When a family loses their home, their belongings, their love ones it is a tragedy beyond description . We feel sorry for those who face this predicament, one that no one would chose for them self. We are seeing this play out in California.  At last count 6400 homes have been destroyed.  Paradise California will never be the same as a once home to  25,000 has been devastated beyond recognition; 29 are dead at last count, killed by the fires, 300,000 evacuated area wide.

Gov. Jerry Brown said California is requesting aid from the Trump administration. President Donald Trump has blamed “poor” forest management for the fires. Brown told a press briefing that federal and state governments must do more forest management but said that’s not the source of the problem.

“Managing all the forests in everywhere we can does not stop climate change,” Brown said. “And those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies that we’re now witnessing, and will continue to witness in the coming years.”


Governor Moon Beam (Jerry Brown – a legend in his own mind) never misses an opportunity to blame a weather event on Global Climate Change. Neither it be floods, snow, earthquakes, mudslides, illegal immigration and now fires. There is no stock in what he says; like shouting fire in the theater, Moonbeam is blamed every disaster on Global Climate Change. Governor, “you are living in the desert, did anyone forget to tell you that?”

What brings up this diatribe are the fires devastating Northern California. California’s Carr Fire, an 89,194-acre blaze that has killed seven people and twice doubled in size.The Carr Fire burning in Shasta County grew to some 90,000 acres early Sunday, but some residents were being allowed to return home as firefighters continued to battle flames. photo from Mercury News.

During Thursday night’s California gubernatorial debate against Republican Neel Kashkari, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) revealed that nearly 30% of the state’s schoolchildren are either illegal immigrants or do not speak English.

Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were “all welcome in California,” praised his administration’s immigration policies. He said that California is “setting the pace” on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act). Brown then said that these policies were necessary because “about 30%” of schoolchildren in California are “either undocumented or don’t speak English.”

A California Immigrant Policy Center report found that there are 2.6 million illegal immigrants in California (or 26% of all immigrants) while illegal immigrants make up nearly 10% of the state’s workforce, including “38% of the agriculture industry and 14% of the construction industry.”

According to The New York Times, 28% of Californians were born outside the United States in 2012 and, according to Pew Research, “Latinos make up nearly 40% of the state’s population and have made California ‘only the second state, behind New Mexico, where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality.'”
