President Biden on Monday declared an emergency in California in response to the severe winter storms, flooding and mudslides the state has experienced since last week.

The emergency declaration allows for federal assistance to supplement the local response efforts and it authorizes the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate all disaster relief efforts.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Sunday evening said that he’s β€œin close contact with the White House to ensure we have the aid we need as we prepare on the ground.”

The storm, which has caused hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses in California to lose power, has killed 12 people in the last 10 days, Yahoo News reported.

The big news is that the Demented One is down in El Paso checking on how well they cleaned the joint in preparation for his visit and he’s worried about the Cauliphonyans. He may be demented but he’s one heck of a multitasker. Let’s Go Brandon! FJB.

Is the Drought over ?

Exceptional and extreme drought conditions appear to be over, but other levels are still listed. Various reservoirs like Shasta and Oroville are still below 50% capacity but making some good gains. Oroville is closing in on 50% capacity.

California should pay for this on their own. These storms have been occurring forever. This is nothing more than redistribution of wealth. The same goes for those that experience hurricanes on the east coast. Federal flood insurance is a scam that redistributes wealth to rich people who choose to live on the coast. There is a price that people should personally bear for their decisions.
