California Governor Jerry Brown declares a state of emergency for Ventura County as a massive wildfire continues to burn out of control on the state’s central coast.

The so-called “Thomas Fire” has burned more than 55,000 acres, and is still zero percent contained.

More than 150 structures have been destroyed or damaged, and 27,000 people have been evacuated.

While officials could not confirm any fire-related deaths, they did say one firefighter was sent to the hospital Monday, but has since been released.

A red-flag warning will be in effect until Thursday as extremely dry conditions coupled with winds over 50 miles-per-hour are making it challenging for more than 1,100 firefighters at the scene.

“We have extremely high winds, very, very low relatively humidity; and our fuel conditions out there are absolutely about as bad as they could be for spire spreads, so, we’re very concerned about the wind popping up again today and pushing the fire a little bit further towards the west,” announced Chief Mark Lorenzen of the Ventura County Fire Department.

There is no word yet on what sparked this fire.

Meanwhile, fire crews are also battling a wildfire in Los Angeles County that is forcing the evacuations of roughly 150,000 people.

This fire has been pinned as the so-called “Creek Fire,” and began on Tuesday north of the city of Sylmar.

The “Creek Fire” has burned more than 11,000 acres so far, and is also zero percent contained.

Officials have confirmed that four firefighters were injured in the blaze, and remain in stable condition.

At least 30 structures have been destroyed or damaged as dry Santa Ana winds continue to push the blaze through the foothills.

The fire prompted the closure of part of Interstate 210.

    God forbid they do any fire mitigation. I remember when we had a huge fire here in Colorado and I was talking with an evacuee about how he would be doing mitigation now if his place survived and was informed that he lived in the woods and that was what insurance was for . Probably from ca .

  • Is this terrorism or arson? Does anyone know?

    • TexasDeplorable1134

      Well, ensuing chaos is the underlying genre of this day and age for the left, I would not be surprised by either.

    • Flagfriend

      Probably neither. California endured 5 years of drought before last winter, taking wild vegetation on the hillsides to minimal levels. Then, with record rainfall during the winter of 2016-17, the spring brought an explosion of vegetation everywhere. Seeds that had been waiting four years to germinate and sprout, all did. And, as usual, California got dry as a bone throughout the summer, killing and drying out all that material and turning it into the best kindling you could imagine. Add to that mix 38 million people, who in any numbers of ways, on purpose or by accident, could present the spark that lights the kindling that lights the fire that burns the house. Quite honestly, I’m surprised there hasn’t been more wildfires reported through the late summer and into the fall.

      And with respect to the property damage, all those people who run to California to have success in business or entertainment or any number of other profitable fields, and find success, would prefer to separate themselves from the “riff-raff” down in the hot and smog filled valleys, so they build their mansions up on the hillsides, right smack dab next to all the dry vegetation I spoke of earlier.

    • Pezgun

      Hmmm. At the risk of being inflammatory, notice what areas are burning and what areas are in no danger at all. If there is terrorism, it’s likely political or even racial rather than international.

  • TexasDeplorable1134

  • 2EdgedSword

    Sanctuary California is not part of America. CA citizens have abandoned their duties to support and defend the Constitution against domestic enemies some of which are brazen foreign criminals. Mexicans are cowardly to the extent they run away from their own nation rather than revolt and clean up the mess that is their own. Californians have been infected with that contagious disease of cowardice. Burn it to the roots in the ground. No one will shed a tear.

  • turnipweed

    This is a great example of the destructiveness of Liberal policies. They force residents to adhere to a strict fire code inside their homes at their own expense. Stupidly, they won’t let them extend fire safety to nearby forests. Residents should sue the CA government for wrongful death and property loss.

    No federal aid for sanctuary cities. Provide funding to surrounding, non sanctuary state’s so they can provide aid, but none if it goes to California. Send in federal troops to provide relief, but no money directly to California.

