Global Warming Goodness Slays Drought In South West

A Strong Start to Sierra Snowpack

https://eoimages.gsfc.nasa.gov/images/imagerecords/144000/144552/sierra_tmo_2019042.jpgFebruary 15, 2018 – February 11, 2019

In Spanish, Sierra Nevada means “snowy mountain range.” During the past few months, the range has certainly lived up to its name. After a dry spell in December, a succession of storms in January and February 2019 blanketed the range.

In many areas, snow reports have been coming in feet not inches. Back-to-back storms in February dropped eleven feet (3 meters) of snow on Mammoth Mountain—enough to make it the snowiest ski resort in the United States. More than 37 feet (11 meters) have fallen at the resort since the beginning of winter, and meteorologists are forecasting that yet another storm will bring snow this week.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) acquired these natural-color images of the Sierra Nevada on February 11, 2019, and February 15, 2018. In addition to the much more extensive snow cover in 2019, notice the greener landscape on the western slopes of the range.

Statistics complied by the California Department of Water Resources indicate that the mountain range had a snow water equivalent that was 146 percent of normal as of February 19, 2019. It was just 44 percent of normal on Thanksgiving 2018. Last season, on February 15, 2018, snow cover was at a mere 21 percent of normal.

Some of the snow has come courtesy of atmospheric rivers, a type of storm system known for transporting narrow, low-level plumes of moisture across long ocean distances and dumping tremendous amounts of precipitation on land.

The condition of Sierra Nevada snowpack has consequences that go well beyond ski season. Spring and summer melt from the Sierra Nevada plays a crucial role in recharging California’s reservoirs. Though conditions could change, California drought watchers are cautiously optimistic that the boost to the snowpack will insulate the state from drought this summer.

The reservoirs are already in pretty good shape. Cal Water data show that most of the reservoirs are already more than half-full, and several have water levels that are above the historical average for the middle of February.

Los Angeles Uncontrolled ‘MediEval’ Typhus Outbreak

Residents and officials in the city of Los Angeles, California are horrified that their city has descended into a third world hellscape of poverty and disease. The typhus outbreak raging through the city is a flea-borne disease often reserved for socialist and poverty-stricken dystopias such as Venezuela.

https://s14-eu5.startpage.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FE7HozzSGakA%2Fmaxresdefault.jpg&sp=5611dc631892df2dce78e79518473b05

Downtown Los Angeles Socialist Paradise

But that’s modern Los Angeles. Typhus is spread by fleas hitching a ride on rats. While the general population struggles under the weight of the government (local, state, and federal in LA’s case) and the homeless population continues to climb up, the same cannot be said for the rats that carry fleas the cause typhus. The rat population in LA is doing just fine, however, as piles of garbage dot the cityscape, making it Thanksgiving Day every day for the city’s fat, happy rodents, wrote the American Thinker.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention‘s website, Murine typhus, is also called endemic typhus or flea-borne typhus, is a disease caused by a bacteria called Rickettsia typhi and it is spread to people through contact with infected fleas. People will get sick with murine typhus when infected flea feces are rubbed into cuts or scrapes in the skin. In most areas of the world, rats are the main animal host for fleas infected with murine typhus. Murine typhus occurs in tropical and subtropical climates around the world where rats and their fleas live. Yet now, it seems that the disease is taking over and spreading, along with Hepatitis A, through Los Angeles thanks to the socialist policies that enrich the political elite and enslave and impoverish everyone else.

The city is spinning rapidly out of control.  As people struggle to make ends meet and carry the tax burden of a city, state, and federal government hellbent on overspending, the area continues to descend into a third world hellscape. Sadly, the return of a disease thought left behind in the Medieval Times such as typhus is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to problems in Los Angeles.  For months, county health officials attempted to say that typhus only really affects the burgeoning homeless population. However,  Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, told NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.

“It felt like somebody was driving railroad stakes through my eyes and out the back of my neck,” Greenwood told the I-Team. 

“Who gets typhus? It’s a medieval disease that’s caused by trash.”  Everyone in LA can now apparently get typhus thanks to the very left-leaning policies they’ve allowed.

Responding to complaints from other city workers fearful of getting typhus, the city fumigated the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Division office, as well as parts of LAPD’s main headquarters, NBC4 said. The deputy city attorney reportedly said she will not go back to work at City Hall East until they also fumigate that building, too.

