Couple escapes fire by jumping in pool, then watches their home burn down
Oddly, their house burned from a fire caused by a transformer from a downed power line, and not by the approaching Witch Fire itself, which their neighborhood was in the process of preparing for. They were interviewed today on KGTV in San Diego. Story at:

1. Can we believe anything the media says? Was it really a transformer?
I hope so for the couple.

However, we must demand the truth.

The press has lied to us so much and continuously.

If they lied to us all the way back to the Kennedy assassination, the full truth about Watergate, the real truth about the Vietnam war, RFK assassination, the Martin Luther King assassination, Malcolm X assassination, the Paul Wellstone assassination and September 11th, so what won't they lie about?

We all must ask what is true that the media is telling us?

2. The husband stated that in the video interview shown tonight. They were
preparing to evacuate because the Witch Fire was approaching the neighborhood. The man stated a transformer fell and started a small fire, and that fire was the one that burned their house down, not the actual Witch Fire itself, which eventually did sweep through the neighborhood and killed a couple who were the neighbors. Hopefullly KGTV will put the video of the interview on their site tomorrow at 10news.com.

3. Power lines started the original San Diego fires.
The Santa Ana was putting out gale force winds.