    • turnipweed

      Where I live, the woods can burn without threatening any homes. Homeowners are allowed to thin out the brush near their homes. If you touch a tree over there, you are in big trouble. If you kill a person or damage a building, you get away with it.

  • Andrew Moore8

    It is not about being Republican or a mentally ill libtard….It is about the state of CA giving in to sin, ignoring Gods laws, and becoming the modern day Sodom and Gomorrah and God raining down his anger upon it to get the people to change their sinning way…..if they don’t then God shall destroy it just like he did Sodom and Gomorrah….Tell your parents and their neighbors they should pack up and move because I personally think CA is to far gone down the he// path to ever recover.

      • TexasDeplorable1134

        Never assume that only the “smart” people leave Texas. Quite a few of the residents of California are not exactly happy with what is going on there either. If not for the highly populated, under-educated areas, the liberal, regressive ideology would have died long ago.

  • Gray Bryson

    Isnt calif succeeded from US? Hey pay for it yourselves.

  • Andrew Moore8

    Yes AAD….God does hate….How do I know that? Because the bible teaches me so…..Read Hosea 9:15 and you will see….it says: “Every evil of theirs is in Gilgal; there I began to hate them. Because of the wickedness of their deeds I will drive them out of my house. I will love them no more; all their princes are rebels.

    Actually start at Hosea 8 because there you will see that it is God talking.

  • Just A Guy

    Aiding and abetting illegal aliens or fixing dams and preventing wildfires? Hmmmm. Let’s go ahead and spend 30+ billion dollars on illegal aliens. If we have an emergency we’ll just get the federal government to pay for it with the rest of the nation’s tax money.

    Seems this has become a way of life for Californians. Undoubtedly, they’ll just rebuild and do it all over again when the brush grows back.

    Godspeed to the firefighters and emergency crews who risk their lives for these people every year.

    California offends our Creator God like no other state in this nation. It is governed by evil Democratic Party Politicians who have sold their souls to Satan.Their is no other state that has gone so completely into the “Culture of Death” like California. George Soros bought and paid for every Democratic Party politician in Sacramento, including the governor to get the filthy Doctor and Pharmacist assisted suicide law that nobody but George Soros wanted. This evil law makes murderers of our doctors and Pharmacists. Add abortion, euthanasia, mercy killing, pornography and homosexuality to the mix and you have offenses to God in biblical proportions. California has turned its back on God and HE has withdrawn HIS blessings.

And as is very well known, California is itself a calamity due to the San Andreas fault-line.

    Liberal/Progressive/Democrat California either,,,,, flooded with mud, plain flooded, dried up or burning in Hell’s Fire and they haven’t yet figured out why ? They can twist and turn Man’s Law to suit their evil purposes, they can legalize Sin using Man’s Law but when you openly flaunt God’s Law ,,,,, there is a price to be paid.

    • All American

      Moonbeam is more focused on everything that goes against the American Taxpayers needs! He is focused on his own agenda⬇️

  • Hottotrote

    Before all those fools who run this state are threw all of CA will have burned to the ground! They are taking money that should go to land management and sending it to their off shore accounts.
    CA citizens are doomed!

        Thanks. It was giving me a headache.

    • All American

      It appears to be so… the citizens that have active grey matter should revolt

  • Aldo

    IDEA: Take the thousands of illegal lazy good for nothing refugees and immigrants and MAKE THEM HELP GET THE FIRE UNDER CONTROL – Oh that would mean “work” and calif, aclu, etc. will probably call that racist bigoted and unconstitutional !!! F calif fer sure

    • Bud

      The libtards call it involuntary servitude. Never mind that it is involuntary servitude for the taxpayers to be forced to work to support the ingrates.

    • All American

      Great thought!! If they are living off the taxpayers they should be required to give their time freely to the state for any projects and needs!

  • Andrew Moore8

    Maybe if you weren’t spending all your money on protecting illegal immigration you would have the money to hire more firefighters….You reap what you sow…..God hates CA and is trying to burn it to the ground and send all the libtard snowfelchers to he//.