Downtown Los Angeles Socialist Paradise

Yet that’s all just treating the symptoms of the problem.  The city is spending money they don’t have to fumigate buildings the paid for with stolen money (taxing the residents) and looking to constantly raise taxes to “help” get rid of typhus.  But that disease will eradicate itself when people aren’t forced to share living spaces with rats that carry infected fleas. This is all just a symptom of the major disease communism that’s swiftly sweeping its way through big cities in the United States. No amount of taxation or theft will fix this. In fact, a lot less of that will have an immense impact.

The Stomach Turning ‘Ballot-Harvesting’ That Enabled Democrats To Steal California In 2018

TINVOWOOT, (there is no voting our way out of this)

The picture emerging from California’s election is grotesque. How again did Democrats engineer their strange midterm victory in Orange County and in other traditionally Republican areas? In that election, apparently winning Republican candidates were all unseated as the ballots just kept arriving, and arriving, and arriving, until the results flipped. Each and every time. And no such flips happened for Republicans, just Democrats, after they learned that Republicans were winning. And Democrats say it’s just ‘counting all the votes.’

Welcome to ballot-harvesting.

The Daily Caller has an ace report with a video showing just how that’s done:

Attorney Robert Barnes, on Twitter, noted just how problematic that new practice is:

https://twitter.com/Barnes_Law/status/1069052240256819200 Which is why it’s illegal almost everywhere in the world. California, on the other hand, back in 2016, passed AB1921, a law that actually permits it. Anyone can turn in ballots now, no questions asked, no chain of custody required. Back at the time, Democrats were hollering about low turnout and how getting more turnout was a priority, even though they were running a one-party state at that time, as they are now. They painted themselves as all concerned about ‘democracy’ given the low rates of turnout in their districts, many of which were known asrotton boroughs‘ full of non-citizen voters. But what they really had in mind was ‘ballot harvesting.’ Most of the attention at the time from Republicans was focused on the involuntary registration of voters through the Department of Motor Vehicles, which has led to what was feared: the registration of illegal immigrants. But the bigger thing was going on on the outside, with the mail-in ballots nobody asked for and the apparent real purpose for these unasked for and unwanted ballot, which was … ballot-harvesting.

I sign up for every party mail list in order to read what all political sides are thinking, so I get lots of Democratic Party mail, including polls of members, which I answer, probably horrifying Democrats who open such returned polls, as I tell them to get rid of Obamacare. If they want to know what I think, I tell them. Could the fact that I am on those lists be the reason why I got a mail-in ballot when everyone else in my household gets sample ballots and goes to the polls on election day? Despite my Republican registration, it sure sounds like it.

This signals a grotesquely changed electoral landscape. Turns out the mail-in ballots are all that matters now, because all anyone has to do is harvest, and keep harvesting them, until Democrats get the result they want. I wrote about those lingering questions in the recent midterm here.

‘Count all the ballots!’ has been the Democrat rallying cry. Yet in reality, it was their defense of this sneaky little project, making anyone who doesn’t like it someone who wants to disenfranchise people.

It’s a lie. It’s not about counting all the ballots in the slightest, it’s about selectively counting the ballots of only voters who fill in the Democratic slots. The Democratic operative who called herself ‘Lulu’ in the video clip wanted to collect only the ballot of the voter in the household who had no party affiliation, not the ballots of the Republicans, so it wasn’t about counting all the ballots, it was about counting all the Democratic ballots and the ballots of those on the fence who could be muscled into voting Democrat. She after all, offered to ‘help’ that voter, which we all know means the ballot would be filled out a certain way. Oh and here’s another goodie in this: Ballots can be harvested and mailed even on election day, when the counts are happening and Democrats can see which candidates are performing weakly. The operatives can be dispatched like flying monkeys to those districts to intrude on the private spaces of voters who maybe didn’t want to vote or who were planning to go to the polls in the evening, and ‘harvest’ those votes. And you can bet a certain number of those ballots would be cast by people who were afraid of consequences if they didn’t vote the way that ballot harvester standing at the door wanted them to vote. After all, the harvesters, by coming to the homes, signaled they knew where the voters lived, and theoretically, many of these voters could have been illegal immigrants registered whether they liked it or not by the DMV to vote. Oh, and could the operative have steamed open the ballots to see how those people voted and make sure they were delivering the votes? With zero chain of custody rules, they certainly could.

