like they only have their best interests at heart (and no one else’s). Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus. Oh? https://t.co/oaowSO5Fmz — Nick Short (@PoliticalShort) September 7, 2020 Rules are supposed to be followed by everyone but the Democrats do not live by this sort of creed. In their mind, this crisis is a chance to keep everyone else at home and they can simply continue to live their life as normal. The virus had led to the sort of unprecedented interruption to public life that few of us have ever seen but these interruptions only apply to the activities Democrats do not agree with. Perhaps everything should have remained closed and all of this confusion could have been avoided? That would have been too easy, though. The Democrat leaders were not about to practice what they preach. To be fair, expecting everyone to stay at home until a vaccine is ready for mass distribution was probably not wise. That does not mean that double standards were necessary. That’s why so many people are convinced that the virus is only being used as an excuse to shut down the bustling economy that President Trump had established. Now that they have their opportunity to grind everything to a screeching halt, they are not going to let it go anytime soon. In fact, there are already rumors circulating that the nation will not be reopened until after the election has already taken place. The fix is in and people are starting to feel powerless to do anything about it. Small businesses are shriveling up and dying. People don’t know where their next paycheck (or even their next meal) is coming from. The unrest is rising and Biden is not the one who will be able to steer the ship back in the right direction.

Man Arrested For Arson, Throwing Molotov Cocktails At California Republican Women’s Organization Building

A California man was arrested and charged with arson and “igniting a destructive device with the intent to destroy property” on Thursday for a May attack on the East Valley Republican Women Federated building in La Quinta, California. The District Attorney’s office in the County of Riverside announced the arrest of the suspect, Carlos Espriu, by the Riverside County Gang Impact Team and the DA’s Special Activity Unit, and stated that he is being held at a Riverside, CA detention center on a $1 million bail. Espriu is also facing federal charges after a criminal complaint by the U.S. Attorney’s Office mentioned his name. The fire on May 31 was determined to be “intentionally set and caused by an incendiary device.” According to reports, “investigators found three glass bottles containing ignitable liquid inside the building – one bottle that was broken and burned, the other two still intact.” CAL FIRE firefighters were called to the scene shortly after 1:30 a.m. and were able to put out the fire. Espriu reportedly tweeted about his desire to burn something before the attack, saying “I wanna go burn s— n get hit with tear gas,” according to Fox News. An audio recording from June also reportedly caught Espriu describing “how he made the bombs and shaved his facial hair to hide his identity after surveillance video was shown on media.” A video titled “FIREBOMBED” posted by building owners shows the suspect smashing windows with a bat and then lighting objects on fire and throwing them through the busted windows. The inside appears to catch fire and the suspect leaves the scene. [embedded content] “This senseless, baseless act of domestic terrorism, which involved smashed windows and three Molotov cocktails, has caused our club untold financial hardship, and we are now forced to spend our limited resources on hiring nighttime security to protect our headquarters and its members,” said Joy Miedecke, East Valley Republican Women Federated, in a statement. According to the group’s GoFundMe page, the EVRWF is being targeted by “multiple harassing phone calls daily, eggs thrown at the windows, and drive-by shouting accompanied by obscene gestures.”