    • Oh, Andrew ~ God does Not hate. God is a positive, not a negative. He gave humans brains for their protection and advancement (and he gave us free will with which to use those brains). These unfortunate disasters are the result of humans not using our God given gifts.

      • Andrew Moore8

        So you are telling me God didn’t destroy Sodom and Gomorrah because of his hate of sin? I would think that he hated the sin which was present so much that he decided to eradicate it even though he loved his children which were led astray……Could CA be the very same except with a different name?

        • I see, yes, a fair assessment if one believes that it was God who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Hmmm, I believe one shouldn’t blame God for what mankind has wrought. But that’s just me – my personal belief – and I do apologize for appearing to force same on anyone here. My bad.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Genesis 19:13 tells us it was God who instructed the angels which visited Job to destroy both cities and everyone in them.

          • Living in the Times

            Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained
            upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire
            from the LORD out of heaven;

          • Andrew Moore8

            I can see where you think the LORD did the destroying….however Genesis 19:13 tells you that the servants of God (angels)were sent to destroy it.

            12 The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

          • Living in the Times

            The fire came from Heaven…not the angels. They were sent to find any remaining good people. Once they completed their mission, they instructed Lot and his family to leave because that was all that was found to be “good”. Then the fire rained from heaven. Lot’s wife looked back to the city despite instructions from the angels not to do so…she turned to a pillar of salt. The fire was sent by God as stated in previous scripture. Genesis 19:24

            Genesis 19
            tells the story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot,
            Abraham’s nephew, lived in Sodom with his family. His daughters were
            engaged to local men. Lot was sitting at the gate of Sodom, the area
            where financial and judicial transactions took place, when two angels
            came into town. Lot invited them to stay with his family. After a rather
            exciting evening, the angels made sure Lot, his wife, and his two
            daughters left before God destroyed the city (Genesis 19:13).
            As they fled, the angels warned them, “Escape for your life! Do not
            look behind you, and do not stay anywhere in the valley; escape to the
            mountains, or you will be swept away” (Genesis 19:17).

          • granddad1

            Well then along those line those of the Nazi hierarchy didn’t actually kill anyone either but man sure held them responsible.

          • Andrew Moore8

            The Nai hierarchy made their choice between good and evil on their own….and they chose wrong…..Look at what god did to them…Did he not smite the all so powerful Nazi regime and force them to take their own lives which condemned them to an eternity in purgatory? Not really a place I want to spend my eternity, how about you?

          • Living in the Times

            God DID destroy Sodom and Gomorrah..fire reigned down from heaven.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Well, Yes…but….God didn’t actually do the destruction…..but he instructed his angles which visited Lot that night to destroy it…..and since the angles are Gods servants you would have to say it was God who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

          • Harvey Gamel

            the aliens were warning us about an asteroid or some such.,….

            Just asking.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Nobody is blaming God….We already know he did it because he has told us he did it in the bible, so there is really no reason to assess blame….What we should be doing is learning so it never happens again…..but alas, as you can see from some on here that lessons are sometimes learned the hard way.

        • Hottotrote

          Sodom & Gomorrah was a natural disaster. YOU really need to catch up with research!

          • Andrew Moore8

            Isn’t CA a natural disaster as well then??? You call it a potato I will call it a patato

          • Andrew Moore8

            So you were there? You witnessed this great natural disaster which destroyed two cities? Would this be the same research that said salt was good for me? Or the research that says salt is bad for me? Or perhaps it is the same research that said eggs were good for me…..or perhaps the research that says eggs are high in cholesterol and I should not eat a lot of them…Or perhaps it is the researchers who told us that the earth was flat? Or perhaps it was the researchers who told us that the sun revolves around the earth?..Are these the same researchers which you choose to believe?

          • Living in the Times

            Good answer!

          • Living in the Times

            You really need to read the Bible..WOW!!