The specter of involuntary registration, combined with ballot harvesting on the other end really does present some selective voting as well as fraud opportunities. This is the kind of thing that went on in Daniel Ortega’s Nicaragua, where the elections were denounced as fraudulent and unfair by global electoral monitors, which may well be where the California Democrats got the idea.

Democrats have yelled for years about turnout and this was what they came up with. They’ve effectively ended the right to abstain, which up until now, has been an acceptable choice, and like commie place they are effectively making voting compulsory for people who don’t want to vote. Lefties have been yelling for years about turnout, and this is the result: ballot-harvesting, the actual thing they had in mind.

Republicans didn’t know about it. Now they do, and now they will have to set up their own ‘ballot-harvesting’ teams for the next election, collecting only Republican ballots just as Democratic operatives collect only Democratic ballots from people who can’t be bothered to go to the polls, or who have a mail-in ballot they didn’t ask for sitting on their dining room tables.There should be quite some competition for people who aren’t registered to any party, with each side considering those ballots their very own and rushing to ‘harvest’ them first. Pity those guys.

But what we have here is a real corruption of democracy, the end of choice in whether to vote, and the selective ‘harvesting’ of votes as now the new ground game. In the era of 3-D and other high-tech printers, and a very badly run electoral operative, the prospect of ballot stuffing is there, too, now that anyone can turn in ballots with zero chain of custody rules.

It’s not democratic, it’s the sort of thing dictatorships in badly run impoverished countries do, and hey, what a coincidence, California leads the nation in poverty. It’s also the kind of thing United Nations observers and the international community’s usually liberal electoral integrity commissions condemn. Where’s the condemnation for this clearly outrageous practice going on in California and on track to get very, very worse?

[Gay] California Democrat Party Chair Takes Leave Of Absence Amid Sexual Misconduct Investigation

https://a57.foxnews.com/static.foxnews.com/foxnews.com/content/uploads/2018/11/1862/1048/Eric-Bauman-FB.jpg?ve=1&tl=1
Eric Bauman, the CA Democrat party’s first openly gay chairman.

California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman, who is facing an internal investigation after multiple party staffers accused him of sexual assault or harassment, is taking a leave of absence until the probe is finished, the party announced Monday.

No police reports, just a secret Catholic Church style internal investigation

Party spokesperson Mike Roth said Bauman had decided to take a leave of absence “[a]fter taking the holiday weekend to consider the most constructive path forward for the work of the California Democratic Party”.

“Chair Bauman believes this decision is the best way to ensure the independence and integrity of the process,” Roth added. “The Party is confident that the procedures in place will allow for all parties to come forward freely and provide for a thorough and complete review.”

The internal investigation was launched after party Vice-Chair Daraka Larimore-Hall called for Bauman’s removal over what Larimore-Hall described as “credible, corroborated and utterly heart-breaking allegations” by “a number of party staff” who claimed Bauman harassed or assaulted them at party functions. Others including California U.S. Rep. Ro Khanna and the Orange County Young Democrats called for Bauman to step aside.

Larimore-Hall’s email did not include details about either the alleged incidents or the affected staffers. The Sacramento Bee reported that Larimore-Hall spoke to two accusers and a witness before sending his email.

“I take seriously any allegation brought forward by anyone who believes they have been caused pain,” Bauman said in a statement announcing the investigation Saturday. “I look forward to putting these allegations behind us and moving forward as unified Democrats.”

The party’s executive board could vote to remove Bauman from office. However, Larimore-Hall’s call for Bauman’s removal is still several steps from such a vote.

Bauman’s leave comes just weeks after California Democrats made major gains in the midterm elections, winning key congressional seats in territory long held by Republicans.

A series of sexual misconduct allegations against lawmakers, lobbyists and others in politics rocked California’s political world late last year, at the height of the #MeToo movement. Three Democratic men resigned as state lawmakers after investigators hired by the state legislature found they likely engaged in inappropriate behavior.

Again, no police reports, no arrests, no convictions… ever.

Bauman narrowly won the party chairmanship last year against Kimberly Ellis after a contentious battle between establishment Democrats and progressive activists. During that fight, Bauman said he was falsely targeted by rumors he engaged in inappropriate behavior with teenage boys. Bauman is the party’s first openly gay chairman.

