    Hey senile Joe Biden you and California Democrat Nancy Pelosi are both career politicians and perfect examples of incompetent liberal democrats. The real facts are Democrat California Governor Newsom mismanaged the entire state of California for the past year and that’s why it’s on fire🔥 now. As for your global warming nonsense: Record Cold of minus -86F in Antarctica Last week 9-11-2020 as liberal bias news & democrats continue to push climate warming baloney. California is on “Fire” 🔥because of poor forest management, carelessness and utility wiring that is faulty throughout the state. President Trump told ignorant, incompetent California democrat governor Newsom last year to cleanup all the dead growth in California forests. Did he? President Trump was correct and the truth hurts.
    Today’s current Antarctica temperature Now -86 °F
    Snow flurries. Low clouds.

    Lack of resources? No, Dems let the arsonists out of prison, again.
    Lopez was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of reckless burning and disorderly conduct in the second degree.

    Lopez was later released and then started the six additional fires on Monday morning, according to police.

    In Australia, the Aborigines have been doing controlled burns for tens of thousands of years to manage their land. Fuel loads have to be managed. This is common sense.

    The Federal government owns 53% of Oregon. Seems they need to do better land management. That and freaky people need to stop setting fires.

    Or maybe If our state would stop using all of its money and funding on political correctness, giving immigrants free homes and cell plans, and acrually put effort into back burning and cleaning up our forests our state wouldn’t be burning so bad.

    Funny how one of the people starting fires was at the Portland protests but that doesn’t mean anything right?

    Hiden Biden & wealthy Democrat funded arsonists are responsible for these fires. 7 anarchists have been caught so far setting fires.

    pension-poor California can't afford professional forest management.
    California's forest management system is elementary: BURN, BABY, BURN!
    at least, the el dorado and bobcat fires cleaned up our flammable forest debris.