          • Harvey Gamel

            No, everyone needs to STOP relying on the bible and other such crap, and take personal responsibility for the evil things you do and stop trying to blame some mystical fairies and such….

          • Andrew Moore8

            Be my guest Harvey….Believe in whatever you want to believe in or disbelieve in….But I got news for you…..The bible and your belief in personal responsibility aren’t far apart at all my brother….The bible teaches us just that, that we are personally responsible for not only ourselves but for others as well…..I will pray for you as well, but unfortunately I think you are probably already to far gone.

          • Scotty

            Good people of good conscience Don’t need a diety to worship. God is in fact your concience. And it’s expressed by your ability and WILLINGNESS to love and respect others. In that way, we’re ALL god.

          • Andrew Moore8

            ummmmm, I would have to disagree with you on that….

          • Scotty

            That’s ok. Opinions are like a$$holes, we all have one.

          • Andrew Moore8

            and they all usually stink.

          • See Kahlil Gibran on God-self and Pygmy-self.

          • caser4liberty

            I think you have that a little backwards Scotty, we are not all gods we are the children of God. You are right about God being our conscience because without God and his word we wouldn’t have a conscience, and since many Californians don’t have the word of God in their hearts they choose to live off of “do what ever feels good” right or wrong…. No morals Hollywood keeps proving that daily with their no moral films. Example, isn’t there a law against pornography; yet if you watch what is being shown on TV, Starz and HBO productions such as “Game of Thrones”, “Outlander” etc, I am told you see nudity which includes full frontal nudity in the sex scenes (sex scenes which appear real) and violence to the extreme. Without blocking these movie channels children of all ages can get into them when parents are not home; and I suspect it happens all of the time. CA is a Sodom and Gomorrah state. And by the way when you use god in the lower case you are not speaking of my God Yahweh and his son Yeshua.

          • Harvey Gamel

            the bible is also very close to all the old civilizations stories about alien visitors too…..and you know what? that makes more sense than all the rest of the crap out there put together

          • Andrew Moore8

            Like I said…you believe what you want to believe….and I will believe what I want to believe….But isn’t it funny how aliens wished to contact us 2000 years ago but today they hide themselves and remain invisible……just like God does…..but somehow you will believe in aliens but you refuse to believe in God….Hmmmmm.

          • Harvey Gamel

            I don’t “believe” in anything. Look at the choices and go with the one that makes the most sense. Have always thought that the religious nuts with their strict interpretations were missing a huge opportunity to be relevant…oh well, Fukushima will eventually kill all of us anyway. Probably not a bad thing…..

          • Scotty

            Well said!

        • Pinocchio Smith

          God would have made provision for me to flee. Since He hasn’t done that, your biblical analogy doesn’t fit.

          • Andrew Moore8

            God ask the disciples to drop everything and follow Jesus…They took nothing, no money, no cloths but what was upon their backs, and God provided just fine for them…..Does the bible not tell us “does a bird worry about where it is going to sleep at night, or does a fish worry about where it’s next meal will come from? If God provides for the birds and the fishes will he not provide for his children as well?” Problem is you have to put your faith into the lord that he WILL take care of you which like you is hard for some people to do.

        • granddad1

          He did a pretty good job also around the time of Noah.

          • Then, as I recall, He sent a rainbow as promise that he’d Never do anything like that again.
            ?

          • Andrew Moore8

            Again around the time of Noah the world was evil and filled with sin, just like CA is today.

      • A marcus Young

        We are made in Gods image and we hate. I think you are wrong Valentine. I believe God is a vengeful one who hates when his children mis-behave. Ask Lucifer.

        • Yike! I’ve regularly stepped in it, haven’t I?
          I take my concept of “in God’s image” from Genesis 1, 1-27 where God is revealed as a Creator. (And I truly Try not to hate because I think it’s destructive, not Creative. I think He’s a loving God. ~ I’d rather not consult Lucifer ;)).
          I get the feeling we could debate this ’til forever, so I will concede you your interpretation while I hold on to my own, okay?
          And may God bless us all.
          (my prayers, meanwhile, for the suffering people in CA)

          • RMCS Ret.