Bauman called the rumors “despicable lies,” and Ellis denounced them.

First Vice Chair Alex Rooker is set to take over Bauman’s duties while the investigation proceeds.

Senate Democrats Are Circulating Plans For Government Takeover Of The Internet

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/styles/teaser_desktop_2x/public/2018-08/2018-08-07_10-51-01.jpg?itok=R2sC08C8

CA Bullet-Microstamp Law Upheld By 9th Circuit, Even Though Technology Doesn’t Exist For Implementation

A California “microstamping” law that requires new semi-automatic handguns automatically imprint bullet casings with identifying information has been upheld by the 9th circuit court of appeals in a 2:1 split decision – despite the fact that the technology doesn’t exist, reports ABC News.

The microstamping law – the first of its kind in the nation signed in 2007 by then-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, took effect in 2013. It requires that brand new handguns sold in California imprint the gun’s make, model and serial number in “two or more places” on each bullet casing from a spent round. 

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/struck%20primer.jpg?itok=JJOD2oN4

The result of the new law was Smith & Wesson, Ruger and other manufacturers opting to pull out of California.

Gun rights advocates have slammed the law, as the technology doesn’t exist to stamp bullet casings in two places as the law is written, and even if it did, criminals could replace or file down the firing pin and any other mechanism to “microstamp.”

The law became effective as soon as the California Department of Justice certified that the technology used to create the imprint was available. When this certification occurred in 2013, the State clarified that the certification confirmed only “the lack of any patent restrictions on the imprinting technology, not the availability of the technology itself.”  In layman’s terms, the state was saying that nothing was stopping someone from developing the technology, so it was “available,” even though it wasn’t.NRA-ILA

As a result, compliance with the law’s “dual placement microstamping” requirement was both practically and legally “impossible,” according to court documents from a lawsuit brought by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI). In support of their claim, writes the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, the plaintiffs cited an existing provision of California law, Civil Code section 3531, which states “[t]he law never requires impossibilities.” 

California gun rights advocates say the law effectively bans the sale of new semi-automatic handguns in the state

And what did the 9th circuit say to that? 

Too bad – as residents can still buy used handguns that don’t carry the yet-to-be invented microstamping technology, as well as any guns on a pre-approved roster – thus, the inability to buy a new semiautomatic handgun that’s not on the roster doesn’t infringe on the 2nd Amendment right to self-defense. 

Writing for the majority, Judge M. Margaret McKeown said the inability to buy particular guns did not infringe the 2nd Amendment right to self-defense in the home.

“Indeed, all of the plaintiffs admit that they are able to buy an operable handgun suitable for self-defense — just not the exact gun they want,” she said.

McKeown, joined by Judge J. Clifford Wallace, also rejected the argument that the stamping technology was impossible to implement. –ABC News

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/Roster_Breakdown.png?itok=kms4Yy_7https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/Available_-_Area.png?itok=2qxm51jZ

Calguns foundation executive director Brandon Combs said that the 9th circuit used a less rigorous judicial standard in order to arrive at its “policy preferences.” 

“Really what the 9th Circuit is saying and has said in other cases basically is as long as a person that is law abiding has access to one handgun inside of their home, then that’s it,” he said. “That’s the extent of their right. We think that’s quite wrong.

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/Available_-_Columns.png?itok=Q3OQfuAl

Dissenting from the majority was Judge Jay Bybee, who cited conflicting evidence over whether the microstamping technology was even technologically feasible – and that if the state adopted an impossible requirement that no gun manufacturer can satisfy, it would not help the state solve handgun crimes and would illegally restrict gun purchases

As Breitbart‘s resident Second Amendment columnist AWR Hawkins detailed in 2015, Maryland canceled a similar “ballistic fingerprinting” program after 15 years and $5 million dumped into the program resulted in no crimes solved. 

The law did not call for “microstamping” like California’s – rather it relied on unique metallurgical “fingerprints” left behind by a gun’s firing pin. Each new gun sold in the state would need to be fired one time, and the resulting bullet casing sent to the state’s police headquarters. Unfortunately, while the forensic technology to match a bullet casing with a gun exists – the computerized system designed to sort and matched images of casings never worked – so the state canceled the program

Of course, just wait until DNA identification is implemented:
