Trump administration rejects California on disaster assistance for Creek Fire, others

Source: Sacramento Bee

The federal government has rejected Californiaís request for financial help with a series of wildfires that began in early August, including the devastating Creek Fire in rural Fresno and Madera counties and a Southern California fire started by an explosion at a gender reveal party.

Brian Ferguson, a spokesman for the Governorís Office of Emergency Services, told The Sacramento Bee on Thursday that the state learned late Wednesday that it had been turned down for a major presidential disaster declaration in connection with the Creek Fire and five others.

Ferguson said he didnít know the reason for the denial, which could leave the state struggling to cope with the costs of dealing with the worst fire season in California history. Federal aid can run into hundreds of millions of dollars, depending on the scope of the disaster.

So after the worst wildfires in our state's history, this monster spitefully withholds ALL AID.

Many of the rural areas that burned had a lot of Republican voters. Vote for Trump and if you suffer a disaster, whether hurricane, tornado, quake or fire, this could be your future to. No aid -you're on your own, just like Puerto Rico.

If he is relected he may do this even to red states, too, as he serves his corporate masters who don't want anything for the rest of us.

And today he had the gall to tweet that CA should vote for him, adding "What do you have to lose?"

The answer is "Everything."

2. Did not the Creek Fire burn out of

Federally owned land into Private lands or State owned lands. Last I saw,California lands are 57% BLM administered Federal Land.

But,with the Orange Magot,screw you,cause I say so.

4. Yes, the Creek Fire burned mainly in the Sierra National Forest.

The vast majority of CA forests are federally owned, not state, and most of the remaining lands are private.

7. Thought so,

we have interest on a Claim along the America. Dealt with the Forest Service as well as Cal Fire about over growth issues,these folks bust their behinds helping people prepare and to think some Pansy Assed Scam Artist is holding Emergency funds because of his Vanity,that has to change like yesterday.

3. Retaliation.

Trump is only the president of Republican held states, the rest is us are hostile foreign territories. Now that he's declared war, he probably doesn't have a clue as to extracting himself from yet another pointless mess he's made.

5. In My Perfect World,...

CA would halt its tax payments to the federal government. You are the fifth largest economy in the world. You should use that.

10. I wonder if a U.S. president has ever done this before an election.

5 will get you 10, he'll change his mind in a few days.
Then change it again.
Then change it again.
Then change it again.
Then have a stroke.
