The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul. Psalm 22:29
American forests are another example of why you do not want Marxists controlling anything on the this scale. After forty years of liberal activists having absolute control of these forests, they are dying and burning in record numbers. The smoke and ash in the Western skies are now a common sight as their forests are being burned to the ground.
This summer there was a lightning strike up in the Mt Washington wilderness which started a small fire. It was spotted immediately from satellite and reported to the Forest Service to send a small group of fire fighters out and quickly extinguish it. Rather than putting it out the debate in Moscow on the Potomac was weather to put it out or let it burn. This discussion went on for a week as the small fire turned into a 50,000 acre forest fire when the firefighters were sent out to fight the fire taking weeks and millions of dollars to extinguish.
The liberals in the District of Corruption preached for decades if we set the forests aside they will magically become healthy old growth because man is no longer damaging them. So the Forest Service has banned the loggers from the most valuable forests in the world and let them manage themselves since Gaia can heal the earth. That is like telling a farmer to plow his fields under and if he would allow Mother Earth to run his farm there will suddenly be rows of corn for the next forty years if you chant and dance to drums.
The forests are a complex environment which needs to be managed or you will have the most aggressive forests species choking out the other trees and this is what we have going on now. The set aside program has allowed the fast growing trees such as Lodgepole Pine to overgrow choking out every other species including their own.
This species grows like a weed to reach the sun and grows in huge patches with the heartiest tree not allowing slower growing trees to get sunlight or water and minerals. This leaves millions of dying and dead trees standing in the forests.
The dead and dying trees are susceptible to disease and bugs such as the Pine Beetle which made a huge swath throughout the Cascades and Rockies fifteen years ago from the top of Canada to the Mexican border. The Pine Beetle added to the massive quantities of dead trees standing in the forests drying in the sun adding to the fire hazard as these trees became tinder dry waiting to ignite into a raging fire.
After forty years of neglect thanks to Marxist activists like the Sierra Club, these forests have become hundreds of thousands of square miles of firewood waiting to burn. They used the junk science of the extinction of the Spotted Owl as an emotional tool to close the forests to logging which actually manages and eliminates those dead trees from the forest ecosystems making the forests healthier. The Spotted Owl fraud has been disproven when they found the Horned Owl was hunting the Spotted Owl into extinction. Now the forests are filled with these dead drying trees full of disease and bugs spreading to healthy trees and making that fuel load even heavier and the only way it is eliminated is by massive fires.
These dead trees and heavy underbrush has made these forest fires into furnaces which kill everything in their path. During one massive fire in Montana there were thousands of elk, deer, bear and every other species found dead after the fire. They become disoriented and trapped in the fire as their escape paths are choked off and succumb to the smoke and heat to be burned alive. These fires burn far hotter than any temperatures they have seen in the past. The average temperatures in the old forest fires or in properly managed forests used to be 700-800 degrees and now these blast furnaces are burning over 1000 degrees scorching everything in their path.
The blast furnace temperatures literally sterilize the earth. What this means is they sterilize the ground up to a foot into the soil which is where all the nutrients are. The forests are built on the complexity of micro-organisms in the ground and these fires are eliminating those microbes from the soil. These microbes and minerals do not come back to that soil for hundreds of years and nothing will grow in those areas for decades or hundreds of years due to the heat these forests are generating. When you actually get down to the microscopic life of the forests the chemical exchanges between the ground and the trees is a miraculous occurrence which these fires are destroying for hundreds if not thousands of years. The fragility of this relationship is being destroyed due to neglect causing these massive natural blast furnaces.
The Marxists have used these forests as an emotional club to destroy the lumber industry. The Spotted Owl was used to make everyone go along with them just like every other one of their enemies in capitalism. Just as their other scientific frauds like Acid Rain, DDT, Global Warming and Peak Oil they use these made up crisis to make people adhere to their socialist economic agenda by closing down these industries which are the lifeblood of America.
Everyone wants to save the cute owls or save a tree.
They have used trees and owls as emotional attachments to get the masses to adhere to their way of thinking.
These Marxists are some of the most manipulative marketers in the world in that they are able to sell poison candy to the people who will not only buy and eat it but believe there are drinking from a holy chalice while they do. They have turned these campaigns into religious movements telling people they can make themselves better by drinking this holy water even if it is killing them as they drink.
The only thing we can do to save the forests now is to begin managing them properly. They are dying on a massive scale and the fires are only going to get worse as more and more of these forested lands burn. They are seriously damaged with so much dead and dying fuel adding to the time bomb. We are likely only a decade or so from losing them completely as massive fires roll through sterilizing thousands of square miles for hundreds of years. This years record snow packs and rain only added to the problem as the grass grows, dies and becomes an igniter. There is only one real solution to the ultimate death of the forests and that is man and specifically loggers being used to manage the forests back to health.
A group of concerned citizens have formed a group called Forests for Oregon (ForestsforOregon.net) to petition the government to sell the Federal Lands to the public like the Eastern States for proper management. It is time to begin healing the forests rather than worshiping them as they burn. If you want to save the forests contact this group to see what you can do to become a part of turning the forests back to the productive engine it needs. These forests can become assets rather than liabilities if they would be managed properly and made into the gift God had intended they be.