            I think you are correct. God doesn’t hate. He did give us brains and free will to use those brains. Alas, sometimes some of us misbehave and like any good parent God metes out punishment. Not because He is mad, but in an effort to teach us a lesson. A little attitude adjustment, if you will.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Exactly….But if your sin is great enough and you have not adjusted your attitude he WILL smite you.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Actually RMCS…..if your read Hosea 8 and 9 you will see that God does in fact hate.

          • Harvey Gamel

            God doesn’t. PERIOD

          • Andrew Moore8

            That is not true Harvey….Read Hosea 8 and 9 and you will learn that God does in fact hate.

          • A marcus Young

            But God did not destroy Satan because he was “too beautiful to destroy” . Satan is an angel of God who went insane so he was cast from heaven. If you think about it Satan was the original illegal alien, and God deported him, built a wall around heaven so he could not return. All we have to do is follow Gods example and protect ourselves from the beguilement of those who wish to do us harm. By living our life right you can pass through the gates and live an everlasting life. Or, you can befriend the devil and burn for an eternity. [Its not me who says this. Its in YOUR Bible!]

          • Andrew Moore8

            Heaven is the perfect place and sin cannot exist in perfection….Satan sinned by having the sin of pride..and as soon as he developed this sin he fell from heaven to earth to live amongst us sinners. This is why the bible says Earth belongs to Satan and we are all sinners.

          • “Earth belongs to Satan”.
            I don’t believe this is true no matter who said it. God would not simply give His Creation to Any being!

          • Andrew Moore8

            Valentine, maybe this will help you understand Satan ruling over the earth….

            The phrase “god of this world” (or “god of this age”) indicates that Satan is the major influence on the ideals, opinions, goals, hopes and views of the majority of people. His influence also encompasses the world’s philosophies, education, and commerce. The thoughts, ideas, speculations and false religions of the world are under his control and have sprung from his lies and deceptions.
            Satan is also called the “prince of the power of the air” in Ephesians 2:2. He is the “ruler of this world” in John 12:31. These titles and many more signify Satan’s capabilities. To say, for example, that Satan is the “prince of the power of the air” is to signify that in some way he rules over the world and the people in it.
            This is not to say that he rules the world completely; God is still sovereign. But it does mean that God, in His infinite wisdom, has allowed Satan to operate in this world within the boundaries God has set for him. When the Bible says Satan has power over the world, we must remember that God has given him domain over unbelievers only. Believers are no longer under the rule of Satan (Colossians 1:13). Unbelievers, on the other hand, are caught “in the snare of the devil” (2 Timothy 2:26), lie in the “power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19), and are in bondage to Satan (Ephesians 2:2).

          • :o)
            I give up.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Well….lets review this….the people in CA are suffering otherwise you wouldn’t have to pray for them…..So the question then becomes “Why are they suffering?”. And the answer would be I believe because they have turned away from God and followed the wrong path…One also has to ask “WHO is making them suffer?” and the answer you must come up with is either it is Satan making them suffer, or it is God making them suffer….Satan to consume them in their sin or God so they return to their core belief in him….SO…..one must deduce that either God has allowed Satan to rain down fire upon the sinful for their disregard for Gods laws……OR…..God himself is raining down fire upon the sinful in hopes of them returning back to his ways….Either way it is clear and plain that the people of CA are living in a sinful environment which God does hates…..and since we are supposed to turn our backs upon the sinful like Lot was instructed to do in Sodom and Gomorrha, I will turn my back upon CA in hopes that they return to the ways of God.

          • wilypagan

            I’m here in CA and I am not suffering one bit. You are delusional and using ancient texts written by men to justify your own hate and resentment.

          • Andrew Moore8

            And that would be exactly why your state is on fire……

          • I pray none will be harmed by that fire – a regular occurrence in CA often because of some of their silly laws against protecting themselves and the land against such devastation.
            And now I must leave and mail some Christmas packages so they’ll arrive in time!

