Across the Pacific Northwest, firs are dying in record numbers as beetles, fire, and extreme heat

test the trees’ endurance.

Fir trees in the Pacific Northwest have died off in record numbers in 2022 after three years of severe drought and heat waves, according to U.S. Forest Service researchers.

In some parts of Oregon, more than half of the fir trees have died, clearly visible as the evergreen conifer turns brick red. These mortality events are not unheard of, but this is twice as bad as any that has been recorded since the agency started tracking forest health in 1947.

TFG's Border wall in Texas is about to fall over.

The report confirms a ProPublica and Texas Tribune investigation that found the privately built fencing could collapse during major flooding. The federal government resisted making the findings public for more than a year.
… According to the report, the fencing doesn’t meet basic international building code and industry standards and has a foundation far shallower than border barriers built by the federal government.


Who put it up, you ask?

This is outrageous. Toxic sports bras are 22 times over safe regulations.

It’s no wonder that breast cancer is out of control.

Sports bras sold by Athleta, PINK, Asics, The North Face, Brooks, All in Motion, Nike, and FILA were all tested for BPA in the past six months, and the results showed the clothing could expose wearers to up to 22 times the safe limit of BPA, based on standards set in California, according to the Center for Environmental Health.

There are new developments in the Fentanyl overdoses across the country. Talk to your kids.

Something bigger is going on here.
I think there is a deliberate killer out there targeting children. There are way too many busts getting a lot more fentanyl that is dosed to KILL.
They are coloring the tablets to look like candy.
This PA talks about the 11 deaths TODAY at her hospital.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says it served a residential search warrant which resulted in three kilos of fentanyl being seized last week.
According to the DEA, the three kilos of fentanyl seized is enough to kill up to 1.5 million people.
In addition, JSO says .26 kilos of cocaine, and over 6,000 counterfeit pills containing fentanyl were seized.


According to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, Kimberli Guadalupe Torres-Marin, 26, and Alexa Torres-Marin, 19, were pulled over on Aug. 24 while they were headed toward Phoenix. In the car, Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies said they found more than 850,000 counterfeit pills laced with fentanyl in duffle bags.

“Two out of five counterfeit pills that come across our border are laced with lethal doses of fentanyl,” said Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell. “These drugs are being marketed to our youth in the most proliferous ways and are being produced in candy-like colors.”

Is this a woman from DU? I saved this in 2016 right after TFG was elected.


I can’t for the life of me figure out who it is. Especially great diatribe by the way.
Wish I knew who she is.

Yes, DeSantis was just taking clues from Texas Gov Abbott all along.

“Since April, Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas has bused over 7,900 migrants from the state to Washington, D.C. In August, he began sending migrants to New York. Now, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida is getting in on the act, sending two planeloads of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. To hear Mr. Abbott tell it, he’s calling the bluff of blue-state mayors who claim to welcome undocumented immigrants. It’s also part of a not-so-secret Republican plan to whip up anger against Democrats ahead of the midterm elections.”


Now Abbott is sending migrants to San Francisco.

Seeing that this last migrant plane flights cost the Taxpayers $12 million and remembered this:

“ Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and top state lawmakers shifted around roughly $1 billion in federal coronavirus aid to help pay for their campaign to arrest migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, exposing gaps in a law meant to bolster the country’s response to the ongoing pandemic.”

And when Biden refuses to send more $$ Abbott just takes it out other funds.

Chris Pineworth asks why do liberals think Trump supporters are traitors?

A little stroll down Memory Lane about exactly why liberals hate Trump supporters.
A great thread that is too long to post here. I urge you to read it all.