Pray America woke
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
McMaster and Tillerson...no telling what they will say. McCain better not con McMaster into agreeing with him on anything.
‘Though she’s not often on these Sunday morning threads, Kaslin contributes much to FreeRepublic.
She could use our help now
Morning AB, All. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and keeping the peace with gentle thread policing. Thank you Bray for weekly written wisdom, Thank all yon contributors for excellent commentary to flesh it all out.
Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.
Pay attention to posts by Rodguy. He survived the hurricane and knows everything.
Trump crowds fills Bedford Park; Steve Bannon speaks. Hillary’s book.
Charlie Rose, the only TV pundit WORSE than Jake Tapper.
Anyway, Bannon said that the firing of James Comey was one of the top dumbest political moves in modern times.
I am so sorry, but James Comey deserved to be fired and Mr. Bannon, while I kind of respect your take on things, with this assertion you are throwing us citizens under the bus by saying keeping a very corrupt FBI director on board is bad politically .I ask you STEVE WHAT ABOUT WE THE PEOPLE????
That’s the big problem I have with Bannon. Sure, he might be good for the politicos, fixing this case, taking care of that ..but what about us peons?
Don’t we deserve a decent, honest Director of the FBI that will be investigating US????
That comment really rubbed me the wrong way.
She said that she sat and listened to Donald Trump’s speech and it was a “white rant” or some such reference to white people.
President Trump did not make one single comment about the race of anybody and Hillary, getting on my nerves .go away.
We didn’t want you AND WE STILL DON’T WANT YOU!!!!
Go away already.
Hillary an hour late, gives them 12 seconds.
I don’t like Hillary Clinton, this is no secret. In fact, I despise her.
Now I don’t know her personally, but I have read plenty.
She has a new book “What Happened” and we are supposed to read it and finally understand why “she”, whose turn it was, would have won if there wasn’t a bunch of turds all around her.
Yesterday she shows up an hour late for a book signing. I’d love to ask those idiots waiting in line for this prima donna how do they love her now?
No selfies allowed, heh. And only 12 seconds spent with those who waited an hour.
An awful person. An awful, awful person.
Some juicy political gossip; that awful telethon and blind, stupid Stevie Wonder
So we hear Anthony Scaramuchi (The “Mooch”) and Fox’s Kimberly Gilfoyle are an “item”.
Gilfoyle is quite the looker, known for a well-made up face, shoes up to her neck, tight dresses and was once married to Gavin Newsome of San Francisco.
Scaramuchi is known for being the White House Press Secretary for about a week, got fired, and left his wife who just gave birth.
Now I might have some of these details not exact but hey, it’s gossip.
As I paraphrase.
Heh. Well I must be blind and dumb because hurricanes have been happening since the beginning of time and global warming does NOT cause them.
And no, there is no global warming beyond the normal ebb and flow of weather upon this planet since the dinosaurs.
But Stevie Wonder and the rest of those thugs and thieves no everything.
President Trump goes to Florida, Delaware slides down as great place to have a business.
President Trump visited Florida yesterday and it was all about DACA and The Wall.
I do think Trump waffled a bit about the order in which these so-called former illegal children would get amnesty (I don’t care what they call it, it’s what it is) and when the Wall will be built.
He wheeled and dealed with Pelosi and Schumer, two of the most dishonest people on the planet.
At any rate, Trump has done a wonderful job of handling these hurricanes as a leader and as someone who genuinely cares.
There is no justice to be found in any Delaware court. Take it from me, a normal citizen who’s had the hell beat out of her for things she did not do.
If you’re looking for justice, just bypass Delaware.
Funny Irma story
Below, a pair of thieves and scoundrels STEAL A FREAKING LIGHT POLE!!!
There it is on top of their car. Did they think no one would notice?
Dear Lord what a lineup of corrupt, worthless trash.
The only decent one is Tom Cotton. How did he manage to sneak in there?
Compilation of top ten dumbest things so far this year, politically. Only got six so far, welcoming entries.
The infamous Mitch McConnell comment about having a president who does not know what he’s doing is the number two in stupid political action in 2017.
For the record and for a smile, appointing that Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director is one of the top ten of this category. What was Trump thninking?
John Mccain’s vote AGAINST repeal and replace obamacare. He won’t go down in political history as a hero. This action will be remembered as a selfish act of revenge and anger.
Steve Bannon saying firing Comey was dumbest political move of modern times. Comey is Director of US, the people’s , FBI. Just because keeping him around would benefit the elected politically and keep them in the know .NO he’s a crook and a liar and Mr. Bannon I used to really like you but you forget who those political cheats represent.
Hillary Clinton’s entire book “What Happened” is a big mistake, beginning with the title.
I'm sensing a metaphor regarding demographics.
You are a very wise person.
Thanks for thread A.B. Looks like Donald may be wavering on Paris Climate Deal.
Interesting lineup on the talk shows today....
Oh does it now.... does it really.
As an Ill-Annoy resident I will preemtively apologize for the appearance of our Sack of Durbin.
Noot on the panel.
It appears the WSJ article was another lie.