        • Andrew Moore8

          Exactly….if god has the power to hate sin then we also have the power to hate sin….if god has the power to love then we have the power to love….if god teaches us to turn our backs to evil ones who are lost to Satan’s ways then so be it…..we should turn our back upon them.

        • Living in the Times

          Correct in that God hates sin. I think He just rolls His eyes at us and wonders how we can be sooo very dense when He offers us everything.

          • Andrew Moore8

            God has been very clear about how he deals with us sinners….First he forgives us….if we continue, he then punishes us in hopes that we return to his ways and laws…..and if we continue, he then smites us.

          • He is, of course, deeply disappointed when we go astray, but when He gave us free will, He knew it would be inevitable sooner or later.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Ahhhh….and that would be why he gave us his only son to pay for our sins and give us a path to eternity with him…..

          • LOL! I love the thought that He “rolls his eyes”, but I think he also sighs and shrugs. 😉
            I think he knew we would be at times.

          • Scotty

            I’m sure it is. I’d ask the 6 million Jews killed in gas chambers how they feel about it but they’re all dead, so I can’t ask them. I have no problem whatsoever with people who believe in God. I realize that 75% of Americans believe in God, and I’m just fine with that. But I asked myself where was God while women holding their babies were herded wholesale into gas chambers. Where was God then. I answered my own question. The answer was not there. So that’s where I stand.

          • Andrew Moore8

            You do understand that the jews are Gods chosen people don’t you….They will always be persecuted by the enemy and by Satan because of it….It was not God who herded them into the Gas chamber but men like yourself who refused to believe and follow the rules of God.

        • Harvey Gamel

          God was made in our image….isn’t it convenient that he has all the same flaws and faults we do. By accounts he is petty, vindictive, incredibly jealous just for starters….

          • Andrew Moore8

            God was not made in our image…..we were made in his image…..big difference.

      • Zehara

        I’m confused didn’t in Romans 9:10-13 God said “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.”

        • It’s there alright. I disbelieve He ever said it.

          • Andrew Moore8

            So you disbelieve the bible? Or are you cherry picking what fits your lifestyle which we have also been warned about people like you who do such things.

          • I think you’ve “jumped to confusions” (as my husband would have said) here. I dislike the word “hate” as it conjures up in my mind a black hole – an anti-light, if you will – that would, therefore, be alien to God. Grant you, this is probably strictly personal – and if “cherry picking”, so be it.

            I leave you with this from a language scholar, Jack Kilmon who believes with most scholars that Jesus and his followers spoke Aramaic:

            ” In Greek MISEI is “hate” where the Aramaic word SAneh means
            “hate” and ALSO “set aside.” The “set aside” reading makes
            more sense of this difficult pericope and COULD point to a
            case where Greek did not transmit the Aramaic idiom that
            originally left the mouth of Jesus. The same situation
            also applies to the Aramaic idiom for “sins” from xwbyn
            “hayabeen” translated as “debts” OFEILHMATA in the Lord’s
            Prayer and subsequently explained as AMARTIAS by Luke against
            Matthew.

            Aramaic, therefore, can be a tool in understanding a Greek
            rendering of a “sayings” passage that may have had its origin
            in the mouth of the historical Jesus…but NOT definitive. “

          • Andrew Moore8

      The public employee unions run West F*cktardistan, therefore, most of the state’s expenditures are pumped into the unfunded public employee pension liability.

      Regarding firefighters, because salaries and benefits are exorbitant, it’s cheaper for municipalities to pay a few firefighters a ton of overtime than massively hire new recruits.

      Regarding illegal invaders, they’re mostly needed as nannies and landscapers.

  • Edman

    They don’t manage the forests due to the tree hugging naturalist, who don’t bath or brush their hair or teeth, because everything should be left in it’s natural state. In Judeo-Christian belief, we are stewards of the earth & should take care of it, sometimes that means control-burning the underbrush to prevent these disasters. Texas does this in the Sabine National Forest and you don’t hear of many out of control wild fires in deep east Texas.

    • A marcus Young

      These fires are started by homeless illegal immigrants. The problem will not go away until the Feds intervene.

      Why the retards don’t do controlled burns is beyond me. You would have thought they’d learned their lesson sometime in the last 50 or so years. Tree huggers is their problem along with the indiots in government that listen to them.

      • Frank2525

        1960 to 1961, I was stationed at Travis AFB, California. and they had these wildfires then too. That country gets so dry and drought is annual problem in some part of California. When a fire broke out then from lightning, on bottles reflecting heat of sun, the firefighters would head out to area to contain the fire. But as soon as that news hit the radios or televisions, the firebugs living in California would rush out and fires would break out everywhere, in flat fields, forests, and even in towns, and spread rapidly. Fire makes its own winds and weather changes. I saw where ranchers and farmers had plowed their fields n broad, fresh earth, near roads or highway. There was also the smokers in cars, who threw butts out car windows that started Wildfires, burning thousands of acres.
        —— Illegal aliens now do that too, but there has always been that element in California to make mischief for other people, not just tree huggers, or winos. General attitudes among the youth to like to see fires out of control.

        • aldoro

      Jerry Brown is the ‘leader’ of the whacko’s along with his girlfriend Nancy Pelosi!

      Edman, CA is using the tax payers money to support sanctuary cities and illegals there is no money for conservation.

    • Lori2017

      Exactly. We used to do the burns, environmentalists, EPA, etc., have made it impossible.
      Politics is trying to squeeze out all of the horse properties too. SAD.

    This Is Sad ..I feel bad for innocent people. How did THIS Fire get Started ? Seems to be a Lot of “Out of the blue wildfires” in CA.

    • Andrew Moore8

      I don’t feel sorry for the libtards….I hope that all their homes and belongings get burned to the ground and they have to come crawling to us conservatives who are usually prepared for these kinds of things…..Bring their “white privilage” and come a begging for my help….and the blacks can bring their “black lives matter” and their “kill whitey” and their “only good pig is a dead pig” bs and come beg….I hope to god pelosie’s house is burned to the ground with her and moonbeam in it.

      Innocent people ? They are not innocent when they stand by and let a virtual Paradise be turned into a sinful state of Hell. There is a price to be paid for disrespecting God’s Law.

    It’s called land management & immigration control, without it this is what’s to be expected. I’m sympathetic toward the innocent…”F” the rest!

  • landy fincannon

    Timed with the Santa Ana winds. Sure seems suspicious to me.

          I think they have F’d themselves…

    • Tom eee

      Amen so they get used to the Real thing

  • Kathryn Loveless

    That’s awful, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

    • Andrew Moore8

      I would….libtards deserve everything they are getting….Only thing that would make it better is after god burns it to the ground he then gives them an earthquake that splits them off from the rest of us and sinks it.

        Send one of the little fat kid’s missiles to the San Andreas fault. I’d laugh while they all drowned.

      • wilypagan

        You are an evil person to wish death and destruction on your fellow citizens.

        • Andrew Moore8

          Those so called citizens have turned their backs upon the rest of us and mocked us and our laws…mainly sanctuary city status and others…..So it is those evil people who have earned the wrath of my hate and discontent towards them…..and I really couldn’t care less what you think.

  • kaiju

    Southern California always looked like hell to me.

    • Andrew Moore8

      I lived there for about 20 years….IT IS HE//.

      • It is!!!

      • wilypagan

        Had to leave, eh? Probably because you can’t afford it. Your resentment is clear.

        • TexasDeplorable1134

          Well, all I can say is that it is nice to finally see the SALT deductions removed from the US tax-payer burden. (Hint: Elect people who are fiscally responsible to their constituents and it wouldn’t be so expensive to live there)
