California is on fire, again, all on the Democrats’ watch

Wednesday, September 9, 2020, 8:40 am | Randy Thomasson
California ‘monster fire,’ September 2020

With Democrats controlling all 8 statewide elected offices since 2012, and with 60+ years of virtual Democrat control of the California State Legislature, and with Democrat politicians loyal to the environmental groups, which worship trees and weeds (which is why California has 150+ million dead trees and untold acres of dead brush), why accept smoke-filled air the “new normal’?

‘Brutal’ smog from fires to worsen L.A. air, prompting some to weigh relocating https://tinyurl.com/y2ow7eh8

All this is happening on the Democrat politicians’ watch. Denying his responsibility and proclaiming his unmerited “climate change” theory, Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom is firmly siding with environmental wacko groups that oppose clearing away 150+ million dead trees and untold acres of dead brush — and forcing California children and families to breathe smoke.

On September 8, with more wildfires raging, Newsom said, “I quite literally have no patience for climate change deniers.” But how unscientific and irresponsible is this statement?

California’s two last Governors, Jerry Brown and now Gavin Newsom, conveniently blame “global warming” for the massive destruction. But even granting that summer the temperatures have crept up, one would think this would lead to improved management of forests and brush — after all it is science! But the green allies have long stood against the harvesting of dead trees and the aggressive clearing of bush and attempts to do so in 2016 were vetoed by Governor Brown. Money that could have gone for undergrounding electrical lines went instead to green energy schemes. Overall, the state Legislative Analyst Office found, the fires were less driven by global warming, but by purposeful policies that allowed for the accumulation of fuel, as well a growing development in certain exurban areas, in part as a way to escape the extremely high housing prices along the coast. A 2018 Little Hoover Commission report similarly called for more aggressive forest management in the Sierra, an area that has been devastated in some fires. Last year’s fires cost the state economy $2 billion; we may surpass it this year. These fires are not great for the environment or for reaching the state’s super-ambitious GHG goals: According to the US Geological Service, the 2018 fires emitted roughly as much greenhouse gas as an entire year of electricity generation. Source

“On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years,” he wrote. Source

Why is California on fire, both now and the last few years? Because Newsom and the ruling Democrats refuse to clear out 150+ million highly-combustible dead trees and even more dead brush (https://tinyurl.com/y68bkbrt). 

California experienced 7,117 separate wildfires in 2017, 6,284 separate wildfires in 2018, 6,592 separate wildfires in 2019, and, so far in 2020, 5,924 separate wildfires (https://tinyurl.com/y629q3yy).

This combination of unloving Californians who spread sparks by neglect or on purpose, plus Democrat politicians married to environmental activist groups that worship trees and weeds, thus providing endless “fuel” for a small fire to become a “monster” fire, means Democrat-controlled California is forcing you to breathe smoke, and for many, threatening to burn your house down too. Be glad it’s an election year!

I admire these loving California pastors who’ve reopened

Monday, August 10, 2020, 8:55 am | Randy Thomasson
…and when they had called for the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. So they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His nameAnd daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ. Acts 5:40-42

I want to publicly commend the California pastors who have reopened for in-person congregational meetings. In addition to acknowledging virus science and history, which informs them that the COVID-19 scare and unprecedented lockdown have been grossly overblown for evil purposes, these pastors have not forgotten or “justified away” their Biblical commands to preach, assemble, and fellowship. And they haven’t forgotten or disregarded their First Amendment guarantee of “free exercise…of religion.”

Every pastor who has reopened despite warnings or threats is showing his loyalty to King Jesus. This is not a comprehensive list, but prominent pastors taking this Biblical stand include:

Rob McCoy of Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Newbury Park (Ventura County)
Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills (San Bernardino County)
Tim Thompson of 412 Church in Murrieta (Riverside County)
John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley (Los Angeles County)
Greg Farrington of Destiny Christian Church in Rocklin (Placer County)
Jon Duncan of Cross Culture Christian Center in Lodi (San Joaquin County)
Jim Franklin of Cornerstone Church in Fresno

What’s more, there are 3,000 other California pastors who previously committed to reopen earlier this year, in defiance of Gavin Newsom.

Who are these pastors? Their resistance to tyranny shows they’re men who are loyal to the New Testament, who know the guarantee of the First Amendment, and who recognize the threat of dying from COVID-19 is less than the seasonal flu. So it’s Christian for them to reopen — and stay open — for church fellowship and corporate worship of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. They are your role models for obeying God despite pain or loss.

No threat of a politician or judge will stop them. Neither will they submit to the unscientific, unconstitutional bullying of a public health officer. For the Word of God and the written U.S. Constitution are above these tyrants. Making this all the easier is few police are motivated to hassle pastors beyond mere warnings, if even that.

This current test of pastors is so important. For if a pastor avoids conflict and doesn’t study facts, isn’t this tantamount to avoiding pain (loving pleasure) and being a people-pleaser? Quite frankly, unless Biblical pastors get some hair on their chests now, in the face of verbal opposition and this mild oppression, how easy will it be for them — and their congregations — to, in the future, cave to even more government persecution, more infringement of constitutional liberties, and eventually, avoiding martyrdom by doing the will of the Antichrist?

Now is a time for testing — and training — of those who are true worshipers, who worship God in spirit and truth.

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.” Jesus Christ in John 10:11-13

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:6-9 

“And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write, ‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”‘ 
Revelation (of Jesus Christ) 2:8-11
