President Donald Trump pressured California Gov. Gavin Newsom to continue clearing dead trees out of their forests, during a briefing on the massive state wildfires.
As an official highlighted the impact of the pine beetle devastation killing trees in the state forests, Trump asked, “I know the beetle kill has been terrible … do you view that differently? And now you’re going to be clearing it? Or doing whatever you’re going to do?”
“One hundred and sixty three million, so boy that’s a hell of a job right? To start clearing that out,” Newsom replied.
The president met with state and local officials in McClellan Park, California, where he participated in a briefing about the extent of the fires.
Trump noted that the dead trees were flammable and explosive, making the fires worse.
“Something has happened to the plumbing of the world and we come from a perspective, humbly, that we assert the science that climate change is real,” Newsom said to Trump. “Please respect the difference of opinion out here with respect to the fundamental issue of climate change.”
“Absolutely,” Trump replied.
Wade Crowfoot, the Secretary for the California Natural Resources Agency, pleaded with Trump to focus on climate change.
“If we ignore that science and sort of put our head in the sand and think it’s all about vegetation management, we’re not going to succeed together protecting Californians,” he said.
“It will start getting cooler,” Trump replied. “You just watch.”
“I wish science agreed with you,” Crowfoot replied.
“I don’t think science knows actually,” Trump replied.
Ray Haupt, the Supervisor for Siskiyou County, California, noted that half of his residents in his area were displaced, with 158 homes destroyed.
He said that the population was suffering from the decline of the timber economy.
“We are completely surrounded by federal timber,” Haupt said. “At this point, it needs some active forest management that would both improve the economy of the area as well as increase the water flow.”
He agreed with President Trump that the immediate priority was properly managing the forests.
“Climate change, I can’t do much about that, but as a forester actively managing that forest I can manipulate fuels and I can do it in a pretty short order,” he said.
The president noted that countries in Europe did a much better job managing their forests and did not suffer the same problems that California did.
“You can knock this down to nothing,” Trump said.

Way over the line: BlazeTV hosts SLAM FBI raid on Trumps Mar-a-Lago home
August 9, 2022
"The FBI had time to raid Trump’s house but we sure as shit still don’t know who Ghislaine Maxwell’s customers were. Weird priorities," Chad said.
Is there any news footage of the "raid"? Or did the FBI show up to collect/demand materials? This whole thing is working out to fire up Trump base. Martyr?— Jason Whitlock (@WhitlockJason) August 9, 2022

“There is no justification for sending 30 friggin’ FBI agents to the former president’s compound in Mar-a-Lago in early morning and conducting themselves this way or in any other cases in which they’ve done exactly the same thing,” Levin stated. “The FBI is corrupt.”
“This is the worst attack on this republic in modern history. Period,” Mark said. “And it’s not just an attack on Donald Trump. It’s an attack on everybody who supports him. It’s an attack on anybody who dares to raise serious questions about Washington, D.C., and the establishment in both parties. I haven’t heard a damn thing from the Republican leadership in the Senate! Have you? Not one of those guys has put out a statement. Because they’re weak. That’s why.”

Yesterday, TheBlaze reported the raid.
"These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents," read the statement from the former president.
"Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate," the statement continued.
"It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don't want me to run for President in 2024," he added, "especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections."