What Life Is Like In California’s Post-Apocalyptic Landscape

I woke up in the morning wondering about the dark red rays coming from behind the curtain. While I expected the darkened sky, the degree of darkness and the fact that I couldn’t smell fire surprised me. Northern California fires have become increasingly common over the last decade as a consequence of mismanaging the environment. Native Americans staged controlled burns to safeguard their villages and create favorable hunting conditions. We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel accumulated in the wilderness that megafires began burning year after year. Year after year, California Gov. Gavin Newsom has blamed global warming and utility companies for the ensuing deadly disasters. So far, the summer of 2020 has been a cool one, and no power lines sparked any fires. But since dry lightning strikes pierced the air in August, the state has been ablaze. The difference today is that smoke is stuck high in the atmosphere, blocking the sun, but allowing the San Francisco Bay Area to breathe under the layers of fog. Large flakes of ashes fall onto the ground. An ominous orange glow has filled the sky over the Bay Area in Northern California as relentless wildfires rip through Western states. Here’s the latest: https://t.co/olPrAUKS0B pic.twitter.com/ao52Rz1zGm — The New York Times (@nytimes) September 9, 2020 Red sky, like Mars… This is an unaltered video of the current fires in Mendocino County, California pic.twitter.com/GE6GOC5jG8 — TheSpaceAcademy.org✨🔭 (@ThespaceAcad) September 9, 2020 I had plans to meet a girlfriend for breakfast, and both of us were to bring our kids. I’m not the type to cancel a much-needed social appointment in the midst of a lockdown. I thought about it, though. At nine in the morning we were out on the sidewalk, photographing the tree leaves against the glowing orange air. Cars were passing by with headlights on. Streetlights shone. I had no problem finding parking in what was even a day ago a fairly busy downtown area, even though over the last half-year we have been on a downward spiral. The San Francisco Bay Area is the home to the earliest, and the most restrictive, lockdowns in the nation. The six Bay Area counties imposed the very first American shelter-in-place orders. Those were followed by mask mandates. Initially, residents were mandated to wear masks indoors, and within six feet from each other. At the time, the majority ignored the outdoor masking laws. Then, just as the talk of relaxing shelter-in-place restrictions filled the spring air, the Black Lives Matter riots started, and stores boarded up, plastering BLM logos on the plywood blocking their windows. The riots faded quickly — Antifa rioters who are at the forefront of the actions can’t afford to live around here — and, once again, there was talk of opening. Then Alameda County passed new masking laws, requiring people to wear facial coverings when up to 30 feet away from others. If the earlier regulations allowed strangers to kind of, sort of share the sidewalk, the new ones pretty much made it impossible for two people to show their faces from across the street and still be in compliance with the law. More masks went up, including on drivers alone in their cars. Then some Karens learned about the need to protect their eyes from the virus and donned sunglasses, leaving not a sign of their humanity exposed. We’ve been trained. Over all these months, children had to be entertained. At first, they took to drawing rainbows on the sidewalk and talking to their friends from across the street. Once the riots started, parents taught them to paint BLM logos to display on their front lawns. Every day a new one would go up in my neighborhood of ordinary upper-middle-class East Bay parents, most of them white and Asian, raising their kids with what amounts to a new religion. Then, just in time for the fire season, restaurants opened for outdoor dining. So there I was, sitting at a table under a street lamp, clutching a cup of coffee, pretending to be “actively eating or drinking,” but in reality talking to a friend. How is it not Armageddon, we mused, staring into the darkened sky. Or the ninth plague. Some called it a nuclear winter. Cars kept their headlights on. This is what skies looked like this morning in Northern California, where wildfires are spreading at an astonishing rate. https://t.co/gSYmk1364w pic.twitter.com/JSQqF7VoVh — The New York Times (@nytimes) September 9, 2020 Amidst all the social and sensory deprivation we’ve experienced since March, this felt the most unreal. A morning that dark would feel normal in the north in the winter, and both of us are northern girls. My friend said she spoke with her mom, who complained that it started to rain, and days are shorter now, and chilly, and she no longer wants to go outside. Well, nobody wanted to be outside here either, apparently, more so than since the start of the pandemic scare. Something in our brains was telling us to stay in. On the plus side, last weekend, shortly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was caught maskless getting her hair blown, claiming ignorance about the local quarantine laws, Alameda County permitted indoor salon operations. We wondered if it was the astonished reaction of the national media outlets — “Who knew it was still illegal in the Bay Area? So unreasonable!” — that shamed the county officials into amending regulations. Did you know that since March there have been 83 COVID deaths in San Francisco County (population just under 1 million), and 296 in Alameda County (population 1.5 million)? All of a sudden we noticed an old man snapping pictures of us. He said he was photographing the weird fire skies, and that our table was merely in the background. We asked him to stop, after which he moved away, but continued shooting. Seniors are especially lonely right now, and at least this New Normal sky gives him something to do. Anyway, we left — and immediately proceeded taking pictures of each other against the saturated orange sky. Sweet Meteor of Death, when did you strike Oakland? Then we drove to my house and went out to walk the dog. Normally I see neighbors walking dogs, and kids on the swings in their front yards. Maybe some bicyclists, or a few joggers. Not today. The only other pedestrians were two photographers documenting the hellscape. One of my neighbors popped out to snap a picture. The colors were off, I noticed. The grass had a bluish tint, and tree leaves were shimmery silver under the street light. According to the forecast, it was supposed to warm up during the day, but it didn’t. What is this nuclear winter? Under the morning twilight sky, fully concealed faces are moving past BLM logos and raised fists painted by children. It’s a total triumph of the political over the personal. A few hours later, after checking social media for the annual Bay Area fire season pictures, I noticed the crows flying in large formations. Probably heading south. Something in their brains told them the summer is over. Time to leave California.

Canceling Netflix over ‘Cuties’ is the most important battle in the culture war today

This is the culture war. It’s right in front of our faces. The movie “Cuties” now playing on Netflix is nothing short of pedophile-fodder that is being used, literally as you read this, by some sicko for his pleasure. That’s how perverse many scenes in this movie are. #CancelNetflix was trending yesterday as many concerned Americans called for financial punishment against the entertainment company. On the latest episode of NOQ Report, we did what we said we were going to do. We canceled live on the air. We strongly encourage everyone who reads this article, watches the video, or hears the podcast to do the same. Hashtags aren’t enough. Righteous indignation won’t cut it this time. We have to act, and that means Netflix getting cancellation notices from the masses. If they are not severely hurt by their decision to air this filth, we have lost the battle in the culture war. It’s that simple. The pain must be tangible and enduring. Otherwise, we’re just doing it to feel good about ourselves. Meanwhile, cultural Marxism will continue to spread. It will continue to win. Three major peace deals makes this 9/11 a celebration of what America can accomplish The second segment can be summed up with this Tweet: In 19 years I have never politicized #September11. This year, it's important to note in the last month, this administration has brought the Israel-UAE peace deal, Serbia-Kosovo normalization (thank you @RichardGrenell) and now Pompeo is working on Afghanistan.#911Peace — JD Rucker (@JDRucker) September 11, 2020 Interview with Joy Villa Our Freedom First Network cohorts at Flockop had a great interview of singer Joy Villa that we had to put into our show. Multiple arson investigations ignored as media pushes climate change cause of west coast fires In the fourth segment, Tammy and I discussed the fact that arson has been blamed for at least some of the fires that are engulfing west coast states. Reuters reported one investigation into a major fire and AmGreatness reported an arrest of an Antifa arsonist. There is likely much more to the story than that. There are few things we’ve done this week more satisfying than cancelling our Netflix account live on the air. This war against Cultural Marxism has a target we can truly affect immediately. It’s incumbent on right-minded folks to take action. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going. Check out the NEW NOQ Report Podcast. American Conservative Movement Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
